Gunman is a mission in Driver: Parallel Lines. It is the third mission in the game.

PlotEdit

Slink wants TK to meet him at a power station at Long Island, where he will train TK to use basic weapons. The player must complete a series of objectives that teach the player multiple techniques, these contain:

Lock On - shooting at targets using the 'lock-on' feature, the player must shoot the designated barrels to unlock the next task.

Strafing - shooting parts of a car whilst moving, the player must shoot 3 times on each side of the car whilst moving, if the player does this correct, Slink will shout 'Bam!', if he doesn't, the player stopped moving. If the car is shot too much, the car will explode, failing the mission.

Marksmanship - the player must now shoot out the tires of a car, if shot too much, the car will explode, failing the mission

Driving and Shooting - shooting a target car whilst giving chase to it using another car. If the car is rammed by the player, the damage made will not be counted, only shots from the weapon are counted. The player must destroy the ride.

Immediately after the mission, TK is informed by Ray that he needs money - $1,500. The objectives for the next mission appear, but the mission has no time limit, and the player can safely leave the game after the instructions appear on-screen without losing progress.

ObjectivesEdit

[Practise] Lock-On. [Back to top]
  • The player is informed about Lock-On, how it works, and how to do it. The player must right click (PC)/press L1 (PS2)/push the left trigger (Xbox) to target the barrel, it will be circled by a red targeting marker, the player then need to left click (PC)/press R1 (PS2)/push the right trigger (Xbox) to shoot the barrel off the wooden plank. 5 barrels must be shot off the plank, in a random order. The player must be careful not to lock-on to any of the other barrels when one specific barrel is highlighted and required to be shot (which will be indicated by a yellow arrow above the barrel).
*NOTE: Slink's instructions are now audible and no on-screen objectives appear
[Practise] Strafing. [Back to top]
  • The player is informed about Lock-On, how it works, and how to do it. The player must lock-on to the car, circle it, and shoot each side (front, back and sides) 3 times to qualify. Slink will shout "Bam!" once each side has successfully shot 3 times. Shooting too many times and failing to lock-on will fail the mission.
*NOTE: Slink's instructions are now audible and no on-screen objectives appear
[Practise] Marksmanship. [Back to top]
  • The player is informed about Marksmanship, how it works, and how to do it. The player must aim precisely at the station wagon's tires and shoot them out. The player must wield their weapon, and click the middle mouse button (PC)/press R2 (PS2)/press the Black button (Xbox) to zoom into the target. Missing too many times, or wrecking the car before shooting the tires will fail the mission.
*NOTE: Slink's instructions are now audible and no on-screen objectives appear
Waste the hot car. [Back to top]
  • Once both tires of the vehicle's left side have been shot under Slink's instructions, Slink tells TK to waste the car. The player can do this by shooting the car's bodywork several times, resulting in it exploding.
[Practise] Driving and Shooting. [Back to top]
  • The player is informed about Driving and Shooting, how it works, and how to do it. The player is instructed how to perform driving and shooting in the next instructions.

Tail the car and shoot it until it stops. [Back to top]

The player must right click (PC)/press L1 (PS2)/press the X button (Xbox) to pull out a gun and target the car, and then left click (PC)/press R1 (PS2)/press the A button (Xbox) to shoot the car.
Use your gun, but don't ram him. [Back to top]

Slink OK, Kid, this is Slink - you know what this is about.
Come meet me at the power station on Long Island.
I gotta put you through your paces with the steel, be sure you can handle yourself if you ever get in a...situation, ya know what I'm saying?
Practising lock-on
In the power station, the camera pans down to five barrels on top of scaffolding boards. Slink instructs TK what to do.
Slink Glad you could make it, kid.
OK, first thing, let's check you got the basics down now you got yourself cornered by some mean looking barrels.
Squeeze the trigger, don't get snatching at it.
TK fires the first round at the barrel.
Slink That's it kid - and the rest.
TK fire more rounds.
Slink Oh yeah!
Let's go for something a little bigger.
Practising strafing
The camera pans around a scrap car. Slink instructs TK what to do.
Slink I wanna see hornets slamming into the car front, back and sides.
TK shoots around the car.
Slink Bam!
Bam!
Bam!
Bam!
Practising marksmanship
The camera dollies towards a scrap station wagon. Slink instructs TK what to do.
Slink OK, so far so good. Let's see if you got any accuracy with that thing.
Can you take out that car's tires from where we are?
TK shoots the fire tire.
Slink Nice! Now do the other tire!
TK shoots the other tire
Slink Ok - the car's hot anyhow, so waste it then we'll go for a drive.
TK destroys the car.
Slink Bam!
I've got one more job for you!
Driving and shooting
Outside the power station, TK is sat in a car with Slink explaining the job outside the car. There is another car just ahead of TK.
Slink Ok. See this guy in the car up ahead?
He's been and got his sorry ass the wrong side of Slink, and you're gonna convince him that's a bad place to be.
I wanna see what you learnt so far today.
Waste his punk-ass wheels without ramming him - just use the heater.
TK tails the car and destroys it.
Slink (Over radio) Bam!
Better keep your ears open - I'm gonna be calling your ass when some work comes in.
Take it easy, kid. Oh, and...you can hold onto the shooter, Ray's the man to see if you need some more bullets for that thing.
