Trial By Fire is a mission in Grand Theft Auto III given to protagonist Claude by Diablos leader El Burro from a payphone in the Hepburn Heights area of Portland Island, Liberty City.


Claude answers a payphone in Hepburn Heights. El Burro tells Claude that the Triads had stolen a car of Burro's with some of his memorabillia. They then wrecked and burned the car, so El Burro instructs Claude to avenge his Diablo Stallion by killing 25 Triads with a flamethrower. Claude then heads for Chinatown, where El Burro had placed a flamethrower. Claude sets fire to twenty-five Triads and completes the task.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Go to Chinatown and pick up the flamethrower
  • Burn 25 Triads


The reward for completing the mission is $10,000. The player can get a $5000 bonus by taking out the Triad group at the basketball courts in Little China Park. The mission Big'n'Veiny is unlocked. Also, after completion of the mission, the Triads will become violent towards Claude, even if the player has not completed the mission The Pick-Up from Toni Cipriani.
