GTA 4: The Lost and Damned Guide
A marker pointing to Stubbs’ location will appear on your radar once you’ve completed “Buyer’s Market” in Elizabeta’s mission line. Follow the marker to Stubbs’ home in Middle Park, Algonquin and hit the yellow marker there to get started.
Mission 1: Politics
Tom Stubbs’ uncle is set to arrive at the Francis International Airport by helicopter in a short while. It’s your job to eliminate him so Stubbs can reap his fortunes. There are a couple of ways you can go about completing this task.
The easiest and quickest way to eliminate the target is to blast his helicopter just as it lands. First, make your way to the gate by following the marked route on your radar. Don’t get to close to the gate, otherwise the guards will open fire. Just wait on the path to the gate until the target’s helicopter can be seen descending toward the helipad. At this point, drive to up to just a few paces short of the gate, dismount, switch to the RPG you’ve been provided with, and enter Free Aim. Just when the helicopter makes contact with the helipad, send a rocket towards it. If done correctly, the helicopter should be destroyed, and the target eliminated.
It should be noted that the guards will start firing at you, but the case is either a) they have horrible aim, or b) they are not all that interested in stopping you. Most of their shots will miss, and the rate at which they fire is pitiful. You’ll likely take minimal damage before you’re back on your bike on racing away from the scene.
If the target manages to make it safely out of the helicopter and joins the convoy, you’ll have to trail after his car instead. This route is decidedly more difficult, since he’s being escorted by a couple of cars full of armed guards who open fire if you get too close. You may be able to use the RPG to take out the convoy, however you won’t be able to use the RPG Launcher while riding.
Despite how you go about it, once the target is eliminated, all you must do then is escape the police to complete the mission.
Mission 2: Off Route
Your job is to secure a bus full of prisoners and lead them to freedom. The prison transport bus is over in Leftwood, Alderney. When you reach the place, just vault over the barrier, head down the decline, and make a beeline for the prison bus. Gun down any officers standing in your path, and approach the driver’s side door. When you get close enough to the bus, a cutscene will begin, and you will have secured your spot in the driver’s seat.
Once you’re in the driver’s seat, you first must shake a three-star wanted level. Outrunning the police here can be difficult, since the bus moves rather slowly, and it can’t make sharp turns. On the upside, the bus is incredibly sturdy, and can barrel over smaller vehicles, including, most importantly, police cruisers. It might help to set a waypoint on your map somewhere far so you’ll have something to follow on your radar.
When you’ve successfully evaded the police, drive the prison transport bus to the marker by the docks at the south end of Acter Industrial Park to complete the mission.
