Battlefield 4 Weapon Stats

Weapon Charts Here! (Via Symthic.com)

So Battlefield 4 has finally been released on the Xbox 360/Playstation 3 and PC.  If you are anything like me you have been stuck at work all day checking out gameplay via Twitch and YouTube.  The struggle of having responsibilities…

Well while I was dreaming of being at home in my boxers raging profanities at my TV, I came across some BF4 weapon charts that I wanted to share with my fellow gamers.  The charts available seem to cover all available weapons in BF4 currently.  They cover damage over distance, time to kill, recoil, and may other stats on easy to understand line graphs.  The site states that all stats are pulled directly from the game files, so they are 100% accurate.  If you are the type of player who basis their weapon and load out choices on the facts, then you should definitely bookmark this one.

Hope it helps, and we will be on the battlefield in full force tonight on the Xbox 360!

GTA Online Tips – Helping You Become a Better Criminal

47114ab6ca8d384d89a46db18e13e4a1_content_large

Now that people are finally starting to experience what Grand Theft Online is all about, we thought it would be a good idea to share a few of the tactics we have been using so far.  I (Wes) haven’t had any problems with GTA Online connectivity, and have been playing since day one.  The rest of the weRgamerz crew have been online since Wednesday.  Hopefully the tips we share here will help out our fellow gamers and criminals.

  • Deposit your cash from your cell phone – This is the fastest and most convenient way to secure your cash after missions and robberies.  Just press up on the d-pad and go to the internet.  From there pick money and services and scroll down to the Maze Bank link.  Go through the bank’s menu and eventually you will see an option to deposit your money.
  • Sell cars to LS Customs in between missions – This is a very good tactic to double up on your money.  Find a nice car to steal and ride out to any LS Customs garage.  In GTA Online there is an option to sell the car.  I generally pull in at least 5K from selling the vehicle.  Don’t to be to fancy with your car selection though.  LS Customs won’t buy cars that are “to hot” as they put it.  I believe this might be based on your rank, but I’m not 100% sure.
  • Don’t forget Tennis/Base Jumping/Golf/Etc – All activities in GTA Online make you money and earn you experience points.  Plus you can bet on matches!
  • The Cops are Hardcore – The cops in GTA Online are noticeably more hardcore compared to the single player portion.  If you find a car out in the wild that you want, be sure to take it straight to LS Customs for a respray.  Riding around in a stolen car will automatically get you 1-2 stars if you are spotted by the boys in blue.  They tend to spot you before you spot them.
  • Looking for a Chopper? – Go to the Heli pad area next to the Los Santos airport.  It’s not to far from where Franklin’s garage would be in the single player.  There are always 3 choppers there for the taking.

That’s all we have for now.  We will be online for most of the weekend, and will be posting more gameplay up on our youtube channel.

Lets Stock About It – Controlling the GTA 5 Stock Market

47114ab6ca8d384d89a46db18e13e4a1_content_large

Hello fellow criminals!

I will now try my best to explain the other method I use to make money off of LCN and BAWSAQ.  This method is more player driven as it doesn’t require you to do a mission, but it is also very frustrating as there are a lot of unknowns.  I don’t have a fancy name for (which sucks) so what it pretty much boils down to is manipulating the stock market.  How I do this required some research on my part of the various businesses within Grand Theft Auto 5.  I looked over the two available markets and targeted a company.  When I first tried this out I noticed that Up-n-Atom Burger was selling for around $14 bucks a share, so I bought about 25k in shares.

If you don’t know by the name, Up-n-Atom Burger is…well…a burger joint.  An in-game fast food restaurant.  There are a few other fast food joints in GTA V.  The only one I was able to find listed on the market at the time was Burger Shot.  The others are…

  • Pizza This
  • Chihuahua Hotdogs
  • Cluckin’ Bell
  • Ring of Fire Chilli House
  • Burger Shot
  • Taco Bomb
  • Wigwam Burger

Now on first instinct I pressed start and looked for these restaurants on my map.  This is when my frustration started.  None of these businesses are marked on the map.  I wasn’t able to find a single food joint.  This was after I spent the 25k so I had to figure something out.  I could have spent that cash on something important…like clothes.  I tried searching for locations on the internet (the real internet), but that didn’t work.  It looks like no one really knows where these places are at, so eventually I just started doing side missions.  Luckily, while I was driving I managed to find a Burger Shot.  Unfortunately, this was when I found out that I couldn’t enter the establishment.  How was I supposed to wreck and rob the place if I couldn’t go in it?

With a sad face, I pulled out of the parking lot and headed towards the freeway.  While out on the road I noticed three trailer trucks.  Each had company logos belonging to one of the listed fast food joints.  Lucky for me one of them belong to Burger Shot.  Oh yea!!  So I blew them all up.  Yep, just wrecked them.  Matter of fact, for the next 30 minutes I became a freeway pirate.  Eventually this lead to a 4 star wanted level, and I had to run from the cops.  After dodging the law, I pulled over and checked on my stocks.  Up-n-Atom was up by about 15%.  Money in the bank baby, money in the bank….

I looked all over the internet to confirm that stuff like this works, and found other stories similar to this one, but I have to admit that I wasn’t able to replicate these results.  I’m not 100% sure if I got lucky, or if I really just manipulated the freaking stock market.  I’ve heard that other players have made a decent living investing in one particular car brand and then destroying every other moving vehicle on the road.  I haven’t tried it yet, but I’ll give it a shot and let everyone know if it works.  I think my biggest problem right now with the GTA 5 stock market is me not understanding the scope of this gameplay mechanic.  It’s not very clear what I can actually do to the various businesses listed.  If I listen to one radio station all the time does it boost it’s value?  What about the BAWSAQ investments?  This market is supposed to be based on community actions.  Haha if only I invested this much thought in my REAL LIFE.

Either way, this is what I got right now.  The game has only been out a few days, so a lot of this will be figured out over the next few weeks.  It just sucks because I want to know right now.  I hope that this helps someone find the answers.  If it hasn’t take a quick peep at these money making techniques!

Grand Theft Auto 5 Money Makers (F the Stock Market!!!)

GTA-V-big

 

I hope everyone is having as much fun on Grand Theft Auto 5 as I am.  This game is just insane, but if you play anything like me….you are already broke after you first heist.  I can’t help that I like to buy every piece of clothing at every clothing store I find.  I have to keep Franklin clean!  We have made a few posts about making money off the stock market, but there are other ways to make bank young criminal.  Here are the few ways I’ve found so far.

  • Get into the Real Estate game – I was hoping this was going to be more like Fable, but I guess that would be to easy. Correction, it IS like fable. Some properties have a weekly payout for the owner. One property in the game pays 200k!  The property you buy come with side missions.  These side missions pay money, and can become a decent stream of income for the committed.  When you get Trevor, you get a very obvious chance to by a hangar.  After you buy it you get the opportunity to move drugs and weapons for a decent price.
  • Do some Racing! – What’s the point in tuning up your car if you don’t plan on using that new engine?  Winning the races can get you paid.  It will also boost your driving skill.  It’s pretty much a win win.
  • People Watch ATMs…and then kill them – If they just left the ATM they must have cash on them right?
  • Good Ole Gruppe 6 – The Gruppe 6 security truck/van vehicles carry a decent amount of money.  Make sure you carry some explosives with you, blow off the back doors, and steal the loot!
  • Invest in the Guns – Yes I said “F the market” but people use a lot of guns and bullets in Los Santos.  Why not invest in that?  I would invest in them early.  I believe there should be something listed on BAWSAQ….you know…the player driven market.
  • Do the Side Missions – This one is pretty obvious, but thought I would throw it in here anyway.  Some side missions lead to a decent amount of cash.  I read a story of someone giving a ride to one of the “randomly generated” side quests in the game.  Got 100k when he dropped him off.  Turns out he was the CEO of some company.
  • Ummm…Cheat – I am surprised I haven’t cheated yet, but there is an infinite money cheat in the game.  I believe you just have to find some money hidden under water.  Once found, pick it up and then switch characters.  Every time you switch the money will respawn.  Just keep doing it until your rich I guess.  Just do a quick search on youtube/google and you will find it.

Feel free to add ones I missed in the comments!

Lets Stock About it – Grand Theft Auto 5 Stock Exchange Tips (Update!)

47114ab6ca8d384d89a46db18e13e4a1_content_large

Looking to make a few more dollars while you destroy the streets of Los Santos????  How about making a play at the in-game stock exchange!  First off, we aren’t pros in stocks.  Not even close, but we do know a few tricks that can you make you some extra money to spend on monkey masks and fast cars.

There are two stock exchanges.  Liberty City National Exchange is the game based one.  BAWSAQ is the community based one.  We will be focusing on the Liberty City National Exchange (LCN) as this is the one that is easier to manipulate.  What, you didn’t think we would be fair did you?  This is Grand Theft Auto baby!

There are two easy ways that we have found to play the market.  The first is to pay attention to your missions.  For example, a guy named Lester will request Franklin to take out important people in various companies in the game.  When you get to a mission like this make sure you invest in the competing company.  Buy right before you do the mission.  Go take out the person in question, and then sit back and let the market work.  The company you attack will see a drastic drop in value on the market.  This drop will be followed by a sudden rise in value for their competitor.  That’s when you sell.  Boom!  Instant profit!!!

Update!  There are multiple conflicting reports on this method all over the internet.  My thoughts….it doesn’t work.  The second way is completely player controlled.  Take a look at the market and find companies with very low values.  These are the shares you want to buy.  Pick one to start with and invest as much as you want.  The more the better of course.  After you’re done, go cause complete mayhem to the competing business.  Kill there employees, destroy their merchandise, and vandalize their buildings.  Really mess them up!!!  Just like the process above, when the competitor’s price goes down the company you invested in will go up.  Sell Sell SELL!!!!  Written example here!

To help you get started we have a list of all the companies (that we could find) matched with their competitor found via Reddit.

  1. CoolBeans – BeanMachine
  2. Burgershot – Up-An-Atom
  3. Clucking Bell – TacoBomb
  4. FlyUS – AirEmu
  5. GoPostal – PostOP
  6. Bilkington – DollarPills
  7. Pisswasser – Logger
  8. MazeBank – BankOfLiberty
  9. Redwood – Debonaire
  10. Slaughter, Slaughter & Slaughter – Bullhead
  11. RadioLosSantos – WorldwideFM
  12. eCola – Raine

We hope this helps our fellow criminals!!!

Do you have some tips on making money???

Please note that these same strategies should work on GTA Online, but Rockstar has mentioned they will play the roll of “the government” if things get out of hand.  Not sure what that means, but a heads up anyway.
