'Caught with your Pants Down' is a mission in the second downloadable content for Grand Theft Auto IV, The Ballad of Gay Tony. It is given to Luis Fernando Lopez by Yusuf Amir.


In this mission, Luis must steal a NOOSE APC carried by a Skylift chopper for Yusuf and take it back to his construction site in Castle Gardens.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Go to Star Junction
  • Get in Yusuf's chopper
  • Fly near the APC
  • Shoot the bolts on the APC to release it before it reaches the police station
  • Get to the APC
  • Take out as many cops as you can until they back down
  • Deliver the APC to the building site

100% Objectives

Complete the mission in 7:25
Take less than 50% damage
Destroy six police cars using the APC.
Take less than 50% APC damage
No more than ten shots were used to disconnect the APC.



Get to Star Junction and get in Yusuf's Swift. Fly to the Skylift holding the APC. Once you get close enough, a cutscene plays. Yusuf will take the controls, and gives you an Advanced Sniper rifle. Shoot the yellow bolts holding the APC. Take out the back two then the front right and the other one (do this within 10 shots to get the Sharpshooter requirement). When the Skylift drops the tank in the air, jump out of the Swift and Parachute down to it, wherever it has landed. You now have a four-star wanted level; get to the Algonquin side and start destroying Police Cars (getting the Cop Cars Destroyed requirement is very simple). Resist the temptation of simply shooting, then running over any cop car chasing you, as enough close range explosions will put the APC in flames, failing the mission. Once you're down to one star, escape the search radius normally and deliver the APC to Yusuf's construction site in Castle Gardens and receive your $10,000 reward.

  • The mission's title is a common saying, referring to catching an enemy at a moment of weakness, but also a reference to the opening cutscene, in which Mr. Amir catches Yusuf dressed only in his underwear.
  • Oddly, if you shoot the Skylift enough, it will spiral down without the APC attached.
  • When Yusuf lands his chopper in the intersection, four cars will crash each other. If you look at the cars closely, it can be seen that they have no drivers.
  • Yusuf can be seen at the top of the crane when you deliver the APC.
