Fellas want quick cash do Violent Duct, No Hay Bronco from Gerald. Want to repeat mission? Click Y (like) then click RT soon after. Just hit up gun store before mission. Gun stores are nearby. Get $9,000 each time. Violent Duct is the one you want tho because its a short mission. 2-3mins max.

Another mission with a huge payout is Ron's Base Invaders. $25,000. Need to fly a plane into the military base and blow up 3 Jets. Need explosives.

Rinse and repeat. I went from $70k to $104k in just ~15 minutes.

Tried it and the store is locked after the 3rd or 4th holdup. Plus I dont like the fact it throws me into a public lobby. I start off with a closed lobby for two hold ups then the third time? Public. Cant do them especially when I have constant bounties on my head.

Ah, it must be the bounties preventing you from doing it.
I robbed the same store for $50k+, ended up getting killed by a good Samaritan I wasn't paying attention to, respawned near a completely different gas station and then robbed that one until I got $205k.
I bought my apartment.

Anybody want to play with me on PS3? Username is Manual_Required.

I've really been enjoying the radio satire lately. I just heard one about how Americans don't get soccer because it isn't 75% commercials and one about socialized healthcare which were pretty funny. Stuff like that is one of my favorite things about the GTA games.

My character got deleted. I was rank 16, had that $205k apartment, and countless hours of gameplay. All for nothing.

Add me to the list of deleted characters.

Close to level 30 (inches) and $490,000+ in cash. Gone!

I read that your character is not actually deleted when it makes you build a new one to play online. It's just the cloud servers acting up, and they just can't retrieve your player info/stats. It's only deleted if you overwrite your original character which happens when you create a new one.

So don't make a new character if it asks you to. Just give it a while and try again when the servers are up if you don't want to lose your character. Hope that made sense.

I dont think he would have taken that money anyway. Think you drop only $100. Now when you carry more than $5,000? I dont know how that works. I'll assume whatever you have over that amount is dropped? Unsure.

Funny nonetheless. Thats why I dont play in public lobbies.

You're correct, you only drop the money if it's over $5,000. If you're carrying under $5,000, you drop $100.

Thanks. I've yet to come across someone who carried over $5,000 and I took it. I would love to be a fly on that persons wall whom it has happened too.

I haven't either. I immediately deposit the money if I have over 5k on me. You basically have to be lucky enough to run into someone that just finished a mission and gun him down.

I haven't played the game since my character got deleted because I am under the impression that I might be able to get dude back once the cloud b.s is fixed.

I have a question, though:

Have you guys ever encountered anyone doing anything nice during the public free roam?
Whether it be helping you get your stolen car back or just giving you a ride around the town, whatever. Anyone?
