Amphibious Assault is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas given to protagonist Carl "CJ" Johnson by blind Chinese-American San Fierro Triads leader Wu Zi "Woozie" Mu from his apartment in the Chinatown district of San Fierro, San Andreas.

Note. This mission can only be started between 20:00 to 6:00 and requires the player to have at least one quarter of the lung capacity bar filled.


Woozie tells Carl he can't swim. He easily panics just thinking about the water. Because of this, he wouldn't be able to do something he's been planning - to swim to a Da Nang Boys-owned ship out at San Fierro Bay and plant a bug in it. So, instead, he wants Carl to do this. He first disagrees with the idea, narrating a humorous story he was involved in back in his childhood, making him somewhat afraid as well. However, once Woozie admits that he is, in fact, blind, and would not be able to use his other senses in the water, Carl agrees to do the task, feeling somewhat sympathetic for Woozie.

Carl makes his way to Esplanade North, near Pier 69. Once there, Carl dives to the water. He first navigates through a rock formation. Afterwards, he sees and avoids the Da Nang Boys patrolling the ship and the sea in Tropics. He also avoids the search lights planted on the tanker. As he arrives at the freighter, he quietly makes his way to the back of the ship, either by avoiding the guards' attention or by killing them. He eventually arrives at the back of the ship, and plants the bug. Afterwards, he quickly gets out of the ship, and swims back to a dock in Esplanade North.

Alternative Mission Script

(Carl and Woozie are playing a video game.)

Woozie: I need something taken care of.

CJ: What? Hey, quit trying to distract me, man.

Woozie: How are you in the water?

CJ: What you mean, can I swim?

Woozie: Yeah. Can you swim well?

CJ: No, I can't. (gets defeated and rises) Shit, man! Damn! (to Woozie) How do you that?

Actual Mission Script

CJ: Hold on. You tryin' to tell me you can't swim?

Woozie: Seriously, when I'm in the deep water, it panics me, plus, I'm terrified of eels, and squid, and seaweed, and...

CJ: OK dude, see - I know you just trying to make excuses now!

Woozie: Look, CJ, I need someone from outside the Triad who I can trust.

CJ: A'ight, so let me get this straight. You want me to swim around in dirty dock water, dodging little brown jelly beans and Vietnamese gangsters, to put a bug on a boat in the harbor?

Woozie: You're so negative!

CJ: (comes close to Woozie) Listen, man - when I was a kid, swimming off the Santa Maria, I once got a condom stuck to my face. (Woozie laughs) Horror like that stays with you for life, believe that.

Woozie: I have a confession to make... I'm... I'm blind.

CJ: No shit!

Woozie: Yes, although I've trained my other senses to a point where you wouldn't notice my handicap, in the water they'd be quite useless.

CJ: Alright, Woozie, relax. Don't beat yourself up about it. Look, I'll do it. (leaves and just turns about as if to ask) Uh, one last thing. You do know that I'm black, right? And not Chinese.

Woozie: (laughs) I'm blind, Carl, not stupid.


The rewards for this mission are an increase in respect and $11,000. The mission The Da Nang Thang is unlocked.


  • If the player has not yet improved lung capacity enough, a special cutscene would be triggered. While playing on the CJD 500, Woozie asks Carl if he can swim well; Carl responds in disagreement. The game would then tell the player to improve lung capacity by diving underwater for the mission to be continued normally.
