I couldn't do it on the mobile version so my solution was to take my AK-47 and charge them on the boat instead.

You gently park the car on 8 ball then go sniper them but after a while 8ball will get back up and plant the bomb

... gently park the car on 8 ball...

That sounded so funny at first lol.gif But now I realize that it's really a great idea, I've never though of that before.

Park your car in the trademark blue, 8-Ball will leave the car. Exit the car too. Hide. With the Sniper, hit the two Colombians who are at the entrance of the ship. After that, enter the ship. (I recommend that you run, then use an UZI to be able to do this) Protect 8-Ball, shoot the Colombians (they have Ak-47's then you have an AK too). When all Colombians are dead, 8-Ball will enter inside the ship and install explosive. When it does, go to the entry of the vessel and will start a cutscene showing 8-Ball fleeing the ship exploding. Done!

Mission Complete!! icon14.gif

Strangely I find it harder on PC/Android. I can still complete it easily enough but it just seems easier on PS2 (Probably because I am used to it)

8-Ball is such a fool! But you're stuck with him and he's doing his best. I've tried blocking him, using the rocket launcher and I still find popping each cartelista with the sniper is the most reliable way. The only refinement I've found is, first thing, from the first landing of the stairs up the warehouse across from the ship, use the sniper scope to target the middle of the gangplank, between the cartel guys at ground level. Then switch to molotovs and toss one to take out both guys in one action, switch fast to the sniper and start shooting guys left to right, using minimum magnification so you can target faster.

I remember how brutal this mission was. Took me forever my first time playing the game. I've grown accustom to where the Cartel are located on the ship though

This was the mission Rockstar used to always bang on about. Excellent mission.

 

Even now those docks have some "magic" about them!

Parking the car on 8-Ball (oops- GENTLY, I forgot that part! hehe) and using a rocket launcher are some pretty good ideas, and I'm kicking myself for not thinking of them! But in case these don't work for everybody, I have a lesser bit of advice. Just bear in mind that it may need to be confirmed by people with the PC and Xbox versions, because what prompted me to do it was the fact that on my PS2 game, this guy has a habit of moving around after hearing the first shot so much that it's a pain to shoot the ****er!

 

As you're sniping away, ignore the Columbian on the right hand side of the ramp (the one who's furthest away from 8-Ball but not on the boat). I do this every time and 8-Ball never gets iced by him. The extra second or two might not sound like much, but it makes the difference between failure and success for me personally.

But yeah, good tips that could have really helped me in my first playthrough all those years ago...

Hmm, that is strange. Well it worked for me! I wonder if this is the kind of thing that varies from PS2 (that's me) to PC to Xbox...

 

DropThaSystem, sounds to me like you've got a steady hand. I know I'm a disaster when it comes to gunplay in this game! Doing the rampages now and I'm quite sure someone could die laughing at my gameplay if I posted it confused.gif

I guess I do have a pretty steady hand..

 

Also, you can't be any worse than I am. I'm playing rampages right now, and I can't even beat any of them.

Yeah, I'm barely making my way through some of these rampages. The only ones I can do real well are the uzi, flameflower, and car ones.

Just for the record, I've been completing Bomb Da Base by sniping from the warehouse across the from the ship, which gets boring after awhile. So yesterday, for the first time ever, I completed the mission on deck--after four tries. I did park gently on top of 8-Ball, but that only stops him for a few seconds, so just when you think you can concentrate on blowing away Cartelistas, there's 8-Ball right beside you getting wasted (I think I wasted him myself one time.) The way I finally succeeded was, after getting 8-Ball under my car, quickly firing three rockets, one at the two guys by the gangplank on the ground, and two to the deck by the gangplank, then grabbing one of the Cartel Cruisers and driving up on deck--8-Ball was out from under my car by now--and hosing down the deck drive-by style, and when the cruiser started to flame, I hopped out and blew away the last Cartelista just as 8-Ball made it up on deck. This made a much better action scene than sniping from across the way.
