Events of GTA V
Rickie is first encountered in the Friend Request mission where he unwittingly helps Michael infiltrate the Lifeinvader HQ, as he mistakes him for tech support and calls up him to his cubicle to fix his computer.
If the player chooses him for The Jewel Store Job, he will only give 30 seconds to rob the store before the alarms go off, Michael will even say that he regret hiring "a hacker who can't install anti-virus software".
In The Bureau Raid, roof method, if the player chooses him for the first time, he will just guess all that you need to do to hack the computer and when the sprinklers are triggered, he says that he doesn't even know where to start to turn then off, Michael will get frustrated when he hears this. However, if Rickie already has experience from the jewel store job, he will know exactly what you need to do to hack the computer, Rickie is also able to turn off the sprinklers, when Michael notices the sprinklers going off, Rickie will comment: "It's still raining, gentlemen?"
In The Big Score, subtle aproach, if he is chosen for the first time, there will be a small lag when Franklin is controling the traffic lights, it will take about 4 seconds for the lights change after he selected then, but if Rickie already has experience from the jewel store job or the IAA heist, then the lag will take just 2 seconds, if he has experience from both of the previous heists, then there will be no lag at all.
If Rickie is not chosen for heists, he will call Michael twice to complain.
