Versions [VER1]

Version 1.51 - Got Chungarunga's name wrong the first time around.  Since he is 
-the- major contributor to this FAQ, I had to straighten that out.  Incredibly 
enough, Chungarunga managed to beat this game on the PS3 version without any 
kills.  Go to the PS3 GTA4 boards (not the social ones) and search for 
crimeless.  He has typed out all his strategies there, which I will verify work 
with the XBOX 360.

Version 1.50 - Second version with these crime results at the end of the 
main storyline.  I posted a theoretical minimum crime using Chungarunga's 
methods that he has used in the PS3 version in the Final Thoughts section.  I 
quoted his methods and should be considered required reading if you are a 
purist for this challenge =]

Further credit goes to Max_Power_9999 Which helped me with Bleed out for his 
call for backup solution, as well as Jamaican Heat for his car explosion 
method for killing targets without it counting against me.  These methods 
undoubtedly will help serve future missions as well.  Credit to LancetJades 
for pointing me in the right direction for the pacifist mission, as well as 
his contributions towards the community.

Anyhoo, this version 1.50 ending stats:

PEOPLE KILLED: 42
CARS STOLEN: 0
BIKES STOLEN: 0
BOATS STOLEN: 4
HELICOPTERS STOLEN: 1
STARS ATTAINED: 34
PEOPLE RUN DOWN: 0
FIRES STARTED: 0
CRIMINALS KILLED: 0

Specifically, the following missions were improved upon.

Mission 4: Bleed Out - 2 less kills
Mission 11: Jamaican Heat - 3 less kills
Mission 12: Concrete Jungle - 1 less kill
Mission 16: Final Destination - 1 less kill
Mission 17: No Love Lost - 1 less kill
Mission 21: Search and Delete - 1 less kill
Mission 25: Out of the Closet - 1 less kill
Mission 31: The Puerto Rican Connection - 2 less kills
Mission 34: Deconstruction for Beginners - 1 less kill
Mission 35: Ruff Rider - 1 less kill
Mission 36: Undress to Kill - 2 less kills
Mission 38: Call and Collect - 1 less kill
Mission 45: Wrong is Right - 1 less kill
Mission 48: Waste not Want Knots - 1 less kill
Mission 55: No Way on the Subway - 1 less kill
Mission 58: Union Drive - 2 less kills
Mission 63: Babysitting - 2 less fires started 
Mission 65: Blood Brothers - 1 less kill
Mission 67: Undertaker - 2 less stars attained
Mission 69: Pegorino's Pride - 5 less kills
Mission 72: Payback - 3 less kills, 2 less stars attained


I also added a checklist for specific things you will need to complete each 
mission properly, such as a vehicle, weapon, and if you need Dwayne's 
ability.  The general strategies section was updated and improved upon.

=============================================================================
 
Version 1.00 - First version with these crime results at the end of the main 
storyline.

BIKES STOLEN: 0
BOATS STOLEN: 4
HELICOPTERS STOLEN: 1

Forward [FOR1]

So you've done everything there is to do in Liberty City. You've seen both 
endings, got that elusive %100, and have played multiplayer until your eyes 
bled.  This challenge will make you rethink the most fundamental aspects of 
the game.  The rules are pretty simple; basically don't do anything that 
would show up on the crime page in the stats category.  You can't murder 
innocent people, you can't steal any vehicles, and you can't even tap people 
with your car.  There will be instances where you are forced to kill somebody 
or attract the attention of the police due to the nature of the mission, and 
those will be addressed in this FAQ.  This challenge is pretty much for the 
hardcore GTA4 player that could use a fresh perspective on the game, similar 
to a low level challenge for RPGs.

The inspiration for this challenge came when I noticed that many people 
didn't die if I shot them just enough times and didn't get a headshot.  I 
theorized that perhaps there was an achievement awarded if Niko didn't get 
too much blood on his hands - perhaps even an alternate ending.  Pretty thin 
evidence, but I wanted to see how far I could push the envelope.  Would it be 
possible to beat this game without committing any crime..'  I had to know, so 
I picked up a controller and got to work.  It ended up being one of the more 
rewarding challenges I have ever attempted.

Prerequisites: You should have beaten this game at least once before 
attempting this challenge.   

IMPORTANT:  I recommend attempting this challenge while meeting or beating 
the stats I post before reading the strategies and methods I used for any 
given mission.  Hopefully this will generate unique ways to beat missions 
that I haven't considered.  If you can beat a particular mission with less 
crime please E-mail me!  I always give credit where credit is due.  
Micskill@gmail.com

Obviously this is about fun, however.  If this is your first run I might 
recommend setting a goal.  Less than seventy-five kills and forty-five stars 
is what I would recommend for a true beginner to this type of game.  After 
the first run, try under fifty and less than thirty-six stars.  You can 
attempt to replicate (or break, as Chungarunga did) the guide I have here, 
but if you haven't done this before...  Well... Prepare for the challenge of 
your life.

I'll post the stats you should have before proceeding to the next mission.  
Of course, you can do whatever you want, but the purpose of this challenge is 
to aim for the least amount of crime possible.  

****** Overview on the important stats ***** [STA1]

TIMES CHEATED:  ALWAYS ZERO.  NO CHEATING!

PEOPLE KILLED:  This is found under the 'general' category and should not be 
confused with kills since last save under the 'crimes' category.  There will 
be times when Niko has to shed blood in order to progress.  However, Niko can 
only kill when he absolutely has to.

CARS STOLEN: Should remain at zero throughout the game.  Storyline missions 
that require you to obtain certain cars don't count against this stat.  If 
point a gun at somebody when they are in a car they will usually run away.  
If you take the car at this point the game will register it as a steal.

BIKES STOLEN: Should remain at zero throughout the game.

BOATS STOLEN: You will have to steal four of these to progress.

HELICOPTERS STOLEN: You will steal one of this in one of the U. L. Paper 
missions.

STARS ATTAINED: You will get quite a few of these but no more than thirty 
eight.

PEOPLE RUN DOWN: Should remain at zero throughout the game.  This stat goes 
up every time you touch somebody with a car you are in (including cabs).

FIRES STARTED: One mission you will be required to blow up a helicopter, 
which results in two fires.

CRIMINALS KILLED: Should remain at zero throughout the game.  This is the 
stat used when you are hunting criminals with a police vehicle.

Below the crimes I will list any prerequisites for the mission, such as a 
weapon or vehicle.

=======================================================================


***** General Strategies *****

MULTIPLE SAVES:  TURN OFF AUTOSAVE FIRST.  You don't want to accidentally 
ruin all your progress just because you tapped a pedestrian and the game 
autosaved.  Keep about four or five save slots handy and alternating just in 
case you forgot to check your stats and accidentally saved with some unneeded 
crimes committed. Save often because you will be restarting often.

GTA4 MAP:  IGN has a user-made map that has all important locations, 
including road names.  Works similar to googlemaps.  Learn it.  Love it.
http://grandtheftauto.ign.com/maps/1/Liberty-City-Map

PREVENTING VEHICLE CRIMES: Unless you're in a chase, drive slowly.  If you 
hit somebody, it counts as a crime.  No matter how lightly you touch someone 
it still counts against you in the 'people knocked down' category and we need 
to keep this at zero.  Occasionally you'll notice someone diving out of the 
way, and you may think you tapped them, but this doesn't count against you.  
Make sure you check the stats page before you prematurely restart.

You can hit cars mostly without consequence, but if you hit a police vehicle 
too hard you'll get some unwanted stars and be forced to restart (if the 
police weren't chasing you already).

Sometimes you'll find people chasing you when you get into a car.  If they 
grab onto the handle before you take off, you'll get hit with a 'people 
knocked over' crime which means you have to restart.  You pretty much have to 
juke their AI to make sure this doesn't happen.  You can run away and then 
run sprint back to your car, or you can jump over some barriers (like fences) 
which tricks them with a degree of reliability.  Sometimes there will be 
people in front of you when you are in a hurry, and you will have to reverse 
in these situations.  Hit the right analogue stick inward to see in your 
review window and adjust accordingly.  If you get enough speed you can hit 
the handbrake and turn the wheel sharply to whip the car around while keeping 
its momentum.  This is a good move to learn for this particular challenge, 
especially when people are running after your car.

CABS:  The easy way to travel.  If you see a cab and are close enough to it 
you can tap the left shoulder button to hail the cab, and it will stop for 
you.  You then hold the Y button (which will put you in the backseat instead 
of jacking it) to get in the cab.  Any other people in the cab will get out 
for you (or you can toss them out without penalty.  Be mindful if you are in 
the cab and it hits anybody, which will count as a 'people run down' crime 
and you will have to restart.  This usually happens if you make the cabbie 
rush, so I recommend just skipping the sequence even though it costs more.  
You can set a waypoint and direct the cab driver there in addition to any 
preset location on the map.  Once you reach your destination, it's usually 
best to hail the cab again before you trigger any cut scenes so it's ready 
for you.

KILLING:  Unfortunately there are some people you have to kill in order to 
progress.  On certain missions, however, you can blast someone until they 
drop their weapon, but will still writhe around on the ground.  This is 
easiest to do with a pistol or SMG, just don't go for a headshot.  You can 
zoom in, especially with an assault rifle, by pushing in the right analog 
stick while targeting somebody.  Incapacitating them in this way means you 
can complete some missions (or just get rid of somebody annoying) without 
jeopardizing Niko's conscience and getting unnecessary kills.  When in a 
firefight, attempt to lock on and look around (lock cycling) to find out 
where your targets are.

On some missions, however, you can't blast them to unconsciousness.  You have 
a few options.  If an enemy is on a ladder or next to a ledge, they will 
often fall off and die without it counting against you.  Another option is to 
ram a car until it is on fire and then Park it next to a target and watch 
them explode.  Lastly, sometimes you can call others to do the deed for you.  
Calling the police from your cell phone works, but calling backup from the 
police car is faster and more effective.  Once you get Dwayne's special 
ability, calling him to get his friends to help you is the best option 
(although you can call the police as well.)  Some people that you have to 
kill can be gunned to low health and then shoved into the pavement which 
causes their demise, yet doesn't count against you (this method doesn't work 
on everybody however).  I was aware of this method for awhile, but some dudes 
on the PS3 boards (Chungarunga, Infernus, Infernodragon have coined the term 
"walking" them to death.  Anytime you can't avoid killing someone, this guide 
will let you know who you absolutely must kill in order to progress.

EXPLODING CAR METHOD:  Some special notes about using wrecking a car to the 
point it is on fire in order to explode targets.  There are four visual 
phases of car damage you can put your car through.  You can ram into objects 
with a car until it has less than about %50 health left, at which point you 
will see a light gray smoke.  After you ram a few more objects, you will see 
a thicker gray smoke from the hood.  An accident or two later, you will see 
thick black smoke.  Another couple of hits will put the car on fire, and six 
seconds later a couple more fires will appear on the car automatically.  Six 
seconds after that it will explode.  Here is a approximate chart.

~%50 damage: thin grey smoke
~%80 damage: thick gray smoke
~%90 damage: thick black smoke
%100 damage: light fire
More damage or six seconds later: more fire
Twelve total seconds (or more damage):  Boom.
Note that it is possible to go from thick gray smoke directly to fire if you 
get into ram into an object at high speeds.  

OBTAINING CARS:  Since stealing is not allowed, getting cars to drive by non-
conventional methods is required.  The easiest way to get cars is by doing 
story missions.  Some cars are simply given to you, and you can save them.  
Another method is to point a gun at a car, and after the driver runs off, you 
can push that car with another car into one of your parking spots.  A third 
method is to block traffic (by holding up cars with a gun) so other cars have 
to go around and drive through your parking place.  When they are in the 
right position, hold that car up and when the driver leaves quickly save.  If 
you aren't fast enough other cars will plow through and knock the car you 
want out of position.  Be aware any cars obtained that you didn't 'own' 
previously will be considered stolen until you save and reload.

Once you get Dwayne's special ability, you can call for reinforcements and 
take their car without it being considered stolen.  However, sometimes two 
guys will run over to you instead of bringing a ride.

It may be possible to call 911 and push a police car into a save spot with 
this method as well.  If you need a police car, one of the main storyline 
missions near the beginning will provide you with some.  The closest one is 
north a couple blocks from Roman's apartment on the left side of the street.  
Take one of your cars and nudge it into the parking area in front of Roman's 
apartment if you want it.

Every so often it would behoove you to put a couple cars at your safe houses 
for future missions.  It's a tedious procedural matter, but you will thank 
yourself later.  Also, if your default save location should be the Middle 
Park East safe house, I've never run out of there without a few cabs going 
by.

AMBULANCE:  Some missions will involve extended firefights, such as Hostile 
Negation.  You can dial for ambulances in these situations and they'll heal 
you for a somewhat hefty fee.

BODY ARMOR: Any mission that puts you in a long firefight means you should 
get body armor and save first.

=======================================================================


THE MAIN STORLYINE:  The meat of the game and this FAQ.  Before each mission 
your stats should match (or preferably be less than) the ones listed.

Mission 1: The Cousins Bellic [ROM1]

PEOPLE KILLED: 0 
CARS STOLEN: 0
BIKES STOLEN: 0
BOATS STOLEN: 0
HELICOPTERS STOLEN: 0
STARS ATTAINED: 0
PEOPLE RUN DOWN: 0
FIRES STARTED: 0
CRIMINALS KILLED: 0

CAR: provided
WEAPONS: none
DWAYNE'S ABILITY: no

This is the easiest mission, but you may end up restarting this one a couple 
times.  Basically you have to get used to the idea of not being able to hit 
people with your car, even if it's a light tap, because it will cause the 
people run down stat to go up.  'Run down' is probably not the most legal 
term for a crime, but if it's considered a crime on the stats page in GTA4, 
that's good enough for me.  Get used to driving slower then you may be used 
to, and learn to avoid sidewalks.  Not hitting people with your car may very 
well be the hardest part of this challenge, however if you stay on the road, 
the pedestrians generally don't get in your way.  Once you make your way to 
Roman's 'mansion', check your stats to make sure you haven't killed anybody 
(on the general stats page) or committed any other crimes (on the crimes 
page).  Make a habit of this before you save. It's also recommended that you 
should be allocating multiple slots to this challenge anyway.

=======================================================================


Mission 2: It's your call [ROM2]

PEOPLE KILLED: 0 
CARS STOLEN: 0
BIKES STOLEN: 0
BOATS STOLEN: 0
HELICOPTERS STOLEN: 0
STARS ATTAINED: 0
PEOPLE RUN DOWN: 0
FIRES STARTED: 0
CRIMINALS KILLED: 0

CAR: provided
WEAPONS: none
DWAYNE'S ABILITY: no

Alright, the second Roman mission is up at bat.  If you're like me, your 
first inclination was to find the closest parked car and gun it to Roman's 
cab depot.  Unfortunately, stealing even parked cars is still stealing (in 
most cases), and is reflected as such on the crimes page under statistics.  
You do have the option of taking a cab but be aware that you don't have much 
money at this point (and it's difficult to get money when you can't kill 
people whimsically).  Additionally, if the cab driver hits someone it will 
count against you and you will have to restart.  I suggest taking a brisk jog 
to Roman's, where you will shortly get his vehicle.

This mission requires you to take Roman "The Janitor" to his gambling spot.  
Drive carefully and this should be an uneventful trip.  When you get there 
you will learn how to use a cell phone (do they not have cell phones in 
Eastern Europe..') and after maybe thirty seconds some thugs will show up.  
Call Roman and get ready for your first Pacifist Niko chase.

Once Roman climbs into his car you will start getting shot at.  Ideally they 
won't take out one of your tires. They will stop shooting once you drive 
little more then two blocks away.  The tough part of this mission is all the 
pedestrians go crazy when bullets start flying, and it makes them run around 
erratically.  If there are people running in front of you, I suggest just 
stopping your car and waiting for them to run away, even if it means taking a 
few bullets.  Niko is pretty tough, it's important not to panic and drive 
faster than you have to and then accidentally tapping some schmuck.

A reminder: No matter how lightly you touch someone it still counts against 
you in the 'people knocked down' category and we need to keep this at zero.  
Occasionally you'll notice someone diving out of the way, and you may think 
you tapped them but this doesn't count.  Make sure you check the stats page 
before you prematurely restart.

Once you don't hear any more bullets it probably means you aren't being 
chased and you can slow down to a comfortable speed.  Make your way back to 
Roman's apartment.  Park his car in the designated parking area (there is a 
rectangular box on the street next to the sidewalk).  You can keep up to two 
cars here that will stay put if you die, turn off your X-box or really 
anything.

Check your stats to make sure there are no crimes and save - in a different 
slot preferably.

=======================================================================


Mission 3: Three's a crowd [ROM3]

PEOPLE KILLED: 0 
CARS STOLEN: 0
BIKES STOLEN: 0
BOATS STOLEN: 0
HELICOPTERS STOLEN: 0
STARS ATTAINED: 0
PEOPLE RUN DOWN: 0
FIRES STARTED: 0
CRIMINALS KILLED: 0

CAR: provided
WEAPONS: none
DWAYNE'S ABILITY: no

This mission you are supposed to drive Malorie and her friend Michelle at 
Malorie's place, and then change your clothes.  Leave Roman's car there and 
approach his cab station from the south on Iroqouis Avenue.  Use this site if 
you need help with street names: 

http://grandtheftauto.ign.com/maps/1/Liberty-City-Map

You should notice the 'friend' icon pop up on your minimap.  Generally these 
are short encounters/missions that give you a few bucks here and there.  This 
particular one requires no effort so walk up to the coked out dude (his name 
is Brian) and enjoy the berating you receive (and more importantly the $100).  
This encounter will probably triple your net worth at this point in the game.  
Continue jogging to Roman's cab depot.

Once you are here, he'll direct you to pick up the girls and give you another 
one of his cars.  Don't worry; the first car he gave you is still at his 
apartment.  Drive carefully and pick up Malorie and Michelle.  Once you drop 
them off, head over to the clothes icon, which thankfully is right next to 
the save point on this island.  Park your new car in the designated parking 
place next to the first one, and sprint over to the clothes shop.  First 
clothing item is free and is all that is required for this mission, so pick 
up whatever you fancy.  I recommend saving your meager funds for things more 
important then clothes though... Like bullets and cab fair.

Once your done, check your stats, then go save.

=======================================================================

Mission 4: Bleed Out [ROM4]

This mission initially starts out as a dating mission but you have the option 
of saving Roman instead of going on the date, which I recommend doing.  If 
you decide to do the date first, skip down to Mission 5 and then come back up 
here after you complete that one.  I think it's probably better to save Roman 
first because he will like you more, and you can call for free cabs if you 
get enough respect and he likes you.  Roman won't give you the call to save 
him unless you get close to Michelle's, so hop into one of his cars, cruise 
over there, and when he calls you turn around (carefully!) and head back to 
his apartment.  Technically you haven't started either mission yet, so park 
the car and save (after checking stats of course).

UPDATE: It is possible to take out the two guys attacking Roman.  Bring a 
police car to Roman's location (there is one north of his safe house that you 
can push into the parking place, remember to save and load when you get it 
into the right area).  Make sure to drive the cruiser into the basketball 
court or it will vanish.  After a short scene, turn around and sprint to the 
police car and drive it near the street.  Use the left trigger to access the 
police terminal and call for police backup.  Get out of the car and let the 
two guys attack you, and the police will blow them away.

OBSOLETE: Even though the game advances 6 hours when you save/sleep, Roman is 
still getting a beat down.  Jog over to his location.  Here you are forced to 
kill two of Dardan's thugs.  As far as I know you are forced to kill them, 
but you're doing it for your family so it's legit for the purposes of this 
challenge.  These should be your first two kills.

Dardan happens to be watching you and attempts to flee after you take out his 
two cronies.  Hop into another one of Roman's cars and go after him.  You 
don't have to floor it, and if you are going anywhere near top speed while 
trying to take a corner you are bound to hit somebody.  It's generally good 
not to be extremely close to cars you are chasing anyway because they tend to 
make abrupt turns.  You shouldn't have a gun at this point, but if you do 
don't shoot at his tires because it will make all the pedestrians go crazy.  
I also think this part is scripted so that it's impossible to kill him until 
the end of the chase.  Furthermore, even if it is possible to kill him, if 
you wait until the end of the chase and cause him to fall into the water, it 
doesn't register as a kill.  After you chase him to the sugar factory, disarm 
him and knife him until he crawls over to the window, then hit him one more 
time to get him to fall in the water.  Personally I almost died on this 
mission because I forgot how to melee properly, so use the in game 
instructions to counter and disarm.  I don't think it's possible to 
accidentally kill him before knocking him into the water, so don't concern 
yourself with that.

UPDATE: Let Dardan stumble towards the window after you stab him a couple 
times, then when he stops hit him one more time and he will tumble into the 
water, which won't count against you.

Once Dardan is finished, go back to Roman's car and drive carefully back to 
his cab depot.  Roman will leave his car with you, so you can use it to drive 
back to his apartment.  This will leave you with three of his cars for now, 
but be mindful you can only save two permanently.  Check your stats and Save.

This mission you are required to take Michelle out on a date.  She has her 
own car but is kind of far away so you can take Roman's 3rd car or cab it 
over to Michelle's.  Once there ditch Roman's car (or the cab) and drive her 
to the carnival.  Since it's closed you then have to drive over to the 
bowling alley.  There tend to be a lot of pedestrians in this area so be very 
careful, the horn can be useful here.  Once you get close enough feel free to 
get out and run so you don't have to worry about hitting anybody, but 
remember where you parked as you need to keep Michelle's car for the ride 
back.  Play bowling if you wish, you won't fail the mission if you quit right 
away.

After you are done, go back to Michelle's car and drop her off at her place.  
She won't mind if you keep her car so you can keep it and replace one of 
Roman's cars or take a cab back to the apartment.  I'm not certain which car 
is superior for driving, but eventually you are going to collect a couple 
police vehicles so don't sweat the decision too much.

However way you get back to the apartment, check your stats and save.

The Roman missions will open back up at this point.  You may also start 
getting calls from Roman to hang out, which you can do if you want to get his 
special ability to get a cab at any time.

This mission you are asked to pick up one of Roman's 'regulars' Jermaine.  
You can bring one of your two cars, but if you decide to jog or take a cab 
there will be one given to you for this mission - Roman's fourth car for 
anybody who wasn't counting.  Drive up to Jermaine and honk to get him in 
your car.  This is a longer drive then usual so don't get distracted by the 
radio and accidentally hit somebody.

He'll want you to take a trip to pick up some of his merchandise, so drive 
carefully to his spot.  It'll turn out to be a sting and you'll get your 
first two stars on the crime page.  This is an unavoidable and scripted 
event, but if anybody knows a bug or glitch feel free to E-mail me.  Once the 
police chase is on, keep your cool and flee the immediate area.  You can try 
to work your way to the spray shop or just gun it down a road.  When fleeing 
the police, keep an eye on your minimap, it'll show you if a cop car spawns 
in front of you.  When this happens, try turning onto another road or side 
alley, or simply stop if you are out of the other cops' site range.

After that excitement, check and make sure you didn't hit anybody or commit 
any other crimes (other than the unavoidable two stars).  Drop off Jermaine, 
and then head back to the apartment.  On the way back you should get a call 
from Vlad demanding that you work for him to help repay Roman's dept.  Save 
and take a deep breath, there is a lot of game to go.

Before starting this mission you'll notice Brian is back on Crockett Avenue, 
or south a block and to the West of the apartment.  If you feel like getting 
a couple hundred bucks go to Brian and give him a ride to help feed his 
addiction.

You have a couple of options at this point but Vlad is closer.  Vlad will 
want you to teach a guy a lesson because he won't pay him money he feels he 
is owed.  The game teaches you about cabs at this point, I recommend taking a 
cab since you should have a bit of cash by now.  You should always be 
skipping the ride sequence so the cabbie doesn't hit anybody.  You'll get to 
the shop and the game will point you to a few bricks.  Pick a brick up and 
lob it at the window to the left of the entrance.  Just like throwing a 
grenade more or less.  If you miss go back and get another brick.  Once you 
smash the window the guy will give you Vlad's money without incident.

You'll notice you're pretty far from home (unless you brought one of Roman's 
cars or another ride) so run back south until you see a cab and hail it.  
Talk to Vlad if the mission isn't over, check your stats, then run across the 
street and save.  Done and done.

"You see a cop, you don't know me." - Vlad  
"I see anybody I don't know you." - Niko.

Hop over to Vlad's favorite bar and fire up another Get-Vlad's-Money mission.  
Jog or take a cab over to the laundromat.  Before you go in, take a second to 
go around back and notice a couple cars next to a van.  This is where the guy 
you are looking for is going to flee.  More importantly, these cars can be 
stolen without it counting as a crime (check your stats to make sure!).  Mark 
this area; it's below Gibson Street and directly under a highway.  If you 
don't have two cars (or are tired of Roman's cars) feel free to grab the 
Blista or the Sentinel.  Touching the van will cause the mission to fail as 
the owner will freak out and flee through the front.  If you decide to take a 
car now this is actually good, because once you fail the mission you can save 
your game after taking a car.  You can also keep one of the cars by starting 
the mission by entering the laundromat main entrance, and stealing on of 
those cars and just keeping it after the mission is over.

Once you're done checking out the layout and perhaps grabbing a new car, go 
around to the front of the laundromat as indicated on your map.  When you go 
in to confront the guy, he'll take off so sprint after him.  Grab either car 
as it still shouldn't negatively effect your crime stats (check to make sure 
of course) and chase after him.  Essentially just ram him until he stops and 
gives you money, its not as difficult as the police chase a couple missions 
ago.  The only real challenge is hotwiring the car and getting the car out of 
the back lot before he gets too far away.  You can probably get one of those 
cars in a good position to chase him before starting the chase scene if you 
are having trouble.  Once you are done with that guy, drive back to your 
apartment, check your stats and save.

The next Vlad mission is somwhat difficult to pull off without committing any 
crimes.  First the game will teach you how to use the subway, and if you're 
like me this will be the last time you use it.  Take the subway (you can skip 
the ride sequence) and jog down the stairs and across the street to the guy 
washing his car.  Take note of a fence on your right as you approach and also 
of the other guy close to the car.  The first guy will address you as you get 
closer and the game will teach you how to stun him.  Look around and make 
sure there aren't any police walking around because if you hit him in their 
line of site you'll get an unwanted star.  Once you feel safe stun the guy, 
and his buddy will start to attack you.  Don't try and jack the car and drive 
off with him close to you because he'll grab the door handle and you'll get 
nailed with a 'people run down' crime.  Instead, run back towards the fence 
and climb over the middle of it.  The second guy should be momentarily 
baffled at your physical prowess and stand there for half a second and then 
decide to run around the fence to get to you.  If he runs in an undesirable 
direction that won't allow you to shake him, simply hop the fence again.  
Sprint back to the car you are supposed to steal (which doesn't count against 
you again) and hop in.  If you're lucky, the first guy's body may have 
vanished if you ran far enough away from it, if you're not lucky you will 
have to back up so you don't run him over.

You are pretty far from home, so you should be extra careful because you 
don't want to have to restart this mission.  Once you get the car to the 
designated lockup, take a cab back to Roman's apartment.  Check your stats 
and save.

This is the last Vlad mission - or at least the last mission you are working 
for Vlad.  It's also the toughest chase scene up to this point.  Your 
directive is to kill some dude named Ivan.  He's at Roman's cab depot, and 
you're going to need wheels for this one.  Take one of your cars over there 
and he'll be on his way out in his car.  You may have to take some chances as 
he seems a bit faster then the other chases.  This also is a longer chase - 
almost two minutes long.  Near the end of this there will be a lot of 
construction which means you may have to drive up on the sidewalk, but be 
very careful not to hit anybody.  The horn may help here.

Once you notice Ivan is out of the car he'll probably be halfway up the 
ladder onto some rooftops.  Continue the chase (Y button climbs).  If it 
seems like you hit a dead end, look for a ladder.  You'll make some very 
cinematic jumps over the rooftops.  They aren't too difficult; just make sure 
you jump a full step before you reach the edge to give Niko time to plant his 
legs.  After maybe three jumps you'll have Ivan cornered and you'll have the 
option to kill him.  Given the nature of this challenge, you should let him 
live.  That should complete the mission; you can take some stairs down to 
street level or simply jump off.  Whether you die or survive, take a cab to 
the apartment.  You can try and make your way back to your car if you choose, 
but as long as you have one left you are in good shape.

Check your stats to make sure you haven't committed any crimes.  Save.

For this mission you are required by Roman to pick up Little Jacob.  'Pick 
up' being the operative phrase, you'll need a car, so hopefully you have one 
left.  UPDATE: You can use Roman's cab at his depot, not considered a steal.  

UPDATE: Once you scoop up Jacob, he'll give you a piece.  The next part is a 
bit tedious but necessary.  Ram into mobile objects (such as other cars but 
not the police).  If you smash into buildings your car may stop moving and 
you need it.  Once the car is smoking be a smash it up a bit more until you 
see black smoke, then go to the yellow marker.  If your car is on fire before 
you enter the marker it won't work and you'll be forced to restart.  Once 
your car is smoking black and you go to the meeting, go to the designated 
watch point.  Once the deal goes bad blast the three guys until they are near 
death.  Now go back to your smoking car and smash it in the alley Austin 
Power's style until its on fire.  Be careful not to leave the alley or Jacob 
will immediately die.  Once the car is on fire, park it in the middle of the 
three enemies and sprint away.  You have about ten seconds to do this which 
is enough time but not much room for error.  Once they explode a guy will 
appear on the roof.  Pop him once and watch him plummet.  You shouldn't have 
any kills.

OBSOLETE: One of them on the left tends to focus his shots on you so take him 
out first, Little Jacob is very durable.  Kill the other two in any way you 
see fit.  One more guy will appear on the roof after this, you can shoot him 
a couple times and he'll fall off but it won't register as a kill.  Once that 
business is done take Little Jacob where he wants to go, although your car 
may have teleported from where you parked it to the entrance of the alley.

Make your way back to the apartment, park your car, check your stats (you 
shouldn't have any kills) and save.  You now have a gun to wave around, but 
even if you force someone out of their car by pointing a gun at them, if you 
get in and drive it the game will register it as a stolen car.  You can, 
however push their car in your parking space or cause a traffic jam and point 
a gun at somebody who parked in front of one of your safe houses.  If you 
save and load after that it is yours.

This one is a two-parter.  Cab it over to Little Jacob's, and he'll give you 
the keys to his beamer.  He'll direct you over to another deal.  Be aware you 
have to kill seven(!) people this mission, but if Roman wants Niko to help 
Little Jacob, Niko will abide.  He is a bit suspicious and directs you to a 
back alley in case the deal goes sour.

UPDATE:  It would appear one of these guys can be blasted down without 
getting killed.  The guy on the stairs occasionally falls to his death, you 
can push him up or try and shoot him up the stairs first before tapping his 
leg.  The police don't seem to do any damage, although it is probably 
possible to use the exploding car method on the first three guys that come 
out of the alley...

The deal does indeed go sour, and three dudes will sprint out the back.  
Drive forward to get close (be careful not to hit them with your car) and hop 
out.  It's easier to gun them down on foot, and for some reason it seems like 
shooting from your car attracts police attention more readily.  They don't 
pose much of a threat but occasionally someone not involved in the mission 
will blast you with a submachine gun. 

Once those three are dead, go back to your car and grab Jacob.  He's not too 
happy about the incident.  He'll direct you to a house, drive carefully over 
there in case pedestrians are running around due to the gunfire.

Once you're here, follow the in-game instructions to use cover.  There are 
four guys, at least one has a shotty so don't run and gun it.  Little Jacob 
doesn't really do any damage so don't count on him to get the blood off your 
hands.  This should be a pretty easy firefight for someone who has beaten the 
game.  After you take out all four guys, drop Jacob off with his crew.  He 
won't mind if you keep his car.  

Go back to your apartment and park Jacob's car.  Check your stats.  You 
should have six kills at this point.  Save.

"I'm looking for someone..." - Niko

The Roman mission should be the only one available to you at this point.  He 
suspects his girlfriend is cheating on him with Vlad, so Niko naturally wants 
to kill him.  You can take a car up there if you like.  Or don't, Roman has 
one of his many cabs in the garage.  Either way you're going to be picking up 
some much nicer and faster cars from mission 14.  Make sure you have Roman's 
car or one of your own before you go to Vlad's bar and have it face north.  
Once you step in there will be a cut scene and Vlad will run out the door.  
Ignore his goons and sprint after them.  Vlad will be screeching off to the 
north by the time you go outside, so hurry into your car and chase him.  If 
you aren't fast enough one of the two goons may latch onto your door handle 
before you drive off, which will result in that painful 'people run down' 
increase, which means a restart.  A way to combat this is to keep open your 
car door before you step on the yellow beacon that leads into the bar, so you 
don't have to wait Niko's door opening animation.

Once the chase is on you'll find yourself racing to catch up to Vlad, but 
don't panic.  The chase will take about a minute, he is rather quick but pace 
your self and watch those pedestrians.  Don't bother opening fire.  He'll 
eventually drive near the water and you'll see a message at the bottom 
indicating Vlad is on foot.  Approach and get out of your car.  You are 
forced to execute him, but it won't increase your people killed stat.  Just 
make sure you have a pistol and do the execution properly.

I guess Vlad doesn't count as a person.

Give Roman a ride back and then go to your apartment.  Check the relevant 
stats and save.

This mission begins as a Roman mission, but you are actually going to do a 
job for Mr. Faustin.  Meet up with Roman any way you choose, if you bring a 
car you will lose it but don't worry, we'll be getting some better ones soon.  
After you get knocked out and Roman takes a bullet, you'll find yourself in 
front of Mr. Faustin's house on the southeastern portion of this island.  You 
need to find a police vehicle in order to pull over the vans, and the game 
pretty much delivers it to you on a silver platter.  Listen for the sound of 
sirens and sprint to the north.  A policeman will park haphazardly and sprint 
off into the distance.  You can nab his car without it being reflected as a 
crime.  Heck, even the coders of GTA4 consider the police car as more of a 
present rather than theft.

UPDATE:  Or you can just push the police car that is north of Roman's 
apartment into his spot if you need a cop car in the future.

Once you get the police car Dimitri will call you and you'll see some dots on 
your map, which represent the vans you are supposed to pull over.  Ignore 
them and drive to Roman's apartment and park the police car, there are some 
missions that require you to access the police database.  Even though the 
call from Dimitri implies that this is a time mission, you'll notice this is 
not the case.  Since you need to keep the police car that you got, you have 
to get yourself killed.  I ran around in traffic for a couple minutes, but 
maybe drowning or picking a fight is faster.  Just remember not to commit any 
crimes.  If you use the traffic method, once a car hits you sprint in front 
of it for approximately five seconds then double back, and it should knock 
you on your ass again.

Once you get yourself killed, take a cab from the hospital to your apartment 
and save (after checking your stats of course).  Go back to Roman, restart 
the mission and grab a second police vehicle.  Park it, kill yourself and 
save again.

The third time around with the police car, go towards the closest van.  Hit 
the left analogue stick inwards to use the sirens to pull it over.  Once you 
find the right van the passenger will start blasting you with a pistol.  
Ignore him and hop in the driver's side of the van and take it to the lockup.  
Usually the gunman will be busy shooting you instead of chasing you and 
attempting to pull you out, but if you want to be super safe you can give him 
the runaround before driving away.

After the van is in lockup you'll get some money which should mitigate the 
damage to your wallet from killing yourself (which shouldn't be much - Niko 
has some impressive health insurance).  Grab a cab to your apartment and bask 
in the glory of having two nice police vehicles.  Once you are done basking, 
check your stats to make sure you didn't mess up, and then save.

Take one of your cruisers over to Faustin's or grab a cab.  This mission is 
easy but does require a lot of running around, sometimes cabs are hard to 
find but driving around usually takes longer and you run the risk of hitting 
somebody during the mission.  Once you get there and After Mr. Faustin and 
Dimitri berate each others drug habits, you'll be charged with shaking down 
some associates at the porn shop.  Follow Dimitri's directions and point the 
gun at the guy on the right, then the guy in the middle.  Wait until you are 
directed to shoot the guy in the leg, and do so.  (No assault with a deadly 
weapon crime according to GTA!)  Dimitri will then want to take you shopping 
and shows you were the gun store is at.  Consider buying body armor, and then 
pick up the submachine gun.  After he buys a submachine gun for you, make 
your way back to Faustin's by your preferred method of travel.

Four-hundred dollars later, you'll have the option of going to Mr. Faustin's 
club or working with Little Jacob again.  Faustin's club is closer, but 
before we get ahead of ourselves let's go back to the apartment, check the 
usual stats and save.

UPDATE:  You can pass this mission without killing Petrovic's son.  After you 
accept the mission for Faustin, take a cab to the northern island.  Your 
target will be to your south up a set of stairs on your right, but don't 
climb those stairs.  Make Niko run south past that set of stairs and locate a 
different set of stairs on your left.  They ascend towards the north so if 
you may run past them.

UPDATE: Once you reach the top, there will be a cut scene and Petrovic's sun 
will take off down the stairs on the opposite side of the tracks.  Wait for 
the trains to pass by and sprint after him.  Ignore the guy with the 
submachine gun, it is unlikely he will kill you.  Follow your target down the 
stairs, and when he goes down the alley to the left look across from it and 
you will see a Vincent waiting for you.  Get in the car; it won't count as a 
steal.  Go after the target and ram him until his car goes on fire and he 
will die.  Two details to consider:  Don't flip over the car or your Lenny 
will get out and run, which makes your job much harder - the second detail 
being he may go past a toll which you must slow down and pay as to not 
attract police attention.  If your target hops out and goes on foot, you can 
try to ram into things until your car is on fire and have it blow up next to 
him.

UPDATE:  When it's all down you have the option to leave your new found car 
at a future safe house on the Northern Island which is on Joliet Avenue.  
Either way, take a cab home and make sure you don't have any new crimes, and 
then save.

OBSOLETE: This mission takes some pretty quick moves so get your game face 
on.  Jog over to Faustin's club or take a cab.  Don't take one of your 
cruisers because it will vanish after the cut scene in the club (UPDATE:  It 
actually just gets moved across the street.  After Dimitri and Faustin get 
into another lover's spat, you will directed to kill a spy named Lenny that 
is mostly the product of Faustin's imagination.  You'll be directed to the 
subway station on Guantanamo Avenue in South Boham, which is now open to you.  
Grab a cab; you don't want to make this drive because the mission is pretty 
easy to fail.  There will be an automated call to Faustin that you can 
interrupt without penalty.  Turn to the south and you should see some stairs 
leading up on the right sidewalk.  DON'T go up this set of stairs, instead 
run past them and locate the other set of stairs on the left side.  Walk by 
them and turn around and go up these stairs while readying a firearm of your 
choice.  The submachine gun Dimitri bought you is a great option here.  You 
can spot Lenny and take aim at him, he is the guy on the right, but a cut 
scene will initiate before you can shoot him.

OBSOLETE: After this scene some trains will fly into your vision and you have 
to cross over immediately.  Lenny's buddy will also start blasting you with a 
submachine gun, but do not fire back because you'll lose Lenny and you'll get 
police attention if you do.  Focus on Lenny and chase him down the stairs - 
jumping down the stairs tends to be a little faster even with Niko's rolling 
animation.  There should be a big enough window of time where you get close 
to the bottom of the steps but before Lenny turns a corner to his car where 
you can at least get a bullet in him.  If you can get one bullet it will 
cause him to collapse and you can finish him as you see fit.  If you fire too 
soon from the subway platform usually the police will hear the shot.

OBSOLETE: The reason you approach from the other side of the platform is 
because the trains get out of the way faster and Lenny's car is farther away 
from which gives you a much easier time of taking him out.  The dialogue also 
seems to be wittier during the cut scene as well.  Note that you now have 13 
kills for taking out Lenny.  C'est la vie.  You'll get a disturbing call 
about messing with the wrong guy who you deal with later, Mr. Petrovic.  
Roman should also send you a text requesting your presence at this point.  
Snag a cab back to Roman's apartment, make sure you didn't do anything worse 
then killing Lenny, and save.

CAR: Yes, preferably a fast one
WEAPONS: Yes
DWAYNE'S ABILITY: no

UPDATE: This mission can be completed without any new crimes.  Armor will 
probably help on this mission.  Take a car over to Faustin's, one of your 
cruisers would be a good idea since they are fast.  Once you accept the 
mission to kill his daughter's boyfriend, drive over to Firefly Island.  Once 
the Lost member takes off, run PAST the bike and get into the car you brought 
which will be on your right past the building.  Chase after him but run into 
him or shoot at him.  If you have a slow car you may need to be good with the 
brake handle to keep up with him.

UPDATE: After about a minute he's buddies will appear.  Follow them into the 
wooded area and blast all but the shotgun guy (your target) into submission.  
Once all but the boyfriend is incapacitated, drive away a bit and shoot up 
your car until it smokes black (note that shooting it too much means you will 
have caused a fire, which is a crime, and will force you to restart).  After 
the car is smoking, drive up to your target until you are about eight car 
lengths away and let him blast your car until it is on fire.  Park close to 
him and watch him combust.  You may die if you lost too much health, which is 
why armor is always a good idea.  If you accidentally gunned him down but 
didn't kill him, you can shoot the car you brought up until it is smoking 
then pack into the cement pillars supporting the highway until it goes on 
fire, then put it next to the boyfriend and watch him explode.  That method 
is actually preferable if you have low health.

OBSOLETE: Before this mission, make sure you have about 200 submachine gun 
bullets, and save once you do.  Shouldn't cost you more then $400 to get the 
ammo.  Cab it back to Faustin's house.  Faustin will assign you the task of 
finding his daughter while Dimitri is mysteriously absent.  Take a cab to 
Firefly Island (or just run there if you can't find one, Faustin lives in a 
very remote area).

OBSOLETE: This mission is going to take a lot of skill and luck.  Once the 
mission starts immediately get on the bike and gun it forward and turn right.  
You should be almost parallel to the biker before he turns right and takes 
off.  Ideally you will be close enough to blast him quite a bit on this 
straightaway.  It takes about 35-45 direct hits to knock this dude off, and 
most of those shots should happen on this straightaway.  After that it's a 
crapshoot, as he will start weaving around and traffic will take a lot of 
your attention.  There is a scripted event where a car will swing in and 
almost hit the biker shortly after the straightaway, and if you are too close 
(which is almost impossible) you will run into this car, so swerve around to 
the left of it.  If you put enough bullets in him previously, there is 
another small straightaway where you can concentrate plugging more bullets 
into him.  He can be killed at this point, but you have about twenty more 
seconds to kill him if you don't.  After a certain amount of time goes by a 
lot of his friends will show up on bikes, which results in unnecessary 
bloodshed.  Restart if this happens, one kill is ideal, which should put you 
at 14.

UPDATE: No new crimes! Good.  Save.

vehicle) to the internet cafe and follow the directions.  This should open up 
Mikhail Faustin's mission thread again.  You will also be able to steal cars 
for Brucie, which is a heinous crime.  Head back to the apartment first,

Mr. Faustin's missions should be available to you again.  Take a cab over 
there, this mission requires you to use a certain vehicle.  After a deep chat 
with his wife, Mikhail and Dimitri will arrive.  You will be instructed to 
obtain Mikhail's truck.  Cab it over there.  Once you grab the truck (not 
considered a stolen vehicle) you'll be instructed to take it to the northern 
island and that it is rigged with explosives.  Driving carefully shouldn't be 
a problem for you at this point even though it is a rather clunky vehicle.  
Remember to SLOW DOWN and pay the toll or else you'll get slapped with some 
unwanted stars and you will have to restart.  Park the truck in the garage 
and detonate it.  You won't be responsible for 'starting a fire' or any other 
crime in this cut scene.  After the explosion, quickly book it out of there 
by running south, the opposite direction of the fire trucks.  I believe if 
you hang around the fireman will call the police on you.  Once you get out of 
a certain range, you will be rewarded with $700.  Take a cab to the safe 
house, check your stats (no new crimes), and save.

DWAYNE'S ABILITY: no

At some point soon (if it hasn't happened already) you will get a text from 
Dimitri imploring you to have a chat, as well as Roman opening up the Brucie 
missions for you.  Jog over to Dimitri.  Due to the mission where you killed 
Petrovic's son, you are tricked into killing Mikhail Faustin.  You'll need a 
pistol for this mission so grab one if you don't have one or ran out of ammo 
for some reason.  Cab it over to Mr. Faustin's club.  You will get a text.  
Dimitri will leave you with some body armor to help with the mission on the 
side of the club (to the right of the entrance - if you read the text message 
it will show up on your map.)  You can head into the club through the front 
or you can go around the back and survey the exit that Mikhail will 
eventually run through.  Try to memorize this route and take note of the 
stairs.  Once you are satisfied, strut over to Mikhail Faustin and ready your 
pistol.

This mission may take a few tries, but if you have gotten to this point with 
the above stats, you can definitely complete it.  After a few words about 
Dimitri's and Faustin's character flaws, he will get up and run away while 
his henchmen attempt to fistfight you.  Ignore them and sprint after Mr. 
Faustin.  When you get close to him he'll direct his men to start blasting 
you, and they will from all angles.  Do not shoot them and keep sprinting 
after Mr. Faustin.  You should tend to run into these guys instead of around 
them.  Running into them usually stuns them temporarily so they don't shoot 
in you in the back as much.  Be aware, however, that if you stand next to 
them too long they will hit you with their guns and that directly affects 
your health, bypassing your body armor.  Anytime you have to run up stairs, 
jumping up them is generally quicker.  There will be one particular guy in 
the way of the stairs outside, but if you don't panic you can squeeze by him 
without too much trouble.  With the body armor and full health, you should be 
able to get to the landing on the roof with perhaps a fourth of your health 
left.  Resist the urge to start blasting Mr. Faustin immediately, and calmly 
walk up to him with your pistol.  He won't fire at you, so get close, take 
aim, and you will execute him, which does not count against your kill total.  
If you kill him any other way he'll end up being your fifteenth kill, which 
we do not want.

After he is dead his 'loyal henchmen' will vanish.  Get down however you 
please; suicide is an option if you can't find an efficient way down. Take a 
cab to Roman's apartment and check your stats to make sure everything is 
kosher.  Save and enjoy the feeling of beating one of the tougher missions to 
date.

WEAPONS: none
DWAYNE'S ABILITY: no

Remember those police cars you stole earlier?  Here is a mission that 
requires you to have one.  Take a police car over to Brucie's.  He'll tell 
you to whack someone who intends to testify.  Get back in your police car and 
after the call to Brucie you'll receive instructions on how to track Lyle 
Rivas.  After you follow the directions he'll be on your map.  He is close 
but there are a lot of pedestrians in this area so drive carefully.  Once you 
reach him he'll climb out the window and drive away and you will be in for 
about a three minute chase.  

Get back in your police car and chase him.  You can turn on your sirens but I 
think it just makes the chase harder as cars tend to stop abruptly when they 
are aware of you.  After getting within site of him, keep a leisurely 
distance.  Lyle tends to hit other cars and trucks making their actions 
erratic, so you want plenty of time to react.  There are a couple scripted 
events where Lyle will cause a truck to drop its contents, the most dangerous 
being the logs in the latter part of the chase.  There will also be a toll 
booth that he flies through, don't worry about slowing down because you don't 
have to pay tolls (at least not this one) while you are in a police vehicle.  
Most of the chase is on highways so pedestrians aren't an issue until the 
end, where he'll slow down quite a bit.  Hit him a few times and he'll go on 
foot.

UPDATE: You can take out Lyle without it counting against you.  When he hops 
out of his car punch him a few times (try to make sure there are no police 
are around) until he has a couple bars of health left.  After that you can 
chase him into traffic until a car hits him or run into him a few times.  
He'll eventually trip and fall and not get back up, and the mission will be 
over.

OBSOLETE: It is possible to blast him with your micro-SMG until the car is on 
fire, but he'll jump out and you have to kill him anyway.  Causing a car fire 
is frowned upon in this challenge since it is a crime.

After Lyle is dead, you'll get some decent money from Brucie.  Take a cab 
back to your safe house and make sure there are no new crimes, and save.

OBSOLETE: You may be inclined to take a cab back and save after this long 
chase, but it is recommended that you keep your cop car (you'll definitely 
need it if it's your last one).  Get back into the cruiser, drive carefully 
back to the apartment check your stats - you should only have one more kill - 
and save.

Back to Brucie, take a cab.  He wants you to steal Lyle's ride.  Not a 
problem, he won't be needing it.  Grab another cab to Lyle's car.  You'll 
find it in an alley, hop in.  This car isn't considered stolen according to 
the crime stats.

Once you are in you'll get surrounded by guys with cars and guns.  Gun it 
forward and turn left.  Slow down at this point, there is a guy on a bike 
that tends to come from your left.  Allow him to pass even if it means 
soaking a few bullets, because if you tap him off you'll get penalized with a 
'person run down' on the crime stats page.  The toughest part from here on 
out is avoiding the pedestrians.  All the gun fire makes people panic and run 
around like chickens with their head cut off.  Hopefully they won't hit one 
of your tires, if they do this mission is much tougher.  Just drive 
carefully, speed only on the straight-aways.

Once you get close enough to Brucie's garage, they will stop chasing you.  
Park it and enjoy the $3500 that you get.  Find another cab or sprint back to 
the apartment.  Check your stats and save.

The only missions available to you should be Little Jacob's.  Cab it over to 
his crib.  After almost taking a knife from Badman, he will instruct you to 
go to South Bohan and take care of another dealer, seen'  Take a cab over 
there.  You'll know who it is because he is very loud about his drug 
operations.  Follow him slowly (walk, don't run).  It actually is better to 
stay out of his line of site altogether, if you are too close Roman will call 
you and he'll start sprinting away.  If this happens, sprint after him, you 
can use your GPS mini map if you lose track of him.

Either way he will eventually jump a fence and head into an apartment 
building and go upstairs.  After four or five floors, you will be instructed 
to take out the dealer and his suppliers.  Do so, the cover system helps 
here.  You can also shoot doors open if you are not comfortable running into 
a room.  It is possible to blast these guys without killing them so use a 
pistol.  Once their weapon is dropped - you can tell by the red glow - stop 
targeting that person and drop somebody else.  After they are all 
incapacitated, Little Jacob will give you $250 - a mere pittance for getting 
in a firefight compared to what you just made by stealing a car.  The game 
may implore you to call Dimitri at this point, but don't.  Go back outside or 
(jump off the roof if you don't mind spending money on medical bills).  Grab 
a cab back home, check your stats to make sure no crimes were committed, and 
save as usual.

This mission will test your mettle.  Before you call Dimitri, go to the gun 
store and buy some SMG ammo until you have at least 400 bullets, as well as 
some body armor.  After saving, call Dimitri and he will want to meet up at a 
warehouse to give you some money.  Little Jacob is in the know and will want 
to back you up.  Take a cab and meet up with him at the warehouse.

After Dimitri betrays you with a character named Bulgarin from Niko's past, a 
firefight will ensue.  Little Jacob will draw fire but other then that he 
won't help much.  You will start behind cover which is good; your enemies 
tend to run back and forth but won't approach you.  There is some body armor 
in front of you.  Use your SMG to take down Dimitri's men, but fire very 
carefully so you don't kill them.  Basically, use the auto-aim feature to 
lock on to them, but you can still use the left analog stick to influence 
your shots.  Don't aim for their head.  Despite all the red dots on your map, 
you don't actually have to incapacitate all of them.  When you make your way 
to the other side of the warehouse, the police will arrive.  

Ignore any remaining henchman (you may take a few bullets but you should 
still have most of your health) and locate Little Jacob's red Virgo on the 
right after you exit.  It's pretty easy to find, it's the only non-police car 
in the vicinity.  Get in and Jacob will follow.  You will be taking some 
shots from the police, but your main concern will be not hitting any of them 
with Little Jacob's car.  As long as you have a decent amount of health, you 
can take your time as the police will be focused on shooting you instead of 
pulling you out of the car.  Navigate your way out of the police car mess and 
don't bother shooting back at anybody.  Once you are no longer wanted, take 
Jacob back home.  Roman may call you but don't answer if you can help it.  
Instead, go back to his apartment.  Check your stats; you should have two 
more stars attained but nothing else.  Ignore calls from Roman until you 
save.

After you talk to Roman he'll give you directions to his location.  Cab it 
over and after you let him out of the trunk, take cabs to his apartment, cab 
depot and his girlfriend's place.  Don't worry about your police cruisers; 
they will still be there even though his apartment is burnt down.  Check your 
stats again and save at your new crib.

You can now save two more cars in addition to the cruiser's you have at 
Roman's old apartment.

Take a cab to Brucie's.  Lyle's cousin is trying to snuff out Brucie, so you 
have to clean up another mess.  Brucie usually pays well so no big deal.  
Find a cab and take it to the internet cafe.  After setting up a date with 
French Tom, cab it back to your new place and check stats/save.

After a few in-game hours pass, Roman should text you telling you to go 
online.  You can speed this process up by going to a safe house and sleeping 
to advance the game time.  After Roman texts you, cab it back to the internet 
cafe.  Your date will be at the 69th street diner in five hours.  Don't go 
back to sleep because you will be too late, just wait around and you'll be 
notified of your date a couple hours before it happens.  Head over to the 
69th street diner when you get this notice, he'll be there.

UPDATE: You can take out French Tom without it counting against you.  After 
he runs away, chase after him.  Knock him over and punch/kick him until he 
has one bar of health left.  Now run into him repeatedly until falls over and 
doesn't get up.  He'll be dead and it won't effect your kill count.

OBSOLETE:  After a brief (if you choose) chat, you can kill French Tom.  Do 
so and you'll note that you have 16 kills.  Some people may decide to jump in 
and attack you but ignore them.  The shots may make it hard to find a cab so 
just run until they stop chasing.  Cab it back to your new spot and save.

are such big winners.  Take a cab to the sports car.  If you want, you can 
take the sports car to your new save point and restart the mission by killing 
yourself like you did with the police cruisers.  Head over to the race.  It 
should be a peace of cake for a "stone cold red army killer" such as your 
self.  Don't mess around with the handbrake at all at high speeds, and slow 
down more then you think is necessary for the turns.  You can also easily 
spin out cars in front of you by veering into their rear tires but it's 
probably not worth it.  Even if you are behind for most of the race, there 
are a couple of straight-aways near the end where you can easily surpass any 
cars in front of you.  

After you win, take Brucie back to his spot.  You get to keep the sports car, 
or you can add to the one you took previously if you were so inclined.  Take 
your comet back to the new safe house.  Check the pertinent stats and save.

Take your new car over to Mallorie's friend Manny.  He wants you to help 
clean up the streets.  Your car may teleport a short distance so if its not 
where you left it just look around.  Drive to the designated point, and 
follow the dealer at a safe distance.  Be aware he will stop at red lights so 
follow slowly and keep your distance when he turns.  He'll drive in a 
roundabout way to a compound.  When you get there you will lose your Comet, 
which you can't do anything about unfortunately.  You can blast the lock or 
shoot the window to get in.  The door seems to be minutely better for the 
ensuing battle. Once you enter you will have to deal with about ten dudes 
with various weapons - no assault rifles yet though.

Body armor helps here but there is some health in the room to the left (or 
the room you are standing in if you went through the window).  Shooting the 
door then shooting the dealers is better than running in; they have micro 
SMGs which can do a lot of damage quickly.  Basically aim for their limbs.  
Some of them like to blind fire so your aim needs to be sharp.  Crouch and 
shoot single shots from the pistol or micro SMG for best results.  Take your 
time and aim carefully, they won't rush you.  Plug them one bullet at a time 
until you see their weapon dropped (which is surrounded by a reddish hue).  
This may take a few tries which is exacerbated by the long follow sequence, 
but if you completed the Dimitri shootout a few missions ago you can complete 
this one.  Check your stats after each guy you down to make sure you didn't 
kill him.  At the end of the compound there is a soda machine if you need 
health, but you will have already killed most of your enemies at this point.  

Once you dropped everybody, shoot the lock on the door in the front and go 
back to the safe house.  Do the usual, check your stats and save.  No new 
crimes should have been committed.

Head over to Manny's with a vehicle.  This mission isn't cake but it's 
significantly easier than the previous one.  Grab one of your cars, 
preferably not a cruiser.  If you need more cars use one of the strategies 
outlined at the beginning of this guide.  This mission you are required to 
clean out a few more drug peddlers.  When you arrive to the scene (with a 
car, don't cab it) you can get out a gun of your choice and position yourself 
favorably.  They usually won't react until you start shooting.  A couple of 
them will drive off but you have a good twenty five seconds to incapacitate 
everyone else before they drive too far away.

Do what you did last mission; shoot while avoiding their heads and without 
plugging them with more bullets than necessary.  Once they are done get back 
in your car and chase the other two.  Don't shoot them because they won't get 
out unless the car is going to explode (that's a crime buddy) and you are 
likely to attract police attention.  Don't get too close either, the  
passenger will star blasting you and freak out the locals.  After about 
another minute they'll get out.  Get out and chase them.  Usually there are a 
few police lurking around here, the safe way to dispose of them is with a 
melee weapon.  Sprint into the closest guy to stun him then hit him a few 
times - no more than necessary.  Repeat with the second guy, although be 
aware he may start firing at you if he runs to a certain point. 

UPDATE:  You can also ram the car you are chasing until their car won't work, 
then blast them instead of running around the north island for a couple 
minutes.  Watch out for the police.

Go back home.  Check stats.  Save.  The Elizabeta Torres missions will now be 
open to you.

Niko will have a lot of blood on his hands after this mission.  Head over to 
Elizabeta's and after all the introductions, head over to the building that 
Patrick McReary wants you to go to.  Head up the stairs and get the sniper 
rifle to oversee the deal.  Follow the directions and gun down all your 
enemies, don't worry about trying to shoot their limbs, just go for the kill.  
While it is possible to incapacitate people with a sniper rifle as opposed to 
killing them, this particular set of gangsters you are forced to kill.  You 
can actually tag some of them with a SMG, but they'll still die as opposed to 
knocking them out. Two twists to an otherwise normal sniping initiation are 
that one of them will try to knife Patrick, and you have to kill him before 
Patrick dies.  The last guy will attempt to hop into the van and drive off so 
you have to tag him before he does.  After that bloodbath, take note of the 
eight more kills you have and head back home to save.

This mission is difficult.  Head over to Elizabeta's.  You'll be introduced 
to Playboy X and another guy where you are assigned to another drug deal that 
is actually a sting.  Take a cab for the trek south.  Once you arrive at the 
apartments you'll notice an automatic shotgun.  Usually you can blast 
somebody once with this and take them down without killing them, but if you 
want to be safe use a SMG and go for limb shots.  You can sprint upstairs 
ahead of Playboy if you like.  Once you meet up with the other guy, a 
firefight will ensue and SWAT will also make an appearance.

All the cops, SWAT included, you can incapacitate instead of killed.  You 
have to make your way to the roof, but you don't necessarily have to take 
down everybody.  Sprinting past everyone is probably not a good option 
however, as you can't take all the SMG fire and you might accidentally ditch 
Playboy.  The SWAT members have body armor so they'll take a few more bullets 
then you are used to in order to take them down.  You can usually engage them 
from certain angles one at a time, so you can keep them stunned with your 
bullets to whittle away their body armor and health with your SMG.  When you 
take down one SWAT member you can upgrade your micro-SMG to a better one.

On your way up the first flight of stairs one SWAT member will roll into your 
view.  Wait until he stands up straight before you shoot him or you may 
accidentally get a headshot.  Keep your gun trained around the corners and up 
stairs as you walk.  Sometimes Playboy will go in front of you and draw fire, 
which is good since he can't die.  He won't really help you shoot anybody 
else however.  Once you make it to the roof there will be some health in 
front of you and some SWAT members firing from cover.  You can attempt to aim 
for their hands or simply walk around and shoot their legs.  Be aware when 
you seemingly clean them all out, more will come up the stairs in front of 
you.

After you clean out the rooftops, head back downstairs.  You will run into 
some body armor along the way so keep an eye out for it.  Your ammo situation 
should be fine if you are picking up the guns that SWAT leaves behind.  
Before you head downstairs in the adjacent apartments, you'll get two stars 
(but the game won't acknowledge them as a crime until you actually leave the 
apartment).  SWAT members will stop showing up on your radar but you still 
have to take out a couple more on the way down, so don't let them take you by 
surprise.  Once you get outside, you have a few options to evade the police.  
Directly to your left is a bike you can grab, or you can run around to the 
entrance you used to get into the apartments and grab the SWAT team's 
enforcer.  You also have the option of evading the police on foot which will 
probably take awhile, but may be necessary if you have extremely low health 
and can't take the fire while grabbing a vehicle and waiting for Playboy.  If 
you do decide to escape on foot, remember that alleys and parks are your 
friends.  No matter what you choose, keep an eye on your GPS so you can 
adjust when more police spawn.  The best solution is probably to take the 
bike, ride it to the enforcer and lose the police after that.  

Once the police are evaded take a cab (or drive your enforcer) to the safe 
house.  Check your stats, the only new crime should be two more stars 
attained.  Save.

Head over to Manny's with one of your cars.  After he stops complaining about 
being a metrosexual, cruise over to the designated area.  You have to follow 
a train.  Most of it is pretty easy, just keep your eye out for pedestrians 
and don't deviate from the road.  When the train circles back to the north, 
there is a tricky part where it'll keep heading north but if you try to 
follow directly under it you will get owned by a dead-end in an alley.  Go to 
the right at this juncture, then left again and the target will get off 
shortly.

When your targets reach the stop, you will notice stairs that lead up on your 
right just under the targets, but they will be heading downstairs.  Locate 
one of the sets of stairs to your right and intercept them.  If you wait too 
long they will pile into a car and you will have to chase them down.  If this 
happens it is more than likely the police will intervene in the ensuing 
firefight, which means a restart.  Assuming you take them where the train 
stops, two will open fire when they see you while one of them sprints 
downstairs to the car.  

UPDATE: put your cruiser in a place where you can get back to it easily.  
Blast all the targets until they are at low health, then run back to the cop 
car and call for backup.  Two of the guys will fire at you and one will run 
away.  Let the police kill the two guys, then drive to the last guy who is 
fleeing and gun him down your self (don't let the police see you.  He is very 
fast - thanks for perpetuating a stereotype Rockstar!  You should have one 
more kill after this mission.

OBSOLETE: Take him down first before dealing with the other two.  In this 
mission you have to kill all three of them, so don't worry about trying to 
limb-shot them to unconsciousness

When it's all said and done, cab it back to the apartment, check your stats 
(you should be at 15 kills, no other crimes) and save.

Soon you'll get a message from a mystery guy, Elizabeta will call you 
requesting your help, and Playboy X will also want your services.  Grab a car 
and head over to Elizabeta's first since she is closest.  She's pissed that 
some dudes Little Jacob set her up with ripped her off and stole her coke.  
It's a pain but it's worth it to bring a car over to the abandoned hospital.  
Do not drive onto the yellow arrow but just follow the body of water onto the 
grass next to the fence.  Position your car so it's facing the parking lot 
before you get out.  Gather your wits; this is your newest toughest mission 
yet.  UPDATE:  It may be a good idea to set a waypoint where your car is so 
you can find it easier later.

There will be many red dots, this is a tough mission.  You do have the 
element of surprise however; you can start blasting some of the guys outside 
or simply sprint to the southern end of the hospital.  Locate the ladder and 
climb up.  There will be a couple of guys that will start firing, but hit 
them each once and they'll fall over.  Be very careful not to shoot the 
second guy in the head because he likes to blind fire.  You can actually 
ignore him if you like.

Drop down off the roof after disabling anybody within your line of site on 
the ground - be careful not to hit any explosive canisters.  When you get to 
the ground, follow the perimeter of the compound clockwise and you'll quickly 
find a room with two enemies.  The leftmost one has a pistol and is harder to 
hit so drop the right guy first.  After they are taken care of grab the body 
armor in the center of the room and grab the bag of coke.

After you call Elizabeta, the police will arrive and you can't leave the same 
way you came.  A few law enforcement agents will start firing at the 
remaining cokeheads, and a couple will probably be directly in your path to 
the exit in the north.  Drop a couple of them with your SMG.  After the 
corridor to north is clear, sprint north until you see a wall and turn right 
to exit.  There is more body armor before the exit but you are more likely to 
take hits seeking it out. Keep heading to the right and find the break in the 
fence, then turn left to the north and sprint to where you parked your car.  
Once you exit you'll have three stars on you, and there will be quite a few 
police between you and the bridge back to the main island to the west.  
Unfortunately that's the only way out so I hope you have enough health to 
plow through any blockades on the bridge and make your way to the Pay and 
Spray or just evade the police the old fashioned way.  

Little Jacob will call you after the police stop chasing so drive or take a 
cab to his location.  Michelle will betray you while lamenting her actions.  
You'll still get $2500 for your efforts from... somebody.  Jog over to your 
apartment and check your stats.  You should have three more stars - nine 
total, but no additional crimes.

"What motivates you'" - playboy
"I'm looking for someone." - Niko

Get some body armor and save before this mission, you will probably have to 
restart quite a bit in what is the hardest mission to date.  Don't worry 
about ammo.  You'll ultimately be forced to kill three foremen, but the rest 
of the workers you can incapacitate.  Take a cab and you'll meet Dwayne, 
while Playboy informs you of his plight.  Your mission is to stop the 
construction site by killing a few people.  Take a cab to the construction 
site and enter the van to get the assault rifle (with a lot of ammo!) and 
sniper rifle.

Take the window washing elevator next to the van to the roof.  Snipe all the 
targets by lining yourself up with the spotters on your GPS and zoom in.  
They'll be standing on the edges of the cranes.  Pop them one by one - they 
shouldn't die from the bullet - and enemies who fall to their death don't 
count against you (Remember, gravity killed them!).  Take a window/elevator 
down and jump in the black van where you got the weapons.

Drive west and go around the construction site until the first foreman is 
directly to the east of you.  You may have some heat on you so listen for 
bullets being fired; if so incapacitate anybody close with your rifle.  
Crouching increases accuracy which makes it unlikely you will head shot 
anybody.  Either way, make sure you still have the sniper equipped still and 
jump onto the hood of the van.  The red dot indicating the foreman should be 
on the same level as you.  Kill him.  You have the option of incapacitating 
anybody running at you or you can sprint up the ramp to the next foreman.

UPDATE: For some reason if you get the second foreman down to one life bar by 
blasting him in the gut with an assault rifle, he seems to bleed to death.  
It's difficult to reproduce but definitely possible.

If you do run up the ramp immediately, a quick cut scene informing you of the 
use of grenades will occur and anybody that was chasing you below will 
vanish, but you will be surrounded by about six other construction guys and a 
foreman.  If you cancel the cut scene quick enough you'll keep your assault 
rifle equipped instead of the grenades, which is much more conducive to 
sedating the construction guys as opposed to blowing them up.  Stay behind 
cover and pick them off one by one.  Around your tenth attempt for this 
mission you will probably be adept enough to have most of your health if not 
some body armor at this point.

After the second foreman is killed (no choice), move towards the third one.  
Focus on taking down the two men accompanying him first, but DO NOT kill the 
third foreman.  After that, make your way towards the foreman but try to stay 
behind some cover.  He should shuffle around behind some construction stuff 
as you approach, giving you clear shots to the guys to your east.  Continue 
to use cover and disable them as you see fit.  You may have to abandon your 
cover to take out a couple of the ones that only blind fire.  You are almost 
out of the woods and a headshot would be catastrophic.  As you progress (the 
third foreman should be almost out of range but may still be taking potshots 
at you) you will see some health on your right, or to the south.  A couple 
more guys that are a bit more dangerous - they have assault rifles - will 
separate you from an important ledge.

Once everybody is cleared out, jog back a little bit until you can get a 
clear shot at the third foreman with your sniper rifle.  After you kill him, 
immediately sprint back to the ledge and locate the final foreman climbing a 
ladder.  More enemies will be coming at you that are dropped off from a 
helicopter, but ignore them.  The last foreman should be halfway up but if he 
isn't then wait a second or two then pop him.  He'll fall to his death and it 
won't count against you, making you three kills deep for this mission.

You can jump down and you'll stop getting shot at soon, but it doesn't really 
matter if you die.  In either scenario, cap it back to your apartment and 
check your stats.  You should have two more kills from killing the first and 
third foreman (the second one you can make bleed to death and the fourth you 
can knock off the ladder).
 
Save.

Playboy will call soon asking you to help Dwayne.  So now, Playboy and the 
mystery man should be available to you at this point.  Take a cab over to 
Dwayne's.  He'll let you know how his girlfriend and the guy who snitched on 
him took his money.  Cab it down to the arcade, if you bring a car it will 
vanish after the cut scene.

You can execute the girl if you want, but although it doesn't seem to fit 
pacifist Niko.  Locate the bike behind you and chase down the snitch, you may 
have to go fast early to catch up.  The bike you grabbed won't count against 
you.  Prepare for a long chase, don't follow too close.  Other cars tend to 
swerve out of the way, and he can turn abruptly, both of which you will need 
time to react to.  Around six minutes in he will start to break down and run 
into stuff.  He'll eventually fly off his bike, don't drive into him.  He'll 
stand up and walk around but will sprint if you leave him alone.

UPDATE: When he falls of his bike, hop off yours and run after him - remember 
where your bike is.  Run into him to stun him momentarily (or hopefully knock 
him over).  Beat him into submission; be careful because he has an automatic.  
If you whiff you will take a lot of bullets.  After he goes down, which 
usually happens when he has one or no blocks of life, things will get a 
little tricky.  You have to go back to your bike.  You need some room to work 
with, so line up from his body rolling around on the ground and back up so 
you can get some speed.  Gun it towards his body but a couple seconds before 
your bike will run over him jump off.  The jumping off animation takes a 
couple seconds so it is better to err on the side of caution and jump off 
sooner than you may think is necessary.  After a few tries the bike will kill 
him, but it won't count as a person run down because you will have already 
hopped off the bike.  No new crimes!

OBSOLETE: Quickly look for some police and if you see any let him run off and 
chase him until its safe.  After he's dead (31st kill) grab the money and 
take a cab to burger shot.

When it's all said and done, check your stats.  You shouldn't have any new 
crimes, save if that is the case.

UPDATE: It is possible to kill two (or possibly three) of the bouncers 
without it counting against you in the stats.  Before you activate the 
mission go to Playboy's apartment.  Grab a car you have saved there (I used a 
police car) or his Patriot (looks like a hummer).  Start the mission at 
Dwayne's.  On your way to the strip club, run into a few things until there 
is black smoke coming from the hood of your car.  After you reach the club, 
park in the back entrance which is on Leavenworth Avenue and Drill Street.  
Once your smoking car is secured near that exit, jog over to the front and 
enter the strip club without any weapons visible.  Run past all the managers 
and patrons to the exit.  The door will be locked, take out a gun and fire it 
once.  The managers will flee away from you (towards the front entrance) and 
the rear entrance will now be unlocked.  Go outside and into your smoking 
car.  Drive to the front entrance and ram into one of the parked cars there 
until your vehicle is on fire.  Now park next to their SUV that they are 
attempting to escape, and exit.  With good timing and luck, you should get 
two of them with the ensuing explosion.  One of them always seems to survive, 
so blast the straggler.

OBSOLETE: Take a cab to Dwayne's.  He'll start whining about his club being 
taken from him, so snag a cab over there.  Don't have any weapons showing 
when you enter or you'll start getting shot at by a lot of bouncers.  Once 
you enter, walk up to the first two guys and you'll get a red dot indicating 
one of the managers.  Walk up to him and use a melee weapon to get rid of him 
(or else the others will flee and you'll have a mess of people shooting at 
you).  Be aware that if he fires a shot it will also alert everybody to your 
presence, so killing him quickly is imperative.  

OBSOLETE: Once he has been discretely taken care of, move towards the back of 
the club. There will be a short couple of stairs up on the right, but locate 
the other manager on the left talking to the girl who can't pronounce his 
name properly.  Once you located him, then move upstairs and find the final 
manager in the back room.  Once you have them both on your GPS, walk over to 
the rail.  Quickly take out your assault rifle and blast him to death.  Be 
careful not to hit the stripper.  You should be getting shot now but you 
should have enough time to sprint over to the final manager and kill him 
before he escapes.  Sometimes he doesn't have time to get out of the room, 
but if he does manage to make it outside and to his car you're screwed since 
you don't have a car to chase him.

Once all three are dead the bouncers may kill you but its okay, the mission 
is still complete.  Take a cab from the club (or hospital) and go back to 
your safe house.  Check your stats; you should have three one kill.  Save.  
Playboy will call you or already have called and he'll pretty upset over the 
club shootout.

NOTE: It is probable that you can get all three managers in their SUV before 
you explode your car next to them, negating the one and only kill.

and wait for Playboy to call you.  After he tells you which guy it is, take 
out your sniper rifle and take care of business.  The guy should be staring 
right at you but as long as you don't get too close it's easy to blow his 
brains out.  If you do get too close his amigos will start firing at you 
while he takes off, and you'll have to run and gun him down.

Michelle should call you soon.  Your options should now be two unknown 
contacts.  Head over to the one at Castle Gardens and jog over to the pier.  
You'll run into Officer Francis McReary, Packie's brother.  Niko seems to 
know this without introduction.  Take a cab over to the viewpoint and call 
Francis.  He'll give you the blackmailer's digits, so give him a call while 
walking down the stairs.  Keep looking around for someone holding a cell 
phone.  You can call him back if need be.  Once you locate him, let him jog 
away for twenty seconds.  Run into him to knock him over and punch him until 
he has a bar of life left.  He is walkable, sprint into him repeatedly until 
he doesn't get back up, and he'll drop the evidence.

OBSOLETE: After you locate him, let him run away a little bit first then kill 
him in any manner you see fit.

Pick up the evidence he has and you'll get a couple of stars automatically.  
You probably won't have a car unless you decided not to take a cab, so you'll 
have to shake them on foot.  If you let the blackmailer run away a little bit 
you should have some space between you and the police to work with.  If they 
catch up (they probably will since the water is cornering you) don't sweat 
it, just sprint by them.  Use your GPS to avoid running into more cops that 
spawn.  Alleys are your friend.

Once they police have been shaken, take a cab or sprint if your close 
enough) to Francis.  $1000 dollars later the mission will be done, although 
money shouldn't be an issue ever again.  Playboy may give you a call soon as 
well as Packie.  Cab it back to your apartment and check your stats.  You 
should still have 19 kills and 2 more stars attained, but nothing else.

follow the directions.  Once the resume is submitted, take a cab to Perseus 
in Middle Park East.  You should get a call from the lawyers soon to set up 
the meeting and maybe from Dwayne as well.  Buy a nice suit, pants and shoes.  
The black loafers and obsidian suit worked for me.  Take a cab back to your 
apartment and go save to pass some time for the meet tomorrow.  Sleep again 
if need be to get closer to the right time for the meeting.

On your way to the meeting it is imperative you ignore any calls from 
Mallorie or you will be forced to rescue Roman, which will probably force you 
to reschedule the meeting.  Three hours before you are scheduled to meet you 
can actually show up sooner and get this over with.  Once you're in the 
meeting with Goldberg, get up and get out a melee weapon.  You can't execute 
this guy - if you fire any shots it will alert the secretary (who will in 
turn alert security) while giving you some unwanted stars.  When you get your 
melee weapon out and target him, he'll make a quip about going camping or 
something, but he'll give you the files (Remember to target him with your 
knife!).  Stab him once with your knife and he'll go down, which doesn't 
count against you, and then grab the files.  Don't hold any weapons when you 
leave the office.  Make your way back to Francis at your leisure.

Check your stats, nothing should have changed, then save.

Get some body armor if you don't have any and go back and save.  Now answer 
Mallorie after you get out of bed.  Roman is being taken hostage, so take a 
cab over to the warehouse.  Grab the assault rifle in front.  You have an 
advantage to take a couple people out before they find cover.  Remember you 
can zoom in while targeting enemies by pushing in the right analog stick, so 
you will be less likely to accidentally get a head shot.  There is also some 
health but you should probably save it if you have less than half health.

After you take everyone down that you can see, make your way upstairs.  Be 
aware that a lot of them stand at vantage points that will mess you up as you 
make your way to the stairs, so address those on the upper floors with your 
assault rifle.  Keep your gun aimed so you can target anybody that comes into 
view.  If you find you have lost too much health, you can retreat to near the 
street and call an ambulance.  Additionally, the health pack will respawn if 
you get far enough away (but don't go too far or you'll fail the mission).

As you make your way to the second floor, more enemies will join the battle.  
There is some body armor in front of some barrels near the stairs to the 
third floor which you will probably need at this point.  On the third floor 
there are about five more guys, one of them with a shotgun next to a health 
pack on the wall.  He usually won't expose himself unless you get next to him 
so be careful.  After you get past that point three or four more guys will 
sprint into view, so find some cover.  Any shots fired will send them 
careening down to their death (but won't be reflected on your stats as a 
kill).  Be aware there is an explosive barrel on this floor, so don't shoot 
it and don't stand next to it.

When you get to the fourth floor you will get shot at by two guys on the roof 
(one bullet knocks them off) and a couple more guys directly in front of you.  
Take out the roof guys first because they don't have cover and constantly 
shoot at you.  Beware the other explosives.  There is a guy in the last room 
who tends to wait until you run in, but you can shoot is arm sticking out 
then pick him off when he stumbles back.

When you get close enough someone will hold a gun to Roman's head.  Crouch, 
zoom in and take your time.  He'll fire at you but unless you are at low 
health don't sweat it.  You should err on the side of caution because even if 
you shoot, he won't blow away Roman's head.  You can shoot the guy in the 
hand or arm and he'll go down, just don't get any closer.  Roman will sprint 
downstairs, so follow him into a Bobcat.  It's recommended after you get in 
to immediately get out and simply find a cab.  You don't want to accidentally 
hit anybody with a car.

Check the stats, everything should be the same, then save.

"You didn't change the game, the game changed you." - Niko

IMPORTANT: Kill Playboy because you need Dwayne's special ability.
You should get a call soon from Playboy forcing you to make a decision to 
either kill Playboy or Dwayne.  Dwayne is easier to kill, but Playboy is a 
punk who deserves it more.  You should be able to take either of them out 
without much trouble.  You really should kill Playboy unless you want to make 
life really hard on yourself; you need Dwayne's special ability for a few 
missions in the future.

First Playboy will request your presence, and going to his place will trigger 
the beginning of the mission.  After awhile Dwayne will give you a call.  You 
can sleep for awhile to get his call sooner, or get some more cars for your 
safe houses to pass the time.

If you choose to kill Dwayne (DON'T!), take a cab over to his place.  Go into 
his apartment and head up the stairs.  The only resistance will be a guy with 
a bat, cap him in the knees a few times until he goes down.  Walk into this 
kitchen and encounter Dwayne.  He won't put up a fight; he'll even turn his 
back on you to make it easier.  Take out your pistol and execute him so it 
won't count against you.  Kid stuff.  You'll get a bunch of money you 
probably don't need.

Playboy is another story, a bit more difficult than Dwayne but shouldn't pose 
too much trouble for you if you made it this far.  Take a cab over to his 
place.  He'll have a few of his boys with him and they will have more than 
just bats to threaten you with.  After some words are exchanged, a shootout 
will ensue.  Incapacitate the guy separating you from Playboy's escape route.  
Ignore the others and sprint after Playboy (you can run faster if you are 
holding a lighter gun.)

Once you run outside there will be a short scene where he leaps to another 
building and goes downstairs.  Run and jump after him.  Sprint downstairs 
until you get to the ground level.  He should still be within your sites when 
you run outside; he'll be on the map even if you can't.  He'll duck into an 
alley soon, and some thugs in cars will probably start nailing you with SMGs.  
Ignore them and sprint after Playboy until he is cornered.  He'll talk some 
shit for awhile, but just aim your pistol at him until the crosshair starts 
flashing indicating you can execute him.  I had to pop him in the foot a few 
times before the game would let me execute him (as usual it won't count 
against you.)

Once this is done, run back to Playboy's pad, which you can now save at.  
Check your stats before you do!  You also can keep two cars here.  An 
enforcer should already be at your disposal.  Roman may give you a call soon 
informing you he bought a place in Algonquin where you can also save at.

UPDATE: To get Dwayne's ability, check your email after this mission.  Once 
you read Dwayne's email and reply, You will be 'officially' friends.  He'll 
call you in awhile to hang (go to sleep to speed this up).  Wine and dine him 
a few times to get his special ability.  You need about %80 like to get his 
ability.  When you surpass that threshold he will stop answering your calls 
and you have to wait about 24 game hours for him to let you know that you can 
call for backup.

UPDATE: Dwayne's ability isn't necessary, but if you have it I recommend 
giving Dwayne a call when you make it to the roof with Packie.

This mission will probably take a few tries, so getting armor and saving is a 
good idea.  Take a cab over to Packie's.  After The scene where Kate ogles 
you, take another cab to the docks.  Follow Packie run and climb around until 
you get to the vantage point.  You'll have to steal the truck, but there a 
lot of goons guarding it.  Get down and in a favorable position, beware the 
guy on your right on the dock near the boat however.  Get out your assault 
rifle and zoom in to take down your opponents without killing them.  Packie 
distracts them but doesn't really do much damage.  There are many guys with 
high powered automatics inside near the truck.  Once they are cleared out 
grab the truck.

When you are exiting the building be very careful not to run over any of the 
unconscious people on the ground.  Nothing is lamer than carefully plugging 
people for thirty minutes and then accidentally crushing their skull with a 
tire.  Cruise through the fence blocking your way out of this area, but look 
out for people on the sidewalk.  After a block or two you will have a couple 
triad cars firing at you with automatics.  The game will instruct you to use 
the grenades but don't use them (too much crime).  You should focus on 
driving the truck to the destination; your vehicle can take many bullets 
before it starts even smoking.  If for some reason it does start smoking you 
should go into panic mode and gun it to the destination.  When you get to the 
lockup point, beware the running pedestrians that may sprint in front of you 
due to the gunfire.

Once this mission is complete, take a gander at your stats then save at a 
safe house of your choosing.

You can take a car around for this mission or a cab.  The advantage of taking 
your car is that you can evade the police later.  Whatever you choose, Make 
you're way to the other McReary, Francis.  He'll talk you into killing some 
schmuck, because you are essentially an assassin.  Take a cab to the 
destination.  There will be a short scene where Francis explains the layout 
and implores you to not start shooting until you get off the ground level.  
There are essentially two ways you can go about this mission.  You can get to 
the second level before getting involved in a firefight if you go up without 
a weapon, but the gangsters on the ground will run after you.  If you want to 
go this route its best to sprint up without engaging in anybody unless you 
have to.

You can also play it safe and simply incapacitate everybody.  The most 
dangerous seem to have SMGs and they are on the upper levels.  Whether you 
are sprinting to the top or taking down everyone in your way, you don't 
necessarily have to follow your targets exact path.  Note that on the second 
floor you have to make him run away from the middle before he flees to the 
top.  After he runs away from the middle of the second floor, take one of the 
stairways up.  You'll get a trashcan thrown at you on the way to the third 
floor but it doesn't do much damage.  There is some health on the third floor 
near the stairways, look for the glowing green on the wall.

Once you get to the roof, you can kill the "scumbag" or let him live.  If you 
do decide to kill him use your pistol to assassinate so it won't count 
against you.  You'll get two stars automatically (Francis clearly isn't 
watching your back). This mission isn't over, so you can't just jump off the 
roof.  Any gangsters that are still alive will be ghost, and the police will 
make their way up the apartment.  Most of them will be on the ground floor, 
so hopefully you will have enough health remaining.  You should take a 
stairway that you didn't take on the way up so you can get more health.  Be 
aware of you blast an officer you'll get three stars, and have to restart.

If you brought your own car, find it and evade the police.  If you took a 
cab, run around in alleys and keep an eye on your GPS to avoid new cops until 
you escape.  Once it's done you'll be five Gs richer.  Get to a safe house, 
check your stats and save.  You should be two more stars deeper in stars 
attained, but no new crimes.

Cab it over to Francis again.  After his whiny douchebag rant, he'll want you 
to kill somebody else.  Take a cab to the car where you will get some sniper 
bullets (and a sniper if you don't have one).  The blue Feltzer is the one 
you want.  Get out of the car (unless you want to keep it) and hail a cab to 
the target.

Once you're at the destination, talk to Francis and go into the apartment 
across the street and run up a few flights of stairs.  The game will give you 
a not-so-subtle hint to shoot the TV to 'lure' the guy into your crosshairs.  
Usually when my TV gets sniped I tend to leave the scene, but this guy makes 
your job really easy.  Pop the dealer and you'll get your thirty-seventh 
kill.

Go back downstairs, make your way to a safe house, and check your stats.  You 
shouldn't have any other crimes aside from that new kill.  Save.

DWAYNE'S ABILITY: no

For this mission its best to have a car at the original safe house, Roman's 
old apartment before it got burned down.  You should have two police cars 
from way back but if you don't just take one of your cars there or acquire 
one using one of the methods at the beginning of this faq.  After you got a 
car in that parking spot outside of the old safe house, take a cab over to 
your remaining mystery contact.  It will be Michelle and her employers, they 
will blackmail you into working for them.

After a scene, take a cab over to your destination.  Break into the place and
check the email.  Once you read the emails, log off and you will be asked to
kill a guy who appears to be getting too close.  You'll need a car for the 
next part, so jog over to the old safe house location and grab one of your 
cruisers or a car you put there.  You could also take a cab to a different 
location to grab one of your cars, but that takes a little more time then you 
would want to spend since you could fail.

Once you get a car and drive to the next location, you'll have to chase down 
and kill a guy.  He'll start out very fast, pace your self and watch for 
civilians.  Shooting at him is generally a bad idea because you may attract 
police attention and if you blow up the car you will have to restart.  
Basically just follow him around for a couple minutes; he likes to use alleys 
so keep enough distance to adjust if he turns abruptly.  At one of the alleys 
near the end some pipes will get in your way and you'll have to back up and 
follow parallel to him.  If you fail the first time take note of the 
location, you can simply not go down that particular alley and follow 
parallel to him.  After a couple blocks he'll actually get back onto your 
street.

Soon he'll start driving much slower.  Spin him out a few times, after you do
enough damage he will stop and you'll get instructions to execute him and 
he'll plead from his car.  It's also possible to get him pinned (with the 
help of other cars) where you can get out and shoot him in the face before 
being instructed to do so.  This should be second nature but spinning someone 
out is easiest to do by pulling up next to a car and veering into the bumper.  

UPDATE: You don't have to kill Oleg.  When he stops, instead of shooting him 
ram your car into moving objects (so it won't stall out) until it's on fire.  
Park it next to Oleg, get out and watch him explode.  His car is fire 
retardant or something though, so you should have a car behind him as well 
because it takes two big explosions to get the guy on fire.

OBSOLETE: When the guy is pinned and you have a clear shot, look around and 
make sure there are no police nearby.  If you pick up a star, restart.  
Annoying, but this mission isn't too tough compared to what you've been 
through.

When he's dead you'll be $6500 richer.  Take your cruiser to any safe house 
or grab a cab if you wish.  Check your stats; you shouldn't have any new 
crimes.  Save.

You're going to need a cruiser for this mission.  If you don't have one, get 
a car and go to the original safe house at the beginning of the game at Hove 
Beach.  Drive north a bit and you will see a parked police car on your left.  
Use your car to push it into the parking place at the original safe house, 
then save somewhere.

Once you have a cruiser secured (if you didn't have one already) go to U. L.  
Papers.  He will want you to find a guy, which requires a police car.  Take a 
cab to your cruiser and hop in.  After you check your picture, access the 
police database.  Follow the directions, and when you locate the guy drive 
north until you get close enough to see the targets, feel free to take a cab 
if you are not in the mood to drive.

You're forced to kill all of them so don't hold back.  Neither Dwayne's men 
nor the police do any damage to these guys.  The easiest way is to pick most 
of them off with a sniper.  After you take down everybody within your site, 
drive north past them all on the east side up the road so you can get the 
drop on the remaining guys.  You should have the high ground for most of them 
so shoot them at your leisure.  When they are all disposed of, you have the 
option of taking your cruiser back to a safe house parking spot.  Either way, 
check your stats; you should have 12 more kills.  Save.  I suspect this 
mission can be improved upon greatly.

DWAYNE'S ABILITY: optional

You need a vehicle for this mission so have one ready.  It's best to have one 
at the safe house at Middle Park East.  When you are ready, set a waypoint at 
one of your car locations for later.  Take a cab to U. L. Papers or drive a 
car there.  When you receive the mission, take your car to the destination.

Update:  You could take a cab to the destination then call Dwayne's boys and 
snag their car.

You gotta chase the chopper around, which will be easy for you at this point.  
Use the highways, even if the chopper seems like its veering in a different 
direction, just keep going and it will cross overhead for you.  Watch for 
pedestrians but they should be almost nonexistent on the highways.  Once you 
go under a tunnel the chopper will soon land.

After that chase, roll up to the bridge with two guards and take them down 
without killing them.  Approach the chopper with your assault rifle.  There
will be a group of guys huddled around some cover.  Take down as many as you 
can without compromising their lives or yours.  At some point you'll get a 
message saying the meeting is over and to steal the chopper.  Do so and take 
off as fast as possible, you should be able to make it with a sliver of 
health left if enough guys were killed on the ground.  Note that if you 
attempt to take the chopper too soon (before the message) it will result in 
your demise.

Update:  If you have Dwayne's men with you, they can help out distract your 
enemies, but can't seem to hurt anybody on their own.

Once you have the chopper off the ground get out of the immediate area so you 
don't get shot and fly above all the buildings.  You will get two stars but 
flying to the destination will be a cake walk.  Be careful when you land if 
you haven't flown in awhile; use the in game instructions to assist your 
descent.  Once you are in the clear, take a cab to a safe house.  Check your 
stats, you shouldn't have any more kills, but you will note 1 helicopter 
stolen and two more stars attained.  Save of course!

DWAYNE'S ABILITY: Yes

****WARNING****
This may be the toughest mission in the game for the following reasons:

1.  You can't make any of your enemies go unconscious.  If you get the last 
shot in, they die and it counts against you.
2.  Packie, Michael and Gordon can die.  They can take a few hits, but if 
two or more people are shooting at them they tend to get stun-locked and you 
won't be able to break them out of it unless you shoot one of your 
enemies, run into them, or use an object (such as a car) to block their 
line of vision.
3.  There are many, many bad guys in this mission.
4.  There is a long drive to your destination from Packie's house.  If one 
thing goes wrong, you have to make that five minute drive all over again.

****WARNING****

Before you do anything max out on assault rifle ammo and armor.

Take a cab over to Packie again.  After a scene, you'll need a four door car 
for Packie and his boys.  Take a short jog south and you'll find a car on the 
right in a driveway.  Grab it; you shouldn't have to break in (so it won't 
count as a steal).  You can bring one of your cars also but it's much more 
annoying to make the trip.  Go back to Packie's and pick everyone up, but be 
careful because Packie tends to run into your car while you're moving in 
order to ride shotgun, which will count against you.  After a lengthy drive 
you'll see the yellow marker which is your destination.  Drive past it and 
circle around the compound until you see an opening that leads into the 
docking area.  Be careful, if you drive too slowly at this point your posse 
will hop out and you may knock them over.  Once you reach the waterfront, get 
out and note you may have possibly lured some of the bad guys out from cover 
(which Packie and his friends can handle easily).

UPDATE: Once you get to this point give Dwayne a call and recruit some help.  
Once Dwayne's boys arrive, they'll jog behind your car until Packie and 
Packie's 
crew exit the vehicle to engage the Italian mobsters.

UPDATE - BEST METHOD: When Packie's guys exit the car, Dwayne's men will 
enter.  Now drive around outside and Let Dwayne's men wreck everybody.  
Generally try not to reverse without making sure Packie or one of his guys 
aren't behind you, since it will count as running them down if you tap them.  
Once everybody on the outside has been taken out, drive your car inside the 
waste facility.  Remember not to reverse because you will definitely hit 
somebody.  Drive in front of your targets on the ground, the guys upstairs 
can't be damaged by Packie or Dwayne's men.  In the middle it may seem like a 
tough squeeze for your car but you can just drive through the boxes on the 
left.  Once everybody on the ground has been taken out, the tricky part is 
next.  If you run up the stairs the three guys up top will instantly target 
you.  You are forced to kill the first two, I haven't found a way to stun-
lock them and run past them.  Once those two are dead, go back outside and 
grab the health.

UPDATE: The final guy upstairs tends to hang back either in the room with the 
bag or close to it's entrance.  Dwayne's men, once you are at on the walkway, 
will then sprint up after you.  They usually can serve as a distraction for 
the final mobster.  Aim a weaker gun (such as a SMG) at his leg and approach.  
Pop him in the leg anytime it seems like he is about to shoot you, and when 
you get past him sprint to the bag.  If you have full life you should be able 
to grab the bag and jump off through one of the windows (or turn around and 
jump off the catwalk) without dying.  Using this method, you should have two 
more kills to your name.  Scroll past the quick and dirty method for further 
instructions.


OBSOLETE: (old methods below)

From here on out there are essentially two ways to do this mission, the safe 
and painfully long way or risky quick way.  I'd recommend the quick way 
because even the "safe" way I'd conservatively estimate can only successfully 
be done %20 of the time, and each "safe" run takes thirty minutes.

SAFE METHOD:

The people standing around the waste depot will open fire when they spot you.  
Unfortunately you have to do a little babysitting, if you run to far away 
from the fight one of Patrick's friends will die and you will fail the 
mission.  Your enemies die really easily, if you get the last shot they will 
usually die instead of go unconscious.  Pop each one twice in the chest with 
an AK, then let Packie, Michael or Gordon get the last shot when they have a 
fourth or less life left.  You can "encourage" your entourage to shoot your 
target if you get close to who you want to die.  Running into your enemies 
can sometimes make them stumble out of cover.  Beware the explosive canisters 
scattered around.  You can get a freebie kill by letting your car get shot up 
until it's on fire, then drive it over next to somebody and running away.  
You may get shot in the car while doing this however.

Your pals can take a lot of hits but will eventually die if they get shot too 
much or you run too far away.  When you get to the actual entrance of the 
waste depot you will find some health to the left of the entrance.  Make sure 
your peeps are around and not engaged in any firefights.  Once inside you'll 
have to deal with six or seven more guys.  Whittle each of them down and let 
your teammates finish them like before.  One of the guys will be firing at 
you from the window, if he isn't dead when you run upstairs he'll sprint over 
to you with another guy that get in your way, which makes a total of three if 
the guy at the top of the stairway is still on his feet.  You have to kill 
these three guys (and only them) or they -will- kill you.  Packie, Michael 
and Gordon are incapable of hitting anything more than six feet above them.

QUICK AND DIRTY METHOD:

Ditch Patrick and his friends and gun it straight for the entrance.  Make 
sure Patrick says something to the tune of "It's the moment of truth" before 
you do this or the doors won't open.  Sprint inside and run around the 
obstacles to the stairs, jumping over them tends to take longer.  Note that 
once you get in Packie and the other two will teleport inside and all the 
enemies that are alive outside will sprint inside and start shooting your 
friends, so you are very much on the clock.  At the bottom of the stairs you 
can run into the guy with the SMG and he'll sometimes stumble so you get shot 
less.  Once you get to the mid-level platform kill the guy at the top of the 
stairs.  Free aim may work better here since there are many targets you will 
latch onto before the guy above you.  After the two other guys run out, blast 
them as well and sprint for the bag.  If you did this fast enough and you are 
very luck, nobody (including you) will have died at this point.

Whichever method you've used, the next part is mostly the same.  Italian 
mobsters will be flooding in from all entrances and engaging your teammates.  
Do a 180 and sprint back on the walkway.  Jump down and break your fall on 
the barrier so you won't take any damage and after you roll keep running in 
that direction to the southeastern corner of the building and exit the doors 
on the left.  Once you are outside none of your boys are in danger of dying, 
so if you go through the double doors and don't get shot in the back you are 
home free more or less.  Run down the stairs and jump in the water.  Grab the 
Boat (1 boat stolen!) and wait for Packie.

OBSOLETE: Drive to shore and get paid.  Take a cab home and check your stats.  
You should one boat stolen have three more kills for a total of 52 (could be 
room for improvement here...) then save.  DO NOT under any circumstances 
answer the phone from U. L. Papers.  If you do it will trigger a mission, 
kill yourself and save if this happens.  Packie may also call you which you 
can answer safely - he'll offer his sister even though he recently warned you 
off her.

UPDATE: Take the boat to shore.  After a few words with Packie, U. L. Papers 
may call but DON'T answer.  If you trigger the mission, kill yourself.  At 
the end of the day you should have two more kills and a stolen boat added to 
your record.  Save.

UPDATE: If you are having trouble with the best method at the top that I 
recommend, or you are having trouble with the directions I provided, Dave 
Xander has given me his two cents on how to properly complete the mission.  
My only problem is he doesn't have an easy scenario for dealing with the 
third mobster on top of the catwalk, which you have to avoid killing.  He 
also mentions that you may run into a guy on the way to the entrance of the 
disposal plant, which you MUST NOT do.

Xander's method:

1) Buy armor from Lil Jacob. While its not necessary, its nice to have. One 
time I did not have armor. So I had low health when I was exiting the back 
door of the waste plant with Packie. A Mafia guy was waiting just outside the 
door and killed me with one shotgun blast. 
 
2) When the 4 door vehicle, preferably a SUV, is one block away from the 
waste plant, Packie says something like "Now is the moment of F.. truth".
Ahead and to the left is the yellow arrow blip. 
DO NOT DRIVE OR WALK INTO THE YELLOW BLIP!!!!
 
3) Continue to drive straight. The yellow blip will disappear as if you 
entered it but will not trigger the cut scene. At the end of the block where 
the waste plant is, the Mafia guys will start to shoot at the car. There is 
only one turn here so turn right and continue to drive. This is a dead end 
street. Stop near the end of the street and get out of the car. Packie and 
his two friends will also get out of the car and start shooting at the Mafia 
guys on the other side of the fence. If Packie & friends just stand there, 
then start to walk back in the direction you came from and they will start to 
shoot towards the plant on the other side of the fence. Packie and his 2 
friends never died while they were on this street and engaged in the shoot 
out. It could be a gliche in the game. Or they are too far away from the 
shooters for any damage to be done.
 
4) Enter the car by yourself. Packie and 2 friends are too busy to get in the 
car with you. To the left is an opening in the fence. Drive through this 
opening and turn left. There is a pile of pipes. Drive around the pipes and 
there is a gate half open. This is the back gate to the waste plant. Just on 
the other side of the fence to the right is the door entrance to the plant. 
Drive through the fence about where gate is half open and stop right at the 
front of the door to the plant. Exit the car and enter the door. Ignore the 
health pack as you have made it into the plant with full health, no shots 
fired, nobody killed, and Packie and friends still alive. Do not shoot anyone 
outside the building. It's a waste of time unless they are in your way from 
reaching the door. Sometimes you may have to run over one Mafia guy to reach 
the door. I have tried taking Packie and friends with me in the car to the 
door but someone always died there so I leave them in the street where they 
are much safer.
 
5) In the waste plant, run straight then turn right. When you see the bottom 
of the stairs, shoot (I used AK 47) the Mafia guy close to the bottom of the 
stairs. Sometimes he's bent over not shooting like he's scared but he can 
start shooting at anytime.  When you're close to the bottom of the stairs 
shoot the guy at the upper level cat walk of the stairs. Then run up the 
stairs. Do not try to shoot while climbing the stairs, as the targeting 
system is very poor on the stairs.  Run across the cat walk and shoot the 2 
guys that come out of the office. Or with full health and armour, you maybe 
able to run up the stairs without killing anyone. Grab the cash. Do not run 
back down the stairs. Run straight ahead from the office and jump over the 
catwalk guard rail. Land right by the back door with Packie waiting there. 
Exit the door and checking for a shooter outside. Down the stairs and swim to 
the boat.
 
Mission completed!

Micskill's reminder: No matter what method you use (or whatever one you 
create on your own) at the end of the day you should have two kills or less 
(please email me if you can manage to kill less then two!) and one boat 
stolen.  Any more crime than that and you have to restart.

UPDATE: If U. L. Papers doesn't call you, you can go ahead and do the Three 
Leaf Clover mission first, then complete this one.  You ideally should be 
getting armor and 600 assault rifle bullets for the Three Leaf Clover mission 
in any case.  On your way to the weapon shop he'll probably call you.

After you wake up U. L. Papers will call you shortly and trigger another 
mission.  Take a cab to the destination where you will find Little Jacob 
chilling in a chopper.  Take off and fly in the general direction of the 
other chopper as your rise.  It's easiest to fly above all the buildings and 
follow instead of trying to weave between them.  Enjoy the Mary Jane banter 
and music while chasing the guy until he flies under a bridge.  You will be 
instructed to descend to his level, and Little Jacob will nail him on the 
third shot from his rocket launcher.  Drop him off and keep the chopper if 
you'd like, just be careful not to land on any pedestrians.  The South Bohan 
save point is usually not too crowded.  The hove Beach one where Roman used 
to live is difficult because of the subway tracks above it.  Check your stats 
before you save, you should have no new crimes.  Kid stuff compared to the 
previous mission.

If it hasn't happened already, you will get an unknown caller, which is Ray.  
He will have work for you.

The bank heist mission.  This is half as hard as the previous Packie mission 
but takes three times as long.  Get armor and safe before starting this, as 
well as  make sure all of your safe houses in the middle island have a couple 
cars (or helicopters) available to you.  You'll also need a car for at the 
beginning of this mission; the one that was there for Waste Not Want Knots is 
sadly missing.  The easiest way is to have a car at Roman's old apartment 
ready for you and take a cab there, then drive to Packie's.  Once you pick 
everybody up, drive to the bank.

UPDATE: I am now of the opinion this is the hardest mission, due to the 
length and the bug that sometimes makes SWAT members invincible on the subway 
tracks, and because Waste Not Want Knots is much easier with Dwayne's homeys 
helping you.

Here are some key notes that you should be aware of for this mission.

1.	You can incapacitate any of the cops or SWAT members that have a red 
arrow above their head and appear on the GPS.  Don't rush but be aware 
that cops behind you can get shots on you.  You have to shoot all the law 
enforcement with a red arrow in order to progress.  The exception is in the 
last phase of the sewers where Derrick and Packie take off down the tracks, 
it seems you can incapacitate the SWAT guys across the subway tracks, and you 
don't have to take down all of them to trigger the next event.
2.	Packie and his brother can take what seems to be unlimited damage (I've 
seen Packie's brother stand next to a car when it exploded and survived 
the ensuing fire damage).  If you shoot them for a couple seconds they 
will die however.
3.	Unlike Waste Not Want Knots, your teammates are more adept at taking 
down law enforcement, so try not to shoot somebody after they are downed or 
you may get a kill.
4.	I believe you are given a carbine rifle for this mission, which does 
more damage but seems to be less accurate.  This assault rifle is still an 
ideal gun; zoom by pressing the right trigger inward.  Even if the police or 
SWAT are extremely low on life, as long as you don't shoot them in the head 
they won't die.  Use single shots to keep your accuracy high.
5.	I'm told there are two health replenishments available during this 
mission but you may need to consult another FAQ to find them, because I 
haven't been able to.  (UPDATE: found one of them in the subway)
6.	This mission is very long.  Being conservative and surgical with your 
shots and actions will make this much easier for you. Don't take any chances; 
you don't want to repeat this mission too often.

UPDATE:  You can call for Dwayne's crew at any time if you want but they tend 
to get lost and don't help much.

After Michael gets blown away, go into the vault and get the money.  On your 
way out you'll be surrounded by police but don't bother putting yourself into 
danger or shoot anybody.  After a few moments Packie and Derrick will run 
into an alley where there will be a few cops.  Take your time and pelt them 
to death since your teammates aren't in any real danger of dying.  Try to 
give yourself cover where you also won't be shot in the back.  Be careful not 
to do too much damage to a car so it won't blow up.

Advance when told to do so, the second wave isn't too difficult.  Packie and 
Derrick may have a bit more trouble hitting this particular group, so take 
down the ones with red arrows as needed.  Don't feel rushed.  After you 
advance a bit farther, there are quite a few to deal with on the third and 
fourth waves.  They also will rush you, so try to take down the ones closest 
first.  Fortunately they tend to aggro to your teammates instead of shooting 
you.  Any time you are instructed to follow Packie and Derrick, do so and 
ignore all the police.

After a couple more waves short scene with a chopper will occur. Run down 
stairs into the subway after the others, and ignore the police on your right.  
They may get some pistol damage but it shouldn't be a lot.  Ideally you will 
have full health and possibly some armor left over.  If you are low on 
health, you can pepper them both with a couple leg shots and then sprint pass 
them.  I did this successfully once without getting hit once.  Once you're in 
the subway find some cover and peck away your enemies.

There are two waves here, the first being police.  After they are downed, 
SWAT will emerge with assault rifles.  You may find yourself with low health, 
so locate the health on the wall on one of the pillars.  Look for a greenish 
you if you have trouble locating it.

UPDATE: The next area is a bit tricky.  Many SWAT guys will be on the 
opposite side of the tracks blasting at you and your crew.  It seems like the 
only way to progress is to incapacitate a certain amount, simply running 
after Packie in the tunnel can backfire due to a bug.  It would seem if the 
SWAT members get too close, they become invincible, and if this happens 
Packie and his Derrick won't run away down the tracks.  It's best to not hop 
down onto the tracks until you knock out enough SWAT members to trigger 
Derrick and Packie to start fleeing.  Just make sure you follow them once you 
get the message that they are getting too far away from you.

OBSOLETE: The game will instruct you to turn around and blast some SWAT 
members (and any police left over) but don't.  Run down away from your 
teammates a bit and crouch, it makes you harder to hit.  After thirty seconds 
or so, go back near your teammates and they should be more inclined to run 
away at this point.  Shoot a couple SWAT members but don't get the killing 
blow if it seems like nothing is happening.

After Packie and Derrick take off, follow them.  They start out on the right 
side but shift to the left because a train is barreling after them.  Follow 
them and you will be fine, you have plenty of time to react to it.  After you 
reach the subway exit, you'll notice you have three stars instead of five 
(and those three will count against you).  Run upstairs, you now are in a 
typical police escaping situation that isn't scripted.  Unfortunately your 
not out of the woods yet since you can't just steal a car.

You now should make your way back to one of your safe houses to get one of 
your cars that has four doors.  Be aware that if you sprint at full speed you 
will lose Packie or Derrick.  It is recommended you jog around instead of 
sprinting.  The police and helicopter tend to shoot at your teammates more 
than you, so if you are low health you don't have to panic as much.  Remember 
that alley ways are key to escaping the police.  It may be possible to jog 
away on foot by avoiding the common streets.  If this doesn't work, jog to a 
safe house.  If you have a helicopter, grab it and fly away to Packie's 
house.  When escaping be very careful not to bump into any pedestrians, you 
don't want to restart at this point.  If you make your way to a car you have, 
drive to a spray and pray, then take a cab to Packie's.

Take a deep breath and check your stats.  You should have three more stars 
but no more kills in what many consider to be the hardest mission in the 
game.  If you have gotten this far, you definitely can complete the Pacifist 
Niko Challenge.  Take a cab to a safe house and save.  Enjoy a victory soda 
or beer for completing this mission.

UPDATE: After perhaps 12 hours, Packie will call you.  Answer him so you 
become friends, you should probably do whatever activity he wants to do in 
order to get his special ability.

Snag a cab to Ray's.  He'll want you to 'take care' of someone who isn't on 
top of the 'vig'.  Take a cab to the destination.  Look at the picture from 
the text message then run over to the guy with the white 72 jersey.  He'll 
instruct you to take an elevator up and use stairs the rest of the way.  Be 
aware after you get off the elevator a guy will be blasting you with an 
automatic, so stay on your toes.  You'll encounter about six guys on every 
floor; they use an assortment of mostly SMGs but some pistols.  They like to 
blind fire from behind corners, there are two health replenishments on the 
walls near the stairwells.  Generally it takes four assault rifle bullets to 
put them down, so don't spray too much.  Single bullets generally work 
better, they get stunned and you can plug them at your leisure.

Once you get to the yellow marker for the targets room, there will be three 
guys in the living room waiting for you.  Once they are disposed of, go the 
kitchen and grab the health if you need it.  On your way back you'll get a 
door slammed in your face, and the chase is on.  Follow him up the stairs, 
but on the second flight up there will be a couple guys waiting for you, and 
a couple more on the roof.  Don't feel rushed, just do your thing and take 
your shots carefully.  Once you have Ted cornered take out your pistol and 
shoot him.  After he plummets into the fence, the mission is over.  Take a 
cab back to a safe house.  You should have no new crimes.  Save.

new physics of an awkward vehicle.  After a couple stops you'll get some guys 
shooting at you.  They probably can eventually blow you up if you stand still 
long enough, but you shouldn't feel any pressure.  Make sure you don't tap 
anybody, and when you get close to the destination they will go away.  This 
mission is cake compared to what you've been through.  Once it's all said and

GTA mission.  Take a cab to the next destination and after a short scene 
you'll find yourself in a fast car.  Chase these jokers around for awhile 
without shooting them.  After they crash in the park take out your assault 
rifle.  One of them has a shotgun so don't run up next to him.  Take them out 
carefully, you don't have to kill them.  After that go into the bathroom and 
shoot doors until you find the last guy.  Execute him (which won't count 
against you) and take a cab to the bridge.  After you give over the diamonds, 
make sure you haven't committed any new crimes, and then save.

Take yet another cab to Ray's.  He'll want you to facilitate the trade for 
the money with the diamonds you got earlier.  It won't work out of course, 
and you'll have to battle your way out from a bunch of Italian mobsters.  You 
start in cover but a guy to your left will have line of site on you, so take 
him out first.  There are about ten people on this floor, some on the balcony 
across from you.  There are also about eight people on the ground floor so 
you may as well blast them into submission when you have the high ground.  
Near the stairs down there is health on the wall.

Once you start to descend some more enemies will spawn above you, and some of 
them will spawn on the ground.  Two of the guys will be sprinting up the 
stairs to you so turn your attention to them first.  After that nail most of 
them and you should see some body armor on a desk.  You can take out 
everybody on the balconies above you or simply sprint for the exit (some may 
eventually catch up if you dilly dally on the next part however).  There 
should be some more health on the wall if you need it, and a bunch of guys 
outside using cars as cover.  Equip yourself with a light weapon (not sniper 
or assault rifle) and sprint outside and to the right towards the park.  
After you get far enough away from the mob, the mission will be over.

Cab it home, check stats for no new crimes and save.

Cab it to Ray's again.  You're going after The Lost this time because Johnny 
has the money from the diamond deal.  When you find them at their hideout 
you'll be provided with a bike (which doesn't count as a steal) in order to 
chase two of them down.  Rove around after them, don't go top speed.  
Eventually they'll go into the subway, drop off the edge and do a 180 in 
midair if you can.  Follow them around but don't get too close to them, they 
sometimes make dramatic turns on different subway tunnels.  You can actually 
get hit by a train and have more than enough time to get back on the bike and 
catch up to them.

Once you get close to the edge of island one of them will bite the dust 
hitting an oncoming train.  After going over the water the remaining biker 
will veer to the left abruptly onto a walkway.  Speed down this walkway so 
you get enough speed to make a jump (or else you'll crash and waste some time 
which is not a big deal, he doesn't lose you very fast).  Follow him a few 
more blocks and he will slow greatly.  Once you feel like you're in an area 
without police, blast him from your bike with an SMG but be careful not to 
run over him when he falls off.

UPDATE: At this point don't finish him off.  Get far enough away so the Lost 
biker can't hit you with his pistol, then recruit Dwayne's crew to eliminate 
the target.  You should have no crimes.

Note: Dwayne's ability does not work for this mission.

Grab a cab back to Ray's for his last mission.  You are now charged with 
rubbing out Isaac and the diamond dealers.  Take another cab to the hotel.  
Go take the elevator up.  There will be five dudes with big guns waiting for 
you, so turn to the right and get out of most of their line of sight before 
you start blasting them.  They tend to die easily so put on your kid gloves 
when shooting them.  Be aware they are fairly accurate with their guns so 
using cover will help you.

After you advance down the hallway go upstairs.  Watch out for the guys at 
the top.  There will be plenty of gangsters in the lavish hotel room, it may 
help to shoot the doors to get line of sight instead of walking through them.  
One of your targets will be around here which you will be forced to kill.  
Once you've cleared everyone out on this floor, you can get some health from 
the kitchen.

Advance upstairs once you have regrouped.  There will be a guy at the top so 
shoot him to submission.  The next part can be a bit hard because there will 
be three guys shooting at you through glass (you can shoot through it too) 
but you won't have any cover.  You have to walk a fine line between shooting 
them before they kill you but not overdoing it and accidentally killing them.  
Your last target will plummet off the building and won't count against you.  
There is also body armor on the roof which you should grab since the police 
will now be on to you and there are some gangsters left.

There will be some stairs that lead down from the roof to another lower 
section of the roof with three more guys waiting to turn you into Swiss 
cheese.  Once they are unconscious, find the lift and take it to the ground.  
The police will be waiting outside the alley so it is recommended you jump 
the fence to your left.  Use the usual techniques (alleys, parks, avoid major 
streets) to get out from under the police's thumb.  Once you run a certain 
proximity away from the hotel the mission will be over and you can either 
evade the police or let yourself get killed.

Thus ends Ray's missions.  The Phil Bell mission thread will now be open to 
you.  Take note of your new crimes - Two kills and two more stars.  Save.

Take a cab to Florian's/Bernie's.  Your old friend will help taking out some 
hater.  Take a cab to the park with Bernie.  Jog behind him but not too close 
to him.  After about thirty seconds he'll get jumped.

UPDATE: It's much easier to ready your pistol while jogging after Bernie.  
Once he gets whacked with a bat, sprint forward until you exit the tunnel 
then aim towards the upper right until you lock onto the hater and fire.  The 
pistol tends to work well because you can run fast with it and it is 
accurate.  Once you shoot him once, he'll falter.  Jump over the railing and 
tag him again before he makes it to the bike - if he gets to a certain point 
up the stairs he actually sort of just teleports into it.  Shoot him until he 
dies, then ignore the next paragraph and follow the one below it. 

OBSOLETE:  Chase the "hater" up the stairs and grab one of the Faggio's (it 
won't count against you, but someone may get pissed and try to knock you 
off).  Chase the hater around the park.  Don't be afraid to take shortcuts 
across the grassy plains.  He is pretty quick but you should concentrate on 
not hitting anybody.  After awhile you'll notice Bernie so pick him up.  He 
may run in front of you so approach Bernie slowly.  After that the chase will 
go the major roads so keep chasing him around until he slows down a bit or 
you catch up and then blast him.

Get out of the area before the police arrive, then take a cab to Perseus.  
After Bernie is satisfied, take a cab to a safe house.  You should have 
another kill but no other crimes.  Save.

Take a cab to Bernie's.  He'll want you to find a fly car.  As usual, the 
game provides you with an ideal vehicle a short distance away.  Look to your 
left and you'll find a Turismo for the taking that doesn't count as a steal.  
Pick up Bernie and drive through town north to the destination to meet with 
the blackmailers.  After a scene, chase after them.  They are pretty quick so 
you may have to move faster than what is in your comfort zone.  The  
blackmailers will follow a highway clockwise around the perimeter of the 
town.  You don't necessarily have to follow them through the tunnels and 
highways however, it's actually easier to go on the streets parallel to them 
as long as you don't mind Bernie's whining.  If you do decide to chase 
directly behind them beware the cars that they'll flip over that may get in 
your way.  

UPDATE: After the chase, get out on foot when the game directs you to.  
Immediately sprint over to the blackmailers until they take out their guns, 
then sprint back over to a major road, such as the one nearby Bernie's 
location.  Call Dwayne and use his special ability.  When the reinforcements 
arrive, take the car Dwayne's friends deliver you and allow them to hop in.  
Carefully avoid people back to the blackmailers and let your new friends 
eradicate them.  Get out and go back to Bernie, Dwayne's friends will still 
follow you so try not to hit them on your way back to Bernie's place.  Again, 
ignore the obsolete paragraph and skip to the next one.
 
OBSOLETE: After a somewhat lengthy chase around town, they'll attempt to 
escape on foot near the southwestern edge of the middle island.  Drive close 
enough for them to start take shots at you then retreat a ways into the park, 
as far as possible from the streets.  Park Bernie in a safe place and make 
sure there are no police around (there may be a few walking here and there).  
When you feel that there are no police and you are standing away from any 
major streets, feel free to return fire with a couple sniper shots or a 
zoomed in assault rifle.  If you attract police attention you will have to 
restart.  If you can somehow separate these guys it may be possible to knife 
them before they shoot you to death (you can call an ambulance which may help 
here).

Once the Dimitri's blackmailers are dead, return Bernie to his residence.  
Return to a safe house, you can keep the Turismo if you wish.  Make sure you 
don't have any new crimes.  Save as usual.

Once you are there, Dimitri's men will show up and make some poorly placed 
shots.  Follow them around, but note that like last mission you don't have to 
do everything that they do.  It's usually easier just to follow parallel to 
them while they weave around and go over jumps.  Be careful not to flip your 
boat because you will have to reload if that happens (restarting through your 
phone results in another boat steal).  Don't shoot at the boat.

After you pass under a bridge near Charge Island, the police will get on 
Dimitri's men, but he gets blown up quickly.  They'll soon dock and make a 
run for it, so chase after them on foot.  If you don't go the way they did 
you can jump up the steep hill to the left of the pier.  They'll spread out 
once on land, but don't feel pressured to take them out quickly because they 
stop at predestined locations.  You can blast them into submission without 
killing them, so do so.  Pedestrians may attempt to join the fray, don't kill 
any of them.  Once again, don't shoot near any major roads or the police may 
notice (and cause you to restart).

After they are shot to the brink of death, return to Bernie.  He'll take off 
in his man's boat, and his missions are all complete.  Not to bad compared to 
Packie's eh?  Take a cab to one of your homes and note that you have one more 
boat steal but nothing else.  Save.  Bernie will call soon and give you an 
Infernos for your efforts.

Lets return to the McReary brothers.  Go to Gerry's.  He has a scheme to 
cause some trouble that involves a bomb.  Take a cab to Inchon Avenue and get 
the bomb.  After talking to Gerry, take a cab to a safe house and get one of 
your cars.  Drive over to Tony's car and plant them bomb.  Follow them around 
town but don't get too close.

After you reach the meet, park your car where and call Gerry to detonate the 
bomb.  After that is done you will have to cleanup the remaining four 
Ancelottis Use your car for cover if you like.  You can take them down 
without killing them.  After the last one dies you'll get a couple stars.  
Shake the police on foot or with your car (unless it vanished like it did for 
me).  After its over go to your safe house and make sure you didn't commit 
any crimes aside from two stars more stars attained, and then save.

Take a cab to Gerry's.  Appreciate the title for what I believe to be is a 
Terminator reference.  After Gerry jibber jabbers for awhile, get on the bike 
that is waiting for you (not a steal).  Head to the meeting point, beware the 
pedestrians.  It may be a very familiar route from a certain Packie mission.  
After you get to the destination prepare for a chase.

There is a bum on your left when the chase starts, don't run over him when 
you start the Frankie Garone chase.  He'll drive around many alleys with many 
people, so don't overextend your self trying to chase him.  The margin of 
error, however, is smaller then usual.  Follow the roads he takes; don't try 
to use the parallel strategy if you miss a turn.  After about a minute, he'll 
slow down to a reasonable speed.  If you want to take him out legit like, 
just run into him ten times, and the police won't think anything of it when 
he dies.  In fact, neither will the game.

Update:  Make sure not to run into him too fast or you will get tagged for 
him down in the crime section.  The second time I did this mission I was 
having trouble reproducing my original method.  It would seem that Frankie 
Garone takes damage when you tap him (which produces a decent 'thud' sound) 
but he will occasionally slam into a car and fall off his bike before you can 
ram him to death.  If this happens, hop off your bike and run into him 
repeatedly until he falls down for good.  Frankie may have thoughts about 
taking out his gun, but he'll quickly put it away and run, which is a shame 
because you could easily call Dwayne's guys to take him out if he was stupid 
enough to take shots at Niko.

When it's all said and done, you should have no new crimes on your conscious.  
Go home and save.

For this mission you will need a cop car, it helps to have one at or close to 
Alderny.  Take a cab to Derrick's.  Some dude named Bucky Sligo is 
threatening Derrick and the other McReary's.  Your job is to take him out.  
You'll need a cop car for this so go back to Roman's old apartment for one 
(if you don't have one ready you can go north a couple blocks from that old 
safe house and push a parked cop car into the parking spot.  Once you save 
and reload it is all yours).

When you have a cop car, search for Bucky Sligo in the database and add him 
to your GPS.  Drive the police car to the Burger Shot and back into the 
destination.  You'll have to chase this guy around for forty-five seconds.  
He likes to drive in yards and behind houses where people tend to meander 
about so be careful.  Once you get near the destination put the police car in 
a direction where you can escape easily without hitting anybody.

Once Bucky reaches his friend's house a firefight will ensue.  Bucky will run 
inside and there will be a guy on the deck that will start shooting at you.  
Someone may also run outside to also engage you.  You can fire back now 
(which will cause the police to arrive) or go around back, which is much 
easier.  If you go through the back door shoot the door open and shoot 
everybody as opposed to walking in and getting lit up.  There will be about 
six guys total.  They don't die too easily; just don't get a head shot.  The 
one on the second floor is waiting for you at the top of the stairs with a 
shotgun, which can really put a hurting on your health.  If get a star, you 
may have to rush a little bit because things can get very messy if the police 
arrive.  However, if the police do arrive they occasionally will take out a 
bad guy or two for you.

Once they are all downed, you will get two stars automatically if you haven't 
already.  Return to your police car if you can without jeopardizing your life 
and escape to safety (or make a run for it if you have to).  Once the police 
are evaded the mission is complete.  After a call to Derrick's strung out 
self, Ray will text you letting you know he set you up with a safe house.  
I'd recommend driving your cruiser there if you still have it in one piece.  
Check your stats, two more stars attained but nothing else.  Save.

Take a cab over to Derrick, or just jog over if you're at the Alderney safe 
house.  You'll start out in a boat (which counts as a steal for some reason).  
Meet up with Kim and follow his boat.  When your enemies emerge, stay to the 
right of them and let Derrick do the shooting.  Ideally you will be tanking 
for him while he kills a boat or two.  This may take a few tries because Kim, 
Derrick or you could possibly die.

Kim's boat will eventually stop after you notice the helicopter.  Derrick 
will stop helping (out of ammo') at this point so kill the two guys on the 
boat, the one shooting at you first.  Don't use the rocket launcher on the 
helicopter because it will count as three kills.  Instead, blast the two guys 
shooting from the sides and shoot the helicopter down with your assault 
rifle.  

UPDATE:  It is possible to take out the chopper without getting two fires 
started on your record.  If you aim at the tail of the chopper, it will go 
down much faster and won't count against you.  You should tap the fire button 
instead of holding it down for more accuracy, crouching also helps.  Black 
fire should appear before you reload for the fourth time, keep firing and it 
will go down much sooner than if you blast it indiscriminately.  

OBSOLETE:  It will take a two or three hundred bullets but it will eventually 
go down.  The pilot will bail out, but you will be charged with two fires 
started.  

Guide Kim to shore.  At the end of the day you should have one more boat 
Stolen and four more kills.  Save.

Take a cab over to Derrick.  Derrick wants you to kill his old friend Aiden 
when he is in transit with a police escort.  Take a cab to the truck Packie 
wants you to use and drive it to the tunnel.  Block off the designated area 
but don't start blasting the police until Packie arrives.  Some of them have 
assault rifles and body armor.  Some of them will also approach you instead 
of sitting still, so take down the ones closest first.  If you can, make sure 
you don't block a path way out with their bodies because you don't want to 
run over them.   Packie may help you on the other side, but mostly it will be 
up to you to incapacitate them.

After they are all downed grab the stockade.  Be careful not to run over any 
of their unconscious bodies.  When you reach one of the tunnel exits it may 
occasionally be blocked by a police vehicle, so try to build a lot of 
momentum to smash through.  If that doesn't work back out and go a different 
way.  Once you're outside you have to evade three stars while keeping the 
stockade.  Alleys aren't as good of an idea since they are too tight, try to 
use hills downward to build up enough speed to get out of law enforcements 
grasp.

When you drop of the stockade Packie will have another vehicle for you, so 
drive Aiden to the cliffs.  Pop him in the chest once with a pistol and watch 
him plummet to his doom.  Take a cab back home and check your stats - you 
should have three more stars.  Save as per usual.

to make it easier, don't aim for the head.  The reason why you should kill 
Francis is he his graveyard is much closer (I guess because he is a police 
captain?) and it makes the Undertaker mission much easier.  Save after you

UPDATE: Chungarunga has an easier way to complete this mission.

"It is possible to do this mission without a single shot and no health loss. 
Go to the mission destination after talking to Phil. When you're in the 
position and Triads have arrived go to the left and jump over the wall. The 
Triads will spot you and they will start to shoot but that's not a problem. 
Head left and go around the building, enemies won't follow. When you will get 
near the van it will start to move so hop on it. That's about it."

Thank you Chungarunga!! My old method is below.  If you use Chungarunga's 
method above, skip to the last paragraph.

Phil Bell should be the only mission thread available to you.  Take a cab to 
his office.  He'll want you to rip off a truck from the Triads that has a lot 
of heroin. There will be an Intruder in front of his place that won't count 
against you if you are inclined to take it.  Grab it and find a cab, then 
take the cab to the destination.

Once there the heroin truck will show up along with about twenty guys that 
will shoot you on sight.  It's probably impossible to sprint to the truck 
from any angle and survive.

OBSOLETE:  It's best to methodically pick them off with your assault rifle 
while zoomed.  Be careful not to get any headshots.  Some of them will rush 
you so take them out first.  Advance towards any stragglers as necessary.  
Once they are all unconscious the truck will pull away soon, so run after it.
  
After you jump on the van, you'll have to jam the A button to climb up.  
Follow the directions in game and enjoy Niko's antics.  Once you have the 
truck drive it to the destination.  Take a cab back home and make sure you 
don't have any new crimes.  Save.

OBSOLETE: (You should have had access to Dwayne's ability a long time ago.  
Before anything, you pretty much must have Dwayne's special ability for this 
mission.  It's kind of a pain in the ass because you can only get him to go 
out at certain times, but it's worth it.  Needless to say if you killed him 
you're going to have some problems.  I got his special ability around %77 
like.  I'm not certain how to budge his respect but it was at %66, not sure 
if it matters though.

Now get dressed for the funeral!  Don't forget to wear nice shiny shoes too.  
Whatever you wore to the lawyer's meeting should work.  Body armor is also a 
fantastic idea.  Packie and Kate will call you in a minute or two.  If you 
aren't quite ready, don't answer Packie, or if you already did kill yourself 
and save before progressing.  Don't bother taking a car to the funeral 
because it will vanish, so take a cab.  When you arrive take note of the 
hearse.  If it becomes too damaged you will lose the mission.  This is quite 
a difficult mission, so after you are dressed up for it you should save.  
When you get to the funeral, call for Dwayne's boys -before- you step on the 
yellow arrow.

UPDATE: If you brought armor (which you should have), sprint across the 
street to the car on the curb that is farther away from you.  You will get 
shot quite a bit but your body armor should keep you at least with a fourth 
of your health remaining.  Dwayne's guys are much more effective in the car, 
and it won't count as a steal even though it would appear you are hotwiring 
it.  You'll literally mow all the Albanians and their reinforcements down 
within a couple minutes.  The paragraphs below still may be useful to you, 
but you can skit to the second to last paragraph if you would like after all 
the Albanians are dead.  Furthermore, you won't attract any police attention 
this way by not firing any bullets.

After the funeral procession, a firefight will occur with some Albanians that 
Gerry has beef with.  The game will force you to draw your pistol, but switch 
to an assault rifle.  The first wave of four have pistols and low grade 
automatics.  Wound them all and let Packie and any police in the vicinity 
finish them off.  You can call for police backup (or they may arrive on their 
own), but Dwayne's ability won't work at this point.  Another way to speed 
things up is to hop in one of their cars that they are using for cover and 
help give Packie a better shot.  You can also push other vehicles on top of 
your enemies.  It doesn't really kill them but gives Packie time to shoot 
back.  Beware if they don't die immediately, they could survive under the car 
and if you drive that car it will count against you as someone being run 
down.  You can also try drawing enough fire to make the car smoke, then park 
it next to them and watch them explode (you'll take some hits doing this 
however, so don't try it with low health).  

Generally, however, the best strategy is to gun down the guy hiding behind 
the car that the Albanians came in until he is at low life, then let someone 
else kill him.  Once he's dead get in the car and let Dwayne's boys and Pack 
do most of the grunt work.  Be careful not to back over his body though 
because that might count against you as a person run down.  You can actually 
just stay in the car and not really utilize much of the strategy below; the 
biggest danger with this strategy is you dying.  It's still the easiest way 
to get the job done.

After most or all of them are dead, another car load of guys with automatics 
will arrive.  Use the same principals - shoot them until they are almost dead 
and have Packie, Dwayne's boys and the police finish them.  It's tedious but 
possible.  Remember not to use the hearse as cover.  If you find yourself low 
on heath, you can far enough away (but not too far) and call an ambulance.  
If the paramedics hear gun fire they run away though.  Before you kill off 
these guys it usually helps to take one of the cars across the street or one 
of the Albanian cars and block the alley way.  It messes up their AI a bit 
and makes them run all the way around the block, which makes cleanup much 
easier.

After the second wave, another car will approach as well as some guys from 
the alley way.  Things will get pretty crazy at this point with about eight 
Albanians to deal with, but don't kill all of the directly.  Another 
complication is that while Packie can take a lot of fire, it is possible that 
he could die.  With the help of Dwayne's friends it's quite possible to not 
kill anybody.  Dwayne's boys seem to be more focused when you are all in a 
car instead of trying to use cover and being useless.  Once you finish off 
all but two of them, you'll automatically get two stars.  Don't sweat it 
though, after you kill the last two the police don't actually surround you 
until you get in the hearse.  Dwayne's boys won't get in but be careful not 
to hit them, they tend to run up next to the car.

The final phase is taking the hearse to the graveyard, which is kind of a 
crap shoot.  Be careful not to hit anybody, but all of the bodies will vanish 
from the previous firefight.  Drive efficiently but don't speed even the more 
Albanians will be on your butt shortly.  Don't bother shooting back at them 
because you may cause a death, explosion or get more police on you.  If you 
run into too many objects the casket will fall out, and believe me you don't 
want to redo this mission after getting this far.  Make sure you get off the 
exit after the bridge or you're going to have a really tough time.  Packie 
may complain about his brother about to fall out but he just says that if the 
top of the casket is off.  It's somewhat amusing that Packie complains about 
how slow you're driving but immediately sounds like he is going to crap 
himself because he's brother is going to fall out.  UPDATE: hopefully you 
killed Francis, this phase of the mission is much easier if you did.

Once you make it to the cemetery, check your stats to make sure everything is 
legit.  Take a cab to a safe house and save.

Gerald should call you soon after the Undertaker mission, so head over there 
via cab.  Hail it again before you go in the correctional facility so it will 
be waiting for you after you talk to Gerry.  After a little chat call Packie 
and he'll want you to go to an internet cafe, so do so by taking another cab.  
Once you are inside click on the car advertisement and follow the directions.  
Go ahead and save, then call the girl when you are ready to start the mission 
in earnest.

After you call at the appropriate time, take a cab and meet Gracie Ancelotti 
at her house.  Drive 'Gracie' to the beach; try not to run into too much 
stuff (or people).  Once you get close enough you'll have to turn around and 
go all the way back north to the safe house.  Try and get onto the highway 
before she starts spazzing out too much, you may accidentally hit a biker or 
pedestrian if you are on the regular streets.  You should drive somewhat fast 
since I think she tries to bail out at one point, but Niko will elbow her in 
the face and knock her out shortly after that.

When you get to the lockup, Niko will hand her over to some dudes.  Go back 
and save to pass some time.  After you wake up, Packie should give you a call 
soon requesting you take a picture of Gracie Ancelotti.  Take a cab over 
there and head upstairs.  Use your camera phone to take a picture.  Make sure 
you have no new crimes and save again.  Ray will probably call you soon and 
the dialogue serves as a history lesson from the diamond missions.

UPDATE: It is possible to complete this mission without killing anybody.

Body armor will help for this mission, it's recommended you grab some and 
save before progressing.  We've ignored Jimmy Pegorino for awhile so let's 
check him out.  Take a cab over there.  Pegorino's wife hints that maybe the 
organization isn't doing so well in her sarcastic way.  Jimmy will talk in 
riddles for awhile but what he really wants is for you to make sure things 
don't go sour at a meeting Load up in Jimmy's car and head south to the 
refinery. 

UPDATE:  Once you are there go inside the refinery.  Switch from the sniper 
rifle they give you to the assault rifle once you reach the top of the stairs 
and after the cut scene.  Duck and zoom in.  Take out the guys on the right 
first, the one in the middle generally gets taken out by Pegorino or one of 
his men.  Work your way from right to left.  If one of the guys on the right 
is alive for three or four seconds, he will tend to hide behind a steel 
pillar on the right that is in your way and proves difficult to lock onto.  
Hopefully you have good vision or a big HDTV, because you will have to tag 
him in the hand or wrist to drive him into your view.  Using the assault 
rifle, you can blast everyone unconscious but not kill them. 

OBSOLETE:  Snipe all those mafia dudes; it shouldn't be too hard even though 
they are surprisingly agile for big guys.

When they are dead jump go the ground level again.  The bullets you hear are 
being aimed at you, not Pegorino.  When you are on the ground the guys here 
can be blasted unconscious instead of killed.  Many of them will pitch over 
the side when you hit them with a single bullet.  Run up the stairs on the 
right and hug the wall so the guys above you won't hit you.  They have AKs 
and attack from many angles so beware.  Some of them like to hang out around 
corners, sound is your friend.

Circle around the building to reach Jimmy.  Don't dilly dally too long or 
else he'll die, but don't rush and accidentally kill anybody either.  Once 
again, approaching the building from the eastern side is less dangerous then 
going the obvious route.  Sprint over to Jimmy when you see him to initiate a 
car race, even if there are guys left over that you haven't dealt with.  
Drive around the factories, ignore anybody that shoots at you (don't run into 
them either).  After about a minute of driving around, the car will stop and 
you'll have to blast a few more guys.

UPDATE:  Once they hop out of the car, incapacitate everybody in view then 
call Dwayne's guys for reinforcements.  Note that if you call them earlier in 
the mission, and they destroy the car with the offering, you will fail the 
mission.  It is generally better to wait until this juncture.

In any case, they can take a few hits but shouldn't pose much of a problem 
for you at this juncture.   When they are disposed of sprint after the guy 
with the goods, he'll be on your GPS.  He'll be upstairs zig zagging around, 
when you get up there he'll try to go back downstairs, so keep an eye on your 
radar.  Pop him once, then let Dwayne's men finish him.  He may also be 
walkable, as he seemed reluctant to use his gun on me.  Return to Jimmy 
Pegorino's car.

Take it easy on the way back to Jimmy's, no need to rush.  Once Jimmy's safe 
and sound, take a cab back to a safe house.  You shouldn't have any more 
kills.

Armor helps for this mission.  Cab it back to Gerry.  Looks like his ransom 
is going to finally pay off, but he may be in jail for awhile.  Take a cab 
over to Packie; he'll be waiting in a Vincent with Gracie.  Drive over to the 
exchange point.  The exchange will go smoothly until a man from Niko's past 
shows up, Mr. Bulgarin.  Get ready for a big firefight.

Blast your way out but don't kill anybody.  Finally Packie will be packing 
something larger than a pistol.  The guys on the upper levels tend to fall 
off.  After the guys are killed on the ground, head up the ramp after Packie.  
There will be some armor half way up.  Three guys will be up there, you can 
hit them between the pipes and the walkway safely.  More will spawn above and 
behind you shortly, and there are many of them.  Be careful not to shoot the 
explosive barrels.  Packie will draw some of the heat but you will have to 
work fast.  Some of them will fall off the railing after getting shot but not 
all of them.

Continue to follow Packie's lead.  Keep an eye on your GPS for red dots that 
represent your enemies.  One of them likes to blind fire so hit him in the 
hand with a zoomed in assault rifle to get him exposed.  After the last guys 
on the walkway are downed, two cars full of guys (eight total) will arrive.  
It is recommended you back up a bit and abuse distance to take them down 
safely, as you may be at low health at this point.

Five or six more will appear on your level on the walkway.  Do your thing and 
take them out.  Some of them will buckle over as if they are going to fall 
off but don't, yet they'll mysteriously lose all their life.  Luckily they 
tend to focus on Packie at this point, so place your shots carefully.  When 
they are dead follow Packie North and then West.  There is some health on the 
generator-thingie on the walkway that you can spot if you look for a green 
hue.

After you catch up to Packie, one of the guys will throw away the diamonds.  
Dispatch Mr. Bulgarin's remaining men.  Go down the ladder.  Niko will 
explain everything to Packie including Dimitri and Bulgarin.  More pressing 
matters for you include getting off this silly island.  Don't try swimming 
for it though; Packie can't swim very well apparently.  Try to find a way to 
jog back to the highway above you, you'll eventually find a cab up there.

Once Packie is dropped off, take a cab back to your pad.  You shouldn't have 
any new crimes.  Gerry's missions are now complete as are the McReary's clan 
as a whole.  Save.

CAR: yes (provided at Jimmy's house however, not a steal)
WEAPONS: any
DWAYNE'S ABILITY: yes

Take a cab to Jimmy's big house.  Jimmy will want you to get revenge on the 
Pavanos for the crap they pulled in Pegorino's Pride.  Take a cab to their 
hangout but before you step on the yellow arrow, call Dwayne's boys and get 
in their car (restart if they don't bring one).  UPDATE: You can also take 
Jimmy's car to the next yellow arrow and call Dwayne's guys when you reach 
the shootout, which will result in you having two cars to explode your 
enemies with.  Have your car facing the north east before you get on the 
arrow, and the Italians will spot you.  Chase them around town, which may be 
kind of annoying because there seem to be a lot of pedestrians running around 
here no matter what time of day it is.

UPDATE: it is possible to get by this mission with but one kill on your 
record.  After the chase, most guys will stay at the dealership but a 
shotgunner will come after you.  Stick around in your car because if you get 
out enemies will get out and attack you who would normally get into their 
cars and try to escape.  Call Dwayne's peeps while avoiding the shotgunner 
for awhile (if you already have them just drive around for a minute before 
doing the next step).  When they arrive, get out and go into the alley in 
front of the dealership so you are as far away as possible from all the major 
roads, then gun down the shotgunner (who is invincible from your new 
friends.)  Another guy with an automatic will probably also be close behind 
the shotgunner, but Dwayne's guys can kill him.  Get back in your car at this 
point.  Hopefully one or two of the other guys fled by car instead of going 
after you (or they will soon).  In any case, there will be three guys in the 
auto parking lot that are invincible to Dwayne's men and police fire.  You 
can try firing on them from the alley but I wouldn't recommend it since it 
almost always attracts the police.  One of the enemies that is  killable by 
Dwayne's men is usually roaming around the front of the parking lot, it's 
easy to tell which one is killable in this way because he will falter when 
shot by Dwayne's men.  The tricky part - which took me five tries the second 
time around I tried to do this - is to cause a chain reaction among all the 
cars to get all three guys killed.  Basically you want to be a certain 
distance away so that they shoot your car without hurting you or Dwayne's men 
too much.  Once your car is on fire drive up to the left-most guy and make 
sure your car (which should be on fire) will chain next to two other cars - 
especially the one the guy on the left is hiding behind.  Get out and sprint 
away, you should be out of armor by now but still in okay health.  Ideally at 
least one of Dwayne's guys will survive for your final kill too.  If 
everything goes right, the ensuing explosion chain will take out all your 
enemies except one guy who flees by car.  If this doesn't happen you'll need 
to try to explode any stragglers with Dwayne's car (which is why it is longer 
but better to take Jimmy's car previously in the mission.) Don't fire any 
shots near the dealership as it will attract the police.  After this, there 
should be one (but occasionally two) guys in cars attempting to flee to the 
south.  Jog down there and you will find one (or both) ramming into a wall.  
Walk up to them and convince him to get out by blasting his tires (if he 
doesn't get out on his own).  Dwayne's guys will make short work of him after 
that, but if they died you can try calling the police or getting him to fire 
at his own vehicle until he explodes with it.  At the end of the day you 
should have only one kill (from the shotgunner) and no stars.

OBSOLETE: After a minute long chase they will eventually arrive at a car 
dealership, drive close enough to get the message 'kill them all' to trigger 
some of them to chase you.  They'll jump out of the car and there will be 
seven guys total that you have to take down.  A major complication is that 
there are four of them that Dwayne's guys or the police can't seem to kill.  
One of them will be coming at you with a shotgun, and three of them will be 
at the dealership.  Any attempt by another person other than your self 
doesn't seem to do any damage.  I tried to explode the shotgun guy and that 
didn't work either.

OBSOLETE: Aside from those four particular guys, there are three that may be 
killed by Dwayne's friends or the police.  Drive into an alley off the main 
road so you hopefully don't attract the police yet.  The non-shotgun guy can 
be killed by Dwayne's guys.  After they are down, there will be a guy in car 
who may either be attempting to run you down or driving away.  Don't panic, 
he never gets very far and won't cause you to fail the mission.  Use the car 
you got from Dwayne's guys to roll up next to him, and get out so your 
opponent will get out as well.  He goes down pretty quickly from Dwayne's 
guys.

OBSOLETE: There should be four guys left.  Approach from the alley to the car 
dealership and pelt the guys down to two or less bars of life.  The police 
may be on you at this point but don't restart because you eventually get two 
stars anyway regardless.  One of the guys that is on the outer edge of the 
car dealer ship can be killed by Dwayne's guys, so let them do their thing.  
Finish off the other three.  When they are dead you will get two stars 
attained (if you don't have two already).  If the car you had from Dwayne's 
friends is totaled, you can potentially use the one that you chased around 
town to get away from the police.  Running on foot takes a little longer but 
in my opinion is safer than accidentally picking the wrong car and it 
counting as a steal.

Once you escape, one more kill and no stars.  If that is the case, go back to 
your safe house and save.  Phil Bell and Grevelli Gambetti will open up for 
you.

Before anything make sure you have full health and armor, then take a cab to 
Phil Bell.  You're going to steal a bunch of heroin for this mission.  You 
can ride his car to the truck but you are better off locating a cab and 
taking that to the truck.  Drive around to the boatyard; don't forget to pay 
the toll going over the bridge.  When you get there, Phil will start talking 
to the guys guarding the H.  Get out and get ready for a firefight.  Everyone 
here can be knocked out, so do so without killing them.  Beware the explosive 
barrels; Phil can shoot them without penalizing you however.  Try to watch 
his back because he could die.  There are many people above you so if you 
take some hits and can't discern the location, it's probably above you.  
There is some health on the left side of the interior, and armor also on your 
left outside near the boat.

Ideally you'll have at least full body armor and a third of your health for 
the next part.  Get in the boat - which will count as a steal - and follow 
Phil Bell.  Soon you will have two boats with guys and automatics chasing 
you.  Don't kill them or even shoot back.  Position yourself between Phil 
Bell and your enemies so you and your boat soak the hits.  This takes about a 
minute and a half, but they aren't good shots, so you should survive.  After 
awhile your enemies will stop chasing you, and Phil will dock.  The mission 
will be over and you shouldn't have any new crimes other than stealing a 
boat.  Phil, Gambetti, and Jimmy will have missions for you at this point.  
But first, go home and save!

UPDATE: When you get to the building, watch the cutscene where Phil tells you 
that you can go underground.  It makes the mission slightly easier.  Go down 
there and look for a passage on the left side.  

Its best to have armor for this mission, so get some and save.  Take a cab to 
Phil, he'll have a car for you again but you can take a cab if you see one 
before you reach the destination.  This is a pretty touch mission but you can 
complete it without committing any new crimes.  Go around the side and find 
the entrance.  Shoot the door open if you know which one it is.  Two guys 
will run outside so incapacitate them.  Sometimes people on the sidewalk will 
shoot at you but you can just down them as well without killing them.

Once inside, approach the second level carefully.  There are approximately 
twenty guys in this building.  There will be guys shooting you from all 
angles on your way up to the second floor.  Sometimes a guy will enter behind 
you as you ascend the stares and start shooting at you with a pistol.  When 
the second floor is clear, go to the third floor but be careful, once again 
there will be bad guys that can nail you from a few angles when you reach a 
certain point.  Charlie will run off soon but don't run after him blindly; 
you won't lose the mission if you take a long time gunning the others down.  
When you get up to the fourth floor there will be a few guys utilizing cover, 
so shoot them in the leg or hands to make them stumble out.  When they are 
all out of action, locate the window.

The window will lead to the roof but you don't have to jump down quite yet, 
you can nail two guys from your vantage point pretty easily.  There will be 
about ten or eleven guys on the roofs.  Some of them will be on the edges of 
the roof and tend to tumble down when shot.  One guy, however, will fall onto 
a wooden bridge without dying so you have to pelt him to unconsciousness.  
Don't feel pressured to chase Charlie; he'll wait for you while you shoot up 
the place.  After you go up a couple ladders he will jump onto the chopper.  
Luckily the chopper will stay in place so Charlie can stabilize and climb 
into it, which takes him forever.  Ignore the guy from the chopper shooting 
you (I hope you have more than half health left) and focus on the rear 
propeller.  After more than half a clip from your assault rifle, the chopper 
will go down in a cut scene but none of the fires or kills will count against 
you.

After it's all done, make your way back to the ground (or commit suicide) and 
take a cab to a safe house.  You should have no new crimes.  Save.

Get some armor and then take a cab to Jimmies.  You're pretty much expected 
to clean up his mess and kill his personal body guard Anthony.  Take a cab to 
the hospital and put away your guns.  After you enter, turn right.  Turn 
right again at the receptionist's desk and get dressed in the scrubs.  Don't 
run when you go to Anthony or you'll get shot at.  Jump on his bed and stab 
him a couple times.  Don't stab him too much or it will count against you.  
When you get the message to move quickly, sprint out of the hospital.  There 
is some health to the right of the exit if you need it.

UPDATE:  It is much easier to pull the plug on his life support, which is to 
the right of the witness, than stab him.  After you pull the plug, WALK out 
of the room and down the hallway (running tips off the police immediately).  
You'll pick up two stars before you exit the hallway but outrunning the 
police is much easier.  A reminder: shooting the police is a no-no because it 
will put one more star on your record.

Once outside, you have to evade the police.  If you brought a car, you can 
use it to escape (or use a pay and spray).  Otherwise, just sprint around 
some alleys until you lose them.  When it's all said and done, you should 
have two more stars attained but no other crimes.  Go to a safe house and 
save.

Get armor and then take a cab to Gambetti at the hospital in Schottler.  
Bernie's lover still seems to be getting blackmailed by Dimitri and the 
Russians.  Your goal, however, is to protect a guy giving a speech on the 
threat the Russians represent as organized crime.  Take a cab to the Grand 
Easton Terminal.

Once there, you will have a car waiting.  Bobby Jefferson, the speech giver, 
will get in behind you.  Stay within the convoy, which is boring but you 
won't have to worry about pedestrians.  At a road block you will be ambushed.  
The first thing you want to do is turn around and run north through the alley 
so all of your opponents are forced to face you from one direction instead of 
you being surrounded.  Then, call Dwayne's boys and get them over to you.  
Next shoot the attackers on the roof, they will fall with one bullet and it 
won't count against you.  After that, whittle down all your attackers to near 
death, then wait for Dwayne's people to arrive.  UPDATE: tag the guys on the 
roof because they will fall down and die immediately, which doesn't count 
against you, and because Dwayne's guys aren't good at shooting people above 
them.  The faster you act the better, because there are other agents that can 
assist you but they die eventually.  There is health in the alley behind you 
where you started if you need it, or you can call an ambulance.

When they get there, use their car and have them clean up the riff raff.  
Don't get any finishing shots or it will count against you.  More  
reinforcements show up when a certain amount die, so try to whittle them down 
before Dwayne's guys have to deal with them.  Remember, they tend to be more 
accurate and don't have any injury animation while in either their car or one 
of the convoy's cars.  Ideally they will all be dead before Dwayne's guys 
die, but if they aren't you can try finishing them off.  For some reason you 
can take down some of them without it counting against you, but most will 
crook and you will have to restart.  There are three waves total (beware, 
some spawn next to you sometimes) but it is quite possible to injure them all 
while having Dwayne's boys or security clean them up so there or no crimes on 
your hands.  

After this Bobby will come out of hiding and hop in whatever you vehicle you 
have, so make sure you aren't moving or it'll count as a person run down.  
Try and get a fresh car for the last part, you have to lose some more guys.  
Generally it's better to zig zag around town through tight areas so they 
crash a lot, but it's also possible just to pick one direction and gun it as 
fast as you can, which I have done with one blown tire, but your mileage may 
vary.  After you lose the Russians, carefully take Bobby to the destination.  
After a conversation with Gambetti Gravelli, Check your stats to make sure 
you don't have any more crimes, and then go to a safe house to save.

UPDATE: I've been having trouble doing consistent runs when calling Dwayne's 
guys before the chase.  They occasionally blast the first car until guys roll 
out and I hit them, or cause police cars chasing to stop which forces me to 
evade the police and immediately get two more stars.  However, calling them 
after getting to the alley means they forget how to enter a car with you, and 
won't be effective in dealing with the police.  The happy medium?  Before 
entering the alley after the chase, call Dwayne up and get his guys over.  
Stay in the police radius while driving back and forth to avoid the police.  
Frankie also has some stopping power of his own if a patrolman gets in your 
face on foot.  Just make sure you one of Dwayne's guys who has the automatic 
in your car before you enter the alley, he is crucial to your success in the 
ensuing firefight.  Any of the two guys who enter your car before you enter 
the alley will later enter any car you get into.  This mission is my new 
nemesis, I forgot how easy it is for one thing to go wrong and cause a 
restart.  

This is one of the harder missions, but you have experienced worse.  If need 
be, rest a couple times (go to bed without saving) so Dwayne's friends will 
be ready to help you again when you call them.  Get some armor and Take a cab 
to Phil's.  You can take his intruder again to the old mansion until you run 
into a cab.  

When your ready to roll, you will find a trunk full of Phil's contraband, and 
you'll get two stars immediately.  Go after Phil; don't hit any feds on your 
way out.  It's better to let the one Fed run up to the car, and then you 
should back out and go around him.  Stay directly behind Phil so the police 
never lose sight of you, or else your going to have to stay in their sight so 
that you don't evade the police and have them find you again (which will 
happen when you approach Phil, and you'll get more stars this way, aka 
restart).  There is one part with a major road between Berchiem and Alderny 
City where you really have to stay on Phil's butt or you will lose the police 
then have them spot you and you will have to restart.  Generally you'll run 
around southbound for a bit, but after a couple minutes Phil will call and 
say he is gonna bail on foot, which you should do as well.  This part 
requires much skill and luck, you will probably end up doing this over ten 
tries.  If you look at your stats during the chase, be aware there is a fade-
out and fade-in period where the game is still running but you can't see 
completely, so make sure you are punching the gas when pausing and unpausing.  
UPDATE: as noted above, make sure you get Dwayne's guys in your car before 
entering the alley.

You'll get involved in a heavy firefight in an alley way.  Your stars will 
soon become three.  If you haven't called Dwayne's posse over at this point, 
do so now (they will be reluctant to get into any cars however if you waited 
this long.  Your primary objective is to make sure Bell doesn't die, but you 
also can't get the last shot on any of the police or SWAT.  You can, however, 
take their police cars when the opportunity presents it self, which will help 
Dwayne's friends immensely since they have better aim in a car (I recommend 
just sprinting forward and taking the first one while taking a bullet or two.  
After you take enough police and SWAT down, Bell and Frankie will take off.  
Follow Bell and Frankie up the stairs to the van.  Frankie will die at some 
point so get the heroin (update: he doesn't have to die but it doesn't matter 
if he does or doesn't, you just have to grab the H.  DON'T blow up the 
helicopter, when you get the message to shoot it the helicopter just hop in 
the van instead to trigger the escape phase.  You can try to escape in the 
van or get into a faster car such as a police vehicle you probably recently 
appropriated.

Now it will be a standard chase sequence, more cars will spawn as will 
pedestrians, so be careful.  Make your way to a pay and spray unless you have 
a police car, in which case you're going to have to evade them the old 
fashioned way.  Generally with three stars its okay if a lot of them catch up 
to you (as long as you or Ray don't die) because when you speed off, more 
can't spawn in front of you since they are too many already behind you.  
However you evade them, take Bell to his safe house, then take a cab to a 
safe house of your own.  Check to make sure you have no other crimes aside 
from the three stars you have attained, and then save.  Jimmy's thread will 
open back up to you as well.

Dwayne's guys should be available to you (sleep once) but body armor is also 
a good idea for this mission.  Grab a cab to Gambetti Gravelli.  He'll have a 
lead on Darko Brevic for you, but first you'll have to take out some Korean 
counterfeiters, one of which is Kim from earlier in the game.  Head over to 
Mr. Fuk's restaurant by cab.

When you get there you will be rejected, but go ahead to the right anyway.  
There will be a lot of guys with automatics, most of them with high powered 
assault rifles.  Try to get away from the entrance because sometimes the 
police will come, which means a restart for you.  You can take them all out 
without killing them.  When you reach the second landing, some guys will 
spawn on the upper floor behind you so beware.  When you reach the manager 
point a gun at him and he will say Kim left.  Take the armor and exit.  Two 
more guys will be here from the kitchen area, with more inside the kitchen 
which is directly across from you.  Take them down as well.  Try not to blast 
the chef.  In the kitchen there is health, as you approach a red dot will 
appear which will be Kim, so chase him down.

When you get to the fire escape, jump to the ground even though you take some 
damage.  Grab the bike as it won't count as a steal.  Don't chase him 
immediately, dial up Dwayne's guys and then start chasing.  Don't ride Kim 
too much because his body will blast you with a pistol.  After a minute or so 
Dwayne's guys will appear with their car (hopefully - otherwise you need to 
wait until Kim passes one of your safe houses with one of your cars).  When 
they catch up get off your bike and get in their car as fast as possible, and 
go after Kim but don't run over Dwayne's guys or anybody else.  After you 
catch back up to Kim, Dwayne's guys will shoot up the passenger with a 
pistol.  They won't finish the job for some reason however so ram Kim for a 
few minutes.  He won't jump out until his car catches on fire, and he will 
burn to death.  His death, the fire, nor the ensuing explosion(s) will count 
against you.

Find a cab and go back to your safe house.  You shouldn't have any new 
crimes.  Save.

Cab it over Gambetti at the hospital.  You have to destroy some vans full of 
cocaine that the Russians have.  Take another cab over to the compound in 
Alderny City.  Before walk to the marker, make sure you should have plenty of 
assault rifle ammo and body armor for the next part.  You can also call 
Dwayne's guys to back you up.  You can take their car and bash the fence down 
if they have trouble climbing it.  There is also a random car for the taking 
next to the fence that you can use; it's unlocked and doesn't count as a 
steal.

Approach the fence when you are ready to fight.  There are about twenty guys 
on the ground and ten on the roof with various weaponry.  This part is very 
important and maybe a good argument for not bring Dwayne's boys along - Make 
sure that when you shoot somebody unconscious, their body doesn't block the 
path of the van.  That includes the main alleyway as well as the parking 
spots where they start out.  If one of the vans is blocked by a body you can 
still complete the mission without committing any crime but it's a tricky 
endeavor.

Generally, you are better off gunning them down on foot instead of letting 
your friend's do all the dirty work from a car; you can die pretty quickly 
from all the fire.  Sometimes you can look at what Dwayne's friends are 
shooting at in order to pinpoint your enemies, in addition to trying to lock 
on cycling.  Don't use the sniper rifle because it will count as a kill if 
you get the last shot in with it.  For some reason ambulances don't show up 
here when called (at least not for me) so don't be a hero and try and 
conserve your health.

Half way up the alleys you will see body armor on some boxes before the 
alleys turn to your right.  There is also a ladder before the body armor if 
you want to reach the roofs to get better positioning on your enemies.  When 
you get close to the van parked farthest away, two guys will open a door 
adjacent to it and two more guys will appear on the rooftops.  Also close to 
the last van, there is some health on the wall behind a dumpster if you are 
facing south (The direction the final van is facing).  

Once everyone is taken out and you don't hear any gunfire, run to the van 
that is farthest away at the end of the alley.  If none of the vans are 
blocked in by any bodies, drive the van to a location where there aren't any 
bodies, preferably out of the alleyways completely.  Do the same with all the 
other vans.  If one of the vans was blocked in by a body, you're going to 
have to park the other vans as close as possible to it.  As long as a van is 
bumper to bumper with another van, you can also set up an explosive domino 
effect.  Tilting back on the right analog stick will make it easier to see 
objects such as bodies directly in front of you, since you get a birds-eye 
view.  

With the last van, unload some rifle bullets into the front of it where the 
grill is until you start to see black smoke.  Usually the black smoke will 
start after slightly less than a full 30 bullet clip.  Get in the van, get 
near the other vans and ram the van you are driving a couple times into a 
wall until you see some light fire.  You now will have about fifteen seconds 
before the van will explode, so park the van next to the other vans and 
sprint away.  Fifteen seconds isn't a lot of time but it's enough to deal 
with positioning the van correctly and giving you time to escape.  If the 
vans were positioned correctly, they will all eventually explode and none of 
this will count against you in terms of killing anybody nearby or fires 
started.

After the assets are liquidized, take a cab to a safe house and make sure no 
new crimes were committed.  Congrats, the Gambetti mission thread is done.  
Save.

All that's left should be Jimmy Pegorino's, so take a cab to his place.  Ray, 
Bell and Jimmy will be having a meeting.  Once again, Jimmy's having "real 
problems".  Jimmy will want you to kill somebody so nobody goes to jail.  You 
can go back and save for now, this is a two parter.  It's also a good idea to 
get body armor and ammo if you need it.

Whenever you're ready to answer Mr. Pegorino's call - he usually calls in the 
day time - he'll tell you to find Ray.  Take a cab to Ray in East Holland and 
get backup from Dwayne, and take the car they bring.   Follow them around 
discretely for awhile.  If they get jammed up ram into the offending cars to 
free up your targets.  Once they reach the gas station, drive up and engage 
them.  Break the window and fire a shot off if Dwayne's guys don't start 
blasting right away.  Once the firefight is started Ray and his driver will 
try to escape.  Let Dwayne's guys take everyone out, then follow Ray quickly.  
He'll drive to Broker, consult your map to pick the right highway routes.

Ram Ray's car until it gets jammed up and can't move easily, then get out and 
shoot out their tires.  They should get out once they can't move and Dwayne's 
guys should take them out, but you can get back in your car to speed up the 
process.  If one or both go down but the red marker is still above their 
head, ram your car until it is on fire then park it next to them to finish 
them off.

It could take a few tries but when it's successfully completed, go to a safe 
house and check your stats.  You shouldn't have any new crimes.  Save.  If 
U.L. Paper calls, don't answer until you save.

U. L. Paper should be calling you shortly.  He found the man you've been 
after all this time, Darko Brevic.  Go grab Roman at Firefly Island, near his 
old apartment.  After that take a cab to the destination and jog the rest of 
the way so Roman can keep up.  If you decide to kill Darko, do it execution 
style so it doesn't count against you.  Take a cab to Brucie's and drop Roman 
off, then go and save.  You should have no new crimes.  You can answer Jimmy 
if you want to, it won't trigger a mission immediately.  Save.

IMPORTANT:  Choose the Revenge path to commit one less crime.

We are at the final stretch and you have a decision to make.  Before you 
start make sure you are maxed out on ammo and have body armor.  Take a cab to 
Jimmy who is at a strip club.  He'll want you to do a heroin deal with your 
nemesis Dimitri.  You can go ahead and do it (you'll be betrayed) or you can 
go kill Dimitri, which will result in one less boat steal, making it the 
"correct" choice for this type of game.  After you talk to Roman and Kate, 
you can then choose which path to take.  Deal is a little better initially 
but a bit harder on the final mission; revenge is pretty hard but makes the 
final mission slightly easier.

REVENGE - A Dish Served Cold. [REV1]

This will feel a lot like the bank heist mission, but with no chase scene at 
the end.  It's long and tedious, but easier then many of the missions you 
have had to complete.  Take a cab to the boat where Dimitri is.  There will 
be many guards in front of the boat in addition to on it, feel free to blast 
away.  Everybody here can be blasted unconscious.  When you get on the boat 
there are some with assault rifles that can hit you at very long ranges 
(longer than you can target them with your assault rifle) so it may help to 
hide behind certain objects so they aren't in your line of site.  When 
approaching, listen to make sure shots aren't really loud because it could 
mean someone is really close to you and can snap off much of your health.  On 
the north end of the boat (to the right of where you board it) there is some 
body armor if you climb a couple ladders.

Once you make it to the south end you can enter the kitchen area where there 
will be three guys.  Once they are taken care of you can grab some health on 
the counter.  There will be a guy on the stairs leading up.  At the top of 
the stairs there will be three guys that tend to blind fire, so shoot their 
hands and make them stumble around.  It's generally better take out the 
closest ones first and to expose yourself to one of them at a time before 
moving on to your next target.  There is body armor in the second room to the 
right.  You can go outside to the right or the left, but when you do beware a 
guy that will roll out into your view.  Wait till he stands a bit before you 
shoot him or you may risk getting a head shot.  There will also be quite a 
few guys above and behind you as you move into the open, so when you hear 
fire, turn around and light them up.

There will be a guy in the control room; after he is taken down there will be 
a cut scene that opens the cargo bay.  After this scene many enemies will 
spawn in places that you have already cleaned, so don't be complacent on your 
way out.  The health and body armor also respawn after this scene.  Take the 
ten or so guys out on your way back down to the cargo area (it should be 
easier to get down than up since you can jump off the sides).  Before you 
jump into the cargo area below, shoot the guys that you can see from your 
vantage point.  Depending which part you jump down, you could take some fall 
damage so try to find a location that isn't a far jump.

When you get down there will be a few more guys, there is some health in the 
back (on the north end) if you need it.  Once you approach Dimitri, four guys 
will spawn and start shooting you.  Either shoot back right away or find more 
efficient cover.  Some of them will advance on you so I recommend taking out 
the guy with the shot gun first if it is convenient to do so.  You don't 
actually have to take all of them out.  Dimitri blind fires quite a bit, once 
the initial heat dies down and you have your bearings straight, you can get 
pretty far away and climb on one of the boxes and its very unlikely that 
Dimitri will hit you.  If he does it won't do much damage, and from that 
distance you can snipe Dimitri in the head at your leisure.  After about ten 
hits, a scene will occur and you have the opportunity to execute Dimitri.  
Get out your pistol and do so.  Once he is dead anybody you left alive on the 
boat will vanish, so go up to the deck and jump off the boat back to land.  
The mission will be over, your revenge complete.

Take a cab home.  You shouldn't have any new crimes to your name.  Save.  The 
next mission you will have for picking this path will be Out of Commission.

DEAL - If the Price is Right: [DEA1]

The mission you will have for deciding to deal with Dimitri will be to work 
with Phil Bell and sell the heroin.  Take a cab over there and enter the 
docks.  In a shocking turn of events, Dimitri betrayed you.  Follow Phil 
around to the roof.  Phil will shoot some glass and jump down, so follow him.

There will be a few guys shooting at you as you land.  Blast them all, 
prioritize the closest ones first.  Try to make sure Phil isn't getting shot 
up.  Remember not to kill anybody; you can knock all of these guys out.  Make 
your way to the yellow marker.  As you go down you will find enemies spawning 
above and below you.  

At some point Phil Bell will run off up some stairs.  There is some health in 
front of those stairs if you need it, be sure to follow Phil though.  After 
about fifteen more guys attacking you from various angles, Phil will break 
through a door.  A guy will be running off with all the money, so chase him 
down.  Don't feel too pressured, you have time to shoot any remaining guys on 
your way back down.  When get outside he will drive away in a big van, so 
grab the truck and go after him.

Drive around the compound after him.  As usual be careful not to hit anybody.  
Let Phil do the shooting.  Try to dodge the barrels that fall out, and beware 
the environment that seems to impede you from the van driver's reckless 
driving.  There are a couple scripted events but they shouldn't hold you up 
for too long.  After Phil blasts the van for awhile it will start to go on 
fire and the guy with the money will get out and start shooting you.  Phil 
doesn't seem to hurt him, so peck him in the leg a couple times so he will 
stay near the van when it blows up.  If the van explosion doesn't kill him 
your gonna have to get creative to get that money without committing any more 
crimes.

When he explodes, grab the cash without getting you or Phil on fire.  Take 
Phil back home.  After he runs off the mission is over, so check your stats.  
You shouldn't have any new crimes, go to a safe house and save.  Skip the 
next mission because that is the one after Revenge, the last one below that 
will be for you.

Put on a nice suite and black loafers.  After a few phone calls, you'll be 
expected to pick up Kate.  Grab any car you have and go there.  Once you pick 
her up you can get out when you see a cab and take it to the wedding.  Jimmy 
shoots Kate and you run off, you will find yourself at the South Bohan safe 
house.  Little Jacob will call you with a plan, so go to the car where he and 
Roman will be waiting.  It's not the easiest car to drive, get used to the 
physics - it tends to drift around.  You'll chase after Jimmy's goons around 
the city for a couple minutes; you can't kill them yet so just follow him 
around.  They occasionally make a few unexpected moves so don't follow too 
closely.  Eventually they'll stop at the old casino.

Little Jacob and Roman will run off, so you have to take these guys out on 
your own.  Dwayne won't help you here either.  Knocking them out should be 
second nature for you.  If at any time you die or fail, you can restart the 
mission at this point without having to chase them around town again (but you 
will have to restart if you kill somebody).  They have some decent weapons, 
so don't be a hero.  You're mostly going to have to shoot them through car 
windows or shoot their feet to get them out of cover.  The cars tend to blow 
up really easily so be careful not to hit them.  There are also three or so 
guys on the roofs, they tend to fall off fairly readily.  You can climb the 
hill to your left if you want to get a better vantage point on some of them.  
Don't hesitate to climb up that same hill and call an ambulance by the road 
if you are low on health.  Once you make it to the interior there will be 
about five more.  Shoot the guys that you can see from outside, and once you 
enter immediately take out the guy on your left that is on the stairs.  To 
the right of the stairs is health which you may need at this point.  As you 
approach Jimmy you guys will exchange words and he will sprint away.

Follow him to the rooftop, where he will have three or four guys that tend to 
fall off the roof when shot.  You can jump off and take some damage or slide 
down the ladder.  Jimmy's reinforcements will arrive at this point; don't 
rush to take them out (there are maybe ten of them, mostly with assault 
weapons).  After you run up to Jimmy who is starting up a boat, another car 
enemies will show up.  You can take them down or ignore them and descend do 
the dock.  Grab the bike that is waiting for you, it doesn't count as a 
steal.

Follow Jimmy around on the coast of the water, but not too close since you 
can get shot by his automatic.  The chase on bike takes about two minutes, 
sometime after the one minute mark there is a jump that requires you to gain 
some speed.  After that there will be a ramp that you can use to land on to 
the helicopter Little Jacob and Roman are in.  If you wait till long you'll 
miss the jump so go full throttle when you notice it.  Jam A repeatedly to 
climb onto the chopper.

Follow the boat but don't bother shooting at it.  Eventually you'll get 
tagged by a missile and crash land on Happiness Island.  Chase Jimmy down, 
he'll have some guys on the Island so shoot them.  The police will be alerted 
at some point and you'll get a couple stars, but they won't really interfere.  
Shoot Jimmy in the chest until he goes down.  Niko will talk some smack 
before he ends his misery.

Check your stats.  You should have two more stars but no other crimes.  If 
that is the case, then congratulations!  You have successfully conquered the 
Pacifist Niko Challenge.  Here are the ending stats you should have (or 
perhaps even less if you know something I don't!) 

Don't forget to save!

Put on a nice suite and black loafers.  After a few phone calls, go to

at the South Bohan safe house.  Little Jacob will call you with a plan, so go 
to the car where he will be waiting.  It's not the easiest car to drive, so 
get used to how it tends to drift around.  You'll chase after Jimmy's goons 
around the city for a couple minutes; you can't kill them yet so just follow 
him around.  They occasionally make a few unexpected moves, cutting into 
oncoming traffic at one point, so don't follow too closely.  Eventually 
they'll stop at the old casino.

Little Jacob will run off to obtain an exit strategy, so you have to take 
these guys out on your own.  Dwayne won't help you here either.  Knocking 
Dimitri's men out should be second nature for you.  If at any time you die or

Jimmy, and the chase is on after Dimitri.

Follow him to the rooftop, where he will have four or five of Dimitri's men 
that tend to fall off the roof when shot.  There is one straight in front of 
you, one to the left and three on the right.  After you take them down, you 
can jump off and take some damage or slide down the ladder.  Dimitri will be 
taking off in a helicopter, so sprint for the boat.  Put away your assault 
rifle so you run faster.  He'll fire at you with missiles and bullets but 
don't let it deter you.  Also, don't panic getting in because if you mess up 
Dimitri will probably get away.  Furthermore, if you get in the boat and he 
does escape, you will have to restart completely because it counts as a 
steal.  

Follow Dimitri around on the northern coast of the island.  Don't concern 
your self too much about getting shot by the chopper, but if you find 
yourself taking damage back off a bit.  After a minute or so Jacob will 
arrive in a chopper, so get under him.  Jam the A button when you leap off 
the boat to get into the helicopter.

Follow Dimitri's chopper but don't bother shooting at it, just concentrate on 
flying after him.  Higher is safer even though you are instructed to stay 
low.  Eventually you'll get tagged by a missile and crash land on Happiness 
Island.  Chase Dimitri down, he'll have some of his men on the Island so 
shoot them.  The police will be alerted at some point and you'll get a couple 
stars, but they usually won't interfere.  Shoot Dimitri in the chest until he

********************* FINAL THOUGHTS [FIN1] *************************

V1.50 final thoughts: Did pretty much what I expected, netting thirty less 
kills but only four less stars.  Chungarunga has done some pretty marvelous 
stuff with the PS3 version that I have yet to Verify, but I'm going to quote 
some of his methods and post the theoretical ending stats - assuming I can 
replicate them on the XBOX 360 (and assuming I have the talent to do so, some 
of this is pretty tricky).  Furthermore, I don't think he is quite done, 
indicating he may be able to get those kills lower still.  In my next version 
I intend to replicate what he has done.  Below are specifics on what he has 
improved upon and his posts on the PS3 boards (search for crimeless, not on 
the social boards).

EVERYTHING BELOW IS ALL QUOTED FROM CHUNGARUNGA AND NOT MY PERSONAL WORK.

V1.51 update: Incredibly enough, Chungarunga managed to beat this game on the 
PS3 version without any kills.  Go to the PS3 GTA4 boards (not the social ones) 
and search for crimeless.  He has typed out all his strategies there, which I 
will verify work with the XBOX 360.  Below is a mere fraction of what he has 
accomplished.  Once verified, I will quote his exact words and type in my own 
additions if I deem it necessary.

=======================================================================

Mission 12: Concrete Jungle - six less kills.

"Finally i have completed "Concrete Jungle" with 0 kills. 
 
Preparation for this mission involves getting a Firetruck and a bike and 
storing them in the parking space. 
 
Get in the Firetruck and go to the alleyway. Now use the water cannon to 
spray those guys into a corner and keep ramming the truck into a wall while 
spraying them. If the truck breaks down without exploding stop spraying, 
press up on the d-pad and start spraying them again. Now you can enter 911 to 
start the Firetruck up again. When it's burning corner all three of the 
targets and make sure that all of them will die or else you'll have to start 
this all over again. 
 
When they are dead go to Jacob and take a Taxi trip to the bike. After 
getting the bike go to the house where the rest of the gang is. Ride into the 
arrow and when Jacob jumps off start ramming the bike into walls until it's 
smoking black. 
 
Now go to the door. It will take some luck to kill this first guy on the 
stairs. I suggest to use an Assault rifle. Shoot him a few times in the upper 
part of his leg, this will make him climb a bit higher. When he's low on 
health shoot him in the foot. He should fall down the stairs and the gravity 
should kill him but as i said this involves some luck. 
 
Now go the bike and ram it until it's burning. Ride into the room where 
everyone else are while shooting the Shotgun guy's legs or wait until he is 
reloading. Leave the bike in the middle of all three guys and run for the 
health which is on the kitchen table. If all goes well then they should 
explode along with the bike."

=======================================================================

Mission 29: Luck of the Irish - 8 less kills 

""Luck of the Irish" done with 0 kills. 
 
You can't incapacitate anyone here but i have another strategy. 
 
When you are in the sniping position you will notice that there are two red 
barrels. These are barrels not orange propane tanks. Anyway these won't count 
as kills if you shoot them. One of them is to the right and other is at the 
back and to the left. 
 
Shoot the one that is to the right of you as soon as the shootout starts. It 
will kill two or three guys. Now concentrate on Packie because one guy will 
attack him. If you shoot this guy in the foot in won't be considered as a 
kill. 
 
After this is done another wave of enemies will come. It's time to shoot the 
second barrel as soon as they are running past it. 
 
Only one guy will be left and he will run to the van. Shoot the van until it 
starts smoking black and let Packie and his boy to shoot it till it starts 
burning. The van explodes, mission complete."

=======================================================================

Mission 34: Deconstruction for Beginners - 2 less kills

"Deconstruction for Beginners" done with 0 kills. 
 
Everyone in this mission are incapacitable except for the four main targets. 
 
Go to the roof with X and take out three lookouts. After this is done aim to 
the place where the second main target will be and take out those guys by 
shooting their legs. 
 
Go back to the street and aim at the first foreman. There is a red barrel 
next to him. Shoot it and he will die. 
 
Second and third foremen will be a bit harder to kill. It seems like 
exploding vehicles don't damage them but they are walkable. Incapacitate all 
regular guys and shoot the second foreman in the leg with an Assault Rifle. 
He will fall on the ground and now run over him with Niko until he dies. 
 
The same applies to the third foreman. 
 
The fourth will be easy. Shoot him in the back while he's climbing the 
ladder.

I will post strategies to missions where Micskill had to kill someone. 

=======================================================================

Mission 31: The Puerto Rican Connection - 1 less kill
 
"The Puerto Rican Connection" - 0 kills. 
 
Get a car and follow the train to its destination. Once you're there cover 
the entrance from where the targets will come out with a car and get out. 
 
They can't be incapacitated but they are walkable and cops can kill them. 
 
They will mindlessly bump into a car without realising that there is a an 
obstacle in front of them. Now call 911 and go near the targets. After maybe 
30 seconds they will start to shoot you and will attract police attention. 
The main guy without a weapon will run to the opposite direction but the rest 
will fight with cops. Chase that guy and walk him to the death, if the rest 
are still alive call for more backup.

=======================================================================

Mission 37: Photo Shoot - 1 less kill

"Photo Shoot" - 0 kills 
 
After taking a photo of the group wait till X calls. Shoot the target with a 
sniper rifle to times in the leg. It won't count as a kill.

=======================================================================

Ending stats utilizing Chungarunga's amazing work:

PEOPLE KILLED: 24 
CARS STOLEN: 0
BIKES STOLEN: 0
BOATS STOLEN: 4
HELICOPTERS STOLEN: 1
STARS ATTAINED: 34
PEOPLE RUN DOWN: 0
FIRES STARTED: 0
CRIMINALS KILLED: 0

42 kills (my final score) - 18 kills (using Chungarunga's improvements) = 24 
kills.  Ridiculous.  If someone were playing normally, they could easily 
exceed that kill count on a mission such as Three Leaf Clover alone (bank 
heist mission).

Disclaimer: While I haven't detected any coding differences when it comes to 
tracking crime stats between the XBOX 360 or the PS3, I could be wrong and it 
is possible that there are some tricks you can do in the PS3 version that 
can't be replicated on the XBOX 360.  In my next version I will test 
Chungarunga's methods and verify them. 

=============================================================================

V1.00 final thoughts: I am certain this run can be more efficient crime wise.  
The waste Not Want Knots mission comes to mind, there is probably a way 
around killing the three guys on the walkway.  I also feel like utilizing 
Dwayne's men sooner may result in a few less deaths in a few missions.  
Perhaps some creative explosions or utilizing the environment can also help.  
In the end I suspect this run could be improved more then twenty less kills 
and six less stars attained.

I need help however.  If you can find a more efficient way to do a mission 
than I, please shoot me an email with a detailed explanation of the 
particular mission and your method.  I will, of course, give credit where 
credit is due.

I started the Pacifist Niko game intending to commit zero crimes.  I don't 
think it's possible at this time, but who knows?
