Staunton Island

Staunton Island

Kenji Kasens Missions

Important! You must do all of Kenji’s missions before completing the mission 'Waka-Gashira Wipeout' for Donald Love. Otherwise, you will be unable to achieve the 100% completion rating for the game!

Mission: Kanbu Bust Out

Reward: $30,000

Once the mission starts, go find a Police Car. (One brought before the mission is also okay.) Head over to 8-Ball’s Bomb Shop in Newport to rig it with a bomb, then head to the new destination on the map, the Torrington Police Station.

Stop next to the gate and head inside to the back. Park in the blue marker, arm the bomb, and get out and run to another vehicle nearby. Once you get in and the bomb has freed the Yakuza guy, drive up next to him to let him in the car.

Now, go along the tunnel nearby and pick up the Police Bribe to lower your Wanted level to two stars. Continue back to the main road and head over to the Dojo in Bedford Point to finish the mission.

Mission: Grand Theft Auto

Note: Bring a fast car (e.g. Police Car, FBI Car, Stinger, Cheetah, Infernus…) to this mission to maximize ease.

Once the mission starts, you’ll have to go across Staunton and collect three sports cars, then bring them to a garage in Newport. This garage is very near the Pay 'N' Spray, so if you manage to dent up the car, you’ll be able to repair it easily enough.

So, anyways, the cars. You'll have six minutes to get them all there in, as previously mentioned, mint condition.

There is a Stinger in the parking lot behind the Liberty Tree complex. Get it first, then use the Blista near the Newport garage to head to the parking lot of the Rockford hospital for a Cheetah. Deposit it in the garage and re-grab another Blista. Head to the Coliseum in Aspatria and you’ll find the Infernus in the Coliseum parking lot.

Mission: Deal Steal

Reward: $25,000

Before starting this mission, grab some Uzi ammunition. It would also be helpful to grab a Yardie Lobo from Newport.

Once the mission starts, you’ll need to find a Yardie Lobo first. I often find mine in Newport. Once you grab one, head over to Liberty Campus to pick up the Yakuza contact.

Then drive to the Rockford hospital parking lot. Park in the blue marker to start the ambush. I’d prefer to drive-by the four Colombians first, then destroy their Cruisers. This will almost finish the mission. Then just grab the briefcase nearby and return to Kenji’s Casino in Torrington to finish the mission.

Mission: Shima

Note: Before the mission starts, get some Sniper Rifle or Rocket Launcher ammunition.

After starting the mission, we’ll need to go to three businesses across Staunton to collect protection money. The first one, near Love Media, goes on easily enough.

The second is in Bedford Point. As you approach, you will be shot at by a Diablo gang member. Is this a sign of things to come? Regardless, squish him beneath your tires and pick up the briefcase.

Then head to Aspatria for the third business to find that they've been robbed of their protection money; obviously, it was the Diablos.

Head over to Hepburn Heights on Portland Island now. There, you’ll note the El-Train station nearby. From atop there, fire your Sniper Rifle or your Rocket Launcher to kill the Diablo group with the briefcase.

After killing them all, grab the briefcase and drive back to Kenji’s Casino to finish the mission.

Mission: Smack Down

Note: I recommend bringing along a very fast vehicle, or one that can really push through traffic. The Banshee, Cheetah, Infernus, Stinger, Coach, and Firetruck are all ones that come to mind.

Rewards: $8,000 + $1,000 extra per pusher killed.

Once the mission starts, you’ll need to go around Staunton and kill off at least eight Yardie SPANK pushers. They are marked by the green dots on the map. They appear at random and eventually disappear.

So, yeah, the basic idea is to go towards the one you think is nearest you and squish him beneath your tires. You’ll need to kill eight to finish this mission successfully; each extra one brings along another $1,000 for you. Woo.
