Tank != bad

Recommended Posts

For the last couple of days I've been cruising around LS in my tank. I don't kill anyone, I just drive it around and watch people.

 

Some people instantly run away, probably the smartest move.

 

Others cautiously approach, when they realize I'm not shooting them they either go about as normal or try to steal my tank, which never happens.

 

For the first time yesterday someone actually called in their tank and came up to me, instead of shooting each other he invited me to an impromptu race. We had a tank race to the golf club.

 

Then there are the stupid people. they instantly pull out a sticky or RPG and try to kill me which in turn leads me to kill them. I answer violence with violence.

every player thinks a person in a tank is some greifer. just shoot them and move on. if they keep attacking, spawn kill until they leave

Well, no offence but a lot of tank users aren't exactly the most gentle people in GTA:O. I mostly try and stay away from tank users, but sometimes it is fun to try and get as close as possible to an angry tank user trying to kill me.

 

 

Unlike most people though I have never actually destroyed a tank on my own, I never get the chance to get out of my car and plant 5 sticky bombs on them :(

Next time when people try to kill you with a rpg,drive beside them and let them blow themselves up.I did it once using a stolen tank.

grenade launcher from a roof works a lot better.

OP, try catching players as they leave shops/the hairdressers. You'll be in a stronger position and they'll likely play ball.

You still take damage from that. Just best to blow them up and drive away.

 

Also inb4 someone who thinks they're clever and uses the "twanker" term.

 

EDIT: Too late, oh well.

i'm having the most fun i've ever had with a tank right now tbh

 

someone put a bounty on me, now i'm just joining random servers and seducing a bunch of desperate, amateur bounty hunters to chase me

 

to make things even funner, some other loser tried chasing my tank with his all the way across the map, while others kept stealing cars to catch up to me, only to get blown up again

 

i collected a few bounties doing this too, since they pissed off some NPCs :beerhat:

 

see, there's better things to do with a tank than spawnkill

Aggressive tank drivers that don't know what they're doing are the best, the ones that just try and chase every down without caring about damage they take.

If you are in a tank, you obviously don't wanna be nice...

 

Well I do.

 

Tanks have feelings too. #oppreseed.

Cruising around Mors Depot in a tank is my new hobby in GTA O but most the time I just roll around minding my own business. If I'm in a lobby full of pricks, I'll head for other players and have me some fun.

You troll people in a tank and revel in their misery, but THEY'RE the losers?

I enjoy the insane challenge of fighting somebody in a tank even if I'm gonna die a handful of times. But as everybody pretty much agrees at this point, it'd be cool if more twankers were less asshole-ish.

Best thing I have ever done in a tank was when I had a bounty on my head. I had the guy chase me to my tank. Then as soon as he caught up with me I came around the corner and blasted him LOL.

Some crunt in a tank blew up my free Elegy and I had to pay over 5k for insurance.

I usually call for my tank, find the lowest ranked player in the lobby, beep at him, then let him take my tank on a killing spree.

 

So funny seeing them mess up high ranked fools like myself.

$5,000?! Last time I had to pay insurance for my Elegy it only cost me a little over $1,000.

That tank race was the best thing I've read about a tank on the forum (apart from the white knights that go destroy a mean tank with their own tank). There needs to be more awesome tank drivers that aren't dicks. The tank is a "little sh*t" attraction as you know someone who is in a tank has a 80% of being a prick. I wonder what tank drivers would be like if there was no tank in GTA, what vehicle they would go for. It's whole reputation is ruined by now. I don't have one and never plan to get one due to how it's seen by others. Even if I met a friendly tank, just being around it would be like the whitest guy walking in Compton blasting Vanilla Ice in his car.

I believe what I see. In 16+ days of gameplay I'm yet to see a friendly tank user.

 

If I happen to be in a good position (in a buzzard with two people, in a jet...) I'll destroy the tank. If not I'll stay away.

Modnation, as ever here to contribute something useful. Such. A. Tool.

 

On topic, I didn't even know you could impromptu race tanks! Definitely up for trying that out!

The being nice in tanks bit, yeah sorry OP, I'm less inclined to follow suit there haha

Complains about never seeing friendly tank users, blast tanks with jet or Buzzard, wonders why tanks are not friendly.

 

Ok then....

Stop tainting my avatar with your spam

 

OT: I only run people over while in a tank. I come out of nowhere blasting the horn... Pretty hilarious. But if I see you pull out stickys (which is usually the case) I'll blast you to hell.

If you're chasing a tank half way across the map, getting killed in the process time and time again, and keep at it like a retarded puppy, then yes, they are.

 

Had it happen to me too and it's a strange and hilarious phenomenon.
