I discovered you can buy shoes in Ammunation about 1 second ago

You know you can swap lock-on targets with L1/LT on the buzzard or jet? or that all helicopters can float on the sea surface?

I've just discovered this morning that you can buy shoes at Ammunation...most of you probably know this and even more probably don't care...I don't even care apart from the fact that I never knew this

Going off the radar and taking the easy way out can get you out of some sticky situations

I love going off the radar and have another player just walk right towards me to get shot because he/she is presuming in gonna try and come up behind them haha

I wonder how many people know that you can carry 10 armors at a time? Last week I was accused of hacking or whatever because the other two nimrods on the mission died and I was fighting off the NPCs and restoring my armor at will. They were freaking out on voice chat until I told them to check it out.

I learnt that if you stop at a red light next to a car, hold the handbrake and rev the engine, the NPC in the car next to you will race you.

Really? thats a game-changer right there!
Although someone argued before that they are actually just terrified of you and want to get away from you asap...and it might be true because I tried it once and the guy got out and pulled me out of the car to beat the sh*t out of me hahah

 

Or he gets out and tries to punch you to death.

I'm German and didn't notice this until a week ago, what a shame.

I've never seen this before. Where is it located?
I think it's near the Spawn after you play Coveted.

 

must be new then :S I have never seen it; but have been there multiple times... :p It's behind the mountain with the Vinewood logo :)

 

 

...and this wasn't htere before the patch.

I have noticed a lot of new "signs"" around the city and blaine county since the update. (e.g. neon signs or new billboards)

Just found this out!!

 

The scenario is this, you have two garages. One is full and the other has at least one empty slot. When you drive a new car into the full garage, instead of it forcing you to replace one of those vehicles and lose the old one, it will send the old one to your other garage! How handy is THAT?!?!

Yeah, I've noticed this myself....now follows the head wrecking puzzle of arranging them they way you want haha

I hope someone can confirm this, but I heard that you can press A/X when in a cropduster to release smoke/pesticide.

You can. I've done it. I've been told that other people in the session can't see it.

Yes, that works, but only the pilot can see it, not even the passenger, and it doesn't harm other players...

Here's one I just recently found out.

 

The Gallivanter Baller, which sells for 9K as I'm sure everyone knows, has TWO totally different models! I couldn't believe that after chasing down this truck since the very beginning to sell daily, that there was a second one I could have been taking but kept passing up because I thought it was something else! lmao

 

Also, I just recently discovered the Ocelot Jackal! This car is sweet. Classy.

Like this http://prod.cloud.rockstargames.com/ugc/gta5photo/6457/BuhJl9jXikyO_UWGKGANtQ/0_0.jpg

 

/D

 

Exactly.

The one on the left I've known about since week one or two. After I got my 2nd garage I pretty much filled it with every Baller I came across for the 9k/day.

I used to pass up the one on the right as I thought it was just like a Landstalker that only sold for 3-4k. I recognize them both right away now from the 2 little vents they have by the front doors.

Yeah I'm pretty sure this is the case. If you have headphones on and can hear really well, you'll hear them cursing and swearing at you as you're chasing them.(I remember this one NPC kept saying.."OMG! SHlT MA DAMN PANTS!" everytime I bumped him. Hahaha)

Although, when you first pull up next to them at a light and squeal your tires just a little, some of them will actually do it back (if they're in a fast car). But if you keep doin it, they just take off in fear, imo. It's still a good way to race though! And it usually ends pretty epic too. Sometimes hilarious. Especially if it's someone on a motorbike. They usually wipe out pretty spectacularly! lmao

Possible, cant remember if it was there before. The building behind it is where the package runs to in the updated Rooftop.

2 things:

 

1. The front wheel on a motorbike stays in the desired position after getting off the bike.

2. The PS3 controller vibrates very slightly when skidding/drifting.

That you can slide down the rope in the MW chopper. I still haven't got it to work but still.

Also on the roof next the airport LSC you can electrocuted by the power brick thingy.

Needs to be a building higher than what the MW pilot usually flies at, and flat. The tall building at the impound lot works, you may have to move the waypoint a few times to get it right.

And the Tornado sells for $12600 in perfect condition.

 

 

 

WHAT THE f*ck?!?! Are you talkin about the gang Tornado?

 

And here I am chasing down god damn Ballers and Oracles for 9K!

 

Funny that Gta Wikia.com has it listed at 3K. I gotta check this out...

 

Bah. They fooled me Jerry.

 

 

Did it not work for you? I always log of on grove street in my custom Tornado and one always spawns. It always sells for 12K+ for me.

you can rappel to the streets as well. the hight is important though, like you say.

Also try to "stop" the pilot by pressing 'O' (circle on ps3) to make the helicopter stop. you know don't wait until the helicopter reaches the waypoint, stop manually. that way, the "press blah to rappel down" appears much more often.

I just found out yesterday that there's an altimeter on the copilot camera on the Buzzard.

L1 and R1 cycle missile locks on the jet as well as the Buzzard btw.

Are L1 and R1 just the analog sticks for the PS3 controller? lol i play xboxIf you never had a PS1 your probs too young to play this. So many good games back then. Edited by TheMckeever

Well, I wasn't sure if you meant the purple Ballers Tornado, or just any one. I also didn't know the Ballers one even spawned in MP, only SP. Thanks for the heads up!

I've noticed this months ago, but when you're flying at neck-breaking speeds in the Lazer and try to do a quick bank, your plane will pull a fake Pugachev Cobra. I haven't been able to do it lately in clear weather, but it's easier to pull it off in rainy weather.

I don't really understand the terminology here but I would like to know because I'm trying to become a really good pilot in one of these....I was in a lobby with a dude who was destroying the place in a laser...got me a few times on foot...he was unreal...

 

Edit: never mind...I get it now. Cheers :)

There is the yellow one that spawns in the parking lot of the apartments on the other side of the train tracks. I just drive between the two places till one spawns. Has to be a gang one to get the $12K.

I just tried this, and it did not work. I lost the vehicle I chose to replace in the full garage I was entering, and I still have one empty slot in my second garage.
