GTA V is jam-packed full of cool features and things to do. We’ve been playing Rockstar’s latest open-world game religiously over the weekend and we’ve chosen just 10 things that you may not have heard about just yet.
There are mild spoilers ahead so don’t read on if you don’t want to know.
1. Heists are even more brilliant than you think
The way GTA V handles heists is excellent. Pulling off the perfect robbery isn’t always about going in all guns blazing; it’s about careful planning and execution. In GTA V there’s an engaging build up to each heist. You’ll stake out the building that you plan to rob. In the first heist, for instance, Michael and his team plan to steal jewels from a well-secured Jewellery store.
You head down to a local store to kit yourself out with a nice suit, have meetings with the surveillance guy on your team before getting fitted with some equipment that allows you take photos from inside the store. Finally, you pose as a customer while taking snaps of the security that you’ll need to bypass.
You then have to carry out missions to get the necessary equipment to help you, such as stealing a van full of tear gas. You then choose who you want to come with you on the mission, picking from a selection of characters who have skills in areas such as driving or shooting. Finally, you have two options to choose from – whether to take a heavy approach or a smart one. This will determine how the heist plays out. Heists are entertaining, fun and designed to get your adrenaline pumping.
2. Impress the girl at the strip club and bring her home
There’s now more interaction in the strip clubs. Ask one of the ladies for a private dance and you can rub your hands all over her body to fill up a ‘Like’ meter. Be careful though as the doorman is watching from behind the curtains. You need to time your molestation perfectly whenever he moves away from the door. If he catches you too many times you get thrown out (though we do find the best way to combat that is to return armed with a machine gun to enact revenge). The idea is to compliment the stripper and feel her body until the meter is full. If that happens, you may get to take her home.
