This mission is doing my head in. I've been retrying for like 10 times now.
Its the mission where you and Phil Bell have to steal some cocaine from Russians, using a truck but once you get there you run off on the boat.
Ok the main problem for me is that stupid f*cker Bell wont use cover, he just runs straight into the warehouse and gets riddled with bullets. Only once I made it past the warehouse and into the boats but then he got killed with those guys chasing him. Anyway, anyone got any tips on how to get through the warehouse quickly so that Phil wont have time to run in thinking hes all that?
Thanks

At first I encountered the same problem. I solved my problem by parking the truck against the containers, but not completely against them. He needs to be able to get out of the truck on the passengers side. If the truck is parked completely against the containers, he will exit on the drivers side. If he exits at the passengers side, he will be stuck between the truck and the containers, because he wants to run forward. That's how I solved it. Don't know if it works elsewhere.

@Cygnum: So that means you kind of let him be stuck between container and truck and finished the russians off yourself and then drove the truck away so that Phil could get to the boat? Because Phil really is the only problem in this fu*kin' mission.

That doesn't work. They just blow up the truck after 100 shots.

Just use your MP5 or SMG and kill all those bastards inside as fast as you can. Also, don't leave him alone inside cause they'll shoot him instead of you!

i tried something differently and i did the mission now in a cool way.
as i was standing in front of the warehouse with the truck (in front, not yet in the conversation with the guard) i called dwayne to give me some backup (you can do it when he likes you a lot) so i waited a bit and two guys arrived. then i drove to the conversation and as the gunfire started the two guys helped me out with killing all the guys and safed phil from dieing.
then as i got in the boat they followed me inside and did shoot at the pursuers while i was throwing grenades out of the window and so i made it.
it was close though i think, phil was covered with blood all over.

Kill a few of em from inside the truck.

Reverse the truck back, get out, take out your sniper and kill as many as you can.

Then enter the warehouse and kill the remaining Russians.

Every GTA game has a few missions that make you want to smack Rockstar's devs upside the head, wondering if they ever even played the mission through.

This, my friends, is one of them.

EDIT: On my fifth try. Bell keeps dying. Again, it's one of those ass-retarded multi-tiered missions where you have to do a lot of pointless f*cking driving for no goddamn reason. It's missions like this that make me hate GTA at times.

Haha, i bet most on here have said "that fuker bell" once or twice in their time playing. I had to do this so many times, i twice got to the jetty but died both times stupidly. Best thing for me, is to kill as many as u can immediately and when the fud bell runs for his kamikaze run stay with him and shot as many as u can shooting him from above. If u stay in his line of fire and keep killing people then bell should survive, and if u need health get it now. The boat bit for me is fairly simple, just distract the two boys and let bell get away, its fairly easy to kill the boat boys once they get close, i had no health when i got to the boats once and didnt lose any dealing with the two rebel boats. Good Luck

What I did was ran into the warehouse as fast as I could after getting out of the truck. With their fire divided between me and Phil I managed to take them all down with the carbine.

I'm so glad that there are others having problems with this. The other annoying thing is that its quite a long drive and have to do it every time you fail! Damn you Phil Bell!!

Weird.

My Phil remained covered at the entrance until we had to get to the boats.

I took my time, too. He didn't move, in fact, he was a valuable asset.

I got really lucky in that I didn't have much trouble with the warehouse part. I had to replay it once because I was an idiot and didn't know [spoiler]Phil[spoiler/] would climb immediately out of the truck (I tried to back away while he charged blindly into enemy fire). The second time, however, I got past.. But tried to shoot the incoming enemy boats and flipped mine over on a rock while I was aiming behind me.

I was so mad that the next time I went back to do the mission I just got out of the seat on the boat and blew them all away with an assault rifle. Worked pretty well. biggrin.gif

This is what i did to pass this mission. I call Packie and ask for a car bomb, then I drove to the wharehouse before I entered into the arrow icon I put the car bomb in it the I drove into the middle of the place dentinated the bomb and kill the enemy on the scafolding and the rest of them whom surived the car bomb explosion. I hope this helps anyone out.

I also had virtually no problems with Phil staying in conver at the door to the warehouse. I fired a rocket first thing inside and took out a few and then just hugged the doorway and took them out one by one. Phil was an asset for me as well as he did kill a couple of guys and he kept their fire off of me at times.

I would like to think I did this on my 1st attempt (my actual 1st attempt I drove straight through and the van ended up in the water)

I must have been lucky on the go that I had as it didnt seem to bad

This took me 3 goes. Phil is a bit of a loose cannon unfortunately and he doesn't seem to know how to use cover. What I did, was run into the warehouse with all guns blazing (An AK47 is best), have full health an armour, and keep locking on to targets with auto aim, and gunning them down as quickly as possible. There is a first aid kit inside the warehouse to the left. Just don't drive the truck inside. The baddies will riddle it with gunfire and it will explode immediately.

So yeah, I think the key to this one is about using speed to gun the mobsters down, and not cover. Also stay just outside the door while doing this. Good luck confused.gif

There seems to be alot of babysitting in this game icon13.gif *R*

Lucky you, i tried that on my first attempt, but there seems to be an invisible barrier, preventing me to go through, aside from the boat lift straps in the middle and pillars on the right...etc...?? mercie_blink.gif

Edit: I managed to drive through and into the water, i was so happy, untill a few seconds later, i saw the message: Bell as died! angry.gif tourns out, the useless s.o.*. got out of the truck in the middle of the ....war zone angry.gif icon13.gif

Here's is how i finally did it: at my 8th attempt angry.gif
As i reached the docks with the truck, prior to reaching the marker, i called Dwayne for backup, i got out of the truck momentarily as the beackup reached close by, then got back in the truck and started the cut scene. As the cut scene ends and i was able to move, i drove the truck inside and to the right, on angle and Phil got out angry.gif i then walked behind what looked like a small container(almost as high as Nikko) and from that cover, i started throwing Granades in all directions, eccept on Phil's direction, which was just to my left. As the noise of gun fire was less frequent, i then used the Carbine(M4) and with Auto Aim, i started shooting in all directions, walking and shooting and then i saw Phil run to the back and as i followed, i shot the last standing s.o.* that was back there waiting for me&Phil and, i have to say, i live up to my name, because, there were "bits&pieces" left of them only lol.gif ..then i jumped in the water to swim towards the boat on the left (green marker on map) and i followed Phil, staying close behind him as to cover him from the boats which will follow for a while. (don't bother to try and turn to shoot at them, just stay close behind Phil) and we then reached the Jetty as i got the message to...disembark on the Jetty, the last cut scene came on and.......yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! icon14.gif Collected my fee $7500 and got on the bike that's under the overpass and .....sprinted to the close Safehouse (X's ex's lol.gif ) while doing wheelies mercie_blink.gif That was one s.o.* of a mission, but now it all seemed soooo easy lol.gif Good Luck to those of you who are about to do it!!

I managed to keep Phil out of the shootout by driving the truck quickly out of the place and parking it on a safe but far away place. For some reasons Phil didn't follow me.

From that point on, I just took my own sweet time finishing off the enemies, and then went back to Phil and proceeded to the boats.

Has anyone done this mission with autoaiming turned off?

I ask because i'm gonna start for the 4th time the game again and i'm thinking about turning off the autoaiming, someone told me the game is harder like that and i'm willing to try to see how it works out.

This mission shows exactly how stupid the savegame design in GTA (all of the parts) is: if the game saved directly after parking the truck outside the warehouse, this could be a fun mission, one could start it over and oer again, developing a good tactic to manage it.

Instead, the game saves ten minutes before, punishing the player extremely for his faults making him do all the stupid driving over and over again before it allows him to retry the mission.

This is not fun, it is frustrating. And I am not a massochist, and why should a game people paid money for be allowed to punish them in such an extreme way?

Sorry, this was the last GTA I purchased, because I want to have FUN with the game, not frustration. And this mission, among some others, is extremely frustrating to me. Not because it is difficult (it generally is easy, except for some missions), but because it is simply stupid in some aspects (like savegame handling).

Do not enter into the warehouse, just keep where you are after the cutscene.

Phil Bell will takes cover on your right side right after exit from the truck.

Then you need to take down all guys in the warehouse as quickly as possible, since you are totally exposed in front of them.

Having backup prior to the fight is recommended, which gives the gangs distraction from shooting at you.

Moving across the entrance is also a good idea.

Many people (including me), hate this!!!!!

It would be good if there would be like a couple checkpoints in every mission, so that you could redo only the part which you can't do.
Like in the last mission on the revenge branch, if you die or fail the mission during the shoot-out or the helicopter ride, you start from the part where you enter the casino. (But even that is still to much of the mission to redo)
