  • Bring lots of Snacks and Armor.
  • Use weapons with high ammo capacity, like the Combat MG and Unholy Hellbringer.

Arriving at the Duggan’s property in Tongva Hills will commence a conversation between Avery Duggan and Tao Cheng. The former wants to purchase the Diamond Casino & Resort in GTA Online, but the Chinese businessman isn’t buying it.

Protect Tao Cheng

You must protect the two VIPs and prevent their health bar from dropping to zero.

Enemies will approach on all sides, with occasional attack helicopters flying nearby.

We recommend aiming for the head and using the Combat MG or Unholy Hellbringer, as hordes will attack.

Take Out the Rest of Avery’s Guards

Once the number of hostiles decreases, Tao Cheng and his translator will move back to the sedan.

Wait for Tao and The Translator

Clear the aisle of hostiles and wait for the two VIPs to enter the Cognoscenti.

Go to the Country Club

Take Tao Cheng and his translator to a luxurious hotel.
