Time to Think is a mission in The Betrayal of Jimmy.

This mission is given by Tam Brodie. BJ Icon B
"Jimmy! Tam. Things are getting a little complicated with the Chinese. Some asshole called Eddie Fu beat the shit out of me cousin Sean and his crew last night. Now you know me, Jimmy, I'm a family man. I'm gonna rip Eddie Fu's balls off and feed them to the rats. But first I'm going to destroy his crew and burn the whole of Chinatown to the ground. Just get out there and smash some Chinese businesses for now, would you?"


This mission introduces Tam Brodie, the boss of the Irish Gang, who regularly contracts the services of Jimmy.

Before you begin you may want to visit Harry's Gun Shop in Kingston and stock up on as much ammo as you can carry, as you will go through a hefty amount of it on this one. If you're short on funds you can do the Culver Empire Theft mission to make some first.

The businesses you'll be shooting up are both Dipton Apparel shops. Drive to the first in Chinatown where you will find a few Triads at the door. Once they're dealt with go inside and start shooting the place up. The things to concentrate on are the pictures, clock, radio, and glass. To help compensate for the amount of ammo you'll be using, go ahead and rob the cash register if you wish.

As with most missions you will inevitably attract the attention of other gang members as well as the police so deal with them as necessary. Once you're done you can help yourself to a free change of clothing on your way out which will clear the wanted status you most likely have.

Make your way to the second shop in Oyster Bay but be mindful that the Triads are now on alert and you may have to battle your way through several once you arrive. When you have successfully destroyed this shop get to the safe zone to end the mission.


  • On missions to destroy shops it can be confusing to know when you have done enough damage as the on screen message can easily go unnoticed in the carnage. An easy way to tell is when the marker on your mini-map turns from red to blue.
