After almost a year of uncertainty Rockstar Games only recently lifted the lid on the upcoming Heists update for Grand Theft Auto Online but the latest information sheds some doubt on certain decisions.
The only random social interaction I got on GTA Online is my car being shot up whenever another player spots me.
Agreed. My cousin and I were just shopping and ended up in the middle of a 5 on 2 war that engulfed 4 city blocks and claimed countless lives.
GTA5 online feels awesome, looks good... but very unfinished and unfair.. people who randomly shoots other must be punished more somehow, Im tired that I cant get anywhere without a sick gunfight.. and also those Online Jobs, they work weird, sometimes lobby is full, but sometimes you cant find a single damn person to play with, for many hours.. very weird...
Use Passive mode. When you are in passive mode, if you are in your car, they cannot destroy it.
Yeah and then they will end up targeting you instead since your vulnerable to damage even in passive mode inside a car. It's fair since you can still run people over but annoying as sh*t when your just cruising.
Wait what? No. If you are in Passive mode, you are "ghostly". They cannot harm you and you cannot harm them. I have had people throw rockets at me, C4, etc, and they have never ever killed me while I'm sitting in my (owned) car while in passive mode. If you exit your car, the car can be destroyed, but you are still "unkillable" while in passive mode Also I have my car set up so that only friends and crew members can use it.
Not sure why the disagree.. Passive mode now make you a ghost and the car you drive. I do remember on old gen it was easy to abuse passive mode users. I dont kmow if thats a new gen feature lol
@Superblur I'm sure its a couple of haters (i know almost for sure that one of them is a Nintendo Fanboy) It basically hits the disagree button almost as soon as i post anything. I don't care about the agrees or disagrees, I care about the conversation in the comments.
I had an awesome, 6 player snowball fight at the top of the big mountain. Then the 7th player flew in with the attack chopper and decided it'd be fun to kill everone and get free kills. Thank god for the new-ish mentality system so we knew he was coming. He shot first but we ended up killing him over and over, around 15 times until he left. Probably didn't learn his lesson but whatever, was fun. Yes, the community in GTA Online is pretty bad but there's a lot of people that you can have fun with too
This site is giving me a malware warning.
Everything linking from N4G says it's got malware for some reason... Every site I've tried to go on at least, even ones I've been to before.
I remember when I accessed N4G on my computer and when clicking links it would open up a suspicious pop-up, which led me to think it was a problem with my computer. Turns out when I used it on different computers the problem persists so I thought that's why this keeps on happening on several N4G links on Chrome recently.
Something is wrong with n4g's servers.
Are you kidding me?
the online is not that great anw + the kids in this are the worst community i found in a game so far this gen
I had a guy grab the objective on a mission then drive off with it in the wrong direction on purpose. He finished the mission after about 15 minutes, but definitely uncalled for. I play 'Invite Only' sessions then use quick job finder from the phone, don't do public free roam cause its pointless. This way you don't get people killing you or blowing up your vehicles. Well, unless you invite friends and they decide that their objective is to kill you, then your pretty much screwed.
that guy did that because the longer the mission goes on for the more money you get.
Not worth it though, I think we may have gotten like 21k instead of the normal 18k. We could have done the mission twice and made more instead of him waiting about 15 minutes before ending it. (Rooftop Rumble)
For me, random social interaction died when Xbox 360 released party chat. Ever since that, and on the current gen consoles, hardly anyone uses in game chat. Most the time it's like a barren wasteland, playing with people who may as well be bots. I wish more online games woUld force game chat.
Now that The Master Chief Collection works for most people, the lobbies in that are usually filled with people using mics. It's really hard to play a competitive game of Halo without communication. But yeah, you're right for the most part—I can hardly ever find people with mics on most of the other games out right now.
master milked collection will remain " for the most part " broken it is confirmed already
Oh that's good to hear, I haven't really played it much. After all the problems I lost motivation and other games got my attention.
Phoenix, you fanboys are so moronic to the point in which it's hard to believe. Why don't you piss off and go over-hype The Order and Bloodborne some more?
Haven't played gtaonline since it probably will be a disastrous experience for me. Basically get run down by car every two seconds. But this heist thing sounds interesting. And like many planned raids in mmo. It normally takes time and people like to choose people they trust. GTA not having a main hub will definitely make people with less friends have less chances of experiencing it.
you can create your own private lobby and join random open jobs from it and just make sure to back out each time a mission end (Press O or B at the voting for next job screen)
Do you consider being constantly attacked by other players as "random social interaction?"
