After receiving a phone call from [[Vladimir Glebov]] to work for him, [[Niko Bellic]] meets Vlad at the [[Comrades Bar]] over on [[Mohawk Ave]] (across the street from the [[Broker Safehouse|Hove Beach safehouse]]). During a cutscene, Niko and Vlad converse. Vlad, despite repeated insults, actually seems to like Niko, and trusts him enough to send him out on a mission. Vlad asks Niko to deal with a china shop owner who owes Vlad protection money. Vlad asks Niko to not hurt the man, but to get the money. Vlad offers Niko a [[Baseball Bat|baseball bat]] to intimidate the shop owner, but Niko declines the weapon, arguing that he has other ways of going about it.

[[Niko]] enters [[Comrades Bar]] and talks to [[Vladimir Glebov]]. He tells Niko that there is a shop owner who owes protection money to him, and wants Niko to scare him. He offers him a [[baseball bat]], but Niko says he has other ways to scare people.
  
Niko arrives at the shop only to see that the door is locked and the owner is refusing to pay. Niko then smashes the window and the owner agrees to pay out of fear. Niko then takes the money to Vlad who is&nbsp;in the Comrades Bar. Vlad also reveals that the shop owner is dealing in illegal businesses back in the East of Asia, when he states: "Stupid jerk made a mistake telling me how much he gets for that shit back east. He's the biggest crook in the whole neighbourhood. Luckily I don't tell his customers what they're paying for."

Niko takes a [[taxi]] to the Chinese shop and, from outside, talks to the owner. The owner refuses to pay Vlad, so Niko decides to get a brick and smash the window with it. The owner gets out and gives the money to Niko. Niko calls Vlad to inform him, goes back to the bar and gives the money to Vlad.

After the cutscene, the player will head over to the china shop in [[Cerveza Heights]], located on Compton Avenue and Dukes Street. The mission offers the player the opportunity to take a taxi ride instead (with a [[Taxi]] appropriately appearing in front of the player), but the player can also drive there on their own. When the player arrives, the player will only find the owner of the establishment refusing to pay. The game will guide the player to a nearby green waypoint marker, where a brick amongst a pile of rubble can be picked up. The player may throw the brick through one of the store windows, or shoot at them with any weapon, or simply smash it with Niko's fist.

The player gets [[Money|$]]50. In addition, [[taxi]] rides are now available.

Another way to scare the shop owner is not to go into the yellow marker when the player gets there, instead go to the other side of the street. Take out a [[sniper rifle]] and shoot one of the windows beside the door. Note that this will change the cutscene where the shop owner exits the store.

Once the store owner gets scared enough to choke up the money, Niko will call Vlad up on the phone and let him know about his success. He'll then be ordered back to the bar to give up the money. The [[GPS]] will, once again, get you to the location easily. Once back at the bar, get out of the car, enter, watch the finalizing cutscene, and give Vlad his cash.

Bull in a China Shop is a mission in Grand Theft Auto IV given to protagonist Niko Bellic by Vladimir Glebov from Comrades Bar.

Mission

Niko enters Comrades Bar and talks to Vladimir Glebov. He tells Niko that there is a shop owner who owes protection money to him, and wants Niko to scare him. He offers him a baseball bat, but Niko says he has other ways to scare people.

Niko takes a taxi to the Chinese shop and, from outside, talks to the owner. The owner refuses to pay Vlad, so Niko decides to get a brick and smash the window with it. The owner gets out and gives the money to Niko. Niko calls Vlad to inform him, goes back to the bar and gives the money to Vlad.

Reward

The player gets $50. In addition, taxi rides are now available.

Trivia

  • The mission's opening cutscene marks the introduction of two minor characters that may appear as random characters later in the storyline: Mel, who leaves the bar drunk, and Ivan Bytchkov, who is also seen leaving after ending a meeting with Vlad.
  • If you break the shop's window before going to the marker, the shop owner will have different dialogue
