While I haven't spent a lot of time looking for it, I'm assuming it does not.

The gang cars that spawn in the projects east of grove street do work on last gen.

Imagine how much more sad and lonely we would be if not for the hard work of lowtax. Here's $12.95 to his aid.

Tweaked out gangcars spawn on current-gen, Gallivanter and other valuable cars became rarer with the christmas patch that increased vehicle variety massively, started seeing windowed vans on the streets for the first time ever.

Here's something I didn't see:

Don't use the option to refill all of your ammo in the pre-mission lobby. It sometimes overcharges you and you really don't need 9,999 rounds for your sniper rifle. Just top off your weapon-of-choice and explosives when you go to refill your armor reserves.

E: n/m, I did see that you said not to buy ammo from the mission screen. But yeah, seconding all of that poo poo you said. Also, if you have to blow something up, hand grenades will usually do the job about as well as blooper rounds, rockets, or stickies and they cost a lot less.

I enjoy first person for loving around with pedestrians but while trying to achieve anything remotely serious (grinding out jobs for funbux, trying to get a car to LSC/Simeon without destroying it, dot hunting) I stick with third person.

I have had some hilarious times joining first person locked jobs without realising though.

Yeah I didn't even know this was a thing last night because whole I'd turn sure show flight helmet on my mask that I ALWAYS wear was keeping me from putting it on. My only regret/request is that they tone down the visit tint in first person. loving impossible to see things at night but it's cool.

For anyone else having trouble getting that modded Dubsta to spawn with the one intersection method, I found a video with a slightly different method for it and after trying the first way a hundred times, this one worked for me first time (though I haven't been back to get a second one, yet): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMUBL-EcxlI

My Dubsta didn't show up until about 12:00 in game, but my friend was waiting in the same spot and got one as well. I just sat in a Baller I had stolen from nearby and parked in the driveway in the video and sure enough, here comes the Chrome Dubsta.

I already have a Dubsta 2, does it need to be a chromed-out one for this to work?

What it means by that is poo poo like super cars or very expensive base normal cars. Since these gang cars are regular sellable cars, but with mods, they can still be sold.

When pubbies take my cars during missions, it makes me irrationally angry. I really love playing in first person mode, but I swapped over to 3rd person view while in cover and it's made me die a lot less during missions. I really do hope they flesh out FPS mode for whatever sequel they have planned, poo poo is so fun despite being a "tack-on" in GTA V.

For your first one, I don't think it matters, but I don't know about his supposed "100%" method for driving back up with another Dubsta 2. In the few hours we tried it again, we drove up there with the chromed Dubstas we got earlier and were able to get one to spawn every time. Oddly enough we also got one outside of an LSC randomly; don't know what that's about.

Set your car to passenger only when playing with pubbies. If you're really lucky you'll get to watch particularly stupid ones get in and out repeatedly, unable to comprehend why they can't jump in the driver's seat.

Different custom vehicles sometimes spawn outside mod shops now. I've so far seen sabres and a rat loader. The dubstas are still by far the most valuable though.
