Bulletproof Windshield cheev tip.

If you hang back behind the car at the start, picking of the odd guy, a car will sometimes (always?) appear in the road behind you. It is easy to see on the radar and easy to shoot the driver before he gets out. It is much easier to then steam into the compound and only have to deal with one of the cars that appear.

174 people apparently aren't going to say so, so let me be the first to thank you for this tip. I couldn't seem to kill him for a while, but eventually the game decided that shooting someone in the head does tend to be fatal.

That's exactly what I did. I hung back and grabbed the Piano out of the boot of the car. Made it a lot easier to shoot the driver than the pistol. The I just ran in the compound and waited for the car that comes in on the left.

Thanks. This method worked for me...although... it still didn't seem like it worked. lol The horns weren't honking. They just kinda fell out of the vehicle. Oh well, not complaining!

Never mind, got it.

If you do what the OP said, you can run around the circular building inside the compound to the left of the gate and the second MP car will come towards you.

Many thanks for the tip, this achievement was really annoying me until I read this

Yet it is roundly being ignored for the tougher version people have included in their guides. Go figure.

This seems a lot easier, though on my second attempt I apparently killed the first car in the street too early; he veered and slammed into a citizen, making me fail the mission somehow. Still, thanks for the advice, it'll work sooner or later!

do you have to replay the whole place to get back to this point if you miss the achievement?

I suggest you that if you miss the first 2 cars, let yourself shot by the goons and you'll restart from the last checkpoint. If you miss 3 times, the game will ask if you wanna skip the scene, of course say NO!

Good luck to you

Oddly enough I thought the Chicago Piano would work better but after a couple of attempts failing, I just stuck to the pistol and followed this method. Shot the guy in car two, ran into the compound around the circular building and shot the guy in car three. All with the pistol and I got it.

Yeah this was how I got it. Didn't even need to change guns, i just used the pistol. First car is easy, as it stops in the exact same spot every time, so just be aiming there before it pulls up. Then walk into the middle of the road and prepare from the second car to pull up.

First go to your options and select Auto-aim, set it to High. Mine was on Low, and I never made a change in it, so Im assuming that most people have it on Low. Anyway grab the Piano out of the trunk, shot a couple guys while you make you way to the truck in the compound on the left. Aim at the car that pulling in, (this would be the 2nd car) with High auto-aim it FOLLOWS the driver, kill him and immediately be ready for the next car, because as soon as you kill anyone in the one car the 2nd spawns immediately. Just repeat what you did with other car. But seriously setting the Auto-aim to high is KEY, I retried about 20 times, then thought about the Auto-aim feature and changed it, got it on the 1st try.

I did it on the first attempt, all I did was go straight to my trunk and grab the piano gun, then run straight to the middle of the car park, and started spraying the cars as they arrived, easy!

Good call on this bud. I failed at least 20 times before changing the aim assist to high. Got it first try after that. So anyone really struggling with this, definately change your aim assist.

i don't get why people are bitching that much about that achievements, you only have to kill TWO drivers out of the 4 cars that are coming, no matter if you miss the 1st car or the last one !

There's only 3 cars, and it's kinda hard to do it. I didn't have TOO much trouble but I can see where alot of people would.

I have 4 cars, the 1st one is coming just front of you at the beginning of the scene, the 2nd one is coming in your back from the main road, the 3rd one is coming from the left side of the parking slot (as the 1st one) and the last one is coming from the right side of the parking slot !

Definately 4 cars. One in front of you, then one from behind, then one from the left and one from the right

Exactly what I did. Grab the Piano out, run behind the truck (left side), auto aim the car coming from the left, turn around and shoot the one from the right.
Easy with this method.
(Failed as I tried to shoot the one coming down the street)


- what I realized and what helped me a bit - you can "re-aim" by tapping LT

How do you get the piano gun. All I have in my trunk is the shotgun.

Edit: I signed up for the rockstar social club and I recieved the suit but no gun. Can someone tell me what the steps are for the gun.

Its part of the Rockstar pass package or you can download it by itself.

I may have a extra Piano code lying around somewhere.

EDIT: XBL Unreal, I just pm'd you a code.

I managed to cap the driver of the very first car with my pistol when I unlocked this Had taken several tries, with much swearing, and I was giving it one last go before I lost my temper, but got the first two cars. On one try, the second car, instead of driving down the road towards me, just spawned behind me, despite the red car indicator showing it driving on the HUD map. Cheating AI...

Got it my 2nd try. Grabbed the piano, charged in and lit everyone up as quickly as I could, and saw the car coming from the left, lit it up, and saw a car coming from the right inside the compound. Lit it up also. Boom. As the above guy said, have auto aim on! Mine must be on cause I always am able to autoaim quickly.
