The "buy all ammo" button is a scam

Recommended Posts

Adeel007

It appears on a mission screen before you start - it is telling me to buy all ammo for $20k but I checked my ammo for all my guns before to test it - I had almost full ammo in all my guns including rockets and grenades and the most it would cost would maybe be 3 or $4k - but why the hell is the buy all ammo button quoting me $26k there is no way it costs that much to max out my ammo - Have R* done this on purpose or is it a mistake - try it.

Why would anyone even bother to use that option?

it usually works correctly but occasionally it is way off and im not sure what exactly causes it, but i use it all the time and only get screwed maybe 10 percent of the time, haha! Its much faster and easier than individually buying ammo for each gun and i go through lots of ammo regularly.

nah, if its over like 10K or something it makes you confirm you wanna spend that much and gives you an option to back out.

They only added that about 2 patches ago - before I would be wasting so much money on it

I use it for the convenience. I dont want to have to go to Ammunation and go gun to gun purchasing ammo, when I can simply one click it and be done. Never noticed it being off, at least by what I would get nuts and make a post about. Im willing to lose a couple g's, to make my game day easier.

I wait until all my guns get down to 1k to buy ammo, it last about 2 weeks. Never buy mini gun ammo just die in survival with your mini gun equipped for 1 wave next wave you will have full ammo.

Only reason it's ever been anywhere near $20K for me was because I had 1 or 2 sticky bombs left

Those things are expensive :/

This is the same for me. Never had a problem but it's never more than a couple g's for me. I'm always re-ing up on ammo, snacks, and now armor.

Never been a problem for me. It also saves you the trouble, and risk, of going to Ammunation. Just a thought, there ought to be an option in Ammunation to buy all ammo.

yea i usually just mash it to get it to the next screen then to actually start it, but on 2 occasions ive been on that and 9999 of each bullet costs a LOT

I can do Potshot by myself, and when I start up another one, the "Buy All Ammo" option is only $57.

For me, the Buy All Ammo option is a convenience. I'd rather have something and not need it that need something and not have it. Should The Zombie Apocolypse come to Los Santos, I am prepared.

Incidentally, when I was doing Survivals to raise my secondary character's shooting skill, it eventually got to a point where I was losing money from the Survival match, because it would cost more than 20K to replenish my ammo. Not that I was wasting ammo, but when your ammo capacity goes from 1000 rounds to 3000 rounds, there's a drastic increase in cost.

It could be glitched but people need to realize ammo can be expensive. All my guns were maxed out but my sniper was near empty and the cost for full ammo was 70k. I was like naahhhh that can't be right...went to Ammunation and sure enough, that's what it was to fill up just my sniper(s).

Keep mine full these days, usually costs me less than a grand unless I've got RPG/C4 happy in free roam

I just tend to buy ammo from Ammu-nation or for each individual gun. I never use buy all ammo because as for certain guns I never use them, so no point buying ammo for something I am never going to use.

Unless you're still carrying those guns you don't use, you wouldn't be refilling their ammo anyway.

I do carry those guns though, thats why I dont use the 'buy all ammo' option.

i got 9999 of all ammo at some point so this button works fine for me. not more than 10k most of the time. though i don't understand, why would you need 9999 of heavy sniper ammo.

There is a bit of a scam going on with MG/CMG ammo. On occasion, there is a slight difference if you buy the cheapest "full MG" ammo option than if you get the "all ammo" due to MG reload being 108 rds and CMG being 200 rds.

 

Oh, and for sniper ammo, just call ammo drops; it is the only time they are efficient at replenishing ammo. I think you pay ~2/3 the cost of Ammunation but it takes longer.

no it definitely bugged occasionally and im not sure what causes it but i play lots of missions and most often its normal but every now and then it jumps up to 15-20K when i havent fired a shot from the last time i bought all ammo. might be from trying to join friends sessions and failing to get into them and getting kicked back out to a different one. it says it saves when you switch sessions but maybe it doesnt always work or something. all i know is that every once in a while i get charged an extra 20K or so for ammo that i didnt use but since i have millions and can make 20K in about 5 minutes i really dont care that much.

Pretty much this. Did it with my newer character quite early on, and it's just been a case of topping up $500 here, $100 there - with my main character, there was one big dent in my finances doing it the first time (particularly because I'd gotten used to only carrying a handful of explosives at any one time), but now, same deal.

 

Very much worth doing - particularly with bombs. That way, there's never a risk of having too little ammo at any given time - and there's no such thing as too much! ;)

exactly, i always keep mine full too, thats how i know its bugged when it charges me 20K when i didnt use any ammo! 20-60K are not uncommon after extended free mode stays but i know how long it takes to use that much ammo and when i didnt use anywhere near that much and no expensive stuff at all it still occasionally says that much.
