The Apocalypse designs for the vehicles - is it possible to remove the rusty look from them? I like the features of the Apocalypse designs but would like to have non-rusty versions if possible!

 

Yes. It's just a livery. I took mine off and went with metallic anthracite black. The armor covers a lot of it though.

Same (I changed it because the matchmaking option doesn't show up, so if you have it closed as default you're f*cked).

Nope, it's just a peg vehicle.

 

I'm a little confused by these Pegasus unlocks because didn't Fun say there was a Monkey Blista at 20? Taxi was definitely the first I unlocked because I got the "Pegasus" award for unlocking my first peg vehicle at the Arena.

Ah right ok I misunderstood.

 

And then the "bonus vehicle" for reaching SKILL level 20 is the MGGB.

It looks like it's for the drivers that get taken out of a race to give them something to do while the rest of the field is fighting it out. 

 

No for random schmucks to wander in and screw around with the competitors.

 

If that would be the case, then why even have the door trigger when in freemode?

Well I'm going to test this. Maybe this fixes my issue.

Is the tractor really that important to own? What are you going to do with it once you got it? Never call Pegasus for it? 

And why not play these modes for the fun of it? Why do you have to look at is as a grind?

Important? No. To satisfy the collector in me? Yes.

 

I'm sure the modes are fun, especially if you're playing with friends. I'm just frustrated at the high cost of entry, limited return on investment, and the high bar for all vehicle unlocks.

 

I've come to peace with myself over not getting all of the trophies in this game. I've given up on the Kifflom shirt and I'm only at around 600 secroserv crate missions. But, up until this point, I've had pride in getting the rare or unique vehicles. There is no way I'm going to be able to put in the thousands of hours of playing a single game mode to unlock these vehicles. It frustrates and upsets me that R" thought it was a reasonable benchmark to include in the game for vehicle unlocks.

 

I'm also not interested in the Mad Max style cars. If there were new cars that I'm interested in (like a functional JB 700), then I'd pay my $5m entry fee, play the game mode a few times, and be happy. After all, its only a week of AFK night club "grinding." But, the lack of cars that interest me on top of frustratingly high unlock benchmarks is enough to keep me away for now. I'll probably buy it when a new DLC that interests me comes out and pulls me back in, just to stop the calls and emails.

I managed to glitch this outfit into freemode. Felt good to finally, FINALLY have the Hat again since I missed the transfer deadline, sadly though, I have to resave the outfit everytime I start a new session to keep it. 

 

Do you think it's possible the hat will be dripfeed or at least an exclusive one time Unlock? Seems strange rockstar would tease us like that by putting the Pisswasser hat on an Arena wars outfit.

It's been a while since the police uniform was popular, what happens if you glitch a  cop hat?

They removed every outfit that had any police element, which isn't as bad as banning or whatever, but still a dick move.

Nope, you can use whatever. The versions have like different guns or looks but none is 'better' than the other, generally speaking.

Looks that way. Or you could just skip the races where you don't have a car. I went 5 or 6 in a row yesterday before I did.

The new annis car has plasma turrets but what's the point?

They seem to perform exactly like the mounted turrets on nightshark, deluxo etc

sh*tty damage, practically useless. They only exist to make cool pew pew sounds

On the Dominator they are decent, but mainly just something different as I can't imagine they were intended to be Ruiner 2000 rocket damage level weapons. Still far better damage output than alot of the pointless mg mounted normal cars, you can shoot at an npc car's rear for quite a long time with the Nightshark's MGs before it is destroyed. Takes only about 4-5 secs with those plasma turrets on the Dominator.

Wondering that myself too, they work in Contact Missions so that's a good sign.

Well regarding the unuseable wall, it suddenly worked today. I was able to trigger it and it gave me an introduction on how it works.

Conclusion: Me not being able to use the wall was (yet again) another bug.

You can use any custom car in any game mode regardless of the style of the match. But the non custom vehicles you're given only match the style of the match

A win in 'Wreck it' also counts as a win for the 'champion' and ' cruisin for a bruisin ' awards 

 

Same for a win in carnage. Depends how its played a win will count also for the 'slayer' Award or 'death brigade '

They actually work, like against traffic & such yes.

Car type does matter though, has an impact on ram effectiveness + control of your own vehicle upon impact.

 

For example the Dominator tends to still lose control/stability often in head on collisions, yet will effectively move the incoming car out of the way with a ram.

The Brutus however with a similar ram, will maintain much more reliable stability in such a head on hit.

As much as I love the Dominator, I find myself using the Brutus more in heavily congested situaions simply because it's more efficient with the ram.

Huh, so it is like the APC or whatever GR vehicle it was.

One or two of those weaponized vehicles couldn't be used in Heists either, while others could.

Yet R* allows these new vehicles to be in contact missions, so I'm not seeing their logic. 🙄
