The Holland Play is a mission given by both Playboy X and Dwayne Forge to Niko Bellic in Grand Theft Auto IV. Both request that you kill the other, and you have your choice to either kill Playboy X or Dwayne Forge. The mission is played differently depending on who you kill. Also, the reward is different depending on who you kill.
Niko Bellic speaks to Playboy at his apartment. Playboy asks him to kill Dwayne, and Niko says he will think about it. After the cutscene, the player can optionally continue with between-missions tasks such as dating, etc.
At some point afterwards, Niko will receive a call from Dwayne (or you can call him directly to save the wait), asking him to kill Playboy. The player must choose whether to kill Playboy or Dwayne. After the call, the player is once again left to his own devices, but Playboy will eventually call Niko (or again, you can call him yourself to save time), and a red 'X' and 'D' will appear over Playboy and Dwayne's locations; make your choice by going to the target's respective location.
If your decision is to kill Dwayne Forge, head over to Dwayne's apartment in the projects of North Holland, Algonquin. Go up the stairs to the first apartment, and you will encounter Dwayne's hobo bodyguard, wielding a baseball bat; he will try to kill you. Shoot him or beat him up. Go around the corner and face Dwayne.
To kill Forge, there are two options -- you can kill him with one of the special execution scenes, or do it the conventional way. Rather than resist, Dwayne simply turns his back on you, disgusted at your decision — in the execution scene, Niko shoots him in the back of the head.
If your decision is to kill Playboy X, head over to Playboy's penthouse in Northwood, Algonquin. A cutscene plays, and Playboy realizes Niko is after him; he retreats to the balcony, leaving his four cohorts to fight Niko. You will be behind some cover; shoot as many guards as you can from safety, then get out of cover and kill the rest. Go onto the balcony and chase Playboy down to street level. Some of his crew will get into a Patriot and try to gun you down. Take care of them, and corner Playboy X in an alleyway. He will drop his jammed Desert Eagle.
You can either kill Playboy in the normal way, or use a pistol to trigger an execution scene, in which Playboy looks to the sky, and Niko shoots him through the lower jaw, the bullet exiting through the top of his head.
There is a much more straightforward alternative — while you are in cover in Playboy's apartment, switch to your rocket launcher (if you've managed to get one — one can be found relatively nearby on the small rocky island north of Holland) and fire it at the bottom half of the open door through which Playboy escaped. You can also do this with grenades. Playboy will most likely be caught in the explosion and die while hiding behind the tree - re-aim and shoot again if that's not the case. The mission will pass as normal. Warning: if you kill Playboy before killing his goons, they will still be active and attacking you after the mission saves, so you'll need to take care of them without getting wasted.
If you still cannot manage to blow up Playboy, shoot his goons and go to the left of the big room. There you can snipe him, as you will have a clear view of his head.
A rare instance may occur if you choose to kill Playboy X. After killing his bodyguards & chasing him, X may run through the broken part of the fire escape thus falling to his death. His corpse won't show up after the mission complete theme but the Desert Eagle will still be available for pick up.
Killing Playboy X outside may result in a wanted level. If you happen to still be in the penthouse when this happens, simply wait a few seconds until the message informing you the safehouse is now yours comes up. Then simply save the game as usual for removing wanted levels. If the TV was damaged during the gunfight, you'll need to leave the safehouse building and reenter before it can be used.
- If you kill Dwayne Forge, you'll get $25,000. Playboy will say he never wants to see you again because you killed his mentor.
- If you kill Playboy X, you'll get his penthouse as a gift from Dwayne, and Claude's Outfit from GTA III (only available using the wardrobe in the penthouse). You also obtain a Desert Eagle after killing him (of course, if you change weapons). Dwayne will become a friend, if you respond positively to an e-mail he will send. Dwayne's special ability is to send two gangsters to help you in a gunfight. You may also be able to "inherit" Playboy's gold Patriot if it spawns in the parking space. (But it might not spawn if you left a vehicle parked there before going upstairs.)
Killing Playboy X
- Playboy X; executed by Niko for Dwayne Forge. If he is spared and Dwayne is killed, he will pay Niko his $25,000 promised but refuse to come near him.
- Dwayne Forge; killed by Niko easily to acclaim $25,000 from Playboy. He will give Niko a safehouse, costume and become a friend of his if he is spared.
