MAIN MISSION #73 - The Third Way

Last Updated:
MAIN MISSION #73 - The Third Way
1. Time: Complete within 21:30.
2. Headshots: Kill 20 enemies with a headshot.
3. Accuracy: Finish with a shooting accuracy of at least 70%
4. Stick, Tick... Boom!: Kill Cheng with a Sticky Bomb.
5. Lead Lobotomy: Kill Steve Haines with a headshot.
6. Stretched Out: Kill Stretch with a melee attack.

It is highly advisable to purchase some heavy armor before doing this mission. The grenade launcher with plenty of ammunition is also invaluable.

You have three options here, but for now this guide is going to take the hard route; the other two will be added tomorrow. Drive to Lester's place to discuss the situation, then head to Franklin's old house to pick up Lamar. Drive to the indicated factory afterwards and head inside to watch a scene.

**** is about to hit the fan; both Merryweather and the FIB will be searching the place any minute. Start taking them out one by one and switch characters whenever required. When Lamar calls for Franklin's help, go upstairs and move to the far end of the walkway, turn left and go outside. Quickly start taking out more enemies and use your grenade launcher to take out vehicles. After clearing out the area in front (near Lamar), switch back to Michael and clear the area, then move to Trevor.

Head outside (together with Trevor) and take out another wave of enemies, using any means necessary. Especially watch out for any enemies climbing up the ladder of the walkway if you decide to stay there for the moment. Be sure to make use of the holy grenade launcher to wipe out any vehicles including the incoming chopper(s). When you've dealt with the last few enemies, all that's left to do now are the following things:

1. Kill Cheng with Franklin. You can use sticky bombs to take out his vehicle. Quickly pull out the grenade launcher to destroy the other two vehicles and you should be able to escape without any Wanted Level whatsoever.

2. Waste Stretch with Michael. Don't get too close to his parked vehicle; instead, get out of your car in the main street, pull out the grenade launcher and pop him. Quickly escape the area by car, as his homies are eager to gun you down. If you're aiming for 100% completion, however, you'll have to take out Stretch with a melee attack.

3. Murder Steve Haines with Trevor. Steve's in the moving Ferris wheel and thus may be a little difficult to hit. Move to the left side (on which the wheel is coming down) to get a better angle and shoot him in the head when you the chance. Quickly get in your vehicle and escape the area from the cops.

4. Kidnap Devin from his home with Trevor. Although Devin has hired some Merryweather protecting, it's nothing compared to the last few shootouts you've been through. Waste the guards with an assault rifle and approach the swimming pool. Devin is in the trunk, so get close enough to trigger a scene.

Hi, I've completed all the missions, but can't find a way of starting the last one, mm 73. Anyone got any ideas?
