[GTAO] Stupid Pleasures That Make You Chuckle

Recommended Posts

fw3

Yes, this thread is about those stupid little things you do in the game, for no reason other than a cheap giggle, chuckle, or quick heh-heh.

There are almost an unlimited number of weird little things to do in this game that are far, far outside the normal gameplay or typical stuff that most people do in the game. Below are a few examples of some of the stupid pleasures I get from the game that crack me up.

Limited AFK Killing Spree:
Using every melee weapon to repeatedly kill an AFK player, just for kicks, over and over until they fight back or leave.


Landing Strip:

Landing your Oppressor on moving box trucks or cars on the highway.

Geyser Popping:

Driving into a fire hydrant until water shoots up, then throwing sticky bombs into it just to watch them explode.

 

Burn, Baby, Burn:
Aligning the rocket/back-end of the Rocket Voltic to a group of NPCs and blasting them.
Works great with vehicles, too!

xcInsvYxZ0G-qBjFsKP-5g_0_0.jpg


NPC Troublemaker:
Getting groups of 2-3 NPC characters to fight with each other.

 

foWy3lCo00CvKt_Y_2W8GA_0_0.jpg

 

 

Clearing the Cars Out:

Pulling NPCs out of their cars and not stealing the car.

Pedestrian Knockdown:

Running into pedestrians, just to know them over. Simple, yet so satisfying!

 

Driverless Training:

Climbing aboard the GTAV train, creeping up to the conductor, and shooting him. Makes you feel sorry for the conductor. Or not.

 

So, what are some of the really stupid, silly, inane things you do in the game - that are outside the norm of what everyone else might be doing - that make you just chuckle with delight at just how stupid what you're doing is?

Would enjoy reading about other player's exploits! Cheers! :)

flop gear.

going to LSIA and drive my car around the airport while pretending i'm jeremy clarkson.

Dentist's Bills

Jumping from one ledge to another knowing that the gap is slightly too big and so my character faceplants the other ledge, ragdolling onto the floor.

 

Suckerpunch

Punching the fat people on Vespucci beach from behind so they drop their icecream, or I make their hat/glasses fly off.

 

Have A Nice Day

Making a perfect smiley face by doing burnouts/wheelspins

 

Stock Car Racer

Seeing how much damage I can do to an NPC car before I destroy it completely.

(Goes hand-in-hand with; Stripped Naked - Seeing if I can smash all the panels, hood and trunk off of a car by crashing it without destroying it totally)

 

Sparklers

Shooting out two or more tyres and seeing how fast/far I can drive before losing control

 

Practice Makes Perfect

Trying to get that perfect slide round a corner in your car

Chasing bounties might be one.. but it is kinda game related.. so i guess not objective based:

 

Getting on the train, or the roof of a truck trailer/bus, and enjoy the ride haha.

Save the best for last:

Kill the last target in HeadHunter with a melee weapon.

Theres is (almost ?) always 1 'static' target, kill the terminator guards and you are good to go :) !

 

Lose ends:

Kill every enemy in a mission.

Usually more effective to just pass the mission, but just feels statisfying.

 

Mustket:

Only use 'old' weapons like Musket, Marksman Pistol, Double-barreled shotgun and sometimes the sniper-rifle.

Again not effective, but can spice things up sometimes.

I am watching you

 

Park your APC somewhere were you know other players are going to go, outside a car mod shop is usually a good place and then just sit there and watch to see what other players will do. You have to play totally AFK, so if you're sitting in the turret seat no looking around as this will move the turret giving you away. You'll always get some try hard who thinks they can blow you up (that usually ends well for them) but shockingly most folk just seem to mess around.

 

You can't land there

 

Get a Tula and try and land it in stupid and impossible places, so far the support frame for the cable car system on Mount Chilliad is one of the best (you literally can't get out of the vehicle without falling to your death) other favourites are on another players MOC, bonus points if it's moving. Or on a passing train, a bonus point for ever second it survives without clipping obstacles at the side of the track.

Operation Leroy Jenkins

 

This is what i do when the leroy jenkins are present in a contact missions or heists, usually they are the ones with the quirky and weird outfits, shooting like crazy in my car, and then when i arrived at the destination i drift into the scene and set my vehicle access to no one and drive away, and you shall see the leroy jenkins get whacked by the overpowered NPC hahaha

I swear there was a day when I got that perfect slide, it was in a Karin BeeJay XL, down by Vespucci Canal, trying to avoid the police.

 

Thank you for reminding me that there was one good day in my life haha

I got one, long-powerslide in my (normal) kuruma once, near where the first LTS you play in the turtorial is.

Felt indeed statisfying :).

I like shooting NPCs on bikes driving on the highway. Somehow, watching them slump against the bike and fall off at high speed is fun. I prefer to only shoot them, not headshot for a kill. Also head on collisions with bikes. Most enjoyable when said bike ends up under my car and explodes. Ramming NPC cars off the highway, and watching them fall to whatever is below. Bonus points if they land on the roof and explode.

 

I also like to get on top of empty trucks where I can 'take cover' on the bed as the NPC drives around. I like kicking the truck then, to make them drive more 'aggressively' as they attempt to get away. It works with white box trucks too, but you have to watch out because your character moves when the truck turns... also, traffic lights can knock you off. It's a bit sad this doesn't work with Picadors or other, smaller trucks.

 

Also after certain heist setups that respawn you next to Vespucci Beach, I'm usually in passive mode... and I love running into NPCs there, and then running all over them repeatedly until they 'die' and drop that sweet $20 as I wait for the next setup invite.

When an NPC gets stuck on my car spoiler or truck bed while giving chase or being chased. The rag doll physics and the npc audio of it being scared (if Im lucky enough for the npc still being alive) makes me chuckle.

Causing fights between NPC's

 

It's a matter of luck. Most attempts won't work, but when it does, it always gives me a giggle. You need to find a few stood close together. Then jump into one. If done right, they will stumble and fall onto the other NPC's, and sometimes, one or more of those NPC's will get pi&&ed off...not at you, but the pedestrian you knocked into them & then square up to them and start slugging it out.

 

The best I've managed was a 6 pedestrian brawl on the pier

 

-- firing rockets into water as I'm flying over. I just like seeing those spouts of water shooting into the air. And you need to get the depth of water right, or it won't erupt before you reach it.

 

--BMX down a mountain or riding at cars moving in traffic head on & trying to jump them.

Awesome!! The best I've managed was a three transvestite brawl over at the night club (across from LSC).

 

You can see pics of it in this thread, on page 2! Enjoy!

What happened just now. Using my Rogue to try and get a missile lock on a low level with a bounty as he traveled in a car. I ended up getting a lock on a nearby player and the missile went off to the side, but killed him and destroyed his PV.

 

After pressing down on the D-Pad to see the player list. It was a level 265 IGN member wearing a tryhard mask. So I only felt guilty about killing him by mistake for a few seconds.

Coming back to my game and seeing my character getting air-humped by two, sometimes three males. Then setting off a stickie in my hand.

*coitus interruptus*

 

This has happened so many times and I suspect it's a good portion of my pathetic K/D.

Mugger Madness

 

Call a mugger on a friend in a tank, aiming to have the mugger steal the tank from them and take control. This make take a few tries.

 

Once it does work, have someone get police attention and bring the cops near the mugger, and watch the chaos unfold...

 

*a variant of this is using a Cargobob to drop the mugger tank or an NPC-occupied tank abducted from Zancudo into an active PvP warzone and seeing how many people it can kill before it gets taken out

 

 

PV Relocation

 

While flying a Cargobob, look for people busy in a clothes or gun shop. If you can find their personal vehicle outside, pick it up and deposit it on the roof of the store before they notice you are there and watch to see how they react to not being able to figure out where their car is.

 

For players with bikes left outside, you can also purposefully park your own personal vehicle on top of their bike so they can't pick their bike up.
