Game starts in Hong Kong as Wei Shen is a Drug smuggler and gets busted. Then he reveals himself as undercover police officer to Raymond Mark, another officer. Actually this bust was to make a contact with Jackie Ma. With the help of Jackie, he joins the local gang and gets introduced to Winston Chu. Winston is the leader of a gang named Water Street. He uses Wei to fight against Dogeyes.
Winston gets attacked by a Triad Gang, ”18k” but this time it’s on his wedding day. Winston and bride gets shot during wedding. By this time Uncle Po gets hospitalised and when Wei tried to help him get outside the hospital, Uncle Po makes him the local leader of the gang, Succeeding Winston. By seeing all these, police starts to doubt Wei as he is really getting mentally involved with Triad Gang. This brings some confusion and then game continues without any lag in story line.
