Got hit by 2 of them from the same dude yesterday. I'm strangely honored that he felt the need to kill me so badly that he spent a million bucks.

I can confirm the Akula in stealth mode is not safe from it.

The 2nd time I was doing the under ground gang attack in the subway and don't think he could hit me. Not sure if it was the gang attack or being under ground though. I teased him that he couldn't get me and got smacked with it again as soon as I emerged.

If not in passive mode, you need to be ghost or off radar in order to not get hit.

I'm not sure about clean lobbies, but in bad sport lobbies, it's actually abnormal if there hasn't been an orbital strike for at least 20 - 30 minutes.

Yes they still happen in clean lobbies.

There is a parking garage beside the maze bank tower. It is red and is right down the road no less than a block away. Go down the ramp, go past the street, the second street which is a bridge going over the highway, and then there will be a parking lot there, go there and into the red parking garage. That area is 100% safe from the orbital strike.

 

 

Thank me later. This will save your @ss one day.

Got hit once, witnessed couple of shots right next to me, ... But nothing since a month.


It costs the price of couple of beers IRL to get one guaranteed kill, so I'd say mom's bank balance will prevent kids to use it on you.

Tbh I get hit almost every other day. I'm a high rank, respectfull player. I spend a lot of time in a hydra, guess that makes me a target for people looking for one, or those who have just lost a fight with me, which they started.

5 weeks in.

I have yet to be hit.

Although I made plenty of people waste it on my MOC, Avenger, and even a passive Akula in stealth mode :p

I'm 90% sure that those who use the Deluxo speed glitch can't be hit. I tried auto 6 times and kept getting refunded when it missed, until he crashed and then I got him.

I'd set the player's health and armour to 50,000 each expecting something ridiculous. Turns out the Orbital Cannon only does around 3,000 damage to players / peds. Of course, that's still more than the 2,600 health you have when you're using the Ballistic Equipment (armour), so purely for scientific purposes only as nobody would ever have the equivalent of, or more than 3,000 health.

I'm still yet to be hit but I see at least one a day when I'm playing in busy clean sessions.
