Paper Trail is a mission given to Niko Bellic by United Liberty Paper. This Mission is one of the missions that are not triggered by going to the bosses destination; instead, it is triggered by a phone call from ULPC after Dust Off. United Liberty Paper's mechanics have finished inspecting the helicopter. Now, Russian businessman Eduard Borodin finally needs to be brought down. Niko will be phoned and directed by his contact to a landing strip in Northern Algonquin where Little Jacob is smoking in the passenger seat of the helicopter.

  • After completing this mission, thereafter if Niko gets involved in a high wanted level situation and gets wasted or arrested, soon afterwards he'll get a phone call from U.L. Paper berating him for getting into trouble.
