Flatliner is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, given to protagonist Huang Lee by club owner Zhou Ming from his club in the East Island City district of Dukes, Liberty City. This mission also serves as the tutorial for the Paramedic minigame.


Mission Brief

Zhou wants you to pick up an old friend of his called Uri from the airport, and his friend is on a medical release. But there are problems; Uri is a criminal and his ambulance is under police protection.


Once you have exited Zhou's club, take his car and quickly head to the airport before Uri is released. Once you are there, you will need to kill four police officers armed with Nightsticks. Once they are disposed of, steal the ambulance and drive back to Zhou's club. You will gain a three star wanted level upon exiting the airport. Avoid ramming things to keep Uri's heart strong. If you hit too many things then Uri will flatline. If he flatlines then you will need to continuously tap the small heart icon with the stylus (DS), tap the L and R buttons (PSP), or continously tap the heart monitor (iOS/Android) until his heart rate returns to normal. Once you have returned to Zhou's apartment, it's mission accomplished. The final cutscene shows Zhou ripping the heart of his colleague out of his chest and saying that now that he and Huang have killed a man together, they are blood brothers.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Go to Francis International Airport
  • Steal the ambulance that Uri is in
  • Take Uri back to Zhou's lock-up
  • Park the ambulance in Zhou's lock-up


The reward for this mission is $150. The mission Bomb Disposal is unlocked.

Mission Replay description

"Zhou's fucking crazy! He had me pick up an ex-colleague of his just so he could cut his heart out.

The guy's got issues!"
