"Shooting Upgrades" Guide for True Crime: Streets of LA
Shooting Upgrades Drive to the 24/7 facilities offering shooting upgrades to receive a number of improvements to your weapon and shooting ability, including aim assistance (excellent for neutralizing criminals or shooting a car's tires), fast reload, and the addition of a scope and flash light. Upgrade #1 - Dual-Target Aim Info: Provides ability to auto-aim at two targets at once. Reticle highlights the primary target. Other nearby targets are fired upon when possible. Objectives: Destroy five targets. Avoid civilian targets (three). Gun targets appear one and two at a time during this upgrade trial. The key to completing it is to shoot rapidly when the targets appear on screen and to reload your weapon between target appearances. You don't want to spend time reloading your weapons while a target sits on the screen. The fourth target moves from right to left behind civilian targets; wait for it to move to the area's center before shooting it if you want to play it safe (though you should have time to destroy it on the far right). After the two moving targets (they move toward you), the next target moves from left to right behind civilian targets. Wait for this target to move to the area's center before shooting. Upgrade #2 - Aim Assistance Info: Allows targeting of vital points during precision aim. Reticle turns green when neutralizing point targeted. Reticle turns red when lethal point targeted. Objectives: Achieve seven neutralizing shots. Avoid civilian targets (two). As the targets appear, enter precision aim (hold down the fire button) and aim the reticle at the target's arm (either side) or between the legs. Head do not count as successful neutralizing points in this trial. Don't remain in precision aim the entire time. Exit and re-enter so you recharge slow time, which will provide more opportunity to line up your aim. It only takes one shot to neutralize (if your aim is true). Beware of the civilian targets. Against the moving target, slow down time (re-entering precision aim) and lead the target's neutralizing point slightly. Upgrade #3 - Fast Reload Info: Increases reload speed. Objectives: Destroy or neutralize 10 targets. Avoid civilian targets (one). Avoid head shots. Four targets drop down immediately. Fire as quickly as possible. Alternatively, you could use precision aim to slow time and score neutralizing (not head shots!). The fifth target should be neutralized as it rests behind a civilian. Exit precision aim and shoot the next two targets (one moving) with rapid fire. Four more targets are dropped. Shoot them quickly or use precision aim to slow time and score neutralizing shots. The final target is behind two civilians. The target's arms are covered so use precision aim to score a neutralizing blow on the target's legs. The key to this task is destroying as many as possible when the four targets drop on the screen (twice). Watch for the blinking light at the top of the targets, which indicates the target is about to be raised. Upgrade #4 - Fast Aim Speed Info: Increases reticle speed. Improves aim for moving targets. Objectives: Destroy or neutralize 12 targets. Avoid civilian targets. Avoid head shots. The first batch of targets can be destroyed with rapid fire. Nail the first target then wait for the next two to move past the civilians. The targets then move along the edge of the screen. Destroy them here. The next tough point is after the three targets that drop down. Shoot the next target then enter precision aim mode to shoot the target behind the two civilians. Shoot the last three moving targets quickly to complete the task. Remember you can enter precision aim to slow time temporarily and use neutralizing however, normal aim mode is generally much easier for these moving targets. Upgrade #5 - Laser Sight Info: Engages tracking laser beam during precision aim. While precision aiming, use directional buttons to select desired vital point. Pull away from current target to enter free-aim. Objectives: Achieve 10 neutralizing shots. Avoid civilian targets. Avoid head shots. The targets rest behind wooden barriers but otherwise it's a similar task. Enter precision aiming to score the neutralizing . Between dropped targets, exit and re- enter precision aim to slow down time. Don't forget to watch your ammo level and reload when low so you've got a fresh clip to work with! For the moving targets, be sure to re-enter precision aim for slower time and lead slightly. When the target drops behind the two civilian targets, go for the neutralizing shot on its leg area. Upgrade #6 - Flash Light Info: Illuminates vicinity in dark environments. May blind enemy during precision aim. Objectives: Destroy or neutralize 10 targets. Avoid civilian targets. Avoid head shots. The target range is dark and it'll be tough to spot targets that aren't close. Use precision aim to nail each target with a neutralizing . Enter and re-enter precision aim to slow down time. It will also provide an opportunity to scan for the targets' locations. When you're in precision aim, it's difficult to see how many targets are currently in the range. Slow down time against moving targets and lead the arm or leg to score a neutralizing blow. Upgrade #7 - Scope Info: Provides 2x zoom level during precision aim. Objectives: Perform 10 headshots. Avoid civilian targets. This is one of the tougher gun upgrades to complete. It's all head there are plentiful barriers obstructing targets, and some of the targets move. There's little room for error too as you must hit nearly every target to successfully complete the trial. Remember to enter and re-enter precision aim to slow down time temporarily. This will help you strike the moving targets easier. Also, watch your ammo levels and reload between targets when necessary. For the eighth and ninth targets that appear, keep your targeting reticle on the center barrier aimed near the head level. These two targets move from the right and left sides of the screen into this center area. They're much easier to hit here. Upgrade #8 - Top Accuracy Info: Reduces aim error. Objectives: Destroy or neutralize 12 targets. Achieve 50% accuracy. Avoid head shots and civilian targets. Destroy all of the targets. You should use precision aim to avoid pelting the civilian targets. Enter and re-enter precision aim to recharge slowed time. Don't fire wildly since 50% or above accuracy is mandatory for completing the task successfully. Be very cautious when striking the moving targets (enter precision aim when any appear). You fail the mission should one civilian target perish. Upgrade #9 - Hollow Point Ammo Info: Increases bullet damage factor. Objectives: Destroy or neutralize 15 targets. Avoid civilian targets. Avoid head shots. There's a lot of barriers, moving targets, and obstructing civilians in this one. Any time you don't have a civilian on the screen, remember you can just fire away and forget about precision aim. Destroying the target works just as well as a neutralizing . When the three targets drop down, the remainder of the targets lack civilian obstructions so just start firing like mad. For the first few, use precision targeting. You can try and score neutralizing shots or just aim your reticle at the target and fire as many shots as required to destroy the target (just avoid the head!).
