Plot

Gambetti is not too fond of the Russians, and he wants you to destroy their loot at the compound in Alderney City. Their "grocery business" is a cover cover for their drugs business. You'll need to sneak in via the rooftops, take out the snipers, men at bottom, then destroy the five fans filled with cocaine.

Mission

When you return to visit John at the hospital in Broker off of Cassidy Street, you’ll find him accompanied by a familiar face. Remember the mysterious paper company with the shady guy in glasses who sent you on all sorts of miserable missions, seemingly for no reason? Well, here he is, and he appears to know your dying friend John pretty well. The two men tell Niko about the Russians and a rival Italian family that seem to be working together. This isn’t good for the interests these men oversee, and they dispatch you to take care of the problem. Just like the last job you undertook for John, this job takes place clear across the city in Alderney. Boost a car and head westward as your GPS on the HUD brings you along. When you arrive in Alderney, you’re looking for Farnsworth Road, a non-discrete road in an industrial area of the overly-industrial borough. Upon arriving at the predestined location, the game will show you some great shots of the compound you have to sack. There are five vans you have to destroy in your sacking of the compound (represented by red dots on your HUD), and there are a plethora of enemies guarding the compound. All-in-all, this is going to be a fairly difficult mission. But that’s to be expected, as we are quite near the end of the game at this point. There are a number of ways you can go about this mission, including utilizing techniques that are a bit unnecessary (such as scoping out an area around the building and killing from afar). We recommend a much more straight-forward approach. Instead of holding back, simply bust through the fence blocking the only way in or out of the small compound, using your car to run over some foes and thin out the enemies on the ground. Make sure to be quick, though, because enemies here are well-armed and shooting to kill. When you’ve seemingly-exhausted your ability to kill foes with your vehicle, park it in such a way that you can use it as a barrier, and get out with guns blazing. Now, your options are numerous here. There are five vans in the area that must be destroyed, and making matters more difficult, the vans can be driven off, effectively eliminating your ability to destroy them and forcing the mission to end in failure. The idea, therefore, is to run around and kill all of the enemies in the area to make sure there are no enemies left to drive those vans. Then, they can be destroyed at your leisure. Enemies are everywhere here, armed with all sorts of various weapons that can cause massive damage and destruction. Utilize cover wisely, and be sure to clear the roofs of the buildings of their numerous enemies as well (there are ladders and a staircase leading up to some of the roofs). From those high vantage points, you should also be able to clear remaining enemies from the high ground if you choose to climb up to them. When the enemies are severely thinned in numbers (or, better yet, completely eliminated), you can then concentrate on taking out the vans. Naturally, the easiest way to destroy them is by using RPGs or Grenades. If you have either weapon, get into the vans and bunch them together so only one or two rockets or grenades will eliminate them all. Otherwise, if you’re without explosives, you can just as easily equip a powerful weapon (we used an Uzi) and pump a clip into the front of each van. A clip should make it start smoking and firing. When that happens, walk away, moving onto the next van, and watching the previous one eventually explode. When the destruction is over, you’re in the clear with another completed mission under your belt.
