==Walkthrough==
Playboy suspects that [[Marlon Bridges]] had been ratting on Playboy. He wants Niko to go to the basketball courts on Exeter Avenue between X and W to kill the snitch. Niko doesn't know how he looks like and Playboy tries to explain his appearance. After a while of explaining and Niko still not understanding it, Playboy gives Niko his own upgraded cell phone to take a picture so he can tell Niko which one to kill. Niko heads to the basketball court, takes the picture (and is requested for a proper one if he doesn't take a good enough one), and sends it to Playboy. Playboy calls back and tells Niko which one to kill. Niko successfully kills Marlon.
+
Go to the Swinger Park and approach the basketball court (but don't enter it) and, using the camera phone, take a photograph of the people inside the park and send it to Playboy X. Repeat this until Playboy phones Niko telling him which one is Bridges.
   
If you aim a gun at any of the gang members, the game forces you to kill ''all'' of them, and you will fail the mission if one of them gets away because of how it may have been Marlon.
+
Bridges has three armed bodyguards who will start shooting at Niko if he gets too close or fires a shot in Bridges' direction. At the same time, Bridges will escape on foot, leave the courts and drive off.
   
  +
The easiest way to kill Bridges is to use a [[Sniper Rifle]] or any other long-range weapon. Wait outside the courts and once Playboy X identifies Bridges, quickly aim at his head and shoot him, after killing Bridges, his bodyguards will go after the player, just escape the area to complete the mission.
   
  +
One interesting way of doing this mission by using the suggested long-range weapon is to head to the [[Pay 'N' Spray]] around the corner of the basketball court, and to climb the ladder behind it. Keep climbing ladders to the firehouse's roof. From here, there is a perfect opportunity to [[Sniper Rifle|snipe]] Marlon and his friends without them having a chance to fire back. The player can also climb a housing project and snipe for there, but getting to the top requires climbing several floors and even on the roof it can take a while to place a shot.
   
==Walkthrough==
+
Be careful, if the player aim a gun at any of the gang members before the target is identified, the game forces the player to kill ''all'' of them, and the mission will fail if one of them escapes because it would be impossible to identify Bridges before Playboy's confirmation text.

Playboy: "Some motherfucker’s been calling me a phony, calling me a snitch, calling me all kinds of bullshit."
Niko: "Big deal."
Playboy: "Yeah, big deal. Damn right! Until I discovered, that same motherfucker? Well...he’s got some real loose lips."
Playboy X tells Niko Bellic about Marlon Bridges

"Photo Shoot" is a mission in Grand Theft Auto IV given to protagonist Niko Bellic by Playboy X from his penthouse on Xenotime Street in Northwood, Algonquin, Liberty City.

DescriptionEdit

Playboy suspects that drug dealer Marlon Bridges has been 'snitching' on him. He wants Niko to go to the Swinger Park basketball courts on Exeter Avenue and kill Bridges and his friends. Niko doesn't know what Bridges looks like and after unsuccessfully trying to describe him, Playboy gives Niko his camera phone, so that Niko can take a picture at the basketball courts to allow Playboy to inform Niko which one is Bridges.

Mission objectivesEdit

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Go to the Swinger Park on Exeter Avenue.
  • Take a picture of the gang members and send it to Playboy.
  • Take down Marlon.

WalkthroughEdit

Go to the Swinger Park and approach the basketball court (but don't enter it) and, using the camera phone, take a photograph of the people inside the park and send it to Playboy X. Repeat this until Playboy phones Niko telling him which one is Bridges.

Bridges has three armed bodyguards who will start shooting at Niko if he gets too close or fires a shot in Bridges' direction. At the same time, Bridges will escape on foot, leave the courts and drive off.

The easiest way to kill Bridges is to use a Sniper Rifle or any other long-range weapon. Wait outside the courts and once Playboy X identifies Bridges, quickly aim at his head and shoot him, after killing Bridges, his bodyguards will go after the player, just escape the area to complete the mission.

One interesting way of doing this mission by using the suggested long-range weapon is to head to the Pay 'N' Spray around the corner of the basketball court, and to climb the ladder behind it. Keep climbing ladders to the firehouse's roof. From here, there is a perfect opportunity to snipe Marlon and his friends without them having a chance to fire back. The player can also climb a housing project and snipe for there, but getting to the top requires climbing several floors and even on the roof it can take a while to place a shot.

Be careful, if the player aim a gun at any of the gang members before the target is identified, the game forces the player to kill all of them, and the mission will fail if one of them escapes because it would be impossible to identify Bridges before Playboy's confirmation text.

  • The mission is a literal reference to the term "Photo Shoot", as it requires taking a photo of the gang, sending it to Playboy, and shooting Marlon.
