I can't get past the Cop Wheels mission

I'm just rubbish I guess because I never have enough time to
get the fourth bike. I'm prepared to cheat if neccessary
because I'm not enjoying the game since hitting this level.

Any advice....

yeah, you have to have a reasonable idea where to go and, more
importantly, take the bikes in a particular order so you're closest to
the truck for a pickup. It always travels that road in a clockwise
direction. This little walkthrough helped me pass and helped someone
else recently (It's best to pause after you drop each bike off, put
the red marker on the next place then you can just head for it)

the walkthrough :o )) (Notice he only gives it 4 out of 10 for
difficulty, that's how easy it can be if you know where you're going)


1. Cop Wheels
Starting Point: Four Dragons Casino, "$" marker
Difficulty: 4/10


once you know the order to get the bikes in, it's not
bad, as long as your bike skills are up to snuff. The Packer starts
on the east side of town, and slowly works it's way clockwise around
the highway.

So,start with the bike at Linden Station.

You'll probably pick up a wanted level here, but as long as it's one,
you're OK. Find the Packer, drive on.

Head over to the Airport area, and grab the one there. The cop will
hop on his bike as soon as you get into range. Floor the car, and
just run into the bike. You'll knock him off, and then you can hop on
the bike yourself. My experience with doing this is you usually end
up with a two-star wanted level. One for the initial crash, the other
for stealing the bike. Avoiding two stars isn't bad on a bike. It's
a little tougher once you have to steal a car. But don't worry about
that now. Find the Packer, unload the bike, and find another car.

Do what you can to avoid the 2-star wanted level (if you only have 1,
it's probably gone by now), and go get the bike near
Roca Escalante.
This one is just sitting there, so you just have to run past a couple
cops to get this one. Find the Packer, unload, etc.

If you have enough time, you may want to consider heading south along
the highway, and grabbing the police bribe that is underneath the
overpass just south of where you got the firs bike (east
side/southbound side of the road). It will take a little heat off of
you, but since you have to knock another cop off a bike, it may not
last long.

Go get the last bike at Julias Thruway East area.

If you get a 2-star here, don't worry. The Packer isn't far away, and
avoiding the wanted level on the highway is pretty easy. As soon as
you drive up the ramp with the last bike, you're done.

Hi Jan, If you have access to an Action replay kit then they have a
code on there for stopping the timer which makes the nicking of the
bikes alot easier. Good luck.

I don't but I might just get one.

I don't usually cheat though. But I don't have the time to
play as much as I used to so spending hours retrying the
same level is something I don't have time for.

I'd say definitely try a walk through first... and if you still arent
getting it, then you just dont have enough bike skill and should maybe just
spend a gaming session riding around.

I think this particular mission took me two tries. I found the easiest way
without the walkthrough is the nab a bike and then pick the quickest route
of escape toward the highway before actually driving away. Pausing is your
friend.

good luck

In addition to what the others said (except for the cheating part), I
recommend reloading until you see PCJ-600 bikes spawning around. This
mission went from pure frustration (I could get about 2-3 police bikes
before running out of time) to an enjoyable challenge (all police bikes
collected with time left on the clock) thanks to being able to use the
PCJ-600. I truly loathe the cars in this game. You still need to pick a
starting bike strategically, and it also helps if you've got the jetpack
spawning at Verdant Meadows, to fly to your first cop bike.

Something always goes wrong.

Several times in a row, no cars spawned at the start of the
mission and I don't mean mean parked cars. This lost me a
lot of time, then theres one bike that the cop always gets
on before I get there.

Several times I failed to stop him and spent an age chasing
him, one time I hit him before he got a chance to get away
and the bike exploded!

That's not a bad idea.

Yeah, sorry Jan but when it gives problems it gives problems. I lost
count of the tries I did before using the run through, I'll just have
to say stick with :o ))
