I'm sitting on a little over 16 million. I'll front the cash for Goon heists but be sure that some assholes won't likely be invited back if they can't to the job. No one can afford to have people gently caress that up over and over at a couple hundred Gs per try.

I don't think it's a good idea the way it is laid out. It's too easy to grief.

Just think of the infinite bullshit Rockstar will have to read through from pubbies bitching that they want their GTAbux back because they were griefed and/or lost the heist.

The map is too big for that to work. You would go extended periods without ever seeing anyone.

They could make radar localized so you have to be within a mile or so of someone for them to show up on the map. It would be difficult to randomly find someone but you could pay Lester to locate them for 1min or something.

If they're smart, they'll have a roadmap to release new features on a schedule to last until GTA VI comes out.

A roadmap that turns out was folded the whole time. Unfolded, it takes 10x longer than expected to release anything.

Is anyone going to Heist on PS3?

Absolutely. I'll be spending as much time as I can heisting on PS3 if there are other goons to team up with.

I really want heists to be amazing and super fun and worth replaying, but at the same time it would be hilarious if they suck.

Okay, servers are down, so what has the Heist Update added to single-player?

It added more excuse to play single-layer while you wait for servers to be up.

PRISON BREAK PROTIP:

Always approach a live Velum from the left.

Otherwise, you get this when you try to board:



Similar thing happened to my crew last night. At the finale of the Valkyrie mission when the heli crew picks up the ground crew off the beach, the Valkyrie slightly tipped as it landed, shredding the ground crew to pieces.

Nobody wants to join my heist setups ever. I'm struggling to do Prison Break because of this.

Is there a goon crew on PS3? Or does anyone want to help? I'm on as Pentler, no mic I'm afraid

There's a goon crew thread. Also get a mic or else heisting with you will be just as bad as heisting with pubbies. I'll gladly play later on today though.

yo yo yo im fresh420prince and im good at heisting, except for hacking. im hosting the trevor heist tonight, and wil probably host the next one tomorrow

I'll heist with you again. Trevor heist kinda sucks overall but it's decent payout and still includes shooting dudes. What time will you be on?

I was busy this weekend, I hope that the novelty of heists won't wear off before I get a chance to join in. Definitely doesn't help that there are few of us left on PS3.


Holy gently caress. I love how powerful that is, but at some point I lost mine and I don't even know how. Any way to get it back?

There's still a group of us on PS3 doing heists. We kinda jump around what one we do each night so far. Feel free to add me (should be same name as forums) as I will be on all week doing heists occasionally. We are generally on starting at 7pm or 8pm central time.

You have to be the leader for the heist to actually count for you. But I think you get unlocks for simply completing the heists.

This is accurate. If you want to advance your own storyline of heists you have to host. To unlock anything like vehicles, you merely have to be a participant in the relevant heist missions.

I haven't had too much issue filling up heists but mostly because I join other goons instead of hosting.

I'm glad there isn't any real risk as host, but doesn't the lack of risk from losing kinda negate having a setup cost?

I've been trying to get through a single successful run of the trash mission in the series a heist for the past threeish days... I hate pubbies with such burning passion right now.

gently caress that mission. A single mishap and the whole thing starts over, no checkpoints.

I've had that same glitch happen to me when taking the Casco. Getting in and out does work but you have to be out of sight of the cops. Also, I've had it happen where we lost the cops and then as soon as we drove off (despite no police being around) we randomly got 3 stars back. Some rockstar magic.

This was the prison break heist and I didn't do any of the setup missions. I just don't bother to waste my time.

If you didn't do any of the setup missions that doesn't mean you deserve a higher cut in the finale. You didn't get paid to do the setup missions but you also didn't have to take the time to do them either. But the important thing is that the host gets paid a fair amount considering what everyone else gets IF they do the setup missions and finale plus they have to cover setup.

Basically all of Trevor's heist is just a copy of story missions. Not that I mind for the most part since they're still fun, but that means only 1 or two of the heists are actually new ideas.

Do heists from other people, not necessary to host. Also save up for whatever you think is fun. A lot of the new heist vehicles are amazing and awesome but expensive.
