I like Playboy X's apartment, because it's a pretty nice, unique setting, and gives you a lot of options. It also lets you decide how intense you want it to be, since the cops can't get right up to you there (though they can come up the stairwell to get to the roof of the building behind the apartment), and it's a cool effect to retreat inside and see the helicopter fire cracking the windows. I also like
to call Dwayne to send some backup, and watch from up on the ledge as his boys show up and fight the cops, NOOSE and FIB on the ground below. I also today planted a Packie carbomb on one of my cars outside, and moved my other one close enough that the resulting explosion when I detonated was pretty effective.
It also has several exit points for different escapes.
Another place I like is the Sprunk Warehouse from the first Mission with Manny. You can go back to it later, and it's a cool "last stand" place since the only exit is the front door, and all the cops are coming in through it and trying to pin you down, so seeing how long you last and how many you can take out is cool (though the Spunk soda machine helps you keep your health up).

The hospital at Schottler, It's mainly where I do most of my shootouts.

Yeah stand in the change room and take 'em out at close range with the shotty as they come through the door (stand sort of in front of the mirror). Before long the bodies start to pile up in the door way and hinders the cops when trying to come through.

Sometimes you even have to jump to get out yourself. Then a well placed grenade sends cops flying like you smashed an LCPD Piņata. FUN FUN FUN

Behind the prison, there is a parking lot. Take a large truck and back it up into the corner where 2 walls intersect (you'll see what I mean) Get up there and head toward the guard tower faceing the parking lot. After you get 6 stars it looks like a war zone with all the burnt out cars, bodies, and bullet holes.

Tw@ is also good if you like a bit of a challenge, stay tward the back and the cops will charge you.

Also, get a hummer or SUV and head for the beach at Firefly Island, and start shooting. I actually managed to get 2 helicopters to crash into each other, it was sweet. And it really brings out your inner hillbilly.

There are also some roofs right next to an overpass that are good if you feel like blowing up shit, shoot outs are my favorite GTA past time

I agree, also if you start to get low on health, from the constant barrage of the swat there is always a first aid kit near the front doors, just gotta be lucky not to get caught in the crossfire!

I was playing online free roam with my friend, having a massive shootout at the Sprunk warehouse, we got 6 stars!
He actually escaped the warehouse and stole an Enforcer, however I wasn't so lucky on my escape.
(N.O.O.S.E. killed me with a headshot.)

Edit: Behind the counter at Burger Shot
I found how awesome this is during the GTA IV Olympics Thread challenge

Best place is to stand inside the nuclear reactor chimney somewhere in the southern area of Acter Industrial Park. Go inside that. There's only one way in (Not counting the open chimney, but the cops won't come from there). If you've loaded up on weapons (REMEMBER TO BRING MOLOTOVS), it's great. Sometimes they're almost in, but blindfire and everyone dies. Throw some molotovs outside. The bodies will burn for a long time, because the jerks run into the fire to get to you.

The top of the sprunk factory (Where those ghetto little bridge-things are on the roof) Is one of the BEST places for a shootout. It has cover incase the choppers come after you. The cops can't go up and reach you, and there's a good escape route that leads a couple buildings over. Simply go there and you'll see what I'm talking about.

me and my friends like to go over to the UN building...block off the entrance with buses and go up on the rooftops

i also had a pretty funny shootout in the porno shop on the southern tip of broker...took cover on the wall next to the bottom of the stairs and blasted cops with shotguns as they came down. there was a huge pile of bodies at the bottom of the stairs...and throwing grenades up onto the street (which i could imagine was filled with cops waiting to run down the stairs) got some pretty nice explosions

I went to the beach in Firefly Island today and damn I had an awesome shootout, there are some rocks in the westernmost part of the beach, climb those and start shooting cops will run at you from long distances which makes it easier. I died of a headshot.

My fav place is inside those internet cafes, me and my buddy sit inside behind the desk and as cops come in i blast them with a shotgon, sometimes the door will get stuck open cuz of the bodies making it a bit more challanging so a shoot an RPG outside and blow 10 cars at once lol, its a load of fun.

My favorite place for shootouts with the cops? That would have to be the hospital on cassidy street in brooker (I think that's it, the one you can enter) There is plenty of covour with the chairs so when they come through the door I just head shot them, or try to anyway.

my favorite place is the office right by the helitours. It has 3 stories and (usually) only has 2 ways to get in downstairs. Theres also 3 offices in a hallway you can hide and and blast the cops when they come in.

My one is on a pipe across the road from the medical center in Alderny, It's a great spot for sniping, and you can push any cops who try to shoot you off the ladder.

Not neccesarily the best places for shoot outs but I just love getting chased on foot down the factory areas around Dukes, Broker and Alderney. It's best with 2 or 3 stars so you can go hide, wait for the place to get packed then try sneak your way out. It's a fun little mini-game I made up. I think they're best places because there aren't many other cars or people so it's just you and the police.

Mine is the Turismo Car Shop in Algonquin, shoot out the upstairs windows and stand on the balcony to get easy kills against the police.

The bathroom in the (I think) south/west corner of Middle Park. If you hide behind the 2nd pillar,you can see the cop's coming (in the mirror to your right) before they get to the doorway.:D

There's a construction sight in Hove Beach, (yes it's the same one where you shoot Ivan The Terrible, or not shoot), I usually go up the 1st latter, take cover under the ceiling, and wait for them to come up. This is the easiest way to get the surviving 6-stars for 5 minutes achievement, and I love watchin' the cops climb up, only to get shot and fall down.

FlyingMoose
08-04-2010, 09:55 PM
Depends. If I want a challenge, I just go to Star Junction (Or whatever you call it, the Time Square ripoff.), and start shooting. My record is surviving it for around 2 and a half (real) hours with 6 stars, using no cheats.

If I wanna try my luck with some choppers equipped with nothing but a combat gun, and on top of that huge ass building with the emergency stairs leading up. Although it IS a pain in the ass to get up all the way, sometimes it takes like 4 or 5 minutes.

If I wanna test my sniping skills, is usually use a truck to enter the Alderney State Prison, seize control of a random tower, and start shooting. The great thing about this location is that once you get bored of sniping the guards, the choppers, and the police outside, you can grab another weapon of your choice (I usually go with Knife or SMG.) and try to make it to another Tower, then another one, and maybe across the field and sieze control of the central tower.

Of course I also like the any of the Hospitals, the Playboy X apartment, the Sprunk Factory, and so on...

I like the towers in Meadows Park, the cops won't even use the long ladder, so its even easier to shoot them and. But mostly I go on the streets and i will hide behind cars, corners, etc. and I will pin the police down with some heavy fire (Assault rifle's, Shotguns, grenades, etc.)
But i also like the empty warehouses and buildings.
