Ray Machowski

Arms Shortage is a mission in Grand Theft Auto III given by LCPD police officer Ray Machowski to protagonist Claude from the toilet block in Belleville Park, Staunton Island, Liberty City.

MissionEdit

Claude goes to see Ray in the toilet block in Belleville Park. Ray informs him of an old friend, Phil Cassidy, being in trouble with the Colombian Cartel and needs someone to back him up. Claude drives to Phil's Base in Rockford. Phil says the Colombians will arrive any minute and Claude then picks up everything he needs for surviving the shoot-out. The Colombians after a while arrive in Cartel Cruisers and the gunfight begins. Phil and Claude manage to clear out the wave of Colombians and Phil tells Claude that he can come back any time to get upgraded military weapons.

Mission objectivesEdit

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Drive to Phil's Base
  • Clear out the attacking Columbians
  • Go and check on Phil

RewardEdit

Upon completing this mission the player gets $10,000 and the mission Evidence Dash is unlocked. The player is also granted access to purchase military-grade weapons from Phil's Army Surplus, like the Shotgun, the M16 and the Rocket Launcher.

After the player is done talking to Phil, the player should see a Barracks OL parked there which is Bulletproof, and may come in handy for future missions. Also take note that it will only be bulletproof during and after the mission, otherwise the Barracks OL isn't bulletproof.

Trivia Edit

  • Sciatica is an actual medical condition, which involves symptoms of severe pain and possibly numbness of the leg because of compression of nerve roots in the buttocks. It's worth noting that he is sitting down at the time, on the toilet. It would not usually cause someone to cough, however, which supports the inference that Ray is pretending to be sick so he won't be shot at.
  • Phil Cassidy also lied about why he is missing his arm, stating he was in Nicaragua, though this is very likely due to the fact that he was drunk and hallucinating that he was in Nicaragua.
  • The Colombian Cartel also carry weapons that aren't normally in their arsenal, these weapons include: Molotov Cocktails, Grenades, and the Pump Action Shotgun.
  • The mission's name might be a pun on Phil's missing arm, since this is the first time Claude encounters Phil and he explains why he lost it.
  • If the player tends off all the Columbian Cartel using tank cannons, a mysterious shotgun shot will be heard and Phil will die.
