I hope it wasn't a mistake, as griefers use this method to kill people in passive mode. Even with the insurance penalty for killing people in passive mode I've been killed repeatedly by people using a fire truck.

They just need to send passive players into a different session. Don't take away gameplay to stop griefers, otherwise they might as well take the weapons out of the game.

Or.... make it so the water spray doesn't kill people...

Isn't the 'fall' causing damage? Or is it really the water spray?

it is not griefing when they kill repeatedly then you kill them back they go passive and just wait to get back to kill you, i will usualy kill them til they quit the session as i gave up leaving them alone they just come right back either with another tank, bringing a tank or just kill you with the jet again

what a load of rubbish, if you cannot escape abit of water your playing the wrong game.. I dont understand how rockstar thinks this is worse than a tank? honestly.. if its such a big deal then just make it so the water doesn't kill people on passive mode, just like tank rockets dont.. imo get ride of passive mode! make a separate lobby for thos children who think gta isnt about guns, violence and gang wars..

this guy gets it.

most of the people that i see in passive mode are the ones who have just had their tank blown up. it's the same crap everyday you log on. someone gets a tank, terrorizes other players in the session, then when they get blown up they either go passive to try to get another tank or leave the lobby. if the do decide to stay, then they deserve whatever they get.

I very rarely get this... the only time ill get a tank is if someone else has one first.. then they wont get another.. fight fire with fire..

But in all fairness ive never had a problem with the fire truck you get the occasional person who will hose you down but in my experience its never been a grief-er just another way to get a kill.. i hate how much rockstar are removing from there game because kids be crying! if your in a lobby and carnt hack it find another lobby other players shouldn't have there game pulled apart because of the few people who complain..

Remember those have something to complain about will complain those who happy with how things are will keep playing without question.. Its the people who dont have a problem who get punished when all the cry babies complain.

you're okay with me then, because i only get my tank when there's another tank on the map. i'd much rather go gun vs gun, but i'll usually end up getting the advantage on most players. if i don't then someone else in my crew will get the upper hand. at that point tanks come out. when they do i don't hesitate to get my tank. once your tank is gone, the crew usually tells how many times the tank griefer killed them. whatever that number is, you're getting that number of deaths, plus 5. if you talk trash or call me the N word, then you're gonna get my full and undivided attention until you dashboard.

Exactly this is how gta is! dont start a fight with anyone if you cannot finish it.. thats why i hate it when rockstar remove stuff because it isnt everyone who has a problem with it its only the minority who have a problem because they carnt hack it... I wouldnt mind but theres nothing hard about gta.

Balls tingled, was hoping for this to be a hint towards mercenary/taxi/ambulance/firetruck mechanics being added.

one thing that really isn't in gta which would solve the headaches of many, is a just middle system, which stop the .., wars out there, one tank was coming to lsc near the 400k apt/tinsel towers, so me and my friends/crew, took theirs out, to get them to leave, and stop griefing, but they called in their rest of the crew(12 tanks/jets vs 4 on foot/random tank) though kills still went in, it shouldn't escalate to pointlessness,
as for firetrucks, they still work with me ,and my friends, though at very least it shouldn't be a one time, knock down, and have no effect after, (unless the mental state handles all of it)

As long as they're going to keep this absurd passive (pacifist) mode system, I'm all for separating passive and non-passive players into their own sessions. The current system programs people to shoot first and (not even bother to) ask question later, since you can be killed any time, almost any place, by anybody. Why they chose to make it so that people in Passive mode can be killed while driving a vehicle is beyond comprehension. If people want to kill each other, great, have a mode where people can kill each other any time and any place. If people want to be left alone to meet new people and just have fun together, whether it's terrorizing cops (which they can't do with stupid Passive mode since it disables weapons), or cruising around town, give them a mode or a lobby so they can be left alone. The current system is and has been completely ridiculous since day one, but clearly Rockstar has no intentions of changing anything. Biggest failing of GTA Online imo.

most times its a good way to kill passive mode players that just lost there tank but a session i was in last night had 6 crew members single me out, once i saw 3 of them in tanks i went into passive mode because whats the point in trying to fight that, the other were 3 in cars, i managed to get away but not up a building so they got a fire engine and if that did have the water in it i was dead and right in the middle of nowhere so it certainly worked in my favour last night because they couldnt kill me with water
