Player Assassination Stranger Missions

Exact same thing happened to me camped in the Cumberland Forest, led them to Chez Porter and held out till they failed the mission. Its annoying that it can happen while you are at camp, but your white flag protection will not help you, so you are best to take off and head somewhere you can defend yourself.

So, I was sitting in camp yesterday morning and all of the sudden I am a the target of an assassination mission.  It was a posse of 4 against little old me by my lonesome. I hopped on my horse and road to the hills to get away.  I was in camp with my white flag up so I was surprised I was a target.  Anyone know if camp will protect you from harm like it normally would?  I wasn't sticking around to find out the hard way.  I made that posse chase me across map.  

No camp will not protect you during player assassination. That's the only time it does not protect you. I had one of these missions and the target was cooking his meat and I was able to complete the mission.

The camp never protects you. Other players can snipe you from far away no matter where you put your white flag.

Yep. Seen a video of this. Damned if i can find it now but this is a thing apparently. The one I saw, the guy was camped in the desert south of Tumbleweed. Someone was camped on a cliff wasting him with the Carcano.

I did it myself with a springfield. I know its morally questionable but the guy was a griefing lowlevel scumbag

Yeah, it must be a bug of some sort. I was thinking you could only do it with the Carcano.

The RAGE engine gets pretty f*cky over long distances. Short distances too. And medium distances can be hit or miss at times. Basically, nobody is in control and everyone is freaking out all the time.

Rockstar's games always get fickle when it comes to long distance interactions. Like in Gta Online, you could snipe players through buildings if they were a certain distance away. Worse yet if you are using a Chernobog and you lock onto a distant target, the missiles will actually travel through buildings, mountains, and other obstacles to hit its target. Whats going on here is most likely a similar issue where certain things are not functioning as they should cause of the enemy player being so far away.

So it's basically the same glitchy nonsense that allows explosive sniping through buildings in GTAO.

 

Oh R*, smh.

Being in camp wont protect you, The first assassination put on me way back at start and i wasn't even aware what it was till i was shot dead whilst in camp, Ive had probably 30 plus assignation on me know and and escape all but that 1st one and the last one yesterday, as i was on my white Arabian with the stats/cores bug i had a fair lead lead but horse just get up to speed and stamina died vert fast Didn't have a chance as a posse came down on me but they didn't win as my posse leaders horse was well and he escaped

I got a assassination mission on me. I doped my Turkoman and ran circles around the entire map. Only to be awarded $7 and a few gold nuggets. Next time I jump ship to another session.

I've run a few times when it was me against a posse of 3-4.  I've battled it out other times.  The first time I became a target it was on the first day I played, I panicked and jumped lobbies. I felt bad afterwards for taking $ out of that posse's pocket so the next time I got targeted by a different posse I waited for them.  Got a couple kills in before they got me and then they went on their way.  I've had fun being the target, or defending friends who were the target.  Surprisingly not one instance has turned into a war, once over everybody seems to move on(so far).

 

I have avoided accepting the missions because I am usually by myself.  The one time I did accept, I was near McFarland Ranch and the target was between Blackwater and Thieves Landing.  I turned on my mic and asked "So how do you want to do this?  Do you want to have a good ol' fashion shoot out and go our separate ways after? or Would you prefer to run?  I'll respect your choice..."  Waiting for a reply and watching them on the map they left the lobby, oh well.
