|Triads and Tribulations|
Claude reading a letter from Toni Cipriani, which tells him to take the two Leone Family mobsters to Chinatown to kill three Triad warlords.
|Location||Saint Mark's, Portland, Liberty City|
Triads and Tribulations is a mission in Grand Theft Auto III given to protagonist Claude by Leone Family Caporegime Toni Cipriani from his mother's restaurant in the Saint Mark's district of Portland, Liberty City.
Claude goes to the restaurant, looking for more work from Toni. Claude finds a letter left on the table telling the task of getting rid of three Triad warlords. However, there are already two Leone goons with him.
The first warlord is located in Chinatown, with Claude driving to the location and killing him and the Triads who are with him. The second warlord is standing near the pedestrian only walk part of Chinatown, seemingly alone. When the Triads spot Claude, they ambush him but Claude kills them and the second warlord. The third is located in the Fish Factory, so Claude steals a Triad Fish Van, drives into the compound and kills the third Triad warlord. Alternatively Claude can throw a grenade over the walls towards the Fish Factory.
(Claude walks to Momma's Restaurante finding the letter.)
Ma Cipriani: Oh, it's you. Toni ain't here. But he left one off his sugary love letters for you.
Toni Cipriani: We're at WAR. The Triads have a fish factory as a front. Most of their business goes down at the fish market in Chinatown. That laundry still owes us protection. They reckon the Triads are protecting them now, so I say we exact a fitting punishment. Take these boys over and whack the Triad warlords! Hell, if you get a chance, pop of some of their soldiers too.
- The mission name may be a spoof to the popular science fiction series Star Trek, who had an episode entitled "Trials and Tribulations".
- The third warlord in the factory can be killed in another way, going up the hill behind the factory and kill him with a grenade/motolov.
