    Far Cry frustration...AAAAARRRGGHHH!

    Okay, up to now, I've refused to consult ANY of the walkthroughs, cheats, etc. for this great game. But, I've been stuck on the da*n freighter for over five days. So, I'm reaching out for a hint from the masses. After blowing up the freighter's fuel tank, the helicopter carrying Crowe shows up and starts tearing Jack apart. I've used the rocket launcher, all the ammo from different machine guns, and even tried crashing the hang-glider into the helicopter. Nothing has worked. Any ideas on how to frag Crowe's copter and escape??????

    ok, im going to assume you have gone into the the ships main deck and got the rocket launcher and all the extra ammo from the back room.. so after like you said you blow up the fuel tank go to bow and hide behind the diff objects mast, anchor supports etc etc, and sneak out often and attack the helo, it can be done, before the ships sinks with you on it!!!! :eek: its hard but it can be done!!! :saywhat:

    PS you gotta be accurate with the rocket launcher i think it takes at least 5 direct hits with rockets and then maybe a few shots with the gun, good luck!!! and also if its any help,, i was stuck on same point for a week and i gave up playing for a few days cause i was mad like you... :bouncy:

    No fair!! I thought there might be a shortcut.

    At least I know to stick with the rocket launcher as the best way to get the chopper. I think I'll take some time off from FC before trying again, though. Gotta get out more while the warm summer months are still here.

    Thanks for the tips! :cheers:

    You only need to take out the guy manning the helicopter gun. Take him out while you hide behind some boxes from the rest of the group of mercenaries (about 8-10 of them). Throw a couple grenades their way.
    After the helicopter is done, get the guy on the scaffolding with the Gatling gun. The rest aren't so hard.

    Anyone else have a bug where, when you complete a level entirely, move to the next and then die without hitting a save point, it doesn't save the fact that you beat the previous level? ARGHH happened to me on the later part where you're floating up the room to the air shaft.

    coffee, you're talking about the wrong level

    jswriter, you need to get the rocket launcher and you also need to make sure that you're on the tallest part of the ship (the ship's bridge), and you have to make sure that you're shots are accurate. I suggest the rocket launcher and i forget the weapon's name, but there is another rifle whose secondary weapon is a less power grenade launcher thing. Use both. Run from from the left side of the bridge to the right and vice versa for cover, you can't blow up the helicopter but if you damage it enough it flies off damaged

    good luck, i know i was stuck on that one level for a couple of days myself. Wait until you get to some of the more frustrating levels. This one doesn't compare to some of the later ones

    Easier Way

    I also had problems with this one until I found a nice hint. Make sure you locate the small island with 2 palm trees nearest to the boat. As soon as you plant the bomb jump off the boat and swim to the island. You probably won't make it there unscathed. Use the trees as cover and it is a piece of cake.

    More great tips! I haven't tried firing from the highest point on the freighter, so that's good to know. I did try jumping from the ship, but not from the stern and swimming to that island.

    Thanks, Diesel and Meddude!!

    oh, crap, I missed the 'crowe' reference. That one was really hard, you have to hit almost all of your rocket shots on the helicopter, hide behind the mast on the front of the ship, wait for the firing to stop (it goes in bursts), jump out and fire at the nose or tail of the helicopter (account for which way it's moving).

    Wow! I just tried your "swim to the island" technique and it worked easily. Eight rocket hits and away flew Crowe in his burning chopper. Although it went down in flames and Doyle referred to Crowe as shark bait, I suspect I haven't seen the last of that wise-ass mercenary.

    Thanks, again, Med!!
