       [NOTE: the [gnat] replaces the "@" symbol in the e-mail address. It is 
              to thwart spambots looking for email addresses to send spam to. 
              Simply replace [gnat] with "@" when responding. I chose [gnat] 
              because it rhymes with "at" and is easy to remember. Same goes 
              for "." - [snot].]

>>General Notices
  ***************
  NOTICE: This guide may only be distributed and/or posted in its original 
          format (and, most importantly, UNALTERED in any way).

  If you wish to post or use excerpts from this guide, PLEASE ask for my
  permission before doing so (especially if you work for a magazine or
  website). A lot of time and effort was spent putting this thing together 
  and that should be taken into consideration.

  And remember.....

     "Respect is everything."

Besides, contacting me will also give me an opportunity to hook up and talk 
shop with fellow GTA3 "thuggers".....

I truly want to thank those who have written to me about this guide even if
you haven't received a response. I tend to read my e-mail late at night and
sometimes I'm too tired to respond right away. Mainly because I'm either a)
updating my other GTA (plus Riddick) related documents, b) hacking up a
console or doing more RGB experiments, or c) I've had a rough night at work
(I work retail you know....).

I've received a lot of nice e-mail about this guide from people around the
world saying how good the guide is and offering suggestions (many of which
made it into the previous revisions). I intend to continue updating and
polishing this document for as long as possible.

This guide uses a Quick Search Feature which takes advantage of the Find
feature used by many web browsers. This feature will allow you to go to any
chapter or section in this guide quickly.

On the left side of many of the chapters, as well as the right side of each
of the major section headers, in the Table of Contents is a four character
code. To access any of those chapters or sections do CTRL-F (PC) or Clover-F
(Mac) to activate the Find feature in the web browser. Then enter the code in
BRACKETS (or at least the left bracket) like this:

[xxxx] or [xxxx

You will notice that the chapters for the Main Story Missions do not have a
four character code. They are accessed a little differently. To access any of
the Main Story Mission chapters you activate the Find feature and enter the >
character followed by the chapter number like this:

>KR6 or >ZD12

This feature also works backwards. You will notice that the Table of Contents
has it's own four character code. Should you want to quickly go back to the
top of this document input the four letter code for the Table and you will
instantly be back at the top of the guide.

My name is Robert Allen Rusk and I am a hardcore gamer with about 30+ years
of gaming experience. I am an ex-gametester (Broderbund Software, LucasArts
Games, Point Of View Computing) and an ex-arcade attendant (Namco
Cyberstation - Pier 39, San Francisco, CA).

I also own multiple systems such as the Sega Dreamcast, Super Nintendo,
Nintendo 64, Atari Jaguar, PlayStation 1 and 2, Xbox, and Xbox 360.

I currently work at JCPenneys at one of the malls here in San Antonio, TX. 
Retail isn't the best job in the world but JCPenneys is a very stable company
unlike some of the other places I have worked for in the past like internet
service providers or web programming companies.

I started writing guides in 2003 because I felt it was something I could do
utilizing my writing skills gained in college and gametesting along with my
passion for vidgames. Over time I have honed my overall writing and
organization skills plus my creative thinking skills. I have extended the
play value of the games I have written guides and FAQs for many times over
plus I have received many letters from all over the world.

I am also what one may call an RGB enthusiast. I hack my game consoles to try
to get the best possible video from them and that usually involves tapping
into the RGB Analog video signals and using them on the right monitors to
achieve my desires. To this end I became a member of the GamesX.com mod forum
and I post regularly on their "RGB + Video Discussions" forum area.

In addition, I am a member of the X-Otic Computer Systems of San Antonio
(www.xcssa.org), a group who specializes in Linux, Mac, and other systems.

I am also a regular forum poster at GameFAQs, an occasional poster at

This guide was constructed using BBEdit Lite 6.1 and a Power Mac Workgroup
Server 8550/200 (with a G3 card running at 330 MHz). It is now being
maintained using TextWrangler 2.1.2 on a 1.5Ghz Single Core Intel Mac Mini. I
view my work in Safari to help in seeing how it would look on the web and
correct format errors.

I also play GTA3 on my NEC MultiSync 3D RGB monitor using a homebrew RGB
box that contains a EL1883 (MacroVision compatible) sync separation chip to
acquire video sync, for RGB use, from Composite Video.

When I do my writing and guide revisions I run my Mac (on a Compaq monitor)
alongside the Xbox or PS2 (on my MultiSync 3D monitor). This way I can
simultaneously play and make changes to the guide at the same time.

The sound is hooked up to an old stereo box I got from Radio Shack when I
acquired my first Amiga 500 in 1990 and it has served me well considering its
age.

For my guide work I have 22 memory cards for my PlayStation 2. I have
reorganized the game saves on my memory cards and I now have eight cards
specifically dedicated to "Grand Theft Auto III", "Grand Theft Auto: Vice
City" (Original Version (1.40)), and "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas" (which
uses up 15 cards), "Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories", and "Grand Theft
Auto: Vice City Stories".

These memory cards allow me to quickly go and try out new ideas (and modify
old ones) when they occur to me or suggested by others.

I have now done 100% Completion three times on three different versions (PS2
- Original, PS2 - Double Pack, Xbox - Double Pack) getting information
for this guide.

Welcome to my "Grand Theft Auto III" guide! If this is the first time you
have visited, you will find a lot of useful information in a highly organized
format that you can use to beat all of the missions of the game.

Quotes taken from readers' e-mail are presented "as is" and may include
spelling and grammatical errors.

I also employ some creative writing in the chapter "Liberty City: 1998 to
2001" and in the land-marking sections.

When I first posted the initial version of my Vice City guide, which was my
first one, I did not know how well it would go over and how many people would
respond. I wasn't exactly swamped with e-mail but I do get letters from time
to time.

Sometimes people would ask for advice and others would say how cool the guide
is. All it takes is for one person to say how good and useful your guide is
to make it all worthwhile. And others have made suggestions that have been
incorporated into my guides.

I want to thank GameFAQs for creating a place where such documents can be
hosted for the benefit of all gamers. I also want to thank IGN.com,
NeoSeeker.com, TheVGNation.com, GameHelper.com, and many other sites for
their generosity in hosting this guide along with my other work on their
sites.

I also want to thank everybody who has taken the time to download and 
read this guide. I love this game and I wanted to share my creative ideas 
with fellow GTA3 "thuggers".

And, of course, I want to give a special thanks to all those who have taken 
the time to write to me and tell me what you thought, make suggestions, and 
ask questions.

With that said, let's get down to business shall we?.....

The main emphasis of this guide is to provide creative and simple solutions
to many of the missions for "Grand Theft Auto III". Many hours were spent
going over each mission and finding unique ways to solve them. I think you
will be surprised by many of the solutions found here.

I also reference the map/poster that comes with the game (there is also a map 
in the manual). Some of the location names come from that.

I have worked hard to make sure that this guide is as complete as possible
but at the same time leave room for exploration. I even included interesting
and humorous anecdotes, observations, and lines from GTA3. I hope that you
enjoy this guide as much as learn from it.

While this guide was written initially for the PS2 version of the game, this 
guide will also benefit those with the PC and Xbox versions of GTA3. If any
of the strategies in this guide won't work in either the PC or Xbox versions,
feel free to write me and let me know so I can make additional adjustments in
future revisions.

This guide is designed so that you can do the missions without any cheat
codes. However, I have included one code, the Health Code (in "Advanced Tips
And Information"), to give you a little flexibility because there are some
areas, especially the Ambulance Mission, where you may wish to use it.

Another emphasis of this guide is ORDER. If you do the missions and tasks in
a certain order, the game will be easier and more fun for you. Although the
guide follows more or less the traditional story order there are ways to
acquire more powerful weapons early in the game. The chapter "The Porter
Tunnel Glitch" is the best way to get these weapons early plus allow you to
do all of the side-missions prior to doing the Main Story Missions so you can
concentrate on those.

Each Hidden Package, Unique Stunt Jump, and Rampage has a letter designation
to make them easier to identify in this guide. In addition there is a three
letter Neighborhood Prefix (listings below) indicating a particular
neighborhood or area where the item can be found (in these examples I use
"XXX"):

  >>Hidden Packages will be identified with an "H".
    Examples: Hidden Package XXX-H21.
              Package XXX-H32.
              XXX-H65.

  >>Rampages will be identified with an "R".
    Examples: Rampage XXX-R34.
              XXX-R16.

  >>Unique Stunt Jumps will be identified with a "J".
    Examples: Unique Stunt Jump XXX-J24.
              Unique Jump XXX-J12.
              Jump XXX-J8.

 \=========================================================================/

"Grand Theft Auto III" is the successor to the moderately successful GTA2.
The first GTAs used a top-down perspective and a complex control scheme that
kind of made the game hard to get into.

"Grand Theft Auto III" put the main character in third person and the control
layout made it easier to play. Rockstar made up a reasonably good story with
real actors, like Joe Pataliano ("The Matrix", "The Sopranos") and Kyle
Maclachan ("Dune", "Twin Peaks").

They also made up a world where you can do just about anything at any time
regardless of whether it was violent or not. The combination resulted in
making "Grand Theft Auto III" one of the most popular vidgames of all time.

My first exposure to the Grand Theft Auto series began with "Grand Theft Auto
2" for the Sega Dreamcast. Once I got used to the overhead view and the
controls, it was easy for me to cause all kinds of chaos and havoc. While
there was nothing wrong with "Soul Calibur" and "Sonic Adventure", I liked
the idea of being the bad guy (or anti-hero if you prefer) where I can do
nasty stuff for the hell of it.

However, it turned out that the Dreamcast version was a shoddy port of the PC 
version, a fact that was made more obvious after I acquired the PS1 version.
No volume menu, no included map, music loops that restarted every time that
you got into a car, one mission that you couldn't do due to a bug, and the
fact that you could only save one game to a VMU (as opposed to 15 on the PS1
memory card) were some of the things that were wrong with the Dreamcast
version (at least it looked good in VGA). And there was no real ending to
"Grand Theft Auto 2" (either version), just a "Game Complete" screen. Very
disappointing.

But I still liked GTA2 despite it's flaws. I especially liked running over 
people (and cars) with the tank. And GTA2 looked better than GTA1 which I 
acquired later. GTA1 had more discernible endings at the end of each level
and it also had music that you could also listen to in a regular CD player.

Then along came "Grand Theft Auto III". I first saw it at a Game World (now
GameStop - and moved to a different location) on Bandera Road here in San
Antonio shortly after it came out in October 2001. They had it playing on
their 27-inch TV so you could try it out. I decided to play around for about
15 minutes and then continue looking around the store. 

Two hours later, I'm still shooting people, running them over, and making a 
general nuisance of myself in the fictitious metropolis of Liberty City. Up
to this point there were only two games that hooked me to the point that I
got the system because of them: "Defender of the Crown" (Commodore Amiga) and
"Goldeneye" (Nintendo 64). And now "Grand Theft Auto III" (PlayStation 2). I
eventually got the system for Christmas and got GTA3 a couple of days later
(my family could not find the game in time to give it to me for Christmas).

I had a whole lotta fun with GTA3. I completed the missions, I got 100%
Completion, and I went on city-wide rampages. But I especially enjoyed
playing demolition derby with the Cops and jacking cars from the Yakuza
("I'll get you!"). The game is one of the best designed games I have ever
seen. It was a freeform, do anything you want design that made GTA3 more than
just an interactive crime spree - it was an experience.

But GTA3 was just the beginning. Vice City would later outdo GTA3 on many
levels and then San Andreas far surpassed both GTA3 and Vice City combined.

With all that said, let's get down to the business of the guide itself and I 
will start with the differences between the Original and Double Pack versions 
for the PS2.....

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

After doing some closer examination of both my Original Version and Double
Pack Version discs, I concluded that there are no major differences between
the Original, Greatest Hits, and Double Pack versions of GTA3.

Originally I thought that they had changed the requirements of the Ambulance
Mission for the DP version but one of my readers, Dan Schauer, indicated to
me that this was not so and I verified his information. More details on that
in the Ambulance Mission portion of the guide.

In addition, I placed my GTA3 discs in my Mac and opened up the file
"system.cnf" in BBEdit Lite:

BOOT2 = cdrom0:\SLUS_200.62;1
VER = 1.40
VMODE = NTSC

This was the case for both the Original and Double Pack discs. This means
that the Original and Double Pack are of the same version number (1.40).
Since the Greatest Hits version came out before the Double Pack this means
that it is also version 1.40. If Rockstar had made any major changes to GTA3
the version number would change (and the game saves from the new version
would be incompatible with the old version).

However, they did make a couple of tweaks without changing the major portion
of the code and version number:

  >>"Uzi" in the Original Version is now called the "Uz-I" (I use this 
    alternate spelling in the guide).

  >>One of the songs for Double Cleff FM, "O Mio Babbino Caro", was removed 
    starting with the PS2 Double Pack. It is not on any of the Xbox versions 
    either. Why was it removed? Unknown. Thanks goes to Blank Blank for that 
    find.

What are some of the differences between the Xbox and PS2 versions? Which one
is better (from a technical standpoint)? Here's the breakdown:

 /XXXXXXXX\
0==========0
| Graphics |
0==========0
 \XXXXXXXX/

  The graphics on the Xbox version are better than the PS2 version and 
  animate very well. Plus there's the added benefit of Progressive Scan for 
  the Xbox version.

  With the release of Xploder HDTV Player for the PS2 you can now enjoy GTA3 
  in 480p (although the main title introduction glitches up a bit due to 
  "meshing issues").

 /XXXXX\
0=======0
| Sound |
0=======0
 \XXXXX/

  The sound quality is about the same between the PS2 and Xbox versions of 
  GTA3. The Xbox version gets a slight edge due to its custom soundtrack 
  feature.

 /XXXXXXXX\
0==========0
| Controls |
0==========0
 \XXXXXXXX/

  The controls on the Xbox version are OK even though doing drive-bys is a 
  little awkward because you have to use the Right Analog Stick. The PS2 
  version gets the edge here because it is easier to do drive-bys with the L2 
  and R2 shoulder buttons.

>>PlayStation 2
  *************
  The PS2 version runs very well with no problems. No sudden pop-ins or 
  texture loading problems.

>>Xbox
  ****
  The Xbox version also runs very well with no sudden pop-in or texture 
  loading problems. The only time the game chugs even a little is when you 
  are blowing stuff up with the Rhino.

  GTA3 also glitches out very bad if you happen to have an Xbox with a 
  Thompson drive (I had to trade in my initial Xbox because of this problem).

  The best way to tell if you have the bad drive is when you load up the 
  game. If you can hear the title music but the screen remains black, you 
  have the bad drive. Microsoft used two other drives in addition to the 
  Thompson drive and only a drive replacement will solve this particular 
  problem.

As a result of these technical problems I have to say that it is a draw
between the PS2 and the Xbox version. This is not to dis the Xbox in any way
however. I have a lot of games for the Xbox and they all look and play great.

Based on recent information it appears that most of the PlayStation 2
library, including the GTA games, runs pretty well on the PlayStation 3. They
can even be run in Progressive Scan modes but, since I do not have a PS3 at
this time, I do not how well they look and play in these modes.

 /XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\
0==========================0
| Xbox Version Differences |
0==========================0
 \XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/

There are only a couple of differences in the Xbox version:

  >>Catalina looks very different in the Xbox version. She has a different 
    hairstyle, a very revealing top, a tattoo on her lower back, slight panty 
    exposure (around her pant line), and a navel ring.

  >>The dialogue in the cutscene for "Under Surveillance" (Asuka Kasen) was 
    changed. She mentions that the federal agents are doing the surveillance 
    instead of the Mafia. However, while the spoken dialogue was changed, the 
    subtitles were not thus making the cutscene a little awkward.

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

"Grand Theft Auto III" works with the latest Backward Compatibility updates
for the Xbox 360 (you need the Hard Drive to play Original Xbox games
on the Xbox 360).

You can play GTA3 in many different resolutions depending on your monitor or
HDTV setup. It looks and plays pretty good (although the main title intro
chugs quite a bit).

However, if you play it in 720p mode you may find that it slows down a little
from time to time because the Original Xbox version was not meant to be
played any higher than 480p.

Three bad things about playing GTA3 on the Xbox 360:

  >>You can't do custom soundtracks like you could on the Original Xbox.
  >>You can't transfer game saves to an external memory card for safekeeping.
  >>You can't transfer games saves from the Original Xbox to the Xbox 360.

But one good thing about playing GTA on the Xbox 360 is that the White and
Black buttons (from the Original Xbox controller) are replaced by the Left
and Right Buttons which are situated above the Left and Right Triggers on the
Xbox 360 pad.

Sadly, even if you use a USB-to-Xbox adapter, you cannot use an Xbox 360
controller with the Original Xbox.

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Xploder HDTV Player is a disc that will allow PlayStation 2 owners to play
most of their games in Progressive Scan mode. Many games will work but some
of them will have issues.

"Grand Theft Auto III" works great in 480p mode. However, the main title
intro will be glitchy because of "line meshing issues". This is actually a
minor problem since you can easily skip the opening credits by pressing X.
Once you get past the intro, all is good.

Because the graphics are designed for 480 vertical resolution it is not
recommended that you put "Grand Theft Auto III" in any mode higher than 480p.
The higher resolution modes, like 720p, simply shoehorn the 480 graphics into
the higher end modes and tend to really squash the screen.

This program, which has been floating around the internet for years, will let
you install your favorite games onto a hard drive (assuming you have an older
style PS2 "Fatty" (with a Network Adapter) or an early version of a PS2
"Slim" that has been modified to use a hard drive).

There are two variants of this program. The first variant is HDLoader which
is freeware and HDAdvance which is not. It is best to use HDLoader since it
is free and gets updated from time to time to improve compatibility and 
functionality.

HDLoader is best installed with a popular memory card exploit known as Free 
McBoot. It is how I am using HDLoader now (with a 160GB hard drive).

GTA3, from what I know, has always been compatible with the earliest versions
of HDAdvance and HDLoader. Why install the game on a hard drive? For
starters, less wear and tear on the DVD-ROM mechanism.

But mainly it is for faster loading speeds. Oddly enough, other than the fact
that it takes less than five seconds for the game to load up to the logo
screen from the game menu in HDLoader, there is practically no speed
difference in any given situation within GTA3. But it is still nice to play
it off the hard drive.

Currently there is no reliable method to use HDLoader with HDTV Player to 
allow you to play GTA3 off the hard drive in Progressive Scan mode.

One of the things that the newer Intel based Macintoshes can do is something
called BootCamp. This will allow you to install Windows on the Mac on its own
partition and you can switch to that operating system when you want to.

According to fellow Macintosh user John Fitzgibbons you can install the PC
version of "Grand Theft Auto III" on the Mac and it will run with no issues
under BootCamp.

With that said, let's move on to the most basic of functions......

Although the manual covers the setup pretty good, I felt that I should
include a section on controls for those who have acquired used copies of GTA3
that have no manuals.

Special thanks to spaceeinstein for his help with the PC controls and A1210
for his help with the Xbox controls.

It should be noted that on the PC version you have the option of using the
Mouse for targeting and driving instead of the Keypad.

I have also included basic action and vehicle information with their
respective control schemes.

[1] - If you hold down the Run button too long, you will tire and have to 
      rest before you can run again. Tapping the button in rhythm will serve 
      to help you run a little longer. The more times you run, the better 
      your stamina will be. You can solve the problem of tiring out by 
      getting the Infinite Run feature which is acquired by successfully 
      completing the Ambulance Mission (detailed later).

[2] - When holding a melee weapon (like a bat) or using your fist, the Attack 
      Button is used to swing at your target.

      When using Grenades, the same button is used to throw your weapon at 
      the target. The longer you hold, the farther you throw.

      When holding a gun (like a Pistol) or a heavy weapon (like a Rocket 
      Launcher), you use the Attack Button to shoot. Use the Target Button in 
      conjunction to aim at your enemy. 

[3] - When holding a gun, you hold down the Target Button target your enemy.  
      Use the Previous Weapon and Next Weapon Buttons to switch between 
      targets.

[4] - You can do this for precision walking (like on a steel beam) by helping 
      you "aim" your character in the direction you want him to face.

The Rhino is probably the single toughest vehicle in the game and is one of
the preferred vehicles to use in the Vigilante Mission (explained later in
the guide). You can acquire this vehicle during a 6-Star Wanted Rating and
take it from the soldiers, after the mission "Arms Shortage" (Ray Machowski),
or wait until after you've completed the Main Story Missions where one will
be unlocked for you at Phil Cassidy's Army Surplus.

Your Main Screen is where all of the action in "Grand Theft Auto III" take
place.

In the center of your screen is your main character, Claude Speed. You use
your Left Analog Stick to move him around and the Right Analog Stick to
rotate and manipulate the camera.

In the lower left corner of the Main Screen is the Radar. This is used to
help in finding your current position in the city, objectives, mission
strands, and Safehouses.

In the upper right corner of the Main Screen you will find the game clock,
your Health, your Armor (when you have Armor), your money, and the
weapon or item you are currently holding.

Weapons are the tools of the trade for any professional criminal. There are
12 different weapons that can be found and used to create mayhem and
abuse.

The description of the weapons are listed here and their locations revealed
in each major area of Liberty City:

  >>Fist
    ****
    Good for hands-on fisticuffs when you need a little money (or just to 
    open a can of Whoop-Ass on some poor soul).

  >>Baseball Bat
    ************
    Great for batting practice (on somebody's head) or breaking kneecaps. The 
    Baseball Bat Weapon Icon is immediately available at all Safehouses.

  >>Pistol
    ******
    A decent handgun that can be bought or acquired from dead Cops. You can 
    use this while running to make yourself harder to hit while taking down 
    someone at the same time.

  >>Uz-I
    ****
    One of the better guns here, it has a good rate of fire and accuracy. 
    Like the Pistol, you can aim and run at the same time while using this 
    weapon.

  >>Shotgun
    *******
    Just a standard pump action single barreled shotgun. Slow on the fire 
    rate but still effective. Perhaps too effective especially against cars. 
    This is almost as powerful as a Rocket Launcher when shooting up 
    vehicles. But you run slowly while holding one making you vulnerable to 
    Cops and pissed-off gang members (and pedestrians).

  >>AK-47
    *****
    This powerful machine gun will make mincemeat out of anybody in your way. 
    Like the Shotgun, you also run slowly while holding one.

  >>M-16
    ****
    This has a very fast rate of fire but your sight will jump all around the 
    screen. Good for quick work once you manage to compensate for the 
    unsteadiness of the gun-sight (you have to hold Target to properly aim 
    the weapon). This is another heavy weapon that slows you down when trying 
    to run with it.

  >>Sniper Rifle
    ************
    This fires one shot at a time and reloads slowly but it is effective. Use 
    Target to manually aim the weapon and use the Zoom In and Zoom Out 
    controls to help find and track your targets (the Zoom In / Out controls 
    vary from console to console).

  >>Rocket Launcher
    ***************
    This very destructive weapon is the most powerful in the game. Use Target 
    to aim and Attack to shoot. Don't be too close to your target though - 
    you can hurt yourself badly in the process. This heavy weapon will make 
    you run very slowly while holding it so care must be taken when wielding 
    it.

  >>Flame-Thrower
    *************
    Better than the Molotov for roasting nearby enemies because you can aim 
    where the flames go. Its main use is against the Rhino since fire is the 
    only thing that can destroy it.

  >>Molotov
    *******
    Can be used to flambe' your enemies and yourself if you're too careless 
    in where you throw one. Can also be used to destroy the Rhino.

  >>Grenades
    ********
    Toss one of these and watch the crowds scatter (in more ways than 
    one).....

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

But Weapon Icons aren't the only things you will find scattered around
Liberty City. You will also find these other icons that you can use to help
you out.

The basic information for each icon is listed here and their locations
revealed in each major area of Liberty City:

 /XXXXXXXXXXX\
0=============0
| Health Icon |
0=============0
 \XXXXXXXXXXX/

  This heart-shaped icon is used to restore your health to its maximum of 
  100.

 /XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\
0=================0
| Body Armor Icon |
0=================0
 \XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/

  This armor-shaped icon will increase your armor rating to its maximum of 
  100.

 /XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\
0===================0
| Police Bribe Icon |
0===================0
 \XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/

  These star-shaped icons will drop your Wanted Rating by one star when 
  picked up. It is best to know where all the bribe icons are located before 
  doing any missions so you can quickly deal with any law enforcement 
  pursuit.

 /XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\
0=================0
| Adrenaline Icon |
0=================0
 \XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/

  This pill-shaped icon will slow things down and give you super strength. 
  Good for tight situations when you need a little extra help.

 \=========================================================================/

Every metropolis has a Police force and Liberty City is no different. When
you do something bad near a Cop, like mugging a person, one of the stars will
light up indicating a Wanted Rating. The Cops will then try to bust you. The
more stars you have, the more aggressive they will be. There are several ways
to get rid of a Wanted Rating:

  >>Hiding out somewhere for a bit (only works at 1-Star).
  >>Driving a car (excluding rescue and most Police Vehicles) into a Pay 'N' 
    Spray.
  >>Getting a Police Bribe Icon (drops the Wanted Rating down a notch).
  >>Completing the current mission (if you get a Wanted Rating during one).
  >>Getting Busted or Wasted.
  >>Saving your game then reloading the saved game (thanks goes to LR for 
    that handy bit of info).

There are six Wanted Ratings. The higher you go, the more aggressive the 
pursuit. Below are the Wanted Ratings and what you can expect.....

0=======0
| 1-Star \
0=========0

  You are of mild interest to the Cops. They will chase you on foot and will 
  smack you with their fists when close enough. They would rather not be 
  chasing you but will be more than happy to bust you if you're stupid enough 
  to let them ("Anything you say is SHIT!!!"). Hiding out somewhere for 
  awhile will get rid of a 1-Star Wanted Rating.

0=======0
| 2-Star \
0=========0

  Things get a bit more serious here. The number of Cops increase a bit and 
  they will start shooting you instead of hitting you with their fists.

0=======0
| 3-Star \
0=========0

  At this level, a helicopter will start pursuing you and will shoot at you 
  if you stand still long enough for it to do so. And the Police will get 
  more aggressive in their pursuit of you.

0=======0
| 4-Star \
0=========0

  Now the SWAT team joins in. They will try to blockade the road with their 
  Enforcers in addition to everything else being thrown at you. This is the 
  highest wanted level you can obtain while (officially) confined to 
  Portland Island.

0=======0
| 5-Star \
0=========0

  The FBI will now lend their assistance in hopes of bringing you down. They 
  will ride in black FBI Cars and carry four agents, all packing AK-47's and 
  they are not afraid to use them. In addition, a second helicopter will join 
  in tracking you down. The FBI Car is the only Police Vehicle that you can 
  use in a Pay 'N' Spray. You can max out at 5-Star after unlocking Staunton 
  Island.

0=======0
| 6-Star \
0=========0

  After making mincemeat of the Police force, including the FBI, the city 
  will now call in the Army to deal with you. They will come in with Rhinos 
  and trucks and will mainly try to kill you (but they will arrest you if the 
  opportunity presents itself).

  The soldiers will kill you quickly with their M-16's and barely getting 
  touched (while in a vehicle) by a Rhino will spell certain death. It will 
  be quite difficult to survive at this level for very long.

  You can achieve this maximum Wanted Rating after unlocking Shoreside Vale.

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

As noted above you can drive a car or motorcycle, excluding Police and rescue
vehicles, into a Pay 'N' Spray to change the color of your vehicle, as well
as repair it, to get rid of Wanted Ratings at a cost of $1,000.

There are three Pay 'N' Sprays in Liberty City where you can go to get rid of
your Wanted Ratings and repair your vehicle:

  >>Red Light District (Portland Island).
  >>Newport (Staunton Island).
  >>Pike Creek (Shoreside Vale).

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

If you get a Wanted Rating and the Cops end up catching you, you are then
Busted. Any mission you were doing at the time will be Failed.

When you are Busted, you are sent to the nearest Police Station where you
will be processed (which takes six game hours) and released. You also lose
all weapons including your Body Armor.

In addition, you will be fined based on the number of Wanted Rating Stars you
have when you are Busted:

  >>1-Star: $100.
  >>2-Star: $200.
  >>3-Star: $400.
  >>4-Star: $600.
  >>5-Star: $900.
  >>6-Star: $1,500. ++NOTE: You won't be fined after you get Busted on your 
                            first 6-Star Wanted Rating run but you will be 
                            fined the next time you are Busted at 6-Star 
                            Wanted Rating.

There are three Police Stations in Liberty City where you may find yourself
if you are Busted by the Cops:

  >>Portland View (Portland Island).
  >>Torrington (Staunton Island).
  >>Pike Creek (Shoreside Vale).

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

If you do something to empty your Health Bar, like being too close to an
explosion, getting shot up a lot, or drowning, you will then be Wasted. Any
mission you were doing at the time will be Failed.

When you are Wasted, you are sent to the nearest Hospital where you will be
treated (which takes six game hours), billed $1,000, and released. You also
lose all weapons including your Body Armor.

There are three Hospitals in Liberty City where you may find yourself if you
are Wasted for any reason:

  >>Sweeney Memorial Hospital (Portland View - Portland Island).
  >>Carson General Hospital (Rockford - Staunton Island).
  >>Hope Medical College (Pike Creek - Shoreside Vale).

In GTA3, you can also grab Police Vehicles and use them in Vigilante Missions
(explained later). And there are a few Police Vehicles you can use for that
purpose:

  >>Police Car (found anywhere. Bonus: you get 5 Shotgun shells when entering 
                one (if you don't already have a Shotgun you can get a 
                Shotgun with 5 shells)).
  >>SWAT Enforcer (at 4-Star Wanted Rating plus at the back of the Torrington 
                   Police Station on Staunton Island. Bonus: you can get Body 
                   Armor when entering an Enforcer).
  >>FBI Car (at 5-Star Wanted Rating. Bonus: only Police Vehicle you can use 
             at a Pay N' Spray to get rid of a Wanted Rating).
  >>Rhino (at 6-Star Wanted Rating - also unlocked at Phil Cassidy's Army 
           Surplus at the end of the Main Story Missions).

Below are some tips and additional information that will be of benefit to 
you:

0================0
| The Health Code \
0==================0

  Even though you can do everything in this guide without the use of any 
  cheat codes, I felt that I should provide this one to give the user a 
  little bit of flexibility. There are several areas of the game that can 
  possibly frustrate gamers and this code can be of use there. There are also 
  a few areas where I actually encourage its use (like the Ambulance 
  Mission).....

    >>[PS2] - R2 Button (x2), L1 Button, R1 Button, Left (D-Pad),
              Down (D-Pad), Right (D-Pad), Up (D-Pad), Left (D-Pad),
              Down (D-Pad), Right (D-Pad), Up (D-Pad)

    >>[PC] - Gesundheit

0===============0
| Quick Stopping \
0=================0

  You can increase your braking power if you hold down Handbrake and Reverse 
  together. This works well in tight spaces (especially on the Ambulance 
  Mission).

0================0
| Quick Targeting \
0==================0

  When locking onto targets with a gun (like a Pistol) while holding down 
  Target, you can use the Next and Previous Weapon buttons to switch targets. 
  You can also let go of the Target button and quickly press it again to pick 
  up another target (after you kill the previous one).

0===================0
| The Tank Gun Boost \
0=====================0

  When you want to increase the speed of the often slow Rhino, rotate the 
  Main Gun 180 degrees so it faces the rear. Then fire the gun and keep 
  firing. The gun recoil will then propel it forward. The faster you fire, 
  the faster the tank will go. You can make the tank go very fast this way.

0=================0
| Useful Shortcuts \
0===================0

  There are a couple of shortcuts that are very useful and will cut down on 
  traveling time. I have given them names and refer to them throughout the 
  guide:

   >>Chinatown Shortcut
     ******************
     This is a small north-south alleyway west of Sweeney General Hospital in 
     Portland that allows you to go from Chinatown to Red Light District 
     without going around the buildings. It is great for eluding Police 
     because it also contains a Police Bribe.

   >>Gardens Shortcut
     ****************
     Directly across the street from the parking garage of your Wichita 
     Gardens hideout is the Gardens Shortcut. There is a very large gap 
     between the guardrails and will lead to a gently sloping grassy 
     hillside. Going from the garage and through the shortcut will take you 
     to the main road leading to the Porter Tunnel and Cochrane Dam. A real 
     time saver.

0================================0
| Perfect Quadruple Insane Stunt? \
0==================================0

  One of the things GTA3 players like to do is to get the best Insane Stunt 
  possible. The best I have done is a Perfect Triple Insane Stunt. This is 
  about as high as most players have gotten. There was talk about whether or 
  not you can do a Quadruple Insane Stunt but no one has ever reported doing 
  one and everybody said that there is no such thing.

  But while perusing the "american.gxt" file on the PS2 version (with the 
  disc inside my Mac), I came across this listing of Insane Stunts:

     >>Insane Stunt
     >>Perfect Insane Stunt
     >>Double Insane Stunt
     >>Perfect Double Insane Stunt
     >>Triple Insane Stunt
     >>Perfect Triple Insane Stunt
     >>Quadruple Insane Stunt
     >>Perfect Quadruple Insane Stunt

  As you can see, there is a Quadruple Insane Stunt listed. But since no one 
  has ever reported doing one I have come up with two possibilities: One, 
  that Rockstar took out the Quadruple rating (but left the text) or two, 
  that the requirements for a Quadruple Insane Stunt are so high that no one 
  has figured out how to get it yet.

  If anybody has managed to get either a Quadruple Insane Stunt or a Perfect 
  Quadruple Insane Stunt I'd like to hear about it and how you did it so I 
  can put it in future revisions.

0===============0
| Stock-Up Trick \
0=================0

  If you have a bunch of Weapon Icons at your Portland Island Safehouse you 
  can quickly gain ammo for your weapons with this little trick.

  Open the garage and remove any vehicle inside (just park it nearby for 
  now). Then pick up all of the Weapon Icons to increase your ammo, run all 
  the way to the back wall of the garage, and run out. You will see that all 
  of the Weapon Icons have immediately regenerated. Repeat this until you 
  have lots of ammo for your weapons.

  According to Josh Dady, this trick also works with the Police Bribes that 
  spawn at your Safehouses.

  Then save your game, after re-parking your vehicle inside your garage, 
  before resuming with the game.

0=================0
| The Hooker Trick \
0===================0

  You can increase your health above 100 (up to 125) by picking up a 
  prostitute (preferably with a four-door car) and driving her to a secluded 
  place to do "business". Thanks to Antonino Giuseppe Cardinale, Jr. and 
  Scotty Boutin for pointing out something that should have been in this 
  guide from the start.

| I.24. The Purple Nines Glitch (All Versions)                       [PNGL] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

One of the most notorious bugs in the GTA series is one called the Purple
Nines Glitch. This is a problem that has snared many an unwary gamer,
including myself, since the PS2 version came out. Sadly, this problem was NOT
fixed in the PS2 Double Pack version and even appears in the Xbox version
though it is one of the most well known problems in GTA3.

What is the Purple Nines Glitch? The glitch is related to the D-Ice missions
in Wichita Gardens which become available in the latter half of the game.
Most of the D-Ice missions involve the removal of a rival gang, the Purple
Nines. When you first arrive at Wichita Gardens you will see plenty of gang
members roaming about. Some will wear red shirts (the Red Jacks) and some
will wear purple (actually lavender) shirts (the Purple Nines). After the
completion of "Rumble" (D-Ice) you will effectively destroy the Purple Nines
and from then on you will not see any Purple Nines roaming Wichita Gardens.
You will see nothing but Red Jacks.

The bug manifests itself when you decide to start a new game after "Rumble" 
(D-Ice) using the New Game option in the Options area. Naturally the game
will reset everything, gangs, vehicle lists, Hidden Packages, and so on.
Everything, that is, except the Purple Nines. For some reason, that remains
off. So when you make your way back to D-Ice and do his first mission, "Uz-I
Money" (D-Ice), there are no Purple Nines to be found - the game won't
generate any.

Therefore, it becomes impossible to complete the mission and you won't be
able to access his other missions either thus denying you a chance at 100%
Completion.

How do you get around it when you want to start a new game? There are three
ways.

First, reload a saved game that is prior to "Rumble" (D-Ice) and then do New
Game.

Second, is to keep your first saved game, right after "Luigi's Girls", in one
slot and never overwrite it. Then, if you want to start a new game, simply
load up this saved game and play anew.

And third, thanks to Fred Chagnon, is to load up the game with no memory card
in the slot. After loading up the game, which will start anew because there
was no memory card in the slot to load up a saved game, then you can put in
your memory card to save any new games you come up with.

In earlier versions of the guide I had given the main character a name: Alex.
This was to identify him better within the guide and give him a little
personality. Rockstar Games had originally not given "Alex" a name because he
was supposed to be an every-man kind of character. So I gave him one for my
guide.

But, as "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas" was released, there was talk that
"Alex" makes an appearance and even has a name: Claude. I had doubted the
name at first since I had not gotten far enough into San Andreas at that
point to see for myself.

However, after completing San Andreas and receiving the phone calls (with the
subtitles turned on) that mentions his name, I've come to accept that the
name for the main character of GTA3 is indeed Claude and I have changed the
guide to accommodate. Claude also appeared in GTA2 and his full name, in the
credits, is Claude Speed.

According to Austin Taft the name Claude also appears in the "american.gxt"
file on the PlayStation 2 version of GTA3. It appears just before the main
group of readable text (that starts with the line "Hey! Get back in the
vehicle!").

With the release of "Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories", set in the year
1998, we got to see what Liberty City was like prior to Claude's arrival in
2001. These are some of the things that happened between the two stories:

  >>While it was understandable that the ferry workers were upset over the 
    Porter Tunnel project, no one seemed to have paid any attention to the 
    Callahan Bridge. When the Bridge was opened in late 1998, ferry 
    rider-ship plummeted. Why pay for the ferry when you can go over the 
    Callahan Bridge for free? Almost a year after the Callahan Bridge was 
    opened the ferries were shut down. At that point construction began on 
    the Porter Tunnel entrance for Portland Island. The ferry terminal was 
    dismantled and the remains, plus the dirt excavated, were used to fill in 
    the nearby Harwood Dirt-Track. This, of course, leads to.....

  >>American Road Safety for Everybody (ARSE) finally succeeded in getting 
    motorcycles banned from Liberty City much to the dismay of the motorcycle 
    makers who immediately took the group, and city, to court. However, as is 
    typical of the American justice system, the legal matters are taking 
    their sweet time going through the motions. Although it appears that the 
    motorcyclists may very well win the case and get the popular vehicles 
    back in Liberty City, the shop Hogs & Cogs was forced to close after the 
    motion was passed. The owners plan to reopen in a bigger and better 
    location when the motion is finally overturned.

  >>Liberty City is still recovering from the Fort Staunton Disaster that 
    claimed hundreds of lives. Many rumors still swirl about what caused the 
    explosion (everything from sewer rats to mob involvement) but the 
    official cause has been listed as "accidental ignition of natural gas". 
    That still doesn't satisfy many of the survivors. To make matters more 
    interesting, Pan-Lantic Construction almost immediately moved in to take 
    down the ruins and begin building office complexes where the neighborhood 
    once stood. The survivors filed lawsuits to stop the construction but 
    stood little chance against Big Money which had the lawsuits quickly 
    dismissed. Three years after the disaster, the survivors are still trying 
    to cope.....

  >>Liberty Memorial Coliseum opened with great fanfare in 1999. That's the 
    good news. The bad news is that the football team that it is meant for, 
    the Liberty City Cocks, suck. The team has always been so-so but they 
    have been on a downward turn as of late. Even the coach has called them 
    out in the press saying that the team is "soft" and "unable to penetrate 
    the endzone". The fans, who have been taken to throwing bottles of 
    erectile dysfunction pills onto the field lately, aren't helping either. 
    As for the Coliseum's obscenely small parking lot, that's a whole other 
    issue.....

This is the main industrial area for Liberty City. The southeast part of the
island is where the main docks are located along with many businesses. The
western part of the island is home to many Chinese who have made this area
their own.

The northern area of the island has a large concentration of adult oriented
businesses legal and illegal. On the eastern side is where a lot of Italians
make their residence including the local Mafia.

Liberty City: 1998.

Toni Cipriani, a valued friend of the Salvatore Leone crime family, returns
from exile after killing a made man. Once he arrives, he begins an odyssey
that will eventually bring Liberty City under Leone control and bring peace
to the local criminal underworld. Temporarily, at least.....

Liberty City: 2001.

A ruthless small time criminal, and our "hero", Claude Speed, is involved in
a robbery with a couple of accomplices at the Liberty City Bank. As they make
their getaway, with Claude trailing, a gunshot is heard.

The woman, Catalina, has killed one of the accomplices and now has her sights
on Claude. She shoots Claude, leaving him for dead but he survives.
Unfortunately, for Claude, he is put on trial and sent to prison for ten
years.

As Claude is being transferred to Liberty Penitentiary, the prison van is
ambushed while on the Callahan Bridge. It appears that one of the other
prisoners is being rescued by a group of Columbians.

However, Claude and another prisoner, 8-Ball, take advantage of the situation
and manage to free themselves. As they set themselves free, a bomb, that was
thrown onto the bridge by the Columbians, explodes. This leaves a huge gap in
the bridge and destroys most of the vehicles on it.

Now begins the first mission of the game, "Give Me Liberty", a simple driving
mission to a little Safehouse in the Red Light District of Portland Island.
This also serves as simple tutorial to the driving and map mechanics.

You can collect Hidden Packages (to gain Weapon Icons) and Unique Stunt Jumps
while driving around during "Give Me Liberty". But you can't do Rampages or
any vehicle mission. Just park the Kuruma (with 8-Ball inside) and jack
another car to do other stuff. When you are finished, go back to the parked
Kuruma and go to the Safehouse.

When you arrive at the Safehouse, your new friend, 8-Ball, tells you to go to
a place owned by a guy named Luigi. You can't save your game yet so go to
Luigi's.

When you arrive at Luigi's, you start the mission titled "Luigi's Girls".
After a brief introduction, Luigi tells you to get one of his girls from the
clinic. This is nothing more that a simple pick-up mission. Take the car,
drive over to the hospital, pick up Misty, and drive her back to Luigi's
club. You will then earn $1,500 for mission completion.

After that go back to your Safehouse and save your game.

To start, I'm going to do as much of the off-story stuff as possible before 
doing the second mission for Luigi, "Don't Spank Ma Bitch Up" (Luigi 
Goterelli). A lot of this stuff can be done in any order but doing some
things in a certain sequence will be of most benefit to you (like doing the
Ambulance Mission (for Infinite Run and Adrenaline) and collecting Hidden
Packages for Weapon Icons for my Safehouses.

Your Safehouse in the Red Light District is a simple little getaway where you
can save your game and store one car in the garage.

At the beginning there is just the Baseball Bat Weapon Icon and over the
course of the game you will generate many more weapon and power-up icons here
(and at your other Safehouses at Staunton Island and Shoreside Vale).

After saving the game, let's begin by listing the:

              Island).

    Location: St. Mark's, two blocks south of the Harwood Fire Station (east 
              side of potholed street).
    Notes: These ruins used to be a place owned by Toni Cipriani. It was 
           destroyed in an arson fire a couple of years ago. While no one was 
           ever caught, rumors persist concerning the building's destruction. 
           Most rumors say that it was in retaliation for a gang attack but 
           one rumor going around was that Toni's mother had the place 
           firebombed so she could get her son to move back in with her! It 
           is currently undergoing rebuilding under new ownership including 
           repairing pipes under the nearby street.

  Cipriani's Ristorante
  *********************
    Location: (Central) St. Mark's one block directly southeast of The Ruins.
    Notes: This is where you can sometimes find a Karuma parked in the small

           in and out of this place.....

 \=========================================================================/

At the Portland Docks area (in the northeast section of Portland Docks just
west of the ship cranes and north of the Garage Building) there is a building
that appears to have a list on one wall right by a garage door. This is the
Industrial Import Export Garage.

To get to the garage, when you enter through the main gate at the docks, cut
through the parking lot on the left going northeast. When you get to where
you see two paths (where three buildings meet) take the left one. Follow
along the right side of the path (it will curve alongside the building on
your right) and it will take you to the Industrial Import Export Garage.

There are 16 vehicles listed that you need to collect. For each vehicle you
obtain you will get $1,000. If you get all 16 vehicles listed you will get a
$200,000 bonus plus you can have unlimited use of the cars you have
collected.

Just walk into the garage and pick one of the vehicle icons. You will then be
instructed to exit the garage and in a few seconds, your new car will be made
available to you.

Below is the vehicle list and where to find them. These are some of the more
reliable locations and missions to find the vehicles. "Generated at random"
means that you have to wait for them to spawn on their own before you can
acquire them:

                 front.

Some of the generated vehicles can be found when doing the Vigilante and 
Firetruck missions. Simply end the mission when the needed vehicle shows
itself (after killing the criminal or putting out the fire) and drive it to
the garage.

You don't have to complete the list before doing any of the Main Story 
Missions. As you can see, it is sometimes easier to wait for certain sections 
to open or do certain missions to get the cars you want. This applies to all
of the car lists in the game.

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

At the north part of the Portland Docks area and east of the Industrial
Import Export Garage is the Emergency Vehicle Crane. This works just like the
nearby garage except it involves Police, rescue, and army vehicles.

There are seven vehicles to collect, with a $1,500 bonus for each one, and if
you get them all you will be rewarded with a $200,000 bonus plus unlimited
use of the vehicles. Choose the vehicle icon of the one you want and wait as
the crane delivers the car to you.

Where to drop the vehicles off isn't obvious at first. To the east of the
Industrial Import Export Garage you'll notice a bunch of multi-colored
container crates with a Yankee parked against it.

Just before the crates you'll notice some dark yellow diagonal stripes on the
ground with what appears to be a magnet overhead. This is the area for the
Emergency Vehicles to be dropped off. If you try to drop any other vehicle
there you'll get the "We're not interested in the model" message.

You don't have to get all of the vehicles before doing the Main Story
Missions. Besides, you can't get the FBI Car until you unlock Staunton Island
(so you can get a 5-Star Wanted Rating) or the Rhino until you unlock
Shoreside Vale (so you can get a 6-Star Wanted Rating - unless you want to
use the Rhino spawn cheat....).

Below is the vehicle list as well as where to find them:

  >>Police Car

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Now that I have familiarized myself with Portland Island, it is time to do
the Ambulance Mission.

Let's face it, this mission is a pain in the ass. An unstable vehicle, no
full map, less durability, and the arbitrary time amounts make this a lot
harder than it needs to be. By doing this now, I can acquire Health and
Adrenaline Icons at my Safehouses and the Infinite Run feature upon
successful completion. And once this is done, you don't have to worry about
this anymore and focus on the other tasks at hand.

Even though Staunton Island is flatter terrain, the best place to do the
Ambulance Mission is at Portland. On both Staunton Island and Shoreside Vale,
you have to deal with the hostile Columbians who will try to yank you from
your Ambulance and, if they do that, you will fail the mission. At this early
part of the game, you don't have to worry about any hostilities on Portland
Island (yet).

The best thing to do beforehand is to practice driving the ambulance around
before doing the mission, especially around the hills of St. Marks. Learn how
to stop the thing properly so you can lessen the risk of killing patients.
Learn the Health Code, you will probably end up using this during the
mission. Go back near Sweeney General Hospital and start the mission when
you're ready.

When the mission begins, you are at Level 1 and you have one patient to
deliver to the hospital. At each level you complete, the number of patients
increase by one so at Level 2 you have two patients, at Level 3, three
patients, and so on. There are a total of twelve levels to complete to
successfully accomplish the Ambulance Mission.

The ambulance can only carry three patients at a time so you will have to
think in groups of three when doing the later levels. See how the green dots
(the patients) are grouped along the edge of your compass and try to plan a
good route to get to your patients. Try to go for the furthest patient first
and work back to the hospital. If you don't think you will have enough time
to get the furthest one first, get the first one on you see on the way then
make your way to the furthest patient.

When approaching a patient, Make sure that the patient is on the right of
your ambulance and don't get too close as the patient is running toward your
vehicle as you approach. When the patient just starts to get in the
ambulance, go. This will save a second or two. Use your siren as this causes
the cars to either stop or turn away from you making it a little easier to
evade them. Use the Health Code, if necessary, when your Ambulance is smoking
while you are dropping off patients at the hospital.

When you complete Level 12 you will successfully complete the Ambulance
Mission and gain the Infinite Run feature (never tire when running).

In my previous versions of the guide, I had said the following:

     "If you own the Original PS2 version, you have to successfully rescue a
      minimum of 50 patients (at the completion of a level) to get the Health 
      Icon and a minimum of 100 patients (total) (at the completion of a 
      level) to get the Adrenaline Icon for all of your hideouts during the 
      Ambulance Mission.

     "If you own the PS2 Double Pack, Xbox Double Pack, or PC versions, you 
      have to successfully rescue a minimum of 30 patients (at the completion 
      of a level) to get the Health Icon and a minimum of 75 patients (total) 
      (at the completion of a level) to get the Adrenaline Icon for all of 
      your hideouts during the Ambulance Mission."

But one my readers, Dan Schauer, indicated to me that there were no changes
at all to the Ambulance Mission rewards:

     "I have the original version (I think, unless Rockstar did multiple
      versions Pre-Greatest Hits, like they did with Vice City). I can say 
      for a fact that it is NOT a Greatest Hits or Double Pack version. And
      I've never had the problem mentioned, that you need 50/100 patients for 
      the Health/Adrenaline.

      My understanding on how it works is this.

      You need 35/70 patients for the Health/Adrenaline pickups to appear at 
      your hideout (read from Minesweeper's walkthrough on Gamefaqs.com, the 
      numbers could be a little off). But, either because of a bug, or
      intentionally, it will not page you until you've completed an ambulance 
      level, or lost the level with the required number of patients saved.

      (assuming all in one run, with no patients saved prior to this point)
      Ambulance Level 7 completes at 28 patients, and level 8 completes at 
      36, but you do not get notified of the Health until after level 8, or
      if you lose level 8 with the required number of patients saved.

      Similarly, Ambulance levels 11 and 12 finish at 66 and 78 patients
      respectively. The game does not page you about the Adrenaline until the 
      completion of level 12 (when it also pages you about infinite run), or 
      if you lose level 12 with the required number of patients.

     "In the DP version, if you're good enough, you can get everything in one 
      run because you can rescue 78 patients in the 12 levels of the
      Ambulance Mission." (from your FAQ)

      In the version I have (which is the original as far as I know), I'm 
      able to do this too.

      Just pointing this out. I don't know who's had problems with the
      50/100, but I never have."

I did the Ambulance Mission in one run in the Original Version and Dan was
right about the info he presented. So the Ambulance Mission is the same for
all PS2 versions (Original, Double Pack, Greatest Hits), PC version, and the
Xbox version.

I also had a gentleman named Haenlomal inform me of a bug that messes up how
the patients are counted during the mission:

     "How the Paramedic Mission bug REALLY works in GTA 3

     "The count of the number of people rescued in Paramedic missions is 
      bugged. Essentially, the number of people that the Stats screen says 
      that you've rescued is not necessarily the same number the game thinks 
      that you've rescued! For simplicity's sake, let's refer to the number 
      shown on the Stats screen as the "external number", and the number that 
      the game thinks you've rescued as the "internal number". When it is 
      written that (for example) you need to have rescued 35 people to get 
      the health pickup, this is refering to the internal number! I've 
      noticed that this is a major source of confusion for a lot of players, 
      so I hope this clears up the issue once and for all.

      Here's how the bug works: whenever you drop off patients at the 
      hospital, the external number is updated. However, the internal number 
      is updated *ONLY* at the (successful) conclusion of each Paramedic 
      level. (In other words...oops! Someone at Rockstar was asleep behind 
      the wheel on this one...)

      An example should help make this clear: Suppose you start doing 
      Paramedics mission in a game where you've never done them before. And 
      suppose that you've completed Paramedic levels 1 to 3 without any 
      problems. At that point, the external number should read 6 (1+2+3=6), 
      and since the internal number is updated at the end of every Paramedic 
      level, it is also 6.  So far so good!

      Now, on Paramedic level 4, suppose that you successfully dropped off 
      the first 3 patients at the hospital, and are on your way to the last 
      patient. At this point, the external number would read 9 (6+3=9), but 
      because the internal number would not be updated until the level is 
      successfully done, it is still sitting at 6!

      Alas, tragedy strikes, and you accidentally kill your last patient. So, 
      you've successfully dropped off a grand total of 9 patients at the 
      hospital, and the external number in the Stats screen reflects that. 
      However, since you failed to complete Paramedic level 4, the internal 
      number sits at 6! And the game engine itself displays that. At the 
      conclusion of the mission, the following message flashes on the screen:

      "Paramedic mission ended. People saved: 6"

      And there is the bug in all its ugly glory! The only solution to all 
      this is to keep track of the internal number yourself until you get the 
      35 needed for the health pickup, or the 70 needed for the adrenaline 
      pill...yeah, yeah, I know, it sucks. :P

      Incidentally, note that because the internal number only gets updated 
      at the end of each Paramedic level, the only time you can actually 
      receive an award is at the end of a Paramedic level. Sometimes, this 
      means that your internal number would have exceeded the requirements. 
      Don't worry, you still get your reward. :)

      So, the final conclusion?  Yes, 35 rescued is the requirement for the 
      health pickup, and yes, 70 rescued is the requirement for the 
      adrenaline pill. However, these figures apply only to the *internal* 
      number.  The external number (the one that is actually shown on the 
      Stats screen) could be anything greater, depending on how much you have 
      messed up in the paramedic mission attempts!"

And I had another reader, Mr. Spock, give me this information:

     "FYI  Just to clarify the rewards a little on the ambulance mission in 
      GTA III; the health icon becomes available after 35 saved people and 
      the adrenalin icon after 70. That's cumulative and it doesn't matter 
      whether or not it took 70 tries all at mission level 1, i.e. like in 
      the pause menu under stats it would say "people saved 70" and "highest 
      ambulance mission 1". But it takes completing mission level 12 to get 
      the infinite run. So, completing level 12 gets you all three."

With the Infinite Run feature obtained I will go on to.....

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

As you go around the city, you will notice some skull icons laying about.
These are the Rampage Icons.

When one is activated, you will be instructed to kill or destroy certain
objects within two minutes and with a given weapon with unlimited ammo (that
you can't switch out of during the duration of the Rampage). The people that
you are instructed to kill are always gang members and you can pick up money
and weapons dropped by your victims during a Rampage.

Each Rampage in GTA3 has two locations, a primary and a secondary location.
If you fail the Rampage at its primary location, the Icon will move to a
secondary location. If you fail the Rampage at its secondary location, the
Icon will move back to its primary location.

There are a total of 20 Rampages in GTA3. The numbers go from north to south,
west to east. The primary location is designated as "A" and the secondary
location is designated "B".

Your reward for finishing Rampages will increase by $5,000 for each one 
completed and you will get a $1,000,000 bonus for successfully completing all 
20 Rampages.

One of the annoying things about the Rampages in GTA3 is that even if you are 
in the right position and doing the right things, the game may decide to not 
generate enough targets to complete the Rampage. This was something that was 
fixed, for the most part, for the other GTAs but has to be endured here.

  [STM-R1-A] -  Between the car garages east of Cipriani's Ristorante (near 
                the Mafia Sentinel) in St. Marks.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                Notes: Drive up to the Icon, get the Icon, and then go up to 
                       the entrance of Salvatore's Mansion. The Mafia are 
                       very hostile so they will gang up on you when 
                       attacked. The wall will help shield you from them 
                       while you take down those near the entrance. Go around 
                       the wall a little bit and take down those on the other 
                       side of the wall then go back behind the wall and get 
                       the ones that generate near the entrance. Repeat until 
                       complete.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  [STM-R1-B] -  In one of the backyards running along an alleyway south of 
                Cipriani's Ristorante. From Cipriani's Ristorante, go south 
                to the next block and turn left into the alley right next to 
                a shop with green awning. Once inside the alley, head east 
                and turn left at the first opening on the left then turn left 
                again. You should see the Rampage Icon against the wall.

                District.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                Notes: Go down the street and pick off the Diablos as they 
                       appear. Like the Mafia, they will generally gang up on 
                       you when attacked. Unlike the Mafia, however, they 
                       will either be unarmed or have a Baseball Bat as they 
                       attack. Their fists and bats won't do a lot of damage 
                       plus they make easy targets when they rush you. A 
                       fairly easy Rampage.

                Notes: Go up the stairs leading up to the train platform in 
                       St. Marks and drive to the Icon. Get the Icon and drop 
                       a Grenade by your car then drop down to street level. 
                       By blowing up your car, you take care of one vehicle 
                       leaving nine to blow up. Run up to cars and drop a 
                       Grenade near the front then run away so you don't get 
                       caught up in the blast. Pedestrians will attack you 
                       but you can easily outmaneuver them. You can also blow 
                       up the two cars in the SupaSave! Store parking lot not 
                       far from your position if you need to.

                       cars at the AMCO office southeast of your position if 
                       you need to.

                Notes: Get the Icon and go into the street to get the Triads. 
                       You can't run very fast because of the Shotgun and the 
                       Triads will gang up on you when attacked and they 
                       wield Baseball Bats and Pistols. But the powerful 
                       Shotgun will kill in one shot when up close so this 
                       Rampage isn't too hard even though they will take off 
                       armor and possibly some health while doing it.

                for the Old School, head east and through the intersection. 
                Turn right at the alley just past the intersection. Once past

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

All around Liberty City you will find objects that can be used as ramps for
vehicle jumping. Usually, on most jumps, you will just get some additional
money and not much more.

But on some jumps you will get a slow motion cutscene as you fly through the
air. These jumps are known as the Unique Stunt Jumps and, if you complete
them correctly, will add toward 100% Completion.

The best vehicle to use, for all of the jumps, is clearly the Cheetah unless
noted. There are a total of 20 Unique Stunt Jumps in the game.

Your reward for finishing Unique Stunt Jumps will increase by $5,000 for each 
one completed and you will get a $1,000,000 bonus for successfully completing 
all 20 Jumps.

Listed below are the eight Unique Stunt Jumps that are found on Portland
Island. Since the Cheetah is not usually found on Portland Island, you can
use the Banshee which is found at Capital Autos in Harwood:

 /XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\
0==========================0
| Red Light District (RLD) |
0==========================0
 \XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/

[RLD-J1] - The ramp sitting against the Chinatown Subway Entrance.
           Heading: South to North.
           Notes: You will need to land on your wheels on the elevated train 
                  track to get credit for the jump.

 /XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\

[CHT-J2] - The concrete ramp south of the pedestrian bridge leading from the 
           Chinatown El-Train Station to Chinatown.
           Heading: South to North.
           Notes: Jump over the bridge and through the Police Bribe to 
                  succeed.

[PHB-J3] - The ramp in the south part of the docks near the "Les Cargo" ship 
           (just north of the Linerunner).
           Heading: North to South.
           Notes: Jump over the tractor trailers to succeed. But don't go too 
                  fast or else you may jump into the water.

[TTN-J4] - The ramp on the east side of the building just north of Liberty 
           City Sawmills.
           Heading: East to West.
           Notes: You can't touch the building in order to get credit for the 
                  jump.

 /XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\
0=======================0
| Callahan Bridge (CBG) |
0=======================0
 \XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/

[CLB-J5] - The yellow and black striped ramp at the end of the median on the 
           bridge.
           Heading: West to East.
           Notes: Back up to the bridge gap to get enough speed for the jump 
                  and land on your wheels in the gap between the two main 
                  lanes.

[CLB-J6] - The large dirt pile under the bridge near where the bridge lanes 
           meet the ground.
           Heading: West to East.
           Notes: Jump over both white bridge bar supports to succeed.

 \XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/

[AQY-J7] - The ramp with the cones by the warehouse on the east side of 
           The Warehouses.
           Heading: East to West.
           Notes: Use the long pier where AQY-H32 is located to get enough 
                  speed for the jump and you have to either land on the 
                  second building or in the gap between the two to get credit 
                  for the jump.

[AQY-J8] - The large dirt mound between the piers south of The Warehouses.
           Heading: West to East.
           Notes: Use the sidewalk that goes alongside the Turtle Head 
                  Fishing Co. to get enough speed for the jump and you have 
                  to land on your wheels to get credit for the jump.

| II.15. Vigilante Mission (Portland Island)                         [VGPI] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

(Before you do this mission it is recommended that you acquire a lot of
Uz-I ammo for doing drive-bys and know where all of the Police Bribes are -
for controlling your Wanted Ratings.)

At the Portland View Police Station there is a Police Car parked at the
front. If you enter the Police car and press the Activate Vehicle Mission
button you will turn on the Vigilante Mission.

You start out at a random amount of time (based on distance) and will be
prompted to chase and destroy a selected target, which is another car. You
have to kill the criminal in the car before moving onto the next level. You
will be given extra time when you complete a level.

Sometimes, if you damage the criminal's car enough, the criminal may exit
the car to confront you. Drive-by or run him over to get rid of him.

The first twenty kills on Portland Island will get you two Police Bribes for 
your Safehouses. The first twenty kills on Staunton Island will get you two
more Bribes for your Safehouses. And the first twenty kills on Shoreside Vale
will get you the last two Bribes for all of your Safehouses. Each Police
Bribe acquired will get you one step closer to 100% Completion.

Here's how that works:

While on Portland Island, grab a Police Car then start the Vigilante Mission.
You need to kill a minumum of twenty criminals while on Portland Island to
make it count toward 100% Completion. You could kill 200 criminals here on
Portland Island if you want but it will not earn you the percentage. ONLY the
first twenty kills count toward it. After you get ten kills you will get a
Police Bribe for your Safehouses and at twenty you will earn another one (two
Police Bribes).

When you get to Staunton Island, grab a Police Car and do the Vigilante
Mission there. Again, ONLY the first twenty criminals you kill there will
count toward 100% Completion (regardless of how many you kill). After you get
ten kills you will get a Police Bribe for your Safehouses and at twenty you
will earn another one (this will get you to four Police Bribes).

When you get to Shoreside Vale, grab a Police Car and do the Vigilante
Mission there. Once again, ONLY the first twenty criminals you kill there
will count toward 100% Completion (regardless of how many you kill).

If you follow that then you will earn the all six Police Bribes for your
Safehouses and the percentage needed for 100% Completion.

There is a little trick that will make the Vigilante Mission a lot easier.
When you get close enough to the criminal, hit Pause, wait a few seconds, and
then unpause. The criminal will then stop and get out of his car in which
case you can either drive-by or run him over. Works in the Xbox version too.

| II.16. Firetruck Mission (Portland Island)                         [FTPI] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

This next mission involves the Firetruck which can be obtained at the Harwood
Fire Station. When you enter the Firetruck you can activate the Firefighter
Mission by pressing Activate Vehicle Mission.

Your goal is to put out vehicle fires. You are instructed to go to a area and
put out a car fire. The more fires that you put out in a given run, the more
money you make.

You are given about 22 seconds of time when you put out a fire and the game
likes to make you go from one end of Portland Island to the other so you end
up eating away a lot of that time.

There is also a bonus for putting out fires. When you put out the first
twenty fires in each section of the city (the first twenty for Portland
Island, the first twenty for Staunton Island, and the first twenty for
Shoreside Vale - 60 total), you will gain the Flame-Thrower weapon icon for
all of your Safehouses and inch closer to 100% Completion.

Here's how that works:

While on Portland Island, grab a Firetruck then start the Firetruck Mission.
You need to put out a minimum of twenty fires while on Portland Island to
make it count toward 100% Completion. You could put out 200 fires here on
Portland Island if you want but it will not earn you the percentage. ONLY the
first twenty fires you put out here count toward it.

When you get to Staunton Island, grab a Firetruck and do the Firetruck
Mission there. Again, ONLY the first twenty fires put out there will count
toward 100% Completion (regardless of how many you put out).

When you get to Shoreside Vale, grab a Firetruck and do the Firetruck Mission
there. Once again, ONLY the first twenty fires put out there will count
toward 100% Completion (regardless of how many you put out).

If you follow that then you will earn the Flame-Thrower Icon for your
Safehouses and the percentage needed for 100% Completion.

And like with the Vigilante Mission some of the cars you may need for the car
lists may be generated for the car fires. Abandon the mission to claim the
cars as needed.

| II.17. "Patriot Playground"                                        [PTPL] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

When you go to the SupaSave! Store in Portland View, you will see a Patriot
parked there. Entering it will trigger the vehicle mission "Patriot
Playground". This is the first of four vehicle side-missions found in Liberty
City.

In this mission you have five minutes to collect 15 checkpoints and you are
given 20 seconds for each one collected. The timer starts when you get the
first checkpoint.

Go behind the SupaSave! Store and up the stairs. After going partway up, veer
right and get the first checkpoint under the elevated tracks [1]. Then go
down to the beach.

As you head toward the beach, you will see the checkpoint there but you may
also see the top of a checkpoint on the rocky part just ahead of you. If you
angle the Patriot just right you can get this checkpoint [2] then the one on
the beach when you land [3] (if you miss [2] then climb up the embankment to
get it after getting [3]).

Climb up the rocky hillside to get behind the apartment complexes and in the
process get [4] which is on the edge. Once you get behind the complexes, go
forward until the next checkpoint is directly right of you then turn right
and head back to the beach in the process getting [5].

Checkpoint [6] is off to your left and right on the water's edge. This one is
tricky because of the fact that this particular part of the beach where the
checkpoint is at is steep. Get right up to it, tap Accelerate to go down, tap
Reverse to slow yourself, and when you get the checkpoint [6], hold Reverse
to go back up.

Go up the rocky embankment to get [7] then back down to the beach. Go under
the archway and along the left side of the embankment to get [8]. Then go
onto the grass and back down to the beach. Then turn left and go up the
embankment to get [9]. When getting [9], turn right and head for the grass.
Once on the grass, turn right and get [10].

After getting [10], turn around and head west. As you approach the rocky
embankment, you will see [11]. Climb up to get [11], turn left when you reach
the top and climb up to get [12], then turn right when you reach the top to
get [13]. Then turn left and go behind Salvatore's Mansion.

As you head behind the Mansion, you may see a checkpoint off to your left but
that will be the last one collected. Checkpoint [14] is on top of the arch
near the very end. Carefully go down and get it and back up the arch and onto
the grass then turn around. Approach [15] from the west and get a good speed
to get down to the ledge where it's at.

After getting [15], you will complete the "Patriot Playground" vehicle
mission and you will get a reward of $20,000.

| II.18. "Mafia Massacre" (Toyz Van)/"Diablo Destruction" (Toyz Van) [MFDS] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

In an alley west of Cipriani's Ristorante in St. Marks and next to the
building on the northeast side of Doorless Apartments (East) in Hepburn
Heights you may have noticed a blue van that had a logo on the side: Toyz in
the Hood. When you enter the van, you will trigger a Toyz Van Mission, either
"Mafia Massacre" (St. Marks) or "Diablo Destruction" (Hepburn Heights).

What you do is take remote controlled cars and try to blow up as many gang
vehicles as you can in two minutes. For these missions, you blow up the black
Mafia Sentinels ("Mafia Massacre") and the Diablo Stallions ("Diablo
Destruction").

There are a total of four Toyz vans in the game and each one will require you
to destroy different gang cars. There is one Toyz van on Staunton Island and
the last one is on Shoreside Vale.

When you finish these missions, you will be rewarded $1,000 times the number
of cars you managed to destroy. If you destroyed three cars, you will get
$3,000, if you destroyed eight cars, will get $8,000 and so on.

At this point I have done all I can do on Portland Island before starting the
Main Story Missions. But there is something else that can be done.....

 \=========================================================================/

Part of the fun of the GTA games is to try to get around the roadblocks and
invisible forcefields to get to areas you aren't supposed to go until the
designers want you to, preferably without cheating. These roadblocks and
forcefields were designed to keep you from getting more powerful weapons
early or to finish certain tasks before you were allowed to.

But, of course, there are ways to get around these obstacles.....

0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

On the GameFAQs GTA3 Message Board there is a sticky topic called "Purple
Nines Glitch, Darkel, Donald Love Dissaperance and more questions" started by
Huggable Joker Inc.

Inside the topic was a very good way to get to Staunton Island early and
without cheat codes:

0---------------------------------------------------------------------------0

"Getting to Shoreside Vale early without cheating.

(Q) I want to go to Staunton and Shoreside to get the packages/rampages/etc
    but Idont want to cheat. Is this possible?

(A) Yes. Go to Easy Credit Auto's in Portland and jack the Banshee there.
    When you leave, note the grass over behind the Car Crusher. Past this 
    grass is a long white road. Follow it untill your actually on top of the 
    Tunnel Entrance. BACK THE BANSHEE towards the water, the car should be 
    sitting on the very middle line in this area, it's not hard to see 
    really. When the rear wheels fall off the edge, the car will start to 
    fall, quickly hit Triangle before the car does so, and TADA! Your 
    actually ontop of the Porter Tunnel and can freely acess Staunton Island 
    without cheating. Once you get to Staunton, jack a car and drive to SSV 
    using the Tunnel, it wont be blocked off untill Staunton is unlocked by 
    beating all of Portlands missions."

0---------------------------------------------------------------------------0

Well I gave it a try and it works like a charm. You will be in Blue Hell but
on top of the tunnel. Jump over the top of the barrier (that keeps you from
entering the tunnel beneath you) and you can go to either Staunton Island or
Shoreside Vale.

If you decide to go to Staunton Island you will have to contend with
invisible barriers that will angle you off into Blue Hell (if you run along
the tunnel edges) but you can avoid them by running in the middle of the
tunnel top. If you are heading to Shoreside Vale, you can run along the edges
of the tunnel top.

Once at the end of the tunnel at either Staunton Island or Shoreside Vale,
jump into Blue Hell and you will land on the ground above with a loss of 5
Armor.

This works on both the PS2 and Xbox versions (NOTE: On the Xbox version use
the Y Button to exit the vehicle). And, thanks to readers M L and Bryan Ste.
Marie, it also works on the PC version.

Once you are back on land (either Staunton Island or Shoreside Vale), go to
one of your Safehouses and save your game. Unlike "Grand Theft Auto: Liberty
City Stories", the Safehouses in GTA3 are active and you can save your game
while on the other side.

| II.19.B. Hidden Packages CHT-H19 and FIA-H97                             \
0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

One of the Hidden Packages on Portland Island is at the Chinatown Subway
Entrance but you couldn't go into it because of the gate. Now that I am
outside of Portland Island, I can go and get it. There are no barriers to
prevent you from entering the subway at either Staunton Island or Shoreside
Vale since you are not really supposed to be here yet (as a result you can't
enter the subway train itself).

Get a small car, like a Stinger, and find the subway entrances. The entrances
are: Liberty Campus Subway Entrance, Bedford Point Subway Entrance, and
Francis International Airport Subway Entrance.

Drive down, make your way down the stairs, and to the subway platform. Go
onto the tracks heading east and stay on the left side of the tracks. After
awhile, you will end up in Chinatown and you will see the Chinatown subway
platform. Drive off of it and go up the stairs. When you reach the top the
following package is within reach:

[CHT-H19] - Near the Chinatown Subway Entrance bathrooms.

Now go back down and to the platform. Re-enter the tracks going north. Keep
going until you reach Shoreside Vale and the Francis International Airport
subway platform. Get off on the right side and as you near the stairs leading
up you will see a Hidden Package:

[FIA-H97] - Near the bottom of the stairs near the subway platform for the 
            Francis International Airport Subway Entrance.

If you are already on Shoreside Vale and enter through the Airport subway
entrance you can get FIA-H97 first before getting CHT-H19.

Once on the other side you can do just about everything. Below is the list of
activities you can do in the other two areas:

>>Shoreside Vale
  **************
    >>Collect 32 Hidden Packages.
    >>Do 7 Rampages.
    >>Do 8 Unique Stunt Jumps.
    >>Do "Rumpo Rampage".
    >>Do "Gripped!".
    >>Collect all but one of the cars for the Suburban Import Export Garage.
    >>Do the Firetruck Mission (first 20 fires extinguished).
    >>Do the Vigilante Mission (first 20 criminals killed).

>>Staunton Island
  ***************
    >>Collect 34 to 35 Hidden Packages.
    >>Do 7 Rampages.
    >>Do 4 Unique Stunt Jumps.
    >>Do "Casino Calamity".
    >>Do "A Ride In The Park".
    >>Do "Mulitstorey Mayhem".
    >>Do the Firetruck Mission (first 20 fires extinguished).
    >>Do the Vigilante Mission (first 20 criminals killed).

Plus there is the one Hidden Package on the rocks south of Portland Island
(PTL-H33).

And, of course, if you wish to do so, do the Taxi and Ambulance Missions
while on the other side.

With this glitch you can get up to 51% Completion, do all Jumps, do all
Rampages, get 99 to 100 Hidden Packages, and do all of the side-missions.
And, of course, unlock most, if not all, of the Weapon Icons for your
Safehouses. Plus earn a lot of money.

When it is time to start heading back to Portland Island you still have to
cross the Callahan Bridge but in the opposite direction. This leads me
to.....

| II.19.D. Hidden Package SSV-H75 and The Dodo                             \
0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

The best, and cheatless, way to go back to Portland Island is by using the
Dodo which is found at Francis International Airport at the west end of the
Main Runway. You still need the Dodo for the Industrial Import Export Garage
so you can kill two birds with one stone here.

The Dodo is unusual in that it is not a car but an airplane. However, it is a
clipped winged craft meaning that it does not have most of its wings. It can
be flown but it is a difficult thing to do. However, there are FAQs that will
help you be able to fly the Dodo for long periods of time.

Then there is also the matter of getting SSV-H75 which is on the raised part
of the broken drawbridge. Normally, you would have to wait until completion
of "A Drop In The Ocean" (Donald Love) so the drawbridge would be fixed. Then
get on the drawbridge, onto the median, and wait for it to rise so you can
get SSV-H75.

But is it possible to get SSV-H75 while the drawbridge is broken? Yes. It is
a little tricky but it is possible. It requires the use of the Dodo to reach
it. Those that are experts in flying the Dodo can probably get it with little
problem. But there is a way for those who can't fly the Dodo:

  >>Step One
    ********
    Get the Dodo, go to the intersection with the signal light (the one that 
    leads to the airport terminal), stop, and turn right.

  >>Step Two
    ********
    Rev up the Dodo (while holding the brake). Then let go of the brake and 
    go up the bridge while pushing up on the Left Analog Stick (pushing the 
    nose down). As you near the break, the nose of the plane should be 
    scraping the ground. When you get roughly two to three car lengths from 
    the drawbridge, yank the stick down. If you have enough speed, the plane 
    will go almost straight up and high enough to reach the drawbridge. You 
    won't fly very far but then you won't need to. Just enough to land on the 
    drawbridge. Once on the drawbridge, go near the Package, park very close, 
    and parallel, to the median.

  >>Step Three
    **********
    You can't jump onto the median from the road because it is too high and 
    you can't climb to the top of the Dodo either. But you can still use the 
    Dodo to get on the median. Go between the Dodo and the median. Then jump 
    onto the Dodo near the back wheels right by the rear windows. You should 
    be partway up the Dodo if you jumped onto it right. You can't jump onto 
    the rear of the plane but you don't have to. While on the Dodo, use the 
    Look Around (Right Analog Stick) to aim at the median. Then jump from 
    your position to the top of the median. Then go get the Package.

If you can't do this trick, don't worry, you can get the Package later. For
missions where I use the Rocket Launcher (in the early parts of the game), I
also have strategies for using different weapons. As for the Dodo, just drive
it into the tunnel to go to Staunton Island (because of its size you will be
switched into first person mode while driving in the tunnel).

If you managed to get the Package, get back into the Dodo and drop it onto
the Staunton Island side of the bridge.

Then make your way through Staunton Island and go to the Callahan Bridge. Go
up the bridge without slowing down and you should start to glide as the
bridge droops down. Gently pull back and you should land on your wheels on
the other side.

Then simply go around the roadblocks, deposit the Dodo in the Industrial
Import Export Garage, and save your game at your Safehouse.

Now, if you have trouble trying to get the Dodo up the bridge to get at the
Package then head back to Portland Island, it's okay to skip that and save it
for later.

To return to Portland Island without the use of the Dodo there is a Predator
Police boat on the south side of the Main Runway and a Speeder near the end
of the South Runway at Francis International Airport. These boats will allow
you to get back to Staunton Island.

Once back on Staunton Island then head to The Condos and grab any boat from
the two piers there to return to Portland Island.

Luigi runs the Sex Club 7 in Red Light District. He works for the Mafia and 
uses his club as a front for his prostitution operation. You have already met 
him and done one mission on his behalf, "Luigi's Girls".

His missions are very easy since these are meant for newbies to get
acquainted with Liberty City and with Portland Island in particular.

There are a total of five missions, technically four since you have already 
done one, and they can be done quickly. He is represented by the "L" icon not 
far from your Safehouse.

      wiseguy's been introducing this trash to my girls down Portland Harbor. 
      Go and introduce a bat to his face! Then take his car, respray it. I

  mission if you run them over.

  Exit your car and get into the pusher's car. Go to the Pay 'N' Spray to get 
  it repainted then follow the blip to Luigi's garage and park it to finish

  Got a useful route for using the Coach by Scotty Boutin.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0===========0

  You have five minutes to get a minimum of four girls to the Ball and there 
  are a total of eight girls on Portland Island. You fail the mission if you 
  run any of them over or get less than four girls to the Ball.

  Start off by going north into Hepburn Heights and get one of the girls by 
  the bridge then go to the Harwood Junkyard entrance to get another then 
  pick up one near Cipriani's Ristorante in St. Marks. Since the Taxi can 
  only hold three girls, go the the Ball and drop off the girls.

  From the ball go to the northeast part of Chinatown to pick up your next 
  girl then go back to St. Marks to get the one just underneath the elevated 
  train tracks then the one by the Portland Harbor entrance. Then go back to 
  the Ball to drop them off.

  From the Ball go get the girl near Liberty City Sawmills then go into 
  Chinatown and get the one by Chinatown Plaza. Then go and drop them off at 
  the Ball to complete the mission.

  Then there is this route, using the Coach, by Scotty Boutin:

     "Park the bus facing north next to Luigi's club before you start the 
      mission (Trust me, you do NOT want to have to turn this bus around, 
      especially in crowded streets).

      Get in the bus and go north until you find the first girl (#1), who 
      should be on the right side of the bridge. After that, make a wide 
      right turn (ignore the road, turns are a hassle for this monstrosity) 
      and pass under the tunnel. You should notice another girl down near the 
      car crusher. Go ahead and leap off the ledge with the bus (you should 
      stay straight) and turn right onto the path, letting the girl (#2) get 
      in your bus). After a nice slow ride up the dirt hill (damn hills), 
      keep going straight until you reach Toni's house, where you should make 
      a left and pick up your next girl (#3) on your left.

      Make your way up the hill (damn hills. Can they BE any slower?) and 
      turn right. Follow the road until the fourth girl is on your left. Pick 
      her up (#4) and continue down the road all the way to the fifth girl on 
      your right (#5). Make a left turn and continue until you reach the 
      China building (marked by the big R* billboard on top). Make another 
      left and hug the left side of the road until the alcove, where you will 
      see girl #6. Pick her up and bear right through the grass and bear due 
      west on the wide sidewalk so that the hedges are on your right. After 
      that, cross the road and bear left into the trees. Don't go too fast, 
      and try to stay as parallel as possible with the road to your right 
      (use your radar) so that you do not run into the Mean Street Taxi Cabs 
      wall.

      Once you start going uphill, bear right and eventually make it onto the 
      road (This is the road that overlooks the SupaSave and leads to the 
      Portland docks) and pick up the girl standing next to the Portland 
      Docks sign (to your left). (#7). As the road bears right, cut across 
      the grass onto the road that borders the Atlantic Quays (also the road 
      that leads to the bus depot where you probably picked this monstrosity 
      up) and make a right at the Liberty City Sawmills. The final girl (#8) 
      should be on your right. Almost there! Now all that is left is to make 
      a left at the end of the road and a quick right (you'll make this right 
      at the Callahan Bridge, marked by the blockades which wouldnt allow you 
      to go across it anyway). Make a left into the old school hall (You can 
      cut across the shrubs) and stop at the marker. Congratulations!"

  $4,000 plus an additional $2,000 for getting all eight girls to the Ball.

Marty Chonks owns the Bitch'N' Dog Food Factory and he seems to have all
kinds of money trouble. He has four missions total and you can pick them up
between 09:00 and 19:00 hours every day.

His missions are very easy and comprise of mainly taking one of his cheap
cars, picking up someone, taking that person back to the factory, and
disposing with the evidence.

If you're good enough and start the first mission at exactly 09:00 you can
get the last mission started before 19:00 hours.

Since the missions are very easy, I will group them all here instead of 
breaking them down:

  Take the Perennial, pick up the bank manager (who has been ripping off 
  Marty) at the Bank of Liberty in Chinatown and take him back to the 
  factory.

  Then take the Perennial to the car crusher at the Harwood Junkyard and earn 
  $1,000 for completing the mission.

  Take the Sentinel, pick up the thieves (who have been threatening to tell 
  the insurance company on Marty who hired them to break into his apartment 
  for insurance fraud) at their turf in Chinatown and take them back to the 
  factory.

  Then take the Sentinel to the Pay 'N' Spray in Red Light District and take 
  it back to the factory and earn $3,000 for completing the mission.

0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

  Take the Esperanto, pick up the wife (who has a nice insurance policy) at 
  Classic Nails in Red Light District, and take her back to the factory.

  You have to dispose of the car in the sea and the best place to do it is at 
  Portland Beach east of the SupaSave! Store right where the docks meet the 
  beach.

  Go partway down to the water and then get out. Gravity will then pull the 
  car into the sea and you will earn $2,000 for completing the mission.

  Take the Stallion, pick up the guy (who was seeing Marty's wife before she

  You will need to pick up this mission between 05:00 and 21:00 hours. When 
  you do, you have six minutes to complete this operation but this mission 
  isn't too hard.

  Go up to Marco's Bistro and grab Mike's car then take it to 8-Ball's 
  BombShop in Harwood. Then take it back to Marco's Bistro, park it, press 
  Attack to arm the bomb, and exit the car (make sure you close the door or 
  you will fail the mission).

  Now go to the sidewalk and watch the show. If you smash up the car while 
  taking it to or from the shop, you will have to go to the Pay 'N' Spray to

  Mr. Chong runs a noodle stand in the middle of the Chinatown Plaza and has 
  three guards nearby. He also has a couple of Perennials parked at two of 
  the exits of the Plaza.

  But, thanks to Llwyd Campbell, this mission becomes super easy. Go to the 
  south entrance of Chinatown Plaza but don't enter. Notice the small posts 
  that mark the entrance of the Plaza. Go to the second post from the left 
  and look directly north toward Mr. Chong's stand.

  Then hurl a single Grenade at the stand which, when it explodes, will kill 
  Mr. Chong and the nearby Triads to successfully complete the mission.

  Joey wants you to hit the payroll van that is cruising through Chinatown.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0===========0

  Take the Firetruck, find the red blip, and hit the Securicar. The large 
  Firetruck will allow you to chase away the security guards in about three 
  hits. You will also attract the attention of the Cops and get a 2-Star 
  Wanted Rating in the process.

  Once you get the Securicar, take it to the Pay 'N' Spray to get rid of the 
  Wanted Rating. Then start roaming around Portland Island. Why? To get the 
  game to spawn Securicars for the Industrial Import Export Garage. The 
  Securicar is easily the hardest vehicle to get because it rarely spawns.

  However, the game needs to spawn at least one Securicar for this mission. 
  The Securicar you are riding, the payroll van, is a special one so it will 
  not disappear on you when you take another car.

  Whatever car you are driving at any time is placed into an array of some 
  sort so while you are driving around you will see a lot of the same car you 
  are currently driving. Since you are driving a Securicar for this mission, 
  you will see more Securicars driving the street so you will be able to get 
  one for the Industrial Import Export Garage.

  After a few minutes, another Securicar should appear so get out and take 
  it. Drive it to the Industrial Import Export Garage then go back and get 
  the payroll van Securicar you left behind. Then take the payroll van to the 
  dropoff point in Portland Docks to complete the mission.

  Joey introduces Claude to the Don's Capo, Toni Cipriani.....

     "Here's the guy I was telling you about. Alright listen, this guy ain't 
      Italian and he's no mechanic but he can get things fixed." 

  Claude is to take Toni to Cipriani's Ristorante in St. Marks. And as Claude 
  leaves, Joey informs him.....

     "Now listen to me, I'm planning a job that needs a good driver so drop 
      by sometime later Ok?"

  As you exit the garage, Toni informs you that he wants to go Mr. Wong's 
  Launderette in Chinatown before you drop him off at the restaurant. He 
  needs to collect some overdue protection money.

  After Toni enters the launderette, he is ambushed by the Triads and you 
  have to get both of yourselves out of there pronto. Zip north then make 
  your way to the restaurant to end the mission.

  However, according to Dan Stephen, if you stick around and kill the four 
  Triad ambushers (two inside and two outside) you will get a $2,000 bonus.

  And you open Toni's set of missions but I will finish Joey's missions and 
  then El Burro's missions before I do Toni Cipriani's.

  District Ammu-Nation:

  One of the Forelli brothers thought he was a wise guy so he got whacked by

  John Nowakowski had this to add about this mission:

     "I just passed Dead Skunk in a Trunk mission really easily. From the 
      roof of the diner I threw a molotov at the Forelli car in the parking 
      lot. It didn't destroy the car, but both Forelli cars went nuts and 
      started crashing into the diner itself until they exploded. I just 
      waited on the roof until they were dead and took the car to the 
      crusher. It is kind of cheap, but it worked!"

0=========0
| The Plan \
0===========0

  When you get to Greasy Joe's Diner, you will see a gray Manana which you 
  will need to take to the car crusher. If you scope your surroundings, you 
  will see a car with its lights on in the east side of the parking lot.

  It seems that the Forelli's are planning an ambush and one of the two cars 
  involved in the ambush is parked here. The other one is parked just 
  underneath the bridge by the tunnel.

  There are a couple of ways to do this depending on your style:

  Outwit Them
  ***********
  For those who like the thrill of the chase, just take the Manana and have 
  fun outwitting them by going into narrow alleys and outmaneuvering them on 
  the way to the car crusher.

  Ambush The Ambushers
  ********************
  With the Firetruck, go through Chinatown, down the main road heading under 
  Callahan Bridge, and smack the first car into the tunnel. Usually you will 
  either flip the car over or get it stuck along the wall. The second car 
  will then give chase and ram into the Firetruck. The Firetruck is pretty 
  tough so you can just drive-by the second car, while it is backing up and 
  ramming you again and again, it until it explodes.

  Once you destroy the second car, get into the Manana and drive to the car 
  crusher uncontested to complete the mission.

  If you have the Rocket Launcher then you can just climb on top of Greasy

  Vanatorul DeVise for that idea.

  According to John Willoughby you can still complete this mission if the

0===========0

  First off you need to pick this mission up between 06:00 and 14:00 hours. 
  Try to get there just before 06:00 to give you maximum time to do the 
  mission.

  Take your car and go to the safehouse to pick the robbers up. Go to the 
  Bank of Liberty in Chinatown and park the car pointing north toward the 
  Chinatown Shortcut.

  After they rob the bank, you will have a 3-Star Wanted Rating. Go through 
  the Chinatown Shortcut (the Police Bribe there will knock off one star) and 
  to the Pay 'N' Spray to get rid of the rest of the Wanted Rating.

  From there go to the safehouse to drop the robbers off and complete the 
  mission.

Toni Cipriani is the Don's main enforcer and collector. He seems to be a
pretty tough character until you see how he behaves around his mother.

His main beef is with the Triads that run Chinatown and most of his work for
Claude involves making trouble with them. He has five missions total and can
be picked up at the "T" at Cipriani's Ristorante in St. Marks.

  Made some tweaks and got a suggestion from Robyn Pearson.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0===========0

  If you thought about blowing up the cars at the starting line like you 
  could in Vice City, forget about it. The cars are indestructible no matter 
  what weapon you use. You must race them.

  But what car to use? A Mafia Sentinel? Nope. A Taxi? Nope. A Banshee? Nope. 
  In my opinion, the best vehicle to use is actually a Firetruck. A 
  Firetruck? Yes, a Firetruck.

  Now, the Firetruck has lousy starting acceleration but once you get it up 
  to speed, it is very fast. Also durable and, as you may have found out 
  doing the Firefighter mission, hitting a car will send it flying because of 
  all of that mass you are driving.

  Go to Harwood and get a Firetruck from the Fire Station. Go to the main 
  road to the west of the Fire Station and head into Chinatown through the 
  Chinatown Shortcut gaining speed as you go. As you near the three cars at 
  the starting line, aim for and hit the middle car at full speed.

  When you do that the race will automatically start. This will temporarily 
  disorient one of the cars as you blast through the starting line like a bat 
  out of hell. It will also take a few seconds for the other two cars to get 
  up to speed so you can get a head start on them.

  The toughest part is going from the starting line, through Trenton, and 
  turning right heading by Atlantic Quays. After that it seems to get easier 
  since you can get a lot of speed going from Atlantic Quays, through 
  Callahan Point, to Chinatown. Be careful when power-sliding. Because of the 
  Firetruck's mass, you can easily slide yourself out of contention if you're 
  not careful.

  If they try to pass you during the race, just smack them off to the side. 
  If they pass you, you may be able to hit them when they try to turn corners 
  since they are very lousy in their driving.

  And, according to Robyn Pearson, if you use the siren then this will make 
  the regular cars on the road either stop or get out of the way which can 
  make it easier to navigate the course.

  There are a total of 18 checkpoints in the race and the last one is near 
  where you started. Winning the race will successfully complete the mission.

  The bomb you need is sitting by Borgnine Taxis (and behind the Borgnine 
  Taxi if you unlocked it). Grab it, then grab a car (or the Borgnine Taxi) 
  and find the red blip which is the ice cream van. The van is usually 
  roaming around St. Marks.

  Find the van, jack the van, and head to Atlantic Quays. When you get there, 
  park it in the blue circle, press Horn to start the music, and wait (do NOT 
  exit the van.

  The gang members will slowly head toward the van and when they get near the 
  Mr. Whoopee van, drive-by them complete the mission.

  More than likely you might not have acquired the Mr. Whoopee for the 
  Industrial Import Export Garage prior to this mission so this assignment 
  will make it easy to get one. Drive-bying the gangsters instead of blowing 
  up the van will allow you to just drive the van, after the mission, to the 
  Industrial Import Export Garage for deposit.

  The "throbbing weapon", a Flame-Thrower, is located at the Rockstar 
  building near where R5-A was. Once you grab the weapon, you have two and a 
  half minutes to kill 25 Triads. 

  Basically, this mission is like a Rampage except that there are civilians 
  present. Care must be taken not to torch too many civilians otherwise you 
  will attract the attention of the Cops and that is bad since you can't 
  outrun them because of the heavy Flame-Thrower and torching them will only 
  make matters worse.

  Head towards Chinatown Park taking out Triads as you go. The park usually 
  generates a lot of Triads simplifying your task. When you finish killing 25 
  Triads, you will successfully complete the mission.

  After this mission, the Triads will become hostile to you so if you go 
  through Chinatown, they will try to yank you from your car and hurt you.

  Glen T. Winstein pointed out a shortcut that can be used here. In addition, 
  another reader, Kevin Berg, had an idea to increase the amount of time you 
  have for the mission:

     "I recently read your FAQ and was quite impressed with the detail. I 
      would like to submit a strategy for the mission "Big 'N' Veiny". I 
      found that this helped me to beat the mission in a bit easier way. You 
      receive the mission from the phone, and then before you get in the 
      Rumpo, you run behind and sprint into the back bumper. This will push 
      the Rumpo forward and you can effectivly push the van quite a ways to 
      get a bit of a head start. I thought that this might be helpful."

  It is indeed helpful and this idea made its way into the guide.

  But somebody else, Demarest, took this idea one step further (info provided 
  by Glen T. Winstein):

     "I just saw this gimmick by Demarest at GTA Forums and thought you might
      like it. It reminds me of the one you have of Claude pushing the van
      before starting the mission for a head start for "Big 'n' Veiny," but 
      he has Claude push it E to the grass then S past Greasy Joe's (to avoid
      gangsters) and all the way to the end of the run. He has Claude get in,
      get out, and shoot the guy."

  This method is recommended if you have some time to kill since it takes 
  awhile to push the van where it needs to go.

  I should also point out that you cannot go ahead and kill the thief before 
  you enter the van. He will not appear until you enter the van.

  However, another reader, Erick, suggested that you don't need to push the 
  van all the way to the end. He found that you can push the van east all the 
  way to the walkway on the east side of Portland Island then push it north 
  until you are near Greasy Joe's Diner. The main problem is the hostile 
  Triads that may accost you.

  What I did in trying out his suggestion is simply kill the Triads when they 
  approach and continue pushing the van until I got near the Callahan Bridge 
  then got into the van. From here you only need to do the last part of the 
  trail to the thief and do so with plenty of time.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0===========0

  As Kevin pointed out, go behind the Rumpo and push it forward along the  
  sidewalk. It is actually best to angle the van into the street otherwise 
  pedestrians will block your way.

  On the sidewalk along the right side of the street you will find gratings. 
  First, there is a group of two sets of gratings (a set has three panels). 
  When you reach the third set of gratings, stop pushing the van and enter 
  it.

  By getting the van close to the first set of magazines you will gain 
  several seconds of extra time which will help you a lot regardless of 
  whatever path, listed below, you want to take.

  There are two ways that this mission can be done: by following the assigned 
  path or by taking a shortcut to Portland Harbor.

  The Assigned Path
  *****************
  Get into the van provided and collect the dropped magazines. You have 20 
  seconds to start and you are given two seconds for each bundle picked up. 
  The path winds through St. Marks, Chinatown, Callahan Point, Atlantic 
  Quays, and finally Portland Harbor. This mission is difficult because of 
  the unstable van and the traffic which keeps you from gaining substantial 
  time.

  Keep a moderate speed and you should be able to keep the van steady enough, 
  and fast enough, to hit the mags. The turn heading toward the park in 
  Chinatown is one that may trip you up.

  Getting the Rumpo close to the first set of magazines will help you a lot 
  here.

  The St. Marks Shortcut
  **********************
  As Glen pointed out, there is a shortcut that can be used. However, as I am 
  about to point out, it is not that much easier than the Assigned Path but 
  if you are having difficulty doing it that way then this may be a viable 
  option.

  Follow the path leading up through St. Marks and to Marco's Bistro. Then 
  keep going straight, aim for the bush left of the tree, jump off the hill, 
  and towards Portland Harbor.

  But some things need to go right. First, you should have about 18-20 
  seconds on the clock when you reach Marco's Bistro. That means that you 
  have to have a very good run leading up to that point. That also means you 
  can't hit any cars along the way.

  Second, after you jump off the hill, you have to land on your wheels. On 
  most of my attempts the van would smack the fence and just flip upside down 
  regardless of how solid my approach was. Frustrating. The Rumpo is a lousy 
  vehicle and always wants to flip over at the slightest provocation.

  If you manage to stay on your wheels, then you have to go through the gap 
  on the left side of the fence which is made tricky by the fact that the van 
  doesn't go into there very well. If you manage to make it through, you can 
  get to the last of the magazines with about 1-3 seconds to spare. Follow 
  them to the end of the line. 

  Because of these factors it may take you several tries before you succeed 
  with this method.

  When you finally reach the thief, regardless of method, just hit him with 
  your van then drive to XXX Mags in Red Light District to complete the 
  mission.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=========0

  $20,000.

  And this will complete all of El Burro's missions.

  However, the phone will still ring and there will still be a blue mission 
  circle. Going into the blue mission circle will allow you to do the mission 
  "Turismo" again. This is so you can try to improve your time in the race. 
  But later on in the game, it will be very difficult to do "Turismo" so it 
  may be wise to try to get your best times now.

  Despite the now hostile Triads, this is not a hard mission to do.

  Go to Chinatown in the alleyway behind Mr. Wong's Launderette to pick up 
  the money. When you do, several Triads show up at all three entrances to 
  ambush you. There are six Triads total, five on foot and one in a laundry 
  van. You have to kill all of them before you are allowed to deliver the 
  money.

  The very first thing you should do is to run toward the laundry van without 
  fighting the others. Jack it and start running over or drive-bying the 
  other Triads. If you do this right, you should be able to do this mission 
  without so much as a scratch.

  Once you kill the last Triad, take the money to Toni to complete the 
  mission.

     "Don Salvatore has called a meeting. I need you to collect the Limo and 
      his boy, Joey, from the garage. Then get Luigi from his club, come back 
      here and pick me up, then we'll all drive over to the boss's place

  Go to Joey's Auto Painting in Trenton to pick up the limo and Joey. 
  Carefully drive to Luigi's Sex 7 Club in Red Light District to pick up 
  Luigi. Then go to St. Marks to pick up Toni at his restaurant but make sure 
  that the limo is pointed north (the restaurant should be to your right).

  When Toni climbs in, you are ambushed by the Triads. Take the first right 
  and head up the hill. The limo is slow going up but at the top is the 
  entrance to Salvatore's Mansion.

  However, the Triads have blocked it with a couple of laundry vans. Hit the 
  gap between the two vans and make your way to the Mansion. Once past the 
  gate, the Triads will not follow. Park the limo in the garage and from 
  there you will meet Salvatore.....

  Glen T. Winstein gave me a little suggestion that helps near the end of the  
  mission.

  And a new idea from Armin C. Vucsina.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0===========0

  There are three Warlords to take down. One is in the Chinatown Plaza, 
  another is by Raffles Fish Factory, and the last one is at the Turtle Head 
  Fishing Co. in Callahan Point.

  As you enter Chinatown, a Police radio dispatch will announce that there is 
  a gang war going on in Chinatown. You will see Mafia men fighting it out 
  with the Triads. Chinatown has become a war zone so care must be taken 
  while in this section of Portland Island.

  Drive to the Plaza entrance by Punk Noodles, get out, and run into the 
  Plaza to confront and kill the first Warlord with the Uz-I.

  Then get back in your car and drive to Raffles Fish Market and run over the 
  second Warlord.

  Next, find a Triad Fish Van, jack it, and then drive over to the Turtle 
  Head Fishing Co. After the Triads let you in go over to to where the third 
  Warlord is and drive-by him to complete the mission.

  Or you could do what TerryT did and that is use a vehicle and jump into the 
  compound using the hill near the west side of the compound. For best 
  results you should get the Banshee from Capital Autos and start from the 
  clearing where you can find a Helth Icon. Once you jump the wall you will 
  either hit and kill the Warlord or put youself into position to drive-by 
  him.

  Another option, by Armin C. Vucsina, is to just stand outside the wall and 
  throw Grenades over it to kill the Warlord.

  If you earned the Sniper Rifle Weapon Icon you can make your life a bit 
  easier with this weapon.

  Use it on the first warlord and, after running over the second warlord, 
  drive over to the west side of the Turtle Head Fishing Co.

  There is a hill there which you can get on top and just snipe the third 
  warlord from outside the wall to complete the mission (this was Glen's 
  idea).

  Another suggestion, by Ian Spears, is to get to the closest point to the 
  third warlord (while still outside the wall) and use the Flame-Thrower to 
  shoot through the wall and kill him.

      on a timer so if you mess up there'll be no evidence. Go and pick up 
      the dustcart. Careful, 8-ball says it's real sensitive and the 
      slightest bump could set that thing off! Their fish factory will open 
      its gates for a dustcart, so you can drive right in. Park up between 
      the gas canisters and get the hell out of there! I want it to rain

  Normally, when you get to the club you will see a Taxi there meant for 
  Curly Bob. When he gets in the taxi, you are supposed to stay your distance 
  while following Curly Bob, by means of a Spookmeter, otherwise you will 
  fail the mission if you got too close. By the way, you can't jack this 
  particular Taxi which is why you have to provide your own.

  But you can simplify your mission tremendously by taking your Taxi and 
  parking it behind the other Taxi making sure that your Taxi is nearest to 
  the service tunnel and that you are parked in the street (if you park on 
  the sidewalk Curly Bob will ignore your Taxi).

  When Curly Bob shows up, he will enter your Taxi instead of the one in 
  front and all you have to do is drive him to Portland Harbor. No spooking 
  to worry about.

  When you get to Portland Harbor, park in the blue circle. The following 
  cutscene confirms Salvatore's suspicions. When the cutscene ends, take your 
  Taxi and run over Curly Bob (be careful - he has a Shotgun) to end the 
  mission.

  I had a few readers complaining about this mission. So I played around with 
  it for some time and I came up with an interesting way to make this mission 
  easier.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0===========0

  When you get to 8-Ball's BombShop, he informs you that he needs $100,000 
  to cover expenses. At this point you should have close to that amount. If 
  not you can do additional Taxi, Vigilante, and Firefighter runs to earn 
  more money. Once you have the minimum amount, step into the blue circle 
  again.

  From this point there are two methods for completing this mission:

  The Standard Method
  *******************
  Go to Portland Harbor and park in the blue circle. As 8-Ball gets ionto 
  position, go up the stairs to the top of the building north and across from 
  the ship. You need to use the Sniper Rifle to take down all of the 
  Columbian guards on the ship so 8-Ball can get inside. 8-Ball won't go 
  until you start shooting so you can scope things out. Start with the 
  leftmost guard and work your way right.

  According to Jon Porter, you can make things easier for yourself if you use 
  the Adrenaline Icon in the middle of the group of small trailers on the 
  west side of the building. This will slow things down for you.

  Another reader, Jim Plate, also suggested to me that you can block the 
  entrance of the ramp with another car to slow down 8-Ball so you can gain 
  additional time to kill the Columbians. However, the Columbians will shoot 
  at you and you will take damage as you flee toward your vantage point.

  Once you kill the last guard, 8-Ball will get inside and you can watch his 
  brand of fireworks to complete the mission.

  The Lure Method
  ***************
  This method requires some patience to pull off but if you are having 
  trouble completing this mission then this will make things easier.

  This method involves luring some of the Columbian guards away from the ship 
  prior to dropping off 8-Ball in the blue circle at Portland Harbor. The 
  important thing to note is that you CANNOT let any Columbian guards die 
  before you drop off 8-Ball. If you do then the remaining guards are alerted 
  and you will fail the mission.

  A good solid car, like a Taxi, will work fine but a tougher vehicle is 
  recommended.

  Before starting part two of this mission place your car close to the 
  underground tunnel the goes under St. Marks. When you get 8-Ball, switch to 
  a weapon you can run with and run as fast as you can to your parked car. 
  Then get in WITHOUT 8-Ball and speed off into the tunnel.

  The game will complain that you have left 8-Ball behind. That's okay. This 
  will keep 8-Ball safe from harm as you do the next part of this method. 
  This will also keep you from accidentially dropping him off in the blue 
  circle or killing him if Bad Things happen while luring the guards away.

  When you get to Portland Harbor, go to the blue circle. Because you do not 
  have 8-Ball nothing will happen. Turn your car towards the Columbian guards 
  and slowly move towards them.

  The moment the pair by the Cartel Cruisers start firing, quickly back the 
  car away from them in a straight line all the way to the small crane. When 
  you get to the small crane, stop and angle your car southwest and toward 
  the Garage Building.

  Now these two Columbian guards will start chasing you on foot. Every so 
  often they will shoot at you with their AK-47s. The thing here is to keep 
  enough distance from them so they don't shoot at you and if they do they 
  either don't hit you or inflict little damage. I should also point out 
  that, even though this method is time consuming, these guys actually run 
  pretty fast.

  Keep an eye on the two Columbian guards you lured away. Once they get into 
  the blue circle, quickly speed forward and go onto the main path leading 
  out of Portland Harbor. Use Look Behind to make sure that the guards don't 
  get stuck in the pillars in front of the Garage Building. If they do then 
  move backwards to get them unstuck.

  Once they are clear of the pillars, exit Portland Harbor, go across the 
  street and park near the crates, point north, and use drive-by (right) to 
  keep an eye on the Columbian guards.

  When they get into the street, head north (but get onto the sidewalk on the 
  right side of the street) and stop at the small dirt ramp near SupaSave!. 
  Turn your car so that you are facing slightly southwest and toward Mean 
  Street Taxis.

  When the Columbians get past the wall (for the alley that leads to Mean 
  Street Taxis) head forward again, go across the street onto the grass and 
  stop at the northwest corner of the wall for the parking lot for Mean 
  Street Taxis.

  What you want them to do is to climb the short wall on the east side of the 
  Mean Street Taxis area then drop down into the area itself. When they do 
  that then they are trapped there and will no longer be a problem. You may 
  have to move your vehicle a little bit to lure them into the area.

  Once you have trapped these two guards go straight east along the outside 
  wall and back to the street where you came from then get 8-Ball, head back 
  to Portland Harbor, drop him off in the blue circle, and get into position 
  to kill the remaining Columbians.

  This should be enough to make it easier because you have two fewer guards 
  to deal with and all you need to do is make a straight left to right run 
  with the Sniper Rifle.

  However, I should point out, is that you can also lure the two guards at 
  the top of the ramp as well (purely optional). To do this you have to have 
  lured the first two guards away.

  Then go partway up the ramp with a NEW car (since you will get it shot up a 
  bit) which will cause the two guards at the top of the ramp to notice you. 
  After that then quickly back away in a straight line all the way to the 
  small crane. This will allow them to come down the ramp.

  Once these two guards are safely away from the ramp then you do exactly the 
  same thing you did with the previous two which is luring them to Mean 
  Street Taxis. Once this is done and you return to Portland Harbor with 
  8-Ball you have FOUR less guards to deal with.

  Another bonus to luring the extra guards away is that, after you drop off 
  8-Ball, you can block off the entrance of the ramp with your vehicle 
  without the other Columbians shooting at you and causing 8-Ball to move 
  forward before you have a chance to get into shooting position.

  I should point out that the game has a failsafe that allows 8-Ball to 
  teleport around any obstacle blocking the ramp but it takes awhile for that 
  to activate so this will buy some additional time when you start shooting. 
  A nice bonus is that you don't have to leave your position to move the 
  obstacle for 8-Ball. He'll just teleport around it.

  0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

  If you managed to get all 100 Hidden Packages to acquire the Rocket 
  Launcher Weapon Icon for your hideouts you can make things easier still.

  Instead of the Sniper Rifle use the Rocket Launcher. Start at the bottom of 
  the ramp and make your way from left to right. If you are fast enough you 
  can clear the ship of Columbians before 8-Ball can make his way up to the 
  deck.

  In addition, by going to the other side early, you should have a lot more 
  money when you start this mission thus simplifying things further.

  Go to the blip near Luigi's club. As you near the blip, you receive a 
  message on your pager from Maria. The car is actually a trap meant for 
  Claude and Maria wants you to meet her at the slip on the south side of the 
  Callahan Bridge.

  Once you get there, Maria is near hysterics.....

     "Listen, Salvatore thinks that we're going behind his back, so he was 
      offering you to the Cartel in order to make a deal. I couldn't let him 
      do that, I mean the worst thing is, it's all my fault...because I told 
      him, we were an item. Don't ask me why, I don't know. Look you're a 
      marked man on Mafia turf and I've got to get out of here too. I've seen 
      too much killing. Too much blood!"

  Jeez, after all of that work and now it's shot to shit. But Maria 
  introduces Claude to an old friend of hers, Asuka. Asuka recommends that 
  they get out of there before the Mafia finds out. Take the boat and drive 
  it to the blue marker to end the mission. And Asuka leaves you with a few 
  words.....

     "You'll need a place to lie low. There's a warehouse at the edge of 
      Belleville that should suit your needs. Come back here to my Condo when 
      you are ready, and we can have a little chat."

  After the mission is completed, head to your new Safehouse on Staunton 
  Island and save your game.

  This will complete Salvatore Leone's missions and open up Asuka Kasen's set 
  of missions.

  When you enter a car, you will listen to a special news report. The 
  Callahan Bridge has finally been repaired so you can now travel by car back 
  to Portland Island. This will also open a section of the Porter Tunnel 
  between Staunton Island and Portland Island.

  With these new roads open it is time to go over.....

This is the main business area for Liberty City. A lot of large businesses,
like AMCO Petroleum, are based out of here. Most of the businesses are
located in the Torrington and Bedford Point districts. A large park can be
found in, appropriately named, Belleville Park.

There are also some expensive condominiums to the east. Aspatria is home to
Liberty Memorial Coliseum. Staunton Island is also home to Liberty Campus,
the major college in this region. Fort Staunton, destroyed in a massive

                       intersection at the northwest part of the parking lot. 
                       There you can get the rest of the cars you need to 
                       complete the Rampage. When the Police cars start 
                       coming, this will make things a little easier since 
                       they will converge on you and won't try to speed away 
                       when you shoot at them unlike the other cars. The 
                       Police Helicopter also counts as a vehicle so destroy 
                       it if you can. If you start a chain reaction of 
                       explosions, all the exploding cars count even if you 
                       didn't shoot directly at them.

                       Icon's position. Go to the opening east of the Icon's 
                       position and shoot up the cars, and any Columbian that 
                       shoots at you, that appear on the road. Stay behind 
                       the fence, this will keep the pedestrians from taking 
                       whacks at you. The game should produce enough cars to 
                       complete the Rampage.

                        will chase and attack it making it harder to get your

 \=========================================================================/

Listed below are the four Unique Stunt Jumps for Staunton Island:

 /XXXXXXXXXXXXX\
0===============0
| Newport (NPT) |
0===============0
 \XXXXXXXXXXXXX/

[NPT-J9] - The ramp at the top of the Multistory Carpark (southwest end).
           Heading: North to South.
           Notes: You will need to move the car that is usually parked in the 
                  pathway so you can get enough speed to make the jump.

[NPT-J10] - Directly underneath the west end of Callahan Bridge at the 
            Industrial Park in Newport (use the gravel pile to jump across).
            Heading: North to South.
            Notes: Try not to go too fast otherwise you may bounce off the 
                   other end of the landing area and into the water.

[NPT-J11] - On the median of the Newport Bridge east of Lips 106 (between the 
            billboards).
            Heading: North to South.
            Notes: You have to drive into Fort Staunton and go south on 
                   Newport Bridge. When you reach the top of the bridge, you 
                   need to get on the median of the bridge. There is a small 
                   ramp that will allow you to get on the median. Zip 
                   straight ahead and be careful of the trees, they can mess 
                   up your approach if you're not careful. You don't have to 
                   clear the bridge to get the game to recognize the Jump. 
                   Just smacking into the wall on the other side will 
                   suffice.

 /XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\

| Bedford Point (BDT) |
0=====================0
 \XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/

[BDT-J12] - Through the Tw@ Internet Cafe and up the stairs.
            Heading: East to West.
            Notes: Start from the corner in the east and align yourself with 
                   the ramp when you approach the street.

| IV.6. "A Ride In The Park"                                         [RIPR] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Go into the Main Park in Belleville Park and near the north end by the 
basketball courts is a Landstalker. Entering it will trigger the vehicle 
mission "A Ride In The Park". Here you have two minutes to collect 12 
checkpoints and you are given 10 seconds for each one you get.

When you start, you will see a checkpoint off to your left [1]. Go to the set 
of tracks on the other side of the building and line yourself with the
platform the checkpoint is on. Carefully get on the platform and then collect
the checkpoint. Then rush to the wall on the west side of the park and head
south scraping the right side of the Landstalker against the wall in the
process.

Ahead of you is a cluster of three checkpoints [2,3,4]. Get the first one
ahead of you [2] then angle slightly left to get [3]. Stop and let the
vehicle settle against the wall then back up to get [4]. Go south to the end
of the park and collect [5] then head back north to the small bridge and
approach from the west side.

Here there are a cluster of three checkpoints [6,7,8]. Get the one on the
west incline [6], then the one under the bridge [7], then line yourself with
the next checkpoint and climb up the incline get it [8].

From there head northeast to the obelisk and get the checkpoint on the
outside edge of it [9] then go up the stairs and get [10]. Back straight out
and get the checkpoint at the toilet block [11].

Move forward and head north to the lake. The last checkpoint is on the island
and you will see an incline on the east side of the island. Climb it to
acquire the last checkpoint [12] and complete the "A Ride In The Park"
vehicle mission and get $30,000 for your efforts.

| IV.7. "Multistorey Mayhem"                                         [MLYM] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

This particular vehicle mission takes place within the confines of the
Multistory Carpark in Newport. The setup is a little unusual in that you have
to take a Stallion, stop just outside of one of the entrances, get out then
get back in again. There is usually one parked just inside the south entrance
of the Carpark. Get it, go out the south entrance, turn around so you are
just outside the south entrance, get out then get in again.

When you start you have two minutes to get twenty checkpoints. Unlike the
other vehicle missions the timer starts when the mission does and you have
twenty seconds to start plus five seconds for each checkpoint nabbed.

The first four are on the ground level. [1] is just ahead of you then turn
left until you see [2] which is between the entrances (a commonly missed
checkpoint) then turn right until you see [3] then whip left to get [4] then
go up the ramp to the second level.

When you get up to the second level, get [5] which is ahead of you but a
little to the left then turn around and get [6] which is in a car (smack the
car to move it out of the way when you get the checkpoint) then angle left to
get [7] and straighten out to get [8] then turn right and go up the ramp.

When you get up to level three, spin left to get the checkpoint which is
sitting by the ramp [9] (another commonly missed checkpoint) then turn around
and go along the right wall to get [10] and [11] (be careful when approaching
the wall - there seems to be an invisible obstacle near where the ramp is).
When you get [12], back up and turn right to go up the ramp.

After getting up to level four, get the one ahead and off to the right [13]
then turn right to get [14] then whip left to get [15] then get the
checkpoint near the ramp before going up [16].

After getting up to level five, turn left to get the checkpoint by the ramp 
[17] then turn around and go to the checkpoint along the right wall [18] then 
turn left to get [19] then go along the wall and jump off the ramp to get the 
last checkpoint suspended in the air [20].

When you acquire the last checkpoint for "Multistorey Mayhem" you will get
$30,000 as a reward.

| IV.8. Taxi Mission                                                 [TXMS] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Whenever you enter a Taxi, you have the option of doing the Taxi Mission by 
pressing Activate Vehicle Mission. The mission comprises of picking up fares 
and driving them to their destination a la Sega's "Crazy Taxi".

The more fares you pick up in one run, the more money you make. In earlier
versions of this guide I said that the easiest place to do this mission was
in Portland. However, while playing around on the Xbox version, I found that
doing it on Staunton Island was easier especially when using the Taxi Trick
which allows you to use another vehicle for a Taxi (Official U.S. PlayStation
Magazine Demo Disc (Issue 67): Taxi Trick by DeMarlo King.)

First, get a Taxi and go to The Condos in Newport. There you will see a
Yakuza Stinger. Park close to the Stinger, exit the Taxi, and get into the
Stinger to see if it is unlocked. If it is unlocked, reenter the Taxi.

Press and HOLD the Activate Vehicle Mission button. While holding the
Activate Vehicle Mission button, exit your Taxi and enter the other car. On
the PS2, the Activate Vehicle Mission is usually the R3 button (except on one
setup) and Right Analog Stick is also the Look Around stick so it will be
disorienting trying to get to the other car.

Once you get close enough to the other car, press Enter Vehicle and, once
inside (wait until you close the car door otherwise the mission will end
before it begins), release the Activate Vehicle Mission button. Now the Taxi
Mission will begin inside the new car.

This trick also works on the Xbox version and is much easier to do since the
X button is the Activate Vehicle Mission button so there is no disorientation
while trying to get into the other vehicle.

And, thanks to one of my regular readers, Glen T. Winstein, this also works
on the PC version:

  "The taxi trick works for PC: hold Caps Lock to initiate activation of the 
   mission, hit F to exit the taxi, maneuver Al to whatever other vehicle, 
   hit F to enter it, then release Caps Lock."

I used the Stinger because it handles a lot better at high speed than the
Banshee (which I was using in earlier versions of the guide when in
Portland). The only thing to look out for is when you are told to go the Fort
Staunton Construction Site. While getting your customer to it, you will be
shot at by Columbians so you have to make sure that they can't get into
position to pull you out (and end your mission). Strangely enough, half the
time I drop off a customer there my next fare tends to be one of the
Columbians trying to shoot me.

Even though Staunton Island is bigger than Portland Island, the Stinger helps
you to make quick work of the Taxi Mission (the flatter terrain helps also).

When you get 100 fares total (not necessarily in one run), you will unlock
the Borgnine Taxi at Borgnine Taxis which is next door to HEAD Radio in
Harwood (Portland Island) and inch closer to 100% Completion.

 \=========================================================================/

Don't forget to do the Firetruck and Vigilante Missions for Staunton Island. 
As before, only the first twenty kills in the Vigilante Mission count toward 
additional Police Bribes and the first twenty fires put out during the 
Firefighter Mission count toward getting the Flame-Thrower Weapon Icon for
all of your Safehouses.

A Firetruck can be found at the Belleville Park Fire Station and a Police Car
can be found at the Torrington Police Station.

 \=========================================================================/

In a parking lot just northwest of Kenji's Casino is another Toyz Van.
Entering it will trigger the Toyz Van Mission "Casino Calamity". Just like
"Diablo Destruction" and "Mafia Massacre", you have to use remote controlled
cars to destroy gang vehicles. In this mission, you have to destroy as many
Yakuza Stingers as you can in two minutes.

With all of the side stuff done on Staunton Island let's go back to the Main
Story Missions starting with.....

Asuka Kasen is a member of the Yakuza, the infamous Japanese crime syndicate. 
She has a brother, Kenji who is also a member. She will provide Claude with
new objectives as he deals with the Mafia betrayal.

She has eight missions total and five of them can be done from the "A" at 
Asuka's Condo. The last three will be done at another location later in the 
game.

It is very important to note that you MUST do the mission "Two-Faced Tanner"
(Asuka Kasen) before the mission "Grand Theft Aero" (Donald Love). If you do
"Grand Theft Aero" (Donald Love" first then you will NOT be able to do
"Two-Faced Tanner" (Asuka Kasen) and you will lose out on 100% Completion.

| Overview \
0===========0

  Before Asuka can give you work with the Yakuza, Claude must prove to them 
  that his Mafia ties are completely broken. Asuka tells Claude to kill 
  Salvatore Leone who is currently at the Sex Club 7 in the Red Light 
  District. In the meantime, Asuka and Maria will catch up on old times:

     Maria: "Oh...Asuka, you've got a massager."
     Asuka: "That's not a massager."

  You may want to take a Mafia Sentinel from Salvatore's Mansion and put it 
  in the garage at your Safehouse prior to doing this mission. This will save 
  you some extra work when doing the mission "Gangcar Round-Up" (King 
  Courtney) later in the game.

0======0
| Notes \
0========0

  I have some new information by Dan Stephen.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0===========0

  You have three hours to get in position to take down Salvatore. Grab the 
  Yakuza Stinger that is always parked by the condo and zip over to Red Light 
  District as fast as possible.

  However, according to Vicktor Volpe, you can also take a Speeder and head 
  to the small dock near Callahan Bridge. Then head toward the road and jack 
  a vehicle so you can proceed to Red Light District.

  The absolute best place to take out Salvatore is where RLD-H17 was (the 
  rooftop across from Sex Club 7). From there you can use the Sniper 
  Rifle on Salvatore when he leaves the club. Once you waste him, the mission 
  is complete.

  Another option, by Dan Stephen, is to do the following:

     "What I basically did is got in the back of Sex Club 7 and waited for 
      the bodyguards and Salvatore himself to come out of the service door. I 
      simply hurled tonnes of Molotov Cocktails at them until I got the 
      "Mission Passed!" message. It works around 70-80% of the time."

  If you have the Rocket Launcher then you can do what Hollyrotten77 
  suggests. Instead of heading to the Sex Club 7 go to Salvatore's Mansion. 
  Actually, go near the road entrance and wait just inside. Salvatore's car 
  will come from the south and destroy his car just before he gets to the 
  road entrance leading to his Mansion.

  In addition, the Mafia will be hostile to you so it will be very dangerous 
  to enter the St. Marks neighborhood (because they will now start carrying 
  Shotguns which are extremely powerful and will kill you quickly).

  Also, you will be paged by King Courtney, leader of the Yardies. I will do 
  his missions later in the guide.

  Finally, the BF Injection that Joey Leone was working on when doing his 
  missions will appear at Misty's Building in Hepburn Heights in the late 
  evening hours. Grab and save it at your Staunton Island garage for later 
  when you open up Shoreside Vale (so you can take it to the Suburban Import 
  Export Garage).

| Overview \

  Although pleased at Salvatore's death, Asuka is unhappy with the Mafia 
  looking out for Claude. Their lookout posts in Staunton Island are causing 
  the Yakuza problems and Asuka orders Claude to take out these spies and end 
  the vendetta. She also introduces Claude to Kenji, her brother, who would 
  like to meet him later at his casino.

  As mentioned earlier, the dialogue for this cutscene in the Xbox version 
  has changed. She mentions that the federal agents are doing the 
  surveillance instead of the Mafia. However, while the spoken dialogue was 
  changed, the subtitles were not thus making the cutscene a little awkward.

  There are three lookout posts on Staunton Island and you have six and a 
  half minutes to destroy them all but this mission isn't very hard.

  The first post is on the small island in the lake at the Main Park. Take 
  the Yakuza Stinger and drive up to the park's wall and jump on top of the 
  car. Use the Sniper Rifle to take out the two lookouts there.

  The second post is a van sitting not too far from Liberty Tree offices in 
  Bedford Point. Go to the east side of the block where they are at, go into 
  the narrow alley (where there is a Police Bribe), and get behind the van. 
  Drop a Grenade and run back the way you came. The Grenade will take care of 
  the van before it can do any harm to you.

  The last lookout post is the office building across from Kenji's Casino in 
  Torrington. There are a total of six spies on the side of the building. Get 
  up to the top of Kenji's Casino, using the stairs at the entrance, to get 
  at them. Use the nearby helicopter as cover as you kill them.

  Once you have killed the last Mafia goon, the mission will be successfully 
  completed.

  If you managed to get all of the Hidden Packages to get the Rocket Launcher

  For the first post, shoot the tree on the island to cause splash damage to 
  kill the goons.

  For the second post, stay some distance and shoot the van to destroy it.

  For the third post, shoot the side of the building a few times to kill the 
  remaining goons to complete the mission.

  8-Ball's BombShop (near the Pay 'N' Spray in Newport) to rig it with a 
  bomb.

  Then go the Torrington Police Station. The gate will only open for a Police 
  Vehicle which is why you need one. Park the car in the blue circle (note 
  the Police brutality going on inside the HQ), arm the bomb, get out, and 
  head for the other Police Car parked nearby.

  By the time you get inside the Police Car, the bomb will have exploded and 
  you will get a 3-Star Wanted Rating. Pick up the Yakuza and drive to the 
  other gate leading into the tunnel. The tunnel has a Police Bribe so that 
  will definitely help. Hang left at the end of the tunnel and once you get 
  back to the street, head for your Safehouse and use the Police Bribes there 
  to get rid of your Wanted Rating.

  Once you have done that, head over to the Dojo to complete your mission.

  it before deposit.

  The best way to do this is to take your fast car and get the Stinger first 
  then, after depositing that, take the Blista in the nearby garage and go 
  after the Cheetah. After depositing the Cheetah, use the Blista again and 
  get the Infernus. After depositing the Infernus, your mission is complete.

  A friend of Ray's, Phil Cassidy, needs some help after some Columbians

  Get a regular vehicle prior to taking the mission. Get some additional ammo 
  for the AK-47 from the Newport Ammu-Nation.

0======0
| Notes \
0========0

  I had several readers suggest using an Ambulance for this mission.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0===========0

  After the mission starts, go to Carson General Hospital to pick up an 
  Ambulance then go over to Phil Cassidy's Army Surplus in Rockford.

  Notice the blue circle. Do NOT touch it yet. Drive past it on the left then 
  turn around, make sure that the Ambulance is pointed north or northwest, 
  then drive into the blue circle. You will then automatically get out and 
  talk to Phil. It is important to do it this way for reasons I will explain 
  next. If you get out and walk into the blue circle, your vehicle will 
  disappear.

  Why would you need an Ambulance? Simple, because the Columbians are sneaky 
  bastards and you need something to keep them at bay. After talking to Phil, 
  take your Ambulance and drive between the nearby Barracks OL and the 
  container crates then turn left and drive into the wall but stay close to 
  the container crates.

  After getting out of the vehicle, you will notice that there are M-16, 
  Uz-I, and Shotgun Weapon Icons on the ground near Phil. There is also a 
  Body Armor Icon between the container crates and a Rhino tank (which you 
  can't enter).

  In addition, there is also a Molotov and a Rocket Launcher Weapon Icon on 
  top of the nearby container crates. This is what you bring the Ambulance 
  for. So you can quickly climb and acquire the Rocket Launcher Weapon Icon 
  from the top of the container crates if you want to do so. If you decide to 
  acquire the weapon you may want to drop back down to ground level since the 
  Columbians have a habit of knocking you off with the Shotgun.

  A big plus to using the Ambulance this way is that it will help block off 
  the back pathway that a sneaky Columbians will use to try to get to Phil.

  If you managed to get the Rocket Launcher then this mission becomes easier 
  since you can blow up the Cartel Cruisers and then wall near the main gate 
  to kill the Columbians in groups. Then blow up the Ambulance to kill those 
  trying to use the back pathway.

  If you can't get the Rocket Launcher then use the AK-47 on those using the 
  back pathway first then on those trying to go through the main gate.

  Any Columbians that manage to get through the main gate Phil will take care 
  of with his M-16. However, if too many get through at once, they will kill 
  Phil and you will get a mission failure.

  After killing all of the Columbians, regardless of weapon or method, talk 
  to Phil. This will end your mission successfully.

| IV.14. Acquiring the Rhino (The Safe Method)                       [AQRS] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

I've had a couple of readers (Nick R., Magnamerik) state to me that you can
actually acquire the Rhino left over at the end of the previous mission.
However, the tank is locked and you cannot knock the door off. So how do you
take it?

First off you need to have the Infinite Run feature gained from the Ambulance
Mission. Second, you will also need room in your Staunton Island Safehouse
garage for the Rhino.

What you need to do is get behind the Rhino and push it to your Safehouse.
That's right, push the tank by running behind it (this is why you need to
Infinite Run feature).

Believe it or not, the tank is not that hard to push forward. That is, as
long as it is on flat ground. Getting it up hills is going to be the tough
part.

From Phil Cassidy's Army Surplus, push the Rhino up to Staunton Loop (North)
and turn it west toward Liberty Memorial Coliseum. When you reach the
three-way intersection, turn the Rhino south and push it all the way to the
three-way intersection at the south end of the road. Stay in the road and in
a single lane as you make your way there.

When you get to the south end of the road, turn the tank east and start
pushing it up the hill. This is the hardest part of the journey. When the
tank stops moving up then you need to zig-zag it up the hill. To zig-zag you
need to get on the back right rear of the tank and push it so the Rhino
angles left a little. Then move over to the left rear of the tank and push
that corner until the Rhino angles right a little. Keep repeating this
pattern and you will slowly get the tank up the hill.

Once you are at the signal lights at the top of the hill, turn the Rhino
right and then push it toward the entrance of your Safehouse area. Once you
get the tank down to the garage area, push it toward the door so you can get
it to open (and stay open). Push the tank into your garage and let the door
close.

When you open the door again you should hear the low rumblings of your new
Rhino and the tank door will now be unlocked so you can enter and use it. And
all without having to face the soldiers.

Although the hill near the hospital is shorter than the hill near your
Safehouse it is NOT recommended you go that way. When you go up the main road
through the Fort Staunton area you will be attacked by the Columbians. During
one attempt I had no less than TEN Columbians suddenly spawn around me and
shred me in a matter of seconds. Not cool.

If you do not have the patience to do this method then you can still get the
tank the old fashioned way which I will go over in the Shoreside Vale section
of the guide.

  When Claude arrives at the toilet block, Ray gives him his next assignment 
  while taking care of more personal matters:

     "I know a real important man in town, a soft touch, with shall we say, 
      exotic tastes and the money to indulge them. He's involved in legal 
      matter and the prosecution has some rather embarrassing photos of him 
      at a morgue party or something. The evidence is being driven across 
      town. You are going to have to ram that car and collect each little bit 
      of evidence as it falls out. When you've got it all, leave it in the 
      car and torch it." 

0========0
| Weapons \
0==========0

  Grenades.

0==========0
| Prep Work \
0============0

  Do the Vigilante Mission to gain Police Bribes for your Safehouses. Get a 
  Firetruck and take it with you to the Main Park.

0======0
| Notes \
0========0

  Got a very good method from Peter Korsten.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0===========0

  The evidence is in a Bobcat and traveling around Staunton Island. There are 
  six evidence packets to collect and you have to hit the Bobcat to get one 
  of them.

  You cannot hit the Bobcat six times to get all of the packets to fall out 
  then collect them. You have to hit the truck, get the packet, and chase the 
  truck so you can hit it again and repeat the process.

  After hitting it the first time, you will attain a 2-Star Wanted Rating so 
  now you have to deal with the Cops too.

  But, according to Leo, you can go back to your Safehouse and use the Police 
  Bribes to get rid of the Wanted Rating. In addition, when you hit the 
  Bobcat again you will NOT regain the Wanted Rating so the mission becomes 
  much easier since you no longer have to deal with the Cops.

  Once you have all six packets, destroy the Firetruck and any manner you 
  like (except putting it in the water) to complete the mission.

  However, according to Peter Korsten, if you managed to acquire the Rhino at 
  the end of "Arms Shortage" then you can use that vehicle instead. The 
  target vehicle is going as fast as the tank so you can't really catch up 
  unless you use the Tank Gun Boost. Ram the target vehicle to destroy it and 
  successfully complete the mission.

Donald Love is the richest and most powerful person in Liberty City. If you 
have ever played "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City", you will realize that he has
learned his lessons from Avery Carrington well.

He has seven missions total and can be found at the "D" at, where else, Love 
Media.

  After Donald introduces himself to Claude, he wants him to go and rescue a 
  friend of his from the Columbians who are holed up in Aspatria.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0==========0

  Sniper Rifle, AK-47.

0==========0
| Prep Work \
0============0

  Get a Cartel Cruiser (there is one at the Pan-Lantic construction site) and 
  save it at your garage so you can use it for this mission.

0======0
| Notes \
0========0

  Got a nifty tip from Peter Wilmont.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0===========0

  After the cutscene, grab the Cartel Cruiser from your garage and head down 
  to the gated area in Aspatria (where you acquired APT-H38). Don't go in 
  yet. Get out and switch to your Sniper Rifle.

  You will see six Columbians on patrol and you can see four of them through 
  the gate. Snipe them through the gate then get back into your Cruiser and 
  drive it into the compound a short distance. Then get back out and snipe 
  the remaining two Columbians.

  The Old Oriental Gentleman is randomly generated in the four closed garages 
  and there is a Columbian in each one, armed with an AK-47, that you have to 
  kill.

  Reader Peter Wilmont came up with a safe way to dispose of the Columbians 
  when you open the garages.

  Take the Cartel Cruiser and park it close, lengthwise, and with the 
  passenger side to the garage door. Get out then get the door to open. Once 
  the door starts to open quickly run back to the driver side of the Cartel 
  Cruiser.

  What will happen is that the Cartel Cruiser will act as a kind of shield. 
  With you on the opposite side of the Cruiser the Columbian will stand in 
  place and will NOT try to shoot at you. However, you can snipe him easily 
  over the back end of the Cruiser.

  Do this at each garage until you find the one with the Old Oriental 
  Gentleman.

  Once you rescue the Old Oriental Gentleman, get into your Cruiser, wait for 
  the old man to follow, and drive back to Love Media to complete the 
  mission.

| Overview \

  Donald gives Claude his next mission when he arrives at Love Media:

     "Nothing drives down real estate prices like a good old fashioned gang 
      war, apart from an outbreak of plague......but that might be going too 
      far in this case. I noticed that the Yakuzas and the Columbians are far 
      from friends. Let's capitalize on this business opportunity. I want you 
      to kill the Yakuza Waka-gashira. Kenji Kasen. Kenji is attending a 
      meeting at the top of the multi-story carpark in Newport. Get a Cartel 
      gangcar and eliminate him! The Yakuza must blame the Cartel for this 
      declaration of war."

0========0
| Weapons \
0==========0

  Rocket Launcher (optional), Grenades (optional).

0==========0
| Prep Work \
0============0

  **IMPORTANT: If you still haven't done all of Kenji's missions do so now 
               before doing this assignment otherwise you risk being screwed 
               out of getting 100% Completion.

  Use the Cartel Cruiser from the last mission and buy some Rocket Launchers 
  from Phil Cassidy's Army Surplus if you don't already have the Rocket 
  Launcher Weapon Icon at your Safehouses.

0======0
| Notes \
0========0

  This is one of the biggest lessons that Donald learned from Avery 
  Carrington when Tommy Vercetti did "Two Bit Hit" (Avery Carrington) in Vice 
  City.....

     "Now, nothing brings down real estate prices quicker than a good 
      old-fashioned gang war 'cept maybe a disaster, like a biblical plague 
      or something, but, that may be going too far in this case. You getting 
      this down, you four-eyed prick?"

  I had two readers, Emilio Rivera and Reine Larsson, suggest a faster and 
  more direct method than what I was using before.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0===========0

  Head back to your Safehouse and take the Cartel Cruiser from your garage. 
  Drive into the Multistory Carpark and go up the ramps on the NORTH side of 
  the Carpark.

  When you get near the top of the Carpark you will see a cutscene with Kenji 
  and several guards. You will notice that one of them, near the center, has 
  a powerful M-16.

  After the cutscene, take the ramp to the top level, turn south, speed up, 
  and angle southeast towards the east side of this level and to the gap 
  between the wall and one of the Yakuza Stingers. Once you get through this 
  gap you should be able to run over Kenji easily.

  After killing Kenji, get past the next Yakuza Stinger and angle southwest 
  and towards Unique Stunt Jump NPT-J9. If you are fast enough in killing 
  Kenji then the guard with the M-16 won't be able to do much damage.

  At this point you will get a 3-Star Wanted Rating. Hit the Jump and land on 
  the street below. Don't worry if you manage to destroy the Cartel Cruiser 
  when you land. As long as you get out of it alive then you will be alright.

  What you need to do is dump the vehicle and get out of Newport. If oyu 
  destroyed the Cartel Cruiser upon landing then run west toward Belleville 
  Park. If the Cartel Cruiser survived the landing then drive it into 
  Belleville Park.

  Once you get into Belleville Park then the mission is successfully 
  completed uopn either running into the area or drive into it and get out of 
  the vehicle.

  Donald wants Claude to get a boat and retrieve some packages being dropped 
  by plane near the Callahan Bridge.....

0========0

0==========0

  None.

0==========0
| Prep Work \
0============0

  Get a fast car and store it in your garage prior to this mission.

0======0
| Notes \
0========0

  John Nowakowski had this to add about this mission:

     "Start the mission with an empty hand so you can run the fastest. You 
      won't need weapons. After you get the packages go to the Northernmost 
      dock, which should be the nearest, and the one closest to where you 
      pick up the missions from Asuka. When you exit the boat, the helicopter 
      will be shouting and shooting, but you shouldn't be hit very much, if 
      at all, if you run up the stairs. There, you should be able to hop into 
      the Yakuza Stinger without any interference. Once in the Stinger, don't 
      go left through the opening, just jump the curb heading west. At this 
      point, an FBI (unmarked) car will be speeding towards you and try to 
      ram you. Try to avoid it, but even if you can't you should be able to 
      recover quickly. Depending on how long it takes, there might be a 
      second FBI car zooming towards you, but you should be able to hang that 
      first right into the Pay N' Spray alley before it gets to you."

0=========0
| The Plan \
0===========0

  You have two minutes to get into position. Drive as fast as you can to The 
  Condos, go down to the piers, and get a Speeder. Get to the blip and 
  follow the plane.

  When the clock reaches zero, the plane will start dropping packages into 
  the water. The plane will drop a total of six packages into the water. For 
  each package you collect, your Wanted Rating will increase by one star 
  until you reach the current maximum of 5-Stars. When you get the last 
  package, get to one of the piers and get out.

  This is also an excellent opportunity to acquire an FBI Car for the  
  Emergency Vehicle Crane. Get a Yakuza Stinger and drive underneath the 
  Newport Bridge and get out. This will help shield you from the helicopter.

  When a FBI Car shows up, wait for it to stop, and as the occupants exit the 
  car, run away as fast as you can (because they pack some serious heat) 
  using the pillars as cover, and turn around and go back. The car should 
  still be there but the FBI agents are now gone (this trick also works in 
  GTA: Vice City). Get the FBI Car and go to the nearby Pay 'N' Spray to get 
  rid of the Wanted Ratings. The FBI Car is the only Police Vehicle you can 
  use with a Pay 'N' Spray.

  Take the FBI Car to the Crane at Portland Island and then get another car 
  and go back to Love Media to end the mission.

  Of course, if you're not interested in acquiring an FBI Car at this point 
  in time, then, as Mike Wilson suggested and after acquiring the sixth 
  package, park the boat at the piers at The Condos. Then go up and garb a 
  vehicle and quickly head to the Pay 'N' Spray nearby to get rid of the 
  Wanted Ratings. After that, you can now go back to Love Media uncontested 
  to successfully end the mission.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=========0

  $10,000.

  In addition, a news report will flash on the radio. The broken Shoreside 
  Lift Bridge has been fixed and now you can go by car to Shoreside Vale. Go 
  back to your garage and get the BF Injection and go to the Suburban Import 
  Export Garage.

  If you weren't able to get Package SSV-H75 prior to this mission (if you 
  went to the other side early), this is the chance to get it. Take the BF 
  Injection and drive onto the drawbridge. Climb onto the dune buggy and then 
  onto the median. When the drawbridge rises, get SSV-H75 to take one step 
  closer to finishing collecting the Hidden Packages.

  As you enter Shoreside Vale, you will receive a message on your pager 
  telling you to go to the phone in Wichita Gardens. This opens up D-Ice's 
  set of missions but I will do those later.

  After depositing the BF Injection at the Suburban Import Export Garage in 
  Pike Creek, if you haven't done so during Early Exploration, go and acquire 
  the Dodo at Francis International Airport and drive it back to Portland 
  Island and to the Industrial Import Export Garage.

  With the Shoreside Lift Bridge fixed and the Porter Tunnel completed it is 
  time to go over.....

  Locations:

  [CDG-R14-A] -  Behind the car garage of the gray house two houses west of 
                 the Columbian Mansion at The Homes in Cedar Grove.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                 Notes: PS2 Version
                        ***********
                        Use a Cartel Cruiser and drive to the Rampage Icon. 
                        After getting the icon, quickly drive over to the 
                        Columbian Mansion. Go inside the gate and drive to 
                        the southwest corner, get out, and walk right up 
                        against the fence. You can shoot flames through the 
                        fences and walls so the fence will protect you from 
                        the nasty Columbians. Start by sweeping left for a 
                        couple of seconds and then sweep right for a couple 
                        of seconds and repeat pattern until rampage is 
                        completed. This tactic gave me a more consistent 
                        success rate. I tried going behind the fences to the 
                        houses next door to the Rampage Icon but I found that 
                        the game did not generate as many targets for me to 
                        get rid of and I would always fail. I found that by 
                        going to the Mansion, the game would generate more 
                        targets. Plus they don't know I'm there even as I 
                        roast them.

                        Xbox Version
                        ************
                        The above tactic doesn't work in the Xbox version 
                        because it never seems to generate enough Columbians 
                        near the Columbian Mansion for it to be successful. 
                        Here, just walk to the sidewalk but hang just behind 
                        the short wall near the large hedge. You will receive 
                        some damage from the Columbians but the game will 
                        generate enough for you to successfully complete the 
                        Rampage. And they will run up to you making it easy 
                        to flame them.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  [PKC-R14-B] -  Behind the wall in front of The Fudge Packing Corp. in Pike 
                 Creek.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                 Notes: Get the Icon and go to the northeast corner where the 
                        road bends and stand behind the wall. Sweep left and 
                        right to get your targets. If you need to get more 
                        targets, move from behind the wall and lure some 
                        Columbians to your position and duck behind the wall 
                        again. Not too hard.

| [R15] - Behead 20 Hoods (M-16) |

 \XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/

  Locations:
  **********

  [WCG-R15-A] - Behind the Squid sign in the northeast corner of The Projects 
                at Wichita Gardens.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                Notes: Use a car to get up to the Rampage. When you start, 
                       get back into the car and drive off and back onto the 
                       street. Go into the parking lot and turn right then 
                       stop at the Adrenaline Icon (across the street from 
                       the Stalkers sign). Grab it, walk about halfway to the 
                       street, and start shooting at the Hoods. Their shirt 
                       color, red or purple, makes no difference. Remember, 
                       only headshots count for kills. But with you on an 
                       adrenaline high (everything slows down), This 
                       shouldn't be too hard. Aim at their heads and take 
                       very short controlled bursts.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  [CDG-R15-B] - Behind the "Gasoline. For youth on the move" sign on the 
                west hairpin turn on Cedar Road.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                Notes: Get the Icon, get between the signs, go to the 
                       railing, and start shooting. For some reason, the 
                       Hoods don't know you are there even as you take them 
                       out so they don't shoot at you. This makes this 
                       Rampage easier. Even better, some of the Hoods will 
                       walk directly in front of you making for easy point 
                       blank shots.

  Locations:
  **********

  [PKC-R16-A] - Behind the white crate near PKC-J15 southeast of the 
                Undercover Storage Company in Pike Creek.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                Notes: Get a car and drive to the Icon. Get the Rampage Icon, 
                       get back into your car, drive up the ramp and fall 
                       down to the street below. It is a long way down and 
                       hopefully you will be able to land on your wheels. If 
                       you do and maintain control, quickly make your way to 
                       the Burke Supply Co. just south of your position. Get 
                       to the corner edge of the building and get out. Aim 
                       south at the street to claim your targets. The small 
                       wall will keep the Columbians from getting any closer 
                       but will allow you to make headshots. Many of them 
                       will cluster in one place trying to get to you but 
                       instead will allow you to get a lot of targets 
                       quickly. The Columbians will take off some armor but 
                       if you are good with your aim this Rampage shouldn't 
                       be too bad.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  [PKC-R16-B] - On the end of the long building behind the Pike Creek Police 
                Station (southeast corner).
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                Notes: Same strategy as before except that you want to place 
                       a car just before the small ramp below where the Icon 
                       is. Run back up to the Icon, get it, jump down, get 
                       into your vehicle, drive up the ramp, and jump into 
                       the street. Then go the Burke Supply Co. and take out 
                       the Columbians.

| [R17] - Splatter 20 Hoods (Shotgun) |
0=====================================0
 \XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/

  Locations:
  **********

  [WCG-R17-A] - On top of one of the car garages by the northeast apartment 
                building for The Projects in Wichita Gardens (jump from the 
                main bridge to reach).
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                Notes: Get the Icon and jump back down to ground level. Get 
                       into the Kuruma that is parked nearby and quickly 
                       drive east and to the main road. Get out on the east 
                       side of the road and get out. Go south and shoot the 
                       Hoods as they appear. If you try to do the Rampage 
                       near where you got it, you may be swarmed by lots of 
                       Hoods. They generate on both sides of the narrow side 
                       road and all the Hoods from both sides of the road 
                       will quickly converge on your position and they will 
                       take off your armor and health quickly. The main road 
                       to the east is much wider so you can work on one side 
                       of the road and usually not attract the attention of 
                       the Hoods on the other side. This will make things 
                       manageable. Any Hoods that shoot at you will be the 
                       ones far away from you and they will be running toward 
                       you. But since they are far from you, they can't 
                       really hurt you because their guns (Pistol, Uz-I) are 
                       not good from long range and you can knock them down 
                       before they can do any damage.

  [FIA-R17-B] - Behind the Sumo sign at the intersection of the main road and 
                the road leading to Francis International Airport.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                Notes: Go up the main road and shoot the Hoods as they 
                       generate. The wide main road will allow you to work 
                       one side of the road without attracting the attention 
                       of the Hoods across the street. They will usually 
                       generate in groups and the powerful Shotgun will make 
                       quick work of all the Hoods you target. A pretty easy 
                       Rampage.

                Notes: Just stay on top of the roof and shoot the cars from 
                       your position. Also try to kill the pedestrians to 
                       attract Police cars. If you get a 3-Star Wanted 
                       Rating, the Police Helicopter also counts as a 
                       vehicle. The only issue is if the game will generate 
                       enough targets for you to destroy within the two 
                       minutes.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                Notes: Get a vehicle and drive to the Icon. Position your car 
                       so you can see the Airport Parking lot. Get out, get 
                       the Icon, and get back in again. Drive toward the 
                       Airport Parking lot but at the same time go east. Get 
                       out when you get to a point where you can see the 
                       entire parking lot. There are about nine cars in the 
                       lot and you can get them quickly. Walk away from your 
                       car and destroy it. Now you only have five cars to get 
                       and just walk up to the main road. However, there are 
                       pedestrians around and you will usually kill some when 
                       you destroy cars. Some of them may attack you as you 
                       try to complete your objectives. Just focus on the 
                       cars and you will be OK.

                       Airport Fire Station and drive to the Rampage Icon. 
                       Get the Icon and use the Firetruck to run over the 
                       Columbians. The Firetruck should withstand their 
                       gunfire long enough to survive the Rampage. When you 
                       start, drive under the main bridge and go back to the 
                       main road and enter near the Sumo sign. The reason for 
                       this is that the road on front of the airport terminal 
                       entrance is narrow and the Columbians will shoot you 
                       from the other side of the road seriously damaging 
                       your vehicle. By doing this, you will only have to 
                       deal with the ones in front of you limiting their 
                       damage potential. Drive up the main road and kill the 
                       necessary Columbians to succeed.

                       becomes easier since they cannot damage the vehicle 
                       with gunfire. Thanks to Christopher Mora for that

[CCD-J13] - The embankment at the outer edge of the hairpin turn just west of 
            the Cochrane Dam entrance.
            Heading: East to West.
            Notes: Start at the 90-degree turn, just east of the Cochrane Dam 
                   entrance (where the road turns north toward the Upstate 
                   Tunnel entrance), point west, and go. According to John E. 
                   Schneider you can also start at the Wichita Tunnel and 
                   approach the jump from the southeast.

[PKC-J14] - The ramp on the east side of the Undercover Storage Company.
            Heading: West to East.
            Notes: You must land in the enclosed area in the southeast corner 
                   of the The Fudge Packing Corp. to succeed (also where 
                   CCD-H81 is located).

[PKC-J15] - The ramp on the southeast side of the Undercover Storage Company 
            where PKC-R16-A is located
            Heading: North to South.
            Notes: You must land on top of the south building behind the Pike 
                   Creek Police Station (where PKC-R16-B is located) to 
                   succeed.

[WCG-J16] - The broken bridge where WCG-H91 is located.
            Heading: South to North.
            Notes: You need to land in the street to get credit for the Jump.

| Francis International Airport (FIA) |
0=====================================0
 \XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX/

[FIA-J17] - The metal ramp by one of the Rockstar planes in the Plane Parking 
            Area (northeast of the Police Bribe).
            Heading: Est to West.
            Notes: At the West Airport Entrance find the door that has the 
                   "Terminal A" sign on it. Just to the north of it there is 
                   a metal ramp. Go to the ramp and look west. You should see 
                   a large plane ahead of you. There is also a metal ramp 
                   near the front of the plane. This is the ramp you use for 
                   the Jump.

[FIA-J18] - The left concrete ramp south of the north McAdams Airways hangar 
            west of the Plane Parking Area.
            Heading: South to North.
            Notes: The hangar you must jump over is directly west of FIA-J17. 
                   You can't touch the hangar so you will need to go to the 
                   runway to get enough speed to clear the building and get 
                   credit for the jump.

[FIA-J19] - The concrete ramps south of the Plane Parking Area and at the 
            west end of the Secondary Runway.
            Heading: West to East.
            Notes: When you complete FIA-J17 head directly south. You should 
                   run into a group of helicopters. To the west of them is a 
                   hangar. You have to jump the hangar with the ramps to the 
                   west of the building. You can't touch the hangar here with 
                   the car either so you will need some distance to make the 
                   jump. You can hit the helicopters at the end and still get 
                   credit for the jump.

[FIA-J20] - The concrete ramps east of FIA-J19.
            Heading: West to East.
            Notes: Get on the runway and start by the concrete ramps for 
                   FIA-J19. Then line yourself with the ramps for FIA-J20 to 
                   clear the hangar.

After completion of the last Jump you will get your million dollar bonus and
another step toward 100% Completion.

 \=========================================================================/

Just north of the Pike Creek Pay 'N' Spray is a building, The Fudge Packing
Corp., that has a car list on it. This is the Suburban Import Export Garage.
This is just like the Industrial one on Portland Island but has a different
list of cars.

There are 16 vehicles listed that you need to collect. For each vehicle you
obtain you will get $1,000. If you get all 16 vehicles listed you will get a
$200,000 bonus plus you can have unlimited use of the cars you have
collected.

Just walk into the garage and pick one of the vehicle icons. You will then be
instructed to exit the garage and in a few seconds, your new car will be made
available to you.

Below is the vehicle list and where to find them. These are some of the more
reliable locations and missions to find the vehicles. "Generated at random"
means that you have to wait for them to spawn on their own before you can
acquire them:

  >>Stretch
    *******
    Description: A long stretch limousine.

  >>BF Injection
    ************
    Description: A dune buggy.
    Where Found: Can be found near Misty's Building at Hepburn Heights 
                 (Portland Island) (evening hours) after completion of 
                 "Sayonara Salvatore" (Asuka Kasen).

It was in front of the building here that I pulled off an unusual feat that
can be best called a "double jacking". After depositing a car in the garage,
I jacked a van so I could go back to the airport to get another car. After
about thirty feet I heard "get out" and the van stopped as Claude climbed
out of the van.

What I didn't see, while I was pulling out the first driver, was a thug
entering the van from the passenger side as I was taking it. So now I was
being jacked about thirty feet from where I just got the van.

However, Claude was on his feet and not stepping away from the van when he
exited. So, as the thug moved into the driver seat, I pressed Enter Vehicle
to rejack the van and remove the thug that tried to take it. Served him
right.

And it was here that reader Lee Cochran also had something funny happen to
him:

     "I pulled up with the Infernus at the Fudge Packing Import/Export and as 
      I waited for the door to open, someone jacked me. The guy through me 
      out of the car and sped off...into the open garage. "Delivered like a 
      pro" flashed on the screen and I was off to boost. See, street thugs 
      can be helpful too, like stealing your car and putting it in the garage 
      for you."

| V.7. Acquiring the Rhino (The Not-So-Safe Method)                  [AQRN] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Now that you've opened up Shoreside Vale, your Wanted Ratings can go up to
the maximum of 6-Stars. This means that you can try to get the Rhino by
getting a 6-Star Wanted Rating, and taking it from the soldiers, so you can
complete the Emergency Vehicle Crane list (assuming that you didn't acquire
the tank after the mission "Arms Shortage" (Ray Machowski)).

As outlined earlier, the soldiers that come after you are very tough to deal
with so getting the Rhino during a 6-Star rampage can be difficult. But this
task can be made easier by doing your rampage in the right place.

And that place would be at the Wichita Gardens Safehouse. Or more
specifically, the garage there. For best results, have no cars in the garage.
Make sure that you have lots of ammo specifically for the Flame-Thrower and
the Rocket Launcher (go back to Portland Island and do the stock up trick to
get lots of ammo for it).

Go into the street and start flaming people until you have a 3-Star Wanted
Rating and when the helicopter shows up, rocket it out of the sky. Head back
to your garage and enter the left side (the side closest to the street).
Remember, you can use the Flame-Thrower through the wall so you can get
people on the other side easily. Usually, there are some Cops on the other
side so you can get it up to 5-Star quickly. Switch to your Rocket Launcher
and go into Target mode.

You may notice that the Cop and FBI cars are just driving around without
going after you. Because you are in the garage, the Cops behave differently.
If they are on foot, they will still go after you but if they remain in their
cars they will ignore you. You can shoot the cars easily from your position
and jack your Wanted Rating to 6-Star. You can also creep forward and rocket
the helicopters.

Now the Army will spawn Rhinos and Barracks OL's behind the garage area and
may get stuck on the lamppost on the other side of the garage wall. This is
what you want. If they make their way to the garage entrance, it will get
quite difficult. The trick here is to get them to come out of the tank.
Switch to your Uz-I. Creep forward and when you reach near the edge of the
open garage door overhead, they will usually come out. Quickly run back into
the garage and switch to your Flame-Thrower. Flame through the wall for a few
seconds to set the soldiers on the other side on fire. Remember, flame
weapons are the only things in your arsenal that can destroy the Rhino so you
want to set the soldiers on fire but not risk destroying the tank you are
trying to get.

After killing the soldiers switch to your Uz-I, quickly run out of the garage 
and grab the Police Bribes on the opposite end. Then get the now abandoned 
Rhino.

After getting the Rhino, drive it to the Crane to deposit it. After
completing the list and getting your bonus, get the Rhino Icon. After getting
the tank, drive it back to your Staunton Island hideout and save it. There
are some missions in which the tank may come in handy.

If you were diligent in getting all the cars for all of the car lists, you
should now have completed all of the car lists in the game.

Even though I've simplified the process of getting the tank, it may take a 
couple of tries to get it. Surviving a 6-Star Wanted Rating without the use
of cheats can always be difficult no matter where you are.

| V.8. "Gripped!"                                                    [GRPD] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

In the parking lot for the Beach Park in Shoreside Vale is a Patriot. When
you enter the Patriot, you begin the Patriot mission "Gripped!". Here you
have to collect 20 checkpoints and you have five minutes to collect them all. 

However, when you get the first checkpoint, you have 15 seconds to collect
the second one. Fortunately, the faster you can get the checkpoints, the more
time you can accumulate. The timer will start when you get the first
checkpoint.

This is probably the hardest of all of the vehicle missions in the game.
Mainly because of all of the climbing uphill and trying to control the
Patriot while going downhill. This mission is harder in the Xbox version
because the trees and foliage are made larger and more lush making it very
hard to see what you are doing.

Go left and get the first checkpoint [1]. The second checkpoint [2] is on a
small hill and if you try to get it head-on, you will most likely flip the
Patriot. Go to the left of the checkpoint and turn right to get it.

Behind [2] and partway up the rocky part of the hill is [3]. Then turn
slightly right and you will see two more checkpoints [4,5]. Number [4] is on
the left and should be acquired first. After getting [4], back up very
slightly and get number [5].

When you finally reach the top of the hill, you will see two checkpoints, one
to the right and one to the left. Get the one to the right first [6]. Be
careful, the trees will obscure your vision a bit.

After getting [6], back up and then whip the Patriot 180 degrees so you can
get number [7]. Be careful when you go from the grass to the rock otherwise
you may flip the car off the hill and back into Wichita Gardens. After
getting [7], turn right and go into the street.

Turn right and follow the street toward [8] which is right by the edge. Go up
the street and go between the last tree from the tunnel and the light-post to
get up the hill and claim [9].

The next three [10,11,12] are relatively easy and you can get them quickly to
accumulate a lot of time. After getting [12], turn left and brake slightly
going down and then climb up to get [13].

Getting number [14] is a bit tricky. From [13], head right and make sure that
[14] is off to your left. You will see that [14] is partway down the steep
hillside. Turn your Patriot right and position your vehicle so that [14] is
behind you. Then tap Reverse once and let gravity pull you to [14] and tap
Accelerate when necessary to keep control.

After getting [14], hold Accelerate and go straight up and get [15]. Turn
left and back down to get [16]. After [16], turn right and you will have to
go practically straight up this pointed hill to get [17]. Getting from [17]
to [18] is dangerous because of the steep hills so you will have to use
Handbrake and Reverse together to keep control.

After getting [1]), turn right and go get [19]. [19] is pretty easy to get
and after that is the last checkpoint [20]. [20] is sitting on the top of the
tunnel entrance on the right side and out of view. You can see the left side
of the the tunnel top and line yourself properly with it. If you don't, you
may fall into the street instead and miss [20].

Then go down and acquire the last checkpoint to complete the "Gripped!"
vehicle mission and get $40,000 as a reward.

| V.9. Vigilante and Firetruck Missions (Shoreside Vale)             [FTSV] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Don't forget to do the Firetruck and Vigilante Missions for Shoreside Vale. 
As before, only the first twenty kills in the Vigilante Mission count toward 
additional Police Bribes and the first twenty fires put out during the 
Firefighter Mission count toward getting the Flame-Thrower Weapon Icon for
all of your Safehouses.

A Firetruck can be found at the Francis International Airport Fire Station
and a Police Car can be found at the Pike Creek Police Station.

After getting the necessary requirements in both missions you should now have
six Police Bribes plus the Flame-Thrower Weapon Icon at all Safehouses. You
will also take two more steps toward 100% Completion.

Just northeast of the Shoreside Vale Safehouse, and behind the billboards, is
another Toyz Van. Entering it will trigger the last Toyz Van Mission "Rumpo
Rampage".

Just like "Diablo Destruction", "Mafia Massacre", and "Casino Calamity" you
have to use remote controlled cars to destroy gang vehicles. In this mission,
you have to destroy as many Rumpo XL's as you can in two minutes.

By completing this mission you will also finish all of the Toyz Van missions
and all of the side-missions in GTA3.

  Rock.....

  Sniper Rifle.

  Get about 30-50 rounds for the Sniper Rifle.

0======0
| Notes \
0========0

  I had a reader, Jesse Huongvilay, make a very interesting suggestion about 
  this mission. He didn't use the Predator but instead blew up Ray's partner 
  from land using a Rocket Launcher. I gave this a try and refined this idea 
  further. Instead of using the Rocket Launcher I used the Sniper Rifle for 
  better accuracy and less ammo wasted even though it takes a few more shots 
  to destroy the boat.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0===========0

  When the mission begins go to either the pier area near Asuka's condo or at 
  the slip south of the Callahan Bridge to get into the Predator. However, 
  once at the controls of the boat and the game prompts you to go after Ray's 
  partner, get out and back into your car.

  Drive over to the SupaSave! Store and go into the alley between the parking 
  lot and Portland Harbor. Then hang right when you get to the grass and head 
  to the beach. When you get close to the water, and near Ray's position, get 
  out and switch to your Sniper Rifle.

  Fire once at the boat to start the cutscene. After the cutscene you will 
  notice that you have damaged his boat a bit. He will also start to drive 
  around. He will loop around the large ship, the nearby rocks, and the 
  Lighthouse. He won't try to leave the area unless you chase him with the 
  Predator.

  Keep shooting at his boat with the Sniper Rifle. If you damage his boat 
  enough he will drop some barrels and make a run for the beach. You can 
  destroy the boat before he reaches shore by hitting it with a couple of 
  more shots.

  However, if he beaches his boat, he will jump out. If you are close to the 
  boat he will head toward you and try to kill you with AK-47. If this 
  happens use whatever weapon you want to kill him. But if you are far enough 
  away he will take a few steps then stop. When he stops, nail him with your 
  Sniper Rifle.

  By the way, if you kill him this way, you can wait for his boat to slip 
  back into the water and you can drive it around if you wish. However, his 
  boat, called the Ghost (Xbox) or Ghost missing (PS2), doesn't do anything 
  special.

  If you wait for him to come back around the large boat he will head for the 
  rocks and toward your position. You can destroy him with your Sniper Rifle 
  at this point without him making a run for the beach.

  Regardless of method, once you kill Ray's partner the mission is 
  successfully completed.

0===========0

  Take the Firetruck and head towards the blip. When you smack it the first 
  time you will be spotted and get a 2-Star Wanted Rating. Smack it again to 
  eject the witness. The bodycast is flame and bullet proof so you will have 
  to use something else to kill him. In this case you can run him over with 
  the Firetruck.

  You can either go back to your Safehouse to use the Police Bribes to get 
  rid of the Wanted Ratings then run him over or fight through the Police 
  pursuit to run him over. Once you run him over with the Firetruck (it may 
  take two tries) you will finally kill him and complete the mission.

  If you thought about using the Rhino or the Rocket Launcher on the 
  Ambulance, you're not alone. However, if you completely destroy the 
  Ambulance with the Rhino or a rocket, it will become a decoy and another 
  Ambulance will generate near the hospital. You will have to damage the 
  Ambulance without destroying it to eject the witness. This is why I used 
  the Firetruck instead of the Rhino.

  One of my readers, Richard Juntunen, suggested using a Rhino on this 
  mission. Tried it out and it works pretty good.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0===========0

  You have three minutes to take Ray to the airport and the Shoreside Lift 
  Bridge is being watched over by the CIA so you will have to take another 
  route.

  If you decide to use the fast car strategy, the best route is through the 
  subway and the nearest entryway is at Liberty Campus (north side of Liberty 
  Campus across the street from the stairs leading into Carson General 
  Hospital). Get to the tracks, go right, and stay on the left side. Exit 
  through the Francis International Airport subway entrance and go to the 
  blue circle to drop off Ray.

  If you decide to use the Rhino, just go up the bridge like you would in a 
  car. The CIA gunmen can't hurt you since you are in the tank. Even though 
  the tank is a little slow you can get to the Airport in plenty of time.

  As a reward for dropping off Ray at the Airport, you are given a set of 
  keys to a lock-up that has some goodies. Go to the lock-up which is near 
  the Tw@ Internet Cafe in Newport. Opening up the lock-up will reveal a 
  Bulletproof Patriot, a Rocket Launcher, a Sniper Rifle, a Flame-Thrower, 
  and an M-16.

  By getting to the lock-up, you also complete the mission.

  Don't forget to take the Bulletproof Patriot and save it at your garage for 
  future use.

  There are two ways to do this mission depending on your style:

  The Rocket Launcher Method
  **************************
  Go the the blue circle but don't enter it. Turn Claude until you are aiming 
  west down the street going from the casino's entrance. Switch to your 
  Rocket Launcher and step into the blue circle. Once the cutscene ends, 
  quickly go into Target mode and rocket his car to destroy it and complete 
  the mission.

  If you thought about destroying his car before he enters it, don't. You 
  will fail the mission. The car is also locked so you can't take it to 
  8-Ball's BombShop and rig it with a bomb.

  The Rhino Method
  ****************
  If you managed to acquire a tank you can use it here. Go back to your 
  garage and get your Rhino. Drive over to Kenji's Casino and park in the 
  blue circle. Wait for the undercover cop to get into his car. When he does, 
  follow him.

  If you were to use a regular car and hit this guy's car, you would get a 
  5-Star Wanted Rating and he will try to speed up and evade you (and you 
  would have to deal with FBI Cars and other Police Vehicles).

  But when you use the tank, one hit will automatically destroy him and 
  complete the mission. Simple. Then park your tank back in your garage for 
  future use.

  When you arrive at the hangar, there are a couple of vans there. It turns 
  out that the Columbians beat you to the punch and have killed all of the 
  officials near the plane. Keep your distance and pick off the four 
  Columbians guarding the plane with the Sniper Rifle.

  After killing them, enter the plane. The package is gone and the game 
  prompts you to go to one of the remaining vans outside the hangar. The van 
  has the Pan-Lantic logo on the side. You are then prompted to go to the 
  construction site on Staunton Island to see about getting the package 
  there.

  When you arrive there, you are given a hostile greeting by the Columbians. 
  There are ten Columbians guarding the lift up the building. They are hidden 
  around the blue walled area leading to the lift.

  Use the raised ground south of the walled area and the unfinished building 
  next to it and snipe them from above. You can also use the Rocket Launcher 
  to get those you can't see. Listen for their taunts to locate them. After 
  killing all of the Columbian guards, you are to take the lift.

  You are then treated to a cutscene of Claude going up the lift. He manages 
  to surprise Catalina and her partner Miguel. As Miguel gives the package to 
  Claude, Catalina shoots him and flees.

  When Claude turns around, he is met by Asuka who is upset over the death of 
  Kenji and has blamed the Cartel for his death (and is totally unaware of 
  Claude's duplicity in the matter). She is going to work over Miguel for 
  information and wants you to stop by later for additional work.

  After the cutscene, go back to Love Media to complete the mission.

  One of my contributors, Web, offered this alternative way to do this 
  mission.....

     "Instead of following the truck around and trying to protect, when it 
      takes off, just stay away from it. If you are far enough away from it, 
      it will not take any damage, maybe a little, but after a couple minutes 
      of waiting, you will get a message telling you to check out the exit of 
      the tunnel. Go across the lift bridge, and wait until the blip (truck) 
      moves a little, then get away from it again, go back to your hideout in 
      Staunton Island, and you will complete the mission without doing 
      anything. (One time the damage meter just popped up and I failed the 
      mission instantly. I do not know why that happened, but it only 
      happened once. Also, if you just stay near Donald Love's building, you 
      can restart the mission if that does happen.)"

  I played around with it and it works but the Securicar can get pretty 
  damaged in the process. But his suggestion inspired me to make some 
  changes.

  Something funny happened to me while I was taking notes for this mission. I 
  was going along the route and decided to park the car on the sidewalk at 
  Liberty Campus so I could type. While I was parked, a thug carjacked me and 
  sped off. Lucky me, I just happened to have my Rocket Launcher ready so I 
  aimed down the street and blew up the car that was taken from me (along 
  with the thief inside). Even better was the fact that I blew up the car in 
  front of a Police Car. And the cop didn't even give a shit. Serves the 
  thief right. Nobody carjacks from Claude and lives to tell the tale.....

0=========0
| The Plan \
0===========0

  The mission won't start until you drive near the parked Securicar that has 
  the Old Oriental Gentleman in it. This also gives you an excellent 
  opportunity to get a Securicar for the Industrial Import Export Garage. 

  Just like in "Van Heist" (Joey Leone), the game needs to spawn Securicars 
  because of the special Securicar you need to protect. So wander around 
  Staunton Island (don't get too close to the parked Securicar otherwise you 
  start the mission) and find a Securicar. Then jack it and take it back to 
  the garage. Then go back to Staunton Island, get another Yakuza Stinger, 
  and go to the parked Securicar to start the mission.

  The path the Securicar takes is:

     >>Down the main road through Bedford Point to Belleville Park.
     >>Then it turns left then right and goes down the road through Aspatria 
       and turns right at the Stadium Entrance.
     >>Then it turns left down the main road (between the Stadium and Liberty 
       Campus) and turns right at the intersection in Rockford.
     >>Then it goes into the Porter Tunnel where it turns left at the 
       intersection and turns left at the next one to go to Shoreside Vale.
     >>Then it exits the tunnel next to the Airport and goes up the road 
       until it reaches the AM Petroleum Company (Shoreside Vale) at Pike 
       Creek where it will be safe and the mission ends.

  Partway through the mission, the Columbians will attack the vehicle with 
  Cartel Cruisers and with gunmen posted at various places along the path.

  Believe it or not, if you just sit there by Love Media and let the 
  Securicar go on its own, it will suffer little damage (unless it tries to 
  plow through traffic). However, for some reason, it will not exit the 
  tunnel (at the Airport) unless you move near the Airport (by going over the 
  drawbridge). If you decide to go far ahead and wait at the tunnel exit, the 
  Securicar will not enter the tunnel at Staunton Island.

  In addition, if you decide to "ambush the ambushers" before getting the 
  Securicar to start, it won't work. The designers made it so the Columbians 
  appear only when the Securicar gets to within a certain distance from them.

  As it turns out, the Cartel Cruisers end up doing little damage to the 
  Securicar. It's the gunmen posted along the route (wielding M-16s) that are 
  the most dangerous. While Web's strategy does work, I've come up with 
  another strategy that will allow you to succeed but with little damage to 
  the Securicar.

  The strategy is to go ahead of the Securicar and take down the gunmen as 
  they appear. Vanatorul DeVise's suggestion is to use the Bulletproof 
  Patriot you earned from the mission "Marked Man" (Ray Machowski). There are 
  ten Columbian gunmen to get rid of.

  First go down through Belleville Park and park the Yakuza Stinger on the 
  right sidewalk just past Uncle BJ's (the one under the Shoreside Lift 
  Bridge Loop) and by the front door of Semi Sportswear. When the first 
  gunmen appear, run over Gunman#1 ahead of you then turn left to do a circle 
  that will allow you to run over Gunman#2 and go north along the street to 
  the Stadium entrance.

  Gunman#3 is on the right side of the Stadium steps. Run him over and circle 
  toward the main road along Liberty Campus.

  Gunman#4 is standing on the right side of the road on the north part of 
  Liberty Campus. Run him over and continue to the Porter Tunnel Entrance.

  When at the tunnel entrance, exit your car and switch to your Sniper Rifle. 
  Snipe Gunman#5 at the top of the tunnel entrance. Get back in your car and 
  stop at the first intersection in the tunnel.

  When Gunman#6 appears at the intersection, drive-by him and proceed to the 
  tunnel exit at the Airport.

  After exiting the tunnel, park the car on the median and exit. Aim the 
  Sniper Rifle at the top of the tunnel exit you came from. When Gunman#7 
  appears, shoot him, get back in your car and then run over Gunman#8 at the 
  Airport intersection right by the construction cones.

  Right by the AM Petroleum Company (Shoreside Vale), on the left sidewalk 
  will be Gunman#9. When you run him over, turn right and run over Gunman#10 
  who will be on the right sidewalk.

  After that then all you have to do is wait for the Securicar to come by and 
  park at the AM Petroleum Company (Shoreside Vale). You can ignore the 
  Cruisers unless they manage to get lucky and really mess up the Securicar.

  Recently I played around here and found an interesting way to do this 
  mission. You can jump on top of the Securicar and do the mission from 
  there. Even though the game says you need a car to do this mission once you 
  manage to jump on top of the armored vehicle the mission will start.

  To jump on top of the vehicle, go directly south from the door when you 
  start the mission. You should see the bushes by the pillar near the 
  Securicar. Inside the bushes is an M-16 Weapon Icon (which will appear for 
  this mission only). Get inside the bushes and aim Claude toward the 
  Securicar. Jump onto the ledge then jump onto the Securicar. Move close to 
  the front and the mission will start.

  When doing the mission this way I suggest using the Rocket Launcher on the 
  Cartel Cruisers when they come up from behind. Use the Sniper Rifle on the 
  gunmen. Even though you are on top of a moving vehicle, if you zoom in all 
  the way, the sight will still move slowly enough to allow you to precisely 
  aim on the gunmen as you approach them.

  However, when in the tunnel you will be knocked off when the tunnel dips as 
  you get near Francis International Airport. Just run up the tunnel far 
  enough to get the "Welcome to Shoreside Vale" message, get up on the tunnel 
  sidewalk, and stop. If you kept the damage to the Securicar to a minimum 
  you can just let it go on its own from here.

  If you thought of moving Claude onto the hood of the vehicle to drop him 
  low enough to keep him from getting knocked off don't bother. For some 
  reason when you put him on the hood the game will think he will be in front 
  of the Securicar and he will lose armor and health. Unless you move him 
  quickly back onto the top of the vehicle Claude will die and you will fail 
  the mission.

  Regardless of method, after the Securicar parks safely inside the AM 
  Petroleum Company (Shoreside Vale) building the mission is successfully 
  completed.

  During one attempt, I got the Securicar and made my way to the street. I 
  barely poked my nose out from the AMCO entrance and I get hit by a vehicle. 
  A Rhino. So my mission ends before I can begin. Now that's just wrong.

  I've had several people write to me saying that I should destroy the Police 
  Vehicles surrounding the place first before grabbing the decoy vehicle. 
  This is not a good idea. I found that if you do this the Police Vehicles 
  that chase you are mostly going to be the Barracks OL and the Rhinos which 
  is what you DON'T want. If you leave the Police Vehicles alone then the 
  Police Vehicles that chase you are primarily going to be the Police Cars 
  and Enforcers which are easier to deal with.

  And I came up with a much better place to wait out the Police.

0===========0

  When you reach the AM Petroleum Company (Shoreside Vale) area, you should 
  see some Police Vehicles (Enforcers and Police Cars) parked around the 
  perimeter of the building. As stated above, you should leave them alone.

  Next, park your car in the entranceway then enter the Decoy Vehicle. When 
  you get inside you will be hit with a 6-Star Wanted Rating. However, the 
  vehicles that will be chasing you are mostly going to be the Enforcers and 
  Police Cars you passed up.

  Instead of going out the way you came in, hang a right and jump off of the 
  ramp to get to the street below. Head toward the Shoreside Lift Bridge. As 
  you turn south and head toward the three-way intersection for the Airport 
  entrance, veer left slightly and into the oncoming lanes.

  Once you get past the Sumo billboard and the overhead road signs, veer left 
  and off the road between the large tree and the start of the tunnel exit. 
  Stay on the grass and continue toward the Shoreside Lift Bridge.

  Next, go underneath the Shoreside Lift Bridge and park the Securicar next 
  to the Flame-Thrower Weapon Icon. From this point on the Police can't touch 
  you and you can just sit and wait.

  However, if a Police Vehicle does chase you under the bridge, stand still 
  and wait for the officers to exit their car. Then drive-by them when they 
  approach.

  Once the timer runs out, the mission is complete.

  All of the action takes place in Shoreside Vale. The Yakuza ambush point is 
  at the Undercover Storage company in Pike Creek. The three death squads are 
  located at Cochrane Dam, Cedar Grove, and Pike Creek. If you thought about 
  taking them out from a distance with a Rocket Launcher, forget about it. 
  Doing so will fail the mission. You HAVE to lure them to the Yakuza.

  When you start the mission, grab the Yakuza Stinger parked nearby. When you 
  get to Pike Creek, you will activate to first death squad. Lure it to the 
  ambush point. If you get too far ahead, you will lose them and fail the 
  mission.

  When you successfully lure them to the ambush point, use the ramp for 
  PKC-J14 to get out of the way, jumping down into the street below, and let 
  the Yakuza do their work. If you wreck the car, go to the nearby Fudge 
  Packing Corp. to get another car (if you completed the Suburban Import 
  Export Garage list).

  Lure the other two death squads to the ambush point. When the last of the 
  squads are killed, the mission is completed.

  Had a gentleman named xX-G-MaN-Xx point out something that should have been 
  obvious in the beginning.

  I also had another reader, Mike Unger, point out that after destroying 
  several of the stands you will be chased by a Cartel Cruiser. But it 
  usually doesn't give much trouble.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0===========0

  There are nine stands throughout Liberty City. When you destroy the first 
  one, you have eight minutes to destroy the other eight stands before the 
  Cartel warn their pushers. There are two stands on Portland Island, five 
  stands in Staunton Island, and two in Shoreside Vale.

  What xX-G-MaN-Xx suggested is to drive around Liberty City and get the 
  blips to appear on the radar first before destroying the first stand. This 
  will make things easier as you progress through the mission.

  The two stands in Portland (and the order I am going to destroy them in) 
  is:

     >>[1] - In the front of St. Marks Park in St. Marks.
     >>[2] - Across the street from the entrance to Portland Docks.

  One of the stands on Portland Island is in Mafia territory. Because of the 
  hostile Mafia and their powerful Shotguns I highly recommend using the 
  Bulletproof Patriot for this mission. If you were not able to save the 
  Bulletproof Patriot you can still do this mission.

  If you have the Patriot, you can just go up to the stands and ram them 
  without them doing any damage with gunfire (but you will damage the Patriot 
  by ramming the stands). If you don't have the Patriot, you can get out of 
  the car some distance from the stands and rocket them.

  To get the stand in Mafia territory without using the Patriot you will need 
  to go around the north edge of Portland Island and come up beside the late 
  Salvatore Leone's mansion. Get one of the two cars parked there and drive 
  up the the main fence. Jump up on top of the car and rocket the first 
  stand.

  Then get back in the car and go south alongside and behind the apartment 
  building and down the hill behind the SupaSave! Store. Then get back on the 
  road and head to the second stand.

  After destroying the second Portland Island stand drive on over to Staunton 
  Island and destroy the other five stands in this order:

     >>[3] - By the crystal sculpture at Crystal Park in Torrington.
     >>[4] - In the plaza across the street from the 20thC. Building in 
             Bedford Point.
     >>[5] - By Liberty Cathedral.
     >>[6] - In the Main Park in Belleville Park.
     >>[7] - In front of the building south of the Multistory Carpark in 
             Newport.

  Use the Rocket Launcher on all of them except [6] which you can quickly 
  smash with the Patriot (although you can rocket it from afar regardless of 
  whether or not you have the Patriot). Then drive over to Shoreside Vale to 
  get the last two:

     >>[8] - By the Francis International Airport Subway Entrance.
     >>[9] - In front of Hope Medical College in Pike Creek.

  Destroy these two and the mission is successfully completed. Park the 
  Bulletproof Patriot at your Wichita Gardens garage for later use (if you 
  have it and use it).

  One of my readers, Liwei Wu, came up with another way to doing this 
  mission.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0===========0

  What the game wants you to do is get to a boat, go to a marker buoy near 
  the Airport (within three and a half minutes), and then blast the plane 
  from the sky. The problem with this is the fact that it is hard to hit the 
  plane from the boat and from the angle you have to take with the Rocket 
  Launcher.

  There are two different methods to do this mission depending on your style:

  The Fast Car Method
  *******************
  This method, suggested by Sal Hutton, was to take a fast car, like the 
  Yakuza Stinger parked by the elevator where you started the mission, and 
  drive over to the Airport tarmac.

  Near the north end of the South Runway are two groups of Columbians (three 
  men and one Cartel Cruiser per group). Keep far enough away, exit your car, 
  switch to your Sniper Rifle, and kill all six Columbians. If you get too 
  close, a couple of Columbians will enter one of the Cruisers and confront 
  you.

  Next, drive over near one of the two Cruisers, get out, and switch to your 
  Rocket Launcher. Now stand to either the left or right side of the Main 
  Runway and aim the Launcher down the runway near the center.

  When the plane lands on the runway, rocket it. In the process of destroying 
  the plane you get a 4-Star Wanted Rating. Get back to your car and collect 
  all eight packs then go between the runways and to the Predator waiting 
  there at the end of the path.

  Take the boat and go back to Staunton Island. Get as close as you can to 
  the Construction Site and beach the craft. Then jack a nearby car and go to 
  the site.

  The Rhino Method
  ****************
  This method, suggested to me by Liwei Wu, was to take the Rhino to the 
  Airport instead of a fast car.

  One problem with that is that the Rhino is slow and you need to get into 
  position within three and a half minutes. To overcome this you will have to 
  use the Tank Gun Boost (turning the turret around and firing it to gain 
  speed). Use it occasionally while on the road leading to the Airport and 
  use it constantly when on the Airport grounds.

  When you get to the north end of the South Runway where the two groups of 
  Columbians are then all you need to do is just run into the Cartel Cruisers 
  and goons.

  After dealing with both groups, drive the Rhino halfway down the runway 
  then stop and and get out.

  There are two things you need to know about using the Rhino for this 
  mission. First, if you try to let the Dodo run into the tank and make it 
  explode, you will fail the mission because the Dodo will go right THROUGH 
  the tank. Second, you CANNOT use the turret gun on the Dodo either. The 
  shells will ust go right through the airplane. You need to get out and use 
  the Rocket Launcher on the Dodo when it lands on the runway.

  After rocketing the Dodo, and getting the 4-Star Wanted Rating, pick up all 
  eight packages then re-enter the Rhino. One major advantage to using the 
  tank is that the Police vehicles will simply explode against your vehicle 
  as you drive back to the Construction Site.

  When you arrive at the Construction Site, regardless of method, you open 
  the cutscene "Ransom". Claude finds that Asuka and Miguel are dead and 
  Maria missing. He also finds a note.....

     "I've got your precious Maria. If you don't want her face to look like 
      she fell out with the butcher bring $500,000 to the Villa at Cedar 
      Grove."

  $45,000.

  And the completion of Asuka's missions. There is one more Main Story 
  mission left but I will tie up some loose ends first. I will now go back to 
  Wichita Gardens and save at my hideout there so I can get started with.....

  I had a gentleman named Shaun recommend to me another method using the 
  Rhino and I tried it out. It worked well enough to put into the guide.

  I also had a reader, Lindsey Kids, make an additional suggestion concerning 
  the Rhino:

     "i know i am a little late getting to GTA3, but i noticed that you said 
      on the mission "Uz-I Money" that you have to store a tank at the 
      Staunton Island place, the game remembers the place of tanks, so if you 
      just leave it there near your hideout, you can pick it up at any time."

0=========0
| The Plan \
0===========0

  There are two ways to do this mission.....

  The BulletProof Patriot
  ***********************
  Take your Patriot and pick up the mission. When you start, you have two and 
  a half minutes to drive-by 20 Purple Nines. One of the problems with this 
  mission is that when you start drive-bying, you will get accosted by the 
  Hoods Rumpo XL vans that roam the Gardens. This will make things difficult 
  because they will do damage to your Patriot and throw off your aim.

  But there is a place where you can drive-by and not worry about the Hoods 
  Rumpos. There is a stretch of road that runs from your hideout to the 
  parking lot behind your hideout. Just go up and down this stretch of road 
  to claim your victims. Since your Patriot is bulletproof, they can shoot it 
  up as much as they want and not do any damage.

  The Rhino
  *********
  Shaun wrote this to me commenting on "Uz-I Money".....

     "On Uz-I $, the tank cannon counts as a drive-by killing.  Just drive
      around shooting everything. If your shot hits a billboard, it will
      explode killing everyone nearby.  If you blow up a car, and Purples who
      die in the explosion count as kills.

  I tried this out and it works pretty well. This is a nice method to use if 
  you were able to acquire a Rhino earlier in the game. The only place to 
  save the Rhino is at the Staunton Island garage so it will take some time 
  to get the tank to the mission pick-up point. Just go around the area and 
  use your Tank Gun to claim your victims.

  After you get the last Purple Nine, the mission is completed. If you used 
  the Rhino, go and park it back at the Staunton Island garage so you can use
  it later.

  Portland.

  Don't worry about the Mafia when you arrive at St. Marks. Their hostility 
  has been turned off for this mission so all you have to do is get the car 
  into the garage.

  After defusing the bomb, take the car back to Shoreside Vale. Repair the 
  car at the Pay 'N' Spray there and carefully drive it back to the parking 
  lot. You have to get it back there with no damage whatsoever. Any damage 
  and you will have to take it back to the Pay 'N' Spray.

  pieces.

  After picking up a few pieces, you will attract the attention of the Cops. 
  Head left at the intersection then right at the next to make your way to 
  the garage picking up platinum as you go.

  If you can do this right, you can get all of the pieces you need in one 
  run. If not, use the Pay 'N' Spray to repair your van before getting any 
  more. Once you have acquired at least 30 pieces to the garage, the mission

| Overview \

  King Courtney is in need of a good driver and challenges Claude to a 
  checkpoint race against three other hopefuls.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0==========0

  Rocket Launcher (optional).

0==========0
| Prep Work \
0============0

  Get a fast car, like a Yakuza Stinger, and save it at your garage 
  (optional). Have a Rhino saved at your garage (optional).

0======0
| Notes \
0========0

  Got a new tip that worked pretty well from some named KWoBBS2.....

     "In the KC1. "Bling-Bling Scramble" (King Courtney) mission, I found 
      that using the old Rhino works especially well...blowing up your 
      competition, then taking your good sweet time hitting each check 
      point."

  And I recently got another suggestion by Hari Vikram that works pretty good 
  too.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0===========0

  When you get the mission, take your fast car (or Rhino) and drive to the 
  blue circle near the Liberty Memorial Coliseum and turn south before 
  entering. When you stop in the blue circle, you will see the other three 
  cars come up to challenge you: a Patriot, a Cheetah, and a Bobcat.

  When the race starts, you must be the first to a checkpoint. You have to 
  have more firsts than the other cars to successfully complete the race. 

  If you get more firsts than the other cars when the last checkpoint is 
  taken, you will then successfully complete the mission.

  Of course, with the Rhino, you can just blow up your competition at the 
  starting line and get all of the checkpoints for yourself.

  Then there's this method suggested to me by Hari Vikram:

  Get the Rocket Launcher and make sure you have it ready when you enter your 
  car. This method works best if you use a real fast car like the Yakuza 
  Stinger.

  When the race starts speed over to the first checkpoint but stop just 
  before you touch it. Get out of the car and aim the Rocket Launcher. If you 
  got to the checkpoint fast enough, the other cars should be way behind you. 
  This will give you enough time to stop, get out, aim, and blast the other 
  cars to bits. Then get back in your car and get all 15 checkpoints. If you 
  manage to blow up your car in the process just go get another one and 
  proceed.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=========0

  $1,000 times the numbers of checkpoints acquired (up to a maximum of 
  $15,000).

  King Courtney wants Claude to go over to Hepburn Heights to kill some 
  Diablos who have been dissing Queen Lizzy.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0==========0

  Uz-I (optional).

0==========0
| Prep Work \
0============0

  You may want to acquire a Diablo Stallion, and store it in one of your 
  Safehouses, prior to doing this mission for use in the next one.

0======0
| Notes \
0========0

  None.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0===========0

  When you start the mission, King Courtney will send over a couple of guys 
  to ride with you. They come up in a Perennial and the escorts are there to 
  make sure you don't leave the vehicle. They also give you an Uz-I to help 
  you out. Then make your way to Hepburn Heights to kill the Diablos.

  You need to kill ten of them to successfully complete the mission. If you 
  drive-by them, you will attract their attention and they will try to yank 
  you from the car. Since your car is a lousy Perennial, they can do that 
  pretty easy. If they yank you from the car, you fail the mission.

  The best thing to do is to run them over. Most times they won't come after 
  you because they just think of you as just another stupid driver. After 
  killing ten Diablos, make your way back to the blue circle in Yardie turf 
  to complete the mission.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=========0

  $10,000.

  Plus, the Diablos will now be hostile to you when you travel through 
  Hepburn Heights.

| Overview \
0===========0

  King Courtney wants Claude to steal some gang cars so they can do some hits 
  on rival turf: a Mafia Sentinel, a Diablo Stallion, and a Yakuza Stinger. 
  He is to take them to a garage in Newport.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0==========0

  None.

0==========0
| Prep Work \
0============0

  You may want to find and get the gang cars BEFORE doing the following 
  missions:

    >>Mafia Sentinel - "Sayonara Salvatore" (Asuka Kasen).
    >>Diablo Stallion - "Uz-I Rider" (King Courtney).

  And save them in your garages. This will make this mission easier because 
  you won't have to deal with hostile gangs. Thanks to Scott Exeter for that 
  suggestion.

0======0
| Notes \
0========0

  None.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0===========0

  If you followed the earlier suggestion by Scott Exeter then simply take 
  your gangcars from your garages and drive them to the dropoff point in 
  Newport.

  If you didn't then this is how you go about acquiring them:

  For the Mafia Sentinel, use the Porter Tunnel and turn left onto the 
  concrete embankment when you exit. The plan is to go behind the late 
  Salvatore Leone's mansion and get one parked in the front. Then go back 
  down the hillside north of the club and back to the garage to drop off the 
  car. This will prevent you from being shot up by the now-hostile Mafia.

  For the Diablo Stallion, head into Hepburn Heights and jack one. Despite 
  the Diablo hostility this isn't hard to do.

  For the Yakuza Stinger, head over to Asuka's Condo and take the one parked 
  there.

  If you damaged up the car too much, head over to the Pay 'N' Spray to have 
  it repaired before depositing. Or, if you don't mind a little cheating, you 
  can do what Hadley Box suggests:

     "On 'Gangcar Roundup', you say you have to have the cars in mint 
      condition to be accepted by the garage, which is true. I'm guessing you 
      already know that if you input the health cheat inside a car the car 
      will go back to its original unharmed state, but it will still look 
      the same. So this is handy because if you get one of the 3 gangcars, 
      and mess it up real bad (almost to the point of it setting on fire) you 
      can just drive to the garage, input the health code and then the garage 
      will accept the car!"

  When you deposit the last car, the mission is successfully completed.

  King Courtney wants Claude to get the stash from an old car in Bedford 
  Point for him.....

  Main Gun (Rhino) (optional), Rocket Launcher (optional), Grenades 
  (optional), Molotovs (optional), Uz-I (optional).

0======0
| Notes \
0========0

  Got some information from Danny Williamson.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0===========0

  The car is parked in the Liberty Tree Offices above ground parking lot and 
  you have a minute and a half to get to the car. Go west from the phone and 
  hang a left going south along the four lane road that runs along the shore. 
  When you get to the car, you find a letter inside.....

     "I hear you've been a busy boy. Well I've been a busy girl. I think it's 
      time you witnessed the real power of 'SPANK'! Besos y fuderes, 
      Catalina, xxx. PS: DIE PEEG DOG, DIE!!"

  At that point, a van shows up near the main entrance and a SPANKed-up 
  madman exits. He has explosives attached to him and he will make his way to 
  your car and blow himself up against it.

  There are a total of four vans that need to be destroyed. However, as Danny 
  Williamson pointed out, there is already a van in the parking lot. Destroy 
  it first before entering the car to make things easier.

  When you regain control, turn the car around and ram the van near the main 
  entrance with it then get out. The impact plus the exploding bomber should 
  be enough to destroy it. Then run out into the street and go up the stairs 
  by the underground entrance.

  There are an additional three vans (four total) that release an unlimited 
  number of suicide bombers that must be destroyed (plus any leftover 
  bombers) to complete the mission. Use the Rocket Launcher to destroy the 
  vans. Depending on where the remaining bombers are, you can use any other 
  weapon do destroy them. If they are on the far side, use the Rocket 
  Launcher. If they are close, use either the Grenades or the Molotovs.

  If you have the Rhino, this becomes easier. When you get the tank on 
  Staunton Loop (West) going south, use the Tank Gun Boost to increase speed. 
  When you regain control after the cutscene, get out and quickly get into 
  your tank. The bombers won't try to yank you from the Rhino, they will just 
  explode against it so you are safe. Then use the Main Gun (rotate the gun 
  instead of moving the tank) to destroy the vans and bombers to complete the 
  mission.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=========0

  $10,000.

  And you have now completed all of King Courtney's missions.

  However, the phone will still ring and there will be a blue mission circle 
  by it. This is so you can repeat "Bling-Bling Scramble" and try to get a 
  better score.

  In addition, the Yardies will be now hostile to you, the main reason I 
  saved this one before the last Main Story Mission. Go back to your Wichita 
  Gardens hideout and save before doing the last mission.

  At this point in the guide, I am at 99% completion and ready to do the 
  final Main Story Mission of the game.....

Catalina is the woman who left Claude for dead at the beginning of the game.
She has also aligned herself with the Yardies and organized death squads to
hunt Claude down. She has one mission, the last mission, and it can be picked
up at the "C" at Cedar Grove.

You should also have at least $500,000 to do this mission but at this point
it is not a problem since you should have at least ten times that amount
from doing everything else beforehand.

  When Claude arrives at the Villa, he is confronted by Catalina.....

     "The real question is, did you turn up to rescue Maria or to get me 
      back? Well I got news for you, shooting you will be a pleasure but 
      dating you was only business. You are muy peccinno amigo. Throw over 
      the cash."

  After looking the money over.....

     "You have been a busy boy! But you haven't learned, I'm not to be 
      trusted. Kill the idiot."

  But Claude overpowers his would be assassin and thus the final act 
  begins.....

  Rocket Launcher, Sniper Rifle.

  Have a fast car in your Wichita Gardens garage (optional). Have the 
  Bulletproof Patriot saved at your Wichita Gardens garage (optional).

0======0
| Notes \
0========0

  Dennis Zoetebier came with an alternate method using the Bulletproof 
  Patriot.

  I also had Charles Wooters come up with an interesting observation. He 
  noted that after you destroy Catalina, and the mission timer disappears, 
  that you can do whatever you want without getting any Wanted Ratings. 
  However, as I played around with this, is that I found out that this 
  actually begins when the mission starts.

  I also had one reader, Robbert Houtman, write that, because he didn't have 
  the Rocket Launcher Weapon Icon at the Wichita Gardens Safehouse, he made a 
  run for Phil Cassidy's Army Surplus to get Rocket Launchers then made his 
  way back to the Cochrane Dam area. He still had about three minutes left to 
  do the rest of the mission.

  Plus reader Karsten Lamla came up with a different weapon to take down the 
  helicopter.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0===========0

  When the mission begins, run as quickly to the backside of the Villa as 
  fast as you can. You can't go back and fight these guards because you have 
  been stripped of all of your weapons. You also have seven minutes to get to 
  where Catalina has taken Maria, Cochrane Dam, and kill her. Run along the 
  backside and go to the garage that has a Cruiser and Body Armor inside it. 
  Then get into the Cruiser, get to the main gate, and run over the guards. 

  When you exit the Villa compound, you will see a chopper fly overhead. When 
  you regain control again, veer off the road and go into Wichita Gardens (go 
  over the small wall near the light-post). If the Cruiser survives the 
  plunge, go to your Safehouse. If not, grab another car and go to your 
  Safehouse. Get all of your Weapon Icons and go into your garage to get your 
  fast car.

  Use the Gardens Shortcut and make your way to the dam's entrance. Cut 
  across the grass on your right when you near the hairpin turn, stop when 
  you get back to the street, and get out (regardless of whether you use the 
  Bulletproof Patriot or not).

  Use your Rocket Launcher and take out the two Cruisers blocking the 
  entrance. From your vantage point, you can only see one but they can't fire 
  on you either. Just fire on the one Cruiser and the explosion will take 
  them both out.

  Get back into your vehicle and drive to the Sniper Rifle Icon at the turn 
  near the base of the dam. Use the Rocket Launcher again and destroy the two 
  Cruisers in front of you then use the Sniper Rifle on any other Columbians 
  you see.

  Get back into your car and go to the first set of containers and get out. 
  Rocket the Barracks OL and snipe the other guards. Go back into your car 
  and go to next set of containers just past the exploded Barracks OL. Get 
  out and rocket the other Barracks OLs and snipe the remaining guards. Get 
  back into your car and proceed forward.

  If you have the Bulletproof Patriot then just barge in after destroying the 
  second set of Cruisers. They can't hurt you with their guns. Just run some 
  of them over and get to the second set of containers.

  Just as you get past the second set of containers, a cutscene ensues which 
  shows Catalina entering a helicopter. This helicopter launches rockets at 
  you when you are at the base of the dam. So after the cutscene finishes, 
  turn around and head back up the road then stop near CCD-J13.

  The helicopter will go in a circular pattern going down toward the dam to 
  release its rockets then going back up near where you are at. When the 
  helicopter heads in your direction, rocket it to destroy it. According to 
  reader Karsten Lamla you can also destroy the helicopter with the M-16.

  When the helicopter is destroyed, regardless of weapon, you kill Catalina 
  and the timer will disappear.

  Switch back to your Sniper Rifle and aim at the top of the dam building. 
  Believe it or not, you can actually see Maria and her captors from your 
  position when you zoom in with your Sniper Rifle. Take out the Columbians 
  that you can see then reenter your car, go back to the dam base, and stop 
  by the second set of containers.

  It should be noted that this doesn't work on the Xbox version since the 
  Sniper Rifle can't zoom that far. You will have to sneak up the stairs to 
  take out Maria's guards at the top of the building.

  Once back at the second set of containers, snipe any guards you see then go 
  to the stairs that leads to the top of the roof of the dam building. Take 
  out any remaining guards then walk up to Maria and rescue her to complete 
  the mission.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=========0

  $1,000,000 ($500,000 plus the ransom money).

  Plus, you've unlocked the Rhino at Phil Cassidy's Army Surplus. If you 
  haven't acquired the tank for the Emergency Crane list, take it from the 
  Army Surplus and deposit it to complete the list.

  This should also get you the.....

If you place the PS2 version of GTA3 in a computer and look around on the
disc you may find a file called "american.gxt". If you open it in a text 
editor you will find all sorts of garbage characters. But if you manage to
clean out some of the garbage, you may find some interesting stuff.

Stuff like text from missions and phone calls that were abandoned in the 
early stages of development but were left within this file because the 
programmers could slow down the progress of creation if they tried to remove 
it.

I copied some of the best stuff and cleaned it up so they can be presented
here:

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Here's an alternate version of what the angry store owner says to you during
"Shima" (Kenji Kasen):

Owner: "I can't pay you and I wouldn't pay you if I could! Some young gang 
        just jacked out the place! They took everything! You guys are 
        useless. What kind of Yakuza are YOU anyway...? This ain't what I pay 
        you goons for. If I wanted this kind of protection I'd have used the 
        god damn Police service."

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Here's an alternate version of what Maria says at the end of the game:

Maria: "I broke a nail, and my hair's ruined. Can you believe it? This one
        cost me fifty dollars! I was so scared, but then I thought to myself, 
        you're a big girl now. Oh we're going to have such fun, cause, you 
        know, my sister said she wanted to come to stay with her two kids, 
        because her husband's playing around again and..XXXX"

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I wonder where this was supposed to go:

"BETRAYED BY HIS LOVER CATALINA AND LEFT FOR DEAD. CONVICTED AND SENTENCED,
HE BEGINS HIS JOURNEY TO LIBERTY CITY PENITENTIARY. BUT ONLY ONE THOUGHT
BURNS IN HIS CRIMINAL MIND......REVENGE!"

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

This is only a part of some of the interesting stuff that is found in the
"american.gxt" file. It's not an easy thing to sort through but it is cool to
look around and see all of the stuff they left behind "on the cutting room
floor".

And that, my friends, completes the guide. I sincerely hope that this
document has helped you as much as I had fun playing the game. Now it is time
to close the book but there is one more thing to do first.....
