RM-10 BOMBUSHKA NOW AVAILABLE

 

There’s no such thing as having too much firepower at your disposal, and here to help you obliterate your adversaries is the mother of all aerial assault vehicles - the RM-10 Bombushka. With seating for six and enough ordnance to flatten a small village, this behemoth is sure to summon a few white flags from your enemies. If front, top, and rear-mounted guns aren’t enough, upgrade your Bombushka in your Hangar Workshop to drop a few additional surprises on your foes like Explosive, Gas, Incendiary and Cluster bombs. Grab your RM-10 Bombushka today from Warstock Cache & Carry.

 

BOMBUSHKA RUN OUT NOW

 

7520fe737d3a5f07d8d30c720bda53345bfd0303

 

 

Put your piloting proficiency to the test in Bombushka Run, the latest mode to hit GTA Online. Two teams of up to four square off, with one side piloting the heavily armed Bombushka as the other attempts to bring this beast down with a swarm of Buzzard Attack Helicopters. Teams then switch sides, and whichever one survives the longest while piloting the Bombushka scores the victory. It’s the classic game of cat and mouse, except the mouse is an enormous Cold War bomber bristling with .50 Cal Turrets and the cats get armed copters. Earn Double GTA$ & RP in Bombushka Run, now through September 25th.

I've been looking forward to the Bombushka for a while, but this event is nothing more than the first in a long line of dripfed content up until Halloween:

 

Sept 19 - Bombushka

Sept 26 - Howard
Oct 3 - Mogul
Oct 10 - Pyro
Oct 17 - Seabreeze
Oct 24 - Nokota
Oct 31 - Hunter (and the Vigilante [Batmobile], no doubt)

 

It's all so predictable - the inclusion of yet another Adversary Mode plus some standard discounts on various stuff, but hey... we can't expect new things every week/month, and it also means there's time for an amazing Christmas update, hopefully!

Oct 31 - Hunter

This feels fitting that it releases on Halloween. Because I know a couple who will wish they were in hell when it drops :devil: :devil: :rampage:

On other notes, is it ok that I'm legitimately pumped for the new adversary mode? Seems like a great way to test out the armour, defense and firepower of the turrets. No need to test out bombs, because I know they'll probably be 200 bombs of fresh, fresh napalm.

I seriously f*cking hope we get a reason to buy a Lazer. Maybe PAs have exclusive access to Hellfire missiles? Or possibly carpet bombs? Whatever. I just got a semi for a stealth black Lazer like the ones I've wanted since day one.
Hellfire missiles on a jet would be f*cking awesome, and actually would give us a reason to use them instead of Senõr Cannon.
He needs a debuff to remove explosive cannon shots. Just for Online, because explosive jet cannons were actually fun offline.

On the off note,
Dear Autocorrect, kill yourself.

I get the feeling that the Lazer will do nothing more then add to the pile of vehicles for GTA online completionists, and won't offer anything new.

 

It's could be a bit of a red herring at 6.5M, especially as it's already available at Fort Zancudo for everyone that's got a hangar there - and you NEED to own a hanger to store the Lazer, so maybe there's not much point? Just be wary of the price, folks.

 

...and my advice to @Quarthon, is to think about your comments before posting them. Research a bit, take notes, judge less...

It's priced where they think it'll sell, imo. 65% of the 'solid gold' Luxor. Anyone without a jet will buy a Hydra, 99.99% of the time. So if you need a Lazer, f*ck you, pay me.

 

$4m slam truck confirmed.

Agreed lol. R* could give us a reason for the Lazer being so expensive, allow it to become a MVP (again) and sell sh*t tons of sharks just by allowing some upgrades like Hellfire missiles, and debuffing cannons on every military jet (you have to buy explosive cannons to get 'em back and it has severely limited range). People would get it for sure then lol

Logged in this morning and the bomber was available but was listed with 2 prices.

The message indicated I needed to complete 5000 air freight steal missions to unlock the trade price. I've already done my 42 steals to unlock all trade prices.

I restarted my game and the trade price was properly unlocked. Just a warning for those with more $$ than brains.

:lol: Nice try on the troll R*
For real though, nobody in their right mind would do 5000 steals for a plane. Even Dan Houser wouldn't.

Agreed lol. Just a point though you could ask any GTAF members on the same platform for a private game on it. Knowing how many pilots we have here, I'm sure many would be up for it.

I played the new Adv. Mode with the Bombushka. Was always the pilot, but that gave me a chance to throw it around and see what I could do with it. Scored 596 in a round against four Buzzards and only two passengers defending, so I got the hang of it; enough to decide that I didn't need to own one. Four long rounds for $40,000, and that's doubled.

Can't see or move around inside (I would have considered it for this feature), moves slow, roll-rate measured best with a calendar, no super-awesome liveries, JATO is nearly mandatory, and all for >$4.4M. I'll pass.

Not even a shirt today.

RIPpy dippy my interest for a PA Lazer fades.

I'd buy 20 shark cards and bankrupt myself if we could do some JC3 sh*t with land vehicles.

Played two matches.

Had pretty equal split between manning the guns, piloting and flying the Buzzards.

 

First impressions are good. It's a little different, and you do need to work collaboratively to survive the longest.

The Bombushka is a brute to fly. It's slow, unwieldy and heavy. You need to leave yourself a lot of space for manouvers. However, just remember the more you show off some aerial acrobatics, the harder it is for your gunners to get a good firing line onthe Buzzards.

 

And it's surprisingly hard to hit the Bombushka, as slow as it is, with the machine guns on the Buzzard.

If you have good control of the chopper, your best best is to aim for the top or bottom of the Bombushka as it's banking (so you'll still be sort of level)

It's also possible to land on the Bombushka in a Buzzard.

 

 

I can't see it having longevity. 50% of the 4 people I played with in the first match left after 1 round.

And of the 8 people I played with in the second match, again half left before the end.

 

I enjoyed it more when it was me and one other level 300+

Most others were sub 70 rank. And you do notice you're playing with lowlevels.

 

Play with friends that can fly well. You'll like it more.

So that ultimately confirms that we can do the supply runs before the dripfeed vehicles release and they will still count. I stopped at the 21st because you never know right? But I guess now its safe to do them and then forget them completely lol
