Grand Theft Auto IV/Story Walkthrough
This guide will help you through the story of Grand Theft Auto IV. The game has a lot of advancements over previous versions, mostly in helping you find your way and less running around in some situations. Keep an eye out at for what the game offers on advice as it will help you greatly to get into the game fast.
The Cousins Bellic
Our story begins aboard the Platypus, a merchant navy vessel arriving portside in Liberty City, gateway to the "land of opportunity." One of the crew is a Serbian national named Niko Bellic, a man haunted by war memories and running from past mistakes. Niko is a realist, but like many immigrants, he dreams of making big in America. His plan is to meet up with his successful cousin, Roman.
Unfortunately, Roman Bellic has overstated his success just a bit. When he finally arrives at the East Hook docks, his sports car turns out to be a city taxi cab...and he's a little too "happy" to drive. Maybe Niko had better take the wheel.
This is a simple tutorial mission. You start out near the East Hook docks at the wheel of Roman's cab, Roman sits in the passenger seat. Onscreen instructions guide you through the basics of driving a vehicle and using the radar map. Your goal is to simply follow the yellow line plotted by your GPS system to reach Roman's apartment in Hove Beach, indicated on the map by the yellow blip. Feel free to cruise the city streets a bit and get comfortable with the driving controls. (Roman keeps you entertained with inebriated banter.) But note Roman's comment about the city's bridge access being cut off because of terrorists threats. When you arrive at Roman's place, drive into the yellow marker to complete the mission and trigger the next scene.
The Hove Beach district is an enclave of struggling Eastern European immigrants, and Roman Bellic's "mansion," like his car, is somewhat underwhelming. As Niko puts it, "Immigrants here do not make it very far from the boats they come in on." Roman rushes off to get his taxi cab back to the cab office and tells Niko to meet him there.
As Roman exits, he gets a nasty phone call from somebody named Vlad...
Roman's apartment is your first safehouse. If you want to save your game here, approach the bed and press the button indicated onscreen to trigger the save sequence. Niko takes a nap, advancing the games time by 6 hours, and the progress is saved in the slot you select. Later in the game, you can arrannge appointments with characters. You can use the bed to pass time more quickly while you wait, just don't be sleeping during the appointment hour!
It's Your Call
You get to Roman's business. Roman introduces Mallorie and Vlad. Roman owes Vlad a lot of money and has a not so sunny way of life.
Get into Roman's car, then drive to hardware store as the GPS indicates. Roman wants to play on a back room game. Once you delivered him you get your first cell phone. On the bottom left it indicates that a new person has been added, always watch for these as that means new opportunities.
Now sit in the car and wait, looking around you. Roman calls in between. After the short call, the loan sharks will arrive from the east, parking on the opposite side of the road in a white vehicle. They are two guys that will come across the street and you will hear Niko say something to that end.
Call Roman on the cell phone, the game will tell you what to press in what order to do so. Roman comes sprinting out and into your car. Now floor it back to the shop. You got to park on the eastern side of it, not drive into the shop. Make sure you don't bump into the other guys and get distance between you so they lose you.
When you arrive at the shop, you are done.
Now you can customize your cell phone, different ringtones etc if you feel like it.
Return to your home and save. By the time you arrive back there, Roman will send you an SMS. You can see waiting messages by the envelope on the bottom left of the radar. Open the cell phone and read it. He needs help. So back to his shop.
Go to the R Blip and stand in the arrow.
Three's a Crowd
Roman is being hassled by two guys and Niko takes care of it. Mallorie calls, she needs a lift.
Take Roman's car and drive down to the station, park at the arrow.
Mallorie and her friend get in. Now drive to Michelle's apartment. There you drop them off and call Roman.
Get some new clothes is the mission now. Drive to the clothes shop. Inside you can try out all the clothes you see. Just walk up to them and press the button indicated. Buy some jeans, that should be enough for Michelle.
Outside you call Roman automatically.
After waiting for a minute or so, Michelle calls you. Now you have her as a symbol on the radar too.
Now return to the apartment and save. You can also change your clothes you own in the apartment, just stand into the arrow and press the button it indicates.
You can now date Michelle by going to the M with a heart blip on the radar. This is not needed for the main story but can be helpful, for now ignore her.
Roman calls you, he is in trouble again.
Go to Romans location. He is in a fenced in sports area. Just walk up to him and his two "friends" and wait for the cut scene. Now you learn how to fight. Block, or tap block before they swing and you should get three fast punches in. After that, you can kick them on the ground. Take down both and the third one runs away. Get into Roman's car and follow him. He will always take the same route, and always go to the same place, so relax and just keep behind him in a good distance, you won’t over take him really. Once he arrives he gets out of the car and up some stairs. Follow him up and around the building to the hole he hides out in. Now you learn how to disarm. Tap the block when he swings, then hit one of the punch buttons. Now you got his knife. Defeat him now. Once he is down, go back to Roman's car and get in. Bring him back to the shop.
Vlad is harassing Mallorie again. He wants money again and while he waits, some favors. This will be interesting. Roman gets a call, you got to pick up someone. Get into Roman's car. Now drive and pickup Jermaine, he lives just a bit north of Michelle's. Park in the arrow there, then drive him to Mastersons St. When you pull in, he notices that the door is open. Cops arrive from all directions and you have a fight on your hands. Drive straight then curve to the right, that’s your best way out. Now all you need to do is get out of the flashing circle on your radar without being seen by another cop. Easier said than done. Drive around, especially in streets where there is lots of corners and the streets are narrow and you would be able to shake them and escape the circle. After a bit, your wanted level drops and you can drop Jermaine off at the last location.
You call Roman to let him know you are done.
A bit later Vlad calls you, he has a job.
Go on a date with Michelle now, it is required to advance the story. But only this one first date is, no other dates are required.
Michelle has all new stuff. She throws out stuff when she does not like them, OCD maybe? Let’s go to the funfair, I mean carnival. You drive with her across city to find out it is closed. You can drive with the car over to it, or simply walk up the ramp in front of you and to the left to reach it. Go into the bowling alley and walk to the desk. Now you need a lane. Stand in the arrow at free lane. Now bowl away.
When the game is over go back to the car and then drive her home. From now on she will call you on occasion for dates. You can call her back to cancel or try to arrange a new one once in a while.
Go to the V blip and stand in the arrow.
Bull in a China Shop
You get a bat and the mission to teach a guy that has a china shop a lesson. Outside you can hail a cab that takes you there, or you grab a car and drive there yourself. Stand into the arrow. The guy does not want to pay and not let you in. Lets break some stuff. A bit to the west is a garbage area with a few bricks (green blip) go over there and pick one up, then return. Now throw it through one of the two windows (not the door) like the game tells you to. Once a window is crashed, he comes out and pays up.
Grab a car and return to Vlad, park in the arrow. With Vlad having his money he is happy.
Go to the house across the street and save.
After saving you get an SMS from Vlad. Read it and you get the V blip again. Go and stand in the arrow at the V blip.
Hung Out to Dry
Contractor: Vlad Reward: $100
Another customer does not pay up. Get a car and drive to your destination, the laundry mat. As you enter the store the owner runs away. Chase him and you see him pull away in a van just when you exit the back door. Grab one of the cars and chase him down. Now you have to ram the guy a few times hard to get him to give up. Just keep ramming him until he stops and you see a cut scene. With that you have completed your mission.
You call Vlad that you have done your job.
Go again to the V blip and step into the arrow.
Vlad wants to go for a walk. His shiny personality comes out really nice. You walk to his car and he snorts some coke. The job is to grab a car at a train station. and in the process you learn how to use the train. Walk down the block to the station, get inside and walk all the way up to the platform. Stand in the arrow next to the tracks and wait for the train to come in. When it stops, get in. You can skip to your destination quickly or enjoy some nice cinematic views of your journey. When you arrive, go down the stairs. Walk over to the silver Blista and you see a guy polishing the hood. You can stun punch him like the game says, or simply get into the car and drive off. When you are away from them around a few corners, stop and wait for Vlad’s call. He will tell you to wash the car. The carwash will be your new destination. Once it is clean, you get the lockup as a new destination, where you have to drop off this car. Park the car in the indicated garage and stop. You will get out automatically and you are done.
Niko calls Vlad and tells him about his success.
Grab a car and return to the safe house and save.
Now go across the street again and step into the V blip's arrow.
Ivan the Not So Terrible
Vlad tells you Ivan will rob Roman. The plan is to kill Ivan and make it look like a botched robbery. Take a car and drive towards Roman's shop. Ivan will make his escape just as you get close. Now just follow him, do not try to take over, just follow him at a safe speed and distance. He will go to a construction site. Climb up the ladder and the second ladder, then go up the stairs to the roof. Here you got to go to the crane, climb up on it and then run and jump to the next roof. You got to repeat that a couple of times, until he falls off a walk way and clings with his fingers to it.
Now you have two choices once you stand over him, stand on his hands and kill him or help him up. This moral decision has only one influence over your later gameplay. If you kill him, nothing bad happens. If you let him live, you could meet him later as a Random Character in Alderney.
You call Vlad now to report to him you are done.
On the west side are some fire stairs to get down from this roof. On the lower roof there is a ladder on the south side you can go down to ground level.
Return to the safe house and save.
Michelle will call you about now, time for a date. Get to her within a game hour and pick her up. One game hour is roughly one minute, so the time is ticking. Take her somewhere she would enjoy. I am not going to go on about dating more than this, as this deserves its own guide. After you are back from a date, go and save.
Now go to the R blip and step into the arrow at Roman's shop.
Roman wants’ you to pick up Little Jacob. Get into a car, then drive over to the park gate where Little Jacob hangs out. Stop, honk and let him get in. Now drive over to Schottler. Jacob gives you a gun and talks a lot of stuff I really have no idea what exactly it is he is saying. But you get the idea he has some troubles and wants you to watch his back. At the location, get out of the car. Walk to the spot on the radar, up the stairs to your right and stand in the arrow. Crouch down for more accuracy and to not be seen. Some guys come up and want to teach Jacob a lesson. Shoot them down, at the games directions. There are three on the ground, and once those are dead, another one will come out on the roof to your left. Collect their weapons and money (red glows for weapons and green for money) so you got some reserve for future battles. Now get back into the car and take Little Jacob to the cafe. With him being there, you are done.
Niko calls Roman back.
Now just drive around the block and after a bit Little Jacob calls you. He has a job.
Go to the LJ blip and park in the arrow.
Contractor: Little Jacob
I am relieved, Niko has about as much a clue what LJ says as I do. Get into a car and drive to an apartment block in Willis. Park in the arrow. Now drive to the left into the alley and park in the next arrow. Three drug dealers come out of the building to your left and make a run for it. Simply use your car, follow them, and drive over them once. Now get out and shoot them. They should be already in bad shape and this should make it easy. With all three dead, get back in the car and go pick up LJ. Now drive him over to the town house in Meadows Park. This house has a pigeon sitting on its chimney.
Get out of the car and up to the door. LJ kicks in the door, time for your first big fire fight. Press against the wall, aim for the guys head then kill him around the corner. Now go to the window, do the same, and kill the guy with the shot gun. Go into the house and duck, hiding behind the couch. Shoot the remaining two enemies. Go over to the table, picking up guns and the health kit. Now exit the house and get back in the car.
Bring LJ back to the Homebrew Cafe and you are done.
Go to the safe house and save.
Go to the R blip and step into the arrow.
Roman is drunk and heartbroken, as Vlad appears to have something with Mallorie. Get into a car and go with Roman to the Comrades bar. Park in the arrow and watch the cut scene. Niko tells Vlad to stay away from Mallorie. He does not like it and makes a run for it. Kill the two guys in the bar first, then go after him through the back door. Go straight again and he will run with a car. Get into the car out front with Roman in it and then follow Vlad’s car. Just follow, he will drive to the docks. He will crash the car there. Get out and follow him. After the cut scene, kill him. Now you hear that Niko is on a mission of revenge, Vlad was one of the targets of his wrath. Watch as he dumps the body.
After this, Roman will call you, he needs help, again.
Drive to the R blip on the radar and park in the arrow.
Crime and Punishment
Roman hides in a dumpster, he thinks he is being followed. He isn't paranoid, a guy shows up with an AK47 and takes Niko and Roman away. Niko wakes up in a cellar. A guy with a hacksaw wants to have some answers. The boss shows up and clears up a little. He wants you to take care of some business. You need to steal some TVs from a van. But you need a police car for this.
Outside run north and you will see a police car coming down the road. It will stop at a house and the cop runs to the house. Grab this car, then head north as Niko calls Dimitri. Now you have to find the TVs in one of the vans. Stop each van, by driving close to it with the siren on. Once it stops and the game tells you to get out and walk close to the van. The game will randomly chose one of them, it might be the first you stop or the last one, you can never really tell. Worst case you have to hunt down all of them, but be quick as they will arrive at their location after a while and the mission fails.
Once you got the right one, there is a guy with a gun. Shoot him and get in the van. Now you got a two star rating. Lose the cops and the rating. Once done, you should bring it to the lockup in the north. With the car in lockup you are done.
You get Mikhail Faustin added to your phonebook now.
Roman calls you a bit later. Go to the F blip on the radar and park in the arrow. You can save on the way, as you pass the safe house.
Do you Have Protection?
Faustin opens the door for you. You get to witness a conversation between Mikhail and Dimitri. They are both addicts, and there is something to do. Outside get into the car and drive to the sex shop on Delaware Avenue. Get out of the car and enter the shop. Inside you get to intimidate by gun. Simply aim it at the first guy to your right. Now let’s change it a little. Aim for the guy on the left of him, and while locked on, aim down to his leg. Shoot him once in the leg and he falls down. The owner pays up, this part is done. Leave the shop and get into the car. Drive to the gun shop indicated on the radar.
The entrance is in a back alley. Inside go to the right hand wall and buy a micro SMG. Good weapon for now and although it says that it costs 1200, you get this one for free. Go back out and Dimitri tells you to drive back to Mikhail Faustin's house.
With Dimitri delivered you are done. Go to the safe house and save the game.
Now head for the F blip in the north and step into the arrow.
A very weird stage performance takes place, and then you get to sit down to have a discussion with Mikhail and Dimitri. There is police trouble. Mikhail wants you to kill a buyer that he suspects is a rat. Drive to the guys location, he is in a train station to the north on another island. Get on foot and go to the platform there. Now the second guys with him has an SMG. Kill him first, collect the weapon and then follow the guy across the tracks. Be careful of the trains, to not get hit. If you can shoot him as he walks down the stairs on the other side, this makes the mission a lot easier and shorter. Otherwise follow him down the stairs. He gets into a sports car and drives away. Good hint here, shoot one or more of his tires. Now get into a car and follow him. You can hit a button to pop out the window and then shoot at him, straight ahead of you. Get behind him and shoot a few times. It shouldn’t be hard to kill him that way. Once he is dead you call Dimitri and report back in.
Return to the safe house and save the game.
Go to the R blip and step into the arrow.
Roman wants you to go online. Grab a car and drive to the internet cafe called [email protected] (read the @ as at and you, well you get the idea). Inside walk to the counter and she tells you to use a terminal. Walk to a computer and use it. Now read your email. Reply with a positive response to activate your email account. After this, you are online and can leave the cafe. Outside get into the car and you call Roman to tell him you are done.
You also get Brucie as a contact in your cell phone.
Wait a bit and Roman calls you back. He tells you Brucie has something for you. Go back in and check your emails. Read the email from Brucie Kibbutz and reply positive to him. He will ask you to get a car for him, and you can do it anytime you wish.
Go and save now.
Go south to the F blip and stand into the arrow.
No Love Lost
Mikhail and his wife have a row. Dimitri is not around. He shows you his daughter's picture. She is meeting with her boyfriend on Firefly Island. Go there. Grab a car and drive to the west where your target is. A biker talks to Mikhail's daughter. He drives off on his bike. Grab the bike in front of you and follow him. You can try and shoot him down now. It might take a lot of bullets to do it though, but it is doable. If you do not get him soon and you followed him for a while, three more bikes turn up. You drive into a park very soon and they get off the bikes and attack you. Now get off the bike and kill them all. You call Mikhail Faustin to tell him the good news.
Go to the LJ blip on your radar and step into the arrow.
Contractor: Little Jacob
Jacobs security introduces himself. Now they have a problem with some dealers in South Bohan. You are to clean that up. Get a car and drive down there. A dealer is just out of product. Now follow him. He will go through alleys, through a building, over a fence and into an apartment block. In there, he will climb to almost the top of it, then turn off to an apartment. He is in the right one with three other guys. If you have a shotgun, this is a good moment for it. Close range, three shots and the problem is solved.
Niko call LJ to let him know the good news.
Return to the safe house, save the game.
Go to the F blip on the radar to the south.
Rigged to Blow
Mikhails wife is home and she talks to you about her life. Niko also reveals a bit about his past. Mikhail shows up with Dimitri. Someone owes him money. You are to pick up a truck and then call him. You are to deliver the truck to a garage, it is full with explosives. What would a GTA game be without a good old car bomb. Drive careful, you don’t want it to blow up early. Once you parked it, you have to press a button to arm it. Niko gets out on his own and blows it to pieces. Now get away from the scene and you are done.
Niko calls Faustin to report back.
Now you get a call from Roman and an SMS from Dimitri.
Go to the DR blip in the south and park in the arrow.
The Master and the Molotov
You are meeting Dimitri sitting on a bench. Mikhail Faustin has to die. The guy you killed earlier was someone important's son. To redeem yourself, you have to be the one to kill Mikhail. Go to his club and park in the arrow. You watch Faustin arrive. You get a message from Dimitri. He left some body armor on the east side of the block the club is in. Grab it, you will need it. The light blue will indicate on the right side of your radar how much is left of it.
Now enter the club and watch the cut scene. Now it gets a bit harder. Kill the two guys next to you, then the guys across the room behind the bar. The door to the right of the bar is where Mikhail is fleeing through, Get as fast as you can over there. Turn right, there is a guy around the corner to the left just on the stage. Go straight and up the stairs kill the next guy that comes down the stairs. Go through the door and kill the three guys to your right, that hug the left wall. There is another guy up above you to your right, shooting down. If you are quick though he won’t matter. Go to the stairs where those guys are, climb up the stairs there to the top and up to the roof. There is your target. Get close and assassinate him. You call Dimitri, and the mission is over.
Now there are 200 pigeons or "flying rats" in liberty city. One is just below you, behind the sign of the club. Just look down the window to your south and you can see it slightly yellow glowing. You can shoot it to take it out. That’s one down, 199 to go. This is not needed for the story, but a mandatory mission to get 100%. I just mention them if you come across them close by.
Go to your safe house, save the game.
Now go to the B on the map and step into the arrow.
Search and Delete
You meet Brucie again. First you need a cop car. There is one parked at the police station, north of the safe house on the western side. Very close and always available. Once you are in Brucie calls you. You have to call up the computer and search for Lyle Rivas. The computer finds him and then you can mark him on your map. Now go to the location marked. It is inside a building. Rivas will make a run for it. Exit the building, get into the cop car, then chase him down. At first you won't be able to catch up. Watch out at the airport when driving north, he will bump a truck that will lose the barrels in the back of the box. On the bridge to Bohan, he will do the the same thing with a truck loaded with timer, drive to the left of it when that happens. After you arrive in Bohan, he will slow down. Now bump his car often enough and he exits the car. Now kill him (drive over him or any other way). Call Brucie to let him know you did your job.
Go towards the B blip on the radar. You get a call from Dimitri. A bit later you get one from Little Jacob. You are to meet him in a warehouse and LJ will help you. You get into the warehouse and meet a guy from the old country. They want you dead. Now a big firefight happens. Keep in hiding and kill what you see. Shoot the people left and right on the upper levels. Make your way forward and Dimitri and Bulgari escape. Now the cops arrive and you have more problems. Run outside and get in the car to the right. Drive off with LJ and loose the heat. Once you are clear, drive him back to the cafe.
Call Roman. He wants you to meet him in an alley in the north. Go there and step into the arrow. They have a lot of problems. Go back to the apartment. As you get closer you see it is burning. Lost cause. Now head for the depot. It is on fire too. There is nothing left here, go to Bohan in the north. Drive into the yellow arrow and you have a new safe house. Go back in and save the game once you are done.
You get two messages. One from Brucie, telling you to check the Police computers for Vigilante work next time you are in a cop car. The other is from LJ, congratulating you on your driving skills.
You get a call from Dimitri, threatening you that he will burn you out of every hiding hole.
Now head over to the M blip on the radar and step into the arrow.
Escuela of the Streets
You get to meet Manny Escuela. He wants you to get the dealers off the streets. Get into a car and let him hop in. Drive to the target and park behind the car there. Manny talks your ear off while you follow the guy at a good distance. Don't get closer than three car lengths. Keep a good distance and just follow him around the city. He stops at a warehouse in South Bohan. Park behind him and he gets out and goes into the warehouse. Manny wants you to go in and clean up. You won’t be able to enter the door, it is locked. Instead go to the alley that shows on the map, south of that building. There is a staircase leading on to the building in the south. From there on its eastern side you can climb on top of the real building you want to go. In the north eastern corner is the window you can get through. On the western side where the window is, lays an MP5 on the roof, in case you need a different gun. Go to the window. You can see a guy to the north east there. Another is hiding behind a pillar to the northwest. You can shoot at least the one from up here. Drop down and kill the guy close by, he has a shotgun. Now hide behind the pillar and shoot out the two guys on the left and the two on the right. Only three left. Two are on the far side, where the main door is. One is on the left behind all those boxes, the other in front of the door. Get closer and take the guy on the left first. Let him come out to shoot and at that moment attack. Now go around the corner for the second. The last one is on the far right wall. Pass the forklift on the west and look to your right. You should be able to see him from here and take him down quickly. Go to the main door, lock on to the doors lock and shoot it out to exit. Manny is outside with the camera man and has his moment. You are done here now.
Instead of going in through the alley, you can also shoot the locked door to enter the building. First shoot everybody in sight. Go in, take cover and go to the right. Shoot the one on the elevated platform and continue to sweep the room in a counter clockwise direction.
Little Jacob will call you, he is now your friend and you can do similar things like with Roman.
Go to the safe house, save then go again to the M blip on the radar.
Another one of Manny's little video shows is going on. He wants you to clean out another dealer area. Get in a car and go to the drug dealers area. Get close and kill the three that stand at the garage. Ignore the car that drives away. Once all three that stand around the garage are dead, make for the car. If you drive off with them alive, you fail the mission. At this time the guy in the car most likely will pass you on the east side. Just follow him for a while and the guy will jump out of the car and try to make it away on foot. Go after him and kill him now. You can also kill him in the car, but that is harder and you will in all probabilty attract cop attention. With all dead Manny is happy.
If you get a wanted rating at the killings at the beginning it is very hard to finish this one. So congrats if you do it, but it is a better idea to check for cop cars before attacking the first dealers.
Once done, return to your safe house and save the game.
Mallorie calls. She has a new client. Go to the E on the map and meet Elizabeta.
Luck of the Irish
You have to go to a deal they are not sure about. Grab a car and go to the target. The arrow is on a door of a building. Enter it then climb the stairs inside to the top. Right on front of you is a rifle, pick it up. Go to the vantage point in the northwest corner of the roof. Now watch the meet closely.
Keep the aim on the guy in the middle facing you. Kill him when he takes out a gun. Now kill the guys closest to you first, and make your way to the back. Once all are dead, another batch arrives, kill them too, starting with the most far away one. Once they are all dead, Patrick leaves. You call Elizabeta to let her know and the mission is over.
Save in the safe house then go again to the E on the map.
Blow your Cover
Reward: $2000 and Algonquin unlocked
A party is going on. You meet Johnny the guy with the heroin. Also Playboy X makes an entrance. Another deal is going down you have to look over. Get into a car with Playboy X. Now drive over to the building in Schottler. Inside to the right in the back of the entrance level is a shotgun you can grab. Follow Playboy X to the third floor. After the cut scene you got to take care of some LCPD people. Kill the two guys across the room. Collect their guns. Now there are two more out in the hallway. Just outside to your right, left and right of the corridor. Kill the one on the left first then the one on the right. Time to go upstairs. Aim for the landing above you. A guy will roll in from the right, take him down. If he gets up again, shoot again until he is dead. Go up and before you reach the top turn around. The next guy is behind you on the south side of the building. Now head up to the next level. Be careful not to kill Playboy X. On the next level Playboy charges ahead. Get up and shoot them behind you over the railing. Now go to the roof. One is a bit to the front and right and the other further to the front and more on the right side. You can use your sniper here very effectively. Remember, headshots are instant deaths. Go further and follow Playboy. More cops come up the roof from the right side. You can easy take them down. Go down the stairs they came up through. Down there a door opens and another cop comes out. Playboy usually gets that one. Now go down through that building. There are two more cops inside, you can see them on the radar popping up with arrows down (they are below you). One on the second landing, the last just before the exit. Kill them and leave the building. Outside, grab the ride in front of you. Now make a run. You have to escape the heat first. Don't go on the freeway, but get into the small streets. Once you are clear, head for Playboy X's place downtown. Deliver him to his doorstep and you are done.
Roman calls you, he got the insurance money from the fire and is building his cab business again.
Go to the B blip and park in the arrow.
Easy As Can Be
Remember the guy you killed for him? He left a car Brucie wants. Easy, sure. When you drive there, you get out and get into the car. Instantly some company arrives. You have two choices, either drive off and have them chase you all the way back to Brucie, riddling the car with bullets, or get out and make a stand. Getting out is the easier way to do it. Just kill the guys in the cars that want to kill you (there are three groups), then get into the car and drive it back to Brucie. Get back in one piece, avoid crashing or backing into things, drive a bit erratic if you have not killed them first. You have to keep the car in one piece, as in not exploding while surviving too, other than that it can be in as bad a shape as possible. Once it’s in, you are done. Niko calls Brucie, letting him know it was not so easy.
Go back to Brucie and stand in the arrow at the B blip.
Out of the Closet...
Brucie is a bit out of it. the cousin of the guy you killed for him owes him money but is in hiding. He dates guys though and they made you a profile. Go to an internet Cafe and use a computer. Find a user called French Tom on Love-meet.net (in the game, not for real). Click on the link on your homepage to get to the site. Click on Male and you get to the profile. Look at your own for a laugh. Find French Tom (he wears a blue jacket with a red rose) then click on date in the bottom right corner.
Now log off and go do something else. Go eat (your health most likely is low) or date Michelle, or go out with LJ.
Brucie will call you in between here.
Return to the internet Cafe. You can check out your email and see one of Brucie's car stealing jobs. The next one is an Exotic Export Intruder. You can find it in the north. The guy inside has a gun. Drag him out, kill him and then grab the car. Remember, damage the car and you lose money. You get $1100 for this one.
Go to the safe house and save the game. By now Roman should send you a text that your "lover" is ready. Go to the internet cafe and get your emails. French tom should have replied. Give him a positive reply and exit. Ignore Brucie's Email for now. You now have a time for your date, make sure you don't miss it. The game tells you when you have 2 hours to your date, and again when you have 30 minutes to go. If you would sleep too long and miss it, the game wakes you up in the middle reminding you of your appointment.
Once it's time, go to the diner you agreed upon and enter. Get close and sit down. At any point you can push a button to get up. Get out a weapon and waste him. With that, you are done here, Brucie will call you and congratulate you.
Go to the M blip and stand into the arrow.
The Puerto Rican Connection
You got to shut up some people that are talking crap about Manny. Grab a car and go to the bridge when you stop in the arrow you will see a train come in. Your target is on that train. Now follow the train (in the streets). He will get off at Cerveza Heights. You can choose to take the target here at the station (saves time) or you can stay in your car and wait for him to get into a waiting car there. The car drives to the burger shot in Beechwood City. Once they are parked, they get out and start shooting at you. Get out and waste them. Make sure you got them all, one might make a break for it to the east. When you got them all, you are done and call Manny to report.
You get an SMS from an unknown person. He wants to meet you, but ignore that for now.
Elizabeta calls you on the phone she needs some peacemaker help.
Go to the E blip and step into the arrow.
You will get an SMS from Brucie about getting better clothes in a better shop. Ignore it.
The Snow Storm
Elizabeta got ripped off, her coke is gone. Get into a car and drive to the old hospital on Colony Island. There is a lot of dealers in there. Kill them all. Your best chance is to kill the two guys outside, then the guy on the upper level just inside. Now go to the corridor where most of them hide out. Clean that out, make sure you watch out for the two guys on the upper level and then clean the last two guys in the last room. Grab the vest and the coke. An alternative approach is to drive north along the fence from the parking lot and park in the corner next to the road. This puts you right next to the sea. Jump the low concrete wall and walk along the sea until you see the ladder coming up from the sea. Right next to it, there is a hole in the fence. Enter and walk to the back of the old hospital, where there is another ladder going up to upper level. Walk the ladder and crouch behind the concrete block. There are a couple of guys on the upper level, and some on the lower level together with a gas canister that can be blown up. The coke is in a room to your left, along with two guys. There is a rifle down below in the big room to your left.
Now you got some police heat on your back. Go back out and kill the cops trying to get you. Get to the pay and spray down at Purgatory. Make sure cops don’t see you enter and get redone. Your heat is gone and your car brand new.
You can also jump into the water next to the old Hospital and grab the speedboat that is anchored there for an easier get away.
Niko calls LJ. He is close by the safe house in Bohan. Go up there, exit the car and get close to him. Jacob is not alone. Michelle is working for the feds she says. Niko gives her the coke and she leaves.
Go to the safe house and save.
Go to the B blip on the radar and step into the arrow.
Reward: Stevie's Comet
Brucie is working out in the shop. He needs a flashy car. Grab a ride outside and then drive him up to Willis. The blip is on a car, a Comet. Get out of your ride and grab that one. Now drive up to the race start and park in the arrow. Try to stay in the middle of the field, being 4th and 3rd is not bad. After about ten check points you should get in the front positions. When the track takes sharp turn to the right, and immediately again to the right, followed by a long stretch straight, floor it. This is your last chance. You need to get to the front here. The track makes one bend to the left and then is straight again. These two straights are your ticket if you need some help. Once you win (might take a couple tries) bring Brucie home.
Soon after completing this mission, you will get a call from Brucie. He will arrange car races for you if you ever want to make some extra cash (or complete the game 100%).
Go to the safe house and save the game. Then head over to the E blip and stand in the arrow.
Have a Heart
Elizabeta is in a bad mood. Manny barges in and gets himself and his camera man killed very efficiently by her. Now you have to clean up the mess. Outside get in her car, then drive the bodies to the doctor in Broker. If you bump into something, the trunk will open, displaying the bodies to the world. Get out of the car, go to the back and the game will indicate a button to close it again. So just drive slowly and carefully and it should never happen. If cops see the bodies, you get a rating that you have to shake before you can drop off the bodies. You can also destroy the car (grenade works well) or dump it into a large body of water once you are a good distance away from Elizabeta. The only difference is that you wont get any money if you do that. If you deliver the bodies, park in the arrow in the alley. The doc takes the organs to sell on the black market. You call her to let her know all is well.
Now make your way to the south, to the ? blip.
Call and Collect
You find officer McReary here. He is getting blackmailed and you have to do the exchange, while he lets you off the hook for other things. And you get him (Francis) in your phonebook now. Go to the view point in Lancaster. Francis tells you to call a number and see who answers the phone there. The number is 843-555-0124. You can quickly call it from the cell phone and watch. A guy in a dark sweater with a yellow hood stands up from a bench in the area down there (exact location is random). Make your way down, but keep at least one flight of stairs away. You will see him get up, grab his phone and start talking. As you get closer, you will hear him talk directly too, without the phone. You can wait for the call to end or hang up yourself. Waste him then grab the storage device. Now make your escape. Get rid of the heat. You have to bring it now back to Francis (he is northwest of the view point in East Holland). A good way to lose heat here is the pay and spray up here, it is all close together.
Go to the X on your map and step into the arrow.
Patrick McReary calls you just before you get to Playboy X. He is now on your phone as Packie. Also Francis sends a text message, he is available as mission start point as well.
Deconstruction for Beginners
Contractor: Playboy X
Playboy X gets a visit from his old buddy Dwayne. He wants to pick up where they left off. Now get into a car outside. There is a problem with some real estate. Drive to the south and get into the car at the green blip. Now you should be armed well enough to do this. Step on the lift on the side of the building and ride it to the top. Now go next to Playboy and look down. Take out all the lookouts. Two are at the tip of two cranes. Orient yourself with the blips for the directions. The last one is closer, on the end of a crane. Ride down again to street level.
Go across to the other side. Now you can see the guy in the scaffolding a bit above ground, as soon as you hop over the fence. If you can headshot him, this will make things easier. Unlikely this will happen though. So fend off his goons on the left and wait until he is closer before you concentrate on him. With him dead, the next guy is on the upper level of the next site. Use the ramp in front of you. Now you could snipe those guys up here from the roof where the lookouts were taken out from. The union boss though is protected. If you killed them all, only the union boss is left here. He is hiding behind a crate. Throw a grenade back there (aim high) and he is history. Go towards that corner where he was (west side) and over the ramp there, duck. To your left is more enemies. Kill them. Now go to your right as far as you can and you see the boss far ahead. You can snipe him from here. Go forward and when you go to the corner, a helicopter comes in. Do not advance, but stay there and kill the guys close by. Keep close to there. More guys are coming at you. Take them down. Now make your way around the corner and forward. Dispatch all opposition. The last boss is on a level between two buildings, but you might catch him when he is just climbing up a ladder. With him dead your job is done.
You call Playboy to let him know it’s done. Now wait a little while and Playboy X calls you, you are to help Dwayne who is also now in your phonebook.
Mallorie will call you too, letting you know that Manny is dead (we know) and that Elizabeta did it (we know) and now is in jail for it.
Now go to the east island again and go to the PM blip and stand into the arrow.
Harboring a Grudge
You get introduced to the family then it's time for some business. A shipment is coming in at the docks that is supposed to be worth your while. Drive him over and park in the arrow. Now get out and follow Packie around the building to your left. On the back you learn how to shimmy and climb on top of things you normally would not get up on in previous games. On top get close to him and watch the cut scene.
He tells you to get down (jump down to the east towards the water onto the balcony, circle around to the north to get to the same level as those guys). But instead start shooting from up here and take as many out as you can. Your chances are a lot better, as you have a better angle to take them down. Once you floor is cleared go down. There are three on the left side and two on the right side, in the garage where the truck is. The ones on the right you can see from outside, the ones on the left, you mostly only see one and two more come out when you get more into the garage. Simply go to the left side, and they will come out off the office. Kill them all, collect the guns (less ammo you have to buy) and get into the truck. Now drive it over to the lockup. As you drive some angry guys come and shoot at you. You have grenades in here you can toss out the window and blow up anyone following you, but I'd advise against it as you can blow yourself up with them too. Mostly just drive, they are not too smart. Alternatively, get out of the truck and kill them on foot. The lockup is a bit tricky, it just is a hole in the concrete barrier to get into, so make sure you have enough space to pull in there. With it safely stored you are done. You meet someone else from Packie's circle of acquaintances.
Return to the PM blip and stand into the arrow.
Francis calls you when you get close to Packie. They are brothers, and there are two more of them.
Waste Not Want Knots
You are going to rob the Mafia. Grab a four door car, get close to them and honk. Let them go in and then go to the blip on Colony Island, the same island you were before during the snow storm mission. The money should be in the main office of the main building. Follow the guys over the fences. Now there are nine enemies outside. Keep back and pick them off with good shots. Then go towards the door where the others go and enter the building with them. There is a lot of them inside, two on the upper areas. Kill them all then go up the stairs to grab the money. Now come back down. Just kill what’s close to you, as they will come over and over again. Make your way down and to Packie where the blip indicates. Now follow him down to the dock. He will swim with you to the boat that is out there. Get in and once Packie is in too, start to drive it north to the yellow blip. With you safely back on land your mission is over.
After a bit Packie calls you again to ask if you want take Kate out on a date. He gives you Kate's number. A tiny bit later you get a text from him, telling you to go to Perseus the cloth store and get a suit and tie and good shoes, as you will need it for the next gig.
So head over there first. There are a few good cars in the area where you got dropped off so that should be a fast ride.
Go in and buy a suit (on the right side, the onyx, obsidian and charcoal ones will do fine) and some new shoes (black loafers) and you are set. Packie also sends you a message to call his sister. We do that after this mission.
Go back to Packie at the PM blip and step into the arrow. You have to be there between 6am and 7 pm though, otherwise the mission won’t start.
Three Leaf Clover
Reward: $250000 Alderney unlocked
This is the number one paying mission in the game, after this you should not need any more money really. You meet Derrick and Gerald. They don't trust you too much. Find a four door car again, get close, honk and let them get in. Now drive to the bank in Chinatown. Time to rob the bank. One of the hostages plays hero and it gets ugly. Go down into the vault and grab the cash. You have now a five star rating, which really is a hard thing to shake, almost all of the lower half of the area is a search area. Exit the bank and shoot your way to the right into the alley. You see only the static cops on the radar, there are some walking in all the time from different directions so be careful. Aim for the head so you save bullets. Down the alley, you get shot at from two sides. Take down the cops on both. Now the guys go left, where more cops come from all directions. Take them out and follow your partners to the left and straight. Now take down the blockade ahead and kill all the cops. Turn right, kill the guy on the building to your left (on some fire stairs) and the cops standing around here as well. Follow them across the street straight and into the narrow alley. A chopper arrives, shooting at you. They decide to go through the subway. Walk down, around the corner to your right. There are two cops around the corner to your right. Now go left and further down. There a few cops are waiting for you. Take them down carefully, then go to the right area. There, more cops come up, let your partners deal with them head on and take out what spills out on the sides. then go down there to the platform. Hide behind a pillar, furthest from the stairs. Cops will come on the other side of the platform, and trains will hide you. After a bit your guys decide to go down the tracks, follow them. Turn around (stand in the middle so trains won’t get you) and shoot the pursuers. Again, aim for the head. Once Packie decides to go on, follow them further, keeping to the middle so the trains won’t hit you. On the right comes a blip in front of a service hatch. Get in there and then up the stairs you see on the left. Just to the right is a first aid kit on the wall if you need it. Make it to the street level then get instantly in the car parked there to your right. Now lose the heat. Your rating is down to a three, still a lot. Make your way to Dukes, where you have better chances of getting rid of these guys. Your best chance is to go to a pay and spray. With the heat gone go to the McReary's house and park in the arrow. Now you have a whole wad of cash on hand.
A whole bunch of messages come in now. LJ tells you to call him if you need cash. LJ sends another one, so does Roman, about hanging out with them.
Gerald calls you and has some job for you. You also get him as Gerry on your phone. And a bit later Packie calls and Derrick needs some help too. You got the whole family now.
Also now all the bridges are unlocked, you can go everywhere in the game now.
Go to the GM blip close to where you are and stand in the arrow.
Actions Speak Louder than Words
Gerry got a plan. He wants to cause some trouble between the Albanians and the Italians. Go and pickup the bomb in the alley where Gerry placed it. Now drive over to Little Italy where the car is parked. Go behind it, and plant the bomb with the button the game tells you. Get back into your car, then park facing west in the arrow. The mobsters come out and get into the car. Follow the car now. Keep your distance, you have done this before. They go through the city to the Northwood, close to the water. Once you seen them drive in, go to the yellow blip and stand in the arrow. Now get your cell phone out, call Gerry and then select detonate. Four guys survive this though. Now take them out, the sniper rifle helps a lot here. With them dead, grab a ride and lose the heat. Once you are clear, the mission is over.
You talk to Gerry again on the phone.
Go back to the GM blip and stand in the arrow.
I Need your Clothes, your Boots, and your Motorcycle
Gerry wants you to stir the ants nest some more. You are disguising yourself as an Albanian. Get on the bike at the blimp then make your way to the meeting point. There you meet Franky. Franky has a bike. Franky runs away. Chase him. You won’t catch him or get him off his bike for a while though. You go through the tunnel with him, then he makes a turn to the right and goes through some alleys. Back on a street, he turns left and slows down. Now bump the bike so he falls off. Get off yourself and kill him. If you can't bump him off, just be sure to stay with him. Eventually, he'll stop (at a gas station) and get off his bike. Then take him out. A job well done. Niko calls Gerry he might be going back to jail soon.
Good idea to date Kate in between here. Also Brucie will want some attention. You can go power boating with him. Funny thing is there, he will call the statue "Statue of Freedom" while the game tells you "Statue of Happiness" at the same time.
Go to the X blip and stand into the arrow.
Contractor: Playboy X
A snitch is giving Playboy some problems. He gives you a new cell with a camera and tells you to take a picture. Get in the car and go to the blip. So now you need to take pictures, without getting too close. Go across the street so you can see the guys. Open the cell phone. Open the menu, select the camera now aim it on one of the guys, take a picture and send it to Playboy. He will text you back, letting you know if you got the right one or not. Take a picture of the guy that does most of the talking in the cut scene. Your best chance is to take the picture from the opening on the left, and zoom on his head. Send it and you should get a call back, that you got the right guy. Aim for the one he points out first, as he makes a run for it as soon as you open fire, kill him. His friends will open fire on you. They are not needed to complete the mission, but it is a good idea to kill them so you can get away easier.
Michelle will call you, and you get a ? blip on your radar.
Go to the D blip on the radar.
Dwayne has a few problems. Niko decides to go and talk to his girl and her new lover. They are in an arcade downtown. When you get there, the lover makes off on a bike. You can kill the girl (Cherise) or let her live. Killing her has no negative impact. If you let her live, you can meet her later again as a Random Character. A bike is parked behind you, grab it and get the guy. Ram his bike with yours and he falls off. Kill him, grab the money he drops, then make a run for it. After that, go to the Cluckin Bell in the triangle. Enter the store and go to the far corner where the blip is to exchange the money and you are done.
Around the block from here is Michelle at the ? blip. Go there and stand in the arrow.
Wrong is Right
Contractor: United Liberty Paper
Michelle takes you inside the building. She thinks you are actually a good guy and not a creep, nice. Also her real name is Karen. You get introduced to a guy. He will be in your phone as U. L. Paper. He wants you to find out something about a specific guy. Go to the blip in Broker. Go to his computer and use it. Go into his emails and read them. Exit the computer. Niko calls UL and gets the job to kill the guy. Go over to the jeweller shop and he makes a run for it. Now just keep at him, don’t get too close. He will go downtown, over the bridge and cruise around in here. When he is on the street going north on the western side of Middle Park, he is done for. Ram him to get him entangled in the trees or something. Then shoot him. With the guy dead your mission is over. Niko calls in to let him know it’s done.
Head north, towards Bohan. On your way, Mallorie will call and tell you Roman is in trouble. This has priority.
Follow the yellow blip to the warehouse, get on foot and stand in it. Now a large gun fight happens. At first, the enemies are unaware of your presence and you hide behind a wall. Take out the ones in front of you and then clean up the rest of the ground floor. Stay in hiding mostly until you get a clear shot, then come out and land a headshot, then back down again. This should allow you to survive this first wave. Aim up for the guys on the upper levels and then move to the left, where you can collect a medi pack. Just behind you on the upper level are more guys, shoot them from the base level too then go up the stairs. Kill the guys ahead of you and make your way higher. When you come to the part where they hide behind pillars, slowly advance or use grenades to flush them out. If you hit them in the arm they sometimes stumble out of their cover and you can finish them off too. Before you go upstairs, there is body armour here. Aim up and to the left, there are three goons on a beam that you can take out. Go up the next stairs and look again up and to the left, where two guys with assault rifles pound on you. Dispose of the rest of the guys ahead of you and the last guy standing across the open space in a door way, then enter that door. In the room the guy that kidnapped Roman has him in a grip. Use free aim and take out the guy holding Roman with a headshot. Now leave with Roman, just follow him down to the car. Get in the car and drive back to the safe house in Bohan and park in the arrow. You are in trouble, but that you already knew.
Head over to the D blip and stand in the arrow. On your way over, Roman will inform you that you have a new safe house in Algonquin. He will also text you once before that and once after that to thank you and remind you that normal cabs are too expensive and he will offer you a car service, which is an on call cab that is free for you.
Undress to Kill
Dwayne is not happy, again. A strip club he wanted has squatters in it. Time for some more action. Drive over to the strip club, remember not to show weapons when entering. Inside walk to the two guys to your left and listen to what they say. Now go to the far back left where a guy is talking to a stripper, that’s the second manager. Now go to the VIP area, on the right hand side where it’s a bit higher. Walk to the back, but not into the stripper room. A guy is having a lap dance there. Now back up and go to the front again. Go slowly into the room with the guy that counts the money. Stab him with a knife from behind until he is dead. This might attract some other guys, let them come into the room and kill them in there the same way, do not use a gun. Now go out and stand at the doorway to the strip booths. From here you can see the guy next to the stage. Shoot him, then quickly whip around and kill the guy that gets a lap dance. If you are not fast enough for this, one of them might make it through the front entrance and tries to escape in an SUV. If that happens, go outside and follow him. Ignore the cops. Now chase him down and kill him. You will have to drive and shoot. A good idea is to trap him, then shoot him from the side or the front. If that doesn’t work for you, he will get out of the car if there is too much damage going on and that’s when you can run him over. Once they are all dead, your wanted level goes back to zero. Niko calls Dwayne to let him know the club is cleaned up.
Time to have a look at this new place. Go to Algonquin and save the game in your new safe house. Simply walk into the elevator in the lobby to get where you need to go. Change into the suit from the bank robbery.
Playboy X calls you. That strip club was in his business interest, oops.
Go to the FM blip in front of the police station and stand in the arrow.
Some lawyer is on Francis heels. The guys name is Tom Goldberg. The only way to get close is in a job interview though. Since you are already in a suit, that’s perfect. Go to an internet cafe and log on. Now on the main page is an ad for Goldberg, Ligner & Shister. Click on it, then on careers on the top right part. Now click on submit resume. You can read his resume. Click again on submit resume on the bottom. Now leave the internet cafe. You get "Lawyers" as a contact in your cell phone. Niko calls Francis to let him know that it is going on. If you sent it at night, you get a message that tells you they are closed at the moment.
Playboy X calls you, he needs help. Since you are very close already, go to the X on the map and stand into the arrow.
The Holland Play...
Contractor: Playboy X
He has trouble with Dwayne. Playboy wants Dwayne dead. Niko is not so sure about it though and leaves. Dwayne will call you later and propose something similar. The mission does not start yet though, so you can do other things. You can trigger it yourself by calling them both repeteadly, or just wait for it to happen.
Brucie texts you about some opportunities, that can wait.
Go to the U blip (United Liberty Paper) and step into the arrow.
Portrait of a Killer
Contractor: United Liberty Paper
You need to kill someone else. To do so you need access to a police computer first, so let’s find a cop car. The easiest is to grab one behind the cop station where Francis Mission started. Just to the west of it is an alley, and there behind it you find an unguarded police car, which makes this a very handy find. If you don't remember where that is, simply go to the triangle (thing that looks like times square) where the two large roads cross. Exactly where the crossing is, take that road to the west, it’s in the second block on your right, can’t miss the parked cop cars outside. Grab one and get rid of the heat you most likely will get from that. Now stop the car and access the computer. Search the database, by photo. It will automatically connect to your phone and show you the picture UL sent. Select it and wait. The computer will tell you this is Adam Dimayev. Press the button for locate. He is in Dukes in a warehouse. As you approach you will notice the red symbols, lots of guards here. UL will call and tell you to kill them all. The best way is to approach them from below. Kill the first level and what you can see on the upper, then climb the ladder on the left to the upper level and kill all the guys up there. With everyone dead, UL tells you that you are closer to your goal.
Go to Algonquin. On your way Dwayne will call, now he wants Playboy dead. Maybe killing both will solve your problems.
Also the lawyers call, you got an appointment with them tomorrow at noon.
Go back to the U blip and stand in the arrow.
Contractor: United Liberty Paper
The guy wants you to kill someone else, shocker. Stock up on weapons, armor and food if you are low. You should have enough money for that. Then go to the yellow blip. A chopper takes off, heading south, follow it on the streets. It just circles the island to the south, keeping close to the water front. The destination is a landing pad in Purgatory, just west of the Pay and Spray near the Booth Tunnel. Wait til it has landed. Now kill the two guards at the entrance. Take out your sniper rifle and shoot the remaining five guards over a distance, that’s the easiest way. Now get into the chopper (cops will come your way) and take off. Fly off to the airport. If you are an unsure flyer, just push the button for gas and you will take off straight and when you have lots of space you can experiment with the control. Land it where the arrow indicates and you are good. UL will tell you that they need to outfit it. So there is some downtime here.
Drive back to Algonquin. On your way, Playboy X calls you, if you made your decision.
...The Holland Play
Reward: Safehouse in Algonquin (for killing Playboy X, his penthouse) or $25,000 (for killing Dwayne)
You have to chose between one of the two targets now. This is a forced mission, you can't refuse.
Chose between Playboy X and Dwayne now. If you kill Playboy, Dwayne will give you Playboy's place as thanks and you also will get him as a friend. His special ability is giving you backup (a bunch of goons that follow you and help you) if he likes you enough. If you kill Dwayne, Playboy X will give you a wad of cash and then never talk to you again. Other than that, it has no impact on the game.
Killing Playboy: Go to the X on the radar and stand into the arrow. Playboy doesn’t take it well. Some guys are around and protect him. There is three on the left side and one on the right, get them first. Before you go out on the balcony, there is a small trick that can shorten this mission. Throw a grenade on the balcony, let it explode then quickly step out there. Playboy will lie on the floor stunned, which makes him easy to kill right there. If you don't do that,he jumps off the roof. Jump over too and then down through the building (no surprises inside). Get out onto the street level. Two guys in a hummer like vehicle (Patriot) are coming after you. Kill them with a good aim then go across the street to the alley where Playboy X ran into a corner. His gun is empty, he is out of luck. Switch to the hand gun, then execute him. With him dead Niko calls Dwayne to let him know. He gives you Playboys penthouse as thanks, which means now it is another safe house for you.
Killing Dwayne: Go to the D in the radar and step into the arrow. There is one guy with Dwayne, kill him then Dwayne and you are done.
As you wake up, it's time for your interview. Grab a ride to the Tie blip in the south of the city and step into the arrow.
If you do not have a suit yet, change into one, or buy one from Perseus just a bit to the west of the lawyer's office. Enter the building and go to the reception. Now follow the receptionist through the door on the left down the corridor and to the door in the corner there. Enter through that door. You will see that you are sitting on a chair and have the lawyer babbling on. Once the radar is back and you see him as a red dot on there, it's time for him to die.
There are multiple ways to do this. One of the best is to aim a gun at him. He will be intimidated and give you the files. Now switch to the knife and kill him that way. If you do it right, he will die and no sound will have disturbed anyone, so you can simply leave through the front door.
Alternatively, shoot him or stab him, then shoot the windows behind him and jump out through there (it's one story up) and make your escape.
Or shoot him and walk out the door, but now this gets a bit more complicated. Three guards are coming towards the door, take them down and then take down the fourth guard that hides behind the cleaning supplies in the corridor. Walk towards the exit, but its closed. Kill the guard on this level, then go to the railing. There are two more guards, one on the lowest level behind a desk, and one on the medium level, the opposite side of the desk. Take them out and go to the lowest level using the stairs in the southwest corner. On the bottom, there are two cops, take them out then make a run for it through the door one of the cops came in. Lose the heat now. Get into the inner town area and lose them there by cutting corners.
Once you are out and have no heat on your back anymore, take the files to Francis, next to the police station. Francis is happy about your work.
Walk around to the front of the building and step into the FM blip.
Francis wants a large quantity of bad guys taken care of. Suit up and strap up. Get health, get armor, get weapons, this is going to get ugly. Go to the blip in the north and step into the arrow. Niko calls Francis. The guy is on the second floor. You got to take down Clarence. You have again, multiple choices here. You can take him down from afar (making this mission short) or you can chase him to the roof top. On the roof you get the choice to kill him or let him live. If you let him live, he will return later as a Random Character just north of here, but it has no other gameplay impact. The fastest is to kill him from a distance.
Either go across the street to the south and shoot him from here, or climb the crane close by and kill him from here. If you try it in the yard, his gang will be alert and he will run.
If you decide to be up close and personal, go straight, there are two guys you saw in the cut scene showing a stair case. Kill them and run up the stair case. Take down the guys that will come up after you. Now you got to make your way towards the target. He is in the center, no matter which way you go up (there is a second staircase) he will run to the other one. So make your way across, killing the guys in your way. At the stair case he will throw something down at you. Then go up and kill the guys up here. He will go a level higher out onto the roof. Take down the guys and try to kill him here. If you can't, you get your chance a bit later. Once he is dead, the cops arrive. Seems like they don't appreciate your help. Get out, get rid of the heat and you are done.
UL calls you. The helicopter is ready. This is a forced mission, you can't skip it.
Contractor: United Liberty Paper
Go to the yellow blip in the north, the helicopter is waiting there with Little Jacob inside. Get in. Now fly towards the enemy chopper, who is at this time somewhere around Middle Park. He flies a curve around the city and back to the channel between the eastern islands. Once he is over clear water it's time for combat. All you have to do is get close, on the same level and keep on him. Jacob will do the shooting. With me he got him on the third shot. With the guy dead, go to the helipad in the southeast of Algonquin and drop off Little Jacob. After a safe landing you are done. You are calling UL to tell him you are done. Get out of the chopper.
Go to the FM blip a bit to the west of here and step into the yellow.
Francis is a bit on the edge. Another hit has to go down. Get to the car at the green blip to the north. It is parked in a parking area on the right side of the street, it is the most southern car of them and it's open for you. Get in and drive north to the yellow blip. As you park there you call Francis. Get out of the car and enter the building across the street with the red door. Run up the stairs to the roof. Stand in the spot marked with the arrow. Now there are a couple of ways to get this done. Either call his number you see in the cut scene so he goes to the phone, which you can also see if you zoom in on the answering machine (it's 545-555-0122). Or you can just shoot the window, and when the guy goes to look out, shoot him. I chose to shoot the dish on the side of the building, causing the television to go out (shoot him when goes to the television and starts to slap it). Go back down to street level and you are done. Niko calls Francis to let him know.
Go and save in a safe house.
Go to the RB blip and step into the arrow.
A Long Way to Fall
Let's see how this mob thing plays out. Of course he wants someone whacked. Ray sends you an image of a guy in a gray shirt with the number 72 on it that might be able to help you, if you persuade him. Go up to the yellow blip and get out of your car. Now look for the guy on the picture, he stands to the right from where you are standing. When you get close, he tells you he has no idea who you are talking about. Now beat him up. Once his health is halfway down he will talk. He will also talk when you target him with a gun. He tells you that the guy is on the top floor. If you let him leave and live, he will phone up to his buddies, informing them that you come up and you get shot at immediatly (might kill you even). So kill him instead before he runs away and you can spring a surprise on the guys later. Enter the building and use the elevator to go to the 20th floor. As soon as you get out, turn left, there is a guy standing there, kill him. Now there is a guy down the corridor to your right and one will come out a door to your left. Kill them. You have to walk around to the other side. Around each corner is a guy. Kill them both. Now go up to the next level. Same procedure here. Kill the guys in the hallways, go to the next level. Now this is where the guy is. Clean the area first, there is a guy around the corner to your right. Kill him then go for the apartment. There are three guys in there, one straight and two to the left. Take them out. Now go into the kitchen area there is a health pack on the counter. Leave the kitchen again. The guy comes out and gets lucky, delaying you. Go after him, but slowly. Be careful. Go to the stairs and up. To your right in a door way is a guy. Kill him. Now go in there and aim up and to the left. Keep your eyes there, as there is a guy up there. Go to the foot of the stairs and you should see him. Take him down then go the stairs to the top. Behind this door there is one guy to the right, you can kill him with the door half open. There is only one left, just go to the blip at the end of the roof. Shoot him and he goes for his long fall. Niko calls to let Ray know you are done.
Return to the RB blip and step into the arrow.
Taking in the Trash
You are going to be a garbage man, good job! You will pick up diamonds that were stolen and then stashed in trash bags. Get to the Trashmaster in the alley, then go in and start driving. Go to pickups and stop while the guys take in the diamonds. After the second pickup you get some attention. Just drive to the lockup and park it in the arrow. the guys can’t destroy the Trashmaster it’s a solid piece of metal. Once parked you are done. You call Ray to let him know.
Return to the restaurant at the RB blip and stand into the arrow.
Luca has stolen the diamonds, bad move. Go to the south and you try to talk to them. They take off in their car and you get into the banshee there. Don't try to ram them or shoot them, simply follow them. If you kill them (you can shoot the car to explode) then you fail the mission. Once they go north west of Middle Park, they will end up crashing into a statue and flee into Middle Park itself. Now they are on foot and time for them to die. Get out and kill the three that are open laying around. Luca himself hides out in the toilets. Shoot the doors open using a shotgun at an angle so you get multiple doors at one shot. He seems to like the first stall on the right, but the game places him randomly in one of them, so you might have to open them all. Kill him then grab the diamonds he just dropped. Go out into the open and Niko calls Ray. You are to deliver them to the bridge in middle park. That’s a short jog to the north, on the bridge. Once you dropped them off, you are done.
Go again to the RB blip on the map and visit Ray Boccino by stepping into the arrow.
You have to offload the diamonds. Ray also promises to find the guy you are looking for. Go to the blip south of the museum. Inside the deal goes wrong, someone wants to jack it. Now you have to escape. First shoot the guy to your left. There is another guy a bit further back, kill him to. Now pay attention to the guys in the corridor straight. Make your way over to the stairs. Take down the guys that want to come up and go almost fully down. You can see a couple of guys in the distance, use your sniper to kill them and make it easier. Now go ahead, there will be another guy on the left top and one on the right, and a couple ahead. Make your way to the door on the other side of the stairs. Go through it and kill the three guys around the right side. Now you can restock your health here ahead and two more guards stand outside to the right. Kill the guards then take the Turismo to your left. Floor it to the right, then take another right and speed like crazy. Just go straight and you will escape before you hit the construction site. Niko calls Ray to break the bad news, he tells you to return.
Go to the RB blip and stand in the arrow.
No Way on the Subway
Ray introduces you to Phil. The bikers called "The Lost" have the money, so go up to the yellow blip and park there. The bikers won't make it easy on you. Get on the bike ahead and chase them. they will drop into the subway system. You can shoot them in here (although that’s not needed) or chase them to the subway train wreck. Either way you can kill them easy enough. Keep on the right track, that’s the train going in your direction, and avoid oncoming trains. With both dead, Niko calls Ray letting him know that your target wasn't there.
Ray calls you a bit later. He got a lead on Florian. This is a forced mission, you can't skip it.
Weekend at Florian's
Now go to the yellow blip, where Talbot is standing. Get a four door car and make sure everyone is on board. Now drive up north. At the height of Middle Park, the guy will tell you to go left. He drives you around the block until you are at the western most street before the double lane freeway. He will tell you that your destination is here so park in the arrow that will appear. Niko barges in Florian's apartment. Florian wasn't the traitor it seems. He has become a sort of fitness instruction and goes by Bernie Crane now. He explains that it was Darko Brevic that backstabbed them.
Niko calls Ray telling him it wasn’t who he was looking for.
A bit later UL calls you, he knows Bernie wasn't the guy. He will call you later.
Go to the safe house and save.
Bernie calls you after you saved. He will be added to your cell as Bernie and the BC blip will show up. Mallorie calls a bit later too and Roman has told the story of Vlad's death a bit different.
Go to the RB blip on the map and step into the arrow.
Ray has a bad day. Isaac is squealing on Ray. Time for him to die. Take a ride to the Majestic Hotel and park in the arrow. Inside you need to find a way to the penthouse. Go to the elevators to your right and take it up. There is a corridor full of guards. Kill them all. Go straight and kill the two guards on the right. Take the stairs up and go through the door. To your left another guard comes out. Go through that door. Straight behind that door is the first of three targets. A lot of guards here too. One hides to the right behind a clock, three more are further back. The target runs off to the left into the kitchen. Go to the back where the steps lead up. To the left still on the same level is the kitchen with two more guards, one is on the right when you enter the kitchen, be careful. Also the guy ran in here, he usually hides behind the counter. In the corner here is a health pack in case you need it. Now go up the stairs and through the door on the left. Target number two is in there with a girl. Kill them. Go up further the stairs, a guard is on the top of them. Now there is two guards and the target to your right. The middle guard is behind a barbeque grill. Shooting it will blow the thing up and take out two guys. Kill the target, then step out onto the roof. You got some heat now. Aim down and to the left, three more guards are down there. Kill them then go down there. There is a window washer lift that brings you back to the street level, take it. Once you are on the street level, jump over the fence to your left and the mission is done. Now you still got the heat, escape it. After this go and save.
You will get a message from Ray to go and meet him at Phil Bell's place. You also get Bell in your phonebook. For now ignore them.
Roman will call you, he is engaged now.
Go to the BC blip and stand in the arrow between 4am and 10pm.
Hating the Haters
Someone is threatening to kill Bernie. Now you go out to draw the guy out. Drive him to the yellow blip at Middle Park. Now follow him as he jogs along at a distance. He goes into the tunnel and gets attacked. Run up the stairs after the tunnel and get on a scooter. If you are fast, you can get up there too and shoot him as he speeds away. If you get him, great, grab the scooter and pick up Bernie now, otherwise chase the guy around, don’t shoot, just follow. He will pass the west side close to where Bernie got attacked. Stop here when the game tells you to pickup Bernie and let him climb on. Notice the stylish helmet. Now give chase to the guy. Kill him once he turns off to the right of the main street. So as he drives to the east, that’s the best moment to take him down. With the guy dead, bring Bernie to the Perseus down south in Exchange. With him delivered to the place, you are done.
Drive up north again to his place and step into the arrow at the BC blip. Brucie gives you a call in between.
Bernie's lover is getting blackmailed. You are to go to meet them. Take Bernie in a car and go to the northeast corner of the island where the yellow blip is. Just a bit south of Bernie's place is a Turismo parked on the street facing north, that one will do very well for this. The blackmailers arrive, they work for Dimitri. Now they take off, and you will have to chase them. they drive very oddly all over the place but generally go to the east side speed way that goes around the island, heading south. Stay on the right lane, even if they go to the other side. There will be a lot of carnage. On the south end of the road a cop car tries to get them but flips inside the tunnel. Keep on them. They will go right soon after that tunnel, then turn left again into Castle Garden City and flip the car. Now the car is broken down and they get out on foot. Get out yourself, chase them down and shoot them. Return to Bernie, get into the car and drive him home to the arrow at the yellow blip. Now Bernie is happy for the moment.
Time to meet Derrick. Go to the DM blip to the west and step into the arrow.
Derrick is in a sort of delirium on a bench here. He has a problem with a guy called Bucky Sligo, and he wants you to deal with it. This will require a police car. Handy, just to the north are two of them parked. Jack one, and if you pull heat lose it. Stop the car in order to access the computer and search by name for Bucky Sligo (Xbox users, usb-keyboards will work). Press the button for locating him. Now you got a marker on the Burger Shot in the northeast corner of Alderney. Niko calls Derrick to let him know. The plan is to lure him to bring you to his pals. So go up to the burger shot with the police car and park in the arrow. It will help a lot if you back the car up into the arrow, so that you are facing the road and not the burger joint.
Bucky will show up and drive away. He will take a quite complicated route in between houses and yards, make sure to stay close to him. Just follow him slowly, concentrate on driving, don't shoot. You will end up in front of a house, a bit to the west of the burger shot. Get out and kill Bucky and his friend on the porch, sniper rifle or AK will do the trick. Now there are four more inside. Three on the ground level, and one on the stairs. Kill them all then get rid of the heat you pulled. (The easiest way to get rid of the guys inside the house is to call 911 on your mobilephone and let the cops kill the bad guys. after the cops killed the guys, you will get a two star wantedlevel. but don't shoot at anyone. if you shoot anyone, the cops will try to hunt you down --Duckman 14:11, 24 July 2008 (UTC)) Niko call Derrick to report in.
Now you get a text from Ray, he gives you an apartment in Alderney. Now you got safe houses for almost all regions. Then Bernie texts you, he needs more help. And last but not least Dimitri gives you a call. Then Brucie calls you, Stevie the guy that gave you the Comet for the race a lot earlier, wants some cars, he'll call you.
Go to the BC blip at Pier 45 in Algonquin
Bernie wants to have some fun. Niko reluctantly agrees to join. Take Bernie to the blip on Firefly Island. The fun is spoiled. Some of Dimitri's men show up and want to spoil it. Follow them. You can try to shoot them out of the water, which works but takes a lot of ammo. Or simply just follow them. They will go on land at Steinway in Dukes. They won’t run away but hide. Simply go after the three and kill them. Once all three are dead, go back to Bernie to complete the mission.
Now go to the DM blip in Alderney.
This can be a randomly diificult mission with Kim being killed by the guys in the boats before you even get to the helicopter. There doesn't seem to be any way to prevent this other than to kill all the gunman yourself (good luck :) ) so just retry until you get a break.
Derrick shows up with a boat. Go to Kim's boat up north. As you approach a cut scene starts. Now you got to shadow him. Of course some boats come in and try to ruin the party. Shoot at them and keep the boat steady so Derrick can shoot as well. A chopper will come in and the game tells you to get up, Derrick mentioning a rocket launcher. Stand up (using the key to get into a car) and you get the rocket launcher. Aim it at the helicopter, a bit ahead of where it travels to and shoot the thing down. Now take care of the rest of the intruders (careful not to shoot at Kim's boat) then sit down again and follow Kim to the end destination without any further problems.
Now go to the blip DM and stand into the arrow.
Tunnel of Death
Derrick asks you to help him take out one last guy. Aiden O'Malley must die. Packie calls you, he has a truck stashed near the booth tunnel. Go there and grab the truck. Also handy, it has a portable rocket launcher in it. Inside Niko calls Packie. the plan is to block them in and make it look like a prison break. Drive into the tunnel with the truck and where the marker is you can go into the left lane and block the tunnel. Once you are perfectly placed the convoy arrives. Now take out the guards for the convoy. Your sniper rifle will do you a lot of good, specially shooting through windows, into heads will make your life easier. Now for the hard part, to lose the heat. Your best chance is Alderney, so go towards Alderney. A good area is the northern area, north of the train. Once you get the cops behind you enough, you can lose the chopper under the train tracks. Then drive away. Avoid the two way speedway, they will catch you there. Once you lost the heat, go to the "quiet location" at the yellow blip. It's not over yet. You change cars and go back north to the cliffs. Once there, kill Aiden. Niko tells Derrick about it.
Now you get a message from Francis, he has more work. Also Brucie sent you a text about getting some cars for a friend of his. Bernie calls in a bit and he has a car for you at the BC blip.
Now go to the PB blip and stand into the arrow.
Phil wants to get some brown from the triads. Take a car and go to the alley marked with the yellow blip, get out of the car and stand into the arrow. The triads arrive. Best, throw a grenade into the area. That will take care of a lot of them right there. More arrive from the left, kill them all, but do not attack the truck! Once you have killed them all, go towards the truck, it will try to escape. Run up behind it into the arrow. Now hammer the button the game indicates to the to the top. Crawl over the roof until you reach the cab. Once you are in there and get rid of the driver, you call Phil. He wants you to bring it to the old mansion up northeast in Alderney. Park it in the arrow in front of the mansion and you are done.
Niko calls Phil and he gives you the opening for the assassin missions (payphone missions from earlier games) at the crosshair blip. Ignore it for now. A bit later Phil calls you back, Jimmy Pegorino has some jobs for you. Phil sends you a message that you should wear a suit when going to Jimmy, you still have one from the bank robbery.
Now would be a good time to save again.
If you like, you can pick up an Infernus at the BC blip. You don't have to though.
Go to the FM blip and park in the arrow.
Francis is pissed that you did work with Derrick. You have to take down Derrick for him. Now Derrick calls you, he is paranoid of the meeting Francis has set up and thinks he wants to kill him, and asks you for protection. The choice is yours. Now go to the yellow blip, it is on a building. Go to the northwest corner and look to the east. You see some boards stacked and scaffolding in front of you. Jump up there. Now get into the cleaning platform and ride to the top. Cross the roof to the arrow and stand in it. Derrick and Francis meet in the park. Aim down and there you have them, Derrick on the left and Francis on the right. Now chose one of them.
If you kill Derrick, Francis will thank you and give you an option to remove your wanted level by phone. Killing Francis will make Derrick call you later and trigger the Undertaker mission after this.
In either case, after the kill, get back to street level and then get a block away.
Make sure you still wear a suit. Packie calls you, there is a forced mission coming. Francis or Derrick's (depending on who you killed in the last mission) funeral is happening. Also Gerry is on the inside, but you will see him again. Kate calls you too about it. Now go to the yellow blip and step into the arrow.
After the service some guys show up to make troubles, the Albanians. Take the ones on the left down. Another car comes from the left, then another form the right. With those all dead, they spill out of the alley. Now everyone piles into the cars. You get into the hearse with Packie. You get attacked by some Albanians. Your best chance is to slow down on a long stretch and then shoot the driver of the car yourself, then take flight. Otherwise they might shoot you up too much and the coffin might spill out. Also avoid bumping anything. It slides out, but never back in. With the car off your back, go to the grave yard at the yellow blip and park in the arrow. There he rests in peace, finally, and the mission is over.
Get to the J blip while wearing a suit and step into the arrow.
You get greeted by his wife at the door, lovely. Pegorino likes screaming obviously. He has a meet scheduled with another family and you will run security. Ray comes in with a gift for the boss. Outside get in the car and wait til everyone is inside (watch out for Pegorino he's a bit slow). Once you get the yellow blip, drive down to the old refinery in the south. Once you parked in the arrow, you get a sniper rifle. Now walk into the building here to your left, turn right inside and then go up the stairs to your right. On top, go to the arrow and stand in it. Now the deal starts. Keep your sights peeled on the right most guy. You will see two guys coming in from the back. A second later they all get red arrows above their heads, now is the time to kill them. Make sure you only take down the guys with the red arrows. Pegorino makes a run for it. Go back down to the door you came in. Aim to the left and up. There are two guys on the walls, and one a bit higher on the side of the building. Kill them, then go up the stairs. Aim to the left inside the building, there is one sitting there. You also have one beside the building on the right side. You have to run fast to Pegorino to get him alive. Run into the building and shoot the guy straight and immediately to your left around the corner. There are guys left and right here, always behind corners, so look into them. Once you get through the area on the right side in the factory, and you will find Pegorino. Now a bunch of crooks steal the offer. Get in the car and follow them. Ignore the other guys and don’t shoot at the car. Just follow through the industrial area. In the northwest corner, they trash their car and get out. Shoot and drive over what you can, then get out can chase the last ones down. There is a health pack just up the stairs to the left where the car crashed in case you are low. The last one dead has the offering. Collect it and return to Pegorino's car and get in. Now drive him home to his mansion and park in the arrow before the garage and you are done. Pegorino tells you he has more work for you later.
Packie sends a text, letting you know how thankful he is for your help at the funeral and how he knows your eyes are on Kate.
Stay close to the house, and after a bit Jimmy sends you a text to come and see him. Also Gerry will call you, he has put you on his visitors list and you should go and see him later. Ray also calls you later to not forget about him. Sounds like someone will need a bullet later on.
For now go back to the J blip and step into the arrow.
There is obviosly a problem with the Pavanos, and Jimmy Pegorino wants you to change that. You have to kill some Pavanos as they collect money, which you get to keep. Drive down to the diner and park in the arrow, and they will make a run for it. Now follow them, don't start shooting because you dont want to attract heat from the Police yet. Eventually they will crash into the Autoerotica shop. Now there are six guys to take care of there. Kill them all, i found it quite easy if you stand on the other side of the road behind your car, using the AK and the Grenade-launcher.
Another easy option for completing this mission: When you arrive at the Autoerotica shop, park your car in the alley to the right of the building. Walk to the back of the building and take cover at the right-rear corner. 4-5 guys will come back there to get you, usually one or two at a time. Pick them off as they come down the alley to get you. Eventually, they wil stop coming. There will still be a group of guys inside the building that will not come back to get you. Creep around the side of the building until you can just see in the door. Throw a grenade inside, over toward the office. A few guys will die in the blast. Then just walk back to the back of the building. The cars inside will have been set on fire by your grenade. If you give it time, they will eventually all explode, killing everyone left alive in the building. Then you just stroll back around and collect your loot. I didn't attract any heat with this method, but that could have just been dumb luck.
With them dead, you have a two star rating, at least. Lose the cops and you are done. Niko calls Pegorino with the good news.
UL Paper calls, he has a new contact for you to work for, the Gambetti family. Also Kate calls, she got invited to Roman's wedding.
Now go to the PB blip and stand in the arrow in front of the strip club.
Catch the Wave
Go and see Phil. While you talk to Phil his boss will call, there is a problem down at the docks. Drive over to the blip, which is a truck parked under an overpass. You are to steal some drugs to cause some troubles, while making some money for yourself, good plan.
Get into the truck and drive to the docks at Charge Island. Park in the arrow. Some men will approach the car and start asking questions, no need to hesitate, just start shooting them at once.
There are a lot of drug runners in this building. Phil will take the right end of the the dock, take cover on the left side and try to keep up with Phil as you take the drug runners down. Look out for the ones above you on the walk ways. On the left side in the middle is a health pack, grab it if you need it or once all the drug runners inside the building are dead. Go out the back and to the left, there is a armor vest to your left. Then go down to the boat indicated by the blip and get in. Now follow Bell. From the left, just after you left, two boats come in. Concentrate on the one close by, shoot at the pilot of it. Once he is dead, concentrate on driving after Bell. The second one will most likely lag behind. After a while, you are out of reach for them. Now all you need to do is follow Bell to the jetty, then get out and step into the arrow. You are done this mission now.
Return to the J and stand in the arrow.
Jimmy is paranoid. Anthony, his guy was wearing a wire. He had a heart attack on the phone with Jimmy. Now you need to go to the hospital and whack him. Go to the hospital just down the road. Enter without a weapon drawn. Now go inside and to the right. There is a receptionist. Just wait and a doctor will come and drop a phrase about flatline. He will go into a dressing room to the right of the reception. Go in there yourself and step into the arrow and change into the scrubs. Now get out and turn right, through the door next to the reception. Turn left, walk all the way down the corridor to the room with the "patient" in it. The guard in there will leave. Now you got multiple choices. To the right of his bed is a machine. Simply get close to it and turn towards it and the game gives you an option to turn it off. Once now slowly walk away, don't run and you can make it out without attracting any attention. Or shoot him. Make your way out of the hospital, the same way you came in. There are a couple of guards outside the room and then a few further down the long corridor. Use the rooms to the side for cover. Near the entrance on the right side is a health pack if you need it. Get outside, grab a car and make a run for it. Drop the heat and you are done. Niko calls Jimmy, who is paranoid as ever.
Head down to the PB blip and park in the arrow.
Phil wants to go with you to the old Sprunk factory. Take him there. You have to take out Chubby Charlie while Phil makes sure everyone knows he wasn't there. Now you have two approaches, the front door (would not recommend that) or the basement. Take the basement, it is easier. Just go down, to the left and again down into the tunnel below where you came in. At the second barrel, turn left and you get two guards above you. Kill them and wait for a third to come down from the left and kill him too. Get up there over the slabs to your right. One guy is outside the door here, get him, or he will fall in your back. Now go up the stairs. There is one behind you, one a bit to the right up the stairs, and three further back. Kill them and go further up. When you are almost at the top, another guy from a level even higher shoots at you in the back, kill him too. Now progress forward and take the guys out in this large room. On the other side is an opening in the wall. Go there and kill the guy on the left and a bit further in. You see Charlie jump out the window. Further to the left are two more guys. Get them then stand in the window. Aim down left for three more goons. Jump out and collect the health pack behind one of the ducts. Go across the walkway, then turn left and take out the guy there. Turn around, there and shoot the two guys up high on the towers. Now go through the next walkway, and up the ladder. Just when you get up there, straight ahead is another guy. Kill him, then go towards the last roof. Get up on that roof. Now Charlie tries to make it with the chopper. If you have the rocket launcher still, shoot the chopper down. Otherwise it will take a lot of bullets. With the chopper down, you are done and Niko calls Phil to let him know.
Return to the PB blip and park in the arrow.
To Live and Die in Alderney
Pegorino's wife just left Phil's office. Niko asks Phil to help him find his special someone. Now outside get in the car and drive Phil up to the old mansion. You delivered a truck there before. As soon as you look at the drugs, the feds show up. You get in the car and follow Phil. Simply follow, do not try to do more, you can't. In an alley in Berchem, Phil stops, you get on foot now. First take out the cops that block the north entrance. Go south and another car comes up, kill them and two more cars and a swat car pulls up. Kill them all then switch to the rocket launcher, you will need it in a moment. Run across the street where the other guys are and you see them shooting towards the east. Turn and you will see a chopper. Blow it up with the launcher and then get into the van. You have a three star rating, get rid of it. Try to make your way north. Use the alleys "downtown" here to make your escape. Once you are clear, go to the safe house, north of the freeway and park in the arrow. With them safe away you are done.
After a while Jimmy sends you a text. Go up to his house at the J blip and step into the arrow.
Pegorino meets with Phil and Ray. Ray does not really like Phil. Jimmy is in paranoia mode. Once outside get in a car and drive east. Pegorino will call you and tell you to look for Ray in East Holland. Drive over to the blip on the map. You can now follow or drive ahead. If you go straight to the east follow the street curving south you get to a gas station (to your right across the street). Wait on the planters east of the gas station. The cars will pull in from the west and park. Now shoot a rocket into the car to the left (southern one) first, then one into the second car and most of them should be dead now. Clean up surviving guards with a rifle.
Go to the GM blip and park in the arrow.
I'll Take Her...
Gerry is inside. He wants you to call Packie and take care of something for him. You have to kidnap Gracie Ancelotti. Go to the nearest internet cafe. Log on and go to the auto erotica page (an ad should appear on the main page). Click on view cars. Scroll down till you see the pink Feltzer with the number 662-555-0147 next to it. Now log off. She will be in your phone as Mob Daughter. Call her between 8:00 and 21:00. Once you called her, go over to her house at the blue blip. You get into the car with her. Now drive her to the yellow blip and park in the arrow to the south. Once you get close, the blip changes to the safe house far up north. Now drive towards it. Gracie will try to make it hard for you by grabbing the steering wheel. Keep driving slowly up north. After a while Niko had enough and knocks her out. Now you have a peaceful journey up to the blip. When you reach the arrow, dive further down the alley to the entrance of the safe house at the next arrow. With Gracie offloaded, you are done. Niko calls Packie and he is happy about your progress.
Go to the G blip on the map at the medical center and step into the arrow.
The guy does not look like he is going to making it much longer. He does not like the Russians much. He is willing to kill your police file and bring you the guy you are looking for. You are to pick up a guy at the train station and bring him to city hall. Dimitri might not want him to arrive. Drive over to the train station, get out of your car and walk up to him. After your little chat get into the car. Follow the convoy. At one point some construction forces you to go right. The convoy follows and gets ambushed. You escape while the cars get blow up. Now once you have control, get out there and clean up. They come out of the alley straight and from left and right. Kill everyone, then go back to Bobby. Go to the right and turn right again. Four cars will converge on your position, draw back. Kill them all. Without them dead you can't finish the mission. Make sure Bobby stays alive. With them dead, grab a car and go to the yellow blip and park in the arrow to finish. Niko calls Gravelli that Bobby is at his destination.
Go back to the G blip and step into the arrow.
Some Koreans are selling fake money. Gravelli wants you to kill him. Kim eats in Alderney often. Go to the yellow blip, then enter the restaurant called "Mr. Fuk's Rice Box". After the chat with the guy there, kill him. Now go to the right. There are a few guys in the upper areas. Take them out. Get upstairs the first flight and turn around. As you go up the second flight, two guys come from further back. Now another two come from the room to the right where the blip is. Go into the room where the manager is and just hold a gun at him until he tells you where Kim is. Kill him and grab the vest here. Outside more goons have arrived, kill all four, then go across to the kitchen. As you approach, two guys come out, kill them. Enter and Kim is trying to make a run for it. Grab the health pack to your left, get out the door and grab the speed bike. Now follow him and shoot his car. Kill him inside the car and your mission is over. Niko calls Gravelli to tell him Kim is history.
Return to the G blip and step into the arrow.
Liquidize the Assets
The UL guy is visiting Gravelli. You have to destroy some vans with product in them. Go to the yellow blip and get close. The end of the little show, shows you a sniper and a way up. Climb over the fence to the right, where the tank is. Walk to your right in this area (north) and you see on the left a wall you saw before. Climb up the dumpster and to the wall to your right. From here get from air duct to air duct. Now go across the roof climb up all the way to the top with the sniper. Now kill the sniper, then snipe everyone you see down there. More are moving about. Keep an eye out, there will be two guys coming up trying to kill you, there is a door to your right where they come up. Once you have killed what you can from up here, go down through that door in the house. On the ground kill the guys in the near vicinity, then blow up the car. Grenades or the rocket launcher works great. However, if you are cheap, just use the shotgun. The cocaine-laced vans make for good cover because the Russians will not shoot at you, as they do not want to destroy the product. Go further and take down enemies and trucks as you go along. With all trucks out, the mission is over and Niko calls Gravelli. He will call you back once Darko is in the country.
If you have heat, go ahead and lose it.
UL calls you. He has Darko. Now comes a forced Mission. Niko calls Roman, he tells you to pick him up.
That Special Someone
Contractor: United Liberty Paper
Drive to Roman and pick him up. Now drive together to the Airport and park in the yellow blip. Darko gets thrown out of a van and Niko has his personal moment with him. He betrayed you for $1000. Now you have a choice, walk away from Darko or kill him.
The choice is yours and has no impact at all on the game. It is a pure moral choice and only the dialog between Roman and Niko is a bit different after this.
Bring Roman to Brucie's place and park in the yellow arrow to finish the mission.
Niko calls Bernie to let him know what happened. Bernie is happy about you walking away.
Go to the ransom blip (human figure with hands up) in the alley. Enter the door, go up the stairs and the fist door to the right. Stan in front of Gracie, press the button the game tells you to get her to look at you. Now take your cell and make a photo of her, then send it to Packie. Get out of the building now and you are done with this part.
A few hours have to pass now, go out with a friend or do any of the side missions.
After that Gerry wants to see you again. Go to the GM blip and step into the arrow in front of the prison.
She's a Keeper
He wants you to move Gracie. Go up to the safe house and step into the alley behind it. This time she rides in the trunk. Now you have to bring her to the north of Algonquin. Don't damage the car too much or she'll die. To make it worse, you got some company, wanting to kill you. Avoid the cars, concentrate on driving and get her to the yellow blip and park in the arrow.
Return to the GM blip and step into the arrow.
Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend
The guy agreed to exchange Gracie for diamonds. Get over to Packie's car, where you dropped Gracie off in the last mission and get in. You have to go to Charge Island for the exchange. Drive over there to the yellow blip, it then shifts to a further back location, go there and park in the arrow. The exchange is going on now. Of course someone else shows up, Bulgarin himself. He has some friends that want to stir up problems. Keep behind the car and take down the guys between the tanks. When they are all done, follow Packie up the walk way and kill the guys on top. Every time you kill them, more come up and Packie advances. Follow him. Then you split up. Go straight, while he goes to the left. Some will come from the bottom, take them out. Advance and another few are on your left, make sure not to hit Packie. Now go across to where Packie is. The guy there drops the diamonds, they are gone now. Kill the last two, then get down, using the ladder Packie will stand next to. Grab a car (the guys that came in later left some) and bring Packie back home to Dukes.
If you want to date Kate, this is a good opportunity, since you are there already.
Packie will send you later a text that he still can't get it what happened there.
Jimmy calls you too and wants to meet, so let's do that. Go to the J blip in Alderney and step into the arrow.
One Last Thing...
Pegorino wants you to get him some H from the Russians, Dimitri specifically. Phil will help you with this. Niko reluctantly agrees. Outside Niko calls Roman telling him that he will have to work for Dimitri. Then he calls Kate about the same thing. Roman tells you to go work for him, Kate tells you not to.
Now you can select what you want to do. Revenge on Dimitri or take the Deal. The Deal is a bit to your west, Revenge is at the ship you arrived on in the beginning of the game, Platypus. Depending on your choice, missions and ending changes significantly. You will recieve the 250.000$ whichever path you choose.
At this point it's a very good idea to keep an extra save backuped, so that you will have two savepoints called "One last thing" .
Go to the red symbol to the east in front of the Platypus, where you arrived in Liberty city.
A Dish Served Cold
Dimitri is in the hold, overseeing the loading of the H. You need to get to the bridge to open the doors to the cargo area.
Two ways if doing this, thea easiest way is to climb the ladder into the crane, and snipe everyone you can see on the boat, and then cross the plank. The other tactic is to go in, guns blazing.
Kill the guards before the gang plank, then go up it. There are some weapons to your right. Now kill the enemies to your left. Go towards the towering structure, the bridge is on top of it. Enter the ship on its northeast corner and take down the three guards in here. Take the health pack to your left. Advance and go up the stairs. There are four guys hiding in the cabins left and right up here. Kill them and take the vest from the right hand cabin. Go further, out on the deck and make your way to the bridge, by using the stairs on the eastern side. There is one guy hiding in the bridge and a few strewn across the outside. Inside use the lever to open the cargo hold, grab the vest behind you if you need it. A cutscene will show the how the cargo bays open.
Now go down the same way again. You will have some more guys on the outside, and some shotgun guys in those cabins you had to clear out before. When you go down the stairs there two guys come up and harass you, make sure you get them early, or they will kill you fast. Go down to the deck and towards the openings for the cargo hold. Some guards stand at the far end higher up some are between the crates again. Kill them all and get to the cargo holds entrance, which is the open flaps in the middle part of the boat. Stand on the rim of that, then aim down, You can get at least two guys from up here. Tossing handgrenades as a madman works as well. Two more are hiding here, so make sure you kill them before proceeding into the southern part of the cargo hold where Dimitri is holed up. You get a cut scene and Niko hides behind a crate. You can kill them all, or take a shortcut. Simply throw grenades into the corner where Dimitri is. Use free aim (left trigger half pulled) and aim above him then hold the right trigger long to get a long throw. If you get one or two good grenades in, he gives up and all the other guards die instantly. You can use a pistol to execute him or any other weapon to just kill him. Now go through the door to the left of where Dimitri was hiding out. There is no more enemies there. You get up into the kitchen. Now leave the boat and you are done. Roman calls you, he is not pleased, but sort of happy for you.
Phil Bell calls you later too, he isn’t too happy either. Then Niko calls Kate and she wants you to pick you up for the wedding.
There are a Medpak in the kitchen, one vest at the bridge, one vest in the front of the boat, and one vest in a cabin.
Mr. & Mrs. Bellic
Go over to the blue blip, where Kate is standing. Stop, push the horn and let her get into the car. Now take her to the church in south Algonquin and park in the arrow. You get to watch Roman's wedding. Everyone comes out of the church. Jimmy Pegorino shows up and does a drive by, killing Kate in the process. Little Jacob takes you out of there. Next you see Niko wake up in his apartment in Bohan. He is not happy about Kate's death. He is also wearing his original outfit for some reason. Little Jacob has sent a text message, that you should get stocked up on weapons, he will call you later. So grab some weapons and armor at a weapons shop. Also, don't forget to put on a suit or a nice outfit. Revenge should be cold, but it should also be well dressed.
A little later Little Jacob calls you, he and Roman are waiting in a car in Alderney.
Out of Commission
This is the very last mission. Make sure you have stocked up on health, ammo and armor before you start this, you will need it. Get to the car, then enter it. Pegorino's goons come out and get into an SUV. They make a run for it, returning to Pegorino. Tail them, but do not try to kill them. They will drive south on the highway all the way up north, to the old Casino. At one point they change lane, you don't have to yet, but you need to quite soon. When the highway turns to the east again (before the pay and spray) they get off the high way, on the wrong side of course, towards the north. Now they start cutting corners in the Alderney north side, until they come to the northern most road, then get off it to go under a bridge there. As you speed down that path leading to the old Casino, a cut scene starts.
Roman and LJ are retreating to figure out an exit strategy. It is up to you to kill Pegorino that hides out in this old Casino. First of, bring the good ol' grenade launcher out and fire a couple of grenades to take down the guys above you to the right. Don't hide behind the car for too long, it might explode. Switch to sniper rifle to take out the ones visible. Kill what you have in sight, then advance and take down enemies as you go outside the building (Alternative strategy: go back in to the tunnel, get up to the right and snipe the enemies from the bridge. Piece of cake.). Collect their weapons, you will need every bullet you can get. Shortly after the outside is clean, LJ will send you a text to keep your eyes to the sky for an exit strategy. Enter the building on its south side, where the last guards were, or use the alternative strategy. Inside there's a lot of guys with shotguns.
Alterative strategy to clear the building is to get behind the building, get to the roof using the ladder, and shoot the guys through the hole in the roofs. Or, stand in the door, and take down what you can from here. There are a couple on higher ground, one in the back a bit to the left, and one when you get a step in, on the construction container to your left. There is a health pack on the white wall to your left if you need it. Go to the back and the left. There is no guard there just walk in and a cut scene with Pegorino starts. He will run away, time to chase him down. There are no guards until you reach the door upstairs. Behind it are two, one to the left and one to the right. Shoot the door so it opens and kill them this way. Now follow Pegorino and slide down the ladder. To your left are four guys hiding behind various things. Kill them and go to the corner, there stands a lonely guard that has to die. Switch to Grenade launcher and walk forward. Two guys in a car starts shooting at you, but not for long. Take the car out with the grenade launcher. Go down the stairs a bit ahead, towards the blip.
Pegorino makes his escape in a boat. Get on the bike there and follow the coast line. There is a small jump you have to clear, and then later you get to a yellow indicated ramp. Go full speed over it.
Niko jumps high and grabs on to the helicopter. Tap the button the game tells you to get into it. Now you take control of the helicopter. Time to take down Pegorino. There's really no need to shoot at all - just avoid the rockets his shooting at you until you make it to Happiness Island. Avoid his rockets at any cause by going up/down and left/right to dodge. If he hits you that can be the end of this mission.
Niko lands the chopper on the pier of Happines Island, and Pegorino gets on land as well. Now it's time to chase him down. There are two guards straight ahead, one of them is on the left side. Now follow him into the park, eventually leading up to the Statue of Happiness. Shoot him until he has nothing left. With Pegerino dead, the last cut scene comes up. Pegorino out of the picture, Kate avenged, maybe now Niko can live on?
Congratulations, you just beat Grand Theft Auto 4! Now use your backup save and play through the alternative ending!
If the Price is Right
Drive with Phil to the docks. After the gate, go into the area and step into the arrow. Dimitri has screwed the guys over in the deal, now you have to go and grab the money from them. Follow Phil to the west side of the building just north of you and climb on top of the roof. Phil drops with you through the roof. Now you got to make your way to the ground floor, across to the north, and in the middle, up the stairs again to the back office. Just follow Phil, take down the goons on the walk ways, below and sometimes above you. There are a few health packs strewn on the way, you should be fine. Once in the office, the dealer flees. Go out the door and down the stairs here, then out the portal on the east wall. There you see the guy run away in a truck. Grab the car and follow him. He will smash things and cars will drive around crazy, while barrels fall out of the back of the truck. Keep firing at it until he stops and gets out. Kill him and collect the money. Now bring Phil back to Tudor and step into the arrow. You are done and you are rich!
Niko calls Roman and he is happy about it. Pegorino calls later too and he is happy as well.
A bit later Roman tells you he's getting married tomorrow. The next day, Roman calls you around noon for the wedding.
Mr. & Mrs. Bellic
Go to the yellow blip, thats the church and step into the arrow. After the ceremony, a hit man wants to kill Niko. He averts being shot, but the trigger gets pulled anyways. After Niko kills the guy, he realizes the bullet hit Roman and killed him. Mallorie is a widow. LJ tells you to leave and so you do. Niko wakes up in his safe house in Bohan and mourns the loss of Roman.
LJ sends him a text that he is tracking the thugs down.
A Revenger's Tragedy
This is a good moment to grab some weapons and armor. LJ calls Niko a bit later, he has struck paydirt. He sits in a vehicle in Alderney City, go over there and enter the vehicle. Some of Pegorino's guys come out in an SUV. Forget about shooting them, just follow. They go on to the Freeway to the south and stays on it. He changes lane to the other side (and you should follow that). When the Freeway curves straight to the east again, he gets off the ramp on the wrong side and drives north in Alderney. Just keep following, don't try to ram or kill them. they will lead you to an underpass at the northern most side, at the old casino. There are a lot of guys out there behind the cars and a couple up to your right. Kill them all then enter the building where the last guys were. In there is one guy on the stairs to the left and one in the back a bit higher up. The rest are spread on the ground floor. With them all dead go inside deeper and to the left. Dimitri kills Pegorino, and makes a run for it. Just go up the stairs, shoot them open and kill the two guys on the roof here. Outside turn right and kill the two waiting up there. Go down the ladder to the north and run towards the blip, which is a boat. Dimitri will take off in a helicopter and shoot rockets at you. Just run to the boat and ignore him. Now follow the helicopter around the coast. LJ appears with another chopper. Drive the boat in the yellow marker under him and Niko jumps over. Now tap the button wildly to get into it. Dimitri makes a run for it over Algonquin and then curves south over Broker and back over Algonquin. Dimitri gets a lucky shot in and both helicopters are on fire. They slowly land on the Happiness Island. Dimitri makes a run again. Follow him around the island to the north, killing his goons and if you have to the police as well. On the north side Dimitri makes a last stand. Time for him to die. Kill him and you are done.
End of the Story
Niko stands on Happiness Island and says "So this is what the dream feels like, this is the vitory we longed for". This concludes the story of Grand Theft Auto IV.
