Claude and 8-Ball relationship

Recommended Posts

JohnHenry

Claude helps 8-Ball by knocking out a policeman and opening the cuffs of both and they make a "friendship", 8-Ball takes them to a shelter to change clothes, however when introducing Luigi for him to hire Claude, when 8-Ball enters in the club to settle his "business," he says "Say hello to 8-Ball Ladies", that means he went to relax and did not even call Claude leaving him as any employee to Goterelli. Sal tells Claude to get rid of a car and when he arrives, Latore notifies him that this is a trap, but in case of curiosity in the car he explodes, 8-Ball puts the bomb in the car because he was the only specialist in explosives in the city and cut ties with Claude, along with the rest of the Leones, even though Salvatore was paranoid. 8-Ball finally did not completely help our protagonist and made him get in trouble. What do you think about this?

There's not much to think about since the scenario doesn't include any investigation about the rigged car. It's entirely a matter of imagination.

Interesting theory, I never thought about this!

 

Maybe 8-ball is too scared that Claude was going to rat him out? He probably had nothing to lose anyway after escaping the prison.

Same here.

 

It is just interesting that after some missions you don't have any clue to what happened with 8-Ball after all. As it happens with Ryder in San Andreas. Also, in Salvatore's mission 'Last Requests' as you said the Cheetah was rigged with a bomb and 8-Ball was/is the unique expert about car bombs in Liberty City but maybe it was done by other guy? Who knows.

Do you always feel the need to be such a wet blanket? 😛

 

I've always been a fan of an alternate theory of Asuka and Maria conspiring to get you to work for the Yakuza, using the car bomb as a failsafe in case you decided against meeting Maria at Callahan Point.

Oh yeah, that theory could explain why both of them have uzi. Just sayin'.

The only experts on bombs that appeared in the 3D universe are 8-Ball and one that appears in Advance (he was killed). One reason that makes explicit is that 8-Ball is an associate of Mafia Leone and that Salvatore had him sabotage the car to kill Claude, as he would have "betrayed the Mafia"

But did 8 Ball know the bomb was for Claude? It isn't like he knew the bomb in that one mission was for Marty Chonks, so if anything Salvatore or one of his guys could've just went to 8 Ball and said "I need a bomb for this car" and 8 Ball would've just said "Okay I'm not asking questions"

It would have been cool to play a set of missions abotu the rigged car with Claude discovering 8-Ball didn't know the bomb was for him and killing Luigi Goterelli and Mickey Hamfists. This would leave the gate open for a sequel with Toni and Joey fighting to lead the Leones.
