Why aren't heists done in the free roam environment?

4 Players and heists are already a mess. Just try and imagine how much of a clusterf*ck it would be if the entire lobby was involved.

at the very begining of GTAO I was expecting this, now I am glad they didnt do this

if they do this is heist, I would expect we will have 10 tanks waiting or helping the cops

I once thought this would be cool. It would have opened up opportunities to steal the rewards...unfortunately it would have turned into an unplayable clusterf*ck, be thankful Rockstar didn't decide to do this.

Why doesn't the Yatch spawn in freeroam every weekend, why is the aircraft carrier not in freeroam spawning ai hydras when you get a 5 star wanted level, why can I only enter that one bar during the finale of the first heist, why am I still typing...

For the fleeca job, yes.

Exactly as it is for the tutorial, but we can do it on the fly

 

*edit

Or maybe a lester activity & couple it with the distraction activity.

aaah that would give me a reason to destroy my tank in front of fleeca bank and stay around in passive so the destroyed tank wont despawn!

 

blockade the entrance of the garage so you cant steal the kuruma.

 

camp around the police station to kill you as you try to steal the documents from the police station for the prison break.

like starting a gang attack? It feels so lonely during a heist

because every other contact mission takes you out of an open session....was the answer really that hard?

Not a good idea.

 

Wouldn't want a player in a Savage attacking you or a player setting proximity mines when getting away from the FLEECA introductory hist.

Because of people like me.

 

I'd spend my days near the bridge at Fort Zancudo. Me and my trusty homing launcher (homie) would ensure that no-one would ever progress past the Fleeca Bank heist.

If it happens, Rockstar should make the heist players invincible and transparent so that no one starts to troll or grief like if they all were in passive.

or....or... sit at the prison until they retrieve the bus, get a one star wanted level and follow the bus....they'd never lose their wanted level.

Imagine being chased by 3 player controlled jets & savages, + all the 10 year old sticky - zentorno fags.
Yeah,... fun... so much fun... not.

The only part of Heists I would love to see brought into freemode is the aircrat carrier (with similar mechanics to Zancudo).

But opening up the fleeca banks for mini freeroam heists would be cool. Ok only glorified shop robberies, but all the same.

 

As I said earlier, couple it with lester's distraction activity it could be fun. (oops I said the f word)

one day it 'll come.

 

all jobs will take place in free roam, next to the other players. every race, every mission, heist etc.

 

it'll just need bigger servers, and a perfect system for not being able to troll in any way.

 

and only one heist of each can be done of course...

 

BUT probably not within the next decades.

I'm sure that would have been the original aim for a game like this but it's just that extra bit complicated. Like playlistable missions,too hard basket.

They should have made some free roam mini heists for sure much like store robberies but more heat.

well , trolls can crash your heist or KSing you

haha, KS, remind me for those days in high pass hold in everyquest

we had store robberies for 1.5 years.......

if you want more heat, just shot the guy after you get the money.

did you actually played the game?

It would be an unplayable mess, and think of the connection issues in public servers.

Yeah, just imagine the trolls.

 

Why is there a blockade in front of the bank doors?

 

no sh*t right?

 

"go to target vehicle and steal it"

 

*troll puts sticky bomb on target vehicle and waits, players enter vehicle, BOOM! heist failed.*

In theory it sounds fun, but imagine being in the middle of a getaway and you cross paths with a 16 player race. Mega pileup, mega rage.

Also like others have stated, trolls.

yeah i think you should be able to rob tellers at the fleeca banks for ~ $25k or so in free roam. instant 3-4 star wanted level and if you don't get away from the cops in a certain amount of time, the money bag blows up or something.

Robs bank. Someone else sneaks in and snatches the money.

 

Cry.
