To complete all City Takeover gameplay in the Downtown District, you must complete the following:
- Complete 16 Activities
- Purchase 10 Stores
- Purchase 8 Properties
- Eliminate 8 Gang Ops


Guardian Angel
Aim in front of cars with the Annihilator to destroy them. Avoid damaging Pierce's vehicle as much as you can. In the second part of the activity, use the McManus 2015 to eliminate enemies one by one, or shoot their vehicles multiple times to make it explode.

Hard: Henry Steel Mills. Story related: Act 1, Guardian Angel. $2,000 reward.

Heli Assault
Use the Tornado's homing missiles to eliminate vehicles to protect Pierce. Fire the missile before you have locked on to the vehicle to take it down quickly. Fly relatively low and keep checking your radar for enemy helicopters. Allow Pierce to reach all of his stops to complete the activity.

Easy: Henry Steel Mills. Three stops. $2,000 reward.
Medium: Sunset Park. Four stops. $4,000 reward.
Hard: Loren Square. Five stops. $6,000 reward.

Insurance Fraud
Drive to a bonus area and aim to bounce off multiple cars for maximum money and adrenaline. Large car combos can rack up money quickly. Obtain the amount of money specified before the time runs out to complete the activity. If you have adrenaline once the timer finishes, the activity will not end until adrenaline has run out. If you are struggling with earning money in these areas, go to a freeway to get hit by faster cars.

Easy: Sunset Park. $80,000 needed. $2,000 reward.
Medium: Henry Steel Mills. $200,000 needed. $4,000 reward.
Hard: Loren Square. $450,000 needed. $6,000.

Prof. Genki
Focus on killing as many mascots as you can and evading the traps for bonuses. Shoot the appropriate targets and collect presents to make life easier for yourself. Kill mascots within a short period of time for a combo bonus, and aim for headshots for even more bonus money. Hunters are very difficult to kill. It is often better to ignore them where possible and focus your aim on the easier money targets.

Easy: Loren Square. Story related: Act 1, Professor Genki. $1,000 needed. $2,000 reward (+anything extra you earn).
Medium: Loren Square. $2,000 needed. $2,000 reward (+anything extra you earn).
Hard: Henry Steel Mills. $3,500 needed. $3,500 reward (+anything extra you earn).

Tank Mayhem
Aim to maintain a high combo whilst focusing on the marked targets. Destroy surrounding police/STAG vehicles if you are having trouble. You should also make use of the repair stations if your tank takes too much damage.

Easy: Loren Square. Story-related: Act 1, Tank Mayhem. $125,000 needed. $2,000.
Medium: Loren Square. $350,000 needed. $4,000 reward.
Hard: Loren Square. $400,000 needed. $6,000 reward.

Aim for headshots on the enemy drivers to eliminate cars quickly. When your driver is making a delivery, eliminate as many of the enemy as possible before you set off again. You may have to headshot Specialists from choppers, shoot buyers that do not want to pay and kill pursuing police before advancing. You have a limited supply of explosives, so use these on Brutes.

Easy: Henry Steel Mills. Story-related: Act 1, Trafficking. Two stops. $2,000 reward.
Medium: Loren Square. Three stops. $4,00 reward.
Hard: Sunset Park. Four stops. $6,000 reward.

Note: The one Gang Op that people tend to have a problem finding is in the centre of the Downtown District. It is on top of the building at the marked location. You will need a helicopter to reach it.

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.
