Snail Trail is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas given to protagonist Carl Johnson by the C.R.A.S.H. team from Carl's garage in the Doherty district of San Fierro, San Andreas.

MissionEdit

Carl goes inside the garage, and is greeted by Jethro. He says that some cops are looking for him in the office. Carl realizes that it is Tenpenny and Pulaski. He is welcomed by them, and they ask him how things are going, and how his brother is doing. Later on, they order Carl to kill a young journalist, who is apparently onto the C.R.A.S.H. officers. Pulaski also tells Carl to kill the reporter who is supposedly going to meet the young journalist at the end of Yacht Harbor in Santa Maria Beach, Los Santos.

Carl heads for and obtains a sniper rifle hidden by Tenpenny at the construction site beside the garage. After so, he heads to Cranberry Station, just across the street from the garage, where the reporter is waiting for a train to board. A little later, the journalist boards the train, and Carl pursues it. The train stops at Market Station in Market, and the reporter alights. He then hails and boards a taxi and heads for the end of Yacht Harbor in Santa Maria Beach. Carl discreetly follows him. Once the reporter arrives at his destination, he meets the journalist, and starts talking. However, from a distance, Carl assassinates both the journalist and reporter.

Mission objectivesEdit

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Tenpenny has hidden a sniper rifle in the construction site nearby. Go get it.
  • The reporter is at Cranberry Station. Follow him to the meeting place with the Target, then kill them both
  • The reporter has boarded the train and is heading for Market Station in Los Santos. Follow that train
  • The reporter has left the train. Pick up his trail and follow him to the Target
  • The reporter has climbed into a cab. Follow him to the Target
  • The reporter is ready to meet the Target. You have a sniper rifle. Assassinate them both

TipsEdit

  • It is possible for the player to board the reporter's train, eliminating the need to follow it. To do so, have a vehicle ready as Carl picks up the Sniper Rifle and immediately rush to the station, as the train arrives and departs very quickly.

RewardEdit

Like all missions given by Tenpenny, there is no reward, though the mission Ice Cold Killa is unlocked.

GlitchesEdit

  • On the PS2 version of the game, a second train (the one carrying the reporter) may occasionally appear some distance ahead of the train Carl is following. Therefore, the player should pay attention to their radar to check whether they are following the correct train.
  • The Floating Train glitch can appear in this mission. A few minutes after the train leaves carrying the reporter, another train will arrive at the station but will not stop and instead take off from the rails and begin travelling towards Los Santos.

TriviaEdit

  • This is one of a handful of missions where there is no scripted dialogue during gameplay.
