links section for more tips on flying.

picture of the map without having to drive fast?

an easier way to help 8-ball with the sniper?
A - Yes, across from the
ship and two trucks parked out front next to the big crane there is some
steps going up to the top of a building go to the top and stand on the
very edge. Aim down at the guys and start taking them out fast. It took
myself 3 trys. You just have to get used to aiming good with it.

up with it on a mission but 90% of the people don't actually come out with
it so if you do then you're lucky. If you put it in the garage and save
it, then it won't show up when you come back.
Where can I find the tank?
A - The best way to get a tank is to beat
all the story missions. After you have seen the masterful credits you can
go to area #10 on Staunton Island (Phil Cassidy's Army Surplus) and an
unlocked tank will be sitting there for your taking. It even comes back
after you die or get busted.

During earlier missions working with joey you saw that he was working on a

parked by the building you can't miss it.

Islands are there and what's their names?
A - 3 and it's Portland,
Staunton Island, and Shoreside Vale.
Q - Want the flame thower or
A - here's the answer. In Shoreside Vale in the industrial
district there is a building with about 10 wharehouse doors on it. I
believe it's behind the hospital somewhere. Inside one of them you can buy
cocktails or a flamethrower your choice. In a couple of the other
wharehouses there you can find a police bribe and health.

A - In portland where the other gone in 60 seconds
wharehouse is. There is a red truck over by some cargo containers. You'll
notice a yellow yield place on the concrete somewhere near by. When you
place these types of vehicles for it where it is marked a crane will pick
them up and put them on the ship, it will give you money and upon
compeletion you'll get a pick out of all those like the other GIS seconds
Q - How do I get the 6th
A - It's said that to obtain it you have to at least get to the
third island. I'm not exactly sure though. I konw during one of the
missions for the third I got 6 stars so I should be right.
Q - Can
I open the car door and not get in?
A - Yes, just press in the
opposite direction and he won't get in. In other words he'll throw someone
out but not get in.

it harder to get 6 stars?

you won't be able to get the 6th one either way.

A - 100 and they
don't have to be all in order. When you complete it it will be near
harwood in Portland. You should be able to notice it.
Q - What is
the Multi Story Mayhem Mini Mission? A - It's a mini mission like the
hummer except it's inside a car garage in Staunton. Outside the gates
steal a stallion. Usually the ones that have them are red so look for
those. Stallions seem to be the only ones that can do it. Sometimes the
mission screen pops up and sometimes it doesn't I guess it depends on when
you get the car.

33 on Portland
36 on Staunton
31 on Shoreside

If you only want to fix your car,
dont go to the spray shop and waste $1000, just put it in your garage, Let
the door close and voila! a brand new car!
At your safe point, when
you try to enter more than 2 cars it says that you can't fit more cars in
it but get your car close to the garage, get out of your car and the door
will open. Quickly get back in your car and enter your car in. Dont worry
about breaking it because your garage will repair them for free.
the SECOND Gone in 60 seconds mission(Import/Export dealer lists). If you
stay within a mile of the wharehouse. 80% of the cars you need will drive
right in front of the wharehouse so just sit there all day and pull in
cars as you see them. I got all the cars by standing there except the dune
buggy and limo.
On some of the car races. Before you get to the
starting line, hop in some cars and block those others so they have a hard
time getting out of the way, by the time they do you're way ahead.
There's an adreniline pill near the boat to make the 8-ball mission
even easier. Even though I didn't need it because I got it on the first
Do you want FBI cars easy? Do this... get 5 stars and go to your
homebase in Staunton Island make sure the FBI cars come INTO your base for
some reason if they get out on the otherside of the garage and you run
over by the save door when you go back to check if they're about to shoot
you, they're all gone! And the car is yours for the taking. I got 5 at one
time. They're actually pretty easy to get.
When you have the More
handling cheat on it gives all the cars Hydraulics. So you might want to
try that out.
