This achievement is for beating the 12 rooftop races from the original game. Any races added by the DLC do not count towards this achievement.

Some, although not all, roof top races require a 4-star agility rating, and you need at least a 3-star agility rating to get to the top of the Agency Tower. So it might be best to wait to do the roof top races when you have a 4-star agility rating. It also might be good to wait till you have successfully cleansed an area before attempting a roof top race, just so you don’t have pesky bad buys shooting at you while you're running, although its more annoying when you are trying to do the road races, but that is your choice.

I have sorted the races by which area they can be found in. The Numbers Correspond to the order they are listed in the achievements menu in Crackdown.


**Los Muertos**
1. Los Muertos Rooftops
Location: Los Muertos, southern island.
From Nearest Supply Point: North from the Hillside Housing supply point.

2. Rooftop Acrobatics
Location: Los Muertos, southern island.
From Nearest Supply Point: South from the Royal Vista supply point, basically across the street.

3. Around the Wheel
Location: Los Muertos, southern island.
From Nearest Supply Point: Just head south from the Social Security supply point, towards the ferris wheel

4. La Mugre Skyline
Location: Los Muertos, southern island.
From Nearest Supply Point: Just north from the Social Security supply point.

8. Goin' Home
Location: Los Muertos, southern island.
From Nearest Supply Point: It's basically next to the Los Muertos Rooftop race. So head north from the Hillside Housing supply point.
--This race may take you a few tries. Don’t get Discouraged!! Also, make sure you jump in one of the two Los Muertos Vehicles that are located as you come to the first road checkpoint, as the next part of the race requires you to travel back to the keep and you can use a vehicle to save time and drive through the checkpoints. Just be careful, even though you have over 11 minutes to complete the race, once you get to the keep area you will have significantly less time in between checkpoints to reach the next one. The race timeout counter started on me at a couple different locations, but I still made it to each checkpoint in time.

I have also included the YouTube Video of Goin’ Home, same one as Beanpotter posted, by CandiedSkull, since it is thought to be the hardest one. However, it is a lot easier once you know where all the check points are.


**The Agency**
5. Top of the World
Location: The Agency.
From Nearest Supply Point: Climb out of the Agency Garage and head east.

6. Watch Your Step
Location: The Agency.
From Nearest Supply Point: Same courtyard as Top of The World. Head east out of the Agency Garage.

7. Leap of Faith
Location: The Agency.
From Nearest Supply Point: Climb out of the Agency Garage, and head to the southwestern area.


**Volk District “The Den”**
9. The Wolf's Teeth
Location: Volk, southern island
From Nearest Supply Point: Head northeast from the Retreat. It should be near the eastern bridge of the two bridges in front of you.

11. Ascending the Cells
Location: Volk, southern island
From Nearest Supply Point: Head south from Maxim's Arch.

12. High Volk-age
Location: Volk, southern island
From Nearest Supply Point: This race is south of the Retreat supply point. It's by the giant statue of the Volk's logo…The Hand Holding the Giant Red Cog, West of the Large Ship where Boris Mikhailov was.


**Shai-Gen Corporation District - "The Corridor"**
10. Wings Are for Suckers
Location: Shai-Gen, northern island
From Nearest Supply Point: Head northeast from the Comfortitude, LTD. supply point.
Kojiiriin3-Star is NOT necessary to reach the top of the Agency building (though it takes some significant creativity and a lot of patience to make it up there with only 2).

But I definitely accomplished it with only a 2-Star rating.

eightdivinesI clearly remember gaining this, but when I check what achievements I got and didn't, on my page, it said I don't have it.
Maybe I need to check again... and don't give me examples, cus I have an idea which it might be.

eightdivinesRight now, I checked my page, and I noticed around 1,440g got added, and there I saw the achivement, on most recent.

Claptrap NLGood solution. Now I finally know where I have to go for this achievement.

PowerofhouseDoes anyone know if this can be done in CO-OP? Where your co-op partner completes the races for you will you still complete the races or while it only count for the person that completes the races in the time frame?

I wish people couldn't just leave negative feedback without a name and a reason. Who in their right mind would give this bad feedback???

gamesmaster9001you can do them in co-op and can go over the time frame allowed, as long as you don't keep falling down then you get timed out :)

TweekdashI'm on the middle island on the right side of the map, the place with no supply points. There's a race here and it says "DLC required" or something when I stand on it.

Is this race not required for the achievement?

ParadoxReal8@Gamesmaster9001 This is not true. I just completed around the world over the time and in the achievement description, it said incomplete.

HyyrThe car in "Goin' Home" did not spawn for me, so I had to hoof it. Still made it in plenty of time.
