GTA SA is considered by most to be one of the greatest open world action videogame. The game has one of the best storyline and diverse missions, which, although fun, are quite difficult. There are mostly missions in which you can cheat your way around, but some are just downright annoying, even with the cheats.
5. Robbing Uncle Sam:
The mission Robbing Uncle Sam is one of the most obnoxiously frustrating mission in GTA San Andreas. All because the AI characters’ contribution to the missions is next to nothing. This mission starts with you going over to the docks with Ryder and shooting up the military soldiers, and then proceeding to the warehouse and loading crates into your van.
What makes this mission frustrating is that while you are doing your job loading up crates, your partner on the other hand, who’s supposed to be covering your back, is just a sitting duck. Inevitably, you have to do this 2 man job all by yourself, taking turns between loading crates and shooting the soldiers.
4. Learning To Fly:
In this mission you, what its name suggests, learn to fly a plane. But it doesn’t end there, you’d wish it did. If you are new to the unreliable flying mechanics of this game, you’ll have a hard time completing this mission.
This mission will have you do insanely frustrating stunts and pass through hoops that you will most likely end up crashing the plane.
Theses kinds of missions, just like the helicopter mission in GTA Vice City, are frustrating because the flying mechanics of the games are usually beyond our comprehension. Another reason to be frustrated is because this is not a side mission and the story can not proceed without it. Without all the drama, chaos and killing it manages to be unreasonably infuriating.
3. OG Loc
Your old mate just got out of prison, and guess what he decides to do just after that. Commit murder. Yeah, that’s right. And you are supposed to help him do exactly that.
OG Loc is about chasing and killing a target, which should be easy and fun, right? Well, on the contrary. There comes a point in the chase where Jeffrey, the target, decides to get on a motorbike and starts riding up and down around the narrow streets and the oncoming vehicles literally pop up out of nowhere.
Additionally, your passenger and the target exchange gunfire which could result in your vehicle being exploded. And unsurprisingly, your old mate’s aim is rusty, so all you can do is depend upon your riding skills if you want to complete this mission.
2. Wrong side of the tracks
It is one of the most important missions in San Andreas, and rightfully so. Once again a mission where you have to rely on an AI character and their uncanny ability to provide assistance.
In this mission you and Big Poppa chase down the train in order to take down the Vagos gang members. This is where Big Poppa empties hundreds of mags barely landing any shots, and you stay as close to the train as possible riding a motorbike and giving your best while your at it.
What’s frustrating about this mission is that there’s not much you can do to complete this mission except hope that your friend manages to land his shots.
1. End of the Line
Given that it is the last main mission of the game, it is arguably one of the most difficult missions of the game as well. It’s most definitely not one you’ll ace on your first try.
This multi-level mission will have you drive tanks, storm into buildings, and kill ample amount of thugs, police and other enemies, while also having a time limit to rescue your friend Big Smoke.
The mission goes on for a long duration, and takes several tries even, if you are not prepared to take on enemies at every corner and hidden in high places. And you can’t just take your time killing because of the time-limit.
The last mission, end of the line as it is aptly called, may be frustrating but the moments after the end of it are worth all the frustration.
