This feature will allow you to go to any chapter or section in this guide quickly. On the left side of many of the chapters, as well as the right side of each of the major section headers, in the Table of Contents is a four character code. To access any of those chapters or sections do CTRL-F (PC) or Clover-F (Mac) to activate the Find feature in the web browser. Then enter the code in BRACKETS (or at least the left bracket) like this: [xxxx] or [xxxx You will notice that the chapters for the Main Story Missions do not have a four character code. They are accessed a little differently. To access any of the Main Story Mission chapters you activate the Find feature and enter the > character followed by the chapter number like this: >KR6 or >ZD12 This feature also works backwards. You will notice that the Table of Contents has it's own four character code. Should you want to quickly go back to the top of this document input the four letter code for the Table and you will instantly be back at the top of the guide. /==XX====XX====XX====XX====XX====X##***##X====XX====XX====XX====XX====XX==\ 0===XX====XX====XX====XX====XX====X##***##X====XX====XX====XX====XX====XX===0 | Table of Contents [TBCT] | 0===XX====XX====XX====XX====XX====0##***##0====XX====XX====XX====XX====XX===0 \==XX====XX====XX====XX====XX====X##***##X====XX====XX====XX====XX====XX==/ /XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\ 0================================================0 | I.

Who Am I? | 0===========================================================================0 \=========================================================================/ My name is Robert Allen Rusk and I am a hardcore gamer with about 30+ years of gaming experience. I am an ex-gametester (Broderbund Software, LucasArts Games, Point Of View Computing) and an ex-arcade attendant (Namco Cyberstation - Pier 39, San Francisco, CA). I also own multiple systems such as the Sega Dreamcast, Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, Atari Jaguar, PlayStation 1 and 2, Xbox and Xbox 360. I currently work at JCPenneys at one of the malls here in San Antonio, TX. Retail isn't the best job in the world but JCPenneys is a very stable company unlike some of the other places I have worked for in the past like internet service providers or web programming companies. I started writing guides in 2003 because I felt it was something I could do utilizing my writing skills gained in college and gametesting along with my passion for vidgames. Over time I have honed my overall writing and organization skills plus my creative thinking skills. I have extended the play value of the games I have written guides and FAQs for many times over plus I have received many letters from all over the world. I am also what one may call an RGB enthusiast. I hack my game consoles to try to get the best possible video from them and that usually involves tapping into the RGB Analog video signals and using them on the right monitors to achieve my desires. To this end I became a member of the GamesX.com mod forum and I post regularly on their "RGB + Video Discussions" forum area. In addition, I am a member of the X-Otic Computer Systems of San Antonio (www.xcssa.org), a group who specializes in Linux, Mac and other systems. I am also a regular forum poster at GameFAQs, an occasional poster at www.Atariage.com and Digital Press and I am also a member of the MOFAT (a members only message board set up by "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" players who met on the "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" message boards at GameFAQs). Outside of gaming, my interests include Godzilla (I have been a G-Fan since the age of ten) and Red Dwarf (I own all eight series on DVD). As far as favorite sports teams go my teams are the San Antonio Spurs (NBA) [the local team], the Denver Broncos (NFL) [although I live in Texas I am originally from Colorado Springs, Colorado] and the Air Force Falcons (NCAA Football). /=========================================================================\ 0===========================================================================0 | I.2. My Setup [MYST] | 0===========================================================================0 \=========================================================================/ This guide was constructed using TextWrangler 2.3 on a 1.5Ghz Single Core Intel Mac Mini. I view my work in Safari to help in seeing how it would look on the web and correct format errors. I also play "Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned" on a Viewsonic A70 RGB monitor using the Xbox 360 VGA cable. When I do my writing and guide revisions I run my Mac (on a Dell monitor) alongside the Xbox 360 (on my Viewsonic A70 monitor). This way I can simultaneously play and make changes to the guide at the same time. The sound is hooked up to an old stereo box I got from Radio Shack when I acquired my first Amiga 500 in 1990 and it has served me well considering its age. /=========================================================================\ 0===========================================================================0 | I.3. From The Author [FRAU] | 0===========================================================================0 \=========================================================================/ Welcome to my "Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned" guide! If this is the first time you have visited, you will find a lot of useful information in a highly organized format that you can use to beat all of the missions of the game. Quotes taken from readers' e-mail are presented "as is" and may include spelling and grammatical errors. When I first posted my initial version of my "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" guide in 2003, I did not know how well it would go over and how many people would respond. I wasn't exactly swamped with e-mail but I do get letters from time to time. Sometimes people would ask for advice and others would say how cool the guide is. All it takes is for one person to say how good and useful your guide is to make it all worthwhile. And others have made suggestions that have been incorporated into my guides. I want to thank GameFAQs for creating a place where such documents can be hosted for the benefit of all gamers. I also want to thank IGN.com, NeoSeeker.com, TheVGNation.com, GameHelper.com and many other sites for their generosity in hosting this guide along with my other work on their sites. I also want to thank everybody who has taken the time to download and read this guide. I love this game and I wanted to share my creative ideas with fellow "Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned" "thuggers". And, of course, I want to give a special thanks to all those who have taken the time to write to me and tell me what you thought, make suggestions and ask questions. With that said, let's get down to business shall we?..... /=========================================================================\ 0===========================================================================0 | I.4. About The Guide [ABGD] | 0===========================================================================0 \=========================================================================/ The main emphasis of this guide is to provide creative and simple solutions to many of the missions of "Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned". Many hours were spent going over each mission and finding unique ways to solve them. I think you will be surprised by many of the solutions found here. I have worked hard to make sure that this guide is as complete as possible but at the same time leave room for exploration. I hope that you enjoy this guide as much as learn from it. While this guide was written initially for the Xbox 360 version of the game, this guide will also benefit those with the PS3 version. If any of the strategies in this guide won't work in the PS3 version, feel free to write me and let me know so I can make additional adjustments in future revisions. Another emphasis of this guide is ORDER. If you do the missions and tasks in a certain order, the game will be easier and more fun for you. You don't absolutely have to do them in the order I have suggested but as you read the guide you will see how it benefitted me. Each Seagull has a letter designation to make them easier to identify in this guide. In addition there is a three letter Region Prefix (listings below) indicating a particular area where the item can be found (in these examples I use "XXX"): >>Seagulls will be identified with an "S". Example: Seagull XXX-S21. 0================0 | Region Prefixes \ 0==================0 >>BHN - Bohan >>CRN - Charge Island >>DKS - Dukes >>FIA - Francis International Airport >>BKR - Broker >>AGQ - Algonquin >>COL - Colony Island >>HPI - Happiness Island >>ALD - Alderney /=========================================================================\ 0===========================================================================0 | I.5. Submissions and Contact Information [SBMS] | 0===========================================================================0 \=========================================================================/ If you have any comments, suggestions and critiques, you can e-mail me at the following address: ++rarusk[gnat]netzero[snot]com Things to submit..... >>Better ideas. If you have some better way to do certain missions, I would be glad to hear it. Once I confirm it, I will include your idea in future revisions and will credit you for it. >>Anecdotes and observations (especially if they're funny). >>Constructive critiques. While I have strived to make this as good a guide as possible, I know it is not perfect. Whatever criticisms you make of this guide please make them constructive so I can learn from it since I may consider doing guides for other games in the future. >>Grammatical and formatting errors. In addition to e-mail I can be contacted by other means as noted at the top of my guide. I can be found at FaceBook where I am doing the social networking thing and have hooked up with old friends and made new ones: ++Robert Allen Rusk (San Antonio, TX, USA) I also have a page at LinkedIn where I am using it to try to make a comeback into the gaming industry. ++http://www.linkedin.com/pub/robert-allen-rusk/15/539/59b In addition, I have a blog where I use it to post my thoughts on gaming and other things: ++http://rarusk.livejournal.com I also have an Xbox Live account where I can be found on occasion: ++GAMERTAG: RARusk /=========================================================================\ 0===========================================================================0 | I.6. "Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned" [TLST] | 0===========================================================================0 \=========================================================================/ "Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned" is a additional chapter to "Grand Theft Auto IV" that can be downloaded onto the Xbox 360 or played from the "Episodes From Liberty City" disc (explained later). A very interesting addition to the main game. Much shorter than GTA IV but tells the story of another character within Niko Bellic's story. The story of Johnny Klebitz also intersects with Niko's on a couple of missions and a few others help to set up some missions within GTA IV. There are also a couple of points where TBoGT also intersects with "GTA IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony". This game introduces new weapons, vehicles, races, conflicts and radio material. All in all, a pretty good game and well worth the purchase regardless of whether you do the download or play from the EFLC disc. Now, let's look over the game in detail..... /=========================================================================\ 0===========================================================================0 | I.7. TLaD and GTA IV (Xbox 360 Version Only) [TDGV] | 0===========================================================================0 \=========================================================================/ The first thing to note about TLaD is that it is not a separate game from GTA IV but becomes part of it. This means that it uses the same game save slots as GTA IV so, if you want to preserve your GTA IV game saves, you will need a Memory Unit to transfer them to. In addition, the Accomplishments list for TLaD also becomes part of GTA IV's list. However, because TLaD is an addition rather than a standalone game, there are far fewer Accomplishments and for a grand total of 250 GS. Of course, the game requires the GTA IV game disc to run. For the first time you run TLaD you need to go into the Game menu, select New and choose TLaD. After running TLaD for the first time, whenever you you put in the GTA IV disc later, it will run TLaD instead of GTA IV. Whenever you need to play GTA IV proper you will need to have a game save from GTA IV in one of your game save slots or a Memory Unit and load it to switch back to GTA IV. /=========================================================================\ 0===========================================================================0 | I.8. TLaD Features [TFTR] | 0===========================================================================0 \=========================================================================/ TLaD introduces new stuff to the GTA IV world: >>New Media ********* There are plenty of new music and material for several of the radio stations in Liberty City: ++LCHC ++Radio Broker ++We Know The Truth! ++The Beat 102.7 ++Liberty Rock Radio 97.8 In addition, this new material crosses over to GTA IV so Niko can enjoy it (Xbox 360 DLC only). >>New Weapons *********** There are also some new weapons to play with: ++Semi-Automatic Pistol ++Pipe Bombs ++Sawn-Off Shotgun ++Grenade Launcher ++Assault Shotgun ++Pool Cue >>New Mini-Games ************** There are some new mini-games to try: ++Arm Wrestling ++Air Hockey ++Hi-Lo Card Game >>Miscellaneous Features ********************** There are also some other stuff as well: ++Comedian Frankie Boyle at Split Sides. ++Annihilator helicopter now has explosive bullets. Sadly, this doesn't cross over to GTA IV. ++New Bike Races. ++Gang Wars are introduced. ++No roadblocks. Liberty City is completely open from the start. ++Gun Stores are also open from the start with all weapons, except for one, available. ++Ability to acquire some of the Accomplishments for GTA IV. ++There is one subtraction: You cannot enter Clothes Stores (and therefore you cannot purchase new clothes for Johnny). /=========================================================================\ 0===========================================================================0 | I.9. "Episodes From Liberty City" [ELIB] | 0===========================================================================0 \=========================================================================/ "Episodes From Liberty City" is a disc that contains the two GTA IV expansion games "The Lost and Damned" and "The Ballad of Gay Tony". Both of these games were released first as downloadable content (for the Xbox 360) and becomes part of the overall GTA IV story. A brief synopsis of each game as taken from the game manual: >>"The Lost and Damned" ********************* Across the West River from glamorous Algonquin lies Alderney; home to industrial wastelands, strip malls, dreary suburbia and The Lost Motorcycle Club, a notorious biker gang. A motley band of thieves,
