Ok so in the last update Rockstar added the Orbital Cannon. A weapon of massive trollstruction to the likes we've never seen besides modders and all the other crazy sh*t in GTA of course :bored: However pretty recently there's been a glitch that allows players to constantly use the orbital cannon with no cooldown. In my opinion this is obviously horrible given that people will obviously abuse it to the max there by just completely making any lobby unmanageable. Once again though in my personal opinion I believe that it should be removed completely from the game since it just seems so overpowered and unbalanced. Wha are you guys thoughts?

Try to balanace. I think that in addition to the cooldown timer, it should double in price to use it, resetting after a real-life week.

Double the price to use it? wtf man :p it's almost a million already. I can't see any reason it should be more than 50k to kill a person once.

Honestly I want it removed all together. Especially since there's a glitch that allows it to be used infinitely without 0 cooldown.

Not in the same lobby though, unless you rejoin via an invite from a friend. It's not like they can just boom boom boom all day long.

I only agree with half of this statement. While yes they have to rejoin I disagree with them not being able to boom boom all day long. They pretty much can if they want to.

Problem isn't really that it just kills a player, though. I haven't fallen victim to it yet but from what I know it also destroys whatever vehicle you're in and that would include any vehicle containing precious stock that you're trying to sell, no? IMHO, it should cost more than what the player loses to blow them up then. They also had to put in time, money or both to get that stuff.

 

But about that and the poll, I found a third option. I removed myself from most public sessions.

Are they really that big of a problem? I'm passive all the time when I'm not alone, but still. I rarely if ever see the popup for someone being killed with it

i think it's perfectly balanced as it is. if someone thinks they need to spend 750k to kill me, i take that as a compliment.

i very rarely see orbital cannon shots in sessions though, so it doesnt really strike me as a problem.

Get that thing out of the game. Its nothing but a trolling tool for salty tryhards with tons of scriptkid cash.

yeah I´d rather remove it .... usually I´m welcoming every new addition to the game , but this is a pure Troll tool IMO , despite its price+cooldown ( but really R* , you know that so many ppl have Billions of modded money :D ,so money ain´t a problem for them).

Plus if you got hit by it , you can do absolutely NOTHING about it ... talking about balance :D

Remove it.

 

This and research are the 2 worst things added. Though, as this is yet to be an issue for me personally. Research is still my number one disliked addition. That just hampered my natural game more than this has. But seen folks bombarded by this and lobbies turn to sh*t quickly because of it too. Pathetic stuff really, as one time, some nut job was thinking he was good at the game with it, lol.

 

What an embarrassment!

It really is man. Maybe you missed it but there's a glitch that allows it to be used over and over again. R will most likely patch it but unfortunately knowing how persistent and annoying trolls in online can be there'll be another way for them to get unlimited orbital cannon shots within the week of it being patched.

Honestly, it's pretty funny to see someone obliterated, I just can't help but laugh at it, even if I'm the victim. I've seen it used plenty of times (PC..).

 

If you're worried about your freemode grinding...idk what to say to you...it's been ruined long before DDH. I've been doing all my work with my crew in solo public sessions ever since crates came out.

Remove it. We don't need an instant kill button at any price.

Should never have been added. One of the most ill conceived additions to the game.

 

There absolutely shouldn't be a one button auto kill even when accompanied by the price tag it has. I'm poor at ground PvP, but I shouldn't be able to teleport away from someone and make use of my 9 figure bank balance to f*ck them over. Sales/supply/heist prep vehicles should be immune.

 

Most of us know counters to it like MOC and Avenger or go passive/heist teleport if we see someone make a beeline for their Facility, but Orbital Cannon really shouldn't be a thing.

 

It's a lazy, money draining, troll tool.

Of course it should be removed lol. Though it never will be. I don't think they've removed any weapons - only nerfed them into uselessness, or added other things that make them pointless.

 

It's not as much of a problem as I figured it might be, since off radar takes away the auto-lock option, and by the time I'm back on the radar I'm in an Avenger/MOC, just waiting to waste their money. Invariably glitched money, but meh, it's still a kill denied.

 

That said it has no place in the game to be honest. Drones would've been a better idea. Since, you know - at least they could miss, be shot down, etc. And even those would've been really annoying. Maybe RC vehicles should've been the most similar thing we got to this. A tiny little helicopter dropping bombs, Vice City style.

It shouldn't be here in the first place. Not in any of it possible variations.

Remove it.

 

Or:

Increase the price.

Remove autoaim.

Solve the glitch:shoot, leave the lobby, return and shoot again (without countdown and losing money).

Warn that someone is using it.

Add protection ($$$) against orbital shoots.

Ive had plenty of fun with the cannon but it should be removed and everyone refunded their 900k.

The problem is the glitch that comes with it. No one is paying. Its a free shot.

These kids are running to the cannon after u get only 1 kill on them then its a waiting game till they leave the facility. Its just as bad or worse than ghost org.

It was a bad move by R* to implement it in the first place.

 

Quite frankly, just making it a surveillance satellite was good enough, just drop the price to like 100-200k.

You can still use it to survey the map and see what's up, see who's where and what the dealio is.

It's ridiculous and should never have been added. Don't care about the cost or cooldown. sh*tty thing to put in a PvP game.

Heck no! As a matter of fact, for 5 million you should be able to fire it like that girl from blade runner. Free if it's being shot at the hobos 😂

there are many things i could advocate for removal, but if things when down and the game was shaped based on my likings, the game may not appeal to the broad audiences.

 

with that said, i have no issue with the orbital cannon, it can be annoying when targeted by multiple users but overall its a once every 48mins thing, so yeah while you can kill me for a cool 500/750k, i can easily go get whatever vehicle i was in and continue doing my thing.

 

i'd rather remove stuff that had a major negative(imo) impact on the pvp side of the game like the explosive sniper, flying bike and the missiles of the deluxo.

It should be removed since Rockstar can't patch the glitches that abuse this thing, it won't be removed or even changed knowing Rockstar though.

On top of it most likely never being removed it'll just make doing freemode work unbearable.

Remove it, because the whole idea is goddamn stupid and it only rewards those who glitch money.

 

No sane person that actually works and grind their cash would continually use this unless it's for free.

 

It's just cancerous.
