Robbing Uncle Sam is the last mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas given to protagonist Carl Johnson by fellow Grove Street Families member Ryder from his house.

Mission Edit

Carl goes to see Ryder in his backyard, who is smoking. He asks Carl why he, himself, didn't finish high school. After Carl asks if it was because he dealt drugs since the age of ten, or if it was because he attacked a teacher for wearing Ballas colors, Ryder responds that it's because he is too intelligent. After asking Carl where they can attain guns, Ryder informs him that the army has all of the guns.

Carl and Ryder get inside of a Mule (delivered by LB), and drive to the National Guard Depot at the Ocean Docks. Once they arrive, they notice that the gate is closed. Carl climbs over the wall and shoots the switch to open the gate. Ryder drives the Mule to a weapon's warehouse, where Carl shoots the switch to open the door. Ryder stands guard as Carl collects six crates of weaponry around the warehouse using a Forklift. Once all six have been collected, Carl and Ryder escape the National Guard, who pursue them in Patriots, by throwing weapons crates at them. They then drive back to LB's lockup in Willowfield.

Mission objectivesEdit

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Get in the van with Ryder.
  • Drive down to the compound at Ocean Docks.
  • Open the front gate by shooting the switch on the other side of the wall.
  • Shoot the switch to open the front gate.
  • Open the warehouse door by shooting the switch on the far side of the wall.
  • Shoot the switch to open the warehouse door.
  • Get in the forklift truck.
  • Load the crates onto the van.
  • Get in the van.
  • Head to the lock up in Willowfield.

Reward Edit

The reward for completing this mission is increased respect, and the Grove Street families will start to carry Tec-9.

Tips and TricksEdit

  • An easier but slightly lengthy method is to get the crates into a more favorable line-up before opening the first gate for Ryder. Collecting all the crates to the warehouse doorway allows you to load them into the truck more quickly once you let it through.
  • While lifting the crates into the Mule, don't forget to protect Ryder. The crates can wait.
  • Avoid throwing a crate while a Patriot or other vehicle is right behind the truck; Ryder may get caught in the explosion, killing him.
  • You can destroy any excess crates. Each crate has a different item inside them, ranging from a simple pistol to a health pickup to an armor vest.
  • It is possible to carry two crates at the same time with the forklift. However, you have to aim the crate into the van one by one to be released. Combined with the tip of lining up the crates before opening the gates, putting everything in the van will be rather quick and with less time to deal with the spawning soldiers hitting at Ryder.
