Persuading Billy that they must return it to them, he and Jim are made to hand it back themselves, but quickly come under fire as the Triads retaliate against them for the theft of their heroin.
While the pair survive, the gunfight prompts the arrival of the police, who arrest Billy for the incident, while the pair watch.
Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned is an action-adventure game set in an open world environment and played from a third-person perspective.
It features similar gameplay to that of Grand Theft Auto IV, and takes place in the same setting of Liberty City, the game only features around a third of the number of missions from that game, as was stated in an interview between IGN and the president of Rockstar North, which thus places the amount of time to complete it at approximately 10–15 hours, depending on how focused the player is on the storyline.
If Terry is called, he will drive to a location near to Johnny and sell him weapons and armour, while Clay can deliver a bike of the player's choice to him directly.
At a later stage in the game, Johnny can call one or the other, while on a mission, to gain back-up from them, with both capable of gaining experience that increases their health, combat abilities, and grant them better weapons.
His vice-president, Jonathan "Johnny" Klebitz, is not happy about his return, after having spent the past year as the club's acting president all while dealing with its debt, mainly from Billy's leadership, and having a truce with the Lost's rivals, The Angels of Death, in order for the Lost to run their drug and gun running operations more freely throughout Liberty City.
Following his release, Billy quickly breaks the truce with the Angels before instigating a war with them, causing tensions between him and Johnny to grow, with the latter more interested in keeping the club's business running smoothly than engaging in fights with the Angels.
The most prominent of these additions is the availability of mid-mission checkpoints, which can spare the player repeated trips to a given location in order to trigger and replay a failed mission again — an often criticised aspect of the Grand Theft Auto series.
The storyline shows Johnny's perspective in regard to the infamous diamond deal of Grand Theft Auto IV.
A combined standalone disc-based package titled Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City, which does not require the original Grand Theft Auto IV game to be played, was released and contains both The Lost and Damned and Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony.
Shortly after hearing news that the Lost MC's Enforcer, Jason Michaels, was killed in Broker, Billy prompts an attack on an Angels' clubhouse.
Despite assisting in the attack, Johnny is uncertain about his claim that the Angels killed Jason, which is further strengthened when he watches Billy and the club's secretary, Brian Jeremy, remove a stash of heroin after the attack.
Other side jobs see Johnny either stealing bikes or working for a congressman met during the game's story.
