I say keep it, it makes me laugh when it costs someone $750,000 to make me dead for.... 10 seconds. 

 

It lets me know I'm getting under someone's skin. 

 

Just a couple of days ago I had 1.5 million spent on making me dead for 20 seconds. No, they didn't leave the session.

I would agree if people actually paid for their shots instead of closing the game to avoid paying for it and coming back to hit you again with it.

The spineless crew Vape loves doing that. 4 times from whom by his name I would assume is its leader, after he and 2 of his guys picked a fight me, lost horribly, cried to their crew and got 3 more guys to come into the lobby, and still get beat until they resorted to orbital cannon glitching. After which I continued to kill little scrubs until I had purged them from the lobby. Lucky for them I have not seen a Vape member since, after the stunt they pulled I will kill anyone in that crew I come across

Haven’t read anyone’s posts here, but here is my opinion on this bullsh*t item added with the Doomsday DLC.

 

• People can simply have a big explosion hit them and destroy them and possibly their cargo/product. That’s OP as f*cking hell. I mean, what the f*ck were the folks at Rockstar thinking.

• It’s game breaking as it is enough. People are able to duplicate and get infinite refunds at this moment with this game breaking addition.

• This is such a terrible way to get killed by “1-0” score seeking tryhards. You literally have to be on the pause menu every 20 seconds as you never know who may join just to cannon you. That’s how tryhards get uploaded nowadays.

• Also, along with the infinite refunds exploit, people are able to turn off internet connection right away when firing an orbital cannon to avoid the $500,000 or $750,000 loss in their money. Then, they can easily rejoin using the friend list with no cooldown timer.

 

Yes, this has to be removed. Although, there is a trophy, it’s kinda hard to convince Rockstar to remove this thing. Maybe if a petition is shared throughout the whole community, it will be removed. After all, there was a petition for Bikers DLC and look what happened.

Sadly, a Biker DLC could be easily monetized (and it actually was), a QoL update doesn't sell Shark Cards (or at least that's what Take Two wants to believe).

 

There's also the fact that the community of this game is fragmented and toxic as f*ck, you will start seeing the old comments like "it's free dlc", "it's no op", "stop crying" and so on.

 

That's why we can't have nice things.

Does the OC even benefit Rockstar financially? If not, then I see no reason for its existence.

I don't see it, the shark card money would not last long either at 750,000 a hit. Nobody hitting the oc every chance they get is using shark card money unless they are really dumb and rich.

Yes.

 

The Orbital Cannon is used mostly against people selling cargo, which could influence Shark Card sales.

 

Also, in theory, it empties glitched/modded funds from players with way more GTA$ than common sense.

Too many people think their tough after getting 1 orbital cannon kill and leaving, tryhards abuse the fck out of this for pathetic “1-0’s”. Basically it’s like your god mode and no one can do sh*t if you just leave the session or stay in facility. So yea I think this pathetic no skill cancer weapon needs to be removed.

I don't think so.  In my experience it's used at least 80% of the time as an act of extreme butthurt against someone who has the upper hand in a PvP war.  In my worst "kill everyone" days, I had a massive number of people who would eventually teleport back to their facility and then either OC me, or try to (I quickly learned all the workarounds to avoid it).  This is especially prevalent when fighting crews - they love sending one person back to the fac while the others keep you busy.  I was killed from orbit way more because of PvP than when I was running my businesses.  (In fact, despite doing months of grinding after the Doomsday Heist release, I don't think I ever got randomly killed by the OC while doing a business run.  I was worried about it, but it never happened.  Though I did see a couple guys just trolling by doing the OC on random people and quitting to the next lobby, over and over, but they didn't hit me thankfully.)

 

But anything that costs that much money, is a guaranteed kill (under most circumstances), and can instantly interfere with whatever anyone else is doing... yeah, that's going to boost shark card sales at least a little bit.  if nothing else, I bet some people bought cards just to afford the piece of sh*t, as well as the facility it comes in.

I like that - it makes being obliterated kinda funny and disarms the whole process in my opinion. From now on I'll just think of any future blasts from orbit as an Act of Extreme Butthurt :lol:

 

 

 

Though this also kinda undermines the impact and significance of the destruction of Alderaan in Star Wars: A New Hope for me as a side effect but what can you do

It’s good to use if someone keeps killing you on purpose other than that it’s useless

On balance, I say keep. It isn’t used so much on consoles as to be considered a nuisance. I don’t consider any irregular use of it on PC by “script kiddies” or any other mod or hack to be a legitimate reason to be rid of a feature, because it is their illegal use of it which is the issue, not the feature itself.

 

As Nutduster says above, the weapon is used by the butthurt in acts of frustrated revenge. It is the Orbital Butthurt Cannon.

 

If I have got to somebody who is willing to blow half a million or more for one revenge kill, then I will wear that badge with pride. Job well done.

True, but most of the time, people just use it either for revenge or for the sake of the no cool-down glitch.

 

And the fact that they allowed players to teleport to their facility to take advantage of it...

 

These f*cking devs, I swear.

I wouldn't mind that if they actually spent that ammount of money to get a free kill on me instead of them bypassing that price and the cooldown to boot.

 

Also, for someone with billions in modded money, $750k is nothing anyway. But yeah, it's too late to remove it now.

As said, you could argue that any of the game’s play mechanics are going to be a nuisance if they are being used illegally by way of glitches, mods, modded money, cooldown bypasses and other cheat methods.

 

When used legitimately, it is too cost prohibitive to be a real menace, and it is rarely seen on consoles in my experience.

I'm really getting tired of checking the map every 15 seconds. Not getting out of passive when someone's in their facility unless I can go off radar/ghost. Won't be the first time I get obliterated randomly.

It's hard to have fun playing the game like this, I have still no idea why I'm still playing this damn forsaken game.

Yes it should be removed. Their is an insanely easy money glitch using the orbital cannon too, 750,000 every 2 minutes which may give rockstar an incentive to remove it.

You don't even need to be bad sport. I done the glitch a couple of times the other day in a normal public lobby. I got around 20 million in half an hour. Before anyone says I shouldn't glitch, i refuse to put real money into a bug infested game. Ammo disappearing, vehicles I purchase go missing etc
