Drive-By is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, given to protagonist Carl Johnson by his brother Sweet from his house in the Ganton neighborhood of Los Santos, San Andreas


Sweet, Big Smoke, and Ryder have decided to perform some drive-bys on Ballas gang members and Carl decides to be their driver. The crew arrive by a number of spots where Ballas gang members usually hang around and perform a couple of drive-bys, killing every gang member attacking them. After finishing off every enemy gang member, they catch police attention and manage to lose it by driving to the Pay 'n' Spray in Idlewood. They drive back to Grove Street and decide to stay away from any heat for the rest of the day.


Ryder: I can drive as well as CJ, man, I'm telling you.

(Sweet laughs, Carl arrives)

Ryder: Hey, homie, whassup?

Carl Johnson: Hey, what you saying about me, fool?

Sweet: Wassup, man?

Ryder: I'm saying that the East Coast made you drive like an idiot, fool! Man, you always crashing cars and shit. And for some reason now you back, all it is, is 'CJ drive here, CJ drive there.' Bullshit!

Sweet: Man, why don't you take it easy.

Ryder: No disrespect, man, but you can't drive for shit!

Carl Johnson: Thanks, man. No, no, no, say what you really mean.

Sweet: You such a good gunman, homie, you gotta ride shotgun. Show CJ what's cracking.

Ryder: Hey, you know something - you're right. Yeah, CJ, you can drive, homie.

Sweet: He's trippin'.

(In the car)

Ryder: Where we going, homie?

Sweet: Rollin' Heights Ballas country.

Ryder: Do us a little drive-by, huh? You know somethin', matter of fact, you're our chaffeur for this little gig. C'mon.

Carl Johnson: Gee, thanks G.

Ryder: Just don't drive like no fool.

(Arrives at Jefferson)

Sweet: Yeah - Ballas turf. You dogs ready?

Carl Johnson: Yeah, for sure, I'm ready.

Sweet: Carl, just concentrate on the driving and we'll take care of the shooting.

Ryder: Listen to the man, fool! And try not to park us up a tree or something.

Sweet: Yeah, if the car stops, we're dead meat.

(After killing the first group)

Big Smoke: We iced them! CJ, let's hunt down some more!

(After killing second group)

Sweet: That was way too easy! Let's go blast on some more Ballas fools.

(After killing third group)

Ryder: What you waiting for, CJ? Find us some more Ballas so we can cap 'em.

(Group kills last group, police on their trail)

Sweet: Smash on it, Carl, smash!

(After losing the cops)

Sweet: Yeah, Grove is back, man, Grove is back!

Carl Johnsno: Yeah for sure. They was slippin' man!

Ryder: Man. I'm shocked you didn't get us killed, CJ! Let me check myself. Am I dead?

Sweet: Hey, Carl, ignore that motherfucker, you did good today.

(They arrive in Grove Street)

Sweet: You're down with the Grove and the Ballas know it, so watch yourself from now on, CJ.

Carl Johnson: Yeah, yeah, for sure, you know that. I'll see y'all later.

Big Smoke: Here, take this, go get yourself some beers.


The reward for completing this mission is $500 and increased respect. The missions Home Invasion and Sweet's Girl are unlocked as well. Ballas gang members become also increasingly violent against Carl Johnson and will attack him every time he's spotted driving past them.
