If anyone has read my guides, in particular the Ammu-Nation Gun Range Challenges guide, you'll have seen me refer to the "Shoot Car Trick" in order to improve your weapon skill. I don't actually think I covered this in depth anywhere in the guides, so for all of the people still wondering what it's all about, here's the run-down.
Grab a vehicle and take it to one of your safe houses with a garage. Park the car in the garage and walk out until the door closes. Switch to the weapon you want to increase your skill for and hold R1 to aim with the crosshairs. While aiming, walk towards the garage and get close enough so that the door opens. When it does, shoot at the car inside there until it catches fire. Generally you have about one magazine worth of ammo for the semi or fully automatic weapons. Once the vehicle's on fire move backwards so the door closes. Now walk forwards again and you'll see the car is as good as new. You can then shoot it again and before it blows up, let the door close. Then just repeat. Ten minutes with each weapon is all it should take and you'll have Hitman status making anything regarding shooting in the game incredibly easy. You'll need to try and make sure you don't blow up the car though, or you'll risk getting hurt or getting a wanted level, but this is certainly easier than shooting random people throughout the game in order to improve your weapon skills.

You can also shoot at the tires. The car won't go on fire and you don't have to be at a safehouse garage.

o_O I never thought of that. I just shot cars on the street, over and over again.

I knew about this but of course since I insist on being wholly truthful in saying I did all of the game myself I just shot a lot of people.

|As opposed to shooting a lot of people|
What, is there something wrong with shooting a lot of people?
But yeah I imagine that if you are a person who is either anctious to be able to dual-weild or aim well or whatever, or a person who is replaying the game, or just an impatient person, then this would come in handy.

its better to just go into a police station and shoot up the cops may take a lil longer but its more fun its boring just shooting the car and lettin the door close lol

Yeah you're right. It's the same with just shooting at the tires. And the shotguns take especially long.
Anyway, I never thought of the "Shoot Car Trick". Pretty smart Psy.

I always just shot tires on cars. Its always good to have a second way though. Thanks for the trick.

You can also get hitman on everything by getting head shots continuously.
But, I got hitman on everything by shooting every cop, soldier, cop car, and helicopter with 6 stars!!! and it took about 50 minutes to get hitman on everything...
Feb 16 2005, 02:04 AM
ya, same here, it took me like bout 45 min to get almost every weapon to hitman lvl. thxs for the tip psy
Feb 16 2005, 12:21 PM
I just get a shitload of headshots! I got desert eagle to hitman in 20 mins or so
Feb 16 2005, 12:42 PM

Feb 16 2005, 12:44 PM
green mist your sig says you have completed sa 100% with cheats how???
Feb 16 2005, 01:20 PM
guys all you have to do with any weapon to reach hitman level is shoot a 1000 bullets at anything that will take damage, this includes people, vehicles, shooting range, glass window(only the ones that shater when shot, not all of them but if they shatter you cant shoot at them again)

Feb 16 2005, 04:05 PM
Thats very clever, took me ages to do it the "Shoot anything that Walks" way.
Feb 16 2005, 04:06 PM

Me too, its fun-er when they have a chance to escape the carnage,
my CJ = (virtual) Grim Reaper!
I like to make them run, or since I ride my motor bike alot, I am a carnage king!
Just fire a couple of shots, watch the cocroaches scatter!
last one in sight, I chase down.. and introduce him to Virtual Heaven/Hell Via my gat!
my fav is getting on the hwy loops and shooting someone so they get on the gas, then chasing them down...
they crash into other people and drive all crazy tring to get outta the way of my wrath!
I love it!

Or maybe you're just dumb? JK, good tip for those who need to reach Hitman.
Feb 25 2005, 03:23 PM
If u start gang wars that's a good way to get any weopons u have up to hitman level. It gives u something useful to do at the same time too. The ak is easy to get up to hitman level as the gang members have them and u can top up on ammo.

hey. oh sorry. this shouldn't be here. I did it by accident. ignore it.
