@Pocket Fox Nah, he could kill me so it definitely wasn’t parley.

 

He wasn’t starting up a mission or anything either.. we were a group warring each other in Blackwater. Every time he killed me he ran zig-zag towards me and I couldn’t lock on to him, then when he got close BAM he shot me. I didn’t stand a chance..

 

Obviously some kind of dirty cheat, and then my internet crashed which I also found a bit suspicious...

Still havent gotten shot before. Although someone fired at my feet once when i was going around a corner near their direction at fort mercer. We both were not wall hugging but still i got the hint and ran the other way.  I thought the warning shot gesture was quite awesome.

Sorry if I offend anybody but this weekend the cry babies were out in full force. Just logged on and going through St Denis. Guy shoots me for no reason and kills me..Ok... found him and shot back clean kill. Now the guy wants to bitch and moan for the next 15 minutes as he is trying to get revenge. All chat is laughing at him as he is swearing up a storm because he cant get his revenge. Each time he got near me...shotgun to the face. He followed me all the way to Strawberry bitching and moaning.

 

I had another guy later in the day joined in a shoot up in Valentine. Mind you all of us were playing around killing each other. This guy joined in and started an argument because we all had shotguns and he didn't. To him it wasn't fair and we are griefing him. Umm WTF you joined in.

 

Yesterday I forgot I had a treasure map. I popped it and went up northeast for it. Went past a guy and I didn't have a gun drawn. He sent a warning shot past my head so I stopped. Again he shot and it hit my horse. I ignored the second shot and trotted along. Stopped to check my map and blam I am dead. Re spawn and turned on voice chat and tell the guy I was traveling to my marker. He responds "you stopped to kill me".  Umm you fired first and I had no gun drawn. He finds me and kills me again. Ok now it's on. I find him and kill him. I find him again and shot gun to the face this time I kill the horse. This goes on for 4-5 kills of him as he cant get his revenge. Now the dude is raging in chat about how he lost all his hides now. Again I tell him you started it and I finished it. Now I get the blah blah..I am reporting you.... I am an ahole....I am being called every bad name in the book. I tell him don't start something you cant finish. I grabbed my treasure and left the lobby.

 

Word to the wise and its plain and simple you want to act like a hard ass in game just make sure you can back it up. Don't get all triggered because somebody actually shoots back at you and takes you down.

Lag-switch perhaps? 

 

I don't know. I don't game on console much. I just want to live in a world without cheats. Both in video games and professional sport.

I really hope this isn't some known cheat that will start becoming more popular.  I expect R* will hit cheaters pretty hard.

I do agree griefing is cited as the issue more than it probably should be. Going after missions when told we can choose to is not even close to grief.

 

But it is rampant in games all round too. And with glitches often left to run riot, only goes to encourage sh*t play more and more. (Especially with sites made to share and spread such pettiness).

Sawn-off shotgun is awesome. 

 

Any time a player lasoos me i just break free, press trigger and boom - I blow his head off!!

 

It works every single time.

 

Don’t even need to aim. Just hit trigger as soon as you break free and he’ll not have enough time to react. 

 

If you’ve got dual wielding sawn offs you should also be able to take out his mate if he has one. 

 

I look forward to being lasood by randoms now!!

The game is fun until xxFVkMExx  & xxFVkYUxx show up shooting, dying, and re-shooting to no end. No point to it, just kill-die, kill-die. And waste bullets. Nobody wins anything, nobody gains anything. I finally turn away to mind my own business in the snowy mountains to hunt & fish...and xxKILLDIExx starts stalking me. Really? 

 

Other times though -- usually in the middle of the night -- I find a lobby full of happier, friendlier people out there minding their own business. You can tell the difference by how much slower the dots are moving around the map lol.

I like a bit of free roam killing, though, no doubt about that. Especially with the slow pace of this game, taking part in a feud can be very refreshing and gets the stale blood pumping again.

 

That said, I almost never attack people for no reason, and I never seek out people just to shoot at them. And if it’s obvious that it’s someone who doesn’t want a fight, I just let them run away. But whoever kills me first is in for a difficult time..

Ran into some idiots for the first time last night.

Of course the guy shooting me in the back, or off my horse, or while I am in the map is never in any PvP series.

Because there people are actually going to fire back from the get go. As it should be.

 

I will definitely be carrying a shotgun now...

As a general rule I live and let live, but I ain't no easy mark. I can hold my own in a fight and if I see someone suspiciously moving toward me I'll adjust my course in such a way that their following me is a strong sign of ill intent. If so, I blast with no qualms.

 

Aside from that I usually only aggressively attack people who have opted in for PvP, either by initiating a free roam mission or just being part of a pointless free roam war.

 

But every so often, quite rarely really, some evil stirs within and some possibly innocent rando in my vicinty turns up dead, just because I can... 

 

What's with the thug talk? Lmao

I think shooting people for no reason in free roam is dumb. Its a waste of money and no reward. I have had people run up to me and shoot me for no reason and then when I start to fight back they leave the server. Actually pretty much most people who run up and shoot me do that. Its like these people dont want a fight, they dont want to play the game so what do they want to do? Just annoy people I guess.

😂 bonedurmom. At 31 you’d think that wouldn’t make me laugh, but hearing a bunch of 14 year olds say it never fails making me lol. My nephews name was meterstickdick, and yes, he was a dbag online. Maybe your stereotypes have some truth to em. Still funny.

So if you saw Pocket Fox, you'd shoot her first? Just because of "x" in name. 😂

I don't know how most of these asshats are so BAD.

 

I mean, if you're going to grief someone, best be good at it. Multiple times last night I had some (I'm assuming kid, or elderly stroke patient) run up on me and open fire. Not kill me, mind. Because even with the strongest auto-aim I've ever seen, they still couldn't hit my vitals??? I'm picking herbs - bang... bang... bang - pull out gun - bang - aim - bang - fire off a single round into their head and go on my way.

 

Most of them stay away from me after that or even leave the session. But this one masochist just kept coming back for more punishment. I never once fired first. He never once killed me. Mind you, I'M NOT ANY GOOD (at pvp anyway)! If *I* am schooling you, you suck out loud.

 

But the ultimate winner from last night is the guy who actually killed me. As I was spawning in from a mission. And it took him 4 shots from a bolt-action (I actually thought I might get away). Then sends me a message like "G3t wr3ck3d!" LOL? It took you 4 shots from one of the best guns in the game with AUTO-AIM!!! And I wasn't even fighting back. Yup. You are a god. Get your tissues and Jergen's ready.

If I see somebody heading for me on the map, or trying to close the distance when I'm on a horse, my first assumption is griefer. And I'd say 70% of the time, I've been right. So yeah... I shoot before getting shot. Bring back friendly lobbies.

People who grief other players, especially if they deliberately pelt ruin, should be named and shamed on a forum so that we can all keep our distance.  Forewarned is forearmed.

This is the only thing wrong with Online...people shouldn't be scared of or avoiding shooting it out with other players.

 

It's literally one of the only things to do in Free Roam.

But there are other thins to do in online, if i wanted to shoot people all the time i'd load up battlefield. 

 

was browsing catalog yesterday, guy comes up lassos me, i break free, kill the wimp and get on, here he comes again, bam ,bye, switch session, get jumped by a 7 man posse,lost the pelts, shoot 3 of those, ride to town nearby: another lasso, wait untill he puts me on the horse, break free, and killed him. switch session.

 

i was trying to buy a hat ffs. had to kill at least 14 #mustkillallthetime wankers to even get it. so no, if you want killing, then at least have the balls to search someone who puts up a fight instead of all these lame tactics.

It's literally not.

 

And people aren't scared of shoot outs, some people just don't appreciate it when they're busy doing other things.

Ok. I'll bite.

 

"If you dont want to get killed you have to get better"

 

That's actually the mindset of the people who do it. They think getting a cheap kill on someone fishing, who can't see you coming and have no weapon equipped, or popping someone in the back of the head while browsing for a hat in the catalogue makes them some kind of god.

Yep!

 

Had one today follow me and every time I lassoed a deer he'd bolt in. Until I released it and pulled my rifle out, then he'd run away. Got tired of his crap so chased him down, killed him 5 times until he chose parley. His friend came in to join the fight, killed him until he requested parley. Their camp was exactly beside my hunting ground and they spent me nasty text messages. So I rode into their camp and started chucking dynamite to constantly knock them on their ass. Then they left.

 

Like, I will never grief or coward kill. But if you want to start it or try me... I will heckin go there!
