Long time player's outdated habits

Recommended Posts

manicmechanic71

Are any other older players still doing things that have really gone out of fashion now?

List your illogical GTA habits... here are some of mine.

Using the BF injection because it was the only garageable (not sure that's a word!) Stolen car with a bulletproof back.

Using the assault smg because it was free and great for headshots - there's got to be a reason gang attack stats mention headshots, surely?

On that note using gang attacks to restock ammo, and survivals to gain unlocked weapons rather than buying them ( pretty sure they nerfed that one!)

Standing on top of objects in passive to go AFK because you used to be vulnerable to cars in passive.

Playing contact missions at all! Lol!

I just started playing again a little bit after months away, and I find myself using tactics that don't work as well now as they used to. Gotta get used to - and obtain - some of the new toys.

 

re: BF Injection. On last gen that was my favorite car. With the switch to current gen they messed up the camera angles, and driving it feels like driving a toy (plus when you load up a sticky bomb, the camera moves to where most of the car is off screen). I wish they'd fix that - if so I'd still be driving that car.

You are still vulnerable in passive :) even on a ledge if you position the ramp buggy just right, or if a chpper or hydra gets passive bailed lol

 

I still buy snacks even though they're free

I still jump the "Prepare for Take Off" ramps and use Player Actions to communicate with other players. ;)

I still use ATMs. I find it quicker than using the phone.

I still do contact missions as a "cooldown" from freemode.

I still "park" my character in one of my "homes" before logging out for the night.

Proper old skool!

The snacks reply made me smile too, eating tons of them as a low level who had been lucky enough to be invited in high level missions like rooftop rumble and coveted when guns were still level locked!

I've been playing GTA Online since spring 2014,and I do have some outdated habits.I earn most of my money by doing contact missions, solo races, selling cars to LSC, delivering vehicles to Simeon and robbing stores (along with clubhouse contracts and daily objectives,which were introduced later).

Oh, wow... I remember when weapons were level locked and when a level 17 wasn't able to tool down the street in a Rhino (back when Rhino's caused a lobby to scramble!) lol!

I still drive over people in passive, countless times. They think everything phases through them. Only to go AFK and come back to find out their beloved shtty K/D ratio dropped.

I still stand on ledges in passive to avoid chancers in cars.The chances of getting passive bailed from an aircraft is quite low unless you're in a session with some really demented players (yes you two HARBUJAHN and Arrows to Athens :lol:)

 

I haven't played my second and third characters yet since rejoining the game but I would always join a survival for the Heavy Sniper before going into Freemode.

Also, Merryweather chopper lift, and no I don't kill the pilot.

I still refuse to buy Redwood cigarettes so I can do the "nope" animation even though I haven't used that animation in years.

Not sure if this applies as an outdated habit but I also still send a mugger after anyone who begs for money drops, that never get old.

This to a tee. For whatever reason, these old activities never burn me out on the game, but MC/IE/Bunker/Hanger crates stuff does.

Back in LG I used to steal gang cars for a living. When I got a PS4 the first thing I did was go after that nice custom Sentinel I read so much about. I occasionally still go after Dubstas, Sandkings and Sentinels. Also Simeons deliveries when there is a profitable-ish car in the list (looking at you F620). I also call for cabs sometimes, still have fun crossing Raton Canyon in one lol.

I still change my clothes in shops, from the days when I had no wardrobe because I 'lived' in a 6 car garage in Harmony.

Pretty much this.

Just not solo racing. My favorite race tracks are the standard races from day 1.

 

I play free mode events like king of the castle.

Oh boy, well here's my list.

 

I still do Contact Missions, they never get old.

I still do Gang Attacks, lots of fun.

I still do Survivals because they're fun.

I still abuse 1v1s for Rhinos and such just because.

I use the shower.

I buy ammo from Ammunation because it's nice.

I still go the Strip Club.

I still go home before I sign off.

I still rob stores.

I still mug people in jets just so they lose the one thing that mattered to them.

I still watch the TV, the satire is still generally funny.

And I love buying a Merryweather Helicopter Pickup service, and still get pissed off when my dickbag friend shoots the lovely pilot in his temple.

I'm shocked to discover I'm far from the only one doing this stuff! This week is pre-dlc week for me only doing things from before beach bum, and driving original cars whilst wearing original styles!

I generally do this because I played tons of LG when my PS+ wasn't up. Besides they're great and fun stuff to do.

 

Oh yeah, forgot. I still use Airstrikes :p

The first thing I do after logging in is to check daily objectives. Every time. If they are easy enough to do solo, I actually do them.
