Bull in a China Shop ia a mission in Grand Theft Auto IV given to Niko Bellic by Vladimir Glebov to collect some past due protection money.


Niko meets Vlad at the Comrades Bar over on Mohawk Ave (across the street from the Hove Beach safehouse). During a cutscene, Niko and Vlad converse. Vlad, despite repeated insults, actually seems to like Niko, and trusts him enough to send him out on a mission. Vlad asks Niko to deal with a china shop owner who owes Vlad protection money. Vlad asks Niko to not hurt the man, but to get the money. The scene ends with Vlad offering Niko a Baseball Bat. Niko arrives at the shop only to see that the door is locked and the owner is refusing to pay. Niko then smashes the window and the owner agrees to pay out of fear. Niko then takes the money to Vlad who is in the Comrades Bar. Vlad also reveals that the shop owner is dealing in illegal businesses back in the East of Asia, when he states ''Stupid jerk made a mistake telling me how much he gets for that shit back east. He's the biggest crook in the whole neighbourhood. Luckily I don't tell his customers what they're paying for.


After the cutscene, the player will head over to the china shop, located on Compton Avenue and Dukes Street. When the player arrive, the player will only find the owner of the establishment refusing to pay. The game will guide the player to a nearby green waypoint marker, where a brick amongst a pile of rubble can be picked up. The player may throw the brick through one of the store windows, or shoot at them with any weapon, or simply smash it with Niko's fist.

Another way to scare the shop owner is not to go into the yellow marker when the player get there and instead go to the other side of the street. Take out a sniper rifle and shoot one of the windows beside the door. Note that this will change the cutscene where the shop owner exits the store.

Once the store owner gets scared enough to choke up the money, Niko will call Vlad up on the phone and let him know about his success. He'll then be ordered back to the bar to give up the money. The GPS will, once again, get you to the location easily. Once back at the bar, get out of the car, enter, watch the finalizing cutscene, and give Vlad his cash.
