how do i blow up cars with 1 shot?

Recommended Posts

sronsr

well i tried to recreate the scene in the third trailer of where someone falls off a bridge(or crane - cant remember) and lands on a car and the car roof bents, well i pushed a car off the bridge to the charge island and it blew up in touch with the ground,

also in some missions i shoot a car and it blows up with 1 shot,

 

where exactly do i have to hit to cause it to blow up easily?

I would like to know the answer to this also. It makes me wonder why shooting the gas tank area no longer works sad.gif

Shoot around the area of the back wheels of the car, it seems to set the car on fire and then explode but in a few shots.

That is a semi-cutscene(It changes depending on where you shoot the person) from the mission Deconstruction for Beginners

Them one shot explosions in missions; set pieces, like in Three Leaf Clover where the cop cars explode.

 

And if you want instant explosions, then try driving into gas stations and shooting propane tanks on the food vendors. die.gif

I notices if you get a shotgun you can blow a cop car up in about three shots. And a few missions this happens with the gas tank are: Deconstruction for Beginners, Three Leaf Clover, and some mission with the named <***** Museum>- I can't remember the first word...

Cars usually blow up faster when you shoot around the rear license plate

well thanks(btw i havent seen the cutscene confused.gif when that guy falls down on the car)

 

i've tried several spots, shoot on the "suspension"(just above the tyre) of the rear wheel(s) and it should cause the car to burst into flames pretty fast/in 1 shot

combat auto-shotty(the longer one)- about 4 shots to flame most cars. hit the back or side if possible. need to be reasonably close.

 

vendor propane tanks- also 3-4 shotgun blasts-but just 1 from combat pistol. note: this has come up so I looked-I believe hotdog carts dont have external tanks (red). probably WONT blowup when driven into/over. and are bigger and square shaped.

if its a smaller unit and has a red propane tank on the front then beware driving into/over it., and alternatley, easy an fun to shot n blow it. sigh.gif

The mission is called Museum Piece.

Sorry for bumping, but all you have to do is get a gun more powerful than the 9mm, like the rifle, and shoot the gas-cap. On most vehicles it is a little square by the back. On ambulances, it is on the back. To shoot down helicopters, shoot the fan under the blades. Hope this helped.

I'm nearly positive that it's possible. I remember thinking it was weird that the gas tanks weren't outlined even though you could still blow up the car by shooting them.

Most cars that I've looked for gascaps on don't even have them. It's as if they don't exist. They should have carried this from SA. Just another feature that was overlooked in GTA: IV's creation process. *shame, shame, shame* I know they were trying to be realistic but realistic is pretty boring.
