Heists have been out for over a week now, and we hope you’re enjoying them. As you might know (if not, take a look at our Heists guide), you can earn special one-time bonuses from Heists, in addition to their regular payouts, by completing certain challenges. The most difficult of these is the Criminal Mastermind Challenge.
Criminal Mastermind builds upon the previous challenges in that you must play through every Heist (including all of the setup missions) in order, with the same team. You also have to play them all on Hard difficulty. One more thing–you have to make it through without anyone on your team dying.
Sound pretty tough? It might be worth it for the reward: a $10,000,000 bonus.
If you’d like to see the Criminal Mastermind Challenge completed, this player recorded his gameplay progress as his team progressed through the challenge. He intends to upload the gameplay in separate parts later on, as well, in case a 7 hour video is a bit much for you.
It’s too bad his other teammates didn’t record their parts as well, but it’s still pretty cool to watch. If you hope to complete the Criminal Mastermind Challenge, here are a few tips to keep in mind:
Practice the Heists beforehand. Although you have to play them in order for the challenge, it doesn’t matter if you’ve played them previously. Therefore, you and your team can make sure you’re well-acquainted with what each mission demands.
If you do not do it in a single sitting, none of your teammates can complete any other Heists in the meantime, or you’ll break the order.
Your team will have to perform the Fleeca Job as two separate groups, and then join up for the first four-player Heist.
If you die, you’ll have to start over from the first Heist. Restarting won’t work.
You can, however, fail a mission. As long as no one dies, you’re fine.
Criminal Mastermind is a tough challenge to complete, but with enough skill and teamwork, it’s definitely possible. Have you completed it? What other tips would you offer to interested players?
Like yesterday, today Rockstar sent out a short Tweet teasing the arrival of GTA Online heists on March 10. This one, also like yesterday’s, included a short teaser trailer to build anticipation. Take a look.
Fans are pleased with what these videos have shown, and the Hydra especially has people excited about the upcoming heists. We aren’t sure if Rockstar intends to send out a new teaser every day until heists launch, but these quick snippets are certainly an effective way to prepare fans.
After so many delays, it’s almost hard to believe heists are almost here. What are you looking forward to the most?
eYeCe Gaming, a Youtube channel devoted to posting interesting videos about Grand Theft Auto V, has just uploaded a new video on the Top 5 Kills in GTA V, from five different players. Check it out.
The top 5 kills shown in this video are: 5. a player who shoots down a jet with a perfectly aimed shot from a grenade launcher, 4. an aerial shot that takes down a jet, again with impressive accuracy, 3. a “sticky bomb slam dunk” performed by a player on a bike while leaping over a building, 2. a solo player who manages to take out four others all trying to kill him at once, and 1. a player in a jet dogfight who stops in midair to let his opponent pass so he can get in a clear shot.
What do you think? If you enjoyed seeing those kills, be sure to visit eYeCe Gaming’s channel, and if you’ve performed a kill you think deserves to be highlighted in a video, you can submit it to him as well.
Chances are good you’ve seen at least one of the popular “Hitler Reacts” videos. This meme takes one of the key scenes from the 2004 movie Der Untergang, or Downfall, and adds subtitles to suggest Hitler is reacting to current news or controversies, usually minor. The concept spread like crazy, and you can find dozens of videos on a variety of topics.
And now you can watch Hitler react to the news that the PC version of GTA V has been delayed until April 14.
What do you think? Did you enjoy it? Fans may not be happy with the latest GTA V delay, but at least they can parody the situation and laugh at it.
You may have heard of React Gaming before, particularly the videos where teenagers were unable to figure out how to play older games. “Elders React” is another one of their video series, and in this latest episode, they put Grand Theft Auto V in the hands of some senior citizens. What do they think of it? Their reactions may surprise you, and they’ll definitely entertain you.
Is that what you expected? Stereotypes suggest older people wouldn’t enjoy a game like GTA V at all, but this video readily disproves that.
After recent accusations that the game causes violent, it’s good to see something like this. Some found it too violent, but many enjoyed it. In the words of one woman who thoroughly enjoyed her GTA V shooting spree, “just remember, this is make-believe.”
If you’re looking for a way to earn some quick cash in GTA Online, here’s a video that may help. Youtube user The Console Gamer has uploaded instructions on where to find a modded Vapid Sandking XL, which can be sold for approximately $17,000 – $19,000, depending on which one spawns. This vehicle can be found in other GTA Online locations, such as Sandy Shores, but this is among the most reliable. This is currently confirmed to work only in the PS4 and Xbox One versions of GTA V.
As the video explains, you should try to find it between 9 AM and 5 PM (0900 hours – 1700 hours if you go by time on the phone), and just keep trying if the military vehicle appears in its place. Since you’re allowed to sell a vehicle once each GTA Online day, or about once every 48 minutes of real time, this is a good way to build up a good supply of money.
Following up on yesterday’s discussion of GTA V fan-created content, we’ve got a new fan-made video to share with you today. Reddit user ShoaltsLion used GTA V to re-create the intro to Boardwalk Empire, a 5-season crime drama.
If you’re interested in seeing just how the GTA V video compares with the original, you can also watch both side by side.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen fans create other scenes in GTA V. For example, we featured a Skyfall reenactment back in March. It’s always cool when fans do this, and the creator of this Boardwalk Empire video has expressed an interest in making a better version once GTA V is released for the PC.
Did you enjoy this? What other scenes would you like to see re-done using GTA V?
We’ve got another crazy glitch to share with you today. You probably know there’s a cheat code that spawns your character in mid-air to send you into free fall, but Youtube user DomisLive has found a glitch that lets you actually walk through the air (and on water).
This works in both GTA V and GTA Online. Check out the video below to learns the steps necessary for this glitch. All you need is a helicopter, an assault rifle, and a knife.
It’s a pretty cool glitch, especially for how simple it is to activate. Fly the helicopter to a certain pool and perform a few specific actions, and suddenly you’re rising into the air. Some fans think it’s great, but others think the advantages it gives you in GTA Online makes it an unfair, game-breaking glitch. What do you think? Either way, you’d better try it fast, in case Rockstar fixes it in the next update.
Last week, GTA V was officially announced for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. We got to see a trailer and some comparison screenshots, but thanks to DigitalFoundry, we can get an even better look at the extent of the visual changes.
This video re-creates the announcement trailer with footage from the PS3 version of the game, and places it beside the PS4 trailer for a comparison. Check it out.
As you can see, the changes go beyond mere polish. The wildlife and more dynamic environments are two aspects that really stand out. What do you think?
Fans have done some pretty creative things in GTA V, as we’ve shown in the past. Today we’ve got another interesting GTA V video to share. Youtube user EV niconico has used the game to create an imitation of the Red Band trailer for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Check it out!
