Tips and Tricks: Piracy Prevention VIP Job
Piracy Prevention is one of four VIP Jobs available in Grand Theft Auto Online. As shown by the title, it pits an offensive team (pirates) against a defensive team (prevention). The former will deploy from the shore, whose objective is to claim the upper deck of the Super Yacht indicated by the yellow marking on the map. The base is guarded by the latter whose members will spawn on the deck itself.
Those who belong to the attacking side will make use of boats and choppers to reach the enemy’s base. When one of the members of the attacking side manages to set foot on the deck, it will require them to remain for 30 seconds in order to successfully claim the base. In contrast, the defending side should ensure that the attacking side will not remain for long.
Being part of the offensive team requires utmost flexibility and stealth-based tactics. Whether you choose to deploy from the skies via parachute, or swim the body of water will depend on the team’s planning. Avoid alerting the enemy while dodging mines is the key to claiming the deck.
Sway like the Wind
If you belong to an Organization, the Ghost Organization will come in handy. Use it before you sail to the Yacht to avoid being monitored on the enemy’s radar. This is recommended in order to board the ship relatively safely.
Be like Water
Another sneaky tactic is to have some members depend on rebreathers. Having members equip this will ensure that they can stay submerged for longer periods in order to avoid enemy gunfire. Since they are underwater, these players will also be somewhat hidden from surveillance.
In order to maintain the safety of the deck, those on the defensive should prevent entrance from any hostile threats. Strategy will range from watching the clouds for choppers, to scattering mines which requires fancy footwork.
As part of the defending team, players should scatter proximity mines to deter players from entering the upper deck easily. However be mindful of the surroundings to prevent any accidents.
Be wary of any unsuspecting enemies which parachute from above to breach the Yacht through the roof. This is particularly concerning since players may utilize the exclusive Ghost Organization skill. As mentioned above, cover the landing zone with proximity mines.
