Tricks of the Triad is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars given by Wu 'Kenny' Lee. It's the mission that introduces the game's drug dealing feature.


Huang first meets with Uncle Kenny at his restaurant. Uncle Kenny tells him that business in drug dealing is high, and he needs to make a fortune out of it. So, he tells Huang to go over to his apartment, where he stashed some samples of drugs, and to take them to a dealer who is willing to take them off his hands in Steinway.

First, you'll need to go to your nearby apartment. When you walk in, you'll notice a red toolbox. This is your stash box, which can hide any drugs you have. Click on it, and you'll find the different drug catagories. Only one is available for now, which is Acid. Normaly you can select how much you need, but Uncle Kenny wants you to sell them all. Click on the check sign, and it'll be transfered to your Holdall, the bag which holds all of your drugs to be traded, and ones that have been bought.

Then, drive over to the dealer on your GPS. He'll be marked with a blue briefcase, and is in a Firefly Projects basketball court. Sell all of the Acid, and after that the dealer will tell you something. Security cameras are in the discreet locations dealers pick, and more and more of them are being arrested. Because of this, the prices for drugs are skyhigh, and until the cameras are destroyed the prices will drop.

Shortly after this. another dealer called Danny e-mails you on your PDA that he has some rock-bottom cheap coke for sale. He'll be marked by a coke sign and a red arrow meaning the dealer is selling. Drive over to Meadows Park to meet him, and buy all the coke he has. But then, cops begin to bust the deal. You'll need to stash the coke in your apartment before you get busted, or the police will confiscate it. Once you get back to your apartment, enter it and stash the coke in your stash box. Then, exit and the mission is completed.


(At Sum Yung Gai)

Kenny: My honorable reputation is in the gutter. I'm finished Huang! Finished!

Huang: Really Uncle? Did you wife find your video collection?

Kenny: All of my street dealers are abandoning me. All my years as a noble outlaw are coming to nothing.

Huang: Uncle, let me help. What are you dealing: counterfeit goods, stolen merchandise?

Kenny: My stock is more 'pharmaceutical' in nature the kind that's difficult to legally source.

Huang: Of course - You're a drug lord.

Kenny: A NOBLE drug lord!

Huang: Is there any other kind?

Kenny: But, I don't think I want you getting involoved in the drugs trade, Huang. You're young and will just end up tripped out on ecstasy, with a needle full of skag in your eye and midgets blowing coke up your ass and it'll be my fault! Your father would expect me to protect you.

Huang: What powerful images, Uncle! But I can handle myself.

Kenny: I knew I could count on you to uphold our traditions and finally become a man! I've already taken the liberty of having some 'samples' delivered to your apartment. There's a fine merchant in East Island City who'll be happy to take them off your hands.

(Drug dealing transaction)

Liam:: Man, that's good shit - I can feel my dick shrinking already. I'll have to get on the Mollis later. Now listen. There's a bit of an issue right now. Those security cameras. Every fool in town is getting arrested. Very good for those of us who haven't gone down. Until they come down, prices will just stay high sorry friend - that's capitalism -supply and demand, baby.

(Buying coke from Danny)

Huang: Shit! It's the cops!


Since this introduces drug dealing, the mini game is unlocked for anytime. Finding new dealers will add them to your map, and make sure that you have enough drugs to sell and enough money to buy. Time to time, dealers will e-mail you with special discounts on drugs, or times where they tell you if you sell them a particular type of drug, they'll pay you big time with cash. There are up to 80 dealers to find, and they'll be in discreet locations for you to deal with them.

Since Liam mentioned security cameras, up to 100 cameras are scattered around Liberty City to destroy. The more you destroy, the lower the prices for drugs go down. This is GTA Chinatown Wars's version of hidden packages.

Mission Replay description

"Land of the free, my ass. This place is gonna be land of the freebasing just as soon as I find more dealer contacts.

This town is so full of crackheads, deadbeats, and junkies that I'm gonna be flying home on my own jet - maybe even my own airline.

Still, this city's security cameras are a bitch - maybe I should do something about them. Like I said, land of the free, my ass."
