Huang Lee and Rudy D'Avanzo

The World's a Stooge is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars given by Rudy D'Avanzo to the protagonist Huang Lee.


Huang meets D'Avanzo, who says that the recorder Huang recovered from Jimmy Capra's car, proves that Capra is indeed the rat inside the Triads. Rudy then sends Huang to kill everyone mentioned in the recording.


There will be three different targets marked on the map: One in Star Junction, one in Middle Park and one in a Speeder near a pier in Middle Park West; all three of them will be surrounded by bodyguards. Go get the target in Star Junction first, kill him by just running over him with any vehicle. Be careful, if he manages to run away, he will enter in a vehicle. Next, get the one in Middle Park. Try to eliminate him using any Assault Rifle to avoid getting too close to him and his bodyguards, if the player takes too long to kill the target, he might try to escape on foot. Last, get the one in the boat. Pass his bodyguards, grab the Micro-SMG by the end of the pier and hop in the Wet Ski. Ignore his bodyguards in Wet Skis and focus on the target. Keep shooting his boat until he explodes. Once all three targets have been eliminated, the mission is completed.
