Or you could, you know, just leave them alone?

 

I mean, I don't condone glitching or anything and I agree that it's unwise to got AFK in a public lobby (even more when exploiting an obvious glitch) but they're not hurting anyone but themselves with an eventual money wipe, so why be a dick to them too?

 

If anything, widespread glitches like this shows how the grind has become at such point that people would rather not actively play the game to make some GTAbucks.

I DO tend to agree with what you are saying but also the game has just become a free for all.. and while sometimes annoying it is also the beauty of the game. There are many things to do, but maybe would be good if there was an easier way of socialising online with like minded people.

A problem for me and many people is that the grinding is just not always possible what with work etc.. there is too much work involved for too little reward. Even glitches can be long hard work I don't have time for learning and doing. I have had to purchase quite a few sharks over the years. I feel like the glitches reward the very people who probably have all the time in the world to grind anyway.

They're filling sessions with non-playing players.  There were 8 people in the Devin Weston hangar when I was playing yesterday.  If they weren't so self-centred (or stupid AF) then they'd be in private sessions.  Me doing whatever I want when I'm actually playing the game is perfectly alright.  It's them that are in the wrong.

 

You play how you want and I'll play how I want.  Let's not pretend that either of us is "a dick" because of our actions in a computer game.

I'm new to dealing with the tryhard community and it looks like some of them run to their Duke O Death when they have lost their urge to fight. I scored a Bandito kill on a MK. II griefer who happened to be the reddest dot in the session. Someone else shot him out of the sky for me, lol.

 

He called in his DoD, drove around in passive mode and would come out for easy kills. 

 

Anyway, I managed to time it right to land on his roof and detonate my RC Bandito, just to annoy him. He left when I did it. Is there any chance the explosion killed him and he left to avoid getting killed again? 

 

It might not register for him but if that killed him it would register on your screen even if he left. That's why you hear tryhards argue over screenshots. 

 

Most jump on the oppressor mkll. Some run to the duke, some run to the nightshark, some the insurgent, some hide in their facility for hours, lol.

 

He most likely realized he had a rc car stalking him and it's a matter of time before he gets killed again. He didn't want to deal with that so he left.

 

Last night I had to jump off the pier because I heard a RC car coming. The stress is real lol, called a dingy and went to my yacht to chill.

Jeeze, find something more important to get upset about. Just a joke little buddy.

 

I've read about a few people requesting the RC and getting stuck in the static - finally happened to me. So lame!

I’m in an invite only rn, and have obtained one of these miniature automobiles through... “different” means...

 

its interesting, although the bodies just make me want R* to add in a sandrail with multiple body panels, or yet another monster truck, but one that’s got changeable bodies...

 

thing is actually was faster than than I thought it would be, too. Nice.

Anyone still enjoying their RC Banditos?

 

I am, lol. I'm still developing my own personal code of conduct for it. I do try to be heroic, as Happy Hunter likes to say.

I didn't kill this guy. I didn't like his rebreather, but the rest of his outfit was OK. He was cool when he saw it and didn't try to attack.

I got to detonate my RC Bandito under Beyonce's Fat Ass recently. Hey, she/he chose that name, not me, lol.

My first RC kill was a MkII Oppresser douche nozzle, terrorizing the lobby... I bided my time for the perfect attack...

 

Did I do it right?

This is just about the only thing I do on the game anymore. Says a lot about both how good the car is, and how much of a grind they've made everything else. Even free mode PvP feels like a grind now, in vehicles I like, like my Hunter.

 

Sit climbing above broomstick for 10-15 minutes, eventually a barrage connects. They get another. That one goes. Orbital cannon. It's just slow, tiresome, more effort than it's worth - especially when you know the person or whatever it is on the other end probably can barely speak or think. RC Bandito skips a lot of the crap, and is actually enjoyable to use. Pisses them off like nothing else too. I hope more like it releases.

This thing really does give you a whole different experience than anything else in game, I love it. Here are some pictures of mine along with my Slamvan I replicated with it.

Haha me too. I want remote control planes, RC helicopters, RC amphibious hovercraft, RC spider drones and more!

 

I don't use the Bandito all the time, but it's an amazing "push in case of emergency" button. The second an MKII griefer starts attacking me, poof and I disappear into Bandito mode lol.

 

Best thing is, the griefers, who use every disgusting tactic in the book like EWO, passive popping and MKII insta spawning dare to complain that the Bandito is a cheap and unfair tactic.  This is after they've decided to pick a fight.  Go cry somewhere else.

I've been doing nothing but BVP since Feb. 1st.

 

I need to check my stats, but I should be getting close to having 500 kills with it. There's no in-game stat for the RC Bandito, as far as I know. I just know how many kills I had on both of my accounts before i started using it.

 

Edit: I added them up on both accounts. 574 RC Bandito kills, lol.

Look above the explosion. :) He was AFK and standing on a sign.

I was going after a bounty, and apparently so was another person. Difference was, I was in my RC! I totally beat him to the kill, possibly only by a millisecond! Lmao!

 

 

 

Edit: I didn't even realize it was a $9,000 bounty til I watched the video. Haha

I was chasing a player with a bounty with my RC Bandito earlier today and when I caught up with him, I see him riding on the train. :O

 

I luckily make the jump onto the train a few flatbed cars back, jumped two cars closer to him, then he came to me blasting away with his pistol. He was just a rank 14. I claim the $7,000 bounty and gave it back to him.

 

I was on the phone with my wife while all of this was going on. I spazzed and forgot to save the video. :(  I'll probably never be lucky enough to have a chase like that again.
