Lord-Sam

lasso tackling needs to be counterable.

Recommended Posts

Lord-Sam

've been griefed by like 2 people that keep tackling me with a lasso and instantly tying me up.

 

You cannot counter this, there needs to be a counter.

 

I can every other melee tackle except lasso.

Just quickly equip your knife and you're free - it's tough to keep doing it though when 2 are doing it to you. I'd definitely kill them when I could.

That's only when they throw the lasso.

If they tackle you while holding a lasso you cannot break out of that like you could with a knife tackle.

Build up your stamina by running alot instead of riding until it's maxed. Then you'll fight better.

I guess the counter is not let them get so close?

Even a sawed off shotgun can deal with a guy charging you with a lasso. Took out two guys who tried that on me, one round for each of them from my sawed off put them down.

I took a pristine buck off one of their horses before I left. I walked away with the last laugh, as well as an extra ten dollars.

That doesn't f*cking work when they tackle you.

And you can't even attack them with a knife in close range because they just have to press circle once and you're instantly hogtied.

Whenever someone says "oh just shoot them with a shotgun" you're f*cking missing the point

Just don't let this situation occur. besides that there is no counter except pressing square to get free. 
I don't get all the b*tching about the lasso tackle. happened really rarely to me in the last month and haven't got any kind of problems with this mechanic. if someone manages to lasso me I break free instantly and shoot their asses. When they respawn I'll kill them relentlessly until they flee. 

 

I dunno but it seems to me that this is more of a low-rank problem. as above mentioned: max out your stamina, this will help when breaking free.

It's happening to me incredibly often now that people know you cannot break free from a lasso tackle.
 

I am level 58 I have sh*tloads of f*cking weapons.

IF someone tackles me to the ground with a lasso equipped I cannot resist it like I can with a knife tackle.

MY STAMINA IS MAXED OUT

you people aren't listening are you.


Lasso tackles instantly hogties someone, there is no struggle option.

It is the only melee tackle with a guaranteed success rate. It's OP

Yea so what. The second your hogtied you get the option to break free, the next second you‘re free. 

Work on your strategy, then you won‘t have a problem with it. They won‘t nerf lasso cause some dudes feel bullied by it.

Okay so you're clearly not getting it.

You tackle someone with a knife they have the option to resist and get back up.

You tackle someone with a lasso they do not have the option to resist and get back up. They get instantly hogtied.

This is the problem you should be able to f*cking resist to prevent getting hog tied.

It's not 'instant' but there certainly is no struggle option.

 

It is not OP, you can't shoot or do damage from afar and even after you hogtie someone they can choose to struggle or die.

 

What's OP is guns. You can shoot and kill at range and in melee if you win a tackle, smack to the head...enemy dead. So what's the point of a knife or melee weapon in tackling if it acts the same as a firearm, but can't shoot normally.

 

I don't know where you are being tackled all the time, but it's a total non-event in free roam where most engagements take place at long-medium ranges. In PvP modes, just don't hang around in close quarter areas.

 

Just because you can't adjust your strategy to a limited tactic, doesn't mean the gameplay should be altered. Ain't no one gonna tackle you if you stay further away and slam 7.62 rifle rounds into their skull or knock'em with .22 varmint troll accuracy.

 

Adapt.

Okay so hat perk, slippery bastard and zig zagging.

Should be no problem catching up with someone to lasso them.

I've done it myself.

Well mate... why use this mechanic on others if you think it‘s way too op and complain about others doing that on you? 

 

As said previously, adapt your strategy and you won‘t have a problem with this. Ofc it can happen if you don‘t pay attention and someone sneaks up to you, but overall I haven‘t been lasso-tackled in the last 30lvls or so. 

This game is all about avoiding critical situations. This is not gta, you actually are advised to play smartly.

I might as well abuse it as much as I can to create more people like me complaining about how OP it is.

It's going to be super OP in free aim lobbies.

I doubt you can auto-tackle in free-aim. If so, you‘re right. 

 

Your comment is like complaining about griefers when you‘re a griefer yourself.

I counter it very easily. Quit the game and restart it. I'm not having some creep hogtie me.

^^ I don't enjoy it either, and a day or so ago, got hogtied by some <expletive> who jumped me while I wrestled with my controller (a source of headache for me as a mouse and keyboard person).

 

He would have been blown to heck with my shotgun, but after being hogtied and dynamited, I was very tempted to just switch sessions.

 

The amount of butcher grief camping in St. Denis (butcher area especially), Blackwater, etc. is beyond pathetic. I've noticed more griefers now roaming areas looking for others to kill.

 

Even in Ambarino it's becoming difficult to get away from players and just peacefully do anything in this effing game.

I countered it one time somebody came and tackled me while I was attacking a gang hideout of all things. I spammed B(xbox) literally as soon as it happened and I had an animation where I scrambled and was able to avoid being tied up. I went to equip the shotgun but then his friend shot me. I would guess it may have to do with stamina because mine has been up for a while. I do a lot of running when I hunt on foot. I think they were surprised as well because they ran off even after killing me....seeing some responses maybe he didn't have a lasso and it was just a tackle to try and choke me. IDK good luck figuring it out I'm very cautious of other players in free roam though.
