Hello!> Hello and welcome to my FAQ/Walkthrough for Grand Theft Auto IV. Having used gamefaqs for many a gaming problem over the years I finally decided to contribute an FAQ myself. The type of FAQ I like best is the ones which are accessible and can be skipped through to a particular part or mission. Amongst other things, my FAQ will contain just that. Both of which are essential for an easy life in GTA: IV. I will also not be including any major spoilers. When it comes to choosing a character's fate (as does happen occcasionally) I will offer hints about which to choose but I will not include spoilers as to what happens if you choose one over the other. I believe that everyone should experience everything in GTA IV unspoiled and it should be an entirely unique experience for each player. I will however be happy to answer questions regarding which to choose over email as that is not going to be read in the FAQ. <ii.

Niko Bellic> Niko Bellic is the latest playable character in the Grand Theft Auto series and, with the possible exception of Tommy Vercetti (who, in my opinion is unbeatable) is the most promising character yet. He is an eastern-european (I ain't getting into the whole russian or not debate) imigrant who was drawn to Liberty City largely because of his cousin Roman. According to Roman, life in Liberty City was one long big dream with mansions, girls and a thriving business empire. This, combined with some other issues (which we later find out about) persuaded Niko to move to Liberty City in pursuit of a new life. Upon arrival however, Niko discovered things were not all as Roman said and a whole new set of problems unfold. Welcome to Grand Theft Auto IV. <ii. Meelee Combat> Niko is highly skilled in hand to hand combat and is able to execute a number of moves in order to escape a tricky situation. I thought a brief tutorial on these would be useful as they do come in handy when firearms are not an option. <Locking onto a Target> Pressing L2 with cause a circle to appear around your target. The inside of this circle is red which is your target's health. The more damage they take, the smaller this red circle will become until it becomes empty and they fall. When a gun is equipped this is very handy as it means you lock on to your target and thus the risk of missing them is reduced. When in hand to hand combat though it is even more useful as, by using the L3 stick you can switch to different parts of your target's body. Depending on which bit of them you hit, you can do varying amounts of damage. For instance, a good right hook to their head will do a lot of damage and can knock them out. Whereas a blow to their chest area will do some damage but not quite as much. <Punching> Pressing square will cause Niko to deal an ordinary blow to his opponent whilst locked on. This, depending on where you hit, will do varying damage. Pressing circle however deals a more powerful punch to your opponent and is very useful in a combat situation for flooring an opponent quickly. Also, by pressing them as a combination (i.e. circle, square or square, circle) makes Niko do a small routine of punches which will cause even more damage. <Kicking> Pushing triangle will cause Niko to kick his opponent. One kick on its own will do a little damage but, combine it with a punch and it will often knock them down, thus allowing you to deal more damage. Also, if you are up against a particularly nasty opponent who is kicking the hell out of you, a simply kick will knock him backwards which will allow you to give him a few right hooks and kick his ass instead. <Blocking> Pushing and holding X will allow Niko to block an opponents attack. This is very useful as it means you can keep blocking your opponent's attacks until he stops at which point you can go in with a few right and left hooks of your own. Also, if an opponent has a knife/pistol, pressing x to block folowed swiftly by circle will cause Niko to disarm the opponent and turn the tables. Very handy. <iii. Guns! Guns! Guns!> Naturally, hand to hand combat isn't the only means of self defence at Niko's disposal. Sometimes in Liberty City there will be times when civilised discussion goes to hell and a more direct approach is necessary. For just such an occasion Rockstar has provided a whole array of weapons. These cam be bought from any gun retailer in Liberty and also, at a certain point, from a local jamaican arms dealer. Also they can be found at certain locations throughout the city. Each weapon has been given a power rating by me. 1 being all right for one or two people and ten being let's start a world war! <Baseball Bat> 2 Not a bad little weapon for taking on three or four unarmed opponents. One powerful swing can knock three or four people to the floor at once allowing a pounding to ensue. If they are armed however, even if it's just a pistol, a more reliable source of protection is needed. <Pistol> 4 Carrying an illegal 17 rounds of ammo this is a gun you can trust. Using L2 you can target specific people and then, using L3 move the target to a different part of their body. One shot to the head will kill instantly. Very useful for taking out similarly armed enemies. <Micro SMG> 4 Like the pistol, this is very useful when facing similarly armed enemies. By holding L2 you can target and then fire by pressing R2. Holding R2 will increase the blast radius and thus hit more enemies. However, this does mean that the gun becomes less accurate so often it is best to just focus on one foe to conserve ammo. <SMG> 4 The micro-SMG's bigger brother and your best friend in a drive-by situation. More powerful than the Micro SMG and carrying more ammo, the SMG can be very useful during drive bys as it can deal alot of damage to a vehicle in a short space of time. Additionally, using the aiming feature you can aim at any part of the car you like. Consider aiming at the tires in order to slow down your opponent. Assault Rifle 5 When taking out large amounts of cops or alot of enemies at once, this is the only gun you'll need. Holding down L2 to focus on a target, this baby can take down an enemy before they've even reached for their guns. Very nice. Carbine Rifle 5 A similar model of fire-arm to the Assault Rifle. This is better when used at a distance as its bullets have a longer firing range. Pump Shotgun 4 If you're low on ammo and need to take out foes quickly at close range, this weapon is ideal. Carrying a maximum of 8 shells (after which Niko will automatically reload) this can blow an enemy off his feet very quickly. Also, fire this into a group of enemies and watch all of them hit the deck! Fun! The only thing that lets this one down is the lack of zoom function. Combat Shotgun 5 Exactly the same as the pump shotgun expect you get 10 shells instead of 8. Also has a little more power. Sniper Rifle 5 This can only be used at a distance and cannot be used when walking or running. Press L2 to enter scope mode and scan your terrain. Use L3 to zoom in or out and push L3 left or right to aim the crosshair and then R2 to fire. Headshots will kill in 1 and a shot on any other body section will kill in 2. Combat Sniper 5 If you can get it, preferable to the Sniper Rifle. It can fire more bullets without having to reload and will usually kill in one shot regardless of where you hit your opponent. RPG 8 Woah baby! This thing is the business! Firing rockets around the place is the quickest way to take out multiple targets in one go and the only way to take out the NOOSE guys when you get a six star wanted level. You can even bounce them off buildings and whatnot to increase their power. Woohoo! Molotov 7 Burn bay burn disco inferno! Throw one of these into a crowd and watch them run! When launched they will explode upon impact and set fire to whatever they hit as well as the surrounding area and anyone in it. Great for taking out groups of people at once. Holding R2 for a bit and then releasing will make Niko throw it further. This is always reccomended as it can back fire and burn you if you're not careful. Grenade 7 Aim with L2, throw with R2 and watch the targets limbs go flying. This is extremely effective for taking out large groups of enemies in one go. As with molotovs, the longer yu hold R2, the further Niko will throw it and decrease the risk of it backfiring and hitting you instead. ============================================================================= Liberty City - Useful Information ============================================================================= <i. Getting Around> Liberty City provides gamers with a virtual environment that emulates all the sights and sounds of a real life city and with that comes a variety of ways to get from A to B. <Cars> As with previous GTAs cars are a good way of getting around. Simply press triangle to jack a car and then L2 to drive off. Be warned though stealing a car isn't as simple as it used to be. If a car is stationary you need to hotwire it before you can use it. Niko does this automatically but pushing L2 and R2 simultaneously can speed this up. Also, in order to get into the car, Niko will smash the window which will attract police attention when out on the main roads. A much better method of transportation is ...... <Taxis> The best addition to GTA IV is the taxi. Simply stand on the sidewalk and when one comes passt press L1 and Niko will whistle and hail the taxi. Now simply press and old triangle to enter the taxi as a passenger and select your destination. You must hold triangle however as if you don't Niko will jack the car which will attract attention from the law. You can also jack a passenegr from a taxi and use it yourself without getting a wanted level. By far the best method of getting around town. <Boats> At the start of the game, you probably won't use boats much as only a certain part of the city is open to you. Later on however, boats are a fantastic way to get from one borough to the next. Simply press triangle to enter one and then L2 to set off. Like cars, they require hotwiring before use. <Trains> Like taxis, trains provide an excellent and quick way to get around Liberty City. Simply go to one of the many train stations and wait for a train to arrive. When it does, press triangle to board it and travel to your destination. <Helicopters> These don't come into play right away but once they do they are a very quick method of getting around. To enter one simply press triangle and Niko will hotwire the helicopter (as with cars and boats this process can be sped up by pressing L2 and R2 simultaneously). Then hold L2 to ascend and R2 to slow down and descend slightly. L3, like any other vehicle, is used for steering. <ii. Liberty's Finest - The Law> Liberty City comes complete with its own system of law enforcement which ranges from your average cop roaming the streets with his baton and pistol to whole squads of NOOSE helicopters that will take you down. The following is a low down of what police attention comes from getting a certain number of stars: * and ** A couple of police cruisers will pursue you. Each cruiser will have around two to three cops in it who each have a baton and pistol. At one star, they will only try and arrest you but at two stars they will pursue and kill you. *** and **** Roadblocks will appear and more cruisers as the cops try and corner you. Helicopters now come into play complete with a shooter who is a crack shot from the air and a spotlight that tracks you at night. Four stars also brings the Annihilator which is a gun ship designed to take you down pretty damn quickly ***** and ****** Now things really turn nasty! The FBI now join in and bar all bridges off the island in order to fence you in. At six stars NOOSE gets involved. Those who have played GTA before will know these have replaced the army. They have their own helicopters and enforcers which are pretty nasty. Also their AKS do some serious damage. Losing the cops is a little different than before. Previously, a visit to a pay n' spray was all that was needed. However, though Pay N' Sprays are still available, they will only work if the cops don't see you enter it. If they do then nothing will happen. Naturally, it becomes harder to avoid them seeing you the more stars you have. When you get a wanted level a red circle appears on your radar. In order to reduce your wanted level, you must successfully escape this red circle without the cops seeing you doing it. At one star it is a piece of cake but it gradually gets harder as you progress and at six stars it is damn near impossible. To make things easier dots also appear on your radar. Blue dots are cops who are pursuing on foot and red dots are the vehicles that are chasing you. One of the best ways to escape is to go off road. Through parks, down alleyways are good routes to take where the cops won't necessarily know where you are. Main roads are a bad idea. <iii. Staying Alive> Your health bar has also changed. In the left corner of the screen is a large circle. The interior is your radar but around the edge is your health and armour. The left side is red which is your health and the right side, if you have armour, will be blue and this is your armour. The more damage you take, the more these two will decrease until they reach nothing and you are wasted and admitted to hospital. As you progress through the game you will find health packs dotted around the place. These are green packs with a cross on them and can be walked into to use them. Also, armour can be found either dotted around the city (it is a grey object with a red circle around it) or bought from gun retailers. Also, at many street corners are venders who sell hot dogs and other fast foods which can also replenish your health. Also, there are restaurants such as Cluckin' Bells which sell food. Also, when you meet a prostitute they will regenerate your health in their own special way (ahem). ============================================================================= The Walkthrough Begins ============================================================================= ----------------------- Roman Bellic ----------------------- <The Cousin's Bellic> [TCB] Tasks to do: Drive Roman back to his apartment Upon arrival in Liberty City, Niko is met by Roman, his cousin who it would seem, has exxagerated slightly about his wealth and prosperity. He is a little too "happy" to drive back home so Niko has to take the wheel. Enter Roman's car by pressing triangle and hold down L2 to accelerate. You will notice the yellow line on your radar. This is your GPS navigation device which almost every car has in GTA 4. This is extremely if you're going somewhere new so use it well. Follow the yellow GPS line to Roman's apartment and park up in the yellow "Reserved" space out the front. This space is your "garage". If you park any vehicle in this space it will stay there for future use. Now enter the apartment to trigger the cutscene. Mission Complete! After the cutscene, your are free to explore Liberty City and in doing so, you will see this game was well worth the wait. For now though, head over to the bed and follow the on screen prompts to save your game. Note that this isn't necessary as the game has an auto-save feature but it's a useful thing to learn. Now, head through the door and downstairs onto the street. <It's Your Call> [IYC] The "R" on your radar is where Roman's taxi depot is and it is presently your only source for missions so head on over there to trigger this mission. Tasks to do: Drive Roman to the store Hang around outside and warn him when the loan sharks arrive Lose the loan sharks and get Roman safely back to the taxi depot Grab the highlighted and follow your yellow GPS tracker to the Hardware Store just off Shottler Avenue. It seems that Roman is playing with some money he owes to some Albanian Loan Sharks and you need to be on the look out in case they arrive. Park up in the yellow marker and Roman will enter the store and begin playing. Remain in the designated spot and use R3 to look around the surrounding area. Pretty soon a beige car will pull up and two guys get out. It's them! Push up on the d-pad and select CONTACTS. Highlight Roman and push X to call him and warn him of the Albanian's presence. Roman will come out of the store and get in. Quickly, accelerate off as the loan sharks will fire at you. Ignore this and cocnentrate on getting back to the taxi depot. Once there, park up in the yellow marker. Mission Complete! <Three's a Crowd> [TAC] Tasks to do: Go meet Mallorie and Michelle at the station Drive them both back to Michelle's apartment Visit the clothes shop in Mohawk and buy some new threads As a favour, Roman asks Niko to go pick up Mallorie and Michelle from the subway station and take them home. Hop into the taxi and drive on over to the subway station. Press L3 to sound the horn and attract the girl's attention. Once both are in the car, follow the yellow GPS route to Michelle's apartment and listen to the two girls talking about you and Mallorie trying to set you up with Michelle. Once you've dropped them both off Mallorie suggests you get some new threads. A new clothes icon will appear on your radar so follow the GPS route to it. Enter the shop and buy some new threads. It doesn't really matter what you buy but check out Michelle's section in the Girlfriend's section to see what she likes. Once you're done, exit the shop. Mission Complete! After buying some new clothes call Michelle on your cell phone and arrange a date with her. Grab a car and head on over to her place. When you get close to it, Roman will call and asks you to come and help him out of a bit of trouble he's in. You can either date Michelle now or go save Roman. If you choose Roman the skip ahead to "Bleed Out" and come back here. If you choose Michelle then proceed to the following mission. ------------------- Michelle ------------------- <First Date> [FD] Tasks to do: Drive Michelle to the Carnival Do some bowling at Memory Lanes Bowling Alley Drive Michelle back to her apartment Is it me or does Niko not have a clue what he's doing around women? Anyways, get into Michelle's car and enjoy the conversation as you drive to the carnival. When you get there, you discover it is closed so Michelle suggests a spot of bowling. Head on over to the bowling alley and press L1 to talk to the clerk and begin a game. Head left to the vacant bowling lane to begin play. The on screen tutorial will tell you how to bowl but basically, move Niko into position with L3 and then pull L3 back and release it to bowl the ball. It doesn't really matter whether you win or lose to be honest but it's still good fun. After the game is over, Michelle will ask you if you would mind taking her home. Being a gentleman, Niko agrees so head back to the car and follow the yellow GPS route home. Mission Complete! NOTE: If you chose to date Michelle when Roman called he will now call again and is a little pissed off that you let him down and ends up in hospital. ----------------------- Roman Bellic ----------------------- <Bleed Out> [BO] If you didn't choose Michelle then simply proceed to the Basketball Courts to trigger this mission. If you dated Michelle first then you will get a text message, after an angry call from Roman, inviting you to try this mission again. Push X to do so and then proceed to the Basketball Courts in the Firefly Projects. Tasks to Do: Rescue Roman Pound the hell out of Bledar and Kalem Chase and dispose of Dardan At the basketball courts, Roman is being menaced by two loan sharks from the "It's Your Call" mission and needs your help. When you get there you will see them giving Roman a pounding. Approach them and one will break off and start on you. Using L2 to target him land a few punches on him and he will go down. Then his mate will turn on you so do the same to him, and this time add a few headbutts in (pressing circle and triangle will do this) to knock him down quickly. Once they're both out cold go over to Roman to check he's all right and you'll see a third dealer making a run for it. Quickly run back to Roman's car and give chase. Be careful on corners as it is quite easy to spin out of control so use your brake (R2) to avoid this. After a little chase through the city he will stop at a set of stairs so get out and follow him up them. At the top he will finally confront you with a knife which can do some surprising damage. Target him and then press X to block and circle to disarm him. Now commence hacking with your new found weapon until he goes down. Then return to Roman and drive him back to the taxi depot. Mission Complete! <Easy Fare> [EF] Tasks to Do: Pick up Jermaine Drive to Jermaine's garage on Masterson Street Evade the Cops Drive over to the pay n' spray on Gibson Street Grab the taxi inside the depot's garage and head on over to Jermaine's house on Rotterdam Hill. He explains that his stash is located in Masterson Street in his lockup. When you get there things all go to pot as the police come squealing into the lot. As Jermaine suggests, lose the heat! As its only a couple of stars it's not too difficult to shake off. Simply take a detour through some back streets and alleys. Avoid the main roads though as the cops will be swarming all over them. You'll know when you're beginning to lose them since the red circle will begin flashing. After you've lost them, Jermaine wants to be taken to Native Engines which is a pay n' spray shop. Head on over there and park up inside it to get a free re-spraying. Mission Complete! <Jamaican Heat> [JH] Tasks to Do: Go pick up Little Jacob Drive to the meeting point and watch over Little Jacob When it all turns nasty, pop some heads Drive Little Jacob back home when you're done This mission will be the first time (story-wise) you use a gun. Follow your GPS tracker to Little Jacob and wait for him to get in. He says he has some business that needs taking care of (God know what he actually says but that's the jist of it) and that he wants you to take him over to Schottler. On the way, he gives you a pistol and asks you to watch his back. Drive into the alleyway and go up the stairs to your vantage point. After a few moments, the dealers will turn up and start talking with Jacob. Using L2, aim at the back of one dealer's head and wait for it all to turn nasty. When it does, take him and his companions down. Once they're all down the scene will cut to the door just behind you where one other gangster bursts through and start firing so quickly cap him and then head down to Little Jacob. Jacob thanks you for helping him and says he wants to go home so hop back into your car and drive the friendly rasta home. Mission Complete! Once you're done with "Jamaican Heat", we are done with Roman's mission for the time being so on over to Comrades Bar (the V on your radar) and we'll take care of Vlad's missions. ----------------------- Vlad ----------------------- It seems that Roman owes Vlad alot of money and, as a way of keeping Vlad sweet and making some quick cash, Niko has agreed to do some work for Vlad. Step into the yellow arrow marker to trigger the first mission for the Russian hardman. <Bull in a China Shop> [BCS] Tasks to Do: Drive over to the china shop "Persuade" the owner to cough up Report the successful deal with Vlad then give him the cash Head on over to the china shop highlighted on your map. I would reccomend a taxi for a swift ride (just stand on the pavement and press L1 to flag one down as it passes) or just jack a car and drive there. Either way, when you get there the chinese man is a little reluctant to pay up and requires a little reminder. In the yard opposite is a few bricks. Go there and grab one then, lob one at his window so that it breaks. When it breaks he will cough up and Niko phones Vlad to tell him. After this, grab a car or taxi and head back to Comrades Bar and stand in the yellow marker to return the protection money to Vlad. Mission Complete! <Hung Out to Dry> [HTD] Tasks to Do: Drive over to the launderette Chase the owner and ram him till he pays up A similar kind of thing to the last mission except this time it's a laundry who won't pay up. Head on over there and go inside. A cutscene ensues where the owner runs off so high tail it after him and grab the car in the lot. Contually press L2 and R2 to hotwire the car quicker and chase the van. Continually ram him and he will eventually stop and surrender the money. Niko will then call Vlad to report a successful transaction. <Clean Getaway> [CG] Tasks to Do: Take the train over to South Bohan Jack the Silver Blista and get it cleaned up Take the car and park it in Vlad's lockup Someone else isn't paying up and Vlad wants you to go take his car as a payment method. But, because he's an ass he refuses to give you a lift and tells you to take the train. Head down the road and up the stairs in the nearby station and stand on the platform waiting for the train. When it arrives press triangle to get on board and travel to your destination. Upon arrival, exit the station and follow your radar over to where the Blista is parked and, ignoring the guy polishing it, jack it and drive off. The guy will offer a small amount of resistance but there's no need to waste him as he doesn't follow you and it just attracts unnecessary legal heat. Niko calls Vlad who refuses to accept the car as it is too dirty so follow the new target on your radar to the car wash and drive inside. Once the car has been cleaned up Vlad tells you to take the car to his lockup. Follow the GPS there and park it inside to complete the mission. Mission Complete! <Ivan the not so terrible> [INT] Tasks to Do: Drive over to Roman's Taxi Depot Chase Ivan to the top of the construction site Choose: Kill or Save? This mission is the first mission where you get to choose what happens. Drive over to Roman's taxi depot and you will see Ivan come haring out of the exit. Follow him. Be warned if you're not used to driving at high speeds this can be a bit tricky bt not overly so. Just tap L2 to break around corners and you will be fine. After a bit, Ivan runs into a construction site so abandon your car and pursue on foot. Climb the many ladders in the construction site by using triangle and X to speed up. After a while of chasing Ivan he has no where else to run and Niko confront him atop the highest roof. You now get a choice to either kill Ivan or save him. This will happen more as the story progresses and some have more consequences than others. In this case the consequences aren't that serious so either save him or throw him off the roof (the latter provides a better cinematic) to complete the mission. Mission Complete! This concludes the missions for Vlad. Remember that friendly rasta we helped out back in "Jamaican Heat"? Well Little Jacob now admires Niko and has some more work for him. He can be found at his place just off Schottler Avenue so head on over there (the LJ icon on your radar) and step into the yellow icon to trigger his first mission. ---------------- Little Jacob ---------------- <Concrete Jungle> [CJ] Tasks to Do: Drive Jacob to the first meeting Waste the thugs who try to escape on foot Drive on over to the second meeting Waste the gang members inside the house Lose your wanted level (if you have one) Drive Little Jacob back home It seems Little Jacob has some business to attend to in town and he wants Niko to help him out as he has proven he can handle himself when things get rough. His first meeting is in an alleyway on Saratoga Avenue so drive over there and park in the marker. A cut scene will ensue during which the deal goes bad and the thugs attempt to escape on foot.You now need to waste them. The quickest way is to simple accelerate and mow them down, or you can blast them with your pistol. Squashing them is a better method because gun fire is liable to attract some legal attention. Either way, once they're dead, return to Little Jacob who has another errand to run in Meadows Park. Drive on over there and Jacob ushers you towards the front door as the thugs are inside. Press R1 to take cover behind the door and shoot the door open. You'll immediatley see one thug on the stairs so shoot him and Jacob will then indicate a second thug just inside the kitchen to the left which he can't get a shot at. Press L3 and crawl along the house to the window of the kitchen. The thug should now be in plain view so blow him away and then quickly follow Little Jacob inside the house. There are now a couple more thugs to be disposed of. Using R1, take cover behind the sofa and blast the two in front of you. Note that the pillars behind which one will hide can be brought down with gun fire if they won't come out so feel free to try this technique if necessary. Once both are down, grab the green first aid kit on the table in the kitchen and then exit the house with Little Jacob. All this gun fire may have attracted some police attention. If it has then it won't be more than one or two stars at most so just speed around up some back alleys to lose them. Then drive Little Jacob back to the Homebrew Cafe. Mission Complete! <Shadow> [S] Tasks to Do: Locate the dealer in South Bohan Follow him back to the gang's hideout Wipe them all out A local gang on drug dealers is mustling in on Jacob's business and he wants them removed from circulation. He knows of one dealer who is currently doing business in an alleyway in South Bohan and he wants you to follow him back to the gang's hideout and then take them all out. As Jacob said the dealer in question is doing some business in South Bohan so follow the GPS signal to him. Wait across the road from the alleyway and wait for him to finish dealing. When he does he will walk off so, making sure to stay as far away from him as possible without actually losing him follow him. Keep on following him through the back alleys and be sure to stay a bit behind him. The reason being that a) you don't want to spook him and b) at a certain point Roman will call and if you're too close he will hear the phone go off and start running. If he does see you following him it's not immediatley a mission failure but it does make the end gun fight a little harder as they will know you're coming. Anyway, he will eventually enter an apartment complex so continue following him up the many stairs until he enters the gang;s apartment. Now, equip your gun and push R1 to take cover on the wall. Shoot the door out (the dealer locks it) and immediatley shoot the dealer hiding in the alcove to the right. Now push R1 and the left stick left to swap to the other side of the wall. You will see two more dealers in the back room so cap them and then enter the room. You should now be able to take out the remaining dealers without much hassle, use the walls for cover and be sure to pick up the ammo and guns that they drop once they're down. When they've all been wasted Niko will call Little Jacob to report that he has nothing to worry about as the gang have been disposed of. Mission Complete! After completing this mission, Little Jacob will call you to offer you some more work. This work is the drug delivery side missions so check out the appropriate section for more details if you wish to do them now. Right now though, we need to go attend to Roman who has just re-opened as a contact on your radar. So head to his taxi depot in Broker when you're ready. ----------------------- Roman Bellic ----------------------- <Uncle Vlad> [UV] Tasks to Do: Get some armour and weapons from the local gun shop Kill Vlad Niko arrives at the taxt depot to find his cousin a broken man. Mallorie, it seems, has been seeing alot more of Vlad than is acceptable and Vlad has been taking a few more liberties with Mallorie than Niko is prepared to tolerate. So, ignoring his cousin's repeated requests not to do anything stupid Niko sets off to kill Vlad. Comrades Bar where Vlad is currently hanging out will appear on your radar but ignore that for a moment as having plenty of ammo and full armour is highly reccomended for the mission. Pause the game and look on your map for the nearest gun shop (marked by a gun icon) and highlight it and press X to set a way point. Now follow the new green line on your radar to the gun shop and buy some pistol ammo and armour (some shotgun shell would also help but funds may not allow and is not essential). Now follow the yellow GPS marker to Comrades Bar and enter to trigger a cut scene during which Niko confronts Vlad and his cronies appear to defend him. Vlad is at the bar so keep blowing heads off until you reach him and he runs out the front door. Follow him. Don't waste time killing the others inside the bar. It's Vlad we're after. Grab a car and high tail it after Vlad. Vlad takes quite a random route through the town so be alert and be sure to brake before turning a corner to avoid spinning out of control. After a while Vlad will abandon his car and run off on foot so follow him until he eventually gives up and you can waste the bugger. Simply aim at Vlad and shoot him in the head to get rid of him once and for all. Mission Complete! --------------------------- Faustin/Dimitri --------------------------- After completing "Uncle Vlad", Roman calls you and tells you to come and meet him. Follow the marker and you'll arrive at the Perestroika club. Step into the marker to trigger a lengthy cutscne in which both you and Roman wind up in the basement of Faustin's mansion. It seems that the Russian mob are quite annoyed that Vlad is dead and, in exchange for not killing you they require your services. For most of the missions involving these guys your contact will be Fuastin (indicated by an "F" on your radar). Occasionally however, it will be Dimitri, Faustin's associate, who will be indicated by a "DR" on your radar. <Crime and Punishment> [CP] Tasks to Do: Acquire a Police Car Start pulling vans over until you get the right one Drive the correct van to Faustin's lockup For your first assignment, Faustin wants you to hijack a shipment of TVs that is coming in by van and take them to his lockup. There are three vans and you will need to be in a police car so that you can pull them over. There are several ways to get a police car in GTA 4 but, fortunatley, on this occasion you'll need none of them. Simply proceed down the street and a police cruiser will come down the street and stop outside a house. Wait for the two officers to get out and then grab the police car. Zoom down the street and around the corner to get rid of the one star wanted level you may have acquired. Now three red dots will have appeared on your radar which indicate the three vans that are driving around. Only one has the TVs in them but there is no way of telling which one it is so you're going to have to pull them all over. Head towards one of the red dots and turn on your police sirens once you get near it. Keep following it to pull it over. Now get out and talk to the van driver and he will open the van. The first one more than likely won't be the one you want so get back in the cruiser and head on towards another van and repeat the procedure. Occasionally this second van maybe the one you want but more than likely it won't be so, once the driver has opened the back get back in the police cruiser and proceed to the final van. Pull this one over and the driver will get out and start shooting at you so cap him and then get into the van. Now simply drive the van to Faustin's lockup and park it inside. Mission Complete! <Do you have protection?> [DYP] Tasks to do: Head over to the porn shop Intimidate the owner Shoot Brett in the leg Take Dimitri to the gun store Buy a Micro-SMG Take Dimitri back home It seems that a local porn shop owner has expanded his business and "forgot" to tell Faustin about it so Dimitri wants you to help him get the money he's owed. In the nearby driveway is a sleek red sports car. Grab it and follow the yellow GPS route to the porn shop in Hove Beach. Enter the shop and a cut scene will ensue during which Dimitri tells the owner of his debt. When the action recommences aim your pistol at the owner and he offers you a film deal if you forget the whole thing. It seems a little persuasion is required so switch to Brett (the guy standing to the right) and aim at his leg. Fire at it and the owner quickly comes around to your way of thinking. Having got the money owed Dimitri wants you to take him to the gun shop so exit the porn shop and drive on over to the gun shop higlighted. Enter it and buy a Micro-SMG. Now return to the car and drive Dimitri home to complete the mission. Mission Complete! <Final Destination> [FD] Tasks to Do: Drive over to the Train Station Kill Lenny when he gets off the train Faustin tells Niko that there is a rat within their operations who is leaking information to the authorities who needs to be eliminated. Faustin has located the rat in question and his name is Lenny and he's due in at the nearby train station shortly. When he gets off, Niko is to assasinate him. Grab a car or a taxi and drive over to the train station in South Bohan. If you choose to drive then be sure to pay the toll on the freeway to avoid getting a wanted level. When you get there, draw your gun and head on up the stairs onto the main platform and wait for the train to arrive. When it does Lenny and his friend see you and quickly run off. To make things easier, cap his friend. You can't kill Lenny since a train always blocks your line of fire before you can get a shot at him. When the train passes quickly race after him and take him down before he reaches his car. If you don't then he zooms off and you must chase him in a car and take him down. Either way, once he's dead, Niko will phone Faustin to report the successful hit. Mission Complete! After completing "Final Destination" the "F" icon reappears on your radar and you can go on with Faustin's missions. However, Roman also phones you and asks you to come and meet him at his taxi depot. This won't take long so it's time to take a quick detour from Faustin and sort Roman out. ----------------------- Roman Bellic ----------------------- <Logging On> [LO] Tasks to do: Drive to the Tw@ internet cafe Log onto a computer Register your email account This isn't really a mission, more a tutorial on using the in game internet services. Grab the taxi inside Roman's depot and drive on over to the highlighted tw@ internet cafe. Enter it and approach a vacant terminal and press L1 in order to log onto it. Using the L3 stick highlight the internet icon and press x to log onto the net. On the right of the screen is an envelope icon which is your email account so select that and open your email from "EYE FINDER". Select the "reply" button to send them a positive reply. Now exit the cafe. Mission Complete! You can now go online any time you wish by simply visitting one of the tw@ internet cafes dotted around Liberty City. Now, let's return to Faustin as we only have a couple more missions for him now. ----------------------- Faustin ----------------------- <No Love Lost> [NLL] Tasks to Do: Locate the Biker Chase him on the bike Chase him and his friends to the park and take them all out Niko walks in on a little domestic between Faustin and his wife. It seems their daughter is dating a biker whom Faustin does not approve of and wants Niko to take out. Before you start this mission be sure to have some armour and full health as many new players find chasing on a bike a little tricky as it is very easy to fall off and take some damage. Drive on over to the spot indicated on the radar and the biker will drive off to gather his friends so grab the nearby bike and give chase. The trick to this is to not bother trying to shoot him but concentrate on following him. Go easy on the corners and be sure to release the R2 button to avoid spinning out of control. After a bit of chasing he will meet up with his friends and you now have 6 targets to follow. Again, don't bother trying to wipe them out just follow them until they dismount at the park. Now, quickly take cover behind a nearby tree and pick them off one by one. They aren't that heavily armed except for one who has a shotgun so watch out for him and be sure to pick up any ammo and weapons they leave behind once they're down. Mission Complete! <Rigged to Blow> [RTB] Tasks to Do: Go pick up the van filled with explosives Drive to the Auto garage Blow the garage up by activating the explosives This mission is a piece of cake provided you're a careful driver and don't piss the cops off. An auto parts garage in Chase Point owes Faustin some money so he wants you to go teach them a lesson. Either drive or take a taxi to the old factory marked on your radar and get in the truck. Now drive carefully and I mean carefully over to the Auto Parts garage. The explosives in the truck are extremely sensitive so drive sanely and make sure to stop at the toll booth on the freeway as even a one star wanted level can be a lethal thing in this situation. Along the way you will get a couple of phone calls which demonstrate just how on edge Niko is but apart from that it's a fairly simple drive over. Once you're at the Auto Parts garage park up inside and arm the explosives. A rather cool cinema will now begin where Niko runs like hell as the garage is blown sky high. Mission Complete! <The Master and the Molotov> [MAM] Tasks to Do: Grab some weapons from the local gun shop Head on over to Perestroika where Faustin is hanging out Kill him! This mission is technically for Dimitri as he is your contact. However he is part of Faustin's clan so I figured it wouldn't make much difference either way. This mission is similar to "Uncle Vlad" except that the goons are heavily armed this time. Before making your way to the Club as the on screen prompts suggest, set a way point on the nearest gun shop and head on over there. Get as many pistol/Micro SMG rounds as you can afford. Don't worry about armour as Dimitri gives you that in a minute. Now head on over to the club. When you get there, Dimitri informs you he has left you some protection around the back so head to the green dumpsters behind the club and grab the armour he has left for you. Now enter the club to trigger the confrontation with Faustin. You gain control as Faustin calls for backup and alot of russians come shooting at you. Faustin is behind the bar and is your primary target. It is not necessary to wipe them all out but you will need to wipe out a few in order to clear you're passage to the bar. Using the tables and booths as cover, make your way over to the bar where Faustin is. When you get near him he legs it out of the back door so follow him but be wary of some more goons who are waiting inside the passage way. Follow Faustin up some more stairs, watching out for the goon lurking just near the top of the stairs and on to the roof where he finally gives up running. Now kill him using your pistol to get an execution style killing. Mission Complete! NOTE: After this mission is completed call Dimitri and he will tell you to come to the warehouse in Downtown to collect your money. Before doing this, pay another visit to the gun shop and get some more armour (as the previous gun fight may have depleted it somewhat) and make sure to have a decent amount of ammo for both the pistol and Micro-SMG. Some shotgun shells are also handy but not essential. Once you are fully tooled up head over to the warehouse. On the way there, Little Jacob will phone you and tell you that "dem russians is seriously vexed with you" and offers his support which is handy. <Russian Revolution> [RR] Tasks to Do: Rendezvous with Little Jacob at the Warehouse Battle the Russians and escape the warehouse with Jacob Lose your wanted level and get Little Jacob safely home When you arrive at the warehouse you will find Little Jacob all ready waiting for you around the side. Meet up with him and then enter the warehouse to trigger a long cut scene where some more is revealed about Niko's past and a figure emerges whom Niko presumed had long since vanished. Then the battle begins. It would appear that Dimitri is not a man of his word. You now have twenty odd heavily armed russians mobsters to take care of with only Little Jacob to back you up. Your first objective is to annihilate the mobsters and get to the front entrance of the warehouse which is your only means of escape. During the ensuing battle, bear in mind the following things: i Little Jacob ain't bullet proof - You have to be on your toes as Little Jacob takes damage quicker than you do and if he dies it's mission failed. ii Blind Fire is useful - Whilst behind cover simply aim the cross hair at an enemy and press R2 to fire. This makes Niko fire without having to emerge from cover. It is less accurate but better for conserving health. iii Avoiding long bursts of firing - The longer you fire a weapon, the bigger the recoil becomes and the less accurate your aim is. Keep tapping R2 rather than holding it on to maximise accuracy. iv Finders Keepers! Dead Russians will drop items such as gun ammo. If it is safe to do so then nab it as you will probably use a hell of alot of ammo during this mission. The above tips will make the gun battle much easier. When you finally get to the front of the warehouse the cops make an appearance and Little Jacob tells you to take him back home. Before proceeding, look up at the beam over the door and take out the russian there. Now leg it outside and grab the nearest car (this will probably be one of the cruisers) and drive drive drive! Avoid main roads at all costs and focus instead for back alleys and side roads to make losing the heat that much easier. Pay N' Sprays are no use as they won't touch a cop car so focus on driving through back streets to lose your wanted level. Once the cops are gone it is a simple matter of driving Little Jacob back home so follow your GPS navigator back to his house. Mission Complete! This concludes dealings with the Russian Mob, for now. Next on the list is that steroid dependant body builder named Brucie that Roman introduce you to. He is indicated by the "B" icon on your radar so head on over there when you're ready. NOTE: After this mission, assuming all the other Faustin missions have been completed, Roman will call you and ask you to meet him in an alleway off Hopper Street. Ignore it for now and proceed to Brucie. ----------------------- Brucie ----------------------- <Search and Delete> [SD] Tasks to Do: Obtain a Police Cruiser Locate Lyle Rivas Chase him down and kill him Your first mission for Brucie is actually quite an enjoyable as it allows you to try out a number of new features in the game. Rivas is a witness to a crime Brucie committed and Niko is sent to silence him. First we need to find out where Rivas is as Brucie's directions aren't much good. Whip out your cell phone and dial 911 and then select police when the woman asks you which service you want. Shortly a police cruiser will appear so wait till the officers exit the vehicle before getting inside yourself. Now simply drive up the road and keep going until you lose your one star wanted level. Pull up somewhere and press L1 to access the police computer. Select "SEARCH POLICE RECORDS" and then "SEARCH BY NAME". Type in Lyle Rivas and his profile will come up. Select "LOCATE CRIMINAL" to add his hideout to your radar and then follow your GPS navigator to his apartment. Enter the building to trigger a cutscene during which Rivas legs it and drives off in his car. Grab your police cruiser and chase after him and proceed to ram him off the road. Continue chasing and ramming until he gets out of his car at which point simply accelerate and squash him under your wheels. Mission Complete! NOTE: Before activating the next mission, be sure to stock up on both Micro-SMG rounds and armour <Easy as can be> [ECB] Tasks to Do: Head on over to Yorktown Avenue and grab the car Eliminate the enemies Lose your wanted level Get the car back to Brucie's garage Head on over to Yorktown avenue and pick up the highlighted blue oracle. When you do, a cutscene shows some rival gang members appearing in their cars who are hell bent on you not getting that car. You can try and outrun them but it is close to impossible as you have three cars each with four members in them firing at you and the car will probably be destroyed before you get to the garage. So, best take them out first. Using L3, swivel the cross hair around behind you and blast the car there. Aim at the windsreen to take out the two front enemies quickly. Now swivel it to your left and take out the car there. Finally, drive forward and follow the alley around, drive out of it and then quickly reverse as the third car makes itself known to you. Continue blasting and take them out as well. There is a possibility that all this shooting will have earned you a one or two star wanted level. If so then drive through the nearby alleyways to lose it. Once all the heat is gone it is a simple drive over to Brucie's garage and drive it inside. Mission Complete! We will be coming back to Brucie in a little while but Roman is still waiting in that alleyway off Hopper Street and requires some attention so head on over there to trigger the final story mission of Broker. ----------------------- Roman Bellic ----------------------- <Roman's Sorrow> [RS] Tasks to Do: Rendevous with Roman in the alley Drive to Roman's Apartment Drive to Roman's Taxi Rank Escape Broker to Bohan When you get to the alleyway, Niko explains the new developments to Roman and both cousins decide that they should get out of Broker for a bit. Roman says that Mallorie has a place that they could use and he gives her a call. She agrees but Roman needs to pick something up from his apartment first. Hop into the car and drive over to Roman's apartment. Upon arrival it has been set on fire and Roman urges Niko to get to the cab firm to see if that's ok. Drive over there and you'll see that it too has been burned to cinders. Now Roman is really pissed off as is Niko and the two cousins need to get off Broker now and go to Mallorie's place in Bohan to start a new life. I would reccomend taking a taxi as it is a long haul over to Bohan but driving allows you some good sight seeing. Either way, simply drive on over to Mallorie's place in South Bohan and step into the yellow marker. Mission Complete and welcome to Bohan! =============================================================================== Bohan =============================================================================== NOTE: Before starting mission one be sure to have full health and armour as well as plenty of ammo for your pistol and Micro-SMG. After a lengthy cut scene, you materialise outside of your new safe house in Bohan. Having lost both his business and home in one go, Roman suggests that they set up home here now and forget about returning to Broker till the heat is off them. Feel free to do a spot of sight seeing as Bohan is a little bigger than Broker and has another gun shop with better weapons, as well as numerous club, bars and restaurants to check out. Once you're done sight seeing, head on over to the M icon on your radar and enter the yellow marker to trigger the first story mission of Bohan. ------------------------------- Manny ------------------------------- The M icon leads you to the community centre in South Bohan which is Manny's base of operations. He is a former gangster/drug dealer who is out to clean up the streets and boost his TV career. It should be noted that although Manny's intentions are noble, it is seldom him who actually does the cleaning up. Guess who does? <Escuela of the Streets> [ETS] Tasks to Do: Head on over to Grand Boulevard Follow the dealer to the warehouse Wipe them all out. Manny has heard of some local drug dealers doing some business and wants them off the streets. Grab a car and follow the GPS guide over to the dealers place on Grand Boulevard. Park up in the yellow marker and wait for the dealer to set off in his car. Now follow him, making sure to stay a good distance behind him, two car lengths is sufficient as Niko tells Manny. After a bit of driving around the dealer will stop outside a warehouse and go inside to meet his friends. Manny tells you to go in there after him and put them out of business for good. There are two ways you can do this. First simply blow the lock off the door and enter the warehouse blowing heads off left and right. However, doing this makes the missions harder than necessary as they are waiting just inside the door and will likely kill you before you can do much damage. A much better way of doing it is this. Head right around the back of the building and climb up onto the roof. Go along the roof and you will find, along with another gun to add to your arsenal, an open skylight. Crouch down next to it and you will see the back of one dealer. Nail him with one quick headshot and then get a good look at the warehouse below and see if there are any more you can pick off while you're up here. There should be a couple but you will eventually have to jump down into the warehouse to finish off the majority of them. Just remember the tricks from "Russian Revolution" and use anything you can see for cover. Also, if you get low on health there is a drinks machine at the back of the warehouse which will replenish your health as often as necessary. When all the dealers are dead, head to the front and go through the front door (you may need to shoot the lock off if you followed the roof top strategy) and meet Manny. Mission Complete! <Street Sweeper> [SS] Tasks to Do: Head over to the Windmill Street Garage Waste the gang members Chase down the escaping gang member in a car and kill them A bunch of gang members currently residing at a garage in Windmill Street need to be smoked out and cleaned up. Niko seems to be the man for the job. Grab a car and head on over to the garage. Don't grab a tai as you can use the car as cover during the next fire fight. When you arrive two of the gang members are chatting outside so mow them down quickly. If you don't manage to kill them you will at least weaken them somewhat. Now quickly take cover, either behind the car or the pillars of the garage and quickly waste the three gang members. Now grab a car and chase after the other two in the car. Once you catch up with them commence firing at their car and particularly at the back windscreen to do maximum damage. Once they're down, Niko phones Manny to report a successfull clean up operation. Mission Complete! After this, Mallorie will call and say that she has another friend who needs some work doing. Always happy to help, Niko says he'll pay her a visit and an E icon appears on your radar. Follow it to meet Elizabeta. ----------------------- Elizabeta ----------------------- Niko arrives at Elizabeta's apartment where she is having a chat with Packie McReary who is planning a little deal and wants some protection. Elizabeta knows just the man. You. <Luck of the Irish> [LI] Tasks to Do: Drive over to the apartment block in South Bohan Get the sniper rifle from the roof Watch over the deal Kill all the dealers Help Packie out when he gets into trouble Packie says the deal is going on in South Bohan and that Niko should watch over the deal from the roof of the apartment block opposite. Grab a car or taxi and head on over there. Enter and go up the stairs to the roof. Grab the sniper rifle and head right to the spot overlooking the deal. Press L3 and crouch down (it makes your aim more accurate) and press L2 to look through the scope. To zoom in press L3 forward and to zoom out press it back. Zoom in just enough to get all the dealers in the scope so you can switch from one to the next when it kicks off. After a while, the deal goes bad so quickly shoot all the men and you will get a notice saying that Packie is in trouble. Zoom out and you'll see him in the left corner of the screen near the front of the area grappling with one guy. Shoot him in the head to complete the mission. Mission Complete! NOTE: Be sure to stock up on health and armour before activating the next mission. A few grenades would also be quite useful if money allows. <Blow Your Cover> [BYC] Tasks to Do: Drive you and Playboy X to the apartment block Get up to the third floor where the deal is going on Blast your way through the cops to the roof Fight the cops on the roof and get back down to street level Lose the heat and take Playboy X back to his crib Another deal is going down and this time Playboy X needs your help. Grab a car and head on over to the marked apartment block on your radar. Step into the yellow marker and follow Playboy inside. Instead of following him directly go forwards and nab the shotgun from under the stairs to add to your arsenal and then follow him upto the third floor. During the cutscene it becomes apparent that this deal is in fact a set up and you now have to fight your way through the cops in order to escape. If you have some grenades then lob a couple through the hole in the wall and blow the two cops there to smithereens. If not then simply use R1 to take cover behind the wall and use the auto-aim feature to shoot them through the hole in the wall. Now follow Playboy over to the door but don't go through it yet. Take cover on the left side of the door and look around the door using R3. There are two cops waiting for you. One at the end by the window and one is taking cover just next to the railings on the stairs. The one by the window is easy to nail with a couple of shots with your gun so get rid of him and this should draw his colleague out. If it doesn't then simply go out into the hall and he will jump out and start firing so take cover again before he deals you too much damage. Once both have been dispatched, Niko will tell Playboy it is sage to come out so proceed out of the first room and go to the foot of the stairs. Proceed up the stairs slowly and a NOOSE guy will roll out and block your path. Dispose of him and continue up the stairs to find a couple more NOOSE guys waiting for you. Shoot them and continue on up the next set of stairs to the roof where yet more cops are waiting for you. Head onto the roof and take cover behind the nearby block (also grab the first aid kit if you need it) and shoot the two cops waiting for you here. Making sure to remain covered as often as possible, head across the roof to find three more NOOSE guys waiting for you. Kill them and then proceed carefully down the stairs. Be wary of the two NOOSE guys that are waiting for you on the stairs. The best way to do it is to use R3 to look around corners when you reach the bottom of each set of stairs. This way you will see them first so take cover behind the wall and use auto aim to shoot them before they can get a shot in. Once you reach street level you have a two star wanted level and Playboy asks you to take him back to his crib. Grab the nearby vehicle and floor it. Take a few turns through alleys and back passages and you should be able to lose two stars with minimum difficulty. Once the heat is off simply follow the yellow GPS route back to Playboy's place to complete the mission. Mission Complete! Following this mission, Playboy X will call you and now opens up as a contact for business. First though, we have one more mission for Manny to attend to so head back to his place in Bohan and step into the yellow marker. ------------------------------- Manny ------------------------------- <The Puerto Rican Connection> [PRC] Boy this mission is a pain in the ass as you have to follow a train to the El Burro train station. Sounds easy? Wrong? The train has the tracks to follow whereas we only have the roads and the roads don't always go where the track does. Once the cutscene ends, grab a car and head on over to the highlighted location on your radar to see the train begin to pull away. Follow it and note that you can use circle to zoom in on it if you get a little bit behind. The trick to this mission is not to worry too much about following the train directly. Just going in the same direction will suffice and as long as you don't either lose it completely or going in the opposite direction then you will be fine. Once you get there, you learn that the targets (he has friends) have just disembarked. Quickly run up the stairs and wait for them on this level of the station. When they appear simply blast them all to complete the mission. If you don't nail them at the station then a car chase ensues. In this instance, grab a car and follow them whilst firing as many bullets into their car as you can. A Mirco SMG is good for this sort of thing. Mission Complete! After this mission, Elizabeta calls and she sounds a bit uptight so we'd better go see whats up with her. Before you activate her next mission though be sure to have full health, full armour and a shed load of ammo for either your pistol or Micro SMG, preferably both and a few grenades to make things easier. NOTE: Around this time you will get a call from somebody asking you to go meet them at Castle Gardens Pier and a ? will appear on your radar. Ignore it for now though and go sort out Elizabeta. ----------------------- Elizabeta ----------------------- <Snow Storm> [SS] Tasks to Do: Head on over to the old hospital Fight your way through the gang members and the coke Escape the hospital and lose the heat Rendevous with Little Jacob in an alleway Alot of people say this mission is hard but it really isn't provided you know how to deal with cops at the end. Essentially, Elizabeta has lost her coke in an abandoned hospital on the outskirts of Algonquin and wants Niko to go retrieve it. The problem is a local gang have got the stuff guarded pretty well so getting it back is going to involve quite a heavy gun fight. Grab a taxi or car (I prefer a taxi since it's a long trek over to the hospital and a getaway car really isn't necessary for this one) and head on over to the hospital and stop in the yellow marker. After the cutscene showing you exactly how many gang members are guarding the coke proceed to the edge of the car park and look across at the wire fence. Behind here are two gang members have a chat so lob a couple of grenades at them and blow them away. Now take out your Micro-SMG and look right and use auto aim to aim at another guy on the window ledge to the right. Blast him and the proceed over the wire fence. Follow the path round to the front door of the hospital and immediatley take cover behind the window to the right as you will be met with alot of fire from the members inside. Lob a couple of grenades through the window which should take care of some of the members on the floor and then look up at the top left of the area and take care of the member up there. Now head inside and finish off any remaining gang members in this area. Now proceed to the far right of the area and hide behind the block here. Look across and you will see a number of gang members positioned in the opposite hallway. Two of them you can take care of from your current hiding place so wait till they come out to fire and then shoot them. Now run to the door leading to the hallway and take cover on the left side. Lob a couple of grenades down the hallway which should take out some of the guys here. Now proceed down the hallway and take out the remainder of the guys being careful to look up as you enter a new section as there are two who are hiding on the top levels. Now follow the hallway around until you come to the back room with two more guys in it. Take cover behind the right wall and blast the one directly in front of the entrance. Now switch to the left side and take care of the one hiding behind the table (careful though he can do so damage with his weapon) and then enter the room. Before collecting the coke grab the first aid kit just in case your health is a bit low and then walk to the table to collect Elizabeta's coke. Now this is where it gets fun and a little tricky. NOOSE guys storm the place and will endeavour to stop you escaping with the coke. Contrary to popular belief it is not a good idea to wait till the wave of NOOSE guys dies down as it won't and the longer you wait, the harder it is to escape as there are more NOOSE guys to fight. Exit the room and follow the hallway back to the front door of the hospital. Don't stop to fight the cops as it will only increase your wanted level and be sure to sprint to minimise the damage you take. Now, many walkthroughs tell you to go left and grab a car. This does work but trying to lose a three star wanted level is very hard particularly as there are alot of dead ends which can mislead you and get you busted/wasted. Instead, from the front door of the hospital don't go left to the car park but go right and head for the wall. Jump over it. Hopefully you will land on a jetty with a speed boat parked there. If you miss it and land in the water simply swim over to it (don't worry about the cops as the boats they use won't be there yet). Start up the boat and speed forwards into the open water. You will encounter some police boats now but don't worry as you're too fast for them so keep driving until you lose the wanted level. Once the heat is off, Niko calls Little Jacob who tells Niko where to meet him. Head on over to the indicated alley and step into the yellow marker to trigger a rather revealing cut scene. Mission Complete! NOTE: Shortly after completing this mission, Michelle will call and a ? will appear on your radar. Ignore it for now as we will come to it in good time. We now have one more mission to do for Elizabeta before proceeding to Algonquin so head back over to her place and step into the yellow marker. <Have a Heart> [HH] Tasks to Do: Drive the bodies over to The Doctore After the hellish nature of the last mission this mission is a cinch provided you're a careful driver. Grab the car with the two bodies inside the trunk and follow the yellow GPS route over to "The Doctor" in Algonquin. Be careful as the trunk can pop open if you drive too recklessly so be as careful as you can and be sure to pay the toll to avoid any unwanted legal attention. Once you get there simply park inside the blue marker to complete the mission. Easy eh? Mission Complete! NOTE: Story-wise we are now done in Bohan. However there is still a ton of things to do which you can checkout the other sections for. Right now though we have bigger and better things to do in Algonquin. =============================================================================== Algonquin =============================================================================== ----------------------- Brucie ----------------------- Our first set of missions in a new city actually comes from an old friend. Brucie has some more work for you and tells him to come see him so follow the yellow GPS route to his place and begin the first half of a two part mission. <Out of the Closet> [OOC] Tasks to Do: Arrange a date with French Tom Attend the Date and waste French Tom Remember Rivas from "Search and Delete"? Well it seems his cousin is causing Brucie a bit of trouble and Brucie wants Niko to go take him out. Grab a car/ taxi and head for any one of the tw@ internet cafes marked on your radar. Once there, head inside and press L1 to log onto a computer and then press "WEB". Click on the Love-Meet ad (it should be on the right of your screen) and then select "MALE". Search for French Tom and then select his profile. Scroll down to the bottom of his profile and then select "DATE". You have now completed the first part of this mission and you have to wait till Tom emails you back confirming a date and time. The quickest way to pass the time is to return to a safehouse and save your game to advance time. Save a couple of times just to be on the safe side and then return to a tw@ internet cafe and check your email by which time he should have replied. Respond positively to his email and a reminder will now be set in your organiser in your phone telling you when the date is. When it gets to an hour before the date your phone will remind you so kill time until then. I would advise against doing another mission simply because you don't want to be late for this appointment. When the agreed time comes around, nab a car and head on over to the restaurant marked on your radar. Upon entering, head right to the back to meet up with French Tom. After a little talking, you will be told you can whack him so press L1 to stand up and then aim your weapon at him. Be quick because he runs so put a couple of bullets in him to successfully complete the mission. Mission Complete! NOTE: You may gain a one star wanted level if any cops happen to be passing so just run outside and down the nearby alley to lose it. NOTE: Brucie calls about Roman and then Dimitri calls to remind you that you are a dead man. Nice! <No. 1> [NO1] Tasks to Do: Drive you and Brucie over to the racing car Compete in and win the race After successfully icing French Tom, return to Brucie's place for his next mission. It seems that Brucie is getting into some illegal street racing and wants Niko to drive for him. Grab a car (or a taxi as it is quite a trek to where the racing car is) and Brucie will call his friend Stevie on the way to tell him they need to borrow his car for a bit. Once you get to the yellow infernus, get into it and drive on over to the race starting point. Drive carefully though because this car needs to remain driveable. There isn't an awful lot a walkthrough can help you with on missions like this because it relies solely on your skill as a driver. However I can give you a couple of useful pointers which will help you. First off, take it steady. There are no bonuses for wrecking the other cars or any other tomfoolery. When the other cars try and ram each other off the road ignore them and carry on as anything other than first place means you fail the mission and must start it over again. Secondly, take it easy on the corners. Sports cars such as the infernus are very easy to flip or to lose control of so just tap R2 when accelerating around corners in order to maintain control of the vehicle. Once you win the race, Brucie congratulates you and even gives you the car as a present! Drive the car back to a safe house and park it in the reserved spot. You may also need a quick visit to a pay n' spray as the car may possibly have taken a battering during the race. Now let us turn our attention to the "PX" icon on your radar. Before going there though, be sure to have full armour and health. Weapons will be provided however. ----------------------- Playboy X ----------------------- In his head he rules Liberty City and is large and in charge. In reality he is a small time gangster with very little going for him. Still, he pays well so that's a plus. <Deconstruction for Beginners> [DFB] Tasks to Do: Collect the weapons from the car Take care of the three sniper lookouts Take out the four union workers located inside the site This is a fun mission but it does involve a little bit of prep before we actually get to the meat of it. Grab a car (or taxi as it is a long(ish) trip and get over to the van parked in Cadtle Gardens. Once there, clamber into it and collect all the weapons Playboy has left for you. He now fills you in on what he wants you to do which is to get rid of the Mafia goons currently terrorising the opposite construction site. He also points out the three look outs who are posted up high that you need to get rid of before proceeding into the site. So, from the car, exit the car and go to the window cleaning lift on the left. Press L1 to board it and then use the L3 stick to get up onto the roof top. From here, you have a perfect birds eye view of the construction site and can clear a few enemies on ground level from here but concentrate on the three lookouts for a moment. Equip your newly acquired sniper rifle and look to the far right of the construction site at the crane. Target number one is posted here so shoot him (once is sufficient) to dispose of him. The second one is located a little to the left of the previous target near the middle of the construction site also on a crane platform. The the third is on the far left of the construction site on a third crane platform. Once all three are gone you are done with the rooftop and Playboy will tell you to get down and clear out the construction. From here however you may be able to see some enemies patrolling the site so pick them off if you can as you are too high to be damaged. You can only pick off a few foes at this point though as most are inside the construction site which you can't get at from this vantage point. Leave Playboy on the roof and use the cleaning lift to get back down to street level. Instead of going into the construction site as he suggests put a way point on the nearest gun retailer and go get some armour as it will make things ten times easier if you have both full health and armour. Now, fully armed, return to the construction site's entrance. Don't go in fully yet though and take out your sniper rifle again. As Playboy indicates the first Union Leader is located in the scaffolding east of the yeard you're currently in. Position yourself to the left of the main entrance and snipe him from a safe position. This will likely attract the attention of some mafia goons (or if that doesn't then you entering the site fully will) so run for cover and start picking them off as they come. Be warned, they come from all directions and particularly watch out for a couple in the scaffolding who are particularly heavily armed. Once a lull appears in the fighting head for the scaffolding and check behind the pillar near the ramp on ground level for a first aid kit if you need it. Now proceed carefully up the ramps to the top storey picking off goons as you go. You will no doubt spot a wooden ramp leading up to the roof but be careful as there is a shed load of goons on the roof (assuming you didn't get them from the roof top earlier) so lob a couple of grenades up there to clear a few and then emerge onto the rooftop and start blasting heads off with your Assault Rifle making sure to take advantage of the cover available in this area. A cut- scene will now occur and Niko will take cover and get out a grenade. Lob it at the nearby goons and blow them away now take out your assault rifle and dispose of any survivors. Now proceed to the far left corner and eliminate Union Leader number 2. Playboy will now indicate the third Union Leader in the south west corner by the water ducts. He is surrounded by yet more mafia goons however so proceed to the ramp but instead of crossing it, head over to the stack of beams and use your sniper rifle to pick off not only the Union Leader but his goons as well. Three down! One to go! The last one is to the right of where you are now and yet more mafia goons appear as well as a helicopter to help him escape. Ignore the chopper though and thin out the ranks with a couple of well placed grenades and assault rifle fire. Now continue firing and ducking until you reach the final Union Leader. Blow him away to complete the mission. Mission Complete! NG: You will likely have many of the weapons left which means you get a pretty heavy arsenal for free to save your game so that, should you get busted, you don't lose all the weapons again. <Photo Shoot> [PS] Tasks to Do: Locate the two gangs at the basketball courts down in Exeter Photograph them both and send both photos to Playboy Once he points out Marlon, whack him. Provided you have a bit of patience and good firing skills this mission is pretty straight forward compared with the last one. Grab a car and head on over to the basketball courts down in Exeter. Park across the street from the courts and you will see two gangs, one of which contains your target. The one you want is the gang stood in the centre of the courts chatting. One of the members has a yellow coat on with a dark red stripe on it. Stand in the middle of the road (getting much closer gives the game away) and get a good, clear photograph of them. Then send it to Playboy X who will then contact you and point out who Marlon is. If he texts you it usually means the photo is either of the wrong gang or not clear enough so in that case simply redo it. Normally, he will ring you if it's good enough and tell you which is Marlon. Once he does either blast Marlon from the edge of the courts or go inside the courts and whack him. Either way, mission passed! Mission Complete! This concludes our business with Playboy X for the moment so now go get some armour and ammo (if you need it) and head on over to the "D" icon on your radar to begin dealings with Dwayne whom we met a short while ago. ----------------------- Dwayne Forbes ----------------------- Fresh out of prison after a long stretch, Dwayne is finding adjusting to life on the outside a little difficult and is losing the will to carry on. As he feels a little sorry for him and because any money is good money, Niko agrees to help him out a little. <Ruff Rider> [RR] Tasks to Do: Go find Cherise and Jayvon downtown Deal with Cherise Waste Jayvon Dwayne wants you to go pay Cherise, his ex girlfriend, a little visit as she's been carrying on with a local biker while he's been inside. Grab a car and head on down to the restaurant marked on your radar where Cherise is talking with Jayvon the biker. After the cutscene you have a choice. Kill Cherise, or let her live. See the appropriate section for more details but choose fast as Jayvon is swiftly getting away. Once you've dealt with her grab a fast vehicle (preferably a bike if one is going) and give chase. Jayvon will weave in and out of traffic and generally take a somewhat unorthodox route through town but do your best to nail him and keep on his tail. The best place to do it is on the straight stretch of road that he turns onto soon after the chase begins but anywhere will do really. Once he's down, you're done! Mission Complete! <Undress to Kill> [UTK] Tasks to Do: Get suitably equipped Drive on over to the Triangle Club Kill the three managers It seems that gangsters have taken over the Triangle Club and Dwayned wants it back now he's free. Before proceeding to the club as the mission instructions suggest,flag down a cab and get to the nearest gun shop. Here, stock up on ammo if you need it but get some armour and a baseball bat. Now head back outside and go to the club as directed. Before you enter the club make sure to disarm yourself as weapons are not permitted inside and the merest sight of a gun in there will cause all hell to break loose which you don't want to happen yet. Once inside the club go over to the balcony where the two guys are talking and you will hear one mention that Jose (the first manager) is counting his takings in the back office and doesn't want to be disturbed. Turn round and head through the door on the right to the back office. You'll notice that Jose's back is to you so get out your baseball bat and whack him quickly before he has a chance to fire back. Don't use a gun because that will alert the bodyguards which you don't need right now so kill him quietly and then exit the office. Having not used a weapon, nobody in the club is any the wiser which means you can proceed with ease. Head onto the dance floor and around to the other side by the stairs and you will hear "Javiar" (manager two) trying to teach a dancer how to pronounce his name. Ignore him for the moment and proceed up the stairs into the back corridor. Walk to the bodyguard and he will tell you that Jesus (manager 3) is currently test driving a new dancer and you'll have to wait if you want a private showing. It now doesn't matter which you take out first as both will result in the place erupting so kill both and kill them swiftly. The easiest way is to stand at the entrance to the corridor you're in now and position the camera so that you can clearly see Javiar. Now waste him and quickly about turn and take out the bodyguard and Jesus. Once both are dead, run like hell back to the entrance of the club and into the car park to complete the mission. Mission Complete! -------------------------- Francis McReary -------------------------- Francis McReary is the Deputy Police Commissioner who wants Niko to help him take care of some business in exchange for him not revealing Niko's past to the whole world. His first mission can be found at the end of the pier in Castle Gardens so proceed there when you're ready. <Call and Collect> [CAC] Tasks to Do: Locate the Blackmailer Rub him out Lose the cops Give the USB stick to Francis It seems somebody is blackmailing Francis and he wants Niko to put a stop to it by getting rid of him. Head over to the spot marked on your radar to get a call from Francis who tells you the Blackmailers number. The idea is to call him and then see who answers their phone on the water front below. Before you do this however, nip down the stairs and stand by the hot dog stand so that you're facing the benches. Now call the blackmailer and you'll see one person stood by one of the benches answer their phone. This is your man. Quickly chase him down and cap him before he gets away. When he's down, grab the USB pen he dropped containing the photographs. Unfortunatley this attracts a two star wanted level so proceed back up to street level, grab a car and drive like hell out of the surrounding area. Nip down the nearby alleyways to shake the heat quickly. Now simply go to the way point marked on your radar and give the USB pen to Francis to complete the mission. Mission Complete! Shortly after completing this mission Francis calls and invites you down to the police station. He says it might be nice for Niko to enter it as an honest citizen for once. Head on over to the F icon when you're ready to activate the first part of another two part mission. <Final Interview 1> [FI1] Tasks to Do: Go to a tw@ internet cafe Log onto a computer and visit "Ligner and Schyster" website Send in your CV to them via the "careers" section Exit the cafe This isn't a mission per se but is more preparation for the next mission. Tom Goldberg, a lawyer at the "Ligner and Schyster" law firm has some files on McReary that Francis wants disposed of. The plan is for Niko to kill him and then take the files to Francis. From where the cut scene ends, grab a vehicle and get over to a tw@ internet cafe. The nearest is in North Holland but it doesn't matter which one and log onto a computer. Scroll the home page for the advert for "Ligner and Schyster" and click it to go to their homepage. Click on careers and then upload your CV to them. Once that's done their number will automatically be added to your phone book so log off and exit the cafe. Mission Complete! Well wasn't that hard? Now you need to wait for the firm to call you back to arrange an interview time. You will need to look the part so head to Perseus and buy a nice suit and black shoes (no loafers) to kill time. NOTE: Around this time Mallorie will call you. Ignore her call as it triggers a mission which you don't have time to do yet. We will get to it in due course however. Exactly when she calls appears to be random but whenever she does, ignore her for the time being. Once you have a suit and smart shoes there is nothing to do but wait for a call from the lawyers. When they have arranged an interview time you will have some time to kill. I would reccomend taking some friends out and raising your status with them while you wait. When the time comes, grab a cab and head on over to the law firm marked on your radar to trigger part 2 of this mission. <Final Interview 2> [FI2] Tasks to Do: Enter the lawyer's building Follow the lady on reception to Goldberg's office Kill Goldberg and grab the files Lose the heat and get the files to McReary NOTE: Before commencing this mission be sure to have full health, armour and some weapons including a knife. The interview and Niko's best shot at Goldberg has arrived. Walk up the front steps and to the intercom. If you're correctly attired the lady on reception will buzz you through. If it won't let you in and you can't see why it won't it is usually your shoes that are unsuitable.In this case, nip back to Perseus and be sure to buy a pair of plan black shoes. Nothing fancy. Now return to the lawyer's firm to continue with the mission. Once inside, don't draw a gun and follow the lady to Goldberg's office. Once inside the interview will start. After a brief dialogue you get control again so equip your knife and whack Goldberg then collect the files. The first time I did this nobody came into the office. If this happens then simply walk out with the files. However, the second time I did it the lady from reception came in and saw Goldberg dead. Should this happen, shoot the glass out of the window and jump out of it to the street below. You will now have a two star wanted level so grab the nearest car and drive away and lose the heat. Once they're gone, follow the yellow GPS route to McReary and give him the files to complete the mission. Mission Complete! <Holland Nights> [HN] Tasks to Do: Head on over to the Projects in East Holland Fight your way through Clarence's men and eliminate Clarence Lose the Heat Seems like Mcreary has another "bad guy" for you to wipe out. This one is located in the apartment block at East Holland. Before going to deal with him though make sure you have plenty of assault rifle/heavy weapon ammo and full health and armour. Now follow the yellow GPS marker over to the projects in East Holland where Francis will give you a brief tutorial of the projects. The layout isn't that complicated but it is useful as it shows you where the gang members are based. NOTE: At this point you can bypass the following gun fight and kill Clarence from outside the projects. Follow the wire fence past the low wall and then the playground equipment. Quickly equip your snifer rifle and shoot Clarence in the window facing you. This method has only worked once for me and I find the proper way easier as not only do you need to be lightning fast on the trigger but also a cracking good shot. You only get one chance at it before he sees you and runs off. Assuming you didn't bother with this harder method and want to see Clarence beg for his life, here is how to do it the other way. Enter the yard and put your weapons away. You won't need them before you get to the higher floors and the gang members outside will attack you if they see them. When you get to the door leading inside the block a gang member will block your path. Quickly blow him away and take cover on the inside of the door as this will trigger some reprisal from surrounding gang members. Once the opposition has been eliminated outside proceed to the stairs leading upstairs. Proceed cautiously up the first flight and blow away the gang members there. Now proceed up the stairs, blowing away gang members and making sure to get the first aid kits dotted next to the staircases on two of the floors until you come to the outside area and you see Clarence leg it to the roof. Follow him, blasting the goons and you will come to the roof where Clarence finally has nowhere else to run. Time to make another decision. Kill or spare Clarence. Check out the appropriate section for more details. Regardless of whether you kill him or not you now have a two star wanted level so it's time to go. Leg it back down the stairs to ground level and grab a car. Drive around the block and down some alleys to lose the heat and complete the mission. Mission Complete! <Lure> [LRE] Tasks to Do: Grab the sniper rifle from the car in Hatton Gardens Proceed to the roof of the building opposite the dealers pad Shoot the dealer It seems Clarence lived long enough to cause one more headache for Francis. One of his goons is about to rat on Francis to the feds and must be dealt with. For once, having full health and armour is not essential as this isn't much of a fight. Grab a car and ehad on over to Hatton Gardens where Francis has left a sniper rifle in the trunk of a Feltzer for you. Grab it and then drive over to the building marked on your radar which is opposite the dealer's apartment. Ascend the stairs to the roof and assume a position whereby you have the guy's front window clearly in your sights. Now you are supposed to zoom in at the phone to find out his number. This is tricky however as the type isn't too big or clear. So, whip out your phone and dial 545-555-0122 to get the dealer to his window. Now simply take out your sniper rifle again and put a bullet in his head. Now exit the apartment block and return to street level. Mission Complete! NOTE: This completes our business with Francis for a bit. We can now turn our attention to the other ? icon on your radar. ----------------------- UL Paper ----------------------- As Niko adequatley puts it "the feds have got me by the balls!" which means he must do a couple of favours for his ex girlfriend and her boss in order to keep his ass out of jail. The first of these missions can be found in mid-town Algonquin so head there and step into the yellow marker. <Wrong is Right> [WIR] Tasks to Do: Go to Minhov's house and find out where his meeting is Go to where the meeting is Chase and kill Minhov This mission contains one of the coolest car chase yet, in my opinion and also provides great practice for driving like a maniac through oncoming traffic without screwing your car up too much. When the mission begins, grab a car and head on over to Minhov's house marked on your radar. Upon entering, the place is empty and your contact suggests you read his emails. Enter the living room and press L1 to use his laptop. Click web and then emails to bring up his email inbox. Click on the one with the subject "Meet Me" to find out where the meeting is going to be. Now exit the house. Be warned that Minhov's car is fast so be sure to jack a sports car or other vehicle that can go very fast. There is usually a sports car nearby or driving past so you should be fine. Don't for the love of god get a taxi! When you are driving some suitably hot wheels, drive on over to the meeting place at which point Minhov, seeing Niko pull up, speeds off. Let's Go! Speed off after Minhov. Focus on keeping up with him, a time for shooting him will come in a minute. He takes a very winding route down alleys and across junctions and so on but it's not too difficult to keep up, provided you take it easy around the corners and don't spin too much. After a while he will go down an alley and knock over some beams that block your path. Do a u-turn and commence chasing again. Now begin bombarding him with Micro-SMG fire and be sure to keep on his tail. After a little firing he will either blow up (in which case you're done) or get out and run off as his car catches fire. If this happens, simply floor it and squish him. Either way: Mission Passed! NOTE: Now stock up on armour, health, grenades and sniper rifle rounds. <Portrait of a Killer> [POK] Tasks to Do: Nab a cop car Upload the photo to the police database to find your man Proceed to his location and eliminate both him and his men After the cutscene, wait fora few seconds and you will recieve a text which contains a photograph of the guy you need to take out. Now nab yourself a cop car by either jacking one as it passes by or dialling 911 and waiting for one to come to you. Either way, speed down the street to lose the heat (!) and then pull over. Press L1 to access the police computer and select search databse and then search by photo. Upload the photo you just got into the database to bring up the profile of Adam Dimayev so press X to plot a course on your radar. Drive over to his hidout and park on the other side of the street, next to the low wall. Get out and jump over the wall to use it as cover. Look at the building opposite and you will see the goons are on three levels with Dimayev on the third level. From your safe perch, pick off as many as you can with your sniper rifle and then lob a couple of grenades into the compound to get rid of a few more that you can't quite see from here. Once you have eliminated all you can, draw another weapon and proceed into the compund and climb upto the first level and then upto the third. Be wary of foes who are hidden behind containers and such like because these won't have been accessible from your earlier position. Hopefully though the sniper rifle and grenades did the trick and wiped out the majority of them. Once at the third level, approach Dimayev and put a bullet in him to complete this mission. Mission Complete! We have now done with UL Paper for a little while. Remember that phone call from Mallorie I told you to ignore back in "Final Interview?" Well now is the time to answer it so when she calls again (which she will) answer it to learn that Roman has got himself kidnapped by the Russians and needs his hide saving yet again. --------------- Mallorie --------------- It could be argued that this mission is for Roman since thats who it is about. But, Mallorie is the one that phones you and its her call that activates the mission so I figured it'd be better to put it under her rather than Roman. <Hostile Negotiation> [HN] Tasks to Do: Fight your way through the warehouse to Roman Kill the Russian holding him hostage Drive Roman Home This mission is triggered automatically when you answer Mallorie's phonecall. The reason I reccomend leaving it till now is that you have got more experience with massive gunfights having completed missions such as "Deconstruction for Beginners" and "Portrait of a Killer" and thus are better equipped for the mammoth gun fight that will shortly ensue. Before going to the destination indicated on your map, visit the local gun shop and stock up on armour, assault rifle ammo, grenades and SMG ammo. Also ensure you have full health. Now proceed to the warehouse where Roman is being held and enter it to trigger a cutscene. During the cutscene it appears that Roman is being held upon the top floor and the other floors are crawling with russians. One against 80. Bring it on! You start undercover of a low wall with the russians entirely unaware of your presence. Keep it that way for a moment. Crawl slowly to the other end of the wall (not the very end but near it so the russians on the stairs don't see you) and look at the stairs which have two cannister by them. These will explode if hit so take out your Micro-SMG and fire a bullet or two into them. The explosion will take out the two by the stairs and a couple of others but, there are still many more to deal with and they now all know you're here. The best way to do this is to clean out each floor systematically so that's what we're gonna do. Look right and you'll see two russians there so blow them away and now look up and take out the two firing at you from floor 2 just to make it a little easier. Now look left and take out the two by the stairs (some times the explosion kills them, others it just knocks them flying so finish them off now if they aren't dead yet). When you're sure the ground area is clear, sprint up the stairs and jump over the small ledge and use it as cover. Take out the guy in front of you and then wheel around and shoot the two guys just around the corner. Now, kill the guy to the left of your covering position and look forward. The are in front of you has alot of Russians hiding behind the pillars. Some will reveal themselves often as they start blasting away so shoot them when they appear but others are more intelligent than that and won't actually come out until you get close enough. Lob a couple of grenades (it's a little far to throw but it is possible) to draw them out. If they aren't dead just blast them away as you proceed along the floor. Your sniper rifle is also pretty useful here but not essential. Proceed cautiously along this floor using the pillars and boxes as cover (there maybe a couple of Russians you didn't quite get) and proceed up the stairs. On this floor it's a similar situation whereby the Russians won't show themselves directly so proceed with caution and work your way from pillar to pillar till you reach the stairs leading to floor 4. Tilt the camera up and slowly walk up the stairs till you see 4 men ontop of the wooden beam near the roof. Take them out first as they can do you mega damage if you're not careful and then go up onto the fourth floor. Sprint right and blast those who get in your way. Fight your way to the back room where Roman is being held. When you finally get there, there is one more Russian to deal with. The problem is he has Roman with a gun to his head and is going to kill him unless you quickly take him out. You have three shots to do it in or Roman dies. Aim the cross hair at the Russians head and fire to trigger a cutscene where Roman gets free and the two of you exit the back room. Roman says he wants to go home so grab the truck parked in the yard outside and drive Roman back to his apartment in Bohan to complete the missions. Phew! Mission Complete! NOTE: Shortly after this epic battle is over you will get a call from Roman who tells you that he's bought a new apartment (how the hell did he afford that? I thought he was skint!) and you will have acquired a new safehouse. Having completed "Undress to Kill" and "Photo Shoot" you will now get a call from Playboy. He reminds you not to clean the streets when it involves screwing him over. Secondly he insists Niko comes to his apartment immediatley. ------------------- Playboy X ------------------- [The Holland Play] [THP] Tasks to Do: Go see Playboy Talk to Dwayne Choose: Playboy X or Dwayne After a lengthy cutscene you emerge back on the street outside Playboy's apartment having been told to take out Dwayne. Soon Dwayne will call and Niko is forced to choose between killing Playboy X or Dwayne. Check out the appropriate section for more details on the consequences of choosing either. Whoever you choose, proceed to their marker to take them out. <Dwayne> If you choose Dwayne then head on over to his place and step into the yellow marker to enter his apartment and trigger a cutscene. After the confrontation, Dwayne flees to the kitchen and his goon blocks your path. He offers little resistance so pop a couple of bullets in him and then go into the kitchen and cap Dwayne. Mission Passed! <Playboy X> If you choose to kill Playboy X then make sure to have full health, armour and some grenades and Assault Rifle rounds. Then head on over to his apartment and enter it. When the confrontation scene ends you are outside the apartment with Playboy's goons firing at you. Keep using the door as cover and lob a few grenades into the room to get rid of most of them. Now enter and finish the goons off being careful of the one hiding behind the snooker table. Now run out onto the roof and chase Playboy. Keep chasing him from roof to roof and then down the stairs to street level. Keep chasing him (ignore the patriot full of goons just fire at it and it will zoom off) until you corner Playboy in an alley where he finds he is out of ammo. Now simply shoot him to end the mission or go one step further and use a pistol for a cinematic killing. Mission Passed! Your decision here does have some consequences later on and there is definetly a preferred option. Check out the appropriate section for more details however. We now have a "P" on the radar which represents a very exciting strand of missions for Packie Mcreary whose brother Francis we all ready know. Let's go see him shall we.... ------------------ Packie McReary ------------------ Packie's missions are without question some of the most fun missions in the entire game. I would highly reccomend having full health and armour before beginning any of his missions as you will take a hammering on one occasion or another. <Harbouring a Grudge> [HAG] Tasks to Do: Get to the Docks in Algonquin Climb with Packie upto the roof of the factory Clear the area of Triads Steal the van and take it to Ray's lockup Packie has learned of a shipment coming into the Algonquin docks which the Triads have loaded onto a van and are planning to make a handsome profit out of it. Naturally Packie feels this handsom profit should go to a worthier cause and he wants Niko's help. Grab a car and drive on over to the Algonquin Docks whilst enjoying the amusing conversation along the way. Once you're there follow Packie as he climbs over the gates and onto the roof of the factory. From here you get a good look at the shipment coming in and Packie changes his mind and decides to steal the truck instead. The thing is the area is crawling with Triads so a little clean up operation is needed first. When you gain control equip a weapon and look down at where the ship came in. Take out the three triads there (one is on the far left and a little tricky to spot) and then the one on the far right. Now you can concentrate on the guys on the main floor. Go right a little so you can get a good shot at the main area and lob about three grenades down there to thin the ranks a bit. Now take out a rifle and take out any triad you see making sure not to forget the two around the entrance to the warehouse at the back. Once all seems clear proceed down to the ground level with caution as there may be a couple left that you couldn't reach before. Take those out and head to the left side of the warehouse door and take cover here. Look into the right of the warehouse and you'll see two gunmen here. Cap them and then change to the other side of the door to see two more so cap them and then head into the warehouse. Ignore the truck for a second and head left to the office. Take out the triad here and grab the health if you need it from the wall near the desk. Now get into the van and drive out of the warehouse a bit and wait for Packie to come join you. Follow the yellow GPS route and proceed to Ray's lockup. It is a fairly straight forward drive over there but one Triad car will follow you so either let Packie shoot them or lob a couple of grenades out the window at them. If you do this though, make sure to get far enough away not to blow your truck up. Also, it is possible to simply lose them in the traffic so by all means do this. Whichever way you do it, when you get to Ray's lockup drive in to successfully complete the mission. Mission Complete! <Waste Knot, Want Knots> [WWK] Tasks to Do: Drive Packie and co. to Coney Island's waste depot Fight through the mafia goons and get the cash Escape with Packie by boat Another fun mission involving lots of action. This time, Packie and his boys are going to hit a waste disposal plant on Coney Island and steal the money being processed there by the Mafia. As with "Harbouring a Grudge" full health and armour is highly reccomended. From Packie's house get a 4 door car (there are plenty running up and down the street so simply jack one) and drive on over to the waste depot on Coney Island. It is quite a trek so nab a taxi if you happen to see one to half the travelling time. Once you get there Packie wishes the team good luck as they head into the plant so follow them in and take cover behind the nearest object as the mafia offer some resistance to being robbed. Commence firing and ducking behind cover and clear the area. Grenades work well here just be sure not to hit Packie or his team as if one dies it mission over. Proceed through the yard until you reach the warehouse door making sure to nab the first aid kit to the left if you need it. Once you get inside the warehouse duck down as more mafia goons start firing at you and Niko tells Packie he'll go get the money. Before proceeding upstairs however, look above you and nail the two goons up on the stairs while you're covered as the stairs off little cover and then proceed to the stairs, killing mafia goons as you go. On the stairs be careful of the goon just at the office door as he has a shotgun so blow him away and then enter the office. Nab the bag containing the money and then head out the office. Sprint down the stairs and down to the back of the warehouse (the oppposite side to where you came in) and out the back doors to join Packie. Jump into the water and swim over to the nearby boat. Once Packie is in the boat start her up and speed along the ocean and under the bridge to the safe point in Steinway. Once you arrive there, park up in the yellow arrow to successfully complete the mission. Mission Complete! NOTE: Soon after this Packie will call you and tell you get a nice suit and shoes for his next job. NOTE: Be sure to replenish all health, armour and weapons before going to start the mission. NOTE: This mission can only be done between 8 and 6. <Three Leaf Clover> [TLC] Packie says that they are headed for the Bank of Liberty so grab a four door car (there is usually a taxi or similar vehicle coming down the road by Packie's house. But do NOT, I repeat do NOT nick a cop car. You get enough legal heat in this mission without adding to it. Upon arrival at the Bamk of Liberty, Packie runs through the plan one more time before all of you burst into the bank. The following cutscene shows the robbery not going quite to plan and Packie tells you to go get the money from the vault below. Proceed down the stairs and nab the money from inside the vault and return to Packie. This is where the fun begins. For some reason NOOSE objects to the Bank being robbed and have surrounded the place meaning you gotta fight your way out. Take cover behind the main doors and lob about three or four grenades at the police cars to the right which should clear a good enough path for you to run through and follow Packie into the next alley with the guys. In the alley some more cops come from behind so cap them and then concentrate on clearing the alley as Packie won't move till you do. Lob a grenade at the police cruiser at the end of the alley which should hopefully knock down the cops waiting for you there. Now take out your Assault Rifle and blast the cops on the right of the alley (watch out for the one hiding in the alcove near Packie) and then proceed when Packie moves out. That grenade you threw should have taken out a couple of the cops here but there are still enough here to cause you some problems. A couple of grenades will attend to them so once they're gone follow Packie and co. out of the alley and down the road. NOTE: It is not necessary to take out the cops on the road here just keep up with Packie and don't worry about them. After a little while a police helicopter joins the fray and Packie legs it down to the underground. Follow him keeping your assault rifle out as there are a good many cops waiting for you down here. Watch out for the ones hiding just around the corner on the stairs and use free aim to take them out quickly. In the main area of the subway (with the ticket barriers) about 8 cops wait for you. I don't reccomend using grenades here as the likelihood of you hitting Packie or one of the others in the confusion is high so stick to either your assault rifle or shotgun and use the ticket barriers as useful cover. Follow Packie and co. down onto the tracks and stick to the middle as a train may come down the tracks side shortly. I reccomend taking a moment to blast the three cops following you down the tracks but you can out run them. Climb off the tracks when indicated and watch out for yet more NOOSE guys on the stairs. No doubt you're health will need replenishing so instead of heading straight to street level, head right and nab the first aid kit by the lockers. Now follow the stairs and you will come back upto street level. Sprint to the nearby car, get in and drive drive drive! You got a three star wanted level which is tricky but not impossible to lose. I highly reccomend a Pay N' Spray so set a way point and drive down some back alleys to get to it without the cops seeing you and preventing it from working. When you finally shake the heat Packie laments the loss of Michael and asks you to take them all back to the McReary house so return to Packie's house to successfuly complete the mission. Mission Complete! We are now done with Packie's missions but we can now work for Ray who is based at the Italian Restaurant down in the centre of Algonquin. I reccomend getting full health and armour before you do however. --------------------- Ray Boccino --------------------- Ray is a slightly volatile boss to work for and, as you'll quickly see, is very easy to rattle. But he pays well and that's what counts eh? <A Long way to Fall> [AWF] Tasks to Do: Head over to the apartment block Find out from Alonzo where Teddy is Silence Alonzo Fight your way up to Teddy Chase him onto the roof Whack Teddy Some guy based in the apartment complex in Algonquin is giving Ray a hard time and needs to be dealt with. Grab a car/taxi and drive on over to the apartment complex. Our first target is a chap named Alonzo who Ray says knows where Teddy is. He can be found directly ahead of the yellow marker you just parked in. To be sure, consult the picture Ray just sent you but that's where he is usually. Talk to him and he says he has no idea who you mean so get your trusty bat and clarify who you're talking about. Suddenly Alonzo knows exactly who you mean and says that he is probably in his apartment on the fourth floor of the apartment block. Before he gets away plant a couple of bullets in him. This may seem random but by doing this you make sure he can't warn Teddy of your approach which does make things slightly easier for you. Once inside the block, take out your assault rifle and enter the lifts. Unfortunatley they will only go up so far and you need to take the stairs the rest of the way. When the doors open two of Teddy's goons are there so hammer them before they get a chance to draw their guns and then proceed down the corridor carefully as one more goon comes bursting out of the door on your left and another is waiting just around the corner. Take cover behind the wall and look down the corridor this guy was waiting on. There are at least three guys waiting for you at the other end so lob a few grenades down there to clear them out and then proceed with your assault rifle ready in case they didn't all go down as planned. Proceed carefully and go up the stairs backwards with your gun drawn. This will enable you to see the guy standing on the stairs before he sees you so cap him and the continue up the stairs making sure to blow the guy who leaps out at you away. When you reach the next doorway, take cover on the right and lob a couple of grenades down the hallway to dispose of the two goons waiting for you and then proceed down this hallway. If you're a little low on health at this point nip into the door on the right and grab the first aid kit there. At the far end of this corridor will be yet another goon so blast him and enter the next block of stairs (there's another first aid kit here too) and cap the guy near the bottom of the stairs. Now duck down and look up at the stairs. You'll see another goon but this guy has a shotgun and will do some damage so blow him away before proceeding up the stairs. Don't enter the red door yet and go right to find another goon blast him and then return to the red door. Shoot the door to open it and then lob about three grenades inside the room before the door closes again as there are four guys waiting for you inside. Now enter the room and waste anyone still standing (there shouldn't be too many after three grenade blasts). Now proceed through this room and down the next hallway to the kitchen where there is another first-aid kit. Head out the kitchen to trigger a cinema where Teddy appears and runs off to the roof. Follow him back to the stairs and cap the goon waiting for you on the second level. Proceed to the door to the roof and waste the guy waiting for you. Go through the door and along the roof to where Teddy finally has nowhere left to run to. Blast him to successfully complete the mission. Mission Complete! NOTE: At this point Packie calls and asks you to go see his brother Derrick who has fallen on hard times. Gerry McReary will also call and offer you work but we'll stick with Ray for the time being. <Taking in the Trash> [TIT] Tasks to Do: Get to the grabage truck and meet up with Ray's boys Get the first lot of diamonds Get the second lots of diamomnds Lose the attackers and get the stuff to the drop off point Time for a little diamond collection. Head down the street and around the corner to meet up with two of Ray's guys who have a garbage truck for the occasion. Follow your yellow GPS marker to the first collection point and use X to open the truck. Now proceed to the second pick up point and wait for the diamonds to be loaded onto the truck. Time to head to the drop off point but we now got company. It seems the diamonds are sought after property so floor it and get to the drop off point as fast as you can. I know the truck isn't that fast but it can take a surprising amount of fire from the guns so just focus on getting to the drop off point. Once you're there, park the truck in the yellow marker to complete the mission. Mission Complete! <Meltdown> [MD Tasks to Do: Head on over to Castle Gardens when Luca is Chase Luca til he crashes Gun down his backup Find the stall he's in and blast Luca Meet Ray on the bridge in the park and give him the diamonds It seems that Luca has decided to take the ice for himself. Naturally Ray wants Niko to go point out to Luca that this is not acceptable and to teach him a lesson. Having full health and armour does help for this mission also some Assault Rifle or Micro-SMG ammo. When you're ready proceed to the meeting in Castle Gardens where Niko confronts Luca. Rather than make it easy for you and hand over the ice now Luca hares off up the road making a chase necessary. Fortunatley for Niko there just happens to be a banshee parked nearby which he has no hesitation in borrowing. The chase is on. Luca will drive like a crazy son of a bitch to try and lose you but keep on his tail. Remember he has the diamonds so don't try and blow his car up. He will also zip through oncoming traffic and the banshee is very easy to either flip or spin so take it easy round the corners. After a shortwhile he will turn into the park and promptly crash. Now it's time to get him so equip a suitable weapon and note the red dots that just appeared which are a combination of Lucas' guys and other gangs wanting their piece of the action. Gun them all down using the trees for cover and then follow Lucas into the mens toilets where he hides in one of the stalls and locks the door. Look at each of the doors and shoot all of them who have a red bar on them. In one of these is Luca who makes one last plea for his life which Niko is deaf to. Blast him then collect the diamonds. Niko then calls Ray and tells him to come meet on the bridge in the park if he wants the diamonds back so proceed through the park and on to the bridge to wrap up the mission. Mission Complete! NOTE: Before beginning the next mission head on over to the local gun shop and get full armour, the maximum amount of assault rifle ammo, some grenades and also some Micro-SMG ammo. <Museum Piece> [MP] Tasks to Do: Fight your way to the stairs Clear out the ground floor Exit the museum Dispose of the pursuing black cars Lose the Heat Having obtained the diamonds Ray wants you to take them to the museum where a deal will be taking place. You will be working with Johnny again (remember the last deal with him?) so chances are all won't be going to plan. Before heading to the museum pop over to the local gun shop and stock up on armour, grenades and any heavy weapons you can afford (preferably an assault rifle but any will do). Now head on over to the museum marked on your radar and step into the yellow marker to begin the mission. After the cutscene (during which everything does indeed go to pot) you are thrust into the middle of a fire fight. Equip your assault rifle and swivel left. Take out the guy across the balcony and if you can get the one a little further along the same balcony do but its not an easy shot. Now swivel back to your starting position and toss a few grenades down the corridor. These may not kill the guys here but it will blow them out of their hiding places which leaves you free to clean up with your assault rifle. When all seems clear along the first section, proceed carefully along to near the end of the corridor. By this I mean so you can clearly see the end but not actually be there as a couple more guys are waiting for you there. Take cover and then lob a couple of grenades to clear them out. Now proceed along to the stairs and take cover behind the left side. Toss a couple of grenades down at the desk on the ground floor to eliminate a couple of guys there then get to the desk and grab the armour there if you need it. Take cover behind the desk and proceed to blast any further enemies you see (note that it is not necessary to kill all of them but it does make things easier). Once you have got rid of most of the enemies here run across the hallway (make sure to kill the guy hiding in the alcove to the left of the door) and through the door. Quickly take out the guy hiding behindd the boxes here and continue through to the front of the museum. Instead of going outside directly, hide behind the door on its left side, shoot it to make it spring open and toss a couple of grenades at the row of parked cars. This should set them all off and blow at least 3 of them up. Take out your assault rifle and proceed outside where you will be greeted by yet more goons so take them out and take cover behind one of the car wrecks. Take out your sniper rifle and look left at the alley right across the street and you will see a black car with a couple of goons in it. Aim at the driver and take him out. The passenger will then get out so quickly pop him to trigger the police arrival and another black car with goons. Get out your assault rifle and unload some bullets into it and it will explode. Next, grab a car and get the hell out of there. You now have a two star wanted level so start zooming down some back roads and alleys to lose it. Once the heat is off you're done! Mission Complete! After the mission, Niko will call Ray and tell him that Johnny made off with the ice. He is less than impressed. Before going to see him again, make sure you have full health, armour and alot of ammo for weapons you can do drive-bys with (I used a Micro-SMG but any will do). Now head on back to his place and step into the yellow marker. <No Way on the Subway> [NWS] Tasks to Do: Find the Lost Biker Gang Follow them through the city and down onto the subway tracks Eliminate them! Ray is less than happy with the Lost Biker Gang and wants you to go teach them a lesson. Grab a car and head on over to their hide out. Upon arrival they all grab their bikes and take off so quickly grab the spare bike and give chase. Concentrate on following them and they will shortly enter the subway. Follow them and do a u-turn and follow them down the tracks. Now take out your weapon and start blasting the one nearest to you and he will go down relatively quickly. Unfortuantley, you can't kill the other one yet so keep following him down the tracks. Watch out for two subway trains along the way. One on the right and then a second a little further on. Keep on his tail and he will eventually head left so follow him onto the walkway and keep the speed up to clear the ramp. Once you land commence blasting and, after a couple of hits he will fall off his bike so simply run him over to successfully complete the mission. Mission Complete! After the next mission you get a call from Ray who reports he has some good news. He has found who you're looking for which triggers the next mission. <Weekend at Florians> [WAF] Tasks to Do: Go pick up Roman Go find Talbot Follow Talbot's directions to Florian's place Niko will call Roman who insists on accompanying his cousin so grab a four door car (you'll need one in a minute anyway) and go pick up Roman. Now follow the GPS signal over to where Talbot is located. Stop in the marker and watch the scene during which Niko will "persuade" Talbot to come with them. Wait for him to get into the car and follow Talbot's directions. At first he doesn't seem too certain but, after a bit he will get you there. When you arrive, park in the marker to activate the cutscene. After the mission, Ray has one last job for you but we'll leave that one for a moment and turn our attention to the "G" icon on your radar. This represents Gerry McReary, Packie's brother who you will have met during the course of Packie's missions. ------------------------ Gerry McReary ------------------------ He can be found around the back of the McReary's house in Meadows Park. Like Packie, Gerry offers work which pays well but can be challenging on occasions. Having shown a certain mistrust of Niko to begin with, Gerry slowly becomes more impressed with Niko's work and offers him more. <Actions Speak Louder than Words> [ALW] Tasks to Do: Grab the bomb from an alley off Anchon Avenue Plant it on Ancelloti's car Follow him to the meeting in the Northwood factory Detonate the bomb Clean up! Gerry has someone he needs taking care of and Niko seems to be the man for the job. He wants him to go plant a bomb underneath the guy's car, follow him to his hideout and activate it. As I said before, make sure to have enough ammo/ health/armour for this mission. The first part is pretty straight forward. Follow the yellow GPS route over to the alley and pick up the bomb. After the phone conversation during which Gerry tells you to "make sure no-one walks away" follow the blue GPS route to Tony's car and plant the bomb using L1. Now grab a car and park it in the nearby yellow marker and watch the cutscene. After it's over, let Tony get a safe distance away from you and begin following him. It's easier to spook him than you'd think so be sure to stay about two car lengths behind him. Keep on his tail and he will lead you to the factory in Northwood where the meeting is going on. Follow your GPS to the activation point and then get out. Get a safe distance away and then phone Gerry who will activate the bomb and cause some fireworks. Now take out your sniper rifle and take care of any survivors from a nice, safe vantage point. Alternatively, just hop down and start blasting anything that moves with an assault rifle. Either works! Mission Complete! Having completed "Actions Speak Louder than Words" you unlock a number of random characters (including Ivan if you spared him) so check out the appropriate section for those. Packie will also call you and ask you to pop in on Derek, his brother, who has fallen on some hard times. For now though, let's return to Gerry as he has some more work for us. NOTE: Be sure to stock up on Mirco-SMG ammo and armour for this mission. <I need your clothes, your boots, and your motorcycle> [INY] Tasks to Do: Find Frankie using the motorcycle Chase down and kill Frankie Gerry is keen to stir up some more bad blood between the Ancellotis and Albanians but is under too much surveillance to do this himself. He wants Niko to pose as an Albanian and take out Frankie who is a long time member of the Ancellotis. From the McReary house, head down the road and grab the motorbike (the blue dot on your radar) and follow the GPS route to the meeting on Star Junciton. Park in the yellow marker and watch the cut scene during which Frankie takes off. Get after him and make sure to stay on his tail. Whenever you get a chance to shoot at him take it as they are few and far between so pepper him with bullets when you can. After a short time, he will head straight up Frankfort which is a perfect time so commence blasting. After a good few shots like this he will go down so simply run him over with your motorcycle to finish the mission. Mission Completed! This concludes business for Gerry McReary (for now). It is now time to go check on Dereck McReary. He can be found in Acter Park in Alderney so, after stocking up on grenades and shotgun ammo as well as armour, head on over there and step into the yellow marker. -------------------------- Dereck McReary -------------------------- As Packie all ready mention, Dereck has fallen on some tough times and is hold up in Alder Park. Like Niko, it seems he is haunted by his past mistakes and needs help removing them. <Smackdown> [SD] Tasks to Do: Get a police cruiser Locate Bucky's whereabouts on the police computer Drive on over to him Chase him back to his hideout and wipe out him and his gang One of his past associates, Bucky Slingo, is causing Dereck some problems and, like most people in Liberty City, the ideal way to rectify this is to remove him. When the mission starts your first objective is to obtain a police cruiser. If one happens to be driving past then jack it. An easier thing to do is to simply call 911 and ask for the police and a cruiser will come right to you. Jack it then drive a couple of hundred metres round the block to lose the one star wanted level. Now pull over and press L1 to activate the police computer. Click "SEARCH DATABASE" and then "SEARCH BY NAME" and type in Bucky's name. Once you have his location marked on your radar, drive on over there. On the way, Dereck suggests a new course of action. Turn up in your police cruiser and Bucky will run back to his gang so that you can take them all out. Pull up outside the Burger Shot and reverse into the marker so that you're in the right position for the chase that's about to ensue. After the short cinema, hare after Bucky and be sure to keep on his tail as he takes a somewhat random route through back alleys and through fences. Don't shoot him yet as he needs to lead you to his gang first. After a short, yet wild, chase he will stop outside his hideout in Caribo Avenue. Do not pull into the driveway, instead park by the wall opposite the house and use it as cover. Bucky's gang now appear as red dots on your radar. Some are inside but most are inside so pick off those that you can with a few shotgun rounds and then proceed over the road and take cover on the left side of the door. Shoot the door to open it and then toss a few grenades into the house to clear the room of gangsters. Be sure to toss them far into the room to avoid getting hit by the blast yourself. After three have been tossed in, proceed inside and take out any survivors (use the nearby furniture as cover). Bucky is now upstairs but be warned, he does have a shotgun which can do alot of damage. So, equip your shotgun and hide behind the wall of the stair case. Toss a grenade up there to blast Bucky off his feet then quickly run up and blast him with your shotgun before he has a chance to get up and fire back. Now you have got rid of Bucky and his gang but it isn't over yet as all this shooting has attracted some legal attention. Two stars to be exact. Run out the house (don't shoot any cops, it just makes it worse) and grab the nearest vehicle (probably a police cruiser) and drive like a bat out of hell out of there. There is a pay n' spray nearby but if you're in a police cruiser they won't spray it so drive down a few alleys and side roads to lose the heat. Mission Complete! Shortly after completing this mission, you get a call from Brucie who says his friend Stevie will be in touch with some cars he wants collecting. More importantly, Ray gets in touch and says he's got a new apartment for you and Roman in Alderney! =============================================================================== Alderney =============================================================================== Welcome to Alderney! The most prosperous town in the whole of Liberty City and flooded with good business opportunities. As Dereck is still open for business, we'll carry on with him for a bit. NOTE: Be sure to stock up on Mirco-SMG or other suitable drive-by weapon ammo and armour before starting this mission. <Babysitting> [BB] Tasks to Do: Get to Kim's boat and follow it Get rid of the attackers Blow the enemy helicopter away Get Kim to his destination safely Players of Vice City will remember a mission for Diaz where you had to get the drugs back to him before the enemy wiped you out. This mission is kind of similar to that. From your starting point, drive out to open waters where Kim is waiting in his boat. When he sets off, follow him and make sure to stay close by him. After a short while, some enemy boats will appear so, whilst making sure not to lose Kim, start blasting them (automatic targetting makes this easier) and make sure they don't take out Kim or his boat. Shortly, an enemy helicopter appears but fortunatley, Dereck has a rocket launcher on the boat and tells you to blow the chopper away. Stand on the deck and aim the rocket launcher at the chopper and fire at it. If you're having trouble hitting it, aim a little way off the chopper so that it flies into the path of the rocket. Either way, once it blows up finish off the remaining enemy boats and then simply drive with Kim to his destination to successfully complete the mission. Mission Complete! NOTE: Before activating the next mission be sure to get full health, armour and some heavy weaponry (something like an assault rifle will do the trick). <Tunnel of Death> [TOD] Tasks to Do: Collect the truck from Applewhite Street Get to the Booth Tunnel and block it using the truck Take out the police escort Lose the Heat Collect the escape car and drive to the cliffs Take out Aiden This mission is fun! Make sure you have all the above items and then enter the yellow marker. After cutscene, follow the yellow GPS route over to the truck in Applewhite Street and drive it to the Booth Tunnel. Park the truck across both yellow markers to trigger a cutscene during which the police blockade is stopped by your van and a gunfight ensues. There are a couple of points to bear in mind during this gun fight: i Don't use rockets - Though it would be easier to blow the police to hell and back, don't. Not only is Packie among the police but also there is a high risk of blowing Aiden up as well which triggers a mission failure. ii Use wrecks - There are a lot of cops to face in this mission (not as many as in "Three LeaF Clover" but alot nevertheless. A tunnel provides few opportunities for cover but the wrecks of destroyed vehicles are very useful for this purpose. Once all the police have been taken care of, get into the secuity van with Aiden in the back and wait for Packie to join you. You now have a wanted level (somewhat unsurprising after all that shooting) so floor it and barge through the blockade and out the other side of the tunnel. If you're quick this will be sufficient to lose the cops, if not just do a few corners and floor it down a side road or two. Once the heat has been lost you need to get all three of you to the escape car. Follow the yellow GPS signal to the parking lot in Port Tudor and drive you, Packie and Aiden to the cliff edge. Upon arrival, a cut scene ensues and you finally get to kill Aiden. Put a bullet in his head to successfully complete the mission. Mission Complete! This concludes business with Dereck McReary. Remember Florian from "Weekend at Florians" well he now has some work for you so head over to the "BC" icon to begin his first mission. ------------------------------ Bernie Crane aka Florian ------------------------------ Since meeting Florian during "Weekend at Florians", Niko acquires him as a business contact. The campest thing since tents and one of the least enjoyable bosses of the game has some work for you so head over to his place and step into the yellow marker to begin his first mission. <Hating the Haters> [HTH] Tasks to Do: Follow Bernie as he jogs through Middle Park Rub out the homophobe who attacks him Drive Bernie back home Fairly straight forward this one. Grab a car and drive Bernie over to Middle Park where he wants to go for a jog. Follow him as he jogs through the park but not too close (he will tell you if you're too close in which case just let him get a little way ahead of you and then start jogging after him again) until he reaches a bridge where he is attacked by a homophobe. Quickly, sprint after Bernie's attacker and hop on the second moped to begin the chase. When you can, pelt him with gun fire and he will eventually drop. There is a chance that this will attract a one star wanted level. If this happens then simply zoom off quickly to lose the heat. Now return to Bernie and drive him back home. Mission Passed! NOTE: Be sure to get some armour and full health before starting this mission. I imagine you'll have plenty of ammo by now but if not get some of that as well for any weapon apart from a pistol. <Union Drive> [UD] Tasks to Do: Drive Bernie to the Russian messengers Chase and kill the messengers This mission is quite a simple one in terms of what you have to do but a pain in the ass in terms of doing it. Grab a fast car (there is a sports car parked just down the road) and drive on over to the meeting point. Pretty soon all does not go to plan and a car chase ensues. Get back to your car and floor it after them. The idea is to shoot them whilst driving but that is hard as they break every road safety reg in the manual and even send other cars careering into you so the first priority is staying on their tail. The trick is to stay far enough away so that you can see what is coming but not so far away that you lose them. After a period of wild chasing they will crash which present the perfect opportunity for you to go in there and clean up with whatever heavy weaponry you have. Do so. After all are dead, Bernie wants to go home so take him back to his apartment to successfully complete the mission. Mission Complete! NOTE: Dimitri now rings and offers Niko a cut of some profits of some business he has going down. Naturally, Niko being Niko, he tells him exactly what he can do with it. Brucie has no more work for the moment so let us now turn our attention to Ray and his last mission. Be sure to have full health/armour, some grenades and assault rifle ammo before you start. ------------------------- Ray Boccino ------------------------- <Late Checkout> [LC] Tasks to Do: Get to the penthouse of the Majestic Hotel Kill Isaac, his bodyguards and anyone else who gets in the way Escape the Hotel Lose the Heat There are two ways to do this particular mission. The fun way or the easy way. Let's assume you are a daring individual and love a good gun fight. ______________ | | | The Fun Way | |______________| From Ray's hideout, follow your GPS to the Majestic hotel and enter the hotel to trigger a cutscene. Aftet that's done, get in the elevator and be ready for a gunfight when the doors open. When you arrive on the 30th floor, immediatley get out of the elevator and take cover behind the wall to the right. Equip some grenades and lob them around the corner to knock down most of the guards and kill a few. Now take out your assault rifle and use free aim to eliminate those closest to you and then auto-aim to dispose of the others posted along the corridor. Proceed with caution in case any are left and get to the stairs. Climb up the stairs to the next floor where two of the three required targets are holed up. Lob some grenades into the room and then enter blasting anything that moves. The target in question is located in the kitchen located in the back of the room so carefully approach the door, take cover and lob two grenades in. One down, two to go! Turn around and go up the stairs to the bedroom where Isaac is with his girl. Gun them both down and then proceed up the stairs to the roof. Don't go right to the top however, just far enough so that you can see the roof. At the back is a red gas cannister. Get out either a sniper rifle or assault rifle and blast it. The explosion will send the guards on the roof flying and also eliminate the final target. If, as occasionaly happens the target only gets knocked over then simply pump a few rifle rounds into him. Now all the targets are eliminated you need to escape the hotel and lose the heat. The easiest way of escaping is the cleaning lift. On the roof near the water cannisters is a cleaning lift. Press L1 to get onto it and then use L3 to ride it down to the ground. Now grab a car and zoom out of there to lose your two star wanted level. Mission Complete! However, some people prefer to do things the easy way with minimum hassle. If this is the way you like to do things then here is the easy way: __________ | | | Easy Way | |__________| Grab a car and head for the Majestic Hotel and inside to trigger the cutscene. Instead of going up in the lift, exit the hotel and go round the back to find the cleaning lift. Ride this upto the roof and blow the guards waiting for you to hell using the red gas cannisters. Now go into the penthouse and lob a couple of grenades down the stairs to get rid of any waiting guards. Proceed into the kitchen and kill both guards and diamond dealer number 1. Now go up the stairs into the bedroom and waste Isaac. Now use the cleaning lift to go down to street level and speed out of there to lose the heat. Mission Complete! Whichever way you choose to do it, the mission concludes business dealings with Ray. After completing this mission you will get a text message from Ray asking you to meet him and Phil Bell down at Phil's truck depot in Normandy. Shortly following this you will get a call from Bernie asking you to go meet him at Pier 45. As Bernie is the easiest to do we'll attend to him first so grab some Assault Rifle ammo and armour before heading to the "BC" icon on your radar that has appeared once more. ------------------------ Bernie ------------------------ <Buoys Ahoy> [BA] Bernie wants to have some "fun" and suggest a picnic. Given that a) this is GTA and b) Niko Bellic you can safely assume that it will be anything but fun. Bernie has a boat for the occasion so get into it and drive out to Bernie's chosen spot. When you get there, a cutscene will start during which Dimitri's men show up. When you regain control, speed after them. Be warned, this boat handles like crap and is very easy to either tip or crash both of which result in mission failure. As is common in chases, concentrate on keeping up with your targets and a chance to wipe them out will present itself. Besides which it is hard to get close enough to shoot them because their boat can go considerably faster than yours. After a little while, they will abandon their boat and proceed on foot. Follow them and use the trees for cover whilst annihiliating them. Once they're all down, return to Bernie to successfully complete the mission. Mission Complete! Shortly after completing "Buoys Ahoy", Bernie will get in touch again and say that him and Bryce have a present for you to collect as a thankyou for your help. This triggers the following mission: <Bryce's Infernus> [BI] Grab a car and head on over to the parking lot behind Bernie's apartment (marked as a "BC" icon on your radar) and get in the Infernus parked here. Now simply drive this shiny new car over to any of your safehouses and park it in the yellow "RESERVED" parking space to successfully complete the mission. Mission Complete! We are now done with Bernie. You will now have recieved a phone call from Francis who asks to see you urgently (assuming you have successfully completed "Lure", "Tunnel of Death" and "I need your clothes, your boots and your motorcycle" that is. Once all these have been complete, head on over to the "FM" icon on your radar to trigger this dramatic mission. <Blood Brothers> [BB] After the cutscene, Francis tells you to go to the roof of a building over looking Meadows Park by using the cleaning lift. Head on over there and use the nearby cleaning lift to get to the roof. Get out your sniper rifle and look down at the park to see Francis and Derek chatting. You must now choose one McReary brother to wipe out. See the appropriate section for more details on this choice. Once one has been wiped out, take the lift back down to street level and zoom out of the area. Once you are clear, the mission is successfully completed and Niko phones the surviving McReary brother. Mission Complete!
