Big Smoke

Nines and AKs is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas given to protagonist Carl Johnson by Grove Street Families leader and brother Sweet from his home in the Grove Street cul-de-sac in Ganton.


Sweet, Ryder, and Big Smoke are playing a game of dominoes as Carl arrives. Carl inquires what kind of weapons the gang has presently. Ryder replies negatively, with Carl leading to think about Emmet, a member of the Seville Boulevard Families. Smoke decides to accompany him to Emmet's.

The two hop in Smoke's car, as they make their way to Emmet's place in Willowfield. Emmet doesn't recognize them at first, but after a brief talk they introduce each other. Emmet offers his assistance to them as they go target shooting for practice. Big Smoke demonstrates how to shoot things, as Carl follows his every move. Besides shooting glass bottles, Carl also shoots the gas tank of a vehicle. Emmet hails Carl's shooting skills and tells him to drop by whenever he needs a gun. Carl and Big Smoke drive back to Smoke's house in Idlewood afterward.

After a moment, Carl receives a call from Sweet and is told to check out the Binco clothing store nearby the gym in Ganton and change to a pair of green colored clothes to represent Grove Street. Carl heads there, purchases his new clothes, and exits.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Go with Smoke to Emmet's house.
  • Shoot the bottle.
  • Shoot the bottles.
  • Try shooting the bottles while crouching.
  • Use manual aim to shoot the car's gas tank.
  • Drive Smoke home.
  • Get over to Binco and get yourself some Grove Street colors.
  • Go inside the Binco clothes shop.
  • Walk into the marker to try on some new threads.
  • Buy some new clothes.
  • Leave the store.


The reward for this mission is an increase in respect. The mission Drive-By is unlocked. A pistol now always spawns at Emmet's (the location is noted a similar symbol to the one used to denote Ammu-Nation stores); this is the only weapon made available by Emmet and will be quickly superseded as the player discovers other weapon spawn locations and unlocks the Johnson House weapons cache. In addition, Carl can use the Binco, ProLaps, and Sub Urban clothing stores.


Camera pans out of the table in Sweet's House which is covered in dominoes. In the room is Sweet Johnson, Big Smoke and Ryder.
Big Smoke Give me 15 motherfucker!
Ryder I'll write it down in a second! I ain't gonna hassle with the play sucka, let me play first!
CJ Ey, wassup? Who winning?
Big Smoke Wassup man? Who you think? Me!
Ryder That does it! That's game null and void motherfuckers!
CJ So, what guns we working with now?
Ryder Some guys did a raid on the spot, we ain't got shit now!
CJ What'chu gonna do if the Ballas roll on through here? Throw shoes at them? Say, what happened to Emmet?
Sweet Emmet? Haha, shit, gangsters these days got mags, AKs and all kinds of stuff. Emmet on the other hand ain't got shit.
CJ Well, until we get the plug, we gotta deal with the cat that always been there for us.
Big Smoke Emmets part of Boulevard Families, we ain't too close these days, but nonetheless, I'll take you to see them. Get ourselves stacked up, come on man.
Ryder Nigga, shake them up again.
Big Smoke and CJ leave Sweet's house, get into Big Smoke's Glendale and head to Emmet's.
CJ What happened to the families? Where the love at?
Big Smoke Shit happened. Grove robs Temple, Temple robs Grove, bad blood leads to bad blood. If you read the book, that's the way the world works brother.
CJ Yeah, but you gotta keep real with it.
Big Smoke I admire you Carl, you elite, a visionary, you remember me when you get to the top.
CJ and Big Smoke arrive at Emmet's.
Big Smoke That's my man right there, you know what I'm saying?
Emmet (Shoots bullet accidently) Hey? Who shot at me? What you kids want?
CJ Hey, hey, hey, pops, calm down. Hey, what's happening?
Emmet Ain't you Beverley Johnson's boy?
CJ Yeah, that's right.
Emmet Say, ain't you dead?
CJ Nah, Emmet, the other one, Carl.
Emmet Sorry about Beverly.
Big Smoke That's why we're here sir. We wanna get the people who did it.
Emmet Well, you come to the right place. Try anything you like boy.
Big Smoke Man, look at this old shit.
CJ and Big Smoke take part in a shooting range activity in which they have to shoot glass bottles. After that, CJ shoots the gas tank of a car, causing it to explode. They then return to Big Smoke's Home.
Big Smoke Thanks CJ, I'll see you around.
CJ Later, Smoke.
Sweet (Phone rings} I thought you was representing? Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought you was rolling with Grove Street again?
CJ I already told you I am.
Sweet Well I ain't seen any colors yet. You gotta fly the flag man. Ain't nobody gonna respect you if you don't look like the hood.
CJ Alright man, my bad, I just ain't got around to it yet.
Sweet There's a Binco around the corner in Ganton.
CJ visits the Binco in Ganton and buys some green clothes. Once he exits Binco the mission ends.

Indestructible Tampa

You can get a fully indestructible Tampa in this mission. You need a Forklift in your garage for this. When Big Smoke and Emmet ask you to shoot bottles, take Smoke's Glendale and place it in Ganton garage. The Glendale must stand along the rear garage wall and there must be some space between the car and the wall. Now push Tampa from Emmet's place to your garage and place it just like the Smoke's car. Try to roll over the Tampa with the Forklift. It can take some time. When the Tampa is upside down, get out from your Forklift and hide between Smoke's car and the rear wall. You must survive two explosions. If the explosions don't kill you, let the garage door close. The garage will then fix the car.

  • During the first cutscene, the song playing in Sweet's house is Dr Dre & Snoop Dogg - Fuck Wit Dre Day; this song can also be heard on Radio Los Santos.
  • Emmet fired a Desert Eagle, but it gives off the 9mm pistol sound.
  • In the PC version of the game, even if the controls are set to "Mouse + Keys" (standard controls configuration), which doesn't have an auto-aim feature, the instructions given to shoot the bottles still displays controls only used for auto-aiming.
  • After receiving the phone call from Sweet, instructing CJ to go to Binco and purchase something, there is no real need to buy anything. Just walking in and out of the changing room and then outside the shop again will complete the mission.
  • In the cutscene where CJ and Big Smoke meet Emmet, Emmet is seen wearing a red shirt under his green jacket, but in gameplay his shirt is white.
  • When Emmet fires his Desert Eagle, it uses a more realistic special shooting effect. The effect is later shown again in the mission "The End of the Line."
  • Despite the mission's name "Nines and AKs", there are no AK-47s used or even seen in the mission, although it is mentioned by Sweet .
  • If you punch Emmet he will try to fight you.
  • Smoke says that CJ should remember him when he got to the top. This proves to be true for both party as CJ keeps remembering Smoke after all his progress whilst Smoke seems to knows that CJ will come and stop him. Another hint is that during End of The Line, Smoke mentions that CJ got the whole world which possibly means that Smoke keeps tab on CJ and knows that CJ has become more powerful, even after Smoke himself become drug lord on Lost Santos.
