SPOILER WARNING: This page contains every Thief Simulator story mission and includes Vinny's dialogue between missions, as well as tips/walkthroughs for completing each step.

Throughout the game, the thief will be working for the Lombardis, a crime family that he owes money to for bailing him out of jail. He will receive phone calls from his main contact and primary antagonist, Vinny, who is the only character in the game with true dialogue. (The police, security guards, and tenants with guns will say a few words, but that has nothing to do with the story.) Following these missions will see the thief's debt paid, and then repayed with something a little extra from the Lombardis. This will also unlock the added NG+ Mode after the end game credits are watched.

A few notes:

  • Vinny's Dialogue is written how it is written in the game, which may include some spelling/grammar errors.
  • The monetary reward value listed below for each mission is a combined value of all mission steps.
  • Rewards in the form of loot/XP the player has an opportunity to pick up during the mission are not included in the list below. See the individual house pages for available loot and values.
  • Mission steps and dialogue in green will be skipped if completed ahead of time.
  • Many of these missions cannot be skipped because the target items do not spawn until the mission is initiated.

Mission:
Tutorial Part 1
Location(s): Greenview 111, Greenview 110
Reward(s): None
Item(s) Required: Crowbar, Flashlight Item(s) Acquired: Crowbar, Flashlight, Hatchback Car, Minor loot from Greenview 110
Walkthrough: The tutorial is fairly self-explanatory, since each step is meant to introduce the player to various aspects of gameplay. Pick up and equip the crowbar, use it to break 111's fence, then sneak through the yard without being seen by either tenant. On the way to 110, a flashlight will be found on the ground. Pick it up and turn it on, then use the crowbar to break one of 110's windows. Once inside, steal at least the toaster or cash on the kitchen counter, then leave out the front window. (Stealing all items will help boost the thief's starting money.) Head down the sidewalk to the right to find a car waiting for the thief, then get in and drive up the road to the immediate right.

Mission:
Tutorial Part 2
Location(s): Garage, Pawn Shop, Greenview 109
Reward(s): $60
Item(s) Required: Crowbar, Flashlight Item(s) Acquired: Old TV
Walkthrough: Continuing the tutorial, head inside the garage and get some sleep. An hour's sleep is all that's required to get the next call prompting players to check the computer. Vinny will introduce the thief to two websites: Tools4Thieves and StealYourForums. The first available hints on the forums must be purchased, but they're free of charge. Grab them and head to the car; a new option to visit the Pawn Shop will be available when the car is started.

Sell everything that was stolen from 110, then head back to Greenview and visit 109. Use the crowbar to break in the back of the fence, then break in a window and locate the TV in the bedroom. Don't forget to grab the key to the front door from the night stand next to the bed. Grab the TV and haul it out the front door, then carry the TV back to the car and store it in the trunk. Back at the garage, Vinny will finish the computer tutorial by introducing BlackBay and Rent-A-Thug, then the player will need to accept the job he's placed on the website.

Mission:
Break 110's Dishes
Location(s): Greenview 110, Garage
Reward(s): $50
Item(s) Required: Crowbar, DIY Simple Lockpick Item(s) Acquired: DIY Simple Lockpick (If not already purchased)
Walkthrough: This mission could also be considered part of the tutorial, since it introduces the player to side jobs from the Rent-A-Thug website. It's a good idea to already have at least one DIY Simple Lockpick by now, but if not, the rest of the mission will take the player through the steps to acquire the skill and item. Head back to Greenview, break into 110, then use the crowbar to break the dishes on the counter in the living room/bedroom. If the player has not yet learned lockpicking level 1 or purchased a DIY lockpick, Vinny will take this opportunity to grumble at the thief about it. Whether yelled at or skipped, head back to the garage and use the training lock to earn another call from Vinny.
Phonecall #1: "Okay. Now, drive back to 110, and break some dishes with a crowbar."
Mission Steps:
  • Break the dishes at 110
Phonecall #2: "I just heard you don't even know how to pick a lock! Go learn the basics. I'm sure you've got enough skill by now."
Mission Steps:

Phonecall #3: "Great. Now, go buy yourself a DIY Simple Lockpick on Tools4Thieves."

  • Buy DIY Simple Lockpick on Tools4Thieves
Phonecall #4: "Before you get yourself into trouble, try it on a training lock. I left one in the garage."
Mission Steps:
  • Open the training lock in your garage

Mission:
The Important Box
Location(s): Greenview 111
Reward(s): $100
Item(s) Required: DIY Simple Lockpick Item(s) Acquired: Box with Shady Content
Walkthrough: This mission introduces the thief to tenant routines. It's not necessary to wait until 7:00 AM to move the mission forward; however, that is the time when one tenant is out while another is home but close to leaving. From the nearby parking lot, the thief can walk up a concrete slab near 111's fence, then look over the fence and through the barred windows. Mark the tenant still at home, then wait for him to leave. Use the DIY lockpick to go in through the front door--the windows cannot be broken into because of the bars. Take the box from the bathroom, then head back to the garage and sell it on BlackBay.
Phonecall #1: "You did a good job on that old TV in the empty house. For a real job, you gotta scope the joint. Go to one eleven by 7 AM, and watch."
Mission Steps:
  • Go to Greenview 111 around 7am and mark the tenant (default: middle mouse button)
Phonecall #1: "There's a box in there. Wait for them to leave and get me that box."
Mission Steps:
  • Wait til no one is home and steal the important box from 111
  • Send the box via BlackBay


Back to the Top
Mission:
Break 112's Window
Location(s): Greenview 112
Reward(s): $100
Item(s) Required: Crowbar Item(s) Acquired: None
Walkthrough: By now, players should be regularly checking Rent-A-Thug for side missions to do alongside the main ones; they will help raise the thief's funds and XP more quickly. For this mission, simply head up to 112, smash a window with the crowbar, then run away. The player is free to leave at this point, but there is time and opportunity to loot the house if the police are evaded.
Phonecall #1: "The Lombardi's think their friend on Greenview 112 needs a new window, but they think the one they got's fine. Go prove 'em wrong."
Mission Steps:
  • Break a window in 112 then hide or run away


Back to the Top
Mission:
Break 113's Toilet
Location(s): Garage, Greenview 113
Reward(s): $150
Item(s) Required: Crowbar, Lockpick Item(s) Acquired: Lockpick (If not already purchased)
Walkthrough: Once again, if the player hasn't learned lockpicking level 2 yet, Vinny will insist on doing so before the next mission. A new training lock will appear and need to be interacted with before the next call. Purchase a lockpick (two or more would be ideal), pick the training lock, then head to 113. An open window in the back gives easy access to the house interior, but all one really needs to do is break the window to the bathroom, climb through it, then break the toilet and climb back out. Return to the garage for the next mission.
Phonecall #1: "You need to learn how to deal with standard locks."
Mission Steps:
  • Learn Lockpicking Lvl 2 (level up by stealing stuff)
  • Open a standard training lock.
Phonecall #2: "If it ain't broke, fix it with a crowbar! Word on the street is the toilet in Greenview 113 is not broke."
Mission Steps:
  • Break the toilet in 113 (buy hints for help)


Back to the Top
Mission:
Break a Car Window
Location(s): Greenview 104
Reward(s): $350
Item(s) Required: Crowbar, Lockpick Item(s) Acquired: None
Walkthrough: It isn't necessary for the thief to purchase the climbing gloves to advance this mission, but it can help considerably. Learn agility level 2, then Vinny will tell the thief to break a car window. Greenview 104 is a townhouse connected to two others in a row, with a connecting back yard that can be more discreet than the front.

With climbing gloves, the thief can enter 104 from the front balcony using a lockpick on the door. The garage is one level down on the first floor; breaking either window with the crowbar will satisfy the mission requirement. Stay and loot, or leave out of the garage door and return home for the next call.
Phonecall #1: "For the next task, I need you to learn how to climb a lattice. Like a man-spider, you know?"
Mission Steps:
  • Learn Agility 2 (level up by stealing stuff)
Phonecall #2: "Hey, you know what else ain't broke, is Greenview 104's windshield."
Mission Steps:
  • Break a car window in 104


Back to the Top
Mission:
The TV at 108
Location(s): Greenview 108
Reward(s): $500 - $1200 if the TV is stolen instead of broken.
Item(s) Required: Climbing Gloves, Mini Electric Lock Pick Item(s) Acquired: TV worth $700 (Optional)
Walkthrough: 108's front yard is pretty open and so is a window on the second floor. Use the lattice in front of the porch to climb up and slip through the window. The TV in question is in the room to the right of the window, which requires the mini electric lock pick to open. The TV can be smashed with a crowbar if the player wants to end the mission quickly, but carrying it out one of the windows will earn the thief an additional $700 when it's sold at the Pawn Shop.
Phonecall #1: "You're still weak on the lockpicks. Up your game."
Mission Steps:
  • Learn lockpicking Lvl 3
Phonecall #2: "Greenview 108 spends way too much time in front of the TV. Be a good neighbor and help him out."
Mission Steps:
  • Break or steal a big TV in 108


Back to the Top
Mission:
The Heirloom Bracelet
Location(s): Greenview 107, Garage
Reward(s): $300 - $800 if the Heirloom Bracelet is sold.
Item(s) Required: Climbing Gloves, Mini Electric Lock Pick, Jewelry Tools, Heirloom Bracelet Item(s) Acquired: Heirloom Bracelet worth $500
Walkthrough: There are vines growing on the left side of the fence near the back. Climb over and use the mini electric lock pick on the back door. Sneak upstairs and turn left, then pass through the open corridor to the bedroom. The heirloom bracelet is sitting on the nightstand next to the bed. Leave through a window and climb back over the same fence to escape.

At the garage, the thief needs to disassemble the bracelet to finish the mission. Approach the workbench along the back wall and interact with it. Select the heirloom bracelet from the menu, then select a gem to get started. The interaction button needs to be held in order to remove the gem from its setting. Do this for all the gems, then the next mission will begin.
Phonecall #1: "You don't want someone to see their own necklace at the pawn shop. You gotta break it down first."
Mission Steps:
  • Learn Appraisal Lvl 2
Phonecall #2: "Greenview 107 don't like our protection plan. I hope nothing happens to the jewelry in their bedroom."
Mission Steps:
  • Steal jewelry from 107
Phonecall #3: "Always remember to break down the jewelry. There's a tool for it in the shop."
Mission Steps:
  • Disassemble the jewelry at home


Back to the Top
Mission:
Important Documents
Location(s): Greenview 102
Reward(s): $600
Item(s) Required: Climbing Gloves, Glass Knife, Safecracking Tools Item(s) Acquired: None (The documents disappear immediately)
Walkthrough: A DIY Lockpick can be used on the gate to the left of the front door, but it's more discreet to climb over the vines along the back of the fence. Head left around the house to the windows of the main bedroom. The tenants never enter their own bedroom, so the thief can easily open one of the windows with a glass cut knife. The documents are in the safe next to the bed; use the safecracking tools to open it, then climb right back out the window and head back over the back yard fence. For future visits, a key to the front door is kept in the garage.
Phonecall #1: "A professional knows how to handle a real safe. Are your lock picking skills up to the job?"
Mission Steps:
  • Learn Lockpicking skill Lvl 4
  • Open the training safe at home
Phonecall #2: "An important document has gone missing from Mister Lombardi's desk. I got a feeling it's in Greenview 102. Be a good debt slave and check it out for me."
Mission Steps:
  • Steal documents from 102


Back to the Top
Mission:
A Special Tablet
Location(s): Greenview 101, Garage
Reward(s): $1160
Item(s) Required: Climbing Gloves, Lockpick, Glass Knife, Safecracking Tools, Cleared Leovon 100, Hacking Tools Item(s) Acquired: Leovon 100 to clear, Cleared Leovon 100
Walkthrough: Oddly enough, this mission does not start with a call from Vinny. As soon as the documents are retrieved from 102, the player gets the task of marking a camera at 101. Simply walk across the street from 102 and stand at the door of the gate to 101. The security camera is close enough to be marked just by looking up and to the right. Notice that the camera's line of sight covers the sidewalk beyond the gate--it will have to be disabled before the thief can get in.

A power box can be found behind the house. Use a Lockpick to open it, then flip the switch to turn off the security camera. Security will be turned back on in about five minutes, but that's nothing to worry about once in the yard. Use the Lockpick on the front gate, then climb the lattice in front of the porch. The safe with the tablet is under the window to the right. Use a glass knife to open the window, climb in, then open the safe and get the goods.

If the security camera is on again, the player can use the car gate to escape the lot. Back at the garage, Vinny will require the thief to learn Electronics level 1 if he hasn't already, then hack the tablet at the laptop near the couch. Send the tablet on BlackBay once it's ready.
Mission Steps:
  • Mark the camera in 101
Phonecall #1: "You know how to wipe a mobile, right? See that you do."
Mission Steps:
  • Steal a tablet from 101 (get a glass knife)
Phonecall #2: "That tablet you got there is special. Wipe it and send it to me as proof."
Mission Steps:
  • Learn Electronics skill Lvl 1
Phonecall #3: "It's time to check your hacking skills. Make sure to buy the right tools."
Mission Steps:
  • Hack the tablet at home
Phonecall #4: "Good work. At this rate, we'll be done with you in no time. Now send me the tablet on BlackBay."
Mission Steps:
  • Send the tablet via BlackBay

Mission:
Car Theft 101
Location(s): Greenview 104
Reward(s): $1,000 - $2,900 if the Bolthorn is taken apart and sold.
Item(s) Required: Climbing Gloves, Lockpick, Car Lock Pick Gun Item(s) Acquired: Bolthorn 86 Classic
Walkthrough: Players should still be familiar with this home from the mission to break a car window. Climb the vines on the right side of the balcony, then use a Lockpick to open the door. Head downstairs and enter the garage at the end of the hall. Use the Car Lock Pick Gun to open the truck's door, then climb in and hotwire the car. Don't forget to open the garage for a quick getaway.
Phonecall #1: "You know they buy car parts on BlackBay, right? But you gotta skill up if you want something to sell."
Mission Steps:
  • Learn Car Theft skill Lvl 1
Phonecall #2: "It's best to learn from practice. I know an old car you could bring in. You know, for maintenance."
Mission Steps:
  • Steal Bolthorn 86 Classic from 104

Mission:
Package for 204
Location(s): Garage, Richie R. 204
Reward(s): $1600
Item(s) Required: Glass Knife, Mini Electric Lock Pick Item(s) Acquired: None
Walkthrough: Use the mini electric lock pick on the front gate, but watch out for the camera to the left of the path. Head to the right across the lawn and to the side of the house. Use the glass knife on the second set of windows; the nightstand in question will be to the left once the thief climbs in. Head back out by retracing his steps.
Phonecall #1: "Now you're ready for the real deal. You keep this up and you'll be a debt free man. We left a box by your gate. Pick it up."
Mission Steps:
  • Pick up the box near your gate
Phonecall #2: "Go to Richie R. two-oh-four and stick it (in) his bedroom drawer. Don't let him see you."
Mission Steps:
  • Deliver the box to Richie R 204 and return, (remember to mark the cameras) [unnoticed]


Back to the Top
Mission:
The Hidden Camera
Location(s): Garage, Richie R. 206
Reward(s): $3770
Item(s) Required: Micro Camera, Mini Electric Lock Pick, Hacking PDA Item(s) Acquired:
Walkthrough: This house is a bit more challenging due to the glass cut sensors on the windows, spacious front lawn, and lack of windows along the back. Additionally, there are three security cameras in the front with moving lines of sight. Use the mini electric lock pick to open the gate, wait for the first camera to make room, then head to the right in front of the nearby bushes. Wait for the second security camera to pan away from the driveway, then make a run for the house's front wall. The third camera pans in front of the porch; wait for it to move, then get on the porch and use the PDA to unlock the front door.

Things are much easier once inside. The panel for the security cameras is on a wall close to the grandfather clock in the hallway. Head to the end of the hall from the front door, then turn left to find that panel and the living room. Plant the camera on a shelf, disable the security, then head back out the front door.

The thief needs to sleep for at least an hour to advance the mission. If he sleeps in a parking lot, he will still have to return home to get Vinny's next call. Head back to 206 and repeat the above steps to get the camera. Sell it on BlackBay to get another call.
Phonecall #1: "You're doing alright, you know that? For the next job, go skill up on electronics for me."
Mission Steps:
  • Learn electronics skill Lvl 2
  • Disable test alarm at home
Phonecall #2: "You'll need a hidden camera. Buy one."
Mission Steps:
  • Buy a micro camera
Phonecall #3: "We need you (to) plant a camera. Go to two-oh-six and stick it in the living room. Don't ask."
Mission Steps:
  • Plant a micro camera in the living room of 206 [unnoticed]
  • Get some sleep
Phonecall #4: "It's time to get our cam. Go fetch it and bring it in. It's just the thing we need to wrap this up."
Mission Steps:
  • Take the micro camera from the living room of 206 [unnoticed]
  • Send the micro camera via BlackBay

Mission:
Repo Man at 201
Location(s): Richie R. 201
Reward(s): $2,000 - $10,900 if the Bolthorn Family MkV is taken apart and sold.
Item(s) Required: Climbing Gloves, DIY Simple Lockpick, Glass Knife, Car Lock Pick Gun Item(s) Acquired: Bolthorn Family MkV
Walkthrough: This entire mission can be skipped if the player has already stolen the car, but that will also skip over the reward money. There is a smaller yard connected to the main one that is very close to the nearby parking lot. Climbg over that fence and pick the gate; watch out for the moving camera posted at the upper corner to the right of the window. To open the car gate, the thief will need to sneak in through a window on the wall to the left--The car gate switch is in the kitchen, which should be on his right.

Once inside, the garage is down the hall and to the left. Players should disable the security cameras from the panel near the hall entrance before entering the garage. The Bolthorn has an alarm that needs to be disabled first, but then it's just a matter of using the drill in the door, hotwiring it, and driving out. The nearest neighborhood exit is to the right.
Phonecall #1: "If you want a good car, you gotta disable the alarm."
Mission Steps:
  • Learn car stealing lvl 2
Phonecall #2: "There's a car on two-oh-one and it's got something inside that belongs to us. Go bring it in."
Mission Steps:
  • Steal Bolthorn Family MkV from 201

Mission:
Message to 205
Location(s): Richie R. 205
Reward(s): $4,000 - $18,500 if the Vulcan Spectre is taken apart and sold.
Item(s) Required: Car Key Signal Cloner, Climbing Gloves Item(s) Acquired: Vulcan Spectre
Walkthrough: This is a fairly quick and easy mission if done between the hours of 11:00 PM - 4:00 AM, when the security guard is on the other side of the house. Climb the column of vines on the back of the fence close to the garage, then move around the garage to the front of the house. The thief can climb the blue gutter and reach a balcony with an unlocked door. The tenant will be in his bedroom, which is on the first floor and down the hall behind the staircase. Use the security panel at the entrance of the hall to disable the security cameras--there is one in the hallway that can't be walked around.

The thief only needs to be on the opposite side of the wall to clone the key signal from the tenant. Head back out the hall and stop by the piano, where the car gate switch can be found. A door to the garage is across the room to the left of the piano. Open the garage door, then drive out in the Vulcan Spectre. Watch out for the sharp turn.
Phonecall #1: "To get past security you have to think out of the box and learn how to climb pipes."

  • Steal Vulcan Spectre from the garage of 205

Mission:
The Replica
Location(s): Richie R. 202
Reward(s):
Item(s) Required: Climbing Gloves, DIY Simple Lockpick Item(s) Acquired: "Cottage by Picasso" replica
Walkthrough: This is the second-to-last mission, and it's initiated without any prompt from Vinny. Head to the right side of 202, where a single column of vines are clinging to the wall. Climb over, then mark a security camera next to the guard station. Stay to the right of the camera's line-of-sight and stop at a black lamp post between some bushes along the driveway. There is another security camera to mark, standing in some bushes across the drive. Sneak across to drive to get behind the bushes, then look to the right. The shed is easy to see and reach. Use a DIY Lockpick to open it and retrieve the painting.

Retrace the thief's steps, then throw the painting over the short part of the wall. Turn around and there will be a large rock to the right. Climb on top of that rock, then use a sprinting run to get back over the fence.
Mission Steps:
  • Steal panting replica from 202
Phonecall #1: "The last house has the best electronic locks around. Make sure you're ready, cause this job matters."
Mission Steps:

Mission:
The Real (Final) Deal
Location(s): Richie R. 208, Garage
Reward(s): $4200
Item(s) Required: Lockpick, "Cottage by Picasso" replica, "Cottage by Picasso" Item(s) Acquired: "Cottage by Picasso"
Walkthrough: This is the thief's last job before Vinny and the Lombardis cut him loose. It's also another mission that looks more challenging than it is.

Park the thief's vehicle behind the house and close to the shed, then climb on it and jump over the fence. This may be achieved with the hatchback as long as its trunk/boot is up like a ramp, but it is easily done with the van, which stands taller than the fence (Note: DO NOT park too close to the wall or on the sidewalk; the police will be called eventually). The replica is behind the shed, but can only be reached from on the property. Be mindful of the security camera nearby.

Pick the lock on the back door immediately across from the shed, then head left inside the house and up the stairs. Make another left, then a right, and move down the hall to a door past an intersection. This is the door to the office. Pick the lock and walk in with the replica; a cutscene will play showing the thief making the switch.

Fortunately, the authentic painting is rolled up and fits in the backpack. Grab it, then head out the office and take another left. Use the window at the end of the hall to climb on top of the garage, then walk forward past a wood awning and over the fence. At this point, you can return to your vehicle, but it may be quicker just to run for the nearest map edge.

Return to the Garage or the Hideout and send the painting via Blackbay. If you haven't already purchased the hideout, the story now requires it before ending the thief's business with Vinny. If the hideout is already being used, the thief will have to return to the garage to complete the next step. Pick up the package near the front gate and a cutscene will play. After the cutscene, the thief will return to the hideout, ready to plan his next move.
Phonecall #1: "I'll let you in on a little secret. This job, right now? That's it. You do this and you're a free man. Break the alarms, take the painting and leave the fake. Don't come back without the real thing."
Mission Steps:
  • Swap painting with replica in wall gap in 208
  • Steal the "Cottage by Picasso" painting from 208
Phonecall #2: "Great work. Send us the painting on BlackBay, and then we'll be done with you. I promise."
Mission Steps:
  • Send the "Cottage by Picasso" painting via BlackBay
  • Buy a house for a hideout

Mission:
Spyware Inc.
Location(s): Industrial St., Spyware Inc., Hideout
Reward(s): $500
Item(s) Required: Binoculars, Climbing Gloves, Hacking Laptop Item(s) Acquired: Hard drive with Lombardies info
Walkthrough: The thief is ready for revenge but before he gets it, he'll have to do a little shopping first. Start by driving along the road in the new industrial neighborhood and make a sharp right turn into some dirt behind the first building that will be on the right. A yellow diamond points to the exact spot the thief is supposed to stand. Use the binoculars to look directly below another diamond that appears beyond the fence of lot 303, then mark the security panel. The thief will have to run around the property to put the hacking laptop in range to disable it.

One security guard likes to hang out near the gate but he can be avoided by moving around the shipping containers. Move behind the building and look for a blue pipe, then climb up to the second level balcony where the door is unlocked. Turn left, then the hard drive will be sitting on a wooden desk on the left.

Head right back out to the balcony and look down the pipe to interact with it again--this will bring the thief back to the ground floor. Sneak or run for the gate, then head to the hideout (Note: Returning to the garage is pointless because all of the workstations are disabled). Use the hacking station near the storage locker to unlock the hard drive, then place the hard drive in the cardboard box sitting open on the workbench. The thief will need to interact with the pin board on the wall before the next step will begin.
Mission Steps:
  • Go to a spy location in the industrial neighborhood
  • Mark the gate control panel with binoculars
  • Hack the 303 gate panel from a distance with the hacking laptop
  • Steal the hard drive with the Lombardis shady deals from 303
  • Hack the hard drive at the hideout
  • Put the hard drive in the evidence box
  • Check the pin board

Mission:
The Warehouse
Location(s): The Warehouse, Hideout
Reward(s): $500
Item(s) Required: Hacking PDA, Safecracking Tools Item(s) Acquired: Binder with account details
Walkthrough: Entry into the Warehouse is easy with a van. The biggest challenge is the fact that the hiding places are not conveniently located, so the thief will need to be quick.

Drive around to the right side of the lot, where a lower section of the wall can be jumped. From there, a back door to the warehouse can be reached as long as the thief is mindful of security cameras and guards. Use the hacking PDA on the door, then head left to the nearest wall. Use the hacking PDA on the next door, and the account details will be inside the safe.

Getting out the front door might seem easy at this point, but it may be better to return to the back. Head for the wall where the van is parked, then move to the left and look for a raised platform. Use the stairs to get on the platform and do some platforming across the shipping containers to get back over the wall. Return to the hideout and add the evidence to the open box on the workbench in the garage.
Mission Steps:
  • Steal the account details from the safe in 301
  • Put the account details in the evidence box

Mission:
The Motor Shop
Location(s): The Motor Shop
Reward(s): $500
Item(s) Required: Hacking Laptop, Hacking PDA, Safecracking Tools Item(s) Acquired: Keycard - server room
Walkthrough: The thief will have to use the hacking laptop to open the front gate of the Motor Shop. Hug the outer wall of the property to avoid the security camera, then head left around the front building. A security guard may be in that little walkway beneath the overhang, but there are columns that make it easy to avoid his line of sight. Once behind the building, use the stairs to get up to the second level and hack the door of the office on the right.

The safe with the keycard is near the office desk. Once it's collected, leave the room and turn right towards the neon sign. As long as no guard is standing there, the thief can quickly jump off the second floor and run for the car gate.
Mission Steps:
  • Steal the keycard from the safe in 302

Mission:
Return to Spyware Inc.
Location(s): Spyware Inc., Hideout
Reward(s):
Item(s) Required: Climbing Gloves, Hacking Laptop, Keycard - server room Item(s) Acquired: USB Flash
Walkthrough: Much of this is a repeat of the initial visit to Software Inc.; however, the keycard can be used to open the front gate this time. Once again, head to the space behind the building and use the blue gutter to climb up to the second floor. Enter the unlocked door and head left, then go upstairs and find the server room door on the right. Interact with the keyboard on the wall of servers to receive a USB Flash drive that cannot be sold or dropped.

Leave the server room, head back down to the second floor, then go out the balcony and use the blue pipe to climb back down. Sneaking around the shipping crates in the parking lot is the most ideal way to get back outside without being caught.

Head back to the hideout and put the USB drive into the box on the workbench. At this point, the thief will carry the evidence box in his inventory. Check the pin board to add a new picture and start the next mission.
Mission Steps:
  • Hack the server located on the top floor of 303
  • Put the pendrive in the evidence box and take the box
