Guys I need help Patrick McReary event spawn for me but when I shoot the cops out of the van I can't get in the vehicle the van would be locked and I have to abandon the event in order for it to spawn again it happens to me every time when I try and get in the van please help I need to complete the event

solution: kept changing session while registered as CEO with one friend in my CEO so van won't lock on me

That sounds like an odd bug. I haven't even been able to get the event spawn, but I think there needs to be more than 4 people in a lobby?

 

Anyways just keep trying dude. I am not sure if I even have the same bug since I haven't gotten past killing the cops on the first place. I've only had it spawned in twice, and the first time I heard the voice, "hey help me" I thought it was the cop, so I tailed the van for about 20 minutes, thinking it would lead me to some sort of shootout somewhere.

1] Find the van (i ended up waiting at the ammunation thats close to zancudo base, but theres a few spots where u can wait to have it spawn, search around a bit if having it spawn is an issue in itself)

2] Follow the van & be cool, dont have cops on you, dont shoot & wait for it to stop at a traffic light or turn
3] Quickly park your car in front, hop out, shoot at a nearby NPC (NOT at the van/drivers)
4] What should happen now is the cops see you shoot the NPC, they get mad, you get wanted stars, and the two cops in the van should exit the van to try arrest you
5] Shoot the cops, hop in van, lose cops, bring to marker, profit.

 

Good luck! :D

The Patrick McReary event is still buggy no matter which way you do it... sometimes it works as expected, sometimes it doesn't. 

Can't tell you how many methods, locations and attempts I tried and never got any success... maybe one day it'll be fixed.

I'll add how I found it in case others get any success from this small nightmare of a minijob.

 

As you drive up the freeway towards the prison, just north of there is a store on the left of the freeway there, park there for a minute and drive South slowly towards that intersection by the prison. If not, try driving back to the shop slowly.

 

I've seen it spawn next to that store and also coming down the on ramp to the freeway too. But if it does spawn, keep a few yards back and listen for Packie's dialogue and let that play out before attacking the van.

 

These were in an invite session both alone once and with 1 other buddy the other time too so public isn't needed.

 

But good luck folks! :)

I hope it will get fixed soon because I really like this dude's load out and I need to use him in my heist

I guess you could still try finding someone who hasn't unlocked him yet and join his organization as an associate and then let him trigger and complete the random event with you, then Patrick would be unlocked for you both. It was always bugged for me as well, like the cops just walk out of the van, etc, before I lost all my arcade progress because of the 2nd character creation/deletion bug and then he wouldn't even spawn for me anymore. It wasn't until I used my alt account as the CEO and trigger and complete the event with my main as an associate that I finally unlocked him.

Do you think that might work well I am now even struggling to make him spawn it's been like 8 hours of me siting doing nothing but switching between session every 40 mins to get him to spawn

Well, the method I used to tell if he actually spawned is just drive around his spawn locations and gain a wanted level so you can see all the nearby police on your mini map, and if he spawns, there will normally be a very dim police blip on the edge of the mini map.

I thought it was a pretty good way to tell because I have had him spawned in paleto bay on the highway and I was in the middle of grand senora desert and without this method I would have never known that.
