'''Uncle Vlad''' is a [[Missions in GTA IV|mission]] in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]]. In this mission, the player is introduced to [[Executions|executions]], a type of assassination which displays a cutscene, if the [[pistol]] is used.
+
'''Uncle Vlad''' is a mission in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] given to [[protagonist]] [[Niko Bellic]] by his cousin [[Roman Bellic]] from his [[Express Car Service|cab depot]].
  
== Overview ==
+
== Mission ==
 +
[[Niko Bellic|Niko]] enters Roman's cab depot and sees [[Roman Bellic|Roman]], drunk and upset, because he suspects [[Mallorie Bardas|Mallorie]] is seeing [[Vladimir Glebov|Vlad]], as he saw his car parked at her house. Niko tells Roman he already knew this, which makes Roman get mad at him and call him disloyal. Niko decides it's time for Vlad to pay for what he has done, but Roman begs Niko not to hurt Vlad. Anyway, Niko leaves.
  
After [[Niko Bellic|Niko]] and [[Roman Bellic|his cousin Roman]] discover that local Russian criminal [[Vladimir Glebov]] is sleeping with [[Mallorie Bardas|Roman's girlfriend]], Niko pressures Roman into going with him to kill Vlad. Roman believes this is a bad idea, as [[Mikhail Faustin]], Vlad's boss, may kill Niko and Roman in retaliation.
+
Niko and Roman drive to [[Comrades Bar]]. Along the way, Roman continues to warn Niko they shouldn't hurt Vlad, as his boss, [[Mikhail Faustin]], may kill them. Niko doesn't care about this and is convinced the only way to end this is to kill Vlad. When they arrive to the bar, they enter and see Vlad talking to the other people. Niko confronts Vlad and he runs away. The other people at the bar attack Niko, but he avoids them and follows Vlad, who gets in his car and speeds off. Niko quickly gets in the car with Roman and chase Vlad.
  
Niko and Roman drive to [[Comrades Bar]]. Niko confronts Vlad, who escapes out the back door of the bar and drives away in his [[Marbelle]], leaving Niko to fight his two goons. Niko kills or evades the goons and then gives chase in his own car, eventually cornering Vlad on the eastern shore of the [[Humboldt River]], and [[Executions|shooting him dead]] at point blank range.
+
Roman repeatedly begs Niko to stop and that Vlad is getting away anyway, but Niko is sure he will come back. They ultimately get into [[BOABO]], where Vlad leaves his car at a small lot next to [[Humboldt River]]. Niko approaches Vlad.
  
Roman flees, eventually hiding in a dumpster on Tulsa St, [[Broker]], thinking that it will be a good hiding spot from Mikhail Faustin, Vlad's boss.
+
Vlad, just standing in front of Niko, starts telling him that he's nothing in the city and that he won't survive without him, since his bosses will not allow someone killing their employees. After listening to him, Niko pulls out a [[pistol]] and [[Executions|executes]] Vlad by shooting him in the head, saying that "nobody fucks with his family".
  
== Walkthrough ==
+
Niko grabs Vlad's body and pushes it to the water's edge. Roman gets out of the car and sees what Niko has done. He desperately yells at Niko he shouldn't have done anything and that they will end up dead. Niko waits a moment, then sits down and starts telling Roman why he came to [[Liberty City in GTA IV Era|Liberty City]]. During the war, he and his fellows went on a mission that turned out to be a set up. Everybody died except him and two other men. He knows one of them is in the city and wants to find him to ask him why he betrayed his friends. Roman, still worried, tells Niko that it isn't the right moment or place to make such a confession. They then push Vlad's body into the river, and Roman just goes away.
  
Roman becomes aware that Mallorie has been secretly going on dates with [[Vladimir Glebov|Vlad]]. Naturally he's upset, and Niko wants to go to the [[Comrades Bar]] and deal with him directly. Roman thinks Niko is crazy because he thinks that Vlad's men will get him and Niko into a lot of danger. Go with Roman to look for Vlad at the [[Comrades Bar|Comrades Bar.]]
+
Later, Niko calls Roman, who, whispering, tells Niko to come to the [[Perestroika Club]].
  
It is a good idea to drive to Roman's cab depot in a fast car when you go to receive this mission, as you will likely need it. Either a very fast car or one with very good handling is recommended for this mission, and for that matter all missions that involve a car chase.

== Reward ==

The player earns the [[Fed The Fish]] [[Achievements in GTA IV|achievement]].
  
Once the [[cutscene]] is over, either get into your fast car or the [[Roman's Taxi]] which now appears in the garage (and which will serve nicely if you don't have something else). Drive to the Comrades Bar to confront Vlad.

== Trivia ==
 
+
* The player automatically gets a [[pistol]], if he/she does not already have one, after the [[cutscene]] where Vlad is cornered at the river.
Vlad runs out the back door. Take out his goons with a [[Pistol|small gun]] (or push them down to the ground quickly and continue running) then head out the front door; Vlad will drive past as you get in your car so it saves time. Try not to have the shotgun armed while running, as you'll go slower.

+
Vlad had a getaway car stowed around back, and now he takes off. Get into your own car and chase him down.
+
 
+
Follow Vlad as he winds through the streets of [[Hove Beach]]. Once he gets to the docks, Vlad will crash his car and run away. The chase stops because the [[Humboldt River|river]] in front of Vlad blocks him from escaping any further. Niko orders Roman to stay. Get your pistol out and confront Vlad Glebov.
+
 
+
After the cutscene, you're prompted to [[Executions|execute and kill]] Vlad. Executions are when you target in-mission characters with a [[pistol]] and the reticule flashes red. If you shoot, you will see a bloody death scene. However, you don't have to execute him - you can free-aim and kill him that way.

Enjoy the long cutscene that shows up that concludes the mission. Take a moment to look at the [[Humboldt River|river]].

Uncle Vlad is a mission in Grand Theft Auto IV given to protagonist Niko Bellic by his cousin Roman Bellic from his cab depot.

Mission

Niko enters Roman's cab depot and sees Roman, drunk and upset, because he suspects Mallorie is seeing Vlad, as he saw his car parked at her house. Niko tells Roman he already knew this, which makes Roman get mad at him and call him disloyal. Niko decides it's time for Vlad to pay for what he has done, but Roman begs Niko not to hurt Vlad. Anyway, Niko leaves.

Niko and Roman drive to Comrades Bar. Along the way, Roman continues to warn Niko they shouldn't hurt Vlad, as his boss, Mikhail Faustin, may kill them. Niko doesn't care about this and is convinced the only way to end this is to kill Vlad. When they arrive to the bar, they enter and see Vlad talking to the other people. Niko confronts Vlad and he runs away. The other people at the bar attack Niko, but he avoids them and follows Vlad, who gets in his car and speeds off. Niko quickly gets in the car with Roman and chase Vlad.

Roman repeatedly begs Niko to stop and that Vlad is getting away anyway, but Niko is sure he will come back. They ultimately get into BOABO, where Vlad leaves his car at a small lot next to Humboldt River. Niko approaches Vlad.

Vlad, just standing in front of Niko, starts telling him that he's nothing in the city and that he won't survive without him, since his bosses will not allow someone killing their employees. After listening to him, Niko pulls out a pistol and executes Vlad by shooting him in the head, saying that "nobody fucks with his family".

Niko grabs Vlad's body and pushes it to the water's edge. Roman gets out of the car and sees what Niko has done. He desperately yells at Niko he shouldn't have done anything and that they will end up dead. Niko waits a moment, then sits down and starts telling Roman why he came to Liberty City. During the war, he and his fellows went on a mission that turned out to be a set up. Everybody died except him and two other men. He knows one of them is in the city and wants to find him to ask him why he betrayed his friends. Roman, still worried, tells Niko that it isn't the right moment or place to make such a confession. They then push Vlad's body into the river, and Roman just goes away.
