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 

Damn straight.

Last time (or one time at least) there was a money glitch with the orbital cannon, people got their money removed after a short while. 

Glitch away but use other glitches than one that includes the OC

So being killed by a weapon a couple of times is enough for you to want it removed?

If said weapon can be fired from a 100% safe, enclosed space then yes.

So an RPG or Heavy Sniper round from someone in Godmode would qualify also?

Thats comparing apples and oranges. You are comparing a legitimatly aquireable property with a cheat.

Yes you are comparing apples and oranges. Godmode is not a feature in this game, it is not aquireable by legit methods and by that not important at all for this discussion.

If a gun allows you to kill players from a 100% save space, thats aquired by a 100% legit way, that gun should be removed.

Why? There's a cooldown of almost an hour.

YELLOW ZOOMER WITH DRONE

Which used to be easily bypassed with a glitch.

 

You know, I used to think that, obvious balancing reasons aside, R* would never remove the Orbital Cannon from the game by virtue of players having spent money to buy it, but seeing their utter incompetence to even try to balance something that is outright broken in principle, I'll suggest to either nerf the f*ck out of it or just remove it altogether.

Meh, if I'm not getting Godmode, you're:p not getting cooldown glitch

 

Players have been saying that about Jets for years and they're still in the game. I would argue that the OC offers a good counter against them. Remember the days when 1 player in a jet could terrorize a whole lobby if he or she was a good pilot? Not anymore :D

It is the epitome of balance, albeit set on a massively expensive set of scales, that an unskilled noob of a player can take out a seasoned griefer with one press of a button.

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 doesn't really strike me as a problem.

I like the pun in the second sentence. ;)

now that it cannot be fired for free with the glitch, i’m perfectly fine with it existing. 750k is a lot of money to all but the most dedicated glitcher really

 

i have not seen it used this month

Definitely keep it, but of course patch the glitch where people leave without paying. 

 

Great feeling when someone is doing a bunker sale or something, and you get all the organisation together in spot before blasting them to smithereens. Not to mention the potential it has with car meets

It's not a glitch; it's an exploit. You're tricking the server, basically. You disconnect your Internet the moment you fire it, and the game doesn't register the pay.

 

I don't think you can "fix" that.

I tried this trick, had no cooldown, but I did lose my money over it. So they have probably changed it so you pay up front, and if you disconnect there will be no refund for not taking the shot.

They should save the game the second you purchase the shot, if you leave no refund. I'm still getting shot with it and they leave so I assume nothing changed.

In principle, no, because of the cost per use being its own balance mechanism. It needs fixing though if people have (typically) found ways to abuse it with a cheat of some kind.

No, I like to use it from time to time and it's $750k shot anyway. (Unless the player is using godmode or manages to escape and you'll be refunded your shot).

I still have that free shot being gifted on Christmas. 

I want to give it to a special friend of mine on special location.

It's like a pretty and expensive Sith volcanic glass dagger that shatters in the wound and gives excruciating agony to that most valued enemy of yours.

It's very special.

LOL Orbitals are incredibly easy to avoid. PROTIP: Check the map when you're heading somewhere for people whacking it in their facility. Typically a sign that someone's salty and what I've noticed is that when they get angry at a person they can't get, they'll take their anger out on someone else.

 

BIGGER PROTIP: Don't do sales or other business/MC related free mode missions in a freaking public lobby. Suspend that sh*t or go in a friends only/closed session. You invite yourself to being attacked in populated servers. There will always be an asshole looking to grief.

 

Protip 3: Stay in an interior or underneath larger places such as the subway, underpasses, construction sites, parking lots, etc.

Not just no, but hell no.  There is nothing better than this relief on a cheap kill. Most of the really sh*tty players know what's coming and leave as soon as they see you in a facility.
