Terrible Sell Mission

Recommended Posts

MastuhWaffles

So be warned, since rockstar gives you random sell missions for the hangar stuff you can get put with the mission that can really screw you over.

One of the sales is to deliver the goods in the twin engine plane with the turret on top. However the plane is very slow and instead of just flying to the sell points (5 each per plane) you have to fly to them under 4 stars with regular spawning choppers and the red enemy ones.

When I did this I had 2 people with 3 planes, since the planes are slow and weak the chopper did enough damage to kill the engines. Now recently I went to sell with my friend, it was the same mission but since it was only 5 cargo it was 1 plane. However even with me in the gunner seat blasting them out of the sky, they spawn so much we didn't even get to the last sell point since they have god tier aim and accuracy. Once the engine starts smoking its over. It's really dirty and rockstar needs to up armor the plane or do away with the 4 star garbage.

 

On top of that I can't earn any associate bucks since it keeps saying the transaction failed, thanks R*.

I`ve got my 42 collections completed so I`m washing my hands of the whole business aspect from this update. Even if they 2x the payouts or something I doubt it`s really worth the effort.

 

I may get back in if I feel the need to be punished. But as I`m married, that aspect of my life is already being taken care of.

It sounds like for the level of hassle of these missions the payout should be 4x as much as it is.

Can you bribe the cops through CEO menu?

 

It's 12k a pop but in this situation it's seems like a life-saver for your sale since there would be other players flying other airplanes and being helpless, I'd seriously consider using it.

 

Also, the Mogul STINKS!

Mogul Sell is the quivalent of Boxville Sell.

 

Except the Mogul is made of paper and once one engine lets out the tiniest bit of smoke it breaks down faster than a smoking savage.

I had this sell mission as well...
- Full hangar, four people.
- Just after spawning outside a military npc truck crashes in to my plane and gives me stars.
- can't call lester... so NPC jet blows my engines up before I even left the place

Restarted the game and I lost only 3 crates so thats not bad.

Sorry for making another post, but I can't stress this enough.

 

I managed to lose both enemy copters. One crashed and the other got stuck on a pylon. I made abeeline for the last drop point at North Calafia way where you do Crystal Clearout 1.

 

When I passed Redwood Light Track I noticed tiny puffs of white smoke. Now keep in mind from here on to delivery poitn I did not get shot a single time.

 

When I reached the middle of the Alamo Sea, One engine died and the other engine started dying. Quickly.

 

Again, once this plane starts smoking a tiny bit, it dies super fast. It's not because of your supposed bad flying. I can fly a Velum smoking black on both engines around the map no problem. The Mogul PPBPBHBHBHT die instantly

This is indeed a terrible sell mission. I've completed it twice when we only had one plane and 2 people. My friend was flying a Buzzard and shooting the enemy choppers down.

First time we tried was 2 planes, 2 people. Did not make it into 3rd drop. This was the reason we started selling 10 crates at a time, lol

bah. Only 3 planes? Try to sell 8 Havoks with two delivery points for each, with just one other player. We finished it just in time.

in this case, Smuggler's Run is not intended for a few players, you need until 8 players if do you wanna sell without problems.

 

This is a list I have in my Smugglers Run guide on a Spanish page. It's in Spanish, but I think it's easy to understand. ("existencias"= supplies)

 

Número de vehículos que saldrán a la hora de vender según la cantidad de existencias que tengamos:

Según el número de existencias (Hunter, Alpha-Z1, Seabreeze, Mogul o Cargobob (con dos contenedores mínimo si vendes dos existencias)):

10 existencias o menos: 1 vehículo.

11 existencias o más: 2 vehículos.

26 existencias o más: 3 vehículos.

Según el vehículo que salga:

Havok:

10 existencias o menos: 3 vehículos.

11 existencias o más: 6 vehículos.

26 existencias o más: 8 vehículos

Skylift:

10 existencias o menos: 1 vehículo.

11 existencias o más: 2 vehículos.

Ultralight:

10 existencias o menos: 2 vehículos.

11 existencias o más: 3 vehículos.

Bombushka:

10 existencias o más: 1 (solo sale si juegas con más jugadores).

I have a feeling this is all in response to solo public lobby truthers. R* is now actively trolling you with terminator NPCs and missions that are impossible to solo.

Nope sorry bribing the cops doesn't work either, it's a proper pain this one is, just switch sessions it ain't worth the hassle

bribing is disabled and you can't get the cops off by calling lester.

Rockstar needs to do something because you literally lose all of your work because of bad design.

It's not bad design and there is no such thing as R* logic they have put a lot of thought into this game and a lot of these issues are there on purpose purely to piss us off they must be laughing at us moaning whilst there thinking up the next R* logic scenario to piss us off

I actually (almost) finished this mission with a single friend though. The reason we crashed was not because of damage, since my friend could kill both enemy helicopters long before they could open fire on us, but because I thought, on the way to the last drop, that it would be funny to fly upside down... the damn thing plummeted like a rock.

I like to think that they are so out of touch that they actually believe players think this level of challenge is fun

Apparently if you fly in formation it can repair planes, but can it accouter the constant the barrage? And obviously you cant do it with 1 plane.
