Yeah, prox mines stay active in a session as long as you do. Found out the hard way too. 

 

yeah, had an active one which i activated hours later and died. thought someone joined my solo public lobby and killed me. started to prepare for a big fight and as i realized theres no other human there ive started to kill several dozens of NPCs until i felt ive proofed myself it wasnt my fault.

Lol, this is exactly what I thought too. "Damn! Someone got in my super secret session!" But it was a prox mine I left there ages ago, during an NC sell mission. I remembered dropping another on the same street and rode the route backwards to see if they were still there. Then I noticed a few cars blowing up in the near distance and a 2 stars Wanted level on my head. Then I knew the other prox mine had been triggered. 

It's funny how prox mines don't get triggered by NPC cars during a delivery mission, but do so in freeroam.

If you think you've left a live mine somewhere but you don't know where, the good news is that you can only have 5 out at a time. If you drop 5 more, they'll replace any older ones on the map. Vehicle proxies share this limit with the throwable ones, so you can do this for free if you have a vehicle so-equipped.

I always enjoy driving back along the freeway after a sell mission and watching the cars in the other lane blowing up.

Saw this a few days ago but never really managed to get anywhere with it... so I guess players were originally going to be allowed to name their own nightclubs, but the idea was scrapped in favour of the presets.

Office and MC Clubhouse names are set in a similar manner, so this perhaps adds to the original idea of the After Hours update being rushed.

Vehicle homing missiles won't lock on to player vehicles if you have your Player Targeting Priority set to attackers. Confused the hell out of me.

I noticed this for the first time last week. I decided to go on a rampage and I looked like a tool flying around in opmk2 missing the players over and over. I think I have mine set to strangers now.

I'm not 100% sure about this, but I think if you get mugged or if you mug someone and if you don't kill the mugger yourself you can only get 2k cash from it even if the mugger took 10k.

Just found out there are tons of youtube videos mentoring tryhards on how to kill themselves even faster then rpging yourself. 

Imagine taking so much pride in your Kd, that you are searching how to better kill yourself. 

Oh, and its official, buzzards are useless against Oppressors. I do not know what about a buzzards homing launcher likes to pivot a few feet last second, but considering an oppressor is no more that a foot wide, a buzzard is very obsolete even against standing still players.

Hmm so when creating a new character it says bank and cash in the top right, also you start off with a pistol and stone hatchet instead of just the pistol now. Another thing is I noticed running is slower on this new character than my older one. Also some of the unlocks you needed a higher rank for are now unlocked at rank 1. You also get a abominable snowman mask in your inventory now when creating a new character...

^Running slower? I guess that it due to Stamina.

A cutscene plays for players in a nightclub when the owner swaps DJs, showing the new DJ(s) exchanging their post at the turntables and moving the non-owner players to the entrance hall of the club.

And I can confirm I have never got anything from the Mugger if he mugs the target, flees and survives.

 

I have to kill him everytime if I want to get the money.

You are supposed to kill the mugger too. I dont know where you got the idea that wasn't involved. 

Stalking players and getting them mugged, and claiming the reward is one of my favorite things to do to assholes. So i can confirm, you guys have obviously never taken the time to go all out and reclaim. If i ever did a heist or missi9n with someone and they are being an asshole, like sabotoging us i will often get them mugged as soon as the mission end and we spawn in free roam.

You started off with a stone hatchet and abominable snowman mask because you unlocked them on your first character. On a new account, you won't have either of those things. I guess your first character has a 'fast run' enabled, which came about in various ways and sometimes happened randomly.

If you kill the mugger fast enough, you get 10k. If he gives it legs and you take a bit more time, 2k. Maybe there's increments inbetween but I don't think so.

Nah, I think it happens when the cops kill the mugger or another player does.

I've been trying with chaff (or at least to get them mad, like they do when you shoot flares with the blimp :lol:) but had no success yet.

The NPC in the Biker Resupply mission that you have to beat up to reveal the location of the van is interesting. 

He starts off with 1000 health and every time you punch or melee him, he gains health. Shooting him can drain it though, and with explosives. 

 

Some of the dudes inside Tequi-La-La on that mission seem invincible to start off with and I'm not sure if it's a glitch. They can be punched several times and don't lose any of their 200 health value. I'm not sure what triggers them to suddenly start losing health but I guess it could be related to how many enemies there are remaining.

This is the guy who dies with one punch every time I do this mission...

I'm pretty sure that I have always got the amount the mugger takes, whether it's a short chase or a long one.

I'm really used to having leaks for upcoming updates but it seems that we aren't getting any new ones since Yan2295 decided to not give out any more info, so my question is this, when can we expect an official announcement and how close will it be to the actual release? 

I only started playing the game after Doomsday so I'm not really in the know.

Watch the Newswire particularly thursdays and fridays. Not much else to do.
