Challenge - how long can you survive?

Recommended Posts

Tetramur

How long can you survive in the very beginning of the game, if you go in locked zones with airplane? I can survive 11 minutes and more, and in V-Rock, when I was afraid I could be wasted by Hydras and its rockets, I exited my plane (Shamal)... And what? Fallen from giant height, I was wasted! Wtf??

Quite a while actually, though things are slightly easier when you're in the air. Not only are you constantly moving, but you'll get the hang of dodging the SAM missiles and other attacks from pursuing Hydras. If you're shocked at dying from a great height, might I recommend you pick up a parachute from Los Santos which can be found at the top of the tallest building in Downtown. You won't be automatically equipped with a parachute until you complete the Learning To Fly mission strand much later in the game, so bear that in mind if you're looking for a spectacular exit should your plane be hit. Be sure to stock up on ammunition and guns and land in a less dense area. This increases the likelihood that other police vehicles will spawn, and if you act quickly you'll be able to snag an Enforcer which is essentially a cross between a bus and a police car. I advise this because entering an Enforcer will replenish your armour to 100%.

Actually you don't need to specifically complete Learning to Fly to get the parachute every time your camera is high enough, simply grinding your flying skill to about half (?) will be enough and can easily be done at the very beginning of the game

Next time, get the Parachute from the TALLEST Building in Los Santos. Viewed from theop on the map, it is circular.

There is a an Entry Marker at street level.

I know this, but I completely forgot it. Thank you for the info.

Well done. I appreciate the idea of your challenge, and strongly encourage you to continue your 4-star explorations, but there are too many variables to make any kind of comparison between players. And the challenge as stated lacks clarity; is this a new game-no save challenge or can 13.37% master saves with max stats and no missions completed be used? Must CJ remain in a Shamal or can he use an AT-400 which isn't pursued by Hydras or shot at by Police Mavericks? Is this a flying challenge? I prefer to be on the ground in restricted areas; it makes it much easier to maintain health and armor.

 

Fat and health levels may limit the adventure if CJ is stuck in a vehicle and can't eat. The next practical limit would probably be avoiding game crashes. It's not too difficult to survive indefinitely in restricted territory. It takes a bit of practice; I wouldn't call it easy. You basically need to change your mindset to hardcore mode and relearn how to play.

 

And even at the most basic level of the challenge, sometimes hydras won't respond. Or one spawns, crashes and isn't replaced. You just need to reload enough times until you get lucky. Still, I like the idea of the challenge, there are just too many variables to make a fair comparison.

 

I have had too many accidental deaths from small falls that trigger a free-fall when CJ is wearing a parachute. I never have one in inventory unless I'm planning on using it right away. CJ can survive a fall from any height if his health has been maxed out by paramedic level 12.

 

Enforcers can be hunted for their free armor. It's easier in open areas with no ped paths. Hang out in an open area near a road and slowly approach until you can convince the Enforcer to drive directly at CJ. Wait until the Enforcer slows to let the swat team out and then run away a little further; the Enforcer will follow. Pop the swat team as they come in range to avoid damage to the vehicle. Circle around for the driver and you should have a clean vehicle.

Okay. I should bring clarity, I think.

1) This is completely 0% game. No mission, no savehouses, no stats.

2) The player must be in the plane which trespassed the locked area all the time.

3) Yes, it is totally by flying.

But I think it would be better if after trespassing you had six stars, as in GTA 4, and not four.

I think conditions would be very severe in that case, and even with only four stars. But I'm trying to define my challenge completely.

I had a great luck, and first 8 minutes Hydras even didn't spawn.

To be honest, that challenge is pretty easy, at least what you've described so far. If I use Shamal, I can survive as long as I want, even at the very beginning of the game. Dodging the Hydras is very very easy with Shamal. They can actually hit you only if you really want them to.With Seasparrow it's really hard to avoid the missiles, but with Shamal it's a piece of cake. And even if it was 6 stars, it wouldn't make any difference - 6 stars make difference on ground, but in the air it's all the same with both 4 or 6 stars. Of course, there's always a chance I'll crash into a mountain or such thing, but it happens rarely. In general, I could survive flying arround in Shamal until CJ passes out from starving.
