After a few tries and getting stuck on the sinking ship what i did was set teh detonator and swam as fast as I could for that sunken fishing vessel behind the boat. If your not far enough away it will kill you and yous till lose some health.
I used teh fishing boat for cover and kept hosing the Blackhawk with rockets and then 25mm grenades from the OICW and then the P90 cause its high rate of fire means if I hit more bullets would be on target.
1. Yes, fire around 10 rockets and make sure they DO hit the helicopter. You may need to fire some additional granades or sth. 2. DO NOT try to KILL the guy behind the machine gun. You can't do it, so don't waste your time on it. 3. It doesn't go harder later (at least not on next two levels), just a typical farcry fun. So far I only found this moment so irritating. This is the worst moment of the game. Firstly the game looses the sens of reality a lot when you have to hit the standard helicopter with 10 rockets (gosh...) Secondly, helicopter doesn't show any damage no matter how many hits it took. So after few times of trying to shoot it down I started finding other ways todo it, wasting a lot of time, because I'd thought 'that was the case'. Ehh... This moment really pissed me off ;-)
This part of the game frustrated the hell out of me too for a long time. But there is an easy way to destroy the helicopter. After killing everyone on ship, drive a humvee down to the water below the hang glider. You actually can drive back up that cliff, but you have to practice a couple of times cause it is tricky. When you have got the hang of it, leave the humvee down on the beach near the water and swim over to the tanker. Plant the bomb, and immediately run and jump over edge of the ship and swim directly for your jeep. Do not stop. The ship explodes when you are almost to land. It should leave u with full health and 1/4 armor. Jump in jeep and drive up cliff, now keep driving to that third radio tower that you blew up a while back. Run now to the little underground room. This provides perfect shelter to be able to fight against the chopper. Took me three tries once i thought of this strategy! Good luck.
Well I have to agree about the chopper bit, just too damn difficult, or so I thought. I tried every piece of advice that I could find on the net regarding defeating Crowes helicopter and failed every time. If I jumped into the water to swim to an island (everyone said 'ignore the advice about going to the front of the boat') I lost all my armour and some health. Even if I did make it to an island (this after people saying Crowe wouldn't shoot me if I was underwater!!) and hid behind a tree or on the other island, behind the boat wreckage (he does shoot you!) in fact I seemed to have tried every possible scenario I could think of, even going off and finding a humvee and another time trying to find a small boat (what happened when I went back and returned with one of my dinghy's from earlier was that apart from the netting hanging from the sides of the ship the rest of the ship had disappeared, eh?). Finally I gave those ideas up and what worked for me was this: After planting the explosive I walked to the front of the ship. When it exploded I walked up to the cabin where I had picked up the health packs and the rocket launcher in the first place. Then I just took repeated shots at the helicopter firing my rounds through the window in the room at the back, NOT the doorway as that still gives Crowe a good target to aim for. So with less of a target to aim for he kept missing, but I didn't hahaha. After hitting him a few times he flew away with smoke streaming from the chopper. Have to say though, I love the AI in this game, gives the player a run for his money and knowing that the game 'thinks' makes it more fun.
bluetacWhat worked for me was to use the rails or mast as cover .i used the rocket launcher on it and only fired at it when it was close enough that you was sure to hit it .Fireing through the rigging then hiding till it circled round if you keep all that rigging between you and him n duck down untill you reload u will do it . I did , cant remember if it just flies of or you do blow it up but it IS hard took me about 6 times n about the same to land on the ship in the first place, Damn bliders .lol hope this helps .
This place where i delete the game from computer.I'm hiding too, and i hit the helicopter a lot of time, but no luck.The ship is always sink.
