|BMX||Unlocked:Complete the first mission, Big Smoke.|
Where at:BMX park, Glen park, Los Santos
Reward:A step towards 100%

|Chiliad Challenge||Unlocked:When you access the badlands|
Where at:Top of mount chiliad. enter the bike at top between 07:00 and 18:00.
Reward:a step towards 100%.
Details: three challanges. the first two are easy with practise, the third is harder. on the third, you must go across a twisty, thin bridge. go slowly and keep on it and when you get off it, speed past the compitition down the rest of the mountain.
O.Gs hint: Theres a way to do every one easily. Before you pass the last checkpoint, if youre losing or have lost, get off youre bike and snipe the compitition down at the finish line. Normally you would get disqualified for shooting, but for some reason if you snipe them you dont. Snipe all and you will go up to 1st place.
|Courier||Unlocked: When you can get to the location.|
Location: at Los Santos step on the BMX outside Roboi's food market. at San Fiero step on the freeway outside the Hippy Shopper. At Las Venturas step on the Faggio outside the Burger Shot.
Reward: Money gained, property generates $2000.
Details: There is four stages on each courier. Complete one stage to proceed to the next. To drop the packeges off you must press R2 or L2 and then O(like a drive by) to throw it. Make sure the package goes through the red ring. For completing one courier, $2000 will generate outside the property.
O.Gs hint: If a package does not go through the ring, pick it up again before throwing another through it. Each extra package at the end of each stage is worth an extra $100.
|Exports and Imports||Unlocked: Complete the mission 'Customs Fast Track'|
Where at: The Easter Basin Docks in San Fiero.
Details: There is three lists of cars that you need to deliver, each list with ten cars. You can do these missions in your own time. If you enter a car that is on the current list, a message in the top-left corner of the screen will inform you on this. you can get the cars onto the ship by either using the nearby crane, or by driving the vehicle up the ramp. The first choice is usually the best, as to not damage the vehicle. You can make alot of money on this, so deliver the cars in mint condition. Any cars you deliver will also be available to Import. On each list, extra vehicles are rewarded and become available for Import after delivering five vehicles on each list, and another one for completing a whole list. However, you can only Import a certain vehicle on a certain day of the week. The list of vehicles that need exporting can be found near the ship. This is also where you go to Import a vehicle. One more thing, a reward of $215,000 is given to you for completing one list.
O.Gs hint Some vehicles are hard to get and require work to get them. On the first list, the patriot can be found in a Naval base in San Fiero. No problem, you say? Apart from the fact a five-star wanted level is given for entering. So drive in, turn left and head down. Get out your car and kill all the cops that run at you (there will be alot of them, make sure you've got an AK-47.) get in the patriot, drive all the way to the pay 'n' spray near the transfender, and then to the Dock. your patriot should withstand the abuse from th FBI ranchers. Another people find hard is the Euros on the third list. As soon as you get the third list, A Euros will spawn parked near The Camels Toe in Las Venturas. This is the only place I know of that you can find it, peds don't drive it.
|Frieght Train||Unlocked: Complete the mission 'Yay Ka-Boom Boom'|
Where at: Steal a train when it stops at a station.
Reward: Free transportation and $50,000
Details: Press R3 while controlling a train to start the mission. There are only two stages. For completing the first stage, you get free transportation. For completing the second stage, you earn $50,000. the train has two controls; Forward and reverse. Note that it takes a long time to reach a good speed and takes a long time to brake. The reverse button is your brake, not the handbrake. I'd say the first mission isn't so bad, but the second will require you to know exactly when to press and hold brake. use the distance, time left and the speed. (displayed on the right side of the screen) Your goal is to stop in the red marker at each station. Only the front carraige can stop in the marker for it to count. If you go past it, back up a bit.
O.Gs hint: when taking sharp turns, slow down a bit so you dont go off the tracks, and NEVER go over 50.

Once all the easy to reach coronas are got, you will just need to get the ones floating above the dock. Pick a corona you're going to go for, build up speed, and go up the side of the dry dock and you will of(hopefully) got the corona. repeat this method for the others. I believe theres a video showing how to do this, but im not sure if it was this website.
O.Gs hint A shadow of the high coronas can be seen on the walls of the dry dock. Use this, aswell as the right-anolouge stick(camera) to line up well for the jump. And remember, with practise this challenge is pretty easy, just like everything else in GTA games.

Mission5: You have to drive the dumper to verdant meadows to drop off some explosives. The deadline time is 3:00. Drive swift, but cautiosally, to the airstrip, if you hit something, or lose a barrel, its mission failed. And nobody wants that. When you get there, use the right anolouge stick to dump the barrels into the red marker. A reward of $5000.

Blood Bowl: Your in a massive bowl with loads of other competitors. You drive while you're passanger shoots the other cars.

If your car gets badly damaged, drive through one of the wrenches to fix it.
Dirt Track This is only available to do on Mondays and Wednesdays. Its six laps against other competitors and the course is quite hard to navigate. Don't fret if you're in last place, because theres plenty of time to catch up and it might be that you take the lead on the last lap.

Doing these missions in the army helicopter( called the hunter) is callled 'Brown Thunder', but they're the same. You might get some unwanted attention from the cops during this, so look at the java map for locations for police bribes. If you leave your vehicle, you have 60 seconds to enter another police vehicle. Complete all 12 levels to win.
O.Gs hint: a well known easy way, start the mission, go to an interior, enter it and wait. After about 30 seconds you will see 'threat eliminated' appear on screen. If it doesn't, then go back out, enter the cop vehicle and get out and go back in. This works on the ps2 version, and not as good on the pc version.
