            Simply replace [gnat] with "@" when responding. I chose [gnat]

0=====================================>

    **NOTICE: This guide may only be distributed and/or posted in its 
              original format (and, most importantly, UNALTERED in any way).

    If you wish to post or use excerpts from this guide then please ask for 
    my permission first before doing so (especially if you work for a 
    magazine or website). A lot of time and effort was spent putting this 
    thing together and that should be taken into consideration.

    And remember.....

       "Respect is everything."

    Besides, contacting me will also give me an opportunity to hook up and 
    talk shop with fellow Vice City "thuggers".....

I truly want to thank those who have written to me about this guide even if
you haven't received a response. I tend to read my e-mail late at night and
sometimes I'm too tired to respond right away. Mainly because I'm either a)
updating my other documents, b) hacking up a console or doing more RGB
experiments, c) playing new games or d) I've had a rough night at work (I
work retail you know....).

I've received a lot of nice e-mail about this guide from people around the
world saying how good the guide is and offering suggestions (many of which
made it into the previous revisions). I intend to continue updating and
polishing this document for as long as possible.

"Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" is copyright 2002-2003 by Rockstar Games, a
subsidiary of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. All rights reserved.

"Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" Official Strategy Guide - Written by Tim
Bogenn. Copyright 2003 by BradyGames, a division of Pearson Education, Inc.

The Official Strategy Guide was used as reference during initial construction
of this text based guide for the following:

  >>Table of Contents (to determine overall game structure)
  >>Hidden Package Maps
  >>Rampage Maps
  >>Unique Stunt Jumps Maps
  >>Weapons Location Map
  >>100% Completion List

All other trademarks and copyrights contained in this document are owned by
their respective trademark and copyright holders.

<+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++>

This is probably the single biggest revision I have done to this guide. I
have reorganized the weapons and items and redid many of the instructions to
finding them. I also did the same for the Hidden Packages, Unique Stunt Jumps
and Rampages.

In addition, I have updated the artistic look and feel of this document. This
is to help give a consistent look and organization to all of my "Grand Theft
Auto" guides.

Plus, I have created tour guides for each major area of Vice City which will
help the reader to get familiar with this metropolis.

Finally, I have also throughly proofread this guide to clean out errors that
have been there for a long time. And I have added new ideas and information
to the following chapters and sub-chapters:

  >>Rampages Explained
  >>"The Chase" (Ricardo Diaz)
  >>"Spilling The Beans" (Vice City Printing Works Asset)

This guide uses a Quick Search Feature which takes advantage of the Find
feature used by many web browsers. This feature will allow you to go to any
chapter or section in this guide quickly.

On the left side of many of the chapters, as well as the right side of each
of the major section headers, in the Table of Contents is a four character
code. To access any of those chapters or sections do CTRL-F (PC) or Clover-F
(Mac) to activate the Find feature in the web browser. Then enter the code in
BRACKETS (or at least the left bracket) like this:

[xxxx] or [xxxx

You will notice that the chapters for the Main Story Missions do not have a
four character code. They are accessed a little differently. To access any of
the Main Story Mission chapters you activate the Find feature and enter the >
character followed by the chapter number like this:

>KR6 or >ZD12

This feature also works backwards. You will notice that the Table of Contents
has it's own four character code. Should you want to quickly go back to the
top of this document input the four letter code for the Table and you will
instantly be back at the top of the guide.

My name is Robert Allen Rusk and I am a hardcore gamer with about 30+ years
of gaming experience. I am an ex-gametester (Broderbund Software, LucasArts
Games, Point Of View Computing) and an ex-arcade attendant (Namco
Cyberstation - Pier 39, San Francisco, CA).

I also own multiple systems such as the Sega Dreamcast, Super Nintendo,
Nintendo 64, Atari Jaguar, PlayStation 1 and 2, Xbox and Xbox 360.

I currently work at JCPenneys at one of the malls here in San Antonio, TX. 
Retail isn't the best job in the world but JCPenneys has given me the job
stability I did not have much of prior to employment there. This also led to
personal stability that allows me to write and maintain the guides I have
built.

I started writing guides in 2003 because I felt it was something I could do
utilizing my writing skills gained in college and gametesting along with my
passion for vidgames.

Over time I have honed my overall writing and organization skills plus my
creative thinking skills. Additionally, I have extended the play value of the
games I have written guides and FAQs for many times over plus I have received
many letters from all over the world.

I am also what one may call an RGB Analog Video enthusiast. I hack most of my
game consoles to try to get the best possible video from them and that
usually involves tapping into the RGB Analog video signals and using them on
the right monitors to achieve my desires.

To this end I became a member of the GamesX.com mod forum and I post on their
"RGB + Video Discussions" forum area from time to time.

In addition, I am a member of the X-Otic Computer Systems of San Antonio
(www.xcssa.org), a group who specializes in Linux, Mac, and other systems. We
are also a group of hackers and electronics enthusiasts.

I am also a regular forum poster at GameFAQs, an occasional poster at
AtariAge, Digital Press, GTA Forums and Video Game Saga. I am also a member
of The MoFaT (a members only message board set up by "Grand Theft Auto: Vice
City" players who met on the Vice City message boards at GameFAQs).

Outside of gaming, my interests include "Godzilla" (I have been a G-Fan since
the age of ten) and "Red Dwarf" (I own all eight series plus the "Back to
Earth" mini-series on DVD). I am also a long time soundtrack collector with
many titles in my possession.

As far as favorite sports teams go, my teams are the San Antonio Spurs (NBA)
[the local team], the Denver Broncos (NFL) [although I live in Texas, I am
originally from Colorado Springs, Colorado] and the Air Force Falcons (NCAA
Football).

This guide was constructed using BBEdit Lite 6.1 and a Power Mac Workgroup
Server 8550/200 (with a G3 card running at 330 MHz). It is now being
maintained using TextWrangler on a 1.5Ghz Single Core Intel Mac Mini. I view
my work in Safari to help in seeing how it would look on the web and correct
format errors.

I also play GTA:VC on my NEC MultiSync 3D RGB monitor using a homebrew RGB
box that contains a EL1883 (MacroVision compatible) sync separation chip to
acquire video sync, for RGB use, from Composite Video.

When I do my writing and guide revisions, I run my Mac (on a Dell monitor)
alongside the PS2 (on my MultiSync 3D monitor). This way I can simultaneously
play and make changes to the guide at the same time.

Part of my setup also includes a regular Xbox and Xbox 360.

The sound is hooked up to an old stereo box I got from Radio Shack when I
acquired my first Amiga 500 in 1990 and it has served me well considering its
age.

For my guide work I have more that twenty memory cards for my PlayStation 2.
I have reorganized the game saves on my memory cards and I now have eight
cards specifically dedicated to "Grand Theft Auto III", "Grand Theft Auto:
Vice City" (Original Version (1.40)), "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas" (which
uses up fifteen cards), "Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories" and "Grand
Theft Auto: Vice City Stories".

These memory cards allow me to quickly go and try out new ideas (and modify
old ones) when they occur to me or suggested by others.

I have done 100% Completion twice prior to making this document and did it 
four more times (two on the Original, one on the Double Pack version and one
on the Haitian-Friendly Version) on the PS2 versions. I have also done 100%
Completion on both the Original and Haitian-Friendly versions for the Xbox.

Welcome to my "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" guide! If this is the first time
you have visited then you will find a lot of useful information in a highly
organized format that you can use to beat all of the missions of the game.

Quotes taken from readers' e-mail are presented "as is" and may include
spelling and grammatical errors.

When I first posted my initial version of this guide in 2003, I did not know
how well it would go over and how many people would respond. I wasn't exactly
swamped with e-mail but I do get letters from time to time.

Sometimes people would ask for advice and others would say how cool the guide
is. All it takes is for one person to say how good and useful your guide is
to make it all worthwhile. And others have made suggestions that have been
incorporated into my guides.

I want to thank GameFAQs for creating a place where such documents can be
hosted for the benefit of all gamers. I also want to thank IGN.com,
NeoSeeker.com, TheVGNation.com, GameHelper.com and many other sites for
their generosity in hosting this guide along with my other work on their
sites.

I also want to thank everybody who has taken the time to download and 
read this guide. I love this game and I wanted to share my creative ideas 
with fellow Vice City "thuggers".

And, of course, I want to give a special thanks to all those who have taken 
the time to write to me and tell me what you thought, make suggestions, and 
ask questions.

With that said, let's get down to business shall we?.....

The main emphasis of this guide is to provide creative and simple solutions 
to many of the missions of "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City". Many hours were
spent going over each mission and finding unique ways to solve them. I think
you will be surprised by many of the solutions found here.

I have worked hard to make sure that this guide is as complete as possible 
but at the same time leave room for exploration. I even included interesting
and humorous anecdotes, observations, and lines from Vice City (plus made-up
quotes). I hope that you enjoy this guide as much as learn from it.

While this guide was written initially for the PS2 version of the game, it
may also benefit those with the PC and Xbox versions of Vice City. If any of
the strategies in this guide won't work in either the PC or Xbox versions
then feel free to write me and let me know so I can make additional
adjustments in future revisions.

This guide is designed so that you can do the missions without any cheat 
codes. However, I have included one code, the Health Code (in the "Advanced 
Tips And Information" chapter), to give you a little flexibility.

In addition, this guide also reveals three reliable ways (depending on what
version of Vice City you have) to get around the roadblocks at the start of
the game.

Another emphasis of this guide is ORDER. If you do the missions and tasks in 
a certain order then the game will be easier and more fun for you.

Although the guide follows more or less the traditional story order, there
are ways to acquire more powerful weapons early in the game. The chapter
"Going to Vice City Mainland Early" is the best way to get these weapons
early plus allow you to do all of the side-missions prior to doing the Main
Story Missions.

Each Hidden Package, Unique Stunt Jump and Rampage has a letter designation
to make them easier to identify in this guide. In addition, there is a three
letter Neighborhood Prefix (listings below) indicating a particular
neighborhood or area where the item can be found (in these examples I use
"XXX"):

  >>Hidden Packages will be identified with an "H".
    --Examples: Hidden Package [XXX-H21].
                Package [XXX-H32].

  >>Rampages will be identified with an "R".

  >>Unique Stunt Jumps will be identified with a "J".

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

"Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" is the follow-up to the smash hit "Grand Theft 
Auto III". Like its predecessor, Vice City is a freeform "sandbox" adventure
game where you can do pretty much anything you want.

Vice City is set in the 1980's (1986 specifically) which is about the time
when most adult gamers, when they were children or teens, were into the
Commodore 64s, Sega Master Systems and Nintendo Entertainment Systems.

Initially, I was expecting "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" to be just like
"Grand Theft Auto III" but with a little more polish.

But what Rockstar did was nothing short of incredible. They overhauled
everything, compiled a massive soundtrack the likes of which the gaming world
hadn't seen at that point (a lot of good 80's music) and got some major
Hollywood talent to lend their voices (like Ray Liotta and Dennis Hopper).

Plus a more refined story, motorcycles, helicopters, better weapons and the
ability to change outfits and purchase property.

There are more missions in Vice City than there were in "Grand Theft Auto
III" (88 in Vice City, 73 in GTA3). Plus, the missions are more involving,
but still not too complex.

I guess that the designers didn't want to let too many things get in the way
of experiencing the full scope of Vice City. And such a large scope it is
too.

This was a major leap forward and Rockstar Games was highly commended for not
taking the easy way out. And it was worth every penny I paid for it (and I
pre-paid two months in advance at the local GameStop).

The only major downside to Vice City is that, since Vice City was such a
major leap from "Grand Theft Auto III", then how was Rockstar going to top
themselves for the next chapter in the Grand Theft Auto series?

"Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas", released in 2004, provided the answer to
that question. Larger and more expansive than anyone thought possible. This
made Vice City puny and old by comparison. And that's saying a lot.

And, of course, "Grand Theft Auto IV", released in 2008, makes Vice City and
all of the previous GTAs look really old. But they are still classic games.

 /=========================================================================\

| I.7. "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories"                         [GVCS] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

In 2006, Rockstar Games released "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories", a
prequel to "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City", on the PlayStation Portable (PSP)
handheld system. Later, in early 2007, Rockstar Games released this game for
the PlayStation 2 game console.

Set in 1984, two years before the events in "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City", it
tells the story of Victor Vance, big brother to Lance Vance who is a major
character in "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City".

In this guide you will find many references to Vice City Stories. Mostly in
the Tour chapters plus a chapter that utilizes some creative writing to tie
both "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories" to "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City".

With all that said, let's get down to the business of the guide itself and I 
will start with the differences between the three PlayStation 2 versions.....

 /=========================================================================\
0===========================================================================0
| I.8. Differences Between the Three PS2 (American) Versions         [DFPS] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

When "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" came out for the PS2, there were several
issues that came up like the Detonator Bug, getting hurt running off
sidewalks and other glitches.

When Rockstar announced that they were doing a Double Pack version containing 
both "Grand Theft Auto III" and "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City", there was talk
that Rockstar might go into the PS2 version of both games and do some
clean-up work.

What Rockstar did was to put in some new ideas that were implemented in the
PC version to make the PS2 version equal to the other versions (although
another reader said that these were done to the foreign versions of Vice City
prior to the PC version).

Later, Rockstar did another version of Vice City that removed references to
killing Haitians in response to protests by the Haitian community. This is
known as the "Haitian-Friendly" version.

There are four ways to determine what version of "Grand Theft Auto: Vice
City" (American - NTSC) you have:

0===============0
| Version Number \
0=====================================>

  By placing the game disc inside a computer and opening the file 
  "system.cnf" within a text editing program then you can tell what version 
  of the game it is. There are three version numbers to note.

0================0
| Bar Code Number \
0=====================================>

  At the lower left of the back cover is the barcode. The bar code number 
  starts with 10425. Then there is another set of numbers after that. This 
  set of numbers changes from version to version.

0==================0
| Disc Banner Color \
0=====================================>

  On the disc itself you will find the PlayStation 2 logo near the bottom of 
  the artwork. The banner that the wording is on is either going to be red or 
  black. If it is red then it is part of the Double Pack set. If it is black 
  then it is a Stand-Alone disc.

0==========0
| Disc Ring \
0=====================================>

  There is a way to identify the game version by looking at the disc itself. 
  Take your Vice City disc and flip it over so you are looking at the data 
  (silver) side.

  Near the center hole you should see the PlayStation 2 logos. Beyond that 
  you should see some bar codes. This is the Disc Ring.

    Opposite the barcodes you should see some lettering:

       PDSS-004995A1

    If you see this then this is a Haitian-Unfriendly (Original) Version.

    But, if you see this:

       PDSS-004998A1

    Then this is a Haitian-Friendly Version.

All of this information will help you in determining what version of "Grand
Theft Auto: Vice City" you have so you can avoid game save incompatibility
issues.

Listed below is the information on the PlayStation 2 versions:

0===============================0
| Original Version (Stand-Alone) \
0===============================================>

  Version Number: 1.40
  Bar Code Number: 27145
  Disc Banner Color: Black
  Disc Ring: PDSS-004995A1

0=======================0
| (Original) Double Pack \
0===============================================>

  Version Number: 2.01
  Bar Code Number: 27300
  Disc Banner Color: Red
  Disc Ring: PDSS-004995A1

0===============================0
| (Haitian-Friendly) Double Pack \
0===============================================>

  Version Number: 3.00
  Bar Code Number: 21383
  Disc Banner Color: Red
  Disc Ring: PDSS-004998A1

0===============================0

0===============================================>

  Version Number: 3.00
  Bar Code Number: 27388
  Disc Banner Color: Black
  Disc Ring: PDSS-004998A1

It should also be noted that the version of Vice City that is featured within
the "Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy" (PS2) is the Haitian-Friendly version.

Here is the list of major and minor changes that have been found so far:

0=============0
| Version 2.01 \
0=====================================>

  >>The Cherry Popper Save Glitch, which corrupts game saves when saved at 
    Cherry Poppers, has been fixed.

  >>The Detonator Bug is fixed for the DP version. More details in the "Bugs"
    chapter.

  >>The "Trial By Dirt" mini-game has been altered. The rain, Haitians on 
    motorcycles and barrels won't show up when you do it the first time.

    The second time around then the barrels will appear. If you beat your 
    best time then rain will appear the next time.

    If you beat your best time again then the Haitians will appear on your 
    next attempt. In addition, the stat glitch (in where the stat would not 
    show up until you did "Test Drive" and only as the same time as that 
    mini-game) has been fixed.

  >>The Lionel Ritchie song "Running With The Night" (Flash-FM) has been 
    removed from the Double Pack version.

  >>The blurry vision in "Boomshine Saigon" is far less in the DP version 
    although the screen will still swerve around.

  >>Many weapons have been renamed.

  >>In the opening cutscene for "Recruitment Drive" (Interglobal Films 
    Asset) the big breasted woman with the pasties is now wearing a halter 
    top instead.

0=============0
| Version 3.00 \
0=====================================>

  >>References to Haitians and Cubans have been either altered or removed 
    (the main reason for Version 3.00).

  >>The Tear Gas that sits behind the Washington Beach Police Station has 
    been replaced by Grenades.

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Just like on the PlayStation side, there are also two versions of Vice City
for the Xbox: Original and Haitian-Friendly.

One of my readers, Kenneth Lowery, wrote to me concerning differences for the
Xbox versions. After reading the previous version of my Differences FAQ then
he checked the bar code on the back of his Double Pack copy.

He noticed that there was a sticker that covered another bar code. After
reading his letter I tracked down a copy of what he determined was the
Haitian-Friendly version for the Xbox.

Just like in the PS2 versions, the Xbox versions also have the game save
incompatibility issue. However, the Xbox will make another Vice City game
save folder instead of overwriting the older one so you can have two Vice
City folders on the hard drive.

Outside of the script changes for the Haitian / Cuban missions there is only
one other change to note:

>>They fixed the Pedestrians Go Silent bug. The Pedestrians Go Silent bug was 
  a glitch that caused the pedestrians to go quiet even if you hit them with 
  a car. Unfortunately, this fix introduced more sound glitches so the game 
  actually sounds worse.

Xbox Bar Code data:

0====================0
| Double Pack Package \
0===============================================>

  (Original) DP Version: 10425 29284
  (Haitian-Friendly) DP Version: 10425 29387

In addition, the Disc Ring method, for determining the game types, also works
for the Xbox versions. However, the lettering is smaller and can be found in
two places along the ring area:

0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

What are some of the differences between the Original Xbox and PS2 versions?
Which one is better (from a technical standpoint)? Here's the breakdown:

0=========0
| Graphics \
0=====================================>

  The graphics on the Xbox version are better than it's PS2 counterpart but 
  the animation tends to be a choppy thus negating some of its advantage. In 
  addition, the Xbox version has Progressive Scan and that's a nice plus.

  With the release of Xploder HDTV Player for the PS2 you can now enjoy Vice 
  City in 480p (although the main title introduction glitches up a bit due to 
  "meshing issues").

0======0
| Sound \
0=====================================>

  The sound on the Xbox version tends to be quite glitchy. Inappropriate jet 
  noises plus the Pedestrians Go Silent glitch (on the Xbox 
  Haitian-Unfriendly version) gives the PS2 the edge even though you can make 
  customizable soundtracks on the Xbox version.

  On the Xbox Haitian-Friendly version, even though they fixed the 
  Pedestrians Go Silent glitch, there's more sound glitches.

| Controls \
0=====================================>

  The controls on the Xbox version are OK even though doing drive-bys was 
  made a bit awkward because you had to use the Right Analog Stick. The PS2 
  version gets the edge here although the Xbox controls aren't as awful as I 
  made them out to be before.

  After playing around with San Andreas (Xbox), the controls for Vice City 
  (Xbox) seem so much better.

| Console Hardware Data \
0=====================================>

  >>PlayStation 2
    *************
      The PS2 version runs pretty well but you can encounter sudden pop-ins 
      if you are driving very fast and outrun the object loading (but it 
      doesn't happen too often). Texture loading is pretty smooth but there 
      will be some occasions when you see slow loading textures but it is not 
      too bad.

      Although I do not have a PlayStation 3 at this time, it is my 
      understanding that most of the PlayStation 2 library, including the 
      GTA games, runs pretty well on the older PlayStation 3's that have 
      Backwards Compatibility. It is unclear if Backwards Compatibility will 
      be re-implemented on the newer PS3 units (including the PS3 Slim).

  >>Xbox
    ****
      Although the Xbox version has better graphics, the animations tend to 
      be a bit choppy. The object and texture loading is much better than the 
      PS2 version which reduces sudden pop-ins.

      There are occasional hiccups when streaming from the disc which makes 
      you wonder if your machine has crashed. There are also massive 
      slowdowns at the end of a lot of missions.

      This is because the Xbox is reading the data off of the disc in such a 
      way that it interferes with the game (at least that is what I think it 
      is). Vice City also glitches out very bad if you happen to have an Xbox 
      with a Thompson drive (I had to trade in my initial Xbox because of 
      this problem).

      The best way to tell if you have the bad drive is when you load up the 
      game. If you can hear the title music but the screen remains black then 
      you have the bad drive. Microsoft used two other drives in addition to 
      the Thompson drive and only a drive replacement will solve this 
      particular problem.

| Xbox Version Differences \
0=====================================>

As I said at the start, there are also some tweaks that don't appear in the
PS2 version:

  >>"The Jump" method of getting to the other side before "Phnom Pehn '86" 
    (Ricardo Diaz) will NOT work on the Xbox version. However, you can still 
    use "The Bus" method of getting across.

  >>The posters in the window of Rock City (Downtown) have been replaced by a 
    poster of a Cousin Ed (from Iron Maiden) look-alike with the words "Jock 
    Star" on the bottom.

  >>A SWAT Enforcer can often be found at the Vice Point Police Station.

  >>A Securicar can often be found in front of El Banco Corrupto Grande near 
    Little Havana.

  >>A Police Cheetah can sometimes be found in the back area of the Little 
    Havana Police Station.

  >>A Bus can often be found by the building where Package [VPR-H98] is 
    located (the hangar east of the EIA Freight and Cargo Terminal (Seaplanes 
    Tours - near the Airport).

  >>The Love Fist limo will spawn in front of VROCK after completion of the 
    Love Fist missions.

  >>The Tear Gas Grenades that were in the back of the Washington Beach 
    Police Station in the PS2 versions have been replaced by standard 
    Grenades in the Xbox version.

  >>Any Washington you see on the street will always be white. You can't even 
    change the color by running it through a Pay 'N Spray. It will always 
    come out white. A glitch maybe?

  >>An Admiral will sometimes replace the Stretch at The Mansion. The only 
    place to get the Stretch for the Sunshine Autos car list is at the 
    Mansion. You will have to move the Admiral far away, or take it to 
    complete one of the car lists at Sunshine Autos, to make the Stretch 
    appear again.

  >>You CANNOT use the FBI Rancher in a Pay 'N' Spray in the Xbox version.

  >>And finally, there are NO sidewalk injuries in the Xbox version. In the 
    PS2 versions you can get hurt running off the sidewalk. It is an 
    irritating bug and a running gag amongst PS2 users.

| A.10.B. Xbox 360                                                         \
0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

"Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" works with the latest Backward Compatibility
updates for the Xbox 360 (you need the Hard Drive to play Original Xbox games
on the Xbox 360).

You can play Vice City in many different resolutions depending on your
monitor or HDTV setup. It looks and plays pretty good (although the main
title intro chugs badly).

However, the graphics are just as choppy on the Xbox 360 as it was on the
Original Xbox. As for the sound, I haven't played enough of Vice City on the
Xbox 360 to know for sure at this point if the sounds play any better (by
better I mean less glitchy).

Three bad things about playing Vice City on the Xbox 360:

  >>You can't do custom soundtracks like you could on the Original Xbox.
  >>You can't transfer game saves to an external memory card for safekeeping.
  >>You can't transfer games saves from the Original Xbox to the Xbox 360.

But one good thing about playing Vice City on the Xbox 360 is that the
White and Black buttons (from the Original Xbox controller) are replaced by
the Left and Right Buttons which are situated above the Left and Right
Triggers on the Xbox 360 pad.

Sadly, even if you use a USB-to-Xbox adapter, you cannot use an Xbox 360
controller with the Original Xbox.

| A.10.C. Xploder HDTV Player (PlayStation2) Data                          \
0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

Xploder HDTV Player is a disc that will allow PlayStation 2 owners to play
most of their games in Progressive Scan mode. Many games will work but some
of them will have issues.

"Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" works great in 480p mode. However, the main
title intro will be a little glitchy because of "line meshing issues".

This is because the intro is actually a "film" instead of using the game
graphics. It is to my understanding that XHDTV doesn't handle film based
stuff well and that results in the jittery looking intro.

But this is actually a minor problem since you can easily skip the opening
credits by pressing X. Once you get past the intro then all is good.

Because the graphics are designed for 480 vertical resolution, it is not
recommended that you put Vice City in any mode higher than 480p. The higher
resolution modes, like 720p, simply shoehorn the 480 graphics into the higher
end modes and tend to really squash the screen.

| A.10.D. HDLoader (PlayStation 2) Data                                    \
0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

This program, which has been floating around the internet for years, will let
you install your favorite games onto a hard drive (assuming you have an older
style PS2 "Fatty" (with a Network Adapter) or an early version of a PS2
"Slim" that has been modified to use a hard drive).

There are two variants of this program. The first variant is HDLoader which
is freeware and HDAdvance which is not. It is best to use HDLoader since it
is free and gets updated from time to time to improve compatibility and 
functionality.

HDLoader is best installed with a popular memory card exploit known as Free 
McBoot. It is how I am using HDLoader now (with a 160GB hard drive).

Vice City, from what I know, has always been compatible with the earliest
versions of HDAdvance and HDLoader.

Why install the game on a hard drive? For starters, less wear and tear on the
DVD-ROM mechanism (that is assuming if it still works - thankfully you can
install games onto the hard drive from a PC as an option).

But mainly it is for faster loading speeds. Listed below is the speed
difference with HDLoader in certain situations:

  >>After selecting the game in the HDLoader menu, it takes less than five 
    seconds to get to the logo screen since it doesn't do the PlayStation 2 
    splash screen.

  >>The initial load is a little faster.

  >>Entering/exiting buildings is faster.

  >>Loading up missions and cutscenes are a little faster.

  >>The "Welcome to Vice City" screen that pops up when you go between the 
    two halves of the city stays up less than half the time than it was when 
    you play off of the DVD-ROM.

  >>Loading up game saves is much faster.

  >>Object loading is much faster (no more hitting invisible objects - 
    objects that are "there" but you can't see because the graphic hasn't 
    loaded up yet).

Currently there is no reliable method to use HDLoader with HDTV Player to 
allow you to play Vice City off the hard drive in Progressive Scan mode.

Vice City, like most games, has its share of glitches and flaws. The vast 
majority of them are minor and some of them can be used to get around certain 
obstacles.

However, this section is dedicated to more serious problems that can get in
the way of things. Crash bugs and other problems that can seriously affect
gameplay are some of the things that are listed here.

They also have to appear during regular gameplay - meaning, no cheat codes. 
Plus, all serious bugs have to be verified. This means being able to make the 
bug happen again doing what you did before.

By listing the very serious bugs here, I'm trying to help gamers avoid
potential headaches that can negatively affect their experience.

| I.11.A. Detonator Bug (PS2 - Original Version)                           \
0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

On the southwest part of Viceport (in the big open area just east of the
Airport) you will find 8-Ball's Bomb Shop. Here you can set up your car with
a bomb just like you could do in "Grand Theft Auto III". Just park the car
and detonate it at your leisure from a safe distance.

When you exit the car then you will see the detonator icon in your weapon
slot. Press Circle to blow up the car.

But, when you press R2 or L2, then you will find that you are stuck on the
detonator - you can't switch to another weapon. This can be quite
distressing.

This also happens with the Remote Grenade weapon when you throw the grenade
and it switches to the Detonator part of the weapon.

The reason for this, based on several sources, has to do with the Infinite
Ammo Feature that you earn when you get 100% Completion. The Detonator weapon
was not designed to have any ammo and the program gets confused when it has
infinite ammo and it switches to the Detonator.

However, there are a couple of ways to get rid of the Detonator.....

  >>Get Wasted or Busted.

  >>Go through a metal detector at either the Leaf Links Golf Club or Escobar 
    International Airport to remove your weapons. Then go back and get all of 
    your weapons except the Detonator. Special thanks to 
    (Rippersprite[gnat]aol[snot]com) for the suggestion.

This bug has been fixed for the PS2 Double Pack and Haitian-Friendly Versions
and has never existed on either the Xbox and PC versions.

| I.11.B. Cherry Popper Glitch (PS2 Original Version)                      \
0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

One of the nastier bugs within the PS2 Original Version is the Cherry Popper
Glitch. When you open the property then you can save there just like any
other property in the game.

However, on occasion, your game save can become corrupted when you save there
thus forcing you to start your game over again. It doesn't do it every time
but each time you save there you're rolling the dice betting your game save
doesn't frag.

The best thing to avoid it is simply NEVER to save there in the first place.
Rockstar may have fixed this in the PS2 Double Pack Version.

I recently had another reader, Dragonfire, report that this bug may also
exist in the Xbox version. It is unclear if this was fixed in the Xbox
Haitian-Friendly version.

| I.11.C. Little Havana Glitch (PS2 and PC Versions)                       \
0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

While perusing the GameFAQs Vice City Message Board, I came across a topic
concerning the Little Havana Glitch started by one of the "gods" of Vice
City, robbman. Below is what he had to say on the topic (with a little
embellishment):

  "I think people don't know or don't think about this glitch when playing. 
   That's why I made this topic."

  "Later in the game you will be able to get the Little Havana Outfit. Though 
   there is a glitch which puts the Little Havana Outfit behind an invisible 
   wall.

  "All you need to do to avoid this glitch is to do the mission "Copland" 
   (Tommy Vercetti) before you do Avery Carrington's last mission "Two Bit 
   Hit".

Simple but effective. But, of course, if you follow the order of missions in
this guide, then you avoid this bug anyway. Still, not many people know about
(and how to) avoid this problem.

Glen T. Winstein wrote to me verifying that this bug also happens in the PC
version.

In addition, another reader, TownRanger, indicated to me that PC version
users may have to change the order of missions to avoid this bug:

  "However, I found out that in the PC version the invisible wall in front of 
   the Havana outfit icon still exist if you finish Copland before Two Big 
   Hit. The way I get rid of the glitch is to finish Copland before 
   Demolition Man."

With that done, let's move on to the most basic of functions......

[1] - If you hold down the Run button too long then you will tire and have to 
      rest before you can run again. Tapping the button in rhythm will serve 
      to help you run a little longer.

      The more times you run, the better your stamina will be. You can solve 
      the problem of tiring out by getting the Infinite Run feature which is 
      acquired by successfully completing the Ambulance Mission (detailed 
      later).

[2] - When doing this to motorcycles, depending on how close you are, then 
      you can either knock the rider off with a elbow to the face or 
      jump-kick them to the chest. If you jack a car that has a passenger, 
      and you are fast enough, then that passenger will ride with you (and 
      scream constantly) for as long as you drive the car (works with Police 
      vehicles too).

[3] - When holding a melee weapon (like a bat) or using your fist then the 
      Attack Button is used to swing at your target.

      When using Grenades or Tear Gas then the same button is used to throw 
      your weapon at the target. The longer you hold, the farther you throw.

      When holding a gun (like a Python [.357]) or a heavy weapon (like a 
      Rocket Launcher) then you use the Attack Button to shoot. Use the 
      Target Button in conjunction to aim at your enemy.

      When used with a camera (later on in the game) then the Attack Button 
      is used to take pictures.

[4] - When holding a gun then you hold down the Target Button target your 
      enemy. Use the Previous Weapon and Next Weapon Buttons to switch 
      between targets.

[5] - You can do this for precision walking (like on a steel beam) by helping 
      you "aim" your character in the direction you want him to face.

0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

As with all the other GTAs, there are plenty of cars to use in Vice City.
From junkers and gang cars to the fanciest sports cars. They can all be used
here.

In addition, the motorcycles are great for exploration, jumping and looking
cool on. Perhaps the single biggest advantage to the bikes is the fact that
you can shoot forward (using a sub-machine gun) while riding one. You can
then take down anyone that tries to cut in front of you (like a Police car).

However, there are a couple of disadvantages. First, it is much easier for a 
cop to knock you off and bust you than if he busts you in a car. Second, you 
can easily wipe out or get knocked off by other motorists if you're not 
careful.

But let's not forget the boats. They are part of the culture of Vice City.
From sailboats to speedboats they are all represented.

      with the Brake Button to perform a stoppie on a motorcycle.

[2] - You can also shoot forward while riding a motorcycle. Just press the 
      Attack button.

[3] - Your stopping power is increased when used in conjunction with the 
      Reverse button.

[4] - You can jump from a moving car when you need to make a quick exit. You 
      will hurt yourself a little bit when you do but that is much better
      then getting stuck in a flaming car that's about ready to blow up.

The Rhino is probably the single toughest vehicle in the game and is one of
the preferred vehicles to use in the Vigilante Mission (explained later in

You can acquire this vehicle during a 6-Star Wanted Rating and take it from
the soldiers or wait until after you've collected 90 Hidden Packages where
one will be unlocked near the front gate of Fort Baxter Air Base.

The Hunter appears at the northern part of Fort Baxter Air Base after you

Your Main Screen is where all of the action in Vice City takes place.

In the center of your screen is your main character, Tommy Vercetti. You use
your Left Analog Stick to move him around and the Right Analog Stick to
rotate and manipulate the camera when he is standing still. On the PC version
you use the keyboard and mouse to move Tommy and the camera around.

In the lower left corner of the Main Screen is the Radar. This is used to
help in finding your current position in the city, objectives, mission
strands and Safehouses.

In the upper right corner of the Main Screen you will find the game clock,
your Health, your Armor (when you have Armor), your money and the weapon or
item you are currently holding.

Special prompts will appear at either the upper left corner of the Main
Screen or at the bottom.

Every metropolis has a Police force and Vice City is no different. When
you do something bad near a Cop, like mugging a person, then one of the stars
below your Health and Armor status will light up indicating a Wanted Rating.

The Cops will then try to bust you. The more stars you have, the more
aggressive they will be.

There are several ways to get rid of a Wanted Rating:

  >>Hiding out somewhere for a bit (only works at 1-Star).
  >>Changing clothes (up to 2-Star).
  >>Getting a Police Bribe Icon (drops the level down a notch).
  >>Completing the current mission (if you get a rating during one).
  >>Getting Busted or Wasted.
  >>Driving a car (excluding rescue and most Police vehicles) into a Pay 'N'
    Spray.

There are six Wanted Rating levels. The higher you go, the more aggressive
the pursuit. Below are the Wanted Ratings and what you can expect:

0=======0
| 1-Star \
0=====================================>

  You are of mild interest to the Cops. They will chase you on foot and will 
  whack you with their nightsticks when close enough. They would rather not 
  be chasing you ("Don't make me run!", "I'd chase you if I didn't have too 
  many doughnuts!") but will be more than happy to bust you if you're stupid 
  enough to let them ("I hope you like the words 'pick up the soap'!"). 
  Hiding out somewhere for awhile will get rid of a 1-Star rating.

  If you want to amuse yourself for awhile then try this. When in a car and a 
  Cop is chasing you on foot then slow down to his foot speed and make him 
  run behind you. See how long you keep this up. A great way for him to work 
  off those doughnuts and stale coffee!

0=======0
| 2-Star \
0=====================================>

  Things get a bit more serious here. The number of Cops increase a bit and 
  they will start shooting you instead of whacking you with their clubs. You 
  can't wait things out this time but you can still switch out clothes to get 
  rid of a 2-Star Wanted Rating.

0=======0
| 3-Star \
0=====================================>

  At this level the Cops will start laying out spike strips (although 
  sometimes they lay them away from the the street and into nearby buildings) 
  to blow out your tires. A helicopter will start pursuing you and will shoot 
  at you if you stand still long enough for it to do so.

  And the Vice Squad, with their Crockett and Tubbs look-alikes, will now 
  join in the chase (in their high-priced Cheetahs).

  In a fit of inspiration I decided to jack a Police Cheetah during one of 
  my city wide rampages. I killed "Crockett" and took off in the car. As I 
  was heading to a nearby Pay 'N' Spray to get rid of my Wanted Rating so I 
  can save the car, I wondered to myself: "Wasn't there another guy that came 
  with this car? I didn't remember seeing him as I jacked the car."

  I clipped the corner of a building as I turned onto a street and it slowed 
  me down a bit. When this happened then a figure went flying out of the 
  passenger side of the car.

  It was "Tubbs"! He was in the car the whole time and didn't even make a 
  sound. And, at the first opportunity, he threw himself out of the vehicle.

  How sorry is this Police force anyway? In real life he would have put a gun 
  to my head before I even put on the seat belt. I wonder what his 
  performance review looked like afterwards.....

0=======0
| 4-Star \
0=====================================>

  Now the SWAT team joins in. They will try to blockade the road with their 
  Enforcers and rappel down from the helicopter ("Ohhhh! I'm really 
  scared!"). This is in addition to everything else being thrown at you. This 
  is the highest wanted level you can obtain while (officially) confined to 
  the Vice City Beach.

  I decided to jack a Police car during one of my rampages and wouldn't you 
  know it, I jacked one with a Cop still in the passenger seat so I got an 
  unwilling guest.

  I found out the biggest difference between Vice Squad Cops and regular Cops 
  - Vice Squad Cops are too cool to squeal like a little girl when their 
  Police car gets jacked unlike the poor Cop who took the ride with me. But I 
  had to give this guy credit - he didn't try to fling himself out the car at 
  a high rate of speed unlike his Vice Squad counterpart.

  He waited until I got smacked into a signal post (and came to a stop) 
  before exiting the vehicle. Then, before I had a chance to get away, he 
  calmly turned around and busted my sorry ass.....

0=======0
| 5-Star \
0=====================================>

  The FBI will now lend their assistance in hopes of bringing you down. They 
  will ride in large FBI Ranchers and carry four agents, all packing MP5s, 
  and they are not afraid to use them.

  The FBI Ranchers are nice vehicles to have and can be had once you kill the 
  agents nearby (assuming they don't kill you first - there's an easier 
  method listed in the "Advanced Tips" chapter later in the guide).

  You can max out at 5-Star after unlocking Starfish Island (After completion 
  of the mission "Guardian Angels" (Colonel Juan Garcia Cortez)).

0=======0
| 6-Star \
0=====================================>

  After making mincemeat of the Police force, including the FBI, then the 
  city will now call in the Army to deal with you. They will come in with 
  Rhinos and trucks and will mainly try to kill you (but they will arrest you 
  if the opportunity presents itself).

  The soldiers will kill you quickly with their M4's and barely getting 
  touched (while in a vehicle) by a Rhino will spell certain death. It will 
  be quite difficult to survive at this level for very long.

  You can achieve this maximum rating after completion of the mission "Rub 
  Out" (Ricardo Diaz).

In addition to all of the other cars you can take in Vice City you can also
use Police Vehicles. The main reason for acquiring one is for the Vigilante
Mission which is explained later in the guide. In addition, some have
additional features and bonuses that can help you.

Below is the list of Police Vehicles you can use in Vice City:

 \=========================================================================/

As noted above, you can drive a car or motorcycle, excluding Police and
rescue vehicles, into a Pay 'N' Spray to change the color of your vehicle, as
well as repair it, to get rid of Wanted Ratings at a cost of $100.

When you use the Pay 'N' Spray to get rid of your Wanted Ratings then the
Wanted Rating Stars will flash for a short time. While they are flashing, you
are then considered to be on "probation".

If you commit a crime, like running over someone, while the Wanted Rating
Stars are flashing, then your Wanted Rating will be reinstated.

There are five Pay 'N' Sprays in Vice City where you can go to get rid of
your Wanted Ratings and repair your vehicle:

  >>Vice Point (Vice City Beach).
  >>Ocean Beach (Vice City Beach).
  >>Little Haiti (Vice City Mainland).
  >>Viceport (Vice City Mainland).
  >>Sunshine Autos (Little Havana - Vice City Mainland).

    **NOTE: Although Sunshine Autos is a Asset Mission Property, you don't 
            have to buy it to use this facility.

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

If you get a Wanted Rating and the Cops end up catching you then you are
Busted. Any mission you were doing at the time will be Failed.

When you are Busted then you are sent to the nearest Police Station where you
will be processed (which takes six game hours) and released. You also lose
all weapons including your Body Armor.

In addition, you will be fined based on the number of Wanted Rating Stars you
have when you are Busted:

  >>1-Star: $100.
  >>2-Star: $200.
  >>3-Star: $400.
  >>4-Star: $600.
  >>5-Star: $900.
  >>6-Star: $1,500.

If you were in the middle of a mission when you were Busted then you will
also find a Taxi, with a blue arrow above it, nearby. This will take you back
near where you got the mission you were trying to do for a cost of $9.

There are four Police Stations in Vice City where you may find yourself if
you are Busted by the Cops:

  >>Downtown.
  >>Little Havana.
  >>Vice Point.
  >>Washington Beach.

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

If you do something to reduce your Health to zero, like being too close to an
explosion, getting shot up a lot, or drowning, then you will be Wasted. Any
mission you were doing at the time will be Failed.

When you are Wasted then you are sent to the nearest Hospital where you will
be treated (which takes six game hours), billed $100 and released. You also
lose all weapons including your Body Armor.

If you were in the middle of a mission when you were Wasted then you will
also find a Taxi, with a blue arrow above it, nearby. This will take you back
near where you got the mission you were trying to do for a cost of $9.

There are four Hospitals in Vice City where you may find yourself if you are
Wasted for any reason:

  >>Schuman Health Care Center (Downtown).
  >>West Haven Community Healthcare Center (Little Havana).
  >>Shady Palms Hospital (Vice Point).
  >>Ocean View Hospital (Ocean Beach).

These vehicles are great for exploration, jumping and looking cool on. And
all of bikes listed below can handle two people.

You can also do wheelies and stoppies with these vehicles but I have no
information on the best way to do them since I have not played around and
tried them.

Here is a rundown of all of the motorcycles:

0=======0
| Faggio \
0=====================================>

The Faggio is nothing more than a moped. It is the slowest bike and certainly
the un-coolest in the game. But, in the early going, it is the best vehicle
to have.

It is great for exploring Vice City and will get you from place to place much
faster than just running (and tiring and running and tiring.....).

It is also small enough to let you into small areas so you don't constantly
have to get off and get back on when exploring. Perfect for acquiring most of
the Hidden Packages.

This is a sleek looking dirtbike that is best used off-road. It makes a good
on-road vehicle for exploration purposes and is a very good platform for
doing drive-bys.

0==================0
| Angel and Freeway \
0=====================================>

These two bikes fall under the Harley-Davidson type category. Big and noisy,
these bikes have sluggish handling especially at high speed (there is a
reason they call these things "hogs").

The best of the Harley type bikes is the one I call the "Steel Angel" and can
only be used on the "Alloy Wheels Of Steel" (Big Mitch Baker) mission.

But racing or chasing isn't the reason you have one - it is to cruise and
look positively badass on. Ahh yes, the roar of the engine, the wind in your
hair, the bugs in your teeth.....

0========0
| PCJ-600 \
0=====================================>

The sleekest and fastest of all road vehicles. Has very good handling too.
This is best used for fast getaways and Unique Stunt Jumps (explained later).

When you finally get to Vice City Mainland, officially or unofficially, then
you can have access to the helicopters in the game. Look at the flying
controls setup, based on what version you have, and then practice basic
flying maneuvers.

I use the Clockwise / Counterclockwise controls to turn the chopper like I 
would turn a car. Whenever I fly I always switch to first person mode so I 
can better control the helicopter.

Take the time to practice basic flying, creeping over buildings, hovering 
and turning on a dime. When you get the hang of it then go and acquire any
Hidden Packages that require a helicopter to get at (more details in the
"Hidden Packages" chapters of the guide).

When you get at least eighty Hidden Packages, and unlock the Sea Sparrow,
then you may want to go to Starfish Island and get one so you can practice
strafing with the mounted Chaingun. That skill will definitely come in very
handy in some of the missions.

You can also bail out of a chopper while still in the air. Be warned though, 
it will leave a mark.

Here's a rundown of all of the helicopters:

0=========0
| Maverick \
0=====================================>

This plain chopper comes in several flavors depending on where you get one.

A Police version (green and white) can be found on the top of the Downtown 
Police station.

A TV station version (blue and white) can be found on the top of the VCN 
Building (TV station - where Package [DTN-H60] is).

A plain one (comes in several colors) can be found at the top of the Hyman 
Condo or at the top of The Mansion when you acquire the properties.

This chopper is a little slow but it will get you where you need to go.
However, it not very durable and can easily be destroyed.

0============0
| Sea Sparrow \
0=====================================>

This helicopter will spawn behind The Mansion on Starfish Island after
acquiring 80 Hidden Packages. This chopper is perhaps one of the most
versatile vehicles in the game.

In addition to being able to float on water the Sea Sparrow also has an
unlimited use Chaingun mounted underneath which is fired using the Fire
Chaingun button.

It also has what I call a "subtle auto-aim" feature which allows the gun to
lock-on to various targets near the center of the screen regardless of
whether you see the target or not. This makes the gun quite accurate and
powerful.

By unlocking the Sea Sparrow as soon as possible then you can use this
chopper in a wide array of missions, even some of the very early ones.

There is also a plain version of the Sparrow that will spawn in four
locations for the express purpose of the Chopper Checkpoint Missions
(unlocked after completion of the mission "Rub Out" (Ricardo Diaz)) plus one
that is used for the mission "Martha's Mug Shot" (Interglobal Films Asset).
Both are durable and maneuverable choppers.

0=======0
| Hunter \
0=====================================>

This Apache-like attack helicopter is spawned after you collect all 100
Hidden Packages and is situated at the north part of Fort Baxter Air Base.

This causes a problem because the soldiers that spawn there will shoot at
civilians (especially you) and you have to go through a maze of fences to get
to the chopper. The best way to get to it on foot is to first get a Police
Uniform Outfit because they won't shoot at law enforcement.

However, that opportunity won't happen until deep into the Main Story
Missions. But you can still get it, you just have to be fast and a little
lucky.

>>The Safe Way
  ************
    Wait until you have played through the Story Missions up to "Copland" 
    (Tommy Vercetti). There you can unlock the Police Uniform Outfit so you 
    can dress up as a Cop. The soldiers won't shoot you while you are in the 
    uniform so you can just stroll through the maze of fences to the Hunter.

>>The Not-So-Safe Way
  *******************
    Get a helicopter and and fly to Little Havana and turn west toward the 
    base. Fly low and, when you get over the wall, then jump out as close to 
    the Hunter as possible but without hitting it with your chopper. Get into 
    the Hunter as quickly as possible and fly out. Hopefully, you can do this 
    fast enough before the game spawns enough soldiers to shoot at you.

    If there are some soldiers and they shoot you (damaging the Hunter in the 
    process) then use the Health Code (in the "Advanced Tips And Information" 
    chapter) to fix it up. The odds of getting it this way is about 50-50 but 
    your odds will improve slightly if you try at night.

    However, a gentleman by the name of Leandro Nantes wrote me telling me 
    that 12:00 is also a good time to get the Hunter because that is when the 
    soldiers go to lunch (supposedly).

The first thing you will notice when flying the Hunter is that it is fast.
Perhaps a little too fast since you can easily overshoot any target that you
are trying to hit on the ground so you will have to adjust to its speed.

It is also much tougher than either the Maverick or Sea Sparrow but it can
still be shot down. Like the Sea Sparrow, the Hunter also has a Chaingun.

On the PS2 versions the Hunter's Chaingun is less accurate than the Sea
Sparrow's Chaingun. However, according to Rich Williams, the Hunter's
Chaingun is far more accurate and devastating on the PC version.

In addition to the Chaingun, the Hunter has Rockets which are launched with
the Attack button. The Rockets can really wreak havoc on the traffic down
below. Be careful not to be too close to trees or lightposts when firing
rockets - you may blow yourself up in the process.

Strangely enough, even though you are in a military helicopter, you can
listen to the radio stations while flying. Which is not a bad thing,
considering the time you might spend in the air doing the "Brown Thunder"
Vigilante Mission (later in the guide), you might as well have something good
to listen to.

One of my readers, Michael Furman, then wrote to me about listening to the
radio stations in the Hunter:

  "Interestingly enough, I've done my time serving our nation in the US Army, 
   and my job was actually taking care of those bad birds, the Apaches. 
   Although you might find it strange, they actually DO get radio stations, 
   and the pilots DO actually listen to them...helps calm their nerves =), or 
   so they say, lol."

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Listed below are vehicles that can be of most use depending on certain 
situations:

0=================================0
| Comet, Banshee, Stinger, Phoenix \
0=======================================================================>

  These sports cars can be used to get from one place to another really fast 
  and are fairly durable. They can take a few whacks from Police cars and 
  other vehicles before succumbing.

  The Cheetah can also be used but is a bit more fragile and the Infernus can 
  only take a couple of hits before exploding.

0==========================================================0
| Taxi, Washington, Admiral, Sentinel, Hermes, Cuban Hermes \
0=======================================================================>

  These are middle of the road vehicles. Not too fast, not too slow and are 
  durable vehicles. These cars can also be used to transport passengers (such 
  as in the mission "Cannon Fodder" (Umberto Robina)).

0======0
| Coach \
0=======================================================================>

  This long silver bus is slow and not as durable as one might think. But it 
  is still a very useful vehicle because of its size and shape. It's large 
  size makes it perfect for road-blocking in various missions such as "Psycho 
  Killer" (Love Fist).

| I.21.A. The (Almost) Everything-Proof Admiral                            \
0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

One of the most interesting and useful vehicles in the game is what is known 
as the Everything-Proof Admiral (aka EP-Admiral). The Admiral is a car that 
resembles a BMW with decent speed, handling and durability (see above).

This very special Admiral makes an appearance in the mission "Guardian 
Angels" (Colonel Juan Garcia Cortez). This white Admiral is the car that
Ricardo Diaz drives up in during the mission.

In one of the earlier versions of the guide I had mentioned that you had to 
fail the mission to get the Admiral. But a gentleman by the name of Matthew
Dean informed me that this wasn't necessary:

  "Sorry to inform you you can acquire this admiral by passing the mission as 
   well. After giving the money to diaz, you get the mission passed display. 
   If you go back towards the street and make a left towards the traffic 
   light on ocean drive the bullet proof admiral is there sitting under the 
   traffic light. (I did this a few times in a few different games to make 
   sure it worked)..."

And, sure enough, it works like a charm in both the PS2 and Xbox versions. 
Glen T. Winstein wrote to me letting me know that you can get the EP-Admiral
without failing the mission in the PC version:

  "I just learned, from someone named mgssnakes of the PC VC message boards 
   of gamefaqs, that you can get the EP Admiral in the PC Vice City at the 
   end of "Guardian Angels." When Tommy returns the briefcase to Diaz, have 
   him enter the pink shaft of light from the north facing south. During the 
   cutscene, have the keys pressed to have Tommy run, so he'll run south as 
   soon as the game will let him. THEN when he goes south and around the 
   corner to the east, the Admiral will be waiting. I just tried it, and it 
   works."

I also had another reader who goes by Mr. Spock write to me that it doesn't
always appear when you complete the mission but you can increase your chances
of getting the EP-Admiral by parking a car in front of Diaz's car before you
give him his money (the parked car will disappear in the cutscene).

When you drive around in the EP-Admiral, you will find that it doesn't feel
any more different that a regular Admiral. But, when you smack it into
something, then you will notice that it has no damage.

You can smack it into everything and not even get a scratch. You can shoot it
up with guns and even hit it with a Rocket Launcher with no effect on it
whatsoever. Even the tires are bulletproof.

So, as you can see, this Admiral is very special indeed (make sure that you
have either the Ocean Beach or El Swanko Casa properties before trying to get
the Admiral so you can save it).

However, it is NOT truly everything-proof. When you first get it you will
find that the tires are bullet and spike strip proof.

But, when you place it in a garage and let the door close, then the tire
status changes. When you open the garage door again and use a Sniper Rifle,
you can blow out the tires.

However, because of the overall toughness of the car, then the chances of
either the bad guys or the Cops shooting out your tires are very low (almost
zero).

In addition, there are four ways to actually destroy the car:

  >>Flipping it over.
  >>Dunking it into the water.
  >>Getting hit by a Rhino.
  >>Getting shot up by the Haitian "super weapons" during "Cannon Fodder"
    (Umberto Robina)

During the previous revisions I managed to use this car in a lot of missions
and some of the strategies have been revised to take advantage of the
EP-Admiral.

There are seven places in Vice City that you can purchase starting at the
beginning of the game called Asset Properties. Each of these places serve as
save points and each property bought will inch you closer to 100% Completion.
Some of these properties have additional features, like garages.

At the beginning of the game you have the Ocean View Hotel as your Safehouse.
As you gain more money then you can then start purchasing the other Asset
Properties.

These Asset Properties are listed in each half of Vice City.

0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

There are nine additional Asset Properties around town that have a red
Purchase Icon in front of them that can't do anything with in the early part
of the game.

After completion of the mission "Shakedown" (Tommy Vercetti) then you can
start purchasing these businesses which will allow you to amass more wealth
and climb closer to 100% Completion. These businesses also have their own
missions and tasks, called Asset Missions, that need to be completed before
you can make money off of them.

When you complete the Asset Missions for a business then you will see a Money
Icon appear in front of that business. Money will accumulate over time until
a designated maximum is reached.

Just go up to the icon and collect your money to add to your wealth. In
addition, each Asset Mission Property is also a save point just like the
other properties you have bought.

There are a total of ten Asset Mission Properties and the details for these
places are listed after completion of the mission "Shakedown" (Tommy
Vercetti).

In "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" you have the option to change clothes
throughout the game. Not only will this change your look it will also
eliminate a Wanted Rating (up to 2-Star).

It will also change how you appear in the cutscenes. Most of the outfits are
unlocked after doing certain missions.

Here is the complete list of Outfits:

0==============0
| Street Outfit \
0=====================================>

  Unlocked: After "The Party" (Ken Rosenberg).
  Where: Ocean View Hotel, Hyman Condo and The Mansion.
  Description: Acid washed jeans and a blue tropical print shirt. This is the 
               outfit you will probably end up wearing the most throughout 
               the game. Can be considered the default outfit.

0==============0

0=====================0
| Little Havana Outfit \
0=====================================>

  Unlocked: After "Two Bit Hit" (Avery Carrington).
  Where: Little Havana Streetwear (Little Havana).

Below are some tips and additional information that will be of benefit to 
you:

0================0
| The Health Code \
0==================================================================>

  Even though you can do everything in this guide without the use of any 
  cheat codes, I felt that I should provide this one to give the user a 
  little bit of flexibility.

  There are several areas of the game that can possibly frustrate gamers and 
  this code can be of use there. There are also a few areas where I actually 
  encourage its use (like "Brown Thunder"). This code will NOT corrupt save 
  files or cause a percentage lockdown (I can personally confirm that).

    >>(PS2) - R1 Button, R2 Button, L1 Button, Circle Button, Left (D-Pad),
              Down (D-Pad), Right (D-Pad), Up (D-Pad), Left (D-Pad),
              Down (D-Pad), Right (D-Pad), Up (D-Pad)

    >>(Xbox) - Right Trigger, Black Button, Left Trigger, B Button,
               Left (D-Pad), Down (D-Pad), Right (D-Pad), Up (D-Pad),
               Left (D-Pad), Down (D-Pad), Right (D-Pad), Up (D-Pad)

    >>(PC) - Aspirine

0==========================0
| No Wanted Rating Exploits \
0==================================================================>

  Glen T. Winstein relayed me an idea that was tried by another gamer named 
  GTA_Loc. It seems that in two of the missions, "Rub Out" (Ricardo Diaz) and 
  "Copland" (Tommy Vercetti), have what is known as a No Wanted Rating 
  Exploit.

  Basically, at a certain point within those two missions, you will not be 
  able to generate a Wanted Rating regardless of how much chaos you create. 
  Useful for jacking up your Criminal Ranking or robbing the Stores. I will 
  provide more details within those two missions.

0===================0
| Righting a Vehicle \
0==================================================================>

  Did you know that if you put a vehicle on its side that you can put the 
  vehicle back on its tires? If the vehicle is on its right side then move 
  the Left Analog Stick (PS2, Xbox) to the right or press the Turn Right key 
  (PC).

  Move the stick to the left or press the Turn Left key (PC) if it is on its 
  left side. This works best with boxy vehicles (like the Ambulance). You can 
  also do this with a car but you will have to be fast.

0================0
| Quick Targeting \
0==================================================================>

  When locking onto targets with a gun (like a Python [.357]) while holding 
  down Target then you can use the Next and Previous Weapon buttons to switch 
  targets. You can also let go of the Target button and quickly press it 
  again to pick up another target (after you kill the previous one).

0====================================0
| Entering Leaf Links Golf Club Early \
0==================================================================>

  Here is an easy way to enter Leaf Links Golf Club early, and with all of 
  your weapons, prior to the mission "Four Iron" (Avery Carrington).

  Get an Ambulance and drive to the locked gate. What you need to do is put 
  the vehicle against the bridge railing which should be to your right.

  The front of the Ambulance should be almost at the locked gate. Push the 
  Ambulance against the railing if it is not close enough. Climb onto the 
  vehicle then jump over the bridge railing to enter the Golf Club.

0==================0
| Air Base Shortcut \
0==================================================================>

  If you are in Downtown or Little Haiti and you need to get to Fort Baxter 
  Air Base then there is a shortcut that will help.

  Go to the City Scrap area. Just before you get to the entrance then hang a 
  left at the road before it and you should cross a small red railroad 
  bridge.

  Go right and then left and stay close to the edge. Eventually, you will 
  end up behind the Airport billboards.

  Go right and, where the signs end and the tunnel begins, the ground and the 
  top of the tunnel are at the same level. Go on top of the tunnel and go 
  right toward Fort Baxter Air Base.

  Either jump off the tunnel onto the road or stay left so you can get level 
  with the road (after turning left where the wall ends).

0==================0
| Chopper Free Zone \
0==================================================================>

  Did you know that if you are flying a chopper and at 3-Star Wanted Rating 
  (or above) that you can make the Police helicopter go away if you land on 
  the roof of the North Point Mall?

  However, the Police helicopter will re-appear if you fly away from the 
  mall.

  There is a second chopper-free zone at the east house on the north part 
  of Prawn Island (where you can find Package [PRI-H2]).

  A third chopper-free area can be found at the rooftop of the EIA Main 
  Terminal Building at Escobar International Airport (credit for this find 
  goes to Phil Gulliford).

0================================0
| Render Spike Strips Ineffective \
0==================================================================>

  When in a Police Vehicle then press Activate Vehicle Mission to turn on 
  Vigilante Mode and quickly press Activate Vehicle Mission again to turn it 
  off.

  After that then you are impervious to the spike strips that the Cops lay 
  down at 3-Star Wanted Rating and above. This will also keep them from 
  shooting out your tires as well.

  This will only last for as long as you stay in the Police Vehicle and 
  won't transfer to another car if you leave it.

  Sadly, this won't work in Firetruck, Ambulance and Taxi vehicles. Credit 
  for this nifty idea goes to Shnangyboos who posted his find on 
  GameFAQs.com (GTA: Vice City forum).

0=============0
| Prostitution \
0==================================================================>

  Like in "Grand Theft Auto III", you can pick up a hooker and go above your 
  maximum of 100 health to 125.

  But, if you do the Pizza Delivery Mission to get your health maximum bumped 
  up to 150 and you pick up a prostitute, then your health will DROP down to 
  125 so sometimes sex isn't always a good thing.

  However, it is worth doing on occasion because of how Tommy Vercetti talks 
  then you can hear what is going on in the car. Hilarious.

  And, by the way, when you pick up a hooker, then be a nice chap and warn 
  her - you pack a Python and you know how to use it.....

0==========================================0
| Getting The Police Cheetah or FBI Rancher \
0==================================================================>

  Both the Police Cheetah and the FBI Rancher are nice cars to have and also 
  to use in Vigilante Missions. However, getting them can be a pain in the 
  butt because of the difficulty of getting rid of the Cops to get the 
  vehicle and getting rid of the Wanted Ratings all the while keeping them 
  from destroying the car.

  There are two methods to acquiring these Police Vehicles:

    >>You can run for a little bit away from a cluster of Ranchers (and 
      Cheetahs) and turn around. The agents will be gone but the vehicles are 
      still there to get with no resistance (a leftover trick from "Grand 
      Theft Auto III").

    >>You can jack either a Cheetah or Rancher before they can come to a 
      complete stop (the other riders will jump out while you are removing 
      the driver).

  If you thought "Tubbs" had it bad dealing with his boss (see the "Law 
  Enforcement" chapter - 3-Star) then imagine four highly embarrassed, and 
  supposedly well trained and heavily armed, FBI agents trying to explain to 
  their superiors how they let a street-wise punk with a plain six-shooter 
  take one of the agency's vehicles from them. Imagine indeed.....

  However, if you mistime your carjack attempt, then you will either be shot 
  up pretty bad when they exit the vehicle or be knocked down for a quick, 
  and embarrassing, bust.

0===================0
| "Stuff of Legends" \
0==================================================================>

  This is a neat little side excursion you can try once you get your hands 
  on the Hunter. This is purely optional since this has nothing to do with 
  your completion percentage.

  You may want to wait until you have opened Sunshine Autos first so you can 
  place a car (any car) into one of the garages across from the Pay 'N' 
  Spray there so it would be very easy to get rid of your Wanted Rating.

  If you look at the very bottom of your stat sheet then you will notice 
  something that has to do with your media rating called "Highest media 
  attention". It has a score and a ranking.

  Throughout most of the game it is usually pretty low. But I decided to 
  raise it to see how far I could go. One of the ways to raise it is to do a 
  full scale assault on Vice City (blow up and kill everything you see).

  Fly around and destroy as much as you can and, when you look at your stats, 
  then you will see your ranking increase along with your media score. You 
  will go from local media attention (live TV) to national (UFA Today) and 
  then to global (world crisis).

  After that is your maximum rating: "Stuff of Legends". My highest media 
  score is 2,520.

  When you decide to quit then fly to Sunshine Autos then get into your 
  stored car and go into the Pay 'N' Spray to get rid of your Wanted Rating. 
  When you are done with that then save your game to keep your media score.

  Below is the complete listing of media attention as was found in the 
  "american.gxt" file on the PS2 Vice City Disc:

    >>Ignored
    >>Boring
    >>Vaguely interesting
    >>Local paper Page 7
    >>Front page of local paper
    >>Vice Courier Page 2

| Rotating Moon \
0==================================================================>

  Not really useful but a neat trick nevertheless. When in a helicopter and 
  it is nighttime then go into first person mode and face the moon. Then tilt 
  the helicopter right then left. You will notice that the moon will rotate 
  with you.

0==========================0
| Nighttime Water Searching \
0==================================================================>

  If you want to see what is in the water then the best time to do that is 
  nighttime. When flying over the water in a helicopter, you will notice that 
  you can see things in the water much better than you could during the 
  daytime.

  It almost looks like there are lights in the water to illuminate all the 
  stuff there like the rocks and sunken ships (and fish.....and dead 
  bodies.....).

0=================0
| Food For Thought \
0==================================================================>

  When you go into the North Point Mall at either the west or east ends then 
  you will see the food court. There are four different fast food places 
  where you can get food (or what passes for it).

  But you have to be below 100 health to activate the pink circles at each 
  place. And regardless of your health maximum they will only bump it back to 
  100.

  They also cost a little money but, unless you are really broke, this should 
  not be an issue.

| Some Interesting Trivia \
0==================================================================>

  One of my readers, Bragon (from Thailand), gave me a couple of bits of 
  interesting trivia that I will now share.....

    ++About The Suzy Suxxx Movie Title "BITE"
      ***************************************
        In French, "bite" means "dick" (pronounced "beat").

    ++About A Movie Poster In Phil's Bedroom (In His Trailer)
      *******************************************************
        "Chicks 'N Guns" was the title of the video watched by Robert DeNiro 
        and Samuel Jackson at the beginning of Quentin Tarentino's movie 
        "Jackie Brown".

| "Hook The Hooker" or Getting Tommy A REAL Girlfriend \
0==================================================================>

  I had a reader by the name of Restick write to me with the following 
  trick.....

    "Hi, I have read many FAQ's and have never seen the Hooker Trick. I call 
     it "Hook The Hooker". Do the races from sunshine auto, (airport one is 
     the best) and when you get there before starting the race, check each 
     car to see which one has the Hooker driving. She is always in the same 
     car. Get in line and then start the race and stay with her. At the end 
     of the race she will take off. Catch her and do a drive by on her. Her 
     car will come to a stop and as it does, pull along side so when she 
     gets out she will walk up to your car and get in. Now she won't charge 
     you anything for being with you, plus, she will follow you anywhere you 
     go. Take her for a helo ride, motorcycle ride or the like. You can also 
     enter the race again with her as a passager, and if you have a 4 door 
     car, do the same stunt and pick up a total of 3 to follow u all over 
     vice city. Sometimes though when u do the drive by, she may not stop. 
     That's ok. Go back and do the race again. Believe me, you will get her."

  I verified this trick on both the PS2 and Xbox versions and Glen T. 
  Winstein verified it on the PC version.

  You can actually make things easier on yourself if you don't collect any 
  checkpoints during the Airport race. Partway through the race the cars will 
  stop being aggressive and slow down.

  They will even go single file through the remainder of the race. This will 
  make it very easy to stay with the hooker's car so you can get her for 
  Tommy.

0=====================0
| Good Samaritan Bonus \
0==================================================================>

  I had a gentleman named Abhisheik Dahiya point this out to me in one of my 
  earlier revisions.....

    "If you see a Cop chasing a guy (you can easily see this happening at 
     the mall all the time) and you run to the guy the Cop is chasing and 
     knock him down WITH ONLY YOUR FIST, NO GUN, do it in front of the Cop 
     so he can arrest him. You get a Good Samaritan Bonus 50$."

  Another reader, Tim Williams, had some more information regarding the Good 
  Samaritan Bonus.....

    "Further to the note on the good samaritan bonus, if you keep on chasing 
     the criminal, or help the Copper beat him up until he dies, you can 
     then kick the corpse, if you do this, you will get paid the good 
     samaritan bonus every time you hit him while he's alive, and every time 
     you mutilate his corpse.  This can't be done forever as the body will 
     fade out, but it's a quick was to make a few hundred if you need it 
     early on in the game."

  This can be done on all versions.

| Bus Driving \
0==================================================================>

  If you have a Coach then you can actually pick up passengers at bus stops. 
  Each passenger will give you $5 and will exit when you stop at another bus 
  stop. Thanks to Rich Williams for that information.

  And Andr Dienske come up with this observation:

    "After I read that you can pick up passengers with a bus (5 dollars per 
     passenger), I tried it. Actually, there is a complete circular route 
     (clockwise) of bus stops all over the island. Completing it doesnt give 
     you any extras, but I found out one amusing thing.

     Becoming rich as a bus driver. At the bus stop next to the North 
     Shopping Mall, a lot of people usually spawn. While I was parked there, 
     I got a phone call and left the game for a while. When I came back, I 
     saw a crowd of people around the bus, trying to get in. And it never 
     stops: I saw over a hundred people disappear in the bus. Later I tried 
     letting the bus stay there while I was asleep. I woke up a rich man and 
     bought me some property all over the island."

0==============================0
| When Forced to Change Weapons \
0==================================================================>

  I had a reader, Tow Wang, come up with following observation and solution
  concerning certain missions (on the PC version):

    "The following missions have an annoying feature in common: they force 
     you to pick up a weapon that may be less effective than the one you 
     already have, especially if you have collected a lot of hidden packages 
     before doing the main story missions...

       >C1. "Treacherous Swine" (Colonel Juan Garcia Cortez)
             Forces you to pick up: chainsaw
       >C3. "Guardian Angels" (Colonel Juan Garcia Cortez)
             Forces you to pick up: Ruger
       >D4. "Supply & Demand" (Ricardo Diaz)
             Forces you to pick up: Assault Rifle that triggers a bug
       >AC4. "Check Out at the Check In" (Assassination Contact)
              Forces you to pick up: Sniper Rifle
       >PCA1. "Gun Runner" (Phil Cassidy's Asset)
               Forces you to pick up: Mac-10, M4, M60 and one I can't 
               remember
       >AP3. "Dirty Lickin's" (Auntie Poulet)
              Forces you to pick up: Sniper Rifle

     In all these missions, if you don't want to lose your original weapons 
     and ammo, go drop everything at EIA (which I confirmed works) or at the 
     golf club (have not tried yet). Even if a mission forces you to pick up 
     a "Sniper Rifle" with only a few bullets, you can always go back to 
     those security checkpoints and re-get the previous weapons you had 
     (e.g. the better PSG-1), and in the process all the ammo you had 
     amassed gets restored."

After the events of "Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories", here is what
has happened between then and now.....

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

The Police are still baffled about the sudden rise and disappearance of crime
lord Victor Vance in 1984. He came and went so quickly that they were not
able to get a lot of information on him.

The fact that he kept out of the public eye for the most part made him even
more mysterious to law enforcement. Even those who worked for him in the
short time he was in Vice City didn't know much about him.

Victor's younger brother, Lance Vance, however, was far more flamboyant and
outgoing. As a result, the Police have far more info on him than on Victor.

Hopefully, this information will lead them back to Victor at some point since
they feel that he may one day return to Vice City.

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

Victor Vance is also implicated in the theft of a very powerful attack
chopper from Fort Baxter Air Base. This, of course, was extremely
embarrassing to military brass considering that Victor Vance was once a
soldier there.

This has also led to toward increased hostilities to civilians because of
heightened security. Especially to those who happen to be wandering just
outside of the base.

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

When the infamous Mendez Brothers, who were revealed to be notorious drug
dealers, were murdered in 1984, law enforcement moved in to take over their
houses. In addition to the house on the north side of Prawn Island they also
owned the two neighboring houses to keep nosy people from moving in.

However, the brothers have powerful family outside the country and they have
been fighting law enforcement over the ownership of the properties. While
this has been going on, the houses have fallen into disrepair and now street
gangs have taken them over and using them for their hideout.

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

The brothers were also leasing a large building on the west side of Downtown
known as the Mendez Building. But the building had to be demolished in late
1984 because of extensive damage near the top of the building suffered during
an attack which resulted in the death of Diego Mendez.

According to law enforcement, the Hunter that was taken from Fort Baxter Air
Base was used in this attack thus implicating Victor Vance as the attacker
(in addition to his other crimes). Almost as quickly as the Mendez Building
went down another, smaller, building sprang up.

However, the speed of construction has raised questions of the new building's
safety so it remains mostly empty at this time.

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

After Victor Vance's disappearance then law enforcement aggressively moved in
and took over his businesses. In a show of force they quickly destroyed all
of his businesses and either sold the land to businesses or gave it to Vice
City for future development.

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

One of those properties was right next to The Fairgrounds in Vice Point. The
constant gang warfare chased away many customers.

Even with law enforcement taking over this gang property The Fairground was
forced to close in late 1984. The Fairgrounds was a popular tourist
attraction where people would go and have some fun on the bumper cars or the
ferris wheel.

Shortly after the closure then Avery Carrington, one of Vice City's prominent
real estate developers, bought The Fairground property and started a new
development project known as Fairground Point. He also wanted the gang
property but law enforcement sold it to Spand Express as quickly as they
confiscated it.

According to sources close to Mr. Carrington, Avery was most unhappy with
that sale because he also had an eye on the property.

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

Near the end of the 1984 hurricane season a major hurricane came ashore near
the Vice City area. While not an extremely powerful storm, it did do
considerable damage which included severe damage to The Waterhouses area,
destroying the wooden bridge that connected Little Havana to the Fort Baxter
Air Base area and knocking over the huge "Rockstar" sign off of The Rockstar
Building.

          <0++++++++++++++++++++++X##***##X++++++++++++++++++++++0>

In 1985 the Civil Asset Forfeiture Impound, which was on the west side of
Viceport, moved to a location outside of Vice City leaving a huge vacancy.
However, 8-Ball's Bomb Shop left the Downtown area and moved into one of the
buildings vacated by CAFI in late 1985.

Based on the road signs above the bridges that connect the two major areas of
Vice City with one another, the area that is often referred to as the East
Side is actually called Vice City Beach.

On the eastern half of Vice City Beach is the large beach which is very
popular with the tourists and the large hotels they stay at while in Vice
City. Prawn Island, situated at the north part of the Vice City area between
Vice City Beach and Mainland, is home to a movie studio and some luxury
homes.

Vice Point is home to the largest shopping mall in Vice City as well as many
large hotels and apartments. Leaf Links Golf Club is where to rich go to play
golf and hang out. Ocean Beach is home to the Vice City Marina, where one can
park a boat, and The Lighthouse, an important and historical landmark.

However, due to the threat of a major hurricane offshore, all of the bridges
to Vice City Mainland have been closed so you cannot go there for the
foreseeable future.

| Vice City: 1986 \
0=====================================>

After a fifteen year stretch in prison, Tommy Vercetti is finally released
and is sent down to Vice City on behalf of the Forelli family, based in
Liberty City, to expand their criminal empire. Tommy's first task is to
acquire some cocaine using Sonny Forelli's money to get things going in Vice
City.

With the help of Ken Rosenberg, lawyer/contact for the Forelli family, he
meets a supplier and begins the transaction. Of course, things don't go as
planned (otherwise there wouldn't be a game here, right?) as Tommy and his
group are ambushed.

Fortunately, Tommy barely makes it out alive with the help of Ken who speeds 
them both to safety. After the two of you make it back to Ken's office then
you are then free to move about.

At this point you are instructed to go to your hotel in Ocean Beach. Grab
either the nearby Faggio or Admiral and head to the hotel.

As you enter the hotel then you will see the pink circle at the base of the
stairs which you have to enter to get to your room and talk to "An Old
Friend". Sonny is pissed at you having lost the money and the coke and you
promise him that you will get both the money and the merchandise as well as
the ermm...limbs of the people responsible for this mess.

After the cutscene ends then save your game and go back up to your room.

As you look around, you realize that you got a nice little place here at the
Ocean View Hotel. However, most people rarely go back here when they finally
have access to Vice City Mainland and The Mansion.

In doing so they miss out on most of the subtle decor changes that occur as
the game progresses. This stuff is also listed in PSM magazine (issue #67,
pages 86-87).....

  >>Three of your weapon icons (Flamethrower, Mini-Gun and Rocket Launcher)
    will appear here when you get the necessary Hidden Packages to unlock
    them.

  >>A Rafael's garment bag will appear on your closet after completion of the 
    mission "The Party" (Ken Rosenberg).

  >>A Shooter of the Month trophy will appear on top of the TV after 
    completion of the mission "The Shootist" (Malibu Club Asset). Use the 
    Sniper Rifle scope to read the wording.

  >>A duffel bag with money (and bundles of money strewn about) will appear
    on the bed after completion of the mission "Hit The Courier" (Vice City 
    Printing Works Asset) (thanks to magnamerik for that bit of info).

  >>A hockey mask will appear on the coffee table after completion of the 
    mission "The Job" (Malibu Club Asset).

  >>Three barrels of Boomshine will appear in the corner near the minibar
    after completion of the mission "Boomshine Saigon" (Phil Cassidy's 
    Asset).

  >>Two of Candy Suxxx's movie posters ("Bite" and "Closer Encounters") will
    appear on the wall after completion of the mission "G-Spotlight" 
    (Interglobal Films Asset).

  >>A Hidden Package, broken in two, will appear on the minibar at some point 
    during the game. Also on the bar is two small piles of white powder. As 
    it turns out, the Hidden Packages were really just a fancy, and sneaky, 
    way of getting cocaine into Vice City.

 \=========================================================================/

To start, I'm going to do as much of the off-story stuff as possible before 
doing the first official mission, "The Party" (Ken Rosenberg).

A lot of this stuff can be done in any order but doing some things in a 
certain sequence will be of most benefit to you (like doing the Ambulance
Mission (for Infinite Run), the Pizza Delivery Mission (for 150 health) and
the Firetruck Mission (for the Fireproof Feature) before doing any Rampages).

After looking around then leave your hotel room and begin your exploration of
the city starting with.....

Although "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" has an in-game map, it doesn't have a
lot of detail. Therefore, it is important to explore each region to know it
better and find the landmarks that are used to help locate items, Rampages
and Unique Stunt Jumps.

To this end I have constructed tour guides for each region. Starting at your
current Safehouse or other major landmark I guide you through the region and
point out all of the landmarks.

Many of the names for these landmarks are pretty straightforward, some are
referenced from the official strategy guide, some are made up to give them a
name to help find other objects and some are referenced from the prequel game
"Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories".

With that said, let's go on.....

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Now, that we're here, let's have a tour of this area of Vice City starting
with the:

  >>Ocean View Hotel
    ****************
      Location: (Southeast) Ocean Beach.
      Map: (G-5).
      Notes: This quaint hotel is the first Safehouse you get in Vice City. 
             Some of your Weapon Icons will spawn here during the course of 
             the game.

From here, head south and stop at the road curve that goes west. Look east
from here to find:

  >>The Lighthouse
    **************
      Location: (Southeast) Ocean Beach.
      Map: (H-5).
      Notes: This is an historical and important landmark used to keep ships 
             from getting lost near the shores of Vice City.

Now, go east, go through the next three-way intersection and stop at the next
three-way intersection. At the northeast corner of this intersection is the:

  >>Ocean Heights Apartments
    ************************
      Location: (South) Ocean Beach.
      Map: (G-4).
      Notes: This tall red and white building is an Asset Property you can 
             buy for $7,000. It will serve as a Safehouse and has a car 
             garage for storing a vehicle.

From here, go forward and stop at the next intersection ahead. At the
northwest corner of this intersection is the:

  >>Ocean Beach Church
    ******************
      Location: (South) Ocean Beach.
      Map: (G-4).
      Notes: This is one of the churches where the religious can congregate 
             and pray.

Now continue forward and go along the road curve going north then stop at
the next three-way intersection. To your left you will see a large white
building which is part of:

  >>Vice City Marina
    ****************
      Location: (West) Ocean Beach.
      Map: (G-4).
      Notes: This place has two large piers where one can dock a luxury or 
             fishing boat. The large white building also has an underground 
             parking garage located at the south end.

And in the water directly south of the Vice City Marina are:

  >>The Waterhouses
    ***************
      Location: (Southwest) Ocean Beach.
      Map: ([G, H]-4).

             players in Vice City's crime scene, who were killed in 1984. The 
             house has remained largely abandoned as law enforcement and 
             relatives of the brothers fight over the estate. This house, and 
             the two nearby houses, also owned by the brothers, have been 
             overrun by street gangs who make it their hideout.

Although I went over these properties during the tour, I felt that a detailed

| II.7. Weapons and Other Helpful Items                              [WOHT] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Weapons are the tools of the trade for any professional criminal. There are 
thirty two different weapons, in ten different categories, that can be found
and used to create mayhem and abuse.

However, you can only have one of each type at a time so you can only carry a
maximum of nine weapons (one slot is used for a Camera later in the game).

I also had a reader, Rob Owens, write to me with additional real world data
on some of the the weapons used in the game. Some of the weapons listed here
go by more than one name depending on what version of the game you have. 

The description of the weapons and items are listed in this chapter and their
locations revealed in each major area of Vice City.

The information on each weapon is broken down as follows (if applicable):

  --Appears after: This tells you what mission you have to complete before 
                   this weapon can be bought from Ammu-Nation or other 
                   locations (if applicable).
  --Cost: How much the weapon costs and where to purchase it.
  --Notes: Information on the weapon.

Now for the weapons and items list:

0================0
| Slot 1 - Camera \
0===============================================>

  There is only one mission in the game in which this is used, "Martha's Mug 
  Shot" (Interglobal Films Asset). This is not a weapon but it has it's own 
  slot so you can use the item during that particular mission.

0==============0
| Slot 2 - Fist \
0===============================================>

  >>Fist
    ****
      Your standard bare fist.

  >>Brass Knuckles
    **************
      This is used to increase your fist damage by adding a piece of metal to
      make your fist more powerful. Can be also acquired from the guards at 
      The Malibu Club.

0=======================0
| Slot 3 - Melee Weapons \
0===============================================>

  These weapons are used for pounding, stabbing and slicing your enemies. 
  There are quite a lot of choices here for the discriminating psychotic:

  >>Nightstick
    **********
      This can be acquired from a dead Cop since he won't be needing it 
      anyway (or the locker room of the Washington Beach Police Station). 
      Perfect for use in playing "Bad Cop, Naughty Prisoner".....

  >>Golf Club
    *********
      Can be acquired in or around Leaf Links Golf Club (usually by mugging 
      a golfer) or by swiping a Caddy. You can improve your swing and work 
      somebody over at the same time.....

  >>Screwdriver
    ***********
      Cost: $10 - "Tooled Up", "Bunch of Tools" and "Screw This" Hardware 
            Stores.

             you!".....

  >>Hammer
    ******
      Cost: $20 - "Tooled Up", "Bunch of Tools" and "Screw This" Hardware 
            Stores.

            Stores.
      Notes: Slice, dice and make giblets out of anyone that gets in your 
             way.....

      Notes: "This knife killed over 25,000 people in Cambodia. Now you can

      Cost: $300 - "Tooled Up" Hardware Store.
      Notes: While overhead swings can be effective, running anyone through 
             with this sword will kill instantly. "Wow! You look like a 
             psycho!"......

  >>Chainsaw
    ********
      Cost: $500 - "Screw This" Hardware Store.
      Notes: Be careful using this weapon because you move slowly while using 
             it thus you are vulnerable to being attacked or busted. However, 
             according to Gui Ritter, you can jump when holding this weapon 
             which will allow you to get away more quickly than by just 
             running alone.

             Even so, it is still good for some sick thrills though.....

             **NOTE: You can actually get this weapon from the beginning of 
                     the game from the Hardware Store if you go to Vice City 
                     Mainland early. But there is already a free Chainsaw on 
                     Vice City Beach so going to Vice City Mainland early 
                     isn't necessary to get one.

| Slot 4 - Projectile Weapons \
0===============================================>

  These weapons are meant to be thrown at your targets. The longer you hold 
  the Attack button, the farther you throw:

  >>Grenades
    ********
      Cost: $300 - North Point Mall Ammu-Nation.
      Notes: Toss one of these and watch the crowds scatter (in more ways 
             than one).....

  >>Tear Gas
    ********
      This weapon can wear out your armor and health quickly if you stay in 
      the cloud for too long. Outside of a kick to the groin this is probably 
      the best way to make a grown man cry......

      **NOTE: This weapon is NOT available in either the PC or Xbox versions. 
              It is still available in the PS2 Original Version (1.40) and 
              PS2 Double Pack version (2.01).

  >>Molotovs
    ********
      Can be used to flambe' your enemies and yourself if you're too careless 
      in where you throw one. Best used when you acquire the Fireproof 
      Feature (by doing the Firetruck Mission) to keep yourself cool when 
      everybody else is not.....

  >>Remote Grenade
    **************
      Appears after: "Boomshine Saigon" (Phil Cassidy's Asset).
      Cost: $1,000 - Phil's Place.
      Notes: Throw this like a Grenade and detonate it at your leisure. Good 
             for ambushes.

             **NOTE: On the PS2 Original Version ONLY: This weapon should NOT 
                     be used when Infinite Ammo is acquired at 100% 
                     Completion due to a bug.

0==================0
| Slot 5 - Handguns \
0===============================================>

  >>Colt .45 [Pistol]
    *****************
      Cost: $100 - North Point Mall and OceanBeach Ammu-Nations.
      Notes: A decent handgun that can be bought or acquired from dead Cops. 
             This gun is also known as a Government model 1911. You can use 
             this weapon while running to make yourself harder to hit while 
             taking down a target at the same time.

  >>Colt Python [.357]
    ******************
      Appears after: "Rub Out" (Ricardo Diaz).
      Cost: $2,000 - Downtown Ammu-Nation.
      Notes: The best handgun around and one of the best weapons to use, 
             period. While the Python in this game is chambered for 9 mm 
             (.357), it's more often chambered for the larger 12.7 mm round 
             in the real world.

             This gun is practically a one-kill weapon (except on SWAT 
             members) making this very effective on most missions. You can't 
             run while shooting with this gun but ,if you are quick with your 
             targeting, then you can still make fast work of a group of 
             enemies with little damage.

0==================0
| Slot 6 - Shotguns \
0===============================================>

  These ridiculously powerful weapons will make short work of anything 
  (including vehicles - even the Hunter). You can't run while holding one but 
  that doesn't make you any less dangerous:

  >>Chrome Shotgun
    **************
      Appears after: "Mall Shootout" (Colonel Cortez).
      Cost: $500 - Ocean Beach Ammu-Nation.
      Notes: A standard pump action single barreled shotgun. Slow on the fire 
             rate but still effective.

  >>Stubby Shotgun
    **************
      This Shotgun has had the barrels sawn off to make it easier to conceal. 
      However, this greatly reduces its range. But it's still a real beast up 
      close.

  >>Spaz Shotgun [S.P.A.S. 12]
    **************************
      Appears after: "Bar Brawl" (Tommy Vercetti).
      Cost: $4,000 - Downtown Ammu-Nation.
      Notes: A much cooler looking rapid-fire shotgun. This is the best 
             Shotgun in the game. Great against Mafia bosses.....

0==========================0
| Slot 7 - Sub-Machine Guns \
0===============================================>

  These lightweight weapons can take down anyone very quickly. These are the 
  only weapons that can be used while in a car, motorcycle or boat:

  >>Tec-9
    *****
      This has the largest magazine of this group but is less accurate and 
      has a slower rate of fire. But you can run and aim at the same time 
      like you can with the Pistol.

  >>Ingram Mac-10 [Mac]
    *******************
      Cost: $300 - Ocean Beach Ammu-Nation.
      Notes: This gun is a little bit better than the Tec-9 but has about 
             half the clip capacity. Like the Pistol and the Tec-9, you can 
             also aim and run at the same time using the Mac-10.

  >>Uzi 9mm [Uz-I]
    **************
      Cost: $400 - North Point Mall Ammu-Nation.
      Notes: One of the better machine guns here as it has a good rate of 
             fire and accuracy. It also has a slightly faster reload than the 
             other guns. Because you have to use two hands when firing, you 
             can't aim and run at the same time while using this weapon.

  >>MP5 [MP]
    *******
      Appears after: "Rub Out" (Ricardo Diaz).
      Cost: $3,000 - Downtown Ammu-Nation.
      Notes: The best sub-machine gun in the group. Has a high rate of 
             accuracy and fire making it perfect for drive-bys. You can 
             either get one off an FBI agent (good luck) during a 5-Star 
             Wanted Rating or purchase one from the Downtown Ammu-Nation. 
             Like the Uzi 9mm [Uz-I], you can't aim and run at the same time 
             because you have to use both hands to fire this weapon.

0========================0
| Slot 8 - Assault Rifles \
0===============================================>

  These weapons are very good for getting rid of a crowd. Use Target to 
  properly aim these weapons. According to Eric Chase you can improve the 
  accuracy of these weapons by crouching (keeps the targeting sight from 
  jumping around so much):

  >>Ruger [Kruger]
    **************
      Appears after: "Guardian Angels" (Colonel Cortez).
      Cost: $1,000 - Ocean Beach Ammu-Nation.
      Notes: This has a decent rate of fire and your targeting sight remains 
             steady. This is also known as a Mini-M14.

  >>M4
    **
      Appears after: "Rub Out" (Ricardo Diaz).
      Cost: $5,000 - Downtown Ammu-Nation.
      Notes: This has a very fast rate of fire but your sight will jump all 
             around the screen. Good for quick work once you manage to 
             compensate for the unsteadiness of the gun.

0=======================0
| Slot 9 - Heavy Weapons \
0===============================================>

  These are some of the most powerful weapons in the game. However, you walk 
  slowly while carrying them thus making you an easy target for law 
  enforcement (or pissed off pedestrians):

  >>M60
    ***
      Appears after: "Boomshine Saigon" (Phil Cassidy's Asset).
      Cost: $8,000 - Phil's Place.
      Notes: An large powerful Army-style machine gun. It uses a 7.62 mm NATO 
             round and has a moderate rate of fire. However, when firing the 
             weapon, then the sight will jump around the screen.

             But it will still make quick work of anything that gets in its 
             way. According to Eric Chase you can improve the accuracy of 
             this weapon by crouching (keeps the targeting sight from jumping 
             around so much).

  >>Flamethrower
    ************
      Better than the Molotovs for roasting nearby enemies because you can 
      aim where the flames go. Its main use is against the Rhino since fire 
      is the only thing that can destroy it. For maximum carnage value, try 
      using it in The Malibu Club.

  >>Rocket Launcher
    ***************
      Appears after: "Boomshine Saigon" (Phil Cassidy's Asset).
      Cost: $8,000 - Phil's Place.
      Notes: This very destructive weapon can be made more powerful when you 
             get the Fast Load feature (after successful completion of "Rifle 
             Range") for it will make this into a rapid-fire weapon. This 
             weapon is also known as an RPG-7.

  >>Mini-Gun
    ********
      Appears after: "Boomshine Saigon" (Phil Cassidy's Asset).
      Cost: $10,000 - Phil's Place.
      Notes: Although quite powerful (you can shred anything that is in front 
             of it), it is a pain to use because you can't lock onto anything 
             and the camera doesn't get a very good angle behind you (most 
             times).

0========================0
| Slot 10 - Sniper Rifles \
0===============================================>

  Excellent for taking long range target practice and zooming in on various 
  features (they make excellent binoculars):

  >>Sniper Rifle
    ************
      Appears after: "Phnom Penh '86" (Ricardo Diaz).
      Cost: $1,500 - Downtown Ammu-Nation.
      Notes: This fires one shot at a time and reloads slowly but it is 
             effective. This weapon is also known as a civilian model of both 
             the M24 and the M40 and is also the same sniper rifle used in 
             "Grand Theft Auto III". You can make this rifle into a 
             rapid-fire weapon when you acquire the Fast Load feature (by 
             successfully completing "Rifle Range").

  >>PSG1 [.308 Sniper]
    ******************
      Appears after: "Shakedown" (Tommy Vercetti).
      Cost: $6,000 - Downtown Ammu-Nation.
      Notes: The best sniper rifle around. It has a laser scope and 
             multi-round capability.

  pursuit.

By going after the Hidden Packages, strewn throughout Vice City, then you
will be helping yourself get familiar with Vice City as well as generating
Weapon Icons and vehicles.

The Weapon Icons will spawn at the Ocean View Hotel, the Hyman Condo
(Downtown) and The Mansion (Starfish Island). The vehicles will spawn where
noted.

There are 100 Hidden Packages total and each Package retrieved will give
$100. You will also get $100,000 for acquiring all 100 Packages plus
percentage toward 100% Completion.

This is the list of what you get for finding the Hidden Packages:

  >>10 Packages - Body Armor
  >>20 Packages - Chainsaw
  >>30 Packages - Python [.357]
  >>40 Packages - Flamethrower
  >>50 Packages - PSG1 [.308 Sniper]
  >>60 Packages - Mini-Gun
  >>70 Packages - Rocket Launcher
  >>80 Packages - Sea Sparrow (at The Mansion on Starfish Island)
  >>90 Packages - Rhino (near the front entrance of Fort Baxter Air Base)
  >>100 Packages - Hunter (at the rear of Fort Baxter Air Base)

There are three Packages that need to be acquired by helicopter or boat and
can be done later. For those on the ground, you can speed up the process by
using a Faggio which will allow you to get into small places quickly.

With that explained, let's go find them.....

                        The best way to acquire it, as suggested by Andrew 
                        Morgan, is to get a tall vehicle (I prefer an 
                        Ambulance) and go up to the gate. Jump on top of the 
                        vehicle then jump over the gate.

                        Go around the back and collect the Package and use 
                        the boxes at the west side of the Spand Express area 
                        to jump back over the wall and into the nearby 
                        Fairground Point construction site.

                   It may slide back into the water while you are getting the 
                   Package but it will still be close to the rock so you can 
                   get back in.

| II.11. Pizza Delivery Mission                                      [PZDM] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

By now you should not only be acclimated to the Faggio but have a good feel 
for this half of the city. The Pizza Boy is just another version of the
Faggio so it handles the same way.

The mission consists of ten levels. In each level you have five minutes to 
deliver pizza to your customers and return back to the pizza place for more
orders.

In Level 1, it is just one customer, in Level 2, two customers and so on
until you have ten customers on Level 10. But it is still five minutes per
level so there is little room for error when you get to Level 7 and beyond.

In addition, you can carry a maximum of six pizzas at a time and they must be
delivered via drive-by (left or right only). Starting at level seven you have
to go back to get more pizzas when you have delivered your sixth pizza of the
level.

When you get into the higher levels then you may want to pause and look at
your map when you start a level. When you get to Level 7 and beyond then take
six customers and plan a circular route that starts at the restaurant and
make your way to the furthest customer hitting other customers along the way.

Then, from there, make your way back to the pizza place getting customers
with your remaining pizzas. The remaining customers should be the ones
closest to the restaurant so you can easily complete the rest of that level.

After successfully completing the pizza mission then your maximum health will
go from 100 to 150 when you save or get a health icon.

One time I got a mission failure that wasn't my fault. During one attempt on
Level 10, I saw two cars, one behind the other as I approached a customer. 
Now sometimes during the game you will see cars pass each other up rather
aggressively adding a realistic touch to the traffic.

Well, it happened here as I tried to get to my customer. But the back car
decided to use the sidewalk to pass up the front car. In the process, the
back car ran over and killed my customer saddling me with a mission failure.
Now how lame is that?

| II.12. Ambulance Mission                                           [ABMS] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Next up is the Ambulance Mission. The Ambulance Mission in "Grand Theft Auto
III" was one of the hardest things to do in that game. Fortunately, the
Ambulance Mission in Vice City is much easier than the one in GTA3.

For starters, the Ambulance is much tougher thus lessening the need to use
the Health Code. In addition, if you put the vehicle on its side, then you
can easily right it. Plus, the amount of time earned during Level 12 doesn't
tighten up like it did in GTA3.

Also, you can determine how easy this mission is by which hospital you use as
your "base". And finally, you have access to a full overhead map of the city
(when you pause) so you can plan your routes.

There are four hospitals in Vice City, two on Vice City Beach and two on Vice
City Mainland. At this point I am on Vice City Beach so I will focus on the
two hospitals there, Vice Point and Ocean Beach.

The easiest one to use for the mission is the Shady Palms Hospital in Vice
Point. The main reason is that most of your patients will be on the beach
which has no vehicles or trees to get in the way.

The best thing to do beforehand is to practice driving the ambulance around
before doing the mission, especially on the beach. Learn how to stop the
thing properly on the sand so you can lessen the risk of killing patients. Go
back near Shady Palms Hospital and start the mission when you're ready.

When the mission starts then you have to drive around picking up patients and
take them to a nearby hospital.

There are twelve levels in the Ambulance Mission. You start with one patient
at Level 1 and a additional patient will be added in each level as you
progress.

You can carry a maximum of three patients at one time so you will have to
plan your routes, using the in-game map, to find the best way to pick them
up.

Always go for the furthest patient first and work back to the hospital. The
ambulance can only carry three patients so you will have to think in groups
of three when you plan your routes in the later levels (use your map when
planning).

If you don't think you will have enough time to get the furthest one first
then get the first one you see on the way then make your way to the furthest
patient.

When approaching a patient then make sure that the patient is on the right of
your ambulance and don't get too close as the patient is running toward your
vehicle as you approach. When the patient just starts to get in the ambulance
then go. This will save a second or two.

You don't have to drive like a bat out of hell to go from patient to patient
and then to the hospital. The time is a little more generous here so you can
slow down and evade traffic more effectively and turn without the risk of
tipping over and crashing.

In addition, one of my readers, Jari H S Kauppila, wrote me with the
following claim.....

  "I play the PC version of GTA: Vice City and I found out some funny stuff
   that in the ambulance mission, when I drop off 3 patients, the ambulance
   heals itself. I didn't need to use the health code that way. It's useful
   and I think you should mention this."

This self-healing property works in both the PS2 and Xbox versions also.

This self-healing occurs when you drop off a group of three patients in the
middle of a level (not at the end). This means that this healing occurs at
level four and above.

However, the Ambulance does not heal completely. If your Ambulance is 
billowing black smoke then it will be reduced to white smoke. If the
Ambulance has white smoke then it will be reduced to nothing.

When you successfully complete the Ambulance Mission then you will have the
Infinite Run feature (never tire when running) and lots of cash (you can earn
around $53,000 or so).

Finally, you can't do the Ambulance Mission if you cheat your way to Vice
City Mainland - no patients will appear.

| II.13. Firetruck Mission                                           [FTMS] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

In your exploration of Vice City Beach you will notice that there are no Fire
Stations. The only Fire Station is on Vice City Mainland (to the west and
across the street of the Downtown Police Station).

If you cheat your way to Vice City Mainland and try to do the Firetruck
Mission then you will find out that you can't do anything - no targets will
generate while you are unofficially on Vice City Mainland.

That doesn't mean you can't do the Firetruck Mission while stuck on Vice City
Beach - you just have to make a Firetruck come to you.

If you acquired at least forty Hidden Packages then you should have the
Flamethrower Icon unlocked at the Ocean View Hotel. While doing other things
then occasionally go back to your hotel room to get the icon and build up a
little bit of ammo.

When you are ready then go to an intersection and flame some cars. A
Firetruck should show up quickly. Try to keep Wanted Rating down (about
1-Star) so you can easily grab the Firetruck. Get some bribes to get rid of
the Wanted Rating.

Another option is to do Rampage [OCB-R15] (near The Lighthouse) to draw out a
Firetruck. Get the Firetruck when the Rampage is over.

Once you have the Firetruck then press Activate Vehicle Mission to begin. You
use the Attack button to use the water cannon and the Right Analog Stick
(PS2, Xbox) or Number Pad (PC) to aim the water cannon.

In the Firetruck Mission you have to go from place to place to put out
vehicle fires. In addition, the more you advance, the more cars you have to
put out (up to a maximum of three per level).

On top of that, in later levels, when you put out a car fire, then people
will exit that car and they will be aflame also. They also will run up the
street so you will have to chase them to put them out.

You have to be careful when chasing them for sometimes they run back at you
and, if you don't stop in time, then you will kill them and the mission will
be failed.

A general rule of thumb for me is to put out the cars first putting out as 
many of the passenger fires as possible when they exit their cars. Then I go
and carefully chase the remaining passengers to finish the level.

When you successfully complete Level 12 then you will be rewarded with the 
Fireproof Feature which will make you..well...fireproof. This means that if 
you catch on fire, like say from an errant Molotov, then you won't be hurt.
This does not, however, make you explosion proof so don't get too cocky.

You can also save the Firetruck at the Ocean Heights garage if you want to
use it again later.

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Before doing this mission it is advisable to have lots of sub-machine gun
ammo.

When in a Police Vehicle then press Activate Vehicle Mission to begin a
Vigilante Mission. You will then be prompted to chase and destroy a selected
target which is another car.

You have to kill all the criminals in the car, by drive-bying them, before
moving onto the next level. Sometimes, if you damage the criminal's car
enough, then the criminals may exit the car to confront you. Drive-by or run
them over to get rid of them. 

The higher you go up the levels the more criminals you will have to deal with
(up to a maximum of three cars per level with three criminals per car).

The faster you can complete a level the more time you can accumulate which
will help you when you need to find another Police Car (after it has been
shot up a bit).

Care must be taken to keep your Wanted Ratings to a minimum because you
cannot use a Police Vehicle in a Pay 'N' Spray and the Cops don't take too
kindly to someone muscling in on their job. The Cops are almost as bad as the
criminals sometimes.

Although you can complete this mission with a standard Police Car, the best
vehicles to use are the Hunter and the Rhino (explained later).

After completing Level 12 then you will be rewarded with a permanent increase
in your Armor (going up to 150 maximum).

Now, that I've maxed out my health and armor as well as unlocking the
Fireproof and Infinite Run Features, I will now move onto.....

| II.15. Rampages Explained                                          [RGEX] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

As you go around the city then you may notice some skull icons laying about.
These are the Rampage Icons.

When one is activated then you will be instructed to kill or destroy certain
objects within a time limit and with a given weapon with unlimited ammo (that
you can't switch out of during the duration of the Rampage). The people that
you are instructed to kill are always gang members and randomize from game to
game.

If you activate a Rampage Icon then you may be asked to kill Cuban gang
members. If you start another game and activate the same Rampage Icon then
you may be asked to kill Bikers.

In addition, these Rampages are easier than the ones in GTA3 because the gang
members cluster in groups for protection which makes it easy for you to take
them down quickly. Plus it is easier to aim and the weapons, like the Python
[.357], are better.

All Rampages are two minutes in length regardless of weapon or location. You 
cannot pick up any money or weapons dropped by your victims during a Rampage. 
You will have to wait until it is over before picking up any bonus money or 
weapons.

Sometimes, after a Rampage, you may notice missing weapons. One of my
readers, Monkey Man, suggested a method to prevent your weapons from going
missing after Rampages:

   "Normally you lose weapons when you do rampages. to prevent yourself from 
    losing weapons, just switch to the same weapon "class" (sub machine gun, 
    sniper rifle, shotgun, etc)as the rampage is and you wont lose any 
    weapons. It doesnt matter if its the same weapon as the rampage is or a 
    different weapon that is in the same class as the ramapage, as long as 
    you switch to the same weapon class as the rampage you wont lose any 
    weapon."

So, for example, if you are going to do a Rampage that uses a Shotgun weapon,
then switch to a Shotgun, any Shotgun, prior to starting the Rampage.

This trick should allow you to keep your weapons intact.

In addition, reader Robert Kosinski found something that can allow you to
build up vast amounts of ammunition for your weapons. He noted that any
weapon you hold in your hand when you start a Rampage will have its
ammunition DOUBLED when you finish regardless of success or failure.

One plus to failing a Rampage is that it doesn't reflect negatively on your
stats. So you can fail a Rampage over and over to increase the ammunition for
your weapons without worry.

Robert also found that the best Rampage to use for this exploit has to be one
with a melee weapon since that weapon type is unaffected by the lossage
problem and that Rampage [OCB-R12] is the preferred Rampage because of its
close proximity to the Ocean View Hotel.

He also recommended waiting until after completion of the mission "Check Out
at the Check In" (Assassination Contact) because you will be forced to use a
regular Sniper Rifle instead of allowing you to use the superior PSG1 [.308
Sniper] which you will lose if you have it in your possession.

I have also noted that certain gangs are more aggressive than others. The
Columbians appear to be the nastiest, especially after completion of the
mission "Rubout" (Ricardo Diaz), while the Bikers and Street Punks appear to
be the least harmful.

However, the soldiers at Fort Baxter Air Base can become a gang too, mostly
for Rampages [EIA-R29] and [EIA-R30] situated near the Air Base. These guys
are far worse than the Columbians because they have more powerful weapons,
the M4, and they will shoot at you with no provocation.

This makes any Rampage they appear in very difficult. I also found out that
the soldiers stay primarily around the Air Base and part of the Airport
grounds. If you can get off of the Airport grounds, like near the Hooker Inn,
then the gangs will change and you will have an easier time doing the
Rampage.

Thanks to a suggestion from Sri C (who recommended using a Rhino for one of
the Rampages), you can use Sea Sparrows, Hunters and Rhinos for almost all
of the Rampages.

But there are certain Rampages that can really benefit from using a Rhino or
Hunter (such as Katana or Chainsaw Rampages). I have made this suggestion
within the Rampages that can best be served by using a military vehicle.

It should be noted that, when using the Rhino, then the Tank Gun can shoot
over the heads of people. So you need to shoot a nearby building to create
splash damage to kill your targets.

With that explained, let's go do them.....

             Notes: I hate the Chainsaw Rampages. You run very slowly while 
                    doing this and the gang members can easily make mincemeat 
                    out of you if you're not careful.

                    This is in addition to all the Cops that may converge on 
                    your position when you start racking up Wanted Ratings. 
                    Hold down the Attack button when approaching gang 
                    clusters to make short work of them. Keep moving to avoid 
                    as much of the gunfire as possible.

                    If you wait until after completion of the mission "Phnom 
                    Penh '86" (Ricardo Diaz) and have at least 90 Hidden 
                    Packages then you can use the Rhino to kill your targets 
                    instead and make this much easier. Park the Rhino close 
                    to the Rampage then activate it.

                    From there, just go down the nearby streets and shoot the 
                    nearby buildings to create splash damage to kill the gang 
                    members.

                         then turn right at the next three-way intersection.

                         After a short distance then you will reach the end 
                         of this cul-de-sac where you will find the Rampage 
                         on the grass.
             Map: (D-5).
             Notes: Another drive-by rampage. Recommended vehicles are the 
                    Angel, Sanchez or PCJ-600. Just drive forward while 
                    shooting to take down the gang clusters.

              Location: By the glass railing at the southwest corner of the 
                        top level of the Washington Mall parking garage.
              Map: (F-4).
              Notes: Go to where the upper walkway is in the center of the 
                     mall area and jump down. From there, find as many of the 
                     gang clusters as you can and rip them to shreds.

              Map: (F-4).
              Notes: Not too hard. Stay on the corner above street level and 
                     pick them off from a distance.

[OCB-R12] - Kill 20 Gang Members [Chainsaw]

              Location: Behind the fence of the pink apartment building next 
                        door south of the Going Gas Station.
              Map: (F-4).
              Notes: Just like with Rampage [VCP-R4], hold down the Attack 
                     button when approaching gang clusters to make short work 
                     of them. Keep moving to avoid as much of the gunfire as 
                     possible.

                     If you wait until after completion of the mission "Phnom 
                     Penh '86" (Ricardo Diaz) and have at least 90 Hidden 
                     Packages then you can use the Rhino to kill your targets 
                     instead and make this much easier. Park the Rhino close 
                     to the Rampage then activate it.

                     From there, just go down the nearby streets and shoot 
                     the nearby buildings to create splash damage to kill the 
                     gang members.

[OCB-R13] - Kill 10 Gang Members [Katana]
            *****************************
              Location: In the group of green and white apartment buildings 
                        north of the Ocean Beach Pay 'N' Spray.
              Directions: From the Ocean Beach Pay 'N' Spray, head north and 
                          stop at the next three-way intersection. At the 
                          northeast corner of this intersection you should 
                          see the green and white apartment complex.

                          From this corner, head east and along the sidewalk. 
                          You should see to your left the hedge fence for 
                          these apartments.

                          There are two openings in the hedge fence. Go left
                          through the first one and follow the path.

                          When you get to the first intersection then hang a 
                          right and the Rampage should be behind a tree.
              Map: (F-4).
              Notes: As I said earlier, I hate Chainsaw Rampages but I am not 
                     too fond of Katana Rampages either. You either have to 
                     behead them or run them through otherwise the kill won't 
                     count.

                     You can't knock them down and kick them either. Use the 
                     Body Armor at the top of the stairs of the nearby blue 
                     and white stilt building if you need it.

                     And you will need it too since the gang members can 
                     really make this hard on you because they will be 
                     shooting at you and all you have is the sword. Go up to 
                     a gang cluster, swing the sword a few times to see if 
                     you kill one or more of them and then run away when they 
                     start firing at you. Then go up to another cluster and 
                     repeat until you either succeed or fail.

                     If you wait until after completion of the mission "Phnom 
                     Penh '86" (Ricardo Diaz) and have at least 90 Hidden 
                     Packages then you can use the Rhino to kill your targets 
                     instead and make this much easier. Park the Rhino close 
                     to the Rampage then activate it.

                     From there, just go down the nearby streets and shoot 
                     the nearby buildings to create splash damage to kill the 
                     gang members.

              Location: At the southwest corner of the roof of the corner 
                        building that is part of the Ocean Beach Parking 
                        Garage complex.
              Map: (F-5).
              Notes: This one is pretty easy. Zoom in on the gang clusters to 
                     take them down.

              Location: In the open, on the path leading to The Lighthouse.
              Map: (G-5).
              Notes: You can do this Rampage to get a Firetruck for the 
                     Firetruck Mission. Just maintain a safe distance and do 
                     a medium lob to hit the gang clusters.

                     If you do the Firetruck Mission and get the Fireproof 
                     Feature enabled then this Rampage becomes much easier. 
                     Just go to a gang cluster and drop a Molotov at their 
                     feet. Continue doing this to the gang clusters until you 
                     successfully complete the Rampage.

              Notes: Park the car on the hilltop (on the grass) west of the 
                     Icon (so you can get traction to go back to the street 
                     faster). Speed to the sidewalk along the beach and go 
                     north and south along the sidewalk to claim your 
                     targets.

With that done, let's move on to the next chapter.....

 \=========================================================================/

All around Vice City you will find objects that can be used as ramps for
vehicle jumping. Usually, on most jumps, you will just get some additional
money and not much more.

But, on some jumps, you will get a slow motion cutscene as you fly through
the air. These jumps are known as the Unique Stunt Jumps and, if you complete
them correctly, then this will add toward 100% Completion.

The best vehicle to use for these Jumps is the PCJ-600 motorcycle (unless
noted).

There are a total of thirty six Unique Stunt Jumps in the game and seventeen
to nineteen of them can be done on Vice City Beach at this point of the game.

With that explained, let's go do them.....

                    get right. Don't try to do this when it is raining 
                    because you will have to go all the way to the beach wall 
                    to start your run and wet grass will slow your motorcycle 
                    down.

              Notes: This Jump is done with a Cheetah. It may get picky if 
                     you use a PCJ-600. Can also be done while acquiring 
                     Package [OCB-H45] which is on the building to the right 
                     when you land. Use one of the roof vents to jump to the

              Heading: West to East.
              Map: (F-5).
              Notes: You need to jump from the Washington Mall to the roof of 
                     the Beach Scooter store, with a PCJ-600, to put yourself 
                     into position (and doing Jump [OCB-J13] in the process - 
                     if the game gives you credit for doing it with the 
                     PCJ-600).

                     Go up the stairs and you will see the vent which is on 
                     the northeast corner of the adjacent building. You will 
                     have to take an angular approach because of another vent 
                     which is in the way. Line yourself up, back yourself up 
                     as far as possible, gun the engine and go in order to 
                     make the Jump.

                        door south of the Ocean Beach Pay 'N' Spray.
              Heading: North to South.
              Map: (G-4).
              Notes: Go into the alley across the street north of the blue 
                     and white stilt building to get the distance 
                     needed. You also need to stay at the left of the stairs 
                     so you can line yourself properly for Jump [OCB-J16] 
                     when you land on the roof.

                     When doing Jump [OCB-J16], angle slightly left and aim 
                     for the center of the next building across the street. 
                     You can smack into the side of the building to get 
                     credit for the Jump.

                     However, by angling slightly left and aiming for the 
                     center of the next building, then you will get more 
                     distance and be able to successfully complete the Jump. 
                     If you keep straight then you more than likely will 
                     smack into the side of the building that is closest to 
                     the street and thus you won't get the distance for the 
                     Jump.

              **NOTE: These two Jumps become available after completion of 
                      "Phnom Penh '86" (Ricardo Diaz) and are done 
                      back-to-back.

                      To start, back up as far as possible, gun the engine 
                      and go. Both Jumps are done at once because you need 
                      enough speed to go from one pier section to another.

                      After doing Jump [OCB-J18] then keep up the speed then 
                      hit the ramp for Jump [OCB-J19]. When you land after 
                      doing Jump [OCB-J19] then hold down Handbrake and tap 
                      Reverse to stop quickly.

                      From here, you will have to turn left and do one more 
                      jump to make it back to the mainland.

                      It should be noted that it is possible to actually do 
                      these Jumps prior to "Phnom Penh '86" (Ricardo Diaz) 
                      and will be explained later in the guide.

Now let's go do some more side-missions.....

 /=========================================================================\
0===========================================================================0
| II.19. Taxi Mission                                                [TXMS] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Whenever you enter a taxi in Vice City then you have the option of doing the
Taxi Mission by pressing Activate Vehicle Mission. The mission consists
simply of driving fares from place to place ala Sega's "Crazy Taxi".

By getting 100 fares (they don't have to be done all at once) then you can
unlock the Super Taxi Jump that will allow you to jump over cars (but not
over the roadblocks) and inch closer to 100% Completion.

Getting 100 fares in Vice City takes longer than it did in "Grand Theft Auto
III" because of the size of Vice City. The game likes to send you from one
end of the city to the other over and over again which makes things a bit
tedious because of the length of the city.

Vice City Mainland is probably better to do this mission on because of the
width of the main road (Bayshore Avenu) which makes it easier to get from
place to place without smashing into any cars.

When doing the mission then it is best to get a regular Taxi instead of the 
Cabbie (or Kaufman Cab) because the Cabbie / Kaufman Cab is slower and
unstable which leads to easy rollovers.

One option is to wait until you have done the Kaufman Cab Asset Missions and
unlock the Zebra Cab. It is slightly faster than the Taxi and more stable 
than the Cabbie / Kaufman Cab and it just plain looks cool. The choice is
yours.

There are times when you are doing the Taxi Mission that you have a hard time
getting fares to show up. You may drive around and around wasting time
waiting for a fare to pick up.

When this happens then find a person riding a motorcycle or moped. Smack him
to knock him off (but not so hard that you kill him). When he gets up off the
ground then he will become your next fare. I found that this trick works
almost 100% of the time I tried it.

| II.20. Robbing Stores (Vice City Beach)                            [BBVB] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Throughout the city there are a total of fifteen stores that you can enter
and rob. Ammu-Nation doesn't count because all you're going to get for your 
effort is shot. You can't rob fast food places either (like they have a lot 
of money, eh?).

There are a total of eight stores on Vice City Beach and seven on Vice City
Mainland. Simply aim your gun, but don't shoot, at the clerk behind the
counter. The longer you hold your aim, the more money you get. You can earn
a maximum of $1,000 per store.

However, if you try to hold your aim that long to get it, then you will end 
up with a 3-Star Wanted Rating. But, no matter what you do, you will end up
with at least a 2-Star Wanted Rating anyway so it doesn't matter if you leave
the clerk alone or shoot him.

The best thing to do here is to rob all the stores on Vice City Beach in one 
run and get it over with.

However, if you wait until either completion of the missions "Rub Out"
(Ricardo Diaz) or "Copland" (Tommy Vercetti), then you can take advantage of
the No Wanted Rating Exploit and rob all of the Stores without any
interference.

Below is the list of stores to rob on Vice City Beach from north to south.

| II.21. Top Fun Vans (Vice City Beach)                              [TFVB] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

During your exploration of Vice City you may have noticed a silver van with 
a red, white, and blue logo stating "Top Fun" on the side at either the top
of the North Point Mall parking garage or by the Beach Dirtbike Track. 

Entering this van starts a vehicle mission. More specifically, an RC vehicle
mission.

These missions are races with radio controlled vehicles and vary from van to 
van. In addition to the two vans mentioned above, there is also a third van 
on the grounds of Escobar International Airport on Vice City Mainland.

It should be noted that these vehicles are difficult to control and will take
some getting used to if you wish to be successful. Now for a breakdown of the
two Top Fun Vans on Vice City Beach:

0=================================0
| RC Bandit (Beach Dirtbike Track) \
0=================================================================>

This one requires two laps around the track with RC cars. The best thing to
do is out-corner the cars in each turn since you can't out-accelerate them.
This usually leads to victory.

0===========================================0
| RC Baron (North Point Mall Parking Garage) \
0=================================================================>

This one is a race using RC biplanes. This one's a pain because the plane
does not control good at all and may require several tries to succeed.

Hold down Accelerate to move forward and, when you get into the air, then
hold down Handbrake in conjunction with Accelerate. I found during recent
play time on the PS2 that holding down these two buttons makes the plane go
faster and allows you to get up a large lead.

In addition, you can change the viewpoint of the camera behind the plane if
you change the viewpoint while in a car prior to getting into the Top Fun
van. If you change the camera in the car to the first-person or cinematic
camera then the camera behind the plane will be directly behind it instead of
above and behind.

I found that this viewpoint was quite helpful in allowing me to avoid
lampposts or other obstacles. This trick only works with this mission and not
the other two Top Fun van missions.

If, by chance, you end up on the ground then you are pretty much screwed
because you probably won't be able to get back up in time to avoid being
passed and you will lose the race.

 \=========================================================================/

If you do a little exploration on Vice City Beach then you may come across a 
PCJ-600 parked close to the south side of the Standing Vice Point hotel.

When you get on the motorcycle then you will activate the vehicle
side-mission "PCJ Playground". The side-mission is to collect twenty four
checkpoints in two minutes. However, you will have to do a few jumps near the
beginning and you may lose time if you screw them up.

When you start then you will have to go up the road toward the Malibu Club a
little bit to get some running room to go up the first ramp. After getting
the second checkpoint then you may have to go back down into the alley and
back up a little bit so you can do the jump to get the next checkpoint.

About a third of the way into the mission you will see two trucks that will 
try to cut in front of you as you go down the alley. The first truck you can 
just jump over using the pallets.

The second truck you will have to just slow down a little to let him pass.
You will wreck if you try to get in front of him.

When you get to the stilt building near the end then get the marker then hang 
a right to go down to the end of the alley so you can turn around and make
the jump to the last two markers.

| II.23. "Cone Crazy"                                                [CNCR] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

At the top of the Ocean Beach Parking Garage, which is west of the Ocean View
Hotel, is another vehicle side-mission called "Cone Crazy".

Near the north end of the garage is a Stallion you enter to activate this
side-mission. Here you must get five checkpoints that are placed among cones
that you cannot hit

The timer doesn't start until you get the first checkpoint so you can scope
the scene first. The trick here is hitting them in the right order to
succeed.

When you start the side-mission then you will see a Checkpoint off to your
right [#5]. As you go to the south end then you will see one in a circle of
cones with a Checkpoint in the middle [#4].

At the south end you will see two more on the ramps in the corner [#2, #3].
And finally, near the back of the ramp down, is the last Checkpoint [#1].

You will notice the numbers I attached to each checkpoint. This is the order 
you hit them to succeed. You don't have to hit them head-on to activate. You 
can just clip them with your fender.

To start, head southeast and towards Checkpoint [#1]. You will see the marker
situated between two rows of cones. Even though it looks like you can't you
can actually drive south through the cones to get Checkpoint [#1] like in the
picture below (the /\ indicates direction):

                     ______
               *    *|
                     |
                (1)  |
                 /\  |
     *    *    * /\ *|_____
                 /\
                 /\
                 /\

After acquiring Checkpoint [#1] and activating the timer then head right to
get [#2, #3]. You have to have good speed going up the ramp or else you will
get hung up at the top.

Once you get [#2, #3] then it is a piece of cake from here. You now have
plenty of time to carefully get Checkpoint [#4] and Checkpoint [#5] to
successfully complete the side-mission.

If you have the PS2 Original Version then you can take advantage of what is
known as the Cone Crazy Glitch. While there are a lot of glitches and bugs in
the PS2 Original Version that are bad, this bug is actually beneficial.

The Cone Crazy Glitch allows you to make an obscene amount of money rather
quickly. This exploit has been around for awhile but I could not fully
understand how it worked until Walter Marshaleck wrote me in more detail
about this trick.

When you start "Cone Crazy" for the first time then you will be notified that
each marker you hit will give you twelve seconds of time. After successfully
completing "Cone Crazy" for the first time then you will set a record and win
$200. Each time you break the record you will double your money ($200, $400,
$800, $1,600, etc.).

However, after breaking your record, then the amount of time given per marker
will be reduced by one second when you play again. So, when you play "Cone
Crazy" for the second time, then you will be given eleven seconds per marker.
If you break the record again then the time given per marker for the next
attempt will be ten seconds and so forth.

If you do not break your record then you will be given $200 and the time per
marker will not be reduced for the next attempt.

The bug manifests itself in that, even though the instructions will say that
the time per marker is reduced, it never is actually reduced. Let's say that
the instructions state that the time per marker is now six seconds. However,
you still have twelve seconds per marker.

So, how will this make money for you? Remember that each time you break your
record you will double your money.

So, for the first time you play "Cone Crazy", then stop at the last marker
and tag it when there is one second on the clock to establish your record and
collect $200. Play it again, stop at the last marker and tag it when there is
two seconds remaining to break your record and get $400.

Play it again, stop at the last marker and tag it again when there is three
seconds remaining to break your record again and collect $800.

Keep repeating this pattern and, by the time where you tag the clock with
twenty seconds remaining, then you can make in excess of $209,000,000. You
can actually push it as far as twenty six seconds and become a billionaire.

However, it is best to wait until the money stops counting before trying to
play again otherwise you may actually lose money.

This bug was fixed for all other versions so the time per marker will
actually be reduced after each record is broken (and reduce the number of
times you can break your record). In addition, the amount of time for each
marker will go no lower than six seconds.

Even though the time per marker is being reduced, with proper management, you
can still make about $410,000 which will be more than enough to get started.

With this I have done all I can do on Vice City Beach before starting the
Main Story Missions. However, there is something else that can be done.....

| II.24. Going to Vice City Mainland Early                           [GVME] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

The reason for the roadblocks in Vice City, and all the other GTA games, were 
to keep you from getting all the Hidden Packages and do other stuff so you
wouldn't be too rich and powerful too early. However, this did not stop
people from trying to get around them.

Over time gamers managed to find reliable methods of getting around these
roadblocks without the use of cheat codes.

You do not have to sneak to Vice City Mainland early but it is highly
recommended since you can do a lot of stuff there that will really help you
later in the game plus get a lot of the little things out of the way so you
can plow through the Main Story.

Listed below are three reliable methods, depending on what version of the
game you have, of going to Vice City Mainland early. Also included in this
chapter is additional information including the Hyman Condo Glitch.

| II.24.A. "The Bus" (All Versions)                                        \
0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

First, you have to purchase the Ocean Heights Apartments property. Second,
you have to find a Coach, which is the long silver bus which appears from
time to time, and head to Ocean Heights to put it in the garage.

You will see that the Coach is too long for the garage but don't worry, it 
can still be saved. Go in and to the right as far as possible.

When you exit the bus then push it as far right against the wall as possible
and then push it from the back as far forward as you can. Then save your
game.

When you get back it may look like the bus is gone but, when you get the
garage to open, then the bus magically "expands" into view. This is a
leftover trick from "Grand Theft Auto III" which allowed you to save
firetrucks and other large vehicles in garages.

The reason you want to save the bus is because, in case you screw up the 
attempt, then you can just go back to your previous save instead of scouring
the city again for a Coach.

I should also point out that one of my readers, Sexybeast 22, played around
with this method and found several other vehicles that you can use instead of
the Coach should you have trouble finding one:

  >>Firetruck
  >>Enforcer
  >>Regina (station wagon)
  >>Perennial (station wagon)

For the sake of the rest of this section, instead of rewriting it completely,
I will use the Coach.

Get the bus and head to the pier at the Vice City Marina where Colonel Juan
Garcia Cortez's yacht is located (Pier 2). Normally, you will see a sports
car and a pair of large plants, one on each side of the pier. The one we will
deal with is the north plant.

With the bus at full speed, slam into the plant and it will disintegrate. You
will note that the black fence that runs north/south along the edge doesn't
extend to the corner leaving a gap, which the plant covered, big enough for a
vehicle to go through.

Now turn the bus right and go all the way to the wall. What we are going to 
do is put the bus in this gap while lining it parallel to the pier. It is 
important to note that you must BACK the bus into the gap not drive it 
forward (the door is near the front of the Coach).

Once you line up everything properly then gently back the bus until the rear
wheels are just over the curb and over the water (use the Drive-By Mode
(Right) to see the left side of the bus so you can see the wheels better). 

Then get out, get into the nearby Cheetah and use it to push the front of the
bus and gently put it into the water.

If you do everything right then the bus will fall into the water, parallel
and as close to the pier as possible. The bus will float (the top of the bus
will be just above the water) but still makes an excellent platform.

Carefully jump onto the floating bus and walk to the back end which, thanks 
to the Coach's length, is now past the gate. Jump onto the pier and grab a 
boat, preferably the Reefer.

This works in calm weather but works even better in stormy weather. The waves
generated by the storm will cause the bus to go up and down and simply jump
on to the pier when the bus is at its highest.

Once you get in the Reefer then you have the option to get Packages
[OCB-H49], [VPR-H95] and do Rampage [VPR-R34]. Beach the Reefer at The
Boathouse in Viceport, jump out and get a vehicle to do more exploration.

| II.24.B. "The Jump" (PS2 Version Only)                                   \
0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

Once you are familiar with the PCJ-600 and have some money to boot then you
can go ahead and do "The Jump". To do this, you have to go to Interglobal
Films on Prawn Island.

But you have to jump off a rooftop to get inside. Getting into position
requires touch because it is easy to fall into the alleyway where Package
[PRI-H5] is located.

You have to go up the ramp with just enough speed to land on the building but
slow enough not to fall off and then use one of the air vents to get onto the
second building. Once you are in proper position then back up as far as
possible then gun it and in the process you will be doing Jump [PRI-J1].

Now that you are inside Interglobal Films, find Studio C and go inside to 
collect Package [PRI-H3]. Make your way to the water tower in the NW corner
and you should see a large auto transport vehicle called the Packer. If it is
not there then go to the south end of the studio, run around the film lot
there and go back.

Upon examination, the Packer is essentially a movable ramp and was probably 
placed inside the studio to help gamers get out of the place by jumping off
of it if it was placed correctly, mainly to get back onto Prawn Island.

But the Packer can also be used to jump over the wall, past the roadblock and
onto the bridge leading into Downtown. Park your PCJ-600 near Studio B and
get into the Packer.

Point the Packer in a NW direction and, while using the right side of the 
right-most skyscraper in the background as an imaginary border, line the left 
side of the vehicle with it. Hold Drive-By Mode (Left) to see the right side 
of the Packer.

Near the top of the rear wheels you will see the blinker housings. Line the
right side of the blinker housing closest to the screen with the front of the
giant fan in the background. Exit the Packer and get back on the motorcycle.

Mind you, this doesn't have to be pixel perfect but this is how I lined up 
the transport. There may be a better position for the Packer but I was 
more concerned about just getting over the wall.

Doing a straight line shot won't work because there isn't enough space to 
get the speed necessary to make a successful jump. You will smack into the 
top of wall and fly into the water, killing you.

A curved approach is what is needed here. Go to the SE corner of the studio
where you will find a set of stairs.

Go under the stairs and turn around until you are facing north. Gun the
engine and go. Once past the glass building (the one with the curved glass
corner that should be on your left here) then curve left to line yourself
with the Packer.

By the time you reach the ramp then you should have the speed necessary to
jump the wall. You might clip the top of the wall with your wheels but it
should not cause any problems. Once on the bridge then straighten yourself
and head into Downtown.

One of my readers, Joey Schmidt, came up with a slight variation to doing the
jump using a different vehicle. I haven't tried it myself but I thought it
was cool enough to put in the guide:

  "Woohoo, I found another way of getting to the West Side of Vice City 
   without cheating. After completion of the taxi mission you get the horn 
   replaced by a bouncy flying jumpy thing right? Now, to get into the film 
   studio with a taxi. Through the blue grilled gates and below the stone 
   arch you can fit a Kaufman cab, I assume that any other cab will fit if 
   this fat bastard does! Then, as per your solution, you line up the Packer. 
   Take a run from maybe half the distance you would with the PCJ-600 and 
   when you reach the top of the Packer's ramp, hit L3 or whatever button is 
   assigned to the horn and hey presto! I use a PS2 pad on the PC 
   incidentally.

   PS the first time I did this I flew over the right hand side of the bridge 
   using the PCJ-600 run distance."

| II.24.C. "The Ambulance" (PS2 and PC Versions Only)                      \
0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

One of my readers, Rondo, alerted me to another way to get to Vice City
Mainland early.....

  "I used "The Jump" to get onto the West Island before the bridges opened as 
   you described in your faq. However, on "gamewinners.com" a few months ago, 
   there was discussion of an easier way to get there. Go to the Ocean Beach 
   pier north of Cortez's boat with an ambulance, back up to the gate, jump 
   on the top, then jump "through" the fence. Works every time. Grab the boat 
   at the dock and cruise over to the Boatyard at Vice Port, run it up the 
   ramp and jump off. Get the chopper from VCN downtown and go anywhere you 
   want."

I gave it a try and found that this is a pretty effective way to get to Vice
City Mainland. The thing about it is that you're probably not going to get
through on the first try.

Just keep jumping at the fence and you will eventually get through.
Apparently you take advantage of some glitch to get through the fence but if
it works don't knock it.

And, according to readers Cristian Luis Barreto and Gui Ritter, this trick
works for the PC version. Sadly, I have not been able to get this to work on
the Xbox version.

If you go to Vice City Mainland early and immediately purchase the Hyman
Condo then you may encounter the Hyman Condo Glitch.

At the top of the Hyman Condo is where you can find your Weapon Icons. If you
purchase the condo when you make your way to Vice City Mainland early then
you should see four of them (Body Armor, Chainsaw, Python [.357],
Flamethrower).

However, if you manage to unlock any more Weapon Icons, by collecting Hidden
Packages while unofficially on Vice City Mainland, then they will *NOT*
appear on the top of the condo.

But you can get around this by waiting until you have unlocked all seven
Weapon Icons before buying the Hyman Condo. When you purchase the condo after
acquiring at least seventy Hidden Packages then all seven Weapon Icons will
appear at the top of the building.

0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

Listed below is the list of things you can do while on Vice City Mainland:

  >>Collect fifty one Hidden Packages.
  >>Do nineteen Rampages.
  >>Do thirteen Unique Stunt Jumps.
  >>"Brown Thunder" helicopter vigilante mission (max 150 armor) (if you 
    managed to acquire all 100 Hidden Packages and get the Hunter without 
    being killed).
  >>Do the Escobar International Airport Top Fun Van side-mission.
  >>Do all three Hyman Memorial Arena side-missions.
  >>Do the "Trial By Dirt", and "Test Track" vehicle side-missions at The 
    Dirtbike Track.
  >>Purchase two properties (Hyman Condo and The Skumhole Shack).
  >>Rob seven stores.

Listed below is the list of things you can do prior to doing any of the Main
Story Missions (including Vice City Mainland):

  >>Collect all 100 Hidden Packages (plus all Weapon Icons and vehicles 
    unlocked).
  >>Do all thirty five Rampages.
  >>Do up to thirty one (or thirty four if you get the one from "G-Spotlight" 
    plus the two at the Vice City Marina) (out of thirty six) Unique Jumps.
  >>Do the Pizza Delivery Mission (max 150 health).
  >>Do the Ambulance Mission (Infinite Run feature enabled).
  >>Do at least 100 Taxi fares done (unlocks the Super Jump feature).
  >>Do the Vigilante Mission (max 150 armor).
  >>Do the Firetruck Mission (Fireproof feature enabled).
  >>Do all three Top Fun Van side-missions.
  >>Do all three Hyman Memorial Arena side-missions.
  >>Do all four vehicle side-missions ("PCJ Playground", "Cone Crazy", "Trial 
    By Dirt" and "Test Track").
  >>Purchase all seven properties.
  >>Rob all fifteen stores.

This should get you roughly 40% completion and about $250,000 to $300,000 (if
you just did it up to Level 12 in Vigilante Mode to acquire 150 armor) or
many millions (if you decided to do the "Brown Thunder" Vigilante Mission or
take advantage of the Cone Crazy Glitch (PS2 Original Version) to get lots of
money).

| II.24.F. Doing Four Additional Unique Stunt Jumps                        \
0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

As noted, you can do thirty one out of thirty six Jumps. I felt that you
couldn't do any more than that before doing the Main Story Missions.

I was wrong.

I've had at least two readers suggest to me that you can get four of the
remaining five Unique Stunt Jumps. One of those readers, Mark Coiley, came up
with some clear instructions on how to get those four Jumps:

     "You can get a Packer on the East Side in the early game. Get into 
      Interglobal Film Studios (as if to do PRI-J1 or get PRI-H3 or PRI-H4). 
      Get the Packer from the NW corner of the lot and drive it over to the 
      main gate on the east wall, positioned so that you can drive up the 
      ramp and jump the gate. Get out and walk around until the Packer 
      respawns in the NW corner, then drive it up the ramp made by the first 
      Packer. It fits through the gate (surprisingly), and you now have a 
      non-captive Packer on the East Side without doing any story missions. 
      (Annoyingly, you can *not* save it at the Ocean Beach Apartments 
      safehouse. I tried, but it disappeared.)

      Drive the Packer down to the piers at Ocean Beach. Smash the 
      northernmost tree, and park the Packer with its head near the tree and 
      its tail pointintg toward the pedestrian path. Grab the nearby PCJ-600 
      and jump over the fence onto the pier. You can now do OCB-J18 and 
      OCB-J19. (You could also use this method to get to the West Side early, 
      but the method in your guide is much easier.)

      Second, you can do SFI-J20. Getting to Starfish Island is easy via
      helicopter, but I can never get a motorcycle to spawn. So take a Packer 
      and a PCJ-600 from the West Side to the Starfish Island Bridge and park 
      the Packer at the north (left) corner of the blockade, pointing NW. 
      Then it's easy to jump onto Starfish Island with the PCJ-600 and do 
      SFI-J20. (And if you have enough hidden packages, you can take the Sea 
      Sparrow from the mansion to get back to civilization.)

      Finally, if you park a Packer just south of Schuman Health Care Center,
      facing north on the little paved driveway just east of the main N/S 
      street, you can Super Jump a Taxi onto the roof of Schuman Health Care 
      Center, then use it to do DTN-J21.

      This leaves only DTN-J24, and I can't figure a way to do it. (Even a
      helicopter can't go high enough.)"

  Very simple really. Make your way to Rafael's for your new duds. As you 
  exit then you will see somebody drive up on a Freeway.

  You can take it if you want to make a good entrance. Drive to the Vice City 
  Marina and near the pink circle at Pier 2 (do not get off the bike if you 
  want to use it later) to get things started.

  During the cutscene, you will be introduced to most, if not all, of Vice 
  City's power players. After the cutscene ends then you exit the yacht with 
  the Colonel's daughter, Mercedes. If the bike is still there after the 
  cutscene ends then simply get on and Mercedes will follow.

  You can take any of the cars as well if you want instead of using the 
  motorcycle. The only difference is a slight change in the dialogue between 
  Tommy and Mercedes.

  Drop her off at The Pole Position Club to successfully complete the 
  mission.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=======================>

  $100.

  And you made some new friends (including some you may have to kill later). 
  You will also have the Soiree Outfit icon available at Rafael's and the

  properties.

  Ken gives you your first possible lead into what happened. He tells you to

     "Anyway, he's got his nose so far up most of Vice City's ass that if 
      anybody knows the whereabouts of 20k's of coke, it's this guy, all 
      right? He's always at The Malibu."

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Drive to the Malibu Club to talk to Kent who happens to be some British 
  jerk. He then tells you to go talk to some chef on Ocean Drive who seems to 
  be quite pleased with himself lately and may have some info.

  Drive down to the blip by Ocean Drive and you will see a chef talking to 
  someone on a cell phone in the alley. Approach from the north, line up your 
  car with the chef, and go as fast as possible.

  When you get close enough then you will see the cutscene with the chef. 
  However, due to your momentum, you will run him over as soon as the 
  cutscene starts. Plus, you will automatically eject from the car, near the 
  now dead chef, with no damage.

  If you try to approach from the south then your car will automatically come 
  to a dead stop near the chef no matter how fast you are going and Tommy 
  will exit his car to confront him. You can jump out just before you reach 
  the chef (who will then get run over by your now driver-less car) but you 
  will damage yourself a little in the process.

  After taking care of the chef and getting his phone then you are approached 
  by a stranger named Lance. He is upset that you silenced a possible lead 
  and tells you that the both of you want the same thing and that you two 
  should watch each other's back even though you don't even know him.

  No sooner than you try to brush him off then three friends of the chef you 
  just whacked show up and Lance throws you a gun (Colt .45 [Pistol]) and 
  tells you to follow him.

  Kill the three chefs with the gun (or any other weapon in your arsenal) and 
  then follow Lance. Lance has a white Infernus and, once you jump into the 
  driver's seat, then you are instructed to drive to the Washington Beach 
  Ammu-Nation and then back to your hotel to successfully complete the 
  mission.

  If you have a Sniper Rifle or PSG1 [.308 Sniper] then park near the set of

  Chef and shoot him. Then go and get his phone.

  And you gained a new friend (?). You also get a call on your newly acquired

  conversation, he drops some clues about who may have screwed you at the 
  drug deal.

  Dan Stephen had some new information about this mission.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  As the mission begins, you will see some guy get run over by a car right in 
  front of you. This is so you can get a melee weapon (Hammer) that the 
  victim dropped. But you should already have a suitable weapon (Grenades). 

  There are two jurors that you need to deal with. All you have to do is 
  scare them (and no, you can't kill them).

  The first juror is just east of Ken's office near a restaurant. When you 
  get near the juror then you will see him talking to someone. You will also 
  see a Sentinel parked nearby.

  Drop a Grenade by the side of the Admiral furthest from the juror. Once the 
  Grenade blows then that will be enough to damage the car so the juror will 
  run away scared. That takes care of one juror.

  Reader Dan Stephen did have this to add about this part of this mission:

     "With the first juror at Ocean Beach, I didn't use your method. I used 
      the "beating the crap out of the car" method and I found that he will 
      try to make a getaway and will crash into a SPANDEX truck, and it will 
      immobilise the two cars and drop two more hammers."

  The next juror lives in Vice Point. Drive up to the hotel and make your way 
  to the juror's car. Drop a grenade near the car just like you did the first 
  one.

  When that blows then that will be enough to scare the other juror and 
  complete the mission successfully.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=======================>

  $400.

  You'll also get a call from Sonny on your cell phone (how did he get your 
  number anyway?).

  In addition, you can now buy Body Armor at all Ammu-Nations:

    >>Ocean Beach [Cost: $200].
    >>North Point Mall [Cost: $200].
    >>Downtown [Cost: $200].

  You will also get a mysterious call from someone who wants you to go to the

It seems that the chef you took the phone from was, in fact, a free-lance

decides to play along to see where it leads him.

There are a total of five Assassination Contact Missions in the game. Each
mission appears at various points during the story. Each one can be done at
anytime after they appear but my general rule of thumb is to do them as soon
as they come up.

However, there is one exception to this little rule for I saved one, "Waste
The Wife" (Assassination Contact), until after completion of the mission
"Phnom Penh '86" (Ricardo Diaz).

Each mission is represented by a phone icon where you are supposed to pick up 
the mission.

  Ken introduces you to a gentleman named Avery Carrington who happens to be

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  It seems that business is not good at SpandEx for the workers are in 
  revolt. This bodes well for you because it will give you a good cover to do 
  your mischief.

  Your mission is to destroy the three trucks that SpandEx has parked in the 
  front behind the fence. Even though the game prompts you to go to Rafael's 
  to get a worker outfit, you won't need one.

  Instead of hitting the other workers to start the riot, just go up to the 
  fence and use the Uzi 9mm [Uz-I] on the trucks.

  First, go to the right side and shoot up the front truck which, when it 
  explodes, will destroy both trucks. Then move over to the left side to 
  shoot up and blow up the remaining truck.

  When that truck explodes then the mission is successfully completed. In 
  addition, the gate will open and everybody will walk to the street 
  peacefully.

  If you've managed to get Package [VCP-H27] by going into the construction 
  site at Fairground Point and jumping onto the SpandEx Express roof then you 
  can try another option. Jump onto the roof of SpandEx Express and gently 
  drop some Grenades near the trucks from your safe vantage point.

  If you're in a nasty mood then you can shoot up the large group of workers 
  and guards for the hell of it (and to get extra cash and weapons) after the 
  mission is completed.

  Another idea is to use a Flamethrower. Go into the construction site and 
  head to the fence for the northeast part of Spand Express.

  Get close enough to the fence to get the message to start a fight with four 
  workers. Then shoot the Flamethrower at the fence behind the two vans.

  The flames will go through the fence and eventually destroy the vans. Then 
  go around the fence to the other side and do the same thing to destroy the 
  last van and successfully complete the mission.

  You'll also complete all of Ken Rosenberg's missions and open up Avery 
  Carrington's set of missions but I will save his missions until after doing 
  all of the Asset Missions.

  A little bit later, you will get a call from Colonel Juan Garcia Cortez and 
  that will open up his set of missions.

  In addition, the Coveralls Outfit icon spawn at the "Tooled Up" Hardware 
  Store inside North Point Mall and the following weapon can now be purchased 
  at the "Bunch of Tools" Hardware Store in Washington Beach:

Colonel Juan Garcia Cortez is the gentleman who hosted the party that you
attended at the beginning of the story. He gives you assistance in trying to
find out who busted your deal since he helped to set it up in the first
place.

In doing his missions, you will be helping him acquire certain items. But, in
the process, you will be getting lots of cash and information.

"Sir, Yes, Sir!" (Colonel Juan Garcia Cortez) can only be done after
completion of the mission "Phnom Penh '86" (Ricardo Diaz) and must be done
before completing the last of Diaz's missions ("Death Row" (Ricardo Diaz) and
"Rub Out" (Ricardo Diaz)).

The last of the Colonel's missions, "All Hands On Deck!" (Colonel Juan Garcia
Cortez), should be delayed until after getting the Fast Load feature (by
doing "Rifle Range" - later in the game) and completing Phil Cassidy's Asset
Missions (so you can buy heavy weapons) to make it easier on you.

The Colonel has a total of five missions and is represented by the "C" icon
at the Vice City Marina (where you went to during "The Party" (Ken
Rosenberg)).

  I had a reader named Luke Edwins offer me another way to do this 
  mission.....

     "For an easy way to do this is to grab a PCJ 600 or a car before you go
      into the pink marker and park your bike/car in front of the door. Then 
      go in and kill the two guys that attack you. When you come out of the 
      house, get into your car/bike and run Gonzalez over. He will die 
      staight away and then you don't have to go back for your car/bike. 
      ;-)."

  However, if you get a large enough vehicle, then you can actually block the 
  doorway at the bottom of the stairs and trap Gonzalez at the front door 
  where you can do anything you want to him.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Grab the Cheetah that is usually parked by Pier 2 (go into the nearby 
  underground parking garage to get a car if the Cheetah is not there) and 
  drive to Gonzalez's condo which happens to be the one just north of the 
  Malibu Club.

  Get into the pink circle and you will be on the top floor where you will 
  confront Gonzalez (with the Chainsaw). Quickly switch to your Uzi 9mm 
  [Uz-I] and jump over the railing and in the process you will get in front 
  of Gonzalez.

  Target and shoot Gonzalez. A solid burst of sub-machine gun fire will kill 
  him. Once he goes down then you will then get a 2-Star Wanted Rating so the 
  Cops will be looking for you.

  It should be noted that you can also get Package [VCP-H21] while up on the 
  condo roof if you were not able to get it beforehand (thanks to Jake Stutts 
  for pointing that out).

  Go back to ground level and get back in your car. Go back north up the 
  street and get the bribe that is in the trees north of the condo.

  You may either find the other nearby bribe (east of Links View Heights), go 
  to the Vice Point Pay 'N' Spray just north of that or just wait for the 
  1-Star Wanted Rating to disappear.

  When the Wanted Rating goes away then the mission is successfully 
  completed.

  $250.

  Plus, the Casual Outfit icon will spawn outside the Gash store inside North 
  Point Mall.

  In addition, you can now buy the Machete at the following Hardware Stores:

    >>"Bunch Of Tools" (Washington Beach) [Cost: $100].
    >>"Screw This" (Little Havana) [Cost: $100].

| Overview \

  The Colonel wants you to meet with a courier at the Washington Mall to pick 
  up some technology. The Colonel is also very pleased with your disposal of 
  Gonzalez.....

     "Tommy, you are like a pampas breeze that has freed me from the stench 
      of corruption, although, I must appear to mourn his passing and carry 
      on with business as usual."

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Grab the Cheetah that is usually parked by Pier 2 at the Vice City Marina. 
  Even though the game prompts you to go to Ammu-Nation for weaponry, you 
  will won't need any for this mission.

  Go up to the Washington Mall and park close to the north entrance then go 
  up to meet the courier who happens to be French. Unfortunately, some French 
  agents show up to crash the party.

  The courier makes a run for it and so should you since you waste time and 
  armor fighting these agents. Get back in your car and head north along 
  Washington Street.

  The courier is also heading north along this street and he happens to be on 
  a motorcycle as well. Hit him to knock him off then run him over to kill 
  him. Get out of your car to get the chips.

  When you do that then you will get a 2-Star wanted rating. Then get back in 
  your car and head straight to Pier 2 (skip the Pay 'N' Spray) to 
  successfully complete the mission.

| Reward \
0=======================>

  $500.

  You'll also get another phone call from the mystery fellow which prompts 
  the second Assassination Mission which is near Vice Point. But I will save 
  this one until after completion of the mission "Phnom Penh '86" (Ricardo 
  Diaz).

  In addition, you can now buy the following weapon at the Ocean Beach 
  Ammu-Nation:

    >>Shotgun [Cost: $500].

  The Colonel wants you to pick up a weapon at the multistory parking garage 
  and head over to a meeting place to watch over a deal being made between 
  Ricardo Diaz and some Cubans.....

  Uzi 9mm [Uz-I], Rocket Launcher (8+ rounds preferable) (optional).

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Head over to the multistory parking garage to pick up your weapon (a Ruger 
  [Kruger]). When you do that then Lance shows up again.....

     Lance: "Hogging all the action, I see..."
     Tommy: "Look, you wanna do something other than just shadowing me
             everywhere? Why don't you come along and show me if you're any 
             use."

  Get into the Infernus and drive to the meeting place which is near the 
  Washington Beach Police Station. When you get to the pink marker then 
  Ricardo Diaz and his men drive up in his white Admiral.

  After the cutscene ends then you are prompted to go to the pink marker at 
  the top of the nearby stairs. You will also see two health status bars for 
  both Lance and Diaz. If either one of them are reduced to zero then the 
  mission is failed.

  When you get to the top of the stairs then switch to your Uzi 9mm [Uz-I] 
  and go to the bottom of the stairs. Then place yourself at the corner of 
  the building right by the street.

  Keep a close eye on the radar. Two Haitian cars will show up first. When 
  they stop and exit the cars then quickly target and shoot the Haitians 
  before they can do any damage.

  After several seconds then a van will back up toward you from the east. 
  Shoot the Haitians as they exit the van.

  A few seconds later, another van will appear at the north entrance of the 
  alleyway. Again, kill the Haitians as they exit the van before they can do 
  any damage to Diaz or Lance.

  Several seconds later, another Haitian car appears in the intersection 
  ahead of you. Finish off the Haitians as they exit the car.

  Next, a couple of Haitians show up on motorcycles to take Diaz's money and
  Diaz takes out one of them leaving behind a Sanchez which you have to take 
  to chase the other one down.

  Since you can fire forward on a motorcycle then all you have to do is just 
  line him up and take him down. If you're fast then you should get him 
  before you reach the Ocean View Hotel. Get the briefcase and take it back 
  to Diaz to end the mission.

  As stated earlier in the guide, you can get the Everything-Proof Admiral 
  after completion of this mission. After you get the "Mission Completed" 
  message then run back to the street and take a left.

  Diaz's Admiral (the Everything-Proof Admiral), should be sitting (and empty 
  no less) underneath the signal light. Grab the car and store it in one of 
  your garages to keep it so you can use it later in some of the missions.

  If the EP-Admiral isn't at the signal light at the end of the mission then 
  park a car in front of Diaz's Admiral before giving him his money (thanks 
  to Mr. Spock).

  After the first wave of Haitian attackers then switch to your Rocket 
  Launcher.

  After several seconds, a van will back up toward you from the east. From 
  here on out all of the enemy vehicles can be rocketed. Rocket the van and 
  position yourself so you are looking due north up the alleyway.

  A few seconds later, another van will appear at the north entrance of the 
  alleyway. Rocket it and position yourself so you are looking at the 
  Washington Beach Police Station (due west).

  Several seconds later, another Haitian car appears in the intersection 
  ahead of you. Rocket it to destroy the car.

| Reward \
0=======================>

  $1,000.

  You also open up Diaz's set of missions when he calls you up shortly after 
  this mission to offer you a job. I'll go and do some of Diaz's missions 
  before I continue with the Colonel's missions.

  At this point, if you cause enough trouble, then you can now get a maximum 
  Wanted Rating of 5-Stars.

  In addition, you can now buy the following at the Ocean Beach Ammu-Nation:

    >>Ruger [Cost: $1,000].

  When Diaz called you on your cell phone then this also opened up another 
  section of Vice City.....

This loudmouth (that you saw at the Colonel's party) is the main drug baron
in Vice City. He is short of stature and even shorter of temper. His
unpredictable behavior keeps people in line as he is adept at destroying
various objects like TV's and VCR's (and pigeons).

This is the guy you must deal with if you want to make your mark in Vice
City, especially since you suspect him of being behind the ambush that ruined
your deal. He is represented by the "D" icon at The Mansion.

| Overview \
0=======================>

  Diaz suspects that one of his dealers is taking some of the profits for 
  himself and Ricardo is none too happy about it (he is not happy about a lot 
  of things it seems). He wants you to find out where he's taking the cash so 
  you can kill him later.....

  Tweaked things a little here.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Go over to the Thief's Apartment in Vice Point which will start a chase 
  across the rooftop. He will blow up some barrels near the end of the 
  rooftop but it can be easily avoided.

  When the both of you jump off the roof then the thief will climb into a BF 
  Injection and drive off. You must now follow him.

  Take the Faggio which just happens to be right there by the dumpster and 
  chase him. Keep him in your sight but don't get too close because he will 
  be shooting at you with a Ruger. Weave to make yourself difficult to hit.

  If you have the Infinite Run feature then you can do things a little 
  differently. When you get to the rooftop then just hold down Run and chase 
  after the thief. You will quickly catch up to and pass him.

  Don't hit him though. Just pass him. If he somehow stops running before 
  you get to the end of the rooftop then head back towards him. This will 
  trigger a cutscene of him shooting the red barrels and will get him running 
  again.

  When you reach the end of the rooftop then angle left and you should land 
  near the signal light when you jump off the rooftop. Get near the sidewalk 
  and wait. The thief will follow you off the rooftop and get into the BF 
  Injection that will spawn to pick him up.

  However, because of your position, then you can jack the vehicle and drive 
  off. Get some distance and turn around. Run over the driver (the one that 
  doesn't have the pink arrow) then park near the Faggio. Let the thief jack 
  you so he can drive off. Grab the Faggio and follow him.

  The advantage here is that the thief will have to drive himself to his 
  hideout and therefore you won't be fired upon. This will make the mission 
  easier.

  If you want to slow him down even further then, instead of just going back 
  to the Faggio after running over the driver, get some distance and shoot 
  out all four tires with the Sniper Rifle before driving back and letting 
  the thief jack you.

  After going around North Point Mall then you eventually end up at some 
  dilapidated mansions (The Mendez Brothers House) at the north end of Prawn 
  Island. When you get here then the mission will be successfully completed.

| Overview \
0=======================>

  The ever-so-pleasant Diaz ("FOOL! FOOL! FOOL! FOOL!") pairs you up with 
  Lance (going under the alias Quentin) to take down the thief you tracked in 
  the previous mission. The two of you board a helicopter with Lance doing 
  the piloting and you doing the shooting (using a mounted M-60).....

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  When you get to the ruined mansions on Prawn Island then you will be 
  confronted by several armed thugs who will shoot at your helicopter. You 
  will have to kill them all before you can move on to the next section of 
  the mansion area.

  The longer you stay in a section, the more opportunities they have to do 
  damage to your helicopter. If your helicopter's health reaches zero then 
  you will fail the mission.

  The helicopter will bob and weave so aiming is a bit difficult. When you 
  move from section to section then take advantage of barrels and vehicles 
  (which you can blow up) to make short work of these thugs.

  Eventually, Lance will let you down and you will have to go up to the top 
  of the mansion on foot to recover the money. Switch to the Uzi 9mm [Uz-I] 
  so you can kill these guys quickly. Go inside the dilapidated mansion, kill 
  everyone you see and get to the rooftop to recover the briefcase.

  After you get the money then Lance will pick you up and the mission will 
  end successfully.

  $2,000.

  In addition, you can now buy the following weapon at the "Screw This" 
  Hardware Store in Little Havana:

    >>Chainsaw [Cost: $500].

  After this mission then the hurricane that threatened Vice City will 
  dissipate thus removing the roadblocks so you can now go to.....

Based on the road signs above the bridges that connect the two major areas of
Vice City with one another, the area that is often referred to as the West
Side is actually called Vice City Mainland.

On the northern part of Vice City Mainland is the Downtown district. This is
where many corporations and businesses set up shop. It is also home to the
world famous Hyman Memorial Stadium where many concerts and events are held.

South of Downtown is Little Haiti where most of the resident Carribeans live
and work. The area has a lot of rundown homes and small businesses.

Little Havana is where most of the resident Cubans work and live. Although
this neighborhood is a bit rundown like Little Haiti, the residents do manage
to make it more colorful and lively.

South of Little Havana is the Viceport area. This is where the ships dock to
unload cargo from all over the world. The vast majority of this district
consists of large warehouses and the Vice City Port Authority buildings.

West of Little Havana is Escobar International Airport. This is where many
people fly in from all over the world to partake in the splendor that is Vice
City whether it be for business or pleasure.

Just north of Escobar International Airport is Fort Baxter Air Base. This is
the main military base for the Vice City area. It's primary purposes is to
serve as a deterrent to nearby communist Cuba and to help out law enforcement
in crisis situations.

From here, turn left and stop at the next three-way intersection. At the
south side of this intersection is:

  >>"Screw This" Hardware Store
    ***************************
      Location: (Central) Little Havana.
      Map: (E-2).
      Notes: This is where one can buy tools and equipment for home 
             improvement projects.

And this is where I am going to end the tour. You can head back from here to
return any of your Safehouses if you like.

Although I went over these properties during the tour, I felt that a detailed
breakdown of the places you can buy at this stage on Vice City Mainland would
be useful:

| Hyman Condo \
0=====================================>

  Location: East of the Hyman Memorial Stadium in Downtown.
  Map: (B-3).
  Cost: $14,000.
  Notes: One of the major Safehouses in the game. Has three garages (two 
         cars each), a Police Bribe in front, a helipad on top and some of 
         your Weapon Icons (plus your street clothes) will spawn here.

0===============0
| Skumhole Shack \
0=====================================>

  Location: On the rooftop of a building across the street north from the 
            Greasy Chopper in Downtown.
  Map: (C-3).
  Cost: $1,000.
  Notes: A basic save point. It is the hardest to find because it is hidden 
         on a rooftop up and away from the street.

Now, that I've familiarized you with Vice City Mainland, it is time to go
over.....

              Map: (A-3).
              Notes: Not too hard. Just be careful shooting near cars since 
                     their explosions can do some serious damage.

              Notes: Go to the Downtown Ammu-Nation to acquire your targets, 
                     because they spawn more easily here, so you can complete 
                     the Rampage. Having the Fireproof Feature really makes 
                     this Rampage easy.

              Location: Tucked in a corner behind the Moist Palms Hotel.
              Directions: As you enter you the hotel parking lot behind the 
                          Hotel then turn right and turn right again at the 
                          next corner to find the Rampage Icon in the next

              Map: (C-2).
              Notes: You will usually get Bikers when you do this Rampage and 
                     they are really not that hard to deal with. They will 
                     usually try to rush you and that makes for easy 
                     pickings.

            ****************************
              Location: Behind a small pale green house.
              Directions: From the three-way intersection at the southeast 
                          corner of Vice City Printing Works, take the road 
                          curve at the north side of this intersection and 
                          head east then turn left at the next three-way 
                          intersection.

                          Continue forward and stop at the next three-way 
                          intersection. At the southwest corner of this 
                          intersection is a small beige house.

                          Next door south of this beige house is the pale 
                          green house where you will find the Rampage behind 
                          it.
              Map: (E-2).
              Notes: The high number of bullets required to kill a gang 
                     member, plus the slow rate of fire, may drag this 
                     Rampage out a bit.

                     If you wait until after completion of the mission "Phnom 
                     Penh '86" (Ricardo Diaz) and have at least 90 Hidden 
                     Packages then you can use the Rhino to kill your targets 
                     instead and make this much easier. Park the Rhino close 
                     to the Rampage then activate it.

                     From there, head up to The Well Stacked Pizza Co. 
                     (Little Haiti) area and shoot the nearby buildings to 
                     create splash damage to kill the gang members.

              Map: (E-2).
              Notes: Run them through or behead them to make your kill count. 
                     Unfortunately, just like Rampage [OCB-R13], the gang 
                     members can really make this hard on you because they 
                     will be shooting at you and all you have is the sword.

                     Go up to a cluster, swing the sword a few times to see 
                     if you kill one or more of them and then run away when 
                     they start firing at you. Then go up to another cluster 
                     and repeat.

                     If you wait until after completion of the mission "Phnom

                     to the Rampage then activate it.

                     From there, just go down the nearby streets and shoot 
                     the nearby buildings to create splash damage to kill the 
                     gang members.

                          turn left at the next three-way intersection then 
                          stop at the next three-way intersection. Near the 
                          southeast corner of this intersection is an alley 
                          that leads to the center of the block ahead of you.

                          Go south into this alley and it will lead you to 
                          the basketball court area where you will find the 
                          Rampage.

              Notes: Not as fast as the Spaz Shotgun [S.P.A.S. 12] but still

                        with red and white awnings south of Cafe Robina.
              Directions: From Cafe Robina, head south to the next road curve 
                          where you will find this building. Use the set of 
                          stairs at the south side of the building to access.
              Map: (F-2).
              Notes: When doing the Rampage then you may have to jump to 
                     ground level to get some of your targets since they will 
                     run up to the building and you may not be able to shoot 
                     at them because of the bad angle.

            *************************************************
              Location: At the corner of a building.
              Directions: From The Well Stacked Pizza Co. (Little Haiti), 
                          head south until you get to the THIRD three-way 
                          intersection (the one with the signal lights). Then 
                          turn right and you should see the "Welcome to Hell" 
                          billboard as you approach the road curve going 
                          south.

                          As you near the billboard itself then you should 
                          see an alley with a green dumpster. Head west into 
                          this alley.

                          Continue forward then turn left at the next corner 
                          to find the Rampage.
              Map: (D-2).
              Notes: Pretty easy. The Spaz Shotgun [S.P.A.S. 12] makes quick 
                     work out of any gang cluster you aim at.

[EIA-R30] - Destroy 15 Vehicles [Mini-Gun]
            ******************************
              Location: By the bushes east of Fort Baxter Air Base.
              Map: (E-1).
              Notes: Get a PCJ-600 and drive to the Rampage. Point east when 
                     you park close to it.

                     Get the Rampage, get back on the bike and make your way 
                     to the EIA Main Parking Lot. When you reach the lower 
                     intersection then angle right and go up the concrete 
                     embankment.

                     There is a gap between the fence at the top and the end 
                     of the bridge. This makes an excellent shortcut.

                     When you get to the parking lot then destroy every car 
                     on the lot, including your PCJ-600, if necessary.

                     On occasion this Rampage is made more difficult by the 
                     fact that the hostile soldiers from the nearby Air Base 
                     can become a gang in this Rampage. This is because they 
                     have use of the M4 and will shoot at you with no 
                     provocation.

                     Make your way to the parking lot and get as far from the 
                     street as possible then destroy the cars and any 
                     soldiers that shoot at you.

                     If you wait until after completion of the mission "Phnom 
                     Penh '86" (Ricardo Diaz) and have at least 90 Hidden 
                     Packages then you can use the Rhino to destroy your 
                     targets instead and make this much easier. Park the 
                     Rhino close to the Rampage then activate it.

                     From there, just go down the nearby street and either 
                     shoot or run into vehicles to destroy them.

[EIA-R31] - Destroy 12 Vehicles [Rocket Launcher]
            *************************************
              Location: Near the front of the roof of the EIA Main Terminal 
                        Building.
              Map: (F-1).
              Notes: Use a PCJ-600 and use the ramp inside the Vice Surf 
                     billboard to get onto the roof. Go near the Rampage, get 
                     off the bike, activate the Rampage, get back on the 
                     bike, go to the ground and go the EIA Main Parking Lot. 

                     Destroy all the cars on the lot and destroy any cars 
                     that pass by on the road to complete the rampage.

                     According to Daniyal Faizee, if you waited until you 
                     have purchased Sunshine Autos, then you can make things 
                     easier on yourself. Store several cars in the garages at 
                     the dealership.

                     When you start the Rampage then head to Sunshine Autos. 
                     Open the garage doors and destroy the cars. Let the 
                     doors close then go back and re-open them.

                     The cars should be regenerated. Destroy them again and 
                     repeat the pattern until the Rampage is successfully 
                     completed.

                     If you wait until after completion of the mission 
                     "Copland" (Tommy Vercetti) (to acquire the Cop Uniform 
                     Icon so the soldiers don't shoot at you when going 
                     through Fort Baxter Air Base) and have all 100 of the 
                     Hidden Packages then you can use the Hunter to destroy 
                     your targets instead and make this Rampage much easier.

                     Fly up to the Rampage with the Hunter to activate it. 
                     Then go around and blast all of the cars you see with 
                     Rockets or the Machine Gun. If you don't feel confident 
                     in using the Hunter then just quickly fly back to Fort 
                     Baxter Air Base, get the Rhino and drive down the 
                     streets to destroy any vehicles you encounter.

                     And Gui Ritter had this additional strategy that can be 
                     of use:

                       "Get a helicopter and go to the rampage icon. Land on 
                        the east side of the icon, in the "valley" of the 
                        roof, and leave the helicopter with the door open 
                        (hold a movement button while leaving). Get the icon 
                        and enter the helicopter. Head to the bridge leading 
                        to Starfish Island and land close to the main street. 
                        Leave the helicopter and head to the walkway in the 
                        middle the street. Destroy the helicopter and the 
                        cars that spawn a little far in the street. Aim north 
                        and south to make the cars spawn.

                        Worked pretty good for me, no time shortage."

              Notes: Get a vehicle to block the road in front of the ship so

              Notes: Daniyal Faizee came up with an excellent way to do this

                     land on it.

                     When you activate the Rampage then get back in the

                     parking garage and exit your helicopter.

                     Destroy the chopper which counts as a vehicle. You will 
                     notice that there are no cars on the top level of the 
                     parking garage.

                     Head down to the third level. There are no cars here 
                     either so continue down to the second level.

                     Here you will find as many as seven cars to destroy. 
                     Destroy them then head back to the third level again. 
                     Cars should now appear on the third level.

                     Destroy all the cars you find here to successfully 
                     complete the Rampage.

                     If you wait until after completion of the mission 
                     "Copland" (Tommy Vercetti) (to acquire the Cop Uniform 
                     Icon so the soldiers don't shoot at you when going 
                     through Fort Baxter Air Base) and have all 100 of the 
                     Hidden Packages then you can use the Hunter to destroy 
                     your targets instead and make this Rampage much easier.

                     Fly up to the Rampage and activate it. Once you get the 
                     Rampage started then it is best to head west toward 
                     Viceport.

                     If you try to destroy cars in Ocean Beach then you run 
                     the risk of blowing yourself up on the trees and 
                     lightposts. Go through Viceport and toward the parking 
                     lots around Escobar International Airport.

                     Destroy all cars you encounter on the way to the parking 
                     lots. Once you get to one of the lots then destroy all 
                     of the cars there and any nearby cars on the road, if 
                     necessary, to successfully complete the Rampage.

After completing the above Rampages then you should now have done all of the
Rampages in the game. Now let's finish up the.....

| Downtown (DTN) \
0=====================================================>

[DTN-J21] - A concrete ramp
            ***************
              Location: At the northwest corner of the roof of Schuman Health 
                        Care Center.
              Heading: South to North and land on the roof of the building 
                       across the street.
              Map: (B-3).
              **NOTE: This Jump is unlocked when doing the mission 
                      "G-Spotlight" (Interglobal Films Asset) and can only be 
                      done during and after the mission.

[DTN-J22] - A set of stairs
            ***************
              Location: Across the street south of the Downtown Ammu-Nation.
              Heading: South to North and land on the roof of the 
                       Ammu-Nation.
              Map: (B-3).

[DTN-J23] - A metal ramp
            ************
              Location: On top of the large building across the street east 
                        of the VCN Building.
              Heading: North to South and land on the roof of the building 
                       with the searchlights.
              Map: (B-4).
              Notes: This Jump is usually done during the mission 
                     "G-Spotlight" (Interglobal Films Asset) but can be done 
                     before that.

                     Park a PCJ-600 at the Hyman Condo garage. Then go into 
                     Viceport and grab a Packer. After that then go to The 
                     Dirtbike Track.

                     At the southwest part of The Dirtbike Track there is a 
                     building that has a set of stairs sticking straight up. 
                     These will come down during the "G-Spotlight" mission. 

                     But what you need to do is park the Packer pointing 
                     south and to the right of the stairs. Run back to the 
                     Hyman Condo garage on foot and grab the PCJ-600.

                     To the north of the parked Packer, and running almost 
                     all the way to the north seawall, is level grass. Go 
                     north along this grass a little bit, turn around and 
                     then jump to the top of this building using the Packer.

                     After that then follow the stairs and ramps until you 
                     reach and complete Jump [DTN-J23]. Credit for this goes 
                     to Daniyal Faizee.

[DTN-J24] - Straight through a glass window
            *******************************
              Location: At one of the upper levels of The Rockstar Building.
              Heading: South to North and land in the hollow area of the 
                       building next door.
              Map: (B-3).
              **NOTE: This Jump is unlocked when doing the mission 
                      "G-Spotlight" (Interglobal Films Asset) and can only be 
                      done during and after the mission.

At this point you should now have all but three (and possibly two) Unique
Stunt Jumps done (don't forget to do the ones at Vice City Marina in Ocean
Beach). The remaining Jumps are done during the mission "G-Spotlight"
(Interglobal Films Asset).

With that done, let's move to the next chapter.....

| V.7. Vigilante Mission (Rhino)                                     [RHMP] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

If you collected at least 90 Hidden Packages then you should have spawned the
Rhino at Fort Baxter Air Base. This is one of the best Police Vehicles to use
for the Vigilante Mission because you are invincible inside the tank.

However, you can get smacked around a lot and risk getting Busted if you get
stuck because the Rhino is a slow moving vehicle for the most part. But you
can still get the Body Armor upgrade and plenty of money.

You can only do the Vigilante Mission in the Rhino after completion of the
mission "Phnom Penh '86" (Ricardo Diaz) because you can't generate any
targets for the Vigilante Mission on Vice City Mainland if you sneak there
early and you can't get a Rhino around the roadblocks so you can take it back
to Vice City Beach.

If you want to use the Rhino then you will still have to deal with the
hostile soldiers Fort Baxter Air Base if you want to get the tank.

However, it is much easier to get the Rhino than it is to get the Hunter
because the tank is parked near the gate. To get the tank (without the use of
a Police Uniform), get a fast vehicle and run through the gate and stop near
the Rhino.

Get out of the car and into the tank as fast as you can then speed away while
hanging a sharp left to exit the base. You should be almost out of the base
by the time the game generates any soldiers to shoot at you in which case you
should be safe.

When you start the Vigilante Mission then just run into your targets instead
of shooting them.

You'll probably end up jacking your Wanted Rating up to 6-Star but nobody can
hurt you while you are in the Rhino. Although, as it was pointed out by Rich
Williams, the Rhino appears to be weaker in the PC version.

Even so, just chase your targets and destroy whatever gets in your way. Then
the only matter is how long you want to do the Vigilante Mission and how to
get rid of the Wanted Ratings when you decide to call it quits.

 /=========================================================================\

| V.8. Vigilante Mission (Hunter - "Brown Thunder")                  [BRTH] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

The Hunter attack helicopter is by far the best vehicle to do the Vigilante
Mission in. As noted before, this vehicle will start to spawn at the back of
Fort Baxter Air Base after the acquisition of all 100 Hidden Packages.

If you're lucky enough to acquire a Hunter without the benefit of a Police
Uniform Outfit (or wait until you reach far enough into the Main Story
Missions to get the Police Uniform Outfit Icon) then you can do what is known
as "Brown Thunder".

When you press Activate Vehicle Mission then the words "Brown Thunder" will
come up on your screen. This is just a name for the Hunter Vigilante Mission.
This does NOT make it a separate vehicle based mission.

In this section I will go over on how you can use the Hunter to not only get
max armor but lots (and I mean lots) of money quickly.

It should be noted that, if you have the PlayStation 2 (Original) version,
then you can take advantage of the Cone Crazy Glitch (explained later) which
will let you make a lot more money than "Brown Thunder".

However, if you try to do "Brown Thunder" while still officially considered
to be on Vice City Beach (if you made it to Vice City Mainland before you
officially open it (by beating "Phnom Penh '86" (Ricardo Diaz) and managed to
get the Hunter), then you will notice that there are no targets generated.
You will have to fly back to Vice City Beach before you are provided with
anything to shoot at (the same problem exists for the Firetruck Mission).

It is more difficult to do "Brown Thunder" on Vice City Beach than it is on
Vice City Mainland. This is because of the narrow streets and other obstacles
(trees, lightposts, signal lights) which can prove deadly when using Rockets.

If you made it to Vice City Mainland early and did "Brown Thunder" on Vice
City Beach then you may want to do enough to get the max armor (at level 12)
and stop and wait until Vice City Mainland is officially opened to do it
again for money.

When you start the mission then there is one car you have to destroy at
first. If you do enough damage to the car then the occupants will get out and
try to attack you.

Most times this is not a problem except if they are carrying Shotguns. Even
though the Hunter is one tough bird, a couple of good shots from a Shotgun
will still bring you down. Ridiculous, yes.

So, if they come out packing Shotguns, then quickly fly away before they get
a good shot and, if they do, then use the Health Code to fix your machine.
Then try another, more careful approach and blast them.

Later on in the mission there will be two cars (grouped together) and then, 
as you approach Level 12, three cars (grouped together). Then at Level 13, 
two cars will be spawned in one area and the third car will be spawned away 
from the other group.

This is the way it will be for the remainder of the mission regardless of how
many levels you choose to go. Note where the two car part of the group spawns
at.

Where it spawns is where it will spawn at EVERY level for the remainder of
the mission regardless of where the third car spawns. For example, if it
spawns in front of the Deli at Level 13, then it will spawn there at Level
14, 15, 16 and so on until you end the mission. This information is very
important if you want to make millions here.

Another important thing to know is that, as you progress through the levels, 
then your level rewards will increase. More importantly, there is no max on
the rewards.

It won't max out at $10,000 per level, $50,000 per level, or even $100,000
per level. The longer you go, the higher your rewards will be.

To make my point, I will list the stats for the "Brown Thunder" mission I did 
for this guide:

     Levels Completed: 120
     Kills: 1,378
     Time Left: about 3 hours and 37 minutes
     Reward for completing Level 120: $720,000
     Cash Score: $29 million plus

As you can see, you can rack up some serious cash. If I completed Level 121
then my reward for that level would've been around $750,000.

Who knows how much your reward would be for Level 200 or even Level 300 if
you decide to push it that far?

You may have also noticed the amount of time left which is also pretty
substantial (The time rolls over at 99:99. During my mission I rolled 
it over twice plus additional time beyond that).

Because of the speed of the Hunter plus the rockets (which make quick work of
your targets), you can progress very quickly allowing you to accumulate a lot
of time.

Now, that you know this, the next question would be: where would the best 
place be to set Level 13 at? The answer to that is: the Escobar International
Airport tarmac.

It has wide open spaces with few obstructions to fly into and it has no
civilian and Cop cars so you can keep the Wanted Ratings under control.

Unfortunately, I have no method to get Level 13 set at the Airport 100% of 
the time. The best thing I can do is to keep the action as close to the 
airport as possible to increase the chances of setting Level 13 there.

You can start by pressing Activate Vehicle Mission over the Airport instead
of any other part of the city. If the cars look like they are heading toward
the Airport then wait until they get as close as possible before destroying
them.

But there is also something else that happens if you set Level 13 at the 
Airport that is very interesting. You will notice that the third car will 
disappear almost as quickly as it appears.

It seems that, if you set Level 13 at the Airport tarmac, then the third car
will end up being spawned over the water somewhere near Viceport! This makes
things even easier for you but I should note that this occurs roughly 80% of
the time not 100% so every so often you will have to leave the Airport to
chase the third car.

That's fine with me since it will give the game a chance to clean up the mess
you are making over the Airport. If you're good at piloting then you can just
sit near where the first group spawns and destroy them as they appear.

You can progress very quickly through the levels this way. You can probably
do eight to twelve levels before being forced away to get the third car that
has spawned on land instead of over the water.

So far, I have identified three spawn points on the tarmac.....

  >>Near the planes parked at the west terminal.
  >>To the west of the small radar post (near the west terminal).
  >>Near the helicopter pad (south of the west terminal).

In addition, the cars will go on a circular path within the tarmac area 
making them easy to destroy or leave behind to go chase after the third car
(or getting rid of a Wanted Rating). If the spawn point is by the radar post
then there is a glitch that I have to tell you about.

Every so often the third car is spawned on land. But, on a couple of
occasions, the third car is spawned INSIDE one of the large buildings (on the
west side, near the ship, of the very large building that runs east-west) in
Viceport.

You can shoot at the building to try to cause the occupants to get out of the
car to see if you can kill them with the concussion force of the rockets.
Unfortunately, I was unsuccessful on both attempts because I somehow ended up
wrecking my chopper flying over and shooting the building.

This only seems to happen if the spawn point is set by the radar post. It
doesn't happen if the spawn point is set  at the other two identified points
(so far).

If you need to get rid of any Wanted Ratings, especially at 3-Star, then
there are three chopper obtainable Police Bribes that will help. Each of
these Bribes  are floating in the air near jump ramps.

The first one is situated east of Sunshine Autos behind the apartments. The
other two are part of Unique Stunt Jumps [LHI-J25] and [LHI-J27].

There is also a neat little trick that you can use to help keep the action 
near the Airport in the early part of the mission (pre-Level 13). If you 
engage a group near the west side of Fort Baxter Air Base and end up over the
water as you destroy them then you will notice that the timer will freeze and
no groups are generated.

When you get back over land again then the timer will unfreeze and criminals
will be generated once more. What I do when this happens is fly out a little
more over the water and fly due south and fly back over land at the southmost
end of the runway. This helps keep the action close to the Airport so I can
try to set Level 13 on the tarmac.

With the above information in hand then you can make millions of dollars
easily and quickly. This will make things a lot simpler especially when it
comes to weapons, properties, and, of course, the final mission "Keep Your
Friends Close....." (Tommy Vercetti).

When you acquire the Hyman Condo then you have access to three garages that
can hold multiple cars. It is also a good idea to try to find and save hard
to find cars for the Sunshine Autos car lists which you will do later in the
game.

All the cars listed in this chapter appear at random.

You don't have to spend large chunks of time trying to find them. You can
acquire them while doing other things like doing Rampages or Unique Stunt
Jumps.

Below is the list of cars you should try to get prior to getting the Sunshine 
Autos property:

0==========0
| Esperanto \
0=====================================>

  Description: Looks like an old Cadillac. Big and long.

0======0
| Idaho \
0=====================================>

  Description: Big like the Esperanto but has a white roof that slopes in the 
               back.

0===============0
| Blista Compact \
0=====================================>

  Description: Small compact car with a rounded end.

0======0
| Virgo \
0=====================================>

  Description: Looks very similar to the Esperanto but has a thin white 
               stripe that runs along the sides of the car and goes around 
               the tops of the wheels.

Most of the other cars on the four lists are fairly easy to get during the 
course of the game. It's just that these cars that are listed spawn less 
frequently and are harder to get.

| V.10. The Hyman Memorial Arena                                     [THMA] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

In the northwest section of Downtown is the Hyman Memorial Arena where you 
can do three vehicle related side missions that will get you closer to 100% 
completion.

You can't get into the arena until 8 o'clock (20:00) in the evening.

As you approach the stadium then look up to the billboard that's just over
the road leading to the arena. This will tell you which activity is currently
at the arena.

The best way to do these events is this: save at the Hyman Condo when the 
time is near 14:00 (so, when you get back, the time is near 20:00). Then do
the event posted.

If you blow the event or end up with undesirable results then simply reload
from the previous save point. Repeat until you get the desired results for
that event.

Here's the rundown on the three events:

0=========0
| Hot Ring \
0=====================================>

This event is a twelve lap race around a short track. You start in 16th Place
and you must be in the top three to be successful. However, you must be in
first place and win the race outright to climb toward 100% Completion (thanks
to Gary Paydon for pointing that out).

This can be a frustrating event because getting smacked by a car can spin you
around and lead to getting repeatedly hit by oncoming cars thus causing
serious damage and loss of position.

Skip the pit stop and use the Health Code if necessary when it is safe to do
so.

When you see a group of cars in front of you getting into some wrecks then
slow yourself down to help you avoid the cars better. Slowing down will help
you to keep control of your vehicle if you get hit while trying to get around
the out-of-control cars.

This also makes it easier to advance, especially at the beginning of the
race, when it seems that all the cars are smacking each other to get up in
position.

0===========0
| Blood Ring \
0=====================================>

This event is an old-style demolition derby in which you must hit the yellow
markers to try to get the time over one minute to end the event. You also
have to deal with the other cars that are trying to hit and damage you. You
are going to be hit and spun around a lot.

The best advice is to just keep moving no matter what. Hit reverse if your
target is behind you instead of trying to spin into position.

Don't worry if your car is flipped onto its roof. The game will automatically
flip it back onto the wheels. Despite all the chaos, this really isn't a
difficult event.

0==========0
| Dirt Ring \
0=====================================>

This event is essentially a stunt track with walls, jumps and loop-de-loops.
There is no time limit but you can earn $50,000 if you can do this in under
five minutes. You can also earn $10,000 if you do it under ten minutes and
$5,000 for times over ten minutes.

Most of these markers are in the racetrack in the middle which are easy to
get. However, one of these racetrack markers can only be acquired with a
wheelie.

Switch to the first-person view to do the loops. As far as the walls and
planks go, line yourself as carefully as possible and get some good speed to
go up them.

You will also need some patience as well. It will probably take a few tries
to get these right since you can easily fall off them.

However, you can still finish this with a time as little as two seconds with
no cheat codes. Glen T. Winstein pointed out a little trick which worked on
his PC version and works on both the PS2 and Xbox versions.

Get and save a Sanchez at your garage at the Hyman Condo. Make sure that the
Dirt Ring event is playing at the Arena.

Get on the Sanchez, drive to the Arena entrance and get off. When the
entrance opens then push the bike partway into the door. Now get near the
bike. 

As you get near the bike then the screen will start to fade as it begins the
event. When this happens then get on the bike.

If you do this right then you should be on the Sanchez you brought in as the
event begins. The "official" Sanchez should be to your right.

The first thing ahead of you is a jump through a ring of fire. Leave that one
alone. Go and collect the other markers.

You'll see that you can get them but there is no time clock present. The
clock only starts when on the "official" Sanchez".

So now you have all the time in the world to collect all of the markers save
for the one in front of the "official" Sanchez". When you get all of the
other markers then go back to the "official" Sanchez.

Get off your Sanchez and climb on the other one. Then jump through the last
marker to claim your $50,000 and a time of two seconds.

If you get ALL of the markers then switch to the "official" Sanchez you will
end up with a time of 0:00. However, even though you get the $50,000, the
stats for Dirt Ring will NOT count in your stat sheet so you MUST leave one
marker alone for the stats to count toward 100% Completion.

Although you can bring other bikes into the Dirt Ring, like the PCJ-600, ONLY
the Sanchez will allow you to pick up the markers.

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

To the north of Downtown is The Dirtbike Track which has a Sanchez and a 
Landstalker parked nearby. Each is a vehicle specific side-mission, one
called "Trial by Dirt" (Sanchez) and the other "Test Drive" (Landstalker).

0==========================0
| "Trial By Dirt" (Sanchez) \
0=================================================>

This involves you taking the motorcycle and going two laps in a clockwise
direction. However, there are considerable changes between the PS2 Original
and the PS2 Double Pack versions of this mini-game:

   >>PS2 Original Version
     ********************
       There is also a stat glitch concerning the Sanchez mission. If you do 
       the mission then you will notice that the stats for this mission will 
       not appear on your stat sheet. It only appears after you do the "Test 
       Drive" mission but the time will match that of the Landstalker. 

       In addition, you will have to deal with red barrels near the end of 
       each lap plus rain and Haitians on black Sanchez's will appear on the 
       second lap.

   >>PS2 Double Pack, Xbox Version and PC Version
     ********************************************
       [PS2 Double Pack Version Only] - The stat glitch has been fixed.

       The barrels, rain and Haitians on motorcycles will not show up when 
       you do "Trial By Dirt" the first time. On your second run through, the 
       barrels will appear. If you beat your best time then the rain will 
       appear on your next run. If you beat your best time again then the 
       Haitians on motorcycles will appear on your next run.

0===========================0
| "Test Drive" (Landstalker) \
0=================================================>

This mini-game requires that you take the Landstalker to go through the
course in a counter-clockwise direction.

If you beat your record then red barrels will be placed near the front of the
course when you make an another attempt. If you break your record again then
a black Rancher will chase you around the course on your next attempt.

When you do both of these missions then simply take it slow. You are only
setting the benchmark to beat for further attempts. You only need to complete
each side-mission once to have it count toward 100% Completion.

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

The third and final Top Fun mission can be found on the Escobar International
Airport grounds near the entrance of the EIA Freight and Cargo Terminal. It
may not be there when you try to find it the first time so go around the 
grounds and go back.

0==========================================0
| RC Raider (Escobar International Airport) \
0=================================================================>

This is an obstacle course using an RC helicopter. Here you can take your
time because you aren't racing against anything.

One of the problems here is that you can't change camera modes to get the
best angle. When in tight areas then make very small careful movements.

Patience is the best advice here. This may take awhile but, once you finish
this, then you won't have to worry about it again unless you want to try for
a better time.

 \=========================================================================/

Listed below are the seven stores to be robbed on Vice City Mainland. Again,
the best thing to do is to rob them all in one run and get it over with.

But, if you wait until completion of either the missions "Rub Out" (Ricardo
Diaz) or "Copland" (Tommy Vercetti), then you can take advantage of the No
Wanted Rating Exploit and rob all of the Stores without any interference.

Below is the list of stores from north to south:

              three-way intersection then stop at the next three-way 
              intersection. At the northwest corner of this intersection is 
              the Laundromat.

  to make it spawn, and save it at your Hyman Condo garage.

0======0
| Notes \
0=======================>

  Found a way to make this easier by pushing this mission a little farther 
  back in the guide.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Get your Rhino and go to Vice Point (being careful not to hit any other 
  cars) to pick up the mission. Re-enter your Rhino and go to the pink marker 
  near the Jewelry Store where Mrs. Dawson is shopping at. When she gets in 
  her car then follow her and hit her car to destroy it and successfully 
  complete this mission.

  She'll be driving normally because she doesn't know she is a target. She 
  only drives fast when you first hit her.

  Of course, when you smack her with the Rhino, then you destroy her car 
  before she even knows what hit her. This makes the mission very easy 
  considering that she will usually stop at the nearest signal light allowing 
  you quickly hit her car.

  Then go back and park the Rhino back at your Hyman Condo garage so you can 
  use it later.

0=========0
| Overview \
0=======================>

  The Colonel wants you to acquire another piece of technology for him. He 
  also tells you that Diaz may indeed have been behind your ambush (you need 
  to have this piece of information before doing "Death Row" (Ricardo 
  Diaz))......

0=======================>

  I have another method to doing this mission thanks to Tow Wang.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  The technology the Colonel wants is a tank. It is being delivered somewhere 
  and is protected by a convoy of soldiers. At the time you begin this 
  mission, the convoy is going south down the main road on Vice City Mainland 
  towards a large garage in Viceport.

  Reader Glen T. Winstein gave me another method that a friend of his, 
  HandsomeRockus, uses.

  Take the Cheetah that spawns near the Colonel's yacht and drive to Vice 
  City Mainland. Go north along the southbound lane until you encounter the 
  convoy.

  Slow down and park the Cheetah in front of the tank itself then exit the 
  car. When the driver of the tank leaves to move the Cheetah then get inside 
  the tank and floor it. The other vehicles of the convoy will try to stop 
  you but will end up destroying themselves when they hit the tank.

  When you enter the tank then an auto-destruct sequence starts so you have 
  to act fast. Head to the red dot within Little Havana which is a storage 
  building. When you get there then put the tank into the building and get 
  out to end the mission.

  Then there's this interesting method by Tow Wang:

     "I did this mission with a Hunter. The convoy was parading through a big 
      wide avenue, and there was plenty of opportunity to lower the Hunter to 
      just-above ground-level, behind the convoy. A pair of rockets blew up 
      the rear truck, and I strafed both columns of soldiers with the 
      auto-targetting gun in a matter of seconds. I got out, and used the 
      sniper rifle to kill off a few more soldiers that remained, and 
      actually had to WAIT for the tank driver to get out so I could steal 
      it."

0=======0
| Reward \
0=======================>

  $2,000.

  There is still one more mission left for the Colonel, "All Hands On Deck!" 
  (Colonel Juan Garcia Cortez), but I will save that for later. For now, 
  let's return to Diaz.

  A gentleman by the name of IncredibleHoke posted the following information 
  on the GameFAQs Vice City message boards and I gave it a try.....

     "and for the fastest boat, u dont even have to pull the switch, all that 
      u do is drive straight in an get out of your car right next to the 
      fence next to the boat, then push triangle and the boat drops with u in 
      it, i've done this mission without any gunshots at all, as a matter of 
      fact i didnt even know there was a switch until my friend told me of 
      it"

  I also decided to remove a couple of the strategies used in previous 
  versions and streamline this chapter.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Take a car and drive to The Boatyard. Drive through the opening, run over 
  one of the guards and stop at the overturned rowboat near the Fastest 
  Boat. Get out and run over to the fence, in the corner, right by the 
  Fastest Boat.

  When you get in the corner then press Enter Vehicle and you will 
  automatically jump in and gain control of the boat. You will also drop the 
  boat into the water and get a 3-Star Wanted Rating in the process.

  But you can easily do a straight shot to The Mansion, despite the Police 
  Boats trying to chase you, to successfully complete the mission.

  bank. They are doing menial jobs or taking vacations as a cover while they 
  plan and bide their time.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  Machine Gun (Sea Sparrow), Rockets (Hunter).

0==========0
| Prep Work \
0=======================>

  Get a Sea Sparrow, or if you're fortunate enough, a Hunter and land in the 
  Washington Mall parking lot by the ringing phone.

0======0
| Notes \
0=======================>

  Added additional information when I experimented with using the Hunter.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  After getting your assignment then get back into the Sea Sparrow and 
  proceed to your first target, Mark Griffon. He is working on a billboard 
  near the mall and doesn't stand a chance against the Sea Sparrow's 
  Chaingun.

  A single rocket from the Hunter will also do the job.

  Your next target is Nick Tanner who is working for DBP Security. He sees 
  you and flees in a Securicar. A few seconds with the Sea Sparrow's Chaingun 
  will make short work of him.

  If you angle your Hunter right, when doing the approach from the west, then 
  you can destroy his car, as well as Nick, with a rocket before he can try 
  to get away.

  Your next two targets are Marcus Hammond and Franco Carter who are parked 
  in a Bobcat near the jewelry shop in Vice Point. One of these guys will 
  jump out to shoot you if you are spotted but that doesn't matter since you 
  are in a Sea Sparrow and another dose of the Chaingun will take care of 
  these knuckleheads.

  If you angle your Hunter properly during approach then you can destroy the 
  truck with a rocket before they know what hit them.

  Your next target is Nick Kong who is on a boat near the Washington Street
  bridge. Go southwest so the boat will be on your left as you approach so 
  Nick can't see you. Then use your the Sea Sparrow's Chaingun to destroy 
  the boat. 

  A couple of Hunter rockets will also make quick work of the boat.

  Your last target is Charlie Dilson who is riding around in the Washington 
  Beach area on a motorcycle. This one is a little tricky because motorcycles 
  can be tough to hit with the Sea Sparrow's Chaingun. But keep chasing 
  and shooting at him and you will eventually nail him to end the mission.

  A Hunter rocket will be the fastest way to destroy him. Just let him go in 
  front of you and angle down at the right moment when firing and he's toast.

| Overview \
0=======================>

  Diaz wants you to take the boat you just acquired for him and meet with a 
  supplier who shows up once a month. The supplier only deals with the first 
  boat that shows up so you will have to be fast because the other dealers 
  will be trying to get to him first as well.....

| Notes \
0=======================>

  Recently I got this e-mail from another reader, Ronn.....

     "After trying the left and right channels numerous times by following 
      the other boats and failing, I decided to take advantage of the 
      Squallo's speed. Going to the far left under the Starfish Island and 
      Leaf Links bridges then jumping the narrow part of Leaf Links island, I 
      got to the supply boat well before the other boats.... not even close. 
      Easy for those beginners who have trouble with boats."

  This actually works pretty well and I made a change to my strategy.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  When you get to the boat then you will find that Lance is there also (the 
  instrumental portion of the beginning of Wang Chung's "Dance Hall Days" is 
  a nice touch). After the cutscene ends then you will have to outrace the 
  other boats to the dealer. You drive and Lance shoots.

  When you start the mission then go straight north and go under the leftmost 
  part of Island Bridge (East). Then go under the rightmost part of the Links 
  Bridge (near the Predator Police Boat).

  You can't jump the island but instead follow the curve going right and go 
  under the two bridges connecting two areas of the Golf Club. Then go left 
  and straight toward the dealer.

  If you do this right then the other boats will be left far behind you. Once 
  you get to the supplier then you and Lance switch places. He drives and you 
  shoot.

  Now you have to make it back to The Mansion in one piece which is made
  difficult by the fact that the other dealers are gunning for you. The fact 
  that the Health Code will NOT work for this part of the mission makes it 
  even more difficult.

  Shoot the gunner and then the driver of the boat behind you. That boat will 
  slow down becoming an obstacle for the other boats behind it.

  Lance will prompt you about gunners on the jetty but I ignore them and 
  focus on the chopper that has just appeared overhead. Shoot the gunner and 
  then the chopper to destroy it. I found that I'm more successful doing it 
  this way.

  You will have one more boat to face during the stretch run to The Mansion. 
  Like the first boat, shoot the gunner and then the pilot. After that then 
  it is smooth sailing to The Mansion to successfully complete the 
  mission.....

     Lance: "Good shooting, my friend. You're a real, proper, grade A 
             lunatic."
     Tommy: "Well, thank you."

0=======0
| Reward \
0=======================>

  $10,000.

  In addition, the Tracksuit Outfit will now spawn at the Jocksport in 
  Downtown. Lance will also call telling Tommy that they can take down Diaz. 

  A little bit later Tommy will get a call from Kent Paul concerning 
  Lance.....

| Overview \
0=======================>

  This is part one of a two-part mission that will change the course of the 
  game. Even though the mission starts at the Malibu Club with Kent Paul, it 
  technically falls within Diaz's line of missions.

  When you talk to Kent then he informs you that Lance tried to jump Diaz but 
  failed. He is being held at the City Scrap where he is being tortured. You 
  have to go rescue him.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  Machine Gun (Sea Sparrow) (optional), Python [.357], Uzi 9mm [Uz-I] 
  (optional).

0==========0
| Prep Work \
0=======================>

  Get a Sea Sparrow and land it by the Malibu Club prior to starting the 
  mission (optional). Acquire the Everything-Proof Admiral, at the end of 
  "Guardian Angels" (Colonel Juan Garcia Cortez), and have it stored in a 
  garage (optional).

| Notes \
0=======================>

  Andre Delarue wrote to me about a method using the Mini-Gun:

     "Just happened to get my hands on GTA Vice City again last night and 
      finally beat the Death Row mission in a different way than you 
      suggested. Problem was that I never had enough hidden packages to get 
      the sea sparrow so I had to think of something else. I got the MiniGun 
      from the Ocean View Hotel, picked up 500 rounds, saved the game, picked 
      up another 500, saved the game, picked up another 500, saved the game, 
      picked up another 500 and went going. I drove to the Malibu club, where 
      the mission starts and then headed off from there to the junkyard. Any 
      car that is not too fast ( to avoid losing control ) will do to get 
      there with enough time... I run the car down the road in front of the 
      junkyard, make a quick exit and see my car crash into the couple of 
      cars parked in front of the junkyard. Then I just pull out the MiniGun, 
      fire at the cars until they explode and my way into the junkyard is 
      clear. When right in , take a turn to the right and start blowing away 
      everything that comes along. Five or six crooks it takes, then further 
      on... I make my way through the junkyard, NOT BLOWING UP the junkyard 
      truck. When in front of the building I kill the last goons in front and 
      inside of it, and then I rescue Lance. I tried switching to a lighter 
      weapon whenever there were no crooks to shoot to make my way quicker 
      through the junkyard but managed it also to go through carrying the 
      MiniGun all the time. Once Lance is freed I jump into the junkyard 
      truck and head to the hospital. The advantage is that the car is right 
      there and can take a few hits. Made it with the junkyard truck at the 
      first go...."

  I haven't actually tried this myself but the strategy looks to be pretty 
  solid so I included it here to give you another option to play with.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Get back into the Sea Sparrow and fly to the City Scrap. You will also see 
  a bar indicating Lance's health. As the mission progresses then his health 
  will get worse so you need to act fast. The Sea Sparrow will allow you to 
  fly straight to the City Scrap in the fastest possible way.

  As you approach then use your Chaingun to clear out the yard of Diaz's 
  goons. Use the Health Code, if necessary, if you take on too much damage. 

  Land near the building where Lance is held and get out. Use the Python and 
  kill the remaining goons near Lance so you can rescue him. Tommy is rather 
  upset that Lance spoiled their plans but Lance counters.....

     "He killed my brother. What do you expect me to do, mow his lawns?"

  I guess you can't really blame Lance for that.

  Get back into the Sea Sparrow and Lance will get in with you. Then just fly 
  straight to the Hospital in Downtown to end the mission. If you want to be 
  nasty then shoot up the cars that pursue you if you decide to fly out by 
  the main entrance.

  Why not get a Hunter instead? In addition to the difficulty of getting one 
  without a Police Uniform, the Hunter only seats one as opposed to the Sea 
  Sparrow which can seat two.

  When using the EP-Admiral then drive as fast as possible to the City Scrap 
  using the Links Bridge. When you get there then drive-by and run over all 
  of Diaz's goons.

  They can fire all they want but can't hurt the car. When you get to where 
  Lance is then position your car so you can drive-by his captors. Drive 
  inside and exit the car near Lance to rescue him.

  Get Lance and re-enter the Admiral. When you exit the City Scrap then 
  several of Diaz's goons will chase you in their cars.

  Just stand still and go into drive-by mode to shoot up and destroy their 
  cars. The explosions won't hurt you so this becomes easy. After you destroy 
  the last car then head over to the Hospital to successfully complete the 
  mission.

  Save the EP-Admiral for future use then grab another car to get to the next 
  part of the two-part mission.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=======================>

  None but you can get a little bit of money when you kill some of the goons 
  near Lance.

| Overview \
0=======================>

  The second part of the two-part mission begins at the "D" near Diaz's 
  mansion. Lance has packed a small arsenal in the trunk that you may need to 
  finally take on Diaz and kill him for what he did to the both of you.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  Python [.357], Rocket Launcher (optional), M60 (optional).

0==========0
| Prep Work \
0=======================>

  None.

0======0
| Notes \
0=======================>

  Didn't have any rockets when I did this mission on the Xbox. I just had the 
  M60. This gun worked pretty well and less hazardous than the Rocket 
  Launcher.

  This is one of two missions that have the No Wanted Rating Exploit.

  To take advantage of the No Wanted Level Exploit do NOT use the Sea 
  Sparrow. Instead, enter The Mansion from the ground floor.

  Once the interior of The Mansion loads up then you can turn around and 
  leave the same way you came. Lance will be okay where he is.

  You will notice that the Wanted Rating stars will blink but no Cops will do 
  anything to you. There are also no pedestrians but plenty of cars.

  You can easily rob all of the Stores without any interference you if choose 
  to do so.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Make your way to the back of The Mansion, going along the east side and 
  towards the back, killing any goons that get in your way with your Python 
  [.357]. Get into the Sea Sparrow and fly up to the roof and land. Go into 
  the roof entrance and make your way to the main hall.

  When you get there then you will actually be on the top level of the hall 
  and can easily get rid of all of Diaz's goons before Lance can catch up 
  with you. Switch to your Rocket Launcher or M60 and make your way to the 
  small set of stairs on either side of the hall which will start the 
  cutscene.

  After the cutscene ends then aim at Diaz and hit him with a rocket. He'll 
  go down but he is not out so rocket him again. The second rocket will 
  finish him off. A few shots from the M60 will take him down also.

  After that then he will crawl about and complain about what you have done 
  to The Mansion and tells you that he could have had you made. But the both 
  of you decide that Diaz's time has come to an end as you two make sure that 
  the last thing he sees are the barrels of your guns.....

     "Say goodnight, Mr. Diaz!"

0=======0
| Reward \
0=======================>

  $50,000.

  And The Mansion is now yours. At some point afterward, Kent Paul calls 
  telling you that he is working with some major recording artists and that 
  you should pay him a visit. This opens up the Love Fist Missions but I will 
  save them for later.

  A little bit later, Sonny calls. He hears of what you have done and points 
  out that he hasn't forgotten about you even as you forge your own path.

  In addition, you can now buy the following weapons at the Downtown 
  Ammu-Nation:

    >>Python [.357] [Cost: $2,000].
    >>MP5 [MP] [Cost: $3,000].
    >>M4 [Cost: $5,000].

  And finally, you can now reach the Wanted Rating maximum of 6-Stars.

When Tommy arrived in Vice City, he was screwed and left with nothing. Over
the course of the game he gradually acquired money, weapons and property in
an attempt to repay Sonny and get at the people responsible for his
situation.

But, as Tommy found out more about the people who ran things, especially
Diaz, then he realized that taking over Vice City for himself would be much
easier than he thought. And a lot better than working for Sonny Forelli.

Now that he has taken down Diaz and acquired The Mansion for himself he can
build his own empire and leave Sonny behind.

Your Weapon Icons will appear by the east side of The Mansion and you have
access to The Mansion's garage. You will also have your own access to an
Infernus and a Stretch.

A Maverick will also spawn at the top of The Mansion. If you have acquired at
least eighty Hidden Packages then the Sea Sparrow will spawn at the back of
The Mansion.

Like the Ocean View Hotel, the environment within The Mansion gradually
changes as the game progresses. This stuff is also listed in PSM (issue
#67).....

  >>Candy Suxxx's poster and pictures on the coffee table and desk that 
    appear after completion of the mission "G-Spotlight" (Interglobal Films 
    Asset).

  >>Used targets on the coffee table near the security monitor rack and gun 
    related stuff that appear on the desk after completion of the mission 
    "The Shootist" (Malibu Club Asset).

  >>Three awards appear on top of the TV in the rec room downstairs that are
    related to the Hyman Arena events.

  >>"Gash" bags, trash and an RC helicopter box will appear at random points 
    during the game.

After completion of the mission "Rub Out" (Ricardo Diaz) then three Chopper
Checkpoint missions appear. A fourth will appear after completing the mission
"G-Spotlight" (Interglobal Films Asset).

These are done using a plain Sparrow helicopter. These side-missions are very
simple checkpoint races that are done in each of the four major quadrants of
the city.

You can either do the three that open now or wait until the fourth opens up
and do them all at once. Start one and, when you are finished, then fly to
the next chopper and repeat until all the chopper side-missions are
completed.

These need to be done if you want 100% Completion. These side-missions are at
the following locations:

  >>Vice Point
    **********
      On the ground, in the courtyard for Vice Point Apartments.

  >>Ocean View
    **********
      On top of the pink building where Jump [OCB-J16] is located.

  >>Little Haiti
    ************
      On top of the building near where Jump [LHI-J25] is located.

  >>Downtown
    ********
      On the patio of The Rockstar Building which is unlocked after 
      completion of the mission "G-Spotlight" (Interglobal Films Asset).

Now let's go back to the Main Story.....

Now that Tommy has executed Diaz, he will have his own set of missions that
are represented by the "V" on or around The Mansion. There are a total of
five missions for him that include the final Story Mission, "Keep Your
Friends Close....." (Tommy Vercetti). 

The first three are part of the Protection Ring Asset Missions. The last two 
will be saved until all other Asset Missions and side missions are done.

Like any crime syndicate, Diaz had what is known as a Protection Ring. He 
extorted nearby businesses into paying "protection" money otherwise very bad 
things would happen to them. Now that Diaz is gone, these businesses no
longer want to pay protection money to anyone, especially Tommy.

The first three Vercetti missions has Tommy showing these businesses that
they need his "protection" and setting up his own Ring.....

  Some of Vice City's businesses that were paying protection money to Diaz 
  feel that they no longer need to give any to the new guy in town. Tommy 
  sets out to show them that the more things change, the more they stay the 
  same (for their sake).....

  John Nowakowski had this to add about this mission:

     "Regardless of what method you use, it is good to know that there are 
      two changes of outfit (one in the hardware store and one on the 2nd 
      floor) and an gun store (to replenish your vest.) Start on the East 
      side of the mall and take out the two stores on the 1st floor there. 
      Run to the other side of the mall, but stop for a change of clothes and 
      to replenish your vest at the midpoint on the first floor. Run to the 
      west side and take out the cafe, then the 1st floor of the clothing 
      store. Run up to take out the 2nd floor of the clothing store and grab 
      a change of outfit. Then run to the midpoint on the 2nd floor to end 
      with the record store."

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Tommy sets a time limit for himself at five minutes. All of the businesses 
  that need "protection" are all in the North Point Mall. Get into the white 
  Infernus parked near the door and quickly make your way there.

  Once inside then switch to your your Rocket Launcher and shoot at a 
  business to shatter all the windows. If you aim correctly then you can get 
  all the windows of a business in one shot. Switch to a light weapon and run 
  to another business and switch back to destroy the windows.

  Your Wanted Rating will rapidly increase and, by the time you are finished, 
  then it will be at 5-Star. But, when you successfully complete the mission, 
  then the Wanted Rating will disappear.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=======================>

  $2,000.

  In addition, you can now buy the following weapon at the Downtown 
  Ammu-Nation:

    >>PSG1 [.308 Sniper] (Cost: $6,000).

  And you also open up the remaining.....

Some of the businesses around town have a red icon in front of them that, up 
until now, you couldn't do anything with. After completion of the mission
"Shakedown" (Tommy Vercetti) then these businesses can now be purchased
allowing you to amass more wealth and climb closer to 100% Completion.

These businesses also have their own missions and tasks that need to be
completed before you can make money off them and add toward 100% Completion.

When you complete the Asset Missions for a business then you will see a Money
Icon appear in front of that business. Money will accumulate over time until
a designated maximum is reached

Just go up to the icon and collect your money to add to your wealth. In
addition, each Asset Property is also a save point just like the other places
you have brought.

There are a total of nine Asset Properties you can buy and this is the order 
they will be done in this guide. The Map co-ordinates refer to the printed
map that comes included with the game disc:

  Head over to the Airport where you pick up the fourth Assassination Contact
  Mission. A woman will go on over to a designated gentleman and ask for the 
  time.

  After she does and moves away then you must kill that person. A Sniper 
  Rifle is provided in one of the plants since you cannot bring any weapons 
  into the Airport.....

  None.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  When you get the Sniper Rifle then make your way near the target. But you 
  can't get too close otherwise he will see you and you will fail the 
  mission.

  Get about halfway on the Spook Meter, stop and then zoom in on your target 
  while waiting for the woman to do her thing. Once she does then kill your 
  target and his bodyguard.

  You will then get a 2-Star Wanted Rating. Get the briefcase your victim 
  dropped and get out of the Airport picking up the weapons you had to leave 
  outside. Get into your Sea Sparrow and fly to the Ammu-Nation in Downtown 
  to successfully the mission.

  If you try to go on the main road out then you will be ambushed by enemy 
  agents who also want that briefcase. They will chase you until they kill 
  you or you succeed. That is why you use the Sea Sparrow, so you can avoid 
  them outright by flying straight to Downtown.

  If your Sea Sparrow is destroyed or you have to get out before getting 
  busted then there is another way. Get a car and drive to the east tunnel 
  leading to Fort Baxter Air Base.

  Once the tunnel ends then get out and jump over the railing and onto the 
  grass. Go back south and along the outer part of the tunnel and you will 
  end up behind the Airport signs (near where Package [EIA-H80] is located).

  Keep heading east and you will end up in Little Havana. Jack a car and go 
  to Downtown (avoiding the Cops that will chase you) to successfully 
  complete the mission.

  If you still have the Everything-Proof Admiral then you can use it here 
  instead of the Sea Sparrow. The Cops and enemy agents can't damage the car 
  (unless they manage to flip it over or get you stuck so the Cops can bust 
  you) so this will make your getaway on the ground much easier.

  Go in the back and get a Sea Sparrow and fly to your target. There are two 
  security guards in the front of the Cafe.

  Fly low and shoot them with the Chaingun. You will get a 1-Star Rating so 
  fly east and over the water and wait until the Rating disappears then fly 
  back to the Cafe and land.

  After you talk to the owner then you have five minutes to kill the other 
  guards at DBP Security before they get away. Get back in your chopper and 
  fly west a couple of blocks then angle north. When you are just a little 
  north of their position then turn east.

  Across the street north of where they are standing is a building with a set 
  of stairs. Land on this building as close to the neighboring building (the 
  building rise on your left here) as possible and get out. Switch to your 
  Grenades and go about halfway to the southern edge.

  Then throw Grenades to kill them. If you're good then you can kill them 
  with one shot. But it usually takes three to five to get them all.

  After you kill all of them then a cutscene will show two more trying to get 
  away on motorcycles. If you're wondering why I didn't just use the Sea 
  Sparrow to kill the first group it is because that, after the cutscene 
  ends, then you will be placed on the ground even if you are in a 
  helicopter. This becomes annoying especially if there are a lot a Cops 
  around.

  Worse, if you land on one of the other nearby high buildings and take down 
  the first group from there, then you will be unable to get back to your 
  chopper when placed on the ground after the cutscene ends. This is why I 
  chose this particular building, the one with the stairs, to land on.

  This is so you can get back up to the rooftop and get back into your Sea 
  Sparrow and chase the other two guards.

  After you get back in the air then go after the other two guards who are 
  heading south along the main road. They will be heading toward The 
  Lighthouse and this is where you will eventually catch up with them. Shoot 
  at the both of them with the Chaingun and after you kill them then you will 
  successfully complete the mission.

  When using the EP-Admiral then just run over the two guards at the Cafe. 
  Then go into drive-by mode when at DBP Security to get rid of the other 
  guards. When chasing the motorcycles then pass them by and let them catch 
  up slowly so you can drive-by them off their bikes.

  In addition, you may be confronted by a Securicar allied with DBP Security. 
  If you destroy this Securicar then you will earn a $1,000 bonus.

| Reward \
0=======================>

  $4,000.

  In addition, you can now buy the following weapon at the Downtown 
  Ammu-Nation:

    >>Spaz Shotgun [S.P.A.S. 12] (Cost: $4,000).

  A little bit later you will also get a call from Lance who is upset over 
  how he is being treated and doesn't feel he is getting a fair slice. Tommy 
  tells him that he is screwing up and that he will not stab him in the back. 
  Lance doesn't want to hear it and Tommy.....

     "This is tough enough without you getting all emotional on me." 

  This may spell trouble.....

  Mike, one of Tommy's henchmen, screwed up an attempted bombing at one of 
  the stores in the North Point Mall. The Cops are all over the place looking 
  for the bomb but it will take time.

  Tommy decides to disguise himself as a Cop and Lance suggests that they 
  lure some into a trap to get some uniforms.....

| Notes \
0=======================>

  This is one of two missions that have the No Wanted Rating Exploit.

  John Nowakowski had this to add about using the Everything-Proof Admiral:

     "This was easy with the EPA. Have the EPA stored at the Leaf Links 
      garage. After you get the uniforms, head to the mall in it and pull in 
      front of the door near the Tarbrush Cafe facing West. After the bomb 
      goes off, run out hop in the car and take a left. Basically, you are 
      heading for the Pay N Spray south of you. Heading south take a quick 
      left then right to keep south, then a quick right and quick left to get 
      on the street where the Pay N Spray will be on your right."

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  You must get a Wanted Rating to attract some Cops. Get yourself (and Lance) 
  into the nearby car and go to the lock-up in Vice Point.

  As you drive to the lock-up then see if you can find a Cop car or a Cop on 
  the sidewalk. Shoot up the Cop car and kill the officer when he exits or 
  run over the Cop on the sidewalk to get an automatic 2-Star Wanted Rating.

  If you can't find any Cops on the way to the lock-up then head near the 
  North Point Mall where there are Cops galore.

  When you finally get to the lock-up, after getting the Wanted Rating, 
  then drive the car all the way inside and against the wall. Stay in the 
  car. Because of the 2-Star Wanted Rating then Cops will generate quickly 
  and at least two will enter the lock-up.

  Even though you and Lance are in the car you will still be able to jump the 
  Cops who enter. Sometimes, though, a Cop car will enter the lock-up and 
  block the door. In case this happens then back out and drive around the 
  block to get the lock-up cleared so you can try again.

  After you get the uniforms then you can do one of two things:

     >>As Josh suggested, head west and into the courtyard for Vice Point 
       Apartments, not far from the lock-up, and get the Sparrow normally 
       used for the Vice Point Chopper Checkpoint Mission (since you are 
       already in a mission then it becomes a regular Sparrow).

     >>Take advantage of the No Wanted Rating Exploit.

  With the No Wanted Rating Exploit you can cause as much chaos as possible 
  but generate no Wanted Ratings. You can also rob all fifteen Stores without 
  any interference. You can also cause destruction to jack up your Criminal 
  Ranking.

  However, if you choose to do that, then you will have to find a way to keep 
  Lance safe because he will follow you around and you risk killing him when 
  you try to go on a destructive rampage. During the Exploit there are plenty 
  of cars and a light amount of pedestrians.

  After the both of you enter the Sparrow then fly to the south end of the 
  North Point Mall. Between the two south entrances, there is a small 
  clearing you can park the chopper on. Exit the Sparrow and go to the 
  southeast entrance.

  The Tarbrush Cafe should be to your right when you enter the Mall. Go 
  inside and into the pink circle to set the timer.

  The timer is set at five seconds so you should run back to the entrance you 
  just entered from. Once the bomb goes off then you will now have a 5-Star 
  Wanted Rating and a whole bunch of Cops will be shooting at you.

  Run out of the Mall (make sure Lance follows you), kill any Cops nearby, 
  get back in the Sparrow and fly to The Mansion.
  
  Land at the top of the stairs near the pink circle and exit the chopper. 
  Then run into the pink circle to successfully complete the mission.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=======================>

  $10,000.

  And you have completed the Protection Ring Asset Missions. A money icon 
  will now appear in front of The Mansion that will generate a maximum of 
  $5,000 a day in revenue.

  In addition, the Police Uniform Outfit will now spawn in the Washington 
  Beach Police Station.

  Later, you will also get a call from Lance who is very emotional to the 
  point that he doesn't even want Tommy to talk to him. This definitely 
  spells trouble.....

  At this point you can't go any further in the Main Story until the 
  completion of the Print Works Asset Missions. In the meantime, I will do 
  all the other Asset Missions before I get to the Print Works.

BJ Smith, the soon to be un-retired football player, decides to sell his used 
car dealership to Tommy so he can focus on his comeback. There are no
missions per se but there are still things to do to get the most out of your
Asset Property.

Out in the back, there are ramps that lead to four garages (two cars each - 
for storage (maximum: eight cars)), a Pay 'N' Spray, another garage door (for
car collection - for the second half of this asset) and a large city map.

By opening up this asset now, I am beginning the process of officially 
fulfilling the car lists stated in the second half of this asset. Now I can 
start getting all of the cars that I have been storing at the Hyman Condo and 
placing them in the car collection garage (to complete a list) or in the 
storage garages.

You don't need to complete this asset before moving onto another. Just keep a 
lookout for the cars you need while doing other stuff.

The car collection lists comprise half of what you need to do to complete
this Asset Mission. The other half is the.....

Go down the ramp and turn right to face the city map. Step into the pink 
circle to activate the race-map. Use the D-Pad (PS2, Xbox) or keyboard (PC),
going right and left, to choose a course and press Run to activate. You will
then be prompted to get a fast car and go to the course.

There are six races total and they each require an entrance fee. But the 
pay-out is much larger (up to $40,000) so doing the races can be quite
profitable if you win.

You can enter the races as many times as you want to help increase your bank
account. Here are the listings for the six races complete with entrance fee
and pay-out winnings:

You can do the races one of three ways.....

  >>Simply get a fast car and go to the start line and test your racing 
    skills.

  >>Get a Rocket Launcher and make your way near the starting area. While 
    facing the front of the group then destroy the cars with rockets and then 
    go through the course unopposed.

    You may want to wait until getting the Fast Load feature (by getting 45 
    points at "Rifle Range" - opened after completion of the mission "The 
    Shootist" (Malibu Club Asset)) before trying to use the Rocket Launcher 
    method so it will be easier to destroy the cars at the starting line.

  >>If you don't want to use a Rocket Launcher and you don't want to sit and 
    wait for the race to start then you can do what Jason Corns 
    suggested.....

     "when you are starting a race, get a running start, and aim for the 
      space between the two lead cars. your speed will carry you through the 
      start point, and as soon as you touch one of the other cars, the race 
      will start. You will be going top speed when the race starts, whereas 
      the other cars will not only have to accelerate, but they will be busy 
      recovering from the crash. After that, it's just steady-as-she-goes, 
      and you can win the races pretty easily."

Just like in most GTAs, you can steal selected cars to fulfill certain
vehicle lists.

The lists for Sunshine Autos are broken into four parts and one part must be
completed before you can move onto the next. You can use the garages to store
cars for one list while working on another.

The first two lists are more difficult to complete because of all of the
randomly generated vehicles. The last two are easier because the vehicles
spawn in the same places.

When you bring a car into Sunshine Autos then you will receive $500 for it
regardless of condition. When you complete a list then you will also receive
a bonus of $20,000.

As each list is completed then you will receive a new car which spawns in the
showroom and an increase in the maximum revenue Sunshine Autos generates.

Here are the four vehicle collection lists:

Tommy decides to buy this business to diversify his portfolio a bit. He finds 
this business run by a woman with some, shall we say, issues......

  "A dirty, stinking, sniveling, snotting, vile, puking, crying, little
   baby! A baby - an awful, horrible, disgusting little boo hoo. Mommy
   doesn't love you. You little shit!"

  "And if I see a kid, I put him to good use. Don't I, kiddies? Yes - yes,
   I do. Mummy doesn't love you. She HATES you!"

He also finds out that this company is a front and instead sells "non-diary 
products", i.e. drugs, through the Mr. Whoopee trucks. You need to open this 
asset to gain access to the Mr. Whoopee truck for the fourth car list at

You need to take a Mr. Whoopee truck and find a place to do some business.
You need to get at least fifty customers (in one run) to successfully
complete the Asset Mission. Of course, doing business isn't always easy.

If you choose the wrong place then you may be accosted by gang members. In
addition, the more customers you get at one time, the more likely you will
attract the attention of the Cops.

Reader Gui Ritter had this to say about the Cops:

     "In the PC version, every 4 customers gives you a star. If you have got
      3 customers and the fourth comes alone, it doesn't matter, you will get 
      a star. But I don't know if the eighth customer gives you a 2-star 
      wanted level if you still have the first star, I didn't went that far. 
      That's the strategy I used:"

The safest place to do business is Viceport. There are no Cop cars (you still 
have to look out for foot patrols), plenty of customers and a nearby Pay 'N' 
Spray.

Press Horn to start the music and you will attract customers. Use the
Drive-By Mode and Look Behind buttons to keep a constant lookout for Cops. If 
one chases you then get away as quickly as possible and find some new
customers.

You will rarely get a 2-Star Rating and, by the time you find new customers, 
then the 1-Star Wanted Rating you occasionally get will usually disappear.
This Asset Mission is very easy and you should be done with this in no time
at all.

Glen T. Winstein says that the Moist Palms hotel area is also a good spot to
do this mission.

Once you have at least fifty customers then turn off the music and head back
to Sunshine Autos. Before you put the Mr. Whoopee in the shop, get out to 
complete the mission and get back in then place the truck in the shop to
complete the last vehicle list for Sunshine Autos.

Upon completion of the list then your max revenue for Sunshine Autos will
increase to its maximum of $9,000 and you will earn the Hotring Racer.

When you are done here then a Money Icon will spawn in front of Cherry
Poppers will generate maximum revenue of $3,000 per day.

When Tommy buys the Malibu Club, he realizes that it needs a little work to 
make it profitable. The banks won't give him a legitimate loan so he decides 
to make an "unauthorized" withdrawal - meaning: rob one of the banks. But he
needs a team to make it work.

The Malibu Club Asset has four missions total and they are some of the
hardest in the game. The first three concern getting a team together and the
last one is the actual holdup. And you also open up "Rifle Range" along the
way (to get the Fast Load feature).

  Tommy needs a safecracker to open the safe to the bank. Unfortunately, the

  transfer, at the Washington Beach Police Station. Tommy decides to grant 
  this guy early release.....

  Bragon pointed me in another direction, so to speak.

  One time I managed to do this mission without the Cop Uniform. It was a bit 
  of an accident.

  I walked into the Police Station with a weapon and it went to a 4-Star 
  Wanted Rating before I got the uniform. I managed to get the card and freed 
  Cam but the Cops did a lot of damage to me in the process. I managed to 
  successfully complete the mission this way but this method is not 
  recommended.

  Another reader, Martin W. Anderson, suggested that I use a helicopter and 
  park it on the rooftop east of the Washington Beach Police Station (where 
  you did the mission "Guardian Angels" (Colonel Juan Garcia Cortez)). Then 
  use it to get away and get rid of the Wanted Ratings and even take Cam with 
  you.

  However, it doesn't work very well. First, you get shot up a lot by the 
  nearby Cops. Second, Cam doesn't seem to want to go up the stairs. And, 
  third, nine times out of ten Cam would get his ass run over by pursuing Cop 
  cars as he tries to follow me.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  If you still had the Police Uniform Outfit that you got from "Copland" 
  (Tommy Vercetti) then you will notice that when you start the mission you 
  will auto-change back into the Street Outfit.

  Get into your fast car and drive down to the Washington Beach Police 
  Station. Park it about three car lengths from the stairs and point the 
  vehicle north. Then exit the car and enter the Police Station.

  Go left into the locker room to get another Cop uniform. Then head up the 
  stairs and straight across to enter the room that has the keycard you need 
  to release Cam (where Package [WSB-H15] is, or was, located).

  Go back downstairs and then to the lower level where Cam is being held. 
  Ready your Python [.357] and then release him.

  You will then get a 4-Star Wanted Rating and every Cop will be shooting at 
  you. Nail the guy at the desk then head back up to the lobby making sure 
  that Cam is close behind. Shoot any Cops that get in your way and make your 
  way to the front door.

  Once the both of you are outside then make a run for the fast car you 
  parked earlier, get in, go NORTH and leave Cam behind.

  Wait a minute, leave Cam behind you say? Yes, leave Cam behind.

  Even though the two of you are involved in this crime, the Cops are after 
  you and *ONLY* you. Cam could be shooting Cops left and right and they 
  won't even give him a second glance while the Cops would like to work you 
  over with a Nightstick (and God knows what else).

  So, even though Cam is in the middle of a bunch of Cops, he is quite safe. 
  If you wait for him to get in the car then the approaching Cop cars may ram 
  it into Cam, killing him and failing your mission.

  I had this happen to me several times which frustrated me to the point I 
  decided to try leaving him behind instead. This turned out to be the best 
  method.

  As I just mentioned, go NORTH not south. The Cops expect you to try to go 
  to the Ocean Beach Pay 'N' Spray so you can expect a lot of resistance. 

  But, as reader Bragon pointed out, going north is a slightly different 
  story. There is far less resistance plus you can hit at least two Police 
  Bribes on the way to the Vice Point Pay 'N' Spray to decrease the intensity 
  of the Police pursuit.

  When you have succeeded in getting rid of your Wanted Rating then go back 
  and get Cam.

  As you get back near the Police Station then any Cops that are nearby will 
  shoot at you even though you no longer have a Wanted Rating. But they 
  won't try to bust you.

  They may, however, bust a tire so be careful. When you get Cam then it is 
  just a smooth ride back to his place to successfully complete the mission. 
  One part of the team is now complete.....

     Tommy: "I'm gonna be doing a job and you're my safe cracker."
     Cam: "Beats losing my ass in a cell!"

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  When Tommy makes his way to the Rifle Range and encounters Phil, he disses 
  him a little bit and Phil responds by handing him one of his guns and 
  challenges Tommy to a shooting contest. The contest is broken into three 
  rounds.

  You must get at least 60 points total to succeed. This mission is the 
  easiest in the Malibu Club Asset.

  The first round has three moving targets that move left and right. There is 
  one in front of you, one a little bit farther and one a little bit farther 
  than that. Each target has five pieces that must be shot away before it is 
  counted as destroyed.

  The front target is worth one point, the middle is two points and the 
  furthest is worth three points. Focus on the furthest one exclusively.

  Don't bother with the two front targets. This will not only help you get a 
  lot of points in this contest but it will help you in the "Rifle Range" 
  side-mission (done later).

  You have two minutes to get as many points as possible. Running out of ammo 
  will also end the round. If you are good with your marksmanship then you 
  can get at least half of the 60 points required to succeed.

  The second round takes place in another part of the range that represents 
  a urban environment. There are six windows that targets will appear in and 
  they are worth one point each.

  The targets move slowly so they are not difficult to hit. Focus on the four 
  left windows and shoot the targets that appear in them.

  This will make this stage a little easier. If you are good then you may 
  surpass 60 points before this round ends.

  The third round also takes place in this area but you have to go near where 
  the second set of targets were. Here the targets move much faster and are 
  harder to hit.

  After this round is over then you are done with the mission. If you got 60+ 
  points total then you will accomplish your objective and Phil joins your 
  team......

     "Son, after shooting like that, if you asked me to be your wife, I'd say 
      yes."

0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Go back to the Downtown Ammu-Nation and back to the gun range to start this 
side-mission. "Rifle Range" only encompasses the section where you did the 
first round during "The Shootist" (Malibu Club Asset) so you don't have to 
worry about going to any other part of the range.

You have two minutes to get as many points as possible. Running out of ammo 
will also end the round.

Like before, focus only on the back target to be most successful. You succeed
if you get at least 30+ points to get a little money. But the real reward
comes when you get at least 45 points. Then you unlock the Fast Load feature.

The Fast Load feature eliminates the need to reload your weapon. If you have 
an Uzi with 2,000 rounds then, instead of reloading every 30 rounds (in which
case you are vulnerable, especially during a firefight), Fast Load will give
that Uzi what amounts to a single 2,000 round clip so you never have to pause
while firing.

Even better is what it will do to single shot weapons like the Sniper Rifle 
and the Rocket Launcher. These weapons have to reload (slowly I might note)
after every single shot. Fast Load eliminates the reloading and gives these
weapons rapid fire capability. This is especially useful on the Rocket
Launcher.

This is slightly easier on the Xbox version because you can see the slots in
the walls where the targets come from so you can better aim at the target
when it comes from the wall.

**IMPORTANT NOTE: You will need to acquire the Fast Load Feature to get 100% 
                  Completion. This side-mission is one that most people tend 
                  to miss when going after this goal.

And Cristian Luis Barreto came up with this little tip for doing this
side-mission:

     "when I did "Rifle Range" for the first time, I barely get 30-33 points 
      because of the first and second targets getting in the way of the 
      third. When I tried again, I shot the "bodies" of the first and second 
      target, leaving the "head" alone. Then it becomes easier for me, all I 
      had to do is checking the right side to aim for the third target's 
      head, shoot it and keep shooting for the body. When I had only 2 
      bullet's left, I shot the two heads remaining for an extra 3 points :)"

At this point you may get another call from your Assassination contact which 
opens up the last of the Assassination Missions.....

0=======================>

  Going from the back gate all the way to the roof is fraught with danger. 
  There are agents everywhere and you have to be careful and be a good shot 
  to make your way to the exchange.

  But you can simplify your task immensely by just heading back to The 
  Mansion and get a Sea Sparrow. Fly back to Cherry Poppers and approach from 
  the northeast.

  From this angle, all you have to deal with is just the people doing the 
  actual exchange.

  Use the Sea Sparrow's Chaingun to wipe them out (blow up the helicopter 
  there if necessary), land on the rooftop, get the case and quickly take 
  off again. Fly due east until you are over the water then turn south until 
  you are over the South Bridge and then west toward the Airport.

  This way, none of the other agents can get a shot at you as you escape. 
  From here, make your way to the landing pad at the Airport to successfully 
  complete the mission.

  You'll also complete all of the Assassination Contact Missions. In the end,

0=======================>

  I tried to do something different but things didn't turn out as well as 
  expected. Since Hilary's car is impervious to rockets and guns then I 
  decided to try using the Rhino.

  But, if I tried to leave it by the Washington Beach Police Station, then it 
  would disappear. I found that the garage at The Mansion was tall enough for 
  the tank.

  I backed it in, saving it in the process and drove to the Malibu Club to 
  start the mission. I zipped as fast as I could to my Mansion garage, got 
  the Rhino, drove back to the course (turning right near "Bunch of Tools") 
  and went the opposite way to see if I could ram Hilary head-on.

  I finally got my chance near Rosenberg's office and I managed to actually 
  destroy his car and in the process got into first place. Then I went back 
  to the second marker and went down the course to complete it.

  But, when I finished the race, then the screen said "Mission Failed" and 
  "Hilary is dead!". I "won" the race thus successfully completing my 
  objective but with Hilary dead I also failed the mission.

  The game then proceeded to try to load the cutscene that plays when you 
  succeed and the screen went black. However, with Hilary dead, the program 
  went "urk!" and the game froze with the black screen. Not quite what I was 
  hoping for.

  Another reader, peter parker, came up with an interesting idea for the PC 
  version.....

     "Forget switching cars (I haven't been able to complete this mission 
      switching cars). Get a 2 star wanted level with Police chasing you. 
      Make sure the Police are just outside the malibu club before you enter 
      it. Enter the club. Turn around and wait for the Police to start 
      shooting outside the club. When the first shot is heard the two doorman 
      will walk further into the club. Now start "The Driver" mission. 
      Because of all the Police on the streets you will soon outrace hilary 
      and the only thing you have to do is avoid accidents. Hilary and the 
      Police are now not as aggressive. Piece of cake."

  Tried it in both the PS2 and Xbox versions but didn't notice any major 
  differences. But this may be of some help anyway to those frustrated with 
  this mission.

  Another one of my readers, Richard Qin, suggested using the Hotring Racer 
  instead of the Cheetah when using the car switch method. I found that this 
  car is much better than using the Cheetah.

  It is as fast as the Cheetah (if not slightly faster), handles much better 
  (especially around corners), more durable and more solid which gives you a 
  better chance to avoid being spun out when trying to pass Hilary (should he 
  try to bump you out of the way).

  Reader Dawson Harris also suggested to me that you can get up behind 
  Hilary's bumper and spin him out by clipping one side of the rear bumper 
  (essentially doing the PIT Maneuver).

  In addition, I got this interesting observation from Tow Wang concerning 
  this mission and has some tips included:

     "I have software development experience, and I am very sure this game 
      only keeps track of characters and vehicles within a small radius of 
      Tommy's position in the "world", namely, things that are visible and 
      drawn on screen when Tommy looks around. I have been noticing that, 
      whenever I manage to trail Hilary within visible range, the game will 
      generate traffic in the streets. Hilary has to maneuver around the 
      traffic as long as you keep him in your sights, and he will often get 
      into accidents and spin out of control. If you fall so far behind that 
      Hilary goes out of sight ahead of you, he most likely will be able to 
      cruise through the race track unopposed, as the game engine does not 
      generate obstacles for the part of the world surrounding him, far out 
      of your sight.

      The strategy I've followed is therefore to follow him but not make any 
      risky maneuvers until reaching the southern-most point of the racetrack 
      in Ocean Beach. This is because in this first half  of the race, you 
      are racing through narrow streets with a lot of traffic and sharp 
      turns. Very often Hilary will collide with another car, and you can 
      pass him safely and gain lead on him.

      Then, in the second half of this racetrack, you are pretty much just 
      heading straight north, and I found that the Sentinel's speed is 
      adequate to keep the lead and outrun the police, of course provided 
      that you do not make a mistake and get spun out. I was able to beat him 
      several times using this strategy of waiting for him to make a mistake. 
      I did not have to switch cars, and only collected one bribe at a sharp 
      U-turn right before the next-to-last checkpoint. I think you recommend 
      going NORTH in mission "No Escape?" for the exact same reason."

  And John Nowakowski had this to add about this mission:

     "First, do NOT do this mission when it is raining. The rain doesn't 
      change how he drives, but will make you spin out more. Second, I won 
      this with a Stinger after trying the Cheetah a few times. The Stinger 
      seemed better able to withstand hits and stay on track. Third, I 
      noticed that there is always some point in the race where two cop cars 
      will close together from either side forming a blockade. This usually 
      happens just past Ocean Beach Mall when you are making a right, so cut 
      that corner! Finally, I noticed that Hil always drives on the street 
      (except when he makes a mistake) so the best advantage that you have is 
      to cut corners and use the sidewalk as an inside curve when it works 
      for you."

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  In order to get Hilary to join your team, you must outrace him. 
  Unfortunately, when you start the race, then you will be stuck in a 
  Sentinel and he will be in a fast Turbo Sabre.

  This mission can be frustrating because you can't block the road with a bus 
  and you can't shoot out his tires (his car is indestructible). And you 
  can't park a fast car nearby either (it will disappear).

  But that doesn't mean that you can't park a car SOMEWHERE that you can use 
  to beat Hilary. After some experimentation, I found that the no-parking 
  zone (where cars disappear if you try to leave them to use in the race) 
  goes only as far as the main intersection south of the Club.

  The best place to park the Cheetah or Hotring Racer is in the street in the 
  northbound lane with the back of the car touching the signal light next to 
  the Coin Laundry (where Jump [WSB-J6] is located) and angle your car so you 
  can go down the southwest street.

  After parking your car then run (*DON'T* jack a car or you will lose your 
  parked car) to the Malibu Club to start the mission.

  When you start the race then head to your parked Cheetah or Hotring Racer 
  as fast as possible. Stop as close as you can and switch vehicles. The 
  faster you stop and switch vehicles, the faster you can catch up to Hilary.
 
  However, while you are in the process of switching vehicles, then you get a 
  2-Star Wanted Rating for being part of an illegal street race. Of course, 
  the Cops are only after you. They couldn't care less about Hilary.

  What reader Gamester-007 noticed is that, at the first left turn, is 
  Rafael's. And right in front of Rafael's is a Clothes Icon. And using a 
  Clothes Icon will get rid of a 2-Star Wanted Rating.

  So, what he did is park a fast car near Rafael's, went back to The Malibu 
  Club to start the mission, stopped his Sentinel at Rafael's, use the 
  Clothes Icon to get rid of the Wanted Rating, switch to his fast car then 
  go after Hilary with no more Cop interference.

  But, after trying it his way, I found that parking the fast car near the 
  main intersection was still the best place. The reason is that you can 
  close the distance on Hilary sooner if you switch to a faster car near the 
  beginning and you won't lose as much time.

  Here's why. It takes about five to seven seconds to switch to your fast car 
  and about five to seven seconds to stop at Rafael's to change clothes.

  You are already partway down the course when you get to Rafael's. If you 
  try to get both the Clothes Icon and the fast car at the same time then you 
  lose about ten to fourteen seconds.

  What this means is that it will take longer to get to Hilary, even if you 
  are driving well, and you won't be able to catch him until you reach the 
  tail end of the course. If you are not that good a driver then you may 
  still lose the race even with the fast car and no Cops.

  But, by getting the fast car early, then you can make up most, if not all, 
  of the time you lost by switching cars and get close to Hilary by the time 
  you reach Rafael's.

  Now, instead of making up ten to fourteen seconds from Rafael's, it has 
  been reduced to five to seven seconds and, after switching clothes, then 
  you can pass Hilary sooner even if you are not a great driver.

  And, thanks to this new information, the basic outline for this mission 
  becomes:

    >>Park fast car near the main intersection.
    >>Run to The Malibu Club to start mission.
    >>Switch to fast car after the race starts.
    >>Make up lost time.
    >>Stop quickly at Rafael's to use Clothes Icon and get rid of Cops.
    >>Catch up to Hilary and pass him.
    >>Win race and laugh at Hilary.

  After you win the race then you get Hilary on your side and the team is 
  finally complete.....

     "Ok. I'll drive for you, but please, treat me bad."

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Get into the taxi parked outside and make your way to the bank. When you 
  get there then the team gets out and Hilary will drive around until you are 
  ready to make your getaway. Make your way near the bank entrance to change 
  clothes.

  Once the robbery starts then switch to your Python [.357], make your way 
  upstairs and then towards the manager's office to draw out the security 
  guards so you can shoot them now instead of dealing with them later. Kill 
  the other guards near the elevator and the last guard by the safe.

  Cam informs you that you need the bank manager to help in unlocking the 
  safe. Go back down to the manager's office to get him (grab the Body Armor 
  in the security room to the left if you need it) and lead him to the safe. 
  After that then go back down to check on Phil.

  Just as you reach the ground floor then the alarm is tripped and you will 
  end up with a 4-Star Wanted Rating. Switch to your Spaz Shotgun [S.P.A.S. 
  12] before entering the pink circle to start the next phase.

  When the SWAT comes rappelling down then shoot them quickly (the Spaz 
  Shotgun [S.P.A.S. 12] is very effective against the SWAT team). Once 
  they're gone then exit the bank.

  When you do then you will find that Hilary is nowhere in sight. But, just 
  as you begin to wonder whether Hilary abandoned you, he quickly shows up 
  and provides cover fire for you.

  Unfortunately, the Cops drop him and mow you have to do the driving. Shoot 
  the nearby SWAT team before getting into the taxi and make your way to the 
  Little Haiti Pay 'N' Spray to get rid of your Wanted Rating.

  After doing that then make your way to the hideout, Cam's place, to 
  successfully complete the mission. Be careful making your way to the 
  hideout though. Any SWAT members left behind may shoot at you even though 
  you no longer have a Wanted Rating.

  Go through Little Haiti and behind the bank to avoid this problem. Phil 
  cannot be killed (you need him for his missions - not to mention the fact 
  that it would leave a nasty continuity hole for GTA3.....) but Cam is 
  expendable. The ending to the mission changes slightly if Cam dies.

  If you want to hear the alternate ending (when Cam dies) but he survives 
  the robbery then here's what you can do. After getting rid of your Wanted 
  Rating then head back down to Cam's place.

  Shortly before you get there, hang a right down one of the side roads to 
  put you behind the apartment complexes. Get out of the taxi and your 
  remaining crew will follow.

  You can't auto-target either Cam or Phil with a pistol (so you couldn't 
  accidentally shoot them during the robbery). So you need to use a manual 
  targeting weapon like a Ruger [Kruger] or an M4.

  Better still, use the PSG1 [.308 Sniper]. Target Cam (the bald one) and 
  shoot him. Get back in the taxi and make your way back to Cam's place to 
  complete the mission.

  In addition, you can now enter the bank anytime you want and hang out in 
  the lobby. There's even some money ($1,000) in the bank manager's office. 
  The catch: the moment you get on the stairway leading up, you will be hit 
  with a 4-Star Wanted Rating (ouch)!

| Reward \
0=======================>

  $50,000.

  Now that you have completed the Malibu Club Asset missions a Money Icon 
  will now appear in front of the Malibu Club that will generate maximum 
  revenue of $10,000 per day.

  You also will get a call from Phil and this will open up his set of 
  missions. In addition, the Bank Job Outfit will spawn at the main office in 
  the Malibu Club.

Phil Cassidy is a redneck moonshiner and gunrunner. He is more interested in 
getting wasted on boomshine than anything else. He is represented by the "P" 
in Little Haiti and only has two simple missions.

  After nearly getting killed by an explosion caused by Phil's boomshine, 
  ("Never get a naked flame too close to one of Phil Cassidy's Boomshine 
  stills!) then Tommy decides to help Phil out and take care of some 
  gunrunners that are causing him some headaches.....

  Go to the Washington Beach Police Station and get a Cop Uniform. Then get a 
  Hunter and park it in the median of the main road east of Phil's Place. If 
  you park it any closer then it will disappear when you start the mission. 
  Run down the road leading to Phil's Place to start the mission (optional). 

  Acquire the Everything-Proof Admiral at the end of "Guardian Angels" 
  (Colonel Juan Garcia Cortez) and have it stored in a garage (optional).

0======0
| Notes \
0=======================>

  A very funny thing happened while using the EP-Admiral during one attempt. 
  When dealing with the goons on Faggios one of them entered the passenger 
  side of the Admiral while I was trying to speed away.

  Tommy snarled "You think that's a good idea?" Apparently not, for when the 
  goon closed the car door, then he went from being a goon to being an 
  unwilling passenger and started screaming! Hilarious!

  Not so tough now is he? I sped around for a while listening to his screams 
  and seeing what would happen. I eventually stopped, let him get out and 
  shot him when he did.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  The gunrunner has four trucks in two groups. Both groups are heading north. 

  One group is moving through Little Havana along the main road. Run as fast 
  as you can to your parked Hunter.

  Get in and fly slightly south until you see the first group. Shoot the 
  rockets and destroy both trucks. Leave the weapons where they are at and 
  fly north.

  Try not to leave any survivors. Any goons you leave behind will carjack a 
  nearby vehicle and pursue you.

  The second group is also heading north along the central road in Downtown 
  by the Police Station. You will notice that, when you attacked the first 
  group, then these guys disappeared from the radar but are still active.

  Rocket them, land your helicopter and get the weapons (M60, Ingram Mac-10 
  [Mac]) these guys dropped. The game will prompt that the gunrunners have 
  sent reinforcements to deal with you. Get back into your Hunter and fly 
  south back to the first set of weapons.

  These reinforcements will be riding Faggios and will chase you around. They 
  will come in groups of four as long as you have not picked up all the 
  weapons. Destroy one group and more will show up. There is a bonus, 
  however, if you kill any of these guys - $100.

  But, if you fly back to the first set of weapons and land quickly enough, 
  then you can get both weapons (Spaz Shotgun [S.P.A.S. 12], Python [.357]) 
  before any of these guys show up. And in doing so you will also 
  successfully complete the mission.

  When using the EP-Admiral then drive-by the trucks and goons. You can have 
  a lot of fun smacking the goons off their mopeds and gaining some bonus 
  money in the process. Just be on the lookout for Cops and be careful when 
  exiting the car to get the weapons.

  According to reader Cristian Luis Barreto you can also use the Rhino for 
  this mission and easily blow up the trucks and Faggios.

  Tommy decides to visit Phil who happens to be thoroughly wasted on his own 
  boomshine. His breath fumes are so potent, even Tommy is getting drunk off 
  of it.

  Phil wants to show Tommy a demonstration on some explosives but it is not 
  working because the batteries in his detonator are dead. Phil replaces the 
  batteries and manages to get it to work but ends up blowing off his right 
  arm in the process.

  You now have to get Phil to the hospital before he bleeds to death.....

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  The blurring and swerving effect you see is the result of the boomshine 
  fumes that Tommy inhaled (the blurring is much less in the DP Version 
  (PS2), Xbox Version and PC Version).

  You must take it easy and not over-steer but at the same time you must go 
  as fast as possible so you can quickly get Phil some medical attention. 
  Make your way to the main road (Bayshore Avenue) and go south.

  But, once you get to the hospital, then Phil protests and you now must make 
  your way to an old buddy of his that lives in Little Havana ("There's an 
  ex-army surgeon who owes me a few favors and a lawnmower."). As you get 
  closer to your destination then your vision will begin to clear up so you 
  can drive easier.

  After you drop Phil off then the mission is successfully completed.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=======================>

  $4,000.

  Now that you have finished Phil Cassidy's Asset missions, you can buy the 
  following weapons at Phil's Place:

    >>Remote Grenade [Cost: $1,000].
    >>MiniGun [Cost: $10,000].
    >>Rocket Launcher [Cost: $8,000].
    >>M60 [Cost: $8,000].

  The Weapon Icons regenerate quickly so you don't have to wait long to get a 
  lot of ammo for the weapons he sells.

  And, now that I have the Fast Load feature (from doing "Rifle Range" 
  earlier) and a place to quickly get lots of ammo for my heavy weapons, I 
  can finally do the last of the Colonel's missions.....

  The Colonel's skirmishes with the French, with your help of course, have

  Even though you have done some of his dirty work for him, he has fulfilled

| Notes \
0=======================>

  The road-blocking method, using a Coach to block the entrance to Pier 1, 
  will NOT work on the Xbox and PC versions. In addition, Glen T. Winstein 
  wrote me saying that he used the M60 with very good results.

  I tried it and found I could simplify things by doing away with the 
  road-blocking and using the M60 instead of using the Sniper Rifle/Rocket 
  Launcher method used in previous versions of the guide.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  The mission begins with a cutscene of the yacht pulling away. As you are 
  moving away then two black cars filled with French agents pull up to Pier 
  1.

  They exit their cars and head for some boats parked at the end of the pier. 
  When you gain control then switch to your M60 and shoot up the three boats. 
  They will blow up very easily when using the M60. 

  The next section takes place near another bridge. The agents have formed a 
  blockade made up of several small and medium sized boats. Focus on the 
  boats exclusively and ignore the agents that may board the yacht and just 
  shoot up and blow up the boats.

  After the last boat is gone then you will now have to deal with 
  helicopters. Look to the east and shoot down the first helicopter that 
  appears and do the same thing to the second helicopter when it appears. The 
  M60 makes quick work of the choppers.

  After that then you will now have to deal with a third helicopter. But this 
  one is a Hunter. Shoot up the Hunter and it will go down quickly like the 
  others. When the Hunter goes down then the mission is successfully 
  completed.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=======================>

  $5,000.

  In addition, you will be given a boat as a gift (you can't save it though) 
  and you have finally completed the last of the Colonel's missions.

  Now let's go to the next Asset Mission Property.....

Tommy buys this film studio because he knows that there are big bucks in 
pornography. This studio is being run by film director Steve Scott who seems 
to have a fetish for big sharks and mashed potatoes.

Tommy just wants him to focus on what's important - the sex ("Why'd you get
in this business, ya prick? Huh? For the pussy, that's why!").

But he needs to find some new talent and creative ways to get the word out
on this project. There are a total of four missions and is represented by the
clacker symbol on Prawn Island.

| Overview \
0=======================>

  Tommy doesn't like the actors that have been working on Steve's project so 
  he needs to get new ones. He hears that actress Candy Suxxx may be 
  available for a film project so Tommy decides to go and recruit her.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  MP5 [MP].

0==========0
| Prep Work \
0=======================>

  Get a Sanchez or PCJ-600 and save it in either the Hyman Condo or the El 
  Swanko Casa and save your game before riding to the film studio to start 
  the mission.

0======0
| Notes \
0=======================>

  None.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Go to the north part of Downtown (the V.A.J. Finance building) where Candy 
  is said to work. Stop near the pink circle and get off then walk into the 
  circle.

  You will then see Candy being dropped off by Congressman Shrub. She 
  will then come talk to you. She agrees to being in the film but she says 
  that you need to talk to her agent.

  Her "agent" is really her pimp who has just driven up. Angrily, he then 
  gets back in his car and flees but not before three associates come out of 
  his car to give you a hard time.

  Quickly get back on your bike and go after the pimp instead of dealing with 
  these guys (you will notice that the game has placed your bike near the 
  street at a certain angle during the cutscene regardless of where you 
  parked your bike before).

  As you chase Candy's pimp, you will see him tear through the traffic. Try 
  to get close enough to him to shoot him with your MP5 [MP].

  At some point he may suddenly stop. If you're close enough to him then 
  three more goons will come out of his car and go after you and the pimp 
  will tear off again.

  But, if he stops and you're far enough away, then no goons will come out of 
  his car but he will remain still. This means he is a sitting duck and can 
  be easily destroyed. If these goons do come out then just blow past these 
  guys and continue chasing and shooting.

  Once his car starts flaming then he will get out and run. Shoot him or run 
  him over to kill him.

  It kinda goes without saying that you should keep an eye out for the Cops 
  while you are doing all this because they can easily knock you off your 
  bike and bust you when you least expect it.

  When you finally get rid of her pimp then go back to the Hyman Condo to get 
  rid of your Wanted Rating (using either the Police Bribe or a change of 
  clothes). Then go and get Candy who will then climb on the back of your 
  bike.

  Now you need to get Mercedes who just happens to be having lunch at The 
  Well Stacked Pizza Co. (Downtown).

  When you get there then get off the bike and head inside. You will also 
  notice that across the street is a four-door car that has been placed there 
  for you.

  Talk to Mercedes who is more than happy to be in the film ("Of course, as 
  long as it's cheap and sleazy."). Walk back out and get in the car (making 
  sure the girls follow you) then drive to the studio to successfully 
  complete the mission.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=======================>

  $1,000.

  In addition, Sonny decides to give you another call. He is a little upset 
  that you haven't given him any consideration.....

     "WHERE'S THE GODDAMNED MONEY, WHERE'S THE GODDAMNED STUFF, AND WHERE'S 
      MY CUT OF YOUR NEW ACTION?!!!!"

  Tommy will have to deal with him eventually if he wants to keep his budding 
  empire intact.

     "Well, Candy is a natural and that new girl - she's insatiable! She went 
      through half the cast and crew before I even took a light reading." 

  .....but now faces the problem of getting the word out about the film. 
  There are a lot of flyers sitting on a table waiting to be seen but nobody 
  will let them be posted.

  But Tommy has other ideas.....

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Tommy decides to drop the flyers out of a seaplane and spread them out all 
  over town. There is one parked right outside the studio by the pier.

  The plane doesn't have good handling but, once you get it to top speed, 
  then it's not too bad. Go south on the water until you get up in the air 
  and at top speed. Then go north toward The Dirtbike Track.

  On your radar screen, you will see six blips - all on Vice City Mainland. 
  They are represented by blue globes (Starting Markers).

  When you fly into one then the flyers come pouring out. In addition, all 
  the other blips disappear and a red one appears (Ending Marker). Fly into 
  this red globe to stop the flow and go to another blue Starting Marker to 
  send out some more flyers.

  There are a total of twelve markers in all - six blue (beginning) and six 
  red (ending). You can do this in any order but the route outlined in this 
  guide is probably the best way to go:

  >>Starting Marker #1: North Dirttrack.
    Ending Marker #1: At intersection near VROCK.

  >>Starting Marker #2: At a corner near The Well Stacked Pizza Co. 
                        (Downtown).
    Ending Marker #2: At an intersection near The Well Stacked Pizza Co. 
                      (Little Haiti).

  >>Starting Marker #3: Near the "Welcome to HELL" sign in Little Haiti.
    Ending Marker #3: Above the Escobar International Airport terminal.

  >>Starting Marker #4: Near The Boatyard in Viceport.
    Ending Marker #4: Near the Deli in Little Havana.

  >>Starting Marker #5: Near the Bank in Little Havana.
    Ending Marker #5: Between the two large buildings on the road that leads 
                      to Phil's Place.

  >>Starting Marker #6: Above the Greasy Chopper in Downtown.
    Ending Marker #6: Above North Bridge (West).

  The best way to get Ending Marker #5 is to go far west and turn back east 
  so you can get a straight shot at the red marker. The rest of the markers 
  you should have no problems with (other than controlling the plane, that 
  is).

  I almost forgot to mention that you have a limited supply of gas for this 
  mission but, since this can be done quickly, then this really isn't much of 
  an issue. After doing all twelve markers then the mission is successfully 
  completed.

| Reward \
0=======================>

  In addition, you now have a Skimmer to play with at the pier by the Film 
  Studio.

  Congressman Shrub has decided to go after the Puritan vote and is proposing

  dirt.....

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  You will need to follow Candy to their "love nest" and the best way to do 
  that is with the Sparrow helicopter parked near Studio C. Once in the air 
  then stick close to the limo and see where it goes.

  It will eventually drop Candy off at the condo north of the Malibu Club 
  (where you did "Treacherous Swine" (Colonel Cortez) earlier).

  It turns out that the Congressman does indeed have a fetish (including 
  being called "Martha"). The game will then prompt you that the WK Chariot 
  Hotel across the street will make an excellent vantage point and a door 
  will be opened for you to get there.

  But, if you rotate slightly left, then you can see the large balcony in the 
  front of the hotel. Go through the gap in the trees and land your chopper 
  on the balcony.

  The top of the balcony and the top of the condo are about level. Get a good 
  vantage point to take the three pictures you need to frame him.

  Unfortunately, after taking the third picture, then you are found out by 
  his guards and they sic the FBI out on you thus jacking your Wanted Rating 
  to 5-Star. Not good, especially since you need to get back to your studio 
  with the pictures. Get back in your Sparrow and fly back to the studio.

  Don't fly over Prawn Island to get to your studio. There are agents posted 
  at the entrances and they can shoot you down with their MP5s.

  Instead, fly west over the water then turn north when you are close to Vice 
  City Mainland so your studio is northeast of you. Fly to North Bridge 
  (West) and turn right when you do.

  Then turn right again when Studio C is to your right and you should see the 
  pink circle ahead of you. Fly towards the pink circle while descending. You 
  should hit the ground when you reach the pink circle and, when you do that, 
  then this will successfully complete the mission.

  If you read the section "Getting The Police Cheetah or FBI Rancher" in the 
  Advanced Tips And Information chapter in Part I then this is a perfect 
  opportunity to get a FBI Rancher. Land the Sparrow near the south end of 
  the Links View Heights and acquire a FBI Rancher. Then use the Pay 'N' 
  Spray there to get rid of the Wanted Ratings.

  It should be noted, however, that you CANNOT use the FBI Rancher in a Pay 
  'N' Spray in the Xbox version so you may have to use another car inside the 
  Pay 'N' Spray to get rid of the Wanted Ratings. Just park the car inside 
  and get out before the garage door closes.

  Then, when you are ready to get rid of the Ratings, go back into your car 
  and the garage door should close. Then go back out and acquire a FBI 
  Rancher.

  Once you get a FBI Rancher then store it and head back to the film studio. 
  However, even though you may no longer have a Wanted Rating, there are 
  still guards in front of the studio at both entrances.

  These guys are not related to law enforcement but instead are Congressman 
  Shrub's personal bodyguards. Go up to the fountain north of the studio and 
  take these guys down with a Rocket Launcher to clear the way back into the 
  studio to end the mission.

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  In order to reach the searchlight, you must go on the roofs of the downtown 
  buildings to manipulate it. You will be provided a PCJ-600 to use for the 
  course so go ahead and take it. There are nineteen pink circles you must 
  hit to reach the searchlight.

  Once you start then you have until 7 AM the following morning to complete 
  your task but, because you start in the early evening, then you will have 
  more than enough time to finish the mission.

  In addition, you will finally be able to complete the last three Unique 
  Stunt Jumps - [DTN-J21], [DTN-J23] and [DTN-J24].

  To start, you have to go into The Rockstar Building then enter the 
  elevator. When you line yourself up with the first circle then back up 
  against the wall, gun the engine and go.

  In doing so you will do.....

  [DTN-J24] - Smash through the glass of The Rockstar Building to land in the 
              hollow area of the building next door.

  If you blow any of the early jumps or not get any credit for the Unique 
  Stunt Jumps then you can always go back to the elevator and try again. Your 
  cycle will take damage as you land so either go to the Little Haiti Pay 'N' 
  Spray or use the Health Code if it starts smoking.

  As you head west along the building rooftops then you will land on the 
  Hospital and set yourself up for the second of the three Unique Stunt 
  Jumps.....

  [DTN-J21] - Jump from the roof of Schuman Health Care Center to the 
              building across the street.

  About halfway through the course and near The Dirtbike Track, you will land 
  on a building that has a ladder that will go down as you land on it. So, if 
  you blow any of the later jumps, then you can go back here instead of going 
  back to the beginning of the course.

  The last jump onto the searchlight building will be the last of the Unique 
  Stunt Jumps.....

  [DTN-J23] - Jump across North Bridge (West) and land on the building that 
              has the searchlight on top.

  This should complete all of the Unique Stunt Jumps in the game. Go to the 
  pink circle by the searchlight to finish the mission and give gawkers 
  something to look at. A stairway on the south end of the building will 
  extend down so you can get back onto the street.

  If you have too much trouble jumping from building to building then you can 
  do what reader Rich Kelly suggested which is placing a helicopter after the 
  first jump (or just go over to the nearby VCN Building and get a news 
  chopper) and fly through all of the checkpoints. Then go back and do the 
  Unique Stunt Jumps afterward.

  Don't forget - the final Chopper Checkpoint mission opens up at the 
  skyscraper where you started the mission. Go ahead and do this (and the 
  other three if you waited until this one opened up so you could do them all 
  at once) before you save your game.

Tommy buys this place because he hears that there is good money in the Taxi 
business. The dispatch lady seems pretty blase' about another gangster
running things....

  "Anyhoo, I guess you better get on with the 'things are gonna change around 
   here' crap, maybe threaten one of the drivers - go steady on Ted over 
   there, he's just had his hernia fixed."

This Asset Property has three simple missions and it should not take too long 
to complete.

  Tommy decides to take a cab to pick up an important customer.....

0========0

0=======================>

  MP5 (optional), PSG1 [.308 Sniper] (optional).

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Drive up to the pink marker on Starfish Island in less than one minute to 
  pick up your customer.

  As you near the pink marker then drive past it a little and turn around. 
  You should be facing west when you get into the circle. Honk the horn when 
  you stop in the circle.

  Unfortunately, a rival cab cuts in front of you and takes your fare. 
  Drive-by and shoot up the other cab to the point the customer leaves that
  cab and enters yours. Drive the customer to the airport to complete the 
  mission.

  Then there's this method offered to me by Mihir Mehta:

     "As you know the VIP has to be dropped at the pink marker at the 
      terminal at Escobar International airport. After the cutscene in which 
      the rival cab drives off with him, IGNORE HIM, overtake him and park in
      the pink marker. Now the other cab cannot reach there. Now you can 
      easily shoot him until the VIP gets into your cab. Easy as pie."

  Well, I tried that but he still managed to drop off the passenger. However, 
  I played around a little and came up with something different.

  The other cab will go through Little Havana on the way to the Airport. Keep 
  going south along the main road and take the other way to the Airport. 
  Drive over to the EIA Main Terminal entrance but park in the grassy area in 
  the front.

  Exit the cab and switch to your Sniper Rifle. Get on the sidewalk and look 
  east down the main road leading to the airport entrance.

  When the other cab comes into view then snipe the driver. Then shoot up the 
  cab a little to get the passenger out. Get him into your cab and drive the 
  short distance to the pink marker to successfully complete the mission.

  You can get into the other cab if you want (after sniping the driver) but, 
  if you drive the passenger into the pink circle, then you will fail the 
  mission since he is not in the Kaufman Cab.

  John Nowakowski had some additional information for this mission.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  There are three cabs that need to be disposed of. There are also four ways 
  you can dispose of them:

  >>Drive by and shoot them until they are destroyed. John Nowakowski had 
    this to add about using this method:

     "It is key to remember to use the Pay N'Spray for the drive-by method. 
      Destroy one, then go repair, destroy the second, then repair. They will 
      try to stay close to you even when they are flaming, so be sure to 
      always leave a way to speed away from them once that happens."

  >>Get some distance in front of them, get out and use the Rocket Launcher.

  >>Use the Rhino and run them down.

  >>Jack the three cabs and group them together so they can be destroyed with 
    one rocket or grenade.

  Either way, destroy all three cabs to complete the mission successfully.

| Notes \
0=======================>

  Special thanks to Dexterx5 for pointing me in the right direction with his 
  suggestion.....

     "In the mission "cabmageddon", when the taxis start chasing you just 
      drive towards the water. Get out of the car, hop up on the wall and 
      wait for time to run out.  When the zebra cab came, I cautiously ran 
      toward it, pulled the driver out, shot him with the python. Mission 
      passed and I drove the zebra cab to my garage."

  But another reader, Brian P., came up with something a little better.....

     "Hey there. I was reading your FAQ for Vice city on www.gamefaqs.com, 
      and I found it really helpful. I wanted to send you a tactic that I 
      used for the Cabageddon mission (Taxi asset). I hadn't read that 
      section of your guide before doing it, so I did it my own special way. 
      Anyway, the six taxi cabs try to beat you down while your in your own 
      cabby. My tactic was this...The gate that you usually enter from is 
      barred off, so it tries to prevent you from leaving. I had already done 
      the 100 passenger taxi mission, so I just made a mad dash for the gate 
      and used the special cab jump ability to hop over it. Once I was on the 
      other side of the gate, I just waited for the timer to run out. Once it 
      did, the zebra cab appeared on the inside. It was trapped in there 
      while I was on the outside, so I just threw a few grenades over the 
      fence to destroy it. It worked like a charm for me, so let me know what 
      you think."

  Tried it and it works pretty well.....

  I had something funny happen to me when trying out the new strategy. I 
  jumped the fence with the taxi but had one of the other taxis follow me (a 
  definite glitch).

  I let him do circles and destroyed him with my MP5 [MP] in drive-by mode. 
  The explosion came close to a bunch of pedestrians and killed some but 
  pissed off one of them.

  I got out of my cab and made my way back to the gate with the ped chasing 
  me. When I got back to the gate then I was accosted by the ped.

  I switched back to the Nightstick and knocked him down. By this point the 
  time had run out and the leader cab sequence started.

  When the cutscene started then the leader cab landed on the ped and was on 
  top of him long enough to kill him! I switched back to the Rocket Launcher 
  when I regained control and destroyed the leader cab.

  After I passed the mission then I picked up the money that the dead ped 
  left behind. When I did that Tommy said "It's a nasty city isn't it?" all 
  the while looking down on the dead ped. Got a nice chuckle out of that one.

  I had another reader, Red Falcon, offer a method to completing this mission 
  although it takes a while to set up:

     "Get the taxi and go and stand in the pink marker. But DO NOT sound the 
      horn. Exit the cab and go to your mansion. If you have the Sea Sparrow, 
      get that, or, get the Maverick. Go back to the airport on your heli, 
      land AS CLOSE to the taxi you were on as possible. Then, exit the heli, 
      enter the taxi and sound the horn. When the cutscene ends, exit the cab 
      and get into the heli as fast as possible. If you are quick enough(easy 
      to do), you should enter it before the taxi guys run you down. Then, 
      let the heli gain speed, just hover on top of the taxis or go into the 
      water. If you hover on your heli over water, the taxi guys will try to 
      come behind you and as a result, fall into the water. You can try the 
      same for the Zebra Cab, but be careful. After the Zebra cab falls into 
      the water, the "Asset Completed" cutscene starts, so you lose control 
      of your heli and it might fall into the water."

  I couldn't get this to work 100% of the time but it is something different 
  to try.

  And there is this interesting bit of trivia from Jeff Sims:

     "Now the question: In the Vice City game there a mission that involves
      Tommy being attacked by a Zebra Cab. I wonder if you can tell me if you
      have any theorys about why this cab would be called the Zebra cab?

      My theory is that it is a reference to a taxi company in a book called
      American Tabloid, written by James Ellroy. In this book there is a cab
      company called Tiger Cabs, that is a front for a drug running (and 
      other dirty business) outfit in Miami.

      I have searched for Tiger Cabs on the interment and there doesn't 
      appear to be any other results, so I assume it is a fictional company."

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  The location of where you are supposed to pick up Mercedes is Viceport in 
  the large open area west of the Viceport Pay 'N' Spray. When you get there 
  then you will see a pink circle where you are prompted to go.

  Point your cab north and have only the back end of the cab in the pink 
  circle. When you honk the horn then you will find that there's no sign of 
  Mercedes.

  Instead, you have been lured into a trap by VC Cabs and six cabs show up to 
  give you the "business". When you start this phase, which lasts one minute, 
  then zip as quickly as possible to the gate.

  Get a straight shot at the gate and use the Super Taxi Jump to go over the 
  fence. Exit the cab near the truck parked near the gate, put Tommy in the 
  middle of the gate and look towards the Pay 'N' Spray. Switch to your 
  Rocket Launcher then wait for the timer to run out.

  If you haven't done the Taxi Mission and got 100 passengers to unlock the 
  Super Taxi Jump then point your cab slightly to the southeast (toward the 
  bow of the ship in the background) and have only the back end of the cab in 
  the pink circle when you get there. When chased by the other cabs then zip 
  over as quickly as possible to where the ship is.

  Round the corner, get near the crates, skid so that you are parallel to the 
  crates, exit your cab and quickly jump onto the little wall before any of 
  the other cabs can get to you. Run alongside the crates and get to the 
  other side. Then run back to the gate where you entered.

  Put Tommy in the middle of the gate and look towards the Pay 'N' Spray. 
  Switch to your Rocket Launcher then wait for the timer to run out.

  When you finish that phase then the leader of VC Cabs shows up to deal with 
  you personally in his Zebra Cab. You will even see Tommy standing there in 
  the cutscene and his standing in front of the cab keeps it from moving past 
  the gate.

  When the cutscene finishes then the leader cab will back away from you so 
  he can gain speed to run you over. Take this opportunity to target the 
  leader cab with your Rocket Launcher and quickly destroy it with two 
  rockets to successfully complete the mission.

  Then there's this method that HandsomeRockus and Rich Williams use for this 
  mission and falls under the category of "Why the hell didn't I think of 
  that?" If you have at least 90 Hidden Packages then you can use the Rhino 
  here. Park the cab close to the pink marker then leave to get another 
  vehicle. Go to Fort Baxter Air Base and get a Rhino.

  Drive the Rhino and park it near the pink marker then switch vehicles. Get 
  into the pink marker and sound the horn. After the cutscene ends then 
  switch to the Rhino.

  The other cabs will destroy themselves on the tank. The same goes for the 
  leader cab when he confronts you. Very easy.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=======================>

  $5,000.

  You'll also complete all of the Kaufman Cabs Asset Missions. A Money Icon 
  will spawn inside Kaufman Cabs that will generate maximum revenue of $5,000 
  per day plus a Zebra Cab to call your own. You may also want to do the Taxi 
  Mission if you decided to wait this long to do it.

  In addition, if you get a regular Kaufman Cab (not a Cabbie, Taxi, or Zebra 
  Cab), then you can listen to what is known as the Taxi Band. This is 
  similar to the Police Band in which you can listen to communications 
  between the Kaufman Cab operator and various Kaufman Cabs around town.

This Asset Mission requires that you go through a checkpoint race. You have 2 
and 1/2 minutes to complete the course. The first part of the race is the
most difficult because of all the turns and jumps around the piers at the
Vice City Marina.

Once you have made the last jump from the Pier area then the rest is easy.
But, if you had some difficulty in the first part, then you may still lose
the race.

After this Asset Mission is done then a Money Icon will spawn in front of the 
Boatyard that will generate maximum revenue of $2,000 per day plus unlimited
use of the boats.

However, if you grab any of the boats, then you will have to do the mission
again. You will also notice that the time to complete the course is five
seconds less than before (2:25). If you are successful again then there will
be five seconds less to complete the course than was before when you try
again (2:20).

Therefore, the more times you complete the course, the less time you will
have on subsequent attempts.

Now Tommy wants a place to go to where he and his friends can enjoy some 
exotic entertainment (i.e. strippers) and the only place in town that has it 
is the Pole Position Club.

When you purchase the place then the Mr. Vercetti Outfit will spawn at
"Collars & Cuffs" which is about a block north of the Club.

The Asset Mission related to this property isn't obvious at first. When you 
enter the place then you will find the customers doing their thing (and the
dancers dancing).

Go in the back and you will notice some rooms. In the very back on the right
side, there is a door for management only. There is a room across from that
that you can enter but there is nothing there.

Enter the room closest to the main room and you will be treated to a dance
from one of the dancers.

The Asset Mission is here in this room. You must sit through and spend a 
minimum of $300 here to complete the Asset Mission. Once this is done then a
Money Icon will spawn in front of the club that will generate maximum revenue
of $4,000 per day.

In addition, you will also unlock the "management only" room and, upon 
entering, you will be treated to a very short cutscene of Tommy enjoying
another dancer wearing nothing but a cowboy hat, pasties and a g-string. On
top of that, this dancer will also appear as a bartender at the Malibu Club.

  After being introduced to Ernest then Tommy decides to track down some

| Notes \
0=======================>

  Reader Cristian Luis Barreto came up with a way to simplify this mission by 
  suggesting that you can land on a building close to the ship and sniping 
  guards from there.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Tommy needs to find out where and when the plates are coming in. He figures 
  that the person who has the best knowledge is Kent Paul.

  After confronting Kent then Tommy is informed that the triad is operating 
  off one of the large ships near Viceport and that the bossman there can 
  tell him when the plates are coming in.

  Go back to The Mansion and get a Sea Sparrow. Fly to the ship and you will 
  see security personnel all over the ship.

  Land on the small building across the street west of the ship. Then get out 
  and use the PSG1 [.308 Sniper] to snipe the five guards you see patrolling 
  the west side of the ship.

  Then get back into the Sea Sparrow and gently fly out to the north end of 
  the ship and use the Sea Sparrow's Chaingun to kill the two guards here 
  then fly a little more east and angle yourself to get rid of the remaining 
  two guards.

  The pink circle, which is where you need to go, is on one of the higher 
  parts of the ship. You will also see a ramp near that that heads up to the 
  top platform.

  Go to the west side of the ship and land on the left side of this platform. 
  It may not look like you could land there but you can, you just have to be 
  careful.

  After you land then go down the ramp to the pink circle. When the cutscene 
  ends then switch to your Python [.357] in case there are any security to 
  deal with. Then get back into your chopper and fly back to Vice City 
  Printing Works to successfully complete the mission.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=======================>

  $2,000.

  In addition, Ken gives you a call. It seems that Sonny has been putting the 
  screws to him and is running scared.

  Tommy tells him to calm down but we all know how Ken is, right? Eventually, 
  Sonny needs to be dealt with once and for all.

  I have another method to doing this mission thanks to Glen T. Winstein and 
  HandsomeRockus.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  The drop-off is in Viceport where you got ambushed in the beginning of the 
  game. It is heavily guarded with many of the sentries carrying Shotguns 
  (which can down your Hunter with one or two solid hits) and Tec-9's.

  There are other sentries on the rooftops and crane that are armed with 
  Sniper Rifles. There are also three cars waiting for the courier.

  Fly the Hunter to the drop-off and veer out over the water when you get to 
  the ship where you did the previous mission. Where you want the chopper is 
  over the water BEHIND where the other chopper (with the courier) will land. 

  You should also see the three cars in the background. Stay far enough away 
  so you don't alert the guards and hover at about ground level. 

  The other chopper will eventually come from behind and above you. Wait for 
  it to land and when the courier exits the helicopter, blast it and the 
  three cars in the background.

  This should get rid of most, if not all, of the nearby guards. Rotate 
  slightly right to blast the crane and gently rotate left to hit the top of 
  the building in the back to get rid of the snipers.

  When you clear this sector out then gently land the Hunter near the plates, 
  exit the chopper to get them, get back in, fly back out over the water and 
  retrace your path back to the Print Works to successfully complete the 
  mission.

  When using the EP-Admiral then lay in wait in-between some trailers not far 
  from the drop-off area. As the cars pass by then they will spot you and go 
  after you.

  Focus on the courier's car. Drive-by it until it flames and wait for the 
  courier to exit. If the car blows up before the courier gets out then you 
  will fail the mission because the plates will be destroyed in the 
  explosion.

  Kill the courier or wait for the car to explode when the courier exits. Get 
  out and quickly get the plates. Get back into the EP-Admiral and speed over 
  to the Print works (park near the fence otherwise you may lose the 
  EP-Admiral) to successfully complete the mission.

  Reader Glen T. Winstein gave me another method that a friend of his, 
  HandsomeRockus, uses. Basically he lays in wait near where their secret 
  printing press is which is at the stairs just behind the red-and-beige 
  building east of Phil's Place (and where you found Package [LHI-H65]).

  He used a Rhino and blasted the two escort cars when they showed up (they 
  show up way ahead of the courier's car) and killed the courier when she 
  arrived and exited her car. Then he took the plates and drove over to the 
  Print Works to complete the mission.

  I tried it and it works pretty good. I also used the EP-Admiral and it 
  works a little better because it is faster and less clumsy. Just use the 
  Drive-By mode when the escort cars arrive (to destroy them) and run over 
  the courier when she exits the car after she arrives.

| Reward \
0=======================>

  $5,000.

  You'll also complete all of the Vice City Printing Works Asset Missions. A 
  Money Icon will spawn outside the building that will generate maximum 
  revenue of $8,000 per day.

  In addition, a coked-up Ken calls and tells you that something has happened 
  over at the Print Works and needs to be checked out. This will open up the 
  last two Main Story Missions.

  When Tommy checks out the Vice City Printing Works he then finds Ernest 
  being helped up by the other workers. He has been beat up by thugs sent out 
  by Sonny who has decided to take matters into his own hands and collect his 
  slice from Tommy.

  However, Tommy is in no mood to share, especially with Sonny. He now must 
  put a stop to the collections.....

     Ernest: "Tommy...rip that guy a new asshole for me..."
     Tommy: "I'm gonna rip him two!"

  Get the EP-Admiral and store it in one of the Sunshine Autos garages

  it about three to four car lengths from the pink circle (optional). Get a 
  Rhino and place it in one of the Sunshine Autos garages (optional).

| Notes \
0=======================>

  Monkey Man came up with a better way to this mission.....

     "For the mission "Cap the Collector" what I did is took a coar and 
      parked it over the money icon at Sunshine Autos so they couldnt collect 
      the money and then took out my rocket launcher and blasted them when 
      they got close to the car."

  I made some tweaks to the idea and used it in this revision. I used both 
  the EP-Admiral and the Rhino in trying out this idea.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  The collectors that Sonny has sent will go to each of your businesses to 
  collect his slice. The more businesses you have, the more time you have to 
  get the collectors.

  This is why I saved the Vice City Printing Works as the last Asset Property 
  to do. To make sure I had all of my businesses opened to give myself as 
  much time as possible although this mission can be done quickly.

  A pair of collectors are on a Sanchez and heading toward The Boatyard. Get 
  into your car and speed down to Sunshine Autos.

  It is probably best to use the EP-Admiral but this can work with most cars. 
  Jack a nearby car when the mission starts and quickly make your way to 
  Sunshine Autos.

  Get the EP-Admiral and position your car as to look like you are backing it 
  through the door. The Money Icon should be in the back seat.

  However, you should angle the car toward the left a little bit. This way, 
  when you look right in drive-by mode, you should be aiming at the driveway 
  entrance leading into the facility.

  When the first set of collectors make their way to the auto lot then they 
  will park at the driveway entrance and run toward the icon. Just go into 
  drive-by mode and kill them as they approach the car.

  After that then a second set of collectors will head down the main road 
  from Downtown to continue the collecting started by the first group. Just 
  stay where you are at regardless of whether the collectors go to your other 
  assets.

  They still need to come to Sunshine Autos so you can just wait and ambush 
  them. After killing the second set of collectors then a third set will be 
  generated. Wait for them also. When you kill them then the mission will be 
  successfully completed.

  When using the Rhino then just park it over the icon and parallel to the 
  open door. Then use the Tank Gun on the collectors as they approach.

  When using the Hunter then you may be able to kill the first group before 
  they tax The Boatyard. Zip up the road and rocket the remaining groups as 
  they appear. Another option is to just land the Hunter near the Boatyard 
  and lay in wait for the next two groups using the PSG1 [.308 Sniper] to 
  take them down from a distance.

| Reward \
0=======================>

  $30,000.

  At this point, the only remaining Main Story Mission left is "Keep Your 
  Friends Close....." (Tommy Vercetti). But that will be the very last 
  mission to do in this guide.

  There is still quite a bit of work to do here and this segues into the next 
  section.....

Now is the time to clean up some loose ends. Along the way, I've opened up a 
lot of other Side Story Missions that up until now have been put on hold.

There are a total of sixteen missions spread out amongst five different
persons and groups. Most of these missions are easy and they can be done
quickly.

This is the order in which they are presented in this guide:

  >>Avery Carrington
    ****************
  >>Love Fist
    *********
  >>Big Mitch Baker
    ***************
  >>Umberto Robina
    **************
  >>Auntie Poulet
    *************

They can be done in any order but it is suggested that the gang missions 
(Robina and Poulet) be done last. This is because of the hostility the 
Haitians will have against you when you enter their neighborhood after you
complete the gang missions.

Avery Carrington is the main real estate developer in Vice City. He seems
like a nice enough gentleman but when it comes to acquiring property he can
be quite ruthless. You have already done some work for him ("Riot" (Ken
Rosenberg)) so you have some idea of what to expect.

He has three missions total and they are not too difficult. He is represented 
by the "A" icon at Fairground Point in Vice Point.

  Avery wants you to take down some guy at Leaf Links Golf Club so he can 
  get some additional property. He gives you a membership at the course and 
  tells you to go to Jocksport to get appropriate clothing.....

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  This mission lends itself to some creative thinking. There are two ways 
  you can do this mission.

  The first way involves the use of a Sea Sparrow. First, go to Jocksport 
  to get your golf outfit. But, instead of going straight to Leaf Links Golf 
  Club, head to The Mansion and get a Sea Sparrow.

  Fly back to the Golf Club and park the Sea Sparrow in front of the gate and 
  get out. Get into the pink circle (to generate your target) and get back 
  into the chopper.

  Fly over the Golf Club and creep along the trees until you sight your 
  target. Then let him have it with the Sea Sparrow's Chaingun. Mission 
  completed.

  The second method for doing this mission was suggested to me by Abhisheik 
  Dahiya:

     "In the four iron missoin for Avery carrington there is another way to
      get your weapons to the golf course Use the boat parked to the right of
      the course entrance and drive the boat to the islands edge and jump 
      onto the island. Easy."

  There's a way to make this even better. Instead of going onto the Golf 
  Club, drive the Predator over near the driving range and park a short 
  distance from it.

  Then just use the Rocket Launcher or Sniper Rifle from the boat to kill 
  your target and successfully complete the mission.

  In addition, the Golf Outfit icon will spawn outside of Leaf Links Golf

| Notes \
0=======================>

  I had a reader, Cic the Poet, bring up a good point concerning this 
  mission.....

     "on the mission "Demolition Man" you give the advice: "When you finally
      grab the first bomb, start with the top target and then work your way
      down to the ground floor."

     "I think this is a bad idea. No matter in what order you do the other
      bombs, it would be best to save the top target for last. Simply
      because you will not have to fly back from the last target you bomb,
      and saving the top target for last means you save the maximum time out
      of this fact.

      For example, let's say you need 10 seconds to fly from the lowest
      target back to the top-fun van, and you need 30 seconds from the top
      target. Then you gain 20 seconds of time if you do the top target as
      last instead of the bottom one."

  So I made a slight change to this mission.....

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  The method to damaging this building is a bit unusual in that you have to 
  use an RC helicopter (controlled from a Top Fun Van) to drop bombs at 
  certain points within the building (four of them to be exact). You have a 
  seven minute time limit that begins when you pick up the first bomb.

  With that in mind, you can go ahead and scope things out before doing your 
  dirty work.

  As you go around inside the building to find where are supposed to drop the 
  bombs, you will see that the place is guarded by workers and security 
  people. They see your chopper and will try to attack it with hammers and 
  guns.

  However, you can easily deal with them by slicing them up (and killing 
  them) with your copter blades.

  If you take the time to find where your targets are and kill all of the 
  guards in the building then this will make the mission much easier. When 
  you finally grab the first bomb then start with the bottom target and work 
  your way up to the top floor.

  When you have dropped the last bomb then your work is done and the mission 
  is successfully completed.

  Avery wants you to start a gang war between the Cubans and the Haitians so 
  that land prices will drop and he can acquire more property (cheap). He 
  also introduces you to his protege', Donald Love (from "Grand Theft Auto 
  III" and "Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories") who happens to be taking 
  notes.....

     "Now, nothing brings down real estate prices quicker than a good 
      old-fashioned gang war 'cept maybe a disaster, like a biblical plague 
      or something, but, that may be going too far in this case. You getting 
      this down, you four-eyed prick?"

  Gun Turret (Rhino) (optional), MP5 [MP] (optional), Sniper Rifle 
  (optional).

0==========0

0=======================>

  If you don't have a Rhino then get one from Fort Baxter Air Base and save 
  it at the Hyman Condo garage (optional). Acquire the Everything-Proof 
  Admiral at the end of "Guardian Angels" (Colonel Juan Garcia Cortez) and 
  have it saved at one of your garages (optional).

0======0
| Notes \
0=======================>

  Cic the Poet came up with another good method to doing this mission.....

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Get a car and go west into Little Havana to the Little Havana Streetwear 
  store that will let you get into the appropriate outfit. Get back into your 
  car and go get the Rhino you have stored in the Hyman Condo garage.

  Approach the Funeral Parlor from either the north or from the south and 
  blast (and run over) everything in sight. In the chaos you will kill your 
  intended target.

  When you have done that then hightail it out of Little Haiti. After you get 
  out of there then your mission is successfully completed.

  Store your Rhino back at the Hyman Condo, or your Mansion garage, if you 
  wish to use it later for something else.

  When using the EP-Admiral then run over everybody in front of you and 
  drive-by your target. If the target gets in his vehicle, which is a hearse, 
  then chase him.

  Don't worry about the flaming coffins he dumps from the back of the hearse, 
  he can't hurt you because of the EP-Admiral. Drive-by his hearse to destroy 
  it and your target.

  You will more than likely be outside of Little Haiti if you have to chase 
  him so you will end the mission successfully when you blow up the hearse.

  Then there is the method suggested to me by Cic the Poet:

     "Get to the scene from the _west_. There is a point where a wall blocks 
      your way to the scene. Park your car there, get on top of the car so 
      you can see the gang leader. (With a cheetah, for example, you need to 
      get on the roof of the car, the hood is not high enough.) Use your 
      sniper rifle to shoot him. Then, enter your car and leave. You should 
      be out of Little Haiti before anyone bothers you."

  Actually what he means is approach the scene from the EAST on the opposite 
  side of the wall behind The Well Stacked Pizza Co. (Little Haiti). Once you 
  peek over the wall then you will be spotted by the Haitians (that's what 
  you want).

  Shoot the guy closest to you then kill the gang leader. Then get into your 
  car and leave. Simple.

  If you're into car collecting then this is a very good way to get the 
  Hearse. Kill most of the Haitians (which will eventually get you a 2-Star 
  Wanted Rating). Switch to your Uzi or Python (which will allow you to run), 
  jump the wall then get into the Hearse. Then drive out of Little Haiti to 
  complete the mission and acquire the Hearse.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=======================>

  $2,500.

  You'll also complete all of Avery Carrington's missions. You will also get 
  a phone call from the Cuban gang leader, Umberto Robina.

  But I will save his stuff for later in the guide. In addition, the Havana 
  Outfit will spawn at the Little Havana Streetwear in Little Havana.

  Drive to the pink marker but, before you sound the horn, position your car 
  so that you are facing the street with the pink marker in front of the car. 
  Park in the circle and sound the horn. The dealer will come out and do some 
  business and then.....rip you off and speed off on a motorcycle.

  Chase after him, ram him off his bike and run him over (or drive-by him). 
  Get out and get the drugs.

  After doing that then Kent calls and tells you that the band could do with 
  a little company. Tommy has just the person - Mercedes. You now have to go 
  get Mercedes at her place which is just south of the Links View Heights.

  Once you pick her up then you have ninety seconds to get her back to the 
  studio. The fastest way is to go straight north and over the North Bridge 
  into Downtown (the road also ends at the studio).

  When you get back to the studio then the mission is successfully 
  completed.

  In addition, Kent calls and tells you that they are going to need some 
  security for the concert and recommends the local biker gang led by one 
  Mitch Baker. This will open up Mitch's set of missions which I will do 
  first before finishing up with Love Fist.

Mitch Baker leads a ragtag group of bikers who call The Greasy Chopper
"home". He is loyal to his gang and is intolerant of outsiders.

Naturally, he doesn't take too kindly to Tommy but Tommy doesn't back down
offering to join the gang if that is what it will take to secure his
services.

Baker's missions are represented by a spade in the south part of Downtown and
consists of three missions.

  to be a either an Angel or Freeway.....

| Notes \
0=======================>

  The idea for knocking off a rider at the beginning of the race came from 
  the following source: Official U.S. Playstation Magazine (Issue #66 (March 
  2003) - Page 123) by Brian Steinlage (bonniejs[gnat]juno[snot]com)).

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  The race starts at the front of the Greasy Chopper and you have to ride 
  against three other riders. You have to use either an Angel or Freeway. And 
  you can't use weapons either - you have to play it straight.

  You can grab one the bikes in front of the Greasy Chopper and get in the 
  pink circle to start the race.

  Or you can go in front of one of the other riders (not too close though) 
  and press Enter Vehicle to knock the rider off and grab the bike (the race 
  will automatically start) and thus you only have to deal with two bikers 
  instead of three.

  Then there's this nice suggestion given to me by Jamie Allen. Grab a 
  Firetruck from the nearby Fire Station and drive to the other riders.

  What you want to do is place the Firetruck in front of the right two bikers 
  and perpendicular to the street leaving one rider unblocked. Go the 
  unblocked rider and jack the bike.

  This will start the race but the other riders will smack the Firetruck and 
  it will take them time to get around it. Of course, you can zip right past 
  the Firetruck and gain a huge lead over the other two riders.

  There's also another benefit to stealing one of your opponent's bikes. It 
  seems that the Angels that your computer opponents ride have much better 
  handling than the regular Angels parked in front of the Greasy Chopper.

  You can turn the corners much tighter than on a regular Angel (which make 
  you feel like you are on ice). This means that you can also go much faster 
  than you could on an regular Angel.

  Your other opponents have the same bikes but their advantage is negated by 
  the fact that they are lousy riders and will wipe out constantly in the 
  corners (and there a lot of them on the course). You first opportunity to 
  pass them will come where the sharp 90 degree right turn is at the Hyman 
  Condo - they will be picking themselves up as you pass them.

  Thanks to the improved handling of this particular motorcycle, which I call 
  the "Steel Angel", you can easily win the race with a time as little as 
  1:19.

  If you want, after the race, you can save the Steel Angel in one of your 
  garages. However, as A.M. van de Water pointed out, it will lose its 
  special properties when saved thus becoming a regular Angel again.

  Tommy's prison stay, to his advantage and tells to him "mess with the man". 
  Tommy decides to take him up on the challenge.....

  Special thanks to J. Straughan for the following suggestion on how to do 
  this mission better.....

     "Hello I just read your GTA vice city guide and it was a very good one 
      but I have a suggstion to make In the Mitch Baker mission with the 
      chaos meter thingamajig you can just keep firing at a car till it blows 
      up, then just keep shooting the carcass of the car and voila, I'm sure 
      you've recieved several e-mails about this and I'm sorry if its 
      annoying good day."

  Works pretty good in the PS2 versions but a reader named Benjamin Kirk 
  wrote telling me that it doesn't work in the PC version.....

     "I play the PC version of GTA: Vice City and wanted to send along a 
      quick comment regarding this mission. First of all, continuing to shoot 
      a car after it blows up DOES NOT WORK in the PC version. I found the 
      fastest way to beat the mission is to get a 3 star wanted level before 
      starting, then running back to your shack and shooting at the 
      helicopter with one of your guns. Your chaosometer will go up, but the 
      helicopter won't blow up. Then when you're done, run back to your 
      shack, save, then load your saved game and you won't be wanted anymore. 
      You don't necessarily have to get the wanted level ahead of time if you 
      don't want. It worked for me."

  I tried it out in the PS2 version but did not work for me. In addition the 
  shooting-a-car strategy does not work in the Xbox version either. So I've 
  resurrected an earlier strategy from one of my first versions.

  Another reader, Haenlomal, made a similar suggestion using only the 
  Mini-Gun.....

     "The only thing you really need for this mission is a Minigun.  Make
      sure you have enough ammo for it, since it spits lead like no tomorrow.  
      If you had picked up enough hidden packages, this should not be a 
      problem.  I would have around 2000 rounds, though you can get by on 
      even 200 or 300 rounds.

      Once you have enough ammo for your minigun then you have two choices.

      a) Start the mission with no wanted level

      b) Start the mission with a wanted level of 3

      Either way, you want to build up to a wanted level of 3 to get the 
      Police helicopters to come to you.  And once they come, it's simple:  
      Aim your minigun at the 'Copter, and fire away.  The mission will be 
      over in 1-2 seconds! (5 seconds tops if you pick option b) since you 
      haven't filled up the Chaos Meter by building up to a level 3 wanted 
      rating.)  For some protection, you might want to sprint over to rooftop 
      where the Skumhole Shack is located.  The Copters still follow you 
      there.  This mission is a piece of cake."

  I still wasn't able to hit the Police Chopper reliably but Haenlomal 
  inspired me to use the Mini-Gun instead of the MP5 on the 
  shooting-the-car-carcass method and found you can fill up the Chaos Meter 
  in a matter of seconds.

  Glen T. Winstein also gave me another tip which I found works reliably on 
  all versions.

  Another reader, Tom Jackson, gave me another idea that made me go "Why 
  didn't I think of that?"

  And Tow Wang came up with another "Why didn't I think of that?" idea.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  What Mitch wants you to do is create as much chaos as possible within two 
  minutes. There is a Chaos Meter that must be maxed out to successfully 
  complete the mission. You must destroy and kill as much as possible to max 
  it out:

  >>PS2 Version
    ***********
      There is a shortcut to completing this mission (as stated by Mr. 
      Straughan). You can destroy a car and keep shooting at its remains to 
      jack up your Chaos Meter. The reason I suggest using a van or a 
      Linerunner is because they are large vehicles and they are easier to 
      shoot up from a distance (so you don't hurt yourself when you blow it 
      up).

    By parking it behind the building and away from the street then you can 
    shoot up the vehicle using either the MP5 or Mini-Gun to jack up your 
    Chaos Meter without getting any wanted ratings.

  >>Xbox and PC Versions
    ********************
      After the cutscene ends then grab one of the cycles outside the Greasy 
      Chopper and head toward the Pay 'N' Spray in Little Haiti. Shoot any 
      pedestrian and car in front of you.

      Don't go too fast though. It will allow you to maintain better control 
      and aim. There will be plenty of targets (especially the Cops who will 
      try to cut you off and get in front of you) to shoot at between the 
      Greasy Chopper and the Pay 'N' Spray and you can jack up your Chaos 
      Meter very quickly.

  >>All Versions
    ************
      This idea came from Glen T. Winstein. First you will need to get a Cop 
      Uniform and have collected all 100 Hidden Packages to unlock the 
      Hunter. Once you are in the Hunter then fly to the Greasy Chopper. Land 
      it and go inside to start the mission.

      When you start the mission then get back into your Hunter and fly up. 
      Then head out over the water near the Golf Club and start firing 
      Rockets into the air.

      The Chaos Meter will then start to fill up. You don't even have to hit 
      anything, just fire them into thin air. You can finish this mission 
      quickly this way.

  Another method, as suggested to me by Tom Jackson, is, if you have the 
  EP-Admiral, then use it in the shoot-the-car method instead of a Linerunner 
  or van. You can still get the Chaos Meter full but you won't blow it up so 
  this will work on all versions including the Xbox and PC versions.

  Then Tow Wang suggested the use of the Rhino for this mission. It seems 
  that you can only kill Cops and destroy Police vehicles to max out the 
  Chaos Meter.

  But running over people and destroying cars regardless will quickly bring 
  Police attention so this isn't much of a problem. However, if you 
  successfully complete the mission this way, then you will find that the 
  Wanted Ratings don't go away so that is something to keep in mind.

  When you have maxed out your Chaos Meter, regardless of method, then the 
  mission is successfully completed. If you used the motorcycle method then 
  your Wanted Rating remains which is why you head to the Pay 'N' Spray (so 
  you can get rid of it).

| Notes \
0=======================>

  One time I used an Angel to make the jump into the compound. I hit a couple 
  of people on the way and got a 1-Star Wanted Rating.

  For some reason, I didn't quite have the speed to make the jump and I was 
  woefully short, hitting the building and getting knocked off the bike in 
  mid-air. And I got busted by a Cop the very moment I hit the ground. 
  Sad.....

  I also came up with a new way of doing this mission plus a new exit 
  strategy by Adam Lilley.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Get a PCJ-600 from Howlin' Pete's (across the street from The Greasy 
  Chopper). There is no direct gate into the compound so you will have to 
  jump onto a roof to get in. The ramp is the long set of stairs across the 
  street from the Downtown Ammu-Nation.

  Once on the roof then get off the bike and kill the two goons nearby. There 
  are a total of thirty goons in the compound.

  You have already killed the first two here on the roof. Eventually you will 
  be spotted and the rest will attack.

  They will come out of a doorway right next to the bike. Switch to your MP5 
  [MP] or Python [.357] and work your way to the corner near the top of the 
  bottom-most set of stairs. Stand at the edge of the corner and this will 
  allow you to quickly kill the gang members as they approach.

  After awhile then you will hear gunfire from an M4. The last two goons have 
  M4's and, when they show themselves (and you kill them), then you will have 
  cleared the compound of goons and you can get to the bike without any 
  additional interference.

  When you get to Mitch's bike then get on it and go back the way you came. 
  As noted earlier, Adam Lilley came up with a different exit path than the 
  one I used before.

  Go back up to the roof. You will notice four small ventilation "humps" on 
  the east side of the roof.

  What needs to be done is to use these "humps" as mini-ramps to jump over 
  the edge and onto either the building next door or onto the road. Go back 
  west to the other side of the roof so you can get enough speed to jump over 
  the retaining ledge when you hit the "hump" closest to the street.

  When you finally get back to the street then head toward the bridge leading 
  to Prawn Island. When you get near the bridge then break right to get on 
  the sidewalk and go in the gap between the wall and bridge. Then turn 
  right, go down the stairs and straight to the Greasy Chopper.

  Even though you cleared the compound of goons, the gang will still chase 
  you with their Gang Burritos. However, by going this particular route, then 
  they can't catch you.

  When you get back to the Greasy Chopper then you will complete your task 
  and win your patch.

| Notes \
0=======================>

  I managed to get the game to freeze during this mission. After I parked the 
  limo then I ran up the street and got a Freeway and went back to Rock City.

  I tried to put the bike on top of the psycho to keep him down just to see 
  what happens. What happened instead was that the psycho got up and was 
  standing on top of the bike!

  I got back on the bike and slowly drove away with the psycho still on top. 
  I parked the bike near the Hyman Condo and went back to the limo.

  When the cutscene started you see the two girls (that precede the psycho) 
  make their way into the store. But, because the psycho isn't there, then 
  the security guard doesn't get shot and the scene will "freeze" - you can't 
  go any further and you can't get out of it. Weird.....

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Get into the limo and make your way to the signing. But stop just short of 
  the pink marker and get out. Run all the way back to the Hyman Condo and 
  get the Coach.

  Make your way back to the record store and angle the bus toward the alley 
  to the left of the store. Enter the alleyway and line the bus up against 
  the right wall so you are scraping the right side of the bus with it.

  Once the bus is straight then back it out of the alley and hold down 
  Drive-By Mode (Left) to see the right side of the Coach.

  Look at the bottom of the bus. In-between the luggage doors is a seam 
  (which is the middle of the Coach). Line the seam with the yellow line of 
  the road and stop.

  Exit the bus, ready your Python [.357], get back into the limo and creep 
  into the pink circle.

  When the cutscene starts then the psycho reveals himself. Near the end then 
  he will get into his car.

  Notice where the bus is - it is right on his front bumper. When you get 
  control again then get out.

  You will notice that the psycho is just spinning his wheels. After a couple 
  of seconds (too fast to use a Sniper Rifle) then the frustrated psycho will 
  exit his car. Shoot him when he does to successfully complete the mission.

  If, by some chance, he decides to back up instead then quickly run up and 
  jack his car. Hold Drive-By Mode (Left) when you get in and shoot him when 
  he gets up off the ground.

  You might have considered, now that you know what he looks like, to just go 
  up to the crowd on foot and whack him before he does any damage. 
  Unfortunately, the game still considers him a regular fan since you have 
  not drawn him out at that point and you will fail the mission if you kill 
  him beforehand. So much for that potential shortcut.

  The psycho has left a little surprise in the limo - a bomb that will 
  explode if you stop the vehicle. Now you will have to drive around while 
  you and the band try to find a way out of this.

  This mission has a lot of room for creative solutions - there really isn't 
  a wrong way to do this. But perhaps the most effective way is the route 
  outlined here.

  Go south along the main road (Bayshore Avenue) and into Viceport. Hang a 
  left when the road ends and follow it back out and you will be going back 
  north along the main road.

  You don't have to hold Accelerate down all the time. Release it in 
  intervals to keep a good solid speed.

  This will also help you keep better control of the limo so you can weave 
  through the traffic better. After about 2 and 3/4 minutes then the band 
  will finally defuse the bomb.

  Then drive back up to the venue to successfully complete the mission.

He hangs out with his father in the Robina Cafe and considers having big

  Some interesting findings concerning some of the Haitian weapons. They seem 
  to be able to destroy any kind of vehicle with ease including the Rhino and 
  the EP-Admiral.

  In front of the gate is a road that runs along the front of it. If you go 
  along this road and place a vehicle in front of the Haitians so they can't 
  shoot the Cubans then that vehicle will be destroyed very quickly.

  For example, I got a Rhino and drove in front of the gate, without touching 
  anything, to protect the Cubans while I took care of the Haitians. To my 
  amazement, the Rhino started flaming in about a few shots from the Haitian 
  weapons and thus they destroyed the Rhino.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  When everybody is in the car then go toward the pink blip on the radar. 
  Once there then you will see a long alleyway leading into an industrial 
  building.

  At the gate, there is a car and a bunch of Haitians behind it. There is 
  also an alleyway that runs along the front wall of the complex. After the 
  cutscene ends then you are prompted to get rid of the Haitians.

  Switch to your PSG1 [.308 Sniper] and take down the Haitians from your 
  position. Shoot up the car to destroy it for this will take out most of the 
  Haitians. Kill any survivors to advance the mission along.

  When the Cubans charge then three of them are cut down by a sniper who is 
  on the roof of the main building. Take him down with your PSG1 [.308 
  Sniper] then switch to your Spaz Shotgun [S.P.A.S. 12] and enter the 
  complex.

  When you get to the van then kill as many Haitians as possible before 
  stealing the van. Once in the van then run over any Haitians that get in 
  your way.

  Keep in mind that in the process of killing all those Haitians you jacked 
  up your Wanted Rating (2-Star) so now you will have to deal with the Cops 
  as you exit the complex. Make your way to the Little Haiti Pay 'N' Spray to 
  get rid of the rating and then go to the Cafe to successfully complete the 
  mission.

  Or, you can just go straight to the Cafe instead of going to a Pay 'N' 
  Spray if you're feeling adventurous.

  Drive down to the pink blip to meet Rico who will drive you to the meet at 
  Starfish Island. Switch to your Spaz Shotgun [S.P.A.S. 12] before 
  activating the pink circle.

  The meet is taking place on one of the docks and there are also two boats 
  there. There are three Haitians on each boat and several people on the dock 
  itself.

  Once you are at the meet then hold Target and tap Next Weapon until you are 
  targeting the Haitian on the far right (on the right boat).

  Then press and HOLD down the Attack button to start shooting and quickly 
  tap Previous Weapon to do a quick sweep of all of your targets from right 
  to left. If you do this right, and quickly enough, then you should be able 
  to get through this first section without so much as a scratch.

  After that then you will be on land. Switch to your Rocket Launcher and 
  shoot at various places around the house to kill all of the other gang 
  members.

  Grab one of the briefcases near the boats then go near the house to get the 
  others. After that is done then the Haitians will destroy Rico and his boat 
  so you are on your own.

  At this point you will have a 4-Star Wanted Rating. Go along the left side 
  of the house and you will see a Landstalker on the parking pad. Take it and 
  drive it back (avoiding as much of the Police pursuit as possible) to the 
  Cafe to successfully complete the mission.

Auntie Poulet is the leader of the Haitian gang and is at war with the
Cubans. Tommy is confused at first of why he's there but Auntie Poulet leaves
him feeling a little, shall we say, spellbound. He is now compelled to help
her in her fight against the Cubans.

She has three relatively simple missions and is represented by the voodoo
doll icon in Little Haiti.

  The Cubans have told the Cops where Auntie Poulet hides her special powders 
  who think that they are illegal drugs. She tells Tommy they are not and 
  compels him to get the powders before the Cops do.....

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  The powders are located in three locations and, after you grab the first 
  one, then you have about a minute to grab the other two.

  Drive a car to the first location which is near the City Scrap entrance. 
  Park the car close to the building pointing east right by the stash.

  Exit the car, go up the ramp and across the roof to get it. When you grab 
  the case then you will be accosted by a SWAT member.

  Jump off the roof and onto or near your parked car. Get back in your car 
  and get the second stash. You will have at least a 2-Star Wanted Rating so 
  the Cops will be on your tail.

  The second stash is located in the open near a corner not far from the 
  first one. When you grab that then you will get a 4-Star Wanted Rating and 
  the Cops will be all over you.

  Head back toward Auntie Poulet's and in the process go through an alley 
  that has a Police Bribe that will lower your rating. Once you do that then 
  angle right and head to the third package which is just north of Jump 
  [LHI-J25].

  After you grab that then your Wanted Rating now goes up to 5-Star and the 
  FBI will join in chasing you down. The best thing to do is just run on 
  foot, off the ramp and into the Police Bribe, then back to Auntie Poulet's 
  to successfully complete the mission.

  Auntie Poulet wants you to take down some Cubans and their boats using RC 
  planes.....

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Go and find the Top Fun Van which is by the seawall not far from Auntie 
  Poulet's shack.

  You have three planes to do your work with which is to destroy the Cubans 
  and their boats, docked on Starfish Island, by bombing them with RC Barons. 
  If you had problems doing the RC Baron race then this is not going to be 
  easy.

  However, you can make things a whole lot better on yourself if you do the 
  following:

  When you get the plane in the air then make your way to the dock area where 
  the Cubans are. Once you're over the backyard of the house where the dock 
  is then land your plane.

  From this point you control the plane like you would a car. And you can 
  also run over people with the plane like you can with a car. If you hit 
  somebody hard enough or run over them enough times then you can kill people 
  this way.

  Start by running over the Cuban standing by the car. The Cubans won't do 
  anything unless you drop a bomb so they're sitting ducks while you're on 
  the ground.

  After you run over the first Cuban then go over and run over the three 
  Cubans standing near the top of the stairs. Then go down the stairs and go 
  after the one closest to the boats.

  Stop quickly once you hit him regardless of whether you killed him or not 
  otherwise you put the plane in the water. Back up and hit him again if you 
  didn't kill him.

  Then go after the Cuban hidden by the crane. Because of the small space, it 
  will take four hits to kill him (back up after hitting him to make another 
  run at him). Then go after the other three Cubans standing and sitting 
  nearby to clear them out.

  After that then all that's left are the boats themselves. Put the plane in 
  the middle boat and drop a bomb to destroy the boat, the boat to the right 
  and your plane. This leaves the left boat and you can use one of your 
  remaining two planes to either bomb it from the air or land it in the boat 
  and self-destruct.

  When all three boats are destroyed then the mission is successfully 
  completed.

| Overview \
0=======================>

  Auntie Poulet's final task for you involves providing some unfair 
  assistance for the Haitians involved in a street fight with the Cubans. The 
  assistance comes in the form of you taking down the Cubans with a Sniper 
  Rifle.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  Sniper Rifle.

0==========0
| Prep Work \
0=======================>

  Buy a Sniper Rifle from the Ammu-Nation in North Point Mall and get a least 
  60 rounds.

0=======================>

  None.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  During the cutscene, Tommy grabs the Sniper Rifle off the table. If you had 
  the PSG1 [.308 Sniper] then it will be replaced by the Sniper Rifle. By 
  getting a Sniper Rifle beforehand then Tommy will merely add to the ammo he 
  already has.

  Run to the stairs leading to the rooftop where the pink circle is and grab 
  the Adrenaline Pill on the way up to your vantage point. Then zoom in and 
  take down all of the Cubans and their reinforcements as they appear.

  You should have more than enough ammo to do the deed. The Fast Load 
  Feature, if you managed to earn it from the "Rifle Range" side-mission, 
  will allow you to kill the Cubans quickly. After the Haitians kill the last 
  Cuban then the mission will end successfully.

  If you want to challenge yourself a bit then don't pick up the Pill.

| Reward \
0=======================>

  $5,000.

  At this point I have completed all of Auntie Poulet's missions. This also 
  means that I can finally finish up with Robina's tasks which takes me

  Umberto's final task for you is to go and blow up the Haitian drug 
  processing plant. You need to get a Haitian vehicle to get inside so you 
  can plant bombs to destroy the building.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  Python [.357].

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  You will need to get a Voodoo to make your entrance. The good part is that 
  there is always one parked by Auntie Poulet's house.

  Get in a car and drive yourself and Pepe over to Auntie Poulet's to get the 
  Voodoo (Pepe will make some interesting comments along the way). When you 
  get the Voodoo then make your way over to the other members of your team 
  parked not far from Kaufman Cabs.

  From there, simply follow your team into the Haitian complex.

  Once you get out of your car and into the building then kill every Haitian 
  with your Python before planting any bombs. There are three places to place 
  your devices:

    >>[#1] - on the second floor.
    >>[#2] - right beneath [#1].
    >>[#3] - by the door.

  When you plant the first one then you have about forty seconds to plant the 
  other two bombs before they detonate. Start with [#1] and make your way to 
  [#2] and [#3].

  After planting the last device then run to the gate entrance and hang a 
  right to go up some stairs to a nearby rooftop to escape. After that then 
  you will then be treated to some fireworks as the factory goes up.

  This will successfully complete the mission.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=======================>

  $10,000.

  This also completes all of Umberto Robina's missions.

  In addition, the Haitians will then be hostile to you so, if go through 
  Little Haiti, then they will try to yank you from your car and kill you. 
  This is why I saved this mission until almost the very end.

  Plus, the Mini-Gun Weapon Icon will now appear on top of the ruined drug 
  processing plant.

  At this point in the guide I am at 99% completion and ready to do the 
  final Main Story Mission of the game.....

| Overview \
0=======================>

  Sonny Forelli decides to visit Tommy after Tommy whacked his collectors. 
  Tommy's plan is to give $3 million in fake money to satisfy Sonny. 
  Unfortunately, for Tommy, Lance reveals himself as a traitor telling Sonny 
  where the real cash is. And so the final confrontation begins.....

     "I just wanted to piss you off before I kill you."

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  Rocket Launcher (100+ rounds), Python [.357], Spaz Shotgun [S.P.A.S. 12] 
  (100+ rounds).

| Notes \
0=======================>

  One reader, Rich Williams, informed me of that some of the rewards for 
  completing this mission occur at the end of the Main Story Missions not at 
  100% Completion so I rearranged some things at the end of this chapter.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  After the mission begins then you will be behind your desk ready to guard 
  your safe. Quickly run out of your office and angle left.

  Go up the mini-set of stairs and position yourself underneath the wall lamp 
  at the top. Switch to your Rocket Launcher and aim at the stained glass 
  window at the top of the office door.

  As the goons come up then launch a rocket at the window and the explosion 
  will kill them before they can enter the office. Keep shooting the window 
  with rockets as additional goons come up.

  After awhile then you will be prompted to return to your office to protect 
  your safe. When you get to the front of your office then you will start the 
  cutscene with Lance.

  After the cutscene ends then aim your Rocket Launcher at the entrance of 
  the hallway near where Lance is standing. Quickly rip off several rockets 
  at the hallway and the concussive blasts will kill Lance without you even 
  having to chase him!

  Swing your launcher left toward the two goons near the upper window across 
  the room from you and send a rocket to take them down.

  However, you won't be able to trigger the cutscene with Sonny until you 
  leave the main room. The game expects you to chase Lance up to the roof and 
  the ability to trigger the cutscene is tied to you leaving the main room.

  So switch to your Python [.357] and run up to the hallway leading to the 
  staircase.

  If, by some chance, Lance survived the first volley of rockets, then he 
  will be waiting at the other end of the hallway. Switch back to your Rocket 
  Launcher and send several rockets down the hallway to finish him off.

  Go down the stairs to the basement and to the small room that has Health, 
  Body Armor, an M4 and a Shotgun where you can replenish yourself (killing 
  any goons that get in your way of course). Then go back up to your office 
  but switch to your Spaz Shotgun [S.P.A.S. 12] before reaching the door.

  When you get back to your office then you will confront Sonny who pretty 
  much confirms that you were set up by him fifteen years ago.....

     "I OWN you, Tommy! Those fifteen years were mine to spend."

  He now considers you expendable so he sends his guys out to kill you.

  After the cutscene ends then move forward a couple of steps to the edge of 
  the top step, quickly target and shoot one of Sonny's bodyguards. After 
  that then quickly target and shoot the other bodyguard.

  Then quickly target Sonny and HOLD down the Attack button to pump as much 
  lead into Sonny as fast as you possibly can. You will take some damage but 
  if you are quick enough this part should be over in a matter of seconds. 
  After a few rounds then Sonny will go down in a bloody heap.

  Congratulations! You have now succeeded in getting rid of Sonny once and 
  for all. You will then be treated to the ending cutscene and the 
  credits.....

    "Ain't it just beautiful?"

  After that then you will be placed at the top of the stairs in front of 
  your mansion. And what do you get for your work?.....

0=======0
| Reward \
0=======================>

  $30,000.

  And for completing the Main Story Missions you will get the following:

  >>The Hunter will now start spawning at the Helipad at south Ocean Beach. 
    It may not appear the first time you try to find it so go around one of 
    the blocks and return to the helipad. (source: GameWinners.com GTA:Vice 
    City Forum).

    In addition, according to Dan Leonard (who is playing the Xbox version), 
    the Hunter may also appear at Fort Baxter Air Base after this mission 
    regardless of whether or not you obtained all 100 Hidden Packages first.

  >>As you roam the city then you will get phone calls from some of the other 
    characters starting with Colonel Cortez. These phone calls provide some 
    additional humor to liven up the game.

  And, if you've done EVERYTHING prior to doing this mission, then you should 
  also have the elusive.....

And what do you earn for 100% Completion in "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City"?:

  >>Maximum health of 200.

  >>Maximum armor of 200.

  >>Infinite ammo for ALL weapons.

  >>Double damage rating for all cars you drive. This means that, while you 
    are behind the wheel of a car, then it will take twice as much damage 
    before being destroyed. Any other car on the road has normal damage.

  >>The Frankie Outfit will now spawn in your office. It is the same as your
    Casual Outfit except the T-shirt will have some writing on it: "I 
    completed Vice City and all I got was this lousy T-shirt."

  >>You can get bodyguards after 100% Completion. In the living room on the
    first floor of The Mansion you will see three of your men sitting on the
    furniture with pink circles in front of them.

    If you activate the pink circles then you will lose a little money and 
    these guys will follow you around until they get killed. Thanks to Robert 
    Buchanan for that piece of information. Also thanks to Michael Jankowski 
    for pointing out that you can also get them in the PS2 version.
