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.

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.

 

Of course they can, if only they wanted to...

 

 

They've tried and failed. Maybe im missing something though.

 

They can take more legal action against mod menus (especially the paid ones), they log pretty much everything you do in-game, so they can certainly do a better job at finding modders and people with modded money then they're doing now.

And if an algorythm can't do the job, just hire a bunch of people to do the work of picking out people with modded money.

Remember that this (see pic) is the kind of money they're making on this game, so trust me, if they really wanted to, modding would be a thing of the past.

No they can't. Ofc they want to, they are loosing millions because of it.

 

But they also know its a lost battle from the start so they kinda give up on trying that hard.

Oh hell yeah. Bye bye, orbital cannon, Deluxo, Oppressor rockets (bike itself can stay), Vigilante rockets, Stromberg rockets, explosive guns on jets, explosive sniper and homing launcher (wouldn't need either if jets had been nerfed to begin with), ability of ANY weaponized vehicle to lock on player-driven land vehicles... you could pare so much fat off this game and make it so much more bearable.

They've strayed very far from the original vision of this franchise. Back when playing GTA1 I'm sure nobody figured "Orbital Cannon" would be the natural evolution of where this game series would go.

It should be removed. I've seen modders completely f*ck up whole lobbys with the zero cool down thing.

Are you kidding? It's almost like a nod to the old top down times of the series. I'm sure in those days they didn't think about the franchise going 3d either but it had to evolve for the better.

The premise is still the same, cops vs crooks. Whether it be police, federal or army, and small time thugs to huge mobb bosses.

If the anti-cheat system was worth a sh*t, the Orbital Cannon would be cool.

Because of glitched money, yeah, it needs to be removed.

 

It's a tool for failures with a bunch of modded money. Sensible players who don't cheat, don't use it.

Last time you get acknowledged by me for at least one year:

 

If you can't handle homing missiles and explosive sniper rounds, you're just a whining, sniveling child. Call the wambulance and take a nap.

Going against the grain on this one, the orbital cannon is great. The only things that need to be changed are the ability to kill a player in passive and anywhere on the map....no hiding. R* needs to remove teleporting heist invites and allow players to place bounties without cool downs.

What an honor, being acknowledged by blaster.

I feel so proud now.

 

I thought you blocked me, btw?

Please do that. Thanks, dad.

On that note, explosive rounds should have stayed limited to the amount before, homing missles aren't so bad, it's just the people who depend on them for kills and overuse them that pisses everyone off imo.

 

Orbital Cannon was just a stupid decision.. With all these glitches for no cool downs, spamming them for free and to top it off with them being in an interior unable to kill the f*cker.

 

It's dumb.

The cannon is quite clearly a lot less fair of a tool to use against others than pretty much anything in the game.

 

We can start talking about weaponised vehicles, explosive rounds, the homing launcher and more all over again but let's be real here: they're all just part of a really messed up foodchain of killing tools. Taking out one or a few would have to mean taking out a bunch more. Don't forget why the homing launcher and such were added in the first place (well, most likely); Lazers and Hydras.

 

Going back on this subject will bring us back to the endless threads about removing explosive rounds from the jets cannons. So how about we stick to just talking about this very isolated and one-of-a-kind weapon that can actually be used from within the safety of our facilities?

I have the OC, used it a 'couple times' and it's a lazy feature.

 

It's basically the same thing them PS3 muppets were doings at press of a button.

 

So years later it's the same thing but now they charge you for it and give it a name.

 

Same with flying cars with missles, I remember those same muppets in they're ballers firing off missles.

 

Feels like R* seen the abuse, thought that everyone thinks it was fun and adds it.

 

Next we'll have an anti-gravity gun that levitates ya into the air then death.

 

How about breaking and entering?

Since introduction I have seen it used a handful of times, 6 at most (one of which was my free shot from xmas and one was fired on me - which I took as a compliment that someone thought I was that much of a threat).

 

It's not like it's much worse than a well placed air strike, which are as common.

 

The game's f*cked up too much already, it's not really going to make much of a difference if it's there or not.

I never get killed by orbital cannon yet. I am in passive mode most of the time, however people like using it on PC as most of the players got modded money.

 

I vote to remove it, because these stuff should not be in GTA.

Its not an instant kill. And it can be avoided by ghost, executive search, being under water, being in the back of an avenger and moc, being under a tall building, being under ground, being in passive, staying in any property. The glitch should be fixed to reuse it.

Seen it used less than 10 times since release, that includes when people were bypassing the cooldown. Idk, I play nearly everyday and it doesn't seem to be an issue.

 

I think it is plenty balanced for legitmate players. It's super expensive and has a long cooldown. I'm fine with that.

 

Still waiting to get blasted once. I guess one day I need to buy the cannon so I can get the trophy as well.

Imagine Bad Sport with these glitches though..jesus. lol

 

I'll nuke you with my free shot while you sip champagne and smoke cigars in my Luxor Deluxe.

Pretty sure my MOC and Avenger "blocked" atleast more than 100 of those strikes fired at me. I think i got killed twice by it. It´s annoying. It slows down the gameplay alot when you have to wait for that f*cker to shot your portable anti-orbital vehicle. So yes, i voted for removing that thing. Im be like "Dude, im lvl 80 and you lvl 500+ needs a orbital cannon to kill me once? Dafuq?" Yes, my low lvl acc saw alot weierd sh*t. :sigh:

This thing should have never been added in the first place. It adds nothing worthwhile to the game. The only worth one could possibly associate with it is the price tag for using it and the value of goods destroyed with its help. It's nothing more than a money sink, and a f***ing stupid one as well, since only very desperate trolls and useless modders would even waste their time and money on this thing. It is things like this piece of garbage that makes it abundantly clear that R* have become so greedy that they forgot how to GTA.

In this, or another thread, you asked why folk harrass you and such, but with answers like this, it's no bloody wonder. Forget the 2.0 bollocks, this is exactly why people see you as an ignorant, arrogant, and wrong, troll at times.

 

The dude expresses an opinion and as you disagree you go to say it's the last time they get acknowledged by you for at least a year. (As if that's supposed to mean something too. You really aren't that significant here, lol. Just funny to read at times - Like this reaction I quote).

 

You do this too often though. Hell, this chap wasn't even quoting you but only offering his opinion to the forum in general, lol. But you respond in such a way, and cut people off and give them no chance to respond to your pettiness/accusations/insults which builds frustration and contempt among folk towards you. I see you doing this often.

 

It's genuinely daft, learn to accept and respect others opinions more, then people won't ride you like you complained about. Preferring that certain things hadn't come to the game isn't wrong or as one's opinion, nor does it mean they're poor at the game/using/countering the things mentioned. Much like it isn't wrong to want things to stay, like this cannon, or more to come even.

 

It's just opinion, chill out dude...

 

Otherwise, that ignore/block list will soon be full again, lol. ;)

Voted to keep it...I've been hit by it at least a dozen times and only used my free shot so far. Only one time was I hit and really didn't know why....

 

Doesn't bother me to get hit with it and I won't usually waste time hiding from players I suspect are about to use it against me. It feels like a win when someone needs to resort to it against me.

 

I do agree that patching the OC glitch needs to happen though. When someone hits me and immediately quits the lobby it feels like a very hollow victory.

I got orbital cannoned the other day for the first time. Straight away the little turd left so he'll be able to use his free cannon again. I don't care if it stays, or leaves. But I'd like the free orbital cannon shot fixed or removed to avoid people using it to be a BIG BITCH

I like it fine as it is. If they were to start to removing annoying stuff where would end? With the deluxo's rockets, the oppressor, jets, explosive rounds, homing launcher, etc., etc.?

There is an achievement tied to orbital cannon, so why would they remove it?
