  "John Zurhellen is a recurring voice actor, writer, director and cinemato-
grapher in the Grand Theft Auto series and for Rockstar Games in general.  He
has provided his voice for characters such as Jethro and Jeremy St. Ives.  He
has also provided voices for random pedestrians and for the radio."

  According to the IMDb web site:

  "The game runs on the RAGE game engine, the same engine that powers Rockstar
Games Presents Table Tennis (2006) (VG).  It also uses Euphoria animation soft-
ware by NaturalMotion, allowing realistic body physics such as catching ledges
before falling over, and stumbling when intoxicated.

  "Dan Houser, co-founder of Rockstar Games, confirmed at E3's 2006 convention
that the game will feature Multi Conventional Tesseract technology otherwise
known as MCT or 'Octachoronics.'  This will allow for sharper and more innova-
tive game play residing in assimilated artificial weather control systems.  The
in-game weather will never appear to be the same twice.  Each rain drop will
contain 20 herds."

  III.1  In The Beginning....  (cutscene intro)

  Nikolai "Niko" Bellic: Michael Andrew Hollick

  Michael was a theater student at the fine Carnegie Mellon University in love-
ly Pittsburgh, PA.  He supplied Niko's voice and motion acting and won the 2008
Spike award for Best Male Voice Actor.  He also played Barry Epstein in a 2007
episode of the TV series "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," provided the voice of
Ronald "Razor" Tomasino for the "Cuisine & Cargo" DLC for the 2015 game "Dying
Light," etc.

  Interview with Michael Hollick about "GTA IV":
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxsgATC88l4

  Niko came from Bosnia in Yugoslavia where he fought in the Bosnian War for
the Serbian side.  He looks somewhat like Sasha played by Vladimir Mashkov in
the 2001 movie "Behind Enemy Lines" and you can have Niko wear similar clothes
from the Russian Shop.  In the YouTube video "Vladimir Mashkov about GTA 4"
Vladimir says he plays video games and is glad "GTA IV" became a best seller
but didn't take it seriously when he was offered to be paid to have his like-
ness used for it.

  Roman Bellic: Jason Zumwalt who, aside from TV and film roles, supplied the
voice acting for Vlad in "Saints Row 2," 2008, (I'm not sure which character
in) "Red Dead Redemption," 2010, and Terrance Stone in "Mafia II," 2010.  He was
also one of the several writers for "Urge," 2015.

  On a freighter, the Platypus, to Liberty City, Niko says he got into trouble
before his job on the freighter.

  (Game trailers indicate he killed, smuggled, and sold people, which indicates
he was given the worst roles in a fight but survived.  He's been searching for
some man for ten years--and wants a better life.  But he seems destined to get
into similar trouble and fights to get ahead in Liberty City.)
  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AeQIG9t1NYM

  Niko gets off the freighter to be greeted by his drunken cousin Roman who
emigrated to the USA ten years before Niko.  Roman wants Niko to drive him
home.


  Roman Bellic's missions

  III.2  The Cousins Bellic

  Have Niko drive Roman home.

  (Liberty City minute tip: you can have Niko turn around, make a left at the
end of the containers, and go south for a faster route to Roman's place.)

  Have Niko drive Roman to his apartment on Mohawk Ave. in Hove Beach, Broker.
On the way, Roman says a terrorist scare had made it hard to get across bridges
in the city.  We learn about the GPS, etc.  If you use the default GPS route,
Roman tells Niko when they pass the cab company (Express Car Service) Roman
owns.

  At Roman's place, a grungy apartment with cockroaches, Niko confronts Roman
about lying in his Emails about being a big success with a mansion, sexy women,
sports cars, etc., but Roman says he could be better off with Niko's help.

  Roman feels Niko hasn't told him what the trouble was that drove Niko there--
just that he rsn with the wrong kind then joined the merchant navy.  Niko says
something bad happened before he joined the navy--"during the war, we did some
bad things and bad things happened to us.  War is where the young and stupid
are tricked by the old and bitter into killing each other.  I was very young
and very angry--maybe that is no excuse."

  Roman has to get his cab back to the cab company so he tells Niko to meet him
there--the corner of Iroquois Ave. and Cisco St.  Roman says he has something
for Niko but Roman gets an angry call from his loan shark Vlad and hurries back
to his cab company.

  An icon on the map/radar marks Roman's apartment.  We can save the game by
having Niko sleep on the bed (send Niko to the bed and press F) at Roman's
apartment.  As in recent GTA's, saving the game advances the game six hours.
An "R" on the map/radar shows us where to send Niko to meet Roman.

  Niko gets $25 and the "Off the Boat" Achievement.

  (Liberty City Minute tips: you can have Niko save time by jumping down from or
climbing up to the railing instead of using the upper stairs by his apartment.
Jumping speeds up the use of stairs.  You can have him use the hotdog stand
across the street to boost his Health instead of saving the game and advancing
time.  You can use auto-save instead of having him return to a save place to
save the game.  And obviously a submachine gun or rifle lets Niko kill enemies
faster than he can with a handgun and can be used to destroy a four wheel vehi-
cle--have him shoot at a wheel well till it's on fire.)

****


  IV  Preliminaries for the rest of part one

  IV.1  Save places and parking spaces part one

  In "GTA IV," save places are provided by Niko's cousin Roman, Roman's girl-
friend Mallorie, by killing Playboy X, and by Ray Boccino.  They contain a bed
which replaces the save pickups of previous GTAs, a wardrobe, and a parking
space for saving vehicles which replaces the garages used for that in previous
GTAs.

  Niko's first save place is Roman's apartment on the west side of Mohawk Ave.
south of Bart St., Hove Beach, Broker.  It has a TV he can use (I.14) and he
can save a couple vehicles in the parking space.  Once Niko has clothes to
chose from, it has a marker which can be activated to change clothes (except
for the Claude outfit which only appears at Playboy X' apartment and only if
Niko kills him).

  Roman's apartment becomes unavailable after "Roman's Sorrow" (V.32), which is
when Mallorie's apartment on Joliet Ave., South Bohan, becomes available.


  Despite for the difficulty created by getting a six star wanted level for going
into a territory before it's legally available, Niko can use any of the parking
spaces of the game any time from the beginning of the game.

  - Roman Bellic's apartment, the west side of Mohawk Ave. south of Bart St.,
Hove Beach, Broker

  - Mallorie Bardas' apartment, the east side of Joliet Ave. south of Hollowback
St., South Bohan

  Niko can save two vehicles at a parking space.  He can repair a vehicle
that's parked there by going away from it and returning to it.

  If you save a motorcycle in one, have it lean toward the curb.  Between saves
it may move in the direction it leans, and the curb may stop it and keep it
saved.


  IV.2  Maps

  (Note to Rockstar: *please* make your paper maps out of something a little
more durable.  Without any rough handling, I used mine to make sure of street
names, etc., while working on the maps used in this walk-through and by the
time I was done I was handling several pieces of paper map that were coming
apart.  Please set the color for the land off from the color for the streets
with more contrast, too, as with the in-game map.)

  "Simple Trainer" by sjaak327

  I recommend the Simple Trainer (section X.12.e) to have the option to have
blips for spawn spots for Health, Armor, weapons, and Flying Rats appear on the
radar and in-game map.  It also lets you have Niko teleport to Flying Rats,
stunt jumps, etc., lets you use NP0 + O to have Niko teleport to waypoints, lets
you turn off the wanted rating system, and lets you use the Airbreak function to
raise Niko to the more elevated pigeons and have a NoClip function.  (Plus it
has more options otherwise than you'll probably ever use.)

  http://www.gtagarage.com/mods/show.php?id=5646


  IV.3  GPS

  GPS (Global Positioning System) routes appear to suggest routes to take during
missions.  Otherwise, you can set a waypoint, a green dot, to create a route on
the in-game map.  The route shown corrects itself if you miss a turn.

  In the Audio menu you can choose to have the GPS system also give audio direc-
tions in middle class and better cars with Selected Cars, all cars with On, or
no cars with Off.

  Niko can also bring up a map to set a waypoint for a Taxi ride from "Bull in
a China Shop" onward (V.10).


  IV.4  Money

  As in previous GTA's, dead pedestrians may leave various amounts of money be-
hind.

  A fast way to have Niko get money: "Occasionally, if the player kills a ped-
estrian who just used an ATM, massive amounts of money will spawn repeatedly on
the ground.  This will happen even with cops, who normally only drop their pis-
tol."
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Automated_Teller_Machine

  See the site at the link above for the many locations.  A couple close to
Niko's first save place are the north side of Crockett Ave. just east of Mohawk
Ave. and the west side of Mohawk Ave. west of the west end of Tulsa St.

  Cash registers which can be robbed (Action key)

  - the pottery, etc., store ("Bull in a China Shop") on the north side of Hunt-
ington St. just west of Camden Ave. (Niko has to break a window to enter; the
floor in the back isn't solid; the clock keeps game time)
  - the Modo clothes store on north Vauxite St./west Exeter Ave., North Holland,
Algonquin
  - tw@ on the west side of Oneida Ave. north of Cisco St., Broker
  - tw@ on the east side of Frankfort Ave. south of Wardite S., North Holland,
Algonquin
  - tw@ on the east side of Vitulla Ave. east of Kemeny St., Alderney
  - the laundramat on the east side of Oneida Ave. south of Tulsa St.
  - the laundromat on the north side of Harrison St. on the block east of the
East Island Bridge, East Island City
  - the laundromat on the north side of Hubbard Ave. just west of Mahesh Ave.,
Alderney City, Alderney

  Have Niko go to the cash register and press the Action key to have it open and
for him to take the money.  He gets a one star wanted level.  (You can have him
shoot the owner before they can set off the alarm but he gets a one star wanted
level anyway.)
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Cash_Register

  (The ATM and cash register examples above are also given in the "ATM machine
infinite money gimmick" and "Knocking off stores" segments at "Fun glitches,
gimmicks, etc." I.12.b.)

  Thanks to Rob Rusk for the tip that Niko can also destroy Securicars for up
to $1,000 each.  He recommends having Niko use another vehicle, ram it till
it's burning, park it beside the Securicar, and run away to cause the Securicar
to blow up.  Niko can then have the money while avoiding the two star wanted
rating created by having Niko shoot the Securicar.

  "The GTA IV Securicar will spawn a large amount of cash around it if blown
up, but doing so with weapons will immediately attract a 2 stars wanted level,
regardless of where it is done.  To avoid this, the player can use one of the
car-bombs supplied by Patrick McReary (this is his friendship bonus) to blow up
the car, or damage it enough while driving it that it will burst into flames
and explode."
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Securicar


  IV.5  Internet Cafe--items shown on a computer

  Niko can use the computer in the tw@ Internet Cafe on the west side of Oneida
Ave. north of Cisco St., Broker, for $1.  Afterward, an icon for the location
will appear on the map.

  At http://www.libertycitypolice.com/, Niko can click on "Database" to get Police in-
formation on many characters of the game--Lola Del Rio--the hooker featured on
the box art, Eddie Low, the No-Name Killer, and himself.  (Thanks to spencerleo
in "Secrets FAQ" by The Duff Man)
  http://www.gamefaqs.com/xbox360/933037-grand-theft-auto-iv/faqs/52645

  At http://www.whattheydonotwantyoutoknow.com/, Niko can see maps of Flying Rats,
weapons, Health, Random Character locations, Body Armor, cars to steal for
Stevie's vehicle collection (IX.16), Places to hang out with friends, and
Unique Stunt Jumps.
  http://thegtadomain.com/gtaiv/maps.php

  Other websites
  http://www.grandtheftwiki.com/Websites_in_GTA_IV

  Niko will learn to use Eyefind Emails in "Logging On."

  The photocopier behind the cashier's desk is a Kakagawa Power Ultra 3000 Pro.
If you have Niko use the scope of a sniper rifle to zoom in on it you can see
that the screen of the photocopier says: ERROR Unleash ninja guru lol.
  http://www.grandtheftwiki.com/TW@
  http://www.grandtheftwiki.com/Secrets_in_GTA_IV
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Kakagawa

  I list more activities available to Niko at the start of the game after these
lists of some of the important locations and spawn spots:


  IV.6  Some clothes, vehicle, car wash, skate park, and strip club locations
part one
    and a sex shop

  These places are available from the start of the game.


  Clothes

  Russian Shop

  This Eastern European clothes store is on the same side of Mohawk Ave. as
Niko's first save place but north of Bart St.  The clothes are the least expen-
sive of those of the three clothes stores of the game and it's the only clothes
store that sells sunglasses and hats.  An icon for the clothes store will ap-
pear on the map after Niko enters the store.

  Later, Michelle and Kiki Jenkins will prefer these clothes for Niko.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Russian_Shop

  (A couple other clothes stores will be available when Algonquin is legally
available, and a handful of outfits will be available after certain missions in
Algonquin and Alderney.)
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Clothing_in_GTA_IV
  http://en.wikigta.org/wiki/Clothes_store_locations_%28GTA_IV%29

  If you pause after Niko boards a motorcycle he'll put on a helmet.


  Vehicles

  Turismo

  - the driveway of Mikhail Faustin's mansion on the west side of the south end
of Shinnecock Ave., Beachgate (the southeast end of the map).

  NRG 900

  - by a red and white tower north of the north runway at Francis International
Airport.  Have Niko approach from the lawn northwest of the runway to avoid a
four star wanted rating.

  - on the north and south sides of the airport control tower which is where
the two runways meet.  You may need to have Niko leave the area and return to
make them spawn.

  The Blista, Schafter, Sentinel, and Taxi are among the better cars found in
traffic around Broker.

  The NOOSE Cruiser, used for roadblocks at a three star wanted level, the
NOOSE Patriot, which also appears at a three star wanted level, and the FIB
Buffalo, which appears at four or more wanted stars, are good performing cars
and useful for vigilante missions so worth trying to jack and save.

  PCJ 600, NRG 900, Banshee, Feltzer, Patriot, Sabre GT, Sanchez, etc.:

  - Brucie's Exotic Exports car theft missions (V.28)

  Squalo

  - at a pier on the north side of the big rectangular section of coast west of
the south end of the Dukes Bay Bridge

  - at the first pier, viewed west to east, on the north coast of Dukes


  Car washes

  - in the southern part of the east side of Tutelo Ave. in the western part of
Beechwood City

  - on the east side of Saratoga Ave. east of the east end of Lynch St.

  Taxis are only charged $3, not the usual $5, for a car wash.  Convertibles
are washed by hand with a cloth.  (Thanks to Douglas Rampazo/whatever57010)
  "Fan Facts #7" by whatever57010
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QO9Ev9SnOlE


  Skate park

  - Steinway Park in Dukes
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Skate_Park

  Niko can enter the area with any vehicle.  You can have him use a motorcycle
to do flips and other stunts on the vert ramps (the big curved structures).
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vert_ramp


  Strip club

  - The Triangle Club, Northern Gardens, Bohan, on the north side of the south-
ern part of Coxsack Ave.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/The_Triangle_Club

The main area of the Triangle Club plays Vibe 98.8 songs.  (Electro-Choc
songs are played in both it and Honkers, Alderney, in the disc version of "Epi-
sodes From Liberty City.")  Three songs, one for each level, are played for lap
dances.  Strippers approach Niko and offer a lap dance--if you have him accept,
have him follow her to a back room for up to three levels of lap dancing.

  1. For $50 Niko gets a lap dance by a single stripper and usually hears "Come
Into My Life" by Rick James (except in Honkers).

  2. For another $50 he gets another lap dance from her and hears "Ooh La La"
by Goldfrapp.

  3. For an added $150 a second dancer is added and he hears "Shake Ya Ass" by
Mystikal.

  Security guards caution Niko to not bear a weapon if he wants to enter and
attack Niko, and regular activities stop, if he scares patrons with a weapon.
A strip club is one of the places Niko can take a friend--for positive credit
with friends who like strip clubs, have Niko get at least one level of a lap
dance.  A friend like Roman helps Niko fight security guards.

  If garters have money stuffed into them they're $69 bills.
  http://www.grandtheftwiki.com/Strip_club

  Sex shop

  The sex shop with a yellow awning advertising books, magazines, and comics on
the north side of the south curve of Delaware Ave. (where the "D" of "Delaware"
is on the paper map) is open from the start of the game.


  Avoiding the $5 fee and wanted rating at the toll booths

  Niko can use a motorcycle or small car, like a Blista, in the narrow area be-
tween the east-west toll booths at the East Borough Bridge of Charge Island to
go by without paying the $5 toll or getting a Wanted Rating.  He could also get
a motorcycle through the narrow area at either far side of the road to get by
without paying or getting a wanted rating on that bridge or the Dukes Bay
Bridge. (Thanks to Rob Rusk)

  Thanks to whatever57010 for the tip that Niko can drive a larger vehicle on
the fast lane of two on the East Borough Bridge of Charge Island, turn left be-
tween the north-south booths, then turn right and continue without paying the
toll or getting a wanted rating.
  "Even more stuff you may not have known about Gta IV" by whatever57010  
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOltDEPYbR0

  If Niko uses an emergency vehicle, he can get past the toll booths without
paying in one of the regular lanes.  You can also let Niko avoid paying the
by having him park at the gate, call 911 for an emergency vehicle, and go
through when the gate opens for the emergency vehicle.

  When you have Niko pay $5, don't get hasty and have Niko's vehicle hit the
bar or he may get a wanted rating anyway.


  IV.7  Fixed spawn spots of First Aid Kits, Body Armor, and weapons part one

  These are the fixed spawn locations of weapon, First Aid kit (Health), and
Body Armor pickups that can be found throughout the game in the eastern part of
Liberty City.  The pickups of weapons and Body Armor glow red and the pickups
of First Aid kits glow green.

  For weapons that share the same ammo, you could go to pickups for the strong-
er weapon (Combat Pistol, Combat Shotgun, SMG, Carbine Rifle, Combat Sniper Ri-
fle) last.

  Weapons respawn in six minutes and five seconds if Niko is far enough from
the spawn spot that the glow would be about gone.

  Health and Armor pickups respawn in 45 seconds if Niko is far enough from the
spawn spot that the glow would be about gone.

  How to make the Pistol. Pump Shotgun, and Sniper Rifle automatic--"Fun
glitches, gimmicks, etc." (I.12.b)

  How to increase Assault/Carbine rifle ammo faster--"Fun glitches, gimmicks,
etc. (I.12.b)

  Delacroix recommends this safe way to have Niko get a lot of ammo before you
have him travel to the various spawn spots: have Niko go outside and shoot peo-
ple to get a wanted level then go inside and stand on his bed.  The police can
only get in through the door so it's easy to have Niko to pick them off till
they've created a lot of weapon pickups.  Then press F and save the game.  "When
you get back your Health is 100% and mostly, the guns of the dead cops are
still there--free guns and no deaths."
  http://gtaforums.com/topic/384210-how-to-build-up-a-huge-weapons-haul/

  If you want to save time you could give Niko Health, Armor, weapons, etc.,
with the "Simple Trainer" (aka "Native Trainer") by sjaak327.  It also has the
option of putting blips for these things on the in-game map and radar.

  Weapon map by wikigta.org

  A map by TheGoldenState (Gianni Van Heusden) which shows weapons, Armor, and
First Aid Kits is at the next link.
  http://www.gamefaqs.com/pc/952150-grand-theft-auto-iv/faqs/55688

  Thanks to TheGoldenState (Gianni Van Heusden) for giving me permission to ad-
just the colors of his map so it's easier to read on a black and white print
out.  I labelled things with numbers that correspond to numbers in my descrip-
tions to make it a bit more ergonomic.

  (The reason the first cases of Armor and Health are numbered "0" is because I
realized I needed to add them after working on the rest of the map.)

 http://glenster1.webs.com/GTA4_WeaponsArmorMedPacks_TheGoldenState_Recolored_BohanDukesBroker_Numbered_Update3.png

  I recommend printing the map shown above and my descriptions given below.


  First Aid kits (Health)

  0. It's on the kitchen counter of the lowest deck at the south end of the
Platypus--the big ship docked north of the east end of the Broker Bridge.
  Before "A Dish Served Cold" you can have Niko get to the pickup by jumping
from a helicopter to one of the upper southern decks then going down the
stairs.
  1. It's on the roof of the three story building at the northwest corner of
Oakley St./Delaware Ave.  (It's at the "nostril" of the cartoon "nose" of Oak-
ley St.)
  Have Niko use a fire escape to the roof on the north side of the building.
  2. It's on the ground in the narrow space between the red brick RIGHTCAB CO.
building and the tall stone support wall for Mohawk Ave.
  Have Niko get to the narrow space via an entrance on the east side of the
most northeast part of Delaware Ave. north of Cisco St.
  3. it's on the wall of a little ground floor room in the middle of the south
side of the red factory building (indicated by a rectangle on the radar and
maps) that's on the north side of the northern of two dead end roads of the
Broker Navy Yard.
  Have Niko enter the building on the west side.
  4. It's on the ground by a green dumpster at the end of a little dead end al-
ley by a lot on the east side of what is either the south end of Creek St. or
the north end of Monhanet Ave. (?).  The lot is across the street from the
southern part of the Twitchin's SUGAR plant.
  5. It's on the wall on the left just inside the entrance doors of the Schot-
tler Medical Center which is at the loop of road on the north side of Cassidy
St. east of Montauk Ave.
  6. It's on the inside of the west wall of the open garage on the south side
of the AUTO REPAIR/EXPRESS WASH AND LUBE CENTER which is on the west side of
Saratoga Ave. just south of the on/off ramps for the Algonquin-Dukes Express-
way.
  7. It's on the back wall of the MEDICAL OFFICE (white sign with faded grey-
red letters) which is beside wng's BEAUTY SUPPLY shop (purple awning with white
and pink letters), which is on the east side of Saratoga Ave. south of Howard
St.
  8. It's on the wall at the south side of the courtyard of the NUCA building.
  Have Niko go through the courtyard gate on the east side of Dukes Blvd. north
of Harrison St.
  9. It's on the side of a grey-green metal utility box on a catwalk at the
Charge Island Water Treatment Facility.  On the map/radar there are five large
grey round spots representing five huge water tanks on Charge Island.  The cat-
walk is east of the south end of the fourth tank viewed south to north.
  Have Niko go to the northeast side of the most southern tank, climb the lad-
der to the top of the tank, go along the catwalk, and take the first right turn
to the utility unit.
  10. It's on a wall of the small office just inside the (working) door of the
Sprunk storage building on the east side of Attica Ave. at the intersection of
Attica Ave./Hollowback St.
  11. It's in Industrial on the floor in the southwest area of the first floor
of the abandoned warehouse which is the northern building of the big complex of
buildings south of the pentagram created on the maps and radar by the southern
part of the Northern Expressway and the loop of road (Lompoc Ave.?) to the
southeast of it.  The warehouse is represented on the in-game map and radar by
the top part of a grey shape that looks something like a submachine gun with a
long handle--the warehouse is the part above the "handle."
  Have Niko go south of the southeast corner of the pentagram to enter the
warehouse grounds and use the warehouse entrance at ground level just north of
the north end of the east side of the "handle."
  12.  It's on a counter by a mirror in the dressing room in the upper area of
the southeast corner of the Triangle Club.  Niko will anger the security guards
by going there.  The road to the entrance of the club is the dead end road on
the north side of the southern part of Coxsack Ave.
  13. It's leaning against the wall on a landing below a "MEDICAL & DENTAL CEN-
TER" sign on the south side of the building on the east side of the northern
and north-south segment of Leavenworth Ave.
  14. It's by the bleachers of the northern basketball court west of the north-
ern section of Uprock St.  The entrance is on the north side of the east-west
walkway between Uprock St. and Butterfly St.
  
  Armor

  0. It's on a counter in the top cabin, the control room, at the south end of
the Platypus--the big ship which is docked north of the east end of the Broker
Bridge.
  Before "A Dish Served Cold" you can have Niko get to the pickup by jumping
from a helicopter to one of the upper southern decks then using the stairs as
needed.
  1. It's on the catwalk of the Chiropractic Overnight billboard on the south
wall of the Comrades Bar building on the east side of Mohawk Ave. by the hot
dog vendor across the street from your first save place.
  Have Niko go west to the intersection of Oneida Ave. and Hardin St., go north-
west on the unnamed road, go west up an off ramp for the Broker Bridge till
over the building, jump over the railing onto the building, and go south to the
southern area of the roof.
  Thanks to Robert Rusk for this strategy.  Have Niko go to the eastern low
wall and use the most southeast 90 degree angle in it north of the southeast
corner to climb onto the low wall, walk south on it then west around the corner
toward the billboard, and walk west veering more and more over the top of the
billboard till he drops onto it.  Have him do the same basic thing to drop onto
the catwalk but leave most of the catwalk ahead of him so when he rolls when he
lands he won't roll off of it.
  2. It's on the bed of a rusty junked pickup truck.
  Have Niko go to the north side of Ringo St. east of Mohegan Ave., go over the
wall just north of the blue dumpster, and the truck will be right in front of
him.
  3. It's by the east side of the front doorsteps behind on open pair of tall
black iron gates.
  Have Niko go to the north side of Sundance St. east of the Soldiers Plaza
(Montauk Ave.?) circle, go north up the sloped grassy alley, and turn right.
  4. It's in the narrow grassy area between the south side wall of the off-ramp
going north to the airport from the Broker-Dukes Expressway and the 8' (?)
stone wall at the south side of the airport fuel truck, etc., area.
  Have Niko go southeast over the off-ramp railing toward the north end of
western north-south wall of the airport fuel truck, etc., area.  The wall for
that area is indicated on the maps and radar by a grey line that encloses an
area with two round spots.
  5. It's between the third and fourth of six large horizontal fans on the roof
of a large facility building west of the north-south entrance road at the south
end of the Tudor St. loop.
  Have Niko use any of four ladders to go to and from the roof.
  6. It's in the red bowl with two chopsticks, a novelty advertisement, on the
corner of the roof of the SUM YUNG GAI restaurant at the southeast corner of
Huntington St./Inchon Ave.
  Have Niko go to the southeast corner of Huntington St./Charleston Ave., go up
to the first level of the Huntington St. subway station, go west on the south
side of the track till nearest the bowl, and jump down to it.  The south side
of the taller building to the east has a fire escape you can have Niko use to
get back to ground level.
  7. It's by the western of two metal frames for billboards on the lowest roof
of a big mainly yellow building covered with graffiti.
  Have Niko go north from the northern corner of Dukes Blvd./Stone St. to the

Walton Lane/Stillwater Ave. intersection of pedestrian walks.
  9. It's on the ground by the light tower at the north end of the northern
runway at the airport.  Thanks to Robert Rusk for the tip to have Niko go over
the grass and not the tarmac to avoid a four star wanted rating.
  10. It's on a stony section of beach at the north coast of Steinway beneath a
wooden ramp that connects a dock to a pedestrian park.  The ramp is on the east
side of the largely rectangular and largest projection of land north of the
eastern segment of Dukes Dr.
  11. It's by a grey-green metal utility box on the metal catwalk onramp north
of the three small water tanks east of the most southern of the five biggest
water tanks on Charge Island.  All of these tanks are represented by round grey
spots on the maps and radar.
  Have Niko enter the area from the grey brick street that's east of the on-
ramp.
  12. It's on the ground by three big wooden spools at the east end of the sec-
ond dock, viewed north to south, that projects from the west side of Charge Is-
land.
  13. It's at the southeast corner of the top floor of the several story unfin-
ished building south of the east segment of Rocket St.  The building is repre-
sented by a grey square on the maps and radar.  The entrance stairway is on the
south side of the building.
  14. It's by a large green shipping crate near the bottom of a sloped driveway
past a working chain link fence gate on the south side of the eastern segment
of the most southern east-west part of Valdez St.
  15. It's on a sloped part of a wooden dock on the west side of the 90 degree
section of coast south of the east end of the Northwood Heights Bridge.

  Baseball bat

in the empty lot on the east side of Mohawk Ave. due east from the front door
of the Hove Beach save place.
  3. It's leaned against the eastern suspension cable tower on the northern side-
walk of the subway track part of the Algonquin Bridge.
  You can have Niko drive to the tower on the ground above the subway track and
walk along the edge veering more and more over the sidewalk till he drops down
to it or use the entrance to the sidewalk--the northern of two entrances on the
west side of Brunner St. below the Algonquin Bridge.
  4. It's leaned against the railing of a metal walk on top of the upper and
larger of a pair of horizontal tanks on the north side of the Ron gas station
on the east side of Cleves Ave. across the street from the east end of the road
that goes east from the Liberty State Pavilion Towers.
  5. It's in southwest South Bohan leaned against the northern big rusty girder
of two at the top of a building in the early stages of construction south of
the two tall cranes west of the north end of the East Borough Bridge.

five story apartment building at the south corner of Coxsack Ave. and the name-
less street that goes east-west between it and Alcatraz Ave.
  7. It's leaned against the inside of the northeast corner of the chain link
fence of the baseball diamond south of the west end of Greene Ave. and west of
the section of Grand Blvd. that's just south of where Greene Ave. passes over
it.
  8. It's between tracks about halfway across the subway train track (off the
map in the direction the arrow is pointing).

section of the little go kart track on the west side of the dead end street
that's south of the south side of Crockett Ave. west of Wappinger Ave.
  2. It's on the wooden sidewalk above the highway of the Broker Bridge.  (The
Pistol is further west than the west corner of the Platypus.)  The entrance to
the stairway to the sidewalk is on the west side of Mohawk Ave. below the Brok-
er Bridge.
  3. It's on the metal walk over the crest of the roof of the Perestroika club.
One way to have Niko get there is to send him to the alley on the west side of
Munsee Ave. north of Tulsa St., west to the end of the alley, south to the top
of the stairs, then east up the stairs to the Pistol.
  4. It's on the northeast side of the lower ledge on the circumference of a
large light grey-green round tank that's on the rectangular and most westerly
projection of land on the west coast of Broker.
  Have Niko go through the working chain link gate on the west side of the un-
named street closest to the southeast section of that projection, go west to
the weathered red stairs, go to the top of the stairs, and go clockwise over
the ledges of the building and the big round tank to the Pistol.
  5. It's between a pair of blue dumpsters in a nook at the northeast corner of
a museum.
  Have Niko go to the west side of Mohawk Ave. below and south of the Algon-
quin-Dukes Expressway, go through the working chain link gates, and go north-
east through the back lot to the Pistol.
  6. It's at the northeast end of the 90 degree angle alley with an entrance on
the east side of Freetown Ave. which is about a couple blocks southeast of the
Monoglobe.
  7. It's by a splotch of blood on the sixth floor of an apartment building
Niko can enter through a brown door (just north of the red and white DELI &
GROCERY awning) on the west side of Joliet Ave. south of Hollowback St.  The
back door is in the middle of the east side of the grey area west of that on
the radar and in-game map.
  8. It's on the counter in the make up room which is on the far left from
where Niko enters the main room of the Triangle Club.  He'll anger the security
guards by going into the make up room.  The entrance to the Triangle Club is
indicated on the maps/radar by the little north-south dead end road on the
north side of the southern section of Coxsack Ave.

  Combat Pistol

  1. It's at the south end of a north-south catwalk between two pairs of four
big storage tanks in the northern area of the Tudor St. loop.  There's a ladder
at the north end of the catwalk.  Eight bigger tanks are represented on the
maps/radar by round grey spots--the smaller tanks are north of the three big
eastern tanks.
  2. It's on the eastern ledge at the top of the third, viewed south to north,
of the five biggest water tanks, represented by big round grey spots on the
maps/radar, on Charge island.  There's a ladder on the northeast side of the

nearby north-south road.
  3. It's on the lane opposite that of a stunt jump ramp on the most western
segment of the six unfinished segments of the Northern Expressway.  The seg-
ments are southwest of the southern end of the expressway.

  Pump shotgun

  1. It's leaned against the northeast side of a support pillar for an elevated
section of the subway.  On the radar and in-game map the subway track has a
darker grey line than the highway.  The support pillar is about half a block
west from the south end of the long line that goes southwest from the northwest
area of the northern runway.
  2. It's leaned against a post on the north end of the north-south section of
the dilapidated wooden pier that's west of the inverted "V"-shaped, and north-
most, section of the north coast of Dukes.
  3. It's on the grass by a shrub at the base of a two story building-high rock
cliff.
  Have Niko go to the north end of Leavenworth Ave., continue north past the
western north-south ped crossing line, continue northwest to the nearest tree,
and continue just past it to the low base of the cliff.  Have him go west along
that cliff to a tree--about 15' (?) west of that tree is the shotgun.

  Combat shotgun

  of the back of the terminal across the street from the west end.  Having
Niko walk or drive a wheeled vehicle on the tarmac will cause a four star
wanted rating but it won't be caused by having him land a helicopter on it.
  2. It's leaned against a wall in the little PRIVATE STAFF ONLY! room which is
on Niko's left just after he enters the main room of the Triangle Club.  The
entrance to the Triangle Club is indicated on the maps/radar by the little
north-south dead end road on the north side of the southern section of Coxsack
Ave.

  Micro SMG

  1. Seeing most of the alley as a crooked sideways "H," it's in the crossbar
of the "H" east of the south end of Wenrohronon Ave.
  2. It's on a nearly floor level window ledge by three bound cardboard boxes
on palettes in the southern area of the west side of the fourth and top floor
of a building under construction.
  Have Niko enter the second floor at Morris St. across from the west side of
the south end of Trenton Ave.  The stairs are in the northwest corner of the
building.
  3. It's in the eastern part of the wooden plank section of the second most
northern dock on the west side of Charge Island.

  SMG

  1. It's on a grey air conditioning duct along a ledge with a skylight in an
alley.
  Have Niko go to the south side of Dillon St. halfway between Seneca Ave. and
Cayuga Ave., go south in the alley (the entrance isn't on the map/radar) to a
blue dumpster, and go left to climb onto the ledge.
  2. It's in the southwest corner of the top level of the parking garage that's
west of the south end of the airport terminal.  The garage can be entered on
the east end of the south side or the north end of the east side (or you could
have Niko fly to the roof).
  3. It's on the southeast corner of the roof of the Sprunk storage building.
  Have Niko go to the west end of the east-west alley between Attica Ave. and
Guantanamo Ave. west of the west end of Spin St., go up the stairs to the roof
of the Auto Parts building, go east to the three planks that create a walk be-
tween roofs, go north on them to the roof of the Bohan Wholesale produce build-
ing, continue north to the roof of the Sprunk storage building, and go east to
the SMG.

  Assault rifle

  1. It's on the eastern section of the roof of a big building with doors
marked "STUDIO" and portable lights in the back lot (movie studio?) in western
East Island City, Dukes.
  Have Niko go to the southern sidewalk by the most eastern overhead traffic
signs of the eastern section of the southern stretch of the East Borough
Bridge, jump onto the roof, and go east to the rifle.
  2. It's on a high platform of a tall factory building in the middle of the
long "handle" of the submachine gun-looking grey shape representing a big fac-
tory complex on the radar and in-game map south of the pentagram-shaped set of
roads in southeast Industrial, Bohan.
  Have Niko go up the stairs on the east side, or up the stairs and ladder on
the south end, of the building represented by the "handle" and go up the ladder
at the northwest corner of the taller structure to the platform.

  Carbine rifle

  1. It's in a small northern room on the first floor of the large factory com-
plex, represented on the radar and in-game map by a submachine gun-shaped area,
south of the pentagon-shaped set of roads in southeast Industrial, Bohan.
  Have Niko go through the factory entrance at the north end of the east side
of the long "handle" of the submarine gun shape and go through the middle en-
trance on the north side of the room.

  Sniper rifle (after "Luck of the Irish")

  1. It's in southern East Hook, Broker, on a little platform high on the tall
crane south of the west end of the dead end road by the north end of the Platy-
pus--the big ship Niko arrived on and which is docked north of the east end of
the Broker Bridge.
  Have Niko climb the two ladders of the crane.
  2. It's near the top of the middle of three big structures on the north coast
of Steinway, Dukes.  Seen west to east on the radar and in-game map, they're on
the first three projections on the north coast and the middle structure is on
the smaller rectangular projection between two longer projections.
  The area is part of Gantry Park.  The big structure has a twin to the east
and they're like the restored "contained apron" transfer bridges, of the James
B. French patent, built in 1925, to load and unload rail car floats in what is
now Gantry Plaza State Park.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Gantry_Park
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gantry_Plaza_State_Park
  Have Niko get down to the area via the steps north of Dukes Dr. east of the
eastern projection of the three.  Have him go through the entrance of the mid-
dle building, up the steps, up a ladder, to the south side of the building, up
a ladder, up the steps, and up a ladder to the small landing with the rifle.

  Molotovs

  1. It's south of the eastern section of Crockett Ave. by a bench on the east
side of the covered open-sided structure represented by a rectangle southeast
of the rectangle that represents Memory Lanes on the radar and in-game map.
  2. It's in a little recessed area of the side of an apartment building east
of the middle of Cokanuk Ave.
  3. It's in the northern section of the pedestrian tunnel behind/west of the
Twitchin's Sugar building which is on the projection of land northwest of the
curve where Mohanet Ave. becomes Creek St.
  One way to have Niko get to the Molotovs is to have him go from that curve
through the red brick arch entrance to the lot south of Twitchin's, go west to
the northwest corner of the trailer for a big truck, jump north down to a side-
walk, and go north to the Molotovs.  You can have Niko return either by having
him swim to the little dock to the north then east to the street or by going
south to the end of the walk then east to the street.
  4. It's on a grey-green girder above the south end of the northern and north-
south stretch of the East Borough Bridge.
  Have Niko go to the top of the sloped southeast girder, jump onto the top
corner part, continue north to the next to the last horizontal girder to his
left, and go over that girder to the Molotov.
  5.  It's below the wooden ramp of a little dock indicated on the radar and
maps near the south end of the north-south part of the 90 degree angle section
of the coast east of the south end of Sing Sing Ave., which is by the north end
of the Dukes Bay Bridge.

  Grenades

  1. It's by a crane at he west end of the 90 degree angled pier west of the
southern section of the south runway of the airport.
  2. It's on the base of the sculpture of the Earth--The Monoglobe--which is
encircled by round roads at the south end of Meadows Park.

northern west-east alley of two indicated on the maps and radar between Trenton
Ave. and Tinconderoga Ave.
  4. It's by a grey-green utility box on the west side of the southern higher
north-south section of the big metal catwalk of the Charge Island Water Treat-
ment Facility.
  Referring to the radar and in game map, have Niko go to the catwalk area en-
trance road which makes a T-intersection with the north-south stretch of road
east of the main north-south stretch of highway on Charge Island, go east into
the area, south to the corner of the fence, southwest to the base of the sloped
metal catwalk ramp, south then east up the ramp, continue to the T-intersection
of ramps, then go north to the pickup.
  5. It's on the south side of the alley between the east side of Rykers Ave.
across from the east end of Applejack St. and the west side of Attica Ave.


  IV.8  Flying Rats part one

  "Flying rat" is NYC slang for "pigeon."
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aL6mTMShVyk

  Like Diaz's concern at the start of "The Fastest Boat" in Vice City," Niko's
mission here is to kill pigeons.

  Shooting all 200 Flying Rats contributes 2.5% toward 100% completion of the
game, the Annihilator appears on the MeTV Building in Star Junction, and you
get the "Endangered Species" Achievement.

  Niko can kill a pigeon with any weapon but his fist or a melee weapon.

  Thanks to Robert Rusk for various strategies and finding that Niko can use a
limited wanted rating exploit to make him less likely to attract police atten-
tion, such as for killing Flying Rats.  At the end of "Ivan the Not So Terri-
ble" (V.13), Niko can leave Ivan hanging, kill Flying Rats, etc., and go back
to Ivan afterward.  He can still get a six star wanted rating for leaving the
legal boundary before Algonquin is open or get a four star wanted rating for
going onto the airport tarmac.

  On the PC, you could also use the Simple Trainer by sjaak327 to make blips
for Flying Rats appear on the in-game map and radar, spawn whatever vehicle or
weapon, and disable the wanted rating system.  You can even have Niko teleport
to the Flying Rats.  If so, be careful to note which ones recommend the use of
Airbreak (flying car) before clicking to teleport or Niko will spawn in midair
and fall--give him God Mode in case you hastily teleport him to those without a
vehicle.

  Thanks to TheGoldenState (Gianni Van Heusden) for giving me permission to ad-
just the colors of his map so it's easier to read on a black and white print
out.  I labelled things with numbers that correspond to numbers in my descrip-
tions to make it a bit more ergonomic.


  http://glenster1.webs.com/Pigeon_map_locations_gamesradar_Negative_BrokerDukesBohan_Resized3.jpg

  I recommend printing the map shown above and my descriptions given below.


  1. It's on a post of an old broken pier west of the intersection of Delaware
Ave./Bart St.
  2. It's on the western post of the "Welcome To FANTASTIC FIREFLY ISLAND" sign
southwest of the south end of Iroquois Ave. where it meets what is either the
west end of Crockett Ave. or the south bend of Delaware Ave. (?).
  3. It's at the south end of Firefly Island on the beach near the shore under
the cross shaped pier.
  4. It's in Funland on a low support beam of the Liberty Eye Ferris wheel
south of the middle of Crockett Ave.
  Thanks to Robert Rusk for the next method:
  Under the Ferris wheel shooting spot: have Niko go to the intersection of
Crockett Ave./Wappinger Ave., go east on Crockett Ave., go south on the first
path at his right, go right into the entrance to Funland, veer right to the
Ferris wheel, pass the gray car that's about 10' off the ground, and continue
to the red car that's about 3 1/2' off the ground.  Have him turn and look up
to see the pigeon on a nearby support beam.
  Rooftop shooting spot: have Niko go through the entrance of Funland as ex-
plained above, veer left to climb onto the Craig's Candys stand, then jump
north to climb onto the Liberty Eye building to kill the pigeon.
  El-train track shooting spot: have Niko go to the northeast corner of the T-
intersection of Crockett Ave./Wappinger Ave., go to the top boarding area of
the Hove Beach train station, and go east over the south side of the track to
the east side of the diamond shape above Crockett Ave. on the in-game map and
radar.  From there the pigeon can be seen as being behind, below, and to the
left of the "L" of the closer "LIBERTY EYE" letters and sniped or killed with a
Rocket Launcher.
  See the weapons section for methods to get these weapons before Algonquin is
legally available (after "Blow Your Cover").
  This can be combined with using an El-train track shooting spot for pigeon 5.
  5. It's on a railing at a peak of the SCREAMER roller coaster track south of
the eastern part of Crockett Ave.
  Sidewalk shooting spot: from beside the west side of the street light pole at
the southwest part of the T-intersection of Crockett Ave./Onondaga Ave. the pi-
geon can be seen on a guard rail of the roller coaster track that's over the
west section of the "A" of "SCREAMER."  A Pistol is a good enough weapon for
the job.
  El-train track shooting spot: have Niko go to the northeast corner of the T-
intersection of Crockett Ave./Wappinger Ave., go to the top boarding area of
the Hove Beach train station, go east over the south side of the track till
across from the "A" of "SCREAMER," and shoot the pigeon.  It takes longer to
get to this vantage point but since it's closer to the pigeon you can even have
Niko use a Molotov to hit one of the support beams below the pigeon to kill it.
  This can be combined with using an El-train track shooting spot for pigeon 4.
  6. It's on a doorway on the eastern side of the north-south alley north of
Garrett St.
  Have Niko go north into the alley at the north side of Garrett St.  The pi-
geon is on a doorway in the second recessed section of the building on the
right.
  7. It's in southern Firefly Projects south of the east section of Cody St. on
a corner of the grey railing of a chain link fence that's along a walkway at
the northeast side of a big apartment building.
  8. It's in Beachgate on the back porch of the southern house of Ketchum St.
  9. It's on the southeast end of a 1' or so tall concrete highway divider of
the upper part of the Broker-Dukes Expressway at the northeast end of the big
curved and raised onramp that's at the southeast part of the expressway.
  10. It's by the broken part of a seven or so foot tall concrete-topped red
brick wall that's southeast of the south end of Saponi Ave. along the southern
east-west sidewalk of Ringo St.
  11. The pigeon is on the marguee, a bit northwest of center, for Perestroika
on Tulsa St.
  Molotov method: have Niko use a Molotov to hit the underside of the marquee a
bit northwest of center from a spot safely to the side of the marquee. 
  Stair climbing methods: have Niko enter Perestroika on Tulsa St., go through
the back door to his far left, go upstairs and through the door to go outside,
go south to the outdoor stairs and climb to the top, go across the roof and
climb the steps, go west across the small roof and  jump over the railing, and
go south to jump down toward the middle of the back of the Perestroika sign
onto the top of the marguee.
  OR
  Have Niko enter the alley on the east side of the block and go to the west
end of the alley, go south to the top of the stairs, go east up one set of
stairs, go south to the flat rooftop, go east down the stairs to a flat roof
top, and jump south toward the middle of the back of the Perestroika sign and
onto the marquee.
  12. It's by the T-intersection of Delaware Ave. and the west end of Cisco St.
on the western structure of two holding up the "Broker Navy Yard" sign at the
south entrance to the yard.
  Dumpster method: have Niko shoot it from atop the blue dumpster to the south
of the sign.
  (Thanks to the Robert Rusk walk-through for the next two methods.)
  Molotov method: have Niko use a Molotov to hit the western structure just un-
der the pigeon.
  Platforming method: have Niko climb onto the bus stop shelter on the north
side of Cisco St., jump onto the nearby overhang of the gated pedestrian en-
trance, go west to climb onto the eastern support structure for the sign, and
kill the pigeon with whatever weapon that works.
  13. It's on the second air conditioner, left to right, of the Woodfellas
building as seen from a spot a bit east of the west end of Cisco St.--from
there, the building is to the north.
  Any weapon method: have Niko go down into the Woodfellas yard and use any
weapon that works to kill the pigeon--for example, you could have Niko throw a
Molotov at the area just below the pigeon.
  Thanks to Robert Rusk reader Jonathan Rohr for the next method:
  Any weapon/platforming method: have Niko go east from the west end of Cisco
St. past the bus stop shelter till just past the pay phones, jump north over
the sidewalk wall onto the pipes which are over a street, walk over the pipes
north, west, then north to the pigeon, and kill it with whatever weapon that
works.
  Long range weapon method: have Niko use a Carbine Rifle or one of the sniper
rifles to shoot the pigeon from Cisco St. east of the "Broker Navy Yard" sign.
(You may have Niko shoot from atop the nearby overhang of the gated pedestrian
entrance of the Broker Navy Yard--see 11.)
  See the weapon section above for methods to get these weapons before Algon-
quin is legally available (after "Blow Your Cover").
  14. It's on a railing of the gazebo in Outlook Park.
  15. It's a bit west of center on the concrete and fenced-in roof of a red
brick one story storage building (beside a red brick garage with a green door--
both with a small lot in front of them) at the west side of the north-south al-
ley between Mohegan Ave. and Hitchcock St.
  Platforming method: have Niko go north from the south end of the alley, go
west to climb the steps, jump over the low wall onto a dumpster, jump west to
grab onto the roof, move right a couple times while hanging then climb onto the
flat roof, and go west and walk onto the peaked roof.  The pigeon is on the
flat roof to the north.
  Thanks to the walk-through by Robert Rusk for this strategy:
  Molotov method: have Niko go to the small lot at the west side of the alley
and throw a Molotov at the middle of the front of the concrete roof of the
storage building.
  16. It's on the north side of Sundance St. on one of the walls supporting a
small set of steps at the southwest corner of the Jerk n' Gizzada restaurant
which is at the intersection of Conoy Ave./Sundance St.
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gizzada
  17. It's on the north end of the roof of a bus stop shelter that's on the
west side of Montauk Ave. north of Earp St.
  18. It's at the east end of a dead end alley on a railing of the lowest level
of the fire escape.
  Have Niko go north from the Mohanet Ave./Chicory St. T-intersection and enter
the alley on the east side of Mohanet Ave.
  19. It's on a girder on the underside of the southern east-west lane of the
Algonquin-Dukes Expressway north of the southeast onramp which connects Montauk
Ave. and the expressway.
  20. It's found, going west to east from the intersection of Cassidy St./Sene-
ca Ave., on the top of one of the railings of the steps for the third door of
the row houses on the south side of Cassidy St.
  21. It's found north of the T-intersection of Wenrohronon Ave./Cassidy St. on
the east side of Wenrohronon Ave. on the railing of the lowest level of a fire
escape.
  22. It's on a slab of concrete in a little blocked off road construction area
south of the 90 degree bend of Pancho St.
  23. It's on a short post across the lane from the toll booth which is east of
the airport parking garage.
  24. It's a bit in from the bottom edge of the round hole in the southern of
two support pillars at the front of the Francis International Airport terminal.
  Molotov method: have Niko go to the nearest lane in the street and throw a
Molotov at the southern support column just under the bottom edge of the hole.
This is the fastest easiest method in terms of getting the weapon at the start
of the game and getting to the attack location.  (If you have Niko use a Gren-
ade have him "cook" it, indicated by beeping, or it may go through the hole and
not kill the pigeon.)  This takes advantage of the old GTA gimmick of using the
ability of Molotov flames to go through solids.
  OR
  Sniper rifle/Rocket Launcher method: have Niko go west of the terminal to the
Francis Intnl Airport train station, go to the top of the station, go south
over the eastern edge of the tracks until across from the hole with the pigeon,
then use a sniper rifle or Rocket Launcher to shoot the pigeon.  (A fast way
down is east over the railing onto a roof then down to ground level.)  Thanks
to Robert Rusk's walk-through for the tip that pigeon 23 can be shot from the
tracks, too.
  See the listings for Sniper Rifle and Rocket Launcher above in the Weapons
section for methods to get these weapons at the start of the game.
  25. It's on the top of the railing in the middle of the west side of the top
level of the airport control tower.  The control tower is at the corner of the
two landing strips.
  Helicopter method: have Niko land on the tower with a helicopter and kill the
pigeon.  Niko doesn't get a four star wanted level for landing on the control
tower (or the tarmac).
  See the listing for Maverick above in I.8.c Helicopters and jets for how to
get it and save it at the start of the game.  If you wait till Algonquin is le-
gally available (after "Blow Your Cover"), you can use the helicopter method
without any wanted level.
  On PC you could also use the Simple Trainer to spawn a vehicle or weapon,
disable the wanted system, and create blips for the pigeons on the in-game map
and radar.

  http://www.gtagarage.com/mods/show.php?id=5646
  Sniper rifle method: thanks to the Robert Rusk walk-through for this method.
Have Niko go north toward the airport on the Broker-Dukes Expressway, turn
right to take the Francis International Airport exit, and, just past the FIA
Warehouse on his right, turn right to go through the security entrance.  Have
Niko follow this road till he's behind the middle of the back of the terminal
and park just outside the gate on his right.  The control tower is practically
due east.  Have Niko run onto the tarmac--giving him a four star wanted level--
toward the control tower till he's near the tail of the jet on his left, snipe
the pigeon, then run back to his car to get rid of his wanted level such as by
saving the game at the Hove Beach save place.
  Rocket Launcher method: since the pigeon has to spawn to kill it, and it
doesn't spawn at the spot described above without using the zoom of the sniper
rifle, you have to get Niko closer to the pigeon to kill it by hitting the con-
trol tower just under the pigeon with a Rocket Launcher.  To do that, have Niko
run toward the control tower till he's to the right of the tail of the second
jet on his left, etc.
  See the listings for Sniper Rifle and Rocket Launcher above in the Weapons
section for methods to get these weapons at the start of the game.
  26. It's between two air conditioning units on a low level of the roof of the
flyUS building.
  Have Niko go up to the boarding area of the Francis Intnl. Airport train sta-
tion (as for the Sniper rifle/Rocket Launcher method for 24) then go north
along the tracks.  You can either have him jump onto the roof of the flyUS
building and go south to shoot the pigeon or shoot it from the tracks.  From by
the tracks the two air conditioner units can be seen on the lower roof between
two higher domed roofs that have "flyUS" signs on them.
  27. It's on a support beam under the train track north of Willis Wash & Lube
which is at the corner of Saratoga Ave. and Lynch St.
  28. The pigeon is in a doorway of a small rooftop structure by the eastern
water tower in the eastern area of the roof of the four story apartment build-
ing that's across the street to the north of the Lynch Street train station
(which is on a block named "STATION SQUARE" on the paper map).
  The Lynch Street train station boarding area can be accessed via steps or
ramps.  Have Niko, across the street from the apartment building, go up the
western ramp to the boarding area, go east to the second gray bench on his
left, and jump onto the bench/the low wall behind it.  Have him climb the cano-
py, go west to the roof with a sharper angled peak,* add Jump to Run as needed
to have him go north over that roof, and have him continue north over the mid-
dle of the next roof and the middle of the roof of the enclosed bridge over the
street.  Add Jump to Run to have him climb the steep section of roof to the
level rooftop of the apartment building.
  *It's a little tricky but you can have Niko kill the pigeon by using a Rocket
Launcher to shoot the grey rooftop enclosure of the doorway the pigeon is in
from this train station rooftop peak.
  29. It's on the roof of the stairs that connect ground level with the board-
ing area for the east-west tracks of the Huntington St. Station at the inter-
section of Huntington St. and Charleston Ave.  The pigeon is on a section of
roof that's by the north side of that boarding area where there are a trio of
ticket machines.
  You could have Niko go east over a safe section of the tracks to pigeon 28.
  See the listing for 30 for Robert Rusk's tip for how to continue from pigeon
29 to the top boarding area etc. to kill pigeon 30.
  30. It's on the chimney at the front of a duplex on the west side of Savannah
Ave.  There are two flower pots of red and yellow flowers at the foot of the
steps in front of it.
  You can either have Niko get to the roof by going through the southern front
door with a green awning and climbing the stairs or by using the steps behind
the building.
  Thanks to Robert Rusk's walk-through for the tip that you could also have
Niko shoot pigeon 30 from the train tracks after killing 29 at Huntington St.
train station.  By that method, have Niko continue to the top boarding platform
of the station, go north on the west side of the tracks to where the tracks are
over Savannah Ave., and shoot west to kill pigeon 30.
  31. It's on the backboard of a basketball hoop.
  Have Niko go to Dukes Blvd. between Huntington St. and Livingston St. and go
east into the alley.  The pigeon is on the backboard of the nearest basketball
hoop of the little basketball court on his right.
  32. It's at the nearly 90 degree curve on the north part of Chicory St. on
the support column that's part of a stone wall across the street to the south
of the diner.
  33. It's at the curve of the pedestrian tunnel northeast of the middle of the
curve of the south section of Franklin St./west section of Hooper St.  The
north entrance of the tunnel is beneath the bridge onramp and the southern en-
trance is below the outside of the curve where Franklin St. becomes Hooper St.
  34. It's on a railing at the top of the diving platform north-northeast of
33.  Between the parallel north-south sections of Franklin St. and Concord Ave.
is a little skateboard ramps area and south of it is a swimming pool, and both
are in an area represented by an oblong shape on the radar and game maps.  The
diving platform is at the south end of the swimming pool.
  35. It's on the wooden fence that's just inside a stone wall of a little back
yard in an alley west of the southern half of Yorktown Ave. and south of Stein-
way Beer Garden.
  36. It's across the street to the north of the east side of Steinway Beer Gar-
den in the tree that's nearest the northwest corner of the Morris St./Yorktown
Ave. intersection.
  37. It's on a rafter of the underside of the northwest awning of the boarding
area of the train station that's at the east end of Morris St.  The rafter is
by the second vertical support post viewed west to east.
  38. It's on the floor, a bit southwest of center, of a room at the northwest
corner of Hancock St./San Jacinto Ave. at the National Union of Contemporary
Arts building.  The building has banners with "NUCA" in blue letters hanging in
front of it.  The room is the only room with open windows.  It shares the top
floor with some dormers that are on the east side of the building.
  Molotov method: have Niko throw a Molotov at the side of the building just
below the middle open window of a set of three.  As with 24, this is the fast-
est and easiest method--in this case, it's the easiest in giving you the com-
bination of a bigger area to aim for, one of the weapons that's easy to get at
the start of the game, and you don't need a helicopter to get to the attack lo-
cation.  Again, this takes advantage of the old GTA gimmick of using the abili-
ty of Molotov flames to go through solids.
  Other methods: you can have Niko shoot at the same areas with a Rocket
Launcher, throw a "cooked" Grenade through a window, or use a helicopter to get
on the nearby roof then use any weapon that works.
  See the listing for Rocket Launcher above in the Weapons section for a method
to get it at the start of the game.
  See I.8.c for how to get a helicopter at the start of the game.
  39. It's north of the Monoglobe which is at the center of a couple of concen-
tric circular walks in the southern area of Meadows Park.  It's between the two
fountain pools on the title plaque at the base of the statue titled "GOOSED."
  40. It's on top of the ornamental stone structure atop a doorway north of the
Carrollton St./Cleves Ave. intersection on the east side of Cleves Ave.
There's a green canopy over the steps to the door.
  41. It's in the eastern area of Meadows Park and northwest of the T-intersec-
tion of Tudor St./Tudor St. (part of Tudor St. forms a loop) on the western
ledge of a mainly stone rectangular thing.  I guess it's some kind of utility
unit.  It has pipes and has a sign on the door calling it an electrical area
that must be kept clear by order of the Fire Commissioner.
  42. It's in northern Meadows Park just inside the southwest door of the pa-
vilion part of Liberty State Pavilion Towers.  The pavilion part is a round
structure which looks like it's meant to support a circus tent, and it's repre-
sented by the larger of the two round spots which are close together on the pa-
per map, in-game map, and radar.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Liberty_State_Pavilion_Towers
  43. It's on the mound of dirt on which a Unique Stunt Jump plank rests east
of the northeast end of Franklin St.
  44. It's on the big rock nearest to the T-intersection of Franklin St./Ticon-
deroga Ave. of those rocks just north of it and the biggest of those rocks.
  45. It's on the southern end of the roof of the house-shaped mausoleum at the
"instep" of the boot-shaped walkway of the cemetery northwest of the Franklin
St./Dukes Dr. intersection.
  46. It's on the overhead bars of the children's play station just north of
Dukes Dr. (northwest of the "D" in "Dukes" on the paper map and roughly south
of the longest projection from the north coast of Steinway.
  47 and 48.  One is on an 8' (?) stone wall and the other is at the base of a
nearby tree north of the eastern section of Dukes Dr.  They're at the west side
of the entrance to a parking lot represented by a mostly rectangular shape
north of Dukes Dr. on the  paper map, in-game map, and radar.
  49. It's on the sixth from the south partly submerged Dukes Bay Bridge sup-
port base.  (It's the eighth if you count the two resting on land above water.)
  Niko can access it from a boat.  There are boats at the piers at the south
end of the Dukes Bay Bridge.  While Niko has a boat you could also have him
kill pigeon 50.
  Thanks for Robert Rusk for the tip that you can have Nike climb onto the sup-
port base north of the one with the pigeon and shoot it from there.
  50. It's on the top of the smallest and most western rock of those partly
above the water in an area indicated on the paper map by a small projection at
the coast west of the southern section of San Quentin Ave.
  Boat method: have Niko get a boat from the piers by the south end of the
Dukes Bay Bridge and shoot the pigeon from the boat.  While Niko has a boat you
could also have him kill pigeon 49.
  Rifle/SMG method: have Niko go west from San Quentin Ave./Switch St. to the
most western corner of the third apartment building from the south (indicated
by a rectangle on the map), take the nearby grassy path down to a little dock,
go south to an identical little dock, and shoot from the northwest corner of
the middle landing of the dock.
  Helicopter method: you can have Niko land the Maverick on the big rock by the
one the pigeon is on.
  See the section on helicopters above for zmoonchild's methods for getting a
Maverick at the start of the game.
  51. It's on the outer wall of the southern sidewalk of the east-west part
(the southern part) of the East Borough Bridge by the western of the two big
vertical suspender cable towers.
  52. It's on the south end of a grassy divider strip in a small parking lot of
the Charge Island Water Treatment Facility.  On the map there are five large
round spots, which represent huge water tanks, along the east side of of the
southern part of the main north-south bridge lanes on Charge Island.  The park-
ing lot is at ground level between the second and third spots/huge tanks going
south to north.
  You could have Niko drive down to the pigeon or have him jump down to the top
of the second big tank from the south, shoot the pigeon from there, climb down
the ladder, and climb over the railing at the north side of the fenced-in area.
  Sniper rifle method: you could have Niko snipe it from the western end of the
southern part of the bridge.
  See the section on weapons above for zmoonchild's method for getting a sniper
rifle at the start of the game.
  53. It's by the northwestern dock of Charge Island on the bow of a small
wooden sail boat with blue trim.
  54. It's west of the north end of the East Borough Bridge on the bottom of
the inside of a large horizontal section of concrete pipe.  You can have Niko
shoot it from the top of the northern onramp of the bridge.
  55. It's on the wall along a short walkway beneath a curve in what appears to
be the southern dead end section of Attica Ave.
  There are stairs to the area at the southwest corner of Attica Ave./Rocket
St. and south of that intersection by the east side of the street.
  56. It's at the south side of Spin St. on the short railing by a door that's
by a lot with two semi-trailers.
  57 and 58. They're on the edge of the roof of the abandoned CLEANERS shop on
the southwest corner of the T-intersection Switch St. and Joliet Ave.  One is
on the southeast corner of the roof and the other is 1 1/2' or so north of it.
  59 and 60. They're south of Switch St. on the west side of Wallkill Ave.  One
is on a little broken concrete block wall by the sidewalk and another is nearby
on the south end of a horizontal girder that has one end embedded in the top of
the wall.  Thanks to Robert Rusk for the tip to have Niko shoot from the aban-
doned lot to the west of the pigeons to avoid a wanted rating.
  61. It's by a small hole in the ground in a little construction site partly
enclosed by wooden planks and surrounded by little orange striped traffic di-
viders.
  Have Niko go a bit east from the southern corner of San Quentin Ave. and Drop
St. to the site.
  62. It's in an alley on the southeast fence post.
  Have Niko enter the alley through a hole in the fence on the north side of
Drop St. and go north then west.
  63. It's on the top of a cliff.
  Have Niko go northeast from the intersection of Grand Blvd. and Elbow St. to
the northern apex of the bend in the road.  The pigeon is just north of the
stone wall that's beside the northern sidewalk.
  64. It's on the eastern stone gate post of the gate for a door with a red
awning marked "1665."
  Have Niko go east from the southeast corner of the Grand Blvd./Elbow St. in-
tersection onto the southern walkway that's higher than Grand Blvd. to the
first entrance of the apartment building.
  65. It's on one of the brick and stone structures used as accents as part of
a wall along a walkway.
  Have Niko go northeast from the most eastern curve of Valdez St. to the walk-
way.  The pigeon is on the fourth accent structure of the wall on his right.
  66. It's on the east corner of the second level of the roof of the Menala
Metal building which is parallel to Jackhammer St.
  Have Niko go southwest from the east side of the north end of Jackhammer St.
to the southwestern side of the Menala Metal building and climb the stairs,
ladder, stairs, and a ladder.
  67. It's in the window of the cabin of an abandoned tugboat.  Facing the
front of the tugboat, it's in the third window right to left.
  Have Niko go to the southwest side of Lompoc Ave. at the Worm St. intersec-
tion, go a bit southeast to the walkway, and go southwest on it till he's above
and across from the front of the tugboat.
  68. It's on the north street light of a series attached to a wall on the east
side of the road at the first bend in the road (Leavenworth Ave.?) southeast of
the east end of Drill St.
  Another way to find it: a section of the unfinished southern part of the
Northern Expressway just south of Lompoc Ave. is set off by two sets of road-
blocks.  That section of the expressway and the road below it form a pentagram
on the radar and maps.  The lamp post is on the east side of the north end of
the eastern stretch--the directly north-south stretch--of the lower road.
  Thanks to Robert Rusk for the tip that you can have Niko snipe it from the
abandoned plant to the south to avoid a wanted rating.
  69. It's on a partly submerged rock at the rocky shore east of the east end
of Downrock Loop in Little Bay.
  Niko can shoot it from the east side of the Northern Expressway.
  Or
  Have Niko go east from eastern Planche St. to take the road (name?) down to
the rectangular parking area (indicated on the paper and in-game maps) at the
shore.  Have him go southeast over the grass along the coast to the area east
of the east end of Downrock Loop.  You can have Niko shoot the pigeon from the
grass to avoid the difficulty of getting him back up from the rocky coast.  If
he falls to the rocky coast, you can have him swim south to a sandy coast where
you can have him jump up and climb onto the grass again.
  70. It's on a bend in the rusty orange drain pipe in the north-south alley
between Planche St. and Flanger St.
  71. It's on the "WELCOME TO NORTHERN GARDENS" sign in the middle of the cul
de sac at the north end of Caterpillar St.
  72. It's west of the intersection of Grand Blvd. and Leavenworth Ave. between
the street and the railroad tracks on the rectangular brick building with "TEM
SAR" and other graffiti on it.
  Have Niko shoot from farther west at a lower part of the stone wall.  If you
want to get him closer to the pigeon, have him get on the wall and walk east
over it.
  73. It's north of the northern section of Greene Ave. on the beach beneath
the southwest end of the eastern pier.
  You can have Niko shoot it from the pier to the west of it.
  74. It's north of the north end of Uprock St. on an unused concrete slab
south of the area between the two longest piers.


  IV.9  Stunt Jumps part one

  Have Niko do 50 Stunt Jumps for 100% completion of the game.

  Unlike earlier GTAs, your protagonist isn't paid for doing each jump.  You'll
get a message telling you if you did a Stunt Jump successfully or already did a
Stunt Jump and how many there are left to do.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Stunt_Jumps_in_GTA_IV
  http://www.grandtheftwiki.com/Stunt_Jumps_in_GTA_IV

  A fast vehicle is recommended.  There's an NRG 900 at the north end of the
airport runways.  Lean back a bit for landing.  The phone code for it is 625-
555-0100.

  The Blista Compact is pretty fast and agile and commonly available in the
eastern areas of the game.  The phone number for a Comet is 227-555-0175 and
it's available in the Brucie Kibbutz mission "No. 1."  The 1957 Chevrolet Bel
Air mod I've come up with a handling line for (see the modding section) should
be good for jumps although the NRG900 makes it easier to hit the ramps made of
narrow concrete bins filled with street rubble.

  Fastest cars in "GTA IV"
  http://www.gta4.net/vehicles/?Type=0&Unit=metric&Sort=Speed&Speed=on&Accel=
on&Drive=on&Braking=on

  Once Niko has his stunt vehicle you might go to the pause menu (Esc) > Graph-
ics > Vehicle Density and turn down the slider to spawn fewer vehicles.

  Doing all 50 Stunt Jumps contributes 2.5% toward 100% completion and gives
you the "Dare Devil" Achievement.

  On the PC, you could also use the Simple Trainer by sjaak327 to spawn what-
ever vehicle, disable the wanted rating system, use the seatbelt function, and
give Nike and his vehicle God Mode.  You can even have Niko teleport to the lo-
cations.

  I recommend printing my modified wikigta.org map shown above and my descrip-
tions given below.
  http://en.wikigta.org/wiki/Stunt_jumps_%28GTA_IV%29


  Bohan

  Have Niko go southwest from Lompoc St. and parallel to the northwest side of
Jackhammer St. to the ramp.
  Have Niko land on Beaumont Ave.

  The two ramps are on the bridge under construction beyond the south end of
the Northern Expressway.
  Have Niko jump from the first ramp to the second then land on the roof of the
building across the water from the second ramp.

  The ramp is at the edge of an unfinished bridge above Rocket St./Attica Ave.
  Have Niko land on the road beyond the ramp.

  Dukes

  The ramp is east of Franklin St./Brandon Ave.
  It's safer to have Niko use a car in case he hits one of the light poles.
Have him land on Dukes Boulevard or an open area of the lot just before it.

  The ramp is west of Concord Ave./Morris St.
  Have Niko jump past the swimming pool.

  The ramp is the dumpster bin at the south end of a section of Concord Ave.
under construction.
  Have Niko go north to the dumpster bin and jump over the little building.

  The ramp is at the west end of an alley north of Famous Cleaners which is at
Harrison St./Tinconderoga Ave.
  Have Niko land in the junkyard.

  The ramp is north of Dukes Boulevard/Hooper St. in East Island City.
  Have Niko go east and land on Dukes Blvd.  Be careful not to let him hit the
building on the far side of it too hard.

  Francis International Airport

  The ramp is a sign north of the northeast curve of the Tudor St. loop.
  Have Niko go east, curve left/north to the ramp, and land on or past the
Broker-Dukes Expressway.

  The ramp is the dumpster at the southeast curve of the Tudor St. loop.
  Have Niko go south and land on or past the onramp of the Broker-Dukes Ex-
pressway that's to the south.

  Broker

  The ramp is at the end of an abandoned railroad track west of the south curve
of Valley Forge Ave.
  Have Niko go west and land near or past the Sprunk sign.

  The two ramps are south of the south end of San Jacinto Ave.
  Have Niko go south into the alley to the first ramp, land near the second
ramp on a roof, then jump from it to land on or past the next roof.

  The ramp is north of the north end of Tutelo Ave.
  Have Niko go north and land past the Algonquin-Dukes Expressway.

  The ramp is made of the planks on a mound of dirt south of the south end of
Freetown Ave.
  Have Niko go south and land on the far side of the Algonquin-Dukes Express-
way.  There's a cliff face beyond that so it might be safer to have Niko use a
car.


  IV.10  QUB3D videogame

  QUB3D (as in "Cube 3D") is a Tetris-like game.  Cubes can each be one of six
different colors, and a sequence of pairs of cubes, by default side by side,
come down a square grid as far as they can go before being stopped by the bot-
tom or by cubes that are already stopped there.  The game is over when the col-
ored blocks accumulate to the top of the grid.
 
  You can control their paths with the purpose of eliminating groups of cubes.
Use S or Down arrow to increase the speed at which the blocks fall.  Use A or D
or Left arrow or Right arrow to position the cubes side by side or one above
the other, move the pair left or right on the grid, and determine which cube is
the left or right cube.

  If you position one above the other, you have a couple of options.  Leave
them alone and they will leapfrog to the bottom with each taking a turn to
pause above, over, and below the other.  You can speed this up by pressing S or
Down arrow.  If one is positioned over the other you can also move the one
that's above horizontally to be on one side or the other of the lower cube.

  Blocks are removed by forming a sequence of four or more identically colored
blocks with adjoining faces.  Removing four adds 150 points to your score,
grouping five adds 250, and grouping six adds 350.  The blocks above those re-
moved will fall into the empty spaces.  Each time the blocks are removed, the
score for each block is multiplied.

  You can also remove a block of a pair of blocks if they're beside each other
horizontally when at least one of the pair can fall no further: move the other
block horizontally to appear over the one that's stopped.

  If a group of four or more blocks form a square they become a larger block of
that color.  For each of these large blocks/squares that are removed, the power
bar will increase.  It takes the removal of four large blocks to completely
fill the power bar.  Once the power bar has been filled you can use the power-
ups by pressing 1, 2, 3, or 4.  A maximum of three power-up uses are available
by completely filling the power bar.

  Power ups  (Thanks to Robert Rusk for explaining what the power-ups do.)

  1 Red  Horizontal row removal--removes up to three rows

  2 Green  Vertical column removal--removes two columns

  3 Blue  Color removal--removes all blocks of a chosen color.  The game pauses
to show a grid of colors under the power-up section in the upper left of your
screen.  One color at a time becomes brighter for a couple of seconds.  To re-
move a color from the board activate the power-up again when the color you want
to remove is highlighted.

  4 Yellow  Slow down time

  IV.11  Bowling

  Niko can bowl for $10 by himself or with a friend.

  There are a couple of bowling alleys--both are called Memory Lanes.

  One is on the southeastern curve of the elevated boardwalk at Firefly Island
near Beach Gate in Broker.

  Later, when Algonquin is legally available, he can legally go to one at the
Golden Pier (the name of a mainly recreational but also retail complex on the
Westminster piers which, along with the waterfront marina in The Meat Quarter,
is collectively referred to as "Golden Pier") which is along a nameless road (a
sort of driveway) parallel to and west of Union Drive West northwest of the
west end of Iron St., Westminster.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Westminster
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Golden_Pier
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Memory_Lanes

  He can play a full game--ten frames--or a half game--five frames.

  Niko gets two chances to knock all ten pins down per frame.  If he knocks them
all down at once, it's a strike.  If he gets them all on the second try, it's a
spare.  If the ball goes down either side gutter, it's a gutter ball.

      "Bowling has a unique scoring system which keeps track not only of the
  current pinfall in a frame, but also strikes and spares which allow for
  the value of subsequent pinfall.  Effectively, there are three kinds of
  marks given in a score; a strike (all ten down in the first ball), a spare
  (all ten down by the second ball), and an open (one or more missed pins
  still standing after the second ball).  A strike earns ten points plus the
  points for the next two balls thrown.  (For example, if a player got a
  strike then followed with a 7 then 2, their value for the strike frame
  would be 10+7+2, or 19.)  A spare earns ten points plus the points for the
  next ball thrown.  (Again, if a player gets a spare then follows it with 7
  pins down on the first ball of the next frame, their value for the spare
  frame would be 10+7, or 17.)  Open frames count the value of the pinfall
  in that frame only.  (Example: if a player knocks down 5 on their first
  ball and 3 on their second, the open frame would be worth 8 points.)  The
  maximum score in tenpin bowling is 300.  This consists of getting 12
  strikes in a row in one game (one strike each in frames 1–9, and all three
  possible strikes in the tenth frame), and is also known as a perfect game."

  See "Scoring" at the next link for more.  In "GTA IV," scoring is done auto-
matically.
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ten-pin_bowling
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perfect_game_%28bowling%29

  I used the common advice to have Niko use the left lane, take a couple side
steps to the left, click the LMB to get him in position to roll, and slide the
mouse back then forward in one motion to roll the ball.  The faster you push
the mouse forward, the faster the ball rolls.  I tried to keep the speed of the
ball, measured in mph, in the upper teens to low 20's.

  For a spare on the left, I do the same and move the mouse to steer the roll-
ing ball as needed before it crosses the red center markings.  For a spare on
the right, I don't have Niko take two steps to the left and I use the mouse to
steer the rolling ball as needed.

  ELightshow of twentsackcom demonstrates the method at the next link.  He re-
commends that you don't have Niko throw the ball below 12 to 14 mph or over 20
mph.

  "GTA IV PC Bowling 300 Perfect Score" by zmoonchild
  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MN01OlUNO_Q

  The achievement Gobble Gobble is given if the player scores a "turkey" (three
strikes in a row).
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Bowling

  At the start of the game I scored 299 and saw "Kingpin" appear on the screen,
and another time I scored 300 and "Kingpin" didn't appear, and the stat page
for scores didn't indicate I won either time.  You're supposed to be able to
beat a computer opponent at the start of the game--dunno.  I just play single
player PC games and had my modification of Vlad_'s '57 Chevy mod installed,
etc.

  One of the peds may shout "Gimme a White Russian, please!" or "I'm The Dude!"
when they score.  This refers to The Dude/Jeff Lebowski (Jeff Bridges), a bowl-
ing fan whose favorite drink is a White Russian, in the 1998 Coen brothers mov-
ie "The Big Lebowski."
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Big_Lebowski

  It's possible to make a ped in another lane bowl a gutter-ball by standing on
the lane in front of their ball.  They'll react like it's their fault and won't
become hostile.


  IV.12  Darts

  Niko can play darts with someone that's by the dart board or with a friend.

  There are two places where you can have Niko play a game of darts:

  1. Steinway Beer Garden at Yorktown Ave. and Morris St. in Steinway, Dukes
It's the game version of the Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden in Astoria, Queens.
The Hall and Beer Garden is one of the community services provided by the Bohe-
mian Citizens' Benevolent Society which was founded to support Czech and Slovak
immigrants to the area as well as people of Czech and Slovak ancestry.
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bohemian_Citizens%27_Benevolent_Society
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Steinway_Beer_Garden

  2. Later, when Algonquin is legally available, you can have Niko legally play
darts at Lucky Winkles, Galveston Ave. and Hell Gate, Purgatory.

  You start with 301 points.  Two players take turns throwing up to three darts.
Where a dart lands on the dart board determines how many points are subtracted.
The goal is to reduce your score to zero before your opponent does.

  The round board is like a pizza divided into slices numbered 1 to 20--the
base points.

  Hitting the inner or outer large black or white section of a slice subtracts
the value of that slice.
  Hitting the outer red or green narrow band of a slice subtracts double the
value of that slice.
  Hitting the middle red or green narrow band of a slice subtracts triple the
value of that slice.
  Hitting the outer bull--the little red ring around the black innermost spot--
subtracts 25 points.
  Hitting the black innermost spot--the bull--subtracts 50 points).
  (The combined area of the outer bull and the bull is the bullseye.)

  If your score goes below zero--a negative number--it's a bust.  Your turn is
over and your score is reset to your previous score.

  The winning dart must be a double (the outer narrow band of a slice) or the
bull (the little round black spot in the middle) or it's a bust--your turn is
over and your score is reset to your previous score.  If you reduce your score
to one you can't end with a double so it's a bust.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Darts

  Press Q to briefly steady Niko's aim.

  Score a 180 with three darts for the "One Hundred And Eighty" Achievement.
Use three darts to hit the triple points band (the middle narrow red band) of
the "20" slice. (20 x 3 = 60, and 60 x 3 = 180.)

  "The highest score possible with 3 darts is 180, commonly known as a 'ton 80'
(100 points is called a ton), obtained when all three darts land in the triple
20."
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darts

  To win at darts I used the method described by zmoonchild:

  "GTA IV PC - How to score 180 in Darts, and win - at the very beginning of
the game" by zmoonchild
  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ejSAj3NXK1Q

  1. Put three darts in the middle narrow red band for the "20" slice (as de-
scribed above that's 180).

  2. Put another dart in the narrow middle red band for 20, put one dart in the
biggest white section for 1 (single point), and put one dart in the narrow out-
er red band for 20 (double points).

  3. Put one dart in the narrow outer red band for 10 (double points).

  The fletching of the darts symbolizes the dart players.  Examples include:

  Niko Bellic: the colors of the flag of Serbia.
  Roman Bellic: the woman in a bikini holding a martini featured in the game
art for "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" symbolizing his infatuation with women.
  Little Jacob: a marijuana leaf symbolizing his use of marijuana.
  Patrick McReary: a caricature of a drunk Irishman without pants (similar to
the logo for Lucky Winkles).
  Nameless opponent or female friend: the flag of Scotland which refers to
Rockstar North of Edinburgh, Scotland.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Darts

  You must have Niko beat Little Jacob and Packie at Darts for 100% completion
of the game.


  IV.13  Pool
 
  Niko can play pool with someone that's by the pool table or with a friend.

  There are two places where Niko can play pool:

  1. The Homebrew Cafe features pool at the corner of the south side of a name-
less street and the west side of the south end of Tutelo Avenue in Beechwood
City.  The multicolored outdoor sign is faded and it has a red door.  The Home-
brew Cafe is indicated on the paper map by name and with an eight ball.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Homebrew_Caf%C3%A9
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Pool

  2. Niko can use the pink pool table at Playboy X's penthouse on the south side
of Xenotime St. at Galveston Ave., Northwood, Algonquin.  The pink surface is
smoother but more liable to cause pool balls to bounce--a ball may leave the ta-
ble when hit hard toward a corner.

  If you have Niko kill Playboy in "The Holland Play" Niko gets Playboy X's
penthouse as a save place.

  If it isn't Niko's save place you can have Niko (or Johnny or Luis) enter the
penthouse since the patio doors are always open.  You can have him get there by
helicopter (though there isn't much landing room), by jumping from a blue dump-
ster to a fire escape on the south side of the building and climbing up, or by
going to the roof of the adjacent building (Galveston Ave. between Xenotime St.
and Wardite St.), using a car cheat to spawn a car, climbing from the car to the
roof of the door enclosure, and jumping to the fire escape.  (But in "Episodes
from Liberty City" the features inside can't be used.)

  If you have Niko pick up a friend the penthouse isn't shown on the map as a
pool location but Niko can take there to play pool with them.  You could have
Niko transport them in a helicopter.  (Don't have Niko leave by jumping to the
adjacent building or the friend will walk off the roof and die.  The friend may
do that if you have Niko use the fire escape, too, since it only has a partial
guard rail on top.)  The easiest method is to get them both in a land vehicle
and use the Airbreak function (F6) of the Simple Trainer.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Playboy_X%27s_Penthouse


  Each of the two players gets to use a stick--a pool cue--to use to hit the
white ball, the cue ball which isn't numbered, to have it hit whichever of the
other balls, all of which are numbered.  Seven of the numbered balls are solid
colors, seven are striped, and one is the black eight ball.

  They take turns and the first to sink a numbered ball, except the eight ball,
into one of the six pockets of the table tries to sink the other six of the
same type (solid colored or striped) then the eight ball.  The other player's
goal is to do the same thing with the opposite type (solid-colored or striped).

  If they sink a ball that way, they get another turn.  If they sink the eight
ball too early, they lose the game.

  If they sink the cue ball, fail to hit a ball with the cue ball, sink the
other player's type (solid colored or striped), or have the cue ball make first
contact with the other players type, it's a scratch and the other player can
position the cue ball anywhere along the area shown in the game for their turn.

  If they hit their type first with the cue ball but fail to pocket a ball of
their type, it's the other player's turn and they hit the cue ball where the
other player left it.

  The first to sink the eight ball on these terms wins.
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eight-ball

  "GTA IV" uses these "San Andreas" rules (but see below):

  The turn is lost on the following occasions:
  A player pockets the wrong type of ball.
  A player scratches (pockets the white cue ball).
  A player misses all of the balls.
  A player hits a ball, but it doesn't hit the rail.
  A player hits the wrong type of ball first.

  If a player scratches, the other player can put the cue ball anywhere on the
table before shooting.

  The game is won under the following conditions:
  The player pockets all of their striped/colored balls, then pockets the 8-
Ball, before their opponent.
  The opponent accidentally pockets the 8-Ball before they have pocketed all of
their striped/coloured balls.

  The game is lost under the following conditions:
  The opponent pockets all of their striped/colored balls, then pockets the 8-
Ball, before the player.
  The player accidentally pockets the 8-Ball before they have pocketed all of
their striped/coloured balls.
  The player successfully pockets the 8-Ball after pocketing all of their
striped/colored balls, but also pockets the white cue ball in the same shot.

  "GTA IV" adds these rules:

  If the ball jumps off the table, the offending player loses a turn.
  If the 8-ball jumps off the table, the game is lost.
  If you pocket a ball or balls on the break, you can continue with your choice
of stripes or solids, regardless of the ball type you pocketed. The same is
true if the first shot when you pocket any balls include both types of ball.
  If you pocket the 8-ball on the break (the first shot of the game), you win.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Pool

  I used zmoonchild's advice to just let the game line up the shot, pulled the
mouse back and shoved it forward in one motion to shoot, and won the game.  It
might take a few tries but it works.

  "GTA IV PC - How to play Pool" by zmoonchild
  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aORrv1KvVTQ

  Niko has to beat Little Jacob and Packie at Pool for 100% completion of the
game.

  Niko has to beat Roman, Little Jacob, or Packie at Pool to get the "Pool
Shark" Achievement.


  IV.14  Achievements

  Robert Rusk recommends this as a good time to try for the "Walk Free," "One
Man Army," "Wheelie Rider," "Chain Reaction," and "Rolled Over" Achievements.
Doing "Chain Reaction" before Algonquin is open would keep it from creating
more than four wanted stars.  See "Single player Achievements" (I.5.b) for in-
structions.
  http://www.gamefaqs.com/ps3/933036-grand-theft-auto-iv/faqs/53734


  IV.15  Most Wanted part one

  These missions are like the Rampages of earlier GTAs except you can have the
protagonist use any weapon and there aren't as many targets.  When I recommend
you have Niko use "cover" I mean the usual strategies--possibly but not neces-
sarily meaning the "IV" cover system.  Any wanted rating created during an ef-
fort goes away when you've completed the effort.

  When Niko has no wanted rating, is in one of the law enforcement vehicles
that allows access to the police computer--Police Cruiser, Police Patrol, Po-
lice Stockade, NOOSE Cruiser, NOOSE Patriot, and FIB Buffalo--and the vehicle
is stopped, you can press the Action key (E by default; I remap it to Caps
Lock) to bring up the computer to do the Most Wanted missions.  There are 10
for each of the three main areas of the game.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Police_Computer

  The NOOSE Cruiser, used for roadblocks at a three star wanted level, the
NOOSE Patriot, which also appears at a three star wanted level, and the FIB
Buffalo, which appears at four or more wanted stars, are the best performing
cars of those for the mission.

  The Most Wanted list is normally available after "Crime and Punishment"
(V.18) but if you use one of the names listed below the option "Search Police
Records" can be used to find the criminal from the start of the game.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Most_Wanted

  Maxwell Caughlin
  Scott Guzowski
  Antonio Rivette
  Rodrigo Stavnes
  Fernando Tisdel
  Tyler Pickrel
  Preston Pecinovsky
  Alonso Goralski
  Bert Reker
  Freddy Paparo

  After "Crime and Punishment" you can have him go to "View Most Wanted" to see
the ten most wanted criminals to kill in his area--whichever of the three main
areas of the game he's in.

  Select a criminal for information about them, and choose "Locate" to have a
yellow blip show the criminal's location on the map and radar.  One difference
between this and Current Crimes is that there isn't a timer indicating how long
Niko has to reach the target.  When Niko gets close to the target(s), the
blip(s) turns red.

  You can have Niko take whatever money or weapons/ammo (eventually including
Sniper and Carbide Rifles) the criminals leave behind.

  Completing the 30 (ten for each major area of the game) Most Wanted missions
adds 2.5% toward 100% completion of the game and gives Niko the "Manhunt"
Achievement.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/wiki/Most_Wanted

  If Niko tries to start a Most Wanted mission while too close to the target's
location, the screen will say "Updating Server" until Niko moves away.

  IV.15.a  Maxwell Caughlin

  His crime: gang related violence

  Maxwell, in a car with a passenger who has a Rocket Launcher, is on the west
side of Joliet Ave. south of Switch St., South Bohan, and begins driving away
by going north then east as you have Niko drive near him.  Have Niko drive-by
Maxwell and his accomplice.  If you have Niko damage the car enough they bail--
have Niko kill the guy with the Rocket Launcher first.

  IV.15.b  Scott Guzowski

  His crime: gang related violence

  Scott, who has a Micro-SMG, and three accomplices, who have Pistols, are in
the swimming pool area west of Concord Ave./Morris St. in Steinway, Dukes.  You
can have Niko take cover at the roadside wall by the Unique Stunt jump ramp
above and to the east of them, or stand on the wall as need be, and take down
 Scott and the rest.

  IV.15.c  Antoinio Rivette

  His crime: racketeering

  Antoinio, who is fat and has a Micro-SMG, and four accomplices, who have
Pistols, are just north of Sundance St. east of Cayuga Ave. at Schottler subway
station in South Slopes, Broker.  One may come down the stairs as you have Niko
climb them.  Have Niko use cover to get the rest.  He may need to chase one out
of the station.

  IV.15.d  Rodrigo Stavnes

  His crime: racketeering

  Rodrigo and his three accomplices (Spanish Lords) are in the round lounge
area of adjoining apartment buildings between the northern parts of Yorktown
Ave. and Tinconderoga Ave., with a door on each side--one east one west--in
Steinway, Dukes.  I think they have Pistols (?).  As you have Niko approach
they're closer to Yorktown Ave. (the eastern door).

  If you have Niko enter the eastern door to attack them some attack but others
flee through the western door and probably go north.  If you have Niko drive
around the eastern entrance to activate them to go west then have Niko drive
clockwise around the block to go north on Tinconderoga Ave. you can have him
run over or drive-by them as need be.

  IV.15.e  Fernando Tisdel

  His crime: human trafficking

  Fernando and three accomplices are in a car in the subway station lot on
northern Crockett Ave. just west of Wappinger Ave., Hove Beach.  He starts
fleeing by driving east as you have Niko approach him.  Have Niko drive-by him
and his car till they bail then drive-by or run over them or shoot their car
till it explodes.

  IV.15.f  Tyler Pickrel

  His crime: human trafficking

  Tyler is by the northeast side of the Monoglobe in Meadows Park, Dukes.  He
starts running away when you have Niko approach him.  Have Niko run him down
and drive-by him.  You could also have Niko stop some distance away from Tyler
and give him a headshot with your weapon of choice.

  IV.15.g  Preston Pecinovsky

  His crime: credit card fraud

  Preston and four accomplices are in two cars at the west side of Coxsack Ave.
just south of Bronco St., Northern Gardens, Bohan.  You can have Niko get out
of his vehicle on Coxsack Ave. to the east of them and shoot them.  If you do,
make sure to kill any of them that tries to drive away or just blow up their
cars.  If any drive away have Niko drive-by them.

  IV.15.h  Alonso Goralski

  His crime: burglary

  Alonso is in a car by an accomplice who has a Pump shotgun at the toll gate-
looking security entrance at the south end of the oval of road that's west of
the airport terminal.  As you have Niko approach them Alonso will try to drive
away and the other will shoot from near the security booth.  Have Niko drive
into and drive-by Alonso so he doesn't get away, or chase him to drive-by him
if need be, then shoot the other one.

  IV.15.i  Bert Reker

  His crime: drug trafficking

  Bert and six accomplices are in a junkyard at the north side of Valley Forge
Ave. north of the north end of Stone St. in BOABO, Broker.  You can have Niko
use the building on the southwest corner, or get out of his car to the east of
them, to snipe them from above then go into the yard to get the rest as needed.

  IV.15.j  Freddy Paparo

  His crime: grand theft auto

  Freddy and three accomplices are in a car in the parking lot indicated on the
radar/maps by a rectangle north of the west section of Dukes Dr. in Steinway,
Dukes.  As you have Niko approach the car it pulls out so have Niko ram it and
drive-by the driver and the others.  Have Niko chase to drive-by it as needed.

  You might save a police car for "Search and Delete" (V.36) and parts two and
three of the "Most Wanted" missions.


  Zmoonchild shows that before doing another story mission you can get these
things done (in some cases hazarding a high wanted rating):

  The Cousins Bellic 0.70%
  Beat the High Score on CUB3D 1.25%
  Beat the Computer at Darts 1.25%
  Beat the Computer at Pool 1.25%
  Kill all Flying Rats 2.50%

  (If you like to explore game interiors note that the place Roman uses for a
card game in this mission is the Discount Hardware store on the south side of
Dillon St. east of Tuscanora Ave.  The door of it is unlocked till after the
loan sharks of this mission go through it then it's kept closed.  After that
you could use the Airbreak function of the Simple Trainer as a Noclip function
to have Niko enter the room.)

  Don't have Niko drive into the marker with a car you want to save--it will
disappear after the cutscene.

  At the little cab company Roman owns, Express Car Service, Niko meets Mallor-
ie, an office worker Roman is in love with, and Roman's very temperamental loan
shark Vlad (an alcoholic coke addict who owns the bar called "Comrades" across
the street from Niko's save place).  Vlad flirts with Mallorie and tells Roman
he better pay him the money he owes him.  Vlad tries to scare Niko but Niko
seems unimpressed.  Roman has Niko drive him to a hardware store--Roman expects
to get the money he needs from a backroom gambling game there.

  (Liberty City Minute tip: you can take a shortcut through the park, using a
hill to go over a fence, going to and coming from the hardware store in this
mission.)

  At the Discount Hardware store on the south side of Dillon St. east of Tus-
canora Ave. have Niko reverse into the marker to park facing west.

  Roman gives Niko his old cell phone which has Roman's phone number and tells
Niko to warn him if the Albanians he owes money to appear in a beige Willard
while he goes into the store to gamble.

  Niko has to remain in the car, not use weapons, but have the phone ready to
call Roman.  When the loan sharks appear and park across the street (their
light beige Willard appears ahead of Niko's car whether it faces east or west),
have Niko call Roman to warn him.  Roman runs to Niko's car.  Have Niko quickly
drive Roman away from the loan sharks (use Reverse for sharper turns), who
shoot from the pursuing Willard, and back to Roman's cab depot.

  Niko gets $30 and a cell phone.


  V.1.a  Cell phone

  When Niko makes new contacts who can be called, their names appear briefly
over the radar.

  To make the Cell Phone appear in the bottom right corner of the screen, press
the Up arrow.

  To have Niko answer a phone call or answer "yes" to the caller's request
press Enter.  To have Niko reject the call or answer "No" to the caller's re-
quest press Backspace.

  To make the Cell Phone appear in the bottom right corner of the screen, press
the Up arrow.  To make it exit press the Down arrow or Backspace.

  Press Enter to see the phone menu:

  Phonebook  It show those whose phone numbers are in the memory of the phone.

  Giving the sax-playing busker $10, besides filling the protagonist's Health,
goes toward a new ringtone.  Have Niko give money to the sax player a few times

  The sax-playing "busker has the voice and likeness of Walter Houser, father of
Rockstar Games executives Sam and Dan Houser."  (Thanks to 123iamking)  The mes-
sage boards say the sax player playing sax and accepting donations is easiest to
find in "IV, harder to find in TLaD, and hardest to find in TBoGT.  He may be
found at the boardwalk in Firefly Island, Broker, the Superstar Café in Algon-
quin, in the subway at Wardite St. and Frankfort Ave, Algonquin, the park at the

  V.2  Random Characters--Brian

  The green male and female icon for each of the fourteen Random Character ap-
pears as each is available when Niko is close to their meeting spot.

  Complete the first encounter with each Random Character except for Jeff, Cher-
ise, Ivan, and Clarence for 5% toward 100% completion.  (The first encounter
with all of them is required for the "No More Strangers" Achievement.)  Keep a
list of the Random Characters Niko has completed encounters with because it's
easy to forget over the course of the game and the Stat section only gives the
number of Random Characters Niko has completed an encounter with--not the names.

  Have Niko put his cell phone on Sleep mode for the three meetings with Brian.

  Brian Meech: Justin Reinsilber who's been in TV shows and movies such as
playing Nathan Weinschenk in the 2002 TV movie "New Americans," 2002, Officer Ed
Colfax in a 2010 episode of the TV series "Supernatural," Rich in "A New York
Love Story," 2015, etc.
  http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1082204/

  V.2.a  First Encounter

  Have Niko meet Brian on the south side of Cisco St. east of Iroquois Ave.
(east of Roman's cab depot) in Broker after "It's Your Call."  Brian has a dark
green baseball cap-type woolen cap, a dark grey leather bomber jacket over a
red shirt open at the top to reveal a white t-shirt, and blue jeans.  He's
whacked out on cocaine (so yammers too much), vain about being wealthy, and, in
compensation for having been a smart-aleck to Niko, parts by giving Niko $100.

  Having this first encounter contributes to 100% completion of the game and the
"No More Strangers" Achievement.  The subsequent encounters with Brian aren't
needed for either one.

  V.2.b  Second Encounter

  Have Niko meet Brian who's smoking a joint and snorting coke on the north
side of Crockett Ave. east of Iroquois Ave., Hove Beach.  Brian says he'll pay
Niko to transport him.  Have Niko get Brian into a vehicle--he says he wants to
be taken to Masterson St. (at Mohawk Ave.) for "the biggest rock" of crack "in
the world."  After the transaction for the drug have Niko take Brian to the
west side of Wappinger Ave. just south of Hardin St.  Brian gives Niko $200.

  V.2.c  Third encounter

  Don't send Niko to the meet Brian in a police car or you fail the mission.

  Have Niko meet Brian on the west side of Montauk Ave. just north of Dillon
St.

  Brian says he's rehabilitated, engaged, and apologizes for treating Niko bad-
ly.  Brian asks Niko to escort him to pay off a dealer.  Have Niko take Brian
to the east side of Onion St. just north of Asparagus Ave.--during the ride
Brian says step nine of his rehab program is to make amends with those he
harmed.

  The dealer, in an alley with another dealer, is angry that the payment
doesn't include interest, though, and hits Brian with a Baseball Bat.  Have
Niko approach the dealers attacking Brian, aim a gun at the dealers to scare
them off, then drive Brian back to his apartment building on the west side of
Wappinger Ave. just south of Hardin St.  Brian pays Niko $500.

2FKaren

  At Roman's desk at the cab depot, Dardan, an Albanian loan shark, is through
waiting for Roman to pay him the money he owes him.  Dardan threatens Roman
with a knife while Bledar holds Roman in a head lock.  Niko comes in, disarms
Dardan, and scares the two attackers off.

  Roman gets a call from Mallorie to pick her up at the Hove Beach subway sta-
tion.  He's busy so he has Niko do it with Roman's Taxi.

  Have Niko drive to Mallorie's place and park facing the way he went.

  Have Niko drive Mallorie and her friend (Roman's girlfriend) Michelle to Mi-
chelle's apartment.  Mallorie doesn't care for Niko's clothes but at the end of
the ride Michelle gives Niko her phone number and invites him to call her.  Af-
terward, Roman calls and recommends that Niko buy some clothes at a store on
Mohawk Ave. in Hove.

  The Russian Shop clothing store, which sells inexpensive clothes and is the
only one with sunglasses and hats, is open any time in Broker on the west side
of Mohawk Ave. north of Bart St.

  (Liberty City Minute tip: all Niko has to do is get a pair of pants which are
free.)

  You have a choice between having Niko rescue Roman or go on a first date with
Michelle.  I'll have him rescue Roman so Roman doesn't have to go to the hospi-
tal.


  V.4  Bleed Out

  Niko gets a call from Roman asking Niko to save Roman from another attack by
Bledar--this time on the basketball court under the El Train east of the inter-
section of Onandaga Ave. and Garret (St.) in Firefly.  Have Niko go over and
beat up Bledar and Kalem.

  Niko learns fight moves, including dodging and counter-attacks: "Hold RMB to
lock onto your target.  Press LMB to punch.  Press R for alternative punch.
Press Q to kick.  Tap SPACE as your opponent attacks to dodge.  Press LMB or R
after dodging to perform a powerful counter move.  While locked onto an enemy,
the target reticle's eight central segments represent their health.  The color
of the segments represent the type of character you are locked onto.  Red indi-
cates an enemy.  Hold Space to block."

  (Liberty City Minute tip: you could do this faster by having Niko use his car
to break through the gate of the court, and, after the cutscene, have Niko get
back in his car and run over the two targets with his car.  You could just have
Niko shoot them to make it easier to avoid hurting Roman.)

  Afterward, Dardan is seen driving away in a light beige Willard.  Have Niko
take Roman to chase Dardan to a lot between two buildings west-northwest of the
west part of the curve of Creek St.  You can have Niko follow with an alternate
route to avoid the many scripted traffic obstacles.

  While Niko is in a vehicle and there's a target vehicle (enemy to chase or
ally to follow) indicated by a blip on the radar you can use the key for Cine-
matic Camera (Caps Lock by default) to have the game "camera" zoom in on the
target vehicle.

  If you have Niko abandon Roman's Taxi or drive it into the river it triggers
a cutscene of Niko and Roman having gotten off a Bus at Roman's cab depot.

it into him.)

  (Liberty City Minute tip: you could have Niko drive into or drive-by Darden
when he gets out of his car.)
  "Grand Theft Auto 4 Speedrun (4:40:02) Part 2" by MSuraev
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w8P1K6i3Mkk

  If Darden goes up the stairs of the lot and clockwise around the northern of
the two buildings into a room, have Niko follow Dardan who then fights with a
Knife.  We learn how to disarm an opponent--"tap SPACE to dodge then press R or
LMB to disarm"--but you can have Niko use any weapon to defeat him.

  It's not the fastest but the most scenic method is to have Niko use the meth-
od suggested by the game--fight with fists then Darden's Knife till Darden
walks away bent over in defeat.  Let him walk till he pauses near a set of
ceiling to floor windows then have Niko punch to send Dardan through the win-
dows and get a cutscene of him falling into the Humboldt River.
  "GTA 4 - Mission #5 - Bleed Out (1080p)" by GTA Series Videos

  Then have Niko drive Roman back to the depot.

  Niko says one of the reasons he moved from Europe was to get away from Bul-
garin--a Russian who lived on the Adriatic who falsely accused Niko of owing
him money.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Bleed_Out

  Niko gets $50.


  V.5  First Date

  Either Niko gets a call from Michelle or you could have him call her to make
a date.  Have him pick her up--she lives on the west side of Mohawk Ave. at the
second door from the north end of the row houses that are south of the apart-
ment building that's south of the Algonquin-Dukes Expressway.  She agrees to go
to the fun fair.

  Have him take her to the dead end street south of Crockett Ave. and east of
Mohawk Ave. where they see the carnival isn't open.  Have him lead her or drive
her over the boardwalk to Memory Lanes and bowl with her.  (See IV.11 for in-
structions on bowling.)  Have him drive her home.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/First_Date_%28GTA_IV%29

  (Liberty City Minute tips: you could have Niko drive Michelle on the board-
walk to and from the door of Memory Lanes.  You can have him exit out of their
bowling game without failing the mission.)


  V.6  Friends

  Friends--five girlfriends and five male friends--become available as you go
through the game.  If Niko gets a high enough Like stat with them, three of the
girlfriends and each of the male friends provide special abilities (and Mi-
chelle lets Niko keep her Merit).  Each friend except Kate McReary offers a
special ability in return for a qualifying "Like" stat.
  http://www.ign.com/wikis/grand-theft-auto-4/Relationships
  http://strategywiki.org/wiki/Grand_Theft_Auto_IV/Friends
  http://www.gta4.net/friends-and-girlfriends/

  After a friend calls Niko about friendship and Niko is agreeable about it,
Niko can contact them over the phone, or they'll call him, when the friend is
available (see the listing for each friend).  Niko can select the activity to
suggest to a Friend on his phone.   Niko can speed up the growth of the Like
stat by taking the friend to two other activities the friend likes first because
the friend won't ask to be taken home till Niko takes them to the activity they
asked for.  Niko has to wait 5 hours (10 real time minutes) afterward to call
again during the available period.

  They can be a distraction when you want to have Niko do other things.  But
just putting Niko's phone on Sleep Mode will allow the Like stat to drop.  To
have Niko refuse an activity proposed by a friend's phone call without dimin-
ishing the Like stat, have Niko agree to an activity then call back to select
Cancel Plans.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Friendships_in_GTA_IV

  If you have Niko leave the friend in an activity it raises their Like percent
anyway.


  To see the status of friendships, pause the game (Esc), go to Stats > Gener-
al, and look up the friend's Like stat.

  Checklist for 100%

  Do each activity with these three Friends at least once and unlock the special
ability of each at 75% Like.  Keep this checklist and cross out the things done
on it because the Stat section doesn't keep track of that--just the percent of
Like and Respect--and you may feel some of these activities are tedious to do
repeatedly.

  Brucie dining (prefers Superstar Cafe), drinking, bowling, strip club, shows,
heli ride, boating
  Jacob  dining (prefers Cluckin' Bell), drinking (prefers Club Liberty), pool
(beat him), darts (beat him), strip club, shows
  Packie drinking, bowling, pool (beat him), darts (beat him), strip club, shows

   After "One Last Thing" Niko can't share friend activities till after the
last mission.

  (Fortunately, the friend activity isn't required in TLaD or TBoGT.  It isn't
required in "V"--your character can call another for an activity but won't be
called.)


  Male friends

  There are five male friends.

  Raising the "Respect" stat for male friends seems to be the result of doing
jobs for them otherwise.  They may call to request a ride--probably if injured.


  Roman Bellic
  Available after "Bleed Out."

  Venue: Burger Shot, other dining places, drinking, bowling, pool, darts,
strip club, shows  When he moves to a better apartment you could try higher end
places for food.

  His favorite radio station is The Vibe 98.8.

  Roman can be called by Niko to send a cab to take him anywhere for free.  It
can be used when Niko has a wanted level to get him out of the wanted zone.

  Roman isn't available for friend activities if you use the Deal ending.


  Little Jacob
  Available after "Shadow" then 2:00 pm-4:00 am

  Venue: dining (esp. Cluckin' Bell), drinking (esp. Club Liberty), pool,
darts, strip club, shows

  At 75% Like Niko can call Little Jacob, including during a mission, to stop
nearby in a car with guns and ammo that's sold cheaper than at a Gun Store (see
section II.2).

  He likes the Tuff Gong and Massive B Soundsystem 96.9 radio stations.

  Niko can't share friend activities with Jacob after Elizabeta calls Niko to
go to her place but can after "The Snow Storm."


  Brucie Kibbutz
  Available after "No. 1" then 7:00 am-1:00 am

  Venue: Superstar Cafe, other dining places, drinking, bowling, strip club,
shows, heli ride, boating

  He likes the radio stations The Beat 102.7, The Classics 104.1, and Liberty
Rock Radio.

  At 75% Like Niko can call Brucie, select "Chopper," and he'll take Niko some-
where in a helicopter.  Niko can also have Brucie take him on boat rides.


  Dwayne Forge
  Available after "The Holland Play" then 3:00 pm-1:00 am

  Niko must let him live in "The Holland Play."  Dwayne will then let Niko use
Playboy X's apartment where there's a pool table that can be used for a Friend
activity.  Have Niko respond favorably to an Email Dwayne sends to be his
Friend.

  Venue: dining (esp. Cluckin' Bell and Superstar Cafe), drinking, bowling,
strip club, shows

  The radio stations he likes are The Classics and Beat 102.7.  He like the NRG
900 and dislikes fast driving and helicopters.

  At a high enough Like stat Niko can call him to send a car with two men with
a Pistol and Micro-SMG who follow Niko and help him fight for 10-15 min.


  Patrick "Packie" McReary
  Available after "Three Leaf Clover" then 4:00 pm-6:00 am

  Venue: drinking, bowling, pool, darts, strip club, shows  (Note: no dining
places.)

  His favorite radio station is Liberty Rock Radio 97.8.

  At 75% Like Niko can call Packie, select "Bomb," and Packie will put a phone
bomb nearby.  Niko can put the bomb on a car then use his cell phone to acti-
vate the bomb.

  After the funeral of a brother and Gerry ordering Niko to kidnap Gracie Niko
can't share friend activities till after "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend."


  Each of the six things listed below contributes 1.6666 etc. %, for a total of
10%, toward 100% completion.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/100%25_Completion_in_GTA_IV

  - Jacob   Do each available activity with him at least once.
  - Brucie  Do each available activity with him at least once.
  - Packie  Do each available activity with him at least once.
  - Beat a computer or friend at Pool.
  - Beat a computer or friend at Darts.
  - Beat a computer or friend in a full game of Bowling.

  Activities with Roman and Dwayne don't count toward 100% completion because
they can be killed during the game.  You don't get an Achievement for unlocking
Dwayne's special ability.

  Have Niko's friendships with Roman, Jacob, Packie, Brucie, and Dwayne at a
90% or higher Like level for the Liberty City (5) Achievement.


  Girlfriends

  Michelle and Kate appear during missions.  After "Out of the Closet" (VI.6),
Carmen, Kiki, and Alex are available on the in-game Internet--Carmen and Kiki
are available on Love Meet and Alex is on Crap List.

  One half to one day after initiating the date, the girlfriend sends Niko an
Email with the date and time for it which are added to Niko's cell phone.  If
the first date is successful she gives Niko her phone number.

  Unlike raising the Like stat with male friends successful dating involves
more than choosing the venue.  Niko must please them regarding his clothing and
vehicle.

  If Carmen's, Kiki's, or Alex' Like stat is high enough, the "Special Ability"
she can provide is unlocked.

  You can make any vehicle damage-proof by scaring Niko's date right after she
gets in the car though the DP property may disappear at random.  Have Niko fire
a weapon right after her door opening and seating animations are over.  For a
helicopter, have him break off the blades at a height where falling will hurt
her but not kill her.


  Michelle

  Clothing: Russian clothes
  Vehicle: almost any mainstream vehicle or motorcycle--not police cars, trucks,
and beaters or being driven quickly
  Venue: any though her favorites are bowling, darts, pool, the Burger Shot,
diners, and Cluckin' Bell

  Michelle doesn't like the Tuff Gong, The Classics, and Integrity 2.0 radio
stations.

  Michelle lets Niko keep her uniquely colored Merit after her first mission.

  Michelle can't be dated after "The Snow Storm" (she reveals her identity as a
government agent sent to watch Niko) then "Wrong is Right" (she reveals that
her name is Karen, she works for the government, and leaves him).


  Kate McReary  8:00 am-12:00 am

  Clothing: Modo, Russian Shop
  Vehicle: Comet, Turismo, good cars
  Venue: Darts, Pool, eating (except Cluckin' Bell and Burger Shot), drinking

  Her favorite radio station is The Vibe 98.8.

  Kate won't have Niko in her house for "coffee" and doesn't provide a special
ability.

  Kate can't be dated after "One Last Thing"


  Internet Girlfriends

  Kiki Jenkins
  http://www.love-meet.net/  profile name: LawChick
  Available after "Out of the Closet"

  After the first date Niko can call her between 6:00 am and 2:00 am.  She
sends Niko text messages with pictures of her and her butt, cleavage, and va-
gina.  If you have Niko arrange a date Kiki, cancel it, then make a date with
another girlfriend Kiki may stalk him by appearing at the date and cursing the
other girlfriend or by damaging his car.

  "GTA 4 - Kiki Jenkins Stalking" by GTA Series Videos
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kfrildtxUI

  Clothing: Russian Shop clothes but not hats or glasses
  Vehicle: mid-range luxury cars and SUV's such as the Oracle, Cognoscenti,
Cavalcade (and FXT) and Contender
  Venue: bowling, darts, pool, Perestroika, Split Sides and Drinking at Stein-
way Beer Garden

  She doesn't like the Integrity 2.0 radio station.

  Kiki lets Niko call her to remove up to three stars of a wanted rating.  This
works on some missions but can only be done once in a game day and is more
likely to work if Niko was recently on a date with her.


  Alex Chilton
  http://www.craplist.net/  profile name: LiberatedWoman
  Available after unlocking Algonquin

  Have Niko respond to the ad "Party girl seeks man for NSA fun and blog mater-
ial - 29" under "Women seeking men."  Her blog "Liberated Woman" at http://www.blog/-
snobs.org describes her relationship and sex life with Niko so indicates how
successful their dates were.
 
  Her name refers to the same-name musician and a song by The Replacements.
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alex_Chilton_%28song%29
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alex_Chilton

  Clothing: Perseus, the Claude outfit from Playboy X's penthouse, glasses
  Vehicle: Turismo, Infernus, Stretch, Washington, Huntley Sport, motorcycles
(she likes Niko to drive fast but she'll abandon a date if he wrecks and dump
him if he wrecks a lot)
  Venue: Perestroika, Split Sides, the SuperStar Cafe, Mr. Fuk's Rice Box, Jerk-
ov's Bar, Club Liberty, Pizza This..., strip club, drinking (though her blog in-
dicates she dislikes it)

  She sends text messages to Niko including pictures of her body (not graphic)
and asking him how he'd like them for sex.

  At a high enough Like stat Alex allows Niko to call her to get a 50% discount
from all clothing stores for the next 24 in-game hours.


  Carmen Ortiz
  http://www.love-meet.net/  profile name: SoBoHoe
  Available after "Out of the Closet"

  "SoBoHoe" means "South Bohan Whore."
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Carmen_Ortiz

  Clothing: expensive clothes from Modo or Perseus--don't repeat outfits
  Vehicle: luxury vehicles and expensive sports cars/coupes and motorcycles but
she dislikes the Banshee and Faggio.  She enjoys it if Niko escapes a wanted
rating.
  Venue: bars and strip clubs initially then food places except the SuperStar
Cafe; she also likes bowling and pool

  Carmen Ortiz (SoBoHoe) allows Niko to call Carmen for medical advice and a
health boost; this feature has a bug that makes it not work during some mis-
sions.


  Reaching a 100% Like stat with all five girlfriends isn't required for 100%
completion of the game.

  Don't have Niko hit ger, drive wrecklessly, or have blood on his clothes.  If
Niko gets blood on his clothes, have him get some Health to remove the blood.
  http://gta.neoseeker.com/wiki/Grand_Theft_Auto_IV_-_Girlfriends

  Once Niko has her phone number, have him call the girl for a date, pick her
up in the next hour (2 real time minutes), and take her to do something she
likes.

  After a date, wait 5 hours (10 real-time minutes) before having Niko call her
again.  If he calls too often her Respect will diminish.

  After taking a woman home from an Activity she likes, you can have Niko ask
to be taken inside for some coffee or choose whether or not to accept if he's
asked.  If he goes inside, which he's more likely to be able to do when he
dates Michelle and won't happen with Kate, he gets the Warm Coffee Achievement.

  If Niko has a bad date or isn't asked to come in, the girlfriend drops him
temporarily but appears on her web site again three days later.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Girlfriends_in_GTA_IV

  It's easier to wait until after the main storyline to have Niko date the girl
friends available on the Internet.  Kiki Jenkins should be dated when no other
girlfriends are dated because she can react like a "San Andreas" girlfriend if
she catches Niko with another girlfriend--her like stat will go down.

  Every time Niko takes a girlfriend to one of these places, her opinion rating
of that place (such as a specific Burger Shot) goes down five points and her
opinion rating of all similar places (other Burger Shots) goes down one point.
Niko can't take her to a place with an opinion rating below 25, so don't try
the same favorite thing at the same place too often.


  Activities and locations


  Dining

  Niko can dine at any of various Burger Shots, Cluckin' Bells, or the 69th
Street Diner whether alone or with a friend.

  There are ten Burger Shots and four Cluckin' Bells in the game.  Little Jacob
and Dwayne Forge like Cluckin' Bell especially.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Burger_Shot
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Cluckin'_Bell

  - The 69th Street Diner at Bart St. and Mohawk Ave., Hove Beach, Broker  Mi-
chelle likes it especially.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/The_69th_Street_Diner

  - Mr. Fuk's Rice Box, Lyndon Ave. and Boyden Ave., Alderney  Niko can go
there with a friend.  ("Rice Box" is slang for an Asian woman's vagina.)
    http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Mr._Fuk%27s_Rice_Box

  - Superstar Café

  Niko can dine there with a friend--when alone he can enter it but not dine
there.

    1. Denver-Exeter Ave. and Iron St., The Triangle, Algonquin

    2. Quartz St. and Bismarck Ave., Lancaster, Algonquin
 
    Brucie Kibbutz and Alex Chilton are the friends that especially like this
restaurant.
    http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Superstar_Caf%C3%A9

  Friends will pay for food if Niko has no money.
  "Fan Facts #7" by whatever57010
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QO9Ev9SnOlE

  The game has audio files which indicate it was originally going to be called
the Rockstar Cafe.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Rockstar_Caf%C3%A9


  Bowling

  Niko can bowl for $10 by himself or with a friend.

  There are two Memory Lanes bowling alleys:

  1. It's shown by southeast Funland on the radar/maps as a grey rectangle at
the southeast curve of the boardwalk south of the east end of Crockett Ave.,
Broker.

  2. Later, when Algonquin is legally available, he can legally go to one at
the Golden Pier (the name of a mainly recreational but also retail complex on
the Westminster piers which, along with the waterfront marina in The Meat Quar-
ter, are collectively referred to as "Golden Pier") which is along a nameless
road (a sort of driveway) parallel to and west of Union Drive West northwest of
the west end of Iron St., Westminster.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Westminster
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Golden_Pier

  They feature Burger Shots which Niko can use on his own.

  See section IV.11 for bowling instructions.


  Darts

  Niko can play darts with someone that's by the dart board or with a friend.

  There are two places to play a game of darts:

  1. Steinway Beer Garden, Yorktown Ave. and Morris St., Steinway, Dukes

  2. Later, when Algonquin is legally available, Niko can legally play darts at
Lucky Winkles, Galveston Ave. and Hell Gate, Purgatory.

  (Niko can also use these places as bars for a drink when there with a
friend.)

  See section IV.12 for istructions on how to play darts.


  Pool

  Niko can play pool with someone that's by the pool table or with a friend.

  There are two places where Niko can play pool.

  1. The Homebrew Cafe features pool at the corner of the south side of a name-
less street and the west side of the south end of Tutelo Avenue in Beechwood
City.  The multicolored outdoor sign is faded and it has a red door.  The Home-
brew Cafe is indicated on the paper map by name and with an eight ball.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Homebrew_Caf%C3%A9
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Pool

  2. Later, if you have Niko kill Playboy in "The Holland Play," Niko can use
the pink pool table in Playboy X's penthouse, Xenotime St. and Galveston Ave.,
Northwood, Algonquin.  When you have Niko picks up a friend it's not shown on
the map but Niko can go through the door and take the elevator up to play pool
with them.  The pink surface is smoother but more liable to cause pool balls to
bounce--a ball may leave the table when hit hard toward a corner.

  (You can have Niko enter the penthouse otherwise since the patio doors are
always open but the features inside can't be used.)
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Playboy_X%27s_Penthouse
 
  See section IV.13 for istructions on how to play pool.


  Drinking

  Niko can only drink liquor as an activity with a friend.

  There are five bars:

  1. Comrades Bar across the street from Niko's first save place in Hove Beach,
Broker

  2. Steinway Beer Garden, Yorktown Ave. and Morris St., Steinway, Dukes

  and three Niko can legally go to when Algonquin is legally available:

  3. Club Liberty, Wardite St. and Galveston Ave., North Holland  Little Jacob,
Dwayne, and Carmen Ortiz favor this bar.
     http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Club_Liberty

  4. Jerkov's, Albany Ave. and Manganese St., Hatton Gardens   All the friends
like this place but especially Roman Bellic, Brucie Kibbutz, Carmen Ortiz, and
Alexandra Chilton.
     http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Jerkov%27s

  5. Lucky Winkles, Galveston Ave. and Hell Gate, Purgatory

  Have Niko drink by going into the marker in front of the bar.  If you want him
to play darts at Steinway Beer Garden or Lucky Winkles have him avoid that mark-
er and go through the front door.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Bar

  In "IV" drunkenness doesn't just mean a wobbly "camera" but a wobbly protagon-
ist and his driving is impaired as well.  He can't use his cell phone while he's
drunk.

  If a law enforcer sees Niko driving drunk he'll get a wanted star so you might
have him get a taxi ride when he's drunk.


  Strip Club

  Niko can get a lap dance from a stripper whether or not he's with a friend.

  There are two strip clubs:

  1. The Triangle Club on Coxsack Ave., Northern Gardens, Bohan

  2. Later, when Alderney is legally available, Niko can legally enter Honkers
at the corner of Tinderbox Ave. and Julin Ave., Tudor.

  If Niko buys three lap dances from the same stripper, a second stripper joins
her for the third.


  Cabaret

  Niko can see a show at the cabaret whether or not he's with a friend.

  Niko can see cabaret at the Perestroika Cabaret Club on Tulsa St. east of Mo-
hawk Ave., Hove Beach, Broker.  The acts are:

  - The Incredible Kleinman: a magician who takes his basic act from the Amazing
Ballantine.
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carl_Ballantine

  - Ms. Bluesy St. John: a blues singer who favors novel ideas about sex.

  - Dusty Cowpoke: he pantomimes a western shootout.

  - Catch: he's a juggling jester.


  Comedy club

  Niko can see a comedy routine whether or not he's with a friend.

  When Algonquin is legally available, Niko can legally go to Split Sides on the
north side of Jade St. east of Frankfort Ave., Star Junction

  The comedians are Katt Williams or Ricky Gervais.  Two routines can also be
seen by Niko on a TV.  ("The Lost and Damned" adds Frankie Boyle.  The club
isn't available in "The Ballad of Gay Tony.")

  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ricky_Gervais
  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frankie_Boyle
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Split_Sides


  V.7  Friends--Michelle

  Michelle becomes Niko's girlfriend after the mission "Three's a Crowd" (V.3)
and Niko takes her bowling (IV.11).  Then she's available at the "M" icon be-
tween 6:00 am and 11:00 pm.

  Niko doesn't have to date her to advance the storyline.  But if you're going
to have Niko date all the girlfriends, you could have him date Michelle now
while there aren't any other girlfriends to keep Niko busy.  Niko can't date
Michelle after "The Snow Storm" (VII.7).

  Likes & Dislikes:

  Vehicle likes          Roman's Taxi, Merit, Voodoo, Banshee, Blista, Comet,

                                    Bell, bars, and diners
  Activities disliked  The strip club and cabaret

  Radio dislikes       Tuff Gong, The Classics, and Integrity 2.0.

  She likes variety in these things except for clothes.

  Michelle is the most likely to provide "coffee" in her apaertment.  If Niko
gets "coffee" you get the Warm Coffee Achievement.
   http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Michelle_%28GTA_IV%29


  V.8  Friends--Roman Bellic

  Available any time after "Bleed Out" (V.4).

  Activity likes: Strip clubs, eating (especially at Burger Shot but high-end
                           places after getting an upscale apartment), bars, darts

  Vehicle likes/dislikes: he likes fast driving but a motorcycle scares him

  Favorite radio station: The Vibe 98.8

  To screw this up, you'd have to have Niko ignore him or hurt him and let the
Like stat fall below 15%.

  Special Ability at 60% like: Niko can call up Roman, select "Car Service,"
and Mohammed will drive Niko as would a regular cab service.  Mohammed drives an
Esperanto which is replaced by a Cavalcade SUV after "Hostile Negotiation."
This unlocks the Achievement "Driving Mr. Bellic."
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Mohammed

  Mohammed: Manish Dayal  Manish supplied the voice (uncredited) of a hot dog
vendor in the game "Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars," 2009, played Vinay in
"Walkaway," 2010, played Mason 'Hal' Klugman in three 2010 episodes of the TV
series "Rubicon," supplied voices for the game "Star Wars: The Old Republic,"
2011, played Scuba in four 2012 episodes of the TV series "Switched at Birth,"
played Farid Salim in a 2014 episode of the TV series "Law & Order: Special Vic-
tims Unit," starred as Mike Trenton in the TV movie "Identity," 2014, etc.  He
also starred as Faruk in the 2010 short "The Call."
  http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2110485/
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manish_Dayal

  (Liberty City Minute tip: do two of his favorite activities before doing the
one he asked for.  You don't need a high Like stat with Roman for 100% comple-
tion but you might use his Car Service for it.)

  Friendship over 90% like with Roman contributes to the Liberty City (5)
Achievement.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Roman_Bellic

  (After some missions you can have Niko call Roman to hear Niko's opinion about
them.)


  Roman Bellic's missions cont.

  V.9  Easy Fare

  Send Niko to Roman's taxi depot.  Don't have Niko drive into the marker with a
car you want to save--it will disappear after the cutscene.

  Vlad, Roman' loan shark, is still coming on to Mallorie--the office worker Ro-
man is in love with.  Vlad calls Niko a yokel and tells him to fetch some cof-
fee--Niko stares in disbelief.  When Roman arrives Vlad's still belligerent to
him about being owed money from him.  So when Roman tells Vlad about Niko pro-
tecting Roman from a couple of hostile Albanians, Vlad has Roman agree to having
he and Niko to do a few favors for him.  Vlad leaves.

  Roman's customer Jermaine calls Roman for a ride and Roman tells Niko to tend
to it.

  Have Niko take Roman's cab to the west side of Mohawk Ave. on Rotterdam Hill
north of the Algonquin-Dukes Expressway to pick up Jermaine who asks to be tak-
en to (an alley on the north side of) Masterson St. (east of Mohawk Ave.).
Have Niko drive him there.  On the way they joke about Roman's exaggerations
about Niko and Jermaine says he wants to get some stolen items he has in his
lockup.

  At his lockup he says the door of it shouldn't be open so he asks Niko to wait
while he checks it out.  He says the cops are on to him when a couple of police
cars arrive--he tells Niko to get them out of there.  Niko has a two star wanted
rating and a Wanted Circle to escape.

  One way to handle it is to have Niko drive west to Mohawk Ave., speed north
to get out of the wanted rating flashing zone, get out of the sight of the po-
lice (the wanted stars turn from white to grey), then stop to let the flashing
zone disappear.  (It won't work to send Niko into the nearest Pay 'n' Spray,
which is also Jermaine's destination, because the Pay 'n' Sprays aren't avail-
able till after this mission.)  On the way the game explains how the wanted
rating flashing zone works.

  When the wanted rating is gone, have Niko take Jermaine to Native Engines Pay
'n' Spray on the south side of Gibson St. south of Overlook Park.  During the
drive, Niko says one reason he came to Liberty City is he's "looking for some-
thing" but he doesn't say what it is.  He says he wants to help Roman and get
settled in before he starts looking.

  Niko gets $100.

  The Pay 'n' Sprays are available.

  Pay 'n' Sprays have individual names in "GTA IV."  They can repair and change
the color of a vehicle and remove Niko's wanted rating.  Niko can only use a
Pay 'n' Spray when he either has no wanted rating or has one but is at least
out of the sight of law enforcement--the wanted star or stars turn from white
to grey.  Using a Pay 'n' Spray advances time three hours.  It costs $100 if
his vehicle is in need of repair--otherwise it's free.

  - Native Engines is on the south side of Gibson St. south of Overlook Park,
Hove Beach, Broker.

  I'll list the others in case you want to have Niko use one in an area that
currently gives him a six star wanted rating:

  - Auto Limbo is one of two spray shops in Algonquin--it's on the south side
of the curve where the west end of Lorimar St. becomes the south end of West
Way in Purgatory (north of the northern end of an abandoned elevated subway
track).  It has the advertising gimmick of a big revolving spray can, spraying
red "paint," on the roof.

  - Auto Cowboys is the second spray shop in Algonquin--it's farther north on
the south side of the north end of Frankfort Ave. west of Exeter Ave., North-
wood, by an elevated part of the Algonquin Inner Line subway.

  Axel's Pay 'n' Spray is the name of two spray shops in Alderney:

  - the southern Axel's Pay 'n' Spray is on the north side of Hardtrack Ave.
just west of Roebuck Rd. in Port Tudor, and

  - the northern Axel's Pay 'n' Spray is on the north side of Panhandle Rd.
west of Catskill Ave. in Leftwood (underneath the north end of the Plumbers
Skyway).
  http://www.grandtheftwiki.com/Spray_Shops_in_GTA_IV

  Vlad calls Niko and tells him to meet him at Comrade's Bar to do some work to
help pay Roman's debt.


  Vladimir Glebov's missions

  V.10  Bull in a China Shop

  At Comrades Bar across the street from Niko's apartment, Random Character Mel
(V.34) makes a brief appearance as a drunk stumbling past Niko to the exit.
Vlad, still condescending, tells Niko to go to a China shop on Camden Ave. to
coerce a man to pay Vlad the money he's owed him for months.  He gives Niko a
Baseball bat.

  Have Niko go to the Korean pottery, etc., shop on the north side of Huntington
St. just west of Camden Ave.  (You could have Niko take a Taxi ride there--this
is the first mission that let's Niko take a Taxi ride.  See more below.)  Have
him go into the yellow marker.  The owner, defiant behind his locked doors,
still won't pay.

  Doing this the way the game suggests: have Niko go west to a lot on the south
side of Livingston St.  Scroll or press 1 to equip Fist, press the Action key
(E by default) to have him pick up a brick, and the Fist symbol changes to an
open hand with an arrow across it.  The brick can then be thrown or dropped.

  Have Niko return to the shop, target (RMB) one of the display windows (not
the glass doors), and press Fire (LMB)--the longer you hold down Fire, the far-
ther Niko will throw--then release Fire to have Niko throw the brick through
one of the windows.

  (Liberty City Minute tips: you could have Niko take a taxi to the shop, skip
the trip, and, without going into the yellow marker, shoot a display window,
run to a display window and push at it with his hands to break it, or have him
drive into a display window.)
  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7lG8cvw5Sk

  The shop owner pays up.  Have Niko go back to the bar to give Vlad his money.

  Niko gets $50.

  Roman calls to tell Niko that he and Brucie are making prank calls to get the
police to come see something then laughing as the police look around for it.
Niko advises Roman not to cry wolf.

  Vlad sends Niko a text message to see him for more work.
 
  Niko can hail a Taxi for a ride, so he can also now get the "It'll Cost Ya"
Achievement.  The easiest way is to have Niko take a Taxi ride just across a
bridge without skipping the trip.

****

  Taking a Taxi ride

  Have Niko approach a taxi, press the LMB (fire) to have him hail it, then
hold F/Enter for him to enter as a passenger.  (To have Niko replace a passen-
ger, have him approach the passenger's door then hold F/Enter.)

  You can pick from a list of destinations or select a different one by bring-
ing up the start menu and putting a waypoint on the map.

  When taking a Cab ride you can skip the ride at an extra cost.  You can also
hurry the trip.  You can have Niko change the radio station.

  After getting a 90% like stat with Roman (V.8) Niko doesn't have to pay for
taxi rides till "Roman's Sorrow" (V.32).

  After "Roman's Sorrow," you might have Niko fire a gun as he gets to his des-
tination to frighten the driver into running away so Niko doesn't have to pay
the fare.

****


  V.11  Hung Out to Dry

  At Comrades bar Vlad has Niko hear him end a call to Mallorie--Roman's lady
friend.  Niko tells him to stay away from her.  Vlad wants Niko to collect mon-
ey from Muscovski, a Masterson St. laundromat owner, who's not only behind in
his payment but has threatened to call the police on Vlad instead.  Vlad wants
Niko to beat Muscovski.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Muscovski

  Have Niko go to the laundromat which, despite what Vlad said, is on the east
side of Oneida Ave. south of Tulsa St.

  The laundromat owner tries to get away in a van.  Have Niko drive after him.
(The game recommends that you hold Cinematic Camera--Caps Lock by default--to
focus the "camera" on the target vehicle.)  Have Niko PIT maneuver the van
(shove the back of the side of the van with the front side of his vehicle to
spin the van to face the way they came), or ram or bump it around, or get it
wedged into something so it can't move, to get the laundromat owner to stop and
promise to pay.

  Niko calls Vlad to report what happened.  Vlad is glad, if still referring to
Niko as a yokel, and invites him to come back to the bar soon.

  (Thanks to a post by TheFighterdoken for whatever57010's Youtube video for
this speedy Liberty City Minute gimmick:

  (Have Niko shoot the yellow marker from the corner to the south of the laun-
dromat to activate Muscovski to run to his van, immediately run east between
the corner building and the elevated onramp and jump down the stairs, run north
to the van, and press Enter/Exit--F by default--when it's nearby.  You'll get
the final cutscene and pass the mission.
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ccv5KgkEsgY

  Niko gets $100.

  The laundromat is always accessible and has one of the cash registers Niko
can rob for $9 to $199, which gives Niko one wanted star (I.12.b).

  Muscovski may appear with different facial hair in replays or different parts
of the game.


  V.12  Clean Getaway

  Vlad--temperamental, coke-addicted, and condescending--wants Niko to take a
subway to the projects by the E.I.C. (East Island City) subway station (Hunt-
ington St. station) to take a silver Blista from a guy who owes Vlad money.

  The game instructs you to have Niko take the subway from the Hove Beach sta-
tion to the Dukes Blvd. station.  If you prefer you can have Niko drive to it.
The car is on the east side of the north end of Yorktown Ave.--the car appears
on the map/radar when Niko gets in the vicinity of it.

  The car owner, Jimmy, refuses to let Niko take it.

  The game shows how to perform a stun punch.  It can't be performed during
combat.  Hold the RMB to lock onto an unsuspecting target, have Niko approach
them unarmed, and, when the reticle changes, press Fire (LMB).  This knocks the
target to the ground.

  However, this is one of the only times in the game where the stun punch
works.  Otherwise, you can have Niko stun punch bouncers at the Perestroika
club.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Clean_Getaway

  You can have Niko fight with Jimmy and his friend before taking the silver
Blista Compact or just drive it away.

  The game says to drive the car to the lockup.  During the drive Niko calls
Vlad and tells him the car is dirty.  Vlad tells him to get it cleaned at the
Saratoga Ave. car wash then take the car to the lockup in a lot on Mohawk Ave.

  You can have Niko use the car wash on the east side of Saratoga Ave. east of
the east end of Lynch St. or use the car wash on the east side of the southern
part of Tutelo Ave. ($5).  It also works to have Niko use a Pay 'n' Spray.  You
psss the mission if you have Niko deliver a clean car even if it's damaged but
functional.

  Have Niko put the car in the lockup in a lot between Mohawk Ave. and Munsee
Ave. south of Tulsa St.

  Niko gets $150.

  In the opening segment, Vlad, crossing the street, tells a motorist who
brakes right beside him, "Hey--I'm walking here!"  It's a reference to Enrico
Salvatore "Ratso" Rizzo (Dustin Hoffman) using the line in a similar circum-
stance in the 1969 movie "Midnight Cowboy."

  V.13  Ivan the Not So Terrible

  Ivan Bytchkov: Lev Gorn who played Eton Ben-Eleazer in six 2003 episodes of the
TV series "The Wire," Cpl. Traina in ten episodes of the TV series "Trenches,"
Dominic Salerno Jr. in the 2013 movie "Once Upon a Time in Queens," Arkady Ivano-
vich in 36 2013-2016 episodes of the TV series "The Americans," etc.

  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Grand_Theft_Auto_IV_characters#Ivan_
Bytchkov

  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lev_Gorn

  (When Vlad surprises Niko joking "Bang Bang, you are dead" it's a reference
to Vladimir Lem who said it often in the 2001 game "Max Payne."
  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_Payne
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Vladimir_Glebov

  At Comrades bar Vlad shows Niko a picture of Ivan whom Vlad says plans to rob
Roman.  Niko asks: "So, why is Ivan going to rob my cousin?"  Vlad says: "Be-
cause I want you to kill him."  It's a set up--Ivan offended Vlad's boss Mik-
hail Faustin so Ivan's been led on to attempt a robbery of Roman's paperwork,
and Vlad wants Niko to murder Ivan and leave it to look like defense against a
robber.  Niko's uncertain till Vlad threatens that Mr. Faustin will be very an-
gry with Niko and Roman if Niko doesn't do it.  He orders Niko to wait for Ivan
at Roman's depot.  Vlad gets back on his phone (presumably to Mallorie).

  Have Niko drive to Roman's garage where Ivan's car speeds out and away.  Have
Niko's car chase after Ivan's car.

  Thanks to "GTA IV - Ivan The Not So Terrible (All Possibilities)" by what-
ever57010 for showing that there are two chase possibilities: short and long.
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3U_UxYLWcsk

  If Niko goes north on Mohawk Ave., west on Cisco St., then south on Iroquois
Ave. (the route I'd usually take to Roman's depot) the chase is short.  If Niko
goes north on Iroquois Ave. then east on Cisco St. the chase is long.

  Once Niko gets to Roman's garage, Ivan drives from Niko.  Have Niko drive af-
ter Ivan to a construction site on north Kid St. west of Onandaga Ave. then the
chase is on foot.  Send Niko after Ivan up ladders jumping from building to
building, etc.  Ivan pleads with Niko that Vlad set him up.

  Niko catches up to Ivan with Ivan hanging from a beam several stories over a
street pleading that Vlad isn't worth killing someone for.

  You may or may not have Niko kill Ivan.  If Niko kills Ivan, Ivan won't re-
turn as a Random Character and Niko won't be able to get the "No More Strang-
ers" Achievement.

  Vlad will seem satisfied either way, and Ivan has a point that Vlad isn't
worth murdering for and set Ivan up, so I'd have Niko let Ivan live.  Ivan then
promises to stay out of the area.

  (Liberty City Minute tip: Niko can shoot Ivan as he runs and jumps over the
roofs of the construction site.  If Niko has a powerful gun, he might shoot
Ivan as he runs to a ladder.)

  Niko calls Vlad and says Ivan came to a sticky end.  Vlad boasts that he's
having sex with Malorie: "You and your cousin's girlfriend should get together.
She likes sticky finishes as well."  Niko, infuriated, says, "Fuck you.  Say
that to my face and I will break you."

  (To have Niko get back to his car send him west over the roof, down the fire
escape, north down from two roofs, north to Kid St., then east.)

  Niko gets $200.

  Thanks to Robert Rusk for identifying this mission as one that lets Niko take
advantage of a limited wanted rating exploit, which makes it easier for Niko to
kill Flying Rats, etc.  Have Niko leave Ivan hanging, and Niko can shoot Flying
Rats, etc., and come back to decide Ivan's fate later.

  During the exploit, Niko is less liable to get a wanted rating for using
weapons.  He can still get a four star wanted rating for going onto the tarmac
of the airport or get a six star wanted rating for going beyond the legal
boundary before Algonquin is legally available.


  Roman Bellic's missions cont.

  V.14  Jamaican Heat

  "Little" Jacob Hughes: Coolie Ranx (originally Obi-Ajula Ugbomah) is a New
York City-based musician best known for being in the Third Wave Ska bands The
Toasters (their "Dub 56" album features two songs he wrote) and Pilfers (he pro-
vided lead vocals for their second album "Chawalaleng" and who reunited about six
times since 2005).  He's recorded and toured with the Fear Nuttin' Band.
  http://www.rudegal.com/
  http://thetoasters.band/
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coolie_Ranx

  Roman can't get Niko to be clear about what especially troubles him about his
past war experience.  Roman tells Niko pick up a Jamaican friend--Little Jacob.
(Roman says Jacob is "on Oneida Ave. in South Slopes" but he's wrong.)  Have
Niko drive to the east side of Munsee Ave. east of the east end of Chive St.
and honk the horn.

  (If you haven't turned on the subtitles already, turn them on.  An interpret-
er wouldn't be a bad idea, either.)  Jacob tells Niko to take him to Dillon St.
in Schottler.  (How does Bosnian Niko always know what Jacob's saying?)  Jacob
speaks a Rastafarian (lyaric) dialect of English.

  "Bloodclot" is a Jamaican derived curse word that can be used the same way as
"fuck" and "ras clot" is a more general swear phrase.

  Have Niko drive Jacob to a lot on the south side of Dillon St. east of Sene-
ca Ave.

  On the way there, Jacob says he wants Niko to wait for him there, gives Niko
a Pistol, and tells Niko to use it if he sees he needs to help Jacob with it.
The people ("ras clot") Jacob is meeting fought with his friend Real Badman
the other day, and they might make trouble though Jacob wants peace.

  (Liberty City Minute tip: Niko can run them down with his car.)

  They drop a lot of money so have Niko gather it then drive to the front of
the building to pick up Jacob and take him to a townhouse on Savannah Ave. in
Meadows Park.  Jacob says Badman told him to get the ones who created the setup
at the last place.  The destination is an apartment building on the west side
of Savannah Ave.--it's the first apartment building seen going north approx.
where an extension of 8 o'clock would be from the circle of roads around the
nearby Monoglobe.

  Have Niko go to the marker at the top of the stairs and crouch with a strong
weapon.  Jacob is ambushed by several men.  If you keep Niko in the location
Jacob probably won't be killed.  Have Niko shoot the three attackers in the lot
ahead and below and one that then comes from a rooftop door to the east.  (You
might have Niko gather their weapons.)

  Have Niko take Jacob back to the Homebrew Cafe on the southern section of Tu-
telo Ave.  Jacob thinks he and Niko could work together, and Niko says he al-
ways wants work if it pays.  Jacob gives Niko his phone number.

  Niko gets $150.

  Little Jacob calls asking for Niko's help.

  Roman calls asking Niko to be a taxi driver.


  V.15  Taxi cab missions

  For each fare you want Niko to do, select "Roman" in the phonebook and choose
"Job."  Roman will tell Niko where to find a customer to pick up and where
they want to go.  There's a time limit (though no timer appears) but it's easy
to have Niko deliver the passenger in time.  The pay is better if Niko drives
to the passenger's requested destination quickly.

  These missions are only available until either Niko delivers 10 fares or Ro-
man's cab depot is destroyed in "Roman's Sorrow" (V.32).  Completing this mis-
sion isn't a requirement for 100% completion of the game.

  Little Jacob's missions

  V.16  Concrete Jungle

  The title of this mission comes from the name of a late 1960's Bob Marley
tune used for the opening song of "Catch a Fire," 1973.
  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_eFFmxvQH0
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catch_a_fire

  Have Niko go to Jacob's apartment with a red door on the north side of Dillon
St. at the second building west of Cayuga Ave.  Jacob says "me bleach hard last
night."  "Bleach" means to "stay awake the whole damn night, usually to work on
some sort of project."
  http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=bleach%3B%20bleaching%20it

  (Since Niko earlier didn't understand Vlad saying "take the shit out of me"
in English it's a relief to hear that Niko doesn't understand something Jacob
says in his heavy dialect.)

  Jacob asks Niko to drive him (Jacob's Virgo is parked outside) to a money mak-
ing deal on Saratoga Ave. in Willis.  It's at the intersection of alleys for
which one alley entrance is on the west side of Saratoga Ave. south of the T-in-
tersection of Saratoga Ave. and Howard St.  Have Niko drive Little Jacob to the
marker on the east side of Saratoga Ave.  On the way, Jacob says he's making a
deal to buy some ganja (marijuana) but the deal might go wrong.

  After dropping Jacob off, Jacob goes east to the door of a building south of
the alley entrance mentioned above.  Have Niko drive into the alley to the
marker at the intersection of alleys to wait.

  Jacob soon calls warning Niko--the dealers had no stuff but tried to take his
coil (money).  Jacob got the money but wants Niko to finish the dealers if they
try to escape from the back of the building.  Have Niko kill the three crooked
runners (people who deliver illicit things) who run into view to the south and
run south in the southern alley.

  ("Coil": Money; particularly a large amount of paper money that has been
rolled into a cylinder.)
  http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=coil

  (Liberty City Minute tip: Niko can run them down with his car.)

  (Don't waste your time tip: you can have Niko call 911 for the police but
they're so ineffective you shouldn't bother.)

  They drop a lot of money so have Niko gather it then drive to the front of
the building to pick up Jacob and take him to a townhouse on Savannah Ave. in
Meadows Park.  Jacob says Badman told him to get the ones (blood clot) who
created the setup at the last place.  The destination is an apartment building
on the west side of Savannah Ave.--it's the first apartment building seen going
north approx. where an extension of 8 o'clock would be from the circle of roads
around the nearby Monoglobe.

  Have Niko draw his gun as he walks Jacob to the front door.  Jacob says
they're going to "set dis place pon fire" (with gunfire) so have Niko take co-
ver (Q) at the edge of the wall beside the door.  After Jacob kicks the door
open and takes cover, have Niko shoot the crook inside who comes down the
stairs.  (To have Niko shoot from cover, target the guy by aiming with the
mouse while holding down the RMB and press the LMB.)

  Jacob tells Niko to see another target inside by looking in the porch window.
Have Niko break the window (target it and press Fire), take cover at the side
of it, and shoot or throw a Grenade at the target.

  There are two more crooks in there.  You can have Niko do most of the shoot-
ing from the same place of cover and send him inside to finish it.  There's a
First Aid Kit on a table inside.  Have Niko gather weapons as needed.

  Have Niko drive Jacob back to the Homebrew Cafe.  (If Niko gets a wanted rat-
ing it's gone when he drives into the marker at the cafe.)  On the way, Niko
says he likes working for Jacob.  Jacob says Badman will be happy--that Jacob
looks out for Badman like Niko looks out for Roman.  Jacob says Badman tells
Jacob who to shoot, even if it isn't always logical--Badman could stab a man
for making a face at him.  Niko advises Jacob to agree before he follows orders
and says he made he mistake of not doing that a long time ago.  Jacob says Niko
is right but that Jacob follows Badman anyway--Badman is his "braa" (brother).

  In an alternate dialogue Niko says things here are run by the law of the jun-
gle (people killing each other to be on top--the strong survive, etc.).  Jacob
agrees and calls it the law of the concrete jungle.

  Niko gets $200.


  Roman Bellic's missions cont.

  V.17  Uncle Vlad

  When Roman tells Niko he thinks Mallorie has been fooling around with Vlad,
Niko says he suspected it (due to what Vlad said on the phone after "Ivan the
Not So Terrible," V.13).  Roman is mad that Niko was disloyal for not telling
him, and Niko is angry about being called disloyal.

  (He also points out Roman's hypocrisy in seeing other women while complaining
about Vlad who seems to have had Mallorie's consent at that.  Moral ambiguity
fans take heart.)

  Now that Niko has seen how much Roman cares, he goes to take care of Vlad.

  Have Niko take Roman to Comrades Bar.  On the way, Roman tells Niko not to do
anything stupid but Roman lets how upset he is show through.  Niko seems deter-
mined to pick up the slack (overcompensate?) where Roman caves on the issue.
Once in front of the bar Niko tells Roman to wait outside.  Send Niko into the
bar.

  (I'm not sure what Vlad means joking, "Why have cabbages when you can have
potatoes?"  "Cabbage" can be slang for female genitals or paper money, so...?
"Poppies" is Irish slang for "potatoes" and could also refer to drugs--does he
mean why have money when you could have drugs?  Dunno.)
  http://www.peevish.co.uk/slang/c.htm
  http://www.yourdictionary.com/cabbage

  Niko tells Vlad he told him to stay away from Mallorie and that now Roman is
upset.  When Vlad ridicules the idea condescendingly and ridicules Roman, who's
joined Niko inside, Niko gets insistent.  Vlad tells his two big men to throw
Niko and Roman out of the bar.  Vlad goes out the back door while Niko tells
Roman to go back outside.

  You can have Niko shoot Vlad's two men or just run past them and go out the
front or back door.  Vlad won't attempt his getaway in a Marbelle till Niko
leaves the bar.  (You might have Niko shoot the two men just so they won't try
to keep him from getting into his vehicle.)

  Have Niko get back in his car and chase Vlad's car.  (There's no penalty if
you have Niko leave Roman behind--Roman will reappear later when he's needed.)
During the chase Roman panics about the trouble hurting Vlad could cause and
tries unsuccessfully to talk Niko out of killing Vlad.  Be careful of the
scripted roadblocks.  Vlad's car stops by a lot just south of the east end of
the Algonquin Bridge and he goes near the coast.  Have Niko go to Vlad.

  Vlad warns Niko defiantly that he couldn't get away with killing him--Faustin
will get revenge, etc., and the game indicates that Vlad is one of the charac-
ters you have Niko perform an execution on.

  You can have Niko use whatever method to kill Vlad.  If you want Niko to use
an execution have Niko equipped with a Pistol, target Vlad, and when the reti-
cle flashes Niko can perform the execution.  It results this time in a cutscene
in which Niko shoots Vlad in the head.

  (If Niko has no handgun or has a Desert Eagle the game will equip him with a
Pistol so you can learn how to have Niko perform an execution.)

  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Uncle_Vlad

  Roman comes by and panics about what Faustin's and Vlad's men will do to
them.

  Roman's been asking Niko what drove him to come to Liberty City and Niko fi-
nally tells him.  Niko says that when he was in the Army, his group of fifteen
were on a mission to ambush a squad that killed a bunch of innocent people.
The effort was foiled because one of his group betrayed them--he took money to
have the group set up.  Twelve died and three escaped.  For ten years Niko has
been looking for the other two.  One of the other two lives in Liberty City and
Niko has to find out if he's the traitor and why he betrayed them.

  Roman says Niko might not find out now and wants Niko to help him drag Vlad's
body to the river.  When they hear a police car siren, Niko tells Roman to go
and dumps the body into the Humboldt River alone.

  The game teaches that having Niko call contacts may open activities sooner
than by waiting for them to call, and it recommends that Niko call Roman.  Ro-
man tells Niko to come see him quickly.


  V.18  Crime and Punishment

  The title of the mission comes from the name of a book by Russian author Fyo-
dor Dostoevsky.  It was originally published in installments in The Russian
Messenger in 1866.

  Roman calls Niko--whispering, Roman urges Niko to meet him on Tulsa St. near
the Perestroika club.  Send Niko to the blue dumpster on the west side of Mun-
see Ave. just north of Tulsa St.

  Niko finds Roman hiding in a trash dumpster worried that he'd been followed
by men out to kill him to revenge Vlad's death.  Niko tells Roman not to wor-
ry--Faustin's men don't care about Vlad, just making money, so Niko and Roman
will offer to work for Faustin.  Niko gets cold cocked by the butt of an AK-47.
The gunman points his gun at Roman and orders him to follow.

  Niko, tied to a chair, wakes up after being slapped by Dimitri Rascalov in
the basement of Dimitri's boss Mikhail Faustin (not present).  Dimitri is ac-
companied by Andrei and another man.  Roman's been tied to a chair and gagged
so he won't scream.

  Andrei orders Niko to say who he works for, Niko says "Roman," Andrei says
that's not good enough, Niko makes fun of him, and Andrei uses his gun to hit
Niko in the head a couple times.  Faustin comes downstairs and angrily tells
them to shut up--his wife is watching TV.  He calls Andrei an imbecile for us-
ing torture in Faustin's house yet not finding out who Niko works for.

  Faustin asks Niko if he thinks it's okay to kill one of his men, and when
Niko says "If he is an a**hole, yes," Faustin shoots Andrei ib the head.
Faustin tells Niko he's lucky--Vlad was just kept around because Faustin f**ked
Vlad's sister.

  Faustin offers Niko the job of stealing someone else's runner's stolen ship-
ment of TVs so Faustin's group can sell them.  Niko asks that Roman be untied,
Roman won't stop screaming when his gag is removed, and Faustin shoots Roman in
the stomach.  Dimitri assures Niko that Roman will be taken care of and tells
Niko to get a police car.

  Once Niko appears outside, have him go to the left where a police car stops
and the police officer runs into a yard.  To avoid a wanted rating wait till
the officer goes into a back yard then have Niko take the Police car to south-
west Broker.  Have Niko find out which of the three vans driving around that
area is the one with the shipment.  The three vans repeat a clockwise loop--see
the map by whatever57010:
  http://glenster1.webs.com/GTA4_CrimeAndPunishmentVanRoutes_whatever57010.JPG

  The correct van is random.  Have Niko turn on the siren (Left Shift) and stop
in front of a van to stop it then walk to the driver's window.  The right van
has two people in the front seat, not one, but stop each van in turn so it's
discounted by the game.  Having Niko approach the one with TVs in the back will
cause a cut scene in which Niko has the two guys in the front of the van get
out and has the driver open up the back of the van.  The van driver may warn
"You're making a mistake--we're paying protection money to Kenny Petrovic" and
the passenger points a gun at Niko.

  You might have Niko shoot the armed man or at least target him to make him
back away and take the van--if needed, have him drive to get rid of a any
wanted rating.  Have Niko drive the van to the lockup on the north side of the
southern and east-west section of Franklin St.--the first garage door east of
the alley.

  Niko calls Dimitri who tells him Roman is okay and Niko did good--Mikhail
needs someone like him.  Roman calls--he weakly says he's recovering and asks
Niko to buy him some adult diapers.

  Niko gets $200.

  Faustin's and Dimitri's names are added to Niko's phonebook.

  The Police Car can be saved for the Vigilante missions.


  V.19  Vigilante--Current Crimes

  Vigilante missions are available after "Crime and Punishment" (V.18).  The 20
Current Crimes don't have to be handled consecutively.  Have Niko accept invi-
tations by friends then cancel them to avoid having their Like stat drop while
doing this.

  Niko has to use a law enforcement vehicle that has a computer--a Police Pa-
trol car, a NOOSE Patriot (three or more wanted stars), or an FIB Buffalo (four
or more wanted stars).

  If you don't want Niko to look for a Police Patrol car at a police station or
find one on the street to jack, you can have Niko dial 911, select "Call Police
Backup," then jack the police car that appears after the policeman on the pass-
enger side gets out.

  The NOOSE Patriot is sturdy.   If you're using a PC version of the game and
don't want Niko to get three wanted stars to get one, you could use a vehicle
spawner.

  If you don't want Niko to get four wanted stars to get an FIB Buffalo, he can
use a phone number code to spawn one: 227-555-0100.


  If Niko has no wanted level, have him access the police computer and select
"View Current Crimes."  Niko can choose one of the three types of crimes to
stop:

  - criminal on foot--Niko has to kill a criminal who's on foot.

  - gang activity--Niko has to kill four or more gang members.  (Get Niko's Mo-
lotovs or stronger weapons ready.)

  - stolen car--Niko has to kill car thieves.  In the first missions, one of
them shoots at Niko with a submachine gun from the stolen car--in later mis-
sions, more shoot from the car.  It's the hardest of the three.


  Once the selection is made, the siren is activated, a timer gives the amount
of time Niko has to reach the target, and, if the criminal isn't in the immedi-
ate vicinity, a yellow blip indicates the location of the target.  Niko can
leave his vehicle for up to 30 seconds.  The blip turns red and the timer dis-
appears once Niko gets to the target, and Niko can leave his vehicle for any
length of time.  The mission is over (but doesn't count as a failed mission) if
Niko lets the criminal get too far away, though.

  Niko loses any wanted rating he created at the end of the mission unless he
kills a policemen, which creates a three star wanted level, while doing it.  As
Rusk recommends, it's best to let a police officer and a criminal fight it out
rather than have the policeman witness Niko shooting the criminal if you don't
want Niko to have to get rid of a wanted level.  I'll add that you might try to
get the criminal between Niko and a policeman that shoots at Niko to have the
policeman get into a shooting match with the criminal instead since the wanted
level disappears once the criminal is dead.

  Avoid having Niko shoot a pedestrian, which is more likely to create a wanted
rating than if Niko shoots a criminal.

  Niko gets whatever money or weapons/ammo (eventually including Sniper and
Carbide Rifles) the criminals leave behind.

  Completing the Current Crimes missions adds 2.5% toward 100% completion and
gives Niko the "Cleaning the Mean Streets" Achievement.

  Once Niko has the Achievement, you can use the poor or advanced weapon phone
codes (I.16) without worrying about blocking it.

  Brett: ?
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Brett

  Send Niko to Mikhail Faustin's mansion on the west side of the south end of
Shinnecock Ave., Beachgate (the southeast end of the map).  Faustin's partner
Dimitri Rascalov lets Niko in where Niko sees Faustin snorting coke, drinking,
and throwing both ends of mood swings, but mainly angry tantrums, at Dimitri,
whose efforts to make him calm and reasonable have questionable effect.  Dimi-
tri says he and Niko are going to go take care of a guy and Faustin tells him
to make the guy suffer.

  There's a Turismo in Faustin's driveway from the start of the game.

  Have Niko take Dimitri to the sex shop with a yellow awning advertising
books, magazines, and comics on the north side of the south curve of Delaware
Ave. (where the "D" of "Delaware" is on the paper map) where the owner hasn't
been sharing his substantial porn movie production and web site profits with
Faustin's group.  Dimitri gives Niko a Pistol and, in the name of profit, has
Niko merely threaten (target--RMB) Joseph Kaplan--the one in charge and on the
right of three men.  After the man in the middle speaks, the game instructs you
to target him instead.  Dimitri tells Niko to shoot that man, the porn actor
Brett, in the leg--have Niko do it.  Dimitri then gets the money he wants from
Joseph.  Have Niko follow Dimitri back out then lead him into Niko's vehicle.

  Dimitri will fight any ped that tries to attack Niko.

  (Dimitri doesn't provide Friend activities but, for whatever it's worth, his
favorite radio station is Vladivostok FM.)

  The store is open from the start of the game.

  Have Niko take Dimitri to a gun store on the east side of the alley that's on
the south side of Dillon St. east of Munsee Ave. in Schottler.  There, Dimitri
tells Niko to take he likes--Faustin will pay for it.  Examples of the weapons
the little store carries are laid on tables, and having Niko walk up to a weap-
on causes the game to indicate if it's currently available.  An available weap-
on can be inspected (Action), and Niko can then either purchase it (Enter) or
cancel the purchase (Action).  Added ammo costs less (see section II.2).  Ammo
in each category of gun (handgun, shotgun, submachine gun, rifle, and sniper ri-
fle) is interchangeable.

  Have Niko take Dimitri back to Faustin's place.  On the way there, Dimitri
tells Niko that Faustin has become bloodthirsty and unpredictable lately, which
is why Dimitri wants Niko to help him.  Niko asks Dimitri to tell Faustin that
so he won't try to kill Niko, too.  Dimitri invites Niko to come see them at
the club (Perestroika) soon.

  Niko gets $400.

  Gun Stores now do business and have Armor for $500, the Baseball Bat for $5,
the Pistol for $600 added ammo $35, and the Micro-SMG for $1,200 added ammo
$100.

  V.21  Final Destination

  Have Niko go to the Perestroika club on the north side of Tulsa Ave. east of
Mohawk Ave.

  The title refers to the same-name 2000, 2003, etc. horror movie series.
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Final_Destination

  When Niko enters the club with Dimitri a patron greets him saying, "I took
care of that thing for you."  This refers to the scene in the 1990 movie "Good-
fellas" in which Henry Hill (Ray Liotta: the voice of Tommy Vercetti in "Vice
City") walks into a club naming and describing regulars and Pete the killer
points at him and says, "I took care of that thing for you."

  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Final_Destination

  Niko sits at a booth with Dimitri and Faustin.  Dimitri tells Faustin that
Sergai (Vlad's henchman) told him that a friend of Sergai's in the courts told
Sergai that the courts have authorized the police to tap their phones and know
about the pot they stole.  Dimitri thinks there's no informer--that they (nota-
bly Faustin) have been so visible it was inevitable.  But Faustin thinks Dimi-
tri's cousin's boyfriend Lenny, who bought their pot but didn't buy the coke,
informed on them.  Dimitri sharply disagrees: Lennie's a moron, but the problem
(Faustin's rashness) has been going on for months.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Sergei

  Faustin tells Niko to kill Lenny.  Niko asks if he's sure.  Faustin admits
he's not but demands obedience.  He sends Niko to kill Lenny at Guantanamo Ave.
in Bohan.

  Have Niko get full Health and Armor and drive to Lenny. 

  On the way, you can use the option of having Niko call Dimitri.  He's still
arguing with Faustin to change his mind and can't talk on the phone--he tells
Niko to do what he has to do.

  Niko calls Faustin to make sure Faustin wants him to kill Lenny.  Faustin
says he does and tells Niko that Lenny is on the platform of the Guantanamo
Ave. Station.  It's actually called Windmill Street Station--a pair of raised
platforms for the subway at Guantanamo Ave./Windmill St.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Windmill_Street_LTA

  Lenny is with a man who has a Micro SMG on the east end of the north plat-
form.

  If you have Niko climb either set of steps to shoot Lenny, Niko tells Lenny
that Faustin has turned against Lenny.  Lenny says Faustin isn't important, but
Niko says Faustin's important enough to get you killed.  Have Niko use a power-
ful gun to kill Lenny's friend then have Niko, careful about any passing
trains, chase Lenny across the tracks and down the south steps to kill him.
Niko can jump down the steps to go faster.

  Trying to talk Niko out of it Lenny may say that he's the son of crime leader
Kenny Petrovic.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Lenny_Petrovic

  Since Lenny always tries to escape via the south stairs, gta.wikia recommends
that you use Niko's vehicle to block the bottom of the stairs--even wedge it in
the bottom of the stairway.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Final_Destination

  If Niko doesn't kill Lennie on foot Niko has to kill Lennie while he tries to
escape in a Banshee.  The mission is over if he makes it home but he's not the
best driver.  (I had Niko snipe a rear tire while the Banshee ran into some-
thing and got stuck.  I kept sniping till it caught on fire and exploded.)

  A safe method is to have Niko go to the southeast corner of Guantanamo Ave./
Windmill St., go into the four story abandoned brick building, climb the stairs
to the roof, and give Lenny a headshot from there without activating him or his
armed guard.

  A safe method suggested by whatever57010 is to have Niko snipe Lenny from a
nearby billboard catwalk or roof.
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKoLR4DLO84

  He demonstrates having Niko do it from atop the "TUNE UPS BREAKS EMERGENCIES"
billboard that's on the west side of Beaumont Ave. north of Windmill St.  Have
Niko push the dumpster away from the base of the ladder first.  A headshot will
do if Niko doesn't have a Sniper Rifle.

  When I had Niko use these methods a Pistol was enough for a headshot--I let
it fire more than once to be sure.  The scope isn't as good on a Pistol so make
sure you're aiming at Lenny--he's the eastern of the two men and has a red
marker pointing down at his head.  It didn't activate Lenny's armed guard, ei-
ther, so you'd have an easy time having Niko line up a shot for him, too.

  Niko gets $500.

  Dimitri calls Niko and tells him that Lenny was the son of Kenny Petrovic--a
dangerous man.  Dimitri holds Faustin's craziness as responsible and will talk
to people and see what he can do.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Kenny_Petrovic

  Roman sends Niko a text message telling him to meet a friend at Roman's cab
depot.


  V.22  No Love Lost

  Send Niko (with full Health, Armor, and a lot of Combat Pistol or SMG ammo
and longer range weapon ammo) to Mikhail Faustin's mansion on the west side of
the south end of Shinnecock Ave.

  Faustin makes his wife cry angrily berating her similar to how he treats Di-
mitri.  Faustin's still drinking, snorting coke, and bursting into tantrums.
He blames her for his daughter getting "out of control" and blames her "biker
pimp boyfriend" for her "turning into a whore."  Faustin wants Niko to go to
Firefly Island, where she's meeting her boyfriend, and kill him.

  The bald man there is the wedding assassin from the Deal ending mission.  (He
looks like Agent 47--the protagonist of the "Hitman" series of games.)

  Have Niko go to the marker on the east side of the dead end road south of
Crockett Ave. east of Mohawk Ave.

  Anna Faustin and her biker boyfriend Jason are under a canopy on the south
side of the Beach Hotel.  (On the back it advertises "views of Arthur's Seat":
"Arthur's Seat" is the main peak of a group of hills in Edinburgh, Scotland,
where Rockstat North is based).
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur's_Seat

  She asks if she's the property of The Lost motorcycle gang now but he says
no--he wants her all to himself.  After Niko tells Jason to stay away from An-
na, Jason threatens to get his biker gang, The Lost, to kick Niko's a**, and
Jason drives away on his Zombie motorcycle--he goes north to Crockett Ave.
where he goes east.

  (Liberty City Minute tip: backblow's method is to have Niko run west to the
road, go north to Crockett Ave., and turn east to snipe Jason as he drives to
the east end of Crockett Ave.  Instead of using a phone code for a Sniper Rifle
you could save one from the Vigilante missions.)

  Have Niko use the PCJ-600 provided to chase him.  Avoid having Niko hit the
scripted obstructions such as the car that always pulls across traffic once the
chase has taken a few curves going north on the Broker-Dukes Expressway.  You
may be able to have Niko kill Jason by doing a persistent forward drive-by on
him with the Combat Pistol or SMG.  This would end the mission without the
shootout with Jason joined by three other bikers.

  The chase continues north on Tutelo Ave., east on Carson St., north on Still-
water Ave., east on Ellery St., north on Seymour Ave., east on Parr St., and
north on Cleves Ave.  Once Jason goes north past Carrollton St. there's a cut-
scene of him being joined by three members of The Lost who accompany him on
Zombies.

  Now Niko has to kill Jason and the three other motorcyclists.  Have Niko pur-
sue them with a forward drive by going east on Tudor St. then north on the dirt
road that's just east of the marking on the radar/maps on the north side of Tu-
dor St. east of Saratogo Ave.

  The chase ends with the bikers going east off the dirt road and disembarking
for a shootout by some trees near the expressway.  The bikers use Pistols and
Micro-SMG's and Jason uses a Pump Shotgun.  Have Niko use cover (Q) as needed
and shoot them with a long range weapon.  Make sure they're all dead and not
just lying down injured and you've passed the mission.

  (If Jason is dead you can have Niko leave without failing the mission and re-
turn to kill the other bikers which is useful to know if Niko needs Health, Ar-
mor, or ammo.)

  Niko calls Faustin and tells him the boyfriend is dead--Niko says he doesn't
know how happy the daughter will be.  Faustin says he doesn't care about happi-
ness--he just cares about discipline and loyalty.

  (Later, The Lost blame the Angels of Death for Jason's murder and burn down
their clubhouse and steal their heroin.  Billy Grey creates this gossip to
start a war between the gangs.)

  Niko gets $1,000.


  Roman Bellic's missions cont.

  V.23  Logging On

  Brucie Kibbutz: Timothy Adams

  Timothy played Casey Mitchum in 323 1997-1999 episodes of the TV series "Sunset
Beach," handsome Ron Walsh in five 2007 episodes of the ABC-TV soap opera "One
Life to Live," played a NY Post gossip reporter on the "MILF Island" 2008 episode
of the TV series "30 Rock," played Dr. Clayton in eight 2010 episodes of the TV
soap opera "All My Children," etc.  He also played a Random Saint (with a bit of
Brucie Kibbutz dialogue) in the 2011 game "Saints Row: The Third" and reprised
the role of Brucie Kibbutz for the 2013 game GTA "V."
  http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0011401/
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timothy_Adams_%28actor%29

  Send Niko to the taxi depot to see Roman, who introduces him to his friend
Brucie, who's an exercise nut, but could pass for a plain one if he didn't ex-
ercise.  Roman thinks Niko has a greater chance to find a good opportunity by
being on the Internet, so Roman sends him to the tw@ Internet cafe to sign up.

  Have Niko go to the tw@ Internet Cafe on the west side of Oneida Ave. just
north of Cisco St.  Have him talk to the woman at the desk, Alejandra, log onto
a computer, set up an e-mail account, and reply favorably to a message from
EyeFind Mail to activate his account.  You can send Niko outside to complete
the mission if you're going for a Liberty City Minute Achievement, or have him
surf the net (I.15).  If Niko hasn't been there before, an @ symbol will now
mark the spot on the radar/map.

  Niko gets along good with Alejandra but can't date her.  (Name of voice ac-
tress?)
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OK5eScTuqIU
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Alejandra

  Roman calls about Brucie's Exotic Export mission (V.28) and Niko has Brucie's
phone number.  Niko gets the "Order Fulfilled" Achievement.


  Little Jacob's missions cont.

  V.24  Shadow

  Have Niko go to the north side of Dillon St. at the first door west of Cayuga
Ave.

  Teafore Maxwell-Davies aka Real Badman aka Badman: Terry "Seeborn" Marshall

  Seeborn enters show biz pretty good in a GTA playing a local drug dealer
who'll have people killed to protect his turf.  Badman is thin with a black
Rastafarian beanie with a visor.  Jacob uses Iyaric, a Rastafarian dialect of
English, to translate Badman's Jamaican Patois for Niko.
  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Grand_Theft_Auto_IV_characters#Real_
Badman_2

  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iyaric
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamaican_Patois
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Seeborn
  http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3001382/

  Little Jacob wants Niko to do a favor for Badman--take care of some men
who're selling marijuana on Badman's turf without giving Badman a cut of the
profits.  Jacob makes a quick cutting motion and sound to indicate how he wants
Niko to deal with it.

  "Shadow" in this case means to follow someone closely and that's how the game
recommends you have Niko handle the first part of this favor.  Niko has to fol-
low, on foot, a dealer from an alley in Bohan to his suppliers.

  (Thanks to Robert Rusk for the tip that this is a mission with a limited
wanted rating exploit.  The police are less sensitive to Niko's use of firearms
and other crimes but can still get a wanted rating if he causes enough problems
quickly or in the right place.  So before you have Niko go to the dealer in
Bohan you may use this as a time to have him get the Flying Rats in the eastern
areas of the map.)

  Have Niko go to the west side of Wallkill Ave. just south of the alley north
of Switch St.  There's a cutscene of the dealer going east from the alley and
making a phone call to say he's out of product so "be ready."

  The dealer leads Niko east across the street, east then south through an al-
ley (have Niko ignore the call from Roman) to Switch St., south across Switch
St., south then east through an alley, south through an apartment building to
Hollowback Rd., south across Hollowback Rd. to climb over the fence of an al-
ley, south through half the alley and over a break in a stone wall then east
through a grey-red door into an apartment building, and up the stairs to the
sixth floor.  Have him go to the west end, go south through an archway, and to
the second and darker door of two--the apartment of the dealer and his two sup-
pliers.

  Niko has to kill the three of them who are armed and fire back.

  (Liberty City Minute tip: Niko doesn't have to use stealth when following--if
he doesn't, the chase is faster and Niko has to shoot the apartment door handle
but the men in it are ready for a shoot out all the same.)

  You can have Niko use the doorway for cover, try a cooked Grenade on the men,
and shoot as needed.

  Niko gets $250.

  Niko calls Jacob who congratulates him on making the corner Jacob's (not Bad-
man's?) again.

  Little Jacob calls Niko with a work offer: Delivery missions, V.26, are
available.


  V.25  Friends--Little Jacob

  After "Shadow" (V.24), Little Jacob calls for a friend activity and Niko can
call Little Jacob from 1:00 pm to 4:00 am.
  http://www.gta4.net/friends-and-girlfriends/
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Little_Jacob

  See section V.6  Friends.

  Niko has to do all six activities listed below in a way Little Jacob likes,
which for pool and darts means to beat Jacob at them, for 100% completion of
the game.

  Preferred activities: darts (have Niko win), pool (have Niko win), eating
(he prefers Cluckin' Bell and secondly other fast food),  Cabaret (Perestroi-
ka), strip club, and drinking (he favors Club Liberty nightclub at Wardite St./
Galveston Ave., but it's in Algonquin)

  Special ability: at a 75% Like stat, Niko can call Little Jacob, choose
"Guns," and Little Jacob will to drive to a nearby location for Niko to meet
him.  Jacob's car trunk has weapons that Niko can buy.  Unlike a Gun Store he
doesn't sell Armor, the Baseball bat, Pistol, Sniper rifle, or RPG, but he does
sell most of the same weapons, he sells the Knife, and his prices are lower than
those of a Gun Store (see section II.2).

  Knife                               $100
  Pistol
      (Glock 17)                   $420 + $25 for each added magazine
  Combat shotgun
      (Remington 11-87)  $1,500 + $100 for 10 shells
  Micro SMG
      (Micro Uzi)                  $840 + $20 for each added magazine
  SMG
      (S&W MP10)           $1,750 + $20 for each added magazine
  Assault Rifle
      (AK-47)                    $2,450 + $55 for each added magazine
  Carbine Rifle
      (M4A1)                     $3,500 + $70 for each added magazine
  Combat Sniper
      (PSG-1)                   $5,000 + $500 for each added magazine
  Molotov cocktails            $350 apiece
  Grenades                        $700 apiece

  The special ability won't be offered if the Like stat falls below 30%.  If
you don't want to share an activity but don't want the Like stat to drop accept
his offer then call back and cancel it.

  (Liberty City Minute tip: do two of his favorite activities before doing the
one he asked for.)

  After Elizabeta calls Niko to get to her place Niko can't have friend activi-
ties with Jacob till after "The Snow Storm."

  Having Little Jacob's Like stat over 90% gives Niko the "Retail Therapy"
Achievement and goes toward the Liberty City (5) Achievement.


  V.26  Delivery missions

  Little Jacob's drug Delivery missions are available.  He calls Niko offering
the work after "Shadow" (V.24).

  Have Niko, far from the Homebrew Cafe, call Jacob during the day after 10 am
and select "Job."  It may help Niko receive work to be some distance from both
his last delivery location and the cafe.

  Jacob will tell Niko to go to the Homebrew Cafe for drugs to deliver.  Have
Niko go to the alley entrance on the west side of the Broker-Dukes Expressway
at the south side of the cafe in a fast vehicle with full Health and Armor and
a lot of your favorite shootout ammo (SMG, rifle, etc.).  Have him enter the
rusty car to get the drugs to deliver then get back in the fast vehicle to de-
liver them.

  There are three types of Delivery missions:

  1. Timed  Niko has about 30 in-game minutes--about one minute in real time--
to make the delivery or the buyer won't buy.

  Thanks to Robert Rusk reader O odino for this tip.  The amount given on the
timer may be rounded up or down.  "If you enter the car at 1:07 for example,
the game will say you need to deliver by 1:30 which just about gives you 20
minutes."  To get the surplus time "...enter the car at 1:11-1:13 and it will
say deliver by 1:45 which gives you MORE than 30 minutes."

  You might pause the game to check the map in case there's a more direct route
than suggested by the GPS.  A fast motorcycle is better for some shortcuts.  A
Taxi ride may be available which can take Niko right to the waypoint.

  2. Stash   Niko has to deliver the drugs to a safe location but he's ambushed
by armed gang members (the Algonquin Triads or Albanian Mafia) who fire at him.
As far as I know they have Pistols unless otherwise indicated.  Have Niko kill
them.

  3. Deal  Niko meets with the buyers (the Irish mob) but the police arrest
them and Niko has to get rid of a two star wanted rating.

  The missions may appear in a different order than the order they're given in
below.
  http://en.wikigta.org/wiki/Drug_Delivery


  V.26.a  Cerveza Heights car stack   The marker is by a dumpster at the side
of a building at the east end of the alley on the east side of Inchon Ave.
north of Huntington St.

  Stash  There are two that enter the alley in a car, one on a roof on the
north side of the alley entrance (one of these three has a shotgun), and two on
the roof just east of the dumpster.

  You can have Niko go by the eastern building wall for cover from the two
above to the east to get the western three then move from the building enuough
to get the heads of the other two.  One of those two may jump to the scaffold-
ing to the north.

  V.26.b  Meadow Hills  The marker is by a pair of garbage cans on the north
side of the east-west alley on the east side of Stillwater Ave. south of Aragon
St.

  Stash
  One gangster comes from the alley to the south.
  Two gangsters get out of a car that comes from the western part of Niko's
alley.
  Two gangsters come from the eastern part of Niko's alley.

  Have Niko kill the one from the southern alley and the two from the car
from the west first.

  V.26.c  Meadow Park  The marker is at the northeast corner of a church in a
lot on the west side of Savannah Ave. north of Hancock St.

  Stash   Two gangsters come from the northwest corner of the church and two,
one of whom has a shotgun, come from the southeast corner.  Have Niko kill the
one who has a shotgun first.

  V.26.d  Willis  The marker is just south of the intersection of alleys west
of Saratoga Ave. north of Ellery St. (where Niko killed the runners earlier for
Jacob).

  Deal  Have Niko drive out of the two star wanted rating zone.

  V.26.e  Meadow Park Festival Towers  The marker is by the tower--the smaller
round spot of two on the radar/maps--of the Liberty State Pavilion Towers in
Meadows Park.

  Deal  Have Niko drive out of the two star wanted rating zone.

  V.26.f  East Island City Tunnel  The marker is in the pedestrian tunnel with
the southern entrance by the curve south of the east end of the East Borough
Bridge and the northern entrance under the bridge.

  Timed  45-50 in-game min.

  Thanks to Robert Rusk for recommending that you have Niko drive north and use
the stunt jump to get onto the Algonquin-Dukes Expressway, go west till near
Dukes Blvd./Stone St and turn left onto the old railroad tracks.  Use the stunt
jump to get into Dukes Park then go north and into the tunnel.

  V.26.g  Schottler  The marker is in an alley under the Algonquin-Dukes Ex-
pressway east of Montauk Ave.

  Timed  30 in-game min.

  V.26.h  Beechwood City  The marker is in the garage of the abandoned Auto Re-
pair shop on the north side of the Broker-Dukes Expressway at the east side of
Carson St.

  Timed  30 in-game min.

  V.26.i  Outlook Park   The marker is by a garbage can under the little pedes-
trian bridge west of the circular road around Soldiers Plaza.

  Stash  Four gang members appear--one from each of the four side of the two
tunnel entrances.  Have Niko kill the one at the southwest side first because
he has a shotgun then kill the one at the southeast side.

  V.26.j  Steinway projects  The marker is east of the north end of Yorktown
Ave. in the northeast area of the lot of the apartment tower.

  Timed  50-60 in-game min.

  Jacob gives Niko a Huntley Sport with a custom grille and exhaust and the
colors of the Jamaican flag--green, black, and yellow--for the last mission.
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_Jamaica

  Each delivery pays $250, adds 1% to Jacob's Like, and adds 3% to Jacob's Re-
spect.

  Completing the deliveries earns the "Courier Service" Achievement.

  Completing all 10 deliveries adds 2% toward 100% completion of the game.


  V.27  Random Characters--Badman

  Teafore Maxwell-Davies aka Real Badman aka Badman  Terry "Seeborn" Marshall
supplies the voice of Badman who speaks in Jamaican Patois.  Badman is the tem-
peramental leader of the Yardies and Little Jacob's boss and friend.
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamaican_Patois
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Seeborn
  http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3001382/

  After "Shadow" (V.24) have Niko meet Badman who's on a bench by the Pill
Pharm on the west side of Dukes Blvd. south of Morris St. in Dukes.  Badman
tells Niko Russian gangsters have been making him pay debts (invading his ter-
ritory and making him pay protection, I guess).  Niko suggests they go get them
and Badman raises his pump action shotgun and agrees.

  Have Niko drive Badman to the alley on the south side of Carrollton St. west
of Saratoga Ave. where the Russian gangsters are making a deal.  Have Niko use
a corner of a wall for cover and shoot south to kill the five thugs.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Real_Badman

  Niko gets $500.

  This contributes to 100% completion of the game and earns the "No More
Strangers" Achievement.


  V.28  Brucie's Exotic Exports car theft missions

  This is available after "Logging On" (V.23).

  Have Niko go to a computer he can use.  The first one legally available is at
the tw@ Internet Cafe on the west side of Oneida Ave. north of Cisco St., Brok-
er.  Have him open Email from Brucie Kibbutz with an attachment that says "Exot-
ic Export (car name)."  You can click to view a picture of the vehicle.  Click
to reply positively to start the mission.

  Have Niko get the vehicle and drive it into Brucie's Executive Lifestyle
Autos garage in East Hook on the east side of Mohanet Ave. east of the first
intersection north of Mohanet Ave. and Cisco St.  The ten vehicles to acquire
for Brucie:

  Banshee
  Cavalcade with black rims
  Feltzer
  Intruder
  NRG900
  Patriot
  PCJ600
  PMP600
  Sabre GT
  Sanchez

  The maximum reward is $1,000 per and $800 per motorcycle--less with damage.
You can use a Pay 'n' Spray to repair damage.  Each delivery increases Brucie's
Like stat 1% and Respect stat 3%.  (Thanks to Robert Rusk reader fleetstdemon
for the tip that it may be possible to increase the reward by delivering the
vehicle with a wanted rating.)

  A video by GTA Series videos reports a glitch whereby a damaged vehicle which
can still be driven may bring a 35% bonus of up to $350 more instead of less.
The game still tells you to fix the vehicle before delivering it so many play-
ers don't notice the glitch.  The video says it holds true for all versions of
the game as far as they know.
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GhLASHXa9-U

  The vehicles appear at random in these 10 situations:

  Meadows Park

  The vehicle is driven around the Meadows Park/Meadows Hills area.  Have Niko
park in front of the vehicle to stop it then aim a gun at the driver, or fire a
warning shot, or hit the motorcyclist with a bat--if no police are nearby--to
get the driver to run away.  Have Niko drive it into the lockup.

  South Slopes

  The vehicle is driven around the South Slopes area.  Have Niko park in front
of the vehicle to stop it then aim a gun at the driver, or fire a warning shot,
or hit the motorcyclist with a bat--if no police are nearby--to get the driver
to run away.  Have Niko drive it into the lockup.

  BOABO

  The vehicle is parked by a Mule truck on the west side of the street that's
parallel to and west of Montauk Ave. in BOABO.  (The section of road is just
south of the biggest rectangular projection of coast in BOABO south of the east
end of the Algonquin Bridge.)

  It's guarded by three goons with a Knife and Baseball bat and a guy in a
suit.  If you have Niko go near the vehicle the goons approach him.  If any of
them are attacked, or the Cavalcade is damaged, the guy in the suit and one of
the goons get in the Cavalcade and drive off while the other two goons stay and
attack Niko.  If all the goons are killed, their boss will flee without the
Cavalcade.  If you have Niko run to the Cavalcade and get in quickly enough he
may be able to drive off without fighting with the goons.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Exotic_Exports

  You may be able to have have Niko run over and drive by them all then take
the vehicle.

  Have him drive it to the lockup.

  Beechwood City

  The vehicle is at the car wash on the east side of Tutelo Ave. north of the
Homebrew Cafe.  Two employees will attack Niko.  If having him target them with
a gun doesn't cause them to to run away you may need to have him shoot them.
Have Niko drive it to the lockup.

  Chase Point

  The vehicle is parked on the west side of Guantanamo Ave. just south of Wind-
mill St. in Chase point.  The driver is talking to a prostitute who's standing
by the driver's window.  You might get away with having Niko jack the vehicle
but if the driver is only harmed he'll try to drive the vehicle away, if
knocked off a 'cycle he'll attack with a Pistol, and if not killed he'll jack
another vehicle and chase Niko.  You may as well have Niko drive-by him, pre-
ferably if no police are around, then drive the vehicle to the lockup.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Exotic_Exports

  Cerveza Heights

  The vehicle is at a car park in the alley on the east side of Inchon St.
north of Huntington St. but drives from the car park as Niko approaches it.
Have Niko park in front of the vehicle to stop it then aim a gun at the driver,
or fire a warning shot, or hit the motorcyclist with a bat--if no police are
nearby--to get the driver to run away.  Have Niko drive it into the lockup.

  Meadow Hills

  The vehicle is near Station Square on the south side of Ellery St. east of
Seymour Ave.  Have Niko wait till a couple of policemen walk far enough away
(and preferably no others are around--the area is heavily patrolled) then have
him break the driver side window, wait till the alarm stops, and drive the ve-
hicle to the lockup.

  Outlook

  The driver of the vehicle is being frisked near a police car by the east side
of Outlook Park on the west side of Montauk Ave. west of the west end of Hick-
cock St.  You may have Niko get away with blocking the police with his vehicle
to jack the suspect's vehicle and get a two star wanted level or you may need
to have Niko shoot the police and get a higher wanted level.  If so, there's a
Pay 'n' Spray to the south on the south side of Gibson St. west of Montauk Ave.
If Niko has no wanted rating have him drive the vehicle to the lockup.

  Firefly Projects

  This vehicle is on the west side of Mohegan Ave. north of Ringo St. guarded
by three hustlers who attack with a Baseball bat and Pistols.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Hustlers

  Have Niko drive over them and drive-by them as needed.  If you don't have him
act quickly one may try to drive away with it or try to jack Niko from it and
attacking them may attract other hustlers.  He may need to get rid of a wanted
rating (there's a Pay 'n' Spray on the south side of Gibson St.) before driving
the vehicle to the lockup.

  Schottler

  The vehicle has two armed thugs by it in an alley on the north side of Earp
St. east of Tuscarora Ave.  If Niko draws a weapon they attack with Micro-SMGs.
Have Niko drive-by them, or use a nearby dumpster for cover and shoot them on
foot, use a Pay 'n' Spray as needed, then drive the vehicle to the lockup.

  GTA0wns' video at the next link shows how you can have Niko enter Brucie's
garage on foot to explore it.  Have Niko park a vehicle to deliver under the
door of the garage a bit--not enough for the game to count it as delivered.
One item inside is a "San Andreas" Remington.
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibkCcX4Ja90&gl=HK&hl=zh-HK

  Having Niko deliver all ten cars and motorcycles contributes 2% toward 100%
completion and gives Niko the "Order Fulfilled" Achievement.


  Mikhail Faustin's missions cont.

  V.29  Rigged to Blow

  Ileyna Faustin: Marcy McGuigan (as "Marcy Maguigan")
    (GTW note to Rockstar North: it ain't bad enough she plays an abused wo-
        man-you misspelled her name?  Isn't "Mc" a Scotch-Irish surname prefix?
        You people are based in Edinburgh--how did you blow that?  Did you e'er
        hear Paul McCartney referred to as "Mag"?  You go back and fix it.)
        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Family_name#Ireland.2C_Isle_of_Man.2C_and_Scotland

  Marcy played Aemilia in the Colorado Shakespeare Festival presentation of
"Othello," and Dorothy Brock in a national tour of "42nd Street,"  played Mrs.
MacDuffie and Sister Walburga in NYC at The SoHo Playhouse in The Divine Sis-
ter," 2010-2011, played Dr. Ryan in a 1997 episode of the TV series "Ghost
Stories," was in an "Annie Get Your Gun" skit in a 2000 episode of the TV series
"Late Night with Conan O'Brien," played the Awards Presenter in a 2014 episode of

  http://www.abouttheartists.com/artists/318504-marcy-mcguigan
  http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3009426/

  This mission has the same title as a GTA "III" mission in which you have
Claude drive a car fitted with explosives and have him avoid blowing it up.
The objective of the "III" mission "Blow Fish" is more like that of this one.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Rigged_to_Blow_%28GTA_III%29
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Blow_Fish

  Have Niko go to Faustin's mansion on the west side of the south end of Shin-
necock Ave.

  Ileyna Faustin tells Niko how bad Mikhail has been in the recent years of
their marriage.  She wonders why or if she should blame herself.  Niko says
the war changed him to think nothing of doing bad things.  "I killed people,
smuggled people, sold people"--"after you walk into a village and you see fif-
ty children, all sitting neatly in a row against the church wall, each with
their throats cut and their hands chopped off, you realize that the creature
that could do this doesn't have a soul."  She tells him, "God is very compli-
cated.  You mustn't give up hope." 

  Mikhail and Dimitri enter.  Mikhail throws a tantrum that scares her out cry-
ing and orders Dimitri, ever trying to calm him down to no effect, out of the
room.  Mikhail wants Niko to teach people to listen to Mikhail.  He tells Niko
to deliver a truck to someone who owes Mikhail money--to go to the truck and
call when he gets there.

  This mission is similar to the GTA "III" mission "Blow Fish."  Have Niko get
into the truck on the east side of Montauk Ave. by the northeast offramp of the
Algonquin-Dukes Expressway.  Niko calls Mikhail and learns the truck is filled
with volatile explosives so he better drive carefully.

  Have Niko drive to the waypoint on the map--a garage on the north side of
Hollowback St. east of Joliet Ave.   The truck will suffer a few bumps with no
need to worry.  But if it's damaged badly enough a beeper beeps and the green
light on the back of the truck flashes and they do it faster as damage in-
creases until at a maximum degree the truck explodes.

  Have Niko park the truck in the garage.  The game instructs you to have Niko
trigger the bomb (LMB) but you can just have him park it and run--possibly
shooting the truck a bit first.  A cutscene shows Niko run from the garage
which blows up with the biggest explosion of the game.

  The garage owner nearby makes a phone call to Kenny Petrovic, the man whose
son Lenny was killed by Niko at Faustin's order in "Final Destination" (V.21),
to report that the destruction of his business wasn't an accident.  Have Niko
run from the area--he'll probably with a one or two star wanted level if you
have him listen to the phone call.  If you have him wait around that long you
might hear the police announce "a possible terrorist attack at Chase Point."

  Niko gets $700.

  Roman calls.  Brucie has work for Niko--Brucie's missions are available
(V.36).

  Dimitri sends Niko a text message telling Niko to meet Dimitri on Firefly Is-
land--Dimitri's missions are available (V.30).

  Weazel News online reports the explosion at the garage as due to terrorists.


  Dimitri Rascalov's missions

  V.30  The Master and the Molotov

  The title refers to "The Master and the Margarita" by Mikhail Bulgakov and to
the fact that Molotovs become available at Gun Shops after the mission.
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Master_and_Margarita
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/The_Master_and_the_Molotov

  Niko receives a text message from Dimitri saying they must talk on the Fire-
fly Island boardwalk.  Send Niko south of Mohawk Ave. to meet him.

  Dimitri tells Niko to kill Faustin to appease Kenny Petrovic about Faustin
hiring Niko to kill Petrovic's son Lenny.  Niko will be spared if he's the one
that kills Faustin.  Dimitri says, "We can pick the game, Niko Bellic, but we
cannot change the rules."

  Have Niko go to Faustin's Perestroika club on the north side of Tulsa St.
east of Mohawk Ave.  Faustin enters it with a couple of his men.

  If Niko doesn't have full Armor he gets a text message from Dimitri saying
he left Niko some protection around the corner.  If so, there's Armor at the
east side of the club by the south corner which Niko may use any time during
the mission even if he doesn't read the message.  If he gets the message but
doesn't read it the Armor will be invisible but there.  Have Niko enter the
club.

  (Liberty City Minute tip: have Niko go to the southwest corner of the lobby,
shoot northeast to open the doors to the theater, and shoot Mikhail with what-
ever strong weapon.  Thanks to whatever57010)
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WHNY9PgzzMA

  Niko encounters Faustin who, from behind two of his guards, asks if he and
Dimitri want to take over from him.  Niko says Faustin pushed things too far
and didn't give Dimitri a choice.  Faustin says Dimitri was his brother for
life and now betrays him.  Faustin has his guards attack Niko.

  Have Niko shoot the two men in front of him.  Have him turn and shoot the
two men shooting from the far end of the room--one by the edge of the stage who
moves onto it and one who uses the middle of the bar as cover.  When Faustin is
done accusing Niko from the far end of the bar he begins firing with a Micro-
SMG.

  Have Niko shoot Faustin, or just run toward him, and Faustin runs through the
door at the back of the main club area.  Have Niko chase him.  Have Niko shoot
the guard who's just behind the door, one in the middle of the west-east hall,
and one by the stairs at the east end of the hall.  Have him run up the stairs
and through the door.

  Have Niko shoot the two guards firing from the east side of the north-south
alley--each using a garbage dumpster for cover.  Faustin shouts accusations
from the fire escape walk above the south end of the alley.  Have Niko go up
the fire escape, shooting while chasing Faustin who goes west to stand on the
south edge of the high roof east of the lower roof that's above the marguee and
drops his Micro-SMG.

  On the way, Faustin shouts to Niko that "Dimitri will turn on you as well"
which is shown true in the next mission.

  (Liberty City Minute tip: you can have Niko kill Faustin with a Grenade or by
shooting at him as he goes up the fire escape to the roof.  He'll pause at
times to fire back with his Micro-SMG.)
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/The_Master_and_the_Molotov

  Faustin accuses Dimitri and Niko of betraying him.  You can have Niko use any
weapon to kill Faustin.  (If you have Niko punch him he fires a Pistol.)  To
have Niko perform an execution equip him with a Pistol, target Faustin, and
when the reticle changes have Niko shoot him which knocks him down to the
street.

  This is the second mission in which Niko can perform an execution of someone
(the first was "Uncle Vlad," V.17).

  Niko calls Dimitri who congratulates Niko and says he hopes this means there
will be peace with Petrovic.

  Molotovs are available from Gun Stores for $500.

  The Turismo will continue to spawn in Faustin's driveway on the west side of
the south end of Shinneoock Ave., Beachgate.

  You have a choice of having Niko call Dimitri (if you're ready for the next
mission) or waiting for Dimitri to call.  Dimitri's message is that he wants
Niko, unaccompanied, to come for his payment at a warehouse on Monhanet Ave. in
Broker.  While you send Niko there, Little Jacob calls and tells Niko the meeting
will be dangerous.  Little Jacob says he'll meet Niko there.

  V.31  Russian Revolution

  The title refers to the Russian Revolution of 1917.
  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_Revolution

  Rodislav "Ray" Bulgarin: Vitali Baganov

  Vitali Baganov played Russian mobster Valery in two of the more memorable epi-
sodes of the TV show "The Sopranos," both from 2001--"Pine Barrens" and "...To
Save Us All from Satan's Power."  In movies he's been in "Sherlock Holmes and
Doctor Watson: The Bloody Inscription," 1979.  He reprised the role of Bugarin
for TBoGT.
  http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0046518
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pine_Barrens_%28The_Sopranos_episode%29
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitali_Baganov

  Niko has a choice of calling Dimitri (if you're ready for the mission) or
waiting for him to call.  Either way, Niko asks if Dimitri has the payment for
his last mission.  Dimitri says he does and tells Niko to meet him at the ware-
house on Monhanet Ave. in downtown Broker--"come alone."  A bit later Little
Jacob calls and tells Niko the meeting will be dangerous so he'll meet Niko
there.
  http://www.gamefaqs.com/xbox360/933037-grand-theft-auto-iv/faqs/53734

  Send Niko to the warehouse--the marker at the south end of the west side of
the rectangle just north of the dead end road that's on the west side of Mohan-
et Ave.  It's south of the two rectangular projections of coast south of the
east end of the Algonquin Bridge.

  Niko meets Little Jacob at the big warehouse entrance.  Niko has Jacob stand
watch by it and takes a few steps inside.  Dimitri says he has the payment and
just wants to check something with him--he motions for Niko to come further in-
side the warehouse.

  Dimitri asks if Niko used to work the coast of the Mediterranean smuggling
people into Italy, then, assuming it's true, accuses Niko of leaving a big debt
to a good friend of his who appears at Dimitri's side.  Niko greets Bulgarin--
the man who falsely accused Niko of owing him money whom Niko told Roman about
in "Bleed Out" (V.4).  A guard appears at the big warehouse door.  Niko says he
doesn't know what happened to the money--he didn't steal it--as the warehouse
door starts to slide down.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Ray_Bulgarin

  Bulgarin doesn't believe Niko but Niko says the boat used for human smuggling
was busted a mile from coast leaving Niko no choice but to swim to safety.  But
Bulgarin wants Niko to be killed in revenge--the guard grabs Niko around the
neck from behind and Niko knocks him away.  Little Jacob enters to defend Niko
as the warehouse door slides down to close.

  Have Niko, crouching for cover behind a pile of girders, help Jacob take out
Bulgarin's men while Bulgarin and Dimitri wait (with God mode) on the east side
of the warehouse.  If Jacob dies, Niko fails the mission.  There's Armor by a
big horizontal container tank just ahead of him and Health on the wall in the
room ahead and to the right.

  The game explains that Niko can use blind fire by firing (LMB) from behind
cover without targeting (RMB) but the fire is more accurate with targeting.
Use the scroll wheel to zoom.  While Niko uses cover you can move him with A
and D.  Sustained fire causes recoil and bullet spread indicated by the widen-
ing of the reticle.

  Have Niko basically follow Jacob in moving forward through the warehouse as
each batch of attackers, about a dozen in all, are eliminated.  Niko can take
cover behind the support columns at the sides of the warehouse and the big hor-
izontal container tanks and horizontal piles of girders in the middle of the
floor.

  Approximate order of events:

  "GTA 4 - Mission #24 - Russian Revolution (1080p)" by GTA Series Videos
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6P4F269G-w0

  Have Niko use cover and an SMG or your favorite shootout weapon on the at-
tackers running and taking cover ahead and one on a second level on the left.

  Have Niko move ahead to take cover behind the second horizontal cylindrical
tank ahead and shoot the attackers running and taking cover ahead, one on
the second level on the right, and one in a mainly windowed area on the second
level on the left.

  Have Niko move ahead to take cover behind the next horizontal cylindrical
tank ahead and shoot the attackers running and taking cover ahead and one in a
windowed area on the second level on the right.

  Dimitri and Bulgarin escape and the police appear at the east end of the
warehouse as Niko approaches it.  Niko has a two star wanted rating.

  You might have Niko use the Armor just ahead of the starting point and col-
lect weapons as needed.  As you have Niko go toward the back door, the last at-
tacker appears above it on a third level of the warehouse--have Niko shoot him.

  Have Niko use the back warehouse doorway for cover while clearing the police
out from the nearby area outside, shoot any more police as needed as leaving
(to keep the wanted level from rising higher don't have Niko shoot them after
Jacob says "But not till we lose Babylon car, sight?  Yo, find me a car....",
go right, get into Jacob's car, let Jacob enter it, and drive through the Navy
Yard and beyond to get rid of his wanted rating.

  Have Niko take Little Jacob back to the Homebrew Cafe.  On the way, Niko says
he wishes he'd killed Bulgarin a long time ago, promises to take Dimitri down,
and thanks Little Jacob.

  Jacob says he needs to "black up"--patois for "smoke weed."

  Niko can call Roman or Roman will call Niko.  If you're ready to have Niko do
the next mission, have him call Roman who's in an alley off Hooper St. in East
Island City.


  Roman Bellic's missions cont.

  V.32  Roman's Sorrow

  Have Niko go to the alley on the north side of the western part of Hooper St.
(gta.wikia.com says it's the southern stretch of Franklin St.).
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Franklin_Street 

  Niko finds Roman hiding in the trunk of his taxi after he got some calls from
people who just hung up without saying anything.  Niko says Dimitri has become
a threat and Bulgarin, whom Roman remembers, is here now.  Roman suggests that
they lay low in his apartment.

  Have Niko drive Roman to his apartment.  On the way, Roman calls Mallorie and
gets her to agree to get a cousin of her's to provide a place for him and Niko
to stay in Bohan.  Roman tells Niko he had a dream where they owned a tavern,
Roman married Mallorie, and Niko found the right woman.

  Niko and Roman find Roman's place is on fire.  (Niko can still save vehicles
with the parking space.)  The engagement ring Roman was going to give Mallorie
has been lost in the fire.

  Have Niko drive Roman to the cab depot and they find that it's on fire, too.

  Have Niko drive Roman to Malorie's cousin's place in Bohan.  During the ride
Roman gets upset about how much Niko has ruined his life (which reminds me of
how Alan Arkin's character Sheldon complained about Peter Falk's character
Vince in "The In-Laws," 1979), that the engagement ring Roman bought for Mal-
lorie has been destroyed, etc.
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_In-Laws_%281979_film%29

  At Mallorie's cousin's place, Mallorie says she knows some people who can
help, tells Niko to see her at the Community Center, and leaves.  Niko agrees
with Roman that they need to start again.  Niko leaves.
 
  Niko has another save place with a parking space.  The wall clock in the
apartment shows the game time.

  Niko gets the "Lowest Point" Achievement and can't do the taxi mission any-
more and can't get free taxi rides till after "Blow Your Cover."

  Dimitri calls--he threatens to find Niko and Roman and kill them.  Brucie
calls saying Roman is gambling more.  Jacob texts warning Niko to stay low.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Roman%27s_Sorrow

  Weazel News reports that Russian gangsters started the fires with Molotovs.
It's also reported on libertytreeonline.

  An "M" appears in Bohan on the map and radar.


  Manny Escuela's missions

  V.33  Escuela of the Streets

  Manny Escuela: Berto Colon

  Berto added voices to the 2005 Rockstar game "The Warriors," played Dean in two
2008 episodes of "All My Children," Sgt. Hopper in two 2008 episodes of "As the
World Turns," Santa #2 in two 2007 episodes and the Hit Man in two 2008 episodes
of "One Life to Live," supplied various voices for the 2010 Rockstar game "Red
Dead Redemption," played a Guard in a 2015 episode of the TV series "The Black-
list," Cesar in eight 2013-2015 episodes of the TV series "Orange Is the New
Black," etc.
  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Grand_Theft_Auto_IV_characters#Manny_
Escuela

  http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2088745/
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Berto_Colon

  "Escuela" is Spanish for "school."

  Mallorie introduces Niko to Manny who's making a hip-hop music video.  (How
is it Niko doesn't understand Manny's slang but understood Jacob?)  Manny of-
fers Niko money to take out some neighborhood dealers to clean up the streets
(which sounds like a mission for C.J. in "San Andreas"), which is okay with
Niko if he isn't filmed.

  Have Niko take Manny (you can't have Niko use a helicopter or Bus) to the
dealer's place on the south side of Grand Blvd. east of Folsom Way and park
behind the dealer's Stallion that has a unique black color.

  On the way Manny says he wants to be a philanthropist "like one of them rich
guys who makes computers and cures AIDS" which is a reference to Bill Gates.

  The dealer drives off.  Have Niko tail the dealer (the red blip on the radar)
from about several car lengths to half a block away to the Sprunk warehouse on
the east side of Attica Ave. north of Hollowback St.  Unlike "Shadow" Niko can
spook the dealer and fail the mission.  Manny will warn Niko if he gets too
close or honks the horn.  Niko can fail the mission by honking the horn too
much or uses an Ambulance siren.

  Niko has to kill the eight men, the dealer and his gang, who are in the ware-
house.  If you have Niko try the door, he finds that it's locked.  Manny sends
Niko a text message saying that a window opens for every door that closes.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Escuela_of_the_Streets

  There are several ways to have Niko handle this.  Niko can risk getting a one
star wanted level by shooting the doorknob, or shooting the glass from one of
the two windows to the left of it, to enter the warehouse.  He won't get a
wanted rsting by punching the door open.  If he goes through the door, have him
take cover by the door or boxes right away because he'll walk into the fire of
the men who are concentrated in one area then rapidly spread out across the
warehouse as Niko fires.  If he enters the window to the left of the door and
enters an office, the fight can start at the door of the office.

  A safer way is to have Niko leave the front door alone, go to the alley south
of the warehouse and climb the fire escape stairs to the roof, walk north over
planks to the roof of the warehouse, shoot some of the men through an open
skylight window, then drop into the warehouse to get the rest.

  If you use the last method, Niko can use the SMG pickup on the roof.  He can
drop into the warehouse to shoot the last couple of guys (getting the one by
the Sprunk dispenser right away).  Thanks to Robert Rusk for recommending that
the safest way to have Niko get the last two men is by having Niko enter
through the window left of the front door and shoot from the office.

  The office has a First Aid Kit, there's a Sprunk machine in the warehouse
that gives 50% Health per drink, and there are a lot of ammo pickups left be-
hind.

  If Niko didn't shoot the doorknob of the front door to get in, have him shoot it
it to get out and meet Manny and his cameraman.  Manny's still so concerned to
have himself filmed taking credit for the street killing that he can't seem to
understand that Niko doesn't want filmed evidence of his involvement with it.

  "GTA IV - Escuela of the Streets (All Possibilities)" by whatever57010

  Niko gets $1,000.


  V.34  Random Characters--Mel

  Mel: Larry Fleishman  Larry was also in the 2002 short "The Evidence."
  http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3009405/
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Mel_%28GTA_IV%29

  Mel had a cameo at the start of "Bull in a China Shop" (V.10) and a couple
other scenes in Comrades bar.  Mel appears as a Random Character after "Escuela
of the Streets" (V.33).

  Have Niko go to the west side of Mohawk Ave. north of Masterson St. to find
Mel.  Mel has quit alcohol, etc., but owes some people money from his drinking
days.  He wants Niko to protect him as he goes to a loan shark in an alley at
the east side of Montauk Ave. north of Hickcock St. to pay off his debt.  Since
Mel also ruined the loan shark's apartment and got him evicted, the loan shark
and two others attack with Pistols.  Have Niko kill the three attackers then
drive Mel back to Mohawk Ave.

  Niko gets $500.

  Having this encounter contributes to 100% completion of the game and the "No
More Strangers" Achievement.


  V.35  Street Sweeper

  Have Niko go to the West Bohan Community Center on the west side of San Quen-
tin Ave. north of Hollowback St.  Manny is making another video of his (self
professed) importance in improving the streets of his neighborhood--this time
with an awkward cameo by police officer McReary.  After Francis McReary leaves,
Niko orders the cameraman to stop while he talks with Manny.  Manny tells Niko
to kill a South Bohan gang on Windmill St. that "disrespected the codes of the
streets."

  Have Niko go to the armed gang at a garage with two open doors on the north
side of Windmill St. east of Attica Ave.  If Niko doesn't have a weapon he's
given a Pistol with 20 bullets.  One way to fail the mission is to let some
gang members drive away in the red car facing the street in the eastern garage
doorway, so I'd recommend your first order of business be to have Niko kill the
driver of it.  It won't be driven away once that's done.
  "GTA IV - Street Sweeper (All Possibilities)" by whatever57010
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hu7Br3GOeeA

  If the car is driven away your first order of business is to have Niko chase
and kill the occupants, but it's easy to keep it from being driven away.

  The mission is meant to teach how to do a drive-by but you can have Niko use
whatever method you want.  There are only a few gang members besides the driv-
er and you pass the mission once you have Niko kill all of them.

  Thanks to Robert Rusk for the strategy that you can have Niko get on the roof
of the Sprunk warehouse to the south, as in V.33, and go to the north side of
the roof to shoot the driver of the red gang car then take out the attackers
from a safe vantage point.

  "GTA 4 - Mission #29 - Street Sweeper (1080p)" by GTA Series Videos
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DMnHVSo4itc

  To pass "Street Sweeper" without having Niko fire a shot you could have him
use a police vehicle that lets you use the computer, drive to ram the front of
the red car to turn it so it can't drive away, jack the driver, then go some-
where nearby but safe to use the computer and pick "Call Police Backup," and
let the police handle it.  It takes longer, though.
  "GTA IV - Street Sweeper" by EKGene
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d3KItdXkm1k

  Niko calls Manny who says he'll provide more work for Niko.

  Niko gets $1,100.

  Mallorie Bardas calls to tell Niko to meet her at Elizabeta Torres' apartment
on San Quentin in Fortside--Elizabeta has work for Niko.


  Brucie Kibbutz' missions

  V.36  Search and Delete

  Send Niko to Brucie's Executive Lifestyle Autos garage in East Hook on the
east side of Mohanet Ave. east of the first intersection north of Mohanet Ave.
and Cisco St.

  Brucie needs Niko to kill some people before they take the stand and put
Brucie away for a lot of time, but those people are in hiding.  He tells Niko
to steal a police car, get on the computer, and call Brucie.

  Have Niko get into a police car.  One is parked on Mohawk Ave. north of Mas-
terson St.  You could save one from the Vigilante missions. You could have him
dial 911 to request one, jack it, and get rid of the one star wanted rating.
In fact, Brucie will send Niko a text message to try 911 if you have him take
too long.  If you go that route have Niko take it then start the mission to get
rid of the wanted rating.

  The gta.wikia.com site recommends a NOOSE Patriot (it has a police computer
and is designed to ram small vehicles) or Faustin's Turismo for the upcoming
chase.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Search_and_Delete

  He calls Brucie who says the target is Lyle Rivas.  Have Niko, in a police
car at rest, use the computer to "Search Police Records," "Search by Name,"
type "Lyle Rivas," and click "Enter."  Once it's found click Enter to have
Lyle's blip appear on the radar/map on the west side of Onion St. at the north
side of Asparagus Ave.  Have Niko go there, enter the south side of the apart-
ment building, and go to the marker.

  Niko tells Lyle he has a message from Brucie.  Lyle responds by jumping
through the bathroom window.

  Have Niko leave through the south door and chase Lyle's Fortune (the red blip
on the radar) and shoot at it with an SMG till Lyle (possibly with his car) is
destroyed.  If the chase lasts long enough, be careful to avoid obstructions
when Lyle's car hits a truck and makes it drop metal barrels near the airport
terminal and later hits a truck that drops logs (sorry, but these logs will put
a dent in your car) on the Dukes Bay Bridge.  If you have Niko follow Lyle long
enough he slows down and drives randomly around Bohan till you have Niko pit
manuever or otherwise stop Lyle's car.  He's easy to have Niko kill then be-
cause Lyle gets out of his car.
  "GTA IV - Search and Delete (All Possibilities)" by whatever57010
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ko-57mIfuVA

  Niko calls Brucie who's glad (I'm not clear that Lyle did any more than say
things that bothered Brucie, though) and promises more work.

  Niko gets $3,500.

  The Pump Shotgun is available at Gun Stores for $1,200.


  V.37  Easy as Can Be

  Have Niko go to Brucie's garage.

  Brucie says he uses steroids which may be why he's so high strung or maybe
he's just a nut.  (Timothy Adams also supplies the voice of a Random Saint who
says he can't live without his 'roids in the 2011 game "Saints Row: The
Third.")
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Brucie_Kibbutz
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aphrodisiac

  Brucie wants Niko to steal a car Lyle left in an alley off Yorktown Ave. in
Steinway.  Brucie says there are no risks--"easy as can be."

  Have Niko go to the marker on the east side of Yorktown Ave. north of Harri-
son St., go to the south end of the main north-south alley west of that, and
enter the Oracle.  Once he does, a couple of Lyle's gang members park on York-
town Ave. to the east and another pair park behind Niko, get out of their car
and aim their Pistols aimed at Niko.  If you have Niko drive ahead and west to
the street you'll find a third enemy car to his left.

  One method is to just have Niko drive quickly to Brucie's garage.

  If you have Niko fight them have him use an SMG to drive-by the occupants of
the cars.

  Willzyyy shows in the video at the next link that you can have Niko drive-by
the occupants of the first two enemy cars before leaving the alley via the east
side.
  Grand Theft Auto IV - Mission #25 - Easy As Can Be" by Willzyyy
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YjS-orrL1Eg

  Either way, have Niko drive the Oracle to Brucie's lockup.

  Niko calls Brucie and tells him it was an ambush.  Brucie thanks him and
promises to get him a nice car.

  Niko gets $3,500.

  Brucie calls about Roman's gambling problem.


  V.38  Out of the Closet

  Have Niko go to Brucie's flat (where his garage is) on Mohanet Ave.

  Brucie tells Niko that Lyle's gay cousin, who owes Brucie a lot of money,
wants to have Brucie killed.  Roman says the guy is hiding, so Roman creates a
dating profile of Niko, as though he was gay, on the Internet as a lure.

  Have Niko go to the tw@ cafe on the west side of Oneida Ave. north of Cisco
St., Broker.  Niko calls Brucie who tells Niko to use a computer to get on love-
meet.net and find French Tom.  Click the ad for Love Meet, "male," click the
profile for French Tom, click "DATE," and log off.  It takes several game hours
for French Tom to respond by Email.

  During the several game hours till French Tom responds by e-mail, an "M" icon,
for a mission from Manny, "The Puerto Rican Connection" (VII.2), appears on
your radar and in-game map.

  Have Niko go back to the TW2 cafe, go to the Love Meet site,  and respond af-
firmatively to Tom's e-mail that invites Niko to be at the 69th Street Diner in
Hove Beach at a certain time (different times are used).  This appears in
Niko's phone Organizer and reminds him when the date is near.

  Send Niko into the diner at Mohawk Ave./Bart St. at or before the time for
the date.  Niko sits at a table across from Tom (or, if Niko is there ahead of
time, Tom sits at a table across from Niko).  When the game says Niko can get
up and select a weapon, have Niko kill Tom.  If you want to hear more of the
conversation, in which Tom reveals he's a shallow guy and Niko accuses him of
not paying debts, remember that after Tom calls Niko a "scummy immigrant" Tom
runs out the door and it turns into a chase to kill him.

  (Liberty City Minute tip: you can have Niko shoot Tom from near the door, be-
fore sitting at his table, for a quick exit and to avoid any possible attacks
from mobster diners.)

  Niko gets $6,750.

  Niko calls Brucie and tells him he doesn't think Tom will be seeing anyone
anymore.  Brucie says Niko's ad is still on the web.  Brucie says he'd use the
web but only dates models or VIPs who could be models.

  An article about the murder, "Death at the Diner," appears on the Liberty
Tree site.  Roman sends Niko a thank you Email.

  Niko can find dates on the Internet at love-Meet.net (Carmen Ortiz--"SoBo-
Hoe"--and Kiki Jenkins--"LawChick") and craplist.net (Alex Chilton--"Liberated
Woman")--see "Friends" (V.6).


  V.39   No. 1

  Have Niko go to Brucie's place.

  Brucie can't start the car he tuned so he wants to get one from Stevie, and
Brucie has Niko go with him.

  Have Niko drive Brucie to Willis to get the car, a gold Comet, at the corner
of the north side of Lynch St. and the east side of Freetown Ave.

  Have Niko use it to drive Brucie to a checkpoint race--the competitors are
parked facing west at Livingston St. just east of Camden Ave. in Cerveza
Heights.  The checkpoints look like yellow versions of the regular markers and
each one points in the direction of the next part of the course.  The last
checkpoint has a black and white checkerboard pattern on top.

  As in previous GTAs, take it as fast as you can take it carefully.  The Comet
is fast but light, and once Niko has the lead, spinning out can give the other
contestants time to take the lead from him.  I use Reverse/S for braking at
turns more than in previous GTAs.

  Have Niko win the race.

  Thanks for the video by whatever57010 that shows you can have Niko drive to
but not enter the marker for the race, wait for the other contestants to drive
away, then start the race.  The others start from wherever they went so it
gives Niko a head start.  If you have him pause or go too slowly the others can
suddenly appear, though.

  While driving Brucie back to his apartment, Brucie says he just had Niko kill
Lyle and Tom Rivas out of anger, so Niko has Brucie agree to just be friends
and not do missions together anymore.

  Niko gets $6,750.

  Brucie's Races are available and he can be one of Niko's Friends.

  Niko can save the Comet.  You can replay this race from now on.

  "GTA IV PC - How to get the Infernus from the mission "No.1", and still win
the race" by zmoonchild

  Have Niko wait at the end of the race--Montauk Ave. by the southern on/off-
ramps of the Algonquin-Dukes Expressway.  Keep the Infernus in view and have
Niko follow it in his car to where the Infernus stops--the west part of the
circular road around Soldiers Plaza.  Use the Comet to push the Infernus, which
has locked doors, to the Nove Beach parking space.  Have Niko take Brucie home.
(If you have Niko return to the Infernus you'll find that it's unlocked.)  Save
the game.

  V.40  Races

  Have Niko call Brucie and select "Race" to get one of the races for the area
he's in--one of the three for the East Side, one of the three for Algonquin
(legally available later), or one of the three for Alderney (legally available
later).

  "GTA IV: Brucie's Races" by whatever57010
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DymPp1qc5Z0

  Rusk recommends a Turismo and an update on a "GTA III" "Turismo" trick: in-
stead of having Niko drive into the marker have him back up, facing the direc-
tion of the other racers, to lightly bump one of the other race cars to start
the race.  You may only have to have Niko fend off a couple of cars to take the
lead then you only need to have him keep it.
  http://www.gamefaqs.com/xbox360/933037-grand-theft-auto-iv/faqs/53734

  Don't get silly about speed but use your driving sense to take turns slowly
enough to execute them safely.  In "IV" I've noticed I use reverse (S) more for
safe turns.

  How to win Brucie's races uncontested

  Thanks to Jesusaur for the video tutorial, shown at the next link, for this
gimmick.  Have Niko set up the race then drive to, but not into, the yellow
marker.  Use the phone book to select "QUIT RACE" and hang up while the phone
is ringing and the other contestants start to drive away.  After the opponents'
cars leave the scene, you can have Niko drive through the race uncontested.

  Niko gets $500, and, once he's begun his friendship with Brucie, it adds to
his like stat with Brucie, each time he wins.

  Completing the races contributes 2% toward 100% completion.  Have Niko win an
additional eleven times, 20 wins in all, for the "Genetically Superior"
Achievement.


  V.41  Friends--Brucie Kibbutz

  After "No. 1" (V.39), Brucie calls Niko to join him in a Friend activity.
Niko can see Brucie from 7:00 am to 1:00 am.

  Niko has to do all seven activities listed below with Brucie in a way Brucie
likes (for bowling that means having Niko win) for 100% completion of the game.

  Activity likes: boating, bowling (have Niko win), drinking (expensive
places), eating (expensive places), Heli ride, shows (Split Sides), and strip
clubs.

  (Liberty City Minute tip: do two of his favorite activities before doing the
one he asked for.)

  Having Niko win any of the races of V.40 adds to the Like stat with Brucie,
too.

  His favorite radio stations are The Beat 102.7, The Classics 104.1, and Lib-
erty Rock Radio.  His Email address: [email protected].
He may call for a lift from the hospital.
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Brucie_Kibbutz

  Special Ability above 75% like: Niko can call Brucie, select "Chopper," and
he'll use a Maverick to fly Niko to one of 25 destinations.

  Helicopter destinations
  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Friendships_in_GTA_IV?file=BrucieChopper-GTAIV-
Destinations.jpg

  http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Friendships_in_GTA_IV

  Getting the special ability gives Niko the "That's How We Roll" Achievement
and contributes to 100% completion of the game.

  A message on the inside right wall of his helicopter says: "THIS HELICOPTER
MIGHT CRASH BUT WE REALLY DONT CARE  IF IT DOES, REFER TO FLIGHT MANUAL FOR
HELP."

  Niko can also call to have Brucie take him and a couple of Brucie's dates for
a boat ride to one of several locations and afterward keep Brucie's gold and
black Huntley Sport SUV.

  http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0426833/
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Grand_Theft_Auto_IV_characters#Packie_
McReary

  "The luck of the Irish" means the good luck found in misfortune ("You got hit
by a car" "Lucky it was right by a hospital") ("You stepped in dog cr*p" "Good
thing it wasn't my good pair of shoes").

  Have Niko go to Elizabeta Torres' apartment on San Quentin Ave. west of the
west end of Switch St.

  Mallorie introduces Niko to Elizabeta who wants Niko to protect Patrick
"Packie" McReary while he buys from some sellers she doesn't trust.  Packie
tells Niko to use a rifle on the roof next to the location of the meeting on
Joliet Ave.--that Niko will be his guardian angel.  ("Guardian Angels" is name
of a mission in "Vice City" in which Tommy Vercetti and Lance protect Diaz and
his men in a deal with the Haitian gang.)

  Have Niko go into the abandoned apartment building on the east side of Joliet
Ave. south of Switch St., climb the stairs to the roof, use the Sniper Rifle
pickup (if he has a Sniper Rifle it adds to his ammo), then stand at the van-
tage point.

  Packie has an olive green jersey over a white t-shirt, blue jeans, and butch
cut hair.  His associate is stocky and wears blue jeans.

  You fail the mission if Packie dies.  Have Niko make headshots if possible.
Once the shooting starts his targets have red markers over their heads and ap-
pear as red blips on the radar/map.  The markers and blips disappear when
they're dead.

  Thanks to Robert Rusk for recommending that you can have Niko shoot the
red explosive barrel midway back on the porch on the right to get a lot of tar-
gets, and, when more attackers appear, have Niko shoot the red explosive barrel
on the far left.
 
  Packie drives an associate to the foreground of an alley and they talk with a
man with a mustache with a coat over an orange, blue, and red jersey.  A man
smoking a cigarette stands behind him and three others are farther back in the
alley.

  Explosive red barrels method:

  Soon after the man closest to Packie starts waving his arms more quickly he
reaches into his shirt for his gun--have Niko shoot him.  Have Niko shoot the
explosive red barrel midway back on the porch on the right.  Have him shoot the
man who moves left across the foreground to fight with Packie.  Have Niko shoot
the man who was smoking a cigarette who's midway back.  Have Niko shoot the ex-
plosive barrel on the far left.  Have him shoot any enemies left--the last to
arrive is typically a man who enters from the far right to get into a van. Let
Packie and his associate come back into Packie's car and drive away.

  "GTA 4 - Mission #30 - Luck of the Irish (1080p)" by GTA Series Videos
  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWa7EKXQzHU

  No explosive barrels method:

  Have Niko shoot the five.  You probably need to have Niko shoot men as they
run or try to shoot from behind barrels.
  Have Niko shoot the man who goes left in the foreground to fight with Packie.
  Have him shoot the three who enter from the far right then a fourth man who
enters from the far right and gets into a van.

  Niko calls Elizabeta to tell her that Packie was double crossed but he kept
him alive.  Elizabeta is grateful and says she'll have more work for Niko.

  Niko gets $1,500.

  The SMG, $2,500, Sniper Rifle, $6,000, and Combat Sniper, $8,500, are avail-
able at Gun Stores.

  Two Sniper rifles will spawn in the eastern area of the game.  One is in East
Hook on a tall crane by the north end of the Platypus and the other is at the
top of the ladders of a "contained apron" transfer bridge at the north coast of
Steinway.  See the map at IV.7.

  Charlie: James Yaegashi

  The voice of Charlie, a plain clothes police officer here and in "Buyer's
Market" (TLaD), is James Yaegashi--the voice actor for San Fierro Triads leader

2006.

  Have Niko go to Elizabeta's apartment.

friends--Carmen Ortiz.  Another at the party is Random Character Pathos.

  Some think another dancer there looks similar to a grown up Jimmy Hopkins,
the protagonist of the 2006 Rockstar game "Bully," which, after a couple of
years, became available for PC.
  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bully_%28video_game%29

  Elizabeta introduces Niko to Johnny (a member of The Lost--the motorcycle
gang of "No Love Lost," V.22, etc.) whom she says has a lot of heroin to sell.
(Don't you kids out there give organized crime money, let alone for that.)  She
says she found him a buyer and wants Niko to oversee the deal.  Johnny leaves
to go to the meeting place.

  She introduces Niko to Playboy X whom she wants to help Niko oversee the
deal.

  Have Niko use Playboy X' Patriot to take him to the buyer's apartment on the
north side of Cassidy St. on the corner north of the north end of Cayuga Ave.,
Schottier.  On the way Playboy X says Johnny is a member of The Lost, a motor-
cycle gang, and to be careful--Johnny's temper is unpredictable.

  There's a Combat Shotgun on the north end of the first floor of the apartment
building.

  As you send Niko up the stairs Playboy X tells him the buyer is some Asian
dude called Charlie.

  On the third floor they meet the heroin seller Johnny.

  A cutscene shows the three go to a couple men for the deal.  The buyer who
keeps asking to see if the seller has the stuff then yells "Freeze" and pulls a
gun on them is Charlie (voice by James Yaegashi)--undercover LCPD.  Niko, Play-
boy X, and Johnny leave the room which has a missing wall except for the brac-
ing.

  Playboy X says the law officers expect him and Niko to go out the front door
with Johnny so they should head for the roof.

  Have Niko shoot the two LCPD officers armed with Combat pistols, go through
their room and the next room, and shoot the NOOSE agents armed with SMGs found
on the rest of his route.

  Approximate order of events:

  Have him shoot two NOOSE agents that are on the landing by the stairs, one
NOOSE agent that appears at the top of the stairs to the next floor up, go up
the stairs, shoot one NOOSE agent at the base of the stairs to the next floor
up, go up the stairs, shoot two NOOSE agents on the landing, and go up the
stairs to the door to the roof.  There's a First Aid kit on the roof just past
the door.

  Have Niko shoot the two NOOSE agents using air conditioner units for cover
and go northeast over some planks to a lower roof.  There's an Armor pickup by
a nearby AC unit.  Have him go toward the top of the fire escape and shoot
three NOOSE agents as they appear at the top of it.

  Have Niko go down the fire escape to a lower roof.  Have him shoot one NOOSE
agent that comes from the nearby door to a stairway down through an apartment
building.  Have him go down to a floor with a Pump Shotgun pickup, shoot one
NOOSE agent another floor down, shoot one NOOSE agent another floor down, and
shoot one NOOSE agent on the bottom floor.

  Have Niko go out the door to get onto a PCJ 600 and wait for Playboy X to get
on it.

  Thanks to whatever57010 for these speed run tips for avoiding some of the
shooting:
  You don't have to have Niko kill Charlie and his assistant but can have Niko
go west to the stairwell and go up the stairs.  Once he's on the roof and you've
sent him to a lower roof with a rooftop door you can have him jump east down to
the subway track, west to a lower roof, then north to the ground.  Have him get
on the PCJ 600 and wait for Playboy X to get on it.

Algonquin.

league of his and asks Johnny to give information to the FIB.  Johnny, loyal to
The Lost Brotherhood, refuses to do so.)

  Michelle calls--she hopes Niko's work with Elizabeta doesn't mean Niko is
getting involved with drug dealers.  He tells her he's worked for Elizabeta but
won't become a drug dealer.

  Roman calls--he received insurance money for the fire at the taxi depot.
Niko can use Roman's free cab rides.

  Little Jacob calls--he says Elizabeta is a good businesswoman but be wary of
her.

  Playboy X calls--he has a mission for Niko ("Deconstruction for Beginners").
