The family's criminal empire is based in [[Alderney City]] and [[Algonquin]], mainly around the [[Little Italy]] area. They are apparently the weakest of the Five Families, going to the extent of hiring [[Albanians|Albanian thugs]] for extra muscle. Because of this, the Ancelottis are often the target of the [[Pegorino Family]] and their hired muscle, the [[Irish Mob]]. Despite the family's small size, they still appear to be able to intimidate people, judging by some of the in game dialogue. This could be due to things that they have done in the past that remain as of yet unexplained. They also start to work with the [[Faustin Family]], earning the wrath of the [[Gambetti Family]], who consider it an insult to work with foreign crime syndicates. After the events of the storylines, the family is ruined. Most of the reputed members have been murdered, apart from the boss, his daughter [[Gracie Ancelotti|Gracie]], and made man [[Rocco Pelosi|Rocco]]. ==Reputed members and associates== ===Known Members=== *[[Giovanni Ancelotti]]- Boss. *[[Charles Matteo]]- Underboss. *[[Anthony Spoleto]]- Caporegrime. *[[Frank Garone]]- Caporegrime. *[[Rocco Pelosi]]- Soldier. *[[Uncle Vince|Vince]]- Enforcer. ===Associates=== *[[Anthony Prince]]- Nightclub entrepreneur. *[[Luis Fernando Lopez]]- Anthony Prince's bodyguard and business partner. *[[Gracie Ancelotti]]- Giovanni's daughter. ==Notes== The Ancelotti family may be based on the [[wp:Colombo crime family|Colombo crime family]], the least influent family of New York, even though the Colombos are just based in Brooklyn and don't have a heavy influence in New Jersey. Like the Colombo family the Ancelottis are one of the smaller families of New York City. ==Trivia== *It's possible the family ended after the end of [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] because Rocco left the city after [[Departure Time]] and two Capos, the Underboss and several members were killed by Niko Bellic. *During the mission [[Chinese Takeout]], [[Gay Tony]] says they are "One of the most powerful mob families in the city", despite them ironically being the weakest. *It is possible that the buyers in the mission [[If the Price is Right]] are the Ancelottis since they are known to be in the business of dealing drugs with [[Dimitri Rascalov]] and the [[Russian Mafia]]. *The family's main/favorite car is the [[Cognoscenti]], seen driven more by them then anybody. {{Gangs}} {{GTA IV Gangs}} [[Category:Gangs]] [[Category:Cosa Nostra]] [[Category:Gangs in GTA IV]] [[Category:Gangs in The Lost and Damned]] [[Category:Gangs in The Ballad of Gay Tony]]

Sticky Bombs

From Grand Theft Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
The Sticky Bomb and its associated HUD icon

Sticky Bombs are explosives featured in The Ballad of Gay Tony and Grand Theft Auto V. They can be thrown and stick to any surface they hit, but, unlike the Satchel Charges from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, these bombs do not stick to people. They can then be detonated by pressing Down on the d-pad or shooting them. When thrown the bombs emit a steady beep and a yellow light flashes. When activated the beep rises in pitch and speed, and the light turns red, then after less than a second, they detonate. The blast radius is similar to a grenade. Up to ten (two in multiplayer) Sticky Bombs can be placed; throwing out the eleventh(third in multiplayer) will cause the first one to disappear. The bombs have a 90 second fuse, so if an armed bomb is left undetonated for 90 seconds, it will automatically detonate. The detonation of a sticky bomb imposes a minimum of a one-star wanted level.

Many players prefer this weapons in drive-by's, due to the fact that they deal a large amount of damage, can stick to any vehicle, and can be detonated at any time (which allows them to be used somewhat like landmines). However, the player must be careful to ensure that their own car doesn't get caught in the blast radius, if used these against a vehicle in close proximity. Another factor to take in mind is how fragile they are. As mentioned above, shooting them will cause them to explode. However, they can be detonated via physical contact. If it is placed onto a vertical surface and rammed by a car, it will detonate. One must take care when using them in a drive-by that that car that the bomb is stuck on doesn't attempt to ram the player, as the impact may cause the bomb to explode.
