APC>Weaponized Tampa>Half Track>Turreted Limo for destroying the 4 pairs of Sultan NPCs. Seriously the Tampa's guns are vicious, but the APC has that extra protection. Use the Tampa's C pillars to protect a bit from npc gunfire if using that though.

APC is good for sultans chasing you, but not that good if you are trying to take down the enemies before you even sourced the car (a Warlord mission or some Little Seoul guys).

 

Anything except Tampa can potentially scratch the car. Tampa miniguns are like scalpels in right hands.

Post-Smuggler's Run, Race Bet mission, El Gordo variation.

-personnal aircraft spawn point.

MacKenzie airfield isn't far, but now its even easier.

So far I've stolen around 900 cars & I've never had this location in a 'pink slip bet' mission. I also never had the LSIA location in a 'laps around a closed circuit' mission. It doesn't make sense that I've done so many steal missions & yet I've never experienced certain variations of the missions.

I've never had the LSIA circuit either, but seeing as I have the LSIA warehouse, that makes sense. The game isn't going to give me a sourcing mission that close to my warehouse! Not sure why you wouldn't have had that race yet (it starts at the casino/race track, in case you might have had it before and simply forgot).

 

The other day I had a location for the photo search mission that I had never had before, so it is possible there's just been some "bad" luck involved, and there are some in the pool for people they just haven't ever had, even after all this time.

I think that if your warehouse is close to a steal location, it can still generate for you, it's just far less likely.

And how do you get the APC or Tampa or Half Track?

The Limo I can request through the CEO menu.

Yeah, that's not a new location. I've had that one so many times since the very beginning of I/E....

Weird. I've done over 1600 source missions (along with another 500 I didn't bother with and switched sessions) and just got that one yesterday

I don't have GR Vehicle as well (on PC). I usually call everything via Mechanic.

Will doublecheck in-game.

You may be right; but I can't check as i only own the AA; I thought you could switch between AA/Tampa/APC in the Interaction menu if you own several GR vehicles. Its strange that only AA is available. And why you don't use the AA with 20mm canon upgrade? lol

Its a one-shot kill versus blue car NPCs, NPC Supervolitos, NPC Buzzards..;etc

Personal Aircraft too with that job glitch. But hard to spawn Savage in narrow streets.

 

edit: not during missions ofc.

^^^ Good job!

 

I've decided to no longer source and sell at the same time. Going to put all money into 2nd characters cash on hand, then swap back to my main to fill my top range and get the mechanic to comp my repairs.

Then sell. Should save between 60 and 100k. On the other end, I've gotten pretty good at picking lobbies to sell in and only incur damages from street signs.

Getting a CB on the airfields was a nightmare, everytime Pegasus called back n apologised cause it couldnt deliver. Nowadays I just go to the race, get in the Elegy n then right away back in my CB to cancel/fail it. Id rather wait 2mins extra for a new mission xD

I did that once. Sold all 12 top range cars in a few days & after that focused on stealing 12 top range while my 2nd character had all my money. Not earning money between steal missions was psychologically difficult for me. lol. It's like I MUST get a reward for my effort & if that doesn't happen I become bitter & don't wanna play.

I'm like that too. I just have to remind myself that not paying damages is a reward unto itself.

I've been getting those damn "vehicle in motion" and circuit race source missions a lot. After I get done hosing the steal vehicle with bullets (I am horrible at shooting the driver out of a car) there's usually at least 13k worth of damage.

I know it's only pennies, but that sh*t adds up. Now I just have to figure out what to do when I'm selling. I usually sell a car, then do VIP, then source and repeat. I end up with a lot of time wasted staring at the countdown timer.

I might start robbing stores when I have a few extra minutes while everything else is on cooldown.

When you get the "car is on the move" mission you basically get a free 80,000 dollars. Don't try to shoot the driver. Drive (or fly) to the target car, park your car (or aircraft) in front of a car which is ahead of the target car in order to force the 2 cars to stop & then go to the target car & steal it. Your character will throw out the NPC driver.

 

When you get the "laps around a closed circuit" mission it's possible to

but if you don't have a Cargobob or you don't feel comfortable using it on a moving target then you'll need to shoot the driver. If the mission is happening near the casino you can use the Mobile Operations Center to block the escape route of the target car in advance in order to prevent a potential chase but the driver of the target car will collide with the MOC or a wall because he's programmed to keep trying to escape.

 

Regarding the time wasted on staring at the countdown - after I sell a car I do a VIP mission, I buy a crate & I steal a car. If you'll add buying a crate to your routine you won't have that problem. It's something to consider.

no, never did any dupe glitch during the last 2 years.

 

to get into detail, the 32nd car is the one you sell and steal back, right?

What he meant fryday is that if if you have two of the same cars then technically you dont have 32 unique vehicles. If all 32 cars in your garage are different and there are no duplicates then this method will work if you have two cars that are the same sell one of them so that this method would work

Now I see, so I forgot the detail that all these 32 must be different car models.

 

Thanks! I will check and try out tomorrow.

"Sort by name" to find dupes easily. You can lose them fast by just exporting via cheapest option and destroying them - 3 min cooldown.
