Zeroing In is a playably voluntary but canonically mandatory storyline mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas accessed independently by protagonist Carl "CJ" Johnson under the inspiration of electronics expert and RC store owner Zero from Carl's garage in the Doherty district of San Fierro, San Andreas.


Mexican-American Varrios Los Aztecas gang leader Cesar Vialpando, Carl, and mechanics Dwayne, and Jethro are playing cards, until Kendl Johnson comes in and reprimands them. She tells them that they should be doing what they are supposed to do; make the garage a successful business. A little later, Zero shouts out that he has developed a tracking device which notes the location of a desired vehicle based on cellphone calls made by the driver.

Carl and Zero go out of the garage. Carl gets inside an Alpha, and then Zero explains how the device works. After Zero is done, Carl immediately follows the desired vehicle. Once close enough, he clips the end of the desired vehicle, performing a PIT maneuver, forcing the driver of the vehicle to get out. Carl then gets in the vehicle, and takes it back to the garage.


(Kendl walks in as Dwayne, Jethro, Cesar, and Carl are playing cards.)

Cesar: Read 'em and weep, cabron.

CJ: Oh, shit!

Kendl: So this is it, huh, the great new business venture that's supposed to save all of our worthless lives?

CJ: Wanna get in?

Kendl: Look, I thought this was supposed to be our foot on the ladder. I thought we were going to make this place work?

CJ: Hey, it may look like we're playing card, but we actually planning.

Cesar: Don't worry sweet baby, we're about to go get our first project!

(Zero comes shouting.)

Zero: At last, it works!

Kendl: What works?

Zero: Oh, just a simple bit of electronic wizardry and intellectual bombast that hacks into the state-of-the-art satellite immobilization technology on board our target vehicle! Ahhh, me...

CJ: (stands up) I don't know what he just said, but it's on!

Zero: (as everyone else goes behind him) Yes, it's on! Wait... what's on?

(Outside, Zero explains his device.)

Zero: Here, this gadget is set to pick up on cell phone signals. Each time she makes a call it will give you the new location. You'll have to stay close if you're going to get an updated position though.

(The screen shows a woman going towards a Uranus.)

Zero: OK?

CJ: For sure. good lookin' Zee.
