Just drop GTA6 already.

Its weird cause this is true yet my 1 year old computer struggles to keep this game at 1440p 60... if I drive a Sanchez through the weeds on Cayo it becomes a cinematic experience

As long as they still support custom radio stations, I'm just gonna go with a greatest-hits-of-VC playlist anyway.

Not sure where this came from, but realized one of the things that I really like about GTA online compared to the millions of other online open world RPGs is that overall it's "fair". Your character doesn't rely on weird gimmick builds, or a real progressive system where higher level players have more perks at their disposal. Yes, there are differences between a level 10 and a level 100 but for actual gameplay those end up being slightly different regen rates, and a pretty miniscule difference to your HP and base armor. It's not like a level 100 has double fire rate, or different attack sets(fire vs necro vs nature in a fantasy world for example). Weapons are the same across the board, vehicles are the same. If you get owned in Los Santos, there is literally nothing stopping you from picking up that same load out to try for yourself. The only real thing that stratifies players is money, and that's only a temporary thing anymore.

Agreed, this is the only game I really play so I donít have a lot to compare against, but itís always seemed way more fair than most games I hear about.

There is also no reason to believe that account is actually the hacker, it looks like someone trying to bait people into paying them crypto. So far it has only reposted tiny snippets of source code that were originally posted on gtaforums.

i like how one of the playable characters in the leaked footage appears to be the famous 'florida man'. no doubt his crazy antics/hijinks will make trevor's shenanigans seem comparatively tame. hey, rockstar may be losing the war against hackers but they're easily winning the war against ludo-narrative dissonance in open world crime sandboxes.

If nothing else, itís pretty quick payback especially on sale.

6-8 mini contracts. Each is 2 prep and a final, they can be solo easily. All are about 175k, one pays 300, each should also take less than an hour total. All of them have first
Time bonuses of 100? 150k? So doing these once apiece youíll be back to positive cash flow

1-2 customer car spots. They get dropped off w a spec sheet, you mod them for free and then driver to get paid

Thereís also a new variant of Simeonís wanted cars, list of 10 on a blackboard, each pays 20k, clear the list and get an extra 100k

For car mods, the shop bypasses mod level limits for chrome and rims etc

In addition to bypassing modification level limits it also gives you a flat 5% discount on all mods and lets you respray with 'classic' colors or your crew color for free. It's a good way to see what colors look good with what.

Of note with the wanted cars: the $20k is a flat payout, no money taken off from damage, you get no wanted levels when you take the car, and there's a map marker when one appears.

I've done a few of the contracts and I kind of hate them (of course I did the Lost MC one and can't be bothered finishing it), but just modding and delivering vehicles is a nice way to make a couple bucks with 5 minutes' work.

The bank Union Depository one's a lot of fun once you get it figured out and know where to park the getaway car(s) (the northeast-ish spot is super easy to get to)

/e: fixed because I forgot about the one where you rob a bunch of banks

Yeah several of them are kinda rockstar bullshit. Union depository is the 300k job. Mini fleeca is robbing 6 banks, and mini prison break can be cheesed using a bulletproof car lol. The rest I typically skip on, other than doing em once for the bonus

I hadn't gotten any for like a month or longer after that update, but then I suddenly started getting them again and I think it had several queued up that I was "owed" because I'd get another as soon as I delivered one for like 10 times in a row.

Ugh, the ECU mission.

Drive-by snipe 4 brake cylinders on a moving train while everyone and their cousin tries to shoot you.

Luckily, the Auto Shop mission board lets you select between three contracts and a quick call to Sessanta cancels the current contract.

You have to be outside of the shop, but then you can call and cancel. There definitely at least appears to be some rarity levels to the RNG on what you reroll, but after a few you'll usually get the UD on the list again
