View Full Version : I miss a fuckin' pigeon! The game's fault !

06-14-2008, 10:42 PM
So I was poppin' the pigeons to get 100% , I have the brady games guide , so I can spot the pigeons easily, some of them are tricky to shoot but with the guide you can get around it rather easy. But the thing is, the game made a mistake, some of you know some of the pigeons are in the same spot right. 2 pigeons in the same spot at about 4 locations, the thing is the game memory forgot to count a pigeon that I shot right after another one in the same spot, so the game says I killed 199 pigeons instead of all 200 , so I'll never get 100% unless I start a brand new game from 0% , that sucks , GTA sucks and full of bugs, If I have one tip to give you all, when you see 2 pigeons in the same spot, don't shoot them fast, shoot one , wait for the xxx pigeons left writing to disappear , then shoot the other, it could fuck up your 100% game completion hope like mine, by the way GTA SUCK BALLS!!!

...and you expect positive rep?

Just sell the game then.

Yes, for LEGO: Indiana Jones! w00t!

I'm serious guys , I shot all 200 pigeons , but the fact of shooting a pigeon right after another one created a bug that killed my hopes of getting 100% , I know I complained a lot about this game , but this bug is like the last slap in the face from gta , Again I'm serious, if you're still on your way to 100% , don't shoot a pigeon right after another one, you could get thaT SAME bug and that stops all your hopes of getting 100% . I'm serious it's not a stupid joke.

Stop ranting on about the game, and try paragraphing nobody likes to read a whole wall of text, nor do TRUE GTA fans like to hear ranting!

I had the same thing happen to me. Turns out I'd missed one on the Statue of Happiness by about an inch, but I was going so fast I didn't notice. I didn't blame the game, though. :P

Lol, Nobgoblin Aha.
Dude, seriously im sure I can speak for everyone when I say your starting to annoy me.
All you do is post stupid shit and use stupid words like "I was poppin' and, GTA SUCKS BALLS"
If you want to talk shit about IV do it somewhere else.
Or better yet, start a thread on it.

Seriously, you could've missed a pigeon somewhere. From what you're saying, it seems that you have the guide book and you've visited every location to try to shoot all the pigeons but failed and missed one. Then, you THINK it might be the games' fault.

You don't have to start over from 0%, just start over shooting every pigeon and use a paper to mark out the numbers. This happened to me too, exact same situation but I didn't blame the game. Seriously, we always try to blame the tools if things go wrong, but this time, it's simply utter nonsense. Just rehunt the flying rats again! It isn't that hard.

No, it isn't. Some places are tricky when it comes to flying rats. Well, you thought you might've shot it, but it's actually VERY hidden. I think those few are the ones on the old railway in Algonquin, NUCA building, and the one in Broker on the Bus Stop near the weapons store. Also, the ones on the Screamer and Statue of Happiness are tricky. See if you've missed anyone of them at these locations.

This happend to me in the game SKATE.
I have 42 out of 44 achievments.
One is your soposed to have 2000 EXP. points online, and i have 2012, and yet, nothing.
pisses me off sometime.
But in your case, that "SUX BALLS!!1"

06-15-2008, 07:45 PM
Wow another GTA IV moaner, try researching all them over and see if you missed the last one:D.

06-15-2008, 08:04 PM
201 pigeons! !...you may have my extra one:zcab:

btw....has anyone seen a link for a video walkthru of collecting the, flying rats?

06-15-2008, 09:46 PM
I believe that if you go to www.whattheydonotwantyoutoknow.com the maps of the flying rats there identify which ones you have killed by making a bigger circle on it. Not 100% sure about this, but it's what I assume from the times I've gone there.

this is not true! when i would see 2 pigeons together i just though a grenade and moved on. and i still killed all the pigeons!
btw: try saying something positive 4 once.

Sorry about that Bigbro. Go bug take2interactive about this. Maybe the more complaints they hear the sooner something can be done. This problem does exist, I am in the same bloody boat. I have stared at each and every location looking befuddled at the complete emptiness knowing fully well that I shot the flying rat at this location as well.

07-20-2008, 10:49 PM
i'd say ya missed one, i got to 199 and found that i missed one on a barge at the northern end of algonquin. also the statue of happiness has some tricky to get pigeons on it. my bet is ya missed one and that's your own fault. stop complaining. if you did legitimately miss one tell R* about the glitch. don't complain here.

four words for your complaining. game stop fifteen bucks
