Last night I slammed down $1M for my office in the Maze Bank West on Red Desert Ave, parked up the V out front and settled into the office. I didn't have enough to buy a Warehouse, so I went out alone to Headhunt and Sightsee until I pipped over that 250k threshold.
Buzzing around in Headhunter is a lot of fun: zooming between skyscrapers, popping up over buildings, trying to shoot people inside car parks without getting out of the attack helicopter, lots of chuckles. I managed to plough into a building a couple of times but only when getting cocky. DON'T TRUST MY LANDING, LADS!
Sightseer is quite cool too, tucking the helicopter down onto the most precarious places to snatch the briefcase. I doubt it is any fun with friends.
Once I had collected just enough beans, I beamed back into the public session to buy the Convenience Store Lockup in Rancho. The cheapest, most shoddy warehouse with the worrying scent of ammonia and yesterday's MacDonalds. It left me with only $352 in my pocket, $2000 being the price for a single crate. #headdesk
Rather than bounce into a private session for more VIP work, I elected to try a Sightseer in the public session. Fortune does indeed favour the bold as the cases were all north of Blaine County and Mount Chilliad! With the player base all fighting it out with headshots in the city, I had discovered exceptional luck. Blasting back to the office, I bought my singular crate of illegal ivory, picked it up in an alleyway "IT'S A TRAP!", roared the truck across the city largely ignored and delivered it at some speed to the Convenience Store Lockup. My heart was pounding. No backup, I'd put down $2000 for it. I've not tried a sale yet but I imagine that will be more tense.
Can a single person collect multiple crates?
Would I need to do them one-by-one, back and forth? Am I stuck with just getting one crate while I don't have any associates?
I'm glad that I have found a pottering-around way of playing GTA V.
