Within the past week, when it became clear how pervasive this situation is, of gifters making it rain on everyone in freeroam sessions, and I saw the $1B and $2B bounties being set, I decided to play more freeroam and get my share of it. Really, getting the money is a game in itself, and it's fun to see how it works. More fun than grinding for $K's.
So I dropped into several sessions over a couple of nights and got gifts of $99M, $170M, numbers like that, and accumulating that kind of money (got up to $700M) would keep me going in GTA0 for years, I assumed. But I decided to make more of a game of it, and join the billionaire's club.
So I got into a little pattern of going into freeroam sessions passive, and hanging around the utter mindless chaos and tank wars in Vinewood, so I could watch the massive stupidity while I waited for dollars to rain down. Of course every little sh*t would empty a few clips trying to kill me, or try running me over in their tanks or cars; easy to avoid and fun to watch them fail.
The sessions would start to get more of the money men late at night Pacific time. after about 6 tor 7 sessions of entertainment, I got a $2B bounty on me, but got killed (because, though passive, I was in a car heading toward the action) within 3 seconds before I realized I had it, let alone enough time to swap sessions to wait out my bounty and claim my billions. So I put a meager $9K bounty on the gifter, to make him think I was righteously indignant at being bountied and of course deeply outraged that a hax0r would be "ruining my game," and before too long, he was passing out more millions. As soon as he gave me $995M, I got out of the session as a newly-minted GTA0 billionaire. And here I am.
