| Those Mavericks you speak of will be something for me to check out when I start vidding aquistion methods with the others whom join System Error in providing aquistion vids.† I will be starting a new game exclusively for this purpose soon.† If you have any ideas feel free to contact myself or SE here on the GTAForums.|
If you want a BP/EP/FP/DP Maverick you can aquire the one in Misappropriation as many as you can collect and the good news is that if you want a color change then the unmarked Pay n Spray in Las Venturas can take that vehicle in and paint it any color you choose although it may take awhile to get the color you want.†
I like to change the color of my† BP/EP/FP/DP-Mavericks† every so often myself, so I understand.
† It might be possible to get that vehicle from Intrediction yet I and many others have tried and failed.† If it is BP/EP/FP/DP after aquistion it will fit in the Doherty garage if you want to store it there.
There doesnít appear to be anything special about the black Mavericks in Interdiction, aside from their unique color.
I have discovered a trick that gets the Mavericks in that mission to land, take a minigun with you instead of the rocket launcher (the mission implies that you must take the rocket launcher, but you donít have to). Shoot a Maverick with the minigun, but not enough to destroy it. Several times they have landed immediately after that and Iíve been able to walk right up to them. The Hi-Jack feature appears to be disabled because C.J. doesnít even react when I attempt to do it.
The agents inside (and also standing outside on the railing) of the Mavericks just look at you, but will not shoot you, very weird.
Also, I have taken a Dozer with me to try and push the Maverick back after destroying it and failing the mission, but it became too time consuming. Also, destroying helicopters is an instant 2-Star wanted level, so there were always a few cops shooting at me afterwards.
I just gave up after a while. Maybe Iíll try again sometime.
Yes, I know about the BP/DP/EP/FP Mavericks in Misappropriation
I have a slightly modified way of obtaining them thatís based on the ĎPied Piperí no cheats method. It basically involves using a Towtruck instead of the other Maverick to lead the Target away.
Here are the details:
Arrive at the location in a Towtruck, and park it on the road below, the same road next to the cliff that you would lead them south to head across the bridge.
Kill all the agents except the Target, run down the cliff, then get into the Towtruck and lead him across the bridge.
Itís important to kill the agents because the Towtruck isnít bulletproof, whereas the Maverick from the original method was.
The Target may shoot out your tires, but thereís a Pay-n-Spray very close by to get it fixed. Because of that, itís usually a good idea to stay far enough ahead so that he canít shoot out your tires.
The Target will continue to follow you no matter what; and sometimes if you get too far away heíll just stop and wait until you get close to him again.
Cross the bridge and lead him to a dirt road that comes up on your left.
Once he gets to the dirt road, turn onto that dirt road. Youíll have just enough time to take the dirt road back to the Maverick, and usually fail the mission just after you arrive to it.
Then use the Towtruck to tow it back to the Abandoned Airfield or wherever else you may want to take it.
And yes, the Pay-n-Spray works great for changing the color; I always use a Towruck to take it there. The Towtruck makes it so much easier to back the Maverick in, and then pull it back out. My favorite color scheme is Silver on White.
