Message added by Spider-Vice,

If you are reporting a new bug, please be as descriptive as possible about it and include repro steps to the best of your abilities (when possible). Easier to read, easier to confirm. If you are on PC, describe your environment (hardware, OS, driver version, etc.).

Did a heist with randoms, they drove vehicles into the yellow circle for the grappling hook entry and wanted to jump over the wall, while it was not a bad idea, it seems to have messed up the game and grappling hook entry could no longer be triggered even when the vehicles were no longer there, known issue?

I just lost my prep progress after helping a random with her first cayo perico heist.

I had scoped the bonds and preped everything to a point where I would have been able to start it. After helping the random I got a message from pavel as if I had hosted the heist and all progress was gone.

  1. When you joined that heist, were you active as VIP, CEO or MC president?
  2. After the heist, was the host with you in the freemode session, and were you still in their Organization/MC club?

I have had this happen to me in the past and every time, I was CEO. Took us a while to figure out that this was the problem.

Make sure you are not VIP, CEO or MC president if you join any heist. Don't even join their organization/MC club.

Go in passive mode, and have them send the invite to your phone.

 

Spoiler

First time it happened to me was when doing the Bogdan glitch back to back with friends.

I forgot to disband my CEO, we do my friend's heist (he invited me directly into the mission on the phone, not through his organization in facility at planning board)

When we're in the hangar, my friend leaves, the game makes me the host of the session, and since I was CEO, my Bogdan progress got marked as completed.

 

The same thing can happen with Casino and Cayo Perico heist. Your friend doesn't even have to do the "Bogdan glitch" for this. Getting disconnected from them makes you the host.

Bear in mind you can also use the CEO bug to avoid the CPH quick job cooldown, if you hate yourself. Just set one up for 25k and reman CEO. This actually seems to solve the CEO quit bug too 🙄

 

Doesn't work if your host is an MC President obv.

1. I were a VIP since my secondary charcter does not own an office.

2. The other player came to the same freemode lobby afterwards.

Whats strange, I was in my own org not in the heist hosts org after rejoining freemode. I did not check during the heist however.

Ok, then that is the problem. As far as the game is concerned, you finished the Cayo Perico heist as VIP, so it thinks you completed your own heist, not someone else's.

Next time you join someone else's heist (either by invite or on call) don't be VIP, CEO or MC president.

 

Also, I have seen youtube videos of the Cayo Perico heist, where players have different blip colors, and I have been wondering about that.

Maybe joining the Cayo Perico heist doesn't put you in the host's MC/Org, but leaves you in your own. If that is the case, definitely disband.

The thing is, I have done it before, multiple times even, without any problem. Always as VIP.

My secondary is practicly VIP 24/7. When I switch back to my main right before shuting the PC down she is registered as VIP. When I come back the next day and switch over to her  she is already registered again.

I remember that happening to me on the casino heist once or twice.

Did you have your CP heist finale ready to go all those times too? You shouldn't lose your heist if you have preps left to do and are not allowed to start the finale.

 

Me and my friends tracked it down to this: (how to lose a heist finale, step by step guide)

  1. You have a heist finale ready to start. (Doomsday, Casino, Cayo Perico)
  2. You are VIP, CEO or MC president when you join that same finale as crew (either invite or on-call)
  3. You respawn in freemode after completing the heist, and you are still VIP, CEO or MC president

So, you won't lose your Cayo Perico finale by joining a Casino heist.

You also shouldn't lose your heist if it isn't ready to start because you need more preps.

 

But, if you have any heist finale ready to go, don't join the same one as VIP, CEO or MC president.

Maybe get an office so you don't have to deal with the VIP cooldown, if that is still a thing.

 

Off topic, but some people have even lost OG heists by joining a finale while they had their own ready to start.
Maybe this is due to host migration, but that is harder to predict, as there's 3 possible new hosts when the host leaves.

I hope that anyone had the same problem as i had recently. I've completed all heist preps and i've selected all of the steps to start a heist but can't click Continue at all. Does anyone run into the same problem?

I have also lost all prep for both CP and Casino this way.   Shameful that this bug hasn't been sorted out yet.

So, this happened yesterday - Scoping the island, I collected the first treasure chest and another player spawned onto the island using a Jetmax, landed his boat, got out and proceeded to run around the island. His name wasn't visible above his head and his player 'dot' didn't appear on the island on the pause menu. As far as the game was concerned, he was not on the island, except he was. I play on PS4 and very rarely if ever play in a public session (when I do I change MTU settings for selling cargo) except for yesterday when I just happened to be in a public session. Is that a glitch or completely normal?

Just seemed odd how the player name wasn't visible nor was his 'dot'

A couple bugs I've noticed on PS4 (sorry if they were mentioned already):

 

Anyone else have their sub go full Toyota and accelerate uncontrollably? Fast traveled from Paleto to Vespucci after doing the sonar jammer setup, went to drive to move it closer to the pier and before I can do anything it's barrelling full speed at the beach. Winds up beaching itself and still wanted to keep going. returned it to open water fixed this.

 

If you put on the scuba suit and hop in the dinghy to go to your sub, when you hop out the scuba gear will be equipped and you can't take it off unless you enter your sub.

 

Leaving the sub for a setup seems to forces my minimap to zoom in, easily fixed by double tapping down on the D-pad to expand the map and it'll be zoomed back out when the map shrinks, but still annoying because it does this every time.

 

Anytime I request the dinghy while in a vehicle the radio station always changes to KULT, but it also seems that even if I get out of the vehicle then request the dinghy, the next time i get into that same vehicle the radio will be set to KULT even if it hasn't moved since parking and I haven't left the session or anything.

 

My setting for auto-show aircraft helmet seems to revert to "on" anytime I leave the session either for a mission or logging out/logging in to Online.

 

Anytime the snorkel/scuba mask gets equipped when leaving the dinghy or after driving the sub (which only does it sometimes) it doesn't unequip unless I manually do it (even logged out and back in and it was still equipped when i logged back in).

If you are about to "contaminate the water supply" - make sure you are atop the water tower before initiating the prompt.

 

If you are given the prompt to contaminate the water supply and accept it on the ground level... You will..  Die... 😆

Fun pointed out, the interior of the water tank is an instakill zone as technically a player could fall in while their CEO had it open.

 

So this is bug meeting a bodge 👍🏻

I think the instakill zone that is in the water behind the compound is still there when you are escaping. Twice now my group has been getting into a boat that is against the wall and someone just falls over dead for no reason.

My fiance and I are unable to complete this heist together,  doesn't matter who is hosting. We have been trying this together for the past month. As soon as we get past the first checkpoint and we're at the compound... It says the MC president has quit. Rockstar support is useless with their 'copy and paste' answers but what I'm looking for are tips to at least reduce the chance of this happening again. I did see other players above have had similar issues. Any solutions??

This is our set up. 

1.) We both usually have the finale available. 

2.) She is MC President.

3.) Invite only lobbies.

 

After her or I are kicked the other player is free to complete the heist alone.

Did you tried as a CEO? I know it sounds funny, but sometimes it makes difference. Be in the same lobby, in the same Org. when you start the heist, etc.

Have not tried CEO yet. Does us starting in an invite only affect that as well?

Well, in my experience it most likely does, cause it skips the majority of time when one persons joins the lobby. If you are in the same one it should be more or less instant. I've noticed that if you take your time waiting for someone to join it's WAY more likely for all sorts of bugs to appear. You don't want to spend too much time in the options screen.

You should play as CEO for no other reason than your other players will get a health regen bonus when close to you.

 

I agree the most stable way to launch is both of you in the same IO session, join the org there, then launch.

Playing with a friend the finale, went to the fingerprint hacker in underground, the game just decided to lock me up forever on that animation just before the hacking screen comes up. Then I asked my friend to kill himself, and even we on Hard with 0 lives, the Heist didn't fail and I was just stuck there forever. Went to the creator and closed the game, f*ck this sh*t.

 

Had a perfect run, Halo jump into Comm tower, grappling hook and guard uniform there, a batch of Coke just on the field, intercepted a Supply truck, perfect executed entry, then cleared out silently most of the compund  to fill our bags before going to the primary target. Man, just so frustrating to lock up there.
