Huang Lee collecting drugs for his uncle, Kenny Lee

Missed the Boat? is a mission given to protagonist Huang Lee by his Uncle Wu Lee in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars.


Uncle Kenny wants Huang to take a boat and head out to sea to meet a dealer carrying some drugs for him. Huang gets to the stalling boat and quickly heads out to the dealer. Spotted, he then gets back to the shore with the drugs, while being pursued by the coast guards.


Drive to the indicated location after the cut-scene ends. Once there get in the indicated boat. Get to the dealer's boat in two minutes, so motor it away. The boat's engine will soon fail, and a mini-game will appear on the screen that it needs to be restarted. Related instructions are stated in-game. Get to the dealer and he will hand over the drugs. But then a coast guard helicopter will fly over the boat, warning Huang that he is spotted. Escape from the coast guard and head back to the indicated jetty. The boat will stall on occasions, so watch out. A small "Boat Health" meter will appear at the top of the screen, don't let this deplete (or fill in the mobile port). After losing the attacking helicopter head to the indicated jetty whilst avoiding the Coast Guard Dinghies. Destroying them is purely optional. Once arriving to the jetty, the mission is complete.

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Get to the boat at the nearby jetty
  • Get to the mobsters' rendezvous before they leave

Mission Replay Description

"The big boss, Hsin, wanted us to start working with the mob.

Uncle Kenny sent me to bring in some of their contraband coming in by the boat.
