MAIN MISSION #53 - Bury the Hatchet

Last Updated:
MAIN MISSION #53 - Bury the Hatchet
EMPLOYER: Michael/Trevor
PREREQUISITES: MM #52 (Surveying the Score)
COMPLETION REQS: 1. Time: Complete within 11:00.
2. Headshots: Kill 20 enemies with headshots.
3. Accuracy: Finish with a shooting accuracy of at least 80%

As Michael, drive to his home to start this main storyline mission. After the scene, drive to the airport and you'll fly to another state with a whole new map - it's not as large as Los Santos obviously, but clearly a lot of work went into it nonetheless.

Drive to the graveyard to meet up with Trevor. Unfortunately for Michael, a firefight with Cheng's men will take place after this. Taking cover behind one of the tombstones near the steps is a good idea; you have a great vantage point with good overview and it should allow you to clear the first few waves of enemies. When they've been thinned out, press onward until you finally reach your car. Kill your opponents with headshots if you're aiming for 100% completion, but mind your accuracy.

After this, fly the plane back to the airstrip and gently land it. Remember to eject the landing gear by pressing the left analog stick, and start your descent early.

I found that if you try and play as Trevor the game crashes with the "disc unreadable error", but playing as Michael still works ok, don't know what's up with that. Trevor gets close to the airfield and something breaks.

Thanks for the "Update,", not only can I *not* get into the hopelessly broken Online, but I can't progress in the campaign, either, and I've lost my favorite character. Nice work.

after the online update this mission cannot be started for me,I cannot switch to michael only as trevor or franklin are playable please help if anyone has any idea of how to start the mission.

I've tried
reloading from a previous save
starting a new mission surveying the score (replaying)
calling michael on the phone to hang out
driving to his house
removing the patch
