    **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].

0=====================================>

    **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 then please ask for 
    my permission first 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 FAQs and 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 has given me the job
stability I did not have much of prior to employment there. This also led to
personal stability that allows me to write and maintain the guides I have
built.

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. Additionally, 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 Analog Video enthusiast. I hack most of 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 on their
"RGB + Video Discussions" forum area from time to time.

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. We
are also a group of hackers and electronics enthusiasts.

I am also a regular forum poster at GameFAQs, an occasional poster at
AtariAge, Digital Press, GTA Forums, and Video Game Saga. I am also a member
of The MoFaT (a members only message board set up by "Grand Theft Auto: Vice
City" players who met on the Vice City message boards at GameFAQs).

Outside of gaming, my interests include "Godzilla" (I have been a G-Fan since
the age of ten) and "Red Dwarf" (I own all eight series plus the "Back to
Earth" mini-series on DVD). I am also a long time soundtrack collector with
many titles in my possession.

As far as favorite sports teams go, my teams are the San Antonio Spurs (NBA)
[the local team], the Denver Broncos (NFL) [although I live in Texas, I am
originally from Colorado Springs, Colorado] and the Air Force Falcons (NCAA
Football).

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 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 "Grand Theft Auto III" 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 more than twenty memory cards for my PlayStation 2.
Many of the memory cards are dedicated to "Grand Theft Auto III", "Grand
Theft Auto: Vice City" (Original Version (1.40)), "Grand Theft Auto: San
Andreas" (which uses up fifteen 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 then 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 tour guide sections.

When I first posted my initial version of my Vice City guide in 2003, 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, it
may 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 then
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 then 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.

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].

  >>Rampages will be identified with an "R".
    --Examples: Rampage [XXX-R4].

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

| I.6. "Grand Theft Auto III"                                        [GRTH] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

"Grand Theft Auto III" is the successor to the moderately successful "Grand
Theft Auto 2". 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 then 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 platform), just
a "Game Complete" screen. Very disappointing.

Still, I still liked GTA2 despite its 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 Game World (long
gone) 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 fifteen 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 "Grand Theft Auto III" was just the beginning. "Grand Theft Auto: Vice
City" would later outdo GTA3 on many levels and then "Grand Theft Auto: San
Andreas" far surpassed both GTA3 and Vice City combined.

In addition, both "Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories" and "Grand Theft
Auto: Vice City Stories" filled in more details on their respective cities
and histories.

And, of course, "Grand Theft Auto IV" (along with the additional chapters
"The Lost and Damned" and "The Ballad of Gay Tony") continues the tradition
using an alterante version of Liberty City and a whole new game engine the
improves on everything that was started with "Grand Theft Auto III".

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 then this
means that it is also version 1.40.

If Rockstar had made any major changes to "Grand Theft Auto III" 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.

  The graphics for the PlayStation 2 version of GTA3 are pretty clean and the 
  game runs very well with no sudden pop-ins or texture loading problems 
  (when running off the DVD-ROM). The sound is pretty decent as well.

  Although I do not have a PlayStation 3 at this time, it is my understanding 
  that most of the PlayStation 2 library, including the GTA games, runs 
  pretty well on the older PlayStation 3's that have Backwards Compatibility. 
  It is unclear if Backwards Compatibility will be re-implemented on the 
  newer PS3 units (including the PS3 Slim).

0====================0
| Xploder HDTV Player \
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 a little glitchy because of "line meshing issues". This is 
  because the intro is actually a "film" instead of using the game graphics. 
  It is to my understanding that XHDTV doesn't handle film based stuff well 
  and that results in the jittery looking intro.

  But this is actually a minor problem since you can easily skip the opening 
  credits by pressing the X Button. After you get past the intro then 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.

0=========0
| HDLoader \
0=====================================>

  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).

  "Grand Theft Auto III", 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 (that is assuming 
  if it still works - thankfully you can install games onto the hard drive 
  from a PC as an option).

  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 and the fact that the initial 
  load is much faster, there is practically no speed difference in any given 
  situation within GTA3.

  However, it is still nice to play it off the hard drive.

  But.....

  Before you start playing GTA3 off of the hard drive there is something 
  *VERY IMPORTANT* you must do first.

  After installing the game onto the HDD, highlight GTA3 on the Game List 
  menu and press SELECT. This will bring up the Game Compatibility Settings. 
  It will look like this:

      Slow HDD access:                 No
      Disable DVD9 support:            No
      Kill HDL After launch:           No
      Date/timefix 2:                  No
      Date/timefix 3:                  No
      Disable network support:         No
      Disable CzC patch:               No
      Soul Calibut 2 / Suikoden V:     No

  As you can see all of the default settings are set to "No". You need to 
  make the following changes to make sure that GTA3 works perfectly with 
  HDLoader:

      Slow HDD access:                 No
      Disable DVD9 support:            No
      Kill HDL After launch:          YES <----------
      Date/timefix 2:                 YES <----------
      Date/timefix 3:                  No
      Disable network support:         No
      Disable CzC patch:               No
      Soul Calibut 2 / Suikoden V:     No

  Although I kill HDL as a precaution it is the timefix option that is most 
  important. If you do not change this setting then, if you decide to make 
  new game saves, you will create one with a corrupted time stamp.

  Because of how HDL does things it can cause problems with timestamping in 
  regard to game saves. If you create a new game save with a corrupted 
  timestamp then you will cause the game to crash when you go to pause the 
  game.

  The program checks the game saves when you press Start and when it sees one 
  with a timestamp out of what it is expecting then the game dies and you 
  cannot use the game saves anymore until you delete them from the memory 
  card.

  Interesting enough, if you do not make these changes, then you can still 
  make game saves but only if you overwrite an existing one. Still, it is 
  best to make these tweaks just to make sure nothing bad happens when 
  playing GTA3.

  The graphics on the Xbox version are better than the PS2 version and 
  animate very well. In addition, the Xbox version has greater draw distance 
  and is much brighter than the PS2 version. Oh and let's not forget 
  Progressive Scan (Component Video only) for the Xbox version.

  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.

  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 Buttons.

  However, GTA3 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 then 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.

0=============0
| Xbox Softmod \
0=====================================>

  Like with the PS2, you can also modify the Xbox to allow for hard drive 
  installation of games using a softmod. I've had one reader, Velid Sales, 
  write to me about doing it to his Xbox and that GTA3 runs pretty well this 
  way.

  At this time I have not softmodded any of my Xboxes but it is something I 
  am considering doing in the future now that MicroSoft no longer has Xbox 
  Live support for the Original Xbox.

| Original Xbox and PS2 Version Differences \
0===========================================================>

  There are only a couple of differences between the PS2 and Xbox versions:

    >>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.

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

    >>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.

0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

"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, then 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.

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 then 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

      is obtained by successfully completing the Ambulance Mission (detailed 
      later).

      Attack Button is used to swing at your target.

      When using Grenades then 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) then you use the Attack Button to shoot. Use the Target 
      Button in conjunction to aim at your enemy.

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

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 completion of 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.

| I.10. "Claude Speed"                                               [CLUD] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

In "Grand Theft Auto III" the main character is never mentioned by name
(except as "Fido" by Maria Leone). Originally you were to have the option to
name him just like you could in the first "Grand Theft Auto" game.

But Rockstar decided to drop that idea so the main character went un-named.
And most people on the gaming forums called him Fido (because that is what
Maria Leone calls him later in the game) just to give him an identity.

And, in earlier versions of this guide, I had given him another name: Alex.
This was to identify him better within the guide and give him a little
personality.

However, in "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas", the main character of GTA3 made
an appearance as he hooked up with Catalina. And she called him Claude
(although he didn't speak and she didn't use his last name).

But Claude also appeared in "Grand Theft Auto 2" and his full name, as is
listed in the credits in the game manual, is Claude Speed. I would later
change this guide to accommodate this revelation.

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!").

Some people have suggested that the Claude character that was used in GTA2 is
not the Claude that is in GTA3. In my opinion, that is correct.

In my eyes, GTA3 is a reboot of the "Grand Theft Auto" series. As Rockstar
restarted the series they recycled the city names from GTA1 (Liberty City,
Vice City, and San Andreas) and the Claude Speed name from GTA2.

Likewise, GTA IV is another reboot of the GTA series. As before, Rockstar has
recycled the city names from the previous series and has also recycled the
Lazlow character that has appeared in most of the GTA games plus the Claude
Speed outfit you can earn and wear.

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.

Special prompts will appear at either the upper left corner of the Main

Every metropolis has a Police force and Liberty City is no different.

When you do something bad near a Cop, like mugging a person, then 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. Listed below are the Wanted Ratings and what you can expect:

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

  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=====================================>

  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=====================================>

  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=====================================>

  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 completion of the mission "Last Requests" 
  (Salvatore Leone).

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

  After making mincemeat of the Police force, including the FBI, then 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 completion of the mission 
  "A Drop In The Ocean" (Donald Love).

In addition to all of the other cars you can take in Liberty City you can
also use Police Vehicles. The main reason for acquiring one is for the
Vigilante Mission which is explained later in the guide. In addition, some
have additional features and bonuses that can help you.

Below is the list of Police Vehicles you can use in Liberty City:

0===========0
| Police Car \
0=====================================>

  Found: On the street and at all Police Stations.
  Notes: You get five Shotgun shells when entering a Police Car. If you don't 
         already have a Shotgun then you can get a Shotgun with five shells.

0==============0
| SWAT Enforcer \
0=====================================>

  Found: During a 4-Star Wanted Rating and at the back of the Torrington 
         Police Station on Staunton Island
  Notes: You can get Body Armor when entering a SWAT Enforcer.

0========0
| FBI Car \
0=====================================>

  Found: During a 5-Star Wanted Rating.
  Notes: Can be used at a Pay 'N' Spray to get rid of a Wanted Rating.

0======0
| Rhino \
0=====================================>

  Found: During a 6-Star Wanted Rating - also unlocked at Phil Cassidy's Army 
         Surplus at the end of the Main Story Missions (unless you push it to 
         your Safehouse after completion of the mission "Arms Shortage" (Ray 
         Machowski)).

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

As noted above, you can drive a car, 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, then you are
Busted. Any mission you were doing at the time will be Failed.

When you are Busted then 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).

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

When you are Wasted then 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).

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

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

    >>[Xbox] - Black Button, Black Button, Left Trigger, Right Trigger,
               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 Targeting \
0=================================================>

  When locking onto targets with a gun (like a Pistol) while holding down 
  Target then 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=================================================>

  When you want to increase the speed of the often slow Rhino then rotate the 
  Main Gun 180 degrees so that 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. But you will jack up your 
  Wanted Ratings because you are usually destroying stuff behind you.

  According to reader Justin Castillo, this doesn't work well on the Xbox 
  version because, when you rotate the turret, you also rotate the camera. 
  While you can see what you are shooting at, you will not be able to see in 
  front of the tank.

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

  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, then 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 then I'd like to hear about it and how you did it so 
  I can put it in future revisions.

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

  If you have a bunch of Weapon Icons at your Portland Island Safehouse then 
  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.

| The Hooker Trick \
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.

  According to reader Justin Castillo, you can also do this with convertable 
  vehicles. Even though the car doesn't go up and down, you will still see a 
  health increase.

| I.18. 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 then 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 the mission "Rumble" (D-Ice) then 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 completion
of the mission "Rumble" (D-Ice) using the New Game option in the Options
menu. 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), then 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 the mission "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.

After the events of "Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories", here is what
has happened between then and now.....

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

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.....

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

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 re-open in a bigger and better location when the motion is
finally overturned.

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

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.....

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

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.

Toni Cipriani, a valued friend of the Salvatore Leone crime family, returns
from exile after killing a Made Man. After he arrives in Liberty City then he
begins an journey that will eventually bring Liberty City under Leone control
and bring peace to the local criminal underworld.

Temporarily, at least.....

0===================0
| Liberty City: 2001 \
0=====================================>

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, then 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 then 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 for your Safehouses)
and do Unique Stunt Jumps while driving around during "Give Me Liberty". But
you can't do Rampages or any vehicle based side-mission.

Just park the Kuruma (with 8-Ball inside) and jack another car to do other
stuff. When you are finished then go back to the parked Kuruma and go to the
Safehouse.

When you arrive at the Safehouse then 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 now
go to Luigi's.

When you arrive at Luigi's then you start the mission titled "Luigi's Girls".
After a brief introduction then 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 then 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 to
spawn Weapon Icons for your 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).

Since "Grand Theft Auto III" does not have an in-game map then it is
important to explore each region to know it better and find the landmarks
that are used to help locate items, Rampages, and Unique Stunt Jumps.

To this end I have constructed tour guides for each region. Starting at your
current Safehouse I guide you through the region and point out all of the
landmarks.

Many of the names for these landmarks are pretty straightforward, some are
referenced from the official strategy guide, some are made up to give them a
name to help find other objects, and some are referenced from the prequel
game "Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories".

With that said, let's go on.....

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

Now, that we're finally able to save the game, let's have a tour of this area
of Liberty City starting with the:

  >>Portland Island Safehouse
    *************************
      Location: (Northwest) Red Light District, indicated by a house on your 
                radar.
      Notes: This is where you can find your Weapon, Health, Adrenaline, 
             Police Bribe Icons, store a vehicle, and save your game.

Now let's go west to the street, jack a vehicle, and turn right at the nearby
three-way intersection then stop at the next three-way intersection.

At the northwest corner of this intersection you will see the wall for:

  >>Doorless Apartments (West)
    **************************
      Location: (West) Hepburn Heights.
      Notes: A couple of large apartment buildings situated behind a tall 
             wall that goes around them. They are called the Doorless 
             Apartments because there are no entrances on either building! 

             I wonder how people get in and out of this place.....

And at the east side of this intersection is:

  >>Misty's Building
    *****************
      Location: (South) Hepburn Heights.
      Notes: This is home to Misty, girlfriend to Joey Leone. Thankfully the 
             construction crew managed to put in an entrance for this place.

From here, turn left and stop at the next three-way intersection. At the east
side of this intersection is:

  >>Doorless Apartments (East)
    **************************
      Location: (East) Hepburn Heights.
      Notes: Another pair of large apartment buildings with no doors (why? I 
             don't know).

Now continue forward and follow the road curve going east then stop at the
intersection after it. At the south side of this intersection is:

  >>Borgnine Taxis
    **************
      Location: (South) Harwood.
      Notes: One of two taxi companies that operate in Liberty City.

And just ahead of you to the east is:

  >>HEAD Radio
    **********
      Location: (South) Harwood.
      Notes: One of the most popular radio stations in Liberty City transmits 
             from here.

From here, turn left and follow the road curve going east then go under the
bridge. Then stop at the next three-way intersection:

At the west side of this intersection is the:

  >>Harwood Fire Station
    ********************
      Location: Harwood.
      Notes: A Firetruck can often be found here and used for the Firetruck 
             Mission.

And at then southeast corner of this intersection is the:

  >>AMCO Gas Station
    ****************
      Location: Harwood.
      Notes: This is the only place on Portland Island to gas up your 
             vehicle.

From here, turn left then stop at the next intersection. At the north side of
this intersection is a dirt road that leads to the:

  >>Harwood Junkyard
    ****************
      Location: (North) Harwood.
      Notes: This is where the junk and trash from Liberty City ends up. The 
             Car Crusher is also located here and can be used to get extra 
             money when disposing of most vehicles.

At the east side of this intersection is a dirt road that leads to:

  >>8-Ball's Bomb Shop (St. Mark's)
    *******************************
      Location: (North) St. Mark's.
      Notes: This is where you can fit your vehicle with a bomb and leave a 
             nasty surprise for someone.

And at the southeast corner of this intersection is:

  >>Capital Autos
    *************
      Location: Harwood, just south of the Harwood Junkyard.
      Notes: The best deals in used cars can be found here.

From here, turn right and go through the next three-way intersection then
turn left at the next four-way intersection. Go up the hill and follow the
road curve going south then stop at the next four-way intersection.

At the east side of this intersection is a dirt road that leads to:

  >>Salvatore's Mansion
    *******************
      Location: (East) Portland Beach.
      Notes: This beautiful estate, overlooking Portland Rock, is where the 
             leader of the Leone crime family resides.

Now continue forward, through the next three-way intersection, and to the
road curve going west. When you get to this curve then look to your right to
find:

  >>Marco's Bistro
    **************
      Location: (Southeast) St. Mark's.
      Notes: One of the best Italian restaurants in Liberty City. "Eat 'til 
             you explode!"

Just after you finish the road curve then look to your left to find:

  >>Portland View El-Train Station
    ******************************
      Location: (North) Portland View, just southwest of Marco's Bistro.
      Notes: One of three train stations for the elevated track that goes 
             around Portland Island.

After that, continue forward to the next four-way intersection and turn
right. Go forward through the next three-way intersection and stop at the
next four-way intersection.

At the northeast corner of this intersection is:

  >>Cipriani's Ristorante
    *********************
      Location: (Central) St. Mark's.
      Notes: This is currently where Toni Cipriani lives with his mother. You 
             can always find a Karuma in the small parking lot here if you 
             need a car.

From here, continue forward through the next four-way intersection then turn
left at the next four-way intersection. Then stop at the next four-way
intersection.

At the southeast corner of this intersection is:

  >>The Ruins
    *********
      Location: St. Mark's.
      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 replacing pipes under the nearby street.

Now turn right then turn left at the next four-way intersection and stop at
the next three-way intersection. At the west side of this intersection is
the:

  >>Hepburn Heights El-Train Station
    ********************************
      Location: (East) Hepburn Heights.
      Notes: One of three train stations for the elevated track that goes 
             around Portland Island.

And going north from here will lead you to the:

  >>Porter Tunnel Entrance (Portland Island)
    ****************************************
      Location: (Northwest) Harwood.
      Notes: This is the Portland Island entrance to the controversial Porter 
             Tunnel project. At this point the construction is still not 
             finished and you won't be able to use it for awhile.

However, from this intersection, turn left and go through the next two
three-way intersections. As you continue forward then you will see off to
your left the:

  >>Red Light District Ammu-Nation
    ******************************
      Location: (East) Red Light District.
      Notes: One of two Ammu-Nations located in Liberty City. This is where 
             you can purchase weapons for use against your enemies or anybody 
             else who pisses you off.

Continue forward through the next three-way intersection then stop at the
three-way intersection that is just right after it and where this road ends.
At the south side of this intersection ahead of you is an alley that is also
the north end of the:

  >>Chinatown Shortcut
    ******************
      Location: (North) Chinatown.
      Notes: This alley is a real nice shortcut between Chinatown and the Red 
             Light District.

From here, turn left, go through the next four-way intersection and turn
right at the next four-way intersection. As you go forward then you will take
a gentle curve that angles southeast.

As you make this curve then look left to find the:

  >>SupaSave! Store
    ***************
      Location: (East) Portland View.
      Notes: The major supermarket on Portland Island. Bought out the 
             troubled Fidl store chain a couple of years back.

As you continue southeast then you will take another curve that angles south.
Right after this curve then you should see the entrance to Portland Docks to
your left. Go left through the entrance and you should find a large building
with several garage doors.

And this is the:

  >>Garage Building
    ***************
      Location: (Central) Portland Harbor.
      Notes: This large building is east of the entrance to the Portland 
             Docks area. It has an overhang and seven garage doors.

| II.6. Weapons and Other Helpful Items                              [WOHT] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

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

The description of the weapons and items are listed in this chapter and their
locations revealed in each major area of Liberty City.

The information on each weapon is broken down as follows (if applicable):

  --Appears after: This tells you what mission you have to complete before 
                   this weapon can be bought from Ammu-Nation or other 
                   locations.
  --Cost: How much the weapon costs and where to purchase it.
  --Notes: Information on the weapon.

Now for the weapons list:

  >>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 available at all Safehouses at the 
      beginning of the game.

  >>Pistol
    ******
      Appears after: "Pump-Action Pimp" (Luigi Goterelli).
      Cost: $250 - Red Light District Ammu-Nation.
      Notes: A decent handgun that can be bought from Ammu-Nation 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
    ****
      Appears after: "Cipriani's Chauffeur" (Joey Leone).
      Cost:
           ++$800 - Red Light District Ammu-Nation.
           ++$800 - Newport Ammu-Nation.
      Notes: One of the better weapons here as it has a good rate of fire and 
             accuracy. Like with the Pistol, you can aim and run at the same 
             time while using this weapon.

  >>Shotgun
    *******
      Appears after: "Arms Shortage" (Ray Machowski).
      Cost: $1,500 - Phil Cassidy's Army Surplus.
      Notes: 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. 

             However, you run slowly while holding this weapon thus making 
             you vulnerable to Cops, pissed-off gang members and pedestrians.

  >>AK-47
    *****
      Appears after: "Last Requests" (Salvatore Leone).
      Cost: $3,000 - Newport Ammu-Nation.
      Notes: This powerful machine gun will make mincemeat out of anybody in 
             your way. Like with the Shotgun, you also run slowly while 
             holding one.

  >>M-16
    ****
      Appears after: "Arms Shortage" (Ray Machowski).
      Cost: $5,000 - Phil Cassidy's Army Surplus.
      Notes: 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 you try to 
             run with it.

  >>Sniper Rifle
    ************
      Appears after: "Last Requests" (Salvatore Leone).
      Cost: $10,000 - Newport Ammu-Nation.
      Notes: 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.

  >>Rocket Launcher
    ***************
      Appears after: "Arms Shortage" (Ray Machowski).
      Cost: $25,000 - Phil Cassidy's Army Surplus.
      Notes: 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.

  >>Flamethrower
    ************
      Appears after: "A Drop In The Ocean" (Donald Love).
      Cost: $25,000 - In an un-numbered garage at the back of the Pike Creek 
                      Police Station.
      Notes: This is a very powerful weapon that can clear an area quickly of 
             enemies. This is also true of vehicles including the Rhino tank 
             since this is pretty much one of the few weapons that can 
             destroy it.

  >>Molotovs
    ********
      Appears after: "A Drop In The Ocean" (Donald Love).
      Cost: $2,000 - In an un-numbered garage at the back of the Pike Creek 
                     Police Station.
      Notes: Can be used to flambe' your enemies and yourself if you're too 
             careless in where you throw one since you don't have as much 
             control over it like you do with the Flamethrower. This is also 
             a weapon that can be used to destroy the Rhino.

  >>Grenades
    ********
      Appears after: "Last Requests" (Salvatore Leone).
      Cost: $2,000 - Newport Ammu-Nation.
      Notes: Toss one of these and watch the crowds scatter (in more ways 
             than one).....

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:

0=======0
| Health \
0=====================================>

  This heart-shaped icon is used to restore your health to its maximum of 
  100. You can earn a Health Icon for your Safehouses by doing the Ambulance 
  Mission.

0===========0
| Body Armor \
0=====================================>

  This armor-shaped icon will increase your armor rating to its maximum of 
  100. You can earn a Body Armor Icon for successfully acquiring fifty 
  Hidden Packages.

  You can also buy Body Armor from the Newport Ammu-Nation for $3,000 after 
  completion of the mission "Last Requests" (Salvatore Leone).

0=============0
| Police Bribe \
0=====================================>

  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.

  You can earn up to six additional Police Bribes for your Safehouses by 
  doing the Vigilante Mission.

0===========0
| Adrenaline \
0=====================================>

  This pill-shaped icon will slow things down and give you super strength. 
  Good for tight situations when you need a little extra help. You can earn 
  an Adrenaline Icon for your Safehouses by doing the Ambulance Mission.

With that explained, let's go over the.....

                  Cipriani's Ristorante, go south a little down the street 
                  and turn left into the alley right next to a shop with a
                  green awning.

  >>Shotgun
    *******
      Location: On top of one of the car garages on the block north of 
                Cipriani's Ristorante.
      Directions: Head to the three-way intersection at the road entrance to 
                  Salvatore's Mansion. Just northwest of this intersection, 
                  inside the road curve, is a park with a parking area.

                  Just west of the parking area is a long angled rooftop. 
                  This rooftop also serves as a ramp to enter the hidden 
                  rooftop park beyond.

                  Go into this park and head to the southwest corner then

                  As you proceed up the hill then you will see a ledge to 
                  your right that has a Health Icon. Continue up the hill 
                  until you reach a driveway that cuts across the block.

                  onto the ledge with the Health Icon. Go past the Health

                reach a driveway that cuts across the block.

                Turn right onto the driveway then loop back so you can get 
                onto the ledge with the Health Icon. Go past the Health Icon 
                and turn left at the corner.

                From here, you should see a ramp leading down into the 
                secluded area to your right. Go down the ramp and do a U-turn 
                to find the Body Armor near the ramp and next to an AK-47 
                Weapon Icon.

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

At the north end of the Portland Docks area 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.

There are sixteen vehicles listed that you need to collect. For each vehicle
you obtain you will get $1,000. If you get all sixteen vehicles listed then
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.

               "Patriot Playground" and the "Gripped!" checkpoint 
               side-missions respectively when you enter them. But, according 
               to Glen Winstein, you can push the vehicle away from its 
               parking spot so you don't trigger the side-mission when you 
               enter it.

               Outside of these two spots the Patriot is generated randomly.

0=======0
| Blista \
0=====================================>

  Description: A four-door minivan but with rounded edges especially in the 
               rear.
  Where Found: In the parking lot behind the Shoreside Vale Safehouse, at the 
               Rockstar parking lot (Staunton Island), at the car garage

               at The Condos parking lot in Newport (Staunton Island).

0============0
| Mr. Whoopee \
0=====================================>

  Description: An ice cream van.
  Where Found: During the mission "I Scream, You Scream" (El Burro). Outside 
               of this mission it is generated at random but rarely spawns.

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 end 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, then 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 then 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 then 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:

  Where Found: At any Police Station or on the street.

Now it is time to do the Ambulance Mission. By doing this I am generating
Health and Adrenaline Icons for my Safehouses and earn the Infinite Run
Feature which will be real handy.

When you go near either Sweeney General Hospital (Portland View), Carson
General Hospital (Rockford), or Hope Medical College (Pike Creek) then you
should find an Ambulance.

Climb into the Ambulance and press Activate Vehicle Mission to begin the
mission. When you start, you have to drive around the city to pick up
patients and take them to a nearby hospital.

There are twelve levels in the Ambulance Mission. You start with one patient
at Level 1 and a additional patient will be added in each level as you
progress.

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.

Let's face it, this mission is a pain in the ass. An unstable vehicle, no
in-game map, low durability and the arbitrary time amounts you earn for
dropping off patients make this a lot harder than it needs to be.

By doing this now then I 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 Island. 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, then 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. Mark's. Learn
how to stop the thing properly so you can lessen the risk of killing
patients.

Learn the Health Code as you will probably end up using this during the
mission. Go back near Sweeney General Hospital and start the mission when
you're ready.

In 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
then get the first one 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 then go. This will save
a second or two. Use your Siren as this causes the cars to either stop or
turn away from you thus making it 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 then you will successfully complete the Ambulance
Mission and gain the Infinite Run feature (never tire when running) plus
earn the Health and Adrenaline Icons for your Safehouses.

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 to the next chapter.....

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

As you go around the city then you may notice some skull icons spinning
about. These are the Rampage Icons.

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

Each Rampage in "Grand Theft Auto III" has two locations, a primary and a
secondary location.

If you fail the Rampage at its primary location then the Rampage Icon will
move to a secondary location. If you fail the Rampage at its secondary
location then the Rampage Icon will move back to its primary location.

There are a total of twenty Rampages in "Grand Theft Auto III". 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 
twenty Rampages.

One of the annoying things about the Rampages in "Grand Theft Auto III" is
that, even if you are in the right position and doing the right things, then
the game may decide to not generate enough targets to complete the Rampage.

With that explained, let's go do them.....

| [R1] - Kill 20 Mafia (AK-47) \
0===========================================================================>

[STM-R1-A] -  Location: Between the car garages east of Cipriani's 
                        Ristorante.
              Neighborhood: St. Mark's.
              Directions: From the four-way intersection at the southwest 
                          corner of Cipriani's Ristorante, head north along 
                          the sidewalk then turn right at the corner. Go 
                          forward along the sidewalk and up the hill.

                          As you proceed up the hill then you will see a 
                          ledge to your right that has a Health Icon. 
                          Continue up the hill until you reach a driveway 
                          that cuts across the block.

                          Turn right onto the driveway and you should see 
                          some small car garages to your left. The Rampage is 
                          between these garages.
              Notes: Drive up to the Rampage, get the Rampage, then go up to 
                     the driveway 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 
                     stuck 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.

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

[STM-R1-B] -  Location: In one of the backyards along an alleyway south of 
                        Cipriani's Ristorante.
              Neighborhood: St. Mark's.
              Directions: From the four-way intersection at the southwest 
                          corner of Cipriani's Ristorante, go south a little 
                          down the street and turn left into the alley right 
                          next to a shop with a green awning.

                          After you get inside the alley then go forward and 
                          turn left at the first opening then turn left 
                          again. You should see the Rampage Icon against the 
                          wall.

                        top of Woody's Topless Club which is across the 
                        street east from Sex Club 7.
              Neighborhood: Red Light 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 un-armed 
                     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.

                        intersection north of Sweeney General Hospital.
              Neighborhood: St. Mark's.
              Notes: Drive a vehicle up the stairs leading up to the Portland 
                     View El-Train Station in St. Mark's, get it onto the 
                     tracks and drive to the Rampage.

                     Get the Rampage and drop a Grenade by your car then drop 
                     down to street level. By blowing up your car then you 
                     take care of one vehicle leaving nine to blow up.

                     Run up to nearby 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.

                     at the AM Petroleum Company (Portland Island) parking 
                     lot southeast of your position if you need to.

              Neighborhood: Trenton.
              Notes: Get the Rampage and go into the street to kill 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 some armor and possibly some health while 
                     you are doing it.

              Directions: Head to the intersection at the entrance for the 
                          parking lot of the Old School. Just east of the 
                          southeast corner of this intersection is an alley.

                          Turn right through the entrance of the alley and 
                          immediately turn right again to find the Rampage in 
                          the corner.
              Notes: Drive to the Rampage, get the Rampage, and then drive to 
                     AM Petroleum Company (Portland Island) nearby and 
                     destroy the two cars parked at its parking lot.

                     Then drive over and destroy the Perennial parked in the 
                     street near the Portland View Police Station, the two 
                     Cop cars at the Police Station and the Ambulance at the 
                     hospital. Then zip over to Portland Docks and destroy 
                     all the vehicles parked around the place including your 
                     own if you need to.

                     Another option, thanks to Alan McKee, is to stand on the

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

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, then this 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 twenty 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 twenty Jumps.

With that explained, let's go do them.....

Listed below are the eight Unique Stunt Jumps that can be found on Portland

Beneath the type of ramp for each Jump you will find the following
information:

  --Location: Where the Jump is located.
  --Directions: How to find the Jump (if necessary).
  --Heading: The direction of the Jump and what to land in or on or how far 
             in order to get credit for the Jump (if applicable).
  --Notes: Information on the Jump (if applicable).

Since the Cheetah is not usually found on Portland Island (at this point in
the game) then you can use the Banshee which is found at Capital Autos in
Harwood.

| II.17. 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 so you
can control 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 then you will begin 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. Plus,
you will be given extra time when you complete a level.

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

In addition, some of the cars you may need for the car lists may be generated
for the criminals. Abandon the mission to claim the cars as needed.

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 this works:

While on Portland Island, grab a Police Car then start the Vigilante Mission.
You need to kill a minimum 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 any additional percentage or Police Bribes. ONLY the first
twenty kills count toward it.

After you get ten kills then 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 then 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 then you will get another 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 then 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 then press Pause, wait a
few seconds and then un-pause.

The criminal will then stop and get out of his car in which case you can
either drive-by or run him over. This works in the Xbox version too.

| II.18. 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 then you can activate the
Firetruck 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), then you will gain the Flamethrower 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 additional
percentage or the Weapon Icon.

ONLY the first twenty fires you put out here count toward it.

When you get to Staunton Island then 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 then 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 Flamethrower 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.19. "Patriot Playground"                                        [PTPL] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

When you go to the SupaSave! Store in Portland View then you will see a
Patriot sitting in the parking lot. Entering it will trigger the vehicle
checkpoint side-mission "Patriot Playground".

This is the first of four vehicle checkpoint side-missions found in Liberty
City.

In this side-mission you have five minutes to collect fifteen Checkpoints and
you are given twenty 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 then
veer right and get the first Checkpoint under the elevated tracks [#1]. Then
go down to the beach.

As you head toward the beach then 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 then you can get Checkpoint [#2] and the
Checkpoint on the beach when you land [#3] (if you miss Checkpoint [#2] then
climb up the embankment to acquire it after getting Checkpoint [#3]).

Climb up the rocky hillside to get behind the apartment complexes and in the
process get Checkpoint [#4] which is on the edge. When you get behind the
complexes then go forward until the next checkpoint is directly right of you
then turn right and head back to the beach and in the process you will
acquire Checkpoint [#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 Checkpoint [#6], then hold Reverse to go back up.

Go up the rocky embankment to get Checkpoint [#7] then back down to the
beach. Go under the archway and along the left side of the embankment to get
Checkpoint [#8].

Then go onto the grass and back down to the beach. Then turn left and go up
the embankment to get Checkpoint [#9]. As you acquire Checkpoint [#9] then
turn right and head for the grass.

Once on the grass then turn right and get Checkpoint [#10].

After getting Checkpoint [#10] then turn around and head west. As you
approach the rocky embankment then you will see Checkpoint [#11].

Climb up to get Checkpoint [#11], turn left when you reach the top and climb
up to get Checkpoint [#12] then turn right when you reach the top to
get Checkpoint [#13]. Then turn left and go behind Salvatore's Mansion.

As you head behind the Mansion then 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 then back up the arch and onto the grass then
turn around. Approach Checkpoint [#15] from the west and get a good speed
to get down to the ledge where it's at.

After acquiring Checkpoint [#15] then you will complete the "Patriot
Playground" vehicle checkpoint side-mission and you will get a reward of
$20,000.

You can also take the Patriot to the Industrial Import Export Garage for the
car list there after completion of the side-mission.

| II.20. "Mafia Massacre" (Toyz Van)/"Diablo Destruction" (Toyz Van) [MFDS] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

In an alley west of Cipriani's Ristorante in St. Mark's 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 then you will trigger a Toyz Van Mission, either
"Mafia Massacre" (St. Mark's) 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 side-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 side-missions then you will be rewarded $1,000 times
the number of cars you managed to destroy. If you destroyed three cars then
you will get $3,000, if you destroyed eight cars then you 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++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++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++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

A second option, according to Nukey_Shay, is to use an Ambulance to get onto
the top of the tunnel. This method is a little more unusual but safer since
you don't risk falling into the water and killing yourself.

Take the Ambulance and drive it to the tunnel entrance. What you need to do
is back up the vehicle completely onto the sidewalk on either side of the
tunnel entrance and up against the blue wall that blocks the tunnel.

Next, climb up onto the hood of the vehicle then run and jump until you are
on top of the Ambulance and poking through the tunnel roof. Then use the game
camera and turn 90 degrees towards the center of the tunnel.

Then keep jumping until you jump, or "land", onto the top of the tunnel. I
found both methods to be pretty easy to execute.

While on top of the tunnel then you will be in what is known as Blue Hell.
From your starting point, 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 then 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 then you can run along the
edges of the tunnel top.

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

The first method works on the PS2, Xbox, and PC versions (PC version
confirmed
by M L and Bryan Ste. Marie. The second method I have confirmed on the PS2
and Xbox versions.

When you are back on land (either Staunton Island or Shoreside Vale) then 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.21.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 the Package. 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 then 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
then the following package is within reach:

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

Now go back down and to the platform then 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, then 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 then you can acquire Package [FIA-H97] first before getting Package
[CHT-H19].

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

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

  >>Collect 34 to 35 Hidden Packages.
  >>Do seven Rampages.
  >>Do four Unique Stunt Jumps.
  >>Do the "Casino Calamity" Toyz Van Mission.
  >>Do the "A Ride In The Park" vehicle checkpoint side-mission.
  >>Do the "Multistorey Mayhem" vehicle checkpoint side-mission.
  >>Do the Firetruck Mission (first twenty fires extinguished).
  >>Do the Vigilante Mission (first twenty criminals killed).

  >>Collect thirty two Hidden Packages.
  >>Do seven Rampages.
  >>Do eight Unique Stunt Jumps.
  >>Do the "Rumpo Rampage" Toyz Van Mission.
  >>Do the "Gripped!" vehicle checkpoint side-mission.
  >>Collect all but one of the cars for the Suburban Import Export Garage.
  >>Do the Firetruck Mission (first twenty fires extinguished).
  >>Do the Vigilante Mission (first twenty criminals killed).

Plus there is the one Hidden Package, [PTL-H33], on the rocks south of
Portland Island.

And, of course, if you want, 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.21.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. But 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 Hidden Package [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 that the
drawbridge would be fixed.

Then get on the drawbridge, onto the median and wait for it to rise so you
can acquire Package [SSV-H75].

But is it possible to get Package [SSV-H75] while the drawbridge is broken?
Yes. It's 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:

0=========0
| Step One \
0======================>

  Get the Dodo, go to the three-way intersection with the road that leads to 
  the Shoreside Lift Bridge, stop and turn right.

0=========0
| Step Two \
0======================>

  Rev up the Dodo (while holding down the brake). Then let go of the brake 
  and go up the bridge while pushing up on the Left Analog Stick (thus 
  pushing the nose down).

  As you near the bridge break then the nose of the plane should be scraping 
  the ground. When you get roughly two to three car lengths from the 
  drawbridge then yank the Left Analog Stick down.

  If you have enough speed then 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 then go near the Package, park very close, and 
  parallel, to the median.

0===========0
| Step Three \
0======================>

  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 then 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 then you will be switched into first person mode while
you are driving it in the tunnel).

If you managed to get the Package then 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.

| II.21.E. Returning to Portland Island by Boat                            \
0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

Now, if you have trouble trying to get the Dodo up the bridge to get at the
Package and head back to Portland Island, then 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.

  When Claude arrives at the club he is given a letter from Luigi by Mickey, 
  one of his guards:

     "There is a new high on the street goes by the name of SPANK. Some 
      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 
      want compensation for this insult!"

0=======================>

  When you start the mission, you will be prompted to take the Baseball Bat 
  that is across the street from your position but you will not need it.

  From here, drive over to Portland Harbor and run the guy over. The two 
  girls nearby are not Luigi's so you won't fail the mission if you kill
them.

  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 
  successfully complete the mission.

  $4,000 and one less pusher on the streets.

  Luigi informs Claude that the Don's son, Joey Leone, wants some action from 
  his regular girl Misty. She lives in nearby Hepburn Heights and you have to 
  pick her up and take her to Joey's Garage in Trenton.

  Luigi also tells Claude:

     "Joey ain't the kind you keep waiting, remember, this is your foot in 
      the door...so keep your eyes on the road and off Misty!"

0=======================>

  $4,000 and you have opened up Joey Leone's set of missions.

  If you happened to be nearby between 09:00 and 19:00 hours then you may 
  have heard a phone ringing. This phone is right outside the Bitch 'N' Dog 
  Food Factory.

  This is where you pick up missions for the factory's owner, Marty Chonks. 
  But I will wait until I have completed all of Luigi's missions before I do 
  Marty's and Joey's missions.

  Get a car and drive up behind them but don't hit or shoot at them. Pass 
  them up, get far enough ahead and stop.

  If you do this right then they should stop behind your parked car honking 
  their horn. Get out, get behind their car, and throw a Grenade at it.

  The car should be flaming as they get out and explode before they can 
  attack you thus killing them and successfully completing the mission.

| Overview \

  Luigi informs Claude that the Policeman's Ball is being held at the Old 
  School in Chinatown and they'll be looking for some "old school" action. 

  Luigi wants him to take as many of his girls, who are spread out all over 
  Portland Island, as fast as he can to the ball before the Cops spend all 
  their money on drinks.....

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

  None.

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

  Get a Taxi and take it to Luigi's (optional). Get a Coach and take it to 
  Luigi's (optional).

0======0

0=======================>

  None.

0=========0
| The Plan \
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. Mark's. Since the Taxi can 
  only hold three girls then 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. Mark's 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 successfully complete the mission.

  Then there is this route, using the Coach (which is the large bus), 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!"

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

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

  This also completes all of Luigi's missions. Before I start with Joey 
  Leone's missions I will deal with.....

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 then you
can get the last mission started before 19:00.

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

0==============================0
| 1. "The Crook" (Marty Chonks) \
0===========================================================================>

  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 successfully completing the mission.

0================================0
| 2. "The Thieves" (Marty Chonks) \
0===========================================================================>

  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, take it 
  back to the factory, and earn $3,000 for successfully completing the 
  mission.

0=============================0
| 3. "The Wife" (Marty Chonks) \
0===========================================================================>

  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 water and you will earn $2,000 for successfully completing the 
  mission.

0==============================0
| 4. "Her Lover" (Marty Chonks) \
0===========================================================================>

  Take the Stallion, pick up the guy (who was seeing Marty's wife before she 
  got whacked) in Chinatown, then take him back to the factory to 
  successfully complete the mission. You will earn $4,000 and complete all of 
  Marty Chonk's missions.

Now let's go to the next character.....

  The Forelli brothers have owed Joey money for far too long and need to be 
  taught some respect. The teaching comes in the form of blowing up one of 
  their guys, Mike Lips.

  He is currently eating at Marco's Bistro in St. Mark's and you have to take 
  his car, fit it with a bomb, and park it back at the restaurant.....

  You will need to pick up this mission between 05:00 and 21:00 hours. When 
  you do then 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 Bomb 
  Shop (St. Mark's). 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 then you will have to go to the Pay 'N' Spray 
  to fix it up.

  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 for use as potential getaway vehicles.

  There are two ways to go about this depending on your style:

  >>The Fast Way
    ************
      Llwyd Campbell, came up with this easy way to do the mission. 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.

      If you were able to get the Sniper Rifle Weapon Icon for your 
      Safehouses then you can use the Rifle instead as it is more precise.

  >>The Slow Way
    ************
      In earlier versions of the guide, and has been suggested by others, is 
      that before confronting Mr. Chong, take both of his getaway vehicles 
      over to 8-Ball's Bomb Shop (St. Mark's) and arm them with bombs then 
      park them back where you found them and arm them.

      Then go and confront Mr. Chong's guards who will give chase and Chunky 
      will run for one of his vehicles. And when he starts it up then the car 
      will go BOOM! and Mr. Chong will be eliminated.

  Regardless of method, when Mr. Chong is killed, then the mission is 
  successfully completed.

  Joey wants you to hit the payroll van that is cruising through Chinatown. 
  The van is impervious to bullets so you need a car and ram it off the road 
  to chase away the security guards driving the van. Then take it to Joey's 
  drop off point to complete the mission.....

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

  After you get the Securicar then 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 that 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, then you will see a lot of the same 
  car that you are currently driving. Since you are driving a Securicar for 
  this mission then you will see more Securicars roaming the street so you 
  will be able to get one for the Industrial Import Export Garage.

  After a few minutes then 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 drop-off point in Portland Docks to 
  successfully complete the mission.

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

  $20,000.

  You will also be paged by El Burro and he can be contacted in Hepburn 
  Heights. But I will wait until I have done all of Joey's missions before 
  doing El Burro's.

  Claude is to take Toni to Cipriani's Ristorante in St. Mark's. And as

  As you exit the garage then 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 then he is ambushed by the Triads and you 
  have to get both of yourselves out of there pronto. Zip north then make

  One of the Forelli brothers thought he was a wise guy so he got whacked by 
  one of Joey's men. Joey wants Claude to take the car, parked at Greasy 
  Joe's Diner in Callahan Point (with the corpse in the trunk), to the Car 
  Crusher at the Harwood Junkyard for disposal.....

0=======================>

  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=======================>

  When you get to Greasy Joe's Diner then you will see a gray Manana which 
  you will need to take to the car crusher. If you scope your surroundings 
  then you will notice a car with its lights on at 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 then 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.

      After you destroy the second car then get into the Manana and drive to 
      the car crusher uncontested to successfully complete the mission.

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

  then just drop down and take a leisurely drive to the Car Crusher. Thanks 
  to Vanatorul DeVise for that idea.

  According to John Willoughby you can still complete this mission if the 
  Cops manage to capture any of the robbers as long as you have at least one 
  robber with you at the finish.

0=========0
| The Plan \
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 then you will be hit with a 3-Star Wanted Rating. 
  Go through the Chinatown Shortcut (the Police Bribe there will knock off 
  one star) and then 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 successfully 
  complete the mission.

Toni Cipriani is the Don's main enforcer and collector (as well as the
protagonist of "Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories"). 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.

  Got a new suggestion by Gui Ritter.

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

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

  There are two ways to do this race depending on your style:

  >>Taking it Slow
    **************
      What reader Gui Ritter suggested is to take a car and, when the race 
      starts, drive SLOWER and more conservatively.

      That may sound self defeating but this actually works very well. Why?

      The reason is because the other racers drive very poorly and crash at 
      corners often thus taking themselves out of position. If you drive 
      slower and more carefully, while still maintaing a good fast speed, 
      then you can get into first place about midway through the race.

      And, if you maintain this pace through the rest of the course, then you 
      can easily win the race.

  >>A Little Brute Force Never Hurts
    ********************************
      In previous versions of this guide I was recommending the use of a 
      Firetruck because of its speed and mass. And I still recommend it if 
      you want to try something different.

      The Firetruck has lousy starting acceleration but, once you get it up 
      to speed, then it is very fast. Also durable and, as you may have found 
      out doing the Firetruck 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. Then 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 then aim for and hit 
      the middle car at full speed.

      When you do that then 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 then 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 powersliding. 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 then just smack them off to the 
      side. If they pass you then 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.

  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 Mr. Whoopee ice cream van. The van is 
  usually roaming around St. Mark's.

  Find the van, jack the van and head to Atlantic Quays. When you get there 
  then 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, then drive-by them to successfully 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.

  I recently had a reader, Darren Anon, come up with the following 
  suggestion:

     "I did notice one thing that could go in your guide, for the “Trial By 
      Fire” (El Burro) mission – park your car right next to the 
      flamethrower, facing outwards.  Right after taking the flamethrower, 
      hop in the car and race towards the nearby basketball court. You’ll 
      notice about 8-10 Triads in the court that you can’t reach from the 
      outside, but don’t actually go in there (it’s a waste of time). 
      Instead, flame one Triad on the street; notice that the Triads in the 
      court lose their mind and start running around, sometimes towards you, 
      and firing their guns if they see you. You should only have to flame 
      one or two through the chain-link fence surrounding the court; the 
      others will also catch on fire and they will all die. That should make 
      the quota of 25 Triads easier to achieve. Also, if you slip up and get 
      a cop’s attention, you can run up the up-ramp into the court itself, 
      pick up the police bribe, and leave through the other up-ramp on the 
      opposite side. While the maneuver takes away precious time, it may be 
      better than restarting depending on how well you are doing."

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

  The "throbbing weapon", a Flamethrower, is located at the China Building. 
  After you grab the weapon then you have two and a half minutes to kill 
  twenty five 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 Flamethrower and torching them will only 
  make matters worse.

  Head towards Chinatown Park frying Triads as you go. The park usually 
  generates a lot of Triads thus simplifying your task.

  When you finish killing twenty five Triads then you will successfully 
  complete the mission.

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

  $10,000.

  After this mission then 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.

  As already noted earlier, the last mission from Toni will also make the 
  Triads hostile to you but it is best to do this mission first since it will 
  make the mission easier by not having the Triads shoot at you while flaming 
  them.

  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.

0=========0
| The Plan \
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 then stop pushing the van and 
  enter it.

  By getting the van close to the first set of magazines then 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 three ways that this mission can be done:

  >>The Assigned Path
    *****************
      Get into the van provided and collect the dropped magazines. You have 
      twenty seconds to start and you are given one second for each bundle 
      picked up.

      The path winds through St. Mark's, 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. Mark's 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. Mark's 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, then 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 then 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 then it may take you several tries before you 
      succeed with this method.

  >>Claude Needs His Exercise
    *************************
      If the above strategies don't work for you then try the "push the van" 
      method suggested in the above Notes. You should do the Ambulance 
      Mission first so that you can have the Infinite Run feature enabled.

      However, I found that there is a better route to push the van than what 
      is stated above.

      When you start the mission, push the van forward then push it east past 
      the phone where you picked up the mission. The goal is to push the van 
      into St. Marks and onto the road that Cipriani's Ristorante is on then 
      go south.

      The hard part is pushing the van up the hill to that road but it really 
      isn't that hard to do. What's harder is keeping Claude behind the van 
      since he tends to slip around the side a lot.

      After you start going south then you can quickly push the van all the 
      way to the entrance of Portland Docks (although you have the option of 
      pushing it all the way to the thief). The advantage to this route is 
      that you avoid having to combat Triads since you don't go anywhere near 
      them.

      But, it should be pointed out, that you can still damage the van if you 
      push it into other objects so you need to take care when pushing.

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

| Reward \
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 the alleyway behind Mr. Wong's Launderette in Chinatown to pick up 
  the money. When you do that then 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 then you should be able to do this 
  mission without so much as a scratch.

  After you kill the last Triad then take the money to Toni to successfully 
  complete the mission.

  When Toni climbs in then 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.

  The Triads will not follow after you get past the gate. Park the limo in 
  the garage and from there you will meet Salvatore.....

0=======================>

  There are three Warlords to take down. One is in 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 then 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 then 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 then go over to to where the 
  third Warlord is and drive-by him to successfully complete the mission.

  Or you could do what reader 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 Health Icon. After you jump the wall 
  then you will either hit and kill the Warlord or put yourself 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 then you can make your life a 
  bit easier with this weapon.

  Use it on the first warlord and, after running over the second warlord, 
  then 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 Flamethrower to 
  shoot through the wall and kill him.

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

  Normally, when you get to the Club, then you will see a Taxi there meant 
  for Curly Bob. When he gets in the taxi then 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 then he will enter your Taxi instead of the one in 
  front and all you have to do is drive him to Portland Docks. No spooking 
  to worry about.

  When you get to Portland Docks then park in the blue circle. The following 
  cutscene confirms Salvatore's suspicions.

  After the cutscene ends then take your Taxi and run over Curly Bob (be 
  careful - he has a Shotgun) to successfully complete the mission.

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

  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=======================>

  When you get to 8-Ball's Bomb Shop (St. Mark's) then he informs you that he 
  needs $100,000 to cover expenses before you can go further. However, if you 
  have done everything up to this point, then you should have quite a bit 
  more than that (especially if you went to the other side early).

  So, step into the blue circle again to proceed.

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

  >>The Standard Method
    *******************
      Go to Portland Docks and park in the blue circle. As 8-Ball gets into 
      position then 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 go ahead and 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 
      construction trailers at 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.

      After you kill the last guard then 8-Ball will get inside and you can 
      watch his brand of fireworks to successfully 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 that goes under St. Mark's. When you get 8-Ball then 
      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 accidentally dropping him off in 
      the blue circle or killing him if Bad Things happen while luring the 
      guards away.

      When you get to Portland Docks then go to the blue circle. Because you 
      do not have 8-Ball then 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 then 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 then 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 that they don't 
      shoot at you and, if they do, then 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. After they get 
      into the blue circle then quickly speed forward and go onto the main 
      path leading out of Portland Docks.

      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.

      After they are clear of the pillars then exit Portland Docks, 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 then 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) then 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.

      After you have trapped these two guards then 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.

      After 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. After this is done and you return to 
      Portland Harbor with 8-Ball then you have FOUR less guards to deal 
      with.

      Another bonus to luring the extra guards away is that, after you drop 
      off 8-Ball, then 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 
      warp 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.

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

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

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

  Go to the blip near Luigi's club. As you near the blip then 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.

  When you get there you will find Maria nearly hysterical.....

     "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. However, 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 successfully completed then head to your new Safehouse 
  on Staunton Island and save your game.

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

  $20,000.

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

  When you enter a car then 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.....

Staunton Island is the heart and soul (such at it is) of Liberty City.

A lot of large businesses, like AMCO Petroleum, are based out of this area.
Most of these businesses are located in the Torrington and Bedford Point
districts. A large park can be found in the Belleville Park district.

There are also some expensive condominiums to the east. Aspatria is home to
Liberty Memorial Coliseum. Staunton Island is also home to St. Matthias
University, the major college in this region, based in the Liberty Campus
district.

Fort Staunton, destroyed in a massive explosion in 1998 but is rapidly being
rebuilt with office buildings, is to the east of the college.

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

Now, that we're here, let's have a tour of this area of Liberty City starting
with the:

  >>Staunton Island Safehouse
    *************************
      Location: (North) Belleville Park, indicated by a house on your radar.
      Notes: This is where you can find your Weapon, Health, Adrenaline, 
             Police Bribe Icons, store at least two vehicles, and save your 
             game.

From here, head out to the nearby street and head northeast. Then stop at the
intersection where this road ends. This is an unusual intersection in that
this street comes in at the southwest corner of a four-way intersection. This
creates a dual intersection.

And at the northeast corner of this dual intersection nearby is the:

  >>Pan-Lantic Construction Site
    ****************************
      Location: (Southeast) Fort Staunton.
      Notes: This is the large construction site for Staunton Plaza which is 
             being built on the ruins of Fort Staunton that was destroyed in 
             a giant explosion in 1998.

             There is one building on the site that is about halfway 
             finished, at the southeast section of the area, which I will 
             call the Pan-Lantic Building.

For some reason there is a lot of Columbians here so care needs to be taken
when going through this area.

And at the northwest corner of this intersection is the:

  >>Campus Shops
    ************
      Location: (Southeast) Liberty Campus, directly across the street west 
                from the Pan-Lantic Construction Site.
      Notes: These are several shops that are frequented by the students from 
             nearby St. Matthias University.

From this intersection, head north and stop at the next four-way
intersection. At the northwest and southwest corners of this intersection is:

  >>St. Matthias University
    ***********************
      Location: Liberty Campus.
      Notes: This is the major college for Liberty City and nearby regions.

From this intersection, continue forward and stop at the next three-way
intersection where this road ends. At the southwest corner of this
intersection is:

  >>Liberty Campus Subway Entrance
    ******************************
      Location: (Northeast) Liberty Campus.
      Notes: This is one of two entrances for the Liberty City Subway System 
             for Staunton Island.

And just southwest of that is the:

  >>Campus Courtyard
    ****************
      Location: (North) Liberty Campus.
      Notes: This is the main courtyard for St. Matthias University. Often 
             used for political rallies.

And at the north side of this intersection is:

  >>Carson General Hospital
    ***********************
      Location: Rockford.
      Notes: This is where you will be if you end up getting Wasted while on 
             Staunton Island.

From here, turn left and stop at the three-way intersection where this road
ends. At the west side of this intersection is:

  >>Liberty Memorial Coliseum
    *************************
      Location: (West) Aspatria.
      Notes: This is the current home of the local professional football 
             team, the Liberty City Cocks.

From here, turn right then stop at the next three-way intersection where this
road ends. The large road that you just stopped at is:

  >>Staunton Loop (North)
    *********************
      Location: Begins at the south part of Liberty Memorial Coliseum 
                (Aspatria), goes through Rockford, and ends at the north part 
                of Newport Bridge (Newport).
      Notes: This is the north part of the road loop that goes around 
             Staunton Island.

From here, turn right. Just as you make the turn onto Staunton Loop (North)
then you should see a small road to your left. Following this road north will
lead you to:

  >>Phil Cassidy's Army Surplus
    ***************************
      Location: (North) Rockford.
      Notes: This is where Phil Cassidy moved his operations after the 
             ferries were shut down and the Rockford Ferry Terminal made into 
             a warehouse area.

Continue forward on Staunton Loop (North) and stop at the next three-way
intersection. To your right you should see the:

  >>Porter Tunnel Entrance (Staunton Island)
    ****************************************
      Location: Rockford, next door east of Carson General Hospital.
      Notes: This is the Staunton Island entrance to the controversial Porter 
             Tunnel project. At this point you can go back to Portland Island 
             but the tunnel is not completed enough to let you go to 
             Shoreside Vale.

From here, continue forward and follow the Stauton Loop. Eventually it will
curve south. Then stop at the next three-way intersection. Just ahead of you
is the:

  >>Newport Bridge
    **************
      Location: (East) Newport.
      Notes: This north-south bridge is part of Staunton Loop (East) which 
             starts at the north end of this bridge and ends at the four-way 
             intersection just west of Kenji's Casino (Torrington).

And:

  >>Staunton Loop (East)
    ********************
      Location: Begins at the north end of the Newport Bridge and ends at the 
                four-way intersection just west of the Kenji's Casino 
                (Torrington).
      Notes: This is the east part of the road loop that goes around Staunton 
             Island.

From this intersection, head forward onto the Newport Bridge. As you climb up
the bridge then you should see some tall reddish buildings to your left.
These are:

  >>The Condos
    **********
      Location: (East) Newport, just east of the Newport Bridge.
      Notes: A pair of reddish colored condominium buildings. Residents there 
             have access to a pair of nearby piers where they can park their 
             boats.

Continue forward along the bridge and stop at the next four-way intersection.
At the northeast corner of this intersection is

  >>City Hall
    *********
      Location: (Northeast) Torrington.
      Notes: This is the City Hall building for Liberty City.

And at the southeast corner of this intersection is the:

      Location: (East) Torrington, next door south of City Hall.
      Notes: This is where you will be if you end up getting Busted while on 
             Staunton Island. There is also some Police vehicles in a parking 
             area behind the Station.

From here, continue forward and stop at the next four-way intersection. At

    *******
      Location: (West) Torrington.

             City.

And at the south side of this intersection is the start of:

  >>Staunton Loop (South)
    *********************
      Location: Begins at the three way intersection in (West) Bedford Point, 
                goes south along Staunton Island, and ends at the four-way 
                intersection west of Kenji's Casino (Torrington).
      Notes: This is the south part of the road loop that goes around 
             Staunton Island.

And at the southwest corner of this intersection is:

             Love, which is one of the most powerful media outlets in the 
             United States. The main entrance is on the west side of this 
             building.

From this intersection, continue forward. As you near the road curve going
west then look to your right to find:

  >>Crystal Park
    ************
      Location: (South) Torrington.
      Notes: A pedestrian park that is home to the largest crystal sculpture 
             in the United States.

Continue west along the road curve, through the next three-way intersection,
then stop at the next three-way intersection. At the northeast corner is the:

      Location: (South) Bedford Point.
      Notes: This is the main building for Love Media. Love Media has grown 
             so large that it encompasses two buildings.

From here, continue forward and follow the road curve going south then stop
at the next three-way intersection. At the north side of this intersection is
the beginning of:

  >>Staunton Loop (West)
    ********************
      Location: Begins at the three-way intersection in west central Bedford 
                Point, runs north on the lower road area, along the west side 
                of Belleville Park and ends at the south part of Liberty 
                Memorial Coliseum (Aspatria).
      Notes: This is the west part of the road loop that goes around Staunton 
             Island.

Nearby, to the east, is another three-way intersection. Head to that then
stop. Just east of the southeast corner of this intersection is the stairs
for the front entrance to the:

  >>Liberty Tree Offices
    ********************
      Location: (Southwest) Bedford Point.
      Notes: Home to Liberty City's newspaper. Has above ground and 
             underground parking lots.

From here, head east and stop at the next three-way intersection. At the
northwest corner of this intersection is the:

  >>20thC. Building
    ***************
      Location: (Central) Bedford Point.
      Notes: This used to be home to Liberty City Free Radio before they were 
             bought out by Love Media and turned into Chatterbox. New tenants 
             now make this place their home.

Now turn left and stop at the next four-way intersection. At the northeast
corner of this intersection is the:

  >>Hyaku Dojo
    **********
      Location: (Central) Bedford Point.
      Notes: A popular hangout for the large number of Japanese who call 
             Liberty City home.

From here, head north. As you proceed forward then you should see a large
church to your left. This is the east entrance for:

  >>Liberty Cathedral
    *****************
      Location: (Central) Bedford Point.
      Notes: The main church for Liberty City.

After this then head to the next four-way intersection then stop. And you
will be in the middle of the:

  >>Theater District
    ****************
      Location: (North) Bedford Point.
      Notes: This bright colorful area is home to the main theater district 
             for Liberty City. Also home to many shops and restaurants.

             Liberty City.

And at the north side of this intersection is:

  >>Middle Park
    ************
      Location: (Central) Belleville Park.
      Notes: This is the main park area for Belleville Park. Although it 
             really should be called Belleville Park, I felt it would be too 
             confusing if I did that because Belleville Park encompasses more 
             than just the park itself. So I decided to call it Middle Park 
             instead (this is also a nod to GTA IV).

From here, turn right and stop at the next three-way intersection. Near the
southeast corner of this intersection is the:

  >>Tw@ Internet Cafe
    *****************
      Location: (North) Bedford Point.
      Notes: A place where you can surf the internet and gulp down overpriced 
             lattes.

This intersection is part of a group of intersections. At the northeast
corner of this area, and close to the Callahan Bridge, is:

  >>Lips 106
    ********
      Location: (South) Newport.
      Notes: This large double building, with an overhang that goes around 
             the complex, is home to another popular radio station. It should 
             be noted that there is no signage on the building that indicates 
             this but that is what it says on the map that comes included 
             with the game.

From here, turn right and go through the next three-way intersection then
turn left at the next four-way intersection. Proceed southeast all the way to
the three-way intersection where this road ends then turn right and stop at
the next intersection.

To your left is:

  >>Kenji's Casino
    **************
      Location: (East) Torrington.
      Notes: This is the only place to legally gamble in Liberty City. It is 
             rumored to be owned by a member of the Yakuza crime family.

Now go forward and along the road loop that goes around the Casino and
proceed north. Eventually you will go under the Callahan Bridge.

After passing under the bridge then you should see an area with lots of
tractor trailers off to the right side of the road. This area is the:

  >>Industrial Park
    ***************
      Location: (East) Newport, next door south of The Condos.
      Notes: An industrial park where tractor trailers are parked and several 
             small warehouses can be found. Also stretches south into 
             Torrington.

             you can purchase weapons for use against your enemies or anybody 
             else who pisses you off.

Continue forward then turn right at the next four-way intersection and stop
at the next four-way intersection. Along the west side of this intersection
is:

  >>The Belleville Mall
    *******************
      Location: (East) Belleville Park, across the street east of Middle 
                Park.
      Notes: This large golden structure is one of the finest shopping malls 
             in Liberty City.

And at the northeast corner of this intersection is the:

  >>Multistory Car-Park
    *******************
      Location: Newport.
      Notes: This is the large car-park used for The Belleville Mall and 
             nearby office buildings.

And on the upper level of the alley that runs along the west side of the
car-park is where you will find the:

  >>Newport Pay 'N' Spray
    *********************
    Location: Newport.
      Notes: This is where you can have your vehicle repaired or re-sprayed 
             to get rid of Wanted Ratings.

And just south of that is the:

  >>8-Ball's Bomb Shop (Newport)
    ****************************
      Location: Newport.
      Notes: This is where you can fit your vehicle with a bomb and leave a 
             nasty surprise for someone.

From this intersection, turn left and go along the reddish colored road that
cuts through The Belleville Mall area then turn right at the next three-way
intersection and turn left at the next three-way intersection.

Head west all the way to the next three-way intersection where this road
ends. Here, you will be under the:

  >>Shoreside Lift Bridge Loop
    **************************
      Location: (West) Belleville Park.
      Notes: This is the loop that goes to the Shoreside Lift Bridge that 
             leads into Shoreside Vale.

From here, turn right then turn left at the next four-way intersection and
stop at the next three-way intersection. At the southeast corner of this
intersection is the:

  >>Belleville Park Fire Station
    ****************************
      Location: (Northwest) Belleville Park.
      Notes: A Firetruck can often be found here and used for the Firetruck 
             Mission.

And this is where I am going to end the tour. You can head back due east of
here to return to your Safehouse if you like.

Now, that I've familiarized you with Staunton Island, it is time to go over
the locations of the.....

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

Listed below are the seven Rampages for Staunton Island and the strategies
for each location:

0==================================0
| [R7] - Destroy 15 Vehicles (M-16) \
0===========================================================================>

[LBC-R7-A] - Location: On a grassy area between buildings at the south side 
                       of Liberty Campus.
             Neighborhood: Liberty Campus.
             Directions: From the Staunton Island Safehouse, head out into 
                         the street then go north to the dual intersection 
                         and turn left. Then turn right at the next three-way 
                         intersection and stop at the next three-way 
                         intersection.

                         Just south of the southeast corner of this 
                         intersection is an entry point into this part of 
                         Liberty Campus. Go east through this entry then 
                         angle southeast as you get near the building in the 
                         center of this block.

                         This should put you at the south side of this 
                         building where you should see a grassy area between 
                         this building and the building to your right. The 
                         Rampage is on this grassy area.
             Notes: Drive up to the Rampage, acquire it and drive over to the 
                    nearby Liberty Memorial Coliseum parking lot.

                    Destroy all the cars there including your own. Then go 
                    over to the 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 then 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 then all the 
                    exploding cars count even if you didn't shoot directly at 
                    them.

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

[FRS-R7-B] - Location: Inside the corner of the ruins at the inside part of 
                       the sharp angled turn at the east side of the

             Neighborhood: Fort Staunton.
             Directions: Go to the dual intersection at the southwest corner 
                         of the Pan-Lantic Construction Site.

                         Just east of the northeast corner of this 
                         intersection is an entryway into the Construction 
                         Site. Go north through the entryway and into the 
                         Site. Angle northeast and you should see a long blue 
                         wall.

                         Go northeast past the corner of the wall, which 
                         should have a red steel beam next to it, then 
                         continue northeast and you should see the corner of 
                         some ruins that are just inside the road curve. The 
                         Rampage can be found inside the corner of these 
                         ruins.
             Notes: Get a car and drive up to the Rampage. Get the Rampage, 
                    destroy your car, and the Cartel Cruiser west of your 
                    position.

                    Go to the opening east of your position and shoot up the 
                    cars, and any Columbian that shoots at you, that appear 
                    on the road. Stay behind the fence as this will keep the 
                    pedestrians from taking whacks at you.

                    The game should produce enough cars to complete the 
                    Rampage.

                    parking lot. The short wall there will keep any hostile 
                    Yardies at bay but will allow you to throw Grenades at 
                    them. This makes this Rampage easy.

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

[BLP-R8-B] - Location: At the end of an L-shaped alley north of the Staunton 
                       Island Safehouse.
             Neighborhood: Liberty Campus.
             Directions: From the Staunton Island Safehouse, head out into 
                         the street then go north to the dual intersection 
                         and turn left. Then stop at the next three-way 
                         intersection.

                         Near the northeast corner of this intersection is 
                         the entrance to an alley. Go north into this alley 
                         then turn right at the corner to find the Rampage at 
                         the end.
             Notes: The simplest way to do this is to run down the street, 
                    throw Grenades at any Yardies you see and run away from 
                    those who chase you and hope that the game generates 
                    enough Yardies to finish the Rampage.

| [R9] - Torch 16 Yakuza (Molotovs) \
0===========================================================================>

[NPT-R9-A] - Location: At the tip of the building partway up the Newport 
                       Bridge.
             Neighborhood: Newport.
             Directions: Go to the intersection at the southwest corner of 
                         City Hall. Head north from here and go under the 
                         Callahan Bridge.

                         Then go up the incline leading to the Newport 
                         Bridge. As you go up then you should see a building 
                         to your right.

                         When you get to the end of the building, and where 
                         the guardrail for the Bridge begins, stop. You 
                         should find the Rampage at this end of this building 
                         by the door.
             Notes: Run south down the street and torch the Yakuza you see.

                    When you get to the intersection where City Hall is, 
                    stop. Stay here and torch the remaining Yakuza.

                    Use your camera to target Yakuza behind you. Remember, 
                    stay far enough away from them when you kill them
                    otherwise you may set yourself aflame.

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

[NPT-R9-B] - Location: Just south of 8-Ball's Bomb Shop (Newport) where the 
                       concrete railing meets the building.
             Neighborhood: Newport.
             Notes: Jump on the wall and carefully go to the nearby corner. 
                    Then throw or drop Molotovs at all the Yakuza you see. 
                    This high vantage point makes the Rampage very easy.

| [R10] - Destroy 8 Vehicles (Shotgun) \
0===========================================================================>

[BLP-R10-A] - Location: Inside the southwest corner of Middle Park.
              Neighborhood: Belleville Park.
              Notes: Get a car and go to the Rampage. Get the Rampage, get 
                     back into your car, and zip as fast as possible to the 
                     Multistory Car-Park.

                     Go up to the second level and get out. Shoot your car 
                     until it flames and go to the nearest car, shoot it up 
                     until it flames and go to the nearest car, and so forth.

                     You should have one car left to destroy by the time you 
                     have destroyed all the cars on this level. Move up to 
                     the next level and destroy the first car you see to 
                     complete the Rampage.

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

[BLP-R10-B] - Location: Inside the northeast corner of Middle Park.
              Neighborhood: Belleville Park.
              Notes: Same strategy except that, since you are closer to the 
                     Multistory Car-Park from this position, you will have 
                     more time to work with.

0================================================0
| [R11] - Annihilate 30 Yardies (Rocket Launcher) \
0===========================================================================>

[BDT-R11-A] - Location: Just inside the entrance of the church graveyard at 
                        the west side of Liberty Cathedral.
              Neighborhood: Bedford Point.
              Directions: Head to the four-way intersection at the northeast 
                          corner of the 20thC. Building. From here, go 
                          northwest then turn right at the next three-way 
                          intersection.

                          As you get near the next three-way intersection 
                          then you should see the west side of Liberty 
                          Cathedral. Stop at the Cathedral then walk north 
                          alongside the Church and turn right at the corner.

                          Inside the next corner is the almost hidden 
                          entrance to the graveyard. The Rampage can be found 
                          just inside this entrance.
              Notes: Get a car and drive to the Rampage. Get the Rampage and 
                     drive just south along the road to the set of stairs at 
                     the southwest corner of the nearby three-way 
                     intersection (close to the "Join the Army!" and "Punk 
                     Noodles" billboards).

                     Drive up the stairs and get out. From here you can get 
                     a lot of Yardies quickly. If any manage to come up to 
                     assault you then get back into your car and run them 
                     over.

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

[BDT-R11-B] - Location: Tucked away by the stairs near the front entrance of 
                        Liberty Tree Offices.
              Neighborhood: Bedford Point.
              Notes: Same strategy except that you have to drive north from 
                     your position to get to the set of stairs.

| [R12] - Pop 17 Yardie Heads (Sniper Rifle) \
0===========================================================================>

[TRG-R12-A] - Location: On the second floor of the AMCO HQ building just 
                        behind the stairs.
              Neighborhood: Torrington.
              Notes: Get the Rampage and go back down to street level. Stay 
                     behind the railings and shoot at the Yardies.

                     Remember, only headshots count. The only matter to 
                     resolve is whether you are accurate and fast enough to 
                     complete the Rampage.

                     The game always seems to generate enough to complete the 
                     Rampage so there should be no shortage of targets.

                     Reader Gui Ritter had this to add about this Rampage:

                       "Accuracy is really not a problem to complete this. 
                        It's more like timing. Do this: Watch the head, draw 
                        a imaginary line that makes the head's future 
                        trajectory, aim at that line and wait for the head to 
                        get intoyour aim. Then shoot. I made the rampage in 
                        about 1:30 doing this way."

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

[TRG-R12-B] - Location: At the north side of the topmost level, across from 
                        the helipad, at Kenji's Casino.
              Neighborhood: Torrington.
              Notes: Get the Rampage and jump down to the street in front of 
                     the main entrance. From this point you can just stand 
                     here and pop their heads with no problem except for one.

                     Since the Yardies and the Yakuza don't like each other 
                     then, whenever a Yakuza Stinger drives by, the Yardies 
                     will chase and attack it thus making it harder to get 
                     your headshots.

| [R13] - Burn 25 Yakuza (Flamethrower) \
0===========================================================================>

[BDT-R13-A] - Location: In a corner near the southeast entrance of the 
                        Liberty Tree Offices above ground parking lot.
              Neighborhood: Bedford Point.
              Notes: Drive up to the Rampage, get the Rampage, and drive over 
                     to the nearest street. Go around and flame all the 
                     Yakuza you see. They will never attack you so this 
                     Rampage is very easy to complete.

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

[BDT-R13-B] - Location: Tucked in the corner at the southwest side of Liberty 
                        Cathedral.
              Neighborhood: Bedford Point.
              Directions: Head to the four-way intersection at the northeast 
                          corner of the 20thC. Building. At the northwest 
                          corner of this intersection is a tall white 
                          building with very tall archways.

                          From this intersection, head northwest on the road 
                          (the tall white building should be to your right). 
                          Continue northwest until this building ends and you 
                          see a large pathway with small posts.

                          Go north onto this large pathway and it will take 
                          you to the south entrance of Liberty Cathedral 
                          where you will find a Health Icon.

                          From here, turn west then turn right at the next 
                          corner. Then follow the wall to the next corner 
                          where you will find the Rampage.
              Notes: Same strategy, different part of Bedford Point.

| IV.5. Unique Stunt Jumps (Staunton Island)                         [USJS] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Listed below are the four Unique Stunt Jumps that can be found on Staunton
Island:

0==============0
| Newport (NPT) \
0=====================================================>

[NPT-J9] - A concrete ramp
           ***************
             Location: At the southwest corner at the top level of the 
                       Multistory Car-Park.
             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] - A pile of gravel
            ****************
              Location: Directly underneath the west end of Callahan Bridge 
                        at the Industrial Park.
              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] - A grassy ramp
            *************
              Location: On the median, and between the billboards, for the 
                        Newport Bridge east of Lips 106.
              Directions: Head to the three-way intersection at the north end 
                          of the Newport Bridge. Head south onto the bridge.

                          When you get to the top of the bridge then you 
                          should see a small ramp at the start of the bridge 
                          median. Carefully go up this ramp to get onto the 
                          median.
              Heading: North to South.
              Notes: When you get onto the median then zip straight ahead but 
                     be careful of the trees as 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.

0====================0
| Bedford Point (BDT) \
0=====================================================>

[BDT-J12] - A set of stairs
            ***************
              Location: Inside the Tw@ Internet Cafe.
              Heading: East to West and through the Cafe.
              Notes: Start from the corner to the east and align yourself 
                     with the ramp when you approach the street.

                     Reader Gui Ritter had this to add about the Jump:

                       "If you go up the stairs, break the glass, and back up 
                        to the garage entrance, you can get enough speed to 
                        make the jump. But you must not hit the ceiling and 
                        hitting the stairs more to the left seems to help. 
                        Also, when I did it, i had hit the garage door and 
                        was turning to make the jump. That might be better 
                        than stopping and starting from no speed."

And now for some side-missions.....

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

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

Go into Middle Park and near the north end by the basketball courts is a
Landstalker. Entering it will trigger the vehicle checkpoint side-mission "A
Ride In The Park".

Here you have two minutes to collect twelve Checkpoints and you are given ten
seconds for each one you acquire.

When you start the side-mission then you will see Checkpoint [#1] off to your
left. 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
Checkpoint ahead of you [#2] then angle slightly left to get Checkpoint [#3].

Stop and let the vehicle settle against the wall then back up to get
Checkpoint [#4]. Go south to the end of the park and collect Checkpoint [#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
Checkpoint on the west incline [#6] then the Checkpoint under the bridge
[#7] and 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 Checkpoint [#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 Checkpoint [#12] and successfully complete the "A Ride In
The Park" vehicle checkpoint side-mission and get $30,000 for your efforts.

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

This particular vehicle checkpoint side-mission takes place within the
confines of the Multistory Car-Park 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 car-park.
Get it, go out the south entrance, turn around so that you are just outside
the south entrance, get out then get in again.

When you start the side-mission then you have two minutes to get twenty
Checkpoints. Unlike the other vehicle checkpoint side-missions, the timer
starts when the mission does and you have twenty seconds to start plus five
seconds for each Checkpoint acquired.

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

When you get up to the second level then get Checkpoint [#5] which is ahead
of you but a little to the left then turn around and get Checkpoint [#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 Checkpoint [#7] and straighten out to get
Checkpoint [#8] then turn right and go up the ramp.

When you get up to level three then 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 Checkpoints [#10] and [#11] (be
careful when approaching the wall - there seems to be an invisible obstacle
near where the ramp is). When you get Checkpoint [#12] then back up and turn
right to go up the ramp.

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

After getting up to level five then 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 Checkpoint [#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" then you will
successfully complete the vehicle checkpoint side-mission and get $30,000 as
a reward.

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

Whenever you enter a Taxi then you have the option of doing the Taxi Mission
by pressing Activate Vehicle Mission. This 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
on Portland Island.

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 then re-enter the Taxi.

Press and HOLD the Activate Vehicle Mission button. While holding the
Activate Vehicle Mission button then 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 when trying to get inside the other car.

After you get close enough to the other car then press Enter Vehicle and,
once inside (wait until you close the car door otherwise the mission will end
before it begins), then 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 because
the X Button is the Activate Vehicle Mission button so there is no
disorientation while trying to get inside 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 Pan-Lantic
Construction Site. While getting your customer to it then 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 then 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) then 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

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 in the side-missions "Diablo Destruction" and "Mafia Massacre", you
have to use remote controlled cars to destroy gang vehicles. In this
side-mission you have to destroy as many Yakuza Stingers as you can in two
minutes.

 \AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA/

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.

You may want to take a Mafia Sentinel from Salvatore's Mansion and put it in
the garage at any of your Safehouses prior to doing Asuka's first mission if
you haven't already done so. This vehicle will be needed later in the game.

**IMPORTANT: 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

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

  Before Asuka can give him 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 are going to catch up on old times:

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

| The Plan \
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 the Red Light District.

  The absolute best place to take down Salvatore is where Package [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.

  After you waste him then the mission is successfully completed.

  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 Molotovs 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 the road entrance to Salvatore's 
  Mansion instead and wait just inside. Salvatore's car will come from the 
  south and you can destroy his car just before he gets to the road entrance 
  with the Rocket Launcher.

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

  $25,000.

  In addition, the Mafia will be hostile to you so it will be very dangerous 
  to enter the St. Mark's 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).

  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 down these spies to 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.

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

  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 Middle Park. Take the 
  Yakuza Stinger, drive up to the park's wall, and jump on top of the car. 
  Use the Sniper Rifle to take down 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 and use the nearby helicopter as cover as 
  you kill them with the Sniper Rifle.

  After you have killed the last Mafia goon then the mission will be 
  successfully completed.

  If you managed to get all of the Hidden Packages to get the Rocket Launcher 
  Weapon Icon then you can use this weapon instead.

  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.

It is **VERY IMPORTANT** to note that if you want to get 100% Completion then
you MUST do all of Kenji's missions before you do "Waka-Gashira Wipeout"

  You need to have a Police Car and rig it with a bomb then take it to the

  8-Ball's Bomb Shop (Newport) to rig it with a bomb.

  Then go back to 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 then 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 a left at 
  the end of the tunnel and, once you get back to the street, then head for 
  your Safehouse and use the Police Bribes there to get rid of your Wanted 
  Rating.

  After you have done that then head over to the Dojo to successfully 
  complete your mission.

  There are three cars to be acquired: a Stinger in the above ground parking

  Coliseum.

  In addition, this must be done within six minutes and they have to be 
  presented in mint condition. The drop-off point is right next door to the 
  Pay 'N' Spray in Newport. If you smash up the car then you can quickly 
  repair it before deposit.

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

  After depositing the Infernus then the mission is successfully completed.

  There are three businesses to collect money from and they must be picked up 
  in order.

  The first one is near Love Media not far from the Casino. The second one is 
  in Bedford Point.

  But, as you near the money, then you are shot at by a Diablo gang member. 
  Drive-by him and get the money.

  However, as you try to collect from the third business.....

     "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...?"

  As it turns out, the Diablos are responsible for this mess and you need to 
  go to Hepburn Heights to punish them and get the money. They will be 
  standing by a large planter near where you got the El Burro missions.

  According to Stuart Burgess, you can go up to the Hepburn Heights El-Train 
  Station platform and use the Sniper Rifle to take them down from there. 
  From this distance they will just stand around as you pick them off and 
  will offer no threat to you.

  After you have killed them all then take the money back to the Casino to 
  successfully complete the mission.

  Take the Firetruck and completely block the alley that leads to the main 
  street. Don't go straight across. Put the Firetruck in at an angle so it 
  points northeast and the front and rear of the Firetruck touch the walls.

  Get out and use the Grenades on the open window which will flush them out. 
  Then quickly switch to the AK-47 and kill the two guards by the garage 
  door.

  At this point the getaway car is trying to push through the Firetruck. If 
  you put the Firetruck straight across then they will be able to push 
  through before you can destroy them.

  By putting the Firetruck in the alley at an angle then they cannot push 
  through. As they are trying to push through then aim at the car with the 
  AK-47 and shoot it up to destroy it.

  After the car is destroyed then the mission will be successfully completed.

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

  A friend of Ray's, Phil Cassidy, needs some help after some Columbians 
  roughed him up. Claude is to provide assistance for Phil.....

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

  AK-47, Rocket Launcher (optional).

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

  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=======================>

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

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

  After the mission starts then go to Carson General Hospital to pick up an 
  Ambulance and 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
  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 then 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 then 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 then 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 some Molotovs and a Rocket Launcher on top of 
  the nearby container crates. This is what you bring the Ambulance for.

  This is so you can quickly climb and acquire the Rocket Launcher from the 
  top of the container crates if you want. If you decide to acquire the 
  weapon then you may want to drop back down to ground level since the 
  Columbians have a habit of knocking you off with Shotguns.

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

  If you managed to get the Rocket Launcher then this mission becomes easier 
  because you can blow up the Cartel Cruisers and then the 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, then they will 
  kill Phil and you will get a mission failure.

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

0=======================>

  $10,000.

  In addition, you can now buy the following weapons here at Phil Cassidy's 
  Army Surplus (Rockford):

    >>Shotgun [Cost: $1,500].
    >>M-16 [Cost: $5,000].
    >>Rocket Launcher [Cost: $25,000].

  You can also get the OL Barracks from here anytime for the Emergency 
  Vehicle Crane.

  Then there's the matter of the nearby Rhino which leads into the next 
  chapter.....

| 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
have the 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 then 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 then 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.

When you get to the signal lights at the top of the hill then turn the Rhino
right and  push it toward the entrance of your Safehouse area. After you get
the tank down to the garage area then 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 then 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 then 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 later in the Shoreside Vale
section of the guide.

  When Claude arrives at the toilet block then 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=======================>

  Grenades.

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

  None.

0=========0
| The Plan \
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 then 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, then you will NOT regain the Wanted Rating so the mission 
  becomes much easier since you no longer have to deal with the Cops.

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

  And you have now opened up Donald Love's set of missions. I will now start

Donald Love is the richest and most powerful person in Liberty City. If you 
have ever played "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" and "Grand Theft Auto: Liberty

Avery Carrington well (perhaps a little too well).

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

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

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

  Sniper Rifle, AK-47.

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

  None.

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

  After the cutscene ends then grab the Cartel Cruiser from your garage and 
  head down to the gated area in Aspatria (where you acquired Package 
  [APT-H38]). But 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.

  After the door starts to open then 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.

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

  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 Multistory Car-Park in 
      Newport. Get a Cartel gangcar and eliminate him!

      The Yakuza must blame the Cartel for this declaration of war."

  **IMPORTANT: If you still haven't done all of Kenji's missions then 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=======================>

  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=======================>

  Head back to your Safehouse and take the Cartel Cruiser from your garage. 
  Drive into the Multistory Car-Park and go up the ramps on the NORTH side of 
  the car-park.

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

  After killing Kenji then go 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 you 
  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.

  After you get into Belleville Park then the mission is successfully 
  completed upon 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=======================>

  None.

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

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

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

  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 then the plane will start dropping packages 
  into the water. The plane will drop a total of six packages.

  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 then 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, 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, then 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. 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 Emergency Vehicle Crane at Portland Island and then 
  get another car and go back to Love Media to successfully complete 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 grab a vehicle and quickly head to the Pay 'N' Spray nearby 
  to get rid of the Wanted Ratings. After that then you can now go back to 
  Love Media uncontested to successfully complete the mission.

| Reward \
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) then 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 then acquire Package [SSV-H75] to take one step closer to finishing 
  collecting the Hidden Packages.

  As you enter Shoreside Vale then 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, then 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.....

Shoreside Vale is the main residential area of Liberty City. Cedar Grove is
home to some of the most expensive houses in the city yet, just to the south
in Wichita Gardens, are rundown apartment complexes where the majority of the
lower classes live.

Cochrane Dam provides hydroelectric power to Liberty City and nearby regions.
Additional businesses can be found in Pike Creek. The major transportation
hub, Francis International Airport is to the south.

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

Now, that we're here, let's have a tour of this area of Liberty City starting
with the:

  >>Shoreside Vale Safehouse
    ************************
      Location: (West) Wichita Gardens, indicated by a house on your radar.
      Notes: This is where you can find your Weapon, Health, Adrenaline, 
             Police Bribe Icons, store at least two vehicles, and save your 
             game.

Just across the street south of the Safehouse is the:

  >>Gardens Shortcut
    ****************
      Location: (West) Wichita Gardens.
      Notes: This is a very large gap between the guardrails and will lead to 
             a gently sloping grassy hillside. Going from the Safehouse and 
             through the shortcut will take you to the main road leading to 
             the Porter Tunnel and Cochrane Dam. A real time saver.

Now go the three-way intersection just southeast of the Safehouse then turn
left and proceed north on:

  >>Cedar Road
    **********
      Location: Starts at the three-way intersection near the Shoreside Vale 
                Safehouse in Wichita Gardens and goes north, winding through 
                two hairpin curves and up to a three-way intersection where 
                it ends.
      Notes: This also has a parking lot near the west hairpin curve leading 
             up.

Stop at the three-way intersection at the end of Cedar Road. And on the
north side of this intersection is:

  >>The Homes
    *********
      Location: Cedar Grove.
      Notes: A group of seven large expensive homes including a mansion.

From this intersection, turn right and to the road curve going north where
you will find:

  >>The Mansion
    ***********
      Location: Cedar Grove.
      Notes: The largest residence of The Homes which is rumored to be owned 
             by a high ranking member of the Colombian Cartel.

This is why there are Columbians running around the neighborhood shooting at
you so you need to be more careful around here. From this road curve, head
north and at the next three-way intersection you will find the east entrance
to the:

  >>Upstate Tunnel
    **************
      Location: (North) Cedar Grove.
      Notes: This road tunnel, which has east and west entrances, leads 
             upstate to Carcer City and beyond. The whole tunnel is currently 
             closed because of major repairs due to a cave-in caused by 
             shoddy maintenance.

From this intersection, turn left and go west along the road that runs along
the north side of The Homes area and stop at the next three-way intersection.
At the southeast corner there should be a hedge.

And beyond that is:

  >>Toni's House
    ************
      Location: Cedar Grove.
      Notes: This large lavender house at the west end of The Homes is 
             another residence owned by Toni Cipriani. It is unclear if he 
             still uses it but it is rumored he hides some of his most 
             powerful weapons here (probably to keep them out of his mother's 
             hands).

From this three-way intersection, turn left and follow the road curve going
west then stop just before you get to the next hairpin curve. To the north
you should see the entrance to the:

  >>Cochrane Dam
    ************
      Notes: This dam is a major landmark for Liberty City and which provides 
             electric power to the entire region. From the entrance you can

             storage area for container crates and stairs that lead to the 
             top of the Cochrane Dam Power House.

From the entrance to Cochrane Dam, turn around and go back north around the
road curve then through the three-way intersection near Toni's House.

Then go forward and turn left at the three-way intersection near the west
entrance to the Upstate Tunnel. As you proceed forward then you will also be

purple garage doors and an overhang which is:

  >>Burke Supply Company (Shoreside Vale)
    *************************************
      Location: (Central) Pike Creek.
      Notes: One of two buildings for a large business that is based out of 
             Liberty City. It merged with Scopers Haulage last year and 
             changed the name to reflect the business move.

From here, turn left and follow the road to the next three-way intersection
then stop. To the west is Francis International Airport. Now turn left onto
the road and to the nearby road curve where you should see a large Sumo sign.

Next to it is a road that leads west towards the Airport grounds. Proceed
west towards the grounds and you should see a gate to your right which is
for:

  >>Airport Parking

Continue west and onto the Airport grounds. As you follow the road then you
should see the west side of the main building:

  >>West Airport Entrance
    *********************
      Location: (Central) Francis International Airport.
      Notes: This is a secondary entrance for the airport building. This is 
             used by passengers of private planes.

                Airport Entrance.
      Notes: This is where some of the planes are parked. This area is has

                Runway.

From the road loop, head back north and to the three-way intersection then
turn right and enter the Porter Tunnel (which should be to the right of the
ramp leading up to the Shoreside Lift Bridge).

Turn left at the three-way intersection inside the tunnel and follow the road
to the tunnel exit in Wichita Gardens then stop. And this end of the tunnel
is:

  >>Porter Tunnel (West)

                        going up alongside the Dam. The Hidden Package can be 
                        found in a gap between a couple of the pipes up

                        head to the east side of the building to find a 
                        fenced off area. Go through the entrance to this area

                        Follow the road curve going east and go down the

                        be between the building and the retaining wall.

                        Continue forward and you should find a dark red 
                        container crate, and the Hidden Package on top, as 
                        you get past the building. Back the Ambulance up to 
                        the crate then climb the vehicle to gain access to

                      Projects.

                        Shoreside Vale Safehouse, head east down the bridge 
                        and stop at the next three-way intersection.

                        From here, turn left then turn left again at the next 
                        three-way intersection. Continue forward and go south 
                        with the road curve.

                        As you continue forward then look for a large YFBC 
                        billboard which should appear on the right side of 
                        the road.

                        When you find it, stop. Directly across the street 
                        east of the billboard is one of the large apartment 
                        buildings for The Projects.

                        The Hidden Package can be found in the entrance of

            Directions: From Package [WCG-H89], head south to the bridge but 
                        don't go under it. Instead turn right and go 
                        alongside it.

                        When the bridge ends then turn right to go under it 
                        and to the apartment buildings ahead. Go straight to 
                        the wall then turn left to find the Hidden Package in 
                        the narrow alley between these buildings.

[WCG-H91] - Location: Underneath the broken twisted bridge east of the Turtle

            Directions: Go to the four-way intersection at the southeast 
                        corner of Punk Noodles. From here, go south and 
                        follow the road curve.

                        As you continue forward then you should see a pair of 
                        billboards for Mean Street Taxis and "69th Street" to 
                        your left. Just beyond them is a dirt road.

| V.4. Rampages (Shoreside Vale)                                     [RPGV] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Listed below are the remaining seven Rampages for Shoreside Vale and the
strategies for each location:

0=========================================0
| [R14] - Fry 20 Columbians (Flamethrower) \
0===========================================================================>

[CDG-R14-A] - Location: Behind the car garage of a light orchid house at The 
                        Homes.
              Neighborhood: Cedar Grove.
              Directions: Go to the three-way intersection where Cedar Road 
                          ends at The Homes. At the north side of this 
                          intersection is a large gray house.

                          From this intersection, turn right. Once past the 
                          hedge for the gray house then jump the short 
                          concrete wall and head northeast to the light 
                          orchid house.

                          The Rampage can be found behind the car garage at 
                          the east side of the house.
              Notes: PS2 Version
                     ***********
                       Use a Cartel Cruiser and drive to the Rampage. After 
                       getting the Rampage then quickly drive over to The 
                       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 Columbians.

                       Start by sweeping left for a couple of seconds and 
                       then sweep right for a couple of seconds and repeat 
                       the pattern until the 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.

                       For the Xbox Version, 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.

                     Reader Chris Sheets had this interesting trick to add 
                     concerning this Rampage:

                          "On the fry 20 Columbians Rampage if you do the 
                           rampage with a cop chasing you on foot the 
                           Columbians will not shoot and you can just run up 
                           and fry them. You just have to outrun the cop 
                           which is easy."

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

[PKC-R14-B] - Location: Behind the wall in front of The Fudge Packing Corp.
              Neighborhood: Pike Creek.
              Notes: Get the Rampage and go to the northeast corner where the 
                     road bends and stand behind the wall. Sweep left and 
                     right to nail your targets.

                     If you need to get more targets then move from behind 
                     the wall and lure some Columbians to your position then 
                     duck behind the wall again. Not too hard.

              Neighborhood: Wichita Gardens.
              Directions: From the three-way intersection just southeast of 
                          the Shoreside Vale Safehouse, head east down the 
                          bridge and stop at the next three-way intersection.

                          From here, turn left then stop at the next 
                          three-way intersection. At the east side of this 
                          intersection should be the road that leads to the 
                          Staunton View Picnic Area.

                          At the north side of the intersection, up high on 
                          an embankment, is a large Squid billboard. The 
                          Rampage is behind this billboard.
              Notes: Use a car to get up to the Rampage. When you start the 
                     Rampage then get back into the car, drive off and back 
                     onto the street.

                     Go into the nearby parking lot and turn right then cut 
                     across the small grassy area and grab the Adrenaline 
                     Icon.

                     After that then 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.

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

[CDG-R15-B] - Location: Behind the Gasoline billboard at the west hairpin 
                        turn on Cedar Road.
              Neighborhood: Cedar Grove.
              Notes: Get the Rampage, go 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 down 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.

| [R16] - Splatter 20 Hoods (Shotgun) \
0===========================================================================>

[WCG-R16-A] - Location: On top of one of the car garages by the northeast 
                        apartment building for The Projects (jump from the 
                        main bridge to reach).
              Neighborhood: Wichita Gardens.
              Notes: Get the Rampage 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 on the east side of the road and get out of the car. 
                     Go south and shoot the Hoods as they appear.

                     If you try to do the Rampage near where you got it then 
                     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 more 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, then 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-R16-B] - Location: Behind the Sumo sign near the west end of the 
                        Shoreside Lift Bridge.
              Neighborhood: Francis International Airport.
              Directions: Go to the four-way intersection at the southeast 
                          corner of Punk Noodles. From here, go south and 
                          follow the road then stop at the next three-way 
                          intersection.

                          To the west is Francis International Airport. At 
                          the east side of this intersection is a large Sumo 
                          sign.

                          The Rampage is behind this sign.
              Notes: Go up the main road and shoot the Hoods as they 
                     generate.

                     The wide main road will allow you to work on 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.

| [R17] - Behead 15 Columbians (Sniper Rifle) \
0===========================================================================>

[PKC-R17-A] - Location: Behind the white crate in an alley southeast of The 
                        Undercover Storage Company.
              Neighborhood: Pike Creek.
              Directions: Go to the road curve entrance for The Undercover 
                          Storage Company.

                          Go past the Police Bribe then turn southeast at the 
                          corner of the building. Continue southeast until 
                          you get to the wall then go south into a narrow 
                          alley.

                          At the end of this alley is a ramp. Just before 
                          this ramp, and behind a crate, is the Rampage.
              Notes: Get a car and drive to the Rampage. Get the Rampage, get 
                     back into your car, drive up the ramp, and fall down to 
                     the street below.

                     It's a long way down and hopefully you will be able to 
                     land on your wheels. If you do, and maintain control, 
                     then 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 short 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, then this Rampage shouldn't be too 
                     bad.

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

[PKC-R17-B] - Location: On the roof of the numbered garages behind the Pike 
                        Creek Police Station.
              Neighborhood: Pike Creek.
              Notes: Same strategy as before except that you want to place a 
                     car just before the small ramp below where the Rampage 
                     is.

                     Run back up to the Rampage, get it, jump down, get into 
                     your vehicle, drive up the ramp, and jump into the 
                     street. Then go the Burke Supply Co. (Shoreside Vale) 
                     and take down the Columbians.

| [R18] - Destroy 15 Vehicles (Rocket Launcher) \
0===========================================================================>

[PKC-R18-A] - Location: On top of the Turtle Head Fishing Co. (Shoreside 
                        Vale) near the top of the stairs.
              Neighborhood: Pike Creek.
              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 then 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.

[FIA-R18-B] - Location: Behind the "Badfellas" billboard.
              Neighborhood: Francis International Airport.
              Directions: Go to the four-way intersection at the southeast 
                          corner of Punk Noodles. From here, go south and 
                          stop at the nearby road curve.

                          On the outside part of the curve you should see the 
                          large "Badfellas" billboard. The Rampage is behind 
                          this billboard.
              Notes: Get a vehicle and drive to the Rampage. Position your 
                     car so that you can see the Airport Parking lot.

                     Get out, get the Rampage 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 destroy them quickly.

                     Walk away from your car and destroy it. Now you only 
                     have five cars left to destroy.

                     From here, 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 okay.

| [R19] - Drive-by and Destroy 7 Vehicles (Uz-I) \
0===========================================================================>

[PKC-R19-A] - Location: Near the guard gate for Punk Noodles.
              Neighborhood: Pike Creek.
              Notes: Get a fast sports car, like a Banshee, and drive to the 
                     Rampage. Get the Rampage and then drive as fast as you 
                     can to the Airport Parking lot.

                     There you have plenty of cars you can quickly drive-by 
                     and destroy without any problems whatsoever.

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

[CCD-R19-B] - Location: Behind the large rock on the left side of the road 
                        loop near the Cochrane Dam Power House.
              Neighborhood: Cochrane Dam.
              Notes: Same as before but you will have less time to work with 
                     because you will have to drive a longer distance to get 
                     to the Airport Parking lot, However, you should still be 
                     able to destroy the necessary number of cars within the 
                     time limit.

| [R20] - Splatter 20 Columbians (Any Vehicle) \
0===========================================================================>

[FIA-R20-A] - Location: Behind the Fat Burger Kid billboard directly across 
                        the street from the East Airport Entrance to Francis 
                        International Airport (and just north of the Francis 
                        International Airport Subway Entrance).
              Neighborhood: Francis International Airport.
              Notes: Get the Firetruck from the Francis International 
                     Airport Fire Station and drive to the Rampage. Get the 
                     Rampage and use the Firetruck to run over the 
                     Columbians.

                     The Firetruck should withstand their gunfire long enough 
                     to survive the Rampage. When you start the Rampage then 
                     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 going to the main road 
                     instead then 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.

                     If you have the Bulletproof Patriot earned from the 
                     mission "Marked Man" (Ray Machowski) then this Rampage 
                     becomes easier because they cannot damage the vehicle 
                     with gunfire. Thanks to Christopher Mora for that 
                     suggestion.

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

[PKC-R20-B] - Location: In the grassy area across the street and south of the 
                        Burke Supply Co.
              Neighborhood: Pike Creek.
              Directions: Go to the three-way intersection northwest of Hope 
                          Medical College then head south.

                          Follow the road curve going east and go down the 
                          incline. As you continue forward then you should 
                          see the south entrance for the Burke Supply Company 
                          to your left.

                          When you get to the south entrance then stop and 
                          turn south onto the grass to find the Rampage.
              Notes: The only difference here is that you drive down the main 
                     road toward the Airport. Otherwise the same strategy 
                     applies.

                     If you have the Bulletproof Patriot earned from the 
                     mission "Marked Man" (Ray Machowski) then this Rampage 
                     becomes easier because they cannot damage the vehicle 
                     with gunfire. Thanks to Christopher Mora for that
                     suggestion.

After successful completion of the last Rampage then you will earn your
million dollar bonus and take one more step toward 100% Completion.

                        the Cochrane Dam entrance.
              Heading: East to West.
              Notes: Start at the 90-degree turn, just east of the Cochrane 
                     Dam 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.

| Wichita Gardens (WCG) \
0=====================================================>

[WCG-J16] - A broken twisted bridge
            ***********************
              Location: East of the Turtle Head Fishing Co. (Shoreside Vale).
              Directions: Go to the four-way intersection at the southeast 
                          corner of Punk Noodles. From here, go south and 
                          follow the road curve going east.

                          As you continue going east then you should see a 
                          pair of signs for Mean Street Taxis and "69th 
                          Street" to your left. Just beyond them is a dirt 
                          road.

                          Go north onto the dirt road and it will end at the 
                          broken twisted bridge.
              Heading: South to North and land on the main road in Wichita

[FIA-J17] - A metal ramp
            ************
              Location: By one of the Rockstar planes in the Plane Parking 
                        Area (northeast of the Police Bribe).
              Heading: East 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 
                     should be 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] - A concrete ramp
            ***************
              Location: 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 Jump
                     [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] - A concrete ramp
            ***************
              Location: South of the Plane Parking Area and at the west end 
                        of the Secondary Runway.
              Heading: West to East.
              Notes: From Jump [FIA-J17], head directly south. You should run 
                     into a group of helicopters.

                     Next to these helicopters is a hangar. You have to jump 
                     the hangar using the ramps at the west side of it.

                     You can't touch the hangar with the car 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] - A concrete ramp
            ***************
              Location: East of Jump [FIA-J19].
              Heading: West to East.
              Notes: Get on the runway and start by the concrete ramps for 
                     Jump [FIA-J19]. Then line yourself with the ramps for 
                     Jump [FIA-J20] to clear the hangar.

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

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

At The Fudge Packing Corp., there is a building 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 sixteen vehicles listed that you need to collect. For each vehicle
you obtain you will get $1,000. If you get all sixteen vehicles listed then
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:

  Description: A long stretch limousine.

  Where Found: Can be found near Misty's Building at Hepburn Heights 
               (Portland Island) (evening hours) after completion of the 
               mission "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 then 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 re-jack 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 completion of 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 Flamethrower 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 Flamethrower 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 then they will still go after you but, if they remain in
their cars, then 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 then it will get 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, then they will usually come out.

Quickly run back into the garage and switch to your Flamethrower. 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 then 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 acquiring the Rhino then drive it to the Crane to deposit it. After
completing the list and getting your bonus then get the Rhino Icon.

Then 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 then
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 Staunton View Picnic Area is a Patriot. When you
enter the Patriot then you begin the Patriot vehicle checkpoint side-mission
"Gripped!".

Here you have to collect twenty Checkpoints and you have five minutes to
collect them all.

However, when you get the first Checkpoint, then you have fifteen 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 checkpoint side-missions
in the game. This is mainly because of all of the climbing uphill and trying
to control the Patriot while going downhill.

This vehicle checkpoint side-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 Checkpoint [#1]. Checkpoint [#2] is on a small hill and, if
you try to get it head-on, then you will most likely flip the Patriot. Go to
the left of the Checkpoint and turn right to get it.

Behind Checkpoint [#2] and partway up the rocky part of the hill is
Checkpoint [#3]. Then turn slightly right and you will see two more
Checkpoints [#4, #5].

Checkpoint [#4] is on the left and should be acquired first. After acquiring
Checkpoint [#4] then back up very slightly and get Checkpoint [#5].

When you finally reach the top of the hill then you will see two Checkpoints,
one to the right and one to the left. Get the one to the right first
(Checkpoint [#6]). Be careful, the trees will obscure your vision a bit.

After acquiring Checkpoint [#6] then back up and then whip the Patriot 180
degrees so you can get Checkpoint [#7]. Be careful when you go from the grass
to the rock otherwise you may flip the Patriot off the hill and back into
Wichita Gardens. After acquiring Checkpoint [#7] then turn right and go into
the street.

Turn right and follow the street toward Checkpoint [#8] which is right by the
edge. Go up the street and go between the last tree near the Upstate Tunnel
and the lightpost to get up the hill and claim Checkpoint [#9].

The next three Checkpoints [#10, #11, #12] are relatively easy and you can
get them quickly to accumulate a lot of time. After acquiring Checkpoint
[#12] then turn left and brake slightly going down and then climb up to get
Checkpoint [#13].

Getting Checkpoint [#14] is a bit tricky. From Checkpoint [#13], head right
and make sure that Checkpoint [#14] is off to your left. You will see that
Checkpoint [#14] is partway down the steep hillside.

Turn your Patriot right and position your vehicle so that Checkpoint [#14] is
behind you. Then tap Reverse once and let gravity pull you to Checkpoint
[#14] and tap Accelerate when necessary to keep control.

After acquiring Checkpoint [#14] then hold Accelerate and go straight up to
get Checkpoint [#15]. Then turn left and go back down to get Checkpoint
[#16].

After acquiring Checkpoint [#16] then turn right and you will have to go
practically straight up this pointed hill to get Checkpoint [#17]. Getting
from Checkpoint [#17] to Checkpoint [#18] is dangerous because of the steep
hills so you will have to use Handbrake and Reverse together to keep control.

After acquiring Checkpoint [#18] then turn right and go get Checkpoint [#19].
Checkpoint [#19] is pretty easy to get and after that is Checkpoint [#20].

Checkpoint [#20] is sitting on the top of the west entrance to the Upstate
Tunnel 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 then
you may fall into the street instead and miss the Checkpoint.

Then go down and acquire Checkpoint [#20] to complete the "Gripped!" vehicle
checkpoint side-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 
Firetruck Mission count toward getting the Flamethrower 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 side-missions then you
should now have six Police Bribes plus the Flamethrower 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 in the side-missions "Diablo Destruction", "Mafia Massacre", and
"Casino Calamity", you have to use remote controlled cars to destroy gang
vehicles. In this side-mission, you have to destroy as many Rumpo XL's as you
can in two minutes.

After this side-mission there is no more side stuff in "Grand Theft Auto
III". It is just Main Story missions from here on out starting with.....

  Ray suspects his current partner of ratting him out so he instructs Claude 
  to get a Police Boat and kill him while he is fishing near Portland 
  Rock.....

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

  Sniper Rifle.

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

  Get about 30-50 rounds for the Sniper Rifle.

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

  When the mission begins then 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, then get out and back into your car.

  Drive over to the SupaSave! Store and go into the alley between the parking 
  lot and Portland Docks. Then hang a right when you get to the grass and 
  head to the beach.

  When you get close to the water, and near your target's position, then get 
  out and switch to your Sniper Rifle.

  Fire once at the boat to start the cutscene. After the cutscene ends then 
  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 then 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, then he will jump out. If you are close to 
  the boat then he will head toward you and try to kill you with an AK-47.

  If this happens then use whatever weapon you want to kill him. But, if you 
  are far enough away, then he will take a few steps then stop. When he 
  stops then nail him with your Sniper Rifle.

  By the way, if you kill him in this fashion, then 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 then 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, then the mission is 
  successfully completed.

      Rockford. If he squeals, I squeal..."

  Get a Firetruck and take it with you to Middle Park.

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

  None.

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

  Take the Firetruck and head towards the blip which is the Ambulance 
  carrying the witness. When you smack it the first time then you will be 
  spotted and get a 2-Star Wanted Rating.

  Smack it again to eject the witness who happens to be in a body-cast. The 
  body-cast 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.

  After you run him over with the Firetruck (it may take two tries) then you 
  will finally kill him and successfully 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, then 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.

0=======================>

  Get a fast car, like a Yakuza Stinger, and take it with you to Ray's 
  (optional). Get a Rhino and take it with you to Ray's (optional).

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

  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=======================>

  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 then the best route is through 
  the subway and the nearest entryway is the Liberty Campus Subway Entrance.

  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 then just go up the bridge like you would in 
  a car. The CIA gunmen can't hurt you because 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 then 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 Flamethrower, and an M-16.

  And, by getting to the lock-up, then you also successfully complete the 
  mission.

  Oh, and don't forget to take the Bulletproof Patriot and save it at any of 
  your Safehouse garages for future use.

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

  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. After the 
      cutscene ends then quickly go into Target mode and rocket his car to 
      destroy it and successfully 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 
      any of 8-Ball's Bomb Shops and rig it with a bomb.

  >>The Rhino Method
    ****************
      If you managed to acquire a tank then 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 then follow him.

      If you were to use a regular car and hit this guy's car then 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, then one hit will automatically destroy him 
      and successfully complete the mission. Simple. Then park your tank back 
      in your garage for future use.

0=======================>

  $20,000.

  In addition, you won't be able to any more of Asuka's missions until you do

0=======================>

  When you arrive at the hangar then you find 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 then 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 (the Pan-Lantic Construction Site) 
  to see about getting the package there.

  When you arrive there then 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 then you are prompted 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 then Catalina shoots him and flees.

  When Claude turns around then he is met by Asuka who is upset over the 
  death of Kenji and has blamed the Cartel for it (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 ends then go back to Love Media to successfully 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=======================>

  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 the mission "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 Industrial Import Export 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, then 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 then 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, then it won't work. The designers made it so that 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.

  There are two different strategies to try depending on your style:

  >>Getting Ahead of the Gunmen
    ***************************
      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 then run over Gunman [#1] ahead of you and 
      turn left to do a circle that will allow you to run over Gunman [#2] 
      then 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 then exit your car and switch to your 
      Sniper Rifle. Snipe Gunman [#5] at the top of the tunnel entrance. Then 
      get back in your car and stop at the first intersection in the tunnel.

      When Gunman [#6] appears at the intersection then drive-by him and 
      proceed to the tunnel exit at the Airport.

      After exiting the tunnel then 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 then 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 Cartel Cruisers unless they manage to get lucky and really mess up 
      the Securicar.

  >>Surfing the Securicar
    *********************
      Another interesting way to do this mission is to 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 then 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, then 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 
      then get up on the tunnel sidewalk and stop.

      If you kept the damage to the Securicar to a minimum then 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, then 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, then 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. That's just wrong.

  I've also 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 then 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
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  When you reach the AM Petroleum Company (Shoreside Vale) area then 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 then 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. Then head toward the Shoreside Lift 
  Bridge.

  As you turn south and head toward the three-way intersection for the 
  Airport entrance then veer left slightly and into the oncoming lanes.

  After you get past the Sumo billboard and the overhead road signs then 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 Flamethrower 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, then stand 
  still and wait for the officers to exit their car and drive-by them when 
  they approach.

  After the timer runs out then the mission is successfully completed.

  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 down 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 then grab the Yakuza Stinger parked nearby. When 
  you get to Pike Creek then you will activate to first death squad.

  Lure it to the ambush point. If you get too far ahead then you will lose 
  them and fail the mission.

  When you successfully lure them to the ambush point then use the ramp for 
  Jump [PKC-J14] to get out of the way, jump down into the street below, and 
  let the Yakuza do their work.

  If you wreck the car then go to the nearby Fudge Packing Corp. to get 
  another car (if you completed the Suburban Import Export Garage list) or 
  jack one from the street.

  Lure the other two death squads to the ambush point. When the last of the 
  squads are killed then the mission is successfully completed.

0=======================>

  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 then you will be chased by a Cartel Cruiser. But it 
  usually doesn't give much trouble.

  Another reader, David, pointed out that the Cartel Cruiser is parked by the 
  Mean Street Taxis/"69th Street" billboards near the Francis International 
  Airport area. Destroy him while cruising for the Stands and you won't have 
  to worry about it anymore.

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

  There are nine stands throughout Liberty City. When you destroy the first 
  one then 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 a small park in St. Mark's.
     >>[#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 then 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 then 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 then 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 then 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 Middle Park.
     >>[#7] - In front of the building south of the Multistory Car-Park 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 destroy the last two stands:

     >>[#8] - By the Francis International Airport Subway Entrance.
     >>[#9] - In front of Hope Medical College in Pike Creek.

  Destroy these two to successfully complete the mission. Park the 
  Bulletproof Patriot at your Wichita Gardens garage for later use (if you 
  have it and use it).

  An alternate vehicle you can use for this mission is the Rhino. It's slow 
  but you don't have to worry about the hostile gangs shooting up your 
  vehicle.

  Because of the slow speed then you will need to use the Tank Gun Boost when 
  going up the bridges. In addition, there's a good chance that when you do 
  that then you will attract Police attention and they can smack the Rhino 
  and, even though they explode against it, it will slow you down which will 
  delay you and possibly allow a Cop the opportunity to get up to your door 
  and bust you before you can get away.

  If you can control the Rhino enough to keep the Wanted Ratings to a minimum 
  then you can still finish this mission with about a minute to spare but 
  you will need to use the Tank Gun Boost on the bridges to help speed things 
  along.

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

  When Claude arrives at the construction site he finds Maria has joined 
  Asuka in torturing Miguel. He reveals that a plane carrying more SPANK will 
  be arriving soon at the airport.

  Asuka wants Claude to get a boat, go to one of the marker buoys, use a 
  Rocket Launcher to shoot the plane down, grab the stuff and stash it.....

0=======================>

  Rocket Launcher, Sniper Rifle.

| The Plan \
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.

  However, there are two other, and 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, then switch to your Sniper Rifle and kill all six 
      Columbians. 

      If you get too close then 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 then rocket it. In the process of 
      destroying the plane you will get a 4-Star Wanted Rating.

      Get back to your car and collect all eight packages 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 then 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, then 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 just 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, then 
      pick up all eight packages and 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, then you 
  begin 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."

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

  $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 Safehouse there so I 
  can get started with.....

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

  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=======================>

  You need to drive-by twenty Purple Nines to complete this mission and there 
  are two methods to go about doing it depending on your style.....

  >>The BulletProof Patriot
    ***********************
      One of the problems with this method is that, when you start 
      drive-bying, then you will get accosted by the Hoods Rumpo XL vans that 
      roam Wichita 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 Safehouse to the parking 
      lot behind it. Just go up and down this stretch of road to claim your 
      victims.

      Since your Patriot is bulletproof then 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 
         whodie 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 kill the last Purple Nine then the mission is successfully 
  completed. If you used the Rhino then go and park it back at the Staunton 
  Island garage so you can use it later.

  Gardens Shortcut to go to the Porter Tunnel and drive to Portland.

  Don't worry about the Mafia when you arrive at St. Mark's. 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 then 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. Damage it and you 
  will have to take it back to the Pay 'N' Spray.

  After you have it parked back in its original spot then the mission is

  After picking up a few pieces then you will attract the attention of the 
  Cops. Head left at the intersection then turn right at the next to make

  If you can do this right then you can get all of the pieces you need in one

  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 got another suggestion by Hari Vikram that works pretty good too.

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

  When you start the mission then 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 then you will see the other 
  three cars come up to challenge you: a Patriot, a Cheetah, and a Bobcat.

  When the race starts then 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 then 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 then 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 then 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 acquire all fifteen Checkpoints. If you 
  manage to blow up your car in the process then just go get another one and 
  proceed.

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

  $1,000 times the numbers of Checkpoints acquired (up to a maximum of 
  $15,000).

  And you may want to acquire and store a Diablo Stallion in any of your 
  garages before doing the next mission. This vehicle will be needed later in 
  the game.

  When you start the mission then King Courtney will send over a couple of

  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 then you will attract their attention and they will try to 
  yank you from the car.

  Since your car is a lousy Perennial then they can do that pretty easy. If 
  they yank you from the car then you fail the mission.

  The best thing to do is to run them over. Most times they won't come after 
  you because they think of you as just another stupid driver.

  After killing ten Diablos then make your way back to the blue circle in 
  Yardie turf to successfully complete the mission.

0=======0

0=======================>

  $10,000.

  In addition, the Diablos will now be hostile to you when you travel through 
  Hepburn Heights. This is why you acquire the Diablo Stallion beforehand.

  And the reason you need the Diablo Stallion, and the Mafia Sentinel you had 
  to get earlier, will lead to the next mission.....

  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.

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

  If you followed the earlier suggestion by Scott Exeter then simply take 
  your gang cars from your garages and drive them to the drop-off 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 then head over to the Pay 'N' Spray to 
  have it repaired before depositing. Or, if you don't mind a little 
  cheating, then 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 then the mission is successfully completed.

  King Courtney wants Claude to get the stash from an old car in Bedford

| The Plan \
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 then 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 then use the Rocket Launcher. 
  If they are close then use either the Grenades or the Molotovs.

  If you have the Rhino then this becomes easier. When you get the tank on 
  Staunton Loop (West) going south then use the Tank Gun Boost to increase 
  speed.

  When you regain control of the Rhino after the cutscene ends then get out 
  and quickly get into your tank. The bombers won't try to yank you from the 
  Rhino, they will just explode harmlessly 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 successfully complete the mission.

0=======0
| Reward \
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. This is the main 
  reason I saved this one before the last Main Story Mission.

  Go back to the Shoreside Vale Safehouse 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 need to have at least $500,000 to do this mission but at this point
it should not be a problem since you should have at least ten times that
amount from doing everything else beforehand.

  When Claude arrives at the Villa then 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.....

  Have a fast car in your Wichita Gardens garage (optional). Have the 
  Bulletproof Patriot saved at your Wichita Gardens garage (optional).

| Notes \
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, 
  then you can do whatever you want without getting any Wanted Ratings. 

  However, as I played around with this, 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 tebox came up with a different weapon to take down the 
  helicopter. And reader Robin Blackstone made a suggestion for the Xbox 
  version.

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

  When the mission begins then 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 of The Mansion 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 Mansion then you will see a chopper fly overhead. When 
  you regain control again then go to the small wall nearby (and near the 
  lightpost) and veer off the road over the wall.

  If the Cruiser survives the plunge then go to your Safehouse. If not then 
  grab another car and make a mad dash 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 destroy 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 down.

  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, go to the first set of container crates, and get 
  out. Rocket the Barracks OL and snipe the other guards.

  Go back into your car and go to next set of container crates just past the 
  exploded Barracks OL. Get out, 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 container crates.

  Just as you get past the second set of container crates then 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, then turn around and head back up the road 
  then turn west after the Dam entrance and stop at the nearby hairpin turn 
  (this is also Jump [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 then rocket it to destroy it. According 
  to reader tebox 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 Cochrane Dam Power House.

  Believe it or not, you can actually see Maria and her captors from your 
  position when you zoom in with your Sniper Rifle. Take down the Columbians 
  that you can see then re-enter your car, go back to the Dam base and stop 
  by the second set of container crates.

  It should be noted that this doesn't work on the Xbox version because the 
  Sniper Rifle can't zoom in that far. But, according to Robin Blackstone, 
  you can still take them down from a distance if you climb to the top of the 
  stairs for the small building built into the dam closest to them (this will 
  also work on the PC and PS2 versions as well).

  When you get back to the second set of container crates then snipe any 
  guards you see then go to the stairs that leads to the roof of the Cochrane 
  Dam Power House.

  Take down any remaining guards then walk up to Maria and rescue her to 
  successfully complete the mission.

  $1,000,000 ($500,000 plus the ransom money).

  In addition, you've unlocked the Rhino at Phil Cassidy's Army Surplus. If 
  you haven't acquired the tank for the Emergency Crane list then take it 
  from the Army Surplus and deposit it at the Emergency Crane to complete the 
  list.

  This should also get you the.....

And what is your reward for getting 100%?

Well, nothing. Nothing except the satisfaction of getting it.

This was something that was fixed for the later GTAs but here you get nada.
Zero. Zip.

But does this take away from this great game? Not really. It is still a fun
game even if you really get nothing at the "end".

If you place the PS2 version of GTA3 in a computer and look around on the
disc then you may find a file called "american.gxt". If you open it in a text 
editor then you will find all sorts of garbage characters.

But, when you manage to clean out some of the garbage, then 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 that they can be
presented here:

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

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."

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

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"

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

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!"

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

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.....
