Watch the cutscene, where you'll get the drugs, then have your boat
blown out of the water. After the cutscene, you'll be in the water.
Head for the shore, while tapping the X button as fast as you can.
This will let you swim faster. Note that Vic has stamina bar above
his health bar on the heads up display. This will disappear once
you've reached the shore. On shore, you'll notice that Vic has his
pistol equipped. Shoot back at the men on the boat if you like, but
you dont have to kill them to pass the mission.
You'll get a message on your pager from Martinez telling you to
return to Fort Baxter and hide the drugs. Walk into the gate in front
of the base to get back in. Sprint to the pink marker in front of
your barracks. Enter the barracks by walking into the blue marker
in front of the door. After the cutscene, the mission will be complete.
You can save your game at the barracks. Also note that you can

with the pink arrows above their heads, and collect their pistol
ammo. Go inside the building by stepping into the blue arrow.
Put your pistol away, and start attacking the two Cholos
with your fists. Use circle to light punch, X to use a heavy punch,
and square to block. Kill both of the Cholos in here. After the cutscene,
walk outside and take one of the Cholo cars. Drive back to Fort Baxter,
and devlier the cash to Martinez's billet.
You can just get out of the car and do the next Martinez mission.

Cholos on the last mission. Get into the Stinger, and pick up the hooker
you will meet along the way to the blip. Drive to the blip on Starfish
island, and stop in the pink marker. You will arive at a party.
Once the cutscene is over, shoot the two men with your pistol,

old place as a safehouse. Inside, you can save your game, collect
some health, and change Vic's clothes.
Note that you cannot enter Fort Baxter freely anymore, and that
you have lost all your weapons.
Watch the cutscene, as Phil almost blows your head off
with a shotgun. Since Phil is too drunk, you're going to
have to drive. Drive to the pink marker in front of the
police station. After the cutscene, drive down the road,
and drive to the pink marker in front of the hospital.
Phil will tell you to drive close to a Cholo so that he can
perform a drive by on their car. Just stay close to the car,
and avoid hitting oncoming traffic. FOllow the car until Phil
has set the car on fire, then pull away.

Drive the truck around back.
After the cutscene, you will have to drive a forklift
and lift some crates to Phil's truck.Use the right button to

the fire, or it will explode and end the mission. Once all
the BoomShine has been loaded onto Phil's truck, the mission will

the truck have been killed, drive in front of the
truck and block it's path. Phil will get into the truck.
You will now have to protect the truck until it arrives
at Phil's place. A damage meter will appear. Soon,
an Admiral will appear with enemies inside it. Keep up
with Phil and allow the men in your car to shoot
at the enemies. If they get too close to Phil's truck, ram
the car to make them spin out and lose Phil's truck.
Stay close to Phil. He is represented on the radar as
the blue blip. Be sure not to be too close to enemy cars
when they explode. Try your best to ram enemy cars into walls
and light poles so that they are away from Phil and not
causing damage. Once the truck arrives at the docks, the mission
will be complete.
After the mission, you will get a message on your pager
from your little brother, Lance Vance.

to finish the rest of the gang members. Collect their
SMGs before getting back into Phil's truck. Ram one of the Stallions
blocking the alleyways, and drive out onto the street. Head back to Phil's

earlier, and shoot them. Take their pistol ammo, and finish smashing
up their store.
2. Fear The Repo
Marty wants you to "Repo" some stuff for him.
First, take him to his lockup, just down the street from
his trailer. Follow the blue blip after you've dropped Marty
off to get to the first car. It is just down the street from
the lockup, and it is parked. After taking the car, drive it back
to the lockup, but be careful not to damage it, or you will have
to bring it to the Pay N' Spray to get it repaired.

and get to the second car. Drive you Admiral in front of the car,
pull the owner out and drive the car back to the lockup.
Back at the lockup, get into the new Admiral, and find the delivery
van. When you near the van, drive straight into the two men
guarding the truck, ramming them into the wall. Afterwards, with
them taken care of,get out of the car and get into the truck.
You will obtain two wanted level stars, but ignore the cops
and drive to the lockup. If any police cruisers get in your way,
just ram through them. After delivering the truck to the lockup,

This time, you will want to run over the two guards. Get out of the
truck and take their SMGs, then grenade the truck. The game will inform
you that the Cholos are onto you. Make your way to the last truck, and
drive by or run over the guards. Ignore any Cholo re-enforcements
and grenade the last truck to pass the mission. Note that if
you run out of grenades, you can always shoot or smash the trucks
until they explode.

Marty wants to get into the whoring business, and take over
a brothel. Stop by Stonewall J's and pick up the

Get into Marty's truck and drive to the brothel. After the cutscene,
quickly get into the car in front of you or behind the brothel,
and drive the to closest girl to you. It is a
good idea to simply just run over the Cholos
shooting at the girl, then get her to get into the car. Repeat this
for all three girls. A cholo car might try to follow you and ram you,

Take the Ocean Beach strip down, as the streets
are wider and gives you more room to avoid
traffic at high speeds.
When you arrive, you will have to engage
in a variety of Mini-Games to help the director
finish the stunt. The first one is easy. Just scroll
through each zombie and shoot them quickly. This will keep
the Gore Meter high enough.
The next minigame involves slicing zombies with a katana and
making sure they do not enter the store. They will not
attack you. Use a running attack on each one
after locking on to him. Walk between the two
sides the zombies can come from to make sure none
make it past you.

3. Turn On, Tune In, Bug Out
It appears that you and Lance have caught the
attention of the DEA, and they have bugged all your
places. It is too late to try and go find all the
bugs, so the only way to stay out fo trouble will
be to destroy all the transmitting towers
on top of police stations across Vice City. When the
cutscene ends, get into Lance's Infernus and fly down
the street to Ammu-Nation to pick up the rocket
launcher. Drive to the Washington Beach police
station and blow the two towers
by aiming from the ground at the front and back
of the police station. Get back in your car
and head over to the police station in Little Havana.
Blow the two towers here. By now, you should have 4 stars.

so that Lance can take them out quickly. Head toward downtown,
where the hotel is still being built. Hover while Lance shoots the
bikers. After killing all the bikers on the roof, you will have to take
care of the bikers on the ground, too. Fly close and hold the helicopter
steady while Lance kills this wave of bikers. After they are all dead,
a biker with a rocket launcher will shoot down your helicopter.
Both of the Vance brothers live, but Lance is surrounded by bikers.

your sniper rifle to take out the farther targets, using the L button
to refine your aim. Take out the guard on the ramp agaisnt the building
and go up two floors. Shoot all the bikers between you and the Lance.
After they are all dead, Lance will appear, steal a motorcycle, and the
mission will end.

there. You will now have 3 different markers telling you possible locations
of Louise. You will have to search them to be sure. No matter which one you
search first, the first one will not be the one where they took Louise. Search
the one closest to the burger joint first, with a motorcycle, so you
can simple avoid the goons and continue onto the next one. The next location

horrible handling, so get ready to use the handbrake a lot.
Follow the markers through the water. Be sure to lean foward
on the Jetski before you make the jumps, or you will get stuck
on the patches on land that you're supposed to jump over.
If you do get stuck, after 5 seconds, you will be returned to the course
by the game, though you will probably have to turn around and
get some speed before atempting the jump again, wasting lots of
your time. After the final Jetski jump, you will end up
on land. Get onto the PCJ600, and follow
the markers around the streets, until you see a green marker appear.

get closer to the car when you do. When you arrive near your apartment,
the man will get onto a Jetski. Get onto the other Jetski,
and follow him as before, being careful not to gain too much speed,
or you will get too close. When you've gone a distance, you will see some
on stilts and docks, and the man will stop there. Zoom toward a dock, and climb
onto the dock. Shoot all the goons guarding the boat with
your assault rifle. Use your sniper rifle, or manual aim with your assault rifle
to kill the guard with an assault rifle up on

enemy boats circle around the docks. When they are all dead, get
into the boat and drive it to the dock behind Diaz's mansion.

appear again. While you have a timelimit, you are given more then enough
time to take out all the snipers. After they are all dead, get into the truck
with the weapons in it. Gonzales will send goons in cars after you, and

near the hospital, and make your way on foot
toward the business with your assault rifle ready.

quickly). When you've killed all of them,
a group of bikers will attempt to escape on
Angels. Quickly grab one of the remaining bikes,
and chase after them. As you near the group,

are all dead, you will complete the mission

assault rifle ready. After the cutscene, shoot the targets
with your assault rifle quickly, changing targets with the directional
button. If you lose all your armor and need some health, a health
icon will start spawning behind where you started after the cutscene. Pick
it up as frequently as possible. Make sure you take out the
targets inside the pool as well. When all the targets are dead,
one will take off on a Quad across the beach. Quickly get on
the Quad and perform a drive-by on him. When he is dead,
you will complete the mission. You are now able
to purchase Quads at the Hotel.

into the helicopter and steal the first container. Drop
off the container. The second container will appear on
on your radar. You have to take the container off the
back of a truck. The truck moves fairly slowly and stops
often. Use these stops as a chance to pick up
the container, or simply just get ahead of the truck and position
the magnet to grab the container when the truck passes.
Drop off the container. It appears that Diego is being attacked,
and you have to go and pick him up before he is killed.
The easy way to pick him up is wait till they or on the
Ocean Beach hotel strip, and grab the car then, as no trees or light
poles will get in your way. Pick up Diego's
car the same way you picked up the container off of the truck.
Drop off Diego at the parking garage to finish the mission. Be
careful not to swing him into the building quickly,
or he will take damage.

a minigun. Shoot the incoming attacking sharks. When you arrive at the airport,
Gonzales' goons will block off the entrance with their cars. More sharks will
arrive while the weapons are being loaded. Keep shooting the Sharks that attempt
to bypass the barricade, and you will soon have to move over and
protect the other gate. The pilot will fly you over to the gate, and you will
elimate the Sharks. Shoot as many as you can while they enter. The trucks will

Ammu-Nation Equalizer Poster
At the downtown Ammu-Nation, on the wall
Vic faces after entering the shop is a
poster that shows the Equalizer, and below it,
it says "Its the only replacement!". This means
that there is only the Equalizer as a second choice
to replace the Pistol.
Money For Nothing
A term often heard in the game,"Money For Nothing"
was one of the most popular songs in the 1984/1985 year.
Miami Vice References
Like the original Vice City, VCS draws much from the 1980's
television show Miami Vice. The voice actor for Lance Vance
played Ricardo Tubbs on the show. The cars the main characters
drove around in Miami Vice are also in VCS, the Stinger and
the VCPD Cheetah. Miami Vice's most noteable scene included
Phil Collin's "In the Air Tonight", which is prominant
Q.I was having trouble saving cars in the apartment
at 101 Bayshore Avenue
was wondering if anyone else has had the same problem?
I have a PAL version here in New Zealand.
A. It appears that the garages do not work properly
in Vice City Stories. Occasionally, the game
will store them if you save and turn off your game right
afterwards, but most of the time the cars will disappear
from your garages.
Update: One solution seems to be to ram the car against the wall.
This is not a 100% solution. One thing that has always worked for me
is to save my game at the same place my cars are saved. They have
always reappeared when I checked the garage after loading. So far
I have only tried this with the apartment on the second island and
Phil's old house with the flamingo on the first island. If
you try this and have results, please email me and let me know.
Q. Also where do I find the oceanic for the civil asset forfeiture?
A. The Oceanic is a 50s style car that can be found
driving around Little Havana and Ocean Beach.
Q. What is the code for the safe for the Domestabot mission?
Q. Can you take over all of the gang buildings right when you get to the second
Currently I have 29 of 30 gang buildings in my possession but at one of them,
located just across the street of Shady Palms Hospital in Vice Point in
of the bikers, doesn't have a vehicle spawn in front of it, thus not allowing me
to engage in an attack to take it over. Is this suppose to happen or is it a
A. That building must be taken over as part of a story mission later on.
Q. how do you use multiplayer content on gta vice city stories?
A. Press start to enter the menu. Scroll over to the multiplayer
section, and make sure your WLAN switch is on.
Q. Why do my cars always disappear when I drive them to a pink blip,
after the cutscene is over and I start my mission, the car is gone.
A. Parking too close to the blip will make your car disappear. Also, leaving
open on your car will increase the chance that your car will remain in place.
