==Description==
  +
Niko meets Phil at a [[Honkers|Strip Club]] in [[Port Tudor]] and Phil informs Niko that the [[Russia]]ns have smuggled drugs into the [[Liberty City (HD Universe)|city]] from [[Vice City (HD Universe)|Vice City]] via boat and they haven't unloaded them yet. Niko and Phil get into a [[Steed|truck]] and drive to the docks in [[Charge Island]]. After they arrive, two Russians are waiting and ask Niko and Phil who they are. They both get out the truck and attack the Russians. After a shootout in the Docks, Niko and Phil steal the [[Squalo|boats]] containing the drugs and sail them back to North Holland.
   
First, meet up with Phil at the Strip club in [[Port Tudor]]. After watching the cut-scene, you and Phil get into Phil's [[Intruder]]. He tells you that there is a truck under the overpass in [[Westdyke]] that's needed for the heist in plan. On the journey to there, Phil expresses his paranoia about helicopters in the sky and asks Niko if he knows the car isn't bugged (which explains the events in the next mission). Once you reach the location of the [[Steed]], get in with Phil and drive to the boatyard in Charge Island. Phil explains on the journey on what's happening, the [[Ancelotti Family|Ancelottis]] are shipping a big amount of coke into [[Liberty City in GTA IV Era|Liberty City]], and ever since two of their members ([[Tony Black]] and [[Frankie Garone]]) have been killed, they no longer use the [[Albanians]] as their muscle, instead they rely on the Russian [[Mafia]]. The plan that Phil hopes to work, [[James Pegorino]]'s orders is to tell the Russians that they're posing as the Ancelottis to pick up the coke. However, Plan A fails instantly, and the Russians begin attacking Phil and Niko. It looks like that you're going to have to shoot your way through to steal the coke!
+
==Tips==
+
*There are two [[body armor]] pickups found in this mission, one inside the boathouse on the floor to the left, and another outside on the pier to the left.
Be careful though, as the boatyard is full of Russians. Take cover every time you shoot the Russians, and make sure that Phil isn't killed, as if he is, the mission is failed. Try and kill the Russians quickly, because sometimes Phil will stand in the open and get shot to death. He can actually take a lot of bullets, but nonetheless he will die easily. After a while, Phil says to run it. Run through the boatyard (go left to pick up a health kit on a pillar) and reach the docks. Kill the goon near a boat, and get into one of the boats with the drugs.
+
*It is easy to get Bell killed because he will often charge into the open to shoot at the enemy armed only with a [[Pistol]]. So it is recommended to stick with Bell or call for Dwayne's back up.
+
*If keeping Phil alive during the shootout proves difficult, there is a glitch that can keep him safe. As soon as the Russian on the gate tells Niko he doesn't speak English, reverse the truck up onto the grass verge behind Niko. For some reason when Phil gets out of the truck he gets 'stuck' behind the passenger-side door, giving the player plenty of time to dispose of the gunmen.
Once you're out in the sea, follow Phil to the drop-off in [[Algonquin]]. However, two boats with Russians in them will attack Phil. You must shoot them to defend Phil, or else Phil is killed. Shortly later, they will give up, leaving the only thing to do is to follow Phil to the drop-off in [[North Holland]]. Disembark on the nearby dock, and leave Phil to transport the coke.
 
 
If you're having trouble keeping Phil alive in the shootout there seems to be a glitch that can keep him out of the action. As soon as the Russian on the gate tells you he doesn't speak English reverse the truck up onto the grass verge behind you. For some reason when Phil gets out of the truck he gets 'stuck' behind the passenger-side door, and although he'll call out for help, he's sitting safely out of the way letting you take your time clearing out the rest of the gunmen.
 
 
As long as you have full health and body armor the Russian's shouldn't present a major problem, even on your own. When you've taken them all out just go back and use Niko's own body to push the door shut and Phil will run through.

"I been around long enough to know that there are some things that we don't have a choice about, but there's other times where you have to look at something and make a decision for yourself. I can't follow every order I'm given."
―Niko Bellic

Catch the Wave is a mission in Grand Theft Auto IV given to protagonist Niko Bellic by Phil Bell at the Honkers Gentlemen's Club in Tudor, Alderney.

DescriptionEdit

Niko meets Phil at a Strip Club in Port Tudor and Phil informs Niko that the Russians have smuggled drugs into the city from Vice City via boat and they haven't unloaded them yet. Niko and Phil get into a truck and drive to the docks in Charge Island. After they arrive, two Russians are waiting and ask Niko and Phil who they are. They both get out the truck and attack the Russians. After a shootout in the Docks, Niko and Phil steal the boats containing the drugs and sail them back to North Holland.

TipsEdit

  • There are two body armor pickups found in this mission, one inside the boathouse on the floor to the left, and another outside on the pier to the left.
  • It is easy to get Bell killed because he will often charge into the open to shoot at the enemy armed only with a Pistol. So it is recommended to stick with Bell or call for Dwayne's back up.
  • If keeping Phil alive during the shootout proves difficult, there is a glitch that can keep him safe. As soon as the Russian on the gate tells Niko he doesn't speak English, reverse the truck up onto the grass verge behind Niko. For some reason when Phil gets out of the truck he gets 'stuck' behind the passenger-side door, giving the player plenty of time to dispose of the gunmen.

Mission objectivesEdit

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Go to the truck
  • Drive to the boatyard on Charge Island
  • Get through the boatyard with Bell
  • Go to the coke boat
  • Follow Bell to the drop-off point
  • Protect Bell from the attacking boats

TriviaEdit

  • This is the name of a TBOGT map for Team Deathmatch or Deathmatch, but is not at the same boatyard as this one. This mission occurs mostly on Charge Island, while the TBOGT map is at the Southern Algonquin docks.
  • During a conversation between Niko and Phil Bell on the ride to the docks, Phil talks about being "paranoid" and asks Niko twice if he ever saw "choppers in the sky". This is a reference to the mobster movie, Goodfellas; where Henry has a chopper following him, thinks that the cops are all over him, and thinks that his phone is tapped.
  • Phil mentions how Niko was helping the Irish cause trouble between the Ancelottis and the Albanians a while back, obviously referring to Gerry's first two missions. The dialogue remains the same even if neither mission has been completed yet.
  • While driving the truck, Niko tells Phil "I been around long enough to know that there is some things we don't have a choice about, but there's other times where you got to look at something and make a decision for yourself." This could be Niko alluding to the fact that he has had to make a choice about killing previous characters in the game.
  • This mission is notably similar to Arms Out of Harm's Way from Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. Both missions happen at the same place and both involve a boat chase. Furthermore, the pickups from the boatyard in GTA IV are exactly the same in GTA Chinatown Wars.
