Reduce the price of using it to 5000 but make it so you can only target players with a high mental state.

 

Turn it into a high threat neutraliser.

It never should have never been a thing to begin with. Who over there at Rockstar approved of this decision?

It's used quite regularly on PS4 in BS lobbies.

You know how you can't sell an I/E car right after you join a lobby? There's a timer. The logic is in the game, just apply it to the cheater cannon. Maybe it won't stop the exploit, but at least you'll have some time of preparing yourself if your awareness is decent.

Disregard that, it's no longer the case. It's been quite a few updates since I last grinded I/E, maybe it got changed after they enabled the vehicle warehouse as a session spawn point? I'm pretty sure back then, in Smuggler's Run or Doomsday, you couldn't sell a car first thing after joining the lobby.

Anyway, my point still stands, add a timer before the OC can be fired after join, and the timer should be preferably longer than the ghost org timer. Like a last resort if they really can't patch the exploit.

I'd also like to see refunds completely eliminated. The cannon fired and you hit my RC or I had overhead cover? Thanks for your money, try again in 48 minutes.

I know it's an old thread, but here's what I hate about it:

 

"Player A was obliterated by the Orbital Cannon"

"Player B left"

 

Every. Single. Time.

Keep it in the game, just

- Make sure to fix any glitches that let people repeat shots

- Do a longer cooldown, so only 1 shot per real life day allowed or something

 

Imo its not any more stupid then the rest of the stuff they added to the game, so it sorta fits with the rest of the game & at any rate it actually fits the facility quite well, its overall more believable to me that theres some 'facility' in real life with this kind of hardware in orbit. At the very least i'd believe that over anyone having hovering rocket bikes in real life 😛 

I only use it when i get free shots (so used like 2ce so far) and i dont mind even in the slightest if somebody blows me up with one, i get all zen like knowing they spent 500-750k on a single kill & always remind them of that then carry on with my game like nothing happened, 75% of the time they boast about having 100's of millions, 100% of the time i just dont care, they still wasted a good amount of money on a single kill, good times.

But there's no reason for it to stay in the game other than to grief.

Correct. They really have no place in the game, either. I'd rather not have any of them in the game, because then more players would actually drive normal vehicles like in 2013 and 2014. 

 

I miss those times.

Honestly, haven’t seen the OrbCan used in months. Might use it today on a mic screamer for nostalgias sake.

I dunno why you guys complain so much about it. Don’t let it get to you. 

 

Look, here’s what you do: have a heist jump ready when you see they’re in their facility. Then, get a van, scatter debris around it and play Billy Ocean’s “Caribbean Queen” so they THINK they blew you up.

Not everyone is going to have the "What if someone's trying to OC me right now?" state of mind at all times. A lot of the time, I'm so invested into my gameplay that I tend to forget about the douche I killed a few moments ago, and now he's going to OC me out of the blue.

 

Sometimes I get OCd by someone I never even interacted with. I'm not going to be pausing every femtosecond just to see who could be thinking of OC me, because then it will be 24/7 paranoia, and you won't be able to enjoy the game anymore.

This is worth watching because it’s great.

I would not be surprised if dumbstar made it even more deadly just for the money cheaters. They already make the flying dildo even more op than it was already....TWICE at least.

Not possible when you're in the middle of a delivery.  Hence why I only ever deliver in public solo sessions.  The OC needs removing or a complete change in how it works.

Remove the ability to target or even see people making Deliveries.

Increase the count down time to fifteen seconds and trigger a forced save/Cloud sync the moment "Fire" is pressed. The Manual Targetting would also get the fifteen seconds timer so you better be good.

 

Missed shots DO NOT get refunded.

 

There, three easy ways to fix the Orbital Cannon and stop the free shot glitch. I dont understand why its so hard for R*, oh thats right...its easy for people to destroy Cargo to force Shark Card sales and even the shooter wastes money.

Has anyone actually bought a shark card after failing or losing a sale in a public lobby? 

 

Just curious.

Go to a private lobby. If you're doing an export related job, keep finding a new lobby until you see an empty one. Prablem salved!

I doubt it happens like that, "welp I just wasted x amount of time, better spend 20 bucks again". It's more like, you don't have enough money for the thing you want to buy at that moment, and that's because you either haven't had many sales, don't grind or don't play that much.

Like with any other weaponized vehicle in the game, the orbital cannon can be your worst nightmare or best friend, depending on the user.

 

In my case, there’s nothing more hilarious then to use it on the biggest, baddest try hard in the lobby.  And it’s virtually guaranteed that they’ll leave so you’ll be doing the lobby a favor.  Today, I chased away two try hards and stopped a third from destroying a random’s bunker sale mission in their Hydra.

 

I say keep it in as is!

The prablem isn't salved, solo public sessions aren't a solution, they're a workaround. You're not fixing the prablem, you're just merely avoiding it.

 

You shouldn't have to go out of your way to look for an empty session in order to make the game actually playable. A multiplayer game is fundamentally flawed if the best way to play it is completely alone.

Haha good work.

 

What they should do is make the OC free to use against players with a high mental state. That would be awesome and bring some order to those lobbies with griefers destroying everything.

You know for a fact that the consensus on these forums is "f*ck Shark Cards" and that the people that frequent them are hardcore GTA players who hate the idea of GTA becoming a MTX mobile game so the answer would be skewed in the direction you want it to be. As the other user said "billions in sales", do you honestly think that none of that came from people wanting stuff, getting their sh*t wrecked and just saying "f*ck IT!" and buying a Shark Card?

Once again, I’m asking if any of the forum members have gotten so angry from losing a sale that they bought a shark card.

 

No need to be on the defensive, sometimes a question is just a question.
