Daily Objectives: tips and tricks

Recommended Posts

darkgreenmeme

I got another character to 28 days. (third time for that one).

 

 

I still got hit several time with progress resetting for other characters, I'm now thinking that it has something to do with edge conditions -- that the problems occur when playing around refresh time. I also suspect that exiting through creator causes problems ( Online->Creator->Story mode)

And it happened again... Capture hold... I finally found some folks (don't like to give up) and participated... No accomplishment...Retried twice!!!! Still no accomplishment, so NO DO for me today... Luckily it was just the third day of completion, but still... It sucks... Like I said, only doing daily when it doesn't take much time, but no longer streaks for me... Bummer...

Are you saying that it did complete after playing the capture hold? I've seen some problems with this, so now my habit is to always complete the "Participate in..." objective before finishing the other two.

Yep... Capture hold. Hosted it myself.. Finalized it, but nothing... Same as the parachute dangerously this week... Strange... The other obj were 'steal 20 cars' (OK) and Kill a bounty (OK)... But Capture hold: NADA... And I not only participated... I hosted it and finished it.... Ah well :-)

@ darkgreenmeme: Must admit that's a nice spot for a parachute jump (if you're in the area or live up there).

@ Hellbendzor/darkgreenmeme: Sorry you guys have run into those issues. :( I've been fortunate that (AFAICT) my progress has never been reset; many times have been delayed though by the login error issue (in the past). Thankfully, now seems to be fixed..?

 

IIRC I did run into a weird, one-time bug where a Capture - X didn't register as complete...until I changed sessions, and came back in--and presto! instantly registered as complete.

 

Maybe I've been doing it wrong, but I've never worried about any particular order of completion.

I always do "Escape wanted level" first from a freshly loaded game session (starting from a complete game reload). It's a lot better than it was, but it is quite sad that this bug has persisted and probably turned a lot of people off from Daily Objectives. I think parachute dangerously is sometimes acting the same way, but not as often as escape wanted level. However, I don't think it matters on order completion for these, it's just utilitarian to get 'em done first before they won't complete. Ever since the first few times I had problems with "Participate in..." objectives not completing the daily list, I've always made sure it wasn't done last and haven't seen a problem.

Perhaps that's the key... Do those first... I'll try that again... Today it was second one I tried after completing 'kill bounty' (I don't like to kill other people, apart when they're griefing or messing with me)...

Hey, someone paid good money for that player to die. Profit should trump morality in this game. However, pointlessly killing players for no profit, no RP and no reason, that's just signs of severe mental illness.

Well I've never had it not complete the Capture when finishing, in fact that was the first thing I did after login yesterday, no problem but sadly no 28

day payout so I'm now playing up to when I see the weekly bonus come through (if indeed it does) as I am curious to see what day I was reset, I

figure it might help piece together what objective messed things up.

 

I have finally got that video uploaded so I will edit with the link at the end of my shift.

Prolly old, but I've noticed that Golf, Darts, and Arm Wrestling, and Tennis are no longer in the Objectives rotation anymore, which sucks cause it's pretty easy to get any of those done. Why couldn't they have taken out the Bribe Cops one though? Unless you're on the 100k, or 500k bonus, no way am I going to spend 5K for a measly 20K return. Especially if I have something crappy with that set too like Kill 20 Players, or collect a Bounty.

Hello guys! Some months ago i publish detailed article about Daily Objectives [efo-team.com]. :) This article on the russian language. If it help you, i will be glad. :)

I never had an objection to golf or darts. Arm wrestling is possibly the most stupid pointless game mode but it's quick so the only thing that bugged me was completing a match, selecting free mode, then being told I was given a BS point for leaving. Tennis...was miserable. Mostly because the shortest length still took forever for a not very interesting game. If the length options were like the sp tennis options, then complaints would have been far fewer.

I haven't seen any of the sport related objectives for a long time either so I assume they have been removed. If so I think it is a shame. At the very least they could have left the ones in for golf and darts where you just had to play a game as opposed to challenging another player. That would be a nice easy one which you could just do solo.

Did you already complete the Overachiever award? You should have the day count on the progress of that award if you haven't.

To recoup your Blind Eye cost with the Havoc objective, go to the Chumash area where the three stores are grouped together. Do Blind Eye, and as soon as you complete it, rob all three stores without police interference. If you are fast enough, you can also get the store down in Del Perro. You should more than make that Blind Eye money back.

 

Likewise, for "Steal Vehicle from Military Base", I usually do this with "Blind Eye" to avoid the aggravation that comes with the failures -- you can make this money back by going after a few bounties with a Lazer. Most bountied players are too stupid to realize that they are homing missile targets when they stay in their vehicles and that there is no penalty for blowing up the PV of a bounty.

 

"Kill 20 players" is no problem at all if you play a few deathmatches. If you avoid owned-weapon rocket-spamming deathmatches, you can do this at a profit.

On PS3/XB360, I'm sure they are not rare at all.

On PS4/XB1/PC, since the free mode events update, I have not seen any of them once, and I don't know anyone who has.

Before the update, I used to see them reasonably often.

This does not prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are gone but I think it's reasonable.

In the objectives I've been tracking, I haven't seen any of them (golf, tennis, darts, arm wrestling) in 870 objectives to date. You can find a link to my stats on objectives on one of the earlier pages.

Do the missiles from a Lazer or Hydra lock on to players vehicles? I assumed you had to use the cannon if you wanted to get kills in a jet? Not sure if you meant missiles from the jet or that they are just making a target of themselves for people with the homing missile launcher? I do very little public freeroam so I'm kind of clueless in this area of the bounty objective.

In free mode, yes they lock onto player's vehicles and police and military vehicles. They do not lock onto players or NPCs on foot. I'm not absolutely sure, but it may change during certain free mode events, and in other game modes.

All right thanks. I'm ok with the jet cannon but by no means good so I've never really experimented with it much for trying to collect a bounty but if it locks on with the missiles that would make things much easier. I'll try it next time I have a collect a bounty objective.

I'm back, too busy in game over the holiday to post.

 

I've completed Over Achiever ages ago back on PS3 and PS4 so I can't check the progress but I know the dates I started each time.

 

As it turns out I was reset last Saturday as my account that should have had 28 days got a weekly payout on Saturday, not sure exactly what happened

to cause the reset and it's one day I don't have any videos from so can't check.

 

However I am suitably recompensed thanks to *ahem" Sultan RS and recent glitch so I no longer need to complete these daily duties anyway.

Glad the Sultan RS made up for the 28-day reset (has to be very frustrating). :(

 

Any luck with the vid that details the location of the alternate "Steal vehicle from the Military Base"? I think I now know where it is, but am not 100% sure...

Yes it's good to go, just haven't had time for posting the link, too busy "ahem" duping my Sultan RS, I'll get it posted tonight before I come online.

 

Finally here it is! Seems I've somehow ended up creating myself 3 Youtube video accounts! Anyone know if you can merge channels? PM if you do!

^^ Thanks! That most definitely explains it to my poor brain. :) I say that, because my next guess (screenshot below, taken a day ago) was close--but still off. lol Now I know--and it looks like you can pull it off without having to spend $5k to invoke Lester's "Cops Turn a Blind Eye", unless that's also part of your DO list. :) I'm guessing you might not even sustain more than a few bullets if you just fly right in and out as quickly and as close to the car you intend to steal..?

 

Incidentally, the number of parking lots (small or large) at the military base was something I'd never really paid attention to (quite a few!)--probably because once you're inside the base, you're uh, usually fighting for your life. :)

 

FWIW, if you use blind eye to get into the tall control tower, it appears military personnel won't follow you beyond the ground floor even after blind eye wears off and you still have a 4-star wanted level (you'll hear them cussing at you, but that's it). Could be handy if you want some fun watching what people do (or don't do) to get your bounty in a public session. :) Also found out that Lester's "Remove Wanted Level" doesn't work in the base, even when you're completely out of view of any military personnel (I know, "duh"), but Lester just says something like "No" or "Can't do it". lol ;) There's another tidbit I'll just keep to myself or just share directly with friends I trust, because I don't want to give R* any patch ideas on useful things still legal in-game.

I just got my second char's monthly rewards last night, so I can confirm that errors (network, or otherwise--at least on the PC) encountered on login do not reset DO progress, but they do delay it; though I believe even this has now been fixed. I'll do some more testing on that theory before I remove it from the PC bug list and DO tips and tricks pages.

Well glad it was able to be a help, I'm going to seriously have to get to work on my uploads as so many videos I want to share but always run out of time and end up

playing the game constantly.

Heh; yeah, I'm always noticing bugs (I do enjoy the game though--honestly lol) so that's what constitutes the majority of my YT vids. I post them in the hopes that they raise awareness with R* and are addressed at some point in the near future.

 

I'm glad I finally managed to capture a couple

that leave no question as to just how badly
the AI in this game is (or issues that only make the AI worse than it already is). I'm pretty sure the PC uses the same map data as the PS4 and XBox One, so it should be possible to reproduce them on those platforms (possibly even old-gen too?).

 

Anyway, please do post those videos--I've subscribed for when you do.

Yes I will slowly get round to those videos over time, it will be fun to go back through them anyway to see what I got up to as well.

 

Sunday this weekend will be my last daily duties as my brain has now told me it is time to play something else for awhile, probably my access to DOOM

Closed Beta and if the price is right I might pickup Fallout 4 after work today.

 

Anyway's I'll still be around the boards and topics as will be back to check out the Tornado, Minivan and Sabre Turbo upgrades at Benny's when it's

official.

Did they remove the Gang Attack, and Survival objectives since the last couple Updates too? I haven't gotten those to come up in like forever. At this rate, there might only be 5 objectives left that get randomly chosen each day in the next few months.

 

It would be nice if they added some brand new objectives that are fun, but can be a bit challenging as well. Like doing a certan number of flips in a car, or complete a round of golf with at least a 5 under Par, or maybe even get a certain number of kills (npc or players), of a certain weapon type.

I'm pretty sure I've had Gang Attack and Survival since the last update or at least the one before that. (doing dailys on 4 characters) but you are right, they don't seem as common.

I've had survival in the last week, gang attack probably inside of the last week and a half.

Survival is less common for me than many objectives (10 occurrences in 930 objectives); gang attack is fairly common (24 occurrences).
