Chapter 3 - GTA IV MKC Strategy Guide

A Long Way to Fall - Ray Boccino [Zero Kills]
Use the shoot-in-the-leg trick all the way through the mission.

Taking in the Trash - Ray Boccino [Zero Kills]
No Strategy required - just good driving skills!

Meltdown - Ray Boccino [Zero Kills]
Use the shoot in the leg trick for all of the enemies outside. Use the stampede trick to end Luca's miserable days.

[You can also complete this mission by calling for Dwayne's Backup - they will shoot all the assailants on your behalf but you still have to use the Stampede Trick to kill Luca]

Museum Piece - Ray Boccino [Zero Kills]
To make the escape from the museum easier you can destroy all the black PMP 600s that are outside. There are three outside the entrance where Johnny is waiting, another parked close to the hot dog vendors and artists stands the fifth PMP 600 is parked in an alley opposite. If you destroy all the cars you will be fired on when you leave the building but the attackers will not be able to give chase and you can easily get away. If you decide to enlist he assistance of Dwayne's backup, make the call after destroying the cars before meeting up with Johnny at the door.

Inside the museum use the shoot-in-the-leg trick to clear out all the assailants. This has to be done carefully to avoid accidental head-shots. When you get to the stairs to the lower level, there is a second wave of attackers. Some of them magically appear in the areas that you just cleared so go back and remove these assailants. It is also a good opportunity to take aim at the attackers on the lower floor of the museum. Go down to the lower level and make sure that all enemies have been taken care of, collect the armour vest. Head to the double exit doors with full health and armour (if possible). Change your weapon to the first or pistol so that you can sprint. Make a mad-dash from this point [these enemies are immune to non-player], barging into the attackers along the way prevents them shooting at you whilst you race past. It should be possible to make it to the health pack on the ground floor. Make another mad-dash to a vehicle and escape to complete the mission with zero kills.

[Dwayne's Backup can be used in this mission but it provides very little assistance and in my opinion only makes the mission more difficult because they tend to obscure your view and are not effective at killing the heavily armed attackers]

No Way on the Subway - Ray Boccino [Zero Kills]
A scripted motorcycle chase, no need to fire weapons. Just follow the bikers until two becomes one - and avoid being caught up in the explosion. When the scripted chase ends, knock the biker off his motorcycle and use any technique appropriate to kill him without gaining credit. The stampede trick works.

[You can use Dwayne's backup for this mission, with one of the New Holland Hustlers riding pillion - this can be useful at the end of the chase because your passenger will shoot the biker on your behalf]

Weekend at Florian's [Zero Kills]
No Strategy Required.

Late Checkout - Ray Boccino [Zero Kills]
Steal a Helitours Maverick and fly it to the box junction close to Ray's restaurant. Begin the mission  and collect the helicopter, fly to the Majestic Hotel, land in the wide area of road, in front of middle park, beside the Majestic Hotel. Enter the yellow marker just inside the doors of the hotel. Turn around and leave the hotel and return to the Maverick. It will have mysteriously moved to a position opposite the hotel. [You can call for Dwayne's Backup at this point and they will get in the helicopter with you as long as it is still on ground]. Fly to this nearby building shown in the screen-shot - take a path right over the top of the Majestic Hotel to make the enemies appear. 

From here, you would walk to the corner of the building, Majestic Hotel in direct line of sight of Protagonist
From this rooftop position you can safely take out several of your targets including one of the main targets for the mission. To do this use the shoot-in-the-leg trick with an assault rifle. There will be one character that emerges from the building that will be out of range with the assault rifle, don't bother with this assailant. Fly the Maverick to the lowest point of the Majestic Hotel's roof where you can easily land - this is the area with the window cleaning elevator. Use the shoot-in-the-leg trick to kill all the assailants outside the building and those inside. You can do this easily by taking a good vantage point on the stairs and using cover when under attack. The main targets in this mission can not be killed with the shoot-in-the-leg trick. You must either allow Issac to live when given the option or use the stampede trick to kill him. The final target (best to leave the bedroom until last) can also be killed with the stampede trick. Now you just need to leave the building and escape from the police.

Use the shoot-in-the-leg trick to clear a route back to the helicopter (if still usable) or use the elevator. Once you have received a call from Ray the mission is complete, although you still need to lose the attention of the police (two star wanted level).
Actions Speak Louder than Words - Gerry McReary [Zero Kills]
After the bomb has been detonated use the shove-object trick to crush the assailants using vehicles for cover. Use the exploding car trick for the remaining enemies, often the last enemy in this mission is the hardest to get because of his ability to move position just prior to a vehicle explosion. (Quite annoying - he also sometimes gets trapped in silly places).

I Need Your Clothes, Your Boots and Your Motorcycle - Gerry McReary [Zero Kills]
When the scripted motorcycle chase ends shoot out the tyres of your target's motorcycle. Eventually the rider will lose control of his motorcycle. You can use the stampede trick to complete the mission.

Smackdown - Derrick McReary [Zero Kills]
Use the exploding car trick to kill the attacker outside of the building. Use the shoot-in-the-leg trick to dispose of the attackers inside the building including Bucky Sligo who will be at the top of the stairs.

[Dwayne's Backup can be used for this mission - The New Holland Hustlers are poor at shooting when not in a vehicle and they soon get shot after entering the house]

Babysitting- Derrick McReary [Zero Kills]
During the boat chase don’t fire any weapons. Keep in line with the enemies boats and let Derrick do all the shooting. The ideal scenario is that you will be left with one enemy boat during the helicopter sequence. Shoot the helicopter at the tail when it is over the water (not above the bridge). Set the remaining boat alight by shooting at out-board motor. You may require a little bit of luck to get the zero kills.

Tunnel of Death - Derrick McReary [Zero Kills]
The first part of this mission is simple enough. Park the truck across the tunnel and use the shoot-in-the-leg trick to take out all the N.O.O.S.E and police officers. Packie does very little (if anything) to help. Work quickly, don’t leave Packie floundering for too long, because he tends to blow up a vehicle and kill himself in the process. After you gain control of the Police Enforcer, ensure that you do not run over any of the bodies lying on the ground. Escape from the tunnel and lose your police wanted level. Dump the Police Enforcer at the pick-up point and transfer to the get-away vehicle. Take Aiden to the cliff’s and persuade him to take a swim, you can do this by simply walking into him until he falls over the edge.

Blood Brothers - Francis McReary [Zero Kills]
No Strategy Required - Note that the outcome of this mission will change the location of the funeral during the mission Undertaker. I would recommend killing Francis McReary, not only because he is a bent cop, has an ugly moustache and wears that awful flat cap but because his funeral is at the cemetery on Colony Island.

Undertaker [Zero Kills]
When the shoot-out begins, call Dwayne and ask for backup. Take the vehicle that his friends arrive in and encourage them both to get into the vehicle. Now drive close to the Albanian assailants to encourage Dwayne's friends to shoot the Albanians. Do this for all the new waves of attackers as they arrive. When they are dead drive the hearse to the funeral to complete the mission with zero kills. If this takes place at Colony Island you can grab the armour pick-up before saving.

Hating the Haters - Bernie Crane [Zero Kills]
This is not a hard mission, but it can take a very long time to complete with zero kills. Follow the hater through Middle Park, taking great care not to run over any of the peds that are knocked down by the motorcycle. After leaving the park, shoot out the tyres on the motorcycle and steal a car. Use the car to knock the hater from the motorcycle. Knock him down with the car, then move the hater by walking into him, you can push him along to somewhere where he can not escape. An enclosure for example. Then use the exploding car trick to kill the hater.

The Hater is Trapped in an Enclosure!
Union Drive - Bernie Crane [Zero Kills]
This mission consists of a scripted car chase. During the car chase stay back a little and remain on your own side of the road. Use the exploding car trick to take out the two blackmailers.
The Exploding Car Trick Strikes Again!
Buoys Ahoy - Bernie Crane [Zero Kills]
After the scripted boat chase has ended, use the shoot-in-the-leg trick to take out all the Russians.

I'll Take Her - Gerry McReary [Zero Kills]
No Strategy Required.

Ransom [Zero Kills]
No Strategy Required.

She's a Keeper - Gerry McReary [Zero Kills]
No Strategy Required

Diamonds are a girl's best Friend - Gerry McReary [Zero Kills]
Use the shoot-in-the-leg trick to take out all the assailants in this mission. Packie will kill the two goons at the end of the mission or you can use the stampede trick.

Truck Hustle - Phil Bell [Zero Kills]
There is a cool way to complete this mission with zero kills. When the mission begins and all the assailants in the alleyway begin shooting, make a mad dash to the wall on the protagonist right (when the cut-scene ends) and climb onto the rooftop. Run to the exit of the alleyway, and go slightly past before ducking behind the wall to take cover. The truck should now be approaching which means all you have to do is chase after it on foot and jump on the back. Steal the truck to complete the mission with zero kills.

Catch the Wave - Phil Bell [Zero Kills] 
This mission can be a little bit trickier than some of the others to get the zero kills. It is not the enemies that are the problem as such, the main difficulty (as with several other missions) is keeping another character alive. You actually gain control of the protagonist before the Russian has finished speaking so get out of the van early. Use the shoot-in-the-leg trick to keep Phil Bell safe. This has to be done quickly, so I would recommend an assault rifle for this task. When Phil Bell asks for you to cover him, make a mad dash for the boat. There is an armour pickup on the ground outside if you require it. Get into the boat and speed away allowing Phil to catch up to you which results in not having to fight with the enemy boats. Exit at the jetty to complete the mission with zero kills.

To Live and Die in Alderney - Phil Bell [Zero Kills]
The mission begins with a scripted car chase from the Old House in Alderney. As soon as the cut-scene has ended accelerate and swerve the car immediately to the left to avoid the Federal Agent getting hold of the car. If he gets a hold of the car it is hard not to pick up kill or sustain a loss of health. There is no need to fire any weapons during the scripted car chase. When the chase ends, immediately steal the police car and use it to block the alleyway at it's narrowest point, the position of the police car is vital. Make a mad-dash from the police car to the hospital car park directly ahead. This is the location of the get-away van. Take the van and collect Phil Bell and Frankie (if he has survived) or collect the stash (if he has perished). Drive back to the safehouse to complete the mission with zero kills.

Pegorino's Pride - Jimmy Pegorino [Zero Kills]
This mission can be fairly difficult, it is one of those that can go either way. Drive to the meeting with the Pavano's. Go to the yellow marker and step into it, when the cut-scene ends, swap weapons to an assault rifle. Ensure that your position allows you to see the all of the white car that your enemies drive to the meeting. You will need this wide view when the action begins. During the stand-off select your first target and wait for the assailants to begin the violence. Use the shoot-in-the-leg trick to kill all the assailants that are attacking Jimmy Pegorino before they kill him. This is a hard part of the mission, if successful you will be notified that you have to rescue Jimmy Pegorino from the Pavanos.

Make a mad-dash from the look-out position to the outside, you can use the shoot-in-the-leg trick again or simply continue the mad-dash along the outside of the building. You can take out the guy on the roof with one shot in the leg. Ignore all the others and you should be able to make it to Jimmy Pegorino without taking too much damage.

A scripted car chase ensues and takes you to another area of the old Oil Refinery. Use the shoot-in-the-leg trick on the three enemies that emerge from the crashed get-away car. Find the remaining memeber of the Pavanos, get quite close to him and use a gun to bring him to the ground and then use the stampede trick to regain Jimmy Pegorino's offering, which is a back-pack. Drive Jimmy Pegorino back to Westdyke in Alderney to complete the mission with zero kills.

Payback - Jimmy Pegorino [Zero Kills]
This mission can be a little bit tougher than it looks at first glance. The scripted car chase is the easiest part but you have to be careful not to hit any of the bodies left in the wake of the leading vehicle. Staying a little further back from the leading car makes this easier and avoids taking damage from the assailants gunfire.

The shove-object trick can be used to good effect on some of the attackers in this mission. When enemies take cover behind an object give it a push with your vehicle to crush them to death. In the end you should be left with 2-3 assailants hiding in the car showroom. Deploy the exploding car trick to cause a chain reaction of explosions.Be wary of gaining a wanted level during the mission due to the high level of police in the area. You can lose a 1 star wanted level but going to 2 stars makes the mission a lot tougher to complete with zero kills.

Trespass - Phil Bell [Zero Kills]
Use the shoot-in-the-leg trick throughout this mission. When you get to the rooftop, shoot the helicopter in the tail with a RPG (Rocket Propelled Grenade). The reason is that the occupants will be killed (or removed from the game) by the helicopter crash. If the occupants were killed by the RPG outright the kills would count against you in the game stats.

Flatline - Jimmy Pegorino [Zero Kills]
After pulling the plug on Anthony make a mad-dash out of the hospital to your get-away vehicle. You can collect the health pack on the hospital wall if required. Use the spray shop to lose the police wanted level.

Pest Control - Jimmy Pegorino [Zero Kills]
Arrive in a Fire truck and begin the mission. Drive ahead of the target vehicles without touching them or firing any weapons. Ensure that you arrive at the fuel station first, and park the Fire Truck so that it obstructs both target vehicles. You should have enough time to get a good distance away before the cars arrive. Shoot the fuel pump nearest to the Fire Truck to cause an explosion. If you are lucky all the enemies will be killed in the explosion/s. Otherwise use the exploding car trick to kill any remaining assailants.

Entourage - Gambetti [Zero Kills]
Collect Bobby Jefferson and drive to the road block. When the attack begins follow Jefferson down the alley, climb onto the roof of the building. You can not use the shoot-in-the-leg trick during this mission. You can shoot the enemies to cause them to fall to their deaths from the roof or other high structures. Use the exploding car trick to kill all the other attackers. You can get a police car and request back-up but this is a painfully slow method. Drive Jefferson to the conference to complete the mission with zero kills.

Dining Out- Gambetti [Zero Kills]
Park a Fire Truck across the alleyway to block Kim's exit route. Shoot out the tyres of the car (and the motorcycle) parked behind the restaurant. Use the stampede trick to kill the receptionist and use the shoot-in-the-leg trick to kill everyone else. When Kim tries to escape he will drive the car into the Fire Truck repeatedly until it his car sets on fire and explodes. You can observe all this from a safe distance!

Liquidize the Assets - Gambetti [Zero Kills]
Use the shoot-in-the-leg trick throughout this mission. Most of the rooftop assailants can be killed by causing them to fall with a single shot to the leg with an assault rifle. I prefer to steal all the vans and blow them up in the street outside.

It is possible to complete Chapter 3 with zero kills.
