1.0 Introduction

Right then, with that out the way let me introduce myself. I am
Psychotic34(no not literally, except on Vice City...)<--- that joke worked
better with the name I orignally wanted, which was Psychotic, but someone
already had it(I wrote this before I signed up) so I put my lucky number
on the end. Anyway, this is my first FAQ/Walkthrough, yay! Anyway, 
welcome to Vice City, nice place full of criminals. It's pretty similar 
to GTA3 but there are some differences, as I'm sure you'll discover. I 
am aiming to make this a definitive guide for Vice City, and with 0.8 
I feel as though I am nearly there. I will try to have an informal writing 
style(unlike that last sentence) but I don't know why I think it's a 
good idea. Oh well, maybe I'll find out one day.In case you are wondering, 
I'm from the UK (like Kent Paul, only I don't talk like him!)Other FAQs
by me, are currently, non-existant! See you for the next GTA Game, or 
possibly FFX-2 is a game I could do one for.I am currently doing a 
The Getaway Vehicles Guide, so look out for that, won't you?

OK, that was updated with 0.8, but now I am on 1.3, and I am slowly 
obtaining perfection, which is nice, I guess! I get lots of submissions
and questions each day, so It's hard to want to end this thing. 

Legal Stuff:

 personal, private use. It may not be placed on any web site or
 otherwise distributed publicly without advanced permission from the

Only these sites currently have permission to publish this work on 

If you want to put this guide on your site, E-mail me, I probably let
you, but you have to tell me first otherwise it's a breach of copyright
and you don't want to get sued when you could have just asked, do you? 
If you see it on any other site, then E-mail me.

*If you want to E-mail me any:
- Alternate Mission Strategies
- Challenges/Fun things to do
- Good Places to fight the Police
- Custom Missions

I would be very happy to recieve them and will try to include as many
as I can Just have the title of your email "Vice City" or something 
similar.I will try to reply to every E-mail, and I have so far but
don't expect me to reply if I get 100 e-mails or something. I have 
included every single Submission so far, so you probably won't get 
turned down, unless you say something like "I discovered an F-22/How
to Swim" etc. Also please include the name you would like to be credited
as, because the fun thing about submitting stuff is having your name in
a guide!*

No Chain-Mails, Viruses etc please!(Not that anyone listens, I get loads
of Viruses every day. Well, the most I've had in one day is 3, but I 
think all the ones I've been sent is from a worm)
Or indeed crazy E-mails about me stealing certain items, you know who
you are.......


1.1 Version History

0.1 11/16/02 The first version, added most things
102 kb

0.5 11/19/02 Added Car Stats, more secrets. Also more user-submitted 
things, and made it more friendly to people with small monitors. Gang
and character profiles, Vehicle Missions, Sunshine Autos.

0.6 11/23/02 Added:Radio Stations, Most Unique Jumps, Robbable Stores,
Good places to fight the Police and User Submitted Keep Your Friends
Close Strategy

0.8 11/30/02 Man this was a big (and tiring) update. I finally completed
the Unique Jumps Section, I started(and finished) the rampages section,
added a lot more secrets, glitches section, challenges, fun things, good
places to fight the Police and Alternate Mission Strategies for a couple
of missions. Oh and I did 20 Hidden Package Locations, Whew! The things
I do for you people

1.0 12/06/02 Well, I guess this is the first full version, as it contains
everything I planned the guide would, now that I have finally done all
of the hidden package locations. There is also many more secrets, fun
things, challenges, places to fight the cops etc. Also, my friend had
the idea of adding custom missions(Thanks Ryan!) so I am going to add

1.1 12/08/02 Overhauled the vehicles section, got E-Mailed 50 million times
by Iwan Best(maybe not THAT much) so added a great many things to the secrets
section. Doesn't seem like much has been added in terms of file size, but
trust me, it has! I was also E-mailed by many other people, so look at The
Job, Glitches, Secrets - other, fun things to do, custom missions. This 
update was kinda neccessary as I have been E-mailed so many times this week,
and a lot of my E-mails have been about Glitches, hmmmm. There is an 
outside possibilty that this will be the last but two update, but that is 
merely a possibility, I guess I could leave it open to adjustment permanently
and never have a Final version. The next version will have more descriptive
measures on how to finish the checkpoint missions, and then the one after
that will just be a massive user-submitted compilation. I will give about 3
weeks for people to E-mail me their submissions, and I will add a great many
Challenges, Fun Things, Fun Places to fight the Police and Custom Missions. 
But I guess I will leave it open for editing, as I'm sure that 
a) I will get many E-mails anyway
b) some kind of new secret like the Ghost Town(But NOT the Ghost Town I 
hasten to add)
Anyway, that's my two cents, but no-one reads this bit anyway, do they!?
269kb (25kb more, it ain't that bad I guess)

1.2 12/29/02 Lazy, I am! I got a lot of user-submitted stuff, So I added it
all to the guide, So that I didn't disappoint all those people!

1.3 01/01/03 Happy New Year! and all that. OK, I added an in-depth bit
to the vehicle missions bit (Spent 2 hours of new years day doing it whilst
writing in a notebook in blue pen (which ran out after 3 words) a green
pencil, a purple pencil and a brown pencil(because leads kept on snapping)
all of the checkpoints on lots of missions, so yeesh I am worn out I guess.
I added a couple of cars to the vehicles (well actually it was a Bus, an 
RC Car and an RC Chopper) Also 4 more custom missions, and also the standard
secrets, Glitches, Fun Places, Challenges and Fun Things to do. Also a couple
more unconfirmed cheats. And now the guide is over 300kb! yahoo! This
was written before I completed this version, so now I can also add that I
added 3 vehicles(Or is it 4? ah well) to that section, and a few more 
questions in the FAQ. This could be my last update in a while, don't wait
up for me! I'm planning a The Getaway Vehicles Guide. So look out for it!

1.3 The Law

When you do something naughty, and especially if a cop is there 
when you do it, your wanted level will go up. This is measured in a
series of stars:

One Star
What Can I expect?:Cops will just come up to you and beat you up 
with nightsticks, nothing major
How do I get rid of em?:Run like hell, change outfit, use a police 
bribe or use a respray shop
How do I deal with them?:However you like! these guys can be taken 
out in any way

Two Stars
What Can I Expect?:Two cops in each car pull up and shoot at you. 
Any Cop on the streets will now shoot and not use the nightstick
How Do I get rid of em?:Run like hell, change outfit, 2 police 
bribes or use a respray shop
How do I deal with them?:Shoot them, Shoot them ALL!

Three Stars
What Can I Expect?:Two cops in each car pull up and shoot at you. Any
Cop on the streets will now shoot and not use the nightstick, The Cops
Cops will now use Road Blocks and deploy stingers to burst your tires
(if you're in a car that is), A helicopter will come and shoot at you, 
heavily armed men will slide down ropes from the helicopter and shoot
you, and undercover cops pull up in Cheetahs. 
How Do I get rid of em?: Respray shop is your only way out now, 
unless you are lucky enough to get 3 police bribes
How do I deal with them?:OK, Shoot all cops(preferably with a Colt 
Python or a Shotgun), Drive around roadblocks and stingers by going on
the pavement, shoot those men that come from the helicopter before 
they hit the ground, and shoot the helicopter with a Rocket Launcher
or run back a little bit so you cansee it's windscreen, and fire with
the PSG-1 or Sniper Rifle into there, or try for a lucky rotor blade 

Four Stars
What Can I Expect?:Two cops in each car pull up and shoot at you. Any 
Cop on the streets will now shoot and not use the nightstick, The
SWAT teams will now use Road Blocks and deploy stingers to burst your
tires(if you're in a car that is), A helicopter will come and shoot at
you, heavily armed men will slide down ropes from the helicopter and 
shoot you, and undercover cops pull up in Cheetahs.Oh and very 
"friendly" SWAT Teams will show up in their Enforcer vans.
How Do I get rid of em?:Respray.4 police Bribes
How do I deal with them?:OK, Shoot all cops(preferably with a Colt 
Python or a Shotgun), Drive around roadblocks and stingers by going on 
the pavement, shoot those men that come from the helicopter before they
hit the ground, and shoot the helicopter with a Rocket Launcher, or run
back a little bit so you cansee it's windscreen, and fire with the 
PSG-1 or Sniper Rifle into there, or try for a lucky rotor blade shot.
As for the SWAT teams, Use a gun that packs a punch.

Five Stars
What Can I Expect?:Any Cop on the streets will now shoot and not use the 
nightstick,The FBI will now use Road Blocks and deploy stingers to burst
your tires(if you're in a car that is), A helicopter will come and shoot
at you, heavily armed men will slide down ropes from the helicopter and 
shoot you, any of the above which is still there will still be after you, 
and FBI teams armed with MP5s will show up in FBI Ranchers 
How Do I get rid of em?:Get to a respray shop, FAST or 5 police 
How do I deal with them?:OK, Shoot all cops(preferably with a Colt Python 
or a Shotgun), Drive around roadblocks and stingers by going on the 
pavement, shoot those men that come from the helicopter before they hit 
the ground, and shoot the helicopter with a Rocket Launcher, or run back
a little bit so you cansee it's windscreen, and fire with the PSG-1 or 
Sniper Rifle into there, or try for a lucky rotor blade shot.As for the 
FBI, I'd use something that can take them out QUICKLY, like a Flame 
Thrower, but you'd do well to blow up their cars before they get out.

Six Stars
What Can I Expect?:Any Cop on the streets will now shoot and not use the
nightstick, The Army will now use Road Blocks and deploy stingers to 
burst your tires(if you're in a car that is), A helicopter will come and 
shoot at you, heavily armed men will slide down ropes from the helicopter 
and shoot you, any of the above which is still there will still be after 
you, and The Army show up in Rhino Tanks or Barracks OLs.
How Do I get rid of em?:Respray, 6 police bribes
How do I deal with them?:OK, Shoot all cops(preferably with a Colt Python 
or a Shotgun), Drive around roadblocks and stingers by going on the
pavement, shoot those men that come from the helicopter before they hit 
the ground, and shoot the helicopter with a Rocket Launcher, or run back 
a little bit so you cansee it's windscreen, and fire with the PSG-1 or 
Sniper Rifle into there, or try for a lucky rotor blade shot.The Army? 
Colt Python and SPAS-12 Shotgun do well, but blowing up their vehicles before 
they can get out is good, but with one problem:The tanks will survive 
anything you have to throw at it, then again, that is fairly inaccurate 
as you can use the FlameTHROWer and you can THROW Molotov Cocktails at 
them. They are the ONLY things that will hurt a Tank, yes even Rocket 
Launchers and Mini-Guns don't affect this metal monstrosity.


1.4 Powerups
Heart Icon:Restores health to max
Shield Icon:Restores Body Armour to max
Pill:Adrenalin Pill, Slows down time matrix-style, your blows also 
do more damage
Iwan Best says:It slows down time more than you so you go faster than anyone 
else.You can run faster than cars and never stop sprinting 
Star:Police Bribe, Removes your wanted level by one.
Weapon:Picture of the weapon and a coloured ring around it, you will
receive this weapon(unless you have a similar type in which case 
press L1 to change weapon to the new one or just ignore it if you 
like your old one)

The three most common places where you are likely to find "Streetwannabes" are

- The Army! yes, although previosuly mentioned they come under streetwannabes
if you kill them. NOTE:Fort Baxter Army only

- "The streetwannabes are the guys with the leather jackets who hang around
the mall" 
Thanks to PuNkBoY2000182 for that

- The guys in Phnom Penh '86 are streetwannabes

- Also, DPB Security ?!?!?!!?!? Well, maybe, I can't be bothered to kill
enough, and trust me, I need to kill a LOT to get level with just the
Vercetti Gang(yeah, I kill loads of my own men) Let alone the Haitians
(I have probably killed around 500 Haitians!!)


1.7 Radio Station Info

So, what radio stations do I listen to? well, if you really want to know:
(in order of preference)
1) VRock - I love all songs on it, other than the two Love Fist ones.
2) VCPR - Every conversation is funny!
3) K-Chat - Only Mr. Zoo is funny.
4) Flash FM, if Video Killed the Radio Star and Japanes Boy are on(Because
they are so cheesy, they are good!)
5) Emotion - but only for Fernando! I think I listened to 1 minute of a song
on there, and that's it. If I'm flicking through and hear Fernando, then I'll
listen until the song.
6) Wildstyle - I occasionally listen to it, not often
7) Fever - Last night a DJ Saved my life! well, thats the only one I think is 
*OK* I don't think it's that good a song
8) Esperantoso - No.Just no. But it does feature the guy that made an Anti-Mr
Burns song on the Simpsons! (You know, when he gets shot and there's all the
suspects, he's the music teacher Lisa wants) Unfortunately, he doesn't sing 
it, that would definately save Esperantoso from mediocrity, making it poor 
rather than pathetic.

But this is all opinion, one person I know likes Wildstyle, another likes 
Flash. That's just the way it goes.

1.8 How to Actually Play Vice City
No, this isn't controls

The Main idea of the game in my opinion anyway, is to make as much money
as you possibly can. You need money for a lot of things in this game, and
after you complete the game is the best time to go on the rampage. If
you've just left Liberty City, here are some new stuff Vice has:
- Motorbikes - only go on these to look cool, do stuff like wheelies or
attempt insane jumps. You lose a lot of health from crashing bikes, and
frankly they aren't worth the risk
- Helicopters - Helicopters are a great way to get around, as you avoid
all the traffic and you can take a more direct route rather than taking
the roads. The only problem is avoid crashing into buildings AT ALL COSTS
as once those rotor blades start scraping the sides of the buildings, the 
Choppers going to be a flaming mess and there'll be only one way out.
to Jump.
- Boats now appear like random traffic, which is much better because in
Liberty you were the only one on the water
- Weapons. There are a HELL of a lot more weapons(See weapons guide) but
don't worry, all your old favourites are still availiable. The main thing
is, you can only carry one of each type, but see the Weapons section for
a lot more detail
- Car Damage. You can now shoot people through the windows of their cars,
because frankly shooting the windscreen in GTA3 and having nothing happen
was very unrealistic, especially if you did it to a convertible. Also, tires
can be popped which again is a good step towards realism. Another thing
is that cars are now damaged by ALL weapons, as again, hitting cars with 
bats in GTAIII did nothing, and was extremely annoying
- You can now enter quite a few buildings, which is fun because you can
now hold up stores
- You have to buy businesses and hideouts, as you are only given two
hideouts throughout the game
I think these are the main changes. As for money, the only major way of
getting it is by doing missions, either story missions, getting assets 
from your businesses or R3 missions, and EVERY mission is covered in this 
guide. Sure, there are other ways of getting money, such as Holding up
stores, Driving Buses, Smashing Parking meters and killing people but
you don't really get enough money for doing those things. I'd only
reccomend doing those kind of things for fun. Stick to completing all
the missions first, as the game isn't as fun if you only have half the
city, vehicles and weapons to play with, then just sit back, and cruise
Vice City in your Sports Car at night, listening to VRock. Or just go
crazy and kill everyone and thing in site! The thing that has made the
GTA games so popular, is that they are non-linear, and combine many genres
so you can do whatever you want, Vice City takes everything good out of 
each game. But anyway, that's enough of listening to me, we'd best get
on with the guide. And first up, it's all about those things that lighten
up Vice City(No, Not the Hookers.....) it's the Weapons!

2.0 Weapons
You Can only carry 8 weapons at a time:One fist weapon, one Melee 
Weapon, one Pistol Weapon, one Sub-Machine Gun Weapon, one Shotgun 
Weapon, one Heavy Machine Gun Weapon, one Explosive Weapon and one 
Heavy Weapon.
As for my personal recommendations, I'd say:
Fist:Brass Knuckles
Pistol:Colt Python
Sub-Machine Gun:MP5
Shotgun:SPAS-12 Shotgun
Heavy Machine Gun:M4
Explosive:Anything other than Nerve Gas(make your own choice, I use 
Heavy Weapon:Anything other than the M60(Make your own choice, I use 
the Rocket Launcher)

The Cool thing is, if you want to store any weapons then just enter either
Leaf Links or The Airport Terminal, then not pick them up outside! They
Stay there!

Weapons below are listed in my ranking, from worst to best IN EACH 
CATEGORY, NOT OVERALL. Because in my opinion, the Brass
Knuckles are better than the Screwdriver, yet they are in different 
categories.The categories are kinda listed in weakest to best, but 
Explosives aren't really all that good.

2.9 Heavy Weapons

I had an angry person(sorry, I really can't remember your name) tell me
that he thought the M60 was the best heavy weapon. It is down to personal
preference but I can't see the point if you have an M4.

Description:Big Machine Gun
Where Do I find It?:Phil Cassidy's Trailer($8000)
Vs People:I see dead people.
Vs Vehicles:heh heh

 doesn't stand up to other heavy Weapons.Frankly, it'd have done 
better if it were a heavy machine gun rather than a heavy weapon

title is a joke.(watch Terminator 2 some time or play Metal Gear
Solid(NOT Metal Gear Solid 2))

Vs People:Mwhahahahahah
Vs Vehicles:Mwahahahahahah
+ Points:It's COOL, it kills anything in sight(other than tanks)
- Points:IF only it could shoot choppers
Wait just a minute! I have been informed by Ryan that if
you aim just under a chopper, you will then see the bullets
fly up and hit the thing! So, we need a new bad point. Hmmm, I
haven't yet tested the Mini-Gun vs Chopper thing yet, but I believe
what I have been told, but what I am wondering is that what if the
Mini-Gun has the same effect on choppers as the M4 has?(Ie 0) oh
and it is extremely weak against tanks, and there is no auto-aim

I have also been told by Matt Pinske about this, but he has tested
it and found it works with all weapons! but obviously Mini-Guns work
the best!

and Verizoton E-mailed me about this too, so everyone, I have been
told 3 times how stupid I am(not literally :) ) so don't tell me

Description:It's been in every GTA Game, so you should know what 
it is by now.
Where Do I find It?:RockStar Logo-Shaped Pool on Starfish Island, 
also one in Viceport.
Vs People:Burn them, burn them ALL
Vs Vehicles:Even kills tanks
+ Points:It kills everyone, including tanks(which is the only reason 
why I rank it better than the Mini-Gun), it goes through walls, wide 
area of effect.
- Points:No auto-aim, Using it on someone at close range is 
incredibly stupid.

Rocket Launcher
Description:It Launches rockets, and has been in every GTA Game
Where Do I find It?:Phil Cassidy's Trailer, ($8000) 
Vs People:How does that Slayer Song on VRock go again, oh yeah, RAINING
BLOOD! (I always thought it was reign in blood, perhaps my album is 
wrong. Anyway, listen out for it on VRock.)
