i did a few headon tries. thought i was fighting a chick gang.
anyway, i didn't figure that one out on my own, but the one b4 (1st printer mission where you have to go to the ship) i came up with landing a sparrow on top and walking down, then flying out...so it evened out creatively you see.

It's a quick and easy way to beat the mission.

|For "Hit the Courier" I always take my helicopter and land on the roof of the warehouse across the street from the docks. Then, while waiting on the courier to arrive, I take out as many of the gaurds as possible with my sniper rifle. After the courier arrives, as soon as the cars start pulling out, I fire a volley of rockets at the cars and take 'em all out. Get the plates, lose the cops, done!|
Me too except that last part. If you get too violent, you'll vaporize the plates. I usually either snipe her out of the car, or pop her tires, bang her around until I can pull her out. Here's a pic of the rooftop DCR and I use

remember with the blocking thing to get full health armor (plus there is spare armor on doorstep of (bank?) across from that first ship just past the gate (on the outgoing side of divided road). there's also health icon just under the gangway of that ship. (there's a machine gun in that parking lot across from the ship too.) Go 'case' the job first, plan out your approach and escape. if you use demarest's pics above you can see both acesses i blocked (not sure if they would use the other if i blocked just the one.
don't go in to the 'lot' (you blocked) till your van and their cars blow. then i'd use the mini to clear folks/remaining cars (if any) out (switch to like uzi something you can run with, but still shoot, i used the python i think...not too accurate with the uzi type guns i find) run around your blown up van, grab plates, and run out. anyway, when you run in your 'purpose' is to grab the plates and run, not to duke it out with those chicks (they are not for you). (just hit the boobie bar (pole position afterwards) to celebrate, they're nicer.

1. Get fast, built up car. A Gang Burrito is good enough for this
2. Start the mission
3. From the Counterfeiting Ship, go about a few metres past the Obvious Entrance to the lot
and get out.
4. If you are not to far away but close enough, the chicks will be running at the fence, not firing.
5. Blast them with anything (prefered is the mini, molotov, grenade, or rocket launcher)
6. Get back in car either when they come out or when all chicks are dead.
7. Chase them and do drive bys until car has black smoke.
8. They will get out and shoot at you drive about 100 metres up road.
9A. Get out and sniper them if car isnt in good shape.
9B. Run them over.
10. Take plates and then get in a car and drive up the road to a spray and pay on the highway like road.
11. Take back to Printing works.
Is this all good?

Get something fast (if you're good at maneuvering and staying on the bike, the PCJ is perfect), position yourself outside the gate to the boathouse, wait for the heli to land, snipe a guard or two, hop on the bike, wait for the courier to make a run for it in the car then get behind it and shoot it (PCJ advantage) until it starts to burn, then when they hop out of the car gun them all down and take the plates.

| I went to the Police station, and got the police uniform. Than I went back to the other island and stole the apache from the Army base. After that, I landed at Printworks and started the mission. Than I just flew around the city blowing up all the people that I needed to. |

Lol, i did it the same exact way..

I tried the helicopter strategy from a guide, but I couldn't find the right roof, so screw that...
I also tried to blast the courier's car when she came out but the plates were lost in the explosion...
I managed to do it by waiting outside the docks, then when the cars came out, I used the minigun to get rid of the cars with the guarding chicks and then I tried to shoot the courier's car with an M16 but missed, so I chased her and did drive-bys until she luckily got stuck in some corner (have those AI players ever heard of reverse???) and I shot her dead through the glass, plenty of time to aim when the car is not moving...
But I wonder how you guys can get the hunter from the base without completing this mission... the Hunter only appears after Keep Your Friends Close, right?

...as seen here. Later in that thread, it was pointed out to me that you COULD get the first Hunter other than by air. So I posted this picto-walkthrough:

I just replayed this mission again using the PCJ method I described above, and it was a piece of cake.
