Recommended Posts

I could get VCS and LCS for my PSP, and now i'm playing VCS (because i love VC xD). Is stranger to me play GTA out of PC (include consoles).


Some advices for this title? Is recommended start to do R3 missions before forward a lot in story missions?. In GTA 3, the paramedic missions could be impossibles if you did it after that Salvatore's missions.


Thanks in advance!

You should be fine if you don't have anyone sending hitsquads after you for taking over their businesses. That being said, stay away from the Sharks untill like endgame. They've got some really powerful weapons and unless you've played before or have a bunch of money, you're gonna have a bad time. If you do manage to prematurely piss them off, complete one of the empire lines and use the bulletproof vehicles you get as rewards for transport. I'd also recommend grinding M16s from the soldiers in the military base when you first start the game.

Until you're kicked out of the Army 3 Missions later and lose all your Weapons and Ammo...

 

This is only useful if you plan on doing a Starter Save (49.20% after Soldier) as you can use the M4's to burst those higher and harder to reach Red Balloons. However, there is also a Laser Scope Sniper Rifle on the roof of the Police Station near Ocean Beach on the East Island which can be useful, too.

 

Any of the R3 Missions are nothing compared to III's Paramedics. If you know the Map and don't flip the Ambulance, it's probably possible to get to Level 100 and still keep going. It's mindless in this game. The Ambulance gets so much Health as you progress through the Levels where it becomes practically indestructible....Until you store it in a Garage where it removes any extra Health.

 

As for Gang Attacks. When on a Mission, they are disabled...

Don't bother yourself with collecting special/unique vehicles like in other 3D era titles, 'cause cars disappear from the garages upon exiting/reloading your save.

There will also be a part in the game, when some gang always attacks your furthest empire, in every 5 minutes twice, making it nearly impossible, to freeroam even to mission locations.

Paramedic/Vigilante/Firefighter/etc. side missions have checkpoints after every 5 levels, so you can continue from there, after restarting the mission.

In Papi Don't Screech mission, after you picked Alberto up, go along the coast.

You can enter the Airtrain, if you manage to jump on it's wing, from a vehicle, but you can't exit it.

Don't use a Cholo Sabre as a getaway vehicle, if you need to take even the slightest turns. :D

 

These are, that I can think of now.

Start collecting vehicles and just check your current islands garages when loading a save or the nearest garage when starting a mission/passing a mission/purchasing a vehicle or entering an interior.

Grind m4 ammo as much as you want since there is a dupe that allows you to keep your weapons.

Now for the business types. Attack one of the business after the drugs are unlocked and build a high roller. Imeadetly save and close/reopen the game. Now just do the story like normal and in the end, make your high roller a small time business. It may seem like a waste of money but it prevents constant attacks while taking over every other business which will be the cheapest you can do too. after every business belongs to you, save and close vcs. After opening the game again, no attacks will take place and you can make every business a highroller.

Should I play VCS before VC? Does anything carry over between these games?

VCS takes place before VC so you get a bit of a better understanding of things happening in the story. I'd say go for it.

For not open another topic, i ask my question here, its about "R3" missions (taxi, police etc...). For taxi is get 5000$ in total, not in a chain of clients right? Others missions is get a level X in a chain (not accumulable).

 

I'm now in Vice City Beach, i need have 5 empires to continue main story, but i want do first secondary missions, for would more easy for me.

Taxi Mission isn't required to be completed in one go. And in VCS, Paramedic, Fire Fighter and Vigilante have a checkpoint for every 5 levels.
