Calling Lester During A Mission

Recommended Posts

gunslinginkitty

I did a quick search for this with no luck.

 

I don't know if i'm missing something here but 'High Priority Case' (as a perfect example) is impossible to play properly.

 

This mission feels like cheating when you have to kill the merry weather helicopter pilot. Call me dumb but i like to try and play the missions the way R* designed them.

 

So i launched the job by myself, called Lester to find me a helicopter, he either wouldn't answer or it was unavailable i don't remember. Called merry weather for the pickup and tried to get him to drop me on the roof, got shot down. I tried again and got him to drop me on the opposite building (don't remember what it's called, the tallest skyscraper that is literally across the street), sniper-ed as many enemies as i could then parachuted over to the building with the briefcase, but i then realized i'd have to spend another 1K on calling merry weather to get down.

 

Why does it say call me if you need a vehicle for a job? Does he mean a free roam job? Cause it never works during a mission. Perhaps you need to OWN a helicopter to play that mission the way R* designed it, in which case is stupid because the mission is available at 25 or 30 i think, and nobody has a helicopter by that level.

You can only call Lester on a job if the job isn't his.

You don't have to kill the Merryweather guy. You can put the way point above the Maze tower, have him fly you there and rappel down. It's then possible to parachute across, you just need to pull the chord quickly and pull up straight away. You can also use the parachute to escape, although granted, it is a bit harder.

Not when the mission is active

Fair enough

How do you get down from the building once you parachute across, you've already used your parachute and now don't have a helicopter.

Lester is the most useless side-contact there is in the game, you have to wait till level 50 till he can tell you where to find an airplane, and guess what, it's at the airport -.- thanks Lester, you're really a bunch of help.

Blip removal and wanted stars removal are the best feature from Lester - Great strategic idea

Well in a way, but the blip removal is so short it really hardly matters at all, not to mention you have to take that extra 15-20+ seconds calling lester to just remove the blip, and in that time your target may already be right next to you. If the time was extended, it would be useful, but at 15 seconds, to me its useless.

Are you kidding me? He is the most useful side-contact in the game. I disagree with your ass. Also, blip removal is a minute.

 

I always use Off the Radar(blip removal) whenever somebody is chasing me, or when I'm planning to ambush someone.

 

Always useful to me.
