I was ridiculously excited when I read about the Orbital Strike Cannon.
But, like most things in modern GTAO, once I started assessing it and the overall costs, I grew suspicious.
The idea, basically, is that you can waste another player via satellite strike.
Sounds great! But hold on... there's a price.
It's $900,000 to add it to your Facility.
Then, you can use it Manually to locate your target and strike them for $500,000.
Or, you can do it Automatically for $750,000.
It's absolutely devastating, for sure! I was like a kid in a candy story using it.
Or, rather, like a cheap loser hiding in his Facility obliterating an innocent guy and his crew for just playing the game.
After using it, I discovered there's a 45-minute "cool down" before you can use it again.
"Uhhhhh.... what now?" I thought. "Oh, that's no good!"
For me, the only really good use I've found for it is to use against a griefer or toolbag who you really want to exact revenge on, but can't in any traditional way. You know that Level 848 that keeps destroying you in PvP? Well, this is for them.
But the satisfaction is short-lived and it's a huge effort for little gain.
These are my thoughts and opinions, but if I were to advise, I'd tell anybody to probably skip it. Just not worth the $$.
However, if you have the $$ and you like things like golden jets and big yachts, then by all means... go for it.
What about you all, though? Anyone playing around with this yet? Cheers!
Not my video, but it's a good visual reference:
