    The Legend 9 symbol should be Legend 10 symbol and vice versa

    First time i came online i was getting headshotted by numerous hackers so ill just keep quite and say i missed this...

      R*, I suggest you to raise the xp in free aim to 50% and in hardcore to 100%. Maybe you can put 2 trophys for the hunters in the next title update, like 200 Kills in free aim and 100 in hardcore. Just an idea. Cheers

      I think some of us are still getting 50 per kill and not the extra 20%.

      @ferguson99

      I'm with you bro. I play only whenever I have time. I'm a married guy so I try to balance everything I can. Regarding aiming I'm a soft lock kind of guy I just want to get the job done so I can rank up faster. Now free aiming I am willing to give it a try so why not that is why its available.

        Ok what if I put 10???

          R* why no hardcore soft lock?!
          • ferguson99on July 10 2012, 11:14amReplyFlag
            Theres still plenty of us that like aim assist soft lock because we are part time gamers and don't spend 24 hours sat in front of a T.V. constantly playing video games.

            It seems like nobody wants to play free aim in this game,really sad.Rarelly i see more than 125 people on GW or TDM in all day...wtf is going on?

            • Kuya_Edon July 10 2012, 2:18amReplyFlag
              May I ask someone , for free aim what is the control setting or sensitivity when using this? I like to know that way i can give this a try.

              Are the connection problems in PC being looked into? (ie: loading screen hangups)

                Hey I noticed that after the double xp weekend, which was clutch by the way, the free aim is giving 50 xp per kill again. It probably needs to be readjusted.

                  @jpgusto84 Good to hear you enjoyed the weekend and thanks for the heads up: we are looking into it.

                R* - I can barely find a game with other players, I always end up in empty lobbies. Lots of my friends also have this problem, not only me. I tried everything here:

                http://support.rockstargames.com/entries/21423582-max-payne-3-connection-problems-losing-connection-to-online-games-empty-lobbies

                I have all ports opened, firewall, antivirus protection etc everything is disabled. I also tried enabling/disabling uPnP, doesn't work.

                I've already sent a ticket to Support, #366489, could you please have a look?

                  i never understood the difference between soft lock and free aim;pp

                    @minios97 Soft Lock means that your aiming reticule will lock on to an enemy when you aim, whereas in Free Aim it doesn't. Hope that helps

                  why not take off target traking and target slow down for free aiming lobbies that way people struggle more and it's actually free aim.

                    Just a couple of questions even if somewhat off topic:

                    - when betting what is an Upstart ????

                    - what do you get for going legend - in RDR you got a new mount - anything like that ????

                        Aaah. That was an awesome weekend. Hardcore free aim all the way from 50 to legend 1 rank 35 !
                        Thank you R*!

                        Rockstar I hope that you guys are aware that the grenades in this game can kill you through walls. I hate It when I die by a grenade that is on the floor above me. Please read this and try to to fix the problem.

                          1. ANYONE WHO IS PLAYING MP3 SHOULD BE IN THE FREE AIM LOBBY.

                          its up to the person no u.. u may like free aim some dont i play both + hardcore

                          2. SOFT LOCK IS TRASH, HAHA, REALLY THO IT IS.

                          not for u to say you like free aim some like soft lock

                          3. SNIPER RIFLES ARE FINE THE WHEY THEY ARE.

                          ( is a joke 1 shot one kill even if its your hand most only play it cos it one shot one kill and dont matter where on the body they hit they dead i find trhis on other games also its a joke not just MP3 )

                          4. RPGS ARE FINE THE WAY THEY ARE. GRENADES ARE AWESOME.

                          RPGs cant really say GRENADES ok as is

                          5. IM FINISHED WITH ALOT OF THE GRINDS ALREADY. KIND OF A JOKE. ADD MORE OR MAKE THE COUNT HIGHER THAN A 1000.
                          ( good on you u must live on the game... )

                          5. ADD SOME STUFF ONLINE FOR PEOPLE HAVE LEGEND, NEW GEAR FOR AVATARS MAYBE? DIFFERNT COLOR TINTS TO ARE WEAPONS? SO THAT THE PLAYERS WHO HAVE BEEN LEGENDING STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD. EVERYONE LOOKS THE SAME. ANNOYING. IM SURE IM NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO AGREES.

                          ( i agree with this i find it no point in going legend not just MP3 other games also so this is not just aimed at MP3 u lose every thing even your cash it like starting all over again with no gains the badge i dont really see the point as u get the cash u want just from playing )

                          6. LETS SEE THOSE NEW MAPS THIS SUMMER

                          ( well we will see on that one lol its summer now right?? )
