I'm playing through SA again for the 3rd time, but this time with mods. I'm having a blast with this game as always, but last night when doing the mission Pier 69, after killing T-Bone Mendez, I got out my rocket launcher to try and stop Ryder from escaping. I fired a rocket at him, but missed and destroyed his boat instead. He couldn't get in the boat of course, so he swam to the island and just stood there waiting. I swam to the island, got ashore, walked up to Ryder and shot him with my pistol several times. I killed him in a more conventional, realistic way, rather than in some high-octane speed boat chase and explosion scene out of a Hollywood action movie. 

 

Never knew he could be killed this way! Just thought I'd share my experience! Lol

I have used the HEAT Missie launcher from the Airport, Never miss the boat.

There a few missions, such as this, where you can use vehicles, weapons, or even approaches different from the ones that the game implies must be used.  (And there are missions where having the best weapon gets changed to an inferior one)

I think I recall doing this sometime. Destroying the boat before he climbs in causes him to swim to that little island on the San Fierro bay and stand still.

Yeah that's exactly what happened. I was able to kill him in a much more up close and personal manner, considering his betrayal bothered me a lot lol.

I exploded his boat using the minigun and found it pretty good.

I preferred going right up to him and blastin' the fool's brains out !

I left his brain as a meal for the sharks, it's my ecological side.

Yeah I've done that before too.There are multiple ways to do a lot of missions, unlike V where you get silly restrictions.

Interesting stuff. I saw a video in YouTube a few years ago, using the rocket launcher and the sniper, but your method looks better and realistic indeed.

Now if only there was a way to pass the mission without killing Ryder.

As much as I liked him, he had to die. He was that idiot who got led astray and betrayed you, and therefore he had to pay for his dim-witted decision making.

This was actually one of the original easy ways to kill him in strategy guides all over the Internet back then iirc, I remember doing this quite a few times, so much so I got bored of it and decided to let him get on the boat and kill him during the chase.

Yeah I wish we had more missions with him. He had the perfect gangsta vibe.

That's a great way to kill him too, I'd like to try that.

The boat chase bored me eventually, because it's just another mission that involves a chase and an explosion. I'd rather a proper, up-close execution.

Many ways to do the Mission...This is why 3D Era is king.  HD Era is too scripted and never lets you make your own choices during Missions.  You can practically do WHATEVER you want in the 3D Era and the Missions will carry on like normal and can pass them.  Unlike most of the HD Era.  Walk 10 feet away?  "Mission Failed!  You Left The Area!"

You can activate ROCKETMAN or be a really skillful pilot and land on ryder's boat, after landing he'll just commit suicide

Bad idea. See what it led to.  :sarcasm:
