I'm jonesing for some fries
Gordon talks to Niko when he gets to the safehouse

Ransom is a continuation of the mission I'll Take Her in Grand Theft Auto IV. The mission also appears to crossover with The Ballad of Gay Tony mission Ladies' Night.


Gracie Ancelotti's father doesn't believe that Gracie is kidnapped, but thinks she is out with "some guy", so Niko heads over to the safehouse where Gracie was dropped off at the end of the last mission to take a photo of her to send to her father. Niko hits Gracie to get her attention and takes a photo of her on his mobile phone. The mission is completed upon Niko leaving the building.

Mission Objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Go upstairs to the safehouse.
  • Take a photo of Gracie.
  • Get out of the building.


  • If the player leaves the building and tries to re-enter the apartment after Niko finishes his phone call with Patrick and the mission is complete, the door will be locked and the apartment will be inaccessible. If Niko is in the room at the time, it will be empty and he will be unable to exit. The only way to fix this is to commit suicide or reload a save.

  • Gracie can be shot in the foot without failing the mission. If she is shot too many times, however, she will be killed.
  • If the player returns to the apartment after taking Gracie's picture and kills Gordon, Niko will respawn outside the apartment and the mission will not fail.
  • Gordon can be seen watching pornography on TV during the mission, but the image is blurred.
  • This mission can be done while on a friend activity. If the player brings Packie along, Niko will not call Packie after leaving the safehouse, nor will either of them make any comments to one another about the mission. Gordon will also not recognize Packie and will still act as if Niko was alone.
    • This mission can also be done while on another mission.
  • This mission leads up to the events of Ladies Night in TBoGT, which is then followed by She's a Keeper.
