Thank you to Bisticlz who made my night wonderfully murder-riffic and many pubbies evenings a horrid mess by telling me about that.

I've seen fun you people wouldn't believe.
Tiki torches on fire off the summit of Kilauea.
I watched disco balls glitter in the dark near the Brandenburg Gate.
All those moments will be lost in time, like crowds in rain.

Time to sleep.

Generally I just let the pubbies provide their own stickies for this, but I've done this too to great effect. The count for pubbies that have blown themselves up trying to blow up my Insurgent is around 36. I think my favorite thing is when a pubbie has an rpg and they're firing it on my while I do a 3-point turn and then proceed to run them over because they couldn't get off enough shots in that time. That's only happened like 4 times though.

That's great - the other day someone was firing RPGs at me and got killed by another car they blew up that landed on them.

Can you call it in on missions, like you can with buzzards?

A goon and I were randomly rampaging around in separate Insurgents a few days ago and we both tried to run over the same guy at the same time and he essentially blocked me from getting the kill. I thought the guy might even survive in a little triangle created by the two insurgents and a wall.

I relented and ended up buying a High End apartment, at level 9, right before you get to own multiple properties. Dammit. Anyway, I'd like to find some goons to do the Fleeca heist with, also, do any properties come with a helipad or hanger?

No even though there is one on top of Richards Majestic.

Best case is to get garage on Exceptionalists Way by the airport. Then you're a quick drive to the airport pads. If you by chance bought Alta St, you're also very close to the heli pads at the La Puerta Docks.

I'm a fan of the garages right near those, the ones on Greenwitch Parkway. Theres a little back way that puts you right out at the los santos customs, and you can get to the airport pretty easily as well.

Could be a connection thing. I constantly have NAT and connectivity problems(on PS4), and I am usually always dumped into solo lobbies because I can't connect up with anything or anyone.

If it were me--and it has been--I'd go Kuruma first and burn through missions and heists with it until I could afford the other one. Both are good for loving around in freemode from what I understand but I don't have an Insurgent or even a Technical yet (still need to do the heist for the former smh)

I like that you can use it to do Rooftop Rumble via remote play in about 3-4 minutes, and then if you want to kill time to take over 15 minutes, for some reason after collecting the documents, police never spawn, so you can blow a buncha poo poo up for funsies.

You haven't noticed yet that a whole bunch of missions by design prevent cops from spawning? If you want to basically do free roam without other players or cops, most Lester and Gerald missions have cops turned off, for instance. High Priority Case is definitely one that prevents cops from spawning.

Also during deathmatches, if you can leave the main deathmatch area you can rob any Ammunation cash registers with impunity so long as you have a weapon with ammo to shoot the registers.

Thanks freshprince (still not sure of your SA name yet) for the help with my very first heist . Drilling is incredibly hard, so sorry about that ineptitude. I also don't know why the receive volume was so low, all my settings checked out fine so who knows. I'm really glad this heist only required 2 people, as participating in setups with other pubbies is utter hell. I should really get a BT headset sooner or later. It's rather cheesy typing in lingo from the early 2000s.

I have both. Kuruma is way better for missions/heists, Insurgent is fun for free roam though. I love just building up momentum and smashing into other players' cars with that thing.

Definitely don't buy the Insurgent with the gun, no garage storage or customization and it always spawns miles from you.

The armed insurgent is great, with two players its got the most pubbie smashing power of any vehicle since the days before the tank got totally neutered.
