Heston: "The assassins that took your silly sword are in all probability some Korean gang bangers, members of the Midtown Gangsters."
Huang: "Those Koreans have been loyal to our family for years. They wouldn't betray us!"
Heston: "News flash, amigo. They don't want to be Triad bitches anymore. They want to be daddy."
Wade Heston may know who robbed Yu Jian

The Tow Job is the first mission in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, given to protagonist Huang Lee by Personal Investigator Wade Heston from the Industrial district of Bohan, Liberty City.


Mission Brief

Wade wants some Korean gang banger in jail. His car is being towed. He wants Huang to steal the car and then cause some carnage. After that he wants Huang to park it outside the police station and run off, then the Korean can be framed for the crime.


Make sure having plenty of SMG ammo and a few Molotov Cocktails. First off take the nearby car and drive to the destination. A Recovery (flatbed Tow Truck) with the Korean's car on the back will be seen soon. Thrown the molotov and then shoot the tow truck until the driver runs out, or it is also possible to ram it, making it oblivion but its easier just to shoot, or simply jack the car after getting front of the truck with a right distance. Waste the driver if necessary. Then go to the indicated position on the side of the truck and play a minigame where Huang must turn the winch to lower the vehicle. Once it is lowered get in the vehicle, the player now needs to get a two star wanted level. Throw some molotovs at cars, pedestrians and anything that moves to get a two star wanted level. Once it has been obtained simply head to the police station (but do not destroy the vehicle) and park it outside. Then the mission will be completed.
