Top Ten Hardest Missions in the Grand Theft Auto Series

Missions from GTA are fun to do when you steal jets, doing heists or even help a player's friend out. The other missions... not so great for other gamers.

The Top Ten

1 Supply Lines (GTA San Andreas)

RC vehicles are terribly controlled toys you have to use, but this mission's difficult for gamers to do if they try to find a way to beat it. You have to take out some rival delivery boys using the RC plane to shoot them down till you run out of fuel. Flying the plane is much harder when you try to avoid hitting buildings, lights or vehicles. Took 7 tries for me to finish it unless you try to focus and concentrate on the targets. - TechnicallyIDoComics

One word. Control, that's all. - Delgia2k

2 The Driver (GTA Vice City)

For those who play Grand Theft Auto Vice City, not all missions you can pass ain't that easy, especially this one. In this mission, you have to win a street race to beat a fat shack of turd named Hilary (who has a fast car better than the crappy car you're driving), but problem here is that he can ram you off the road and 2 stars wanted level appears when cops shows up. I had hell of a time passing this and it took 13 tries to solve this situations. This is far the most frustrated mission Grand Theft Auto Vice City has given us. - TechnicallyIDoComics

Who thought it's a good idea to start a race with a slow car?!? Hilary has Sabre Turbo, which is pretty fast and quite exotic, and you get the cheap and slow car, Sentinel. - Delgia2k

This mission took me ages to do

3 Dildo Dodo (GTA Vice City)

For this mission, you drops some leaflets for a director while using the seaplane. Bad thing about it is that the plane's controls are terrible when you try to nose up and down and you must reach hard to reach checkpoints to get it done. - TechnicallyIDoComics

4 Bomb Da Base: Act 2 (GTA III)

This part of act ain't much easy as the other act, you have to protect 8-Ball when he tries to trigger a bomb in a rival gang's boat. Thing is 8-Ball has injured hands and he can't shoot them but rush himself to a suicide mission. It frustrated for gamers to take out all goons with a sniper where so much action is going on. Took 4 tries, but shoot them in order where they try to shoot 8-Ball is one way to go if you hurry up. - TechnicallyIDoComics

5 High Wire (GTA Vice City Stories)

You must use the chopper with a magnet to pick up containers before time runs out. Hardest part is you must rescue a cartel from bikers and this ain't easy grabbing his car with the chopper's magnet while he's driving around getting shot especially around street lights and palm trees. - TechnicallyIDoComics

Man,out of all missions,his one gave me the hardest time,especially when I have to save the cartel from bikers - DejanKalinic

6 Espresso-2-Go! (GTA III)

Doing this mission as intended can be tough and frustrating, I found out when I played this game blind. However, I came up with a tedious but safer way to complete the mission: Drive all over the city until all nine kiosks are highlighted on the map, as you go kill the cartel goons in them. The timer doesn't start until you destroy the first one so you can simply identify where they are and take them down one by one with the rocket launcher.

If you're gonna do this awful rush hour mission, you're gonna need a fast car to take out some drug stands before time runs out. Cops will be roaring all over you so make it quick and concentrate on the road. - TechnicallyIDoComics

The cops, the mafias armed with shotguns, and the fact that cars get destroyed easily... This is the worst mission in Grand Theft Auto 3, without doubt. - Delgia2k

7 Keep Your Friends Close (GTA Vice City)

Enemies are here to rob you and you must defend your cash from them. Bad thing is they're heavily armed and it's impossible to survive this hellacious mission if you have a strong weapon or no exact choice but to use a cheat code. You also have to kill a guy who betrayed you and you have to run back to your office to take out a hard boss with everything you can to end it. There's no checkpoints on this finale mission in Grand Theft Auto Vice City, so good hell of a luck you're gonna need. - TechnicallyIDoComics

8 Robbing Uncle Sam (GTA San Andreas)

Its hard to protect a homie when you must put crates in the back of a moving truck from soldiers using a forklift. Another bad thing is you must outrun them and Ryder here is getting shot behind the truck when he's covering up the crates. Why use the truck's door to close it and sit in a passenger seat, you smoking idiot? - TechnicallyIDoComics

Too many damn weekend soldiers!

9 Wrong Side of the Tracks (GTA San Andreas)

Damn played it 1000 times

I bet it first try

I always know what to do in this mission, but Big Smoke gets all whiny and said "All you have to do is follow the damn train, CJ! " Dude, he doesn't even know how to shoot those Hispanic gangsters right.

By far the absolutely most frustrating and infuriating mission in san andreas.
I've played the game multiple times all the way to the end but every single time I had to redo this mission at least 30 times. Sometimes I'd just quit the game because of how frustrating it got.

12 Exchange (GTA III)

You have to waste your own money to give it to an annoying cow named Catalina and you must chase her while outrunning the spawning Cartels trying to kill you. If you have a rocket launcher you better shoot Catalina in a chopper till time runs out. - TechnicallyIDoComics

Unneccesary thing 4 claude to do

Choose "Obvious" route and you'll fight through SWAT teams and cops. Worst of all flying the chopper through windmills while taking out Merryweather and carrying gold at the same time.
