    This one?
    Am I the only one who can't do shit without reading what the stage is about? If I see the marker but do not read the stage's description, I can't figure out what to do
    That's the one. It's always funny when you get that one from a boss contact.

    I think I'm one of the few people who still refer to the weapons by their real-life counterpart names. Yeah I know they're heavily modified but the silhouette is similar enough.

    Gun nut elitism anybody? The only guns I recognise are the ak and the spas-12 shotgun. Oh and the ACT 44 is a desert eagle right? And I only know that because I have played many video games. Your average person doesn't know much about guns. It'd be like expecting everyone to know what you mean if you refer to the cars in the game as the real-life vehicles they're based on (exceptions being the obvious mini and jeep)

    I don't expect anything, I refer to them in that way reflexively. I don't care what anyone calls them. If I was a car nut I'd refer to the cars in that way. It wasn't elitism, I was just discussing my perception.

    I call many of the cars as their GTA series counterparts and IRL counterparts.

    I refer to most ingame cars by the ingame name especially when it's a fictional car based on a real one

    probably why it pisses me off to no end when people decide to break the lore and add their favourite real life cars to GTA

    the Vapid Cruiser is 4x more boss than any gayass Crown Vic interceptor model they'll ever make

    I mistook your tone I guess. For that, I apologise.

    It took me 500-510 hours to max out my Enforcer and 400 (exactly 400, lucky me) to max out my Criminal. Then again, I don't spend much time at all in Social, maybe that's where some of your time has gone?

    You can still unlock role progressions and just pvp for fun. That is what i do.

    Or you can start a 3rd character and work on maxing him/her.

    So someone hackusated me last night and was like "Nice aim-hacks, thx i recorded this enjoy the ban."
    Here is the kicker, this person began following me and recording me while I was doing other matches. This person spent the whole night following me lol, whenever he see me driving around he would stop and start following me again.

    As Mr. Someguy said, this game is the Cold War, just replace communists with hackers. Plus, people in this game are stupid, and some of them need to accept that people get lucky or are just better than they are.

    So, I've been watching some tutorial videos on YouTube, trying to get the gist of it and all, and so far I've made a little over 10k by stealing cars, mugging people and ram-raiding...

    I noticed the standard weapons I have hardly do any damage; One time I've been witnessed and I managed to run into the enforcer 3 times, the last time I've managed to unload my clip on him and he didn't die...

    Unless I'm lucky enough to run him over, they kill me 98% of the times...

    What weapons/upgrades do you guys suggest?? Thanks in advance! :D

    Edited:

    Also, what if I go "solo" and sorta "hunt down" enforcers on my own, that should increase my notoriety level way faster than usual, right?

    The TTK in this game is longer than a lot of games.

    I assume you're using the STAR, which ironically despite being the starter weapon, is the hardest to use properly. It's got an average rate of fire, low recoil, average magazine and reload, its an all 'rounder. Despite it's excellent accuracy, it suffers from rapid accuracy decay. This means if you fire at around 2-3 shots a second, you're likely to hit every shot, but going automatic, you won't hit a thing. When using the STAR at range, fire it semi-automatically as mentioned. At medium range, burst firing is acceptable. A 2-5 round burst, short pause, then repeat. At close range, full auto is acceptable as the accuracy loss isn't as much of a problem. The STAR loses accuracy fast, but it also regains it fast, don't be afraid to take your finger off the trigger for a moment, nomatter how short, it can make a difference.

    I hope I've covered enough. I'm kind of an expert on the STAR, but at the same time I suck at teaching

    Yep, that's the one...

    Ok, it all makes sense now! I did go full-auto on him, mid-range because he was kicking my ass and I got desperate :P

    It's tricky, but the STAR is a valuable asset if you can use it properly. The fact that it's permanent means it'll always be there when you need it.

    My grenade timing is iffy. Sometimes I'll blind toss a grenade as far as I can and score a direct hit, or something I'll throw one at a target 5 meters away and miss completely. I have instances where I fail to hit a car moving at 5mph, and yet I have times where I'll nail a Cisco moving full speed.
