GTA 3 Espresso 2 Go is a mission that's proving tricky for a lot of players, and if you're reading this guide then you've no doubt discovered why the task set by Asuka Kasen of the Yakuza is thought to be one of the hardest assignments from the entire GTA series. Not even the improved controls and camera provided by the GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition can make a significant difference to the difficulty here, as you really need to know where to destroy all of the coffee stalls to plan a route across the three islands, and all the while you're up against the clock and the Cartel drivers trying to take you out! To help you out with this we have a GTA 3 Espresso 2 Go map of all of the stalls locations, plus some advice to guide you through passing the mission.

There are a total of 9 GTA 3 Espresso 2 Go stalls you need to destroy in order to complete this mission, which can be found in the following locations:

  1. Shoreside Vale: Near the hospital in Pike Creek.
  2. Shoreside Vale: Near the statue at Francis International Airport.
  3. Staunton Island: In a building courtyard in Belleville Park.
  4. Staunton Island: On a path in Belleville Park.
  5. Staunton Island: Near the church in Bedford Point.
  6. Staunton Island: Near the roadside bushes in Bedford Point.
  7. Staunton Island: Near the star statue in Torrington.
  8. Portland Island: By a parking lot in Saint Mark's.
  9. Portland Island: Opposite the docks entrance in Trenton.

Once you destroy the first GTA 3 Espresso 2 Go stall, a countdown timer will start and you'll have 8 minutes of real time to destroy the remaining stands before the Colombians can warn their dealers to clear the streets. Therefore, it makes sense to pick a stall on either Shoreside Vale or Portland Island to start your campaign of destruction with, to minimise the amount of travelling back and forth required while against the clock.

As you progress you'll have a Cartel Cruiser trying to ram you off the road, with gangsters inside carrying uzis, and the Cartel member in the stalls are also armed with uzis or shotguns. One small blessing is that during this mission any other hostile gangs will turn their attention to attacking the Cartel rather than yourself, so at least you don't have them to deal with on top of everything else.

This is a notoriously tough mission, so try to keep your cool and don't be too stressed if it take you a few attempts to get through it. Good luck!
