Have you ever been spawn killed by the game?

Last night I stole a Lazer from the military base.

 

I am not a very good pilot but I managed to evade the missiles by flying straight upwards.

 

Little did I know that the game had sent a game controlled NPC Lazer after me, so as I approached the airfield by the lake I heard the beeping sound of an incoming missile and I blew up.

 

I then spawned and saw the Lazer circling me at a very slow speed. It then fired another missile at me and killed me.

 

It did this 5 times, each time I tried to run away but it got me.

 

On the sixth time I heard an explosion as I re-spawned and the Lazer was gone.

 

There was no player dot on the map at anytime during this so even if someone was off the radar the time between me leaving the military base and my last death was longer than the time allowed. Also, you can't target lock players on foot with Lazer missiles I don't think.

 

Has anyone else had an experience of the game being a douche to them in online Free Roam mode?

 

I must stress that the GAME was controlling the Lazer NOT a player!

Getting killed by AI Lazers when on the ground is the most terrifying sensation one can have in the game, unlike most jet griefers the f*cking AI just shoots a short millisecond burst of explosive rounds to kill you, you see it coming, slowly banking left/right, ever so slowly coming right at you, you have this sort of cautious optimism that it will just fly off and then just like that you see your life flash before your eyes as the incoming explosive rounds shred your body to pieces.

Yeah...... team deathmatch was the type of deathmatch. It even showed us all on teams on the character screen.

 

But it started and....... everyone is a red dot? Oh no...... BAM BAM BAM BAM each time I died I respawned by my "team" and got killed again. Couldn't pull up my phone or Start fast enough so I turned off the Xbox

I spawn kill myself from time to time just to show myself who's boss. Sometimes my car will spawn somewhere awkward and I'll jump to it commiting suicide over and over instead of walking like a civilised well adjusted character

How did you manage to spell dunno and somewhere wrong??

 

And a Pegasus vehicle would get you somewhere faster.

 

My bad,was on mobile and I have big ass thumbs :p

 

Not everyone owns a Pegasus vehicle,what if OP pressed on the wrong Pegasus vehicle by accident?

i had a similar thing happen to me. after i was shot down the same npc jet griefed me several times and kept blowing me up with rockets it didn't stop until i restarted the session. My crew just stood there watching me get blown up seemingly out of nowhere. It was funny for a while but soon became tedious.

When a NPC lazer is chasing you it's not like the cops, it doesn't want your stars, it wants your dignity.

 

Now look at you.

I'm glad its not just me this happened to, it seems the game has the potential to pull a few surprises on us even almost two years after we started playing.

I've had the jet follow me into the city and keep killing me near eclipse towers and people would get close to me and the jet would kill them too, it was hilarious hearing people's reactions, that pilot is on some serious kind of focus pill, swoops down and shoots the cannon once or twice and your dead, nothing you can do at all haha.

Yup; hasn't happened to me, but did happen to Xpertthief quite a while back during one of his videos...in his case, he was killed three times by the NPC Lazer (IIRC).

 

Pretty much hunted him down, too. Can't remember if he finally took it out with a mini-gun or sniped the NPC pilot (which he has done in the past).

 

Just another of R*'s tacky ways to vent their epic anti-cheat fail on their gaming community.

 

The random lady, or horde of Ballers near the gas station that suddenly spawn out of nowhere and start shooting at you when you're busy holding up the store is another.

It took itself out by crashing into two palm trees.

Never took that ride into LSC, I wonder how much that one was worth...

 

It did have a thumping sound system.

This description reminds me of the Tornado attack choppers from Saints Row 2, which would appear and fire one-hit-kill homing missiles at you immediately after firing a quick burst from the chin turret. As soon as you heard that cannon fire or saw the chopper stabilize itself and look at you, you knew you had only seconds to live if you didn't find cover, and it was one of the most terrifying experiences I've had in an open world game.

 

Haven't been chased by a jet like this in GTAO yet, but since I usually fire off quick cannon bursts and often go off the radar using the jet in free roam, perhaps this gives me an idea of what the people on the ground are experiencing.

Yes this happened to me on a few occasions. It is kinda weird cuz you will hear the jet flying around but I cant always spot them right away then bam your dead lol They are not too smart though and a few sniper shots will usually send them on their way.

Had Spawn Location on Random, I spawned on the mountain north of Fort Zancudo, a jet kept spawn killing me over and over and over to the point where I just stopped playing for a few hours. I didn't even have stars, just a random NPC jet. Invite only session.
