Hints: Easy 'Sharpshooter' Achievement:
When you have a gun and car, start driving, and initiate a police chase [try crashing into a cop's car].
Once the chase begins, wait for a good time to lean out and fire. Then, hit LB to lean out the
side of your car and aim your gun. This will make time slow down, giving you more time to line
up your shots. Shoot the tires to get the 'Sharpshooter' achievement. Note: Making quick turns or
circling around a cop's car will expose their tires better and give you a more clear shot.
While on foot, start a fight with a cop on the street. Knock him out using some attacks, and pick up
the gun he drops. Once cops start arriving, grab some cover, and quickly shoot out the tires on one
of the oncoming cop cars to get the 'Sharpshooter' achievement. If this is not done quickly, the
cops will kill you before you can shoot out their tires. Note: You must shoot the cop car's tires
while it is driving; it does not count towards the achievement if the car is parked.

another fish; there are two aquariums in this first area.

Once you are able to bet in cockfights, go to the arena on the far left of the map. Most of the cockfight

you have available. If you do not win, simply load your saved game and try again. Repeat this as
many times as desired.
