@3 and anyone else, really: if you say "this is from Family Guy," you are wrong because everything on Family Guy is originally from Youtube.

only the hard ones will cause trouble as the last two stops have lots more cars on the homie,

i suggest trying to do as many but if you sanity is going, use the stag take over as far as i know one is earned via leveling and 40k the other is from i heart nyteblade mission with choosing to give nyte boi back to stag.

Dear Volition,

Thank you for making Heli Assault a LOT more fun. WHile I don't care for the no tracking missle helicoptors, the guns are a Lot easier to do, the helicoptors are easier to control (I actually sruvived after slamming my helicoptor against a wall and getting it stuck! Not only that, my homies aren't the sitting ducks they were in the last game! Thanks to you, I no longer fear Heli Assault, but rather welcome it.

Love, Akira Katayama.

Just started this game four days ago. I'm loving everything about it except Heli-Assault. Hating these missions already. Dumbass in the car might live longer if he actually tried some evasive driving and didn't stop for f$&@in' chips. Amazing that the rest of the game is so much fun, but this...isn't.

The last two activities haven't shown up. I completed the game as well. Is there a certain way to unlock them ?
