    Np, getting back into it myself from all the talk here. Have around 13 million so not stuck for cash atm. Most of it I got over the year just from twitch prime and psplus monthly million. Twitch prime gaming also gives good discounts on vehicles every week

    Made a balls of my first attempt at the heist. Cool intro through the drainage system. Missed the headshot on the 2nd enemy, all hell broke loose, 2 quick deaths later and I'm back at the ****ing docks in LS. Tried doing quick job from my phone, chose heist alone but wouldn't start the job. Had to go to single player and then back to online just to respawn in the sub to try again. Wish it just put you back in the sub in the first place. Regretting my crackshot loadout now.

    Edit: same ****ing thing happened on my 2nd go. Anyone on PlayStation wanna jump onto a heist with me, no setup, main perico heist mission.

    Aw **** sake, not going good. On 3rd go, i loaded into invite only session as randoms would join as soon as I'd open the job configure screen. Started again and put me straight into the heist with 3 other people, they kicked me and i ended up back at the docks unable to move, had to restart the game..

    dont shoot guards, give them a smack of the gun
    turn off matchmaking (in main gta settings) to stop randoms joining your heist

    you usually dont need to kill the guards that are stood looking at each other, unless you need a keycard

    Sorry just saw this, was that you Genisis? If not, sorry, just finished it after copping on there was a quick restart option! The last escape took a few goes but mostly from rushing and wanting to go to bed. Got out anyway with 1.46 mil and rounded up to 3 mil with bonuses for completing and other things but i don't know how to check those to see what to aim for.

    I could only carry 1 painting and 1 stash of drugs so would be interesting to raid the place with 4 people do would be on for doing it another night with a crew definitely.

    Read today that more people completed solo than in a crew so Rockstar are going to keep the solo option going in future heists. Now.... What to spend my cash on...

    Aye tis me alright!

    No worries you're grand. Was just about to hop on P5 Strikers, so thought I'd offer at least.

    Coke is the best single person payout, and you can carry 2 of those, same with Paintings. Weed is the next best and you can carry 3 and a tiny bit of those with Cash finishing bottom of the pile but you can take 4 of those.

    Gold is obviously the best target as a duo or group, but going solo, try find Coke as the secondary targets to maximise your take.

    As you've just finished the heist for the 1st time, you'll get a call to do it again after a few minutes. This'll unlock Hard mode giving you an extra monetary reward for primary and secondary targets.

    you can escape by just jumping into the water and swimming away

    theres a few spots near the compound where you can jump in

    Saw this guy put a list of business together in tiers, looks like I'll buy the arcade next to start the casino heist and then as I slowly buy up businesses, I can run them from the arcade. I like that it has a 10 car garage as well, sounds like a good base of operations. Annoying loading into the casino and moving between the room, lobby, garages, etc.

    I read the casino heist prep can be done solo so will try that first and see if anyone is free then to do the heist some night.

    Any recommendation on good Arcade location?

    Actually, might do Perico again to make a 'handy' mil to get me a bit more comfortable.

    Lastly, any good site/social media to follow who releases leaks on what bonuses/discounts are coming? I might save a few quid holding out to buy certain properties maybe.

    Seeing all these properties, looks like I have a lot of work/fun to do.

    The closer to the casino the better. When I started the casino heist the arcade in paleto was free with twitch prime but I had to drive all the way to the city at the start of every prep mission so I just bought the one south east of the casino to save time.


    Also in case anyone was wondering, the arcade machines are a complete waste of money. There was a money glitch one day last summer so I bought them all but the arcade's intake doesn't go up that much compared to having no machines and produces way less cash than the bunker and drug buildings.
    They do look nice though so they have that going for them :pac:

    Thanks for all the advise lads!!

    I started Perico again, did all prep in about an hour, no problem whatsoever. Started the heist on hard mode for the necklace for 1 mil. Did the heist in 13 minutes, no lives lost, no hacks failed and swam away from the island (great tip!!). I didn't get extra loot which is a pity but I didn't know I needed to for the Elite challenge so but sickened with that. Came out with 880,000 though so not bad for an hour's worth of fun. Have 3.8 mil now and will get another mil from ps plus next week so gonna move onto the arcade next. Having a lot of fun with this (bar forgetting to go into invite only session and getting wrecked by jets during prep missions).


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,559 ✭✭✭refusetolose


    the next thing you should be doing is setting up a few mc businesses (coke and meth are best) in conjunction with a nightclub

    when you set that up you will be earning money just by being online,then you can continue with the rest of the stuff, all while earning money for nothing from nightclub :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,506 ✭✭✭✭Varik


    Penthouse

    Just to give the penthouse some extra points, the thing is mostly cosmetic you get somewhere to hang out/digitally flex but it does have some benefits.

    A few minor ones that make little difference, but there is the fact that if you own it and complete the associated missions (which story wise are what occurs before the casino heist) then you get 1m and a free weaponized armoured car.

    The cheapest option for the casino is 1.5m so when there is a discount you make that money back with the missions the 1m bonus for the owner and the completion bonus for each missions, and then you get an alright armoured car.

    Armoured Paragon R

    Arcade machines

    You get 1 free machine which is like the TNMT 4 player machines kind of thing which takes up 4 slots each. The Arcade machines are bought once and can be placed as many times as you want, and there's no benefit from expensive machines. So you can place that 4 cabinet machine as many times around as it'll fit and if you bought the cheapest 90k machine you could fill that out for the rest. Even if you don't buy a second machine you should fill out the arcade as much as you can.

    You don't need to do anything with the arcade it just put cash in the safe and you'll get a message when it hits the make of 50k to go collect it. It's 5k per in game day if you've it maxed after buying the additional 90k machine, not sure what it is without filling the place.

    It's pennys compared to everything else but it's just ticks over in the background, and if you buy the master control unit to manage all your other business eventually then you'll likely be spawning in the arcade by default.

    Nightclub

    The nightclubs default income is based on popularity which unless there's a bonus I don't bother keeping up, but if you own (even if they're not active) some of the other business then you can also start getting stock of that item. So it's not A ranked by itself you've to have some of the other stuff already.

    You can have 5 warehouse guys working on 5 difference sourcing items from your other business. The delivery is always only 1 vehicles you get the smallest delivery van by default, and if the delivery is larger you've to use 1 of the 2 larger ones which you buy. Buy the largest truck as the middle vehicle is worse is all regards.

    Depending on how much micromanaging you do or how many business you have the pay-out for the warehouse here is ~1m, but you can just leave it going and sell when full you don't really need to do anything other than sell it.

    The PlayStation plus bonus isn't automatic anymore, you've to go onto the PSN store to get it. March was the last month you just got it by loggin in.

    I think the weekly payout from Amazon prime is still just by logging in.


  • Registered Users Posts: 29,549 ✭✭✭✭Zero-Cool


    I got the penthouse from prime when it first released, did some casino missions but never realised you get 1 mil and an armoured car! That's def my next go to. Yeah, the arcade management console sounds ideal and sounds like an expansion of the nightclub managing all other businesses so I've spawn point at the arcade, check in on businesses and near the casino sounds like a plan.

    Will start an MC soon as well as it's cheap and i can live out my sons of anarchy fantasy :)

    Yeah, saw that alright, you have to visit the store for the 1mil for psplus going forward.

    Can make a fortune from that heist with a little extra with the Elite challenge/Hard Mode etc.


    Managed the elite challenge myself, mostly stealth, made a video of it here if any interest in where the extra loot is etc

    Oh man, I'd been meaning to start having a look back at GTA online. Looking at the rockstar club online I last played it three years ago, and last ranked up Feb of 2017, and last played it three years ago. I've got 400k in the bank.

    Do ye reckon the best plan would be to just get used to the game again and doing odd jobs for a few weeks while the Amazon Prime/Twitch Prime ticks over and then once I have enough to get an office/become a CEO do that and then get cracking on.

    Or becoming a VIP and doing some jobs?

    Might have a read through this and see what I've missed out on.

    Mark, I'd definitely be in for other heists, haven't done doomsday or casino yet.

    Dave, what platform you on? If PlayStation and you have Plus, log in for a free 1 mil and then another 1mil in April and every month until next gen version releases. Should get you the sub to do the latest heist which will have you plenty of money. If not anyone on here on same platform maybe invite you to it, get a nice chunk of money

    Perfect sounds good zero. I haven't done any either except the Cayo one solo. Must invest in an arcade and stuff for the Casino heist.

    Really hoping this gets some new features and dlc in the ps5 version.

    The actors who play Michael and Franklin let slip they might be doing scenes where they give jobs to the player online. Could be them hoping for that but I've a feeling Rockstar gave big plans for the online next gen. They'll have to do something big to justify the same game across 3 gens.


  • Registered Users Posts: 29,549 ✭✭✭✭Zero-Cool


    Thought MC would be cheap as clubhouses are a couple of hundred grand but just saw the businesses you then have to buy are around the 1 mil mark. Will have to do some research on that before deciding which one. Also might wait until Thursday to see what the discounts are in case some business locations go on sale.

    It could simply be that GTA6 is delayed/on hold until 2023/24 so GTA5 with a lick of paint will keep fans quiet (in their eyes) for a bit.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,961 ✭✭✭markcahill1985


    Do you have the bunker? I find that very good and also the vehicle warehouse. I have a couple MC as well but they're just not worth it IMO for what you get back.

    The vehicle warehouse for exporting vehicles is very good. There's a glitch where if you store something like 10 low and 10 medium end cars and don't sell them then every vehicle you source after that will be high end and you can make circa 80k per run.loads of youtube videos on that. I'd stick to that the bunker and the heist and you'll make a fortune fairly quick.

    Nope,i have no businesses but heard the bunker is a nice money maker alright. That's what's getting me at the moment, ton of choices. I'll see what Thursday offers, of they have a cheap business I'm interested in, I'll go for it, if not, will stick to heists maybe until a business sale or splash out on something, not sure.
