Karin Technical Changes


J-Rawk---
 Share

Recommended Posts

Here are a few reasonable ideas (and a few less reasonable ideas) that could take the Karin Technical from a do-not-buy to a must-have.

 

Reasonable:

 

  1. Make it a garage vehicle -> options for paint jobs, BULLET PROOF TIRES!, turbo and the ability to call it to your location through the mechanic
  2. Remove the "military vehicle" blip from the minimap -> a technical is supposed to be a quick-and-dirty, hit-and-run type of vehicle. It is meant to take enemies by surprise. How can it do that when your average player is gearing up for battle with an "Insurgent Pickup" when they see your blip?

 

Less Reasonable

 

  1. Have upgrade options for the gun -> a couple of sizes of metal plating attached to the gun to protect the gunner.
  2. Have upgrade options for the weapon?!
  • Anti-Air -> a double barreled explosive round gun that can shoot up to 80 degrees but doesn't shoot below 15 degrees so that it would be difficult (but not impossible) to use against ground targets.
  • Recoiless Rifle/Anti-tank -> basically a slower loading tank gun on the back of a pickup

 

At $950, 000 there is almost no good reason not to save your money for an Insurgent Pickup over the Karin Technical. With one or two of these changes, I think the Technical could become worth that money.

 

 

What do you think?

 

 

Oh, and please don't say "Just don't buy it." I didn't buy it, and I probably won't. Unless of course some of these changes are made....

You are right and I don't know what R* was thinking with that price tag and lack of bullet proof tires. They want us to spend our money, so this is quite surprising.

For $950,000, the Karin Technical should already have every non-cosmetic upgrade available for the Rebel including bulletproof tires.

People are gonna whine about it being not being visible on the map... We all know what happened to our Trolltank & -lazer

I totally approve of your idea OP... This Pegasus purchase is the third biggest disappointment ever.

 

1st: The Dump truck being destroyed by one explosive. (Had I known this, I would've never wasted my money.)

 

2nd: The Valkyrie helicopter able to take multiple rocket impacts in mission mode, but gets destroyed by one rocket in online mode. (The only reason I purchased it was because I thought it would be heavily armored.)

 

3rd: not being able to store the Karin Technical in a garage. (I thought we'd be able to store it, since we can't, I want my money back.)

 

MILLIONS OF $$$ WASTED.... Me & R* are about to no longer be simpatico!

 

EDIT: $4,800,000 lost, to be exact... SMH

Bulletproof tires and Personal Vehicle status are absolutely necessary if I'm ever gonna pay for this thing.

I like the technical and bought it. Feel like in Madmax, dont need any changes, maybe some rusty mods like the cheaper rebel.

Should be a PV for paint jobs and bp tires. I hate that my technical is white.

It seems most commenters agree. So that does it! Rockstar should be implementing my suggested changes any minute now.

 

 

 

.....yep, any minute now...

When I first heard about it.. I figured you'd bring in a Rebel and get the gun modification from the Chop Shop. Figured the gun mod would be 150k or below.

Yup, I'd buy this if it was a garage vehicle.

 

But until then, nope. And I regret getting the Savage, because 4 sniper shots can drop it.

Can't be PV, simply because it has a weapon and when players retaliate by blowing this piece of sh*t up, its not right to get a bad sport and pay insurance.

 

Cars a joke.

 

Have too much sense to buy it, it's just going to become an extra vehicle to scroll through on my already massive pegasus list.

As much as it annoys me that I can't custom paint my pegasus vehicles It's pretty unlikely that rockstar will give us any kind of armed customizable personal vehicle. To much potential to be OP.

If you can't save up a mil in this game that you would consider disposable income (for example buying a pegasus vehicle before knowing all the facts about it and not caring) you're doing it wrong.

I'm not saying it needs to be a PV, but they really should have given us a color option and given it BP tires.

Mr. Crowley

I'd be happy with just bulletproof tires.

Just increase the rate of fire and make it have bullet proof tires

I approve of the reasonable changes, but not the weapon upgrades. Unless they were outrageously expensive. The turret is strong enough as it is, so there is really no need for anti-air and whatnot.

Love your ideas OP. The format of this thread is similar to mine, but my one is about the Savage.

The Savage seriously needs better armor.

It could be so great if just that were done.

Actualy not only the savage

In my opinions all choppers shoud be able to survive one explosive hit..thats it

The savage shoud be able to survive 2 hits and have a bullet proof cockpit though...and a buff on the speed in a straight line... seriously...it shoud be considering its armor, weight and power be the adder of the heli's

i feel i just needs the bulletproof tires, maybe some armour.

This and a price drop and then it's reasonable. Until that happens i will never give this vehicle a second thought.

All it needs is bulletproof tires, windows and 2 rpg shots tolerance.
