Go to the Swinger Park and approach the basketball court (but don't enter it) and, using the camera phone, take a photograph of the three men standing in a group in the park and send it to Playboy X.

Bridges has two armed bodyguards who will start shooting at Niko if he gets too close or fires a shot in Bridges' direction. At the same time, Bridges will escape on foot, leave the courts and drive off.
   
An easier way is kills the target by [[Sniper Rifle]] or any weapon Niko able to shoot in his head outside of the park. After Playboy X identifies him, pull out the gun, quickly aim at Marlon's head and shoot him in the park.

The easiest way to kill Bridges is to use a [[Sniper Rifle]] or any other long-range weapon. Wait outside the courts and once Playboy X identifies Bridges, quickly aim at his head and shoot him, after killing Bridges, his bodyguards will go after the player, just escape the area to complete the mission.
   
 
One interesting way of doing this mission by using the suggested long-range weapon is to head to the [[Pay 'N' Spray]] around the corner of the basketball court, and to climb the ladder behind it. Keep climbing ladders to the firehouse's roof. From here, there is a perfect opportunity to [[Sniper Rifle|snipe]] Marlon and his friends without them having a chance to fire back. The player can also climb a housing project and snipe for there, but getting to the top requires climbing several floors and even on the roof it can take a while to place a shot.
Alternatively it is possible to complete this mission without any weapon. After identifies Marlon:
 
# Prepare a vehicle for the car chase later, or go steal a vehicle without trigger any [[wanted level]].
 
# Dials 911 and ask for some cops.
 
# Get in the park and let Marlon escape the park, at the same time Niko run back to his vehicle and chase Marlon. His bodyguard will starts shooting Niko, but the cops will handle them so don't need to worry them anymore.
 
# It is not too difficult to follow Marlon because he usually keep driving on the opposite lane and bumps a lot to other vehicles.
 
# Eventually he will get out from his heavy-damaged car and start runaway on foot. If Niko get too close to him, he will draw his SMG and shoot Niko. Simply run him down with any vehicle to completed the mission. (It is possible to summons cops by 911, but Marlon is immune to gunshots from the cops, so it end up you can see the great battle starts between Marlon and the cops wave by wave until Niko finish him.)
 
   
  +
Spooking the men in any way will cause Marlon to try and escape in a [[Patriot]] parked at the back of the basketball courts on [[Vespucci Circus]]. In the event that this might happen, the player can travel around to Vespucci Circus before taking a picture of the men and shoot out the vehicle’s tires to make the chase easier. This will not spook the men, but it might draw attention from Police, making this a riskier option.
If you aim a gun at any of the gang members before the target is identified, the game forces you to kill ''all'' of them, and you will fail the mission if one of them gets away because of how it would be impossible to find which one was the target without Playboy's comfirmation text.
 
   
 
Be careful, if the player aims a gun at any of the gang members before the target is identified, the game forces the player to kill all of them. The mission will fail if one of them escapes because it would be impossible to identify Bridges before Playboy's confirmation text.

Playboy: "Some motherfucker’s been calling me a phony, calling me a snitch, calling me all kinds of bullshit."
Niko: "Big deal."
Playboy: "Yeah, big deal. Damn right! Until I discovered, that same motherfucker? Well...he’s got some real loose lips."
Playboy X tells Niko Bellic about Marlon Bridges

"Photo Shoot" is a mission in Grand Theft Auto IV given to protagonist Niko Bellic by Playboy X from his penthouse on Xenotime Street in Northwood, Algonquin, Liberty City.

Description

Playboy suspects that drug dealer Marlon Bridges has been 'snitching' on him. He wants Niko to go to the Swinger Park basketball courts on Exeter Avenue and kill Bridges and his friends. Niko doesn't know what Bridges looks like and after unsuccessfully trying to describe him, Playboy gives Niko his camera phone, so that Niko can take a picture at the basketball courts to allow Playboy to inform Niko which one is Bridges.

Mission Objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Go to the Swinger Park on Exeter Avenue.
  • Take a picture of the gang members and send it to Playboy.
  • Take down Marlon.

Walkthrough

Go to the Swinger Park and approach the basketball court (but don't enter it) and, using the camera phone, take a photograph of the three men standing in a group in the park and send it to Playboy X.

Bridges has two armed bodyguards who will start shooting at Niko if he gets too close or fires a shot in Bridges' direction. At the same time, Bridges will escape on foot, leave the courts and drive off.

The easiest way to kill Bridges is to use a Sniper Rifle or any other long-range weapon. Wait outside the courts and once Playboy X identifies Bridges, quickly aim at his head and shoot him, after killing Bridges, his bodyguards will go after the player, just escape the area to complete the mission.

One interesting way of doing this mission by using the suggested long-range weapon is to head to the Pay 'N' Spray around the corner of the basketball court, and to climb the ladder behind it. Keep climbing ladders to the firehouse's roof. From here, there is a perfect opportunity to snipe Marlon and his friends without them having a chance to fire back. The player can also climb a housing project and snipe for there, but getting to the top requires climbing several floors and even on the roof it can take a while to place a shot.

Spooking the men in any way will cause Marlon to try and escape in a Patriot parked at the back of the basketball courts on Vespucci Circus. In the event that this might happen, the player can travel around to Vespucci Circus before taking a picture of the men and shoot out the vehicle’s tires to make the chase easier. This will not spook the men, but it might draw attention from Police, making this a riskier option.

Be careful, if the player aims a gun at any of the gang members before the target is identified, the game forces the player to kill all of them. The mission will fail if one of them escapes because it would be impossible to identify Bridges before Playboy's confirmation text.
