Are the airstrip missions necessary?

Recommended Posts

Are the missions at the airstrip (not flight school, the missions after that) absolutely necessary to advance the game or are they just optional missions? I'm having a hell of a time with the Area 69 mission and I'm just going to go back to LV and continue the Mafia and Robbery missions for now.

 

As a matter of fact, is there a list somewhere of missions you can skip if you feel like it?

I ve have got a feeling that you need to do them. Im not that far yet and it has been a loong time since I have even plugged in the Ps2.

 

I would be very surprised to find those missions optional.

Absolutely necessary or you won't proceed with the other missions.

Well that's just friggin great. Can the Area 69 mission be completed even if the guards spot you? If I stop to kill everyone, time runs out. If I don't kill everyone, I get spotted.

 

Man, they really went overboard with the difficulty of the missions in this one. Games are supposed to be FUN, not piss you off until you start screaming at the monitor at the top of your lungs. I just finished the "cop wheels" mission after the 30th try and I swear to god I was ready to beat a hole in the wall.

you have to disable the missiles to stand a decent chance of completing area 69, or you just get shot down as soon as you escape. if you get stuck, find an online guide that will explain how to do them. took me 2 or 3 attempts to complete that one before i found the control room. in the first part of the mission, outside, head to the middle without being spotted (crouch) and take them all out with the sniper using the map to see where they are. you can still complete it when you are spotted by going in the vent.

The black Project mission? No sweat about this really, and not bragging about it. Not even important anymore to go through all the trouble disabling the SAM. Just shoot your way towards the vent and from there you should be able to make your way to the jetpack with relative ease. the guards aren't even that aggressive to confront you and you can almost take them out like eating a piece of cake smile.gif

I don't think it is posisble to go in undetected, they wouldn't have that alternate way if they didn't want you to use it. (they say to use the sniper rifle to take out search lights, thist just makes them spot you anyway). Just go in through that vent, sprint past guard. From then on out it is just walk around with the M4 in targeted mode. Also, after you have gotten out of the base, it says you can press LSHIFT to descend quickly. DO THIS, as the missles will not come after you if you are walking on the ground.

No no no, it's very possible to go in undetected. And they don't tell you to shoot out the search lights. They tell you that you can go onto a tower and shoot all the guys down below with a sniper rifle. They also say that shooting more than 2 search lights gets you detected. Just shoot everybody you can with the sniper rifle. And shoot out the 2 search lights that you think will give you the most trouble, then haul ass to the vent.
