Hot air balloon

Mile High Club
Created by XCVii007r1.

Find a billboard that features the face of the dictator, Baby Panay. Use the grappling hook to position Rico directly over his face then press [Action]. Rico will draw glasses and a mustache over the face.
Safe freefall landings without parachutes
You do not need to use a parachute while free falling. Grapple the ground when you are close to safely land, regardless of the distance that you fell.
Apocalypse Now reference
When flying a helicopter with weapons, destroy as many military objects (SAMs, radar, vehicles, infantry, etc) as possible. After a short time Rico will hum the song "The Ride Of The Valkyries", which was played during the famous air raid scene in Apocalypse Now.
When flying too far over the northwestern island, lightning will hit your plane, destroying it. Stunt Jump out of it or you might die from hitting the wings or other parts of the plane. While slowly going down you will find the crashed airliner Oceanic 815 and the word "search" written on the beach (at coordinates X1275, Y3663). Run into the jungle to find the hatch (at coordinates X1769, Y4351), as well as hear the sounds of the "black smoke" monster. You can actually find an NPC with smoke coming out of him near coordinates X2276, Y1685.
The Winstons (band) reference
One type of boat in the game is named "Winstons Amen 69". This name is a reference to a famous drum beat known as the "Amen Break" performed by the funk and soul band "The Winstons" on their 1969 album "Color Him Father".
Easy "Hang 'em High!" achievement or trophy
- Get under the highway in Panau City and hook the soldiers. You simply need to aim directly up at them. When done in the correct position, a steady stream of soldiers will enter the targeted location.
- Get one or two enemies in front of you with a building behind them. Hook them to the side of the building. It is easy and fast to aim. Most of the time you can kill him before the line snaps. This also works on containers and other smaller objects.
Easy "Invincible Warrior" achievement or trophy
Start a new game under the easiest difficulty setting. It is possible to get all fifty kills during the first mission. If not, get the remainder during the "Casino" level. You can then restart the game under the highest difficulty setting to earn the achievements and trophies that require that setting.
Easy "Trying Anything Once" achievement or trophy
DLC vehicles also qualify towards the total, but were not part of the 104 vehicle total. This allows you to purchase vehicles from the Black Market to increase your total instead of finding all of the original 104 vehicles. Note: Some vehicles such as the Vanderbildt LeisureLiner appear very rarely. The Bering I-86DP will no longer appear after a base has been completed. However you can force the Bering I-86DP to reappear by using the following steps. Go to Kem Udara Wau Pantas Airport on the large island found between East Tanah Raya and the Selatan Archipelago. Start the race challenge by entering red Stinger Dunebug found on the north end of the island. Race through the checkpoints as fast as possible until you reach the runway after jumping the ramp after the third checkpoint. A G9 Eclipse fighter jet should pass in front of you. Get out of the car and hijack the plane by grappling it. Fly to the middle of the base, climbing as you travel. You should be very high above it by the time you reach its location. Eject from the plane and glide towards the east end of the smaller runway. When the message "Kem Udara Wau Pantas 100% complete" appears under the minimap, the Bering I-86DP should spawn there.
Easy "Wrecking Ball" achievement or trophy
- Go to the Paya Luas Military Airport at coordinates X:28412 Y:5704. Enter the area without getting any heat, which is easier by using the fast travel system. Get a large towing truck found near one of the hangars. Attach the tether to one of the large military planes and pull it out of the hanger. Get some heat. When enemies run towards you, drive at them at a slow pace and let the plane hit them. (Video)
- Reach the docks through the first Roaches stronghold. A helicopter spawns at the end, where you must defend the technician during the mission. Note: Do not kill the colonels in the city of Panau. You can now use that chopper without stealing it. Fly it to one of the rooftops with a colonel on one of the islands of the City of Panau. Land on the ground a short distance away. Tow a car to the chopper and make sure the line is very long by parking the car some distance away from the chopper before tethering it. Fly above the Colonel with the chopper and make sure the car is not swinging too badly. Lower the car onto the colonel and his entourage and swing back and forth. The colonel should live, while his friends will die. If the colonel survives, his men will respawn. Repeat the process as many times as needed.
