I think they did it because the Buzzard method made those missions too easy.

Just like they patched that crate mission when you have to chase down 4 cars to see which one is holding your stuff.

 

Before you could just set your gps to special cargo and it would point out which car was holding, they removed that too.

Nothing has changed, has been like this since last December. You always had to make sure the target doesn't take cover next to the car. Mindlessly firing rockets always came with the chance of blowing up the car. Destroying the car on purpose has never been an issue. The quick GPS  thing is a different story.

Like I said.

I've done something like 100 barge and car meet missions and never had a scratch to the car when spamming buzzard rockets at enemies no matter how close to the car they where.

 

Only buzzard rockets worked though, any other explosive would blow the car.

 

I doesn't matter now though since it's patched. :(

I've blown up several barge cars with my Buzzard for the purpose of not having to get the stupid Cargobob. Unless something's changed very recently, a direct hit on the car will damage it/blow it up, while anywhere else will leave it unharmed.

Maybe I never hit the car directly before, but that seems quite unlikely I just fire when the square is red.

 

Today I blew up the cars when doing it exactly like I did a hundred times before, so obviously something have changed.

If it's helpful to anyone, here's the La Mesa warehouse route/method I use (in solo sessions) for exporting vehicles which seems to work fairly well:

I actually dip in to the left slightly below and take cover behind the red dumpster. The Rockstar cars always seem to get a shot in if I take the right nook.

^^ Yeah--my experience too; it's a trade-off, really. The right side does offer more cover for the car though...

 

To break up the monotony, I occasionally toss a proximity mine in the middle of the road before the next batch of trolls arrive and watch the land-based comets go by. ;)

OT - I recently found out there is actually another method to always find the right van first time on that special cargo mission.

Yep, I always make that first left, then get out of the car , and run towards the NPC's , I would rather my body soak up the bullets than the car

Question..

I recently just nabbed a collection unintentionally and I'm not sure if I should sell it off or stick to my top range source and sell method instead. Three of the cars in the collection are mid range and one is top range.

I don't want to sell off the mid range ones because that means I'd have to work to source three individual ones again and I'm not trying to do all that, I've been keeping my warehouse full of 10 mid and standards for a good 3-4 months now.

Probably not worth selling off the collection then, right? The bonus is also $50k in case you're wondering.

Personally I never sell collections especially if they contain standard or mid price cars. Much prefer to do the 32 car/source & sell method.

 

 

ALso didn't there used to be a workaround/glitch to avoid the cooldown timer on selling top-end cars?

On PS4 I go back to PS4 main menu, open up netflix/youtube or twitch, GTA5 application suspends, I exit netflix/youtube or twitch and go back to GTA5. It will tell you the application got suspended and it will find a new session for you. Timer will be reset. Not sure about XB1 or PC

You do this straight after selling? Or go back to the warehouse and log onto screen?

For those Exporting from the La Mesa warehouse - take this route out of the warehouse.
 
M4A9BTV.png
 
Hide the car behind a white wall up a small grass verge, just before two red bins.
Jump out and over the wall and hide behind the bins. NPC cars will zoom past you, the guys will run up on you (mostly in the middle of the road) and you can take them all out easy from the cover of the bins.


Sounds like a huge waste of time honestly.

When you turn left onto the highway overpass, keep going onto the highway. Two enemies will spawn near the first exit, usually one on the ramp and one in the middle of the highway. It's easy to blow past them, then it's just a matter of knowing where they *usually* spawn next.

I rarely do over $1k worth of damage, even to Weston's or the vineyard.

This is why La Mesa is the best warehouse imo. It's a straight shot on the highway for most deliveries and you can start every sale from the highway as well. Avoiding lights (that ALWAYS turn red right before you reach them) and intersections is the key to saving money

It takes about 2 minutes to do it so not much of a time waster. Plus you get a few hundred dollars and some ammo that the NPCs drop, every little helps :)

Mainly though, I don't want a surprise spawn popping up when I'm almost at the drop with zero damage.

 

 

And I'm trying to compile a list of all the source missions, more for curiosity than anything else. Can anyone help me add to the ones I can remember;

 

- Photoshoot

       at Ron Alternates Wind Farm

 

- Follow the Kuruma

       to the house in Mirror Park

 

- Cargobob

       floating platform off the NW coast near the islands between Zancudo & Paleto

 

- Photo Identity

       Bayview Lodge

       Rex's Diner

       Two Hoots Falls

 

- Cars doing Laps

       at the Racetrack

       at Sandy Shores Airfield

       at LSIA

 

- Police Investigation

 

- Stunt

       at Lago Zancudo Beach

      

- Shoot the Guards for the Key

 

- Car Meet

Or if you dislike how crowded it is the most expensive VW (Murrieta Hts, next to Lester's warehouse) also has direct highway access via broken wall.

Out of habit I wait for the assistant to call, then suspend app. Works like a charm.

I also own this one. I really like how its close from Madrazo ranch, don't even need to take a lot of altitude to avoid blue cars terminators, just fly over the hills and you're done.

Yeah, I bought it mainly because of how away from everything it is. I like the isolation when it comes to certain businesses lol

@ Rafae... Well done dude, I've just passed 200 myself, but the last month I've been busy elsewhere, lol...

 

500 is my target, once there, We'll see, depending on gunrunning, naturally, but this is an easy grind with a cargobob, just gets boring so I get easily distracted by other jobs/games too much, but I always source and sell a car when other things go tits up, or if I haven't earned anything for the last hour or so, you know?... Such a reliable method of safe, simple and steady cash. It really takes the pressure off for some, once you know cash is there, and we can get it solo, at a breeze, players seem to relax more knowing that it's just a matter of time before we can buy whatever we want...

 

Unlike heists, where many see no end in sight... @ $1.5m (minimum) to start running I/E, many now can see their targets in terms of cash or cars etc. in sight... Makes the game 1000 times better when the reliance of cash gets taken control of... IMO... Much less pressure to heist with randoms these days, if no-one's free to, we've got many modes now where we can still keep adding good cash solo, or in 2 or 3 player teams...

Thanks man

 

I/E is just one of those things no matter how much I do, never feels like a grind. I'm literally getting paid to drive fancy high-end cars around Los Santos and Blaine County... I used to do this sh*t for free back when contact missions were the only way to get money lol

@ Rafae... Absolutely, and compared to Simeone's boosting for 12k on a Ocelot, well, there's just no comparison what-so-ever... Probably should've been the first freemode business to come, as it is GTA... But had it, crates would have been tougher to 'get over'...
