To Those Who Kill In Freemode

Recommended Posts

Zone-Tan

Not a whine, read before you rant.

 

There's no benefits to killing in Freemode, even for trolls. There's usually only negative effects to the player who was killed, and actually, negative effects to the killer.

 

Killer effects

Max xp you gain per kill: 100 (I don't even know the minimum because I haven't killed in Freemode, see no reason to)

Sure, maybe this is how you rob a person, I don't see you getting 10k, and even if you use this tactic to farm for cash, your skills stay ultimately sh*tty.

Wasted ammo

Chance to waste extra ammo

Chance to damage or total person vehicle

 

Victim effects:

Pay Hospital bill

 

 

 

There's no scoreboard so you can gloat, either. So I seriously don't see the point in it. It seems entirely more logical to go back to GTA4 and kill people in Freeroam than here. And no, I've actually never been killed in free roam, shot, yes, but I've never paid any Hospital Bills.

For what it's worth, I kill people sometimes Online (not always, if I'm zooming by fast or if I don't feel like stopping for it), but if I randomly encounter another player by surprise, I'll absolutely shoot because as a long-time Day Z player, I've learned to never trust randoms. Ever.

 

Source: Yesterday before my character got deleted a random came out of the strip club. I did not shoot, walked away. He shot me.

kill or be killed usually, yea?

 

I try to let people be unless I see a robbery in progress, then its fun to stalk the store until they come out and start blasting away..

 

or if you shoot at me first

I do, and I can bet money there are 10's of thousands of others that do.

But again, it isn't a whine, I was legitimately asking what you gain out of it, because I don't see what you do.

Just start killing nearby randoms as well, OP.

lol, Day Z will definitely teach you the ropes. I'm paranoid as hell in this game. I shoot first and ask questions later if I don't know you.

It takes a griefer to kill too many times in free more. 2-3 times is and should be ok, but no more.

 

I, personally, don`t like to shoot unprovoked, but that`s why we have invite only games :) .

9/10 times when someone sees you it's you or them, I'm not a fan of killing at random but I do what's necessary

Same. Deathmatchers make me angry honestly. It shouldn't as a game about killing, but why does it need to be a game about killing passive unarmed randoms in non-deathmatch mode to some people?

I don't care that much but it can be annoying at times. Example -

 

  • Dude slams into me and knocks me off my bike
  • My crewmate and I chase him down
  • Sawed-off shotgun his sh*t
  • His car blows up
  • omg ur a bad sport
  • Seems f*ckin legit

I remember a day after GTA Offline was released when I got into a deathmatch, there were people getting legitimately very angry because they were getting shot.

 

Why do people play videogames to get angry? I don't f*cking know man.

I don't really see the problem with killing people in free mode. If people really didn't want to be killed, I'm sure they'd use one of the many options available to avoid it.

 

There's no big downside to doing it, and no real benefit to it either. But the same could be said for the opposite.

The ability to kill other people is just a part of the game and one of the main forms of interaction you can have with other players in free roam mode, choosing to avoid it at all costs is what makes no sense to me.

I'm kind of irritated by the amount of people randomly killing in free roam in this forum. I'm with the OP, it kind of destroys the fun. For me it drives me into solo sessions or playing with a crew.

When I free roam I either mind my own business or assist people when they are in trouble. Thats what makes the fun for me.

I think its the best fun driving by a random player who just held up a store and helping ihm the f*ck out of there.

Everytime someone randomly goes nuts in free roam killing people I think of some 12 year old sh*t heads trying to compensate sth...

f*ck man, I swear, it's like you guys have never played a grand theft auto game before. It's not a game where we go around hugging each other. It's a big assed free roam environment for causing havoc in it.

 

Deal with it.

Because, who doesn't like a good old crew vs crew shoot out, with random police/ other people joining in too?

 

Our crew shoot each other and jump out of cars in mid air from ramps, because we find it fun.

I was playing in free roam, taking my new car to the mod shop to color it (Fecking purple costs 12k!) and some person in a SUV rams me as I am getting into my car. I'm... in the car on my screen... but after they ram me... I'm under their tire. So, quit game, no cloud save, not dead. \o/

The question was about a random shooting, mostly incidents where a person from a store is shot out of no where, rammed, then shot, etc. Just completely random, uncalled for, out of nowhere.

You mentioned the killer earning both experience points and cash.
