"My eagerly talking friend at FIB has an illegal wiretap that's been compromised. If we fix it for him, he'll give us the name of their rat."
Wade Heston

Scrambled is a mission given to Huang Lee by Wade Heston in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars.


Wade tells Huang that his FIB contact has an illegal wiretap that is being jammed, he needs Huang to destroy three Scramblers in order to un-jam the signal, in return, the contact will give the name of the FIB rat.


To locate the Scramblers, pay attention to the signal on the map, the closer the player gets to the Scramblers, the more interference his map will suffer, remember that there are several IAD personnel guarding the Scramblers and conducting the operation.

The first Scrambler is a parked Gumshoe in a back alleyway, guarded by enemies weilding Pistols, the best weapon to use here is an Assault rifle like the AK-47 or Carbine Rifle, to kill the enemies and destroy the Scrambler faster. The second Scrambler is a stationary wiretap, located on a RON Gas Station Roof. This time the enemies are weilding MP5s, try to use a grenade to destroy the Scrambler without getting too close. The third Scrambler is in a Gumshoe on the move. These enemies are also armed with MP5s and they will shoot if the player gets too close to the Gumshoe. Try to destroy it by doing a drive-by from a safe distance or get out of the vehicle and use an assault rifle to destroy the Gumshoe before he runs away. Once the final Scrambler have been destroyed the mission is complete.
