Pedestrians Randomly Beat Up Cops?

Recommended Posts

SA33076

I was walking in el quebrados, and walked past a sheriff, then a ped crosses the street and starts to punch the cop for no reason. The cop then shoots the ped. Why do some peds get aggressive with cops for no reason?

NPCs do random acts of violence. Including Road Rage. Aircraft fly themselves without pilots, too.

You've never seen that before? It's actually pretty normal thing, happens all the time. Just like the other way arround - a cop starts chasing a ped just like that. (how I see that is that ped tried to steal something from other peds that were walking there, the cop saw it and started chasing him).

However, there is one weird thing that happens to me from time to time: My guys (GSF) just run to a car, take out a coward pedestrian, and simply kill him. Exactly the same way they do with Ballas. I first thought it's a mistake, the game just replaces a random Balla guy with him, but it happened more times, happens from time to time, so it's definately something else. Makes no sense to me, why the Families would attack him....

Very old glitch. That pedestrian that's dressed in a blue sweater and khaki pants is a type of glitched gang member. Also goes by MALE01 in the game files as he drives every single vehicle in the entire game with the exception of aircraft. He can spawn in the game as Balla gang members driving Tahomas and Majestics while smoking weed and driving. He also spawns as GSF members doing the same thing in their gang cars. CJ can even recruit him as a friendly gang member.

 

 

OP: @lil weasel answered your question. Random NPC's commit crimes. Just like in LS when a police officer spots a drug dealer selling drugs to people they will both start to exchange gun fire back and fourth and if any gang member driving around hears it, they get involved in the shootout as well. SA just had a bunch of small details like this :D

This happens all the time, and that's the great thing about San Andreas, you will see random acts of violent crime in the city streets, fist fights, melee weapon attacks, shootings, gunfights, it all goes down.

Who are you calling coward? I am currently in my Brown Streak with my army of clones in Unity Station. We will surround you the second you walk out of your house.

 

But yes, if you are fast enough, you can find Male01 when you exit a house in a GSF turf after loading a save file.

 

I have a new theory about this game. San Andreas is property of the Soviet Union. In San Andreas, people attack cops. In San Andreas, cops steal from you.

 

Now with all the awful jokes set aside, let's say it again. GTA SA is an immersive game with lots of life throughout the entire map. Carjackings, attacks against cops, police pursuits, and police helicopters flying by are usually separate things, but they can sometimes happen together. (GTA V never managed to beat that.)

Because V's ghettos were pretty meh compared to SA's. There's acutally mods to bring everything that SA had over to V regarding the player witnessing random crimes and not just those dull police chases with NPC's.

I don’t understand why rockstars didn’t add to GTA V because it add more life to the city tbh

Wrong... MALE01 is used as a fallback model when a ped model isn't loaded just in time, hence why CJ and MALE01 is running in memory all of the time. You can make your game somewhat 'crashable' unloading them. That's why sometimes spawns as gang member or anything weird but about appearing everywhere as a Bobcat driver or a Linerunner driver for example is an intended behaviour if I remember correctly.
