  I just got the Rhino Tank today and it's way too nerfed. A lot of people have been complaining about it, but I never realized it was so weak until now. After I bought it earlier today, I went on a rampage on it. It started beeping after a few grenades, and then after another one it blew up. I spent $1.5M on this when I could have gotten something like a Truffade Adder and It's not even useful. I think my Savage is better than the Rhino Tank, and it is unarmoured.

I agree. The Rhino is way too weak for it's price and should be buffed to its original state. Also considering how much the Insurgent can take, it's just bullsh*t how piss weak the tank's armor is.

Should have spent your money on an iFruit Watch instead. (Reference to another post you made).

Oh, look, an Insurgent driver who thinks Insurgent should be stronger than Tank. An Insurgent is a little army truck, a tank is a mass weapon of destruction used in World War.

To be fair there have been about 100 topics about the tank being nerfed by now. If you still buy it after those topics, you deserve to get scammed by R*. The Insurgent is also a lot more than a "little army truck". Its called a Light ARMOURED Personnel Vehicle so its kind of in the name.

 

It takes 3 tank blasts to explode an Insurgent, think of how less powerful the gun of the Insurgent really is to a tank. Yes a tank has delayed fire but it will easily destroy an Insurgent before the Insurgent gets any fatal damage on the tank. The Insurgent gunner is also exposed from the back where the tank driver isn't.

 

Yes, in theory a tank should be more powerful and stronger than an LAPV but in the GTA:O world, you pay for exactly what you get. R* aren't going to make something less powerful cost more, they have to prove its worth. This gets them shark card money and the players a badass LAPV.

 

*Just to say, I don't buy sharkcards.

For a tank that costs $1.5M I'd say that I didn't get what it's worth.

Nope. Try again.

The tank can still be lethal and effective if you're smart. It just cuts down on the people who just want to go full Rambo retarded on lobbies.

Play smarter.

The tank is my go-to vehicle, quite ridiculous that it can be blown up before you even get near players. Off the radar doesn't work either as other players just do the same thing. Highly unrealistic and unbalanced that a LAPV (Insurgent) can take more explosive damage than the Rhino. Rendered it useless, could have at least refunded players for the nerf.

Then R* can nerf the insurgent. The last thing this game needs is lobbies full of Governors and Scuba Daves rolling around with pain in the ass tanks like 2013.

The only way a tank should receive any kind of buff, is if R* makes it unable to be purchased, and can only be acquired in the military base, like the lazer. Give all players who bought it a full refund.

YES! 

 

Could erect a pattern however. You see, the Lazer is unbuyable but the Hydra is and has hoverin' capabilities. A buyable tank that can hover will be added in for the next update. Illuminati confirmed.

 

I actually 3% believe that.

I won't argue. I had killed about 20 tanks while I'm on foot at original strength even chasing one player out of the lobby (new tank owner, probably thought if I destroyed it he would have to buy a new one). Now it's not really an accomplishment.

I'm still against the Hydra being purchasable.

The Rhino Tank and Hydra are the 2 main vehicles that shouldn't be possible to buy. Personally I think they should be stolen items, nothing more. Way too many people abuse it for trolling in free-mode lobbies. The modders take it to the extreme which forces me to leave.

They should either buff the Rhino and give it a half-hour cool-down from Pegasus or make it only obtainable from Fort Zancudo while still recievin' a buff.

You know they did a sh*t job at nerfing if when cops can wreck you in seconds by ramming into the tank.

The homing launcher is what truly ruins it in my opinion. I mean, when you can only take 3/4 missiles, you can really do without them locking on and getting you before the other player's even rendered on your screen. At least before people had to time their rpg shots, and if someone shot one at you you could probably see them/they'd actually rendered. It was still weak against other vehicles, but now it's weak against everything.

The only buff tanks need is to stop vehicles from blowing up causing it damage.  Thats it..  

 

 

Everything else is fine.   Any true buff to it would make this thing annoying to deal with again...   Just like how it was back when GTA O 1st started, the tank was the go to vehicle for every squeaker and coward in the land.    

 

3-4 Explosives is about right.     Its meant to be a support vehicle not a unstoppable killing machine.

The Homing Launcher ruined everything when all of the goody little boys got it for free at Christmas. Now a level 20 can easily take you down if you're in a helicopter.

Even worse, rank 1 players.

A tank, in real life, can be destroyed with 1 rocket. Why not in GTA? Because people always complain.

It's too strong, it's too weak. It's too fast, too slow, etc. etc. etc.

And in real life it's rare for people to be in possession of Homing Launchers, RPGs, Grenades, Sticky Bombs, and Proximity Mines. With a whole bunch of idiots running around with free Homing Launchers we need the tank strength upped.

In real life you wouldn't have your own personal tank either so its a moot point.
