Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas - Zero's Missions

Once you've completed the “Wear Flowers in Your Hair” mission in CJ's mission line, Zero will phone you; his landlord is reclaiming his electronics store in Garcia, Zero RC. If you purchase the lot, you can then accept a couple of missions from Zero. At $30,000, the place comes with a hefty price tag. These missions are completely optional though, so you can move through San Fierro without completing them.

Zero RC

Mission 1: Air Raid

Berkley, Zero's arch-nemesis, has deployed a flight of RC Barons and is dead-set on shutting down the transmitters on the roof of Zero RC. Using the gun emplacement, you are to shoot down the Barons before they destroy the transmitters. The meter in the top-right quarter of the screen represents the transmitters' joint signal strength. The meter will fall if a transmitter is destroyed, and if the meter empties completely, its mission failed. You must fight off the planes for two minutes with at least one of the transmitters still standing. It's best to attempt this mission during the day because it can be hard to spot the RC Barons in the night sky. Keep an eye on your radar for incoming planes, set the mini-gun in their path and fire away. It doesn't take much to bring one down, but as time goes by the planes will start coming in groups.


This mission can be a bit tough, but it's nothing compared to the mission that follows…

Mission 2: Supply Lines…

This is a difficult one, considered by many to be the toughest mission in the game. Luckily it's optional, so you can skip it if proves to be too much of a bother. Apparently the difficulty of this mission was toned down for the Greatest Hits version of San Andreas, so count yourself lucky if you're playing that one. Using the RC Baron, you must eliminate all five of Berkley's couriers before they complete their deliveries, or before the RC plane runs out of fuel. Three of the couriers are in vans, one is on a bicycle and the other is on a motorbike. The fuel meter in the top-right quarter of the screen will decrease as time goes by, so you must eliminate all of the couriers and return to the rooftop of Zero RC before it's depleted. Completing this mission will require practice, a bit of luck, and plenty of patience.

The key to success here is practice. You must be able to pilot the RC Baron, which may take a few runs through the mission. If you wish, ignore the couriers and instead practice controlling the Baron, putting particular emphasis on swooping down and perhaps targeting pedestrian vehicles with the plane's machine gun. Luckily, since your life is not in immediate danger during this mission, in the event of a mission failure you can simply step back into the red marker outside of Zero RC without having to travel back there.

RC Baron

Once you feel you have the controls down pat, attempt the mission with the intent of completing it. There are two couriers nearby at the start; one in a van and the other on a bicycle. While the absence of a target marker suggests no auto-aim, the machine gun seems to target the couriers as long as the RC Baron is facing towards them. Target the van first; swoop down and hit it with gunfire, this driver should get out once the van has been hit, allowing you to gun him down. Afterwards, swoop around and go for the courier on the bicycle. He is easy enough to take out; just swoop towards him and fire away.

That's two down, three to go. That leaves two vans and the motorbike. The order in which you go for the remaining targets is up to you, but be aware that you will have to actually destroy the other vans, as the drivers won't flee from them. The final three targets are particularly difficult to take down in that they will fire at the RC Baron, which cannot sustain very much damage at all. For this reason, when targeting one of the vans, avoid flying near the passenger's side. The machine gun can destroy the vans fairly easily, so fly off as soon as you spot the van on fire. The motorbike courier will shoot at you also, so fly high for the approach and swoop in for a quick kill. When all five of Berkley's couriers have been dealt with, make a beeline for the Zero RC building. Land on the red marker to complete the mission.

Red Marker

Mission 3: New Model Army

Help Zero's RC Bandit reach Berkley's encampment before the time runs out to complete this mission. You are controlling the RC Goblin helicopter; using the magnet attached to it, you'll have to move steel barrels out of Zero's path, place planks over gaps, and destroy Berkley's RC Tigers. Berkley's own RC Goblin will be drop steel barrels along the route to his encampment to impede the Bandit's progress, so scan the path ahead and clear the way as soon as possible. You'll have to return to Zero's base to fetch planks when the Bandit reaches a river. Just carry the plank over to the gap and drop it down. Don't fuss too much over the placement, as it will automatically set itself in place.


RC Goblin

Berkley has set up three RC Tiger tanks near his encampment that can damage Zero's Bandit. Drop the bomb in Zero's base onto one of the tanks; you'll have to drop steel barrels to destroy the other two. Zero has three RC Bandits in stock, so if one is destroyed he can send out another. However try your hardest to clear out the three RC Tigers before they can destroy Zero's initial Bandit, otherwise you will have to follow the new Bandit along the entire path again. The mission is complete once the Bandit reaches Berkley's camp.

What I mean is that by saving time is that you can do the tasks before you are told to, example first time when mission starts just carry a bomb and drop on a tank, go back, help Zero picking up barrel out of his way and drop it somewhere else on the way of picking up another bomb and drop on another tank, then go back and get a plank and drop it for Zero to cross the river, etc. Overall the missions are easy (first and third, second is really hard and requires a HUGE amount of luck to succeed) but I don't understand how many people fail on them, they are not too hard (except second mission). I did however found few missions in this game to be pretty challenging/hard and I can understand why. I'm playing PC version 2.00 by the way.

Added 15th Apr 2014, ID #375149

I haven't found the missions too difficult, I mean the first one (Air Raid) was easy as I did it in first try. HOWEVER, once the mission is completed (assuming you had a rocket launcher or flamethrower in inventory), go immediately and SAVE THE GAME! There is a glitch that makes icon disappear and if you attempt to shoot the glitched rocket launcher, the game crashes! Mine happened but after I saved game, so when I reloaded, rocket launcher worked fine. That was because game replaced your weapon with Minigun in the mission but not entirely.
For second mission, it is hard as I did in 4th or 5th try but just keep practicing, eventually you will make it if you can fly plane and try to take the targets carefully, watch out for the machinegunners!
Third mission was also easy but I did in second try, if it weren't first time for running out of time as the bandit almost made it! For this mission, make sure to pick up bombs and bomb the tanks and also move barrels out of way, you can save time

to win the both race you activate cheat "chitychitybangbang" and drive your car as slow as possible because this cheat is for flying the cars once you race the speed you will also fly but better not to do that the other cars will fly and you can go slow n easily win the race.

Use ANOSEONGLASS cheat in supply lines mission and QWES keys only for flying. Do not use mouse for flying it will mess the plane accuracy to fly straight.

Added 7th Aug 2012, ID #173348

Just fly ur plane and land exactly at the back of courier. It moves so slow that u can fire at it even ure not moving. Just keep firing using lctrl as it is difficult to use both mouse n keyboard.

Added 18th Jul 2011, ID #58880

In wuzi mission, dont go toi fast, Just slow and steady. Or use the cheat That mâle cars bubble away. Then hit the other cars

Added 5th Jun 2015, ID #566016

The liquor shop one is tricky as you are riding the quad bike, but just don't go too fast and try to keep it steady (not too much left\right aka steering), the key is tiny adjustments as you steer. Might take a few attempts, but if you can keep them reasonably close they will all eventually stop and get off the quads, so if you havent managed to shoot them all, here you can just jump off and blast them.
As for the wuzu race, just take it steady, it all about control and keeping to the path, so just practice it a couple of time to get to know the route. you need to keep ahead fo the pack, but dont go speeding off like in most races, just enough throttle to keep ahead, more about control. Also not too long into the mission there is a double hairpin bend in the shape of an S, at one of the hairpin bends you can see strait through to the next bit of track, just drive over the grass and straiten yourself back out, this will get you 1st place, then you only have to stay there. Dont try c
