For the PS2 Version of this mission, see Under Surveillance/PS2 Version.

My police source indicates that the FBI has mounted a surveillance operation at key locations around the city. It is too late to contact anyone and avoid incrimination. Take out these spying cops, but be careful... they're bound to have back up.
Asuka Kasen

Under Surveillance is a mission in Grand Theft Auto III, given to protagonist Claude by Yakuza co-leader Asuka Kasen from her condominium in the Newport district of Staunton Island, Liberty City.


Claude drops by Asuka Kasen's condo, and she introduces him to her brother Kenji. Asuka informs Claude that the FBI establishes a surveillance operation around the city. The player is required to track down and eliminate three groups of surveillance crews waiting at different spots within 6 minutes and 30 seconds, but may deal with them at any order. They include:

Firing or getting too close to the targets, will result in them firing back at Claude if he is in their sights. Once all targets are killed, the mission is passed.

Mission Objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Take out the three groups of spies.


The reward for completing this mission is $15,000 and the unlocking of the next missions, Paparazzi Purge for Asuka Kasen and Kanbu Bust-out for Kenji Kasen.


Video Walkthroughs



  • The Rumpo used by the FBI in this mission has a unique jet black color. It cannot be seen as a normal vehicle on the streets, and matches other vehicles used by the FBI in both GTA III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. It can be obtained by killing two gunmen inside via firing at the vehicle and luring them out to kill, then the van can be kept on the player's own without failing the mission. A video of this can be seen here.
  • If Claude drives or walks below the building in Torrington, the FBI agents will start shooting at Claude, but will not be able to hit him due to the steep angle. A video of this can be seen here.
  • In the PS2 version of the game, Asuka talks about Mafia and the subtitles match with what she says. In the PC version Asuka talks about the FBI and the subtitles don't match. A video of this can be seen here. This was corrected in the Definitive Edition.
  • After completing this mission, map icons for Pay 'n' Spray garages and Ammu-Nation shops no longer appear on the radar, so it is advised that players make a mental note of their locations for future use.
