You've got to know the rules before you can break 'em. Otherwise, it's no fun.

if the stats I'm seeing are right (no promises, it's a GTA wiki) the Special Carbine hits harder, fires slightly faster, has better accuracy, and equal range to the Advanced Rifle.

I was talking about in game repeated testing. There was a long thread on the GTA forums about it debunking the special carbine. In practical use they may as well be the same though. The difference in actual time to kill is very small. Who knows if that is still true on current gen versions.

I just use the Special Carbine because that wonderful BUDDABUDDABUDDA it makes when it pops off.

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: Sweeper is the best, Combat SMG as a backup. 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.
  • MGs: Combat MG
  • Snipers: Heavy Sniper
  • heavy weapon: whatever
  • thrown: stickies

Hey thanks this is like exactly what I'm looking for.

if you can point me at said testing I'd like to read it. As far as my personal experience goes, the only AR not worth your time whatsoever is the AK. Everything else is an upgrade over that thing.

If you're on PS4 and in LLJK, once the online works again, look for my mission "Hella Copter Race 1" if you need some practice with the helicopters. It's the way I fly around in lobbies for fun, if the game had let me I would have had the markers so low that you would have been forced to go below bridges and underpasses making it even more fun, right now it's very very picky. Trying to figure out a Midnight Club route to make for cars now.

It also seems a lot faster at taking down helicopters. Maybe the armor penetration is better?

I keep losing connection due to network error. I can get on and get in a server but it will randomly drop. 5 minutes, 10 minutes, 2 seconds, there's no telling.

I can't get the Sultan to spawn at the prison, is this still where you find it?

For anyone who preordered from the UK PSN store, seems they have finally handed out the Online bonus cash. I just logged into a private session, got a notification about using an ATM to get money, and when I checked I was $800,000 up from when I last logged in.

It's only US PSN users who have to claim it from the store.

Sorry, guy.


This is the part of the night where I am THOROUGHLY confused.

Course of events:

1) Someone mentions their stuttering on PS4 got a little better after a Database rebuild. I do that.
2) I notice that GTAV is no longer in my most recent played bar of games on the dashboard of PS4.
3) I find it in my Library and boot it. It has to reinstall the patch I have had installed prior to my database rebuild.
5) Now it crashes every time I load the game, while still in the pregame loading screens.
6) I delete the game and redownload it
7) Several hours pass. The download and update claim to be finished.
8) (Where I'm at now) I launch the game and get the splash screens with a warning about making sure my system isn't set to auto power off in anything less than an hour. Bottom corner says "installing 11%" and is going super slow.

I don't recall this happening when I first played the game a few days ago.

[edit] Unless this was somehow all handled by the preload where it did this lengthy install before I ever launched it??


[edit2] Oh you know what, my bad, in Application Data Management it definitely isn't fully downloaded, despite what it tells me. Whoops.

I see these often up in the northwest corner of the state near the LSC where the semis usually spawn. Also just down the road from that where the purchasable properties are.

Another decent spot to find them is at the chemical plant on the north east coast and on the road leading to it.

I'm on PS4. The thing is, nothing was showing up under the PlayStation Store tab, apart from the six Shark Cards (looks like shmee described the same issue above) so I opened a ticket with Rockstar support. Looks like it got fixed though, the ticket says something was done about an hour ago and I now have an extra $800K in the bank.

Yes but I think patch 1.03 has been out for several days so who knows. However, I tried logging on just now and got in first try to populated server. I didn't stick around very long though so I don't know if it would've stayed online. But it may just be that at 7 in the morning and the servers are less burdened.

I am pretty sure 1.03 is the patch that came out yesterday to address "online stability".
