7. Midnight Club: Los Angeles South Central Achievements

SC

Your missions are paged to you and appear in the bottom of left corner of your screen. You can check which missions you have available, completed missions and tutorials by pressing the back button to access your GPS. Then press cn_Y to activate your mission log. Use cn_RB/ cn_LB to scroll through different tabs.

I am going to inform you of each mission available to you, the vehicle the opposition drives, difficulty and the winnings. This is pretty much the best order to go through all the missions. Avoid any race that is not a mission until I say so. I will add any info for any vehicle the opposition use as much as I can.

When you race in races with multiple vehicles, the opposition vehicles change based on factors such as your vehicle, difficulty, vehicle Rep. and overall Rep.

Difficulty is in 4 stages. In the game it is Green (Easy), Yellow (Medium), Orange (Hard), Red (Hardest). I am going to be using the same colour system so you do not get confused. In some races, such as wagers, the difficulty is up to you. There are very few missions on the Red (Hardest) setting. The majority of the races are Yellow (Medium) so I am not going to be adding that to every race.

Unless stated, the race is a Yellow (Medium) race.

Your cash winnings vary, based on your Rep. and on missions of multiple races, dependent on how many races you win. The Prize will be the vehicle you win and its cash value when sold from your garage.

The details on the each race will be set out as follows:

Mission number. Mission name

Information about each race.

(Opposition Vehicle; Difficulty; Prize)

I am going to go through this DLC assuming you have completed the story mode in the main game.

Vehicles and upgrades cost $0 as you are a partner of all of the garages in the game.

If you struggle to beat him, swap your vehicle for a faster vehicle. The Ninja or any Exotic will make this very easy but you need to win a total of 10 races with a Lowrider. The career is done.

19. South Central "Ballerz" Tournament

This is not needed for any achievement and can be skipped if wished. This is the final race and will award you with 100% Completion. If you win this on Hard, you have a new vehicle.

(Orange; Range Rover Sport)

Goal Attacks

Now on to the Goal Attacks. You can complete all of the races even if you not have beaten the story. However, I recommend playing the story first so you get some practice with each track. Each Goal Attack has four criteria elements:

  1. Win the race
  2. Finish the race with less than 25% damage
  3. Beat the time limit
  4. Achieve all goals in the same race

There are a total of 26 races.

To access this mode, follow these steps:

  • Press cn_start
  • Press cn_RB
  • Scroll down to the second option, Goal Attack and press cn_A

The races are split in to 3 sub-menus: Ordered Race, Circuit Race and Landmark Race.

The best vehicle to use is a fully tuned Ninja. Use the weight transfer to help when turning corners. It can be tricky to master this vehicle but once you do, this should be a breeze. With the Ordered and Circuit races, you should need no help. If you have beaten the game, they will be a stroll in the park 99% of the time.

Landmark Races

I am unable to make a map as there seems to be no image for the DLC map online. I tried to take a photo but it is too confusing and not clear enough. I will do my best to explain it. They are not that hard and you have quite a bit of time. If you zoom in on your in game map, you can see the street names (press cn_start to activate the map mode).

DaChiefOfOwnage has been kind enough to contribute some videos, so kudos to him.

Downtown to Randy's

  • From your starting point, head straight until you can turn left on to the 110 Freeway. Follow the freeway around to the 405 Freeway.
  • When you approach the end, take the left road off the freeway and then turn right on to La Clenega Ave.'s bridge.

Hills to Auditorium

  • Immediately turn left. Follow this road and turn left at the corner of Franklin Ave. and Ventura Blvd.
  • You are now on Wilcox Ave. Keep going straight and turn right at the T junction, on to Pico Blvd.

Laurel Canyon to Florence

  • Head straight into the Hills. When you exit the Hills, take the right exit from Hollywood Blvd. on to N. La Brea Ave.
  • Keep going straight, through the warehouses. Turn right off Vermont Ave. and to Rodeo Rd. Turn left at the end and continue on, taking a slight right off Florence Ave.

Ocean to Stadium

  • You start on Jennie St. Head straight through the lane and on to 10 Freeway. Go past the the spaghetti junction and take the first exit on the right.
  • Head towards Centinela Ave. Then turn on to Rodeo Rd. Next, turn right followed by the second left on to Slauson Ave.
  • Turn right when you can no longer go straight and follow Century Blvd. to the end.

Pico to Crenshaw

  • Head straight and then turn left at the end of Pico Blvd. Follow the road and turn left on to Florence Ave. when you have the chance.
  • Take a slight left on to Slauson Ave. followed by a slight right and you are done.

Watts Face Off

  • Head straight for a long time, until you reach the corner of Olympic Blvd. and S. Figueroa St. Turn right here. This is almost vertical with the end target.
  • Keep going straight. There is a lane at the end of S. Figueroa St. which you need to take. Turn right on to Alameda St. and you will be done.

There we go. If you have not got the 5,000 miles, 50 miles of wheelies or 50 miles of two-wheeling, it is time to grind that at. Check out page 7 for details on them.
Congratulations on the completion.

GOOOOAAAAALLLLL!!!!!

Finish all South Central Goal Attacks.
