Where to stand in the GTA 3 Silence the Sneak mission

In the GTA 3 Silence the Sneak mission you need to know where to stand exactly, as there’s some tough grenade physics to deal with as you aim for a window while not actually, you know, being able to aim. Without the familiar throwing arc we’re used to seeing in other games it can be hard to judge exactly where to throw from, and you don’t really want to use trial and error when it relates to launching an explosive projectile. That’s where we come in, as we’ve already done the necessary testing to highlight the precise positioning for where to stand in the GTA 3 Silence the Sneak mission so the grenade will fly through the window and you can get on with the task at hand.

This is exactly where to stand for the GTA 3 Silence the Sneak mission, which has crooked cop Ray Machowski sending you on a hit to kill Leon McAffrey. The trick here is that you have to get a grenade through this window, highlighted when you arrive at the map marker:

To get the grenade in the window you’ll need to position yourself so that your right shoulder, and the hand holding the grenade, is just lined up with the window you’re aiming for, as you can see in that screen up there. You also want to line yourself up roughly with this point on the ramp to be at the right distance:

If you line up your shoulder with the window, and your distance with that image, holding R2 until you throw the grenade should place it perfectly in the window.

You’ll notice in the main image we’ve blocked off the way in and out with a garage truck. That’s because as soon as you land the grenade in the right place, Leon McAffrey will try to escape by car while some goons attack you. If you block off the only way out he’ll ram whatever you’ve parked in the way, giving you a chance to pelt him with grenades before he gets away. You can also block the garage but then you’re back to trying to line up tricky grenade shots, so the exit is easier.
