    Go to the lighthouse near the area in the mission where you had to drop off the trailer. The lighthouse is near that area. A Timmy Vermicelli will be at the top of the lighthouse. If you cannot remember where that area is located, pause the game and look on the map for a large gray area. It will be between Baies Des Anges and Mont Boron. The lighthouse is near that large gray area on the map.

    From the starting point second from left, go towards the beach and make a left. Continue until you see a ramp with a gate and trash cans in the way, parallel to the street. Go up the ramp and continue across rooftops until you fall through wood planks. A Timmy Vermicelli will be waiting there.

Park a car or truck along side of the dumpster underneath the water tower. Get out and shoot the wooden beam on the left, and the water tower will fall on your car. Your car will only be slightly damaged.

  • Gator's Yacht mission

    The best way to do this mission in Miami is to go to Stiltsville (the water huts) first and get the C4. The water huts are near the word "Miami" on the map. The easiest way to get the C4 out of there is to park your boat far enough away that they cannot shoot you easily, but you can still shoot them. Beware of men shooting at you from other huts. The hut with the C4 on it is the one on the farthest left-hand side. After shooting everyone in sight, swim over to the ladder and climb up. There will probably be a man waiting for you at the top. Shoot him, then go up the stairs and in the door. There will be two men waiting for you inside. Shoot them. There is health in the corner, and the yellow highlighted box on the shelf is the C4. Go into the next room. There is is a man with a girl in there. Shoot the man then get the C4 on the bed and from the table. When you exit the hut, an intermission sequence will start, showing Gator's Yacht. Hop in the boat and go over to it. Again, park far enough away so that they cannot get a good shot at you, but you can still shoot them. They are hanging out on the back of the boat. Sometimes they are not there, but check just in case. There should a man on the left side of the boat and another on the second level in the center that you can shoot. Hop on the boat by using the ladder or by jumping from boat to boat. As soon as you get on the boat, a man on the left will appear and shoot at you. Go in the door on the first floor on the right. A man will come out and shoot at you, and another will wait by the couch. There is health on the coffee table. Go into the next room with the dining table. To the left is a table where you place the C4 and get some health. Stand by the yellow box and press L1. Go out the same way that you came in. Then, go on the second level of the ship inside the door. There is a man crouched down on the right, and two men on the left. After blowing them away, get the health on the checkerboard coffee table. Go up the hallway on the left and another man should come out around the corner. You do not need to go in the first room on the right. However if you need health, go into the second room. Finally, at the end of the hallway is another door. When you open the door, there will be a man directly ahead and another on the left. After shooting them go up to the yellow box and press L1. There is also some health here. Go out the same way you entered. There will be a man at the back of the boat shooting at you when you exit from the door. Go down stairs to the first floor in the door on the left. At the bottom of the stairs is a man waiting for you. There will also be a man to the right. There is some health directly ahead and to the left with a man guarding it. However if you go behind the stairs, there is a man guarding where the last C4 has to go. Kill him and press L1 to place the C4. You now have thirty seconds to get off the boat. Because you put the C4s down in this order, all you need to do is go up the steps, shoot a man when you exit the door, then hop in your boat and back away from the yacht. If you do not have a boat, then swim away.

  • The Chase mission

    In Istanbul's The Chase mission, there is no easy way to describe how to drive after Calita other than saying that there is no reason to run into her when she is in the car, because her mass is much greater. After you chase her to the bridge, the intermission sequence shows her jumping the drawbridge. Go over to the bridge control room on the left. Go up to the yellow box and press L1. The bridge will be lowered. Get back in your car and chase her while she is on the run. She will run into a motorcycle place. After the intermission sequence of her hopping on a bike, chase her on the bike. Applying the brake to turn with the bike is needed very rarely. Try releasing the gas rather than braking most of the time. Try to catch up to her, then bump her with your bike to complete the mission.

  • Hunted mission

    In Nice's Hunted mission, drive Dubois to the boat house. An intermission sequence showing Dubois dying and you escaping Jericho will appear. You will be trapped in a room while they blowtorch a door to get to you. The best way to get out is to get on the forklift and lift up one of the green boxes using Circle. Drive slowly in between the broken uprise against the wall. Then, climb up the ladder to the uprise. They will probably be shooting at you by this time. Jump from the uprise to the box, then to the other side. Run down that side to the ladder. Get the gun in front of the ladder. Climb down and collect the health at the bottom. Shoot the man in the boat outside of the boathouse. Then, jump in a boat and back out. However, beware of a man in another boat shooting at you with an Uzi. It is possible to get away in the boat without killing him, but if you feel the need, shoot him. Then, drive to the river you came down before getting caught with Dubois. There will be two boats with two people in each ready for you at the mouth of the river. Drive close enough so that you can shoot them, but they cannot shoot you. After killing them, drive the boat up the river. Get off the boat and go up a ramp. Get in a car without the "red" drivers on your radar seeing you -- if they catch you it is difficult to kill or escape from them. Drive to the destination. Enter the "circle road" on the west side then take the first right. Drive until you see a road that goes up a hill on your right with some white stones blocking your car. Get out of your car and go up the hill. Calita's gang have set up a road block at the top of the hill. Shoot them. Then, to get by the cars (you cannot get in or jump over them), shoot the grill of the car facing you until it explodes. You should have plenty of ammunition if you picked up the gun at the boathouse. Then, walk until you see another road that goes up a hill on your right. Walk up that hill and turn right at the top. Walk until you see a street that goes up a hill on your left. There will be another roadblock waiting for you. Shoot them. Blow up one of those cars so that you can get by. Shoot the two men that are standing in there. Then, run to the arrow. Someone will be shooting at you. However if you get to the arrow you do not have to worry about them.

  • Surveillance mission

    In Istanbul's Surveillance mission, follow Jericho. The less the proximity meter is, the closer you are to Jericho's car. The more full it is, the farther you are. After following him, you will be told to find another way into the meeting. Around back is a set of stairs that leads down to a door. Walk in and there should be a man facing the other direction in front of you. Pull out you silenced gun (with the long barrel) and shoot him in the head. It has to be a one shot kill or you will fail the mission. This may be difficult to do if auto-aim is on. Go up the stairs on your left. On the next flight of stairs, there will be a man at the top. Shoot him with a one shot kill. Then, go up the next flight of stairs and turn around. There will be a man standing by a balcony. Shoot him in the head quickly, because he moves from that location if you wait too long. Go up the stairs on the right. Go down the hallway. There will be an open room to your left. Inside is another man. Shoot him with one shot. Then, go down the riser in the middle of the broken floor and to the arrow. After the intermission sequence of the meeting you have to fight your way out. There will be a man in front of your right of the bat. Go out the door and there will be men on the uprise across from where you are located. They will be shooting at you, but it is a waste of time to shoot back. Run to your right and go up the stairs. A man with a shotgun will be at the top of the first flight of stairs. Shoot him and keep going. There will be a man at the doorway to the penthouse waiting for you. Before walking outside, to your right is health if needed. There are about four men with Ak-47s on the roof. After shooting them, go behind where you just came out of (the penthouse) on the roof and get some health if desired. Then, go across the roof and to the stairs. A man will come up the stairs. After shooting him, stay on the roof and shoot everyone on the lower level before you go down. There are two men that you can see. Then, go down the steps and move across this roof. Three men will be hiding behind the tanks and will come out at you. After shooting them and moving on, three more men will come up the stairs on the other side after you. Beware of the man crouched down behind the metal box. Before going down the next set of stairs, shoot the two men in the construction building across from you. Then go down the stairs and collect the health to the left. Next, go in the construction building and down the ramp on the right. As soon as you get down there, there will be four men waiting. After shooting them, another man will come out at you. After killing him, go into the next area on that level (the area in the sun). Another man will be there. After shooting him, go down the ramp on the right. When you use that ramp, you should see health directly ahead. Do not get it just yet -- it is a trap. First, shoot the men in the next area of that level then shoot the men down on the sidewalk across the street from the health. Then, go on the balcony and get the health. If you need more health, go in the next area. It is in the back left corner. Along the wall in the next area is a rectangular hole. Jump down it. There are no men down here. Walk down the ramp and an intermission sequence will start. There are about six men shooting at you from behind there cars. Shoot the ones that run from the car and towards you first, then just blow up one of the cars to kill the others. The Uzi works the best. Then, get in the black truck that is there. Beware of the "red" drivers on your radar. Drive to your hotel.

  • Cops gone wild

    This will work on any level. During Take A Ride mode when the cops are not after you, pull out your gun and start shooting people. Once you see a cop coming towards you on your radar, quickly put your gun away. The car will stop in the middle of the street and the two officers will get out. One of the officers will stand by the car while the other wanders off. Keep both of them in sight for about a minute (without pulling out you gun or stealing a car). One of them will start shooting at people for no reason. Sometimes both of them will shoot.

  • Drive under car

  • Enter blown up car

    This will work on any level. In Undercover or Take A Ride mode, shoot a car until it explodes. If the chassis part of the car is in an upright position, you can get inside that part of the car after it has exploded. This also works with trucks.

  • Pass through bike

    Choose any fast bike and start Take A Ride mode. Go as fast as you can on the wrong side of the street. If you see another fast bike coming, try to bump into it and you will find that you cannot do so. Instead, you will you will just pass through the other bike.

  • Soft walls

    When you are in Film Director mode, use the tripod camera and go by a building. Occasionally the camera will actually go through the wall and into the building. Most buildings have no interior, and are just a hollow wall with no floor and "blue hell". A building that definitely works in this way is the American Airlines Arena by the bridges in Miami.

  • Pass through car

    While on a bike, you can drive through the edges of a car while overtaking.
