I've always wondered why the buzzard's homing missiles don't lock on to other players. That would level the playing field a bit...

I mean, don't get me wrong, I don;t think Buzzards should ruin everyone's day... but I'm basically a big hot target if I ever want to go weapons hot in free-roam. An easy, easy target.

It really sucks in my opinion. It actually takes a little practice and skill to kill people with the Buzzard and now it's way too easy to shoot down. It doesn't even seem like you can dodge the surface to air missiles. If you can it is much more difficult than dodging missiles from other Buzzards or Lazers.

Yeah, any helicopter is just a straight free kill now. I'll actually stop my car and get out just to lock on and get free candy.

We were missioning last night and did one of the "endless waves of cops" missions. I was using the AV launcher against the incoming helicopters, and it probably would have been easier to hit them with the grenade launcher at the range they were at (50 - 75 ft or so). I had to fire 2-4 times per helicopter.

So NPCs in police choppers can definitely dodge the rockets at close range.

haha, wow. After I logged out, Buzzard Pubbie kept trying to convince me they were right. For reference, I replied with "lol" to his first text, which spawned this:

quote:

Really, think about it. The buzzard is a no risk play, why even play with others? Can do the whole mission alone. Didnt u notice you were the only 1 in 1? Whats the point to finish fast? less money?

and then,

quote:

any fool can get kills with a buzzard in a coop mission, who can't... doing a mission without it though = more money and more rp, and not stealing kills from others with a noob tool, half the team just quit playing when we saw you in that buzzard...

Not actually true (only he did) ... but who's counting, right?

Blista Compact. On paper it has identical stats to the Issi, but the Issi has real problems cornering at high speeds because it's rear end end has no weight on it and it swings out and loses traction far easier than the Blista.

I'm about to buy the Raphodsy to try it.

So is there some kind of specific Blista I need? I grabbed the Dinka Blista Compact off the car store and the game calls it a Sports class vehicle despite having Compact in the drat name. Like do I have to find one in the wild? Because I kinda like this weird AE-86 Initial D looking car.

Yeah, this is correct. To my knowledge it's not sold in stores. I forgot they added the ambiguously named Dinka Blista Compact as well.

Yeah, I spent about 15 minutes roaming different sessions until I found one. I think I'll keep the Blista Compact as a toy car though, but I have no idea why the gently caress that thing qualifies for Sports class.

Granted, I was on a mission with some pubbies (the one where you get the homing device out of the Granger and then drive to the place where you hack the computer) and it was funny to watch two of the guys on the crew land their Buzzards twenty feet away from each other, parked on the ground and head-to-head just fire rockets at themselves while we waited for the guy hacking the terminal to finish.

It just looked so ridiculous and pointless, yet fun to watch.

Not the best thing, but the most hosed up thing. Friday, I still had the chat set to everyone and the first thing I heard was (this is nearly verbatim as it's seared into my memory)

Player 1) "You called me a pedophile, man, that's a really hosed up thing to call someone."

Player 2) "Would you rather me call you the 'n-word'?"

Player 1) "gently caress you, I'll tell you what I'm going to do. I'm going to come over to your house, drag your rear end out of the basement so you can watch me skull gently caress your mom as she chokes on my dick. Then, I'm going to bend her over the table and gently caress her until her rear end is bloody. And that's before I use my fist."

Player 3) "Dude, did you just threaten to surprise sex his mom? That's almost as bad as being a pedophile."

Player 1) "I told you, I don't surprise sex kids"

Player 3) "Yet you threaten to surprise sex moms..."

Player 1 leaves the session.

The casual lob made me giggle. It was like you were just tossing a newspaper.

I jumped on quick the other night to mess with the prox mines - managed to toss one in front of a person taxiing out of a hangar in a Titan or whatever that C-130 lookalike is called. He wasn't pleased.

I used to do this with stickies while watching from the relative safety of the nearby crane scaffolding. I've never done anything that made low-level pubbies rage quit faster.

One guy sounded pretty indignant about it, kind of like this fine police officer.

It's much more reminiscent of a neckbearded roided up bad sport storming away from a lost table top game than someone I should trust my life with.
