Most difficult activity

For me it was close between mayhem and snatch. But snatch wins the most challenging as it was the only part of the game I had to lower the difficulty

They're all much easier than SR2!

But if I had to say one I'd go for Heli assault. (Just because I used my city takeover on the last one)

It's the insurance fraud for me. All the streets seemed to empty whenever I activated it. Still haven't finished all of the activities yet, but tank mayhem is definitely my favorite though, with regular mayhem a close second. I love blowing shit up!

Tough call, but snatch or heli assult. So far have completed Tank Mayhem, Mayhem, Trail Blazing, Guardian Angel (all two of them, haha) and Insurance Fraud.

Guardian Angel is also a bit annoying. Luckily only the couple of them as I said though. Tank Mayhem is by far the easiest, IMO. I thought regular Mayhem is also easy but I see others having problems with it. Trail Blazing is also easy once you realize that speed isn't nearly as important as hitting stuff.

Trick to Insurance Fraud is building combos by controlling yourself in the air. Run in one direction, as it does seem the cars spawning is weird but they will spawn in the direction you run usually; let the cars hit you back into the center of the hot spot. Have to really try to get to adrenaline mode quickly and take advantage of it-- I've gotten combos in the 100k range during it.

Trafficking wasn't hard, but annoying because they took for fucking ever to get back in the car sometimes. I chose PGSERC because I did them all with almost no upgrades and that was hard/frustrating as hell.

Yeah, I agree part of the problem isn't the difficulty on those but the horrible AI, makes them incredibly annoying. I get frustrated when luck with the brain-dead AI is more important than skill.

Guardian Angel shouldnt even count since both of them were required for the story

Heli Assault was my biggest pain. After getting used to using guided rockets switching over to a different Helicopter really sucked.

For the non guided rocket heli the MG on it is best choice. 2-3 shots disables/destroys all vehicles.

I have two, Trail Blazing on the Quad Bike really irritates me, I found a good way of doing it now though, just go as fast as possible and don't simply focus on blowing up cars, but Trail Blazing on the Bike is fun as, shame the coop for it isn't you both have bikes.

And the second one is Heli-Assault, it's so damn boring, I wouldn't mind if it were like 2 stops, but by the end of it all you're half dead, or asleep :P

Gotta go with Trail Blazing. Not the ones where you drive down the cyber-tunnel, but the ones where you have the pyro-quad. Only activities in the game where the time limit actually meant something.

I dont know why insurance fraud is considered hard. In fact, it was, by far, the easiest for me.

all you need to do is run facing an incoming car and then just jump over it. I can easily reach 30k-50k per shots sometimes.

Is this poll with or without invincibility? lol
I voted Heli Assault because of the Hard activity where you dont have homing missiles and have 6 stops, tried it a few times then used the takeover upgrade on it as it was my last one anyway.

As for Insurance fraud, I didn't fail a single one, just run towards the blue areas taking hits on the way, once you get there just do your thing, hitting multiple vehicles I found to be the best way rack up points.

For me it is Insurance Fraud and Mayhem. I suck at racking up points for those two.

Heli assault. Flight simulation makes me giddy. It was ok with the missions because I could take my time.

Thankfully my friend helped me on this activity in co-op. He pretty much shot everything while I was grabbing a sandwich.

Trafficking is driving me nuts, I have three left and my god damn dealer always refuses to get back in the car when there are a shitload of gang members around.

The last Mayhem I have left to do is the one on the zombie island, tried it a bunch of times last night and could barely get half the damage I needed to.

Insurance Fraud is bullshit. Never liked it in SR1 or 2.
