Does anyone still use the actual ATM machines in the game or like me, do all of your banking via the phone?

i visited a atm like 3 times during the first 2 days of gtao, then i discovered online banking.

online banking pretty much void the need to visit the atms.

right now i dont even bank my money that often, since i discovered that the max someone can mug you is 2k regardless of the amount of cash you have in hand.

Yeah I think the ATM machines are pretty pointless too.......the last time I used one was when I was around level 3 - I shot and killed one of the in-game pedestrians and stole their withdrawal as I was hard up for cash....I'm level 118 now so that was a long time ago! I could imagine rockstar doing away with them being useable in some future patch maybe..

I always use the phone, the ATMs are pretty pointless, although it is quicker to use the ATM than it is than it is to use the phone if you are next to an ATM at the time. Still, the ATMs are a lot better than the ones in GTA IV, which were 100% useless.

I don't know what makes them "a lot better". They're still as useless as they were in GTA IV.

Sad how they put so much more effort into them for GTAO.

I wouldn't be surprised if they removed the online banking feature so that people would use the ATMs more often. :p

I do..sometimes.
I usually just use the web browser though because it's more simple than driving around searching for one.

Maybe saying 'a lot' better was a bit too much, but I remember in GTA IV, all they did was show how much money you have, which was on the HUD anyway, it was even on the HUD while using the ATM so it was kind of stupid.

 

EDIT: Maybe it was not entirely stupid as it would have been useful for players playing with the HUD off.

What do people want? People said they should be able to use ATM's in older GTA games, from GTA IV onwards Rockstar have allowed that. ATM's still exist in real life even though you can still check on your own phone on the account details.

 

It would have been cool however if Rockstar allowed the ATMs to do a money transfer between the main characters, my Franklin is always the poorest, would be cool if Michael could spare him some cash.

For the first week or so, I would race like a madman to make a deposit before I got smoked...lol

 

Then my son told me there was a way to deposit on the phone...I never looked back ;)
