    OK, I've read all the posts on this mission and it's clear there are a lot of BSers out there. Beat it on the first try? No you didn't. Pick up the SMG before the bike portion of the mission for more deadly fire? F dat. Doesn't work. You just end up with the friggin uzi again once on the bike. Let's keep it real and post some truth here.

    I have tried this mission about 20 times and I'm getting bored. Even when I get into the drainage ditch with zero bike damage, they still explode my bike before I ever get to the gates. I try to hit the drivers of the bikes and even though I have about 750 machine pistol skill it takes a looong, loong time to hit them. I hit the passsengers, sometimes the tires but rarely the driver. Anyone have some good advice? Can you really hold two uzis on the bike if you have Hitman level on the micro SMG? Can you calibrate the controls to make manual targetting easier? Anyone have some trick to beat this be-atch of a mission? Tx

    The only thing I can say is practise. I tried about 5 times and finally got it. The key, I think, is to aim for the heads of the riders. Having done that, we passed it. Don't worry about the car carrier because you won't damage it. Red herring. Worry ONLY about the bikes.

    If you do that cheat on the "just buisness" mission your bike blows up, so no cheating....you only get one weapon on that mission btw hursty.
    Its a great mission but it takes alot practice OG, took me at least 10 tries before i beat it.
    Tip: Do not stop shooting and always aim for the bikers.

    Um I beat the mission on my second go, with an SMG. And the 2nd time CJ wdnt fire cuz my copy is glitchy. Pausing it and unpausing fixed it though, but I beat it on the 2nd attempt.

    I didnt really do that much shooting, on the 2 occasions when u stop and have to shoot cars around you, I didnt, I waited and smoke went on, I only shot at the bikes. Just spray them man, but shoot in front of them so they drive into ur fire.

    I'm confident enough in my sexuality to admit that this took me shed loads of tries but I got there in the end.
    My advice:
    In the first shoot out - shoot a few people but before Smoke runs out in to the middle run out there yourself and finish off the rest. You take a few extra hits but the main stumbling block to succeeding is keeping Smoke alive not yourself as the body armour you pick up in this room pretty much guarantees you'll survive. When I was failing it was because Smoke was dying.
    In the second shoot out again run ahead of Smoke taking a few bullets on his behalf. This way by the time you get on the bike Smoke will be virtually at full strength still.
    Now to the bike part: As every one agrees forget about the car carrier and focus on the bikes, like wise when the cars appear keep focusing on the bikes if there are any.
    Aim for the bike rider, it seemed pretty inconsistent to me as to where exactly on him you need to aim, he's harder to hit than the passenger but when you get him you'll take both out.
    When you stop aim for the middle of the 3 cars and keep shooting until it goes in flames then it will take the rest out. As soon as it starts to go to flames turn around and aim for the other car until it blows. I might be way off the mark but it seemed to me worth wiping all these cars out as whenever I performed well against these cars the first couple of bikes that came for me afterwards seemed to pretty much blow up all by themselves. Might just be my vivid imagination of course.
    Keep going after them bikes, you'll get a Terminator style cut scene with the car carrier crashing over the barrier. Keep going after them bikes.
    If you're anything like me it'll be round about now that you repeatedly die. Eventually Smoke will tell you to shoot the gate open. It's off to the right. Shoot vaguely central on the gate as much as possible and then start shooting at the bikes that follow you in. I can proudly boast that I singularly failed to kill any of these last bikers but eventually Smoke announced that we'd lost them and I punched the air like a bit of a sissy.

    I'd be interested to know from anyone how you go about changing guns during this mission. By my reckoning it can't be done.

    Oh and by the way it didn't really take me loads of tries. I did it first time blindfold whilst learning Russian which means I must have a massive p***s!!

    Lol Jawslack. Alright, thanks all for the tips. I guess I just have to try until I get it. I guess my only remaining question is: Can you get the SMG when you're on the bike? Even when I pick up the SMG after killing the Russians outside (right before the cut scene to the bike portion) I still end up with the uzi once on the bike. If I had the SMG on the bike it would be a whole other enchilada....any thoughts? Tx

    you guys are talking about the mission where you go into the building w/ smoke and gunfight, then escape on the bike right?
    I beat this on my first try. its not that hard. i have a method for killing peeps. I fireand switch targets at the same time, and it works everytime. You gotta remember to take cover iside the building, or else youll get smoked.i remember circling to the right staying close to the edge of the building, hiding behind the pillars.
    when escaping, i found shooting the tires or the drivers was the most effective, remember to do your best and aim for gastanks.
    that should help.

    took me about 5 goes. the only thing to do is practice aiming. shoot em down faster and you're sorted.
