I've read on here that from long range the explosive sniper will go through walls

There is a sweet spot, where walls don't count any more, exactly.

Don't know the correct distances tho. People do this using the "wallhack" scope, also known as Thermal vision scope for MK2 sniper: you can see heat signatures through walls. And shoot. And kill people.

There's a glitch with the Thermal Helmet that certain players know how to do. I was sniping in the mountains with some chick when she started scoping me through rocks, but only when I was in the interaction menu or using the phone. I have no idea how it works.

I want the answer too. I was shot by someone through walls in the city and I thought it was a hacker.

Bet those snipers are using thermal vision to see you trough the walls. Also taking a big distance, so walls wont render for them.

Yep Executive Search is alot more dangerous this days. Hope they fix this soon. Kinda gamebreaking in my opinion.

They will never fix this gltich. At certain distance you can shoot behind the walls. Is perfect to kill gltichers inside bugs.

Jup I doubt this is going to get fixed, as this exists since the game got released.

 

 

Objects are only loaded visually relative to your location at a certain distance making it possible to shoot through, definitely not a new issue.

But with the Thermal Vision you can see through walls which should never have been possible.

Yep, thermal scope and long range do the trick. Some walls don't render and some do. It's perfect for people who hide in wall glitches.

Actually there's no need for explosive bullets, i even killed people with the first sniper rifle, although you need about 4 shots.

not at all true...

the only instance this was an "issue" was back in 2014 when we were able to snipe people out of their tanks aka tank sniping, apart from this instance and some wallbreaches, people were never able to shoot through walls til the thermal scope thing was added with gunrunning.

You probably could shoot through walls but now you can see them.

You can snipe people from long distances with this glitch if you're standing behind something. When you're standing being something scoped in you can see the target perfectly clear, step out from behind what's in front of you and shoot... great for killing wallbreachers as someone said earlier. It confuses the hell out of people.

There is a certain distance you need to be, I think its two blocks away and you can then snipe through a wall, or so thats what some friends who do this told me.

No, no one is using hacks. This also occurs in Series A - Coke, where you have to kill the fratboys to get the packages.

Me and teammate landed our heli on the beach and we use the H.Sniper MkII with thermal scope and explosive rounds.

I killed most of the NPC enemies inside the yacht and behind the walls.

 

And here is the thing: I managed to kill a player behind a building.

I was once curious and tried it and I got shocked I killed him while he was standing behind a building. This happened once, so maybe one building is bugged.

Nightvision Goggles + Quad Lense Helmet and MkII Sniper with Explosive Ammo is your best friend.. You can also snipe people out of their offices, apartments, warehouses etc as long as they aren't interacting with anything (Sitting at computer, using secretary to get snacks or order a PV)

Yes, If you are far enough while using thermal and Heavy sniper you sometimes will be able to hit other players through walls. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. I tested it when i saw it mentioned a week ago on this forum.

This will most likely be patched soon, However like mentioned above Wall beachers stand little chance, it's as if you are shooting in the middle of a desert.

Is this rendering something that's different between the current PS4 consoles too?...

 

Just curious, for if the PS4 pro renders it all better/further than the regular PS4, the players with the newer machine could be in for a serving.

 

(I don't know the technical, just curious)

Ah, that brings back fond memories of making people get very, very angry at having their tank rampage cut short

Adds explosive sniper using hit scan and didn't test what would happen if you shot another player from just outside the render distance

Theres a glitch were if you have the thermal vision helmet activated paired with either the marksman or sniper that you can shoot through solid walls or even multiple walls ie, whole buildings, at two blocks or more distance.

Ive used this tactic during Stand your ground standing on tall buildings and picking off players at very great distance. You gotta be fast with the sniper as they can shoot you back when they realize whats going on. Ive gotten players outta wall breaches plenty of times using it. If you shoot and it hits the wall instead of the player. Your not far enough. Its a dirty tactic but its fun as all get out.

And no.....explosive ammo is not required, it works with a plain ol' sniper rifle...marksman too

That is wrong. It was always possible, you just couldn't see people through walls which made it not a problem.

 

Have you never seen before that missiles went through buildings, yachts and hills prior to the Thermal Scope?

I agree it's a tedious thing to see, more crappy exploits that is.

 

But shooting those in wall breaches is quite funny, IMO. I bet some get real pissed they can't be that twat they intended, lol.

Further to earlier answers, there is one aspect that has not been mentioned.

You can only see a player through a metal object at the required distance.

 

1. Go out of normal render range.

2. Equip the heavy sniper with thermal scope or thermal vision.

3. Aim towards your 'hidden' enemy.

4. Move until something small and metal is in your way. I tested this by parking a buzzard next to me at an angle and looked through a rotor.

5. As the rotor passes between you and your target you can see them despite the long range.

6. Keep your aim, step aside from the rotor. You will only hit the rotor if you fire now.

7. Your target will disappear but fire regardless.

8. Boom. Red reticule = hit.

 

It's not an easy thing to do, especially if they're on the move and they will be a very small target, so only a dedicated troll would employ this method.

It does however give us a reply to the wall breachers.

 

[Edit] Here we go : Looks like someone was putting the same info into it's own thread as I wrote the above : http://gtaforums.com...reach-glitches/

Thermal scope + Explosive Bullets + Correct distance = Non-cheating wallhack (according to Cockstar).

That's not an oxymoron in my opinion for the very fact that you weren't able to see people through walls/buildings, which made it obsolete even trying. Sure, you could always get a lucky shot but that's beside the point. =)

Really, you never saw that? It happens quite a few time with homing missiles (not sure if normal rockets fly far enough).

It had it happening sometimes during Piracy Prevetion, both as attacker and defender for example

As defender: Missile flies right through the beach
As attacker: through the yacht
:/ lol
I play on PS4 btw

Edit: next time it happens I will save the recording and show you it if you're interested (:
