Today, I somehow managed to kill a dude in God mode by unintentionally passive bailing him.

 

 

I was trying to passive bail the other guy, but this God mode scrub in the Police Cruiser gets in the way. The guy I was trying to passive bail blows up his car with a rocket launcher, but somehow, it surprisingly counted as my kill. He must have been so confused and pissed at the same time.

 

This was the same God mode scrub that had killed me in another session. Karma's a bitch!

What's the plow you have on that ZR380? I didn't knew that they could blow up vehicles like that.

They're some sort of rotating spikes. They do some serious damage upon contact. In the video, though, it was the guy on foot that blew up the God mode guy's car, if you watch closely. I don't know how I killed him, though.

 

If you hit an MK2 with the spikes, it can blow up upon impact, like this:

I was in a lobby with a friend tonight and noticed the prison didn't show up on the full sized map anymore. I told my friend and he didn't see it either accept on his min-map (expanded). Has anyone else noticed this?

I guess this is a good place to drop this: during the past two or so years of active playing, I've finally got all 181 in-game awards (on PC). Thanks to everyone who helped along the way.

 

Time spent in GTA Online a bit under 263d, overall income around 1.05B. Most, if not all rare cars found and kept. All special vehicles, pegasus vehicles, ceo vehicles, warcache vehicles, Halloween & Independence Day specials, helis, planes, boats, supercars, clothes, masks etc. bought. Around 2.5k personal crate source missions and the alien egg mission completed, and the epsilon t-shirt, the outfit and the ???? tattoo acquired. No bogdaning, no glitching, no duping. Just honest buy for a dollar, sell for two grinding.

 

Looking back, I think I've got my money's worth. Thanks, R*.

I kinda miss the old-school GTAO on last-gen...like, I really do.

 

If Online is even still active over there, i'd even unbox my PS3 that's been collecting dust for a few years now.

 

Yeah, for Casinos to be finally implemented, i'd be pretty hyped for, but i'm honestly getting bored of the incessant chaos and mess next-gen has become. There's been plenty of good moments, but far more on the experience I was used to.

Why do people tend to avoid Sasquashed? I voted for it on the voting screen, and when the game chose it, everyone left except for one dude who decided to sabotage the mission and troll me.

 

It's a pretty solid mission. Do people still not know that you can actually ditch the Sasquatch and hop into your PV to destroy the vehicles? It makes everything easier, as I despise driving the Sasquatch.

I still like to drive the truck, if you roll over the police cars just right they'll jump out on fire, so it's fun to troll them.  🙂

Maybe that's why they are leaving. Maybe they want to drive the truck but know someone will do it the less fun way with a PV.

I highly doubt that's the reason because two of them were literally using the MK2 in the mission before, rather than just fighting on ground.

 

I guess it's a matter of preference then, because I actually prefer to use my Deluxo in Sasquashed (driving only and no flying, of course). I find it more fun to drive.

They were stalling for a higher payout based on time, probably.

Question for PC players:

 

How are lobbies these days in terms of modders etc? I've always played on PS4, thinking about picking it up on PC for the different experience but I've never liked how the lobbies always look in the vids I've seen. Maybe it's different now that the game is so much older, IDK.

I can't say much about the sessions, last time I was in public was around 2017 or so, but there are other things to consider.

 

The game is older, but the copies are getting cheaper, being often on offer by regional retailers for around $10, so there's a lot of potential for script kids. However, I don't see any reason for you to play vanilla Online on PC when FiveM is available with superior... everything. For the mods alone PC is more than worth it! It's also easier on PC to maintain closed public community sessions with other players, if you still want to play the original Online.

Rando rando sessions can be quite bad. Depending on when you play and where you tend to land, it's quite common to find at least copy/paste script kid in a session trying to score cool points by trying out each and every option they find in their newly installed menu. Having said that, your first thing should be finding a crew who keeps to itself and plays with their own crowd in public sessions. Usually there are a few people in said crews who host sessions through VPN or otherwise sh*tty connection which keep randos pretty much out (unless they are in someone's friends list). There are many, many crews like this to choose from on PC. Uncle Google and his syfilis-struck gf Reddit can tell you more about these.

Well, the system requirements are listed on the R* website as follows:

Minimum System Requirements:

    OS: Windows 8.1 64 Bit, Windows 8 64 Bit, Windows 7 64 Bit Service Pack 1
    Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz (4 CPUs) / AMD Phenom 9850 Quad-Core Processor (4 CPUs) @ 2.5GHz
    Memory: 4GB
    Video Card: NVIDIA 9800 GT 1GB / AMD HD 4870 1GB (DX 10, 10.1, 11)
    Sound Card: 100% DirectX 10 compatible
    HDD Space: 65GB

But the rule of thumb is: if you can't play HD video, you won't be able to play complex 3D games, especially open world like GTA. There are also various videos on youtune showcasing performance on different configurations, so you can google that up before setting up your system or building your expectations. I can definitely say, that at 4k this game pushes even 2080 Ti, but at 1080p Ultra you will be good with cards from 2014-2015 (980 GTX was doing great). In busy online sessions CPU and RAM bandwidth are common bottlenecks so going from DDR3 1600 to 2133 will improve average FPS up to 10-15 easily.

Thanks man, I’m going to save this info.  I’ve done basic PC upgrades in the past, adding ram and replacing the video card ect.  I’m not sure this computer is even capable of being upgraded.

I must say I've got a newfound appreciation for GTA Online after trying out Red Dead Online again. I just don't feel the same 'feel' about RDRO as I do about GTAO, even at Launch. It just doesn't have that experience about it. I can always come back to GTA and have fun, most of the time it's for the Racing which I love.

Most likely because they're looking for someone to do the replay glitch with doomsday act 2 finale

If you guys had to pick one car right now to buy, what would it be? I don't impulsively buy cars anymore, so just wondering what others like.

 

Or do you think it's worth just waiting to see what the Casino DLC has to offer.

That always depends on the cars that you already have and what you like. From all the cars in the game, there are three that I like most: Enus Windsor drop, Schafter V12 and Comet SR (That fits my needs from the cruising to going fast). What's the common theme? I like the handling really well. Have a look at Viseris too, quite underrated but it has a lot of character and can go relatively fast.

 

I think that you should buy what you like now and enjoy it now, because sometimes another day could be too far away.

If it helps, I don't own a single car right now. 😂 Unless you count the sh*tty one I found off the street to do Missions. I had a massive spring cleaning a while ago, and decided I'd save up and pick a single car to drive. Having Garages full of cars I never drive is something I've always viewed as pointless. I never show my Garages to anyone so..

 

Only thing that does suck is not having Customs for Races, but I usually play with friends without Customs anyways. I'm not too bothered about the Super cars, wouldn't mind a Sports car.

Changes the perspective completely. You can go with a Schafter V12/ Armored as a go-to car, cheap and reliable, can take a beating and in a right hands can touch some supers. Or you can get the Carbonizzare for the missions, it's basically a Kuruma so you won't be shot in that thing and it looks better even if you don't dig the Ferrari looks.
