I enjoy Trash Talk.  I am getting tired of the "Mission Failed: A Crew Boss was Killed" glitch.  Maybe R* trolling glitchers lol :lol:

You or others are killing him too early/ quickly then. 

Wait until he starts running around and you shouldn't get that issue. 

As for Coveted, have at least one other person do the mission with you. When the first one starts (if doing a playlist), call Merryweather and fly to Sandy Shores, calling for and picking up a Buzzard Attack Chopper. 
Using this for all of the playlist whilst the other player goes for the Granger (after nabbing that first kill) should make it very fast, roughly 4 minutes from start to re-start inclusive of all the waiting screens etc. 

Simply park the Buzzard on the hill where you spawn to ensure you can use it in the later missions.

Nope, he is running when I kill him.  It doesn't always happen, maybe 30% of the time.  I've had it where I killed him in the same point 3 times in a row.  1st 2 times no issue then 3rd it failed.  This was halfway down the dirt road, right by the tree.

Exactly this, snipe the first guy an then get the granger down the hill as fast as possible to spawn the Bob. 

 

You don't even need to snipe that first guy. I just run down and quickly pop him in the head with a pistol shot. Or if there's 2 of us, I'll just get in the Granger and start driving and let the other person melee him from behind.

Interesting, must be a new one since 1.13 as I only rarely encountered that one beforehand. Must be a damn nuisance to have gotten that far to simply fail.

It sucks, but I do enjoy the mission so it doesn't bother me a lot.  Pisses my brother off though lol. 

 

I might start trying to grind Base Invaders for a change.  Haven't done that one in forever.

Even before the 1.13 patch, a 16x Coveted playlist was a faster way to make money than RR. Anyone saying otherwise is a dirty liar.

The only advantage RR had, was the near double boost in RP. But seeing as I'm around Rank 275+ now, I haven't cared about RP in a long time.

 

Although I never did a coveted playlist, I was able to do RR in a clean 5 minute cycle with 2 people, this was before 1.13 ...

How long does it take to complete the 16 missions in coveted?

 

True about the RR vs coveted RP award. If you are a lower level, it will take a little bit longer to level up with that silly amount of RP.

Level 120+ capped to 8000, exactly what is the point in that?

 

I still get thrown in FR servers with players under level 10 even though I deliberately raise my MENTAL STATE to max by attacking other red dots. But these guys are white/zero and are being hammered by vicious 200+ level players.

I try to summon these nubcakes to a coveted mission or whatever to give them some dollars, but often they dont join, or when they do, they quit half way through the mission.


I'm laughing at the people sniping at on coveted, so much time wasted. The helicopter only spawns when you get to the objective so get there as fast as possible, don't waste time sniping.

 

Can you make a video and demonstrate exactly how you complete this mission? Interested in this tank in a playlist though.

You shoot that guy? Just smack him in the face, not behind, no ammo wasted.

Tell me what you play. oh go on, its nearly June 2014, must keep in the mission fashion.

I can complete it in anywhere between 56 and 60 minutes, from pause menu to free roam, netting $288,000* in that hour.

 

 

*unless the mission decides to fail itself, which happens around 1 in 100 times it seems.

Why nobody chooses mix up with coke???? Its 2.9krp and 13k cash. Use a buzzard end in 2mins... no ammo or armour needed... solo. If 5 guys join u for fun, 4k rp.

RR is still the best no doubt. 5 mins solo. Now the issue is spawning point, either u start without a car or u are too damn far. Buzzard will solve it tho.

In a team, thats where the bugs fly. I can only do 5 consecutive rr in a team dunno y.
Mission fails from then on. Its either the regular mates left, some new hero tries to blow up the last 3 cars, or everyone dies...

Coveted is easier but makes me mentally breakdown, it's incredibly dull and boring.

Takes 4-6 minutes to get a buzzard. Not worth it.

I just wished that the people who want to fly the chopper in coveted could actually fly instead of crashing it into the cars and ocean. :/

Rooftop Rumble. Because it gives you more RP, and I want RP instead of money.

 

I lol at people who don't play RR since the new nerf, "It's too hard", you must really suck at the game.

 

After level 120 it doesn't really matter.  The thing is, not everyone chooses Coveted over Rooftop Rumble because of the nerf.

 

At what point did I say they choose coveted over RR because of the new nerf. I'm saying since the new nerf, the people who used to grind it for RP  + $$ have stopped playing in since they complain it's too hard.

I haven't been able to do RR since the update cause somehow the document always ends up getting blown up, I've just been sticking to claiming bounties since its easy and fun. Coveted is just as easy as always too so some of dat as well.

Yea I don't get why RR always ends in mission failed for someone blowing it up? I didn't even know you could blow up any collection items.

But why anyone is using explosives is beyond me, the money you make is mostly lost replacing the grenades/grenade launcher ammo you used.
The smg is just as effective.

Rooftop Rumble garage = Assault Shotgun. 

Seen how cheap that ammo is? Probably not as cheap as others but at least going crazy with an automatic 12 gauge can add to one's "fun".

Coveted playlist with a tank works like this. The longest one will be the first one as my buddy has to get the tank, I start the mission, get the cargbob, fly to his tank, pick him up and then resume the mission. From then on the Tank stays on the cove, wherever my buddy was when I delivered the container.

 

He basically blows up sh*t, I run down (which is the longest thing in the mission) grab the cargbob and away i go. Mission takes two minutes. We did the 16x playlist very quickly. We did f*ck up once as the container was apparently blown up despite it looking completely fine.

It takes me 62 to 64 minutes. I might fail 1 in 100 times due to stupidity.

Whats the point of the tank?  Sounds like he just uses it to blow up sh*t while you pick up the Cargobob and complete the mission!

We've all past level 120 and don't care about RP anymore

Are you saying you can do the 16x in 32 minutes? I don't think this mission can be done in two minutes. I've got it down to a science, trigger the bob asap and be in it before it spins down. No way to speed up the bob trigger and arrival, and it takes somewhere between three and four minutes. I've never timed it with a stopwatch, just have a digital clock in the room.

 

Two minutes is an obvious exaggeration. Video?

Coveted can be wrapped up in 3 mins solo and isn't buggy. Nor does it have a car to chase that is coded to explode from a couple of bullets.
