Death From Above

Recommended Posts

JustRob

Today I got the mission "Death From Above" from Martin Madrazo. In said mission Martin suggests I parachute into the given location. So, I started the mission, called Pegasus for my chopper, flew over to the mansion, and parachuted down. I was dead before I got anywhere close to the ground, as the guards seem a bit trigger happy.

 

So the retarded strategy that Martin suggests aside, what's the best way to tackle this?

Tried the tank, it doesn't fit through the small path that leads to the back of the mansion.

then just fire blasts from the tanks at the house and through that narrow drive way . btw there are two entrances anyway , use the bigger on in the front . the guns from those guys cant hurt the tank

Land the chopper on a nearby roof. Snipe as many as you can until the police start to be a pain. Fly off, lose the police, go back snipe some more, etc. When there's no more signs of life, go in with caution but you shouldn't have much of a problem.

Buzzard is a good choice 👍

Buzzard, the solution to just about every difficult mission as the missiles lock onto each individual enemy regardless if they are on foot or not.

One of my favorite missions.

 

The way I do it solo is come in through the east entrance of the mansion and eliminate the guards that are in the immediate vicinity (one of the rooftop guards included). After that take cover behind the SUV parked in front of you and eliminate the guards at the north entrance from there. Drop a sticky bomb on the south end of the SUV to blow it out of your way during your later escape. If your quick enough, the cops should just be arriving to your rear. Head south to the back of the mansion taking out guards and cops at your flank as necessary. Where you want to end up is the wall behind the stairway, south of the target, it's your stand off point as all remaining enemies will be to your front-left and front-right. It's also rather easy to toss a grenade into the area the target is hiding from this spot. Police Choppers like to gravitate towards your left over the pool and drop NOOSE officers so keep that in mind. Take out the target and head to his position to take the picture required. This area is good to eat candy bars and collect yourself because it has a roof. Lester can also be called from here to get rid of the cops. Now for the escape, leave east the way you came in. There should be two cars parked in front of the garages take one and detonate that sticky you dropped if you haven't yet. Floor it in all your glory and lose the cops.

 

 

TL;DR version; become Bruce Willis.

 

 

For the most part, not every player has the buzzard.

Tanks and helicopters don't come with the mission, you have have to acquire them. If you don't own either, I think you can call Lester and get him to locate one for you.

Haha tanks make quick work but I'm a total adrenaline junkie. I also refuse to stop for the 3 seconds and put my helmet on when riding a motorcycle. Yeah, I live on the edge.

Use a buzzard and the rockets will lock onto the body guards. I strafed the building several times and then my buddy jumped out and killed the target and took the pic, call Lester after the pic is taken and you're done.
