Have you ever been busted?

In your whole gameplay experience, how many times were you busted?

Seems like cops are more likely to shoot you down. I have been killed many times by cops, but not once have they arrested me, I don't even know what happens then, do I lose my weapons? Does something funny happens when it happens to Trevor?

Never once got busted, I assume it works a lot like previous GTA games. I even heard that "Busted!" shows up again unlike GTA IV!

On a 1 star wanted level don't the cops just aim their guns at you, you raise your hands and 'busted' appears on your screen?

I never noticed because I always ran from the cops for an immediate 2-3 star wanted level.

If I remember correctly in past GTA games if you were driving slow enough that the police managed to open your car door, you were automatically busted regardless of what wanted level you were on? I was playing today and the cop opened the door, pulled me onto the ground and shot me in the back with a shotgun

Hahaha that's terrible. You are correct on the old games, but it looks like getting busted in GTA V is actually a chore! I'm assuming getting pulled out on a one star wanted level would be the only one that doesn't get you shot.

The only time I have ever been busted on that game was when I made the mistake of thinking i could run back into Franklin's house and try hide in bed it didn't work what so ever !! Copper just came running into my house with gun drawn and busted me in my bedroom :'(

Never been busted. On IV it was pretty easy to get busted, they'd tell you to put your hands up on 1 star, if you run away it goes to 2 stars and they start shooting. Not a clue how it works on this game. Guess you lose all your ammo when it finally happens? Getting shot in the back doesn't sound good.

I got busted once just to see what happens this time.

Loosing all your ammo just makes being "killed" the better option.

I wasn't busted a single time. I either went out shooting or escaped the wanted level.

Yes, only once I was busted.

If you run away, it's 2 stars and they fire at you.

Yeah, it was more like a conversation starter than an actual question

Great thread lol.

I have only been busted once in around 450 hours of gameplay. And that was because I was too slow when trying to drive off (pretty sure I had 4 burst tyres) [tyre is spelled with a 'y' in the UK before anyone corrects me)

As mentioned above, you lose all of your ammo but keep your weapons. It's much better to be killed and just pay the 5g's.

Thats actually epic. Imagine the look on the cops face as you try to run away with no functioning tires

I had no idea you could be busted in GTA5. LSPD is just like LAPD, VERY quick to go lethal.

Now that you mention it, I haven't. Cops in this game are aggressive mofos.

It never occurred to me until now that I haven't been busted yet in GTA lol. My guess is the same thing happens to you as in the previous games. Get arrested, taken to jail, loose your guns same same.

I've never been busted, but then again I've never tried to get busted prefer to die in a hail of bullets lol ... Always try and shoot my way out of trouble and escape, but I think the LSPD are a bunch of gun running psycho's who shot first and might ask questions later

Never been busted and frankly didn't think that was possible. I just step outside and the cops start shooting. They're pretty trigger happy.
