how to skip RC heli mission

Recommended Posts

PooM

NOTE: THIS IS FOR THE PC VICE CITY. OTHER VERSIONS OF THE GAME MAY DIFFER.

 

i've recently reformatted my computer and realized i didnt make a copy of my Vice City saved game file... soooo, if you cant find or download a saved game file from any site or simply dont want to (like I) then this topic is for you.

 

so as i started the game over again, i eventually got to the mission where you have to use a remote controlled helicopter to pick up bombs and drop them in specific areas in a construction site. the catch is that there are construction workers there that attempt to damage your helicopter... another catch is that you'd have to use your keyboard to do the mission if you didnt have a gamepad. i had one but i couldnt find it.

 

so anyway...

---------------------------

THE FIRST STEP

---------------------------

you have to get to the second city... now the way i did it was difficult and needed alot of patience... wut i did was when i was in the first city i went through the beach down south until i get to the docks right behind the light house. i get 2 stars (get the police on you) and i wait at the docks or at the rocks where the docks are. eventually a police boat will sit close enough to the rocks so that u can hop on and steel it (of course killing the driver). then obviously drive to the second city.

 

second option: try to get ontop of any main bridge and wait patiently for a boat and jump on it (really really hard!)

 

third option: get to a helicopter check point (note that the northern check point is easier since the southern check point requires you to use a car and jump onto the roof of the building where the heli is):

http://www.gtawh.com/vc/maps/checkpoints.JPG

once you've obtained a helicopter get to the second city.

 

---------------------------

THE SECOND STEP

---------------------------

 

Once you've reached the second city, it is strongly suggested to find and buy a hideout. theres this one hide out that requires only $1000. its called the skumole shack, located north of the second city. just take the long road to the right heading up to the north. once the road starts to swerve, and then streight again, u'll see a tall metal stair case to your left (and notice the weapon below it). go up the stairs and buy the place, you should have $1000. once bought, save your game so that any mistake you make, you can reload instantly to the second city without haveing to go back to THE FIRST STEP.

 

Make some money. the funnest way is to do the vigilante missions. they are a little difficult but once you do the first fiew you'll get the hang of it. once you've got alot of money, go buy the Hyman Condo a little more north than the Skumole Shack: http://www.gtawh.com/vc/maps/properties.JPG

 

Once you've bought the Hyman Condo, go through the door way that leads to the top of the building (located right next to the biggest garage), get into the helicopter and fly to The Mansion: http://www.gtawh.com/vc/maps/properties.JPG. Once you get there, go up the steps and into the pink marker. do this mission and the one after it (the first one should be The Chase and the other one should start with Phnom). once the first two missions are complete, get into a car and some guy will come on the radio and state that all the bridges are now re-openned.

 

NOTE THAT YOU MUST DO THE FIRST 2 MANSION MISSIONS TO KEEP THE BRIDGES OPEN... OTHERWISE, IF YOU GO BACK YOU'LL NOTICE THEY'VE CLOSED AGAIN.

if there are any mistakes please post. thanks!

2 things:

The RC heli mission you're talking about is called; Demolition Man

 

Second, I don't see how doing everything you just said will have people skipping that mission. You still have to do the mission to get 100%.

 

 

 

I won't even get into the crappy spelling or how the fact there is a much easier way to skip to the second island than the 3 you mentioned.

1. i maybe wrong, but as i know, you don't have to skip demolition man (point A) to make the bridge open because that's a side mission so that you don't have to do it at all. and when does the heli check point show up? i thought it is some point after the bridge opened up.

 

2. will the mission be there even before the bridge has opened? not sure for this one, as i haven't tried before.

 

3. it is very interesting the first way you described to get to the other side using a police boat. but there are two easier ways - use a pcj600 at the film studio or use an ambulance at the gate where C is.

hmmm as said in the second post, the 100 % completion record will be spoilt. common, challenge yourself, it will help rather than skip it.

1. Avery's missions ARE side missions and not required to open up other islands.

 

2. Diaz's missions WILL NOT open up until you do "Guardian Angels" for Cortez-- I've been to the mansion prior to opening the other islands and there are no mission markers and the mansion is locked.

 

3. The Vice Point and Ocean Beach Chopper checkpoints will not open up until you complete the mission "rub out" in which you kill Diaz-- all the islands are open before this-- there are no helis on the first island until you open up the second.

 

You can get to the 2nd island in a variety of ways but the barriers remain up until you complete missions and Diaz missions do not appear until you progress through the story.

So far all I'm hearing is that he is wrong on just about every count.

So unless he comes back in a few days and explain himself, in English, as to what the heck he talking about, I'm going to lock this.

That, plus why would you want to miss out that mission, it is a good one, plus fun!

It's horrid.

 

For clarification, the last mission I beat was "Supply & Demand," and I have the other island unlocked without having done Demolition Man. However, I think you need to do Demolition man and subsequEnt missions to unlock some missions on the West island.

Yeah. You need to do that mission so you can eventually do "Two Bit Hit." After that mission you get a call from Umberta Robina. Then you can do missions there.

Just wanted to point out that flying helis with a keyboard as opposed to a controller is preferable to some (like myself). Also, the Sparrow checkpoint missions aren't even available until after the bridges have opened up (guess why?). Point in fact, it is passing Rub Out that causes the 3 Sparrows to spawn and G-Spotlight that causes the 1 to spawn. Those familiar with the storyline will understand that the bridges open MUCH sooner than Rub Out. Plus as stated, there are better ways to get to the 2nd island, no way of skipping Demolition Man, etc.

 

ishnt dat veerd?

this is going nowhere-- the same info is being re-hashed and the originator hasn't clarified anything.
