What have people found to be the best mission/race/activity for $/minute rp/minute??

Getting frustrated by all the sticky boom loons in free roam!

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

I beat Death from Above by myself by stealing a fighter jet and just making passes at the house forever before parachuting in. Seemed like the only way and I didn't want to make someone wait forever for me to do it. Also, I forget who it was, but some 2+2er was going around killing me a few days ago and I was so confused as to why. Try not to kill people on your crew

I know man...
Started out with free aim, because it made SP great and I actually assumed it was the only option at the time. Hard to pass up assisted when everyone else is using it.
We should start some free-aim only crew deathmatches.

Nice post GG.

Can I get an xbox crew invite from someone. ..?

Can't invite people (or join) in game I believe.
You'll have to create a rockstar social club account and join http://socialclub.rockstargames.com/...rban_achievers (C/Ped wrong link earlier).
No invites required. Then link your XBL tag in profile. Will add you on XBL later.


Apparently have to hold the weapon wheel displayed and THEN press b/y to drop ammo/weapon for selected gun. Definitely haven't done that so far, so hopefully this works.

The rhino isn't very fun since we can't blow up other people's cars.

Got a 14 day code and a 2 day code, thank you very much people!

Canadian Thanksgiving is going to be much easier now that I can distract myself by murdering randoms!

If you blow up too many player's cars, you get stuck in bad sport lobbies for 2 days with all the chumps and tools. You also get to wear a dunce hat.



That's not me it's some other chump.

That sucks that people can vote you as a bad sport because you blow up their car. How do you even vote some a good/bad sport?

I was somehow voted out of a session this weekend and I'm not sure why or how. Can randoms just vote you out of a session?

There was a bug where a single person could vote to kick you. I'm not sure if its been fixed though, never been kicked before.

There's no voting involved with bad sport. You and your friends can't even get together and blow up each other's cars without getting the label.

maybe i was naive in thinking online mode would also consist of story-like missions that you could do co-op. so far it seems pretty repetetive.

also i'm mostly playing with randoms which might be why my experience so far has been pretty meh. i've only teamed up with 1 friend and we ended up in huge lobby's and not even really playing together.

(with that said is there an xbox crew!?)
This is the first GTA game I've played online and I'm only level 5. I feel the exact same way so far...

I'm going to wait until lvl 15/survival before I make any judgements

I agree that just playing the vote-option missions game after game in lobbies isn't fun, unless you know the players and/or are communicating or just enjoy racing.
ATM the pool of that playlist isn't good enough with the terrible star missions and missing jobs, the actual missions really.
Just did a voice comm. jobs session with Rempel and it really improves things. Even though we kept failing for the most part
One big flaw other than the missions is that you get the same blue crap voting screen after completing jobs with a lobby. Would be awesome if they gave the host an extra option to directly choose from all the jobs he's reached the level necessary for for the next game. (jobs = missions from lester, martin etc.)
You'll def. enjoy survival (with teamwork players/communication) if you're generally into that sort of stuff.


Aside from survival mode SMG, bombs, sniper etc. access will also greatly improve experience with jobs, survival and death matches, but also just in freemode, which imo can be made enjoyable no matter what.

starting to get a little tired of the "steal the meth*, drop the meth off" missions as well.

*you can replace meth with drugs, tankers, vehicles etc

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

I just tried to play online, played a team deathmatch with pistols which made me feel like I was playing Halo with how long it took to kill someone. Then there were three guys in the online portion that were talking so ****ing loud. Took me a few minutes to figure out how to mute them.

I kind of lost interest in playing pretty quickly. I guess I feel like I don't have any direction and sitting in a lobby waiting for a mission to start is annoying.

I'd like to maybe getting 100%, but:

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

After G0tGame and I finished (GG dude!, thanks for being patient), I was messing around and was casually talking to myself, like all super dudes do, and some guy started asking me questions about where to get planes, etc.

Some random heard us talking and got really angry, asking what we were doing in his game, and said he was going to contact Rockstar and have us banned. Wow!

If you're playing with friends/crew I don't really see any point in playing in public lobbies unless you want to troll people.

Re: GTA V - Online Now (semi)Availible

i don't mean to sound like a dick, but could we design a better looking crew emblem for the ps3 crew? it's just a generic skull and the opaque background especially hurts it.

there's been some amazing looking ones going around reddit recently and i understand that kind of quality takes time, but i'd be happy to help.
