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.


Bounties would have air strikes raining like a monsoon. Laser pointed is the best idea I've seen yet

I use to use them against snipers (put them at the base of their building) but a) it rarely worked and b) they've now started flying into the building. Last one I did, I thought was a bit weak (like 2 missiles) and then a flaming Lazer lands right next to me... 

 

So yeah either make them like $2K or make them balanced pls R*. If a $8K airstrike isn't effective against a tank then I'm not sure how you convince yourselves the $200 tank isn't gamebreaking.

I use them as fireworks when I'm bored, that's about all the use they get from me.

Air strikers are really hard to use in my opinion. I think we should be allowed to put a waypoint on the map or be able to throw them from cars. I barely used them because it's hard to use them without dying.

How about a sticky flare ? 

 

:lol:

 

 

 

But a laser pointer would be much better 

 

Which colour?

 

Green?

I like using the airstrike. The flare thing does get annoying. I'd like to have a laser targeting system.

I'd say maybe red. Just my opinion.

You mark the target via a GPS device.

The GPS is a good idea, but I think I prefer an actual laser.

That would be awesome honestly.. If you have a bounty you shouldn't be sitting around long enough to get air striked anyway. And price of a waypoint air strike should be more than 9k so you're not making easy money by air striking bounties.

Even thinking of balance, I like it!

I'll never forget the day airstrikes became available to me. I decided to try it, assuming I would have to set a waypoint, and found myself standing there with a flare in my hand. "WTF?" says I. I tried to throw it, but couldn't figure out how. Next thing I know....
