Decoy' is a mission in Grand Theft Auto III given to protagonist Claude by media tycoon and businessman Donald Love from the Love Media building at the Bedford Point district of Staunton Island, Liberty City.
Claude drops by Love Media, looking for more work. Donald tells that SWAT and the police are guarding the Old Oriental Gentleman's location in Pike Creek, Shoreside Vale. Donald wants Claude to get in the van used by the Oriental Gentleman and act as a decoy to the police, in order to let the Oriental Gentleman escape.
Claude gets over to the location. He then gets inside the van, and gets a six-star wanted level. He drives the van away from the warehouse, making the police chase him, with the Oriental Gentleman then having the opportunity to escape.
In order to complete the mission the player must:
- Get over to Pike Creek and get in the decoy van
- Now lead the cops away from the warehouse
