Further Adventures in Finance and Felony: How to Become a Criminal Kingpin

Posted on June 27 2016, 10:35am | Author: R* M | Filed Under: Games

Further Adventures in Finance and Felony adds a whole new level of gameplay to the world of GTA Online, as you buy and sell contraband to expand your empire across Los Santos. This two-part series will dive into the finer points, to help you become the ultimate criminal kingpin and unstoppable CEO.


Choose from four different office buildings, each with a range of interchangeable décor. 

OFFICE SPACE
You’ll need to cover the basics before you can start rolling in the profit - most important of all is buying an Office, which gives access to CEO status and acts as the center of all your illicit operations. Access the Dynasty 8 Executive site on your iFruit phone and purchase one of four variously priced Office spaces across Los Santos. Personalize with a range of décor options and your own Organization name, and select from optional amenities including: a Safe to watch your cash grow, an Accommodation Area (for naps and a change of clothes if you’re working late), and a Gun Locker to allow you to customize your weapon loadout before you go on the job. 

Inside your office, you'll also find a few extra amenities to help you with your business: a Boardroom Table equipped with a 3D map of all potential Warehouse locations (green markers indicate owned warehouses, red markers for those still for sale); a big screen entertainment system featuring the Degenatron multiplayer classic, "Don't Cross The Line", and the SecuroServ computer from which you’ll run new business ventures.

Your office also comes with an Executive Assistant – they’ll keep you up-to-date with Organization business as well as taking care of logistics for you, like arranging for your personal or Pegasus vehicles to be ready and waiting outside, recovering an impounded car, arranging a heli pickup for fast travel back to the office, or even refilling your snacks for free.


Select Warehouse size and location based on your strategy – larger Warehouses suit rapid growth, while smaller Warehouses help build Organizations from the ground up.

BECOMING CEO & WAREHOUSE OPERATIONS
Once you own an Office, register as CEO in the SecuroServ menu via your Player Interaction menu, or simply walk on over to your desktop and register at login. Unlike VIPs, there are zero bank balance requirements and no time limits or restrictions on how long you can be CEO, or how long you can wait before becoming CEO again.

Running a criminal enterprise takes a network of resources, not the least of which includes Warehouses for storing ill-gotten goods. Warehouses come in small, medium and large sizes, and you can own up to five at a time; neither Warehouses nor Offices count towards your limit on personal Property ownership. Before purchasing a Warehouse, try to select one that best suits your needs, including location and size. As with Offices, you can trade in Warehouses at any time for new ones of equal or larger size. 

Warehouses also include Workbenches, to upgrade designated vehicles used during Special Cargo missions with enhancements such as armor and homing missile jammers.


Approach Buy missions carefully – not every deal will go according to plan.

BUYING SPECIAL CARGO 
Special Cargo Buy missions are dangerous, multi-part missions that call for a coordinated team of Associates to complete successfully. Buy missions range in scope and size, from police stings to high-speed pursuits, helicopter ambushes and more. There are three sizes of shipment that can be purchased: 1 crate, 2 crates, or 3 crates. Larger shipments have increased difficulty and may require more Associates. More crates means greater risk and more money on the line, but allows you to fill your warehouse quickly, receiving better offers from potential buyers sooner.  

Not every deal will go according to plan; you will be exposed to Los Santos gangs, the LSPD, rival player Organizations, and other threats.  Plan your mission timing carefully, know your Warehouse locations, make sure that you've hired skilled Associates to handle the size of the shipment (remember, one player can carry one crate at a time), keep your phone contacts and CEO abilities on-hand, and perhaps most of all, understand risk-reward scenarios.

Once you take hold of a crate, be prepared for anything - pay close attention to your Assistant, as you'll get notified of anything that goes sideways. You'll only have a finite amount of time to complete delivery, and the time before you are blipped to the session is shorter when buying more crates. So like any streamlined organization: efficiency is your friend.

After completing several Buy missions, CEOs may be given the option to attempt a Special Item mission; Special Items are extremely valuable merchandise that sells for more than traditional cargo. These missions feature only 1 crate that must be secured against extreme resistance...


Use the Gun Locker to drop and add the necessary tools before going on a Buy or Sell job.

SELLING SPECIAL CARGO 
When the time comes to sell, you can do so via the laptop located in the relevant Warehouse. You'll have up to three offers to choose from based on your current inventory level, and a fourth Special item buyer will also be in the mix if you own any Special items. Sell missions are a CEO’s opportunity to cash-in on their hard-earned supply, but also come with risk-reward considerations; selling larger amounts will garner interest from wealthier buyers, but also runs a higher risk. Deliveries are exposed to threats throughout Los Santos, and failure to safely deliver cargo can eat into your profits. 

Maximize your Special Cargo value by timing the sale of your inventory. Stockpiling cargo can result in interest from wealthier buyers, however, Warehouses stocked with valuable cargo won’t stay a secret for long – beware of attacks from resident gangs of Los Santos attempting to steal a slice of your pie.

Slowly filing up a large Warehouse one crate at a time is the most profitable method as your initial outlay is lower, but it is not the most time-efficient. Buying large shipments will fill your Warehouse three times faster, but at a higher cost; make an executive decision based on whichever method suits your leadership. Also of note: the more players in session, the higher the risk, but the greater the delivery bonus will be when selling your goods.

You will receive your cash payout once all crates arrive at their destination. 
 
FAQ
I just want to be CEO; why should I become an Associate?

In addition to a periodically paid base salary, Associates will receive benefits such as wage bonuses for consecutive successful Cargo Missions, increased RP and health regeneration when inside the radius of a CEO.

How do other players disrupt my business operations?
After an Organization collects Special Cargo in a Buy mission, or embarks to sell it on a Sell mission, a global signal revealing your Special Cargo’s location will be sent out to all rival Organizations and players in the session. The size of shipment will affect the delay on this timer. Rival Organizations and other players have something to gain from destroying your Special Cargo, watch out for them at all times.

Can I still be involved in Special Cargo Missions if I’m not part of an Organization?
Players not part of an Organization who are in Freemode can get involved in Special Cargo Missions; these players will be notified of an Organizations’ ongoing Special Cargo Mission by a red crate blip appearing on their map. Once this blip has appeared, this means that an Organization has collected a Special Cargo crate, and is attempting to deliver it to their Warehouse or sell it to a buyer. Other players and rival Organizations off-mission can then choose to attack the crate holders and be rewarded with ammo, cash and RP for destroying the Special Cargo.

Why can’t we do Buy/Sell missions in a private session?
Succeeding as a CEO requires navigating the risks and rewards of the ruthless Los Santos free market – where everyone is out to snipe at your latest venture – so Buy and Sell missions were designed specifically for trade in public sessions. Keep in mind that more players in your session means a bigger bonus for successful sale of Special Cargo, while Associates receive wage increases for completing consecutive Buy or Sell missions with the same CEO. If you're concerned other players are hanging about your Warehouse or Office – pick the right time to sell, make sure you have Associates and get them to clear out players who are stalking you or waiting for you to execute a deal. Taking your team off the grid with the Ghost Organization ability and exiting via the rooftop helipad where possible are also solid strategies.

Why can’t I start another Buy / Sell Cargo Mission?
There is a 5-minute cooldown on completing a Buy Cargo Mission, and a 30-minute cooldown after completing a Sell Cargo Mission per Warehouse; if one Warehouse has been sold from recently, you can still choose to sell from another.

What can I do if an Organization member is causing me trouble?
CEOs can dismiss members through the management section of the Personal Interactions Menu. Unfortunately, CEOs cannot dismiss members during Special Cargo Missions; if an Associate has deliberately destroyed the Special Cargo during a Sell Mission, the CEO has an option to punish the Associate by terminating them from the Organization, and blocking them from being a CEO or Associate for 30 mins.

GTA Online Power Play: Playback by the GTA Online Community

Posted on June 23 2016, 10:54am | Author: R*E | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Whether you're Beasted, Zoned or Doped, the frenetic nature of Power Play has already produced some incredible moments since its addition to GTA Online this week. Captured on camera by members of the GTA Online community, we've picked out some of the most replay-worthy thrills, kills and spills for you below:



Müz and the REBL Crew unleash the Beast in cinematic style with a slick montage of intense Power Play action. Dom's "Living in America," which can be heard on Radio Mirror Park, is the perfect accompaniment to a bit of the ultraviolence by Müz and company.

Our friend, Brooklyn's own GTAFIVEONLINE, racks up a bloody kill against gtadoll for The Toxic Pests during some well-earned yard time at Bolingbroke Penitentiary.

Sometimes, you just know when your time is up; instead of burying his head in the sand, ic2archery gracefully accepts the inevitable as a Beasted Killer Bug moves in for the kill.



Learning to use the new power-ups effectively is key to victory - a notion expertly demonstrated by FxChannel Gaming, as he makes the most of his Zoned and Beasted moments.

makimaki_3333 proudly displays The Boars' team colors during an extreme battle against The Cocks.

They say that all good things must come to an end; KCs Notorious learned this the hard way, when his Beasted power-up ran out mid-jump, setting him up for a bite of humble pie with a side of concrete.

The Beast's super jump and blistering speed abilities can be a deadly combo, especially in the right hands. The guys at long-running fan channel GTA Series Videos show us how it's done, by athletically outmaneuvering a Minigun before going in for the kill.

Watch plenty of adrenaline-pumping rounds of Power Play during our official Rockstar live stream, this Friday at 5pm ET on the official Rockstar YouTube and Twitch channels. As always, if you've got any awesome gameplay GIFs or Rockstar Editor clips you'd like to send us, be sure to hit us up via Mouthoff, or share them in the comments below.

GTA Online: Power Play and Grotti X80 Proto Now Available

Posted on June 21 2016, 1:21pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

In Power Play, today's new update to Grand Theft Auto Online on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, power-ups change the rules of urban warfare - giving players the chance to boost themselves and their allies with special abilities, or even screw with their opponents in pursuit of ultimate victory.
 
The effects of these six power-ups are temporary and will need to be timed wisely. Power-ups include:

Beasted: Transform into the Beast and use special powers like invisibility, super jump, and super strength. 
Zoned: Slow down time for all players, giving snipers a tactical advantage over exposed enemies. 
Doped: Dull your enemy's senses with a trippy green haze; they’ll never see that flank coming...
Raging: Unleash a rampage with your entire team by inflicting increased damage while taking reduced damage. 
Flipped: Scramble your opponents by picking up Flipped, temporarily inverting all enemy camera controls and mixing team chat to truly get in their heads.
Dark: Take your team off the grid for well-timed sneak attacks.

Each player can use one power up at a time, but layers of strategy exist through stacking power-ups with other teammates, or triggering power-ups to counteract enemy team advantages. Play this new Adversary Mode now via the Jobs menu, or grab your best gunmen and battlefield tacticians to maximize 2X GTA$ and RP in the Power Play Playlist all week long.

You can also bookmark the three Power Play Jobs here:
Power Play I (Aircraft Carrier) | Power Play II (Vespucci Beach) | Power Play III (Bolingbroke Prison)
 
NEW SUPERCAR: THE GROTTI X80 PROTO
 
Today's update also features the addition of the blazing-fast Grotti X80 Proto to the Supercar roster at Legendary Motorsport. The space-age, low-profile body harnesses a beastly engine, making for a finely tuned machine ready for dominance – especially handy when needing to make Special Cargo Deliveries in a hurry. Escaping wanted levels has never looked so good.

 

DOUBLE GTA$ AND RP POWER PLAY PLAYLIST, UNLOCKABLE GROTTI TEE AND MORE

Celebrate Power Play Week and grab double GTA$ and RP in the all-new Power Play Playlist, available to access directly from the GTAV loading screen (and the Playlists section of the GTA Online pause menu) through June 27.

It's time to get the public relations arm of your GTA Online Organization spinning with a piece of cinematic propaganda to play at the AGM and distribute to shareholders and partners. And while cheery stock footage of families waving and co-workers shaking hands may be the traditional approach for such corporate videos, we're looking for a more accurate representation of the types of aggressive venture capitalism your enterprise specializes in. We’ve got some slick prizes fit for any underworld boss to feature in his or her Executive penthouse, so gather your trusted staff and show us what your Organization is made of.

THE CREATIVE BRIEF

Remember that you must feature content from GTA Online: Further Adventures in Finance and Felony and/or Executives and Other Criminals in addition to meeting the other requirements detailed below.

As if that wasn't enough, the winning director will also be calling the shots for their next epic from the comfort of a customized director's chair, bearing the winner's Social Club ID and the Rockstar Editor logo. Finally, the ultra-rare and exclusive GTAV Varsity Jacket will be yours to wear on set or on location. It also will be customized with your Social Club ID on a special custom patch confirming your status as an award-winning Rockstar Editor auteur.

Hit the jump below for the latest schedule, broken down by in-game radio station, and keep an eye out as we'll be updating this post with more dates as they're announced.

GTA Online: Further Adventures in Finance and Felony Now Available

Posted on June 7 2016, 7:45am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

Continue your mission to become the ultimate criminal kingpin of Los Santos and Blaine County in GTA Online: Further Adventures in Finance and Felony, now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. As CEO, you'll enjoy all the special abilities of being a VIP, plus access to a whole new frontier of black market opportunities with SecuroServ’s patented Special Cargo Network, allowing you to buy and sell illegal goods across a city-wide empire.

THE EXECUTIVE SUITE
To get your operation up and running, you'll need an executive office fitting the title along with a skillful team of hired Associates. Dynasty 8 Executive Realty, in partnership with SecuroServ, now have a new line of deluxe office suites specifically for the motivated career criminal. These masterpieces in executive design come with a full-time assistant, helipad, boardroom, Don’t Cross the Line arcade game, and optional storage space like the Gun Locker, allowing you to personalize your perfect weapon loadout before you go on the job.

An executive office also includes private access to the SecuroServ Special Cargo Network, which you’ll use to invest in Warehouses and traffic rare and exotic product throughout the city. Warehouses store all Special Cargo and storage space is valuable; manage your inventory wisely and maximize your margins by selling when the prices are right.


Run dangerous, multi-part Buy Missions with your team of Associates to store and stockpile Special Cargo.

BUY AND SELL SPECIAL CARGO 
Buy missions require skill from a coordinated team of Associates to successfully pull off. Missions are grouped into three categories that increase in difficulty based on how many crates of contraband you intend to purchase and how much risk you are willing to take on. With greater risks – whether from the FIB, LSPD or rival player Organizations – come greater rewards. 


Manage your inventory carefully from Small, Medium and Large Warehouses. Overstocked warehouses with lucrative goods won’t stay secret for long...

Accumulating inventory will drive demand in the market. When the time comes to sell, you’ll have various offers to choose from based on your inventory. Sell missions require constant vigilance; keep your eyes peeled as the job isn’t over until all of your Cargo is safely transported, and destroyed Cargo can eat into your profits.

DEFEND YOUR WAREHOUSE
Major players attract attention and warehouses stocked with high volumes of valuable goods won’t stay secret for long. Act quickly to avoid losing a percentage of your Special Cargo in surprise attacks from resident gangs of Los Santos.


Defend your ground – gang members run counter operations with full frontal attacks and raids from back alleys.

NEW VIP WORK & CHALLENGES
CEOs will enjoy all of the perks of being a VIP, including access to new sources of illicit funds and challenges.

VIP Work

  • Headhunter: Assassinate key targets across the map against the clock.
  • Airfreight: Liberate some valuable cargo from its armed guard and fly it to safety.
  • Haulage: Be the first to deliver a trailer full of tax-exempt merchandise to its wrongful owner.

VIP Challenges

  • Cashing Out: Be the pack leader in the latest wave of ATM fraud to hit the streets of Los Santos.
  • Salvage: Compete to retrieve the most lost cargo from the ocean floor. 


Work alongside your fellow bodyguards to defend a Cargobob against player rivals and the LSPD in Airfreight.

NEW VEHICLES, ATTIRE & WEAPON ATTACHMENTS
Do you have a taste for the brutally fast, the brutally efficient or the just plain brutal?  Whatever your preference, the latest wave of NEW transport options is bound to hit your sweet spot. From the monstrous MTL Brickade available at Warstock Cache & Carry and menacing Bravado Rumpo Custom from Southern San Andreas Autos, to the new generation of Super and Sports cars now in stock at Legendary Motorsport like the Pegassi Reaper, Vapid FMJ, Grotti Bestia GTS and Enus Windsor Drop, to the luxurious and speedy Buckingham Nimbus and Volatus from Elitas Travel and even the hulking Tug available on order from DockTease, getting from A to B has never looked and felt this good.

Previously exclusive VIP and bodyguard clothing plus all-new SecuroServ branded merchandise are also hitting the clothing racks in Los Santos. Whether you want your first impression to be a sophisticated crime lord or a gorilla for hire, there’s something just right for you. And nothing wrecks an otherwise solid Special Cargo mission like running short on ammo. Unleash a barrage of bullets from a range of weapons by grabbing Drum & Box Magazine attachments from your local Ammu-Nation.

NEW TRADING PLACES ADVERSARY MODE
In the land of the Haves and the Have-Nots, this Adversary Mode is your chance to engage in some aggressive social climbing. The Winners team is destined for success, the Losers team is doomed to fail, and there’s only one way to move between the two: ruthlessly murder a Winner and take their place.

EVENT WEEK BONUSES (JUNE 7TH - 13TH)

Tilt Shift by ehmaysi

This project is just one in a series of on-going installments in ehmaysi's 52 Weeks, 52 Videos project, described as "a year-long project to keep the content coming."

GTA London 1969 Cover by SquidPhysics

Master instrumentalist (and occasional rapper) SquidPhysics returns once again to show off his smashing version of the London-based GTA classic. On this track, he enlists the talent of vocalist NiamHanlon for added authenticity. Also, in case you missed it, his recent cover of the GTA2 theme is a bit of melodic nostalgia not to be missed.


GTA Vice City - Pet Stuffers from Simon Tibbs

Whether your favorite commercial on Grand Theft Auto: Vice City was Yuppie and the Alien or Rusty Brown's Ring Donuts, you're sure to enjoy Simon Tibbs' animated take on an Emotion 98.3 staple. According to Simon, Pets Stuffers is his all-time favorite GTA radio ad and he utilized After Effects, Illustrator and a little Cinema 4D to create this spot-on visual accompaniment.


K.I.A - GTA V Rockstar Editor by BloodLust180

Fans of Bloodlust180's previously featured video M.I.A will love the follow up in the 'Paint It Black' series.

VICE CITY: Keep Your Friends Close - First Teaser by Majami Hiroz: Welcome to the '80s

Video creator Majami Hiroz got in touch with us via Mouthoff to share this awesome First Teaser for their forthcoming animated series. "Keep Your Friends Close" uses stop motion techniques to animate the Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Kubrick Set into a flawless vignette, backed up appropriately by a brilliant 80s soundtrack. If you've missed the earlier Announcement Teaser, don't forget to check it out for another sneak peek of what's to come.


The Doe by _-Chy-_

Employing the scenic vistas and rolling hills of Los Santos and Blaine County as the backdrop for this lushly shot piece, video director Chy tells the story of a doe's journey across dangerous terrain to honor a friend's memory. Chy also includes a special message in the video description to viewers that's worth a read.
