Car theft missions

Recommended Posts

Zello

It's been years since we've had a proper side mission about stealing cars in single player you know what Grand Theft Auto is all about. We had them all throughout the 3D era games and the last time we saw them featured in single player was in IV and TLAD where Niko would steal cars for Brucie and Stevie or Johnny stealing bikes for Angus (Not including Online in GTA V) There is just something about taking a car to some garage to go to end up in who knows where is always fun. You had a list of cars you had you steal and you got paid for it.

 

I'd like to see them return but improved a bit instead of only doing a list for one place there would be several places that would need your services like used car dealerships, scrap yards, or some shady people at the docks. Because after you have completed these lists you're out of work and can't do anymore this way it would offer the opportunity for it to be unlimited.

 

What do you think?

I'd like to see them come back similar to how Stevie's were in GTA IV where you're given a brief description with an accompying photo of said vehicle and have to find it without any other clues.

 

I wasn't really a big fan of the lists because it felt a bit stupid just randomly jacking vehicles off the street that matched by name.

 

GTA IV's way with Stevie's put a more Gone In 60 seconds kind of twist on them. Just felt more organised like something you'd expect from a proper car theft ring or something.

 

Of course they could be harder to find, but if anything's used as a template it should be that IMO.

Yes, one of the things I liked about the story in V was the car theft missions for Devin, I would like more of those in the main story, but a few side missions would also be cool.

It should be like Vice City where you own a dealership and unlock exclusive vehicles by delivering cars but there should be many more vehicles and when you are done you can still deliver cars for extra money.

Brucie's (or Stevie's) car thefts in IV were brilliant fun to play, even more so, once you utilised the other features properly. I loved the way when you went to do the mini-missions to steal the vehicles, they had a nice variety of fun scenarios attached to them, like the owner fighting Niko before giving it up, or the owner being surrounded by armed gang members that shot at you once you stole it, or the vehicle being part of a police sting operation. What made it even more fun is getting Dwayne's bodyguards to assist you and shoot at enemies that tried to hinder your progress ! Stuff like this needs to come back to GTA.

I'd like for a hybrid of Brucie's, and Stevie's Car Theft Missions to return.

I would LOVE to see something like Wang Cars from 2 come back, where you steal cars in random places and the reward is multiple tanks, fire trucks with flamethrowers attached instead of water cannons, and stuff like that.

An environment like San Andreas in V really could have used the Import/Export vehicles or garages where you sell stolen vehicles. One of the few areas of V where I was like, "What was Rockstar thinking?"

Leaving the vehicle-buying websites to just Online would have been a plus.

Working for a used car dealership would be interesting. There's always a demand for cars and inventory.

This is sort of what I want the main focus of the game to be. We own a Chop Shop that  we can grow and expand upon as the game progresses. We could have the old school lists where we just need certain makes and models but also special clients who want specific vehicles or even clients who want a specific car's body with a different car's engine, suspension, transmission, etc. Even really high-end vehicles with heist-like missions.

 

It still blows my mind that GTA has never really put a major focus on stealing cars in their games. I think there's a lot of potential there for a pretty good variety of missions and there's no reason why our car thief character can't get involved in other forms of crime.

 

The import/export stuff was always my favorite thing to do in GTA Online and I think if they just fleshed that stuff out a lot more and added a compelling story/characters it'd make for a pretty solid game.

Yeah agreed. I think this would be a good way for them to feature rare vehicles that cant be purchased and don't spawn. Maybe they could flesh the missions out a bit as well, perhaps giving them some sort of narrative as aopposed to just finding the car sitting on the street and delivering it back to a garage.

 

I also think we should be rewarded with special variants of vehicles or certain vehicle upgrades we can only attain through doing these missions.

I agree, otherwise the game should no longer be called 'Grand Theft Auto'. But Online seems to have plenty of car theft missions. Stevie's and Brucie's missions were pretty fun, it'd be nice to see something similar in the next GTA.
