Homing Launcher

This tool of destruction needs to be level locked. It's annoying as f*ck to be shot down by a level 20 using the launcher. Rockstar, please level lock this to 125-150.

No it doesn't.

 

If it's level locked at 125-150 then you should only be able to use a jet or helicopter with weapons at that same level.

I'm above those levels so let that happen.

What about if they lock it to level 200 so you can't use it? You'll be bitching about it.

It's just annoying to fly by in a savage to go pick up my friends just to be shot down

^ it might not happen, but I see a Nerf coming its way in the near future.

Need a cooldown instead. Level lock so far into the game doesn't mean sh*t. Way more people over 120+ than lower than that. Plus, you shouldn't be annoyed at what level shot you down, you should be annoyed that it can be spammed. What if a level 400 shoots you down? "Oh, he's a really high level, please kill me again!"

f*ck logic.

In one of my threads I proposed a change for the Savage to increase its armour and a few other changes alongside it.

 

Savage needs a serious armour buff

They have already, slowed velocity and made It take longer to reload.

It needs a damn good nerfing, it was brought in to balance out aircraft such as the lazer, but all it does is completely negate the use of anything airborne. Seriously, if you defend it, you're probably an asshole that abuses it.. I dare you to try showing off your brand new hydra without someone pulling the damn launcher out immediately, even if you don't plan on attacking anyone. It's stupid.

...and what a fat lot of good that did. It needs some serious re-balancing. IMHO it shouldn't be able to lock onto helicopters...even those with weapons are basically worthless for griefing anyway since they move comparatively slowly and are highly susceptible to small arms fire...

I think the best way to nerf the Launcher is to make the missile accuracy similar to the missiles on Lazers, Buzzards etc.

 

What I mean is that if the missile misses its target it will not continue to follow the target it. Right now if the homing launcher missile misses its target, the missile does an insane 180 degree turn and hits the enemy.

 

Hope this suggestion gets rectified .-.

Nope, I just use it against those in a Buzzard attacking me for no reason.

I quite enjoy being targed by an idiot rank 28 when in a helicopter because there's literally nothing else they can do to me.

"Being targeting" nice job, Dorien.

It's so f*cking lame, countless times have I dodged the missile itself only for it to hover in midair, and correct itself. It's not possible to dodge once it's in the air. There isn't even a way to counteract it, you can't have someone kill the dude before you move in cause then he'll respawn a block away and get you instantaneously with the 2 second lock on time. It annoys me how it even has more range than the aircraft weapons themselves..

Rockstar doesn't take these forums into consideration. Use the proper channels.

It is pretty annoying. I only get mine out to aim at Lazers and watch them fly away in fear. I've rarely shot it at other players unless the heli/plane had several people inside. I mainly use it against the damn AI in missions.

It turns the savage and Valkyrie into flying coffins, one hit and we're done and it's damn near impossible to avoid it due to how slow these two helicopters move, especially the savage. At least let the savage and Valkyrie be able to take one or two hits and still work fine.

Flares! Flares! FLARES!

 

Its the right thing to give helicopters at least, jets can already dodge them fairly easily. Theres almost nothing you can do against the homing missiles in helicopters, whice is completely unfair. If you had flares with say a 20-30 second cool down in between each flare use it would give helo pilots a chance to survive longer than 2 minutes without getting blown out of the sky by some skilless weapon. It would also give the one being attacked time to get away and repostion if need be.

 

 

But not to worry, there's a little hope still left. Heres a tip from a fellow GTA pilot H8mEx. He calls it "flaring." This tactic works very well with The Valkyrie, so go buy yourself one. Now stay in third person with interaction menu open while you're hovering over the option to enable passive and let your co-pilots ran death in freeroam. When a missile is inbound go passive (Flaring). Works almost like a flare. Valkyrie is the new top helo imho with this method. We were like 90% effective in causing chaos with little worry over the homing launcher. One more tip too, make sure you're flying to the sound of Creedence Clearwater Revival - Fortunate Son.

All u people crying about the homing missile are either grifers or horrible at flying. The savage and buzzard ok but it's easy as hell to evade missiles in jets.

Don't you have miniguns on both sides and high explosive rounds? What is this bitching about?

What good is having miniguns if you get blew out of the sky by some skilless missile that is nearly impossible to evade IN HELICOPTERS?
