Is this a serious question? It's when you poop in a sock so you don't have to get up from leveling your dude. I thought everyone had done this at one point or another.

I thought it might be that but I wanted to give those people the benefit of the doubt. Misplaced optimism I guess.

The only practical response here is a fully tuned Sultan. The Exemplar may be technically faster in a straight line on paper, but in any meaningful use the Sultan will beat the ever loving hell out of it and all other 4 door cars by a hilarious margin.

Oh, they are there, but cloned ones from hooker glitch days were flagged as non sellable.

A guy ranked 578 in this lobby. Is that genuine? It feels like it's taken forever just to get to rank 33, I can't imagine the hours put into getting to 578.

Very possible, yes. I've only seen an handful over 500. I haven't seen as many as I saw before they fixed everyone's rank and money.

Even if ranking is logarithmic as you get to the higher ranks, it's easy to jump 1 or 2 levels if you do several missions and a few races each day. This was in the old days, when they had double payouts and we ran Rooftop Rumble for pretty much 2 hours straight, I jumped 10+ levels in an afternoon.

Don't be afraid to host a job and invite us as well. Host something like A Titan of a Job (which is basically a snipe fest and you can run it alone). There are quite a few of us that will usually join missions if invited. Just turn off matchmaking and invite crew members and / or friends. Or if you want to do a mission that you cannot yet access because it hasn't unlocked just ask! Most of us are willing to make money help out crew mates.

For a while.

Some of mine returned to being sell able. Though I honestly can't remember which glitch I used to create my cloned Adders now. I do know that most were unsellable for a while but my most recent attempt allowed me to sell a few with only one failing, which I did shortly after buying the game on next gen. So its still worth trying them every so often. I think I still have 9 out of 20.

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


They weren't cloned, they were bought. Like my third or fourth session someone gave me at least 100 million dollars. Not only that but much of my time was spent grinding coveted. And that one really quick race in the aqueducts. I had it down to a science. Reliably I could get hundreds of thousands of dollars in an hour.

When I think about it I can't remember if my adder stock is sellable or not. Even then I'd rather they just sit there and earn money the proper way.

Also you can't poopsock if you're wearing toe socks. It's called a combat dump. If you're going to forego personal hygiene in order to play a video game, at least do it with some dignity.



Does anyone want to rob liquor stores with a helicopter, like the old days?

I managed to sell all 14 (on PS3) the other day and they were all glitched with dead hookers and modified with that needlessly elaborate setup that intercepted your garage app purchases. I figured might as well sell them, since they're not worth it as an insurance - if Rockstar ever decides to take money away they may as well lock duped cars from being sold again...

You either hold it down, or press once. I have it configured that if I press it once it takes a screen shot.

Left D-pad, to pick up snow, then choose your empty hand in the weapon wheel.

Digging the way how after some driving you get snow spray accumulation around the wheel wells and lower body. They did a hell of a job with this.

Not to deflate any balloons here but isn't that the same as dust accumulation, only colored white instead of tan?

While it could be poopsocking, it's more likely a product of the DNS hacks that were going around early in the year. One kill would level you up a huuuuge amount and drop millions in cash. Rockstar revoked most everyone's hacked cash, but left the hacked levels alone.

No, most people had their level reset to match their real earned RP but everyone who wasn't banned kept all their level based unlocks.

So me for example, I got up to 126 and then was reset down to 68. But I got to keep all my stuff like miniguns and RPGs and it really made leveling back up to 110 so far easy.

Still, you see people with levels in the thousands occasionally, which is bizarre.
