This mission was hard as fuck for me at first, I seriously was about to throw my fucking controller at the tv... but really after the first 5 tries it got easier for me. I figured that you just go get that bike parked at the tree to your right, and tail the first 3 cars and destory them, you should be good for the rest of the ride. Just don't stop shooting at the cars after that but there is a good chance that lance could make it to prawn island by hisself by the time you reach those businesses owned by gangs around the mall... so I took over all the business so I have bulletproof cars and let vance go it on his own, while I switch vehicles from the bike to the BP gang car, and usually by the time I close the door on the BP Gang Car, lance has already made it. So I just drive and try not to trade paint with anything until I get to the mansion and run over everyone (since the car is bulletproof) and even if I didn't kill everyone I just park infront of the arrow in front of the entrance at the back of the mansion and get out and make a run for the entrace... then inside armando mendez will have a flamethrower and chase you around with the top-down view like how it was in Liberty City Stories when all those men came at you with those chainsaws (Portland Chainsaw Massacre/SlashTV)... he always burned the fuck out of me in like 10 seconds so I was killed then highjacked a firetruck by throwing mozeltov grenades or whatever that shit is called and completed the firetruck missions (they were easier than I thought plus it saved a checkpoint at level 10, but it goes up to level 15)... then tried the mission again, did all the same shit, then that flamethrower didn't hurt me because I was fireproof I just killed his ass easy. I'm not gonna ruin the end cutscene for you though.
I didn't know you had previously been doing them, *without* having done Firefighter.
That is one of my prerequisites for all the GTA Games. It was easy for you after that wasn't it?
Kind of funny that he couldn't hurt Vic.
About the BP Business vehicles, I think this mission was made for them.
I had already converted the business in Vice Point to Prostitution, so it had the Polaris outside.
Love that BP car!
I think I remember you had all the businesses finished.
But yeah, being fireproof is always valuable.
