In Yusuf's apartment, Yusuf will be on the phone with a business associate.

Undeterred, Yusuf needs Luis to come along with him to somehow legitimize it. Yusuf and Luis head outside and drive to Rotterdam Tower for a meeting. Upon arriving, Yusuf asks Luis to go up and scope things out. Luis then arrives at the observation decks and sees Tahir Saeed and Ahmed Khalil. Both act suspiciously and repeatedly question where Yusuf is. Suspecting something's up, Luis threatens Tahir to let him what's going on. When he refuses to talk, but hints that Luis just walked into a bad situation, Luis throws him off of the building. Tahir lands on a taxi, badly damaging it, and dies, while Ahmed flees. NOOSE agents start closing in. Then Luis starts to chase Ahmed, while shooting both officers and NOOSE Annihilators. Then Luis kills, then he takes down Annihilators, and following Ahmed upstairs until he reaches the very top. and Ahmed become cornered on the spire, who reveals that he and Tahir wanted to get Yusuf on a wire for NOOSE. He also shows the parachute he was planning to make his escape with. Luis takes the parachute and lunges at Ahmed, who steps back, falling off the spire to his death. Luis takes the parachute and escapes the building, landing in City Hall. After that, the mission is passed.

The Reward of this mission is $15000, the Mission Caught with your Pants Down and the explosive rounds for the Automatic Shotgun are unlocked.


  • Before Tahir lands on the Taxi, the taxi driver will say something like, "If I see another tourist today, I'll puke" and then after Tahir lands on the car violently he will scream out something like, "What The Fuck?!"
  • The scene where Tahir lands on the taxi could possibly be a reference to a scene in Rush Hour 2, where Ricky also fell from a high building and lands on a taxi.
  • On rare occasions, Tahir will miss the taxi when he falls to his death, though the taxi driver still reacts to Tahir falling in front of him.
  • Sometimes, two Annihilators will crash into each other, destroying both helicopters. The Annihilators may also crash into the tower.
  • This is one of two missions that a vehicle is destroyed by someones body, (the other is Deconstruction for Beginners in GTA IV, where a lookout falls into a Cavalcade, destroying it).
  • This is the first appearance and use of the Parachute in TBoGT.
  • If you get out of the car when you head to the tower, occasionally Yusuf will hit you with his car when he drives away.
