Contra-Banned is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories given to protagonist Toni Cipriani by Salvatore Leone from his home in the Saint Mark's district of Portland, Liberty City.


Toni drops by Salvatore's home, walking in during an argument between Salvatore and Maria. Salvatore, whilst continuing to argue with Maria, informs Toni of a drug shipment that's about to come in to Liberty City. Salvatore asks Toni to drop by and make sure the drop goes off okay.

Toni takes three Leone Family members with him to Portland Harbor, where it is revealed the drug dealers are Colombian Cartel members, with Miguel among the group. Just before the trade, however, the Liberty City Police Department and FBI ambush the deal, and Toni calls Miguel a "greaseball fuck" for setting him up. Toni receives a three-star wanted level.

After gunning down the Cartel dealers, including Miguel who actually survived, Toni takes the Cartel's Patriot full of drugs and must lose the police. Thereafter, Toni takes the Patriot to one of Salvatore's lock-ups in Saint Mark's, completing the mission.


The reward for completing the mission is $1,000. Provided the player has passed Blow Up 'Dolls', No Son of Mine and Overdose of Trouble, completion of Contra-Banned should unlock Salvatore's Salvation for Joseph Daniel O'Toole.

Post mission phone call

This phone call may instead be triggered after Blow Up 'Dolls', No Son of Mine or Overdose of Trouble, depending on which of these three missions the player completes last

Joseph Daniel O'Toole: Hey Toni! It's JD. I hear it all over: you're headed for big things. I just hope you don't go forgetting about your old pal JD when you get to the top. Right? Hey, drop by some time okay buddy.


  • If the player leaves Portland Harbor without the Cartel's drug-loaded Patriot, the player will eventually fail the mission as the drugs have been "seized" by the police.
  • The mission is one of two in the game where the player can acquire an FBI Cruiser, when it appears alongside conventional police cars during the raid. However, in order to store it in their garage, the player must leave the harbor, thereby failing the mission.
  • You must kill Miguel or the Patriot will remain locked.
  • Despite being a main antagonist in Grand Theft Auto III, Miguel is seemingly killed in this mission, set three years prior. It can assumed that he managed to survive somehow, however.
