San Andreas Gang Guide

Gang members are recognised by their clothing. Each gang has its own territory, indicated by street warnings, wall graffiti, or simply violence. In Los Santos, each of the 4 gangs are split up into different 'sets'. This is good and bad news. Bad, because not all sets get along, and good, because there's always plenty of backup available.

Gang Wars & Territory

Winning territory involves gang war, and this must be done carefully. Enter the area you wish to control, and kill every opposition member in sight. Killing 3 rival gang members on foot will provoke a gang war, and the area under attack will flash red on the radar. The rivial gang attack in 3 waves to defend their land. Keep a close eye on the radar, and watch where the attackers are coming from. They may attack unexpectantly or in large numbers and also may attack from a car, Survive the 3 waves, and the area is yours. That area is now highlighted green on the map. Other gangs may try and take your territory, and it's up to you to defend it.

Recruitment

You can recruit some gang members by pressing Up on the D-pad whilst targeting a member. CJ can recruit a maximum of 7 members at any given time. The maximum number of recruits depends on CJ's respect level.

A coach or bus will hold all 7 members, where as a typical car will carry a maximum of 2 or 4. Press Up on the D-pad and your gang members will follow you. Press Down on the D-Pad, and they will stay put until told to do otherwise.

GANG MEMBERS AND RESPECT SYSTEM

1% (Respect) = 2 Gang members

10% (Respect) = 3 Gang members

20% (Respect) = 4 Gang members

40% (Respect) = 5 Gang members

60% (Respect) = 6 Gang members

80% (Respect) = 7 Gang members

Grove Street Families

The Grove Street Families have been silenced over the past few years by drugs, internal disagreements and their arch rivals, the Ballas. The Seville Boulevard Families (controlling only a small area in south-east Los Santos) and the Temple Drive Families (located up north) have split from the Grove, so just because they're wearing green doesn't mean they are allies. Whilst these events took place, Vagos and Ballas took over. Everyday, Grove Street gets weaker, and the Ballas get stronger. Grove Street OG's include Sweet (Sean Johnson), Big Smoke (Melvin Harris), Ryder (Lance Wilson) and CJ (Carl Johnson). The families must re-unite if they are ever to rise again. The Grove Street Families control areas of Ganton and East Los Santos.

The Ballas

The Ballas are the arch rivals of the Grove Street Families. The Ballas come in two sets - Front Yard Ballas and Rollin Heights Ballas. The Front Yard Ballas are Los Santos' most nutorious drug dealers, and Grove Street's biggest rivals. The Rollin Height Ballas act as backup and control only the tiny area of Glen Park, although they are said to be expanding south, into Idlewood. The Ballas are battling with rivals (Vagos & the Grove Street Families) to control East Los Santos. The Ballas have been around since the 1970's - Involved in drug dealing, gang banging, prostitution, arms dealing, vandalism, degeneracy, but mainly, the cocaine trade. Mindless, uncontrollable, and thought to have ties with Mexican (Drugs), and Russian (Weapons) Mobs.

Varios Los Aztecas

A latin street gang in Little Mexico, distinctly recognised by their turquoise outfits. They have a major rivalry with the Los Santos Vagos. Heavily involved in gun running and street violence, but slowly diminishing. The Varios Los Aztecas are traditionally anti-narcotics. Gang veterans include Cesar Vialpando, Sunny, Gal and Hazer.Thye are extremly dangerous.

Los Santos Vagos

The Vagos sport yellow outfits, and occupy a majority of North and East Los Santos, namely Las Colinas and Los Flores. This hispanic gang are sworn enemies of the Varios Los Aztecas, and attack in large numbers. Heavily involved in drug trade. The Vagos have a major involvment in Big Smoke's crack business.

San Fierro Rifa

This hispanic street gang control areas of Garcia, San Fierro. They are believed to have become a major hub in the international drugs trade - possible involvment in the cocaine trade. They have a dislike towards mexican gangs in Los Santos. T-Bone Mendez is involved with the Rifa.

Triads

A San Fierro based gang helped along by Wu Zi Mu, a blind gentlemen, and led by Ran Fa Li. The Triads operate the Four Dragons Casino in Las Venturas, but their main place of work is Chinatown. There are two sets of Triads-the Mountain Cloud Boys, operated by Woozie, and the Red Gecko Tong, led by Ran Fa Li. The Triads are currently having problems with a vietnamese street gang known as Da Nang Boys.

Da Nang Boys

The Da Nang Boys are a vietnamese street gang based in San Fierro, preparing a full move to the United States. They control the dockland/bay area in Easter Basin - often causing disturbance. Currently at war with local Triad gangs. Extremely violent, major interests in protection.

The Mafia

3 Liberty City based mob families operate in Venturas, and each of them have a stake in Caligula's Casino. The Sindacco Family want to do business with the Leone's, and this involves Salvatore pledging 5 million dollars to the Sindaccos. Both gangs argue over who should run the casino, and so Ken Rosenberg (once working with the Forelli's down in Vice City) is put forward as a neutral party. Ken is in the middle of the 3 mob families, so if one attacks the other, Ken will most likely be the target. The Sindaccos are represented by Johnny, and the Forelli's continue causing trouble for the Leone's. The Triads have opened a new casino at the opposite end of The Strip, which will likely feature as competition for Caligula's.

That's all from the official guide. No other GTA sites even have this and StrategyWiki has been linking us for years :P

Thanks K9 Krew. I have now put this content up on our San Andreas gangs page, it's minus the images at the moment. BTW, I had to fix a LOT of spelling errors before it was acceptable (and also capitalising gang/country names)... so you may wanna fix them in your topic too ;)

Thanks though. Rep point earned here.

alright the Ballas part is wrong the Rollin Heights ballas control Jefferson, Front Yard Ballas control Idlwood and possibly Willow Field, Kilo Tray Ballas control Glen Park, and The Temple Drive Ballas are fighting the Temple Drive Families for Temple, I dont know what set controls Verona Beach.

The Varrios Los Aztecas are lead by Cesar Vialpando and they are mostly based in El Corona

Temple Drive Families Control TEMPLE

Seville Blvd control PLAYA DEL SEVILLE

San Fierro Rifa's Main Territory is Battery Point and the leader is T-Bone Mendez

No. I got all this information from about 5 websites and i have passed the game about 4 times. So your wrong about the Ballas and regarding the Temple families and Seville blvd, i said exactly that, just in the form of The Seville Boulevard Families (controlling only a small area in south-east Los Santos) and the Temple Drive Families (located up north) have split from the Grove.

And again. NO. San Fierro Rifa's main territory is Garcia.

OFF TOPIC (but related)

I just started a fresh game of SA & was fed up e/ the "strategy guide" & it's lousy pics of the Los Santos spray tags. Short

version is that I have pics of ALL 100 tags & a listing of a much more efficient order to get them. The folder is 134 meg (not

zipped). Pics either have a brief remark or show prominent landmarks. They are meant to be used w/ the map in the book

but I think they will work w/out it. They all show XZY co-ords from co-ord mod.

Would you be interested in it for the guide?

According to a tag on the corner of the building east of the chilidog vendor, Verona Beach is Rollin Heights Ballas.

Here's my guide pic of the tag -
