Is Rockstar going to do something about players using a cheat where they can't be killed?


JRiggz108999

so i get the blue dot for a auto shop export car , i get in the car which is a nightshade expecting to get the blip to goto simeon at the docks but nothing comes up at all , happens almost every time now , so it’s a blue dot for a non NPC vehicle but that’s it

What is the best way to reach level 100 from level 80?


2t0

Collectibles and their challenges.


Mafitron

Is it worth buying business again for 2nd character? Have about 20 mil.


XarH

Goods are manufactured only for the currently-played character. So unless you're doing this for the challenge/experience in starting fresh, I'd say the main "practical" reason to do so is if you're interested in grinding 5 large crate warehouses on your 2nd character and keeping them ready for the next x2 week. But I wouldn't recommend doing this move with only 20M in the bank. Do you have another reason for why you'd wish to do so?


-C18

Which drip feed car will release today? Hoping for the Cypher.


Bulbasaur2015

if I have a goal of buying every car, what are some strategies to organize garages to find the space for that? how many garages need buying


XarH

I'll start by saying that it's not possible to own all the vehicles, I'm afraid. The max number of garage spots (if you own 8 Dynasty8 10-car garages and all the properties with a garage) is 236 all-purpose parking spots, and then a few more locked to a specific vehicle/vehicle class (like bikes in the Clubhouse and and Cerberus in the Arena Workshop). But in terms of storage strategies, the most common sorting method is by class. Other popular sorting methods are by manufacturer, franchise (Fast and Furious seems quite popular) and by DLC. Using a spreadsheet is really important to keep track of everything, as you can keep additional info about every vehicle other than its storage location, and also open a second tab for keeping track of storage levels on each garage and add visual charts if you like.


ihilde

im working on building up my bunker / arms dealing. rn im making 85k each delivery, since I just resupply all the way and sell everything once I run out of supplies. im currently stealing all the supplies, (sometimes buying the last 15k), because if only be making 10k if i bought it. should I be selling my stock at the 85k mark or should I restock and sell more at once? I am trying to do this solo (if that matters at all). Thanks!


XarH

You should probably save up for the Staff & Equipment upgrades, since (as you've noticed) running the Bunker by stealing supplies is quite tideous. Joining someone's Casino/CP heist is probably the quickest method if you can't host them yourself yet. Once you have these upgrades, you can buy a full supply bar for 75K and sell it for 210K when ready. This method guarantees a single delivery vehicle, so it's really solo-friendly.


TJM24_7

What car should I buy that is very costumizable in the car meet?


PM_ME_UR_SYLLOGISMS

Loads of cars have a lot of customisation. What kind of car do you want?


TJM24_7

A super or hyper car. Does the Benefactor Krieger have good customizations?


AndrewGames9000

does the nightclub come with a garage


Chmcneil2018

One spot for a car but unless you buy the garage space for it no.

KYQ_Archer

Make sure that one of your MC businesses didn't get raided.


JordanDaviesIsMyDad

I'm still waiting for the 250k for reaching level 20 in the car meet before August 18th and waiting for the rebate for the strawberry auto shop property that you get with amazon prime, I've submitted a ticket but they just say to be patient, anyone else still waiting?


PooveyFarmsRacer

what are some practical examples of how to use the Terrorbyte to make resupply missions quicker and easier?


superthijs_2

What facility should I get and should I wait until it’s on sale again?


XarH

Wind Farm and Route 68 will be perfect. The latter is a lil bit more expensive, but it also has an aircraft spawn just behind the entrance, which can be quite handy. Lago Zancudo is also pretty good, tho driving to the city during setup/back from the Facility during the Deluxo prep can be a bit tideous, tho not terribly long. Whether or not to wait for a sale is up to you- they aren't terribly expensive in today's standars, but will be worth waiting for tomorrow to see if there's a sale indeed. If you wish to start the heist soon, or want to buy one of the Facility-stored vehicles, might as well get it full-price.


superthijs_2

I see, I have the worst bunker because I got it for free and rn the bunkers are on sale, do you think it would be smart to buy the one next to route 68? And do u recommend any upgrades


XarH

For a Bunker I'd recommend either Chumans or Farmhouse. In terms of upgrades, Staff & Equipment are required to make it really profitable (otherwise you'd have to steal supplies to make any profit, which is a pain). The Shooting range has some pretty neat unlocks if you're willing to do the challenges, tho just like with upgrades, you can always buy it later. I'd also go with Living Quarters just to make spawning there an option, which is really convenient. A gun locker would also be nice, unless you own one already. Anything else is pretty much up to you. As a side note tho- and ik it's said over and over in this sub but better safe than sorry- if you don't own a Kosatka already, it would be best to grab one first, since it's a better money maker and the return of investment is pretty much instant. This will make buying a Bunker with whatever upgrades you want much easier.


superthijs_2

Also may I know what’s good about those two?


XarH

By "these two" are you referring to the aforementioned Bunker locations, or the Staff & Equipment upgrades? For the former, these 2 locations are closest to the city, so it's faster to do the city sell with the x1.5 bonus. About these upgrades, they will speed up manufacturing and increase profits.


superthijs_2

Aha well I think I’m going rather close with the route 68 bunker since I will probs get the route 68 facility and I’d like for them to be close to each-other if this is a dumb decision I’ll love to hear it


XarH

I guess it's not too bad of a choice either if you feel like Facility vicinity is important to you. Just by looking on its road access, on average selling will probably take maybe an extra minute or so compared to the other 2, but you'll have enough time to make the sells. Maybe sell missions that start in the southwest will take as quickly as Farmhouse sells, maybe even a bit quicker.


superthijs_2

Tbh rn I don’t see the benefit of sell missions since I can make 1.1 mill atleast every hour with the heist


XarH

Fair point :P


superthijs_2

Luckily I got one 2 weeks ago it’s how I’m making money now, I‘ve never had this much fun


tv-mad-lad

Do you know if you need more than 5 people in a race for it to count at top 5 in a race? Me and my mates would much rather just do it among us, and can it be a private race?


greysilence

Race takes 3 minutes, why post here instead of just doing one? But yes it counts.


tv-mad-lad

Because i did like 4 and only came top 5 once because I kept getting smashed of the road and I’m not a big fan of the races anyway, thanks for the help :)


TheThemePark

Yesterday I accidentally pressed a key on my keyboard, that made the screen on my in-game phone widen, so now the third column of icons is barely visible. I've done this before and managed to fix it, but now I can't remember how. Has anyone experienced this and know how to fix it?


Federal-Butterfly-32

New to the game and very overwhelmed by all the "options?". I know it's sandbox and there isn't something I'm supposed to do specifically but wtf? Everytime I enter i get hella spammed on the email and text messages, top left hints, invitations, and now I can't even remember or identify what were the things I've done or told to do in the tutorial, i get invited to some events for which apparently I'm not high level enough (I'm like 7 or smth). Any tips? This Lester pos keeps saying "do you want to do this or not?" Telling me to buy an arcade when the arcade is like 1.5M and I get like 5k tops for each thing I've done, without having in mind expenses and stuff. The names for the jobs don't say much about the job nor do the lists specify much about anything and the loading screens are too long to bare just to find it's a 10 player thing and people don't join or join and leave so it's another loading screen back and I don't even know what's the money offered for the jobs like wut.


Erictheking96

this page lists everything from the very basics to the more specialist: https://www.reddit.com/r/gtaonline/wiki/index


Federal-Butterfly-32

Ty will check


PooveyFarmsRacer

here are some things that helped me get a wrangle on the whole game: In the Interaction Menu (hold Select on console), find Hide Options and turn off activities you don't want appearing on your minimap. Helps a lot to clean up all the confusing icons There are some story quests you should try to do first. You should also do Flight School as soon as possible This post from the FAQs is very helpful and informative https://www.reddit.com/r/gtaonline/comments/3yn8c1/how_to_gta_online_new_faqs_contribution/ First big things to buy are a high-end apartment and either a motorcycle club headquarters or a CEO business. also do Contact Missions and the weekly promoted Jobs that do bonus payouts, which this subreddit lists every Thursday. if you like racing and deathmatches, do those jobs too, they're really fun although they don't make much money once you've grinded out enough money, get the Kosatka submarine and learn the Cayo Perico heist. buy the Sparrow helicopter thats part of the sub, but you don't have to buy it at the same time, you can always revisit the Warstock website and renovate the submarine. the Cayo heist will get you $1.3 million or so every time you run it well, and when you get good at it the whole thing takes like an hour and a half then use Cayo Perico to grind money for the next things you want, whatever they may be. the Nightclub and Bunker are really good long-term goals. Then there are other properties that unlock other endgame Heist missions.


Federal-Butterfly-32

Ty. I got the criminal enterprise starter pack does that change anything regarding first purchases?


PooveyFarmsRacer

yes! [im reading what's in the CES](https://support.rockstargames.com/articles/115015759007/Contents-of-the-Criminal-Enterprise-Starter-Pack-for-GTAV) and wow they set you off with some good stuff: * Comes with a ~~high~~ low-end apartment (see comment below). * Comes with a CEO business * Comes with a Bunker property * Comes with a Biker Clubhouse and a business to run with it Click the link I shared and look at the names of the properties. When you go to the in-game website Maze Bank Foreclosures to buy properties, only the ones named in that link will be free to you because you already bought them. so start with those, don't buy redundant properties and waste money


CheezCurdConnoisseur

I think it's a low-end apartment. No heist planning room and only a 2 car garage.


PooveyFarmsRacer

Take note /u/Federal-Butterfly-32


InfluenceMotor

Is it worth buying the Toreador if I already have the Stromberg?


azdexikp

Yes, regardless of whatever you own. That car is way too good due to how versatile it is. Take advantage of the sale, the normal price of 3.6M can be a bit steep depending on your finances.


isshun_boshi

if you have a kosatka then YES! leave the kraken avisa upgrade and get a toreador instead! theres just time you want to use that car instead of the sparrow, like the fingerprint cloner prep! also its a great car!


InfluenceMotor

I don't have a Kosatka. The Stromberg is one of my favourite cars and I heard the Toreador is like it but better.


isshun_boshi

way better than the stromberg because it has unlimited nitros. i do recommend you to get kosatka first since consider that as your bread and butter for cash now. but if you dont care then go get the toreador its a fun car.


InfluenceMotor

I bought the Toreador and I prefer the Stromberg. I like the handling better on the Stromberg and you can't honk the horn on the Toreador. At least it has unlimited missiles so that's something I guess. If I'm fighting against other players I might be better off in the Toreador.


isshun_boshi

yeah i sometimes wanted to honk a pedestrian or other player on a toreador and forgot that it change into the nos button... doesnt end well that... lol but its one of the fastest car now because of the nitrous and its hella fun to jump from the water to surface using nitrous!


InfluenceMotor

They're different enough that the Toreador doesn't make the Stromberg obsolete. The Stromberg is good for cruising around but I think the Toreador will be better for PvP.


InfluenceMotor

I think Cayo Perico would take too long and be too hard for me. I'll buy the Toreador. Thanks for the advice.


Separate-Ad-1938

just bought it because of sale after grinding. never had any special vehicle beside kosatka and buzzard and i had an absolute blast with that car. Can be launched into air, swims and have weapons. not great for pvp but its good as i just got griefed by a rhino.


InfluenceMotor

Maybe I should buy the Kosatka but I wouldn't be able to get all the upgrades right away. I'm not really that interested in the Cayo Perico heist and I think I might have more fun with the Toreador, but on the other hand, I'm wondering what the Cayo Perico heist everyone is doing is like.


Separate-Ad-1938

if ur low on money get a kosatka. It will solve every financial problem u will encounter in game. Because by "grinding" in above comment i mean i did cayo 2 times in a day😆. Toreador can be bought by doing it 3 times and yeah sparrow helps alot in preps making heist significantly shorter and u dont beed upgrades at all.


InfluenceMotor

Yeah but I'm not really interested in heists and I heard it takes hours to do it. I won't be able to buy both before the sale ends so if I was going to do Cayo Perico then I would be better off buying the Kosatka and then paying full price for the Toreador. I'm more interested in the sonar station and guided missiles than Cayo Perico so I wouldn't want to buy one without them. I think the Toreador is the way to go.


azdexikp

> I'm wondering what the Cayo Perico heist everyone is doing is like. It's the best money maker right now which is why everyone is nuts about it. Picture having to spend hours upon hours grinding small jobs and businesses to make enough money to buy a car. Now picture only having to spend an hour prepping and playing 1 single heist to make over 1M in one go and you'll see why it's so popular. It's also fun to play but I find it to be more enjoyable with friends. Doing it solo gets boring after you've mastered it.


Papy_Wouane

Hey, coming back to the game to check out the new update. I needed some cash and went for the good old Cayo Perico, I noticed they changed a couple things here and there. Two things come to mind, first: They removed the simultaneous card swipe interaction, does that mean we can access bonus rewards inside the mansion even as a solo player now? I assume not, but still asking. Second thing is: It seems like I cannot one-shot headshot the rotating armored guard anymore, can I? Am I supposed to just go around him? Thanks.


Running-With-Cake

You don't need a second player to simultaneously card swipe, but you do need a second player in the finale. The change just means you can loot different locations requiring a swipe card independently. The Juggernaut has been buffed and shot gun blasts to the head are the best way to kill it, but there's really no need as you can do the finale without ever crossing its path


Papy_Wouane

What do you mean by needing a second player in the finale? I've mostly done it solo. EDIT: I'm stupid. 2 cards, 2 players, but no need for the both of us to be at the same place at the same time looting the same room. Got it.


A-Cheeseburger

I get that destroyed cars can be insured after tracking to get them again. But what about planes and boats? And can bought cars be destroyed? Basically, how can I not lose a vehicle, be it stolen or bought?


XarH

Purchased vehicles automatically come insured and with a tracker. Personal aircrafts are also insured and cost $1K per claim it's your fault. Boats and planes from Pegasus can always be spawned again by calling Pegasus.


rogertheporcupine

Are there any older tuner class cars that you can use for contract finales? (Specifically the Comet Retro Custom) Or is it just the Tuner update cars?


EzioAudacity

Just the Tuner update cars.


rogertheporcupine

That's dumb, the old tuners should have grand fathered in. Oh well, guess I'll get the new supra or the old subie.


bob_the_impala

For some of the finales, you can drive over to one of your regular garages, enter, and drive out with another one of your personal vehicles, like an Armored Kuruma, for example.


Tooj_Mudiqkh

Thought it was all. Are there any that exclude access to apartment garages?


bob_the_impala

I have not personally tried it on all of them, so I'm not sure. It might depend on the mission objective, whether it will work or not. I know that I have been able to on the ECU job (the one with the train), the Superdollar job (the one with the MOC), and the Lost Contract. I think I also did it on the one where you go into the tunnels to the IAA building, but that one is not that big of a deal, as far as the driving parts.


Tooj_Mudiqkh

They're all classed as types of Missions so I'd doubt you'd be blocked. Interesting thing though is that some of the weaponised vehicles seem to have disabled functionality for some reason - I can't use the mines for example and the Deluxo won't fly (this is PC with almost standard keyboard mapping).


jazzyjeff253

When they gonna drop some new houses


Firekiller967

Is anyone 100% sure if the black panther statue is out right now? Because if it is I am going to go for it and don't want to get rid of my hard mode pink diamond without knowing for sure it's back.


bob_the_impala

No, it is not currently available.


Firekiller967

:( dang. Thank you though for telling me.


bob_the_impala

It has only been available one time so far, when Rockstar decided to make it available for a week. Until they decide to do so again, it is not available, similar to diamonds for the Casino Heist.


pokemon-fan-asia

can I buy the black fin for 139k and sell it for actual price once prime promo is over?


PooveyFarmsRacer

no, i believe the game remembers the price you paid for vehicles and uses it when you sell cars back


AntsGoUp

Hello guys, I have only 11 liveries for the pfister Growler. I was expecting a release like it was done on the comet S2.. but still nothing. I don't have the 3 official Porsche Liveries, do you any idea how it can be unlocked ?


GunzAndButter_

Question: does anyone know if the Annis remus will come back into the prize ride challenge at some point soon? thanks!


doesnotlikecricket

I'm not aware of any predictions. You can usually find videos showing the future prize wheel cars, but I haven't seen a video for the prize ride. Either way, it's unlikely they would have the same car within a few weeks.


GunzAndButter_

That's annoying but hopefully it will come out again soon, if not I might as well buy it. Thanks for the reply.


TeamRocket21

If I wanted to do some of the Tuner update races with just me and my friend..how do I do this? When I go to the car in the car meet he sucks me into a game with randoms and I am unable to find them in online job list for races, unless I’m just missing them. Thanks in advance!


TerzieffaCZ

First set your matchmaking to closed (pause menu > online > options > matchmaking), then start the race from pause menu, dunno where you were looking for them but it's somewhere under jobs > play job > Rockstar created > races, all those races are called Street Race - something. You'll be the host and you can invite your friend.


TeamRocket21

Thank you!


MrShahjee

I have a question, can anyone tell me the size of GTA 5 if I download it on PS5 what's the complete file size? How much space would I need to download/install it? And do I need to download the full game to play online?


PooveyFarmsRacer

when i google it, different sites give different ranges. looks like it'll be roughly 50-70 GB with all the updates on a PS5. at least on xbox, when the game allows you to play while it's still installing, online is not available. and GTAO is only available within GTAV, so yes i believe you need the full game installed before you can play Online


MrShahjee

Yes I saw online was around the same size as you mentioned, thank you


doesnotlikecricket

Last time I checked, I thought it was closer to 90 to be honest. I can check my storage a little later and reply.


MrShahjee

That would be great if you can check and let me know. Thank you.


doesnotlikecricket

83.27gb on my ps5.


MrShahjee

Thanks man, much appreciated.


halborn

Even if it were possible to split story mode off, it wouldn't save you very much. I don't know what the file size ends up being but estimating from information online, it looks like it's more than 50GB and possibly more than 70GB.


MrShahjee

Okayy great, I understand, thank you.

Do I pay taxes (to my mechanic, etc.) when I'm offline?

EatMyShorts04

How to get the most out of a 2nd character? Started one because I’ve maxed out on garage spaces on my main


Maraudentium

Not much actual use you can get out of a second character. You can collect more stuff...withdraw all your money on one character and AFK on the other and not have to pay bills...before Cayo it made some sense to have ten large warehouses between two characters, gradually fill them to 75-ish crates before 2x$ on special cargo, then finish the grind during the event week and sell them then, you can still do this if you just want a big payday...you can have heists set up for friends maybe...or you can just have a different character to change things up a tiny bit. If you're gonna spend any real time with your second character I'd get the character set up with basics...nightclub (with bunker, coke/meth/cash MCs, and hanger...for plane storage unless you plan to do vehicle/special cargo), kosatka, and a few of the more useful vehicles. Everything can wait for a sale week, no need to buy anything full price really.


PooveyFarmsRacer

i believe if your first character is above RP 120, you can make your second guy start at level 120 and save yourself a lot of time. your two characters share a bank account, so you can sell some stuff or do some jobs on your first guy just to give your second guy a cushion of money to start with your second guy should buy the Kosatka early so he can keep grinding money. youll also want a CEO office early. and the new Auto Shop business has some cool missions and moneymaking opportunities


TouristAcceptable

When I'm in the northern part of the island, a blue dot appears on the map. The blue dot is a police van and I am not sure what I have to do. Can anyone please help? Thank you.


bigb5555

Kill the cops, steal the van and deliver the people inside to the destination. You'll then have Packie McReary as an available gunmen (accomplice) in the casino heist.


TouristAcceptable

Thank you !


InfluenceMotor

Why do some players keep targeting me and then when I go into passive mode they still follow me? Then I leave my game on and do something else for about 10 minutes and they're still waiting for me. What is the point of this? Surely these people have better things to do than waste their time like this.


doesnotlikecricket

Are you a low or lowish level? Gta has a fairly sizeable population of shit stains who only play the game to ruin others' fun. They are usually pretty shit at the game, so they target newer players. As a level 300, I'm generally left alone because they know if they kill me once I won't stop killing them until they leave the session. Some tips for you - ghost org gives you three mins off radar, during which time they'll probably find someone else to annoy. Additionally, the kind of people who do this tend to be so bad without their lock on rockets, that they are like an infant holding a controller without them. So keep your map extended and as they approach, get out of your car and see if you can shoot them with an MG. They can't target you on foot and they can't hit a building without lock on. The night shark, if you can afford one (might be on discount this weekend) can take a bunch of missiles and it's fast, so it's a great free roam vehicle. Other than that, it's just something you have to deal with. You basically need to be checking your minimap all the time. It can be annoying and these people are cunts, but I'd still take them over playing in an invite only session alone. Something about playing a multiplayer game completely alone for months or years just seems really weird to me.


InfluenceMotor

I'm level 276. I think the other player was lower than that. I've played for a while but I've encountered several unpleasant players lately, including some who can't be killed. Is that a new hack that people have done? I don't mind engaging in battles with other players sometimes as long as it's fair, but following a player around in passive mode is just griefing. I can change sessions any time and they can't kill me in passive mode so they're just wasting their time. Ghost organisation is good but I have to get out of their sight first or they'll just keep following me. I've managed to avoid a few people on oppressors by dodging their missiles and then hitting them with mine. I have a Nightshark that I haven't used in ages so I might get that back out.


bigb5555

The RC Tank and RC Bandito are a good way to 'disappear' for a while. You don't show on the mini map when using them. Homing missiles will lock onto them though so avoid direct line of sight with Oppressor MKIIs etc. If you are being constantly griefed by planes and/or Oppressor MKIIs, the best counter in the game is the version of the Ruiner 2000 available in the VIP job Fully Loaded. It eats MKIIs for breakfast and destroys jets pretty easily too. However, you need to own the Ruiner in order to unlock the job and you only have access to it for 20 minutes and there's a 60 minute cooldown.


doesnotlikecricket

Oh that's pretty high. Don't know what to tell you to be honest, I'm generally left alone at level 300 and I've never been followed around in passive. If I'm just organising cars etc I'll be in passive and nobody has ever paid me any notice. Are you on PC? I've heard it's worse. I've seen a few invincible players on console - I always send a report to Rockstar with an unlisted YouTube video, and someone views those videos, so Rockstar must at least look into it.


Tooj_Mudiqkh

First time I've heard of someone actually watching one. Sure it wasn't a viewcount from another of your YT accounts etc? I've submitted multiples as I record every session whatever character I'm using, and I've a big fat zero in terms of views, and same goes for my crew members that I've asked.


doesnotlikecricket

I suppose it's possible that I viewed it a couple of times myself for whatever reason and forgot.


EatMyShorts04

What’s the account age and karma requirements to make a post on here?


bob_the_impala

That information is not going to be revealed by the moderators, because then spammers and karma farmers would take advantage of it. You appear to be new to Reddit, so I recommend checking out /r/NewToReddit You can also ask any common/simple/frequently-asked questions relating to GTA Online in this thread.

[deleted]

Question about daily fees. I've been playing for years but I've been lobby jumping every 46 minutes for as far as I can remember. I own pretty much everything so fees are somwhere around 50k each day. I know you are charged less if you're not on the MC club or CEO. But my question is: If I am registered as CEO at the end of the day I should get charged "only" around 20k (considering the other 30k are biker bussiness). If I change from CEO to MC club AFTER paying the 20k daily fees will I be charged the other 30k or will I be able to play the next 48 minutes without anymore charge?


XarH

You won't get charged right away. MCs have a separate timer from CEO and regular fees, which start the first time you register as an MC in the current session. So for example, if you register as CEO 10 minutes after joining a session, the fees for regular utilities will get charged at the 48th minute, and for CEO ion the 58th minute (if you're registered at that moment, or immediately if you're not registered at that moment if you re-register after that). And if you first register as MC on the, let's say, 30th minute of the session, fees will be charged on the 78th minute.


[deleted]

I see... Thanks. Considering I always register as MC club inmediatly after I log in it won't solve much then.


catmadder

How do I go about connect my Mc businesses to my nc


bob_the_impala

Register as a VIP/CEO/MC, then log into one of the computers in your Nightclub. Go to the Warehouse Management section, where you can hire and assign technicians. If you have the MC Cocaine business, for example, you would assign a Nightclub Technician to "South American Imports." You can continue to run your Cocaine business separately, if you like, or just keep it open and unsupplied if you just want to use the Nightclub.


Kubrick007

Where’s the best overall spawn location?


XarH

It really depends on your daily routine and which spawn locations you have access to. If it's a property-specific activity, it's usually best to set the spawn point there (or as close there as possible if that location doesn't have living quarters). If you're running numerous pre-CH businesses, the Arcade is a great initial spawn if you have the MCT there. If you're still not sure and are looking for some suggestions, you're welcome to mention your main activities and what spawn locations you have access to, and we'll see what could work best.


TheDark1

Hey guys, I've been playing online for a week or so after being inactive for over 6 years. I bought the nightclub because I want to buy the oppressor but I'm thinking I made a mistake. I should tried to go straight for the kosatka sub so I can do cayo perico, right? Should I funnel all resources towards that right now? I have about 900k so I'd need to grind quite a bit to get there...


travmo226

Yes, cayo perico can net you 1mil an hour once you get the route down. I recommend funneling all resources to getting the Kosatka and the sparrow helicopter that comes with it. The chopper will make heist setup missions a breeze. You can do all of the heist solo as well.


TheDark1

Thanks. I'm only level 55 so I doubt I can solo it haha


Tooj_Mudiqkh

It's not really about levels - when I hop into the combat-heavy Casino jobs as a rando for example (I've a couple of low levels) it's not been uncommon for me as a level 20something to have to carry level 300+'s who are shit at combat. And after I carry them despite their dumb moves many will report me for modding because they presumably can't understand that there are other ways of fighting than running straight at your enemy spraying and then complain about aimbot, lol In terms of PvE offense and that includes Cayo, you can absolutely ace pretty much all missions really from the mid-twenties up. You can also even out the racing field now thanks to the Auto Shop - you can be the minimum level and have the same upgrades as everyone else. PvE stealth is really broken in GTA but when it actually works like in Cayo you should use it. And when it comes to unavoidable combat, cover, cover, cover - always keep an eye on your health and know when to snack.


Smavey

Hey im level 60 and suck at shooting and just did it solo! Didn't even do it stealthy. Wasn't easy, but wasn't too too hard. I hear doing it stealthy is a lot easier, so going to try it that way if I run it again.


travmo226

You got this bro


travmo226

I've been soloing it since about level 20. Weapons and vehicle are all taken care of as a part of the heist prep


TheDark1

I'm also shit at this game lol


interrobang__

Yesterday I got over $1m added to my account, anyone know of a recent event that would have merited that?


Wakko21

Over 1 mill or 1 mill exact? If exact then it’s probably from the 1 mill monthly giveaway the R* is given everyone. Usually you have to go to PS store to claim it but some people get it automatically


interrobang__

No it was a little over 1.5 I think but not a whole number


Communist_Cracker420

should I buy a CEO warehouse for $360,000 or save up $300,000 more to buy a coke lockup?


__relyT

Assuming you own a Kosatka... It depends whether you want active or passive income. Crates require actively playing but will pay better. Coke pays less but doesn't require work except for selling it. It's really personal preference, both are good options.


Communist_Cracker420

no I don't have a kosatka the only thing that makes me good money is my counterfeit cash factory


do_you_even_cricket

Are kosatka upgrades on sale this week as well? Considering picking up the Sparrow if that's the case


catmadder

I don't think the upgrades are discounted sadly


[deleted]

Sales change on thursday so you have today and tomorrow to buy it on sale.


do_you_even_cricket

Yeah no I get that, was just wondering if the sparrow is on sale as well since it's linked to the kosatka. Had a look earlier though and it seems not :( Will have to stick to the trusty buzzard for now


sh1ndlers_fist

Any reliable sources for car customizing information? Things relating to handling and how different customizations impact it. Just recently found out things like sidepanels, turbo tuning, and wheel type can impact handling on different levels and trying to find a good read or videos to check out.


Smavey

Broughy has a good YouTube video too on how these affect it. In a nutshell - stuff to the front of thr car will make it more front heavy, making it oversteer. Stuff in the back of the car like spoilers can make it understeer. So it's about finding the right centre of mass so that you have the most control.

HelpMeWithHeists

Stupid question: I’ve got $4530000, what’s the best car for races I can get with this money? Edit: lol, Just made it to 3rd place in Plummet race with my Entity XF, been an year haven’t been on this game. Another question: What’s happening these days? Has making money got easier? Atm, I have a nightclub, bunker, clubhouse and Office.

halborn

It's super easy to make money now because of the new Cayo Perico heist. The prerequisite submarine 'kosatka' is on sale this week so save your money, grab another million in a hurry and go buy one. After that, you'll be able to buy whatever car you want.


TheDark1

But you need to purchase a penthouse first, right? And do you need to buy the club at the casino too? What's the lowest total spend necessary to get the kosatka right now?


halborn

Who the hell keeps telling people this!?


TheDark1

Well it follows the logic of other businesses in gta, like if you want mobile command centre you need bunker, if you want terrorbyte you need nightclub...


[deleted]

You cannot "buy the club at the casino". It is just a new club for everyone to visit. And no, neither the Music Locker or the penthouse are related to the Kosatka nor are an impediment to buy it.


TheDark1

Thanks! I just bought the sub.


PooveyFarmsRacer

when it comes to accruing product in nightclubs or other businesses, does time spent in jobs like races and heists count towards in-game time, or is it freemode-only time?


JDBTree

Jobs et al do count. I believe the only time product doesn't accrue is during loading screens and mission/race setup menus.


PooveyFarmsRacer

excellent, great to hear


FrankTheWallaby

I want to say yes, but I can only *absolutely* confirm that time spent during the Cayo scope and heist **does** indeed **count** for accruing product. I've seen my Nightclub product increase quite a bit in long scopes/heists (checked before and after), and I've got messages from Agent 14 giving me updates to research progress ^(1)in the middle of scoping, ^(2)half way through looting the Compound, ^(3)while looting the Main Dock, and ^(4)while riding a getaway boat into the sunset. All pretty good indicators that the gears are all still turning throughout.


PooveyFarmsRacer

ah good to know, thank you


Fetzey

Jobs should count too, but I am not 100% certain.


IkarusHagen2

Can one tell me something about a 1.5 million dollar challenge?


PooveyFarmsRacer

not a "challenge," but the Cayo Perico heist nets roughly $1.5mil each time you do it when you get good at it, maybe a little less. could be what your friend was talking about?


IkarusHagen2

No, he read about it in the loading screen texts, maybe he misread stuff


EyesmokeD1andOnly

What challenge are you referring to op. No clue what you mean.


IkarusHagen2

Yes, exactly my question. I hoped anyone would tell me more, guess my friend read something wrong


justacalicooriginal

What?


IkarusHagen2

Exactly. One of my friends said that there is one but i couldn't find stuff about it


Fetzey

Can we still skip the cayo perico sabotage missions by finding a new lobby?


IkarusHagen2

You never needed to do them


Fetzey

Yeah, but I believe there was a Bug that it would still take away their armor n stuff then


EyesmokeD1andOnly

He means you can skip them.


Savings_Ad5617

Hey all, I just started playing gta online about 3 weeks ago. On the 8th or 9th of august I found out about the twitch prime rewards. There are no new rewards yet and I am still not able to claim the strawberry auto shop. Did something go wrong or was I just to late? (With the 7-10 days waiting time)


__relyT

I believe you have to link the accounts prior to the bonuses / rewards begin-date. Meaning the next time they update, those new ones will be available for you. Normally Twitch Prime rewards update every two weeks, but the currents ones have been available for at least three weeks IIRC, and the auto shop rebate began when the DLC was released \~5 weeks ago. But contact R\* support, it's possible they will still rebate you or credit your account for the base cost.

FrankTheWallaby

This is such a weird question. I can't tell if you're someone who played so much that they got every plane, boat, heli, tank, and non-car vehicle, played every heist, bought every unique business/property and just had nothing intertwined left to do? Or you started with Cayo and have no idea that there is a ton of things to buy that aren't cars? But either way - not having access to all the (unlockable) colors (which tell you how to unlock them) seems like the strangest reason to say you quit the game over.... Coincidentally, for JUST CARS, the new Auto Shop businesses allow you to use any of those locked colors, without needing to do the unlock requirements. But if you played mostly for 'everything that is not a car', those can't be customized in the Auto Shop, so you may not be interested.


[deleted]

halborn

There's nothing wrong with taking questions seriously.


FrankTheWallaby

I did, I honestly just couldn't figure out if you were extremely inexperienced, not knowing the other content existed. So I figured, it'd be helpful info in that case, or yeah - it'd come off a little overly serious otherwise. That's wild though, that jetpack, dorito, and valkerie are the top of your mains list. I usually expect Hydra, Pyro, and Buzzard, with more fun stuff like Phantom wedge and sasquatch coming in after the more useful stuff.

halborn

He's taking this only as seriously as you are.


bob_the_impala

> folors If by chance you meant "colors", then you should know that all vehicle upgrades (including colors) are available when you customize your vehicles in the new Auto Shop property (you can even do this in someone else's Auto Shop).


[deleted]

[удалено]


bob_the_impala

Well, I can't personally test it myself, as I have been playing long enough to unlock everything. However, as I mentioned, you should be able to test this out yourself by just driving one of your cars into someone else's Auto Shop and then customizing it.


bigb5555

The latest DLC isn't likely to excite you then. It included a bunch of new "tuner" cars. You can also purchase a new Auto Shop which is a "legitimate" business but also where you can launch "mini heist" type contract missions hosted by easily the two most obnoxious contact characters in the game. There's also a new Car Meet available where you can check out and drive a bunch of different cars.


Sangafox

what is the current maximum amount of garage spaces I could have if I gained access to all the buildings I could? I've seen it looks like we have a house/apartment limit of 8 but I'm not sure on the limit for some businesses. EDIT: I should add i found an old answer to this question but I think its before some businesses existed and limits were changed


ihavequestionsaswell

Uh let's see....80 spots for garages, 60 for office, 10 bikes for mc, 31 for NC, 11 total for facility (6 general), 1 terrorbyte (dedicated), 1 kosatka (dedicated), 30 AW workshop (3 dedicated), 10 penthouse, and I think that's it. So I think off the top of my head 234. Edit: whoops forgot arcade and auto shop. 254.


Sangafox

ah thats awesome, so still a long way off being able to collect all the cars! :(


ThorSif4444

why cant i headshot the minigun guy in the cayo perico heist?????


FrankTheWallaby

Do the Armor Disruption prep. I can confirm both Conspirator and Crack Shot loadouts can take down the minigun guy by laying into his head with automatics(assault rifle and ap pistol respectively). It's "like" a headshot still, you just hold down the button longer and adjust a little for movement/recoil. This works fine on hard mode, water contamination is helpful but not needed. The Disruption only takes about 3-5 minutes, water contamination 1-3 minutes longer on scope.


Running-With-Cake

The last update saw the Juggernaut buffed up to what he should have always been. The heist finale can be done without ever crossing paths with the Juggernaut


theaveragelutfi

try rolling him over from behind by aiming and rolling, and then, when he's down, just shoot his head until he's dead. It took like almost 6 bullets or something. I did it with a friend, but then the alarm went off

What can I do, when my money was disappear? I had 1+ million and when I login again now I have 0$ on my bank account.

What are the names for the songs playing in the persuit races? I love listening to them but can’t find them on radio or anything.


bob_the_impala

I don't know the names of the songs, but the new "Media Player" radio station is what is playing during the new Street and Pursuit races. To enable this new radio station in your own personal vehicles outside of races, there are four media sticks that you have to collect (plus a fifth bonus one): [Here's a photo guide for the 4 Media Stick locations needed for the Media Player :D](https://www.reddit.com/r/gtaonline/comments/oo0twa/heres_a_photo_guide_for_the_4_media_stick/)
