Before you decide to purchase a Cargobob for warehouse missions

Recommended Posts

One of Simeon's missions involves stealing two cars and delivering them to a dock, then stealing and delivering two more, all in a 10 minute time limit.

The 'Bob is a godsend for that mission.

It also helped me deliver (and troll with) a lot of Simeon's HPVs back in the old-gen days.

I'm glad they let us keep our $185,000 editions :lol:

 

It was a glitch that let players buy them, but Rockstar was well aware of it and took nearly a year to patch it.

They even acknowledged that a lot of players owned an unownable helicopter at the 1-year anniversary mark (#5 in "Top-5 owned helicopters"). :beerhat:

I didn't even think about how good a 'Bob would be for that. Perfect for it really.

That's the one.

 

The car you have to steal while a cop is standing near it is priceless. He starts shooting at you and you're all, "It's an armored helicopter, b*tch!" Measly 1-star wanted level usually fades before you deliver it.

The one that's parked near the strip club usually needs to be pulled out because it's too narrow for the Cargobob to get to.

You just have to be gentle on delivery to the docks as the cars like to swing like a pinata and there are cranes all around (plus you need to put the cars right on the marker, so it's sometimes faster to set them down nearby and drive them to the markers).

It is.

But I never used it before as you need multiple players and I knew a dumbass would accuse me of being a modder..... on the X1

GTA today works well, go get the Super Diamond then pick up your 'bob at the Marina, drop off the roller then back for the Stinger. Your other randoms should cope with the other 2 closer cars.

I really don't care that I can't use the cargobob on the crate picks ups. I've be so jealous of old gen players who got a hold of the cargobob in the early days. If you think the cargobob is a waste of money, clearly your not using your imagination! The places my friends cars have magically ended up is priceless, Also putting your organsiations T20's on the yacht then starting Piracy Prevention is a nice way to troll jets :-)

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

 

They do only if they're in it, otherwise from my experience nobody pays. When doing my stunt jumps sometimes if I knew it was going badly I'd just jump out at the last second and only paid about half the time for my drowned T20s. The mechanic that makes you pay for insurance isn't very consistent from my experience.

 

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

 

 

 

 

The point is folks who like playing around in cargobob should be able to pick these vehicles up (provided the bob can pick up non-crate versions).

 

I was so stoked when it came out since I also wanted one just to play around with and it appeared (from the trailer) that it was going to be useful in new content. I bought both (assuming there was some performance difference) and out of all the new content they're low on my buyer's remorse list, but still... when you find out that the ONLY new content in which you can use it spawns one for you then forces you to ONLY use the one they spawn it's a bit of a let down.

 

It seems so intuitive that it would be the go-to aircraft to do a lot of the crate scenarios with. R*'s greed and laziness in wanting to ensure nobody can do the crate pickups quickly has ruined something else that could have been really great.

Buying helicopters isn't even an option at this point. It's an absolute need i have.

Rockstar will sell you the cargobob,but they won't let you enjoy it.(referring to the CEO missions)Just like everything else in gtao.😂

 

I wonder how good the Bob would be in a "coasting" playlist?

Cargobob is useful in Show Me the Monet

and Handle with Care.

 

Snipe the drivers in Show Me the Monet, CB the van.

 

Delivering the boats in Handle with Care.

 

Was nice to use in A Boat in the Bay too. Rockstar removed that mission :(

 

It also worked in the past for Stick Up the Stickup Crew, delivering the truck. I haven't tried it after this last update. I was able to pick up a semi truck with my CB the other day, so it may work to deliver that truck as well.

Don't forget boats have no fall damage into water so pick up your team mates, fly to the Alamo and drop them from miles up ;)

 

Another Protip (not tested in 1.35 yet) - drop a PV into water and you're paying insurance. Drop it onto a gas tank however... :D

If you haven't used the Cargobob on chopper tail, you're doing it wrong.

 

Meth'd up is also the easiest mission in the game with it.

 

 

I still can't believe they purposely disabled it for CEO missions tho. It's not like the Buzzard being instantly delivered doesn't make nearly everything in free roam 1000 times faster how much more would a cargobob help.... mind numbing choice.

Wtf guys the cargobob isnt "useful" in any mission since every mission requires taking more than 4 minutes. A BMX is more useful.

Why don't we report that "Cargobob is unable to pick up vehicles during CEO missions.". In my opinion, this is a real bad bug.

Don't you even come to me and say it is supposed to be this way.

If I used your logic, I'd still be grinding my way to level 1000. LOL

Why is everyone so stuck on getting the contact missions done faster when you actually get paid LESS for a short time completion?

 

Does anyone else think that should be the other way around?

One thing you really should purchase for warehouse missions is the armour upgrade for the Cuban 800. If this doesn't convince you, I don't know what would:

Yeah a friend didn't upgrade his cubans and we failed the delivery of his small warehouse... Damn buzzards shot me down, although I was trying to fly as low as possible and evade them...

 

 

Wrt Cargobob... i'm glad I was able to buy one at last, but indeed, one should be able to use it during CEO-missions... I tried doing it with one of the crate missions in which u get ambushed by the FIB... Didn't work... Bummer... SEcondly I hate the fact I couldn't get that cool RED Jetsam Cargobob..Instead we got a hideous colorscheme...

 

Overall I'm glad I have bought one, and I will try to use it in certain contactmissions... I also tried to see if it can float... But it floats as efficient as a brick... And these helis irl are capable of landing on sea (and staying afloat)...

I get Rockstar wants to sell shark cards, but they screw players at every turn. You buy security for your business and you still get raided, cargobob can't pick up resupply vehicles. They encourage players to ruin sell missions for rewards. Where's the loyalty to the fan base? I get that there's a risk reward factor but man it takes a lot of effort to make money online.
