I couldn't take it any more so I got a guide. But I'm pissed off looking for them cos every time I kill one, I have to run from the cops. :mad2::wtf:

Yeah it's rough. How many do you have? I'm rockin' about 89 left.

I find that if you can stand away from the pigeon (and still see it), crouch and use your sniper rifle. It'll attract less attention than standing in the open using your pistol.

Also if you are in a vehicle, drive by with the pistol to kill it and usually you won't get any stars. Just tap LB to get the aiming redicle on the pigeon then fire 1 shot. Simple as pie.

I need about 180-something. Reason why I got the guide. I know it's cheating in a way but I'll never be able to do it otherwise. And I've done a few from the car, but how do you know you're on target before you press LB?

That's the one I'm using. Very helpful and thorough. Plus they are done as a walkthrough style so each one is closely linked to the next so you don't have to go up and down the islands if you know what I mean. I'm sure to use their other guides towards my 100% as well.

What you do is you press LB which will bring up the circle with the dot in the middle. Don't hold it long enough to shoot, Niko will pull the gun out and point.

So say the circle is pointing out at the ocean and you are aiming for a bird at the end of the dock and you need to aim down and to the right. Softly press LB, the circle should come up, then you let go and drag it down, lightly press LB again to see if you're on target and repeat until the dot is directly on the bird.

Then you fire your gun. You have to hold LB for about 1 second for Niko to actually fire. Make sense?

No no no easiest way ever.. Get a heli.. Trust me.. First i was driving to each one, then i said F it. Took a taxi to the Heli tours jack one and when pigeon hunting.. And when you get the cops just jump in take off for a few minutes, and no more piggies. Took about 3-4 hours to get em all.. With a couple breaks thrown in exploring shit..

Getting the cops on my ass every time i shoot a pigeon is very annoying, i wish R* just stuck with hidden packages.

it took me 4 hours (using the guide) to get the 56 pigeons in Alderney, just because of the cops that kept coming after me.

Yeah both the pigeons and the jumps take awhile. It took me a solid 3/4 days to get all the pigeons playing a couple hours everyday.

The pigeons you have to look for them and evade the cops, the jumps you have to look for them and make sure you don't die. Both equally annoying, but there aren't 200 jumps, so I'd say the pain in the butt award goes to the pigeons.

I have started using the Sub Machine Gun. (Not sure of the game name, Looks like a Heckler and Koch though) If I just pop one bullet with that, I have noticed the cops don't bother me as much. It is not as loud. I have only killed about 22 though so maybe I am wrong.

Down to the last island now. CBF to do it after just done 144 of them :D I'll be done and hopefully the jumps by tomorrow.

Edit: Pigeons done. Don't know which side mission to do next.

Good job Chandler! I'm working on the stunt jumps then I'm at 100%, and let me tell you, some of them make the pigeons look like childs play.

There are some that make you go on the expressway, cutting between cars, and having to land in the perfect spot. Pain in the blanky blank.

Exactly the reason I printed out the map, and mark off the pigeons as I go along with an X on the printed map. :)

I've been using a map, and I still have one left over...and now I'm really confused.

What are the rewards for killing the pidgeons other than adding up to the 100%.

You get an apache helicopter, I think. Not sure where it's parked though.

I got 121 pigeons I got the first 50 in aldgonquin but I'm suppose to have 122 so Im going to have to go down the list AGAIN.

I really wish they implemented that map collector thing from VCS that shows what hidden packages you have gotten

Yo, if you get a wanted level just use the cheat to get it off. Its that easy. And doesn't disable the achievment.
