Explain that mission, I can't recall that, its so many of them!!! All I know is if you gain access to the other island w/ little haiti and Little Havana on it, you can find a chopper on top of the VCN building, theres a chopper on the police building as well and if you pass the cop mission, you can go to the army base w/ your cop clothes and get the Apache.... Secret mission if you get it... I won't spoil though!!!! Theres also a building that cost $14000 In downtown that if you buy, you get your own personal chopper.

Easiest place to find a chopper, once you unlock the bridges, head to the top left side of the map, there is a bike bar (where you will have to complete some missins), go up even with the bike bar toward the top of the map either 1 or 2 blocks, there is a police station, you will see a black staircase hidden in between 2 buildings in an ally, go up it to the roof and there you will find what you are looking for.

You all will have so much fun getting that helicopter. When i first got it, it took less than a few minutes untill all my felony stars were lit up. :D

I got mine after Phenom Penh '86 mission too.

After the cop mission, keep on the uniform, and grab a chopper, then fly over the army base, there should be one there.:D

There are several helicopters.
One on top of the Hyman Condo (if you buy that building).
One on top of the police station on the 2nd island.
There is a helicopter on top of youre mansion and another one in the court yard behind the mansion (this one has a gun on it).

If you complete the MAIN missions the military chopper is available at the military base near the airport.

It is also there is you find all 100 packages.

IF you do BOTH: main missions and all packages, you get the military chopper at your mansion.

What? I have all the missions done (up to the boomshine mission) and it wasnt there when I flew into the base a while back...

I'll have to check again.

You need to finish the mission "keep your friends close".

If you have not defended your mansion against the onslaught of Mafia guys trying to take it back.. you have not finished the main mission line.

Good luck.

Doing "Vigilante" missions in this chopper is awesome. IT has a mini0-gun and dual rockets.... unlimited ammo.. :D

I did all that already... The boomshine mission is after that mission... kinda like a bonus or something I think.

Does it spawn everytime at the army base, or are there times when it wont spawn? Maybe I should check...

It is always there.

I fly it around if I start to get damage (it's smoking) I go back and get another one. It is at the bakc of the base. t is apain to wlak to it. you must walk in and out of several fences.

It is a couple "hundred feet" behind the tank.

So far, i still prefer the Rhino to the Hunter for the vigilante missions.

Cool tip for the Rhino: Your only vulnerabilities are fliping, drowning and getting pulled out, right? Here's a way to accelerate fast enough to minimize the chances of geting jerked out by a cop: turn the turret aruond backwards and use it like a thruster. :devil: You can get going pretty quick by doing this, so be careful... ;) Don't flip or fall in the water. ;)

ok author we know this :D .....i figured out why i say the fis in the water.....when i got mad and blew up my motorcycle that was in the water.....the shark floated up...when i was atop the light house and blew up my cheetah that was in the water....a dolphin floated up.....guess i killed them by accident......

going to go look for that apache now:)

JekylandHyde

I was playing on sunday with the Hunter and I have system down for doing vigalantes.

As I attain stars... when I get to 3 or 4 stars. I play down to the autodealership, jump in a car swing it around back into the pay and spray and get rid of the stars.

Then I fly back over to the military base and get a "new" chopper. This freshens up any damage. This is also important because if you get out of the chopper a 2nd time (for whatever reason) it will disappear.

Anyway I got over 100 vigilantes complete in one round... when you pass 50 mission you start getting $100,000 each one... when I passed 100 missions I started getting 500,000 per mission.... I was up to $20 million dallors :D

I do not have all the packages (I have 99) and the chopper IS there.
When you complete the main missions & get all 100 packages the Chopper is at your main mansion.


IF you are WEARING A POLICE uniform they will not shoot at you in the army compound. :D

03-13-2003, 06:14 PM
Grendel....how many hidden packages do u have.....i got about 38.....itz not there.....where is it......

03-13-2003, 06:24 PM
The Hunter will spawn (not always, but usually) if you have 100 packages *OR* if you've completed "Keep Your Friends Close..."

If you get 100% complete, it's also supposed to spawn at the helipad of the house at the very southern tip of Ocean Beach. (the one facing south, that had a package by the front door.) Haven't seen that myself; can anyone confirm?Originally posted by JekylandHyde
When you complete the main missions & get all 100 packages the Chopper is at your main mansion.Where at the mansion? The one on Starfish Island, right? Maybe my source is confused...

It spawns in the north center of the Army base, against the back wall. The army base is a big square; the Hunter is here:

OOXOO <-- Hunter
OOOOO
OXOOO <-- Rhino

If flying in w/out the cop uniform, I'd highly advise dispatching anyone on the ground before grabbing the Hunter, because they'll just shoot it to crap before it can take off. Also, while the rotors are "warming up" don't try and "drive by" the soldiers on either side... you'll fire the missles at the same time! :o I found that out the hard way...!

The Print Shop will be making money, then you'll get a call on your cell with the guy saying there's trouble, etc. and a Mission will appear again at the Print Shop, and it will stop making money... Those missions open the final mansion missions.
