K guys, some tips for those looking for max profit, first is the best
DO NOT shoot the goons....seriously. Walk up to them w gun in hand, and pistol whip them. Right in the face. All of them. They will do nothing until a gun is fired. Or are otherwise startled.....which is hard to do, i was showing this to some friends that were skeptical, and i accidentally ran into one knocking him to the ground, so i just waited till he stood up, and broke his eye socket in front of him and 3 other dudes. They did nothing.
Goons dead, documents dropped, w not a penny lost for ammo. Seriously. SERIOUSLY.
Now be aware the suvs only come when the bag man hits triangle to hop in a car. I bet you could run all the way to Martins, but thats no fun. Use this time, if needed, to decide how to get there.....call in a heli, call mechanic for a fast car, etc.
Any decently fast car (sports/supers esp) w a competent driver can make there no problem. I personally have never failed or been killed, nor have seen anyone else, unless the car was slow and the driver got it stuck in a tree or something...... I never felt the need to call in a heli and blow 1k. Also not sure why someone would call for pegasus heli whent the time spent driving to it could be spent driving north.
Ive also been in quite a few missions where the carrier would tap triangle to call out the suvs, with everyone ready n waiting on foot, and take down the suvs when they come. I have no strong opinion on this method, its effective, but it takes an extra minute or two.
I use mainly auto shotty, maybe auto pistol and/or a rifle. No need for grenades/rpgs/expensive artillery, they only increase the odds of blowing up the documents.
Also note that during the mission, you cannot get a wanted level, so have some fun if you want, rob stores, attack the gsf and ballas, etc......not sure if the army base can entered.
If im not in the delivery car, i love to drive up n down the canal, using the sides as ramps, jumpin over the train bridge and thru the trusses of the road bridge. Make a nice car ugly real quick.
