Armed and Dangerous

Case Objective:

  • Subdue the suspect involved in the bank robbery

For this case you won’t need to really do much, the only requirement is to kill a group of criminals that are held up inside a bank. This is fairly simple, though if you press the :rb: you will drop your shotgun and pull out your side arm which is a colt 38. This is the only place in the whole game where you will be able to kill a criminal with this weapon. You can also check off the Ithica full stock shotgun as well if you also kill a criminal with this weapon. If not, you will be able to use one much later in the game. You can also find one of these shotguns in the truck of most police cars.

Warrants Outstanding

Case Objective:

  • Pursue and subdue outstanding warrant suspect

This is another case where you will only need to complete a short task. The case starts with a short cut-scene, which then leads into a rooftop chase. Corner the suspect then deal with them accordingly.

This will teach you how to chase down and deal with a fleeing suspect.
