Based on: The north bay area
San Fierro: Considered by many to be one of the greatest cities in the world, a leading culture and financial center San Fierro has long been portrayed in the media as a city of love and peace do in large part to the hippies of the 60s and for the large part it is. But if you step away from all the art museums and high class theaters you will step into an underground of organized crime and gangs that is slowly tearing the city apart at the seems.
Ridgemont: Sitting just across the bay from San Fierro, Ridgemont has always played the role of the unwanted neighbor to San Fierro. A city filled with viscous street gangs and organized crime Ridgemont has had one of the highest murder rates in the country for decades with no sign of letting up in the near future.
South San Fierro: A mid-sized suburb located to the south of San fierro, South San Fierro is considered by many residents of the area to just be a quiet suburban community where nothing bad ever happens. But in recent years the cities crime rate has been growing as the Triad has begun to expand into the town to increase their drug territory, This move promoted action from the Cruz syndicate out of Ridgemont who also want to sell to the suburbanites. Tensions continue to grow in the area.
North bay: One of the Smallest communities in the bay area, North bay is a town of little over 20,000. Most of its residents are wealthy well off individuals who either made their fortune legitimately in the financial district of San Fierro or most likely as a gang or drug syndicate boss in Ridgemont.
Other locations or landmarks.
Ayala island: A former Prison located in the bay northeast of San Fierro, Ayala island is a top tourist destination long after its time as a prison has ended bringing in thousands of people from all over the country who want to see what remains of it. But little of the tourists know there is a mafia run casino underground on the island. Only accessible if you know the hidden entrance. Which you learn about 60% through the games main story.
Blackmon naval base: One of the largest naval bases in the country located directly south of Ridgemont and only accessible by water. This naval base is home to many of the United states most important naval craft as well as a few helicopters which make it one of the most important military instillations on the west coast. You can commonly find Leviathans, Annihilators and Coast Guard Predators parked here.
Note: The story may break IV cannon by including Tommy Vercetti but I just thought it wouldn't be that big of a deal to bring one character over from the other Era. Otherwise it is in the IV era.
27 year old Jack Steele grew up in San Fierro with his two brothers. Greg (26) and Andy (24). Times were tough for the Steele family growing up and the three brothers turned to the streets to help support the family. They began selling drugs at a young age and were soon bringing in more money in a month than their father made in a year. But tragedy struck when Jack was 19 years old. Their father was gunned down at a local convenience store in what appeared to be a planned assassination. Jack fled the state as he was afraid that whoever killed his father would come for him next. both of his brothers volunteered to stay behind and protect their mother. Jack then went to Vice city where he met a powerful but aging crime lord named Tommy Vercetti who needed someone to help maintain his empire. Jack then spent the next 8 years working for Vercetti and his name quickly became know in the Vice city underground. After 8 years Jack believed it was safe to come back to San Fierro and Tommy believed this was a good opportunity to expand some of his operations into San Andreas and instructs Jack to set up operations in San Fierro. This is where the game picks up.

After you drop off the guys and Jerry's apartment his mission arrow disappears temporarily so you could use this time to complete a mission for Eric until you receive the phone call. Jerry calls you after a little while and says that he wants revenge on the Fengs for assaulting the meeting with the supplier. And wants to teach them a lesson not to mess with the Wang family ever again. He says that the Fengs commonly hang out at a gang owned warehouse in Doherty. He tells you that taking a couple of his men to assault the warehouse would probably teach the Fengs a lesson that their aggression wont go unpunished. After the cut scene hop in a four door vehicle and pick up the two Wangs standing on the sidewalk. Follow the GPS route to the warehouse in Doherty located southeast of Chinatown across from the airport. When you get there pull into the marker arrow near the entrance to the Warehouse. If you dont already have a MAC-10. One of the Wang guys gives one to you with a lot of ammo. Exit the vehicle and walk toward the open garage door of the warehouse. Take cover on the wall and you can see three Feng members sitting around a table inside the warehouse. Open fire on the men and the Wang members you are with will also. Once you clear the three men at the table wait for the second wave. Three more guys come in. They are shooting their MAC-10s so stay behind cover. Once you clear the second wave then continue into the warehouse. Move through the first room and approach the door that opens up to the larger room behind it. Get behind one of the crates and start shooting at the four guys inside that room. Once you clear them out move to another crate. If your Allies die during the mission it is alright. After a little bit of time 3 more men will enter the room and begin shooting. Kill them and continue towards the door they came from. Once you enter the office in the back you find the last remaining Feng he is unarmed and begs for his life. You can either kill him or let him go and choose to let him live. Its your choice. All that happens is that he will show up as a random character later. Leave the warehouse and Jack calls Jaerry to report his success. He then calls Greg and says he doesn't want to get involved in the Triad war. And just wants to do what he was sent here to do. But Greg insists that this is a great opportunity for the family to make some extra money and to keep the Wang's on their good side.

This puts his missions on hold while he is "talking" with Miguel.

Someone who is going to help them get the drugs sold. Enter a vehicle and follow the GPS route north to the apartment along the water front. When you get there pull into the marker arrow.

He denies it and a group of BATE storm the warehouse. Jack takes cover behind a crate. Start firing at the group of cops. Once you gun them down Andrei leaves out the back door and Jack and Brian run toward the exit. Once you are outside take cover behind the nearby cop car.

After you return Eric to his apartment after the failed deal at the warehouse head back over there. Jack says he wants answers from Eric about what happened at the deal. He says he doesnt know what happened and that someone probobly snitched on them. Brian then comes out of the bathroom and sees Jack. Eric tells Jack that him and Brian think they may know a guy who could of tipped the cops off. Eric talked to him about the deal before they went and the guy is a known criminal so it possible that he tipped of the cops for protection from his crimes. He says he was only talking to him because he thought maybe he knew some people who wanted to buy some drugs. But he doesnt know where he lives and he only talked over the phone. Jack thinks this sounds suspicious but doesnt care and he wants answers. Brian tells Jack to use a cop computer to track him down. His name is Jesus Boroda. After the cutscene take out your cell phone and dial 911. When a cop shows up steal his car and evade the wanted level. Once you have lost the heat atop the car and bring up the computer. Go to criminal search and type in "Jesus Boroda" when the search is complete mark his location on the map and head over there. His apartment is in the far south of San Fierro in Foster Valley. Once you have gotten there pull into the marker arrow in the parking lot of the apartment complex. A group of 3 Mexican men are seen standing around a car and Jack exits his vehicle and asks for Jesus' location. Thinking you are a cop one of the men flees. After the cutscene the other 2 men are shooting at you with pistols. Either take them out or just chase Jesus. You ar einstructed to not kill him as he runs to the back of the building and up the stairs. Once he is on top of the building he runs to the other side. He realizes that there is no where left to run and gives up. He pleads he has straightened his life out and doesnt want to be arrested. Jack realizes that Jesus didnt tip of the cops by how he is begging for his life and claims he has changed. You can either execute him or leave him on the rooftop unharmed. Its your choice and if you let him go he will show up later in the game as a random character and offer a few missions but in the meantime your choice has no effect. Once you have made your choice the mission is complete. Jack calls Eric to report his findings.

After you complete Eric's mission "Street cleaning" Jerry's strand is re opened. When you arrive at his house Jack enters the garage and finds Miguel strapped to a chair. Jerry is also in there asking Miguel questions. Jerry tells Jack that Miguel is a drug addict who owes a huge sum of money to the Wang family. Miguel tells of his everyday dealer who operates in Hashbury. Which is located north west of Chinatown. He says that he could have up to $5000 on him at any given time. Jerry tells Jack to head over there and get his money from him. Hop in a vehicle and drive to the marked location in front of a barber shop in Hasbury. When you arrive a brief cutscene shows Eric pulling up by a man who appears to be a drug dealer by every indication. The man sees Jack driving by slowly and quickly runs to his car parked on the street not too far away.

And then tells him to head back to visit later.
Giver: Jerry Han
Head back over to Jerry's house and when you arrive you find out that Jerry has killed Miguel on accident. He says that the boss is going to be angry with him for not keeping him alive. Because not only does he have a debt to the family he is also a local member of the Cruz cartel. So they were going to use him to get information about the gang from him. He tells Jack that they should take Miguels body to a man who buys dead bodies located in Foster in the far south west of San Fierro. They will at least get some of the Debt Miguel owes back. Jack and Jerry load the body into the trunk of Jerry's Sultan and pull out of the garage. As you are driving toward the location a cop sees the blood dripping out of the trunk of the car and you get a 2 star wanted level. As you try to outrun the cops Jerry opens fire on them only making the situation worse much to Jack's dismay. Your level is elevated to a 4 star level. You must evade the cops before you get the body to the purchaser. So use the techniques you have learned so far to evade the police they are fairly hard to evade ona four star wanted level in the tight streets of San Fierro. But once you have evaded them head to the buyer in Foster. If you acquire a wanted level again along the way you must lose it. When you arrive at the buyer's apartment in Foster Jerry directs you around back. He gets out of the car and knocks on a back door. A man dressed in a bloody apron appears and takes the body out of the trunk. He pays you guys $3000 for the body. Jerry gives you $1000 for saving them from the cops and says he will meet you at the Boss' place in Chinatown two blocks east of Jerry's house. This places a W on the map for "Wang triad".

When you arrive you see the man who was in the photo getting into a car. Follow him as he drives west but maintain a good distance so he doesn't spot you tailing him. San Fierro is a busy city so you can get fairly close but if you tailgate him too closely for too long he will notice. Eventually he will arrive at a F.A.R.T station in Gant point. Exit your vehicle and follow him in to the station. He walks down the stairs and buys a ticket. Approach the turn-style and buy a ticket for $5. Follow the man as he walks further down and eventually steps foot on the platform. He stands and waits for the train to come. Wait on the platform as well and when the train comes he gets on. Follow him onto the train and Jack will take a seat and the camera switches to a cinematic camera. The train runs to the station at San Fierro international airport. This is where he gets off. Jack automatically leaves the train. Follow him as he walks back up the stairs and when he passes through the turn-style he goes down a tunnel that leads to a parking garage. Keep a good distance and when he gets to the parking garage he is seen meeting two men in a Jet black Buffalo. Take out your phone and snap a picture of the meeting. After you have a good picture Jack sends it to Jerry's phone. This ends the mission and the snitch gets into the black car and drives off. You can either get back on the train or go up the ramp to the street.
Shoot the Snitch
Giver: Steven Wang
Head back over to Steven's house in Chinatown. There you find Steven along with a new person. A black corrupt cop named Brady Keith. He has gathered the information regarding the Snitch's location in the witness protection program. He says that he is being housed in a house in Rancho Rincon. Steven wants you to go over and deal with him before he turns over evidence to the state by testifying in court. Hop in a vehicle and follow the GPS route to the house. When you arrive Jack exits his vehicle and walks on foot. He sees the house and takes cover behind a car. There are 2 cops standing near a Buffalo in the driveway. Once you regain control of Jack take out the cops out front. Leave your cover and when you reach the driveway two more cops exit the house. Take them out before they do too much damage. Then go up the stairs and into the house. Take cover on the nearby wall and shoot the 2 cops as they come down the stairs at the end of the hall. After you do that continue down the hall and up the stairs. Turn around and take out the cop in the corner of the landing. Continue down the hall and into the bedroom. The room is empty but Jack hears something coming from the closet. He shoots through the door and the body of the snitch falls out. You must escape the house after you kill the snitch. You can either fight your way back down our climb out the side window into the alley. You will fall and lose a little health but you dont have to fight through all of the cops storming the house. Once you are outside the house get into a vehicle and drive to lose your 4 star wanted level. Once you lose it Jack calls Steven and reports his success. he tells you to meet him at the "China King restaurant" in Chinatown.
All the King's men.
Giver: Steven Wang
Head over to the large ornate restaurant in Chinatown. Jack approaches the door and the guards let him in and tell him the boss is upstairs. Jack goes upstairs and finds Steven, Jerry and Brady sitting at a table in the corner. Jack take s a seat and Steven tells Jack that the a local biker game known as the Angels of death have been becoming more aggressive in the criminal landscape recently and they are now angered since one of their men was killed by a Wang triad. As they are talking a man runs up from downstairs and warns of an AOD attack. He says they are attacking from both the front and the back. Brady goes to fight them off in the front and Jack, Jerry and Steven will escape through the back. Follow Jerry and Steven when they go across the bridge that goes over the main floor. Brady is fighting off the AOD who are coming in the front so just follow Jerry as he walks to the other side. Head into the kitchen and take cover along the counter. Take out the 3 AOD who are inside the kitchen. Once you have taken them out move up to the row of ovens in front of you. Take out the 2 AOD who enter the kitchen and then continue to the door. Once you are on the balcony kill the AOD who are in the parking lot below. There are 7 of them. Once you have killed them head down stairs and Jerry and Steven hop into his Presidente. Jerry gets into the passenger seat and Steven climbs into the back seat. He tells you to go to his low lying house in Outer Garcia. Two bikes of AOD pursue you and you must either lose them or kill them before you go to the house. They are hard to lose because their motorcycles are faster than your car. So the easiest way would be to kill them. Once they are dead follow the GPS route to the house in Outer Mission. When you arrive you drop Steven off and he tells you to come back. This places the "W" on the house.
Returning the favor
Giver: Steven Wang
Go back to Steven's house in Outer Garcia. When you arrive Jack finds Steven being patched up from the minor injuries he received during the gun fight. He tells Jack that the Angels of death are not going to get off easy for what they did. If they want war they got war. He tells Jack to head over to their clubhouse with a few of his men and take them all out. You Jerry and two other Wang thugs hop in a four door car. Drive over to the AOD clubhouse in Doherty. When you arrive you and the men exit the car and take cover behind it. Pull out a weapon and shoot the 3 AOD standing in front of the clubhouse. Once you do 5 more will pour out of the front door. Kill them and then continue around to the back door. Take out the 4 back there and enter the back door. Once you are inside the clubhouse you are in a community room with a pool table and TV in it. Head through the door and into the hall. Shoot the lone AOD who is at the end of the hall and then follow the hallway. Head up the stairs and kill the 3 up there. Jerry says that their leader isn't here and must of escaped. You have killed all of the AOD in the clubhouse but more might be coming soon. So quickly leave the building and once you are outside two more ride up on their bikes. Jerry asks you to take him and the other guys to his house in Chinatown. Take out the 2 bikes of AOD if you didn't kill them before you got in the vehicle. Once you are in a vehicle head to Jerry's house and drop him off. He tells you that things just keep getting more violent. This puts the Wang triad strand on hold.
Radio report: After this mission you hear a special radio report about the rise of gang wars in the city. Talking about the destruction of the Feng's drug house and the attack on the clubhouse.
Giver: Ernesto Cortez
After Ernesto calls you following the "In the name of my family" and invites you over. Jack heads over and finds him in the garage working on his car. He sees Jack and tells him that he has received word of some coke that is being held by the Russian mafia at a motel room in Little Moscow. He says that Eric's attempt at selling his drugs is futile and that he never will. So he tells Jack that this is a better option for Jack in order to get some product to help set up Tommy's operations here. He says the deal is 60/40. Jack and Tommy will get 60% of the profits and Ernesto will get 40% He says its a major load and should bring in alot of cash if they can secure a buyer. Ernesto is looking to the Cruz cartel that operates out of Ridgemont. After the cutscene get in a vehicle and follow the GPS route to the motel in Little Moscow. When you arrive Jack parks in the parking lot and watches two Russians heading upstairs and into a room. One of the Russians he recognizes as one he saw at the botched deal in Easter Basin. Take control of Jack and exit the vehicle. Walk around to the back of the hotel and you see two Russians standing around having a smoke. You must engage in a fist fight with them and nor shoot them. It will alert the ones upstairs. So use melee to kill them. One has a knife so you can use the disarm maneuver to take it and use it against them. Once you have killed them your instructed to climb the ladder to the fire escape to the second floor. Once you are there approach the window and Jack take cover along the wall and sees three Russians inside the room. Pull out and automatic weapon and kill the quickly. They ar surprised by your attack and one takes cover behind the bed. He pops to shoot so use that opportunity to kill him. Jack enters the room and finds a large duffel bag filled with coke and puts it over his shoulder. As he exits the room through the front door he is seen by a car load of Russians and they start shooting. Either run back into the room and escape through the fire escape or take cover along the low wall and take out the Russians and leave through the front. If you go through the back once you get into the alley you are attacked by 2 of them. Take cover behind the dumpster and take them out. The easiest way is to climb over the low wall to the other side of this wide alley. go in between the two buildings off to your right and once you are on the street get into a car. If you went out the front way you would simply have to kill all the Russians and get into a car. Either way once you are inside a vehicle Jack calls Ernesto and asks him where to take the coke. He tells him to go to a lockup in Queens. Follow the GPS route there and pull into the marker arrow in front of a garage. Ernesto opens the garage and meets Jack. He puts the bag of drugs on a table in the back and closes the garage. He tells you to come see him back at his house and drives off.
Pigs on parade
Giver: Ernesto Cortez
Head back over to Ernesto's house and Jack finds him on his front porch talking on his cell phone. He hangs up and tells Jack that the owner of the storage facility found the drugs and called the cops. One of his friends is there watching right now and just called him. He wants you to go over there and make sure they dont leave with the drugs. Hop in a vehicle and drive to the indicated location. It is across the street from the lockup and Jack finds Ernesto's friend hiding behind a car watching the cops inspect the bag. Jack says they have to get it back. Ernesto's friend (Who is named Armando) hands jack a silenced pistol that replaces his current pistol. He says they are going to tail the cops to the station and get the drugs back there. The cars leave the are and you and Armando hop in the car and follow them dont get to close or they will know you are following them. They drive to the police headquarters in the Financial and pull around back ad one parks in the front. You and Armando exit the car and sneak around to the back. The two cops exit the car and head to the trunk. Use your silenced pistol to kill both cops. You receive a 3 star wanted level so quickly go to the trunk and grab the bag of drugs. Hop in the car and lose the police. Once you have lost them Armando tells you to head back to Ernesto's so drive to his house and pull into the marker arrow. You and Armando enter the house and give the drugs to Ernesto. He says that they are better being stored here.
Phone Call: After this mission you receive a call that shows up as "Tommy" (Which was previously not in your contact list) It is Tommy Vercetti and he asks Jack how things are going there. He says that he has gotten some coke and has some connections to the organized crime network now. Tommy is happy with Jack's progress and says he is planning a trip there to see you in person.
Giver: Ernesto Cortez
When you return to Ernesto's house you find out he is no where to be found. Armando says that Ernesto is nowhere to be found and is not answering his phone. Jack says they need to find him and he leaves the house. When you regain control of Jack after him and Armando leave the house you receive a text from Ernesto saying that he has been kidnapped and is being held at the Easter Basin docks. Hop in Ernesto's Manana with Armando and head to the Easter Basin docks. Pull into the arrow next to the warehouse closest to the water. When you pull into the marker you and Armando are ambushed by three carloads of Russians who are pinning you to the warehouse wall. Slam on the gas and plow through the car in front of you. Exit your vehicle and take cover behind it. Pull out a weapon and kill the Russians. There are 10 of them. Armando helps you out in the fight, once you have wasted them all another car pulls out of another warehouse and Ernesto is seen screaming from the back seat before he is pistol whipped over the head by a Russian. Quickly hop in one of the Russian gangster's Oracle's as they are faster than the Manana. Give chase to the car as it leaves the docks area and heads north.You can not shoot at the car for fear of injuring Ernesto so you are instructed to run it off the road. It is moving quickly and skillfully through the dense traffic so it is hard to keep up with. If you have not damaged it to the point where the Russians abandon it before they reach the Tram station in the Financial district the Russians leave the car and hijack a Tram. Chase the tram as it moves through the streets along the Trolley line. You and Armando must kill all 3 Russians on the train through shooting but if you are not careful you could kill Ernesto who is lying on the floor of the Tram. Once all 3 of the Russians are killed the Tram grinds to a stop and you and Armando rescue Ernesto. Armando tells you to take them to the hospital in Mercer Square. So follow the GPS route to the medical center near Mercer square's border with Cole Valley. Pull into the marker arrow at the main entrance and Armando and Ernesto are dropped off. Ernesto tells you the Russians stole his phone and sent you the text to lure you to your death. They knew you were the one who stole the Coke.
Note: Ernesto's friend activities will be paused until after he is released from the hospital.
Phone call: Not long after you complete this mission or the last Wang mission (If you completed these first) Greg will call you and tell you he is worried about Andy. He hasn't come home for a couple days and isn't answering his phone. This automatically starts the next mission.
Note: After you reach a point where you have only one mission remaining Andy's friend activities will be disabled and it will just go to voice mail if you call him.
Playing big brother
Giver: Greg Steele
After you have completed both the Wang strand and the Ernesto strand Greg will call you worried about Andy. He hasn't been answering his phone and Greg is worried about him. He tells you to pick him up by the barber shop near your house. After you have picked up Greg he tells you that the last time he saw Andy he was going to go and hang out with Eric. So follow the GPS route to Eric's house in Garcia. When you arrive you find Eric inside working on a car. He sees Jack and tells him he is glad to see him. But Jack isn't as friendly and threatens violence if Eric doesn't reveal Andy's location. When Eric says he has no idea what he is talking about Jack becomes violent and grabs Eric and throws him against his car. He says that he really doesn't know where he is and the last time he checked he was going to meet someone in Hashbury. He says he said something about Burger shot. Hop back in your vehicle with Greg and drive to the Burger shot in Hashbury. When you arrive you find the alleyway behind it empty. Jack says he is afraid of what will happen if they cant find him. Just then Andy calls you frantically saying he is being attacked in an alleyway in Queens. Follow the GPS route to his location. Once you arrive Jack and Greg exit the car and run down the alley. They find Andy rolling around on the ground in the alleyway with no one around him. Jack tells him to get up and when he realizes they are there he thanks them for saving him. He is obviously not right. He says he was being jumped by a gang when there is clearly no body around. Jack looks at him and sees that he is on some kind of drug. He asks whats going on and Andy says that he has been taking Meth lately. He says its "The best thing ever" and then thanks you again for saving him from the gang that jumped him. You and Greg load him into a car. After the cutscene drive to your house in West San Fierro. When you arrive Jack drops Greg and Andy off and he tells Greg to get Andy off the drugs and to not let him out of the house.

Greg & Andy Steele
Giver: Greg and Andy Steele
After you find Andy and return him home the mission marker reappears. Jack returns home and finds Greg and Andy in the living room with Andy lying on the couch and your mom Susan caring for him. Greg tells you to head out to the driveway. He tells you that Andy has been on the drugs for a while now and this was a serious OD. He admitted that he got the drugs from a dealer in Hashbury who operates from the Burger shot there. Where you went but didn't find anything. Jack says he wants to go over there and mess with the dealer but Greg says he should be careful. Jack ignores him and decides to go anyways. After the cutscene Get in the Blista Compact in the driveway that has always been there indicating that it is Greg's. Drive to the Burger shot in Hashbury where you went in the last mission. When you arrive Jack pulls around back and sees the dealer in the back alley selling to some customers. He grabs a bat out of the back seat and exits the car. Approach the dealer and start beating him with the bat. The customers run away screaming. You cant kill the dealer or shoot him. Only beat him with the bat because Jack wants to teach the most painful lesson to the dealer. After his health has been reduced to one bar he falls to the ground and says that he is sorry for selling to your brother. He says he is just trying to support his kids and family by selling drugs and didn't mean no harm. After hearing his story you can either pull out a gun and kill him execution style if you are using a pistol. Or you can leave and let him live. After you have dealt with the dealer the way you see fit the mission is finished.
Optional Achievement: Forgiveness is... 10G. If you call an ambulance for the dealer before you leave the area. The description would just say "Saved the Drug Dealer's life" And there are no specific instructions. Its just something you would stumble upon if you take the most honorable route.
One Night in San Fierro...
Giver: Greg and Andy Steele.
Payout: Springfield rifle.
Head back to your house. When you arrive Greg tells you that he is growing more scared of the Fang triads and their intent to kill you and the rest of the family. He says that they have yet to find out where you live and he doesn't want them to find out or else they would harm your mom. So he knows a man who will feed the Fengs false information on your whereabouts so they will be thrown off on the search. But the man demands payment so you and Greg have to go and meet him up at a space below the Garver bridge in the Financial district. After the cutscene get into Greg's Blista Compact and follow the GPS route to the secluded alleyway beneath the Garver bridge in the Financial. to get there you will have to get to the alleyway that runs in between the buildings the bridge runs over before it crosses the bay. The area is a lot hidden from view by the road and directly under the bridge surrounded by buildings. Pull into the marker arrow in the middle of the lot and a previously unseen man exits a vehicle on the other side of the lot and comes to Greg's passenger side window. As they begin to discuss payment a carload of Fengs pull up into the lot and open fire. Jack, Greg and the man hide behind the car. Open fire on the men in the car and once you have killed all four of them 5 more appear in the windows of the building across the lot. The man scrambles over to his car and grabs a Springfield out of the trunk. He calls you over to his car. So make a mad dash across the 20 foot gap between you car and his and try not to get hit by the bullets. He says you are probably a better shot than him and hands you the rifle. Once you have it zoom in on the building and start to pick off the shooters. Once you have killed them all a sniper appears in the window of another building and shoots Greg in the neck. After he does kill the shooter. Jack and the man run over to the car and find that he has already died. Jack is filled with anger and even begins to cry. But the man says they better get out of here and let the police handle the body. You will be able to get it at the coroners office later. So you and the man hop back in Greg's Blista compact and the man tells you he knows somewhere to go in Ridgemont. Follow the GPS route as it leads you onto the Garver Bridge and across the bay. As you are crossing the bridge he says that his name is Packie McReary and he moved here from Liberty City a couple years ago. He says that he moved in with his cousin named James McReary in Ridgemont and that is where you are going. When you arrive at the house in Creekfield village in eastern Ridgemont you drop Packie off and he tells you to stay at an apartment he has been renting down the street. So drive there and when you arrive Jack goes up stairs and screams in anger. He sits at the table and throws a glass against the wall and calls his mom on his phone as he weeps. He tells them what happened to Greg and tell them to go to the Morgue and claim his body. He says that he is fine and has a place to stay. Your mom tells you to get some sleep and she will call you when she has the body. The game then prompts you to save your game at the bed in the bedroom. So go in there and save the game and Jack will go to sleep. When you wake up the next morning a "P" appears on the radar at the house you dropped Packie off at.
Note: After you complete this mission the next time you get into a vehicle you will hear a report on the radio saying the earthquake threat on the bay are has been lifted and all the bridges are now open. The entire map is now accessible and the F.A.R.T runs the whole route and Taxis can now take you to the other areas.
Safehouse unlocked: Packie's apartment.
The Unlucky Irish
After you take a nap and save your game at Packie's apartment head down the street to the "P" marker. Jack approaches the front porch and expresses anger toward Packie. He blames him for letting his brother die. He says that the Fengs followed him to the meet and he should of been more careful. Packie says that he had no idea that he was followed or even how they even knew he was going to meet you and Greg. You two go inside and meet Packie's cousin James McReary. He is the head of the local Irish mob and tells Jack he is sorry for what happened to his brother. Jack says that his mom and his brother are going to go Downtown and claim the body and that he expects there to be a funeral sometime soon. Packie says that if there is a funeral he will attend out of respect towards Greg. James then says that he has some business to attend to and asks Jack if he can help him. He says it will just be an easy drive along the coast and will help take his mind off of the situation. He wants you and Packie to drive to a house in North bay and get some money for him. He says it shouldn't be much of a problem. After the cutscene hop in Jame's Sultan with Packie and follow the GPS route that leads into the hills north of Ridgemont. The route leads you into the North Bay area. Keep driving until you reach the large house all the way at the end near the entrance to the Gant bridge. Pull into the driveway and you and Packie approach the front door and find a box sitting on the doorstep. Packie takes it and you get back in the car. After you have the package Packie tells you they need to drop it off at a barber shop in Queens San Fierro. So follow the GPS route across the Gant bridge and into San Fierro. The toll on the Gant bridge is $5 and if you crash through the gate you incur a one star wanted level. Once you arrive at the drop you are ambushed by the Fengs. Jack is frustrated once again. Kill the Feng attackers. There are 3 of them. Once they are dead you have a 2 star wanted level. Flee the wanted level and take Packie back to his cousin's house in Ridgemont.
Giver: Andy Steele
After you complete the first Packie mission your brother calls you and says they are ready for Greg's funeral. You must go to Packie's apartment and put on the suit in the closet. After you put on the suit head to Packie's cousin's house and pick him up. Drive to the church located in Cole valley in San Fierro. Along the way Packie says that he went to a funeral a couple years ago that didn't end too well. When you arrive people are seen entering the church and you emerge 2 game hours later. You, Andy, Ernesto and Packie are the carrying the casket. You put it in the back of the Romero and just as you are about to get in a car load of Fengs arrive. Take cover behind the hearse and take out the Attackers. After you do Packie says that he sees some coming up from behind the church. Head over there and kill the 5 Fengs coming up the side alley. Hop in the Romero and drive to the Cemetery in the Brazil district in South East San Fierro. When you arrive two carloads of Fengs are waiting at the entrance. Exit the car and take them out. Drive through the cars blocking the entrance and approach the grave. Jack bids farewell to his brother and Packie says that this funeral worked out the same way his brothers did a couple years ago. After the cutscene Jack calls Steven Wang and says he is sick of the Fengs constant attacks on them. And wants to settle the debt. This puts his "W" on the radar and Packies logo re appears.
Ernesto's friend activities are reopened after this mission.
Opening old wounds
Jack returns to Packie's place and he says he is sorry about what happened at the funeral and that they are lucky they came out alive. His cousin appears and asks Jack if he is willing to do some work for him from now on. Make some money and help out his family. He says that he is willing to. James tells him and Packie that a guy from the Marino crime family they have been hunting for a while is going to be arriving at the San Fierro airport later today. jack says he dealt with the Marinos when he was in Vice City. And that he was once sent to kill a guy named Vito but failed and he got away. James says that's the guy. Jack and Packie head out to go to the airport. Hop in a vehicle and follow the GPS route to the entrance of the cargo bay of the San Fierro airport. You and Packie sneak in undetected and you don't get the wanted level. Packie says that Vito is going to be landing in a private helicopter near their location. He says that he will be heavily guarded and they will need to take out all of his guards as well. You and Packie take cover behind a shipping container as the helicopter is beginning to land. % guards are spread among the shipping containers. Right before the helicopter lands you and Packie hands you a silenced pistol. Kill the 5 guards with the pistol so you don't alert the others. When the helicopter lands Vito and 3 guards exit. Open fire on the group and 2 return fire. Vito and the last guard make a dash to the car parked not too far away. Kill them before they reach the car. If they do reach the car you will have to chase them and destroy the car. But either way once all of the targets are dead you and Packie get a 3 star wanted level. Enter a car with Packie and lose the cops. If Packie dies you fail. Once you have lost the cops drive back to James' house and drop Packie off. He says that his cousin will be grateful for Jack's assistance.
Man of action
Return to James' house. He tells you that the Marinos are not happy about the death of Vito. But no one saw what happened so they are safe for now. But he says that there are still some things that need to be attended to. He says that one of their men has been kidnapped by the Marinos and is being held in an abandoned apartment building near the port. They don't know exactly why he has been kidnapped but he needs to be rescued before he says something. Packie will go with to help out. He doesn't expect things to go easy. Head on over to the old derelict apartment block near the port of Ridgemont. When you arrive Packie says that they should go around back and fight there way up to find him. He believes that they want to keep him alive so they wont kill him until the last moment. Follow Packie as he heads down the alleyway and around to the back door of the 3 story building. You and him enter the door and hear screaming coming from the upper floors. Kill the man coming down the stairs before he sees you. If you use your silenced pistol it doesnt alert the others unless he sees you and manages to yell or fire a shot. Head up the stairs and on the second floor there are 3 more Marinos. Kill as many as you can before you are seen. The floor is almost gutted except for a few standing walls. And most walls are just shells. There is various furniture spread about the area. Take cover behind anything solid and kill the Mobsters. After you kill the first three 2 more will appear. Take them out and Packie heads upstairs. Follow him up and get behind the overturned table at the top of the stairs. the screaming is heard from the back of the floor. Take out the 5 Marinos and move closer to the back. 2 more appear from the back room and after you take them out move into the back room. A man is seen tied to a chair and he is shot in the head by a mobster. Packie kills him and cars are heard speeding up and car doors slamming. You and Packie get ready to fight out. You start behind a sofa in the main area. Kill the three mobsters who come up the stairs. Move towards the stairs and head down. Get behind something and take out the 5 mobsters on the second floor. You will have to move around to different points of cover to get angles to take them out. After you do head to the main floor. Exit the building and get in a car with Packie. Another car of Marinos appears and pursues you. Destroy the car or lose them. After they are dealt with return Packie to James' house. Packie says that something is going on. Maybe they do know that they were the ones who killed Vito.
More missions to come later........
The gameplay in San Fierro stories will be a mix of 3 era and Gta 4. With San Andreas level character customization and RPG elements such as weapons skill and character stats (Muscle, Fat, Stamina etc..). But the graphics and physics engine is 4 era. The armed and unarmed combat is also like Gta 4.
Evading the police will be the same as Gta 4 with emphasis on escaping the circle and avoiding the cops. Each city has its own police force but use the same vehicles. North Bay is serviced by the Ridgemont police department and South San Fierro has its own police cruisers but not motorcycles. All areas rely on the B.A.T.E for assistance in the higher levels.
* = One maybe 2 foot police come to investigate the disturbance and may try to attack you with melee weapons or shoot you if you are holding a gun.
** = More cops come to bust/kill you and will pursue you in vehicles until you lose them. The police will shoot on sight.
*** = Helicopter join the chase now making it much harder to escape. you will also see more police in pursuit.
**** = BATE (Bay area tactical elite) Join the chase. they are more well armed than the average cop carrying MP5's. you now have two helicopters pursuing you and even more standard police units.
***** = An increase in ground units. A third helicopter also joins the chase and more BATE appear. More police in cars and on motorcycles will also appear and will shoot to kill.
****** = Almost unsurvivable. The national guard joins the effort equipped with M4 assault rifles. The sky now buzzes with 5 Police helicopters at all times and the streets are swarming with BATE and Standard police everywhere you go.
HUD and radar
The HUD and radar share similarities with the GTA 4 HUD and Radar. GPS routes are brought over and the HUD disappears when not being used and comes into use when you are using it. (changing weapons, shooting, Spending or receiving money and attaining or losing a wanted level)
The cell phone in San Fierro stories serves all the funtions that the one seen in GTA 4 does. You only have one cell phone throughout the game and it can be customized to include different backgrounds, ringtones and colors. You can buy all three of these things from the. VIP ringtones website like on GTA 4. The overall appearance of the phone is similar to the Motorola RAZR and includes a quick opening animation when bringing it up.
The San Fierro bay area has a large public transportation network that is available for you to use. Your options are listed below.
F.A.R.T: Stands for Fierro Area Rapid Transit. This is a rail line that services San Fierro, Ridgemont and South San Fierro. This exists as an underground subway when it is in San Fierro and Ridgemont and as an above ground train as it ravels through South San Fierro and when it is crossing the bay between the two cities. Works like the subway on GTA 4. You buy a ticket for $5 that allows you to access the platform and when the train arrives you get on the train and ride it to your destination. Before South San Fierro and Ridgemont are unlocked the trains just runs up to the barricade on the tracks and then starts to go in reverse and it repeats this pattern. But when you unlock the other areas the trains will run in a continuous loop. There are 2 tracks with a train that goes in each direction.
