Drug wars VS Gang wars?

Recommended Posts

svanderman

I'd say gang wars. Drug wars may sometimes be more fun, but that's mostly because of the tBoGT-exclusive weapons, not the actual gameplay.

At first I'd say drug wars, but I started appreciating gang wars (and TLAD in general) more after I started watching Sons of Anarchy. Good show.

Drug Wars, so much variety in those missions, with stronger AI friends, as well.

Variety, yes, but usually I get the same damn type of Drug War like 8 times in a row before it changes to a different scenario. And like the guy above has said, that is the main reason I like the Drug Wars; for the new weapons. But as I said on the previous page, I still prefer the Gang Wars. They just seem way more intense and the sh*t really hits the fan with them.

I agree.

I also think that even though gang wars may not fit Johnny, they do fit the biker theme.

Tbogt has got more of a nightclub theme, than a drug theme.

You got the Molly? :p There is a LOT of drugs that go through Night Clubs. Ecstasy is a huge party drug. Can't say I ever tried it, though. Only loving those green leaves like Lil Jacob.

Although I honestly believe that the TLAD was a better game than TBOGT, I enjoyed the drug wars far better than the gang wars. It was better making money of it. I did enjoy killing the AOD members and creating more territory for the Lost MC but the drug wars was much better and it was more crime-like

I like them both, but Gang Wars are cool because I like roleplay.

I'll drive up to Burger Shot, wait for a bit, formulate a plan and then act it out.

Fully sick bruh.

I just finished both and I did not enjoy either of them at all. They were boring and tedious to me. I just didnt see the point in doing 25 of basically the same mission over and over again. They were much better in SA with the territory system. In tbogt half the time these 2 clowns are just getting in my way and im thinking im shooting an enemy, meanwhile the enemy is shooting me in the back. There was also lots of times in tbogt where headshots just did not work. I mean actually standing in front of the dude unloading into his face and nothing.

That can't be right. For me, headshots are instant kills on everyone.

 

Regarding Gang Wars vs Drug Wars: Drug Wars have a really stupid mechanic, teleporting enemy vehicles! You got the stuff and you're driving/flying away, and if you don't have your camera looking behind you at all times, enemies will constantly teleport behind you. Really stupid.

That's been happening since the 3D era where cars start to spwan randomly when you move the camera. It's damn right annoying as hell like where the f*ck did you idiot's come from?! The whole road was just empty a second ago.

I did notice the spawning vehicles. I just assumed they were chasing me because I just stole their sh*t, Idk whats goin on with the headshots, I am literally 10 feet from an enemy with nothing in the way, holding my dot right on his face just blasting away and its like im not even shooting.

I've always favored gang wars over drug wars, but that may be due to the cast more than the actual combatives and such. It's just kick ass to play as an OMC tearing stuff up...and it brings me back to my San Andreas days in a way except it's alot better in TLaD.

No better side mission than the drug wars. Hope rockstar include this or something similar in V. Maybe weapon/arms wars with Trevor.

Never going to happen. They'll add a sewing minigame before that.

I preferred Drug Wars, as they were a lot of fun, and they just felt more serious. Like the OP already stated, I also hold the view that it made more sense than Gang Wars, and it was much more realistic than Gang Wars too. Drug Wars actually had meaningful conclusion to it, which was gain drugs and cash, whereas Gang Wars didn't - it was just about killing people because you don't like them. There is usually always a strategic reason behind gang warfare, and most of time, it revolves around the drug trade; modern gangs won't just shoot each other up purely for the fact that that they have low opinions of, or dislike for each other as seen in TLAD.

Also, in these modern times, outlaw biker gangs don't have gang wars on the streets of East Coast cities like NYC, it just don't really happen like it does in real life, despite what was shown in TLAD, so to me it just feels too exaggerated and a bit too unrealistic. If these Gang Wars between bikers took place in a Southern California setting like V, then that's perfect, but in an NYC setting ? Nah, just didn't sit well with me and kinda put me off. But looking at Drug Wars, there are drug-related gang shootings in NYC all the damn time in real life - and a lot that involves Hispanic gangs, especially Dominican ones like the kind Luis was affiliated with in the game.

Personally, I prefer the Gang Warfare, because you commit alongside 6 Lost MC brothers to fight higher numbers of enemies compared to Drug Wars. Also, there's more dialogue variety in Gang Warfare compared to the Drug Wars. Same with campaign types. Yes, Gang Warfare has three type of battles, while Drug Wars have four, but the former is less repetitive. In Drug Wars, you wouldn't be able to trigger another mission type till you play one for like four or five times constantly. Not to mention that Drug Wars aren't as polished as the Gang Warfare; enemy backup gets spawned behind you once you move the camera to another side.

 

As for which one makes more sense, personally, while I don't find it perfectly fitting story-wise, I find Gang Warfare making a little more sense nonetheless;

  1. Yes, Johnny isn't someone who would just catches up for other gangs to hunt them down for no reason other than showing who are the bosses, but when you realize that Gang Warfare is available after the war between The Lost MC and the Angels of Death MC triggers on again, with The Lost MC had already killed an Angel Lieutenant and bombed their arch-rivals' clubhouse, you'll find it a little understandable to Johnny to be aggressive towards the Angels of Death MC. As for fighting the other gangs, it seems more of a mixture of story-wise explanation and fun gameplay element to add some more variety to the minigame. I still have a feeling that R* didn't actually plan to include the other gangs in the minigame, because in addition to what I said, you hear Johnny only insulting the Angels of Death, regardless of the gang he and The Lost MC are fighting. Maybe they decided to add the other gangs later on, so they made a few lines to fit in just in the start of the gang war, and forgot to make some for the battle.
  2. Luis constantly says that he doesn't want to get sent back to prison, especially after the drug deal he helped Armando and Henrique with in the few first missions of the game's story, yet he finds himself committing in numberless amount of drug deals again? In addition, regardless of how many drug bags you steal, Armando just won't start any enterprise or whatsoever nonetheless, so it seems pointless. Whereas in Gang Warfare, it's not about making money or starting a business, but about keeping territory under control and sending a message to the rival gangs to stay away from The Lost MC, and in some cases to not mess with them.

If the Angels of Death MC (and maybe the Triads after This Sh*t Is Cursed) was the only gang included in the Gang Warfare, then it would've perfectly tied to the story.

I've never understood that either. It's like Vic all over again "I don't want anything to do with drugs, but I'll sell them anyway". It's also annoying how he's always giving Armando and Henrique sh*t, but he has no problem going along with them. Hypocrite much?

Drug wars. Gang wars are pointless to me cause I hate all the bikers and don't have any motivation to fight for my side. Both are easily beaten By SA Turf wars though but I did A LOT of drug wars(200+).

I feel like i prefer Drug Wars more compared to Gang Wars, the Gang Wars can be fun but eventually to me they just become harder as you progess, because enemies get like better weapons and worse are the frag grenades, died loads of times suddenly from them, it is annoying. I learned that you need to strategize eventually, wish i did learn that beforehand, but i haven't played TLaD in years.

 

Plus, the Drug Wars allow for more realisticer gun battles compared to gang wars, as your often having shootouts that result in the vehicles stopping and quite a lot of carnage.

I'll take Drug Wars over Gang Wars for one reason, Drug Wars are rife with vehicles in unique colors. I especially love the unique boats you can get, IV really needed a usable dock like V for those. 

 

I think my favorite is one of the Huntley variations, it's a nice drab blue on the bottom, with a white top, and a black stripe wrapped around it. Basically a redeco of the Jamaican Huntley. 

 

Edit: You can see it in this video. The Huntley segment is around 4:40, it's on the right.
