After 107 steal missions I got one that I never got before.. the one at the Bolingbroke Prison.

Weird how I ever got this one for so long.. I didn't even know it existed lol

It's a variant of the infiltration mission.

The only supply mission that requires you to be during a specific time to trigger it.

It's like that Sewer, Mine, Recycle station mission.

 

 

What time? I've never done it either and I've done a sh*tload.

I asked Fun 2 about if there are a secret mision as UFO crash (there aren't) but he saidme this: There's only one source mission disabled and that's the Infiltration mission only enabled from 19:00 until 02:00 in-game time.

Not sure if posted but since it was the last day for 2x $/RP I thought I'd sell all my crates. 10 Narcotics, and 1 each of various cargo. 14 in total. An easy $300,000? Not so fast. 2 Hunters, object was to fly to location, take out the opposition and deliver the crate. Now this is the fun part. Fly back to the other Hunter, deliver crate, and rinse/repeat. Each location was getting farther from my hangar, so by the 2nd go around, I parked the Hunter at the last drop, and continued my quest. It was a good thing I did. Time was not on my side by now. Down to the last 2 drops I had to fly about 1/3 way across the map to pick up the final crate. If you're in the red zone in time, it's cutting it too close. With 27 seconds left, I made the last drop

Me and my friend got this once. Phone at start says midnight.

Apparently there is a similar one at Humane Labs?

^ Yep, it's the other variation of the infiltration mission type. I got the Humane Labs one early on in my steal mission runs but the prison one only just recently.

I can never steal the cargo stealthily on either of those. I've only had the Humane Labs early on also. That one almost ended badly

Same here.  100 steal missions (done with them now, as my OCD is satisfied with the nice round number, just like with the original crates).  I got Humane Labs just one time, early on, and prison I've gotten a couple times, yet each time they get alerted!  But then, there's just something about the whole cone-of-vision missions in general that always give me issues!  Never mind the fact it shouldn't be an issue (nobody seeing each other, single-shot silenced headshots, sneak-walking only (with max stealth))... I still manage to trigger them!

I notice the enemies closest to the target vehicle always seem to be facing each other.. probably on purpose too as it's almost impossible to shoot both without alerting the whole facility.

I've done 250~ sources and made a little over $10mil from SR since it dropped. Easily my favorite business.

I source and buy supplies for my Bunker. Within the 12 hours it takes to fill, I source 50 Narcs.

And bless you R* for doing 2x Hangar so soon. I had a full Hangar before that dropped because I didn't feel likr selling it that Monday, and woke up to that glorious "1,700,000" sale price.

Are you doing it solo?
I would think if you had a partner and you popped both guards at same time they wouldn't get alerted. They must've made it that way on purpose Just like in one of the Lamar missions and also the Deliver EMP one at Humane Labs.

^
I already did both the Humane and Bolinbroke stealth steal mission, solo each time: no problems, I never got caught but once (see at the end of post)
Using MK2 pistol with FMJ and silencer, I go headshot only.

I take the offered Cargobob just to reach a Lazer at Zancudo, and then I eject once I reach the "bailout mark".
The plane usually hits the ground before me, away from the target.
Also, I parachute in a dark area amidst the zone marked on the map: behind a wall, on a roof, ...

Regarding guards looking at each other, kill them fast with one headshot each and you're good to proceed. Be fast: one missed shot, or one word from one of them and you're good for a big bad noisy fight.

Maybe the weapon is the problem: my MK2 pistol lost its silencer after purchasing some ammo in MOC. It happened without notice, and I had to equip it again...
I didn't realized that until this mission happened recently during a steal. So I parachuted, did my first headshot, and got violently f*cked to death in 1.5 seconds by 15 guards.

I just realized you can fully run in the hangar. You can only jog in most buildings.

Yeah, thank God. I remember when you could only walk in all interiors. I think they tried to allow us to run in bunkers with sr, but they f*cked up and we can now run in MC businesses instead. It doesn't work well.

I finally got those special missions. I completed them both without alert using the special carbine with suppressor.

I just want to say. I wish the double money was the normal pay out. 20k per crate. The missions are easy if you dont make a mistake with your hydra or lazer, but if you crash, they can be brutal. The salvage missiom in the water, a great mission with the hydra safely landed on the platform, but crash it, and you just added 10 min to complete it.

I think smugglers is better than gun running, but I like gun running as well. These updates added exactly what players asked for aside from solo public businesses which is about as likely as "nerf the dang cannon."

Does anyone have a list of all the sell missions? I've been filling up for the 2x event and I'd love to know what sell missions I could possibly get.

Most of the time there is a new money making business, it is slightly better than the last, based on how much you can average per tome spent. I estimated that if airfreight had followed this trend, each crate (before bonuses are applied) should sell for 30k, not 10k! It's the worst way to make money. You can make money quicker in double money Adversery modes, if you win half the time. Unless of course you have associates who help you, and you don't need to help with theirs.

I think going for the cheapest crates is most profitable. The AI are less intense if you get shot down, meaning you average less time per mission. This is worth more than the extra bonus for more valuable crates.

Nice missions, for sure. But I'd prefer it if they had been vip works launched from the menu, as apposed to a new business.

^^even with a full team of competent players+ double RP/bonus its crap. When peoples make rotations, they don't play 13 missions, they play 13x4 missions. Needless to say, after 2 hours you're burned out, worse than with cars and Special Cargo. 

And that implies your RL schedule allows you to game two hours consecutive. Well, thats not for me.

I could care less about the per hour formulas. The missions are fun to me. IE is supposedly the best, but the annoying npc chasers and who sets timers so they can remember to go back to their warehouse. Smugglers is around 300k per hour when its double.

I actually tried playing with randos...worked fine first run. Second run got attacked, they wasted the buzzard, and we continued to spawn on a hotel roof.

Are there any tricks for doing the delivery with the crappy Mogul when you're on your own? I do SR for fun when none of my friends are online, I usually just source 5 counterfeits then deliver but I keep getting that awful delivery. I was so close to delivering all 5 and then my engines failed. >.>

It's a horrible one. I managed to finish it once, but haven't been able to replicate it.

 

I fly really low, so the helicopters crash into things. Also I'll keep gaining and losing altitude - a plane can do that faster than a helicopter.

 

But yeah, I don't know if I could recommend even attempting it. They'll nearly always take down the plane halfway through.

@Mel
As soon as they spawn, land the plane. Go for open spots, like a beach or a runway... Mountain tops if you are good at landing the Mogul.

Shoot only the gunners, NOT the pilots of the choppers.

You should be safe... Hopefully.

^ Neutralising choppers via killing just the gunners is a very good tactic in a lot of scenarios fwiw, inc Monster Truck bunker sells. 

 

Does the Mogul have JATO? If so also try hopping rather than flying, mountainside to mountainside.

Yes, she does.

I tried that before, unfortunately she loses momentum rather quickly once the secret sauce is out & they catch up to you.
