Protagonist Carl Johnson returns to his hometown of Los Santos and needs to re-establish himself in the neighborhood. Missions in this city involve Carl's rise to power in the Grove Street Families, and the challenges with his family. Many of these missions have Carl as the driver plus additional help as required.
There are 28 missions in the main thread for Los Santos.
CJ has just gotten back into town. He has been away from the old neighborhood for a while. A lot has happened since he has been away. Time to head back home.
- In The Beginning (GTA SA) - is the opening sequence, cutscene and mission of GTA San Andreas.
- Big Smoke (Mission) - is a mission that expands BMX riding and exploring the city of Los Santos, and also opens the BMX Challenge odd job.
- Ryder (Mission) - is a mission that introduces the Barbers, the Restaurants, and driving. It also opens up the missions in the Sweet Path.
These series of missions will help establish CJ back with the Grove Street families again. Many of these missions have CJ causing trouble in enemy territory or serving as support to Sweet (or others) in cleaning up the neighborhood.
Cesar Vialpando Path
- High Stakes, Low Rider - race Cesar and his other racers
Big Smoke Path
These missions are a little more violent in nature. Make sure you are well stocked in the firearm department since Big Smoke tends to provoke the violent side of people.
Ryder's missions are more robbery oriented. This doesn't mean you won't see a lot of action but you will definitely be stealing things.
OG Loc Path
This set of missions involves you stealing sound equipment and musical scores so that OG Loc can become a big rap artist.
These missions involve you doing some "favors" for Officer Tenpenny. It seems that keeping the gangs at war with one another helps him in his job. Of course, he isn't above receiving payoffs or other bribes.
Sweet Path (Part 2)
The second part of the Sweet Path cannot be begun until Burning Desire is completed.
Los Santos Conclusion Path
This is what all previous missions have been leading up to. Sweet wants to reunite the families so they can permanently establish themselves once and for all.
CJ has stumbled onto something that is much bigger then himself. It appears that Big Smoke is totally loyal to Officer Tenpenny and he does exactly what he is told. Tenpenny warns CJ to stay away from Big Smoke or Sweet will suffer. Tenpenny has a few loose ends that need to be taken care of at the same time CJ is trying to re-establish himself.
There are 14 missions for the Badlands.
- Badlands - Take out an ex-policeman for Tenpenny
When you arrive in Dillimore, you get to meet Catalina for the first time. She is very heavy on attitude and her appetite for destruction and sex seem to be unparalleled. See also has a very serious payback streak. These missions will be colorful to say the least. NOTE: The four Catalina Missions involving soft targets do not have to be done in a particular order. After doing the first mission, though, you must do a couple of side missions before resuming to finishing off the other three soft targets.
