Fort Zancudo overpowered?

Recommended Posts

vielle

I seriously think that Fort Zancudo should be nerfed first starting with the ridicoules overpowered 5 second response missiles that just pisses me off the most. Everytime I try to land in their base I get shot by a damn missile while parachuting O.O and next the amount of tanks actually patrolling the base seems unrealistic :/

Yeah, because a paramilitary fort (with better funding then the actual army) wouldnt have fast response times ? :p

I doubt a real life military base would be able to respond in 5 seconds with an instant kill or be able to have 5 tanks ready to blow you the f*ck up as soon as you land and besides why are they even loaded in the first place? This doesn't seem realistic to me.

a real life military base would be able to have the missile in the air long before you even got over theyr base, not to mention fighter jets on your tail.

 

Try running into a local military base and check the response time, more so in high alert countries like the US

Yeah that seems realistic, but you have to stick with the placement of the base in the game for it being in a area next urban areas it can't just have missiles ready to shoot that fast.

Lol. Youtube area 51 and see how hard it is to even come close to it.

This can't be a serious thread. I only died twice before I was able to plan it out to steal and stash the fighter jet.

 

1) Head on

2) Ground stealth

3) Airdrop from low flying helicopter :^:

Area 51 was in a stranded desert that's different, but this is a military base next to urban communities and populated mountain ranges. The fact that the base can just shoot you down in 5 seconds seems a bit unrealistic a 9-15 second time would be more realistic considering they warn you to get out of the air space.

I have fun just going in one entrance and out the other messing with them and then trying to lose the cops.

Fully upgraded and armoured sandking with bulletproof tires can withstand practically anything that's not a direct tank shell. Try that as your vehicle of choice if you really want to get a jet or buzzard or what ever it is you desire.

Oh and a lot of grenades and body armour helps. Plus a parachute, there's a big change they'll shoot you down ;)

I'm not trying to get in I've already tooken tons of Buzzards and Jets. I just think it is unrealistic considering I have been hit 5 times by a parachute in a split second!

Oh mate, I don't even care if there would be 40 tanks patrolling, 400 infantry units, 50 sniper marksman and 20 jets and helicopters patrolling the skies.

 

All I ask is a chance for a stealth approach, give me that one and all your other problems are minor :D.

Overpowered? NERFED? Kid if you haven't realized... This is GRAND THEFT AUTO... Not Call of Duty... There will be no driving/police downgrades because of crying on forums... you f*cking idiot. I wish I could smack the complexion off your face for making such an atrocious post. The game is f*cking perfect LIVE WITH IT

You know the military isn't using tech from WWII right? IRL military anti-aircraft guns could shoot a germ off a fly's back, you know, if it wouldn't turn the fly into nothing.

 

As for tanks, considering how quickly an unauthorized hood can get in, turn on, and use a tank, think how fast people who actually are supposed to be there can do it. And there are a lot more of them than there are of you.

It makes sense when you realise that fort zancudo has a lot of secrets in it. (and a gigantic UFO like thing miles above it in the sky)

I Doubt you know what the f*ck youre talking about.

 

1.) If youre flying into the military bases air space..your damn right theyre tracking you.

 

2.) If theyre tracking you...then seems to me theyd have plenty of time to get those tanks on standby to blow your sorry ass away.

 

3.) Being that your ass flies over the base and into it actually proves why they WOULD have to keep anti air missiles loaded....Youve obviously never been to Washington DC. Theres Patriot Missiles parked all over the place in the capital.

 

Very realistic...youre just too damn stupid to figure out a way to get in and get what you want so youre here bitching about it.

Went to the base for the first time yesterday. Jumped out of my chopper, parachuted into the hanger, landing right next to the jet. Hopped in and took off. Was actually surprised that I pulled it off on my first try.

 

OP why dont you try to think of ways around or through a challenge, instead of asking for the challenge to be removed altogether? Your head is more than a hat rack.

ive only been to the base once by accident. I ramped a car off a jump and was surprised I landed in the military base. the car didn't make the jump but before I could do anything a tank comes around the corner and blows my butt up.

The Militery base is fine, I can easily cruise in and take what I want. I would even say its way to easyat the moment.

You obviously have no ideal how a military base works. WE track your every approach miles out, you wouldn't even get that close to military airspace before you get a warning. If you enter then you would get fighters to escort you out, one next to you while the other right behind you if you try something. Ignore Olympus has fallen!! Two jets would never go next to a hostile aircraft. Besides that whole scene was BS!!

 

Have you ever been to Kunsan AFB in south Korea? I have and there is missiles always pointing North just waiting to be fired. Also you better be lucky you can enter the front gate on this game. In real life there is anti vehicle barriers that activate as soon as you go pass the gate. Second there is always more than one guard. Stealing a airplane from a military is never easy as most people don't even know how they work or turn on.

 

Yes aircraft and tanks on alert are always armed!! We keep them gassed up and ready.

Ok... We have this radical device called "Radar" which lets us military types (I even hear civilians use it now!) track things in the sky. As planes and, *gasp* even helicopters, fly in fairly predictable paths, we military types can predict where they're going... and should someone bail out... predict where they will land within our nice, fenced in, little home. Given that we know all this sh*t, and we really, really, really, don't like unannounced visitors, we like having a welcoming party waiting for them when they arrive, or shortly afterwards. Like, within seconds of their arrival afterwards. I mean, if you can get close enough to parachute down onto a base that is... Which assumes that the Air Force f*cks up enough to let you get that close (They won't. Trust me).

 

Another interesting thing about "Radar", it also lets us guide things to other things in the air... Like, oh, I don't know... Rockets with explosives on one end. Now, these "Radars" can see hundreds of miles, so I am guessing that the systems used in GTA to shoot your stupid ass down are short ranged, point defense systems. They're probably infrared like the Stinger, which we have two easily rapidly deploy-able options. Either a man-portable launcher or a system mounted on a Humvee. Either way, this is probably the most realistic part of this game.

 

Forget the Navy Yard shootings, and forget what happened at Ft. Hood. The scenario you are presenting would never work. Not in the game world, and not in the real world.

But you are right... 5 tanks is unrealistic. They'd only have 4.
