So I was just playing and thought I'd do coveted since I havent played it in awhile, the first time I tried it the cargo bob thought it was a cool idea to do a damn barrel role while I was trying to pick up the crate, mission fail #1. the second time I tried it, a guy shot me from like 400 yards away and killed me, mission fail #2. The third time I tried the cargo bob landed, I started shooting the rest of the guys and what do you know, mission failed. Anyways, are people still failing missions for no reason what so ever? I though R* fixed that problem?

Lol. Jk. Yeah, it'a bit harder but playing with friends/crew makes it much easier.

I had a mission fail because someone died... was like two days ago. Was weird. I was about to complete the mission and notta. Just said oh well. Did not think too much about it.

You didn't fail for "no reason whatsover". In your case, the first two are obvious. The third one, not so much if you aren't aware of the changes to the mission.


It sounds like you failed to clear the landing site of bad guys before the timer ran out - that's a thing in Coveted now. You can still snipe from the hilltop, but as soon as you get down to that first car you have 2 mins to get all the way down to the LZ or you fail. Markers light up and pop-ups tell you this. Anyway, the best way to do it is still to snipe every last bad guy before you set off down the hill.


Also, it appears that you are getting into the Cargobob with bad guys still alive. Don't do that - there is no rush to complete missions now - if you take a little longer, you get paid more. If you take your time with Coveted, not only can the payout break 20K, but you stand almost zero change of failing.


There's one more change to the mission, but I wouldn't want to spoil your "WTF?!?" moment.

Did they fix all the mission fail bugs in rooftop rumble with 1.16?. Or did they figure if you stop people playing it they can leave it broken?..

RR is still broken.  I wish the squeakers and other assorted turdblossoms would quit playing it, or at the least, quit blopwing up the 2 cars that arrive at the end.  f*cking scrubs keep doing it and borking the mission.


sh*t mission anyway.  I hope R* remove it altogether.

Coveted is a badly revamped mission just to clearly show Rockstar don't like you making legit money as well as proving them they didn't do a good play test.


Btw, just stay uphill with sniper. You have 2 enemy down right at the beach with boxes; they have RPGs. There are another 3 on the left where the cargo is located. Then across it, there are 2 parked Grangers with 2 or 3 enemies. Next to it, there's 1 enemy standing beside the box. When you are done, snipe the guys around the corona. These guys were designed to trap rambo players who will run to them and fail to clean them up before the time is out.

Since they nerfed it,I've played Coveted 3 times. A few friends played it with me after the change and we got a "Mission Failed" just before delivery.Great job Rockstar.
