I would say remove it. There are a lot of reasons for this. no matter what the price is people will always find a way to remove it. If someone is doing cargo they can get blown up even if they are under the bridge which can result in losing 2-3 million. Idk why rock star would add such a addition just for some stupid sharkcards. There is no warning or nothing, you do not know when it will strike you.

Does it really matter if it's there or not? I've only ever been hit by it once and probably some person using their free shot from when it was added to the game. In the past month I've never seen anyone killed by it. I think everyone realises it's expensive and pointless so nobody uses it any more.

I've been obliterated many times because someone always gets salty enough after I hand them their ass when they attack me for no reason. It's a 750k sign of defeat that shouldn't be in the game.

I've been hit by it once and I've never shot mine. I haven't even seen it used in a lobby since the week it came out. It would be cool if people used it more, but $$$$.

No Use For A Name

Someone was abusing it last night with no cooldown or leaving the session. Just one kill after another and he wasn’t targeting specific players. I quickly went passive because I’m not losing my orbital cannon virginity to someone who doesn’t care about me. 

 

It’s quite amusing to watch from the ground. The entire city block lights up

Thought that glitch was dead. Hmm.

 

Anyways, I’ve never been zapped yet. Well, I was a dozen times, but it uhh, didn’t work. 

 

I’ve never been witness to a close kill. What’s it look like?

Yes it does matter. There are so many ways to abuse it and its quite common to get hit by it on PC.

I played today for the first time since 3 weeks and my avenger blocked 6 orbital shots fired at me. Are you all hanging in Solo public or passive all day or what? lol

Feels more like the number of OC sweaters has increased in the time i was not playing.

There are always new ones coming out. Another problem is that some people keep it a secret, so no one except for one or two people know about it.

The only real problem with the orbital cannon is sh*tty ppl using it to destroy someone else's sale mission vehicle, the rest is just laughs, no problem at all.

Yeah (ironic). I can shootyou, leave the game, join again on your lobby and shootyou another time and repeat. This is not a problem.  LOL

Just a heads up there Hugh, when you enter your MOC and are on passive mode. The game will take you off it. (In case you went out thinking it was on still/again).

 

Only made that mistake once, lol.

That is clearly something broken, and must be fixed, but not the orbital cannon itself, also that never happened to me, and i play like 3 hours per day.. so i guess it's not that big of a deal. At least on PC, we have to worry more about griefers and modders than that.

Useless.. hackers can still blow you away if they want.

THIS, is the main reason the cannon sucks.. not 1 single person would waste 500k killing just 1 dude.. with the difficulty to recover that money grinding again..

Hehe,I pissed off a tryhard a few weeks back enough by not letting him kill me( staying in passive) and replying with LOL to all of his salty texts he was sending . his jerkoff buddy put a bounty on me and he orbitaled my ass,  I laughed my ass off over the whole thing.

It should be removed/refunded. I only ever used it once/the free shot and deliberately aimed about 40m away from some people fighting near a beach just for the wtf effect. It would have been too evil to actually hit them.

And what do you do for 3 hours? Are you passive all the time or what? I'm always playing VIP Work/Stand Your Ground, and there is always someone in the Orbital Canon doing this. 
This happened in the same lobby (minute 2:42 - 3:36):

It is very fun to see how they waste the money shooting the Avenger, but when you see that they leave the lobby and then come back to shoot you again, it is very tiresome.

I agree with this one. Though any hacker/cheater will find ways to exploit it, it's not as bad as say the Oppressor and Deluxo trollers you see it pretty much every session.

The deluxo is not a problem if you have the sniper with explosive ammo, in fact it's pretty fun to shoot them down haha. Another way would be to be in the stromberg (which can resist up to 6 heat seeking missile hits, this is also the best counter to the oppressor).

And no, you don't need to be hit with the Orbital Cannon ten times a day to see how problematic and outright awful it really is.

Oh for sure man, I just meant I see deluxo trolls around a lot, and over time it gets very annoying, that's all.

Even though i'm not the best, i usually take it as a compliment when a guy who i dominated uses that thing. I must have really bother him.

Random shots at me makes me laugh tho. My mindset is "sure have your sh*tty kill".

I think the people that get mad at the cannon, are the same ones killing themselves over and over again to deny kills, or the ones who resort to macros and glitches to get an edge, so they get super salty about a kill with something as effortless as the cannon.

It’s a feature that never should of been added and shows how is rockstar monetizing their game. 

 

The only people who’ll use this feature are tryhards who will never buy a shark card and wait for money glitches or Billy with his mom’s credit card. All it does is make free roam even worse.
