I started like a week ago bought kosatka grinded it got the oppreser MK2 what should I start doing now ?

Quick question: can you play GTA V E&E (Story mode) without buying the online pack?


Character-Pipe-9805

just curious, when someone is doing a stand your ground… can you capture it in an rc vehicle? thanks


DestroGamaDx

What's the highest payout with using the staff to auto steal/sell product using the nightclub?


LucyTheThird

Nightclub staff doesn't do that; this upgrade is for reducing popularity loss per day, and some additional barkeeps.


DestroGamaDx

Ah ok, um is there anything that does? And while it doesnt sell they will steal it for me right?


LucyTheThird

Yes, there are technicians (those are not the staff update I mentioned earlier, by the way) that you can hire individually (max 5) to link to your owned businesses like bunker, MC business, CEO warehouse, or hangar, as long as those are in active status - no supplies are needed though, for the technicians don't actually use up stock So yes, the nightclub collects goods automatically (official in game lore, it's not stealing though) which is the whole point of it and that's why people often refer to it as a passive income source. However, you have to do the sales by yourself, no way around that. You can also gain goods I believe from business battles, but neither staff nor securities will help you there either. ​ There is an in-depth guide on the whole subject of nightclubs on this sub-reddit's [wiki](https://www.reddit.com/r/gtaonline/comments/uazl1v/nightclub_business_indepth_guide_for_next_gen_gta/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3)

Staff can't auto sell nightclub warehouse goods.


Ryan_K26

Hi I started up GTA online recently with the free promo they are running. I got 4 million and set up a nightclub with it but now I'm getting the feeling I would have been better off picking a different enterprise as the nightclub seems to rely on other business that I don't have. When I went back to the character creator to start again I did not have the option if starting a new enterprise with the other character slot. Does this mean Ive lost the opportunity? I thought maybe trying and deleting both characters but thought it might just lose me everything. Any help is appreciated, thanks


schoolhouserocky

Unfortunately you lost everything. I made the same mistake. I even contacted R* and begged for a second chance at the head start and they said "Tough luck."


Ryan_K26

That's a shame, thanks for letting me know. At least I know for sure now


doofpooferthethird

Don’t sweat it too much, once you grind enough to get a Kosatka submarine, you will never have to worry about money again. The Cayo Perico heist is hands down the best money in the game, 1.5+ million every 45 minutes, easy


Ryan_K26

Ok thanks for the tip, the submarine looks like it costs a lot, would I not need to invest in another business now to raise those kind of funds?


doofpooferthethird

There’s a few challenges that let you get $250k a pop. If you go to find Maude on the map and complete her missions (10k per mission, 5 missions) you get a cool stone hatchet. The hatchet gives you invincibility for a while after killing someone, and each kill extends the invincibility timer a bit. Once you kill 25 NPCs with it, you get 250k, just like that The other one is the Navy revolver. Every now and again you’ll get an email for a sort of treasure hunt. Follow the treasure hunt, use Google if you’re unsure about anything, and you’ll get your hands on an old timey revolver. Shoot 50 NPCs with it and you get another 250k If you want, you can invest in a 200k high end apartment and do the classic Lester heists, you get a bonus for completing them the first time. Be warned though, you’ll need 3 other people to do the missions, and if any one of them leave, you’ll have to start over, so they can be frustrating. But they are great content, and once you finish all of them, assuming you take the standard cut of 55%, you’ll get about 1.8+ million, once you factor in the first time completion bonus, setup and other random costs, and possibly getting a reduced take on the final mission of the bag gets shot up That should leave with just barely enough to buy the 2.2 million submarine. If you want, you can make up the difference by doing dispatch missions, contact missions, joining other people’s heists, VIP missions, stealing cars for Simeon, that sort of thing Since you have the nightclub, you can also do the occasional nightclub promotion mission, though your pay probably wouldn’t be too good without the upgrades, and investing in the upgrades aren’t too worth it at this stage Once you get the submarine, the money will come rolling in fast. It will take a bit of getting used to, but once you get the hang of it, you can rake in roughly 1.5 million per run, and up to 1.8 million if you get lucky with drops. I’d recommend buying the submarine helicopter, the Sparrow, once you can afford it, it’s the best helicopter in the game (fast, doesn’t count as personal vehicle, spawns right next to you, unlimited homing missiles, no insurance cost for trashing it, can land and takeoff from submarine). It will make all the setup missions go by much faster, and it will be useful throughout the rest of the game, it’s probably my most used vehicle After that, if you want to cross over to the Dark Side, you can buy a Terrorbyte since you already have a nightclub, then get the Oppressor MKII, far and away the most overpowered vehicle in the game. It’s a fast, convenient, and virtually indestructible flying bike with the best homing missiles in the game, and requires zero skill to use. The only thing that can kill it reliably without being defeated is a Toreador or another Oppressor MKII After that you’re probably set for the rest of your GTA career, you can do whatever you want and buy whatever you want for fun without having to worry about money


Ryan_K26

Thanks! That's very detailed, I will give it a go!


doofpooferthethird

Oh yeah no problem. You can also do the flight school challenges, they’re all pretty easy and quick, and you’ll get a nice $200k as well as levelling up your flight skill by a lot And if the apartment heists prove to be too frustrating, you can just ask a friend or some random person to let you join their cayo Perico heist and ask for a large cut. That should get you to 2.2 million in no time


LucyTheThird

Depends a good deal on your playstyle, and of course available discounts for businesses, because otherwise you are looking at pretty high up-front costs. At the beginning, without any assets, you'll have to grind free activities anyway, like contact missions, VIP work, adversary modes, racing, whatever you can handle best - and of course whatever is featured for bonus payouts during an event week (and we are speaking of 3x or even 4x payment boni becoming a thing recently). There's also various treasure hunts and challenges around (like stone axe challenge, navy revolver etc., best google them) Then there's also always the possibility you might decide and join someone else's heist, another money earning fast track. At some point you'll have enough money for some business investment, but businesses take a while before they break even, so the question will be whether from that point you won't reach the 2.2 M$ entry fee to the Cayo Perico grinding paradise quicker by just going on with your missions & jobs grind as you were. And that's your decision there and then. ​ Now the other side: You are not on a schedule here, it's not always about max $/hour, and maybe the first Million or so has left you fed up with doing missions and Sightseer/Headhunter over and over and you really yearn for a change of pace. Or maybe one of next weeks they throw away a nice Nightclub or auto shop for like 700K or so. Then sure, become proud business owner as a nice detour.


Ryan_K26

Thank you! Will definitely keep all this mind and have a mess about with all the ideas


rsdj

I have $1.5 mil and wondering if these upgrades to the cocaine lockup and counterfeit cash factory are worth it. I still don't have a bunker or yatch. Thanks


XarH

If you're actively running these businesses, then upgrading sure makes running them more profitable (and also make it profitable to buy supplies instead of stealing; if you're making full sells, Coke needs 2.5 supply purchases, and Cash needs exactly 2), but unless you really like MC missions, it would be better to invest that money elsewhere, since MC businesses are notorious for their raid mission that can get stupidly frequent even with the Security upgrade. I wouldn't recommend the Yacht, at least until you have a really good business setup and lots of savings. The Bunker (either the Chumash or Farmhouse location) is really good, and with the upgrades it can be easily run solo. If so far Coke and Cash are your *only* businesses, a much better option would be saving up a little bit extra and buying a Kosatka for running the Cayo Perico Heist (the best money maker in the game, fully solo-doable), and from there you'll be easily able to fund everything else, whether it's more businesses, vehicles, or other content.


rsdj

Thanks. I'll save up more money for the kosatka since I already have those businesses up and running. I do have the counterfeit goods business and 2 warehouses, but I don't really do much of those anymore. The counterfeit ID factory is also just sitting around.

Anyone else’s loading screen taking an eternity? My game was working fine a week ago, but for the past few days, getting into the game takes up to 15 minutes. It feels like the old GTAO all over again


schoolhouserocky

Mine isn't taking 15 minutes but it's definitely taking much longer than usual.


marksk88

Did the Speedo Custom proximity mines ever get fixed? I know they didn't work with the heavy armor, so I never bought them. I just noticed yesterday that you can still buy them though. Of course I wouldn't be surprised, but it seems very stupid and lazy to leave the option in the mod menu if they don't work, since everyone puts the heavy armor on.

Do I get any money when buying another bunker if I have the free paleto forest bunker from the premium edition?


Titan_Bernard

You would have to check that, the discount from owning the Paleto bunker should be shown on the purchase screen for your new bunker.


ilovekanyesballs

I want to start my first cayo perico (I’m new). I can’t enter through the sewage tunnel even though I scoped it out and it’s marked red in the menu. I’m using longfin and main dock as the infiltration point, but it already didn’t work when I used kostska and sewage tunnel as infiltration point. When I used kostska, the yellow circle (to show where you need to go) wasn’t there and I wasn’t able to enter the compound, when I try to use longfin I can’t even select sewage tunnel. Any tips/advice?


mwalter8888

Yeah I did the same thing my first go. As other user said above, you need to complete the cutting torch prep mission even though it says optional.


I_know_more_stuff

Did you do the cutting torch prep mission?


ilovekanyesballs

I will do that and update if it works, thanks In advance


ThatRedGuy235

I got the free PS5 GTAO deal and started playing the game. I got in, made my character, and started the first supply mission but got kicked for going afk since I had to deal with something that took longer than I thought. Now when I try to play it just gets stuck on 90%. I’ve tried restarting the game and the console. Idk what to do

ziggurism

What do the colors of the username mean in chat? How come a single player's username will change from white to blue to red within the span of a few messages?


TerzieffaCZ

Do you mean in freemode? They change in jobs, when you're in the same team (either on a co-op mission like heist, or the same team in a deathmatch etc.) the color is blue, enemy team is red (if there are more teams I think they're purple, then probably other colors). Quite often this bugs and the colors stay in freemode as well - I guess it can also cause that the colors are messed up and change...


Terrorvision67

Those that turn on CEO/MC will be designated by different colors. Any player in that person's organization as an associate will be the same color A red username will mean that person's mental state is unstable and they have been going on a killing spree.


TerzieffaCZ

He means names in the chat, those don't change when you're in an org/MC. Also high mental state makes your blip read, not your username...


ziggurism

There are people down this thread talking about maxing nightclub popularity by hiring DJs. I was under the impression that you spend more money hiring DJs than you can make while AFKing with max popularity in the nightclub. Is that no longer the case cause of a rebalancing?


mIster--WrencH

So long as your popularity is up, you only need to switch DJ for $10k to return to max popularity, so your net income for the hour will be $40k (50 - 10). You can save $10k and do a popularity mission, but time is money and unless you love doing popularity missions then it's easier to keep popularity up and swap DJs once ever 48 minutes


ziggurism

perfect, thanks


LucyTheThird

Popularity payouts have been increased, yes. Dramatically. Fully populated club now pays 50k/day (was 10k).


BallisticWolfey

Should I be able to use the LS car meet prize car, Gb200, in the tuner missions? I got the car from the prize thing specifically to use it in tuner missions and it doesnt let me.


DanielMattiaWriter

You can park a car in any **apartment** garage, then drive to the garage and use that car on tuner/auto shop missions. I had to do that to avoid using some POS on the prison break mission.


marksk88

And even this trick doesn't work for every auto shop mission, unfortunately. Although in my opinion, the most ridiculous thing was in the Union Depository robbery you steal an armored car from the bank manager, drive it to the robbery and then it's just gone when you need to make your getaway. WTF?


DanielMattiaWriter

Oh really? That's lame. I've only done two missions so far (the Lost and the prison break) and only learned about this trick for the prison break mission. Now I'm even more unlikely to finish the rest; the pay isn't really worth it for how much time they take, and listening to those two losers on the phone makes me want to put my face into a blender.


marksk88

Ya, I did them all once just for the content and since the pay is OK with the first time bonus for each. The only one I'd ever replay is the Fleeca job: I enjoyed racing from one bank to the next with a parade of cop cars chasing me. It felt like very pure GTA content, if that makes sense; driving fast, robbing banks and shooting your way out. The prison break and ECU jobs were my least favorite.


Elite1111111111

Prize Ride Cars can be anything. They aren't necessarily tuners. [Here](https://gta.fandom.com/wiki/GTA_Online:_Los_Santos_Tuners#Vehicles) is every car in the Tuner class.


BallisticWolfey

ah, thank you.


HilltopHood

New to Cayo Perico Heist--how many of the prep missions should I be doing? All of them? So far I did the finger print reader and I stole some sonar for the submarine


mIster--WrencH

Approach vehicle: Longfin. Preps: Plasma cutter / (or safe code if bearer bonds), cutting torch, fingerprint scanner. Weapons: Conspirator + silencers. That's it. The disruption preps are fun but not necessary if you are able to stealth the finale. Only really worth doing if you plan on heisting with randoms and someone is likely to screw up forcing you to shoot your way out.


Elite1111111111

Approach Vehicle - Any one. Doing more is redundant. Equipment: * Safe Code/Plasma Cutter (depends on the target. Only the relevant one will appear.) * Fingerprint Cloner * Cutting Torch/Demo Charge (One or the other. Cutting torch better as it replaces the Bolt Cutter, but you need to have discovered the drainage tunnel entrance.) Loadout - Any one. None of the disruptions are required, but they can make it easier. Air Support/Weapons are only relevent if you get spotted. Armor can be useful for finishing off a target before the alarm goes off if you miss the head.

DitDashDashDashDash

I suddenly need PS Plus to access GTA Online. I've always played for free until now. What could be going on? I'm on PS4 Pro btw.


LeeShawBrown

I’m sure you’ve always needed PS+ to play GTA Online. Free 2 Play games don’t require PS+, paid games do. Do you have a second account on your PS4 as the primary account, that has or had PS+?


DitDashDashDashDash

I bought it secondhand. There is only a guest account and I doubt anyone pays a PS plus subscription for. I restarted the game and it allowed me back online. Very strange. I haven't paid a penny to Sony myself.


ajackrussel

Is there a way to see what the make/model of the car in the auto shop that “customers” want upgraded when the option is there to buy it?


Verb_NounNumber

I'll admit, it's kinda silly they don't show youthe name of the car when you start, I agree. However, if you weren't aware, when you drive it out of the shop, you can check the name, destroy the car (there's no loss), walk back into the shop and another of the exactly same car will be sitting right there again.


OccamsPlasticSpork

What are the pros and cons of AFKing in a public lobby with CEO/MC turned off versus in a mission with CEO/MC turned off?


mIster--WrencH

The old AFK method was to start a mission with no timer (Blow Up 1) and watch TV in your apartment..When you came back hours or days later, complete the missions. The benefit of this was all raid timers were stopped and you didn't pay any hourly business fees, plus you could use the $15k supplies exploit. This was "patched" on old gen but there was a little known work around where you could still AFK in a mission with the addition of rubber banding the right thumb stick. I haven't tried this since switching too next gen and E&E. AFK-ing in any public session will see you charged hourly business fees and raid timers may be ticking - but these are so less relevant these days than they once were as I think most of the OG businesses aren't used very much (with the possible exception of the bunker and nightclub)

Collineus

Besides the Cayo perico heist and bonus money weekly jobs, what’s the best way to make money? Is it worth it to get an agency or vehicle warehouses for ceo offices? Or is there anything similar to these that’s a good investment? I don’t own anything except a few properties and nice cars.


Titan_Bernard

Nothing beats Cayo, but it's never a bad idea to have some variety. The Agency will pay for itself if you run the "heist" twice, and having the option to do Payphone Hits and the VIP Contracts isn't a bad thing either. With Vehicle Warehouses, there's this old trick where you sit on the lower and mid-tier cars and only sell high-end ones, that way you can guarantee a 100k a pop everytime. Takes some time to get through the lower-tier cars, but once you have it set-up, being able to run one little mission for a 100k whenever you need it is nice. I've made a few million off it myself. And as Occam as already said, you can't really go wrong with the more passive businesses like the NC and Bunker either, but the NC is fairly dependent on you owning other businesses so I'd make that a low priority purchase. Then again, if you have a free bunker and can buy a dirt cheap, small crate warehouse you would have the start of some passive income.


Collineus

Is an agency needed to purchase a vehicle warehouse or is it connected to the ceo office? And the crate warehouse is connected to the bunker business?


Titan_Bernard

No, the Agency is its own thing. You just need a regular old CEO office to buy stuff like the vehicle warehouse. As for the crate and bunker, no, the only relationship they have is that they both fuel your NC (with cargo and "sporting goods" respectively).


Collineus

Okay makes sense thank you!

Collineus

OccamsPlasticSpork

In the past the Nightclub required other businesses to be worthwhile, but now the safe fills up to $200k in four hours for doing nothing assuming you keep the popularity up. Of course if you have it linked to a bunker, cocaine lockup, counterfeit operation, meth lab and a crate warehouse/airstrip you maximize it's potential. If you want to go conventional start out with a bunker. You'll net 140k every 2.5 hours if you buy the supplies for $75k. Note that the only worthwhile locations are Chumash and the Farmhouse. Don't get conned with one located in Paleto Bay even if it's free.


Collineus

I’ve got the free one in paleo bay and it’s such a pain to get to that I haven’t put any upgrades into it yet. So basically I should look at getting a new bunker and and a nightclub? I’m not sure how the specifics of each location work or how the business connect but I’m sure I could figure that out. Thank you for the help!


OccamsPlasticSpork

The NC closest to the casino is "the best" because later on when you have the businesses linked it will be the shortest and safest path to Blaine County where most of your contraband drop-offs for the warehouse component of passive income comes from. You'll need an Office (just buy the cheapest one) and a small crate warehouse (location doesn't matter). The MC businesses (Coke, Cash, Meth) should be located on the southeastern shore of the Alamo Sea. They're useful for feeding the Nightclub. They are really hard to run solo and people don't like doing theses businesses these days because of the easier money of Cayo. The location of the MC clubhouse doesn't matter as you won't need to go there outside of the initial setup for your Coke, Cash, and Meth businesses. Weed and Counterfeit Documents aren't even worth the trouble. TLDR; get your Chumash/Farmhouse bunker and the Office and Small Create warehouse situated first.


Collineus

Sounds good thanks a lot!!


[deleted]

[удалено]


OccamsPlasticSpork

That's fair. I agree completely about Fort Zancudo being better than the LSIA. He'll need an MC clubhouse sooner or later for the MC President benefits if CEO status from the Office purchase is skipped.

durabledildo

Nightclub & AFK question: What is the best way to use the new NC safe amount adjustments to an AFK'er's advantage? i.e. what are my most time-efficient options to max out popularity from zero every day so that I'm met with a full safe when I log back in the following day?


nDupz

Probably best to max out popularity first, then collect cash and rebook DJ every 2 in-game days (96 minutes IRL) to top off popularity.


durabledildo

The question is what's the best way to max popularity from zero in the shortest period of time.


bob_the_impala

Switch between DJs.


durabledildo

How much / how many DJ's from 0 to 100% is it now? I'm seeing 10% per DJ change in my searches, 100K to get 210K would make things a lot less attractive (I assume I can skip cutscenes if I have my club set to private).


Elite1111111111

It skips the cutscenes if you do it from any computer that isn't on the main Nightclub level. 100k for 210k is at least better than nothing.


bob_the_impala

I don't have any numbers, but it's either do that or a lot of popularity missions (or just forget about Nightclub popularity). It also depends on if you have the Staff Upgrade or not, as that reduces popularity loss.


durabledildo

I have all the upgrades, but the popularity is going to be zero over 23 IRL hours either way. The question is whether an AFKer (i.e. not someone checking in every few hours, but someone who checks in and sells AFK once a day at most) can use the new safe mechanic to their advantage at all. My grinder is LSCM Rep 930+ so come 1000, I won't be able to get >200K to offset daily fees that way anymore. And I am not doing ~100 security contracts to get that thru the Agency safe, so I was wondering how else I could offset daily fees.


bob_the_impala

I'm not sure, as I have never personally done any AFKing for that long. I suppose you could at least try it once to see if it makes sense for you. Also, as far as the DJ cutscenes go, they won't play if you switch from one of the basement computers.


[deleted]

[удалено]


bob_the_impala

I've never let it get down to 0 popularity; I have the Staff Upgrade and all four DJs. I think the most I've ever had to do was either switch DJs twice in a row, or maybe a popularity mission after switching DJs to get it back to being at full popularity.


seinhall

doubt anyone is gonna answer here, but my post kept getting deleted... *so:* >I'm grinding some money to buy the Kosatka (and the sparrow to make travelling easier). I'm like rank 19 last I checked. I'm about halfway there (2.1m) but I've never even seen the mission done.

I know it's the best heist in the game, but considering everyone that said that to me is on PC, I don't know how true that is for new-gen consoles. >I don't know much about the requirements, but I have the cheapest penthouse and an office (for ceo). >Anyway, I hope it's not as hard as I'm making it out to be. Thanks.


TerzieffaCZ

Someone will always answer your questions here (unless you have some super unusual question that no one knows the answer for) - that's exactly what this thread is for... :) Yeah, it's easy to do solo - there are plenty of guides you can watch, I think TGG had a good solo guide. But of course it won't be super easy at first, it takes a bit of practice, also the scope out mission is long for the first time. Once you're able to do it really fast, you can make around 1.5 mil in an hour. Don't expect to make this much at first though - but I mean, there's no point in rushing it... For the first time just enjoy the story and the island, you will have plenty of time to care about best money/hour later. Btw you can just buy the sub without Sparrow, preps can be done without it as well, and get the Sparrow when you can afford it. The setups are all freemode missions, easy and repetitive - but again, don't expect they will go 100% smoothly for the first time. Best way to get around the island during scope out is stealing a bike and riding that. Yes, it's the best way to make money, it doesn't matter what system you play on - new gen doesn't have some new super profitable grinding methods that PC or old gen doesn't have...


LucyTheThird

If you are generally familiar with typical contact mission stuff - go there, shoot up people, grab stuff, flee under fire - the setup missions will pose no additional challenge. ​ The only stumbling block really is the very first intel mission because it contains some very long video cutscenes, a seemingly never ending task list, and some clunky sneak mechanics. Can get a bit frustrating, bring some time to tackle that one. After that, everything else is rather easy, really. Either watch people's playthroughs or have fun figuring out your own solution(s). When you repeat the heist, the intel missions will be much shorter, by the way. ​ So, apart from losing some more time on the very first run, you will fairly quickly arrive at a point where a whole heist - intel, setups, finale - can be done in about 60-90 minutes, with a payout almost always 1-1.5 M$, so there's definitely your 5M in four hours, yes. Just don't expect this from the very beginning. ​ You don't need the penthouse, by the way; that was a misunderstanding people made over the way how to access a certain location on your very first set up. If your guides told you that, you should look for better sources.


ItzTr1kSh0t

Why does the cayo perico alarm go off for no reason sometimes? Like I could be perfectly safe and haven’t shot any cameras and even haven’t shot any guards yet and completely unspotted but yet still have the alarm go off is it some sort of glitch?


Elite1111111111

Do you drive around vehicles at all? It's weird, but I've found that the driving guards get immediately alerted if they spot a parked stolen vehicle.

It happened to me as well https://www.reddit.com/r/gtaonline/comments/rtkw6s/some_3rd_attempt_at_trying_guard_clothing_and/ I disabled the power station, and flew past the tower, having the guard uniform. At times I think it might be that the guards are spooked if you go too fast near them. The cameras can detect bodies, so make sure to not leave any in front of the camera's vision cone. Don't shoot a guard while it's in the vision cone of another guard. The personal guards (red cones) from the compound are very sensitive, make sure to not kill one when it's near the other (the one from the second floor and the one which patrols the gate and can get just below the one from above). Try not to shoot walls, sometimes even a head shot going through and hitting a wall can alert them, I'm using low power weapons for headshots (pistol). If a guard fell but was not killed, shoot him quickly again so he doesn't have time to react. I'm experimenting with bolt cutters vs cutting torch, as the first one seems to be quiet, and the second one might attract attention (I've seen a comment about this, and also got caught while using it on a lock).

notsogrumpnikki

thank you! I've been driving my hard top around for hours. been looking for a soft top since Halloween to try and recreate the Christine car. my friend logged in on her account today to collect money and saw like 5 soft tops lol


mr_jck

In case you still looking, found some Tornado soft top spawning around Davis/Rancho, or Pillbox Hill/Downtown, just by driving some classic muscle car. Sometimes during prep/contract missions for Autoshop/Agency.


mr_jck

If you have a standard Tornado, you can convert it at Benny's (for 375k) and have a special Tornado Custom, with soft top, nice liveries, hydraulics, etc. https://gta.fandom.com/wiki/Tornado_Custom

Why wouldn't you just get the christine car instead? It seems easier to me

No, most of the time I can't even reach the compound, I always get caught near or at the check point

Thanks, this should be helpful


tomtomtom2310

Am I the only one R\* keeps taking ammo from? First It was only specific weapons, then it was a MK2 weapon for a few days. I thought maybe it didnt safe. Now all of my throwable explosives are gone? I know that Rockstar will do anything to make players buy shark cards as their whole game is just designed and a scheme for that, but taking ammo away from players? Really? We're that low now? 😅


MyNameisTravisBickle

They took all of my heavy lazer weapon ammo. I didn't even bother making a ticket. I should of though.


Brettf84

It happens to nearly everyone. I have contacted rockstar support about it myself and they are aware of it, I have found that it happens a lot less when I don’t use custom weapons loads out so I have every weapon enabled and just threw away the guns I don’t use


Miepmeister

I do remember being able to start a job from the menu on ps4, did they change that for ps5? I cant find the option for jobs


LucyTheThird

It's still there under the online tab, R* just renamed it into "Quick join". Can't confirm personally though, I don't own E&E version.


Miepmeister

Quick join? Why there, that's confusing.... Anyways thx, ill have a look at it later


mIster--WrencH

It fooled me too when I first upgraded to Series X E&E. I think it was LucytheThird then who also pointed out the obvious to me


rorokuu

Will armor plates mage my insurgent survive more missiles? And which weapon on the insurgent custom is the best to use? If it is the stock mg why is that the case


00Makerin00

Nope, just the armor upgrade affects how many explosives an armored vehicle can take. I think they’re both good, this is a good comment about this: https://www.reddit.com/r/gtaonline/comments/6xsiu7/why_do_people_say_50_cal_is_better_for_insurgent/dmi5hv4/


1CellAmoeba

Is the arcade mct upgrade worth is for grinding import export vehicles and crates? My arcade is in la mesa and has sleeping quarters. I think the grind cycle goes like source and sell top end car -> vip job -> source three crates; can someone correct me on this? I also just fully decked out my oppressor mkll.


Elite1111111111

Terrobyte is better for CEO stuff, since you can source the crates/vehicles from anywhere. MCT is better for MC/Bunker, since you can buy supplies from a central location.


XarH

If your warehouses are closer to the Arcade than your Office (I'm guessing they are), it sure would be easier to grind them for long sessions. Though, do you happen to own a Nightclub by any chance? If you do, adding a Terrorbyte + MK2 Workshop would cost around the same price as an MCT, and it's a much better option for grinding (can spawn it in numerous places, quicker access than entering a building and walking all the way to a computer, and you can park it next to one of your warehouses as well).


SmellySucc

I’m in a different country at the moment (south America instead of North America) and the lucky wheel says unavailable? Is there a solution or am I just locked out of it while traveling. I tried it two nights ago and got the message, gave it some time and checked today only to see the same


XarH

R\* disabled gambling (Lucky Wheel included) in [several countries](https://rockstarintel.com/gta-online-casino-update-list-of-countries-which-have-banned-the-casino-features), most likely to avoid running into possible legal issues. So if you're travelling, you're still gonna be affected regardless of where you come from. The only real way to cicumvent it is by using a VPN and connecting to a server in a country that gambling legal. I'm not sure in which country you're currently staying, and even though chances are nobody would really care, I'd still advise you to check the legal status of gambling in your current location before trying this approach.


1CellAmoeba

I recently just got the MKII oppressor and want to start grinding some of my businesses, specifically the bunker. However, my bunker is all the way up in paleto bay; is it worth it to buy another bunker closer to the city, or to just buy the arcade upgrade?


1CellAmoeba

The arcade is in la mesa, and i was thinking of getting the mct upgrade. I already have the sleeping quarters its great


OccamsPlasticSpork

I sure hope your arcade isn't in Paleto Bay. Having property in that area is worse than not having the property at all with the exception of perhaps the MC Clubhouse.


XarH

Regarding the Bunker, yes, move it. Either to Chumash or Farmhouse, they are the best locations. Only buy the Bunker's upgrades after moving. About the Arcade, which one in particular are you referring to? Upgrades don't affect the heist itself,(practice gear can help, but you can also practice it [online](https://johan.li/gta-online/fingerprint-scanner-simulator)), and filling arcade machines increases the office safe income (tho you can use the default machine in every slot). If you're referring to the MCT, then it kinda depends, it helps with multiple businesses, but if you're mainly focusing on the Bunker business, it's not too critical. Though the living quarters upgrade is nice, it lets you spawn there (great if you do lots of casino runs), and also comes with a gun locker.

Gta missions keep failing specifically humane lab raid first setup mission god help me im suffering so bad


Titan_Bernard

Yeah, trying to do missions like that with randoms can be very painful. Assuming you don't have friends you can call upon, try to look around for any Discords or subbreddits that you can get people from (there's several subs in the sidebar). You could also join a grinding crew.


michiel11069

But the problem is. It doesnt natter with randoms it just keeps failing just stopping


name_cool4897

Does the Zeno work now or is Rockstar seriously still advertising a $2,000,000+ car that you can't drive? I see an advertisement for that car just about every time I log on and I was under the impression that once you start customizing them, the hitbox goes to shit and you can't drive it anymore.


bob_the_impala

It's the hitbox on the mirrors that causes problems. As long as you leave the default mirrors on, it will be fine. There is at least one other older car that has the same problem (XA-21 maybe?) and they haven't fixed that yet, either.


name_cool4897

I didn't know it was specifically the mirrors. Can I customize everything other than the mirrors and it'll be alright?


bob_the_impala

Yes, anything else should be fine.


name_cool4897

Thanks 👍


AkulaYourFace

Hello guys Is there a way where i can reset my PS5 character and start from 0 with the $4m and choose a business?


Battle_Bear_819

I'd have to check when I'm at home, but I think you can manage your saved characters and delete one of them.


AkulaYourFace

I did that but sadly it's not leading to the point where you can choose stuff again. Has to make a new account 😮‍💨
