Ok so I wanted to extend on this topic as I can't help but think Smugglers run felt empty without the PvE missions, the Bombuska was dubbed "The Flying MOC" but lets face it, it's not... Now the purpose of this topic is not to bitch about the latest update or to get into the debate about people getting blown up by griefers while on supply runs.. I enjoyed (and still enjoy) the Special Vehicle missions from I/E & the MOC missions from GR... it just seems that it's something R* could have implemented & people would have enjoyed & I for one would have got myself a bombuska, but as just a simple free roam vehicle it just doesn't seem to be worth it... It's only slightly more functional that a yacht..

 

(Poll included)

 

Look forward to seeing a response & please keep it on topic :)

Edit: Just want to clarify it's not so much about the price as much as it's about the functionality... People are buying it anyway warts an'all, the question is, if price was no issue.. rather than questioning how easy it is to blow up or how expensive it is...

 

Edit2: Included a new quesion to include the price as many seem to be put off by that alone.

These missions would almost definitely need multiple people, so no (for me). I'd rather they buffed it against snipers, and gave it the ability to lock a vehicle in place in the back.

 

I will probably still buy one at some point though, if my hangar fits it.

No. Missions shouldn't be hidden behind a 5 million dollar paywall. Didn't like how they did it with the MOC, wouldn't like it with the Bombushka.

Well the need for mulitiple player (up to 4) wouldn't be that much of an issue.. if you have friends online...

Well I agree the price is an issue... it's just that I personally find it a tad boring & I was disapointed with the fact there are no PvE missions with Smugglers run.. just interested to see what others think.. it was as well as not instead as.. an added bonus feature like..

As much as I love PvE content, I actually voted no. Spending almost $6,000,000 for new missions isn't worth it.

Well the question was not so much about the price but it's functionality.. assume the price was around $2.3mil?

I've flown my bombpileofcrap one time... I flew out of the hanger... towards the city.  About 30 seconds into the flight (I had gone almost no where) a hydra put a bounty on me and blew the sh*t out of me about 5 seconds later :p

I probably wouldn't. Soley because I'm still paying a considerable amount of money to access them. It was already bad enough with the MOC to be honest, although it serves more than just a few missions.

My point remains though; we shouldn't have to pay for missions when we literally have a list of over 60 and around half would most likely pay the same. They should have stuck to the Lamar layout or simply kept the missions old-school.

That is another issue.. but there are many other topics about how slow it is... My next poll question will be more direct I think, many seem to be missing the purpose of this thread... I know it's slow, I know it's expensive, I know it's easy for a Call 'O Duty player to blow up.. I know all that.. I was just thinking they could have made the SR update more interesting by implementing PvE missions via this.... Mach1Bud is seems to be the only one who have answered the question..

The thing is you call a mission from it you have to be in it.. and right there is the problem because who wants to be in it... Honestly I don't think I'll ever fly it again. Even if it did something useful.

Well I hear you on that one.. why they didn't implement PvE mission in the first place I don't know.. they could have easliy done it whereby you have to unlock them by doing a certain amount of supply runs, then unlock the aircraft discounts by doing the PvE missions where said aircrafts were featured...

Not looking good for the bombushka lol... Just a Soviet themed Titan lol.. even comes with a patched back door that only a modder can open.. Ok, I'll make sure my next poll questions are more direct...

Dude if only you could also be classy and eject from the plane with the loaded vehicle inside. Personally, I'd load a tank in it. R* need to think this over...

Now that would be awesome... sadly though.. R* logic.. the back doors on the Bombushka, Titan & Cargobob are for cinematic purposes only... & of course the few privileged NPCs XD

f*ck no. It's a 6 million dollar plane.

Well at least it wasn't that pricey. And it has other uses like Haulage benefits and allows you to top off on special ammo wherever you want instead of going out of your way up north to do so.

I thought the guy who leaks said it was the MOC for the sky.

Misleading.

I would like if It was functionnal like a MOC, transport ground vehicles, open back doors allowed in every free-roam mission ...etc, so it could be used to make other businesses more efficient thanks a better logistic.

PvE specific missions with fully scripted vehicles don't interest me. I want functionnal stuff in free-roam.

If it was a fun mission, but I don't see that happening. They would lock it behide ,you need this many in your grp to play or so many in the lobby to start it up.
And as it is I think half the player population is sick of public sessions.

I know... that was what put me off it... I ended up getting a Buzzard instead... I spent a fraction of the money & got a faster aircraft at the same time.. which can also spawn instantly for free without the $23,000 charge :D

 

I thought wow cool.. Air MOC I like the sound of that.. I'll put up with the cost.. Atleast I'll have some missions to play with friends.. but due to the power of R* logic.. it wasn't to happen.. I said this wasn't mean't to be a bitching topic.. but I've caved it XD

 

I'm taking it as read, that the Bombuska is pretty much a flying Wastelander.. rather than a flying MOC XD

I was just disappointed that we didn't get new vip missions for those new aircrafts

Something similar to headhunt would be perfect for Bombuska or Hunter. Destroying tugboats and titans for 30k or something like that. 

We rly need more freeroam activities

I thought I was the only one who wanted more VIP jobs for these vehicles. It pretty much gave me an ever better reason to own a specific vehicle.

I'd like to see it in action against AI. But still i don't want to buy it (even if it was cheaper).

We need a vip mission for it else the plane is useless. Bought it upgraded it and did fly it only once because what`s the point? It really sucks we can`t put a vehicle in it would love to transport the Boxville with it the one of the biker resupply mission from Humane Labs.

 

I mean it`s simple they could just make a mission where you have to survive in it for 10 minutes while npc controlled buzzards or whatever try to shoot you down the payout should be the same like the Boxville mission what is it 35k? Im not sure. Rockstar would probably only need 5 minutes to create this mission...

As much as I would love new PvE missions I voted no.

I voted no as I was fully aware that the Bombushka would be a 4.4m novelty item for me as a lone wolf and I was already interested enough to spend the money on such a novelty item.

I also don't like missions being locked behind paywalls. If a car/gun/whatever is locked behind a paywall I can decide if I want it enough to get past the paywall, even though I don't particularly like that system. But I think locking actual gameplay behind a vehicle purchase is a step too far.

It was stupid to activate the missions through the MOC, it could be done perfectly with the bunker, or with the office computer.

 

NO MORE SUPPLY MISSIONS AND CONTACT MISSIONS. MORE VIP/MC WORK!!!

Yeah, I'm not gonna spend millions,of dollars on a hangar, then do like 30 SR source missions, then spend another 4 million or so on a useless bomber that I'll only use once in a while, for pve missions that I'll probably only do once.

Special Vehicle missions were even worse.

Tell me about it, what a waste....then we have the ones that are locked away cause you need members or be in a public lobby with one other to play.

Would been nice to have a CEO job with with the molotov, go out and shoot down transport or other jets.
