    To complete all City Takeover gameplay in the entire city of Steelport, you must complete the following for each of the disctricts:

    Stanfield District:
    - Complete 13 Activities
    - Purchase 8 Stores

    - Eliminate 8 Gang Ops
    See Hack the Planet

    Carver Island:

    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.

    thomaskoratFor finding the missing Gang Ops: Look for the non-purple areas on the map, then VTOL-fly that region to discover it.
    I found the Snatch and Trafficking to be the hardest and last to do.

    Mike MarcelaisI didn't have much trouble with Snatch and Trafficking. Heli-Assault and Escort were my nemesis.
