"Cops n Crooks" was about the only ranked match type I played on GTA IV when I wasn't free-roaming. And as seen on sites like Reddit.com, it was one of the most beloved and requested match types. Has anyone seen this match type yet? I haven't. It's actually very disheartening.

Apparently its available for 30+ ranked players in GTAO.  I'm 26 so I'll know soon enough. I cannot believe how low ranked the general GTA population is.  I was online about 2 days after everyone else cause I wanted to do SP right, and within the next 2 days I was in the top 10% rank of all the people I play with.

I hope you are right about CnC. I don't see how it fits though, as everything I've seen so far is played with your custom character. In IV, this was not the case for Turf War, CnC and the Co-op modes, where you didn't play with your personal model. As for the reason there's a low average rank I would suspect is a lot of people have had their characters mysteriously vanish/deleted due to some technical problem with R*'s cloud, as yet unknown/unadmitted. I was at rank 19 when I lost mine and not feeling particularly inclined to go through it all again at the moment.

I'll take CnC over this any day. You know that feeling you get when you hit a plateau in a game and you think, "What now"? Now that I have my nice apt. and some cars, I kinda just wanna lose myself in CnC and forget about the rest.

They were very detailed about it in the build log. It's most likely one of the updates planned for the future.

Well the way I see it is that just because a few idiots like yourself didn't like it, it is no reason not to have it in.    Was one of the most popular modes in gta iv, and Rockstar better be putting it or something better in soon.

i'm pretty sure it's in one of the mission match types. you can actually get some real interesting modes. i got a match that was called bodyguards vs assassins (?) or something like that. it was an 8v8 matchup and i was on the bodyguard team driving the limo, whilst the other 7 were seperated in the two cars aimed to protect me. one followed behind and the other lead me in front. it was all done like a genuine bodyguard setup. sadly we lost, but it was great fun and real intense.

Not true. You are thinking of the Crooked Cop mission in GTAO. In Crooked Cop, you are separated into two teams with the goal of one team stealing and delivering some package from someone and both the opposing team and the LSPD attempting to stop you. Being only level 28, I haven't had the chance to play it yet (or maybe I can't find it).

 

However, there are a few Youtube videos on it - keyword: "few". It seems that it's not as popular as the beloved "classic" Cops & Crooks mode in IV Multiplayer.

 

As for the original question (Why no Cops & Crooks?), Rockstar likely took this mode out in order to sell it to you afterwards. It was arguably the most popular mode in IV Multiplayer, I don't see why it was not expanded upon in GTAO.

Because Rockstar doesnt want to look like IV because SA fanboys whined too much that it was too boring.

If it is DLC, does that mean there won't be a lot of people that bother to buy it?

Cops N Crooks was an amazing mode in GTA IV.  But after people play it for a while, the getaway spots were all known and the cops would just run to the getaway spot and either destroy the getaway vehicle or wait for the crooks to arrive.  I really hope R* fixes this by completely randomizing the getaway spots so they can't be predicted and force no flying vehicles available during that mode.

Cops and Crooks is probably coming. But not the way you expect it. If you played Cops and Crooks in GTA, you should probably know about LCPDFR. It's a mod for GTA4 that allowed you to become the cop (lcpdfr.com). I'm surprised that of all the people that use this mod for GTA4, none of them have said anything about this Cops and Crooks mode coming to GTA5. And besides, if they were gonna add a Cops and Crooks mission like the one from GTA4, honestly it would probably take less than 4 hours to make it (maybe longer depending on how many alternate routes or drop offs there would be). But Rockstar has had countless hours to have added this in, or complete it. Which leads me to believe that this Cops and Crooks mode is going to be way more in-depth, and it may even tie in with Heists, but i'm not gonna get my hopes of about that one.

Apparently they added more stuff back into the game relating to this mode. I really hope it isn't cut from the game! LCPDFR is the only reason I play GTA4...

 

Also: This code and the images were found the same way everybody found the other DLC's, so more than likely it's real.

Don't know, but it needed bumping. Why no one ever talk about what was the best game mode in town?
