Passive mode is COMPLETELY broken. Even when I'm in passive mode, someone decides to be clever and run me over. Also, passive mode seems to de-activate when I get into a car. Not only that, but people can still blow me up when I'm in a car yet I HAVE TO PAY FOR THE HOSPITAL CHARGE? This is ridiculous. Please fix this Rockstar. Fix it now! The community's preaching!

If you're having troubles with passive mode, get a Karin Snipe. Fastest car and is 98% bulletproof. Takes 2 explosions to destroy it, too.

 

The only problem is how rare it is

Passive mode = bullets won't do sh*t.

If you want a completely immune way from any violent action, this may be your solution.

If you don't like violence, why are you playing a violent video game with psychotic players?

Passive mode isn't broken, you just won't respect the "rules" of passive mode:

 

1. Be in passive mode on the ground at your own peril. Be like half the players in this game and get high. Get off the ground.

2. Don't get in a car in passive mode. SImple enough.

 

You can't be in a car in passive mode - see how that could be abused? Someone goes into passive, gets in a car and can run over players with no consequences. So cars are out.

 

I agree the game could be nicer about letting you run around on the ground without being run over, but screw it, it is what it is. At least it gives players a small chance to kill the tank griefer who gets blown out of his tank and immediately goes into passive mode to dodge the well-deserved multiple killings they're about to get.

Passive mode works fine.

 

Don't drive around others If you don't know them , get out. Stay near trees or walls if you are near people in cars. I have made tanks blow themselves up  trying to get it me and shooting. Play chicken with cars. Most players are so excited to kill they don't even pay attention.

 

It has become a fun part of this game for me. It also attracts idiots that you may just want to kill and come out of passive :-p

I'm saying this as a person who rarely uses passive mode. I'm just addressing some problems with it that I've experienced.

Passive mode is the sh*t !

 

Probably the best way to escape tanks, I just go into passive mode and find my way to higher ground and air thrust continuously.

I like how Passive Moders complain about getting run over but if you cant kill Passive Modes on cars they will be the ones running people over all day..
Passive Mode is fine,you better deal with it because its not going to change.

u idiot , the wheel or catepillar track or even dump's wheel can't harm u if you're standing higher than them ( such as standing on climable high wall )

but even you're standing an little bit higher than most of vehicle , rhino tank's cannon can be act like lance thus taking you off from high ground ( although , passive mode still immune aganist tank cannon unless if you're inside vehicles ) . additionaly climbing high building with ladder render impossible to run over ( through , rotor blades still potential threat for passive mode )

lol...   Its funny.. You claim its not broken and then go on to explain how its broken.

 

 

 

Passive should mean passive.  Sorry OP, welcome to what R* or Take two considers passive mode, which is not very passive at all.

 

 

 

Just know.. Then even when you're in passive you can still shot everyone on sight.

It should be ghost mode
no player can attack you, everything just goes through you (bullets, cars, firetruck hose, tanks, etc)
when you drive vehicles, you are invincible, but you cannot get attacked, vehicle can still take damage 
if your car blows up, you just sit there and get out (tankers can still blow up the car buy youre still alive)

As R* puts it, passive mode is "wildly unrealistic."

Passive mode should be when your walking if someones drives into you its like hitting a rock. Problem solved. Passive mode fixed. Can you imagine if 10 people in passive mode lined up on a road and blocked and and some guy drives at them it would be like a car running into a mountain

only reason I use passive mode is so I dont get shot by dick heads in my apartment or garage. otherwise if someone plans to kill me I just go on a wild goose chase around the city to see if they catch me.

I am sad they took away the water from firetrucks. The dumbasses using it always died when trying to attack me. All I had to do was having a car right by my side.

 

They called the thing, and as soon as they hit the button to take it away from the fire dept guy, I would get in the car and start firing straight away, while they have they trigger button busy with a harmless water spray hose. Always worked.

If you don't want to die from some random person play invite only sessions....otherwise your whiny ass is grass. Honestly...you people never played iv did you? What did you think Lamar gave you that gun for when you got off the plane? Go play my little pony dress up or something.

My wife plays this game and she's a bullet magnet online and she doesn't complain like the little kids on this forum.....smdh...passive mode works as it should...deal with it or don't play...you won't be missed.
