Gang Wars vs Drug Wars

Gang Wars vs Drug Wars

  1. 1. Which side mission do you prefer

Which side activity do you prefer? I personally prefer Drug Wars, it's a lot more varied, gets challenging the more you do, pays well, and less buggy/random.

I don't like Gang Wars that much due to the fact I had to be driving a motorcycle. If I didin't have one, I'd have to call a buddie of mine so I could drive a bike and start the mission. On the other hand, I could do Drug Wars whenever I want. And it has a lot of good rewards as a good amount of special vehicles.

gang wars of course. feels better due to more quality characters such as johnny or terry. drug wars are good as a side activity but i don’t like the stupid dialouge and luis helping them out doesn’t make much sense considering he said he was out of that thing.

Gang Wars. Drug Wars are just a reskin of Gang Wars anyway and I like how the members in Gang Wars can be skilled up. It feels more complete IMO and better thought out where as with Drug Wars it's like they couldn't come up with anything new or interesting so they just threw a new coat of paint on and called it something else. 

 

Like don't get me wrong Drug Wars are better than a lot of side missions, but against Gang Wars only it feels a bit lacklustre when you start thinking about it 4th dimensionally.

I like them both a lot, they're probably the best done of any infinite side missions in GTA. Feels like a real mission each time and lots of variation. Gang wars wins because being on a bike makes it more unique and challenging, plus drugs wars loses points because Armando and Henrique are insufferable and it always feels slightly jarring that Luis is still working with them even as he's meant to be leaving that life behind.

Gang Wars. They are far more challenging and varied. Yes, in comparison to Drug Wars, which feature four mission types, they have three, but you often don't get to see a certain mission type getting repeated for like three times continuously. Dialogue is far more engaging in Gang Wars as well, and the fact that the Lost backup buddies have progressive bars makes a better sense of progressing. Have I just mentioned the Lost backup? It's more intense to have six companions than two.

I also like how in gang wars you get people throwing f*cking pipe bombs at you. Once you get up some levels they can be really challenging.

 

Only thing I don't like is how although it's pretty much the only way to make any money in TLAD it's actually hard to make profit off it simply because it requires so much ammo, and ammo isn't cheap and there's only so much free stuff at your house. Johnny is by far the poorest protagonist in any of my GTA games. Not really a gang wars problem but just a problem with the game in general that it doesn't give you much opportunity to make money though (it's realistic that he's not rich just by playing through but there should be options to make extra cash if you work for it imo). Luis can get super rich by betting on cage fighting and Niko makes good money from missions and can always make a decent amount selling stolen cars but Johnny's stuck being poor.

Yeah but he isn't there after the story. Maybe I should've planned better or I'm greedy with weapons but in my main 100% save where I'm at 50 something gang wars I have like $80,000 and can't really increase it unless I do it really slowly or spend tons of time and effort to get free weapons. Even if I never save after dying I still only just about break even between completing a gang war and restocking weapons for the next one, and it takes more ammo with every one. Meanwhile Niko naturally finishes the story with close to a million and can make $10,000 in one go simply delivering a car and Luis can make multi millions exploiting cage fighting betting. I still have enough to play the game/buy what I want as long as I don't save after dying or going on a big ammo using up rampage but I'd prefer to have a slightly more comfortable amount in the bank.
