Isn't it possible to do this one with the Toreador or the Stromberg?

 

No idea, it might be difficult because you need to land in such a small area. I did it with the Bati.

My least favorite is easily the lighthouse jump. It's pretty difficult regardless, but every time you miss it, you need to get back onto land and call your vehicle. Probably took me 30 minutes 😞

 

As Airwolf said, it would have been easier to use the Stromberg or Toreador. I used the Deluxo on my first completion.

Well, I had fun tonight.  Essentially I went off to the casino for the daily spin - before doing a tour round Los Santos for the 10 daily packages, and I got killed by a try-hard who took it upon himself to spawn-kill everyone leaving the casino.

A quick merryweather call for mercenaries forced him to hide inside the casino, so I just grabbed my car and went off on my package tour of Los Santos - and called him out on being unable to kill anyone without spawn-killing them.  About 3 packages in, I saw him continuing to grief other players, so I sent another set of mercenaries.  Naturally that got his attention.  Sadly he completely failed to realise that aircraft cannot hit underwater targets with their missiles - and he chose to accuse me of "camping" - even though I was clearly not sitting in one spot.  My response was "I'm not camping, I'm just engaging in an activity that means I won't have to bother with you griefing me".

At this point he then calls in his friend - and after 5 minutes of both of them completely failing to get me, they both left the session.

I didn't actually kill the guy ingame - but I still made him ragequit.  That makes it a good evening.

last night i had to deal with a (around) level 94 tryhard with a (i think) 265 k/d.

he must have been working at it for a while.

he killed me about 4 - 5 times while i was trying to promote my nightclub.

he even destroyed my toreador a couple of times.

i voted to kick him and messaged one of his other victims asking if he would vote to kick him because he was attacking pretty much everyone in the lobby.

after about an hour or two he left.

this story is sort of a cargo griefer fail.🤣

last night i was doing a mc sale from my meth lab (one full truck).

i got near to where i needed to deliver my mc sale, when a cargo griefer on opmk2 started firing missiles at me (and missing).🤣

i had to deliver my sale at the oil tanks, i successfully made my sale and he blew me up but still failed.😂

Randomly encountered a guy getting picked on by a god mode speedo. I hopped in my half track and got him out of the jam. We got to talking and he seen my rank and asked me if I could help him do Cayo Perico. He literally knew nothing (I knew cause his target was the files) so I just spent most of my night scouting the island for him and teaching him how its done. We just finished.

If there is such a thing as karma out there I hope it shines down upon me during a time when I need it.

 

I don't think I will be taking on any new students for awhile. God I am exhausted.

tonight after i defended my mc counterfit business near sandy shores, some npcs called me an asshole, so i pulled out one of my pistols and scared them off (then i went into passive).

then another group of npcs started spouting insults at my female character, by calling me (i think), an asshole, and saying to me that they'll eat my fingers (that's a new one to me) then started punching me.

i waited to get out of passive, then shot and killed them with one of my pistols.

I'm not a professed hero, but instigating a Jet Griefer to where he targets you instead of the rest of the lobby 

 

I get a lot of grief on this forum for it, but I get an immense amount of satisfaction when I orbital cannon a jet griefer, he rage quits, and we all have a safe lobby to grind in. I've noticed that dogfighting or using explosive snipers doesn't always get them to leave, but the cannon does a good job.

Well, after going back and forth with R* support for two days, I finally got the Buckingham Luxe Tee for only completing Fleeca heist finale.

Anyone who did a finale other than Cayo Perico during last week's event week and did NOT get the t-shirt, I would say take it up with Support and point out how their post stated you could complete any finale.

Went to war with 5 players who picked a fight with me. They did the usual sh*t you expect. Wearing bullet proof helmets, spamming explosives, using RC vehicles, the works.

I figured if they were not going to play fair then neither will I and put my patented method into action. The submarine/Yacht combo. I nuked them again and again and again. Nothing they threw at me could penetrate my Yacht's air defenses, including an Avenger and I just kept nuking them till they all left.

 

For those who wish to employ this strategy themselves I got some advice to help you hit your targets. Primarily you must equip thermal goggles, they are important. Cause what I found is that the heat signatures of players render further away than the heat signatures of regular NPCs. You just head in the direction of the target till you see that one thermal signature all by itself and focus on it and you will find you will have greatly improved accuracy. Just note that while this increases your ability to locate targets you become partially blind to everything else. Buildings, poles, and the like. Refer to your radar and pay closer attention and you should be able to see objects as long as you stay focused.

 

The only major weakness to this strategy is if they come for you in a Stromberg or Toredor. This itself can be countered by having one of your own stored in your submarine's moon pool. You wait till they get close, emerge from your sub in your Stromberg/Toredor and hit them with a surprise attack.

I had a shootout with someone, and killed him three times over. Then the cops came and I had an extended chase, at which point basically forgot about the guy I fought. During that chase, I stole a police van when I needed a new vehicle and hightailed it out. About ten minutes later, that guy I had a shootout with tracked me down all the way across LS, thirsty for revenge, and stood up front unloading an entire magazine of his assault rifle directly into my face.

 

Problem was, the police van I was in was bulletproof and his shots had no effect. I then ran him down, and killed him again. He never bothered me after that.

 

It was dumb luck for me, and sh*tty luck for him. He definitely had a good aim, since the bullet marks on the windshield was literally right in front of my character's face. He just had the misfortune of trying to get revenge on me when I so happened to be in a bulletproof vehicle at that moment.

Yaaay I can share my thoughts and opinions again! Wooohoo...

 

Yesterday I complete the Cayo Perico heist in a jam packed lobby with 3 players chasing me nonstop. One of them is in god-mode wearing 6 different outfits at the same time. Typical ||RIP_UR_KD|| trashbag calling ME a rascist HONKY the entire time cause I use the N-word. *Gasp* He is a white male, corn farmer from Michigan, USA, trying to act cool online for his *black friend* who I will call "Project Bitch"

 

His cheery little buddies are not an issue whatsoever, but he kills me 8/9 times thru the course of my preps. He claims it's "his lobby" but maybe he needs to add more glitches to make any real impact on Valiant ENT.

 

Then everything fails into line and I almost die laughing.. This pathetic loser says to his friends.. "Hey guys, ya'll wanna make a quick 30 thousand?"

 

(I almost fall out of my chair laughing. I'm back in my sub about to make a quick MILLION)

 

This cheating loser then launches Stand Your Ground!!! 😆👎🙉It's the straw that breaks the camels back for me. Disrespectful POS baiting people like that... He's got some nerve. But again I just laugh it off and launch the Cayo Perico heist. Hehehe. 

 

FAN-TASTIC

This morning before work, I decided to pop onto GTA for a wee half hour - and not having too much time on my hands to do much, I ran the Perico heist I had ready then afterwards decided to do a haulage run to lure out the griefers (there was a LOT of PvP going on in the lobby I entered after the heist, but they all ignored me initially).

Most of the run went rather quietly, but I spotted 2 guys racing up behind me in an Arena War vehicle.  Granted, they may have been innocently heading that way - but they'd been tailing me since the Casino - so I planted a proximity mine under the railroad bridge along the road leading from route 68 to Sandy Shores.  They ran right into it as I delivered the Clucking Bell trailer to the coke lab nearby and I called in my Toreador to go package hunting.

The moment I got into the Toreador, I started getting lock-on notification bleeps - a third person in a helicopter had showed up to join the hunt.  Naturally, I just boosted into the water where he couldn't hit me and activated the sonar to locate the packages in peace.  Once I'd marked all ten, I noticed that the 2 initial guys were in the same vehicle in the water - without a special icon I knew they had a Toreador themselves, so I looped around and launched a couple of torpedoes at them to chase them off.  It only took a couple of hits to scare them off towards the Grapeseed side of the Alamo sea.  During this time the helicopter guy was spamming missiles towards me.  He broke off to kill the other two when he saw them get out the water, then returned to me.

I simply sent the helicopter guy a text saying "Get the message - your missiles can't hit me underwater." - he left the session about 30 seconds later - seemingly to do missions because I got 2 mission invites in a row from him after he vanished. - I just went off, gathered a couple of packages then got a notification that I could restart the Cayo Perico heist setups, so I just went off to my Kosatka and payed to trigger the setups - then I just quit the game and headed off to work.

 

A pretty productive morning.  Over a million earned ingame and 3 griefers chased off all before going to work.

So after not playing GTA for a couple weeks, I decided to try it out again and what's my first experience? A god mode kid.. so after finding out he's in god mode I left the area..To find he's coming after me again and then my crew members went after him but eventually we managed to vote him out the session

 

After securing that lobby with TNWO members, another member called in for help..Little did I know the hell I was about to enter..My fellow crew member was under attack by 3 Adobotz crew members and so me & another crew member got there in time and helped him hold off against them..As the randoms left the lobby more Adobotz started to join as their members started grabbing tanks and jets against only 3 of us! So as we invited more members and they intensely tried to fight us off but couldn't and as more TNWO joined, we'd received a report that the crew leader was in god mode! (Can you believe that?!) & it turns out they also had a 56.34KDR! (Caught on the livestream) So we'd all voted to kick him (Took a while) and so we were all fighting them and dominating after their precious god mode leader left and I was helping my crew mates grab a jet to dominate even more but the rest of the Adobotz had decided to come up to the military base too and so we were all fighting out there..Multiple times each crew trying to grab a jet and at one point they had more jets in the sky, which we obviously took down..And after a whole load of tit and tat and dominating the room with 11 TNWO members and 5 Adobotz, the conflict finished with another Adobotz member in god mode after being killed numerous times by our elite soldiers we'd realized there'd be no point trying to bother fighting them anymore since we'd won and then we decided to head off to do an LTS

 

TL;DR: We got into a crew battle in free roam with the Adobotz crew who were using god mode (The leader especially with their 56.34KDR) and still managed to beat them

First off hello Stealth.  Secondly I must say TNWO sounds like it was really cool back in the day.(it still is cool now as well)

Last night I came across the weediest griefer of all time.

I started a Haulage run (which ended at the Coke lab by the Alamo Sea) (You guys already know I use my MOC cab for these) and was pursued the whole way by a guy in a Savage.  Naturally he was unable to even slow me down (I had actually been going slow until he opened fire), but I was able to destroy his helicopter once I dropped off the trailer, then blew him up with a sticky bomb (he'd bailed out after slamming into the ground after I shot it up a lot) - then drove towards my facility to chain a mugger, Merryweather then a strike team against him - but he spawned right in front of me (Yep - that bloodstain on the front of my truck was his brains...) - he left the session the moment he got the notification that I'd sent Merryweather after him - before I even got to the Chapparel clubhouse beside my Route 68 Facility

I will admit that I sent him a message afterwards reading simply, "If you can't stand the heat, then don't grief." - hopefully he takes the lesson to heart, but I doubt it.

Once I had a sniper battle on Palomino Highlands back in the last gen with randoms.

 

Sadly I dont have the footage of it because it was the PS3, but this battle stood out for me as one of the fondest memories I have of playing this game because back then there was no sniper strafing and the Marksman Rifle was still overlooked by everyone...Money was hard to come by, no ammo replenishment in the interaction menu either so no RPG spam was not possible after running out of ammo, the grenade launcher was a fairly obscure weapon back then as well, so players really only had their sniper rifles to rely on.

 

So how did it went down? Essentially there was about 6 players in what's probably the most remote part of the map where not even the cops would go to annoy us, we could see everyone on radar but thanks to last gen's console limitations they wouldn't render because of draw distance, we hid in the bushes near trees with only the tip of our rifles poking out of the bushes, no thermal goggles so there was no way to see where the others were...We had to rely on opening up the map, seeing how much further they from us, and try a lucky shot after some deductive analysis, such as an example: "This player is at 690 meters from me, I see a tree with two bushes at about 500 meters away, with a single bush further away, so the player might be hiding that bush".

 

And thanks to last gen's limitations, the name above the players head wouldn't appear too again because of limited rendering, they would only show up when you were close to the players, so their locations wouldn't be spoiled.

 

Essentially our sniper battle was an actual sniper battle with actual real life tactics, all the 6 players were locked down in their positions, sending their muggers to go and mug the other players and hoping that the mugger could give away their positions, some would fire blindly at the bushes in hopes of hitting any player, I remember getting two kills like that before being taken out because another player might have saw my muzzle flash or just paid attention to where the shot sound came from, some other player tried to use a Merryweather air strike once, but that incredibly useless as all the bombs missed all the targets, waste of precious money.

 

The players who died would run back to bushes as soon they would respawn while the other players would stay where they were because leaving their positions would risk being shot by other players, so relocations was not possible.

 

Our battle lasted for THREE HOURS like this, I walked out of there with 10 kills after summoning a Meryweather helicopter lift as a decoy and actually making a run for it while the other players got distracted by it, some other guy was crazy good and got 11 kills on me + the other players.

 

I decided to share this with you guys now because it just occured me that nowadays having this kind of battle is simply impossible: People will just prefer to kill you with a OP Mk2 or a Deluxo or a Orbital Canon instead of having an actual gunfight, RC toys makes the players despawn from the map altogether and once they respawn they will already be far away, thermal goggles will just give away everyone's positions so hiding in bushes is futile.

 

 

Dammit, I really miss some aspect of how this game was on last gen...We were happy and didn't knew.

This story actually tells the tale of my first 5 minutes in GTA online proceeding the tutorial mission. Right after the first race and I was placed into the world with everybody else, the first thing I noticed was someone in a huge cargo truck down the street from me. I thought to myself, "what's this guy going to do...".

 

And that's when I took the plunge into GTA online. His engine started revving, and we took off. An epic chase: Me on foot, no vehicle, and absolutely no idea what I'm doing in GTA:O yet... and this guy, in a huge cargo truck trying to run me down. Obviously on foot, manoeuvring to avoid a truck that size is pretty easy, but I had a hell of a good time doing so.

 

This chase went on. This guy was determined, chasing me down every tight alleyway, his heart set on making me a decoration on the underside of his vehicle. I was actually amazed that I was thrown into a game and instantly left to fend for myself against a psycho truck driver. I was having the most fun I ever had.

 

Eventually he lost sight of me, but I knew I only had a short amount of time to get the hell out of there before he'd get to my blip on the map. So I booked it onto the roof of a building and watched from there as he supposedly gave up and drove around a corner. I was victorious, and got to live to see another day.... or so I thought.

 

From the same roof, I looked down into the street, and my amazement peaked once again. 10 minutes playing GTA:O and already an epic chase on foot... and now...

 

A 6 person gunfight brawl in the middle of the road?! I thought, "no way, this is incredible".

 

And since I stumbled upon this particular gunfight because I just happened to be on a roof at the time, I used that to my advantage and whipped out my gun and took them all out. Hah, they didn't even know what hit em. From there I did an epic movie-style somersault down into the street, collected those poor fools hard earned dollars, and JUST when I thought I pulled off something amazing... the truck driver came back and flattened me.

 

I can clearly remember having to put my controller down and just stare at my screen in awe. 10 minutes into this game and I was already immersed completely and had the most fun I've ever had in a long time. What an experience.

Reading this and comparing to the sorrowful state that this game is in now, is quite tragic.

 

The magic is lost.

After completing the Doomsday II water cannon mission with a Level 6 and another guy I met a Level 1 Player that joined my organisation and finally I could do the Patrol Boat prep at the Alamo Sea, was lucky that I got this location, always wanted to that with a team of two, one driving, one shooting. I think he's actually a new player (at least on Xbox One) but for that he played quite well, came to the location the game told him, did not do stupid things but actually helped me. 

 

Since he did so well and he was already in my organisation I thought let's try the Stromberg mission and it worked out well too, we had to restart once but then it went smoothly, guy did not know how to switch on missiles, maybe for the better so he did not blew himself up (as did much higher levels). Guy also showed trigger discipline and did not stupidly fire the Patrol Boat guns as the average kid would do. Added him as friend then, will invite him when I try Perico Heist with a team of four. Will invite him for some Doomsday Missions too where he can stay in a vehicle, maybe even for the Bogdan final.

 

You can have a worse start playing GTAO, driving a Patrol Boat down the Raton Canyon and then completing a Doomsday mission, since he was a Level 1 it must have been his very first steps in GTAO.

Was playing some freemode yesterday & noticed everybody is b*tching about a certain organization, i check the map and its 4 players all griefing the rest of the sess with jets, having just unlocked explosive ammo for MK2 weapons (for my alt) the day before i find myself a nice roof and take them all out with the sniper, they say something to each other in russian and all leave, i feel smug.

5mins later one of them returns with cheats, after exploding me a few times i ghost the fool and openly make fun of his cheat being so bad i can just counter it by ghosting, he starts doing all the usual crap (explode as if hes a different player, teleport to appartment, water & fire jets, attaching objects, etc) so i record a video. I tell him i have video evidence and he should go have a nice day somewhere else & then i switch sess, guy follows me to new sess, i record another video as he does the same sh*t again, i switch sess again, this goes on for 5 sessions/videos during wich the guy suddenly switches from single words to perfect English, in the end he tells me im cheater trash and he's "mass reported" me for exploits because i exploded their planes, i laugh at the fact that he doesn't know the game hes cheating in and tell him his actual nickname, 10 seconds later he leaves.

Half an hour later i uploaded 5 very conclusive video reports all showing his obvious cheating + his actual nick on his R* social crap profile, next morning i still feel smug about it 😛


All griefers can eat d*ck & all cheaters can choke on one, while its not like i enjoy having to put so much effort into reporting people, at the same time i kinda do, make my day punks. Also i cant help myself and always tell them im reporting, i want them to know that if they get banned, it was me :kekw: if that means getting some fool to stalk me for a bit so be it. (this usually never lasts long & besides that the few times that some of them actually broke my account, R* always fixes that sh*t, so no worries) Guess that makes me a bit of a machogist lol.
