Drug Running

To start the mission enter the premises, approach a gang member and press the R3 button (PS2) or the Up button (PSP). The point of this mission is to arrange drug deals with other people. A lot of different outcomes in the deal can occur.


The people you're meeting with could attack you and try to take both the drugs and the money. And the deal could go good without legal attention or it could go good but with the Drug Enforcement Agency (D.E.A.) monitoring the handover. If this happens you have to get back to the warehouse with a 3-star wanted level. Also the deal could be interrupted by an enemy gang, whereas you must kill them and get back to where you started. Also if this happens they will attack you more than once.

Fake Merchandise

Sometimes the people you are meeting with could try to hand over fake drugs. In this case you have to chase them down, kill them, and take the money, and drugs back to the warehouse where you started.
