Gay Tony

Frosting on the Cake is a mission in The Ballad of Gay Tony. It is given by Gay Tony to Luis Lopez. It is played through Johnny Klebitz's point of view in Diamonds in the Rough.

Description

The mission starts showing Gracie, Sharon, Evan and Rocco having a coke hit at Tony's apartment. Luis walks in looking for Tony, who called him in earlier. After having an exchange with Rocco, Luis finds Tony passed out on the floor. After waking him up with a brisk dunk in the bathroom sink, Tony tells Luis that they're going to purchase some 2 million dollars worth of diamonds off a smuggler in Broker. As they leave, Evan decides he wants to go as well.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Go to the docks
  • Use sticky bombs to take out the bikers
  • Lose the cops
  • Drive Tony back to the club

100% Objectives

Have less than 50% damage.
Amount of accuracy of the stick bombs.
Lose the wanted level in 0:35

Walkthrough

Drive the Stretch E with Evan to the docks where the Platypus is in Broker, where The Cook is waiting. Listen to Evan whine, but try not to damage the limo too much. Once you arrive, a cutscene will start showing the deal going down. At first everything is fine, but soon Johnny Klebitz and the Broker Chapter of the Lost biker gang show up to crash the deal. Luis and Tony will dive into one limo, and Evan with the diamonds jump into another. Now, instead of driving, you'll be riding shotgun, with the camera facing behind the car and given Sticky Bombs in order to hold off of the chasing bikers and vans. Try to aim for their front tires, and destroy the roadblocks as soon as you get to them. Once you're near the Algonquin Bridge an APC will show up, along with a NOOSE Annihilator. Throw as many Sticky Bombs as you can until the APC explodes, and 2 or 3 to drop the chopper. At the end of the bridge, your driver is shot and you must lose the heat, regaining control of the limo. Lose the heat, and go to Hercules to end the mission. The mission ends when Tony tells you that Evan was killed, apparently while bleeting online about his impending doom at the hands of Johnny Klebitz, and the diamonds are lost.

Trivia

APC-MG-GTAIV

The APC featured in the mission

  • This is the only time a Stretch E can be obtained. However, when driving it to the safehouse, they will also appear in traffic.
  • This is the only mission where NOOSE actually utilizes the APC.
    • This APC is different than normal APCs. It has, notably, a minigun turret instead of an explosive turret.
  • If the Stretch E is destroyed or Evan is killed before the deal, the mission will fail.
  • In TLAD, Johnny only had a few bikers with him, but in TBoGT, he is accompanied by a small army of bikers.
  • When the Stretch E is driving off from where the deal was busted, you can see several Lost members and bodyguards fighting.
  • This mission, along with Diamonds in the Rough, are the only crossover missions in the GTA IV saga to not involve Niko Bellic.
  • This is the only mission in which the Slamvan appears in TBoGT.
  • This mission is somewhat similar to the GTA SA mission Reuniting The Families; both missions require the player to fend off pursuers from a car using a weapon, including motorcyclists and a helicopter. Some differences are that CJ uses an AK-47, and had to keep the car from being destroyed, with only police as enemies, while Luis uses Sticky Bombs, and fends off both police and Lost MC bikers.
  • During the cutscene where Costas is killed, a police officer is seen shooting at the limo; sometimes he will not fire, although Costas is still killed.
  • The Stretch E is immune to the sticky bombs damage, possibly because some bikers may drive too close to the car and if that happened, the results would be fatal.  However, there is a small window where the Stretch E is not immune to the damage. Right before the quick-time scene where Costas is killed, if you throw the bombs directly in front of the car and blow them up just before the cutscene starts, after the cutscene ends, the Stretch E will be destroyed instantly from the stickies you threw.
  • You cannot destroy the Annihilator before Tony panics about it.
  • Tony is not wearing his glasses during Diamonds in the Rough, but he wears them in this mission.
  • Although sticky bomb units decrease when used, it's purely infinite (always recharges 10 new units).
    • If 100% Completion is achieved and if the mission is replayed, the amount of bombs will be 25000, although they won't deplete.
  • For some reason, the introduction cutscene of this mission is counted by the game already as the time taken to complete the mission, adding about 2 minutes to the final score. In order to get 100%, the player must skip the cutscene to the point where Tony instructs the player outside his apartment to drive the Limo with Evan.
  • It's possible to take the APC used in the mission as long you don't destroy it and let it survive and also skip the cutscene right away where Costas is about to get killed.
  • Johnny has Vice President patch in this mission despite him being the President after "This Shit's Cursed".
