First post, don't shoot, but I've really got to rant about what a nightmare those freaking rats are.

I spent 3 days doing the pigeons the initial round, and then I've gone through the wonderful Pigeons map provided by Psy, THREE times since then and visited several locations more than that and there's still only one pigeon left to kill.

Thing is, I know I can't be missing it this last time because I would look at Psy's photos and recreate each picture he made on my tv screen so I could compare mine to his and some how some way I'm still missing one freakin pigeon. The hardest one in my opinion is the Statue of Happiness but I've done blasted her to kingdom come with RPG's and the Blackhawk miniguns on top of flying around her to make sure I didn't miss anything.

Is there a particular pigeon that most people find the most difficult to locate or am I just being blind and stupid or is there a glitch?

EDITED:
I give up. I just watched a video on YouTube that showed all 200 pigeons being shot and I now I know I should have all 200. Can't believe I've wasted nearly two days of my life hunting one pigeon. wallbash_red.gif

It's actually easier to do these with a sniper, stand near the water's edge and you'll have a clear shot at them. When I did it I went through them carefully in order and made sure I got them. Dunno, maybe a glitch but I haven't heard of anyone else with this problem.

Wrong forum but an admin will escort this to the proper one.

Anyway, I ran into the same issue. I had one left and went through all of them 2 or 3 times before I found it. For me it was the one at the bottom of Algonquin between the heliport and the underground car tunnel (#113 on Psy's map). There are two circular open areas that are exactly the same but spaced apart. I always went to the Eastern one and thought I got it but it was in the circle area closer to the tunnel.

So that is where I got hung up. Hope it is just as simple for you.

LOL. I think I had done the exact same thing on #113. That one there was actually the 2nd pigeon I had missed. But after going back through the first time I found it and ever since I've been missing one pesky pigeon.

Hey ViceMan. LOL, yeah. I snipered everything that I thought I could that first time and in my anger rage to find the final pigeon which I thought might have been on the Statue of Happiness, guess I was wrong, I tried to blow up every square inch of that happy statue.

But hey, I do want to say thank yall for the advice.

I had the same problem... one rat that I didn't find, so I checked all locations with the help of the maps we have here on the site, but nothing.
I tried another map (ign I think) and still nothing.
all locations where clean but still the game told me not to have found 1 pigeon...
I started a new game after a while and here I found all, what was really wierd.

That's lovely to hear. A glitch screwed up my chance of getting 100% sad.gif . I'm tempted to go back through and take photos of all 200 locations and set it up exactly like Psy has done for his photos to see if people can tell if I'm making a mistake somewhere, but that'd definitely be a lot of work.

EDIT:
Will starting a new game affect my achievements?
