So yall would hate to see me. 30 K/D in a jet. I could kill everyone on the ground but I dont feel like fighting double teams and RPG spammers, and Kuruma guys. If you want to kill me take me out in a jet or waste homing launchers, maybe by the 1000th launch youll get me lol.

K/D Ratio (n): Pointless stat featured in Grand Theft Auto: Online.

 

RPG spammers... :lol: Says the one who's in a jet with unlimited missiles and explosive cannon rounds.

 

Dude, by the time you've got into your Hydra at Vespucci Heliport, I've already sniped you.

Yes RPG and Miniguns are annoying. But the jet cannons are literally a combination of Minigun rate of fire and explosives. Now, add that to passive mode and being in a flying ultra-rapid and maneuverable machine that can dodge missiles and is impervious to a lot of ground threats.

 

I'll let you do the maths.

 

It's not impervious to any ground threat.

Any weapon can damage a jet, especially when it flies close enough to use it's cannons.

 

Well, I did say "A lot" and not all. I mean, yes you can technically take down a jet with a molotov cocktail or a musket, but you can also technically kill a lion with a sponge.

 

As a ground unit, your only way out really is the holy Heavy Sniper. But a sniper rifle is a poor match against a 900 RPM explosive cannon.

I love when people use the heavy sniper against me it poses a challenge. I try not to bully low levels though sometimes when 5 of em get in a truck I have to blow them up once.

 

The midsection of the Mile High Construction site is perfect for countering jets.

Granted you have to fly there, but there are plenty of spots to poke out & fire from any direction.

The netting around that whole level also somehow protects you even from jet cannons.

Love that spot. I've made so many wannabe top guns crash doing that.

Here allow me to translate..

 

"Im a pussy"

 

There see not so hard now was it.BTW you're DM record is laughable stick to the jet you need it lol

 

 

That was from the day I started on the Forums. I'm now level 507 and win almost every time. Its hard though when you get all the noobs on your team and the high levels on the other. I always set to owned plus pickups so your teammates not being able to counter snipe or counter RPG.

 

@CarcerCity I hate the hydra I prefer the Lazer lol. I would snipe you first if you were camping it. I can do foot almost as well as jets lol.

 

@Poopman I got a double roadkill on some guys under a bridge yesterday. It was the most skillful thing I have ever done.

They say it is a P**** tactic, while they are on the ground spamming RPG's and Mini-Guns? Is that more manly and legit?

 

Well, I hate jets because they disrupt the activities I'm doing at the time. Nothing more; nothing less. I see them mostly as a distraction.

It's actually a practical military application for close quarters air to air combat.

All you'd need is just a few rounds from an explosive to cripple or even destroy an aircraft.

Non-explosive variants can still do it, however they come nowhere close to guaranteeing such results unless you hit something critical.

I meant the developers at R, surely they knew unlimited rapid explosive bullets in a flying killing machine is a bit much.

That's why it's range is limited in-game.

Had it's range been made realistic, it would be a nightmare & a nerf on it would've been immediate.

My bad, missed the "a lot" part.

& true, guess a knife or hatchet can't take down a jet. lol

it sure takes a lot of skill to kill someone while hiding in a Lazer/Hydra when you only need to hit within 15 feet of the player with the explosive cannon to kill them...... (sarcasm)

 

 

I don't think it is that players hate the jets, just the players that use them and then instantly run into passive mode and bail from the jet on the first sign of damage and instantly call in a replacement Hydra and resume the jet griefing.

The reason some people hate jets, is because they're a little overpowered. That's all.

 

This is great when you use it for good purposes - taking down large crews, cyber bullies, trash talkers, etc. More often it's used for dark purposes though.

 

Also, not everyone on the ground just spams RPGs and miniguns. A lot of ground players look down on those that do as much as they look down on excessive jet - use.

Yes, in all these threads, put the hate where it properly belongs - on Rockstar's GTA0 game design, with multiple severe imbalances that generally preclude a fair fight. Rockstar panders to the griefers.

I like hiding in the tunnel beneath Mt. Zonah Medical Center. Never met a jet pilot who could do a successful strafing run and pull up sharp enough to avoid crashing into the building. Then there was the time I closed a Ponsonbys and was waiting for bounty hunters. A jet pilot couldn't get me, and texted me to stop hiding.

My125k player kills and my 5000+ DM wins would disagree with you.I also highly doubt you would hold a 30 kd on foot vs me lol.Anyway whatever you wanna play in a jet what do i care,if thats what it takes for you to try to be equal to good players who am i to say right

I don't see why this makes you feel special. Plenty of people can get loads of kills in jets.

 

If that 30 K/D is separated from your on foot K/D, then it's actually pretty low. If I separated my K/D in jets from my K/D on foot or in other less overpowered vehicles, it would literally be in the thousands at least. It's not that hard to rack up a huge amount of kills without dying in a jet.

 

If you eventually come to realise that flying a jet isn't some superhuman ability that only you have, I'd recommend flying helicopters as a more challenging and fair vehicle. A helicopter can give you the edge while outnumbered, yet still give you a challenge. A little too much of one if your enemies know what they're doing, but eventually jets get a bit boring in my opinion. I bring out jets when I'm massively outnumbered (a whole session is after me, etc.).

I don't have a problem with people in jet. What piss me off is jet griefer who are abusing the passive mode system. It's a system for people who don't want to get involve not a freaking shield every 1 min. Sometime there is a guy in a jet you get in a jet and have a cool legit dogfight, but sometime you go across these little cowards. They go in passive until they are behind you, switch out of passive destroy you.

One of the main problems with the jet is the accessibility. Basically since the Hydra it has been a right royal pain in the arse.

 

The other main problem is the cannon is just too effective.

 

Usually I can avoid a jet, and if I can't just go passive.

 

However, I was doing some VIP work the other night, got attacked by a jet, but got a lucky shot with the heavy sniper and took out the pilot and completed the mission I was on 30 seconds later.

All good and well..

Until the same player in another Hydra shows up a minute later whilst I am on Vespucci beach, get's me on first pass. Then repeatedly spawn kills me on the beach. I can't go passive, because of VIP, I can't quit VIP because of 12 hour cool down, and I can't even change server because I can't stay in the menu long enough to select the option before I get killed again. This happened about 10 times in the space of a couple of minutes before the game finally took pity on me and spawned me under the pier.

@Stoned pimpso not complaining just asking why it is considered more "Skilled"

 

I hold a solid 4+ when I roll solo against crews of players and never easy way out or spam RPG. I'm more than competent on foot jets are just more fun.
