Im really interested in this new feature of opening car trunks. I was thinking now, maybe the character will have to put his weapons in the trunk. Or even dead bodies.Or even have missions where you capture people and throw them in the trunk to drive them to a specific location rather than killing everyone all the time.

List your thoughts about this feature.

I remember that True Crime: Streets of New York had this feature it was all right. And hopefully it will cut down on floating weapons in streets.

Putting a live pedestrian in the trunk and then dumping the car into the water would be awesome, but I'm thinking that you can put weapons, cash and stuff in there.

Maybe we can store weapons in there? Maybe in GTA 4 we will only be able to carrie two types of weapons at a time. This way you can buy every type of weapon store it in your trunk and when you wan't to change weapons you just go to your car. Might not do much when your car blows up though.

I was hoping that Niko Bellic could have his own car/taxi that he can keep. What I mean is that a car should be worth more. Rather than just a toy you can pick up from the street. You should actually be able to keep your car on the curb at one place, drive to do a mission, come back and the car is still there on the curb at the exact same place. I wanna be able to park cars.

About the trunk, you should be able to keep weapons and accessories etc. in your trunk. Maybe a spare tire, if your tire gets shot. (that'd be actually pretty cool. Once you're safe, you get out the car, open the trunk, pick up the tire, carry it to the flat tire, press L1 to switch tires. the screen goes black for a second, and it's fixed.) Maybe you can also keep binoculars, a camera, and other accessories in your trunk that you don't necessarily use.

(A very extreme possibility is that you can only conceal small firearms like pistols or machine pistols. Then you gotta go back to the trunk to get an assault rifle, or rocket launcher, whatever. But that may be a bit too far from the traditional GTA we're used to. I dunno)

This is the second post I've seen you make and I love you already!

I've often though about this. Cars should be worth more. Not something you just ditch and find a replacement. I hope to put money into a car and that will be my car. People will associate Niko Bellic as the guy that drives that car. The car I put all my hard earnings into. The car that says 'hey!' 'you scurlatch (scratch) my car, I kill you.

So is the trunk thing confirmed? dontgetit.gif Hell yes if it is! colgate.gif

Great ideas all so far.
I'd love to see ybakker's concealing only small arms and having to carry the larger ones in plain view.
Maybe they can have a compromise - you can pick up and not use large weapons like RPG's, but they show on your back on a strap.

However, car should also be 'disposable' to an extent. Your own flash car should not be though - unless you want it to be. Also jacking cars should be more difficult and risky like in real life.

I'd love to use a crappy Perenial I bought for $800 to carry $250 000 I stole from a bank to a safehouse, then take it to the car crusher with a person who saw Niko's face tied down in the trunk.
Later you have to buy more expensive cars to lure enemies into car bomb assassination attempts.

Also tak into consideration that other people put stuff in there trunks as well, so if you steal a police car, you find a couple of guns in the trunk, or maybe even a cop uniform.

Wasn't S.A supposed to have opening trunks too? I saw a trunk open in one of the screens for it. It included a spare tire and a basketbal.

You should be able to store your weapons inside the trunk of vehicles and dead bodies as well then dump it.

I just had to do it. So, may I present -- Dead Skunk In The Trunk..

back on topic though: i think the trunk should function as a "locker" of sorts, but only for the big items and maybe mission related stuff too. Although since police "presence" is alot more prevalent this time, I could also see the trunk doubling as a temporary morgue. I just hope they utilise it somehow someway. A few measly missions sprinkled throughout the last gen. just wasn't enough.

I think trunks in cars being used would be awsome good for stashing those extra guns your person can hold on you or those suitcases full of cocaine to take to a drop off, or a silent murder in the alley way and stuffing a bodie in them to take to the bay and drop off to avoid a star for killing some one, just a few things this feature could handle.

It would be funny if there were taxi missions where you had to get out of the cab to help patrons with their luggage.

It would also be really sweet if you could find stuff in the trunks of cars like a dress and then you can put it on and wear it and you will become a pretty lady.

I was thinking the exact same thing. You would have to conceal a small-arms weapon, such as a pistol, or possibly an uzi, underneath your jacket, or anywhere else on your person. Then for special occasions and missions, you pull out the shotgun or the assault rifle, maybe even a bat for "persuasion" from from the trunk of your car (a car you bought, carjacking should be riskier this time around, having your own would be beneficial), when a job requires more firepower to get it done. I hope this is implemented.

I already see missions that forces you to use car trunks. Carrying a bazooka? Maybe. Rockets? In the trunk. The car goes boom, the rockets go boom. I see Lance Vance opening the trunk in Vice City...
-"Whoa, where did you get this stuff?"
"Been saving for a rainy day..."

I love visualizing carrying 250,000 in the trunk of a run down car. That would mean that money is an actual "physical" commodity. If you want to pay off or receive money, you actually have to carry it around, and you actually see your money. This would make sense when robbing or being robbed. This also gives more reason in keeping your money safe in an ATM. If its a large sum of money, then Niko could use an item like a dufffle bag to carry the money around. He could also use it to carry large guns too. If they can make it so trunks hold physical items, then they can do the same with duffle bags.

Placing car bombs in the back of the trunk would be so fun. If you become good at explosives, and are sneaky enough at luring in your enemies, then you should be able to take them out with a bomb nearly every time if you wanted. It would cost alot of money for the bombs and cars, but it would be an effective assassination method. That goes for mission and "self-enriching" activities.

Putting bodies in the trunk would be just plain fun. If you were good at body disposal, you could keep the heat off you for almost every hit you pull off. It would take planning to get your target in a no witness area, kill him silently, and dump the body at another location without anyone seeing. I also think well see at least one allusion to Goodfellas if we can place bodies in the trunk. Anyone whos seen that movie will know what Im talking about.

How about using the trunk as a shop on the black market?

Park your car down an alleyway and soon some low life will come along...

"Hey man, you got a 9 milli?"

Become an entreprenuer on the black market...

Left Luck just hit the nail on the head for me. The truck can also be used to store some weapons and even some "fun" items.

Fun as in, basketballs, foot balls, TVs, Body Armor, ect.

It would be great if it would be context-interactive, as in, you could rig your car full of explosives (and by full I really mean a lot, like those car explosions you hear on news). Or, remember the fact that Houser or someone said that less arrows and non-realistic guiders would be used, since we've got GPS. Holy crap, ever heard of GPS trackers? That's right, you could bug vehicles, rig them with explosives. Or store stuff, like many people have mentioned, or even a bear trap or killerbees.

But this idea of mine I'm totally pumped and excited about: what if you'd have a mission where you'd have to blow some kind of installation/building? You wouldn't have to raid the place with your bomb car like some mindless ass (like you did to the San Fierro crack factory in San Andreas), but you'd have to find an empty "insider car", rig it full of remotely-controlled explosives and a tracker (to know when to blow the sh it up), and voilá.

EDIT: Whoa, this idea is even more awesome. What if Niko could smuggle himself into enemy territory by getting inside an insider vehicle's trunk?

Trojan vehicle...yeah, man! Anyway, vehicles should work like they did in Scarface wear you get a driver to get the vehicle you want and a free henchman with it. And in the trunk is anyweapon you have boughten before. (since the game was stupid cause you could only hold THREE guns)

yeah most likely it will be for weapons of stuffing bodies in. Maybe smuggling people across town. Its pretty obvious it will be for these things. Rockstars shooting for realism this time and this is probably the main way you will carry your weapons. you'll probably be able to store all your weapons (or most of them) in your trunk, and then choose the ones you want to use. Thus making the way you carry weapons more realistic, and no more in-hand spawning.

I also think it will play a major role because they said (or atleast rumored) that stealing cars wont be as easy as just running up to them anymore. That you will have to stealthily sneak up to it and break in. I think, because it will be harder to steal cars, maybe there will be a feature where you can buy cars and own them. Thus making your garage and homes more useful.

You know what i think it's for apart from the obvious? Well you know in the other GTA's where you collect so much hidden packages you get weapons sent to your safe house and they float outside it. Well if rockstar dont want floating weapons then you may have the option of the weapons going to your trunk where you collect them from there. Imagine how cool and how rewarding it would be to just collect a load of packages and you get to go to ant trunk of a car your driving to pick your weapon you've earned
