The Ruiner 2000 is impossible to defeat. Discuss.

Rhino has zero chance. Just like a chopper.

Oh I don't know. Can be done.

Not that the tank's not quite weak and vulnerable (post-nerf anyway), but yeah.

Learn how to fly a damn Jet or get a Rhino+Off the radar.

 

I can't fly a jet. I'm jetslexic.

 

Already tried Rhino + off radar.

 

I don't know if anyone answered this already, but I'm pretty sure the mission version can't be locked on to, either. I was not able to lock on when targeting with my buzzard. Unless I had it toggled to "off" or something every time which I doubt.

I've never been killed by one. Just park on a roof and wait for their timer to run out. Then they become your bitch again.

 

Well I know that NOW...

 

I like your method better than spending $5m.

No it can't be locked onto, I'm 90% sure.

 

Probably the most effective way is just wait for their few minutes to be up, or take them out on foot, then get back in your vehicle.

Or take them out on foot, and steal their Ruiner. Happened to me once.

Just shoot the driver. I don't understand the issue. I've had plenty of people kill me while driving my Ruiner 2000.

During fully loaded I avoid players on foot and focus on low hanging fruit.

I avoid other players on foot anytime I am driving anything. In autoaim cars are deathtraps lol.

 

 

Let me introduce you to my armored Baller.

 

Immune to pedestrian gunfire and even can withstand a full-on RPG hit, homing or regular.

 

But if you already broke the driver side window to sticky bomb somebody, then of course a pedestrian on your left side can get you easily.

Exactly. Play smart in this vehicle and you can rack up the kills.

If you can't beat it - just go high out of reach or land for 20 minutes, have a wank or something, make a few witty helicopter posts on here.

 

Come back, spawnkill. You'll have an hour before they can even begin to get another.

 

One thing I'd find really funny (still have to come across one of them to try it), is to shoot the person out on foot, then get in a 'Bob and hold it over their head, just out of reach. Really want to try that lol.

It cant be hooked, not when I tried.

Nah I have personal reasons why I wont own an armored vehicle in game.

A player on foot easily shut downs the Ruiner.

 

Sometimes heavy arsenal isn't the best choice.

funny enough , this thread said it didn't became new griefer's toy http://gtaforums.com/topic/877042-the-ruiner-2000-didnt-became-the-new-grieffers-toy/

the truth IS.....any armed vehicle can be turned deadly if the driver/pilot is mastered them ( except gunner vehicles , which additionally requires passenger )

 

but from what i see , being a muscle car R2K can be difficult to be driven during raining .try by going on-foot and then face off the driver with auto-aim ?

oh yeah while R2K capable of jumping , its not always effective aganist someone who was camping on roof ( that is if the missile does lock on-foot target )

 

to divert the lock-on , simply crowd yourself with lots of cops as they might hit wrong target , unless you're very close to one of squad car which will result chain-reaction......oh and the R2K must be wanted by police ( or an enemy NPC turns hostile to him )

I only rarely go after players on foot in the ruiner. If I can setup a ghost org attack where I drop off a rooftop and spam missles into him as I'm dropping off the roof ill do it. But that takes time to setup and ill only waste that time on someone highly annoying. Usually I'm happy to shutdown the lobby and have them wait out the 20 minutes on foot.

It got no bulletproof window, try using jet or go on foot with it, just shoot if you have AA or minigun if you are free aim player.

I've only used the ruiner 2000 in its mission, but never or gonna waste millions on a mediocre non OP car.

 

I never play with others, but I recon it would still not have the edge against the AI

The only time I've been killed whilst using the Securoserve Ruiner (during 'Fully Loaded') is when I've been shot out of the car (I now try to avoid all players on foot). I have yet to be killed by anyone in a jet, buzzard, tank or a PV Ruiner.

 

There's a new a Sheriff town.

Starts "I can't lock onto it"

 

Everything after that is pointless, because you can lock onto it. Check your targetting settings.

 

You can still lock onto a R2K doing Fully Loaded, right?

i still have to meet any vip mission ruiner tbh

 

except for one that is, but his rockets failed to shoot my jet down and he was hiding somewhere.

 

at that moment i still did not knew about the insane armor on that thing, but i got him after 10 straffes, which were not all hits.

 

Really, though i think the vip ruiner is overpowered, i still do not think that any decent skilled jet pilot can be killed by it, but then again, my experience with those ruiners is limited

Best way is to shoot the driver.

 

Also, did you even think of placing a $1000 bounty on the player in the Ruiner 2000? If they have a bounty, you will lock on to any vehicle if they are in it hence making it a little bit easier :p

Jumping also avoid pretty much all splash damage from the Hydras cannons.

You can defeat a Ruiner2000 by going on-foot and use rocket launcher or homing launcher.

Ruiner2k doesn't lock on players on foot, only on players in vehicles.

You know I was kind of expecting a bunch of trolling "lol noob"

 

 

LOL, Noob, GTFO. :colgate: (there you go).

 

Normal Ruiner2000 - Completely destructible and lock-onable.( that's a word right?)

 

VIP Ruiner2000 - RUN! RUN LIKE THE WIND! :lol:

 

As a few posts have mentioned, the biggest weakness is no bulletproof glass so the driver is vulnerable to gunfire and a good Sniper can force you to destroy your own FL Ruiner for a replacement. (FYI, it took me 4 Sticky Bombs and 3 RPG's to destroy a spawn-trapped Ruiner).

 

If Fully Loaded is running, get out of all vehicles and stay out until it ends or you will die. :lol:

 

Biggest problem I face is not being able to flip the car over quickly enough if it goes upside down, not sure if it's part of the design but it's very annoying. The Ruiner becomes a sitting duck for a good few seconds but beware of indiscriminate 'Panic-Fire'..

Ikr, but I always have to laugh when people surrounding me grap their rocket launcher and start spitting rockets :) It could easily survive six or seven.

But yeah, a lobby full of infantry with guns is the worst nightmare. Still, I got really good in ducking in the car while wearing a bullet proof helmet, works good in I/E missions as well.

Hi everybody. I'm a Rank 445 with a KDR of 6.7, and no one is better than me at flying a buzzard, but I can't fly a jet for sh*t.

 

I am also expert at stickybombing people from a moving vehicle (see my screen name).

 

1. KDR is for kids and noobs. noone cares and it means NOTHING.

2. yes there are thousands of better buzzard pilots than you

3. stickybomb expert? no proof there and killing people with sticky bombs is one of the easiest way to kill

4. are you on console? if yes. LOL! to you

5. you are a big f*ckin joke.

It's pretty much sh*t honestly, I never even see anyone use it and the last time I did the guy kept getting killed out of the windows. The only time I've gotten kills with it was when I had distance from someone and used the rockets, otherwise people just toss stickies all over you and boom ded.
