Usually this would be a bullet point under the crew section but I wasn’t able to update the post last night due to Reddit not working. Future Crew Events will be listed that way.
Is the panther statue primary target for the Cayo perico heist still available to get?
No, its a special week event only, just like diamonds in the casino heist
Ive been out of the game for a while and now coming back.
Does the **AFK farming with Nightclub** and attached businesses still work... **on two characters?**
Basically i own almost everything on my main character and i remember that people mentioned that switching to the second one, spending millions there to buy that stuff and then idling. Would i make profit (untils to sell) on **both** characters while idling on either of them?
So that my second character does Nightclub stuff in the background, while im actually playing my main character. And every X hours i switch to the second one to get supplies, sell stock, then switch back to main. Is that still working?
Production's only going for the current character, so I'm afraid not.
P.S. note that the common AFK method of watching tv in a contact mission was disabled in the last DLC. Tho you can still walk in circles during a missions to avoid daily fees.
> Production's only going for the current character, so I'm afraid not.
Damn that sucks, but thanks for the info!
> P.S. note that the common AFK method of watching tv in a contact mission was disabled in the last DLC.
Hmm ive done exactly that tho in the last few days without any problems. Started contact mission, went to apartment, watched TV for hours. Didnt get kicked and nightclub was producing in the background. Maybe it only got changed for the console versions? Im playing on PC.
I'm on PC too. To be fair, I haven't AFKed myself in a very long time, but I got this info from multiple PSAs that flooded the sub when the DLC dropped. I'm not sure if it's a platform difference thing, but if this still works for you, then it's great :)
Are my friend and I the only ones who got screwed by the prize ride challenge? We both got 2/4 then it reset yesterday….
Happened to me over the weekend and I gave up - Futo GTX isn't worth the hassle to me.
Are there mod menus or maybe bugs that can subtly screw up cars in the freemode? My car that goes below 55s on the test track suddenly couldn't drive better than 1:00 due to very poor grip right after I lost a sprint race. Then I went to invite only and it drives 54 easily. Coincidence?
Framerate. Public tanks framerates especially on older/slower PC's.
When racing I run low enough settings so I can consistently hit 120~~Hz~~fps in a public session, then I have a consistent unfair advantage to people running 60.
Thanks, that must be the case bc I have 30 on a good day...
If your system is that bad try turning off shadows (it involves an ini file edit) as well as cranking down your settings - it might help get it nearer 60.
Does anyone know what clothes the valet outfit consists of? I know I can buy it as a whole outfit which I already have, but I'd like to know the individual parts, and I've only been able to find out the pants and shoes.
Why am I not getting rep anymore in the car meet? I have been coming to do the dailies each day just like I have been doing in the past and suddenly it’s not increasing anymore.
Yes, same for me today. I got rep for idling and buying merch but not for modding a car, using the test track etc.
Seemingly back to normal today though.
So it worked yesterday, I went to do it again today and no luck :/. Maybe it’s like a bug with the timer so you have to visit it outside of the 24hr time frame when you last visited it or else you have to wait again.
R* has been doing some background updates recently around Thursdays so hopefully, bcuz this isn’t normal lol.
I just started playing again and really pining for a good "story mode" experience. Cayo perico was fun but I need MOAR. I already have a moc and MC and nightclub from when I used to play... But I'm not sure how I can redo those missions. I should also note I mostly play solo.
Is there any way to do lamar missions and trevor's? Whenever I call ron I don't get anywhere.
Lamar's Lowrider missions, A superyacht life (you'll need a yatch 6m) or the casino penthouse missions (you'll need a casino penthouse 1.5m)
the Auto Shop contract robberies feel like a solo story mode. you can play them in Invite Only also and avoid griefers
The Nightclub can be sold solo, but you're gonna need another player if you'd also like to do MOC missions. MCs can be ran solo, but it's a total headache to deal with (I did this for an entire x2 week, idk how tf I'm still alive), so you better off focusing on your Bunker instead.
Do you happen to own a Terrorbyte too? If so, you could combine client jobs with other freemode activities- that was pretty common before people started focusing on the Casino Heist and then Cayo Perico. Also, do own a Vehicle Warehouse by any chance? Return of investment takes a while, but It's a great addition. Crate warehouses are kinda grindy, but if you want you could get one for a start just to experiment with the missions and to see if it's for you. Same goes to the Hangar tho it's way less profitable.
If you can't get missions when calling Ron, you should still be able to Trevor's [missions](https://gta.fandom.com/wiki/Trevor_Philips#Mission_Appearances) them through Pause > Online > Jobs. Same goes to [Lamar's](https://gta.fandom.com/wiki/Lamar_Davis#Lowriders)\- but for his missions make sure to check again the map, if you've restarted the missions already but haven't done the first one, it should be next to Benny's in the map.
If I wanted to complete the 50 heist finales challenge, does it count if I join other peoples heist finales? Apologies if this was a obvious easy answer.
The one for unlocking the chrome High End rims, right? If so, yes, no problem, can be done as a teammate.
How does the Emperor Vectre perform in Tuner Races? Better than the Calico?
When slammed it will be the fastest round most tracks, Calico still has great acceleration and higher top speed but the Vectre doesn't have the understeer that slows the Calico down when cornering.
Faster through turns, slower top speed. Check broughy1322 on Youtube for more details.
Yes, but only with the lowest suspension option.
Are there any tips to maximize gains from blackjack? I only started playing it recently and have been doing ok but I wanna do better.
Apparently Blacksheep on youtube (the GTA drifting guy who is no doubt having a field day with this DLC) used to be a casino worker and he has done videos on how to play blackjack. Search on YT
IDK about glitches, but this sheet has a couple nice guides: [https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1CVFnfMmHP8iBiQ3S1UhzxgHqr2QoKNE4ZDqup8XLxgQ/edit#gid=532418012](https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1CVFnfMmHP8iBiQ3S1UhzxgHqr2QoKNE4ZDqup8XLxgQ/edit#gid=532418012)
Remember, that the 4 decks are shuffled each hand, so you can't count cards. You can try to vary your bets to win big and lose small, but it's too random for that. Bet max, split, double, and win both hands for best payout.
I like to start small, then double my bet if I lose. Keep doubling until I win big to wipe out smaller losses, then bet small again. It's more of a strat to keep chips vs. win a ton. I also visit the register when I can to change cash into chips, or play the two slots with best payouts for a chance at the $2M+ jackpot.
Can we own 2 hangars at the same time?
Unfortunately, you can't.
I also have another question, do the plane modifications stay after you put the plane in the other compartiment i don’t remember the name
Storage, and yes all changes are saved
Ok thank you
My brother and I have been trying to complete the silent and sneaky Casino Heist finale for ages, but every time we get the "Not enough players" prompt before getting kicked from the heist. It's happened many times in the man trap, but also when trying to escape the cops. It is definitely not due to the internet connection, so what else could it be?
There's a solution for the man trap. Both of you need to walk into the man trap (keep walking until the objective changes/goes away) and stop. Wait for the next prompt and then proceed.
We actually managed to finish the heist tonight, so I guess it helped. Thanks, man.
Guys, very simple and stupid question that I don't even know how to Google properly. Do I have to be active as an MC leader for my counterfeit cash factory to produce? Say I switch to CEO for VIP work, or avoid organizations altogether to avoid fees, does that stall the production until I start my MC again?
Nope, just need to be online.
that's awesome, i usually avoided VIP work because of the hassle of switching back and forth.
good ol' nooby me. Tyvm!
You're welcome! There are a few specific circumstances where they don't, the most obvious one is when doing a resupply mission. I think also when you play something like a contact mission, during the loading screen they don't either. Also, if you happen to have two characters, then it only works for the one you are currently playing with online.
The contact missions one is a bit glitchy, "normally" the MC businesses, bunker and nightclub will accrue at the same speed as if you were just pootling around in freemode or whatever but sometimes they stall. Mostly, you should be ok and they'll accrue while you're helping Gerald et al out
Does anyone else have these weird transaction pending bugs when they try selling auto shop cars?
There's a trick you can do to get GTA to force communication with the server, and that's changing your glasses (or other accesories).
You should see the circle thing on the screen and if it doesn't say "SAVE SUCCESSFUL" or the circle thing goes away without a prompt after a couple of seconds at most, then either you or R* end have Internet problems
That's usually when either you are having internet issues, or R\* is. So they have a bit of a problem saving the money you earn. If you stay in gta until it says "SAVE SUCCESSFUL", you should be fine money wise.
Can I suspend the cociane, cash, and meth buisnesses?
Will it still fill up the nightclub cargo?
You can leave your MCs with no product and no supplies, but they have to be "active" (ie not shut down). Your nightclub techs will still make product
Nope, but you can keep them with 0 supplies/product to avoid raids. If daily fees are an issue you can join a new session before you register.
> Will it still fill up the nightclub cargo?
Yes, as long as the MC business is "running" (as in, active). Do what XarH said and keep them with 0 supplies and product. You'll have to pay daily fees though so make sure you're not registered as an MC if you don't want to pay MC business related fees. Same goes for CEO.
The various challenges (like the Stone Hatchet one) if you haven't done them already, they should get you a fair amount of the way there.
Assuming net take is 250ish k, 15%, 3x joining a casino heist (big con or aggressive approach) or cayo perico heist (full loot bags + drainage tunnel) both with 2 players. Elite challenge succes gives 100K extra per player with hard difficulty (easier with cayo perico than Casino heist) so eventually twice is enough. Or one cayo perico heist with 50% take and participating in all preparation missions.
Doing Cayo Perico runs. If you don't own a Kosatka sub yet, you could also join someone else's CP or Casino heist- preferably someone you know/someone from a dedicated sub like r/HeistTeams, since total-stranger hosts sometimes get lazy with the preps. If it's a friend you could also ask for a larger cut and return the favor when you're able to host your own heist.
There's a discount on offices right now , is there anything useful to buying paid offices compared to the free office I received through the enterprise pack?
They are totally identical in terms of what they offer. The only differences are derived from the location: exterior, access points and scenery. It's not gonna be that important unless you're grinding CEO crates or I/E solo without a Terrorbyte. I can't imagine that many people do that nowadays, but even then, as long as you have at least a Buzzard/Sparrow, this shouldn't even be an issue.
Anyone looking to trade wins for the prize ride challenge...
Anybody up for a Sprint race? I’m pretty sure we just have to win one a day (no idea if it’s 3 or 4, but R* decided to be vague for no reason).
It's three wins per day, for four days in a row... 12 total wins.
No, it's 3 wins over a 4 day consecutive period
Yes, that's been established. Hence the correction in my second comment immediately following the first.
That’s what I initially thought, but a friend and I traded one win yesterday and today and we’re both at 2/4.
I did some digging and R\* worded it incorrectly.
It's win one sprint race, over four consecutive days.
I've been racing since Friday. Won at least 2 races Fri, Sat and now Sun. I'm still at 1/4 since Friday. Any clue what might be wrong?
Edit: The "solution" was I won races Fri at 7 PM ET, then I won races Sat at 9PM ET and finally Sun at 1 PM ET. The GTA day resets for this at 8 PM ET, so I missed the window for getting credit and it reset back to 1. Rockstar was very unclear with these, hope this helps someone else.
Glad you solved it in time.
Typical R*. Everything resets at different times. Daily objectives, mental state, lucky wheel, prize ride challenges, weekly updates, etc.
regarding the prize ride challenge - when is it concidered a "new day"? Local time or usa time (around 11AM GMT+2 i believe)
midnight UTC, at least it was for the first week. it's different from the daily objectives and the weekly update.
Just want to check if afk'ing is still possible, or if it has changed during the tuners update, thanks =)
It's possible but it no longer seems to be possible in missions to bypass daily fees. Even if you watch TV or rubber band you get kicked after a while it seems.
Best solution for now seems to be to AFK in the LSCM space by coming back in from the test track and leaving it on the 'Enter LSCM' prompt - at least this way you get LSCM reputation as well, and a small amount of cash every time you rank up reputation - it can be almost 100K to start with over 24 IRL hours which can go some way towards offsetting what you lose by not being in missions, but it does go down over time since ranking up rep gets harder the higher you get. If you have an Arcade that will also rack up 50K every half an IRL day or so. Make sure you don't stay CEO or MC while AFKing - best solution to not have to remember to do that is to start a new Invite Only session at LSCM and AFK straight away.
Why should you not be a CEO while AFK?
Extra daily expenses
Ah ok thanks!
AFKing in the car meet is possible. You take your car on the test track (entering alone is better) and then back it up to the exit gate and the menu will open to exit the test track, and you can AFK over on that menu. I do it over there for 2-3hours a day
Just to add to this, if you want to get a bit more Car Meet rep using this method make sure you’re wearing at least one clothing item from the Car Meet store as that increases the rep you gain from hanging out there.
Unfortunately AFKing by watching TV seems to no longer work. You can still use security cameras and transition screens (when it asks which floor of a property you want to go in). If you want to AFK in a contact mission and you own multiple apartments in the same building you could probably walk into your apartment and AFK on the screen that asks you which apartment you want to go to. I haven't tested this but I imagine it would work since apartments and garages are able to be entered during missions.
I'm starting to get back into Arena Wars, just enough so I can unlock the taxi. Whenever I start up a game, there's always an option to purchase mods, but I can never use it. What does it require and what are mods in this case?
You have to select your own vehicle, then you get options to change its armor, livery etc. and "purchase mods" confirms your changes.
I completed the cayo perico heist once and i wanted to know if for the second time when i start it, and if in between the finale i stop the game and want to like restart it from scratch, would i have to pay 25k again? does the heist stay on even after new session like other ones? I repeated it many times the first time cause quick restart wouldn't spawn me back in stealth.
If I understand what you're asking: you pay a $25k setup fee to start a new heist. If you complete it and want to setup another you pay another $25k. If you call Pavel to cancel it you'll have to pay $25k to start up another one. You can leave a heist unfinished for as long as you want without paying any more setup fees. You only pay another setup fee once you either finish or cancel a heist.
You can also try then fail the heist, get back to the docks at LS and log off. Next time you log in, you can just launch the finale and try again.
didn't know you could cancel heists by calling them, that makes sense, thanks!
So I connected my prime account to my rockstar account a couple days ago and I know I'm supposed to wait a little while for the rewards to come in but I'm not sure if they will before the end of the discount on the strawberry mod shop, if I buy it now will I get a rebate for it?
That's what most people have been saying, you buy it and get a rebate. And if you don't you can always send a support ticket. Don't have prime so can't 100% verify.
I have 3.7 million and was thinking about buying the toreador but is it better than the scramjet or the oppressor mark 1
Personally, I think the Toreador is way better. Acceleration isn't great and the handling takes some getting used to, but it has a rapid fill boost, great top speed, can take a few missiles, it's a submarine, has infinite missiles and can be used in missions and the OG heists.
The toreador is indeed better than the scramjet. But it isn't betyer than the mk1. I would say buy the mk1 when u unlock its missiles through research but until then the toreador is better.
Yeah I just got the toreador cause I don’t have a moc and I didn’t want to have to research to get the middles don’t have the time for it
That's a great choice. In fact my first ever weaponized vehicle was the toreador it truly is amazing
I love the Scramjet, but I'd say Toreador for overall utility.
Toreador can tank ~~3~~ 5 homing-tier rockets before blowing up on the ~~5th~~ 6th vs the Scramjet getting destroyed with only 1. The Toreador also has unlimited rockets vs the Scramjet having a limit of 30. I'd doubly recommend it if you have a Kosatka though, as you can store it there and the boost makes it the easiest and quickest underwater vehicle to use.
> Toreador can tank 3 homing-tier rockets before blowing up on the 4th
5 homing missiles and it blows up on the 6th.
Ah yeah you're right, think I got my numbers mixed up with another car.
The toreador, unlike the scramjet, is not a pool magnet, and even if it was, it's waterproof, so no -$10k every once in a while.
Ok thank you very much for you input appreciate it
I saw offices are discounted this week, if I buy another office what happens to my garage and the cars in it?
They go to the new office.
How do I unlock the new tuner cars?
Earn rep by doing the Street or Pursuit races, doing Sprint races from the meet, buying clothing from the meet store, driving in the test track. You also get daily bonus for entering the meet and modifying a vehicle. Staying within the meet gives you small amounts every so often.
Every 5 levels you get the trade price of a random car, even ones not released yet. Need to get to 75 to have all car trade prices.
Can anyone who's doing it clarify for me what exactly the prize ride challenge is?
I've seen people saying it's 12 races and others saying it's 4 races and 3 wins.
I'm trying to decide whether I should actually do it or if it's too much effort.
Seems to be on a 24h timer aswell
Don't think so, I did one at like 11pm, another in the morning, and it did count. I've heard it resets at midnight UTC, dunno if that's true.
I've seen in most cases people saying it's just 3 wins over 4 days, and that R\* worded it poorly. Basically, a total of 3 wins is needed.
It's not really clear, [there is some discussion here.](https://www.reddit.com/r/gtaonline/comments/p335k5/im_confused_can_someone_explain_more_do_i_have/)
So I just bought a bunker and I’m not entirely sure of the best way to run it/make money from it. Anyone got any tips?
You'll need the staff and equipment upgrade to maximise profit. You buy supplies and the assigned technicians make guns for you to sell via the computer in the bunker. Upgraded, $75k of supplies creates $210k of guns (if selling long distance), in 2.5hours. Stock value up to $250k will guarantee one delivery vehicle. A full upgraded bunker sells for $1.05m and takes 4.5 resupplies and 12 hours to fill. The two best delivery missions you can get for a full bunker are the 2 Phantom Wedges or the 3 single drop insurgents. You only have to switch sessions one or two times to get these. If you have a Buzzard or OpMk2 you can deliver a full bunker with those vehicles solo with time to spare - you'd need to be in a solo public session though, or have associates to help or cover you. Your technicians can be assigned to produce guns, be split between guns and research or assigned solely to research. Bunker research is a pain - it unlocks useful items such as Mk2 weapons upgrades, special ammo types (such as exploding ammo), weaponised vehicle upgrades and a whole load of useless liveries and stuff.
The big idea of the bunker is passive money making and research, personally, I'd set a goal of either going for weapon researches until you unlock something you want like Explosive Ammo, or buy stock and sell it when it fills, one set of stock bought is a (from what I remember) garunteed one vehicle sale.
how much karma do i need to post something? it sais "Please fix the above requirements", but nothing more when i try to post.
I have the mc, nightclub with two techs, the cash mc and hangar. Would it be better to max out my cash mc upgrades first, or buy another MC business? I guess I’m asking which is the better strat, get all the businesses then level evenly, or buy one business at a time and max the upgrades?
If you're running the businesses, your first priority should be to upgrade whatever you buy before you buy any other businesses. Having to many unupgraded businesses means that you'll be producing less efficiently, especially if you're buying supplies for those that allow you to do so.
Cool. Thank you!
Are you asking about the nightclub or running the actual MC businesses themselves?
Upgrades on the individual businesses have no impact on their production in the nightclub.
If you are planning on running your MC businesses, you definitely need them fully upgraded to realize any kind of profit. The coke business is the most profitable. To have them produce goods for your nightclub, you only have to have the business in active status. You'll need all the technicians as well.
Yeah, the MC. I was going to do both (let the nightclub run it and do some deliveries from the MC businesses sometimes).
Is there a way to have the nightclub techs do the sales from the nightclub side, or do I need to do it each time?
You have to deliver the NC sale yourself. There are three different delivery vehicles depending on how much you are selling, but you are guaranteed one vehicle no matter what the value of the sale
I would buy the cocaine lockup and then upgrade it and the cash. Then spend your time resupplying and selling them.
You need to sell the nightclub product yourself.
The most efficient and profitable formula for nightclub product is to own: coke, meth, cash, bunker and cargo/hangar (hangar in your case). Let the warehouse accumulate product until the MC businesses are maxed out. Sell the product at that point and repeat.
You will need to upgrade the nightclub warehouse equipment as well so as you can see it's a bit of a long term goal.
Awesome info! Thank You!
The technicians accrue, you sell. Bright side is, it's always 1 vehicle sell missions for the nightclub selling missions.
Is there a list of what Autoshop setups unlock outfits? Been meaning to get them all since I know one of them gives a Lost MC outfit
The Lost MC outfits (four of them) come from, surprise surprise, the Lost contract.
I used to net a million-ish every couple days by starting Pier Pressure or Blood in the LS River, then going to my clubhouse and leaving my player watching TV so it wouldn’t kick me for idling while my nightclub warehouse workers stocked up. It seems this no longer works, it kicks me for idling now. Any other ways to leave the warehouse workers grinding while AFK?
The only way I've been able to AFK is to watch the security cameras in your autoshop or bunker, or watch the DJ in your nightclub. You won't get kicked, but you will pay the fees.
If you're able to connect a controller, there's always the classic rubber-band around the analog stick trick.
I haven't tested this but I'd imagine it would work just fine while in a contact mission: if you own multiple apartments in the same building go into the apartment building and AFK on the screen where it asks you which apartment you want to go to.
Using the DJ live feed in your nightclub is another way that still works, or so I was told. Might want to research this.
I'll give it a shot! The nice thing about the mission method is it suspended the daily fees and nightclub popularity hit. But it should balance out with enough warehouse goods.
Yeah they patched that with the new update.
I have been going to the car meet and entering the test track. Then back out of the test track and leave it on the screen where it asks if you want to exit the meet or enter the meet.
You still have to pay your business fees unfortunately but you won’t get kicked and your nightclub will still run.
Also your car meet rep goes up doing this. Put on a car meet hoody or something and it goes up pretty quick. I’m at level 125 or so and I don’t even do it every day.
Just started playing and I keep doing fetch quests for Simeon. How do I progress the game?
I recommend doing the collectables and challenges (also flight school). Those net around +750k and tons of RP and increase your stats. Make second character and do that again. 1st and 2nd character share the bank account, so you can get to over 1.5mil easily. You also unlock some weapons and outfits by doing this.
Your goal should be to save enough for CEO office + Kosatka or Auto Shop. Kosatka is the best way to make money, but auto shop might be bit easier for newcomer right now (while giving OK payout). Also if you have Twitch Prime, auto shop is free.
Edit: also check War Stock website. Duke o' Death might still be free. Armored vehicle like this makes your life easier in the missions. If DoD isn't free anymore, regular Kuruma is still glitched and acts like armored one but costs only 90k.
Simeon can suck nuts. Use the quick job button on your phone to do contact missions, and either buy your first 10car garage apartment for 250k, or buy the first office for 500k this week (theyre on sale). Offices allow you to buy a lot of stuff, and you can run headhunter missions/sightseer missions when ceo for easy bucks. And I think a small warehouse is 110k for cargo missions, and that’s slow but decent money while doing sightseer alongside them.
Thank you, so you have to buy property to do certain missions? The game does poorly at explaining that
The high end apartments give access to heists.
Arcade is casino heist
Submarine is Cayo perico
Facility is doomsday heist
Office gives access to import/export and warehousing.
Biker stuff let’s you live out being a drug kingpin
Auto shops are… auto shop contracts
I can’t remember the rest. There’s a lot of ill explained stuff.
If I don't have any intention of running the casino heist anytime soon, is it still worth it to buy an arcade? I've heard there are some business management features for it, though I only run Cayo, Nightclub, and Bunker now, so would it be any benefit for me or just extra daily fees?
* You can get a weapon workshop in your basement (after you choose a gunman for your heist).
* You can buy the Master Control Terminal to manage your businesses
* You get another spawn point
* You get a 10 car garage
* You can buy and play arcade games, they're basically end game content.
* You get another place to stock up on snacks
* You can get a drone station
* You can get a keypad to practice every single hacking minigame there is (after you complete the hacking device prep).
The arcade's daily fees are negligible and the money you get from its safe is more than enough to pay for them. All of these perks require you to upgrade your arcade so if you're not going to be playing its heist anytime soon, wait for them to go on sale.
> * You get a 10 car garage
> * You get another place to stock up on snacks
Wait, really? I've had an arcade for ages and never realised these two were benefits... Are they on all arcades? For the garage, do you just drive up to the big door at the back?
Yup, really. Every arcade has snacks because every arcade has Wendy working the bar, who gives you the snacks.
As for the cars, you drive them to the blue corona, wherever it may be. The arcade on Rockford Hills has the garage in the back and so does the one in La Mesa. Others may differ.
Yeh and Wendy doesn't tell you off for having too many like the CEO Assistant.
Thanks for the info! Not sure how I've missed Wendy providing snacks all this time... That's gonna save a lot of driving between Videogeddon and Maze Bank West each time I heist the casino. And extra garage slots are always handy
Can you do the prep missions solo?
Yes, some of them are a bit tedious on your own as you need to steal 2 things; 2 cars, 2 bags of explosives etc. so it means stealing one, going all the way back to the arcade and then back to the crime scene to steal the second car/explosive etc. I tend to crack through the ones I know are just single runs and then do all the others when friends are online but they are at least all possible as a solo player. My favourite is probably Guard Routes, I use the Avenger fitted with Gas Bombs and kill all the Duggans from the air, land, photo the schedule and fly off again.
Yes but they're designed to be a lot easier when done with others helping you. The vehicle prep takes a bunch of time alone but is fairly fast with 2 people, for example.
yes, altho some of them will require two trips forth and back to complete
A bit of extra daily fees, and like 50k once in 10 ingame days. It pays off. You can also (with upgrades) use it as a garage space, and launch drones from it.
Deliver it yourself, it’s the only way to guarantee it won’t get fucked. It’s stupid I know. Rockstar makes you pay a stupid amount of money for something that doesn’t even work correctly.
You get paid, but less. You can't make them not crash, but in my opinion I'd still rather use them to deliver rather than delivering the cars myself.
Will the Calico get nerfed or something? It is way too fast. No car can overtake it, not even F1 cars. If somethings not wrong with that i don't know what is. It isn't even fun anymore to do races cuz everyone will just use the Calico.
The Calico is really only super fast on low grip tyres. You're not going to win many races with it though as it just won't corner. The Vectre is technically quicker on most tracks as it has better handling.
While R\* has done that in the past (like the RE-7B), it's entirely up to them and we really have no way of knowing what (and if) they're gonna do in this particular case.
>It isn't even fun anymore to do races cuz everyone will just use the Calico.
I get what you mean by that, but that was also the case before the Calico. People just learn what's best for the given class/track type and start using it.
Hello, I am currently lvl 45 and I'm grinding for a Terrorbyte. And I plan to grind again for the Opressor Mk.II. They will be used for grinding more money for the Kotsatka.
My question is, should I just go for the Kotsatka or should I go with my original plan?
Kosatka asap, it will fund everything else.
To get a TerrorByte, you need to own a nightclub. Assuming you already own one, you'll need to play 5 client jobs to get the oppressor mk2 trade price.
All in all, you have the cost of the terrorbyte (1,375,000 + 495k for the specialized workshop so you can put missiles on your mk2) + the cost of the trade priced oppressor mk2 (2,925,000) to grind for. That's well over twice the amount of money the Kosatka would cost you (you'd be spending close to 5M on just these things). If you don't own a nightclub, that's at at least another million or so you need to account for.
Kosatka first, Sparrow for the Kosatka as soon as possible, everything else after these two purchases.
I already own a nightclub and currently sitting on 1.8 m. It was because of a youtube video that gave me that plan. But after owning the nightclub I realized that maybe I should buy the kosatka. But now I know, Thank you for your advice!
Make sure you check the dates on the videos and guides you read.
If they were made anywhere before the release of the Cayo Perico heist, you can safely discard them in favour of the Kosatka.
There are many ways of making money in this game and at some point in time, they were surely the most profitable ones. Not anymore with the sub and CPH though.
Financially speaking, it would be best to grab the sub first, since even if you are more interested in non-CP activities, the return of investment is near-instant, and it will give you the option to grind a few millions quickly whenever you need.
Do we only need to win 4 races over the next 4 days to get the lscm vehicle ?
It seems like it... The challenge says 2/4 after winning one sprint yesterday and one today. But I guess we won't know for sure until it's the 4th day since the start of the challenge.
24h timer aswell
Ya I can’t get anyone to do sprints with me and I don’t wanna risk it 😂
You could always get someone in the discord server here, or HeistTeams, or ask in the lobby... Or if you're on PC & playing now I could let you win, but for the next few days I probably won't be a reliable sprint partner lol.
I’m on ps4 thanks anyway tho
Played GTAO for a few years on Xbox now, made the switch to PC a few days back. The girlfriend plays on the Xbox still and she was looking through her in game friends list, and my Xbox character was showing as online while I was on PC.
Anybody know if I can change that?
You'll have to unlink your Social Club account from your Xbox
That's actually really obvious. Wow I'm dumb, thanks haha
If you purchase a special ammo type will it cost anything to switch back to normal ammo and then back to the special type on different days?
It's completely free. Also, you get to keep the rounds in your older magazines, so no need to buy them again when switching back (unless you have the same ammo type on another weapon of the same class, in which case they do share the same ammo).
Does someone know how much Karma u need to post videos on this subreddit? I tried a few times , but my Posts always get removed
When you say "post videos", what do you mean exactly?
Anybody trying to do act2 back to back a few times?
You could probably find someone using the links under Rule 6.
What is the best way to make money?
grind for kosatka and then grind cayo perico, but that takes the fun out of the game
Is this soloable? Also why does it take the fun out
It doesn't take the fun out but it does drastically reduce the amount of effort it takes to get the things you want.
> Also why does it take the fun out
The more money you have, the more fun things you can afford to own/. Once you run out of fun things to own/do, the game becomes boring unless you dedicate yourself to a specific part of the game (some people play heists, others race, others PVP, and so on). This particular heist pays extremely well which may lead you to have an overabundance of money and this circles back to my initial point
When I first got my hands on it, I bought every single property I didn’t own, and upgraded them ASAP. Never ran a casino heist or doomsday, but I own the Aquarius yacht with gold trim! Nah fr I enjoy this game a lot and the cars have gotten better recently, I stopped running Cayo often as the other means for money is more enjoyable to me
yes, cayo perico is soloable
why? because it's stereotypical and you're going to lose on other fun stuff in the game
So I started playing with friend, you know helping each other for heists and stock deliveries. But now I am stuck at Solo as my friend moved to a different game.
Since I'm fairly new into this (like maybe a week in but I've completed the story mode ages ago), what are my chances to play as Solo and have fun, what should I do enjoy this game and have some interest to login everyday and play? OR should I completely drop the idea of going Solo?
The game is actually becoming more and more solo friendly with each update...
Of course some stuff is way more fun with others, and some content can't be played solo (like most heists). Businesses can be done solo, some will just be harder, Cayo Perico heist is completely soloable (it's also the best way to make money in the entire game), you can play contact missions, the new contracts/mini heists in the auto shop are also soloable. Or you can just collect and mod cars, join races, stunt, anything you want really.
So it's definitely possible and there's lots of stuff you can do solo, but if you'll have fun, that depends on how much you enjoy playing solo in general I guess... But you could always try finding other people to play with if you get bored of playing alone, right in the game, in r/HeistTeams, r/gtafriends, join some crew that's focused on something you enjoy...
cayo perico heist is soloable, so you can have some fun doing that, but i think the fun won't last long as if you were playing with a friend
I know the new Meth contract from the drip feed was released, but it’s not on my board. Is there a way to start it, or do I just have to keep playing contracts until I get it?
You can start contract and call Sessanta to cancel it, they will refresh. Should also refresh every in-game day I think.
