No patrolling cops?

Recommended Posts

Jessej247

I've seen cops parked on the side of the road. I have seen cops chase NPCs through the streets. I see cops show up quick when I cause mayhem. I don't think I've ever just been driving around and seen cops driving around.

 

Anyone else notice this?

Ive seen few, but they are rare. Its better to see them parked somewhere or chasing someone, than 10 police cars in traffic jam like in GTA 4.

It's better then having 3 cop cars on every corner. And I've seen cops cruising in pairs.

I noticed this too...and it is kind've annoying to an extent. Seems the only place I've seen them patrolling is at Bolingbroke Penitentiary. By the way, if you're gonna try and jack one of the patrol cars you see parked on the side of the road, make sure you have at least 75-100% health, otherwise you may not survive. I tried to jack a sheriff cruiser with only 50% health, and I managed to drive about 50 ft before I got taken out lol.

I'm a Rockstar fanboy, but I can still criticize them when I find something I don't like. However, you're worse than a fanboy, as you go out of your way to only criticize them. I think I know who most people would call a moron.

OP, I mostly play the game just roaming around, messing about, played about...50 hours. I've never seen a cop patrolling...well, I saw one, but I'm not really counting that because I'm pretty sure he had just come out of a chase.

 

Yeah, so they chase, they're parked up but they don't just drive around. I get you. You're right. But there is already a pretty big thread on this very subject.

It isn't though. And no, you haven't-at least not patrolling. They were probably just off a chase.

I like it better this way. In GTA IV I had to constantly look over my shoulder before breaking the law (stealing vehicles, shooting people). The way that they spawn when chasing you is annoying, but I guess that is the way that it is. :blink:

 

A slower build up to cop-rage would have been better. Let us have some fun before hitting a 3 star level.

I've seen plenty of cop cars. Mostly on the freeway, though.

i'll take patrolling cops over those random car chases with the cop yelling over the horn.. i swear, that loud speaker is louder than anything in the game.. its quite annoying, as i play the game pretty loud.

I think I've seen a cop patrolling only once.

 

I've never seen a cop on foot aside from very rarely outside a police station. Something else worthy of note, EXTREMELY RARELY will I see a crown vic chasing me aside from being in the countryside where the sheriff drives them.

You don't even see cops walking the streets like you did in GTA IV

In GTA IV I had to constantly look over my shoulder before breaking the law (stealing vehicles, shooting people).

IMO that was a good thing. Made me think twice before doing something stupid. Felt like a real city with all the cops patrolling on foot and car.

There was way too many cops in IV, now there is way too less in V. Hopefully R* will find a balance in VI.
