I just made it to the top of the Agency Tower and got the High Flyer achievement. It was tricky! Have any of you other people made it all the way to the top?

jump off into the water for another.

4 or so of the agility races require you to climb it again..it's a pain in the ass.

That was a fun achievement, I got it with only 3 stars (I had help of a buddy though). I didn't realise there was the small pond you could jump in to get the achievement so I jumped all the way out into the big ocean type thing from the top of the tower.

I made it up there also (too 3 tries) and I also jumped in the water (on my first try).

Don't try to jump in the ocean if you look closely you'll see a tiny bit of water flowing under a small bridge into a tiny "pool" jump in there. smile.gif

that one was free lol

I just snagged my third Agility star today, and I'm going to try and climb the Tower tomorrow.

Aside from High Flyer and Base Jumper, you can also get Shot Putter up there. There's a light bulb you can shoot down and then chuck off the roof for the achievement.

I found a YouTube vid of some guy doing it with two stars... wasted a half hour trying to replicate it, and failed sad.gif.



I need to get my 4th Driving star and climb it in the SUV. biggrin.gif

yeah I couldn't do it with only 2 stars... I got as far as the point where you need to jump from one tower to the other... I just didn't make it laugh.gif

jumping out into the water I shot for the little pool but my left leg caught a rock just under the surface and that killed me... guess I'll climb it again.

For the shotputter I just grabbed a dead body and climbed on top of a bridge, jumped and threw it +10G happy.gif

Got up there on the second try and jumped into the ocean on the first try. You gotta be on the tallest tower, i aimed at the pool but ended up flying to the ocean (4 stars)


I wanted to trow something off but couldent find any objects sad.gif

Also to the guy who said it feels like ur doing the jump for real, i get that too, a lil adranaline rush, guess ots my fear of heights tongue.gif

ugh... for the rooftop race achievements you'll need to get to the top of the tower 4 more times (3 for the rooftop races starting on the ground level around the tower and once more for the "goin' home" race that starts on the Los Muertos island).

after those I was a frigging pro at getting to the top of the tower... I can probably do it in under 2 minutes at this point. and despite the fact that I have 4 star agility I bet I could do it with 2 stars knowing what I know now.

I made it up with 3 stars the first time only to realize I can't get the orb at the top. I went back up to get the orb later when I had 4 stars and it wasn't nearly as frightening. The extra jump height makes it easier to see and adjust what you are doing.
