Does it disorient or blind pursuing enemy aircraft like it says in its description?

It doesn't disrupt missiles anyway: shot a homing missile at an Alpha Z1 farting smoke, heard a big boom, saw the plane slam to the ground and had my name in the kill feed!

Only in Rockstar's head. It's quite short and, y'know, points directly at you.

 

Fun yes, live no.

If it was actually a big cloud making you invisible from behind, then okay....
But now, it's a colorful trail, showing your exact position lol

Because the blip on the minimap and missile lock on the screen aren't enough to know where you are.

Pretty clear that flares and maneuvers are the only true option for evading missiles. Coloured smoke is for show.

I feel your pain, I'm on Xbox one. It's so awkward having both controls so close.

^ Yeah, it's fiddly as f*ck to aim and fly and fire, and barely worth the effort tbh.

it should have been more like the ECM Jammer from battlefield or whatever it was.

 

I haven't seen anyone use the smoke tbh, I just went straight for flares because I knew that'd work.

It's probably worse. Nothing like a big "here I am, kill me." Sign on your six.

it hides your aircraft from enemies and replaced it with a blob of smoke to shoot at instead. a more visible blob of smoke that doesn't block lock on and leads to your position.

way better than being immune to seekers

It'd be hilarious if you could lace the smoke/gas with hallucinogens or other side effects that could alter npc and player moods/vision/reactions.

Make it a one hour per use at 50-100k in price.

Instant knock outs, increased rage but decreased accuracy, etc etc.

Anyone remember the GTAV trailer with the Duster spraying the vineyard workers?

Almost surprised that R* didn't think to implement that... then remember that this is R*.

I've been having fun lightly trolling people's missions with ineffective but stealthy strafing runs. I never expected the gun to be much good though and pretty much bought it solely for this purpose... 😅
