I used to farm coveted but only 4-5 plays at a time. i couldn't imagine doing that mission over and over for 21 days. i think i'd rather sit and listen to this for an hour. it would be less boring :lol:

I'm just going to go ahead and say it.

 

Thank god for Rooftop Rumble and GTA: Online v 1.01.

 

I am so glad I was able to get to rank 120 within a week of Online's launch so I wouldn't have to put in this kind of insane amount of work.

 

Good luck, though, OP.

Kind of a shame that that's OPs plans for the next 3 weeks. Im assuming he's able bodied, yet he chooses to live like a vegetable. Kinda sad tbh.

I've grinded out some missions.

 

But I would fail this challenge.

 

Good luck.

I like to blow up the dirt bikes and the suv's with my hvy sniper. The dirt bike by the container is usually one shot to the gas tank and you'll net 3-4 kills. I shoot the grills of the suv's across the cove until they catch fire and then continue towards the landing area to get those suv's cooking. The suv's will blow up in a matter of time taking out all AI around them. Makes the mission a little more interesting imo.

I'm against farming but if your gonna go to these extremes, I recommend the base invaders method I've seen people do on this forum.

Fly your plane to pick up a buzzard before going to the Ft. Blow up the lasers, find a specific camp spot. I have no clue what it is, then tape down the X on your controller, sit back and collect.

I think I read of a guy ranking up 60 levels over night with over 2k kills.

Or you could just play the game as it's meant to be played like the rest of us.

Farming Coveted is not the "wrong" way to play the game.

 

Never understood how people are against farming.  It doesn't violate anything, and Rockstar added the replay function for a reason.

It's because those same people tend to complain about how boring the game is because of all the farming.  I agree that it's not exactly "wrong" to play a mission again and again (I've lost count of how many times I've played Hood Safari in SP, for example), but, if the only reason you're replaying a mission is for the money and RP, it ends up not being fun.

If I do coverted it's usually 4 goes at a time to raise 48k, then sell a 9k car and maybe a Simeon car and another one or two goes on coverted, without too much time or effort you've got about 80k and a load of rep.
I think the most enjoyable way is a decent session racing with 4 or 5 mates

Just play as normal and dont jerk around in free mode. 21 days of the same mission sounds like a miserable time.

12. Get the container to the lock up.

 

in that time, ive already completed the mission. Plus actually shooting people gives you small amounts of RP plus raises your shooting stat at sametime.

wow you Really Really want that rpg and/or minigun ?

 

when i need some quick rp to get to the next rank, i will play coveted and potshot but repeating those missions too much will take fun out of it pretty fast for me, there's a few of the standard missions i like and most times you can select better paying / new from the lobby menu, might not be the fasted method but still notable and fun

 

when not teamed with greedy pricks (who most times will make it fail) i like survivals, havent figured out the exact rp scoring but its atleast 5k or more depending on your deaths, share of kills and obviously if you pass wave 10 (takes about 30mins)

 

 

for the money i normally start with my 2nd character who has his own 10car garage (331 Supply St), sell any car above 8k, switch to my main and sell a similar car, most times i will run into another 8k+ car before i have driven the short distance to lsc

*often when my garage does get empty and i see a oracle, baller or felon ill just park it in my garage, knowing when i go out ...there will be another and another and another .... ...

36 minutes * 2 minutes per run = 72 minutes.  

 

I usually help people farm this mission.

Tip: Listen to some music while you do it. You will probably go insane if you don't.

I guarantee you that you will quit this game before you reach day 7.

 

Why spend so much time doing that unless you have something in particular to buy? It's certainly not the best RP payout if rank is your primary concern.

 

Variety is the spice of life. Mix it up. If you're going to play - limit it. Maybe do 5-10 a day and focus the rest of the time on joining other missions or jobs that actually give you decent payouts for both.

Iv done coveted so many times I can beat it alone in about six-seven minutes you need to snipe about 12 people where the chopper lands ignore the other people they never shoot down the chopper and its all cake from there I would do other missions but nobody ever joins

6-7 minutes?? Not something to brag about lol

Free aim takes longer than spamming the trigger buttons....

Smg, assault rifle headshot is much better than sniper, as well as testing free aim.


Switching to free aim from assisted aim gives you more RP for Coveted? specially if ur just going to be using the sniper or heavy sniper anyway...

I'm willing to farm coveted with you :) that is, if you have it for Xbox 360. Been doing it for a while now.

I didn't think you could replay Coveted anymore? Every time I play it it always dumps me back out to freemode at the end of the session. I thought they'd done it to stop people farming it.

Spam the square button or the X (I think?)  for Xbox after you complete the mission.

 

Works for me at least.

Do the trick where you drop the container into the water (search youtube for this) and you'll cut off having to fly it to Martin's sh*thole lockup at the end.  Doesn't cut much off, but it's worth it.

doesnt work anymore
I did it just the other day
