No Son of Mine is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories given to protagonist Toni Cipriani by his mother Ma Cipriani from her restaurant in Saint Mark's, Portland, Liberty City.


Toni drops by his mother's place, looking to finally win her over. When he arrives, she is talking on the phone. After finishing her conversation, she tells Toni how much he has disappointed her. She then informs Toni that she has called a hit on him and admonishes him to "at least try to die like a real man". Toni, however, is in disagreement with Ma's view of the matter, choosing instead to show that he could ward the attackers off and survive.

In the mission, the player is required to fight off four waves of hitmen, who appear with increasingly lethal firepower (first with only pistols, followed by TEC 9s, Micro-SMGs, and AK-47s). The player is given three pickups, including a pump action shotgun, a Micro-SMG, and health. If the player successfully fends off the hitmen, the player passes the mission.


Toni Cipriani: Ma? You there?

Ma Cipriani: Toni? ...I'm just on the phone...

(Ma continues with her phone conversation)

Ma Cipriani: ...yeah he's here now... ok... ok... I'll stall him... bye.

(Ma ends her phone conversation)

Ma Cipriani: Toni? Come to upset your mother again, huh? You spend all day playing the tough guy. You never come see me, or bring home any nice girls. But, who'd want you anyway? You look so pasty and thin! You're trying to kill me with the shame and the worry. Well no more. From this point on... we're through. I've called a hit on you. It's really the only way, Antonio...

Toni Cipriani: What!? Ma!

Ma Cipriani: You were always a disobedient boy. It's for the best son... at least try to die like a real man! Try to stop shaming me!


There is no monetary reward for completing the mission. After completion, more of Ma Cipriani's hitmen will attempt to kill Toni while the player isn't on a mission. The hitmen are armed with Micro-SMGs and AK-47 rifles. The only way to stop them from coming after you is to complete the mission Making Toni, which is unlocked later in the game. Provided the player has passed Blow Up 'Dolls', Contra-Banned, and Overdose of Trouble, completion of No Son of Mine should unlock Salvatore's Salvation for Joseph Daniel O'Toole.


  • The cars the hitmen use are black Sentinels that have a very special "pushing" force. Each Sentinel doesn't lose speed or direction while hitting another car but is extremely vulnerable to damage, and a high-speed crash will set them on fire.
  • The name of this mission is a reference to the song of the same name.
  • A phone call from Joseph Daniel O'Toole may be heard after the mission if the player has already completed Blow Up 'Dolls' for JD, Overdose of Trouble for Maria Latore, and Contra-Banned for Salvatore Leone. The phone call, however, is unlikely to be intended to occur after this mission. The script can be found here.
