Grand Theft Auto 4: The Ballad of Gay Tony Guide - Walkthrough

Yusuf's Missions - 3: Caught With Your Pants Down

Hop in the car outside and follow the marker on your radar to meet Yusuf in Star Junction. The NOOSE APC Yusuf is after is being airlifted across the city, so you must intercept it by helicopter. Step out your car, get in the helicopter, and ascend. Follow the blue marker on your radar to reach the suspended APC. At this point, Yusuf will take control of the helicopter while you attempt to release the APC before it reaches the police station.

You've been given an Advanced Sniper, a fantastic long-range weapon introduced in the Ballad of Gay Tony. Hold LT to look through the scope and push the Left Stick up to zoom in and down to zoom out. To release the APC from the crane you have to shoot the four yellow bolts on the cables attached to each end of the APC. It's impossible to get a steady shot while sniping from a helicopter, but zooming in very closely seems to help.

Shoot the four yellow bolts to release the APC.

When all four bolts have been destroyed, the APC will plummet to the city streets. After a short scene, Luis will leap from the helicopter with a Parachute strapped to his back. Press the A button to activate the Parachute and try to land as close to the APC as possible. Once on street level, sprint to the APC and hop in.

Upon entering the APC you'll be attributed a four-star wanted level. The APC is quite slow so you will likely have a difficult time losing the cops. Your wanted level will eventually decrease by itself if you wait it out long enough, but trying to shake the cops before that happens is probably your best bet, especially if you're looking to beat the target time. Don't temporarily ditch APC in favour of a faster vehicle for the getaway, as straying too far from the APC will end the mission.

Attached to the APC is a surprisingly ineffective cannon, which you can aim with the Left Stick and fire with LB. Use the cannon to destroy six cop cars to satisfy the “Cop Cars Destroyed” secondary objective.

Once you've lost the cops, drive the APC to the building site at the south end of Algonquin and hit the marker there to complete the mission.

Time: 0:07:25
