ATM Robbery (Tutorial and information)
« on: 21 03, 2018, 07:17:42 pm »
What is an 'ATM robbery'?
It is a criminal mission where you can earn money and reputation. In order to start this mission you need to go to any ATM and press 'N', once you've pressed 'N' there will be a GUI on your screen where you can choose the difficulty of your ATM robbery. The higher the level, the higher the difficulty thus earning a higher money reward and reputation. Once you've chosen a certain level of difficulty, you will see a keypad on your screen. You are supposed to crack the code of the ATM now, when you enter a number it will either tell you higher or lower. Successfully cracking the code will also make you wanted, so be aware of cops! The simplest level gives you 1.0 wanted level stars, $5208 cash, 100 reputation points, and requires you to crack a code between 1-2194 in less than 1 minute and 15 seconds. The most difficult level gives you 6.0 wanted level stars, $37500 cash, 721 reputation points, and requires you to crack a code between 1-1,000,000,012 in less than exactly 10 minutes.

(Picture of the GUI that pops up after pressing 'N')


For example, if you choose the simplest level, the code might be 1600. I will give you some tips in order to crack it quickly. Never start with a number that's too high, or too low, try taking a number in the middle. Like 1000 for example. It will then say higher or lower, if it says higher then you could go for 1500, if it says lower then you would go for around 700. The reason we do this, is because we choose the number which is in between the previous entered number, and the next one. This will save us a lot of time while cracking the code. So lets say that when we wrote 1500, it once again said higher, so now we have to choose a number between 1500-2194 and as I've taught you, you need to pick the one in the middle, which is 1700. It will then say lower so we now pick a number between 1500-1700 which is 1600. Congratulations, you just cracked the code!


Video tutorial:


(Steps of what I've done in the video):
First I had chosen a number between 1-2194 which was 1000.
Then it said lower so I had chosen a number between 1-1000 which is 500.
It once again told me lower so I chose a number between 1-500 which is 250, but I used 200 because it is less precise.
It then said for the third time lower so I chose a number between 1-200 which is 100.
Then it finally told me higher so now I know that the number is between 100-200, so I chose 150.
It then said lower so the number is between 100-150, which is 125. But to be less precise, I chose 120.
Then it told me lower again so I chose 110 as it is between 100-120.
Then it said higher, so I chose 110 as it's right in the middle.
After that, it told me higher so the number is between 110-120, so I decided to choose 115 as it's right in the middle of the two.
Then it said higher again, so I chose 117 as it's between 115-120.
It said for the last time higher, so I went with 119 as it's between 117-120.
Then it told me lower so that means there is only 1 number left between 117-119 which is 118.
So I wrote 118 and I finally cracked the code in 28 seconds of time.


Commonly asked questions:

Q: I went to Las Venturas (LV) and I tried to crack the ATM, but it didn't allow me to press 'N', is it bugged?
A: No, ATM's cannot be robbed in Las Venturas (LV) and San Fierro (SF), only in Los Santos (LS).

Q: I keep forgetting the previous entered number, I feel hopeless, should I stop trying?
A: No, if you are unable to remember numbers then you can write the previous entered number on a little piece of paper and write higher/lower next to it, even I sometimes do this on the hardest levels. Keep in mind that if you don't rob the ATM on your first, second, or third try then it doesn't mean you should lose hope, it only takes practise!

Q: Does having VIP affect any of the rewards?
A: Yes, VIP does affect it. It will increase only your cash reward by 20%.

Q: I tried robbing an ATM while being a civilian and it doesn't work, is it bugged?
A: No, it's not bugged. You need to be a criminal or a gangster to rob the ATM.

Q: Where are the ATM's located?
A: You can find the location of the ATM's by using the command '/batm', the ATM's will then be marked as blips on your map.

Q: Do we get a message after robbing an ATM?
A: Yes, if you successfully cracked the code, then this will be written: You commit Felony Robbing an ATM.

Q: Are there any achievements related to ATM robberies?
A: Yes, there are currently two achievements about it, the first one requires you to crack the code of an ATM 10 times, which will result in a reward of $100,000. The second one requires you to crack the code of an ATM 50 times, the reward of this achievement is $500,000.


Q: What does an ATM look like?
A: They look like this:
