This is a list of all missions in Grand Theft Auto III, sorted by type, island and mission-giver. There are 50 storyline missions, 17 phone missions, 4 off-road missions and 4 remote-controlled missions, for a total of 75 missions.

However, as the player is forced into completing the missions “Give Me Liberty” and “Luigi’s Girls” back to back, the two missions count as one in the in-game mission count. The same happens with the missions “S.A.M.” and “Ransom”, bringing the mission count down from 75 to 73 in the stats.

Story Missions[]

Portland[]

Claude is betrayed by his girlfriend Catalina when she shoots him during a bank heist, leaving him for dead. He survives and is arrested, but on the way to the penitentiary, the Colombian Cartel ambushes the convoy to kidnap another prisoner, destroying the bridge in the process and isolating the island of Portland from other parts of Liberty City, and he and another prisoner named 8-Ball manage to escape. With his new allies, he eventually forms a connection with the Leone family by destroying the neighboring Triads and Forelli family. He finds out that Catalina has become a co-leader of the Colombian Cartel, and eventually destroys their ship filled with the drug SPANK. However, Salvatore Leone, the Don of Leone family, has grown paranoid and no longer trusts anyone. So when his wife, Maria, lies and says she and Claude are having an affair just to spite him, Salvatore sends Claude to his death by planting a bomb in a car he ordered Claude to take away. Maria finds out and warns Claude just in time and, along with Yakuza leader Asuka Kasen, they leave Portland on a boat to Staunton Island.

Portland has 22 missions and eight phone missions for a total of 30 missions.
