    I. Introduction
    
    Hello and welcome to my GTA IV Walkthrough and FAQ.
    R* finally gives us the next generation of Grand Theft Auto, this time on both
    the Xbox 360 and PS3.
    
        A. About This Guide
    
        This will be (at least trying to be) a complete GTA IV walkthrough.
        It will hopefully have mostly everything about the game like secret places,
        where to find stuff, how to complete missions and so on.
        I will not mark spoilers with spoilers, so I can anytime drop some story
        bomb. If you don't like it, play the game without this guide.
    
        B. What I Want (And Don't Want)
    
        Here is what I want: I want NOTHING until the guide is up to 1.0. After
        that, it would be nice with corrections of things I have wrong, and things
        I have missed. And PLEASE have something with GTAIV in the subject or else
        I can miss it.
    
        What I don't want: Questions about things that already are in this guide,
        spam or viruses.

    III. About the game
    
    What does the American dream mean today?
    For Niko Bellic fresh off the boat from Europe, it is the hope he can escape
    his past. For his cousin, Roman, it is the vision that together they can find
    fortune in Liberty City, gateway to the land of opportunity.
    As they slip into debt and get dragged into a criminal underworld by a series
    of shysters, thieves and sociopaths, they discover that reality is very
    different from the dream in a city that worships money and status, and is
    heaven for those who have them and a living nightmare for those who don't...
    
    
    Rockstar North is back with a new Grand Theft Auto game. Liberty City is once
    again rebuilt from scratch, this time with a more realistic touch.
    So what's different from earlier games? And what makes it worth buying this
    game?
    First of all, it's a totally new game engine called RAGE (Rockstar Advanced
    Game Engine). R* used the RenderWare engine (created by Criterion Software)
    in earlier GTA games. In 2004, EA acquired Criterion Games and Criterion
    Software. R* chose not to license the RenderWare engine due to concern over the
    information gathering clause in EA's license agreement. Or so the story goes.
    The result was that R* created their own game engine that was first used in
    Rockstar Games presents Table Tennis.
    We have a new controller system. It's never been easier to control your GTA
    character. The vehicles acts different from earlier games so you need to
    relearn how to drive in order to truly master the game.
    More radio stations than ever. And if you don't like the music, just hit your
    Xbox Guide button and play your own music.
    The police chases are more realistic. When you are hunted, you have a red ring
    on your minimap where the cops are searching for you. If they see you, you are
    placed in the middle of the circle. To get away, you have to either hit a good
    old Pay & Spray or getting away from the ring. The more stars you have, the
    bigger ring and more vehicles are searching for you.
    Less loadings. You can enter and leave buildings without any loadings this
    time. You can play most of the game without getting any loading screens at all.
    You can get them if you fail at the game however, but that's your own fault ;)
    Mobile phone. You have a mobile phone that you can use to call your friends.
    Or call 911 to make them send out some cops. Later you will get a better phone
    that allows you to take, send and receive photos as well.
    GPS. You are never lost with a GPS in your car. Just tell where you will go and
    you will get help with how to get there.
    Autosaves. Your game is not autosaved after each mission. You can still save
    normally in your hideout.
    And much much more.
    
    *******************************************************************************
    IV. Controllers
    
    We can choose between two different types of controller configurations. The
    first one is called Standard and the second is called Classic.

    VI. Tips & Tricks
    
    A few tips to help you survive in Liberty City.
    
    Take care of your health
      Alway s take a look at your health. The less you have, the bigger chance you
      have to die. If you know that the next mission will have people shooting at
      you, make sure that you eat something before you do the mission. Restaurants,
      hot dog vendors, it exist many ways to regain lost health. And keep it up
      between the missions as well, who knows what will happen when you freeroam
      around...
      Remember that if you eat while out on a date, you will refill your health.
    
    Use armor
      The body armor doubles your chances of surviving against enemy forces. It
      cost money, but it's worth it compared to what you have to pay the cops or
      the hospital bills when you die. Buy it from underground gunstores, get it
      cheaper from Little Jacob or find it free in some hidden places.
    
    Stealing cars
      Take a look around you before you steal a parked car. If some cops are close,
      wait until they leave. Unless you want their attention. It may be fun getting
      them chasing you, but sometimes you just want to drive around without some
      cops hunting you.
      Same thing with manned cars. Unless you need a car really fast, wait until
      the police is away to keep running to another street. Some drivers will try
      to take back their vehicles so be sure that you can drive away fast. It's not
      a good idea to try stealing a car that's stuck in a traffic jam. If you are
      holding a weapon while stealing a car, it's a smaller chance that the driver
      will try to take back the vehicle.
    
    Weapons weapons weapons
      It is always a good idea to have some type of weapons. You never know when
      you need one, either in a mission or if you want to kill some random ped.
      The fastest way to get some is to buy them from a underground gunstore.
      Or buy most of them cheaper from Little Jacob. Sometimes you can get weapons
      when you kill peds or enemies. And you get 5 shotgun shells when you enter a
      policecar. Or search for hidden stashes all over the city.
    
    Explore the city
      Explore the city. You will find some nice hiding places. Or sniping places.
      Or hidden gun/bodyarmor stashes. Or see something happening. Or learn the
      fastest way from point A to point B. Or secret packages.
    
    Save your game
      ALWAYS go to your safehouse and save before you turn off your system. Even
      if you have autosave enabled.
      It exist 12 ordinary savefiles and one autosave file. The autosave file is
      used for all players. So if you played 20 missions and only used autosave and
      your brother starts to play the game... Opsie, autosave after the first
      mission, your lost for being stupid and not saved on a real save slot.
    
    Keep your friends close
      You will meet different friends and girlfriends while playing the game. Most
      of them will give you some kind of reward if you keep their friendlevel high
      enough. Like free taxi rides. Or cheaper weapons. Or...
      You can always call them on your phone and go out on a date with them. If
      you stay away too long from them, their friendlevel will drop and they will
      call you. If you know that you really don't have time with them, don't say no
      to a date. Say yes and call them back and cancel the date. Your friendlevel
      will not drop this way. If you say no or miss the date, it will go down
      however.
    
    Play minigames
      Take a break from the game and play minigames from time to time. Take your
      dates out and play minigames. Or play the puzzle arcade game called QUB3D.
    
    Take the taxi
      The fastest way from point A to point B is to take the taxi. Unless it's a
      really short way. Either call Roman for a free ride or take a yellow one.
      You can put a mark on your map anywhere an the map and the taxi will take you
      there. Or close to it. And if you press the A button, it will just take a
      moment. It will cost some more, but it's worth it.
    
    The cops are your friends... and your enemy...
      The police will try to arrest you if they see you doing something bad. And
      they will try to help you if they see somebody attack you. You can always
      call the cops with your phone with the number 911. Or if you are in a
      policecar, you can access the police computer to call for backup. Just be
      sure to not shoot while they are coming...
    
    Cash
      Getting cash is easy. Do missions, do sidejobs for Roman or Little Jacob,
      kill random peds and steal their cash, wait at a ATM machine for some random
      ped to take out cash before killing them...
      Food, clothes, guns, bodyarmor, it always exist something to waste your cash
      on. Always keep some cash in case you need some.
    
    Busted or killed?
      If the cops takes you, you will loose some cash and your weapons. Or you are
      killed, you will loose some money and keep your guns. It's your choice if
      you want to search for new weapons all the time...

    IX. FAQ
    
    Here are questions that people have send in to me, and other questions that I
    know that people will ask...
    
    01: Where is the Custom Soundtracks Radio station?
     A: It does not exist. You have to hit your Xbox Guide button in order to play
       your own music.
    
    02: How do I use the Xbox Guide Button?
     A: You read your Xbox 360 manual.
    
    03: XBOX GUIDE SUCKS!!!! I WANT REAL CUSTOM RADIO STATIONS!!!!
     A: You can't. If you don't like it, don't play the game.
    
    04: I don't like Michelle. She hates my clothes. Can I kill her?
     A: ...I love this country... when you don't like somebody, the first thing
        that pops up in your head is to kill her... If you don't like her, stop
        dating her. Problem solved.
    
    05: Can I System Link this game?
     A: No.
    
    06: I don't like your FAQ. It sucks!!!!
     A: Then don't use it. problem solved.
    
    07: The cars sucks in this game. Why did R* fail at this?
     A: They did'nt. It's you that failed. The vehicle physics are more realistic
        in this game. Try driving 110 Mph in real life and make perfect handbrake
        turnings in every corner. Give it some time and you will learn how to
        compensate by oversteering and other things.
    
    08: Republican Space Rangers are the worst crap I have ever seen. It lied about
        what we do in Iraq!!!
     A: Republican Space Rangers are a satire about 3 stereotype rangers in space.
        So unless US forces in Iraq happens to be stupid homosexual rednecks that
        can't understand words that's longer than 5 letters that rides around in
        space in a cockspaceship shooting everything that moves to save America,
        you are looking too much into it. You probably have problems with the
        politic yourself because you do everything to search for something to bash
        it on.
    
    09: Where is all the blood? It's not a GTA game without blood!!!
     A: The game have blood. It's just that it's not as much as earlier games.
        It fits better in the more realistic world we have in GTAIV.
    
    10: Stop lying, there are no blood!!!
     A: Stand next to somebody that you shoot. You will get blood on the camera.
        Drive over somebody or get hit by a car. Look where it got hit. Blood
        stains on the vehicle.
    
    11: Where are the paramedic and firefighter missions?
     A: They got cut.
    
    12: Which version should I get? Xbox 360 or PS3?
     A: The difference between them are slightly. You need to install a part of
        the game on the PS3, which you can't on the 360. It looks a little better
        on a PS3 in my eyes, but it's no big deal. So look at your friends. How
        many of them have GTAIV on which system. Then choose the one which have
        most friends that will play online.
        ...yes, the Xbox 360 will get two exclusive DLC that are supposed to be
        believed to add 10 hours++ gameplay each. But those are not released yet.
        And future DLC can be made for both systems.
    
    13: Do cheat make it impossible to get 100%?
     A: No.
    
    14: Do cheats disable achievements?
     A: Some does. They will tell you which they disables.
    
    15: My mom will not let me get this game, help me!!!!!!
     A: Your mom is doing her job. Wait until you are 17/18 years and you can buy
        it yourself.
    
    16: I'm 32 and my mom will not let me buy it!!!
     A: ...move out and get a life?
    
    17: How is this game on a SDTV?
     A: Perfect. It looks great on a 22" SDTV and all text are readable.
    
    18: What the heck is Little Jacob saying?
     A: He speaks Jamaican Patois. It's hard to hear for a untrained ear.
        Enable subtitles and read what he says and you will get most of it.
    
    19: You are kidding me... Little Jacob was bad, but the Badman????
     A: Badman rocks.
    
    20: I can't read that goddamn cellphone text!!!
     A: Too bad for you, I can read it perfectly.
    
    21: I have perfect eyes and I can still not read the text!!!
     A: I have glasses and I can see it perfectly on a 22" SDTV. Now begone.
    
    22: Shall I kill <X> or <Y>?
     A: It is YOU who plays the game. So YOU should choose who to kill. The story
        will go different depending on what you do. So kill the one you dislike
        most and the other one when you replay the game.
    
    23: I'm lazy, I will sell the game after completing it once. Tell me who I

    25: **** you, tell me what I earn most on!!!!
     A: ...no. You have to discover that yourself.
    
    26: Where can I get a new knife? I replaced it with a bat earlier on and now I
        cannot find a knife again. I've checked the gun shops but I only recall
        seeing a bat in addition to the guns...
     A: Raise your friend level with Little Jacob until you can buy weapons from
        him. He will sell a knife.
    
    27: Can you mod cars?
     A: No.

     A: No.
    
    30: WHY DID THEY REMOVE EVERYTHING THAT WAS SO GREAT IN SAN ANDREAS!??!?!?!?!?!
     A: Because Niko seems to be a guy that don't need to get more muscles, a
        haircut, some tattoos or getting fat. And he does'nt seem to care about
        modded cars as well...
    
    31: But we can level up our weapons skill, right?
     A: Nope. Niko is already great with weapons.

        your TV settings.
    
    34: I can't find anything, how do I fix it?
     A: Does it look like I know what kind of TV you have? Read the manual. Buy
        a new TV.
    
    35: How you get rid of weapons to get into the strip club?
     A: Press left/right on your Dpad until you equip your fists.
    
    36: Why did they attack me in the stripclub?
     A: Because you walked in with your weapons equipped. Or you tried to walk on
        the stage which is offlimit. Or you hit somebody.
    
    37: Where are the kids?
     A: R* will never allow kids in GTA games. Killing kids is too strong even for
        R*.
    
    38: I can't do <insert random thing> but I'm supposed to do, help!!??!?!
     A: If it's something you have earned from a friend, raise their friendship
        level. If it's a mission or something else, keep playing the game to unlock
        it.
    
    39: I was looking on the internet cafe and it said that they had new themes
        for your phone but when i click on it it says my phone is not compatible?

    42: Where are the gloves? I see them in all trailers and on the back of the
        box...
     A: Either R* removed them from the final build. Or made it impossible to
        access them. Or they are some secret clothes that nobody have found yet.
        Or they will be aviable in a future DLC.
    
    43: I've cheated and I'm stuck at 97%. YOU LIED!!!!

    44: Hey, I have some nice hints about this and that mission...
