Billy Grey

It's War is a mission in The Lost and Damned. It is given by Billy Grey to Johnny Klebitz.


This opening cutscene shows Billy Grey talking to Dave Grossman, a member who is also a lawyer for Goldberg, Ligner and Shyster. Billy casually offers Dave a bong spiked with mescaline, causing Grossman to get intoxicated, with Billy remarking that he "could be trippin' for days". Johnny enters and has to talk to Billy, ordering Dave away so he can speak privately with Billy. While conversing about the club's business and their relationship, Billy receives a text message informing him that some members of The Lost were attacked by AOD members.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Go with Billy
  • Take out the Angels of Death
  • Get on your bike
  • Go with Billy
  • Take out the Angels of Death
  • Get on your bike



Drive out to the scene in Alderney and find a plethora of AOD members in the area. Since this can be a mostly long range fight, you should call Jim Fitzgerald before the mission to have him leave a fully loaded Micro-SMG on the second floor of the Lost MC Clubhouse. After eliminating all of them, you're ordered back onto your bike. Follow Billy Grey to another location, where a larger concentration of AOD members are holed up. Some of them have taken to the higher ground, on the catwalks, so watch out for them. Make good use of the multitude of explosive barrels and gas tanks to kill larges amounts of enemies at once. Move forward with the members, clearing out AODs in the abandoned building to the left, until you reach the back, where some Gang Burritos will arrive. Kill the AODs coming out of them.

After eliminating the large amount of enemies at this abandoned site, you're again ordered back to your bike, where a cutscene occurs. Billy informs the Lost members that Jason Michaels has been killed by an Eastern European in Broker. Billy gives a brief speech commending Jason's character, before everyone downs a beer in Jason's memory and smashes the empty bottles on the ground. Billy vows revenge and talks briefly of loyalty and leadership, mostly looking in Johnny's direction during this discussion. Once his speech concludes, so does the mission.


Liberty Tree Newspaper

"A gas, leather, and crystal meth-fueled war is raging on the streets of Liberty City. It isn't nations fighting but rival motorcycle gangs battling for control of the streets. Men have died in this war, like The Lost biker Jason Michaels who was killed in Broker recently. How long is it going to be before innocent civilians are killed as well? Mainly thanks to the Angels of Death and their public relations efforts, biker gangs have taken on a much more friendly image in recent years. They appear in family-friendly movies and are romanticized in video games and TV shows. They are thought to stand for a noble rebellion against the norms of society. Be warned, this image is just a smokescreen used to cover up their real criminal agenda - sleeping with your wife and selling meth to your kids."

  • Lost MC members can be killed, but if either Billy or Brian gets killed, the player will fail the mission.
  • Since Jason is killed so early in the story, this would mean TLAD starts after Niko Bellic kills Vladimir Glebov and begins working for Mikhail Faustin.
  • If Johnny abandons his bike, Billy will give him a ride back to the clubhouse, and he will fail the mission.
  • It is possible to save the bikers engaged in the shootout with or without your gang. It is harder with your gang, due to them being under heavy fire from AoD members, and having health like a normal pedestrian. The player needs heavy weapons like the M4/AK-47 to kill the AoD members fast enough to make sure that they can't escape to their bikes and drive off. The easier way is to ride ahead of your gang at the start of the mission and save Lost members who are under attack by AoD.
  • News reports of the GTA IV mission "Roman's Sorrow" will appear on the internet after this mission. This is to move the story along faster as TLMC moves to Bohan after It's War, bringing it in line with Niko's story.
  • After the mission is complete, if the player follows the Lost on their bikes, they will disappear once they turn a corner.
  • Sometimes, when Billy shouts an order to the brothers, Johnny may sarcastically mutter "Yes Sir" under his breath.
  • If you destroy either Billy's or Brian's bike, they will ride back to the clubhouse on the back of your bike and the mission will fail.
  • In the game dialogue (mostly on a second attempt after the mission has failed once) Johnny will say to Brian "man the deadbeats seem real annoyed, if I were you I'd be real scared they'd attack me on the streets" but Brian replies by saying "they won't fuck with me when I'm with Bill, no one fucks with Bill".
  • This mission features one of the rare appearances of the Gang Burrito in The Lost and Damned.
  • When going to the next place to kill the AoD, a man will follow Johnny until all the AoD are killed.
  • This mission is similar to the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas mission Grove 4 Life as Carl and Johnny both have to kill their rival gangs (the Ballas and the Angels of Death respectively) in two different areas (although Carl can take over all four areas of his war zone optionally).
  • Some of the Gang Burritos in this mission are locked.
  • When the cops arrive in response to the first shootout, you won't receive a wanted level, in fact, the cops will drive away shortly after their arrival.
  • If you choose to save the Lost MC members, then you can take on the Angels of Death members by yourself (without much dialogue).
