Paying Favours is the twentieth mission in The Getaway: Black Monday. It is an independent mission for protagonist Sam Thompson. This mission will not occur if you did not help Sam as protagonist Eddie O'Connor in Return to the Scene of the Crime. This is the last mission for Sam Thompson.


A cutscene is shown with Alexei and Viktor talking on the phone about Eddie, while Sam is eavesdropping. The call ends and Sam follows Alexei to the elevator and she takes the elevator down. The first thing that you should do when you get control of Sam, is jump to the light fixture above by pressing triangle. Go forward into the dark room, and then jump down. Go around the room and at the end, there will be a small passageway. Press X to get near it, and then press square to crawl through it. Keep going and you will get to a small area. Press square, and then X to escape from crawling and enter this small area. You will notice that there is another small passageway. Go through that one and reach the other side. Go up the stairs, and you will see Alexei through the cage. You should be in stealth mode (press circle). What you have to do is press triangle by the wooden plank to get up to the platform above and get out of the caged area. Wait by the area where the platform makes a 90 degree turn. A Skobel van will park under this area. After the van parks, drop in front of the van (which is just in front of the caged area). Then walk straight on the right side of the van and toward the Mercedes-Benz/Brabus looking sedan (Alexei's car). Avoid any puddles or other noise makers. The mission will end and we will see Sam enter the backseat of Alexei's car.

Mission Briefing[]


  1. Keeping your head down, follow Alexei out of the building.


Successfully completing this mission unlocks the twenty-first mission in the game, Beginning of the End.


  • Keep in mind that Alexei won't take forever to leave the bank. So, you'd better hurry if you want to get in his car. When you're in the parking lot, take cover by the end of the wall on the right. At this point, you should see two guards turning their back on you and a pillar with a "B" written on it. Roll towards that pillar and use it to climb onto the lighting. On the other side of the fence, you will have to crawl under the shelf in order to get to Alexei's car. To do so, there's a small space on the left, just after the wooden pallets.
