Rickie Lukens is a character in the HD Universe who appears as a minor character in Grand Theft Auto V.

Character history

Rickie, in 2013, is a software developer working for Lifeinvader. In the mission Friend Request, Rickie mistakes Michael De Santa for an IT temp, leading him to his workstation to clear up a virus after visiting a "Not Safe For Work" website. Rickie correctly deduces that Michael was the one who rigged the smartphone bomb which killed Liveinvader CEO Jay Norris. Rickie uses this fact to blackmail Michael into finding him work after he is laid off from Lifeinvader. Michael can then employ Rickie as a hacker for certain heists. Rickie has the poorest initial skills of the three available hackers; however, Rickie has the lowest cut of all available heist crew members at 4 percent.

Role in heists

The Jewel Store Job

If chosen, Rickie gives the crew approximately 30 seconds to raid the cases, and Michael will complain about hiring a hacker who's not savvy enough to run his own anti-virus software.

The Bureau Raid

If the player chooses the "Roof Approach" and selects Rickie for the first time, he is unsure of how to hack the mainframe and is unable to shut off the sprinkler system; however, if Rickie was used during the Jewel Store Job, then he competently guides Michael through the hacking process and shuts off the sprinklers.

The Big Score

If the player chooses the "Subtle Approach" and selects Rickie for the first time, there is a 4 second delay between traffic light changes. If Rickie was used in one previous job, then the delay is reduced to 2 seconds. If Rickie was used in both the Vangelico and FIB Building heists, then traffic light changes are instant.
