Maximum Vigilante Level (30 or infinite?)

muppetmaster_karma.gifconfused.gif Vigilante is obviously infinite.

 

Not having much time to play GTA vigilante (or many games period), I decided to see myself how far I could get with the spawn cheat of Hunter, and just like I imagined, as compared to cop bikes, it was no challege with the Hunter in flight (Cobra Chopper).

 

I reached LEVEL 55, then ran out of time while trying to fly in a bad thunderstorm, then I decided to go off on the cop choppers that had been chasing me (3 stars) for about 20 levels, very quickly I got 5 stars anuj_cop.gif , then CJ started to starve muscle, so I bailed from the Hunter near some parked cars. I got to the nearby spray shop, but decided that I wanted to keep CJ going with 5 stars, so I made a break for a nearby vending machine.

 

That's when my own Chopper (the Hunter), blew up nearby (trolly car pushed it towards me), caught my car on fire, blew up and CJ got wasted.

 

Didn't get a chance to save it, but had a lot of fun.

 

My longest time with 5 stars is over 73:00 (over 3 days in game time, and over an Hour and a half in real life), but I don't recommend trying it right after a high level vigilante mission.

 

If you start a vigilante mission in the Hunter, it is not called 'Vigilante', it is called *Brown Thunder*.

 

Even though it is a cheat spawning a Hunter while in the vigilant mission, I recommend the experience, it is VERY FUN.

 

Also if you could manage to get into the hundreds (probably 300+) of a high vigilante level while flying the Hunter, you will most likely max out your 'flying skill'.

 

rahkstar2.gif Hopefully, though, your savegame file won't get corrupted because of saving after spawning a Hunter. I would recommend landing, destroying the Hunter, and waiting for the wreckage to disappear, before saving your game. It is probably the only way to avoid a cheat corruption in your savegame file.

 

Unless, of course, you have already earned the Hunter through getting all the Gold medals in flight school etc.

 

alien.gifwow.gif 1400+ (and how many days straight in real life?) that's just ridiculous!

 

It is your choice whether or not to save a game after typing in a cheat. Just remember, backup your savegame files (in Documents folder, on PC). 'Cause corruption does happen! And it could happen with your CJ! That's my disclaimer.

 

Oh. rah.gif And for those dudes playing GTA: SA on a PC, the cheat that you type in while in gameplay (not the pause menu!), to get a Hunter (Cobra Chopper) is OHDUDE.

 

Your badass flying machine will appear to your right.

 

Be careful not spawn it where it could blow up, or get stuck: ie, highways, city streets or alleys, and in forest areas.

 

I recommend spawing the Hunter in open areas such as fields, hilltops, parks, or the airports are best, obviously.

 

Remember the Hunter will spawn in the middle of buildings etc, if they are to CJ's right! Good way to make a mess and maybe blow everything up, but not a good way to play the game.

 

So how far have you got using the Hunter (spawning while in 'Vigilante')?

 

What's the record for *Brown Thunder* (Vigilante started while in the Hunter Chopper)?

 

It would be cool to know how far people have gone. monocle.gif

 

P.S. I wonder if level 1400 etc. was reached with use of the Cobra Chopper?

I just want to know whether or not the Vigilante Sub-missions levels are infinite or not.

 

I have heard that CJ can become completely *Bulletproof* after the max vigilante level is completed.  Not 150 in armor, I'm talking about where CJ cannot be killed, except in an explosion or drowning.

 

If the vigilante levels are infinite, I know that the above must be BS, unfortunately.

 

Thanks for any replies from Serious Vigilante Players!

I does seem to be infinite. The highest officially recorded level so far achieved was that of HolyGrenadeFrenzy at level 1,416.

 

I highly doubt CJ can become bulletproof when you achieve a high level of the mission.

I got to level 55 using the Chopper. I just gave up after as it seemed I could just go on and on as long as I had fat to burn. You can really make some serious cash doing this if I can remember correctly.

Thanx for the PR GTA_Loco .

 

And GTA_Loco is correct about no bullet proof CJ due to mission leveling. There are cheats that will allow this though.

 

However you will starve to death or loose your vehicle when going for food if you do not note this simple tip: Memorize the locations of Hot Dog Trucks and the approach direction that gets them to spawn, the HD stands and vending machines help too. This is easier than it sounds.

 

I will be raising the Vigilante Level Bar again within the next couple months as well. Gonna tape it and then covert it for vid of exposions and so everyone can watch the count up to whatever is acheived....I think I will call it Vigilante Exploder or something.

 

If ya want a photo of the 1,416 posted let me know or ask GTA_Loco for it, it is posted on the GTP record book but I don't know if the official listing is in so you may have to look on post 1590 to find it.

 

oh well....here is the photo.

Wow, must of taken a while. I usually do the Vigalante in the Rhino but is it way easier in the Hunter?

It is indeed much easier in the Hunter. You can catch up to the criminals easier then just fire down at them and cause them to explode.

 

1,416 is freaking insane bored.gif

It's lots of fun in the Hunter. Unfortunately, my computer usually crashes somewhere between level 50 and level 75. For some reason, the Vigilante mission makes my computer crash much more often than any other type of gameplay.

Why, thank you. wink.gifsly.gif As long as I'm on your side the question of my sanity stops at Gifted (lunatic) I hope? mercie_blink.giflol.gif

 

Yes, it required the use of the pause button at intervals. Food, some family time, water, regular showers ect. to make it even possible. biggrin.giflol.gif

 

@All-Blacks Yes it is easier in the Hunter but don't listen to the missle/rocket idea the best choice is the chain guns to avoid the gain of stars. Use the rockets only when absolutely neccisary and it is a timer or death issue....Always let the timer be your guide.(UNtil it rolls over anyway then remember vehicle proximity)

 

Certain other things on other threads are also relevant and don't seem unimportant until your dead.........like starving....the best answer is Hotdog trucks and the stategy that makes them appear in their spawn locations.

I've never tried a long run on SA-- but did do a 9 hour 2300 level run on VC-- Since spawning does not lock in on SA, a 1400 level run on SA is more impressive then my 2300 level run on VC-- its very hard to do over 100 levels per hour on SA, but 400 levels per hour is possible in VC....

 

Anyway, I've read this is posible but never tried it-- apparently you don't HAVE TO eat... you won't starve to death, your health will decrease to nearly nothing but stop before you starve. You would have no margin for error if exiting the hunter-- any little bump will kill you.

 

I have not verified this, but have heard it from a reliable source.

 

Also, since the game engine is basically the same for VC, the highest vigilante on VC I've ever seen a screenie was level 4620-- I'm relatively there is no upward limit on this (up to the games ability to display it)-- in which case it is likely the PS2 number limit of 2^31 power (highest number possible to display with a 32 bit processor)...

 

2^31 = 2,147,483,648 -- I do know that the game can't display money amounts above this-- so it should be a number limit for vigilante level-- of course at 100 levels per hour that would take you 2,451 years to reach the limit... for our purposes, the upper limit is infinite...

Yeah, I first tried to flip the level meter in GTA VC and that was when I discovered the friends of mine claiming it flipped from their own experience were lying.

 

Yeah so then I took on the GTA SA last year and it took me many hours to accomplich that level.....but it is mocking me...the 1,416 lvl that is....and I am gonna have to beat it again. The Hotdog trucks is how I eat mostly and I have died before inside the Hunter from starvation....it was a sad moment in my life so I developed a strategy using Hotdog trucks to avoid hunger without risking the loss of the Hunter.

If you say you can starve to death, then I stand corrected--

I may have been injured slightly to start with though or sometime during the mission while getting Hot dogs or something so it is a possiblity if uninjured as far as I know. It may be possible if CJ is completely uninjured as I haven't heard or tried to test it as of yet but I can if ya guys like or get back to me if someone has already.

As far as I know, injured or not, CJ would start to lose fat,muscle and health if you do not feed him for 48 hours (in-game time, 48 minutes real time.) Every hour/minute his fat meter would decrease, followed by his muscle meter when the latter reaches zero. And then his health bar would do likewise once the muscle meter reaches zero too. And as what's been pointed out already, he can get wasted eventually.

 

OT: Did you know that there are locations and ways where CJ would never get hungry for an unlimited time? As in the clock functions normally but CJ will NEVER EVER get hungry.

OH, Yeah you will loose the fat and muscle but this claim about not dying when at full health but just a little life left so that a bump will kill you reminds me of being at full health when you jump out of a plane nomatter how high and survive type thing......not saying it is try but I can probrably do a test to find out if it its.

 

@GTA_Loco>No, I don't know about the locations you speak of,however I am listening intently.

And alas you should be thrilled!

 

I make sure when I am playing a game I pace myself and use the pause button and even in my high level record I stretched it over 5 days because of other needs and the needs of my family.

 

It may be abit hard on my PS2 but I know some things about systems that others may have forgotten or never have known so theirs crash more often when left on for days and days. Like what everyone should do and it is pretty simple: Simplily find a game that must run alot and then turn the game system on and leave it on for three days before you turn it off even once and it effects the system by having future crashes later....The Next system I get I think I will leave on a Week....IT works and you are a fool if you don't do it regardless of the system including PC's. It is all about the new wire smell and the memory being crinkles or whatever its called again.

P.S. I wonder if level 1400 etc. was reached with use of the Cobra Chopper?

 

Yeah, well it was on pause most of the time and it took about 12.5 hrs of real time play over a 5.5 day period of time. Yes, I did use the Hunter (Apache look alike) helicopter but I used and use more than one police/military vehicle during such missions and keep them in key locations to access when needed. But the first 100 levels are best to use with the Hunter so your Timer Meter can get a surplus on it!

 

 

You may think this ridiculous but I still missed my achievement goal so I will be going back for more! :wtf:Ahem. wink.gifrolleyes.giflol.gif So stay cool.gif & Happy Hunting.

Reading this forum over 14 years later out of curiosity to see how far the 'Vigilante' missions will actually go in GTSA. As I try to 'complete' the challenge I realised that this may never end and this theory was all but confirmed when I read that HGF had surpassed 1400!!! I set my own limit to 50, and then just went on to take on all the cops I could before actually being busted by a Fed, dropping out of a helicopter, landing on the Rhino and opening the hatch to bust me! 

 

I take my hat off to your incredible run HolyGrenadeFrenzy, I hope you're out their setting the bar all these years later! Haha
