My Least Favorite Mission in Grand Theft Auto History

/ Dec 2nd, 2015 No Comments

Least Favorite GTA Mission

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas recently made its way onto the PlayStation 3 through a stealth release on the PlayStation Store. The port features enhanced visuals and trophy support, much like the latest Xbox 360 version of the game.

Originally released in 2004, GTA San Andreas centers around the West Coast gang culture and tensions between citizens and police in the 1990s. The large open world, mission variety and amazing soundtrack made the game one of my favorites ever, although it narrowly missed making my top five list.

However, the release of the game on a new platform got me thinking about one of my least favorite missions in the Grand Theft Auto franchise.

Zero’s Hero

One of the game’s more pointless storylines involves a remote-controlled vehicle shop owner, Zero, who was voiced by Arrested Development actor David Cross. Aside from having almost no relevance to the main plot, Zero is annoying. He constantly barks orders at main character CJ as he helps Zero advance his own selfish desire to defeat his archenemy.

Of course, CJ doesn’t track down and kill Zero’s nemesis, instead helping him in a series of missions using Zero’s RC vehicles. Why Zero, an RC enthusiast, needs CJ, probably not an RC enthusiast, to control the vehicles is anyone’s guess.

The worst of Zero’s quests is Supply Lines, in which players send an RC airplane through GTA’s version of San Francisco to shoot down delivery men.

Shooting up the closest delivery man, a biker, is easy enough, but flying around San Fierro to destroy a couple of drivers in vans becomes frustrating in a hurry. The plane’s controls are difficult to get the hang of, and you are forced to master them while you avoid buildings and trees. Plus, you must use the plane’s weapons to destroy moving vans, and potentially drivers who escape from their burning vehicles. If your vehicle takes too much damage or you crash the plane, you’ll have to restart.

Despite all these obstacles, this mission still would not be so infuriating if it weren’t for a fuel gauge. If you can destroy all the suppliers but don’t have enough fuel to get the plane back to the roof of Zero’s building, all your efforts will have gone to waste.

There have been plenty of bad errands players have been sent on in GTA history, but none are worse than Supply Lines. Why couldn’t CJ just drive around in a car and shoot these delivery guys by himself?

GTA San Andreas is available now for PlayStation 3 for $14.99. It also available on various platforms, including Xbox 360 and mobile devices.
