Random Explosions?

Recommended Posts

RANDOMv2

So I'll be in a room by myself or with a couple of friends and we'll be flying in the buzzard doing re-supply jobs or cars or crates and out of nowhere there will be a series of explosions from the ground. Everyone would be accounted for and we would all be like, "What was that?" No one threw any explosives, no one fired a Buzzard rocket, just these weird, random explosions. It takes me by surprise every time and only started with the Import/Export update. Is anyone else experiencing this?

Yes, me and 3 of my other friends experienced this and we were alone in the session doing biker sales.

Was something with vehicles spawning in the wrong way and exploding i think.

This. I've been seeing a lot of videos of cars and peds dupicating themselves over and over recently. The cars end up causing big explosions. The people end up fighting themselves.

Yes, it is to do with vehicles spawning. When you are in the air,they tend to spawn at a height above the road. They then fall to the ground, exploding if they spawn high enough.

I should add that all of my observations are from PS4. Not sure is this is happening on other systems.

It's created by a highly paid ambience specialist, like the skinny half naked dude in Boogie Nights...

 

(best scene EVER)

Only the super-rich can afford such luxuries... Like oil rich, not stolen cars & drugs rich. Not even a mod menu can make you rich enough so just enjoy the times you get to hear it.

 

That's what I think when I hear it.

I've never seen that in all the time I've played. How did you come to this conclusion? Do you have proof?

 

Random explosions are from cars spawning on each other. If one or more of the players in session is lagging, the spawns will be delayed leading to pop-in and frame jumps.

 

Cars might pop in a few feet off the ground but never high enough to explode on impact. That's not how the game is coded and no amount of glitcheyness will cause otherwise.

I've also noticed this happening but it's been going on for a lot longer than just the import/export update. Probably been nearly a year or more since I first started to notice it happening.

Had it on xbone, every time I head to an empty lobby from playlist but that sequence of loading screens are screwed up anyway. It's a different explosion noise, one I'm not familiar with.

It often happens as well when the game has just about loaded and I'm staring at the office block simulator screen but it's more a recognisable 'grenade' type noise.

I have had it a couple of times randomly happen when flying full whack in the buzzard, about 100ft and it came from whatever bit of road I had just flew over. Thought I was being attacked but it was an empty lobby and again, it was the weird explosion noise I can't identify with anything.

This strange explosion noise seems to have a weird echo to it.

Thought it was just R* trying to install some excitement back into their creation they are slowly and painfully killing.

I'll bet a NPC driver turns for whatever reason in a gasstation. Wouldn't be suprised, tbh :)

Cars spawning on each other is the reason behind this, the mate above is saying it's been for a year but i've only heard those explosions after the biker update. what i saw is cars spawned upside down so i think it's all about the car spawning system being missed up

LS is supposed to be LA. It's a socialist utopia, what else do you expect?

I think the loading screen explosion has been around for a while. These new ones, I've only recently noticed them since around I/E but don't quote me on that... It hasn't bothered me so I've not kept any records of the when and wheres!

I thought that when you flew near the military Base you sometimes hear explosions coming from there?

It's a big city with a large population, so it's fairly likely at any given time that someone somewhere's bound to be banging

How can anyone know this without you telling us what console you were playing on...? Even then, it could just be someone in a Hunter using the Barrage missiles or something legitimate.

nice to see this old thread...

 

the other day i was in a invite only session alone, moving some cars from one garage to the other and while i was driving a couple of cars randomly exploded also all the pumps of a gas station when up in flames 😂 really weird stuff.

 

i had to double check to make sure i was alone in the session, this was on ps4 btw.

Sometimes two cars will spawn inside each other and blow up.

I have this flaw as well everytime I start my single player it is most likely cars spawning too quickly like some have mentioned. I saw it happen sometimes in Online lagging and they spray like a fountain some on fire others not. This happened in the old San Andreas I recall and is like when a cheater makes every car go to one spot killing players which was even in SAMP. I've had tables spawning inside each other when Michael is talking to his wife in the cafe too and they start going crazy, now that was scary.

Lol, I've witnessed several times duplicate vehicles spawning on top of each other, including big things like buses.  I think these sometimes go mental especially if in a tunnel at the time, and crush each other until kablammy.

I want to add that I've heard single explosions outside Michael's house like a few seconds once I've gotten back into single player mode from  being online. has happened maybe 10 times or so ever. on ps4. don't recall mystery explosions online that I can think of so far...

Has anybody heard random explosions in Story mode too? I can just be standing in Michael's house and hear an explosion from some distance away. I hear the same sounds in Online but never see an explosion. I do encounter the random vehicle spawning and screwing with traffic, they tend to be box trucks that do it a lot.

That’s a big jet crashing you can hear in story mode. Crashes at golf course from memory

I think it's when too many cars spawn at a gas station as well. Was driving past one in an invite only and it made me jump haha.
