To complete all City Takeover gameplay in the Stanfield District, you must complete the following:
- Complete 13 Activities
- Purchase 8 Stores
- Purchase 6 Properties
- Eliminate 8 Gang Ops


Guardian Angel
Eliminate enemies one by one with the McManus 2015 to allow Kinzie to get to her vehicle. Once she is there, you follow her around in a helicopter, shooting enemy vehicles with your Annihilator. Aim in front of enemies to destroy them quickly.

Easy: Ashwood. Story related: Act 2, Guardian Angel. $6,000 reward.

Heli Assault
Use the Vulture's machine gun to eliminate vehicles, as the rockets have no homing ability. Fly relatively low and keep checking your radar for enemy helicopters. Protect Kinzie to allow her to go to all stops to complete the activity.

Easy: Brickston. Story related: Act 2, Heli Assault. Three stops. $2,000 reward.
Medium: Ashwood. Four stops. $4,000 reward.
Hard: Salander. Six stops. $6,000 reward.

Move around and use your weapons to destroy as many objects, people and vehicles as possible. To obtain high scores, chain together large combos. Areas of fencing and piles of trash/boxes are ideal for this. If you have access to the VTOL, use this to make the Mayhem missions a lot easier, especially for the harder missions.

Easy: Salander. Story related: Act 2, Mayhem. $90,000 needed. $2,000 reward.
Medium: Brickston. $200,000 needed. $4,000 reward.
Hard: Ashwood. $300,000 needed. $6,000 reward.

The contacts/hos will either be guarded by gang-members, or in a car, driven by a gang-member. It may or may not be required that you eliminate those gang members before you can recruit the contacts/hos.

Easy: Salander. 3 contacts. $2,000 reward.
Medium: Burns Hill. 5 contacts. $4,000 reward.
Hard: Ashwood. 6 contacts. $6,000 reward.

Trail Blazing (Cyber Blazing)
Aim for the blue tanks and blue flames on the floor, whilst avoiding the red firewalls. Destroying blue tanks will give you time bonuses each time you pass a checkpoint. Pass all checkpoints within the time limit to complete the activity.

Easy: Salander. Story-related: Act 2, Cyber Blazing. 11 checkpoints. $2,000 reward.
Medium: Burns Hill. 14 checkpoints. $4,000 reward.
Hard: Ashwood. 17 checkpoints. $6,000 reward.

Note: If you want to complete an area quickly you can use the 'City Takeover' upgrade, which automatically completes all City Takeover gameplay for an entire hood. Two of these Upgrades can be used in the game. One is purchased from the Upgrades menu for $40,500 (Level 28 required), whilst the other is unlocked as a reward for completing 'Stag Party' and returning Josh.
