The Gangs are ruthless

Recommended Posts

lazloisdavrock

Been awhile since I jumped back into GTA3, but i must say. The gangs in this are the most aggressive in the series, bar none. After pissing off the Triads and Mafia going back to Portland can be a pain in the ass. Drive down their turf while doing a mission and your car will be trashed in seconds by showers of bullets. Its a bit of a shame rockstar hasnt been able to replicate this in the other games. San Andreas is a close second atleast.

 

Bravo Rockstar.

Not sure I'd want this level of hostility in any GTA. I practically completely avoided those few blocks where mob ruled as even driving by relatively fast would usually result in getting shot once and the car being on fire, a millisecond later and you see and explosion. Too fast in my opinion. After mob, Yardies were a bit of a nuisance, but could be handled unlike the mob.

The rest of them did attack, but I never found them as threatening as these two.

Actually these gangs shouldn't have been a problem fro any of the gamers, even the Mafia. There are many BP cars in the game, most notably the BP Patriot. You should use these and tell them who is the boss!

I never found the yardies to be much of a problem. The Cartel, yeah they were a bummer when you left your vehicle near where they hung out and they attacked you with their AKs. But the worst had to be the Mob, especially how their shotguns can somehow cause your speeding vehicle to explode, along with the fact that with one hit from the shotgun you get knocked down. So I'm shot by the shotgun with about half my life left, I'm laying on the ground as like 4 mobsters stand over me, waiting to get up, and once I get back up - bam.

 

Goddamnit, whoever's leading the Leones now.

One fun thing that I do with my friends is to drive around and shoot the gangs and see who gets the higher time without cheats. Is fun, but apart from that, I stay the f*ck away of those gangs. They're dangerous as f*ck sometimes, but I like to drive around in peace once in a while, so avoid their territories unless I want to shoot someone.

Bravo Rockstar.

Actually, most of us are grateful that the gangs in later GTA series don't make it a pain to visit parts of the map. I think Rockstar learned something from that mistake they did in GTA III. However they are fairly close repeating because in GTA Online they put a gang attack in Sandy Shores airfield thus making it almost impossible to grab ones aircraft without being shot to smithereens.

 

In GTA III, there is probably a good reason why the player is given a bulletproof Patriot. It should be saved and thus being used to visit Portland after the mafia and the triads has it out for Claude.

True, Ray doesn't clearly state that Claude should TAKE CARE OF IT for nothing.

Funny thing is, when I played GTA III when it got out, I didn't keep it. I just thought "Looks like a normal patriot to me" and left it there since I was driving an awesome FBI sedan car. *facepalm*

 

Does Ray explicitly say that the patriot is bulletproof?

Yes, Ray says the Patriot is Bulletproof. This vehicle isn't special, though. In my 100% GTA III Game Save, I have 7 proof vehicles. BP/FP Securicar, AP/EC Stretch, BP/FP Trashmaster, BP/DP Barracks OL, AP Bobcat, BP/DP Patriot, and AP Cheetah.

 

Notice my Patriot and Barracks OL are also DP...This is because I used the legendary Crusher Glitch to make them DP, while it keeps the original properties of the vehicle. The Bobcat and Cheetah were also originally BP/FP/EP, but I converted it to DP, so now they are fully All Proof Vehicles (BP/DP/EP/FP), just like the Stretch from "Salvatore's Called a Meeting."

 

So yeah, when it comes to every 3D Era Game, it's always best to collect proof vehicles. Notice what it says under my username "Proof Vehicle Collector" - It's all I do in GTA Games, go for 100% Completion with the best stats, like 0 Cheats, 0 Deaths, 0 Busted, 0 Missions Failed, etc and also I collect all or as many as I can Proof Vehicles from the missions. I have amazing collections in III, VC, SA, LCS, and VCS...

 

O.T. - I like the Gangs in GTA III. I actually don't find any of them deadly for the most part except the Leones because of their shotguns. Basically, if you are going for 100% in GTA III, you actually need to plan and do certain things first before doing other things, or it'll make getting to 100% literally impossible. For instance, try completing Paramedic Level 12 AFTER the Mafia hates you....You won't be able to do it...

 

When it comes to GTA III, it's best to do AS MUCH AS YOU CAN, including 100 Hidden Packages, 20 Rampages, 20 Stunt Jumps, all BEFORE the mission that comes after "Luigi's Girls." Glitching to Staunton Island and Shoreside Vale is SO easy in GTA III, so anybody can get the side stuff out of the way before the 2nd or 3rd mission into the game. And if you go for 100%, I recommend doing all of this stuff before starting on the story missions and collecting proof vehicles from the missions.

Probably wouldn't be so bad if the vehicle you're in couldn't be blown up instantly if one of the gangsters are using a shotgun. Or how you're pretty much dead if you get knocked over.

Plenty of ways dude, this is actually one of the most common ways

And yeah OP, I remember back then being afraid to even mess with most of Portland in the middle and end of the game.. I still am but I learned to take care of that BP Patriot Ray gives you (I always left it alone thinking I wouldn't need it)

It's one of the reasons I admire the atmosphere in this game, just shows that when they said Liberty City is dangerous, they weren't bluffing.

@Dreaded Verse, you can also use the Crusher Glitch to make your vehicle a Ghost and drive through the Porter Tunnel through the walls, since you are a Ghost you can just drive through the walls. LOL...Also the Crusher can make any vehicle Damage Proof (DP) and all you do after you make the car a Ghost is park it in your garage and now you have a DP vehicle which will never dent or get destroyed from crashing into things. It's good to make Ray's BP Patriot, BP/DP.

 

Search Youtube on how to go to SI and SSV early in GTA III. The way I personally do it is the way I saw in a 100 Hidden Package Guide early on in the game, and all they did and what I do is go to this one area in Portland and park my vehicle at the edge and open the door to my vehicle, and falling into the ocean water, however, when you fall in, you don't die, but you go through Blue Hell and land on something solid under the map that you can walk across and then just jump off and it'll respawn you in SI. It's really neat and beneficial to go at GTA III to 100% with doing as much as you can early on before starting missions. 100 Hidden Packages collected while using high powered weapons or RPG for missions is SO easy.

I also liked this feature. Really enjoy the challenge of having to have a planned order to make 100% easier. Plus once you've done everything the hostile gangs can always provide some fun and some challenges.

Collecting hidden packages after pissing off the Leone Family is fun! That's what I miss about GTA. Wish future games have gangs showing hostility towards you after triggering certain missions.
