Why on earth is it so hard to get people in the Prison Break Lobby?

Recommended Posts

VivianGaming

I hate this setup and heist to my very core.


I just don't get why people wont join the damn lobby for any of it. Takes forever even with Matchmaking set to open.

 

I want to get to the Pacific Standard Level and at this rate this sh*t is getting on my nerves.

 

 

Anyone want to be friends on PSN and help me smash through these heists, or have a better way to make some real money?

Because nearly everyone is glitching the Pacific Standard.

 

Probably best if you look for players on the Find Players and Lobbies thread.

It's the worst heist of them all. Payout is low and difficulty is high.

 

Setups aren't too bad but there's always someone who wants to be pilot and crashes or takes off too soon. There's always someone who thinks they know best and shoots at the guys chasing you in the Casco or goes in the police station with their pistol out. But worst of all is the finale... Who in their right mind wants to fly a plane for 20 minutes waiting for the prison to clear only to find the guy with the bus is still sat at sandy shores?

 

Even with my crew it's a pain. I'm usually the pilot since I can tail the lazer efficiently and land the plane right outside the prison for a quicker getaway and despite being behind the lazers the whole time and the buzzard helping out in the prison it still fails often.

 

It's also really only a 2 man heist. All of the setups can be done with 2 people while the other 2 just sit and wait.

It is the hardest heist of them all, my dude.

 

It's not hard because the mission itsrlf is hard, it's hard because of player intervention.

 

IE randoms are the worst especially at this heist. I would gladly do Deliver EMP with randoms rather than this slice of hell.

Yeah, this heist is the easiest to f*ck up, and the hardest to do with randoms/noobs. You're better off finding a decent team on here or with friends.

I understand the perspective if a new person had to do it for the first time and couldn't get anyone else to fill spots because of the above mentioned issues but doing Prison Break after the first time, I wouldn't know why anyone would want to subject themselves to the torture of finding pugs just to get a sh*tty payout. Unless it was for the Criminal Mastermind achievement.

I hate how with the finale that you have to start again from if someone stuffs up. Splatter yourself on the rocks/chopped by the rotor blades/drowned in the ocean, after you've jumped with Rashkovsky? Start the whole tedious process again please. Yeah screw that. Reluctantly doing it one last time just to progress so i can get to the PS heist but will never give this a look in ever again after that.

Serious question, do I EVER have to do that heist again, or do I get to choose which heists I start after all are finished?

You get to choose which one you want to do after you finish all of them the first time.

Because doing a prison break finale with randumbs is so insane even the randumbs figured out they should stay away from them.

That and bad matchmaking

Payout of the setups is sh*t, payout of the heist is sh*t and the finale has an annoying glitch makes the cops always know where you are, even there's none to be seem anywhere, meaning you cant complete it.

 

The whole heist was poorly planed and executed, I stay away from it because of all of that.

1. People are too busy glitching pacific standard

2. No saved outfits means it easy to f*ck it up

3. Payout is decent but still low

4. I can help you if you are on the ps4. Message me

Nightmare with randoms. I would not recommend doing it with randoms.

 

15% cut is only 75k which is very bad.

Because it is one of the worst heist do do with randoms. Sorry, but there are so many possibilities to fail and fail. It is the only setup where the people are devided in three groups. Without voice chat and/or people knowing what they are actual doing, it is a f*cking nightmare - with not much reward for it.

Also, the vehicle unlock rewards for that Heist are garbage.

Most randoms will just hop & skip until they find the setups or finales with the unlocks that they are looking for.

 

Fleeca Finale: Kuruma

Labs Finale: Insurgent, Insurgent Pickup, Hydra, Valkyrie, Masks & Gear

Series A Finale: Karin Technical

Bank Convoy Setup: Savage

 

Entire Prison Job: Crap.

Try spending 12h+ battling with the can't-lose-police-bug on launch day when all you want to do is unlock vehicles and play through all 5 heists, see how you feel about this piece of sh*t then..

That must have been the pinnacle reward for people when they finally completed it after dealing with the issues like what Gridl0k went through. lol

Ways to f*cking die:

 

Pilot: cant do a f*cking loop-de-loop behind the jet, or crashes

 

Prisoner and prison officer: cant f*cking shoot

 

Demolitionist: f*cking dies to the 3 guards at the buzzard.

 

Other: f*cking crashes their parachute at the end and dies

I couldn't agree more!

 

Had no problem completing the setups but as for completing the actual heist itself, sh*t the bed,,, Pilot always destroys the Velum or Demolitions can't use the Helicopter rockets properly.

 

I'm assuming there's people on here competent enough to complete but half the tits you get joining want to, as said above, do it their 'special' way rather than just getting it done...

 

So if anyone wants to help, feel free! :) XB1

Three guards? It's only ever been one when I've done it...

Considering the thing can be done by a good team in 20 minutes i say the payout itself is, just like with any heist, great.

 

But yes...randoms are gonna be able to pass the 5th finale faster then this 2nd one

Seems to me like its just one you need to get out of the way in that case.

 

I completed the heist as Demolitions with someone else as host and that involved ALOT of faffing around, took an age for the Guard & Prisoner to clear up at Bolingbroke so I've always set up as Host with me as either the Guard or Prisoner with 40 - 20 - 20 - 20.

 

What goes around comes around.

This heist I would deem the hardest of them all...granted I think it is the most fun, but I will not attempt it without a competent crew.

You forgot: Attempts to enter plane, but thanks to R* poor coding your character walks into the propeller instead.
