Daily Objectives: tips and tricks

Recommended Posts

Steelad77

20 days into my daily objectives for the $500,000 and I've got impromptu race for the first time! Public lobbies are no help so if anyone could help me I'd be forever grateful!

 

I'm on xbox 360 and my GT is the same as my username

unfortunately i'm on ps3.

if you don't have a friend online just ask some randoms in the lobby via ingame message.

for an extra incentive you could offer to let them win.

It seems Rockstar put a helpful correction into the objective Play A Match of Tennis.

 

I have had this for the last two days and I joined a random, we played the first game and I won the set, the

opponent then served his first of the second game and quit the match and I got Objective Complete - Play A Match

of Tennis.

 

Did the same yesterday invited a friend to play tennis and we played 1 game and I won the game, got him to serve

on 2nd game and quit and again Objective Complete - Play A Match of tennis.

 

I think some of you got this to work before the update but its nice to know that we don't have to sit through the six

games now as it takes too long.

when the other person leaves early (while you are leading in score) it always (also in other jobs like captures i.e.) counts as a victory for you.

it just doesn't count when you are the one who leaves early.

i think it was like that before as well (might be wrong though).

When I looked at my daily objectives today, they didn't reset! And no, I didn't log in with my second character. Is this a bug?

Yes that does occur, unfortunately you may have to wait for tomorrow to obtain new objectives.

No you shouldn't do but if you want to be absolutly safe I would suggest logging on as your second character for the next day

and then swap back to the main character the next day.

 

That way the progress will definetly not be lost.

so not sure if mentioned before?

 

for dangerous & 30meter parachuting you can also jump off the left building from the "mixed up with coke" construction site, go to north end of roof, jump facing the deepest end of "the pit", immediately pull chute

 

*the construction site is on the road leading to the marina & chopper pad, other side of elevated highway behind the Alta street apts

for the "off the radar kill" i recommend to fly around in a buzzard/savage/hydra and going off the radar and just kill anybody in a car.

it's very easy that way since the missiles of the choppers lock on to cars now.

 

it's also a good method for the objectives "kill 5 players" and "kill 10 players".

sometimes you get shot down though.

@ size_m and PSplayer: Thanks for the tips--added!

 

My apologies for the delay, but just got back from a long vacation.

 

@ nick6raphael: Would be happy to help, but am on the PC now (sold my PS3 a while ago). I hope someone helped you out?

Has anyone else noticed a theme forming with Daily Duties since the update dropped on Wednesday?

 

I was not sure yesterday but now I am convinced something has been changed in the random selection process.

 

The past two days I have done my trick of logging on to get daily's for both characters.

 

Yesterday Slot 1 had a Deathmatch, Kill a Player Off Rader, Fly Under Bridge in an Air Race

Slot 2 character had One on One DM, Call A Mugger, Fly Under Bridge in Air Race.

 

Today Slot 1 has Rally Race, Play a game of Tennis and Stunt Jump

Slot 2 has Sea Race, Play a game of Tennis and Stunt Jump.

 

See the patern? Similar random events. Anyone else noticed this if doing with multiple characters or

have I just been unlucky today?

Not here; my second character's daily objectives are consistently locked, no matter what I do (i.e. only if I treat my second character as my primary character would they be refreshed--which requires a 24-hour period in realtime; not GTA time).

 

The other thing I've noticed is that, though I've been doing daily objectives for months now, one objective has never cropped up ("Have a private dance at the Vanilla Unicorn"--not a bad thing to go without), but as another example, "Complete a Contact Mission" is extremely rare.

 

IMO what R* needs to do is cycle through the objectives randomly--but without repeating--until they've all been done once. Then cycle through them again. That way you're not getting spammed with the highly annoying Impromptu Race, One-on-One Deathmatch (that people hate with a passion) as well as the lame, yawn-inducing Capture - Raid/Hold, etc. nonsense or Tennis matches.

I do get spammed with rally, impromptu race and many more P.I.A objectives repetitively within 2 weeks (in fact same objective multiple times in same week too)...

 

As for contact mission, I had seen them at least twice in these 2 weeks too.

Has anyone figured this one out for sure yet? The concept seems simple, but asking the question is annoyingly complicated.

 

If you have two characters, and alternate the objectives between them each day, does it take twice as long to get the 7 and 28 day bonuses? In other words is it do them for 28 days straight with the same character or with either (since it's the same player, and GTA$ for them is shared but not RP)?

 

(I try to keep my characters at approximately the same level, but since I have only been able to do objectives with one of them, that character is no consistantly 10-12 levels above the other. Since I just completed the 28, I'm thinking about switching to the other character for them, but once I equalize the levels, I'm wondering if I can alternate between the two of them, and still get the bonuses on time as long as I do them with one of the characters.)

For the "Mod a vehicle" objective, you can add free chrome rims to save $200 to complete the objective :)

yes, if you alternate your chars it takes twice as long (28 days for each).

unless you log in with both chars right after the refresh time within the first hour (depends on your timezone).

this way you can complete them for both chars each day.

that's what i've been doing for the second month now.

 

@denturedynamite

are you sure about the refresh time in your time zone?

if you log in with both chars (swapping) within the first hour after the lists refresh they should be refreshed for both chars.

you gotta wait some seconds after spawning with the second char to refresh his list as well (the list is still stuck right after spawning).

"Yes" to both the time zone refresh and the long wait after spawning with the second character. It just refuses to refresh.

 

Has anyone on the PC actually been able to get this to work? If not, then I suspect it's a platform-specific bug...

 

@ShiviSRT-10: Added your note about the free chrome wheels for the "Mod a vehicle at a Car Mod Shop" objective. Also added a note about the free license plate option in LSC that's been showing up recently.

So I see the answer to my question was R* changing the daily duties to produce specific duties linked to the event weekend.

 

Hope things return to normal tomorrow, I know they are a pain but its much easier to gather people for Captures than it is Tennis or Rally Racing!

It's interesting that R* admitted to "tweaking" the objectives to suit their goal. Now we have official confirmation that they can adjust them at any time to suit their "tastes" (i.e. they may or may not always be completely random).

 

I suspect I'm just lucky, but I haven't had any problems lately in finding people for tennis or rally racing (using the phone's "activity" feature). I'm just not looking forward to the return of impromptu races and one-on-one deathmatches. Ugh.

Had one on one deathmatch today. Spent three hours killing people in FR today, no accepts. Had to get a friend to help :L

Unfortunately, sounds about right. :( The best defense against those lame objectives is a huge horde of friends almost guaranteeing that someone will be able to help whenever you're online...

Guys today I need to peform a stunt jump. Just one question - does it have to be a stunt jump I've never done before?

 

I wouldn't think so because wouldn't that make it impossible for people who've done all of them to complete?

It used to be the case that it had to be a jump you have not completed before however it is now fixed and any stunt jump will achieve the objective.

for stunt jump just do the race downtown underground.

there is a stunt jump from the bridge which counts for the daily objective.

sometimes it doesn't count at the first try, then you gotta turn around and do that jump again until you get that notification (during the race) that you completed that daily objective.
