GTA: San Andreas Walkthrough and Strategy Guide
Los Santos Missions



* Note from the beginning. If you die or fail a mission you must start the mission over by returning to the correct icon. Mission icons, at least at the beginning, are letters. For example, if you failed during a mission you received from Sweet, then head to the "S" icon to restart the mission.

You begin the game by being tossed out of a police car. Consider yourself warned. Move to the bike in front of you. Hit the indicated button to jump on the bike. Follow the on-screen instructions to pedal faster, brake and reverse. Look at your map and make your way to the CJ icon. This is your house. When you reach your house, get off your bike and walk into the red marker.

Beginning Missions



Big Smoke



Move through the cutscene. That's all there is to it.

Sweet & Kendl



Again, move through the cutscene. There will be drive by. Hop on the bike and pedal like a mad man to keep up with your homies. Your boys are indicated on the map by a blue dot, so if you fall behind, move to the blue blip fast. If you fall too far behind you'll be shot at. You'll stop for a second at the Mulholland Intersection, where you will split up. Follow Ryder (again, indicated by the blue blip). You'll learn about Bunny Hops. Practice a few. Move into the red marker when you get to it. For this you get Respect.

Here you are told how to save. Walk into CJ's House and move through the disk. To save a car park it in the garage. Exit and follow the on-screen directions to answer your phone. You are told to head to the "R" Icon. This is the house next to you. Walk into the red marker to activate your mission.

Ryder



Follow the on-screen instructions to hop into Ryder's car. You are first going to the Barber's (yellow blip). Follow the "In Vehicle" controls to speed up, brake, reverse, honk the horn or change the radio stations as you work your way to that yellow blip.

At the Barber's drive into the red marker, then walk through the door indicated by the yellow marker. Choose which haircut you'd like. You can view them before you buy them. We went with "Cesar and 'stash" for $50. Exit out.

Across the street is The Well Stacked Pizza Co. You are told you need to eat to survive in this game. The red bar indicates how much energy you have. Fill it up by eating...but eat too much and you'll get fat. Walk into the pizza place and order what you want. We opted for the Salad Meal. Ryder will walk in after you order the meal. Run outside and hop into Ryder's car. Head to Ryder's (the yellow blip), and pull into the red marker. You will have earned respect.

Next up, head across the street to Sweet's house (the "S" icon).

Tagging Up Turf

Notice the spray can in your hand. You can toggle between your fist and the can with "L2" or "R2" ("White" and "Black" on Xbox). Get in Sweet's car. Drive with Sweet to Idlewood, which is the yellow blip. Drive into the red marker. You will be taught how to tag. This is important as it's much like shooting. On the PS2, hit "R1" to lock on to your target, then press and hold "O" to spray. On the Xbox, hit "R" to target and "B" to spray. You are told to spray the remaining tags in the area.

Tags are indicated by green blips on your radar. One is on the house directly opposite the original tag, the other is on the backside of the alley wall, behind the house. After you've tagged the two, get back into Sweet's car.

Next you are to drive to East Los Santos (the yellow blip). Notice that this time the yellow blip is a triangle. If the triangle points up, your destination is on higher ground then your current location. If the triangle points down, your destination is on lower ground.

Drive into the red marker and spray over the tags. One is in the alley. Approach it and you'll be shown two Ballas, your sworn enemy. You are told they wear purple. There is a tag right next to them. Target and pound on them to get them out of your way, then spray the tag.

Head to the next tag, on the side of Lolita's Mexican Food Restaurant and spray it. Next you'll be told to go to the yellow blip. Walk to it and into the red marker. Follow the on-screen instructions to climb the fence. You are also told about triangles (which I mentioned above, while driving). Point being, there's a tag above you. Climb the two fences, then hang a left and climb the dumpster to the roof. The tag's on this rooftop. Locate it and spray it. Hop into Sweet's car and head back to your house (yellow blip).

For this you will earn $200 and Respect.

"S" Icon Missions (Sweet Missions)



Cleaning the Hood



You and your homies will be bustin' up some crack deals. You are with Ryder. If he gets too far away from you on this mission, you can use "Up" on your Control Pad to call him to you. Hop into Sweet's car and drive to the yellow blip. Drive into the red marker. Your friend was cracked out. Get back in the car and head to the red blip. You'll see a crack deal going down and a red marker above the crack dealer. Go up to him, and follow the on-screen instructions to beat him up and preform your special move on him (wait until the enemy is on the ground to perform the special move). Grab the bat. Get back into Sweet's car. Head to the yellow blip, which is near you. Pull into the red marker. You are outside a crack den. Enter the crack den.

Start beating up the three or four guys. You'll know they're defeated when the reticule turns black. Pick up the aluminum bat. Exit out, hop back in the car, and drive back to Sweet's house (yellow blip).

For this you will earn respect.

Drive-Thru



Hop in the car and drive to the yellow blip, which is at the Cluckin' Bell. Drive into the red light. This will activate your mission. Catch up to the gang car (the red blip) and take them out before they reach your homies! Simply drive close to your rivals, and your boys will automatically shoot at them. When their car is disabled they'll exit the car. Drive over them or hop out of your car and beat them up. When they're dead, hop out and grab one of their guns. Head back to Sweet's house (yellow blip).

Big Smoke will need a ride back to his house. Head to the yellow blip and drive into the red marker.

For this you will earn $200 and respect.

Nines and AKs

Go with Smoke to Emmet's house. Get in a car and head to the yellow blip and drive into the red marker. Here you'll be taught to shoot, just like spray painting. Follow the on-screen instructions to shoot and scroll through targets. Shoot the bottles. Next, follow the instructions to crouch for accuracy. Shoot the bottles. Finally, you'll be taught Manual Aim. Follw the instructions and aim at the gas tank on the car and shoot.

You can visit Emmet's any time to get a gun. Drive Smoke back to his house (yellow blip).

You will be told that you need to represent your Grove St. colors. There's a Bincos around the corner from the gym. Head to the yellow blip. Exit and go inside Binco clothes shop. Walk into the red marker to try on clothes. Any item that you buy will be delivered to your Safe House wardrobe. You are told to wear something Green to represent. I chose green track pants, green hoodie, green low-tops, and a green rag front. Exit the store.

For this you will earn Respect.

Drive-by



Ryder doesn't think you have driving skills. Prove him wrong. Hop in the car and drive to Balla Territory (yellow blip). Drive into the red marker. From here, drive to the red blip and your homies will start shooting. Stay in the area until you are given a new red blip. Drive from red blip to red blip, slowing down at every blip so your boys can take out the Ballas. Also, try to run down your enemies, as it saves your car from being damaged.

After you take out the red blips you'll receive two wanted stars...the cops are after you. Race to the Pay 'N' Spray (yellow blip). Drive through the red marker and you'll be told to pull into the garage. Do so. Your wanted stars will then be flashing. Your wanted level has been suspended, but if you do anything bad while they're flashing, your wanted level will be reinstated.

Drive back to Grove St. (yellow blip) and receive $500 and Respect.

Sweet's Girl



Your mission here is to save Sweet who is being gunned down at his girlfriend's flat (yellow blip). For this mission you might want a gun. If you don't have a gun, it's best to visit Emmet's (Gun Icon) to get a gun before you start the mission. It's also a good idea to have a car before starting this mission. When you have these things, start the mission and drive to the blip.

When you get to the blip there are about four enemies on the street. It's best and easiest to run them down. If your car catches fire, hop out of your car and start shooting (or hop into another car and continue running them down). Once you've taken them all out, drive into the red marker. Next, make sure everyone is in your car and race back to your hood (yellow blip). If you have no yellow blip, you've left someone behind.

Once in your hood, drive into the red marker. For this you will earn Respect.

Cesar Vialpando



Find a car and go to the garage in Willowfield (yellow blip). Here you will receive a bouncing lowrider. Back up into the garage to pimp out your car. You can visit the garage at any time. It's indicated on your map by the Wrench Icon.

Exit the garage and drive to the lowrider meeting (yellow blip). Follow your on-screen instructions and play with your hydraulics. At the lowrider meeting spot, drive into the red marker and wager what you want (we went with $50, as the funds were low).

Upon taking the bet, push your right analog stick in the direction the on screen icon tells you, as it passes through the circle. You have to beat the opposition's score.

For this you earned $100 (or whatever you bet). You also unlocked CV Missions.

Doberman



Sweet Missions are eventually unlocked again (for us it happened upon completion of the "burning desire" "C" Icon mission). This mission begins at the entrance to Ammu-Nation. Walk into the red marker to get it started.

You are shown Glen Park, Ballas Territory. You need to take out the Ballas to claim the turf as your own. Enter Ammu-Nation and pick out a weapon. Next, head to the green "Families" icon. If you check out your Map, you'll see the enemy territory is marked by a purple square. It will remain that way until you take out the Family.

When you reach the Family icon, get out of your car and start popping gang members while on foot. They're all around, as are cops, so look out. Shooting enough Ballas will provoke a gang war. The purple square will start flashing red, and your enemies will be indicated by purple blips. If you have enough ammo, go ahead and shoot away, as most of these guys have bats. If you're more comfortable getting in a car and running them down, feel free. Once you take down the first wave, a second wave will come, these guys have pistols. The third wave has automatic weapons. It's definitely a good idea to be in a vehicle to take this crowd down.

Once you take out the third wave, the territory is yours and you will earn Respect. Your gang members will now be in this territory, which will occasionally be under attack. When it is under attack the territory will flash red and an icon will appear on your radar. When this happens, defend your territory for more respect and cash.

After you learn about your territory you'll be told to kill the man in front of you (red blip). Take him down to complete the mission. Now your map will show you a color chart of territories.

Los Sepulcros



You have to activate this mission between 09:00 and 17:00. You need gang members. Your respect should be high enough from your previous "S" mission to recruit a few. Grab the gang members on Grove Street by walking up to them (indicated by blue arrows), hitting "R1" and pressing up or down on your control pad. When you've grabbed your two you'll be told to hop in your car. Do so.

In the car, drive to the cemetary, indicated by the yellow blip. You have to get there before Kane arrives, so you have a time clock. Don't let it run out. Drive into the red marker and hop over the wall. Run up to your gang.

You are in control of your gang. Press up to have your gang follow, press down to have them hold position. Holding up or down, or moving too far away will disband your group. You are to kill Kane (red arrow). Press up to have your gang follow you and take him out. Shoot any and every red blip as you go, as once you kill Kane you'll be told to take out the rest of the Ballas anyway. Sweet will disappear to grab the getaway car. Your wanted rating will be raised to one or two stars.

Continue shooting until you're told to go to your car. Run to the car (blue blip) and head back to Sweet's house (yellow blip).

Reuniting the Families



Hop into the car and drive to the motel where the families are gathering, the yellow blip, and drive into the red marker. The cops come to the motel in force. You need to get Sweet out of the motel.

Run into the motel through the door near you, it's the yellow marker. You are told that you can purchase drinks at soda machines to replenish your health. You need to get to the blue blip, Sweet. Go up the motel stairs and make your way through the halls toward Sweet, killing as you go. If your health gets low, run downstairs and buy sodas. When you get to Sweet, you'll end up on the roof and you'll have to destroy the Swat Helicopter while protecting Sweet who now has a health meter. Shoot the cops on the helicopter skids, then target the helicopter itself. If you see an SMG machine gun, grab it and use it to shoot the copter. Soon, the copter will crash. Follow Sweet, the blue blip. Ryder and Big Smoke will pull up.

Once in the car, you are the shooter. Aim with the Left Analog Stick and shoot with "O" on the PS2 or "B" on the Xbox. Note your car's health meter. The cops chasing you will be primarily behind you but be aware of any to the left, right, or in front of you. After a while, you'll get a cutscene of your car crashing through a billboard. The mission will be complete and you'll earn respect.

The Green Sabre



After Sweet gives his speech you'll get a phone call from Cesar. Cesar is waiting for you under the freeway, he's the yellow blip. Drive into the red marker and get into the car in the alley, the blue blip. After seeing Big Smoke and Ryder, who are traitors, you have to get to the ambush before Sweet dies. Sweet has a health meter. When you get close you'll see a bunch of red blips. Drive into the red marker. Sweet is hurt, but his meter has stopped draining. Use the cars for protection, crouch and take aim at the Ballas. Hold them off until the cops come. If you run out of ammo, run to a gun, grab it then take cover. Another option is to hop into any one of the surrounding cars and start running the Ballas down.

"R" Icon Missions (Ryder Missions)



Home Invasion



To activate this mission, you must enter the red circle between 12:00 and 20:00.

You are placed in a delivery truck. You have to accomplish this mission before daylight. There is a timer. Drive to the yellow blip and drive into the red marker. Enter the house. You must remain quiet the whole time you're in the house. There is a Noise Meter. To sneak, push gently on the control stick. You have to find crates in the house. There is one in the kitchen. Go in, follow the on-screen instructions to pick up the crate, and slowly walk it out to the truck. Follow the instructions again to load the crate into the truck. Go back in the house. There's another crate at the top of the stairs. Grab it and take it to the truck. There is one more crate, upstairs, at the end of the hall. When this third crate is loaded, get out of there. You have to get safely back to the lockup. Head to the yellow blip and drive into the red marker garage.

For this you earn respect.

Catalyst



Make sure you have at least $100 in your pocket before you start this mission (although, if you're quick you can make money during this mission).

Officer Tenpenny stops by Ryder's place and tells you about an unscheduled train stop. Drive to the ammo train (yellow blip). When you near it, the blip will turn red. Shoot the Vagos robbing the train. Simply shoot anybody with a red icon over their head. If you run out of ammo, be aware that there are guns around you. Next, protect the train from the Ballas. Remember to take cover behind the car and crouch. After you take them out collect their money, then, climb onto the back of the train, by walking into the red marker.

The train will start moving and you'll have to toss ammo crates at Ryder, who is following you in the car. Follow the instructions to power up and release to throw. You have to toss 10 crates in the time allowed. Simply aim your reticule over Ryder and toss them. After you successfully do this, you'll need to get to a Pay 'N' Spray to lose the cops, as you will have a three star rating. Head to the yellow blip and drive into the Pay 'N' Spray. You will need the $100 for the car job. With your Warning Level now gone, head back to your hood (yellow blip) and drive into the red marker on the road.

For this you earned respect.

Robbing Uncle Sam



Get in the van with Ryder. Drive down to the compound at the Ocean Docks, the yellow blip. Drive into the red marker. You are outside a National Guard base. You are to shoot the switch on the other side of the wall to open the gate. Hop over the wall and shoot the guard near the switch. Then, manually aim at the switch box and shoot it. Ryder will drive through and park outside a warehouse. Take out any surrounding Guards, then, shoot the switch box on the outside of the warehouse to raise the garage door. Hop onto the Forklift. You need to move 6 boxes onto the truck. The Forklift drives just like a car, but use your Right Analog Stick to raise and lower the lifts. A crate does not have to be upright for you to lift it, but you do have to line up squarely with it to lift it.

While you are delivering crates to the back of the truck Ryder is outside. Note his health meter. If Ryder dies, the mission is over. After every crate you deliver, hop off the forklift and help Ryder take out the surrounding men. Repeat this process. Note there are four crates inside the warehouse, and several outside the warehouse. Get any six into the truck, then hop in the truck and start driving to the yellow blimp (which is located at Emmet's place).

At this point the Guardsmen will start chasing you in their Hummers. Honk your horn and Ryder will toss a crate at them. Continue this until they are no longer on your tail. Drive into the red marker. For this you will earn respect.

"BS" Icon Missions (Big Smoke Missions)



OG Loc



You are to pick up Jeffrey at jail. Head to the yellow blip and drive into the red marker. Next, drive to Freddy's House (the yellow blip), drive into the red marker, then head up the stairs and walk into the red marker at the top.

You are automatically put on a motorcycle with Jeffrey. Chase after Freddy (the red blip), and kill him. Jeffrey (OG Loc) will automatically shoot at Freddy when you get close enough to him, you can also shoot him with "O" (PS2) or "B" (Xbox), but there's no point as you'll only waste ammo. Don't let Freddy get too far away from you, or you'll fail the mission. He does have a specific route. Think of this mission as the one where you will learn your motorcycle skills.

Freddy will eventually lead to to a park staircase where he'll stop. Four of his homies will start shooting at you. Shoot them and Freddy. Make sure you don't let your bike be caught in the crossfire. If it blows up, you'll fail the mission.

Next, drive Jeffrey to the back door of the Burger Shot (yellow blip). Drive into the red marker for some respect.

Running Dog



Go pick up Big Smoke's cousin (Mary, aka, Mary Jane). Hop into Big Smoke's car. If you don't have a weapon, you need one. Go visit Emmet (Pistol Icon).

Once you have a weapon, head to the yellow blip and drive into the red marker. It's a drug deal gone bad. Chase down the gang member. Follow the red blip. Here you will learn to super-sprint. The best way to do this is to do it a few times and learn the enemy's running route. Once you have it down, hop into a car at the beginning and follow his red blip. When he shows up in the street, just before he hops into a car, run him down and kill him.

Wrong Side of the Tracks



Head to Unity Station, the yellow blip, and drive into the red marker. Hop onto the motorbike with Big Smoke and take out the Vagos gang members on top of the train, the red blip. Basically, just ride alongside the train and let Big Smoke shoot. Try to stay steady and a little to the right so that Big Smoke has a good angle on the Vagos. Watch out for cars along the tracks and avoid on-coming trains by going to the side of them. When Big Smoke tells you to take the upper right side path, don't listen. Just avoid the wooden blockade that is there, and continue alongside the train. Once all four are dead, head back to Big Smoke's house, the yellow blip.

For this you'll earn some respect.

Just Business



Take Big Smoke Downtown, the yellow blip, and drive into the red marker. You are placed into a firefight. Lock on and take out the enemies. Remember to take cover. Behind a half-wall, you'll find some Body Armor. Follow Big Smoke. You are now outside. Continue to kill. You'll automatically hop onto the back of a motorbike and you'll be the shooter. Use the Left Analog Stick to aim and use "O" on the PS2 or "B" on the XBox to fire. Shoot the enemies on the motorbikes chasing you. You'll stop for a moment as there's a roadblock. Simply use the time to take on any surrounding shooters. When you start up again the attacks will be heavier and will come from cars, too. Just take out everyone shooting at you from behind. Later, focus on barrels for big explosions. Survive to earn some Respect.

"CV" Icons Missions (Cesar Vialpando Missions)



These missions open up upon completing the "Cesar Vialpando" in the "S" Icon Missions. You need to be in a lowrider car to activate these missions. There's often a Voodoo lowrider parked across the street from the CJ red marker.

High Stakes, Low-rider



Follow Cesar (the blue blip) to the race start location and pull into the red marker. You will be tossed into a race. Make your way to and through the tall red markers (red blips on your map). Each tall marker has a direction arrow inside of it, to help guide you. Come in first place for $1000.

"OG" Missions (OG Loc Missions)



These missions open up upon completing the "OG Loc" mission in the "R" Icon Missions. The icon is outside of the Burger Shot. To activate them, you must walk into the red marker between the specified hours.

Life's a Beach



Drive to the beach party (the yellow blip). When you get there, get out of your car and walk into the red marker to speak to the DJ. You get an option here to speak positively (right on your control pad) or negatively (left on your control pad). We chose to speak positively both times. Get ready for some DDR action! Hit the appropriate buttons as they pass through the circle. You must score at least 4000 (although, on the Xbox it was 2500). Continue answering positively, then steal the van. Walk up to the front door and hop in. Drive the van to the garage, as indicated by the yellow blip. For this you will earn respect.

Madd Dogg's Rhymes



Go to Madd Dogg's mansion, the yellow blip. You'll have to take high roads to get there. If you have trouble, locate the "Vinewood" sign close to the blip. Looking up at it from below, you should spot a narrow road to the left. Take it up to the top and locate Madd Dogg's mansion.

The entrance to Madd Dogg's mansion is around the back. Take the twisty driveway down to the back of the house. Find the yellow indicator in front of the door and enter. The Rhyme Book is in Madd Dogg's recording studio, the green blip. Time for some sneaking. Madd Dogg's guards are the red blips on the map. If you sneak up behind a Guard with your knife equipped, target him, then hit "O" when your arm is raised, you'll do a stealth kill. Don't use any guns. You have a knife.

Move down the hall to the pool room. Look out for the circling guard. Stay behind him so he doesn't spot you, then sneak into the next room. Here, go forward and you'll spot a guard coming your way. You're shown a dark hall to your left. Pop into it and wait in the shadows (notice your personal indicator turns grey when you're hidden) until the oncoming guard moves past the door. He won't come back your way. Exit out of the dark hall and move left (in the direction you were going when you spotted the guard) into the orange/peach colored area. Move left (your only choice), then move straight down the hall until you're shown the bartender. Hang a left to move past the bartender (crouch or he'll see you) and past the man watching TV. Exit out into the hall and work your way around to the first room on the left. In here is some armor. Exit out the opposite entrance and look right. You'll see a guard. Take him out, then enter the room he was guarding. Here, you'll see the Rhyme Book (green blip). Collect it.

Time to get out of here. You can use your weapons if you want, but you should try to stay stealthy. Before backtracking, continue on into the next room (the library), where you should find a silenced pistol. Use it as you make your way back to you exit, the yellow blip. Upon exiting the mansion, you'll have to get back to the Burger Shot, the yellow blip. Head there and drive into the red marker. For completing this mission you'll earn respect.

Management Issues



You need to take out Scipio, Madd Dogg's manager.

One of Madd Dogg's drivers is eating at the Burger Shot across town. Go there and steal his car and meet up with the other drivers before 10:00pm (22:00). The car you need to steal is the red blip. You'll get a phone call from Loc on the way there telling you that the driver is en route to the awards. Find the car, ram it and force the driver out. Kill the driver then get into the car.

The car is most likely damaged (unless you barely damaged it by ramming it with a bike of sorts). If it is, you need to make your way to the Pay 'N' Spray (green spray can icon on your map). Go there, drive in and repair your car.

Once your car is repaired, head to the yellow blip, where the other drivers are located. If you damage your car, you have to go back to the Pay 'N' Spray, but you probably won't have time, so don't damage your car! Once you near the other drivers, you are told to park in the same direction they're facing. Do so.

Next, drive in the middle of the moving motorcade. Upon picking up the manager, you have to drive to the yellow blip, the pier. Get onto the beach then find the pier. Get up your speed and right before the end of the pier, hit "Triangle" to bail out. You may end up in the water. That's fine. Swim back to shore. You earned respect for doing this.

House Party



The house party will start at 8pm and end at 5am. First, you need to get a haircut and a change of clothes. Look at your map and do so (there's a barber right across the street from the "OG" icon). Along the way you'll get a phone call saying that OG Loc's mic is broken. Ignore it. Just go for the haircut at the Barber's and the new threads at the closest clothing store. Once that's done, head for the OG icon on the map, now on Grove St. You can only enter OG's house between 8pm and 6am. Walk into the red marker and this mission will officially begin.

Next take out the Ballas outside. Grab the gun in front of you, crouch, and shoot anyone you target. First they'll be on the ground. Next they'll be on the bridge above. After you've taken them out on the bridge, you'll be told to protect the alley. However, when your gang heads toward the alley, more enemies will come from behind. I suggest staying in position, while using the protection of a car, to take out those who come from behind, then head down the alley and continue to clear the Ballas out. Make sure Sweet doesn't die, or the mission will fail. For this you will receive Respect.

"C" Icon Missions (Crash Missions - Los Santos)



During the OG Loc Missions (if you're doing them in order) you will receive a call from Officer Tenpenny. Once you do, you will be told to meet him at the donut shop, indicated by the "C" Icon.

Burning Desire



You need to get rid of one of Tenpenny's "problems", the Vagos Gang House. First, head to the Downtown alleyway where Tenpenny has placed some molotovs for you to use (the green blip). Collect them, then drive to the gang house (the yellow blip). You are to blow up the gang house with your molotovs, by tossing them in the five downstairs windows (the house turns into a red blip when you get close enough to it). However, before you begin tossing at the windows (each one has a red indicator pointing to it), take out everyone outside of the house. Only then begin tossing your molotovs. To toss a molotov, press "O" ("B" on the Xbox), then release. The longer you hold "O", the farther your toss will be. Be sure to toss it a good distance from you, or you'll be toasted, too. Some will run out of the house as you're tossing molotovs. Hit them with flame, too.

Once you hit all five windows and the house is burning, you'll be told a girl is trapped inside. You must save her. Note her health meter. Run in the front door. Crouch and make your way forward and to the kitchen, to your right. Here is a fire extinguisher. Run to the back of the house (opposite your entrance), and make your way up the stairs. At the top, run to the end of the hall and aim your fire extinguisher at the base of the flames blocking the left door. Put them out. The girl will be in front of you.

To exit, run into the room across the hall from where the girl is to bypass the fallen roof. Put out the flames as you work your way back to the staircase. Downstairs you'll also have to put out flames and avoid fallen sections of ceiling to exit out (look for the yellow icon). Make sure the girl is close to you when you exit.

Once outside, the lady wants a ride home. She lives just off Grove Street. Take her to the yellow blip and drive into the red marker. They lady's name is Denise Robinson, and she is now your girlfriend. This is also where more "S" Icon missions came to surface, the first new one indicating the placement of Ammu-Nation.

Gray Imports



Tenpenny tells you to check out the docks where the Ballas and the Russians are making a deal. Drive to the docks (the yellow blip), where you are told to find a way inside. Go to the next yellow blip, and try to not be spotted along the way. If you are (chances are you will be), start shooting. Look for barrels to shoot to take out many enemies. Note the body armor up on the crate to the right of your destination.

At the yellow blip you'll be told to shoot the keypad. Manually aim and do so. There are men behind the door. Take them down, and continue to take the down as you head to the office (red blip). There's more body armor and health along the way. Again, shoot at barrels to take out many enemies at a time. Take the stairs up to the office (note the AK-47 beneath the stairs). In the office is the Russian Arms Dealer. You are to take him out. Don't bother shooting him. He will run to a car. Hop on the parked motorcycle and follow him. Get directly behind him and shoot him with "O" ("B" on the Xbox) to blow up his car.

Badlands



Upon completing the "The Green Sabre" mission in the "S" icon missions, the "C" Icon will reappear, next to where Tenpenny drops you off. If you need health, run to the Cluckin' Bell. If you need ammo, head to the Ammu-Nation (I like the Silenced 9mm for this mission), save next to the "C", then step into the red marker to activate.

Tenpenny wants you to take out a witness, then take a picture for proof. Snapping a picture is like shooting a weapon. Simply equip the camera, aim and shoot. Zoom in and out with R2/L2 on the PS2 and "black"/"white" on the Xbox.

Grab the dirt bike, then drive to the yellow blip and move through the red marker. Next, make your way up the mountain path to the yellow blip (you might want to check your larger map for the most direct route). When you get close you'll be told he's inside. You are to smoke him out, look out for the feds, and get a picture of the witness in one piece. This is done best by simply watching the Feds. You can enter the cabin via the front door or the back door. When the path is clear, enter and take out the witness. Snap a picture (make sure his entire body is in the frame). You'll know it's a successful mission when you are told your next goal: Drop off the camera at the drop spot. Hop back on your bike and drive to the yellow blip. Walk into the red marker.

Los Santos Missions



After you travel to San Fierro and Las Venturas, you will return to Los Santos. These missions are also found under the Las Venturas section, as they complete the game. If you don't want to see spoilers, then ignore what's below until you come to it. Again, these missions won't be unlocked until the end of the game.

"CJ" Icon Missions (Carl Johnson Missions)



The "CJ" icon will appear over Madd Dogg's Mansion upon completing the "Breaking the Bank at Caligula's" "$" mission. Hop into the red marker outside the upstairs entrance to activate it.

Vertical Bird



Toreno calls and in the middle of a Madd Dogg recording session. He drives you to a boat and sends you on a big mission. You will be stealing a military jet off and amphibious assault ship, and you are going to use it to destroy some spy ships. No biggie.

Hop in the boat and grab the knife and silenced pistol. Head for the ship (yellow blip) by moving northwest and around the barrier. Approach the blip and you'll get a quick cutscene. You are to get into the ship before the door closes. Hop out of your boat, swim alongside the ship,then move around the back toward the blip. You'll get another quick cutscene.

Inside, make your way up the ramp. Wait for the talking guards to walk away, then move forward. If you're spotted by the mechanic, he'll run to the alarm. Tag him with your silenced pistol before he reaches it. Go through the door and up the stairs. Only move up this first flight, then make your way through the door. Work you way toward the control room (yellow blip), again, try to avoid being spotted. Enter the small control room and walk into the red marker.

Next, you are to steal one of the military jets. The jets are on the same level as the control room. Go ahead and take out a more powerful gun, and make your way to one of the jets (yellow blip, which is probably covered by a red blip indicating a guard), taking out the few guards as you go. Hop in one of the exposed jets and take off (hit "X" on the PS2, "R-trigger" on the Xbox). Once you're satisfied with your height, hit R3 (push down on R-trigger) to pull in the landing gear, then press up on right analog stick to position your thrusters and fly normally. You will be attacked. You'll need to fight back. Hit "R1" to target ("X" on the Xbox). When the target turns red, hit "L1" to fire the homing missiles ("A" on the Xbox). If a missile comes at you, hit "O" to unleash countermeasures ("B" on the Xbox). Take out all of the planes. Once you've destroyed all three jets, you must destroy the spy ships (yellow blips, up north). Again, target and launch as you did previously.

Upon destroying the enemy ships, fly the jet to the desert airfield, anywhere on the landing strip (yellow blip). If you want to land in a hover, you'll have to readjust your thrusters, otherwise, just land normally and drive the plane into the hangar's red marker (yellow blip). For this you will receive $50000.

Home Coming



Before you start this mission it is recommend that you get body armor and a few decent guns and ammo. Toreno gives you a phone. Sweet is on the end of the line. You must go pick him up from the Precinct (yellow blip). Hop in the parked car and make your way there. Drive into the red marker. Sweet wants to go back to Grove Street (yellow blip), despite your warnings. Drive him there anyway.

On Grove Street drive into the red marker. Your new mission is to take back the hood from the Ballas and take out the Dealers (red blip). You should take advantage of your gang members here...but only those not jacked up on crack, obviously. Walk up to your Grove Street gang and target a gang member and hit "up" on your control pad to call them to you.

Take out the Dealers first (note they have red arrows above them). Next, take out some of the surrounding Ballas (gang members in purple). This will provoke the necessary gang war with them (purple blips). The Ballas will come in waves. Watch your radar so you know where they are, and shoot away. Keep an eye out for randomly appearing health and body armor. Also watch Sweet's health meter. Upon completing this mission you will get your turf back, you'll earn Respect and unlock new "S" missions.

Cut Throat Business



You are going to make an unannounced visit to the studio to bust up OG Loc. Drive Madd Dogg to the video shoot (yellow blip). When you near it you'll be told OG Loc (red blip) is getting away. Hop into a hovercraft and chase him to the pier. At the pier you will get into a Go-Kart. Chase OG to his studio. Madd Dogg has his rhyme book back. You'll earn respect.

Riot



You will unlock this mission when you complete the "Grove 4 Life" "S" Mission.

It's riot time! The system has screwed the people, and the people are rioting! Nothing good can come from this. Head to Grove Street (yellow blip). Along the way cop cars will spontaneously combust. Be careful to avoid them. Drive into the red marker. This unlocks another "S" mission.

"S" Icon Missions (Sweet Missions)



These are unlocked after completing the "Home Coming" "CJ" Mission.

Beat Down on B Dup



It's a good idea to have some decent weapons and body armor before starting this mission. Once you start this mission, grab a few gang members to help you.

Drive to B Dup's house (yellow blip) and into the red marker. B Dup isn't there. Drive to Glen Park (green "families" icon). When you near the area, Sweet will get a health meter. Get out and start taking out Ballas (gang members in purple) to incite a gang war. You'll have to look for them as they're not indicated on your radar. They can be anywhere in the park, even on the bridge that spans across the park. You're more likely to incite a gang war if you take out a group of them with your automatic weapons.

Once you have your gang war, watch your radar for purple blips, which come from every direction. Simply take out the three waves of Ballas, by gunfire or by running them down, and you'll capture the hood. Note there there are a couple of health refills on the surrounding streets.

After you take over the hood, you'll be placed in front of B Dup's house (yellow blip). Take out the guards (red blips), then walk into the red marker for Respect.

Grove 4 Life



Body armor and good weaponry are a must here.

It's time to get your old turf back. Collect Sweet and a couple of gang members, then make your way to Idlewood (yellow blip). In Idlewood, do what you do best. First, find a group of Ballas and shoot them down. This will start a gang war. Next, take out the three waves of Ballas that come after you. You're used to this by now. As always, crouch for accuracy when shooting, and use what you can for cover (parked cars and few corners and walls are all you have). Watch your radar so you can see where the Ballas are coming from. If they sneak up behind you, they'll toast you. Health and body armor are usually nearby during these skirmishes. Also, be sure to keep an eye on Sweet. He's OK at protecting himself from gunfire, but he can fall to his death or be run over by a car if you're not watching him.

Upon surviving the three waves, the turf is yours. The square will turn green. You have to make all of the squares in the Idlewood area turn green. That's right...all of them. Grab more gang members, as many as you can, and head to another purple area. Repeat the process. Note, when you've cleared out an area, you are free to leave Idlewood to refuel, gear up, or hit the Pay 'n' Spray (if you have a wanted level).

When you completely claim Idlewood as Grove Street territory, you'll be told to head home (yellow blip). Do so and drive into the red marker. For this you will receive $10000 and Respect.

Los Desperados



Complete the "Riot" "CJ" mission to access this one.

You have to help Cesar. Grab two "grove street families" gang members. You'll be told to drive with Cesar to meet up with the Veteranos at Unity Station (yellow blip). Drive into the red marker. Help Cesar and his gang clear out the neighborhood. The enemies have a red arrow above their heads. The radar won't show the enemies to you until you get near them. So, let Cesar lead you and kill off the Vagos as you get to them. After Cesar and you clear out the first area you'll be told to clear the Alleyway (yellow blip). Go into the red marker.

Next, you must stay close to Cesar and clear out the alleyway. Use the car for cover and take everybody out. After the first wave, note the health heart in the garage. Kill off the next wave, again, hide behind the car. You'll be told to watch your back. Turn around and kill the two Vagos who come in from behind. Next, you'll have one final wave of enemies to kill. Watch out for the guy on the roof on the left, and kill off everybody. You'll earn respect.

End of the Line



After the "Los Desperados" mission, you'll receive a phone call from Sweet telling you to take over more opposing gang territories (Ballas - Purple, Vagos - Yellow) before you can start the next mission. You know the routine. Shoot a gang of enemies to start a gang war. After you win each territory, be sure to save at any of the various safe houses or back in your hood. Keep taking over territories until you get a phone call from Sweet. It took me quite a while to get that phone call...probably a good 8-10 territories. Also, be sure to mix up your purple and yellow territories so that you don't get too many of one and not enough of the other.

Finally, you got a phone call from Sweet. Go to the "S" icon and pick up Sweet. Time to take out Smoke. Drive to Big Smoke's crack fortress (yellow blip) and drive into the red marker. In order to get into the crack fortress you have to break down the reinforced wall with a SWAT Tank. Go get a SWAT Tank (blue blip). Sneak up to it as best as possible, take out any cops in your way, then grab it and drive it back to the crack fortress (yellow blip). Smash through the wall and continue to drive it through the halls to the next yellow blip. Hop out and enter the yellow arrow. Smoke is on the 4th floor Penthouse Suite. You need to make your way up to him.

Floor 1: Security Area - go up the stairs, kill, grab the body armor then just barely go through the doors to the warehouse. In this area there are several enemies up above on the balcony and a bunch more on the ground level. Use your AK47 or M4 assault rifle to take out the enemies. Remember to crouch and take cover as best you can. After that warehouse room, go through the crate hallway and up the stairs. Grab the heart and the assault shotgun then go through the double doors.

Floor 2: Drug Lab - go up the stairs, kill the guy at the top, grab the body armor and go through the doors, crouched. In this drug lab, take out all the enemies. The exploding barrels help and if you want, grab the plethora of M4s left behind by the enemies. Go up the stairs, all the way around the balcony and into the computer room where you can grab a heart. Go through the doors.

Floor 3: Ballas Lounge - go up the stairs, shoot the guy, and grab the body armor. Make your way through the lounge and go up the stairs to the fourth floor.

Floor 4: Penthouse - note the Rockstar welcome mat. Go through the doors. After the cutscene, you are told that Big Smoke is wearing a bullet proof vest so you'll have to aim at other parts of his body. First, take out the enemies in the area, then target Smoke and lay into him. Don't worry about manual aiming, just pump him full of lead. Use an assault rifle (AK47 or M4) and keep crouched behind the counter for cover. Take out any other enemies that appear while you're attacking Smoke.

After the cutscene with Tenpenny, you have 7 minutes to get out of the building. The lights are off. You are supposed to pick up the Night Vision Goggles and equip them. However, I found it easier to move around with out them.

Start backtracking through the building. Shoot anybody who gets in your way. On the 2nd floor you'll have to grab the fire extinguisher and use it on the fire blocking the door. In fact, you're going to have to be aware of fire in the building for the rest of the way. Remember, aim at the base of the fire to put it out. You'll know it's working when you see the fire smoke. Also, you don't have to put out entire fires to pass through them, just sections of the fires. As soon as you pass through a fire, re-equip a gun and continue to be aware of enemies popping out. Check your surroundings to find a health heart and body armor. When you reach the bottom, go into the arrow. I did this fairly carefully and slowly and had about a minute left.

Next, you'll see Sweet hop onto the fire truck that Tenpenny is using to get away. You're in a car, chase the fire truck and make sure Sweet (blue blip) is safe. After a long chase you'll see a meter pop up: "Sweet's Grip". Once that appears, drive under Sweet and he will drop into your car.

You'll switch seats and Sweet will drive while you shoot. Don't worry about the fire truck. You need to destroy the various enemies chasing you. At first, it's Vagos cars. Then, motorcycles will chase after you, then cops. Just keep shooting the vehicles until they blow up. After doing this for a while, Tenpenny will lose control of the fire truck and it will fly off a highway overpass.

And, with that, you will have completed the Story Mode of the game! WooHoo! If you stuck to the Story Mode, your stats should read that you have a 50% - 60% completion. Nice work! Now play around and see what else you can do.
