Should I kill Francis or Derrick?

Recommended Posts

GTAIV2008

I prefer to kill Francis as his trip to the grave is shorter.

The only reason why I kill Francis is cuz it follows Niko's moral code. It hurts though tbh.

Neither of them are good people, but I end up killing Francis most of the time.

I used to kill Francis cause I thought he was an asshole, but now I kill Derrick, because honestly, both of them are pieces of sh*t, the difference is Derrick is a useless piece of sh*t.

Firstly, I usually killed Derrick, but however on recent playthroughs I had a lot of sympathy for Derrick so I killed Francis instead. Francis was someone who I never liked really and had no interest at all. Some of his missions were okay, but some of the things Derrick said were funny.

I killed Derrick, with the way we see Francis he would've got his sooner or later, or he'd put a bullet in his head sitting at his desk. Either way, their both f*cked.

Thanks. :)

 

And no, I'm not "supposed" to kill Francis. I'm supposed to kill whoever the f*ck I choose.

 

And yes, he is a useless piece of sh*t.

Francis will you give you a lot of money, but he's an asshole. Derrick will give you no money, but he's a "nice" guy to Niko, and since Niko has some distorted sense of "moral" code, he would probably kill Francis.

It might have been easier killing Derrick anyway because he was living a crap life, and was high most of the time. Killing him, might have put him out of misery. Derrick wouldn't have lasted long if you choose him to survive anyway.

In V Packie confirms Derrick died either way anyway, so you're right.

Whoever chose chose Francis, then did the Revenge ending is sickening to let an old lady like Ma McReary be alone and rotting to death.

Well, I'd rather kill Derek.

Look at things this way: you will put old heroin addict ex-terrorist out of his misery and squeeze corrupt cop for money and other benefits, like getting heat off your ass.

It's a hard decision - kill a drug addled crook or kill the asshole detective who has been using Niko to do his dirty laundry. I kill Francis because after all Niko had done for him he still belittles Niko and says he will put Niko away if he doesn't kill Derrick. Also there's no 2 wanted stars when taking Francis to the grave and shorter drive there plus less enemies. I believe there's two enemy vehicles to get rid of instead of just one.

Whoever chose chose Francis, then did the Revenge ending is sickening to let an old lady like Ma McReary be alone and rotting to death.

But Packie is watching Ma, Packie even calls Niko to take the photo of Gracie because he says he would do it himself but Ma is still upset.

Personally, I picked Derrick to kill. I like how Francis ability to take away 2 stars off your wanted level when you need to!! Great deal if u ask me! He also pays pretty good too. Not sure what Derrick pays for killing Francis tho. Heard it just makes Packie like you better or something??

Francis for me. He's always threatening and manipulating Niko to do his dirty work (even if he pays). I personally feel that he's the sort of character that would have never let Niko out of his pocket. There'd always be another job for Niko, someone else that Francis needed killing. And one day Niko would have been on that killing list.

Just did this myself today literally 5 minutes ago--Actually decided to change my mind on this one. Flipped a coin and landed on tails--So tails means kill Francis. I know Derrick doesn't pay but there's always money to be made so I'm not 100% worried about it.

At first I killed Derrick because I heard that he takes away your wanted level(Only works until the final mission and only once a day) but then I went back and killed Francis (after asking for a raise first of course) and that's how I usually do the mission unless Im doing a bad choice play through.

Francis was an absolute swine, but Derrick had a past as a terrorist (along with Aiden and Bucky). I have always eliminated Derrick.

I always kill Francis, because it makes more sense to Niko's story. Kill the corrupt cop who can always blackmail you into doing jobs for him, now he's dead, he can bother you no more.

No, Francis was a good corrupt cop. He asked for nothing more after Derrick was killed. Instead, he lent a helping hand to Niko.

Nah but in a roleplay state of mind, what if Francis later down the line continues to bully or blackmail Niko into doing his dirty work, threatening to expose his criminal history and illegal immigrant status ? Good corrupt cop or not, I see it fit for Niko to get rid of him all the time. Once Francis is gone, Niko dosen't have to worry about any future threats from him.

They're both scum bags when you really think about it which IMO makes this choice the least black or white of them all. On the surface Francis appears to be the worst, but Derrick's just a junkie that turned informant and was the one who got Aiden thrown in prison. Snitches are bitches in my book and can't be trusted.

Sure Francis is a bit of a dickhead, but he has his uses as he offers a bribe. I don't see him as a future threat when Niko has the UL Paper Contact in his back pocket and Francis probably has no balls to mess with him anymore.

Anyway Derrick offers nothing so I choose him the majority of the time.

I killed derrick... Francis gives you a cool reward but 80% times he wont answer the phone. Also in blood brothers you can call francis and he will say do you want a bonus or some sh*t if you say yes he will give you 20000$ instead of 10000$
