Very nice find!

If the Official Weapons Topic wasn't dead, I'd ask your permission to use these screenshots for the Binoculars. But alas, it be dead. :'(

Ah well, I still have my fanfic! And with over ten fans, I dont think it will die soon! That, and my gold star<3

Is anyone gonna make a map of all the red balloons?

I'd also like to see a savegame with all the sidemissions done and balloons found. I'm so lazy, tounge.gif I'd just like to have all the weapons spawn already.

I cant play the game due to the Devhook issue so I cant test this, but this is from Gamespot forums:

On the map section, you can hold X and select things to see, for example red balloons and unique jumps.
So no more searching for hours for which one you've missed as it displays the ones you have definately got.
Hoorah for Rockstar!

Found a couple balloons (see pics for locations):

Balloon #2 (looking off Balloon #1's rooftop)

BTW, is there a way to aim guns other than the sniper/rocket launcher? Or do I have to wait for the sniper rifle to shoot down the balloons (which seems silly)?

-edit- think that worked d00d, thanks. Think I had to tap the UP button though (instead of down). 97 Balloons to go. smile.gif


-edit #2- New balloon:

if the controls are similar to LCS, when you hold R to aim a weapon, tap the DOWN button and it should go into free aiming mode, while you hold r down.

havent got it yet but hopefully someone else can confirm - my copy arrives friday :@ damn release dates. uk arent really european!
