how to capture vehicle you're trying to source running from the cops

Question

DPRK

idk if I got the right forum, it's not a technical issue but I need support? I am stumped. I was trying to source a high-end vehicle, and I pressed thru my assistant's call so idk if I missed any tips, but the vehicle was speeding away from police chopper and car, and I struggled to even keep up with it, but I never figured out how to stop it with minimal damage. I did my best at shooting at the driver but I couldn't kill him and I just lost patience and gave up. Was there something special I needed to do to get him to stop? Only thing I realize i DIDNT do was shoot down the police chopper tailing him, but I swear by 10 mins into the chase all cops were off his tail...

 

this is really the only scenario I've ran into so far where I have no idea what to do! thanks

Well now that we have the EMP Mine, that could be used to temporarily disable a vehicle... but you'd have to catch up to (and overtake) the vehicle to use it. 

 

On this one, normally I try and get ahead of the vehicle before it's even moving and snipe the driver, if possible, followed by the tail rotor of the Police Maverick to sent it into a tail spin in the hope that'll minimise the chance it lands on top of the Source Vehicle and causes it damage. 

 

You'll get a 3 star wanted level (IIRC) when you enter the Source Vehicle anyway, so I usually have Lester already dialed up ready to "Remove Wanted Level" as soon as I get in the car.

I was halfway through reading this reply when of course, i triggered the same one for the second time. I got lucky this time and shot him thru driver window promptly. EMP mines tho?? I didn't know about those, how can I get those? Sounds VERY useful

I think you need to have the Arena stuff to get them, not positive though.

Snipe the driver from afar. No damage, no chase, and just the cops to worry about when you finally get in.

And this is possible at all 3 locations. Just don't get too close while you're figuring out your shots.

Yeah you'd need an Arena War variant vehicle and mines from the Arena War Workshop for that feature. 

 

If the Source Vehicle is travelling around 100mph, an EMP mine would shut it down for about 10 seconds, or 5 seconds once it's below 50mph or so.

hrrrmmmm according to the GTA wiki page it says Arena Wars mine variants only work in free mode and that during contact missions, heists, races, they are disabled and it forces the car horn back on. So can anyone confirm if they personally have used any of the special mines during car stealing missions or crate stealing??? the article doesn't say if you can still use them on CEO jobs, i don't think these count as contact jobs.

 

Sorry for all the questions, this is the very first I'm hearing about these special weapons. getting into arena wars sounds like a good idea the more i look into it regardless, all the cool vehicles and weapons and whatnot
