In freeroam, when i see randoms, i drive up beside them and beep, sort of like a way of saying "hey what's up" or "hey, get in my car". It works half of the time. But lately ive been trying it with the electro but since the kers replaces the horn, everytime i show up on the electro, they just open fire. Always. That makes me wonder if horn beeping gives off some sort of friendly vibe based of this fact with the electro.

 

Discuss.

 

Edit: Im aware its called lectro. But i like calling it electro. It has a better ring to it. But thats beside the point.

If they don't start shooting or try running you over, yes. I often honk at passing cars and only use it aggressively if another player gets in my way in a mission

I still don't trust anyone. Horn or not. Sh1t, you can hand me a hot apple pie and I still won't trust you in Free Mode.

I'm scarred I tell you.

I beep my horn for what it's used for. To let people know I'm coming through.

It's all good unless they're in a chrome or clownish colored zentorno. Then it's just "dude don't you love my zenride maaaan. C'mon get in I'm awesome." I reply with explosives.

It seems to be people who are too young to drive irl are the ones that react by killing me/me griefing them (when I can hear them over the mic).

When players honk at me I'll salute them or wave then be on my way. If they continue to honk and drive along side me I assume they want me to get in so I'll do that. Funny thing though some can't drive (unless they drive crazy on purpose) and when they hit something hard they fly through the windshield.

a lot of people drive up to me while I'm afk, I can clearly see the screen as they stare at me beeping, after a short while they stick the gun up and start shooting while I get my controller and kill them.

sometimes I'm walking and they still act all nice and then start shooting.

I beep the horn and let someone in my car or whatever. I then get out my car and shotgun them while they are still in my car. Ahhh good times.

No it is Illegal to use the Horn accept in Emergency Situations.

 

I am doing my Civic duty by killing those who honk their horns at me simply to garner attention.

Horn beeping is OBNOXIOUS.

 

Especially if it's one of those half-baked musical horns.

Honking horn = Hey, shoot me in the face with your auto shotgun, please!

Lol. Yeah but for good reason. It's pretty much shoot first, ask questions later. If you wanna be friendly you better say something or send a msg before approaching me.

 

It happened to me too many times. Oh this this dude seems cool, walk over, sup man WHOOM..."you have been shotgunned by iwontgetoffmommastits". F*ck that.

GTA 4- see player. Beep horn. Race around together like idiots.

Man I wish online was laid back like 4 multiplayer.

It's a sign of friendliness full stop. If I slowly drive up next to you and beep my horn twice I'm saying hello and/or join me.

 

However since sh*ttons of idiots play GTAO beeping your horn is sometimes mistaken for "F*ck you a**hole Imma kill you".

 

When I do it I'm normally in passive to prevent retards being retards having any effect on me.

 

Edit: I don't use custom horns so my cars don't sound like clowns having an orgy.

OP, it doesn't work on motorcycles because motorcycles suck...and it's a well-known fact that most people on motorcycles are assholes

 

...also, it's LECTRO, not "electro"

(Honk). "No, I don't want to hang out." (honk..... honkhonkhonkhonkhonkhonkhonkhonkhonkhonkhonkhonkhonkhonkhonk.) It's at this point that I wreck the other car w/o a second thought.

I'm glad someone else noticed how different gta4 and this gta online are. It's mostly this new generation of kids playing that do this bs. No one acts civil anymore.
