There are a million stories in Liberty City.  This one changes everything.  
Once a trusted wise guy in the Leone crime family, Toni Cipriani was forced 
into hiding after killing a made man.  Now he's back and it's time for things 
to be put right.

The streets of Liberty City are in turmoil.  Warring Mafiosi vie for control 
as the town begins to self-destruct under waves of political corruption, 
organized crime, drug trafficking and union strikes.  No one can be trusted as 
Toni tries to clean up mess of the city's chaotic underworld.  Deranged hit 
men, morally depraved tycoons, cynical politicians and his own mother stand in
his way as Toni tries to bring the city under Leone control.

Forced to fight for his life in an odyssey that will shake Liberty City to its
foundations, Toni must use any means necessary to secure his place in the 
leadership of the Leone family.

This is where all the stuff goes about not stealing my FAQ and claiming it as 
your own,not putting my FAQ up on your site without permission et cetera, but 
to be honest, I can'treally enforce anything I say here.  I trust you guys.

The truth is, I've worked very hard on this so people could use it, so if you 
want to use my FAQ, just contact me at

or know the location of the 100th hidden package that I might be missing, by 
all means send it in.  I will give you full credit for your find (just be sure
to include your GameFAQS user name) so there is no reason to be shy about it.

Anyway, I know you're probably bored of scrolling through this, and even more 
bored if you are reading it, so let's move on.  Enjoy the FAQ, I hope it helps.

If you haven't already done so, you're going to have to update your PSP 
firmware (version 2.00) in order to play Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City 
Stories.  If you have no idea what that means, don't worry, its simple.  First
off, you need the AC Adaptor and its power cord that came with the PSP(or in 
my case, the one that cost $34.99 at EB Games because I lost it ;().  Plug in 
your PSP to the nearest outlet using the AC Adaptor and choose upgrade option 
on the PSP home screen. Alternatively, selecting the UMD option will prompt you
to update, so either way works.  Downloading only takes a minute, you get a 
free wireless web browser, and more importantly, the ability to play GTA:LCS.

While most people believe GTA was designed to be enjoyed on a home console, I 
think Rockstar did a tremendous job in creating a new adventure for a portable
platform.  However, without a large analog thumbstick, the action can sometimes
be hard to control.  Some people, like myself, have adjusted to the smaller 
thumbstick the PSP provides.  However, if you find it frustratingly difficult 
to navigate the streets of Liberty City, I would suggest investing in the 
analog stick attachments by Naki.  Alternatively, youcan change controls to 
the D-Pad via the options menu, but I wouldn't recommend it.

Now on to the controls.

                        ****************************

Grand Theft Auto introduces a fantastic batch of new characters, and also 
features some welcome series veterans, one of which is the main character.

TONI CIPRIANI (voiced by Danny Mastrogiorgio)
The main character of GTA:LCS, you control Toni as he moves up the ranks of 
the Leone crime family.  You remember him from GTA III as the guy who lived 
with his mom and gave you various jobs to do.  However, Toni is anything but a
momma's boy.  

SALVATORE LEONE (voiced by Frank Vincent)
The don of the Leone crime family.  Salvatore is as fair a man as a mafioso 
crime lord can be, and is certainly a good friend to have.

MARIA LATORE (voiced by Fiona Gallagher)
Salvatore's trophy wife who seemingly has relations with everyone but.  Taking
care of Maria during her ODs and other episodes is part of Toni's job.  She 
claims to be in love with Toni, but this could just be either the drugs talking
or Maria's obvious easiness.

JD O'TOOLE (voiced by Greg Wilson)
JD is an obese pervert who runs a strip joint in the Red Light District.  JD 
starts the game working for the Sindaccos, but is actually attempting to fall 
in with the Leones.

VINCENZO CILLI (voiced by Joe Latruglio)
Apparently some sort of capo for the Leone crime family.  He is charged with 
bossing Toni around towards the beginning of the game, but he appears to have 
some sort of different agenda.

MA CIPRIANI (voiced by Sondra James)
Toni's mom.  We never see her, but she sends us on some missions while in 
Portland.  She shuns Toni for not being as tough as his father, regardless of
how hard Toni tries to impress her.

OTHER MINOR CHARACTERS

JANE HOPPER (voiced by Gordana Rashovich)
A union boss who is starting to piss Salvatore off.  She may play a larger role 
later in the game.

WAYNE (voice actor unknown) 
Maria's boyfriend.  Part of a biker gang that gets wiped out by Toni early on.

MICKEY HAMFISTS (voiced by Chris Tardio)
A Leone family thug.

GIOVANNI CASA (voiced by Joel Jones)
A real man according to Ma Cipriani, Casa in nothing but a pervert deli owner.

8-BALL (voiced by Guru)
A familiar face from GTA III, 8-BALL runs the car-bomb garage in Harwood.

                        ****************************

The radio has always been one of my favorite parts of Grand Theft Auto.  The 
full-fledged radio stations with DJs, call-ins, interviews, station 
identfication et cetera never ceases to amaze me.  Not to mention the great 
licensed soundtracks of each GTA (with the next-gen exception of GTA III).  
GTA: LCS doesn't dissapoint with its radio selection either.

CUSTOM SOUNDTRACKS - by Sights Unseen II *
******************************************

Technique one:
Requirements: PSP EAC.

You need to use the PSP EAC.

http://www.mobiledeviant.com/forum/downloads.php?do=file&id=149

Just download that, after its finished, rename the file by adding .zip to it.
Unzip, install, reboot, and open the program. All you need to do is usb connect
your psp, drag any and all your mp3s to the EAC window, it compresses, then go
into your psp custom tracks folder and rename all the files to .gta

It will make your future conversions easier.

If you haven't downloaded the RCT, you'll need to manually make a custom track
folder in your saved data folder. The proper folder name is

ULUS10041CUSTOMTRACKS

This method didn't work for me, but it's been tested and does work. The second
method has worked for just about everyone.

Method 2:
Requirements: Windows Media, Nero, Daemon, RCT.

1. Connect PSP to computer via USB Mode.
2. Open Windows Media Player
3. Click File > New Playlist. Select the songs you want in GTA. Save playlist 
as gta or whatever you want.
4. After you select your songs, highlight them, right click, and choose Copy 
to CD or Device.
5. Since you have Nero, under Items on Device choose "Nero Fast CD-Burning 
Plug-in or something similar.
6. The status on the songs should change to Ready to copy. Click on copy on the
upper right corner and Nero should open.
7. When the Nero pop up appears, under Current recorder choose Image Recorder. 
After that click burn.
8. Save it wherever you please.
9. When it's done burning, exit Nero and open Daemon.
10. When you open Daemon (if it doesn't open just right click it on the taskbar 
in the system tray), it'll ask you to select a new image. Select your playlist
you saved.
11. Take no action if the computer asks you to.
12. Now open Rockstar Custom Tracks. When it's open switch it to Generic 
DVD-Rom. Your songs should appear as Track01, Track02, etc.
13. Rename them if you please.
14. On the left side there should be a CD with an arrow. Click it. Make sure 
no songs are playing in the program or are highlighted. If a song is 
highlighted it will only copy that one. So if one is highlighted just click 
the white background in the program.
15. Once clicked a pop up called "Game Selection" will pop up. GTA: Liberty 
City Stories (US) will be among the choices. Obviously, choose that one.
16. Extracting begins. >_>
17. When extracting finishes close the program, disconnect the PSP from the 
USB connection, turn on the PSP, turn on the game.
18. When the game starts up, pause it, go to Audio, go to Custom Tracks and
select On.

You're done.

Finally we come to the meat and potatoes of this FAQ, the walkthrough of Grand
Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories.  Here you will find out how to progress 
through the game if you are stuck, and learn useful tips for beating the harder
missions.

To send in alternate strategies to be included in the Walkthrough, email me at 
timyac@hvc.rr.com.  You will recieve full recognition.

This walkthrough is meant to aid you on all missions as they become available,
and does not necessarily highlight the most direct route through the game.  
Part of the fun of GTA is take it on at your own pace.

Spoilers will be included in the walkthrough when unavoidable (ex. kill so and
so), but will be clearly marked.  

When ranking a mission's overall difficulty, I take into account not only how 
hard it is to complete the task, but also how difficult the mission is in 
comparison to the rest.  One extremely tough mission will lower the difficulty
ratings of the others.  Difficulty ratings may flucuate as I progress into the
game.  Mission difficulty is ranked out of 5.

MISSIONS

PORTLAND

PROLOGUE 
Difficulty: *
Reward: $100

This is just and easy mission to get in touch with the controls.  After the 
opening cutscene, simply drive Vincenzo to each waypoint, the first being your
hideout.  This apartment will serve as you save point for the first portion of
the game.  After the quick hideout tutorial, use the t-shirt icon to change 
into the Leone suit and rejoin Vincenzo in the car.  Now drive Vincenzo's place
in Atlantic Quays to drop him off and complete the misson.

NOTE: BEATING THIS MISSION OPENS THE VINCENZO STRAND OF MISSIONS.

                        ****************************

SLACKER
Difficulty: *
Reward: $100
Prerequisite: Beat the mission "Prologue"

Vincenzo's first mission is an easy one.  Watch the cutscene where Vincenzo
informs you that a Leone dealer is bringing in much money.  Its your job to
make sure he starts bringing in some dough.  Once you gain control of Toni, 
hijack a vehicle and follow the yellow blip on the map until you reach the 
dealer.  A quick scene will occur and the dealer will get into your car.  A 
new yellow blip on the map appears at this point.  Simply drive the dealer to 
this blip without him somehow dying to complete the mission.

DEALING REVENGE
Difficulty: *
Reward: $500
Prerequisite: Beat the Vincenzo mission "Slacker"

Apparently the dealer had good reason to be afraid.  In the cutscene you learn
the dealer you dropped off has already been killed, and it's up to you to
avenge his death.  Grab a car and head to the map blip.  Once there, prepare
for your introduction to hand-to-hand combat.  Hold R to target the rival 
dealers and O to punch their heads in.  Beat all 3 dealers to death or simply
run them over to pass another easy mission.

NOTE: BEATING THIS MISSION UNLOCKS THE CAR SALESMAN SUB-MISSION

SNUFF
Difficulty: **
Reward: $500
Prerequisite: Beat the Vincenzo mission "Dealing Revenge"

This is probably the first mission that's possible to fail, though doing so 
isn't very likely.  After watching the cutscene, drive yourself to Ammu-Nation 
to pick up a gun.  Take the pistol, courtesy if Vincenzo.  Be sure to not 
accidentally fire your new weapon by pressing O will inside the store, or the
guy behind the desk will shoot you and most likely kill you.  Exit the store
and take note of the Ammu-Nation icon that appears on the map.  You can follow 
this back to get more guns at any time.  Drive to the yellow blip on your map, 
a construction site, equip your pistol, and enter.  Hold down the R button and 
use O to shoot one of the two guards.  While still holding R, tap right or left 
on the D-Pad to target the other guard.  Shoot him and proceed through the 
tunnel.  On the other side you can use the R button and the analog stick to 
manually aim and shoot the explosive barrels, or simply kill the two guards 
normally.  Move on and kill the slightly tougher guy by the car and pick up his
cell phone.  Take the car and you will be prompted to take it to the 
Pay-And-Spray.  Do as you're told and bring the car to get sprayed.  Like 
Ammu-Nation, the spraying is free for this mission, but will cost money in the 
future.  Once you get the car sprayed, the mission is over, but take the time 
to note the Pay-And-Spray icon for future use.

Afterwards, you should get a call on your phone from a guy called JD.

NOTE: BEATING THIS MISSION OPENS UP THE JD MISSION STRAND

SMASH AND GRAB
Difficulty: **
Reward: $1000
Prerequisite: Beat the Vincenzo mission "Snuff"

Watch the cutscene where Vincenzo explains how his guys have botched a simple 
job at the gas station.  Its your job to save the guys, and you need a 4 seat 
vehicle to get them all out.  I personally like to use a Rumpo van because its 
cooler for the guys to jump in the back and they are often found near 
Vincenzo's place, but any 4 seater will do.  Get a suitable car and head 
towards the blip representing the gas station.  There is a blue bar 
representing the health of your men, but they survive plenty long enough.  Get 
to the gas station and eliminate the cops nearby before making your rescue, so 
that way no bullets hit a gas tank and kill you and your men.  After picking up 
the guys, haul but for the nearby Pay-And-Spray from last mission with your new 
3 star wanted level.  Get the car sprayed to reduce your level to 3 blinking 
stars.  In this level cops won't chase you, but if you do anything wrong the
cops will be after you again.  Drive carefully until the stars dissapear 
completely and bring the men back to Vincenzo to complete the mission.

HOT WHEELS
Difficulty: ***
Reward: None
Prerequisite: Beat the Vincenzo mission "Smash and Grab"

Vincenzo informs Toni of a nearby car loaded with drugs that he wants you to 
take car of.  Follow the blip to the car, a Banshee in a large alleyway, and 
enter it.  A cutscene occurs with the cops coming towards you and Toni realizes
its a trap.  Make your way to the Pay-And-Spray again with a 3 star wanted 
level.  Once safe, follow the new objective of bringing the car to Vincenzo's 
lockup.  Drive over to the garage and watch the cutscene.  Toni is tired of 
Vincenzo, and he's gonna make a point by destroying his car and drugs.  Bring 
the car to the crusher highlighted on the map and park the car in the yellow 
marker.  Once the crane drops the car into the crusher, the mission is over, 
and you get a call from your momma.

Viscenzo's missions are over for the time being. 

NOTE: BEATING THIS MISSION OPENS UP THE MA CIPRIANI MISSION STRAND

THE PORTLAND CHAINSAW MASQUERADE
Difficulty: ****
Reward: $3000
Prerequisite: Beat the JD mission "The Made Man"

THIS MISSION WALKTHROUGH CONTAINS SPOILERS!!!

Vincenzo calls after you beat "The Made Man" and wants to make amends with you. 
Pay him a visit via his V icon to start this mission.  Once at his place, you 
recieve a cell phone call redirecting you to the boat at the Portland Docks.  
It can be confusing to get to the boat, but its actually rather easy.  Starting
from the door of Vincenzo's hideout looking out, go right, but instead of 
to curve stay straight and drive onto the gray area and past a few trees.
Proceed down the dock from here and you will see the boat.

Enter the boat, and bypass the first hallway on the right but be sure to check
out the second to score a Python, which will be very helpful.  Also be sure to
grab the body armor at the bottom of the stairs if you need it, before entering
the hull.  Once inside the hull, a short scene occurs and you're attacked by 
numerous guys with chainsaws.  Take them out with the Python without letting 
the room get too crowded.  Once they are all dead, Vincenzo appears.  Take him 
out however you see fit and exit the boat to end this mission.

BONE VOYUER
Difficulty: *
Reward: $500
Prerequisite: Beat the Vincenzo mission "Snuff"

JD's hoes are holding out on him!  JD is owed $700, and it's your job to help 
him collect it before his hookers get off their shift.  

Drive around until JD spots a hooker and collect her cash.  Variations of 
collecting the cash are having to deal with clients in their cars, and rival 
pimps stealing your hooker's dough.  Just beep the horn at the cars to get the
hookers out and run over the pimps to have them drop the cash.  You should have
plenty of time to collect the cash before the end of the shift.

DON IN 60 SECONDS
Difficulty: *
Reward: None
Prerequisite: Beat the JD mission "Bon Voyuer"

This mission is much easier than you'd expect.  Its your job to get Salvatore 
out of the strip joint as the cops raid it.  Once you get in the car, travel 
the extremely short distance to the Pay-And-Spray, and then just drive 
Salvatore home.  Nothing to it.

NOTE: BEATING THIS MISSION OPENS UP THE SALVATORE MISSION STRAND
NOTE: BEATING THIS MISSION MAKES THE SMG AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE AT AMMU-NATION

A VOLATILE SITUATION
Difficulty: ****
Reward: $1000
Prerequisite: Beat the JD mission "Don in 60 Seconds"

This will definitely be the hardest mission you've played so far.  You need a 
decent cache of guns, so be sure to pick up a newly available SMG at 
Ammu-Nation if you need it.  

Once your equipped make your way to the casino the Sindacco's plan to blow up. 
You're going to have to take on three waves of Sindacco thugs.   Make note of 
the health pickup in the adjacent alleyway if you should need it.  Dispatch the
first two waves as they appear.  One guy in each wave will attempt set a bomb 
by the casino, so make him your top priorty, because if he sets it, there is no 
way to diffuse it.  The casino can only survive one bomb going off, you will 
fail if two bombs successfully detonate.  The third waves of Sindaccos will 
come in a Patriot.  Kill them the same way.  The fourth wave comes in a bomb 
rigged truck.  Once they get out of the vehicle, hijack it and haul it away 
from the casino.  The car is stuck in a low gear but you can still get it a 
safe distance (use the blue bar) before getting out and getting the hell out 
of there.  After the truck explodes a safe distance away, the mission is over.

BLOW UP 'DOLLS'
Difficulty: **
Reward: $1500
Prerequisite: Beat the JD mission "A Volatile Situation"

It's time for revenge.  You're going to blow up a Sindacco joint, and its 
easiest if you use the Sindacco car parked right outside JD's bar.  Take the 
car to 8-Balls place marked on the map and get a bomb installed.  Drive to the 
Sindacco's club carefully, making sure to keep the car damage meter down and 
the bomb safely unexploded :).  If you are using the Sindacco car, the guards 
will let you drive right in, otherwise they will shoot at you.  Drive the car 
into the parking garage and run a safe distance away.  The guards will 
probably shoot at you now, but they will all die as soon as you hit the 
detonator, which is automatically selected and used with O. 

SALVATORE'S SALVATION
Difficulty: ***
Reward: $1500
Prerequisite: Beat the Salvatore mission "Contra-Banned"

Watch the cutscene to learn that Salvatore has been kidnapped by Sindacco's 
while leaving the club.  JD notices one of the kidnappers and sets you on the 
task of following him.  Follow the Sindacco a short distance to where they are 
holding Salvatore  The Sindaccos are planning to crush the car with Salvatore 
in it, and its your job to stop them.

Follow the Sindaccos and ram their car until they get out.  This can be 
difficult, so alternatively you can wait until they get the car under the 
crusher and exit the vehicle.  Make a mad dash and enter the Sindacco car and 
peel away before the crane grabs it.  Afterwards just drive Salvatore back to 
his mansion and watch the cutscene to end the mission. 

THE GUNS OF LEONE
Difficulty: *
Reward: $3000
Prerequisite: Beat the JD mission "Salvatore's Salvation"

The game makes this mission much harder than it has to be.  Salvatore is coming
down to the Red Light District for revenge on the Sindaccos.  Its your job to 
make sure he isn't killed, and the game gives him a generous life bar.

Start the mission by using the stairs in the alley across the street to get the
sniper rifle.  Enter the yellow marked vantage point and Salvatore will appear. 
The game wants you to snipe the attacking Sindaccos, but it is much easier to 
just drop down to the street and eliminate them with a normal gun because they 
are shooting at Salvatore and not you.  Kill the Sindaccos and the two cops 
that show up, and follow Salvatore into the back entrance of the strip joint to 
pass the mission.

CALM BEFORE THE STORM
Difficulty: *** 1/2
Reward: $1000
Prerequisite: Beat the JD mission "The Guns of Leone"

Toni is informed about a guy named Massimo, who may be a snitch.  You need to 
get to Salvatore's house before he leaves.  Once you get there, watch the scene
of Massimo entering his helicopter.  Follow the slow moving helicopter to a 
meeting with the Diablos, and then to a rooftop meeting with the Triads.  Get 
up on the roof and watch the short scene.  Eventually, your seen and Massimo 
escapes.  Kill the attacking Triads on the roof with you, being especially wary 
of the sniper rifle wielding one.  After killing them, snipe the Triads on the 
ground.  This can be frustrating, so you may have to go down the stairs.  Use 
the health if necessary, and kill all the Triads to complete the mission.

THE MADE MAN
Difficulty: **
Reward: $1500
Prerequisite: Beat the JD mission "Calm Before the Storm" 

THIS MISSION WALKTHROUGH CONTAINS SPOILERS!!!

Wow, this is a sad mission.  In the cutscene, Toni meets up with a very excited
and dressed up JD to drive him to his ceremony.  JD is gonna be a made man.  
Anyway, you're joined by a thug named Mickey, presumably to help you out.  
Drive towards the yellow blip until you are attacked by Sindacco assassins.  
Protect JD by running over the 4 Sindaccos, and then continue on to the 
ceremony by the car crusher.

Wait?  The car crusher?  Not a great spot for a ceremony.  An excited and 
oblivious JD promises the first drinks before Mickey shoots him in the back of 
the head.  Mickey tells you to take him home and dump the car in the river.  

The problem is, your car is leaving a trail of blood, and whenever a cop sees 
it, its an automatic two star wanted level that not even a trip to the 
Pay-And-Spray can take care of.  Drop Mickey at his house and drive towards the 
river (the really big water supply ;)).  Drive at the river and hit triangle to 
bail out.  The car will keep going into the water and the mission is complete.

THE OFFER
Difficulty: ***
Reward: $500
Prerequisite: Beat the JD mission "Don In 60 Seconds"

This isn't really as hard a mission as the stars suggest.  It can just easily 
take a turn for the worst and become frustrating.  

Salvatore wants you to bring some money to union boss Jane Hopper down at the 
docks.  After a short cutscene, you are surrounded by 4 thugs, with a few 
others strewn about.  If you can get away from the initial 4 however, you 
should be OK.  The frustrating part is getting knocked down by one of the thugs 
and getting kicked to death...not fun.  You shouldn't attempt to fight back, 
just sprint up to the street to escape and end the mission.


                        ****************************
                     Alternate Strategy by Justin Myers

This mission was incredibly annoying till I got smart. BEFORE going to the 
checkpoint, grab a PCJ-600 or other motorcycle (NOT a car, you need 
manuverability and acceleration!) and go off the unique jump near Salvatore's 
(The one with the police bribe) and park your bike near the boxes (where you 
will be "spawned" during the cutscene). Hop off, and run to the checkpoint. At
this point, before you trigger the checkpoint, the strikers will still try to
kill you, but not with molotovs, etc. If you did it right, you'll hit the check
point, trigger the cutscene, run out of the boxes, hop on your ride, and haul 
ass outta there. Easy as pie.

                        ****************************

HO SELECTA!
Difficulty: **
Reward: $500
Prerequisite: Beat the Salvatore mission "The Offer"

Salvatore wants you to get some picketers on his side.  In order to do this, 
you need to drop off 6 hookers at the dock before the picketers' shifts are 
over.  Grab the Sentinel outside Sal's house and pick up 3 hookers, they 
are marked with a blue icon on the map.  You will be prompted to bring them to 
the docks, so do so, its marked by a yellow blip.  After dropping them off, 
repeat the process to beat the mission.  You should have plenty of time.

FRIGHTENERS
Difficulty: **
Reward: $1000
Prerequisite: Beat the Salvatore mission "Ho Selecta!"

Salvatore wants you to help him out by scaring the bajeezus out of a couple 
union bosses.  Follow the red blips to each of the three bosses and ram their 
car.  Eventually, they will get out of the car and give up, but they may need 
the extra help of your fist in their skull to make up their mind.  Once all 
three bosses are scared, the mission is over and you get a phone call from 
Maria, Salvatore's wife.

NOTE: BEATING THIS MISSION OPENS UP THE MARIA STRAND OF MISSIONS

ROLLERCOASTER RIDE
Difficulty: *
Reward: $1000
Prerequisite: Beat the Salvatore mission "Frighteners"

This is an easy mission.  Salvatore wants you to scare Jane Hopper into 
submission.  Ms. Hopper is currently be interviewed at the Head Radio building,
so jump in a car and follow the blip to its location.  Once there, dispose of 
her chaffuer and you will steal his clothes.  Get in the car and wait for 
Hopper.  Once she's in, just drive around really fast, go off jumps, and crash 
into stuff until Hopper is scared.  Just avoid setting the limo on fire or 
crashing into water and this should be easy.  After she submits, follow the 
new yellow blip to the picket lines and drop her off to complete the mission.

CONTRA-BANNED
Difficulty: ***
Reward: $1000
Prerequisite: Beat the Maria mission "Overdose of Trouble"

After the cutscene, grab the Sentinel outside and follow the blue blips to pick 
up some backup.  After picking up all three guys, follow the yellow blip to the
docks.  Note the location of the police bribe on the way to the back of the 
docks.  Before entering the yellow marker, grab the body armor if you need it,
because there is gonna be a bit of shooting.  After the cutscene, you have a 
three star wanted level, so shoot the guy directly in front of you and hop into
the Patriot.  THIS PATRIOT IS KEY TO THE MISSION, IT CAN'T BE DESTROYED OR YOU 
FAIL.  Wheel the car around and exit the docks the opposite direction the car 
was facing, picking up the police bribe on the way.  This gives you a two star 
wanted level for the drive to the Pay-And-Spray, making it considerably easier.
After spraying the car, bring it to Sal's garage to complete the mission.

SINDACCO SABOTAGE
Difficulty: ****
Reward: $1500
Prerequisite: Beat the Vincenzo mission "The Portland Chainsaw Masquerade"

For this mission, you're gonna need guns, lots of them.  Pick up the weapons
Salvatore gives you if you need them, and then shoot down to the blip on your 
map.  Pull out your best gun and just start firing, you're gonna need to kill
about 20 Diablos.  The reason this mission can get tough is the Leone's 
inability to stay alive.  Once you drop under 10 guys, you'll get a message 
everytime one dies.  If they all die you fail.  There is really no strategy to
this, just keep moving and firing.  Once all the Diablos fall, answer your cell 
phone to complete the mission.

THE TROUBLE WITH TRIADS
Difficulty: ****
Reward: $1500
Prerequisite: Beat the Salvatore mission "Sindacco Sabotage"

Salvatore trusts only you to go down to his warehouse and pick up a large sum 
of money.  Get a vehicle and follow the yellow blip.  Once at the warehouse, 
watch the cutscene.  You get a generous amount of time to collect the money 
while dealing with the flames and an endless supply of Triad thugs.  Your first
priority is to avoid the fire.  One wrong step and you're toast.  Collect all 
the money and then get a vehicle.  Exit the warehouse through the blown up wall
and return to Salvatore's mansion to beat the mission.

An odd thing I noticed in this mission that may not always be there is the 
Banshee from this mission's opening cutscene crashed into a tree in Salvatore's
driveway.  I thought this was odd.

DRIVING MR. LEONE
Difficulty: *** 
Reward: $4000
Prerequisite: Beat the Salvatore mission "The Trouble With Triads"

Watch the cutscene to learn Salvatore wants out of Portland.  Grab a trusty car
and bring Salvatore to the ferries.  Before you get to the yellow marker, hit 
the handbrake to spin the car into the yellow marker backwards.  Once the cops 
swarm, you get a headstart on your three star wanted level by hauling ass in 
the other direction.  Hit up the Pay-And-Spray, although the game tells you it 
won't work, the cops never bothered me after it.  Afterwards, drive to the 
Callahan Bridge, get some speed, and go off the jump to reach Staunton Island.  
Once there, watch the news report, and then drive Salvatore to your new safe 
house to complete the mission.

SHOP 'TILL YOU STROP
Difficulty: **
Reward: $100
Prerequisite: Beat the Salvatore mission "Frighteners"

Your first mission for Maria is to drive her around town so she can "shop".  
Apparently Maria doesn't want to pay for any of this however.  Drop her off at 
the first store and then ditch the one star wanted level you get for the 
shoplift.  Bring Maria to the next store, which has probably the best security 
system ever.  After dodging the shotgun wielding shop-owner, evade the cops, 
and attempt to survive with you're three star wanted level.  This means 
choppers and spike strips, what the hell did she steal?  You can stop by the 
Pay-And-Spray if you want, but I recommend going straight to Maria's house and
dropping her off to complete the mission.

TAKEN FOR A RIDE
Difficulty: **
Reward: $500
Prerequisite: Beat the Maria mission "Shop 'Till You Strop"

Maria wants you to drive her to her dealers, so do so.  Once you pull up behind
the dealers, there's a quick scene and Maria gets kidnapped.  Chase and ram the
the kidnappers' car without letting them get to far away.  If you can trap them
against a wall they will get out and open fire.  Just run the kidnappers' over 
or get out and use your guns, whichever you prefer, although the former is 
preferable.  After they are out of the way, drive Maria home to complete the 
mission. 

BOOBY PRIZE
Difficulty: **
Reward: None
Prerequisite: Beat the Maria mission "Taken for a Ride"

You enter to find Maria's place empty, but get a message telling you that she 
has put herself up as the first place prize in a street race.  Obviously, this 
bit of info might piss Salvatore off, so find yourself a bike and head to the 
starting line to make sure Maria doesn't end up with some dirtbag.  I unlike 
most people prefer to use and recommend the Sanchez for this mission.  It has 
better handling than the PCJ and speed isn't really a factor as the other 
racers tend to move slowly.  You should be able to breeze past the other racers
on the straightaway past the diner, and the Sanchez gives you a distinct 
advantage while navigating the city streets.  You can afford at least one 
cataclysmic crash and still win with plenty of time to spare.  In the cutscene 
after you win, take note of Maria's boyfriend, Wayne.

BIKER HEAT
Difficulty: ***
Reward: $1500

Remember Wayne?  Turns out beating women "revs his engine" as Toni says, and 
Maria is his latest victim.  Get an SMG and head down to Chinatown to get some 
payback.  After the scene, kill the bikers and hop on one of their rides.  You 
have to kill Wayne, but just keeping up with him can be frustrating, so I 
recommend driving carefully behind him and avoiding crashes.  Eventually he'll 
get off his bike back in Chinatown.  Take note of his very large gun and kill 
him to complete the mission.

OVERDOSE OF TROUBLE
Difficulty: **
Reward: None
Prerequisite: Beat the Maria mission "Biker Heat"

Ever seen Pulp Fiction?  In a similar scene, we find Maria (Mia?) overdosing. 
It's up to you to help her find her "Zap", which she swears she left at the 
Callahan Diner.  Drive her there and watch the cutscene.  Wayne's gang members 
will now chase you to the new location of the zap, Hepburn Heights.  Wayne's
gang member's don't really do much, you should lose them without trying.
Once arriving at Hepburn Heights, Maria tells you that the zap is actually at 
her apartment.  Drive her there and she will tell you she is absolutely 
positive she left it at Salvatore's.  Once you arrive the mission is over, and 
you're finished with Maria's strand of missions, which nets you the badass 
GoodFellas suit as a reward.

                               MA CIPRIANI STRAND
                 Located in St. Marks (marked by C on Map)
                        ****************************

SNAPPY DRESSER
Difficulty: **
Reward: $100
Prerequisite: Beat the Vincenzo mission "Hot Wheels"

This is a pretty easy first mission for Ma.  After having his manhood 
questioned, Toni sets out to prove that real man Giovanni Casa is nothing but 
a no-good pervert.  Head to your safehouse to get a camera, then follow the 
blip to Casa's deli, and watch the scene.  After the scene, follow Casa's van 
to the woods under the Callahan Bridge.  Watch the scene, and then equip the 
camera and sneak up on Casa.  Don't get too close, the shot doesn't really have 
to be that good, just get Casa in a picture.  Head back to Ma's apartment to 
complete the mission.

BIG RUMBLE IN LITTLE CHINA
Difficulty: **
Reward: None
Prerequisite: Beat the Ma Cipriani mission "Snappy Dresser"

Ma says Toni's scared of Triads.  Prove her wrong by taking some out.  Follow 
the red blips to Chinatown, the large red blip is a Triad fish truck, and the 
smaller one is a group of armed Triads.  Go for the truck first, just ram it 
until the Triads jump out.  Run them over and collect their ammo, then exit 
your car and run past the barriers.  Dispose of the Triads the way you've been 
doing it all along, when the last one falls, the mission is over.

GREASE SUCHO
Difficulty: **
Reward: $1000
Prerequisite: Beat the Ma Cipriani mission "Big Rumble in Little China"

Apparently there's a lot of guys better than Toni, another one being some 
street racing punk named Sucho.  Once again you have to try to prove yourself 
to Ma, so get a fairly reliable car and head to the starting line.  The race is 
one lap and not that hard, just use your mini-map to see what's ahead.  After 
winning, watch the short scene.  Chase down Sucho, his car is marked with a red 
arrow and blip.  Trap him against a wall so he gets out, and then run him over. 
I kind of feel bad for the guy, but at least you've completed the mission!

DEAD MEAT
Difficulty: ***
Reward: $500
Prerequisite: Beat the Ma Cipriani mission "Grease Sucho"

THIS MISSION WALKTHROUGH CONTAINS SLIGHT SPOILERS

Seems Ma still prefers Casa to you.  He's stopped paying protection money and 
that takes balls.  It's your job to change this of course, and you can start by
picking up Casa at his deli.  Ignore the cops in the cutscene, they won't do 
anything.  Now, take Casa to the sawmill for a little "talk".  Once you get 
inside, watch the cutscene.  Afterwards, you have to kill Casa with just an 
axe, which can be tough because Casa's fast for his size.  He can't escape, so 
don't get worried, just hit him once to knock him down and hack him while he's 
on the ground.  After a gruesome cutscene, you have to evade the cops while 
bringing Casa's delivery van back to the deli.  Stop and the Pay-And-Spray to 
lose the heat, then go back to the deli with the van and watch the cutscene to 
complete this mission.

NO SON OF MINE
Difficulty: *****
Reward: None
Prerequisite: Beat the Ma Cipriani mission "No Son of Mine"

Ma's last mission is the hardest one this island has to offer.  Get all your 
guns together as well as some Body Armor and head to Ma's house.  After the 
cutscene, grab the shotgun and blast the guy on the stairs.  Go down the stairs 
and kill the remaining hitmen.  Get a good vantage point for the second wave 
and blast them as they exit their cars.  The third wave is tougher, they have 
SMGs.  Blast them while staying close to the health in case you need it.  The 
fourth and final wave is definitely the hardest, I actually beat them on 
accident, but what I did is a pretty good idea.  I planned to jump in a car and
book for the hospital to hole up with the health pickups, but the guys got 
there too fast.  I ran over one of the hitmen but their bullets set my car on 
fire.  I ran away and the explosion killed all but one, who I killed easily 
with the shotgun as he lay on the ground.  After the fourth wave is wiped out, 
the mission is over, and you get a message informing you that the hitmen will 
stay on your tail throughout the game.


                        ****************************
                     Alternate Strategy by Justin Myers

When you do this mission, park your car in the middle of the intersection in 
front of her house: This will cause traffic to back up, giving you more time 
between waves of hitmen. Go through the cutscene, grab the shotgun and run down
the stairs, taking out the hitmen there. Then go back up the stairs. Now you 
have one of two choices. Jump on a bench and free aim snipe the hitmen with 
your uzi (which leaves you unguarded), OR take advantage of the traffic stacked
up and shoot at on of the cars visible to you from the stairway. This allows 
you to be protected by the stairs, but the explosion you set off will blow up 
the rest of the cars in a chain reaction of spectacular proportions. This will
feed back to the hitmen. I advise using this on the third or fourth wave.

                        ****************************

A WALK IN THE PARK
Difficulty: ****
Reward: $1500
Prerequisite: Beat the Salvatore mission "Driving Mr. Leone"

Salvatore wants you to take out Mayor RC Hole, and you best bet to do so is 
during his jog in the park.  Enter the park unarmed, and when you get close to 
the mayor, pull out a weapon and blow him away.  He is heavily guarded, so grab 
his phone and book out of there, stopping to shoot guards that get in your way. 
After escaping, drive to Salvatore's.

If the mayor gets away, he'll get into a car and peel out. Run him down and 
kill him, take his phone and get to Salvatore's.

MAKING TONI
Difficulty: *
Reward: $2000
Prerequisite: Beat the Salvatore mission "A Walk In The Park"

Ready for the easiest 2000 bucks you've ever made?  Ignore your skepticism and 
drive with Mickey to the contact point.  After you arrive, watch the cutscene 
and the mission is over.

Afterwards, you should get a call from Ma signaling the end of the hit that's 
out on you and also nets you the Antonio outfit.

NOTE: BEATING THIS MISSION OPENS THE DONALD LOVE STRAND OF MISSIONS

CAUGHT IN THE ACT
Difficulty: ***
Reward: $2000
Prerequisite: Beat the Salvatore mission "Making Toni"

This mission is kind of tough.  While there are Secret Service guys everywhere, 
the game is generous in terms of health.  Just aim and fire to kill the guys 
surrounding you, and shoot down the helicopter when it appears.  No real 
strategy.
