They need either to remove it or patch it. Changing the price won't change anything. Currently, there is a trick to use Orbital Cannon for free and without any cooldown. I have to confess, I was abusing it several times.

When you suck so bad you can't even shoot someone with auto-aim and you're so slow you didn't EWO in time... take that invite to your facility and pay to get a kill!

Easy way to get revenge on griefers when I don't feel like chasing them down. I just used it 20 mins ago for the first time in 2 months

Never bought one, the price tag alone for firing it put me off from the get go, I've never been killed by one either (probably because I use the MTU method and rarely see other players). So no opinion on it other than I can see why some people find it an annoying griefing tool, as ofc there is/was a glitch to use it for free and with no cool down. R* really should know how bloody toxic their player base is by now, I mean it's been 5 years, don't they read se7en sins?

It's the ultimate griefing tool, I agree with that, and there will always be idiots who resort to it time and time again irrespective of cost, mostly because they can't control their angry impulses I guess, but I think of these people as the simpletons who don't have much imagination and don't enjoy the beauty of just 'being' in GTA online and roleplaying the experience. They can do what they want, and like a few people have already mentioned, getting hit by an orbital cannon is only one kill against me and seems more like a compliment than an insult because I never resort to it myself.

 

People who regularly use the orbital cannon are stupid and weak and a little poorer too, and that's OK with me because I consider myself a more rounded player than that.

Keep it I haven't been hit by it untill today because I was talking sh*t sending messages back and forth with a tryhard. Besides that it was the sweetest method of revenge ever on asshole players who griefed me. Also with 47 million in my account it doesn't put much of a dent in my pocket. Matter of fact I paid a lot of money to buy it so I say nay dont get rid of it.

90% of the times this thing killed me while I was doing some Hangar missions on my alt account, without any precedent negative interaction with the person. Litterally playing my missions alone in a corner of the map in order to unlock aircraft trade prices(plus it was during that recent double event week).

 

Other 10% were more or less justified, but I was launching ballistic tests from my Avenger bay so didn't counted as player kills. At least those guys had some good reason to use it.

 

The most epic death was when I owned no other aircraft than that unarmed Cuban 800, I used it to travel from LSIA to Grapeseed(Rogue mission) and was OC-ed like that, over Alama sea. Kind of achievement.

I never bought it either and when I find out people I know bought one I laugh at them (in hopes that they waste all that money shooting me with it!). Hasn't happened yet but when it does I'll laugh even harder, it's such a R* troll to add that it's hilarious.

 

Honestly the first time you get orbitaled I bet you'll feel flattered for being worth that much to someone, I know I was.

I don't mind it. Only been killed by it once, so it doesn't really bother me. Now, all the flying missile-shooting cars and bikes, that's a much bigger annoyance.

Boo hoo,

You babies won't stop crying about this will you?

 

I've been killed with it once and that was in March.... three months until I got nuked.

The orbital cannon's not that bad as you pussies claim it is

And I have been killed by it about 15 times (record was 4 in less than 10 minutes) and managed to escape additional 6 strikes.

Your point is?

 

99,9 of these attacks came from salty tryhards who attacked me, got their a$$ handed to them and ran off (or better teleported off) crying like a sissy.

Its nothing but a trolling enabler for tryhards with tons of modded cash.

I get killed with it a lot. Sometimes people invite their friends to the lobby to use it on me so I get repeatedly killed by it. I don't like it, but I don't bother trying to hide from it. Visually it's rubbish. It would be ok if there was some giant beam of light coming down from the sky or something, but as it is it looks cheap. Merryweather with jets and tanks for a couple of hundred k would have been a more fun idea than this tbh.

If we can't remove the degenerate scum, we must nerf or remove the tools that the degenerate scum use.

I bought it. I'll probably never use it.

I did it to one guy today who actually trash talked me a few days before. I muted him after I struck him so that he couldn't send me any messages, but what do ya know? He gets his buddy to text me, calling me "scum". I decided to finish off his word by replying with "bag".

I'm just greatful I was never obliterated during a supply run or sale that would've really made me hate the orbital strike. I have been surprised attacked by an akula during a sale but I shut down the application before I got the prompt saying myself was destroyed so I didn't loose much.people don't use orbital strike much because it's expensive. You're more likely to be attacked by an opressorhydra,jetpack deluxo, kunjali tank etc. Still I say keep the orbital strike and just patch the glitch.

It will never be removed. Ever.

Then it should be "balanced", badly.

 

- There shouldn't be auto aiming.

- Manual shot cost $750k.

- If you miss, you still pay and get cooldown.

- Any ceiling can protect you from the blast.

- The game should notify you when someone's on his Orbital Cannon camera.

 

Just my $0.02.

Remove it, the Deluxo's weapons/hover mode, the Oppressor, the Ruiner 2000's parachute/rockets (if people want a K.I.T.T. replica, then fine), anything like that.

...I mean, it'll never happen at this point, but I'd love a complete rollback of all the gimmicky fantasy vehicles and features - and dial back the amount of ownable military-grade stuff, too.

I'd happily get rid of Pegasus Hydras, Savages, Rhinos, and just have you steal them, like the good old days of GTAO and earlier games. "Hindsight is 20/20", and all that...

In a "competitive multiplayer", there should never be a weapon that kills players without effort. Imagine cod, with a nuke that lets you kill a player instantly by turning in lets say, 5 crypto keys.

 

That kind of sh*t wouldnt fly in half decent shooters, gta gets away with it because it walks a fine line. Isn't exactly competitive, but it is.

i say keep it, let us spam the sh*t out of it for free but not againsts players. and let us use it and the avenger during missions

 

maybe make it 10k with a minute cooldown

 

if you do use it against a player it should cost 750k, and have no auto aim. it should not affect sell vehicles or ie.

 

also the fire for free glitch needs pastching asap but i doubt it will as it lets people kill people doing freemode sells easily and it's basically the same glitch as heist resets.

Yeah but that's been like that since it was released and it will always be like that. It still doesn't matter, that's more effort than shooting someone with a chopper.

The orbital cannon is perfectly fine.

The issue is the fact that you can glitch it, and that loads of people seem to have infinite money from mods.

So if rockstar takes action, it should be against glitches and modders, not against the orbital cannon.

 

If everybody would have to go through the same grind to get their hands on 500k or 750k, nobody would have a problem with the orbital cannon.

Im gonna have to disagree with this. It should be completely removed from the game. You cant deal with modder and glitchers but you can deal with the orbital cannon glitch by completely removing it.

I voted to keep it, but I don't use it anyway due to how expensive it is.

 

I think with continued usage over a 24-hour period, it could double in price each time. There are ways to balance it out better such that you don't need to start removing game features.

 

But I would like to see the initial cost to use it decrease. I mean, you've already spent a million adding the damn thing to your facility.
