Blow It Up II with a tank on hard for ten minutes of killing cops pays 20k and 9200 RP. If you have a tank and want RP that's the way to go. You need to kill over 200 cops - that takes around ten minutes.

That said, I need to rank up my alt. So if anyone wants to help...

Anyone else having trouble with the On Call mode for GTAO on PS4?

It searches and finds me a lobby, but each time the match is started it attempts to load me into the match and just errors me back out to single player.

Same. I tried it last night when I was having trouble joining a quick job.

So far, the best way I've found to join online is via the start menu, by simply joining via a random session. Attempting to join friends/crew throws out an error that a match couldn't be made (even when people are online). If you try though the character selection wheel it won't load for me at all. Kicks me back to SP.

Cool, thx man

Does anybody with a bunch of money on next gen want to test out crew challenges? They rarely work and are buggy on ps3, but there is some indication that they may be working solo on ps4 and xbone: http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/gta-5-next...-online-1475720

In the pause menu go to online, playlist, challenges, and see if anything comes up. The creator of the challenge will have set a wager, supposedly if you beat the time on their race you win the money...

I've been doing them for the past couple days on PS4, made a few million before they locked it to one crew challenge every 24 hours. They work fine - the highest I've seen is a $250k payout.

Online doesn't seem to be working now. It keeps timing out. Can anyone get on?

Soooo, I just did a mission called 250k that was on Criminal Records. I easily beat it, and then won like 10,000.

I can;t double check now, but it either messed up or I failed to notice it was NOT actually for a pot of 250k?


Lastly... question: Who actually funds these?

Maybe it wasn't actually 250,000? Did you do it alone? You have to run these solo or you're competing with everyone else for the money.

When you are in the challenges screen, and you click on the details make sure to double check that the payout is 250k.

The only other thing I can think of is that you didn't have 250k to bet with? You needed that to start.

I'll run Blow It Up II with my tank on PS4 for anyone who wants to join in to rank up. It takes about 10 minutes total - you have to kill at least 200 cops and you get about 9200 RP and 20K in class. To compare, most missions don't pay more than 5k in RP.

Yea, PSN: Thaxxas

Is joining friends working better than joining crew members? I've tried constantly to join crew members and one of three things usually happens. I end up on a server by myself, I end up on a server with one other goon and he's either afk or doin his own thing or I get into a fairly full room with a few goons in it and get an error message and dropped within 5 minutes of getting in so I've been entertaining myself by running missions solo in the buzzard I bought this weekend.

Friends SEEMS to work better in that you'll get dumped into a lobby with friends automatically when you connect. I've had the exact same scenario happen as you - in a lobby with Goons and people start dropping before I can even hook up with them in free roam. I think I am going to set my spawn point to last location so cut out the bullshit of getting out of my apartment once it decides to load.

MrLonghair posted:

Oh

I'm the best helicopter pilot I've seen and come to think of it the only reason the few tank invasions happen is because there's nobody with a Buzzard around to easily safely take them out. Just that I'm a million rockstarbucks away

I'll be around this weekend too. I usually get on weekends when my son is napping, so like 12:30-4ish and then at night after 8:30 for a couple hours.

Regarding tanks in free roam, I saw one a day or two after launch on the PS4, but can't remember the last time I saw one on PS3. As soon as they changed the icon on the map to match that of a tank that just about killed it for people.

so how does Blow Up II work for this exactly? You go and move the Banshee out of the line of fire, destroy everything else, repeat x200 cops, then turn in the Banshee?

Yup.

Back the Banshee behind the building in the parking lot, behind the dumpsters. Destroy all the cars, kill cops for around 10 minutes, go grab the Banshee and call Lester to remove your wanted level.

They spawn continuously - you could do it for as along as you want and they don't stop going. 10 minutes or so seems to get you around 200 kills which is when you get the 9200 RP. Going longer doesn't seem to get you any extra RP.

The only problem with this is I don't have a tank, so I'd have to buy a tank and then run it ~75 times to break even

I tried it with a Buzzard and it's doable, you get money (not 20k) but the police helicopters are a real pain in the rear end. And if you move around to get rid of them the ground cops don't stop and bunch up.

Ah, yeah...that is a bit of an issue. Are you on PS4?

Run the crew challenges for 250k on your character - your alt too if you have one. They get access at lvl 5 I believe. If you do it once each with them today you're half way to a tank.

Then you can focus on the RP in BU2.

If I remember right NAT type 3 can't connect to NAT type 2, only NAT type 1. Type 2 is by far the most common and Type 1 is the least common. I would think that if you were on NAT type 3 it would cause a lot of issues in a mesh network game like GTA where you are connecting to up to 29 other dudes. I would think it would exclude you from most games and cause you issues.

E;FB

I never had an issue on my PS3 with GTA: - it's just been since this launch. I only looked initially before I realized everyone was having the issues that I was having. Last couple days I've been in full lobbies, I just get booted everyone now and again. Better than it was, definitely not as stable at it was on the PS3.

The Simeon stuff actually pays decently now so if you set it to hard you can solo them and still make decent money and RP.

Another thing I thought of is if you are able to find a wall breach (check YouTube) you can hide out in one with a five star wanted level and gain RP while you evade the police. I can't recall how much you get, but it you just keep killing police while you're hidden, you won't lose the wanted level.

They seem to have fixed a few of the wall breaches from last gen, so I'm not sure what's left.

So, I spent the next 30 minutes taunting them and attempting to get "down with the block," and gain some "street cred," with them. Alas, I am merely a "stupid rear end in a top hat cracka that is as low as bird poo poo." I am a horrible person who deserves death..

In a team deathmatch like that, don't be - aggressive hide or find high ground. Just try and survive and hope your team wins. That is all you can do a at lower level when the teams get stacked like that. Especially when they are timed and not target-based.

Yeah, Rank doesn't really matter much any more thanks to the DLC weapons all being available at Rank 1. Why grind up to 70 for the Advanced Rifle when you can hit missions or even just decently populated races for half an hour and buy a fully kitted out Special Carbine?

All it really matters for any more is when full Body Armor unlocks, and some of the more useful call-ins like Lester removing you from the minimap, getting rid of your wanted level, or dunking on people with a one-two punch of setting Merryweather Mercs on someone then having Lamar's Mugger knock them over in the middle of being shot at.

I hadn't even thought of that - the DLC weapons really are a game changer for the lower levels.
