    This is missable.

    Shortly after the begining of the game, on the way to Wan Chai, your bag will be stolen by a kid.

    You must spend all your money before that.

    Spend all the money on lighters. You can buy them for $50 each and sell them in pawn shops for $20 each meaning you'll retain 40% of your lost money.

    Destro WODWell im guessing ill just let that achievement be for now, then when im done with the game (finish it and all) ill just restart a game and do that one. If its just after the beginning of the game then no need to "waste" so much money and go sell the lighters... Just buy the lighters, do the event, then quit the game

    JeffchobMost pawn shops offer $20 - $22 for the 'Moon Wolf', 'Vampire', 'Jackal' and 'Scorpion' lighters. So make sure you buy the most duplicates of those ones. The other lighters and the Blue Stone you can buy from the street vendors only go for a measly $2 at most pawn shops.

    L15RHIs there no way of just saving before hand, getting rid of your money, get the achievement and then reloading the save? Or do you not recover all the money when you get the bag back
