GTA San AndreasEdit

While GTA: San Andreas did not use the store robbery feature from Vice City, threatening had some minor upgrades in the game. The player may "threaten" a gang member to recruit him.

In GTA V, the player now has the option to rob convenience stores by threatening the clerk (if the clerk is absent or dead, the player can also take money directly from available cash registers). This does not always work as some clerks will cower behind the counter while others will refuse to give the player any money. If the same convenience story is robbed several times, a clerk may even pull a weapon and begin firing at the player.

TriviaEdit

  • When your back is turned on a store robbery in Vice City, the robbery process will be incomplete, and the owner will be more likely sound the alarm to call the Cops.
  • Turning your back on a clerk in GTA Online (Unconfirmed in GTA V) during a robbery may result in him dropping the money and grabbing a Shotgun to harm the player.
