This Ain't Checkers is a mission in the episodic content The Ballad of Gay Tony, given to the player by Mori Kibbutz.


Mori explains to Luis that they must go to the Algonquin heliport to get onboard a helicopter. The two drive to the heliport in Mori's Buffalo, while Mori says that this competition is for "high roller cats" only. Upon arrival, they are given parachutes and are lifted up above South Algonquin and given instructions on the fundamentals of the race.

Once the cutscene ends, the player must pull the ripcord on the parachute and commandeer a boat idling at the dock below. After reaching a boat, the player must guide the boat through a series of checkpoints until they reach land in Westdyke. The player must then choose one of four cars, each equipped with nitro. Then skillfully use the nitro to drive to the finish line in Middle Park. Once the finish line is reached, A cutscene will play, ending with Mori making up excuses for why he lost, going so far as to say someone sabotaged his car.

  • When freefalling, make sure that you only release the parachute when you're in first place. Pulling the ripcord before being in first place will instantly deny the "Always First" scoring mark.
  • The Bullet GT waiting at the final portion of the race has a unique lime green colour. After finishing the mission, you can take it to your safehouse to keep.
  • If you take any other car than the red Buffalo, Mori will be seen driving that car, because it is his car.
  • This mission is the only opportunity in the game to get Mori's uniquely red Buffalo without failing the mission.
