Going Deep is a mission in the downloadable content for Grand Theft Auto IV, The Ballad of Gay Tony. It is the first mission given to the protagonist Luis Fernando Lopez by Ray Bulgarin.


In this mission, Luis Fernando Lopez must silence some crooked investigators of Marki Ashvilli's who have got some evidence against Ray Bulgarin and Timur, that could send them to jail. The paid-off group on NOOSE, FIB, and Liberty City Police Department officers plan on raiding Bulgarin's car and planting evidence to use against him. Bulgarin wants to take the initiative and kill of all Ashvilli's private agents before they can get to him.

  • The sticky bomb that Luis puts next to the Landstalker is silent.
  • When replaying the mission over, once the second FIB Buffalo arrives, one of the agents will be holding a suitcase, yet seemingly "firing" it like a SMG, however once killed, the suitcase disappears.
  • The garage is accessible before and after the mission, along with its vending machines. Uncommon vehicles such as the Voodoo occasionally spawn there.
  • If Luis already has sticky bombs in his inventory, he will decline Ray's offer of providing more. The exact wording of this isn't always the same.
