Armoured trucks?

Recommended Posts

Gibbzy101

How often do they spawn?

I read about a glitch on this forum that they could spawn one after the other?

What will make that happen?

Cheers in advance!

I've seen this happen.

 

It has happened in a friend only server twice. There were 4 people in the server at the time.

 

Never had this happen solo.

This is how it happened for me. Was flying the cargobob with someone trying to keep their entity in the back. I took off too low and crashed the plane and had to pay his $9900 deductible. The game spawned an armored truck and I told him that we should go get it so I could get my money from his deductible back it was on the north side of the map and we did not make it up there before it D spawn then it spawned another one we got that one and then for some reason it started spawning them like crazy I'm pretty sure I hit somewhere in the neighborhood of 30 to 40 armored cars and made about $350,000 in about 2 hours. I invited some people in and they each got about $100k before the trucks stopped spawning.

Damn! I want to go on an armoured truck spree, seems like a good way of making a lot of cash in a small amount of time. Never seems to happen for me though.

It's a glitch that somehow deals with lag while playing with other people. Not real sure what exactly causes it though.

Yeah it spwans for me as I'm driving outta my garage...I think 2 stickies won't make it blow up, one time I put like 3 and there were cars around it, blew it but all the cars in traffic got blown and the truck was toast...no money.

 

The funniest is when it's on the highway and everyone is just hitting it up one after the other.

Might be cause there were other vehicles behind it which amplified the explosion.

Not 100% sure, but. Believe you can destroy the money sometimes if you se explosives, I've gotten no money at times using a stick of c4, but using the combat shotgun... A few shots and it always drops the goods.

You have to make sure the explosive is plant on the door, so when it blows, it's a little explosion that only damage the door, if you got it on the wrong place, or even worst, the little explosion at the door blew up the car behind/next to the truck, which as the car explode, cause the truck to explode, you get nothing. A nicely placed stickie should only damage the door and leave the rest of the truck intact.

 

I had the quick spawn glitch happened to me this morning by the lsc nearest to Frank's garage in sp... I was so pissed since I only had 2 stickies (and pretty much out of ammo) and am on my bike

There's absolutely no need to waste explosives on armoured trucks..

 

All you have to do is stop in front of them in a car so they stop, get out, kill the driver (and other guy if there is one), go to the back of the truck and shoot the door with a shotgun 3/4 times..

 

Why people waste $600 when most of the time they blow up the entire truck is stupid.

 

Maximise your yield people!!!!

Never had a problem with the trucks blowing up with stuckys on the back doors, so long as there is no car up it's arse at the lights. Man I love using them stickys.

 

Gonna have to try the casual shotgun approach though. Unless my nerves get the better of me ;)

you don't blow up the truck with a single sticky to the back, EVER

and if they're spawning all around me doing them quickly will maximize my profits

sticky bomb for the win IMO

 

any way the spawning seems really inconsistent

I barely ever see any spawn normally and than suddenly they're everywhere and I get to rob dozens in a row

 

makes no sense

Everyone in the lobby has to be level 19+ or they won't spawn at all. Re-occurrence is strange and spotty though. And I would not suggest using sticky bombs unless the truck is in motion.

 

I usually drop my helicopter in front of the truck. Pop the drivers and jackhammer (auto-shotty) the doors open. No fuss no muss, no blown up vehicles, just profit. Take off in the chopper, drop the sunglasses, and ride off into the sunset.

I always thought this only worked in Private Sessions but this happened in public a couple times just recently as well. It seems to be a random event, never a specific thing, some days it works each time, some days they never pop up.

I find that you get more money from them by using a shot gun on the back doors rather than sticky bombs.

I think it's random...when there are more people in the session with you, they will spawn back to back to back.

I've had armored trucks spawn non stop one after another. Suffice it to say I made a pretty penny afterwards

Shotgun the back after killing the driver, as nentioned above. Way better IMO. Invite only session.. They will spawn and a lot of times they repeatedly spawn over and over.

 

I made 200k last night off this. Got me a new super diamond.
