I haven't tested this out but saw it in another thread. Go to Sunset Park. There is a small camp where the STAG remains after beating the game. You'll have to raise your notoriety level to level 4 I think.

Great Guide so far dude!

A few things you could add:

Powerslide Challenge - Go to the airport, grab the Infuego gang car that's always there (if not grab on and go there). Find the most open section of the Airport hold reverse and the poweslide button and left or right on the steering and you'll basically continue to powerslide forever unless you stop or hit something.


The Specialists - I found a really easy way of doing this. It takes a little prep but it was a walk in the park once done. This method will also let you work towards the Brutes achievement, The cars destroyed, The helicopters destroyed, the multikills and tanks destroyed.

Step 1: Go to Saints HQ (the penthouse) and start some sh*t outside with the Police. When a bulldog (Humvee with machinegun) turns up steal it and use it to cause more mayhem until the Tanks turn up. Steal the Tank and quickly stash it in your Garage. Go into the HQ to get rid of notoriety.

Step 2: Go and buy the Rim Jobs mechanic in whatever area the specialists you want to destroy control. Then retrieve the tank from it.

Step 3: Go and pick a fight with your chosen gang all the while making your way back to the Rim Jobs.

Step 4: Once at Rim Jobs keep up the fighting taking out specialists when they appear. You should be able to take a lot of punishment in the tank but every so often drive in and get yourself repaired. When you've got all the specialists you need run into the office of the Rim Jobs and voila no more notoriety. Rinse and repeat.

Note: I also found I got a lot of Morningstar Specialists in certain Tank Mayhem activities by ignoring the police and trying to annoy the gang members more.

Mascots: The Easy Professor Genki S.E.R.C's are good for this since you'll be earning an easy $3k and maybe 15 kills each run which take about 1min when you've done it a few times.

Store Robbery: Buy the store, walk in, rob it, walk out, walk back in. Easy way to lose the cops.
Hope some of this is helpful!

I started completing the challenges after I beat the game. What you can do to get the specialist kills or 50 taunts, just go to a friends game who hasn't beaten it yet, get him to buy any store, get a 5 star gang notoriety, walk into the store loose all the stars, then start taunting, they WILL NOT shoot at you, you need to be the host taunt them for them to get mad & start shooting. IT WORKS. I literally just did it.

Here's an easy way to get all of the following (11) challenges at once: cars destroyed, specialists killed, grenade kills, headshots kills, helicopters destroyed, human shields, tanks destroyed, brute kills, no-weapon kills, multi kills, nutshots ---

Just wait until your respect level reaches 48-50 and purchase all the Damage and Combat upgrades - you'll be pretty much invincible and have infinite ammo. Get your notoriety high and just stand in the middle of the street taking out all the vehicles with your rocket launcher/grenades.

You'll be doing several challenges at once this way - for example the Morning Star gang sends helicopters and shooting one down will give you a "multi-kill", "specialist kill", and "helicopter destroyed". That's three challenges you're working toward at once.

And since you're taking no bullet damage thanks to the upgrade, you can just walk up to everyone and use them as human shields, or beat them down without weapons, etc.

The Vehicle Surfing challenge would be so simple if I wasn't thrown from the car randomly.

It looks like a lot but most of this will be done quickly IF you do them during the main playthrough.

I completed the game 100%, challenges included just over the 30 hour mark. So yeah, it's a lot of challenges and a bit you need to grind but most of it is pretty easy.

For the Emu challenge, one of your vehicle theft cars is the emu. With it selected as my target I went to the designated area and blew them all up until the challenge was completed. Then, grabbed one to turn in to the chop shop. Infinite vehicle spawns ftw.

You guys just made me realize that you can always do the specialists and Taunts. Do like what Mr. Wafu and headdragon said.

1. Start a gang related challenge like a Snatch in the area.
2. Raise hell.
3. Get lots of the gang to show up. kill all specialists if needed.
4. Abort activity. Taunt gang
5. Run to nearest shop.
6. Run out and taunt gang.
7. Repeat 6 as needed.


Thanks for giving me the idea guys.

Ahh. So it is to avoid crashing into other cars. I thought the purpose was to try and smash as much stuff as possible. Again thanks.

This thread will help me get that last couple of challenges I need. Mainly need Deckers/Luchadores Specialists, Taunting gangs, Torpedo, some more hostages, and one or two others.

This actually doesn't work unless you are obtaining the condor via the vehicle theft menu.

*SPOILER ALERT*


A little tip I found to farm the headshots is that after you crash the second plane and you see a "zombie" cut scene you can return to the island, climb up a set of stairs and snipe away, zombies count for headshots and from what I experienced they couldn't climb the stairs.

That's answered my question. I'll give it a go

I was wondering if your stats add up even if you start a second save file and the gender equality achievement can be gotten from playing your first game as a guy and your second as a women can you complete all but a few challenges on one save then do the ones you didn't do on your second save and get the achievement?

Eghh, I can't seem to get that to work.
It's not all bad though, I have to do another run through for the act completion alternative achievements (I was an idiot and didn't multi be everything ) so I'll get the rest of the collectible on this run through and just do another play though to mop up the rest.

nice guide very helpfull, though i'm almost done the info on gangs hiding out near the strongholds after 100% completion is helpfull for me , and for the Emu challenge i found it easier to do it while doing the car theft for the emu, i grabbed one to put in my garage just incase then stayed near the gun shop to refill on ammo + lose the cops now and again but used the infinate spawning Emu's with the car location on the map / mini map to destroy them quickly took about 30 mins with topping up on ammo etc if youve unlocked the infinate ammo / homing rocket launcher it makes it easier (and i appolagise if this was posted above kind of got bored after reading the first page of comments hehe)

The taunting is the ONLY challenge giving me trouble. I just played through 5 star firefights with every gang and must've had 100 taunts in the end and my counter says I have 2. Furthermore, I tried to do some taunts in Deckers die (mission) and got around another 30 there, all to which didn't count either. I simply ask that somebody can tell me how to get these last 48 stupid ass taunts, as this is truly pissing me off now!

Going to go ahead and call shenanigans on this one as well. A buddy of mine and me both tried this on 2 different accounts and recieved no credit after a 30 minute trial period.

I've beaten the game and have 0/50 taunts. I've definitely taunted a few times before. I can't even find gang members to taunt now, so I'm screwed I guess.

Go to this thread to see how to do the taunt challenge after beating the game:

Anyone have any good tips for starting survival missions? I've been standing around now for about 40 minutes and have only managed 2!

They take ages to complete aswell.

Finally got those taunts would have been so much easier if I would have started that earlier in the game. All i have left is to find 14 more shortcuts and vehicle surf for another 240 seconds so should be simple.
