The single player mission where they rob an Armored Truck was fun, but the online alternatives are bland.

The movie "Heat" also has a good Armored Truck scene.

 

Here is another one from the movie "The Town".

Rob them whilst wearing a blind-fold.  That should amke it a bit more challenging.

it;s definitely way too easy

but than again nothing in this game really gets complicated

any possible challenge comes from the insane AI shooting skills.

 

maybe they'll do a proper armoured truck robbery when heists come out

here's to hoping

You can always do it that way if you want to.

 

If I'm feeling it I sometimes do things the "realistic" way, how you said for example walking to the doors and placing it rather than throwing it, then take cover and blow it.

 

Throw in a good costume and mask for extra "feels".

 

What you want, is already kind of there.

 

Also, you can do the Heat style takedown on the free roam trucks, you just get about 3 minutes to plan and gather all the tools you require.

I'm definately looking forward to the upcoming online Heists. I hope they require some form of planning, unlike the current store robberies which are also too easy.

That was dumb of them to kill the 3 security guards.

Yea man, stealing money is one thing, but murdering them brings unwanted attention.

You can do it in different ways.

Get a big truck at chumash/paleto, chase the armored truck, block the road and stuff.. Just use your imagination

One the armored truck spawns, how long does it remain in the game? or how far does it need to get before it disappears? It seems like there isn't much time to plan.

that's kind of the point of the movie

they have this new guy or last minute replacement or whatever and he goes a bit haywire during the heist

aaah i didnt know that you could get the cash by simply blowing up the doors...

i had like 13 trucks since october and have done them like i did in the story.

blocked the truck, killed the guards, place sticky, take cover, PROFIT!

now gonna have to wait a couple more months for armored trucks to show in my game to try out this new method.

My lord. If we died three times trying to blast the armored car then it would all be about how Rockstar is making it hard to make money so we can buy the cash cards. lame.

The "heist" experience would be more rewarding then a few bags of in-game cash that would be spent just as fast as it fell out of the truck.

I agree.

 

But it is what it is..   Try telling players that sticky bombs should be placed and not thrown and they will loose their damn minds.

Rockstar should make it so that stick bombs don't stick to Armored Trucks when thrown, and must be placed for them to stick.

Well to be honest they should not be thrown.  They should be placed.   Thats what those types of bombs are.

So you're saying it's too easy? And you're saying it's crap? And your ONLY suggestion has you going in the back of the truck to pick up the money instead of the money falling out....

 

OH YES, how did no one else think of this.... going in the back of the truck would make is SO MUCH MORE 'AWESOMER'!!!!!

Those were suggestions on how to make it "feel" like an actual heist. Currently we can simply drive up to the truck, throw a sticky bomb, the truck drives off, but the money falls out. So yes, it's a CRAPPY HEIST IMO. But you're obviosly just trying to be a douchebag.

well you'd at least have to stop the truck

now you just chase it in your car, blow it open before taking the money and driving off.

 Why do people jump all over players with they make good points in this forums.

 

The guy posted clips from heat and single player.  I think he just wants more of a realistic thrill to it.   Its pretty obvious from his post style and comments thats what he means. It is rather dull online how stickies and armored trucks work so smoothly.

 

As it stands its... Pull up, toss sticky, back up, BOOM, grab money... drive.   Barely 2 seconds.     Its so easy i can rob 25 in a row by going around in circles when it starts to spawn glitch.

I dont mind the way it is. I like things to be a challenge but not all the time, so if it stays the way it is for the forseeable future then I would have no problem with it.

To easy? If they where any harder, nobody would even bother with them. At most they have about 2 to 10k inside them lol.

any harder? they aint even a tad hard. They should bump up the difficulty and increase the payout. The Armored Trucks are boring and repetitive. Why are so many people waiting on heists? they want the complexity of them, the big payouts that require a little bit of skill. Armored Trucks could be alot more fun than they curretly are IMO.

Enough of this anti-throwing sticky bomb agenda.  Sticky bombs were originally designed to be thrown but with litte success.  Look at the size of the thing in the game - it is perfectly reasonable that they should be throwable.

you don't have to use the sticky's, block the truck with your car, run back and blow open the doors with your shotgun.  The one star is a whole lot easier than the three it used to be, but you could kill the guards and/or wait for the cops if you feel like a proper chase...

 

But when you're in a hurry and just want the money, it's nice to just sticky, grab, lester, done.

Stickys are not supposed to be thrown.. Hence, if you think they should be your a noob..  or just plain dumb.

 

Take your pick..  Nothing personal man.  But i called it and you nailed it.

So what ever.
