Which is the better VIP mission?

Question

infectedG636

Hi. So Im trying to work out more money for my account. Im trying to do the strategy: after buying 3 crates you would do a vip mission so youll balance out any expenses. Which one is the most faster to do? Headhunter or Sightseer?

 

Thanks.

Headhunter is faster if you got a teammate and an armed aircraft.

Don't balance your expenses, it's absolutely pointless in terms of return and rationality. Keep getting crates and sell them as soon as you have enough: less time spent is the key here. Unless you can't finance another round, do not do VIP jobs.

Amen to the above. Does need two large warehouses to avoid the cooldown and maximise profit from the grind, but doing CEO work in between will only slow you down.

Headhunter is fastest, same with Hostile Takeover

 

Sightseer can send you across the map!

Definitely Headhunter.

It's almost always less than 4 minutes in the city, and often the same out in the county.

The Akula is ideal for this.

It's fast, pretty tough, can spam homing missiles when you come up behind the car at a traffic light, and gets rid of your three star wanted level with the push of a button.

 

Sometimes you get a tricksy carload who duck under overpasses a lot, but it's generally a pretty quick cashout. And more fun.

 

There are a couple of hiding spots that are most easily dealt with on foot with either a sniper or assault rifle, but mainly you can just fly around in your favorite attack helo and blast the crap out of the targets.

There's not much difference between them tbh, either way use a heli or jet for both, preferably a weaponised one.

 

No offence op, because this goes for most people that do crates and don't understand them; you make the money back when you sell the flipping things! Seriously! Have you ever heard of a shopkeeper who took up a second job to pay for the stock he buys before selling it on for more than he payed for it? It just baffles me that people don't get this. Really it does.

Headhunter is best for me when done in the city and with my Buzzard.

In the city, starting south near the docks or airport, the 4 targets are always all in the city. Completion times are about 4 minutes.

Also in the city more targets are not moving and the moving ones are slower with stops and turns.

Up north the targets are often farther apart and moving fast on the highway, some heading to the city.

 

Sightseer is boring and often sends me to both ends of the map.

while you don't need to do vip work inbetween crates, if you want to headhunter is good, but you make 42k per 3 crate mission so i wouldn't even bother if you have enough cash to fill 2 warehouses.

 

if you have 1 then do hh.

 

also, using a hydra for headhunter makes it by far the easiest vip work, however piracy is pretty good to afk if you want to take a break in a peaceful loby. if not fortified works in an mtu loby

Headhunter cooldown(10 min) can be reseted by playing a quick contact mission through a playlist. It doesn't work with other VIP jobs. Its a good trick if the only thing you want to do is playing Headhunter..



1-play Headhunter
2-once finished start CCO3 playlist
3-complete job quickly(3-4 min)
4-when you respawn Headhunter is available.


OT, I find Its best to only use Darnell warehouse, so I definitely fill a single large warehouse at time and play Headhunter to relax :)(and to pass the 2/3 min cooldown). Edited by Hécate-II

Awesome, many thanks!

I have Cleaning the Cat House on a playlist, quick and easy, takes up to 5 minutes in and out in the Buzzard, should be faster in the Akula.

The payout is small if you don't wait out the 15 minutes, but it's easier than robbing stores, and you get some extra RP plus the 100 for being a playlist.

I'll be giving that and Headhunter some mileage tomorrow between bunker resupply and sell jobs.
