Favourite Places for Shootouts with Cops?

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 Piñata. 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.
