Acquire Targets is the most stupid f*cking job in the whole game.

 

What has the potential to be brilliant, is completely flawed. Basically, who ever gets the flag first wins. The way it works now is that all you have to do is catch the flag and hold it for 2 minutes, then you have won the whole f*cking game.

 

How it should work is: Once you have held the flag for the full 20 seconds, the flag then re-spawns somewhere else for anyone to grab.

 

It's as if R* haven't even tested it before releasing it!?

 

Edit: So whoever gets the flag, just flies for the edge of the map straight way, and being as we are all in the same jet, all going the same speed, no one can catch him.

lol, my gf always says "calm your farm"

 

It's quite funny, we don't have to play these jobs but we give it a go - good sport styles - but honestly did the playlist last night, came 3rd (happy enough with that) but really didn't have much fun. The children who joined the playlist thought it was awesome however, and two of them got really excited when one job paid them $4000! "Wow, that's really good".

These Acquire Targets are some of the easiest ones in the game. If you know what you are doing and know how to fly you can win in 2 minutes without ever dying.

Yep. that's exactly what's wrong with it.

Would be fine if we were playing against NPC, but there is up to 7 other very bored people in the game lol

I agree, I won it last night, grabbed it first, stayed high in the sky and won, it was too easy.

It's not that simple if the lobby has decent pilots.

It's not that hard to shoot someone in a jet down. Just clip them a lil with your cannon. Take the target.

Bullets move faster than the jets and they explode. Just don't lose your target. That's what the radar is for. And don't rely on homing missiles.

Or land in the tunnels and wait.

Unless you're facing idiots then there's no reason why they shouldn't be able to shoot you down in the first minute, at least 60% of the time they should hit you or at least try to.

 

Nonetheless it's a bit unfair, but not completely broken.

OP is just jealous because he can't shoot for sh-t or capture a flag.

 

I am mostly the first one to capture the flag and hold it. But, I get shot down when I get the third point. I'm not even mad though, it's just a game.

It's really not that difficult of a mission if you're playing with decent pilots, I was playing last night and it was WILD... Cannons are the way to go, if you're using homing missiles for anything other then slowing the target down, you're f*cking up :evilgrin:   I do like OP's suggestion about the point being respawned after 20 seconds though

Is that the first mission in the event playlist where you're all in lazers and catching some ring (flag) between the sky scrapers? If so; I f*cking love this one! Granted, I did it twice but I won each time as I outmaneuvered the other jets by flying through buildings. I agree that they should put restrictions to avoid taking advantages of the system. Also, there's another mission where it's attackers versus defenders who are protecting some guy to fly from the LS Airport to Paleto Bay. I was alone against 2 defenders and the guy I gotta blow up (stupid clan didn't want to switch teams to make it fair). Nearing my target, I quickly took out the closest defender and went after the guy I needed to blow up but I couldn't catch up to him so it was a clear victory. Catch-up on would be needed.

Seriously, it's like R* don't even test their sh*t before releasing them. We're not f*cking beta testers.

The problem is that most players treat it like a deathmatch and, as long as their lock-on is working, they don't mind who they're firing at.  What should happen is that when someone gets the target, all the other teams should converge on whoever has it.  Perhaps if they changed it so that everyone else's camera is focussed on the player with the target, then players wouldn't be so quick to lose.

OP is assuming Rockstar put any thought into these. He would be sorely mistaken.

I'm here to inform you O.P that you just suck at jet missions. If you allow yourself to be put in the position where you're chasing the guy with the target from too far away then maybe it isn't the mission but the person complaining about it.

did that job yesterday. first someone got the target.   then it glitched and everyone left (on their screen i probably left)  the target was nowhere to be found, and after the timer ran out, i won and got $7k/rp3k something. that was nice for 3 minutes of trying to pass in the tunnel in the jet.

It's supposed to be a fun game of tag. Instead, you run towards the edge of the map like a little bitch, and then cry about how it's broken. :D

It's not broken, unless you brake it. If your goal is to have fun, you'll enjoy it.

Actually the person who has the objective is supposed to run away while the other teams are supposed to try and kill him.

Thanks Sherlock :D

I don't run away in a straight line like a dumbass. It's way more fun to fly high, low, under bridges, between buildings... in that general area. The problem is, most people just look for easy money, they don't care about having fun. Win or loose, playing air tag is fun. If you don't enjoy flying, you're playing the wrong job.

The best part of this mission is the team lobby screen where everyone jumps from team to team. It starts balanced, then you have all but one guy on one team, then you have just one team, then everyone abandons ship.

 

If you're not paying attention as the launch counter counts down to zero, you could find yourself on against 7

 

...it's great!

This is something that happens in all Capture-type games, though I've yet to see it in Acquire Targets.  I've seen it happen in Air Force Zero a couple of times, though.

The people here who are all 'git gud' should really consider what OP suggests - how would this not make the game mode a million times better?

 

I have played 4 rounds of this mode and of them only one played out into the gripping to and fro of a multi-team dogfight with the scores balancing out and ultimately the  most skilled team coming out on top (based on their kills at the end) 

The other three times 1 - I got it straight away, lost it, other team got some points and I got it and just flew in arcs and circles for 2 minutes while everyone blew each other up. 2 - I got it and just flew out to sea. Don't think I even heard a missile. 3 - it was dark and this dude got it and flew up into the clouds to never be seen again. 

 

Its already a trend that make the whole mode a waste of time, and as time goes by everyone will realise that as soon as you get it you scarper. 

 

Either by some code you score a point and the flag respawns an equal distance from all players, or they have some set interesting spawn points like knife edge through buildings, under bridges , tip of a crane etc

 

Also this will mean when you get the flag you can choose to go on the offense, instead of running away. 

 

Otherwise this game mode which can be hella hella fun will just live in the LTS part of your phone to only be pressed accidentally or by GTA hipsters.

You should really lose the flag after you gain a point.

Why are you granting that premise but dismissing the premise that, as time goes by, everyone should realise that the aim is to gang up on the one who holds the flag?
