Saving Joe - The Construction Site Battle
Go around the corner and try to take out at least one of the three guards below. Move back and forth on the stairs to clear them out. Move down the steps with Joe and quickly shoot the few fleeing men. Move across the floor and use cover to take out a few men behind the equipment.
The next step is the series of drywall rooms. Note that the drywall isn’t bulletproof, so cover isn’t worth that much. Try to shoot quickly and don’t be afraid to shoot through the walls. Check the left side as you go for one man that will try to slip in behind you, but otherwise keep clearing the path to there’s no trick to this. Just shoot well and shoot fast while trying to stay in cover. You should make it to the steps.
Go down the steps and keep your weapon aimed. You need to aim toward the landing and be ready to fire quickly. This should basically be your rearming stop though. You should end up with a shotgun, a rifle and a few other nice guns by the time you reach the bottom.
They’ll set the main path to the right on fire, so you’ll need to jump over the table with Joe and take cover in the middle of the construction area. Stay in cover and use your shotgun to pick them off as best as you can. Once again, there’s no real trick. You just have to survive and work your way to the next set of stairs. Follow them down to the lobby and try to pick up a tommy gun along the way.
Move over to a stone pillar and take cover. Once again, there’s no trick to this one. There are a lot of guys with machine guns and they’re very accurate. Just watch the left side at first and wait for men to pop out from cover. When they do, lean out and give them a quick burst. Rinse and repeat until the first three are dead. Now it’s time to clean up any survivors on the right that Joe didn’t get. Make sure that you watch the stairs too, since one or two might try to run up and flank you. Joe will usually take care of them, but you can’t be sure of it.
Once the floor is pretty clear, move down the stairs, but keep your gun aimed as you round the corner. There should be another two men at the foot of the stairs underneath your balcony. Gun them down fast and take cover by a pillar. There should be another straggler or two left on the. Just watch for them. If you don’t have an objective to leave the lobby, then one of them is still alive. Go up the other staircase and flush out whoever’s still alive over there.
Once everyone is dead, you can walk out the main doors to leave the construction site with Joe.
Steal a car and take Joe to El Greco. It’s not timed this time around, so there’s no rush. Just drive through his gate to trigger the cutscene. Joe will give you his share of the money. If you spent any of yours, then you’ll have to crush a few cars or rob a store or two to get it back above $55,000. The scrapyard isn’t far away and there is a clothing store at the bottom of the hill. Just do what you have to do and then drive to Bruno’s. Drop off the money and head home to finish off the chapter.
