"Fun? Too much fun - that's always been this family's problem. Fun. Good causes, a good laugh, some stupid dream or some stupid distraction. But never any fucking focus! Never!"
Gerald McReary

Actions Speak Louder Than Words is the first mission given to Niko Bellic by Irish Mob leader and Packie's brother Gerry McReary in Grand Theft Auto IV.


When Niko meets up with Gerry, evidently, Don Pegorino wants to cause some tension between the Ancelottis and their Albanian muscle. The first step calls for Niko to assassinate some high-ranking members. He wants him to kill high-ranking capo Ancelotti member Anthony Spoleto, also known as Tony Black.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Pick up the bomb on Inchon Ave
  • Go to the Ancelottis' car and rig it with the bomb
  • Go to the back of the Ancelottis' car and rig it with the bomb
  • Get a vehicle and move away from the rigged car
  • Follow the Ancelottis. Don't let them know you're following them
  • Get to a safe point and detonate the bomb
  • Call Gerry to detonate the bomb
  • Take out the remaining Ancelottis
  • Get out of there and lose the wanted level


First, go to an alley way on Inchon Avenue near the McReary house and collect the bomb. The Ancelottis will be meeting with the Albanians in Little Italy. Tony Black's Cognoscenti is parked off an alleyway in Feldspar Street, next to Drusilla's. Get there, plant the bomb on the back of the car, and quickly find a decent car. Tony Black and another member will exit the restaurant and drive off. Follow them back to North Holland. Don't shoot them or get too close. After they arrive, they go to an old factory. Get to a safe distance and detonate the bomb. The car explodes under the gas canisters and Tony is killed in the explosion. Some gang members will survive the explosion. When you finish them off, you get two-star wanted level. After a successful evasion, Niko calls Gerry and the mission ends.
