"You were the stupid one, Vladdy boy. Nobody fucks with my family."
Niko Bellic

Uncle Vlad is a mission in Grand Theft Auto IV, given to the protagonist Niko Bellic by his cousin Roman Bellic and introduces the player to executions, a type of assassination which displays a cutscene, if a pistol is used.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Go with Roman and look for Vlad at Comrades.
  • Don't let Vlad escape.
  • Vlad is fleeing in his car. Get back to your vehicle and chase after him.
  • Chase after Vlad.
  • Vlad's crashed his car. He's trying to escape on foot.


After Niko and his cousin Roman discover that the local Russian criminal Vladimir Glebov was sleeping with Roman's girlfriend, so Niko pressured Roman into going with him to kill Vlad. Roman believes this is a bad idea, as Mikhail Faustin, Vlad's boss, may kill Niko and Roman in retaliation.

Niko and Roman drive to Comrades Bar. Niko confronts Vlad, who escapes out the back door of the bar and drives away in his Marbelle, leaving Niko to fight his two goons. Niko kills or evades the goons and then gives chase in his own car, eventually cornering Vlad on the eastern shore of the Humboldt River, Vlad will tell Niko that if he kills him, Niko will be throwing his and Roman's lives away for "that piece of Puerto Rican chocha", and that he have powerfull friends who will find and kill then, Niko ignores Vlad and shoots him in the head at point blank range. However, Roman thinks that killing Vlad may make his goons kill Niko and Roman. But, Niko confronts Roman and says that everything would be fine.

Roman flees, eventually hiding in a dumpster on Tulsa Street, Broker, thinking that it would be a good hiding spot from Mikhail Faustin, Vlad's boss.

Niko Bellic I thought all I'd been doing since I got here was helping you out.
Roman Bellic You have, you have, but I mean officially. I need more drivers for the cab company. I'll pay you properly.
Niko Bellic Okay then.
Roman Bellic Just call me whenever you want to take a fare. You can do as many as you like, Niko. There are always more customers.

Roman Bellic Shit! Shit! Shit!
Niko Bellic When I was in the army... we were going on a mission... to ambush a squad who had killed a lot of innocent people. They were our enemies... but we never did it. There were fifteen of us. All boys from the village. But one of us betrayed the group. It was a setup... for money! Twelve people died, three escaped. I know the traitor was not me... So for ten years I've been searching for the other two. One of them lives here.
Roman Bellic Why are you telling me this now? Do you always get sentimental after you kill people?
Niko Bellic You kept asking...
Roman Bellic Wonderful! You're here on some revenge mission for something that happened ten years age. And you don't care whose life you ruin on the way?
Niko Bellic No.
Roman Bellic Well what?
Niko Bellic I don't know... I just want to know why they did it.
Roman Bellic Right now I don't think you're going to find out. Let's hide the body, at least for a while.
Niko Bellic Put him in the river...

Niko Bellic You go. I'll catch up with you later.

GTA 4 - Mission 13 - Uncle Vlad (1080p)



  • The events of The Lost and Damned begin after this mission.
  • The player automatically gets a pistol, if they do not already have one, after the cutscene where Vlad is cornered at the river.
  • Vlad's car is indestructible. Even if the player fires rocket launchers at the car, it will not explode, and the chase will still continue.
  • Vlad will wait outside the bar indefinitely until the player exits, though the game will continue to prompt you to chase him. Because of this, the player does not need to worry about taking too long.
  • This is the only time that Vlad appears outside of cutscenes, most likely because the player has to kill him. This is the same for Mikhail Faustin and Francis McReary.
  • If the player pushes Vlad in the river and then kills him, the cutscene will show Niko pulling Vlad in the water.
  • Vlad will still be covered in blood after his death, even if a weapon such as a Molotov Cocktail or Baseball Bat was used. 
  • After the player kills Vlad and the cutscene shows Niko dumping him, his body will disappear, and is nowhere to be seen in the river where it was dumped. The same applies in Tunnel of Death.
  • Vlad is covered in blood, but the actual blood on his torso has two black circles in its middle, like if he was shot there, and the blood on his head is actually from a wound on his cheek, this can also be noticed on Andrei
  • After Vlad crashes his car, the player is free to take it, but doing so will fail the mission. (Note that the car is smoking very badly).
    • Also, after the cutscene after Vlad's death, Vlad's car is nowhere to be seen.
