    Depending how far in the story you are, here are some tips.

    Playboy X

    Intro

    When you meet him, you do a mission then drive over to his house. This is the mission that gets you into ALGONQUIN (2nd island), it's one of Elizabeta Torres' missions (one straight after 'Luck of the irish' where you first meet packie i think, deffo after that one though)

    Get his nice yellow Patriot (Hummer H2)

    When you get to the 'Deconstruction for beginners' mission, you'll have to drive with playboy to the car with the weapons in, his Patriot is outside his house when you start the mission, and he will be standing there with you. Kill him. You will fail the mission but you can get in the Patriot and drive it to your bohan safehouse. Park it in the parking spot and save it like you would any other car. It will stay. Thgis is the only plain yellowy-gold one i have seen (i mean plain as in no american flag graphics on the side like some have).


    His nice apartment

    When you get to the mission 'The holland play' you will have the choice of killing playboy or dwayne. Kill playboy. Dwayne will say over the phone "i don't have any money to give you, but i do have the deeds to playboy's apartment". It is nice, it has a plasma tv, pool table (you can't use it though which is gay), punchbag, nice bed and a rooftop garden/terrace thing. And you'll get the parking sopt outside aswell to park two more cars in so bonus.

    Another bonus for dwayne is you'll get his special ability of phoning him for 'BACKUP' and he'll send a couple of his crew members in a car to you. They're always strapped with uzis and pistols so you can go and perform drive bys on innocent cops if you get bored.




    Last Mission


    I've done both, if you kill dmitri, roman lives. If you don't, roman dies, and on the last mission you go to the old casino again, dimitri's there and so is pegorino, dimitri kills pegorino and you have to chase dimitri. dimitri has a chopper and a rocket launcher and you get a speedboat (the one pegorino uses if you kill dimitri) and you chase him. When jacob comes in with the chopper you have to drive you boat right under it and pull yourself up on to it, then you chase him and dimitri lands on happiness island exactly where pegorino ends up on the other one. Just before you get out of the chopper dimitri shoots a rocket at your chopper and you sort of make a forced landing, the you chase dimtri and kill him. Whatever way you do it, you get $250,000 because if you chose the money before you get it, but if you kill dimitri before, when you kill pegorino on the last mission you get $250,000 anyway, but i'd rather have roman live at the ed, so i'd reccomend the 'REVENGE' option for anyone who hasn't done it yet, you'll get the money anyway.


    Some Secret Car locations


    Sultan RS

    This is a modified version of the sultan. It has carbon fibre bonnets etc.., wide bodykit, better rims and even a turbo with a dumpvalve. Extremely nice car.

    YOU WILL HAVE TO UNLOCK THE LAST ISLAND (ALDERNEY) FOR THIS CAR.

    People that have done the mission for whoever it was (Phil Bell i think) will remember taking a van to an old mansion up in Westdyke. Remember? If you go round the back of the garage to the side of the front of the mansion, there will be some bushes and high grass. And hidden in these plants and stuff is this car. Get in and save it in your safehouse is what i'd do.

    Tugboat (SHIP)

    Here is some ship that you can drive. There are two i think, one i know for definite and i have heard about the other one. One is just above colony island (in between Algonquin & Broker), and the other one i have heard about is in the small river that seperates the bottom of Alderney. It is red and you just climb on it and go up the stairs into the cabin and drive it. It has a foghorn that you can annoy countless cops and boaters with.

    The most important thing about choosing Dwayne is that in Playboy's apartment, the wardrobe contains the original GTA III clothes. Black top, camo pants. Proper junglist style.
