Yeah I agree one time i was in the middle of the desert there was only one person there and i decide to kill him with a silent combat pistol and then a random cops shows out of nowhere and starts chasing me because apparently all the cops have wall seeing vision or some sort of wall hacks to see you out of nowhere,.

For f*ck sake this is the main problem I am beginning to have with the game and tbh its only (I wouldnt say game breaking) insanely irritating flaw, I shoot a hiker WITH A SILENCED f*ckING WEAPON ontop of Mount Chilliad (where the trail is) and BOOM f*cking wanted and cops start driving up the mountain? Wtf is this BS? I kill people in the desert and BOOM wanted? f*ck that it is beginning to annoy the sh*t out of me and imo ruined GTA IV and I was hoping they would fix it with this one but nope. Also its annoying how the cops just spawn infront of you when your wanted,,,,

Walk within two foot of a cop... BANG you're dead. Maybe on 1 star they could case you with nightsticks. Maybe they could add an arrest physic like on story mode onto online

This only happens to me in Grand Theft Auto Online because so much people are having wanted levels, however, I don't struggle so much with the police in Grand Theft Auto V. It's only the frustrating moments when you accidently attack someone and you already have the police breathing in your neck, so it's between too hard and just right. There are some place for changes though.

My problem with the GTA V cops, they ram you if you're in a car. I must say, I like the GTA IV cops better, since they actually try to force you to pull over by pushing the side of your car, and in IV they actually go to your car door and arrest you. In 5 the cops at 2 stars and up go, "HE'S IN A CAR! KILL HIM!!!" And when trying to pull you over, "RAM HIM! THERE'S NO OTHER WAY TO GET HIM TO PULL OVER!!!"

Lol, funny topic and I laughed my dick off rading those posts XD

 

Yeah, i totally can relate to this bullsh*t wanted system. I once was in the deserts and there was only one NPC out there

and I killed him a hammer. So no loud gun shot. However, f*cking cops were coming and I was looking around who snitched me.

And guess what who snitched me?? A f*cking rabbit!! Seriously, R*! WTF! Rest assured, I killed that rabbit.

 

The most retarded wanted system ever.

Dangerous and sad

Can't have a good shootout between CGF and the cops. Shoot the cop and straight away it's a three star. CGF flee due to it being a 3 star. This wasn't the case in SA.

I see people complain a lot about losing money constantly from PK's in Online mode, but seriously, I think I've died more times (and been arrested, but rarely am I not shot to death) and lost thousands thanks to the LSPD in Story Mode, and that ticks me off more.

 

I get that they're apart of the game's satire of modern American life, and they are definitely hitting the mark with police brutality but... does it need to be as harsh in the game? I mean to the point where I don't even feel like stealing cars because I'm so sick of running from cops every time I steal a car in the middle of nowhere? And take a taxi because my car won't spawn outside hospitals/precincts? (That should be a thing, too, IMO)

 

It needs to be toned down in certain situations, i.e. trespassing, theft, harassing an officer (talked to a female cop three times, all three times she kept saying "f*ck you!" but I did not expect it would end in eating lead)... Like, before they go apesh*t, fire some warning shots, maybe? Let you turn yourself in...

I'd love no police sessions (with the ability to rob stores or anything we can take advantage of to make money without cops taken out) for those who want to completely kill each other. Also, dead peds won't drop money (which in Online averages $30-54)

Seriously, why do you get a wanted level when you kill a hiker on mt. chiliad and then after like 15 secs 3 cop cars are AT THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN.

 

You need at least more than 1-2 minutes to get to the top with a car

 

 

Look at it this way: If Mt Chiliad existed in real life and you killed a hiker with a silenced weapon and no one else was around, it could take weeks before the body was found, depending on when he was reported missing and how elusive his body's location was. Then there needs to be a full police investigation with coroners, detectives, forensics etc. Which involves the cornering off of a large portion of Mt Chiliad and treating everyone hiking/riding to the top as suspicious persons. Detectives may or may not find a casing for the bullet which would identify where you stood when you fired the shot, enabling detectives to get a better look into how you took the shot (firing from the bushes, from a distance, if you were chasing the victim etc.), as well as what type of firearm was used in the killing. They would then reach out to the public to see if anyone could identify any suspicious persons that were heading to the top of Mt Chiliad or where at the top on the day the coroner finds to be the date of the victim's death. If someone saw you head up Mt Chiliad without any actual hiking gear on, they could view that as suspicious and phone the cops after hearing their appeal for witnesses to describe you to them. Then there would be an investigation into the car you drove up, the clothes you wear wearing, your build, hairstyle, facial hair etc. And more often than not, you would eventually be tracked down. The police would then have to come up with a strategy to corner you at your most vulnerable in order to bring you in for questioning. They would execute this strategy, and you will either die in a shootout weeks, possibly months after you killed this random hiker, or be arrested. You would then have to either admit you're the killer, come up with an alibi or convince the detectives some other way you were not the killer, and if they found a firearm in your house matching the bullet type and casing and/or have CCTV footage of you heading to Mt Chiliad at the time of the murder, you won't have much chance at evading the law. Judging on the circumstantial evidence they have gathered, they may or may not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you were the Chiliad assassin and you may or may not go to jail for murder.

Keep in mind you're also trying to plan heists and enjoy yourself, maybe playing a bit of golf or tennis with the wife, whilst waiting for your day in court (which may even be inside a jail cell, depending on your bail grant).

 

In GTA you kill someone, the police come to try and find you instantly, you escape their line of sight, hide for a minute and you get away with the murder enabling you to carry on with the rest of the game.

 

 

What would you prefer?

You forgot one thing. Silencers are illegal, because bullets hit the walls, denting the bullet, making it difficult to find out the gun used.

the cops pi** me too much in this game.the health and armor is also useless compared to gta 4 counterpart. ( Is there a way to increase the health and armor level, modding?)

I agree how wierd the cops can still catch up to you, even how fast your car is and magically predict your every move, where you hide, when to ram and easily be unrealistic accurate as F**CK.

No matter how you mod handling.cfg files on the pc, the car makes no difference to increase on speed and acceleration ( A glitch, or another file that dev try to piss you off with the game imo).

Unfair, Unrealistic 2/10 for this stereotypical and racial biased game.( Cops are more racial on Franklin and Trevor)

Has anyone noticed in the game that on the autoshop (Franklin and lamar First Mission), if you try to do a shootout in there, the cops bullet will pass through the window (frequently sometimes)

and hit you losing health, the bullet wasn't mean't to pass that window ( lazy devs) and hit you. But Sadly if you try to shoot them back, your bullets won't through the windows to hit them. ( A damn glitch imo and a F**CKIN SHAME to lose health like that, also did anyone mention this? Not to be offensive stealing).

All NPC combat is way too hard. It's easy enough to kill them (long as there's not too many) but their aim is too good and their weapon ranges are unbelievable (above half health bar can be wiped out from a shotgun shot from a considerable distance).

However police in the game seem the most well balanced NPCs as they're not too easy to escape on roads but you can generally lose them easily off-road (or by killing your tailgaters and hiding in an alley). The cops in this game are just annoying enough to be a problem that makes you need to move area but not enough to haunt your game.

 

It's the non-cop NPC's I hate. At least cops have an excuse for robotic aim, and most of the time you're just fighting other criminals so that seems good - cops should be harder. In Online though all NPCs have way too much armour.

While the police itself isn't that difficult to avoid (you can hide in the alley or even underground to made even 5 stars wanted level avoidable), the "how you get the wanted level" itself however is the ones which made this police section become somewhat hard and tedious, given even the slightest mistakes can give you a wanted level, not to mention except you intend to get busted, the police will always try to kill you even in the first wanted level

I think initial PS3 version and PC version has different level of police handling. In initial PS3 version cops able to see behind the walls and they even able to detect underground from street level. These super abilities does not exist on PC version(I no longer have a PS3 to check if updates change the police behaviour on the console version too) and you can dasily lose cops by hiding behind wall.

Damn, really? If that's the case then it would definitely become extremely difficult to avoid then.. I myself own the PC version so i guess escaping from the police isn't a big deal for me..

When I have 4 or more stars, to lose cops; I generally use the sewer system which we used in first heist.

 

Cops like immediately shooting in this game, but also your health regenerates itself. Don't forget the duck your head in cars while you are driving in order to avoid headshots.

 

Not too hard not too easy cops are normal I think.
