Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Guide [PlayStation 2 and Xbox Versions]
Version 2.0 [Revision 1] (August 2005)

Email: rarusk[gnat]netzero[snot]com
       (Note: the [gnat] replaces the "@" symbol in this guide. It is to 
              thwart spambots looking for email addresses to send spam to. 
              Simply replace [gnat] with "@" when responding. I chose [gnat] 
              because it rhymes with "at" and is easy to remember. Same goes 
              for "." - [snot].)

This guide may only be distributed and/or posted in it's original format. If 
you wish to post or use excerpts from this guide, PLEASE ask for my 
permission before doing so (especially if you work for a magazine or 
website). A lot of time and effort was spent putting this thing together and
that should be taken into consideration. And remember.....

"Respect is everything."

Besides, contacting me will also give me an opportunity to hook up and talk 
shop with fellow San Andreas "thuggers".....

It has been about six months since releasing Version 1. This is the first
revision since that time. This version corrects a lot of the spelling and
grammar errors that was in the previous version. I did not proofread Version
1 properly because I was getting burned out on San Andreas and I wanted the
damn guide out the door.

This version also includes new Xbox related information. I got the Xbox
version with a $50 Best Buy gift card I won from GamerHelp.com because my San
Andreas guide (despite all of the errors) won best guide for April.

Then there is also the matter of "Hot Coffee". Man, what a mess. Now Rockstar
has to pull all of the Original versions and replace them with "Caffeine
Free" versions. My main beef is that, if what happened with Vice City is
anything to go on, the game saves from the "Hot Coffee" version will not work
with the new "Caffeine Free" version. Just another headache for me.....

My name is Robert Allen Rusk and I am a 38-year old hardcore gamer with about 
30 years of gaming experience. I am an ex-gametester (Broderbund Software, 
LucasArts Games, Point Of View Computing) and an ex-arcade attendant (Namco 
Cyberstation - Pier 39, San Francisco, CA).

I also own multiple systems such as the Sega Dreamcast, Super Nintendo,
Nintendo 64, Atari Jaguar, PlayStation 1, Xbox, and, of course, the PS2. 

I currently work at JCPenneys at one of the malls here in San Antonio, TX. 
Retail isn't the best job in the world but JCPenneys is a very stable company
unlike some of the other places I have worked for in the past like internet
service providers or web programming companies.

I am also a member of the X-Otic Computer Systems of San Antonio
(www.xcssa.org), a group who specializes in Linux, Mac, and other systems. It 
is here that you can see some of my RGB hack work in the photos section.

This guide was written using BBEdit Lite 6.1 and a Power Mac Workgroup Server
8550/200 (with a G3 card running at 330 MHz). I view my work in Netscape
4.7.9, Netscape 7, and Internet Explorer 5.1.5 to help in seeing how it would
look on the web and correcting format errors.

I also played San Andreas (Xbox) on my NEC MultiSync 3D RGB monitor using a
homebrew RGB box that contains a EL1883 sync separation chip which is
MacroVision compatible. This allows me to watch my movies, like "The Matrix",
in RGB Analog without the MacroVision copy protection signal getting in the
way. MacroVision screws up the sync signal and the EL1883 is the only sync
chip that can ignore it.

Recently I removed my Sony CXA-1145 RGB amplification chip from my RGB box
because it would oversaturate the red and blues when I put on the Thermal
Goggles in "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas". You know, as many revisions as
that box has gone through I'm surprised it still works.

When I do my writing and guide revisions I run my Mac (on one monitor)
alongside the Xbox (on my MultiSync 3D monitor). This way I can
simultaneously play and make changes to the guide at the same time.

When I want to watch my movies in RGB Analog, I use my PlayStation 2 with an
my MultiSync 3D monitor. I recently hacked my (Version 3) PlayStation 2 to
access the RGB video and sync channels directly from the motherboard (you can
find the topic threads of my hack work in the GamesX.com RGB forum) so I
would no longer need a sync chip and a GameShark to watch DVDs in RGB video.
Watching my movies (and TV shows) in pristine RGB Analog is great. "The Lord
of the Rings: The Two Towers" (Extended Version) looks fantastic in
RGB. So does my Godzilla movies, "Red vs. Blue", "The Matrix", "Red Dwarf",
etc.....

I intend to acquire one of the new Slim PS2s and do the same hack so I can
take full advantage of DVD Progressive Scan playback. The version 3 PS2 can
then be used for hard drive experimentation (as soon as I have all of the
necessary pieces).

The sound is hooked up to an old stereo box I got from Radio Shack when I
acquired my first Amiga 500 about 13 years ago and it has served me well
despite it's age.

At the time of this revision I have 17 memory cards for my PlayStation 2. I
have recently reorganized the game saves on my memory cards and I now have
eleven black memory cards specifically dedicated to GTA3 and Vice City
(Original Version (1.40)) and San Andreas. In addition to the black memory
cards I also have six colored memory cards that I use for other games but
there are San Andreas game saves on five of them making it a total of 16
memory cards for San Andreas.

I also have four memory cards for the Xbox which I used to archive my game
saves for San Andreas.

I have also done 100% Completion once on both the PS2 and Xbox versions. I
imagine I would have to do the same to the new Caffeine-Free versions later
to catalog any changes between those and the Original versions.

Welcome to my Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas guide! If this is the first time
you have visited, you will find a lot of useful information in a highly
organized format that you can use to beat all of the missions here in San
Andreas.

Quotes taken from readers' e-mail are presented "as is" and may include
spelling and grammatical errors.

When I first posted my initial version of my Vice City guide in 2003, I did
not know how well it would go over and how many people would respond. I
wasn't exactly swamped with e-mail but I do get letters from time to time.
Sometimes people would ask for advice and others would say how cool the guide
is. All it takes is for one person to say how good and useful your guide is
to make it all worthwhile.

I want to thank GameFAQs for creating a place where such documents can be
hosted for the benefit of all gamers. I also want to thank IGN.com,
NeoSeeker.com, TheVGNation.com, GameHelper.com, and many other sites for
their generosity in hosting my other work on their sites.

I want to thank Brady Games for their excellent guide (despite the errors in
the PS2 version of their book). Their guide has served as an encyclopedia
that I have used to speed my playing through and to read during lunch as I
tried to figure out how my own guide was going to look as I was building the
Beta versions.

I also want to thank everybody who has taken the time to download and 
read this guide. I love this game and I wanted to share my creative ideas 
with fellow San Andreas "thuggers".

And, of course, I want to give a special thanks to all those who have taken 
the time to write to me and tell me what you thought, make suggestions, and 
ask questions.

With that said, let's get down to business shall we?.....

The main emphasis of this guide is to provide creative and simple solutions 
to many of the missions of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

In the previous version I was using my own numbering system for the Tags /
Oyster / Photo-Op / Horseshoe listings instead of the one used in the Brady
Guide. This was because of the all the errors found within the guide when it
was released for the PlayStation 2.

However, when the Xbox and PC versions of the game came out, Brady Games
revised their guide and re-released it to coincide with the new versions.
After looking through their revised maps (especially their weapon placement
maps) I decided to go back to using their numbering system.

I have worked hard to make sure that this guide is as complete as possible 
but at the same time leave room for exploration. I hope that you enjoy this
guide as much as learn from it.

This guide is designed to help you achieve 100% Completion within San
Andreas. Stuff that doesn't directly contribute to it won't be covered in the
guide. This is mainly to keep things managable. Stuff that won't be covered
are Girlfriends (although Gifts are listed in the Weapons and Other Items
sections), basketball playing, and (surprisingly enough) Unique Stunt Jumps.

Because of the large size of San Andreas each major section of the guide
(Section B, Section C, and Section D) will have their own Weapon and
Safehouse lists.

Another emphasis of this guide is ORDER. If you do the missions and tasks in 
a certain order, the game will be easier and more fun for you. You don't
absolutely have to do them in the EXACT order I have them listed but as
you read the guide you will see how it benefitted me.

The Graffiti Tags and Oysters are also used as landmarks to help in directing
you around the city for some of your objectives. Also, each Graffiti Tag,
Oyster, Photo-Op, and Horseshoe has a letter designation to make them easier
to identify in this guide.....

  Graffiti Tags (Los Santos) will be identified with an "T".
    Examples: Graffiti Tag T21. 
              Tag T32.
              T65.

  Oysters (San Andreas) will be identified with an "Y".
    Examples: Oyster Y34.
              Y16.

  Photo-Ops (San Fierro) will be identified with a "P".
    Examples: Photo-Op P27.
              P48.

  Horseshoes (Las Venturas) will be identified with a "H".
    Examples: Horseshoe H18.
              H37.

What can I say? Rockstar has done it again. They have completely blown my
expectations out of the water with San Andreas. San Andreas is much, much
larger than GTA3 and Vice City combined with many more things to do whether
you want to get 100% Completion or not.

There are even more vehicles to play with including earthmovers, tractors,
biplanes, jets, street sweepers, and even trains.

The one major criticism I have for this game is that they seem to have given
us too much of a good thing. Of course, there are a lot of companies that
would love to have that kind of criticism.

Although the manual covers the setup pretty good, I felt that I should 
include a section on controls for those who have gotten used copies of San
Andreas that have no manuals.

Below are the controls for the PS2 and Xbox versions.

[1] - There is no First Person Look Around this time. This Camera Control 
      follows the current Third Person control found in most Third Person 
      games these days.

[2] - If you hold down the Run button too long, you will tire and have to 
      rest before you can run again. Tapping the button in rhythm will serve 
      to help you run a little longer. The more times you run, the better 
      your stamina will be.

[3] - When near a wall you press the button to grab the wall and press the 
      button again to climb the wall. When fighting hand-to-hand you press 
      the button to block their physical attacks.

[4] - When holding a melee weapon (like a bat) or using your fist, the Attack 
      Button is used to swing at your target. 

      When using Grenades or Tear Gas, the same button is used to throw your 
      weapon at the target. The longer you hold, the farther you throw. 

      When holding a gun (like a Silenced Pistol) or a heavy weapon (like a 
      Rocket Launcher), you use the Attack Button to shoot. Use the Target 
      Button in conjunction to aim at your enemy. 

      When used with a Camera, the Attack Button is used to take pictures.

[5] - When outside of a vehicle you can see how your Stats are shaping up. 
      When targeting with a weapon this also becomes a handy fire button 
      depending on your particular comfort level. This button is also used to 
      buy property when you approach a Property Icon.

[6] - You can improve your ability to target and move at the same time by 
      upgrading Weapon Skills.

[7] - This is used in conjunction with the Target Button to recruit gang 
      members.

[8] - This is used to keep your gang from following you. It can also be used 
      to disband your group.

[9] - When talking to people you use this to give a positve response to their 
      queries.

[10] - When talking to people you use this to give a negative response to 
       their queries.

[1] - You use this to control the main Camera inside and outside of vehicles. 
      When in certain vehicles, like the Firetruck, you use this to aim the 
      turret. You also use this to control the camera when in Cinematic 
      Camera Mode.

[2] - You use this in conjunction with the Look Left and Look Right Buttons 
      to attack from either side of the car.

      On a motorcycle you can press this button by itself to fire forward.

      When not doing a Drive-By this will also activate the Nitros on any 
      Nitros installed vehicle.

[3] - When using the User Track Station (custom soundtrack feature) you use 
      the following commands to control your music:

      Hold Directional Pad Left to go to previous track.
      Hold Directional Pad Right to go to next track.
      Hold Directional Pad Up to change to previous user soundtrack.
      Hold Directional Pad Down to change to next user soundtrack.

[4] - According to Allan Curtis, when you fail a mission and start it again 
      you may get the Trip Skip icon. When you press it you will 
      automatically go to the mission location instead of having to drive to 
      it again. However, this only occurs on certain missions like "Badlands" 
      (C.R.A.S.H.) where you have to drive a considerable distance to get to 
      your destination.

with the standard Xbox controller it is HIGHLY recommended that you use
either a third party controller that has extra White and Black shoulder
buttons or a PS2-to-Xbox controller adapter (which will map the White and
Black buttons to L1 and R1 respectively). I used a PS2-to-Xbox controller
adapter while playing through the Xbox version.

Now that the Xbox version is released, what are some of the differences
between that and the PS2 version? Which one is better (from a technical
standpoint)? Here's the breakdown:

0==========0
| Graphics |
0==========0

  The graphics on the Xbox version aren't that radically better than the PS2 
  version but animates more smoothly than on the Xbox version of Vice City. 
  This is probably due to the new engine for San Andreas. In addition the 
  Xbox version has greater draw distance and is much brighter than the PS2 
  version. Oh, and let's not forget Progressive Scan for the Xbox version.

  Advantage: Xbox

0=======0
| Sound |
0=======0

  The sound quality is about the same between the PS2 and Xbox versions of 
  San Andreas. The Xbox version gets a slight edge due to it's custom 
  soundtrack feature.

  Advantage: Xbox

0==========0
| Controls |
0==========0

  This is where the Xbox version is clearly inferior to the PS2 version. The 
  use of the White and Black buttons for flying and drive-bys makes some 
  missions more difficult than on it's PS2 counterpart. Rockstar had to make 
  do with what was given to them but the ambitiousness of San Andreas had to 
  have made it difficult for them to come up with a proper control scheme. 
  When one has to recommend a third party controller or a controller adapter 
  to properly play San Andreas, you know things aren't quite right.

  Advantage: PlayStation 2

PlayStation 2
*************
  The PS2 version runs fairly well though it tends to chug in a few spots on 
  the map (an intersection in Ocean Docks is one example). Sudden pop-ins are 
  a bit of a problem especially when flying fast aircraft (like smacking into 
  a tree you can't see because it has not loaded yet). Texture loading is 
  pretty smooth but not as fast when using aircraft (within cities).

Xbox
****
  The Xbox version also runs fairly smooth though it tends to chug when you
  fly through clouds. There aren't as much sudden pop-ins but texture 
  loading is much slower (you can outrun the texture loading (in a city) when 
  using a fast motorcycle). It is unclear whether the Thompson drives (which 
  did not like my GTA3 and Vice City games thus forcing me to trade in my 
  initial Xbox) would properly load up San Andreas.

| Xbox Version Differences |
0==========================0

At this time there is just one difference between the Xbox and PS2 version:
 
>>Shady Industries in San Fierro is now called Solaris Industries.

One of the major things that has been added to the GTA series is something
called Stats. Stats adds an RPG element to your character and there are many
things that you can change to make your character better (or worse).

Most of the upgrades to your Stats are permanent although some can change one
way or the other depending on certain physical activities.

| A.10. Eating and Food                                                     |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Another thing you will need to do during the course of the game is to eat. If
you go too long without eating you will get hungry and start to lose energy.
However, you lose energy very slowly so even if you are out in the middle of
nowhere you can easily go and get food without starving to death. And you
don't even have to eat a lot either. A simple snack will do to keep from
going hungry.

Eating is the only way to get your Health back up to it's current maximum.
There are very few Health Icons this time unlike in GTA3 and Vice City.

If you wish to make CJ muscular you will need to eat large amounts of large
meals to get Fat so you can go to the Gym to convert it into Muscle. Eat too
many meals in one day however (about 11), and he will throw up.

You can also eat meals that can keep you from going hungry but without adding
to your Fat. A Salad Meal at any of the fast food places will do the trick.

There are three types of fast food restaurants in San Andreas. The
restaurants listed below are opened during and after "Ryder" (Carl
Johnson). Each place has a Map Icon for easy location:

0=====================================================0
| The Well Stacked Pizza Co. (Map Icon - Pizza Slice) |
0=====================================================0

  --Idlewood (Los Santos). Southwest of Ganton and where you do the mission 
    "Ryder" (Carl Johnson).
  --Montgomery (Red County). East side of the town. NOTE: No icon on map.
  --Palomino Creek (Red County). South side of town not far from the 
    Ammu-Nation.
  --Esplande North (San Fierro). At the entrance to Pier 69.
  --Downtown (San Fierro). Northeast of the Big Pointy Building.
  --In the north part of Roca Escalante (Las Venturas).
  --At the mall in Creek (Las Venturas).
  --Inside the Chinese Strip Mall at Starfish Casino (Las Venturas).
  --At the mini-mall in south Emerald Isle (Las Venturas).

0========================================0
| Cluckin Bell (Map Icon - Chicken Head) |
0========================================0

  --Willowfield (Los Santos). West of the Willowfield Safehouse.
  --East Los Santos (Los Santos). North of CJ's house.
  --Market (Los Santos). South of the Film Studio. Note: no icon on map (PS2 
    version) but there is one for it on the Xbox version).
  --Angel Pine (Badlands).
  --Queens (San Fierro). South of City Hall.
  --Downtown (San Fierro). Just west of Garver Bridge.
  --In Tierra Robada northwest of Las Barrancas (Desert).
  --Northeast part of Fort Carson in Bone County (Desert).
  --At the mall in Creek (Las Venturas).
  --Inside the Chinese Strip Mall at Starfish Casino (Las Venturas).
  --At the south part of Old Venturas Strip (Las Venturas).
  --At the mini-mall in south Emerald Isle (Las Venturas).

0====================================0
| Burger Shot (Map Icon - Hamburger) |
0====================================0

  --Mulholland (Los Santos). West of the East Mulholland 24-7.
  --Marina (Los Santos). West of the Verona Beach Safehouse.
  --Juniper Hollow (San Fierro). Near the Pay N' Spray.
  --Financial (San Fierro). Just west of the Zip store.
  --Garcia (San Fierro). West of the San Fierro Gym.
  --In the north part of Spinybed (Las Venturas).
  --At the southeast part of Old Venturas Strip (Las Venturas).
  --Next to the Cluckin' Bell at the south part of Old Venturas Strip (Las 
    Venturas).
  --At Redsands East (Las Venturas).
  --At Whitewood Estates (Las Venturas).

There are four meals you can choose from in each place:

  >>Small Meal (adds a little bit of Fat)
  >>Medium Meal (adds a little more Fat than the Small Meal)
  >>Large meal (has the most Fat)
  >>Salad meal (has no Fat)

There are also Snack and Sprunk Machines spread throughout San Andreas that
you can use to keep from going hungry. They are open from the beginning of
the game and their locations will be listed in each major section of the
guide.

You can get fat from using these machines but it will take awhile to build up
a sizable Fat Stat this way.

Two of the Stats that will change most often is the Fat and Muscle Stats. If
you eat a lot of meals and don't do any physical activities you will get
pudgy. This will negatively impact your ability to run and jump plus people
will make unflattering comments about you.

In addition, the stuff CJ says will change. For example, he will say things
like "Lunch money", "This should help keep my belly full", and "I'm gonna
spend this on a good meal" when he picks up money. If you get a 100% Fat Stat
CJ will be obese.

You can change this by doing physical activities like bicycling or working
out at the local Gym. When working out at the Gym you can change the Fat into
Muscle. If you work out at the Gym long enough you can make CJ really buffed
and ripped. But this too will negatively impact your ability to run and jump
but people will look more positively upon you (especially the ladies).

You can burn off the Fat without building Muscle. You can do things like
swimming and bicycling to do this. Once you burn off the Fat, however, you
will then start burning off the Muscle until CJ is skinny again. If you want
to keep CJ with some degree of muscular build you will have to balance eating
and working out.

There are four Gyms you can use to work out CJ:

  --Santa Maria Beach (Los Santos). This is open from the beginning of the 
    game and, with the use of the Snack and Sprunk Machines, you can gain a 
    lot of muscle before doing any of the Main Story Missions. Note: There is 
    no Gym Icon for this one on the Map.

  --Ganton (Los Santos). This is opened after doing "Drive Thru" (Sweet 
    Johnson).

  --Garcia (San Fierro). This is opened after doing "Drive Thru" (Sweet 
    Johnson) but you won't be able to access it until after doing "The Green 
    Sabre" (Sweet Johnson).

  --Redsands East (Las Venturas). This is opened after doing "Drive Thru" 
    (Sweet Johnson) but you won't be able to access it until after doing "Ya 
    Ka Boom Boom" (Loco Syndicate).
 
When you enter the Gym there are several activities you can do:

>>Stationary Bike
  ***************
     You use this to increase your Stamina. There are ten levels you can 
     select to help you get the most from using the bike.

>>Treadmill
  *********
     You use this to increase your Stamina. There are ten levels you can 
     select. The higher you go, the faster CJ has to run to keep up otherwise 
     he will fall off the Treadmill.

>>Bench Press
  ***********
     You use this to gain Muscle. Select the weight you want to try and tap X 
     and Circle (PS2) or A and B (Xbox) alternatively and quickly to make CJ 
     do reps.

>>Dumbbells
  *********
     You use this to gain Muscle. Select the weight you want to try and tap X 
     and Circle (PS2) or A and B (Xbox) alternatively and quickly to make CJ 
     do reps.

You can also learn new fighting moves here from the Boxing Trainer (There is
no Boxing Trainer for the Santa Maria Beach Gym). It is also a requirement
for 100% Completion.

I will go into more detail about doing that in section B.II.3. Using Gyms

You will also need to learn Martial Arts moves at the San Fierro Gym and
Kickboxing moves at the Las Venturas Gym to get 100% Completion.

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Three other physical Stats that can be changed (but will be permanent) is the
Stamina, Lung Capacity, and Health Stats.

Increasing your Stamina will allow you to sprint longer on foot, in the
water, and on bike. There is no Infinite Run feature this time so it would be
wise to increase your Stamina as soon as possible. Fortunately, increasing
your Stamina doesn't take a whole lot of time so you can do things, like
looking for Oysters, to increase your Stamina prior to doing the Main Story
Missions without it taking forever.

Increasing your Lung Capacity will allow you to stay underwater for long
periods of time. This is very helpful for acquiring Oysters and exploration.
Swimming underwater a lot will gradually increase your Lung Capacity Stat.

Over the course of doing physical activities you may also see your Health
Stat increase. This increases your maximum health and you will see the Health
Bar lengthen slightly. This takes a bit longer to maximize than the Stamina
Stat but you can do this quickly by completing the Ambulance Mission since
you can max out your Health Stat by successfully finishing it.

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

"Respect is everything" went the tagline for GTA2. And it is back again for
San Andreas. Having respect will allow you to easily recruit gang members for
various activities, getting Girlfriends, and will impact how people look at
you.

Things that change your Respect are as follows:

  --Getting better clothes.
  --Killing cops and rival gang members.
  --Progressing through the Main Story Missions.
  --Doing certain Side-Missions.

 /=========================================================================\
0===========================================================================0

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

In San Andreas you can change clothes to change how you look in the game just
like in Vice City. Unlike Vice City, however, you can change your appearance
in more ways than you can imagine. You can change shirts, pants, wear
necklaces, change shoes, wear hats, etc.

For those who want to go topless (if you have muscles you want to show off),
go into your closet and use Remove Item to take off shirts and jackets. You
can also use this method to make CJ go (almost) completely naked if desired.

Getting better clothes is one way to increase your Respect (as explained
above) and increases your chances of getting a Girlfriend (if you wish to
pursue one). And, like in Vice City, you can also change clothes to get rid
of Wanted Ratings.

In San Andreas, there are many places where you can get new clothes once you
have opened up the stores. Each store is represented by a shirt icon on your
map:

0=======0
| Binco |
0=======0

Opened: After "Nines and AK's" (Sweet Johnson).
Motto: "More trash for less cash."
Notes: A budget clothes shop that looks like a thrift store more than 
       anything else. But you can get some decent clothes here, just not very 
       stylish clothes. This is where you can get green clothes for 
       representing Grove Street.
Locations: --Ganton (Los Santos). West of CJ's house and north of the Los 
             Santos Gym.
           --Juniper Hill (San Fierro). Just south of the Juniper Hollow 
             Burger Shot.
           --The Emerald Isle (Las Venturas). At the mini-mall south of the 
             main hotel.
           --Las Venturas Airport (Las Venturas). Just north of the main 
             terminal.

0=========0
| ProLaps |
0=========0

Opened: After "Nines and AK's" (Sweet Johnson).
Motto: "Train Hard."
Notes: A sports clothes shop where you can get anything from expensive 
       sneakers to team jerseys. A lot of gangbangers like to wear sports 
       related stuff. You can gain additional respect with certain items 
       here.
Locations: --Rodeo (Los Santos). Located just north of Victim and west of the 
             Los Sepulcros Cemetary where CJ's mother is buried at.
           --Creek (Las Venturas). At the large mall.

0==========0
| SubUrban |
0==========0

Opened: After "Nines and AK's" (Sweet Johnson).
Motto: "...come to where it's apparently at."
Notes: A trendy hip-hop clothes shop. Most of the clothes are based on what 
       the hot music acts are wearing. Additional respect can be gained by 
       use of some of the items here.
Locations: --Glen Park (Los Santos). Just north of the Jefferson Safehouse.
           --Hashbury (San Fierro). Right next to the Tattoo Parlor.
           --Creek (Las Venturas). At the large mall.

0=====0
| Zip |
0=====0

Opened: After "Are You Going To San Fierro?" (The Truth).
Motto: "Clothing to get your teeth into."
Notes: A mid-range clothes shop. Better than Binco but not as good as the 
       others.
Locations: --Downtown Los Santos. Southwest of the Mulholland Intersection.
           --Financial (San Fierro). East of the Financial Burger Shot.
           --Starfish Casino (Las Venturas). Inside the Chinese Strip Mall.
           --The Emerald Isle (Las Venturas). At the mini-mall south of the 
             main hotel.

0========0
| Victim |
0========0

Opened: After "Learning To Fly" (Completion of Flight School).
Motto: "To die for."
Notes: A high class and expensive clothes shop. Clothes based on the rich 
       fashion styles can be bought here. A lot of respect can be bought here 
       too.
Locations: --Rodeo (Los Santos). Located in the west part of Rodeo just 
             southwest of ProLaps.
           --Downtown (San Fierro) . East of the Downtown Well Stacked Pizza.
           --Creek (Las Venturas). At the large mall.

0==============0
| Didier Sachs |
0==============0

Opened: After "Saint Mark's Bistro" (Caligula's Palace).
Motto: "For those with discriminating taste."
Notes: A high class and expensive clothes shop. The best of everything can be 
       bought here. You can gain the most respect by shopping here. Of 
       course, you'll also spend the most money but prestige doesn't come 
       cheap.
Locations: --Rodeo (Los Santos). Located in the west part of Rodeo next door 
             to the Victim Clothes Store.

| BarberShops |
0=============0

You can also change hairstyles too. You open up the BarberShops when you do
"Ryder" (Carl Johnson). There a quite a few hairstyles you can choose from
but you can probably get the best results (in terms of increasing your
Respect) from getting the most expensive style. They are represented by a
scissors icon on your map.

Listed below are the BarberShops within San Andreas:

  --Idlewood (Los Santos). Just across the street from The Well Stacked 
    Pizza. This is where you do the mission "Ryder" (Carl Johnson).
  --Playa Del Seville (Los Santos). South of the apartment complexes and near 
    the large curve of the main freeway.
  --Marina (Los Santos). North of the Marina Burger Shot.
  --Dillimore (Red County). In the north part of the little town.
  --Queens (San Fierro). North of the Queens Ammu-Nation.
  --El Quebrados (Desert). Not far from the El Quebrados Pay N' Spray.
  --Redsands East (Las Venturas). Southeast of the Redsands East Pay N' 
    Spray.

0================0
| Tattoo Parlors |
0================0

Another way to change appearance is to get tattooed (no, not that kind of
tattooed although I don't think you can get drunk or stoned in this game).
No, I mean as in ink. Usually the more expensive and elaborate tattoos will
be the ones that will increase your Respect the most. These shops open after
doing "Ryder" (Carl Johnson). They are represented by a "T" (Olde English
Font) on your map.

Listed below are the Tattoo Parlors within San Andreas:

  --Idlewood (Los Santos). Next door to the Idlewood BarberShop and across 
    the street from The Well Stacked Pizza.
  --El Corona (Los Santos). East of the pink and green Nude Shop.
  --Hashbury (San Fierro). Right next to the SubUrban Clothes Store.
  --Redsands East (Las Venturas). Southeast of the Redsands East Pay N' Spray 
    and east of the Gay Gordos BarberShop.

0============0
| Sex Appeal |
0============0

Changing your appearance will not only increase (or decrease) your Respect
but will also change your Sex Appeal. The higher your Sex Appeal, the greater
your chances of getting a Girlfriend (if you want one) or having "coffee"
when you do have one.

You can also change your Sex Appeal by getting into a better car as well. A
good, solid, pimped-out car will really jack up your Sex Appeal (along with
good appearance).

| A.16. Weapon Skill and Easy Upgrading                                     |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Another thing that needs to be mentioned is Weapon Skill. Some of the weapons
you can use during the game have skills that can be upgraded.

When you first pick up a upgradable weapon it doesn't feel all that special.
But when you reach Gangster Weapon Skill Level with it, you will see an
improvement like being able to move while aiming and shooting plus longer
range. When you reach Hitman Weapon Skill Level you will have reached the
weapon's maximum skill. When Hitman Weapon Skill Level is reached on certain
weapons you can then duel-wield them, one to a hand, allowing you to inflict
a lot more damage.

You can find out how far you have upgraded a weapon by pressing the L1 button
(PS2) or Left Trigger (Xbox) to see your stats. You can also go into the
Stats menu to see the specific point level of your current weapon. The
upgradable weapons have three rankings: Poor, Gangster, and Hitman. Each
weapon has a maximum skill point level of 1,000. When you reach 1,000 skill
points on a weapon you will achieve Hitman Level. You can generally reach
Gangster Level at about 200 skill points.

The fastest and easiest way to upgrade your Weapon Skill Levels is to do the
following:

0===============0
| PlayStation 2 |
0===============0

First, get a lot of ammo for the weapon you wish to upgrade. Next, grab a car
and head for either the large flood control channel or deep into the
wilderness. Get out of your car and switch to the weapon you wish to upgrade.
Next, aim at one of the car's tires and plug away. The tire counts as a
target and you can't destroy the car by just shooting at the tire itself.
This works wonders plus you don't get hassled by either rival gang members or
the cops. I recommend upgrading the SubMachine Gun class first since that is
probably the type of gun you'll end up using the most. It won't take long
either.

0======0
| Xbox |
0======0

The above method for the PlayStation 2 won't work for the Xbox version so we
need another method. Get a car and place it into a garage. Shoot the car
until it starts flaming and then run away from the garage. The garage door
will then close. Wait a few seconds and when you run back to get the garage
door to reopen, you car will be as good as new. Repeat the process until you
have achieved Hitman Weapon Skill Level on your chosen weapon.

The main enemies in "Grand Theft Auto 3" and "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City"
are the Police. They were fairly aggressive but stupid and predictable. They
were also fun to mess around with like playing demolition derby with them at
the 4-Star Wanted Rating.

In San Andreas, however, that's all changed. Here the cops are FAR more
aggressive and intelligent. Even at the lowest wanted level they will take
cover, block your physical attacks, and even shoot at you. In other words,
playtime's over. Now things get serious when dealing with the law.

They even have more vehicles (details a little later) including Motorcycle
Cops who will shoot at your car to try to slow you down if they are chasing
you.

When you do something bad near a cop, like mugging a person, one of the stars 
at the bottom of the HUD will light up indicating a Wanted Level. The cops
will then try to bust you. The more stars you have, the more aggressive they
will be. There are several ways to get rid of a wanted rating.....

X=========================================================================X
| Hiding out somewhere for a bit (depending on what you've done, this     |
| will work for up to 4-Stars).                                           |

X=========================================================================X

There are six wanted levels. The higher you go, the more aggressive the
pursuit. Below are the six Wanted Ratings and what you can expect.....

0========0
| 1-Star |
0========0

  You are of mild interest to the cops. They will chase you on foot and will 
  whack you with their nightsticks when close enough. They will chase you for 
  some distance on foot unless you get a car and make a fast getaway. If you 
  attack a cop with your Fist or Melee Weapon a nearby cop may shoot at you. 
  When fleeing in a car, Motorcycle Cops may shoot at you to try to get you 
  to stop. Hiding out somewhere for awhile will get rid of a 1-Star rating 
  but may take awhile depending on what you've done.

0========0
| 2-Star |
0========0

  Things get a bit more serious here. The number of cops increase a bit and 
  they will start shooting you instead of whacking you with their clubs. 
  Motorcycle Cops will shoot at your car to try to stop you. You may be able 
  to wait things out in a safe area but this may take a long time depending 
  on your crimes.

0========0
| 3-Star |
0========0

  More cops will join the fray and a helicopter will start pursuing you and 
  will shoot at you if you stand still long enough for it to do so. The cops 
  become more fearless and will stand in the open shooting at you in an 
  attempt to stop you. Don't be surprised to find several cops standing there 
  using you as target practice if you poke your head out of a safe area. Your 
  best bet to get rid of a 3-Star Wanted Rating is to use a Pay N' Spray.

  Now a second helicopter and the SWAT team joins in. They will try to 
  blockade the road with their Enforcers and rappel down from the helicopter. 
  They are heavily armed with powerful submachine guns will make quick work 
  of your vehicle when encountering a SWAT roadblock. I've had a many as 
  eight cops standing in the open taking shots at me (and making the most of 
  them) at 4-Star.

  If you're in a aircraft, you will be shot at by missiles and be chased by 
  fighter jets.

  This is the highest wanted level you can obtain while confined to Los 
  Santos.

  Now the FBI joins the pursuit with their FBI Ranchers. You can achieve this 
  rating after the mission "Farewell, My Love..." (Cesar Vialpando). There is 
  a Stat for how long you can maintain a chase with a 5-Star Wanted Rating.

  The Army finally gets in on the fun here. They will come with Flatbeds and 
  Rhinos and will kill you on sight. Considering how aggressive the cops are 
  in San Andreas your chances for survival with a 6-Star Wanted Rating for 
  more than a few seconds are very slim and probably none.

  Of course, that also depends on where you hole yourself up at and what 
  weapons you have at your disposal. A couple of people have written me 
  telling me how much fun they had with a 6-Star Wanted Rating.

When you can't find any Police Bribes to get rid of law enforcement you can
drive into one of these places to deal with it. You can also use these places
to change to color of you vehicle to any color you want. They are represented
by a green spray can on your map.

These Pay N' Sprays are opened at the beginning of the game and can be found
in the following locations within San Andreas:

  --Temple (Los Santos). Southwest of the Mulholland Burger Shot.
  --Idlewood (Los Santos). South of the Idlewood BarberShop and southwest of 
    the Well Stacked Pizza Co.
  --Dillimore (Red County). North part of town.
  --Juniper Hollow (San Fierro). West of the Juniper Hollow Burger Shot.
  --Downtown (San Fierro). West of the highway leading to the Garver Bridge 
    and northeast of the Xoomer Garage.
  --El Quebrados (Desert). East part of town.
  --Fort Carson (Desert). Central part of town.
  --Redsands East (Las Venturas). One block south of the Las Venturas Gym.
  --Royal Casino (Las Venturas) (Available in PS2 version only. In the Xbox 
    version the door remains closed). East of the main casino. NOTE: This one 
    is not shown on the map and therefore hidden (info courtesy of 
    glenJammin). Can also be used to access Grey Hell. The opening is where 
    the door meets the ground.

| BombShop |
0==========0

Like the previous two games in the GTA series, you can rig a car with a bomb
so you can cause some chaos or leave a nasty surprise for someone you
dislike. However, there is no icon on the map for these places so you will
have to look around a bit.

Once a car is modified with a bomb, you prime it by using Circle (PS2) or A/B
(Xbox). Then sit back and watch the fun.

These BombShops are found at the following locations within San Andreas:

  --[8 Ball Autos] El Corona (Los Santos). Next door to the El Corona 24-7.
  --[Weldings and Weddings] Redsands East (Las Venturas). Next door to the 
    Las Venturas Gym.

| A.19. Exploration and Unwelcome Areas                                     |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

In both GTA3 and GTA:VC there were roadblocks that kept you confined to a
certain area of the city until you passed a particular mission in which case
one of them would be removed.

Of course, they could be easily circumvented by a variety of means so you
could explore the rest of the city and obtain items which could be used in
the early stages of the game to make things easier on yourself.

With the swimming element introduced in San Andreas you can very easily get
around the roadblocks that are supposed to keep you confined to Los Santos.

However, Rockstar inplemented something that will make you think twice about
leaving Los Santos early.

When you cross the water and enter an Unwelcome Area (like Las Venturas) you
will be hit with a 4-Star Wanted Rating. As I've noted, this is a difficult
Wanted Rating to deal with. Worse still, Pay N' Sprays, Police Bribes, and
even the Lower Wanted Level cheats WILL NOT work while in an Unwelcome Area.

That's right. You're stuck with it until you go back to where you came from
so you can get rid of it. However, more than likely you will end up going
back in a body bag because of the very aggressive Police. This also makes
early exploration of an area very difficult.

However, because of the huge size of San Andreas, being confined to Los
Santos really isn't a Bad Thing. The Los Santos / Red County area is much
larger than Vice City with plenty of area to explore. San Andreas is also
easier to deal with when you just focus on one area at a time instead of
trying to absorb it all at once.

But you can swim around these Unwelcome Areas without getting a 4-Star Wanted
Rating as long as you don't make landfall. The only exceptions are an area on
the west side of Los Santos Inlet and the area around the Aircraft Carrier at
San Fierro. I used this to my advantage when collecting Oysters at the
beginning part of the game.

You can also fly around in the open water all around the San Andreas area
without getting the 4-Star Wanted Rating as long as you don't fly over land.
I also used this to my advantage.

You can still do some of the challenges and tasks in the Unwelcome Areas but
the 4-Star Wanted Rating will make them much more difficult. I'll explain
that later also.

But there is a way to easily explore Unwelcome Areas early without Wanted
Ratings. There is an exploit that happens during the mission "Reuniting The
Families" (Sweet Johnson) that allows you to fully explore San Andreas
without any interference. I'll go more into detail about that when I get to
that mission.

Like in GTA3, you can also grab Police Vehicles and use them in Vigilante 
Missions. And there are a lot of Police Vehicles you can use for that 
purpose.

Below is the list of police vehicles you may encounter in San Andreas.....

X===========================================================================X
| Police Car (found anywhere in the cities of San Andreas. Bonus: you get 5 |
| Shotgun shells when entering one (if you don't already have a Shotgun you |
| can get a Shotgun with 5 shells.))                                        |

| Predator (police boat - found in the water around San Andreas)            |
|===========================================================================|
| SWAT Enforcer (at 4-Star Wanted Rating. Bonus: you can get Body Armor     |
| when entering an Enforcer.)                                               |
|===========================================================================|
| Police Rancher (in rural countrysides of San Andreas. You can also get    |
| Shotgun ammo by getting in a Police Rancher).                             |
|===========================================================================|
| FBI Rancher (at 5-Star Wanted Rating)                                     |
|===========================================================================|
| Barracks (at 6-Star Wanted Rating)                                        |
|===========================================================================|
| Rhino (at 6-Star Wanted Rating)                                           |
|===========================================================================|
| Police Maverick (can be found on the roof of the Los Santos Police HQ.    |
| Press R3 (PS2) or Right Analog Stick Button (Xbox) to activate            |
| searchlight. Thanks to Nick Markovich for finding that.)                  |
|===========================================================================|
| Hunter (unlocked at the Verdant Meadows Aircraft Graveyard by getting all |
| Golds at the Flight School)                                               |
X===========================================================================X

When in a Police Vehicle, press Activate Vehicle Mission to begin a Vigilante
Mission. You will be prompted to chase and destroy a selected target, which
is another car. You have to kill all the criminals in the car before moving
onto the next level.

Sometimes, if you damage the criminal's car enough, the criminals may exit
the car to confront you. Drive-by or run them over to get rid of them. The
higher you go up the levels, the more criminals you will have to deal with
(up to a maximum of three cars per level).

In San Andreas, at later levels of the Vigilante Mission, the criminals will
shoot at you from their cars while you are chasing them. Some of them will
carry Shotguns which can seriously and quickly damage your vehicle (and
yourself if you are using a motorcycle).

It is best to get Hitman Weapon Skill Level on whatever weapon you plan to
use for the Vigilante Mission to increase your distance and rate of fire to
deal with these threats quickly.

After completing Level 12, you will be rewarded with a permanent increase in
your armor (going up to 150 maximum).

The Hunter, unlocked later in the game, is definitely the best vehicle to use
for the Vigilante Missions although using the Cop Motorcycle is also a good
way to do this mission (more details later).

| A.21. Driving and Bike Skills                                             |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

When you first start the game and enter a car you will see that the car might
not handle too well. This is not neccessarily because of the car itself but
because it is that you don't have any Driving Skill. The more you drive
around in a car, the more you increase your Driving Skill. The higher your
Driving Skill, the better the car begins to handle (although that is open for
debate).

I should note that it takes a very long time to max out your Driving Skill
but you can speed that up by doing the Driving School which opens up later in
the game.

The same principle goes for Bike (Motorcycle) Skill. The more you ride around
on a Motorcycle, the better the handling. In addition, you won't fall off as
easily when struck. Maxing out your Bike Skill doesn't take nowhere near as
long as does the Driving Skill but it will take some time to do. You may want
to max out your Bike Skill first if you want to do the Vigilante Mission on
the Cop Motorcycle.

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

In San Andreas you can now use Bicycles. Bicycles also have skills that can
be upgraded. The more you ride a bike, the better you become. The better your
Cycling Skill, the less likely you will fall off by going backwards.

You will also increase your ability to do Bunny-Hops which is jumping with
your bike straight up in the air.

When you max out your Cycling Skill you can do very high Bunny-Hops. It is
best to max out your Cycling Skill before doing the BMX Challenge in Los
Santos.

| A.23. Flying Skill, the Shamal, and Skydiving                             |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

The last vehicle stat that can be upgraded is the Flying Skill. As before,
the more you fly a plane, the better your skill becomes. When you reach about
20% through maxing your Flying Skill, you will get your Pilot's License and
the gates to the runways to all three airports will open and you will have an
easier time getting to an airplane. You can increase your Flying Skill
quickly by doing the Pilot School which is opened up later in the game.

You can still upgrade your Flying Skill while still confined in Los Santos.
What you need to do is get a car and go near the runway gate near the pink
and green Nude Shop in El Corona. Get against the wall and climb on top of
the car then climb the wall. Then go around the chain-link fences and go to
the west end of the airport where you will see a jet (the Shamal).

[NOTE: On the Xbox version DO NOT try to upgrade you Flying Skill until you
reach the Flight School. Otherwise you will trigger the Pilots License Bug
and you will screw yourself. See Section A.25. Bugs for more details.]

The Shamal is a pretty fast jet and will allow you to get your skill upgraded
reasonably quickly.

You use the Look Left and Look Right buttons to turn the Shamal while on the
ground so you can get lined up for takeoff. Once in the air, you can get
really far up in the sky.

Head due south until you "fly off the map" and go over deep water. Then just
go around the entire San Andreas area to get your Flying Skill upgraded.

If you accidentally fly into an Unwelcome Area you will get a 4-Star Wanted
Rating and you will chased by a fighter jet and be shot at by heat seeking
missiles.

Maxing out your Flying Skill won't nearly take as long as maxing your Driving
Skill especially with the Shamal. Maxing out your Flying Skill will
automatically give you a Parachute every time you jump out of a plane
regardless of whether or not you had one when you entered the plane.

If you want to skydive, press Exit Vehicle while in an airplane high in the
air. Push forward on the Left Analog Stick to fall faster. Press Circle (PS2)
or B (Xbox) to deploy the Parachute. You can control your direction with the
Left Analog Stick. To slow your descent pull back on the stick. You can
actually fly pretty far this way.

If you have a Wanted Level while in the air you will be vunerable to police
attacks because you can't use weapons while parachuting.

If you haven't maxed out your Pilot Skill you will want to find where the
Parachute Icons are before flying.

There are many places in San Andreas that you can buy. Each of these places 
serve as save points and each property bought will inch you closer to 100%

Some of these properties have additional features, like garages. All
Safehouses have closets where you keep all of the clothes you get during
the course of the game.

There are several Safehouses that can be purchased at the beginning of the
game (they will show green on your map). Other properties won't be accessible
until later in the game (they will show red on your map).

  Sometimes you will see a black man with a black shirt just standing on the 
  sidewalk with his arms crossed. He is a Crack Dealer. You can talk to him 
  and give him eithar a positive or negative response. However, when you see 
  one, just run over him. When you kill a Crack Dealer he will drop a lot of 
  money (at least $3,000 or more). A good way to earn some cash.

San Andreas, like most games, has it's share of glitches and flaws. The vast 
majority of them are minor and some of them can be used to get around certain 
obstacles. However, this section is dedicated to more serious problems that 
can get in the way of things. Crash bugs and other problems that can 
seriously affect gameplay are some of the things that are listed here. 

They also have to appear during regular gameplay - meaning, no cheat codes. 
Plus, all serious bugs have to be verified. This means being able to make the 
bug happen again doing what you did before. By listing the very serious bugs 
here, I'm trying to help gamers avoid potential headaches that can negatively 
affect their experience.

Fortunately, there is just one serious bug to report at this time:

0========================================0
| Pilots License Bug (Xbox - AO Version) |
0========================================0

  If you get your Pilots License before you open up the Flight School (or, at 
  least, the Desert / Las Venturas area) you will run into this bug.

  One of the things it does is it prevents you from doing the Taxi Mission. 
  You can activate the Taxi Mission but you will get a message saying "There 
  are no fares nearby. Keep looking." However, you can drive all around the 
  city, literally for hours, and no fares will generate. Ever.

  Worse, it will also prevent you from completing one of the Main Story 
  Missions. During the mission "Mike Toreno" (Loco Syndicate), you have to 
  find him using a cellphone. You are then told to go to a certain 
  destination. Once there, you are told to go to another destination. The 
  problem occurs when you reach the second destination. No matter from which 
  angle you approach it at or even of you sit on top of it, the game won't 
  recognize that you are at the second destination and you cannot progress 
  further in the mission. And, as a result, you cannot progress further in 
  the Main Story Missions. You either have to start from a point before 
  getting the Pilots License or restart your game from scratch.

  The best way to avoid this problem is to wait until you open the Flight 
  School and get you License then.

  However, there are some people that are saying that they are getting the 
  bug even when waiting to get the License at the Flight School. Because of 
  this it may also be possible that this bug could be hardware related but 
  there is no hard evidence of that at this time.

  It is also unclear if this could be fixed for the upcoming Caffeine Free 
  (Xbox) version of San Andreas.

  In addition, according to SkippPOP, this problem also occurs on the PC 
  version.

Los Santos, based on Los Angeles, is where you will spend a lot of time in.
There is plenty to see and do. Most of the rich people live in Richman and
Rodeo areas. A lot of the lower class people, including the Families, live in
the south and eastern parts of town.

To the north is Red County. It has lots of open countryside and small towns.
You can find plenty of places to hide from the cops out here. The open spaces
also make it easier to do certain things, like the Vigilante Mission.

Weapons are the tools of the trade for any professional criminal regardless
of sophistication (or lack thereof). There are 32 different weapons, in nine
different categories, that can be found and used to create mayhem and abuse.
However, you can only have one of each type at a time so you can only carry a
maximum of nine weapons.

But there are other items that are not weapons but can be used for different
purposes like picture taking, jumping from high buildings, or fostering
relationships with some of the Girlfriends you can date within the game.
There are three slots for these Other Items. It should be noted that some of
these items can be used as weapons depending on the situation.

Most of the weapons listed have Weapon Skills that can be upgraded which will
make these weapons far more effective.

Some Weapon Classes use the same type of ammo so you can easily get a lot of
ammo for a weapon by switching from one type of weapon within that class for
another within the same class. The Shotgun class is one example. You can
increase your Shotgun ammo by switching from one type of Shotgun to another
since they use the same ammo. But not all Weapon Classes allow you to do that
(an example would be the Handgun class since the Handguns in that class all
use different ammo for each type).

Most of these Weapons can be found at Ammu-Nation which will be opened after
completion of "Doberman" (Sweet Johnson). More weapons will be available for
purchase at Ammu-Nation as you progress through the game.

These Ammu-Nations can be found in the following locations within the Los
Santos / Red County and are represented by a gun on the map:

  --Downtown Los Santos. Where you start "Doberman" (Sweet Johnson).
  --Willowfield (Los Santos). West of the Willowfield Safehouse.
  --Palomino Creek (Red County). Central part of town and next door to the 
    Palomino Creek Well Stacked Pizza Co.
  --Blueberry (Red County). South part of town and just northeast of the 
    Blueberry Well Stacked Pizza Co.

Below are the Weapons and Other Items that can be found in the Los Santos and
Red County area:

    This weapon is much better implemented in San Andreas than was in Vice

    Outside of a kick to the groin or forcing him to play "Stuntman" (or 
    "Driv3r" - take your pick), this is probably the best way to make a grown

  | Spray Can |
  0===========0

    This is used to spray over Graffiti Tags. But it can also be used like 
    Tear Gas to stun an enemy and if you keep spraying him it will even kill 
    him. Not exactly environmental friendly.....

          Turf" (Sweet Johnson).

  | Camera |

    These goggles allow you to see the heat signature of objects especially

To start, I'm going to do as much of the off-story stuff as possible before 
doing the first official mission, "Big Smoke" / "Sweet and Kendl". 

A lot of this stuff can be done in any order but doing some things in a 
certain sequence will be of most benefit to you like maxing out your Cycling
Skill before doing the BMX Challenge.

All the tasks in the section are listed in the order I did them for this 
guide. This also chronicles my journey through San Andreas.

Since I can't fully explore the areas outside Los Santos / Red County, at
this time, my primary focus is to do as much as possible before going into
the Main Story Missions. This includes maxing out every skill I can including
all but one of my weapons, all of my Vehicle Stats, and most of my physical
stats.

I won't lie to you. Maxing out most of these skills before doing the Main
Story Missions will take a long time. However, I would rather do them now and
get it over with rather than being forced away from the story to upgrade
something so I can beat certain missions.

It is 1992 and Carl Johnson is returning home to Los Santos after a five year
self-exile to Liberty City. It is not a happy occasion however, since he is
returning home because his mother has been killed. 

Upon arrival, it gets worse for him. He encounters two cops from his
gangbanging past, Officer Tenpenny and Officer Pulaski, who are very corrupt
and frame him for a cop's murder to drag him back into the game once again.

To top that off, they drop him into Ballas turf. The Ballas are rivals of the
Grove Street Families and Carl has to get himself out of there pronto. All he
has in front of him is a bicycle and thus the story begins.....

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

When you get onto the bike, press Pedal to move forward. To go faster, Pedal.
To sprint, tap Pedal faster and you will see him stand on the bike and pedal
really fast. You can actually go quite a distance this way.

To Bunny-Hop, hold R1 (PS2) or B (Xbox) then release to jump. The higher your
Cycling Skill, the higher you will jump.

If you happen to come to a stop when you climbing a steep incline, rapidly
tap Pedal to shoot yourself up the incline. This skill will come in handy for
the BMX Challenge later.

Be careful when going at top speed. If you smack into a pedestrian, you will
wreck (as well as killing the pedestrian).

Instead of heading toward the CJ Icon on the map, I am going to head toward
the Commerce 24-7 west of City Hall. In front of the 24-7 is another BMX
bike. But this one is special. Getting on this bike will trigger the Commerce
24-7 Courier Asset Mission.

This is a simple mission. While on the bike you have to throw packages
through the red coronas shown on your map. You have do this Drive-By style
using the Look Left and Look Right Buttons in conjunction with the Attack
Button. If you miss you can get a second chance by picking up the package and
trying again.

Part of your score is determined by how many packages you bring back to the
24-7 when you complete a level.

After completing the last corona in the run you then have to go back to the
Commerce 24-7 to complete the run.

There are a total of four runs to complete:

Run #1
******
  --Coronas = 3
  --Packages = 6
  --Time Limit = 3 minutes

Run #2
******
  --Coronas = 4
  --Packages = 6
  --Time Limit = 5 minutes

Run #3
******
  --Coronas = 5
  --Packages = 7
  --Time Limit = 5 minutes

Run #4
******
  --Coronas = 6
  --Packages = 8
  --Time Limit = 10 minutes

For the last run you will notice that the packages are really spread out.
Start by going west and going clockwise along the course. You can practically
sprint all the way through the course even with low Stamina. Just try not to
wreck too much.

Upon completion you gain a Money Icon outside the 24-7 and it will max out at
$2,000. You also inch closer toward 100% Completion and earn more than
$10,000 which is more than enough for me to do the following.....

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

While still on the bike I head back toward CJ's house. Even though I haven't
entered the red circle I can save the bike inside the garage. I will need it
later. I also took the opportunity to go behind the house so I can climb the
fence, the garage roof, the house roof, and finally walked over to the nearby
Pawn Shop roof to get a Spray Can so I can do the Graffiti Tags later.

From here I went into the flood control channel to the east and went under
the two bridges to get a Micro SMG and Body Armor. Then I went out of the
channel, back into the street, and headed straight north toward the green
Safehouse Icon (on the map) in Jefferson.

I purchased the Safehouse and saved my game before doing my next
objective.....

| B.I.4. Inside Track Betting and Easy Money                                |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

After saving my game I got a nearby car and headed west into the north part
of Downtown Los Santos. Under the raised freeway and just south of the
parking lot under the Mulholland Intersection is the Inside Track Betting
parlor.

Here you can bet on the horses. And it is here you can win a lot of money. A
whole lot of money.

Walk to the ITB Machine to play the horses. There are five choices and they
go from top to bottom from best odds to long odds. The long odds are usually
10 to 1, 11 to 1, and 12 to 1. You can also bet in increments from $5 to
$10,000.

As it turns out, based on info from the message boards, all of the horses
have the same chances of winning regardless of the odds posted. It is not
skewed to where the worst horse loses 99 time out of a hundred or where the
best horse wins most of the time. No, all of the horses have an equal chance
to win the races.

To start trying to win money bet all of your money on the bottom horse. If
you win, go back to the Jefferson Safehouse and save your game. Then go back
here to win more money. If you lose, pause, reload from your Jefferson
Safehouse save point and come back here to try again.

The maximum you can bet at any one time is $9,999,995. At 12 to 1 odds that
means you can win a maximum of $119,999,936.

However, it can become tedious trying to get that 119 million. The maximum
increment is $10,000 and you have to press the button once for each ten grand
you wish to bet. You can't just hold the button down to get it to increase.
You either have to tap fast using two fingers or use a programmable joypad to
speed things up.

Of course, having $10,000,000 plus is more than enough to get things started
so you don't have to try to get $100,000,000 unless you want to but it will
be very nice to have.

Regardless of whether or not you have over ten million or over a hundred
million, purchase the remaining available Safehouses.

I did this after I did most other stuff before the Main Story Missions but I
felt that this strategy to getting a lot of money would be best done after
purchasing the first Safehouse in Jefferson.

| B.I.5. Oysters                                                            |

The next thing I am going to do here is to collect as many Oysters as I can.
There are 50 Oysters scattered around the whole San Andreas area. They can be
found only in the water but can be found inland in lakes and swimming pools.

As explained earlier I can swim around Unwelcome Areas as long as I don't
make landfall. There are a couple of exceptions, however, mainly around near
the Easter Bay Airport (San Fierro) and the west end of Los Santos Inlet.
Trust me, the last thing you want is to have a 4-Star Wanted Rating while
exposed in the water.

By swimming around these areas I can get a total of 39 Oysters out of 50.
This will take about a couple of hours because of the distance traveled and
swimming speed. But in the process I am increasing my Max Health, Stamina,
and Lung Capacity.

While swimming, dive and swim beneath the water until you have about 10% air
left then surface. Wait for your air to return to 100% then repeat. This will
help you to maximize your Lung Capacity. By the time I finished with my
Oyster collecting for this section I maxed my Lung Capacity, maxed my
Stamina, and nearly maxed my Health.

For collecting all 50 Oysters you get $100,000. You will also get $100 for
each Oyster you collect.

Each Oyster listed will be designated with a "Y" because "O" looks too much
like a zero. The numbering system is based on the one used in the Brady Guide
(Xbox / PC version) for pages 127, 132, 133, 136, and 137.

Because the Oysters are spread throughout San Andreas I am also adding a
sectional designation to make them easier to find:

   --LS - Los Santos
   --RC - Red County
   --FC - Flint County
   --WS - Whetstone
   --SF - San Fierro
   --TR - Tierra Robada
   --LV - Las Venturas

After saving at my Willowfield Safehouse I went to get the two Oysters inside
Los Santos:

[LS-Y2] - Inside the swimming pool of the large mansion behind the VINEWOOD 
          sign (Madd Dogg's Crib). Climb the fence on the north side to gain 
          entrance.

[LS-Y11] - Inside the lake in Glen Park.

Now it is time to enter the ocean. Head to Playa Del Seville and enter the
water. Head south:

[LS-Y3] - At the end of one of the concrete piers at Playa Del Seville.

[LS-Y4] - At the south end of the pier just southwest of the large docked 
           ship at Ocean Docks.

[LS-Y6] - Underneath the bridge just northwest of LS-Y4.

[LS-Y5] - Under the southernmost bridge at Ocean Docks. Southwest of LS-Y6.

[LS-Y7] - Just off the beach at the southwest corner of Los Santos 
          International Airport. Near the center of the curve.

[LS-Y1] - Just west of the Verdant Bluffs road tunnel near the south 
          entrance.

[LS-Y8] - Underneath the south road bridge in the Marina.

[LS-Y9] - Underneath the north road bridge in the Marina.

Swim to the Santa Maria Pier. Go to the end of the Pier and get a hot dog
from the vendor there. This will be the last time you can eat for awhile.
Jump into the water and head west:

[LS-Y10] - At the end of the Santa Maria Beach Lighthouse.

Now swim southwest and head toward Flint County.

[FC-Y27] - Under the southermost road bridge in Flint County.

Now head north along the river. As you near the next bridge, the water will
get very shallow. There is a sandbar in the middle and if you walk on it you
will get a 4-Star Wanted Rating. Just stay on the left side of the river and
head toward the next bridge where you will find.....

[FC-Y26] - Under the old wooden bridge just north of FC-Y29.

Keep going north and stay to the left part of the river until it gets deep
again. Eventually you will get to.....

[WS-Y28] - Under the bridge east of Mount Chiliad.

[WS-Y29] - Under the north-south bridge connecting Mount Chiliad and San 
           Fierro (in the middle).

Now head north along the west side of San Fierro. If you've done a lot of
diving to increase your Lung Capacity you may have it maxed by now. Turn east
when you see the Gant Bridge and head toward the large ship nearby.....

[SF-Y16] - On the south side of the south support tower for the Gant Bridge.

[SF-Y20] - Under the stern of the ship east of the Gant bridge.

Now head north.....

[TR-Y35] - Between the concrete bridge support for the Gant Bridge and the 
           rock wall.

Head east again.....

[TR-Y36] - Near the entrance of the small lagoon in Tierra Robada.

Go back south along the coastline.....

[TR-Y37] - By the roadside wall southeast of TR-Y36.

Head south toward the next ship. At this point you may get hungry but you
should have plenty of health to accomplish the rest of this part of the run.

[SF-Y19] - Under the ship northeast of San Fierro.

Head towards the middle of the Garver bridge.....

[SF-Y22] - Under the main bridge support to the Garver Bridge.

Head toward the little inlet east of the Kincaid Bridge.....

[BC-Y42] - At the end of the little inlet east of the Kincaid Bridge.

Go along the coastline and head north toward the Las Barrancas area.....

[BC-Y43] - In the small boathouse just north of the freeway bridge.

[BC-Y41] - Under the small road bridge in the inlet in the southwest part of 
           Las Barrancas.

Now head back south and toward the Easter Bay Airport.....

[SF-Y23] - At the end of the main runway for Easter Bay Airport.

[SF-Y18] - Under the stern of the ship southwest of SF-Y23. Hug the wall of 
           the runway while heading to the Oyster and back after collecting 
           it.

It should be noted that if you try to get the two Oysters at Easter Basin
west of the runway you will get a 4-Star Wanted Rating. This is because it is
part of the Easter Basin Naval Station and they don't like trespassers. I'll
get these a little bit later while using the "Reuniting The Families"
exploit. Head back east.....

[RC-Y30] - At the northwest part of the Panoptican.

Get back on land and get a vehicle. Get food to replenish your health and
save at the Willowfield Safehouse.

Now it is time to do the second major part of the Oyster run for this
section. Head north toward the Frederick Bridge and jump into the water.....

[RC-Y13] - Under the center of Frederick Bridge.

Now head north alongside the east coast of Las Venturas. Getting the two
Oysters by Las Venturas will take awhile but it can be done. You should be
very near the maximum Health limit by the time you head back toward the
Frederick Bridge.

[LV-Y45] - On the northeast corner of Las Venturas almost underneath the 
           boat.

[LV-Y44] - Near the Bone County Beach near the northwest part of Yellow Bell 
           Golf Club in Las Venturas. South of the boat parked nearby.

Head back toward the Frederick Bridge. Swim into San Andreas Sound and head
toward the river going south.

[RC-Y14] - Under the smaller bridge just south of the freeway bridge (west of 
           Palomino Creek).

[RC-Y12] - Under the pier at Fisher's Lagoon.

Head west and follow the river.....

[RC-Y15] - Under the road bridge northwest of Dillimore.

[RC-Y31] - Under the bridge just east of Flint Water.

Once in Flint Water head south.....

[RC-Y32] - Under the bridge just south of Flint Water.

[RC-Y33] - Under the railroad bridge southeast of RC-Y32.

[RC-Y34] - Under the bridge northeast of the Flint Intersection.

Once back inside Los Santos Inlet head west.....

[FC-Y25] - In the northwest corner at the north end of the beach.

There. That takes care of most of the Oysters. At this point I have swam back
into Los Santos and saved my game so I can move onto my next objective.....

| B.I.6. Graffiti Tags                                                      |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

In Los Santos there are 100 Graffiti Tags that must be spraypainted over with
the Grove Street Families tag. You're supposed to do this after the mission
"Tagging Up Turf" (Sweet Johnson) but you can do them all before doing the
Main Story Missions. When doing the "Tagging Up Turf" the six tags you
covered up will be uncovered so you can cover them back up to complete the
mission. I played around and found out that you can get all 100 Tags before
the Main Story Missions without negatively affecting "Tagging Up Turf".

I used the BMX bike that I saved in the garage then I went and found the
Spray Can Icon in Las Colinas so I can get enough paint to start doing the
Tags. By doing the Tags now I am increasing my familarity with the Los Santos
area.

To spray paint a tag, you use Target to aim and use the Attack to paint. Wait
until the game prompts that the tag has been successfully painted before
stopping. Make sure that no cops are around when tagging otherwise you will
get a Wanted Rating.

When starting you may want to use a Bicycle to get from Tag to Tag (and to
get Spray Cans) so you can max out your Cycling Skill. Once you do that, get
a Motorcycle and begin maxing your Bike Skill. You may also want to
accumulate weapons you find to begin maxing out your Weapon Skills later.

The Tags are listed using the numbering system within the Brady Guide (Xbox /
PC version) on pages 127-130.

When all 100 Tags are finished your Respect will increase and the following
Weapon Icons will spawn in the kitchen of CJ's house:

  --AK47
  --Tec9
  --Sawnoff Shotgun
  --Molotov Cocktails

And, according to Allan Curtis, your fellow gang members will be armed with
more powerful weapons like the SMG, Desert Eagles, and Knives.

The Graffiti Tag list is as follows:

| B.I.7. BMX Challenge                                                      |

To the west of County Hospital is a Skate Park. By one of the half-pipes on
top of the small hill is a BMX bike. Getting on this bike will trigger the
BMX Challenge.

There are 19 coronas you have to get to complete the challenge. Some of them
are really high up in the air so it is recommended that you max out your
Cycling Skill beforehand so you can Bunny-Hop to them. There are three of
them on the half-pipes and they are the toughest to get. One is actually on
the flat top of one of the half-pipes and the other two are in the air on
each side of the other half-pipe.

Before doing the BMX Challenge, use the BMX bike you should have saved in
CJ's garage and practice doing the half-pipes. Go up one side and tap Pedal
really fast. You should shoot up the side and into the air. Learn how to land
and how to go up the other side of the pipe. Once you get the hang of it, get
onto the other bike to start the challenge.

When you start the challenge, you get ten seconds and get an additional ten
seconds for each corona you collect.

Get all of the other coronas on the ground and air as quickly as possible
before doing the half-pipe ones. This will allow you to get enough time so
you can get the last three on the half-pipes.

Once you complete the Challenge you will inch closer to 100% Completion.

| B.I.8. Vigilante Mission                                                  |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

After maxing out my Cycling Skill during painting over Tags I went and
grabbed a Motorcycle (there's a very fast one in the carpark in East Beach)
and went to max out my Bike Skill so I can try to do the Vigilante Mission on
the Cop Motorcycle. After doing the Tags I went from SubMachine Gun Weapon
Icon to SubMachine Gun Weapon Icon to get lots of ammo so I could max out my
SMG skill while maxing out my Bike Skill. After maxing out my SMG Weapon
Skill, I continued to go to the SubMachine Gun Weapon Icons to amass more
ammo while continuing to max out my Bike Skill. By the time I maxed out my
Bike Skill I had about 4,000 rounds for my SMG.

Of course, you don't have to go as far as I did in preparation for the
Vigilante Mission. You should have about SMG and about 3,000 rounds. You
should also steal a Cop Motorcycle and store it in CJ's garage. A bit of Bike
Skill also helps too.

I found that the best place to do the Vigilante Mission is in the Red County
area. Very little traffic and few cops to stop you if you get a Wanted Rating
during the mission. And even then the Police Ranchers are easy to deal with
since the country cops are not as aggressive as their city counterparts. By
doing this mission in the country you are making the mission much easier.

By using the Cop Motorcycle I also have the ability to shoot forward which
gives me a huge advantage. All I have to do is just get behind my quarry and
shoot up the back of their car until it blows up.

The downside is that the criminals in the cars, at later levels, will shoot
back at you while being pursued. And somne of them will wield Shotguns. They
can quickly destroy your armor and health if you get too close. This is why
you should have Hitman Weapon Skill Level on the SMG. This way you can shoot
further and reduce the damage they can do.

When you completing level 12 of the Vigilante Mission you will increase your
maximum Body Armor from 100 to 150 and inch closer to 100% Completion.

According to Jason Vercellone, if you decide to do the Vigilante Mission
later in the game using the Hunter, you can max out your level reward at
$1,000,000 per level at about level 130.

Several people have written to me about tricks that can allow you to enter
buildings to do the Vigilante Mission. You enter a building, wait a few
seconds, and the threat will be gone. Go back, reenter your Police vehicle,
get back out and, repeat the process. However, I have not gotten them to work
100% of the time. In addition, these tricks do not seem to work on the Xbox
so I will stick to my above strategies for now.

After doing the Vigilante Mission I focused on upgrading as many of my Stats
as possible to their maximum prior to doing anything else. I have managed to
max out all of my Weapon Skills (except the Combat Shotgun since it is not
available in Los Santos), my Driving Skill (this took a long time), and most
of my Flying Skill.

You don't have to max out everything unless you want to. I will suggest that
you should try max out your SubMachine Gun skills (since they don't take very
long) and try to get about a quarter of your Driving Skills in. You may also
want to get some Flying Skill too (probably about a quarter - enough to open
the airport runway gates) [Remember, don't try this with the Xbox version -
wait until Flight School]. This will make things a little easier in the early
going through the Main Story Missions.

| B.I.10. 8-Track (Los Santos Forum)                                        |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

After maxing out my Driving Skill, I went to the Los Santos Forum to try my
hand at the 8-Track Event.

This is a 12 lap race around a figure-eight course. There are twelve cars on
the course including yourself.

The cars used are Hotring Racers. But these are not the same Hotring Racers
used in Vice City. They are not as durable and even with maximum Driving
Skill it handles like shit (I should note that you can win this race with low
Driving Skill).

The starting point is under the bridge over the middle of the course. There
is a sharp left and a bottleneck as you get onto the bridge and a sharp right
as you head back toward the starting line. These are the places where you can
really get messed up if you're not careful.

The key thing in doing the race is patience. You can't go too fast otherwise
you will slide into the walls at the sharp curves which will damage your car
and cause you to lose position. As you head back toward the starting line, go
along the wall on the right side. This will allow you to gain position. When
you get back underneath the bridge, be careful of the other cars. However, if
you hit the rear of the car in front of you, you can cause him to spin out
because of the angle you are at when you get under the bridge. This will also
allow you to gain position.

When you finally get into first place, be conservative. Try not to hit any of
the walls from here on out even if you have to really slow down on the sharp
curves to do it. This will allow you to keep your car in shape until the end
of the race.

If you finish in first place you will win $10,000 and inch closer to 100%
Completion. In addition, the Hotring Racer and the Monster (which is a big
ass monster truck) will spawn outside the Los Santos Forum.

I should note that the Monster truck has no Handbrake. It has 4-Wheel
Steering in it's place. When used it will allow you to do very sharp
cornering.

Behind the Gas Station, in Idlewood (where you do Graffiti Tag T67), you will
find a car parked there called the Broadway. Upon entering it you will notice
that you can do a vehicle based mission. That mission is called the Pimping
Mission. Press the Activate Vehicle Mission button to begin the mission.

When you first start you will be prompted to pick up your girl. When you do,
you will have a time limit (usually three minutes) to take her to a customer.
Once you have dropped her off, you will be prompted to pick up another girl.
When you have done that you have about a three minute time limit to take her
to her customer. When you have dropped her off, you will be prompted to pick
up the first girl.

So now you begin alternating between the two girls. When one is finished, you
pick her up, take her to another customer, and be prompted to pick up the
other girl to repeat the process.

There are ten customers to serve during this mission. In addition you may see
your Pimping Skill go up even though I haven't found it in the Stats.

One of three things will happen when you are prompted to pick up a girl:

One, you will get a notice she is finished and waiting to be picked up. Here
you can take your time and even repair your car if you have taken too much
damage from smacking it around.

Second, she is getting roughed up by the customer. You have about three
minutes to get to her before the customer kills her. Once you get there, exit
your car and kill the customer. Then you have twenty seconds to get back in
the car before the mission ends. Get back in the car, pick up your girl, and
head to the next customer.

Third, the customer refuses to pay. You have about three minutes to get to
your girl before the customer runs off. When you get there the customer will
run for it. Kill him before he gets too far. Just line him up and run him
over. If you have to get out and chase him, don't run too far too since you
have twenty seconds to get back in the car before the mission ends. Get back
in the car, pick up your girl, and head to the next customer.

When you pick up a girl, you will get a cut of the earnings. You will always
get $300 from the girl but your money will increase due to a multiplier which
also serves as a indicator of how many customers you have served regardless
of the outcome.

When you have served your tenth customer the mission will end successfully.
You will get a little closer to 100% Completion plus a little bonus. From now
on, whenever you decide to do business with a prostitute she will pay you
instead of you paying her for the pleasure.

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Like in the previous two GTA games there is a Ambulance Mission to do in
order to get 100% Completion. The rules are still the same.

You have to climb into an Ambulance and press Activate Vehicle Mission to
begin the mission. You drive around picking up patients and take them to a
nearby hospital. You can carry a maximum of three patients at one time so you
will have to plan your routes, using the in-game map, to find the best way to
pick them up.

There are twelve levels in the Ambulance Mission. You start with one patient
at Level 1 and a additional patient will be added in each level as you
progress. Care must be taken not to smack the Ambulance too much because of
the patients inside but it seems that the Ambulance is much tougher in San
Andreas than it was in Vice City.

There are three Hospitals in the Los Santos and Red County area. How
difficult or easy this mission is determined by which hospital you use. So
which is the best one to do the mission with?

I found that Montgomery Hospital in Red County is a very good place to do the
mission. The patients tend to be within the city limits for the early part of
the mission which makes it easy because the town is small. But at Level 8
things start to change. You will then start to see patients in Dillimore,
Palomino Creek, and Hampton Barns. Even so, it is still not too difficult
since there is a lot of room to make your own shortcuts and avoid traffic.

When you have to deal with traffic, you can make things easier on yourself by
using the Siren to make the cars move out of the way.

Within Montgomery city limits your time bonus for each patient is 16-19
seconds. Outside the city limits your time bonus for each patient is at least
45 seconds.

However, if you're willing to wait, the best place to do the Ambulance
Mission period is in Angel Pine. All of the patients remain confined to the
small town thus making the mission easier (and faster).

Once you have successfully completed the Ambulance Mission your Health will
be maxed out (although in my case I had already maxed out my Health so it
made no difference) and take another step toward 100% Completion.

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

The Firetruck Mission also makes a return in San Andreas. Here you have to
get a Firetruck and press Activate Vehicle Mission to start the Firetruck
Mission. You then have to go from place to place extinguishing fires with the
water cannon by using the Attack button.

There are twelve levels to complete. On Level 1 you just have to put out a
car fire. On Level 2 you have to put out the car fire but when you do that a
person will exit and he will be on fire and you will have to put him out. The
person will then try to run away so you have to go and chase him (but
thankfully he won't run too far).

As you progress through the levels a person will be added to a car for each
level you pass up to a maximum of three people per car. At Levels 5 and 9 new
cars are added up to a maximum of three cars. The game will spread out the
cars so you have to go from car to car extinguishing them and the passengers
who try to flee.

There is no Fire Station in Los Santos but a Firetruck can usually be found
by a salmon and blue building west of the Skate Park (which is west of County
Hospital in Jefferson).

As with the Ambulance Mission I found that doing the mission in Red County
was the best place to do it because of the light traffic and open country in
which to make shortcuts. Use the Siren to make the traffic move out of the
way to seed things up and limit damage to your Firetruck.

After completing Level 12 you will then successfully complete the Firetruck
Mission. You will get a little closer to 100% Completion and become
fireproof.

| B.I.14. Taxi Mission                                                      |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Just like in GTA3 and Vice City you can do the Taxi Mission. The rules are
simple. Get a Taxi and press Activate Vehicle Mission to begin the mission.

Basically, you pick up a person and take him (or her) to a destination. You
are given a time limit to get the person there. After dropping off the
passenger you then need to find another fare and repeat the process.

The faster you can get and drop off passengers, the more time you can
accumulate so you can go and repair the Taxi in a Pay N' Spray every so
often. This is because you will be smacking into a lot of cars because of the
way people drive in San Andreas. I should also point out that you won't be
able to pick up any passengers if your cab is trashed but if you trash your
cab with a passenger still inside they won't flee like they did in the
previuos two GTA's

I should also note that you can't do the Taxi Mission in Red County. All of
the destinations for the Taxi Mission are in Los Santos.

There are some differences between the Taxi Mission in San Andreas and the
Taxi Missions in the previous two GTA's.

First, there is the Tip Line. When you get a passenger there will be a Tip
Line beneath the time limit. The line will shorten with time but will shorten
faster when you hit cars or other obstacles. If you get to your destination
with the Tip Line still on your screen you will get a Time Bonus. Since,
because of the way people drive in San Andreas, you will be smacking into a
lot of cars and you probably won't be getting a lot of Time Bonuses. Just
focus on getting the customer to their destination so you can continue.

Second, you only need to do 50 passengers instead of 100 like it was in the
last two GTA's. This makes things less tedious but the main reason for the
change is that if you try to do all 50 in one run you will start to go hungry
because of the amount of time it takes to get 50 in one run.

After successful completion of the Taxi Mission you will get closer to 100%
Completion and will get unlimited Nitros for all of the Taxis.

| B.I.15. Doing Things in Unwelcome Areas                                   |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Although you will be stuck with a 4-Star Wanted Rating when in Unwelcome
Areas you can still do things like Oyster collecting and even the Courier
Missions for San Fierro and Las Venturas.

I should note that trying to do these things with that Wanted Rating will
make things difficult and frustrating because of the extreme aggressiveness
of the cops and their very cheap ass tactics to screw you out of your
objectives. I do not recommend trying to do things in the Unwelcome Areas if
you are easily frustrated or angered.

I got a Parachute and flew over the area I wanted to enter. Then I jumped out
and deployed the Parachute and landed where I wanted to go. Usually the last
twenty feet or so leaves one vulnerable beacuse the cops are swarming and
shooting at you while landing.

I managed to do the following before I did the Main Story Missions:

  >>San Fierro Hippy Shopper Courier Asset Mission. Royal pain in the ass 
    with a 4-Star Wanted Rating. Because of those hills you can't see those 
    SWAT roadblocks until it is too late. And going slowly up those hills 
    will give the cops on foot plenty of opportunity to bust you.

  >>Las Venturas Burger Shot Courier Asset Mission. Not as bad as the San 
    Fierro one. The Faggio is much more manueverable and very quick on the 
    brakes which allowed me to easily avoid cars. The wide flat streets also 
    allowed me to easily avoid the SWAT roadblocks.

  >>NRG-500 Challenge (San Fierro). Having to deal with two cop cars in the 
    dry dock made this more challenging than it already was.

  >>Collected the remaining Oysters in San Fierro, the Sherman Reservior, and 
    Las Venturas.

  >>Did the Arena Events for San Fierro and Las Venturas. Doing them wasn't a 
    problem since these events are held indoors. Getting back to Los Santos 
    afterwards was.

  >>Did the three Mount Chiliad Bike Challenges. Once you start you are going 
    too fast for the cops to bust you but if you screw up you are in a lot of 
    trouble.

  >>I also managed to acquire about 2,500 Shotgun rounds then got back to Las 
    Venturas to get a Combat Shotgun. I then went back to Los Santos and 
    upgraded my Combat Shotgun Weapon Skill to Hitman level and still had 
    about 900 rounds leftover to boot.

I will go over the challenges, events, and Oysters later in the guide.

money to purchase things like clothes, food, and additional Safehouses.

When CJ finally enters his mother's house he finds it in disarray.
Overwhelmed with emotion he picks up his mother's picture and sits it on the
dining room table so he can stare at it for awhile.

However, he is suddenly confronted by someone who thinks CJ is a thief
looking for trouble. But CJ recognizes this person as Big Smoke, a friend of
the family. After a few moments Big Smoke recognizes CJ and they hug and
talk.

After a few moments they leave the house and head to the cemetary to meet up
with the others.....

  Big Smoke takes CJ to the cemetary where he meets up with his big brother 
  Sweet, sister Kendl, and fellow Families member Ryder. Unfortunately for 
  Carl, Sweet is a little upset that CJ didn't make it to the funeral and 
  still upset he ran out on Brian's funeral years ago. This arguing upsets 
  Kendl and she goes off to see her boyfriend Cesar who is Mexican. This 
  doesn't sit too well with Sweet and the two argue.

  But she still walks off. Sweet is still very upset that everything has gone 
  bad in the hood. When CJ asks, Sweet points out the graves of fellow 
  members who have met an untimely end at the hands of the rival gang: the 
  Ballas.

  Afterward, they all head back to the car but are ambushed by the Ballas. 
  They manage to destroy the car and now CJ and the rest have to ride bikes 
  back to the hood.....

  Ride the bike back to Ganton while keeping close to your group. Don't get

  However, the Ballas will chase you in their car. You can either try to 
  outrace them or, better still (if you have enough ammo), let them cut in 
  front of you and then blast the car to smithereens.

  When you manage to get back to the red circle at CJ's neighborhood you will 
  successfully complete the mission.

Reward

The Plan

  Get into Ryder's car to begin the mission.
  
  Your first stop is Reece's BarberShop in Idlewood. When you enter the place 
  you can choose from a variety of hairstyles. Usually the most expensive 
  hairstyles will gain you the most Respect. If you've spent some time 
  playing the horses at the Inside Track Betting then money will be no 
  object. I chose the Cornrow for CJ.

  After getting your haircut meet up with Ryder who is smoking outside. The 
  comments he makes about your haircut will vary depending on which one you 
  get. He suggests that you get something to eat while he finishes up with 
  his smoke.

  Enter the Well Stacked Pizza and get something to eat. It can be anything 
  on the menu but it should be noted that the largest meals will contain the 
  most Fat.

  After choosing your meal, Ryder will then try to rob the place. But the guy 
  behind the counter recoginzes Ryder and is not impressed by him. Worse, 
  while CJ and Ryder argue, the pizza guy pulls out a Shotgun and shoots at 
  them.

  Now you two have to make it back to Ganton. Get back in Ryder's car and go 
  back to his house. You don't need to face the pizza guy, just drive back to 
  Ryder's house to end the mission (Although one time I shot the guy in the 
  face with a Silenced Pistol). Ryder also mentions that Sweet has also been 
  upset about the tags and suggests that CJ see him.

Reward
0====0
  Respect Gained. In addition, all of the remaining restaurants, BarberShops, 
  and Tattoo Parlors open up. You may want to go around and check these 
  places out befre going on to the next mission.

The Plan
0======0
  If you've done all 100 Graffiti Tags prior to doing the Main Story Missions 
  you will see that six of your Tags have been "uncovered" so you can do this 
  mission. But it will have no negative effect on this mission or your game 
  status.

  First, drive off to Idlewood. The game will instruct you on how to make a 
  tag since the game designers wanted you to go through this mission first 
  before doing the Graffiti Tags. Get the remaining two Tags in this area 
  then go back to Sweet's car.

  Now drive to East Los Santos. There are three more Tags in this area. Get 
  the first one on the restaurant and head to the alley where the second one 
  is located. The second Tag has a couple of Ballas nearby. Instead of 
  confronting them, quickly do the Tag and run. If you try to confront them 
  with the Spray Can you will more than likely attract the attention of a 
  cop. For the third Tag you will be instructed on climbing the fence to get 
  to it.

  After getting the third Tag, you need to jump down and enter Sweet's car. 
  Drive back to Sweet's house to complete the mission.

  According to Odhita Kamayana, you can gain a Spray Can with unlimited ammo 
  if you kill Sweet and fail the mission.

Reward
0====0
  Respect Gained plus $200. Whatever amount of Spray Can "ammo" you had 
  before you started the mission you will have 500-500 when you finish. You 
  will also get a phone call from Officer Hernandez, who works with Tenpenny 
  and Pulaski, warning CJ not to leave town.

  Ryder tells CJ to drive over to a friend's house. The house belongs to 
  B-Dup and Big Bear and Ryder wants them to help out in cleaning the hood 
  even though they haven't seen each other for awhile. Get into the Greenwood 
  and drive over to the apartment.

  However, when they arrive, they find that B-Dup has become a Crack Dealer. 
  Worse, they also discover that Big Bear has become an addict and B-Dup has 
  turned him into his own personal slave. CJ and Ryder can not count on 
  B-Dup being friends with them anymore. After leaving they decide to find 
  some Crack Dealers.

  The game will then instruct you to go just north of B-Dup's apartment where 
  a Crack Seller is selling Crack to one of the homies. Confront him and use 
  any weapon to take him down. Me, I used my Silenced Pistol and shot him in 
  the face before he could finish talking to me.

  Ryder recognizes him as an ex-member of one of the rival gangs and knows 
  where he lives. The place is in Idlewood not far from where they are. Go 
  there and barge in. Your next task is to beat up on the dealer and all of 
  the other gang members that confront you. It is best to use a melee weapon 
  like a Baseball Bat instead of a gun. I found out the hard way when I 
  accidentally shot Ryder in the ruckus (ouch).

  After beating up everybody head back to Sweet's house to complete the 
  mission.

The Plan

  Drive over to the Cluckin' Bell in Willowfield. On the way the guys talk 
  about the death of CJ's mom. They also talk about a green Sabre that ran 
  from the scene. Once they get to the restaurant a cutscene will play 
  showing them ordering their food. However, a Ballas car has spotted them 
  and decides to go after them.

  Chase the Ballas car. Ryder and Sweet will help out with their weaponry 
  while Big Smoke decides to eat instead. You can help out with your SMG in 
  drive-by mode. Once you get the Ballas car in flames get away before it 
  blows up. Usually the car will blow up before any Ballas can get away.

  Now drive back to Sweet's house. Big Smoke has eaten all of the food 
  including Ryder's meal. After getting back to Sweet's house, take Big Smoke 
  back to his. He lives in Idlewood not far from Reece's BarberShop.

  After dropping him off, the mission ends.

Reward

  $200 plus Respect Gained. Sweet will call CJ and tell him that he needs to 
  build up his physique to get more respect. This will open up the Los Santos 
  Gym (plus the gyms in San Fierro and Las Venturas).

As mentioned in section A.9. Fat, Muscle Stats, and Gym List, there are
several activities you can do to acquire muscle mass.

But, more importantly, now that you've opened up the remaining three Gyms in
San Andreas, you can learn moves from the Boxing Trainer which is a
requirement for 100% Completion.

Get enough Muscle (past the Buff stage) and talk to the Boxing Trainer to
challenge him. Beat him and you will learn new moves from him.

The easiest way to beat him is to target him with the R1 button (PS2) or
Right Trigger (Xbox) and use the Triangle (PS2) or B (Xbox) button to punch
him around. Once you knock him down on the canvas, switch to the Circle
button (PS2) or continue with the B button (Xbox) and start stomping him.
Keep stomping him and you will beat him since stomping him won't let him get
off the canvas.

After beating the Boxing Trainer he will teach you the new moves.

You will also need to learn Martial Arts moves at the San Fierro Gym and
Kickboxing moves at the Las Venturas Gym (later in the game) for 100%
Completion.

The Plan

  CJ and Smoke head into Willowfield to find Emmet. After nearly getting 
  their heads blown off by him, you begin what is basically a training 
  mission.

  The instructions on the screen show you how to target with the Pistol. Just 
  follow along. This mission is easy but even easier if you managed to max 
  out your Pistol Skill beforehand.

  In addition, the Pistol used for this mission has unlimited ammo. According 
  to Odhita Kamayana, you can gain this Pistol by killing either Big Smoke or 
  Emmmet to fail the mission.

  Afterwards, head back to Big Smoke's house to drop him off. When you do, 
  you will get a call from Sweet who is upset that you haven't gotten some 
  colors yet. You will now be instructed to head over to the Binco store 
  nearby.

  The Families' color is green so I went and got the Green Hoody, Green 
  Jeans, and a Green Rag Back.

  After dressing up in the gang's colors and leaving the store, the mission 
  is successfully completed.

Reward

  Respect Gained. In addition, all of the ProLaps, Bincos, and SubUrbans open 
  up. Also, regardless of what Handgun you had before the mission (and 
  whatever amount of ammo it had), it will be replaced by the Pistol you used 
  in the mission (with minimum ammo). Plus, a Pistol Icon will open up at 
  Emmet's place.

  In addition, you also open up Big Smoke's set of missions but I will do 
  those later.

  Get in the car and drive into Ballas turf. After the short cutscene, drive

  You will also notice a status line indicating the health of the car. If you 
  get it too low, your car will be destroyed and the mission will be failed. 
  But you can break away from the carnage and go to the Idlewood Pay N' Spray 
  to get it repaired so you can go and finish things up.

  After getting rid of the first group of Ballas, a second group will appear 
  just north of where you finished the first one. After getting rid of the 
  second group, a third group will appear in Glen Park. After getting rid of 
  the third group, you will get a 2-Star Wanted Rating and you have to head 
  to the Idlewood Pay N' Spray to get rid of it.

  After removing the Wanted Rating, go back to Sweet's house to end the

  When using the Sniper Rifle, you can get out long before you get there and 
  snipe all five assailants from a distance without taking any damage.

  You can also get in close and use the SMG but you will probably lose some 
  armor in the process.

  After killing the assailants you will need a four-door car and place it in 
  the red circle. The Greenwood the Seville set was using in their attack is 
  perfect. Just get in and back up a little bit to get it in the red circle.

  But now the Seville set wants to give chase. Just go straight through the 
  group of cars before they can get going. Then make your way back to Sweet's 
  house to end the mission so he can settle some "unfinished business".

  Head over to a garage in Willowfield. Once you arrive there you will be 
  greeted by the garage owner who gives CJ a lowrider with hydralics as 
  payback for a favor he owes to Sweet. After getting the car, back it up 
  into the Mod Garage.

  Here you can customize the car any way you want. After customizing the car 
  head over to the lowrider meeting.

  When you get to the meeting you are asked to make a wager. After making the 
  wager you begin a rhythm based mini-game.

  You use your Right Analog Stick for this mini-game. At the bottom of the 
  screen is a circle. You will see arrows moving across the bottom of the 
  screen. You must move the stick in the direction of the arrow when the 
  arrow is in the circle. You gain points when you time things just right. 
  You must have more points than your opposition in order to win the wager. 
  Even if you're not good at rhythm games this isn't a difficult mission.

  After winning the wager CJ confronts Cesar. After some talking, Cesar 
  convinces CJ that he is good for Kendl and they shake hands.

Reward

  You need a lowrider for this race and the one you used in the previous

  There are five other cars with you and you must finish first to 
  successfully complete the mission. It should be noted that the lowrider 
  doesn't handle very well. When you smack into something, like a light pole, 
  you will end up being spun 180 degrees most of the time.

  When you start, you will head west toward Santa Maria Beach. When you get 
  onto the main road, go into the left side to avoid the other contestants. 
  When you turn right and head north along the wide road, go onto the left 
  side and as fast as possible to gain position. When you turn left at the 
  tunnel, you will go through a series of right and left turns. The last turn 
  will put you on the pier itself. If you are not too far behind, or better 
  still, ahead, then put the pedal to the metal to get to the finish line. If 
  you are behind it is possible to finish in first place by making a mad dash

  Get into the Boxville and head over to Colonel Furhberger's house in East

  When you get there, get inside the house to get the guns. You have to be 
  quiet while inside the house otherwise you wake up the Colonel and you fail 
  the mission. Trying to kill the Colonel will also fail the mission.

  There are five crates of guns in the house but you only need to steal 
  three. There's one in the living room, one in the kitchen, one at the top 
  of the stairs, one near the bedroom door, and one inside the bedroom.

  There's no bonus for getting all five so get the ones in the living room, 
  kitchen, and at the top of the stairs. Crouch and get the crates. While 
  crouching you can move faster without making sound. Once you pick up a 
  crate, you will stand and you must move slowly to prevent making noise. 
  Take the crate outside to the Boxville. Drop it into the truck by pressing 
  the Triangle button then head back inside.

  After getting all three, go to the dropoff garage in Playa Del Seville to 
  successfully end the mission.

  Ballas.

  After that get on the train. The train will begin to move. You now have to 
  throw crates from the train to Ryder following along in his truck. You use 
  the Target button to power up and throw. You have to hit Ryder to get the 
  crate in the truck. You also have to deposit ten crates and a minute and a 
  half to do it in.

  This is the hardest part of the mission. Ryder is a moving target and you 
  don't have a lot of time. He is fairly close for the first part of this 
  run. It gets harder as you move faster and along the curves. He will get 
  closer to you near the latter end of the tracks.

  Once you successfully get ten crates to Ryder, you will end up with a

The Plan

  Get into the truck and head over to Ocean Docks. Once you get into the red 
  circle you will see a small cutscene with the National Guard. Afterwards, 
  get out of the truck.

  Instead of heading to the gate, run back up the way and go around the large 
  building that is to your left when you park. Strangely enough, even though 
  this is supposed to be a military facilty, there are no walls between the 
  large building and the water so you can go around this building instead of 
  climbing the wall.

  Once you are near the armory, you will be attacked by guards. Kill the 
  three outside the armory and by the main gate. Then shoot the lock to the 
  armory and kill the two guards within. Also inside are four crates and a 
  Forklift.

  One of my readers, Joshua Frech, suggested to me that you can move the four 
  crates to the entrance of the armory and move two additional crates outside 
  to where the other four are before you let Ryder in. This will speed up the 
  loading process when he backs the van up so you can reduce damage to him 
  because all of the crates you need are right there ready to be loaded up.

  Use the Right Analog Stick to move the lift up and down on the Forklift. 
  You have to load the six crates into the truck. Get to a crate and lift the 
  crate about halfway up then drive to the back of the truck to deposit it.

  Ryder will stand guard and will be attacked by the guards from time to 
  time. When you either see a guard coming to attack or you hear shooting, 
  stop and exit the Forklift then kill the guard before he can kill Ryder. If 
  Ryder dies the mission is failed.

  After getting all six crates, CJ then gets back in the truck and you need 
  to go to the lockup where Emmet is at in Willowfield. The guards give chase 
  but they are pretty easy to lose even though you have the option to throw 
  crates off the truck to slow them down.

  After reaching the lockup safely, the mission ends.

Reward

  Respect Gained. In addition, this is the last mission for Ryder so now I 
  will move on to.....

The Plan

  Drive over to Los Santos Police HQ to pick up Jeffery, er, OG Loc. When you 
  finally see him you realize that he is a young high-strung gangster 
  wanna-be. He wants to take out some fool who has stolen his rhymes.

  Drive OG Loc over to East Los Santos. While driving there OG Loc will tell 
  you that his parole officer has lined him up with a job: "hygene 
  technician".

  Once you get to East Los Santos, ring the doorbell. The cutscene that plays 
  explains that OG Loc wants to take out the person inside, Freddy, not 
  because he has stolen his rhymes but took advantage of him when he "dropped 
  the soap".

  Now Freddy is making a run for it on his motorcycle. You and OG Loc now 
  give chase on the provided motorcycle. This part is hard because of the 
  long winding path Freddy takes to elude you. Fortunately, Freddy will slow 
  down in spots to allow you to catch up so he can taunt you. Still, if you 
  get slowed up a lot you will lose Freddy and fail the mission. Use your 
  SMG, in addition to OG Loc's machine gun, to kill Freddy.

  If you can't manage to kill Freddy during the chase, it will eventually end 
  at the basketball courts in East Los Santos. However, Freddy has three 
  other Vago friends and all four of them will fire on you. But it may be 
  easier to let the chase finish here than trying to kill Freddy during it 
  because he will be off his bike and standing still. Get off your bike and 
  kill all four, including Freddy, with your SMG.

  After killing Freddy, you now have to take OG Loc to his job which is the 
  Burger Shot in Marina. After dropping him off the mission ends.

Reward

  Big Smoke needs to pick up a cousin of his from Mexico and wants CJ to tag 
  along.....

The Plan
0======0
  When you get to the meet in East Los Santos you realize that Mary is really 
  shorthand for weed and Big Smoke wants to get some. The two guys they 
  approach are uncooperative so Big Smoke ambushes one of them with a 
  Baseball Bat.

  The other guy now runs and you have to chase him down. You also need to use 
  the Super Sprint feature to catch up to him. If you maxed out your Stamina, 
  this mission is really easy.

  Climb over the short fences, go north instead of following him to the 
  Liquor store (you will be shot at by some Vagos), and close in on him on 
  the railroad tracks. Target and kill him with your SMG to end the mission 
  successfully.

  Found a new way to do this mission.

The Plan
0======0
  When the mission starts, drive over to Unity Station. From there, you will 
  see some Vagos getting on the top of the train engine and make a getaway.

  After that, you are supposed to board the Sanchez, let Big Smoke get on,
  and chase the train so Big Smoke can shoot off the Vagos.

  The best way to do this is to stay on the right side of the right railroad 
  track. This will give Big Smoke the best angle to kill the Vagos quickly. 
  If done correctly he will be able to kill the last Vago shortly after 
  entering the tunnel. After killing the last Vago, take him home to complete 
  the mission.

  There is also an alternate method to completing this mission.

  When the cutscene with the Vagos getting on the train ends, get on the 
  Sanchez as quickly as possible and speed off WITHOUT letting Big Smoke on. 
  That's right, leave him behind. The first thing you will notice is that you 
  are going much faster without him riding with you so you can zip ahead of 
  the train. However, if you get too far ahead you will fail the mission. But 
  I am not going very far ahead anyway.

  Follow the track and go through the long left turn. Right after the turn is 
  a road crossing. Just to the left is a small ramp. This goes up to an 
  elevated walkway then to a wide bridge railing.  After climinbg that, you 
  will see another small ramp that will lead you to the top of the 24 Hour 
  Motel in Idlewood.

  Once you are on top of the Motel, get off the bike. From here you can jump 
  on top of the train as it passes. Don't get too close to the edge of the 
  roof though, you might jump over the train and land on the ground instead.

  If you make it to the top of the train, switch to your M4 then target and 
  shoot the Vagos. The Vagos are pretty tough (they will quite a few shots to 
  take down) but, because you are on top of the train instead of on the bike, 
  they will just stand there making it a lot easier to kill them.

  The M4 is easily the best weapon to take out the Vagos. It is powerful and 
  fast. And you do need to kill them quickly while on the train. Why? Because 
  if you don't kill them quickly you will be knocked off the train by a low 
  hanging pedestrian bridge in East Los Santos. It should be noted that you 
  can't use explosive weapons on the Vagos (even the Rocket Launcher).

  Once you kill the Vagos, jump off the train then grab another vehicle. Then 
  drive back to the ramp that leads up to the bridge rail and to the top of 
  the 24 Hour Motel to get your Sanchez so you can go pick up Big Smoke. Why 
  not just use the vehicle you have? Because Big Smoke won't get in any other 
  vehicle. You NEED to use the Sanchez because the game expects you to ride 
  with Big Smoke throughout the whole mission.

  Get back up to the Motel roof, get on the Sanchez, jump down to ground 
  level, and ride over to Unity Station to pick up Big Smoke. Then drive Big 
  Smoke over to his house to complete the mission.

  Big Smoke wants CJ to ride along with him for a little errand.....

Notes

  None.

The Plan
0======0
  Drive over to Downtown. Along the way Big Smoke will tell CJ about one of 
  his cousins who got laid out by some Russians. Big Smoke now wants some 
  payback.

  The place you end up at is the Atrium. After the cutscene, you now have to 
  barge in. When you do you will be assaulted by several Russians who are 
  trying to kill Big Smoke. You will also notice that whatever SubMachine Gun 
  you had in your inventory will be replaced by the Micro SMG. Having Hitman 
  Weapon Skill Level will also help you since that will allow you to 
  duel-wield the Micro SMG.

  After killing all of the Russians in the lobby, get the Body Armor Icon and 
  then follow Big Smoke outside. Now you have to kill more Russians. Quickly 
  target each one and kill them.

  Now the hardest part of the mission begins. You and Big Smoke are now on a 
  motorcycle with Big Smoke driving. You now have to shoot at the pursuing 
  Russians. They will come at you with motorcycles and cars. Your targets 
  will be constantly moving which is why this is difficult. The chase will 
  wind through the Downtown streets and continue through the flood control 
  channel. Then it will go through a tunnel and end at East Beach.

  You also have a bike health line to keep an eye on. If it is reduced to 
  zero, the bike will explode killing both of you and the mission will be 
  failed.

  When dealing with bikes, shoot the driver which will cause the bike to wipe 
  out. When dealing with cars, shoot the passenger. The driver will not 
  shoot. This will make it easier to pick through your targets. Take 
  advantage of explosive barrels when going through East Beach near the end 
  of the chase.

  If you manage to make it through in one piece the mission will be completed 
  successfully.

Reward
0====0
  Respect Gained. You will notice that you will end up with the Micro SMG 
  with 80 rounds of ammo. If you had a lot of ammo for your SubMachine Gun 
  prior to this mission, you will lose it. In addition, this will also end 
  Big Smoke's line of missions. I will now move on to.....

The Plan
0======0
  You need to pick this mission up between 22:00 and 6:00. After the 
  cutscene, head down to the beach party.

  When you get there, you have to talk to the DJ. There are no shortcuts 
  here. The van is locked, indestructable (which means you can't knock off 
  the doors and drive off), and you can't even move it by ramming a car into 
  it. And, of course, you can't kill anybody.

  Talk to the DJ and give two positive answers. This will start a dancing 
  mini-game. You use the four main buttons (X, Traingle, Square, and Circle 
  (PS2) - A, B, Y, X (Xbox)) for this one. Like the Lowrider mini-game in 
  "Cesar Vialpando" you have to press the correct button when it gets into 
  the circle. Timing each button right will get you the most points

  You need 4,000 points to progress further in the mission.

  There are some long chains of button presses during the middle and later 
  stages of the song. This is where you can trip up the most. If you don't 
  get 4,000 points you will fail the mission.

  The pattern never changes so if you fail you have a better idea of the 
  pattern so you can do better next time. Just focus on the bottom of the 
  screen and ignore everything else. This will make it a bit easier.

  Once you get 4,000+ points you are then invited into her office (which is 
  her van). Once inside the van, drive off and steal it. Now you have to take 
  it to a lockup in Commerce. The other partygoers will give chase so put the 
  pedal to the metal.

  Once the van is in the lockup the mission is completed successfully.

  You have to sneak inside the mansion where you found LS-Y2 and steal Madd 
  Dogg's Rhyme Book. Enter the mansion through the main entrance.

  This mission also provides a tutorial on stealth. You are forced to use the 
  Knife and can't switch to any other weapon at this point. Kill the first 
  guard. Then after being told on how to use the shadows, kill the second 
  guard. After hiding from the third guard, sneak out and stealth kill him.

  Now crouch and get past the next two guards. As you get near the Rhyme 
  Book, you will also find a room with Body Armor and a nearby guard. Kill 
  the guard and steal the Rhyme Book. After doing that you can now use your 
  other weapons. Switch to your Silenced Pistol. The guards will be carrying 
  Silenced Pistols from this point on so you can get some additional ammo 
  when you kill guards.

  If you take the time to explore the mansion you will find an exercise room, 
  Vidgame Machines, and additional Body Armor (on the second floor).

  Make your way back to the main entrance killing any guards along the way. 
  After exiting the mansion take the provided bike and ride back to the 
  Burger Shot to end the mission.

  Drive to the Burger Shot in Vinewood where one of the chauffeurs for Madd 
  Dogg's manager is eating. You have to steal his car and meet up with the 
  other drivers before 22:00. As you approach, you will see the car coming up 
  to a signal light. Hit the car to force out the driver. A slight smack on 
  the front bumper will do.

  Once the driver is out, get out and kill him with the weapon of your 
  choice. Get into the other car and go over to the nearby Pay N' Spray to 
  repair the damage. Afterwards you need to drive over to the awards ceremony 
  to pick up the manager. If you damage the car even in the slightest you 
  will have to go back to the Pay N' Spray.

  Once you meet up with the other drivers you will have to park in the red 
  circle as close to the curb as possible. Once you do that you will now 
  drive over to the ceremony keeping inbetween the two other cars in the 
  motorcade. Stop at the award ceremony to let in the manager. After the 
  cutscene, quickly drive off.

  Now you have to drive the car off the Verona Beach pier and the other cars 
  give chase. Use some of the alleyways to throw them off. Once on the pier, 
  go as fast as you can and jump out at the last second.

  Once the car hits the water and you are safely out of the vehicle, the 
  mission will end successfully.

The Plan

  OG Loc will suggest that you get new clothes and a haircut but you don't 
  need to do any of that. The party will start at 20:00 and end at 5:00. When 
  the time is at 20:00 you will get a phone call from OG Loc. CJ doesn't feel 
  like being there but OG Loc will state that there has been a disaster: the 
  mike is broken. So CJ changes his mind and decides to attend.

  But when CJ arrives he finds that they managed to find a replacement 
  microphone and OG Loc is doing his rapping. The problem is that OG Loc's 
  rapping is so awful that he has managed to drive the homies into the street 
  where they are chilling out.

  Suddenly another member of the Families comes up on a bike. The Ballas are 
  approaching with a large group and looking to attack. The Families gather 
  the homies and blockade the street with their cars as the Ballas approach. 
  Once the Ballas get to the blockade a shootout begins.

  Now you have to kill all of the Ballas. The first wave consists of the 
  group near the blockade. Another wave comes from the top of the bridge. The 
  last wave comes from the south and north part of the cul-de-sac. Despite 
  their numbers this isn't a very hard mission to do. If you have Hitman 
  Weapon Skill Level, this is a bit easier.

  Once you have killed the last Balla, the mission ends.

  Doing the Firefighter Mission and obtaining the Fireproof Feature will be 
  very helpful here.

Notes

The Plan

  Go and get the Molotovs in Downtown Los Santos. You are given 20 Molotovs 
  to do the mission with. Now drive over to the house in East Los Santos. You 
  have to throw the Molotovs through the five windows to destroy the house 
  and kill the gangbanger.

  There are several Vagos around the house. Just use the Molotovs against 
  them. If you run out of Molotovs, more will generate so you can complete 
  the mission. Having the Fireproof Feature will really help out here.

  After throwing Molotovs through all five windows, you will see a cutscene 
  of a girl in danger within the burning building. Now you have to rescue 
  her. Go into the house and make your way to the stairs in the back then to 
  her room. The flames are too intense but there is a Fire Extinguisher in 
  the downstairs kitchen. Go and get it. Go back up to her room and aim the 
  extinguisher and the base of the flame to put it out.

  Now the both of you have to get out of there but the house is collapsing. 
  The two of you have to go through several rooms to get out of the house 
  putting out some flames along the way. Make sure that the girl is behind 
  you as you progress through the house and toward the door.

  Once the two of you get out of the burning house you now take her to her 
  house just outside of Grove Street. As you park the car at her house you 
  find out her name: Denise Robinson. Once you drop her off, the mission will 
  end successfully.

Reward

  Balla friends. Sweet wants CJ to take over the Glen Park area and force out 
  the traitor. This mission can be picked up at the Downtown Ammu-Nation. I 
  will do this one later.

  Tweaked things a bit here.

The Plan
0======0
  Go over to the red circle near the warehouse at Ocean Docks. After the 
  cutscene, stay where you are and switch to your Sniper Rifle. Pick off all 
  of the guards as well as shoot the red barrels on the forklifts (which will 
  cause them to explode). Also shoot up the large van near the door (and make 
  it explode) to take care of any additional guards.

  After that, go up to the door, switch to your SMG, and shoot off the lock 
  to open the door. You will be greeted by three gunmen. Kill them and 
  proceed inside. You now have to get to the upper office but must go through 
  a few corridors on the lower level killing gunmen as you go.

  Once you get all of the gunmen, you are told to go up to the office where 
  the Russians and the Ballas are dealing. Go up the stairs and kill the 
  Balla in the entrance. Then enter the office to trigger the appearance of 
  the Russian. The Russian will run away and go out the door leading outside. 
  The Russian is heading to a point just outside where you entered the 
  building where a Banshee is waiting for him.

  If you chase the Russian you will be attacked by several guards wielding 
  SMGs. When the Russian gets to his Banshee he will speed off and you then 
  must give chase using a nearby motorcycle.

  But there is a better way. Instead of chasing the Russian when he leaves 
  the office, and dealing with the other Balla inside the office, turn 
  around, go back down the stairs, and out the building the way you came in. 
  When you exit, the Russian's Banshee will be right there at the entrance. 
  Take care of the nearby guard who is shooting at you. Get in the Banshee, 
  drive to near the road entrance, and turn around. When the Russian gets 
  near the entrance of the building, speed up and run him over to 
  successfully complete the mission.

Reward

  Drive over to the Downtown Ammu-Nation to pick up the mission. Go inside

  Next, go over to Glen Park. You will note that the Glen Park area is 
  colored purple in the radar. You are then instructed to start a gang war so 
  you can take over Glen Park.

  Kill about three Ballas to start a gang war. When the gang war starts, all 
  of the pedestrians and nearby cars disappear. In addition, Health and Body 
  Armor Icons will randomly appear in the streets surrounding the area.

  They will come in three waves. With each successive wave they get better 
  weapons. After destroying all three waves, you win the territory.

  It is best to find a place where they can only get at you through one path 
  so you can funnel them for easy kills. Backyards are pretty good for this.

  After completing the third wave, the traitor will come out of his house. 
  Chase him down and kill him to complete the mission.

  Respect Gained. In addition, you can now start taking over territories. 
  This isn't required for 100% Completion but it will gain you more money and 
  will make things easier. However, it is best to wait until later in the 
  game to start doing this for reasons I will explain later.

  You will also open up all of the Ammu-Nations and the Ammu-Nation 
  Challenge. But it is best to wait until after Las Venturas is opened up 
  before doing that because that is when all of the challenges are available. 
  At this point only two of the four Challenges are available.

The Plan

  The game will instruct you on how to recruit members. Switch to your Meele 
  Weapon and target the gang members. Press Up on the D-Pad to recruit them 
  for this mission. Get in the car and drive over to Los Sepulcros. You will 
  have about four minutes to get to the point on the radar.

  After getting there, you will have to jump the wall and join Sweet and the 
  other gang members. The person targeted for elimination is Kane and he will 
  be wearing Body Armor. Get your new members to follow you and attack Kane. 
  He will have friends at the funeral also so let your homies deal with them 
  so you can focus on Kane. Get him before he can get away. Because of the 
  armor, it will take quite a few rounds for you to kill him.

  Once you kill Kane, take care of the rest of the Ballas. Then get into the 
  car with Sweet making sure that the rest of the homies get in with you. 
  Then hightail back to Sweet's house to complete the mission (Pay N' Spray 
  is optional).

  Got some new info regarding the "Reuniting The Families" Exploit (explained 
  in the next section) from CDNW.

The Plan
0======0
  Drive over to the Jefferson Motel where the meeting is being held at. After 
  dropping off Sweet, the Los Santos Police Department barges in and starts 
  storming the place.

  Big Smoke and Ryder want to split but CJ needs to rescue Sweet. You are 
  then given a Shotgun aith plenty of ammo but I just switch back to my 
  trusty SMG.

  According to CDNW you can actually take advantage of the "Reuniting The 
  Families" Exploit at this point of the mission. Just kill all of the SWAT 
  guys and then leave. When you are done exploring, you can go back and enter 
  the Motel.

  Go into the Motel and to the upper level. When you turn the corner and 
  start going down the main hallway for Rooms 1-4 you will see a woman going 
  from right to left between rooms. If you go inside the room she went into 
  she will give you a kiss and restore your health.

  Sounds good doesn't it? Not really. Even though the game doesn't use a 
  number system for health I will, for the sake of example, say that your 
  maximum health at the start of the game is 100 points and that the absolute 
  maximum is 150. If your health is below 100 points, her kiss will bring it 
  back up to 100 points regardless of your current max health. However, if 
  your health is above 100 points, her kiss will bring it DOWN to 100 points. 
  This means that if your health is 130 points you will LOSE 30 points of 
  health by kissing her. My recommendation is to not kiss her unless your 
  health is real low. You can also use the Sprunk Machine at the beginning of 
  this stage to help restore your health.

  Take it slow and take care of the SWAT guys as they appear. At the next 
  corner, SWAT guys will rappel down from the skylight. There will also be 
  some more SWAT guys in the hallway for Rooms 5-8 that you need to take care 
  of. After killing them, go upstairs to the level above you for some Body 
  Armor. Proceed down the hallway for Rooms 5-8 and to the next corner. As 
  you get there, you will encounter some more SWAT (there are some on the 
  upper level as well) and another woman who will run past you. Follow her 
  for a kiss if you are low on health. Unlike the last corner there is no 
  Body Armor on the upper level.

  Proceed down the hallway for Rooms 9-12 and kill any SWAT that appear. 
  Sweet can be found on the room on the right at the end of the hallway. Once 
  you make it to Sweet, the next phase of the mission begins.

  Now the two of you are on the roof. You must deal with a helicopter with 
  four SWAT members hanging on the sides. Target and kill all four SWAT 
  members then focus on the helicopter itself. There is a health line for 
  Sweet and if it disappears he dies and the mission is failed. But you can 
  usually get through this with him not having any damage.

  After killing the four SWAT guys you can take advantage of the "Reuniting 
  The Families" Exploit here if you had already not done so. Kill the four 
  SWAT guys then leave the Motel area to explore.

  If you do not want to take advantage of the exploit, then go ahead and 
  destroy the SWAT chopper. After destroying the helicopter, the last phase 
  begins.

  Follow Sweet and go back down to ground level. Then Big Smoke and Ryder 
  show up. You can finally leave the motel but the police will give chase. 
  Now you have to protect the vehicle just like in the previous mission "Just 
  Business" (Big Smoke). You are also given an AK47 to use for this stage of 
  the mission.

  It's more difficult to hit the police gunmen but you can destroy their cars 
  pretty quickly. Focus near the gunman. If you can hit him, good. If you 
  can't, at least you can do damage to their car and destroy it which will 
  damage and slow down the other pursuers.

  The path is a long and winding one with the targets constantly shifting. 
  You also have to keep your eye on the car health meter. If it disappears, 
  the car is destroyed and the mission is failed.

  When the gun jams, you are at the end of the path. Watch the cinematic and 
  afterwards the mission is completed.

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

While perusing the GameFAQs San Andreas message boards I came across this
thread with the title "Go Anywhere You Want At Start Of Game...Sorta" from
someone named "The Chadness". In this thread he posted the following message:

     "During the mission "Reuniting The Families" you can go wherever you 
      want with no wanted level. Swim North for Las Venturas or to the side 
      for San Fierro. There will be no vehicles besides spawned onces so you 
      will have lots of running to do. I did this during the part where you 
      follow Sweet, but dont. Jump over the rail or something and dont go 
      near him AFTER taking care of enemies.

     "In San Fierro there is an airport and next to this is an army base you 
      would get a 5 star wanted level from but not this time. Get a Patriot 
      here, and you may also have acess to the aircraft carrier with jets. In 
      Venturas, out in the desert, where you see some white buildings 
      surrounded by road and dirt paths is "restricted area" with tanks and 
      jets and you would usually get 5 star wanted level there too."

Intrigued, I gave this a try. And it works like a charm. You can go ANYWHERE
in San Andreas without a Wanted Rating. And, just like in the message, that
includes military areas.

In addition, there are no cars or pedestrians in the streets. This exploit
turns San Andreas into a ghost town. There will parked cars and motorcycles
in parking lots so you can always grab a ride.

This exploit, which I will shorthand to "RTF-Exploit", is perfect for
exploring the entire San Andreas area. I spent a lot of time finding most of
the Weapon Icon locations, all of the Photo-Op locations, and the Horseshoe
locations (as well as acquiring the Horseshoes and Photo-Ops).

While there are some things you can do, there are things you can't do such
as:

  --enter Gyms (they don't even appear on the map).
  --do Challenges (such as the NRG-500 Challenge).
  --Arena Events.

But you can enter restaurants, casinos, and police stations. You can kill all
of the people in these places and not get into trouble (even in police
stations - but you'll have to deal with the guards in the casinos and strip
clubs).

There are two ways to take advantage of this exploit.

The first one is right after the cutscene of the cops raiding the Motel. Just
leave the area when you regain control and ignore the SWAT.

The second way to take advantage of this exploit is when you are on the roof
with Sweet, kill the SWAT guys on the chopper BUT leave the chopper alone.
Jump off the roof or go down the stairs to begin exploring. Don't worry about
Sweet, he'll be okay. He'll eventually shoot the chopper down himself and 
will wait for you to come back.

Even if you don't wish to do a lot of things around San Andreas, there is
some things I highly recommend you do. As you already know, you get at least
a 4-Star Wanted Rating by going near the Easter Bay Naval Station in San 
Fierro. There are two Oysters, one Photo-Op, and a Patriot you will need to
acquire for later use.

With the Wanted Ratings disabled this is the best time to get everything
there so you don't have to worry about it later. First, go and get a
Parachute (if you already have maximum Flying Skill skip this step) and a
Camera. Go to Los Santos International Airport and get either a Dodo or
Shamal and fly to the Aircraft Carrier. Jump out and land on the deck of the
carrier.

Switch to your Camera and press Target. Aim toward the bridge. Through the
camera lens you should see a violet icon with a camera symbol. This is the
Photo-Op Icon. You need to take a picture of the Icon with the Camera to
acquire the Photo-Op. There are 50 such Icons in the San Fierro and
surrounding areas. I will go into more detail about these later but for now
zoom in on the Icon and press Fire Weapon to get.....

[P15] - The bridge of the Aircraft Carrier at Easter Basin Naval Station.

I should note that you can get this Icon from a much safer area but why not
just get this one now and get it over with? Next, jump into the water and get
the next two Oysters:

[SF-Y17] - Underneath the front of the Aircraft Carrier.

[SF-Y24] - In the middle dock of the covered boathouse southwest of SF-Y17.

Next, get out of the water and go back into the Naval Station. Near the
Aircraft Carrier is a parked Patriot. Grab it and head toward Cranberry
Station which is southwest of the Naval Station (check your game map). Across
the street and west of Cranberry Station is a construction area. On the
southeast part of the site (and directly across the street from the station)
is what appears to be a ruined Xoomer Gas Station.

However, the garage is still functional and you can put cars into it. Put the
Patriot in the Xoomer Garage for future use. And for what use? For one of the
vehicle lists you will need to do later in the game. By getting the Patriot
now you will make your life a bit easier later on by not having to deal with
the military when you need to get one.

By the way, do NOT put any other vehicle in with the Patriot in this garage.
I made the mistake of doing that when I got to San Fierro and the damn garage
ate my Patriot!

When you are finished exploring and doing the things you want to do, head
back to Sweet and finish "Reuniting The Families".

Overview

  Bolstered by their recent successes, Sweet wants to gather the homies and 
  do some major banging on the Ballas. They're going to meet under the 
  Mulholland Intersection and Sweet wants CJ to get armed. As CJ leaves, he 
  gets a call from Cesar who has something very important to show him. With 
  some reluctance, CJ agrees to meet him.....

  SMG, MiniGun (optional).

  None.

The Plan
0======0
  Go to the blip under the freeway which starts a cinematic. Cesar points to 
  an area just across the street. CJ is unimpressed when two Ballas come out 
  of a door. But he is later shocked when he sees Big Smoke and Ryder 
  following them. Then out comes Officer Tenpenny and a green Sabre. The same 
  green Sabre that was seen at the time of Mrs. Johnson's murder. Big Smoke 
  has sold the Families out and CJ needs to tell Sweet of his treachery.

  CJ then suddenly realizes that Sweet is walking into a trap. He tells Cesar 
  to get Kendl and find a safe place. Now CJ must get to Sweet before he is 
  killed.

  Get out of the car and get back into the car you came up with. Get to the 
  Mulholland Intersection as fast as you can. There is a Sweet health line. 
  If it disappears, Sweet dies and the mission is failed. However, you still 
  can get there in plenty of time to save him.

  When you get there, CJ tells Sweet of Big Smoke's betrayal. Sweet wants CJ 
  to get out of there but CJ refuses. He is tired of running and now is going 
  to fight back.

  Now you have to kill all of the Ballas. There are many of them outside of 
  their cars. A full health bar and full armor is pretty much required for 
  this mission. Quickly target and kill the Ballas. After that, another 
  Ballas car will show up. Kill all of the Ballas and another Ballas car will 
  show up. Kill those Ballas and you will complete the mission.

  If you took advantage of the RTF-Exploit and acquired a MiniGun, this 
  mission becomes much easier since you can easily blow up the Balla cars 
  before any of them can get out.

  The police finally show up and both CJ and Sweet are captured. This leads 
  into.....

CJ finds himself inside a police car with Officers Tenpenny and Pulaski. He
has been hooded so he couldn't see where he was being taken. When the hood is
removed, CJ finds himself in a remote area.

CJ is also informed that Sweet is in a prison hospital recovering from his
wounds and is awaiting trial. He also finds out that Big Smoke has been
working for Tenpenny for a long time and that street loyalty is nonexistant.

Tenpenny then gives CJ a Camera and a assignment. He wants CJ to kill a
snitch somewhere near Mount Chiliad and wants evidence of the kill. If CJ
disobeys, Sweet will face a hard time in prison. CJ has no choice but to do
Tenpenny's bidding. And now the next phase of the story begins.....

You are now in Angel Pine which is in Whetstone County of the Badlands
region. As of right now the Badlands / San Fierro area is officially open and
ready for exploration.

As you look on the in-game map, all of the Safehouses in Red County that you
couldn't have earlier are now ready for purchase. You can also go back to Los
Santos if you want. You will also find that all of the territories that Grove
Street Families had will be lost. So if you went and took over territories
after "Doberman", your efforts will be wasted.

All of your weapons are gone but there is a Ammu-Nation in Angel Pine so you
can get them back. You should also go back to Los Santos and get the Sniper
Rifle since that should be handy for the next mission.

You are given a free Safehouse near the C.R.A.S.H. icon and there is another
Safehouse in Angel Pine that you can, and should, purchase. Now is time to
save the game and start exploring this region of San Andreas.

The Badlands area is sparsely populated and very hilly. A good place to get
away from it all. The main landmark is the largest mountain in San Andreas:
Mount Chiliad. The largest town in Badlands is the small town of Angel Pine
and this is where you start out at for the next phase of the story.

San Fierro, based on San Francisco, is to the north of the Badlands area. A
tightly packed and hilly metropolis. Very diverse in their neighborhoods and
very liberal in their attitudes. With lots of things to see and do it is a
tourist paradise.

 \=========================================================================/

At the top of Mount Chiliad, just north of Angel Pine, is a Mountain Bike. If
you get on it between 7:00 and 18:00 you will trigger the Chiliad Challenge.

The Challenge consists of three downhill bike races. You must finish first in
one race before you can do the next. By successfully completing all three
races you will inch closer to 100% Completion.

The higher your Cycling Skill, the easier this will become because you won't
fall off your bike as easily.

The first race is the Scotch Bonnet Yellow Route. You go up against five
other bikers in this race.

It will take some time to get used to the bike as you go downhill. It may be
tempting to pedal really fast on the straightaways but that will cause you to
wipe out at the curves and lose position. Let gravity speed you along and
brake carefully at the curves. This will allow you to keep up with the pack
or keep you ahead if you are in front.

There are guardrails to keep you from flying off the course and if you are
unlucky to fall off you will be placed near where you tumbled.

And, no, you can't use your machine gun on the other competitors. You will be
automatically disqualified if you do.

When you start to see Angle Pine, you are nearing the end of the race. There
is one last hairpin turn to make before going on a long straightaway to the
Finish Line. Here you can cut loose to get ahead or stay ahead.

The second race is the Birdseye Winder. Like the first race you go up against
five other bikers.

The same strategy applies to this course as in the last one. One difference
in this course is that there are no guardrails for most of the race so you
will need to be more careful so you don't fly off.

The third and final race is the Cobra Run. Here you go up against just two
other bikers and you start way behind them.

This course is shorter but harder. You will need to use your brake a lot
because of the wooden walkway you have to go on in the first part of the
course. After that, it gets easier. Once you navigate the one hairpin turn on
the course, you can start to speed up since the course will straighten out
and you can catch up to the other competitors so you can finish first.

If you get frustrated trying to win any of these races, there is a sneaky
method you can use to win the race (as posted on the GameFAQs Message Boards
by TheLegendaryOne).

Let all of your competitors finish ahead of you. Stop just short of the
Finish Line. The race doesn't end until you cross the line. Look ahead of you
and you should see your opponents sitting there. Get off your bike and use
your Sniper Rifle to snipe them. You can get disqualified for shooting them
during the race but once they cross the Finish Line you can do what you want
to them. You will notice as you kill each competitor you will climb up in the
standings. Once you kill all of them you will be in first place. Get back on
the bike and cross the line to finish first and win the race.

For those who decided to wait until getting to the San Fierro area to get
Oysters, here is the Oyster list:

[SF-Y16] - On the south side of the south support tower for the Gant Bridge.

[SF-Y17] - Underneath the front of the Aircraft Carrier at Easter Basin Naval 
           Station (if you waited until now to try to get it you will get a 
           least a 4-Star Wanted Rating. Best acquired with the RTF-Exploit 
           covered earlier).

[SF-Y18] - Under the stern of the ship southwest of SF-Y24. Hug the wall of 
           the runway while heading to the Oyster and back after collecting 
           it.

[SF-Y19] - Under the ship northeast of San Fierro.

[SF-Y20] - Under the stern of the ship east of the Gant bridge.

[SF-Y24] - In the middle dock of the covered boathouse southwest of SF-Y17 at 
           the Easter Basin Naval Station (if you waited until now to try to 
           get it you will get a least a 4-Star Wanted Rating. Best acquired 
           with the RTF-Exploit covered earlier).

| C.I.4. San Fierro Photo-Ops                                               |
0===========================================================================0

Scattered around the San Fierro and surrounding areas is what is known as
Photo-Ops. There are fifty of them and they can only be had by using a
Camera. You can only see the Photo-Op icon by looking through the Camera. The
Photo-Ops are easier to spot during the nighttime because they will be
glowing purple clouds in front of certain places.

The best time to do Photo-Ops (other that using the RTF-Exploit) is after
completing "The Green Sabre" (Sweet Johnson) but before doing "Badlands"
(C.R.A.S.H.). Here you are given a Camera with an unlimited roll of film so
you don't have to worry about trying to find Camera Icons to refill your
Camera.

Once you find a Photo-Op, zoom in a little and click the Camera to acquire
it. On some Photo-Ops you don't have to actually see it to get it (this is
handy when doing long range shots) while others are a little bit picky.

Another neat thing about Photo-Ops is that, if you stand in the right place,
you can acquire more than one. Then it's just a matter of rotating to the
right angles. This will save time.

The Photo-Op list here will tell you where to stand to get the most Icons at
one time. I should point out that while playing through the Xbox version I
found that you can get more Icons at certain locations that what I have
written here. It is even possible to get three Photo-Op Icons while still
confined to the Los Santos / Red County area.

However, I have decided not the change this list. There are so many ways to
get most of these Icons that it would be very difficult to find the absolute
best way to get them all. This list is as good as any to acquire the Photo-Op
Icons.

The Photo-Op list is based on the numbering system within the Brady Guide
(Xbox / PC version) on pages 133-135.

You will get $100 per Icon and a $100,000 bonus for getting all 50. You will
also spawn the following Weapon Icons at the Xoomer Garage (across from
Cranberry Station) where you start your San Fierro missions later on:

  --Grenades
  --Sniper Rifle
  --Shotgun
  --Micro SMG

Here is the Photo-Op list:

[P1] - High and on the west side of the large transmission tower on the top 
        of Missionary Hill.

[P2] and [P8] - Go to the Avispa Country Club. Go to the parking lot by the 
        tennis courts. Find the lightpost in the northeast corner of the 
        parking lot. Find the yellow parking line at the edge of the 
        sidewalk. Walk to the end of the yellow line. Look north at the 
        tennis courts. To the left of the lightpost is P8 which is floating 
        above the tennis courts. After acquiring P8 rotate until you are 
        looking at the main entrance to the south. Look way up above the 
        entrance and near the top of the tower is P2. Zoom in and acquire 
        it.

[P3] - In front of the sign above the entrance to Easter Bay Airport.

[P4] - The clock tower of the building just north of the Garver Bridge in 
       east Downtown.

[P6] - Above the Xoomer Gas Station sign in Easter Basin.

[P7] - Between the two white tanks on the south portion of Shady / Solarin 
       Industries in Doherty.

[P9] - Near the top of the dome (west side) of the main City Hall building.

[P10] - In the middle of the giant doughnut on top of Tuff Nuts Donuts in 
        Palisades.

[P11] and [P12] - P11 is on the south side of the south support tower for the 
        Gant Bridge. You must get up close to the roadblock so you can see 
        the Photo-Op Icon. Go up to where the roadblock meets up to the 
        railing on the right side. Zoom in on the support tower to get P11. 
        Then rotate until you are looking at the ship to the east. P12 is 
        near the top of the mast for the ship. Zoom in all the way to the top 
        of the mast. Even though you can't see it you can still get P12.

[P13] - Conning tower of USS Numnutz in Esplanade North.

[P14] and [P5] - Go to the roadblock on the Garver Bridge. Stand in front of 
        the left stop sign. P14 is in front of the lower part of the west 
        side of the west support tower for the Garver Bridge. P5 is on the 
        left side of the top of the east support tower for the Garver Bridge. 
        Find and get P14. Then zoom in all the way at the top of the left 
        side of the east support tower and get P5.

[P15] - The bridge of the Aircraft Carrier at Easter Basin Naval Station. You 
        can either land on the deck when doing the "Reuniting The Families" 
        exploit or you can go to the end of the Easter Bay Airport runway 
        (and zoom in fully on the bridge of the carrier) to acquire this 
        Photo-Op.

[P16] - Near the top but just underneath the shelter that goes across the 
        two railroad tracks at Cranberry Station.

[P17], [P19], and [P36] - At the top of the tall stairstepping L-shaped 
        building in northeast King's just northwest of Wang's Autos (it 
        should have four poles close together at the middle on top). Go to 
        the roof in a helicopter and land at one of the ends of the building. 
        Go to the edge of the roof in the southwest corner. Aim above the 
        poles and you should see P19. After getting P19, rotate until you are 
        facing west. Look down and you should see a old looking tower. Zoom 
        in on it and you should see P17. After acquiring P17, look south. You 
        should see a large construction crane for the Construction Site in 
        Doherty. Zoom in at the top and angle upwards so that the back of the 
        top of the crane is near the center of the frame. P36 is hidden by 
        the top of the crane but you can still acquire it from here.

[P20] - Inside the sculpture within ZomboTech in Downtown.

[P21] and [P25] - Get to the crooked road east of the Calton Heights 
        Safehouse. Starting at the top (west side), get just past the first 
        hairpin turn. Look east and downward and you will see P21. After 
        getting P21, look up a little and zoom in a bit. You should see a 
        statue of a baseball player on top of a column. P25 is in front of it 
        but if you zoom in all the way you can acquire it from here.

[P22] - In front of rotating Burger Shot sign in Juniper Hollow.

[P23] - Above the lamppost at the east tunnel entrance near the Church in 
        Calton Heights.

[P24] - Above the transmission tower on the skyscraper just north of the Big 
        Pointy Building in Financial. Use a helicopter and land on top of the 
        building just to the east of the Big Pointy Building. Then point 
        northwest at the top of the transmission tower to acquire the 
        Photo-Op.

[P26] - On north part of tall building in the north part of Financial two 
        blocks east of the Calton Heights Church. Best way to get this 
        Photo-Op is to go into the park just east of the Church and angle 
        upward with the Camera.

[P27] and [P47] - Go to Pier 69 in Esplanade North. Now go across the street 
        from the entrance and stand on the street corner. P27 is in front of 
        the Pier 69 sign. To the right of Pier 69 is a large rock formation. 
        P47 is floating above the center. Get P27 then angle right and zoom 
        in to get P47 even though you can't see it from here.

[P28] and [P18] - Go to the Trolley Station south of P38. Go to where the two 
        circular track rotaters are. Stand east of the tracks but where you 
        are inbetween the two doors for the Station. If you're positioned 
        correctly you should see a chimney to the west. The chimney is on the 
        west side of the Trolley Station and P28 is above it. Zoom in and 
        acquire the Photo-Op. Now rotate until you are looking north up the 
        street. You should see a white building with green and red chinese 
        trim on it. P18 is in front of the building at the corner. Zoom in 
        and acquire P18.

[P29] - Above the SupaSave entrance in Juniper Hill.

[P30] - Above entrance to City Hall.

[P31] - High above the north end of the main bridge connecting Mount Chiliad 
        to San Fierro.

[P32] and [P33] - Get a helicopter and fly to Foster Valley. You'll see a 
        group of five circular office buildings. Land on top of the middle 
        building. Look north and you should see P32 which is floating above 
        the building next to yours. After acquiring P32 look to the 
        northeast. You should see another building. This is the shopping 
        complex for Foster Valley. You should also see the freeway bridge 
        just beyond it. Along the middle of the building is glass half-dome. 
        Now look at the bridge supports. Find the bridge support that 
        connects with the glass half-dome near the bottom of the support. Now 
        put the center of the camera just to the right of the right side of 
        the support. Zoom in a bit and click the camera. P33 is floating 
        above the north end of the shopping complex and even though you can't 
        see it from here you can still acquire the Photo-Op.

[P34] - Above the north end of the bridge that connects the Badlands to the 
        Panopticon.

[P35] - High above the south side of the drydock building where you pick up 
        the NRG-500 Challenge. Go close to the nearby ship and look back 
        toward the building. You should see it floating high above the 
        opening. A better way is to use a helicopter and land on the drydock 
        roof then get the Photo-Op Icon.

[P37] - Near ground level in front of the Vank Hoff Hotel in Queens.

[P38] - Above the Chinatown Gateway just west of the Chinatown Safehouse.

[P39] - Behind (northwest side) of the Vank Hoff Hotel in Queens.

[P40] - In between the gas tanks at the northeast side of Easter Bay Airport 
        (directly above the Heat-Seeking Rocket Launcher Icon and east of 
        P41).

[P41] - At the very top of the main control tower for Easter Bay Airport 
        (near the main runway).

[P42] - Floating above the Hashbury & Garcia Joint Festival banner in east 
        Hashbury (where the "Piece of Peace" store is).

[P43] - Above the entrance to Queens Movie Theater in Queens.

[P44], [P45], and [P46] - Go to the Hippy Shopper in south Queens (where you 
        do the Hippy Shopper Courier Mission). Go to the street corner near 
        where the bike is parked. Position yourself near the edge of the 
        sidewalk and in alignment with the telephone pole. Look straight 
        south and slightly upwards. You should see P46 floating in front of 
        the Hippy Shopper and just slightly left of the telephone pole. 
        However, if you look a little closer and slightly below P46 you can 
        see another Photo-Op Icon. This is P44 which floats above the lower 
        level of the Cemetary just south of here. If you rotate slightly to 
        the southwest you can see a large building with a spire on top. This 
        is the Ocean Flats Church. Zoom in at the top at the base of the 
        spire. Now click the camera. P45 is near the top of the Church and by 
        aiming this way you have just acquired it. Look back left and acquire 
        P46 then aim lower and zoom in to get P44.

[P48] - Above home plate for the Baseball Diamond (north) in the park at 
        Garcia.

[P49] - In front of the FinalBuild Construction sign for the construction 
        project north of the Garcia Cluckin' Bell. The icon is in front of 
        the sign on the north side of the project.

[P50] - Between the two white buildings in Downtown. Go to the Downtown 
        Cluckin' Bell. Turn southeast until you see the two white buildings 
        (the short one on the left and the tall one on the right. Go 
        southeast on onto the raised area. Go to the other side of the raised 
        area and aim the camera between the buildings.

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

In Queens, parked outside the Hippy Shopper, is a bike (Freeway). By getting
on the Freeway you activate the Hippy Shopper Courier Asset Mission. Like the
Commerce 24-7 Courier Asset Mission in Los Santos you are required to drop
off packages at various places around San Fierro then head back to the Hippy
Shopper to complete the run.

Doing the four runs for this Asset Mission won't take too long because the
Freeway is faster than the BMX. A high Bike Skill is helpful so you don't
fall off should you wreck.

Just like in the Commerce 24-7 Courier Asset Mission you have to throw
packages through the red coronas shown on your map. You have do this Drive-By
style using the Look Left and Look Right buttons in conjunction with the
Attack Button. If you miss you can get a second chance by picking up the
package and trying again. Part of your score is determined by how many
packages you bring back to the Hippy Shopper when you complete a level.

There are a total of four runs to complete:

Run #1
******
  --Coronas = 3
  --Packages = 6
  --Time Limit = 3 minutes

Run #2
******
  --Coronas = 4
  --Packages = 6
  --Time Limit = 5 minutes

Run #3
******
  --Coronas = 5
  --Packages = 7
  --Time Limit = 5 minutes

Run #4
******
  --Coronas = 6
  --Packages = 8
  --Time Limit = 7 minutes

For the last run go south toward the Avispa Country Club to get the one there
then head northeast to get some more. Then head west to get the rest then
back to the Hippy Shopper to complete the last run.

Upon completion you gain a Money Icon outside the Hippy Shopper and it will
max out at $2,000.

Back where you get P40 is a drydock. Near some crates by the edge, and under
the roof, is a NRG-500 bike. Getting on it will trigger the NRG-500
Challenge. There are 18 Coronas that must be picked up to successfully
complete the Challenge.

You start with ten seconds and get ten additional seconds for each Corona
picked up.

Most of them are on the ground or by a wall and are easy to get. However,
there are seven Coronas high above the edge and you must zoom up the wall and
fly up to get them.

Get all of the ones on the ground first to get enough time so you can go
after the ones in the air. Getting the ones in the air is pretty tough
(because they can be hard to line up and get the correct speed to get up and
acquire them) and it may take you several tries before successfully
completing this Challenge.

Successfully completing this Challenge will inch you closer to 100%
Completion.

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Down in the southern part of San Fierro is Corvin Stadium. Here you can do an
Arena Event known as the BloodBowl.

The event is similar to the BloodRing event in Vice City. You start with a
thirty second timer which counts down. You then go around collecting markers,
while getting knocked around by other cars, to get additional time to push
your total time over a minute so you can successfully complete the event. It
was pretty easy to do in Vice City.

But the BloodBowl is much harder. For starters, each car, including yours,
has a gunman that will shoot at other competitors. Of course, you are being
shot at by others. There are repair icons that appear from time to time that
will allow you to repair your vehicle.

But the main reason this is much harder is because the marker will constantly
jump around the place making it difficult for you to get. This is because of
the other cars aggressively going after the markers and getting them before
you do. Don't be surprised if you go through several straight attempts before
you can actually get any markers.

The best thing to do is just focus on the markers and not on trying to
destroy any cars. Any car that is destroyed will be immediately replaced.
Don't go out of your way to get repair icons unless you are seriously
damaged.

Once you successfully complete the BloodBowl you will inch closer to 100%
Completion and the Bloodring Banger will spawn outside Corvin Stadium.

  Carl now has to go and kill a snitch hiding somewhere on Mount Chiliad and 
  take pictures as proof.....

Weapons
0=====0
  Sniper Rifle, SMG.

Prep Work
0=======0
  Reacquire a Sniper Rifle and about 15+ rounds.

Notes

  None.

The Plan
0======0
  Get on the nearby Sanchez (if there is not one then get a nearby car) and 
  go to the blip near the base of the mountain. From there, go up to where 
  the yellow blip is (if you do not have a Sanchez, get one from the building 
  by the Finish Line for the Mount Chiliad Challenge).

  As you get near the house, you'll see that it is guarded by four FBI 
  agents. Stay as close to the west edge of the plateau as possible and stop 
  at a point northwest of the house. Get off and use the Camera to look at 
  the house. If you stopped correctly, you should see the snitch through the 
  door.

  Switch to your Sniper Rifle. IMPORTANT: Aim for the body NOT the head. If 
  you shoot him in the head you will blow it off rendering him unidentifiable 
  and you will fail the mission. After killing the snitch, zoom out a little 
  bit. The four FBI agents will make a beeline straight for you and will come 
  into view of your sniper scope. Pick them off as they appear.

  After killing the agents, go over to the dead snitch, switch to your Camera 
  and take pictures. Then go back out, get on the bike, and head for the
  dropoff point to complete the mission.

Reward

When Carl arrives at the diner, he finds a fiery hispanic woman fending off a
couple of rednecks. After they exit she introduces herself as Catalina. Yes,
THAT Catalina. The same one from GTA3 and she is every bit as bitchy here as
she was in Liberty City.

As they drive off, she informs Carl that she plans to take this county "for
every stinking cent". She has cased four soft targets to rob:

  --A Liquor Store in Blueberry.
  --A Bank in Palomino Creek.
  --A Betting Shop in Montgomery.
  --A Gas Station in Dillimore.

The thing here is that you can hit these targets in any order. But I'm going
to go for the nearest target which happens to be the Gas Station.....

  Carl and Catalina try to rob the Gas Station but are thwarted by the

  Heat-Seeking Rocket Launcher (optional), Remote Grenades (optional).

Prep Work
0=======0
  None.

Notes

  Found another method to doing this mission.

The Plan
0======0
  Get in the truck. The game will then instruct you on how to hook up the 
  truck with the gas tank. After hooking the truck up, speed down the street 
  ahead of you and take a right.

  The destination is in Flint County but the path is pretty straightforward. 
  The station attendants will give chase and try to stop you but if you can 
  get a good enough speed they will not be able to do much of anything.

  However, if you're having trouble dealing with the attendants, you can get 
  rid of them before driving off. Once you have attached the cab to the truck 
  the attendants will give chase.

  Get out of the cab and run across the street. The attendants will be trying 
  to detach the cab. Switch to your Heat-Seeking Rocket Launcher, lock onto 
  the car, and wait for it to turn red. When they start backing away to try 
  again, launch the rocket. It should hit the car when it is far enough away 
  from the cab so you don't damage the cab in the explosion. 

  Another option is to use the Remote Grenades. Toss one onto the back end of 
  the attendant's car while he is underneath the tanker. Run far enough away 
  and switch to the Detonator. When he backs out to try again, detonate the 
  Remote Grenade when he is safely away from the tanker.

  Once the attendant's car has been destroyed, get back in the cab and drive 
  off uncontested. When you get to the RS Haul in Flint County, the mission 
  is successfully completed.

Reward
0====0
  $5,000. You will also get a call from someone called The Truth. He is an 
  associate of Officer Tenpenny and you can meet him at a hotel in Angel 
  Pine. You will also open up the.....

| C.II.1. RS Haul Trucking Asset Mission (Part One)                         |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

You pick up the Trucking Missions where you dropped off the tanker at the end
of "Tanker Commander" (just north of the Flint Intersection in Flint County).
They are fairly straightforward missions where you transport stuff to another
city or town. There is a bonus to be had at the end of a mission and it
increases with each mission.

There are a total of eight missions but the last two are only available after
you open up the Desert / Las Venturas area. But I will do the first six now
so I will only have to worry about two later.

There are three types of missions:

>>Timed - You must reach your destination within a time limit otherwise you 
          will lose money.

>>Fragile - You will lose money if you damage the cargo.

>>Chase - The cops are on your tail and they will try to stop you by forcing 
          you off the road or disconnecting your trailer.

Mission #1
**********
  --Type = Timed (2:15).
  --Bonus = $1,000.
  --Notes: The destination is usually somewhere closeby in Red County so this 
           is pretty simple.

Mission #2
**********
  --Type = Fragile.
  --Bonus = $1,500.
  --Notes: Your destination is still farily close but you will still need to 
           be careful about your cargo.

Mission #3
**********
  --Type = Chase (3-Star Wanted Rating).
  --Bonus = $2,000.
  --Notes: Despite your truck's size, the police cars are pretty good at 
           knocking you around. However, you can easily fool them into 
           hitting roadside obstacles, like trees.

Mission #4
**********
  --Type = Timed (6:00).
  --Bonus = $3,000.
  --Notes: Your destination is further out this time but not too hard.

Mission #5
**********
  --Type = Fragile.
  --Bonus = $4,000.
  --Notes: Your destination is further out this time so more care is needed 
           to keep from damaging the cargo.

Mission #6
**********
  --Type = Chase (3-Star Wanted Rating).
  --Bonus = $5,000.
  --Notes: The further you destination is, the harder this becomes. This is 
           especially true if your destination is Battery Point (San Fierro).

After completing the sixth mission I can go no further in the trucking
missions until later in the game. After saving my game in Angel Pine I will
now turn my attention to.....

government conspiracies.

Overview

  When Carl enters the hotel room he finds Officer Tenpenny traveling back in 
  time to the Stoned Age. Tenpenny manages to introduce Carl to The Truth 
  despite being wasted. The Truth is upset about a survivalist farm 
  disturbing his peace and wants Carl to get a harvesting machine from 
  them.....

Notes

  Back when they were still known as DMA Design, Rockstar North released a 
  game for the N64. In it, you had to save the earth from a relentless alien 
  species that had eaten mankind to the brink of extinction.

  You had to go back in time to various points and stop them. You had large 
  countrysides to explore and you could grab any vehicle you needed to use 
  plus you had to do various missions in order to stop the invasions. Sound 
  familiar? You could say that the seeds for what would be later known as 
  "Grand Theft Auto 3" were planted here.

  And the name of this game?....."Body Harvest".

The Plan
0======0
  Get to the blip just outside the farm. You are then instructed to get the 
  Combine Harvester near the back of the farm. You are also supposed to go 
  through the farm, and take out the various workers, to get to the 
  harvester.

  However, I am going to go through the back way. Just to the northeast of 
  this position is a tunnel that runs northwest and under the farm. Once you 
  exit the tunnel, go up the hill to the farming area where the harvester is 
  at.

  When the harvestor is close enough, jump over the wall and run to it then 
  jack it. Once you get the harvester, go down the dirt road, running over 
  the workers as you go, and back to the road. Turn east and then turn south 
  onto the next dirt road. Then follow this road back to The Truth's farm to 
  successfully complete the mission.

Reward
0====0
  Respect Gained. In addition, you can now buy Rifles and Remote Explosives 
  at all Ammu-Nations.

  You will also get a call from Cesar. Things have gone real bad in Los 
  Santos and there's a price on his head. Carl tells him to get himself and 
  Kendl out of the city and into Angel Pine.....

This is not a mission but a cutscene in which Carl meets up with Cesar and
Kendl. Carl is informed that Big Smoke is the main pusher in Los Santos and
he gets shipments twice a week from San Fierro. Carl decides to keep an eye
out for these shipments.

It should be noted that on specific days Cesar will call Carl and let him
know about a shipment. You then have the option of going after it.
Fortunately, you do not need to go after these couriers for 100% Completion.
Therefore, I won't be going into any detail about them.

After leaving the trailer, Carl gets a call from an upset Catalina demanding
to know where he was. This also opens up.....

three remaining robberies in Red County. You can pick up her missions at her
hideout in Fern Ridge.

In this cutscene, Catalina professes her feelings to Carl in a rather unusual
fashion. Afterwards, you can go ahead and continue robbing the targets she
cased. As before, you can hit the three remaining targets in any order. So I
am going to go the the furthest target which is.....

  Catalina and Carl enter the Bank and begin robbing it.....

  Shotgun (provided), SMG.

The Plan
0======0
  When you get to the bank, you are in charge of crowd control. There are 
  three bank employees and a guard that you have to keep watch over. They 
  have their hands raised in the air and will slowly put them down. If one of 
  them manages to put their hands down, the alarm will be raised.

  To keep that from happening, you have to target one of them and move the 
  reticle from person to person to keep their hands up. However, no matter 
  how fast you are, they will always manage to sound the alarm. So, the best 
  thing to do is to target and shoot the guard right away so he doesn't shoot 
  back at you.

  Next, use the Shotgun and shoot open the ATM machines (three of them) and 
  get the cash. Then the two of you make your way through the back door and 
  down the alley. However, the cops are waiting for you. Kill all the cops 
  you see and get to the end of the alley. Then two cops on motorcycles show 
  up. Kill the two cops and get on the motorcycles.

  Catalina leads the way and is going to be chased by two other motorcycle 
  cops. Shoot the cops to get them off her tail. While you are trying to do 
  that, you will have to make a bridge jump. If you fail the jump and fall in 
  the water, another motorcycle cop will show up on the shore. Kill him and 
  take his bike so you can catch up to Catalina.

  Follow Catalina into Montgomery. The cops then converge and knock her off 
  her bike. You have to kill all of the cops then get back on the bike so you 
  can take Catalina back to her hideout to complete the mission.

Reward
0====0
  $10,000. You will also get a call from Cesar. He informs Carl about street 
  racers from San Fierro who race in the countryside to get away from the 
  cops. He wants you to get a fast car and meet him south of Montgomery. But 
  for now I am going to finish the rest of Catalina's missions.

Overview

  Both of them arrive at the Liquor Store (in Blueberry) just in time to see 
  it get robbed by another gang riding Quadbikes. As they get away, Catalina 
  shoots down one of them and now they must use the available Quadbike to 
  chase down the others.....

  SMG.

Notes

  None.

The Plan
0======0
  The mission here is to chase down the three remaining Quadbikes and kill 
  the riders. Catalina will do some shooting but you can speed things up by 
  using your SMG.

  The Quadbike handles a little differently than a regular bike and can take 
  some getting used to. Keep up with them the best you can. When you mamage 
  to kill a rider, he will drop a briefcase. You don't need to pick it up 
  when he drops it. You can get it when you are finished with the others.

  One method, and probably the best one, is to chase them but not kill them. 
  They will eventually lead you to a trailer park in north Las Calinas. There 
  they will dismount their Quadbikes. Get off of yours and quickly kill all 
  three would-be-robbers. 

  Then pick up the briefcases and take Catalina back to the hideout to end 
  the mission.

Reward
0====0
  $1,000. You will also get a call from Catalina who wants you to get to her 
  hideout right away.....

The Plan

  When you get inside, you are to blow open the door with the Remote 
  Grenades. Throw one on the door then go into the furthest corner and 
  detonate it. Once the door is blown off, go into the room and do the same 
  to the safe. After blowing open the safe, Carl will get the money and the 
  both of you exit the Betting Shop.

  Now you have a 4-Star Wanted Rating and you must go to a Pay N' Spray to 
  get rid of it. The closest one is in Dillimore. Make your way to Dillimore, 
  dodging the occasional police vehicles, to use the Pay N' Spray.

  Once you get to the Pay N' Spray, use it and then take Catalina back to the 
  hideout to end the mission.

Reward

  $2,000. This will also complete all of Catalina's robbery missions. Find a

Overview

  When Carl gets to the starting line, south of Montgomery, he is introduced 
  to an Asian gentleman named Wu Zi Mu. Woozie, as he likes to be called, 
  appears to be a nice enough gentleman. However, there is a race to be done 
  so Carl gets down to business.....

Weapons

Prep Work
0=======0
  Have a fast car saved in a nearby garage and take it with you to the race.

Notes
0===0
  None.

The Plan
0======0
  You go up against three other racers. When you start, cut to the right as 
  you get near the first checkpoint and get in first place right off the bat. 
  If you don't get the lead here there is another opportunity under the large 
  rock outcropping where the road is wide enough to pass up cars.

  Driving on the dirt road makes the car handle a little differently than on 
  the road. Once you get the lead, take it easy on the dirt road especially 
  around corners. Care must be taken when you get underneath the large road 
  bridge. If you're not careful turning underneath the bridge, so you can get 
  on to the small wooden bridge, you can fly off into the water and lose the 
  race.

  Another bad area is the EasterBoard Farm in Blueberry. Just stick to the 
  road and avoid going into any farm buildings. A nice shortcut is inside the 
  group of hairpin turns leading up the Panopticon. It is a short dirt road
  with a Police Bribe in it.

  After going up the hairpin turns on the Panopticon, you'll end up at the 
  shanty town area at the top. This is where the race will end. If you're in 
  first place when you get here, you'll win the race.

Reward
0====0
  $5,000. You'll also get a business card from Woozie in case you find 
  yourself in San Fierro.

  Catalina confronts Carl at the starting line and, after explaining her 
  bizarre method for expressing her love for someone, breaks up with Carl. 
  She also introduces him to her new beau who looks strangely familiar. He is 
  GTA3 Guy / Fido / Alex / Claude Speed / or whatever-you-want-to-call-him. 
  After the introduction, it's time to race.....

  You'll need to complete all of Catalina's robbery missions before you can 
  do this one.

Notes

The Plan
0======0
  The race starts where you ended the race in "Wu Zi Mu" (Cesar Vialpando). 
  You'll also note that regardless of what vehicle you came up with, you'll 
  use a black sports car (I believe it's the one you won from Woozie in the 
  last race).

  The course is exactly the same one as in the last race except you are going 
  in the opposite direction heading back to the farm south of Montgomery. The 
  same strategy from the last race pretty much applies here too. Don't forget 
  the nice little shortcut in the hairpin turns north of the starting line.

  When you finally win the race, Catalina gives Carl the deeds to a garage in 
  San Fierro. After that, Carl and Catalina say their final good-byes and the 
  mission is completed.

Reward
0====0
  Nothing. But you will get another call from The Truth which opens up his 
  next mission.....

  After Carl gives The Truth the money he was promised, the sounds of a 
  helicopter fill the air. The cops are on their way and the weed fields must 
  be destroyed before they get there.....

Weapons

  Flamethrower (provided), Rocket Launcher (provided).

Prep Work

  You can make this mission easier by doing the Firetruck Mission and 
  obtaining the Fireproof Feature.

Notes

  None.

The Plan
0======0
  You have five and a half minutes to destroy the fields and you are given a 
  Flamethrower to torch them. Switch to another weapon, like the SMG, and run 
  to the furthest point then switch back to the Flamethrower.

  Sweep the fields for a couple of seconds to start them flaming. They will 
  burn on their own after that. If you have the Fireproof Feature, you can 
  just wade into the fields and set them ablaze. Quickly move from section to 
  section keeping an eye on the radar to see if you missed any. After that 
  CJ will start to get a little high from the smoke but won't cause any 
  problems. After destroying all of the fields, go back to The Truth.

  There is a chopper hovering overhead and The Truth gives CJ a Rocket 
  Launcher to deal with it. The Truth then starts driving up the road. After 
  a short distance, he will stop. Follow the Mothership, The Truth's name for 
  the van, until it stops. Then use the Rocket Launcher to destroy the 
  chopper which was following the Mothership.

  After destroying the chopper, enter the Mothership. Then drive to the 
  Xoomer Garage in San Fierro, which you won from Catalina, to successfully 
  end the mission.

Reward
0====0
  Respect Gained. CJ will also discover that the Xoomer Garage is a dump and 
  that he feels he was duped by Catalina.

  him that they can make something out of this garage. When Carl asks about

  Now they head off to get them.....

  The first stop is the Xoomer Gas Station in Easter Basin where Jethro 
  works. When you get there, honk your horn and he will join you.

  The second stop is the San Fierro Medical Center in Santa Flora. Here you 
  sit as a mysterious van passes by.

  Next is the tram terminal in King's where Dwaine works at a hot dog van. 
  When you get there, honk your horn. Dwaine will join the garage but he has 
  some business to take care of and will join you there.

  Next stop is the Police Station in Downtown. Again you sit as a mysterious 
  van passes by. No real explaination is given.

  The next stop is in Garcia where an electronics expert, Zero, is sitting in 
  front of his shop. Honk your horn and he will get in the car.

  From there, head back to the garage to complete the mission.

Reward
0====0
  Nothing. You will also get a call from Zero complaining about his landlord. 
  His landlord plans to sell his shop. However, CJ is looking to get some 
  more property. Go over to Zero RC to purchase the shop for $30,000. Shortly 
  thereafter Zero calls and opens up.....

The Plan
0======0
  This mission takes place on the rooftop of Zero RC. Berkley is using remote 
  controlled planes to attack and destroy the four transmitters that Zero 
  owns. Carl is given a MiniGun to destroy the planes and protect the 
  transmitters. In addition, you can't move from your one spot during the 
  attack.

  The attack lasts for three minutes and you must keep at least one 
  transmitter intact at the end of those three minutes.

  The planes will be carrying bombs to drop on the transmitters. I should 
  note that the bombs can be destroyed without destroying the plane. If you 
  see a black puff of smoke coming from underneath the plane, you have 
  destroyed the bomb and the plane becomes useless. In addition, the red 
  blips on the radar are BOMBS not the planes. Destroy a bomb and the blip 
  disappears. This information will allow you to go from target to target 
  quickly instead of wasting time trying to destroy planes you don't need to.

  With a minute left, things start to go crazy as multiple swarms of planes 
  attack. If you head into this last minute with all of your transmitters 
  intact you should be okay. You'll end up losing a couple though in all of 
  the craziness but you can still succeed.

  If you have at least one transmitter intact at the end of the three minute 
  attack, you'll successfully complete the mission.

  On Christmas Day I finally got to do this mission and saw what the fuss was 
  about, according to the message boards.

  In this mission you have to destroy five couriers for Berkley RC using a RC 
  Baron (outfitted with machine guns). You also have a fuel limit and, after 
  destroying the couriers, you have to fly back to the Zero RC rooftop.

  Some missions seem impossible until someone finds a brain-dead simple way 
  to beat it. However, this mission appears to be a victim of Bad Design:

  --A too strict Fuel Limit.
  --Too many targets given the Fuel Limit.
  --Random target movement which will allow some of your targets to get out 
    of range and make the attempt impossible to finish.

  These flaws are what makes this mission much harder, and more frustrating, 
  than it really needs to be.

  There is one good bit of design though. The RC Baron has a pretty good 
  machine gun. It has good range, good power, and it auto-aims. Just point 
  the plane in the target's general direction and the gun will do the rest. 

  In addition, you use up fuel at the same rate regardless of speed so you 
  will have to go as fast as you can to maximize the amount of fuel you have. 
  You also use no fuel when sitting idle on the ground.

  After getting the Xbox version I heard from the message boards that this 
  mission seemed to be easier. The truth is the mission is exactly the same 
  as it is in the PS2 version complete with all of the Bad Design I mentioned 
  earlier. To be honest, the Xbox version is actually worse because of the 
  flying controls.

  However, according to Vaibhav Naruka, and probably due to a programming 
  oversight, there is one thing that can help make the Xbox version of this 
  mission tolerable. For some reason, when on the ground, you can drive your 
  plane backwards without using any fuel. After playing around with this I 
  found that it is not wise to do this throughout the entire mission but can 
  come in handy in certain spots.

  And no, this won't work in the PS2 version.

The Plan
0======0
  I tried some suggestions that I've seen on the message boards and, after 
  playing around with them, I've polished it into a fairly reliable strategy 
  to dealing with this mission. There is still some element of luck involved 
  so it won't work 100% of the time but I feel that this will increase your 
  chances of successful completion a bit.

  This mission is going to broken into three parts.

  The first part involves dealing with the first three targets. the faster 
  you can get through part one, the better off you will be.

  As you take off, angle left. You should see the first target which is a 
  van. Angle slightly downward and fire off a burst. The driver should bail 
  but leave him alone.
  
  Angle slightly left and head down the street. You should see the second 
  target which is a courier on a bike. Shoot at him until he bails but leave 
  him alone also. 

  Next, turn right and head west over the building (so the couriers can't get 
  a good shot at you). If you do everything correctly, by the time you get 
  across the street and into the park it should look like you have not used 
  up any fuel.

  There are two reasons for doing the first two targets this way. One, this 
  is faster than trying to destroy them outright and second, this will keep 
  them from wandering outside the city limits while you take care of the 
  other three targets. They will be chasing you instead of you chasing them. 
  You will deal with them in part three.

  As you enter into Hashbury you should see the third target which is another 
  van. But this one has a gunner in the passenger seat who will shoot at you 
  when you get close enough and attack. Once you see him, let go of the gas 
  so you can glide and then start shooting him from afar. This will reduce 
  the chances of the van's gunner hitting you with gunfire. After destroying 
  him, quickly turn northeast. 
  
  This ends part one. The faster you get through this, the more fuel you will 
  have for part two.

  Part two involves the two northernmost targets. Go for the furthest one 
  which is a van on the northeast part of the city. This target is the one 
  most likely to get out of range by going north and by destroying him 
  quickly will keep things managable. When you see him, dive while shooting 
  at him. By the time you get to him, his van will be flaming. You'll 
  probably end up on the ground by the time the van explodes. Look and see if 
  the courier exited his van. If he did, then turn, while on the ground, and 
  kill him. Another option is to land behind him then shoot up his van to 
  destroy it. Once that van is taken of, lift off and go after the next 
  target.

  The fifth target will be a motorcycle with two guys on it. Land behind them 
  and get as close as you can. Make sure they are past an intersection before 
  doing anything. Fire off a long burst and that should be enough to get the 
  cycle flaming so it will blow up. This is the toughest target because when 
  you fire on him he will quickly speed off (and if you are at an 
  intersection he will turn and get out of your line of fire). Also, they are 
  quite accurate with their machine guns so if you try to take them from the 
  air you'll more than likely be shot down and fail the mission. This 
  ends part two.

  The last part involves getting the last two couriers you caused to bail and 
  fly back to Zero RC. Hopefully you should have enough fuel to head back 
  towards the street by the park in Garcia (that also runs in front of Zero 
  RC).

  If you're playing the Xbox version you have the option of driving backwards 
  to conserve fuel. You have to fly back in the PS2 version.

  Look and see on the map where the remaining two couriers are. Then land on 
  the ground near their position (or drive there (Xbox)) and let them come to 
  you. They should still be fairly close to Zero RC. Once you see a courier, 
  angle your plane and shoot them when they get close enough to you.

  When you kill them both, fly up and land on Zero's rooftop to end the 
  mission.

The Plan
0======0
  Compared to the last two missions this one's fairly easy.

  The "battle" takes place on a model battlefield. Each of the "combatants" 
  has a base (one on each side). In order for Zero to win he has to drive his 
  RC Bandit into Berkley's base. He also has to follow a long winding road to 
  get there and it has several obstacles in it.

  This is where CJ comes into play. You have to fly an RC Goblin (helicopter) 
  that has a magnet attached to the bottom so you can move items into place 
  or out of the way. You fly down low to an object and press Attack to get 
  it. In Zero's base there are five metal planks and one bomb. The planks are 
  used to bridge gaps (there are two) and the bomb can be used on the three 
  tanks that are on Berkley's side of the field.

  In addition to the three tanks, Berkley controls an RC Goblin which will 
  place barrels in the way of Zero's car. If Zero's RC Bandit gets too close 
  to the tanks, they will open fire on it and will most likely destroy it. 
  Luckily, Zero has three Bandits (and you have three Goblins) but it takes 
  time to get back up the path and that's bad. That's because you have eight 
  minutes to clear a path and allow Zero to drive his Bandit into Berkley's 
  base.

  When the mission starts, the first thing you should do is go left and find 
  the planks. Grab one and head for a bridge gap. As you head for a bridge 
  gap you will hear Zero complaining. There is a barrel blocking his path 
  right out of the gate. Leave the barrel there. Once you bridge one gap, go 
  back, get another plank, and bridge the other gap.

  Next, find a nearby barrel and grab it. Then go over to one of the tanks 
  and drop the barrel on it. Dropping a barrel on a tank will damage it. 
  Dropping the barrel a second time will cause the tank to flame. Back away 
  quickly before it explodes. Repeat for the two other tanks.

  After that, remove the barrel that was blocking Zero. Go along the path and 
  clear the barrels as you come to them so Zero can proceed.

  Once Zero's RC Bandit enters Berkley's base Zero will finally banish 
  Berkley from San Fierro once and for all.

Reward
0====0
  $7,000. This will also finish up all of the Zero RC Asset Missions. You 
  will earn a Money Icon outside Zero RC that maxes out at $5,000.

  You will also open up the Beefy Baron minigame. You pick this up in the 
  back of Zero's shop. You will be given control of an RC Baron (like the one 
  used in "Supply Lines...") but has no fuel limit. You have about three 
  minutes to destroy as many of Berkley's vans as you can. You don't have to 
  do this for 100% Completion but it makes for a nice diversion (my record is 
  25).

  By the way, if you have a Wanted Rating when you start Beefy Baron you can 
  get rid of it by playing through the minigame.

The Plan
0======0
  Head on over to the blip across the street from the Vank Hoff Hotel in 
  Financial. Next you have to go down to the parking garage and wait for the 
  valet. If you have a Wanted Rating and go down into the garage, you will 
  fail the mission. After the valet gets out of the car, cap him and then 
  pick up the Valet Uniform.

  Next, go up to the surface and to the red circle. You will then be informed 
  that the DA drives a blue Merit. Get close to the roadway island and wait. 
  Usually the first blue car that comes up is the Merit. Take it and go. If 
  another valet gets to it first, jack it from him.

  You now have two and a half minutes to get back to the Xoomer Garage to 
  plant the drugs. From there you have to go back to the entrance of the 
  parking garage. You cannot damage the car in any way. If you do, you have 
  to go all the way back to the garage. Once you get back to the parking 
  garage entrance, park the car in the designated spot.

  From there, go back up and to the red circle and watch the fun.....

Reward
0====0
  Nothing. But you gain the Valet Uniform and also open up the.....

 \=========================================================================/

Go to your nearest Safehouse (Calton Heights) and save your game. Go into
your closet and select Special then Valet Uniform. Then go back to the
entrance of the Vank Hoff Hotel.

When you step into the red circle (while wearing the Valet Uniform) you will
start the Valet Parking Mission. You have to take the cars as they come up
and then park them. There are five levels to the mission. You are required to
park a certain number of cars within two minutes.

When you start you'll see a Damage Bonus which starts at 45. If you damage
the car, you'll lose some of the bonus. You'll also get a Parking Bonus when
you park the car. The more accurate you park the car, the larger the bonus
(up to about 15). You get extra time with these bonuses. If you're good, you
can get up to about a minute of time with each car parked.

Don't bother killing the other valets. You'll get a 20 second penalty plus
another will take his place.

This mission is very easy and should be completed in one try. One tip: when
you get a car, go straight through the gap ahead of you and curve right into
the garage. This will save time.

Below are the five levels and the tip you recieve at the end of each level:

Level 1
*******
  --3 cars in two minutes with a $100 tip.

Level 2
*******
  --4 cars in two minutes with a $200 tip.

Level 3
*******
  --5 cars in two minutes with a $300 tip.

Level 4
*******
  --6 cars in two minutes with a $400 tip.

Level 5
*******
  --7 cars in two minutes.

After finishing level five you will successfully complete the Valet Parking
Mission. You will then gain the asset and a Money Icon that maxes out at
$2,000.

The Plan

  There are six portable buildings that you have to destroy. You'll also need 
  a Dozer. You also have the option of using the giant crane. The most you 
  can destroy is three of them but it will keep the workers off of your case 
  for awhile.

  The moment you either grab a Dozer, destroy a building with a crane, or 
  attack the workers, a three minute timer will begin. This is how long you 
  have to destroy the buildings before the cops are alerted. Some of the 
  buildings have explosive barrels that must be avoided otherwise you will 
  end up destroying the Dozer and yourself with it.

  According to Tom Fang you can also use Remote Explosives on the buildings. 
  However, some of them may take two Remote Grenades to destroy.

  After destroying the six portable buildings, you will see a cutscene. In it 
  you will see the Foreman getting out of a Porta-Potty and looking to see 
  what the racket is about. When he sees the destruction you have caused, he 
  goes and hides in the Porta-Potty.

  Now take your Dozer and push the Porta-Potty (with the Foreman inside) into 
  the large hole. Once that is done, move away from the red circle and get 
  out. Enter the nearby Cement Truck and back up to the large hole (and into 
  the red circle) to bury the Foreman and complete the mission.

After "Deconstruction" (Carl Johnson), you'll see three red "S" symbols on
the map. There's one in Tierra Robada (Boat School) and one in Las Venturas
(Bike School).

The last one is in San Fierro and that is the Driving School (it is south of
the Doherty Safehouse). Enter into the building and you'll end up in a
waiting room.

You'll see a woman with a blue arrow above her. She is Michelle and she can
become your Girlfriend if you want. Near the desk is a Mechanic. He will tell
you about the Driving School.

In order to pass the Driving School you will need to pass twelve tests and
they can be picked up at the nearby VCR. You will need to pass one test
before moving onto the next. You will need to have an Overall Score of 70% in
order to pass.

There are three things that determine your Overall Score:

>>Final Heading - Your car has to point due south or due north. The 
  straighter your car, the higher the score.

>>Final Position - The closer your car gets to where it is supposed to stop, 
  the higher your score.

>>Damage Penalty - If you damage the car or run over a cone, this will 
  subtract points from your Overall Score.

When you pass a test, you'll earn either a Bronze, Silver, or Gold
certificate. At 70% (the minimum), you'll earn a Bronze. At 90%, you'll earn
a Silver. And at 100% (a perfect score), you'll earn a Gold.

To complete the Driving School (and have it count toward 100% Completion),
you'll need to get a Bronze in all twelve tests. You DO NOT need to get all
Golds for 100% Completion. Just get a passing grade in the twelve tests. You
will also get an increase in Driving Skill by completing the Driving School.

However, there are bonuses for getting all Silvers and all Golds. You will
earn extra cars that will spawn in the Driving School parking lot:

>>All Bronzes - Super GT.
>>All Silvers - Bullet.
>>All Golds - Hotkinfe.

The best thing to do after passing a test is to get out of the school, save
at the Doherty Safehouse, then go back and do the next test. This will save
you some headaches in case something bad happens while in the Driving School.

Here are the twelve tests:

The 360
*******
  You need to do one complete revolution and stop (and it must be done within 
  a ten second time limit. Very easy to pass and get a Gold in.

The 180
*******
  You need to go up the track, do a 180 through some cones, and return to 
  where you started in under ten seconds.

Whip And Terminate
******************
  You need to go along an L-shaped course and stop in the assigned area in 
  under five seconds. You are also given a choice of either a Clockwise or 
  Counterclockwise direction.

Pop And Control
***************
  Now things start to get a little more challenging. You need to go along a 
  crooked course and stop in the assigned area in under five seconds. 
  However, at the beginning of the course is a spike strip and you will have 
  to go through the course with your tires blown.

Burn And Lap
************
  You have to do five laps around an oval course in under 40 seconds. You are 
  also given a choice of either a Clockwise or Counterclockwise direction. 
  This isn't too hard to pass but if you want Gold you will have to get your 
  time under 36 seconds.

Cone Coil
*********
  You have to weave through some cones, do a 180, swerve back through them, 
  and stop where you started in under ten seconds. You are also given a 
  choice of either a Clockwise or Counterclockwise direction. Keep your 
  movements small while swerving otherwise you'll swing wildly and lose time.

The '90'
********
  You have to stop your car using a powerslide (and going 90 degrees) so you 
  end up between, and perfectly aligned, between two parked cars. You also 
  have a five second time limit.

Wheelie Weave
*************
  This is probably the hardest test to pass let alone Gold in. You have to 
  get your car on two wheels and stop in the assigned area. The car is very 
  hard to control on two wheels and you have to get the car back on four 
  wheels when at the asssigned area. You'll end up failing time and time 
  again because you'll end up on four wheels long before you can get to the 
  red circle. Perserverance is what will get you through this one.

Spin And Go
***********
  You have to go backwards through the first half of the course then spin 
  around 180 degrees and go forward so you can stop in the assigned area in 
  under five seconds. You are also given a choice of either a Clockwise or 
  Counterclockwise direction. This is made more challenging on the Xbox 
  version because of the controls. You need to Look Behind to see what you 
  are doing and that is made more difficult on the Xbox version.

P.I.T. Maneuver
***************
  You have to go up alongside the rear of another car and cause him to spin 
  out with minimal or no damage. The closer to the other car you are, the 
  better your score.

Alley Oop
*********
  You need to do a barrel roll over some cars and land on all four wheels. 
  When you mamage to land perfectly, brake gently to slow the car down some 
  so you can straighten it out then stop. This will increase your chances of 
  passing the test and possibly getting a Gold.

City Slicking
*************
  This final test involves driving to a point near Pier 69 and heading back 
  to the Driving School in under two minutes with minimal damage. This is 
  made more challenging because the car you are given handles like shit and 
  will spin out at the slightest provocation. Worse, you can't come to a 
  complete stop otherwise the test will end.

  The best course is this. Go north up the street that runs past Cranberry 
  Station and the Xoomer Garage. When you see the large white buildings going 
  into Downtown and it opens up to your right a bit, cut across and go north 
  along the street parallel to the one you were just on. This will lead you 
  to the checkpoint. As you get near the checkpoint, you'll need to carefully 
  go down the curved street that is in front of the entrance for the parking 
  garage to Pier 69.

  Once you get the checkpoint, go south along the wide street, past the 
  Easter Basin Naval Station and Xoomer Gas Station, and turn right at the 
  signal light south of Shady / Solarin Industries. This will lead you back 
  to the Driving School. To get a Gold here you must do this with no damage 
  in under 1:40. Good luck!

  button, and take pictures of the people involved using the Attack button. 
  You must get their faces in order to succeed.

  You will be facing the Cluckin' Bell. The first car will appear in the 
  parking lot to the left. Ryder will exit this car and head into the 
  restaurant. Take his picture.

  Another car will come up after that and park next to Ryder's car. A guy by 
  the name of T-Bone Mendez will get out. Take his picture.

  Turn to the right. Another car will come and park in the street. An unnamed 
  person will get out and head for the Cluckin' Bell. Take his picture.

  Another car will come and park next to the last one. Another unnamed person 
  will get out of the car but he appears to be a pimp. Take his picture.

  After taking the picture of the pimp the two of you will leave the rooftop 
  and go to a nearby gas station. Here you will split up and you will need to 
  get back to San Fierro on your own.

  After this the mission will end successfully.

Overview
0======0
  With a little help from Woozie, Carl identifies the three men they got 
  pictures of at Angel Pine. The pimp is Jizzy B. and he owns the Pleasure 
  Domes under the Gant Bridge. Jizzy helps set up the deals and serves as a 
  kind of middleman. Carl decides to use this to his advantage.....

Weapons
0=====0
  SMG, Heat-Seeking Rocket Launcher (optional).

Prep Work

  Go to Easter Bay Airport and pick up the Heat-Seeking Rocket Launcher Icon.

Notes

The Plan
0======0
  Go to the Pleasure Domes under the Gant Bridge. Once there he will 
  introduce himself as a new guy looking for work. Once he impresses Jizzy, 
  Jizzy will tell CJ that he needs to find out who has been killing his 
  girls. CJ is more than happy to oblige.

  As CJ is leaving Jizzy wants him to drop off one of his girls at the hotel 
  Downtown. He is also giving you the use of his Broadway.

  Take the girl to the hotel and drop her off. Afterwards CJ will be told to 
  get rid of a rival in Hashbury. You have two minutes to go over there and 
  kill him. Get over there, get out of the car, and kill this rival. 
  Afterwards Jizzy will tell CJ to go over to Foster Valley and find out 
  who's been killing his girls.

  You will now see a health bar with the word "HO" next to it. You need to 
  get over to Foster Valley and save her as quickly as possible. Once under 
  the freeway bridge take out both punters who are attacking the girls. After 
  that CJ will call Jizzy.

  But Jizzy is upset. Seems that the girl CJ dropped off Downtown wants to 
  leave prostitution and be with her sugar daddy. Jizzy wants CJ to go up 
  there and make an example of them. As you approach the blip try to approach 
  it from the west. When CJ gets to the hotel he sees the girl getting into a 
  limo with a preacher. In addition there is another vehicle providing 
  protection for the limo.

  Now you need to take out the limo and his protection. You can chase and 
  drive-by them but the Broadway is not a good vehicle to do this. You can do 
  it but there are better ways to handle this.

  If you approached the blip from the west, turn left at the next 
  intersection. Then turn right and stop at the southeast corner of the Big 
  Pointy Building. Get out and look south. The limo should be turning your 
  way. Arm the Heat-Seeking Rocket Launcher and lock in on the limo. When 
  locked in, launch a couple of rockets to take out the limo. After that, the 
  other vehicle stops and the occupants come out to confront you. Kill them 
  to complete the task.

  After that CJ will call Jizzy. Jizzy will be pleased with your work. 
  However, the pimpmobile will be posted to an APB and Carl can keep the car 
  as long as he keeps it away from Jizzy and club. After that call the 
  mission will successfully end.

Reward
0====0
  $3,000 plus Respect Gained. You also have a 2-Star Wanted Rating you need 
  to get rid of before proceeding to the next mission.

  In addition, a "W" symbol appears in Chinatown. This is where you pick up 
  Woozie's set of missions but for now I will continue with the Loco 
  Syndicate.

  is under the bridge not far from the Pay N' Spray.

  Once you get there you will be placed on a FCR-900 and you have to chase 
  and the four ambushers. There are two ways to do this mission.

  The first way is to get up close behind one of them and press Attack to 
  snatch it from his bike. However, he will then try to follow you and shoot 
  you.

  The second way is to get behind one of them and shoot him until he 
  wrecks. Then get to the fallen bike and tap Attack to get the package.

  After getting all four packages, take them to the Pleasure Domes. Once you 
  get there, the mission will end successfully.

  You need to go over to the Pleasure Domes to pick up this mission.
  
  After the cutscene you have five and a half minutes to find Mike. Mike can 
  hear seagulls and heavy machinery. So go over to the building site in 
  Doherty.

  After getting near the building site Mike will hear a truck reversing. Carl 
  thinks that he is over at a freight depot. Now go to the docks at Easter 
  Basin.

  As Carl gets to the docks Mike reports gunfire and that these thugs may 
  have shot their way through a security gate. The only place that has one is 
  at the Easter Bay Airport. Go to the airport.

  Once on the airport grounds T-Bone activates a tag. After the last mission 
  the Loco Syndicate decided to put tracers in the drugs to find out who has 
  been stealing them. But something has happened and now they need to use the 
  tags to find Mike. You will notice a Signal line below your Health line. T
  The closer you are to Mike, the more the line will fill up. It should be 
  noted that Mike's position will change randomly with each attempt.

  Once you find the van that Mike has been hiding in, you will need to chase 
  the van. You can't shoot it because if you destroy it you will fail the 
  mission. Deal with the two motorcycles. Eventually the van will stop and 
  their occupants will exit and confront you. Get out and kill all of the 
  nearby goons with any weapon (excluding explosive) you choose.

  After that, you will get a hostile introduction to Mike. Mike needs to 
  destroy the van before the cops arrive. Now destroy the van with any weapon 
  (Shotgun works well here) and get into the nearby car. Go over to the blip 
  outside the airport.

  Once there you will be hit with a 3-Star Wanted Rating. Go over to the Pay 
  N' Spray to get rid of it. After that, head back to the Pleasure Domes.

  Once you get there, the mission will end successfully.

  Go on over to the Xoomer Gas Station in Easter Basin where T-Bone will be

  car to meet a shipment.

  When you get to the shipment, you will see a Sanchez and a Rocket Launcher. 
  You need to get ahead of the van and clear a path for it to get to the 
  factory.

  Get on the Sanchez and quickly get up to the first roadblock. Use the 
  Rocket Launcher to get rid of the cars and use the Sniper Rifle on the 
  survivors.

  The second roadblock is near the construction site. Do the same thing on 
  this roadblock but you may want to aim at the ruined building on the left 
  with the Rocket Launcher so you can get the gunmen hidden in the upper part 
  of the ruined building.

  The third roadblock is at the southwest corner of the construction site. 
  Rocket the cars and snipe the survivors.

  The last roadblock is a couple of blocks south of the third roadblock. Once 
  this has been destroyed, you need to escort the van to the factory which is 
  next door to the Driving School.

  Once the van has been safely escorted to the factory, the mission will be 
  successfully completed.

The Plan
0======0
  Go get the Sniper Rifle that Tenpenny has hid in the nearby construction 
  site. After acquiring the Sniper Rifle, you need to make your way to 
  Cranberry Station where the reporter is about to get on the train. When you 
  get close enough, the train will depart for Market Station in Los Santos 
  and you have to follow it.

  You can get a car and speed your way to the station (both versions) or, if 
  you have your pilot's license, go to the airport and use a Maverick (PS2 
  only - remember the Pilots License glitch on the Xbox version). You can't 
  use the airport terminal (to get a ticket to jet to Los Santos) - it won't 
  let you in. You also can't use cars in garages either - they won't open.

  Once you get to Los Santos, you need to get to Market Station. If you used 
  the chopper, you need to get a car. Once the reporter arrives at the 
  station, he will head up to street level and get a cab. You will also 
  notice a Spook-O-Meter beneath your health line. If you stay too close for 
  too long, the reporter will abandon the interview and you will fail the 
  mission.

  The cab will take different paths on each attempt. But it will go to the 
  same place - the Santa Maria Beach Pier. The reporter will meet the snitch 
  at the end of the pier. Keep your distance and kill them both with the 
  Sniper Rifle. If one of them manages to get out of range, chase him down 
  and kill him with any other weapon. He can't really get away because he's 
  on a pier.

  Once both of them are dead, the mission will end successfully.

  If you thought about using the taxi trick used in "Cutting The Grass" 
  (Salvatore Leone) in GTA3 (where you can get a taxi and drive the snitch 
  yourself to Portland Harbor), forget it. It won't work here.

Reward

  You need to pick this mission up between 20:00 and 6:00.

  Get the motorcycle from your garage, go on over to the Pleasure Domes club, 
  and park in the parking lot. But when you get to the door, you find that 
  the guards won't let you in. So you need to get onto the nearby 
  scaffolding, on Gant Bridge, to get on top of the club. Once on the roof, 
  go through the skylight to enter.

  Gently make you down to the bar area. Once there, a cutscene will play 
  showing CJ confronting Jizzy. Jizzy will then run for his life.

  Use your SMG to clear the club of gunmen before going after Jizzy. Jizzy 
  will then drive off and you have to chase him. Get on your motorcycle and 
  go after him. He won't go very fast so it will be easy to keep up with him. 
  Shoot up his car with short bursts. If you do a long burst you can quickly 
  blow up his car which will kill Jizzy but destroy the phone and you will 
  fail the mission.

  When the car bursts into flames, Jizzy will jump out. He will then run down 
  the street firing randomly. Get off the motorcycle and kill Jizzy with your 
  SMG.

  Then collect the phone Jizzy drops to end the mission successfully.

Notes

  Pier 69 is based on San Francisco's Pier 39 which is on the Embarcadero. 
  How do I know this? That's because I used to work there at the Namco 
  CyberStation Arcade which was at the front of the pier (1991-1993). 
  Rockstar did a good job in recreating the tourist attraction except that 
  they did not put in an arcade where you can play the arcade mini-games 
  within San Andreas. What's up with that?.

The Plan
0======0
  Go to the red circle across the street from Pier 69 to pick up this 
  mission. When you enter the red circle, Cesar will yell at you from the top 
  of the building. Go up the stairs in the back to get up and meet him.

  When you get there, Cesar will get a call from Woozie's men who are waiting 
  near the entrance. Then they go and head up to the roof. But they are 
  ambushed by T-Bone's security who got there early. Use your Sniper Rifle to 
  pick off the six security guards before they can kill all of the Triad men. 
  If the Triads are killed, you fail the mission.

  After killing off T-Bone's security, T-Bone will drive up. So will Ryder 
  and some Ballas. They meet up at the end of the pier but Toreno is nowhere 
  to be seen. Then Torino comes in on a helicopter. But he sees the bodies on 
  the rooftop and the meet is off. The Ballas throw Smoke Grenades and now CJ 
  and Cesar need to kill T-Bone quickly.

  After the cutscene, switch to your SMG. Then run down to Pier 69. Run along 
  the right side of the pier (avoiding the gunmen in the middle of the pier), 
  go to the end of the pier, run right up to T-Bone, and kill him your SMG. 
  If you do this quickly enough, he won't be able to really hurt you. Don't 
  worry about Cesar, he'll catch up.

  After killing T-Bone, Ryder will jump off the pier and try to swim away. 
  The game prompts you to jump in after him. But all you need to do is go up 
  to the railing, switch to your Sniper Rifle, and kill Ryder long before he 
  can get to the nearby boats to successfully end the mission.

  Note: If you have any Rocket Launcher ammo left over from "Outrider" (Loco 
  Syndicate) you can also blow up the boats and Ryder.

Reward

  The helipad is at the San Fierro Police Station in Downtown. It will have 
  two gunmen on the pad, two near the stairs, and two roaming nearby outside 
  the compound. One of the two gunmen on the pad will have a Rocket Launcher.

  The best way to do this is to go up the road that goes by the Easter Basin 
  Naval Station and enter the parking lot for the San Fierro Police Station. 
  Get out near the base of the hill.

  As you approach the blue van you may hear a couple of explosions. The 
  gunman on the helipad with the Rocket Launcher is firing at you but can't 
  hit you. He will simply fire into the helipad.

  Switch to your Heat-Seeking Rocket Launcher and, while ignoring the nearby 
  gunmen, climb up the stairs.

  When you get near the top, you will see the helicopter take off. After the 
  cutscene, immediately aim for the helicopter. When the reticle turns from 
  green to red, fire off as many missiles as you can. You should be able to 
  launch enough missiles to follow and destroy the helicopter to successfully 
  complete the mission.

  come to a gate. The Blood Feather Triad has been wiped out. Except for one 
  member who hid and was able to tell Woozie who did it - a Vietnamese 
  gang.....and then the gang comes back to finish the job.

  Now you have to shoot your way out and protect Woozie at the same time. Use 
  your SMG and kill all of the gunmen who came through the gate. There will 
  be some more that will come in on motorcycles just as you exit the gate. 
  Kill them and proceed around the corner.

  Now there will be a bunch more gunmen including a sniper. Rapidly target 
  and kill them all. Then get into a nearby car that some of the gunmen you 
  killed came in with. As you back out of the alley, you will be chased by a 
  couple of cars.

  However, you need to let Woozie destroy the cars. So let the cars come 
  close behind you so he can shoot them up and destroy them. When he destroys

The Plan

  The package is in a car that is parked in the Easter Bay Airport parking 
  garage. Go to and get in the car.

  When you get in the car, the Da Nang Boys spring an ambush and cover the 
  exits. You need to get the car to a pier west of Pier 69 in Esplanade 
  North. A Damage Meter will also appear under the Health Line.

  Get out of the car and use the SMG to kill the approaching gunman and 
  destroy the truck. Get back in and continue through the parking garage. 
  Whenever you see a truck, get out and destroy it along with the gunman. 
  This will help reduce damage to the car. As you near the exit, you may 
  encounter two gunmen who will spring out. Exit the car and kill them. Then 
  get back in and proceed out of the garage.

  If you thought about going through the other end of the garage and going 
  through the gate onto the airport grounds (if you got a pilots license), 
  forget it. The gate is locked.

  Once out, take a left. You will encounter another gunman in the open. 
  Either get out and kill him or run him over. After that, you will encounter 
  a roadblock with two additional gunmen. Just go to either side and run one 
  of them over.

  As you get past the entrance, you will be chased by two motorcycles with 
  gunmen. Get underneath the freeway bridge and hang a right toward the 
  Police Bribe. Stop and get out. Then target and kill all of the people on 
  the motorcycles.

  Get back in the car and pick up the Police Bribe to reduce or get rid of 
  any Wanted Ratings. If you still took on too much damage, head over to the 
  Pay N' Spray.

  Go on the road in east Easter Basin and drive straight north to the dropoff 
  point. This will allow you to avoid additional confrontations with the Da 
  Nang Boys who are still trying to pursue you. You will encounter one chase
  vehicle as you approach Pier 69 but you can just blow past him and to the 
  dropoff point to successfully complete the mission.

The Plan

  Get into the Decoy Car and drive over to the sawmill in Angel Pine. You 
  cannot leave the car for any reason or you will fail the mission.

  When you get to the sawmill, you will be attacked by the Da Nang Boys who 
  will come, in pairs, on motorcycles. You have to go along a checkpoint 
  course and lure them along. You cannot let them do too much damage to the 
  car or let them look at you for too long or they will know you are a decoy 
  and you will fail the mission.

  To reduce the amount of damage they can do, stop the car and let them get 
  up alongside you. Then quickly kill them in drive-by mode, both right and 
  left sides. Then proceed along the path until another group comes along to 
  attack you then repeat the process.

  Eventually the path will end at the Whetstone 24-7. When you get here in 
  one piece, you will successfully complete the mission.

Weapons

  Get some Heat-Seeking Rocket Launcher ammo from the Easter Bay Airport..

Notes

The Plan
0======0
  You need to get to the blip which is east of Pier 69 in Esplanade North. 
  From there you jump into the water, swim out of the rock formation, and 
  into open water. When you swim out of the rock formation, swim south and 
  toward the small platform. Stay under the surface for as long as possible.

  When you surface, a cutscene will play informing you of the Da Nang patrol 
  boats. If they see you in the water, they will shoot you.

  Once you get to the small platform, get up and switch to your Heat-Seeking 
  Rocket Launcher. There are two boats here you can target. Aim at one of the 
  boats ahead of you and fire when the reticle turns red. Do the same to the 
  other boat. After destroying both boats swim to the small island.

  When you get onto the island aim at the boat to your left. Fire at the boat 
  when the reticle turns red. A side benefit is that the explosion will knock 
  out the two searchlights on that side of the boat. Swim toward that side of 
  the ship and turn right. The landing platform should be right there. Get 
  onto the platform and head up to the ship's deck.

  Sneak up and kill all of the guards you encounter with your Silenced Pistol 
  as you head to the back of the ship. When you get to the back of the ship, 
  head down to the next level through a door. Get into the red circle to 
  plant the bug.

  Get back outside, head back toward where you came up on the deck, and jump 
  into the water. Then swim to the red circle and successfully end the 
  mission.

Reward

  The Da Nang Boys are arriving on a container ship and CJ decides to tag 
  along for a flyby of the ship.....

Weapons
0=====0
  Silenced Pistol, SMG.

Prep Work
0=======0
  None.

Notes
0===0
  None.

The Plan
0======0
  As you fly to the container ship you are given control of a MiniGun. When 
  you get to the ship you are attacked by armed guards. Use the MinGun to 
  kill as many of them as possible. Unfortunately, the helicopter is shot 
  down by missiles fired from one of the gunmen (you can shoot at him but 
  can't kill him).

  When you land in the water, you lose all of your weapons but are given a 
  knife. The level designers wanted you to go on the ship and sneak your way 
  around using the Knife to kill any guards you encounter.

  Screw that.

  I swam out of the water and back into San Fierro. Then I jacked a nearby 
  car and went to the Ammu-Nation in Ocean Flats to rebuild my arsenal 
  especially my Silenced Pistol and SMG ammo. I also went to the nearby 
  Cluckin' Bell and regained my lost health. Then I went back into the water 
  and swam to the ship.

  When you go onto the deck, crouch and use the Silenced Pistol to take out 
  all of the guards you see. Proceed carefully and look around each corner. 
  Jump around the corner and quickly kill any guards you encounter before 
  they can make enough noise to alert others. Along the way you will find 
  Tec9 ammo and a Health Icon in various nooks.

  Soon you will find a way into the interior of the ship. After the cutscene, 
  you will be attacked by guards. You can switch to your SMG and kill them 
  rapidly. I should also note that there is Body Armor and a Tec9 hidden in a 
  corner behind a couple of container crates near where you drop in at.

  You will find four guards when you get to the first turn going right. Kill 
  them and continue. After going past the second turn, you will encounter a 
  Grenade throwing guard. Run up to him so you can avoid the blast. Then kill 
  him.

  You will then be prompted to open the container crate containing the 
  prisoners. After opening the crate, you will be told to go back up and 
  onto the bridge. You need to kill everybody on the bridge.

  Go back the way you came and climb up onto the deck. You will also notice 
  that a third of your health has been removed for some reason. When you get 
  back up to the deck climb the crates so you can get to the bridge. You will 
  encounter a gunman waiting by the door. Kill him and enter the door. When 
  you get to the stairs, you will find two more gunmen at the top. Kill them 
  both and proceed to the bridge.

  Here you will encounter the Snakehead. He will throw you a Katana so you 
  can sword fight him.

  Screw that too.

  As he ran up to me I quickly switched to my Silenced Pistol and shot him in 
  the face before he could do anything (and fell dead at my feet). From here, 
  you are prompted to go to the freed prisoners who are waiting for you on 
  the deck. When you get back to them you will successfully complete the 
  mission.

Reward

  $15,000 plus Respect Gained. This will also end Woozie's line of 
  missions.....for now. This will open up the last of the Loco Syndicate

The Plan
0======0
  When you start you'll get a call from one of Woozie's men. They are rigging 
  a car with explosives so you can take out the factory. Go on over to the 
  garage in Downtown to get the car.

  Now drive over to the Crack Lab which is next door to the Driving School in 
  Doherty. When you get there, you will see a couple of guards. Kill them to 
  get the gate to open. When the gate opens, drive in a little bit, get out, 
  and kill the nearby guards. This will reduce damage to the car. You may 
  want to stay out of the car and go into the main building so you remove 
  potential interference.

  When you get back in the car, drive over to the main building. When you get 
  inside, you have to drive through the building and park the car in the red 
  circle. Arm the bomb.

  Now you have 40 seconds to get out of the building. But there will be 
  additional gunmen to deal with. Quickly kill the gunmen with your SMG as 
  you proceed through the factory. When you get to a door, the bomb will 
  explode and the factory will be destroyed.

  Now you have to get out of the main gates on foot. As you make your way 
  there, you'll encounter two groups of three gunmen each. The first group 
  will be at the first set of container crates. The second group will be at 
  the next set of container crates. Kill them and continue.

  When you get to the gates, a car will drive up. Kill the two occupants when 
  they come out. When you get near the car, the gate will close. Now you are 
  prompted to use the car and jump out of the facility.

  Before getting in the car, run toward the ramp and kill all of the gunmen 
  you encounter so you can clear a path to the ramp. Then get back to the car 
  and drive to the main building. Turn around and drive up the ramp. You 
  should land on the container crates and bounce into the street. Once back 
  on the street, drive over to the Garage to end the mission.

Reward

  $25,000 plus Respect Gained. In addition, you can now buy M4's at all 
  Ammu-Nations. Also CJ will no longer get messages from Cesar about couriers 
  taking drugs to Los Santos. By destroying the factory you have also shut 
  down the drug courier side-missions......

  You will also get two phone calls.

  The second phone call is from Jethro. Him and Cesar have compiled a 
  wishlist of cars and need to turn them around quick. He suggests that CJ 
  purchase the car dealership not far from the Garage to make things look 
  legitimate. The "CV" icon will now appear at Wang's Autos.

  But the first phone call comes from a mysterious person using an electronic 
  voice masker. He has information on CJ's brother and demands that he go 
  over to a ranch in Tierra Robada. And with that, you finally open up 
  the.....

The Desert area is mysterious and barren. There are plenty of small towns and
wide open areas. The major tourist attraction in this area is the Sherman
Dam. Fort Carson, to the south, is the largest town in this region.

When I first saw the town of Fort Carson on the enclosed map I had to smile.
You see, there is a real life Fort Carson. It is located on the southern edge
of Colorado Springs, Colorado and is also one of the largest Army bases in
the US. Fort Carson is also my birthplace (4/24/1967).

Las Venturas, based on Las Vegas, is every bit as glitzy as it's real life
counterpart. Plenty of money can be won, and lost, in the city's many
casinos. The outskirts of the city are much more mundane and quiet.

For those who decided to wait until getting to the Desert area to get
Oysters, here is the Oyster list:

[TR-Y35] - Between the north concrete support and the rock wall at the north 
           end of the Gant Bridge.

[TR-Y36] - Near the entrance of the small lagoon east of Bayside.

[TR-Y37] - By the roadside wall south of the tunnel (north entrance) 
           northwest of the Tierra Robada Safehouse.

[TR-Y38] - Underneath the pier at Sherman Reservoir just southwest of Valle 
           Ocultado.

[TR-Y39] - Underneath the bridge at the west part of the Sherman Reservior 
           northwest of the Sherman Dam.

[TR-Y40] - Underneath the west dam tower at the Sherman Dam.

[TR-Y41] - Underneath the small bridge south of Las Barrancas.

[TR-Y42] - In the small inlet just southwest of the "?" in Tierra Robada.

[TR-Y43] - In the small boathouse just southeast of the "?" in Tierra Robada.

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

At the east side of Bayside Marina is the Boat School. As before, you have to
pass various tests to complete the school and get closer to 100% Completion.
As before, you do NOT need to get all Golds to get 100% but the tests in the
Boat School are quite easy to get Golds in with a little bit of practice.

You also earn bonus vehicles for getting Bronze, Silver, and Gold
certificates. They can be found moored next to the school:

>>All Bronzes - Marquis.
>>All Silvers - Squallo.
>>All Golds - Jetmax.

Unlike the Driving School, which had twelve tests, you only have five tests
to pass at the Boat School:

Basic Seamanship
****************
  This is a very simple test. You have to accelerate and stop within the 
  designated area. Do this in under ten seconds to get the Gold.

Plot A Course
*************
  You have to go along a checkpoint course. Pretty easy to do. Do this in 
  under 35 seconds to get the Gold.

Fresh Slalom
************
  You use a Dinghy for this one. This is also a much longer course than the 
  last one. Doing this in under 80 seconds will get you the Gold.

Flying Fish
***********
  You have to use a Vortex to make a ramped jump. You have 45 seconds to make 
  the jump. The best thing to do is go right toward the Gant Bridge for a bit 
  then turn toward the ramp. This will give you a more straight shot at the 
  ramp. When in the air, pull back on the stick to help you get extra air. 
  Jumping over 75 meters or more will get you the Gold.

Land, Sea And Air
*****************
  This is a long checkpoint course using the Vortex. It starts on land and 
  goes back into the water. There are also a few ramps too. Even so, this is 
  not too hard. Doing this in under 130 seconds will get you the Gold.

 \=========================================================================/

With the Desert / Las Venturas area open I can now finally complete the last
two missions for RS Haul. However, these missions are harder than the last
six because they combine mission types. Plus you have to go a really long way
to drop off your cargo:

Mission #7
**********
  --Type = Fragile and Timed (6:00)
  --Bonus = $7,000.
  --Notes: Your destination is usually in the north part of the Desert / Las 
           Venturas area. This means that you have to keep a good speed to 
           get there on time but you also have to be careful because you 
           can't afford to smack too many cars. Try to use the main roads 
           whenever possible so you can go fast but have room to dodge cars.

Mission #8
**********
  --Type = Chase (4-Star)
  --Bonus = $10,000.
  --Notes: Once again your destination is in the north part of the Desert / 
           Las Venturas area. But now the cops are tougher to deal with 
           because of the high Wanted Rating. Just try to get to your 
           destination as fast as possible and keep the cops from unhitching 
           your trailer.

Once you complete the eighth mission you will complete the RS Haul Trucking
Asset Mission. You will gain a Money Icon in front of RS Haul and will max
out at $2,000.

 \=========================================================================/

Scattered throughout the city of Las Venturas are Horseshoes. There are 50
Horseshoes and each one collected will add a little bit to your Luck Stat
which will make it easier for you to win money at the casinos around town.

You will get $100 per Horseshoe and a $100,000 bonus when you get all 50.

In addition, the following weapons will spawn at the Four Dragons Casino on
the south part of the strip (where you'll do some missions later on in the
game):

  --Combat Shotgun
  --Remote Grenades
  --M4
  --SMG

The Horseshoe list is based on the numbering system within the Brady Guide
(Xbox / PC version) on pages 137-139.

Here is the Horseshoe list:

| D.I.6. Las Venturas Bike School                                           |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

South of the Blackfield Stadium in Las Venturas is the Bike School. There are
six tests to pass to get closer to 100% Completion. As with the Driving
School you have to be careful of positioning and cone damage.

You can also earn bonus vehicles for getting all Bronzes, Silvers, and Golds.
They can be found parked outside the school:

>>All Bronzes - Freeway.
>>All Silvers - FCR-900.
>>All Golds - NRG-500.

Here are the six tests:

The 360
*******
  You must do a 360 in less than 15 seconds. Not too hard to pass or get Gold 
  in.

The 180
*******
  You must go up the course, do a 180, and return to where you started in 
  under ten seconds. Not too hard to pass but a little harder to Gold because 
  you need to be in the right place when you stop.

The Wheelie
***********
  You have to get up to speed and do a wheelie within the designated area 
  then stop in another area in under ten seconds. You cannot have the front 
  wheel touching the ground in the wheelie area or else the test ends. Not 
  too hard to pass or get Gold in because you are moving in a straight line 
  from beginning to end.

Jump & Stop
***********
  You have to jump off a ramp and then stop in the designated area in under 
  ten seconds. Very easy to pass and get Gold in.

The Stoppie
***********
  I hate stoppies. I really hate them. Like The Wheelie, you have to do a 
  stoppie in the designated area then stop in another area in less than ten 
  seconds. I had a very hard time keeping the rear wheel from hitting the 
  ground. Either that or I ended up turning out of control and stopping which 
  ended the test. But you can get out of control a little bit and still end 
  up passing. Once you get past the stoppie area you can put your rear wheel 
  down and get back straight so you can stop properly in the ending area to 
  pass or even get Gold.

Jump & Stoppie
**************
  I hated the last test but I really despise this one. You have to jump, land 
  on the front wheel, and do a stoppie all the way to the designated area in 
  less than ten seconds. The test ends when the rear wheel touches the 
  ground. And in 98% of the attempts I did it always touched the ground when 
  I landed which was long before the designated area. This test is hard to 
  pass and much harder to Gold in. The thing to do is get enough speed so you 
  can roll a little bit when you land then let the rear tire hit the ground 
  when in the designated area to pass.

| D.I.7. Burger Shot Courier Asset Mission                                  |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

In Redsands East, parked outside a Burger Shot, is a moped (Faggio). By
getting on the Faggio you activate the Burger Shot Courier Asset Mission.
Like the Commerce 24-7 and Hippy Shopper Courier Asset Missions in Los Santos
and San Fierro you are required to drop off packages at various places around
Las Venturas then head back to the Burger Shot to complete the run.

Doing the four runs for this Asset Mission isn't too bad despite the slowness
of the Faggio. But the moped has better control and you are less likely to
wreck if you clip a car or corner.

Just like in the previous Courier Asset Missions you have to throw packages
through the red coronas shown on your map. You have do this Drive-By style
using the Look Left and Look Right buttons in conjunction with the Attack
Button.

If you miss you can get a second chance by picking up the package and trying
again. Part of your score is determined by how many packages you bring back
to the Burger Shot when you complete a level.

There are a total of four runs to complete:

Run #1
******
  --Coronas = 3
  --Packages = 6
  --Time Limit = 3 minutes

Run #2
******
  --Coronas = 4
  --Packages = 6
  --Time Limit = 5 minutes

Run #3
******
  --Coronas = 5
  --Packages = 7
  --Time Limit = 5 minutes

Run #4
******
  --Coronas = 6
  --Packages = 8
  --Time Limit = 8 minutes

For the last run start at Blackfield Stadium, go northeast then south. Then
go back the Burger Shot to complete the last run.

Upon completion you gain a Money Icon outside the Burger Shot and it will
max out at $2,000.

| D.I.8. KickStart and DirtTrack (Blackfield Stadium)                       |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

In the southwest part of Las Venturas is the Blackfield Stadium. Here you can
do two different stadium events. Which event you get to do depends on what
day of the week it is:

0===========0
| KickStart |
0===========0

  You pick this event up on any day except Monday and Wednesday. This event 
  is similar to the DirtRing event in Vice City. Here you have all kinds of 
  various obstacles to climb and acquire coronas. Unlike the DirtRing event 
  you don't have to get all of the coronas.

  You'll also see that these coronas come on three colors. Each color 
  represents a different point value. The green coronas are worth one point, 
  yellow coronas are worth two points, and red coronas are worth three 
  points.

  When you start the event, you have four minutes to get as many points as 
  possible. You have to get 26 points to successfully complete the event. 

  The nice thing about this event is that you can pick and choose which 
  stunts to do in order to succeed in this event.
  
  The most points can be had by climbing the ramps and blocks straight ahead 
  from the door but those damn cylinder ramps are a pain to deal with. If you 
  can get all of the coronas off of that then you are in good shape. There is 
  also some blocks with ramps not far from that (with a red and green corona) 
  where you can get some easy points. There is also some rocks with a log and 
  a large pipe not far from the door that has a red corona on the end that 
  can be somewhat easy to get.

  If you can get the points off of these stunts, then just go around and do 
  the simpler green corona stunts to get the rest of the points needed to 
  successfully complete the event.

  In addition, a high Bike Skill will make this event easier.

  When you successfully complete the event you will spawn the Dune vehicle in 
  front of the stadium. If you decide to do this event later, you will have 
  to break your old score in order to successfully complete the event.

0===========0
| DirtTrack |
0===========0

  You can only pick up this event on Mondays and Wednesdays. This is a race 
  event. Here you race against eleven other racers on a winding dirt track. 
  The vehicle of choice is the Sanchez and you do six laps on this track.

  You can use a machine gun on the other riders. But they are very tough to 
  destroy. However, you can spook them into wrecking or hitting walls so you 
  can pass them.

  In addition, there is one place about a quarter of the way up the track 
  where the other riders always seem to wipe out at. Once you see it, 
  carefully go through this area to get past most of the riders. Keep close 
  to the others in front of you and then pass them up when they wipe out in 
  this area on the second lap to get into first place.

  I've had a couple of readers make suggestions concerning parking at this 
  spot and killing the other riders when they wreck. But I have not been able 
  to get them working for me quite yet.

  As with the previous event, a high Bike Skill helps to make this event 
  easier.

  Getting first place will net you $25,000 and spawn the BF Injection in 
  front of the stadium.

Now that all of San Andreas is open you can finally do the Freight Mission.
This requires the use of a train. You can go to any of the five train
stations around San Andreas to jack one. When you get one, press Activate
Vehicle Mission to begin.

There are two levels to this mission. The first level requires that you make
five successful consecutive deliveries to each of the five train stations in
San Andreas. After you complete the first level you can either press Activate
Vehicle Mission to start level two or get out and do other things before
doing level two. Level two is exactly like level one except that the money is
doubled.

You only have two buttons to concern yourself with - Accelerate and Reverse.
You are also stuck with the cinematic camera for the duration of the mission.

Underneath the Health Line is Time (how much time you have left), Distance
(how far you are to the next station), and Speed (how fast you are going).

To make a successful delivery you have to stop the train so that your cab is
in the red circle. If you do this correctly you will get $150 plus 15 extra
seconds (in addition to the regular time added). If you don't do this right
your bonus and extra time will be reduced. For level two your money bonus
will be a maximum of $300.

Hold down Accelerate to get the train up to speed. Get the speed up to about
44 and no higher. Wait until the distance is about 350 then hit the brakes.
You should be entering the station at a slow speed and you can gently ease
the front of the train into the red circle to get your bonus. If you
overshoot you will waste valauble time backing the train up.

Upon successful completion of level two you will get $50,000 and inch closer
to 100% Completion

| D.I.10. The Ammu-Nation Challenge                                         |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

When you opened up the Ammu-Nations after "Doberman" (Sweet Johnson) you also
opened up the Ammu-Nation Challenge. The Challenge is done on the indoor
shooting range of most Ammu-Nations. Here is where you can do the Challenge:

  --Downtown Los Santos (Los Santos).
  --Blueberry (Red County).
  --Palomino Creek (Red County).
  --Ocean Flats (San Fierro).
  --El Quebrados (Tierra Robada).
  --Las Venturas
  --Old Venturas Strip (Las Venturas).

The Challenge is comprised of four main stages each using a particular
weapon:

  Stage 1 - Pistol.
  Stage 2 - Micro SMG.
  Stage 3 - Shotgun.
  Stage 4 - AK47.

However, when you first open up the Ammu-Nations, only the first two stages
are available. The Shotgun stage becomes available when you open up the
Badlands / San Fierro area and the AK47 stage becomes available after you
open up the Desert / Las Venturas area. This is why I waited until now to do
the Challenge.

You must do all four weapon stages one after the other in order to complete
the Challenge. You are also in competition with two other shooters on the
range. If they outshoot you and you fail, when you redo the Challenge, you
must start over with the Pistol and work your way back up again.

Each Weapon Stage is comprised of three smaller stages:

Stage 1
*******
  You must shoot off all seven pieces of the stationary target ahead of you 
  in order to destroy it. After destroying the first target, a second target 
  will appear and further away than the first. Destroy the second target and 
  a third target will appear and near the back wall. Destroy the third target 
  to move to the next stage.

Stage 2
*******
  A target will appear in the back and will move forward towards you. Destroy 
  the first target and a second target will appear in the back and will head 
  toward you. Destroy the second target and a third target will appear in the 
  back and will move toward you. Destroy the third target to move to the next 
  stage.

Stage 3
*******
  A target will drop down from the ceiling and move around the range area. 
  Now it becomes a free-for-all. You must destroy the target pieces and score 
  twenty points before your rivals do. If you get to twenty points, you will 
  either move on to the next Weapon Stage or complete the Challenge.

To make the Challenge easier you should have Hitman Weapon Skill Level for
each of the four weapons prior to doing the Challenge. This will allow you to
duel wield the Pistol and Micro SMG as well as increase your rate of fire.

Even if you get Hitman Weapon Skill Level on all of your weapons there is
still one stage that can give you fits - Shotgun (Stage 3). For some reason,
both of the computer rivals can destroy more than one target at a time which
is something you can't do. This often leads to them winning most of the time.
This is very aggrivating especially when you consider that you need to go
through both the Pistol and Micro SMG Weapon Stages just to get back to the
Shotgun Stage.

The best thing to do here is wait until the target is completely down before
firing. Hold down the Attack button and only let up when the entire target is
destroyed. Try to aim for another target piece while reloading. This will
increase your chances of hitting your next target piece when you fire again.

After Shotgun (Stage 3), it gets easier. The computer is not as aggresive in
the AK47 Weapon Stage.

When you complete the AK47 Weapon Stage you will complete the Ammu-Nation
Challenge. You will also get an increase in Weapon Skill and $10,000 plus
another step toward 100% Completion.

with the story. However, I am going to tie up some loose ends in San Fierro
before proceeding into Tierra Robada.

After completing all of the above tasks I went and bought Wang's Autos for
$50,000. Now the "CV" will move over to the Xoomer Garage. This begins a
string of missions to acquire cars for the new dealership.....

The Plan
0======0
  You have to chase the target vehicle so you can stop it and steal it. You 
  have to follow the blip around so you can get an accurate position on the 
  target. When you get close to a blip, it will change position.

  Eventually, you will get close enough to see the target vehicle. You need 
  to spin her out so she will exit the vehicle. Easier said than done. When 
  you finally find her she will be driving like a maniac. Plus she is gonig 
  down the narrow San Fierro streets. This will make this mission 
  challenging. However, the faster you can get to her, the better because you 
  have a good chance of getting her before she gets down to the Ocean Flats 
  area.

  Once you spin her out and take her car, drive it over to the Xoomer Garage 
  to complete the mission.

Reward
0====0
  $5,000 plus Respect Gained. In addition, you can now mod cars at ArchAngels 
  in Ocean Flats plus the cars you steal will be found in Wang's Autos.

The Plan
0======0
  Get a car and take Cesar with you to Otto's Autos near Pier 69. After the 
  cutscene, drive off the second floor and into the street. You heve to keep 
  up with Cesar or you will fail the mission.

  First, he will play around with the trolley forcing you to weave around the 
  Big Pointy Building. The path will lead up the hill near the baseball 
  player statue. As you get near the signal light, you will get a 2-Star 
  Wanted Rating and the cops will now chase you.

  But be very careful as you turn right at the light - you might run right 
  smack into the trolley heading in the opposite direction. Getting pushed 
  backward by the trolley will most likely lead to mission failure. Just slow 
  down as you get to the turn and stay right of the trolley tracks.

  If you manage to get past the trolley you will head toward the Church in 
  Calton Heights. As you turn left toward the tunnel, Cesar will activate the 
  Nitro in his car and you should do the same to keep up.

  After the tunnel, Cesar will turn right and head down a hill and go through 
  Juniper Hollow and into Paradiso. CJ will then tell Cesar that it is time 
  to go back to the Garage.

  But, as you get to the top of the hill, the cops show up again and begin 
  chasing you both. Another tricky area is just ahead of this point. At the 
  next signal light there is another car trying to turn in the intersection 
  and is getting in the way. Get around that and continue.

  Later, Cesar will get smacked by the cops but gets through that. He decides 
  to cut through a park and head back toward Downtown. As you get to past the 
  trolley station, Cesar decides to take a shortcut through an alley. But the 
  cops cut him off and you have to back out.

  Ater backing out of the alley, Cesar will go through a road under 
  construction. Weave through the obstacles and into the next street. From 
  here, go back to the Garage to end the mission.

Reward

  $5,000 plus Respect Gained.

  loaded up on the docks. CJ decides to check it out.....

The Plan
0======0
  Get in the car with Cesar and drive to the Docks. Get out near the crane 
  and enter it.

  The person who gave the tip to Cesar said that the crate with the car was 
  marked with spray paint. But when you enter the crane, you find out that 
  none of the three crates are marked. So now you have to go through them one 
  at a time.

  The game will then instruct you on how to use the crane. X and Circle (PS2) 
  or A and B (Xbox) will drop and raise the magnet respectively. Use the 
  shadow of the magnet to judge it's position over an object. Drop the magnet 
  over the object to grab it. When you drop the object, press Circle to let 
  go. You also use the Left Analog Stick to rotate the crane arm and move the 
  crane along it's tracks.

  Grab one of the crates and bring down into the red circle. Gently place it 
  on the ground. Cesar will tell CJ that it is not the right one. Go and grab 
  another crate. Drop this one into the red circle. Cesar will tell CJ that 
  it is not the right one. Get the third crate and place it into the red 
  circle. That will have the right car. I should note that the right car will 
  always be in the last crate regardless of what order of the crates you go 
  in.

  After you get the target car, you will be attacked by guards. They will 
  come up in a car and attack Cesar. You must get out of the crane and help 
  defend Cesar. After killing the three guards, another car comes up with 
  more guards. Kill them and two more show up on foot. Kill those and then 
  get in the car.

  Now drive to the Garage. It should be noted that your reward is tied into 
  the condition of the car. If you damage the car, you will get less money. 
  Take it to the nearby Pay N' Spray if you ding the car.

  Once you get to the Garage, the mission will be completed.

Reward
0====0
  $10,000 (maximum) plus Respect Gained. In addition, you will open up.....

| D.II.1. Vehicle Exports And Imports                                       |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Go back to the Docks and to the large crane where you did the last mission to
do the Exports and Imports. The blackboard where the list can be found is
near the drydock gates not far from the crane. There are three lists to
complete with ten cars on each list. Each list will tell what cars you need
to bring in.

You can also import cars for your own use from the same ship. When you get to
the blackboard you can press Enter Vehicle to view which cars you can buy.
When you start there are only Clubs, Jesters, and Perennials on the list.

However, what cars you can buy is also determined by what day of the week it
is. If the day you approach the blackboard is on Tuesday then you can only
buy the cars that are under Tuesday.

Cars that you export can also be imported when you cross them off the list.
The first car you bring will appear on Saturday's list, the second will
appear on Sunday's list, and so forth.

One very valuable resource, and one that I recommend, that I used for this
part of the guide is the Vehicle Location Map drawn up by GamerLady (and can
be found at GameFAQs).

In the past, when you need a specific car, you had to wander aimlessly
waiting for one to spawn so you can take it. For San Andreas it has been
changed a bit to reduce that. Now, every car on the lists can be found parked
somewhere so you can just take it without waiting for it to randomly spawn.

But GamerLady noticed that there are two different car spawn types.

A "Normal" car spawn is where you can find a specific car parked in a
specific spot at anytime during the game. An example would be the Journey
which is always parked at the Film Studio in Los Santos.

A "List" car spawn is where you can find a specific car parked in a specific
spot ONLY when it appears on the car list. An example would be the Slamvan.
It is parked behind the Nude Shop in El Corona (Los Santos) when on the list
but cannot be found there before and after the list.

It should be noted that the car might not be be where it should be when you
get to it's parking spot. You might have to go around and come back to get it
to appear.

In addition, you gain bonus cars to import when you complete five and all ten
cars on a list.

Of course, you also get paid when you bring in a car. If the car is damaged
you get less money. The best way to maximize your profit is to get the car
repaired prior to bringing it in (either by using a Pay N' Spray or putting
it in a garage and letting the door close - the magic repair trick) and use
the railroad tracks near the Cranberry Station to get it to the ship
undamaged. Also you need to use the crane to keep it unscathed.

The cars will be listed as follows:

Name: Car name.
Description: What it looks like.
Spawn Type: Normal or List
Location: The closest, best, and/or only location it is found. May contain 
          additional notes.
Reward: How much you get when you bring it in undamaged.
Cost: How much you pay when you get one imported.

| List One |

Name: Patriot.
Description: A standard military issue Humvee.
Spawn Type: Normal and List.
Location: The Normal spawn location is at the Easter Basin Naval Station. Of 
          course, you get a 5-Star Wanted Rating if you try to get it from 
          there. Fairly hazardous. However, when it appears on the list it 
          will also spawn within the parking lot for Easter Bay Chemicals. 
          Get the Patriot from here instead of trying to get it from the 
          Naval Station. Much easier. Easier still is if you took advantage 
          of the RTF-Expolit earlier and stored a Patriot in the Xoomer 
          Garage while exploring the San Fierro area.
Reward: $40,000.

The Plan
0======0
  Get in the marked car. It has modified to use Stingers. These Stingers are 
  used to blow out tires. You need to get in front of the target car and use 
  a Stinger to blow the tires so you can get the car. Be careful, you only 
  have three Stingers to use.

  When you get in the car, the target car will appear on the radar. She will 
  be heading south toward Angel Pine. You need to get in front of her and 
  press Attack to drop a Stinger and pop her tires.

  But she will be driving fast and weaving around the traffic on the narrow 
  streets near Angel Pine making things a little tricky. But it's really not 
  that hard to get in front of her to use the Stinger.

  Once you pop the tires, get out of your car and go towards hers. You will 
  get a call from Cesar and CJ tells him of the acquisition. CJ also repairs 
  the blown tires.

  From there, just drive on over to the Garage to end the mission.

Reward

The Plan
0======0
  The vehicle is a big Monster truck. You have to navigate a checkpoint 
  course that winds through the desert area in less than 6:30 to pass. There 
  are 35 checkpoints to get.

  In addition, the truck has a four-wheel steering system instead of a 
  handbrake. What this means is that when you press Handbrake all four tires 
  turn when you turn the vehicle. This allows you to turn the truck on a dime 
  for very sharp cornering although it still swerves a bit when you exit the 
  turn. It takes a little while to get used to.

  The truck allows you to make your own path to each checkpoint. Be careful 
  to use the Reverse to brake instead of using Handbrake if you need to slow 
  down.

  When you get back to the ranch, you will be compared on a high score list 
  with previous drivers. The better your time, the more flattering the 
  comments. This also ends the mission.

Reward

  Get on the motorcycle and take Cesar with you to go after the truck. The 
  truck is on the Garver Bridge heading into San Fierro. Go on the freeway 
  and onto the Garver Bridge to go after the truck.

  When you get to the truck, you need to get close to the driver and hold 
  that position for a few seconds so Cesar can jump onto the truck. This is a 
  little tricky because the driver of the truck is weaving through traffic 
  and knocking the cars around.

  When Ceasr finally gets in the truck, there is a few seconds where he is 
  struggling with the driver. After that, the truck stops. Now get in the 
  truck and drive it to the Xoomer Garage to end the mission.

  Go to the ruins at Aldea Malvada to get some Heat-Seeking Rocket Launchers.

Notes

  None.

The Plan
0======0
  You need to go over to El Castillo del Diablo to drop the flare. But first 
  you need to go over to the ghost town in Las Brujas. Use the BF Injection 
  nearby to get there. When you get to the ghost town, you are provided with 
  a Rocket Launcher and the use of three different vehicles to get you up to 
  El Castillo del Diablo.

  Don't bother with the Rocket Launcher - just take a vehicle (I prefer the 
  Sanchez) and get up to the blip.

  When you get there, CJ will drop the flare. As the helicopter approaches it 
  is intercepted by black helicopters. You must protect the large helicopter 
  from the black helicopters. This is where the Heat-Seeking Rocket Launchers 
  come into play.

  You will deal with a total of five black helicopters but only two will show 
  to attack at any one time. Aim the Heat-Seeking Rocket Launcher at a black 
  helicopter and track it until the reticle becomes red. Then launch and 
  forget. The rocket will do the rest. Target another black helicopter and 
  repeat the process. Using the heat seekers makes this part of the mission 
  easy.

  Make sure that the black helicopter you target is not too close to you or 
  you may get hurt when it crashes near you. When you destroy all five black 
  helicopters, the large helicopter will fly off and drop a package near the 
  Verdant Meadows Aircraft Graveyard.

  Get back on the vehicle and drive off to get it. You will find the package 
  just north of the aircraft graveyard. Pick it up and take it back to Las 
  Brujas to complete the mission.

Toreno wants CJ to go over to the Verdant Meadows Aircraft Graveyard and buy
it for him. He is to offer them a dollar and kill the owners if they give him
a hard time.

This is not a mission per se. Just go on over and buy the property. However,
it is abondoned and it will cost you $80,000. In buying the property you are
also opening up.....

| D.II.3. "Learning To Fly" (Verdant Meadows Flight School)                 |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

After buying the Verdant Meadows Aircraft Graveyard you open up the Verdant
Meadows Flight School (operated by Mike Toreno). There are ten tests to pass
in order to proceed further in the story.

Like the other schools you also get bonus vehicles for getting all Bronzes,
Silvers, and Golds. They can be found parked near your Verdant Meadows
Safehouse:

>>All Bronzes - Rustler.
>>All Silvers - Stuntplane.
>>All Golds - Hunter.

If you want to use the Hunter in the Vigilante Mission or for general
mischief you need to get all Golds here. Fortunately, most of the tests are
easy to get Golds in but there are a couple that will be a little
frustrating.

Here are the ten tests:

Takeoff
*******
  You have to lift off and fly though three coronas. Very easy to pass. Do 
  this in 30 seconds to get Gold.

Land Plane
**********
  You have to fly through one corona and land the plane. Then stop in the 
  designated area. You can't let the nose touch the ground or you will incur 
  a damage penalty. Do this in under 30 seconds to get the Gold.

Circle Airstrip
***************
  You have to fly a circular course near the airfield. You are also given a 
  choice of a Counterclockwise or Clockwise direction. Not too hard to pass. 
  Do this in under a minute to get Gold.

Circle Airstrip And Land
************************
  This is harder than the last test. You fly the same circular course but now 
  you have to land the plane into the designated area. Screwing up the 
  landings is what may cost you some chances to pass the test. Do this 
  perfectly in under 80 seconds to get the Gold.

Helicopter Takeoff
******************
  You must liftoff, rise straight up then level, turn around, and fly through 
  a corona. Very easy to pass and you will probably get the Gold just by 
  completing it the first time.

Land Helicopter
***************
  You must now land the helicopter. Very easy to pass. May take a couple of 
  tries to get the Gold.

Destroy Targets
***************
  You have to destroy three static targets on the runway then two moving 
  targets near the Snake Farm. Then land the Hunter afterwards. This is a 
  little harder because of lining up the targets and trying to destroy them 
  as quickly as possible. You can get Gold if you do this in under 90 
  seconds.

Loop-The-Loop
*************
  The Stuntplane you use has very sensitive controls making it hard to 
  control. But it is not too bad here because you are going in a straight 
  line. You have to go through two coronas. After passing through the first 
  corona, pull back the stick to do the loop then fly through the second 
  corona to end the test. Fairly easy to pass but more frustrating to Gold 
  in. Why? Because of the very tight time limit. You need to do this in 21 
  seconds to get the Gold and I always seem to end up with 22 seconds. The 
  best way to get the necessary speed to make an attempt at Gold is after the 
  first corona wait until you are near the second corona to do the loop 
  instead of doing it after the first one. Also keeping the plane straight 
  after the loop will improve your chances at Gold.

Barrel Roll
***********
  This test is much harder than the last one. You have to use the Stuntplane 
  to fly through one corona, do a barrel roll, then fly through the second 
  corona to end the test. The extremely sensitive controls of the Stuntplane 
  make it very easy for you to corkscrew it into the ground. It will take 
  many attempts before you can get the handle on this plane. You need to do 
  this in 18 seconds or less to get the Gold.

Parachute Onto Target
*********************
  You have to skydive down the deploy your chute. Then you have to glide to a 
  target area. The target are is divided into scores. You have to land in the 
  center to increase your chances for passing. This is very easy to pass and 
  get Gold in. When you start, push forward to speed down. When you are 
  prompted to deploy your parachute wait five seconds then deploy. Then pull 
  back on the stick to help you land in the center. Landing in the center in 
  less than a minute will get you the Gold.

After successfully completing the Flight School you will open up the Verdant
Meadows Aircraft Graveyard Asset Missions. You will also get a call from Wu
Zi Mu inviting you to come over to Las Venturas to check out his new place.

But I am going to do something that came up during "Verdant Meadows" (Mike
Toreno) first......

During "Verdant Meadows" (Mike Toreno) you will get a call from Jethro. He
informs CJ about illegal street races that take place all over San Andreas.

After the phone call four checkered flag icons appear on your in-game map.
These are where you can pick up the Race Tournaments.

One is in Los Santos, one is in San Fierro, and two are in Las Venturas. You
do these races in a variety of vehicles and terrians.

Each race listed will also include the vehicle you use.

Winning a race will earn you $10,000 and winning all of the races in all four
tournaments will earn you $1,000,000 plus an additional step toward 100%

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

The Los Santos Race Tournaments can be picked up behind a building just east
of the Alhambra Club in Little Mexico. There are nine races but you have
already done three of them in earlier missions. Those three races are here in
case you want to improve your best time.

Race #1 - The Lowrider Race (Blade)
***********************************
  You did this one in "High Stakes, Low Rider" (Cesar Vialpando). You do not 
  have to do this again unless you want to improve your best time. The only 
  difference is in the car you use.

Race #2 - Little Loop (NRG-500)
*******************************
  This is a very short course. Although you can shoot up your opponents it is 
  best to concetrate on the course because of it's short length.

Race #3 - Backroad Wanderer (FCR-900)
*************************************
  I hated this one. The crooked roads and the hills made it hard to get 
  ahead, and stay ahead, of my rivals. Plus the bikes were tougher to shoot 
  up as well. The best thing to do is stay focused on the riding. You can 
  easily screw up on these roads if you try to take out any of your 
  opponents.

Race #4 - City Circuit (FCR-900)
********************************
  A bit easier than the last race because the course is longer and is more of 
  an oval shape. There is also an excellent opportunity at the beginning to 
  use your machine gun to take out at least one of the competitors and screw 
  up the others. It's pretty easy to get into first place and stay there.

Race #5 - Vinewood (Sunrise)
****************************
  This one's worse than Backroad Wanderer. The Sunrise is not a good racing 
  car at all. Difficult to corner at high speed and it doesn't climb well 
  either. And you have to go through some of the same course you went through 
  with Backroad Wanderer. Slow down when you go down the hill leading to the 
  road bridge in Mulholland. This will allow you to maintain control. 
  Hopefully most of your opponents wipe out here giving you a chance to win. 
  When you get back down into Los Santos the course becomes easier. There are 
  a couple of long straightaways that will allow you to pass up any opponents 
  that are in your way.

Race #6 - Freeway (Super GT)
****************************
  You go up against five other sports cars on this course. The Super GT has a 
  tendency to spin around 180 degrees when you barely clip something thus 
  making it a frustrating car to use. The best thing to do is to get into the 
  incoming lane and try to keep out of their way and make your move when you 
  get to the Didier Sachs billboard since you can cut though the median and 
  gain position. The other challenge is maintaining control of your car. It 
  slides easy so you may find yourself smacking into things if you're not 
  careful. The car's not durable either so you could find yourself blowing it 
  up if you run into too many things.

Race #7 - Into The Country (Bullet)
***********************************
  The Bullet is a much better car than the Super GT. You can gain position 
  very quickly and even be in first place before getting out of Ocean Docks. 
  Despite the length of the course this is an easy race. However, it should 
  be noted, that the traffic will play a role in your success or failure. On 
  the freeways the traffic has a nasty habit of switching lanes regardless of 
  who's in the other lane or coming up behind them. Getting snagged by the 
  traffic will either lead to losing position or your car since the Bullet is 
  not much more durable than the Super GT.

Race #8 - Badlands A (Sabre)
****************************
  You did this one in "Wu Zi Mu" (Cesar Vialpando). You do not have to do 
  this again unless you want to improve your best time. The only difference 
  is that you have to use a Sabre instead of the car you chose when doing the 
  mission.

Race #9 - Badlands B (ZR-350)
*****************************
  You did this one in "Farewell, My Love..." (Cesar Vialpando). You do not 
  have to do this again unless you want to improve your best time.

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

The San Fierro Race Tournaments can be picked up behind Wang's Autos in
Downtown. There are six races to be done.

Race #1 - Dirtbike Danger (Sanchez)
***********************************
  You go through the Back O Beyond area on a Sanchez. This one is pretty easy 
  and you may be able to shoot up a couple of your opponents for good 
  measure.

Race #2 - Bandito Country (Bandito)
***********************************
  This race also takes place in Back O Beyond. The Bandito is a bit unstable 
  and you can flip it over easy. However, you can pass your rivals quickly in 
  the beginning so you can focus on the course and maintaining control of the 
  Bandito.

Race #3 - GO-GO Karting (Kart)
******************************
  This race is unusual in that you use a Kart similar to the type you find at 
  amusement parks. It is capable of incredibly sharp turns. It will take a 
  little time to get used to it but once you do it will be okay.

Race #4 - San Fierro Fastlane (Alpha)
*************************************
  Now things start to get a little harder. The Alpha is another car that can 
  get spun around easily when it hits something. The course has plenty of 
  hills and curves and traffic to make things interesting. The main goal is 
  to be in first place when you reach the top of the hill after passing the 
  parking garage for Pier 69. If not, it will be difficult to get first place 
  after that point.

Race #5 - San Fierro Hills (Phoenix)
************************************
  The Phoenix is also another one of those slider cars (where it spins 180 
  degrees when you smack a lightpole and swerves a lot when trying to make 
  turns). The first part of the course is kind of hard because of the hills 
  but when you reach the freeway you can cut loose. Then it gets hard again 
  because of Missionary Hill. The traffic on that hill can make things 
  tricky. Your opponents may be able to catch up to you here but once you get 
  back on the freeway you can get ahead of them again. Once you get past the 
  Xoomer Gas Station, it is pretty much smooth sailing from there.

Race #6 - Country Endurance (Bullet)
************************************
  The Bullet is a much better car than the Phoenix. This course is long but 
  there are plenty of opportunities to get ahead. The traffic disappears when 
  you get past the bridge leading back into Red County, comes back again for 
  a short time when near the Los Santos Inlet, then reappears when you get 
  near the San Fierro area. There are also plenty of places to fly off the 
  course which you can easily do when you forget how much power the Bullet 
  has. The hairpin turns in the middle and the end of the course are places 
  where you can get off the course. The curve near the Whetstone Safehouse is 
  another major danger spot.

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

The Las Venturas Race Tournaments (Cars) can be picked up behind a building
in the southern part of LVA Freight Depot. There are only four races to be
done but they are more lengthy than the others.

Race #1 - SF to LV (Banshee)
****************************
  Despit the length this race isn't too hard. It's a little tricky in the 
  beginning because of your rivals trying to get position. However, most of 
  them will get caught up in the toll booths for the Gant Bridge so you can 
  get to first place rather quickly. You still have to be wary of the traffic 
  because of their lane switching and you certaintly don't want to get caught 
  up in that.

Race #2 - Dam Rider (NRG-500)
*****************************
  At the beginning you can use your machine gun to mess up or even take out 
  some of your opponents. This will help you get to first place quickly. 
  There are also a few little shortcuts that can help you to stay in first 
  place.

Race #3 - Desert Tricks (FCR-900)
*********************************
  Your opponents are much better so it is a little harder to pass them up. 
  There is a little shortcut at the hairpin turn just as you get to the road. 
  You can use the long straightaway across the bridge to get some speed. 
  Usually the leader will stumble just past the Xoomer Gas Station thus 
  allowing you to pass him up. If he tries to pass you up just use your 
  machine gun on him to take him out.

Race #4 - LV Ringroad (Turismo)
*******************************
  The course involves you going around Las Venturas using the main freeways. 
  The hard part is dealing with the traffic. The best thing to do is get on 
  the right shoulder and stay there. This will allow you to pass up traffic, 
  and your opponents, with ease. Just be careful when you get to exit ramps 
  because of the traffic trying to use them.

 \=========================================================================/

The Las Venturas (Aircraft) Race Tournaments can be picked up behind a
building just to the right of the airport gate at Las Venturas Airport. There
are six races to be done but they are done with aircraft instead of cars.

The main thing about these races are that you don't have opponents to deal
with. Take your time through the courses and you should be fine.

Race #1 - World War Ace (Rustler)
*********************************
  The Rustler is an old WWII plane. It has good speed and handles okay. The 
  course winds through Downtown Los Santos and through the country and back 
  again. The early part of the course is the hardest because of the hill at 
  Verdant Bluffs and the checkpoint between buildings. If you have trouble 
  trying to get it back under control, if you swerve around too much trying 
  to get checkpoints, put down the landing gear. It will serve as a brake to 
  help you get a handle on the plane.

Race #2 - Barnstorming (Stuntplane)
***********************************
  This race can be a real pain because of the plane that you use. As you have 
  already found out during Flight School, the Stuntplane has very sensitive 
  controls and it is very easy to wipe out the plane. It also has a nasty 
  tendency to sputter when trying to climb. This can be a problem in the 
  middle of the course when you need to go up a hillside and over some trees. 
  Another problem spot is when you have to turn left and go under a bridge in 
  south Flint County. Use the Look Left and Look Right buttons to gently turn 
  the plane when it is level. Also make fine movements of the stick to 
  maintain control. I also found out that tapping Accelerate also allows me 
  to maintain a solid but controlable speed.

Race #3 - Military Service (Hydra)
**********************************
  The Hydra is a VTOL (Vertical TakeOff and Landing) plane that is based on 
  the Harrier jet. Since that this is probably the first time you will be 
  flying the plane here is a handy piece of info. To go from vertical liftoff 
  mode to jet mode, push up on the Right Analog Stick for a few seconds. When 
  you need to go from jet mode to landing mode, pull back on the Right Analog 
  Stick for a few seconds. The best thing to do is leave the landing gear 
  down when you do the course. This will slow down the jet a bit but will 
  allow you to maintain control of the Hydra. The only problem part comes 
  when you get near the Restricted Area. The first time you get near it, try 
  to stay near the mesas to your left and clip the corona with your right 
  wing. When you come around the second time try to clip the corona with your 
  left wing. As you fly over the southwest portion of San Fierro near the end 
  of the course you may want to put up the landing gear to improve your time.

Race #4 - Chopper Checkpoint (Maverick)
***************************************
  This is not much different than the Chopper Checkpoint Races done in Vice 
  City. The Maverick is a easy to control chopper plus the course isn't too 
  hard either. You should have no problems here unless you really suck at 
  flying helicopters.

Race #5 - Whirly Bird Waypoint (Maverick)
*****************************************
  You still use the same helicopter as in the last race but the course is 
  much harder. You have to go inbetween buildings a lot during the first half 
  of the course. Make careful movements and take your time. Once you get out 
  near the clock tower and head north, the course will get a lot easier.

Race #6 - Heli Hell (Hunter)
****************************
  In the open, the Hunter makes an excellent offensive weapon. But in the 
  confines of Los Santos it doesn't do so well. It's fast but it really 
  doesn't turn on a dime so it handles like a pig in close quarters. It is 
  very difficult to fly this thing without smacking it into the buildings. 
  Really take your time and ease gently into the coronas. The hardest part of 
  the course is getting the corona from under the Mulholland Intersection. As 
  you get near Verdant Bluffs the course gets easier.

  One of my readers, Anders Paulson, suggested that, if you have trouble 
  getting Gold in the Flight School (to acquire the Hunter), you can actually 
  save the Hunter used in Heli Hell. When you start the race, fly up to the 
  Verdant Meadows Aircraft Graveyard. There is a large hangar where you can 
  save aircraft. Carefully fly the Hunter into the hangar and exit. You will 
  eventually be disqualified for leaving the aircraft but it will be saved 
  for you at the hangar. Almost as good as getting Gold in Flight School.

The Plan
0======0
  Get in the Rustler and head to the runway. You have ten minutes to drop the 
  stuff off and fly back. The drop point is in Angel Pine. You also have to 
  fly low or you will show up on the radar.

  If your Visibility Bar maxes out you will be spotted and some Hydras will 
  fly toward you to check you out. Duck back under the radar to throw them 
  off. If you are still visible then they will fire on you. Duck the missiles 
  or you will be destroyed.

  The best route is to fly through the canyon until you reach open water. 
  From there head northwest under the Kincaid and Garver Bridges then head 
  west and go under the Gant Bridge. After that turn south and head to Angel 
  Pine. Once at Angel Pine go through the corona to drop off the equipment. 
  From there, head back the same way you came.

  After going back under the Gant Bridge, head in a slight northeastern 
  direction. Head for the Sherman Reservior. Once there head north toward the 
  bridge then head east. This is so you can line yourself up better with the 
  airfield. When you get near the airfield, put down your landing gear and 
  ease down onto the runway.

  Once you have landed the plane and stopped in the red circle the mission is 
  completed.

The Plan
0======0
  There are two parts to this mission.

  The first part involves getting on the plane. You need to go up the ramp of 
  the plane using a motorcycle. However, when you start your approach, the 
  plane will be trying to take off. Worse, somebody on the plane will be 
  throwing barrels down the ramp in an attempt to keep you from getting on 
  the plane. If you get knocked off course by a barrel, restart. You won't be 
  able to straighten back out and make another attempt at the ramp before the 
  plane takes off. This may take several tries before you succeed because the 
  barrels come out in different patterns each attempt.

  The second part is when you get on the plane. First, you need to go near 
  the front of the plane and get a Parachute then plant the explosives. 
  However, there are still barrels coming down the middle of the plane. There 
  are also several agents throughout the plane that need to be dealt with but 
  you can't shoot them. If you do that the plane will explode and you will 
  fail the mission.

  Gradually go up the plane and dispose of the agents with your melee weapon 
  of choice. Get the Parachute off the last agent so you can get off the 
  plane. At the very front of the plane plant the Remote Explosive (if you 
  don't have any you will be provided with one). Then exit the plane through 
  the rear ramp to complete the mission.

Reward
0====0
  $20,000. In addition, you will be freefalling so you will need to parachute 
  safely to the ground. However, you will be really high up. I mean really 
  high. You start freefalling way above the maximum flight ceiling somewhere 
  over Fort Carson. If you use the parachute you can actually glide all the 
  way back to Verdant Meadows (while avoiding the Restricted Area).

  CJ hooks up with The Truth again and together they head off to a place not 
  on any map.....

Weapons

  Silenced Pistol (300+ rounds), M4.

The Plan
0======0
  The Truth wants you to go into Area 69 and get the Black Project under 
  development. The best way into the bunker complex is through the blast 
  doors. There are also searchlights and soldiers on patrol. If you are seen 
  the blast doors will be locked down and you will have to find another way 
  inside.

  You will be given Thermal Goggles and several ways that you can get through 
  this area. You need to get in by 0530 or you will fail the mission.

  When you start you will be outside the entrance and you will also see a 
  Body Armor icon near the inside of the entrance. The fastest way is through 
  stealth and using the Silenced Pistol to kill any nearby soldiers. Avoid 
  the searchlights and head to the control tower. Once there, step into the 
  red circle to open the blast doors and run to them before they close again. 
  If you are spotted and there is a lockdown, go to the nearby vents to gain 
  entrance. At the end of the vent shaft is a Health Icon if you need it.

  Once inside you need to get to the research facility to gain access to the 
  Black Project. You are also prompted to disable the SAM's outside to make 
  it easier for you later. You will also need to deal with the soldiers 
  throughout the complex as you progress. The soldiers carry M4's so you can 
  get some ammo for yours when you kill them.

  When you reach the first room, turn right and up the stairs to enter a 
  small room with a Body Armor Icon and a MiniGun. Get rid of all of the 
  soldiers in this room and go down to the lower floor. Go south and you will 
  be on the upper level of a larger room. Kill everybody here before 
  proceeding. In the next room to the south there is a Body Armor Icon. Head 
  down to the lower level and head east along the grilled walkway. If you 
  look down you will see a Health Icon and a Body Armor Icon. There are two 
  ways to go down below the grilled walkway to retrieve them if you need 
  them.

  Go up the stairs and you will enter another area with crisscrossing 
  hallways. There are several soldiers here and you should deal with them 
  before proceeding. There is a corridor that angles up and into the next 
  large room that has a Body Armor Icon and a scientist with a Pass Card. Get 
  the Pass Card and go to the red circle to open the door to gain acccess to 
  the Black Project.

  The next area leads down to the Black Project and has a long set of stairs 
  winding down to it. It also has lots of soldiers you need to get rid of and 
  this is when you really need to use the M4. Go down the stairs and stop 
  every so often to kill any soldiers you can target. When you finally clear 
  the area of soldiers and get downstairs, you will finally find the Black 
  Project - a Jetpack!

  Get the Jetpack and go straight up to get out. You will be provided with a 
  Micro SMG to kill any soldier while trying to get up and out of the complex 
  regardless of whatever SubMachine Gun you had previously. Then head over to 
  Arco Del Oeste to drop off the Jetpack to The Truth. As you fly there, the 
  game will instruct you on how to use the Jetpack. You can only use the 
  Pistol and Micro SMG when shooting from above while using the Jetpack (and 
  yes, even dual wielded).

  When you reach the blip, and The Truth, the mission will be completed.

Reward
0====0
  Nothing. But you are provided with a Sanchez so you can get off the 
  mountain. Also, you can now buy Desert Eagles at all Ammu-Nations.

  In addition, the Thermal Goggles will now spawn in the following 
  locations:

  >>In Madd Dogg's Crib (Los Santos) inside the barroom on first floor by the 
    large TV after completion of "A Home In The Hills" (The Four Dragons 
    Casino).
  >>Inside of Zero RC [southeast corner] (San Fierro).
  >>Underneath the north part of the huge dish (by the Sandking) at The Big 
    Ear (Bone County).
  >>In the short control tower at the south part of Area 69 in Restricted 
    Area (Bone County).

  Regardless of whatever SubMachine Gun you had you will be provided with a 
  Micro SMG for this mission. You also can't take off the Jetpack so you 
  can't use any other weapons.

  Fly up and head east toward the north part of Las Venturas. Land on the top 
  part of the north building for Yellow Bell Station. The train will be 
  heading west and you can stand here and pick off most of the soldiers on 
  the train as it passes by.

  Once you kill most of the soldiers, fly off and to the train to pick off 
  the rest of the soldiers. There are also three crates that need to be 
  destroyed to find the Green Goo. Regardless of what order you get them, the 
  Green Goo will always be in the last crate you destroy.

  Once you get the Green Goo, fly off to the airfield and land in the red 
  circle to complete the mission.

Reward
0====0
  $20,000. In addition, you will complete the Asset Missions for Verdant 
  Meadows Aircraft Graveyard. You will gain a Money Icon that maxes out at 
  $10,000.

  Also, the Jetpack will spawn near the entrance for you to use.

The Plan
0======0
  The would-be-sabateur has been tied to the windshield of your car. You need 
  to do some crazy things in your driving to scare him into talking. There is 
  a Scare-O-Meter to help you in finding out how much you are scaring him. 
  You can't really go onto the main highways (because of potential police 
  attention) and getting into a bad wreck (especially head-on) will kill him.

  The best thing to do is head for the Las Venturas Airport runway where you 
  can do whatever you want without risking any collisions. Simply go from one 
  end of the runway to the other really fast since high speeds is one thing 
  that scares your victim. When the Scare-O-Meter maxes out he will talk. He 
  will tell you that the Sindacco Family is behind the sabotage.

  After that, take him back to the casino. When you reach the casino, the 
  mission will be completed.

Notes

  Got some new information courtesy of Glen Winstein.

The Plan
0======0
  Head out toward Hunter Quarry which is indicated by the blip. When you get 
  there you will see a cutscene showing some workers setting up explosives. 
  You have two and a half minutes to get the four explosives before the 
  workers detonate them and you fail the mission. You also need to get a 
  heavy piece of machinery to destroy the crates so you can get the 
  explosives.

  Although you can easily get the explosives within the time limit Glen 
  Winstein gave me a piece of info that is really useful here. If you find 
  the guy with the Dynamite Plunger (near the center of the Quarry) and kill 
  him, the timer will disappear and you can take as much time as you need to 
  complete this stage of the mission.

  Just fly off the ledges to quickly get to the bottom of the quarry. Get in 
  the Dumper and run over a crate. Then get out and get the explosive. Three 
  explosives are on the ground and one is on a Forklift. Once you get the 
  four explosives, the next phase of the mission begins.

  The quarry security has sealed off the entrance so you need to find another 
  way out. You need to get on the nearby Sanchez and follow the checkpoints, 
  which also involve climbing over the quarry equipment, to get out of the 
  area. Kill any security person that gets in your way.

  Once you get out of the quarry, go over to the drop point, not far from the 
  quarry, to complete the mission.

Reward

  $7,000 plus Respect Gained.

Once you have completed "Explosive Situation" (The Four Dragons Casino), you
open up the Hunter Quarry Asset Missions. There are seven missions that you
need to do to complete the asset. All of these missions have a time limit and
a reward for completing them. You pick up these missions near the front
entrance of Hunter Quarry.

Mission 1
*********
  Time: 3:30.
  Reward: $500.
  Notes: You need to use the Dozer to push the boulders into the markers 
         before time expires. There are seven of them and are fairly spread 
         out. Go down level by level. There is one on the south side that 
         needs to be taken care of before you get the others which are mostly 
         on the north side. This mission is not too hard otherwise.

Mission 2
*********
  Time: 1:30 (at start).
  Reward: $1,000.
  Notes: Bombs have been planted by a rival organization and you need to use 
         the Dozer to push each bomb safely away into markers. You gain 
         another minute and a half of time when you succeed in pushing a bomb 
         away. The bombs are located behind the site office, crane, grinder, 
         and crushers. After moving the last bomb from the crushers you need 
         to get beyond the blast radius. Once that is done the mission is 
         complete. If you had no problems with the last mission then this one 
         should pose no problems either.

Mission 3
*********
  Time: 8:00.
  Reward: $2,000.
  Notes: Now you have to chase the bombers in a Dumper before they can reach 
         safety. Believe it or not, despite it's huge size, the Dumper is 
         quite vunerable to SubMachine Gun fire. So, catch up to them, get 
         beside them, and drive-by them to quickly destroy their vehicle and 
         complete the mission. Pretty easy if you can deal with the traffic.

Mission 4
*********
  Time: 4:00.
  Reward: $3,000.
  Notes: The bombers have been caught and killed. Now you have to get the 
         bodies, which are at the other entrance, and dump them before the 
         cops come looking. Take the Sanchez and drive along the outside of 
         the north part of the quarry and stay as close to the fence as 
         possible. You should get to the other entrance in about thirty 
         seconds. Get the Dumper, with the bodies, and drive back to the main 
         entrance. You have to be careful here. If any of the bodies fall out 
         you will fail the mission. When you get to the main entrance you 
         need to get down to the lower level and dump the bodies in the fire. 
         Take it slow going down to the fire. When at the fire, back up the 
         Dumper and use the Right Analog Stick to dump the bodies in the fire 
         and complete the mission.

Mission 5
*********
  Time: 3:00.
  Reward: $5,000.
  Notes: Take the Dumper, which has explosives in it, and drive it up to the 
         Verdant Meadows Aircraft Graveyard. You need to be careful because 
         the fragile cargo. Even so, this mission is pretty easy. Drive up 
         there and dodge whatever traffic comes your way. Once you get to the 
         Graveyard, go to the west end of the runway and dump the explosives 
         to complete the mission.

Mission 6
*********
  Time: 3:00.
  Reward: $7,500.
  Notes: A Dumper has spilled a load of explosives on a nearby train track 
         and you need to clear them off before the next train comes along. 
         The hardest part of the mission is getting there because of the slow 
         speed of the Dozer. Once you get to the spill site, just push off 
         the barrels to either side of the tracks. Once you get the last 
         barrel, the train will pass by and the mission will be completed.

Mission 7
*********
  Time: 8:00.
  Reward: $10,000.
  Notes: A cop has been killed and you need to get rid of the body before the 
         cops come looking. Get down to the bottom, use the Sanchez and fly 
         off the edges to get down quickly, and get into the Dozer. You need 
         to push the body and the cop bike into the red circle. You can't 
         ride the cop bike into the red circle - the game won't let you. Once 
         you get both objects into the red circle, get out of the Dumper and 
         back onto the Sanchez to quickly get up to the crane. This part is 
         tricky because of how this particular crane handles. Once you get 
         both objects into the Dumper, get out of the crane and into the 
         Dumper. Now you need to get up to the main entrance. You need to be 
         careful because if any of the objects fall out the mission will be 
         failed. Once you get up to the maine entrance, you need to dump the 
         objects into the water nearby. This is probably the trickiest part 
         of the mission because, other than trying the cross the highway with 
         the cars smacking into you, is that you need to back up and get real 
         close to the edge then dump the objects. Once that is done, the 
         mission is successfully completed and you will also complete the 
         Hunter Quarry Asset Missions.

For completing all seven quarry missions you gain a Money Icon near the front
entrance that maxes out at $2,000 plus use of a Dozer and Dumper within the
quarry. You can also redo the missions and improve upon your best times.

The Plan

  Go over to the factory unit in Whitewood Estates. When you get there you 
  will be notified that the factory is guarded and you should try to sneak 
  in.

  Park just outside of the gate. Get out and go around the south side of the 
  gate. Stay along the wall and go between the wall and the crates. Then head 
  south around the crates. Next go up against the wall to the right of the 
  entrance. Now carefully go along the wall and sneak in on the right side of 
  the entrance. If you do this right, nothing will happen when you get 
  inside.

  At this point, the machines are indestructible but all of the guards are 
  just standing around. They won't activate until you trigger a cutscene of 
  you entering the place so you can get rid of them now without any problem. 
  I prefer to use the Silenced Pistol for this part. There are two guys on 
  the top level and four on the bottom level. There is also a guy in a 
  Forklift near the entrance BUT leave him alone for now.

  After killing all of the guards here, head near the bottom of the stairs 
  and look out toward the car in front of the entrance. Fire one time at the 
  car. You will trigger a cutscene of the guys leaving the car and going 
  inside. Now they will take up position on the shelving not far from the 
  entrance. Like the other guards, they will just stand around. But the 
  machines are still indestructible. Kill both of the guards. NOW kill the 
  guy in the Forklift. When you do that, you will trigger another cutscene. 
  Notice that there is no one in the cutscene other than Carl (you killed the 
  guards that would show up in the cutscene).

  You will be placed just inside the front entrance. Two more guards will 
  appear on the top level and you can kill them with ease. If you triggered 
  the cutscenes without killing any guards you would have to face all of 
  these guards at once. By doing it this way you have made your task easier.

  At this point you can go ahead and destroy the machines. There are nine 
  machines and you can destroy them with one shot of the Combat Shotgun.

  After destroying all of the machines, more guards will show up at the 
  entrance (including a vehicle). You can either use the M4 (because of it's 
  range) or the Rocket Launcher (hit the car and kill most of them at once). 
  Be careful, there is a guard sitting on top of the crates (and carrying a 
  Combat Shotgun) just outside of the entrance.

  Once you have dealt with all of the guards, take the Admiral parked outside 
  and drive back to the casino to complete the mission.

  $10,000 plus Respect Gained.

The Plan

  You need to go up to Arco del Oeste to get Paul and Maccer. You will need 
  to find a car with four doors for this mission. There is usually a car with 
  four doors along the street in front of the casino.

  When you get to Arco del Oeste, you will get a cutscene showing Carl with 
  Paul and Maccer. Paul informs Carl about Rosie who has a casino gig in 
  Venturas. Go back to your car and get Paul and Maccer.

  Now you need to go to the snake farm to try to find the rest of the band. 
  For some chuckles, don't stop the car when Paul wants you to and wait until 
  the talking is over before going into the red circle at the snake farm.

  When you get there, you will confront the owner of the snake farm and his 
  kids. They are not too pleased about what happened the night before and 
  will attack you. Go and kill them all. If you don't, one of the will enter 
  a truck and will chase you back to Las Venturas.

  Get back in the car and drive back to Caligula's Palace. Once you get there 
  you will meet up with Ken Rosenberg, yes THAT Ken Rosenberg, the same one 
  from Vice City.

  Near the end of the cutscene Carl will call Woozie and tell him about being 
  able to scope Caligula's Palace without suspicion.

  After the cutscene the mission will be completed.

Reward

  Also, you will get a call from Paul and this will open up a dice icon at

  First off you will need a Camera. You will have to go to Pirates In Men's 
  Pants to find the group of tourists where you can get a Camera. When you 
  get to the tourists, find the one with the Camera and kill him then pick up 
  the Camera.

  Next, head over to the planning department building. Security is strict so 
  you have to play it cool. Switch to your Camera. When you get inside, talk 
  to the receptionist. Give a positive then a negative then a positive 
  answer. She will then open the door leading into the stairwell.

  When you get up to the blip, you will be notified that you need to distract 
  the nearby guard. Now you need to go down to the Document Depository to 
  cause a distraction. When you get there you will be told to destroy the Air 
  Con Units. Destroy them with the Silenced Pistol.

  Now you will create a fire that will get the people out of the building. 
  Now go back upstairs and take a picture of the plans.

  After that you will need to get out but there will be cops crawling all 
  around the stairwell. Kill the cops as you get to them. WHen you get 
  outside, you will be hit with a 4-Star Wanted Rating. Get into the car 
  parked in front of you and drive straight to the Four Dragons Casino to 
  complete the mission.

  Head on over to Caligula's Palace. When you get to the red circle you will 
  see the Croupier, who has a card and the code, leave. You need to follow 
  her but not too close. You will also get a Spook-O-Meter to alert you when 
  you get too close to your target.

  After some driving around, she will stop at the Sex Shop. Go inside and to 
  the red circle. You will see that the girl is planning a little get 
  together with someone named Benny. Afterwards she will leave.

  Now go and get the Gimp Suit. After that, leave the store. You have to 
  follow the Croupier again. This time she will lead you to her house in 
  Prickle Pine. Park in the red circle across the street from her house.

  Now you have to kill her gimp before he reaches the house. He won't appear 
  on the radar but he is still easy to find. Go west along the street and you 
  will find a bare chested redneck carrying a purple dildo. This is Benny and 
  you have to kill him.

  After killing Benny, go over to the Croupier's house and you will start a 
  lengthy cutscene. Afterwards you will complete the mission.

Reward
0====0
  Respect Gained. And you will get to keep the Gimp Suit for your wardrobe.

  Near the end of the mission, the game tells you that you need to wine and 
  dine the Croupier, Millie, in order to get the keycard. But that takes 
  time.

  A faster, and nastier, method is to take her out into the desert and 
  kill her when you pick her up (I perfer to use the M4 when "dumping" her). 

  After killing her, you will get a phone call from Woozie asking you where 
  the keycard is at. After informing him that Millie's dead, he suggests that 
  you go to her home and break in to get her keycard. Drive back to her house 
  and go inside to get the keycard.

  After getting the keycard, you will get another call from Woozie 
  congratulating you on your success. You can now proceed with the heist.

  Go over to the airport and get in the plane, a Nevada, and fly to the drop 
  off point. It is best to go south and over Red County to help get altitude 
  to get to the corona. When you finally get enough altitude and reach the 
  corona, press Triangle to jump.

  Glide on over to the red circle at the end of the Dam Quay. Use the rock 
  wall to the left of the red circle to help you get to the quay.

  Now you need to sneak into the dam itself. All of your weapons have been 
  taken from you so you need to go and get the Knife nearby. After disposing 
  of the two nearby guards, enter the dam.

  Now you have to rig all five generators with explosives. You have to sneak 
  around otherwise you will alert the premises. Worse, one of the gurads has 
  a gun and all you have is just a Knife. He is one of two guards on the 
  lower level so sneak around and kill him so he won't do you any harm.

  Once you have rigged all five generaotrs, head for the exit. CJ is now 
  trapped on the top of the dam and he must jump down into the water to 
  escape. After the cutscene, the mission is successfully completed.

Reward
0====0
  Respect Gained. In addition, you get all of your weapons back.

  You have to get four motorcycles in 12:00 and put them onto a Packer 
  travelling clockwise on the Julius Thruway. One motorcycle is at the Las 
  Venturas Hospital, one at the Las Venturas Police Station, one at the VROCK 
  Hotel, and one near Linden Station.

  I usually start with the one at the Hospital then the Police Station then 
  the Hotel and finally at Linden Station.

  When you get to a bike, there is usually a cop nearby. Take him out then 
  get the bike. When you take a bike you will be hit aith a 2-Star Wanted 
  Rating. It takes too much time to get rid of it plus you will get it every 
  time you take a bike so you will have to play through it.

  When you get to the Packer, you have to go slowly up the ramp so they can 
  lock it into place. When you lock down a cycle, get off and get another 
  bike. However, you are on the freeway so you need to get another car so you 
  can get another bike. Usually you can take a cop car when they stop to try 
  to bust you.

  When you finally get all four bikes, you will be dropped off in Whitewood 
  Estates and the mission will be successfully completed.

  You should complete the Verdant Meadows Aircraft Graveyard Asset Missions 
  so you can get a Jetpack (optional). Get a Patriot and save it at your

The Plan
0======0
  In order to get an armored car you need to get a Sky Crane which is a 
  special helicopter with a magnet on board. It is located at K.A.C.C. 
  Military Fuels in northeast Las Venturas. However, you need a military 
  vehicle to enter the place.

  There are three ways about this.

  The first way involves the use of a Patriot. You need to get a Patriot, 
  best if you can import one from the Import / Export Ship in San Fierro, and 
  save it at your Rockshore West Safehouse prior to doing this mission.

  Go over to your Safehouse to get the Patriot and drive over to K.A.C.C. 
  Military Fuels. Once you get past the gates, run over the soldier to the 
  left (standing by the guard shack) then turn left and run over the other 
  soldier. Head for the gap between the large building and the crates. You 
  will hear shooting coming from inside the large building. There are a lot 
  of soldiers within the large building but I am going to take a shortcut 
  around them.

  There is a gap between the building and the fence. Go east until you reach 
  the crates. Your Patriot cannot fit between the crates and the fence so 
  exit the Patriot and continue east on foot. When you reach the east fence 
  turn south. You will see two large groups of container crates. Go to the 
  southmost one and climb onto the yellow crate. Then climb onto the red 
  crate to your right. Next, stand on the yellow crate. Switch to your Sniper 
  Rifle and look west.

  Zoom in all the way and angle right until you see a set of stairs. You can 
  see two soldiers, one halfway up the stairs and another kneeling on the 
  ground. Snipe them both. You may also see three additional soldiers running 
  around down there. If you can snipe them, good. But if you can't, you can 
  get them later.

  Next, angle slightly upward and go left until you see a set of stairs 
  leading up to a higher level of the roof. There is another soldier standing 
  next to the stairs. Snipe him.

  Next, angle upward and to the left until you see the helicopter. You can 
  see one soldier standing to the right of the helicopter and you can barely 
  see another soldier at the top of the stairs. Snipe them both.

  Get back down to ground level and head southeast toward the inner fence. 
  When you get to the fence, go south along the fence and around the corner. 
  Go west and you will see container crates. Climb the blue crate then the 
  yellow crate. Now you can jump inside the inner fence. Once inside, switch 
  to your M4 and go east and around the corner.

  You will encounter the three roaming soldiers I referred to earlier. But 
  for some reason they are not very aggressive so they are easy pickings with 
  your M4. Kill those three soldiers then proceed upward on the stairs until 
  you are prompted that you have to deal with two Gunships.

  The next way is using a Packer. There is one that always spawns in the 
  industrial area just west of K.A.C.C. Military Fuels. Once you get a 
  Packer, head to the northeast corner of K.A.C.C. Military Fuels. Get the 
  Packer as close to the fence as you can then get out. Push the Packer up 
  against the fence then walk up the ramp. What you need to do is jump on top 
  of one of the weird looking fenceposts. If you manage to get on top of a 
  fencepost, jump again to grab the top of the fence then get over.

  In order to get the helicopter, and get rid of the nearby soldiers, you 
  need to turn the yellow blip, where the helicopter is, to blue. To do 
  that, go right up the the inner fence to the west. When you get to the 
  fence the blip will turn blue and you can now proceed. Go back east to 
  climb the container crates and do the sniping as done above. One other 
  difference is that when you jump into the inner fence you will encounter 
  several soldiers on the ground but they are not hard to deal with the M4.

  The last way is by using the Jetpack. Go to Verdant Meadows Aircraft 
  Graveyard and pick up a Jetpack. Head east toward K.A.C.C. Military Fuels. 
  When you get there, land on the first large round fuel tank at the south 
  edge of the facility. Disengage from the Jetpack, switch to your Sniper 
  Rifle, and look north.

  On the roof near the tops of the trees is a soldier standing near a 
  MiniGun. Snipe him and look toward the helicopter. There is a soldier 
  standing to the left. Snipe him then get your Jetpack.

  Fly over to the third large round fuel tank and take off your Jetpack. Look 
  toward the helicopter. To the right is another soldier. Snipe him then look 
  down and toward the right. You will see a set of stairs leading down to 
  another level of the roof. You will see a soldier standing there. Snipe him 
  then get back on your Jetpack. Fly down toward the roof and you will see a 
  message saying that you have to deal with Gunships.

  Disengage your Jetpack and go over to the MiniGun (if you used the Patriot 
  or Parachute method you will have to kill the soldier there first). Press 
  Enter Vehicle to use. Just hold down the Attack button and aim at the 
  Gunships. These guys are very easy to shoot down. Once you have destroyed 
  both Gunships, disengage and go up to the helicopter.

  Enter the helicopter and go get the Bank Van parked at Rockshore East. You 
  have to carefully hover over the Bank Van so you can grab it with the 
  magnet. Once you have gotten the Bank Van, fly over to Verdant Meadows 
  Aircraft Graveyard. You have to be careful while flying. The van keeps you 
  from flying too high so you need to go around the high buildings.

  When you get there, carefully place the Bank Van in the red circle then 
  disengage the magnet. Then land in the designated area to successfully 
  complete the mission.

Reward
0====0
  Respect Gained. There is one more mission left for The Heist but you can't 
  do that until later. For now I will move on to.....

Caligula's Palace is the mob controlled casino on The Strip. It is currently
being "managed" by Ken Rosenberg. This ex-lawyer from Vice City has been
"appointed" to run the casino on behalf of the Liberty City Mafia. He is even
more whiny and paranoid than he was back when he was working with Tommy
Vercetti.

One of his only friends right now is Kent Paul (also from Vice City). He is
currently the manager of a band known as The Gurning Chimps. He has to
constantly keep his eye on Maccer, the lead singer for The Gurning Chimps,
who has a problem about "touching himself" constantly and an obsession for
big breasts.

The Plan
0======0
  Get a car and head over to the hospital. When you get there, you will see a 
  Patriot in the parking lot. If you still haven't got a Patriot for the 
  Import / Export List for San Fierro or you wanted to do this mission first 
  before doing "Up, Up, And Away", go ahead and store the Patriot in a nearby 
  garage (the game designers wanted you to use the Patriot for this mission).

  If you do not wish to use the Patriot and want to store it, you should try 
  to find a large truck or semi. Regardless of vehicle, park in the red 
  circle. It turns out that Johnny was picked up already. Turns out that the 
  Forellis beat you to him and you need to find Johnny.

  There are three Ambulances roaming around the city. You have to ram an 
  Ambulance to see if that is the one with Johnny. If the first Ambulance 
  does not contain Johnny, a distress call will come from the Ambulance you 
  just hit and will warn the Mafia.

  When you finally find the right Ambulance, you will need to chase and 
  damage the Ambulance a bit to get them to bail and face you. When they exit 
  the Ambulance, kill both gunmen and then take the Ambulance.

  You are now prompted to take Johnny to the Meat Factory in Whitewood 
  Estates. You may also need to deal with Forelli backup but they are not 
  hard to deal with. Just keep driving until you reach your destination. Park 
  in the red circle to successfully complete the mission.

Reward

  $5,000 plus Respect Gained. You will also see a C.R.A.S.H. icon in north 
  Las Venturas but I will save them for later.

The Plan

  Get a car and head over to the Abattior. When CJ comes in, Ken begs him to 
  come with him to Johnny (CJ is reluctant because of earlier events). But 
  when Johnny sees CJ, he drops dead of a heart attack and all hell breaks 
  loose. Now both CJ and Ken need to fight their way out. You also need to 
  keep Ken alive.

  Use the M4 and kill the approaching gunmen. Ken will then grab a Fire 
  Extinguisher to put out the flames out ahead of you. If you go into the 
  room where Ken got the extinguisher you will find a Health Icon and a Fire 
  Extinguisher.

  Go up to where the flames are and shoot any gunmen you see across from you. 
  When the fire is out, proceeed forward. When you enter into the next room 
  you will find a freezer to your right (which also contains a Body Armor 
  Icon). Ken will hide in the freezer and you can shut the door on him but 
  his health will diminish while in the freezer.

  Using the M4 will make it easy for you to quickly clear a path through both 
  main rooms and the maze that leads outside. Once outside, drive Ken back to 
  Caligula's Palace to complete the mission.

Reward

The Plan

  Go on over to the airport and grab the plane, a Dodo, from the hangar. 
  Next, you have to fly the plane north and intercept the assassins. When you 
  get to the other plane, turn around and fly into the corona behind it. This 
  will trigger a cutscene of Carl jumping from his plane to the other plane.

  Once inside, you are given a plain Pistol and you have to kill all four 
  assassins. This part is pretty easy. They will pop up from behind their 
  seats and you can kill them quickly when they try to attack you.

  After that, you will need to deal with the pilot. Kill him and take control 
  of the plane.

  Fly the plane and land it at the airport to successfully complete the 
  mission.

Reward

  $15,000 plus Respect Gained. You will also end up with a regular Pistol 
  regardless of what handgun you had before. There are also no Caligula's

  You need to grab a Pickup Truck and quickly drive to the red circle.

  Once there, you need to go forward and reverse to line up the back end of 
  the truck with Madd Dogg as he staggers around the edge. After awhile he 
  will jump off. If you lined yourself up correctly, he will fall in the back 
  of the truck and live. If not, he will die and you will fail the mission.

  Once he is in the truck, carefully drive Madd Dogg over to Ivory Towers 
  Drive-Thru Mental Clinic to successfully complete the mission.

  After meeting up with Tenpenny, CJ is ordered to take out some DEA and FBI 
  agents and get a dossier.....

Weapons
0=====0
  SMG (optional), Micro SMG (optional).

Prep Work
0=======0
  Get all Golds at the Flight School to get a Hunter (optional). Complete 
  "Green Goo" (Verdant Meadows Aircraft Graveyard Asset) to get the Jetpack 
  (optional).

Notes
0===0
  None.

The Plan
0======0
  Your target is at Aldea Malvada. If you are spotted, the target will enter 
  a nearby helicopter and fly off. If you kill the target, he will drop the 
  dossier. But if you don't pick it up, one of the nearby FBI agents will get 
  it and will try to enter the helicopter and fly off. You would need to use 
  the other helicpoter nearby to chase him.

  However, there are four different ways to approach this mission to get the 
  dossier and prevent the helicopter chase:

  Approach 1
  **********
  When on the ground, drive over to Aldea Malvada. Go partway up the dirt 
  road then stop and get out. Go up the hillside and head north along the 
  edge so you aren't seen. When you see the target charge him, target him 
  with your SMG, and kill him. Then get the dossier to complete the mission 
  (and run away from the nearby FBI agents to keep from getting shot up).

  Approach 2
  **********
  If you have access to a Jetpack, get some Micro SMG ammo. Fly over to Aldea 
  Malvada and approach from the north. Lock onto your target and kill him 
  then target the other FBI agents and kill them before any of them can get 
  the dossier. Then land, disengage the Jetpack, and grab the dossier to 
  complete the mission.

  Approach 3
  **********
  Go get the Sea Sparrow that is north of the Verdant Meadows Aircraft 
  Graveyard. Fly to Aldea Malvada and approach from the north. When close to 
  the target fire the Machine Gun using the L1 button and hold your position 
  so you can get any agents that try to get the dossier. When all is clear, 
  land the SeaSparrow, and get out to get the dossier to complete the 
  mission.

  Approach 4
  **********
  This one is similar to Approach 3 except you use the Hunter. Fly over to 
  Aldea Malvada and approach from the north. Use the rockets to quickly clear 
  the area and land to get the dossier to complete the mission.

Reward
0====0
  Nothing. But you will get another phone call from Tenpenny which leads

Overview

  After meeting up with Tenpenny in Las Brujas, CJ gives the dossier to 
  Tenpenny. Then Tenpenny ambushes Officer Hernandez with a Shovel. Turns out 
  that Hernandez was snitching on Tenpenny. Tenpenny then departs leaving 
  Pulaski to force CJ to dig a grave big enough for two. But after digging 
  the grave, Officer Hernandez gets up and tries to attack Pulaski. The 
  attack results in Hernandez's death but forces Pulaski to run and now CJ 
  has to chase him.....

Weapons
0=====0
  SMG (optional), M4 (optional), Sniper Rifle (optional).

Prep Work
0=======0
  Get all Golds at the Flight School to get a Hunter (optional).

Notes
0===0
  Found another method to completing this mission from the GameFAQs Message 
  Boards.

The Plan
0======0
  When you start, Pulaski will get into a white Buffalo and you are given the 
  use of a Bandito. Pulaski's car is very tough so it is difficult to 
  destroy. Use P.I.T. Maneuvers to spin him out and drive-by him to damage 
  his car while he is trying to straighten out. You will have to do this a 
  few times before you can destroy his car.

  When you get his car to flame, Pulaski will exit and you now have to kill 
  him on foot. Be careful, he is armed with a Desert Eagle and he is pretty 
  good with it. However, if you are far enough away from him, you can either 
  use the Sniper Rifle or M4 to nail him before he can do any damage.

  But, if you've earned the Hunter, this mission becomes much easier. Take a 
  Hunter and fly to where you pick up the mission. Park it between the 
  windmill and the town. If you try to park it near the town's graveyard, the 
  Hunter will disappear.

  When you start the mission, get in the Bandito, and zip on over to the 
  parked Hunter to switch vehicles. You can use both the Machine Gun and 
  Rockets to quickly take out Pulaski's car and Pulaski himself when he exits 
  it.

  Another method, as posted by powerslaves on the GameFAQs Message Boards, is 
  to run to Pulaski's car and jump on top of it. Then crouch down and make 
  adjustments as he drives off with you on top. He will smack into the road 
  sign as you get up onto the road. When he does so, you can jack him and 
  take his car.

  However, the best way to do this is to fall off of the car just as you get 
  onto the road and run to the road sign just as he hits it. This way you can 
  get to his car before he can back away and drive forward again. Then you 
  can either get far enough away from him, exit, and use your Sniper Rifle. 
  Or, better yet, just run his sorry ass over with his own car.

  Regardless of method, when you finally nail Pulaski, you will start a 
  cutscene on the ground with CJ and Pulaski where CJ finally kills off 
  Pulaski to complete the mission.

Reward
0====0
  Nothing. In addition, strangely enough, you will also gain the use of 
  Pulaski's vehicle even if you destroyed it in a chase. This ends all of the 
  missions for C.R.A.S.H.

  You will also get a phone call from Ken which reopens Caligula's Palace so 
  you can do.....

  Salvatore Leone wants CJ to do a hit in Liberty City. CJ needs some backup 
  and recruits Ken, Paul, and Maccer. But when they get outside CJ gets them 
  to quickly leave Las Venturas to get them away from Salvatore and now CJ 
  goes on alone.....

The Plan
0======0
  Go on over to the airport, get into the Shamal, and fly to the blip in the 
  northeast corner of San Andreas to get over to Liberty City. When you get 
  to Liberty City, you will be placed inside St. Mark's Bistro where you 
  begin the second part of this mission.

  Now you have to kill everybody within the Bistro. I found that the M4 is a 
  very effective weapon for this mission even though you are given a Pistol 
  for this mission (which replaces whatever other gun you had).

  Clear out the group in front of you and those that come up the stairs. WHen 
  you get to the top of the stairs, nail those you can see below you. Be 
  careful when you get to the bottom of the stairs. One of the goons behind 
  the bar has a Shotgun and can quickly deplete your armor.

  When you get rid of the goons behind the bar, proceed through the kitchen, 
  killing anybody that gets in your way, and go outside. Kill everybody 
  outside and you will have completed your task.

  From here you will be flying back to Las Venturas. Gently land the plane at 
  the airport to complete the mission.

Reward
0====0
  $20,000 plus Respect Gained. This will end the missions for Caligula's 
  Palace. In addition, Didier Sachs, in Los Santos, will finally open up so 
  you can now get the best in clothing and accessories for CJ.

  You will also get three phone calls.

  The first call is from Sweet who is in despair sitting in prison. He has 
  pretty much given up on getting out regardless of what CJ says about the 
  situation.

  The second call is from Salvatore Leone. He is happy about your work at 
  Liberty City and wants to keep a distance for awhile so things can cool 
  down.

  The last call is from Woozie who wants to know if they are still going to 
  do the heist on Caligula's Palace. CJ informs him that Ken and his friends 
  are gone and that he is cool with Salvatore so thay can go and do the job. 
  This, of course, leads me to.....

The Plan
0======0
  When you start, you will notice you have Tear Gas Grenades. Get a nearby 
  car and go over to Caligula's Palace. Walk in but do not cause trouble or 
  you will blow your cover.

  Once inside, you have four minutes to get the team inside. Go over to the 
  Swipecard Door. Once you get through the door, go downstairs and to the 
  Backup Generator room. When you get to the Backup Generator room, toss one 
  of the Tear Gas Grenades into the air duct. This will knock out the guards 
  below.

  Now go to the second Swipecard Door and use Millie's card to go through it. 
  As you get to the door Zero will cut off the power to the city of Las 
  Venturas. Now everything is dark but you have the Night Vision Goggles. 
  Activate them and proceed through the Swipecard Door.

  Go over to the Service Bay and hang a right so you can get the Forklift. 
  Drive the Forklift over to the now unlocked bay door so you can raise it. 
  Carefully drive the Forklift so the lift goes under the door then push up 
  on the Right Analog Stick to raise the door.

  Once the team is in you have seven minutes to get the money and get out. 
  However, there are security present and you have to clear a path to the 
  Safe. The M4 allows you to deal with these guys quickly. After getting rid 
  of security, lead the crew to the Safe. Once at the Safe, CJ is notified 
  that someone is trying to hack into the backup generators. CJ now needs to 
  destroy the backup generators before they are activated.

  Pick up the Remote Explosives and head up to the Backup Generator room. 
  There will be a couple of security guys waiting so you need to deal with 
  them before proceeding. Once inside, place the charge, exit the room, and 
  detonate them to destroy the generators. Now head back down to the team.

  When the Safe is opened, enter it. You will then be warned about some Mafia 
  goons coming down to the Safe. Step outside the Safe and kill all of the 
  Mafia goons. Next, lead the team back to the Service Bay killing all of the 
  security you come across.

  After safely leading the team back to the Armored Van, you need to go and 
  use the Service Elevator. After all, you are the decoy for this mission.

  As you start to the elevator, the lights will come back on. Go to the 
  elevator and kill all of the Mafia goons you come across. Once you get off 
  the elevator, head to the roof and kill the two gunmen along the way.

  When you get to the roof, you need to go across and get the Parachute. When 
  you get to the Parachute, you need to jump off and float to the helicopter 
  at The Clown's Pocket so you can escape. However, regardless of how good a 
  jumper you are, you can't get to the helicopter.

  No matter, just go down to street level, jack a car, and drive over to 
  Verdant Meadows Aircraft Graveyard to successfully complete the mission.

Reward
0====0
  $100,000 plus Respect Gained. This will end the missions for The Heist.

  You will also get a very nasty phone call from Salvatore Leone plus you get 
  the Croupier Outfit delivered to your wardrobe.

  In addition, the Night Vision Goggles will now spawn in the following 
  locations:

  >>In Madd Dogg's Crib first floor by the kitchen entrance after completion 
    of "A Home In The Hills" (The Four Dragons Casino).
  >>In the middle of the shopping complex in Foster Valley [ground level] 
    (San Fierro).
  >>At the top of the northwest guard tower of Restricted Area (Bone County).

  After hearing some rehearsals for the casino entertainment, a clean Madd 
  Dogg shows up. However, he reveals that he traded his mansion in Los 
  Santos, for some drugs, to a local drug lord. CJ decides to get rid of this 
  drug dealer and get Madd Dogg back into his own house again.....

The Plan

  When the mission starts, you are to jump out of the plane and start an 
  assault on Madd Dogg's Crib. Land on the mansion's helipad and switch to 
  your M4. You need to keep the roof clear of goons while the rest of the 
  Triad arrive. There is also a Body Armor Icon nearby if you need to use it. 
  When the rest of the Triad's arrive, head down and to the western entrance 
  of the mansion to enter it.

  Once inside, use the M4 to clear a path to the lower level and start the 
  chase with Big Poppa. As you chase Big Poppa, kill any gunman that gets in 
  your way. Eventually, he will get outside. Now the chase continues in cars.

  Grab the nearby Windsor and chase him. He is not being very aggressive in 
  running from you. Once on the main road just pull up alongside him, 
  drive-by him to get his car to flame, and stop. He will continue driving 
  along and when his car blows up, killing Big Poppa, the mission will end 
  successfully and you will have retaken Madd Dogg's Crib.

Reward
0====0
  Respect Gained. You will now have permanent access to Madd Dogg's Crib. You 
  can play arcade games and use the gym and basketball court there.

  In addition, you will also gain the following Icons:

  >>Thermal Goggles (inside the barroom on first floor by the large TV).
  >>Night Vision Goggles (first floor by the kitchen entrance after 
    completion of "Breaking The Bank At Caligula's" (The Heist). You can do 
    "A Home In The Hills" before doing "Breaking The Bank At Caligula's" if 
    you wanted to. But the goggles won't appear until after doing the last 
    Heist mission.).
  >>Body Armor (in one of the upper bedrooms).
  >>Health (in the kitchen on the lower level).

  This will end the missions for The Four Dragons Casino. You will also get a 
  phone call from Ken which opens up the next mission but first.....

When CJ was forced from Los Santos at the end of "The Green Sabre", he was
nothing but a gangbanger trying to put things back together. But now he
arrives back at Los Santos a businessman and property owner. He has aligned
himself with the Triads and pulled off a heist of a major mob casino.

He has changed a lot but the city of Los Santos remains the same. He also
still needs to get Sweet from jail and fix things up down here. There's still
a lot of work to do.....

The Plan
0======0
  When the mission starts, you are at The Panopticon and need to get into a 
  boat which has a Silenced Pistol and a Knife. You need to take the boat and 
  go over to the Aircraft Carrier at Easter Bay Naval Station. Your mission 
  requires that you steal a jet off the carrier and use it to destroy some 
  spy ships.

  When you get near the carrier, you need to jump out and swim through the 
  open door in the back. Once inside, you are prompted to disable the SAMs in 
  the Control Room to help you out. Switch to your Silenced Pistol. While on 
  the ramp, look at the two people talking ahead of you. When they break up, 
  kill the soldier. The mechanic will then try to get to the alarm. Run up 
  and nail him before he can use it. This will keep things quiet. If you go 
  behind the crates on the east end, you will find Tear Gas Grenades.

  If, at any time, you are detected and the alarm is sounded switch to your 
  M4 to take care of all of the soldiers.

  Go up to the next level and kill everybody before going into the Control 
  Room. Go into the Control Room to turn off the SAMs. Go up to the deck and 
  kill the last remaining soldier on the Carrier. Jump down to the jet you 
  need to take and enter it.

  Once you have the jet in the air, retract the landing gear and push up on 
  the Right Analog Stick to allow you to fly forward. But you will now be 
  chased by other fighter jets that you need to destroy. The best thing to do 
  is go in tight circles and hold down Target when you line up a jet. Going 
  in circles will help keep them from firing at you. When you finally target 
  a jet and the reticle turns from green to red, launch as many missiles as 
  you can. You should be able to fire enough missiles to destroy a jet. After 
  destroying all three jets, make your way to the spy ships.

  When you get there, lower your landing gear and pull back on the Right 
  Analog Stick to enter hover mode. This will allow you to control the Hydra 
  better. Slowly go along, target each ship as you come to it, and destroy it 
  with your Rockets. When you destroy all four ships, you need to take the 
  Hydra back to the airfield. Put your landing gear back up and reenter jet 
  mode.

  When you get to the airfield reenter hover mode and land in the red circle. 
  Then pilot the Hydra into the nearby hangar to complete the mission.

Reward

  $50,000. You will also now have use of the Hydra at your Verdant Meadows 
  Aircraft Graveyard Safehouse.

  In addition, the following Weapon Icons will spawn within Mike Toreno's

Overview

  Mike Toreno once again needs CJ to do one more little task for him before 
  he leaves his life forever. CJ is still rather upset over the last mission 
  and pulls a gun on Mike. But Mike is unfazed and tells CJ to pick up the 
  phone that he has just put down on the control deck. It's Sweet on the 
  other end. He has just been released from jail but doesn't know why. And 
  Mike's little task?

The Plan
0======0
  Get one of the nearby cars and drive over to the red circle across from the 
  Los Santos Police Department in Commerce.

  When you get there, a cutscene will start between CJ and Sweet. CJ is all 
  happy about the things he has done in San Fierro and Las Venturas. But 
  Sweet is not happy. For him it is all about the hood and is very upset that 
  CJ has not done anything about the hood while he sat in jail. He just wants 
  to go back to Grove Street. CJ counters by saying that there is nothing 
  back there now. But that means little to Sweet. He just wants to go home.

  Now drive Sweet back to Grove Street. When you get into the red circle you 
  will start another cutscene. A crack addict comes up to them trying to sell 
  them a blender. But Sweet chases him off and informs CJ that the blender 
  belonged to their mother. It's now time to clean Grove Street.

  The first thing you have to do is kill all of the Crack Dealers on the 
  street. There are six of them and they aren't hard to deal with. After 
  killing all of the Crack Dealers you now have to take back the hood.

  This part of the mission plays out similar to "Doberman". Find some Ballas 
  to shoot at and kill at least three of them to start a gang war. Then you 
  have to fight off three waves of Ballas to reclaim your neighborhood. Each 
  wave has more Ballas with better weapons. During the war Body Armor and 
  Health Icons will spawn randomly thoroughout the contested area.

  The differences between "Doberman" and this mission are that you have Sweet 
  by your side and you have the use of better weaponry such as the M4.

  When you start the gang war, go up near Sweet's house. This will insure 
  that the Ballas come in only one direction. You can't let Sweet die of 
  course but the M4 makes this mission easy because you can kill the Ballas 
  before they can get close enough to the both of you to do any damage.

  When you kill off all three waves, you will reclaim Grove Street and 
  complete the mission.

  to.....

After "Home Coming" you can now start taking over territory to increase the
presence of the Grove Street Families. In doing so you can also increase or
even max out your Respect. You will also gain a Money Icon in front of CJ's
house that increases with every territory you gain.

When you look at your in-game map you will see that some of Los Santos is
colored purple and yellow. The areas colored in yellow are Vago controlled
territories and the areas colored in purple are Ballas territories.

To take over a territory go into a territory you want to take over and find
some rival gangs to shoot at. Kill three rival gang members to start a gang
war. You will then deal with three waves of attackers just like in "Home
Coming". Body Armor and Health Icons will randomly appear in the contested
area if you need them. When you successfully wipe out all three waves, you
will gain the territory.

On occasion, there will be a car that will try to drive-by you but they are
not much of a problem.

The best weapon to use for territory acquisition is the M4. Although most of
the gang members will drop AK47s and you can get free ammo using the AK47
makes doing takeovers a little harder because when the gang members get
within range of your AK47 you will be in range of theirs and you can get shot
up a bit. The M4 has greater range and a larger magazine. You can cap an
entire wave without them even being able to shoot at you (if they all come at
you from one direction). When I started doing takeovers I went to the
Ammu-Nation and got 5,000 rounds for my M4 before starting.

One nice little trick I use is when I shoot at a wave I target the first
gangster and hold down the Attack button. When he dies, I quickly let go of
the Target button and quickly press it again. This time I target the guy
either next or behind my last victim. I killed him and repeated the process.
If you do this fast enough, you go through waves with ease.

Another tip is go one one side of the territory and get the gang members to
come at you from only one direction. This will allow you to to take out all
of the approaching gang members quickly, especially with the power and range
of the M4.

Most territories are easy to get but there are three very small areas that
are a bit harder to acquire and should be gotten before getting any others.

>>Jefferson Motel parking lot (Ballas). Find some rival gang members and lure 
  them to the parking lot to cap them so you can start the gang war there.

>>Road bridge at the north end of the flood control channel in south Los 
  Flores northeast of CJ's house (Vagos). You're not going to find a lot of 
  gang members roaming around here but you can cap gang members who are 
  driving in their Hermes. When one drives up, step in front of him (at the 
  stop light). Use your Silenced Pistol and shoot him while he is in the car. 
  Usually there are more Hermes vehicles backed up behind this one so you can 
  get enough gang members to shoot at to start the gang war here.

>>The sidewalk in front of the East Mulholland 24-7 (Ballas). Lure some of 
  the Ballas in the nearby territory onto the sidewalk so you can start the 
  gang war there.

After dealing with these three territories, the rest is easy.

When not on missions, you may get a warning that a rival gang is trying to 
take over your territory. This only occurs when your territory is bordering a
rival territory. You need to get over to the disputed territory and kill all
of the rival gang members to keep it yours.

If you don't get there in time, you will lose influence but not really lose
the territory.

A nifty little trick is that if you have a Taxi or any vehicle that you can 
do missions in, you can hit Activate Vehicle Mission to start the vehicle
mission and then hit Activate Vehicle Mission again to turn it off. When you
turn off the vehicle mission the takeover will end and the territory is still
yours.

If you get all 53 territories you won't be getting any more attacks from
rival gangs.

However, you will need to get at least 35% of gang territories before you are
allowed to do the last mission of the game, "End Of The Line". I recommend
that you wait until after "Grove 4 Life" and before "Riot" prior to doing any
takeovers. This will reduce the number of territories you need to take over
outside of missions and you won't have to retake certain territories during
them. Also it is easier to take over territories when you don't have to deal
with rioters.

The Plan

  Get inside the BF Injection and drive over to the video shoot which is in 
  Flint County just behind RS Haul. When you get there, you will start a 
  chase with OG Loc.

  He runs off in a Vortex, a hovercraft, and you need to chase him in one. 
  The craft is a little hard to control but not too bad. You can't catch up 
  to him to drive-by him but you are not supposed to, just chase him.

  When you get past the last bridge and come upon the group of boats, go to 
  the right of them. This will allow you to get a better angle for the ramp 
  you need to jump to continue the chase. But you can just go around the end 
  of the Lighthouse pier if you don't want to take the jump.

  The chase will continue under the Santa Maria Pier and then OG Loc will go 
  up on the beach and head for the Verona Beach Pier. However, you can just 
  stay on the water and go under the pier before going up on the beach and 
  onto the pier itself.

  Once you get to the end of the pier, OG Loc changes vehicles and now you 
  have to chase him in a Kart. Keep a little distance from him since he will 
  be taking some sharp corners to try to throw you off.

  The chase will lead you through the Santa Maria Pier, Rodeo, and ends at 
  Vinewood. Once you see OG Log dart into a building the mission will end 
  successfully and you can watch the cutscene of CJ and Madd Dogg confronting 
  OG Loc.

  it for the sake of this mission. Don't forget to protect Sweet. Again, 
  using the M4 makes fighting the gang war easier.

  When you get rid of all three waves, you can then attack B Dup's house.

  Go into Idlewood to reclaim some territories. If you already took over

  territores in Idlewood, you only need to take two for this mission.

  Best thing to do is to go into your garage and lure Sweet there. Then 
  quickly leave the garage and let the door close before Sweet can get out. 
  This will protect him. I've had mission failures here because he would get 
  his stupid ass run over by cars between acquisitions.

  Go into one territory and find some Ballas so you can start a gang war. Go 
  through all three waves to take a territory. After taking over the first 
  territory, go to another territory to start a another gang war. After 
  taking back the second territory, head back to Grove Street (and get Sweet 
  out of the garage) to complete the mission.

  However, if you want to do so, you can take all four territories before 
  heading back to Grove Street.

  First thing you need to do is recruit two homies to help you. Target one 
  and press up on the D-Pad to recruit. Once you have two homies, get into 
  the car you have saved in your garage (or Sweet's Greenwood if it is 
  available) and drive to Unity Station to meet up with some friends of 
  Cesar.

  If you drive through any Ballas territory (if you haven't gotten all 
  territories), one of your homies might jump out of the car and you will 
  have to go back to Grove Street and get another homie. You can't go to 
  Unity Station unless you have two homies in your car.

  Once you get to Unity Station you are now needed to remove the Vagos from 
  the nearby apartment complex. Use the M4 to quickly clear the area so you 
  can move onto the next area.

  The next area is in an alleyway not far from Cesar's house. Wipe out all of 
  the Vagos, including those coming in from behind, to move onto the final 
  area.

  The last group of Vagos are standing right in front of Cesar's house. The 
  guy on top has a Rocket Launcher and another one on ground level has a 
  Flamethrower.

  But you can still make quick work out of all of them with your M4 to 
  complete the mission. If you have a Rocket Launcher of your own you can use 
  it here to take out some of them, especially the one on the roof.

Reward

  At this point you get a call from Sweet telling CJ that they need to find 
  where Big Smoke is hiding. But as long as they don't rule the streets they 
  won't be able to find him. You need to take over territories to gain 
  influence.

  When you get at least 35% of all territories, and hopefully more prior to 
  doing "Riot", then you will get a call from Sweet telling CJ where Big 
  Smoke is hiding and thus unlocks the final mission of the game.....

  Because of the large size of this mission I will split this into two parts. 
  I should also note that if you fail during the second part of this mission,

  beginning of Part Two instead of redoing the whole mission from the 
  beginning.

  Drive the both of you over to Big Smoke's hideout in East Los Santos. When 
  you get there, CJ tells Sweet he wants to do this alone to make up for all 
  the times he was a buster and abandoned the family.

  When you exit the car, you need to find a way to break into the building. 
  The game suggests a nearby SWAT Tank that you can use. Run on over to get 
  it then drive through the door of the hideout. Run over all of the Ballas 
  before leaving the SWAT Tank and proceeding. It should be noted that you 
  cannot save the SWAT Tank in any garage (during the normal course of the 
  game). It will always disappear at the end of the mission regardless. Once 
  you get out of the SWAT Tank, go through the door to enter the next stage 
  of the mission.

  In order to reach Big Smoke you need to go through three floors of the 
  building starting with.....

  Floor 1: Security Area
  ***********************
  Switch to your M4 and proceed upwards. Carefully go through the hall and 
  take out all four gunmen you come across. Eventually you will come to some 
  Body Armor and a set of double doors.

  Beyond the doors is a large room with several pillars and plenty of 
  enemies. Poke through the left side and use the left door as a shield as 
  you take care of several enemies. Then head to the first pillar on the 
  right and kill the Balla that tries to get to it. While using that as 
  cover, kill more of the enemies including those in a room above at the east 
  end and a couple on the walkway above on the north. During this shootout, a 
  SWAT Tank will burst through. Kill the SWAT guys that come out.

  When you get to the other side of the room, another set of doors will open 
  and a Balla will come out. Kill him then go through the door. As you turn 
  left, you will be ambushed by three enemies using crates as cover. Get rid 
  of them then proceed through the room and to the next set of stairs. At the 
  top is another Balla waiting for you. Kill him. If you go right you can 
  enter upper room and find a Combat Shotgun and a Health Icon.

  Go through the double doors and proceed to the next floor.

  Floor 2: Drug Lab
  *****************
  When you get to the top of the stairs you will find another enemy and a 
  Body Armor Icon. Kill him and he will drop an M4.

  Behind the next set of double doors is a hallway that leads to another set 
  of double doors. This hallway also contains an enemy so kill him and get to 
  the next set of double doors.

  Behind this set of double doors is a large room with pillars similar to the 
  last one. But this one has machinery and explosive barrels. Plus some of 
  the enemies have M4s.

  Poke through the left door and use it as a sheild so you can clear the room 
  of some enemies. You can also target the explosive barrels to get rid of 
  some of the enemies. The machinery can be used as cover so you can get rid 
  of the rest. Once you have cleared the room, proceed up the the stairs on 
  the east side of the room and head west along the walkway.

  As you get near the corner, a couple of enemies will enter through the west 
  door and will shoot you from below. Kill them and proceed. As you go around 
  the room and head east, you will see some explosive barrels. As you get 
  near the door ahead, a couple of enemies will emerge. You can either shoot 
  them or the explosive barrels to kill them.

  When you get through the doors and look right you will see a Health Icon. 
  Go through the set of doors ahead of you to go to the next floor.
  
  Floor 3: Ballas Lounge
  **********************
  When you get to the top of the stairs you will find another enemy and a 
  Body Armor Icon. When you go through the double doors you will find a 
  couple of enemies guarding the entrance of the lounge.

  Go through the next set of doors to enter the lounge and you will be beset 
  by several enemies including one with a Shotgun. With the M4 you can kill 
  them all quickly. There is also another enemy in the next part of the 
  lounge lobby. Kill him then go through the next set of doors.

  When you look left you will see a statue of Big Smoke and several enemies 
  nearby. Kill them all then head right. Some more enemies will appear 
  including two with Shotguns. Use the pillars as cover and kill them all. 
  You will see two sets of doors on opposite sides of the hall. These are 
  private dance rooms and one has a Health Icon and the other has a Body 
  Armor Icon. They also have an enemy you have to kill before picking up any 
  icons.

  Proceed through the hall and turn left so you can go through the next set 
  of doors. This will lead you to the next set of stairs and to.....

  Floor 4: Big Smoke
  ******************
  When you get here you will start a cutscene with Big Smoke. After that you 
  have to kill him.

  With the M4, hold down Target and Attack when locked on Big Smoke. Don't 
  let up the buttons at all. Because of the high Weapon Skill level you can 
  follow him while firing at him. Ignore the guys that come to help him. It 
  will take quite a few rounds to kill him but with the M4 this can still be 
  done quickly even with Big Smoke wearing Body Armor.

  Afterwards Tenpenny comes to visit. CJ is forced to put money into a 
  suitcase. Then Tenpenny tries to kill CJ but is thwarted. He then runs from 
  the scene and sets fire to the building to try to kill CJ. The explosion 
  also knocks out the lights and thus setting the scene for.....

  The Escape
  **********
  You have seven minutes to get out of the building. CJ grabbed the Night 
  Vision Goggles when he killed Big Smoke. Select them and use them. Switch 
  back to your M4. You also need to go out the same way you came in.

  When you get back down to the Ballas Lounge you will be shot at by more 
  enemies. Even though the building's on fire you still need to shoot your 
  way out. However, there are not as many as before. Kill all of the enemies 
  you see then head down stairs to the Drug Lab.

  When you get to the Drug Lab you will find the place engulfed in flames. 
  You will also see more enemies shooting at you. However, you are on the 
  upper floor and they are below. You can use your vantage point to kill them 
  all before proceeding.

  The game also prompts you to pick up the Fire Extinguisher to you can put 
  out flames to aid your escape. This will take time which you don't have 
  much of. If you have the Fireproof Feature, from doing the Firetruck 
  Mission, you can just walk through the flames with no damage. Go onto the 
  walkway, proceed downward, and through the door leading down to Security 
  Area.

  Once again, you have to shoot your way out of the area. This time some of 
  the enemies have M4s so you can get a little ammo when you kill one. After 
  clearing the Security Area of all enemies proceed downward and outside.

  Make your way back to the opening you made with the SWAT Tank killing all 
  of the enemies you see. When you get through the opening you will have made 
  your escape and move onto.....

  At this point Sweet jumps from his car and grabs the ladder of the 
  Firetruck that Tenpenny is using to make his escape. Now CJ has to chase 
  after the Firetruck and save Sweet. He will get into the nearby car and 
  chase him.

  This is a long chase. As you proceed through the chase you will bombarded 
  with Molotovs but they will do no damage to the car.

  As the chase goes through Ocean Docks, one of the rookies that are with 
  Tenpenny will exit the Firetruck and try to knock Sweet off. You now have 
  to get under Sweet before he loses his grip. If you don't get him in time, 
  he will fall off and you will fail the mission. Try to position yourself so 
  the hood of the car is underneath Sweet.

  When you catch Sweet, the two of you switch places and CJ will now start 
  shooting using a Micro SMG. This part plays out like the last part of 
  "Reuniting The Families". You use your Micro SMG and shoot at the attacking 
  cars to keep them from destroying you. If the car's health line is reduced 
  to nothing, the car will be destroyed and you will fail the mission. 
  Fortunately, most of the attacking cars are easily destroyed. When you 
  encounter motorcycles, aim for the driver so the cycle will wreck.

  Like the chase itself, this part is long and will wind through most of the 
  eastern part of Los Santos. Eventually, you will go north over Ganton and 
  then south through East Los Santos. As Tenpnney nears the bridge that goes 
  over Grove Street he will lose control and go over the edge. When you start 
  the cutscens of him going over, you can put your controller down for you 
  have just beaten the game.

     "See you around.....Officer."

  Congratulations! Now just sit back and watch the cutscenes and credits 
  unfold.....

Although the Rhino looks cooler than in the last two chapters of GTA (it
looks similar to an M1 Abrams) it is also clearly the weakest. It is a bit
easier to destroy and the camera is linked to the turret thus making it quite
difficult to do the Tank Gun Boost. However, one little advantage, is that
you can shoot down low flying helicopters in the Rhino because it has an
auto-aim feature.

So now I've come to the end of yet another gaming adventure and looking
forward to new ones. I hope that my guide helps you in getting the most out
of "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas".
