GTAO: Heists and robberies explained.

Recommended Posts

MactoTillDeath

what about the characters in GTA:O. we can only play with main story characters or we create a new character ?

 

You make your own character specifically for online.

 

This has been known months before the game even came out, man.

Put it this way: if this guy isn't correct, and this isn't how Online is going to be, then Rockstar has f*cked up Online horrifically and will be no where near what they built it up to be. You'd best hope he's not fake.

Hey Macto,

 

Is GTAO boring? I mean like I think the map is too big to hold 16 players. Sure, you can rob places and preform heists (eventually), but that'd get boring after a while and with there only being 16 players I can't really see much fun in it.

 

Sorry to be a downer but it's just how I think it's gonna play out.

 

Also! How do you compete with other crews? I imagined like gang wars but not much can happen if there'll be 2 maybe 3 crews in a server at any given time.

 

Thanks mate

No, it's not boring ;) RDR was boring... GTAO gives you so much to do and focus on that at times you'll wish there weren't other people there to potentially get in your way.

 

And crew competitions are organized via Social Club. Anything crew related is done via Social Club basically.

Yes I know you talk a good game, however you joined 6 days ago to these forums and I would bet money you are one of the many idiots that were posting here before game was released saying that you were in the actual GTA V beta.

 

Someone like you, or the same group of people post crap like this every couple days on these forums, has been going on for along time now.

 

If you were really a internal beta tester you would not be risking you're job, as we know R* does all there beta testing in house.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here's the facts:

 

1) I NEVER officially called myself a beta tester. That was something you all assumed, and still assume.

 

Well if you're not a beta tester then all the sh*t you're saying is probably fake. Pics or it didn't happen&if it didn't happen stopped trolling people they are gullible and believing your BS.

How do you presume Online will work, then? Everything he has stated makes perfect sense.

I presume it will work the same way we all know it will from the trailer. Which is where this guy got all his info from most likely, A trailer we have all seen a month ago. Rest of this isn't credible besides the extremely common sense obvious things we already know.

Wow maybe I am wrong, maybe there is a valid demand for this recycled and speculative information.

 

malanQ I suggest you watch the online trailer and read the online review by IGN and then read the information about online on R* website. Then you can use your imagination a bit and will know just as much as the OP...

It would be amusing if two players had to steal the same helicopter as part of a heist prep. First come, first served!

 

 

The asset thing can't happen as the server won't allow it.

 

 

You did say that "acquiring assets in the planning phase actually takes place in free roam" so the server shouldn't be restricting that surely?

 

I assumed that a "get the helicopter" asset acquisition would just be any helicopter, allowing free-roam.

 

If it was a particular helicopter then it must be private session, rather than free-roam, or other players might take that helicopter and ruin the acquisition mini-mission, i.e. the helicopter would already be gone.

 

 

 

Yes, it's completely random. When I said "the server won't allow it," I mean there is no way to NOT acquire a helicopter. There will ALWAYS be one available, it's statistically guarantee. If needed, a player can even BUY a helicopter and have it delivered to them if that's really what they want to do.

 

You need to think in terms of scope. The likelihood of running into another player attempting to steal the exact same helicopter as you at the exact same time, given the number of players, size of the world, and total number of available helicopters spawned in free roam at any one time is unlikely.

 

And like you said, first come first served. If you happen to go to the airport or a helipad somewhere and notice someone, coincidentally, taking the helicopter you were intending to take, then you simply need to find another one or wait.

 

Think like a programmer, bud. ;)

 

 

Are there hardcore servers were we don't have to deal with the crappy invincibility modes like the passive mode?

What I'm wondering is - can you only have ONE character in GTAO? In most MMO's you could have multiple characters - maybe your main character is a wizard, but you have an archer that you play sometimes. Can I have a driver type as my main character, but then have a second character, with potentially different skills, as well?

Gotta say I'm disappointed with the whole "nobody can f*ck with you after a heist". I mean, not even placed in your previous server? The only way you could intercept a crew is by catching the chase on the news, then finding them in a vast open world, and then taking them down before they lose the cops? Think R* have dropped the ball on this one, look at it this way: an average crew would probably consist of around 4-8 people (in fact a lot of crews will have the full 16 players anyway). That leaves 8-12 left. Assuming the others are in their own crew and want to screw up the thieves, they have to scope out different buildings in the hope that someone turns up to rob it, or find a crew member and follow them to the score. Sure, they could all camp the largest score location or a couple of banks, but the vast majority of the time they're gonna be sitting around holding their dicks.

 

Then they have to all get together, plan the ambush on the fly and carry it out, all the while avoiding the original crews lookouts and outside protection, all of this while the robbery is going down. If they do manage to coordinate and get to the location, then you have the potential for an epic fight over the cash. All this takes as much planning and strategy as the people pulling the actual heist, because lets face it, any self respecting crew who gets taken out after a large score by a couple of chancers with a Buzzard or RPGs doesn't deserve to keep the cash imo. R* have probably seen the amount of people complaining about getting griefed in IVs and RDRs Free Roam and done everything to stop this from happening during heists, when leaving this in could of made for some really interesting gameplay and strategies. No amount of mission variety fighting NPCs (and how many ways can you rob a bank anyway?) can make up for human ingenuity. This is why nobody plays CoD SP after the first playthrough, but they'll pour hundreds of hours into the MP side. So instead of some serious online gang warfare (think of the beef that could go down when a well drilled crew takes down another who's just robbed the UD), we're just gonna have a leaderboard race.

3 things I need to know about:

 

Casinos (for both gambling and robbing them), is it in GTAO?

Auto Aim in GTAO?

Is buying cars fixed in GTAO or will the cars disappear like in SP?

 

Off topic, I know that since OP hasnt shown any proof to back up his information, but does it really matter? There is nothing to lose, we will find out in a few days anyways if this is legit or not.

Oh, and just so everyone knows, because I didn't mention it at first and don't want to get blamed for it, the ability to perform heists is a DLC update that, unless R* changes their minds, will not be released with GTAO on October 1st.

 

The heists DLC is the feature that unlocks the planning board and the specific heist missions.

 

Don't blame me, folks. ;)

 

 

Thanks again for pointing out information that has already been released....

 

Seriously cant believe you have all these people believing your nonsense... lol

 

Internal beta my ass, if you were you were you wouldn't be here posting this crap.

 

 

It is funny though, people actually thanking you for this so thanks for the laugh.

 

An internal beta is a possibility, Olli43 is in New York playing GTA:O right now, soooooo yeah.

I agree with this, if what OP said is true, then that's disappointing. It would be hard enough to find a heist in progress and even harder to take them down and get away with their cash when there will be a ton of cops around and there's also the fact that the crew that you just stole the cash from could hire bounty hunters or have guards with them. Come on R*, so many people wanted this.
