Tagging Up Turf
This serves as your introduction to the spraypainting mechanic in San Andreas. You and your brother will have to spread out a bit and tag up the neighborhood, obscuring the tags of the Ballas and the Front Yard gangs. This is simple enough to do; just find the tags of the opposing gangs and spray over them with the normal weapon buttons. The first three are in Idylwood, and wont be a problem to find; just make sure there arent any cops around when you spray, as it does get you a wanted star.
After you make your way through the Front Yard turf, youll have to head into Ballas territory and spray over three more tags. Youll probably come into your first direct contact with hostile characters here, as one of the tags is guarded by a couple of Ballas; if you took our advice and got some SMG ammo, you can just blast them. Otherwise, youll have to spraypaint them in the face so that they bend over in pain before hitting the tag and running away. The last tag is atop a building; youll need to jump up to it. After you jump the second fence, turn left to find another jumpable block leading to the roof. After you tag that one, return to Sweets car and book it back to the hood.
Cleaning The Hood
Three tasks here:
First, check in on a pair of your friends. (Theyre not interested in joining up...yet.) Secondly, find and beat up the crack dealer. This can be easily accomplished with your fists, but if youve obtained a gun, killing the guy works just as well. Lastly, clear out the crack den! As with the previous mission, you can either use your fists, or go straight for the Uzi and get right to the wetwork. The latter is a bit simpler, as there are multiple enemies to deal with.
Get to the Cluckin Bell drive-thru window. When the Ballas drive by, start following them and try to get alongside their car; your passengers should eventually deal enough damage to it to set it on fire. When this happens, the Ballas will get out, so either run them down or let your passengers finish them off.
Nines and AKs
This mission serves as your aiming and firing tutorial. If youve played any previous GTA games, you likely wont need the help, as the mechanics havent changed too much, save for the manual aiming mode. The sole new inclusion is the ability to fire at gas tanks to instantaneously blow up cars, but this is difficult to do when someones actually shooting at you.
Next up, Sweet will ask you to get some new clothes. Buy anything you like; the Binco store doesnt have a huge selection of stuff, so you might not be straight ballin just yet, but you should be able to upgrade yourself from the plain t-shirt look that youve been sporting thus far.
Although this isnt part of the mission, the Binco is right around the corner from the gym, so you might want to head inside and work out for a bit. If you hit the exercise bike and do four kilometers at level six or seven, you should be able to burn off almost all of the fat that youve built up so far; you can also use the weights to buff up a bit. There is a limit to how much muscle you can build per day, though.
Youve got four groups of Ballas to get dead before you can complete this mission, so youll have to be watchful of your cars health. Sometimes its easier to just run the Ballas down rather than stop and let your friends shoot them, but again, you cant switch cars, so try to avoid taking too much damage.
After you finish off the Ballas underneath the bridge, youll get two wanted stars, so youll have to hit the Pay N Spray before you can clear the mission. Its a few blocks to the south, so try to keep your car at or near max speed on the way, if only to avoid any police entanglements. Your car will likely be on its last legs at this point, and the cops will try to ram you when they spot you, but the faster you go, the less likely theyll be to hit you.
Sweets pinned down in Seville, and needs a quick extraction from a sticky situation! Unfortunately, after you get his call, youll return outside to find that there isnt a single vehicle on the street, so before you pick up this mission, youll want to stow one inside your garage and grab it. Sweet wont stay alive forever, so youll have to get over to his location before his life meter runs out. If youve been faithfully getting the SMG ammo from atop Sweets house, you shouldnt have to make a side-trip to Emmets to pick up any weapons, so just get over to Seville.
When you arrive, youll find no fewer than five gangsters trying to take out your brother. You can cap four of them with a standard drive-by motion, but the fifth one, whos crouching on the steps, will likely require you to exit the vehicle and take him out on foot. After theyre all dead, grab a four-door vehicle and get back to your house before the Seville Families destroy your car!
