You may be looking for the mission with the same name in GTA IV.
Kenny: "I've run this territory for years. And now some impudent street gang thinks they can just take it away from me? Make them pay for their arrogance, Huang... and avenge Ling!"
Huang: "Said with true feeling, Uncle!"
Kenny Lee gives orders for his nephew Huang Lee

Payback is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, given to protagonist Huang Lee by his uncle and Lee Family head Wu "Kenny" Lee from his restaurant in the Cerveza Heights district of Dukes, Liberty City.


Huang is grieving over Ling Shan's death while Kenny complains that the street gang from the previous mission needs to be taken care of so that they can't take over Kenny's territory. Kenny sends Huang to Steinway. As Huang arrives, a gang member asks what's he doing here. Huang wants blood. The gang member escapes and runs to his two friends nearby. Don't waste bullets trying to kill the goon running away, he is invincible in this time. Huang kills all of them as their backup arrives. The last surviving member attempts to escape in a car but Huang eventually catches up to him and kills him. If you can get some other better weapons such as shotguns from the police cars, that will definitely make the mission easier. You can blow up the car as soon as he gets in, three to five solid shots will make the last survivor bail, switch to your pistol and send him your regards.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Go to the gang's hangout
  • Chase the gang member back to his friends
  • Take out all the gang members
  • Don't let the gang leader escape


The reward for completing the mission is $50. Completing the mission unlocks the mission The Wheelman.

Mission Replay description

"Ling's death kinda hit me harder than my dad's - understandable - I didn't want to fuck my dad.

Anyway, Uncle Kenny got my head together and I got payback on the gang that hit his turf ... and Ling.

I hope she sleeps easy now. Which is more than I can say for me - I've gotta get laid."


  • Huang's line "No one fucks with my family!" is said several times by Niko Bellic, notably during Uncle Vlad and Hostile Negotiation.
  • The same line causes some confusion in this mission. Though Kenny sent Huang to do this task, he went mostly because of payback (hence the name of the mission) for Ling, not really to help Kenny. So when he says "No one fucks with my family!" while avenging Ling, it is a little confusing since she is not part of his family.
