kill the store clerk and empty the register yourself.....

i just heard a rumor and decided to try it. if you shoot the clerk with a silenced pistol and then go up the the register and press the right d pad you can empty it yourself. you get a 3 star but you get out faster and if you're robbing the gas station on the northeast part of LS you can hide behind the building next to the convenience store and the cops won't find you even with a 3 star.

The only benefit is getting an extra star wanted level. You don't get any more cash. It's pointless, the extra wanted level is just for killing the cashier.

It's a little faster than waiting for the clerk.

I thought you get less cash if you kill him instead of letting him give it to you.

That extra star is 100 more rp after losing the cops. I don't empty the reg myself. I KO the clerk and put 5 bullets in each register. That drops the cash on the floor so I can pick it up on my way out.

I'm sure you do, when I kill the clerk I never get more than $800, but when I let him empty it out its above $1000 99% of the time

Yeah you get more if the clerk empties the register rather than doing it yourself, but still it's a lot faster and you're going to be on 3/4 stars anyway if you're robbing multiple stores in one session.

You don't need to kill him, just punch him. Though he sometimes accidentally dies from a single punch, but most of the time he just tries to run to the back of the shop while you empty the register. Also if you wear a mask and then take it off, or switch to glasses when out of range of the cops it removes a wanted level.

yeah i doubt i'll do it much but i didn't know you could do that. i've had times where there was no clerk, or i accidently bitch slapped the clerk while trying to kill some wannabe hero outside.

Just punch him and you can do the same thing while still keeping two stars.

LOL me and a friend did that yesterday and drank ALL the pisswasser inbetween the buying and the stealing the cash back. If only one of us had kept an eye on the radar so we could have seen the guy coming in, blow us all away and take the cash. Duno if its a glitch or not but when i respawned i had drunk vision but not control for about 15 mins. It made escaping his repeated attacks very hard until i reached the copter.

But, I've seen more than one shopkeeper run to the back, pull a gun, and attack. If you're going to attack the shopkeeper at all, kill him.

 

And a few points about disguises (masks/glasses/hats):

 

1) If you take off or put on a mask OR a hat OR glasses, WHILE out of the cops' sight-lines, you can reduce your wanted level by 1 star. Careful though, if you put on and take off the same item, while still wanted, it will magically shoot your wanted level back up.

 

2) I think (but it does not always seem to work) if you change your appearance while on a multi-shop robbing spree, you can avoid the increase in stars that normally happens (First 2 Shops: 2 Stars, Third Shop: 3 Stars, etc.).

 

3) Loosing a 3 Star Wanted Level earns more RP than 2 Stars, so reducing your stars with disguises will cost you a little bit of RP. Sometimes still worth it if you can't take the heat.

He's never pulled a gun on me when using this method, he has when I used a gun to hold up the store though. I just walk behind the counter, punch and open the register as quickly as possible, this blocks his path and he's just kinda running on the spot beside me.

You don't need a silenced pistol to empty the register yourself.

One way to speed the clerk up if you don't have a mic or don't feel like yelling is to fire warning shots at him. I always shoot the wine liquor bottles. But it speeds him up and you only have to deal with two stars.

Yell at him with your mic. It's the fasted/efficient manner to getting $1000-$1700. Shooting him will give you 3 stars. I just shoot a bottle after he empties the reg to scare him off. Usually he just runs away; occasionally comes back with a gun but I'm already out the door

 

After robbing two your wanted level increases every time you keep robbing. As far as I know there is no way to reduce this. Starts always giving you 3 stars. Changing your disguise while hidden knocks it down to 2 stars. Finding another car after will knock it to 1 star.

Take the money.

Shoot the wall to scare the clerk.

Easly evade 2 stars.

 

If I ever want the cops after me, I have more interesting ways to attract them than just robbing a stupid store.

Who cares about speed, your talking about less than 15 seconds difference if you kill the clerk and grab the cash yourself. You spend that 15 extra seconds trying to avoid a 3 star wanted level. It's stupid there's no need to rush it, cops response time will never be faster than the time it takes to hold up the clerk and have him bag up the money, assuming you didn't have the 5-0 on you before entering the store.

 

Edit: or if someone drives by the store you're in with a tail of police on them you might get snagged before the clerk drops the cash. Its pretty unlikely though.

Park your PV around the block..grab another vehicle...put on mask...rob store...leave in stolen vehicle...lose line of sight..drive to PV..take off mask (lose 1 star)..change vehicles (lose another star)...IF still have another star..just go into cover (lean on car or wall) to speed up lose of final star...

 

Always works 100% of the time..

My biggest problem with the clerks is if they pull a gun on me on my way out it usually causes the helicopter I was in to blink out of existence. That's why I waste him after he drops te bag of cash because you do get less from robbing the register yourself, an even less if you shoot it open.

Rather only get 2 stars.

 

And the intimidation thing is cool, and the thrill that he might shoot at you.
