OK found a fast way to level strength solo in GTA Online. I am on PC.

Confirming that this absolutely works. Spent 20 minutes punching mans and went from 50% strength to ~80% strength. Gonna probably max out with one more round.

Playing the Station side of Prison Break and the idiots on the car retrieval, which should be loving easy...

Goddammit I kill a bunch of cops, lose my wanted level, get into a police station, and then fail because some dipshit did I don't even know what. Again.

The last straw was when they both committed suicide.

The station side is actually much easier for me than the car retrieval. I don't know if they ever fixed the bug but pubbies and easily screw things up by attracting the cops.

Also, decided to take a trip down the west coast with my kraken in order to lose a bounty. That was a surreal experience especially when it turned dark. Downright freaky at times.

Sticky bombs on a passive motorcycle are my new favorite thing. We had to have killed this one guy 20 times at least. The people we killed were chasing down me on the motorcycle instead of my buddy who was detonating the bombs. The best part is the bombs stick inside the body work on the Bati so it's impossible to see until it's exploding.

Little hand says its time to rock and roll.

A hacker teleported into my car's passenger seat, kicked me out of my own car, and then drove away with it.

A few moments later, as I was wandering around trying to find a car in order to give chase, he teleported in front of me and shot me with three million dollars.

I feel like this encapsulates the GTA online experience.

Thanks for the strength rising tip, got from almost no strength to max strength in a jiffy. Sure it still takes the 2000 punches, but it definitely felt easier and faster than anything else I've seen so far.

The creator mission is the way I pounded out my strength to max. I'm also stupid enough that I grinded out my lung capacity bar to max.

Just 1/4 of a bar left for shooting and I'll be done with every skill!

You can't enter or exit submarines underwater, can you? That would probably make increasing lung capacity almost fun.

Also, near-unrelatedly, does golf still increase your strength somewhat? I'm past the 80 mark, but I can't be bothered to punch any more random NPCs. Rather play 30 rounds of golf.

I've used my Faggio a few times for passive stickybombing. It's hard to see the bombs if you put them on the floorboard or behind the legshield. And if you drive a Faggio and wear clown facepaint, I guess some people think that you're not the murdering sort. Plus, the Faggio is very easy to drive into shops and other establishments. I did a clown suicide attack on the strip club a few days ago and blew up some dudes hanging out there. I also put a proximity mine on their car that was parked outside. That was a good day to be a clown.

Pretty sure you can at least get out of a submarine underwater, not sure about getting back in. I remember drowning after getting out of the sub to get a closer look at the north coast UFO.
The easiest way to grind lung capacity seems to be the stay under water and snack to keep your health up method. Though supposedly the diving thing works too.

Golf does improve your strength, about 20% of a (little) bar per full round is where I clocked it. I heard the single hole trick no longer works.

They've probably changed / patched it since I maxed out my lung capacity in the month-or-so following launch, but how much time you spent underwater used to mean a lot less than how many times you went underwater. I went from about 5% lung capacity to max in about 40 minutes by just going under and immediately surfacing.

I am not sure on this one. I did mine by diving off a dock, staying underwater until the bar ran out, then surfaced. Climb back up and dive off, rinse repeat.

Mondian posted:

I wish I knew. I focused on driving and flying, but I've been shooting like there's no tomorrow and it's sooooo slow. Also my driving and flying skills randomly jumped up to 100 from 70/80 when I logged in one day, so there's that.

Maxed strength, stealth and lung capacity so I now have max stats. Maxed lung capacity by swimming/diving around the middle-southern pier island area (two times to go from 20 -> 100). 'Twas dull but that's a suitable job for a dull man.

PC? Play with a bunch of Goons. We can load a bus with goons, and cargobob it to max altitude for skydiving shenanigans.

Or just add me (AngryGreek). I'm always flying around so happy to do pickups so you can repeatedly jump to wherever.

ASK ME ABOUT MY TOTALLY REALISTIC ZIPLINE-BASED ZOMBIE SURVIVAL PLAN & HOW THE ZOMBIE SURVIVAL VIDEO GAME GENRE HAS BEEN "RAPED BY THE MAINSTREAM"


I can't decide which pistol is the best. It's an obvious choice to the min-maxer who would pick the AP pistol but this isn't the case.

I'm trying to decide which of the semi-automatic pistols are the best. It seems to have boiled down to the Desert Eagle and the Heavy Pistol (the heavily modified 1911) as far as range and damage go. The thing is the Deagle has a slightly higher damage but the 1911 has a much higher fire rate, but only on foot.

In essence I'm trying to figure out what other people think and use when they feel like rocking a pistol just cause.

The flare gun is loving hilarious. it's the only gun I like to use when I go pubby hunting. More or less because it's hilarious to both parties, I get way less of a rage reaction and my KDR goes up, win win. Everyone knows flame weapons would be awesome but would ruin the frame rate and crash servers easy. So they hid molotovs around the map and gave us the flaregun.


In all seriousness I'm talking you're level 150+ so any gun you use would be effective and you feel like using one of the various magazine fed pistols that aren't automatic. Almost sort of a roleplay kind of thing. I dunno why I feel like the game is more natural when I only use pistols, shotguns, explosives and sometimes SMGs. And the flaregun of course.

I'd say it boils down to looks for your pistol of choice. I'm pretty sure they're all equally effective if you've got good aim. If you don't, then rate of fire is more important than damage.

epsilon-6
Dec 25, 2002


I don't understand why anyone would use anything but the AP pistol. If your aim is good, you'll land multiple shots and have a guaranteed kill. I guess if ePenis is your goal, use the default pistol and only that?

Edit: seriously if you don't care about effectiveness, why not use the most basic pistol?
