Ballad of Gay Tony will focus on high-end night life unlike with IV and Lost and Damned. You'll play as Luis Lopez, full-time assistant to Tony Prince (Gay Tony).

Players will struggle with the competing loyalties of family and friends, and with the uncertainty about who is real and who is fake in a world in which everyone has a price

In Grand Theft Auto IV, Luis appears three times though out the story. The first time being on the Mission "Three Leaf Clover", then "Museum Piece" and finally "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend".

Luis also appears in a couple of times in Lost and Damned. The first mission being "Diamonds in the Rough" the other being "Collector's Item".

Weapons

A true high-velocity handgun, for quick and accurate kills.

weapons_explosiveshotgun.png Explosive Shotgun

The low recoil automatic shotgun blends the power of a full shotgun shell with rapid fire to take down multiple targets easily. Explosive shells turn this already powerful weapon into a gun that shreds vehicles in their tracks.

Light, compact and accurate, this machine gun is perfect for urban combat.

weapons_goldsmg.png Gold SMG

For the man who has everything.

weapons_advancedmg.png Advanced MG

More helpful info:

If you're using the DLC version, Niko & Johnny's (If you played TLAD) parking spaces work.

The homie w' the weapons truck can sell you Johnny's grenade launcher.

All your favorite weapon spawns from GTA4 are still there.

Also if you missed the marker in Luis' apartment, he can change outfits. You still can't buy them or

change individual pieces but you have a few options this time. You can also visit the internet cafes

& laundromats for some quick cash in the beginning of the game.

If you start missions at Luis' mom's place you'll quickly open up the drug wars, they pay pretty good.

I updated the topic a little. I put in the other info you posted and added the rewards for doing Drug Wars.

Next thing I'm going to finish is the targets you need to get for 100% in each mission. I just having a little trouble with the tables and color tags and etc... seem to break after using them to much in one post...

As far as I know, the IRL names for some of the weapons are the following:

.44 - Automag

Advanced MG - M249

Explosive Shotgun - AA-12

Assault SMG: FN P90

If anyone can tell us about the others, let me know.

I found a way how to get rich in TBoGT on the first day I bought the CD. Here is what you do:

- Complete the mission "Mama's Boy"

- Go to LC Cage fight on your map.

- Go down stars and bet all of your money on the person you think will win.

- If the person you betted on wins you will get DOUBLE on what you betted on. Keep doing this and you will be a millionare in less than a half hour.

Oh and you must also put the game on Auto Save Off for obvious reasons. I have about 1,000,000 from cage fights.

If your good at fighting, that's a good idea to make some cash at the start.

One more thing, if your doing a cage match and your low on Health, Spectate the next round to gain full health again. When you compete again, you'll start where you left off.
