Chapter I (Missions 1-11)
When you arrive in Las Venturas for the first time Austin says his first words "Feels good to be home" Austin and his partner drive to a motel located in North Venturas where he says they can get a change of clothes and lay low. Here is where Austin meets the owner of the motel, a middle eastern man named Ramza Salah. He gives Austin and his partner a change of clothes and a place to stay. Here we learn that the protagonist is named Austin Tyko and his partner in the escape is named Kyle Miller. After a night at the hotel Austin and Kyle head over to Austins' childhood home in Southeast Venturas. When you arrive you find the house deserted with a for sale sign on the outside and Chris' family nowhere to be found. We also learn of Austin' background as a Marine who returned to find his hometown in financial ruin and his family on the verge of falling apart.
Over the next few missions you and Kyle live at the motel and do odd jobs for Ramza in order to pay for your stay. These jobs include the combat tutorial involving a shootout with crackheads who have infested Ramza's motel and driven away business "I can live with the Pimps, Hos and Drug pushers but the addicts. Can't live with em." says Ramza. Austin and Kyle also take up some work for one of Austins' childhood friends named Patrick who owns a mod shop only a few blocks from Austins' childhood home. Patrick gives Austin a cell phone to keep in touch. And In his missions you do a lot of driving and learn the layout of the city. As well as learn of the new car Mod features and Patrick's list of wanted vehicles for you to steal. The Act concludes with a shootout with the East Side disciples. A local street gang that's been putting pressure on Patrick's business.
Chapter 2 (Missions 11-20)
After Austin and Kyle help out Patrick in defending his shop from the Disciples, Austin receives a call from Patrick's sister Kristi whom Austin had a fling with during his high school years. This starts a mission that involves taking Kristi out on a date to a comedy show at the Lion's Den casino. Afterwards you can call Kristi whenever you want to take her out and she becomes Austins' first girlfriend. Kyle gives Austin a ring and tells him to meet him at a bar located down the street from Ramza's Motel. He lets Austin know of a possible business connection with the Gambetti crime family out of Liberty City. He says they were once big players in Las Venturas but were pushed out by the F.I.B in the 1980s but now they want back into the city's crime world.
They have set up operation at a quarry located just a few minutes south of the city. Austin and Kyle travel to the Hunter Quarry and meet up with the Gambetti's. The officer in command lets Austin and Kyle know that they have connections within the LVPD and could get police and F.I.B attention off of them if they help them take back some of their territory in Las Venturas. The two cannot refuse this offer. Austin takes the next few missions at the Hunter quarry office trailer working for the Gambettis on a small scale defending their interests from street gangs and the police. He also picks up work from Ramon Frank through his work with the Gambettis. The jobs he does for Ramon involve retrieving information on police corruption withing the LVPD that him and The Gambetti family could use to their advantage. He also tries to dig up some information on the whereabouts of his family by trying to look up any info he can find on the internet. This mission would serve as a brief intro to the internet.
