Last year, while waiting for "Grand Theft Auto V" to come out, I finally sat
down and did a 100% Completion play-through on the PC version. But GTA V came
out just before I finished that run and this revision got set aside while I
played through the new game and wrote the guide for it. Many months later I
am now finishing with this task.

This revision has some information regarding my PC play-through including new
information on the Bicycle controls, the PlayStation 3, and the mission
"Wrong Side Of The Tracks...". This guide has also been streamlined to
reflect new design ideas implemented during my GTA V guide write up. I also
made some grammar corrections and cleaned up other things.

My name is Robert Allen Rusk and I am a 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 and 2, Xbox, and Xbox 360.

I started writing guides in 2003 because I felt it was something I could do
utilizing my writing skills gained in college and gametesting along with my
passion for vidgames. Over time I have honed my overall writing and
organization skills plus my creative thinking skills. Additionally, I have
extended the play value of the games I have written guides and FAQs for many
times over plus I have received many letters from all over the world.

I am also what one may call an RGB Analog Video enthusiast. I hack most of my
game consoles to try to get the best possible video from them and that
usually involves tapping into the RGB Analog video signals and using them on
the right monitors to achieve my desires. To this end I became a member of
the GamesX.com mod forum and I post on their "RGB + Video Discussions" forum
area from time to time.

In addition, I am a member of the X-Otic Computer Systems of San Antonio
(www.xcssa.org), a group who specializes in Linux, Mac, and other systems. We
are also a group of hackers and electronics enthusiasts.

I am also a regular forum poster at GameFAQs, an occasional poster at
AtariAge, Digital Press, GTA Forums, and Video Game Saga. I am also a member
of The MoFaT (a members only message board set up by "Grand Theft Auto: Vice
City" players who met on the Vice City message boards at GameFAQs).

Outside of gaming, my interests include "Godzilla" (I have been a G-Fan since
the age of ten) and "Red Dwarf". I am also a long time soundtrack collector
with many titles in my possession. As far as favorite sports teams go, my
teams are the San Antonio Spurs (NBA) [the local team], the Denver Broncos
(NFL) [although I live in Texas, I am originally from Colorado Springs,
Colorado] and the Air Force Falcons (NCAA Football).

This guide was constructed using BBEdit Lite 6.1 and a Power Mac Workgroup
Server. It is now being maintained using TextWrangler on an Apple Mac Mini. I
also play "GTA: San Andreas" on my NEC MultiSync 3D RGB monitor using a
homebrew RGB box.

For my guide work I have more than twenty memory cards for my PlayStation 2.
Many of the memory cards are dedicated to "Grand Theft Auto III", "Grand
Theft Auto: Vice City" (Original Version (1.40)), "Grand Theft Auto: Liberty
City Stories", "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories", and "Grand Theft Auto:
San Andreas". One of those is dedicated to the Second Edition of San Andreas.

These memory cards allow me to quickly go and try out new ideas (and modify
old ones) when they occur to me or suggested by others. I have done 100%
Completion on the PS2 (Adults Only and Second Edition Versions), Xbox (Adults
Only and Second Edition Versions), and PC (Adults Only but with the "Cold
Coffee" Patch (V1.01) installed).

Welcome to my "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 in the game. Quotes taken from
readers' e-mail are presented "as is" and may include spelling and
grammatical errors.

The main emphasis of this guide is to provide creative and simple solutions 
to many of the missions in the game. 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 (the exception being the Burglar Side-Mission). This is mainly to keep
things manageable. 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.

Another emphasis of this guide is *ORDER*. If you do the missions and tasks
in a certain order then 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.

There are a total of 250 objects that must be painted over (Los Santos
Graffiti Tags), photographed (San Fierro Photo-Ops), or collected (Las
Venturas Horseshoes, Oysters).

Each Graffiti Tag, Oyster, Photo-Op, and Horseshoe has a letter designation
to make them easier to identify in this guide. In addition, there is a three
letter Neighborhood Prefix (listings below) indicating a particular
neighborhood or area where the item can be found (in these examples I use
"XXX"):

  >>Graffiti Tags (Los Santos) will be identified with an "T".
      --Examples: Graffiti Tag [XXX-T21].
                  Tag [XXX-T32].

  >>Oysters (San Andreas) will be identified with an "Y".
      --Examples: Oyster [XXX-Y34].

  >>Photo-Ops (San Fierro) will be identified with a "P".
      --Examples: Photo-Op [XXX-P27].

  >>Horseshoes (Las Venturas) will be identified with a "H".
      --Examples: Horseshoe [XXX-H18].

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.

But San Andreas is not perfect.....

When the game was first released on the PlayStation 2 and the Original Xbox,
there were a couple of major issues that upset gamers:

  >>Supply Lines (PS2 Adults Only Version)
    **************************************
      One of the characters in the game, Zero, has some Asset Missions for 
      his business. One of them involved flying a small remote controlled 
      plane. And it has been often considered the single worst mission in San 
      Andreas.

      But, to make matters worse, there was a flaw or bug that hindered the 
      player. In the mission you used up fuel no matter what you do. This 
      included gliding (getting in the air and letting off the gas).

      However, in the Xbox and PC versions, you don't use fuel when gliding 
      which made the mission much easier and more manageable. Since, in the 
      PS2 version, you used up fuel when gliding this greatly reduced the 
      range of your plane and made it far more difficult to successfully 
      complete the mission.

  >>Off-Map Glitch (Xbox Adults Only Version)
    *****************************************
      This bug was originally called the "Pilot's License Glitch".

      One of the common tactics to get your Flying Stat maxed out early in 
      the game was to go to Los Santos International Airport and get a Shamal 
      then fly east off the map and return with a fully maxed Flying Stat.

      But, in the Xbox version, something bad happens when you do that. By 
      flying off the map this way then you prevent the Taxi Mission from 
      being completed (no fares will ever show up) and the "Mike Toreno" 
      mission (the game won't recognize when you are near the markers).

      Because the "Mike Toreno" mission is necessary for completion of the 
      Main Story then you would screw yourself and you would need to restart 
      your game either from a point before flying off the map or completely 
      from scratch.

      Initially I felt this bug had to do with the Pilot's License but was 
      informed otherwise by Zoomzoom Moonchild:

        "What triggers the glitch is going off of the regular map and going 
         out into the ocean. If you just keep going and going it does 
         something to the game where it can't recognize certain aspects 
         geographically, such as for the passengers in the Taxi Mission. You 
         can trigger this glitch by swimming out too far, or by traveling too 
         far in a boat or helicopter, however it's a lot easier to trigger 
         the glitch it in a fixed-wing aircraft such as a jet (because they 
         move much faster). Once the glitch has occurred there is no way that 
         I know of to correct it, you must restart from a previously saved 
         game (before the glitch occurred) or start a new game."

      According to Orion_SR, there are certain zone markers that are 
      corrupted and, by flying through them, you are moving certain invisible 
      zones off the map thus causing various problems. The worst of these 
      markers is at the southeast corner of the map.

      Of course, if you fly due east of Los Santos International Airport to 
      max out your Flying Stat, then you fly through this area and seriously 
      muck things up.

      You can actually go north of this area then fly east off the map. 
      However, that doesn't guarantee you won't screw yourself over. 
      According to Orion_SR, you can still get the Glitch by flying off the 
      map anywhere but the fastest way to screw yourself is through this 
      corrupted zone marker at the southeast corner.

      This was also in the PC AO Version of the game which was the version 
      that Orion_SR and Moonchild was using for their data. This problem can 
      be fixed by application of Patch V1.01 which can still be found on 
      Rockstar's website.

      And, because of this information, it was best to rename this bug to 
      better reflect its actual origins.

You may have also noticed that these bugs affected what are known as the
Adults Only version of the game. And this leads to something that was far
more devastating than any bug.....

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

In the spring of 2012 a book called "Jacked: The Outlaw Story of Grand Theft
Auto" (by David Kushner) was released. It details the history of Rockstar
Games from its beginnings to the present (as of publishing). The last third
of the book chronicles the infamous "Hot Coffee" scandal, the basics of which
are as follows:

During the development of San Andreas, Sam Houser, head of Rockstar Games,
wanted to push the limits of what could be done in the game. Specifically, he
wanted to push the sexual boundaries and requested information on how certain
sexual situations would affect video game ratings around the world.

As this was going on, there were several pieces of sexually related
programming placed into the game. This included a mini-game where you could
make CJ sexually please a woman, even though both CJ and his partner would
still be clothed. This mini-game would be activated when you were invited by
your date to come inside for coffee thus the name "Hot Coffee".

When Dan got his information back, he found that the US had the most
restrictions of all. Even so, he still wanted to push the limits. However,
his partners felt that it was too much and managed to get Dan to scale things
back. Some of the related programming got altered or removed.

But time was getting close to releasing the PS2 version of the game and
something had to be done about the mini-game in question. The decision was
made to disconnect the code from the rest of the game and burying it without
removing it (a process called wrapping). Rockstar felt that no one would find
it.

They were wrong.

Shortly after the release of the PS2 version a Dutch gamer and modder,
Patrick Wildenborg, started poking around with the game and found the code.
He hooked up with fellow game modders over at GTAForums to figure out what it
was. Even though they weren't able to run it, because it was for the PS2,
they figured out what the mini-game was.

When the PC version finally came out then Patrick and his friends went
straight to the area where they hoped to find the suspect code in that
version. This is because the PC version can be modded which is something that
can't be done to either the PC or Xbox versions. They found the code and
quickly got it to run. Then they posted videos on the net which spread
rapidly.

At first Rockstar Games thought it was cool that the modders, which they were
always friendly with, managed to find and unlock this content on their own.
But, as word continued to spread, activists and lawmakers, concerned over the
increasing amount of sex and violence in games, began to hound and question
the company.

Worse, the ESRB (Entertainment Software Ratings Board), which originally
rated the game M (Mature), had questions of their own. Such as, was the code
on the disc. Rockstar said no. The modders said yes.

Then Rockstar put out a press release that blamed the modders for creating
the mini-game, effectively stabbing the modding community in the back. It was
considered a major public relations blunder which was made worse when the
ESRB finished their investigation that concluded that the code was indeed on
the disc of all the platform versions (PC, PS2, Xbox) of the game.

Considering the fact that the PS2 and Xbox versions could not be modded like
the PC version this exposed Rockstar's lies about the code. Upset that they
had been lied to the ESRB retroactively re-rated all copies of San Andreas to
Adults Only (AO).

Virtually all retail outlets in the United States will not carry AO rated
titles so this essentially forced an immediate recall of the game. Rockstar
began work to put out a "Hot Coffee" free version as soon as possible to help
recoup the losses they suffered, with one report saying that Take Two
Interactive would lose as much as $50 million, over this controversy.

Countries outside of the US were chuckling at the whole matter wondering what
the fuss was about considering that their views on sex are more relaxed than
America's.

This scandal, along with another scandal involving improper finances at
Rockstar's parent company Take-Two Interactive, caused a lot of stress and
grief within the company. As they rushed to pull off the old copies and put
out "Hot Coffee"-free versions several prominent members of Rockstar's staff
would leave the company.

Worse, several games released during this time, including "Bully", "The
Warriors", and "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories", performed below
expectations which increased the stress within Rockstar Games.

In time, though, things began to slowly settle down and work began on "Grand
Theft Auto IV". When the game was released in April of 2008 it became the
most successful product launch of all time (according to Guinness World
Records). However, it would be later surpassed by "Call of Duty: Black Ops"
and, as of September 2013, "Grand Theft Auto V" which amassed over a billion
dollars in its first three days of release.

In the end, the scandal would actually make the industry stronger and more
mature. One additional silver lining was that, while they were making the new
version of San Andreas, Rockstar was given the opportunity to fix problems
that managed to get past them in the previous versions.

These new versions would be called the Second Edition and this leads to the
next chapter.....

Shortly after their releases I acquired the Second Edition versions for both
the Xbox and PlayStation 2 consoles. As with the various versions of Vice
City, the game saves from the AO Version of San Andreas will *NOT* work with
the Second Edition Version.

However, as it was pointed out on various forums, whenever you change the
main program even a little then this will cause the game saves to be
incompatible. There is nothing that anyone can do about it and this is
something that we will have to live with.

Listed below are the differences between the Original and Second Edition
versions. They are categorized by platform.

      The only change in the box art is the inclusion, in small letters along

      very helpful but better than nothing. In addition, the Platinum Hits 
      version of San Andreas is also the Second Edition version.

      On the game disc itself there should be the words "Second Edition" just

  >>Box Art
    *******
      The packaging for the Second Edition is much different than the regular 
      packaging. The case is thicker and the main lettering is in gold. The 
      game comes with two discs. There is the game disc and there is a second 
      disc that contains three movies:

        --The Introduction
          ================
            A short film that was originally included with the soundtrack box 
            set. This film chronicles the events leading up to the beginning 
            of the game.

        --Sunday Driver
          =============
            A short documentary about a low rider club.

        --Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories
          ======================================
            The trailer for the popular PlayStation Portable (PSP) game that 
            would later be released for the PlayStation 2.

  >>"Supply Lines" Fixed
    *********************
      This was a major bug that was found in this mission within the PS2 AO 
      Version. Since the fuel problem never happened in either the Original 
      Xbox and PC ports this leaves the PS2 AO Version as the only version 
      with this bug.

  >>Secret Pay 'N' Spray Closed
    ***************************
      In the Original version there was a secret Pay 'N' Spray just east of 
      The Strip in Las Venturas. This was also a place where you could enter 
      Grey Hell (where the door meets the ground).

      In the Xbox and PC versions the door remains closed so you can't enter. 
      On the PS2 Second Edition version not only is the door closed but all 
      of the signage has been removed.

  >>Pool Playing Glitch Fixed
    *************************
      According to multiple forum posters, Rockstar fixed the Pool Playing 
      Glitch. In the Original version, if you pointed a gun at people in a 
      bar where there is a pool table you can play, then you would not be 
      able to play pool anywhere in the game ever again. Rockstar went and 
      fixed that.

  >>Icon For Cluckin' Bell
    **********************
      There is now an icon for the Cluckin' Bell south of the Movie Studio in 
      Market (Los Santos). In the Original Version the Icon for this Cluckin' 
      Bell was missing.

  >>Girlfriend Glitch Fixed?
    ************************
      Many people have had problems getting their Girlfriends to show up when 
      they are supposed to in the Original version.

      However, according to quest78, who posted his find at the GameFAQs 
      Message Boards, he noticed that he no longer had any problems getting 
      the Girlfriends to show up when he got the Second Edition version.

      I have not verified this myself since I never played around with the 
      Girlfriend feature but this info looked solid enough to include in this 
      document.

  >>Overall
    *******
      The graphics for the PlayStation 2 version of San Andreas appear to be 
      less clean than the PlayStation 2 version of Vice City. But it is still 
      impressive.

      However, there has been complaints about it being very orange in Los 
      Santos and darker in most other areas (regardless of whether or not you 
      view it in Composite Video, S-Video, Component Video, or RGB Analog 
      Video).

      The controls are pretty solid and are improved from Vice City. In 
      addition, the sound is pretty good and I haven't encountered any 
      problems with it. 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).

  >>Xploder HDTV Player
    *******************
      Xploder HDTV Player is a disc that will allow PlayStation 2 owners to 
      play most of their games in Progressive Scan mode. Many games will work 
      but some of them will have issues.

      San Andreas works great in 480p mode. However, the main title intro 
      will be a little glitchy because of "line meshing issues". This is 
      because the intro is actually a "film" instead of using the game 
      graphics. It is to my understanding that XHDTV doesn't handle film 
      based stuff well and that results in the jittery looking intro.

      But this is actually a minor problem since you can easily skip the 
      opening credits by pressing the X Button. Once you get past the intro 
      then all is good.

      Because the graphics are designed for 480 vertical resolution, it is 
      not recommended that you put San Andreas in any mode higher than 480p. 
      The higher resolution modes, like 720p, simply shoehorn the 480 
      graphics into the higher end modes and tend to really squash the 
      screen.

  >>GS Mode Selector
    ****************
      This is a small program that is used with the memory card exploit known 
      as Free McBoot. Like with HDTV Viewer you can also view games in 
      progressive scan using this program. Unfortunately, this program does 
      not work with San Andreas.

  >>HDLoader
    ********
      This program, which has been floating around the internet for years, 
      will let you install your favorite games onto a hard drive (assuming 
      you have an older style PS2 "Fatty" (with a Network Adapter) or an 
      early version of a PS2 "Slim" that has been modified to use a hard 
      drive).

      There are two variants of this program. The first variant is HDLoader 
      which is freeware and HDAdvance which is not. It is best to use 
      HDLoader since it is free and gets updated from time to time to improve 
      compatibility and functionality.

      HDLoader is best installed with a popular memory card exploit known as 
      Free McBoot. It is how I am using HDLoader now (with a 160GB hard 
      drive). San Andreas, from what I know, has always been compatible with 
      the earliest versions of HDAdvance and HDLoader. Why install the game 
      on a hard drive?

      For starters, less wear and tear on the DVD-ROM mechanism (that is 
      assuming if it still works - thankfully you can install games onto the 
      hard drive from a PC as an option using a program called WiinHip). But 
      mainly it is for faster loading speeds. Listed below is the speed 
      difference with HDLoader in certain situations:

        ++After selecting the game in the HDLoader menu, it takes less than 
          five seconds to get to the logo screen since it doesn't do the 
          PlayStation 2 splash screen.

        ++The initial load is a little faster and smoother.

        ++Entering/exiting buildings and closets are much faster.

        ++Loading up missions and cutscenes are faster.

        ++Loading up game saves is much faster.

        ++Going into the pause menu is much faster.

        ++Texture loading is faster (but there still are a few areas that 
          have some problems loading in a timely manner).

        ++Object loading is much faster (reducing the chances of hitting 
          invisible objects - objects that are "there" but you can't see 
          because the graphic hasn't loaded up yet).

  >>Open PS2 Loader
    ***************
      This program is meant to replace HDLoader and is more solid than HDL. 
      You use this in place of HDL and it will recognize the HDD and all the 
      games you have already installed. OPL, or "Opal" as I like to call it, 
      has its own compatibility modes for games and won't recognize the 
      settings used in HDL.

      Based on the time I have played San Andreas on Opal I found it to run 
      just as smooth as it was on HDL.

Some of the earlier PlayStation 3 units available offer backwards
compatibility with the PlayStation 1 and PlayStation 2 games. Recently I
acquired an older BC PlayStation 3 and spent a little time with it. Before I
get to my observations here are a couple from other readers:

First, from Ben Riemer:

  "I would say the graphics are worst in the PS3 version than the PS2 version 
   because the PS3 does not do a good job on rendering graphics. The HUD does 
   not look as smooth as it would on the PS2 or Xbox version of the game. The 
   games lags in more places too. The game lags when you are going off hills 
   in the NW area of San Fierro. Since the sixaxis controller doesn't rumble, 
   that is a lost too. I haven't tried it with the new dualshock controllers 
   yet, because I do not own one. However, other than that, the game is the 
   same as it was on the PS2. My PS3 is the old 20GB version of the system 
   and I played at standard defintion (480i)."

Second, from Kris Hall:

  "I currently own the AO version and play on my PS3 and I can say I have not 
   noticed much of a difference graphically as it seems to look very close to 
   what it did on the PS2.

   I agree with Mr. Riemer that some spots are laggy but I play on a 160gb... 
   (I can't recall the exact size now because I replaced the HDD with a 
   bigger one, but it was the last model before they took out the card 
   readers and the extra 2 USB ports) and a 55" DLP (IDK what def I play at 
   because of the upscaleing) but the HUD is still sharp enough for me.

   The tactile feedback of the DS3 is close enough to the DS2 for me that I 
   do not notice a difference.

   Also I've noticed more falling planes this play through than the last as I 
   was almost killed by two of them but IDK if there is any coincidence to 
   playing on different hardware as that shouldn't effect the AI but it was 
   really random and I thought it was worth sharing."

       <0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+<<##0##>>+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0>

I only spent a small amount of time playing San Andreas on my unit as I
wanted to get this revision done. The upscaled graphics take some getting
used to, especially on my flatscreen monitor. I didn't have any problems with
graphics or sound glitches so far.

One major plus for the PS3 is the ability to create virtual Memory Cards. You
can create as many as you want and it will be stored on the HDD. To switch
out cards you use the PS Button to bring up the system menu and you can
easily switch them out before going back to the game. This is great if you
wish to archive saves.

  >>Overall
    *******
      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 (Component Video only) for the Xbox version. 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 its custom soundtrack feature.

      The controls 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 its 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.

      The Xbox version 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 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.

  >>Original Xbox and PS2 Version Differences
    *****************************************
      At this time there are a couple of differences between the PS2 and Xbox 
      versions:

        ++Shady Industries in San Fierro is now called Solarin Industries.

        ++The secret Pay 'N' Spray east of The Strip in Las Venturas (found 
          in the Original PS2 version) has been deactivated.

| D. Xbox 360 |~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\
0+=+=+=+=+=+=+0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0

The Original Xbox version of "San Andreas" works with the latest Backward
Compatibility updates for the Xbox 360 (you need the Hard Drive to play
Original Xbox games on the X360).

You can play San Andreas in many different resolutions depending on your
monitor or HDTV setup. Unlike "Grand Theft Auto III" and "Grand Theft Auto:
Vice City", the main title intro for San Andreas plays flawlessly.

San Andreas looks great in 640x480 (although it is pillarboxed on my NEC
MultiSync 3D) and looks better in 1024x768. However, at that high a
resolution, you may notice a little bit of jagginess here and there due to
the upscaling of the graphics.

The emulator for San Andreas runs this game pretty well. I have yet to 
encounter any slowdown (even in the clouds).

However, texture loading is terrible. This is probably a combination of the
DVD-ROM drive, the emulator, and the fact that Original Xbox games can't use
the hard drive for caching when played on the Xbox 360.

There are three things to know about playing San Andreas on the Xbox 360:

  >>You can't do custom soundtracks like you could on the Original Xbox.
  >>You can't transfer game saves to an external memory card for safekeeping.
  >>You can't transfer games saves from the Original Xbox to the Xbox 360.

But one good thing about playing San Andreas on the Xbox 360 is that the
White and Black buttons (from the Original Xbox controller) are replaced by
the Left and Right Bumpers which are situated above the Left and Right
Triggers on the Xbox 360 pad. This makes it much easier to fly aircraft.

Sadly, even if you use a USB-to-Xbox adapter, you cannot use an Xbox 360
controller with the Original Xbox.

One of the things that the Intel based Macintoshes can do is something called
BootCamp. This will allow you to install Windows on the Mac on its own
partition and you can switch to that operating system when you want to.

There is now a Mac version of the game available but it is actually the PC
version that is made to work on the Intel Macs by using something called
"wrappers". It may be best to track down the PC version and find a wrapper
that is best suited to what version of OSX you have since I know that the
official wrapped version of Vice City will not work on version OSX 10.8 and
above.

Out of all the platform versions the PC version of San Andreas is the best
overall. This is also dependent on the machine you have. The game came out
nearly ten years ago and the specs to run it are pretty mid-range by today's
standards. I have a Dell Optiplex GX620 at 3.2GHz and 2GB of RAM (cost less
that $100) and a GeForce GT 610 video card installed (cost about $50). And
the game runs very well in that setup.

The graphics are excellent and you can use a variety of resolutions. And you
can copy your game saves into outside folders for safekeeping (the files have
names like GTASAsf8.b). You can also customize your controls to your liking,
something the other console versions won't allow you to do. You can also
patch and mod the game to your liking if that is something you wish to try.

However, even though you play the game off a hard drive, there are problems
with texture loading and pop-in - even worse than the console versions. It is
unclear if using the super fast Solid State Drives (SSD) will correct this
particular problem.

And, although you can customize the controls to your liking, they are much
more complex and may take awhile to wrap your head around. Then there is also
the issue of using joypads which I will cover later in this document.

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. From this point
forward you will see me write about certain Stats starting with the next
chapter.....

Although the manual covers the setup pretty good, I felt that I should 
include a section on controls. I have also included basic action, vehicle,
and Stats information with their respective control schemes.

As with any GTA game, there are plenty of things you can do when on foot.
And, by doing certain activities on foot, you can increase your Stamina and
Health Stats. Increasing your Stamina will allow you to sprint longer on
foot, in the water and on a bicycle. However you can gain Infinite Stamina by
successfully completing the Burglar Side-Mission (explained later).

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. You can also max out your Health Stat by successfully
completing the Ambulance Mission.

[1] - There is no First Person Look Around like there was in GTA3 and GTA: 
      Vice City. This Camera Control follows the Third Person control style 
      found in most Third Person games.

[2] - If you hold down the Run button too long then 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 more you 
      increase your Stamina Stat.

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

[4] - When holding a melee weapon (like a bat) or using your Fist then the 
      Attack Button is used to swing at your target. When using Grenades or 
      Tear Gas then 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 9mm Pistol) or a heavy weapon (like 
      a RPG) then you use the Attack Button to shoot. Use the Target 
      Button in conjunction to aim at your enemy. When used with a Camera 
      then the Attack Button is used to take pictures.

[5] - This button is used for different actions:
        --Center the Camera.
        --Checking your Stats (when outside of a vehicle).
        --Fire weapon.
        --Buy Property.

[6] - On the Xbox 360 this is the Left Bumper which is situated above the 
      Left Trigger.

[7] - On the Xbox 360 this is the Right Bumper which is situated above the 
      Right Trigger.

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

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

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

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

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

Unlike most of the GTA games, your main character can swim. This can be
pretty useful for eluding pursuit and general exploring.

Swimming underwater will gradually increase your Lung Capacity Stat which
will allow you to stay underwater for long periods of time. This is very
helpful for acquiring Oysters which are found in the water all around San
Andreas.

You can also max out your Lung Capacity Stat and increasing your Sex Appeal
by collecting all of the Oysters found around the San Andreas area.

In San Andreas you can 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 get onto a bike then press Pedal to move forward. 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 down the L1 Button (PS2) or the B Button (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 are climbing a steep incline then
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 then you
will wreck (as well as killing the pedestrian).

When you max out your Cycling Skill then you can do very high Bunny-Hops.
But, according to Pedro Palhoto, you also get something called the Bicycle
Double Bunny Hop feature. After releasing the regular hop button then you
press the Fire Button to hop again while in the air.

As with all the other GTAs, there are plenty of cars and other vehicles to
use in San Andreas. From junkers and gang cars to the fanciest sports cars.
They are all represented.

When you first start the game and enter a car you will see that the car might
not handle too well. This is not necessarily 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.

The fastest way to max out your Bike Skill is to do the Bike School in Las
Venturas after completion of the mission "Yay Ka Boom Boom".

Just like in most of the other GTAs, the motorcycles are great for
exploration, jumping, and looking cool on. The single biggest advantage to
the bikes is the fact that you can shoot forward (using a submachine gun)
while riding one.

However, there are a couple of disadvantages. First, it is much easier for a 
cop to knock you off and bust you than if he busts you in a car. Second, you 
can easily wipe out or get knocked off by other motorists if you're not 
careful.

But let's not forget the boats. Because of the vast amount of water all
around San Andreas, there are plenty of boats to use. From sailboats and
speedboats to yachts and hovercrafts. Although there are no Sailing Stats,
you still need to complete the Boat School for 100% Completion.

**NOTE: Due to the difficulty of driving and doing drive-bys 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 the L1 and R1 Buttons respectively).

        I used a PS2-to-Xbox controller adapter while playing through the 
        Xbox version. Those who play San Andreas (Xbox) on the Xbox 360 will 
        have a much easier time because of where the White and Black buttons 
        are remapped.

      Left Trigger.

[4] - On the Xbox 360 this is the Right Bumper which is situated above the 
      Right Trigger.

[5] - 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 then 
      this will also activate the Nitros on any Nitros installed vehicle.

[6] - When using the User Track Station (custom soundtrack feature) on the 
      Original Xbox 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.
      -----------------------------------------------------------------------
      **NOTE: This is not available when playing San Andreas on the Xbox 360.

[7] - According to Allan Curtis, when you fail a mission and start it again, 
      then you may get the Trip Skip icon. When you press it then 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" where you 
      have to drive a considerable distance to get to your destination.

0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0

Another vehicle related Stat you can increase is the Flying Skill. The more
you fly a plane, or helicopter, the more you increase this Skill. When you
reach about 20% through maxing your Flying Skill then 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 Flight School which
is opened up later in the game. However, you can still upgrade your Flying
Skill while still confined in Los Santos. Get a car and go to the runway gate
near the pink and green Nude Shop in El Corona.

Put the vehicle up 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).
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
**IMPORTANT: On the Xbox AO Version you have to be careful when trying to 
             upgrade your Flying Skill early. You may risk triggering what is 
             known as the Off-Map Glitch (explained earlier) and you will 
             screw yourself out of game completion. This has been confirmed 
             fixed for the Xbox SE Version.

             This is also in the PC AO Version but can be fixed with the 1.01 
             patch.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you accidentally fly into an Unwelcome Area then 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 a jet. 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.

  >>The Hydra
    *********
      One of the jets you can use in the game is the Hydra military plane 
      which is based on the popular Harrier hover jet. When you first enter a 
      Hydra you will be in Hover Mode. Go high up in the air before switching 
      modes.

      To go from Hover Mode to Jet Mode push Up on the Right Analog Stick for
      several seconds. When you want to go from Jet Mode to Hover Mode then 
      pull Down on the Right Analog Stick for several seconds.

      You can earn this jet by taking one during the "Military Service" 
      Vehicle Race, by completing the mission "Vertical Bird", or by 
      obtaining 100% Completion where one will spawn on top of Sweet's house 
      in Ganton.

  >>Skydiving
    *********
      If you want to skydive then press Exit Vehicle while in an airplane 
      high in the air. Push forward on the Left Analog Stick to fall faster. 
      Press Attack to deploy the Parachute. You can control your direction 
      with the Left Analog Stick. To slow your descent then pull back on the 
      stick. You can actually fly pretty far this way.

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

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

There are plenty of helicopters to use in San Andreas. They can be used to
quickly fly from one part of San Andreas to another.

One of the helicopters available in the game is the Hunter which is a
powerful attack chopper and an excellent vehicle to do the Vigilante Mission
in. You can earn one by completing Flight School or by taking one when doing
the "Heli Hell" Vehicle Race.

After completion of the mission "Green Goo" then you will be able to use a
Jetpack which will spawn near the entrance of the Verdant Meadows Aircraft
Graveyard Safehouse. This is the only place where the Jetpack spawns. The
Jetpack will allow you to access hard to reach areas of San Andreas.

You can use Weapons when using the Jetpack but only three: the Tec-9, the
Micro SMG and the 9mm Pistol.

0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0

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 much
easier to destroy and the camera is linked to the turret thus making it quite
difficult to do the Tank Gun Boost.

But you can still do the Tank Gun Boost if you switch to either the First
Person or Cinematic view once the turret is pointing behind you. This will
lock the turret in place. Thanks to Diego Mendez who found this out and was
relayed to me by Glen T. Winstein.

However, one little advantage is that you can shoot down low flying
helicopters in the Rhino because you can use the Right Analog Stick to aim
the gun upward.

You can earn this tank by taking one during a 6-Star Wanted Rating, from
Restricted Area (Desert) or by obtaining 100% Completion where one will
spawn near the Johnson residence in Ganton (Los Santos).

| J. PC Controls Data |~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\
0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0

The PC version uses the standard mouse/keyboard system which gives a wide
range of flexibility to those who are proficient with it, especially since
you can re-assign commands to any key on the keyboard. But it can be
confusing to the newcomer since many of the commands that are usually done
with one button on a console controller are split onto several keys.

The good news is that you can simplify things by combining commands under one
key. An example: on the PS2 you enter/exit vehicles by using the Triangle
Button. This same button is used to buy food from Snack Machines. On the PC,
the F Key is used to enter/exit vehicles and the Return Key is used for the
Snack Machines.

For each PC command there is a primary column (F Key) and a secondary
function column (Ret). To combine commands simply highlight the row, hit
Backspace to remove all commands, and press the F Key to set the new command
but no other commands for secondary functions. Thus the F Key is now used for
entering/exiting vehicles and for Snack Machines, just like the consoles.

There is also a joypad option for those who wish to use it. Activating it
will change how the camera is controlled, how you target people, and being
able to use and assign the joypad buttons. It won't de-activate the keyboard
so you can still use it for other commands.

However, using the joypad has its own set of problems.

For starters, not all joypads can work properly with this game. My main
joypad for PC gaming is the Xbox 360 joypad. But it won't recognize the Right
Analog Stick and it counts the D-Pad as a movement control even though you
can use the Left Analog Stick for that.

The main reason for this, based on some research, has to do with something
called the POV Hat. Apparently Rockstar Games didn't program the joypad
scripting properly and this effects overall joypad compatibility. This
could've been something to be patched but this scripting is hardcoded into
the main program which makes is very difficult or impossible to correct. This
was also done on both GTA3 and Vice City.

If you wish to use a joypad then you need to find one that will work
properly. Shortly after I started my 100% Completion run on the PC version I
was given a Logitech Dual Action joypad by a friend. It recognized the Right
Analog Stick but wouldn't "disengage" the D-Pad from being a movement
control. This was okay because on the consoles the D-Pad was mainly used for
little used commands and I used the keyboard to handle those.

Then there was the joypad buttons. Although you can map them out pretty well
to match the console versions, mainly the PS2 version since the Dual Action
resembles a PS2 controller, combining commands onto certain buttons proved to
be irritating.

For example, if you want to make one button or key to do both Center Camera
and Action (such as buying property and switching out weapons) the game won't
let you as this will cause the commands to be unbound. This made layering
certain commands onto other commands impossible, at least within the game.

Thankfully, Xpadder (and JoyToKey) will allow you to layer extra commands
onto the joypad buttons to more closely approach the console versions even
when the game itself won't let you.

The combination of key re-assigning and programs like Xpadder makes the
controls for the PC version of San Andreas extremely flexible once you know
how things operate. This also makes certain tasks, which are frustrating on
the console versions, much easier and I will cover those later in the
document.

(when you are in the water), your money and the weapon or item you are

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 its current maximum.
There are very few Health Icons in San Andreas unlike all the other GTAs.

If you wish to make CJ muscular then 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 completion of the
mission "Ryder". Each place has a Map Icon for easy location:

  >>The Well Stacked Pizza Co.
    **************************
      Map Icon: Pizza Slice.

  >>Cluckin' Bell
    *************
      Map Icon: Chicken Head.

  >>Burger Shot
    ***********
      Map Icon: Hamburger.

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 plus Food Stands and Hot Dog Vans
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 and Vans but it will take awhile to
build up a sizable Fat Stat this way. However, you can use these machines,
along with the Beach Gym at Santa Maria Beach (Los Santos), to help build up
some muscle before you open up any of the restaurants and gyms.

"Respect is everything" went the tagline for Grand Theft Auto 2.

And it has been resurrected for this game. Having respect will allow you to
easily recruit gang members for various activities, getting Girlfriends, and
will impact how people look at you. Some of the things that change your
Respect are:

  >>Killing Cops and rival gang members.
  >>Progressing through the Main Story Missions.
  >>Doing certain Missions.

But there are other things that can affect your Respect.....

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 then 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
then 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 then you can make CJ really buffed and
ripped. This will also make your physical attacks a lot more damaging and
you increase your Sex Appeal which will help with getting certain
Girlfriends.

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, then
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 then 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 location on the in-game and 
              printed Map.

  >>Ganton (Los Santos)
    *******************
      This is opened after completion of the mission "Drive Thru".

  >>Madd Dogg's Crib (Los Santos)

      You gain access to the Gym within the mansion after completion of the

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 
      the Run and Attack Buttons alternatively and quickly to make CJ do 
      reps.

  >>Dumbbells
    *********
      You use this to gain Muscle. Select the weight you want to try and tap 
      the Run and Attack Buttons alternatively and quickly to make CJ do 
      reps.

  >>Trainers
    ********
      You can also learn new fighting moves from the Trainers in each Gym 
      except for the Santa Maria Beach Gym). It is also a requirement for 
      100% Completion as you have to defeat the Trainer in order to learn the 
      moves.

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 and tattoos 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, you can also change clothes to get rid of Wanted Ratings.
But you don't need to change the entire outfit. You can just switch one item
to get rid of the 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 (and listed in each major section in the guide):

  >>Binco
    *****
      Opens: After "Nines and AK's".
      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.

  >>ProLaps
    *******
      Opens: After "Nines and AK's".
      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.

  >>SubUrban
    ********
      Opens: After "Nines and AK's".
      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.

  >>Zip
    ***
      Opens: After "Are You Going To San Fierro?".
      Motto: "Clothing to get your teeth into."
      Notes: A mid-range clothes shop. Better than Binco but not as good as 
             the others.

  >>Victim
    ******
      Opens: 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.

  >>Didier Sachs
    ************
      Opens: After "Saint Mark's Bistro".
      Motto: "For those with discriminating taste."
      Notes: A high class and expensive clothes shop. The best of everything, 
             and the most respect, can be bought here. Of course, you'll also 
             spend the most money but prestige doesn't come cheap.

0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0

The following places will let you change certain aspects of your physical
appearance:

  >>Barber Shops
    ************
      This is where you can change hairstyles. You open up the Barber Shops 
      when you do the mission "Ryder". They are represented by a scissors 
      icon on your in-game map.

      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. You can also get rid of a Wanted Rating by 
      getting a haircut.

  >>Tattoo Parlors
    **************
      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 completion of the mission "Ryder". They are represented by a 
      "T" (Olde English Font) on your in-game map.

0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0
| D. Sex Appeal |~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\
0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+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). You can also greatly increase your Sex Appeal by collecting
all 50 Oysters found around San Andreas.

| E. Girlfriends |~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\
0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0

As noted above, a solid level of respect can help you get a Girlfriend if you
wish to have one. However, you will get two of them simply by playing through
the Main Story Missions.

But there are several more that can be found around San Andreas. Some of
them even allow you to gain special abilities (such as being able to keep
your weapons if you are Wasted or Busted).

And, according to Jordan Knupp, if you date a girlfriend on one game, then
the bonuses from the girlfriend carry over to the other games.

However, obtaining additional Girlfriends doesn't contribute to 100%
Completion so I am not going to cover them in this guide.

The main enemies in the Grand Theft Auto games 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 (I hate those bastards. They really take the fun out of car chases).

When you do something bad near a Cop, like mugging a person, then 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:

0===========================================================================0
| Hiding out somewhere for a bit (depending on what you've done, this will  |
| work for up to 4-Stars).                                                  |

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=====================================>

  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 then a nearby Cop may shoot at 
  you.

  When fleeing in a car there will be Motorcycle Cops that 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=====================================>

  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=====================================>

  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.

0=======0
| 4-Star \
0=====================================>

  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 sub-machine guns that 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 then 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.

0=======0
| 5-Star \
0=====================================>

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

0=======0
| 6-Star \
0=====================================>

  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.

  You can achieve this rating after the completion of the mission "Verdant 
  Meadows".

Like in the other Grand Theft Auto games, you can grab Police Vehicles and
use them in Vigilante Missions (explained later). And there are a lot of
Police Vehicles you can use for that purpose:

  >>Police Car
    **********
      Found: On the street and at all Police Stations only in the major 
             cities of San Andreas.
      Notes: You get five Shotgun shells when entering a Police car. If you 
             don't already have a Shotgun then you will acquire one with five 
             shells.

  >>HPV-1000 Police Motorcycle
    **************************
      Found: In the street only in the major cities of San Andreas.
      Notes: You can shoot forward when riding this motorcycle which can make 
             it easier to do the Vigilante Mission.

  >>Predator
    ********
      Found: In the water around San Andreas.

  >>SWAT Enforcer
    *************
      Found: During a 4-Star Wanted Rating.
      Notes: As a bonus, you can get Body Armor when entering a SWAT 
             Enforcer.

  >>Police Rancher
    **************
      Found: On the street only in the rural areas of San Andreas.
      Notes: You get five Shotgun shells when entering a Police Rancher. If 
             you don't already have a Shotgun then you will acquire one with 
             five shells.

  >>FBI Rancher
    ***********
      Found: During a 5-Star Wanted Rating.

  >>Barracks
    ********
      Found: During a 6-Star Wanted Rating.

  >>Rhino
    *****
      Found: During a 6-Star Wanted Rating - also unlocked at Restricted Area 
             (Desert) after completion of the mission "Verdant Meadows" or by 
             getting 100% Completion where one will spawn near the Johnson 
             residence in Ganton (Los Santos).

  >>Police Maverick
    ***************
      Found: On the roof of Los Santos Police HQ.
      Notes: Press the Look Behind Button to activate the searchlight. Thanks 
             to Nick Markovich for finding that.

  >>Hunter
    ******
      Found: Unlocked at the Verdant Meadows Aircraft Graveyard by getting 
             all Golds at the Flight School.

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

As noted earlier, you can drive a car or motorcycle, excluding Police and
rescue vehicles, into a Pay 'N' Spray to change the color of your vehicle, as
well as repair it, to get rid of Wanted Ratings at a cost of $100.

When you use the Pay 'N' Spray to get rid of your Wanted Ratings then the
Stars will flash for a short time. While they are flashing, you are then
considered to be on "probation". If you commit a crime, like running over
someone, while the Wanted Rating Stars are flashing, then your Wanted Rating
will be reinstated.

All Pay 'N' Sprays are open from the beginning of the game and are
represented by a green spray can on your in-game map.

According to reader Rahul Yadav, The Pay 'N' Spray Police Invisibility
Glitch, which I thought was exclusive to GTA IV, also works in San Andreas.
How it works is that if you enter a Pay 'N' Spray on foot during a Wanted
Rating then the Cops will walk away from you as though nothing ever happened. 

If you walk back out then they will attack again. Walk back in and they stop.
This can be useful when causing trouble or if you need to catch your breath.

            \=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=/

If you get a Wanted Rating and the Cops end up catching you then you are
Busted. Any mission you were doing at the time will be Failed.

When you are Busted then you are sent to the nearest Police Station where you
will be processed (which takes six game hours) and released. You also lose
all weapons and your Body Armor. In addition, you will be fined based on the
number of Wanted Rating Stars you have when you are Busted:

  >>1-Star: $100.
  >>2-Star: $200.
  >>3-Star: $400.
  >>4-Star: $600.
  >>5-Star: $900.
  >>6-Star: $1,500.

There are seven Police Stations in the San Andreas area where you may find
yourself if you are Busted by the Cops:

  >>Los Santos Police Department HQ (Los Santos).
  >>Dillimore Police Department (Red County).
  >>Angel Pine Sheriff's Office (Whetstone).
  >>San Fierro Police Station (San Fierro).
  >>El Quebrados Sheriff's Office (Tierra Robada).

If you do something to reduce your Health to zero, like being too close to an
explosion, or getting shot up a lot, then you will be Wasted. Any mission you
were doing at the time will be Failed.

When you are Wasted then you are sent to the nearest Hospital where you will
be treated (which takes six game hours), billed $100 and released. You also
lose all weapons and your Body Armor.

There are eight Hospitals in the San Andreas area where you may find yourself
if you are Wasted for any reason:

  >>All Saints General Hospital (Los Santos).
  >>County General (Los Santos).
  >>Crippen Memorial (Red County).

In most of the GTA games 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 the roadblocks would be removed.

Of course, they could be easily circumvented by a variety of exploits 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 implemented 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) then
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 is an
area on the west side of Los Santos Inlet and the area around the Aircraft
Carrier at San Fierro.

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
or over the Aircraft Carrier at San Fierro.

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 and frustrating
(but, if you're looking for a nice challenge, then this might fit the bill).

However, over time, methods to explore the Unwelcome Areas without
interference were discovered which leads me to.....

In earlier versions of the guide there were three exploits that allowed you
to go around all of San Andreas without Wanted Ratings.

The first one could be done during the mission "Reuniting The Families"
(discovered by The Chadness). The second exploit can be done during the
mission "The Da Nang Thang" (discovered by David Sears and Dr. Simon Chan).
There was also another mission that you could use to do early exploration,
"Are You Going To San Fierro?".

These exploits froze the Wanted Ratings so, at some point during these given
missions, you could leave and do unlimited exploring before completing the
mission at hand. I had felt that these were the only missions where you could
do early exploration with. I was wrong.

I received a letter from pdescobar who was inspired by this guide to go
around and find other missions where you could freeze the Wanted Ratings for
early exploration or general mischief. With the help of two other gamers, srg
and Mxyzptlk, they found quite a few missions where you could get the Wanted
Ratings frozen and listed them in a topic at GTAForums.com.

Although they listed many missions, I will focus only on those that allow for
easy early exploration (including those already listed in this guide):

  >>"Drive-By"
  >>"Los Sepulcros"
  >>"Reuniting the Families"
  >>"Are You Going to San Fierro?"
  >>"Mike Toreno"
  >>"Outrider"
  >>"Pier 69"
  >>"Amphibious Assault"
  >>"The Da Nang Thang"
  >>"Pier 69"

There are a few other missions where you can go and explore but they are
harder to take advantage of and I will leave those alone.

Some of these exploits, like the "Reuniting the Families" glitch, can leave
San Andreas a ghost town while others, like "The Da Nang Thang", will allow
you to kill pedestrians (for example) without generating Wanted Ratings.

These exploits are great for obtaining the Photo-Ops, Oysters, and Horseshoes
without interference and before the Badlands and Desert areas are officially
open. While there are some things you can do while exploring in an Unwelcome
Area, 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).

(I should point out that I had a reader tell me of some problems when he
entered and exited buildings when taking advantage of the Early Exploration
Exploit during the mission "Los Sepulcros").

Even if you don't wish to do a lot of things around San Andreas when taking
advantage of these exploits, there are some things I highly recommend you do.

Normally, you will get at least a 4-Star Wanted Rating by going near the
Easter Bay Naval Station in San Fierro. There are two Oysters ([SNF-Y26],
[SNF-Y27]), one Photo-Op ([ESB-P30]), and a Patriot that you will need to
acquire for later use.

With the Wanted Ratings disabled then you should go ahead and get these
things from the Easter Bay Naval Station so you don't have to fight for them
later on. Store the Patriot at the Xoomer Garage across the street west of
Cranberry Station.

I should note that trying to acquire the Photo-Ops, Oysters, and Horseshoes
will take a very long time to do in one sitting since you can't save in the
middle of the mission.

One option is to do some collecting and then fail the mission (easiest way is
to kill yourself). Then save your progress, do the mission again and
reactivate the exploit to continue exploring and collecting. When you are
finished exploring and doing the things you want to do then head back to the
mission you were in the middle of and finish it.

The missions listed above will have a small section called "Early Exploration
Exploit" which will show you how to take advantage of the exploits. In
addition, there are other missions late in the game where you can freeze the
Wanted Ratings:

  >>"You've Had Your Chips"
  >>"A Home in the Hills"
  >>"Los Desperados"
  >>"End of the Line"

The missions listed above will have a small section called "No Wanted Rating
Exploit" which will show you when they occur.

Below are some tips and additional information that will be of benefit to 
you:

  >>Crack Dealers
    *************
      Sometimes you will see a black man with a black shirt (or a white guy 
      with a gray jacket with hood) just standing on the sidewalk with his 
      arms crossed. He is a Crack Dealer. You can talk to him and give him 
      either a positive or negative response.

      However, when you see one, just run over him. When you kill a Crack 
      Dealer then he will drop a lot of money (about $2,000). A good way to 
      earn some fast cash.

  >>Bomb Shops
    **********
      Like in most GTA games, 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 in-game map for these places so you will have 
      to look around a bit.

      These Bomb Shops are listed in the Points of Interest chapter at the 
      beginning of each major section. Once a car is modified with a bomb 
      you prime it by using the Attack Button. Then sit back and watch the 
      fun.

If you've done everything prior to returning to Los Santos after completion

need to be done to acquire 100% Completion:

  >>Completion of the following Main Story Missions

Los Santos, based on Los Angeles, is where you will spend a lot of time in.
There is plenty to see and do here. Most of the rich people live in the
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.

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% 
Completion. Some of these properties have additional features, like garages.
All Safehouses have closets where you keep all of the clothes you acquire
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 in-game map). Other properties won't be
accessible until later in the game (they will show red on your map). Others
you will earn outright by progressing through the game.

Listed in this chapter are the Safehouses you can acquire in the Los Santos
and Red County area. The list is broken down by area. The Map co-ordinates
refer to the printed map that comes included with the game disc:

In this chapter I go over information on the Weapons, Special Items, Body
Armor, and Police Bribes that can be found and bought in San Andreas. But,
first, I will start with.....

0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=0=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0
| A. Weapon Skill and Easy Upgrading |~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\
0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=0=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0

Most of the weapons listed in this chapter have skills that can be upgraded.
When you first pick up a upgradable weapon you will notice that 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 then you will have reached the
weapon's maximum skill. When Hitman Weapon Skill Level is reached on certain
weapons then 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 View Stats 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 then 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:

Get a car and place it into a garage (preferably the one at your Safehouse in
Mulholland - you won't get harassed this way). 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 re-open,
then your car will be as good as new. Repeat the process until you have
achieved Hitman Weapon Skill Level on your chosen weapon.

Although you can use the Shoot-The-Tire Trick on both of the PS2 versions, I
found that you can really speed up the upgrading and use a lot less ammo by
doing it this way.

Then there's this option that was suggested to me by Sean McCafferty:

  "I've found that the lights and cardboard boxes at Emmet's place will 
   regenerate if you drive down the street to Denise's house and return. So 
   I've been able to get most of my weapons up to Hitman pretty easily by 
   just getting on a bike, riding to Denise's and back and shooting all the 
   same lights and boxes all over again. Since it's a quiet area, it's good 
   because Cops don't bother you while you're shooting the place up."

There's also this option by Victor Anni:

  "Next get at least 300 ammo for your weapon of choice. Go to the front of 
   one of your safe houses preferably Jefferson or Willowfield. Kill a Cop 
   and keep killing them until the SWAT guys start dropping from the 
   helicopter or when your health is low. Duck into your safe house save and 
   come back out and repeat. Saving helps you get rid of wanted levels and 
   restores your health. Shooting the Cops also has the effect of increasing 
   your respect level (you could even max it out). I used this strategy at 
   the Willowfield safe house to level my silenced pistol, shotgun and 
   sawn-off shotgun to hitman levels within the space of an hour and a half 
   (maybe less wasn't really timing)."

0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=0=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0

Weapons are the tools of the trade for any professional criminal regardless
of sophistication (or lack thereof). There are thirty two 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 of weapon at a time so you are
limited to a maximum of nine weapons.

But there are other items you can pick up that 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 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 the mission "Doberman". More weapons will be available for
purchase at Ammu-Nation as you progress through the game.

Here is the list of Ammu-Nations in San Andreas:

  >>Downtown Los Santos (Los Santos).
  >>Willowfield (Los Santos).
  >>Blueberry (Red County).
  >>Palomino Creek (Red County).
  >>Angel Pine (Badlands).
  >>Ocean Flats (San Fierro).
  >>El Quebrados (Tierra Robada).
  >>Fort Carson (Bone County).
  >>Bone County (Desert).
  >>Come-A-Lot (Las Venturas).
  >>Old Venturas Strip (Las Venturas).
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
  **NOTE: Not all Ammu-Nations charge the same for a weapon. The Bone County,
          Come-A-Lot, and Old Venturas Strip Ammu-Nations charge more than 
          the others.

In addition, you can do the Ammu-Nation Challenge at most Ammu-Nations but I
will save that for after opening up the Desert / Las Venturas area.

The descriptions of the weapons and items are listed here and their locations
are listed in each major section of the guide. The information on each weapon
and item is broken down as follows (if applicable):

  --Appears after: This tells you what mission you have to complete before 
                   this weapon can be bought from Ammu-Nation.
  --Cost: How much the weapon costs at Ammu-Nation.
  --Notes: Information on the weapon or item.

0==============0
| Slot 1 - Fist \
0===============================================>

  Good for hands-on fisticuffs but you can increase your damage potential by 
  acquiring the Brass Knuckles which can be found in various places around 
  San Andreas.

0=======================0
| Slot 2 - Melee Weapons \
0===============================================>

  These weapons are used for pounding, stabbing, and slicing your enemies. 
  Most of these weapons you can run with, some you can't. There are quite a 
  lot of choices for the discriminating thugger.....

    >>Baseball Bat
      ************
        Great for batting practice (on somebody's head) or breaking kneecaps. 
        There are no Baseball Bat Weapon Icons in Los Santos but you can get 
        one from a angry pedestrian if he happens to be wielding one.

    >>Nightstick
      **********
        This can be acquired from a dead Cop since he won't be needing it 
        anyway (or the locker room of most of the Police Stations). Great for 
        when you want to enforce your own brand of law. Can't we all just get 
        along?......

    >>Golf Club
      *********
        You can improve your swing and work somebody over at the same 
        time.....

    >>Shovel
      ******
        Good for digging up secrets and burying bodies.....

    >>Knife
      *****
        A simple effective hand-held weapon. Can be used for stealth kills. 
        Get behind someone, Target them and then use the Attack button to 
        perform a stealth kill.

    >>Pool Stick
      **********
        When you want to "cue" up some mayhem.....

    >>Katana
      ******
        Not as effective as it was in Vice City but still a nice melee weapon 
        to have.

    >>Chainsaw
      ********
        Be careful using this weapon because you can't run while using it, 
        unlike what you can with the other Melee Weapons, so you are 
        vulnerable to being attacked or busted. Therefore, it has limited 
        strategic potential. Good for some sick thrills though.....

0==================0
| Slot 3 - Handguns \
0===============================================>

  There are three Handguns that can be found in the game. These guns have 
  Weapon Skills that can be upgraded. You can also run when holding a 
  Handgun. All three Handguns listed here all use different types of ammo so 
  you will lose the ammo for one type of Handgun if you switch to another.

    >>9mm Pistol
      **********
        Appears after: "Doberman".
        Cost:
             ++$200 - Most Ammu-Nations.
             ++$240 - Bone County / Las Venturas Ammu-Nations.
        Notes: A decent handgun that can be bought or acquired from dead 
               Cops. When Hitman Weapon Skill Level is reached then you can 
               dual-wield them. Also, you can run with this weapon while 
               firing it. In addition, you can use this weapon with the 
               Jetpack.

    >>Silenced 9mm Pistol
      *******************
        Appears after: "House Party".
        Cost:
             ++$600 - Most Ammu-Nations.
             ++$720 - Bone County / Las Venturas Ammu-Nations.
        Notes: A better version of the 9mm Pistol. More powerful and silent 
               too. But you have to stand still while firing it.

    >>Desert Eagle
      ************
        Appears after: "Black Project".
        Cost:
             ++$1,200 - Most Ammu-Nations.
             ++$1,440 - Bone County / Las Venturas Ammu-Nations.
        Notes: The best handgun in the game. You have to stand still while 
               firing this gun but, if you are quick with your targeting, 
               then you can still make fast work of a group of gunmen with 
               little damage.

0==================0
| Slot 4 - Shotguns \
0===============================================>

  The three Shotguns listed here have Weapon Skills that can be upgraded. All 
  of the Shotguns use the same ammo so you can actually increase your Shotgun 
  ammo when switching from one type of Shotgun to another.

    >>Shotgun
      *******
        Appears after: "Doberman".
        Cost:
             ++$600 - Most Ammu-Nations.
             ++$720 - Bone County / Las Venturas Ammu-Nations.
        Notes: Just a standard pump action single barreled shotgun. Slow on 
               the fire rate but still effective.

    >>Sawn-Off Shotgun
      ****************
        Appears after: "House Party".
        Cost:
             ++$800 - Most Ammu-Nations.
             ++$960 - Bone County / Las Venturas Ammu-Nations.
        Notes: This Shotgun has had the barrels sawn off to make it easier to 
               conceal. However, this greatly reduces its range. Also, this 
               is the only Shotgun you can run with while holding it. When 
               Hitman Weapon Skill Level is reached then you can dual-wield 
               them.

    >>Combat Shotgun
      **************
        Appears after: "Don Peyote".
        Cost:
             ++$1,000 - Most Ammu-Nations.
             ++$1,200 - Bone County / Las Venturas Ammu-Nations.
        Notes: This cool looking rapid fire shotgun is the best shotgun in 
               the game.

0==========================0
| Slot 5 - Sub-Machine Guns \
0===============================================>

  These lightweight weapons can take down anyone very quickly. These are the 
  only weapons that can be used while in a car or on a motorcycle. In 
  addition, these Weapons have Weapon Skills that can be upgraded. You can 
  run while holding any of the Sub-Machine Guns.

  All of the Sub-Machine Guns use the same ammo so you can actually increase 
  your Sub-Machine Gun ammo when switching from one type of Sub-Machine Gun 
  to another.

    >>Tec-9
      *****
        Appears after: "Doberman".
        Cost:
             ++$300 - Most Ammu-Nations.
             ++$360 - Bone County / Las Venturas Ammu-Nations.
        Notes: This has the largest magazine of this group but is less 
               accurate and has a slower rate of fire. When Hitman Weapon 
               Skill Level is reached then you can dual-wield Tec-9's. You 
               can also fire this weapon while moving. In addition, you can 
               use this weapon with the Jetpack.

    >>Micro SMG
      *********
        Appears after: "Doberman".
        Cost:
             ++$500 - Most Ammu-Nations.
             ++$600 - Bone County / Las Venturas Ammu-Nations.
        Notes: One of the better guns here as it has a good rate of fire and 
               accuracy. It also has a slightly faster reload than the other 
               guns. When Hitman Weapon Skill Level is reached then you can 
               dual-wield them. You can also fire this weapon while moving. 
               In addition, you can use this weapon with the Jetpack.

    >>SMG
      ***
        Appears after: "House Party".
        Cost:
             ++$2,000 - Most Ammu-Nations.
             ++$2,400 - Bone County / Las Venturas Ammu-Nations.
        Notes: The best Sub-Machine Gun in the group. Has a high rate of 
               accuracy and fire making it perfect for drive-bys. This is the 
               only Sub-Machine Gun that you can't duel-wield at Hitman 
               Weapon Skill Level (you have to stand still while firing it) 
               but that doesn't make you any less dangerous.....

0========================0
| Slot 6 - Assault Rifles \
0===============================================>

  These weapons are very good for getting rid of a crowd. These Weapons have 
  Weapon Skills that can be upgraded. You cannot run with these weapons while 
  holding one. In addition, they also use the same bullets so you can 
  increase your ammo by switching assault rifles.

    >>AK-47
      *****
        Appears after: "Lure".
        Cost:
             ++$3,500 - Most Ammu-Nations.
             ++$4,200 - Bone County / Las Venturas Ammu-Nations.
        Notes: A nice solid Assault Rifle that has been around a long time 
               and is also easy to acquire on the streets.

    >>M4
      **
        Appears after: "Yay Ka-Boom-Boom".
        Cost:
             ++$4,500 - Most Ammu-Nations.
             ++$5,400 - Bone County / Las Venturas Ammu-Nations.
        Notes: This Weapon has a very fast rate of fire and is generally 
               better than the AK-47. Perfect for most missions and territory 
               acquisition.

0================0
| Slot 7 - Rifles \
0===============================================>

  The Rifles listed below have no Weapon Skills to upgrade. Plus you cannot 
  run with these weapons while holding one.

    >>Rifle
      *****
        Appears after: "Body Harvest".
        Cost:
             ++$1,000 - Most Ammu-Nations.
             ++$1,200 - Bone County / Las Venturas Ammu-Nations.
        Notes: Good for taking down varmints like rival gang members and 
               Cops.....

    >>Sniper Rifle
      ************
        Appears after: "Pier 69".
        Cost:
             ++$5,000 - Most Ammu-Nations.
             ++$6,000 - Bone County / Las Venturas Ammu-Nations.
        Notes: This high powered, long distance weapon is very good for 
               taking down people and to explore the surroundings with 
               because of its view-scope. You can even crouch with this 
               weapon making your sight more steady.

0=======================0
| Slot 8 - Heavy Weapons \
0===============================================>

  These are some of the most powerful weapons in the game. However, you 
  cannot run while holding them thus making you an easy target for law 
  enforcement. Plus you can't crouch either. These Weapons have no Weapon 
  Skills to upgrade.

    >>RPG
      ***
        A standard issue RPG. Hold down the Target button to properly aim the 
        weapon and press Attack to launch.

    >>Heat-Seeking RPG
      ****************
        Better than your standard RPG because the rockets will follow any 
        heat source coming from a vehicle. Target your victim until the 
        reticle turns from green to red then press Attack to frag him.

    >>Flamethrower
      ************
        If you can't stand the heat then get the hell away from CJ.....

    >>Mini-Gun
      ********
        This powerful handheld Gatling Gun (a holdover from Vice City) is 
        made better because of the improved aiming system. You can shred 
        anything in seconds with this puppy!

0============================0
| Slot 9 - Projectile Weapons \
0===============================================>

  These weapons are meant to be thrown at your targets. The longer you hold 
  the Attack button, the farther you throw. You can run with these weapons 
  while holding them. These Weapons have no Weapon Skills to upgrade.

    >>Grenades
      ********
        Appears after: "Doberman".
        Cost:
             ++$300 - Most Ammu-Nations.
             ++$360 - Bone County / Las Venturas Ammu-Nations.
        Notes: Toss one of these and watch the crowds scatter (in more ways 
               than one).....

    >>Tear Gas
      ********
        This weapon is much better implemented in San Andreas than was in 
        Vice City. Better still, CJ is unaffected by the Tear Gas cloud. 
        Bonus! Outside of a kick to the groin this is probably the best way 
        to make a grown man cry......

    >>Molotovs
      ********
        Can be used to flambe' your enemies and yourself if you're too 
        careless in where you throw one. Best used when you acquire the 
        Fireproof Feature (by doing the Fire Truck Mission) to keep yourself 
        cool when everybody else is not.....

    >>Remote Explosives
      *****************
        Appears after: "Body Harvest".
        Cost:
             ++$2,000 - Most Ammu-Nations.
             ++$2,400 - Bone County / Las Venturas Ammu-Nations.
        Notes: This is basically a sticky grenade that you can attach to 
               buildings, vehicles and even people. Then switch to the 
               Detonator (it has its own slot when the Remote Explosives is 
               used) to detonate. Lots of fun can be had with this weapon.

  These items listed here have multiple uses.

    >>Spray Can
      *********
        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 eco-friendly.....

    >>Camera
      ******
        This is used mainly for the San Fierro Photo-Ops done later in the 
        game. But you can recruit gang members with it and they will even 
        take your picture when you give them the Camera.

    >>Fire Extinguisher
      *****************
        This is used to put out fires, of course. Aim at the base of the 
        flame and press Attack put it out. It can also be used as an 
        effective Tear Gas-like weapon to stun (and kill) enemies and bash 
        them with the unit itself when you get close enough.

| Slot 11 - Gifts \
0===============================================>

  These items are used for dating Girlfriends. Strangely enough, you can also 
  use these items as weapons.....

    >>Flowers
      *******
        For when you want to play nice and sweet you can't go wrong with 
        flowers.

        It is important to note that, once you take them from a location, 
        that they will *NOT* re-spawn so be careful when acquiring them. 
        Although, according to Dan Stephen, they are able to re-spawn in the 
        PC version so the PS2 version may have a bug that causes them not to 
        re-spawn when one is picked up.

    >>Double-Ended Dildo
      ******************
        For when you're feeling horny and you don't want to beat around the 
        bush about it (so to speak).....

    >>Cane
      ****
        For some strange reason this particular item is a gift instead of a 
        plain melee weapon.

        Reader Kevin Brown said "but my idea is it's like a show off thing 
        you know like pimps carry canes." Considering that there is a Pimping 
        Mission in this game this explanation makes sense.

    >>Vibrator
      ********
        Great for massaging those "special areas".....

0========================0
| Slot 12 - Apparel Items \
0===============================================>

  These items need to be worn to be used. Some of these items won't appear 
  until after the missions in which they are used.

    >>Parachute
      *********
        When you need to bail from a plane or drop in on some unwanted guests 
        then you'll need one of these. Press Attack to pull the ripcord and 
        hope it works.....

    >>Thermal Goggles
      ***************
        These goggles allow you to see the heat signature of objects, 
        especially bodies. According to Malcrasternus, who posted this little 
        find on the GameFAQs Message Boards, you can use these goggles to 
        locate the San Fierro Photo-Ops regardless of the time of day.

        To use them, switch to them and press Attack. To turn them off, 
        switch back to them (you can have them on while using other items) 
        and press Attack again.

        It is important to note that, once you take them from a location, 
        that they will *NOT* re-spawn so be careful when acquiring them.

    >>Night Vision Goggles
      ********************
        These goggles intensify faint light and allow you to see in the dark. 
        You can also use these to find the San Fierro Photo-Ops regardless of 
        the time of day. These goggles may actually be better than the 
        Thermal Goggles for finding the Photo-Ops - you can see your 
        surroundings better.

        To use them, switch to them and press Attack. To turn them off, 
        switch back to them (you can have them on while using other items) 
        and press Attack again.

        It is important to note that, once you take them from a location, 
        that they will *NOT* re-spawn so be careful when acquiring them.

But Weapon Icons aren't the only things you will find scattered around San
Andreas. You will also find these other icons that you can use to help you
out:

  >>Body Armor
    **********
      This armor-shaped icon will increase your armor rating to its maximum 
      of 100 (the number can be seen in the Stats). When you complete Level 
      12 of the Vigilante Mission then your maximum will increase to 150. You 
      can buy Body Armor from Ammu-Nation after completion of the mission 
      "Doberman" for $200 (most Ammu-Nations - $240 from the Bone County / 
      Las Venturas Ammu-Nations).

  >>Police Bribe
    ************
      These star-shaped icons will drop your Wanted Rating by one star when 
      picked up. It is best to know where all the bribe icons are located 
      before doing any missions so you can quickly deal with any law 
      enforcement pursuit.

There are many places in the Los Santos and Red County area where you can get
food to replenish your health, to stop your hunger or to get fat.

All of the fast food restaurants (Well Stacked Pizza, Cluckin' Bell and
Burger Shot) will be active and appear on your in-game map after completion
of the mission "Ryder".
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  **NOTE: The icon for the Cluckin' Bell in Market (Los Santos) does *NOT* 
          appear on the in-game map (and even on the printed map) for the AO 
          Versions. It has been fixed for the Second Edition versions.

          In addition, there is a Well Stacked Pizza in Montgomery (Red 
          County) that does not have an icon on the in-game map regardless of 
          version.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
However, there are other food places that do not appear on the in-game map
that can be accessed at any time from the beginning of the game:

  >>Snack Machines
    **************
      These are silver colored machines that provide snack food (for $1) and 
      are open at the beginning of the game.

  >>Sprunk Machines
    ***************
      These are green colored machines that provide soda (for $1) and are 
      open at the beginning of the game. There are a couple of red colored 
      ECola Machines in San Fierro but behave the same.

  >>24-7
    ****
      These are convenience stores that contain both Snack Machines and 
      Sprunk Machines (as well as arcade games). They do *NOT* appear on the 
      in-game map although they are open from the beginning. There is one 
      24-7 in Mulholland (Los Santos) that doesn't have any machines so is 
      not listed.

  >>Food Stands
    ***********
      These are small individual food stands that offer food for $1.

  >>Hot Dog Vans
    ************
      These are vans that often appear in rural areas that offer food for $1. 
      However, they may not appear when you get to where they are usually at 
      so you may have to make another pass to make them appear.

With that explained, let's go over the.....

                corner of this intersection is a large white apartment 
                building. Just south of here are two large planters. The 
                Bribe can be found between these two planters.

                  left at the next corner.

                  intersection. You should see what appears to be a guard 
                  shack at the north corner of this intersection.

                  Head northeast past this shack and past the rows of kegs. 
                  Then angle east so you can go alongside the north side of 
                  the brewery. Ahead of you should be a door and way above it 
                  is the FleischBerg sign. Just as you get to the door then 
                  look right to find the weapon in the corner.

                Just southeast of your position there should be another guard 
                shack. Head southeast past this second shack and you should 
                see a large trailer with a red stripe to your left. Once you 
                get past this trailer then head straight east and you should 
                see a single trailer with a blue stripe ahead of you. Go past 
                it to find a curved ramp leading up.

                When you get to the top of this ramp then you should be in 
                the parking area for the brewery. From here, go northeast and 
                under the nearby archway then turn west at the corner. The

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 leaving Carl with only $350.
The Ballas are rivals of the Grove Street Families, the gang that Carl used
to be affiliated with, and he has to get himself out of there pronto.

All Carl has in front of him is a bicycle and thus the story begins.....

Although you are alerted to this mission at the end of the mission "Home
Invasion", you can actually do this task at the very beginning of the game
(thanks goes to Derrick for this bit of information).

In this mission you go from house to house and steal items from them. You
have to get the Boxville which is parked at the apartment complex south
of the Los Santos Gym. Then press Activate Vehicle Mission (after 20:00) to
start and you have until 06:00 to complete it.

After 06:00 you can no longer rob houses but you are given a five minute
timer to head to the lock-up so you can get paid (thanks to Alky Alky2 for
that wonderful bit of information). You have to get a minimum of $10,000
worth of stuff in order to successfully complete the mission.

Although it is very easy to get that and more, in one night, reader Richard
Julian states you don't have to do it all at one time. You can do some in one
night and more in another night. But you still have to get a total of
$10,000 to successfully finish off this mission.

In Los Santos your drop-off point is LB's garage in Willowfield just north of
the Playa Del Seville Barber Shop. The best place to do this mission is on
the very short street west of the drop-off point. Get there before 20:00 and
the moment the clock says 20:00 press Activate Vehicle Mission. This will
maximize the time you have to complete the mission.

The basics of the mission are as follows:

Go inside a house that has a yellow arrow in front of it. When you get inside
you can acquire up to three objects within. There is usually two in the
living room and one in the bedroom. You have to be stealthy when inside a
house and creep around in order to keep the Noise Meter from maxing out.

If you max out the Noise Meter then you will be detected and you will have
ten seconds before the Cops arrive and you will be hit with a 3-Star Wanted
Rating if you don't get out in time. But, after you get back outside, then
the countdown disappears and you can re-enter the house.

You can also kill the occupant of the house so you can rummage through the
place without interference. However, if you go to another house and back to
the first one, then the occupant will be "revived".

Once outside with the item then drop it off in the back of the truck. Then go
back inside the same house, grab another item, and get out. Then go and rob
another house, preferably one close by.

Reader Skipp Kennedy found a way to streamline this process:

Find two houses that have arrows on their doorsteps preferably across the
street from each other. Better still if they happen to be at the signal light
which is as close as possible to the drop-off point. Enter the first house,
run and grab an item in the living room, then run back out. You will max out
the Noise Meter but you will be long gone before the counter runs out.

Once back outside then drop the item in the back of the truck. Then run into
the second house and do what you did in the first. After dropping off the
item in the back of the truck then run back into the frist house. When you
entered the second house then whatever you stole from the first house will be
regenerated so you can steal the same item again. And when you re-enter the
first house then you will regenerate what you stole from the second.

Just keep going back and forth between the two houses until the timer runs
out. If there is somebody in the living room of either house just ignore that
person and quickly grab the item and run out.

When the Daylight Timer runs out then you will be given another five minute
timer to get to the lock-up so you can successfully complete this mission.
After you get to the lock-up then you will be paid for the items you have
stolen plus $3,000 for successful completion. You can earn at least $30,000
in one night if you do things correctly.

However, I found that on the PC version the game tends to generate less
houses to rob so you may have to look around for a bit to find two close
together. Thankfully, the blue apartment buildings close to the drop-off tend
to have two close together so you may not need to go far.

Although this mission doesn't contribute toward 100% Completion, there is
something you earn that can be very useful and is not documented within the
game but works on all versions of San Andreas (I confirmed this on all of my
PS2, Xbox, and PC versions).

According to Glen T. Winstein, with help from Mxyzptlk and Craig Kostelecky,
you earn the Infinite Stamina Feature. This means that you can run and sprint
without ever getting tired. This is also why I put this near the beginning.
Having Infinite Stamina can be extremely useful. However, you can still earn
Stamina on your Stamina Stat but it is now irrelevant.

I should point out the on the PC AO Version it may be possible to trigger the
Off-Map Glitch by doing this mission (info courtesy of Odhita Kamayana).

After completion of this mission then I go up to Jefferson and purchase the
Jefferson Safehouse. And, with my remaining money, I head to my next
objective.....

Under the raised freeway and just south of the parking lot under the
Mulholland Intersection is the Inside Track Betting parlor. Here you can win
a lot of money by betting on the horses.

Go inside and walk up to the ITB Machine to place your bet. 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 then go
back to the Jefferson Safehouse and save your game. Then go back here to win
more money. If you lose then 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 I had over ten million or
over a hundred million then I went ahead and purchased the remaining
available Safehouses.

In the later stages of the game you will need to collect cars for the Import
/ Export Car Lists to get to 100% Completion. Many of the cars can be easily
found. But some of the cars are not so easy to find. Now that I have bought
all of the available Safehouses I have four garages to store cars in.

Below is the list of vehicles you may want to look out for in your early
travels in Los Santos:

  >>Feltzer (convertible)
  >>Cheetah (Ferrari Testarossa)
  >>Stallion (late 70s Ford Mustang)
  >>Freeway (Harley-Davidson style bike)

Although you can store more than one vehicle in a garage, I try to put just
one car in any garage. This will reduce, but sadly not eliminate, the
infamous Car Eating Garage Glitch that has plagued all of the GTA games.

The next thing one can do here is to start collecting Oysters which are
spread throughout the San Andreas area (but always in the water). There are
fifty of them to acquire and it is required for 100% Completion.

You can go swimming around the Unwelcome Areas (without touching land) safely
to acquire a lot of the Oysters. You can also max out your Health and Lung
Capacity along the way (and increase your Sex Appeal). However, there are
faster ways to get both done but it is not a bad way to do some early
exploration of San Andreas.

The fastest way to acquire all of the Oysters is to use a speedboat and
collect them either using an Early Exploration Exploit or by waiting until
all of San Andreas is open.

You will get $100 for each Oyster you collect and $100,000 (plus maxing out
your Lung Capacity Stat) for acquiring all fifty of them. Listed below are
the Oysters for Los Santos and Red County. The Map co-ordinates refer to the

In Los Santos there are 100 Graffiti Tags that must be spray-painted over
with the Grove Street Families tag. You're supposed to do this after
completion of the mission "Tagging Up Turf" but you can do them all before
doing the Main Story Missions by using the Spray Cans that you can find in
Las Colinas and Ganton.

When doing the "Tagging Up Turf" mission the six tags you covered up
beforehand 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 the mission.

One option is to wait until the mission "Tagging Up Turf" to take advantage
of the unlimited Spray Can "ammo" during the mission and do all of it then.

Another little tip is to try to get them at night since they tend to be
brighter when the sun is down (making them easier to see) and blend into the
walls during the daytime (making them harder to see).

When you find a Tag to spray paint you use Target to aim and use 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 all 100 Tags are finished then your Respect will increase and the
following Weapon Icons will spawn in the kitchen of The Johnson House:

  >>AK-47
  >>Tec-9
  >>Sawn-Off Shotgun
  >>Molotov

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

Listed below, by neighborhood, is the Graffiti Tag list for Los Santos. The
Graffiti Tag List is broken up by neighborhood. There are twenty six
neighborhoods that have Tags in them. In addition, I've included a breakdown
of Tags in each area.

Because of the high number of Tags it is best to go to a neighborhood and
focus on acquiring all of them in that area before moving onto the next one.
That should make things easier to deal with.

The Map co-ordinates refer to the printed map that comes included with the
game disc. Landmarks are based off of icons on the in-game map (at this stage
of the game) and easily notable land or city features.

In addition, because the Graffiti Tags are harder to find than most other
collectibles (because they are not in an open area spinning in place) I have
done what I call "chaining".

In some neighborhoods there are not many good landmarks to start off from and
some Tags are close together. So, when I find a Tag, then I use it as a
landmark to the next Tag and to the next Tag and so on thus chaining several
together.

[LCA-T34] - Location: In an alley between two houses.
            Map: (E-6).
            Directions: From the Jefferson Safehouse, head west to the 
                        three-way intersection then turn right and go north 
                        all the way and stop at the three-way intersection 
                        where this road ends.

                        At the northwest corner of this intersection you 
                        should see a orange house with a light blue house 
                        next door east of it. There is an alley between these 
                        two houses. Go north into this alley and you should 
                        see the Tag on the blue wall to your right.

                        that is part of this angled pathway.

[LCA-T36] - Location: In an alley between two houses.
            Map: (E-6).
            Directions: From Tag [LCA-T35], go back to and past Tag [LCA-T34] 
                        to the three-way intersection then head west and turn 
                        north at the next four-way intersection. At this 
                        point you should start going up a hill and curving 
                        east. Look to your right and you should see some 
                        houses.

                        Look for a orange house with a brick red overhang. 
                        Next door to the east should be a light blue house.
                        There is an alley between these two houses. The Tag 
                        can be found in this alley on the blue wall to your

                        continue east along the road.

                        As you proceed along the street then you should see a 
                        large beige house with an sharply angled brick red 
                        rooftop to your left. There is also a set of stairs 
                        on the east side of this house where there is a 
                        parking lot made out of red bricks. The Tag can be 
                        found behind this house.

[LCA-T38] - Location: Just inside the train tunnel.
            Map: (E-6).
            Directions: From Tag [LCA-T37], head back to the road and head 
                        east. On the right side of the road you will see some 
                        homes.

                        Continue forward and the homes will end and a long 
                        guardrail will begin. The last home before the 
                        guardrail begins will be colored green. On the west 
                        side of this house is a narrow alley. Go south 
                        through this alley (where you will find a Police 
                        Bribe) and all the way down to the street.

                        You should now be at the north side of a three-way 
                        intersection. To the east is the railroad tracks. Go 
                        to the tracks then turn left to find the train 
                        tunnel. The Tag can be found to your left just inside 
                        the entrance.

            Map: (E-6).
            Directions: From Tag [LCA-T38], head back to the road and head 
                        east then turn left at the double intersection next 
                        to the tracks. Follow the road and it will curve to 
                        the east and head up the hill.

                        Head all the way to the three-way intersection where 
                        this road ends then turn right and stop at the next 
                        intersection. This is a very unusual intersection 
                        with two three-way intersections including one with a 
                        large road.

                        Go to the southwest corner of this intersection (with 
                        the large road). Near this corner should be a light 
                        blue house. Next door north of this house is a light 
                        orange house. Go between these two houses to find the 
                        Tag on the wall of the orange house.

                        Bribe).

                        As you get to the bottom of the hill then you should 
                        see a large blue and white apartment building to your 
                        right. There is also an entryway up into the 
                        building's entrance at the bottom of the hill. Go 
                        south into the entryway and angle right past the 
                        pillar. The Tag should be on the wall ahead of you.

                        west of it is a white building for Wholesale Produce.

                        Next door to the west of Wholesale Produce is a tan 
                        building with fire escapes (Security Storage). The 
                        Tag can be found on the wire window under the first 
                        set of fire escapes.

                        at the double intersection ahead.

                        At the northeast corner of this intersection is the 
                        Alhambra Club. The Tag can be found on the wall near 
                        the northwest corner of the building (just north of 
                        the entrance).

[IDW-T92] - Location: In the corner of an apartment building.
            Map: (E-5).
            Directions: From Tag [IDW-T91], head north and jump the hedge to 
                        get back to the street (you should be at the 
                        southeast corner of a four-way intersection).

                        From here, head east to the next road curve (going 
                        south). However, instead of taking the curve, angle 
                        northeast through a gap in the fence to enter an area 
                        with several apartment buildings.

                        As you proceed northeast through this new area then 
                        you should run into a building with four garage 
                        doors. The Tag can be found in the north corner of 
                        this building.

            Directions: From Tag [IDW-T92], head north then turn right at the 
                        corner and proceed southeast. As you continue through 
                        this apartment area then you will eventually get back 
                        to the street.

                        When you get back to the street then head east and 
                        stop at the next three-way intersection. At the north 
                        side of this intersection is the freeway ramp.

                        At the northeast corner of this intersection are some 
                        dumpy apartments. Head forward to the next three-way 
                        intersection directly south of these apartments. From 
                        that intersection, head north through the center and 
                        you should find the Tag in the northeast corner of 
                        the small courtyard.

            Map: (E-6).
            Directions: From Tag [IDW-T93], go south back to the three-way 
                        intersection. Just off to the east of this 
                        intersection is a bridge. The Tag can be found on the 
                        side of this bridge just southeast of this 
                        intersection.

                      Motel.
            Map: (E-6).
            Directions: From Tag [IDW-T96], head south back to the street 
                        then head east to the three-way intersection and turn 
                        right. Then turn left at the next major intersection 
                        (where three roads meet).

                        Head forward and stop at the road curve that goes 
                        north. On the outside part of this curve is the 
                        parking lot for the 24-Hour Motel. Turn right to go 
                        into the parking lot then turn right at the corner. 
                        Ahead of you should be a set of stairs. The Tag 
                        should be on the wall to your right.

[IDW-T98] - Location: On the side of a tunnel support.
            Map: (E-5).
            Directions: From the entrance of the Idlewood Pay 'N' Spray, head 
                        directly east across the street and down the ramp 
                        into the flood control channel. When you get down 
                        into the channel then do a U-turn and head west under 
                        the bridge.

                        Just before you get to the next bridge then you will 
                        see this channel merge with another one. Continue 
                        east, under the bridge and stop when you get near the 
                        next tunnel. At the beginning of the tunnel, in the 
                        middle, is a concrete tunnel support. Go to the north 
                        side of this support to find the Tag.

                         this intersection is a white house.

                         At the south side of this house is an alley. Head 
                         west through this alley to find a Police Bribe Icon 
                         at the junction. Just northwest of this point is a 
                         chain-link fence.

                         Go west along this chain-link fence until it ends at 
                         a blue wall. The Tag can be found near where the 
                         blue wall and the chain-link fence meet.

At the southwest part of Commerce is the Commerce 24-7 (just west of City
Hall). In front of the 24-7 is a 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 it then 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
then you have to go back to the Commerce 24-7 to finish it.

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 will gain a Money Icon outside the 24-7 that will
generate maximum revenue of $2,000 per day. And you will also inch closer
toward 100% Completion.

To the west of County Hospital in Jefferson is the 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 nineteen 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.

To successfully do this Challenge you must have a high Cycling Skill. This
will enable you to Bunny Hop really high and go backwards without falling
off. You can go and do other things like doing Graffiti Tags and Weapon
Collection while building up your Cycling Skill.

It is recommended that you max out your Cycling Skill before trying this
Challenge. 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 then get onto
the other bike to start the challenge.

When you start the challenge you will start with 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.

If you are having trouble getting the coronas on the half-pipes then reader
Philip Carstens has this advice:

  "Go to Ocean Docks and get yourself a Packer (the truck with the tracks on 
   the trailer) and drive to the Skate park with the Packer. Once there go to 
   the half pipe in the north-western corner (the corona is on the flat top 
   of the half pipe). Park the Packer on the south-eastern side with the 
   front of the packer facing towards the flat top (north). Using the side 
   view make sure the truck is not to close to the half pipe otherwise you 
   might end up crashing into the half pipe with the BMX. If parked correctly 
   the corona almost becomes the easiest one to get. With a moderate speed go 
   up the tracks of the Packer and bunny hop to the flat top, if you go to 
   fast you will end up on the road behind the skate park. If you don't 
   succeed the first time you can go back to the hill and activate the 
   challenge again and the Packer will still be there a second time around."

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

Another thing that can be done here in the Los Santos and Red County area is
to do the Vigilante Mission. While there are several kinds of Police vehicles
I can use here, the best one to use is the Cop Motorcycle. It is also
recommended that you max out the SMG Weapon Skill Level and have about 2,000
rounds.

The rules for the Vigilante Mission are as follows:

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, then 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).

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). However, the vehicle will auto repair itself to a certain
level after the completion of each level (at least that is what I saw on the
PC version).

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 then you will be rewarded with a permanent increase
in your armor (going up to 150 maximum).

At this point of the game 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 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 some 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 complete level 12 of the Vigilante Mission then you will increase
your maximum Body Armor from 100 to 150 and inch closer to 100% Completion.

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, re-enter 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.

However, if you're willing to wait until much later in the game, then you can
earn the Hunter attack helicopter by getting all Golds in the Flight School
or by stashing the Hunter in the hangar at Verdant Meadows Aircraft Graveyard
during the race "Heli Hell". It is much easier, and more fun, to use the
Hunter to complete the Vigilante Mission.

At the Los Santos Forum there is a Stadium Event known as 8-Track. You need
to have about 10% Driving Skill before you are allowed to go inside. You
don't need to max out your Driving Skill before going to do this event but it
will help a bit. You can still win this event even with the minimum allowed
Driving Skill.

This is a twelve 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 still doesn't handle very well.

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
then go along the wall on the right side. This will allow you to gain
position.

When you get back underneath the bridge then you need to be careful of the
other cars. However, if you hit the rear of the car in front of you, then 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 then drive conservatively. 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 then 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 its place. When used it will allow you to do very sharp
cornering.

Behind the Going Gas Station, in Idlewood, you will find a car parked there
called the Broadway. Upon entering it you will notice that you can do a
vehicle based side-mission. This mission is called the Pimping Mission. Press
the Activate Vehicle Mission button to begin it.

When you first start the side-mission then you will be prompted to pick up
your girl. After picking her up then you will have a time limit (usually
three minutes) to take her to a customer.

Once you have dropped her off then you will be prompted to pick up another
girl. When you have done that then you will be given a three minute time
limit to take her to her customer. When you have dropped her off then you
will be prompted to pick up the first girl.

So now you begin alternating between the two girls. When one is finished then
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:

  >>You will get a notice that 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.

       <0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+<<##0##>>+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0>

  >>She is getting roughed up by the customer. You have about three minutes 
    to get to her before the customer kills her. When you get there then 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.

       <0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+<<##0##>>+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0>

  >>The customer refuses to pay. You have about three minutes to get to your 
    girl before the customer runs off. When you get there then 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 then don't run too far 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 then 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 then this side-mission will end
successfully. You will get a little closer to 100% Completion plus a little

Just like in all the other 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.

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. 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.

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.

When approaching a patient make sure that the patient is on the right of your
Ambulance and don't get too close as the patient is running toward your
vehicle as you approach. When the patient just starts to get in the Ambulance
then go. This will save a second or two. Use your Siren as this causes the
cars to either stop or turn away from you thus making it easier to evade
them.

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 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.

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 (Badlands and San Fierro area). All of the
patients remain confined to the small town thus making this mission easier
(and faster).

When you have successfully completed the Ambulance Mission then your Health
will be maxed out and you will take another step toward 100% Completion.

 \=========================================================================/
            \=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=/

For this mission you have to get a Firetruck, found at most Fire Stations,
and press Activate Vehicle Mission to start the Firetruck Mission. You 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 have to put out a single
car fire. On Level 2 you have to put out the car fire but, when you do that,
a person will exit from the vehicle who 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 speed things up and limit damage to your Firetruck.

After completing Level 12 then you will then successfully complete the
Firetruck Mission. You will get a little closer to 100% Completion and become
fireproof. Having the Fireproof Feature will really help you out on the last
mission of the game.

 \=========================================================================/
            \=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=/

Just like in the other GTA games, you can do the Taxi Mission. Get a Taxi and
press Activate Vehicle Mission to begin this 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 then you 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,
then they won't flee like they did in the previous 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
ones in the previous GTA's.

First, there is the Tip Line. When you get a passenger then a Tip Line will
appear 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 then
you will get a Time Bonus. Since, because of the way people drive in San
Andreas, then 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 fifty 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 fifty in one run you may start to go
hungry because of the amount of time it takes to get them all in one run.

If you want to try to do all fifty in one run then you may want to build up
on your Fat Stat before attempting the Taxi Mission.

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

A lot of work but well worth it. This will make some of the Story Missions a

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

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 him and they hug and
talk. Later, they leave the house and head to the cemetery to meet up with

  Big Smoke takes CJ to the cemetery 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 pissed 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 very upset that everything has gone bad 
  in the hood. When CJ asks why then Sweet points out the graves of fellow 
  members who have met an untimely end at the hands of a 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 
  too far behind or ahead. 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 blast the car to smithereens.

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

  Carl heads over to Ryder's house where he finds him loading up a gun. Ryder 
  is upset that the local pizza place has covered up the graffiti tags he put 
  on the place and wants to teach them a lesson. CJ decides to tag along.....

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Get into Ryder's car to begin the mission. Your first stop is Reece's 
  Barber Shop in Idlewood. When you enter the place then 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 then 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 then Ryder will try to rob the place. But the guy 
  behind the counter recognizes him and is not impressed. 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 
  successfully end the mission (Although one time I shot the guy in the face 
  with a Silenced 9mm Pistol). Ryder also mentions that Sweet has also been 
  upset about the tags and suggests that CJ see him.

  around and check these places out before going on to the next mission.

  When you talk to Sweet then he will hand you a Spray Can so you can hit up 
  some tags in the nearby hoods. He also decides to team up with you on this 
  mission.....

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  If you've done all 100 Graffiti Tags prior to doing the Main Story Missions 
  then 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.

  However, if you want, then you can take advantage of your unlimited ammo 
  for your Spray Can and get all of the remaining Tags in Los Santos before 
  doing these three Tags in East Los Santos. It will take awhile to get them 
  all in one run but you won't have to worry about running out of spray 
  paint.

  Back in East Los Santos, 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 it and run. If 
  you try to confront them with the Spray Can then 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 Tag then you need to jump down and enter Sweet's car. 
  Then drive back to Sweet's house to successfully complete the mission.

  House. 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 then they decide to find 
  some Crack Dealers to bust.

  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 9mm 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 then head back to Sweet's house to successfully 
  complete the mission.

  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.

  When they get to the restaurant then a cutscene will play showing them 
  ordering their food. However, a Ballas car has spotted them and they decide 
  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 then get away before it blows up. 
  Usually the car will blow up before any Ballas can flee.

  Now drive back to Sweet's house. Big Smoke has eaten all of the food, 
  including Ryder's meal, during the ruckus. After getting back to Sweet's 
  house then take Big Smoke back to his. He lives in Idlewood not far from 
  Reece's Barber Shop. After dropping him off then the mission ends 
  successfully.

As mentioned earlier, there are several activities you can do to acquire
muscle mass using the Gyms found throughout San Andreas. 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 and punch him around.

After you knock him down onto the canvas then 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 then he will teach you the new
moves.

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

  After some discussion, the Families decide that need some better firepower 
  to go up against the other gangs. Smoke recommends Emmet, an old friend of 
  his that deals with firearms.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  9mm Pistol (provided).

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  CJ and Smoke head into Willowfield to find Emmet. After nearly getting 
  their heads blown off by him then you begin what is basically a training 
  mission. The instructions on the screen show you how to target with the 
  9mm Pistol. Just follow along. This mission is easy but even easier if you 
  managed to max out your 9mm Pistol Skill beforehand.

  In addition, the 9mm Pistol used for this mission has unlimited ammo. But, 
  if you leave Emmet's area, then you will no longer have unlimited ammo. You 
  will have ten rounds for the 9mm Pistol. However, if you return to Emmet's 
  area, then your 9mm Pistol will return to its unlimited ammo status.

  If you haven't upgraded your 9mm Pistol Skill, and it is recommended for 
  the Ammu-Nation Challenge later in the game, then this is a good place to 
  do it.

  For the PS2 version you can just drag a car from the nearby streets into 
  Emmet's area and shoot at the tire until you reach Hitman Weapon Skill 
  Level.

  For the Xbox version you will need to shoot out the nearby lights and 
  cardboard boxes for starters. You can also go into the nearby streets to 
  shoot cars and people. Then return to Emmet's area to restore your ammo.

  When you complete the targeting exercises then head back to Big Smoke's 
  house to drop him off. When you do that then 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 then the mission is successfully completed.

| Reward \
0=======================>

  Respect Gained.

       <0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+<<##0##>>+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0>

  In addition, all of the ProLaps, Bincos, and SubUrbans open up (and will 
  show up on the in-game map).

  Also, regardless of what Handgun you had before the mission (and whatever 
  amount of ammo it had), it will be replaced by the 9mm Pistol you used in 
  the mission (with minimum ammo). Plus, a 9mm Pistol Icon will open up at 
  Emmet's place.

  You will also open up Big Smoke's set of missions but those will be done
  later.

  This is the earliest mission where you can take advantage of an Early 
  Exploration Exploit.

  When the mission starts, do *NOT* enter Sweet's car. Just go away from the 
  area on foot and take a nearby car so you can explore and go into Unwelcome 
  Areas. There are plenty of pedestrians around so you can massacre them with 
  impunity if you desire.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Get in the car and drive into Ballas turf. After the short cutscene ends 
  then drive near the first Ballas group and let your gang take care of them. 
  You can also get in on the action too by using your Sub-Machine Gun.

  You will also notice a status line indicating the health of the car. If you 
  get it too low then 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 then a second group will 
  appear just north of where you finished the first one. After getting rid of 
  the second group then a third group will appear in Glen Park.

  After getting rid of the third group then 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 then go back to Sweet's house to 
  successfully complete the mission.

  Get a vehicle and drive over to Playa Del Seville before Sweet is killed.
  When using the Sniper Rifle then you can get out of your vehicle 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 then 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 successfully complete the mission so he can settle some 
  "unfinished business".

  Sweet and Kendl have another argument about Kendl's boyfriend Cesar. Kendl 
  leaves and Sweet wants CJ to follow her.....

| The Plan \
0=======================>

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

  Here you can customize the car any way you want. After customizing the car 
  then head over to the lowrider meeting. When you get to the meeting then 
  you are asked to make a wager. After making the wager then 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 then 
  CJ confronts Cesar. After some talking, Cesar convinces CJ that he is good 
  with Kendl and they shake hands.

    >>Remington.
    >>Blade.
    >>Tornado.
    >>Slamvan.

  In addition, you will get a call from Cesar telling CJ about illegal street 
  racing. This will open up Cesar's house in El Corona. Save your new 
  lowrider in the El Corona Safehouse. In addition, you open up the Lowrider 
  Challenge which can be done at Unity Station. I am not going to be covering 
  it since it does not contribute toward 100% Completion.

  CJ meets up with Cesar so he can participate in an illegal street race.....

0======0
| Notes \
0=======================>

  Was inspired by a suggestion from The Illusionist who told me that you 
  could use a Broadway for this race.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  You need a lowrider car for this race. Although you could use the one used 
  in the previous mission (Savannah), you can use any lowrider car that can 
  be modded at Loco Low Co. (look at the list above from the previous mission 
  - but you can't use the Slamvan because it won't be found until later in 
  the game).

  I should also note that you do not have to modify it first. You can drive 
  it "plain".

  After starting the mission with any lowrider car of your choice then follow 
  Cesar to the race and get in the yellow circle to begin.

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

  After some experimentation I found, just like The Illusionist, that the 
  best car to use, because it doesn't spin out so easily, is the Broadway 
  (take the one sitting behind the Going Gas Station in Idlewood - where you 
  would normally start the Pimping Mission).

  When you start the race then you will head west toward Santa Maria Beach. 
  After you get onto the main road then go into the left side to avoid the 
  other contestants. When you turn right and head north along the wide road 
  then go onto the left side and as fast as possible to gain position.

  When you turn left at the tunnel then 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 then it is 
  possible to finish in first place by making a mad dash on the pier. The 
  mission is successfully completed when you win the race.

  SMG.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  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 down 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: "hygiene 
  technician".

  When you get to East Los Santos then go up and ring the doorbell. The 
  cutscene that plays explains that OG Loc wants to take down 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, then 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 then 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.

  One interesting option, according to Glen T. Winstein who was given this 
  information by Anurag Sinha, is when the chase begins, then get off of the 
  bike. Then go out into the street and toward Freddy. Freddy will be waiting 
  for you. You can whip out any weapon and shoot him but you can't destroy 
  him.

  However, shooting Freddy counts towards your Weapon Stats so you can 
  upgrade your weapons here if you want to. But doing this, out here in the 
  street, will attract Police attention.

  If you get close enough to Freddy then he will tear off. You can run back 
  to the bike and zip off without OG Loc. This will speed up your bike which 
  will allow you to catch up to Freddy and get closer to him so you can 
  destroy him quicker.

  If you destroy him during the chase then a couple of interesting things 
  happen. First, when you get the cutscene with OG Loc and CJ together, then 
  it will be in East Los Santos, where the chase would end, regardless of 
  where you killed Freddy.

  And second, any nearby cars will stand still. In addition, if you drive 
  further away from the nearby cars, then there will be no cars on the road. 
  There will be peds but no cars. The only exceptions are Police vehicles 
  when you have a Wanted Rating. When you finally find and pick up OG Loc 
  then things slowly start to return to normal.

  After killing Freddy, regardless of method, then take OG Loc to his job 
  which is the Burger Shot in Marina. After dropping him off then the mission 
  ends successfully.

  OG Loc wants to start advancing his music career and needs a really nice

  needs.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  Silenced 9mm Pistol.

0======0
| Notes \
0=======================>

  Added some new information based on a YouTube video. You may want to get a 
  homie and take him with you to OG Loc.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  You need to pick this mission up between 22:00 and 6:00. After the 
  cutscene ends then head down to the beach party. When you get there you 
  will find the van with the DJ doing her thing behind it. The van is locked, 
  indestructible (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.

  There are two ways to go about this mission depending on your style:

    >>Dance the Night Away
      ********************
        Go up to the DJ, talk to her, and give two positive answers. This 
        will start a dancing mini-game using the four main face buttons. Like 
        the Lowrider mini-game in the mission "Cesar Vialpando" you have to 
        press the correct button when it gets into the circle. Timing each 
        button correctly 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 then you will fail the mission.

        The pattern never changes so, if you fail, then 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.

        If you get 4,000+ points then you are invited into her office (which 
        is her van - press D-Pad (Right) again to give a positive response). 
        Then get in the van and drive off.

    >>For Those With Two Left Feet
      ****************************
        This method comes from TheDeliciousGaming who posted a video of it 
        using the PC Version (and I verified this on the PS2 AO Version). 
        Basically this trick allows you to skip the dancing sequence 
        altogether. Before you start the mission you will need to get a homie 
        from Grove Street and take him with you.

        When you get to the van then try to enter the vehicle from the 
        drivers side. Of course, you can't open the door but continue to try. 
        This will prompt your homie to enter the van on the passenger side. 
        Naturally he will have no problem getting into the vehicle.

        Just as he opens the door then disband the gang. When CJ starts 
        telling him goodbye then immediately crouch. It is important to note 
        that this trick will *NOT* work properly unless he is crouched. After 
        crouching then quickly get about 40 feet in front of the van.

        At this point your homie will do one of two things:

          --He will stay in the passenger seat.

          --He will get out but re-enter the van, move into the drivers seat, 
            and honk for you to join him.

        With your back to the van then switch to your Silenced Pistol, enter 
        target mode, and rotate the reticle towards your homie. If you enter 
        target mode while facing the van then you risk possibly auto 
        targeting the DJ through the vehicle and ending up with a mission 
        failure.

        Target your homie's head and fire one shot to kill him. He will then 
        fall out of the vehicle leaving the door open in the process. Then 
        get in the van and drive off.

  After you drive off then you have to take it to a lock-up in Commerce. The 
  other partygoers will give chase so put the pedal to the metal. After the 
  van is in the lock-up then the mission is completed successfully.

  OG Loc needs CJ to steal the rhyme book of a big star rapper named Madd 
  Dogg. He decides to do it if it will shut off Loc's awful rapping.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  --Knife (provided).
  --Silenced 9mm Pistol.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  You have to sneak inside the mansion where you found Oyster [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, 
  then kill the second guard. After hiding from the third guard then sneak 
  out and stealth kill him.

  Now crouch and get past the next two guards. As you get near the Rhyme 
  Book then you will also find a room with Body Armor and a nearby guard. 
  Kill the guard and steal the Rhyme Book.

  After doing that then you can now use your other weapons. Switch to your 
  Silenced 9mm Pistol. The guards will be carrying Silenced 9mm 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 then take the provided bike and ride back to the Burger 
  Shot to successfully complete the mission.

  Officer Tenpenny wants CJ to torch some gangbanger in East Los Santos.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  Molotovs (provided).

0======0
| Notes \
0=======================>

  Doing the Firetruck Mission and obtaining the Fireproof Feature prior to 
  doing the mission will help greatly here.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Go and get the Molotovs in Downtown Los Santos. You are given twenty 
  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 then 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 then 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.

  After the two of you get out of the burning house then you have to 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. After you drop her off then 
  the mission will end successfully.

0=======0

  Nothing other than the fact that Denise is your Girlfriend regardless of 
  whether you wanted one or not.

  Sweet wants you to take over Glen Park and flush out a traitor.....

0========0

0=======================>

  SMG.

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Drive over to the Downtown Ammu-Nation to pick up the mission. Go inside 
  and have a look around. Go up to the counter and see what you can buy. If 
  you have a lot of money then you can get a lot of ammo for your guns.

  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 then 
  all of the pedestrians and nearby cars disappear. In addition, Health and 
  Body Armor Icons will randomly appear in the streets surrounding the area.
  The Ballas come in three waves. With each successive wave, they get better 
  weapons. After destroying all three waves then 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 then the traitor will come out of his 
  house. Chase him down and kill him to successfully complete the mission.

  Respect Gained.

       <0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+<<##0##>>+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0>

  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 the Challenge because that is when all of the Challenges are 
  available. At this point only two of the four Challenges are available.

  In addition, you can now start taking over territories. However, it is best 
  to wait until later in the game to start doing this for reasons I will 
  explain later.

  And, speaking of territories.....

If you look on your in-game map you will find several areas of Los Santos
that are color coded:

  >>Green - Grove Street Families.
  >>Purple - Ballas.
  >>Yellow - Vagos.

Each of these areas are controlled by a gang. You can take over a territory
by going over to a rival area and shoot three gang members to start a gang
war. Conversely, your own areas can be attacked as well.

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
then 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 press Activate Vehicle Mission to start the vehicle
mission and then press Activate Vehicle Mission again to turn it off. When
you turn off the vehicle mission then the takeover will end and the territory
is still yours.

If you acquire all fifty three territories then you won't be getting any more
attacks from rival gangs. But, as I just said, you don't want to do that yet.

For now, let's go back to the Main Story.....

  After you jump the wall and are given instructions on what you can do with 
  your gang then tell them to stay put and jump over the wall again to go 
  exploring. You can still get Wanted Ratings but there will be no Cops on 
  the street to harass you. Go to the Pay 'N' Spray near the Cemetery to get 
  rid of the Wanted Ratings before finishing the mission.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  This mission can only be picked up between 9:00 and 17:00.

  The game will instruct you on how to recruit members. Switch to your Melee 
  Weapon and target the gang members. Recruit them, 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 then 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.

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

  Officer Tenpenny wants CJ to check out a warehouse near Ocean Docks where 
  the Ballas and the Russians are making a deal.....

  --Silenced 9mm Pistol.
  --SMG.
  --Sniper Rifle (+50 rounds).

0======0
| Notes \
0=======================>

  I got this letter from Bob Smith that can help make this mission a little 
  easier:

    "When I had to do Grey Imports, I stole a car, went around the back, 
     jumped on the car, scaled the wall and missed a heck of a lot of crazy 
     guards. I managed to get straight to the keypad with a minimum of fuss."

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Before doing the mission, go over and get some Remote Explosives near the 
  Inside Track Betting Shop in Montgomery. Then go to the C.R.A.S.H. icon in 
  Market to start the mission.

  Get another vehicle and drive to the yellow marker in Ocean Docks. The best 
  way is through the flood control channel. When you get to the marker then 
  you will see a red circle at the top of the ramp that leads into the flood 
  control channel.

  Switch to your Sniper Rifle and go into the red circle. After the cutscene 
  ends then step a little to your left and zoom in with the Sniper Rifle.

  You will see a bunch of guards and a couple of Forklifts. The first 
  Forklift will be way in the back moving around. In addition, the first 
  Forklift will be transporting explosive barrels. Zoom in on him and shoot 
  the barrels to destroy him.

  The second Forklift will be to the left but not doing anything. He too has 
  explosive barrels. Shoot the barrels to destroy this Forklift. To the right 
  of the second Forklift are two guards. Snipe one of them and this will 
  alert the others. Two more guards will head toward you but are easy 
  pickings with your Sniper Rifle.
  
  Another guard will stop near a truck in the background. Remember what I 
  said to step a little to your left before using the Sniper Rifle?

  Well, there is another explosive barrel sitting near the stairs by the 
  building but, if you just stood in the red circle area, you won't be able 
  to shoot it. By sidestepping left then you can hit the barrel and take down 
  the remaining guards.

  After doing that then switch to your 9mm Pistol or Sub-Machine Gun of 
  choice and go to the keypad. Damage it and you will open the door. When the 
  door opens then 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.

  After you shoot all of the gunmen then 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 go to the wall about six feet left of the 
  door.

  This will trigger the second Balla and the Russian within the office. Do 
  *NOT* enter the office. Wait for the Balla to either exit the office or get 
  into position for you to shoot him.

  After you kill the Balla then go back near the wall left of the entrance. 
  If you angle yourself correctly you will see the Russian just standing
  there inside the office through the sliver of the entrance. Switch to your 
  Sniper Rifle and fire at him through the entrance.

  It will take several shots but, once you kill the Russian, then the mission 
  is completed successfully (and you didn't even have to chase him).

  Madd Dogg's manager is blackballing OG Loc and he wants CJ to get rid of 
  him.....

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  You need to come between 12:00 and 5:00 to do this 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. The game will state that you need to damage the 
  car to force the driver out so you can take it then head to a Pay 'N' Spray 
  to repair the damage. But I came up with a much better method of acquiring 
  the target vehicle.

  From your starting position, head east all the way to the main road. When 
  you get there then turn left and drive past the Downtown Ammu-Nation. Then 
  drive up the incline just north of the Ammu-Nation. When you get to the top 
  of this incline then you should get to an intersection and you will get a 
  phone call from OG Loc about the target car. At this intersection, turn 
  left.

  You should see two black cars with a large gap between them on the right 
  side of the road (you should also see the Walk of Fame on both sides of 
  this road). After you pass these two cars then head to the *SECOND* 
  intersection then stop just before you get there.

  Get out of your car, run into the intersection and head north in the 
  *ONCOMING* lane. Stop roughly partway up the hill. You should notice that 
  the target vehicle is heading towards you. When he gets to you then he will 
  stop (he won't run over you). When he stops then just jack the vehicle from 
  him and drive away before he can shoot at you.

  After acquiring the target vehicle then you need to drive over to the 
  awards ceremony to pick up the manager. If you damage the car even in the 
  slightest then you will have to go back to the Pay 'N' Spray.

  After you meet up with the other drivers then you will have to park in the 
  red circle as close to the curb as possible. When you do that then you will 
  drive over to the ceremony while keeping in-between the two security cars 
  in the motorcade.

  Stop at the award ceremony to let in the manager. After the cutscene ends 
  then quickly drive off. Now you have to drive the car off the Verona Beach 
  Pier (to kill the manager - he can't swim). The two security cars will give 
  chase to stop you.

  If you jump off of the Pier and the security cars see you then you must 
  kill all of the security personnel, from both cars, to complete the 
  mission. To save you that issue what you need to do is drive a little bit 
  away from the awards ceremony then stop. Usually one of the security cars 
  will stop next to you.

  Drive-by it to make it flame then drive off before it explodes. Do the same 
  to the other security car. When both security cars are destroyed then you 
  can safely drive to the Pier to get rid of the manager.

  When you get on the Pier then the game will tell you to go as fast as you 
  can and jump out at the last second. But you can just drive off the Pier, 
  land in the water, and get out of the sinking vehicle to successfully 
  complete the mission.

  OG Loc quits his job at Burger Shot and violates his parole in the process. 
  But, before he goes back to prison, he wants to throw one last party.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  SMG.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  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 then 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 microphone 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. 
  When the Ballas get to the blockade then 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 for your SMG then this is a bit easier. After you 
  have killed the last Balla then the mission ends successfully.

  SMG.

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  When you get to the meet in East Los Santos you realize that his "cousin" 
  Mary is slang for weed and Big Smoke wants 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 
  or completed the Burglar Mission (for the Infinite Stamina Feature) then 
  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.

  Big Smoke wants to follow a lead that will put them "deep in the game".....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  --M4 (150 rounds).
  --Sniper Rifle (40 rounds).

0======0
| Notes \
0=======================>

  You may want to get a couple of AK-47s then go to Los Santos International 
  Airport and get the M4 at the west end of the runway. You may also want to 
  get Hitman Weapon Skill on the M4 prior to doing the mission.

  Reader Lowell R. had an additional option to one of the "Who Needs Big 
  Smoke?" method:

    "I like the method where you head north and wait for the train, but what 
     has the train operator ever done to you? All he's trying to do is make a 
     living and take care of his family. I didn't use the M4 or the sniper 
     rifle. The M4 may be powerful and fast, but the minigun is POWERFUL AND 
     FAST. I just dove along the suggested route, stopped at the wall, had CJ 
     pull himself up onto that roof thing extending out from the wall (to get 
     a better angle; I think it can also be done from the ground if you don't 
     waste any time. Then just wipe out the Vagos as they approach. The train 
     operator is unharmed and the train is undamaged and goes on its way."

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  There are three methods for completing this mission depending on your 
  style:

    >>The Standard Method
      *******************
        When the mission starts then 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 then 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 then he will be able to kill the last Vago shortly 
        after entering the tunnel. After killing the last Vago then take Big 
        Smoke home to successfully complete the mission.

    >>Who Needs Big Smoke?
      ********************
        When the cutscene with the Vagos getting on the train ends then 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, then 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 climbing that then 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 then 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 then switch to your M4 and 
        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, then they will just stand there making 
        it a lot easier to kill them.

        The M4 is easily the best weapon to take down 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 then 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 RPG).

        After you kill the Vagos then jump off the train then grab another 
        vehicle. Based on information provided to me by Willum Hardy you can 
        use any vehicle to pick up Big Smoke instead of the Sanchez you use 
        in the mission. After picking him up then drive Big Smoke over to his 
        house to successfully complete the mission.

    >>Sniping the Train Operator
      **************************
        Then there is this method created by GTA_Phreak:

        What he did was drive *NORTH* instead of following the train then 
        head east toward the 24 Hour Motel. He stopped on the road 
        intersection just north of the Motel (a Glendale that the train runs 
        into during the mission also appears here).

        According to GTA_Phreak, the train won't go fast until you get close 
        to it. So, by going this route which takes you away from the train 
        but not far enough to get a mission failure, then the train moves 
        slowly. When you get to the intersection just north of the 24 Hour 
        Motel then stop and get off the bike and switch to your Sniper Rifle.

        At this point you will see the train just making the turn. What you 
        need to do is snipe the train operator. When you do that then the 
        train will stop and the Vagos will be helpless.

        From your vantage point (*DON'T* get close to the train or it will 
        move again) snipe the Vagos (it will take four rounds from the Sniper 
        Rifle to take each one down).

        After that, either take Big Smoke back to his place (if you let him 
        on the bike) or go and get him (if you didn't let him on the bike), 
        then take him back to his place to successfully complete the mission.

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

0========0

  Micro SMG (provided).

0======0
| Notes \
0=======================>

  Get about 500+ rounds for your Sub-Machine Gun.

0=========0
| The Plan \
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 ends, 
  you now have to barge in.

  When you do that then you will be assaulted by several Russians who are 
  trying to kill Big Smoke. You will also notice that whatever Sub-Machine 
  Gun you had in your inventory will be replaced by the Micro SMG. Having 
  Hitman Weapon Skill Level will also help you because that will allow you to 
  duel-wield the Micro SMG.

  After killing all of the Russians in the lobby then get the Body Armor Icon 
  and 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 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 then 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 then the mission will be 
  completed successfully.

  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 Sub-Machine Gun of choice prior to 
  this mission then you will lose it (and you would have to go back to 
  Ammu-Nation to replace).

  In addition, this will also end Big Smoke's line of missions. I will now 
  move on to.....

Ryder is one of the more loyal members of the Grove Street Families and is
always smoking blunts and dissing CJ. He has three missions and they are
mostly about acquiring weapons for the Families. He can be found next door to

  Ryder wants to steal guns from some old retired military guy instead of 
  relying on Emmet. CJ decides to go along.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  --Any melee weapon.
  --AK-47.
  --M4.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  You need to come between 12:00 and 20:00 to do this mission.

  Get into the Boxville and head over to Colonel Furhberger's house in East 
  Beach. You have about eight minutes to get the guns before daylight. When 
  you get there then get inside the house to get the guns. You have to be 
  quiet while inside the house otherwise you wake up the Colonel and 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 then you will stand and you must move slowly to prevent making 
  noise.

  According to Stefan Cvetkovic if you have your AK-47, M4, or Baseball Bat 
  weapon selected then you can walk faster without making more noise and save 
  some time.

  Take the crate outside to the Boxville. Drop it into the truck by pressing 
  the Enter Vehicle Button then head back inside. After getting all three 
  then go to the drop-off garage in Playa Del Seville to successfully 
  complete the mission.

  While visiting Ryder, Officer Tenpenny drops in to give the boys a hard 
  time. He also gives them an assignment that involves a train.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  SMG.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Get in Ryder's truck and head north. When you get to the train then you 
  will see that the Vagos have beaten them to it. Get out and get rid of the 
  Vagos with the SMG. After that then the Ballas come to try to take the 
  train. Get rid of the four Ballas. After that then get on the train. The 
  train will now begin to move.

  You 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.

  After you successfully get ten crates to Ryder then you will end up with a 
  3-Star Wanted Rating. Go to the Idlewood Pay 'N' Spray to get rid of it. 
  Then head back to Ryder's house to successfully complete the mission.

  Ryder wants to hit the local National Guard to steal some weapons and CJ 
  decides to join in.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  SMG.

0======0
| Notes \
0=======================>

  Tweaked some things a bit based on info given to Glen T. Winstein by Anurag 
  Sinha. Glen then shared that info with me.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Get into the truck and head over to Ocean Docks. When you get into the red 
  circle then you will see a small cutscene with the National Guard. 
  After that then 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 facility, 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 then 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.

  If you explore all of the nearby area you will see that there are a lot of 
  crates outside the armory. All in all, there are seventeen crates. You can 
  actually destroy the crates, using a melee weapon or hitting it with 
  another crate (when in the Forklift), to get weapons and health.

  Shoot the lock to the gate to let Ryder in. He will park the truck and 
  stand guard while you load it up. Use the Right Analog Stick to move the 
  lift up and down on the Forklift. You have to load 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.

  Every so often Ryder will be attacked by the guards. When you either see a 
  guard coming to attack or you hear shooting then drive the Forklift between 
  the guard and Ryder and drive-by the guard before he can kill Ryder. If 
  Ryder dies then the mission is failed.

  One way to reduce the number of soldiers you have to deal with, prior to 
  letting Ryder in, is to take the crates that are outside the armory and use 
  them to block the bottom of the two sets of stairs near the gate. Anurag 
  Sinha noted that the crates were more effective than using the Mesa which I 
  was using before.

  Carefully line three of the crates, side by side, per set of stairs to 
  block them off. The soldiers come down these two stairs but, if they are 
  blocked off, then they can't reach Ryder.

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

  The best path to get to the lock-up is after the intersection at the end of 
  the bridge you will see the pink building that has the TG Stages logo on it 
  to your right. Right after the building is a chain link fence. Where the 
  chain link fence ends turn right. This will lead you right to Emmet's. 
  After reaching the lock-up safely then the mission ends successfully.

| Early Exploration Exploit |
0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0

  The are two points within the mission where you can leave to do some 
  exploring:

  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 one 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.

  This exploit will render San Andreas a ghost state (no peds or vehicles in 
  the street - except for parked cars). A good way to explore without any 
  interference from anybody.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Drive over to the Jefferson Motel where the meeting is being held at. After 
  dropping off Sweet then 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 with plenty of ammo however, 
  I just switch back to my trusty SMG.

  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 then you will see a woman 
  going from right to left between rooms. If you go inside the room she went 
  into then 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 then her kiss will bring it back up to 100 points regardless of 
  your current max health.

  However, if your health is above 100 points, then 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 (in the 
  lobby) to help restore your health.

  Take it slow and kill off 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 then 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 then 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 in the previous 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 then 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, then he dies and 
  the mission is failed. But you can usually get through this with him not 
  having any damage.

  After killing the SWAT guys then destroy the SWAT chopper. After destroying 
  the helicopter then 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 earlier mission "Just 
  Business". You are also given an AK-47 to use for this stage of the 
  mission. If you have a high Weapon Skill Level for the AK-47 then you will 
  have a faster firing rate and increased range.

  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, then 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 
  then the car is destroyed and the mission is failed. When the gun jams then 
  you are at the end of the path. Watch the cinematic and afterwards the 
  mission is completed successfully.

  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.....

  You may want to get a minimum of 60 rounds for the Sniper Rifle prior to

| The Plan \
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 then Sweet dies and the mission is failed. However, you 
  still can get there in plenty of time to save him.

  When you get there then 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. At this point 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 then another Ballas car will 
  show up. Kill all of the Ballas and another Ballas car will show up. Kill 
  those Ballas and you will successfully complete the mission.

  Another way is to use the Sniper Rifle. Get to a safe distance and kill the 
  Ballas with the weapon. When the vehicles show up then shoot the vans to 
  make them blow up and kill the bulk of them. Do the same with the last car 
  then mop up any survivors.

  If you took advantage of an Early Exploration Exploit and acquired a 
  Mini-Gun then this mission becomes much easier since you can easily blow up 
  the Balla cars before any of them can get out.

  After successfully defending Sweet from the Ballas then 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 realizes that he is 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 so much
bullshit as the corrupt officer bluntly puts it.

Tenpenny then gives CJ a Camera and an assignment. He wants CJ to kill a
snitch somewhere near Mount Chiliad and wants evidence of the kill. If CJ
disobeys then 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 and San Fierro area are officially open
and ready for exploration. As you look at the in-game map you find that 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 the mission
"Doberman", then 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 also have a Camera with unlimited "ammo" which will
make it easier to do the San Fierro Photo-Ops if you haven't already done so
with one of the Early Exploration Exploits.

You should also go and get a Sniper Rifle for the next mission. You can go
back to Los Santos or, if you did all of the San Fierro Photo-Ops (regardless
of whether or not you used any of the Early Exploration Exploits), then you
can go to the Xoomer Garage Safehouse in San Fierro to get one.

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 the time
to save the game and start exploring this new 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.

Now let's get started by going over the.....

                  Starting from the southeast corner of this intersection, 
                  head south along the sidewalk until you see a cove with 
                  some large rocks to your left. Enter this cove and go 
                  behind the rocks to find the weapon.

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 then 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 then 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
straight-aways 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, then you will be placed near where you tumbled.

And, no, you can't use your Sub-Machine Gun on the other competitors. You
will be automatically disqualified if you do.

When you start to see Angle Pine then 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 then you can start to speed up because 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, then you can do what you want to them.

You will notice that as you kill each competitor then you will climb up in
the standings. Once you kill all of them then you will be in first place. Get
back on the bike and cross the line to finish first and win the race.

However, if you are really behind the others, then you may find that some of
the other competitors won't be at the finish line when you get there. Some of
them will leave the area and head out toward the Angel Pine Junkyard.

If you're fortunate then you may find them hanging around the wall by the
Junkyard. But, if you go past the entrance to the Scrap Yard, then you will
be disqualified. The thing to do here is go to the trees before the Junkyard,
get off of your bike and snipe them. But, if they aren't there, then you will
lose the race because you won't be able to complete the exploit.

Scattered around San Fierro and surrounding areas are what is known as
Photo-Ops. There are fifty of them and they can only be collected by using a
Camera.

There are nineteen Camera Icons that can be found in San Fierro you can use
to get and fill your Camera with film. As noted earlier, the Camera is a
Handheld Item and will replace any other Handheld Item you may already have.

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.

If you are having trouble finding Photo-Ops then you can wait until you have
done the missions "Black Project" or "Breaking The Bank At Caligula's" to
unlock the Thermal Goggles and Night Vision Goggles respectively. You can
find the glow of the Photo-Ops regardless of the time of day when you use
either of the two Goggles.

However, I do recommend the use of the Night Vision Goggle over the Thermal
Goggles. You can see your surroundings better.

The best time to do Photo-Ops (other than by using any of the Early
Exploration Exploits) is after completion of the mission "The Green Sabre"
but before doing the mission "Badlands". 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.

After you find a Photo-Op then 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.

And, because you can do long range shots, you don't have to be right next to
a Photo-Op to acquire it. This makes acquiring all fifty pretty easy.

You will get $100 per Icon and a $100,000 bonus for getting all fifty. You
will also spawn the following Weapon Icons at the Xoomer Garage Safehouse
where you start the San Fierro missions later on in the game:

  >>Grenades
  >>Sniper Rifle
  >>Shotgun
  >>Micro SMG

Listed below, by neighborhood, is the Photo-Op list for San Fierro. The Map
co-ordinates refer to the printed map that comes included with the game disc.
Landmarks are based off of icons on the in-game map, easily notable land or
city features, or other Photo-Ops.

It should be noted that, if you use an Early Exploration Exploit, then
Safehouses, Gyms, and Arena Events won't appear on the in-game map (consult
the map that comes with your copy). The same goes for Ammu-Nations if you do
an Early Exploration Exploit before the mission "Doberman" and for certain
Clothes Stores.

Depending on where you place yourself you can acquire multiple Photo-Ops from
one position. Below is a list of places where you can get more than one
Photo-Op:

  >>Gant Bridge
    ***********
      After acquiring Photo-Op [GBR-P1] then you can get Photo-Op [SFB-P2] by 
      rotating east.

  >>Esplanade North
    ***************
      Stand across the street west of Photo-Op [EPN-P4] to acquire it then 
      look southeast to get Photo-Op [EPN-P5].

  >>Financial
    *********
      From the top of the Big Pointy Building you can acquire as many as ten 
      Photo-Ops. They are [FNC-P7], [DTN-P14], [GVB-P16], [DTN-P11], 
      [CLH-P9], [EPN-P4], [EPN-P5], [KNG-P28], [DTN-P13], and [CLH-P8].

  >>King's
    ******
      From the rooftop of the building for [KNG-P28] you can acquire it then 
      go to the southwest corner of the roof to acquire [KNG-P26], [KNG-P27], 
      [QNS-P24], [GRC-P36], and [DHR-P38]. Then head to the southeast corner 
      of the rooftop to acquire [CRS-P40], and [ESB-P31].

  >>Ocean Flats
    ***********
      Stand just north of Photo-Op [OFL-P33] then look south to acquire it 
      and Photo-Op [HSB-P34] then look southwest to get Photo-Op [OFL-P32].

  >>Avispa Country Club
    *******************
      Stand in the parking lot and look north to acquire Photo-Op [AVC-P41] 
      then rotate to look south and get Photo-Op [AVC-P42].

  >>Easter Bay Airport

In Queens, parked outside the Hippy Shopper, is a bike (Freeway). By getting
on the Freeway then 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 it then 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 will gain a Money Icon outside the Hippy Shopper that
will generate maximum revenue of $2,000 per day.

It should also be noted that the Freeway is on one of the Export and Import
lists that you will be doing later in the game. So, after completion of this
Asset Mission, then go and save the motorcycle so you can use it complete one
of the car lists when you get to do them.

Back where you can acquire Photo-Op [ESB-P31] is a dry-dock. 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 eighteen 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.

However, there is a little trick, from Glen Winstein, that can make this a
bit more tolerable. Go up to a corona but stop just before you get there.

Wait for the clock to count down to zero. When it reaches zero but, before
the corona disappears (to indicate a mission failure), then tag the corona.
If done right then you will get the ten seconds but the timer will no longer
be there. You now can do the challenge without worrying about running out of
time. If you damage the bike too much then you can run to the nearby Pay 'N'
Spray (near Cranberry Station) to repair your bike.

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

Down in the southern part of San Fierro, in Foster Valley, is Corvin Stadium.
Here you can do an Arena Event known as the Blood Bowl. 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 Blood Bowl 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.

The main reason this is much harder is because the marker will constantly
jump around the place thus 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 period.

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 Blood Bowl then you will inch closer to
100% Completion and the Bloodring Banger will spawn outside Corvin Stadium.

And don't forget to make a visit to Cobra Martial Arts, in Garcia, to learn
new moves from the Martial Arts Trainer to get closer to 100% Completion.
And, according to Naveen Akshar, you don't have to completely knock him out.
Just push (or hit) him out of the ring to defeat him so you can learn new
moves.

  Re-acquire a Sniper Rifle and about 15+ rounds.

0=========0
| The Plan \
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 then 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. Then use the Camera to look at the 
  house. If you stopped correctly then you should see the snitch through the 
  door. Switch to your Sniper Rifle and kill the snitch.
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
  **IMPORTANT: Aim for the body *NOT* the head. If you shoot him in the head 
               then you will blow it off thus rendering him unidentifiable 
               and you will fail the mission.
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
  After killing the snitch then 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 then 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 drop-off point to successfully complete the mission.

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 "Grand Theft Auto III" and she is
every bit as bitchy and psychotic here as she was in Liberty City. As they
drive off she then 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 
  bulletproof glass. Catalina then decides upon another course of action.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  --Heat-Seeking RPG.
  --Remote Explosives.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Get in the truck. The game will instruct you on how to hook up the truck 
  with the gas tank. After hooking the truck up then 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 however, if you 
  can get a good enough speed, then they will not be able to do much of 
  anything.

  However, if you're having trouble dealing with the attendants, then you can 
  get rid of them before driving off. Once you have attached the cab to the 
  truck then 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 RPG, lock onto the car and wait for it to turn 
  red. When they start backing away to try again then 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 Explosives. 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 then 
  detonate the Remote Explosives when he is safely away from the tanker.

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

0=======0

  $5,000.

       <0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+<<##0##>>+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0>

  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.

  In addition, you will also open up the RS Haul Trucking Asset Mission. 
  However, only six of the eight missions are available at this time. So I am 
  going to go over the RS Haul Trucking Asset Mission later in the guide when 
  I open up the Desert and Las Venturas area.

  disturbing his peace and wants Carl to get a harvesting machine from 
  them.....

| Notes \
0=======================>

  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 III" were planted here.

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

  I also tried a new way to get to the Combine Harvester which is much 
  simpler than the old method that I was using before.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Get to the blip just outside the farm. You are instructed to get the 
  Combine Harvester near the back of the farm. You are also supposed to go 
  through the farm and take down the various workers to get at the harvester.

  But there is a way to get to the Harvester without incurring any combat 
  from the workers. When you regain control then angle right and go over the 
  small hill by the large trees.

  When you get to the fence then head east and go around the corner. Once 
  around the corner and going north then just head straight for the back of 
  the farm where the Combine Harvester is doing its work.

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

  In addition, you can now purchase 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.

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.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  When you get to the bank then you will be put 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 then 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 then you will have to make a bridge jump. 
  If you fail the jump and fall in the water then 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 successfully complete the mission.

  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.....

  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.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  SMG.

0=========0
| The Plan \
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 manage 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. You can't let them get too far ahead or too far behind otherwise 
  you will fail the mission.

  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 Colinas. There 
  they will dismount their Quadbikes. Get off of yours and quickly kill all 
  three would-be-robbers before they enter the hideout.

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

  Another method recommended to me by Bragon the Bat is to find and use 
  another car (you can get a Ambulance from the Hospital in Montgomery during 
  the chase or, better yet, bring a Buffalo with you from the Fern Ridge 
  Safehouse). With this you can ram them off their bikes and run them over. 
  In addition, Catalina also has a better vantage point to shoot off the 
  riders.

  When they arrive at the Betting Shop (in Montgomery) then Catalina gives 
  Carl some Remote Explosives to help with their mission.....

  Remote Explosives (provided).

  When you get inside then you are to blow open the door with the Remote 
  Explosives. Throw one on the door then go into the furthest corner and 
  detonate it. Once the door is blown off then go into the room and do the 
  same to the safe. After blowing open the safe then 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, 
  while dodging the occasional Police vehicle, to use the Pay 'N' Spray. 
  After you get to the Pay 'N' Spray then use it and take Catalina back to 
  the hideout to successfully complete the mission.

  When Carl gets to the starting line, south of Montgomery, then 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.....

0======0
| Notes \
0=======================>

  Have a fast car saved in a nearby garage and take it with you to the race. 
  The best one would be the Buffalo from the Fern Ridge Safehouse and park it 
  at the Palomino Creek Safehouse and save your game there before you do the 
  race.

  I had a reader, Tim Stam, suggest to me that you can use any car for this 
  race. He preferred using the Coach because he could knock the other riders 
  out of the race. I decided to try the Firetruck because of its size and 
  speed. However, I found out that you cannot use Police and rescue vehicles 
  for this race. Bummer.

  Another reader, Spike McCloud, had this suggestion for an alternate 
  vehicle:

    "I found that the tanker without the trailer attatched worked the best 
     for me. It's really hijack if you go down the road a little, and they're 
     usually not too far away from the actual starting point. They can knock 
     out cars very easily, and they're pretty fast, if you know how to handle 
     them."

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  You go up against three other racers. When you start the race then 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 then 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. After you get the lead then 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 while underneath the bridge then 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 then 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 then you'll win the race.

  Catalina confronts Carl at the starting line and, after explaining her

  She also introduces him to her new beau who looks strangely familiar. He is 
  GTA3 Guy / Fido / Claude Speed / or whatever-you-want-to-call-him. After 
  the introduction then it's time to race.....

0======0
| Notes \
0=======================>

  You'll need to complete all of Catalina's robbery missions before you can 
  do this one.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  The race starts where you ended the race in "Wu Zi Mu". 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 then Catalina gives Carl the deeds to a 
  garage in San Fierro. After that then Carl and Catalina say their final 
  good-byes and the mission is successfully completed.

0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0

  When you get into the Mothership then you can drive it around or leave it 
  to go exploring. Just don't take the Mothership to the marker in San 
  Fierro. With this exploit you can kill everyone, including Cops, without 
  getting any Wanted Ratings (that is, if you want to do any custom 
  rampages).

0=========0
| The Plan \
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. You will also 
  be approached by a Police helicopter which will hover overhead.

  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 then 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 then CJ will start to get a little high from the smoke but won't 
  cause any problems. But it is also at this point that CJ tells The Truth to 
  fire up the Mothership which is the name for The Truth's van. Head to one 
  end of the fields, arm your Sniper Rifle, and zoom in on the hovering 
  helicopter.

  Now start shooting at the helicopter. You will notice that your scope will 
  move around due to your dizziness but be patient and take good shots. After 
  you shoot up the helicopter a bit then you will hear the engine slow down 
  which indicates the extensive damage you are doing. A few more shots will 
  destroy the chopper and it will go down not far from the Mothership.

  This will make the mission easier since you don't have to worry about 
  destroying it after you clear the fields. It should also be noted that you 
  cannot destroy the chopper before The Truth enters the Mothership. If you 
  do then the chopper will drop onto The Truth and you will kill him and fail 
  the mission.

  Another option to destroying the fields, as told to me by Apearsall20, is 
  to buy about sixty Remote Explosives. Then, when the mission starts, use 
  them instead of the Flamethrower. Scatter a few around some of the fields 
  then explode them. This will take a nice chunk out of some of the fields. 
  Repeat where necessary until the fields are destroyed.

  Regardless of method, after destroying all of the fields, then go back to 
  The Truth who is sitting in the Mothership. Enter the Mothership then drive 
  to the Xoomer Garage in San Fierro, which you won from Catalina, to 
  successfully complete the mission.

  If you did not destroy the chopper with the Sniper Rifle then The Truth 
  will give CJ a RPG to deal with it. The Truth then starts driving up the 
  road but stops after a short distance. Then use the Rocket Launcher to 
  destroy the chopper which is following the Mothership.

  By the way, make sure that the Chopper is not too close to the van when you 
  blow it up. I found out the hard way that you can fail the mission if the 
  Chopper crashes near the van.

  The flames from the downed Chopper will set the van on fire and it will 
  eventually explode, killing The Truth and failing the mission. But the 
  Sniper Rifle method of destroying the chopper makes this other method 
  unnecessary.

  Safehouses in San Fierro. You should also consider moving any cars you have 
  saved for the Import / Export Car Lists from Los Santos to San Fierro.

  from in "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City".

  The first stop is the Xoomer Gas Station in Easter Basin where Jethro 
  works. When you get there then honk your horn and he will join you. The

  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 then 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 explanation 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 Xoomer Garage Safehouse to successfully complete 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 best time to do 
  this mission is in the daytime so you can see the planes as they approach.

  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 then 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 then 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 then you'll successfully complete the mission.

| Notes \
0=======================>

  In the past versions of the guide I mentioned that this mission was plagued 
  by Bad Design because you ran out of fuel a lot when trying to do this 
  mission. As it turns out, this mission did have a design flaw, or a bug, 
  that Rockstar went and corrected.

  In the PS2 AO Version you used fuel regardless of what you did. You could 
  use the throttle all the way, you could glide, you could drive forwards and 
  backwards on the ground. It didn't matter, you always used fuel.

  This made the mission rather frustrating for a lot of people. When the game 
  first came out, you could go to the message boards and find at least five 
  topics telling how much this mission sucked.

  I got an e-mail from Andrew Petrie saying that you could glide without 
  using fuel. I first tried it out on the PS2 AO Version but that didn't 
  work. I tried it out on the Xbox AO Version and it did work. When I got the 
  Xbox SE Version then I found that it worked there also.

  But, when it came time for the PS2 SE Version, would Rockstar fix this 
  mission the same way for that version? The answer is yes. So only the PS2 
  AO Version has the fuel problem that has been corrected on all other 
  versions.

  I am going to break things down into three parts. The first part lists the 
  targets in the mission, the second part lists the PS2 AO Version strategy 
  and the third will list the strategy for the other versions.

                  bail when shot at. Will attack the plane on foot.

    >>Target #3 - Drives a van and starts in Hashbury. Will speed up when 
                  shot. A passenger will try to shoot down the plane from the 
                  speeding van.

    >>Target #4 - Rides a motorcycle and starts in King's. Will speed up when 
                  shot at. A passenger will shoot at the plane from the 
                  speeding bike.

    >>Target #5 - Drives a van and starts in Downtown. Will bail when shot 
                  at. Will not attack the plane on foot.

  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 strategy 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 
  then angle left. You should see Target #2. 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 Target #1. 
  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 then 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 then you should see Target 
  #3 which will attack you when it is shot at. Once you see him then 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 then 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 Target #5. This 
  target is the one most likely to get out of range by going north and by 
  destroying him quickly will keep things manageable.

  When you see him then dive while shooting at him. By the time you get to 
  him then his van should 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 your plane while on the ground and kill him. Another 
  option is to land behind him then shoot up his van to destroy it.

  After that van is taken care of then lift off and go after Target #4. 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, 
  then he will quickly speed off (and, if you are at an intersection, then 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, then 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).

  Look and see on the map where the remaining two couriers are. Then land on 
  the ground near their position and let them come to you. They should still 
  be fairly close to Zero RC. Once you see a courier then angle your plane 
  and shoot them when they get close enough to you.

  When you kill them both then fly up and land on Zero's rooftop to 
  successfully complete the mission.

  0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0

  Because you can glide without using fuel then this mission becomes much 
  easier. I usually try to get rid of the most difficult targets first so, 
  once I lift off from the roof of Zero RC, then I turn north and head for 
  Target #4.

  I use the throttle just enough to get up above the buildings and then let 
  go so I can glide. When I get to Target #4 then I land behind them so I can 
  destroy them. This is actually the most difficult part of this mission.
  Even though you are on the ground and just behind them they are tough to 
  destroy. And they are quite good with their machine guns too.

  Once I know that they are past a signal light and going straight down a 
  street then I let out a long burst of machine gun fire. If they end up 
  being destroyed by that initial barrage, good. If not then I just let them 
  get way ahead then fly back up and get high above the street.

  Once I am in glide mode then I chase them down but remain way behind them 
  so I can limit the damage they do. After they have been destroyed then I 
  move on to Target #5 in Downtown.

  You can either land behind him or dive down while shooting to destroy 
  Target #5. From there, I go back to Hashbury and go after Target #3 which 
  is the second hardest to destroy.

  Keep way behind him while firing, but remain in glide mode, so you can 
  limit the damage he does to you. After getting rid of him then I go after 
  the remaining two targets.

  I usually go after Target #2 next. After taking care of him then I finish 
  up by landing behind Target #1 and then fire. I turn the plane slightly 
  while on the ground to aim my guns so I can get rid of the rider before he 
  can do any real damage to me.

  After all of the targets are destroyed then I fly back up the roof of Zero 
  RC to successfully complete the mission. If you are real good at flying, 
  and knowing when to glide, then you can complete this mission with at least 
  80% fuel remaining. Some people have been known to do this mission with as 
  little as 5% fuel consumed.

  Zero and Berkley engage in one last battle to determine who stays in San 
  Fierro.....

0======0
| Notes \
0=======================>

  Glen T. Winstein says that the BradyGuide suggests dropping a bomb on 
  Berkley's helicopter at its base, when it is picking up a barrel, to 
  destroy it and prevent him from dropping any more barrels on the path. 

  However, doing it that way is difficult because Berkley's helicopter is 
  moving around when it is picking up a barrel and you have to score a direct 
  hit to destroy it. Still, this information still made this mission much 
  easier because there is another place where it is easier to destroy 
  Berkley's helicopter.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  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 grab 
  it.

  In Zero's base there are five metal planks and a regenerating 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 then 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 get the bomb and 
  go forward (west on the compass). Ahead of you are two small hills. Go to 
  the one on the left and hover over the road near it. Hover high and angle 
  the camera so you are looking down on your shadow.

  This is where Berkley will drop a barrel. As he hovers and drops down to 
  place the barrel then gently move above him and drop your bomb on Berkley's 
  helicopter to destroy it. It is important to point out that, unlike 
  yourself, Berkley only has one helicopter so, after destroying it, then he 
  can no longer drop barrels on the path. This will make things much easier.

  After destroying Berkley's helicopter then grab the barrel he dropped, head 
  back toward Zero's base, drop the barrel in the water, then turn north and 
  grab the barrel that is currently blocking Zero's RC Bandit.

  From here, head west toward Berkley's base and to the nearest tank. 
  Although it is suggested that you use the bomb to destroy the tanks, you 
  can use the barrel to destroy them as well.

  However, it will take two drops of the barrel to get the tank to start 
  flaming so it will explode (the first drop will damage it). But it is 
  faster to drop the barrel on the tank twice then to fly back to the base to 
  grab a bomb and fly back to the tank.

  So, when you get to the first tank, then drop the barrel from a good height 
  onto the tank then drop down to pick up the barrel, rise back up, then drop 
  it again onto the tank.

  When you hear the whoosh of the flame, which indicates that the tank is 
  about to explode, then head north to the road curve and pick up the barrel 
  there. This will also get you away from the tank so you don't get damaged 
  in the explosion and further clear the path of obstacles.

  At this point you should hear Zero complain about the first bridge gap. 
  Leave him alone for now.

  After you pick up this new barrel then head to the tank closest to 
  Berkley's base. Use the barrel drop method to destroy this tank then head 
  southeast and grab the barrel near the last tank.

  Go to the last tank and destroy it with the barrel. After you hear the 
  whoosh of the flame then head back to your base and grab a plank. Fly to 
  where Zero is at and drop the plank to bridge the gap. Next, fly back to 
  your base and grab another plank and bridge the second bridge gap.

  After that then go and make sure that there are no more barrels in the path 
  and clear any that are. Then sit back and watch Zero's RC Bandit proceed.
  After Zero's RC Bandit enters Berkley's base then Zero will finally banish 
  Berkley from San Fierro once and for all and successfully complete the 
  mission.

  This will also finish up all of the Zero RC Asset Missions. You will earn a 
  Money Icon outside Zero RC that will generate maximum revenue of $5,000 per 
  day. You will also open up the Beefy Baron mini-game. 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, then 
  you can get rid of it by playing through the mini-game.

  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 then you 
  will fail the mission.

  After the valet gets out of the car then cap him and 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 
  then jack it from him. You now have two and a half minutes to get back to 
  the Xoomer Garage Safehouse 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 then you have to go all the 
  way back to the garage. After you get back to the parking garage entrance 
  then park the car in the designated spot. From there, go back up to the red

Go to the Calton Heights Safehouse 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) then 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 the mission then you'll see
a Damage Bonus which starts at 45. If you damage the car then 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 fifteen). You get extra time
with these bonuses. If you're good then you can get up to about a minute of
time with each car parked.

Killing the other valets will get you twenty second penalty. The game will
eventually replace the killed valets. But it will do so only at the
beginning of the next level. So you can kill the valets early on and not have
any competition for cars for the remainder of the level.

This mission is very easy and should be completed in one try. One tip: when
you get a car then 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 receive at the end of each level:

  >>Level 1
    *******
      Three cars in two minutes with a $100 tip.

  >>Level 2
    *******
      Four cars in two minutes with a $200 tip.

  >>Level 3
    *******
      Five cars in two minutes with a $300 tip.

  >>Level 4
    *******
      Six cars in two minutes with a $400 tip.

  >>Level 5
    *******
      Seven cars in two minutes.

After finishing Level 5 then you will successfully complete the Valet Parking
Mission. You will gain a Money Icon in front of the Vank Hoff Hotel that will
generate maximum revenue of $2,000 per day.

It should be noted that most of the cars used on the Valet Mission are
Feltzers. If you don't already have one for the upcoming Import / Export Car
Lists then you can get one from here after completing this mission (info
courtesy of Phil Carter).

| Notes \
0=======================>

  I had some suggestions from reader Jarred Buttle about trapping the workers 
  inside a TransFender shop. However, I found that method to be a little 
  complex but he had some additional ideas that I played with and made some 
  tweaks to the overall strategy.

  I also have suggestions from readers Bubba Zanetti and Tyler Wheeler.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  There are six portable buildings that you have to destroy in order to scare 
  off the construction firm. The game will say you'll also need a Dozer but 
  there are other ways to do things.

  You also have the option of using the giant crane. The most you can destroy 
  is three buildings, however, it will keep the workers off of your case for 
  awhile.

  The moment you either grab any vehicle, destroy a building with a crane, or 
  attack the workers, then 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 Explosives to destroy. In addition, reader Tyler 
  Wheeler states that you can also use the RPG on the buildings.

  But using the Remote Explosives to destroy the buildings is the best way to 
  quickly do this part of the mission. Go to each building and place a Remote 
  Explosive on it. For those with explosive barrels place one by the barrels.
  You will notice that throwing a Remote Grenade will *NOT* cause the timer 
  to start or make the workers attack you.

  After you place a Remote Explosive at all six buildings then get to a safe 
  distance, preferably on high ground, and detonate. When you do then you 
  will have destroyed three right off the bat and leaves only three weakened 
  buildings to destroy when the timer starts.

  At this point you will get attacked by the workers including one in a 
  Dozer. Being on high ground on one of the ruined buildings will help you in 
  getting a good angle to kill the workers. This is especially good for the 
  one in the Dozer. Snipe him with any weapon before heading back down and 
  using the Remote Explosives to destroy the remaining three buildings.

  After destroying the six portable buildings then 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 
  then he goes and hides in the Porta-Potty.

  You can use a Dozer or, as Jarred Buttle suggested, one of the Cement 
  Trucks Dozer and push the Porta-Potty (with the Foreman inside) into the 
  large hole.

  After that is done then move away from the red circle and get out (if you 
  the Dozer), enter the nearby Cement Truck and back up to the red circle). 
  If you are using the Cement Truck to push the Porta-Potty into the hole 
  then just turn around and back up into the red circle.

  When you do that then you will see a cutscene of you burying the Foreman 
  and successfully completing the mission.

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 complete the Driving School.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
**IMPORTANT: You *MUST* successfully complete the Driving School in order for 
             the Wang's Auto Asset to open and for the mission "Zeroing In" 
             to appear. The earliest that it can open is right after 
             completion of the mission "Yay Ka-Boom-Boom".
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
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 then this will subtract points 
      from your Overall Score.

When you pass a test then you'll earn either a Bronze, Silver, or Gold
certificate.

At 70% score (the minimum), you'll earn a Bronze and pass the test. By
getting a Bronze in all twelve tests you will successfully complete the
Driving School, get an increase in Driving Skill, get closer to 100%
Completion, and start spawning the Super GT in the Driving School parking
lot.

At 90% score, you'll earn a Silver. By getting at least a Silver in all
twelve tests then you will start spawning the Bullet in the Driving School
parking lot.

And at 100% (a perfect score), you'll earn a Gold. By getting a Gold in all
twelve tests then you will start spawning the Hotknife in the Driving School
parking lot. It is important to note that you do *NOT* need to get all Golds
for 100% Completion. Just get at least a Bronze in all twelve tests.

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.

       <0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+<<##0##>>+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0>

  >>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 you get to the assigned 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. Perseverance 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 manage to land perfectly then brake gently to slow the 
      car down some so you can straighten it out and 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, 
      then 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 then 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 then 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!

At the Xoomer Garage Safehouse you'll notice a dragon-like symbol. This will
begin a group of missions concerning the Loco Syndicate. This is the group
responsible for supplying Big Smoke with the crack that he is distributing in
Los Santos. Carl and Cesar are teaming up with Woozie and his clan in trying
to get rid of this Syndicate.

  CJ gets a call from Cesar who is following on a tip from his cousin 
  concerning a Balla car going to San Fierro to get drugs to take back to Los 
  Santos. Cesar has been following them for awhile. CJ wants to find out 
  who's been supplying the Ballas and goes to meet Cesar.....

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Get any car, or helicopter (which is faster), and meet Cesar who is waiting 
  at FleischBerg Beers near Blueberry. Get into his car and then drive to 
  Angel Pine where these guys are to meet. When you get there then stop at 
  the Lovin' A Loan building and climb onto the roof. Go to the pink circle.

  Here, you will be given a Camera. You need to zoom in, using the L2 and R2 
  Buttons (PS2) or the Y and X Buttons (Xbox) in conjunction with the Target 
  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 
  un-named 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 
  un-named person will get out of the car but he appears to be a pimp. Take 
  his picture.

  After taking the picture of the pimp then 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 then the mission 
  will end successfully.

  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.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  --SMG.
  --Heat-Seeking RPG.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Go to the Pleasure Domes under the Gant Bridge. Once there then Carl will 
  introduce himself as a new guy looking for work. After he impresses Jizzy 
  then he 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 then 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 and run 
  over 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 then take down both punters who are attacking the girls. 
  After that then 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 then 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 down 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 then 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 RPG and lock in on the limo. When locked on then 
  launch a couple of rockets to destroy the limo.

  After that then the other vehicle stops and the occupants come out to 
  confront you. Kill them to complete the task. After that then CJ will call 
  Jizzy. Jizzy will be pleased with your work. However, the Pimpmobile will 
  be posted on an APB and Carl can keep the car as long as he keeps it away 
  from Jizzy and the club. After the call ends then the mission will be 
  successfully completed.

  You will also have a 2-Star Wanted Rating you need to get rid of before 
  proceeding to the next mission. In addition, a "W" mission icon appears in 
  Chinatown. This is where you pick up Woozie's set of missions but, for now, 
  I will continue with the Loco Syndicate.

  After Carl is introduced to T-Bone Mendez by Jizzy then they have to go out 
  and rescue an ambushed shipment.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  --SMG.
  --Sniper Rifle.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  You need to go over to the Pleasure Domes to pick up this mission. After 
  the introduction then Carl needs to go to where the ambushed van is at. It 
  is under the bridge not far from the Pay 'N' Spray. After you get there 
  then you will be placed on a FCR-900 and you have to chase the four 
  ambushers.

  However, according to Skipp Kennedy, there is a slightly different way you 
  can do this. Go on top of the hill north of the Pay 'N' Spray (this is also 
  over the small tunnel beneath you).

  From here, you can see the ambushed van and most of the ambushers. Use your 
  Sniper Rifle and kill one of the ambushers. You will automatically be 
  transported and placed onto an FCR-900. The remaining three bikers will 
  speed off.

  Turn around and grab the package of the biker you killed with your Sniper 
  Rifle. This method reduces the number of bikers you will need to chase 
  around San Fierro.

  You need to chase one of the bikers, get up close behind him and press 
  Attack to snatch it from his bike. But he will then try to follow you and 
  shoot you. However, according to Bragon the Bat, you can shoot off the 
  riders then grab the packages. This way, you won't have to worry about them 
  following you.

  After acquiring the packages from all four bikers then take them to the 
  Pleasure Domes. After you get there then the mission will end successfully.

  It should be noted that the FCR-900 you use is on one of the Import / 
  Export Car Lists (done later in the game). After the mission then go and 
  save it in one your of your garages so you can use it later (info courtesy 
  of Phil Carter).

  Mike. Mike is inside a another van that has been ambushed and now needs to

  When you get to the part where you have to destroy the van then just get 
  back in the car you used to get here and drive away. You can get Wanted 
  Ratings but the Cops will completely ignore you.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  You need to go over to the Pleasure Domes to pick up this mission. After 
  the cutscene ends then 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 then 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 then 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 then 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 from 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.

  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. After 
  you find the van that Mike has been hiding in then you will need to chase 
  the van. You can't shoot it because, if you destroy it, then 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 then 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.

  After you get there then you will be hit with a 3-Star Wanted Rating. Go 
  over to the Pay 'N' Spray to get rid of it. From there, head back to the 
  Pleasure Domes.

  And, according to Bragon the Bat, if you get a Wanted Rating after you get 
  rid of the initial 3-Star Wanted Rating, then the game will tell you to go 
  back to the Pay 'N' Spray. But you can ignore that and just go straight to 
  the Pleasure Domes. After you get to the Pleasure Domes then the mission 
  will end successfully.

  When you get to the Sanchez, do *NOT* get on the bike. Just leave the area 
  and go exploring. Cops will still be generated but you cannot get Wanted 
  Ratings with this exploit.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Go on over to the Xoomer Gas Station in Easter Basin where T-Bone will be 
  waiting in a sedan. After being interrogated by T-Bone then CJ has to drive 
  the car to meet a shipment.

  When you get to the shipment then you will see a Sanchez and a RPG. 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 
  RPG 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 RPG 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 then you need to escort the van to the factory 
  which is next door to the Driving School. After the van has been safely 
  escorted to the factory then the mission will be successfully completed.

  Tenpenny and Pulaski pay CJ a visit at the Xoomer Garage. They want CJ to 
  kill a snooping reporter and the snitch that is supplying him with 
  information.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  Sniper Rifle.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Go get the Sniper Rifle that Tenpenny has hid in the nearby Construction 
  Site. Even if you already have a Sniper Rifle you must get this one before 
  you can proceed any further.

  After acquiring the Sniper Rifle then you need to make your way to 
  Cranberry Station where the reporter is about to get on the train. When you 
  get close enough then the train will depart for Market Station in Los 
  Santos and you have to follow it.

  However, if you use the nearby Sanchez, then you don't have to wait for the 
  train to start. Just get on the tracks and go ahead of the train. The 
  Sanchez is faster than the train and you can get a nice head start.

  If you decide not to use the Sanchez then you can get a car and speed your 
  way to the station or, if you have your pilot's license, then go to the 
  airport and use a Maverick. 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.

  After you get to Los Santos then you need to get to Market Station. If you 
  used the Sanchez then you can climb up the stairs leading out of Market 
  Station and use it to follow the reporter (thanks to Ron Schock). If you 
  used the chopper then you have to land and get a car.

  When the reporter arrives at the station then 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 then the reporter will 
  abandon the interview and you will fail the mission.

  Reader Shee Soon Theng noticed that you can fill the Spook-O-Meter when the 
  cab is stopped at a red light but doesn't fill up when traveling even if 
  you are at the same distance. Because of this it is best to remain almost a 
  full block away from the cab.

  The cab will take different paths on each attempt. But it will always 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 then chase him down and kill him with any other 
  weapon. He can't really get away because he's on the pier. After both of 
  them are dead then the mission will end successfully.

  If you thought about using the taxi trick used in the mission "Cutting The 
  Grass" in "Grand Theft Auto III" (where you can get a taxi and drive the 
  rat yourself to Portland Harbor), forget it. It won't work here. If you 
  also thought of going to the Santa Maria Pier ahead of the cab, forget that 
  too. You will fail the mission.

  CJ needs to get the phone from Jizzy after he makes the call then ambush 
  the meet and take down the Balla pushers. Cesar gives CJ the use of his 
  Silenced 9mm Pistol to help in the mission.....

  I had three people (Angela, Phil Carter and Steven Eng) tell me that you 
  can shoot out the tires of the Pimpmobile before you enter the Pleasure 
  Domes. This would make the mission much easier since it is impossible for 
  him to get away. However, I did a couple of tweaks with interesting 
  results.....

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  This mission can only be picked up between 20:00 and 6:00.

  To start, go over to the Pleasure Domes. There will be a couple of guards 
  by the door and a red circle. When you enter the red circle then you will 
  be instructed to go up the nearby scaffolding and enter through the 
  skylight. To limit any interference, run over the guards before entering 
  the red circle.

  Before going up the scaffolding, shoot out all four tires on the nearby 
  Pimpmobile. But you should also move the Pimpmobile so that the front of 
  the car is up against the right side of the nearby limo. After that, go up 
  the scaffolding so you can jump down to the skylight and enter the Domes. 
  Now make your way down to the bar area.

  Once there, a cutscene will play showing CJ confronting Jizzy. Jizzy will 
  then run for his life. Use any weapon to clear the club of guards before 
  exiting the club to chase Jizzy.

  When Jizzy leaves the club and enters the Pimpmobile then he will try to 
  drive forward but the limo is in the way. With the tires shot out he won't 
  be able to back up very fast so run over to the Pimpmobile and jack him 
  from the vehicle. Then go into drive-by mode and shoot him until he dies.

  Another option is to just blow up the Pimpmobile outright. When Jizzy 
  leaves the club then there will be a Pizzaboy from Well Stacked Pizza 
  sitting where the Pimpmobile was. Jizzy will knock the rider off then drive 
  away.

  The Pizzaboy is slower than the Pimpmobile plus he is the only one on it. 
  With the Pimpmobile there is also a guard who comes along and shoots back 
  at you.

  Enter into a nearby car in the parking lot and go after Jizzy. You can 
  knock Jizzy off of the Pizzaboy and run him over to kill him. If you can't 
  run him over then go and jack the Pizzaboy. He won't try to get any other 
  vehicle so you can either run him over with the Pizzaboy or shoot him 
  from it.

  Regardless of method, collect the phone Jizzy drops when he dies to 
  successfully complete the mission.

  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?

  When you start the mission then just walk away and explore. Don't even go 
  up to Cesar. Cops will still be generated but you cannot get Wanted Ratings 
  with this exploit.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Go to the red circle across the street from Pier 69 to pick up this 
  mission. When you enter the red circle then 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 then 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 then you fail the mission. After 
  killing off T-Bone's security then 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 
  Toreno 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 ends then switch to your SMG and 
  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 
  with your SMG. If you do this quickly enough then he won't be able to hurt 
  you. Don't worry about Cesar, he'll catch up.

  After killing T-Bone then 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 complete the mission.

  If you have any RPG ammo left over from "Outrider" then you can also blow 
  up the boats and Ryder.

  Woozie gives CJ information concerning Toreno. Toreno is at a helipad 
  Downtown loading boxes up onto a helicopter and preparing to cut out. CJ 
  decides to investigate.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  Heat-Seeking RPG.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  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 RPG.

  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 then you 
  will hear a couple of explosions. The gunman on the helipad with the RPG is 
  firing at you but can't hit you. He will simply fire into the helipad.

  Switch to your Heat-Seeking RPG and, while ignoring the nearby gunmen, 
  climb up the stairs. When you get near the top then you will see the 
  helicopter take off. After the cutscene ends then immediately lock-on to 
  the helicopter.

  When the reticle turns from green to red then 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.

  If you miss that opportunity then you will have other chances to bring him 
  down. If you chase him you will find that the helicopter will pause every 
  so often allowing you a chance to destroy it.

  According to Siddharth Sharma, if you keep following the chopper, then it 
  will eventually land at your Whetstone Safehouse (although it will take 
  awhile to get there). Stay far away and fire several Heat Seeking RPGs at 
  the helicopter before it has a chance to fly away again.

  As you drive to the Blood Feather Triad storehouse on the opposite side of 
  the block then Woozie will tell CJ about some troublesome Vietnamese gangs 
  that have been making him nervous. When you get there then follow Woozie 
  into the alleyway. Eventually you will 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 
  they come 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.

  At this point 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 then 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 
  both cars then take him back to his place to successfully complete the 
  mission.

  Woozie introduces CJ to Ran Fa Li, the head of the Red Gecko Tong. He also 
  informs CJ that the gang responsible for the attack on the Blood Feather 
  Triad was a Vietnamese gang known as the Da Nang Boys. Ran Fa Li needs a 
  package retrieved from the Airport and Woozie recommends CJ for the 
  job.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  SMG.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  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 then 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.

  Go straight and turn left to enter Lot E. When another truck cuts you off 
  then turn left so you can go back to the main path then turn right to exit 
  the parking garage.

  Turn left, or right, and either run over the guy in the middle of the road 
  or make him move out of the way. Next is a roadblock with a truck and a 
  couple of gunmen. You can either go right or left of the truck and run over 
  the gunman.

  As you near the airport entrance then you will be ambushed by a couple of 
  motorcycles (each has a driver and a gunner). The thing to do is to stop 
  just underneath the airport entrance sign and get out of the car. Switch to 
  your SMG and kill at least both gunners or both drivers or all four.

  After that then get back into the car and hang the first right to go north 
  along the street that goes past the Easter Basin Naval Station and Pier 69 
  to go almost uncontested (save for one car that tries to intercept you at 
  Pier 69 - stay on the left side of your side of the street so he can't hit 
  you) to the drop-off point.

  When you get to the red circle then the mission will be successfully 
  completed.

  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 then 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 then you will successfully complete the mission.

  If you fail the mission during the checkpoint course then you can use the 
  Trip Skip feature when you redo the mission. In addition, the Rancher is 
  also one of the cars on the Import / Export Car Lists (done later). You can 
  save the Rancher for that use in any garage if you want.

  After swimming through the maze then climb ashore and begin exploring. 
  However, the constant fog throughout this mission will make it hard to see 
  if you want to do some flying.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  You need to start this mission between 20:00 and 6:00.

  You need to get to the blip which is east of Pier 69 in Esplanade North. 
  From there, jump into the water, swim out of the rock formation and into 
  open water. When you swim out of the rock formation then swim south and 
  toward the small platform. Stay under the surface for as long as possible.

  When you surface then a cutscene will play informing you of the Da Nang 
  patrol boats. If they see you in the water then they will shoot you. When 
  you get to the small platform then get up and switch to your Heat-Seeking 
  RPG. 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 then swim to the 
  small island. When you get onto the island then go to the northeast part of 
  the island and actually go into the water up to your waist. Aim toward the 
  east part of the ship and you should be able to lock onto the boat sitting 
  there.

  Destroy him when the reticle turns red. Go back onto the island and aim 
  north. You should be able to lock onto the boat on the west side of the 
  ship. Fire at the boat when the reticle turns red.

  A side benefit is that the explosions will knock out the searchlights on 
  the ship. But, with all of the boats destroyed, then it doesn't matter 
  because you will not get any interference when you swim to the ship.

  Swim toward the landing platform on the north side of the ship and head up 
  to the deck. Kill all of the guards you encounter with your Silenced 9mm 
  Pistol as you head to the back of the ship. You don't have to sneak around 
  because all these goons have Knives so they are of little threat to you.

  When you get to the back of the ship then 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 complete the mission.

  After landing in the water then you can go and do some exploring without 
  generating any Wanted Ratings. This was pointed out to me by David Sears 
  and Dr. Simon Chan. One interesting thing about this exploit: nobody says 
  anything or scream when you run them over or shoot them.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  As you fly to the container ship, you are given control of a Mini-Gun. When 
  you get to the ship then you are attacked by armed guards. Use the Mini-Gun 
  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 then 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 9mm Pistol and SMG ammo. I also went to the nearby 
  Cluckin' Bell and regained my lost health. Then I went back to Easter Bay 
  Airport to pick up some Heat-Seeking RPGs.

  After getting what I needed then I went back into the water and swam to the 
  ship.

  When you go onto the deck then crouch and use the Silenced 9mm Pistol to 
  take down 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 Tec-9 ammo and a Health Icon in various nooks.

  Soon you will find a way into the interior of the ship. After the cutscene 
  ends then 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 Tec-9 
  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 then 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 then you will be told to go back up and 
  onto the bridge. You need to kill everybody on the bridge including the 
  leader (Snakehead).

  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 then switch to your Heat-Seeking RPG and 
  aim at the bridge. Launch a rocket and you will kill Snakehead without ever 
  needing to enter the bridge area (somebody posted a topic where a plane 
  crashed into the bridge that killed everybody and that is what inspired me 
  to try this tactic out).

  After killing Snakehead then you will be prompted to go to the freed 
  prisoners who are waiting for you below deck. When you get back to them 
  then you will successfully complete the mission.

  Woozie informs CJ that the Syndicate still has a crack factory in 
  operation. If he takes it out then he will put them out of business for 
  good.....

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  When you start the mission then you'll get a call from one of Woozie's men. 
  They are rigging a car with explosives so you can destroy 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 then you will see a couple of guards.

  Kill them to get the gate to open. When the gate opens then 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 then drive over to the main building. When you 
  get inside then you have to drive through the building and park the car in 
  the red circle. Arm the bomb.

  Now you have forty seconds to get out of the building. But there will be 
  additional gunmen to deal with. Although you can quickly kill the gunmen 
  with your SMG if you want, I find it best to ignore them and just run for a 
  door. When you get to a door then 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 and the second group will be 
  at the next set of container crates. Kill them and continue.

  When you get to the gates then a car will drive up. Kill the two occupants 
  when they come out. When you get near the car then 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 then drive over to the Garage to successfully complete 
  the mission.

  $25,000 plus Respect Gained.

  In addition, you can now purchase 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 then you have shut down the drug 
  courier side-missions. You will also get a phone call from a mysterious 
  person using an electronic voice masker. He has information on Sweet and 
  demands that CJ go over to a ranch in Tierra Robada.

  And this will 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 at the southern edge
of Colorado Springs, Colorado and is also one of the largest Army bases in
the United States. Fort Carson is also my birthplace (4/24/1967).

Las Venturas, based on Las Vegas, is every bit as glitzy as its 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.

Now let's get started by going over the.....

                curve that goes south then turn left and off the road.

                Climb the hill and stop when you get to the cliff edge. From 
                here, turn right and you will start to head down to a lower

[SMR-Y41] - Location: Underneath the pier at Sherman Reservoir just southwest 
                      of Valle Ocultado.
            Map: (A-3).
            Directions: At the center of Valle Ocultado is the Tee Pee Motel. 
                        Directly south across the entrance is a path leading 
                        to a couple of buildings at the north shore of 
                        Sherman Reservoir.

                        There is a pier at the south end of the large 
                        building (with a Shotgun Weapon Icon at the end). The 
                        Oyster can be found underneath this pier.

0---------------------------------------------------------------------------0

[BNT-Y44] - Location: Between the beach and a boat.
            Map: (A-4).
            Directions: From the Verdant Meadows Aircraft Graveyard 
                        Safehouse, head straight north, climb the hill, and 
                        to the road fork. Take the north road and head east.
                        When you get to the sharp road curve that goes south 
                        then turn left and off the road. Climb the hill and 
                        stop when you get to the cliff edge.

                        From here, turn west and you will start to head down 
                        to a lower plateau. On this lower plateau are some 
                        small trees and lots of bushes.

                        If you are in the right place then you should see a 
                        Police Bribe here. Just to the northeast of this 
                        point is another incline that leads down to a beach.
                        When you get to this beach then look north. You 
                        should see a boat. The Oyster can be found between 
                        the beach and the boat.

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.
And, as before, you do *NOT* need to get all Golds to get 100% but the tests
in the Boat School are 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.

      Reader Shee Soon Theng had this observation based on the PC AO version:

        "Was working on Gold for Basic Seamanship for the boat school, very 
         frustrating. While looking at vids online how to do it, noticed that 
         the timer on some, I'm assuming they're console versions, flashed 
         zero before counting, but the player was able to start at the flash. 
         My version, PC AO, the timer starts at 0 and goes right to 1.

         This means that my version has a little less time to get started, 
         and less time to kill the speed once you get close enough to stop 
         between the buoys. I then thought, "Well, what if I could kill my 
         speed without sacrificing distance?" So i used the 6 seconds to to a 
         very shallow 'S', just quick, small left turn, then using right turn 
         to help get back in line and straight for the buoys. This keep my 
         engine power low enough so I could stop quicker and sooner inside 
         the buoys. I got 9.64s on trying that for the first time! :D

         Oh, you mentioned under 10 seconds for Gold, which is true but not 
         specific. The absolute maximum for Gold is 9.69 seconds. Was stuck 
         at 9.74 for the longest time."

  >>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 then pull back on the stick to help 
      you get extra air. Jumping over 65 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.

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 one.

There are a total of eight missions but only the first six were available at
the end of the mission "Tanker Commander". I decided to do the entire list
when the Desert / Las Venturas area is opens up for this is when the last two
missions become available.

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.

The last two missions are harder than the first six because they combine
mission types. In addition, you have to go a really long way to drop off your
cargo.

       <0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+<<##0##>>+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0>

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

  >>Mission #2
    **********
      --Type: Fragile.
      --Bonus: $1,500.
      --Notes: Your destination is still fairly 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).

  >>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 then you will finish the RS Haul
Trucking Asset Mission and gain a Money Icon in front of RS Haul that will
generate maximum revenue of $2,000 per day.

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 fifty
of them.

In addition, the following weapons will spawn at the Four Dragons Casino on
the south part of The Strip (where you'll do missions later on in the game):

  >>Combat Shotgun
  >>Remote Explosives
  >>M4
  >>SMG

Listed below, by neighborhood, is the Horseshoe list for Las Venturas. The
Map co-ordinates refer to the printed map that comes included with the game
disc. Landmarks are based off of icons on the in-game map, easily notable
land or city features, or other Horseshoes.

It should be noted that, if you use an Early Exploration Exploit, Safehouses,
Gyms and Arena Events won't appear on the in-game map (consult the map that
comes with your copy). The same goes for Ammu-Nations if you do an Early
Exploration Exploit before the mission "Doberman".

           Directions: Go west on the highway from the northwest end of the 
                       Pilson Intersection and you should see the overhead 
                       road signs for San Fierro and Bone County. Just west 
                       of that is the "Welcome to Fabulous Las Venturas" 
                       sign. The Horseshoe can be found underneath this sign.

[LVN-H2] - Location: Behind the main spire of the Wedding Chapel in southeast 
                     Las Venturas.
           Map: (C-6).
           Directions: From the Rockshore East Safehouse, head north through 
                       the nearby three-way intersection and turn east at the 
                       road curve. Continue forward through the first 
                       three-way intersection then turn left, and go north, 
                       at the next three-way intersection.

                       Cross the bridge and go over Julius Thruway South then 
                       stop at the next three-way intersection. At the 
                       southwest part of this intersection is the Wedding 
                       Chapel.

                       The Horseshoe can be found near the top of the Chapel 
                       behind the main spire. Use a car and park it to either 
                       side of the entrance then climb the car and onto the 
                       roof to gain access to the Horseshoe.

                        You should also see the tunnel entrance. Go down and 
                        into the tunnel heading north.

                        Stay close to the wall so you don't get run over by a 
                        train. Continue going forward and, about two-thirds 
                        of the way through the tunnel, you should find the 
                        Horseshoe.

            Directions: At the southwest corner of the Old Venturas Strip 
                        Cluckin' Bell is a three-way intersection. Head west

            **NOTE: This Horseshoe, which is on the east part where the two 
                    billboards meet, can only be obtained by helicopter, 
                    Parachute, or Jetpack. If you use a helicopter the best 
                    one to use is the Seasparrow which can be found at the 
                    base of the Sherman Dam or at the shore due north of the 
                    Verdant Meadows Aircraft Graveyard.

                    Carefully land the copter on top of the billboards so you 
                    can fall onto the Horseshoe upon exiting. Thanks goes to 
                    Andrew Lennard for that tip.

            **NOTE: Although this Horseshoe can be best acquired by 
                    helicopter, Parachute, or Jetpack, you can use a large 
                    vehicle to climb onto the rooftop.

                    Grab a Packer (one can be found in the industrial area in 
                    Spinybed) and head to The Clown's Pocket. To the east of 
                    the tent is the main casino building. Go along the north 
                    side of the tent. You will see a corner that is part of 
                    the adjacent casino building.

                    Aim the Packer and go into the corner at an angle. The 
                    right side of the Packer should be right up against the 
                    wall. Climb onto the Packer then climb onto the roof. Go 
                    around to the south side of the tent.

                    There should be a small ledge on the southwest side of 
                    the tent that you can use to get to the west side where 
                    it can be found. Thanks goes to Duke for the inspiration.

            Directions: From Horseshoe [GGC-H39], go north and back to the 
                        road then head east and cross Julius Thruway West.

                        After crossing Julius Thruway West then you should 
                        see a white wall to your right that borders the LVA 
                        Freight Depot area. Just before you get to the road 
                        curve going south you should then see an entrance 
                        leading into this area.

                        Turn right through the entrance and go all the way to 
                        a small strip of dirt with small trees. To your 
                        right, at this point, is the yellow Sumo building.

                        Continue forward and to the next strip of dirt with 
                        large trees. When you get there then turn west to go 
                        into a narrow alley that is between the south side of 
                        the Sumo building and the nearby wall. The Horseshoe

            Directions: From Horseshoe [LFD-H40], head east then turn right 
                        at the corner and cross over the small dirt strip 
                        with large trees. Continue forward and turn left at 
                        the curved wall corner. To your left should be a 
                        large building.

                        Just ahead of you should be a docking bay for this 
                        building. Continue past this bay and to the *THIRD*

            **NOTE: This Horseshoe can only be acquired by helicopter, 
                    Parachute, or Jetpack. You can fly to and land a 
                    helicopter on the platform to collect the Horseshoe 
                    (thanks to Shee Soon Theng for that info).

[CAL-H44] - Location: On top of the tall Come-A-Lot sign at the west side of 
                      the parking lot.
            Map: (B-6).
            -----------------------------------------------------------------
            **NOTE: This Horseshoe can only be acquired by helicopter, 
                    Parachute, or Jetpack.

                    If you use a helicopter it is best to use the Seasparrow 
                    found at the bottom (east side) of The Sherman Dam or at 
                    the shore due north of the Verdant Meadows Aircraft 
                    Graveyard.

                    You need to approach from the north and make sure that 
                    the pontoons are barely above the top of the sign as you 
                    make the final approach. The reason for this is that the 
                    blades will hit the red spires but can clip through the 
                    small towers they sit upon.

                    This little trick will allow you to land the chopper on 
                    the top of the sign (thanks to Shee Soon Theng for that 
                    info).
            -----------------------------------------------------------------
            ++IMPORTANT: If you use a Parachute to drop down to the Horseshoe 
                         you may want to make sure your health is at its 
                         maximum.

                         If your health is not at its maximum then you will 
                         die when you fall off the sign and to the ground 
                         below after collecting it. If your health is at its 
                         maximum then you will have a sliver of it left when 
                         you fall to the ground.

[CAL-H45] - Location: On a windowsill of a red and yellow colored building.
            Map: (B-6).
            Directions: From The Camel's Toe Safehouse entrance, head south 
                        to the three-way intersection with signal lights then 
                        turn left and head east.

                        Go forward until you reach the *THIRD* intersection 
                        then turn right. Go forward for a little bit and you 
                        should see a yellow and brick red building to your 
                        right.

                        There is also an alley at the south side of this 
                        building. Turn right into the alley and stop when you 
                        reach a set of stairs. Go up the stairs and you will 
                        see another set of stairs, against a brick red wall, 
                        ahead of you.

                        To the right of these stairs are three windowsills. 
                        It can be seen in the middle windowsill. Go up the 
                        second set of stairs and jump down into the middle 
                        windowsill to acquire the Horseshoe.

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.

  >>The 360
    *******
      You must do a 360 in less than fifteen 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.

      To do a stoppie you need to go fast on a motorcycle while pushing up on 
      the Left Analog Stick. Then press the Brake Button while letting go of 
      the Accelerator. When the bike tips forward on its front wheel and the 
      rear wheel comes up off the ground then let go of the Brake. This will 
      initiate the stoppie.

      On the consoles 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 then 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.

      On the PC version this becomes much easier. Why? Because of the 
      keyboard controls. On the consoles all of your movements are tied to 
      the analog stick. The stoppie controls are sensitive so if you go even 
      slightly left or right as you push the stick forward during the 
      maneuver then you will screw up the trick.

      But, with the keyboard, you can only go in one direction by pressing 
      the Up Key. You can't screw it up unless you hit any of the other 
      direction keys while doing the stoppie. So it is only a matter of doing 
      the braking and letting go of the gas. This also works with the joypad 
      because of the POV Hat issue - you can use D-Pad Up the same as you 
      would on the keyboard.

  >>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.

      As pointed out with the previous lesson the PC keyboard will make this 
      lesson easier as you can't veer left or right unless you make a 
      mistake.

Parked outside the Redsands East Burger Shot is a moped (Faggio). By getting
on the Faggio then 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 it then 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 will
gain a Money Icon outside the Redsands East Burger Shot that will generate
maximum revenue of $2,000 per day.

At the southwest part of Las Venturas is 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:

  >>Kick Start
    **********
      You can pick this event up on any day except Monday and Wednesday. This 
      event is similar to the Dirt Ring event in "Grand Theft Auto: Vice 
      City". Here you have all kinds of various obstacles to climb and 
      acquire coronas. Unlike the Dirt Ring 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 then you have four minutes to get as many 
      points as possible. You have to get twenty six 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 are 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 then you will spawn the Dune 
      vehicle in front of the stadium. If you decide to do this event later 
      then you will have to break your old score in order to successfully 
      complete the event.

  >>Dirt Track
    **********
      You can only pick up this event on Mondays and Wednesdays. This is a 
      race event where you go up 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 Sub-Machine Gun on the other riders. But they are 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 then 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. 
      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 mission 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 then 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 Level One then 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 then you will get $150 plus 15
extra seconds (in addition to the regular time added). If you don't do this
right then 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 then you will waste valuable time backing the train up.

Upon successful completion of Level Two you will get $50,000 and inch closer
to 100% Completion.

| >LVT13. The Ammu-Nation Challenge                                         |
 \=========================================================================/
            \=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=/

When you opened up the Ammu-Nations after completion of the mission
"Doberman" then you also opened up the Ammu-Nation Challenge. The Challenge
is done on the indoor shooting range of the following Ammu-Nations:

  >>Downtown Los Santos (Los Santos).
  >>Blueberry (Red County).
  >>Palomino Creek (Red County).
  >>Ocean Flats (San Fierro).
  >>El Quebrados (Tierra Robada).
  >>Come-A-Lot (Las Venturas)
  >>Old Venturas Strip (Las Venturas).

The Challenge is comprised of four main stages each using a particular
weapon:

  >>Stage 1 - 9mm Pistol.
  >>Stage 2 - Micro SMG.
  >>Stage 3 - Shotgun.
  >>Stage 4 - AK-47.

However, when you first opened up the Ammu-Nations, only the first two stages
were available. The Shotgun stage becomes available when you open up the
Badlands / San Fierro area and the AK-47 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 then, when you redo the Challenge,
you must start over with the 9mm Pistol and work your way back up again.

Each Weapon Stage is comprised of three smaller stages:

0========0
| Stage 1 \
0=====================================>

  You must shoot off all seven pieces of the stationary target ahead of you 
  in order to destroy it. After destroying the first target then 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.

0========0
| Stage 2 \
0=====================================>

  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.

0========0
| Stage 3 \
0=====================================>

  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 then 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 9mm 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 aggravating especially when you consider that you need to go
through both the 9mm 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) then it gets easier. The computer is not as
aggressive in the AK-47 Weapon Stage.

When you complete the AK-47 Weapon Stage then 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.

**IMPORTANT: You *MUST* successfully complete the Driving School before you 
             are allowed to do the Wang's Auto Asset Missions.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Shortly after you successfully complete the Driving School then you should
get a phone call from Jethro (if you finished the Driving School before
opening up the Desert / Las Venturas area then you should get the call just
after completion of the mission "Yay Ka-Boom-Boom").

Both Jethro and Cesar have compiled a wish-list of cars and need to turn them
around quick. He suggests that CJ purchase the Wang's Auto car dealership not
far from the Xoomer Garage Safehouse to make things look legitimate.

At this point the "CV" icon should now appear at Wang's Autos. After
completing all of the above tasks I went and bought Wang's Autos for
$50,000. When that is done then the "CV" icon will move over to the Xoomer
Garage.

And this begins a string of missions to acquire cars for the new
dealership.....

  Zero comes up with a gadget for tracking the first target vehicle.....

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  You have to chase the target vehicle so you can stop it and steal it. The 
  person in the target vehicle will make occasional phone calls on her cell 
  phone which will allow you to track her. These calls will show as a blip on 
  your radar.

  You need to get to the blip as fast as possible. You will notice that the 
  blip will turn from red to white then white to black. If the blip 
  disappears then the trail will go cold and you will fail the mission.

  Each time you get to a blip a new blip will appear. You have to follow the 
  trail of blips around so you can get an accurate position on the target.
  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 
  crazy while going 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 spinning her out before she gets down to the Ocean Flats area.
  After you spin her out and take her car then drive it over to the Xoomer 
  Garage Safehouse to successfully complete the mission.

  found in Wang's Autos.

  Cesar wants to get two cars sitting in a showroom across town that just 
  happen to be on the acquisition list.....

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Get a car and take Cesar with you to Otto's Autos near Pier 69. After the 
  cutscene ends then drive off the second floor and into the street. If you 
  get too far behind or too far ahead of Cesar then you will fail the 
  mission.

  When you make the first right turn then Cesar will play around with the 
  tram. When he turns left then keep going straight but slow down to match 
  the speed of the tram. This will keep you from getting too far ahead. Cesar 
  will then turn back toward you then turn left again. Keep going straight 
  and to the top of the hill, still going slowly (this will also keep you 
  from smacking into the trolley if you followed Cesar).

  When you get to the top of the hill then turn right and stay just ahead of 
  Cesar. When you turn left again, at the Church in Calton Heights and go 
  into the tunnel, then he will use the Nitro on his car. You don't need to 
  use it on yours. This will help you keep better control of your car. Cesar 
  will zip ahead of you but won't get too far from you.

  After the tunnel then 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 Xoomer Garage Safehouse.

  But, as you get to the top of the hill, then the Cops show up again and the 
  chase resumes. When Cesar turns right then keep going straight and turn 
  right at the next intersection. This will allow you to avoid the car at the 
  bottom of the hill you would run into if you followed Cesar. You will hook 
  up with Cesar again at the bottom of the hill when he turns right.

  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 past the 
  trolley station then Cesar decides to take a shortcut through an alley. But 
  the Cops cut him off and you have to back out.

  After backing out of the alley then Cesar will go through a road under 
  construction. Weave through the obstacles and into the next street. From 
  here, go back to the Xoomer Garage Safehouse to successfully complete the 
  mission.

  Cesar gets a tip from someone that a car that's on a wish list is being 
  loaded up on the Docks. CJ decides to check it out.....

  SMG.

0=========0
| The Plan \
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, then 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. Using the Run and 
  Attack Buttons will drop and raise the magnet respectively. Use the shadow 
  of the magnet to judge its position over an object. Drop the magnet over 
  the object to grab it.

  When you drop the object then press the Attack Button to let go. You also 
  use the Left Analog Stick to rotate the crane arm and move the crane along 
  its tracks. Grab one of the crates and bring it down into the red circle. 
  Then 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 pick up.

  After you get the target car then 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 then 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 Xoomer Garage Safehouse. It should be noted that your 
  reward is tied into the condition of the car. If you damage the car then 
  you will get less money. Take it to the nearby Pay 'N' Spray if you ding 
  the car. When you get to the Xoomer Garage Safehouse then the mission will 
  be successfully completed.

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 dry-dock gates just northeast of the crane. There are three lists to
complete with ten cars on each list. Each list will tell you 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 then you can press Enter Vehicle to view which cars you can
buy. When you start the Exports and Imports Lists you will see that 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 its 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 then 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:

| Patriot \
0=====================================>
| Reward: $40,000 |
0=================0
| Cost: $32,000 |
0===============0

  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 southeast of Easter Bay 
            Airport. 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 any of the Early 
            Exploration Exploits and stored a Patriot at the Xoomer Garage 
            Safehouse while exploring the San Fierro area.

  Description: A Harley-Davidson style motorcycle.
  Spawn Type: Normal.
  Location: There are two locations: on the southwest corner of the

            behind the house right next to the gas station next to RS Haul 
            (Flint County).

            Strangely though, when I tried these locations, then the game 
            would spawn anything *BUT* a Freeway so these two locations may 
            not be too reliable.

            If you completed the Bike School in Las Venturas then you can get 
            the Freeway there. Or you can do the Hippy Shopper Courier Asset 
            Mission and acquire it after completing, or failing, the mission.

  Cesar is frustrated trying to get a target car. The woman driving it won't 
  stop and drives like a maniac. But CJ gets an idea on how to stop her.....

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Get in the marked car. It has been 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 though, 
  you only have three Stingers to use.

  When you get in the car then 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 thus making things a little tricky. However, it's really not 
  that hard to get in front of her to use the Stinger.

  After you pop the tires then get out of your car and go towards hers. You 
  will get a call from Cesar and CJ tells him of the acquisition. CJ will 
  also repair the blown tires. From there, just drive on over to the Xoomer 
  Garage Safehouse to successfully complete the mission.

  $5,000 plus Respect Gained.

       <0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+<<##0##>>+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0>

  In addition, you will complete Wang's Autos Asset and gain a Money Icon at

  it's time to deal with that mysterious person that called earlier.....

  When CJ gets to the ranch then this mystery person wants him to take a 
  certain vehicle out for a spin.....

0=========0
| The Plan \
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 thirty five 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, then 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 then you will be compared on a high score 
  list with previous drivers. The better your time, the more flattering the 
  comments and the more money you get. If you get a time below 4:20 then your 
  reward will be $5,000 (thanks to Randy Russell for that information). This 
  also successfully completes the mission.

  CJ finally meets this mystery person face-to-face: Mike Toreno. The same 
  person who he thought died in a helicopter explosion he caused. It turns 
  out that Toreno is a government agent and needs Carl to do things he can't 
  get caught doing. He also wants Carl to call up Cesar and commandeer a 
  truck for him.....

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  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 then 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 Cesar finally gets in the truck then he will then struggle with the 
  driver. After a few seconds, in which case Cesar will overpower the driver, 
  then the truck stops. Then get in the truck and drive it to the Xoomer 
  Garage Safehouse to successfully complete the mission.

As mentioned earlier, Mike Toreno is a government agent who needs CJ to do
things he can't get caught doing. He has also has some very interesting ideas
on how things should be. Despite the danger involved in being associated with
him CJ has no choice but to work for Toreno since he knows about Sweet and
may be able to help him.

  Go to the Ruins at Aldea Malvada to get some Heat-Seeking RPGs prior to

| The Plan \

  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 
  then you are provided with a RPG and the use of three different vehicles to 
  get you up to El Castillo Del Diablo. Don't bother with the RPG - just take 
  a vehicle (I prefer the Sanchez) and get up to the blip.

  When you get there then CJ will drop the flare. As the helicopter 
  approaches then it is intercepted by black helicopters. You must protect 
  the large helicopter from the black helicopters. This is where the 
  Heat-Seeking RPGs 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 RPG 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-Seeking RPGs makes this part of the mission easy.

  Make sure that the black helicopter you target are not too close to you or 
  you may get hurt when it crashes near you. But there will be some Health 
  nearby in the ruined shack just in case you do get injured. When you 
  destroy all five black helicopters then the large helicopter will fly off 
  and drop a package north of the Verdant Meadows Aircraft Graveyard.

  Get back on your vehicle and drive off to get it. When you get there then 
  pick it up and take it back to El Castillo Del Diablo to successfully 
  complete the mission.

Toreno wants CJ to go over to the Verdant Meadows Aircraft Graveyard and buy
it for him. He is to offer the owners of the property a dollar and kill them
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 abandoned and it will cost you $80,000.

And, in buying the property, you are also opening up.....

After buying the Verdant Meadows Aircraft Graveyard then 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
Aircraft Graveyard 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 then 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 bit
frustrating.

There are three aircraft that are used at the School: Rustler, Hunter, and
the Stuntplane.

When flying the Rustler then you need to get high up in the air quickly
without stalling. The best thing to do when taking off is to angle up gently
until you are up in the air. Once in the air then raise the landing gear and
angle up about 45 degrees. This will allow you to increase speed and altitude
quickly so you can reach the coronas.

The Stuntplane has very sensitive controls which make it hard to control.
Gentle movements of the joystick is all that is needed to maintain control of
the aircraft. It will take a little practice to effectively fly the plane.

       <0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+<<##0##>>+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0>

  >>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.

      Use the Rockets to destroy the trucks (although Randy Russell says that 
      the Machine Guns are better for that task) and use the Machine Gun to 
      destroy the vans. After that then land the Hunter on the runway 
      pointing east.

      This is a little harder because of lining up the targets and trying to 
      destroy them as quickly as possible plus landing the Hunter correctly. 
      You can get Gold if you do this in under 85 seconds.

  >>Loop-The-Loop
    *************
      You have to go through two coronas. After passing through the first 
      corona then pull back the stick to do the loop and 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. Some people have had success getting the Gold by going 
      into First Person view during this test.

      This task on the PC version is easier because of the keyboard controls 
      which will allow you to keep the plane straight far more easily than 
      with the Analog Sticks on the console versions.

  >>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. 
      Just like in the last test, the best way to get Gold is to wait until 
      you get near the second corona, and slightly above it, before doing the 
      barrel roll. When you do the roll you'll also start heading down so, if 
      you start slightly above the top of the corona, then you'll go through 
      the middle as you finish the roll.

      Some people have had success getting the Gold by going into First 
      Person view during this test. You need to do this test in 18 seconds or 
      less to get the Gold.

      Again, this task on the PC version is much easier than the console 
      versions because of the keyboard controls which will allow you to keep 
      the plane from corkscrewing into the ground.

  >>Parachute Onto Target
    *********************
      You have to skydive down and deploy your chute. Then you have to glide 
      to a target area. The target area 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 the test then 
      push forward to speed down. When you are prompted to deploy your 
      parachute then wait five seconds and then deploy. Then pull back on the 
      stick to help you land in the center. Landing in the center in 55 
      seconds will get you the Gold.

After successfully completing the Flight School, regardless of what medals
you have, then 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.

In addition, all of the aircraft at Easter Bay Airport, which were locked,
are now unlocked and ready to fly. Thanks to Brian Stell for pointing that
out (it should be noted that he mentioned the mission Mike Toreno where the
planes unlock). But, after playing through the PS2 version, I found that it
actually unlocks here (could unlock at a different point in another version).

But I am going to do something that came up during "Verdant Meadows"
first before heading to Las Venturas.....

During "Verdant Meadows" 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 then four checkered flag icons will 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 terrains.

Each race listed will also include the vehicle you use. When you are in a
race that uses a motorcycle then you can use your sub-machine gun to create
havoc that you can use to pass up or destroy your opponents. Get lots of ammo
for your sub-machine gun of choice before doing a motorcycle race.

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%
Completion.

| A. Los Santos Race Tournaments |~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\
0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=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 the mission "High Stakes, Low Rider". 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 concentrate on the course because of its short length.

  >>Race #3 - Backroad Wanderer (FCR-900)
    *************************************
      I hate this one. The crooked roads and the hills made it hard to get 
      ahead, and stay ahead, of your 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 down 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 sub-machine gun to take down 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 then the course becomes 
      easier. There are a couple of long straight-aways 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 the mission "Wu Zi Mu". 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 the mission "Farewell, My Love...". You do not have 
      to do this again unless you want to improve your best time.

0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=0=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0

The San Fierro Race Tournaments can be picked up behind Wang's Autos in
Downtown. There are six races to be performed.

  >>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 your vehicle.

  >>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, then 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 
      then 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, then you can get ahead 
      of them again. Once you get past the Xoomer Gas Station then 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 
      re-appears 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+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+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
performed but they are more lengthy than the others.

  >>Race #1 - SF to LV (Banshee)
    ****************************
      Despite 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 certainly don't 
      want to get caught up in that.

  >>Race #2 - Dam Rider (NRG-500)
    *****************************
      At the beginning you can use your sub-machine gun to mess up or even 
      take down 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 
      then just use your sub-machine gun on him to take him down.

  >>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.

| D. Las Venturas Race Tournaments (Aircraft) |~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\
0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0

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 performed 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 that 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 swerve around too much trying to get checkpoints then put down 
      the landing gear. It will serve as a brake to help you keep 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 allows me to maintain a solid 
      but controllable 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 *VERY* important 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 then 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 quite 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 then try to stay near the mesas to your left 
      and clip the corona with your right wing. When you come around the 
      second time then 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 then 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 an 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 in-between 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 then the course 
      will get a lot easier. According to Phil Carter, who has the PC 
      version, the chopper is a San Andreas News chopper which appears to be 
      a little harder to control.

  >>Race #6 - Heli Hell (Hunter)
    ****************************
      In the open, the Hunter makes an excellent offensive weapon. In the 
      confines of Los Santos.....not so much. It's fast but it really doesn't 
      turn on a dime so it handles like a sick 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 then the course gets 
      easier.

      One of my readers, Anders Paulson, suggested that, if you have trouble 
      getting Gold in the Flight School, then you can actually save the 
      Hunter used in this race.

      When you start the race then 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.

And speaking of the Hunter.....

If you got all Golds at the Flight School or acquired one by storing one and
failing "Heli Hell" and you waited until now to do it then you can go ahead
and do the Vigilante Mission using the Hunter attack helicopter.

The powerful Machine Gun and Rockets of the Hunter will allow you to quickly
complete the twelve levels you need to finish to obtain the increased Body
Armor and take another step toward 100% Completion.

You can also continue beyond Level 12 of the Vigilante Mission and make more
money for yourself. The rewards for completing a level will increase the
longer you play the Mission. If you're really good at flying the Hunter then
you can make a lot of money quickly. Perhaps even more money than by using
the Inside Track Betting parlors.

Of course, if you unable to get all Golds to spawn the Hunter, then there is
an another way to do the Vigilante Mission. Just south of Verdant Meadows
Aircraft Graveyard is the Restricted Area. It is here where you can acquire a
Rhino tank.

Although you opened up the Desert / Las Venturas area after completion of the
mission "Yay Ka-Boom-Boom" , the Rhino won't spawn here until after
completion of the mission "Verdant Meadows". This is because, after "Verdant
Meadows", is when you can max out your Wanted Rating at 6-Stars.

It is best to know where the nearby Police Bribes are at before trying to
acquire the Rhino because you will get a 5-Star Wanted Rating when entering
the Restricted Area. After getting rid of the Wanted Rating then you can
safely start the Vigilante Mission.

The best place to start is around the Fort Carson area (as suggested to me by
Bragon the Bat). Most of the targets will tend to stay in the rural areas so
you won't have to deal with as much traffic.

The tank is fast enough to let you to ram the target vehicles instead of
shooting them. This will allow you to keep the Wanted Ratings to a minimum.
And, since the tank is impervious to gunfire, then you can get Level 12 and
beyond without much effort.

Just don't let the Rhino linger near any large flames since fire is the only
thing that can destroy it (and destroy it quickly might add).

Now back to the Main Story.....

After completion of "Learning To Fly" then you open up the Verdant Meadows
Aircraft Graveyard Asset Missions. Here you use various aircraft to complete
your missions. There are four missions total and can be picked up at the
front of the hangar where the Rustler is kept.

It should be noted that you must complete the Verdant Meadows Aircraft
Graveyard Asset missions before you are allowed to do "Saint Mark's Bistro".

  After being ambushed by Mike Toreno he wants CJ to drop off equipment to 
  some of Toreno's friends.....

0=========0
| The Plan \
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 then 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 to use, according to Randy Russell and which I found to be 
  very useful, is to fly due west and when you get near Las Payasadas turn 
  north. When you reach the water then turn west and fly down close to the 
  water. Follow the coastline and you will reach San Fierro.

  Keep going south until you reach Angel Pine. Lower your landing gear to 
  slow you down and make it easier for you to fly through the corona. Once 
  you make the drop then raise your landing gear and go back the way you 
  came.
  
  Follow the coastline and, when you get near Las Payasadas, then fly up and 
  over the small town then put down your landing gear and ease down onto the 
  runway. After you have landed the plane on the runway then the mission is 
  successfully completed.

  Some government agents land at the airstrip and begin to on-load some 
  stuff. Toreno wants CJ to do some "pest control" and get rid of these rival 
  agents.....

0=======================>

  --Baseball Bat.
  --Nightstick.

0=========0
| The Plan \
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, then 
  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 then you'll fail the mission 
  because you won't be able to straighten back out and make another attempt 
  at the ramp before the plane takes off. 

  But you can avoid the barrels by approaching the ramp at an angle instead 
  of straight on. The barrels spread out when they are thrown from the plane. 
  Just stay to the right of the spread pattern as you approach the ramp.

  When you start your approach then go straight past the truck, which should 
  be to your left, and lean forward a little to gain speed and gently angle 
  left toward the ramp as you get closer but staying just outside the spread 
  pattern of the barrels. You should be able to get to the ramp just before 
  it starts to close.

  The second part is when you get on the plane. You need to go to the front 
  of the plane to plant some explosives so you can destroy the plane. If you 
  don't have any Remote Explosives to blow up the plane then you will be 
  given some.

  In addition, there are still barrels coming down the middle of the plane. 
  They will knock you down but they don't seem to do any damage. There are 
  also several agents throughout the plane that should be dealt with. You 
  have to be careful when using firearms on the plane.

  If you miss one of the agents then you will blow up the plane, with you in 
  it, and fail the mission. When I want to use a firearm then I use the 
  Silenced 9mm Pistol but I still recommend the use of a melee weapon. 

  Gradually go up the plane and dispose of the agents with your weapon of 
  choice. Get the Parachute off the last agent so you can get off the plane 
  safely.

  It should be noted that even if you have a Parachute or max Flight Skill 
  you will need to kill this agent to get the Parachute. If you exit the 
  plane without a Parachute then you will fail the mission and die (you will 
  smash onto the top of a car at the drive-in theater in Fort Carson).

  After you get to the very front of the plane then plant the Remote 
  Explosive and exit the plane through the rear ramp to successfully complete 
  the mission.

  $20,000.

       <0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+<<##0##>>+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0>

  In addition, you will be free-falling so you will need to parachute safely 
  to the ground. However, you will be really high up. I mean really high up. 
  You start free-falling way above the maximum flight ceiling somewhere over 
  Fort Carson. When using the Parachute you can actually glide all the way 
  back to Verdant Meadows Aircraft Graveyard (while avoiding the Restricted 
  Area).

  CJ hooks up with The Truth again and together they head off to a place not 
  on any map.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  --Silenced 9mm Pistol (300+ rounds).
  --M4.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  The Truth wants you to go into the Restricted Area 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 then 
  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 the mission then 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 9mm Pistol to kill 
  any nearby soldiers.

  Avoid the searchlights and head to the control tower. Once there then 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 lock-down then 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 then 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 then turn right and up the stairs to enter a 
  small room with a Body Armor Icon and a Mini-Gun. 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 then 
  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 access 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 then 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 Sub-machine Gun you had previously.

  Then head over to Arco Del Oeste to drop off the Jetpack to The Truth. As 
  you fly there then the game will instruct you on how to use the Jetpack.
  You can only use the 9mm 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 then the mission will be successfully completed.

       <0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+<<##0##>>+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+0>

  At this point you're stuck with the Micro-SMG but you may want to wait 
  until after the next mission before going back to Ammu-Nation to switch 
  back to the SMG.

  But you are provided with a Sanchez so you can get off the mountain. Also, 
  you can now purchase 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".

    >>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).

    >>Inside the short control tower at the south central part of the 
      military complex at the Restricted Area (Bone County).

  they least want you to get".....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  Micro SMG (provided).

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Regardless of whatever sub-machine gun you have 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. In addition, according to Bragon the Bat, if 
  you already have the Micro SMG in your inventory, then you will be given an 
  additional 2,000 rounds.

  Fly up and head east toward the north part of Las Venturas. Then 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.

  After you kill most of the soldiers then fly off and to the train to pick 
  off the rest of them. There are also three crates that need to be destroyed 
  to find the Green Goo. Regardless of what order you destroy them, the Green 
  Goo will always be in the last crate. After you get the Green Goo then fly 
  off to the Aircraft Graveyard and land in the red circle to successfully 
  complete the mission.

  In addition, you will complete the Asset Missions for Verdant Meadows 
  Aircraft Graveyard. You will gain a Money Icon at the Verdant Meadows 
  Aircraft Graveyard Safehouse that will generate maximum revenue of $10,000 
  per day.

  Also, the Jetpack will now spawn near the entrance of the Verdant Meadows 
  Aircraft Graveyard Safehouse for you to use. Before going further you 
  should either head to an Ammu-Nation or to the front of The Four Dragon's 
  Casino to re-acquire an SMG.

  And now, let's go back to our friend Wu Zi Mu.....

The Four Dragons Casino, in the southern part of The Strip in Las Venturas,
is where Wu Zi Mu has set up shop. He invites CJ to become a partner in their
operation. However, CJ also needs to deal with the Mafia who have their own
Casino, Caligula's Palace, and they don't take too kindly to having the Triad
invade their territory.

  The Triads catch somebody trying to destroy equipment for the casino. CJ 
  decides to make him talk to find out who's behind the sabotage.....

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  The would-be-saboteur 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 then he will talk. He will tell you that 
  the Sindacco Family is behind the sabotage. After that then take him back 
  to the Casino. When you reach the Casino then the mission will be 
  successfully completed.

  CJ decides that the best way to hurt the Sindacco Family is to rob their 
  casino, Caligula's Palace. But they need some explosives to do the heist. 
  Woozie recommends that CJ head out to the nearby quarry to get some.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  --SMG.
  --Sniper Rifle.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Head out toward Hunter Quarry which is indicated by the blip. When you get 
  there then 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 then 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 then 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.

  But reader Sarah Jane Marley came up with a much better way. Head toward 
  the entrance of the Quarry. At the entrance the gates are shut, blocked off 
  with two armored vehicles and guarded by four guards with Shotguns.

  What you need to do is, when you get near the entrance, and instead of 
  going up the ramp to where the guards are at, then go left and up another 
  ramp. Stop when you get to the top, get off the Sanchez and arm your Sniper 
  Rifle. Then pick off the four Shotgun wielding guards.

  After you do that then go to the entrance and get into one of the armored 
  vehicles. Back it up against the closed gate and get out. Climb up the 
  vehicle and then the fence to get out of the Quarry.

  Regardless of method, once you get out of the Quarry, then go over to the 
  drop point, not far from the Quarry, to successfully complete the mission.

Once you have completed "Explosive Situation" then 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 then you need to 
             get beyond the blast radius. Once that is done then the mission 
             is completed. 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 its huge size, the 
             Dumper is quite vulnerable to sub-machine 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.

             Another method, from Bragon the Bat, is to push the Dumper into 
             the water when you get close enough to the inlet.

  >>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 then you will fail the mission. When you get to the main 
             entrance then 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 then back 
             up the Dumper and use the Right Analog Stick to dump the bodies 
             into the fire. It is important to note that you should use the 
             Handbrake while dumping or the Dumper will move forward. Once 
             all three bodies fall into the fire then the mission will be 
             successfully completed.

  >>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. After 
             you get to the Graveyard then 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. According to Phil Carter all you 
             need to do is just go straight on the tracks.

             The barrels will go off to either the left or right on their 
             own. You still might need to get at a couple that didn't get off 
             the tracks completely but this is faster than what I had written 
             here previously.

             After you get the last barrel off the track then the train will 
             pass by and the mission will be successfully 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 Police 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. After you get both objects into the red circle then 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. After you get both objects into the Dumper then 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, then the mission will be failed.

             After you get up to the main entrance then 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 (don't forget to hold down Handbrake 
             just to be safe).

             After the objects are dumped then the mission is successfully 
             completed and you will also complete the Hunter Quarry Asset 
             Missions.

             Reader Ron Schock also came up with the idea of driving the 
             truck *BACKWARDS* to the dumping spot once he got out of the 
             Quarry.

             He found that it is much easier to run over the traffic without 
             the objects falling out because the objects only threaten to 
             fall out if you are hit by trafic while going forwards. It is 
             also easier to back up to the drop-off spot since you are 
             already going there backwards.

For completing all seven Hunter Quarry Asset Missions then you gain a Money
Icon near the front entrance that will generate maximum revenue of $2,000 per
day plus use of a Dozer and Dumper within the quarry.

You can also redo the missions and improve upon your best times. When you
redo the missions then you can skip to whichever mission you want to try.
However, the time needed to finish the mission will be drastically reduced
thus increasing the challenge.

Now back to the Main Story.....

  After discovering some fake chips, made by the Sindacco Family, floating

  factory.....

| Notes \
0=======================>

  I had somebody write to me about not being able to sneak into the building 
  on the PC version. However, after playing through the PC version myself, I 
  had no problems getting inside.

0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=0
| No Wanted Rating Exploit |
0+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=+=0

  When you are notified that the factory is guarded then your Wanted Ratings 
  will freeze. You can either cause chaos or grab a Rhino from Area 69 and 
  save it at any garage large enough to hold it (if you don't want to wait 
  for 100% Completion to spawn one).

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Go over to the factory unit in Whitewood Estates. When you get there then 
  you will be notified that the factory is guarded and you should try to 
  sneak in. Drive through the gate but angle northeast. Drive around the 
  building and park where the Chainsaw Weapon Icon is at on the south side of 
  the building then get out.

  Now carefully go along the wall and sneak in on the right side of the 
  entrance. If you do this right then 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 9mm 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 then head near the bottom of the 
  stairs and aim your gun at the car parked outside. Shoot the car and you 
  will trigger a cutscene of the guards going inside the factory.

  These guards 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 and turn back to 
  the Forklift.

  *NOW* kill the guy in the Forklift. When you do that then 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 then you would 
  have to face all of these guards at once. By doing it this way then you 
  have made your task easier.

  Now for a nice little tip given to me by Phil Carter. Take your Remote 
  Explosives and place one at each machine then switch to the Detonator (do 
  *NOT* detonate yet). Leave the factory and take the car that the guards 
  were sitting in. Drive to the Whitewood Estates Burger Shot nearby and get 
  out of the car. 

  Then detonate the Remote Explosives. This will destroy all of the machines 
  but, even better, you avoid the additional guards that appear when they are 
  destroyed thus avoiding having to fight through them since you are already 
  out of the factory area.

  After successfully destroying the machines then get back into your car and 
  drive back to the Casino to successfully complete the mission.

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  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 then 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 then 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 then the survivors will enter trucks and 
  will chase you back to Las Venturas where you will eventually get into 
  another fight with them at your destination.

  Get back in the car and drive back to Caligula's Palace. Once you get there 
  then you will meet up with Ken Rosenberg, yes *THAT* Ken Rosenberg, the 
  same whiny lawyer from Vice City you had to do missions for as Tommy 
  Vercetti.

  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 ends 
  then the mission will be successfully completed.

  In addition, you can now purchase Combat Shotguns at all Ammu-Nations. 
  Also, you will get a call from Paul and this will open up a dice icon at 
  Caligula's Palace but I will do that later. Plus, there are no Four Dragon 
  Casino missions for now so I will move on to.....
