Do it after you access the 2nd set of Asuka missions but before doing the Yardies' phone missions and then the only people on that island that hate you at the time are busy with the Yakuza.

Yeah, so I finished the paramedic missions(In Staunton Island) yesterday before starting on Asuka's 2nd set of missions and I found it to be quite easy, I just went for the people farthest from the hospital and worked my way up back. I went over the grassy hill or the driveway depending on where I was coming from and found those two to work the best. Also, I went fast but I was VERY cautious around traffic and turning, It helped a lot if I used R1 + square to slow down coming towards traffic and before I took turns. If you go to the farthest peds and work your way back you should have no problem at all. I had about 8 minutes left over when I was on level 12. One last thing, If you have plenty of time left on your last run to the hospital, take your time if you want to because the left-over time doesn't carry onto the next level.

I still cant get it!
I havent even started Luigi's missions yet (On my 100% save)!
Its getting annoying as I really want to get on to rampages and then Portland missions.

On my other save, I am nearly done with Asuka's second set of missions. And I dont want that 100% completed anyway.

I once got up to the last patient on Level 12 but ran out of time!
*Me when that happened*

'**** you, you ****ing piece of ****! I'll kill the lot of you you ****ing ****s!'

Lol.

In my experiance, nearly everyone would have about 8 minutes on level 12 when doing these on Staunton. As far as I can tell, in GTA3, every level resets the timer. (It's not cumulative.)

I will have ago in about half an hour.
I am praying I get it done. Literally.

So is it quite easy on Staunton, on Asuka's second set of missions?
I dont know if I should wait awhile for them or keep at it on Portland.

Ooh, that reminds me. I haven't done the Paramedic missions (Add on Vigilante and Taxi) yet and I completed the storyline. I have a problem.

Look after that ambulance a bit better. If there's black smoke coming out then you're damaging it too much. Always do a handbrake turn around corners. You can do them faster without danger of rolling over. It's better to wait a second or two for a gap in traffic than to just smash through everything. Especially when you've got some passengers already loaded. If you bash it around too much when there are passengers then they can die and you'll fail the mission

I always stop a short way from the wounded ped and then hold the handbrake on until they're in the ambulance. That way there's no danger of running them over. If you're moving at all, even very slowly, and they run into you then they'll often fall over and lay down for a few seconds - sometimes they'll even die.

I think the number one reason that the paramedic missions in GTA 3 are hard is because you're not given a map to plan your course before every mission. Also the handling of the ambulance is hard to get used to.

That's what I don't like about GTA 3, it has no display map. It's bad enough we can't fly, we can't change the clothes (apart from when we change from the orange jumpsuit at the beginning), enter hardly any buildings, we only have three safe houses, Ammu-nation hardly has anything for sale, there's no motorbikes, we can't go far by boar because of those stupid pipes in the way, we have to do the taxi, ambulance and firefighter missions three times and the weather is always raining or foggy.

I got up to about level 13 in the ambulance mission but I had to get out quit because the bloody ambulance caught fire due to me getting hit by other driver and me hitting them and other things. I like using the alleyway from the Red Light District to Noodles but the cardboard boxes throw the ambulance against the wall at time. I wonder how a heavy vehicle can be thrown by cardboard boxes like how lamp posts can toss Rhino the tank sideways or cause it to stop when the tank should be able to smash anything in it's way and flatten it. We know how tanks can roll over a car in real life but lamp posts seem to have more of a fight. Other GTA games I've also had a motorbike throwing Rhino on it's back where it's upsidedown. It's like knocking Mike Tyson out with a feather and we know he's built like a tank. Daft as a brush what Rockstar added.

I got to level 30 with the firefighter mission but I messed things up, I pressed the wrong key. "Ouch!" I press Enter by accident and got out of the fire engine and cancelled it by accident. I never saw any rewards advertised before hand. When I did the taxi mission I did 100 fares and I never noticed any rewards or changes.

Are you playing GTA 3 as the PC version. If you are, go to: http://www.estetikso...nsole/index.htm and you can download some software to lock the countdown timer. OnePiece kindly helped me with that. The console software is great. If it wasn't for him/her I'd still be struggling with the taxi mission. I have to do the ambulance and firefighter missions agains because I screwed them up.

I expect many of us done that, or a person on the last run at level 12. I certainly have. That's one time when you're definitely allowed to swear biggrin.gif

I've done that. Sometimes I've got busted at the end and lost all my weapons. I hate it when I spend ages stocking up on weapons with lots of ammo and lose it all.

I always go back to my last saved mission if I'm busted or killed.

That is a swine if you're on one of the higher levels of the paramedic mission and a cop runs out in front of you so that you run him over and get 2 wanted stars.
Do you have time to go to the nearest police bribe or will you try to tough it out and put up with them chasing you? You daren't stop very long to pick up a patient if you have wanted stars because any nearby cop will be able to bust you.

Congratulations!
