Ray Boccino calls Niko Bellic up and tells him to go to Tudor, Alderney where he introduces him to Pegorino associate Phil Bell. After a brief introduction, Phil asks Ray about a favor. When Ray states that he can't do it, he suggests Niko for the job. Phil takes a chance and explains to Niko that some Triads have a truck load of heroin that they think is cursed from previous situations, and are looking to offload it at almost any price. Phil wants Niko to head over to the Truck, kill the Triads, take the truck, and bring it to the old mansion to his nephew Frankie Gallo as a "wedding gift".

Niko heads over to an alley way off Long John Avenue. As Niko takes cover behind a short wall the Triads and the truck arrive. Niko ambushes and kills all of the triads, however before he gets to the truck it drives off. Niko chases after the truck and a short sprint later, he grabs onto the back of it.

He eventually climbs onto the roof up the back, and slowly has to army-crawl towards the front, each time a corner turns and Niko slides off, he struggles to climb back up again. When he reaches the front, Niko will swing down, kick through the window, and struggle with the driver in the front seat, putting his own gun to his head, shooting him and kicking him onto the street.

When in control of the truck Niko drives it to the old mansion off Beaverhead Ave, and leaves it with Phil's newphew Frankie for the time being. After this the mission is complete.

This mission unlocks the The Fixer's Assassinations.


(Phil Bell on the phone at his trailer with Niko Bellic and Ray Boccino).

Phil Bell : Uh-huh. That thing? Our friend did what? Thirty-seven at eight? Nah. What about them Swingers. How's Marlene? The kids? Beautiful. Okay. Yeah, I gotta go. Ciao. Hey Ray. So, uh, who's the pal?

Ray Boccino: Phil you remember Niko, he's a good friend of mine. Can we talk?

Phil Bell: Sure we can talk... as long as we don't talk to much. Interesting times, you know what I mean? Did you hear about our friend, the guy with the thing?

Ray Boccino: Yeah, Harry the...guy with the hat.

Phil Bell: No the guy with the, y'know, the budda beep budda boop.

Ray Boccino: Yeah the guy with the... and the-

Phil Bell Yeah that guy.

Ray Boccino: Yeah. I heard.

Phil Bell: So be cool, Ray. Listen. I need to speak to you alone.

Ray Boccino: Yeah, see, Phil, that's the thing. I kinda know what your going to ask, and I Can't.

Phil Bell: Whaddaya mean you can't?

Ray Boccino: I can't do it Phil. I got a lot interest right now, business is really taking off,and I don't want any distractions.

Phil Bell: Well as you can see i got my own issues here...

Ray Boccino Look. Niko is good. He'll do what you need.

Phil Bell: And you say that he's a friend of yours... Sure good to meet you. The Triads have this big chunk of brown they're desperate to get rid. Talking about it all over town. Wanting to offload it at any price. They think it's cursed or something. Prove it is. Take it from them. It's loaded into a truck going to Franklyn Street and West Dyke. Get a hold of it and give me a call.

Niko Bellic: Sure. But Mr. Bell, it's going to cost you.

Phil Bell: You got it. No Problem.

Ray Boccino: Great. Say, nice stereo you got there, Phil.

Phil Bell: Thanks!

Ray Boccino: Yeah so, Philly, ever hear from your ex wife?

Phil Bell: What kind of question is that?

Ray Boccino: Just askin'.

Phil Bell: Get the hell out of here. Every time this motherfucker...

Ray Boccino: I'll be in touch, Nicky.

(Niko while on the back of the truck) Niko Bellic: Well it seemed like a good idea when I grab the truck.

Niko Bellic: Dumb Triad truck driver.

Niko Bellic: Ahhh... dumb fucker!

Niko Bellic: Ohhhh... I don't even like fucking heroin.

Niko Bellic: This better be good smack!

Niko Bellic: Ohh shit!

(Niko smashes through the side window and kills the triad with his own gun). Niko Bellic: This heroin is curse, you don't fucking want it!

(Niko on the phone with Phil)

Niko Bellic: Phil, man, I got that thing you were after. What you want me to do with it.

Phil Bell: It's a wedding present for my nephew, Frankie. Take it to the big house off of Beaverhead Avenue. You'll know the one I mean. He'll be waiting for you there.

Niko Bellic: Hey, you Frankie? Your uncle ask me to give you this as a wedding present. You're a lucky guy.

Frankie: I don't know about that. I got to sit on this stuff until Phil gets over his paranoia and we can ship it. Meantime, I got to pack it into some cars that go faster than this thing.

Niko Bellic: Sounds like a fun honeymoon. Later on.



  • The player can find a Sultan RS behind the garage by the old mansion after giving the truck to Frankie.
  • The heroin in this mission appears in The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony as well.
  • If you shoot the truck driver in the head before he leaves,it will keep going as if you never killed him. After you get to the truck's cab, he will still be alive.
  • If the player continues to hang behind the truck, it will eventually reach a dead end and start ramming at the wall.
  • Dwayne's backup service comes in very handy during the initial gunfight. The key is to summon it, and wait for it to arrive before Niko makes himself known; the Triads will initially attack Dwayne's men and be distracted.
