cheers, never realised there was a tommy gun in the boot of the car.

came in handy as the cars were going too fast to take them out with the pistol.

the first car doesn't count towards the achievement it's just the second and third

First car worked for me and after doing so got the achievement straight away without having to go for the second driver.

It's possible on all cars indeed, I can't believe I didn't think of the tommy gun though, made it alot easier, cheers Billy. Such a great case right?

What an absolute piece of shit achievement. My God. I've tried this probably 25 times and can't even hit the driver. It constantly auto-aims no matter how light I touch LT. Why does this game has such a tendency to throw in these types of achievements?!

I got this only shooting the drivers of cars 1&2. Car 1 is probably the easiest car to shoot then just take your pick on either 2 or 3.

And yet the video clearly showed whoever was playing get the achievement after shooting the first two.

This achievement is driving me insane. its the only one ive had any trouble with in the entire game. The car that comes from the road along the left i cant seem to kill headon, so i waiting til he was stopping and unloaded on him, but he still gets out the car and just instantly drops dead. I was loving this game, now i cant wait to be done with it

It takes a few tries but its really not that hard, when you get there pull out your Tommy gun from the trunk and quickly kill the guys already out the cars. then quickly position yourself for the last 2 cars because those are the ones you want. after about 10 tries i finally got it check OE's guide or a fellow thread for some tips.

I struggled with this cheeve until I tried this method with tommy gun and changing the settings to HIGH for aim help and on the option underneath (I forget its name) set to 1 position right of the centre position

For some reason I had a shotgun in the back but it probably made it twice as easy.

Thanks for the video. This was a pain achieve to get. I wound up just grabbing the Tommy out of the trunk right away, kill a couple of guys until the car on the street shows up (car #2), kill him when he gets closer. Then I ran into the base and fired on car #3 to get them both.

One thing, you only need to kill the driver it seems like, because the guy in car #3 got out and my achievement had already popped.

Great Video! I got it on 3rd try after watching that. Killed the driver in the 2nd car (one in street, which is easiest of the 4) and the last one. Really helped knowing where the cars come from and where thy stop. Thompson machine gun is a must on this.

I just lucked out on this one. First attempt tonight i managed to only get one driver, second attempt i only got one driver, but in a different car and the achievement popped. I dont know if this is because it doesnt necessarily have to be two all in one life? Or maybe I just got lucky

Just remember that you won't have the Tommy Gun in your trunk unless you signed up for the Rockstar Social Club. Otherwise, you just have your pistol.

For those having trouble getting the tommy gun out in time, when you approach the house you can take it out of the trunk there and even though Phelps drops it you can pick it back up when the house is set on fire.

After the chase when the gunfight starts you should have it equipped.

This guide got it for me on the 2nd attempt, thanks to the OP.

Problem for me was I had to do the full thing with the pistol as my boot-lid was shot off during the chase, and therefore could open the boot for the other weaponry!

So glad I got it out of the way easier than some poor folk!

Did anyone else get a shotgun in the trunk besides me?

EDIT: Finally got it having to use the pistol. I ended up accidentally shooting through a civilian when I shot the guy in the second car which failed the mission, but I don't care, I still got this damn achievement
