Player Scanner Hall of Shame Thread

Recommended Posts

So apparently it shows cash on hand, which would make it tougher to determine legitimacy if that’s true. 

 

Right now I’m nearly level 1350 but only have $100,000 on me since I buy everything a single character can have. I would look like a modder when I’m not.

Another newb question as I’m at work. Is the scanning instant or do you need to lock on target for seconds?

You have to look at the target for a few seconds. Seems to take longer the further you are from them. It can also scan from a large distance, through props etc but not buildings.

 

EDIT: Also if you scan them once, you won't have to scan them again for some time, info will appear instantly.

So, if someone scans me, are they going to see that I have made over 1.9billion? LMAO!

 

Edit: Or does it just show what you have currently?

It only shows the cash on hand / wallet, not bank nor total earnings etc. It's funny, mod menus on PC had / have this function, and now that Rockstar have the sources it's probably even easier for them to add these functions. Why they chose the stats they did though, completely eludes me. 

Also, the Player Scanner negates your Social Club "Stats Visibility" setting - even if that's private (set to "Me Only") other players will still get the info from doing a scan. That's no big deal to most, but could be something worth noting to others.

Well there's only one person getting to use this function on my character whose also on this forum.

 

As of now all data relating to my character remains in invite only/friend sessions, no more public appeareances for me. Whilst it may be a cool function to most

of you and seem I'm being too serious my character stats are mine and for viewing only on the social club, unless they are ever needed for a mission/inflitration

of my organisation. LOL.

Found the virtual serial killer who demands no less than 3 sex acts from each poor npc before clubs them for his cash back. /s

 

should have just said nothing.    :)

 

 

funny thing, my auto correct tried turning "npc" into "box," I was tempted to leave it as it cracked me up but even for gta it felt too crass.

However, as I've now stated in the OP spoiler, if a request to delete/redact a post is received, either in public, to me privately as the OP or directly to the poster themselves, I'd like to ask that the request be complied with.

 

Let's keep it light hearted, try to avoid character assassinations etc.

Well played dude, definitely ideal all are in on any fun. Good times.

 

And if anyone catches me out and about, go nuts with it, lol. 

 

Enjoy. :)

I have nothing to hide or be ashamed of either.

Is it possible to scan passive players?

I think so.

 

I've been too busy marauding around collecting scans to post and collecting drone strike clips to pay too much attention, but I'm sure I've scanned players in passive.

It would be cool if you could scan NPCs and every once in a while, one of them is wanted by the cops or has a bounty on them.  With the bounties, you simply kill them for some free cash, or if they are wanted by the cops, you dial 911, they come to the location and arrest the perp just for the lolz!

Yeah it's an interesting idea but it just feels too close to real life for my liking to have such a function in a video game. 

You can scan people IRL too?? 

Great, so now I can't play GTAO or leave the house ever again. 

 

Oh and I can't wait to get into a session full of try-hards.. Will be like working at Tesco scanning all those bar codes.

I scanned 6-7 people in bad sport lobby. 

 

Favourite vehicle: Opressor, Deluxo, Khanjali, and ..... Ingot(:O)

One player had 1 billion kills and 300 million death.

idea, I just hope it doesn't become a feature that starts getting abused by others.

 Then don't play games like The Crew. There you can see every stat from other players.

Right now I'm using mine to work out who to rob/who'll drop money if I send a mugger. But now I feel like finding high profile people and checking their stats. Great thread!

Was in a buddy's Terrorbyte and scanned 2 people.  Don't remember any stats now but I did remember that both players favourite car was the Classic Issi.  Surely that can't be right.

No. That's total B.S. scare tactics.

 

They can only scan you if you have something like a cell phone, a credit card, a drivers license, are driving a smart car (basically anything with automated systems like braking, lane tracking, collision avoidance, etc) or any other vehicle with license plates on it, are using a connected laptop with a camera, have a modern smart t.v./console/fridge/alexa, or one of any number of other connected devices.

 

Other than that they can't scan you for at all, don't worry. :blink:

That's good to know. I wanted to scan some people but there is no way in hell I am going into a public session in bad sport not in passive.

 

I think this thing is broken I have another account in bad sport and used it to scan myself but it said my favourite vehicle is the Akula and I have used it for maybe 30 minutes at most. My favourite vehicle should be the Kuruma I used it a lot when I was grinding missions before the businesses were released or it might even be the Savage now I use that all the time.

Here's mine. Favourite radio station doesn't mean much either I keep music in game muted

Are these stats taken from Social Club? Because if so, they might not be accurate. Couldn't work out how to self-scan so headed over to SC in an attempt to 'doxx' myself. According to that, I have 1hr 40m swimming time but no distance covered lol. I also know 0 deaths from drowning, fire etc. is wrong. 

I also can't see some of the scanner stats on SC either such as favourite vehicle. 

 

On the plus side, it says I have 0 private dances and 0 sex acts. I'm a good boy!
