The automatic Orbital Shoot you can fix a jet flying at top of the map. On the Orbital you van see all San Andreas state.

So now we gotta pay even more attention to the map before we auto target someone. To make sure they're not in a MOC or Avenger. Because they broke that too. Now you can auto target that. But you'll throw away 750k and gain nothing but a cooldown.

 

And when you pick a target make sure you actually get that target. Because if that target is lost during the loading screen you'll target someone else.

 

Best broken game ever. Right?

Surviving a Orbital Cannon with a Fully Loaded Turreted limo, minute 5:45

 

 

And, if you fly high, you can be fixed with the automatic, but for example, not with the manual (since there is no possibility of doing so much back zoom)

The helicopter pad at the hosptial protects you. I even manually tried to shoot drive way. To see if the blast radius would would reach the target. It didnt. There is also a substation under maze bank west. Its safe as well.

Finally got hit with this last night while I was in a jet lol

Cant really even get mad about it.

If I pissed off someone enough to spend 750K for 1 kill on me I consider that a W haha.

The orbital cannon in the long run will really just be a "pay to boost k/d" feature.

That's literally the only productive (some form of gain) use of it, after using the free Christmas shot to collect a bounty or something.

Too bad k/d has very little credibility in this game anyway, however the OC would inevitably lower it's credibility even if it was in fact good.

I'm guessing that after 2 or so months, either people got bored or the modded accounts ran out of money, because I haven't been hit in weeks.

Most of the frivolous strikes have ran dry i guess, just the butthurt ones left for special occasions

Plenty of strikes in Bad Sport here.

A few people even fell for the Avenger bait more than once.

Completely braindead, they must be.

I have been hopping between different lobbies used a lot of orbital cannon in the last few days after I bought it and have noticed something interesting.


About 1/4 of the targets I shot managed to avoid it in some way.


I can shoot them straight again until they leave or I leave because you always get a refund if it misses.


But when thinking about... Who want's to pvp in this game when a chance is 1/4 of the people you might face even manage to survive from orbital strike.


Cheater problem seems real on PC.

^ "cheater problem seems real on PC"

 

Said by a guy who jumps from lobby to lobby just to waste over 500k on random people cause he has infinite amount of money...

 

 

Oh the irony.

But it's not cheating.


And I use the 750K one. At least I get a refund when I hit a cheater.

I don't think it was the fact of changing sessions when cheating was mentioned. More the fact of where the cash came from to allow so many uses. All hard earned was it? I'm sure it was all legitimate.

Of course it's all legit cash. You can check my Social Club and Steam if you don't believe. Both are visible on my profile.

So you are implying that you are willingly westing weeks of your life on grinding(/buying SC) just so you can spend that in couple seconds on some cheap kills and by pressing a button and jumping from lobby to lobby?

 

Sure thing buddy, sounds legit (and soooooo fun /s).

 

I don't know why you feel the need to lie to random strangers on the internet but ok...

It's something to do while waiting for better updates.
Doomsday update was interesting enough and I bought the facility and orbital cannon.
But I already got a bit bored of it because cooldown between each orbital strike is 48 mins, lol.

yes , but how will you know when its coming ? you cant spend all the time in race/job lobbys , appartments

 

By using logic, clues and building a habit of constantly checking the entire map.

 

You see a red (mentally unstable) player that was doing nothing but griefing the lobby is now entering a Facility?

That's the clue.

 

A player had PvP with you, went to passive mode and then he is trying to reach his Facility?

That's the clue.

 

Remember about 40 min cooldown. Honestly, being killed once a day by this thing is not a big deal.

 

As for the business deliveries,

. I doubt it will highlight the business supplies / products. You can't go to a lobby while making a delivery, but you can park the supplies somewhere and get to the safe distance if you see any of the clues presented above.

 

The cannon is operated by players, and players are predictable.

 

Or when you see a player inside his/her facility, it's time to hide, tp to apt by Lester's heist invite or go passive and stay in passive to make him pissed off.

 

The orbital cannon is the most powerfull weapon, it can destroy multiple Insurgents in the vicinity all at once.

Truck and Avenger MOC has no chance against it. Nightshark gets wiped out by one strike like nothing.
