Grand Theft Auto IV

Grand Theft Auto IV Achievements

Retail Therapy

Unlock the special ability of buying guns from a friend.  

Unlocked similarly to "Driving Mr. Bellic" except for with Little Jacob.

This ability allows you to purchase guns and have them delivered through your cellphone, same as you can order cabs from Roman, and will be unlocked after you achieve a 75% "Like" level, and will go away if you drop below 40%. Jacob is awake from 1pm to 4am. See "Liberty City (5)" for advice on what activities will help raise his "Like" level the best.

You can check your progress:
Start--> Stats--> General--> Jacob Like

**Can be done after completing story mode**

Just keep phoning Little Jacob and taking him places and eventually he'll let you buy guns from him :)

Doing his missions and hanging out with him boosts his fondness of you. Eventually he'll offer you his services.

Okay so im on my 3rd playthrough (yes i enjoy playing it over, ive always done it with all the gta's after a certain amount of time :P) and i figured it would be good to get his ability available as quick as possible, as soon as the delivery missions opened up i did all of them, im at 90% respect with him but still no option for this so im wondering what the actual trigger is, must be a certain mission level aswell.

Can you still unlock this achievement when you've completed the story? If yes, how?
