Daily Objectives: tips and tricks

Recommended Posts

craigdyid

If anyone's struggling with the parachute dangerously one (I was no matter what I did!) then do this:

 

Credit to @fryday for this as I googled it and an old thread came up with this tactic.

 

Climb to the top of the Vinewood 'D' up a ladder . There's a parachute on top. Simply jump of it towards the front of the sign and open your parachute immediately after jumping, first time pass easy.

This was in the first post, but lacked clarification to "pull your chute immediately after jumping"--so it's been corrected; thanks!

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.

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.

 

 

 

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.

 

i just had the same problem with the 4 star wanted level and also tried several ways.

the solution for me was also to quit the game (and turn of the ps3) and then start the game again to have the cache cleared.

then it worked right away.

 

i've got another little tipp for the "revealed player kill" for those who are not very good at deathmatches.

just try for it in a capture or a vs-mission instead of a deathmatch.

this way the opponents are concentrated on (and distracted by) the mission objectives and not only trying to kill you.

that makes it easier for you kill anyone than in a deathmatch.

Just spotted this new (to me!) D.O. in the GTA Wiki list:

 

Get a Gold Medal in a Flight School Lesson.

 

Yikes! Anybody have any idea of how to easily complete this if/when it comes up?

 

The last successful Flight School Lesson I've unlocked is the "Land a helicopter on a moving truck"; but I rarely ever get any medal other than bronze. :( Here's hoping I don't get this anytime soon..!

The first lesson is super piss easy if you get the loops done first time!

and the landing ones (without engine at fz and the one with the titan on the beach) are doable when landing right in the finish line.

Just in case anyone does not know but I can clarify the bug with Escape A 2 Star/3 Star/4 Star wanted level is still present.

 

I have had it not complete the objective until the 3rd reset of the game.

 

Also Kill a Revealed Player is proving to glitch as well as done this one twice in DM's recently and both times it awarded after killing the

2nd player not the first one and yes I was still within the minute reveal time.

I had "Kill a revealed player" several times during my 28 days, and I always used Captures for it. Worked first time every time, so might be worth trying?

^^ Interesting--I always use Deathmatches for that, but Captures should work equally well. [Aside: Cypress Flats LTS came in handy last night when I realized that (for some reason) both my characters were missing some melee weapons; different modes offer various benefits.]

 

I'm convinced some stuff is platform-specific though, such as being able to complete objectives for both characters within 24 real-time hours.

For Impromptu Races, I find that if you go into passive mode, people are more willing to accept invites.

ok, now here is the detailed instruction for keeping 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 obj.) with char B to get his 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 list.

 

the progress for char B should be reset but the progress for char A should be saved.

 

this worked for ps3, not sure about the other platforms.

i have just done this again so i can definetely confirm that this method works like this (at least for ps3).

i had a progress of 24/28 for my main char before i went for a trip at the last weekend (2 days of absence from the game).

 

the last day before the trip and the first day after i came back i logged in only with my second character and completed the daily objectives with him and didn't touch my main character.

after that (on the second day after my return) i logged in with my main character and still had my progress saved (still 24/28) and got the 500k bonus a couple of days later!

^^ Definitely platform-specific then. Does not work on the PC (at least my system; I've heard nothing from other PC users on this).

How am I meant to get a 1 on 1 deathmatch if every time I request one it is declined immediately - literally before the other play can have time to decline it. Wtf is that about?

^^ That's why user gripped started the IMPR PC "Daily Objectives" crew--1v1 is incredibly frustrating, unless you have enough friends online at any time you log in to GTAO (even then it's a royal pain in the you-know-what, because you get players interrupting your 'match').

 

I'm not aware of similar crews on any of the console platforms, but it would be great if there were...

1) Send all the randoms in your lobby "Want free jet? send me 1v1 DM"

2) Kill as many of them as possible with a jet.

3) Eventually someone will accept, and bonus, they even get a free jet.

I know I'm preaching to the choir here, but the whole concept of a One-on-One deathmatch is worthless for several reasons:

 

1) One in maybe 50 or 60 people that you have to take time to grief might actually accept a One-on-One; the rest don't give a foot, because they're already doing it anyway.

 

2) It provides zero insulation between the two players duking it out and the rest of the players, so there are frequent interruptions, making the whole concept even more useless and annoying. And no; no-one is going to take the time to drive or fly to Paleto Bay just so they can have a 1v1 "in peace" from other players (as if that would stop script kiddies blowing them up along with the rest of the session anyway).

 

3) GTA Online in public sessions is, and always will be, an ongoing deathmatch between players; whether voluntary or involuntary.

4) It offers nothing more than an official way of "keeping score" up to five kills...as if that's supposed to magically mean something.

Are you listening Shy*? No-one wants your epic fail of a GTAO "feature". Ditch it and fire the dev(s) responsible for it.

 

I don't know about anyone else, but similar things could be said about Captures and Impromptu Races. Once I rank my second character up to level 120, Daily Objectives will no longer have any use for me. I'll be happy to still help others out with theirs, but overall, they're just not worth the time and hassle unless you need the extra RP and GTA$. I'd rather just try and have fun doing things I and my friends want to do.

For the Capture events I created a job of my own for each type with a description saying they are for daily objectives and meant to be quick and easy.

 

So far I've found it a little easier this way getting people to join my match as someone who is also chasing the daily objective can see exactly what it is straight away.

 

I just have them saved for me so far but happy to publish them if people wanted to try and use them as well? Means even those who aren't doing that particular objective can see what it is and help each other out maybe?

 

As an aside, I think the main problem with Capture is that the Rockstar created jobs are all really dull and it put off a lot of people from using the game mode, some of the user created ones are great and they can be excellent for making crew events.

They do. Last gen jobs can still be used on next gen. But next gen jobs can't be used on last gen since there's different props that can be used in the creator.

So your captures will work on his ps4 ;)

I've published the jobs now, hopefully they are of use and make it a little easier if a few people are doing it, recognise the job and help each other out.

 

Mafia said the one I invited him to was the worst job ever (or words to that effect) but they are simply designed to do the Capture quickly, one delivery and one round wins. It takes longer to load the job than to run it.

Kill a player while Off the Radar - Costs $500; this can be done alongside the one below: 'Collect a bounty." Should work in deathmatch, but not confirmed. The easiest way is to fly around in a Buzzard/Savage/Hydra, go off the radar, and just kill anybody in a car. It's very easy now that aircraft missiles lock on to player cars.

Can confirm this does not work in Deathmatch. Option is greyed out and says it is not available during this job when you try to select it.

...but that's precisely why I'm in a crew dedicated JUST for handling situations like that. :) gripped kindly helped me out with an Impromptu Race last night, in fact. (thanks again bro!)

 

Wouldn't you rather have had this one? :)
