People working on powerline poles

Recommended Posts

CryptReaperDorian

Yes, there are people that are working on the powerline poles in GTA IV but they are extremely rare, even rarer than people rag-cleaning windows IMO. Have you ever came across somebody on the powerline poles? I have once during the last deal mission right on one of the poles by the old casino (right by the dug-up part) and I shot him off. And none of those "Pics/Video or it didn't happen" comments as I don't have the proof but maybe somebody else does.

 

I already shot one but I also want to hit one with a rotar of a helicopter, throw a Molotov cocktail at him, a grenade, use the RPG, and throw an item at him.

I said it once and I'll say it again; 390+hrs in and I haven't seen the b*stards! Sure will be special when I finally see them though.

Go to the mobster's daughter's house after "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" mission and you'll see somebody washing a window. Also, I've seen somebody cleaning a window at Westdyke Autos (NRG 900 dealership) too. You can pick up the rag and use it as a throwable weapon too if the person drops it.

Yes, when I was about to shoot a police officer, auto aim locked on the worker (on the powerline pole) and I've wrongly killed him. It was funny.

 

Location: Near to Bohan Safehouse

I've not seen power line workers, but I have seen window washers in North Alderney and also Postmen collecting from the post boxes. (only seen 1 postman to be precise).

I've been missing out on whole heaps of the action.

Maybe there will be a mod for the PC version that increases the chances of these NPC tasks happening.

I've never seen him, but I can't say I spend much time looking up telephone poles either.

I think some things are so rare because lots of times you just go speeding past everything, don't look in the right direction, or scare the people off by shooting. I've never seen postmen collecting from post boxes. Every once and a while you'll also see somebody crouch down to tie or adjust their shoes.

This was odd as f*ck.

 

I ran into the gun store in Chinatown and I shot the dealer. I ran out of the place because I got a wanted level. So I lost it, and figured I could go back and the guy would be alive so I could buy guns, but to my amazement, he wasn't. Even wierder, two guys then busted through the door behind me and blasted me with shotguns.

 

A f*ckING HIT WAS PUT OUT ON ME.

That always happens if you kill the gun dealer. You usually (always for me) get 3 people shooting at you, 2 with combat shotguns and 1 with a SMG.

I saw that for the first time the other day and went insane. I had a complete over reaction "Holy sh*t! That's f*cking awesome man. I can't believe I'm still finding random sh*t like this in GTA IV!"

 

I've seen undercover cops about 4 times though. The first scared the crap out of me. I literally escaped by the skin of my teeth.

I've seen a lot of stuff, but honestly it just pisses me off.

 

Construction workers with pick axes? Why can't Niko pick them up and use them? Guys on telephone poles? Why can't Niko climb them?

 

It just reminds me of how little interactivity with the environment there is.

I KNOW! I saw a contruction worker with a rag once, and i cant jerk off into it? SERIOUSLY THIS GAME LACKS LIKE SO MUCH. sarcasm.gif

 

 

 

And just to let you know, theres more interaction with the environment in this game than past ones.

DUDe i came across theses guys this one time, and i have never even heard of them. I found him on a power line when i was getting chased by the police, i ran up a bill board and,

then i came across a power kine worker.

 

I used the wanted down cheat and studied him. He wears a green jacket and yellow stripes and green pants with stripes. Has red power coils wrapped around him. also has a 

tool belt and a logo that reads communications on the back of his jacket.

his animation is just him using a wrench, and sometimes will look away. will take a tool out of his tool belt and continue.

 

SO yes i have come across this power line worker,
