Just drop some sticky bombs near the guys in the front. Pull out the sniper rifle and aim where the RPG guy will be. Go ahead and zoom in. Press Down to detonate sticky bombs. Fire the sniper rifle when the guy appears. Piece of cake.

The second one is the hardest. The third I would say is the easiest because as soon as the bar hits the top press the appropriate button.

Tips for beating 5:00 on Bang Bang?

If you don't remember, Bang Bang is where you travel aroung the city killing people for Tony. First it's a guy in a crane, then a train and then a plane (it rhymes!). My best is 5:09 and that's the fastest I could do it. How do I do it? Losing the 4* at the end is the hardest when I destroy the plane because the search radius is quite big. How can I lose the cops quicklly?

Just to let people know for the landing in the boat thing, you must land in the boat on the far left of the set of boats.

How do you conceal the bomb on Going Deep?

EDIT: Managed to do it, new problem, shaking that noob off the back of the boat.

Could you please tell me how you hid the bomb ?
I have no idea what I should do.

I tried to do it like told in the guide from igrandtheftauto.com (reversing car, plant bomb on parking space, the park the car again) but it won't work as the game wants me to place the bomb at the front of the car.

If it dosent work keep trying till you get it cuz it took me about 40 times just on that objective.

Ok I got it now.
@rabies: At last your hint from another Thread did the trick.
Eventually it looks like you have to simply drop the bomb by pressing RT in front of the car (like told in the ingame info), then head back to Bulgarin and wait for the NOOSE guys.
Now, do not blow the bomb until Bulgarin tells you to do (an info will pop up on the top left of the screen with description on how to blow the bomb).
When he tells you to, blow it and you should get this objective.

yea..that is exactly what I do everytime..i guess most people don't pay attention to what the game is telling you to do and throw the sticky onto the car? I've never thrown the sticky..always stood right in front of it and hit RB as the game tells you to do..then down on teh D-pad when the game (and Bulgarin) tells you to. Like I said, I got it first try without even knowing it was a checkmark.

I am having a REAL tough time beating the time for going deep. I am pretty fast when it comes to driving there, when I get there I blow up all the cars with a rocket launcher but one of my guys runs out of the garage and goes real far away. I blow all the cars outside then take out the agents in the buffalo then take it, then my partner comes back. I usually then drive back in the buffalo. So far I have gotten times of 6:36, 6:33, and 6:32 and I'm getting real irritated that I can't beat the time!

See the other thread. evo posted his tips along with a video, and I made a comment on how to improve the videos time by another 20-30 seconds.

After blowing the crane, rather than head for the train, head to the helipad with the buzzard. Take it to the train (but don't get out), and lift off after you've hit the marker. Shoot the train with the Buzzard's rockets (yes, you really can; awesome, no?). Then fly to airport. As before, you still have to trigger the marker, so take care not to clip the rotors on the clearance bar. Then, you guessed it, take out the plane via rocket and fly off into the sunset, no problems.

I've just about finished the list (currently on "For the man who has everything"; damn "duck chopper has me stumped), and I'd be more than happy to impart what I've learned via this thread or pm. Happy hunting!

Most of the mission requirements are rather easy.. But now I'm having some trouble getting my accuracy 70% or higher at some missions. Always getting stuck between 50 and 60%..

Anyone tips for this?

Untill now I did everything with auto-aim off, because I'm getting crazy with auto-aim on in in crowded situations...

OH. SNAP. 100%, baby!

As for getting good accuracy, turn auto-aim on, and use the auto-shotgun. Worked for me. Also, stay away from anything that "sprays" (the MG, Gold SMG, etc.).

Ok, thanks for the tip, normally i don't like shotguns and auto-aim.. But now for some good accuracy I have to switch my strategy/style for a while I guess.

Sticky bombs are the answer. At least for me they were (had 21 seconds to spare in the end). I bombed all (I believe 6) vehicles that came down to the garage. Don't let the first couple of vehicles stop (don't worry about the first bomb you planted), once Bulgarin says "Luis, it's time to see what you got" (or something like that), run towards the exit. Stick every vehicle that comes down (but don't stick 1 at a time). I believe 2 come at a time, stick both and then explode. Repeat until all vehicles are dealt with (don't let anybody set foot out of their vehicle). When you're ready to leave, stick the swat vehicle that comes on the left and explode. Then kill all agents on the other side and take one of their cars. It's pretty fast so you shouldn't have too much of a problem getting back to Bulgarin's house in a short amount of time.

.44 Pistol, can't go wrong with accuracy. All my 'headshot' objectives were done with this weapon.

Great guide! Hope now I can try to get the 100% on missions achievement.
BTW, any guesses on how much long would it take?

Yeah, I feel the same way. Not a fan of auto-aim (especially online), but desperate times...

As for how long it will take, it truly depends. If you take no more than an average of four runs per mission (taking into account multiple replays, and with infrequent failures), I'm thinking around 6-8 hours. But your skill and strategies will make more of an impact than actual play time.

Damn now I'm stuck on the accuracy objects in 'Dropping In' and 'Going Deep'... Auto-aim works awful in this missions because enemy's always behind some cover and then you'll shoot your bullets into a wall or other object.

These 2 things and the last mission and I'm done with it, but it gets frustrating with that shitty auto-aim shooting now.

Tried shotgun, explosive shotgun, pistol and sniper, but no result...
And when I take my time moving into a good shooting positing I get hit like hell myself!

Already found a solution for myself... Just throw nades (or sticky bombs if you like) all over the place untill everybody dies! No guns and auto-aim needed..

It may take a while to end a mission, but for sure you have 100% accuracy!!

EDIT: I think you have to shoot 1 guy with a gun, be sure to mis no bullet otherwise your accuracy isn't 100% anymore. First mission were I used this strategy was 'Dropping In' and at the end I shot 'Ashvilli' trough his head.

Yeah, that one threw me, as well.

Right after the N.O.O.S.E. choppers start appearing, one will hover over the tracks and "wait" for the train to go under it. Duck and allow Luis to "slide" underneath it. If done correctly, this will trigger a brief cutscene.

I've landed on (and NOT rolled off) of this boat a number of times and still haven't gotten this. I remember detaching my parachute (shouldn't matter) once and landed PERFECTLY behind the seat without rolling and in another play, I landed on the back part (still didn't roll), but I took half damage (guess I was coming in too fast?).

At any rate, this is frustrating me. Any takers?

EDIT: Got it. It's not the boat on the 'far left' coming straight out of the chopper. It's the 'far left' when coming in from behind the group of boats (or the boat at the 'top' of the group when coming straight out of the chopper). Hope this clarifies enough. I was wracking my brain for a while on this one.

It's intimidating at first, but once you've gotten a few and have a good rhythm going, you can roll through them with little trouble. The worst parts by far are the time requirements, so make sure to get those first. And, this may be just me, but I had a much easier time doing multiple missions consecutively, rather than one or two at a time then taking a break. Perhaps it wad the momentum, but I rolled through them twice as fast when I completed them in rapid succession.

Good luck!
