First Post: Trying to burglarize houses?

This is my first post, I don't use no stinkin' guides... just me, my PS2 and a hotpocket.

 

SO I want to burglarize a house, because I'm gangsta. I'm no more than 6% of the way into the game, as I just bought it the day before yesterday, but I Have done "House Invasion". After completing this mission, I was told I could burglarize "most" houses in San Andreas, but that I needed to use a certain type of truck to do it. After a burglary, I was to take the truck to a drop off point used in the mission.

 

Couple of issues: first question, does successfully burglarizing houses loot much cash?

 

second question: I FINALLY found a truck, I think it's called a "Boxville" or something like that, in the Ocean Docks. Took me all day to locate one. I drove it around at night, randomly parking at houses, walking around them, trying to get in... nothing..

 

What am I missing?

 

Thanks in advance!

 

EDIT: I'm also interested in buying/selling drugs, once again because I'm gangsta. Any tips on what missions to complete to make this possible a.s.a.p. and any tips on dealing once I do possess the ability to buy/sell?

...burglary cash increases depending on number of items stolen ...the burglary truck for Los Santos is located a couple of blocks west of CJ's house...near B-Dups apartment (cleaning the hood mission)...when you find the correct truck a message will tell you when burglary missions are available...good luck..and buying or selling drugs is a no-no...

The boxville you need is located southeast of grove street. You can start the mission between 20:00 and 6:00 hours. When you are doing the missions some houses will be able to be entered. You can burgle them and after 6:00 you have 5 minutes to bring the load to the lockup. If you have burgled a total of $10,000 (this does not have to be done in one night) you get an additional $3,000 and infinite sprint.

 

I will try to make a little map so you can easily find the boxville.

 

To answer your second question: drugs were taken out of the game by Rockstar before the release so you can't buy or sell them.

 

EDIT: I made a little map

1 is CJ's house and 2 is the location of the boxville.

I also have a formula for the total cash: 20*(#items stolen that night)²

dang it, that's so weak. if I can grab a random person near an elementary school, hold them in a half-nelson, and slit their throat with a knife I got by beating the sh*t out of a hooker, I should be able to buy some damn weed. Obviously game-ratigns are to blame.

 

F*ck U.S. Censorship.

 

When is a big game producer gonna make a straight up adult video game? Ever?

What flavor? It makes a difference you see.

Ah, but you don't burglarize for cash. You do it for infinite sprint wink.gif

@Southwest. Also, your equation is WAY off. That would mean having to steal 500 items and that's just not so. Besides, it's not a fixed rate. It increases per item so that the more you do in a night, the more profitable it is.

 

 

...relax...enjoy the game...
He's trying to, but the censorship won't let him. And don't even get us started on how R* crumbled under unfounded pressure and punished their fan base by watering it down further AND causing mass confusion amongst the players.

I don't see how. With this formula you need 23 items in one night to get $10,000.

Fill it in: 20*23*23=10580

Burglar Missions brings some money, not much, but enough. I also had a problem with searching the houses, because you can enter just specific houses, where the doors are marked with yellow triangle.

Yeah, and also don't have to pick a nice vinewood house to burglar, small houses south of grove street are actually pretty good. Yes they are small and not much items, but most of the items are actually in SPRINTING DISTANCE. Well that's my experience, I dashed in, 3 steps already reach the TV. That woke up the guy and 10 sec starts, but I'm already out of the house even before reaching 5. But this strategy needs 2 houses stick together. When you finish the second house the first one is reset and you can go in again

1. To answer your second question: drugs were taken out of the game by Rockstar before the release so you can't buy or sell them.

1. I didn't know they DID have drugs, then they took em out. SO, What Happens? GTA takes drugs out, and Scarface decided to steal GTA's idea, and what happens next? Scarface tryed to beat GTA w/ their own idea, then, BAM! GTA is still better!!! lol (I have no clue why i just said all that biggrin.gif)

 

2. Basiclly, $10 per item! biggrin.gif And, I steal a Sega Genisis lookin thing, and all I get is $10 damn dollars!!!? notify.gif lol

You don't actually have to finish one house to reset another.

This is the Gameplay forum. Which means the person asking was looking for skill related methods.

I agree entirely...

If you want to sell drugs, play GTA Vice City.

Not quite the same. In Vice City, you sort of sell "ice cream". You just drive an ice cream truck and sketchy people come and buy drugs.... You really don't get the feel of being a street-dealer.

 

But I guess that was in keeping with the comical nature of the game, which didn't really make it's way into San Andreas...

yeah...maybe after playing games like blood money or the complete series of "thief" I expected another thing...but well, i understand it's just a little part in the game...

Another thing about that is that two little house close together are better than big houses for getting stuff fast--less house to run to the door with.

 

Also, mission aside, C.J. can set a TV in the road and give the traffic a hard time--it's like a rock for vehicles.
