You know how when you go to get missions for Leon Mccaffery, the marker on the minimap that leads you to him is an "R", right? Why is the marker an "R"? There's no "R" in his initials, and I can't think of anything "R" stands for.

I also wondered why is Leon's initial marker "R" instead of "L" or "LM".

I always thought it was because he was next to a river. No other explanation really, perhaps he was going to have a different name, and they never bothered to change the icon?

QUOTE (Grand Theft Wiki. Leon McAffrey article)
In Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, it's possible that Ray Machowski was the original mission giver as a blue 'R' is seen on the map.

On my new playthough that I'm doing now, I'm currently at Leon's missions. I just noticed over the weekend that there's a red "R" at his mission location.

In the games files it's listed as "radar_McRay".

When I first saw this thread, I didn't remember if it was true or not. But later, I remembered that there was a mistake like that during Liberty City Stories and it got me really thinking about it when I played LCS before.

Now I can't stop thinking about it. whatsthat.gif

I think this is a leftover from a certain stage of the game's development that was not removed. But I think 'R' would have to stand for 'Ray Machowski' as it did in GTA III - Ray's appearance with Leon is proof of this. What goes further is sheer speculation so I will leave it.

But as a matter of fact, I never thought about it much. I just played... As I always do.

Well, you can say that GTW cannot be trusted but it doesnt mean that statement is incorrect, does it?
I suppose you could just ask Rockstar if you really wanted to through [email protected]
