Is it just me or is $5000 a hell of a lot to pay every time you die? I play with friends and whenever we mess around I see my bank balance decreasing rapidly.

 

I don't like turning autosave off because we keep finding hidden items.

 

Do you think it is a lot to pay? I'd personally like to see it reduced a bit!

Hint: People with less cash on hand pay less for medical care. If you invest most of your money in a safe stock like Ammunation, and only keep a few thousand on hand for walking-around money, then your medical bills will be much, much lower (like $35).

 

Think of it like fraudulently using Medicaid. Yet another crime simulation!

The ammount you pay is a percentage of total cash on hand, however it caps at 5k.

I started doing this too. Makes a HUGE difference over time.

5k is nothing. I'm glad they capped it at 5k.

I think they designed it thinking it would add balance to risk and reward. However, after having played thru the story at least, there should be some kind of way to counter that. Because, let's be honest, it's after the story ends that players are going to stop playing it safe and start doing the really stupid stuff that's likely to get you killed. And that's exactly when it becomes the most difficult to recouperate any losses. Who wants to piddle away their millions on something as insignificant as dying?

Then put your money into the Stockmarket Pitch, seriously there are ways to protect your money, you just have to take advantage of them. Dump it into Ammunation, as far as I can tell that stock never goes down, and your millions will be completely safe there.

I think it's a good amount of money because in the other GTA's the player was always in the open (mainly because you couldn't dive into cover) and was really hard to die. But in this game, they make it so that you have to use cover a lot in order to survive

Well, GTA IV was 10% with a $10000 cap. Now, it is only 5% (roughly) with a $5000 cap. Rockstar already toned it down by 50% from last game, I think that is more than enough, especially considering the multitudes higher bank account you possesses in V compared to IV. At 5k per visit, it will take 200 deaths to lose $1 million. Now, considering you should have about $20 million each minimum at the end of the game, that means you should easily be covered for about 12000 hospital visits, pending other purchases along the way. Five grand is just fine per visit, that is chump change in the grand scheme of things in V.

At least they lowered it from the $10k in GTA IV. But I wish you could pay for health insurance instead though.
