Anyone know? Was it cause people were abusing it or something? 4 different sessions over 3 days, and neither I, or any of my friends can get the firetruck's hose to work... Has anyone been able to get it working?

It was fun to have a working firetruck and play around with. Too bad it got removed, I really liked having fun with the firetruck once in a while. I made the answer clear.

People were using it to grief innocent passive mode players. Good move on R* part though they should have made it so you can't kill passive players with it

It was an error of a certain somebody (Oh Brian) I think it's going to return tho in the next patch 'or so'.

Once they got a bunch of backlash from it, they called it an unintended glitch to be fixed SoonTM.

It's a double edge sword though. On one hand, you have the tools and trolls who use it to grief passive mode players. But on the other hand, it could be used to counter grief twankers who recently got their asses blown up up and go passive just to get to their new tank.

So if GTA:O questions go there, what is the point of having a GTA:O sub-forum?

Yeah, let's REMOVE game features, instead of fixing the broken ones... That'll work. Sounds like pure laziness on their part. Didn't want to code something, so they just put a cap on the firetruck...

It's merely a thread for quick questions.  Those that are most of the time a simple no, and don't need to be discussed any further.

Hopefully that's the truth! The firetruck had so many fun applications.

Meh, no loss.

 

It was abused by griefers to kill passive mode players so it's perfectly reasonable that they remove it.  Didn't really see the fun of it myself.  The water canon had no range at all.  Maybe if it had a decent range it would have been a worth-while addition.

Pretty sure it's a glitch, I think they said they were aware of it and will get it to work soon

It's obvious that there are a very few here who actually visit the R* support forums. Stupid is as stupid does.

they removed it to add tank gun to the firehose, example:

I'm surprised people so many people say because it's R*'s fault. I didn't know people killing passive mode players with it meant it was R*'s fault

Everything is Rockstars fault.  WW 1 and 2 was their fault, as was the great fire of London, the Korean ferry sinking, the missing Malaysian flight, Piper Alpha, the Black Death, Lars Ulrich's terrible snare drum on St Anger, the power cut I had yesterday afternoon, the recession, Axl Rose and me constantly getting splinters in my hands at work are just some of the things that are Rockstars fault.  The list goes on and on to include everything bad that has affected Human existance since the dawn of time.

I just blew the tires out on a car doing a burnout. Is that normal? I must be too used to using BP tires. Haven't poped my tires in GTA V in SO long. Last time I did a burnout blowout was in GTA IV...

Pussies, Pussies everywhere. For Christ's sake. It was a glitch, they're fixing it.
