The only thing I dislike about them is they don't let you earn the color scheme changes with kills like other weapons. But they were great for training up my second account.

This is the Jam of the Year

The only thing I am upset about now is that there is no quick way to get back into another mission or even restarting a mission after completing it. I know why they took it away, but it takes way too long to get back into something else.

Actually, I never realized that when they normalized mission payouts, it went based off of time spent in mission. According to the wiki, every mission pays roughly the same but you simply need to run the timer up to 16 minutes to get the full payout.

But I guess that is just the way things are now. I am glad that I was able to get most of my money when it was a bit easier.

Is the Entity XF the best super car? Or is the zentoro better? I really like the traction of the entity.

On the moon... they don't make Neo Kobe Pizza.

Adder, Entity, and Zentorno make up the trio of race-ready super cars. As far as I know, all 3 of them have their own traits that help them stand out.

The Turismo R is up there with them too, not quite as fast as the Zentorno but it sticks to the road a bit better. I usually pick that or the Zentorno when doing races where I can't use my custom car.

Yeah the loading takes way too long. At least we had a hell of a gun fight today. Those poor bastard pubbies. Got into another one with Quicksand Jesus and encouraged several people to leave the session before I was plagued by network errors.

Yeah, I was wondering how a level 5 was "scoping" me. I thought I had wasted my money on the marksman rifle, but drat has it come in useful for mid-range quick kills.

But they show their true talent when they try to run you down.

I actually like all the super sharp angles on the Zentorno. I've always liked that kind of older supercar over today's modern curvy thing and the Zentorno is the only one of those in GTAO that's race worthy.

For people who may be interested. Gamestop is selling shark cards for half off. It can be worth it if you are starting out. Just make sure you buy the card for the right system. It differentiates between PS3 and PS4.

Can the Zentoro get comparable traction? If they fix turbos isn't it the same for either car.

And really, there weren't a ton of RP glitches through. I've been playing regularly since the beginning on and there were only a couple that people used, and they didn't last too long. Nothing like the money glitches - of which there will be more I am sure.

The only RP glitch I recall was on capture the flag where you could pick the case up and hover over the drop zone in a helicopter. I did that a couple times for about an hour and jumped 30 levels. That was quite nice.

I just miss the cash simply so I could afford to buy and sell cars until I found one I really liked.

I used that RP exploit where you could sit a Buzzard on top of some shipping containers in the Base Invaders mission and have it auto-target an endless wave of respawning soldiers for RP.

I think the RP glitch I used the most was the race one with one other person where you gained a lot of RP per lap.

I'm not a fan of the grill, the rear windshield or the rear bumper (since it's carbon fiber). Not to mention the oval exhaust that you can put on it. It's just not my style.

Some of the Martin missions you could hover in a chopper over his driveway to do the same. The capture ones were the easiest though. The sound it made was like a jackhammer.

do not but shark cards validating a f2p scheme on a game you already paid $60-120 is bad fiscal responsibility

There was the whole "mess with your network card and edit this one file to give yourself as many levels you want instantly" thing for a while.

It's kind of sad that Rockstar pretty much had to nerf a lot of stuff to make it this way. In terms of money, everything pays roughly the same, but it's the amount of time you spend in mission that determines payout. It's kind of poopsocky.

The American Dream in GTA Online is pretending you're really into doing missions and then when someone accidentally discovers that you can dupe Adders by farting on a stripper after doing a race and accessing the PlayStation Store you break that glitch for all its worth.

At the very least. Maybe job points will finally matter, making it difficult to even accumulate enough to do it more than every few hours.

That said, I look forward to the job point glitches forthcoming if that is the case.

Not a thing other than show you people in your lobby who've been doing a lot of missions. Which barely matters since they reset if you leave the lobby by changing sessions.
