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.

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.

Holy assumptions Batman!

 

I rarely use EWO and I never use glitches to gain an unfair advantage, I always try to play straight agains other players, even tryhards.

 

So yes, it used to bother me how the Orbital Cannon is a easy, risk free kill, then I just stopped caring about it, lately I just roll my eyes when someone teleports to their Facility to even up the "score" lmao

 

But still I think that's the worst addition to the game, at least the Hydra, the Oppresor, the Deluxo and Explosive Rounds have their uses, this thing only use is literally to grief, nothing more.

 

R* knows how power hungry tryhards, griefers and trolls are in this game, the Orbital Cannon is tailor made to them: stupidly expensive, powerful, completely broken and it doesn't even looks cool, it's just a bigass explosion, lame.

 

Yes, they would never remove it for obviou$ rea$on$, but at least nerf the f*ck out of it so it becomes a salty last resort instead of being part of the meta of the poor excuse that is PvP in this game.

Is the Orbital Canon abuse (quick exit after use) still going on ?

 

I don't want to test it myself. 😀

Well, to be fair, that doesn't mean it still works, he could very well still be hit with the bill when he rejoins, though this is R* so I doubt they would get their thumbs out their asses.

 

Also, were it nerfed? Saw plenty of people claim it could penetrate multifloored garages, yet here:

 

 

A relatively thing bridge blocks it. Did it perhaps hit a car straight on, or could it never penetrate terrain?

Not remove it nor balance it since the cannon does what it supposed to. But the spam glitch need to fixed and it needs to be cheaper to use.

I would say remove it, or at the very least, balance it.  Those in the middle of delivering Cargo should NOT be able to be targeted by the Orbital Cannon.

It can not be fixed or Im sure R would have done it already as its something that costs them money since players are not actually spending money to take the shot.

I use the cannon my self but its one of the worst features in the game and Im pretty sure it wont be removed or balanced or anything. R has made a lot of bad decisions in this game but this is pure stupidity.

The cooldown should start when you join a lobby. You can only shoot the cannon if you are in the lobby for a certain time. This would stop the cheaters who use the cannon then leave the lobby and join their friends and use the cannon again.

Fixing it is easy.

 

Just make the player pay upfront for a shot (either manual or automatic) and don't reimburse or let him make another shot if he misses.

 

People want to have an effortless kill button?

Fine, but pay for it (literally).

Actually, yes, it needs to be balanced, as much of an instant kill button could be balanced of course.

 

Just remove the explosion clipping through ingame structures and it would be balanced, it's just dumb taking cover under a tunnel and still being hit anyways.

 

And no, making Orbital Cannon shots cheaper wouldn't fix the issue, far from it, it would make it worse.

Idk must be broken like everything else then because it does take the money up front but dont save till after the kill is made.

Too many times I was kicking someones ass only for them to hide in their facility and use the orbital cannon. Either balance it or remove it.

What brain-dead, money hungry buffoon came up with this orbital cannon garbage over there at Rockstar?

 

I would really like to know.

Just fix the ability to quit out and rejoin in order to reuse it without cooldown or losing money as well as remove the 750k auto lock-on option and only have the 500k manual option and it would be fine imo.

I say leave it.  I got killed by it 3 times in the space of about 10 minutes the other day (twice by the same player, but I was the one glitching ;)).  There's no better way to prove how salty you are than to use the OC to no-skill someone.  If it gets you, it's like getting a gold star.

It did have a little nerf, not really sure when though.

The K/D stat needs to be removed more than anything. The Orbital Cannon is less of a priority right now.

Just leave it. It's just another thing to kill or be killed with in FR. In such cases of use, inevitably we are both losers. You, a loser for having to use it to get a measly kill. Me, for dying, because that was your intended goal by using it on me in the first place.

Quit glitch needs fixed. I'm tired of being the crash test dummy for repeat offenders that Quit and return via their friends to Do It again. Pointless

As someone who bought the Route 68 Facility only to have a quick travel to my Bunker in the same area, I agree, Heist Teleport needs to go.

 

As practical as it may be, it gets misused most of the time.
