DP/BP/EP/FP Tampa

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have the special Tampa in the game? I know you can get it in the "Nines & AK-s" mission but I'm totaly confused on how to get it...

So does anyone got that car and know how to get it?

Here's my savegame if anyone is interested in trying.

Don't ask why I want that piece of junk for a special vehicle smile.gif

During the mission 'Nine's And AK's' you accompany Big Smoke to Emmet's where you meet Emmet. You and Big Smoke take turns shooting glass bottles as you learn

different shooting techniques, the last portion of which you are instructed

to blow up a Tampa by using the manual aim to shoot its gas tank. It is

important, however, to push the car back before you are instructed to blow it

up, because once that happens, you can obviously blow it up by shooting the

gas tank, hence its loss of prperties. Now, the car will be locked so you'll

have to push it. The car on its own is easy enough to move, all you need to

do is jack another car, and push it into your garage at CJ's house. You have

all the time in the world, as Emmet and Big Smoke will still be waiting for

you to shoot it. Once you do that you'll need to destroy it, which isn't

easy, you can enter the "Destroy All Cars" cheat code and you'll blow up the Tampa obviously as well as Big Smoke's car, which will cause you to fail the

mission. Let the door close to regenerate it and you'll have the car. Be sure to let the garage door open again because if you save without it opening again, the car will be gone when you open it back up after saving.

I never use cheats, and yes, I think that the Tampa is really cool when modded. I always get at least 2 of them from that mission.

 

You can get it without cheats by using System Error’s Bulletproof Car Walkthrough:

If that doesn’t work then I can do it for you when I get home from work, much later today (Friday)

 

edit:

@girishb: I didn't know you had already answered this question, sorry.

 

I copied the section on the Tampa and listed it here (without cheats):

5.02: Bulletproof/Fireproof/Explosionproof/Damageproof Tampa

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

Location: Los Santos Difficulty: ***½

Mission: Nines and AKs Resource F: ***

Character: Sweet

 

This is the car you're supposed to blow up during the mission, which is a

tutorial on how to use guns. Of course, you probably already know how to use

one. Note that you have to put it into your garage *BEFORE* the game prompts

you to shoot the gas tank to blow it up. If you wait until then, it will no

longer have it's special abilities. I previously said that you had to use

cheats in order to get this. aftica, however, told me about a method of getting

it without using cheats. junovalkyrie confirmed this.

 

Method one

----------

Thanks to aftica for telling me about this method and junovalkyrie for

confirming it.

 

Start the mission, and drive with Smoke over to Emmet's. When you are told to

shoot the glass bottle, get in Smoke's Glendale. Go over to the Ganton garage,

take out the forklift, and park the Glendale inside sideways. Leave a little

room at the back. Now put the forklift back in the garage. Here is a diagram

of what it should look like (not drawn to scale).

 

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

| |

| ------------------ |

| | Glendale | |

| | | |

| ------------------ |

| | | |

| |-------| |

| | Flift | |

| | | |

| |-------| |

| |

|/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/

 

Now, go back and get the Tampa. Push it all the way to the Ganton garage. When

you arrive, take out the forklift, and push the Tampa inside, facing sideways.

Here's a diagram of what it should look like now (not drawn to scale).

 

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

| |

| ------------------ |

| | Glendale | |

| | | |

| ------------------ |

| |

| ------------------ |

| | BP/FP/EP/DP | |

| | Tampa | |

| ------------------ |

| |

|/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/

| |

|-------|

| Flift |

| |

|-------|

 

Finally, get in the Forklift, and approach the Tampa. You need to be nearly

forming a T shape in order to get it to work. Raise the lift, and hopefully,

you'll flip the Tampa. Once you do so, get out of the Forklift and run up to

the back wall of the garage. Not joking. The cars will explode in your face,

and you'll fail the mission for ruining Smoke's ride. Assuming Carl wasn't

killed in the explosion, allow the doors to close on the two cars after the

"Mission Failed" text is on your screen. Allow it to reopen, and there you go!

 

To get the Glendale out, come back when there are no more flames. Get the

Tampa out. Park it in a safe spot nearby. Next, get the Glendale out. Finally,

get in the Tampa and park it inside.

Yea there's that but I prefer without cheats so I thought someone would know how to do that...

Mission Failed

 

I did not complete the mission, the BP/DP/FP/EP Tampa is inside The Johnson House garage

 

I was able to keep the Hermes that was already in The Johnson House garage; it’s parked next to the Tampa.

 

Remember, that the Tampa can still get it’s tires shot out, the windshield can still be broken, and it can be destroyed if it flips and stays upside-down too long, or sinks in water.

Other than that, it’s completely indestructible.

 

NO CHEATS

 

Enjoy.
