Heists

156 posts in this topic

I'm really looking forward to the heists, but do you think they will also include smaller scale 'heists' like just plain old roberries? Anyone who's played Mafia II- I hope Ammunation is like the gun shops, because it was actually fun to kill the guy in there, rob the register and loot the ammo and guns on display-

Other things that don't include preparation like walking down the street and robbing a convenience store at gunpoint might be fun

From the CVG map. No evidence of it, seems they're just guessing.

I see.. Let's assume there's no casino in the game then, it's just all guesses and speculations with those guys ;)

Well, they did actually see 30+ minutes of real gameplay, they must've seen something that looks like a casino.

The never mentioned it in their preview. I think it is just a wild guess.

I had thought I'd seen a casino looking building in Trevor's trailer. Upon further inspection it was the "Whirligig Theater." So still only speculation on the casino. But since gambling is only legal on Native American reservations (outside of Nevada), I think it's safe to further speculate that if there is a casino, there will be the first GTA Injun reservation.

My guess would be that you'd start small and work your way up. It would be pretty good to hold up a store for cash though. Maybe even bust open an ATM.

Or the ATM from the first TPB movie, and Bubbles glorious line "Delicate Ricky, delicate... Thats blue dye under pressure! That whore blows and we all look like those blue, bald headed dicks that beat the drums."

A train heist would be pretty cool, almost like that mission in SA. You start out as Franklin driving the bike next to the train, with Trevor on the back. Then eventually you swap to Trevor and get on the train, use your 1337 mechanic skills to break into the cargo, then swap to Michael in a helicopter and pick up Trevor. I'd like to see something like that, since it also provides us with equal play of each character.

Probably identical, or near-identical.

Idk though.. I think they may play out the same way sometimes, but the way the previews have described the heists, Rockstar seems to have made it possible to customize the planning of the heists to achieve our outcome of choice.. Also the way we set up the missions (ex: use a semi truck as getaway vehicle vs. infernus?). Another way they may differ is how we decide to take our swing at them (ex: charge in the front door, guns drawn vs. parachute onto the building and sneak in through the roof?)

Had to post this.. :clap: Looks like a potential bank heist, though they all seem pretty leisurely about the situation.. Could be the planning phase?

I was referring to the structure. Casing, planning, social engineering perhaps, then execution.

Do you think they will include even one casino in the game to me it would be great to steal the casino safe. Like in Ocean Eleven.

Yes, most likely.

I watched Oceans Eleven last night. 89 days...

I do hope the heists could increase in complexity as the game goes on. Ie. 3-4 components in the first couple of heists right up to 10+ components to set up the last couple of heists.

What I would find completely badass would be the ability to hire a cargo plane and have it fly above the target building and everyone just jumping out and parachuting onto its roof. Btw does anyone have an idea as to how the reward system is gonna work. By that I mean once you're in the safe do you hold a button and choose how much cash you want to loot or is it pre-determined?

It probably has to do with the expertise of your crew the more experienced the more loot you pull in. A great game for reference would be the Godfather part 2 check out the gameplay on youtube.

I was listening to the radio today and the station was interviewing an author who wrote a novel about a fictional heist in a rural West Australian gold mine. That got me wishing... :-)
