Trivia

  • The reporter will drive across the staunton and portland island before coming back to portland then he will run upstairs and steal a car so you will need to chase him in a vehicle. He will be easier to beat than in a boat. Also when he is still driving the boat he won't take any damage if you crash into him. A video of this can be seen here.
  • The player doesn't need to exactly steal the police boat and use it to destroy the reporters boat you can use sniper with a few shoots it's done also faster and easier. This can be seen here.
