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. You can get going pretty quick by doing this, so be careful... Don't flip or fall in the water.

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

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.

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?

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:

Code:
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...!
