MAIN MISSION #18 - Nervous Ron

Last Updated:
MAIN MISSION #18 - Nervous Ron
EMPLOYER: Trevor (Oscar Guzman)
PREREQUISITES: MM #17 (Trevor Philips Industries)
1. Headshots: Kill 5 enemies with a headshot.
2. Time: Complete within 12:30.
3. Nervous Twitch: Win the race against Ron.
4. 6 Bridges, 1 Plane: Fly under any 6 bridges found along the flight path.
5. Death on a Wing: Kill all bikers whilst lying on the plane.

This is a fairly lengthy mission; first you'll have to collect a Sniper Rifle from the Ammu-Nation along with a scope and silencer. Drive to the vantage point afterward. From here, the idea is to cover Ron from any guards. After you kill the first guard below the watchtower, shoot the lights to prevent the guard in the jeep from seeing him. Keep taking out guards - preferably at least 5 with headshots, although those headshots can also be done later - as Ron draws closer to the gas tanks. Also take out the helicopter pilot when he's settled. After it has crashed, quickly make your way over to Ron and kill any bikers in your way (and perform any headshots you still had to make). Beware of the last biker in the hangar as you enter.

While on the wing of the plane, kill all bikers you see - this is part of the requirements for mission completion. First aim for the guy on the bike, then waste the rest in front of you. When you take control of the plane, one of the bikers clings on to the plane. He'll let go sooner or later, so don't worry about it.

Flying is new and thus may be tricky. There are six bridges along the flight path (which essentially means the path that Ron is taking) and if you want this mission fully completed, you'll have to carefully fly underneath all six of them. I'd suggest doing this later on a replay. For now, focus on dropping the cargo near the boats in the sea (but be sure to fly relatively low while near a military base); simply release the cargo while flying through the blue circle on your minimap.

After this, the only thing left to do is to head back to the landing strip. Winning the race against Ron isn't hard, but landing can indeed be tricky, especially if you've never done it before. Try to align the plane correctly as you start to approach the landing strip; this is the most important part and you can't make major adjustments when you're about to land or you'll tear the plane apart. Focus on the landing strip with B (Xbox 360) or Circle (PS3). Stop accelerating and slowly lose some altitude. The landing gear can be extended by pressing the left analog stick.
