I don't know why, but Star Junction has always been a favorite. With Cluckin Bell, the stunt jump, so many different ways to get away, and it's wide open. I love the chases.

 

Bohan is another favorite, the alleyways and interiors makes it very fun to have close quarter shootouts.

My personal favourite shootout locations are the various Burgershots and Clukin' Bells. It's f*cking hilarious watching the cops' bodies pile up in the door way.

 

I've always liked Happiness Island for open space shootouts too. :)

My favorite spot is the bathroom at middle park. I keep a sanchez parked outside just in case I need to get to the museum faster for the health pack.

The Hospital in Schottler. It's located at a very nice area in Broker. It has loads of civilians to start a rampage. (And that is also great to shoot Rocket Launchers or throw grenades and watch 'em fly), a first-aid kit and a sprunk machine to recharge my health and also loads of objects to take cover.

Easily the best place for me.

It's gotta be the Burger Shot in Star Junction. I always have epic shootouts there. Always gotta follow these steps, though.

  1. Wear the ski mask with Claude's leather jacket from Playbox X's house, black chinos from Modo and black boots from the Russian Shop.
  2. Go to the Burger Shot in Star Junction.
  3. Call Dwayne for backup.
  4. Go inside the Burger Shop and kill the cashier (or keep firing a gun until you get a wanted level).
  5. Go on top the small table across from the cashier's barrier and use it to jump behind the barrier.
  6. Take cover behind the barrier and wait for cops to come in.
  7. Start killing cops - makes for an epic shootout.
  8. Once you have 5 stars, jump out of the barrier area by going to the right-side corner and jumping on the stool.
  9. With a crazy shootout in the streets, quickly get to the car Dwayne's boys brought and take off (with them if they are still alive).
  10. Lose the cops.

So much fun, i love doing that. Like a mini Three Leaf Clover. I imagine the Burger Shot is a bank xD

Another favorite of mine is at the russian shop. Go in shoot the clerk and the entire block will try to kill you so call the cops and then watch the battle.
As Niko put the brown hinterland jacket on and the camp pants plus the hinterland boots. Make sure you have an ak47 and now your a terrorist

Wow, its been a long time since I played this game just to have a shootout. But when I did it, my favourite place was easily the Grotti car dealership in Algonquin.

 

I'd go up onto the second floor after killing some pedestrians on the bottom, and I'd start shooting out the windows and onto the street, when things got too heavy I'd pick one of the sports cars they have and drive it out through a window and just spend the rest of the shootout escaping from the cops, pretty fun.

Top of Playboy's apartment is a nice location to start a shootout. But i prefer the Libertonian Museum in Middle Park. One health pack inside, one sprunk machine, and two escape routes. When things get to rough, i run for the subway and loose the cops on the rails.

On the roof of the Museum in Algonquin, or the house you and LJ visit in "Concrete Jungle".  Always did my quests for 6 stars there.

I just had a shootout at the tw@ internet cafe near hove beach and the police chopper had hit a building, fell towards me and it killed me.
Litteraly looked like something out of a movie.

  • Wear the ski mask with Claude's leather jacket from Playbox X's house, black chinos from Modo and black boots from the Russian Shop.

I like to take a limo and block the entrance to the Grotti dealership in Middle Park East. From there, kill the people inside and then go upstairs and shoot out the windows. Then steal a car, which brings down the wanted level to 3, and escape the cops.

In the middle of the bridges are a good spot too. Blow a car and use the others for cover. Almost infinite shootout with cops today doing this.

Thanks for answering my PM and making this thread.
Happiness island is a great spot for having helicopter only shootouts.

The vacant crack house from Blow Your Cover is a great place to do a shootout, especially if you block the entrance with a car. That forces the cops to used the further entrance to the crack house via the roof.

I like the AutoEroticar salon in Alderney. You actually have a large shootout there in Payback. The Rocket Launcher and the cars inside the showroom make a nice couple!

My favorite spots

- Clucking Bell in Star Junction (I always start by throwing a molotov in the kitchen and yelling "THERE'S A FIRE IN THE KITCHEN!!!!!")
- any hospital spawns
-roof near playboys apartment (theres a roof opposite from this roof where the cops up the stairs, they always jump off the roof to get me but fall to their death instead.)

I wish I was a mod so I could pin all my threads...

1) The Sprunk factory. The rooftops were tailor made for jumping.
2) The Platypus, changes from close quarters to long-range in a pinch.
3) Acter Industrial, lots of ladders, pipes, and scaffolding, like that area where you kill the AoD for Petrovich in that online mission.
4) The "fun fair", plenty of odd objects to dart around.
5) The classic airport.
6) Chinatown rooftops, like in TLaD's "This sh*t's Cursed"

Johnny got word of the Russians making money in Hove Beach by making pornos. Johnny wanted a slice of that action, as his first move as chapter president. Terry, Clay and John-boy head to the sex shop iHove Beach. Terry is noticeably smoking some sh*tty tobacco. The crew ignores the cashier as they walk into the back room, confronting the Russian businessmen. They cower in fear, and Johnny then executes one of them, then a few from outside start storming in. I've never seen Clay's shotgun been so useful until I had a shootout in there. He was killing people left and right. Cops started to get on ours ass, and all of a sudden we're on a three star wanted level. As Terry, Clay and Johnny ascend from the store, a cop hits Clay's bike and it goes flying. We plow through the cops on foot, tearing through the streets until we got to the walkable bridge that takes you over to Alqonquin. We found a vehicle at the other end, and the chase unsued, Johnny driving Terry and Clay in a PMP all the way to Alderney, where the chase ended. Johnny hit up a Pay n' Spray, and they headed to the club house.

 

Awesomely enough, as Johnny stopped the car outside the club house, Terry and Clay said, "That's us, John" and leave right when I pulled up. Felt really awesome.

:O might try that with Niko or Johnny as a bodyguard, depending on which game I play :p

I like to run around on foot during my shootouts. When things get too rough, i ran to the subway and lose the cops there, while shooting. Last night i ran from Francis International Airport to Presidents City via the bridges. Great fun and intense shootings.
Nesting up somewhere and trying to force a way out is nice too, like the crackhouse from blow you cova or the sex shop in hove beach.

I recently tried a shootout at the Rotterdam bridge on foot. Tried to run from one end to the other. Didn't make and got mowed down by a police patriot. :(

Block the bridge with a car and cars will soon gather up. Use them for cover and to avoid getting hit by police cars
