Air strikes should be available within the range of sniper rifles, and be laser painted, as opposed to being triggered inside the "grenade radius".

 

DISCUSS.

I think the Airstrike is mainly for missions, but I see what you mean, I've noticed every time I use one as soon as the flare gets thrown the player(s) runs off.

The current airstrike is awful, the range is not good and the time it takes for the jet to deploy is too much.

 

My suggestion, deploying the flare with the grenade launcher, it would be much better.

Laser pointer or mark on the map would be much better.

As far as I'm concerned it's pretty useless as is

I agree it sucks the way it is but I feel like it could get abused if you just picked a spot on the map.

airstrike should work like the mercenaries or the bounties...

 

you call, select the target and sit back and enjoy the fireworks.

 

the current airstrike system is a POS. you paying 8k and you have to go mark the spot yourself.

 

 

i have used this option a total of 3 times, all during the billionaire days. simply not worth the cost.

 

i'd use it a lot more if they made work like the mercenaries or bounties.

No fine print stating that you actually disagree with the topic?

 

That's not like you, OP.

Lazer would definitely be much better.

Another thing that would be cool would be like a sticky bomb target that you could stick on their car (or tank) so that the plane would chase them down and blow them up even if they're running. The only way to avoid would be get underneath some cover so they still have a chance to get away but the strike would actually work at least half the time

here is a larger question, does R* read these forums and take the advice to heart. Unless they do, all of this is just text based masturbation.

You just stated the definition of an internet forum.  :colgate:

 

OT:  Airstrikes seem utterly worthless.  The bigger question is, how did Rockstar decide that this implementation of airstrikes was actually worth putting in the game.  If this is one of their better ideas, in order to make a good first impression with the GTA0 community, I'm going to hate to see the future, worse ideas.  :bored:

They should've allowed the Grenade Launcher to be used with different types of grenades (Frag, Smoke, Airtrike flare, etc).  Different ammo unlocked at different levels.

It's so freaking useless when we have to set it in such short range like that, as if no one will see it coming a mile away, or the fact that our brains will be all over the ground in seconds before we get to throw the darn thing.

 

It should be just like in (uh oh I'm saying it) Call Of Duty where you have to place it using your minimap, just not across the map or something.

Not only that, but the last few times I've attempted to use an airstrike, literally nothing happened. No jet overhead, no explosion. The flare just sat there for 5+min.

Laser designator, but with a limited range (i'm sure hardware limitations would ensure that anyway)

Yeah I want my laser!:)

I'd like it best if you can keep adjusting it till the last moment. This way moving targets can be hit more easily, as long as you have them in sight.

Yeah they read it. Maybe not all of it, but at least a lot is glanced over.

The current system only really works on cops, if you pinned down on a 4star they can be handy. But totally useless for PvP.

Flare is quite useless... Laser would be much better.

I agree with the laser pointer idea it would be great to get some more range. Nevertheless i have used the flares for those "snipers"" that just camp infront of the apartmets and take people out. Just get close to the building a drop a flare it funny to see them trying to jump off or run.

There's more likelihood of getting yourself killed in one rather than the intended target.

 

Complete Fail on R*'s part with this...a limited distance laser point would work way better,

I love this idea, that'd be freaking amazing.

ide prefer to mark the map AND have a laser to mark.

 

the current flare thing is sh*t.

 

8000 bucks to kill 3 enemies in a mission.

 

what a waste.

It's only ever been effective for me when a guy in a tank was on the roof of a parking garage and I threw the flare on the bottom floor of the garage and the air strike hit the roof. Didn't destroy the tank though.

With an airstrike you should be able to just select a name, just like bounties and muggers. But in addition, completing a stupid minigame that takes 10 minutes for it to be a succesfull hit.

The air strike is only useful when someone is on top of a building, even though I'd rather do my own air strikes with the lazer, or better yet go off the radar and kill them yourself, much cheaper than abd faster than getting a jet.

I think you should be able to mark a location on the map where you want the airstrike
