Myself & some friends tried your bike route at the weekend as we thought it was probably the best one yet. But the cops were driving off road in front of us and behind to the point where me and a buddy both got knocked off the bikes. Same happened on the second run so we quit and reverted to the Noose truck method.

 

I'm wondering if the cops have been buffed since the Gunrunning update as I've done quite a few different off road routes in the past and never encountered cops going crazy like that before lol. Have you tested it since the update? We're training for CMM so I'd rather not take too many risks but would like to do it on the bikes as I feel like I'm cheating taking the noose truck.

 

 

Haven't tried since the update but I would be surprised if the cops have been updated, make absolutely sure you don't put 2 on a bike even for a second as this can trigger a more aggressive response

 

Make sure you're:

 

sticking together, one man out in front will leave cops in his "wake"

 

Not shooting at cops as this means they shoot back

 

Getting off road as soon as possible

 

Even if you do see a cop, brake, the cop will swerve, drive round.........or at this point open up with a full auto shotgun or even a gl round

 

At the first opportunity I'll run the bike route

 

Thanks for the info

 

Edit 28/06/17 - Just tried, no extra increased aggression from cops, other than when provoked, so unless it's a platform issue, which I doubt, it's all good

Yep I think I know what caused it now. One of the crew got on the back of a bike on the first run (by accident) but got off again. But did it again on the second run and stayed on as a passenger so that's probably what caused it.

 

We'll give another try or 2 at the weekend. Thanks for the reply.

 

On PC btw.

Yeah it's a real pain when someone gets on by accident, I try to either get on one by one, or stand by a bike then get on all at once. Good luck with the cm, it's pretty easy with the right tricks.

 

In other news, I'm told certain gun running vehicles can be used on heists, while this won't really change things (because there is already an armoured vehicle) it may give an edge on cm runs

I feel I can give advice I have done CM a few times to help friends(back before gunrunning and before finale kuruma nerf) and have done all Elite challenges since kuruma nerf and gunrunning.

But regarding your comment about some of the new armored vehicles the Tampa and half track etc, you can use them and they really help and/or really fun (obviously they do not help for the finale),

But TBH for a CM run Kuruma is still king for 90% of it, because it is the only truly bullet resistant car (and the main objective of a CM run is to stay alive) the new vehicles just add variety, but they do not offer the same protection and on some setups but when you need to steal vehicles like "bikes" or "convoy" for example you have to be careful because the weapons are powerful and you can easily destroy the objective.

My main tip since gunrunning if you wanted to do a CM run would be stick to the kuruma when you can because that will still be the best at keeping you alive and buy explosive ammo for your heavy sniper and deal with heli's on missions where taking them out is a priority like convoy.

If you are not serious about a CM run then the new vehicles are fun and get the job done.

02/18 Update

 

Added link to the new doomsday guide http://gtaforums.com/topic/905186-the-ez-guide-to-the-doomsday-heists-and-criminal-mastermind/

It's not pinned (yet, hopefully) so any help keeping it visible is more than welcome

 

Now that the majority of the doomsday is up I will be running the classics, just to make sure everything still tallies

 

If you're on xb1 and want to help, let me know

Not sure if this has been covered already but if you wear the heavy armour (not the body armour but the one from the clothes shop) and the bulletproof helmet, you can take nearly half the damage you normally would. Makes you move slower, though, so it's not perfect. I don't know if it works on the Doomsday heists but it does work on the old heists. Remember to set the outfits to 'player owned' on the lobby screen.

It has, first post, under tips, and illuminated with this gif, http://i.imgur.com/9giERqc.gifv, also covers the scarf trick, allowing you to retain the damage resistance without the reduced movement speed

 

Most, if not all, is covered, especially the basics, give it a read

This is the Deliver EMP technique I've been using (it's a fully solo one, where only one player even needs to get out of the Insurgent).

 

It's similar to the one in the OP, but I think the shots required are easier (when there's a difference), so I find it very reliable. There's also no backtracking required, so it's a lot easier for a new player to follow. It's another option for people who might be having difficulty with Deliver EMP:

Quite a strange one.

Myself and two others helping a fella do CMM - I've done it 4 times and one other 3 times.  But tonight all going well up until PB Finale.  The demo guy had the bus blow up on him before he could blow it up, causing it to fail; claims it just combusted.  He was having dodgy connection issues around that time.  He maintains he did not die and I believe him. However I've never known of a simple failure resetting the CMM to 0.

He could have got stuck on something or crashed it so many times it just killed the engine. This has happened to me I think in act 2 with the stromberg. Got stuck on a rock and within 10 seconds of me hitting the gas and going nowhere the car just died. Not sure why this would result in a reset though. Unless the bus caught fire then exploded. Id close app on any failure just incase next time.
