Is there a "best" for any of the weapon types? I would like to optimize my weapon wheel by dumping some poo poo, but I can't tell what's good or not anymore. Also it seems my Adder and Entity are missing. Thanks Rockstar.

Anyone else getting a lot of Network errors / alert screens? I don't know if it's R*, PS4 or my ATT at which I'm at 15 down and 1.5up - is that not enough?

Is it okay that I not fill out one of them until I actually get a Xbone for confusion reasons? I still pop into the 360 version from time to time for rooftop sniping or firetruck hijinks when I can't find PVs to cargobob.

You should be able to but there is no reason to. Just pick missions from the list and do them with 3 other goons, most all missions pay decently now and it's a lot more fun to have some variety.

Blow It Up II with a tank on hard for ten minutes of killing cops pays 20k and 9200 RP. If you have a tank and want RP that's the way to go. You need to kill over 200 cops - that takes around ten minutes.

That said, I need to rank up my alt. So if anyone wants to help...

Anyone else having trouble with the On Call mode for GTAO on PS4?

It searches and finds me a lobby, but each time the match is started it attempts to load me into the match and just errors me back out to single player.

Same. I tried it last night when I was having trouble joining a quick job.

So far, the best way I've found to join online is via the start menu, by simply joining via a random session. Attempting to join friends/crew throws out an error that a match couldn't be made (even when people are online). If you try though the character selection wheel it won't load for me at all. Kicks me back to SP.

I spend way too much money on computer parts.


After importing over my PS3 GTA:O character I realized he looks a bit like Burt Reynolds.


Not to miss an opportunity to run a gimmick into the ground I have decided to drive only the Imponte Phoenix unless forced into something else due to race requirements.

Of course that would happen to be one of the cars you can't buy from the various websites, so if any of my fellow LLJK Goons know an easy way for me to get a bunch of them (so I can paint them black with gold wire rim wheels) I would appreciate the assistance.


Of course someone already took BANONE for a license plate, so I had to settle for BANNONE. Bastards always trying to ruin my gimmick.

Yo geeves, I don't really see a reason for two GTA online threads. I think most people playing on ps3 now will be switching to ps4 or pc at some point in the future, and while it's sad to lose all of the history in this thread, your new op is good.

I will be playing on ps3 for a bit longer, and so are a lot of people in this thread. In the spirit of keeping the community together across platforms and generations, can you change the op to read something like, 'this thread is heavily current generation, however ps3 and future PC players are welcome.'?

Offensive Clock

Prat-falling in FPS mode is crazy. I used to be able to launch myself into people and windshields with ease. Lining up the launch has to be much more precise in first-person but the payoff is always worth it. I've done three Franklin missions and had enough money to buy a hammer. I may never finish story mode from this point.

Does anybody with a bunch of money on next gen want to test out crew challenges? They rarely work and are buggy on ps3, but there is some indication that they may be working solo on ps4 and xbone: http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/gta-5-next...-online-1475720

In the pause menu go to online, playlist, challenges, and see if anything comes up. The creator of the challenge will have set a wager, supposedly if you beat the time on their race you win the money...

Really? Why the gently caress would they not make those a destructible asset, the only reason I can think of is the same reason for telegraph poles and stuff which is to save on CPU and RAM but with all this next gen hardware it's extremely dumb to actually take that out.

they've made coveted longer, slightly harder to solo (not that much) and the changes to payout means almost any mission is fine for collecting funbux. Play anything, don't grind one mission repeatedly.

There's a lot of stat-identical or stat-similar guns, but these are what I consider the best:

  • Pistols: AP pistol is the best. Heavy pistol is probably the best semi-auto.
  • SMGs: Combat SMG and regular SMG are very similar, Combat is slightly better. Get the Micro regardless for drive-by purposes, sometimes it's useful over the AP pistol.
  • Shotguns: Assault Shotgun, but buy the sawed-off too since you can use it from a motorcycle
  • ARs: Special Carbine or Bullpup rifle (they appear to be stat-identical) - special note to the regular Carbine Rifle, which does less damage per shot but is more accurate than either, and the advanced rifle's high rate of fire.
  • MGs: Combat MG is the best - pretty accurate, lots of ammo. Gusenberg Sweeper is pretty good up close but worse at range but has lots of style.
  • Snipers: Heavy Sniper
  • heavy weapon: whatever
  • thrown: stickies

e: changed based on BitBasher knowing things about this game

I've been doing them for the past couple days on PS4, made a few million before they locked it to one crew challenge every 24 hours. They work fine - the highest I've seen is a $250k payout.

Online doesn't seem to be working now. It keeps timing out. Can anyone get on?

I only tried this today and got 250K by just racing 5 laps on Criminal Records. It claims I got the world record too, so I unlocked some stuff it seems. Took about 2 minutes, totally worth doing one of those per day.

That was one I did too - Criminal Records. I did one of my primary, and one of my alt - they both count as separate tries so you can do two a day that way. I believe crew challenges don't unlock until rank 5 though.

The game's world record keeping has been hilariously broken for me for weeks now. It says every lap I do is a world record and most other peoples' too. Some guy came 2nd behind me and it said he got a world record. It was kinda funny at first and I got that rare tattoo out of it but now it's a bit annoying.

If you can vouch that he is a cool guy and won't shoot crew dots or be an rear end in a top hat in general (that is reserved for me).

edit: Either someone pruned the invites or he hasn't requested an invite because I'm not seeing it. I also tried finding that name and it doesn't exist.

Most of them were always destructible. They are still destructible in the places that they were previously as far as I can tell. Immediately to the left of the west entrance where personal planes spawn is still destructible, as is at the end of the road from the LSC and the fences to the right when pulling up to the right entrance at the terminal, but that one is hard to hot reliably.

They're still destructible by the beach I think. He's talking about entrance to the left (by the SP flight school). That one has been updated. You can still squeeze in between the fence and the jersey barrier at the "jump" entrance.
