Everyone says how easy this mission is. I've been struggling with it for months, usually getting to killing 7 Yardies before failing, falling just short. Any strategies on mowing down 8 within the time? I know they spawn at random, but would I be better starting in a certain area? (I know the first 2 always appear in the same place) What about a car? I always take a Banshee or Cheetah due to their speed, but they eventually blow up on me. Should I take something a little sturdier?

The car I usually use for just about any driving mission is the Yakuza Stinger. To me, it's the perfect mix of speed and maneuverability, without being too sensitive to damage; unlike the Banshee, for example, which is fast but can be tough to handle with turns and can't take too many hits. Besides, I like the Yakuza paint job too.

Much like "Payday for Ray" or "Marked Man", this mission is mostly about knowing the map and how to get around Staunton Island. The more you drive around and learn where the pushers usually spawn (and there is somewhat of an outline of a pattern in it), you'll continue to improve. I definitely suggest using the handbrake (if you don't already) for making sharper turns without losing too much speed. Also try to work out a plan as to where you'll go next after taking out the dealer you're currently hunting for, as in what general direction you'll need to haul ass off to when you do find him.

Just keep at it, man. smile.gif

Thanks, I'll try your suggestions.

Any advice on which spots to hit first? I know the first two are always in the same place, but then it feels like a crapshoot. They tend to be in Aspatria around the stadium a bit, but should that be my first destination? Because the radar only shows the general direction, it's tough to gauge distance, so sometimes it feels like I'm wasting time by going out too far.

Some guides say that after Belleville Park, the dealers show up in Bedford Point, Aspatria, and Torrington. Do you find this accurate, and do you have a particular order to go in?

I have my Payday for Ray route down pat, but again, the phones are always in one place, whereas the dealers are not, so that's why this is a little harder.

Before the timer starts, cruise around and find all 8 stands. Then you can follow the dots on your map for an easy completion smile.gif

Wrong mission. You're thinking of Espresso 2 Go. This is the one with the Yardies just standing around.

BEFORE YOU READ THE THINGS BELOW, PLEASE PUT IN MIND THAT I INSTALLED THE REALGTA3 MOD PACK BY PETR DOUPAL.

This mission was quite easy, although the car I used was too low, so when I run over the sidewalk, the car "leaps".

I used the Toyota Supra (Yakuza Stinger) and managed to kill 14, most of them being run over like peds.

Well, if your GTAIII isn't really that modded, I still recommend the same car, the Yakuza Stinger. Since it is a mission from Kenji, it is in the casino, right? To get a car easily, head to the
casino's parking lot.

The Banshee is good, but it fails in drifting with the handbrake. The Idaho is a little too slow when it comes to engine power, and so is the Sentinel.

The Yakuza Stinger is such an all-around vehicle.

With the problem on which Yardie pusher to kill, first target what seems to be the easiest to reach. But the mission doesn't end when you reach 8 kills, it ends when everyone is off the streets. Each additional kill will give you a bonus of $1000. So the formula to see how much bonus did you score is:

Your kills - 8 + $1000 = Your money!!!!

So to make my 14 kills an example,

14 - 8 + $1000 = $6000 bonus

So, uhhhh, good luck biggrin.gif

Thanks for the suggestions, guys. I found my own way, with two specific points I found on my own:

1) I actually start off using a Cop Car. They are fast and can take a good amount of damage. Plus, I can get the other cars out of my way by turning on the siren, though that can sometimes make everyone drive erratically and make my path worse.

2) Rather than riding it into the ground and going until it blows up (like I was doing when I was stuck) and hoping something fast comes along, I start keeping my eyes open after about 5-6 kills, even if I'm not smoking too bad. Usually I'll take a Kuruma, since they are fast and durable enough to get me to where I need to go, so instead of being stuck with nothing but a Pony to steal with little time left to get the last dealer, I got a fresh car that I can get some more mileage out of.

And then there's still an element of luck, as the last time I played, the new dealers kept spawning on the street I was on.

I'm glad you did. Keep up the good work. You're kinda right, because even though you drive a Yakuza Stinger, when a pesky enemy gang member start shooting you, you could smoke real bad and after a few bumps you might have a hard time searching for good cars.

You have a good strategy.

The Stinger is a Porsche dipsh*t
