I've been through the city and killed 199 of the 200 flying rats, but I can't find the last one. I have the strategy guide, and I've been through and killed every single flying rat in order, with the exception of a few dotted around the city which I came across before I started shooting all of the flying rats.

I've been to all of the places where I'm not sure sure as to whether I killed the flying rat or not and I still can't find it. Could it be a glitch?

I know it will be annoying, but only way out I see is to use strategy guide to go to every pigeon location. confused.gif

You get the little bastard perched up on the right spire of the Church in Algonquin? I would have never got that one, but I was just checking out the comparison to the actual cathedral in Manhattan.

Thanks for the help guys, but I've already done the Statue of Happiness and the Algonquin church.

Did you get the one on the bullseye statue in the Civilization Committee yard ? after I shot the pigeons I was missing one also.... thats where I found it. That map shown above is missing that pigeon.

The one outside the spoof of the UN building? Yeah, I got that one. I just had another sweep of the city and went to dozens of pigeon location I wasn't 100% sure about, and I still can't find that last one. The only explanation I can think of is that it's a glitch.

Oh god that sucks. That happened to me with those damn horse shoes in San Andreas.

Looks like your going to have to go over every last goddamn pigeon location all over again. I feel sorry for you.

Well, I know that the one I'm looking for isn't on the bottom half of Alderney. I had an old game-save with the bottom half of Alderney still left to do. I loaded it up, shot a pigeon down there and the numbers still didn't add up. (I have the guide remember).
Looking through my strategy guide, I can only find a handful of pigeons I can't remember shooting, and I've already been to all of those. Perhaps I shot one previously in the story and loaded up the game-save again for whatever reason. But even then, I've been to all of the pigeon sites that I did before I started hunting all the pigeons.

This is the best help for finding all the pigeons. After using the IGN map and missing one pigeon, I used this one and found them all.

I've already seen that, and it didn't really help. Thanks anyway.
I might just have to go back and do every single one.

I'm having the same prob. I got the strategy guide and went thru it one by one. But I still have 199/200. So I went thru again and checked them one by one. Still no luck finding that last one.
It must be very well hidden and I just assumed that I already got it since it wasnt there when I checked.

BTW- Whats the benefit of getting all 200?

I also went thru 1 by 1 crossing them off when I shot them. I still never got all 200 and only shot 3 at most before i went looking angry.gif

I've started going to every location again and covered about 130 without any luck. I still reckon I'll end up 199 again tho!

Proving the point that I think putting "hidden packages" in the game is f*cking ridiculous. It is NOT fun to run around for hours and kill pigeons. And it is also IMPOSSIBLE unless you use some kind of maps.

Also, the helicopter you get is probably impossible to use as a weapon and control.

I have the same issue, I know exactly which rat I haven't hit yet and it's not there. I even went through stuff a second time... I think one of em just doesn't spawn properly. Wish I knew why.

I thought it was pretty disappointing how the "marked locations" feature from VCS didn't make it into GTA IV (something that I found a real step backwards). Basically, the map would mark the locations of found balloons, jumps and everything like that. GTA IV really could have benefited from something like that.

I think everbody feels the pain of the pigeons...I also have only one left to go, that little SOB. it makes be want to cry like a little girl. Furthermore, i was very methodical in checking them off and saving my game. I know Im going to have to go over everyone agian, however one that eluded me a bit was one which was in the skate park underneath a bridge.
