Daily Objectives: tips and tricks

Well my method is still seems to be working about making sure I'm not spotted after the stars are flashing as not failed Escape xx Wanted Stars all week, all done first time.

 

I think we must all conclude these issues affect different players in different ways and that there is no absolute way to ensure completion every time on 1st go.

Agreed. Honestly, I think the fact that there are so many variables for each and every object interacting with each other is to blame (e.g. take a look at how many variables there are just for a single gun!).

While they give R* a huge amount of control over how they operate, I suspect they're also the source of numerous bugs. The potential for conflicts and anomalies in an open world game the size of GTA Online is almost endless--a quick glance at the bug fix patch notes indicates that.

*sigh*

 

Once again the game randomly does something unexpected with daily duties. Played for 13 days on my main account all objectives complete and no

apparent refreshes/resets and yesterday evening I was given today's weekly bonus a day EARLY on the 2nd character, wth?

 

Now I am curious to see what happens on my Slot 1 character tonight.

 

So I have a feeling that account is somehow corrupted at Rockstar's end and will never properly pay the weekly/monthly bonuses as on my 2nd account

everything has been fine since I started again on 28 Jan, all bonuses are paying correctly and am guessing this is why the crew emblem bug is fixed

on my 2nd account but not the 1st.

 

I really don't want to retire that profile as it has everything but it's beginning to look like I'll have to abandon trying to get money using daily objectives

unless the next update finally resolves this.

Argh; sorry for the added frustration! Inconsistency is very annoying.

 

On the other hand (adding to the confusion?), although I ran into an "joining session" error on login for one of my characters (initial log in), when I logged in again via Invite-Only, I had a fresh set of DOs...which has never happened for me before--they would always be the completed set from the day before.

 

So I suspect R* is tweaking things in the background (perhaps pre-update tweaks on their end?), but I'm sure they have a lot of work yet to do...

Thank you, this was just one of those moments in GTA Online.

 

I'd just come back from a long day's bus photography (my other hobby) and when I saw it flash Weekly Bonus I was like - what?

 

Still just have to wait and see what the next patch notes bring, fingers crossed!

 

EDIT: Quick update - No Weekly Bonus for Slot 1 so as expected that character has gone into stuck "Daily Bonus" money only but will test

the rest of this week to see if still get with Slot 2 character.

Today my daily objectives blocked after first task. Second task was parachute dangerously. Well, I tried 4 times to no avail. Pulled it off, but no accomplishment. Capture gta 5 different sessions and ZERO interest from other players. Later on tried parachuting again, same prob. Switched to main character an new obj. Pulled two off and last obj was DM...Once again ZERO interest or different game, team DM on 3 sessions. Returned to second character and parachuting...Same issue. Parachute unolded at roughly 4 m above the ground + zero accomplishment. At that time my streak of 14 consecutive days of completing the dailies went down the drain.

 

Aint investing any more time in this stuff.Frustrating to say the least. Especially those obj where you have to rely on other people to participate in very unpopular gaming modes. And I aint even mentioning bugs that mess your progress up to a complete and utter halt...Damn, I'm pretty pissed atm... ;-(

PC... What was even more frustrating was one player joining, you fire it up.... And they don't even have the decency to wait for it to start up before leaving... No, as the host I was immediately kicked off the job, as he left in the time it was starting up... Wouldn't have mattered anyway, as it was probably as bugged as the parachuting accomplishment :(

 

It's frustrating. I'm all about investing effort and I was aiming at the 28 consecutive days, but right now, I could have used my time better and more rewarding moneywise... Ah well, I still love the game, but daily obj are problably a thing of the past here...

On parachuting dangerously, sometimes you need to reload the game for this to trigger, like the escape wanted level.

Well I think I've finally found the problem on my bugged account and weekly bonus objectives are back on track!

 

2 weeks completed now. What I've found has been happening is that I complete my first objective as soon as I get in the session and then move

onto the next one or job related daily duty on the assumption the game has saved progress when launching the job but I discovered by accident

yesterday this is not always the case!

 

Yesterday I had complete Non Contact Race, Parachute from 650feet and Collect an Ammo Drop so I did collect an ammo drop on launch and

then did the non contact race and came back to free roam, both objectives ticked, I then tried to launch a Parachute Quick Job but with the

current matching problem I had to leave it for later.

 

So I logged on later in day and completed that objective as host of a parachute job, no Daily Objectives pop up, checked the tasks and found

Non Contact Race had unchecked itself so I had to re complete and then was awarded the daily payout.

 

I guess worth doing the old outfit change after returning to free roam from a job to ensure it saves the progress.

Strange; I've never encountered the issue of an objective uncompleting itself--just not registering in the first place (as just happened last night--the usual evade two-star wanted level not registering on first attempt; second attempt did).

What I have found (good news this time) is that it appears R* has fixed(?) DOs not refreshing if you encounter some kind of error on login. Had the one below (granted, not a network error per se, but still) for both chars, but each had new DOs:

BTW, am assuming the correct Ft. Zancudo parking lot that has been mentioned that apparently qualifies for the "Steal a vehicle from the military base" DO is the one below? If so, it didn't work with a military truck that I tried to steal (this was some weeks ago; just finally getting around to posting about it--second screenshot below). I incorrectly assumed it was outside the military base walls, meaning you didn't get any wanted level, but obviously that was wrong. :) I ended up just paying Lester for the Cops turn a blind eye, and stealing a Buzzard, which worked as usual...

I'm pretty sure this used to work, because I remember stealing one of those trucks before and completing the objective. However, this was last summer. I've seen Buzzards occasionally spawn at Zancudo, it would be good to know if they work one way or the other for the objective.

Whenever I need to steal a military vehicule, I fly over there with my hydra, jump out and parachute next to a Lazer... Get in and that's enough... I try to get away, but if I die, I completed... This is one of the nicer and Failsafe obj...But the objectives in which u need more than one, they tend to be a major PITA (for me find other players and to complete) currently...

West side, I'll get that video uploaded when I get home, actually used that car park for 10 of my steal 20 vehicles a couple of days ago

with Lester paid for the appropriate Cops Turn Blind Eye.

 

Been spending a lot of time near Fort Zancudo as BF Surfer hunting of late.

^^ Not sure exactly which kind you're looking for, but some BF Surfers can sometimes also be found driving around the east side of the large mall (just east of the central LSC) during Denial of Service.

I thought the game wouldn't give you objectives you cant do yet? Yesterday my level 33 character on my alt account got kill a player while off the radar, I called Lester and it said off the radar unlocks at level 40. This is on ps4.

it's close to the bridge at the ocean side.

it's not a big car park which you could easily see from above but rather some parking spaces next to some buildings (inside the fence).

there are not always cars parking/spawning there.

so you gotta fly low along the fence (outside to avoid getting wanted level too early) and just look where a car/truck is parking (or more).

some soldiers will spawn there immediately when you land your chopper but the tanks need a little more time to arrive there.

but no need for cops turning blind eye.

as soon as you turn on the engine of a vehicle it counts as stolen, so no matter if you get shot afterwards.

 

by the way all vehicles from inside the fences will work for that daily (also buzzards)!

I'm not sure that is the case now, I tried to steal one of the Barricks half cab trucks from the car park last time and it didn't

count towards the objective only if it was a normal car, I will experiment next time!

the barracks usually work.

must be that bug which sometimes appears that it doesn't count like the wanted level bug.

I'm still going to need a mini-map location or screenshot before I find it. lol

 

It must be really obscure or I'm still blind as a bat; having flown around the base in my Buzzard, I didn't see anything that stood out as a parking lot (other than the east side one)...

With apologies for double post but it appears I am finished with daily duties as of tonight if I don't get paid.

 

I thought I was finally sorted and everything going okay with daily duties money on both accounts and then BAM! - Day 28 ends in failure!

 

I've just rechecked when I posted my success and sure enough I made that post 4 weeks ago today as my weekly/monthly bonus is paid on a

Wednesday so yesterday 23/03/2016 I "should" have been paid both my Slot 1 and Slot 2 characters 28 day bonus - nothing on either character

just standard money - so reset again or I can only hope that there was a "delay" and I get the 28 day bonus when I play tonight.

 

To say my mood went downhill yesterday was a slight understatement - it had been a hard day at work and I was looking forward to coming home

getting that 28 day money so I could finally rebuy the Entity XF and do it up with one of my custom plates FM16PAN but sadly it didn't happen

and I wasn't very happy so I shut the game off.

 

There really is no point now trying to use this method to get the money I would like to have, it didn't help that I ended up having to play that spawn

trap Raid - Claustraphobia and ended up getting killed 30 times just to find out I didn't get my bonus, if it had paid might not have been so

annoyed.

 

I just have to hope it pulls the same trick that happened last time and it's just delayed the pay, I will do tonight to see but looks like it's the end

of my money building for the time being.

I feel your pain, man... I'm off the daily obj train as well...After this week's Daily Objectives malfunctioning over here and the extreme lack of interest of most players in the included gaming modes, I only do them individually when I can do them on my own. Yesterday I had luck... Three obj I could do on my own... But today... Another Capture hold with ZERO interest for five sessions... If I'm lucky I can as some gta friends to just join and fire it up, after which they can leave, but today I had no luck. Wasted 70 minutes chasing another completion... For me it's done... That's sad, as I loved doing them, but having to beg people to join extremely unpopular, and in most cases for most, unwanted gaming modes, I'm off for more satisfying and rewarding GTA-activities...

Yeah, honestly, DOs are one of the few things that motivate me into playing for a while each night...pretty sad, but true.

 

IMO GTA Online needs a major refresh and infusion of new fixes, improvements, and additions to freemode gameplay (read: not another cars/weapons/clothes and *cough* adversary mode DLC), or my time spent with it will continue to shrink.

Agree, we can but hope there is a patch just for that at some stage, it's a shame that such small things can cause so much affect

on enjoying the game.
