To be safe, what I'm asking is how do you, yourself, tell other player's you're not going to attack them? As surprising as it may seem there are people who don't want to kill others. Nor am I bashing those who do enjoy killing others. That's your play style, nothing wrong with it.

 

For me.  I look for dots by themselves, groups usually  means either killing or they're with buddies, and I  either go passive and approach and start doing gestures at them and then leave  passive when I believe I won't be attacked or I  put my gun away and do some gesture like surrender and approach.

I myself am not hostile until provoked, but a word of caution, the only way is to not shoot on sight. However, don't be a dumbass and go 'IM FRIENDLY!' and just walk up to people, keep your distance and a tense moment of each waiting to see who makes the first shot, when it passes you go your seperate ways or bro up. That's all there is to it. But a lot of players are axe crazy and will shoot you anyway.

Use your mic and tell them, hey (jesuskiller420) I'm approaching you don't shoot I'm friendly,

then send him a message and shoot him in the head while he's distracted by your message.

If I'm in a car I'll lay on the horn and go my merry way. If I'm on foot I go into passive and wave.

I just avoid everyone. I've hung out at the air port hitting that "prepare for take off" jump over and over and over and over again and people come and do it with me. I actually seen one of the people that did it with me post the exact same car in the "Rate The Car Above You" thread.

At first he tried to kill me but realized I wasn't a threat. Later on another person joined us, then another. The first and second guy later on died and their cars got impounded and I took him and this other guy to get their cars. We split up after that when people tried to kill us.

I just stand idle. If they attack I defend myself with 16 ton weights and tigers.

Go passive mode & beep the horn a tonne of times, depends on how aware the other player is though, most of them are dumb f*cks who shoot first & dont ask questions later either because they cannot read a situation & realise its non hostile, or they just want cheap kills.

oh hell not the loop, they'll probably shoot you because of how annoying it is.
Not like getting shot at is a bad thing... makes spawn trapping totally justifiable, lol.

Stay away, then I'll know you don't have any violent intentions. You have a map and radar so if you approach I'll assume its for no good.

 

Honking , waving and worse yet going passive wont help.

 

At most there's only 16 other people on the map, its not that hard to avoid other players, if you really want to

I avoid them, and if they get close by I just honk and speed on by.. works 90% of the time, other times I get blown up.

I normally don't go out of my way to be friendly per se but I let people know I'm not a jerk by simply passing by them without trying to kill them. Most people get that I'm friendly and don't try to kill me. In my experience that is about as friendly as it gets in GTA. There are always exceptions, I have met people in Free Roam and they are on my friends list

Especially glorious when you do it while speeding off after PITing someone.

Good times.

Nowadays i'll just honk as i go by, then i'll loop round and go by slower honking, and if by that point i haven't been shot at then i will pull up and see if they want to do something. 

 

Lately it has been literally 9 times out of 10 i'll get shot at, but that 1 time i meet someone it has been a memorable session.

If I'm on foot, I do a salute. If I'm in a car, I do a few short honks. Engaging in a selfie when someone is approaching can also give the impression that I'm a friendly guy.

If someone is waiting outside of a store I am in, I send them a text asking whether their intentions are good or bad.

I find driving my tank gets lots of attention. When people see I'm not blowing anyone up, they cruise with me.

1. Activate indestructible car glitch
2. Drive up to a random player reverse in my Zentorno and honk
3. See if the player is attacking me or getting in my car or his/her car or suchlike

If the player gets in my car, it's almost certain that we are going to be friends (friends = don't attack each other and do stuff together).

One might think the success rate of doing this is not high, since driving a car with a bulletproof back reverse is not really saying "hey I'm friendly", but surprisingly most players didn't show hostility.

I find driving my tank gets lots of attention. When people see I'm not blowing anyone up, they cruise with me.

Agreed, but: this goes well for 5 minutes and then one player throws the first stone sticky bomb. At least this is what I've experienced many times.

 I would have figured the opposite would happen. People going out of their way to kill you

When a twanker is griefing a lobby, you typically hear the explosions blocks away, before you see the tank.  If you come upon a tank and have not heard any explosions, it might be at least plausible that the guy is not an asshole.  

 

Unfortunately, this sound cue is not as reliable lately, since there are a lot of Lazer wankers blowing things up, but you can usually distinguish them as a fast-moving dot on the mini-map, not following the street or road.

Approach them in passive mode.  They'll see the icon on the map and know that you can't kill them and they can't kill you.  Then do a friendly action like wave or salute or bro love or something.

I use the salute animation. If they salute or wave back that's great, time to team up. If they start doing the jerk/fapping animation, well, time to defend myself.
