A player’s Mental State will no longer increase when killing hostile mercenaries. Also, the increase rate for killing Cops who are chasing the player as a result of being wanted has been reduced.

That I'm glad about. Was doing the award for duration with a 5 star level and every time I tried and kept killing cops at the end I was always red

Low end apartments! Finally I can live in a shack and hunt lonely wanderers around the airstrip.

I'm glad of the DLC and can't wait to try out the monster truck. Only decision now is what vehicle to drop for it. Also happy to see that they are trying to fix the glitches and exploits.

You don't need to drop any vehicles for the Monster Truck its stored as a Pegasus Vehicle and doesn't go in your garage

I should have read the notes, thanks for letting me know.


Know that I have had a look at the notes, I am hoping that the fireworks are like the Gusenberg Sweeper where you can buy it during the period but once bought you can continue to use it by buying ammo for it. I hope that this is the case that way I can use them whenever I want. Fireworks all year round lol, imagine every time you go into a public lobby some idiot has fireworks going off all the time. Would like to be up in a helicopter and see fireworks exploding all around me, maybe even have the fireworks damaging or making the helicopter explode.


The monster truck can't be modded is a little bit disappointing. I hope it comes with the Patriot Tyre smoke. Other decisions to make is what vehicles to put the Patriot Tyre smoke as it is limited time offer to buy. At the moment I have crew smoke on all my cars, and it is pretty expensive if I was replace all 20 vehicles with Patriot Smoke only to decide to bring back my crew tyre smoke.


Instead of alternating smoke, I would have liked it to have all 3 colours at the same time. It may not be as impressive as I first thought when I read it.

I've been getting missions from Lester that I hadn't seen before; He messages everyone in the lobby and if you accept his text, a NPC is highlighted on the map and everyone can kill the NPC for a bounty! :confused:

Also, when I call Pegasus for my tank; the arseholes leave it all the way up at the Army base, every time: anyone else having this problem?

And another Also, Everything seems so bloody expensive, I've bankrupted my myself just buying the clothes/weapons on my male character, now I need to figure out how the hell to make a bit of cash so I can equip my female character, before R* take everything away (I've not even looked at the Monster Truckk and Masks yet)! :(

I did exactly the same i bought all the clothes from the hipster dlc and this dlc and also the new weapons which are pointless and ridiculously expensive now i have like $40000 left and can't afford anything, i wanted the truck but its over $700000 so i have no chance in making that in the next few days :(

Now i'm broke!

Edit: I just read the official post on R* newswire...

"This special seasonal content will be available to redeem in-game until Mid-July (we will announce a specific redemption expiration date soon)."

so at least i may be able to save up for the truck :)

Sounds good cause I'm also like 200k short to get the awesome monster truck!

LeEk MuNcHeR 07-01-2014 04:06 PM

I'm confused, does this mean you can have the monster truck free?

How you come up with that idea!? The Liberator is for sale on the WARSTOCK website for $742,014 (weird pricing).

Great now I'm 500k short cause I just bought all of the new masks, gotta have them in you collection!

Ashleyc 07-01-2014 04:31 PM

Well, i'll hold my hands up and say I was completely wrong on this, I really didn't think they'd release new stuff so soon after Hipster. Not that i'm going to be buying anything, i've only just bought the Zentorno and it's going to be a long time before I get that fully modded.

Its $7/4/2014 as in July 4 2014 (independence day) ;)

I thinks its way too much i thought it would be about $250,000 although i think most of the stuff is way overpriced i mean $65,000 for a firework launcher the novelty will wear off after a couple of uses i wish i could return it lol

Don't forget the masks, waaay too much but I still bought them. I'll leave the Liberator as last object on my list.

No, its $742,014


The truck is awesome, it has strong armour and can drive up a vertical wall, although only for a short bit and then you roll over half the time like a dog. It runs over cars easily and the larger vehicles it knocks them over without a problem.


The Patriot Smoke is not at all good in my opinion. You have Red for a couple of seconds then white and then blue. Unless you have the brake and burn your tyres you won't get to see all three colours when setting off because you can't spin the tyres long enough to get all three colours going. I tried getting slides going, but when the slide breaks it resets and starts at red again, so I can sometimes get red and then white but not blue. Maybe the muscle cars would be better especially the ratloader for getting long slides.


I really hope I can keep my fireworks stocked up after the event is over because that maybe one of my favourite weapons. Pricey at around $59k for the launcher and $1.2k for 2 fireworks, BUT I shot one at a car and it knocked the car on 2 wheels onto its side for a second. I then fired one at some AI pedestrians and it killed them easily. I can see people going around in online lobbies trying to kill each other with the firework launcher. I think R* missed a trick with this, because if they had a special firework that unlocks when you kill a few hundred people, not AI, then many of us would be trying to unlock it and have to then spend $1.2k for 2 rockets at a time. Which would earn them some money from shark cards. I robbed a convenience store by aiming the firework launcher at the clerk and after he gave me the money I fired it at him and it blew him over the counter. I thought he was dead and then a couple of seconds later he got up and ran off.


Masks are around $27-$30k each and they do look good. Clothes are in the form of stars and stripes and the flag.

It's looks pretty cool for the PARACHUTE JUMPS though. Was totally worth the $30.000!

Yea the parachute one looks good, just not the tyre one, unless you like doing lots of standing burn outs.


What was weird is that I didn't have to buy mine. I brought up the parachute in ammunation and the Patriot smoke was already equipped. I think it's got something to do with the parachute smoke bug. Every time before when I go into ammunation it never comes up as my crew smoke and every time I put it on crew smoke and come into another session it will change it to no smoke or black smoke or something else but not my crew smoke. It has been bugging me for a long time now.

Just tested it and I love it but as you said only if you like doing burn outs. Still waiting for the UNDERGLOWS hope they'll put it in the game eventually.

Could be. I had to buy each for 30k to get them.

I was thinking to buy the pure black tint on my 20 vehicles, but when I saw it was $10k each and only slightly darker than limo, I decided to leave it for now as that would cost me $200k in total. The other reason is that I am hoping they bring mirrored tint for the vehicles. I think with certain paint jobs, the mirrored tint would improve the look of some of my vehicles.


I never thought about underglows, that would look awesome on some of my vehicles.

I know right imagine at night everyone with different colors just like in NEED FOR SPEED, MIDNIGHT CLUB L.A. or Fast and Furious! Beautiful and not too cheesy at all.

For SURVIVAL I can confirm you'll get now $30.000 for completing all 10 waves instead of the usual $20.000. RP still the same like 3.400 + the kills!

Not really worth it at all since you have to pay like +10k for the ammo at the end anyway.

Guys quick question:

I don't know if this was already in 1.14 but I got a random call from Lester to take out a target for him in a public session!? It was a NPC, took it down and got $3.000 as a reward but still a wanted level and bad mental state. It's alright but for only 3k not really worth it.

MoMO33 07-01-2014 09:17 PM

CAnn't Waittttt
 
its about freaking time

It's new, and it goes to everyone in the lobby (like Simeon's high priority cars).

Sm0keytrip0d 07-01-2014 10:22 PM

am I on my own when I say GTA online isn't working for me?

been trying to get on and twice ive sat here for about 10 mins with it saying "joining GTA online" only to have it kick me back to single player due to network error :/

Doktor Wilhelm 07-01-2014 11:09 PM

The Firework launcher is fun, seems to do quite a bit of damage to people on foot (spreads quite a bit of fire too).

The Musket is the most pointless weapon ever, though it's amusing having shoot outs with other people who are using it.

As I said above, I've noticed this showing up today for the first time, I wonder why R* didn't mention it in the patch note (unless they did and I'm just blind as usual)! :confused:

I've been getting a bit over $7k each time, not too bad while I'm collecting cars for Simeon and/or hunting bounties. :p
Don't notice any bad mental state effect, as I'm already as psycho as I can go! :dance:

They pretty much always have things they add/change that they don't mention. Like with 1.14, you have to actually escort the people in missions like Defender and Holed Up - Burton now, instead of them getting there on their own, even after everything is clear. Or how one of the patches (I don't remember which) removed the compensation for paint jobs when selling cars to Simeon (it used to be you'd get 1.5x the LSC value plus the cost of the paint job used, while now it's just 1.5x LSC (so don't use just any paint job, else you may lose money)).

Although it is odd, as this is something people will notice, even if they aren't paying too much attention, and it is a positive change.
