Hints: Easy Money:
After completing the first UP mission and receiving Ewan, talk to him about the Winch challenge. After
completing level 3 on this challenge, bet the maximum amount of money. Even though you have already
done this, the height does not raise. Therefore you can continue betting at the maximum amount.
After about four times [depending on how much you start with], you should have about $7.0 million.
You can continue from here in order to get the maximum wager amount to $5.0 million [when you have
about $14.0 million in funds]. From there you can repeat this as often as desired when you need
Note: To save time, if you are trying to use the above method to increase your money, use stackable items
from outside of your stronghold. For example, try the gas canisters across the road [or for something
less volatile, use the shipping containers directly across the lake behind your house]. Items
used from outside of your stronghold stay in the exact location you put them until you quit your
game, giving you a prepared stack height the next time around. Two or three attempts may be required
to gather the items, but it is well worth it, as once done it requires only seconds to win
Hints: Winning Challenges Easily:
Bet the maximum money for the level 1 and 2 challenges then save and reload the game until you win. Bet
the minimum money for the level 3 challenge.
Hints: Stealing Fuel!:
This is most useful when used with factions who are already hostile [to keep them from shooting you down],
but can also be used to keep friendly factions from becoming upset with you. Obtain one of the
helicopters used by the faction you want to steal from [or one of its allies], and allow your disguise
to finish. Fly to the location of the fuel you want to obtain and lower your winch. Grab the
fuel tank and lift off before the enemy soldiers recognize you, then fly to a secure location [either
the PMC or a remote, open location]. Once out of sight, call Ewan in for the pick-up. Note:
Using a heavier helicopter is recommended, as the Rogue and Gunney class choppers are extremely difficult
to control when carrying a heavy fuel tank. Also, there are at least half a dozen fuel tanks
relatively close to the PMC, most of which are controlled by Universal Petroleum. Spending the
fuel for an Ambassador Gunship [an Allied helicopter, who are allies with UP] is well worth it if
you are going to use your PMC as a fuel depot.
Go to an outpost that has fuel tanks and tag them. Then call in Ewan for the extraction. If a soldier
happens to call in a report about your hostile act, go inside the outpost to cancel the call. By
doing this you will get fuel and the faction will still be friendly with you. Naturally, this trick
requires a fast vehicle [for example, a sports motorcycle]. Find an outpost that has a fuel tank.
Look for an easy way out before you attempt to steal the fuel. Once your vehicle is positioned facing
the fast exit and after making sure no one sees you, tag the fuel tank and call Ewan for extraction.
Run to your vehicle and drive as fast as you can until you are far enough from the place
so that no one can report you. Note: This also works with a helicopter as your vehicle when you are
in the jungle area, but requires more time because you must wait a few seconds before you can lift

Hints: Sniper Rifle Scope on Regular Rifle:
Have a sniper rifle in your inventory. While you are using the scope, hit D-pad Right to switch weapons.
You should have an assault rifle out while having the scoped view.
Hints: Defeating Carmona:
When Carmona's men are attacking the PMC, after you destroy the tanks set a charge of C4 on the gates
closer to the mansion and blow it. It should drop straight down and block the road leading out of
the compound. Enter the mansion and trigger the intermission sequence. When you exit the building,
the road leading out of the compound is still blocked. Kill Carmona's bodyguards and his jeep should
be stuck on the rubble of the archway. Kill him and snap the picture for easy verification of
When completing the mission on the oil rig in the water behind the PMC, kill Blanco and take his weapon,
the hunting pistol. The hunting pistol is a very powerful weapon, often killing enemies in one
shot. With the hunting pistol in your possession, continue through the 'Finding Solano' mission/
After the encounter with Carmona inside the villa, he runs in a straight line directly away from you,
giving you a clear shot at his back. If you miss on the first shot, he has a good bit of a jog
until he reaches his jeep, giving you plenty of time to gun him down.
Hints: Free Vehicle Repair and Rearming:
Just enter any allied HQ or outpost and once you leave, your vehicle will be fully repaired and rearmed.
