Crackdown Achievements

Agency Wheelman

Accelerate and slide your way to a 4-star Driving rating  

Driving rating will increase as you:

- Kill enemies by running them over
- Beat Road Races (see "Road Warrior")
- Jump through Stunt Markers (see "Ring Leader")
- Do stunts (see "Stunt Driver")
- Collect Hidden Orbs (see "Orb Hunter")

The quickest way to get your Driving rating up is to kill enemies by running them over. The easiest way to run enemies over is to find an area full of them and fishtail by holding Reverse and Left or Right at the same time. The best place I have found to do this is the area around Los Muertos boss Violetta Sanchez before eliminating her. Just circle the building she is in or go through the court yard and run over any gang member you see. If you focus solely on this, you can max your rating in about an hour and a half or less, depending on your skill. Driving slower makes it easier as the gang members are less likely to move out of the way.

Note: Killing civilians or peacekeepers by running them over will decrease your rating.

Has anyone ever received this achievement? I've played through this game more times than I can remember and can only get my driving up to 2 stars by the end!

Mine was only 2 stars by the end of the game too. Driving mechanics in this game totally suck. I am having to grind it out now where the guide says doing it on time trial mode. Tedious as hell.

I ended up beefing up my stars by, after I had finished everyone off, going to the arena on the north island of La Murge, driving various off-road suitable vehicles in the area (don't know why I didn't try the Agency SUV earlier) around inside, hitting the one ramp over and over again (and avoiding the twisted ramps). Took 6-8 jumps to move the counter up one (2-3 with the Agency SUV). Eventually the vehicle will crap out from all the damage sustained from the landings, but the trucks last about 15 jumps (two levels), the jeep/SUV around 20 (three levels), and the Agency SUV.... I kind of didn't count when I saw just how much it filled up the bar.

With the Agency SUV, you just need to make sure to not hit the trusses. And it doesn't hurt to move the semi and van out of the way, so th

Just carry a ramp truck to the Los Muertos Beach. Go back to the Agency, grab an SUV, carry that back to the beach and just keep hitting trick after trick. I ranked my driving from a 2-star 20 to a 3-star 46 in about an hour. The most difficulty is setti g everything up just right. Also, be sure to avoid the beach lovers. Hitting them will decrease your rating.

The driving one is easier than people think. Go to the Centeral Tower building where there is a lift that goes up to a boss and just constantly ram people down, they don't really move out the way.

Use the agency SUV and just take it up the lift, don't kill the boss though. When the car is destroyed just go get another and people will infinitely spawn :)

Get and Agency Supercar and take the tunnel to the Shai-Gen island. There are always clusters of enemies hanging around the area where you come out of the tunnel (as well as nearby intersections). When you get topside, just start plowing into everyone. I found that the penalty for hitting citizens is FAR outweighed by the amount of Shai-Gen you'll be chewing up. When the car gets busted up, just retreat back down the tunnel to the keep and get a new car. I was getting between 5-10 points per trip.

Use the supercar and just crash into every enemy vehicle, when crashing with the supercar it actually send the enemy car flying and that damages them, even if it's not a kill you'll still get a few points when they die(like if for example the cops kill the guys)

Far, far easier than trying to run over the guys when they are walking around
