Staunton Island

Asuka Kasens Missions

Mission: Sayonara Salvatore

Rewards: $25,000, Jobs from King Courtney, BF Injection in Hepburn Heights and Hostility from Leone Mafia

After a rather … um, interesting … conversation, you’ll learn that you’ll need to kill Salvatore. No problem. He’s going to be leaving Luigi’s club in three minutes (real life time) to his house. We have to kill him at some point.

I prefer that you use a Sniper Rifle for this mission, obviously. Drive over to Luigi’s club in the Red Light District with a fast car; a Yakuza Stinger is often near Asuka’s condo.

Once you arrive at Luigi’s, go atop the roof of the building across the street. Aim down at the entrance to Luigi’s club and wait until Salvatore (the guy with the arrow) comes out. Waste him.

Mission: Under Surveillance

Rewards: $15,000, Jobs from Kenji Kasen

Get some Sniper Rifle ammo and a few Grenades before this mission. Apparently, the Mafia is looking around for you. (How they knew you killed Salvatore is odd, isn’t it?) Anyways, there are a few surveillance posts throughout Staunton Island. We have to kill the guards at each of them in six minutes and thirty seconds .

Begin by going to the park in Belleville. There is a lake at the north end of the park. Go there and use the Sniper Rifle to take down the guards.

Next, go south towards the next surveillance post in Bedford Point, near the Liberty Tree complex. Go to the east side of the area where the guards are, into the narrow alley, and behind their vehicle. Drop a Grenade and enjoy the show.

Now, the third post is perhaps the most difficult. Go north into Torrington and to Kenji’s Casino. Climb up to the top of his casino and, at the top, look at the building on the other side of the street to find it riddled with six more armed guards. Snipe them all down to win.

Mission: Paparazzi Purge

Note: You may want a bit of Uzi ammo before starting this mission.

Reward: $10,000

Okay, a simple mission. After the mission starts, find a Predator police boat at the docks and go northward to the guilty voyeur. It is best to do this mission at a time when the seas are not raging (i.e. sunny, mildly cloudy).

Anyways, chase down the target and shoot at him as you go. You’ll go around Portland Island back to where you started if you don’t finish him off quickly enough. (You CAN shoot with the Predator, you know…) Once you return to the start, he’ll leave his boat and head onto land, where he’ll enter a Stallion car.

scoffs If you take this long, hurry up and chase him down, then drive-by him or knock his car over.

Mission: Payday for Ray

Rewards: $11,000 and Jobs from Ray Machowski

Note: Get a fast car before this mission.

Once you start, you’ll have three-and-a-half missions to go through a few payphones across Staunton Island.

Begin by going to the one in Torrington, then the one in West Belleville, then the one on Liberty Campus, then the one in South Belleville. Afterwards, you’ll lose the timer and be told to go to the toilet block in the park.

Cool. Nothing better than a dirty restroom. Anyways, proceed into the park, then into the center where the restrooms are. Walk into the blue marker to meet with the crooked cop, Ray Machowski. You'll also end this mission.

Mission: Two-Faced Tanner

Important! You must finish this mission before doing Donald Love’s 'Grand Theft Aero' mission if you want a 100% Completion score !

Reward: $20,000

You will also want a heavy, fast vehicle. The Firetruck is the best you can do for now. The Uzi is also a decent idea.

Anyways, drive to the designated place to the northwest near Kenji’s Casino. When you arrive at the spot, you’ll now be forced to kill the guy within the vehicle.

So ram him hard with the Firetruck. If you're lucky, he'll flip and end this mission pretty quickly. If not, you're stuck with a 5-Star Wanted level, so we REALLY need to work fast.

Continue trying to ram the guy and flip him or at least push him into traffic, as he’ll bail if his car’s damaged enough. (And then he’ll likely be squished, what with all of the kamikaze FBI Cars after you.) You also do drive-bys at him or the Cops, hence the suggested Uzi. Once Tanner’s dead, you win.
