Anyone got that list of good missions you can do solo?

Chasers becomes a cinch to do once you get that micro SMG, the Blow Ups are easy and don't even given you a wanted level half the time, actually Simeon's missions in general are pretty easy with decent payout.

Jack Tripper's wingman.

Also, it should be stated how easy "Titan of a Job" becomes with a Kuruma as well. It was pretty easy to solo as it was, b'y picking off most everyone with a sniper rifle from a distance, then approaching the hangar.
Now it's 'tear in like a bat out of hell and murder everyone' from the armoured protection. Super easy, and a decent payout.

But in all honesty, the best way to grind cash and RP is "Rocket's vs Insurgents".

people bringing a kuruma on missions is possibly even more annoying than in open world. I was doing the building site thing and some shitlord did the whole thing from inside his loving noob wagon and kept running all the other players over while doing so

so eventually everyone else died and we had to watch him taking his sweet rear end time to finish the mission. gently caress that thing

This sounds like a pubbie problem, not an armored Kuruma problem.

My new favorite thing is helicopters. What order should I buy them in? I'm thinking Valkyrie, Buzzard, Annihilator?

The Savage has a nice cannon but the range is awful and it has a limited field of fire. Plus, like the Annihilator it has godawful maneuverability. Can you even use the nose cannon without a passenger?
The Valkyrie is somewhere between the big fuckers and the buzzard in almost every respect. It doesn't look as nice as the armoured one from the mission and is nowhere near as durable though.
I'd stick with the Buzzard for most stuff, honestly.

My only gripe with the Kuruma is that most assholes are jerking around the whole time, trying to run people over. You've got four people in the car with ap pistols, just sit still for like three loving seconds and we'll headshot a dozen guys easy.

The armored Kuruma is a bit silly, it makes a lot of missions way too easy, plus it really messes with the open world. You pretty much need one driving around which makes a lot of the other vehicles pretty pointless.

My favourite trick is baiting pubbies into blowing me up in my kuruma for a $1000 bounty.

I wonder if the armored Kuruma babbies would stop loving around with Kurumas if everybody else just went into passive or did jobs straight from the phone. Probably not, they'd probably keep prowling and patrolling around just in case other people want to have fun in Free Roam. Gotta get that YouTube footage somewhere.

I think the US is dumb for not using Celsius

I use the kuruma in missions if I don't feel like actually doing the mission because it's boring and I just want to get to the heist.

Just finished a free roam with some goons, showing off some slick cars. Then obviously had a pubbie come in a ruin our fun. We then did the only right thing and hunted him down for the next 30 minuets until he quit. He learnt many things like rockets don't work to well against insurgents and that i am a baddie for driving in a strait line. Also i learnt i probably shouldn't be in an aim assist lobby either.

Also if your thinking of picking up any form of military vehicle get the buzzard, Valkyrie or the insurgent pick up. Since the heat seeking launcher exists its incredibly easy to shoot choppers out of the air, though the buzzard or valk can be fun to do missions with. The insurgent is neat as it takes like 5 direct rockets to kill it, you get a cool mounted gun and sometimes pubbies kill themselves with their own rocket.

I had a fun moment taking an annihilator I found at noose (trying to spawn buzzard for the turn blind eye and cause havoc daily objective, got frustrated and decided to go on an old fashioned rampage) and getting up to five stars and mowing down all the police choppers that came after me before flying off victoriously into the sunset.

Starting at Noon PST I'm going to be running an experienced crew through the Criminal Mastermind Challenge (All the same people running all heists from Fleeca to Pacific Standard in order without dying) we have at least 1 or possibly 2 spots open. If you're over level 100, have completed all the heists, are confident in your ability to complete this challenge and have the time to complete the challenge in a single sitting, add me on Social club (Bob_Log) or be in Mumble around 12:00 PST and we'll go make lots of money together.

Yeah, it spawned soon after I got in the same session as you and I got in just as you pulled up. Presumably because you were in yours on the way because I'd spent hours driving past that spot with zero luck.
Thanks, now I have another bad gimmick car to bring on missions instead of a boring sports car.
