Grand Theft Auto3 is all about possibility. At any given point in the game, you can do one of a million things. Listen to the radio. Car jack someone. Double-cross the mob. Give someone an illegal taxicab ride. Or just beat on him with a bat. If you can think it, you can pretty much do it... that's the beauty of the game. Set in Liberty City, Grand Theft Auto 3 is seemingly alive, teeming with hundreds of city dwellers, all of which are fully interactive. Each one has his own agenda. Businessmen hurry to work, bums get in your way, hookers hustle for the almighty dollar, and gang members conduct their surly business all over Liberty City. If you interrupt their lives, they'll let you know about it. Some will chase you. Others will run in fear. Some will call their buddies to bust your chops. Your goal is to work your way up the corrupt chain of command of Liberty City's gangs. Along the way, you'll have to lie, cheat and steal, and even kill to claw your way to the top. You'll be helped by many implements of destruction: Uzi's, baseball bats, assault rifles, rocket launchers, grenades, Molotov cocktails, flame throwers and more. Of course, there could be no robbers without cops. Liberty City is protected by a bevy of law enforcement: from the petty beat cop to high ranking FBI officials and even the Army. Conduct your shady deals out of sight, or suffer the consequences. The police are always on the lookout for criminal behavior, and will put you down if you're not careful. Luckily, there are a lot of places to run and hide. Liberty City boasts three separate districts: Portland, Staunton Island and Shoreside Vale. Each is unique in its architecture, inhabitants and automobiles. But each also has plenty of places to get into trouble. Sound complex? It is. But IGN Guides is here to help. With a full walkthrough, tips on how to get ahead, districts information and hints on how to beat Johnny Law, this is the most comprehensive guide you'll find anywhere on the web. So, what are you waiting for? Step inside. Since GTA3 is so non-linear and missions can be completed in orders other than listed, we suggest sticking to one boss at a time until all his jobs are exhausted or you no longer can take the job without completing another (like Toni and Salvatore in Portland). We have provided optional tips on missions that have unlimited solutions, which is true for most since there are numerous ways to off someone or destroy something. In other words, you don't have to stick to the guide, but if you get stuck, we have solutions that work. Enjoy. GAME BASICS Controls (in vehicle) Select: Camera Modes Start: Pause Triangle: Exit Vehicle Circle: Drive-by weapon X: Accelerate Square: Brake or Reverse L1: Horn L2: Look Left L2 + R2: Look Behind R2: Look Right R1: Hand Brake Directional Pad: Steering L Joystick: Steering / (L3) Change Radio Stations R Joystick: Tank Turret Control/ (R3) trigger Special Missions Controls (on foot) Select: Camera Modes Start: Pause Triangle: Enter Vehicles Circle: Attack or Fire weapon X: Run Square: Jump L1: Look Forward L2: Cycle Weapon Left R2: Cycle Weapon Right R1: Target Directional Pad: Movement L Joystick: Movement R Joystick First Person Camera (R3) Look Behind The Radar The radar in the lower left corner of the screen will quickly become your best friend. You will never be left in the dark as long as you keep an eye on this devise. It will always direct you to savehouses, more work and targets within missions. The bosses are displayed on the radar by icons of their first initial and remain on the radar until all work from that boss is exhausted. Savehouses Portland, Staunton Island and Shoreside Vale all contain one area where you can go to hideout and save your game progress, these are the ‘Savehouses.’ These savehouses appear on the radar as a small house icon and only the closest one will appear on the radar. To save your progress and the vehicle you drove up in, place one vehicle in the garage (1 in Portland, but 2 possible in Shoreside and Shoreside) and enter the savehouse and save your game on a PS2 8mb Memory card. Each time you save the game 6 hours will pass in Liberty City and any damaged cars parked in the garage will be fully repaired! The 100 hidden package prizes (weapons and other power-ups) will appear at each savehouse as they are unlocked by finding packages in increments of 10. You cannot save your progress if you are currently in a mission –only before or after. Liberty City Police Stations When you get ‘Busted’ you end up at the closest police station where they take all your weapons and four hundred dollars in bribery money. When you are busted, whatever mission you were working on will end up in failure. The only time you can be arrested is when you are pulled out of a vehicle by the authorities. If you are not in a vehicle and you have a Wanted Level, they just shoot to kill (or waste) and then you end up in the hospital where the bill is larger than a bribe. Understanding Wanted Levels Looking in the top right corner of the in-game screen you’ll find a strip of six stars, this is your wanted level and it depicts just how bad you’ve been. The level increases from right to left as the stars light up to show your level of trouble. Doing nothing to relax the wanted level and continuing to add trouble on top of your existing wanted level will increase the level and with that comes greater forces of good to rain down on you. Wanted Level Ramifications of Wanted Level Lvl 1 LCPD Lvl 1 Lvl 2 LCPD Lvl 2 Lvl 3 SWAT Lvl 1 and 1 Helicopter Lvl 4 SWAT Lvl 2 Lvl 5 FBI Lvl 6 Army and 2nd Helicopter What’s Bad? The following is a list of thing that will raise your wanted level. Stealing Police Car w/cop inside Targeting police (even without pulling trigger) Fighting in cop’s sight Carjacking in cop’s sight Running into a cop car w/cop inside Fighting cops Reducing Wanted Levels The following list shows ways to lower wanted levels. Stay out of sight for a while Become Wasted (not a good choice) Complete the current mission Painting your (non-law enforcement) car at Pay ‘n’ Spray Running through Police Bribe power-ups TIPS Health Tips The following is a list of ways to increase health Find Heart power-ups Enter ambulances for 20 health points Getting wasted (fails mission but gives full health) Shooting R2 and L2 Buttons cycles through your weapons Circle button shoots the weapon Hold the R1 button for targeting While holding R1 you can switch targets by pressing R2 or L2 (depending on the direction of target) Hold down R1 targeting button to remain locked onto targets while running (Handgun, Uzi, Grenades and Molotov Cocktails) Drive-by Shooting Select the Colt 45 or the Uzi before entering the vehicle, press the R2 or L2 buttons along with the circle button to fire, and your arm will reach out the window and fire. The only way to aim your weapon at a particular target is to steer the car in the right position and use the forward and reverse to tweak your aim. Braking If you need to make sharp high speed turns, use the handbrake to flip the backend of the car in the direction of the turn. The regular brake only slow you down and force a wider, slower turn. At extremely high speeds you will have to use both brakes to avoid spinouts or turnovers. Carjacking To stop a moving vehicle, pull your car in front of the targeted vehicle. If you’re on foot, step out in front of the vehicle (at a safe distance) to stop it and then press the triangle button. As long as you are facing the car you want to steal it doesn’t matter what side of the car you are on in order to initiate the carjacking animation. Not all victims of carjackings will react the same, some will be very passive and even run away and on the opposite side of the coin, those packing heat will try to cap you. Running and Endurance Training Holding the X button and moving while on foot will make your character run. In the beginning of the game, you’ll only be able to run short distances before becoming tired and slowing down to a slow walk. If stop to take some breaths you’ll recover quicker than if you continue to walk. The more you remain on foot to travel in the game the more endurance you build up. Your character needs exercise to build up endurance. If you hike it more often you’ll soon notice longer running distances before tiring. ITEMS Health Power-ups Once obtained, these power-ups return your health to 100%. They do nothing if your health is already maxed. Armor Power-ups Gives you 100 points of added protection to your health. The armor will shield your health meter and take the hit first but when exhausted, your health meter will return to taking the brunt damage. Adrenaline Power-ups These power-ups give you hulk-like strength! Pick one up, punch someone and watch them fly through the air. Police Bribe Power-ups Run through these power-ups to lower your wanted level one star (level) at a time. Rampages When you walk through one of these icons, a Rampage Challenge will begin. In a Rampage challenge you are given a weapon with unlimited ammo and 120 seconds to complete a certain objective, which usually consists of eliminating 20 gang members or vehicles. Each Rampage icon has two different locations on the map, if the challenge is failed then all the Rampage challenges shift two their second positions, fail it again and they all shift back to their original positions. 100 Hidden Packages 100 Packages hidden in Liberty City, each worth $1,000, and with every 10 packages found, a regenerating power-up will appear at your savehouses. WEAPONS If you need a weapon you must first exit a vehicle and then walk through it to pick it up. Weapons can be collected from fallen foes, gang members and some pedestrians. You can buy weapons from AmmuNation Gun Shop and lastly, there are regenerating weapon power-ups hidden throughout Liberty City. Baseball Bat Louisville slugger, primitive but effective when you aren’t packing heat. Handgun The colt 45 is the most commonly found weapon in Liberty City. This weapon can be used while running! Good for short and long range shooting. Shotgun The shotgun is very damaging at short range but lacks punch at greater distances. You cannot run and fire this weapon at the same time. Uzi A lightweight rapid-fire machinegun, which can be used while running. Good for short and long medium range firing. Molotov Cocktail Similar to a grenade but cheaper to make, this gasoline filled bottle causes an instant fire attack as opposed to the explosion caused from a grenade attack. The longer you hold the shoot button the further the Molotov will be thrown. Grenade Take out cars instantly with one thrown grenade. Does not explode on contact (as with the Molotov’s fire) so be careful of bounce back. The longer you hold the shoot button the further the grenade will be thrown. AK47 A deadly accurate rifle and just as powerful at long distances. You cannot run and shoot with this weapon. M16 This is a very powerful rapid-fire weapon, one that has an optional sight mode. You cannot run with this weapon while firing and the recoil will make aiming a practiced skill. Once you master the M16, victims beware! This gun will take a vehicle out in seconds. Use short firing bursts to conserves ammo when targeting humans. Sniper Rifle Get one shot kills (headshots) using the zooming scope on this precision rifle. You cannot move and shoot at the same time with this weapon –a safety lock on the trigger engages whenever you have the weapon selected while not using the scope. Flame Thrower This weapon uses burning fuel to cook anything in its range. Make sure not to burn yourself in the process. As a safety precaution, you can’t run and fire this weapon. Rocket Launcher The rocket launcher launches rockets… no duh, huh?! This weapon also has a safety lock on the trigger so you won’t have a misfire when not in sight mode. Do not fire at object any where close to you, the concussion will either kill you or take most of your health. VEHICLE MISSIONS Taxi Missions Steal a taxi, and press R3.

WALKTHROUGH PORTLAND: GIVE ME LIBERTY Job Details: Find Safehouse Change clothes Take 8-Ball to Luigi’s Face the Sentinel on the bridge and press the Triangle button to enter. Follow the red icon on the radar in the lower left corner of the screen and stop inside of the blue marker in the safehouse alleyway. After a change of clothes, reenter the Sentinel and follow the icon on the radar to the blue marker just outside of Luigi’s Sex Club 7. LUIGI GOTERELLI Job Details Steal a car Pick up Misty Drive her back to Luigi’s club Steal the nearest car –there are many taxis nearby- and follow the green icon on the radar to Misty who awaits you at the entrance of Sweeney General Hospital. Stop the car besides her; consequentially she’ll enter the vehicle. Take Misty back to Luigi’s to complete the mission. After completing this job for Luigi, the letter ‘L’ will appear on the radar. This represents Luigi and his availability to give you more work. This letter will remain on the radar until you have exhausted Luigi of jobs. To take a job from Luigi you must enter the blue marker in the alley of his club on foot. Drive Misty for Me Job Details Pick up Misty from Hepburn Height Drive her to Joey Leone’s garage in Trenton. Reenter the marker in the alley of the Sex Club 7 to take another job from Luigi Goterelli. Steal a car and follow the icon on the radar to the Tower’s parking lot in Hepburn Heights where Misty will be seen waiting. Press the L3button to honk the vehicle’s horn. Once she’s in the car head towards the new icon on the radar. In Trenton, you’ll find Joey’s Garage, stop in the marker and in a cinematic, Misty will reunite with Joey inside his garage. Joey tells you that when you return he’ll be able to get you more work. For now, we’ll stick with the Luigi jobs and come back to Joey later. As you leave Joey’s you’ll hear the phone outside of the Bitch ‘n’ Dog Food Factory ringing. Pick up the phone and you’ll begin the Marty Chonks missions, but again, for now we’ll stick with Luigi. Pump Action Pimp Job Details Get the gun from AmmuNation gun shop Kill the pimp who’s occupying Luigi’s turf Steal a car and drive to Saint Marks’ AmmuNation represented by the green gun icon on the radar. Inside the shop are two out of stock gun selections but behind the shop in the alley is a free gun ready for the taking. Later you will receive messages when guns will be available for purchase at AmmuNation. Once in the back alley you can perform target practice on the paper targets on the far wall. Shooting guns will attract authority so keep the practice to a minimum. Catch up with the pimp’s car (red radar icon) in your stolen vehicle. There are many ways to complete the objective to kill the pimp –and his driver. You need only to kill the occupants of the vehicle so this opens a world of possibilities. What you’re up against: The pimp and his driver are very evasive They’ll retaliate in their vehicle or out of their vehicle (Diablo Stallion) They will not exit the Stallion until significant harm is done to it Both occupants may get out if their life is in danger in the vehicle (if it is overturned or on verge of blowing up). In this scenario they’ll attack as a team The Pimp is packing a pump action Shotgun, his driver holds an Uzi Suggestions: Trap the car and enter the driver’s side of the Stallion thus throwing the driver out. Take the car away from the pursing driver or any cops and exit the vehicle only to reenter the passenger’s side throwing the pimp out (You’re safe inside the Stallion with the pimp –he cannot hurt you inside the vehicle). Exit the vehicle again and shoot the pimp while continually moving to avoid his shotgun attack. Locate the driver (who may have entered another vehicle in pursuit) and kill him in a similar fashion. While in pursuit of the Stallion you could also ram it and try to turn it over or trap the occupants inside and then destroy the vehicle with them inside. This can be done with various weapons pick-ups found around the map (flamethrower atop the Head Radio Station or Molotov Cocktails found in the tramp’s tunnel near 8-Ball’s garage) or by using your smoking vehicle as a bomb that will eventually blow up and take out their Stallion as well (if its close enough). When this mission ends in your favor, the pistol will be available for purchase at AmmuNation. GTA3 Tester’s Tip Tester: Mike Hong Continually ram the Diablo Stallion until the driver and the pimp bail out. Once out of the car, run them over with your own vehicle! The Fuzz Ball Job Details Take 8 of Luigi’s call girls to the policeman’s ball (4 required to pass the mission) in the time allotted. Scattered throughout Portland are 8 of Luigi’s girls who await you to escort them to the policeman’s ball near the Callahan Bridge. To pass the mission you only need to deliver 4 girls in five minutes, but for each girl delivered to the ball you’ll receive $500 giving you incentive to exceed the minimum amount of deliveries required. Use a car with four doors to pick up three girls at a time. Find a route that does not require you to backtrack. Once you deliver the first three girls you’ll find available police cars in the parking lot of the ball. Make sure not to run over the girls, if you do run over any, you’ll fail the mission. Keep an eye on the clock, remember that you only have 5 minutes to deliver the girls. Job Details Within 5 minutes, steal Lips Forelli’s car from the bistro, rig it with a bomb and return it to the same parking space at the Bistro. Find a fast sports car and Return to Joey’s Garage between six o’clock in the A.M. and nine o’clock P.M. to pick up your first job from Joey Leone. As soon as you take the mission and exit the garage the five-minute clock begins to countdown to end the mission. If everything is not ready to go in 5 minutes, Lips will finish eating and the mission will end unsuccessfully. Follow the icon on the radar to Marco’s Bistro, enter the car with the blue arrow over it and drive it to 8-Ball’s auto-yard. 8-Ball’s garage is indicated on the radar. If Lip’s Idaho is destroyed, the mission will be failed. Lips Forelli can spot the smallest scratch or ding on the Idaho so, be very careful. If you mess it up you’ll have to pay $1000 at Pay ‘n’ Spray within the time allotted so Lips will not notice the damage. If he does notice damage, the mission will be failed. After rigging the bomb onto the car inside of 8-Ball’s garage, drive carefully back to the Bistro (or the Pay ‘n’ Spray if need be) and park it in the exact same space that you stole it from. You must also park perfectly straight or Lips will notice something’s up. When all these parameters are met and time is remaining on the clock, Lips will exit the building, enter his car and become Forelli soufflé. Farewell ‘Chunky’ Lee Chong Job Details Take out Chunky Lee Chong IF you need a gun, head to AmmuNation. If not carry on. Follow the green icon on the radar to the area blocked off to cars in Chinatown. It is here that you’ll find Chunky Lee Chong in his Spank stand in the market area of Chinatown. Target the two Triad gang members on either side of the stand holding baseball bats and the third that will rush wielding a piece. Use the targeting buttons to pick and choose the largest threat first and then target those further away or with clubbing weapons. Quickly Steal a car and chase the fleeing Chong who has already entered a getaway car. Make sure to keep close to the getaway car. If you lag too far behind you risk losing the mission. Do whatever it takes to stop his vehicle and eject him or destroy the vehicle with him still in it. If Chunky finds himself jammed and not able to move his vehicle, he will flee on foot. If this happens, run him over or get out and shoot him. Van Heist Job Details Evict the driver from the Securicar Deliver Securicar to warehouse in Portland Docks Steal a car and follow the red icon on the radar –this direct you to the Securicar. Ram the Securicar until the Blue Damage Meter on the screen is filled. This may take out a few of your vehicles being that the Securicar is very heavily armored. Firearms do not damage the Securicar… it’s bulletproof. When the driver bails out, enter the Securicar and drive it to the location indicated by the icon on the radar. Enter the garage and exit the Securicar and the garage. After making this delivery, El Burro will page you for work, but for organization sake, remain on task with Joey’s jobs. Cipriani’s Chauffeur Job Details Drive Toni to Mamma Cipriani’s restaurant in St Mark’s. Without wrecking the car, drive Toni to Chinatown while following the radar icon. Stop in the blue marker outside Mr. Wongs storefront. When Toni returns to the car screaming, "Triad Ambush," drive him quickly to the blue marker in the Cipriani Restaurant’s driveway in Saint Mark’s. Loose any Wanted level or police pursuers. After the mission, Tony will invite you over to help in his delema. But for now, we will stick with Joey’s work. Also, upon completion of this mission the Uzi will be available for purchase at AmmuNation. Dead Skunk In The Trunk Job Details Take the car packed with a Forelli body in the trunk from Greasy Joe’s diner to the Harwood car crusher. Follow the direction indicated by the red icon on the radar to Greasy Joe’s located in Callahan Point. Take the Manana with the blue arrow over it from the diner’s parking lot. The Forelli brothers, in another car on the lot, will make chase as soon as you enter the Manna. As you avoid the advances of the Forelli brothers, follow the icon the radar to the Harwood crusher. Stop the Manana inside the marker in front of the crusher and exit the vehicle. As the crusher takes the vehicle, be on the lookout for your pursuers. Take the nearby Pony (van) for a getaway or pursuit, engage in a shootout and kill the surviving brothers if they threaten your life before the Manna is crushed. GTA3 Tester’s Tip Tester: Adam Davidson Destroy the Forelli's vehicle (with them inside) before triggering the chase! The Getaway Job Details Take a car to a safehouse in Saint Mark’s Pick up friends of Joey’s and take them to the bank Return the robbers to the safehouse with no Police on your tail Steal a fast four-door vehicle (a Mafia Sentinel works well). Follow the radar to the marker in Saint Mark’s and honk the horn. After the men enter the vehicle, follow the radar to the bank in Chinatown. Stop in the marker to allow the men out and when they return from the robbery, burn rubber! You’ll be granted a Wanted level 3! Enter the Pay ‘n’ Spray to lose this large Wanted level and then follow the radar back to the blue marker at the safehouse where you picked the boys up. Toni Cipriani Taking Out The Laundry Job Details Destroy Mr Wongs’ laundry vans and any Triads who get in the way of your objective Follow the three red icons on the radar to locate Mr Wong’s laundry vans. Toni suggests going to 8-Balls for some grenades, which is not a bad idea. You don’t need the grenades to complete the mission, but it’s not bad to add them to your collection. Again, there is more than one way to destroy a vehicle in GTA3 and there is no limitations put on the Laundry Vans’ destruction. Suggestions: Throwing grenades at the vans to destroy them is actually the most difficult way to destroy them since they are so evasive. Try shooting at them with various arms or try overtaking the vehicles and then throw the drivers out to take control of the vans. From there you have many options as you may have already experienced ways to destroy your own vehicles. Turn them over, run them into walls and bail out, take them to the crusher, park them at the edge of the water in Portland Beach so the water carries them off. You can push them with another vehicle off the docks or off one of the ships, you can rig them with bombs from 8-Ball’s shop. The sky’s the limit! The Pick-up Job Details Collect payment from Wong’s laundry Be on the lookout for a Triad ambush Following the blue radar icon to Mr Wongs laundry will direct you to the loading area in the alley behind the laundry. When you take the briefcase with the blue arrow over it a Triad ambush will commence. The best thing to do is to quickly reenter the vehicle and begin running over the Triads as they come at you from the three different alleyways connected to this loading are. Use the rearview as you back up and over the Triads. Remain in the alleys until all the Triads on foot have been squished! The remaining Triad is located in a large Belly Up truck just outside of the alleyway opposite the laundry. Get out of your vehicle, throw him out of the truck, exit the truck and shoot him. Complete the mission by delivering the money to Toni at the restaurant. Salvatore’s Called a Meeting Job Details Collect the limo and Joey from the garage, then Luigi from his club and return to the restaurant to pick up Toni Drive all boss’s to Salvatore’s mansion Follow the radar icon to Joey’s garage and stop in the marker to pick up the limo and Joey himself. Follow the radar to Luigi’s club, stop in the marker and pick up Luigi by honking the horn on the limo. Follow the radar back Saint Mark’s and Toni’s Restaurant. When you stop and sound the horn in the marker, Toni will enter the limo and another ambush will take place. Triad Laundry vans will appear from almost every direction and slam into the limo until it explodes! To avoid this confrontation in front of the restaurant, park the limo so that the hood of the limo faces away from the restaurant and towards the alleyway across the street. When Tony enters the car, race through the alley and make your way to Salvatore’s following the icon on the radar. If the limo is destroyed along with the bosses, the mission fails. Run over the Triad standing on the right side of the dual van blockade in Salvatore’s driveway. This space between van and trees will allow you access to the long driveway behind the blockade. If you make it into Salvatore’s garage the mission is a success. Salvatore will now offer you work. You must take him up on the offer since the rest of the bosses are busy in the meeting. Salvatore Leone Chaperone Job Details Drive Maria around Portland while she looks for a pusher Take Maria to a party in the Atlantic Quays After the rave raid, take her back to Salvatore Drive the limo from Salvatore’s mansion to the El Train Station in Chinatown to meet the pusher. Stop into the blue marker to let Maria out to talk with the pusher. After the deal has been made and the party has been located drive Maria to Atlantic Quays (follow the radar to the correct building with the blue marker out front). Before you stop in the blue marker, turn the limo around so that the back is facing the distant water. This mission is similar to the last in that the positioning of the limo when you park is vital to your escape. When the cops arrive and Maria is running to the car, take off as soon as her foots in the limo and burn rubber through the crowd to the street and in the direction of Salvatore’s place (follow the radar). A Wanted level 2 is initiated and many police will be in pursuit, quickly drive into Salvatore’s garage to end the mission successfully. Toni Cipriani Triads and Tribulations Job Details Take a few of Toni’s men to the fish market or the fish factory to take out the Triad Warlords and any soldiers that interfere. Allow Toni’s two men dressed in black to follow you into a car and then drive to the designated areas on the radar (green icons). These two men will fight with you if you exit the vehicle. Make sure not to kill them yourself. They are yours until death do you part. The Chinatown Warlord and soldiers are easily taken out by running over them in your vehicle but be aware that there are so many to kill that the cops will probably be alerted. So, to complete the objective you need only take out the Warlord (the one with a blue arrow overhead). Collect weapons from fallen victims and then Steal a Belly-Up truck (there is one parked in the lot or plenty driving around this block). There is another Warlord in Chinatown hanging out in the Chinatown market area (area blocked off to vehicles). Get out of the truck and gun this guy down and then reenter the truck and head to Callahan Point. Follow the Callahan Point green radar icon off of the main road and onto a dirt path that leads to the Turtle Head Fishing warehouse’s front security gate. The gate only opens for the Belly-Up truck. Enter the parking lot and drive around the building while running over the Warlord and his soldiers. Blow Fish Job Details Pick up the Trashmaster from 8-Ball Take the sensitive Trashmaster to the fish factory Park between the gas canisters and set the bomb Follow the red icon on the radar to the tracks besides 8-Ball’s auto yard. Step inside the vehicle and the clock will start ticking. You have 2 minutes and 30 seconds to complete the mission. The slightest bump can set off the bomb inside the Trashmaster so drive with caution but be quick –the clock is ticking. Take the quickest route to Callahan Point. Follow the radar icon through the Turtle Head Fish Factory’s security gate and to the backside of the warehouse into the marker. Press the Circle button before exiting the vehicle or allow the two-minute timer to run out and the bomb will explode taking the propane tanks and the warehouse with it Salvatore Leone Cutting the Grass Job Details Follow Curly Bob to see if he’s rattin’ us out If he’s talking… kill him Salvatore always has a few Mafia Sentinels parked near his garages. Borrow one and head to Luigi’s club in the Red Light District. Park far enough away from the club entrance to see Curly exit and enter a cab but not close enough that he’ll see you. You cannot take the cabbie out and drive Curly yourself! Good try though. The Spookometer will appear onscreen when the cab takes to the streets and the idea is not to spook Curly Bob. Don’t allow this meter to fill up –this would mean that he has been spooked and the mission will end unsuccessfully. However, drive close enough to the cab so you don’t loose sight of Curly. Following Curly to the Portland Docks will trigger a cinematic showing him talk with Catalina and Miguel of the Colombian Cartel. So, Curly Bob is talking… so you must kill him. Locate Curly within the docks using the radar once again and run him over with your car or jump out and kill him Mafia style. Bomb Da Base Act I Job Details Go and see 8-Ball to purchase explosives Destroy the floating SPANK factory Borrow one of Salvatore’s Mafia Sentinels once more and as long as you have $50,000 go see 8-Ball if you don’t have the money, pick up some side jobs (take taxi missions, police vigilante missions or fire truck or ambulance missions. See Marty Chonks, find the Toyz van or play the Patriot Playground or find more hidden packages or attempt some insane jumps and stunts. There are tons of ways to make money in Liberty City –if your dishonest) Head to the back of 8-Balls auto yard and you’ll see the marker near his backdoor. If you have the money he’ll hand you a Sniper Rifle and you’ll be on your way. If you don’t have the money, you must earn some and return when you do. Bomb Da Base Act II 8-Ball turns over a sniper rifle to you and he takes the explosives. 8-Ball will follow you in and out of every vehicle you take as you make your way to Portland Docks. When you stop inside the blue marker near the Portland docks 8-Ball hops out and tells you to find a good vantage point to cover him from as he sprints onto the boat to position the explosives. He’ll move as soon as you fire the first shot. Head towards the Les Cargo ship and take the stairs to the first landing of the warehouse facing the ship. Press the R1 button to target the Cartel while using the Square button to zoom in and the X button to zoom out. You have 30 rounds of ammo, which is more than enough. You can’t afford to miss too many shots or 8-Ball will get tagged! There are a total of 12 Colombian Cartel to pop, 2 on the docks near the ship ramp, which should be taken out first and then 10 on the actual ship. Work your way through the men starting from the left to the right since 8-Ball will approach the ones on the left first, after the first shot is fired. Keep your up and down aiming static and move left to right after you have targeted the first few heads. After all Cartels are dead, 8-Ball plants the bomb and escapes just in time to save himself from the sinking ship. GTA3 Tester Tip Tester: Rich Huie Rich suggest standing at the corner of the large warehouse closest to the boat to pop all the Colombian Cartels who threaten to take 8-Ball’s life. Last Requests Job Details Pick up the brain splattered car and take it to the crusher When you near the sports car behind Luigi’s you receive a page from Maria who warns you that this Salvatore job is a set up and to come see her at the Callahan Point through the tunnel near the Callahan Bridge. Follow the icon on the radar to find Maria. Stop your car on the blue marker at the slip and a cinematic will begin. Maria invited her friend, Asuka, along to assist the two of you. When the cinematic ends you’ll find the party aboard the Reefer, this boat is controlled amazingly similar to driving a car. Pressing the Triangle button will cause you to step away from the controls onboard but not exit the boat (that would be bad since you can’t swim). Command the Reefer to the icon on the radar and to the blue marker near the docks in Staunton Island across the bay. Once you exit the boat, Asuka suggests you find a place to lie low (she’s referring to your Savehouse. Look on the radar for the house icon in Belleville and save your progress here as soon as the mission ends). Staunton Island You have now reached the second map, Staunton Island. Take a few minutes to cruise around the roads and familiarize yourself with the new area. Find the quickest route from Asuka’s condo to the Callahan Bridge before taking the next mission. Now, all the methods of traveling between Portland and Staunton Island are accessible. The Callahan Bridge has been repaired, the tunnel is open and the Subway is running. If you are ready to move on with the missions in Staunton Island then skip past the Portland Extra Missions that follow. If you would like to complete all the missions in Portland before moving on then continue to follow the guide as is. Staunton Island Asuka Kasen Sayonara Salvatore Job Description Salvatore will be leaving Luigi’s Sex Club 7 in three hours. Make sure that he does not make it home alive. What you’re up against: You only have 3 hours to get to into position in Portland before Salvatore leave’s Luigi’s Club in the Red Light District. If you get to close to the club you will be severely attacked by the Mafia. When Salvatore enters his car, two more Mafia Sentinels full of men will aid him. They will try to keep you away from Salvatore’s car. There are so many ways to complete this objective and I suggest you try different methods if one isn’t working so well for you. Suggestions: Use powerful weapons that can be found in certain locations around Liberty City to take out the car. Use the flamethrower from the top of the radio station; use a sniper rifle at a great distance to pop Salvatore before he enters the car from the club. Set a roadblock of Mafia Sentinels in front of Salvatore’s garage door (this is where the mission ends unsuccessfully if he enters safely). Block him from entering the garage and destroy his vehicle with grenades, Molotov Cocktails, the flamethrower or by whatever means you can dream up. But a ramming car chase is just about futile. GTA3 Tester’s Tip Tester: Mel Vega If you’re going to snipe Salvatore before he enters the Mafia Sentinel then gain access to the rooftop of the building across the street from Luigi’s Sex Club to keep away from the Mafia guards and to set up an excellent shot opportunity – Salvatore’s noggin! Paparazzi Purge Job Description Cap the journalist who’s camped out in a boat on the bay. Head to the docks south of Asuka’s condo and press the Triangle button to enter the police boat as you stand facing it. The Circle Button will fire the boat’s guns, but keep in mind that these guns can overheat and will pause to cool down. Chase the reporter’s boat while following close enough to get a clear shot at the boat. Try to get into a position where you can shoot the side of the boat –this is a wider target. The reporter’s speedboat is a little quicker than yours so don’t let him get away. When the damage meter fills, the reporter’s boat will explode thus ending the mission successfully. Under Surveillance Job Description Take out the spying Mafia You are given 6 min and 30 sec to drop 9 Mafia men. If you don’t have the Sniper Rifle, get one from AmmuNation Gun Shop (follow radar). Grab some grenades while you’re there. In Belleville Park and take a position far enough from the small island in the pond that the 2 Mafia men can’t see you or get a true shot at you. Use the sniper rifle and aim for the melons. Drive to Bedford Point and toss a grenade at the Mafia’s van (located on radar). When you take this van out many police will begin pursuit, so quickly reenter your vehicle and head to Torrington. Use the stairs to climb to the helicopter pad on the top of Kenji’s Casino. There are 7 Mafia men on the opposite building. Use the Sniper Rifle to pop the Mafia men on the different balconies on different floors. Start with the top and work your way down. Expect return fire but don’t let that rush your aim, they carry Uzi’s and at this distance they are not too accurate. When the last one is down and there is time left on the clock you will pass the mission. Payday For Ray Job Description Quickly get to the pay phones and wait for further instructions. Meet and pay Asuka’s contact inside the LPD You are given 3 min and 30 sec to answer 4 phones before Ray will meet with you. Use Asuka’s Yakuza to race from phone booth to phone booth –you’re going to need a very fast car. Follow the color cooridinated lines on the map for the quickest route to the booths. Phone Booth #1: Torrington (red route on map) Phone Booth #2: Belleville Park (follow green route on map) When leaving the first phone, head back north along the same route until you intersect the green route on map. Phone Booth #3: Liberty Campus (Follow yellow route on map) From the second phone, exit the road that leads to the bridge to Shoreside Vale and run down the embankment to the lower road that runs past the park. Phone Booth #4: Belleville Park (Follow the blue route on map to the campus) When leaving the campus, follow the yellow route back towards the south and then pick up the blue route where they connect on the map. When you answer the fourth phone the clock will stop the countdown and Ray Machowski will ask you to meet him in the park. Follow the radar to the blue marker in front of the underground bathrooms in Belleville Park. After this mission you can take jobs from Ray by returning to this location… but for now, stick to the guide and finish out Asuka’s job offers. Two-Faced Tanner Job Description Make Two-Faced Tanner bleed! Drive to the Army Surplus area east of the coliseum and work your way around the building and perimeter to enter the courtyard in front of the garages if the gate won’t open for you. Take the Barracks OL and drive it to the blue marker in front of Kenji’s Casino. When Tanner exits the building and enters a getaway car, chase him down and ram him. An automatic Wanted level 5 is given as you approach him, this means all hell brakes loose. You need to take out Tanner before his associates take you out. Tanner repeatedly drives down the same roads. Learn his route and play chicken with your heavy truck against his Eldorado. The Eldorado is no match! TIP: Use the Uzi to drive-by and damage out tanner's car! Kanbu Bust-Out Job Description Steal a police vehicle Get the care rigged with a bomb Break the Kanbu out of custody Drive the Kanbu to the dojo in Bedford Point. Stealing an Occupied Police Vehicle: Drive around a while and you’ll be sure to find a police car in a short amount of time. You can try to get the cop to exit the vehicle first by ramming his car with yours and then shooting or entering the policeman before entering the police car. You can just pull on the passenger side door to kick the cop out and then burn rubber before he pulls you out. No matter what you choose to do, it’ll give you a Wanted level of 1… so get out of the area quickly. Follow the radar to 8-Ball’s garage and drive INTO the garage to rig a bomb to the car –the blue marker just points you in the direction of the garage. Follow the radar to the police station’s blue marker near the wall in the back parking lot. Set the bomb with the Circle button, run from the vehicle to the Police Enforcer truck and return to the blast hole in the wall and pick up the Kanbu. You will have a wanted level of two after driving through the bribe in the alleyway on the way to the streets from the police parking lot. This will make the helicopter go away. Switch vehicles (the Kanbu will follow) and take the car to the Pay ‘n’ Spray and then follow the radar (pink icon) to the dojo and drop off the ex-con into the blue marker in a Bedford Point alley. Grand Theft Auto Job Description Collect the three cars on the list given to you by Kenji Kasen If even so much as dent any of the cars on the list as you deliver them you must Pay ‘n’ Spray them before making the final delivery. To your advantage, the Pay ‘n’ Spray just next door to delivery garage –this will save you time in the case of a dent. The said list is actually not a list but red icons on the radar. You are allowed 6 min to collect the cars with no bonus time added for anything you do. Make sure that you don’t loose time following the wrong radar icon. The red icons are the cars you need to pick up and the pink icon is the delivery garage. The quickest route from the Casino to the three pick up and deliveries is as follows. The Bedford Point Stinger to the Pay ‘n’ Spray or the delivery Garage. Take the van from the nearby alleyway garage. Speed to the Cheetah in Rockford and jump the hospital curb to save time going around to the entrance of the parking lot. Steal a car from the neighboring streets. Speed to the Infernus in Aspatria and deliver it to the garage. When all three have been delivered in good condition the mission will end successfully. Deal Steal Job Description Steal Yardie Lobo Pick up Kenji’s man Meet with the Colombians Leave no one alive Get briefcase Destroy Colombian Cruisers Return the Briefcase to the Casino Since the Colombian Cartel expects a Yardie Posse to arrive at the meeting, drive to Newport and Steal a Yardie Lobo vehicle. Follow the green icon on the radar to Aspatria and pick up Kanji’s man. Follow the pink icon on the radar to Sweeny Hospital in Rockford, enter the blue marker and honk the horn L3 button. Run over or exit and shoot the Colombians as they exit their cruisers. Take the briefcase (red icon on radar) near their cruiser and then head to the parking lot and destroy the remaining two cruisers using any method you can think of. Shoot them with guns, use grenades, Molotov’s etc. Enter a vehicle and take the briefcase back to Kenji. Drive to the back Casino parking lot (pink icon on radar) and into the blue marker to complete the mission. Shima Job Description Pick up briefcases full of money to be entered into the Kenji’s Casino accounts Find gang responsible for the last briefcase theft Return money to Kenji Follow the icons on the radar to the briefcase locations. Pick up the one on the Torrington sidewalk first and then the one in Bedford Point. This one is guarded by a Diablo, but simply running into him will take him out and allow you to exit the car to pick up the briefcase. Drive to the missing briefcase in Belleville Park in front of Uncle BJ’s. A cinematic will begin as you arrive depicting Uncle BJ screaming about thugs stealing his payment… the Diablo’s! Follow the blue icon on the radar to Portland (Hepburn Heights to be exact). There you’ll discover a gang of Diablos in the parking lot where you talk to El Burro on the phone. You should use a heavy (for armor purposes) vehicle and run over them or use the flamethrower up close and personal or a sniper rifle or grenades at a distance. The choices to take them off the planet are again limitless. After retrieving the briefcase, take it to the back parking lot behind the Casino in Staunton Island. Smack Down Job Description Kenji wants you to run the Yardie Spank dealers into the ground Your mission is to end the lives of 8 Yardie dealers in the Staunton area. You will see a Yardie death counter below your on-screen Wanted level. The dealers are indicated on the radar as green icons. You do not have to perform these executions in any particular order and all of the dealers can easily be run over while remaining in your car. There are 3 Yardie dealers in Bedford Point, 2 around and 1 actually in Belleville Park, and 2 in the Aspatria area. When you complete this mission for Kenji, he’ll not be offering anymore work, so visit Ray in the park bathrooms. Silence The Sneak Job Description Torch the sneak's apartment Hunt down the sneak and kill him Locate the apartment in question using the radar. Throw a grenade, Molotov or shoot a rocket into the window that was shown in the quick cinematic. The sneak will be driven out of the garage below the window and take off through the closest alley and out into the street. If McAffey reaches the street the mission will become harder to complete and a Wanted level 2 will be sounded. Suggestions: Block the alleyway that McAffey’s driver cuts through every time this mission is played. Use the car you drove up in and any other car in the area garages or street. Block the alleyway so well that the car cannot possibly escape the area then throw a grenade or Molotov at the car. GTA3 Tester’s Tip Tester: Haklin Ng Park a car just outside the garage door to impede the sneak’s escape, and then quickly toss a grenade as the sneaks tries to get away. Phil Cassidy’s Army Surplus Job Description Protect Phil from the Colombian Cartel attack Drive to Phil’s Army Surplus in Rockford following the pink icon on the radar. The security gate will open for you now. Approach Phil in the back of the lot and a cinematic will ensue. When the talk ends, head to the crates that sit against the perimeter wall behind you and beside the garage. Jump from crate to crate to reach the top of the wall. Walk the wall to the storage containers. Jump to the container with the Rocket Launcher hovering above it. Select the Rocket and take aim with the R1 button to the entrance of the compound. Take out the Colombian Vehicles as they pull up outside the security gate. If any Cartel escape the vehicles, pick them off at a distance with the Rockets. Use a more conventional weapon if they appear closer or come around the backside of the nearby garage. When all is still, go see how Phil is and the mission will end successfully if he remains alive. Return to Phil’s Army Surplus to buy M16, shotgun and rocket launcher. The tank is not available unless you steal one from an army man in a wanted level 6 Evidence Dash Job Description The Prosecution has damaging pictures of Donald Love; Ray wants the evidence destroyed. Ram the pickup to get a piece of evidence to fall out and then collect it Once the evidence has been collected, destroy the car with the five pieces of evidence in it This opens Donald Loves Contact Point Obtain a fast car and follow the red icon on the radar to the Bobcat truck carrying the evidence. When you spot the Bobcat with the blue arrow over it to make it drop the evidence one at a time. Run over the packages to pick them up –you do not need to exit the vehicle. There is no time limit and you are allowed to switch vehicles if yours receives too much damage to drive. When you’ve collected all the evidence you can destroy the car in any fashion that you choose. Gone Fishing Job Description Ray's partner is going to turn State's Evidence. He goes night fishing on the Lighthouse Rock Steal a police boat (boat with cannons) Ray’s partner’s boat is armed with mines Kill Ray’s Partner Follow the red icon on the radar to Asuka’s condo in Newport and walk south to the docks to find the Police Boat. Press the Triangle Button to enter as you face it. Follow the icon on the radar around Portland and to the lighthouse on Portland Rock. This mission is played out the same as Paparazzi Purge, shoot the boat with the onboard cannons but only this time you must avoid the bombs dropped in the wake of Ray’s partner’s boat. Once the damage meter is filled the boat explodes and the mission is won. Plaster Blaster Job Description The witness from Ray mission 1 has managed to survive. He will be transferred from hospital to the courthouse in an ambulance Damage the ambulance enough so that the body cast falls out. Because of the cast only explosions and collisions will damage him Chase him and kill him The damage meter on screen indicates the damage that needs to be dealt to the witness in an ambulance in full a body cast. The red icon on the radar tracks the ambulance’s movements. If the ambulance arrives at the hospital you’ll miss your opportunity to stop the witness and the mission will end in failure. Police protect the witness and when you attack a wanted level 2 will be activated when the body is ejected the wanted level is raised to 3 so keep moving! Hit the ambulance rather hard and the witness will pop out onto the street through the back doors. The only way to destroy the fire-bullet-proof cast is to drive over it repetitively (or less often with a heavy vehicle) or to explode things above it. Park a smoking car over the cast and explode the vehicle. TIP: Drop a grenade right on top of the body cast and clear out! Uzi Money Job Description In Shoreside Vale’s Wichita Gardens you’ll hear a phone ringing from a booth on the sidewalk. Answer it to take the D-Ice jobs D-Ice wants you to kill some Purple Nines. Kill 20 in 2 mins 30 secs. Drive around the neighboring streets and shoot the Nines dressed in purple coats drive-by style with the Uzi. You have to be in the car and you cannot run over them to make the kill count –it has to be a drive-by shooting! Drive quickly to find them and then slow down once you find a Nine and use the forward and reverse vehicle controls to aim while pressing L2 or R2 to aim from side to side. Once you make a kill, quickly move on to the next. The Nines will fire back so watch out for groups of Nines. They could quickly eliminate your vehicle. You can switch vehicles and continue the mission. After knocking off 20 Nines you’ll complete the mission. Toyminator Job Description Destroy three Securicars. The Securicars are heavily armored but have weaker armor on the underside Use RC cars that are loaded with explosives to take them out Mission will fail if all 4 buggies are used and all 3 of the Securicars are not destroyed. The buggies will explode if they hit or vehicles tires or if the player tries to take them too far away (Out of the level that they were created in). Follow the red icon on the radar to the apartments in Wichita Gardens. Find and enter the Toyz van parked near some garages. This mission is very similar to the other RC Toyz challenges. The difference is you now have a limited number of RC cars. You have 4 RC cars to use to destroy 3 Securicars; you can mess up once and still complete the mission. The RC cars control as all others have in the past –just like any other vehicle. Use the circle button to detonate or run into the Securicars’ tires. Follow the icons on the radar to track down the Securicars. Rigged to Blow Job Description D-Ice’s favorite car has been rigged with explosives Get the car and take it to a garage in St Marks to get it disarmed before the fuse runs out. If the car takes too much damage it can explode. The car damage can be reset if the car is taken to the repair shop. Return vehicle back to D-Ice undamaged You are given 6 minutes to unarm the bomb in D-Ice’s car. Follow the red icon on the radar to the Infernus in a Wichita Gardens parking lot. The detonation gage on screen will show how close the bomb comes to going off when you hit bumps and take damage. Follow the red icon on the radar to the garage in Saint Marks. The best route to take is through the tunnel located on the lower street in Wichita Gardens very close to where you found the vehicle. Switch to first person view, once in the tunnel, to avoid traffic and medians that will cause you damage. To get to Harwood in Portland, don’t turn at any of the intersections within the tunnel. Take a left into Saint Mark’s and follow the icon to the bomb-dismantling garage. Carefully return the car to the same parking lot in Wichita Gardens after the bomb is dismantled. If you ding the car, take it to the Pay ‘n’ Spray in Shoreside Vale and then return the car to D-Ice. Once you deliver the car in good condition the mission will end. Feel free to take his car afterward to answer the phone and take the next job. Bullion Run Job Description There is bullion scattered on the roads in Pike Creek Get a vehicle and head to Pike Creek, the timer starts once the player is in a vehicle Collect 30 pieces of bullion before the timer runs out (6 mins) The more bullion picked up the heavier the vehicle will get (making it harder to drive) Balance, picking up more bullion or dropping off the bullion you’ve collected and losing time Follow the pink icon on the radar to Pike Creek and drive through the pick-ups on the surrounding streets (the pink icon on the radar is the garage where you unload bullion). You’ll quickly notice that the more you pick up the heavier and harder to control your vehicle becomes. Bullion is not counted until you deliver it to the garage. The key to this mission is to have a car that is made for carrying heavy loads such as the Colombian Cruisers, Vans, trucks etc. Once you have the right vehicle you can make one large delivery and then one small one and be done with it. Rumble Job Description The Nines have challenged the Jacks to a fight you are only allowed to use a baseball bat Pick up D-Ice’s Bro and then head to the fight and kill 9 Nines without getting iced yourself If you use any other weapon other than the bat you’ll fail the mission Not too much to this mission, follow the radar to D-Ices brother and pick him up as he fills you in on the fight rules. Head to the picnic down the dirt road in Wichita Gardens. Get out of the car and his brother will follow and start beating on the Nines with the bat. Keep hitting them when they’re down unless there is a more immediate danger and after all 9 of the Nines are down for good the mission ends successfully. Shoreside Vale Donald Love Grand Theft Aero Job Description When you arrive at the airport a Pan-Lantic Construction van speeds away.Close in on the hangar that holds the Cessna and some Colombians who are protecting it will attack. After the player has killed them, he will go into the hangar to find out that the plates are not there. The player must head over to the construction site. The player must fight his way into the construction site and make his way to the lift. All routes to Shoreline Vale are now open to you. Take the bridge to Shoreside Vale and follow the radar to the hangars behind the airport dome (smash through the security arm). The red icon will lead you to a green hangar. Pull around to the front of the open hangar and you’ll see a van pull away. Park a fair distance from the open hangar doors and use a sniper rifle to clear out the riff-raff. Aim for explosive barrels to speed up the job. Enter the Dodo in the hangar and you’ll discover that the package is gone. Outside the hangar, inspect the black Pan-Lantic van. Head back to Staunton Island following the pink icon to the construction site in Fort Staunton. Enter the construction site through the open gate on the east side. Use the upper level of the tower closest to the blue walled structure as a vantage point to snipe the Colombians within the blue walled area (after clearing the tower of the inhabitant –of course). After sniping all you can snipe, infiltrate the blue walled structure very carefully. Head through the main entrance after sniping the ones in view and then take out the remaining Colombian Cartel as you make your way to the elevator. The cinematic helps put the pieces of the plot together. Once the cinematic ends you’ll see a Yakuza Stinger and some guards near the construction site. Don’t fear them, they’re on your side; take the car and head to Donald Love’s. Follow the pink icon to the underground garage to end the mission. Escort Service Job Description Escort the OOG and the package retrieved in Grand Theft Aero to a warehouse in Shoreside Vale. The Cartel will attack the vehicle and if it’s destroyed the mission is failed Use a Flatbed truck or the Barracks OL to run beside the Securicar. Drive near the underground garage in the Love Media building and you’ll see Love’s associate in a Securicar, pulling away to start the trip. What you’re up against: The Damage meter under your Wanted level is the Securicar’s health. Do not allow this level to increase if you can help it. The Securicar is slow and obeys traffic laws. Colombian Cartel Cruisers and pedestrian Cartel will continuously attack the Securicar along its route. Suggestions: Follow closely behind the Securicar and use the rearview mirror (L2 + R2) to spot possible ambushes. Use drive-by shooting when the Cartel are right next to you Cut them off pursuers into oncoming traffic, buildings and any obstructions using the review mirror as an aid. Spin out vehicles as they pass in front of you. Avoid exploding vehicles even if it means stopping and allowing the Securicar to take damage. The Securicar is much more durable than any vehicle you can find to escort it. Be careful not to hit any police cars. You don’t need any more enemies now. Your destination is the AMco structure in Shoreside Vale; once this is reached the mission ends successfully. GTA3 Tester’s Tip Tester: Adam Davidson Drive ahead of the Securicar and run over the Colombians that are on foot and positioned on the side of the road. Use the drive-by Uzi to take out the Colombians cruisers. Decoy Job Description The warehouse with the OOG and the package has been surrounded by S.W.A.T. teams Break out in the Securicar and keep the police busy for 3 minutes so the OOG can escape All this and a wanted level of six Return to Pike Creek in Shoreside Vale to the AMco building. Enter the Securicar and the 3 minute plight will begin. What you’re up against: The largest amount of police cars, Enforcers and helicopters you’ve seen thus far in the game! Relentless attacks upon the Securicar A clock that seems to never stop! If you don’t survive the three minutes or if you exit the vehicle for more than 14 seconds you will fail the mission Suggestions: Use the ramp in the parking lot to go over the wall. This will keep you from heading out the exit that the cops expect you to use. Massive damage occurs through the main exit. Avoid driving uphill. This will slow you down and allow the authorities to catch up and damage the vehicle. Run around on the airport runways. Drive into the tunnels that run under the bay to Staunton Island and Portland. This keeps the helicopters out of the picture. It also keeps additional backup far out of reach. My favorite course of action to escape from the police is to head across the bridge to Staunton Island! Love’s Disappearance The next time you return to Donald Love’s you’ll realize that he’s vanished. To find clues on his disappearance, go to the construction site to see Asuka. Bait Job Description Miguel has revealed that Catalina has flown in three death squads to hunt you down Asuka suggests that you lure them into a kill zone manned by her own hitmen. You may help kill a Death Squad once it has bailed out in the kill zone. Steal a fast car and head to Shoreside Vale’s Pike Creek. There are four death squads visible on the radar (pink icons), the yellow icon on the radar represents the kill zone where you will lead the squads to be ambushed by Asuka’s men. If you try to be a vigilante and take them out yourself anywhere but the kill zone you will fail the mission –her men must help. However, there is a chance that a few men may escape the kill zone on foot, if this happens you are able to hunt them down and take ‘em out yourself. These escapees will appear as green icons on the radar. If you get too far ahead of the persuers you risk the chance of losing them and they will return to their original position eventually. There are squads at Cochrane Dam at the end of the upper dam road. There’s a squad near the subway at the airport and another in a driveway in the nice neighborhood of Cedar Grove. One at a time, lure them to the parking lot in Pike Creek, swing the car around so that the side of your car faces the center area where the death squad will stop and fire at them drive-by style. When the squad is dead, take their weapons and head out for another victim. Espresso-2-Go Job Description Miguel reveals that the Cartel is selling Spank through an Expresso franchise on Liberty’s streets The Player must wreck 9 stalls throughout Liberty Timer will start once first stall is destroyed (8 mins to complete the mission) The trick to beating this mission is having a swift yet heavy vehicle to race to and knock down the Spank Stands. The Colombian Cruiser is the best vehicle to use but others will do if you find yourself losing your vehicle to damage. Vans and other large vehicles will work but they just won’t match the handling and speed of the Colombian Cruiser. The second most important thing to beating this mission is the order in which you hit the stands. There is no particular order that you HAVE to hit them in but there is an order that makes it easier to hit them all in the time allotted. Check out the maps provided to discover the suggested order. Remember, when you hit the first stand, the timer begins. Start with the Stand in front of the Shoreside Vale Hostpital and then race to the airport. Fly up the stairs and smack into the Stand near the subway entrance at the airport. Take the bridge to Staunton Island. Head east past Belleville Park and into Newport near the white multilevel carpark. Smash the stand in the commons area and head south down the angled street. Smash the Credit Union Bank’s Stand in the recessed stair area near the star statue. Head south to the waterfront street then north to reach the fifth stand. Smash the stand next to a building in Bedford Point. After taking it down, head north to the church. The sixth stand sits in front of the church in Bedford Point. Smash it and head north towards the park. The 7th stand is in the actual park of Belleville Park. Smash the stand on the hill and head east to the Callahan Bridge to enter Portland. In Portland keep to the southeast roads until you reach the area across the street from the Portland Docks in Portland Harbour. Smash it and head north. Past Salvatore’s house in Saint Marks you’ll find the last stand just around the corner of an apartment building in a small triangular parking lot. Smash it to complete the mission. S.A.M. Job Description Miguel reveals that every month a fresh shipment of Spank is flown into the freight terminal at Francis international Get a boat out to a runway light pontoon Shoot down the aircraft Collect the packages from the debris You have 3 min and 30 sec to commandeer a fast boat and make it to the light pontoon floating near the Francis International runways. If you miss the plane’s approach to the runway you will fail the mission. You have only one shot at this. Following the red radar icon to the boat docks on the western coast of Staunton you’ll find the boat you need to complete the objectives. Near the boat hovers a rocket launcher with very little ammo, take it and face the boat while hitting the Triangle button. Now speed towards the light pontoon (blue icon on radar) and when you reach the pontoon, press the Triangle button to release the boat controls and head out from under the cockpit, select the rocket launcher, look to the east and locate the Cessna. Take careful aim and shoot the plane as it nears the runway. When the debris scatters in the water or on the runway itself, collect the floaters with the boat and then dock it if you have to collect any packages that made it to land. Keep in mind that after destroying the plane, a wanted level of 4 will be sounded. Use whatever extra rockets you have to take out the police helicopter to buy time to pick up more packages without being shot at. The helicopters are all that’ll reach you in this remote area of Shoreside Vale. After collecting all 8 packages you must bring the packages back to the construction yard to complete the mission. Ransom When you return to the construction site in Staunton Island you’ll find Asuka dead and Miguel’s body has a note on it lifeless body. Catalina has Maria and if you want her back you must bring her $500,000 Marked Man Job Description The CIA is making money from Cartel deals and is concerned that the Yakuza are hindering the operation. They’ve discovered that Ray is helping them and they’ve decided to ‘rub him out’. Ray is running scared and needs a ride to the airport before his flight leaves. Avoid the C.I.A on the way. Ray will give you a large reward for his successful escape. Return to the park bathrooms in Belleville Park to talk with Ray Machowski in the underground restroom. Make sure to steal a fast car before entering the blue marker to accept the mission. You have 3 min to drive Ray to the airport in Shoreside Vale before his plane departs. The most natural route is cut off by the CIA -the bridge is barricaded. The only route that makes sense for safety and speed sake is the tunnel that runs under the bay to Shoreside Vale. So, from the park, head north to Rockford and enter the tunnel to Shoreside Vale. Use first person view once inside to avoid colliding with other vehicles. Follow the overhead signs to the airport (2 left turns). Follow the pink icon to the front of the airport (passanger drop-off area) and stop in the blue marker. The mission is not over but the clock has stopped. Ray enters the airport after telling you to head to the lock-up in Staunton Island. Follow the pink icon on the radar to Newport and drive up to the garage. Inside the lockup are a bulletproof Patriot, rocket launcher, sniper rifle, flame- thrower and $20,000! These items only appear once. Take the Patriot to your Savehouse and save your progress. The Exchange Job Description Raise $500,000 for Catalina to replace the drugs that the player stole in Asuka’s mission "S.A.M" or Maria will die When you arrive at the Colombian Mansion they will frisk you and strip you of weapons Catalina orders you to be killed then leaves, taking Maria with her as hostage Escape the mansion while collecting as much firepower as you can Follow the helicopter to find Catalina Fight his way through goons toward Catalina at the dam Catalina takes off in a ‘copter and shoots missiles at you Fight your way to a weapon cache and use a rocket launcher or an M16 to shoot down Catalina Suggestions and Preparation: Have full health and full armor before taking this mission Pull up to the mansion with the bullet-proof patriot pointing north Finding cool weapons is pointless. You will be stripped of weapons when you begin the mission Follow the ‘C’ icon on the radar to Cedar Grove to the Colombian mansion. As long as you have $500,000 enter the blue marker at the gates of the swank mansion. Two guards will take the briefcase and strip search you for any weapons. At this point you will be weaponless. After handing over the money Catalina orders you dead. In the cinematic, you knock the guard to the ground… from here the mission begins with this guard on the ground and the first weapon available at his side. On the clock there is seven minutes. This is the time you have to take out the helicopter at the dam and not just the time you have to escape the mansion so move quickly. Colombian Compound Escape: Keep moving! Pick up handgun from first guard and charge the two at the gate Take the gate guards’ weapons and shoot the remaining grounds guard and take his Uzi Use the Uzi on the two balcony guards Find armor in the garage and leave the compound through the gate The helicopter cinematic will begin Race to the Dam: Don’t follow the helicopter (red icon on radar) down the road it flies over. Instead, take the quicker route to the dam along the north most road that bends around the north side of the mansion Find the M16 on the porch of the pink house two houses down from the back of the mansion (be quick about it) There’s a rocket launcher on the west end of the roof on the last house but you may run out of time if you can’t get it quickly (jump on the mound on the east side of the house and walk around the rooftop to the launcher). The Dam Battle: Exit your vehicle at the 1st dam roadblock and shoot both guards and take their AK47’s. Take a cruiser if you don’t have the bullet proof patriot Collect the Sniper Rifle near the mountain before the second roadblock Shoot the Cruisers that make up the second roadblock to take out the two guards who stand near them. Use the M16 that you picked up from the second roadblock and use the sight to pick off the guard on the crates ahead Dash behind these crates and take out the guard near the explosive barrels to the north Take the weapon atop the crates you hide behind Take out the guard on the first tower using the sniper rifle of the M16 Remain around the same crate area and take out the guard to the west near the explosive barrels as he rushes you (shoot the barrels) Use the first tower for a higher view for snipe shooting or using the M16 sights Snipe shoot or use the M16 to shoot the guard on the second tower and the one on the crates below. Shoot the guard on the ground near the stairs beyond the second tower. As you approach the second tower, a truck will race towards you. Run up the stairs of the second tower and use this vantage point to take out as many of the other guards to the west as you can. Take the M16 power-up from the tower Take cover behind objects, crates, corners when the missiles begin to fly from Catalina’s helicopter Take out the guard with the flamethrower between the crates below the helipad and shoot the guy above him on the helipad deck Climb the stairs and carefully shoot around Maria and clear the 3 guards on the rooftop Take the rocket launcher from the end of the helipad deck and take aim –you only have two rockets- at Catalina’s helicopter in flight Shoot down the helicopter and trigger the ending cinematic ALTERNATIVE MISSIONS Portland El Burro El Burro is the Diablo gang’s leader. Anytime after receiving El Burro’s page you can head to Hepburn Heights while following the blue icon on the radar to the Tower’s parking lot. There in the lot is a ringing phone… pick it up and take a job from El Burro. Turismo Job Details Steal a fast car and race the Diablo gang to the finish Steal a Diablo Stallion (not necessary but a good idea) from any street around the block where you answered the call from El Burro. Drive the Diablo Car to the icon on the radar near the Callahan Bridge. Stop on the blue marker next to the waiting Diablo Cars and wait for the 3-second countdown. Wait a second after the race begins to avoid the mayhem that waits ahead. The other Diablo Stallions will slam into each other as they race down the street. You should avoid this barbarism and pass them as they try to recover. While in the lead, watch the radar closely to find the nearest pink icon, this will lead you to the next checkpoint marker. The lengthy course is comprised of 18 checkpoints including the one at the finish line just beyond the street where you started the race. You need to come in first to win the race. If you mess up your car too badly, quickly grab another while the race continues –this is legal in Diablo racing. Try the Mafia Sentinel; this is a good match for Diablo Stallion. I Scream, You Scream Job Details Retrieve El Burro’s bomb in Harwood Carjack the ice-cream truck en route Lure the Forelli gang to their doom Follow the blue radar icon a block away from the phone to a location in Harwood where you’ll see a blue arrow over a briefcase tucked in a corner of a small parking lot. Pick up the briefcase that contains the bomb. Follow the red icon on the radar to catch up to the "Mr Whoopee" ice-cream truck. Stop in front of the truck with your car and carjack the ice-cream truck. Follow the icon on the radar into the warehouse parking lot in Atlantic Quays (the driveway is lined with orange construction cones). Park the van in the Blue marker (use L3 to play the Mr. Whoopee jingle that will lure the Forelli’s) and exit the truck. When the Forelli’s arrive, make sure you are a fair distance away from the truck and press the Circle button to activate the bomb and blow the Forelli’s to kingdom come. Make sure to hop on over there quick enough to take their weapons they left behind. Trial By Fire Job Details Find the flame-thrower and teach the Triad vandals to fear El Burro’s wrath. Follow the radar gun icon to a Chinatown alley where you’ll find a flame-thrower. You now have a weapon with unlimited ammo. This mission is somewhat similar to that of a Rampage Challenge. Head out to the street with flame-thrower in hand and fry 30 Triads in the 3 minutes allotted. For the most Triad congestion, try heading to the nearby basketball court. Collect as many weapons from the fallen victims when the mission is complete. The biggest challenge in this mission is to not burn yourself in the process. You cannot move around too much, as fire is flying at least not towards flames that are still burning. Also, burning passersby’s can also ignite yours truly. Big ‘N’ Veiny Job Details Take El Burro’s van and collect the trail of magazines Deliver the magazines to the XXX Magazine Store Find El Burro’s Rumpo van parked near the parking lot you answered El Burro’s call in. As you enter the vehicle the challenge begins with 20 seconds on the clock to finish the course. Sound impossible?! Well, with each magazine driven through to collect you are awarded with an additional second. This means you must drive this wobbly van like it was a sports car. This will take a few runs to learn the course and you must stay in line with the magazines to avoid losing valuable seconds. Keep in mind that it is not necessary to pick up all of the magazines to complete the mission, however, doing without a few will push you further away from the time needed to finish the course. The trail ends in the Portland Docks. When you reach the end of the trail you’ll see El Burro’s stolen Rumpo (blue arrow above it) and the thug who stole it is standing at the back of the van. Simply ram the back of van while he stands between the two vehicles to take him out. DO NOT ENTER HIS VAN, his van is empty. You now have all the mags. Follow the pink radar icon to the Red Light District and deliver the magazines to the back of XXX Magazine Store. Stop on the blue marker to end the mission. Marty Chonks Remember when you heard the phone ringing every time you visited Joey’s Garage in Trenton? Well, go answer that phone on the next block from the garage and you will be on the other end of a conversation with Marty Chonks, the owner of the Dog Food Factory.

After Marty knocks off his wife you are instructed to dump the car your driving into the sea. There are many places this can be done and you may have already done this with a different vehicle. If not, then head to Portland Beach between the apartments near Salvatore’s pad and the shipyard. Drive the car onto the beach and put the front tires in the water. Get out of the car and watch the car get swept out with the waves and begin to sink. That’s it! Mission complete. Her Lover Job Details Take Marty’s car to pick Carlos Bring him back to the factory You’ll find a Stallion in Marty’s usual vehicle hiding place. Follow the radar (green icon) to Chinatown and stop to pick up the guy with the blue arrow over his head standing outside the apartments. Take Marty’s late wife’s boyfriend back to the factory. Once there you will finally get a glimpse of Marty, but hold on to that memory. When the boyfriend leaves the vehicle he will have words with Marty and then blast ‘em with a shotgun! There is nothing you can do to stop this event from happening, so just collect your dough and pretend none of this ever happened. This obviously ends the Marty Chonks missions.

Find a fast car, there are plenty throughout Staunton Island –nice sports cars. If you are impatient then just grab something decent and close by. Once you have your vehicle, enter the marker in front of the coliseum to start the race. Jump the gun –King Courtney likes that! Since the other competitors have no idea where each checkpoint will appear, they’ll be as lost as you so it’s a pretty fare game. Just keep an eye on the radar to beat them to the prize. Once you’ve collected more checkpoints then any other you win. Uzi Rider Job Description Perform a drive-by or run over 5 Diablo’s You must stay in the car When the Yardies pull up in the Perennial they will hand you an Uzi and give you control of the vehicle.

Cross the Callahan Bridge once more and return the Yardies to the marker in Newport indicated on the radar. Gangcar Round-up Job Description The Yardies like cars, especially hard-to-get cars. And they like them fast! Steal and deliver a Mafia Sentinel, a Yakuza Stinger car and a Diablo Stallion In no particular order, nab a Mafia Sentinel from Salvatore’s place in Portland, a Yakuza Stinger from Staunton Island and a Diablo Stallion from Hepburn Heights (Portland).

Kingdom Come Job Description The Colombians have found out that their new allies (Yardies) have been employing their enemy (you). So they have set up a trap for you.

So, make sure to have a very fast sports car waiting by the phone before you answer it to take this mission. After a few trial runs you will quickly (and with use of the map) find the quickest route with the least amount of turns and opposing traffic. Once inside the car in the parking lot a suicide bomber rushes you. There are many ways to complete this objective, one way is to get out of the vehicle and use run around shooting the bombers and then the vans, then more bombers, then the remaining vans etc… You could also take the car and park it at the end of one of the three alleys and force the closest bombers to attack by funneling through the long and narrow alleyway. There are different vantage points around the parking lot from other entrances and stairways that will allow you to even look down onto the parking lot and take out the vans and finally the suicide bombers! Shooting the bombers when they are near the vans will cause them to take the van out with them as they explode. Using weapons with better range works better than those that don’t. Bad weapons to use are the shotgun, flamethrower, grenades and molotovs. The rocket launcher is difficult to use as well, since you have to use the site which will allow someone to sneak up behind you and that’s not mentioning the blast that will occur if the bomber is too close to you. Exit the car while in the lot and Use the Uzi while continually moving to avoid the suicide bombers’ advances.

You’ll quickly notice that the more you pick up the heavier and harder to control your vehicle becomes. Bullion is not counted until you deliver it to the garage.
