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)

Holy sh*t, really?

I've got to try this later

Yes, also if you combine the Nightvision with the quad lense helmet using the telescope glitch, remove the thermal scope from your rifle and just use them turned On together combined with the regular upgraded scope. It's a pretty nasty weapon in the right hands on a nice, tall building.

You can hit them, but not kill them. Person inside will get the red hit direction marker and sound but not take any damage. Happened to me last week. I wouldn't have known what it was had someone not been sniping at me before entering my office from the roof.

This game is an absolute joke. 

 

If this was a money glitch it would have been patched within a month.  This "shooting through walls" crap has been present for at least 4 months and it's still not fixed.

Maybe if we convince rockstar that it is a money glitch they'll patch it.

Thermal scope on a tall building = Too OP

 

 

 

But it's great for taking out wallbreaching scum.

It won't kill them though, which is a shame.

 

edit, well maybe you can...

There is the up side, being able to kill tryhard sniper with a bounty that is spot that would make it difficult to get the upper hand on.

I just got sniped through a building today and thought about this thread lol. Luckily it didn't kill me. My opponent was about two blocks down the street.

Wow. Thanks guys, guess I'll just leave the session next time this happen

Never heard of passive mode have you?

 

Seriously this is pretty much the same way snipers have always cheated. Like back in the day they exploited the drawing distance to shoot people out of tanks, back when the Rhino wasn't nerfed into this:

If cops would just stop suiciding into you, causing them to blow up and damage your tank, that would be great. I swear, this game has the strangest AI of any game.

 

I still dream of the day where we get the option to turn cops off.

True.

 

Driver 1&2 cops for example where lightyears ahead of this crap.

 

Ok maybe not lightyears but it was better Nonetheless.

 

Also you're not a real sniper in GTA:O unless you got some cheesy gamertag/PSN such as SniperXnoSkill

There was a tryhard on top of the mall (on the Ponsonby's side)terrorizing an MC full of low levels that hadn't been bothering anyone. I took the elevator up to the roof of Arcadius to let him know how I felt about it. I didn't realize that he had a crew mate in the lobby, so I earned the ire of two 450 players. It was the new guy that was the problem; he kept sniping me... Initially, I thought he was the world's wickedest sniper. He was getting me from unimaginable distances, and while I wasn't paying close attention to lines of sight, as I was fighting other players, but there were usually plenty of buildings between us. Still, I was distracted and didn't pay much attention to the 4 or 5 kills he got from a location that was outside of the expanded mini-map.

It wasn't until I got into my apartment at Tinsel Towers that I realized that something weird was happening. I was in my closet, creating an outfit when I hear the bullet hit noise and see the red arrow on the side of the screen and see wounds appear and blood splatter spray from my character. I'm cycling through jewelry and my girl is getting absolutely riddled with bullets. This pic doesn't show much, there are dozens of full on exit wounds are in her abdomen, but...

Based on the damage arrows, I back out and zoom the map out, and sure enough, his directional dot is point my direction, and it looks like he's probably back on top of the mall. So I message the guy: "Is that you shooting me in my apartment?" He was cool about it. He admitted to it and said that it usually freaked most players TF out.

It does have an upside, being able to take out players that are hiding in wall breaches, and its even sweeter when they have a bounty

Wallbreaching scumbag gets what he deserves. He kills me with his proximity mine when I'm trying to upgrade my brand new Cyclone at 0:06. I take him out in his wallbreach exactly three minutes later at 3:06.

 

 

Karma's a bitch.

I sniped someone out of wall breach the other day, it was hilarious. They thought they were all safe and cozy in there. As soon as I killed them they left the session.

I've had this a few times whilst in my office at Maze Bank. Doesn't seem to happen in the garages though.
