Stranger missions online broken?

Recommended Posts

Hakshaw

Hey guys, is anyone else having extreme issues with the stranger missions? If I go to start them they either trap me in an eternal load screen or they never start and just remove all the other stranger missions off the map. Sometimes when I come into the lobby there are no stranger missions at all. What gives?

Similar thread down this same forum page. Yes, they need fixing very soon. Mine worked better than usual today, not once I had to reload them or give me another, mind you I was playing alone, no one close by. The npc's are still glitched though repeating the same dialogue, clipping with environment ect. Find another session or close down ya game and retry. I have them dissapear from the map every now and then. Usually if I close the app on PS4 and restart the game they are back.

Not an excuse the moment they turned the micro-transactions on. Sorry.

A company with some moral standards would only add micro-transactions once they have a complete product.

Goffman is right. The fact we're expected to Shell out more money for an incomplete product makes me wonder which EA employee Rockstar hired.

I wish it stopped putting me in an empty lobby whenever I initiate a stranger mission.

HOLY BUMP!

 

just 5 minutes ago, I again got NOTHING after doing "on the hunt"! WTF?! (first bonnie let me down, now hamish is doing the same sh*t)

within 2 days/2 different sessions, stranger missions didn't pay in the end. no xp, nothing!

 

they worked "just fine" days ago. I was off the grind for 5 nights, and now I come back to see R* was/is out to ruin the fun again!

ffs, R* stop doing what you're doing in the dark, without telling us, and just let me have that little bit of fun with stranger missions. I DID buy some goldbars...doesn't that count for nothing you greedy motherf*ckers you?!?!

*stabs with a pen*

Mine's has launched nearly each time today with a bit of delay, 10 minutes after it was on one by shaky near twin rocks I already had given up on it and suddenly <stagecoach hold up robbery> popped up, by then I was already near great plains, what a clusterf*ck....

not sure if already mentioned, but if you could not start the stranger mission, leave the area, 50-100 meter , come back and he will have a new mission.

wasn't about NOT starting, there just wasn't any reward upon finishing. the missions just, ended...

after 30 minutes of investment, which means I was robbed of 25 dollars, 0.24 gold and some 500 xp, 2 times! so make that 50 dollars, half a gold bar and some 1000 xp!

 

I did reconnect, switch areas and do other stuff inbetween but it was just flawed, thus I stopped playing and watched netflix instead!

Worse than before IME... it used to delay a bit when doing it with a posse but now even solo runs are glitching out.

They definitely have, glad I'm not the only one to have noticed.

 

They have also seriously reduced the spawn of animals north of St Denis, especially gators and herons.

A couple days ago I was in a lobby without my friends but strangers in it. I was not in a posse. And all of a sudden I had a mailbag to deliver. I was in St Denis and had to go all the way to Hennigan’s Stead.

 

In conclusion, a mission I tried starting two days prior eventually started.

On the first day of this event, I discovered a new glitch. I did the On The Hunt mission for Hamish near Fort Wallace, and killed an op Grizzly in Cumberland Forest. Not even a minute after starting to take the pelt back to him, I was notified that someone stole the pelt, that was still on my horse. Looking at the map revealed a different player taking a bear pelt across the Great Plains to Blackwater. That Posse all the way across the map was able to complete thier mission, and the game wouldn't let me deliver the pelt I had. So I just quick joined a story mission, got some XP, gold, and a little bit of cash from it.

So does it appear that things are somewhat back to normal again?  At least on XB1?  I was in a session where none of the shops were working, and of course I had quite a few pelts to sell too.

one mission worked, other didn't start...next one wouldn't pay, I guess, but I didn't find out as I immediately stopped when things broke.

fortunately the session wasn't all too bad since a bear, again, killed me a 3 star cougar and left it for me to pick up. thanks for the 20 bucks, bear!
