Once you know the stands' locations, you take a fast car with a bazooka and enough ammo it's not so hard.

I think people still think it's hard because they havent played Espresso 2 Go since they were a little kid.Ā 

Ā 

Personally, and as the GTA Special Vehicle Collector, I do not find these missions hard. As a kid, missions like these were impossible. I think people still have that mindset from when they were younger, as that mission would be difficult for a six or nine year old.Ā 

Take the mission where you go to different payphones. People say that mission is hard. Play that mission now, you will pass with a few seconds to spare, but with minimal effort.Ā 

Ā 

Maybe back in the day, trying to find all the stalls was difficult. Some OG players like me, might still remember when the Cartel carried shotguns. This was later removed and the Cartel at the stalls were given UZI's to make the mission easier for players. To answer your question, unless you played the game WAYYY back in the day, these missions were not that hard. They took two attempts at most.

  1. If you are talking about your first try ever - it really was difficult. I guess most of the people failed it from the very first time which is normal since you see markers only when you enter a district which has stalls located in it. You learn more and more places with each failed try until you learn them all, the rest is just organization.

well back when game first came out, and played this mission for the first time, without a map and locations. It were hard back then. Now with walkthroughs, guides this mission in piece of cake.

Maybe the mission is more difficult today when automaps and other guiding assists like "gps" are taken for granted, and games usually hold the hand and the first, closest destination is the correct one. Back then a player often hand to explore and remember where objects of interest are in adventure games and sometimes take notes. The lack of a map in GTA III surprised me. I never really played it when I was a child, and gave up at some earlier racing mission. The driving part always gave me troubles in games.


Ā 

Here I used the Yakuza car for its forgiving handling and finished in the mafia land. I haven't played GTAIII in years and don't remember where the stands were exactly (other than to keep first island for the last), and that is the earliest I would consider a game worth replaying, when there is something to discover again.


Ā 

"Mods" that affect the difficulty or cheats is not a valid comment, because then you have basically created a new game or mission of your own and can't compare it to what other players have (without map).

It's all about knowing what to expect. The first time I played this mission I assumed all the stands were on Staunton.....only to realize I had to go to the other two islands as well with (what seemed like) such a small amount of time.

Ā 

But once you know the map and the stall locations, it's pretty simple. With the possible exception of Gripped!, I don't think any mission is particularly tricky in GTA3 after playing them enough times.

Didn't find it hard. First time I played the game with the cheats on, so it was simply a matter of using a bazooka.

Ā 

When I re-played the game without cheats, it was harder, but not hard unlike many other missions.

Once you know the map and locations, it's relatively straight forward.

NotĀ hard at all even without modsĀ - how it should be played.Ā šŸ˜‰

The game's release was 18 years ago - I'd suppose that by now players could easily accomplish Espresso-2-go without any issues or cheats.

Exactly.Ā 

18 years ago there were no guides or videos showing the drug stalls - thus it was much more difficult back then even with cheat mode activatedĀ - now it's fairly easy seeing how the youth is spoiled with all those walkthroughs and guides on the internet.

It's theĀ antepenultimateĀ mission in the game for a reason. You are given the entire game's duration to run around and memorize the city. If you did just that, all that's left is to drive around, since the SPANK stands are marked whenever you drive into their district. The harder part of the mission is to not get blown up by enemy gangs or Cartel gangsters, but even then you're given a bulletproof Patriot by completing the last mission for Ray. For me personally, this mission is easy; definitely easier than Bait which is very hard for me because of the terrible AI.

I don't find this mission hard at all. I guess the lack of map makes it a bit more difficult, but once you've done it the first time you pretty much get the hang of it. I always use Ray's bulletproof Patriot to complete this mission and to avoid getting shot to death in Saint Mark's. Other than that I basically drive all around Staunton Island to find most of the stands then I go to Portland to start the timer, the stands in Shoreside Vale are relatively close to each other so it's not that hard to find them.

It's hard as a kid/when you play it for the first time but once you figure out a route it's really nothing. I usually start on Staunton as essentially driving to the bottom and back up towards the bridge will allow you to hit all the stands, over the bridge hit the two in SSV then through the Porter tunnel, up the grassy hill behind St Marks then use the vehicle you're in to peek over the wall and destroy the stand then absolutely gun it off the cliff at the end of the street next to the train station to get the last one and avoid being shotgunned. Probably not the most efficient route but it works for me and you usually end up with a minute or a minute thirty left even if you're pretty lenient.

When I was a kid it was indeed difficult but then when your driving skills improve aswell as your map memory it's just a fun driving mission.
