Before you decide to purchase a Cargobob for warehouse missions

Recommended Posts

Xion Hunter

I bought it because it's on eof my favorite helicopters.

 

Two mill well spent for me :D

You can't use the Cargobob to pick up Special Cargo vehicles. I tried this and now there goes nearly 2 million dollars that I was hoping to use for more efficency in warehouse missions.

 

I held off buying one because I suspected something like this would come up. Thanks for the info, even if it came as your own expense - hope you make up for the financial hit you took. I find it amazing how the criminal element in LS seem to only transport precious cargo in crappy vehicles that move slower than a snail in reverse - and that my own Rumpo Custom or any other vehicle with cargo carrying capabilities can't handle what's being moved :D

 

I'd love to swoop down on some jerk-off stealing my cargo and lift his van clean off the street with a 'Bob. Then it's back to my warehouse for some 'disciplinary action' to remind him not to touch things that belong to other people. Might even put on some

while I have a 'chat' with them... note to self: pick up some more duct tape at the hardware store later on.

 

Oops, sorry. daydreaming again

Another thing: You cannot pick up the Assassination target vehicles in the "Headhunter" VIP missions. So much for grabbing those armored cars and sending them into the water

I laugh with heavy irony at the mess they've given us with this update. Don't get me wrong, there is a lot of very cool stuff in there (it took me a while to see that, but I do now), but this is just ridiculous, along with the pointless safe and the unstealable cargo. I'm now dreading the Cunning Stunts update, foreseeing $20,000 entry fees and then messages like "Stunt failed - your wheels left the ground".

This has got to be one of the first times we've ever agreed on anything.

 

Yeah it is a little stinky that it can't lift the crates, and it should be buffed back to tank-lifting, but other than that ... It's a helicopter I loved using, have wanted for a while - oh, and it's the only one that can take a missile.

 

I am probably one of the most biased people around here on this subject though.

 

 

The new 'bob can lift the tank, I haven't tried with the old one yet.

Insurgent is still to heavy though.

FYI yes, you need to activate the mission cargobobs but you don't need to use them.

 

D2S for instance;

 

Go to Zancudo cargobob

Get in

Get out

Take Buzzard

Fly to city

Spawn Peg cargobob

...

Profit

That's ridiculous. 1.75 million and you can't even use it for that contact mission.

I found out one use for the Cargobob yesterday. I was steaming along in a tug to deliver some cargo, when one appeared behind me. He managed to sink the tug with me inside just by bumping into it.

We tried the same thing. Doing a pickup mission at the airport and on our way out we passed a Cargobob. Tried picking it up and found out it didn't work.

I didn't ask to pay twice for two colours though... What's wrong wth cycling them, like the Besra and Vestra for instance? Oh, right, microtransactions.

 

And yeah of course they're introduced alongside a mode they would be awesome at, but aren't allowed. R* troll hard.

I gave up hope on the cargobob usefulness a long time ago.Owned one for years and its always been spotty to try and use it. Next patch you probably won't even be able to drop the hook on the f*ckin things.

This screams of a massive oversight. Wasn't this exactly what the Cargobob was shown doing in the trailer?

 

The trailer (0m 55s) shows the new Cargobob hauling a container--not a special vehicle.

 

But that said, you would assume that the old Cargobob could at least act as a backup chopper in hauling containers for CEO work if your new Cargobob's engine kicks the bucket...

 

...not the case; at least when I tried it a day or so ago.

 

Perhaps this will be addressed in a future patch.

Unbelievably worst thing about this update...

Cargobob to carry vehicles cannot pick up vehicles so cannot be used to carry vehicles.

Needs fixing, immediately or there's gonna be trumplike anarchy!

You know what I just realized

 

Docks to Stocks will now be broken because we can just call a Cargobob

or you know, thats what people who said we weren't getting a purchasable Cargobob would have liked you to believe.

Certain missions just got 100% more grind-able if that works.

 

Yes, and also no.

 

I've had the CB for a long, long time, and unless there is something special about the new one, those sorts of missions that require you to go get a thing to carry the thing won't count the peg CB as the thing you need to pick it up. You still have to go and at least snag the one from the base. Which means still losing the wanted level, which isn't even hard.

 

Edit: Wait, what happens if you buy the new bobs but had always owned the old bob? Do you get THREE bobs?

I'm tempted to buy one just for the sake of it, but I have a question:

 

Is there a difference between the Marine Cargobob & the Jetsam one? Aside from the price & the radar dom on the Marine one...

I just had to do the contact mission where you steal the truck from the docks. I thought I'd be ingenuis & use the Cargobob....only to find out it was too heavy for it!

Who forced you to pay twice for two colors? Buy the one you like the most.

 

When you go car shopping in real life, you don't buy one of every color car because you'd like variety, do you?

If you dump an empty (someone else's) pv in the water, who's paying insurance? Owner?

I wanted to lift a van and drop it on a roof or a fenced area, then execute the driver or let him free, then deliver to warehouse

Pull the drivers out of their vehicles. Same with the cops in their van. No need to shoot any of them. Easy peasy :)

Cool, the Cargobob can pick up containers.

 

Too bad no crate collection involve and containers of any kind. It's a pity we can't pick up the vehicles with crates in them. A best case scenario would be this is another Banshee 900R mistake.

Yeah it would be great if they let us pick up the vehicles but I was greatly disappointed when I saw it couldn't. Luckily for me however, I bought a Bob with a glitch back in the billionaire days so I got mine for free.

 

It's good fun anyways since you can grind some missions very easily and you can think of new ways to complete old missions, but for the price it has now, I would say don't get it unless you are a fan of the chopper itself.

 

Another awesome thing would be that big vehicles like the Bob could take up to three crates of cargo with only one driver, and like it has been said before, hopefully this is just an oversight like the Banshee scenario.

OP you a whiner and no it is not a waste of $2m. Ok so you can't pick up everything, which is likely intentional since R* knew we would. I agree, would of been nice though.

That been said is I have been waiting so long for a cargo bob, a lot of us have, I would have easily paid $10m for one .. so $2m is a steal. You can do missions with vans etc, steal RV's ... it's loads of fun and allows us to be more creative to do missions.

If they in it they pay, if you drop it, you pay, it's like destroying a vehicle, I think this is how it works.

So both versions have no differences whatsoever besides the color?

Also, that you can't use your own in missions is asinine. Not buying.
