Good luck!
I did it the other way around, I would get all the secondary objectives first, going through it 2-3 times to get all those, and then by then, I knew the mission really well, so the last thing i would do is go for the time..and on all but 4 or 5 of them, I would get the time one on my first attempt at it.

'Follow Close' on Mori's 'No. 3'

If Mori says anything that can be taken as Luis isn't keeping up, is that an auto-fail?

The Ford GT (which is what it is in our world) is really tough for me to handle. Brucie's Aston Martin Vanquish (which is what it is in our world) would be MUCH better, but oh well.

I just want to know if I need to reload right after he says something to that affect instead of wasting my time with the rest of the course.

Thanks in advance!

Under 10 Mins for 'Departure Time'... GENIUS

Found this YouTube video for getting the TIME for 'Departure Time' in just over 7:30. I know it may seem IMPOSSIBLE, but this guy uses some VERY unconventional methods that are 100% LEGIT. I couldn't believe the stuff he came up with.

**THIS VIDEO USES ABSOLUTELY NO CHEATS, GLITCHES, OR ANYTHING OF THAT NATURE TO GAIN AN UNFAIR ADVANTAGE OVER THE WAY THE GAME IS MEANT TO BE PLAYED**


Given that my skills aren't nearly what this guy's are, my time on the VERY FIRST TRY with this method is 9:37, which still gets the job done. :-)

You have to counter KO (knock out) the final guy. You don't have to lose the match. Once you win the match, just shoot Santo once you get outside (he only uses a knife).

Well done! My best is 8:39. The best on the R* Social Club ladder is 7:28-ish, so when the dude did it in 7:04, he was offline.

Did Rockstar think 100% would be fun??

Some of the 100% requirements just require you to play a mission so many times that you swear to yourself you will never play another Rockstar game ever again.

This isn't about them making games fun, this is about them putting their cock in your mouth.

Fuck them.

Could they have made the Gamerscore for this any worse?

I'm sending this back to gamefly as soon as I finish the story. Gotta know when to pick your battles, and this isn't one of them.

I was wracking my brain for a while on this one.
I got this without landing in that "top" boat, actually I believe it was the second one from the bottom that I got in the run I got this objective. Can't say for sure it doesn't matter which boat you land in but my experience was different.

Thanks to the OP for this guide, it's already helped me out quite a bit!

I got a problem with IN THE CROSSHAIRS Mission.

I shot the 4 snipers down, one each with one shot, but the checklist didn't register.
I already repeated the mission so many times, and I can confirm that I only shot 4 times, one hit kill on each snipers.

WTH is going on here? Am I just got glitched?


*EDIT*
Ok, nevermind. Finally got this.
It's definitely glitched. Here's the story.

The game won't register the 4 shots, 4 snipers requirement because I used STANDARD SNIPER RIFLE. That's the fucking culprit. I repeated the mission many times and the requirement won't register because of this fucking STANDARD Sniper Rifle.

After I bought the ADVANCED SNIPER RIFLE from Armando, I replayed the mission & ensured I only shoot 4 times on 4 snipers. Then, FUCKING VOILA! The checklist registered!
4 Shots 4 Snipers done!

It turns out that YOU MUST USE ADVANCED SNIPER RIFLE TO GET THIS FUCKING REQUIREMENT on this mission to get 100%!! Fucking Bloody HELL!!

This should get merged with the "gold star" guide that someone wrote on all the missions.

The checklist is perfect. I'll have to print it out whenever I decide to subject myself to such frustration.

About half way mission, the game tells u can duck, by clicking LS. A bit later, a chopper will pass over flying really low over u. Just duck (more lie down) and thats the requirement. Btw, if u r fast enough u can blow this chopper, but needless to say if u do it, u wont get the aforementioned requirement

The vid's been taken down due to copyright. Does anyone happen to know another vid like this, or remember some of the tricks he used? This mission is pissing me off... for the 6th time...

I must say that this helps quite a lot when I'm going through and checking off each of the mission requirements. Thanks again for putting this together, L e d.

Anyone got any tips for not taking more than 10% damage in the mission Momma's Boy (the one in the fight club)? It's pretty hard not to get hit at all by the 3rd guy :/ Is there a combo that works 100% of the time?

I did nothing but punch all 3 guys. It feels too much like luck, if they get the tiniest gap they get in one punch and then it's impossible to hit them back until they've landed another 3 or 4 and by then you're down to 50% health.

This was by far the worst mission for me, in all the others I just spray the P90 and no one has a chance to hit me. I had to give up on this one and try it a couple times every day between other missions, took me a week of that before I finally got it.

And as for vehicle physics, I think they're bang on. It requires the tiniest bit of effort to master.

Try not to move towards the enemy while punching. Try to just stand still and punch when the opponent is close enough to reach. Then make one combo and go back on distance to let the enemy move. This is a pretty boring fight though but worked very well for me.

not sure but i was worried if i drove too fast it might end the mission but i didnt test that theory!
Awesome tip. Couldn't do this with less than 20% damage. Jumped on bike and let that sucker chase me, on foot, all the way to the park. 100% on all now. (wish i'd come here 12 months ago)
