I'll simply ignore any messages that I can't easily read (I have too many projects going on to spend time deciphering gibberish!)

Regretfully, I will have to decline your request.

Introduction | [GTASAINTRO] 0=================0 \XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/ I'm a completist. That is to say, when I play a game, I want to see and experience everything the designers put into the game to be seen and experienced. If there comes a point in a game where I find out (that for whatever reason) I cannot see some aspect of the game, that's generally around the time I lose interest, and the game gets shelved. What can I say, it's an affliction. However, I know for a fact that I'm not the only one who has this particular disease. Many people out there share this same problem that I have. A game like GTA:SA has an enormous number of things to do and see. So many, in fact, that unless you use some form of a guide, you are unlikely to encounter all of them. If you only play through the story missions (the missions the game points you to), you've only played half the game (or less), and arguably not even the most interesting half. While there are a couple of 100% completion FAQ available for GTA:SA, the 100% completion number is what they focus on (which is fair enough, they ARE 100% completion FAQs, after all). You will get to 100% completion by following this guide, but only as a result of seeing the entire game from start to finish. However, along the way, you will also do a lot of things that don't directly affect your completion statistic. These will be labeled as "optional". If all you want to do is get the magical 100% completion number, you can safely ignore them, secure in the knowledge that you will still have seen the vast majority of the game (far more than if you only played through the story missions). But for those of you who want to see and do it all, this guide is written for you. Read on, and enjoy yourself. One word of warning, there may be spoilers contained within this guide. If you don't want to read the spoilers, why are you reading a guide in the first place? But I'll try not to give away anything that you wouldn't already see at that point in the game anyway. For that matter, I'll try not to give anything away at all. I'm deliberately going to be terse in describing the story missions, and the focus will be on strategies for beating the mission rather than describing what happens. But I'm not going to make any promises; there may be the occasional slip of a plot line here and there. I'm not going to go over the keyboard controls like some FAQs do. Read the manual, that's what it's there for. That being said, the game is sometimes a bit bad about telling you exactly what buttons control what (for example, nowhere in the manual does it tell you that quickly tapping the forward arrow key when you are on a motorcycle will keep your head down and give you a speed boost). In cases where the controls are not standard, I will let you know which buttons are the relevant control buttons. As I was writing this guide, I ran through the game in very nearly the exact order I describe (I moved a couple of the girlfriends in San Fierro around a bit to better balance things out, but other than that what you see below is exactly how I ran my own game (my third time through it)). So I know it's entirely possible to complete the game using my order. However, don't feel like you're bound to the exact same order I went in. If you want to change things up, be my guest! If you want to run all 100 gang tags at once, feel free (it'll give you the bonus weapons earlier than you would get them otherwise). Just don't skip over something and forget to come back to it! Inevitably, someone is going to ask "Why did you do X before Y?" or "Doing this before that is better because...". The order I've put stuff in is the order I did them in; there's no better reason I can give. I tried to strike a balance between keeping the story missions moving forward, collecting the hidden packages (tags, oysters, etc.), and doing the optional stuff. I make no promises or presumptions that my order is the best possible way to complete the game, it's just one way to do it. Those funny codes on the right side of the table of contents are search codes. It took a lot of tedious effort to put them in for you, so don't let them go to waste! They're very easy to use. Double click on the code inside the brackets, hit Control-C, then hit Control-F, then Control-V, then the return key. You will instantly be taken to the correct place in the guide. One last thing before we get to the interesting stuff. I'm not going to talk about cheat codes. They don't interest me, and therefore I don't know anything about them (seriously, I don't even know how to activate them). To me, there's little point in playing with a cheat code on. The only time I consider them valid to use is if you are stuck on something so frustrating that the alternative is to delete the game from your hard drive (and I've never had this happen in this or any other GTA game). Otherwise, I fail to see the point. I'm also not going to use anything I consider exploit-ish. These are things in the game that are legal, but were not intended (in my opinion) to be used by the designers in quite the way they are being used (for example, there is a way to make a whole lot of money without any effort betting on the ponies, essentially making money a non-factor in the game from very early on. This is, in my view, an exploit). Sometimes it's a bit of a grey area (for instance, I use a bit of an underhanded method to pass the BMX challenge). Use your own judgment on that stuff and do it however you like (it is, after all, your game), but I won't be describing them here. (A side note about cheat codes. It is entirely possible to activate a cheat code accidentally. Apparently, to turn on a code, you just type in the appropriate characters. Unfortunately, there are so many different codes that you can actually type in a cheat character sequence in the normal course of driving. This is a very bad design flaw in the game, in my opinion (the correct way to have set this up is to have a special key set up (such as the tilde key or perhaps F12) that you press before entering the code so that the game knows you are about to purposely enter a cheat code, and I'm astonished the designers didn't do this). Anyway, if you accidentally enter a code and see the message "cheat activated", or when you try to save you get a warning about having activated a code, there's nothing for it except to exit out of the game and restart (or just load a save game). Fortunately, this hasn't happened to me very often (I had it happen twice during the course of writing this guide), but it generally will happen at the worst possible time (just as you finish the really difficult or tedious mission). Will saving the game with a cheat code affect your 100% completion score? I honestly don't know. It might (it did in Vice City). I just went the safe route and reloaded a save when it happened to me.) Okay, enough exposition from me, let's get to the good stuff. /XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\ 0=====================0 | E. Recommended Maps | [GTASAMAPS] 0=====================0 \XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/ During the course of this game you will be collecting various items and going to specific locations to accomplish certain things (these include spraying gang tags, collecting horseshoes, collecting oysters, performing unique jumps, and taking snapshots). Alex Bates has done an absolutely brilliant job of putting together maps showing the locations of these items. They are formatted to print onto a single page, and are an invaluable resource to have. I highly recommend you get these maps and print them out for reference. I will be using the numbering system that Alex set up when describing these items in the text of this guide. Links to the maps are as follows (in the order we will use them): Tag Locations Map http://db.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/file/grand_theft_auto_sa_tags.png Unique Jumps Map http://db.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/file/grand_theft_auto_sa_jumps.png Oyster Locations Map http://db.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/file/grand_theft_auto_sa_oyster.png Snapshot Locations Map http://db.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/file/grand_theft_auto_sa_snapshots.png Horseshoe Locations Map http://db.gamefaqs.com/console/ps2/file/grand_theft_auto_sa_hoirseshoes.png The above maps are (c) Copyright Alex Bates 2005, and are referenced with the permission of the author. /XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\ 0======================0 | F. Player Statistics | [GTASASTATSTOP] 0======================0 \XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/ Let's take a look at your character's statistics. Some will be familiar to you if you've played the previous games, while others are brand new. Most of these can go up or down depending on your actions in the game, but a couple can only go up. F1. Health [GTASASTATS01] ========== This doesn't really need an explanation, does it? If it hits zero, you are wasted, and get a free trip to the hospital (minus weapons, armor, and some of your money used to pay your medical bill). There is a sub-statistic called Max Health, which, naturally enough, is the maximum you can raise your health bar to. This goes up (to a maximum of 100) as you get stronger and have more stamina, and can go down if you are wasted a lot. If you do a particular mission, you can raise your Max Health to 150 (after which it never goes back down). F2. Armor [GTASASTATS02] ========= Armor protects you from certain types of damage (bullets and explosions). It does not protect you from things like falling damage or drowning damage. If you are wearing armor and get hit by a bullet, the damage will come off of your armor before coming off of your health (naturally enough). There is a mission in the game you can complete which will raise the maximum armor level from 100 to 150. You always start off with the maximum armor level whenever you grab a new armor icon. F3. Wanted Level [GTASASTATS03] ================ If you do something illegal where a police officer can see you, you will get a wanted level. The wanted level ranges from 1 to 6 stars. The more stars you have, the more interest the police take in you: 1 star - If a police officer happens to see you while on their normal patrol, they will chase you if it's not to inconvenient (they may shoot at you, but often not, they are more interesting in busting you at this point). Otherwise, they don't bother to converge on you. A 1 star wanted level will go away on its own after a period of time if you stay on your best behavior. 2 stars - Now the police will begin to converge and you will see foot patrols, police bikes, and police cars coming your way. Additionally, the police will be much more likely to be shooting at you with pistols. 3 stars - This is the same as two stars, only you have a police helicopter joining in on the action, which will attempt to reign down death from above. 4 stars - More choppers come into the hunt, only these guys will have SWAT team member repel down. You'll most likely also get SWAT vans showing up. The SWAT teams carry micro-SMGs for fun and enjoyment. 5 stars - Now the FBI get involved (they will show up in Ranchers), and these guys are packing MP5s. They are not happy to see you. 6 stars - If you make it this high, the army shows up in Rhino Tanks and Flatbed trucks, and they bring M4s with them. Good luck, you'll need it. F4. Stamina [GTASASTATS04] =========== Simply put, the higher your stamina, the longer you can sprint, fast pedal a bike, and fast swim. Once you max out your stamina, your ability to move quickly is pretty much unlimited. F5. Respect [GTASASTATS05] =========== The more respect you have, the more gang members you can control at once. Controlling gang members is sometimes useful, though more often than not they just get in the way. Respect comes through a variety of means: 40% of the total comes from running respect, which can go up or down based on your actions (killing a dealer, killing an enemy gang member, and taking over territory all add to your running respect, while killing a member of your own gang, losing a controlled gang member, or losing a territory will drop your running respect). 36% of the total comes from doing missions. Many of the story missions give you respect as part of the reward. This value cannot go down, only up. The other 24% is about equally divided between girlfriend progress, territories controlled, money in your possession, your fitness level, and your clothes (including tattoos and haircut). Each contributes about 4-6% to the total respect value. F6. Muscle [GTASASTATS06] ========== The more muscle you have, the more damage you do in melee combat. Muscle also contributes to your fitness level, which contributes to your respect and sex appeal. You can gain muscle by running, bicycling, swimming, and working out in the gym. F7. Fat [GTASASTATS07] ======= Naturally, fat detracts from your fitness level. You may be tempted to keep it at zero, but a small amount of fat is a good thing. You want a little bit of buffer so that you don't start immediately losing muscle mass when you get hungry. Eat the salad meals to get rid of your hunger without building up more fat. F8. Sex Appeal [GTASASTATS08] ============== Sex appeal helps you get the girls. Without a high enough sex appeal, the potential girlfriends in the game will not agree to go out with you. Sex appeal is gained through a variety of means. Your fitness level (which itself is a combination of the muscle and fat statistics), your haircut, any tattoos you may have, and the last car you drove all affect your sex appeal. Once you finish a particular task in the game, your sex appeal will automatically be maxed. F9. Luck [GTASASTATS09] ======== In theory, luck plays a part in gambling. Personally, I have never noticed an effect, but that doesn't mean anything. Your luck will stay at zero until relatively late in the game, at which point you will complete a task that will bring it up to maximum. F10. Lung Capacity [GTASASTATS10] ================== Lung capacity is a measure of your ability to stay underwater. The higher the capacity, the longer you can stay down. Building up this stat is a matter of practice; the longer you are under water, the more you will build up this stat. /XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\ 0==================0 | G. Player Skills | [GTASASKILLSTOP] 0==================0 \XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/ With GTA:SA, Rockstar Games has steered the franchise a little toward the role playing element in that your character can upgrade his skills. This is done simply by using the skills in question. We'll go over them and see how they affect your game play. G1. Driving Skill [GTASASKILLS01] ================= As your driving skill increases, the tendency of your car to fishtail and/or spin out decreases. Driving skill increases linearly as a function of distance driven, but its rate of increase is very slow. G2. Flying Skill [GTASASKILLS02] ================ The higher your flying skill, the easier you will find it is to control planes and helicopters. You will gain more granularity with the controls, which means less overcompensation. As with driving, flying skill increases as a function of the distance flown. G3. Bike Skill [GTASASKILLS03] ============== This is your skill on a motorcycle (it has nothing to do with bicycling). The higher your skill, the more likely you are to stay on the bike during a collision or a landing. As with the other vehicle skills, the skill goes up the farther you drive a motorcycle. G4. Cycling Skill [GTASASKILLS04] ================= Cycling is similar to the Bike skill, except it pertains to bicycles rather than motorcycles. As your skill increases, the chance of you falling off the bike decreases during a collision or when coming down from a jump. G5. Pimping Skill [GTASASKILLS05] ================= The higher your pimping skill, the less likely you are to have a "problem" customer (that is to say, one that won't pay or who wants to rough up your girl). Pimping skill is raised while pimping (naturally enough). It goes up pretty quickly (one time through the pimping mission ought to max it out). G6. Gambling Skill [GTASASKILLS06] ================== The higher your gambling skill, the more you can bet, and the more you can borrow from the casino. Gambling skill is raised by gambling, which seems perfectly reasonable. Note that the skill does not affect your chances of winning (that's the Luck statistic). G7. Pistol [GTASASKILLS07] ========== At Gangster level (100) you get better lock on range, accuracy, and rate of fire. At Hitman level (1000) you can duel wield the weapon (one in each hand). G8. Silenced Pistol [GTASASKILLS08] =================== At Gangster level (200) you get better lock on range, accuracy, rate of fire, and strafe speed. Also, you can move while in aiming stance. At Hitman level (1000) you can fire while moving. G9. Desert Eagle [GTASASKILLS09] ================ At Gangster level (200) you get better lock on range, accuracy, rate of fire, and strafe speed. Also, you can move while in aiming stance. At Hitman level (1000) you can fire while moving. G10. Shotgun [GTASASKILLS10] ============ At Gangster level (200) you get better lock on range, accuracy, rate of fire, and strafe speed. Also, you can move while in aiming stance. At Hitman level (1000) you can duel wield the weapon (one in each hand). G11. Sawn-off Shotgun [GTASASKILLS11] ===================== At Gangster level (200) you get better lock on range, accuracy, rate of fire, and strafe speed. Also, you can move while in aiming stance. At Hitman level (1000) you can fire while moving. G12. Combat Shotgun [GTASASKILLS12] =================== At Gangster level (200) you get better lock on range, accuracy, rate of fire, and strafe speed. Also, you can move while in aiming stance. At Hitman level (1000) you can fire while moving. G13. Machine Pistol [GTASASKILLS13] =================== This skill applies to the Tec-9 and Micro-MP5 machine pistols. At Gangster level (100) you get better lock on range, accuracy, rate of fire, and strafe speed. Also, you can move while in aiming stance. At Hitman level (1000) you can duel wield the weapon (one in each hand). G14. SMG [GTASASKILLS14] ======== This skill applies to the MP5 submachine gun. At Gangster level (300) you get better lock on range, accuracy, rate of fire, and strafe speed. Also, you can move while in aiming stance. At Hitman level (1000) you can fire while moving. G15. AK47 [GTASASKILLS15] ========= At Gangster level (300) you get better lock on range, accuracy, rate of fire, and strafe speed. Also, you can move while in aiming stance. At Hitman level (1000) you can fire while moving. G16. M4 [GTASASKILLS16] ======= At Gangster level (200) you get better lock on range, accuracy, rate of fire, and strafe speed. Also, you can move while in aiming stance. At Hitman level (1000) you can fire while moving. /XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\ 0==========================================0 | H. Los Santos and Red County (Beginning) | [GTASALSRCTOP] 0==========================================0 \XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/ H1. City Overview [GTASALSRCOV] ================= Welcome to Los Santos. The first thing you should know is that a major earthquake has recently occurred. While damage to the city was minimal, all bridges out of the county were affected, and leaving the county has temporarily been declared illegal for the protection of all citizens. Any violation of this rule will immediately result in a four star wanted level. Residents of Los Santos are strongly advised to stay within the confines of the city limits and Red County. To the far southeast are the ocean docks, where large ships load and unload their cargo. Directly west of the docks is the Los Santos International Airport, the fourth busiest airport in the world. To the northwest of the airport is Verdant Bluffs, home of the historic Los Santos Observatory. West of Verdant Bluffs is Verona and Santa Maria Beach, a must see for sun worshipers, and home of the Boardwalk and Los Santos Lighthouse. North of the beaches you will find the posh districts of Rodeo, Marina, and Vinewood. North of Vinewood are the even more exclusive Richman and Mulholland estates. Downtown Los Santos and the City Hall can be found in the center of the city. To the east is Glen Park, heart of Balla territory. Further to the east you will find Los Flores, where the Vagos hang out. The Los Santos Stadium can be located on the southeastern side of the city, near the Eastern Beach. Nearby is Ganton, the area that CJ calls home. Beyond the city limits to the north are the rural towns of Blueberry, Dillimore, Montgomery, and Palomino Creek nestled among the farms. To the far west is the Panopticon, a hilly area with windy roads. H2. 100% Completion List [GTASALSRC100] ======================== Here are the things we will be doing in Los Santos and Red County that are required for the 100% completion score: Story Missions: From "Big Smoke" (The Beginning Strand) to "The Green Sabre" (The Sweet Strand). Complete the BMX Challenge. Complete the Commerce 24-7 Courier Asset Mission. Spray 100 Graffiti Tags. Collect Oysters (15 out of 50). Complete the Los Santos Forum Arena Event (8-Track). Purchase six available Safe houses (plus your free one, you'll end up with seven total save points in this city by the time you leave). The Ambulance Vehicle Mission. The Taxi Vehicle Mission. The Pimping Vehicle Mission. The Firefighter Vehicle Mission. The first two Challenges at Ammu-Nation. Upgrade your Muscle past the Buff stage and learn new moves from the gym trainer. H3. Other Activities [GTASALSRCOTHER] ==================== These are the things we will be doing in Los Santos and Red County that don't contribute to the 100% completion score. We will do them for the sake of completeness. Some of them impart game play benefits, while others are just for fun. Unique Jumps (28 out of 70). Girlfriends (Denise Robinson). Pool. Basketball. Video Games (4). The Burglary Vehicle Mission. Bars and Strip Clubs. Inside Track Betting. H4. Dramatis Personae [GTASALSRCDP] ===================== (In order of appearance) Carl Johnson (CJ) - This is your character. Officer Frank Tenpenny \ Officer Eddie Polaski > Police officers, they "greet" you when you get in Officer Hernandez / Big Smoke - An old friend and fellow Grove Street gang member, now moved out of the Grove, but not too far away. Sweet Johnson - Your brother, lives next door to where your mom used to live. Kendl Johnson - Your sister. Ryder - Another long time friend that lives on Grove Street. Cesar Vialpando - Your sister's boyfriend. OG Loc - Another homie, he's been busted, but is due out soon. Denise Robinson - Your first girlfriend. H5. Walkthrough [GTASALSRCWALKTOP] =============== The start of the game appears very much like a mission, with the program directing you to do certain things. Technically, you are not actually on a mission at all, so you can feel free to ignore the suggestions and do a little exploring, if you like. There are a number of things you could do right now, but I'm going to hold off doing them until later on for the very simple reason that you don't yet have access to your save games at this point. Once we can save the game, we'll do a few of side missions. When you are done exploring, head for the CJ icon on your radar (you can also find it on the main map). When you get to your house and step into the red marker, your first real mission will start. Big Smoke [GTASALSRCWALK01] --------- Map Icon - CJ [The Beginning Strand] Prereqs - None Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.00% (0.00% Total) Unlocks - None This is a cut scene mission; you don't do anything except watch. Basically, it introduces you to Big Smoke, an old friend. The second mission immediately follows. Sweet and Kendl [GTASALSRCWALK02] --------------- Map Icon - None (this mission immediately follows "Big Smoke") [The Beginning Strand] Prereqs - None Rewards - Respect (3), the Johnson House Completion Percentage - 0.53% (0.53% Total) Unlocks - Ryder Mission, BMX Challenge Hop on the bike and follow Sweet. While it's a bit hard to follow your brother, keep out of the firing line of the Balla car, and read the tips all at the same time, do your best. The most important tip is about quick tapping the forward key (W) to sprint. The Balla car will tend to stay to your left, so if it's giving you trouble, brush it off by drifting left and causing it to hit fences, pedestrians, and so on. As you come into the parking lot, you can even get it to hit the shack and cause it a lot of damage. Soon you'll split up and you'll follow Ryder back home. Once you get there and ride into the marker, the mission is over and you have access to your first safe house (the Johnson House). Put the BMX into the garage, as we're going to use it in just a minute, and head inside to save. Explore around the house if you like. In addition to the save marker, there's a wardrobe upstairs (the yellow marker) and a camera (which you don't really need at the moment, but you should be aware that it's there). The Ryder mission opened up next door, but before we do that, we need to do something about our finances. Tenpenny didn't leave us with much. So grab your BMX from the garage and start pedaling west. Follow the road as it turns south, then go west again when it ends. Once you hit the Commerce District (and head under the freeway overpass), start watching to your left for the Roboi's Food Mart. There's a yellow marker in front of the door and another BMX parked outside. Go inside the Mart and we'll hit the first optional part of the walkthrough, a couple of video games. Duality (Video Game 1) - OPTIONAL [GTASALSRCWALK03] --------------------------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - None Rewards - High Score Completion Percentage - 0.00% (0.53% Total) Unlocks - None In Duality, you can either score black or white, and each has its own set of high scores. If you are going for black, shoot the large white orbs and collect the small black orbs to increase your score. Shooting the black orbs or collecting the white orbs will decrease your score. If you are going for white, the exact opposite is true. If you touch a large black orb, your health drops. If you touch a large white orb, your health goes up. The game ends when your health reaches zero. They Crawled From Uranus (Video Game 2) - OPTIONAL [GTASALSRCWALK04] -------------------------------------------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - None Rewards - High Score Completion Percentage - 0.00% (0.53% Total) Unlocks - None This game is kind of like Tempest. Enemy ships appear in the center in waves. You circle around the edge of the screen firing away. If you shoot all the ships in a wave, they drop a bonus blob you can catch for an extra 100 points. Courier [GTASALSRCWALK05] ------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - None Rewards - Roboi Mart Asset ($2000 per day) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (1.07% Total) Unlocks - None If you are not already inside the Roboi Mart, go in, there's something you need to see. To the right (as you go in), just past the video games is a Sprunk machine. Drinking Sprunk will increase your health, if you should be wounded. On the other side of the store is a snack machine, which will come in handy if you get hungry (since the restaurants aren't open yet). I mention this because we are about to do the Courier asset mission. It can take a while to get used to using the bike, and the first time I did it, hunger definitely became an issue. Head out of the Mart and look to your right. You should see another BMX. Get on to start up this side mission. The deal is to deliver some set number of packages in a certain time limit, and there are four levels. I found levels 1 and 3 to be very easy, while 2 and 4 were a bit more challenging. You may fail this mission a few times while you get used to riding the bike and using the Q and E keys (not to mention learning the best course to take), but it gets easier with practice. There are two keys to winning this mission. One, use the quick-tap W to sprint up hills and on straight-aways. Two, use the big map to plan your route (especially on level 4, where the deliveries are spread out all over Los Santos). I'll leave it up to you to plan out your routes; it's not rocket science. But I will give a couple of tips for the fourth level, where the packages are spread out all over the city. You're first stop should be the boardwalk (to the west, it's the one at the end of the road). There are lots of straight shots, so make sure to sprint. Once you get that one delivered, and are heading north back up the boardwalk, be sure to drop off to the right down the stairs. Do NOT continue on the road up the hill. If you do this, you'll waste a lot of time trying to circle back to reach the drop off point at the lighthouse. Instead drop down the stairs to the right at the end of the boardwalk and go underneath it. From there it's a straight shot west to the next point (but stay off the sand as it'll slow you down). Then head back north to the main street and move through the city in a clockwise direction. The general route should be fairly obvious. Once you complete all four levels, the Roboi's Mart becomes an asset, building up $2000 per day. Remember to stop by every once in a while to collect your money (the icon appears in front of the store). By the way, you can do this courier mission as many times as you like. It's an easy (but entirely game-legal) way to build up some money in the early stages of the game. I've found I can make 1.5K on level 1, 1K on level 2, and 3-5K (!) on level 3. I don't generally bother with level 4 as it takes too long and doesn't pay all that well for the amount of time put into it (if I make 2K on it, I'm doing real well). We've improved our financial situation enough to do the next story mission, but as long as we're on the bike (and hopefully have a fairly decent Cycling skill now), let's go finish up the BMX Challenge. BMX Challenge [GTASALSRCWALK06] ------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - 20% Cycling Skill, Sweet and Kendl Mission Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.53% (1.60% Total) Unlocks - None Before heading to the park, we're going to make a side trip. Head south to the Ocean Docks. What we are after is a Packer, which is a big truck with an empty car carrier (it is essentially a big moving ramp), and there are lots of them around the dock area (at least during business hours, if you get there at night, it may be a bit harder). Once you've grabbed a Packer, drive it north to Glen Park (it's the big park area in the center-right of the map). The BMX Challenge is south of the actual park (it's a couple blocks to the south if you drive along the western edge). There is an L-shaped cement depression in the middle, and two wooden half pipes. You may recognize the challenge area, since you rode through it in the "Sweet and Kendl" mission. Now, you want to position the truck such that the ramp will let you jump onto the wooden half pipe platform (this is the wooden half pipe near the entrance, not the one on the hill). I found it's easiest to face the ramp so that you are coming down off the hill where the other half pipe is. This gives you good speed for your jump (if you have a spare BMX around, you may want to practice a bit to make sure you have the truck positioned properly). I'm now going to save you a lot of grief. By default, the bunny hop key is the Left Control key. This is no good (if you can control steering, sprinting, and bunny hoping with one hand, you're better at this game than I am). Go into the options menu and into Controls. Under Driving Controls, switch the right mouse button (which is currently set for Mouse Look) and the Left Control button. This puts your bunny hop control on the right mouse button, making your hop timing a whole heck of a lot easier. Once you feel you have everything set up correctly, get on the BMX bike that is sitting on the hill. Immediately turn to your left to grab the first corona (although it looks like it is elevated, you don't need to bunny hop, you can just ride through it). Immediately do a short bunny hop to grab the second corona at the bottom of the hill, and continue forward to get the corona just in front of you (at the edge of the cement half pipe, don't fall in!). At this point I work my way around the outside of the cement half pipe counterclockwise grabbing everything I can (ignoring the wooden half pipes for now). If you do this, the last corona you get should put you at the fence near the southwest corner. Now it's time to handle the coronas inside the cement half pipe. We'll get the hard one first, which is the elevated corona at the northern side of the pipe. You can't get this one by bunny hoping inside the pipe; you have to get it from outside. Line up against the eastern fence so it is in front of you and sprint toward it. There is no need to bunny hop (the lip of the half pipe will give you just enough lift to grab the corona). You'll now be inside the pipe, where you can get the remaining coronas by bunny hoping and sprinting (the one on the southeastern edge is a little tricky, you need to sprint at it to have the speed to get up the wall, or you could get it from the outside if you ride very close to the edge of the drop). That leaves only the three coronas on the wooden half pipes. Hopefully you have enough time built up at this point that you don't need to panic. Head up the hill and get in the pipe. These two are actually fairly easy; you just need to keep moving in an oval pattern, building up height, until you get high enough to grab the two coronas. One left. Come down off the hill and sprint to the ramp you set up. If you positioned the truck properly, you should fly through the final corona, winning the challenge (note that I usually don't actually get on the platform, I hit the bottom of it, but the game credits the corona anyway). If you fail the challenge, you now have a chance to do a little practicing without the bother of the timer. This is especially useful for setting up the truck and making sure you can get onto that platform. When you are done practicing, you can simply park the bike about where you started, get off, then get back on, and the challenge will restart (convenient!) For some of the bunny hops (especially the one in the eastern part of the cement half pipe), you are going to need a pretty high cycling skill (at least 80%), and your fat level has to be reasonably low. If your skill isn't high enough, ride around a bit, as it doesn't take long to build up. Better yet, run the courier mission again and make a bit of money while you're improving your skill. The cycling skill is a function of distance ridden. In this early part of the game, I often had trouble keeping the truck spawned. If it despawns on you, you'll just have to go get another one. Note that, in theory, it is possible to get that last corona by using the same oval riding technique to get on top of the platform. I have NEVER been able to accomplish this, no matter what combination of sprinting, leaning, and bunny hopping I try. Never. Not even just in practice, never mind when there is a timer running. If you can pull this off, you're a better person than I am. You probably ran this challenge a few times, so once you complete it, ride back home and save your progress. Pimping [GTASALSRCWALK07] ------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - None Rewards - The girls pay you instead of you paying them Completion Percentage - 0.54% (2.14% Total) Unlocks - None Before we start up this vehicle mission, let's get heated up. As you exit your house, you will see a grayish-blue house to the right (it's the third house down from yours). Head into its backyard on the left side (not the basketball court, your other left). Follow the back wall to a corner where you will find a pistol. Now follow the back wall the other way until you reach a gap that let's you get into the drainage canal. Turn left and head down the ramp. Under the bridge in front of you, you will find armor. Now turn around and head back to the next bridge (that was behind you when you came down the ramp). Under there is a Micro-MP5. Remember where these three items are, and pick them up as needed during the game. Okay, we're all ready for our first vehicle mission. We'll do an easy one first. We need a Broadway, and fortunately, there is one just waiting for us not too far away. Head back to the house and pick up a bike or a car, and drive west. Follow the road when it turns south, and turn west when it dead-ends. Up ahead you should see a car wash behind which sits your Broadway. Hop in and hit the 2 key to start up the mission. The only time limit you have is when you are dropping off your girl to meet her customer. Otherwise, you are free to take as long as you like picking them up. What few time limits you have are pretty generous. So concentrate on keeping your Broadway in good shape, and visit the Pay-n-Spray when needed. If a John refuses to pay or gets rough with your girl, just run him down or get out of the car and shoot him in the head. Collect any money he may have dropped and hop back into the car. Once you reach level 10 you are done with this mission. Taxi Driver [GTASALSRCWALK08] ----------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - None Rewards - Nitro on all Taxis Completion Percentage - 0.53% (2.67% Total) Unlocks - None Okay, one more before we get back into the story line. Grab a taxi, you can find them just about anywhere. Hit the 2 key to start up the mission. You aren't going to make a whole lot of money on this mission (compared with Pimping, for example), but it's another step toward 100%, and it'll improve your driving skill, so we may as well do it now. Just grab a fare, take them where they want to go, rinse and repeat. If your taxi gets to beat up, be sure to stop off at the Pay-n-Spray to get it fixed up. There is no requirement that you do all 50 fares in one go, but the more you do in a row the more money you will make (every 5 you do in a row gives you a bonus, which starts out small but can really build up). It's a little tedious to do all 50 here, but the time limits are pretty generous and you'll get to learn the city layout a little better. You've probably also raised your driving skill a bit. Ryder [GTASALSRCWALK09] ----- Map Icon - R [The Beginning Strand] Prereqs - Sweet and Kendl Rewards - Respect (3) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (3.21% Total) Unlocks - Tagging up Turf Mission, Barber shops, Restaurants, Tattoo parlors Okay, you should have a pretty decent bankroll now (I had about 35K at this point). That ought to be enough to get a haircut and something to eat. Head for the R icon and talk to Ryder. At the barber, get whichever cut you like (the cornrow is the best since it gives you the highest respect and sex appeal boost, in fact, it's the highest in the game, so if you get that one, you really never have to get another cut again). After a brief conversation with Ryder, you'll be getting something to eat across the street. This basically is an introduction to eating (though you've probably been eating snacks up to this point, you can now actually go inside several restaurants). Don't eat too much or you'll throw up and lose the benefits you gained from the food (you can eat up to 11 meals a day). Ryder comes in a makes a mess of things, so jump back into the car and return to the hood. Tattoos [GTASALSRCWALK10] ------- Map Icon - Fancy T Prereqs - Ryder Rewards - Increased Sex Appeal Completion Percentage - 0.00% (3.21% Total) Unlocks - None This is not a mission or anything. We're going to raise CJ's sex appeal and respect a bit by tatting him up. Head to any parlor (they are marked by an odd looking symbol on the map which I think is supposed to be a fancy T). Go in (it makes no difference which one you go into) and get markings everywhere you can. Which ones you get are of no matter, as they all give the same bonuses. Unlike in real life, you can change or remove any of your tats at will (as long as you have the money). Tagging Up Turf [GTASALSRCWALK11] --------------- Map Icon - S [The Sweet Strand] Prereqs - Ryder Rewards - $200, Respect (3) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (3.74% Total) Unlocks - Cleaning the Hood Mission, Gang Tags, Spray Can in Johnson House Time to get out your Tags Map. Hop in the car and head for the marker. Sweet will spray the first tag by way of showing you how it's done, after which you will spray the second and third (these are #1-3 on the map). Then it's back in the car to get #4-6. Just follow the directions the game gives you. Get back to the car and return home, mission done. (Technically, the gang tags were already open for you to spray from the start of the game, but as they were officially introduced with this mission, we'll start doing them now). The game gives you 1000 ammo for your spraying enjoyment after the Tagging mission, but let's add a bit to that. A spray can is now upstairs in the bedroom of your house for your use. That'll add another 1000 sprays. When you come out of your house, run past your garage toward the back yard. Climb up onto the short wall and from there onto the roof of your garage. Jump up to your house roof and turn south, where you will see the flat roof of the pawnshop. Drop down to it, and you'll find yet another spray can worth 500. You should now have 2500 shots in your spray can, not too shabby. Gang Tags, Part 1 [GTASALSRCWALK12] ----------------- Prereqs - None Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.00% (3.74% Total) Unlocks - None You have another 94 tags to spray, but I'm not going to go through all of them right now. After about the 40th tag, it starts to feel a lot like work, so we'll do a few at a time so they don't get real old real fast. Although I will try to give driving directions in most cases, you really should be able to get to the general area by using the map. You did print out the gang tags map I recommended at the top of this guide, didn't you? If you haven't, print it out now, I'll wait. We'll start at tag 39, so head south toward the docs and hit the road along the west side. When you get there, run down the stairs, you'll find the tag on a crate facing the water. Now drive back north and take the second left so you are going northwest. You will find tag 38 where this road meets the highway, it's on the northwest side of the main road, pretty easy to find. From here, go northwest to tag 40. You should spot it on the northwest building behind the chain link fence. The tricky thing about tag 40 is that you need a bit of elevation. So park a car underneath it and hop onto the hood (or roof) to reach the tag. Go northeast up the road, and then take the next right, we need to get onto the bridge that runs over to the docs. At the first bridge tower, stop, you will see the tag (#37) on the support to your left. That's 10 tags done. All right, let's go catch a few on the southeast side. Follow the road northwest and turn to the northeast at your next right. The road will curve east and you'll go over a bridge that spans the drainage ditch. As soon as you come off the bridge, make a U-turn so that you are driving under the bridge you just came off of (it should be to your right). Stop at the ditch. Run down into the culvert, you will see the tag (#36) on a bridge support in the middle. Run back up the ditch wall to your car, we'll hit tag #34 next. It's a bit north of the barbershop icon on a wall surrounding a power relay station. You should have no problem finding this one. Turn around and head south to the end of the road. At the intersection you will see tag #35 on a wall to the west. Follow the road going east and curve to the north. Take the first left and stop when you reach the end of the basketball court. Hop out of the car and run along the court (to it's west), you'll see tag #33 on the wall of the apartment complex. You should have 14 tags done now. As long as we're here, let's take a little break. Basketball - OPTIONAL [GTASALSRCWALK13] --------------------- Prereqs - None Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.00% (3.74% Total) Unlocks - None Pick up the ball on the court (sometimes the ball isn't spawned. If this is the case, drive around the block and come back until it shows up). Hold down the middle mouse button for a second or so to start the challenge mode. The idea is to hit as many points as you can before time expires, and you shoot from the markers. As the game tells you, hold down the space bar to shoot, and release at the top of your jump for the best accuracy. When you are done, press return to exit. There's no reward (that I'm aware of) for this challenge, it's just for fun. Gang Tags, Part 2 [GTASALSRCWALK14] ----------------- Prereqs - None Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.00% (3.74% Total) Unlocks - None Back to the tags. Head for tag #32 (turn around and go back to the north-south road). The tag is on the rock wall in front of the apartments on the west side. It's a bit hard to see since it's on rock, but look for the blue Bravura parked in one of the driveways, the tag is pretty close to it. Right across the street is a stairway heading down to the beach. Go down it and follow the wall to the north, and you'll hit tag #30. Remember the apartments whose wall you just tagged? On the north side you'll run across tag #31. Next we'll hit tag #29 on the stadium wall. It's pretty much right where the map shows it to be, so just head in that general direction and you should find it with no problem. Continue north on the main highway, and when you reach the pedestrian over- cross, turn left into the alley. Follow the building and you should run into tag #13. On the next block north is a parking garage. Just inside the entrance, on the eastern wall you will see tag #12. By the way, on the second level of this same garage is an NRG-500 motorcycle, the world's fastest bike. Remember where this is, as we'll be using that bike for unique jumps a little later on. At this point I have roughly 1000 sprays left. Head north on the highway again and we'll catch tag #9. Watch for the apartments on your left with the green garage doors. Climb onto the roof (you can get there from the northern side), run south until you drop down to the next level and turn around to find the tag. Head north again. Just before you reach the bridge, pull in to your left (you may see a yellow marker in here; it leads to Colonel Fuhrberger's house, which you'll be going into later). The tag (#8) is to the south, on the northern wall of the apartment. Okay, one more. Go north again. After the bridge, pull into the driveway on your left. The tag (#7) is in the entryway of the high-rise (I presume it's a hotel), you should spot it with no problem. At this point you're probably down to 500 sprays or so, and we've caught 23 tags. Let's take a break. Grab some food if you need it, head back for the home front, and save the game. Cleaning the Hood [GTASALSRCWALK15] ----------------- Map Icon - S [The Sweet Strand] Prereqs - Tagging Up Turf Rewards - Respect (3) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (4.28% Total) Unlocks - Drive-Thru Mission Let's advance the story a bit. Grab your armor and weapons and head for the S marker. Sweet is not happy about the drug situation. Go see what's what with Ryder. Take down a pusher, and then the crack den. That ought to clean things up a bit. Drive-Thru [GTASALSRCWALK16] ---------- Map Icon - S [The Sweet Strand] Prereqs - Cleaning the Hood Rewards - $200, Respect (5) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (4.81% Total) Unlocks - Nines and AKs Mission, Gyms It starts out well enough; y'all are just going to get a bite to eat. What could possibly go wrong? Yeah. Naturally, it turns bad pretty quick. I hope you have your Micro-MP5 handy so you can do some drive by shooting during the upcoming battle. Concentrate on keeping up with the Balla car so your homies can take shots, and help out where you can with the shooting. Once the Ballas bail don't bother trying to shoot them down, just run 'em over. Drop off Ryder and Sweet, and then drive Smoke home. Return to the hood and save. Grab your two paint cans so we can go do a few more tags. At some point during this Sweet ought to give you a call and tell you to buff up. This opens up the gyms around town. The Gym - SEMI-OPTIONAL [GTASALSRCWALK17] ----------------------- Map Icon - Dumbbells Prereqs - Drive-Thru Rewards - Increased Strength, Increased Stamina, Reduced Fat Completion Percentage - 0.00% (4.81% Total) Grab a car and drive west until you see the dumbbell icon. Go into the gym and lift some dumbbells or do some bench presses to increase your strength. The more weight you pick, the faster you'll buff up, but the harder it will be to do each rep. Start off with something in the middle, don't try to go for the max right at the start. You can also use the treadmill (or stationary bike) to increase your stamina. Although we won't be able to do it all in one session (there's a per day limit on what you can do at the gym), our goal is to max out both our strength and stamina. What I will do is alternate gym visits, tag sprays, and a couple of missions per day for a while. This should keep any particular activity from getting too tedious. Make sure to save at least once per game day so you don't lose too much progress if your power goes out or something. For doing replicates, the game tells you to use the space key and the left mouse button. Forget the mouse, use the left control key instead, it's a lot easier to use two keyboard buttons than it is to try and use the space key and mouse. Once you hit your limit for the day, head out and let's get on with a few more tags. Gang Tags, Part 3 [GTASALSRCWALK18] ----------------- Prereqs - None Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.00% (4.81% Total) Unlocks - None We're already right next to tag 25, just run around behind the gym in the alley, and you should spot the target easily enough. Drive east until you see the bridge north (you'll be close to your house). Get out of the car and check under the bridge for tag 24. Drive south just past the Cluckin' Bell, and take a left at the intersection. When you hit the 6th street plaza (on your right), pull in to find tag 28. Return to the Cluckin' Bell and you'll find tag #26 on the southern wall. Go another half block south again, and you'll find tag #27 on the southern wall of a dime store (it's on the street that has a house icon showing on the map). From this road, drive straight west (you'll drive down an alley). When you hit the next street, turn left (southeast). Take your first right, cross the train tracks, and take another right so that you are driving along the side of the culvert. Stop where the culvert goes underground (under a big pile of compost (?)). Run into the culvert and check out right side of the tunnel entrance for tag #41. Abandon your car and run north by northwest (you'll weave through the garbage and hit a gap in the fence). We're after tag #47 now, and it's in the parking lot of the small strip mall on the corner of the two streets in that direction. From the corner market, head north and take a left once you see the Well Stacked Pizza place on your right. About halfway down the street, you should spot the tag (#51) on the north side of the street on a grating. Turn back around and return to the Well Stacked Pizza. Take a left and then your first right. Turn into the motel parking lot (you have to pass the motel), and you'll tag 52 on the wall of the building. Exit the hotel parking lot and drive west a couple of blocks until you see a gas station on the left. The west side of the gas station has a car wash. Look on the car wash roof and you'll spot tag #50. To reach the roof, you will have to park a car next to the wall to get the height you need to reach the eave. Return to the road going west. At the next intersection, look at the building on the northwest corner (it's a pink building surrounded by a green wall). Head through the gap in the wall, and you should run right into tag #54. At this point you may be running low on ammo. If so, run back home and restock another 1500 shots, we'll do 10 more tags this time around and call it a day. From the previous tag go west. Just before the next intersection stop and you should see tag 53 on a building to the south. Go back east again to the intersection (near tag 54) and turn south. You want to stop less than a block later, when you reach the culvert. There will be a gap in the wall to your left. Face the culvert and you'll see tag 49 below in the culvert. Once you hit it, you have to get back to where you were. Run east, and when the culvert splits, follow it southeast. The wall here is slightly less steep, and you can run up it, and then hop over the wall. Return to where you left your car (to the northwest). Drive south and when you see the 69-cent mart, pull into the parking lot. You should also see a liquor mart. The tag (48) is on a graffiti covered wall on the south side of the liquor mart. Continue on the road south, and then follow it as it turns east. As soon as the green fence ends, turn south to the train tracks. There is a chain link fence right in front of you. Crash through it, then stop. On one of the grey apartments above the door you will run across tag 46. Once again, you'll need to use the roof of your car to get some height for this one. Drive south and then east when you reach the road. At the intersection, check the wall of the bar on the northwest corner for tag 45. Drive south from the intersection until you see the Nude XXX Shop. Tag 42 is on the southern wall (it's a bit hard to see the orange tag against the pink wall, but it's there). Catch the road to the south and drive west. The next tag (#43) is right on the north side of the road on a fence (just past the intersection). After getting that tag, return to the intersection you just passed and go north. Watch to your left, tag #44 is on the side of a grey house just a block up. Okay, let's hit the airport. Drive south then west to get back to the tag on the fence you just did. Cut across the median to the airport road, and as soon as the building to your south ends, turn south across another median (we're trying to get to the central airport terminal). You'll find tag 99 on the south side of the terminal building. From here, drive south across the grass again to hit the outer airport road, and follow it west. Go through the loop-de-loop, and catch the highway going south. It curves to the east. Stop right at the point where the road begins to descend in preparation for going through the tunnel. You have to get out of your car at this point and walk along the southern sidewalk (you will get higher and higher above the road). When you reach the tunnel wall you will be in front of tag #100. Okay, that's another 21 tags down (you should have 44 tags finished in total), and you've completed the entire southeastern section of the city. Head back to the hood and save the game. Nines and AKs [GTASALSRCWALK19] ------------- Map Icon - S [The Sweet Strand] Prereqs - Drive-Thru Rewards - Respect (4) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (5.35% Total) Unlocks - Drive By Mission, OG Loc Mission, Binco Clothing, ProLaps Clothing, Suburban Clothing This barely qualifies as a mission; it's more just an introduction to weapons (as if you need it) and clothing. Do some target practicing, take Smoke home, then do a bit of shopping. If you want to raise your respect and sex appeal as much as possible, get an Eris T-shirt, Green Jeans, a Green Rag Back, an Africa pendant, and Hi-Top Sneaks. Then return home. Drive By [GTASALSRCWALK20] -------- Map Icon - S [The Sweet Strand] Prereqs - Nines and AKs Rewards - $500, Respect (6) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (5.88% Total) Unlocks - Sweet's Girl Mission, Home Invasion Mission This is a little more like it. You can make this mission easier on yourself by just running down the enemy. The homies ought to get anyone you miss. Make another pass if you need to. When you're done, make a run for the Pay-n-Spray to lose those two stars, and then head back to the hood. Sweet's Girl [GTASALSRCWALK21] ------------ Map Icon - S [The Sweet Strand] Prereqs - Drive By Rewards - Respect (7) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (6.42% Total) Unlocks - Cesar Vialpando Mission We'll do one more since the first mission wasn't really much of one to talk about. All of the sudden you seem to have quite a few choices for mission sponsors, but let's stick with Sweet for now. Make sure you have armor, a gun, and a car, as you don't have a lot of time to go fetch this stuff once the mission starts up. Fire up the mission, and head for the marker. Make things a bit easier on yourself by running over as many of the enemy as you can in one pass, then get out, crouch, and start taking head shots. Once you drop all the bad guys, grab a four door. Once Sweet and his lady get in, head for the home front. You've got a car on your tail, but you should be able to avoid it, and it gives up after not too long. Save the game. By now, you should be on the next day, so return to the gym and buff up a little more until you hit your limit for the day (if you've already maxed out muscle, work on endurance, or visa versa). Use a bit higher weights or settings than you used before, since you're stronger now. When you're done with that, grab a bite to eat (if you need to, it's a good idea to keep your fat up around 10 or 20% so you have a buffer for when you get hungry. If you have no fat, you will start losing muscle instead!). Gang Tags, Part 4 [GTASALSRCWALK22] ----------------- Prereqs - None Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.00% (6.42% Total) Unlocks - None Now return to the hood and grab your spray cans, time to polish off a few more tags. Head west out of the hood and take your first right over the bridge, then your second right (past the Mexican food restaurant). At the next intersection, look ahead and to your right for a gap in the wall into a parking lot. When you enter, check the wall to your left for tag 23. Continue up the parking lot as it goes north, and take a right onto the street going east. As the street curves north, you should take an immediate left into a car wash. Watch to the left for a little tunnel, inside of which you will find tag 22. Get back onto the road and continue north. When you see the banner that spans the street take a left into an alley. As it turns the corner, you will find you've hit the jackpot, as tags 20 and 21 are both right in front of you. Back out of the alley and continue up the street north. Just before the intersection, look to your right, tag 16 is on the wall. Continue north through the intersection, and take a right when the street ends. Stop and go through a gap in the bushes on the right, you will see tag 17 on the wall of some apartments (congratulations, that was your 50th tag, halfway there). Continue on the road east, and turn north when it ends, following this main road north and then west. When this road ends, you will be facing some brown houses and some blue ones to the left. Tag 19 is between the brown and blue house. Get back in the car, turn around and go back down the street you just came from. As you turn south, just after the bridge is the Golden Palms. Head into the entryway to its north and follow it behind the building east. You should see an armor pickup (useful). Hop over the wall and you'll see tag 10. Return to the road and drive south past the next intersection. Watch to your left for tag 11 on the wall of one of the buildings (it's a bit hard to see as the tag is orange on an tan wall, but the building address is 2026). Continue south down the road and take your first right. This puts you on a short windy road. Watch to your right for tag 14. Continue to the end of the road and when it ends, take note of the building in front of you. Follow it around back (go to your left and down the stairs) to find tag 15. If you need more ammo, now's a good time to go get it, we'll hit a few more before going back to the story missions. We're going to start at tag 62. From your hood, go west, then north over the first bridge. Continue on that road until it ends. Enter the alley between the shop and the wall you'll find the tag on the south side of the wall. Continue north out of the alley and go left onto the street. Make a right at the intersection. The third building on your right has an underground garage, look for tag 63 on the wall. Return to the street (either exit) and go north. When the road ends, turn east. Head up the incline, and stop when you see the stairs to your left. Go forward slowly on the street and watch to your left, about half way between where the wall started and the overpasses is tag 18. It's pretty hard to see (orange on orange) so watch carefully. Turn back around and drive west. When you reach the train tracks, look to your north where the tracks go into a tunnel to find tag 69. Just across the street you will see an orange building, which is the Jefferson Motel. The tag (#64) is on the back of the motel; you'll have to hop a fence to get to it. Continue west on the street you are on, it will shortly split in three directions. Take the middle road. Watch to your right until you see two palm trees. Stop there, tag #68 is on the stair wall. Go back to the split and take the steep road that goes north. Turn right at the end of it. Stop at the last house on the left (before the trailers). You will find tag 70 on the back wall. Now turn around and follow the road west. Just before it bends south, look for an alley to your left between a tan and blue house, where you will find tag 71. Okay, enough tags for now (you should have 63 now, another couple of passes and we'll be done with them). Go back to the house and save, and we'll see what Smoke is up to. Cesar Vialpando [GTASALSRCWALK23] --------------- Map Icon - S [The Sweet Strand] Prereqs - Sweet's Girl Rewards - Wager Winnings Completion Percentage - 0.53% (6.95% Total) Unlocks - High Stakes, Low Rider Mission, TransFender, Locos Low Co. It seems Sweet isn't overly thrilled with Kendl's boyfriend, and he wants you to check it out. Go get a low-rider (one is provided for you), and modify it however you like (but don't go too crazy, you are going to need your cash soon, and chances are you won't be keeping this car very long anyway), then head over to the car meet (but don't get in the red marker yet). This is one of those areas where the game doesn't really tell you what controls to use. So before you start up the actual mission, you may want to practice a bit. The number pad arrows will control your car's suspension. When you get into the challenge, just hit the appropriate key as its icon comes into the circle. From time to time, a diagonal icon will appear. You need to press two buttons to get the correct response (e.g. 4+8 for upper left, not the diagonal numpad key (1, 3, 7 or 9) as you may think). Once you win, there's a near confrontation, but Cesar cools things down. Maybe he's not such a bad guy after all. High Stakes, Low Rider [GTASALSRCWALK24] ---------------------- Map Icon - CV [The Sweet Strand] Prereqs - Cesar Vialpando Rewards - $1000 Completion Percentage - 0.54% (7.49% Total) Unlocks - None (but required to complete Reuniting the Families) Yay, a race! Follow Cesar to the starting point. The low-rider doesn't handle well around the corners, so make sure to slow down coming into the turns, and floor it in the straight-aways. As long as you don't spin out, winning this race shouldn't be too tough, as the other drivers tend to crash quite a bit. If needed, tap the rear panel of the car in front of you to make it spin out (just don't lose control yourself). If you do lose, just return to Cesar's hood to try again. If you need a new car, there are a couple of low riders on the street you can grab for the race. Go back to the hood and save. Grab your spray cans, as we gear up for another installment of: Gang Tags, Part 5 [GTASALSRCWALK25] ----------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - None Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.00% (7.49% Total) Unlocks - None As usual, before we start doing tags, run over to the gym and upgrade your strength and stamina. When you've hit your limit, drive back north to Grove Street, and take a left (going west). When you cross the tracks, take your second left (it's a little street, there will be a bunch of grey houselets to your left). Stop and run in through the alley in the middle, and then through the archway to the south, tag #58 will be to your left on the east wall. Hop back in the car and drive south. See the bridge to your right? Once you can, make a u-turn and get on it driving north. When you come to the large tan building on your left stop. You'll find tag 60 on the wall of this building (the wall facing the street you were just on, it's a bit covered in plant life). Jump back in your car and go north, taking your first right. Look for an alley going south (this is where you started the game). As you go down the alley, watch to your left, you should spot tag #59. Come back out of the alley to the north. When you hit the street, look to your northeast, where you should see a church. You'll find tag 61 on the southern wall of the church. Drive west from the church and take the first right going north. Drive through the first intersection, and start looking for an alley to the left. Tag 65 will be at the end of the northern fence. Continue north out of the alley and take a left (Glen Park will be to your left). Go into the alley just behind the Discount Warehouse, you'll find tag #66 on the wall of the warehouse to your south. Go back out of the alley and turn north. When the road ends, you will see an alley between a blue and red house. The tag (#67) is on the wall of the blue house (this should be your 70th tag). Come back out of the alley to the south and drive west. When you pass the next intersection, you will see some tan duplexes on the south side of the street (they are surrounded by chain link fences). Go into the third duplex, and you'll see tag 73 on the western wall. Okay, we're moving into the heart of Balla territory now, so be careful (no doubt they've been a nuisance already). Drive east to the intersection you just passed and turn south into Glen Park. If you continue south, you'll drive over a bridge that crosses the lake. We want under that bridge on the north side of the lake. This is where you'll find tag #74. If you need it, to the north (still under the bridge) is a little tunnel that contains a police bribe. Get back on that bridge and drive south. When the road ends, keep going down the alley. Tag #75 is the on the wall to your left. Continue down the alley to the south (you may have to abandon your car, it's a pretty tight squeeze). When you come out, the skate park is right in front of you. Go in, and you'll find tag 76 on the fence near the wooden half pipe on the hill. Come out of the southern entrance of the skate park. In front of you is the freeway in a lowered ditch. Just drive off the edge onto the freeway and take the exit (up the hill to your left). This may seem familiar to you, as it's the exact same route you took on they bicycle during the "Sweet and Kendl" mission. When you come to the end of the curved off ramp, take a right. On your right you will see some tan buildings (which are situated diagonally on the map), follow them back watching to your left for tag 57. From the tag go south to the street. In front of you will be a large official looking building with palm trees and a hedge surrounding it. Take a right and follow it to the next intersection. Tag 55 is on the western wall of this building. Tag 56 is real easy, just go west on the street, and you'll see it on the building to your south about half a block down. Return to the intersection you just left and drive north (we're finally coming out of Balla territory, yay. Of course we're entering Vagos territory, but at least they don't seem to be as aggressive as the dratted Ballas are). At then next light, make a left going west, and then make an immediate right into what seems to be a sort of mini outdoor mall. Drive up the stairs to your left and go north, then west. Tag 77 is on the wall to your south. Continue through the mall from the tag and go down the stairs. Right in front of you is an intersection, and tag 78 is on the building that is kitty-corner to the mall. Just drive half a block north and it'll be on the left. Go up the steps and it's towards the northern end of the building. Get back onto the road going north, and take a left when it ends so that you are going west. Stop when you see the yellow entrance marker on your left (south side of the road). We'll take a mini-break here and do an optional task. Skip it if you like. Inside Track Betting - OPTIONAL [GTASALSRCWALK26] ------------------------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - None Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.00% (7.49% Total) Unlocks - None Head into the door marker. Play the ponies by walking up to the ATM-like machines, picking a horse, picking a bet amount, and starting. Do this until you get bored with it and head back out. (This is where you can make a ton of money without any effort, due to a questionable design decision by the coders. If you don't want to have to worry about money for the rest of the game, feel free to use the exploit. However, I prefer not to, so I'm not going to describe the technique here. It's your game, so do whatever you want). Gang Tags, Part 6 [GTASALSRCWALK27] ----------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - None Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.00% (7.49% Total) Unlocks - None We are almost done with this session of the gang tags, we'll only do three more for now. Continue down the street to the west. At the first opportunity, turn right into a courtyard. You will find tag 79 on the west side of the courtyard on a wall facing north. Turn around and head back out of the courtyard, and catch the closest road going north. When it ends, follow the building in front of you to the east, and pull in on its eastern side. Behind the trash bins, you will find tag 80. Go back west on the road your on, and take the first left onto the main road. Take the first right so you are headed for Mulholland intersection. When you reach the intersection, you have a lot of choices, but just go straight. Once you pass the actual intersection, watch to your left, tag 72 is on the support for a raised section of the road. We've now finished 82 tags. We've also done most of the ones in Balla territory, so the hardest of them is finished. The last 18 cover the western half of the city, so they are a lot less dense than the areas we've already gone over. Return home and save the game. Before we do missions, return to the gym. Learning New Moves [GTASALSRCWALK28] ------------------ Map Icon - Dumbbells Prereqs - 20% muscle Rewards - New Fighting moves Completion Percentage - 0.53% (8.02% Total) Unlocks - None Work out to increase whatever stat you need (either muscle or stamina). By this time, if you are not already maxed out, you at least have enough strength to qualify for the gym training. Walk over to the red marker in front of the trainer, and reply positively (press the Y key) when he asks if you want to learn new moves. Beat the tar out of him. When he goes down, he'll teach you a few new melee moves (I never personally found these to be of any use, but use them if you like them). I won't talk about going to the gym any more, but you should remember to go until you max out both your strength and stamina. You are probably not all that far off of maxed by now anyway. Home Invasion [GTASALSRCWALK29] ------------- Map Icon - R [The Ryder Strand] Prereqs - Drive-By Rewards - Respect (5) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (8.56% Total) Unlocks - Catalyst Mission, Burglary Vehicle Mission Let's go check out what Ryder is up to. This is a night mission; you can only start it from 12:00 to 20:00, so kill some time (you can just save the game to advance 6 hours of time if you like). Take the truck over to the marker and head into the house (remember we saw the yellow entrance marker when we were doing gang tags earlier). There are six crates in the house, one in the front room, one in the back room (through the door to the right as you come in), two at the top of the stairs, and two in the colonel's bedroom (last room at the end of the hall). Hold down the left Alt key while inside the house to avoid making any noise. As long as you have at least 5 minutes left when you get there, you should be able to grab all six crates if you like (though you are only required to grab 3). Drop the truck off, mission passed. Burglary Vehicle Mission - OPTIONAL [GTASALSRCWALK30] ----------------------------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - Home Invasion Rewards - Amount Stolen + $3000 Completion Percentage - 0.00% (8.56% Total) Unlocks - None This is a fairly easy moneymaker. From your house, head west and take a left at the first intersection so you are going south. At the end of the road you will see some blue apartments. Go to the one all the way to the west, and you'll find the van you need to start up the mission. You can only start up the mission between the hours of 20:00 and 06:00 (but you should aim for as close to 20:00 as you can, because the mission ends at 06:00, and you want to give yourself as much time as possible). Hit the 2 key to start, then head for some houses. You are looking for houses with yellow entry markers in front of them. For best result, look for two that are right next to each other. Park the truck between them and go into a house. Hold down the sneak key (left Alt) and grab anything in the front room that looks valuable (TVs, VCRs, or radios) and return it to the truck (hint, once you have an item let go of the sneak key and just run for the door, you'll be long gone before the cops get there). Once you've cleared out the house, move to the one next door. Keep going back and forth between the two houses until you accumulate enough stuff (or your time runs low) then take the truck to the lockup. You can only enter houses up until 06:00 and you have until 07:00 to get the truck back into the lockup, so keep an eye on your timer. You need to steal $10,000 worth of items to pass this mission, which is roughly 25 items (you don't have to do it all in one night, though it is certainly possibly to do so if you use two houses next to each other). From time to time, there will be someone in the front room when you come into the house. If that happens, just turn around and leave, and reenter the house. Usually they will be gone the second time (if not, you may have to find a new house, as they probably won't leave). For some reason, this particular vehicle mission doesn't add to your completion percentage, but it does give you quite a bit of cash. If you need money at any point, consider doing this mission again (although you only get the $3000 bonus for the first completion, you still get the cash you make off of items stolen, and at $10,000 per day, it's not too shabby). Catalyst [GTASALSRCWALK31] -------- Map Icon - R [The Ryder Strand] Prereqs - Home Invasion Rewards - Respect (7) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (9.09% Total) Unlocks - Robbing Uncle Sam Mission Let's go check out what Ryder is up to again. Hey, he's a chef! All right, looks like there's a job to do for the three stooges. Head to the train, take out the Vagos. Naturally, the Ballas show up, so take them out too. For the next part holding down the mouse button increases the strength of your throw. You shouldn't have any problem filling up the truck in the time allotted. Take the truck over to the nearby Paint-n-Spray, and then home. Mission complete. Gang Tags, the Finale [GTASALSRCWALK32] --------------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - None Rewards - Respect (6) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (9.63% Total) Unlocks - AK-47, Tech9, Sawn Off Shotgun, Molotov cocktail inside Johnson House Before we do Ryder's next mission, it would be good to have a little more firepower. So let's finish off the gang tags, as there are only 18 left. Start off at the Roboi Food Mart. Pick up your $2000 from in front of the store, and then look across the street to locate tag 88. Now go one block east on the road and look south at city hall to find tag 87. Continue east, just after the next intersection, check the building to the north (it's the police station) to find tag 86. Those were easy! (By the way, feel free to go inside police headquarters if you like. Just don't be holding any weapons when you get in, or you get an automatic 2 star wanted level. Explore around a bit, there's plenty of weapons to be had (it seems as though it's okay to pick up a weapon while inside, just don't switch weapons, or it's the same as drawing one, and you'll get your two stars). There are two sets of armor in the station (one in the locker room, one in the back by the cells). Also in the showers is the double-ended dildo. I'm sure we don't want to know what that's doing in police headquarters). Drive back south, then west and pass the Roboi Food Mart again. When you get to the main road, turn north, and then take the first left west. Immediately stop. To your north is a building with stairs. Go up the stairs around to the front of the building (the back stairs dead end in a handicapped entrance), where you will find tag 89. Drive a block north until you see the futuristic looking buildings with the green windows on the left. Go to the northern-most building and check it's northern wall for tag 85. Get back on the road going north, and take your second left. Just before the road ends, you will be near tag 84. To find it, look at the shops on the south side of the road, and look up. There's a ledge above the stores that you can climb onto to grab the tag. Turn around and go back down the street to the east, and take your second left. Watch for tag 83 on the left side of the road near the next intersection. Take a left at the intersection you are at, and then your second right (you'll be near the Pay-n-Spray and Trans-Fender. As you pass the next intersection, you will see tag 81 on the left on a wall. Continue north up the road and take a left when it ends. Drive a couple of blocks down and watch to your left (south) until you see tag 82 (it'll be just as you enter the Vinewood district). Remain on the same road going west. You'll go down a ways. When you see the shirt icon appear on your radar (for Prolaps), start looking for the Vinyl Countdown record store to the right. The tag (#93) faces west on a small wall behind a palm tree. From the Vinyl Countdown, turn around and go east. Take a right at the next intersection (with the tunnels to the north) and go south. When you pass the large grey building on your right (there will be a police bribe in front of it), pull into it's parking lot and catch tag 92 (it's purple on grey, so it's a bit hard to see at first glance, but if you're looking for it, you should find it). We want to go around the block. So get back on the road going north, take the first right east, then the first right south. Now take a look at the map, and you will see there is an inlet of water that runs all the way up to this block. At the end of this inlet is a mansion. You will find tag 91 on the dock that is on the south side of this mansion. From the mansion, go directly east. You'll travel down a mini-road that just barely appears on the map. At the next intersection, your mini-road becomes an actual road. Pass the intersection and stop in the next alley to the north (at the huge palm tree). Park your car right up against the western wall and use it to get yourself onto the roof of the building, where you will find tag 90. Five more to go, and they're all to the south. We'll start on the western end and work our way east. The first stop is the end of the boardwalk (not the lighthouse, mind you, the boardwalk, east of the lighthouse). Go to the end of the road, and check out the small building to the left (up the stairs) for tag 94. Go back north, but don't go up the hill. Instead, drop off the stairs to the right and follow the small road east. Just in front of you is a brick building. At the sand level you will find tag 95 facing south. Get back on the road and go north up the hill. Take a right past the Pay-n- Spray and head east for a few blocks. Watch to your left for a building with Bobo signs on it. Directly across the street from that building you will find tag 96. Continue on the road to the east. As soon as it curves to the south, you will see tag 97 on the wall to your left (it's on a brick wall near some shops). One left. Drive west on the road near the tag you just sprayed. After a couple of blocks, you'll see a long and windy road to your south. Take it and go up the hill. At the end of it is the Observatory. Get out of your car and go up the ramp (either one will do). The tag (#98) is on the northern dome. And that's it! Return home and save. When you get there, you will find a nice surprise. There are now four new weapons that spawn in your kitchen. Grab some of them and let's see what Ryder is up to these days. Make sure you're fully armored for the next mission. Robbing Uncle Sam [GTASALSRCWALK33] ----------------- Map Icon - R [The Ryder Strand] Prereqs - Catalyst Rewards - Respect (5) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (10.16% Total) Unlocks - None (but required to complete Reuniting the Families), SMG unlocked at Ammu-Nation Damn, you gotta give it up for Ryder, he has cojones. Either that, or he's totally insane! I found the AK-47 particularly useful for this one. All right, jump up on top of the wall and cap the guard. A couple more will come running so take them out too. Jump down and blast the gate control. Head over to the garage and open that up in the same manner. There are a couple more guards inside the warehouse to take down. Hop on the forklift. Use the numpad 8 and 2 keys to control the forklift up and down. Load up the boxes one by one into the truck. Help out Ryder with the steady stream of guards so his health doesn't get too low (he may be crazy, but he's an awful shot). Once you have all six crates in the truck, head for the lockup. Now the game tells you to toss crates out at the following guards, but I never had too (and I was dammed if I was going to give up my hard earned crates). Up to you, though. (Note that if you're having a hard time with this mission (in the respect that you can't keep Ryder alive), you can cheat a little by opening up the warehouse first and stacking the crates closer to where the truck will be before Ryder comes in. I never had a problem with this mission, but some people seem to, so that may help a bit). Once you're back to the lockup, mission accomplished. Note that, although the SMG is in fact now available at Ammu-Nation, you can't actually go into the store to get it yet (unless you are doing an alternate order than what is presented here). OG Loc [GTASALSRCWALK34] ------ Map Icon - BS [The Big Smoke Strand] Prereqs - Nines and AKs Rewards - Respect (5) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (10.70% Total) Unlocks - Running Dog Mission, Life's a Beach Mission All right, time to go pick up OG. Make sure you have some sort of decent weapon before you start. There is nothing hard about this until you get to the motorcycle chase. Just keep up with Freddy. Loc will shoot at him, but he's a worse shot than Ryder. You can try to help out, but I was having enough trouble keeping up with all of the tricky turns so I didn't bother. After a tour of the city, Freddy will stop. Hop off the bike and take him and his friends down. Now things get interesting, as you have the cops swarming all over the place (you have one star but there's like 30 cops around for some reason) and the Ballas being their usual pain in the rear. Sprint out of there and get some distance (don't grab a car right away because OG takes about a decade to get into the damn thing and by then you've been busted by the cops). Grab a car down the road somewhere and pick up OG. Floor it out of there before the hail of bullets fires up your car. I went as far as the freeway and got a new car (as both the back tires of the car I was in were blown out and it was tricky to drive at that point). Once you leave the immediate area, things cool down a bit. Drive OG to his job, and its mission accomplished. Unique Jumps - OPTIONAL [GTASALSRCWALK35] ----------------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - None Rewards - $500 per jump ($16,500 in this set) Completion Percentage - 0.00% (10.70% Total) Unlocks - None We're out of gang tags (thank God!) so it's time to do something else. There's nothing else in the game that you have to collect 100 of, the gang tags were the most tedious. But there are two other things we can collect in Los Santos (and Red County), namely Unique Jumps and Oysters. Both of these are actually spread out all over San Andreas, so we can only get some of them right now. Let's start off with the 33 unique jumps we have access to at the moment (there are a total of 70 in the game, so this is nearly half of them). Get out your Unique Jumps map now. First, let me give you a word of warning. Make absolutely sure the game tells you that you've gotten your Unique Jump bonus ($500). Usually you also get an insane stunt bonus at the same time, so it's easy to miss that you didn't actually qualify for the Unique Jump, and there is nothing more frustrating than finding out later that you missed one (because there's no way to know which one was missed short of going back and doing them all over again). Check your stats every once in a while (under Achievements) and make sure your Unique Jumps Found number matches your Unique Jumps Done number. If it doesn't, that means you got the slow motion effect, but weren't credited with the actual jump, and it's time to go back and figure out which one you missed (good luck). All right, first we need a decent vehicle. Fortunately, I can tell you exactly where to get one. From your house, go down into the culvert (where you get your armor from) and go north almost to the end. Near the back on the right you'll see a tunnel, which you should enter. Follow it (and the alley it comes out in) until you hit the street and make an immediate U-turn to your right into a parking garage. Now go up to the second level. There for your motor biking enjoyment sits an NRG-500, the world's fastest motorcycle. Cool. Before we start, there's a control you need to know about when on a motorcycle (this is another thing the manual forgets to tell you about). If you quick-tap the up arrow key (not the numpad arrow, the other arrow), it makes CJ duck his head. This gives the bike a speed boost. Don't hold it down because then CJ actually stands up, which will slow you down. Just quick tap it repeatedly. Many of the unique jumps require this extra speed. I'm going to give my jump distances so that you have some idea of how far you need to go to qualify for the jump. In some cases you don't need to go as far as I did (I tend to gun the jumps quite a bit), but at least it will give you a rough idea of what is required. Now that we're all vehicled up, it's time to find the jumps. We may as well do them in order, so let's go to #1. Head back down to the docks and get on the longer of the roads that goes north-south that is actually on the island (does that make sense? Use the map if not, there aren't a lot of landmarks in the docks area that I can direct you from). Start at the northern end so you're facing south (you should be just to the right of the actual road). You should see a ramp in front of you. The jump is successful if you make it onto the w- roof. I got it at 140 feet. Okay, onto #2. Drop off the roof and follow the road west. When it turns north look for a set of stairs down just to the right. Go down and drive all the way to the end of the road (another set of stairs) and turn around so you're facing south. Gun it and hit the southern stairs. You may not want to duck your head, because if you go too far you'll end up in the drink (I completed this one at 243 feet, but ended up in the water and had to go get a new bike). For #3, just go to the other side and do the other stairs (driving north). I got this one at 214 feet (would have been farther but that building got in my way). Now to get to #4 drive north and catch that little road to the northwest that takes you off of the docks, then go southwest at the freeway. Follow the freeway until you get to the tunnel. See the ramp in the middle of the causeway just before the tunnel? That's your jump #4. This one is, in my opinion, the hardest of the bunch in Los Santos, since you have to duck freeway traffic, light posts, come around a curve, and be hitting max speed by head bobbing all at the same time. I got this one at 170 feet, which I think is just enough. I found it easiest to use the right lane (so you're going with traffic), get a good running start, and don't bother with the head bob until you are nearly there and pretty well lined up with the ramp. Jumps 5 and 6 you can't do right now, the area is restricted to licensed pilots (well, you could do them as it is possible to get into the airport with some work, but it's not really worth the effort, you may as well just wait until we can get in legitimately). We'll come back to them later in the game. To get to jump 7, turn around and go back the way you came. Take your first right, and when you hit the train tracks, follow them southeast. Watch the fence on your left for a gap. See the dirt pile up against the fence in the corner? There's your ramp. I made this one at 143 feet (not very impressive I know, a bunch of people got in my way on the sidewalk, but it counted). You're probably on the airport/docks freeway now. Follow it east until you can turn north, and then turn left again so you go across a bridge. Once you come off the bridge, work your way south. We want to be on the eastern side of the culvert where it ends (above it, not in it). At that point there is a stairway (facing west) that is your ramp for jump 8. I made 166 feet with this one. You probably ended up in the culvert, didn't you? It's okay, so did I. Just take your first left into a tunnel and you'll come out on street level. The next jump (#9) is a little ways away. Open your map and head to the tattoo parlor that is closest to you (it's the southeastern most one). From there, go north up the street to the train tracks. When you hit the tracks look to your left, see the ramp? There are two sides to it; you want to jump east toward the v-shaped roof. You can get quite a running start, and I qualified on this jump at 196 feet. Come off the roof and follow the tracks east and then north. When you cross a bridge, look right. The bridge rail thing to your right facing south is your ramp for jump 10. What makes this tough is the damn palm tree right in front of the ramp. Drive south (stay off the tracks as they'll slow you down) and try to catch just to one side of the tree so you can pull the bike over to hit the bridge. You should land more or less in the intersection. I made this one at 170 feet. Okay, drive east to the stadium. When you hit the freeway on it's east side, drive north until you see the pedestrian over-crossing. The stairway facing west is your ramp for jump #11. I made 156 feet on this one. Go to the Cluckin' Chicken to the north of your house. Just to the west is a basketball court. There's a set of stairs facing west that is your ramp for jump 12. There's a little bit of hazard involved as you have to weave through lampposts, pedestrians, and probably Ballas shooting at you. I made 210 feet. From the last jump, drive north past those sculpture things and a bit west to the train tracks. You should see another pedestrian over-crossing. You want the western one for jump 13. Come at it from the south, and try to stay off the tracks. Again, there's a ton of traffic, posts, trees, and petulant Ballas taking potshots at you to deal with. My jump was 203 feet. From where you are, look for a set of stairs to your right (east, past the train tracks, there are actually two sets, you want the southern-most stairs). Go over them to the other side (east) where another set of stairs goes down, this is the ramp for jump 14. Drive down the street a bit get some distance, turn around, and let fly (you are driving west). You can get some pretty decent speed on this one, and I made 280 feet, not too shabby. You're back at the tracks now. Drive north then turn east right before the tracks go into the tunnel. Now you need to gain elevation. When you come out onto the freeway (the eastern most one bordering the ocean), turn south, and make a U-turn when the road to your right comes down enough for you to get onto it so that you're going north and up. Then take the first left up the hill. When you reach the top, make another U-turn to your left so you're going east again. Follow the road as it curves to the south. Right after you cross the bridge go into the courtyard next to the building (this is the same place you did tag 10, and there is armor to your right if you need it). Check out the wall at the end of the courtyard and notice there's a bit broken out, that's your ramp for jump 15. Get a running start and fly, it's pretty cool, for a bit it looks like you're going to go right into the ocean (although I've never actually made it). I went 300 feet on this one. For the next jump (#16) you want to get onto the Mulholland Intersection. You want the highest elevation and you'll be facing south (so it's as if you're coming south from Red County). Drive against traffic down the left side of the road (on the sidewalk). Eventually you will see the ramp. My jump was 243 feet. Now, I said we'd do these in order, but I'm going to make one exception, we're going to do jump 18 right now. Just continue south and make a U-turn when the median breaks to go back north again. Shortly, you will come across a ramp just like the last one, except facing the other direction. I got 206 feet out of that one (a car got in my way at the on-ramp so I didn't get the speed I did for #16). For jump 17, you need to go pretty much directly down. Head north up the freeway and when there's a break in the median make a U-turn, then take the exit to the left. From there I just cut across the grass to get down as quickly as possible. You should end up exactly under the middle of Mulholland Intersection, one level above the parking lot. If you're in the right place, you will be facing south and see two ramps in front of you and the parking lot below you. The ramp you want is the one on the right. My jump ended up being 146 feet. The easiest way for me to describe how to get to jump 19 is to start off at the Roboi Mart. Take a left out of the parking lot, then a right onto the main street. Take the second right to that funky split street. At the southern end of this little street, there's a drop off into a culvert. Drop into that, go down a ways (to the bridge is good), and turn around. In front of you to the left is a ramp you will use to jump back up to street level. I made 203 feet before the building got in my way. Head back south again toward the Roboi Mart. When you get to the second intersection, instead of turning left toward the Mart, turn right. Watch to you right (north) for a set of stairs, which is your ramp for jump 20. I went 240 feet and landed on the roof of the building with just enough time to slam on the brakes. Okay, check your map, you are looking for the Cluckin' Chicken on the northwest side of the city (there's only the one). Go there then go north up the street. Watch for the alley to your right. At the end of the alley is a stairway, which will be your ramp for jump 21. My distance was 170 feet for a successful jump. Head for the boardwalk. As you are driving up the boardwalk north, drop off the stairs to the right (rather than going up the hill) and follow the road to the east. You may remember this is right where we did one of the last gang tags. Right in front of you as you drive west is a stairway that is the ramp for jump #22. I went 213 feet. Get back on the boardwalk again and drive north. This time stay on the boardwalk all the way up the hill. Right where the road ends look to your left. About 8 feet away you should see a mound of grass that has grown up onto the fence. There's your ramp for jump 23. I qualified for that jump with 283 feet. Go to the Pay-n-Spray and Car Modification shop that is in the northwest side of the city (it's the Trans-Fender place). From there drive west and then turn north. When you hit the main highway (Sunset Road), turn west again. Take your first left, and watch to your right for an opening. If you look carefully, you will see there is a slight upturned lip at the ledge, which serves as your ramp for jump 24. Now this is a tricky jump because you can't hit it straight on. You have to land on Sunset Road, so you have to hit the ramp going southwest rather than west. This means that as soon as you pass the building on your right, you have to pull the bike to the right then immediately to the left. I found the easiest way to make this jump was to go up the street, drive west along the sidewalk to the right. Toward the end of the sidewalk there is a pole, you need to squeeze between the pole and the wall. Once you do that, you are pretty well lined up with where you need to be. As soon as you pass the last building just before the ramp, pull right then left very quickly (you only have about half a second to do both). Don't bother with the head bob on this one, you don't need that much distance and in fact it hurts you because you have even less time to get that final lineup with the ramp right. I went 160 feet to qualify. Okay, we're done with the jumps in Los Santos, but there are a few in Red County. You may not have been to Red County yet (unless you've done a bit of exploring). There are essentially four little townlets up there (from west to east, they are Blueberry, Dillimore, Montgomery, and Palomino Creek). Head for the eastern-most one (Palomino Creek). To its west is a river over which runs a bridge. The normal road bridge is in good shape, but there's another one slightly to the north of it, which has not fared so well. Jumps 25 and 26 are off this bridge (the first going west and the second going east). My distances were 186 feet and 283 feet, respectively. Note that you should not use the head bob for the first one. For some reason, you can over jump the unique jump and it won't count. So do it at regular speed and it's a piece of cake. Head west toward Montgomery. Just to the east of Montgomery is a main highway that ends in a pair of curly-queue types exits (by the way, there's a police bribe underneath one of them on the dirt road if you ever need it). Now, get on the main highway and get some distance, then turn around. You are going to go right between the two curly-queues driving west toward Montgomery to hit jump 27. I went 310 feet. Go to Dillimore next. You want to get on the road that comes into the town from the north, facing south. Directly in front of you (at the south end of this north-south road) is the ramp for jump 28. I went 233 feet. Jump #29 is easy; the hardest part is actually finding it. Head for Blueberry and catch the southern of the two roads going west out of town. In front of you will be a big factory with smokestacks. There is a sign on the building that names it FleischBerg. Once you see the sign, you've gone too far. Turn around and go back until you can enter the factory yard to your right. Just in front of you is a ramp that jumps over a trailer, and that's your target. I went 256 feet. For jump #30, just turn around and do it from the other side. This one doesn't even need a head bob, and I went 156 feet. Head back into Blueberry on the same road and take your first left north. Look down the road at the first right. At the end of this east-west road you should see a set of wooden stairs, which serves as your ramp for jump 31. I went only 136 feet (you don't have much room for acceleration) to qualify. The next couple of jumps are in Blueberry Fields, which are just west of the town. In the center are some barns. If you look around, you should see a large stack of hay bales in the center upon which are sitting your ramp for jump 32. Start all the way to the north (near the factory) and gun it south through the interior of the barn to get the maximum distance. This one is fun because you don't have any obstacles to worry about and can get a pretty good running start. I went 296 feet. Go back and look at the ramp from the last jump. The ramp for jump 33 is in the barn just to your right. The only tricky thing about this one is that you can't hit it too fast, or it won't count (you won't even get the slow motion effect). Seriously, take this one pretty slow. I have no idea how far I went (because I didn't get an insane stunt bonus on it), but I'd be surprised if it was even 100 feet. To the west of Blueberry Fields (across the road) is a logging camp (you can see it on the map as a square area). Go there and take the dirt road that comes out of the camp's southeastern side. This road curves north, and then makes a quick jag around a small ravine (just after the wooden fence ends). Notice that the lip of the ravine is raised (as you are facing south). All you have to do is jump the ravine to get credit for jump 34. I went 136 feet. For the last jump (#35) you want to get on the road south of the logging camp (the actual road, not the dirt road). At the western end of this road the railing is broken out and there is a grassy hill in front of the cliff. You will see the San Fierro Airport over the water. Now, you are going to lose your bike and probably your life doing this one, because we are about to enter unwelcome territory. You want to get a good running start, because we need to clear the water to make it onto the airport tarmac, which is a good 350 feet away (the elevation helps). Check out the nearest point of the tarmac to your ramp and aim for that point. Use the trick with the head bob and let fly. As soon as you cross into San Fierro you will get a four star wanted level. Do your best; if you can live to get back into Red County you're a better person than me. I jumped 374 feet on this one. Congratulations, you've done nearly half the Unique Jumps in the entire game and made a fair bit of cash doing it. Go save now. Running Dog [GTASALSRCWALK36] ----------- Map Icon - BS [The Big Smoke Strand] Prereqs - OG Loc Rewards - Respect (3) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (11.23% Total) Unlocks - Wrong Side of the Tracks Mission All right, let's go see what Smoke is up to. This is a pretty easy mission, just run down the Vagos and take him down with your Tech9. You should have no problem keeping up with him with your maxed out Stamina. Wrong Side of the Tracks [GTASALSRCWALK37] ------------------------ Map Icon - BS [The Big Smoke Strand] Prereqs - OG Loc Rewards - Respect (5) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (11.76% Total) Unlocks - Just Business Mission, Sawnoff Shotgun unlocked at Ammu-Nation This is a bit of a tricky mission. Wait about 4 years until Smoke decides to get his fat ass onto the bike while the Vargos are getting away. Gun it after the train. The best bet is to stay to the right of the train on the right side of the tracks. This gives Smoke his best line of fire. As per usual, Smoke couldn't hit the backside of a barn from 10 feet, so you'll have to stay with the train for a while. At one point Smoke tells you to "take the high road" which is off to the right. Your choice, you can either stay with the train or drive up the hill. If you head up you'll fall behind the lead car, but you won't have to avoid the oncoming train (and it's a tight squeeze). Once Smoke caps all four Vargos, return back to Smoke's crib to finish off the mission. Note that, although the Sawnoff Shotgun is in fact now available at Ammu- Nation, you can't actually go into the store to get it yet (unless you are doing an alternate order than what is presented here). Paramedic Vehicle Mission [GTASALSRCWALK38] ------------------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - None Rewards - 150 Max Health, $3000 Completion Percentage - 0.54% (12.30% Total) Unlocks - None Before we do Smoke's next mission, let's take care of a little business first. It will be helpful at this point to max out our Health level. Drive north into Red County and go to Montgomery. You may want to grab a bite to eat, as this will take a little while and you don't want to start having problems with food when you reach level 11. Find the hospital (it's on the western side of the town) and jack the ambulance. Hit the 2 key to start up this mission. There isn't much really to say about this one. You have room in the truck for 3 patients; so once you get past level 3, make sure to plan out your route strategically with the big map so that you do the minimum amount of backtracking. You get a time bonus for each passenger you pick up (the further away from the hospital they are, the more you get) as well as one for the first load of patients you drop off. Patients will start off around Montgomery, but by around level 7, they'll start appearing in Dillimore and Palomino Creek as well. For each successful level you complete, you get a cash reward. Like other vehicle missions, this starts out small but goes up to a very nice sum by time you reach level 12. It's a good idea to grab the farthest ones out first and work your back in toward the hospital, since they give you the best time bonus. Use your siren, as most cars will get out of your way. Once you finish level 12, your max health goes to 150, not to mention you get an extra $3000 bonus. You should come away from this mission with a very nice sum of cash, so let's go spend it. Buying Property, Part 1 [GTASALSRCWALK39] ----------------------- Map Icon - Green House Prereqs - None Rewards - New Save Point Completion Percentage - 0.53% (12.83% Total) Unlocks - None Hopefully by now you have at least $120,000 in your pocket. If not, pick up the difference (you have a couple of choices for getting easy money. Pimping is a very simple and quick way to earn cash. There is also the Robbery mission, which will give you around $10K a day. Personally, I prefer the pimping, since you don't have to wait for a particular time period, you get about $10,000 out of the 12 levels, you raise your driving skill, and you can keep doing it over and over again). Anyway, once you have put together $120K, open up your map. You are looking for the green house icon farthest to the north (ignore the red house icons, they are not available for purchase yet). This one is in Mulholland (the best way to get at it is from the south on the freeway, be sure to take the first exit once you get out of the city). This property comes with a one-car garage and a wardrobe. Go ahead and buy it, and check out the inside. Don't miss the three back bedrooms (there's nothing in them, but it's nice to know you can have guests). Most importantly, there's a save icon in the kitchen. Go ahead and use it to save the game. Congratulations! You just bought the most expensive property in the game. I did this now since we just did the ambulance mission and you probably have quite a bit of cash to spend, so I figure we may as well get this one out of the way. You may be close to broke now, but that's okay, we'll pick up some more cash as we go along. Just Business [GTASALSRCWALK40] ------------- Map Icon - BS [The Big Smoke Strand] Prereqs - Wrong Side of the Tracks Rewards - Respect (10) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (13.37% Total) Unlocks - None (but required to complete Reuniting the Families) All right, get some armor and plenty of machine pistol ammo; you're in for a fight in this next one. When all hell breaks loose, charge in and start head shooting the Russians. Once they're down in the hotel lobby, make sure to grab the duckets they drop (there's some armor in the back as well), and join Smoke to head outside where another battle awaits. Take down these guys as well. Now you're in a driving battle. Just follow Smoke's suggestions, you'll mostly be shooting behind you, but keep half an eye in front of you as well. When prompted, make sure to take out the grate covering the tunnel up ahead. Use the explosive barrels to finish off the pursuit, and you're done. Life's a Beach [GTASALSRCWALK41] -------------- Map Icon - OG [The OG Loc Strand] Prereqs - OG Loc Rewards - Respect (3) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (13.90% Total) Unlocks - Madd Dogg's Rhymes Mission There's not much to this one, actually. You can only start up this mission between 22:00 and 06:00 (presumably when OG is at work). Seems like OG needs a bit of help putting together his party, so head down to the beach to procure a sound system. Dancing is the same deal as the low-rider competition; just follow the arrows. However, instead of using the keypad, you'll be using the actual arrow keys to control your dancing moves. You need 2500 points to get invited into the van, which shouldn't be a problem (I ended up with 6800). Once you're in the van, high tail it out of there and drive over to the lockup, mission complete. [Note that some people report that if you are having trouble with this mission (or the low-rider challenge) you can turn down your video settings toreduce the lag time between the music and the video display, so give that a try if you can't seem to get this one]. Madd Dogg's Rhymes [GTASALSRCWALK42] ------------------ Map Icon - OG [The OG Loc Strand] Prereqs - Life's a Beach Rewards - Respect (4) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (14.44% Total) Unlocks - Management Issues, Burning Desire Mission Okay, trigger the mission and head up to the hills of Mulholland. Crouch, time your moves and take down the guards with the knife from behind. When you get to the book, go ahead and take it (you can explore the mansion if you like, it's pretty huge, but there's not much else of interest here (yet)). Once you've got the book, a whole new set of guards spawn. Take one out and you get a silenced pistol, just the thing for taking down guards without alerting the whole place. Make your way back out of the mansion. Once you're out, grab the mountain bike and head down the hill. Drop the book off at OG's job, and it's another mission accomplished. Oyster Collection [GTASALSRCWALK43] ----------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - None Rewards - Increased Lung Capacity Completion Percentage - 0.00% (14.44% Total) Unlocks - None So let's grab a few oysters. There are only 50 in the game, and they are spread out all over the state, so only 20 can be gotten at this point. Grab a car or a motorcycle and let's get started. Once again, we'll do these in order, so get out your oyster map. Your first stop for oyster 1 is the eastern beach (go east of the stadium to the beach and run south). There's a short pier sticking out into the water. Go to the very end of the pier and look down, you should see the oyster just under water. Hop in and hit the left mouse button to dive (while under water, hit the space bar to swim). You're next stop is the ocean docks. Go to where the big ship is docked (to the far east), then run south. You should find a set of stairs that go down to an empty docking platform right at sea level. Oyster 2 is right near this platform. You can climb back onto the platform once you have your prize using the shift key. Now drive west until you get to the first bridge. Oyster 3 is directly below you. Jump in, there's another empty docking platform you can climb up onto to your north. Continue on the road the way you were going until you hit the next bridge. Oyster 4 is right underneath it again. This time you have a bit longer of a swim to the north to find an empty docking bay to climb onto. And with that you're done with the docks. Our next stop is the airport, so grab a car. You want to catch the airport freeway that runs south of the airport. Right when the freeway turns north (on the west side), stop and get in the water. Look for oyster 5 just off the beach (you need to be swimming to get it, but you don't actually even need to dive). Get back in the car and drive north, and catch the first road going west. Just before this road goes into the tunnel, pull over. Cliff dive into the water, and you should just about be right on top of Oyster 6. Swim north along the cliff. Soon you will see a pier to your northwest. Swim toward that (when you're on the surface, hold down the space bar to swim faster). When you reach the pier, check your radar to the left of it. You should see where there's an inlet (this is the same inlet that eventually reaches the mansion inland where we did a gang tag). Swim up the inlet until you get underneath the pair of pedestrian bridges, and dive for oyster 7. Stay in the water and continue to swim north. Underneath the last bridge before you reach the mansion, dive for oyster 8. Continue north to the mansion to get yourself out of the water. Your next stop is the lighthouse (west of the boardwalk). Just go to the very end of the pier and dive off. Oyster 9 is directly south of the lighthouse right next to it. You can climb back up right where you jumped in. Okay, drive back north and keep to the coastline. Shortly you'll see a bridge to your left (it's closed). Park your car here and jump into the water. You're going to be doing a lot of swimming from here (note that under no circumstances should you set foot on San Fierro soil to your left, or you'll instantly get a four start wanted level). Swim north to the next bridge (it's a big two span affair). Under the west side of the northern span you'll find oyster 10. Keep swimming to the north. After a while you'll spot the train tracks above you, and oyster 11 is right underneath them. Keep following the river as it turns west. At the next bridge you'll locate oyster 12. Boy, this is easy. Shortly, the river empties into a bay. Follow the coast to your right (the Los Santos side) and a small beach comes into view. You may as well get out of the water and run along the beach for a while. Before too long you'll be forced up onto the road, and shortly after that you'll reach another bridge (so many bridges). Take a guess where oyster 13 is. Swim north up the river to get to a place where you can climb out of the water. Procure yourself a car; the next oyster is a ways away. Drive west along the coast and make your way north (you'll go through that really twisty highway). Past the twisty highway, when you see and sandy area to the left with a wooden fence, stop. You should see the Kincaid and Garver bridges across the bay. Jump into the water for oyster 14. Get back in the car and head for Blueberry. Leave the town by the eastern road and take your first right to a bridge. If you look down, you'll notice a wooden bridge below you. Head down there. Hop on into the water; Oyster 15 is (say it with me) under the bridge. Get out of the water (to your west) and get back in the car, the next oyster is a ways off. Head for Palomino Creek. Just west of the town is a lake (called Fisher's Lagoon). In Palomino, you can take a dirt road down to a pier in the eastern end of that lake. Right at the end of that pier you will find Oyster 16. You may as well stay in the water. Swim north past a bridge (and past the broken wooden bridge where you did a couple of unique jumps). At the next bridge, start looking for oyster 17. Swim north until the river opens up into the ocean and follow the coastline to the east. It's quite a swim, but eventually you will reach Frederick Bridge (it's a train bridge). Look just north of the fourth bridge support (from the south) to find oyster 18. Drive back south into the city; your next stop is Glen Park. Just walk into the lake to grab oyster 19. All right, one more to go. Head back up to the Mulholland mansion where you stole the rhyme book (it's just southwest of your save point). On the second level deck is a pool, where you will find oyster 20. And congratulations, you have now completed all the collectables in Los Santos. Whew! If you lost any muscle during all that swimming, hit the gym (lot's of swimming tends to get rid of fat pretty quickly, and once you run out of fat, you will actually start to lose muscle). 8-Track [GTASALSRCWALK44] ------- Map Icon - Trophy Prereqs - 20% Driving Skill Rewards - $10,000 Completion Percentage - 0.53% (14.97% Total) Unlocks - Monster Truck and Hot-Ring Racer Spawn at Stadium Drive over to the stadium and step into the red marker to start up this race. It's a simple figure 8 race. Unfortunately, the car you are using is apparently made of paper mache filled with Molotov cocktails, because it likes to catch fire and explode at the slightest bump. Also, the tires apparently have no traction treads on them and the course is covered with cooking oil, because the car loves to spin in random directions at the smallest provocation, usually leaving you facing backward (no, I'm not bitter at all, why do you ask?) But with practice, this course does get easier. Also, as you drive around and around, your driving skill will go up, which helps to reduce the fishtailing the car will tend to do. The trick here is to lay off the accelerator going into the turns so that you stay off the walls (you'll never make it past lap 9 if you're constantly hitting the walls). Don't worry too much about the other drivers; you can pass them without going full out. Take the inside tracks on the curves and you'll do fine. The tricky thing is getting ahead of the pack. The other drivers will try to spin you out, and they tend to get in your way at the worst possible times. Do your best to get around them (use the maneuver with the tapping of the rear quarter panels to cause them to spin out where you can). I found once I got into first place, even with very careful driving to stay off the walls, I easily stayed ahead of the second place driver. Just don't try to get into first place all at once or you're going to be eating a lot of wall. If you do catch on fire, bail out and sprint away so you don't get wasted. You'll fail the mission, but at least you'll be right back outside the stadium instead of all the way at the hospital, and you can just get back inside to try again. Chances are you are going to fail this mission a lot of times until you get the hang of the course. Consider it driving skill practice. And you will get better at it. My second time through the game I beat the course on my third try (my first time through I must have run it thirty times). Good luck. Remember to go save once you win the race. Management Issues [GTASALSRCWALK45] ----------------- Map Icon - OG [The OG Loc Strand] Prereqs - Madd Dogg's Rhymes Rewards - Respect (5) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (15.51% Total) Unlocks - House Party Mission Back to the story line. Go see OG at work (you have to catch him between 12:00 and 17:00). Seems he's a little upset. What else is new? You're on a time limit, but it's a pretty generous one. There's really not too much to this mission. Ram the car to make the driver get out, and then steal his ride. There's a nearby Pay-n-Spray that you can use to fix things up, then get over to the meeting point. Once the manager gets in, lose the pursuit and head for the indicated pier. Gun it down the pier, and when you get close enough, hold down the Return key or the F key (it takes a second to bail, so don't cut it too close). Mission accomplished. House Party [GTASALSRCWALK46] ----------- Map Icon - OG [The OG Loc Strand] Prereqs - Management Issues Rewards - Respect (10) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (16.04% Total) Unlocks - None (but required to complete Reuniting the Families), Silenced 9mm Pistol unlocked at Ammu-Nation Go see Loc at his job. Seems the party is on, but you probably have some time to kill. Take OG's advice and grab some new threads. You've already got the best stuff from Binco's, so head over to Prolaps (the best stuff there is probably the Mid-Top Sneakers and the sun glasses) and Suburban (in the northeast, the best things to get there are the Base 5 Hood for your torso, a Sliver Cuban chain, and a Face Black watch). You now have the best haircut and clothes in the game (that you have access to now anyway, there's better clothes available later on). Now head back home and save (make sure to strap up and grab your armor if you need it, because things will soon get a bit hairy). When 10:00 hits (or any time after but before 06:00), head over to OG's place (the icon has moved to across the street, which is presumably his house). Naturally, you have a few party crashers. I used the AK-47 for best effect. There are three waves of Ballas to take down (the second wave will be above you on the bridge, while the third wave will come at you from all sides). Note that, although the Silenced 9mm Pistol is in fact now available at Ammu- Nation, you can't actually go into the store to get it yet (unless you are doing an alternate order than what is presented here). Firefighter Vehicle Mission [GTASALSRCWALK47] --------------------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - None Rewards - CJ is fireproof Completion Percentage - 0.54% (16.58% Total) Unlocks - None Before we go talk with the fine officers of the LSPD, there are a couple of things we need to do first. Go into your kitchen and grab some Molotov cocktails, we need to summon a fire engine. Now go outside and toss one into the road so that a fire starts up. You may get a wanted level, but as long as you only have one star, it's not a big deal. When the fire truck shows up, steal it. Get a little distance (so that the original owners don't take your truck back) and hit the 2 key to start up the mission. This is a very easy vehicle mission, just go the fire, press the left mouse button to shoot water, and aim with the mouse. When the people get out, hose them down as well. You get a cash bonus for every level you pass, which adds up pretty quickly (I made $13K for all 12 levels). Once you get through all 12 levels, you become fireproof. In the future, should you need the money, you can always redo the mission, since it's quick and easy and gives a lot of cash. The fireproofing will be useful for the next story mission you do. But before we get there, let's take a bit of a detour and spend some of our newfound wealth. Buying Property, Part 2 [GTASALSRCWALK48] ----------------------- Map Icon - Green Houses Prereqs - None Rewards - New Save Points Completion Percentage - 0.53% + 0.54 (17.65% Total) Unlocks - None At this point you should have built up quite a bit of cash (I'm going to presume you have at least $40K on hand, if not, run the firefighter mission another time). Let's go spend a bit of it on new properties. Open up your map and take a look at the two properties to the southwest (one is near the boardwalk, and the other is just a bit to the west. Go ahead and buy both properties. The Santa Maria Beach house will cost you $30K, and it comes with a two car garage, a wardrobe, and a save icon. The Verona Beach property only costs you $10K, but it is missing a garage. Burning Desire [GTASALSRCWALK49] -------------- Map Icon - C [The C.R.A.S.H. Strand] Prereqs - Madd Dogg's Rhymes Rewards - Denise Robinson Completion Percentage - 0.53% (18.18% Total) Unlocks - Gray Imports Mission, Doberman Mission, Denise Robinson Girlfriend All right, let's go see what the three stooges want. Head into the donut shop and have a sit down with them. Now, for some reason, even though you have probably 300 Molotov cocktails from your kitchen, the game requires you go pick up this special set from the alley. Whatever, go get them. Now drive over to the indicated Vagos house. Equip your AK-47 and take out any Vagos hanging around out front. Torch the place by throwing the cocktails through the window (remember, you're fireproof now, so you can stand right next to them and just toss in the bottles without fear of harm. Keep an eye out for Vagos as you get all of the windows. Seems there's an innocent in the building, so I guess we ought to save her. Rush in and go upstairs (it can be a little hard to navigate with all the smoke, but you should eventually find the stairs. The girl is trapped behind the wall of flames. Too bad she's not fireproof like you. Run back downstairs and grab the extinguisher. Go back upstairs again and start putting out the flames. Lead her outside as the building is coming down around you. Once you get outside, she gives you a little somethin' somethn' for saving her. Now just drive her home. Congratulations, you have your first girlfriend, Denise. Sweet gives you a call around now. It sounds pretty urgent, but we'll leave him hanging for a while, while we take care of a few things. Dating Denise Robinson - OPTIONAL [GTASALSRCWALK50] --------------------------------- Map Icon - Heart Prereqs - Burning Desire Rewards - Hustler Vehicle, Pimp Suit Completion Percentage - 0.00% (18.18% Total) Unlocks - None You now have a girlfriend. Denise is available for dating any time between 16:00 and 06:00 the next day, but you can only go on a date with her once per day. First off, let's get her a gift. There are some flowers nearby, so drive west from her place. Once you cross the train tracks, turn south and follow the road as it turns west. Before it turns back north again, you will see some houses to your right. Go into the second to last yard on the street to find some flowers. Return back to your place and save until the correct time arrives. You also need a good car that raises your sex appeal. Fortunately, Ryder's car is pretty decent for this task, and it's readily available. We've already done as well as we can at the moment with your clothes, hair, and tattoos, so your sex appeal is about as high as it's going to get at the moment. When you get to Denise's place, give her the flowers (equip them, stand near her, and hold down the tab key). This gives you a 1% bonus for the date. Don't kiss her until you get your relationship bar up to around 20% or so (it's a -1% penalty to kiss her too early, if she pushes you away or just stands there, you blew it. On the other hand, if you have enough on the relationship bar, kissing actually gives you a +1% bonus, you'll know when a kiss is successful because she'll return the affection). Once you get the relationship bar to about 40%, Denise will invite you in for "coffee" (always reply yes, as this gives an extra 5% or 10% bonus to the dating bar [I think it's 10% for first coffee and 5% for subsequent coffees, but don't quote me on that]). When your bar reaches 50%, Denise will give you the keys to her car (a Hustler). At 100% Denise will buy you a Pimp suit (which gives you an even higher sex appeal and keeps your respect about what it was). Denise's three types of dates are: Food: She like the bar just around the corner (Ten Green Bottles), or you can go to a fast food place. Don't use the formal sit-down places, she doesn't like them. Driving: Drive around the immediate neighborhood. Let her shoot at Ballas for extra fun. Dancing: You only have one choice, the Alhambra. Get around 4000 points to knock her socks off (less points is adequate as well I think, you don't seem to get any extra relationship percentage for higher scores). Once you make it to 100% and get the suit, you can pretty much ignore Denise. Gray Imports [GTASALSRCWALK51] ------------ Map Icon - C [The C.R.A.S.H. Strand] Prereqs - Burning Desire Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.54% (18.72% Total) Unlocks - None (but required to complete Reuniting the Families) Return to the doughnut shop to talk to the nice police officers. Looks like we have a meeting to bust up. Go get some armor if you need it, and make sure you've got ammo for you AK-47 and Tech9. Crouch and go in shooting, these guys aren't in a talking mood. There's plenty of armor around, and even a health icon in the warehouse. Use the explosive barrels to your advantage. When you get into the office, the head honcho makes a run for it. If you can't get him right away, chase him down (switch to the Tech9 so you can run faster). Take out the guards outside if you like, but don't let the Russian get away. When he gets into the car, hop on the bike and shoot until the thing explodes. Mission complete. Doberman [GTASALSRCWALK52] -------- Map Icon - S [The Sweet Strand] Prereqs - Burning Desire Rewards - Respect (40), Money Icon on Grove Street Completion Percentage - 0.53% (19.25% Total) Unlocks - Los Sepulcros Mission, Ammu-Nation Shops [9mm Pistol, Tech-9, Micro-SMG, Shotgun, Grenades, and Body Armor], Gang Wars All right, armor up and grab all your weapons, then head over to the S icon (it's not in its usual place). The game gives you a few tips on Ammu-Nation. Get some ammo if you need it (you probably don't). Drive on over to Glen park and take it from the evil clutches of the Ballas. In between waves of Ballas (there will be three of them), armor and health icons will appear in random spots in the area. Grab them if you need them. Once you take the territory, the head Balla makes a run for it (coward!). Shoot him down and it's mission accomplished. The reward for this one is a significant bump in respect, not to mention you now have a money icon right in front of the Johnson house. Note that if you've done the guide in the order as presented, the Ammu-Nation shop will also have the SMG, Sawnoff Shotgun, and Silenced Pistol in stock in addition to the items listed above. Turf Wars - OPTIONAL [GTASALSRCWALK53] -------------------- Map Icon - Any non-green shaded territory Prereqs - Doberman Rewards - Respect, Money Added to Icon on Grove Street (amounts depend on territories taken) Completion Percentage - 0.00% (19.25% Total) Unlocks - None Completing the Doberman mission opens up the possibility of doing turf wars. Basically, you simply go to any territory on the map that is not controlled by Grove Street (so either Balla (purple) or Vagos (yellow) territory), and while on foot, take down three enemy gang members. This triggers a gang war. The idea is very similar to what happened in Doberman. Three waves of enemy will come at you with increasingly heavy weaponry. Health and armor icons will spawn in random places in the territory for you to grab. Defeat all three waves to claim the territory in the name of Grove Street. In most territories, you can take the area by yourself, but in the more dense populated sections (the darker shaded areas on the map), you may want to recruit a few homies to help out. From time to time, a Grove Street territory will come under attack. You must head to the affected area and defend it from the enemy. There will be only one wave in this situation. Now, there is no requirement that you take over all the territories, or even any of them. There are a few good reasons to do so, but one very good reason not to, so if you work on this now or not is entirely a matter of personal preference. I took over Los Santos at this point, but that's just me (I happen to think the turf wars are a lot of fun). The reasons to do the turf wars include: Very good money (gang members often drop a fair bit of cash, not to mention the more territory you control, the faster the money icon in front of the Johnson house goes up), practice with weapons (you can easily reach hitman level with several weapons going through the wars), no more annoying "our territory is under attack" messages (these will come up with very irritating frequency until you completely eliminate the enemy gangs in Los Santos), very good respect (taking over turf gives you an insane amount of respect), and finally you will no longer have to deal with the potshots taken at you from other gangs while doing missions. The one extremely good reason to not do turf wars now (and this is a bit of a spoiler, but I think you need the warning before you invest several hours of time taking over Los Santos) is that shortly, you are going to lose all the territory in Los Santos (this is by game design), so all of your hard work will be for naught (well, except for the benefits I described in the last paragraph anyway). There is no way to get around this, even if you take over the entire city and remove all enemy gang presence, they will take it all back at a particular point in the game. If you are going to do the turf wars to completion, be aware there are two territories that are kind of tough in that they are so small that it's hard to find enough enemies spawned to actually trigger the war. The first is the Jefferson Motel parking lot and the second is on the south side of Los Flores (immediately north of the end of the drainage culvert (and I mean right next to it, if you look at the street north of the culvert, there are little ledges over the culvert, stand in them. You could also actually go into the culvert, but it's hard to shoot at the enemy from down there)). The trick to these is to stand inside the territory you want to trigger and shoot any passing enemy you may see (even in cars). It makes no difference where the enemy dies; it only matters where you are standing as far as which territory triggers. So do those small areas before you do the surrounding ones or you'll have a very hard time with it. Here are a couple of strategies that might be of use. One, your best weapons (at this point) are the AK-47 and the Molotov cocktail. Both are easy to get (they spawn in the Johnson house kitchen), and both are useful for taking down many enemy gang members. The second strategy is to use elevation. Climb onto rooftops (use cars to get up to them) preferably flat ones that are big enough to keep enemy fire from reaching you. From this vantage, pick off enemy as they converge with your AK-47 (use that right mouse button for precision aiming). For those that make it to where you are (they'll virtually be underneath you), send a cocktail their way. Don't be shy with the cocktails, remember you are fireproof. Buying Property, Part 3 [GTASALSRCWALK54] ----------------------- Map Icon - Green Houses Prereqs - None Rewards - New Save Points Completion Percentage - 0.54% + 0.53 + 0.54% (20.86% Total) Unlocks - None If you just did the turf wars to completion, you are rich (I had over $100K at this point), both from money dropped by ex-gang members and money collected from outside your house. If you didn't do the turf wars to completion (or did only part of them), what you need right now is $30K. Shouldn't be too hard; just do the firefighter or pimping missions a time or two. We have three properties left available to us (Jefferson, El Corona, and Willowfield), and each costs only $10K apiece. The properties in Willowfield and Jefferson are studio apartments (exactly identical) which have a save icon and a wardrobe (no garages). The El Corona property is your best value, since you also get a two car garage for the same price. The Ammu-Nation Challenge, Pistol and Micro-SMG [GTASALSRCWALK55] ----------------------------------------------- Map Icon - Gun Prereqs - Doberman Rewards - Bonus to Pistol and Micro-SMG Skills Completion Percentage - 0.53% + 0.54% (21.93% Total) Unlocks - None Head to the Ammu-Nation store in Market (the other Ammu-Nations are too small to have a shooting range) and step into the red marker in the back (not to buy weapons from the merchant, the other red marker). This starts your weapon shooting challenge. There are four in all, but only two are open for you to do now, the pistol and micro-SMG. There are three stages, just follow the directions. You really shouldn't have any problem winning these challenges. Your competitors are even worse shots than Ryder (who would have thought it possible!), at least for these first two rounds. Despite popular belief, winning these challenges does not grant you automatic hitman level in pistol and micro-SMG. It does boost both skills significantly, though (about 200 points worth out of 1000) Los Sepulcros [GTASALSRCWALK56] ------------- Map Icon - S [The Sweet Strand] Prereqs - Doberman, 10% Respect Rewards - Respect (10) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (22.46% Total) Unlocks - None (but required to complete Reuniting the Families) Make sure to recharge your armor, have full heath, and be fully strapped before starting this mission. You can only start the mission between 09:00 and 17:00, so hit the save point a couple of times if you need to. Recruit a couple of gang member (aim at them with the right mouse button and press the G key). You have a timer to get to the cemetery, so don't waste any time (if you know the freeway pretty well, you can use it to get there in plenty of time, if you don't I would stay away from it and just use the side streets). Once there, take down the enemy forces, but keep an eye on your target and don't let him get away. Once he is down, finish clearing out the area, and then take Sweet back home, mission accomplished. If you've done the guide in order, this is the final mission (of 6) required for opening up the Reuniting the Families mission. If so, the S icon will reappear in its normal place. If not, you've missed something, so open up your map and go do whatever mission is still pending. Go Go Space Monkey (Video Game 3) - OPTIONAL [GTASALSRCWALK57] -------------------------------------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - None Rewards - High Score Completion Percentage - 0.00% (22.46% Total) Unlocks - None We're going to be leaving Los Santos soon, and before we do, it's a good time to see a few of the sights. All of these things are optional, so if you're not interested, you can skip down to Reuniting the Families, below. From your place drive west down the street a couple of blocks until you see The Ten Green Bottles (where you take Denise on food dates), and go inside, there's a couple of interesting things to see in here. First, we'll take a look at the video games, which are both on the left side of the bar (as you come in). The first game is Go Go Space Monkey, a side scrolling shooter. If you manage to take out an entire wave of enemy, a bonus icon will appear. Catch the icon to increase your firepower (there are four, and each gives you a slightly stronger punch). Let's Get Ready to Bumble (Video Game 4) - OPTIONAL [GTASALSRCWALK58] --------------------------------------------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - None Rewards - High Score Completion Percentage - 0.00% (22.46% Total) Unlocks - None The other game in the bar is this one. Hold down the space bar to flap your wings, and use the WASD keys to move around. Avoid the spiny bushes and grab all the flowers in the time allowed. Pool [GTASALSRCWALK59] ---- Map Icon - None Prereqs - None Rewards - Money (amount depends on bet) Completion Percentage - 0.00% (22.46% Total) Unlocks - None Also in the Ten Green Bottles bar are a few pool tables. Next to one is a man whom you can challenge to a game of pool. You can bet anywhere from $50 to $1000 (on this particular table), and standard barroom 8 ball rules apply. Other Bars and Strip Clubs [GTASALSRCWALK60] -------------------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - None Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.00% (22.46% Total) Unlocks - None There are three clubs of interest in Los Santos. While the bars and strip clubs don't appear as icons on your map (unless you are on a date), they are marked on the paper map that came with your game. We've already visited the Ten Green Bottles, so let's go check out the other two. To the north of your house (in Los Flores) is the Pig Pen, a strip club. Despite what it says on the sign out front, the girls are not totally nude (or even partially nude). There are (usually) two dancers on separate stages. Throw them twenties to have them perform special moves for you. You can also go into the back for a private dance for $100. In Little Mexico, you will find the Alhambra, a dance club. There is the usual assortment of video games in here, and you can do the dance challenge if you're bored and have nothing else to do (I find the dancing quite a bit harder when you do it for fun than when you are on a date, and can only manage about around 2500 points or so). Reuniting the Families [GTASALSRCWALK61] ---------------------- Map Icon - S [Los Santos Finale] Prereqs - Gray Imports, Robbing Uncle Sam, Just Business, High Stakes, Low Rider, House Party, and Los Sepulcros Rewards - Respect (15) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (22.99% Total) Unlocks - The Green Sabre All right, if you've done all the required missions, Sweet has set up a meet with all the former Grove Street families. Drive the homies over to the Jefferson Motel. Naturally enough, things don't go as planned. Don't bother with a protracted gunfight in the parking lot (unless you really enjoy a challenge), just run into the hotel lobby. Note the Sprunk machine here, which you can use to fill up your health bar. Work your way through the hotel (when they appear, follow the girls into their room for a small health boost) until you come across Sweet. Now it's time to shoot down the helicopter, and then follow Sweet down to street level, where the guys will pick you up. Once again we have a running battle, just shoot down the cars and motorcycles, following Smokes verbal cues. Once the gun jams, you're essentially done. Watch the cut scene (be amused by the new billboard slogan) and head for a save point. The Green Sabre [GTASALSRCWALK62] --------------- Map Icon - S [Los Santos Finale] Prereqs - Reuniting the Families Rewards - Respect (15) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (23.53% Total) Unlocks - Badlands, Zip Clothing Make sure to be fully armed and armored before starting up this mission (also, pick up any money built up in front of your house). There's really nothing very tricky about this one. Once you're done talking with Cesar, make a dash for your brother, then start picking off the Ballas (as usual, I found the AK-47 to be an exemplary weapon for this task). Once you're done, things take a pretty nasty turn. There's nothing you can do about it, so just sit back and watch how it turns out. When you are dumped in Angel Pine, go to the save icon (it's right next to the C icon) and save the game. And with that, we've officially come to the end of the first section of the game. Let's take stock of where you should be at right now. H6. Taking Stock [GTASALSRCSTOCKTOP] ================ Check your stats. You should have the following values (these are only the ones that apply to what we've done so far, you will have more, but they're not particularly important at the moment). Player [GTASALSRCSTOCK01] ------ Stamina - Full Bar Muscle - Full Bar Current Number of Girlfriends - 1 Luck - 0 Money [GTASALSRCSTOCK02] ----- Property Budget - $190,000 Money Made from Burglary - $10,000 (or higher) Weapons [GTASALSRCSTOCK03] ------- Pistol Skill - 200 (or higher) Micro-SMG Skill - 200 (or higher) Crimes [GTASALSRCSTOCK04] ------ Various statistics, none of which are important Gangs [GTASALSRCSTOCK05] ----- Territory Under Control - 0 Biggest Gang - Ballas (40) 2nd Biggest Gang - Los Santos Vagos (13) 3rd Biggest Gang - Grove Street Families (0) What?!?! This is the point where you lose your territories (if you did the Turf Wars, you've now lost all that work). It's just part of the game, don't worry about it, you'll get them back later (and it'll be much easier the second time around). Achievement [GTASALSRCSTOCK06] ----------- Unique Jumps Found - 33 out of 70 Unique Jumps Done - 33 out of 70 Tags Sprayed - 100 out of 100 Snapshots Taken - 0 out of 50 Oysters Collected - 20 out of 50 Horseshoes Collected - 0 out of 50 Mission [GTASALSRCSTOCK07] ------- Missions Passed - 34 Highest Firefighter Mission Level - 12 Highest Paramedic Mission Level - 12 Passengers Dropped Off - 50 (or higher) Pimping Level - 10 Packages Delivered - 19 Best Position in 8 Track - 1 Shooting Range Levels Passed - 6 out of 12 Best Position in Low Rider Race - 1 Misc [GTASALSRCSTOCK08] ---- Progress Made - 23.53% /XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\ 0===============================0 | I. The Badlands and San Fiero | [GTASABDSFTOP] 0===============================0 \XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/ I1. City Overview [GTASABDSFOV] ================= You'll begin in the Badlands, which consists of Flint County to the east and Whetstone County to the west. Whetstone County is dominated by Mount Chiliad, and is also where you will find Angel Pine. There is a whole lot of nothing in Flint County. North of these two counties you will find Foster Valley (home of the San Fierro Mall). To the northeast of the mall is the Easter Bay Airport, and directly west of the airport you will find the San Fierro stadium. The city itself is fairly compact. The downtown and financial district are on the east side of the city, while Calton Heights, Juniper Hill, Paradiso, and Juniper Hollow are on the northwest side, and are characterized by very hilly roads. South of these areas you will find City Hall. On the southwest side of the city is Hashbury and Garcia. The Avispa Country Club is on the southern end of the city, and just south of the club you will find Missionary Hill, where a broadcasting tower can be located. The entire city is surrounded by docks, most of which are freely accessible to the public. However, Easter Basin, to the east, is a naval base and off limits to civilians. Three major bridges are considered city landmarks, and include Gant Bridge, to the north, Garver Bridge, on the eastern side, and the Kincaid Bridge (which is a rail bridge next to Garver). I2. 100% Completion List [GTASABDSF100] ======================== Here are the things we will be doing in The Badlands and San Fiero that are required for the 100% completion score: Story Missions: From "Badlands" (Badlands) to "Puncture Wounds" (The Steal Cars Strand). Complete the Chilliad Challenge. Complete the Hippy Shopper Courier Asset Mission. Complete the Zero's RC Shop Asset Missions. Take Photo Op Pictures (47 out of 50). Collect Oysters (14 out of 50). Complete Exports Boards (3 boards). Complete the NRG-500 Challenge. Obtain at least all Bronze Medals in Driving School (12 challenges). The third Challenge at Ammu-Nation. Complete the Blood Bowl Challenge. Complete the Valet Parking Challenge. Complete the Trucking Vehicle Missions. Purchase (or otherwise obtain) ten available save points. Learn new moves at the gym. I3. Other Activities [GTASABDSFOTHER] ==================== These are the things we will be doing in Los Santos and Red County that don't contribute to the 100% completion score. We will do them for the sake of completeness. Some of them impart game play benefits, while others are just for fun. Unique Jumps (17 out of 70). Girlfriends (Helena Goodpoke, Michele Cannes, Katie Nookie). Big Smoke's Cash Mission. Yay Courier Mission. Beefy Baron. I4. Dramatis Personae [GTASABDSFDP] ===================== (In order of appearance) Carl Johnson (CJ) - This is your character, still. Officer Frank Tenpenny \ Officer Eddie Polaski > Police officers; once again, they start things off. Officer Hernandez / Helena Goodpoke - A girlfriend. Cesar Vialpando - Your sister's boyfriend. Kendl Johnson - Your sister. Catalina - An interesting woman you meet. The Truth - Hippy guy, reminds me of Tommy Chong. Wu Zi Mu - An interesting man you meet. Jethro - An employee. Dwaine - An employee. Zero - A shop owner. Michele Cannes - A girlfriend. Jizzy B - A club owner and member of the Syndicate. T-Bone Mendez - A member of the Syndicate. Mike Toreno - A leader in the Syndicate. Katie Nookie - A girlfriend. I5. Walkthrough [GTASABDSFWALKTOP] =============== The Chiliad Challenge [GTASABDSFWALK01] --------------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - The Green Sabre Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.53% (24.06% Total) Unlocks - None Unfortunately, you have been disarmed except for a camera, so don't get into any fights just now. There is a red marker here in front of your save point (which leads to the first C.R.A.S.H. mission, but we'll save it for a bit whilst we go and take care of the mountain). Look to the northwest, you should see the Chiliad Mountain (you can hardly miss it). Drive west out of the city and take a short jag south when you hit the t- intersection. To your left will be the entrance to mountain path (you should see a trailer and a series of fabric barriers that serve as the end point for the races you are about to run). Near the trailer, grab a Sanchez motorcycle and head up the mountain (the easiest way is to go up path that leads to the series of switchbacks). It takes about 2 to 3 minutes (2 to 3 hours game time) to get up this mountain to the top. When you reach the top, you will see a mountain bike parked at the beginning of the path. Get on this bike (any time between 07:00 and 18:00) to start the first race. Note that it is possible to cheat by getting off of your bike at the end and shooting the competition after all of them have crossed the finish line (but before you do). All of your competitors must have already crossed or you will be disqualified. Once they are all dead, cross over the line to win the race. But seriously, don't do this unless you are really pulling out your hair. At the very least, wait until your bike skill is maxed (from driving back up the mountain-side). At the end of each race, you will be on the Mountain bike. Get off of it and get a new Sanchez to go back up to the top. This will help increase your bike skill (which will be useful later on). There are three races you have to win. Scratch Bonnet Yellow Route - This race goes down pretty much the exact way you came up the mountain. You'll be racing against five other competitors in this one. The trick is to take it fairly easy. Cut the corners where you can, and be careful not to fall over the edge. If you do, the game will put you back on the trail, but you'll probably have lost some time. The competitors tend to pile up at the beginning, so if you can avoid them, you'll be in good shape (second or third place) right from the start. The other racers don't go particularly fast, so you should have no problem getting ahead of them as long as you don't wipe out yourself. You should sprint on the straightaway at the end of the race (coming at the finish line) if necessary to get ahead of anyone in front of you. This race takes about 2 minutes (2 hours), so you can do it about three times a day. If you end up past 18:00, run back to the save point and save (don't reload, you want to get your bike skill up). Remember to use that Sanchez to get back up the hill. Birdseye Winder Yellow Route - This race starts out the same as the previous one, and there are the same number of racers. However, pretty soon it diverges from the last track. In this race, your competition moves a bit faster, so they may pass you if you don't sprint. Don't let it worry you too much; you have two places to make up ground. There is a very long straight path that goes through some woods (and past a cabin on your right, which we'll come back to later in the game). At the end, past the last hairpin turn, is another straightaway to the finish line (this is the same ending stretch from the last race). On these two straight-aways, you should be sprinting to pass anyone ahead of you. Just be careful after the first one, as there are a fairly tricky couple of turns at the end of it. Cobra Run - I found this race to actually be the easiest of the three courses. For this one, there are only two competitors to race against. At first, it may seem impossible, since you have to stay on a very narrow boardwalk. But in fact, there's nothing to it. When you fall off the boardwalk (and you almost certainly will), don't bother to get back on, just bunny hop under the markers to trigger them, and continue downward. Your competition takes this race very slowly (they crash a lot in the rocks, although they don't seem to have any problems with the narrow path), so even if you have issues falling off your bike, keep going and you may catch up. After going through the hole in the rock, it's a pretty straight shot to the finish line, so gun it. Once you've finished all three races, sit back and enjoy the fact that you've completed one of the more annoying challenges in the game (but not the hardest one, that distinction goes to the NRG-500 challenge, which we'll come to later). Dating Helena GoodPoke - OPTIONAL [GTASABDSFWALK02] --------------------------------- Map Icon - Heart Prereqs - Burning Desire Rewards - Bandito Vehicle, Rural Outfit Completion Percentage - 0.00% (24.06% Total) Unlocks - None You'll find Helena on the rooftop of the Ammu-Nation in Blueberry, practicing with a pistol. Before she'll agree to see you, you have to lose all of your fat and most of your muscle. The easiest way to do this is to simply not eat (or save or be wasted or be busted, as all of them reset your hunger level). When your muscle gets down to about 40% or so, grab a car that gives you a good boost to your sex appeal and approach Helena. Once she agrees to go out with you, run over to the pizza place around the corner and get some food to stop your muscle loss. Then it's off to Flint County to start building up her relationship bar. The dirt path to her house starts across the street from the truck icon (where you get the trucking missions from). Helena is available for dates during odd hours. You can find her at home from 00:00 to 02:00, from 08:00 to 12:00, and from 14:00 to 24:00. Helena is probably the most difficult girlfriend in the entire game for two reasons. One, if she asks for a dancing date, there just isn't anything close. It's about equal distance to the club in either San Fierro or Los Santos (I prefer the one in Los Santos; it seems a bit easier to get to). The second reason Helena is a pain is that she won't invite you in for coffee until her relationship bar is up to 70%! This means the best you can do with Helena on any given date is 7% (gift, kiss, and successful date) until you are practically done with her. (And this doesn't even take into account you had to undo all your hard gym work just to get her to agree to see you in the first place). And for all this, the rewards you get from Helena are of questionable use. Still, she's part of the game, so here we are. There is a safe house nearby in Los Santos (just follow the road from the truck icon south past the loop-de-loops (which is Flint Intersection), and over the bridge). When you are going to (or coming from) Helena's house, make a slight detour to the top of Flint Intersection, where you will find flowers (they are in the median, right at the point where the road splits). For driving dates, take it pretty slow; Helena is not a speed freak. For dining, she likes the fancy restaurants (the ones with the fork and knife icon). There is a convenient one just across the bridge in Los Santos (in the Rodeo district) that works pretty well. When you are done with Helena, make sure to rebuild up all that muscle you lost. Near the safe house you've been using is a gym (it's not marked on the map, but you will find it on the east side of the beach, past the boardwalk), or use the one in San Fierro. Don't do this while you are dating her, you have to keep your below average build intact to take her out. Badlands [GTASABDSFWALK03] -------- Map Icon - C [Badlands] Prereqs - The Green Sabre Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.54% (24.60% Total) Unlocks - First Date All right, let's go do Tenpenny's little errand. Before we start it up, we will need a new AK-47. Fortunately, there's one available for our use. From your save marker, leave the town going northwest, then turn right (to go northeast) at the t-junction. When you get over the next bridge in Whetstone, take the next left. Follow the road to the next right and take that so that you are traveling north. You should end up on a freeway. Watch for the round buildings on the left. Just in front of them is a mall (it's the white building with a glass roof in the center covering a walkway), you need to get down to that mall (however you want) and drive along its western side. In one of the alcoves behind a rock, you'll find a shiny new AK-47. Before you start up the mission, you may want to run to the Ammu-Nation (there's one near your home base) and grab some ammo for a micro-SMG (so you can shoot from a motorcycle). Drive back to the trailer park and step into the red marker near your save point. The game will give you some instructions on using the camera as you make your way up Chiliad Mountain (don't worry, you don't need to go all the way up, we're just going to that cabin we passed on the way down during the Cobra Run race). Take a Sanchez (or equivalent) to get up the mountain. When you get close, hop off the bike and get close using the trees for cover. Use your AK-47 to take down the FBI agents and quickly run up to grab their guns (if you don't already have enough micro-SMG ammo). Hop on the nearest bike to give chase to the snitch. Be careful, you don't want to blow up his car, just shoot it enough to catch it on fire so he has to bail. Once you get him out of the car, shoot him dead, and then get a picture. Return the picture to the drop off point to get the mission accomplished message. In a bit, Cesar will call you, which opens up the next mission. You will also get a call from your brother, but it doesn't open anything (he's just checking in). Photo Ops, Part 1 [GTASABDSFWALK04] ----------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - The Green Sabre Rewards - $100 per shot ($2,600 this set) Completion Percentage - 0.00% (24.60% Total) Unlocks - None We've been introduced to the camera, so let's get a few shots. First off, we may need to acquire a camera (you probably have a few shots from the camera that Tenpenny gave you, but just in case you need more, I'll give you directions). Remember the AK-47 we got for the last mission? There is also a camera not too far from it. Just to the south of the mall are a couple of office buildings. The eastern one has a loading dock where you will find a camera worth 50 shots. Between that and the film you already had, you should have plenty to get started. We'll pick up another camera along the way. Get out your snapshots map. A quick note about the snapshot icons. You can only see them through the viewfinder of your camera (press and hold the right mouse button while your camera is equipped to look through the viewfinder). If you are pointed in the right direction, you will see the purple spinning icon. Zoom in or out (using the mouse wheel) until the icon just fits in the center circle of the viewfinder and you'll be at the right magnification to take the shot. The snapshot icons can be seen (sort of) during the night as a purple glow, but they're hard to make out unless you already know where they are. Once again, we'll do the photo ops in the order they are presented on the map. The first icon (#1) is on the bridge between Red County and the Panopticon (just east of the Easter Bay Airport and just north of Easter Bay Chemicals). Point the camera at the center of the bridge, a bit above it. Photo Op 2 is easy. Head for the entrance to the Easter Bay Airport and stop when you see the sign with the airplane. The sign is your next photo (you have to zoom in on it pretty far to get the icon the correct size). For Photo Ops 3 and 4, you need to get onto the tarmac of the Easter Bay Airport. There are a few ways to do this (you could get a Packer and jump the fence, or jump across from the Panopticon the way you did for the unique jump (there are easier places to jump from that side that the unique jump point)). Once you are on the tarmac, look between two of the fuel tanks on the eastern side of the airport for #3, and you'll find #4 at the top of the air traffic control tower, which you can snap from ground level at maximum zoom. For Photo 5, go to the mall. The picture icon is on the north side just above the glass roof. You can't get #6 right now, so ignore it. For Photo 7, go back up to the top of Missionary Hill, you'll find the icon next to the red and white broadcasting tower, about halfway up. In the parking lot in front of the building you will find another camera tucked into a corner. You may as well grab it while we're here. Drive down to the far southwestern bridge (it connects Mount Chilliad with Missionary Hill). Park just north of the bridge and look out over the top to catch Photo Op 8. Drive back north again (and get off the freeway on your first left) until you see a church-like building on your right. This is the Avispa Country Club. Turn into the club and point your camera at the tower to get shot #9. Shot #10 is very close, just drive over to the tennis courts and look above them. Drive north out of the country club and straight into an alley. You'll pass some flowers and a police bribe. At the north end of the alley you'll find a white building with a spire. Look at the base of the spire for Photo 11. The next Photo Op (#12) is across the street to the east, next to a telephone pole. Go east a couple of blocks and look for the block with the Burger Shot and the Gym. On the north side of the block is a construction site. The sign for the contractors (Final Build Construction) is your Photo Op 13. Now go a block west and a block north and look for a banner that crosses the street (Hashberry & Garcia Joint Festival) for Photo Op 14. Drive west another block or so until you see the Hippy Shopper to your right (more on this store later). In front of the store you will find Photo Op 15. Drive a block north to reach the Queens Theater (the Wizard of Ass is playing) and you'll find Photo Op 16. From the theater, drive east and go to the red house icon to your northeast. The sign in front of the building is your Photo Op 17. To find Photo Op 18, go around to the back of the hotel and look up a few floors. Drive west from here until you reach the thick square roads (on the map), which is the city hall area. Photo op 19 is on the building on the west side of the thick roads. Now just go around to the back of that same building and look up at the dome for Photo Op 20. Drive north from city hall square to your second right. When you reach the point that is almost directly north of your red house icon (where you took Photo 17), you will see a brick structure with a huge round chimney. Look above the chimney to catch Photo Op 21. Now drive another block east and look for a Chinese style building to your left for Photo Op 22. Now drive north one block (there's another red house icon here) until you see a Chinese arch. Photo Op 23 is just above it. From the arch, drive west through an alley. You'll come out in front of a Supa-Save. Pull into the parking lot and look for Photo Op 24 above the front door. From the Supa-Save, drive west. As you come to another red house icon, look for a big donut sign, where you will find Photo Op 25. Now check your map. East and slightly north of your current position is a Burger Shot. Photo Op 26 is a picture of the giant burger. Now drive north and west to the Gant Bridge (it looks remarkably similar to the Golden Gate bridge). The bridge is closed, but you can go past the tollbooths to the first support tower. Look up to the second crossbeam to find Photo Op 27. Congratulations, that's over half of the snapshots you can take in the game. Go ahead and return to your save point, we'll take a break from them for now. Blood Bowl [GTASABDSFWALK05] ---------- Map Icon - Trophy Prereqs - The Green Sabre Rewards - $10,000 Completion Percentage - 0.53% (25.13% Total) Unlocks - Bloodring Banger Spawn at Foster Valley Stadium Drive up to San Fierro to the stadium (just west of the airport). This is actually not all that tough a challenge. Your job is to collect markers (which increases your time by 15 seconds each). If your time reaches zero, you lose. If your time reaches one minute, you win. Concentrate more on collecting markers than on taking out the enemy cars, and let your gunner worry about the other cars. Buying Property, Part 1 [GTASABDSFWALK06] ----------------------- Map Icon - Green House Icon Prereqs - The Green Sabre Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.54% + 0.53% + 0.54% (26.74% Total) Unlocks - New Save Points We're shortly going to go talk to our new contact (the one at the ? icon), but it's a long drive over to Red County from where we're at, so once we get there, let's just go ahead and buy the three properties that are available to us (you'll notice they became available once you went into Flint County for some reason). The Dillimore property costs $40,000, and comes with a two car garage, a wardrobe, and a save icon. The identical property (except without the garage) in Blueberry will only cost you $10,000. Finally, the property in Palomino Creek will set you back $35,0000, but it does come with a two car garage. All three of these properties have the exact same interior layout (CJ must really like that style). Hopefully you had $85,000 to lay down on new save points. If not, you should be pretty close, so run a couple a vehicle missions of your choice to get the cash you need. First Date [GTASABDSFWALK07] ---------- Map Icon - ? [Badlands] Prereqs - Badlands Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.00% (26.74% Total) Unlocks - Tanker Commander, Against All Odds, Local Liquor Store, or Small Town Bank Mission This is not much more than a cut scene mission. Meet up with the Cesar's cousin and hightail it out of the area. After a brief conversation, you are given the choice of four targets. We'll eventually do all four. I like to start farthest out and work my way inward, so I picked the one in Palomino Creek to do first, which is robbing the Small Town Bank. Small Town Bank [GTASABDSFWALK08] --------------- Map Icon - ? [Badlands] Prereqs - First Date Rewards - $10,000 Completion Percentage - 0.53% (27.27% Total) Unlocks - Body Harvest Mission Hold the people in the bank at gunpoint. Eventually an alarm goes off, so blow the ATMs and fight your way out of there. It's a quick motorbike ride before Catalina is thrown. Be chivalrous and rescue her, then head for the hideout. Overall it's a pretty simple mission. You get a cool 10K for your troubles, not bad for a few minutes of work. After the mission, you'll get a call from a new contact that calls himself "The Truth". He sounds a lot like Tommy Chong to me. The Ammu-Nation Challenge, Shotgun [GTASABDSFWALK09] ---------------------------------- Map Icon - Gun Prereqs - The Green Sabre Rewards - Bonus to Shotgun Skill Completion Percentage - 0.54% (27.81% Total) Unlocks - None Head for the Ammu-Nation in San Fiero city (it's a fairly long drive from Red County, but we're heading back over there anyway for the next mission). Similarly to your previous Ammu-Nation challenge, you'll be taking on your competitors with a shotgun. Unfortunately, you do have to redo the pistol and micro-SMG challenges first, but this should be no problem for you. Once again, this should pose no particular problem, although it is certainly harder than the first two. The tricky bit comes with the third part of the challenge. With a shotgun, you don't generally miss, so it's a real competition to get the targets on the dummy before your opponents do. Even so, this should not be difficult. Before you leave stock up on SMG or micro-SMG ammo and some body armor, you'll need them in your next mission. Body Harvest [GTASABDSFWALK10] ------------ Map Icon - TT [Badlands] Prereqs - First Date Rewards - Respect (5) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (28.34% Total) Unlocks - King in Exile Mission, Rifle unlocked at Ammu-Nation Head for the TT icon and get the great news as to whom you're working for and why. Drive over to the cult location and get ready (I recommend a motorcycle for the ability to shoot straight ahead). Your best bet is to not try to take on everyone on the way in. Just buzz past them north to the wall, take a left to the end where there's a gap, and get into the field. Once you're in the field, make passes with your machine gun to take down the cultists, especially the ones on tractors. Grab the combine when you're ready and head for the exit. A bunch more cultists will get in your way, but just run them down and turn them into mulch (hence the name of the mission). At the main road, take a left, and then your next right onto a dirt track to get back to Truth's farm. A truck will be in pursuit, but he can't do much harm to you. Push him off the cliff to get him out of your hair. Once you have parked the combine in the barn, it's another mission accomplished. Cesar will give you a call that opens up the next mission. The Rifle is now available for purchase at Ammu-Nation. If you are doing the guide in the order presented, the Remote Explosives will also now be available (the latter actually unlock with the "Against All Odds" mission, but unlocking the Rifle over-rides this requirement). King in Exile [GTASABDSFWALK11] ------------- Map Icon - CV [Badlands] Prereqs - Body Harvest Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.00% (28.34% Total) Unlocks - First Base Mission This is just a cut scene mission. Things don't seem well back in Los Santos, but you have other things on your plate at the moment. First Base [GTASABDSFWALK12] ---------- Map Icon - Pink C [Badlands] Prereqs - King in Exile Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.00% (28.34% Total) Unlocks - Tanker Commander, Against All Odds, Local Liquor Store, or Small Town Bank Missions It's a long haul from the trailer park back to Catalina's place. Fortunately, her place is now also a save point (hey, a free property), so once you get there, be sure to save the game. Once again, this is just a cut scene mission, and once it's over, you have a choice of three robberies you can do. All of them are pretty close; so let's do the one in Montgomery. Against All Odds [GTASABDSFWALK13] ---------------- Map Icon - Pink C [Badlands] Prereqs - First Base Rewards - $2,000 Completion Percentage - 0.54% (28.88% Total) Unlocks - Gone Courting Mission, Wu Zi Mu Mission, Remote Explosives unlocked at Ammu-Nation Not a whole heck of a lot to this mission. It's a short drive over to the inside track betting place. Blow the back door, then blow the safe. Then make a quick dash to the nearest Pay-n-Spray to lose your wanted level. After that, it's a nice leisurely drive back to the hideout. Nothing to it. Cesar gives you a call once the mission ends and offers some racing opportunities. We'll get back to that. The Remote Explosives are now available for purchase at Ammu-Nation. If you have been doing this guide in order, they may have already been unlocked when you did Body Harvest. Gone Courting [GTASABDSFWALK14] ------------- Map Icon - Pink C [Badlands] Prereqs - First Base Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.00% (28.88% Total) Unlocks - Tanker Commander, Against All Odds, Local Liquor Store, or Small Town Bank Missions We're standing right here, and it seems Catalina is ready for another mission, so go ahead and enter the marker. After an, um, interesting cut scene, it's time to pick one of our last two robbery missions. Let's go over to Dillimore. Tanker Commander [GTASABDSFWALK15] ---------------- Map Icon - Pink C [Badlands] Prereqs - Gone Courting Rewards - $5,000 Completion Percentage - 0.53% (29.41% Total) Unlocks - Made in Heaven, Trucking Vehicle Mission Back slowly into the trailer to hook it up to the cab. Now open the big map and plan out your route. With the white car shooting at you, you need to take the shortest route to get there in one piece. If the car becomes too big of a nuisance, push him off the first bridge. Once you get to the truck yard, it's mission accomplished. After a bit, Catalina calls and "requests" your presence. But she's left us all the way in Flint County right in front of a mission marker, so she can just wait. Big Smoke's Cash - OPTIONAL [GTASABDSFWALK16] --------------------------- Map Icon - Red Blip [Courier] Prereqs - Tanker Commander (or whatever you chose as the third Catalina Robbery) Rewards - Up to $1,800 Completion Percentage - 0.00% (29.41% Total) Unlocks - None After the third Catalina mission, Cesar will start calling you about the deliveries (he'll call four times a week, in fact, but for this one he calls on Mondays and Fridays). If you feel like making a bit of extra cash, go track down the courier (red blip on the map) and ram him. Each ram causes him to drop a bit of cash, which you can catch for $300 each. These aren't required, so don't get too crazy with them unless you really need the money. The calls will keep coming twice a week even if you do this mission (at least for a while, they do eventually stop after a particular part of the game). Yay Courier - OPTIONAL [GTASABDSFWALK17] ---------------------- Map Icon - Red Blip [Courier] Prereqs - Tanker Commander (or whatever you chose as the third Catalina Robbery) Rewards - Up to $2,000 Completion Percentage - 0.00% (29.41% Total) Unlocks - None The other two times a week that Cesar calls (Wednesdays and Saturdays) will be about the yay courier, which is a backpack full of drugs carried by someone on a motorbike. Track him down on your own bike (or whatever you prefer, but a bike is best as it goes well cross country and you can shoot straight ahead with it). Once you take down the courier, the backpack he was carrying is worth as much as $2,000. Once again, these tasks aren't required, so feel free to ignore it if you like. Like the other half of the drug deal, these calls will come in from Cesar twice a week whether you do the mission or not. Trucking Vehicle Mission, Part 1 [GTASABDSFWALK18] -------------------------------- Map Icon - Truck Prereqs - Tanker Commander Rewards - Up to $16,500 Completion Percentage - 0.00% (29.41% Total) Unlocks - None We are standing at the marker for the trucking missions, so let's get started. There are eight in total, but you can only do the fist six right now. Take it easy with the truck; you don't want to lose the trailer. If the trailer should come off, you have one minute to reconnect it. The key with these missions is to use the big map to plan where you want to go. There is nothing worse than getting lost in a semi truck. There are three types of missions: Timed - You have until a certain time of the day to get your trailer to a particular place. Take it easy, but keep moving toward your target. Generally the time limits are pretty generous. Fragile Goods - There is no time limit here, you just have to avoid hitting other cars. This is a very simple mission, just go very slow and watch out for the traffic (as usual, the other drivers can be unpredictable at times, so you may have the occasional unavoidable collision). Illegal Goods - This is the only one that really presents any sort of challenge, because the cops will be a constant pain in the butt. Concentrate on getting to your destination and brush off the police (off cliffs, into poles, whatever) when you see the opportunity. When you've finished six missions, you are done for now (the marker for the seventh will appear, but the game won't let you start it until you unlock Las Venturas). Photo Ops, Part 2 [GTASABDSFWALK19] ----------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - The Green Sabre Rewards - $100 per shot ($2,100 this set) Completion Percentage - 0.00% (29.41% Total) Unlocks - None Grab a camera or two if you need it and drive to the far northeast side of San Fierro, where the docks are, we're going to finish up the remaining Photo Ops that we can get at. We actually left off on #28, but we can't get to that one at the moment, so we're going to start with #29. To start off, look for the dock that is jutting off to the northwest. Parked next to it is a submarine (the USS Numnutz). Your picture (#29) is on the conn tower of the sub. Just to the southeast (near the pizza joint) is a sign for Pier 69, which is Photo #30. On the east side of the pier is an interestingly shaped rock formation. That rock will be your Photo 31. From pier 69 there is a road that goes southwest and then curves south. Take this road and then make your second left. To your right is a skyscraper, and Photo 32 is about half way up the northern side of this building. From the skyscraper drive west until you reach the beginning of a tunnel. Stop there and take a photo of the tree above the tunnel to catch Photo Op 33. If you look at the map directly south of where you are you should see a very windy street that looks a lot like Lombard Street (note that I'm going to refer to this street quite a bit since it's an easy landmark to find, and I'll usually call in Lombard Street, even though in game it doesn't really have a name). Photo Op 34 can be found in the center of Lombard Street. A block to the east (on the north side of the street) is a statue that serves as Photo Op 35. Continue another block east. When you pass the pizza joint to your left, look south for another tall skyscraper. Photo Op 36 is on the top of this skyscraper. You can get it from ground level (though you'll need to get a bit of distance from the building to get the right angle). Continue driving east until you hit the end of the road, where you will see a big clock tower. I'm guessing you won't have much trouble finding Photo Op 37 at this point. From the clock, drive south and take your second right. Head up the hill and drive west a few blocks until you see a building to your south with plants inside. Go inside (it the Zombotech building, "Sinister Zombie Virus Research Corporation") and go to the back where you will see a sculpture of a DNA strand. Photo Op 38 is in the middle of the strand. From the Zombotech building, drive south one block to the trio of buildings and catch Photo Op 39 on the western side of the eastern-most of the trio. Drive on the road to the east of the trio of buildings (the road with the curve in it). You want to get on the Garver Bridge. The bride is still closed, so you may have to walk. Go as far as you can on the bridge (which is roughly to the first support tower) and look for Photo Op 40 partway up the tower. You can't get Photo 41 at the moment, so skip it for now. Drive back off of the bridge and go west again to the trio of buildings. On the block that is to the southwest of the trio is another skyscraper (it's L-shaped). At the very top (just above the three spires) you will find Photo Op 42. Now drive exactly one block west. On the west side of this street you should find a very unremarkable grey and white building. Its one distinguishing feature is that it has a tower on the southeast side, which is your Photo Op 43. From this point check your map. To the southwest you will see two baseball fields. Photo Op 44 is just above home plate on the northern field. From the fields, take the road going east (directly from the northern baseball field). Shortly it ends in a construction site. To the north is a big construction crane, and you find Photo Op 45 at the top of it. It's time to look at the map again. To the northeast of where you are (starting in the bay) is a railroad track (the red line) that runs northeast to southwest. At its southwest end (just after it reaches land) it stops, and right next to it is a building. This is the Xoomer gas station. Photo Op 46 is just above the big rotating X. Photo Op 47 is a little tricky. You have to go onto the Naval base (from the Zoomer station, look to your east where you will see the fence, just follow it north to the gate), which is an instant 4-star wanted level. Immediately drive to the east and stop at the back of the ship's conn. Your shot is of the ship. Grab your car and hightail it to the nearby Pay-n-Spray to get rid of the cops. Assuming you made it to the Pay-n-Spray, you are very close to Photo 48. Just look to your south at the train station. The photo is in the glass overhang. Follow the tracks to the south until you come to the first road that crosses the tracks, and look to your left for four tall rusty tanks. Photo Op 49 is between the tanks. Continue past the tanks going east until the road curves north. Follow it up and head into the freight yard to your right. In one of the larger buildings you will see an NRG-500 (hmmmm). Photo Op 50 is above this warehouse. And you now have 47 out of 50 possible snap shots completed. We'll get the last three in a bit. Let's go save the game. Drive back to Red County to Catalina's place and save there. It's a long drive, I know, but we have to go there anyway for the next mission. Made In Heaven [GTASABDSFWALK20] -------------- Map Icon - Pink C [Badlands] Prereqs - Gone Courting Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.00% (29.41% Total) Unlocks - Tanker Commander, Against All Odds, Local Liquor Store, or Small Town Bank Missions Go see Catalina. She's her usual cheery self. Once again, we are prompted to select a target. Of course, at this point, you have only one left, in Blueberry, so head over there now. Local Liquor Store [GTASABDSFWALK21] ------------------ Map Icon - Pink C [Badlands] Prereqs - Made In Heaven Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.54% (29.95% Total) Unlocks - None (but required for Farewell, My Love mission) Seems someone else had the same idea you did. Concentrate on keeping up with the quads and let Catalina do the shooting (for a change, Catalina is a pretty decent shot, unlike some of your previous partners). Don't worry about grabbing the briefcases if you miss them on your way by, they won't go anywhere, just stay with the thieves. The quads will sometimes split up, but don't worry, eventually they come back together. Once all the quads are done, return to the blue radar markers to grab any briefcases you may have missed. Wu Zi Mu [GTASABDSFWALK22] -------- Map Icon - CV [Badlands] Prereqs - First Two Catalina Robbery Missions Rewards - $5,000 Completion Percentage - 0.53% (30.48% Total) Unlocks - None (but required for Farewell, My Love mission) Grab a decent car. Speed is not as important as its ability to handle on dirt. You cannot, however, use a bike, it must be a car. Drive to the marker and get ready to race. Nothing much to say about this one, but you shouldn't have too much of a problem with the competition. Watch for the dirt road shortcut you can take on the Panopticon to shave a little time off your run. Come in first place to complete this mission. Farewell, My Love [GTASABDSFWALK23] ----------------- Map Icon - CV [Badlands] Prereqs - Wu Zi Mu and all four Catalina Robbery Missions Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.54% (31.02% Total) Unlocks - Are You Going to San Fierro Mission The CV icon appears right next to you when you finish the last mission, so we may as well run it. What do you know, it's another race. Strangely, this is the exact same course you just finished running, only in reverse. It should give you no trouble at all, since you get to use the car you won in the Wu Zi Mu mission (which handles very nicely and has a pretty decent acceleration). Don't bother to get too crazy with the accelerator, or you'll do a lot of spinning (especially on the dirt roads). You don't need to floor it to win the race. NRG-500 Challenge [GTASABDSFWALK24] ----------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - Green Sabre Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.53% (31.55% Total) Unlocks - None Drive down to Angel Pine and save the game. We are about to do an extraordinarily difficult mission, so prepare yourself. You may remember when we were doing photo ops, we ran across an NRG-500 bike in Eastern Basin (it was Photo Op #50, if you don't remember). Go there now (it's the dock area between the airport and the naval base) and hop on the bike. You start off with 10 seconds (awful nice of them to give you a little time, eh?). For each corona you collect, you get another 10 seconds added to your timer. Collect them all before time runs out to win. Simple! Before we start, you should know that, like the BMX challenge, if you fail (and you will fail), just park the bike where you got it, get off, and get back on, and the challenge will restart. There is no need to respawn the bike. For the purposes of this guide, we are going to call the tip of the round part of the docking bay the front, and the doors that hold back all the water the back. That means you start near the front facing the back on the right side. With me? Here is my suggestion for your route. If you can come up with one that's better, feel free to use it; this is just the method that I used. When you start, you have two choices, down the ramp or level. I suggest staying on the level path moving toward the back. Be careful not to fall into the drink at the end. Turn onto the top of the doors and cross to get the corona there. When you come out the other side (the left side of the course), come out slowly so you can make a hairpin turn to grab the corona to your right. Then gun it and fall into the docking bay so that hopefully you land right on the corona in the middle back. Now spin around to grab the one partway up the wall behind you. Now drive toward the front and grab the four remaining coronas at the bottom of the bay (including the one partway up the wall). I do this in a clockwise manner so that I end up near the ramp. Get on the ramp to grab the last two easy coronas. At this point, you hopefully have about 1:20 or so with seven coronas left. You will need every second of that time to get these last ones. Unfortunately, there isn't much I can tell you about getting those coronas; you simply have to figure out the best angle and speed to hit the wall. Eventually you will get the hang of it and be able to get the markers consistently, and it just becomes a matter of grabbing them before time runs out. I will try, however, to give a few tips. Take a look at the ramp from inside the docking bay. You will notice there is a point that the ramp changes slope. This is a good reference point. For the two coronas on the right side of the course (near the ramp), I found the best technique was to start in the far back left corner and drive at an angle such that you would hit the middle of the bay (the black grate) at around the place where the ramp changes slope. Probably just before you actually reach that grate, pull the bike right so that you come at the wall at a pretty sharp angle. You will hit the wall just past the ramp's slope change point. If you do this perfect, you can even get both coronas with the same jump (I managed this twice out of about 50 attempts, so it's not easy). Still, you should be able to refine your approach such that you nearly always get at least one of two markers. If you don't get them both at once, just go back for a second pass. For the corona at the very front of the course (it's the highest one), take a look down the middle of the bay. Naturally you will notice the black grate. Next to it (on its right as you are looking at the target corona) is a line in the cement. Run straight down this line from the very back. Just as you hit the wall, pull the bike just slightly to the right, and you should run right through the corona. For the markers to the left and right of the last one, you can treat them both the same. Simply drive along the opposite side of the bay to the target you are after (if you are after the one on the right side, drive along the left side of the bay). As you approach the curved part of the bay, pull the bike toward the target so that you hit the wall straight on right under the corona, and you should fly directly into the marker. I never had much trouble with these particular coronas. Then we come to the two coronas on the left side. These were the thorn in my side, and I can't offer much in the way of advice, since neither has a good reference point. I had my best luck with these two starting at the back right side of the bay, driving along the right side, then pulling sharply left. You want to hit the wall at an angle rather than try to go straight up it, as that gives you the best chance at catching the corona. Good luck with this, it is extremely difficult to pull off. While it may look easy enough on paper, in reality, you'll spend a lot of time lining up angles only to miss the marker and have to repeat it. Keep at it; you'll get it eventually. If you are truly desperate and about to throw your computer out a window, you can cheat. It turns out that (just like the BMX challenge) if you grab a marker after your time runs out but before the mission failed message appears, the timer goes away and you now have unlimited time to get the coronas. It's not at all easy to get this to happen (you only have a fraction of a second, too soon and the timer stays put, to late and you fail the mission), but it's a heck of a lot easier than grabbing all those coronas within the time limit. Resist the urge to do this as long as you can, as it is an exploit (just think how great you will feel once you've fairly beaten this mission), but I will forgive you if you just have to use it (I was sorely tempted myself after about the 80th time running this track, and we all know how I feel about exploits). Amazingly, given the difficulty of this course, there is no reward for completing it. Life is not fair. Unique Jumps - OPTIONAL [GTASABDSFWALK25] ----------------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - None Rewards - $500 per jump ($8,500 in this set) Completion Percentage - 0.00% (31.55% Total) Unlocks - None We have an NRG-500 (or we know where to get one). So therefore it must be time to do our unique jumps! Go save in Angel Pines, and make sure to bring your bike. There are only 17 jumps in this set, significantly less than what we did in Los Santos. The first jump is #36 on the map. From your save point, leave town heading southwest. Where the road ends there will be a beach in front of you. Drop down onto it, and look around for a very large dune (there is usually a dune buggy behind it). The dune is your ramp for the jump, and you'll be jumping east. Be careful not to jump into the ocean if you can help it. I went 253 feet on this jump. Return to your save point in Angel Pine and take a look to the southeast, where you will see a rusted out car with some metal planks against it. Take a wild guess where jump 37 is located. Clear the building to qualify for the jump, I made 167 feet. Remember the Cobra run in the Chiliad challenge? Unique jump 38 uses the final boardwalk ramp from that race as its ramp. You can actually get to it without going up the entire mountain (start up as usual, but at the first hairpin turn continue straight, you'll find the rock hole and the boardwalks not to far up. You don't have to jump very far (in fact, it's pretty hard to line up properly if you go too far back). I went less than 100 feet and still qualified for the jump. All right, head back into San Fierro. Specifically, go to the stadium (it's the big trophy icon on the map), and look on the south side parking lot. You should find a ramp to use for Jump 39 on the east side. Just jump the ramp and land on the freeway, I went 196 feet. The next two jumps both happen inside the airport. Unlike the Los Santos Airport, getting into Easter Bay Airport with your bike is pretty easy; there are any number of ways to do it. The road by Easter Bay Chemicals (for instance) has a very narrow gap between it and the tarmac. However you manage it, get inside the fenced area and go to the northwestern portion (use the bridge if you need to). Northwest of where the bridge ends, you will find your ramp for Jump 40, which actually takes you off the airport grounds. I went 190 feet. Return to the airport again and look north of your last jump. At the end of the runway, facing northwest is another ramp (it looks just like the ramp for the last jump we did). Once again, you'll be leaving the airport grounds. I went 300 feet to qualify for Unique Jump 41. Okay, head for the gym (near the burger shot) and face south toward the freeway. You will see a pedestrian over crossing that goes over the freeway. The bottom set of stairs is your ramp (driving south) for jump 42. This is a bit of a tricky jump, as you don't have a lot of runway and you have to clear the freeway to make it count. Tap the forward arrow key to build up speed, and just as you get to the ramp hold it down (so that CJ stands up) to pull the bike up. My distance was 220 feet. A block east of the gym is a large city block that is grey on the map. It is surrounded by a wall, but you can get in from the north. Make your way inside and you will find (near the northwestern end) is a building that is degenerating. The roof has fallen down and will serve nicely as a ramp for Unique Jump 43. You don't want to go too fast on this one, as you want to land safely in the street (not crash into the building on the other side). I went 149 feet. Open up your map and look for the eastern Pay-n-Spray in San Fierro. Head there and drive a little south until you see a rusty metal ramp in front of the freeway. The ramp is your jump 44. You have to clear the freeway to make it count. I went 210 feet. Now look for the other Pay-n-Spray in the northwest of the city. Two blocks south is the Supra-Save (you may remember the market from the Photo Op). If you look in the parking lot (to the southeast), you will see a cement ramp. You want to jump it east into the alley to qualify for jump 45. My distance was 166 feet. Open the map again and look for the red house icon in San Fierro that is furthest to the west (it's in Paradiso). To the south is a series of two story apartments. Go to the last driveway on the eastern side of that block. As you are looking south down this driveway, you ought to be looking right at the San Fierro Medical Center (which is written in big letters on the building). At the end of the driveway is a bump in the grass, which will be your ramp for jump 46. You have to clear the buildings to the south. I qualified with 200 feet. Drive to the top of the Lombard street look alike (the real curvy street). As you are looking at the street (from the top), there is a staircase to the left. There is your ramp for jump 47. You probably don't need to bother with the head bob, since when you come up the hill if you are going too fast you'll make a slight jump that will slow you down anyway. I did this at 152 feet. Break open the map again and look for the only true square block that is near the northeastern side of the city (it's in the Financial district just south of Downtown, you'll be one block west of the main road near the coastline). On the southeastern side of this block you will find a set of stairs that go up to the east. This, naturally, is your ramp for jump 48, which I managed 216 feet with. To get to jump 49, travel back to the ramp you just used, then go one block north and one block west until you see Michelle's Garage to your right. Note carefully the set of stairs next to the garage. I went 230 feet and smacked into the parking garage on the next street over. For unique jump 50, you want to find the northeastern burger shot, then go one block to the east (to the main road), and slightly north. Watch for an alley with a ramp in it (as you are traveling north, it will be to your left). You can drive at it going west down a convenient street. Don't head bob, as you can over jump this one. I went 240 feet. From where you landed that last jump, look north for the apartments. There are a few alleys between them. You want to locate the alley which is second from the west. Drive south up the hill to get some running room, turn around, and let fly. When you come out of the alley, you'll hit the bump in the grass and catch quite a bit of air for jump 51. I qualified for the jump at 250 feet (I also did it just for fun with a head bob and went 375 feet, but that may over- jump the task (but by all means give it a try)). Return to where you jumped, and take a look on the west side of the apartments. You will find a cement ramp similar to ones you've already used. This jump (#52) is a bit tricky because of the small wall in front of the ramp. Use the street to build up speed and hit the ramp as straight as you can while still avoiding that wall. I found using the lean keys (arrow keys) to work the best. The strategy that finally worked for me was to start at the top of the hill on the west side of the street and come at the ramp at an angle, then lean right just as you reach the ramp. It is a pretty tricky jump to qualify for, but keep at it, and you'll get it. I landed with 280 feet of distance (just in front of the diner on the road that goes through the tunnel). And that's it for now (Jump 53 is actually in this city at the Gant Bridge, but you can't do it yet as you'll just hit the inviso-barrier that prevents you from going to Las Venturas, so we'll wait to do that one until later). Are You Going to San Fierro [GTASABDSFWALK26] --------------------------- Map Icon - TT [Badlands] Prereqs - Farewell, My Love Rewards - Respect (15), New Save Point Completion Percentage - 0.54% (32.09% Total) Unlocks - Wear Flowers in Your Hair Mission All right, let's go talk to Truth. Help him with his gardening. Since you're fireproof, there should be nothing to it. Just walk forward with the flamethrower on. Don't worry about spraying all the plants, the fire will spread to the sides and get them. Just keep the thrower pointed straight ahead and walk steadily through each row. Now shoot down the chopper. Nothing too it, just follow the directions on the screen. For some reason, the cops now lose interest in you (odd, since you just took down a chopper, but whatever). Drive up to the garage and it's mission accomplished. Most importantly, you now have a save point in San Fierro! It's about time. By the way, this officially concludes the story missions in the Badlands. Obviously, there was nothing preventing CJ from going into San Fierro before, but now the missions will begin to center around the city. Also, a whole mess of safe houses just became available for purchase (and yes, I know there are still two more down in the Badlands we haven't purchased yet). Unfortunately, we would need something on the order of $370,000 to buy all eight of them. You almost certainly aren't going to have that level of cash right now (unless you've used an exploit), but we'll get there. I'm going to assume you have $60 or $70K right about now (it's what I have at this point). Wear Flowers in Your Hair [GTASABDSFWALK27] ------------------------- Map Icon - CJ [Garage] Prereqs - Are You Going to San Fierro Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.53% (32.62% Total) Unlocks - 555 We Tip mission, Zero's Property Okay, we need a few good men to work the new business. This is basically just a quick tour of San Fierro (the game kind of assumes this is your first time here). Obviously, we don't really need a tour at this point, but whatever; it's an easy mission, good for a few laughs. The bad news is that because it's so easy, there's no real reward for it. It does open up Zero's property to buy (great, another $30,000 we need for property). Buying Property, Part 2 [GTASABDSFWALK28] ----------------------- Map Icon - Z Prereqs - Wear Flowers in Your Hair Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.54% (33.16% Total) Unlocks - Air Raid Mission We may as well head over to Zero's and grab his property (that'll cost you $30,000). Don't worry; you'll eventually make it back. You don't get a save icon, but a yellow marker does appear at the door, and after a moment Zero will call, which opens up a new mission strand. Air Raid [GTASABDSFWALK29] -------- Map Icon - Z [The Zero Strand] Prereqs - Buying the RCZero Shop Rewards - $3,000 Completion Percentage - 0.53% (33.69% Total) Unlocks - Supply Lines Mission After the phone call from Zero, walk into the red marker (where the Z icon is). This is a pretty easy mission, just shoot down the enemy planes. The mini-gun has a nearly unlimited range, so if you can see them, you can shoot them. Watch especially for one area where the planes come in a group of four. It's best to get that group when they are far away (you don't have to move the mouse very much to get the entire formation). On the PC, this mission is a piece of cake (not so much on the Playstation version, from what I understand). Supply Lines [GTASABDSFWALK30] ------------ Map Icon - Z [The Zero Strand] Prereqs - Air Raid Rewards - $5,000 Completion Percentage - 0.54% (34.22% Total) Unlocks - New Model Army Mission Supply Lines is one of those missions that can seem really difficult (or even impossible), but really isn't so bad once you get the hang of using the right buttons. A lot of people have trouble controlling the plane. Here's how to fix that. Open your options menu and go to Controller Setup, and then Mouse Settings. Make sure Fly With Mouse is set to off (Fly With Mouse seems like a good idea until you actually try it and your plane flops around on the ground like a dying fish; forget it, it's worthless, turn it off). The game goes on to tell you to steer with the Q and E keys. Ignore it. You want to use the arrow keys almost exclusively for steering (unless you are on the ground, then and only then should you use the Q and E keys). Also, the up and down arrow keys control your attitude (e.g. up or down). By using the arrow keys to control the plane, flying becomes a lot easier (and don't bother with the camera too much, it'll follow the plane just fine most of the time unless you are making very sudden turns, which you shouldn't be doing anyway). Use W and S to accelerate and decelerate as needed. Try not to overcompensate and keep your altitude up (so you don't run into light poles and such), and you shouldn't have too much of a problem with this mission. When you get close to your target and have him lined up, drop your left hand to the arrow keys and your right to the mouse to control firing (get in the habit of using the right mouse button to control the guns, because often the left mouse button changes from firing to self destruct, and there is nothing more annoying than lining up your last target only to accidentally blow yourself up when you meant to shoot). The machine guns auto-aim to some extent, so you don't even need to be pointed exactly at your target. Don't worry about accelerating at that point, just let the plane glide. Once your target is down, reset your hands so that you can speed up again to get to the next victim. If you prefer, you can land the plane and shoot from the ground. Be aware, though, that the couriers will shoot back, and will have a much easier time hitting you when you are stationary. Your call. Once you take down all five, return to the rooftop, mission accomplished. New Model Army [GTASABDSFWALK31] -------------- Map Icon - Z [The Zero Strand] Prereqs - Supply Lines Rewards - $7,000, New Asset Completion Percentage - 0.54% (34.76% Total) Unlocks - New Model Army Mission Controlling a helicopter is more or less the same idea as controlling a plane. Use the arrow keys for the most part, although you will use the Q and E keys a bit more than you do with a plane. In this mission, you have a pretty tight time limit, so it behooves you to multitask. In other words, do something both on the way out and on the way in. Before you leave the base for the first time, grab a bomb (use the right control key when you are over an item to pick it up). Fly over to the first tank (the leftmost one), and drop the bomb on it (you are over the tank when your shadow appears on it). Make sure not to be too close to the ground or you will be caught in the explosion. Turn around and head back to the car. Move the barrel blocking the bridge to allow the car to pass. Return to the base and grab another bomb. Take out the next tank (the rightmost one). On your way back, remove another barrel to allow Zero to continue. Return to the base, but this time grab a plank. By now, Zero is probably stuck at the river, so create a bridge for him with the plank. Return to the base again and grab another bomb to take down the last tank. On the way back, move some more barrels to allow the car to advance. You may have to move quite a few, as Berkeley likes to block this particular spot. Once Zero is moving again, return to the base for the last time and grab another plank, and set it across the second river. Now it's just a matter of opening up the road to allow Zero to keep moving. Once Zero makes it to the enemy base, it's another mission accomplished. All together, Zero's missions have made you $15,000, exactly half of your initial investment. The good news is it is now an asset that will build up to $5,000 per day (that's quite a lot of rent Zero is paying!). Remember to stop by every once in a while to pick up your money, it'll take you three full pickups to break even, everything after that is profit. The Beefy Baron - OPTIONAL [GTASABDSFWALK32] -------------------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - New Model Army Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.00% (34.76% Total) Unlocks - None Walk into Zero's shop and head into the back room This is just a "for fun" mission. It's more or less the same as Supply Lines, just shoot as many of Berkeley's vans as you can in the three-minute time limit. The vans don't appear on the radar, you have to find them (but it's not hard, they are mostly the only vehicles on the road, and there are a ton of them). The little plane is pretty tough, but it's not indestructible. Don't get too close to the explosions or they will take you out. Learning New Moves [GTASABDSFWALK33] ------------------ Map Icon - Dumbbells Prereqs - The Green Sabre Rewards - New Fighting Moves Completion Percentage - 0.53% (35.29% Total) Unlocks - None We've done quite a few missions; so let's take care of a few things. Head for the San Fierro Gym (at the dumbbell icon) and go inside. You should have a high enough Muscle stat to just walk into the red marker. Beat the tar out of the instructor (or just force him off the mat) to win the battle and learn some new moves. Courier [GTASABDSFWALK34] ------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - The Green Sabre Rewards - New Asset Completion Percentage - 0.54% (35.83% Total) Unlocks - None Let us add another asset to our portfolio. Head into Queens to the Hippy Shopper (there are no real good landmarks to guide you to the shop. It's essentially a couple of blocks directly south of the San Fierro barber shop). Hop on the motorcycle out front to start up the mission. Compared to the Roboi Food Mart mission, this one is a piece of cake. Just make sure when the markers first come up to open up your big map and plan out your route. Just like the other courier mission, there are four levels to get through, and you get bonus cash for time left over and packages left over at the end of each level. Complete all four levels, and the shop becomes a new asset, generating up to $2,000 per day. Don't forget to stop by every now and again to pick up your cut. 555 We Tip [GTASABDSFWALK35] ---------- Map Icon - CJ [The C.R.A.S.H. Strand] Prereqs - Wear Flowers in Your Hair Rewards - Valet Uniform Completion Percentage - 0.53% (36.36% Total) Unlocks - Deconstruction, Valet Parking We've put our financial situation in order as much as we can for now, so let's advance the story a bit. Looks like we're doing another little errand for Tenpenny. The only hard part about this mission is the time limit. You have two and a half minutes to get to your garage and back to the valet parking. Not only that, on the way back, you have to keep the car spotless. My advice is to drive straight west until you come to Lombard Street, then it's a straight south drive to the garage. Use the opposite route on the way back. This minimizes the amount of turning you have to do (and makes it easier to get the car back without damage). If you take damage on the way back, it's pretty much mission over, unless it happens very close to the garage. If you have plenty of time, you may be able to pull it out, but most likely not. So drive very carefully on this stretch of the mission. Once you get the car to its designated parking spot, sprint to the marker to call to tip line, and it's another mission accomplished. When the mission ends, you get a brand new uniform put into your wardrobe. Buying Property, Part 3 [GTASABDSFWALK36] ----------------------- Map Icon - Green Houses Prereqs - Are You Going to San Fierro Rewards - New Save Points Completion Percentage - 0.54% + 0.53% (37.43% Total) Unlocks - None Okay, before we can take advantage of our new uniform, let's grab a couple of properties so that there is a convenient place to change (driving all the way down to the Badlands would be a bit of a pain, as I'm sure you'll agree). For this part of the walkthrough, you'll need $70,000. If you are not quite there, don't forget to collect your assets at Zero's and the Hippy Shopper. You could also run the courier mission again. However you manage it, just make sure to have the money. The first one we'll pick up is the hotel suite. It's the green house marker a couple of blocks east of the city hall square (northeast of the barber). You don't get a whole lot for your $50,000 here, just a wardrobe and a save icon. For the next property, drive northwest into Paradiso (about three blocks north of the city hall square). This is a little bit better of a deal, as your $20,000 gives you a wardrobe, a save icon, and a two car garage. Valet Parking [GTASABDSFWALK37] ------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - 555 We Tip Rewards - New Asset Completion Percentage - 0.54% (37.97% Total) Unlocks - None Use either of your new wardrobes to change into the valet uniform (it's under the Special category). Then return to where you did the last mission (remember it's directly east of Lombard Street). Walk into the red marker to start up this challenge. There are five levels to complete, and you get a tip at the end of each level (although the actual money amounts are negligible). You start off with 2 minutes, and you get a bonus for not damaging the cars and parking straight (you can get up to a minute for each parking job). The cars come pretty quick, and you shouldn't have much trouble keeping your time around the two-minute mark. As tempting as it may be, don't take out the competition. You'll get a wanted level and a time penalty for killing any of the other valets. Just ignore them; they don't get in the way very much. When you finish all five levels, the garage becomes a new asset, building up to $2,000 per day. You can do the valet mission over again if you like (though there is very little point, as the money you make from this mission is almost nothing). Return to your wardrobe and get back in your civvies. Deconstruction [GTASABDSFWALK38] -------------- Map Icon - CJ [Garage] Prereqs - 555 We Tip Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.53% (38.50% Total) Unlocks - Photo Opportunity Mission, Driving School Time to teach some construction workers the consequences of disrespecting your sister. There's nothing too hard about this, grab a tractor and run through the portables (don't hit the barrels). When that is done, push to porta-potty into the hole, grab the cement truck and back it into the marker, mission accomplished. There's a new red marker in the construction field. This let's you play around with the wrecker crane, although it doesn't actually appear to wreck anything. When you are done with it, return to the garage to save. Back to School [GTASABDSFWALK39] -------------- Map Icon - Red S Prereqs - Deconstruction Rewards - Driving Skill bonus Completion Percentage - 0.54% (39.04% Total) Unlocks - Super GT (at least all bronzes), Bullet (at least all sivers), and Hotknife (at all golds) vehicles From your garage, head south to the Red S marker. Go inside the school and find the red marker at the TV console. You have a total of 12 challenges to complete. For the most part, you should just follow the directions given to you, there's not much strategy I can impart other than to practice, and you'll eventually get the bronze (or gold, if that's what you are after). However, I will give some tips on some of the tougher challenges: Pop and Control: Just before you hit the spikes, let off the accelerator so you don't spin out of control. As soon as you pass them, floor it again, or you won't make it to the stopping point in time. Just as you get to the stopping point, slam on both brakes (S key and Space Key) so you don't hit the front cone. Burn and Lap: This is probably the hardest mission of the 12. To get bronze, you only need to do the course in 40 seconds, which is not so hard. But to get Gold, you need to do it in 36, which is surprisingly difficult. For some reason, turning off the Frame Limiter seems to help (Options, Display Settings, Advanced). Then go into first person mode (V key). The trick is to keep the accelerator down at all times, and use the space bar to slide around the curves. I found it was best to come into the turns along the outside edge. This let's you come off the break as soon as possible so you don't lose as much speed. Wheelie Weave: The tough part of this mission is not so much landing correctly in the red marker as it is avoiding damage. I'm more than half convinced that the damage value is randomly generated. I had the best luck letting go of the accelerator as soon as I came off the ramp, then steering very slightly to the right (not too much or you'll fall off your two wheels) to avoid damage to the side of your car. Use the accelerator only to keep the car balanced (your advance should be relatively slow), and work your way to the marker. As you get close, adjust your heading so you're facing straight. P.I.T. Maneuver: This can be kind of tricky, as you have to hit another car without taking any damage. The trick is to right next to him when you hit, as close as you can possibly get. Don't initiate the maneuver until you are about a third of the way up the side of the other car. Alley Oop: The main mistake most people will make here is on the landing. Accelerate toward the ramp and hit so that your inside wheels are as close to the edge as possible. As soon as you come off the ramp, let go of the accelerator and hit the left or right arrow key (depending on which way you are spinning) to help get your car spun around. When you hit the ground, do not slam on the brakes! If you do, your car will still be bouncing on its tires, and you will have more traction on one side than the other, resulting in a slide that will pull you right or left. Instead, give the car about half a second to let the wheels stabilize, and then slam on both brakes. City Slicking: The car you are using for this timed event is quick, but unfortunately is also very squirrelly around the turns. The best thing is to keep the turning to a bare minimum. I took a right out of the parking lot and then a left on the first street. This puts you on a straight-away all the way up to the northern end of the city. At the double road (where the road you are on ends), take a right and then your next left to get on the correct street, then just follow it to the marker (slow down when you hit the hill). Reverse your path to get back to the school. You need to complete this event in 100 seconds (or less) to get gold. Getting golds in all 12 events isn't exactly easy, but it's not all that hard either. And the reward is pretty nice, as you get all three cars spawned in the school parking lot (and all three of them are pretty nice vehicles). Dating Michelle Cannes - OPTIONAL [GTASABDSFWALK40] --------------------------------- Map Icon - Red Heart Prereqs - Green Sabre Rewards - Free Car Repair, Monster Truck, Racing Suit Completion Percentage - 0.00% (39.04% Total) Unlocks - None We've been ignoring the girlfriends for a while now, so let's do one now (no pun intended). Head to the driving school, where inside you will find Michelle hanging around. Michelle likes a big guy, so chow down on the fatty foods (remember you can only eat 11 per day) until you catch her interest. When you are big enough, she will give you her phone number, at which point you can call on her at her house between the hours of 0:00 and 12:00. First, let's talk about the gift. Head for the bottom of Lombard Street, where you will find flowers in one of grassy medians near the bottom of the street. For food dates, Michelle seems to like the bars the best. Unfortunately, they are all the way across town, so take a fast car (like the Bullet you hopefully got from the Driving School). Michelle will sometimes like to take the wheel. Just sit back and watch as she drives around town for a bit, then returns to the house. This is an easy date. When you hit 100% with her, she'll buy you a racing suit. Another girlfriend done. Photo Opportunity [GTASABDSFWALK41] ----------------- Map Icon - Syndicate [Syndicate] Prereqs - Deconstruction Rewards - Respect (15) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (39.57% Total) Unlocks - Jizzy Mission I'm not entirely sure what that symbol is supposed to be (it kind of looks like a stylized A), but it first appears near your garage (where the CJ icon was). I'll just call it Syndicate, and you'll get what I'm talking about. Grab a fast car or bike and go pick up Cesar. The dingbat has placed himself just about as far away as he possibly can, so drive over to Red County to go pick him up. On top of that, once you get him, you are forced to drive his P.O.S. low-rider, which just loves to spin out on all the cliff roads you're about to take as you drive the long trip back to Angel Pines. Once you finally make it there, head up to the roof and get in position. Zoom all the way out with the camera and wait. As the cars pull in, zoom in to get a good face shot (wait until the occupant gets out of the car first). The first two will be in the alley, while the second two will be to your right. When you have all four pictures, it's another mission accomplished. Jizzy [GTASABDSFWALK42] ----- Map Icon - Syndicate [Syndicate] Prereqs - Photo Oportunity Rewards - $3,000, Respect (20) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (40.11% Total) Unlocks - T-Bone Mendez Mission, Mountain Cloud Boy Mission Head back for the garage again and hit the marker. You now get a new icon on the board (a green skull, I guess) up near Gant Bridge. Head over there and talk with Jizzy. At this point you'll be gaining Jizzy's trust by doing a few errands for him. Just do what he asks, there's nothing very tough about these until the final mission where you have to run down the two cars. Use drive-bys to shoot at the vehicles. Try to get the limo first, because as soon as it blows, the other car will stop and the two occupants will get out (making it much easier to just run them over or pop them in the head). Oyster Collection [GTASABDSFWALK43] ----------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - None Rewards - Increased Lung Capacity Completion Percentage - 0.00% (40.11% Total) Unlocks - None We haven't done any collectables in a while. You may remember we have already gotten 20 of the 50 possible oysters while we were in Los Santos. It's now time to grab another 14 oysters available to us now. To find oyster 21, go to the tucking mission icon (the truck) and drive south past the loop-de-loops. The road goes south, takes a quick jag to the west, then turns south again. As soon as the road turns south, look for a very small bit of land that juts out into the water, facing east (it's a grassy knoll, and there is a bit of beach south of it). The oyster is a little hard to see as it is right against the rock, but it's not very deep. Look around the point where the beach meets the rock and you should find it. Now open up your map. To the far south you will see a bridge going over an inlet of water. You can reach it by going south on the road you are on, and when you get to the freeway overpass, drop off of it to the freeway below. Then just drive south, then west until you reach the bridge. Oyster #22 is under the center of this bridge. Oyster 23 is pretty easy from here. Just swim north until you reach a wooden bridge. Look under the center of the bridge for this one. Climb up to land on the west side up to the dirt road. With any luck, there should be a truck sitting there for your use. Drive into Angel Pine and leave using the road to the northeast. When you come to the next bridge, stop (you can drive down to the beach under the bridge if you like). Look near the center bridge support to find oyster 24. Drive back toward Angel Pine (but don't go into it, just drive past it). When you reach the main freeway on the west side of the county, get on it going north (you'll go through the Mount Chiliad tunnels). Stop when you reach the next bridge. Oyster 25 is under the bridge, roughly in the middle. (Congratulations, you've now collected half of the oysters in the game). Continue on the freeway to the north until you come into the southern part of San Fierro. To your right is a small lake and oyster 26 can be found in this lake. Drive over to the docks north of the airport (near where you did the NRG-500 challenge). Look for the big ship (you can hardly miss it). Oyster 27 is near the stern of the ship (it's fairly deep, hopefully you have built up a pretty decent lung capacity by now). The next two oysters are tricky. We have to enter the navy base again, and this is going to give you an automatic 5 star wanted level. I suggest grabbing the NRG-500 from the challenge area to the north, then continuing north to the base. The large building actually holds three ship docking bays. When you come in the gate, follow the building east (parallel the ship), and pull a u-turn to get to the back of the first bay. From there, there is a doorway to the second bay. Jump in to grab oyster 28. Swim out of the bay toward the big ship. You will find oyster 29 near the bow. Chances are you have about 200 cops shooting at you, so you may not make the long swim. If not, grab a car at the hospital, return to the base and drive alongside the ship to the front, and dive in. Good luck getting back out and to the Pay-n-Spray without dying. Get into the airport (using whatever method you find easiest). Follow the long runway to the northeast. Continue to where it ends, and hop in the water. You will be right on top of oyster 30. You may as well stay in the water for the next two oysters. Look to your northwest where you will spot two bridges. Swim that way, and pass under the railroad bridge, continuing on until you reach the suspension bridge (this is Garver Bridge). You will find oyster 31 underneath the northeastern most support tower. From there, look directly north where you will see a cargo ship anchored in the bay (unless it is foggy, in which case you'll just have to trust me that it's there). Swim to the ship (once again, it is quite a swim), and you'll find oyster 32 near the bow (western side of the ship). Return to dry land to your southwest and make your way over to the other bridge (Gant Bridge, on the northwest side of the city). There is another cargo ship docked nearby, and you will find oyster 33 near its stern (the western side). This oyster is hella deep, and you may drown before you get back to the surface. Good luck (you may want to do Oyster 34 first so that if you die you don't have to come all the way back here, up to you). Oyster 34 is under Gant Bridge. Look near the first support tower on the eastern side. And with that, you've picked up the last of the oysters you can (or should) get for now. T-Bone Mendez [GTASABDSFWALK44] ------------- Map Icon - Green Skull [Syndicate] Prereqs - Jizzy Rewards - $5,000, Respect (20) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (40.64% Total) Unlocks - Mike Toreno Mission Drive over to where the van is being robbed. Things get interesting as you have to chase down the four thieves on bikes. Just come up behind them and hit the right mouse button to grab the Yay. Once you have all four, return to the pleasure dome to complete the mission. Mike Toreno [GTASABDSFWALK45] ----------- Map Icon - Green Skull [Syndicate] Prereqs - T-Bone Mendez Rewards - $7,000, Respect (25) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (41.18% Total) Unlocks - Outrider Mission All right, we need to work on our finances a little more (we do still have a whole mess of safe houses to purchase). Return to Jizzy's club. Things seem to have escalated, as the hijackers now have a hostage. Follow the clues within the time limit (should be no problem). When you get to the van, you want to damage it, but don't blow it up. Eventually the goons bail out, and it's your job to take them down. Do this however you like (I enjoy a combination of running them down followed by a few shots to the head with my AK-47 to take out any stragglers). Blow up the van (remember the gas tank trick), then hop into the limo to hightail it out of there. Now just get to the Pay-n-Spray and from there back to the club. Mission accomplished. Head back for your garage and store that limo; it will be useful later on. Outrider [GTASABDSFWALK46] -------- Map Icon - Syndicate [Syndicate] Prereqs - Mike Toreno Rewards - $9,000, Respect (25) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (41.71% Total) Unlocks - Snail Trail Mission This is a pretty tough mission, not because of the enemy, but because you have a fairly tight timeline. Armor yourself up at the Ammu-Nation, and head to the gas station. Mentally mark T-Bone for a painful and gruesome death some time in the near future. Then drive to the next marker. Before you get on the bike, grab the sniper rifle and rocket launcher, they will be useful. Here's where it gets tight. The van will drive pretty slowly, but even so, you have a lot of work to do before it catches up with you. Drive like a maniac to the first roadblock (use the tunnel, it's faster). Your best bet, in my opinion, is to first take out the guys on the ground with the sniper rifle, then do the cars with the rocket launcher (if you have a clean shot at a gas tank you can also use the rifle if you like). If you take out the cars first, the guys tend to run around like headless chickens, making it a lot harder to bring them down. At the second and third block there will be snipers in the windows. Take care of the ground level stuff as usual, and then go after the snipers. If needed, drive a little closer. Remember, you have to keep ahead of that van, so keep moving at a brisk pace. The fourth roadblock doesn't have any snipers. At this point the van may be getting pretty close, so you might have to take out the cars first (or you risk blowing up the van right along with the blocking cars). Once all four blocks are down, follow the van to its destination (it's not very far). Once it gets there, it's mission complete. Return to the garage to save. Snail Trail [GTASABDSFWALK47] ----------- Map Icon - C [Syndicate] Prereqs - Outrider Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.54% (42.25% Total) Unlocks - Ice Cold Killa Mission The Syndicate symbol has been replaced by the C symbol, a sure sign Tenpenny is somewhere in the neighborhood. There's nothing overly difficult about this mission. Go get the rifle, then head across the street to the train station. Your target is on board, so you have to follow the train. Fortunately, someone left a Sanchez sitting right there for your use, so get on and follow the train for the long trip back to Los Santos. Once you get to Market Station and the train stops, gun the bike up the stairs and wait up top (but not too close, you don't want to spook your target). Wait for him to get in the cab and continue to follow. Watch your spook meter and don't get too close. When the target reaches his destination, cap him and his contact. Mission accomplished. Dating Katie Zahn - OPTIONAL [GTASABDSFWALK48] ---------------------------- Map Icon - Red Heart Prereqs - Green Sabre Rewards - Keep weapons when wasted, Romero Vehicle, Medic Uniform Completion Percentage - 0.00% (42.25% Total) Unlocks - None You can find Katie near the country club (just south of the Burger Shot and Gym icons) practicing martial arts or some such. Once you've secured her as a girlfriend, you can find Katie at her home in northwestern San Fierro between 12:00 and 24:00. Dating Katie is easy for a couple of reasons. One, you have a save point just south of her (so it's easy to advance time), and there are flowers just across the street from your save point (go across the street into the cul-de-sac behind the apartments and down the hill, you will find the flowers in someone's backyard at the bottom of the hill). Another reason why Katie is pretty easy is that for food dates, she likes diners, and there is a diner about 30 feet away. Convenient! The hardest date with Katie is the driving date, as she likes to go real slow. Dating Katie gives a nice bonus. Whenever you are wasted, you get to keep your weapons and there is no cost for the medical bills. Cool. When you are done with Katie, you've completed four out of the six girlfriends in the game. The last two aren't available yet, so you're done with the women for now. Ice Cold Killa [GTASABDSFWALK49] -------------- Map Icon - Syndicate [Syndicate] Prereqs - Snail Trail Rewards - $12,000, Respect (30) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (42.78% Total) Unlocks - Pier 69 Mission All right, we've fooled around for long enough. It's time to start taking down the Syndicate, starting with the small guy. Head over to the club. Unfortunately, the goons won't let you in, so you need an alternate route of entry. They seem to be doing some work on the bridge and there's some scaffolding you can climb up to the south of the club. Go up and get onto the roof, and head inside. Crouch and work your way down to the ground floor. When you get close to Jizzy, a cut scene starts up. After it ends, take down the guards and everyone else who is shooting at you. Don't worry too much about Jizzy, you'll catch him. When you're done in the club, head outside and give chase, a drive-by style shooting or two ought to blow his car. When he bails, run him down, or just get out and cap him. Grab his phone, and it's yet another mission accomplished. We made $12K on that mission; these things are really starting to pay off! Hopefully you have a good $50K by now (you are grabbing your asset money from time to time, right?) Pier 69 [GTASABDSFWALK50] ------- Map Icon - Syndicate [Syndicate] Prereqs - Ice Cold Killa Rewards - $15,000, Respect (40) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (43.32% Total) Unlocks - Toreno's Last Flight Mission, Sniper Rifle unlocked at Ammu-Nation Okay, join Cesar up on the roof. Once Woozie's men make a mess of things, snipe the guys on the roof. Unfortunately, things don't really go as planned. Run back down to street level and go after T-Bone. Take down some of the enemy if you like, but your main focus should be on getting the target. Once you catch up with him, it's pretty much the end of the line for old T-Bone. That ought to teach him to choke poor CJ; perhaps in the future he'll be a bit more selective about that kind of thing (well, if he had a future, anyway). Ryder makes a run for it, so give chase. Get in the boat and hunt the traitor down. I personally never had much luck with drive-bys in a boat, but you can give it a go if you like. I just shoved his boat into a dock and then pushed it upside down, which killed Ryder nicely (once he's up against the docks, you can also disengage from the boat (F key) and start shooting at him, but if he manages to get away, don't forget to re-engage the boat controls). Make a nice leisurely drive back to the garage and save the game, you've finished another exciting mission. Only one Syndicate member left to take out. Toreno's Last Flight [GTASABDSFWALK51] ------------------- Map Icon - Syndicate [Syndicate] Prereqs - Pier 69 Rewards - $18,000, Respect (50) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (43.85% Total) Unlocks - None (but required for Yay Ka-Boom-Boom) Time to go after the big guy. You may want to grab some armor for this mission. What makes this more of a pain than anything else are the cops, who seem to take exception at you shooting down Toreno's goons (for some reason). Anyway, as you get near the chopper, start taking down guards (use the AK-47 or sniper rifle, whichever you like better). The chopper takes off as you reach the rooftop, so go grab the rocket launcher and go after it. There is an FCR-900 bike to grab if you need it (it's no NRG-500, but it's pretty fast). Get onto the freeway, as the chopper will follow it south. You may have several stars worth of wanted level by the time you hit the freeway, but do the best you can. Get ahead of the chopper, pull out your rockets, and let fly. If you don't take it down before it gets past you, continue south and repeat. As long as the cops don't get you, it's not really much of a problem to shoot down that chopper. So much for Toreno. Mountain Cloud Boys [GTASABDSFWALK52] ------------------- Map Icon - W [The Woozie Strand] Prereqs - Jizzy Rewards - $5,000, Respect (10) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (44.39% Total) Unlocks - Ran Fa Li Mission, AK-47 unlocked at Ammu-Nation Bring some armor and a good weapon (such as the trusty AK-47). Pick up Woozie and drive around the block to the next marker. Crouch down when all hell breaks loose and start popping enemies in the head. Watch out for the sniper up on the roof. Once you get into the car, drive until Woozie takes out the rest of the ambush. Help him out with some drive-by style shooting if you like. When you're done, Woozie gives you a cool 5K for your help. Ran Fa Li [GTASABDSFWALK53] --------- Map Icon - W [The Woozie Strand] Prereqs - Mountain Cloud Boys Rewards - $6,000, Respect (15) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (44.92% Total) Unlocks - Lure Mission This is a fairly easy driving mission. Head over to the airport parking garage (while you are down here, look for the armor that is near the entrance to the garage, on the right). The sabre you are after is in the back. As soon as you get into the car, the ambush is sprung (naturally). The Da Nang boys will block most of the exits, but they leave enough open so that you can make your way out. When you come out of the airport (run the blockade), take your first right and head up the coast road. A motorcycle or two may follow you, so brush them off. Continue up the road to the marker and it's yet another mission accomplished. Lure [GTASABDSFWALK54] ---- Map Icon - W [The Woozie Strand] Prereqs - Ran Fa Li Rewards - $8,000, Respect (50) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (45.45% Total) Unlocks - Amphibious Assault Mission Make the long journey from Woozie's place down to the starting point, where you will pick up your two tails. From there, just follow the markers. The Da Nang boys will be shooting at you the entire time, so try to keep ahead of them far enough so that they don't hit too often. Easier said than done, I know. There are places where you are going up hill on the dirt road, and your SUV won't go all that fast. If they get right next to you, brush them off into a cliff (or preferably off the edge of one). Amphibious Assault [GTASABDSFWALK55] ------------------ Map Icon - W [The Woozie Strand] Prereqs - Lure Rewards - $11,000, Respect (25) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (45.99% Total) Unlocks - The Da Nang Thang Mission Although there are plenty of knives in this mission, the real weapon of choice is the silenced pistol. Hopefully you still have the one Cesar gave you a few missions back, but if not, make a quick stop at Ammu-Nation and pick one up. You don't need a whole lot of ammo, one set should be enough. Walk into the red marker (between the hours of 20:00 and 06:00) to fire up the mission. There is a minimum requirement for lung capacity, but if you've been following this guide (and collecting the oysters), this should not be an issue. Drive down to the docks and hop into the water. Just follow the onscreen prompts to get through the first part; all of this should be old hat to you by now. When you reach open water, it gets a little trickier. Don't swim on the surface or you'll attract the attention of the guards on the boat. If you hear them make a comment, immediately dive under water. Swim toward the ship (always under the surface). Make sure that when you come up for air, you keep out of the spotlights (dive under water when they get near). Once you are alongside the ship, I found the spotlights couldn't see you. The platform is on the northern side of the ship, near the middle. Climb up and head up the stairs. Go into a crouch and start watching for guards. This is where the silenced pistol comes in handy. Make your way east and then down into the interior of the ship and finally come to the marker to plant the bug. You can continue into the ship if you like (though there is nothing really very interesting to see). When you're done, return to the stairs and back into the water. From here it's another long swim back to the docks. Just take it nice and easy, stay underwater when swimming, and you'll be fine. Buying Property, Part 4 [GTASABDSFWALK56] ----------------------- Map Icon - Green Houses Prereqs - Green Sabre Rewards - New Save Points Completion Percentage - 0.53% + 0.54% (47.06% Total) Unlocks - None We've made a ton of cash in the last batch of missions. There's a whole mess of safe houses we still have to buy, so you may be wondering what the heck I'm waiting for. Well, I was waiting until we had about $120,000 so we could finish off the two remaining properties in the badlands. You should have that amount now (if you aren't quite there, you'll need to make it. Remember you have $9,000 in assets that can be picked up, and if that still isn't enough, cap a few drug dealers or something). Drive down to Angel Pine where your other save point is. Just down the street is a green house icon. This one will cost you $20K, and it only comes with a wardrobe and a save icon (but at least it's slightly better than the original point, which doesn't even have a wardrobe to use). The second property we are going to acquire is in Whetstone. It's a big old farm, and you can only get to it from the north. This sucker will set you back $100K. Ouch. It's big, but in the end, there's nothing here more exciting than a wardrobe and a save icon. There are some vehicles outside you can play around with, as well as some fun jumps (no unique jumps here, though). We just bought what are pretty much the two most useless properties in the game. If you're like me, you're probably about broke now, but at least we're done with the badlands. Just a few more properties to buy in San Fierro now. The Da Nang Thang [GTASABDSFWALK57] ----------------- Map Icon - W [The Woozie Strand] Prereqs - Amphibious Assault Rewards - $15,000, Respect (30) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (47.59% Total) Unlocks - None (but required for Yay Ka-Boom-Boom) Armor up for this mission, but don't bother with buying any weapons. This starts out pretty cool; you're the gunner on a helicopter. Shoot down as many of the Da Nang as you can, but before too long things get bad and you end up in the drink. To make matters worse, the only weapon you managed to hang onto is your knife. Great. Swim toward the marker and get aboard. Though the game seems to want you to treat this as a stealth mission, in reality it's not. It's more of a go in blazing mission. Take down the first guy with your knife to get a rifle. That's slightly better, but subsequent guys will have machine guns (silly CJ, always bringing a rifle to an SMG fight), so take out a few of those to get some real weapons. Work your way toward the stern of the ship (you'll be climbing over the crates). Watch for the health icon as you make your way back. Before you reach the superstructure, you'll find the entrance to the hold. Head down and take out a few more guards. Watch out for the guy throwing the grenade. When you make it to the end, release the prisoners. Now head for the bridge, taking down guards as you go. When you get there, you get to have a big knife fight with the boss guy. He's really not all that tough, and a couple of good whacks ought to do it. Return to where the prisoners are to complete another mission and earn some much-needed cash. (By the way, this is where one of your three remaining photo ops is, but unfortunately you lost your camera in the crash. Too bad. We'll come back for it later). Yay Ka-Boom-Boom [GTASABDSFWALK58] ---------------- Map Icon - Syndicate [Syndicate] Prereqs - Toreno's Last Flight and The Da Nang Thang Rewards - $25,000, Respect (60) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (48.13% Total) Unlocks - Monster Mission, Wang Cars Property, Victim Clothing, M4 unlocked at Ammu-Nation We finished off the members of the syndicate, now it's time to shut down the operation once and for all. Pick up the specially modified car from the garage, and head over to the factory. Take out the two goons in front to get through the gate. Run over the guards inside if you like on your way in, but don't get carried away, your main goal is to reach the marker. Make a short jump to get onto the factory floor, and park the car where indicated. Hit the left mouse button to arm the bomb, and high tail it out of there. When you are out front, make your way to the gate. Grab the car and return back toward the factory, you'll need to jump your way out. You may remember this jump, since we've already done it as a unique jump. This time, though, you are in a P.O.S. low-rider instead of a super fast NRG-500, so get up a little speed to get over the wall. Keep it centered on the ramp or you'll hit the crates. If you don't make it, another car will be provided for you, you'll just have to fight your way to it. Once you are out of the compound, return to the garage for another mission accomplished. You'll get two phone calls. The first is from an unknown source and will be your first mission in the Las Venturas area. The second is from Jethro, who alerts you to a little business opportunity. Buying Property, Part 5 [GTASABDSFWALK59] ----------------------- Map Icon - CV Prereqs - Yay Ka-Boom-Boom Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.53% (48.66% Total) Unlocks - Zeroing In Mission To buy this next property, you need $50,000. Since our last buying spree, we've already made $40K off missions, so we only need another $10K. Easy! Grab your three assets (Zero's RC Shop, the Valet Parking, and the Hippy Mart). Hopefully all three have maxed out by now, so that's $9,000 right there. For your last thousand, take out a drug dealer (or a couple enemy gang if you can't find a dealer), or just wait a bit for Zero's shop to build up a little more cash. Once you have your $50K, head down the street from your garage to the Auto Dealership (where the CV icon is) and buy it. This opens up your next mission. Zeroing In [GTASABDSFWALK60] ---------- Map Icon - CV [Steal Cars Strand] Prereqs - Bought Wang Cars Rewards - $5,000, Respect (5) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (49.20% Total) Unlocks - Test Drive Mission Follow the markers, and be somewhat snappy about it (you don't want them to fade to zero or you lose her). When you see the target car, ram her (the game tells you to do a P.I.T. so do that if you prefer. Personally I just ram the crap out of her and take the car over to the Pay-n-Spray to get it fixed up, but whatever you want to do). Once she exits the car, grab it and return to the garage. There's nothing hard about this mission unless you drive too slowly and lose the signal. Test Drive [GTASABDSFWALK61] ---------- Map Icon - CV [Steal Cars Strand] Prereqs - Zeroing In Rewards - $5,000, Respect (5) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (49.73% Total) Unlocks - Customs Fast Track This mission would be a piece of cake if it weren't for the small problem that Cesar takes you on a tour of the damn city. After all, why go straight back to the garage when you can zip down every road in San Fierro with the cops on your tail? Anyway, just stay close to Cesar and do what he does (except for that spin around thing, don't do that). When Cesar is finished messing around, you will end up back at the garage. By the way, you can check out the cars you've stolen so far in your dealership, Wang Cars. Customs Fast Track [GTASABDSFWALK62] ------------------ Map Icon - CV [Steal Cars Strand] Prereqs - Test Drive Rewards - Up to $10,000, Respect (5) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (50.27% Total) Unlocks - Puncture Wounds Mission, Exports and Imports (list 1), Wheel Angels Head to the docks (the easiest way to get there from your garage is to drive across the street to the train station and follow the tracks south. One of the tracks veers off to the left, follow it east to the end and you're at the docks). Grab the crates one by one and put them in the markers. Once you get the third crate unloaded, hop out of the crane and help Cesar. You have three sets of goons to take down. When they're done, return to the garage. Try not to damage the car on your way, as your reward is deducted for car damage. Export Board, List 1 [GTASABDSFWALK63] -------------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - Customs Fast Track Rewards - Up to $429,000, Monster Car, Windsor Car Completion Percentage - 0.53% (50.80% Total) Unlocks - Exports and Imports (list 2) No, that isn't a typo. Almost half a million dollars is up for grabs in this mission, and it's just one of three lists to complete. Basically, this is the end of your money problems for the rest of the game. The money you get for a car is reduced if the car is damaged. Fortunately, there is a Pay-n-Spray just up the street (from the crane, follow the tracks to the station, the spray shop is just to the north near Wang Cars). Use it! The $100 you spend to fix up the car will repay in the thousands when you get the car onto the ship. Every car you bring to the ship can be imported later on for a price. If you've done the driving school, you probably don't need them, but it's nice to know they're there. In addition, when you bring in the fifth car on the list, you get the first bonus car available for import. Similarly, you get another bonus car at the completion of the list. This is true for all three boards. The mission is simple; just deliver the cars that are listed on the board (near the water doors you used for the NRG-500 challenge). It helps if you have been paying attention to the cars and what they are called. I'll try to help you out a bit. Here is a list of the cars you need for this board, and how much you will get for each one. Don't worry about doing them in any particular order, just bring them in as you find them. Patriot ($40,000) - This is a Hum-Vee look alike. You really can't miss it. Unfortunately, you don't often see them on the street. But lucky for you, there's one parked in the parking lot of Easter Bay Chemicals (south of the airport). Sanchez ($8,000) - This is the 2-stroke dirt bike you used to get to the top of Mount Chiliad. You can find them all over the place on the street in the country. If you are really stuck, look at your newly acquired farm property in Whitmore. Stretch ($40,000) - Another easy one, it's the limo. If you followed my advice and parked the Stretch you got from one of the earlier missions, you already have this car sitting in your garage. If not, look around the Paradiso or Juniper Heights area. Feltzer ($35,000) - This is a 2 door convertible. You can find them pretty readily on the streets of San Fierro. If you are really stuck, there is one parked at a gas station in the Badlands (take the main coastal freeway to the far southeast corner of the Badlands). Remington ($30,000) - The Remington is a low-rider, and you can find them on the streets of San Fierro easily enough. There is also one spawned near where Cesar used to live (east of the Observatory in Los Santos). Buffalo ($35,000) - This is a muscle car with twin hood scoops on the hood. I had a hard time finding this anywhere, but there is one parked outside of Catalina's hideout. It's a bit of a drive. Sentinel ($35,000) - The Sentinel is a 4-door luxury sedan. Look for the raised ridge down the center of the hood, and the thin stripe along the side. Infernus ($95,000) - The Infernus is a high performance sports car. It has a flat sloped front end, and a low profile spoiler on the back. Camper ($26,000) - This is a VW Bus look alike. You can find one in an alley near the Burger Shot in Garcia (in San Fierro). Admiral ($35,000) - Another 4 door luxury sedan, this one has two stripes on the side (one at mid level, one along the bottom). You can usually find one parked outside of Jizzy's club. When you finish all ten cars, you get a $50,000 bonus, as if you didn't already get paid enough. Let's do another board. Export Board, List 2 [GTASABDSFWALK64] -------------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - Export Board, List 1 Rewards - Up to $452,000, Bandito Car, Turismo Car Completion Percentage - 0.54% (51.34% Total) Unlocks - Exports and Imports (list 3) Slamvan ($19,000) - This looks like a really buffed out El Camino. They're pretty tough to find. The best advice I can give is to get the one parked in Los Santos. Get on the train tracks and follow them all the way to the El Corona station. When you come out head for your nearby save point, then drive east. You should run across the vehicle shortly, parked in front of a small house. You can also find them driving around the Prickle Pines in Las Venturas. Blista Compact ($35,000) - This is a two door hatchback, one of the smaller cars in the game. It is dual color, and you can find one just inside the airport grounds (near the entrance, but behind the fence). They're common enough driving around on the street, and fairly distinctive. Stafford ($35,000) - This is a four door luxury car. You can find one parked in front of the hotel in Queens (you have a save point there). Sabre ($19,000) - On the street the runs in front of your garage, about every third car is a Sabre. It's a muscle car with a fastback rear end. FCR-900 ($10,000) - This is a crotch rocket. They aren't as easy to find as you may think (most people on the street will be driving PCJ-600s). If you can't find one, you can make the very long drive into Las Venturas. Take the Garver Bridge, follow the freeway to the south and into the city. At the Blackfield Intersection, head north, and then east at the Pilson Intersectin. Parked at the pizza place in Roca Escalante, you will find the bike. Cheeta ($105,000) - The Cheeta is a hella expensive sports car (it looks like a Lamborghini, with the slightly exposed engine in the back), and they aren't easy to find. Your best bet is to check out the high-end areas. I found one in Las Venturas (just follow the train tracks until you reach Prickle Pine (there's a Red House icon nearby)). Supposedly, there is one parked in front of one of the houses here, but I never saw it spawn. Still, if you drive around a bit, you should see one on the street. Rancher ($40,000) - This is the dual colored SUV you see all over Red County. Just drive over there (the Easter Bay Tunnel is the easiest route) and you should have no problem picking one up. Stallion ($19,000) - This is a convertible that looks a lot like a Mustang. You can often find one parked behind the Supa Save (about a block south of the Binco clothing store in Juniper Hill. Tanker ($35,000) - This is a semi-truck. You can find one in the desert area (go across Gant bridge, go ahead, it's okay to go into Las Venturas now). Stay on the freeway until you see the diner on your right. Comet ($35,000) - This is a two door convertible sports car. You can find one parked at the Avispa Country Club. When you finish all ten cars on this list, you get an extra $100,000 bonus. Export Board, List 3 [GTASABDSFWALK65] -------------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - Export Board, List 2 Rewards - Up to $561,000, Vortex Car, Bullet Car Completion Percentage - 0.53% (51.87% Total) Unlocks - None One last board to go. Let's get started. Blade ($19,000) - This is the convertible low-rider. There are plenty driving around San Fierro, just hang out near your garage and you should see one drive by soon enough. Freeway ($10,000) - The Freeway is the Harley Davidson looking bike you see driving the roads of Red County. I trust you won't have much of a problem tracking one of these down. Mesa ($25,000) - This is a Jeep. The only place I could find one is parked at Mount Chiliad, near the finish line for the race challenges you did earlier. ZR 350 ($45,000) - This is another high performance sports car. You can find one in The Clown's Pocket parking lot (there's a red house icon on the casino). Euros ($35,000) - This is a two door sports car. You can find a Euros at the Camel Toe Casino in Las Venturas. There is another red house icon right where the car is parked. Banshee ($45,000) - The Banshee is a convertible sports car. There is one parked on the same block as the Gym in San Fierro. Super GT ($105,000) - This one is easy. If you've done all the driving school missions and gotten at least bronze medals, the Super GT is parked outside the school. Journey ($22,000) - This one is tricky. Go to the very top of Mount Chiliad to find the vehicle. That was the easy part. Now drive that big old RV down the dirt path. That's the hard part. Once you're down, take it pretty easy going back to the crane, you don't want to tip it over and have to go get another one. (You actually may find one on the way down to the mountain; they're not really all that uncommon on these country roads). Huntley ($40,000) - This is a high end SUV. Unfortunately, it's one of the rarer cars in the game, and there is no consistent spawn point. You can cruise the upper level neighborhoods (such as Prickle Pine or Mulholland) and see what you find. The other option (and perhaps your best bet) is to cruise the driving school parking lot. Sometimes the car will spawn there. Drive around the block a few times. If you've gotten all gold and the Hotknife is outside, be sure to take that to get it out of the way (the Huntley spawns in the same place). BF Injection ($15,000) - Drive down to the beaches in the far south side of Flint County (you may remember we did a Unique Jump off a sand dune down here). You'll find this car parked on the beach next to a giant dune. At the end of this (rather difficult) list, you make a cool $200,000 bonus. You should, at the end of all three boards, have around $1.4 million or so. This is more money than you will need for the rest of the game. Buying Property, Part 6 [GTASABDSFWALK66] ----------------------- Map Icon - Green Houses Prereqs - Are You Going to San Fierro Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.54% + 0.53% + 0.54% + 0.53% (54.01% Total) Unlocks - New Save points Now that we're rich, let's go ahead and buy the four remaining properties in San Fierro. They are in Doherty, Hashbury, China Town, and Calton Heights. There's nothing special about these, the interiors are all ones you've seen before, except for Hashbury (which has a nice entryway to it). These are just steps to 100% completion. Puncture Wounds [GTASABDSFWALK67] --------------- Map Icon - CV [Steal Cars Strand] Prereqs - Customs Fast Track Rewards - $5,000, Respect (5) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (54.55% Total) Unlocks - Wang Cars Asset This is a pretty easy mission. Get in front of the target car and drop a stinger to blow her tires. Once she gets out, grab the car and return to the garage. Nothing to it. At this point, Wang Cars becomes an asset, worth up to $8,000 per day (not that you need it now). Trucking Vehicle Mission, Part 2 [GTASABDSFWALK68] -------------------------------- Map Icon - Truck Prereqs - Tanker Commander Rewards - Up to $17,000 Completion Percentage - 0.53% (55.08% Total) Unlocks - RC Haul Asset We're just about done in San Fierro, but before we leave, let's go finish off the last two missions of the Trucking Vehicle set. Both missions involve bringing a truck into Las Venturas. In the first, you have some delicate goods that have a time deadline, so you must both drive carefully and quickly. Don't stress too much over the time limit, just take it nice and easy, your deadline is pretty generous. The second one is a bit harder. Like previous missions, you have the police on your tail, and with a four star wanted level, it's not easy to make it all the way into Las Venturas. Speed helps here, and push the cops off into the water or buildings or whatever as the opportunity presents itself. Once you deliver the last truck, you get the property as an asset, which generates up to $2,000 per day. Don't bother to return to San Fierro once you finish the final trucking mission, you may as well go to your only save point in the new city; we'll be going on from here. I6.

The Desert and Las Venturas | [GTASATDLVTOP] 0================================0 \XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/ J1. City Overview [GTASATDLVOV] ================= There are essentially two sections to this area, the desert (which consists of Tierra Robada and Bone County) and the city (Las Venturas). To the far west is Tierra Robada, a rural area with lots of canyons. You'll find Bayside to the west, home of the boating school. El Quebrados is east of Bayside, and has a small rural hospital and police station. East of El Quebrados are Aldea Malvada, Valle Ocultado, and Arco Del Oeste, canyon areas with a collection of high bluffs. You will discover the Sherman Dam to the south of these landmarks. On the eastern side of the desert, to the north, is an aircraft graveyard. There is a functional landing strip here, though it has been abandoned for a long while. South of the airport is a no fly zone (however nothing should be read into this, the government has confirmed there is nothing there, so don't bother to go there as they will not be responsible for any stray SAM missiles that may accidentally be launched in your direction). To the south is Fort Carson, a touristy area (home of the worlds biggest cock), and Hunter Quarry. East of the desert is the city of Las Venturas, ("it used to be a patch of desert, then it was a mob town. Now, it is the corporate headquarters of America"). The west side of the city is dominated by the Las Venturas Airport. To the north of the airport is the exclusive area of Prickle Pine, where the rich and famous live. Down the center of the city is the Strip, where many famous casinos are to be found, such as the Four Dragons, The Camel's Toe, Caligula's, and the Come-A- Lot. Around the edges of the city are the residential areas, such as Rockshore West and Spiny Bed. To the far northwest is the KACC Military Fuel base. Hotels and marriage chapels are scattered throughout the city.

[The Toreno Strand] Prereqs - Yay Ka-Boom-Boom Rewards - Up to $5,000 Completion Percentage - 0.53% (55.61% Total) Unlocks - Highjack Mission Go to the marker to get in touch with your mysterious mission sponsor. You still don't yet know who he is, nor will you find out from this mission. First you have to pass a little test. Nice truck. Time is less your enemy here than the terrain is; take it fairly easy or you'll find yourself tipped over, or worse, dunked into the ocean. Use the four-wheel steering to make the sharp turns where you need to, but use it sparingly, as it's easy to spin out with the extra steering on. If you want to come in first (and make the entire $5,000), you need to beat 4:20. Five minutes will put you in third place. To pass the mission, you have to complete the course in 6:30. Highjack [GTASATDLVWALK02] -------- Map Icon - ? [The Toreno Strand] Prereqs - Monster Rewards - $7,000 Completion Percentage - 0.54% (56.15% Total) Unlocks - Interdiction Mission The only tricky part of this mission is staying alongside the truck until Cesar finally decides to jump for it, especially when the truck is throwing cars your way. Stay even with the door of the cab as best you can. Once Cesar is in the truck, wait until he gets control. Then it's a nice leisurely drive back to the garage. Interdiction [GTASATDLVWALK03] ------------ Map Icon - T [The Toreno Strand] Prereqs - Highjack Rewards - $1,000 Completion Percentage - 0.53% (56.68% Total) Unlocks - Verdant Meadows Mission Back at Toreno's place, grab a car and head for the ghost town. From there, you need to grab the rocket launcher and the vehicle of your choice (I prefer the Sanchez, but it's your call. I dare you to take the Quad). The path up the mountain starts just to your south. Once you're up top, a couple of bogies appear. Shoot them down, but try not to make them crash right on top of you. There is a health icon in the barn if you need it. Unfortunately, more choppers appear once the first two are down. Keep bringing them down, eventually the enemy runs out of copters. For some reason, your guys decide to drop their cargo halfway across the desert. There's nothing for it but to go retrieve it, with a two star wanted level. Once you grab the package, your wanted level drops to one star, so getting back is not quite as dangerous. Buying Property, Part 1 [GTASATDLVWALK04] ----------------------- Map Icon - Green Houses Prereqs - Yay Ka-Booom-Boom Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.54% + 0.53% + 0.54% (58.29% Total) Unlocks - New Save points We have the money, so let's go buy the three safe houses that are available to us in the desert. The house in Fort Carson will cost you $30K, while the other two are $20K apiece. The interiors are all the same, and nothing special, they have a save icon and a wardrobe. None of the three have a garage. Collecting Horseshoes, Part 1 [GTASATDLVWALK05] ----------------------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - Yay Ka-Booom-Boom Rewards - Increased Luck, $100 per shoe ($2,500 in this set) Completion Percentage 0.00% (58.29% Total) Unlocks - None Let's do the first half of the horseshoes, as it'll serve as a good tour of the new city anyway. So go ahead and get out your horseshoe map. Note that all 50 shoes are in the actual city; none of them are in the desert. We'll start, naturally enough, with shoe #1. Open up your map and find the airstrip to the north (there's a red house icon near it). Directly to the east of the airstrip is a freeway running north to south. Go to the north end of it and follow the freeway to the east until you see the "Welcome to Fabulous Las Ventura" sign in the median. Your horseshoe will be right under it. Continue east on the freeway, and when you see houses to your left, cut across the sand to reach them. Make your way to the train tracks and follow them west to where they leave the development. Check the last house south of the tracks for horseshoe #2. To the north of you is a golf course. Drive over to the entrance (it's on the western side). The horseshoe is actually on the club building near a window at the back. Climb onto the roof to find horseshoe #3. To the east of the Prickle Pines development is a set of apartment buildings, in the center of which is a pool. You will find horseshoe #4 on the northern side of the pool. To the east of the apartments are a series of tennis courts, and you'll find shoe #5 is in the southeast court. From the courts, drive south back onto the road, and follow it south and then east as it curves. Turn right (south) to leave the Prickle Pine district. You will cross over the freeway, and to your left is an unmarked business (a storage facility, maybe?). Go in and past all the garages to the back, where you will find shoe #6. Come out of the storage place and get on the road south of it, going east. Watch for the Soapy's car wash sign, and a billboard with a cereal ad on it. Shoe #7 is at the base of that billboard (you can go through the car wash to get to it). You can't get horseshoe #8 right now, so we'll move on to horseshoe #9. Drive back west on the road you are on and then go south when it ends. Watch for a short wall on your right (it's attached to the gift shops). Climb over to get your prize. You also cannot get shoe #10, so we'll continue with the next one. Drive south past the gift shop and look for a hotel on your left (it's in the same block as the Pay-n-Spray. Pull into the parking lot. Now you have to climb up to the third level, but this is pretty easy to do (you don't even need to use a car roof). Horseshoe #11 is on the western side of the hotel. Note that there is some armor on the second level, if you need it. To the north of the hotel is an alley (there are a series of power lines running down it). You will find Horseshoe #12 in this alley. Continue to the end of the alley and crash through the gate. Drive north and take your first left. Pull into the parking lot to your right (there are green bushes bordering it), and climb onto the roof of the western building to find Horseshoe #13. Continue to the west (cross over the freeway). Soon you will see a steakhouse and a small casino to the left. Stop here and get on the roof of the steakhouse. You shouldn't have any problem locating shoe #14 (it's near the casino). Horseshoe #15 is to your north, in the cargo storage yard. Go into the entrance and head to the northwest side. Use your car to get onto the wall, and from there you should be able to jump over and get on top of the cargo crates, where you will find the shoe. Leave the yard driving west. At the end of the street you will see a restaurant (there's a baseball stadium to your south). You should see a blue wall connected to the restaurant, and you'll notice shoe #16 on top of it (you'll need to use a car to get up to it). Now open your map. To the west (and a bit south) you will see a red house icon. Go there now. Once you are there, look to your north to find a red building surrounded by a wall with barbwire on it. Circle the building until you find a way in and look on the western side to locate shoe #17. Get back on the western most road and drive past your red house icon again going south. When the road curves to the east, there is an office complex to your south. Horseshoe #18 is in the bushes. You'll need to make a jump to grab it out of the air. Horseshoes 19, 20, and 21 are inside the airport grounds. We could get them now, but it's more trouble than it's worth, so let's leave them for a bit. Instead continue south along the road you are on, and you will eventually see the college in front of you. You will find horseshoe 22 in the center of the quad. Get back on the road north of the college and drive east over the freeway. Once you cross over the freeway and get past the storage crates, turn right into the businesses. Drive south and stop at the garbage cans to the south of the building with the yellow roof (the Sumo building). Hop the wall to find horseshoe 23. Drive around the building just to your south to the truck bays to find horseshoe 24. To the south of you across the freeway is a big church. You will find horseshoe #25 on the roof near the main eastern entrance. You can actually run up the side of this sloped building to grab the prize. From the church, make your way east to get underneath the freeway (where the Mako Span starts). You will find shoe 26 under the bridge at one of the support pylons. Continue past the bridge to the east. You will pass the Last Dime Hotel and reach a series of houses. Look in the backyard of one of the houses to catch Horseshoe #27. To reach Horseshoe #28, just go north across the street to another series of houses and check their backyards as well. Don't worry about horseshoes 29, 30, and 31 right now; we'll come back for them later. Instead drive east along the freeway to your north. As the freeway begins to curve to the north, you should see a church to your left. Get onto the roof (you may have to use a car to get up there) to grab Horseshoe #32. From the church, go directly east past the train tracks, where you will find more blue-collar businesses. Look toward the truck bays to the south to find horseshoe 33. Okay, that's half of the shoes, go back and save. We'll hit a couple of missions before we continue on. Verdant Meadows [GTASATDLVWALK06] --------------- Map Icon - T [The Toreno Strand] Prereqs - Interdiction Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.53% (58.82% Total) Unlocks - Abandoned Airstrip property, Race tournaments This is just a cut scene mission. Toreno wants you to go buy the abandoned airstrip up north for one dollar. Once you're done talking with Toreno, the mission is over. You can go buy the property (which now has a green house icon on it, as well as a plane icon) whenever you like. You will also get a call from Jethro about street races. If you open your map and look closely, you will see four checkered flag icons (one in Los Santos, one in San Fierro, and two in Las Venturas). They're a bit hard to see (being mostly white on white), but look closely and you'll find them (hint: the one in Los Santos is in Little Mexico). Note that you won't get the call from Jethro right away. I think you have to be actually standing in the abandoned airport ready to buy it (but he will definitely call before you make the purchase). Buying Property, Part 2 [GTASATDLVWALK07] ----------------------- Map Icon - Green House and Plane Prereqs - Verdant Meadows Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.54% (59.36% Total) Unlocks - Learning to Fly (Pilot School) Head north and go buy the airport. It will cost you more than one dollar (in fact, it'll cost you $80,000). This unlocks a new save point and the pilot school. Learning to Fly (Pilot School) [GTASATDLVWALK08] ------------------------------ Map Icon - Plane [The Airstrip Strand] Prereqs - Buying Property, Part 2 Rewards - Respect (5), Increased Flying Skill, Pilot's License Completion Percentage - 0.53% (59.89% Total) Unlocks - N.O.E. Mission and Fender Ketchup Mission, Airports Don't kid yourself, Pilot School is hard, especially if you want to get golds in all 10 tests. You only need bronze to continue the story line (N.O.E. will open up after you finish "Circle the Airstrip", while Fender Ketchup requires at least bronze in all 10 tests). Like driving school, you get vehicle rewards depending on the level of proficiency you acquire. For a minimum of bronzes (or higher) in all missions, you get a Rustler plane for your use. If you get all silver medals or better, you will also get access to a stunt plane. If you can manage to get gold in all 10 tests, you get a Hunter helicopter, which is one badass piece of equipment. Here are a few tips: Takeoff: You need to go through all three coronas in 30 seconds or less for gold. Land Plane: Again you need to do this in 30 seconds or less for gold. Note that you can use the Q and E keys while on the ground to steer. Circle Airstrip: This one is a bit tough. The real trick is to go through each corona so that the next corona is visible in front of you. That reduces your natural tendency to start over compensating (and once you over compensate, it becomes increasingly difficult to get the plane back on track). The most important thing is to be gentle with the controls. Once you panic, it's all over. Finish the course in 60 seconds or less for gold (you'll have to keep the W key down at all times to make this limit). By the way, the game suggests you use the Q and E keys to steer, however, I found the arrow keys much more responsive. Q and E were only useful to me when I was on the ground. Your call, though. Circle Airstrip and Land: If you thought the last one was hard, wait until you get to this one. It's the same exact course, but this time you have to land the plane on the runway, oriented properly and in the correct position to finish. You get an extra 20 seconds to make the landing (so you must get 80 seconds or better to make gold). The best advice I can give is to try to hit the last corona such that you're banked toward the runway. Once you go through that last marker, let off the accelerator, line up (as best you can), drop your landing gear, and hit the S key to slow down. Keep the nose up (with the down arrow key) to prevent damage. To make the time limit, you have to hit the runway a pretty good ways along it. Remember that the planes don't stop on a dime, so give yourself room to brake when you're coming up to the red marker. Helicopter Takeoff: After that last hard mission, this one is much easier. Just follow the onscreen instructions. Finish in 30 seconds for gold. Land Helicopter: Land in 30 seconds for gold. Unlike the planes, a helicopter can take a pretty rough landing without damage, so don't be afraid to come down hard. Destroy Targets: This is the hardest of the bunch. The time limit for gold is insane (80 seconds), and you'll have to practice a lot to get the chopper down in that amount of time. First, go into first person view immediately (the V key). Then move forward quickly. When the trucks come into view, let off the W key and hit the guns and missiles. Really let fly with the missiles, you don't have a limit. When all three are toast, you'll probably have to slam on the W key to gain altitude (or you'll hit the back cliff behind the trucks). At the same time, jab the E key to spin toward where the two cars are. As soon as you get around, move forward. Again, let off a lot of rockets coming toward the cars. When you get a little closer, add in the machine guns (the guns auto aim for you to a pretty good extent, so don't forget about them). Once the two cars are down, spin around again and make a beeline for the runway. You need to both land in the marker and be straight (facing east) to get a 100% position score, but the position limit is pretty generous (if just about any part of the copter is touching the red marker, it will count). Loop the Loop: The rest of these missions are pretty easy, just follow the instructions on screen. You need to do this one in 21 seconds for gold. Barrel Roll: Do this in 18 seconds for gold. Parachute onto Target: You need to do this one in 55 seconds for gold and hit the target right in the center. You'll have to do it a few times to get a feel for when to pull the chute. I found going forward in freefall until you are just past the last building marker (to the right) on the radar was a good place to be, then I continued down in freefall for a bit (long after the game tells you to pull the chute). I spent maybe 15 seconds descending with the chute open, without much leg lifting (this will move you forward faster, but will also slow your descent). If you get right over the target early, spiral in, you can actually turn in a pretty tight spiral and may hit the target fairly well. N.O.E. [GTASATDLVWALK09] ------ Map Icon - Plane [The Airstrip Strand] Prereqs - Learning to Fly Rewards - $15,000 Completion Percentage - 0.54% (60.43% Total) Unlocks - Stowaway N.O.E. is a pretty tough mission. Basically, you have to fly a plane down to Angel Pine, drop off a package, and return to your airport within 9 minutes. That's not the tricky part though; the tricky part is you have to keep under the radar, which means flying low. I had the best luck turning left once in the air (you fly between two canyons) and going over the no fly zone (they'll shoot a rocket at you, but it's not fast enough to catch you). Once you reach water to your south, follow it south and west until you come to the San Fierro airport. Cut across here (watch the round buildings), and when you reach the river between Mount Chiliad and Missionary hill, follow it west to the ocean. Turn south and go past the mountain's western side. I find it easiest to continue south to give yourself plenty of turning room. Approach the corona from the south. It's kind of trick to get at, since there are trees everywhere, but you should be able to weave your way to it (the corona is huge compared to those you are used to seeing from the school tests). Once you drop your package, reverse the course to get back to the airport. When you get near the landing strip, you need to land the plane (don't forget to drop your landing gear). You can land anywhere you like on the strip; you don't need to get into the marker. When making your approach, don't worry about the height issue too much, by the time you are detected and enemy jets appear, you should have long since been safely on the ground. The time limit is almost a non-issue, nine minutes is a ton of time to get this done (especially if you've done well in the school missions and can control a plane with some skill). If you are detected by radar and jets show up, get below the radar limit and stay there. Eventually they give up. Watch your radar, if the jets find you and start shooting missiles, immediately take evasive action. Chances are that once they start shooting at you, you're doomed, but it doesn't hurt to give it a try. Stowaway [GTASATDLVWALK10] -------- Map Icon - Plane [The Airstrip Strand] Prereqs - N.O.E. Rewards - $20,000 Completion Percentage - 0.53% (60.96% Total) Unlocks - Black Project As soon as you get control, gun the bike. Tap the forward key to make CJ lean forward to get the extra speed you need, or you'll never catch the plane. The tricky bit is getting up the ramp while avoiding the barrels. I found it easiest to actually get alongside the plane (on the right side) and then stop tapping so that you gradually fall back. As you reach the ramp, gun it to get inside. Once in the plane, you can't really use your weapons, so change to melee mode and start working your way forward. Some joker up front is sending more barrels your way, so make sure to use the side areas to avoid them. Just beat the crap out of the agents as you are moving forward. When you get to the front, take out the last guy and get his chute. Now drop your charge, equip the chute, and run out the back (don't worry about the charge, it'll go off automatically). Mission accomplished! But wait, you're in the air! Good thing you got that chute. You are way above the landscape, so freefall for a while (unless you just love drifting downward forever). Pull the cord when you're ready, and make your way back to the airstrip. Black Project [GTASATDLVWALK11] ------------- Map Icon - Plane [The Airstrip Strand] Prereqs - Stowaway Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.54% (61.50% Total) Unlocks - Green Goo, Desert Eagle Pistol unlocked at Ammu-Nation You may want to grab some armor for this one (there's a suit in your airstrip. On the map, check the northern line of plane icons, near the third one from the right, the armor is inside the body of a plane). You can only start this mission at night (between 20:00 and 06:00). Truth drops you off without much fanfare. You need to be inside the compound by 05:30. You can do this either by getting to the control tower and opening the blast doors, or (if the alarms go off) by reaching a vent. Take out some guards with your sniper rifle before going in to make your life easier. When you get inside, watch out for those lights. Unfortunately, shooting them will also alert the compound that something is up, so avoid taking them out unless the alarm is already been tripped. If you are spotted by a light, the base goes condition blue for a short while. You need to get into the shadows until things calm down. If you are spotted while in condition blue, the base escalates to condition red, which means they know your there, and stealth is no longer an option. Reach the tower and open the gates, or alternately reach the grate and shoot it out to get inside the base. Once in, the base automatically goes condition red. Take down the guards as you advance into the base. There are plenty of armor icons and even a few health icons if you need them. Your first stop ought to be the control room, where you can shut down the SAM sites (the control room is not marked on your radar, but it's more or less on the same level as the entrance. Once the SAMS are down, find the keycard and open the door. Now proceed down the stairs, taking out guards as you go. Once you hit the bottom, get the pack and fly out of there. Without the SAMS, you should have an easy time of it. Just fly to the marker and it's another mission accomplished. Green Goo [GTASATDLVWALK12] --------- Map Icon - Plane [The Airstrip Strand] Prereqs - Black Projet Rewards - $20,000, New Asset ($10,000 per day) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (62.03% Total) Unlocks - Jet Pack, Required for Saint Mark's Bistro One more mission before we take care of more business. Strap on the pack and fly over to the train station in Prickle Pines. Keep in mind you can still shoot from the air, and there are quite a few guards on the train to deal with. The easiest thing to do is to land on the train, take out any remaining guards in range, and start blasting the green crates. The first two won't have anything in them; the third will contain your prize. You may have to get back in the air to go over some of the obstacles. Once you have the item, blast out of there and back to the airstrip for another mission accomplished. The airstrip now generates a fairly impressive $10,000 per day, not to mention you have a permanent Jet Pack spawn near the door to the save icon. We'll be using that Jet Pack to finish off the horseshoes. Collecting Horseshoes, Part 2 [GTASATDLVWALK13] ----------------------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - Yay Ka-Booom-Boom Rewards - Increased Luck, $100 per shoe ($2,500 in this set), $100,000 bonus Completion Percentage - 0.54% (62.57% Total) Unlocks - SMG, M4, Satchel Charge, Combat Shotgun spawn outside the Four Dragons Casino. Okay, let's finish off the second half of the horseshoes. We'll start by grabbing all of those that we couldn't get before, and then finish up the remaining few. Grab the Jet pack from your airstrip and fly east. As you are coming into the city, you will see a few skyscrapers. Head for the tallest one (it's the Emerald Isle Casino) and get on its highest point, where you will find Horseshoe #8. South of the casino (below you) you will see that building with the red stripe along its roofline (these are the souvenir shops). Land on top of it to get horseshoe #10. Now fly southwest until you reach the airport (the big one, not your airstrip). We have a pilot's license now, so we could just walk right in the front gate (this is true of all airports in San Andreas), but as long as you have the Jet Pack, just fly in. Horseshoes 19, 20 and 21 are all on the tarmac. You'll find #19 on the west side of the northern end of the runway. Number 20 is on the east side of the runway, not far from a stack of cargo crates. Head over to the gate terminal (to the east) to find shoe #21. Now head for Woozie's icon (it looks like the Syndicate icon, only in yellow). You are going toward the Four Dragons Casino. Land on the overhang over the door to find shoe 29 (you will probably get a mini-cut scene telling you to go inside to see Woozie, which you should ignore for the moment). East of the Four Dragons Casino is the Come-a-Lot Casino. Land on the sign in the parking lot to find shoe #30, then go inside the castle walls to find shoe #31 (it's on the northwest tower). To the east of the Come-a-Lot (past the city planning building with the blue windows), there is a block with six buildings in it. Look for the red one with the balconies, you'll find horseshoe #34 in one of the balconies. From this building, look northwest and gaze at the wonder of the pyramid. Then take a wild guess as to where you will find horseshoe #35 (hint: top of the pyramid). Horseshoe 36 is on the east side of the pyramid, on the wall that surrounds the giant building. Just to the northwest from here you will see a parking garage. Head to the north side of it and find horseshoe #37 in the third level. Fly northwest past Caligula's, to your green house icon (it's the Pirates in Men's Pants building). You will find Horseshoe #38 on the northeastern side of the building near the rock-skull thing. Now fly northeast to your next green house icon (this will be over the Clown's Pocket Casino) and land on the roof over the entrance to find Horseshoe #39. These are pretty easy with the Jet Pack, no? All right, look west from where you are to find the Visage Hotel. There's a waterfall display out front, and you will find Horseshoe #40 underneath one of the waterfalls (near the top). Don't worry, the water won't damage your Jet Pack. Horseshoe #41 is directly to your east. Fly over the top of the Starfish Casino and then back down to street level. You want to look in the northeast corner (the shoe is tucked into the corner of the L-shape, behind the 24-7). Now fly east to the Cluckin' Bell. There will be a roof connector running between the Bell and a steak house. You'll find Shoe 42 on this connector. Fly southeast toward the Zip clothing store. Above the entrance is a balcony where you will discover shoe #43. East of the Zip shop, on the edge of the freeway are two billboards. You will find shoe #44 between them. Continue east until you see the train tracks and follow them north. Shortly you will enter a tunnel. Go through the tunnel to find Shoe #45. Come out of the tunnel to the north. Fly to the southwest over a tall building and down the other side (there is a green house icon near you). Check the sign of the building (Casino) to find horseshoe #46. Fly back over the building again and below you (and to your left) you should see the heart shaped sign of the Erotic Wedding Chapel. Land on the roof to locate shoe #47. To your northeast you will see the Rock Hotel. Look in the guitar shaped pool to find shoe 48. Continue to the northeast to the strip mall (where there are a bunch of shops you can enter). Look in the back to find shoe 49. From here, fly northwest to what is apparently a military fuel base (amazingly, you can fly here without getting any wanted stars). Look on the northern side to find your final horseshoe. And that's it for the horseshoes; you've now collected all 50 and unlocked a few weapons at the Four Dragons Casino entrance. Go save at your favorite save point (or do the next section first). Buying Property, Part 3 [GTASATDLVWALK14] ----------------------- Map Icon - Green Houses Prereqs - Learning to Fly Rewards - New Save Points Completion Percentage - 9 x 0.535% (67.38% Total) Unlocks - None It's kind of a pain in the butt to have to run all the way to the airstrip every time we want to save, so let's fix that. There are no less than nine available save points in Las Venturas. Go buy them all. Seriously. Just open up your map and hit each of the nine green houses one at a time. Take the Jet Pack if you like, it makes it easier to get around. You should have the money, presuming you did the export cars mission, and you only need $164,000 to buy the whole lot of them (several are hotel suites, which will only cost you $6k per shot). None are remarkable in any way, so I won't go over them individually, but the one in Prickle Pines is really nice! Photo Ops, the Finale [GTASATDLVWALK15] --------------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - The Green Sabre Rewards - $100 per shot ($300 this set), $100,000 bonus Completion Percentage - 0.53% (67.91% Total) Unlocks - Shotgun, Micro-SMG, Sniper Rifle, and Grenades spawn at San Fierro Garage We'll get back to the plot in a while, but first I want to take a detour and finish off the last of San Fierro. So get back to your airstrip and grab the Jet Pack, then fly down to San Fierro and grab a camera, we'll start by finishing off the last three photos. We'll start off at the mall, just southwest of the airport. Look for the five cylindrical buildings to the west of the mall. Land on the roof of the northern most building and look south through the viewfinder to find Photo #6 atop the next building (note that you have to take off your Jet Pack to take the picture). Now fly north toward the Gant Bridge. You need to land on the ship where you released those prisoners (from The Da Nang Thing mission). The cargo crates will do nicely. Now point the camera at the mast to find Photo #28. Now fly southeast to the Garver Bridge. We couldn't get this one before because Las Venturas was still closed to us, but now we can snap it. Land on the bridge and point the camera at the top of the span nearer to LV to get Photo Op #41, and our last photo. A whole mess of weaponry now spawns at your garage. Better late than never. Go save the game at your garage in Doherty. We're going to go check out the street races next. Street Racing, San Fierro [GTASATDLVWALK16] ------------------------- Map Icon - Checkered Flag Prereqs - Verdant Meadows Rewards - $10,000 per win ($60,000 this set) Completion Percentage - 6 x 0.535% (71.12% Total) Unlocks - None From your garage, drive over to Wang Cars and look around back for the red marker to access the street-racing menu. You have a choice of six races. You have to come in first in each race to get credit for completing it. I'm not going to go through each race individually, because by now you shouldn't have very much trouble with them. On the long races (5 miles or more) concentrate on keeping your car in good shape, because it has a long way to go and you don't want to destroy it. In long distance races, the other drivers are easy to beat, so you should be more worried about finishing the race rather than the competition. In the shorter races, you don't have as much time to wait for the other drivers to make mistakes, so you'll have to be a little more aggressive. Use the P.I.T. maneuver to spin out the competition when the opportunity presents itself. Be careful steering with the go-carts, they're pretty squirrelly. Gambling - OPTIONAL [GTASATDLVWALK17] ------------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - Yay Ka-Boom-Boom Rewards - Depends on amount bet Completion Percentage - 0.00% (71.12% Total) Unlocks - None All right, let's get back to the missions. Return to Las Venturas and head for the Four Dragons Casino (where Woozie's symbol is). Go inside. We'll talk to Woozie in a bit, but first, as long as we're here, let's do a little gambling. Just walk up to any of the machines, or a table with a dealer, and press return to start playing Video Poker - Depending on the machine you use, each coin is worth anywhere from $1 to $10,000. You can put in up to five coins per deal. You win on a pair of Jacks or better. Slots - The slot machines go anywhere from $1 to $50 per pull. Everyone knows how to play slot machines, right? One cherry in the first spot pays the least, two cherries in the first and second slot pays a bit more, everything else requires a match of three. Wheel of Fortune - Place a bet on any of the six spaces. If the number you bet on comes up on the wheel, you win that amount multiplied by how much you bet (for instance, if you put $50 on the $5 slot, you win $250 if the wheel stops on the $5 slot). Naturally, the higher values (like $20) have a lot fewer spots on the wheel than the lower values (like $1). Roulette - The roulette wheel bets range anywhere from $20 to $1,000,000. You can bet on a specific number, or any of the various combinations that are normally available in roulette. The table is pretty self explanatory. Blackjack - Bets start at $10 and go up to $100,000. This is another game that everyone knows how to play, at least if you are old enough to be playing San Andreas in the first place. Get as close as you can to 21 without going over (busting) and then stop. If the dealer gets less than you or busts, you win. Fender Ketchup [GTASATDLVWALK18] -------------- Map Icon - Woozie [The Casino Strand] Prereqs - Learning to Fly Rewards - $5,000, Respect (10) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (71.66% Total) Unlocks - Explosive Situation Mission When you're done with gambling, go see Woozie (the red marker is inside the casino). This mission can either be tough or easy, depending on how you do it. First off, there's a bit of a glitch in the game where the car won't leave the garage. When you see it get stuck, just hit the space bar to advance. Now, stay off the freeway or you'll get a three star wanted level. Instead, drive northwest to the airport, and head through the gate so that you are on the tarmac. Without the distraction of traffic, you can speed around the runway scaring the guy on your hood to your heart's content. Once he's done, drive back to the casino. Mission accomplished. Explosive Situation [GTASATDLVWALK19] ------------------- Map Icon - Woozie [The Casino Strand] Prereqs - Fender Ketchup Rewards - $7,000, Respect (15) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (72.19% Total) Unlocks - You've Had Your Chips Mission, Architectural Espionage Mission, Quarry Challenge Okay, you need a bit of firepower. Drive over to the quarry. You have 2:30 minutes to grab all four sticks of dynamite. The problem is that they are in boxes, so you'll have to use the truck to break them open. You should have plenty of time to grab all four. One of them is being moved around by forklift, so just run it down at take the stick. Naturally, it isn't that easy. Grab the bike and follow the markers. The jumps are fairly easy, but if you miss one, depending on where you land, you may have to start over. Take your time and line things up before committing. Once you're out, drop off the stolen goods at the drop point, and it's another mission accomplished. Vigilante [GTASATDLVWALK20] --------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - None Rewards - 150% Health, $150 per kill Completion Percentage - 0.54% (72.73% Total) Unlocks - None I've waited all this time to do this last vehicle mission because, depending on the vehicle you use, it can be keyboard-breakingly frustrating, or trivially easy. We have access now to at least one vehicle that makes this mission a piece of cake. You essentially have three choices for Vigilante (well, you have more than three, but the others make doing the mission nearly impossible unless you are super elite). 1) Stock up on Micro-SMG ammo and use a police bike 2) Use a Hunter Chopper 3) Use a Rhino Tank The first option is okay, but it's still fairly hard. You don't have much protection, and when the bad guys start shooting at you with M4s, it's not real easy to take them down with your machine gun. The second option is better (in my opinion), but it may not be all that easy to find a Hunter. If you've done all golds in the flight school missions, there is one sitting in your airstrip for you to use. If so, you may want to try using that machine. But I will assume for this guide that you don't have the Hunter to use. So the last option is the tank. This is a good option, as you are nearly invulnerable (as long as you keep moving and don't let the cops bust you), and have great firepower (anything you hit with the tank will explode, not to mention you have that great turret to use). If you want to use the tank, we have to go get you one. Fortunately, I know just the place. Go to your airstrip and save the game. Then grab your Jet Pack. Directly to the south is the restricted area (Area 69) where you stole the Jet Pack in the first place. Fly over the fence and land near the northern most garage, where you'll find the tank. You have a five star wanted level now, so quickly ditch the Jet Pack and hop into the Rhino. Drive south to where you'll find a weak point in the fence that you can break through. Now drive north back to your airstrip, park the tank in your garage (or the big hanger if you like, though the garage is closer to safety), run in and save the game to get rid of your stars. Once the heat is off, get back in the tank (or whatever vehicle you chose to use) and start up the mission (the 2 key). You now have to get through 12 levels, chasing down the criminals and killing them. Undoubtedly, you will pick up wanted levels as you progress. Unless you're on the bike, don't worry about it, they can't hurt you. Once you finish level 12, you get 150% boost in health (your health bar won't get bigger, but your health will drop less when you take damage, so it works out). You can continue on with Vigilante as long as you want, but there's not a lot of point once you have your health bonus. Boating School [GTASATDLVWALK21] -------------- Map Icon - Red S Prereqs - Yay Ka-Boom-Boom Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.53% (73.26% Total) Unlocks - Marquis (at least all Bronzes), Squallo (at least all Silvers), Jetmax (at all Golds) While we're out this way (sort of), let's do another school, this time Boating School. There are four Red S's on the map (two of which you've already done). The boating school is the one in the far northwest corner (in Bayside Marina). Don't panic. Boating School is a piece of cake compared to driving and pilot schools. It will only take you a few minutes to get through all five tests, even if you are going for all golds. Basic Seamanship - Drive a boat straight, yeah real hard. The only hard part is knowing when to take off the gas and hit the brake. Stop in under 10 seconds to get gold. Plot a Course - Go through the buoys. Like the plane school missions, the easiest way to do this is to have the next buoy in your sites as much as possible as you go through the current set. Don't hit the buoys or you'll lose time for damage. Use the spacebar as needed. Finish in under 30 seconds to get gold. Fresh Slalom - Just like the last one, only longer and with a Dinghy. The Dinghy is a bit squirrelly, so don't overcompensate, and avoid taking damage by hitting the buoys. A lot of the turns are pretty sharp, but you can reduce the turning by coming at them from the right angle. Do this course in 80 seconds or less for gold. Flying Fish - This is a distance test, and you need to reach 65 meters to get a gold medal. Come at the ramp as straight as you can (and with enough of a running start to get as much speed as possible). When you hit, push the down arrow key to raise the nose of the boat. Just as you are getting close to the water, switch to the up arrow key to raise the back of the boat. This will get you a bit more distance. Land, Sea, and Air - The final course combines everything you've learned, so there's not much new to tell you. Careful at the end of the bridge not to hit the ground too hard or you'll get a damage penalty (and obviously avoid hitting any of the buoys). You must finish in 135 seconds to get a gold certificate. You've Had Your Chips [GTASATDLVWALK22] --------------------- Map Icon - Woozie [The Casino Strand] Prereqs - Explosive Situation Rewards - $10,000, Respect (20) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (73.80% Total) Unlocks - Don Peyote Mission, Combat Shotgun unlocked at Ammu-Nation This is a fighting mission, so make sure you're armed (the weapons outside the casino should do nicely) and armored (in case you've forgotten, there's an armor suit across the street from the casino at the Come-a-lot, under the parking lot sign). Drive over to the compound. The only entrance is being watched, so don't go in that way. On one side is a parking garage, so head up to the roof. From there you can drop inside the yard. Go around the back of the building (so the goons in the car can't see you). When you get inside the building, you're going to have a fight on your hands. I found the easiest thing to do was to duck back out of the building and go around the corner (where the chainsaw was) and wait. Four or five guards will chase you over there, so pick them off one by one. Now move toward the entrance again and take out as many guards as you can from there. Watch out for the sniper on the left. Keep taking out the enemy until none are left. Pull out your combat shotgun and blow a couple of the machines (with the blue arrows), then switch back to your weapon of choice (I like the M4 personally). More guys will appear at the entrance, so take them out. There will be a couple more outside (including one up on the crates), so finish them off as well. Once the area is clear again, you can finish off the rest of the machines. Run outside and grab the car. Now it's a nice leisurely drive back to the casino, another mission accomplished. Don Peyote [GTASATDLVWALK23] ---------- Map Icon - Woozie [The Casino Strand] Prereqs - You've Had Your Chips Rewards - Respect (5) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (74.33% Total) Unlocks - Intensive Care Mission Go to see Woozie again. But before you can get into the casino, you get a call from the Truth. Great, time to play Taxi Driver and give everyone a ride. Go find the guys on Arco Del Oeste. From there, drive over to the snake farm. There's a bit of a shootout, take everyone down. You probably have a wanted level now, so grab the car and make a run for the casino. Once you get there, it's all over, meet up with Ken Rosenberg. Oyster Collection [GTASATDLVWALK24] ----------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - Yay Ka-Boom-Boom Rewards - Increased Sex Appeal and Lung Capacity, various girlfriend bonuses Completion Percentage - 0.54% (74.87% Total) Unlocks - None Before we continue on with the story missions, let's do a couple of things first. We'll start by getting the remaining oysters. Drive to the Gant Bridge (the one on the far west side). Jump off the northern end into the water. Between the northernmost support and the cliff is a narrow area where you will find oyster #35. There's no real easy way to get back onto land from here, so just look to your east where you will see a lighthouse. Swim toward it, and then past it. As you are swimming east, you want to go slightly north as if you were going toward the boating school (where your boats are parked). At the beginning of the inlet, on the eastern shore, there is a bit of land that points to the northwest. At the tip of this bit of land you will find oyster #36. Continue over to the boat school and grab one of your boats. Follow the coastline to the south and east. Watch for a rock retaining wall that runs along the side of the road. You will find oyster #37 in front of this wall. Get back in the boat and continue along the coastline. When you pass under the rail bridge, go north into the small inlet (there are two minor road bridges that go over it). Go up as far as you can, then get out and swim north under the second bridge, where you will find oyster #38. Continue following the coastline as it turns to the north. Pretty soon you will see a dock to your left (it's near one of your save points). In one of the bays you will find oyster #39. Go north again and pass underneath a couple of bridges. After the rail bridge, there will be a narrow inlet that goes west. You will find oyster #40 at the end of this inlet (under a road bridge). Continue north until you hit the dam. Unfortunately, the next oyster is on the other side. On the good side, there is a Seasparrow helicopter on the right side. Get out of your boat and grab the chopper. Fly over the dam to the other side and look for oyster #41 near the western set of towers. To the west of the dam is a bridge for a dirt road. You will find oyster #42 under this bridge. Continue to fly north until you see another road bridge. To the right is a dock, at the end of which you will find oyster #43. Now fly north over the small bit of land until you reach the ocean, and then follow the coast to the east. Watch for a small dock that is directly to the north of your airstrip, and continue east past it. Once past the dock watch the coastline, and stop when the cliff turns into a beach (the first place you'd be able to get out of the water onto land). You'll find oyster #44 just off this beach. Fly to the far northeast corner of the map (just past that military refueling base where we found the last horseshoe). Anchored out in the water is a boat and you will find oyster #45 on the bow side of the boat. It's pretty deep, but you should be able to get it without losing any health. Fly to the southwest just over the freeway until you see the Rock Hotel, where the guitar shaped pool is (you'll remember we found a horseshoe in here). You will find oyster #46 under the diving board. If you want, ditch the chopper now for a car, as the rest of the oysters are inland and it can sometimes be tough to find a parking spot for the chopper. Grab a car and drive over to the strip, where all the casinos are. Find one of your save points (the one on The Pirates in Men's Pants building) and look to the north of it to find the Visage Casino. This is the one with all the waterfalls out front. You will find oyster #47 underneath where one of the waterfalls hits the pool. Drive south to the next casino (Pirates in Men's Pants). Look for that skull rock sculpture thing again where you found a horseshoe. In front of that sculpture in the water you will find oyster 48. Oyster 49 is directly to your east. Go past Caligula's Palace (where the dice icon is), and you'll see a block with a curvy street in it on your radar (to the east). There is a pool on that curvy street with the oyster in it. It's not even under water, you can see the top part of it spinning above water. For the final oyster, head back to the Four Dragons Casino (just follow the green money icon if you've forgotten where it is). Across the street is the Come-a-Lot casino, and there are a couple of moat things in the northwest corner. Get in the northern one to find oyster #50. When you finish all 50 oysters, you get a bonus to your sex appeal, not to mention $100,000. Also, your girlfriends will always take you back without question, no matter how unsexy you are and new girlfriend requirements (high fat, low fat and so on) are tossed out the window, they will always give you their numbers. Finally, girlfriends will always invite you in for coffee at the end of every date and will be responsive to your kisses (which means you will always get the full 12% bonus from a successful date, 5% for the date, 5% for coffee, 1% for a gift and 1% for a kiss) which makes getting to 100% quite a bit faster. Whew, those oysters were tough to collect, but definitely make the girlfriend aspect of the game a lot easier. Dating Barbara Schternvart - OPTIONAL [GTASATDLVWALK25] ------------------------------------- Map Icon - Red Heart Prereqs - Yay Ka-Boom-Boom Rewards - Ranger Vehicle, Cop Outfit Completion Percentage - 0.00% (74.87% Total) Unlocks - None Let's take advantage of our new found power over women. Drive over to El Quebrados (it's the small town in the desert to the west. Not the town where the boat school is, but one town east of that. There is a save point there). You will find Barbara on the east side of town at the police station. Get her number, and go save. Barbara is available for dating between 16:00 and 06:00 the next morning. For gifts, there are flowers at the gas station that is just behind the police station. If you are bored with flowers, you have an alternative, though it take a little more driving. Head over to Bayside (the town where the boat school is) and look for the construction area (it's pretty much right in the center of town, there are wooden barriers in front of it, and there's not much there, it's basically a dirt-grass lot with a dumpster in it). Behind the dumpster you will find a vibrator which can also be used as a gift. For food dates, take her to the diner that is not far from her house. Easy. For driving, Barbara likes the El Quebrados area, and take her at a moderate speed. The hard one is the dancing date, because there isn't a club anywhere near. San Fierro is probably your best bet, although you also have the choice of Las Venturas. You should finish up with Barbara pretty quickly, and that's five out of six girlfriends complete. Intensive Care [GTASATDLVWALK26] -------------- Map Icon - Dice [The Casino Strand] Prereqs - Don Peyote Rewards - $5,000, Respect (5) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (75.40% Total) Unlocks - Misappropriation Mission, The Meat Business Mission Go see Rosie. After he gives you his life story, drive over to the hospital. Looks like we're a little late. Grab a bike and run down the three ambulances. The first two won't be the ones you are after (put a few shots into them to stop them), so it must be the third. It takes quite a few bullets to get the ambulance to stop. Once it does, jump off the bike and take out the drivers. Now hop in and get the vehicle back to the meat mart. Mob backup will arrive, but they shouldn't pose too much of a threat. Once you reach the red marker, it's another mission accomplished. Misappropriation [GTASATDLVWALK27] ---------------- Map Icon - C [The Casino Strand] Prereqs - Don Peyote Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.54% (75.94% Total) Unlocks - None, but required for High Noon Mission Uh oh, the C icon is back on the map, which means the three stooges are "requesting your assistance". Joy. Let's go see what they want. Drive over to Terra Robada and up the dirt path to the red marker. The place is crawling with Feds. If you have your sniper rifle, this is a good place to take it out and cap some of the guards from a distance. As soon as you do, the target gets in a helicopter and takes off. Fortunately, there's another one, so make a run for it and go after him. The enemy copter doesn't go very fast, so you should have no problem chasing him down. At one point he goes over the Area 69 (the Restricted Area), so don't follow him over that (unless you want to do the rest of the mission with five stars and a jet shooting missiles at you). Instead go around the base to the north and meet up with him on the other side. Continue to follow him to the Emerald Isle building, where he'll land on the roof. Land along side him (or anywhere on the roof really) and follow him on foot down the stairs. He'll grab a car and take off, jumping from the fifth level. Follow him to another parking garage where he'll go underground to ditch the car and then comes back up on foot. This is a good place to get him. There's only one exit, so if you stand there, he has to come back through you, and he'll be on foot. When he appears, shoot him in the head and take his briefcase. Mission accomplished. Unique Jumps - OPTIONAL [GTASATDLVWALK28] ----------------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - Yay Ka-Boom-Boom Rewards - $500 per jump ($10,000 this set) Completion Percentage - 0.00% (75.94% Total) Unlocks - None Let's finish off the rest of the unique jumps. Amazingly, there is not a NRG- 500 anywhere to be found in Las Venturas (until you score all golds in bike school, which we haven't done yet). So we'll have to get one somewhere else. Los Santos isn't really all that far away, and you do remember where the bike is in that city don't you? If not, go to your house in Ganton, head out back to the culvert, follow it to the tunnel, and make a u-turn when you come out onto the street. You should remember where you are by this time. As long as we're down here, we may as well get those two unique jumps we skipped so long ago. Head to the Los Santos Airport and go through the gates (they're on the north side of the airport) so that you're on the tarmac. Drive down to the runway and find the three cement ramps on the eastern side. These are not your ramps. However, on the north side of them are small yellow signs with numbers on them which serve as the ramps for jump #5. I think you can hit these from either direction, though I went west to east. Get a good running start and use the head bob, because you need quite a bit of distance to qualify for the jump. I went 290 feet. Now, if you look at your map, there are six round bays (where planes park to unload passengers). Look east of the set of four to find a stairway cart. This is your ramp for jump #6 (you'll end up on the other side of the fence). I went 193 feet. We're done in Los Santos. The next jump (#53) bites for any number of reasons, and reason one is that it is hella far from where you are at right now. You need to get to the south side of the Gant Bridge, underneath it (where Jizzy used to own his club). The easiest way is probably to go north into Las Venturas, then take a left into Bone County and then into Tierra Robada, but however you do it, get back to Jizzy's club. You remember the construction scaffolding we used to get into the club? Go up it on the bike (not very easy making those hairpin turns, but you can maneuver the bike up them). Only this time keep going up until you are under the bridge. You will see where the planks end and this is where you will launch out over the water. Back up as far as you can and use the head bob. Chances are you are going to hit the bridge tower, but that's okay. I went 176 feet to qualify for this one. Another reason this jump sucks is that you lose your bike. Swim back to shore and grab a car. Drive south to where the NRG-500 is (the one that starts the challenge, near the export/import crane) to grab a new bike. Jump #54 is almost as big a pain in the rear as the last one. Drive to your airstrip (however you want to get there) and park your NRG-500 either in the garage or in the hanger. Then grab the PCJ-600 that spawns outside of the garage. Get on the road north of your airstrip and drive west (past Las Payasadas) until you see the teepees on your left, and a very short road on your right that goes off to the southwest. At the end of this road is a house, and you'll see a metal ramp in front of it. This is your jump, and you should drive a bit up the road to the east to get some running room. You may have to do it a couple of times to get a feel for where the ramp is (as you have to turn onto it and can't really see it until the last minute). You will end up losing your bike in the water (which is why we grabbed the PCJ-600 instead of our very valuable NRG-500 for this one). I don't know how far I went (because you won't get an insane jump bonus for landing in the water), but it looked like about 150 feet or so. Grab a car and return to your airstrip. You have a bit of a choice now. In the next jump you will go over a lot of water, so there is the possibility of losing your bike. However, to be successful, you actually need to land on the opposite shore. Jump #55 can easily be done with a PCJ-600, though, so I recommend you take that rather than risk losing the NRG-500 at this point. In either case, head back to where you did jump 54. Just before you get there, you will find a road going south, take that. After a bit, you should see a dirt path to your right, follow that until you reach a ghost town, then look for another dirt path to your right that goes up the mountain. Follow this up (past the place where you picked up Truth's friends). The jump should be fairly obvious, there's a metal track that goes from a shack to the end of the cliff. You will use this track to jump the water and make it to the other side. I went 473 feet. Get back on the road to your north and drive east into Las Payasadas (home of the world's biggest cock). You should see the aforementioned cock pretty easily, and jump #56. Look for a green ramp to its west. I went 223 feet. For the next jump, get next to the big cock on its west side and look south, where you'll see a rest stop. On its left side you will see some stairs that will serve as your ramp for jump #57. Get some distance and let fly. I went 363 feet and ran into the opposite canyon wall. Get back to your airstrip (it's just to the east now) and grab your NRG-500 if you haven't already. Jump #58 is right on your strip. Go to the last plane on the northern row all the way to the west. You will see a wing sitting up against the fuselage of a plane. This is your ramp. Don't over jump it, you only need to go about 120 feet to make it count. We're done out in the desert, head into town and go to Prickle Pine, and hit your save point. From there, drive north and then east until the road ends in an apartment complex. Follow the parking lot all the way to the end where you will find your ramp for jump #59. I flew 315 feet on this one. Jumps 60 to 63 are all out of the Emerald Isle Casino parking garage. I won't give distances for this one, because I don't think you can fail them as long as you hit the jumps straight. You will find Jump #60 on Level 6 facing east. The same sort of jump is found on Level 10 facing south (Jump #61). For Jumps 62 and 63, go up to level 10, then drive the bike up the stairs. When you get to the roof, check out the building to the east. You will notice two ramps on them (one on the north side and one on the south side of the building), which are on a rooftop that is slightly lower than the one you are on. Start your jump for these on the higher rooftop and make the slight drop before hitting the ramps. Note that your bike is probably taking damage from all these jumps, so hit the Pay-n-Spray to fix it up (unless you want to drive all the way back down to Los Santos to get a new one). From the Emerald Isle, drive south to the street with the Gym on it, and go east. Where the road ends, look in front of you and you should see a police bribe in the air. The ramp is just behind it. Drive past and turn around. You have to break through the fence to get at the ramp for this jump (#64). Don't gun it too hard, you have to land safely. I qualified at 160 feet. For jump #65, go to your save point in Creek (it's the farthest one to the east). Look north and you'll see the wooden ramp facing west next to a palm tree. I went 280 feet. Get back on the road that runs past the Gym going west, following it all the way until it ends, then turn north. Just before this north-south road ends, pull into the container storage place on your right. You will drive north past a bunch of truck bays, and you'll find the wooden ramp for jump #66 to the right of the stack of containers. My jump was 223 feet. Open up your map and take a look at the airport (not yours, the other one). There is a part of the runway that runs north to south. You should be at the north end of the runway, but not inside the airport, just outside the fence. Face north and gun it down the street. At the end of it you'll enter an apartment complex and the wooden ramp for jump #67 is right in front of you. My bike went 203 feet, but I hit the building on the other side or it would have been farther. Drive south and find the Camel's Toe Casino (you have a save point there). There is a big lion statue out front, and the casino itself is a big pyramid. There are stairs on all four corners of the pyramid leading down to a moat like area surrounding the entire structure. Get on the east side of the pyramid and drive north. Land on the building to the north of the pyramid to make jump #68 count. My distance was 213 feet. For jump #69, we will launch at almost the same point, except using the stairway facing east rather than north. I went 206 feet for this one. For your final jump, drive south. Open your map and look for the checkered flag icon (the southern most one, it is in the LVA Freight Depot district). To the south of that you will find the Randolph Industrial Estate. Look along it's western side for an entrance, then drive all the way to the back (east side). Your ramp for jump #70 is to the north, next to a garbage dumpster. I went 180 feet (don't gun it too hard, it's possible to over-jump this one). And that's it! Not only have you completed all 70 unique jumps in the game, in fact you've completed all the collections across the entire landscape. Congratulations! Go save the game. Beat the Cock, Part 1 - OPTIONAL [GTASATDLVWALK29] -------------------------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - Yay Ka-Boom-Boom Rewards - $10,000 Completion Percentage - 0.00% (75.94% Total) Unlocks - None When you are on foot, hit the tab key. At the bottom of the display it will tell you the day of the week. If it is anywhere near the weekend, head down to the Los Santos lighthouse, where you will find a red marker on the beach. Any time on Saturday or Sunday you can take part in a triathlon race worth a cool 10K. You need to be in good shape for this race (low fat, in other words) or you don't stand much of a chance. You also need a high Stamina, but we've already maxed that out. (If it is not near the weekend, you can continue on, just remember to come back to this one when you get near the weekend). There's not much to say about this one, it'll take you roughly eight minutes to do the entire course. You start by swimming, followed by a bike race, and finally a foot race. By the end of the race, you will finish up at the top of Missionary Hill in San Fierro, quite a ways from where you started! You'll probably fall behind in the swimming part, for some reason the other guys can swim a lot faster than you can. When you get to the bikes sprint as much as you can without losing control. You may make up some time, but probably not much. Your goal here should be to keep the other competitors in sight. The foot race is where you will pull into the lead if you are not already there. You should find you can outrun the entire lot of racers, and if you were anywhere near them at the end of the bike race, it should be no problem to beat them up the hill. Good luck. The Meat Business [GTASATDLVWALK30] ----------------- Map Icon - Dice [The Casino Strand] Prereqs - Intensive Care Rewards - $8,000, Respect (25) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (76.47% Total) Unlocks - Fish In a Barrel Mission, Madd Dogg Mission Head into Caligula's again, and talk to Rosie. Man, this dude needs to lay off the caffeine, or whatever it is he's taking. Anyway, grab a vehicle and take him over to see Johnny. For some reason Johnny doesn't seem pleased to see you. Things get kind of ugly now, so start taking out the bad guys. There's a health icon in the first area if you need it. When Rosie runs into the freezer, you can follow him in and you'll find an armor icon in the back. But don't go in until you've cleared the room first, or you may find yourself locked in with Rosie. If the goons manage to lock Rosie in the freezer, open it back up (don't stand too close to the controls or they don't work) before he freezes to death. Now it's just a matter of carefully working your way out. When you get outside, take Rosie back to Caligula's, and it's another mission accomplished. Fish In a Barrel [GTASATDLVWALK31] ---------------- Map Icon - Woozie [The Casino Strand] Prereqs - The Meat Business Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.54% (77.01% Total) Unlocks - Freefall Mission Not a mission really, just a cut scene. Congratulations on your new business arrangement. Madd Dogg [GTASATDLVWALK32] --------- Map Icon - D [The Casino Strand] Prereqs - The Meat Business Rewards - Respect (10) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (77.54% Total) Unlocks - None, but required for Saint Mark's Bistro Mission Head over to the D icon. Things aren't looking real good. Grab the indicated truck and stay under the guy until he finally decides to jump (easier said than done to be sure, it may take a bit of practice or luck until you figure out where to position the truck). Once you've caught him in the back, drive him carefully over to the hospital. Mission accomplished. Street Racing, Las Venturas [GTASATDLVWALK33] --------------------------- Map Icon - Checkered Flag Prereqs - Learning To Fly (Pilot School), Driving School Rewards - $10,000 per race ($40,000 this set) Completion Percentage - 4 x 0.535% (79.68% Total) Unlocks - None There are two checkered flags in Las Venturas. One is at the airport (for a good reason), but let's do the other one right now. There are only four races in this set, two on bikes and two in cars. One again, in the long races (the car races) concentrate on keeping your car in good shape. One of the courses is essentially an oval, so you can go flat out (just watch the traffic). Nothing here is particularly hard. Air Racing, Las Venturas [GTASATDLVWALK34] ------------------------ Map Icon - Checkered Flag Prereqs - Learning To Fly (Pilot School), Driving School Rewards - $10,000 per race ($60,000 this set) Completion Percentage - 6 x 0.535% (82.89% Total) Unlocks - None Go to the other checkered flag (in the airport) and get ready for some flying fun. There are no other competitors here; you are strictly racing against the clock. In fact, you are not really even doing that much, the time is just a bragging rights sort of thing. The only requirement to finish each race (and I use the term race loosely) is that you go through all the checkpoints. You could spend an hour doing each one, and you'd still pass. That being said, going through all the checkpoints is easier said than done. Barnstorming - The stunt plain is very difficult to control, keep a very light touch. Once you start over correcting, it's difficult to get the plane back on course. If things are getting too far out of control, you may want to ignore the next corona in favor of settling down the plane, and come back when you can grab it without crashing. Military Service - Hold down the numpad 8 key to go into jet mode, and hold down the numpad 2 key to return to helicopter mode. I'd recommend staying in helicopter mode at least until you get out of the canyons, and then switch to jet mode. Heli Hell - This is the same idea as the other two helicopter challenges, but the coronas are mostly in pretty tight spots. Fortunately, you are in a Hunter, which can take a fair amount of damage. Freefall [GTASATDLVWALK35] -------- Map Icon - Dice [The Casino Strand] Prereqs - Fish In a Barrel Rewards - $15,000, Respect (30) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (83.42% Total) Unlocks - None, but required for High Noon Mission Return to Caligula's. There seems to have been a slight change in management. Whatever. Head for the airport and grab the plane (note the body armor in the back of the hanger). Fly north to meet the incoming jet. Once you see it, bank around and get behind it. There is a corona that you have to catch in order to get to the next part. CJ makes a jump for it (that's one way to transfer fights!) and makes it to the jet. Now, hold the left or right arrow key to duck behind the bulkhead. Take out the four goons, and then the pilot. No problem, right? Now it's just a matter of bringing the plane down in the Las Venturas airport. The jet handles pretty well, so hopefully by this point you won't have any problems landing the bird. Don't forget to put down the landing gear. You don't have to stop in the marker, anywhere in the airport will do. High Noon [GTASATDLVWALK36] --------- Map Icon - C [The Casino Strand] Prereqs - Freefall and Misappropriation Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.54% (83.96% Total) Unlocks - None, but required for Saint Mark's Bistro Meet the three stooges out in the ghost town. Oops, looks like that's about it for one of them, and things aren't looking all that great for you either. Fortunately, a distraction is provided, and you get your chance to pull things out. You won't be able to take out Pulaski before he gets into the car, but do make sure you get both his tires that are facing you before he takes off. This will make your life a lot easier. Now make a run for the Bandito and chase him down. If you've gotten his tires, he's not going anywhere very fast (although to give him credit, he still has a fairly decent level of control of the car given its condition). Now it's just a matter of drive-by shooting until the vehicle catches fire and he bails. Now just run him down or get out and start shooting until one of you goes out (preferably him). Quarry Challenges [GTASATDLVWALK37] ----------------- Map Icon - Bulldozer Prereqs - Explosive Situation Rewards - $29,000 Completion Percentage - 0.53% (84.49% Total) Unlocks - $2,000 per day asset Head for the Bulldozer icon on the map (it's in Bone County, just west of the city). This is a series of seven challenges. Mission 1: Just push the rocks over the edge, nothing tricky here. Mission 2: Don't go too fast with the barrels, or you'll end up running over them. Mission 3: Time to take revenge. Catch up with the other Dumper. You can try to ram it, but it's a lot faster to just do a drive-by. It really doesn't even take very many shots to bring down the behemoth. Mission 4: Grab the Sanchez next to the trailer and head out of the quarry to the north. Take the road west until you reach the Dumper. Now bring it back and carefully work your way down into the quarry. Back up to the fire and hit the numpad 2 key to drop the bodies into the flames. Mission 5: The deadline for this mission seems totally unreasonable, but actually, you can make the trip in about 1:30 if you take the correct route. Come out of the quarry and follow the road north. Take the first right and cross the train tracks. Then turn left to go south for a short way, and take your first right. This will bring you on the road going north that cuts just south of your airstrip. Watch for the dirt path on your right that leads to the eastern end of the property. Once there, just drive down the strip and dump the bombs at the end (use the numpad 8 key again). Mission 6: Take more or less the same route as you took in the previous mission. You can drop onto the tracks before reaching the crossing in order to catch the first barrel to the south. Just clear them off the tracks south to north, shouldn't be much of a problem. Try to get a few at a time in front of you before actually clearing them off the edge, or you'll run out of time. Like before, however, you can't move too fast or they'll go underneath the dozer. Mission 7: This one is hard. You have a lot to do in the eight minute time limit. Grab the Sanchez and just jump off the cliff to get to the bottom of the quarry as fast as possible. Get in the dozer and move the bike and body to the designated spot. Once there, get the dozer out of the way and jump back on the Sanchez again to get back up to the crane. Get in the crane and move the two items into the truck (use the S and W keys to move the crane forward and back, while the shift and space key will move the winch up and down). Try to get the two items as far forward in the truck bed as you can, because you don't want them to fall out. Get in the truck. The body and bike won't move unless you hit a wall, so don't. Carefully make your way up to the entrance of the quarry. Now you have to cross a freeway, so do this very carefully (if a car hits you, you may lose your load). Back up to the water (anywhere, it doesn't have to be at the mark), and dump both items in. And that's all seven missions, the quarry will now generate money for you as an asset. Stop by every once in a while if you're in the neighborhood to collect your cash. Freight Train Challenge [GTASATDLVWALK38] ----------------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - Yay Ka-Boom-Boom Rewards - $50,000+ Completion Percentage - 0.54% (85.03% Total) Unlocks - None Head to any train station on the map (I use the one in Prickle Pines, but it really makes no difference) and wait for a train to pull in. When you see one, pull the conductor out (just like you do when you jack cars) to steal the train. Hit the 2 key to start up the challenge. There are only 2 levels to this challenge, and for each level you must deliver five sets of cargo in a row to pass. You have a time limit to get to each station. There really isn't much to it, you just go around the tracks and stop at the stations. It's sort of like you're on a rail! The train is safe to push to about 45 miles per hour, but you probably want to let off the gas going around the sharp bends (especially the hairpin turn in Red County). As you approach the stations, slow down early. I found a good rule of thumb is to let off the gas at about 1000 feet (if you are doing the full speed), and start to break around 500 feet. Keep your speed about 1/10th of the distance you need to go (so if you have 200 feet to go, you should be doing around 20 miles per hour). If you overshoot, stop and back up. You have to come to a complete stop to finish the drop off, but you can immediately take off again (don't wait for the message to start, get going right away to build up speed again). When you complete level 1, hop out of the train and back on, then hit the 2 key to start up level 2. Once you finish level 2, you are done with the train mission. You get a cool $50K plus the incidental money you made for each drop off. Beat the Cock, Part 2 - OPTIONAL [GTASATDLVWALK39] -------------------------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - Yay Ka-Boom-Boom Rewards - $20,000 Completion Percentage - 0.00% (85.03% Total) Unlocks - None Once again, check the day. If you are near the weekend, head down south to Red County and Palimino Creek (you have a save point there if you want to advance time). There is a small beach on the lake to the southwest of the town. Head down there and step into the red marker (only appears on Saturday or Sunday) to start up the race. Like before, the competition (8 of them this time) are faster swimmers than you are, so they are going to get ahead of you. You'll spend about four minutes in the water, so once you get out, you'll probably have quite a bit of time to make up. The bike race is long, you'll travel across the entire San Andreas landscape on the bike. Make sure to sprint, as you need to gain on your competition here. You'll finally ditch the bikes in Las Venturas for the foot race. Hopefully you've made it into a position where you can overtake the competition. The footrace part isn't all that long (compared to the bike race), but you are a much faster runner than the other racers. If you had the leader in your sites at the end of the bike race, you should have no problem overtaking him to win the race. Conveniently, this race puts us in Las Venturas, right where we need to be to continue the story missions. Saint Mark's Bistro [GTASATDLVWALK40] ------------------- Map Icon - Dice [The Casino Strand] Prereqs - Green Goo, Madd Dogg, Freefall, High Noon Rewards - $20,000, Respect (30) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (85.56% Total) Unlocks - A Home in the Hills Mission, required for Breaking The Bank At Caligula's, Didier Sachs Clothing Well, this is pretty cool; we're going back to Liberty City. Before you start up this mission, you may want to grab some armor and a bit of weaponry, the fighting is going to be pretty intense. First, CJ conspires to get his friends out of Salvatore's clutches. Then it's off to the airport and on to Liberty City. Once you get there, the fighting starts right away. It's just you, your favorite weapon, and about 10 bad guys (including Foreli, who will take quite a few shots to bring down). Once the place is cleared out, you return to the jet. Come at the airport from the north or south to give yourself a good approach angle and land the plane, mission accomplished. At this point, your phone is going to just about ring itself off the hook as you get several phone calls. Nothing terribly important, just everyone checking in. Architectural Espionage [GTASATDLVWALK41] ----------------------- Map Icon - Green Money [The Heist Strand] Prereqs - Explosive Situation Rewards - Respect (10) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (86.10% Total) Unlocks - Key to Her Heart Okay, we've had those explosives sitting around for a while now, it's time to put them to use. Er, wait, seems like we forgot a minor detail, like having the plans to the casino. Grab some body armor, you'll need it. Head over to the planning department. Put away all weapons (including the camera) before going in. Talk to the lady behind the desk, then head up the stairs. At the top, you notice a guard standing right in the way, so go back down a floor and create a diversion. Once everyone is gone, go back up and take a shot of the casino plans. Now you can pull out your weapon, you're going to have to fight your way out. Once you get outside, make a beeline for the Four Dragons back entrance to complete the mission. Kick Start [GTASATDLVWALK42] ---------- Map Icon - Trophy (in Las Venturas) Prereqs - 50% Bike Skill Rewards - Dune Vehicle spawns outside stadium (except on Mondays and Wednesdays) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (86.63% Total) Unlocks - None This challenge is available at the stadium every day of the week except on Mondays and Wednesdays. You do not need to get every single corona, you only need to score 26 points to win the challenge, so go after the ones you are comfortable with. It's not really very hard to get 26 points in this competition, especially with your maxxed out bike skill. Dirt Track [GTASATDLVWALK43] ---------- Map Icon - Trophy (in Las Venturas) Prereqs - 50% Bike Skill Rewards - BJ Injection Vehicle spawns outside stadium (On Mondays and Wednesdays), $25,000 Completion Percentage - 0.54% (87.17% Total) Unlocks - None The other two days a week will have this competition available. You are on a Sanchez racing against 11 other bikes. The Sanchez is a lot more durable than the car you used in 8-Track, so you can hit the walls a bit more, but even so, try to keep off of them as they'll slow you down. There is one hill in particular that is problematic, and you'll get to know it pretty quickly. When you come to this hill, drop your hand from the mouse to the arrow keys to adjust the landing angle of your bike (otherwise you'll likely end up landing on your back wheel and crashing). The other racers wipe out here a lot, so if you can stay on your wheels here, it gives you a big advantage. Key to Her Heart [GTASATDLVWALK44] ---------------- Map Icon - Green Money [The Heist Strand] Prereqs - Architectural Espionage Rewards - Respect (10) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (87.70% Total) Unlocks - Millie as a Girlfriend, Dam and Blast Mission Follow the Croupier in the usual manner, don't get too close but don't get too far away either. When she goes into the sex shop, follow her in and check it out. Once she leaves, you will find a Gimp Suit in the back. Grab it and continue to follow the girl. Once she makes it back to her place, wait around for a bit. Pretty soon you'll see a guy heading for her house with a dildo. Shoot him dead (and take his gift while you're at it). Go up and ring the doorbell to complete the mission. Millie is now one of your girlfriends. Dating Millie - SEMI-OPTIONAL [GTASATDLVWALK45] ----------------------------- Map Icon - Heart Prereqs - Key to Her Heart Rewards - Keycard Completion Percentage - 0.00% (87.70% Total) Unlocks - None, but keycard required fro Breaking the Bank At Caligula's The reason I call this semi-optional is that you have to date Millie long enough to get her keycard, which she will give you at around 35% relationship bar. Everything after that is optional. In fact, if you really hate the dating thing, you don't even have to do that much, just shoot her in the head and you'll get her card anyway. But if you want to go the dating route, Millie is available from 12:00 to 22:00. You can do the usual kind of dates (she likes the fancy restaurants for food, with the fork and knife icons), or you can skip that route and do something a little different. If you go to her house wearing the gimp suit, you immediately enter for coffee, which will give you a 10% push in the relationship bar each time. Do that a few times and you are at 100%, just that easily. And with that, you are finished with the girlfriend aspect of the game. Congratulations! Since you got all 50 oysters, your relationship bars no longer drop over time, so if this is the sort of thing that bugs you (not having 100% on all six of them), go patch up the relationship bars by taking them on dates. It won't get you anything other than knowing you are at 100%, so don't bother if you are okay with them the way they are. Dam and Blast [GTASATDLVWALK46] ------------- Map Icon - Green Money [The Heist Strand] Prereqs - Key to Her Heart Rewards - Respect (5) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (88.24% Total) Unlocks - Cop Wheels Mission You're job, should you chose to accept it, is to rig the dam with explosives so you can knock out the city's power supply during your heist. Get in the plane and head for the corona. When you get to it, hit Return to jump. Land on (or near) the red marker. Now it's just a stealth mission. Take out guards with your knife (or silenced pistol if you have one). Once inside, clear the place out, plant the charges and get out of there. Nothing to it. Cop Wheels [GTASATDLVWALK47] ---------- Map Icon - Green Money [The Heist Strand] Prereqs - Dam and Blast Rewards - Respect (20) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (88.77% Total) Unlocks - Up Up and Away Mission You have twelve minutes to steal four bikes. What makes this tricky is that you are going to pick up wanted levels. Some of the bikes are vacant, with the officer standing nearby, and you can just steal them without any trouble, but others still have a cop attached. In these cases I used the AK-47 or M4 to kill the cop and take the bike. Needless to say, the police were less than happy about this. You should try to get the bikes in order of the location of the truck, which probably means doing them in this order: 1) Linden Station 2) Julius Throughway East 3) Las Venturas Airport 4) Roca Escalante This gives you the shortest distance you need to take the bikes to get them back to the truck (which is moving in a clockwise direction). Just drive up the back of the packer and when you get the thumbs up signal, get off and jump onto the freeway. Grab a new car and head for the next bike. When you have all four, it's another mission accomplished. Bike School [GTASATDLVWALK48] ----------- Map Icon - Red S Prereqs - Yay Ka-Boom-Boom Rewards - Increased Bike Skill Completion Percentage - 0.54% (89.31% Total) Unlocks - Freeway (at least all Bronzes), FCR-900 (at least all Silvers), NRG- 500 (all Golds) This is a six-mission challenge. Nothing here is very difficult, even if you are going for all gold medals. Here are some tips for some of the trickier ones. The Wheelie - The trick here is to not over do it. You have to be on your back wheel before reaching the 'zone' (the area between the two rows of cones). Lean back just enough to keep the front tire up and gun it through the area. Once you are past, hit the space bar a bit to bring the front tire down and glide into the stop area. Jump and Stop - This is just a jump, no big deal. Use the arrow keys to adjust your landing angle or you may come down too hard on your back tire and fall off. The Stoppie - This one takes a bit of practice. Once you are up on your front tire, you have no acceleration capability, so you need to have enough speed built up to get through the entire zone. When you get near the cones, lean forward and tap the S key quickly to bring your back tire up. Let off the lean key or you'll flip forward. Use it when you feel like the bike is going to drop back down. Jump and Stoppie - This is arguably the hardest of the bunch, but it is easier when you realize that the bike does not really need to stay on its front tire the entire way into the stop zone. If you drop down to your back tire, the game will stop you at that point, so the real trick is to land pretty close to where you want to end. Prior to the ramp, use the head bob technique to gain extra speed. When you come off the ramp, lean forward (up arrow key) so that you hit on your front tire, then slam on both brakes. With practice (and a little luck) you will learn the proper angle and in a few tries should get a perfect score. Learning New Moves [GTASATDLVWALK49] ------------------ Map Icon - Dumbbells Prereqs - 20% muscle Rewards - New Fighting moves Completion Percentage - 0.53% (89.84% Total) Unlocks - None Go to the gym in Las Venturas and step into the red marker. It's the regular sort of deal, all you have to do is beat the tar out of the trainer. Once you put him down, he will teach you the usual assortment of useless fighting moves. Up Up and Away [GTASATDLVWALK50] -------------- Map Icon - Green Money [The Heist Strand] Prereqs - Cop Wheels Rewards - Respect (25) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (90.37% Total) Unlocks - None, but required for Breaking the Bank at Caligula's Get some heavy duty weaponry and armor for this one. Grab a bike or car and head for the fuel depot to the northeast. You can't get through the gates with what you're driving, but every so often a Patriot will come out, so you can sneak through the gates at that point. As soon as you get through, the alarm is going to go off. Start taking down guards. When you've cleared the outside, you should look for an open door to the left of the gate entrance. There are a bunch more guards inside. The good news is that once you've cleared them out, you will find a health and armor icon. Continue through the warehouse to the back. More guards will greet you here. When things are clear again, head up the stairs. At the top, make a run for the gun emplacement and take down the two gunships. These guys are getting serious! Once they're done, continue to the chopper. The Sky Crane is pretty heavy and will tend to lose altitude pretty quickly, so be careful around the tall buildings. Head for the indicated marker to go pick up the truck (use the numpad 2 and 8 keys to lower and raise the magnet). Nab the truck and head for your airstrip. You are even heavier now, and you'll be going right over the strip, so watch your altitude carefully. Once you reach the airstrip, drop the truck in the indicated marker (left mouse button), and then land the chopper. Mission accomplished. Courier Mission - Burger Shot [GTASATDLVWALK51] ----------------------------- Map Icon - Burger Prereqs - Yay Ka-Boom-Boom Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.54% (90.91% Total) Unlocks - Asset worth up to $2,000 per day Head over to the Burger Shot in Redsands East (it's just south of the Gym). You will notice a Faggio (a scooter) sitting on side of the building. Get on to start up the courier mission. What can I say about this that I haven't already said twice before? Use the big map to plan your route, and you shouldn't have any problems passing all four levels. The Faggio doesn't exactly go fast, but even so, you have quite a bit of time for each level. The Ammu-Nation Challenge - AK-47 [GTASATDLVWALK52] --------------------------------- Map Icon - Gun Prereqs - Yay Ka-Boom-Boom Rewards - Increased Skill with AK-47 Completion Percentage - 0.53% (91.44% Total) Unlocks - None There is an Ammu-Nation on the Old Venturas Strip. Go inside and walk into the large red marker (not the small one, that's for buying guns). This is the final round of the Ammu-Nation challenge. Unfortunately, just like before, in order to reach the AK-47, you have to go through the Pistol, Shotgun, and machine pistol challenges again. These shouldn't be too much of a problem (with the possible exception of round 3 of the shotgun competition). Once you complete the three rounds with the AK-47, you're done. Breaking The Bank At Caligula's [GTASATDLVWALK53] ------------------------------- Map Icon - Green Money [The Heist Strand] Prereqs - Up Up and Away Rewards - $100,000, Respect (100) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (91.98% Total) Unlocks - None This is it! Head for Caligula's, and make sure to put away all of your weapons as you go through the casino. Swipe the card you got from Millie and head downstairs. On the next level down, pull out your gas grenades and throw one into the open grate (it's on the left). Soon, things will go dark. Pull out your night vision goggles and turn them on (left mouse button). Head for the next marker to find another door with a keycard access. Now go grab the forklift and open up the back door. Time to pull out a decent weapon and start clearing the way for the rest of the team. When you get to the safe, grab the satchel charges and go back upstairs to destroy the generators (use a couple to get both of them). Get a little distance and blow the charges, then head back down to the safe. There's an armor in the back of the safe if you need it. Time to get back out, and you'll need to clear the way again. Escort the team back to the van. You're on your own now. Head back up, taking out the enemy as you go, until you finally reach the rooftop. Follow it over to the parachute. When you jump, you need to immediately pull the chute open and bring your legs up, or you'll miss the next rooftop (if you do miss it, it's not a big deal, drop to street level and grab a car instead). Assuming you got to the helicopter, grab it and take off for your airstrip. Turns out Zero was a bit lose-lipped. You should raise his rent or something. Anyway, you've completed yet another mission. Sweet. And that's it, folks. We are done with Las Venturas! Don't go rushing off to Los Santos just yet, the next mission actually starts in The Four Dragon's Casino, but we'll be heading for Los Santos very soon now. J6.

Return to Los Santos (Ending) | [GTASARLSTOP] 0==================================0 \XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/ K1. City Overview [GTASARLSOV] ================= You don't really need a tour do you? It's the same place you started from. The only thing that has changed since you left is that the Ballas and Vagos have taken over. Not so good. K2. 100% Completion List [GTASARLS100] ======================== We're coming up on the end of the game. Beyond the story missions, there's really not a whole lot left to do, since we're going back to territory that we've already been to (Los Santos). Here's what we have to do in this section for a 100% completion score Story Missions: From "A Home in the Hills" (The Mansion Strand) to "End of the Line" (The Riots Strand). Obtain ten available save points. Complete Los Santos Race Tournaments (6). K3. Other Activities [GTASARLSOTHER] ==================== There's only one, Gang Warfare. You need to do some of this before one of the story missions becomes available, but you can continue on if you like to get 100% of all territories. K4. Dramatis Personae [GTASARLSDP] ===================== (in order of appearance) Carl Johnson (CJ) - You guessed it, still you. Kendl - Your sister. Woozie - Your partner. Madd Dogg - A famous rapper that you recently saved. Kent Paul - Band Manager. Maccer - Band Lead Vocalist. Mike Toereno - Another guy pulling your strings. Sweet Johnson - Your brother. OG Loc - Apparently he's back out of jail. Cesar Vialpando - Your sister's boyfriend. Big Smoke - an ex-homie. Officer Tennpenny - The last member of the three stooges. K5. Walkthrough [GTASARLSWALKTOP] =============== A Home in the Hills [GTASARLSWALK01] ------------------- Map Icon - Woozie [The Mansion Strand] Prereqs - Saint Mark's Bistro Rewards - Respect (40), New Save point (but see warning!) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (92.51% Total) Unlocks - Vertical Bird Mission Definitely make sure you are fully armed and armored before going into this mission. Once you're all set, head into Woozies office in the Four Dragons Casino. Prepare for a long cut scene before you regain control. When you jump out of the plane, immediately pull open your chute. You'll need to pull up your legs to make it to the rooftop, but don't dally, your boys need your help (if you miss the roof, you can get back onto it with the use of a car, but your team is probably dead before you'll make it up there). Once there, keep the enemy off the roof until reinforcements arrive. Grab the armor when you need it. Before long, the troops arrive, so lead them into the mansion. You are in for a fight here. Enemy will keep arriving as you make your way deeper into the mansion. There are a couple of armor and health icons (in one of the rooms off the corridor you are in, and in the kitchen). Once you get far enough in, Big Poppa makes a run for it. Don't go after him too quickly, he won't get away. Make your way through the mansion until you make it to the front door. Now it's just a matter of running down the car and blowing it up. A drive-by or two ought to do it. You now have a save point at Madd Dogg's mansion. As convenient as it might be, I highly recommend you don't ever save there. This save point is bugged. At the very least you will permanently lose your ability to play basketball. At the worst, it will corrupt your save game. There is a save point just up the street, use that instead. By the way, those health and armor icons are permanent; you can come back for them at any time. The health icon is the only one available to you in the entire game that is not associated with any mission. Vertical Bird [GTASARLSWALK02] ------------- Map Icon - CJ [The Mansion Strand] Prereqs - A Home in the Hills Rewards - $50,000, Hydra Military Jet Completion Percentage - 0.54% (93.05% Total) Unlocks - Home Coming Mission Once again be armed and armored for this mission, as there will probably be fighting involved, and it doesn't hurt to be prepared. Get on the boat and head for the ship. When you get reasonably close (but not too close), jump off the ship and swim for the entrance. Hop out of the water on the left side so the guards don't see you. It's pretty dark in the ship, so if you have them, the thermal goggles come in handy here. Pull out your silenced pistol. The idea is to sneak to the SAM site, but if your spotted, don't be afraid to shoot. Take a few out as a preventative measure if the opportunity presents itself. Once the SAMs are down, turn around and head for the Hydras. Get in on of them, preferably one that isn't underneath anything (you'll be going straight up). Once you're in, hit the W key to get some altitude. Turn toward your goal. You'll have to raise up a bit to get over the bridges. Don't forget to raise your landing gear. When you're high enough, hold the 8 key for a bit to switch to jet mode. You are going to have company (boring conversation anyway), so get ready for it. You're in a dogfight with three other jets. Circle around behind them and hold the space key to get a lock. When you have a red targeting circle, quickly take your hands off the arrow keys and hit the right mouse button to fire. Continue until you down all three jets. Now head for your targets. When you get there, switch back to helicopter mode (hold the 2 key for a bit). Get down so you're in range. It's now the same deal as with the jets, when you get a red circle, fire at will. Take down all the boats. Now, what to do with your stolen jet? Toreno doesn't seem to want it. Fortunately, your airstrip is close by, so go land on the strip. Try to get nearer the eastern end than the western end. It's easier to land in helicopter mode than in jet mode, but it's your call. Once you're down, you have to maneuver the jet into the hanger. Not really easy, as this thing doesn't handle very well on the ground, but switching to jet mode makes it a bit easier. Just be gentle and very careful getting it in there. Once you are in the marker, hold the S key to keep it on the ground, and it's another mission accomplished. Not only that, you now have a Hydra Jet as a permanent fixture in your airstrip. Not bad! Race Tournaments - Los Santos [GTASARLSWALK03] ----------------------------- Map Icon - Checkered Flag Prereqs - Driving School, Learning to Fly Rewards - $1,060,000 Completion Percentage - 6 x 0.535% (96.26% Total) Unlocks - None We need to get back to Los Santos. You're at the airport, so take your new jet, or a Jet Pack, or a helicopter, or really whichever piece of hardware you prefer and head over to the Los Santos Airport. From there, drive north to the checkered flag, let's finish off the race tournaments. You'll notice that some of the races listed you've already won during the normal course of the missions. However, there are six more races to win. You will get $10,000 per race, and at the end of all six, you will get a cool one million dollars for winning every race in the game. Nice! All the same advice applies here as for the other sets of races. One of the hardest races in the game is here, Little Loop. At less than a mile long, you don't have time to wait for the other racers to make a lot of mistakes. You pretty much have to drive this one perfectly to win it. Even one small mistake will put you too far back to catch up in time to take the flag. Also in this set is the Vinewood race, which has some pretty tricky hills and turns to deal with. You'll probably have to run it a couple of times to learn the course before you win it. With another million, you are probably around 3 mill in spare change now. Who says crime doesn't pay? Home Coming [GTASARLSWALK04] ----------- Map Icon - CJ [The Mansion Strand] Prereqs - Vertical Bird Rewards - Respect (40) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (96.79% Total) Unlocks - Cut Throat Business Mission, Beat Down on B-Dup Mission Go pick up your brother. He is not happy about what you've been up to while he's been away. Take him home. Now the fun begins; pull out a decent weapon and start blasting away at the Ballas. You should have a much easier time of it than you did in the previous gang wars, as you have better weapons, more armor and health, and mad skills. After this mission ends, you are effectively locked out of your house on Grove Street, because the red corona appears right in front of the door. Swell. You can go in, but you'll trigger the mission (which is certainly your prerogative to do if you like, but I'm going to wait to finish off this strand first). Cut Throat Business [GTASARLSWALK05] ------------------- Map Icon - CJ [The Mansion Strand] Prereqs - Home Coming Rewards - Respect (40) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (97.33% Total) Unlocks - None, but required for Riot Mission Hmm, this could get awkward, since Madd Dogg isn't really aware of CJ's involvement in the disappearance of a certain rhyme book. But in any event, take the Dogg down to the video shoot. OG takes off, so follow him in the hovercraft. Don't bother with trying to drive-by him, it's hard enough staying with him. After a while, he ends up at the end of a pier, where he switches to a go-cart. Okay, another squirrelly vehicle to drive. OG will make some tricky turns to try to shake you, just stay with him. After a while, it's mission accomplished. Beat Down on B-Dup [GTASARLSWALK06] ------------------ Map Icon - S [The Grove Street Strand] Prereqs - Home Coming Rewards - Respect (40) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (97.86% Total) Unlocks - Grove 4 Life Mission Head to Glen Park and provoke another gang war. Take out the three waves, just like normal. Now it's a fight to get into the heavily guarded house. Take out the guards, and that's all she wrote, another mission accomplished. Grove 4 Life [GTASARLSWALK07] ------------ Map Icon - S [The Grove Street Strand] Prereqs - Beat Down on B-Dup Rewards - $10,000, Respect (40) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (98.40% Total) Unlocks - Riot Mission Same deal as before, only this time you need to take two areas instead of one. Sweet is pretty much worse than useless as he runs in front of your automatic weapon fire (not the sharpest tool in the shed, that Sweet). Be sure to grab armor and health icons, as you have to take two territories in Idlewood before the mission ends. Taking Back the Streets - SEMI OPTIONAL [GTASARLSWALK08] --------------------------------------- Map Icon - None Prereqs - Home Coming Rewards - None Completion Percentage - 0.00% (98.40% Total) Unlocks - None Gang warfare is back! If you took over Los Santos in the first part of the game, you should be pretty familiar with the process. Go to a territory you want to take, and kill at least three enemy gang members. This will provoke a gang war consisting of three waves. Take out all three waves, and the territory is yours. The reason this is semi-optional is that you must have greater than one third of the territories in the game to continue past a certain point in the story missions. It is best to do this now, because an event is going to happen soon that will make it much more difficult to take territory. So even if you don't want to completely take over Los Santos, spend some time now and take over at least one third of it (you can see the territory percentages on the stats page under Gangs). If you are going to take over the whole city, all the same advice applies as from before. Remember there are two very small territories you need to grab before taking the ones around them, or it becomes difficult to find enough gang members to start the war (these are the Jefferson Motel parking lot and the north side of the culvert in Los Flores). If you only take a part of the city, you'll have to deal with the occasional territory attack. But other than that, we are done with everything in the game other than that last few story missions! Riot [GTASARLSWALK09] ---- Map Icon - CJ [Riots Strand] Prereqs - Grove 4 Life Rewards - Respect (40) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (98.93% Total) Unlocks - Los Desperados Mission This barely qualifies as a mission. Just drive Sweet to his place on Grove Street. You may have to avoid the occasional car explosion or rioting pedestrians, but it's hardly going to be a challenge to your mad driving skills. Los Desperados [GTASARLSWALK10] -------------- Map Icon - S [Riots Strand] Prereqs - Riot Rewards - Respect (60) Completion Percentage - 0.54% (99.47% Total) Unlocks - End of the Line (with at least 35% territory) Bring body armor and a good weapon (the M4 or SMG is a good choice, as usual). First you have to grab a couple of homies. This can be a little tricky, as they tend to get distracted easily by gun battles. Even once you get them in the car, sometimes they will jump out for no apparent reason. Panic, maybe. There's not much in the way of strategy here, except to keep your head down and take out the Vagos as quickly as possible. Advance slowly as you clear the area. Inside one of the garages is a health icon, if you need it. Once you take out the last set (with the guy on the roof), that's another mission down. Only one left. End of the Line [GTASARLSWALK11] --------------- Map Icon - S [Riots Strand] Prereqs - Los Desperados, at least 35% territories owned Rewards - Respect (40) Completion Percentage - 0.53% (100.00% Total) Unlocks - See Text This is it! This is a long mission with lots of gunplay, so make sure you are armored up and heavily armed before you start it up. Sweet will give you a call letting you know he's on the case. As soon as you get at least 35% of all the territories, he'll call you back (if you already have that level, he'll call back right away). It's time to finish up some unfinished business. Drive over to the marker. When you get out of the car, grab the cycle and get the SWAT tank. Now smash through the door and run down all the Ballas. Once you're at the back, exit the vehicle and go through the doorway. Take down a few Ballas and Vagos. At the point where you get some armor, there is a door. Be prepared for a pretty major fight in the next room, you have a whole mess of gang members to take down, and to top it off, a tank comes smashing through the wall and you have to take down all the SWAT team as well. Beyond this room are a few more enemy gang. At the end (up the stairs) you'll find a health icon and a combat shotgun. You are now starting floor 2. There's another armor at the top of the next flight of stairs. Through a couple of doors, and you'll have another fight on your hands. Clear the room, then head up the stairs. The door on your left is locked, you'll have to move along the catwalk. As you make your way around, more enemy appear below, and finally in front of you just before you reach the next door. Take them out. In the next room is another health icon. Through the doors you begin the third floor. Once again the Ballas politely provide you with another body armor at the top of the stairs. Through the doors and you'll come into the lounge area. You're in for some pretty heavy fighting here as you come across Ballas, Vagos, and Mafia guys. Take them all out. When you come to a corridor, check the room on the left (with the stripper) for some armor and on the right for a health icon. Continue up to the next floor, where you'll find Big Smoke. After a cut scene, it's time for a shootout. Take out the guards and then Smoke. One less drug dealing ex-homie in the world. Another cut scene, and now you've got a time limit. Turn on your night vision goggles and start making your way back downstairs. There will be resistance again (though perhaps not quite as much as there was coming up). Fortunately, the armor has regenerated again, so grab them on your way back down. Ignore the fires, since you're fireproof there's no need to waste time putting them out. Once you get out of the building, we're in for a chase. Don't hit or otherwise damage the truck, just follow it. Do you best to stay out of the Molotov Cocktails (you don't want the car to be destroyed). After a while, a cop will jump on the truck and start making problems for sweet. Pull up and get under him before he loses his grip. Once he's in the car and takes over the driving, you become the gunner. Take out the various cops, gang member and such that come after you and keep your car in good shape. After a while, the truck crashes. There's a lengthy cut scene, and that's it, game over! Well, sort of. You now have 100% completion, which means you get extra armor and health, you can never run out of ammo, there's a Rhino parked under the overpass, and a Hydra parked on top of Sweet's house. Enjoy your ability to create massive havoc with few consequences. K6.

Vehicles [GTASASARMVEH] ============ My intention was to list all ~150 vehicles in the game and their effect on Sex Appeal (they don't have any effect on Respect). However, after scouring the text files in the game directory and even hunting on the Internet, I quite simply cannot find these values. Unfortunately, the game itself only gives you a bar for sex appeal, not a hard number, so I can't even accurately measure the values myself (I could give an estimated value based on how far the bar moves, but that seems less than useful to me). So I will leave this section here for a future update, and if anyone knows where these values can be found and feels like passing this info my way, I will add them in. /XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\ 0====================================0 | N. Ammu-Nation Weapon Availability | [GTASAAMMU] 0====================================0 \XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/ Not every weapon is available at Ammu-Nation from the start of the game. For that matter, you can't even get into Ammu-Nation during the first part of the game. Here is a list of the weapons available at Ammu-Nation and when they can be purchased. Note that you must complete the mission shown to have the items become available for purchase. The exception to this is the weapons that become available during the Doberman mission (Ammu-Nation opens up during this mission, so you must start, but don't have to complete Doberman to have these weapons available to you). Note that the prices are typical, but do vary a bit from store to store, so they may not exactly match up with what you see. +--------------------------------------+----------------------+---------+ | Mission | Item | Cost | +--------------------------------------+----------------------+---------+ | | | | | Doberman [The Sweet Strand] | 9mm Pistol | $200 | | House Party [The OG Loc Strand] | Silenced 9mm Pistol | $600 | | Black Project [The Airstrip Strand] | Desert Eagle Pistol | $1,200 | | | | | | | | | | Doberman [The Sweet Strand] | Tech-9 | $300 | | Doberman [The Sweet Strand] | Micro-SMG | $500 | | | | | | | | | | Doberman [The Sweet Strand] | Shotgun | $600 | | Wrong Side of the Tracks | Sawnoff Shotgun | $800 | | [The Big Smoke Strand] | | | | You've Had Your Chips | Combat Shotgun | $1,000 | | [The Casino Strand] | | | | | | | | | | | | Doberman [The Sweet Strand] | Grenades | $300 | | Against All Odds | Remote Explosives | $2,000 | | [The Badlands Strand] | | | | Doberman [The Sweet Strand] | Body Armor | $200 | | | | | | | | | | Robbing Uncle Sam [The Ryder Strand] | SMG | $2,000 | | | | | | | | | | Body Harvest [The Truth Strand] | Rifle | $1,000 | | Pier 69 [The Syndicate Strand] | Sniper Rifle | $5,000 | | | | | | | | | | Mountain Cloud Boys | AK-47 | $3,500 | | [The Woozie Strand] | | | | Yay Ka-Boom-Boom | M4 | $4,500 | | [The Syndicate Strand] | | | | | | | +--------------------------------------+----------------------+---------+ All that being said, these missions are the latest you will unlock each of these particular items. It is possible in fact, to unlock some of them a bit earlier, depending on the order you do certain missions in. The weapons in Ammu-Nation are always unlocked in this exact order: 0) 9mm Pistol \ 0) Tech-9 \ 0) Micro-SMG \ 0) Shotgun > Initial stock, always unlocked 0) Grenades / 0) Body Armor / 1) SMG 2) Sawnoff Shotgun 3) Silenced 9mm Pistol 4) Remote Explosives 5) Rifle 6) Sniper Rifle 7) AK-47 8) M4 9) Desert Eagle 10) Combat shotgun If you do a mission that unlocks a weapon that is later on this list than another weapon you have not unlocked, both weapons will unlock, even if you haven't yet done the mission that unlocks the earlier one. Where you are most likely to encounter this is with the Remote Explosives and the Rifle. You have four choices for robbery missions with Catalina. If you select "Against All Odds" to do first, it will unlock the explosives. However, if you select any of the other three, the explosives will not yet be available at Ammu-Nation. The next mission will generally be "Body Harvest" with Truth. This unlocks the Rifle, which is after the Remote Explosives. If you haven't unlocked the explosives already by doing "Against All Odds", doing "Body Harvest" will unlock them automatically, since it unlocks the Rifle, which is after the explosives on the list. It's a rather complex system to explain, but the bottom line is that the weapons you unlock will usually be the unlocked by the missions as listed, or at least very near there (but never after). [Special thanks go out to Mike Healan and Craig Kostelecky for their invaluable help compiling this list and figuring out this system]. /XXXXXXXXXXXXX\ 0===============0 | O. Conclusion | [GTASACONC] 0===============0 \XXXXXXXXXXXXX/ Well, that's the end of the game, and not coincidentally, also the end of this walkthrough. I hope you have found it useful and informative (but without giving too much away). I knew when I started this would be a lot of work (which I really didn't have time for), but it was something that just hit me that I felt I had to do. I am, overall, fairly pleased with the results (though to be sure there are a few areas I'm not happy with, but I suppose anyone who creates a large project will be unhappy with some part of it). Now that I've gotten it out of my system, I can move on with other projects :) Once again, if you have a correction or suggestion for improving the guide, please contact me and let me know. While the bulk of the work is over, I will update this guide as needed, and I will always be grateful for any suggestions on improving this document. /XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\ 0=====================0 | P. Acknowledgements | [GTASAACK] 0=====================0 \XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/ I would like to thank Alex Bates (Dark52) for graciously allowing me to use his maps as a player reference for this guide. Thanks have to go out to Mike Healan and Craig Kostelecky for the work on the Ammu-Nation stock unlocks. We threw lists back and forth at each other for a few days trying to figure this out, and between the three of us, I think we got it right. /XXXXXXXXXXXXX\ 0===============0 | Q.
