Having just spent 15 hard years doing time, Tommy Vercetti is no sooner released
than his old boss sends him to the hedonistic tropical paradise of Vice City to
carve out a slice of the narcotics pie for the family. But his first big job in
Vice City goes bad, leaving him penniless and out to get back his money and get
revenge. As a stranger in a strange land, you have to prove yourself, make
connections, and get your hands dirty in Vice City.
The newest Grand Theft Auto is a huge game in every sense of the word. A huge
living city lies before you, boasting an amazing degree of freedom and a wealth
of diverse gameplay options.
III. Getting Started
A. BEFORE YOU BEGIN
The eastern half of Vice City spreads out before you, from the scenic Ocean
Beach to the swanky Vice Point. But before you begin, there are a few things you
Keep multiple save files. If you really enjoy a mission, save on a different
slot when you complete it, and keep your last save for future enjoyment. There
are also other reasons you may want to keep multiple save files, which will be
addressed in the following points.
Never save or reset with a cheat activated. The only way to disable a cheat is
to load a previously saved game. If you get stuck with pink aggressive cars and
a riot where the pedestrians are all out for your blood, you may have problems
furthering your career.
When you're able to buy properties, do not save your game at the Cherry Popper
Ice Cream Factory. There's a reasonable chance that your saved game will be
permanently corrupted and will not load.
Play the game the way you want to. Feel free to play the game any way you want
to. Anything and everything is completely optional. If you simply want to finish
the story, complete the core missions and follow the additional instructions to
reach the finale.
GETTING AROUND IN THE '80s
MEANS OF TRANSPORTATION
Each vehicle has its own characteristics: speed, acceleration, handling, weight,
center of mass, braking ability, and so on. Helicopters and planes also have
unique characteristics. As you spend more time in the game, you'll learn which
vehicles you enjoy driving most, which are the most durable, and how to match
the right vehicle to the right mission. And remember, let other drivers know
what you think of them by pressing L3 (the left analog stick) to sound your
horn. Hit select to change the view in any vehicle.
Wherever you are, remember that you can check a detailed map simply by pausing
the game. You'll see roads, important places, and the exact locations of any
destinations or targets. It's a great feature that wasn't in the last Grand
Theft Auto, so use it well.
B. The Cops
One Star--In general, a one-star level is nothing to worry about. Police in the
immediate area will give chase to you, but you won't be fired on. If you're
beaten down and subdued or pulled out of your car, you'll be busted. Simply run
or drive around for a while, avoiding contact with the police, and your wanted
level will dissipate in no time.
Two Stars--At this point you've either killed an officer or several people, or
you've triggered a mission-specific condition. The police will dispatch squad
cars to chase you, and more will join in the chase if you encounter them. Police
behavior is a bit more aggressive, both in driving and on foot. Escape is still
relatively easy. Changing clothes, grabbing a police bribe icon to bring your
wanted level back to one, or using a nearby Pay 'n' Spray are simple and viable
Three Stars--Things are starting to heat up. You'll get a strong reaction from
the boys in brown, and undercover cops in the fast and agile Cheetah will join
the chase. Police may set up roadblocks, and you can definitely expect them to
shoot first and ask questions later. A helicopter may also join the chase.
Changing clothes can still help, but hitting a bribe before you do so would be
much more effective. The Pay 'n' Spray is a good option, and it shouldn't be too
hard to reach. Check your map for the closest location.
Four Stars--When the wanted level hits four stars, you know you're officially in
trouble. Swarms of patrol cars will pursue you doggedly, joined by the
undercover cops and the SWAT team. Expect a hail of gunfire from the air and
ground as helicopters and heavily armed law enforcement officers do their best
to bring you down. Anything less than the Pay 'n' Spray simply won't be enough.
Don't take chances here.
Five Star--The intensity you saw on level four increases with the presence of
the FBI, who pack MP5s that can take you down in no time. You won't be able to
round a corner without running into a law enforcement vehicle, and it will be a
real fight to make it to the Pay 'n' Spray.
Six Stars--You're the baddest man this city has ever seen, in a bad way. In
addition to everything that was thrown at you on the five-star level, military
vehicles like the Rhino tank and the massive Barracks OL's will come at you
hard. Hijack one of these vehicles if you can, but even still you'll be hard
pressed to clear your name. Luckily the Pay 'n' Spray can and will work
C. Getting Around
When you begin the game, Tommy is a bit out of shape. You'll be able to sprint
only short distances before needing to take a breather. However, if you can
stick to a rigorous exercise program, your endurance will improve and you'll be
running for blocks before fatigue kicks in. Remember to tap X instead of holding
it down. Jump by hitting the square button, and look behind you by pressing down
R3 (the right analog stick). Use the circle button to attack with your equipped
To get into a car, simply press the triangle button. If there's nobody inside,
you'll slip right in. If there's someone behind the door, you'll toss him out.
Very few vehicles in the game will be locked--manned police cars being the most
notable exception. You can only jack a vehicle that is stopped or moving slowly,
making stoplights a great place to snag a set of wheels. Blocking a car's path
with your body or another vehicle will usually stop traffic as well.
Violence is another alternative. Bashing on a van with a melee weapon or putting
a few bullets into a sedan will often cause drivers to vacate their vehicles,
although they may instead opt to speed away. Killing the driver is a surefire
option as well, but you should realize that any of these methods can attract
police attention if an officer is in the area.
Automobiles are the standard mode of transportation and the way you'll do most
of your getting around. There are amazing vehicles out there, but there are also
some real lemons. The most important thing to consider is which vehicles you're
comfortable driving. A Phoenix may be fast, but if you can't control the vehicle
at high speeds, then it's much less useful to you. You immediately have access
to the best cars; it's simply a matter of locating and stealing them. The
following are a few things to consider.
Drive aggressively but not recklessly. This only applies during missions,
since you're free to obey traffic laws or to slam into everything in sight when
you've got no reason to get somewhere fast. Reckless driving can ruin your
chances of completing a mission or winning a race. If you pull far ahead in a
race, drive carefully. One mistake is all it takes to blow your lead. Likewise,
you may never take the lead in the first place if you slam into a wall on the
Make an effort to familiarize yourself with different vehicles. If you do so,
not only will you learn which vehicles are best suited to different tasks, but
you'll also have less of a problem finding specific cars when and if you
purchase Sunshine Autos.
Hit the two-wheel motion. If you hit a ramp with one side of your car or pull
a sharp turn on a hill, you can set your car on two wheels. You'll get a bonus
and a record of stunt if you can maintain this for two seconds or more, though
there's no real practical usage.
Bail--Hit the triangle button when you're traveling at a decent speed, and
you'll bail out of the car, sustaining a small amount of damage. The car will
continue flying ahead until it hits something. If you're pushing 80mph in a
flaming car, this will be your best option.
Powerslide--To perform this technique, approach a turn at high speed, then slam
on the R1 button until the car skids, and then let up and floor the gas. You can
make drastic changes in direction this way, although it's hard to control.
Drive-by--L2 will let you look to your left, and R2 will let you look to the
right. You can fire from your window with a submachine gun while pressing either
of these buttons.
Taking a motorcycle is slightly different in that the method depends on your
relation to the bike. If you're directly in front of a bike and press triangle,
you'll leap onto the bike knocking off anyone who was previously using the
machine. If you're anywhere else, you'll need to perform a quick elbow that will
send the driver flying. Press triangle again to mount the bike. Just be wary
that it's easy for police to do the same to you, and you'll be busted with a
Bikes have a few distinct advantages over cars, but they also carry a few
substantial handicaps. With a good bike, you can weave in and out of traffic
with deft skill, zips down alleys that cars simply can't fit into, and even
perform wheelies and stoppies. The downside is that if you hit something while
on a bike, you'll go flying. Depending on the severity of your crash, you'll
lose armor and health. Here are a few pointers on bikes:
Not all bikes are created equal. There simply isn't as much variety in bikes
as there is in cars. The PCJ600 is definitely the cream of the crop. It's fast,
agile, and stylish. The Sanchez is fairly agile, hard to wreck, and good on dirt
or sand. The Faggio and Pizza Boy are scooters with medium stats, but they're
unable to perform tricks. Lastly, the Freeway and Angel are clunky bikes with a
high top speed but unresponsive handling.
Remember to use alleys and ramps. Bikes have a distinct advantage in being
able to fit through narrow passages and cut through alleys. This can give you an
edge over the police if you don't slam into something inadvertently.
Shifting your weight--Pushing up lightly on the analog stick will make you hug
the bike and will increase your speed, and pulling back will slow you down and
decrease your speed. Other tricks are possible through shifting your weight.
Wheelie--Pull back slightly on the left analog stick and accelerate. When your
wheel is off the ground, pump the gas to sustain the wheelie. Keep it up long
enough and you'll get a cash bonus and a record of your stunt. Wheelies can also
be used to launch your bike over walls
Stoppie--The opposite of a wheelie, shifting your weight forward to bring your
back wheel off the ground performs a stoppie. Simply press your brake (square)
and your emergency brake (R1) at the same time while holding up on the left
analog stick. You'll slide forward and can change the direction you're facing.
On a fast bike like the PCJ, you can reverse your direction and open fire on
your pursuers with a submachine gun.
Drive-by--This works just like it does in a car, except that you can also fire
ahead of you. Simply press circle to spray lead straight-ahead. You can check
behind you by pressing the L2 and R2 buttons simultaneously.
Rev up--This trick will allow you to get slightly quicker starts from a
standstill. Hit forward and reverse simultaneously, then let go of reverse.
You'll switch gears earlier than normal and thus pick up speed a bit faster.
Boats play a considerable role in Vice City, and at some point you'll find that
you need to take one. You'll find them parked at docks, and though you won't
usually want to steal another when you're out on open water, it is possible.
Jumping from one boat to another will often cause the panicked pilot to plunge
himself into the water out of fear, or you can simply target the pilot with a
weapon to take him out.
Sea vessels are simple to operate but difficult to operate with precision. Boats
with engines have forward and reverse, while those with sails can only move
forward. Unless you're pleasure boating, you'll want a nice speedboat. You'll
likely need to spend some time on the sea before you get the hang of things.
Here are a few tips for boating:
Go easy on the controls. Because all the power comes from the back of the
boat, steering is very sensitive. If you're rough with the controls you'll head
straight into a spin instead of a turn. Slow and slight adjustments are the key
Stand up and look around. Boats are unique in that when you hit triangle to
exit, you'll be standing on the deck of the boat. You can snipe targets on land
or sea in this manner or make use of your rocket launcher. Just make sure you
don't hit your own craft.
Drive-by--Like in a car, you can fire a submachine gun to the left or right
while holding the L2 or R2 button. You can check behind you by pressing the L2
and R2 buttons simultaneously.
Helicopters are the dominant mode of air transportation, and they can normally
be found on top of certain buildings. You won't have access to a plane until
much later in the game, after completing the Film Studio missions. There's no
way to steal another vehicle in midair, so you'll just have to keep looking on
Pilot a Helicopter
While in a helicopter use the X button to ascend and the square button to
descend. The left analog stick controls your tilt, and turning the body relative
to the blades is accomplished with the L2 and R2 buttons or the right analog
Drive-by--When in first-person view you can use the L2 and R2 buttons together
to look straight down. You can fire a submachine gun out of a helicopter with no
mounted guns, but only in cinematic view. Its effectiveness is minimal. The Sea
Sparrow can fire a machine gun when you press circle. The Hunter fires missiles
when you press circle and fires guns when you press R1.
Pilot a Plane
The Skimmer is the only flyable plane in the game. It must take off from the
water, since it has floats for landing gear. Gain speed by climbing and diving
alternately, making sure not to touch down in the water again. You'll lose
airspeed during turns, so be careful. Overall this vehicle is much less precise
than a helicopter.
Drive-by--If you must, you can fire a submachine gun out of your plane window.
The application is severely limited though.
D. Surviving in Vice City
If driving and piloting vehicles is at the heart of the game, the second major
component of Vice City would be maiming and killing. Many missions will require
you to eliminate a certain individual or group of individuals and Vice City can
be quite a dangerous place. Becoming adept at combat is one of the keys to
success in this town. The following points will outline the finer points of the
Learn to use the targeting system. With most weapons you'll press the R1
button to target the highest threat in any situation. This means that if you're
up against an unarmed man and a man with a handgun, pressing R1 will target the
man with the gun. Hitting the L2 and R2 buttons will target the next available
opponent in the respective direction. Releasing the R1 button after dropping a
target and pressing it again will target individuals in order of threat. Both
methods are useful. Also note that your accuracy is conveyed by the size of the
targeting circle. The smaller the better.
Learn to use manual aim. Certain weapons like the Ruger or PSG-1 sniper rifle
are aimed from a first-person perspective when the R1 button is pressed. There
are several uses for this function. You can target specific regions of a
target's body, cripple a car's speed and handling by shooting out the tires, or
even kill the driver of a vehicle while he's still behind the wheel. Drivers of
cars, boats, and even helicopters and tanks can be dispatched with one
well-placed shot. Use this to your advantage.
Crouch and take cover. Your character will crouch down when the L3 button is
pressed. This serves two important functions. First, it makes your character
harder to hit and steadies your aim. Second, it allows you to duck behind cover
such as a barrel, desk, or wall. This can be crucial to certain missions and is
invaluable for first person aiming.
Use elevation to your advantage and put a roof over your head. While this
applies first and foremost to battling the authorities, it's almost always to
your advantage to be at a greater height than your enemies. If you're inside a
building, your enemies will have to come into a confined area to get a clean
shot, and helicopters will be unable to get a bead on you.
Know when to run. After all, everybody runs. In many cases you'll find that
your speed can triumph over the poor accuracy of your enemies. If a mission
objective requires you to get somewhere fast, you may want to kill the foes
right in front of you and run to the safety of a vehicle. That brings us to our
Make use of vehicles. Unless your opponents are packing serious heat, you'll
often be able to soak up a lot of gunfire in a vehicle. Running anyone over with
the tires will kill them instantly, but simply hitting them won't always yield
the same result. Drive-bys are another valuable technique to utilize.
A. Ken Rosenburg (L)
1.'The Party'-This will be a combination of driving to the hotel and 'The
Party'. Hop into the Admiral and drive to the pink blip, or the Ocean View
Hotel. This be your safe house for now. Save you're game and walk into the pink
marker. Wait for the cinema to end (save if you want) and proceed to Ken
Rosenburg (L). Now for the first mission. Get some new clothes form Rafael's.
When you walk out from the store, you'll see a guy get off a Freeway. You don't
have to take the motorcycle, but if you do, you'll have a tutorial on how to use
a bike. Go to pink blip (PB from here on; YB-yellow blip), watch the cinema if
you want, then take Mercedes to the Pole Position Strip Club, which you can buy
you want your old clothes back, walk up the stairs, go straight, right, the left
at the end of the hallway, and pick up the clothes icon. Reward-$100
2. 'Back Alley Brawl'-This is an easy mission. Just drive to "The Malibu" and
talk Kent Paul. He will tell you to go see Leo the Chef. Take a car/mo-ped to
the YB. Beat up or run over the chef and take his cell phone. Now you can press
and receive calls! Lance arrives and gives you a free gun. More chefs will
arrive try to kill you with Knives (a melee weapon which you can acquire later).
You don't have to kill the chefs. Just run to Lance's sweet ass Infernus and
drive to Ammu-Nation. You'll learn about guns and how to buy them. Now drive
back to the hotel. Reward-$200
3. 'Jury Fury'-This is really stupid! How reckless can you be to run someone
over isn't even in the road? Anyway, take his hammer and go to the southern YB.
Swap out your hammer (if you haven't already) and give the guy ONE good hit.
When the truck hits him, walk over to his car and smash the hell out of it. Get
in a car and go to the other yellow dot. Drive up the ramp, ram his car with
yours, get out, and wreck his car with the hammer. Reward-$400
4. 'Riot'-You'll have to get some hillbilly clothes from Rafael's (clothes blip,
not pink). You'll have to cross a short bridge to get to this one. When you get
close, you'll see a large group of people with their arms in the air. You can
either run them over with your car or hit three people. I prefer to run them
over! :) (Beware: If you do, drive into a corner so they can't pull you out and
start to beat you up) Shoot the cop on the other side of the gate and take his
ammo. Shoot the barrel next to the two vans. The other barrel is to far away to
reach the van. You'll have to switch to the hammer and smash the van. Yes, I
have tried to move the barrel. It just falls into the ground and disappears.
Reward: $1,000 (If people are still fighting, kill them and take the things that
B. Avery Carrington (A)
1. 'Four Iron'-Avery pulls up in a limo and tell you to kill someone at a golf
course. You'll first have to pick up some new threads from Jocksport (run if you
need the exercise). Now go to the Leaf Links Golf Club. Walk through the metal
detector and leave your gun behind. :( Turn right and pick up the golf club.
Grab the Caddy and ride over to the driving range. Park and RUN up the LEFT
RAMP. If you're lucky, you can get him before he gets in a Caddy. If not, grab
one and chase him. I got lucky while chasing him and rammed him into the water.
If you can't, just keep ramming him. He might even get out and you'll have a
high-speed chase. Reward-$500
2. 'Demolition Man'-This mission can be hard if you can't fly the helicopter.
Firstly, run to the TOPFUN van. Then pick up a bomb with the heli (see
Controls).The first drop-point is just north of the steps. Go back to get
another bomb, then go to the top floor. Turn right, right again, and go between
two walls to find the drop point. Go back down for a bomb, up two floors, right
and between two more walls for the 3rd point. Go back for the last bomb, up one
floor, right, drop, and BOOM!! Mission passed. Reward-$1,000
C. Colonel Cortez (C)
1. 'Treacherous Swine'-CHAINSAW!! Cortez gives you a chainsaw to kill Gonzalez
with. Put it away for now because you can't sprint with it. When you arrive at
Gonzalez' house, which is behind "The Malibu", he'll run away from you. Just
sprint and whip out the blade before you get to him. If he runs and you can't
catch him, just wait for the cinema to end and kill him there. Now for the hard
part. After you kill him, you'll have a two-star wanted level. So steal a car
and cruise over to the local Pay 'N' Spray. It usually costs $100, but this
time, it's free. Reward-$250
2. 'Mall Shootout'-If you need any guns before this mission (you will), go to
Ammu-Nation right next to Cortez. The only things that they are selling are Colt
45 (pistol), Ingram MAC 10 (sub-machine gun), and body armor. When you arrive at
the mall, park and walk inside. Get on the right escalator and wait for it to
lift you up. You'll see a man at the top. DON'T SHOOT HIM! Walk up to him
and...AHHH!!! Snipers on the roof! Run down after him. You can either get the
PCJ 600 or walk out into the street and look for a car (do that one). When he
dies, grab the chips (I had to move a car). Now you'll have another two-star
wanted level. Take them back to the Colonel. Your wanted level will disappear.
3. 'Guardian Angels'- Get the Ruger (awesome gun) from the car garage and wait
for Lance to appear. Drive him to the deal. Go to the top of the building and
wait for the Haitians (purple). They first come from the direction that Diaz is
facing. Another wave comes that way, and another from behind. You don't have to
snipe, but it's easier. After you kill them, all jump down and get on the
Sanchez (dirtbike). Chase that monkey down and when you get close enough, press
Up and Circle to shoot forward and knock him off. (Beware: The Sanchez is
terrible at turning, even when you use the handbrake. So remember to slow down
before turning) Pick up the money and bring it back to Diaz. Reward-$1,000
D. Ricardo Diaz (D)
1. 'The Chase'-Remember to get body armor before this mission. Park your car in
the PB. Get out, walk up the steps, and look into the window. When you turn
around, DO NOT SPRINT UP THE STEPS! Save your sprint and walk up. He'll shoot at
you and miss. Now sprint after him. Look for the boards connecting the roof-tops
together. Jog between the embers, hop down and grab the mo-ped. Follow him onto
Prawn Island. Note-To avoid gunshots, stay behind cars or ride on the sidewalk.
2. 'Phnom Penh 86'-Lance (Quenton) Vance pilots a helicopter while you have to
shoot people from it to get some money. The first set of gunners are on a roof.
Aim for the red barrels and then AROUND the people. Lance moves around, so you
can never shoot where you want. The next set is in a balcony. Aim for the
upper-left corner. Three guys should come out. You should be able to get them
all at once. After that is a pool area. Aim for the vehicles and barrels. Next
is a roof area.
Again, aim for the red barrels. Next is another balcony. You should be able to
get 2 or 3 before they even shoot at you. The last three are tough. Just
moveyour gun slowly back and forth. You should get them. When Lance drops you
off, run inside and get all the people. Walk up the steps and look right. Go
through the hole in the wall and kill the guy on the steps. Go onto the roof and
collect the money. Reward-$2,000
3. 'The Fastest Boat'-Get over to the boat docks (left to the entrance/exit of
Diaz' estate). Take a Securicar (gray/blue van) and drive onto the docks. The
bullets don't hurt you because the Securicar is bullet-proof! Turn left into the
garage type thing, get out, flip the switch, and run like hell to the right of
the boat.Press Triangle and get into the boat. Now it's just an easy cruise over
to Diaz. Reward-$4,000
4. 'Supply and Demand'-The first half of this mission is a race. The second half
is like the Phnom Penh mission. Once you're in the boat, go straight and turn
left. Starfish Island should be on your left. This way is easier because it's
not as curvy. Once you arrive at the yacht, you'll have to shoot the boats. The
first two come from behind. Aim AROUND them. Once they're gone, people will
shoot at you from a dock on the right. Next is a heli. It can't go under the
bridge. The last boat is ahead of you. If you can't get him, Lance will run
E. Colonel Cortez II
1. 'Sir, Yes Sir!'-This is a very easy mission. Plus, you'll get free body armor
andyour health will be restored. Just get in a car, drive over to the tank, and
park in front of the tank. When the tank operator gets out, exit your car and
get in the tank. The tank blows up any car that it touches. Drive down the road
and park in the garage. Reward-$2,000
F. Avery Carrington II
1. 'Two Bit Hit'-Get yourself some Cuban clothes and a durable car(like a
Hermes).When the guy gets in his car, chase it. Don't stay right behind it
because the caskets it drops will make your car catch on fire. Instead, ram it
from the side and do drive-by's. Reward-$2,500
G. Kent Paul
1. 'Death Row'-You have to save Lance at City Scrap. This is the fastest way
Go north from "The Malibu". Turn at the STRAIGHT left turn. The Leaf Links Golf
Club should be on your right. Continue to the end of the bridge. Go around the
loop and go up, left, and right. When you get to the end of the road, floor it!
Hit the car in the back, then drive right. You should see a garage type thing.
By now, your car should be on fire. Get out and go behind the garage for
protection. Get out your sub-machine gun and slowly walk out, killing all the
people that you can. Turn right and shoot those two people. Walk inside the
garage and shoot that guy. Collect the money/ammo and jog over to Lance. Kill
any remaining people and get into the Trashmaster (garbage truck). If it isn't
there, you'll have to start over because you need it! Leave the scrap yard and
just drive to the hospital, like the cars aren't even there. Reward-None
H. Colonel Cortez III
1. 'All Hands On Deck'-Cortez is leaving and you have to defend him from the
French. The first set of gunmen arrive behind you as soon as you leave the dock.
Just shoot them and continue. You'll arrive at an underpass which is blocked by
blockade of boats. Kill the people around your boat and watch out for
helicopters. When you get hurt, get the free health and Ruger ammo. After you
have decimated all the enemies, aim for the sailboat and blow it up.
I. Ricardo Diaz II
1. 'Rub Out'-This is your chance to finally kill Diaz for what he did to Lance.
First off, meet Lance outside Diaz' estate. He'll give a kick ass gun. Go
through the bushes and kill the first two guys you see. Walk up the stairs on
the right. Kill all the people that you see. When the building ends and turns a
corner, go down the steps. Turn right and you should see an indoor pool. Walk on
the right side and then turn right. Walk up the long staircase, shooting the
gunners, until the triangle turns into a square. Exit the staircase. You should
continue along into a large room. Shoot the people. Follow Diaz into his
'office'. Get out your fastest shooting gun. Walk in and shoot Diaz until he
dies. Watch the last cinema cuz it's cool. Reward-$50,000 and..... Diaz' estate!
J. Vercetti Estate (V)
1. 'Shakedown'-The hardest part of this mission is escaping the cops. The first
place you'll want to take out is the whole lower level of the North Point Mall.
Use your melee weapon to shatter all the window panes. Remember that every time
that you get a two-star wanted level, go to Gash's and change your clothes.
Break the windows while you're there. Reward-$2,000
2. 'Bar Brawl'-Get in the Sentinel or Infernus and drive over to the Front Page
Bar. Run over(it's the easiest way) the two bodyguards. Walk out and walk into
the PB. The bar owner tells you to head north to DBP Security. Take out the
gunners and get ready to chase two guys on motorcycles. Jump in your car and
pursue them. Run them off their bikes and shoot or run them over. Reward-$4,000
3. 'Cop Land'- In this mission, you have to go to the North Point Mall and blow
up the coffee shop. But first you'll need to get some cop uniforms. The easiest
way to get a wanted level is to try to jack a cop car. When he gets out, shoot
him. You will get a two-star wanted level. Get the car and drive into the
garage. When the two cops come in, the door will close and you get their
uniforms. Sometimes the police park their cars right where the door closes, so
either move them or start over. If you can't find a police car or it doesn't
stay in the garage with you(which sometimes happens), there's one right beside
the garage. Drive to the North Point Mall and park you car with the front facing
the road. Walk inside, enter the Tarbrush Cafe, and walk into the PB. You have
five seconds to get out of the cafe(almost enough to get out of the mall). Get
in your car and do a 180 as soon as you get on the road. Pick up the police
bribe. Now you'll only have 4 stars! :) Travel south to the pizza place and look
between a bush and a tree for another bribe. Now it should be easy to return to
Vercetti Estates. Reward-Vercetti Estates makes $5,000 regularly, $10,000, can
buy all properties.
K. Haitians (Dead Body)
1. 'Juju Scramble'-(Must finish 'Stunt Boat Challenge' with Cubans before this
mission is unlocked) Drive over to the ramp and make your car face east. Walk up
and collect the briefcase and RUN to your car. Hurry to the second briefcase at
the corner of a road. Now go to the third. Get it and go through an alley with a
jump and then a police bribe. Now get back to Auntie Poulet's as fast as you
can. Remember to use alleys. Reward-$1,000
2. 'Bombs Away'-Get to the TOPFUN van with the remote control planes. Fly over
to the docks and try to take out the boats first. If you don't, they'll cruise
away. When you blow them up, one of the Cubans will try to escape in a Cuban
Hermes. He is easy to take out. Just get behind him and drop a bomb.
3. 'Dirty Lickins'-Go behind the building(get the Adrenaline Pill...it helps)
and walk up the stairs. Head over to the PB. Get out the sniper rifle that
Auntie Poulet gave you and zoom in about 3/4 of the way. Start to shoot the
Cubans from the right and work you're way to the left. Sooner or later, another
group of Cubans will come in a van. Shoot them and then another group will
arrive. Kill the guys will the Katanas first, and then the others. Reward-$5,000
L. Cubans (Blue Circle)
1. 'Stunt Boat Challenge'-You have to prove that you have big 'cojones' by
driving a boat through 26 checkpoints in 3 minutes. This mission could take a
few tries depending on your boat driving ability. Just remember to slow down
before sharp turns. Reward-$1,000
2. 'Cannon Fodder'-I could do this mission in my sleep. At first I thought it
was impossible, but then I learned the secret. Get a car that can hold 4 people
and head over to the fight. Get out a gun with a lot of ammo and shoot at the
car blocking the way. This should take out about 4 or 5 Haitians. Go forward and
kill the remaining Haitians. A sniper will shoot the heads off the Cubans that
advance. If you don't have a long range gun, get the one that appears because it
is better than the sniper rifle, even though it only has 6 bullets. Walk up the
stairs, jump across the buildings, and shoot the sniper. Jump back across the
buildings and down the stairs. Shoot the other Haitians. Now this is the part
that I thought was impossible. When Rico and the other Cubans advance, get out
your shotgun and pop a few Haitians. Get in the van and run over the group that
runs toward you. Then head back to the cafe. Reward-$2,000
3. 'Naval Engagement'-Get on the interstate and drive over to Rico. Get out your
shotgun/Uzi and blow all the Haitians to hell. Get off the boat and shoot all
the gunners. Watch out for the guy on the roof. Collect the briefcases and watch
out for the guys that blew up Rico's boat. Head to the right of the house(be
careful of the guy with the shotgun. It's powerful) and walk into the road. TRY
TO FIND A CAR! I couldn't and had to run all the way back to Umbeurto.
4. 'Trojan Voodoo'-Head north and get a Voodoo, a red car with a white stripe on
the side. An easy way to get one is to head over to Auntie Poulet's and grab the
Voodoo in front of her house. Drive over to where the other two Voodoos are,
then follow them into the drug factory. Park in the PB and proceed to enter the
compound. Kill the first guy on the right, enter, and kill the remaining
Haitians. Walk up the stairs and into the first blip. Go down the stairs turn
right and set a bomb at the second blip. Head toward the exit and place a bomb
on the last blip. Walk out of the facility. You should have about 20 seconds
left, enough time to get clear of the drug factory. Reward-$10,000
M. The Greasy Chopper (must finish 'Love Juice' before you can take missions for
the Bikers.) (Spade)
1. 'Alloy Wheel's Of Steel'-Get on one of the Angel's outside of the Greasy
Chopper. Drive over to the PB and get ready for a good ol' fashioned hog race!
Wait for the
2. 'Messing With The Man'-Before this mission, line up about 4 or 5 cars outside
the Biker Emporium. When you walk out, throw a grenade in the middle. Later, the
cops will arrive. Shoot them and there cars. Finally, a chopper will come and
shoot you. There is some body armor around the back of The Greasy Chopper. When
the Chaosmeter is filled, go to the Skumole Shack and save! Your wanted level
will not go down. Reward-$2,000
3. 'Hog Tied'-Some gang has stole Mitch Baker's Angel, and you have to get it
back if you want security for Love Fist. Get on another bike cuz you'll need it
to get to the back of Ammu-Nation. Go to the PB, which is a set of stairs. Go
pretty far and launch of the staircase. You'll get $100 for the unique stunt.
Get off your bike and kill the guy running across the rooftop. If you don't
he'll pull an alarm and gang members will flood the area. Head down the stairs
(or jump down with your bike) and kill all the people. Get the bike from the
garage and find another white staircase that leads to the road. As soon as you
land, vans will fly at you. Just try not to get your tires blown out and you'll
be okay. Reward-$4,000
N. Love Fist (Skull)
1. 'Love Juice'-Get a fast car and drive over to the blip. Make your car face
the road. Chase the dealer down and run him over with his car. DO NOT GET OUT OF
YOUR CAR! He has a very powerful shotgun. Kill him and take his drugs/money.
You'll get a call saying that Love Fist want some 'company'. Go to Hyman Condo
(buy it if you haven't already) and get in the helicopter on the roof. Fly over
to Mercedes' apartment. Pick her up in the heli. Now you have 1:30 to get
Mercedes back to Love Fist before they go an stage. Fly back over to the
recording studio. Park in the road if you can't fit it anywhere else.
2.'Psycho Killer'-Get in the Love Fist Limo and drive to the PB. Watch the cross
dresser shoot the police officer. He'll get in his car and speed away. The
Manana/Sentinel has better acceleration than yours, but he can't turn for crap.
When you catch up to him, do drive-by's and try to pop his tires. Just don't
lose sight of him because he doesn't show up on your radar. Reward-$4,000
3. 'Publicity Tour'- (Must finish Biker missions before this mission is
unlocked). It turns out that the killer still isn't dead. He has planted a bomb
in the Love Fist Limo and has set it to blow up if you slow down, just like the
movie Speed. Get in the limo, turn around, and find a place where there is no
traffic. The stadium is a perfect place. I had to drive around it about 2 or 3
O. Final Missions (Print Works and Vercetti Estates)
1. 'Cap The Collector'-Mr. Kelly calls and tells you to come to the Print Works
immediately. When you get there, you find that he has been beaten up and wants
you to get revenge for him. He tells you that Sonny Forelli is in town and has
come to tax your businesses! Get in a fast car and head to the first capper. He
will try to get to Sunshine Autos, but you should be able to stop him before he
gets there. Once he is dead, head north to take out the others. This time, they
try to take Cherry Popper's. Kill him and another capper will arrive in the same
place. Kill him. Reward-$30,000
2. 'Keep Your Friends Close...'-Lance calls and tells you to head over to the
mansion. Once you arrive, Kent Paul tells you that Sonny is arriving and wants
$20 mil. Tommy uses the fake money that they print. Once Sonny arrives, Lance
turns on you! Ah, it's so sad. Anyway, switch out either your shotgun/Uzi. The
best place to defend the money is the top of the staircase right in front of the
office. By the way, there is a Colt Python in there. Shoot all the guys that try
to steal your money. Sooner or later, Lance arrives. Chase him, pressing R1 to
aim at him around every corner. Once you are on the roof, shoot the guys closest
to you. Then duck down behind the barrels and shoot the guys on the right. Once
they are dead, wait until Lance reloads and pop Lance a few times. You might
have to go downstairs to get health/armor. Once he is dead, head back downstairs
and in front of the office. Sonny gets out his gun and tries to kill you. Head
up the staircase and down a flight. Head out of the doorway, using the big
pillar as a shield. Pop out and shoot Sonny until he dies. When you run out of
ammo, he will shoot you until you die/run out of ammo, but when you shoot him,
he can't shoot! Congratulations! You are in control of Vice City! Reward-$50,000
P. Phil Cassidy (P)
1. 'Gun Runner'-Get in a fast car for this mission. Leave Phil's Place and head
north to the YB. Take out him first because they Uzi he has sucks! Bump the
trucks until the guns fall out and pick them up. Then head south to the other
guy. Bump his truck and then get the guns again. Now destroy all the
2. 'Boomshine Saigon'-Phil got his arm blown off in the Boomshine explosion and
you have to take him the hospital. Unfortunately, you are drunk and can't see
very well. The trick is not to turn to sharp. You should arrive rather quickly,
but Phil says that there are too many cops around. So drive him to his friends
house. Now you should be able to better. Just remember that when you pass a cop,
you will get a wanted level for drunk driving. Reward-$4,000. Congratulations!
You have beaten all the main missions!
V. Telephone Missions/Property Missions
A. Telephone Missions
1. 'Road Kill'-Get a fast car (Banshee, Infernus, Cheetah, etc) before this
mission. You have to chase down a pizza guy. Follow the YB around and run in to
him. He'll fall off his Pizza Boy (the name of the Mo-Ped). From here, you can
either run him over or beat him up. Reward-$500
2. 'Waste The Wife'-We're gonna do a few things before this mission, shut down a
business and collect a hidden package, which I will describe later. From the
phone (north should be on the right), go straight and turn right. Walk into the
Jewelry Store and collect the hidden package. Then pull out a gun and wait until
you have enough wanted stars to make you feel uncomfortable. Shoot him, collect
the money, then get as fast as you can to the nearest safehouse. Save, load, and
come back to the phone. You should get a fast car before this mission. There's
not really a strategy for this mission. Just keep ramming her from behind. When
her car catches fire, turn around and floor it! (I have tried to block the
roads. The cars disappear.) Reward-$2000
3. 'Autocide'-If you don't have a sniper rifle, then go to the blue dot and get
it. If you do, just go straight and right. Switch out your rifle and shoot him.
When you arrive at the next YB, get in the alley in front of it. Walk up the
stairs on the right and shoot him IN THE HEAD. If you try to shoot him anywhere
else, he'll zoom away. Next is someone in a truck and someone else with a very
powerful shotgun. Get at the intersection left of them. Shoot the guy in the
(in the head) and then go over and get the other one. Next go to Washington
Beach. Go off-rod just as you get off the bridge. Stand back and shoot him. The
final guy is on a PCG 600. Get a fast car and run him down. Reward-$2,000
4. 'Check Out At The Check In'-Head over to the main terminal. As soon as you
walk through the metal detector, you will lose of your weapons. Walk over to the
telephone and listen CAREFULLY to what the guy tells you. Get the sniper rifle
and walk forward a little bit. Wait until the lady walks away and shoot the guy
in the front. Get his briefcase and walk out of the terminal. Collect your

car.Enter the compound, watching out for snipers. Head up the stairs that you
first saw when you walked in a snipe all the guys that you can find. When all
the dudes are dead, go right and walk up the stairs. Shoot the guy and pick up
the health if you need it. There is also body armor around somewhere.... Jump
over to roof, watching out for gunners. Head up the stairs and head left of the
thingy jutting up out of the roof. Get out your shotgun and kill all 4 guys. Get
in the Maverick and head to the airport. Reward-$16,000
B. Property Missions
1. The Malibu (Cost to buy-$120,000)
a. 'No Escape?'-Get a fast car and park it outside of the police station. As you
enter VCPD HQ, turn left through the door and walk into the PB. You'll enter the
locker room and change into a cop uniform. Now you can walk around the station
freely! Walk upstairs and get the key card needed to unlock the cells. Head
downstairs and walk into the PB. You'll give Cam Jones a gun. Head up the stairs
and shoot the cop. Go up the other stairs and run outside. Shoot a few cops and
hop into your car. Drive as fast as you can to the PB, which is Pay 'N' Spray.
Then take Cam back to his house. Reward-$1,000
b. 'The Shootist'-Drive to the Rifle Range in Downtown (its inside an
Ammu-nation). When the mission starts, aim for the back target as much as
possible, trying not to miss any shots. After that move onto the next section,
trying to hit as many targets as you can. If you are good number below 60, the
start over because the next section is very hard. Just try to hit targets.
c. 'The Driver'-This is by far the most f*cked up mission in the game! I had to
try it about 50 times. But I finally found a strategy that worked. TRY NOT TO
GET RAN OFF THE ROAD! This is the best one that I could come up with. But once
you get near Ken Rosenburg's office, two cop cars come screaming down the road.
Hopefully Hilary is in front and his Sabre should get schooled! Now it's just an
easy ride back to The Malibu. Reward-$4,000
d. 'The Job'-Get in the Taxi outside and drive to the PB. Exit the Taxi and walk
to the other PB. This will make you put on scary costumes. Got Jason? Walk into
the bank and head up the stairs to the right of the wall the people are standing
against, killing anyone that gets in your way. You may notice some body armor.
Save it for later. Head up the next staircase, watching out for guards with
extremely powerful MP5s. Walk into the elevator and then into the safe area.
Next head back down stairs to find the manager. He is in an office behind a
table. Go back up stairs, and the go check on Phil. When you get off the
elevator, he will shout at you saying that someone has pulled the alarm. Go
downstairs and go to the PB behind the table. When you can walk again, head back
up to the balcony. This has a better vantage-point than that gay table! Once all
the agents are dead, head back outside. Get in the Taxi that Hilary left and
head to the Pay 'N' Spray. Then go to Cam's house. . Reward-$50,000, 'The
Malibu' generates $10,000 regularly.
2. Print Works (Cost to buy-$70,000)
a. 'Spilling The Beans'-Mr. Kelly needs some money plates to print the fake
money. Head over to Kent Paul at 'The Malibu'. He'll tell you to go to the docks
and talk to the boatmaster. Get the body armor across the street if you need it.
Walk up the ramp. Make sure to have an Uzi that shoots while you run. When you
get to the top of the ramp, turn left and walk up the stairs at the end of the
boat. The important thing to remember here is KEEP MOVING! When you get the
information, get back to the Print Works fast cuz the cops will be on you.
b. 'Hit The Courier'-You have to go get the plates from the plate carrier. Drive
over to the docks, making the ocean on your left. Do not go the way where people
shoot at you. When the courier gets out of the heli, shoot her and take the
plates. Now just hop in one of the cars that are in the way and make an easy
route bake to the Print Works. Reward-$5,000
3. Interglobal Films (Cost to buy $60,000)
a. 'Recruitment Drive'-You have to recruit some 'stars' for your new movie.
Drive near the PB and get out your car. Walk into the PB. Candy Suxxx pulls up
in a limousine with Alex Shrub in it. After you talk to her, the lawyer will
pull up. You'll have to chase him down. He drops out gang members every once in
a while, so be careful. They try to shoot out you tires. Once you kill him, go
back and pick up Candy. After that, go get Mercedes at Well-Stacked Pizza.
b. 'Dildo Dodo'-You have to pass out flyers for your movie. Get to the Skimmer
at the dock. You should start at the northern most checkpoint When you go
through it, a red one will appear. You'll have to fly through it. If you do this
right, you'll make a circle!. I have found out to stay low and get height when
you're getting to low. After this mission, the Skimmer can now be used any time.
c. 'Martha's Mug Shot'-You have to take some blackmail pictures of Candy with
Congressman Shrub. Get in the Sparrow (which I like more than the Maverick) and
follow Candy's Stretch to the hotel. Park the heli anywhere but the down-slope
thing. If you do, the blades will scrape the top of the grass. Head left of the
hotel and go through the door. Go up 8 flights of stairs (yes, I counted! I was
bored!) And turn right to a balcony. Get out the camera and zoom in. The sad
thing is that it can zoom more any of the sniper rifles! Pop three shots of them
and get the f*ck out of there! You will have a five-star wanted level. There
will be cops on the stairs as you walk down. They have very powerful guns. Shoot
them and get in your helicopter. Head back to the Porn Studio as fast as you
E-mail from Kevin Ochall:
Take the sparrow and follow the limo, when you get to the building in front of
Shrub's rooftop, you will see a little ledge sticking out from the building.
Land on that, the ledge is high enough too take the pics. from and that way you
are only a few feet away from the chopper and you don't have to deal with the
guys in the stairwell. Then just avoid the police chopper and fly back to the
d. 'G-spotlight'-You need to pull a big stunt to promote your adult movie. Get
the PCJ 600 and ride over to the PB. Try not to hit anything on your way over
cuz you'll need as much vehicle health that you can get. Once you arrive, drive
up the stairs and into the elevator. I wonder what that lady is thinking? "What
a nice ride!" Once you get out, you can either shoot the guy blocking the way or
just ride by him. Get a lot of speed before this jump and try to land as flat as
possible. From this jump, go to the next one and so on. Just try not to
over-shoot the landings. On some jumps, you'll have to get more speed and on
others you won't. After going halfway, a set of stairs will drop, allowing you
to get back up if you fall off one of the buildings. Once you arrive at the
spotlight, Tommy shines it toward a building and puts in his own cartridge
thing. Hmmm...look kinda good, don't they? Reward-$8,000, Interglobal Films
generates a regular $7,000
E-mail from jrain401:
After you get the checkpoints in the first building you enter, you can use a
helicopter to go through the others. This makes the mission go a lot faster.
3. Kaufman Cabs (Cost to buy-$40,000)
a. 'VIP'-Get in the cab and head south. Get on the interstate and go over the
bridge to Starfish Island. Make your cab face the Cherry Popper Ice Cream
Factory, park in the PB, and honk your horn. A VC Cab will pull up, getting the
VIP. Run into him and do drive-by shootings to make her get out. When she gets
out, take her to the airport. Reward-$1,000
b. 'Friendly Rivalry'-VC Cabs are taking all your fares, so you have to take out
three of their taxis. They are marked as Yellow Blips on the map. Just follow
them around and blow them up. Reward-$2,000
c. 'Cabmageddon'-Go meet Mercedes Cortez at the Vice City Docks. Honk your
horn...and nothing happens. Suddenly 6 (yes SIX!) Vice City cabs pull up.
They'll try to ram you into the sea. Just drive around the borders, trying not
to get to close to the ocean. After 60 seconds, the leader of the cabs, the
Zebra Taxi, will appear. This is the coolest looking vehicle I have ever seen!
Now you can either try to push over the edge into the ocean or ram it or shoot
at him. Reward-$5,000, Kaufman Cabs generates $6,000
E-mail for AlanStory:
Avoid the 6 cabs as usual by driving around the outside of the parking lot (only
requires very gentle braking) and although the cabs get close behind you on the
turns they don't actually hit you. Once the Zebra Taxi appears, wait until the
car is starting to ram you and jump out, then simply nick the zebra cab for
yourself, quickly drive a
little way off so that the driver can't jump back in and steal it back, turn
round and run him over.
4. Sunshine Autos
a. List One-
5. Cherry Popper's Ice Cream
a. 'Distribution'-This is the only mission for the Ice Cream Company. To get
people to buy ice cream, turn on the jingle by quickly tapping L3. Stop near a
large group of people for best results. I've found the docks on the second
island the best place to sell. There are a lot of people around and it's near a
Pay 'N' Spray. To complete this mission, you have to sell 50 ice creams in a
row. Just watch out for cops! Reward-$1,000, Cherry Popper's generates $3,000
6. The Boatyard
a. 'Checkpoint Charlie'-
VI. Extras-These are needed to get 100%.
A. Robberies-There are stores that you can rob, which are needed to complete the
game, but the following are the ones that are necessary to complete the game. To
rob a store, simply aim a gun (preferably one that can kill/knock down in one

first island. Get into the Top Fun van and the race will start. To win, you have
to go through all the checkpoints AND finish first.
2. RC Plane-This is found at the top of the Washington Mall. Go up the escalator
to the second floor and walk around the edge until you see an opening leading

objectives as the RC Car. This race ends around Ocean View Hotel. Reward-$100

the runway that goes southwest. You should come to a gate that says something
like Southwest Shipping or something like that. Go through the gate and get into
the Top Fun van. A helicopter will start to spin. To complete this mission, you
have to fly through a series of 20 checkpoints. Beware: This RC Heli is
EXTREMELY difficult to pilot. Go forward too far, do a front flip. Pull back too
far, and do a back flip. Turn side-ways too far, do a barrel roll. So just try
to not get mad (easier said than done) and get all the checkpoints.
C. Hidden Packages-There is 100 hidden packages in GTA: Vice City. Some are
easy to find others are very difficult.
#1 -Under the Southern Bridge, go in the hospital parking lot and jump on the
walkway and you'll find it under the bridge.
#2 -Go south from where you got #1, it is on the ledge behind the Ocean View
#3 -Go south from #2 inside Colonel Cortez's parking lot (across from the yacht)
and you can find #3 in one of the corners in the parking lot.
#4 -South from Cortez's yacht is a house, go in the backyard (facing the water)
and find #4 next to the steps.
#5 -On the southeastern part of the island is a lighthouse, go there and you'll
find #5 on the steps outside of the lighthouse.
#6 -This one is on the rocks near the hut in the south in the water. You would
probably want to grab a Dinghy and drive over there.
#7 -This one is also off the water, it is in the partial-broken hut in the water
(where one of the rampages take place)
#8 -You will probably need a helicopter for this one because it is on the roof
across the street to the east of the Washington Mall.
#9 -Do you know where the Washington Park Mall is? the one with the spiraling
ramp? There is a pink building nearby, and behind that building is a pool, find
the 9th hidden package next to the Body Armor.
#10 -Look behind one of your hideouts near Ken Rosenberg's place, its on the
walkway around the house.
#11 -North from #11 is a small bridge, look on the right side of it and you'll
#12 -Go north across the bridge a little bit until you see Bunch of Tools, to
the west of that is a compound area. Go up the steps and look to the left,
you'll see a fancy looking pink house; the 12th package is hidden on the south
#13 -East from #12 is a shower house, the 13th package can be found inside.
#14 -This one is tucked underneath the bridge to Starfish Island, go to the
construction place to the north and then go to the very back (towards west) and
then go underneath the bridge to find it.
#15 -Remember where the "Riot" mission take place? In the Spand Express
compound? Take the small alley around that building and you'll find #15.
#16 -Go across the bridge to the east and then go inside the Vice City Police
Department, you might want to put on the cop clothes (unlocked after you beat
Cop Land). Then go upstairs, it is in the office where you got the keycard in
the "No Escape?" mission.
#17 -Go out on the beach to the east of the border line between Washington Beach
and Vice Point, there is a lone lifeguard hut on the beach, hidden package #17
is on the steps.
#18 -You will need a helicopter for this one and fly to the top of the tall blue
and white building behind the police station (or south) and you'll find #18 up
#19 -This place is really tough to locate, and you'll probably need a helicopter
for this. Look on the easternmost street in Washington Beach for a Hermes or a
spawned car (not the one in front of the Ocean View Hotel), it is a little bit
to the west of that on the top of the building.
#20 -In the golf course, on the west side is a path shaped of an "S" and at the
end of the path is a bunker, find the 20th package in there.
#21 -To the north of where #20 was is a driving range, the 21st package can
be found in one of the

G. Rampages-Remember before doing a rampage to have the weapon slot that the
weapon you use is in. If not, you will lose that weapon! So make sure to read
this before you pick up the Rampage!!
1. Kill 30 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with Molotov Cocktails
Location - From the Ocean View Hotel, head south. Keep an eye out on the left
side for a driveway leading towards the lighthouse. Go down that driveway, and
the rampage should be near some bushes. Molotov Cocktail rampages are tricky,
because you can easily set yourself on fire. The best thing to do for this
rampage is to keep your distance. Throw the molotovs at packs of gangs, and
throw it further by holding circle down longer. If the gang members come after
you, run away so you have enough distance to throw a molotov at them. If it
looks like you threw it too close, quickly hit square and jump away before it
explodes. For this rampage, if you get it in location one, try going up the
steps on the lighthouse and throwing it from there. It makes it safer for you.
2. Runover and Kill 30 Gang Members in 2 Minutes
Location - Head down to Ocean Beach. Right before that bay of water between the
main beach and the lighthouse area is the Rampage icon, down by the shore. Get a
car before you pick this one up. You don't want to waste any time walking back
to the sidewalk area. Drive down, pick up the icon, and quickly drive to the
sidewalks by the beginning of the beach. Get some good speed, and run over all
of the gang members that appear on the sidewalks. If you are having trouble
finding them, try looking backwards and then forwards again. A BF Injection
works great for this rampage, because you can also run over the gang members on
the beach. You need a lot of speed for it to count as a kill. Just because you
run over the guy doesn't mean he is dead, so run over them quickly. Go for the
large groups, and don't slow down so they can pull you out of your car. Good
3. Destroy 10 Vehicles in 2 Minutes with the Rocket Launcher
Location - On a hut in the water. You'll need either a helicopter or a boat to
get to this one. Try a boat first, and if you think it is too hard using a boat,
you can use a helicopter to make it easier. These directions are for the boat.
First, go down to the docks, where you did the Cortez missions. Go to the second
gate, since the first one was locked. Grab any boat, and drive out of the dock
area. As soon as you exit the dock area, head south. You should soon see some
huts ahead. The rampage is on the only one of the three that isn't completed. It
looks like crap, it doesn't have the roofs like the others, and the icon should
be pretty obvious. Once you get the Rocket Launcher, you have to destroy 10
vehicles. Since you are all the way out here, the only vehicles you can destroy
are boats. They move rather quickly, so always aim a bit in front of the boat
before you fire. If no boats are appearing, then try walking around and looking
back. If you can't seem to destroy ten boats in the given time, then try the
helicopter approach. Fly the helicopter to the hut thing, land it, and quickly
pick up the rampage icon and get back in the helicopter. Fly to the mainland, so
you can blow up cars. Cars are more frequent then boats, so it makes it much
4. Kill 25 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with the Shotgun
Location - On top of the Washington Mall. If you don't know where this is, just
kill yourself, and when you start at the hospital, it will be right in front of
you. Walk around the outside of the mall until you see the spiral parking lot
with neon lining. Walk up the parking lot, all the way to the roof. The rampage
is on the other end of the roof, by that blocked off staircase. The tricky thing
about the shotgun is that most of the time; it doesn't kill in one shot. So when
you target a gang member, once he hits the ground, shoot him a few times until
you see your kill count go up. You can shoot the gang members in the mall from
the roof, but if that isn't working for you, just jump down into the mall and
fight them. If you want one-shot kills, try walking really close to the gang
members. Close-range shots usually do kill in one shot, but the longer distance
shots take a few hits to kill. This one shouldn't be much of a problem.
5. Kill 10 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with a Katana
Location - From the hospital in Washington, head south down the road in front of
it. After the first left turn, there should be a bunch of houses, with small
sidewalks behind bush-fences. The rampage is in the second set of houses in that
area, between two houses and behind a tree. If you look on your radar, there
will be a gray L shaped road, apart from the main black ones. It is inside that
L area. The Katana is pretty simple to use. Just walk up to a pack of gang
members, and rapidly tap circle. He will make random slashes and kicks at them.
It takes a few slashes to kill a gang member. The key is to wait for them to
fall down, then kick them and stab them while they are on the ground. You should
only have to do this to a few groups to get ten kills.
6. Kill 20 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with a Chainsaw
Location - This is in the same block as the last rampage. Go around the other
side of this area, and you should see a wall with an open gate. It has a sign on
it that says "TO LET". Just walk inside the area, and the rampage should be
directly on your left. Note - another way to get here is to go to Rafael's. It
is across the street from the clothes shop. The chainsaw is easy to kill people
with. Just one slash in the right area and they are dead. What I did for this
one was just find a pack of gang members, and run into them while holding
circle. I get multiple kills doing this. You don't have to continue to hold
circle while he lifts up the chainsaw and jabs it into their mangled corpse,
which is just for entertainment. 20 kills should be no problem for this one.
7. Kill 25 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with a PSG-1
Location - From the Ocean View Hotel, head south and take the first right. At
the end of this road, you should see a parking garage with green vines growing
all over it. Go inside the garage and drive up to the roof. There should be a
double-ramp in one of the corners. Walk up to the ramp and walk off, landing on
a roof below. The rampage icon is at the corner of the roof you are now on. The
PSG-1 is semi-automatic. This means that every time you press circle, a shot
will be fired, unlike that other cheap rifle. So fire as fast as you want! I
just aim at a bunch of gang members in a circle, and then I fire rapidly. If you
see a red dot ANYWHERE on the gang member, he is dead once you press circle. Any
shots, even foot shots kill. If you can't find any gangsters walking around,
just zoom out and zoom in again and you should see some. By the way, don't make
the mistake of walking off the roof.
8. Kill 25 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with the M4
Location - From the hospital, head south and take the first right. As you head
down that road, you should see two buildings with steps leading up to them on
the right side. Head up the stairs of the second building, and the rampage icon
is on a wall to your right. To get up on the wall, either park a car there and
jump on the car, then to the wall, or get a running start and jump real quick.
If you are really bad at getting it, just use a helicopter. The M4 is an assault
rifle, so you have to use manual aim to kill people. I just aim at packs of gang
members and let it fire until they are all dead. You may find that the recoil
with the M4 is a problem. That is when your aim gets moved every time you fire.
To solve this, simply crouch down and it lessens the movement of your
crosshairs. The best spot for this rampage is on the corner of the ledge where
you just found the icon, crouching down and picking off gang members on the
9. Kill 25 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with an MP5
Location - Start at Starfish Island, and take the bridge that leads to the large
east island. As soon as you get off the bridge, go up the stairs that are on
your right. You should be in an area with a pool and some hotels. Drive around
to the rectangular building with a moat-like pool surrounding it. On the front
steps of the east side is the rampage icon. Just because the MP5 is a submachine
gun doesn't mean that you can kill people in a vehicle with it. You have to
shoot the gang members on foot for the kill to count. Just walk around the hotel
area and groups of gang members should appear. Target one, shoot, target
another, shoot, and so on. Once the group is dead, go find another group of
gangs. The MP5 has a long range of accuracy, so you can keep your distance while
10. Kill 30 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with the SPAS-12
Location - From the Ocean View Hotel, head north along that main road until it
comes to an end (when it sharply turns west). When it stops heading north, go
around back of the big hotel in front of you. There are two rampages back here.
The one I am talking about right now is between some bushes and the hotel wall.
This is on the side of the hotel that is facing the beach. I call this gun "the
overkill gun". It can kill in one shot, yet you are able to fire 8 shots into
the body before you have to reload. This racks up the kill count really fast.
Just target a group of gang members, fire a few shots, and the whole group
should be dead. Remember, this an automatic shotgun. I find the most gang
members just hanging out on the beach, in the sand, and some are on the sidewalk
right near the beach. You have plenty of time to complete this one. If you don't
do this rampage on the first try, it won't reappear. So make sure to do it the
11. Kill 10 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with the PSG-1
Location - This one is located behind the same hotel. Walk further back, and you
should see a small fence. Jump over it or walk around it, and you will be in an
area with a drained pool, some picnic tables, people walking around, and a glass
dome structure. The rampage icon is on top of the diving board by the pool. Just
walk up all of the steps to get to the top. Once you have the icon, don't jump
off! This is a great vantage point. This is one of the easiest rampages in the
game. 10 kills, with a semi- automatic rifle, from a great vantage point. Just
aim below, and you should see a few groups of gang members. Rapidly fire at
them, and just kill off a few groups. You should be able to get 10 kills during
the first minute. As I said before, if you don't see any more gang members, zoom
out, look around, and then zoom back in.
12. Drive-by and Waste 35 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with an Uzi
Location - From the bridge on Starfish Island, head east until you get off the
bridge. Once you get off the bridge, take the first left you see, heading north.
Follow that road all the way to the end; don't get off at any turns. You should
end up at a cul-de-sac. The rampage will be pretty obvious once you get there,
it is right near the water. I find it easiest to use a motorcycle for this one.
Keep at a decent rate of speed while shooting, so the gang members can't pull
you off the bike. The good thing about the bike is that you can shoot forward
while driving. Just drive around the cul-de-sac in circles, while shooting.
Remember, it has to be a drive-by for the kill to count.
13. Kill 20 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with a Chainsaw
Location - Get to the bridge that leads from the east island to Leaf Links.
Before you get on the bridge, you should see an opening in the wall on your
right, and there will be some docks by the water. Head down there, and the
rampage should be by the docks, somewhat close to the bridge. This is what I
said for the other chainsaw rampage - The chainsaw is easy to kill people with.
Just one slash in the right area and they are dead. What I did for this one was
just find a pack of gang members, and run into them while holding circle. I get
multiple kills doing this. You don't have to continue to hold circle while he
lifts up the chainsaw and jabs it into their mangled corpse, which is just for
entertainment. 20 kills should be no problem for this one.
14. Kill 30 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with a Rocket Launcher
Location - This one is in the North Point Mall. If you don't know where the
North Point Mall is, look on the map that came with the game. It is pretty
obvious. Once inside the mall, get to the second floor. Near Countdown Vinyl,
the store with the windows you can break right above the food court, there is a
planter area with some trees. The rampage is in there. Always make sure you keep
a good distance when firing the rocket launcher. If you fire it too close, you
may end up inflicting harm on yourself. My best advice is to climb up on a
ledge, and fire rockets down below at gang members. They are in packs, as
always, so it should only take a few well-placed rockets to get 30 kills. Watch
out for the police, though, they can get in your way right as you go to fire a
15. Kill 35 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with an M4
Location - Get to the east entrance of the North Point Mall. Right outside of
the doors, behind a small wall, is the rampage icon. There may be more than one
east entrance, so check both. The M4 is for manual aim, as I said before. To
control your aim, crouch down so it won't go out of control when you fire. I
find it easiest to walk up to packs of gangs and just open fire at point blank.
If the gang members don't show up after you kill a bunch, try walking in the
mall to find more. Just walk around a lot and more groups of gangs will appear.
I once turned around, and then turned around again and there were 15 gang
members just standing there
16. Kill 25 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with a Python
Location - Between the North Point Mall and the beach, there is a row of
buildings. Look for a short white and orange building with a lot of stairs in
the front. Go around back of the building (by the beach) to find the rampage
icon. This is my favorite pistol - it can kill in one shot, and it is damn
accurate. It fires six shots before you can reload. Walk around the streets near
the North Point Mall. When you see a group of gang members, hit R1 to target,
then circle to shoot. Keep doing this rapidly, and you can take down six gang
members in less than 2 seconds. You have to be quick, and you can fire off a lot
of rounds. The python has the longest range of the pistols, so take advantage of
17. Drive-by and Waste 30 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with an Uzi
Location - On the very north of the first island, even past the north point
mall, the rampage is here. It is behind the building that is across from the
north side of the parking lot near the North Point Mall. There is a ramp on the
right side of the building. Just walk up the ramp, and the rampage is right
behind the building. Motorcycles work best for drive-by rampages, because you
can shoot forward while driving. The easiest thing to do is drive down sidewalks
while shooting forward, killing gang members. Be sure to watch out for anyone
getting close, so they don't pull you off the bike. If you are bad at driving
motorcycles, just use a fast sports car. But watch out for gang members coming
up on the driver-side door to pull you out. They can shoot back, and often pop
the tires, making it hard to drive. 30 kills should be easy though.
Congratulations, this was the last rampage on the first island!
18. Run over and Kill 35 Gang Members in 2 Minutes
Location - This is the only rampage on Starfish Island. If you are heading west
on the main road in Starfish Island, the rampage is in the yard of the house on
the last right turn before the bridge. It is on the left side of the road you
turn onto. You need to jump over the fence to get it, so park a car, jump on the
car, and jump over the fence. The rampage is right by the driveway near the
house. If there is a car near the rampage, good, get in it, and drive over a
ramp lined up against the wall to get out of the closed area. If there isn't a
car, jump over the ramp, then steal a car. Drive down the sidewalks at a high
speed and run over every pack of gang members you see. Doing this on the main
street works well. Remember, you can't shoot them, you must run over them. You
have to hit them at a high rate of speed so they die.
19. Destroy 15 Vehicles in 2 Minutes with an RPG
Location - It is on a ship near the docks. To get there, start at the bridge
leading west from Starfish Island. Once you get off the bridge, turn south and
follow the road. Before some buildings split the road up, the boat should be
there. It is blue with cargo boxes and has ramps leading up to it. Walk up one
of the ramps to get on the boat. It is in that maze of cargo boxes. You
shouldn't have much of a problem finding it. The best spot to do this is
standing on the ship, looking down at the road. Destroy the passing cars, and
try to get a wanted level so some police cars show up that you can destroy. If
you can't find enough vehicles in time, try parking a bunch of cars near the
boat before you start the rampage. Or, for the cheaters, you could always do the
blow up all cars cheat.
20. Kill 35 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with Grenades
Location - I am going to use the south bridge that connects the two main islands
to tell you how to get to this rampage. This bridge is the one with two booths
on each side of the road; it is nonstop from one island to the other. Take that
bridge west, and when you get off, turn south. Take the first right turn you
see, so you are heading west. On your left up ahead should be a pinkish-orange
hotel building. Walk under that hole in the building, and go past the pool. Near
the grass beyond the pool is the rampage icon. It is actually to the left of the
pool, on the grass if you are just entering the hotel area. If you walk a little
further after picking up the rampage, there is a ledge. Don't walk off it, just
stay above it and drop grenades below. You should take out plenty of gang
members by doing this. Be warned - they can climb over the ledge and start
attacking you. Just keep throwing the grenades near groups of gangs you see, and
keep your distance.
21. Destroy 12 Vehicles in 2 Minutes with the RPG
Location - On top of the Escobar International Airport, the accessible one. You
will need a helicopter to get to this one. Once you have it, land on the roof of
the airport, and walk around. You should see the rampage on one of the hills
towards the edge of the roof. Alternate way - It has been brought to my
attention that there is a Unique Jump that will allow you to get to the roof. As
you are entering the airport, you should see a blue billboard with a surfer on
it. It is three-dimensional. There is a ramp leading up the billboard, so get a
car with a decent rate of speed, get some distance, and drive up the ramp. You
should land on the roof. Stay on the roof; it is easier to hit cars from up
here. There should be a lot of cars driving through the area below you, so fire
away. If you have trouble finding cars, get a wanted level to attract police, or
park a bunch of vehicles before you start the rampage, so you will have a lot to
destroy. If you flew the helicopter here, blow that up! You don't need it for
anything else. Another strategy - Jump on the roof so more cars will appear.
More cars will show up if you are on the ground then the roof, but you may
expose yourself to attack from the police and gang members.
22. Kill 25 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with the SPAS-12
Location - inside Escobar International Airport, behind a wall towards the back.
It is on the first floor, between a wall and some windows. If you don't know
where Escobar International Airport is, look on the map that came with your
game. The only thing difficult about this is that you cannot run with the
shotgun in your hands. This is automatic, so just target and let off a few
shots, and you should take down anyone in the area of your shots. The easiest
thing to do is target, shoot, and then target again quickly. If you can't find
any gang members to kill, try walking up the escalators and back down again to
make some new gang members appear.
23. Destroy 15 Vehicles in 2 Minutes with the Minigun
Location - This is outside of Baxter Air Force Base, behind Escobar
International Airport. Just follow those roads that are somewhat underground,
and you should end up near the air force base. Before you get near the walls
surrounding the base, the rampage is on the grass next to it, near some trees
and bushes. The Minigun is very powerful due to its high rate of fire. You can
destroy a car in less than a second if you are firing directly at it. Just shoot
at passing traffic, get a wanted level to attract police cars, and just destroy
any vehicle you see. If it comes to this, use the blow up all cars cheat to gain
some kills, if you are the cheating type of person. Alternate way - There is a
tank inside the military base if you have unlocked it. You can use that to
destroy the vehicles, also.
24. Kill 20 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with a Ruger
Location - Take the bridge heading west from Starfish Island. Once off the
bridge, turn south down the road. Take the first right turn you see, and follow
that road west until it ends. When it ends, there should be a building with a
red awning on it, and stairs that lead up to the top. Go up the stairs, and the
rampage icon is on the roof of the building. The Ruger is just like the M4, it
is an assault rifle, and you can make your aim better by crouching. Just crouch
on the roof where you found the rampage, and pick people off on the streets
below. They can't reach you from the roof, so try not to fall. If you feel that
you aren't getting enough kills, just jump down and start shooting all the gang
members below you. They seem to spawn more often when you are walking on the
25. Gun Down 20 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with a Sniper Rifle
Location - You need a helicopter to get this one. Once you get it, fly to the
bridge connecting Starfish Island to the large West Island. Directly across the
street from the bridge is the building with the rampage on the roof. Look at the
roofs; it should be easy to spot the purple icon. Land the helicopter on the
roof and get it. This is the crappy sniper rifle. You have to reload after every
shot, unlike the PSG-1. Stay on the roof, and aim at the gang members below you.
There are a lot of groups on the sidewalk, but once you kill a few, the rest of
the group starts running in fear. If you run out of gang members to kill, zoom
out then zoom in again and you should see some more.
26. Kill 10 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with a Katana
Location - Just a few buildings away from the last rampage is the next one. If
you know where the El Corrupto Banko Grande is, it is right behind that bank,
just go down an alley and you should see it near a loading bay. It is in a large
open area, so if you still have your helicopter, just fly a bit north and you
should see a large open area behind the next few buildings. It is in that area.
The Katana is pretty simple to use. Just walk up to a pack of gang members, and
rapidly tap circle. He will make random slashes and kicks at them. It takes a
few slashes to kill a gang member. The key is to wait for them to fall down,
then kick them and stab them while they are on the ground. You should only have
to do this to a few groups to get ten kills.
27. Kill 25 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with the Shotgun
Location - Right in the center of Little Havana is a large area of pink houses.
They are in a rectangle, and in the inside of the rectangle of houses are 3
basketball courts. If you have trouble finding it, just look from a helicopter
over Little Havana. It is easy to spot. In the basketball courts is the rampage.
Most of the time, the shotgun doesn't kill in one shot. You will need to shoot
your target a few times to make sure he is dead. You will know when you see your
kill counter change. To get one shot kills with the shotgun, just walk up really
close to your target and shoot. That should kill him instantly.
28. Kill 30 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with the Tec-9
Location - In Little Haiti, right around the area of the Print Shop, is a long
wooden fence. There is also a billboard that says "Life is a Bitch". Behind that
fence is a long yard behind those little houses. At the north end of the yard,
behind a house, is the rampage icon. The Tec-9 is a really crappy submachine
gun. It is inaccurate, and the rate of fire is terrible. Your best bet is
getting really close to your target, and then opening fire. It takes a lot of
shots to bring someone down with this gun.
29. Kill 35 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with a SPAS-12
Location - Also in Little Haiti, take the road that is west of the Print Works,
and take it north. Right as it curves, you should see a billboard that says,
"Welcome to hell". Before that billboard, there is an alley that leads out to
the ocean, and some docks. Follow that, and behind some buildings at the end of
the alley is the rampage icon. The SPAS-12 makes any rampage easy. Simply find a
pack of gang members, aim, fire. It should take down the whole pack in one or
two shots. Repeat for every pack of gang members you see.
30. Kill 30 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with the M60
Location - Take the west bridge heading from Starfish Island. Once you get off,
head north up that road with all the palm trees. Stay on it for a while, until
you see a building with a large pool in front, with a sign that says Moist Palms
Hotel. Turn in the road by the hotel and head towards the parking lot. Once you
get in the parking lot, turn right real quick, and right again, to find the
rampage right next to the hotel. The M60 is a very powerful weapon, it kills in
one shot, plus it is automatic. How much better can heavy artillery get? Just
crouch down, and aim at a pack of gang members. Pick them off one by one. You
can mow down whole pack of members in less than 3 seconds with this thing.
31. Drive-by and Waste 35 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with an Uzi
Location - Get to the Well Stacked Pizza shop in Downtown. It can be found on
your map that came with the game. To the left of the Well Stacked Pizza place is
an alley. Follow it, and take a left at the end of the alley. The rampage is
right there, out in the open behind some buildings. Motorcycles work best for
drive-by rampages, because you can shoot forward while driving. The easiest
thing to do is drive down sidewalks while shooting forward, killing gang
members. Be sure to watch out for anyone getting close, so they don't pull you
off the bike. If you are bad at driving motorcycles, just use a fast sports car.
But watch out for gang members coming up on the driver-side door to pull you
out. They can shoot back, and often pop the tires, making it hard to drive. 30
kills should be easy though.
32. Kill 25 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with a Python
Location - Across from the Ammu-nation in Downtown is a large set of steps
leading up the side of a building. This is also a unique jump. On the top of the
steps is the rampage icon. I recommend staying up there for a good vantage point
when shooting the gang members. This pistol is fast, powerful, and it is
accurate. Find a lot of gang members, and then quickly hold R1 and circle,
release R1 and quickly hit it again and fire, and keep doing this. You will take
down 25 members in no time if you fire this fast.
33. Kill 40 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with Molotov Cocktails
Location - Take the bridge heading west from Prawn Island. As soon as you get
off the bridge, start looking to your right. When you see a building with stairs
leading up to a door, that is the right place. Walk up the stairs, and the
rampage icon is right there. Molotov Cocktail rampages are tricky, because you
can easily set yourself on fire. The best thing to do for this rampage is to
keep your distance. Throw the molotovs at packs of gangs, and throw it further
by holding circle down longer. If the gang members come after you, run away so
you have enough distance to throw a Molotov at them. If it looks like you threw
it too close, quickly hit square and jump away before it explodes.
34. Kill 30 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with a Minigun
Location - Just a bit further down from that open area where you found the last
rampage, the next one is there. It is in front of a doorway where that weird
looking sculpture is. Get a vehicle near this one so you don't waste any time
walking to where there are people. Drive to where there are people, get out of
your car, and spray them down with Minigun bullets. As long as you don't let any
gang member get close enough to throw a punch at you, you'll do fine. Just spin
around and shoot, that is what I did.
35. Kill 30 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with a Flame-thrower
Right next to the Hyman Memorial Stadium are two helipads (to the north of the
stadium). Before you get on the helipads, the rampage is located next to the
steps leading to the walkway. Keep your distance when shooting flames at the
gang members. Go for the large packs of members, and run away if they come
running at you while they are on fire. This flame-thrower has much better
distance then the one in GTA III. Take advantage of that. Congratulations, you
completed all the rampages!
H. Hyman Stadium-Go to the second island. From the alley from Hyman Stadium, go
straight. Walk up the stairs and go through the doors. On the main road you
should see a sing telling which event is on tonight at 20:00.
1. Hot Ring (Race Derby)-You have to complete 12 laps, finishing either 1st,
2nd, or 3rd. Seems easy? Try doing this with about 12 other people trying to
kill you! I always go up on the bank at the beginning of the race, then shoot
the other racers with your Uzi. A couple good hits with an MP5 should make them
go BOOM! My first try I finished fourth, and got first on my second try. Just
remember that the races get harder as you enter more races.
2. Blood Ring (Destruction Derby)-This is so friggin' awesome! Since everyone
else drives into the center of the ring, just stay around the edge and swoop in
near the checkpoint. Remember to shoot people with your Uzi!
3. Dirt Ring (Obstacle Course)-You have to go through a series of checkpoints.
The good thing is that you have an infinite amount of time. :) Just go around
the track to collect those checkpoints, and then go on the obstacle course to
collect the rest. The most difficult to collect for me where the ones that are
on the thin wall-type thing. The first time I tried this, it took me 15 minutes!
VII. R3 Missions-These aren't really missions, just easy ways to get money. I
will tell you what to do and how much money you get until level 12 (if you can
go to level 12, that is). That's the level when you get a surprise!
A. Vigilante (Police Car)-In this vehicle, you take the job as a cop and chase
down criminals. To make cars get out of your way, press L3 fast and the siren
should come on. Reward-Max armor becomes 150.
B. Brown Thunder (Hunter)-You do not have to collect 100 hidden packages to get
this, only beat 'Keep Your Friends Close...' To get this, get in the cop uniform
at the police station south of the Malibu. Then get in another helicopter and
fly to the back of Fort Baxter Air Base. To see it, you have to get pretty
close. Get out of your chopper and get in the Hunter. Press R1 to fire the
Gatling gun and O to fire missiles. The Gatling aims when you get close enough.
Keep this in mind when doing 'Brown Thunder'.
C. Fire Fighter? (Fire Truck)-You'll have to hunt down cars that are on fire and
put them out. To move the fire hose, use the 'R' analog stick. After some cars
are put out, people will get out and run away. Don't ask why they are running
when they are fire! Just chase 'em down and spray 'em with water.
Reward-Fireproof (Very useful, especially if you use the Flame-thrower or
D. Paramedic (Ambulance)-You take the roll of an Ambulance driver, darting
around the city trying to save people and take them to the hospital that you got
the Ambulance at. Every bump/car you ram hurts the passenger. You don't get as
much time as the other missions, so try to hurry. Be careful not to flip the
ambulance and not to run over the injured! I was on mission 12 and had 2 people
left to deliver and this faggot just ran right into the damn truck!
Reward-Infinite Run (You can run forever, for those of you word-ily challenged)
E. Taxi Driver (Kaufman Cab, Cabbie, and Taxi)-Pick up people and drive them to
their location. If you don't run in to anything while taking them there, you
will receive a speed bonus. The cash you get is determined by how far away the
location is. Reward-Dropping off 100 passengers gives the Taxi's hydraulics!
F. Pizza Boy (Pizza Boy)-Hop on a Pizza Boy mo-ped and go around town delivering
pizzas to different people. To throw a pizza, push L2/R2 and press O (like doing
a drive-by). You get $10 for every successful pizza delivered. You have 5
minutes to deliver every pizza and get back to the restaurant. Seems easy, but
you have to get to level 10 to get the reward. Reward-Health becomes 150 (Thanks
G. Ice Cream Deliveryman (Mr. Whoopee!)-Get in an ice cream truck and turn on
the jingle. The 'Distribution' mission should start. The best place to sell 'ice
cream' is the Boatyard. Turn on the happy music and stop around a large group of
people. Someone should come running up, demanding some coke! I once had about 8
people at once. I think you get $10 an ice cream.
A. Properties-Would you like a different hideout besides the Ocean View Hotel?
Then this part of the FAQ is for you! The following section contains new
hideouts, where to find them, and how much they cost.
<<<1102 Washington Street>>>
Western most road in Washington Beach near Ken Rosenburg. No garages.
3321 Vice Point-Northern most street in Vice Point, near North Point Mall. No
Located behind the Pay 'N' Spray in Vice Point. Includes a 1-car garage and a
sniper rifle on the roof. Cost-$8,000
Across the street from Hyman Stadium. Look between the alley near the Recording
Studios. Includes 2 two car garages and 1 three-car garage. A helicopter on the
roof the re-spawns. Cost-$14,000
Located in the square-type road near Leaf Links Golf Club. A 1-car garage. Very
Near the Pole Position Club. The southern most street. The left street of the
ones closes together. No garage. Cost-$7,000
Near the greasy chopper. Walk up the stairs into a...shack! Can hold a
motorcycle and some Uzi ammo at the bottom of the stairs. Cost-$1,000
Screwdriver ($10)--You can stab and stab again with the trusty screwdriver. It's
more of a harassment tool than a serious weapon.
Hammer ($20)--Other than giving you the perverse satisfaction of beating someone
in the skull with a hammer, this tool doesn't offer much in the way of offense.
It's good for putting dings in cars though.
Nightstick (N/A)--Carried around by cops, it's more effective than using your
fists and looks great with the cop uniform.
Meat Cleaver ($50)--Used by chefs everywhere to chop through flesh and bone, the
meat cleaver does solid damage in a close-up fight.
Baseball Bat ($80)--Not only is it great for hitting baseballs, but it makes a
solid melee weapon.
Knife ($90)--This weapon is more refined than a meat cleaver and a bit quicker.
It's great for street fights.
Machete ($100)--As some may say, this is a knife--only bigger and better.
Katana ($300)--The katana is arguably the best melee weapon. You can quickly
dispatch and decapitate enemies with it, plus it has a fairly good range. You
can also run with it, unlike the chainsaw.
Chainsaw ($500)--This is definitely a case of style over substance. The chainsaw
is powerful and very bloody when you deliver a final blow to someone on the
ground, but it will slow you down when you carry it.
Remote Explosive/Incendiary Weapons
Grenades ($300)--Point a grenade in the desired direction (using the right
analog stick to free-look can be useful), and hold the circle button down to
throw--holding it down longer to throw farther. The explosion is very powerful,
taking out vehicles with ease. Just make sure you don't get near it.
Tear Gas (N/A)--Tear gas immobilizes humans and does no damage to vehicles. You
can pick up a few canisters by the Washington Beach police station. You may want
to experiment to see if you can squeeze some fun out of this weapon.
Molotov Cocktail (N/A)--A Molotov cocktail sets things on fire and is an
incredibly destructive weapon that's great for taking out-groups of enemies. Be
warned though, if you set yourself on fire, you'll take a lot of unavoidable
Remote Grenades ($8000)--These are just like regular grenades, only you control
when they explode with the tap of the circle button.
Car Bomb ($500)--Have your car rigged with a bomb at 8-Ball's bomb shop by the
docks. The bomb will go off when you trigger the detonator using the circle
button. Try to think of clever ways to integrate a car bomb into your mission.
Colt .45 ($100)--You can kill a man with a few shots from this weapon, although
it's really the most basic of firearms. The Python is infinitely preferable. You
can run while firing this weapon.
Colt Python ($2000)--The range of this weapon is inferior to some weapons, but
you can't beat its knockdown power. One shot, one kill. The python is great for
close-range gunfights, though you have to plant your feet when you squeeze off a
Shotgun ($500)--This shotgun has a low spread and high power. You can easily
take a man out with one shot up close or from a medium distance, but the low
spread makes it weaker for close combat than the other shotguns. As with all
shotguns, you must stand still while firing.
Stubby ($600)--An extremely wide spread makes the stubby a great close-combat
gun, but it's weak at medium range.
Spaz ($4000)--This shotgun has a medium spread and a seven-shot rapid-fire
magazine. This makes its extreme long-range and close-range deficiencies
disappear. You will have to reload the weapon, but its offensive power is still
Tec-9 (N/A)--Found only on the streets, the Tec-9 is an automatic pistol with a
higher rate of fire than the pistol, and you can run while shooting it. Its
effectiveness against multiple opponents is questionable.
Ingram ($300)--The Ingram Mac-10, as the name implies, is one step up from the
Tec-9. This gun is slightly more effective overall.
Uzi ($400)--This is a reliable and effective firearm. It boasts an excellent
rate of fire and good overall stopping power.
MP5 ($3000)--The MP5 is a military-grade weapon that excels in all categories.
Without question it's the best submachine gun in any situation.
Ruger ($1000)--The main draw of an assault rifle is the ability to aim it from a
first-person perspective, which allows you to shoot out tires and windshields.
The other draw is its power. Although your aim will be thrown off quite a bit
when you use this gun, you can go for headshots and mow down several men at
M4 ($5000)--The Colt M4 is like the Ruger, but it's superior in every way. Even
with its considerable firepower it can't easily take out a helicopter. But it's
still the best gun for the category. Remember that crouching will increase your
accuracy with these types of weapons.
Note: All heavy weapons must be purchased from Phil or found around the city.
Minigun ($10,000)--With the highest rate of fire in the game, the Minigun chews
up cars, people, or anything in front of it. The only catch is that you can't
target a specific individual with the R1 button. The gun fires at a slightly
upward angle, so it's best used against enemies that are standing on the same
ground you are.
Rocket Launcher ($8000)--For many players in many games, the rocket launcher is
the ultimate weapon. Even from a great distance you can create a large explosion
that destroys people and vehicles with great accuracy. This weapon is aimed from
a first-person perspective.
M60 ($8000)--The heavy machine-gun is probably the most reliable weapon in this
category. It has a high rate of fire and manual aim, and, unlike with the rocket
launcher, you can't hurt yourself with it. This gun is great for shooting down
helicopters, shooting up land vehicles, or taking out particularly tough people.
Flame-thrower (N/A)--Wantonly tossing flame around is fun but risky. If a
flaming individual makes contact with you, you'll start to burn as well. Still,
because it has a decent range and instantly nullifies threats, the flame-thrower
can be a useful weapon.
Sniper Rifle ($1500)--This is a single-shot rifle with a traditional sight.
While it fires only one round at a time, the zoom capability is just as good as
that of the PSG-1, and the sight is more reliable at extreme distances. One shot
PSG-1 ($6000)--The PSG-1 is a powerful semiautomatic rifle that can be used to
kill people or destroy vehicles from a distance. It holds seven rounds, each
capable of taking a man down in one hit. A car can be destroyed with one clip.
The minor drawback to this weapon is that at great distances the laser sight
indicator is hard or impossible to see. Take this into consideration when
choosing between the two.

another way to do a mission. Example-'Another Way To Do....' as the subject. Do
not send me mail asking me to join a fan club or crap like that. I will not
accept e-mail with codes in them! I think codes are for sissies! I'm not trying
to be mean, just sensible. By the way, if anyone knows any sites that need Vice
City FAQ's, e-mail them to me!
