Now in GTA when you commit minor offences you will be pulled over/ stopped and ticketed instead of gaining a one star wanted level.
It should be noted though, that if you fail to pay the fine on the spot/ do not have enough money/ run, you will then proceed to gain a one star wanted level and the police will come after you:
Assault of a civilian = $50 fine.
Minor car crash = the amount of damage you caused up to Unlimited.
Running a red light = $50 fine.
Driving on the wrong side of the road = $50 fine.
Shooting at random (not hitting anyone) = $250 fine.
Not pulling out of the way of emergency vehicles = $100 fine.
Running a STOP sign = $25 fine.
What after ticketing?
Well, after ticketing you will be initiated into the wanted process as follows:
*. Now that you have a one star wanted level local police officers will try and place you under arrest. The police do not have weapons and couldn't really care if they got the arrest or not.
**. 2 cars. 4 cops. They will call in their buddies to help bring you to a stop. They will still try and arrest you peacefully though they might hit you.
***. 5 cars. 10 cops. 1 police helicopter. They now will unholster their weapons, pistols/shotguns/smgs/ars/melee. They will threaten you and will beat you to the ground.
****. 15 cars. 30 cops. 2 riot vehicles. 20 riot cops. 3 police helicopters. They will shoot you if you fire. If you don’t have a gun then the riot police will beat you until you pass out then arrest you.
*****. 10 FIB cars. 20 FIB suvs. 40 FIB officers. 6 NOOSE suvs. 2 NOOSE vans. 1 NOOSE tank. 40 NOOSE officers. 3 NOOSE helicopters. It will now be their mission to kill you with all they got.
******. 30 NOOSE suvs. 5 NOOSE vans. 3 NOOSE tanks. 180 NOOSE officers. 5 NOOSE helicopters. You will die within seconds.
*******. 20 NG trucks. 40 NG humvees. 10 NG tanks. 400 NG soldiers. 10 NG helicopters. So hard to reach you’ll need a cheat.
NOTE-roadblocks and caltrop chains will be used during a chase. After you kill/destroy everything in the laws hands during the current star rating the next star rating will happen with a 3 minute interval to give the law time to get there. They will not just pop out nowhere and ram, instead they will appear at a roadblock when you turn the next corner for example. If you fire while at a * ** or a *** rating then you will automatically get a **** rating.
From time to time the DEA will raid your safe houses/warehouse and rid you of any drugs, weapons and will steal some of your money too. Raids will happen rarely and randomly.
You will receive an E-Mail /text from a gang member/family member to watch-out and they will alert you to the situation.
When they do a raid you will lose all your:
Cars in garage/ parking space
Border Patrol units will patrol the borders and waters of the GTA map and will stop you and search for drugs/weapons/incriminating evidence.
They have low grade weapons and they can call in the Police/Riot Police/DEA/FIB/NOOSE/NG at their behest.
Exactly what it sounds like. They protect the American soil.
Will come if regular police can’t handle the situation. Are very willing to go to any length to stop a bad situation. Have special equipment from regular police.
I will now go over the equipment below:
Riot Shield- This is used by the police to protect themselves from rocks, fire bombs, stones, chairs, anything. This limits the damage to them and could save their live. They can also be used as a weapon, to shove you to the ground and make it easier for them to arrest you, to smack you in the face with it. They are fireproof.
Fire extinguisher- This is used to douse the flames on comrades, cars, innocent civilians, and their vehicles. Although, you can shoot them and it will suffocate the officer in question they will not use this against you as a weapon. More of a tool to help them.
Retractable baton- These are made out of metal and deal more damage than the cheap wooden counterparts. The police will use these to hit you to the ground and cuff you. They will also use them in Charges against you and will lash out with them.
Tazer- Just like the one in Chinatown Wars, except used by the police! They will shoot at you if you get to close to them or you have a weapon. This will make you fall to the floor for 15 seconds, in which it will be easier for the officer to arrest you.
Riot vehicle- These are NOOSE (National office of security enforcement) cars and vans with mesh shields up the sides, grills over lights and siren, bigger bumper, and are totally black! The van will be full of Riot police and the car will contain normal police officers. These take a lot of damage, but are easy to set a light.
Riot Armor- Kind of like body armor. The police will wear padding to protect themselves from the shower of oncoming rocks and bottles. They will look like big fat hockey players. Only with shields and bats.
Pepper spray- Used in the officers constant charges. This will blind you temporarily by making the screen fuzzy and you will be harder to control.
Gang wars return from San Andréa’s not from the lost and damned. But slightly different, to start a gang war simply antagonize a gang for a few days then eventually they will come to your hood and retaliate. Then you just repeatedly attack until they give up, whatever part of a neighborhood or block you attacked you will get. Your fellow GSF gang members will start to hang out in and live in the neighborhood/block. Before a neighborhood/block is completely yours you have to repaint all the existing gang art from the other gang. Instead of taking over an entire neighborhood you can also take over blocks of certain neighborhoods. Different areas will light up different colors on the map according to whatever gang has which neighborhood block. A few major gangs will have a warehouse, but most gangs will use abandoned buildings/rundown houses. When in San Andréa’s you will meet people that you are able to recruit to the GSF. To recruit new members you will have to initiate them. Initiations can be anything from a drive by to a robbery. There are certain gangs that will be an ally or rival of you no matter what. But there are some gangs that you can ally with or rival against depending on how you act to them.

To start a drive-by find some gsf members and get in a vehicle pick whether you want to drive, be a front, back seat left, back seat middle or back seat right passenger, when you find some rivals get whatever gun you want and fire like you would when outside of a car, but no lock on, drivers drive, front seat passengers will sit on the door once the window is down and shoot in whatever direction and will sit inside when firing to the right, back seat left passenger will sit on the door once the window is down and shoot in whatever direction and will sit inside when firing to the left, back seat middle will either just sit and wait or when there is a sunroof will fire in any direction, back seat right passenger will sit on the door once the window is down and shoot in whatever direction and will sit inside when firing to the right, when in a convertible passengers will fire in any direction. guns can be modified. Guns jam and break after several in game months depending on the gun, 6-10 months. You can see detereation on guns after several uses, 10 and up uses. You can use anything from pipes to bricks. You can throw grab able objects including guns. (After all the ammo is gone) there are two different types of places to buy guns. The first is back alley stores; all they sell is illegal guns for a low price. The second being gun deliverers, they sell guns from their cars for rock bottom prices and only deal with known associates and friends.
