Why does no one grint this mission instead or also beside Rooftop and Coveted?

The payout is good and its a very easy and quick mission.

 

$17250 on Hard

Apx. 3000-3425RP

Level 70 given by Trevor

Takes around 4 minuts in total

 

The first time when you start the mission you start it from where you stand, the second time you start at Trevors place and have a 30 sec drive to the start point.

 

This misson has been buggy before and it still is but if you don't arrive at the meth place before the shopper has landed there will be no problem. If you enter the stage before the chopper landed properly (in the video below it works but it won't 9 times out of 10) it will never recognize that the chopper landed and the misson are not possible to finish.

 

Try it, you will like it!

No its $17250 on Hard every time, not the first time. What ever happend to that by the way, the double pay-out the first time you play them. The new missions from the High Life update does not give me double pay-out. Is it just me or is it removed?

This actually looks like fun, gonna probably try this tomorrow with my friend or solo, also looks like I'll be able to use less ammo.

 

Just gotta make sure not to drive like a maniac.

One of my favourite missions. I'm surprised when I host it and people ask if this is one of the new missions.

Fastest way to do this is call up a buzzard, go get it from Trevors airfield, land near the buggies and get in and out again. GET TO DA CHOPPA and follow the police helicopter

Shh! No giving away my secret quick way of making cash in GTA.

Just to add that you can arrive at the Meth lab but WAIT for the chopper to
land before you go in shooting and you can snipe them all from the hill or
hit all the cop cars with the minigun for quickness.

I'm surprised I've not seen more invites for this mission.

I always get to the meth lab before the chopper lands, never had a problem with failing the mission.  I'll be careful in future!

The cops follows you on this mission are totaly harmless,

I like to smash the cop later on the road with the car then he is definitly out of the way!

They don't follow anyway? I just see one cop I think on a bike and he doesn't even follow me. Maybe I blew up the car that follows or something but I usually have a carefree drive.

There is a Granger SUV with SWAT guys which spawns after you get in the Granger
with the equipment but if your fast enough out of the lab they don't follow you.

I know this mission like the back of my hand. I always arrive and start shooting before the chopper gets there and I've never encountered any problems whatsoever....   ...??...

If you park a personal vehicle across the area where the target granger spawns, it will spawn on the other side of the house instead, which will save you some time if you have a 16x playlist etc (if you're doing it with a friend). Also pegasus vehicles may work.

Yup, Chopper Tail is a good mission, most folks don't play it, but enjoy it when I introduce it into the mission rotation. 

Defender is also a good one, but some folks just don't like to fly choppers.

Extradition is another one, and for the folks that don't like to fly choppers, they might like to fly the hidden Lazers at Sandy Shores Airfield

it is a contact mission. so, no.

Good to know...I always get too excited and crash the buggy, or get it stuck on some rocks

I love this mission, I actually drive the buggy to get my buzzard. I go ahead of the chopper to blow up outermost cop cars. A lot of people don't like to grind it with me because it's not a two minute mission.

This. Cargobob while team goes after the chopper, then pick up the Granger and fly to the drop off.

High priority case is another ok one
Zero effort- steal documents. Loose cops. Drive to martins. No resistance but the cops
13k after 1st time

I don't grind the mission, but that one is so fun ! I wish I could see it more often via Quickjob or invite.
