Just began getting bonus for narcotics, up until now it would have sold for 10k per unit.

21122517_1624092640944242_76992419410187

 

Still works out to about 5%/5 units right?

 

I'm not seeing a difference between cargo types.

Yeah the missions are harder depending on the cargo type, but I'm also yet to see a difference in profit.

20/50 of Counterfeit Goods cost $240,000 (20%bonus)

Yeah was hoping for some cargo to have a higher risk/reward or risk/annoyances. That jammer mission needs to yield at least 2 crates for how long that takes. At least I get to fly a hunter.

Doesn't Ron mention that destroying other people's cargo increases the value of your own stock? I don't see this mentioned anywhere I look and was wondering if anyone had anything to share on the matter?

 

Maybe this is a way to make smuggling a bit more profitable?

Not true, you have to actually steal them, I've stolen 3 so far.

And how long does that take in total and can you do it solo? I gather that I/E is more profitable?

I/E is probably the easiest thing to do in this game as far as profit return goes.

 

Ok, so the Titan escort mission for stealing cargo.

 

If your plane gets in the way of the Titans flight path... you go boom. Titan survives. If you were in a personal vehicle (hydra etc) you will respawn in the air with the Mogul provided by Ron for that mission.

So far I've been testing the numbers for "Animal Materials".
The prices increases seem to be at every 10 units and the prices increases by 12%.
I will continue checking and updating when I can.

The amount of crates per mission depends on number of associates. It's not worth it to do it solo I think. I can't say exactly how long does it taken me but it's defo over 5 hours and that's with some help of my friends.

Where do the sales take place? Los Santos? Or Blaine county? Also is there an option for Local & Remote sales like MC_Biz & GR?

To be honest I'm going back to import export ...

 

 

Those who are sticking to Import/Export should still get a hangar in my opinion, so they can place a Cargobob there (and maybe a Hyrda / Savage). Being able to spawn Cargobob right next to your feet is like a dream come true for any Import/Export grinder :)

 

Hangar is like Mobile Operations Center. It's useful and profitable... but not in the way Rockstar expects.

Same as CEO Crates. No option for a sale location. Thus far I did one sale for 100k and it took me 80% over Blaine County and 20% over Los Santos.

 

My hangar was at Zancudo.

How can I tell which crates will have more difficult missions? Every time I go to source one it tells me mission difficulty is based on the crate I'm getting, but it doesn't tell me which ones are harder/easier.

So far in all the videos I've seen, when players ordered their PV Buzzard by using the interaction menu it spawned pretty far away. The Cargobob really spawns near you?

That's the original amount you get for it. It was 200k because last week's event had double money & RP on vehicle exports.

I ground out crates all day. I first collected random crates and was able to sell 50 in about 4 hours. So i decided to sell the small amounts and focus on chemicals. By 28 crates of chemicals i had a 35% bonus. Right now im sitting at 44/50 and still 35% and ready to sell for $594000. So what im thinking is that the bonus caps at 35%

Also - havok - imho not worth it, it's not much more agile than the buzzard and drastically underpowered with the slow fireing .50 cal, even if it may be a teeny weeny bit more agile (which for me it isn't) it does not give much, buzzard is still the quickest and most deadly heli in this game

The swift is quicker than the buzzard and always has been... Not gonna trust the word of someone that can barely fly helis in the game and doesn't realise the differences.

You do realize I'm talking about waponized vehicles for assistance in mission completion? thus the quickest and most deadly description used. Good luck with taking down lazers in your swift dude. Playing since day one, and tons of hours spent in a heli, and just sharing my impressions with regards to the havok - that initially seemed like the 'lil agile machine, and yet even if it is more agile and quick than the buzzard(which at a first glance doesn't feel like it, but maybe someone will run some tests and prove me wrong in a youtube video which I won't even watch) its gun fires slow, poses minimal threat and does not handle in a 'new way of life' kind of way as I initially thought it might, and I prefer the buzzard as an attack heli - that everyone here knew was the best go to all around vip helper from the very beginning. You can buy four havoks and be happy about each of them, I bought one, upgraded it to the max and after flying 2 missions with it thought that the greatest thing about it is tha it can be sold so not all is lost. Do not believe me when I say that the buzzard feels just as quick and agile as the havok, lands in a more stable manner and has way better firepower, you grind your own buck and spend it as you prefer, gold dolla rims and white blazing jumpsuits if this is your idea of fun :)

Havok looks as it should take off quicker than you can think, yet it musters the power to do so much longer than it should, it turns and lands after sharp turns in a very nervous manner and when trying to do a 180 with blazing jets on my tail I'd rather buzzard the sh*t out of my flying skills than rely on the havok to get me out of it

Actually i think it caps at 50% i saw someone show a picture earlier of his stock at 500k and 50% bonus which he could sell for 750k.
