"My eagerly-talking friend at FIB has an illegal wiretap that's been compromised. If we fix it for him, he'll give us the name of their rat."
Wade Heston, briefing Huang Lee on his Fed contact's final 'legally sensitive' request.

Scrambled is a mission given to Huang Lee by Wade Heston in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars.

Mission

LCPD undercover detective, Wade Heston, vaguely emails Huang Lee, instructing him to meet him in Purgatory. Huang drives over to the specified location and meets up with Heston, who, impressed at the success of Huang's first mission in destroying Zhou Ming's contraband ship for his FIB contact, introduces him to the final job. According to Heston, his FIB contact has an "illegal wiretap" that has been hacked into by an unknown party, and sternly instructs Huang to destroy the "scramblers" interfering with the wiretap.

Huang gets into a car, locates, and drives to the first scrambler using his interference meter. The first scrambler is a Gumshoe parked in an alley, guarded by enemies with weak weapons. Huang kills all enemies in the alley, destroys the scrambler, and searches for the second one. The second scrambler is a stationary unit, located on the roof of a RON gas station. The enemies have upgraded weapons this time, but Huang manages to kill them all and destroy the scrambler. Huang leaves the gas station roof and searches for the third, and last, scrambler. Huang notices the interference meter change on its own, so the scrambler must be on the move. Despite this, Huang sniffs them down and does a drive by on their vehicle, destroying it and killing all of the occupants. The mission ends.
