I didnt know there was a special leaderboard for Rally races where you can see your best laptimes as driver or co-driver. You can select between the two and even see who was you teammate in that run.

If you're in passive mode in a Rhino, you show up as passive, rather than in a tank on other people's radar

Cool think I found out is because they Rockstar let players pick up tanks again with the cargobob players can now get the npc tanks driving around in Fort Zancudo and take them to the city and watch them cause havoc.

 

The sad part about it is the tanks for some reason barely spawn like they used to so you can't do it all the time. Also the npcs act really weird sometimes and get out the tank when you take them to the city or get themselves stuck

 

I saw this post but since I play in solo lobbies (noone to bother my operations, but most importantly no threat from cheaters) I can't really try it out... or can I...2kEwtZw.jpg

Don't jump out of an Avenger when it's in a vertical climb. Very bad things happen to your squishy body...

Also avoid jumping out of the backseat of the Akula. :p

Using the mod shop in the Avenger pulls you out of passive mode. I was sitting in there customizing my Barrage when all of a sudden some modder blows up everyone in the session including me. Scared the sh*t out of me since I was in passive when I went in the mod shop. I am aware that piloting the Avenger pulled you out of passive, but I didn't know simply sitting in the interior did as well.

It notifies you literally the moment you enter it while in passive. Its not hard to miss.

It didn't say it when I took my Barrage into the mod shop. That was the first time I entered the interior outside of the Act II finale.

I don't know if this is connected, i remember some guy was chasing me for kills, but i was in passive. I was like all chill and stuff, but he killed me and i realised that he/somebody else was constantly taking off my passive mode. This happened for like 3 times without any notification.

When you drive a car while holding "duck" button,it's hard to steer.It's same like in SP mission "deep inside",where you steal car (JB 700) with woman and she interrupt you while driving.

APC stealing (Gunrunning supply mission): not only the Valkyrie fires the explosive cannon now, the APC itself does too. :catspider:

Speaking of Valkyrie cannons being usable by NPCs now, I wonder if this means that Stanley the friendly NPC from No Hay Bronca(Contact Mission) can also use it if he sits on the passenger seat?

Last time I ever got him to use a vehicle weapon was the Insurgent Pick-up's turret. If he can use the flak gun, then boy oh boy will this make the destruction phase of that mission much more fun.

If you have no money, but own a hangar, you can request a plane, but it simply won't be delivered. There will still be the normal cooldown before you can request again.

 

You have until the game tries to take utility payments ect. after going broke, before you lose your mechanic services.

 

Upon increasing your balance you have to wait for the utility charges to hit again before services are restored

Yeah, first time I seen thing guys was like 2 months ago. Seen I think all the other street performers of online way before but this one was new to me as well. Nice touch.

In the loading screens you have these tips sometimes coming by. One of them mentions the ducking with the reason for it being hard to drive is because you cant see where your going.

If you play in first person, you probably won't see where you're going anyway.

Until 2 days ago, I had no idea that one could shoot down the SAM sites with the cannon in the Volatol setup. It takes a bit of effort to aim and shoot them down though.

When a friendly NPC is inside your car whose windows don't allow shooting, the NPC shows the middle finger instead.

Funny thing happens in Rooftop Rumble. The NPCs driving the two Fugitives show you the middle finger when you wait for them to drive by between the parking lot.

HELL YEAH! STANLEY DOES USE THE FLAK CANNON NOW! He killed nearly everyone in the second phase.

giphy.gif

I had to kill two guys he left behind because he stopped shooting. I thought he died or something amidst the gunfire, but after killing one guy and heading towards the next, Stanley just blows up the dude the second the guy fires one shot.

Man I hope there will be some more PvE focused missions where we get allied NPC followers so that I could get them to take the passenger seat of the Valkyrie and the Hunter. Light em up boys!

^Hmmm, do you think there's any way we could trick some AI in freemode into using the cannon on the Hunter?

 

Also, I didn't know you got a warning when a strike team was sent after you. That kind of takes away from it a bit. I thought they just came out of nowhere.

-Strike_Team_Notification.png-

Well there is one possible way that this could be achieved. You know how when a player leaves the session, their character becomes an NPC? Well sometimes when a player leaves while manning a turret on a vehicle, they can start shooting at cops if there are any shootouts going on.

 

This happened on last gen with me and a friend using the Technical. This also happened recently with me getting lagged out while in the gunner seat of the Khanjali. So perhaps this could work if a player leaves the session as a Hunter's gunner.

 

Plus the AI does know how to use the Hunter's machine gun while I was testing in Captures. Therefore it's highly possible that this could work in freemode.

 

One thing to note is that this is a very unreliable result when testing this, as NPC player models usually end up braindead during any combat in the area. They tend to just bail from the vehicle when the vehicle becomes stationary.
