Miguel seems to think I'm mistreating him. Still, he's revealed the extent to which Catalina fears your quest for revenge. She has three death squads dotted around Liberty, whose sole job is to hunt you down. Act as the bait, and get the death squads to follow you to Pike Creek where some of my men will be waiting for them.
Asuka Kasen

Bait is a mission in Grand Theft Auto III given to protagonist Claude by Asuka Kasen from the Panlantic Construction Company construction site in Fort Staunton, Staunton Island, Liberty City.


Asuka, after having caught Miguel, at the construction site, is torturing him in order to get more information about Catalina's plans against Claude. She informs him of Catalina planting three death squads around Liberty City to kill Claude. He's forced to search Shoreside Vale for each of the death squads and lead them to a trap set by Asuka; a waiting group of well-armed Yakuza members. Each gang consists of four Colombian Cartel gang members driving in Sentinel's and they can be found at Pike Creek and Cedar Grove. Once all of them are killed, the mission is complete.

Mission Objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Locate the death squads and lead them into Asuka's trap.
  • If any of the Colombians exit the car outside of the trap area, then the mission will fail.


The reward for completing this mission is $35,000. The mission Espresso-2-Go! is also unlocked after completing this mission.

Video Walkthroughs




  • The Sentinels driven by the Cartel squads are damage proof and tip proof, so they will take no damage from ramming and will not catch fire if flipped over. However, the special properties cannot be saved in the player's garage. The Sentinels are otherwise vulnerable to bullets, flames and explosions.
  • If a Cartel car is destroyed by any means before leading it to the ambush, the mission will fail, telling the player that they failed to lead the death squads to the ambush.
