When you go on PASSIVE MODE, you still be killed by players who run over you or anything else.

 

If you were Rockstar, how would you fix Passive Mode?

It's always worked that way. It's also a great way to take down wannabe jet griefer pussies who go into passive mode the moment you shoot em down, thinking they're invincible.

Forget passive mode, we need passive lobbies. Like normal lobbies but with the ability to kill other players removed.

Passive mode should make players untangible like these GTA races which you can't ram another player's car

Passive mode is an awesome weapon against noobs. Just hop in a car and shoot people. Awesome. Then if they almost get you just get back out of the car and golf clap at them. Works wonders.

Also in reverse. When noobs are in passive approach them kindly. Honk the horn to show your good intentions then let them get in your car. Quickly get out and kill them. They will spawn back in passive mode so just go and golf clap at them. Rage insues!

Another treat is when they decide to come out of passive for revenge. They have to wait the 10 seconds before weapons are ready so proceed to kill them again. Quickly go into passive before they respawn and, you guessed it, golf clap that mofo.

Passive mode works but only for griefing and trolling.

Nah if you want to kill everything that moves you should play cod or something same thing.gta is not just about shooting.

 

Passive mode is fine. You know if you're pinned down getting ran over join a quick job problem solved.

Joins 2012, probably has played GTA Online since launch, only realized now he can be killed in passive mode " smh+facepalm ". Seriously though OP, if you go in passive mode a modder can kill you, and anything moving at 100 mph or that sits on top of you can kill you, helicoptor blades can to. I'm sure the fire trucks hose cannon still can but I'm not sure, I haven't tried that in a while. My advice if you're going afk in passive mode make sure you're out of reach of people trying to get cheap kills.

"Passive" means taking abuse but turning the other cheek.

It does not mean "invincible", or else Gandhi would still be alive.

I think it's pretty much as good as it can be.

Just look out for griefers is all. And get out of passive the moment one tries to run you over and shoot him in the face.

Replace it with Ghost Mode, same as Non-Contact races.

Nah you should go play COD or some other crappy fps if all you want to do is kill.

Nope, its fine the way it is. Just dont go out on the streets or get in a car if the person trying to kill you is near. 

 

Worst case scenario, just join a new session quick while your being run over.

 Passive mode isn't broken at all. If you don't want to be killed in passive mode, stay away from the war zones, it's really simple.

Of course this game is more then about killing. But it is apart of the game among other things. But passive mode come on now why turn the game on just to come out your apartment or garage just to stand on the side of the road.

How to fix passive mode: 

 

If you killed a person, that person can still  kill you until you are even in kills.

 

The player in passive mode acts like a car in no contact races. Player controlled object like cars, water hoses, helicopter blades go right through them causing no damage and not knocking them down either. 

 

Also to prevent griefing: After 5 kills a person is given the option to respawn at a different city in los santos.

If you don't want to be killed leave the f*cking session. The problem isn't passive mode. It is you. /discussion.

I agree Passive mode is a joke,

 

I am not a griever, or a person who shoots on sight

But i have a question about the passive lobby concept

 

what would or could we do in a passive lobby that would keep the game from getting boring as hell

Yes i know we could explore the map with friends without worrying about some random crazy, and maybe hunt cars as a group without worry,

But thats all i see a passive lobby offering, if i am missing something please educate me??
