Gang Hideouts require you to sneak into a restricted zone and knock out the target. While you can sneak in with a Spec Ops weapons you’ll need to be careful when shooting enemies because if you kill the target you will fail the mission. Make sure to profile each enemy before you point your gun at them. If you are detected the target will sometimes escape on foot or in a car, making the mission more difficult than it needs to be.
