Tips and other things you might not know!

Recommended Posts

GTALegion

I decided to post a list of the little things I've discovered in GTAO, so that everyone can enjoy the game to the fullest. Try to add things that are similar if you can. This is not the place to bitch about how the game "sucks buttcheeks dog" or to whine about you getting griefed. We're not trying to improve the game, just letting people know things that they might not be aware of. Things that when I've told people online, in game, they were appreciative because they didn't know... such as:

-Buying candy, soda and snacks at stores is possible. They're added to your inventory and can be used to restore health at anytime. You can also buy cigarettes, but they slightly hurt your health. Unless you hold down the emote that involves them, which will make you smoke longer, but drains health.

-Pressing in on both sticks allows you to emote.

-Left bumper (on 360. I assume L1 on PS3) while in a vehicle, with no weapon equipped, allows you to flip the bird.

-Putting on/taking off a mask while wanted, but not seen, reduces your wanted level by one star.

-Yelling into your mic as a cashier is putting money in the bag during a robbery makes them go faster.

-Once you have an apartment, you can go into the shower and sing for free RP.

-Once you have an apartment, you can watch other players in your session on your tv. You can even throw a Weasel News filter on it with left/right on the dpad to make it look like the news.

-You can also switch to the CCTV's outside your apartment to see who's buzzing your door.

Feel free to add anymore, folks. :)

You can pick who your car is available to in the interactive menu.

 

ie. If you only have it available to friends, then anyone other than a friend can't open the doors to it.

This was bugging me for a bit, when I was trying to give people a lift to jobs they couldn't open the handle. Quite funny to see! Try it.

 

Settings are:

 

Friends

Crew

Crews and friends

Everyone

Nobody

How do you put on/take off masks?

I haven't been able to figure that out (Bought a mask and couldn't find a way to get it off again. Ended up buying a couple of sunglasses to remove the mask lol)

Some players might not know but you can take money and put money in to the bank using your phone, like on single player.

If you're low on health and have food, go into cover first and then eat it. You can spam select the food and it'll bypass the eating animation and just heal you up quickly. Saved my life a few times in missions and survival.

Hold the back button (on 360, I'm guessing select on PS3) for a second or two. Then go to inventory, scroll down to masks, and viola!

Indeed! I've informed several people of this in game and they had no idea. Really useful for when there's no ATM nearby.

Oh! Good tip! I didn't think it'd let me do it in cover. :)

I do wonder if it's that easy to deposit money in a quiet place via Maze Bank online, what's the point of the ATM's?

For immersion? I guess if you're in a store, buying stuff, and you wanna drop the rest into the bank, it adds to the experience to be able to walk over to the actual ATM and do it.

 

My question is, how do you put money into your phone? Like physically? Same for ATMs.

Within the internet browser, on the Eyefind main page, there's a link to business activities (think it has a dollar bill icon), Maze Bank is linked, and it's as easy as instructing how much to deposit. You can also withdraw money as well. I remember the minimum deposit is $50.

No, no... I know HOW to deposit it. I mean, how do you phsically get the money from your pocket into your phone, and thus, your bank?

 

It's just a logic nitpick. No real biggie.

What food do you recommend?

 

Is there certain food that gives back more health?

Once you unlock the Merryweather heli escort, you can rappel down or jump out. Rappeling is f*cking awesome tbh, I can't wait until we can do heists and do that. I really hope that R* makes GTA Online heists have the smart/subtle and loud/dumb approaches.

 

Anyway, the escort will take you pretty much anywhere you want. You can also change where he heads to whenever you want. He has funny dialogue as well.

The errr egochaser bars give back the most health.

Ha, yes, well I blame early morning sluggishness for my reply. To answer your question, black magic.

 

The same black magic which you see in use when hiding away your RPG, assault rifle and sticky bombs in a pair of hotpants.

'Double-clicking' L1 (or bumper) pulls or holsters your gun.

Those and the eColas are the best I think. The candy is minimal, but I think you can hold more of it than the others.
