Tricks of the Triad is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars given by Wu 'Kenny' Lee. This mission introduces the game's drug dealing feature, teaching the player to sell and buy drugs.


Huang first meets with Uncle Kenny at his restaurant. Uncle Kenny tells him that business in drug dealing is high, and he needs to make a fortune out of it. So, he tells Huang to go over to his apartment, where he stashed some samples of drugs, and to take them to a dealer who is willing to take them off his hands in Steinway.

First, you'll need to go to your nearby apartment. When you walk in, you'll notice a red toolbox. This is your stash box, which can hide any drugs you have. Click on it, and you'll find the different drug catagories. Only one is available for now, which is Acid. Normaly you can select how much you need, but Uncle Kenny wants you to sell them all. Click on the check sign, and it'll be transfered to your Holdall, the bag which holds all of your drugs to be traded, and ones that have been bought.

Then, drive over to the dealer on your GPS. He'll be marked with a blue briefcase, and is in a Firefly Projects basketball court. Sell all of the Acid, and after that the dealer will tell you something. Security cameras are in the discreet locations dealers pick, and more and more of them are being arrested. Because of this, the prices for drugs are skyhigh, and until the cameras are destroyed the prices will drop.

Shortly after this, another dealer called Danny e-mails you on your PDA that he has some rock-bottom cheap coke for sale. He'll be marked by a coke sign and a red arrow meaning the dealer is selling. Drive over to Meadows Park to meet him, and buy all the coke he has. But then, cops begin to bust the deal. You'll need to stash the coke in your apartment before you get busted, or the police will confiscate it. Once you get back to your apartment, enter it and stash the coke in your stash box. Then, exit and the mission is completed.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Some samples have been stashed at your apartment, go there and collect them
  • Find Kenny's dealer in East Island City
  • Approach the dealer
  • Find the dealer who emailed you from Meadows Park
  • Approach the dealer
  • Stash the coke at your apartment before you get busted


Since this introduces drug dealing, the mini game is unlocked for anytime. Finding new dealers will add them to your map, and make sure that you have enough drugs to sell and enough money to buy. From time to time, dealers will e-mail you with special discounts on drugs, or times where they tell you if you sell them a particular type of drug, they'll pay you big time with cash. There are up to 80 dealers to find, and they'll be in discreet locations for you to deal with them.

This mission also unlocks the 100 cameras scattered around Liberty City for destruction. The more you destroy, the lower the prices for drugs go down. This is GTA Chinatown Wars's version of hidden packages.

Mission Replay description

"Land of the free, my ass. This place is gonna be land of the freebasing just as soon as I find more dealer contacts.

This town is so full of crackheads, deadbeats, and junkies that I'm gonna be flying home on my own jet - maybe even my own airline.

Still, this city's security cameras are a bitch - maybe I should do something about them. Like I said, land of the free, my ass."
