The calls are completely random. I found moving around will get you them much more frequently than just standing still.

I seem to get a call for survival almost every time I go to the airport to get a plane.

When I was doing the challenge for destroying boats, I stuck around the docks and I always got a call. It seems like these sorts of places work well.

not that the power sliding challenge is hard, but its possible to get it all done in one power slide. go to the airport as mentioned by the guide. get going pretty fast. handbrake with A and turn. once you have lost some speed, turn the other way and keep alternating. i was able to power slide for 2 minutes this way

I've tried this method and I'm a bit confused. I ram into a wall and all I get is a bit of money. Is this supposed to happen or is the Car torpedo message supposed to come out.

You should be getting the Car Torpedo message. Start a long way from the wall and dive out a far distance from the wall. I think you maybe diving out too late and it's not counting.

I found an easy way to get the car torpedo challenge done very quickly. Get a fast car like the Torch or Temptress and fully upgrade the reinforced bumper and nitrous. Now just use nitrous into oncoming traffic at full speed and then bail. This method got me 200% - 300% car torpedos every time because the car you are driving into usually blows up causing lots of damage.

I've been doing this for about 2 hours now and either i'm jumping out to early or to late. It's the last challenge I need and it's really starting to annoy me.

There is one survival that can only be done after s
completing a certain story mission.

Nice guide. An alt way to get the EMUs that I used was to start the carjacking mission for one and then just keep destorying all the ones you find in the area, they respawn at least through the 20s as that is what I needed.

You can also steal that car, save it in your garage then take it out and destroy it 50 times.

For starters, learn the difference between your and you're. Second, who shit in your cereal that you came into this thread ranting and raving. If you don't like the methods found in this guide, look elsewhere, or better yet, make your own guide. A majority of the members here, myself included, found these methods useful and I 1,000'd the game in 32 hours using some methods in this guide. I am sorry somebody stole your lunch money and it caused you to rate this 1 star. Don't come here looking for hugs just because mommy and daddy didn't give you any

Only need to do 13 more survival missions and i have finished the game completely including achievements. Only recently worked out you only get phone calls about survival while walking and not in a vehicle.

At the minute when i load up my game i get two survival missions straight away and then have to wait half an hour

Nice diversion, but that wasn't the topic at hand. Maybe you should help the community and make a guide since you find the ones here so useless?

Due to the fact you have your stuff hidden. I find that hard to believe.

If people have better ways of doing them, POST THEM!
I'll be happy to add suggestions. I have in the past and will do so in this guide. I have been slacking in this guide but I'll gladly change anything.

I VIEWTIFUL I - If these methods aren't helpful, look elsewhere. Maybe someone found a cheaper way of completing these challenges. If you find something and want to contribute, by all means I'll add it in. If not, STFU and leave.

For Near Misses I found the highway better. For people run over. Wait till that island opens up with the Zombies. You can run over lots here without the cops bugging you.
