GTA IV Missions Progression

GTA IV Missions Progression Guide

Latest posts by Tommy Verrcity (see all)

Rockstar outdid themselves when they launched Grand Theft Auto IV. The latter is a massive step up from its predecessors and set new standards for gaming as we know it. However, if you are anything like me, you probably need a GTA IV Missions Progression to show you how to progress through missions.

When I played GTA IV for the first time, I spent 70% of my time roaming around the map not knowing what to do next. And when it came down to the actual missions, I failed. A lot!

So, to help avoid the hell I wasted half of my life in, here is a simple guide to guide you through every mission. Before we get into the guide, here is a rule of thumb:

The mission will fail if you get wasted, busted by the cops, or if you fail to protect your partner. In addition, do not leave your partners behind, destroy their properties, or abandon the mission after you started it. The result is mission failure and you will be forced to do it all over again.

Question: What is the hardest mission in GTA IV?

Answer: There are a couple of missions in GTA IV that players struggled with. For instance, many had to redo Three Leaf Clover because it involves a lot of FIB, NOOSE, and LCPD shooting at the player.

Another mission that players may find difficult is Catch the Wave. The main reason why this mission is hard is that Phill Bell is an easy target and gets killed pretty quickly.

Question: What is the best car in GTA IV?

Answer: If you are looking for the fastest car in the game, it would be the Bullet GT. However, if you are looking for an overall practical and fast four-door, the best option is the Sultan, the Schafter II, or the Super Diamond.

Question: How many weapons are in GTA IV?

Answer: The weapons inventory in GTA IV features 16 guns. The Carbine Rifle is the most reliable and best overall weapon for close and long-distance combat.
