You can push people around without knocking them over. I found this guy standing idle and moved him closer to the street.

Nice Burrito, Wunder.. I went same with mine.. I went dark metal and retuned my van to be similar to my little critter..

My friend and I did a few more tests. Perhaps already mentioned in here and I overloooked it, but here it is:

It can't enter a cargobob cargospace, but it does enter a Titan's cargospace..

 

So next up we tried to get to max altitude to drop the little critter and see if it survives. but at the altitude of the Observatory, it decided to go out with a bang... My titan didn't like it and while it didn't explode completely, all motors went silent and I glided to my death...

 

Forgot to test if one can hook it up with a cargobob. I don't think it's p ossible, but that's something I like tested as well...

 

And on another note, is it possible to buy a second Bandito and if one can, is it also displayed at another table in the arena modshop?

Hehe yeah had a similar instance doing that with some PC mods a few weeks ago... a bit different though. This was the "get out of my garage" initiative:

Cool, some good tests.
I took it up to the game altitude limit via mods and dropped it upside-down with the rear digging in a bit (where most of the damage is done) and it survives. You can do that several times too - it's quite resistant. 

 

We tried a few times with the Cargobob - no dice I'm afraid. 

 

You can't own more than one RC Bandito, you'll be notified that you already unlocked the vehicle (like attempting to purchase a second Pegasus vehicle).

Thx Gaf,

 

This thing has so much potential (for fun).. Would be so nice to be able to hook it up with the Bob... It would really add so much new player/friend fun to the game. 

 

Anyone trying to hop into a Savage yet? Bombushka should be tested as well... I tried hiding inside those Youga Classic wrecks at Sandy Shores, but nop... Invisible wall.

Entering Ammunition, I got greeted by 'Imbecile' and the grey noise-screen, before respawning as my character. Shame, I wouldn't mind blowing that guy up a few times… I read somewhere that stores are off-limit too…

Initially, I regretted buying this thing since you can't resell it until I went on a police chase with it & had a 4 star wanted level. That was a blast. Going into a bunch of little nooks & crannies where they can't get to you & you can still f*ck with them. 

So in theory, is it possible to get a 5-star wanted level, then call in the Bandito, and then drive away, leading the agitated 5-star police to say an area where a group of tryhards are battling it out?

I'm really tempted to get one of these, but I just can't justify the price at the moment(mainly because I spent over $5 mil since the last update on the Mad Max vehicles and muscle cars and still intend to buy the Deviant and Vamos when they release, so I guess the RC Bandito will sit on the backburner for a while.

Personally I think you're missing out. Personal RC gives no advantage, apart higher hopping perhaps in racing, it's cut out of use for (certain) missions and when you're not the griefing kind of player (neither am I btw), it has not much practical use. BUT, it adds a new dimension to this game. Everything else is scaled up and here you are riding in this little (fast) vehicule, exploring the GTA-map all over again. I'm constantly thinking if I could use my Bandito to do certain things. So in that area, it really adds something.

 

And TBH, I don't think Rockstar will leave this critter as is. I'm pretty sure they'll expand on it. Why not give extra skins, a special RC-garage, in the (near or further) future… I'm convinced they will, as it will give them more and new ways to sell their sharkcards. Personally I'm not as stoked anymore (as I used to), when a new super hits the Streets of LS. It's more of the same, perhaps a lil better here, or there (or worse), but in general it's just same ol same ol. But RC-cars, while (momentarily) limited to buggies and a van and one single 'garagespot', are something new. I was very stoked when  I first rode it down the street and that hasn't stopped...

 

Yesterday I saw a player strand his tugboat at paleto bay. I went over to greet him in my lil RC. Drove a few circles around his feet and went on my merry way (could have blown him up, but that's not me). He was surprised and didn't even fire a single shot at me. So save up, and spent it on this.. I

 

Ah well, I'm a fan, you can tell…Carry on.. 🙂

Theres a glitch that makes it a personal vehicle so theoretically you could have two. Not sure if that PV version has off-radar tho. Probably not.

I love this thing! And I know a lot of people think this thing will be used as a trolling or griefing tool, which I'm sure may happen, but to me I find it a counter to griefing! Anytime I see a threat heading my way I instantly switch to my RC and safely tuck myself away! It's an instant way to hide without having to resort to warping back to the apartment or going into passive mode.  It's also an amazing spy tool, to scope out an area in case of threats, traps etc.  It's everything the Drone should have been.

 

Yesterday a group of tryhards were EWOing over and over again because they no doubt kept hearing the high pitched whine of my RC lol. It was hilarious cos they kept dropping dead in the street or at the wheel of their cars, without me doing anything at all! Eventually they clubbed together and kicked me from the session lol.

 

Great fun, and definitely more an anti-griefer tool in my opinion.

Hey Happy, 

 

why don't you open up a new poll to Rockstar to ask them to expand this? I know you had a huge part in bringing in the Hunter, so why not do the same for this..

 

Oh man, I haven't even thought about that… Imagine having a small Heli to fly around town, ehhe… Or a small Hydra/Lazer... Don't even care if it's armed or not, just small..LOL... Oh man... Imagine how you could hone your flying skills with a smaller version… I would be flying all day long I think… First thing that comes to my mind, is flying a mini-hydra/Lazer fullthrottle through the sewers… 🙂 ow yeah...

 

I definitely sign that Poll or ticket at Rockstar-support again… 🙂

I have a new purpose in life.

 

 

Edit: And yeah, this thing is getting a map icon. I give it until the next update. It’s wayyy too much fun in its current off the radar state. Can’t have too much fun unless it’s arial missile spam cargo griefing now can we?

Damn!! I love my car collection but I'm gonna put this out there and say this is the best $2M I ever spent.

I would most definitely have several as they are, and whole garages full if they had more options, and we had more space, and if R* made this possible.

Yeah that's a fair point, however I was under the impression that you couldn't already own the RC Bandito in order to do that glitch? 
There's also the possibility of it messing up the game preventing you from buying an actual Inventory model of the Bandito with the perks and features - saw one case of that on PC. 

 

Under normal circumstances, you can't own more than one.

I enjoy your vids man but in this case I think that you're missing the forest for the trees.

 

The RC Bandito is not overpowered because it's slow or because can be countered (which is a bad argument on itself, like claiming that the Oppresor Mk II is not OP because it can be beaten), the RC Bandito is overpowered because:

 

- Unlike the Terrorbyte Drone, it has unlimited range.

- It has a very short cooldown (1 minute), which means that it can be spammed.

- Not only it gives you unlimited Off the Radar, it literally despawns your character from the map, which means that as long as you're controlling the RC Bandito, you're pretty much invulnerable. At least you can kill an Akula if you manage to catch it.

- It explodes way faster than the Drone and it's a way more powerful explosion too (like double the damage of an RPG round)

- It has way more armor than it should, I mean, this thing can tank three rockets.

 

This thing may not be as overpowered as the Oppresors, all vehicles with R2K missiles and jets with Explosive Cannons, but it's quite OP on its own right.

 

I'm afraid that your video may be slightly biased, just because the RC Bandito fits perfectly into your playstyle doesn't mean that it's not OP.

It's a horrible waste of money to do so (especially since it's not even a kill), but the orbital cannon can track the Bandito.

Oh yes, I can confirm this does indeed work like a charm.

 

1. Get a high wanted level (fly over army base is the quickest)

2. Head near to area of tryhard infestation

3. Land and unleash Bandito

4. Lead angry cops and choppers to tryhard infestation epicentre

5. Drive around in circles and watch the mayhem

 

So much fun!  Earlier, a random had gone into Benny's, so I lead a pack of riot officers outside.  When he came out, he was looking around in utter confusion wondering why the area was swarming with cops with the night filled with blue and red flashing lights lol.

Ok so out last night exploring in the bandito.. going in the back of houses, looking around gardens, making sure not to fall in swimming pools.

I go into this one house and go around back, and this is what I see...

Is this normal, or is this Bandito Vision

Lol amazing. What about joining an organization and then dropping the RC and having the CEO start Most Wanted? Or will it immediately teleport you out of the RC? Maybe it gives a warning that you’re not in an appropriate vehicle.

Get outside, open your Interaction Menu, go the Inventory tab and the option "Request RC Bandito" is at the bottom.

Hmm you know I'm not sure. I know you can't use this thing during missions which sucks but not sure if you're in the RC and your CEO starts it instead of you!

Wow, this thing gets better and better!

 

To test out something for a laugh, I went and got my 4 star wanted level, then headed to a blip on the map.  He was in a shop, happily trying on clothes, so I lead all the salty police officers to the location.  The shopper's car was parked outside, so I parked alongside it (couldn't get under it as it had low clearance) and sure enough, the officers all vented their misdirected rage at the parked car, unleashing a hail of insults and bullets at it.  The guy in the shop had no idea what was going on lol.  I've realised that the police don't directly target the Bandito - but the area just above it, so most of their shots miss.  But if you're parked near a car, the bullets will hit that or other objects instead.

 

Eventually, the car caught fire and was destroyed, and the guy came outside in confusion and then ran off.  

 

This thing is hilarious!

I freaking LOVE this thing! Ever since it came out, I've been spending the vast majority of my time in it. I'm usually a very friendly player, but I have done a fair bit of trolling with it. I never, ever go after anyone's cargo or business related stuff, though. 

 

One of my favorite things to do is just follow people around and see what everyone is up to. Most people freak out the moment they see it, it's hilarious. I also like getting a wanted level and following people around. I also like taking it to the skate park, and doing various stunts with it there, as well as elsewhere. I spend most of my time stunting in general. 

 

I also think the RC Bandito could make EWO obsolete for those who own it. Why kill yourself when you can just turn yourself into an RC car and scurry away? Escaping death has never been so easy, excluding passive mode of course.

I definitely want a whole host of RC vehicles. It's something I didn't even realise until this released. I don't know if it's too late in the game for a big helisexuality sized push for it, but at the very least I'm gonna make a video and start bringing going it up in others more.

I'm afraid that your video may be slightly biased, just because the RC Bandito fits perfectly into your playstyle doesn't mean that it's not OP.

I am biased yes - not only because I like the little vehicles, but also I'm not on foot much (which is really only where it's tough to beat).

 

Still, this has downsides over drones - so it's only natural it has some bonuses. It's so much bigger and louder. Drones are borderline invisible, whereas these aren't too hard to spot, especially if someone's tried it once and you're expecting them. Then you have the fact it can be locked on - a huge downside over the drone. The armour might be unrealistic, but it would be pretty easy to deal with if it didn't have it.

 

It is too readily available I guess. But then so are so many other things. Why not start with them, then this? Someone using this causes much less harm than a broomstick. At most, they kill someone once. 

 

If someone attacks me, then uses this to dodge a revenge kill or try get me again - I can honestly say I haven't had much trouble off it. I just stick around where they became a car, usually in a Buzzard or something - eventually they get bored and go after someone else, then I get them as they spawn back in.

 

It might not be textbook balance, but it's a lot better than a good amount of stuff in the game, in my opinion. If anything has stuff done to it, there's a ton of other vehicles that should easily take priority over this.

I once did that with a drone. I didn't think to do that with this though, gonna have to try it now. Just getting a ton of cops to irritate people in gun fights could be very useful.
