This is an easy way to unlock the "Super Hammer" cheat, which requires 100 kills with the sledgehammer. Go to dust near the chemical depot that is near the Badlands and take out a couple guards. Then, go back out of the depot and wait for cars to come by and take them from the civilians and the guerrillas. Form a wall using these cars with only two openings just large enough for people to fit through. Wait for the EDF to come in through the holes, then take out the sledgehammer and start bashing in heads. If they start trying to bash the car wall, blow up their cars. You can use the sledgehammer, but it will take awhile. Try using the explosives since the kills do not have to be in a row. Keep doing this until you have killed enough EDF. Note: Do not go into the chemical depot.
Go to the oasis safehouse and turn around to find two non-EDF large explosive tanks. Shoot them from a safe distance and pick up the salvage. Use Guerrilla Express to travel to the oasis base and the tanks will be there again. Repeat for more salvage.
Buy the satellite locator upgrade with recovered salvage at any safehouse, then get a vehicle and start driving around. When you get within range of a radio tag, a small pulsing green dot will appear on your map. Follow the map as the green dot indicates the location of a missing tag. Some of the tags are in difficult locations to reach. Using a dune-buggy type vehicle is recommended.
