02-24-2007, 09:13 PM
i always have the same problem, now that i beat the game it takes forever to come across a gang controlled car that they actually stay in, cuz once i gank one, they always just hop out

When you first start up ur campaign again. Dont shoot off any bullets. Just walk around and find gang-controlled cars and jump in one and then go find another. if YOu shoot any bullets at a gang member they Will all come after you if you pass them. and the Car ones will hop out

nice man, ill give it a shot later on

Do the gang members need to be in the car?
Or could you just drive 100 different gang vehicles that are lying around?

I'm new to the forums but if you do the time trial I believe with Diaz in the Dome there are about 5 or so enemy vechicles to commendeer just keep doing that over and over again and the achievement should come easy.it took me an an hour but I got it eventually just remember they have to be in car driving.

02-25-2007, 06:53 PM
nice, good post, im sure ppl will give it a try

02-25-2007, 06:56 PM
SO, how do you go by starting it over. All I can see to do is too turn the crimes on.

02-25-2007, 07:05 PM
I believe once you log in there should be an option for time trials go there and there should be a full list of bosses check it out. If your still confused I'll give you the step by step.

Just out of curiosity, do peacekeeper cars count for this achievement?

02-25-2007, 10:53 PM
It's pretty specific with enemy vechicles but give it a try.When I first started I thought it was any enemy car with out them being in it.I figured hey it a enemy car and now its comendeered ..WRONG! :)

is the whole commendeer thing just pullin them out and gettin in?

02-26-2007, 12:19 AM
ok, so let me get this straight. You can only comandeer gang vehicles and the gang members have to be in the vehicles at the time.

Has anyone tried headshoting the gang members driving the vehicles then pulling their bodies out of the car and seeing if that counts?

I ask because I'm working through the other achievements before I go for this one so haven't tried this method yet.

It doesn't sound too hard. Steal some Los Muertos cars, when the hit squads come, go to Volk. When their hit squads come, go to Shai-Gen. When their hit squads come, go back to Los Muertos.

My method might seem a little tedious but it worked for me. Yes, the gang members have to be in the car and Ive tried the killing them in the vehicle approach as well in my earlier attempts but is not good enough.I drove a little after I stole the car as a precautionary measure.

sadly my idea takes some time, play the diaz time trial, the car factory with the ramps in los muertos, just steal the few cars, kill diaz, and replay. in about 4 plays i had to have stolen 15 cars...

The real trick to getting this achievement is looking to see whether or not the car is flashing red or blue. If it is red it means it is gang controlled, if it is blue it means nobody is in it. Also make sure you get in the car from the driver's side because if you get in the passenger side the driver just gets out and it doesn't count. I did this in the diaz time trial mode and i noticed that there were dead bodies in flashing red vehicles so i pulled them out and some alive guys too and it took me 31 cars to get the achievement because i already did some during the campaign, but i'm not sure if dead guys count.

I didn't have that much trouble with this achievement. I went to the Volk island and did the Michailov mission near the huge ship and shipping containers. There are a lot of gang controlled cars that try to run you over. Sometimes they get stuck on some of the shipping containers. I guess they don't know how to use reverse! Once the cars stopped coming after me I ran to a supply point and saved to reset the cars. Wash, rinse, and repeat. I think this took me about 45 minutes to an hour to finish this achievement. Hope this helps!

I ran into this problem once I beat the game. At least on my game it turned out that once I loaded a new game there would only be 2 gang controlled cars and then no more would appear. So I had to literally just start in Los Muertos jump down grab a car get out run down the street grab the next one then quit and load again. It sucked and it took forever but that was the ONLY way i could even get into a car. by the way it only worked in los muertos. if i loaded in volk or shang there wasn't a damn gang car in sight.

02-28-2007, 03:17 AM
do you have to drive the car after you steel it, cuz i have been just jumping in the car then jumping right back out for about 2 hours and still havent got the achievement

02-28-2007, 03:20 AM
can anyone CONFIRM that if u get in a car that is a "gang-car" does there have to be a gangsta in it...lol

like as in....if u got the achievement by getting in a gang car with no one in it

Can't confirm, but look at the actual achievement picture!


Thats what you gotta do!

Also, gang-controlled means they're controlling the car. If not, its just a gang car...

03-01-2007, 02:50 AM
yea but all the stuff with the rampage achievement, they are called "gang-controlled" cars...and i know some stuff i did no gang members were in the car

I got this after i beat the game. turn on crimes, and spawn at the la murge pacific city bank (1st safe house on the list) head the the street and youll probably see a gang car right away. Jack him, and drive up the road a little bit. youll probably see another car on the opposite side of the road, jack him and drive down the road a bit. You want to patroll between the corner by the night club, and the 4 way intersection by the main bridge on the same road. I was racking up 5 car jacks within 2 minutes or so. After that, the gang cars get scarse, so i would restart the game and do it again. took about an hour doing it this way.

Sometimes there would be police on the roads, and they would start a fight with the gang... which caused all the gang cars that came by to stop, get out and fight. very frustrating when you see 3 potential repos go to waste =[

just remember not to shoot at the gangs, ever, and it wont be so bad.
