For the mission with the same name in Grand Theft Auto IV, see Rigged to Blow (GTA IV).

Some effa has wired my wheels to blow. If I lose those wheels, my rep on the street will be dead. Pick up my car and take it over to the garage on St. Marks, a'right yo. Let them diffuse that, let them take care of that bomb. The clocks ticking and the wiring is messed up. One pot hole too many and that thing could blow. Now move it!

Rigged to Blow is a mission in Grand Theft Auto III given to protagonist Claude by Red Jacks leader D-Ice from a public phone booth in the Wichita Gardens neighborhood of Shoreside Vale, Liberty City.

If the player has completed Rumble prior, this mission becomes the only repeatable mission the player will receive from D-Ice. It is one of 3 missions repeatable in this game.


D-Ice's Infernus is rigged with a timed explosive. He instructs Claude to drive the car to a garage in Saint Mark's, Portland to defuse the bomb. The bomb is sensitive, so too much damage to the car will detonate the bomb. After the bomb has been defused, the car is returned in perfect condition to the original parking spot. If the car is damaged, the player must repair it before delivering it.

Mission Objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Get in D-Ice's car.
  • Get to the garage but watch out if the car takes too much damage it will blow.
  • Take the car back it has to be in perfect condition - no damage.
  • Get out of the vehicle.


The reward for completing the mission is $20,000. Completing the mission for the first time unlocks Bullion Run.


Video Walkthroughs


  • During this mission, no gang members, including Colombian Cartel, will attack the player on the streets unless they're attacked first. This effectively allows the player to return to Saint Mark's without worrying about being attacked by the Leone Crime Family.
  • Using a Pay 'N' Spray won't change the car's color, despite the on-screen message says otherwise.
