Possible exploit by cheaters to blow up personal vehicles?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Today, on two separate occasions, WHILE in passive on PS4, I had my mechanic deliver a car. As soon as it arrived and I got into the car, it blew up and said another player was my killer, but that other player wasn't even near me. I suspect, too, that it is somehow an ignition bomb. Has anyone else experienced this?

Word processor.

 

But what you describe isn't possible in the game on PS4, so it's either a bug somehow (did you fit ignition bomb?), or someone exploiting a glitch (seems unlikely), or incredibly low chance it's someone with a funky PS4 running their own code.

Maybe he's living in an alternative reality where PS4 was jailbroken in 2018 and suddenly his parallel universe collided with our own reality? Please discuss.

Well sorry to hear that, im on ps4 and have not encountered that at all (yet)

Maybe some personal glitch in your copy/ps4.

I had one a glitch for a time where as any car I drove would not go to its top speed...

If it happens again try texting the player that sais killed you and ask him how he did it in a nice manner, maybe he in lightness you...

Half the time it was justified.. He would take my vehicles on a joyride all over the map and I'd have to chase him down and kill him..

I actually want to know how to use this exploit now.

 

Just imagine how effective it'd be against passive Deluxo sh*tters. Their day would be ruined before they try to ruin anyone else's.

What you can do, slap a proximity mine on their car. When they call it, the proximity stays on it. Also works with CEO vehicles and etc.

 

Probably what happened to OP. I know people who do this.

It gets people so salty. Like, I've received death threats for doing it.. :lol:

 

I'd find cars/ceo helis abandoned.. Slap one up in there and just wait.. Lol.

You didn't accidentally leave proximity mines from a previous sell mission. Have blown my myself up that way a few times or maybe he's leaving a sticky bomb and remotely detonating it?

Doesn't sound like a glitch or exploit. As others have said, sounds like legitimate game mechanics - all they're doing is throwing the bomb on it before you call it.

 

If you want to avoid this:

- Register as MC

- Request motorcycle

- Return to storage

- Call car from mechanic

Same here, also crew and friends.. but I'd back track my route and never find the mines(oddly).

 

I'd have to leave and rejoin.

 

Also a good possibility.. Because I know of people who do this, myself included. I cycle my cars and blow up my ceo vehicles if leaving them.

 

This is probably oldest trick in the book if honest. It's a cheap but creative way to kill someone who isn't expecting it.

Orbital Cannon, Off The Radar, or Ghost Org maybe?

Wait, so I can put down a proximity mine near an apartment for someone with a bounty and that can de-spawn if I get too far away / too much time, but you can put one on somebody's vehicle and it remains as long as it continues to be their active personal vehicle, despite the times it can vanish and suddenly reappear from spawning?

 

Logic.

 

It couldn't be the Duke of Death as that doesn't register someone else getting the kill. The others are probably spot on, that the OP was in combat with someone who killed you and then applied a mine or bomb to your car, only for you to call that car after activating passive mode (to get out of the area and escape for example) and then found out that ultimately, you'd been trolled.

I'd say it's the orbital cannon, but that doesn't work in passive mode.

 

Interesting, time to visit the evil site.

Has anyone else experienced this?

I have seen similar occurrences, recently, but not exactly the same situations as what you describe.

 

There was a time a few years back when players could snipe or blow up other players from great distances, or from within a wall breach across the map.

 

It was patched or fixed or whatever, but it went away.

 

However, I've noticed a couple of times now, being in a lobby with five or less, that suddenly there are explosions all around me, often when I'm about to retrieve my vehicle.

When I'm killed – the player is either no where near me or not even on the player list!

 

I first thought, "Orbital Cannon," but the explosions were scattered and all around the area.

Then I thought it was someone Off Radar, but nope... they were down at the airport.

 

Not sure if something is amiss, but rest assured, there's something going on and while it may have an explanation, I haven't got one.

 

Cheers! :)

Player simply can't be killed in passive mode by any explosive putted by other players. It will blow without damaging player's vehicle either if one managed to get into before impact, opposite - the vehicle will be blown without harm to the player.

2 things can kill someone in passive, a player passive bailing and ignition bombs. 1st is out of question, and second is not possible since you cannot enter the lscustoms with the car of another player. It is either a glitch or cheat.
