There should be more ways to attack a player period.

WTF? like there is not enough ways already?  :lol:

If you look at it, (with the cool down time) we really dont. Call a mugger,mercenaries or put a hit on them. Thats it. Theres so many other things R* could do. We definitely need more ways to reach out and touch someone.

No, this is not like the freaking stupid need for speed sh*t

 

Wasn't it Midnight Club?

 

Don't know why there's so much hate, I think its a cool idea.

Imagine chasing an NPC bounty and disabling the car by shooting a 'stun gun' outside the window, bringing it to a stop.

 

Or using it on cops, it'd be really fun! Or a temporary EMP in races (now I'm getting sucked into midnight club)

I think shoulder fired Anti Aircraft missiles would be nice, as well a a Nuclear submarine.

Yes if- 1. You can have a max of three. 2. They work like a granade. 3. It works for Thirty Seconds.

It would be cool, but it should only last 10 seconds and the max you'd be able to carry should be like 5 or something. That kinda makes it balanced. You'd be able to stop someone's PV, but by the time his/her car would've slowed down to a crawl it'd fire up again and be ready to go again. A delay on being able to throw it wouldn't be bad aswell. So you can't endlessly be trolled by a crew or something.

Sheesh.  For a game that has you being a criminal equipped with multiple AR's, SMG's, Pistols, RPG's,Grenade Launcher,Grenades,Shotguns; you sure throw a fit over a just a general idea.  I swear the GTA community here is bi-polar or something.  "We want more cars, and mods"  Response - This isn't Forza.   "We need more guns, jets, and tanks"  Response - This isn't COD.  Well tell me experts here, just what is GTA suppose to be?  I think it's pretty obvious that Rockstar made GTA a mix of just about everything.  Some of it, yeah I'll agree not implemented too well.

For those that don't know, EMP stands for Electromagnetic Pulse.  It's basically a burst of electromagnetic energy that travels in various wave forms.  Lightning strikes, Microwaves, and and high altitude Nuclear Explosion can cause EMP.  Although relatively harmless to people, it can literally fry any electronic device in an instant. 
 
I was thinking of how Rockstar could release a device like this as another weapon to use.  It would basically be like a sticky bomb where you can toss it somewhere, and it would stick.  Hitting left would detonate it, and anyone, or anything caught within a certain radius would be affected.  A person's PV, or any car would instantly be dead so to speak.  Add to that, anyone caught in the blast would have not only their Radar scrambled, but Cell Phone disabled for a certain amount of time.  So basically that person would be running blind for lets say 3mins, leaving them wide open for any kind of attack.  Of course if the person that detonated the device got caught in the blast, he too would suffer from it's effects.  Just a thought to add a bit of variety to Free Roam, and such.

I think it would be cool if it just disabled vehicles temporarily you could throw it on the car to stop them escaping and wouldnt get the insurance bill

No, the users here are just boring.

 

Someone suggested a flame thrower, chainsaw, and now an EMP but evidently "none of it belongs". 

 

 

Yeah, you know what? R* should listen to those people. More bland riffles and pistols please! :)))

You know what they say about riffles! You cant eat just one!

Though why anyone would want bland potato chips is beyond me.

One of the offensive weapons in NFS is an EMP pulse.

The flamethrower and chainsaw were weapons in SA and people want it back. The EMP is just a whole new different weapon in which people have to stupidly and immaturely debate about.

I really don't understand this world anymore...

Put it this way: we don't want an EMP as it can be ultimately used as a weapon of harassment than one of tactical advantage.

I mostly don't like the idea of it killing the cell phone as it's such an important tool for its user.

Tanks are one thing but a weapon someone can use to f*ck off everyone else is another; GTA may be a mix of different things but a modern warfare game isn't one of them. Some of it sounds cool but alas I can only see such a weapon being a bigger turn off than your car suddenly losing power.

I know, but just because it was in CoD, Midnight Club, or Need for Speed doesn't mean you have to bring it up here.

So no one's played Need For Speed Hot Pursuit?

EMP was my favourite weapon, as a racer & highway patrol cop. Wouldn't mind it in GTAO racing.
