Daily Objectives: tips and tricks

Recommended Posts

Tails Prower

 

Impromptu Race

One on one DM

Capture Contend

Ugh. I feel your pain; and anyone else starting to really hate Captures? Nothing like getting "randomly" spammed with those almost every day.

 

Grr.

 

Shy* really needs to add a means of selecting what type of capture you're looking to join in "Quick Job" (i.e. specify Capture - Hold, Capture - RAID, etc.). That should drastically improve matchmaking, by letting players easily join existing jobs needing players; not creating more empty lobbies.

 

 

Yes as soon as this objective came out, I hit Rockstars email and their support site with a topic and filed a ticket so I hope they have taken this on board with the update about to come out next Wednesday, if not I will spam them again with the same.

 

I worded it along the lines of It is beyond comphrension why you did not include this option with the daily objectives for capture, as a

player my time is limited and I do not have time to randomly join captures and complete each one in full thus causing frustration to

the host and other players by having to leave the lobby.

 

If you insist on obtaining plays for the capture you must allow this to complete with any type of capture rather than specific or adjust

the user options to accomodate this and do not think that you will get plays by hosting, sometimes perhaps but nobody plays capture.

Glad you've already brought this to R*'s attention--it really needs to be fixed. Match making in general across GTAO suffers because of unresolved issues like this.

 

Anyway, I've just been creating my own Capture - <name> job, then hoping that someone will join. After five minutes or so, someone usually does, but it's typically just one...and I launch the game right away because I don't want to lose them (and the chance to complete the DO).

For anyone who is struggling with the races (other than the Rally), you can just launch a solo race and it will still count. I like to do Panda Grand Prix on 3 laps solo, I get 8k and 1.7k RP in the end. You can also adjust the race Type when you are doing it solo, which eliminates the stress of the Host not putting the game mode to what you wanted it to be ;)

I added this to the "Participate in a Race" entry, since it was empty and it doesn't hurt to have the recommendation of a good race. :) Thanks!

Objectives need to be the same for everyone. That way doing things like rally and impormptu races wouldn't be near impossible

somebody mentioned in another thread that there would be a new daily objective which is "loosing a 2 star wanted level".

this objective might be broken as he couldn't get it checked although he tried a couple of times by loosing it but it didn't count for the objectives.

can anybody confirm this?

^^ I ran into the same problem when trying to lose a three-star wanted level sometime back; nothing I did would work--until I left the session, exited GTA Online (and Story Mode) and then came back and tried again. Then it worked.

 

I would suggest trying that, and see if it helps--it should! Some objectives are just buggy in that regard--requiring a game exit and reload before it recognizes your efforts.

 

As a matter of curiosity (changing subjects a bit); has anyone managed to "satisfy" the Flight School instructor when trying to land a plane with an engine out? Regardless of how close to the "target" I get on the runway (checkerboard circle) or even at the physical block-end, he always says "you could have done better", etc. Thankfully, I always complete the objective--getting a bronze star--it's just annoying that there seems to be no clear definition of where on the runway you're supposed to stop the plane. Am wondering if this isn't a bug?

 

Fixed an issue where stunt jumps that had previously been completed weren’t being counted towards the "Complete a Stunt Jump" Daily Objective.

 

Glad this was finally fixed!

 

Additional methods have been added to complete the "Bribe the Cops and cause havoc" Daily Objective.

 

Has anyone stumbled onto/figured out any of these? ...But why on earth this was tweaked is beyond me--it's never been a problem; the "Participate in One on One Deathmatch" and "Participate in an Impromptu Race" need fixing the most, with boosted matchmaking for subsets of Captures, etc.

yes, the stunt jump is back to the daily objectives and still works with the race "downtown underground".

 

there is a new objective called "participate in a vs. mission".

 

for "bribe the cops and cause havoc" 10 cars have to be destroyed.

i always call my tank and go to the highway for that.

for those without a tank just block one side of the highway with a big vehicle to pile up some cars and then throw stickies/granades into them.

 

for the flight school thing you mentioned, denturedynamite...

i landed the plane and stopped it just a few meters in front of the target/destination/finishing line and got a silver medal for it.

i guess you get gold if you stop the plane just right in front of or even inside the finishing line.

The "participate in a vs. mission" isn't new. :) It's been in the list as "Participate in a Versus Mission". I played one on April 30th (from my D.O. log).

 

Thanks for the new info Re: "Bribe the cops and cause havoc"--I wonder what some of the "new methods" R* claims to have added for qualifying are though? My guess is it might just be shooting NPCs, and not just blowing up their vehicles.

 

Re: Flight School notes: Added--thanks!

That was me, and I eventually did do it later that day by evading 3 stars, so switching sessions seems to be the trick.

I haven't had that issue but the game sometimes won't recognise you completing the wanted stars daily objective if you are in the midst

of another event.

 

Armoured Cars generate 3 wanted stars and yesterday I had evade 3 star wanted level and it didn't check off from the armoured car

but as soon as I did 3 stars on my own it cleared immediately.

 

Same experinece with the 2 star wanted level as if you are in a Simeon car run/HPV it won't check off when you loose the stars before

respraying.

 

Also I can confirm Complete a Stunt Jump is working on PS4 as had that one on Saturday and got it first time in Downtown Underground.

^^ Yeah, it's nice to see some of these bugs finally getting fixed.

 

Don't know if it's new or not (trying to remember), but it's also nice to see some clarification built in to some of the objectives:

Sorry--meant for Master Gabe's post above mine (but your post snuck in before mine lol).

 

And according to funmw2, R* did add something that may well show up in Daily Objectives--"Stunt Racing". Not sure exactly what that entails or how to launch it, but here's the link from funmw2.

How can you save your Daily Objectives 28 day bonus when you are planning an absence from completing it? By the way, I'm on Xbox One.

Parachute dangerously - Jump off the Vinewood Sign (D)

 

The better method is to do a halo jump.

High Altitude Low Opening? If so, yeah--easier in that it gives you more time to pull the chute before you hit the ground. But you'll need a chopper to get that height.

 

Jumping off the "D" requires you to drive to the VINEWOOD sign, but a chute is provided if you don't have one; so some ads/disads with each method...

 

Since I'm lazy, I just stand in the nearest open area, call in a Merryweather helicopter pickup, shoot the pilot, fly straight up (or so) and then jump. :)

How can you save your Daily Objectives 28 day bonus when you are planning an absence from completing it? By the way, I'm on Xbox One.

 

i'm not sure if it works on xboxone, but here is the instruction (you need to have 2 characters):

Saving progress of 28-day-bonus when being absent a couple of days.

Following are the detailed instructions for retaining the progress for the 28-day-bonus while being absent a couple of days (i.e. on vacation):

Char A = the character who is supposed to keep the progress.

Char B = is the other character who can get that progress reset.

1. On the last day playing before absence time, log in first (after refresh/reset time for the daily objectives) with Char B to get his/her list of daily objectives refreshed.

2. Complete the list of daily objectives for Char B (I'm not really sure if that matters but I did it. Maybe you can just leave that list incomplete).

3. The first day after coming back after the absence time, log in first (after refresh time) with Char B to refresh his list.

4. After that, switch back to Char A the next day and refresh his/her list.

 

The progress for Char B should be reset, but the progress for Char A should be saved. (Note: this worked for PS3; not sure about the other platforms).

or even easier, go into one of the wallbreach where you can fall out. Works for all types of jumps.

^^ Interesting that it still works with a wallbreach--good to know the code is simple enough for even that level.

I have 4 star on my current list, while in free roam in an invite only session, I have tried 3 times with no luck. 1st try, I flew over zancudo and evaded the choppers, 2nd try I used a little trick I found, not sure if anyone else knows of it - I drive to a particular spot on the perimeter of zancudo (on the outside) and it gives you 4 stars, then you drive forwards a touch and all the cops and army just gather on the roads and can't get you. That didn't check it off either. 3rd attempt, I just killed a load of cops, hid in the train tunnel but still no award. I didn't even get the 100 rp per star you usually get for escaping cops.

 

Found new session, killed cops lost 4 stars, still nothing. The only thing I did before starting these attempts was a versus mission.

 

Maybe for some reason it will only count if it's the 1st thing you do after starting the game?

 

EDIT#

 

i just quit to the xmb, restarted the game, tried it first time and it worked. How did they manage to f*ck this up? Every update something completely random stops working properly.

That's what a lot of us want to know. Programmers will say that "oh, it's easy to do". I call El Torro Poo Poo on that. It's sloppy programming and sad (read: pitiful) quality assurance.

 

The fact that in-use body armor was lost for so freaking long is evidence of that.
