Rigged to Blow is a mission in Grand Theft Auto IV, and the final mission given to protagonist Niko Bellic by Russian Mafia leader Mikhail Faustin from his house on Shinnecock Ave in Beachgate, Broker, Liberty City.
Niko arrives to Mikhail's house but his wife Ilyena Faustin answered the door. She invites him in and serves him tea from a rustic-looking tea dispenser on their dining table, and tells Niko that Mikhail yells at her for using it, because he thinks it makes them look like "barbarians". Niko and Ilyena talks about back in the days when Mikhail was a good person and when Niko was at war. As the conversation goes on, Ilyena asks Niko if he is concerned for his soul, and Niko vents that he saw soldiers tactfully kill an entire school full of innocent children during the war, and realized that the soldier didn't have a soul (perhaps alluding to Niko not believing in souls). Mikhail and Dimitri Rascalov enter. Mikhail first knocks over the tea dispenser in a fit of rage and yells at his wife, causing her to cry. Mikhail tells Niko that he wants Lenny Petrovic be taught a lesson for not paying up his debt but Dimitri wants to get his money instead. Dimitri wants Mikhail to calm down so that they won't be in more trouble with Kenny Petrovic. Mikhail is angered by Dimitri's instance that Mikhail is wrong and orders him to get out. Mikhail wants Niko to pick up a truck parked on Montauk Avenue in Schottler. When Niko arrives to the truck, he calls Mikhail what to do next. Mikhail wants Niko to drive the truck to a garage in Chase Point and informs Niko to drive carefully because there are explosives in the truck (if the player crashes or ram into something a few times, the truck explodes, failing the mission. And also, the truck is quite slow). Niko is surprised at this and drives carefully to the garage. He armed the bomb in the truck and runs out, blowing up the entire garage. Niko runs away from the scene and calls Mikhail not to do this to him next time. Mikhail thought Niko is tougher than this and insults Niko that he is as weak as Dimitri.
Niko Bellic: Hello.
Ilyena Faustin: Hello.
Niko Bellic: Is Mikhail home?
Ilyena Faustin: No. He's out.
Niko Bellic: Okay. Should I wait outside?
Ilyena Faustin: No, no, come in.
Niko Bellic: Oh, thank you.
Ilyena Faustin: You're welcome. Sit down.
Niko Bellic: Thank you.
Ilyena Faustin: You want some tea?
Niko Bellic: Sure.
Ilyena Faustin: Mikhail doesn't let me use this anymore, says it makes us look like barbarians. Uncivilized. Like immigrants.
Niko Bellic: Oh yeah?
Ilyena Faustin: I know what you're thinking, it is a bit funny coming from him! He did not used to be like this. When we were young, at home, he was beautiful. He was happy... he made me happy. But um... then something changed... years ago. I never quite knew what it was. So many years I wondered what it was. Or what was wrong with me, that I did not see it in him, or... I changed him.
Niko Bellic: Life is complicated. I... I never thought I'd live like this.
Ilyena Faustin: No?
Niko Bellic: When the war came, I did bad things. And after the war, I thought nothing of doing bad things. I killed people, smuggled people, sold people.
- During this mission Niko will automatically get a call from Roman who will ask Niko if they "Want to go get drunk together". Niko explains that he is already being careful driving a truck of explosives for Mr. Faustin and says "If I go drinking with you I will blow myself up for sure". With that the call ends. This is probably a distraction for the player to make the mission harder.
- Sometimes as Niko is running away from the garage, there is a glitch in which the player will be hit by a car before the explosion, making Niko off screen when the bomb goes off.
