Ambulance missions on Ocean Beach on first try? Do you mean first try ever? If not, it's not a big deal.

Ditto-- I prefer ocean beach for paramedic-- if you know the shortcuts its pretty easy there.

 

One thing to mention about any of the R3 missions-- your vehicle heals a little bit for each level completed-- I'm relatively certain it does if for taxi too-- I'm not sure if it does it for each passenger or say every 5 or 10 passengers.

 

The health that is added is cumulative also, meaning there is virtually no limit-- you can get to the point in brownthunder where the hunter becomes virtually indestructible-- I finished it before after about 1000 levels in a row and unloaded about 70-80 rockets into it before it blew up-- obviously if you do more damage per level then is added back, then eventually you will destroy your vehicle-- I did catch the hunter on fire one time during brown thunder (early on) and completed a level a few seconds later (before it blew up) and the flames stopped

...

Nice work, mate!

 

Don't worry, your method doesn't seem far-fetched in any way, so I'll believe you! Indeed, you didn't have to complete Avery Carrington's missions (or the Cubans, Haitians, Phil's and Big Mitch Baker's for that instance), so it's a good job you didn't decide to complete them, which a lot of people would normally do, and of course that would only waste time.

 

A question though, how did you end up only equipped with the Pistol for the mission Death Row? Did you lose all your previous ammo beforehand? (I can only assume you still had the Chainsaw, but opted not to use it, which is understandable). And at least you actually had a weapon, unlike me (see few posts above yours!)

 

And props to you for managing to distinguish Diaz with only your fists! That's an achievement in itself! icon14.gif Do you know exactly how many jabs it took to kill him? I assume it took a lot, since him and Sonny take a lot of shots with the Colt Python (5 I believe) to kill.

 

You used a Baseball, and only a baseball to complete Shakedown? If so, then that is actually another challenge you have successfully completed; Can you complete Shakedown using nothing but melee weapons? Once you verify this, it will be added to the table as well.

 

One thing though, the Kruger and shotgun located in the cellar of your mansion aren't actually mission pick-ups, as they are there all the time. Is there any way you can rectify this, maybe you saved prior to attempting the mission Keep Your friend's close?

 

Loczek47, you'll be surprised at how quickly you will get the fares done. There's no harm in trying, right?

 

Canoxa, Indeed it is. It was one of the earlier challenges, composed by cacarla. I thought adding it would improve the activity in here, since it is relatively simple, but it turns out the people who attempted these challenges went for the more difficult ones. biggrin.gif

Yeah with diaz it took about 20 punches, and lance helped to be fair biggrin.gif

 

Death row- I got a pistol from the mall shootout mission. I don't remember if I had another gun, it was ages ago now.

 

Also, was I allowed to look for weapons smile.gif cuz I assumed I was knowing that those weapons were already there, with the armour. But anyway I think I would have been able to complete it again, but I'm not gonna try.

 

Anyway, It took me 5 attempts on the last mission and rub out, seeing as killing main charactars is always bloody lengthy and difficult (last time I used a shotgun and he survived about 4 shots!

The best way to do the challenge "100 fares of taxi without pay N spray is first do 100 fares WITH pay n spray and then finish the protection ring asset for taxi company and then go into the zebra cab and whenever there is a car coming in your way then you put the hydracles and you will jump over the car and then you wont take any damage biggrin.gif !!

I did that in 43 minutes and finished i got 100 fares without pay N sparay and i finished the challenge in 43 minutes

Any comments please tell

Dont you people think we need to pin this topic??

as this is very interesting and may help people do challenges confused.gif

if you people say then please i wish a moderator pins this topic

I've managed to update the table (added mine, Vercetti27's and Hotwheels83's challenge attempts).

 

Vercetti27, unfortunately mate, you aren't allowed to pick up weapons not handed to you for the purpose of the mission (I.E the Kruger and Shotgun located in the cellar of Vercetti mansion), so I'm sorry to say that unless you can complete the mission again, I can't say that you've done it. I have added your method onto the table though, mentioning that you used forbidden weapons. It's up to you to rectify it now, that is, if you choose to. Oh and, you don't pick up a pistol from the mission Mall shootout, you actually have it handed to you by Lance during the mission Back alley brawl. I assume that is what you actually meant?

 

I have included your Shakedown with the baseball bat method onto the table, though.

 

Hotwheels83, nice going there, buddy! And very clever tactics too! If you completed the challenge in only 43 minutes, then that means it took you approximately 43 seconds to complete each fare. icon14.gif

 

In regards to the possible pin, I'm swaying with Spuds here, if it is active enough, it will remain at the top of the page, and I feel if it is pinned, it won't increase the activity it is receiving now, it may actually decrease it. Many members tend to ignore pinned topics, and this will (more than likely) be no exception.

 

It all depends on what Spuds thinks, but in my opinion, I don't think it warrants a pin, unless it begins to drastically fall down the page, and this sub-forum's activity goes with it (which I can't see happening). I appreciate the sentiment though.

i had done the challenge "Can you finish the mission Keep Your Friends Close without any standard weapons and i finished it!! wink.gif

first after the cutscene i went in front near the stairs and killed everybody with fists

afterwards the dialogue came to kill Lance so instead of going upstairs to chase him i went down through the main entrance!! i killed the men near the garage and took out a mesa grande

afterwards i used the method flicko, me and some more people had done earlier mentioned in this topic(i think first challenge)which i did with pcj-600 i thought why couldnt i do with mesa grande and ram Lance over as i was heading upstairs 1 person almost blew my car up but i crushed him suicidal.gif and proceded

after sometime i went to the roof just as flicko did with a mesa grande and then rammed Lance over

The other people blew up the car just as i was heading towards the entrance

I didnt care about my money because i had $498k with me

i flee from my car and then went towards the front of the mansion because i wanted to jump from the roof and fall near the garage

Unluckily i was hiding from the men behind the infernus to take the mesa grande so that time they had blown the infernus

So there was no infernus there to ram and kill Sonny.

Isaw in my garage and there was an enforcer!! i took it and went into the mansion. biggrin.gif

Before the cutscene began i turned the enforcer around so it would be facing Sonny suicidal.gif

as soon as the cutscene began and i could control the enforcer i charged towards Sonny and killed him wink.giflol.gif

MISSION PASSED $30k sly.gif

If anybody has doubt that i am lieing because how i can do KYFC over and over again than he is misunderstanding because i have a particular save which i never save because i want the enjoyment of KYFC over and over again anuj_cop.gif

Awesome! I assume, as you were killing Sonny's goons with only your fists, you must have had full armour and health? If I recall correctly, you have to kill around nine of Sonny's goons before you get the nod to go and kill Lance.

 

Very nice thinking regarding storing the Mesa Grande in your garage, it's nice to know that one of my challenges has helped you complete another challenge. How many times did you have to run Lance down? Or did you just run him down once and then left the Mesa Grande on top of his body?

 

Again, in regards to running Sonny down, did you constantly ram him or just run him down once, then left the Enforcer on top of him until he died?

 

Fantastic work, mate. icon14.gif

 

I've got a couple more challenges, and they are-

 

-Can you complete the RC Chopper checkpoint in under six minutes, without the use of either the radar or blips?

-Can you win the RC Baron race in under two and a half minutes, without the use of the radar or blips?

-Can you win Hilary in the mission, The Driver, without the use of the radar or blips?

 

I've actually just attempted the RC Chopper checkpoint challenge, and I did it in a time of 6:28, twenty eight seconds out. I haven't attempted this side mission for a fair while, but I was confident I knew where all the checkpoints were... I didn't! I'm not going to go into details and list which checkpoints baffled me a bit, because that could ruin the challenge for others! biggrin.gif

I've done keep your friends close with the use of weapons given to you. I remeber I only had a pistol and managed to juggle going for health and killing sonny's goons.

 

Took me 10 shots to kill sonny but I just shot the red things on the roof to kill lance.

See first i stood near the entrance with my back facing the colt python pickup.As soon as sonny's men were in sight i killed them devil.gif

ya i killed Lance and sonny by continueasly ramming them and when i was going to kill sonny with my second hit i came charging down and pressed enter!! biggrin.gif i flee from the enforcer and the truck rammed into him and killed him devil.gif

and good work with the new challenges colgate.gif

Nice job, buddy! You have successfully rectified this challenge, and I can now deem it as successfully completed! Although, instead of sticking with the Pistol, you could have picked up the colt Python and used that, seeing as it was provided to you solely for the mission. Nevertheless, well done. icon14.gif

 

I've actually composed a further five, yes five challenges (I don't half spoil you ! tounge.gif), and they are-

 

-How many "Ice-creams" can you sell with a six-star wanted level?

-Can you successfully kill Carl Pearson, the pizza delivery boy, on the assassination contract mission Road Kill, with the maps and blips disabled?

-Can you (un)intentionally kill Mrs Dawson in the assassination contract mission, Waste The Wife, using only a helicopter as your weapon (Hunter and Sea Sparrow excluded)?

-Can you win the Vice Street racer race 5; VC Endurance with the Sea Skimmer?

-Can you successfully complete the mission Checkpoint Charlie with a Sea Skimmer?

 

I'll be sure to attempt all of these in the near future, they look like a blast!

I tried the road kill (pizza boy assasination) challange (map n blips off) (it was an open challenge i wanted to give it a try)

 

I did this mission with map and blips off easily

 

Here is what i did.

1. I jacked a Comet

2. I drove to the payphone.

3. I turned the map and blips off.

4. I left the Comet's door open and started the mission

5. I jumped in my Comet and i drove to the place near the ammunation at the south (near Colonel's place)

6. I passed the ammunation and continued driving.

7. Near the Pay n Spray (South ofc) i found him .

8. You know what i did after smile.gif MISSION PASSED

 

(maybe i was lucky but this challenge was VERY easy for me and if you dont believe me i ll redo this mission and post screenies) (I have a screenshot now but only after i killed him sad.gif in front of pay n spray )

 

EDIT : This took me 2-3 minutes maybe this shouldnt be considered as a challange?

Fourteen may not seem like a lot, but, to me, that is extremely impressive. As soon as you receive a six-star wanted level, you can barely stay in one fixed location for over 5 seconds without getting rammed by either the Police car, Rancher, FBI Cheetah, Barracks OL or completely destroyed by the Rhino. Add to that the constant amount of shots received by the Police Maverick, as well as SWAT guys being lowered to shoot you down and you've got yourself a real challenge. I have actually attempted this challenge myself (aside from verifying it works before I composed it), and on my first five attempts I sold a total of... zero ice creams! I couldn't stay in one fixed position at all without getting rammed by one form of the FBI. On my sixth attempt I managed to sell three, by topping up on Uzi ammunition, then getting in the Mr Whoopee, and heading over to the alleyways in Ocean Beach, where occasionally a few pedestrians spawn. I then got my six-star wanted level and managed to sell three ice-creams before a Rhino snuck up on my and blew me to pieces! I must say though, I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge, and shall be attempting it again in the near future.

 

Shark_Cipriani, Fantastic! Another contributor! Great work on the challenge, mate. And I'm extremely surprised you succeeded at the first attempt. When I verified the challenge I had no such luck! And a screenshot isn't necessary, I believe you. icon14.gif

 

Both methods, as well as my puny attempt at the Ice-cream challenge will be added to the table in due course.

 

Edit, everything has been updated.

I tried "The Driver" mission w/o map & blips.

You know this mission is hard enough with map and blips.

I tried couple of times to pass it.After a few tries i remembered the roads,places.

Then I managed to pass it on my 3rd or 4th try with the race time of 2.11

If u dont believe me (i know you do usually- i just want to make sure you have no doubts) i ll redo and post screenies.

Excellent work again, mate! I do indeed believe you, and proof is not required (the time also seems pretty legitimate). The key is to memorise the route, and you'll master the race after a while. Thinking in my head, I know the exact route, but the mission has usually proved a tough one for many people, so I'm impresed you have succeeded in so few attempts. And it's great to see you sticking around and having a go at more of these challenges. icon14.gif

Care to share your method with us? Perhaps a specific location you go to where it becomes difficult for the law to get to you? Anywhere where there's people means that usually cops/Police helicopters can get to you within seconds. How exactly did you go about this challenge?

Any ideas on beating the "Waste the Wife" mission just with a helicopter (except hunter and sea sparrow ofc) ? I tried 2 times but i failed. It seems VERY hard. Dunno maybe flipping it over may work with the help of some luck?

Regarding the Waste The Wife mission attempt with the Chopper, I haven't yet had a chance to give the mission a go, but I've got a couple of ideas up my sleeve for when I do get round to attempting this. Haven't got a clue if I'll succeed or not, the challenge is a definite tester.

I typically do the "ice cream" thing at Viceport.

 

Are you saying that cops on foot don't spawn in some alleys in Little Haiti or Little Havana? I can think of some places you can go where no peds spawn at all, but that wouldn't be very conducive to the success of the side mission.

 

Anyway, I plan to resume my challenge once I re-establish control of my PS2 ph34r.gif

I'm the same. I usually always do the mission in Viceport, most of the pedestrians there do actually want to purchase ice-creams. But with a six-star wanted level, it becomes nigh-on impossible to sell even one ice-cream without being blown to smithereens!

 

Hotwheels, where exactly did you complete this challenge? I know you did it in Little Haiti/Havana, but where abouts exactly? Feel free to mark out the exact spot on the SnapMap if you wish. It's not that I don't believe you, because I certainly do, but, off the top of my head, I can't think of a place in Little Haiti/Havana where peds continuously spawn, which is also out of the reach of any form of police.

 

And it's nice to know you'll be back and involved with this soon, James. biggrin.gif
