Things you didn't know about GTAO until now

Well, YOU may not have known about it until now but lots of us have found it very useful to know that: you Won’t Get A Bounty for stealing any car if you Do It While In Passive Mode. Passive is easy to turn on and off and it’s really nice to just grab a damn car and not draw the heat sometimes! Most FNG’s aren’t aware they can easily bypass the threat so, sharing is caring.

Yeah, but getting a bounty is a fun and easy way to get money and XP.....if you do it in an "invite only" or solo session.....

Never knew this thanks. Does it apply to stealing Simeon cars?

I don't think you get bounties when stealing cars for Simeon. However, this trick does help when you've got daily objectives that require you to steal 10 cars.

I see. I've gotten wanted levels stealing Sentinal's to sell myself and when it's a Simeon car I get wanted every time.

It's not about wanted levels, it's about getting a bounty on your head. You will get a wanted level when stealing cars, even in passive mode, but not a bounty.

Unsure if it's been brought up before or not (not looking back through 536 pages), but if you haven't gotten the Simeon SMS Text about the Export cars, but you get the Two-Star Wanted level, like it's coming within some time soon in-game, for stealing a car (that's going to be ON the list), you can still delivery that car and get the money.

Yeah, the traffic spawns will start to include the cars on the list, which becomes a nuisance when you start to get 2 stars stealing traffic cars while trying to do something else. I used to prioritise stealing a car that would be on the Simeon list early in a session so that I could sell it and get rid of that automatic wanted level.

 

The Simeon list that included the Tailgater was also one of the few ways to get one to spawn in free roam, due to this changing of the spawns. I'm assuming the new lists don't include it though.

The Fleeca Job.

 

You can aim the Flashlight at the hostages to keep the imtimidation meter raised. If you're wondering how I came to find that out, let's just say when you're the Driver on the Fleeca Job and it lasts 37 minutes, you tend to try and keep yourself occupied to stop yourself going insane.

 

This game is 7 years old and there's still new ways of finding humour in it, to have NPC's screaming and cowering in fear because some guy's shining a torch in their face has me picturing the whole clientele of The Pacific Standard lying on the floor screaming in fear because two guys are walking around shining torches on them light cinema ushers pointing out chairs.

When you bring a car for Export to Simeon, you can add your crew's Emblem as well.

 

Spoiler

More Casino Heist stuff:

 

You can hijack the Cargobob (roof/helipad entry) during the Aggressive approach, but not Silent & Sneaky.

 

What's even more interesting is that during Big Con with the Yung Ancestor disguise you can shoot a guard outside and the heist will (obviously) turn aggressive, but it means you won't have to watch that long, non-skippable cutscene, and when you come out, you will still get to use Yung's Furia for the getaway.

 

That's a pretty fun way to do this heist. Yohan (5% hacker) should be enough for a good 2-player team to get all art on hard*, and I'd recommend using Packie (8% gunman) for his compact rifles.

 

*edit: Or use Paige to be safe.

If your property, like a safehouse or business, is close to a road and you want to have your Personal Vehicle outside, you can call one of your Personal Vehicles by calling the mechanic, he usually will deliver your PV near your doorstep but not all the time though.

 

This works on my Casino Penthouse but it doesn't work on my Stilt House, 2044 North conkers drive.

I don't know if it's just me because I just never noticed I guess but I just now noticed that there is loud ass radio music playing in the casino. I literally never noticed it until now. Heard BSB blasting over the noise of the slots and was like WTF is that? lol

As if to underline the fact they don't know their MLRS from their SAM, Chernobog does this when you fire, but you can't see it if you're the one firing;

You can actually die from smoking. You just have to keep walking and smoke otherwise you'll regen too fast while standing still.

You lose health from strong vehicle crashes and collisions but you can't die from them.

 

To prove this, just get any car that low enough to wedge itself into the underside of a overpass and build up some speed towards, if you crash it right your car will wedge itself in and out between the underside of the overpass, damaging the vehicle and making you lose health...But even when it reaches the minimum of the HP bar you still wont die.

Dousing gasoline on them is funnier if you ask me.

I had just tried to do it when I posted that, so I don’t think so.

If you start fortified before, you wont get a wanted Level.
