    To complete all City Takeover gameplay in the Carver Island District, you must complete the following:
    - Complete 15 Activities
    - Purchase 8 Stores
    - Purchase 8 Properties
    - Eliminate 8 Gang Ops

    Activities

    Escort (Tiger Escort)
    Drive around, avoiding the Steelport Zoo vehicles. If the rage meter gets full up, complete tasks to calm the tiger down. Fill up the courage meter to finish the activity.

    Easy: New Baranec. Story related: Act 2, Eye Of The Tiger. $2,000 reward.
    Medium: New Baranec. $4,000 reward.
    Hard: Yearwood. $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: Bridgeport. Story related: Act 2, Insurance Fraud. $70,000 needed. $2,000 reward.
    Medium: Yearwood. $200,000 needed. $4,000 reward.
    Hard: The Grove. $450,000 needed. $6,000 reward.

    Mayhem
    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: Bridgeport. $115,000 needed. $2,000 reward.
    Medium: Yearwood. $200,000 needed. $4,000 reward.
    Hard: Arapice Island. $250,000 needed. $6,000 reward.

    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: Yearwood. $2,000 needed. $2,000 reward (+anything extra you earn).
    Medium: Bridgeport. $3,000 needed. $3,000 reward (+anything extra you earn).
    Hard: The Grove. $4,000 needed. $4,000 reward (+anything extra you earn).

    Trail Blazing (Cyber Blazing)
    Aim for cars and people, but don't hesitate to drive off-course for the flaming areas on the ground for time bonuses. Pass through all of the checkpoints within the time limit to complete the activity, destroying as much as you can in the process to increase the time limit.

    Easy: Bridgeport. Story-related: Act 2, Trail Blazing. 6 checkpoints. $2,000 reward.
    Medium: The Grove. 9 checkpoints. $4,000 reward.
    Hard: Yearwood. 12 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.
