  1. Drive a car or ride a motorbike, and get inside Pay 'n' Spray.
  2. While inside Pay 'n' Spray, exit the car or get out of the motorbike.
  3. Make a wanted level by shooting at pedestrians, cars, or motorbikes. The recommended weapons are Minigun, Rocket Launcher, and Heat-Seeking Rocket Launcher.
  4. When Carl Johnson gets 3 wanted stars, there will be police helicopters or news choppers. Shoot and destroy them. Each chopper destroyed will add +30 points to the Criminal Rating.
  5. If C.J. runs out of body armor and HP, quickly get inside the car or motorbike that C.J. had parked before inside the Pay 'n' Spray. This method will easily evade the wanted stars.
