Is the Bus Setup useless?


Strange Town

Strange Town

A setup where you have to steal a bus surrounded by cops, then evade the Cops so you and another player can enter the penitentiary when the time comes. But in the Heist Finale you have to steal a Prison Bus without all that protection only to torch it. It renders the Bus Setup useless because all they could have done was to steal that unprotected bus to enter the Penitentiary, instead of giving them the job to lose the cops by stealing the protected bus.

Same thing with the BIkes setup for the Pacific Standard Job.

Because it looks cool if you time it right on the finale. Both buses pass by each other, making it look like you "tricked" the tracker into thinking the correct bus was arriving at the prision.

 

 

Also, its so everyone has something to do. Otherwise demo has one long ass drive to that chopper.

And the pilot has one fun flight flying in circles....

They had to make it look like they were breaking out different prisoners, stealing a bus that was reported stolen, then it driving up to the prison after being reported stolen would make no sense.

I've said it before, but how that pilot in prison break got thru the play testers baffles me. A year & a half to fly in behind a jet for 10mins?! Boring as fuck.

This. This is the true definition of R* logic, btw. The sarcastic use of the phrase "r* logic" is mostly justified, but "because it looks cool" is the real driving, underlying philosophy of why they do stuff! Edited by johndivney

Yeah like most of the stuff you do in heists is just for cinematic effect.

But that bus was already heading to the prison. You just take its driver out, and get the players in, and drive it to the prison.

 

And I think driving there with a slow bus is more boring. At least you would drive to the Buzzard with a car of your choice.

I forgive them. Here's to hoping they learn from this and make better thought out heists in the future.

You steal an armored car and someone else steals a cargo bob to rob a small bank in the sticks.

 

For the big flagship bank in the city? Four slow bikes should do it.

The reason for the Prison Break - Bus setup is because it's a decoy bus. They said the other one is fitted with a geolocator so it's the decoy and mcguffin. They explain that in the set-up do you guys not pay attention?

 

Agree about the Pacific Standard finale though. Carrying 1.2 million. Lets put them on unarmored bikes with a gimmicky power up that isn't very effective.

How is the one you steal in the Setup a decoy? You drive that one onto the prison.

The real bus you steal during the heist is the bus they are expecting. You go in place of that bus. They check on the computer to make sure the transponder is roughly in the right spot and you get in.

lol still doesnt make sense.. then the prison guard and prisoner could have just hijacked that bus while demo guy goes straight to the buzzard.

The reason is explained when you steal the plane and bus. The whole point behind it is to draw attention away from the breakout, and to put blame on the gangs.

Exactly. My best guess is that the setup bus is needed because the bullet holes in the windshield/blood everywhere would give us away at the gate.

 

Thats what I'm telling myself anyways.

Right with a dead guard in it a smashed in windshield and brain matter all over the seats. Cause that doesn't look suspicious at all going to a PRISON.

seems like we still had a sh*tload of attention. NOOSE, helicopters, f*cking fighter jets.. everything that could go wrong, went wrong.

Idk, I like it anyways. I feel like everyone has an individual job, and I like that the "prisoner" has the added challenge of no weapons. I liked it.

Those bikes are awful. Did better in a stolen cop car.

He takes the driver out when he enters the prison. But the smashed window explanation is a good one and so is the decoy.

I look at it as a back up plan. What if there was 1 escort that you kill before they can radio out? Maybe someone saw you kill a few cops and stole the bus. That could be why that one guy with the shot gun tries to kill you when you get close to him.

Actually Agent dickwad sold the Hydra, possibly the armed Insurgent too.

I was thinking about this the other day as well. All they would have had to do is make it so the person playing prison guard detonates a bomb planted on the bus you drive in and have it take out a group of police, facilitating the escape. Then it would have made having to get the bus ahead of time actually make sense.

There's some logic. Didn't The Agent say that bus was supposed to be on time? If so they would've needed to steal a bus and get to The Prison before the Guards got suspicious.
