Non-Contact Missions Guide

Recommended Posts

Tails Prower

I tried to do Potshot from freeroam a week or so ago and I definitely went to the right location in the correct time frame but it wasn't there for me either. Luckily I had a playlist for it anyway so was still able to play it but I was a bit disappointed as I normally do some of the other missions like Coasting and Coveted from the voting screen afterwards.

Right, I will do a thorough check on this over the next few hours and update if there has been any changes.

In an update on this I tried again today to do Potshot and Crystal Clear Out 2 but neither appeared for me on the map. I went to the correct locations at the correct times but nothing. I was a VIP at the time so perhaps that blocked them somehow but I wouldn't have thought that would have any bearing on them showing up. Looks like they may have been removed from the game :(

Just played both in the last half hour (PC). I don't know about the effects of VIP on them though. I can't directly test any other platform but it would be unusual to have them not be available on all 3 platforms.

Hopefully they are still all in the game then. Weird that they didn't show up for me on PS4. I do pretty much always play invite only while in freemode so maybe that effected it somehow but I've never had a problem with them showing up for me in invite only sessions before so probably not.

Okay, I've managed to finish checking all of these missions in game myself now and can report they all still

seem present as per my times at the top of the guide so not sure why they are not appearing for some.

 

I also checked while working as VIP/Bodyguard and again all 8 map marker icons appeared on the map

as normal.

I am still able to access the bookmark I have for CCO3 from the map at any time of day (which carried over when I transferred from 360). Doing the same process again (i.e. bookmarking while in a playlist) though doesn't seem to work on the One though, as I've tried it for Potshot and Coveted within playlists that include those two.

Second report I have had of this so I need to gather some more information fellow forum members!

 

Anyone else experiencing this issue?

 

I spent a great deal of time checking this over the Xmas holiday even recording videos of all the Non Contact Missions which I will be uploading this weekend

but it seems that Rockstar have changed something about them following Executives and Other Criminals update so I need to find out what.

 

My suspicion is that they have removed the corona's from the world map to new players who have not done these missions before but left them in to anyone

who has played/bookmarked them previously which would explain why I am able to still see them as normal.

 

So any new info please post to the topic, I will be doing some more checking myself this weekend.

 

Thank you in advance!

Just a thought, if you haven't got the corona have you made sure you're showing *everything* on your map? As they're not quite normal contact missions they may be hidden by one of the other categories.

Gridl0k you are a genius! That could be the exact reason.

 

I know for a fact that Non Contact Missions comes under the mission option in Hide section of the Interaction Menu.

Please check Interaction Menu and your Show/Hide Options.

 

Make sure you have Missions set to show and please report if the missions appear, I sense this may be the source problem and will

update the opening guide soon once I have confirmation.

I've still got a few playlists that I bookmarked with these missions in from ages ago, and i tried them last night they still work.

You can probably find them with a google search - one of them is named "Coveted 5x Mission" and another is named something like "CCO2COASTINGCCO3POTSHOTCOVETED"

I also have a 16x Coveted playlist !

 

The playlists work as normal, the only bad thing if you fail a mission you have to go straight to the next, but these don't take too long anyway.

 

I'm always looking for more mission playlists that may exist out there so let me know if you find any please ! I will link the ones I have here if I can find them, if anyone shows interest

The main purpose of the guide though was to tell people how to find/play them individually but it's a sensible idea as those playlists come in handy

when on the quest for more in game cash! So feel free to add the links.

Social Club > GTAV > GTA Online tab > Playlists

 

It should be sorted by 'plays', keep scrolling down and you'll see plenty of Mission playlists you can add to game.

Yes, what Gridl0k said.

What I actually did (and I just had a quick look for some more) was go to the social club playlists page, as listed in the post above and then use the text search box.

 

I searched "Potshot" "Crystal" "Coveted" "Dirt Road" "Factory closure" and a few other terms, and found a lot of new ones i've added now too!

 

Remember, if it says there is only 1 job in the playlist, this only means that there is 1 mission inside, but doesn't tell you how many times it's repeated, so it could be 16... so check them manually if you want for example, 3 potshots in a row or whatever.

 

Here's a few good ones I found: (These are on XBOX ONE, I'm unsure if they are on other platforms but have a look)

http://socialclub.rockstargames.com/games/gtav/xboxone/playlists/playlist/xnO65UsAX02PkhTH90uMhw- CCO3, Coveted, Potshot, Factory Closure, Coasting. Found by searching "Contact missions" - bit of variety in this one which is good.

 

http://socialclub.rockstargames.com/games/gtav/xboxone/playlists/playlist/i0cIOYTdZEqVo4AOtzDS6w- Coveted x5

 

http://socialclub.rockstargames.com/games/gtav/xboxone/playlists/playlist/VO5nMOAsF0qjwyHGuvQpsA- Dirt Road x5 - I've never actually done or heard of this mission so I'm looking forward to trying it !

 

http://socialclub.rockstargames.com/games/gtav/xboxone/playlists/playlist/BOGxviaHpkiacqmWwGZjuQ- Coveted, Coasting, CCO2, CCO3, Dirt Road, Coveted, Coasting, CCO2, CCO3, Dirt Road - found by searching "missions"

 

there are usually a lot of coveted x16 ones to sift through, they don't really interest me as the chances of getting people to join a 16 job playlist is slim, and then you can't extend the timer between jobs in a playlist if someone leaves, so you end up on your own and have to quit out !

On ps3 its different.

 

That's not true because I have all 8 bookmarked on my map as a yellow star. I can start any one of them anytime I want. Truck Together is removed totally.

 

I used playlists to find them and during the playlist after each completion of the mission I would bookmark it. As long as I played the mission with another player and did not solo it the bookmark would save and would appear after rebooting GTAO.

 

Put your psn tag in here I'll send you an invite to the mission of your choice, not a playlist. PS3

Thanks for sharing, I guess the system actual still works on Ps3, just it's a broken mess on the current crop of consoles/PC.

What ever happend to Chemical Extraction? Have fond memories of that mission and wish it's return. Surely it doesn't clash with the Humane Labs heist?

I wish I had kept my original PS4 playlist of all the missions, my biggest regret ever in game.

 

If someone does have a full playlist for PS4 please share!
