An armor is highly recommended for this mission. If you do not have one, you will find it lying in front of you after the cutscene.

After completing The Master and the Molotov, call Dimitri after 3-6 hours of in-game time, or he will call you by then. After the call ends, the mission will start. Take a car and drive to the warehouse; Niko will call Jacob for backup in the meantime.

After you go to the warehouse, the cutscene will trigger. Then, after the cutscene, you will take cover, and you will have to eliminate all the goons. Take your time and be in cover as long as possible. The enemies can shoot your wrist when you’re shooting which also depletes health. Try to stay near Jacob as he will kill enemies faster when you’re near him.

There are many enemies in this mission, but you need to kill around 8-12 of them to trigger the next objective. You will see Dimitri running away along with Bulgarin.

Dimitri calls the police during the shootout, so you will have to escape the warehouse and the police.

This is the tricky part of the mission; many things can happen. Jacob can be killed by the police, you can be Wasted since you had already taken some damage from the shootout, or you can get Busted since the police can arrest you if you don’t pick up Jacob quickly enough.

Remember, don’t shoot the police. By default, the mission gives you a two-star wanted level, but killing even one cop will increase it to three stars — which is very difficult to escape in this game and especially in this mission since the car is very slow and easy to get wrecked. Jacob will shoot while in the car, but it won’t increase the wanted level.

Jacob is bugged in this mission, so you have to kill the goon on the terrace for him to move. Make sure he comes with you outside the warehouse, or else you have to go back to pick him up, and the police will arrest you this time.

After picking him up, you will have to lose the wanted level and drive to the cafe to complete the mission. Then, you will get a call from Roman, which will immediately begin Roman’s Sorrow. So if you don’t want to start this mission, don’t pick up the phone; go to the safehouse, and save the game.
