Yes, you can profit off of these missions. What you can do is when Lester gives you a mission, he normally says something stock related. The most obvious of which are assassination missions against CEO's. Invest in the opposing companies stock! Once he says something stock related, cancel the mission (if you want ALL characters to invest) and make that stock ...

According to this thread The problem lies in the loading and unloading of vehicle models. Apparently, each vehicle is so detailed that the system can only afford to have a small number of models on tap. This "reserve" of models changes based on your vehicle, location, and time. Vehicle models are also loaded and unloaded each time the view is ...

Vehicle Requirements: Since Grand Theft Auto IV, Prostitutes have had specific requirements for cars that they can do their "magic" in. They cannot be picked up in the following vehicles: Emergency Vehicles Bikes (for obvious reasons) Buses Some vehicles are restricted due to size, as it can be heard that "I bet you're flexible, but not in here," or "I ...

According to the official GTA 5 Strategy Guide, here is a comprehensive list: Stamina: this skill is increased by 1% for every 17 meters (18 yards) ran, every minute swam, every minute cycled. Participating in triathlons is a great way to increase this ability. Shooting: this is increased quicker by landing hits on enemies, scoring headshots and ...

Head immediately for the nearest train track then find the nearest tunnel. They show on the map as light grey lines. Tunnels show as a darker grey. The helicopters can't find you in tunnels and in most cases if you get a good run down the tracks you'll have lost the cars too. On the off chance a cop car does make it into the tunnel with you it shouldn't be ...

A full day in GTA 5 takes 48 minutes real time. One hour takes 2 minutes. Game time stops when pausing, will automatically advance when starting some missions and using a bed to save will advance game time by 6 hours (Michael), 8 hours (Franklin) or 12 hours (Trevor). Note: Game time does not stop when pausing in GTA Online.

The Truffade Adder has a stock speed of "8.6" - which makes it the fastest car in GTA V. However I prefer the Overflod Entity XF as it has significantly better acceleration and traction - which matters more than top speed IMO. Both cars will occasionally spawn in the game world (generally around the richer areas of Los Santos) but if you do steal one you ...

I haven't had much luck trying to destroy assets to affect stock prices either. But here's what's been working for me so far. It's not a guaranteed quick-billion but over time you'll get there. Invest in Debonaire! The stock price for Debonaire consistently fluctuates between around 4.8 and 7.4 (at least from what I've seen in my ~60 hours of story mode ...

Bring up your phone (UP on D-PAD or ↑ on Keyboard) and click the option "Quick Save": You can also save by sleeping in a bed.

While I cant find any official sources I'm going to take a stab at it. The short answer is that there is no answer. Here is how it works; you drive into a street and the game decides there should be pedestrians there. It spawns ten people with randomized clothes. You drive past them all and when gone far enough the game simply deletes them again. This is ...

If you park a car in the garage, it will be saved there. Your standard car will always be available nearby if it is not in the garage. Parking in the garage will save that car and you can access there unless you left it somewhere else. Taken from the manual: Player characters can own any vehicle in [GTA V] as long they have appropriate storage for it. ...

You can easily check on how many “open” missions your three characters have by pressing and holding the down button on the D-pad. When the radial character switch interface appears, you’ll usually notice a number over each character portrait. This number denotes how many missions the character hasn’t yet started; if there’s no number, there are no ...

well, the answer is yes and no. The YES part: You can "shoot the fuel tank" The NO part: The car will not blow up instantly as in GTA:SA(never played 4). It will instead create a gas trail that can be ignited IGN has recently published a list of 100 Little Things in GTA 5 That Will Blow Your Mind and #64 says: 64) Shooting a car’s gas tank will ...

Sorry I disagree with the chosen answer there are cameo appearances and easter eggs from previous games. Well there are cameo appearances from GTA IV game none from games before that but there are easter eggs from throughout the GTA Universe. Characters that appear include : San Andreas Characters OG Loc - Doesn't make an appears but there are references ...

Okay, the good news is it seems that you get full access after the second mission (Franklin and Lamar) - which was under 30 minutes of gameplay for me. After the mission I stole the nearest car and circumnavigated the game map. I didn't come across any barriers at all. Or ate least barriers I could find. Here's the kicker - it took me 40 minutes to ...

No, the only form of gambling in GTA V is betting on the stock market. However, the casino says "Opening soon" and the other day, while in a helicopter I found a horse/greyhound racing track, so it's possible that these may be added with DLC.

It seems to be related with the Peyote Plant: One new feature in the updated version of that Rockstar has kept quiet about is the addition of peyote plant collectibles, which when consumed send you through a hallucinatory trip into the body of a random animal! Some peyote plants turn you into a bird, whereas others transform you into four-legged or ...

It seems that the assassination missions Lester gives to Franklin, beginning after the first heist, are the most obvious scripted occurances of stock market fluctuation. Most of these affect LCN, but some are companies on BAWSAQ. Before each mission, invest in the target's competitor, ideally with multiple characters. The missions are as follows: Hotel ...

I've just discovered and trawled through this helpful site which lists all of the GTA5 vehicles: https://googledrive.com/host/0B-Q7WnzcPvLtLVVoM3otTVlnOFE/all.htm It looks like the faster 4 seater is the Ubermacht Oracle 1 - with a speed of "8.1" and an acceleration of "6.8". Although there are many cars with a speed of "8.0" (but not as good acceleration). ...

While you can add the GTAV.exe file as a non-steam game shortcut, it will just be a shortcut. To get the proper steam version, you will have to buy it either from Steam, or buy a Steam key from a third party reseller (most, however, don't sell steam keys for GTA V). If you buy the Steam version, you can also play it as the social club version without ...

You can cycle through all of your weapons by tapping tab, or scrolling your mousewheel. It is also possible to use the number buttons (1,2,3 etc.) to cycle through weapons. If for example, "1" is pistols, you can cycle through all of your pistols by tapping 1 multiple times. There is one more way, the one I think is the best, to cycle through your ...

The Blue radius is the noise of your footsteps, your character's voice, or weapons. It shows the radius of the sound travel. If a character that can detect you is in that radius you will be caught.

Currently, there's no easy way like the spaceship parts and letter fragments tracked on rockstar social club. But you can always go medieval and use a physical solution. I found the fold-out map included with in the game box to be pretty useful for this. And once I've finished (almost there!) it'll make a cool (geeky) piece of art to hang in the media room. ...

According to Wikia it is possible: Instead of only the ambulance's passenger, both paramedics will now tend to the injured. Due to the absence of the injury system, the revival attempt has been made simpler. Now, the change of revival is simply random. If the paramedics are not successful in reviving the deceased, they will now stand around the body while ...

You cannot censor GTA V "in-game". Maybe you can use a mod, for example Family Friendly Free Roaming if you want to let your kids play this game. But remember this game is not for kids, it has PEGI 18.

As far as I know, this has been (together with the romance part) removed from the game. Hanging out with your friends is just a way to do the 'pastime activities' which also count towards your 100% checklist. But they can also be done alone. And it's a way to get some more back-story through the dialogue. (Of course you standard perks train while hanging ...
