Great vids! but gotta ask... in Mission 12 "sexy time", how the hell is that car there? when i spawn after picking the mission from the cellphone, there isnt any car around. Must wait for a vehicle to appear and waste a lot of time during this. Any suggestions?

Try going to the spot that the mission starts from and calling Henrique (I think) and get him to deliver a bullet, then start the mission from the phone. That works for another mission, I am not sure if it'll work for this one. Otherwise it's just luck, sometimes there's no cars for miles and others there are a few taxis driving past.

In the mission "Going Deep", how do you get the criteria "Hidden Bomb"? I have done the mission a million times to get the time right, but never ever did I get the "Hidden Bomb". I've read somewhere that you have to plant a C-4 under the car. But didn't work for me.

Any suggestions?

Thanks, I didn't wait for them to do anything. I just triggered it when they was close enough.

However, on "Dropping In".. I call Henrique to get my Bullet GT delievered. But after I use my cell to trigger mission.. it's gone again. Happens everytime, any suggestions here?

I had that problem too, just couldn't do that mission so resorted to help from these videos and realised you could call Henrique.

You have to call him and once you see the 'H' appear on your mini-map use your cell phone to start the mission. Once it startes get straight out of the car you're in and get in the one Henrique pulls up in.

I usually just waited until he was in sight before I started the mission, that way saved maybe a couple of extra seconds

It's not necessary to get another car in that mission. If you drive without crashing, and then just run quickly with the explosive shotgun, then land on the truck, you'll get it. Don't care about health or accuracy, and you'll have no problems.

I think the only mission I had to use alternative means in was Band Bang. Is it even possible to do that one without a chopper?
Also, has anyone tried to destroy tha train and the plane with Buzzard's rockets? If it worked, that mission would be even easier (although I got 4:43 using the exact method from the video - the bazooka)

Yes, you can destroy the train and the subsequent plane using the Buzzard's rockets.

I am pretty sure you can use the Henrique cellphone trick. go to missino start location, call henrique, request car, and then immediately start mission as you see henrique approach, before he gets out of the car.

does anyone have tricks for getting the time limit in going deep? i use RPG when 2nd batch of NOOSe comes, but still never make it. I even parked a chopper at niko's middle park loft and that shaved off another 30 secs but I still am at least 1 minute over time limit.

"sexy time" is so aggrivating, for some reason i cannot control the turret and or the missles. i just end up going trigger happy and taking 345792389 minutes over the required time. really wish their was a crosshair or some kind of indicator where you are aiming.

There is a separate Sexy Time thread on these boards if you want to look at different strategies. Controlling the helicopter is difficult. The way I did it was to hover behind each boat pretty low to the water, and just leaning forward all the way for no more than a second and firing the guns and the rockets at the same time.

One trick I used that saved me tons of time (almost a full minute) is instead of driving to the docks, I went to Yusuf's helipad and flew directly to the yacht.

ahh thanks for the help. im gonna try to get this one at 100% tonight

EDIT: took several several attempts to get all missions at 100%, very frustrating at times but so satisfying. this achievement looks more intimidating than it is, two or three plays on each mission makes it easy. once for time, another for headshots/accuracy

I did Bang Bang in 4:18!!
What i did was to play Sexy Time before going for this mission.
That way when i finished Sexy Time a "Y" mark appears on the map that is Yusuf's Heli(Buzzard if i'm not mistaken).
So i then started Bang Bang and got the Buzzard so i destroyed both the train and the airplane without getting out of the heli.

Hope that helps!!

I did it without the helicopter yesterday. Here are the 3 timesavers I used.

1) Use the trick where you go to the mission start place, call for a Bullet and then start the mission.

2) After you blow up the helicopter, keep pushing forward. If you unleash the fury you can get to the fire escape pretty quickly.

3) Once there don't fight anyone, just climb down as quick as you can. When you reach the second landing from the bottom, it is low enough that you can leap off and he will do the roll rather than get injured. Run to your right down the street. There should be several abandoned cars in the intersection. Grab one a floor it away.

Hope this helps.

"In the crosshairs". When you eliminate the four snipers, you can jump up onto the roof of the small room behind you, and roll off it onto the fire escape below and simply run away.
You won't have to fight anyone, and you'll save so much time.
Only problem is, you'll probably miss the exit alot on initial attempts (I did and screamed blue murder by the end of it all.)
Check youtube for the video.
