How to Escape Level 5 Police Chases
Work-In-Progress: Check back soon for new updates.
Method #1: Train Escape
- One of the easiest methods for escape involves the raised L-Line trains throughout the city. After raising your wanted level to 5, hop into a train and ride it to safety.
Method #2: ctOS Building Underground Garage
- Travel to the ctOS multi-floored pavilion in The Loop. Bring a car to escape through the front door when you have full stars. You’ll also need to be able to activate vehicle blockers and garage doors.
- Start on the upper floor and start causing havoc. Go on a rampage with your weapons to draw in the police. Continue to fight with the police on the upper floors until your wanted level increases to 5.
- Once you do, hop in the car and travel to the road directly west of the building. There’s a small underground parking lot north of the train station with blockers and a garage shutter.
- Drive to the underground lot, activate the blockers to stop any pursuing cars, then hack the garage shutter. Raise it, drive in, then lower it and park.
- Once you’re behind the garage door, run to the locked door on foot, unlock it by hacking the switch console, then wait in the hallway until you’re clear.
Method #3: Parking Lot Hiding Spot
- Any of the tall parking lots work. After hitting wanted level 5, drive to a high floor of the lot. The third or fourth floor will do.
- Don’t go to the open-air top floor or you’ll be spotted by helicopters. Stay below a roof and select to hide in your car once the police have lost sight.
- Sit and hide until they give up the chase.
