Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars/Security Cameras

From GameWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

There are 100 security cameras all over Liberty City. The dealer Liam talks about them in the main mission Tricks of the Triad. After you complete the main mission Natural Burn Killer, you can actually destroy them as you need Molotov or grenades to do so. As it happens with security cameras, they are in important positions guarding an area (more or less). Usually they are mounted on a roof and they will follow your movements. During your missions you will encounter a few of them. Destroying them counts towards 100%.

If you run out of Molotov, just go to the nearest gas station and make a few more, it's cheaper than buying them from Ammunation and easier to get to. You can get 10 to 15 Molotovs at a gas station for 200 while Ammunation (except when they have a sale on Molotov) will only get you 8 for 300, minus the mini game of course.

Thankfully destroying cameras with Molotov does not cause you to get a wanted rating, even if you are sitting next to a cop.

The locations are described as well as possible. Often the map is taken as reference. Also the area in which the camera is will be noted. If you don't know the names, don't worry, just hovering over it in the GPS map will show it on the upper screen in the lower right corner. That way you should always be able to tell if you are in the correct area at least.

This list is a work in progress and in no particular order (yet). A map is also being made.

This map contains all security camera's. The exact location is where the base of the camera is. Click it and then click it again on the following page to see the highest resolution of this image.

Grand Theft Auto Chinatown Wars.Combined Map.png


  1. Steinway, northwest area. There are three pools there on the map, close to the water front and just north of the bridge to charge island. Go to the middle pools east border and you should see it on the building to the east of you. There also is a drug dealer on top of that building, can't miss it.
  2. Francis Intl Airport, south area. South of the terminal and west of the runways you will find a pier with three short jetties going to the west and one long to the west. Where the northernmost jetty is, you find a drug dealer and just north of that is a wall encompassing some tanks. There are two entrances to that area, as you can see on the map, the line is broken. The southern of the two entrances has the camera on the guard hut.
  3. Purgatory. From the southwest corner of middle park, go one block south then look at the block to the southwest. On the map it looks solid except an indentation at the north. Go to that indentation and you will find the camera on a guard house there.
  4. Star Junction. From the southwest corner of middle park, skip the block south of that corner and look closely at the next block. There is an alley here that goes north south and is a bit wider at the north end. In here you also find a drug dealer. The camera is found at the north end on a small guard house, a few steps into the alley.
  5. Meadow Park. Go to the Meadow Park area, outside the park on the east side. There are two mansions in the northern area of the park. The western of the two has this camera on an extrusion of the south facing wall. A bit to the west inside the park is a dealer.
  6. Meadow Park. Look at the northeast part of the park on the map where you see a large square and small squares arranged around it in a circle. To the west are three separate squares, not part of the circle. Just north of eastern square of these three squares you can find this camera. Once you are there you will see an elevated large ring, the camera sits on that ring.
  7. Steinway, north shore. On the map, west of the bridge that goes north, you can see multiple docks going north. The western most has an extension on the western side of it. Where that dock meets the mainland in the south, is this camera. There is a wall there on the map (thin white line) and the camera sits on top of it.
  8. Castle Garden City, Southwest Algonquin. Just to the northeast of Happiness Island you can see four docks pointing to the west and two pointing north. The western one of the two pointing north has this camera at its north end. There is a ramp there and the camera sits on a pillar just below that ramp.
  9. Lower Easton. If you have the Lower Easton safe house already (through the story) this camera is in the block that is directly northwest of there. To find it another way, locate the large road going south next to middle park, this block is to the east of that road. Now look for the road that goes west off Colony island. Where those two roads cross, go one block south and the block is to the southeast of this intersection. Go to the north side of this block, you can see a thin white line on the map there. The camera is on one of those parking guard houses. A drug dealer is in that same block in the middle of the alley here as well.
  10. Lower Easton. In the block just south of the last camera, north side of it. There is a fence and behind it a dirt lot. The camera is right there on one of those low buildings. Also a rampage skull is in that lot.
  11. Chinatown. One block east of the last camera. It's the same block where the save house will be once you unlocked it during the main story missions. The camera is on the east facing outer wall of the block, in the south area of it.
  12. East Island City, Chan's garage. By the time you get to destroy cameras you should have been called to Chan's garage, if not play a couple more missions and follow the C blip. Otherwise follow the road from the bridge to charge island to the east, take the second right (south) and the next one left (east). Just south of you is the block where the garage is. you can enter through the east side of this block. Once you are behind the building (south facing wall) You can see it installed up on the roof in the middle of the lighter colored building above the garage. This is just a bit west of the chevrons to enter Chan's building.
  13. North Holland, Northwest Algonquin. If you follow the road that’s just north of middle park to the west until you hit the last road before the shore, there is a block shaped like a mirrored L to your northeast. On the map you can see there are three buildings on the south edge of that block. The middle one has on the north side a dealer. This camera is on the north facing side of the eastern most of these buildings. You can find it close to the fence to the west, where a green dumpster is you can search.
  14. Beechwood City, south east. Locate the Outlook circle on the map (north east to outlook park in Broker). Now from the circle head directly east. At the corner where the last road goes north, before the road you are on curves south, you will find this camera. Just look to the northeast, it’s on the corner of that building.
  15. Firefly Projects, east. On the map you can see in the lower right corner there is one large block that stands out into the water.

  18. Northwood. Go to the northernmost road in Algonquin and there to the eastern area. North of that road, look at the map where there are some fences and an opening in between them, the fences both going towards the north a bit as well. Go there then walk to the east a bit. There on the low buildings you will find the camera, next to the two yellow dumpsters.
  19. East Holland. Go to the north eastern corner of middle park. From this intersection go east one block, then go north until the next road goes east. The camera is on top of the low building in the southeast corner of that intersection, can’t miss it. Just to the east of it is a drug dealer.

In that block there, the north east corner, is a small open space with three benches. South of that space are trees and behind them a low building. The camera is on top of that building. You need to be aligned perfectly south with the view to see it, it's pretty well hidden.
  89. The Meat Quarter. Just east of the safe house ou can buy in the meat quarter and just north of the gas station there is a building that is tall and narrow on the map. In the middle of its western side is an entrance and above it is the camera.
