The Tow Job is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, given to protagonist Huang Lee by Personal Investigator Wade Heston from the Bohan Industrial district of Bohan, Liberty City.


Mission Brief

Wade wants some Korean gangbanger in jail. His car is being towed. He wants you to steal the car and then cause some carnage. After that he wants you to park it outside the police station and run off, then the Korean can be framed for the crime.


Make sure you have plenty of SMG ammo and a few Molotov Cocktails. First off take the nearby car and drive to your destination. You will see a Recovery (flatbed Tow Truck) with the Korean's car on the back. Shoot the tow truck until the driver runs out, you can also ram it to oblivion but its easier just to shoot. Waste the driver. Then go to the indicated position on the side of the truck and play a minigame where you must turn the winch to lower the vehicle. Once it is lowered get in the vehicle. Now you need to get a two star wanted level. Throw some molotovs at cars, pedestrians and anything that moves to get a two star wanted level. Once it has been obtained you need to head to the police station and park it outside. Then the mission is complete.


(At Heston's Safehouse)

Heston: The assassins that took your silly sword are in all probability some Korean Gang bangers, members of the Midtown Gangsters.

Huang: Those Koreans have been loyal to our family for years. They wouldn't betray us!

Heston: News flash, amigo. They don't want to be Triad bitches no more. They want to be daddy. They want independence and their assassins are gonna make sure they get it.

Huang: By stealing Yu Jian?

Heston: They took it to upset Hsin Jaomingand disrupt his relationship with your uncle. And, in order to upset them right back, I've planted some smack from a little personal stash I keep, in one of their cars.

Huang: Your personal stash of smack? You're a junkie?

Heston: No, I'm not a junkie, I'm a hypocrite which is much worse. I only use on weekends, usually. Hey, walk a mile in my shoes, buddy. I don't need your shit. If we're gonna draw out these Korean assassins, make sure the LCPD busts that car.


There is no monetery reward for this mission, however the next mission, The Tail Bagging the Dogs, is unlocked.

Mission Replay description

"Heston's full of shit. Seriously. He's convinced the Midtown Gangsters stole Yu Jian, and he wants to get their attention.

He planted drugs in one of their cars, and got me to make sure the cops found it. The sooner this loser forgets about me the better."
