    **NOTE: The [gnat] replaces the "@" symbol in the e-mail address. It is 
            to thwart spambots looking for email addresses to send spam to. 
            Simply replace [gnat] with "@" when responding. I chose [gnat] 
            because it rhymes with "at" and is easy to remember. Same goes 
            for "." - [snot].

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).

| I.2. My Setup                                                      [MYST] |

This guide was constructed 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:VCS 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.

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 than twenty memory cards for my PlayStation 2.
Many of the memory cards are dedicated to "Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City
Stories", "Grand Theft Auto III", "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" (Original
Version (1.40)), "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories", and "Grand Theft
Auto: San Andreas" (which uses up fifteen cards).

GTA:VCS takes up space on nine of those memory cards.

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.

Welcome to my "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories" 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 my Vice City 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 Stories "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 Stories". Many hours
were spent going over the missions and finding unique ways to solve them. I
think you will be surprised by some 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 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 PSP version. If any of the strategies in this
guide won't work on it then feel free to write me and let me know so I can
make additional adjustments in future revisions.

I will also make many references to "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" within this
guide as there are many places within Vice City Stories that are familiar to
those who played GTA:VC.

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 "The
Yankee Method" 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 Red Balloon, Unique Stunt Jump, and Rampage have 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"):

  >>Red Balloons will be identified with an "BN".
    --Examples: Red Balloon [XXX-BN21].

  >>Rampages will be identified with an "R".
    --Examples: Rampage [XXX-R34].

  >>Unique Stunt Jumps will be identified with a "J".
    --Examples: Unique Stunt Jump [XXX-J24].
                Jump [XXX-J8].

| I.6. "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories"                         [GTCS] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

"Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories" is a prequel to "Grand Theft Auto: Vice
City" and originally appeared on the PlayStation Portable (PSP) handheld
system.

When it came out on the PSP, Rockstar Games said that it had absolutely no
intention of ever porting Vice City Stories to the PlayStation 2 console.
But, after what happened with "Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories" plus
the large user base of the PS2 just begging for another GTA game, there was
no way I was going to believe them.

Sure enough, "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories" was released, with little
fanfare, on the PlayStation 2 game console in March of 2007. And, of course,
you are now reading the guide I have made for it.

Vice City Stories, set in the year 1984, serves to fill in some details of
some of the characters, and the city, featured in "Grand Theft Auto: Vice
City" which is set in 1986.

It has more side-missions plus the ability to build an empire. The number of
Main Story missions seems smaller than in "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" and
the game tends to chug badly when there is a lot going on.

Despite it being a port of the PSP version, the PS2 version is a pretty solid
game that feels familiar yet different at the same time. And pretty cheap
($20) too.

With all that said, let's get down to business and I will start with the
differences between the PSP and PS2 versions.....

 /=========================================================================\
0===========================================================================0
| I.7. Differences Between the PSP and PS2 Versions                  [DFVR] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

When "Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories" came out on the PS2, there were
no differences between it and the PSP versions other than graphical and
control improvements.

But, when the PS2 version of "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories" came out,
it quickly became apparent that there were many differences between the PS2
and PSP versions other than the graphical and control improvements.

These changes included extra side-missions, extra Rampages, extra Jumps, and
fewer Turismo races.

Listed below are the most notable differences between the PS2 and PSP
versions:

0==================================0
| Six additional Unique Stunt Jumps \
0=========================================================>

  --[LTV-J12] (Little Havana).
  --[SFI-J16] (Starfish Island).
  --[VCP-J26] (Vice Point).
  --[VCP-J29] (Vice Point).
  --[OCB-J32] (Ocean Beach).
  --[OCB-J33] (Ocean Beach).

0=========================0
| Five additional Rampages \
0=========================================================>

  --[LTV-R15] (Little Havana).
  --[SFI-R18] (Starfish Island).
  --[PRI-R19] (Prawn Island).
  --[VIM-R20] (North Point Mall).
  --[OCB-R35] (Ocean Beach).

0=================================0
| Five additional Checkpoint Races \
0=========================================================>

  --"Playground on the Dock" (Viceport).
  --"Crims On Water Wings" (Ocean Beach).
  --"Caddy Daddy" (Leaf Links Golf Club).
  --"Playground on the Park" (Ocean Beach).
  --"Hyman Memorial O.D.T." (Escobar International Airport).

0====================================0
| One additional vehicle side-mission \
0=========================================================>

  --"Rush!" (Viceport).

0============================0
| Three fewer "Turismo" races \
0=========================================================>

In addition, one of the Rampages in the PSP version was moved from a parking
lot in Downtown north to The Dirtbike Track area (Rampage [DTN-R2]).

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

In addition to cheat discs, such as Codebreaker, there are also various
programs that you can try to use with the game:

0====================0
| Xploder HDTV Player \
0=====================================>

  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 Stories" 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 the X Button. 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 Stories 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.

0=================0
| GS Mode Selector \
0=====================================>

  This is a small program that is used with the memory card exploit known as 
  Free McBoot. Like with HDTV Viewer you can also view games in progressive 
  scan using this program.

  Unfortunately, this program does not work with "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City 
  Stories".

0=========0
| HDLoader \
0=====================================>

  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).

  VCS, from what I know, has always never been compatible with the earliest
  versions of HDAdvance and HDLoader. Only the latest version of HDLoader, 
  .8c, works with VCS.

  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. With VCS everything (initial
  load, loading from memory cards, entering/exiting buildings, changing
  outfits, loading missions, and the "Welcome to" screens that come up when 
  you go from one half of Vice City to another) loads up faster. Well worth 
  the effort to install onto a hard drive.

  However, there is one problem that must be noted. If you make a game save 
  to the Memory Card when playing VCS then that save will have an incorrect 
  time stamp.

  Regardless of the date and time on your PS2 the new game save will always
  have a time stamp of 1/1/2000 00:00:00. The good news is that even if all
  save slots have game saves with the same timestamp then the game will 
  always load up the latest save without any problems.

  But you can fix this minor issue by changing some settings within HDLoader.

  After installing the game onto the HDD, highlight GTA:VCS on the Game List
  menu and press SELECT. This will bring up the Game Compatibility Settings. 
  It will look like this:

      Slow HDD access:                 No
      Disable DVD9 support:            No
      Kill HDL After launch:           No
      Date/timefix 2:                  No
      Date/timefix 3:                  No
      Disable network support:         No
      Disable CzC patch:               No
      Soul Calibur 2 / Suikoden V:     No

  As you can see all of the default settings are set to "No". You need to 
  make the following changes to make sure that GTA:VCS works perfectly with
  HDLoader:

      Slow HDD access:                 No
      Disable DVD9 support:            No
      Kill HDL After launch:          YES <----------
      Date/timefix 2:                 YES <----------
      Date/timefix 3:                  No
      Disable network support:         No
      Disable CzC patch:               No
      Soul Calibur 2 / Suikoden V:     No

  Although I kill HDL as a precaution it is the timefix option that is most 
  important. This setting will correct the timestamp issue.

  Outside of the timestamp issue there are no other problems with GTA:VCS 
  with HDLoader.

0================0
| Open PS2 Loader \
0=====================================>

  This program is meant to replace HDLoader and is more solid than HDL. You 
  use this in place of HDL and it will recognize the HDD and all the games 
  you have already installed.

  OPL, or "Opal" as I like to call it, has its own compatibility modes for 
  games and won't recognize the settings used in HDL.

  Based on the time I have played VCS on Opal I found it to run just as 
  smooth as it was on HDL.

  Unlike with HDL there are no timestamping issues to worry about so you 
  won't have any problems there.

| I.9. New Features                                                  [NWFT] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Explained below are four new, and notable, features introduced in "Grand
Theft Auto: Vice City Stories":

0==================0
| Discovered Extras \
0===============================================>

  In "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City", and most other GTAs, you had to carefully
  keep track of the Unique Stunt Jumps, Rampages, and Packages you collected.
  It was especially easy to lose track of how many Jumps you did and it was
  frustrating to figure out which one you missed since there was no way to 
  tell if you got the Jump or not.

  In Vice City Stories a new feature was introduced that makes it easy to 
  keep track of such things.

  When you go to the Main Map, by pressing Pause, then hold down the X Button
  to display the map options. When you do that then you will see something
  called "Show Discovered Extras".

  By holding down the X Button and using D-Pad Right and D-Pad Left then you
  can see which Red Balloons you have popped, Rampages you have completed, 
  and what Jumps you have done.

  This is also used to un-clutter your map by turning off the Empire Sites
  which appear about a third of the way through the game.

0==============0
| Weapon Bribes \
0===============================================>

  Don't you just hate it when you get Wasted or Busted and you have to 
  rebuild your arsenal of weapons from scratch?

  Not anymore. Whenever you get sent to a Police Station or Hospital you will
  notice a Purchase Icon (which looks like a lock) nearby.

  For $2,000 you can regain your weapons and all the ammo they had when they
  were taken from you (but you can't get your Body Armor back).

  Very nice feature indeed.

0============================0
| Vehicle Mission Checkpoints \
0===============================================>

  One of the more aggravating things about some of the vehicle side-missions,
  like the Ambulance Mission, is having to start again from Level 1 when
  retrying after a failed attempt. Even more irritating is if you failed near
  the very end.

  Another new feature added is Level Checkpoints. When you complete Level 5 
  and Level 10 of a vehicle side-mission then you reach a checkpoint. If you 
  fail after those checkpoints then you restart at the current checkpoint 
  instead of Level 1 when retrying. This makes things less frustrating.

  The following vehicle missions have the checkpoint feature:

    >>Ambulance Mission.
    >>Firetruck Mission.
    >>Vigilante Mission.
    >>Air Rescue.
    >>Beach Patrol.

  It must be pointed out, however, is that in the other GTAs the vehicle
  side-missions were twelve levels. But, in Vice City Stories, they are 
  FIFTEEN levels, three more than the other GTAs.

  Not exactly cool but the next feature is even worse.....

0==============0
| Driver Damage \
0===============================================>

  While the three above features are welcomed, this one feature is not. The
  best way I can describe this feature is Driver Damage.

  In the other GTAs, when you were in a vehicle and was shot at, then the
  vehicle took the damage exclusively. When you were in a bulletproof vehicle
  or a Rhino then you were practically invincible from gunfire.

  Not anymore.

  Whenever you are in a vehicle, be it a regular car, bulletproof, Rhino, 
  even a helicopter, you can be shot at, and take damage, when inside.

  That's right, even in a tank they can hit you through the front viewport 
  and hurt, and possibly, kill you. In bulletproof vehicles they can hit you 
  through the windows.

  Now what good is it to use such cool vehicles like that if you can be 
  killed while inside them?

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

Although the manual covers the setup pretty good, I felt that I should 
include a section on controls for those who have acquired used copies of Vice 
City Stories that have no manuals.

I have also included basic action and vehicle information with their
respective control schemes.

0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

As with any GTA game, there are plenty of things you can do when on foot.

[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 acquiring the Infinite Run feature which 
      is obtained 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.

[3] - This button is also used to recruit gang members for use in gang 
      warfare and general mischief. Switch to a Melee Weapon (like a Fist),
      Target a gang member, and press the R3 Button to recruit.

[4] - These commands are used with the Binoculars and the Camera.

[5] - This command is used with the Camera.

0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

While all GTAs have some form of hand-to-hand weaponless combat, in Vice City
Stories, it has been expanded tremendously.

You can grab people, throw them, get on top of them, use combos, and even do
insta-kill neckbreaks. Neat.

Of course, the people on the street aren't exactly weaklings. Many of them
will fight back when attacked and some of them are pretty tough to bring
down.

In addition, too many neckbreaks at one time will quickly attract the
attention of the Cops.

To start fighting someone, target them with the R1 Button and then perform
any action you want to take.

There are plenty of weapons to use in Vice City Stories and have their own
set of commands to use when wielding one.

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

[1] - When targeting someone then you can use the L2 and R2 Buttons to switch 
      between targets when they are grouped together.

[2] - This allows you to freely aim your weapon in any direction you choose. 
      Very helpful when going after the Red Balloons (explained later in the
      guide). For best results, hold the L3 Button first THEN press the R1 
      Button. This will keep you from accidentally targeting someone (like a 
      Cop).

[3] - This is used with Free Aim mode, Sniper Rifles, and Rocket Launchers.

[4] - When holding a melee weapon (like a Baseball Bat) then the Circle 
      Button is used to swing at your target.

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

      When holding a gun (like an Equalizer) or a heavy weapon (like a 
      Rocket Launcher) then you use the Circle Button to shoot.

[5] - These commands are used when targeting with a Sniper Rifle.

One other interesting difference between Vice City Stories and GTA: Vice City
is the inclusion of bicycles. There is only one checkpoint race, "Mashin' Up
the Mall", that uses a bicycle. There is also one parked in the backyard just
west of The Mendez Brothers house on Prawn Island.

But, for the most part, they are kind of useless in general practice.
However, it does make for a very amusing rampage vehicle when shooting up the
town and pissing off the Cops.

There are no skills to upgrade like you could in "Grand Theft Auto: San
Andreas" but the Infinite Run feature (from doing the Ambulance Mission) will
keep you from slowing down when on a bike.

In Vice City Stories you can swim, unlike Tommy Vercetti in "Grand Theft
Auto: Vice City" who prefers to just drown. You can't go underwater, like you
could in "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas", but you can still do pretty well on
the surface.

Of course, you're thinking "what's going to keep me from swimming to the
other side early". Two things.

First, there is a Swimming Stamina Bar that appears where the Armor Bar is.
You have a limited amount of swimming stamina while in the water.

It goes down faster the faster you swim. When it runs out then you drown. You
can gain Infinite Swimming Stamina by successfully completing the Beach
Patrol vehicle side-mission (after unlocking Vice City Beach).

Second, there is a Wave Generator that activates when you get far enough east
of where you are supposed to be.

When you go too far east then you will start to see very large waves being
generated. These waves will stop you in your tracks when you are swimming
and, when you stop swimming, then the waves will push you back west.

But there is an easy way to get to the other side early and that will be
explained later in the guide.

As with all the other GTAs, there are plenty of cars to use in Vice City
Stories. From junkers and gang cars to the fanciest sports cars. They can all
be used here. And there two new land vehicles introduced in VCS.

The first is the Bover '64 which is a hovercraft and the second is a Splitz-6
ATV. These two are all-terrain vehicles and can go over any surface.

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. But there is a new
water vehicle being introduced in VCS: the Jetski. This vehicle is perfect
for water based jumping, racing, and drive-bying boats.

There are plenty of helicopters to use in Vice City Stories. They can be used
to quickly fly from one part of Vice City to another. Most of these choppers
are used in side-missions and checkpoint races.

The Sea Sparrow, which was an unlockable vehicle in GTA: Vice City, only
appears during the mission "The Colonel's Coke" (Reni Wassulmaier) and the
"Land, Sea, and Air Ace" checkpoint race in VCS. You need to fail one of
those missions while in the Sea Sparrow to acquire it.

One of the biggest differences between the helicopters used in VCS and the
ones in GTA: Vice City is the fact that, when you hit a solid object like
a building, then the chopper doesn't spin in the direction of the blades.

This makes it difficult to tell when you are actually hitting something and
taking damage. This also makes it problematic when you are in tight spaces
(such as in-between buildings).

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
the guide).

You can acquire this vehicle during a 6-Star Wanted Rating and take it from
the soldiers or wait until after completion of the mission "Last Stand"
(Ricardo Diaz) where one will be unlocked for you at Fort Baxter Air Base.

Although the Rhino is pretty tough, it is prone to being flipped on its roof
more easily than in GTA: Vice City when hitting an object. Of course, it can
still be easily destroyed by fire (from a Molotov or Flamethrower). Another
weakness is Driver Damage which was explained in the last chapter.

The Hunter appears at the southeastern part of Escobar International Airport
after completion of the mission "Last Stand" (Ricardo Diaz) and is used in
the checkpoint race "Skywolf". It is also the single most preferred vehicle
to use in the Vigilante Mission (explained later in the guide).

If you wish to use the Hunter outside of the "Skywolf" race then either push
it some distance from its spot with a large vehicle or cancel the race by
pressing the R3 Button.

There are some differences between the Hunter used in Vice City Stories and
the one used in GTA: Vice City.

First off, the Machine Gun has an incredible auto-aim system. The gun will
automatically rotate to hit targets, even those to the side of the Hunter. A
great way to rack up kills in the Vigilante Mission.

However, it also has some disadvantages. Like the other helicopters in VCS,
it won't spin when hitting a building or any other solid object making it
more difficult to tell when you are taking damage.

But the worst part is that the Hunter in VCS is MUCH weaker than the one in
GTA: Vice City. It doesn't take a whole lot to destroy the attack chopper.
Very disappointing.

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).
  >>Driving a car (excluding rescue and Police Vehicles) into a Pay 'N' 
    Spray.
  >>Getting a Police Bribe Icon (drops the Wanted Rating down a notch).
  >>Completing the current mission (if you get a Wanted Rating during one).
  >>Getting Busted or Wasted.
  >>Changing into a different Outfit. Works up to 2-Star.

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 they 
  are pretty fast in Vice City Stories, and they will smack you with their 
  Nightsticks when close enough (and are pretty good bare-fist fighters too).

  Even at this Rating they are pretty aggressive and will put you on your ass
  quickly if you try to fight them without some kind of weapon (although you
  can grab hold of one and beat him senseless). Hiding out somewhere for
  awhile will get rid of a 1-Star Wanted Rating.

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.

  They are also very aggressive in vehicle pursuit, almost too aggressive. 
  You can't wait things out this time but you can still switch out clothes to 
  get rid of a 2-Star rating.

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

  At this level a helicopter will start pursuing you and will shoot at you 
  if you stand still long enough for it to do so. And the Police will get 
  more aggressive in their pursuit of you including the use of Spike Strips 
  which are used to blow out the tires of your car.

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

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 Police helicopter.

  This is in addition to everything else being thrown at you. And the Police 
  become more aggressive still in that when you approach a roadblock all of 
  the SWAT fire together at your vehicle and will damage it considerably by 
  the time you approach it.

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

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

  Approaching an FBI roadblock in anything other than a bulletproof vehicle
  is nothing short of suicide since they can quickly destroy even the
  toughest car before you can approach the roadblock.

  You can max out at 5-Star after completion of the mission "To Victor, the 
  Spoils" (Louise Cassidy-Williams).

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 SMGs 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 "From 
  Zero to Hero" (Lance Vance).

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.

Listed below are the Police Vehicles utilized in Vice City Stories:

0=============0
| VCPD Cruiser \
0=====================================>

  Found: On the street and at all Police Stations.
  Notes: As a bonus you get five Shotgun shells when entering a VCPD Cruiser. 
         If you don't already have a Shotgun then you can get a Shotgun with 
         five shells.

0=================0
| VCPD Wintergreen \
0=====================================>

  Found: At the Little Havana Police Station.
  Notes: You can shoot forward when riding this motorcycle which can make it 
         easier to do the Vigilante Mission.

0=============0
| VCPD Cheetah \
0=====================================>

  Found: During a 3-Star Wanted Rating.

0==============0
| VCPD Enforcer \
0=====================================>

  Found: During a 4-Star Wanted Rating or at the back of the Downtown Police 
         Station.
  Notes: As a bonus you can get Body Armor when entering a VCPD Enforcer.

0===============0
| FBI Washington \
0=====================================>

  Found: During a 5-Star Wanted Rating.

0======0
| Rhino \
0=====================================>

  Found: During a 6-Star Wanted Rating - also unlocked inside of Fort Baxter 
         after completion of the mission "Last Stand" (Ricardo Diaz).

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

  Found: Unlocked at Escobar International Airport after completion of the 
         mission "Last Stand" (Ricardo Diaz) and is also used for the
         checkpoint race "Skywolf".

Although there are Motorcycle Cops in Vice City Stories, they are not
aggressive at all. This is a far cry from the Motorcycle Cops in "Grand Theft
Auto: San Andreas" which constantly shot at your car from behind and made car
chases far less fun.

But this means that you now have an option of using the Police motorcycle in
the Vigilante Mission which can make it somewhat easier due to the fact that
you can shoot forward instead of just from the sides.

One of the best vehicles to use in the Vigilante Mission is the Rhino. The
Rhino isn't too hard to get once you are able to generate 6-Star Wanted
Ratings to get them to show up. I have a chapter that outlines on how to
acquire one and how to use it in the Vigilante Mission.

The Hunter, however, shows up after the Main Story Missions are done (after
the mission "Last Stand" (Ricardo Diaz)) and used in the checkpoint race
"Skywolf". Nevertheless, if you waited this long to do the Vigilante Mission,
then this is the absolute best vehicle to use.

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.

After successfully completing all four vehicle lists for the Civil Asset
Forfeiture Impound then all of your visits to the Pay 'N' Sprays are free.

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

  >>Little Haiti (Vice City Mainland).
  >>Viceport (Vice City Mainland).
  >>Vice Point (Vice City Beach).
  >>Ocean Beach (Vice City Beach).

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

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.

However, you can regain your weapons, but not your Body Armor, by utilizing
the nearby Weapon Bribe Purchase Icon (explained earlier). But don't wait too
long as it will disappear after you wander off and you will have to rebuild
your arsenal from scratch.

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 (Vice City Mainland).
  >>Little Havana (Vice City Mainland).
  >>Vice Point (Vice City Beach).
  >>Washington Beach (Vice City Beach).

If you do something to empty your Health Bar, 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.

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

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

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

  When locking onto targets with a gun (like a Pistol) 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
| The Tank Gun Boost \
0=====================================>

  When you want to increase the speed of the often slow Rhino then rotate the 
  Main Gun 180 degrees so it faces the rear. Then fire the gun and keep 
  firing.

  The gun recoil will then propel it forward. The faster you fire, the faster 
  the tank will go. You can make the tank go very fast this way.

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.

At 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.

To the east of Little Havana is Starfish Island. This area is where the
richest make their residence. Million dollar mansions dot the small island.
Plus a large one being built on the south side of the island.

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.

However, due to the threat of a major hurricane, nobody can fly in or out of
the Airport. All of the bridges to Vice City Beach (the East Side) have been
closed so you cannot go there for the foreseeable future.

Large waves, which are being generated by the large tropical disturbance
offshore, will prevent anyone from swimming very far in Vice City's waters.

Just north of Escobar International Airport is Fort Baxter Air Base. This is
the main military base for the Vice City area. Its primary purposes is to
serve as a deterrent to nearby communist Cuba and to help out law enforcement
in crisis situations.

And it is where we start the story.....

0================0
| Vice City: 1984 \
0=====================================>

A military truck drives into Fort Baxter Air Base. In the back is a lone
passenger: Private Victor Vance. He has joined the military to help support
his family which includes a sick brother who needs constant care.

After leaving the truck then he meets his superior officer: Sgt. Jerry
Martinez. However, Martinez turns out to be less than professional. He would
rather get rich than help his country.

After the two of them chat for a bit then Jerry wants Vic to go and pick up a
package for him: "no risk". He also gives Vic a pager and the use of his
motorcycle.

This also starts the mission "Soldier" (Sgt. Jerry Martinez). Go over to the
V.I.P. dock near Escobar International Airport (but, if you want, then go
into the Main Terminal building and get the Body Armor found at Gate 9-14 on
the upper level before going to the dock).

When you get to the dock then you start a cutscene with the contact. During
the cutscene you are given the package and a message to give to Martinez.

Unfortunately, you are ambushed and have to defend the boat against the
attackers. The boat is eventually damaged to the point of where you have to
abandon ship. After jumping from the boat then you are given control again.

Ignore the attackers and swim back to shore. You will be given instructions
to head back to your Barracks. Once you get to your Barracks then the mission
will be successfully completed and you will get $50.

Then go ahead, save your game and have a look around the place.....

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

Your Safehouse at Fort Baxter Air Base is a simple Barracks where you can
save your game (and obtain Pistol ammo with the nearby Pistol Weapon Icon).

At the beginning there are no Weapon Icons here but this is where they will
be when you start popping Red Balloons (the Weapon Icons will be just outside
your barracks).

To the east of your Barracks is a Health Icon and just to the northwest is a
Patriot you can use to help explore the city.

During the course of the game you will gain three additional Safehouses you
can use to save your game.

In addition, you can gain an Assault Rifle, and ammo, by attacking your
fellow soldiers on base (neckbreak them from behind).

To start, I'm going to do as much of the off-story stuff as possible before 
doing the second mission for Sgt. Jerry Martinez, "Cleaning House".

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 the Infinite Run feature) and shooting Red Balloons to generate
Weapon Icons for your Safehouses.

After saving the game then let's begin by.....

Although "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories" 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 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 "Grand Theft
Auto: Vice City".

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

Now, that we're finally able to save the game, let's have a tour of this area
of Vice City starting with the:

  >>Fort Baxter Safehouse
    *********************
      Location: Fort Baxter.
      Map: (E-1).
      Notes: This is just a basic place to save your game and find some of 
             the Weapon Icons you can earn at this early stage of the game.

Leave the Safehouse and get into the nearby Patriot. After that then go
through the main gate and turn right. Take the road curve going south and
enter the tunnel.

After going through and leaving the tunnel then you will see a large building
to your right which is the:

  >>EIA Main Terminal Building
    **************************
      Location: (Central) Escobar International Airport.
      Map: (F-[1, 2]).
      Notes: This is the main terminal for the Airport. It has two large 
             gates that serves the largest planes that come to Vice City.

Just after the terminal then you will see the entrance for the Airport
grounds. Turn right through this entrance and go west along the south side of
the terminal building.

Just after the terminal building then you will see a large tower which is
the:

  >>EIA Control Tower
    *****************
      Location: (Central) Escobar International Airport, just west of the EIA 
                Main Terminal Building.
      Map: (F-1).
      Notes: This large lavender colored tower serves the Airport.

And right next to it to the west is the:

  >>Main Runway
    ***********
      Location: (West) Escobar International Airport.
      Map: ([F, G, H]-1).
      Notes: This north-south runway is the longest of the three runways that 
             serve the Airport area.

And just to the west of that is the:

  >>EIA Fire Department
    *******************
      Location: (West) Escobar International Airport, just west of the Main 
                Runway.
      Map: (F-1).
      Notes: This is the main Fire Department for Escobar International 
             Airport and has a Firetruck which you can use to do the 
             Firetruck Mission.

From here, turn left and head south along the Main Runway and you will
eventually intersect with the:

  >>South Runway
    ************
      Location: (South) Escobar International Airport.
      Map: (G-1), (F-2).
      Notes: This southwest-northeast runway is one of the two secondary 
             runways for the Airport area.

Now turn left and head east until you reach a large building with a short
control tower. And this building is the:

  >>EIA Freight and Cargo Terminal
    ******************************
      Location: (Southeast) Escobar International Airport, southeast of the 
                South Runway.
      Map: (G-2).
      Notes: This large building is the main cargo terminal for Vice City.

From here, head north and exit the Airport grounds the same way you came in
then turn left. Then turn right when you get to the next three-way
intersection.

Then go forward through the next four-way intersection. As you continue
forward then you will see a large building ahead of you which is the:

  >>North Terminal Building
    ***********************
      Location: (North) Escobar International Airport.
      Map: (E-1).
      Notes: This is the north terminal building for the Airport.

Take the road curve going west then the next one going south and stop at the
next three-way intersection. To the southeast is a white building you went to
in the first mission which is the:

  >>V.I.P. Terminal
    ***************
      Location: (West) Escobar International Airport.
      Map: (F-1).
      Notes: This is a boat dock for the Airport. This allows people, 
             especially rich ones, to take a boat to and from the Airport 
             area.

Now from this three-way intersection, turn left. As you get near the next
four-way intersection then you should see to your left the:

  >>EIA Main Parking Lot
    ********************
      Location: (North) Escobar International Airport, just south of the 
                North Terminal Building.
      Map: (E-1).
      Notes: This is the main parking lot for the Airport.

Continue forward all the way to the three-way intersection where this road
ends then turn right. Then turn left at the next three-way intersection.

From here, follow the road curve going south. As you continue forward towards
the next road curve then you should see to your left the:

  >>EIA East Parking Lot
    ********************
      Location: (Southwest) Little Havana, next door west of The Fuel Depot.
      Map: (F-2).
      Notes: This is one of the parking areas for nearby Escobar 
             International Airport.

Continue forward and take the next road curve going east. Continue forward
and, as you get near the next four-way intersection, then you should see to
your right:

  >>The Beachcomber Hotel
    *********************
      Location: (South) Little Havana.

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

As you went about the city then you may have seen some buildings, that range
from dumpy looking construction style trailers to larger gray and blue
warehouse type buildings, with either a large red SUV, a yellow muscle car,
or a motorcycle in front.

These are known as Empire Sites and you will be taking over and making your
own during the course of the game. They will also appear on your in-game map
later in the game but at this point they do not.

In addition, although you can take a motorcycle from an Empire Site, the SUV
and muscle cars are locked. You may also see the gangs who currently own
these sites fight amongst one another (a good way to get weapons and cash off
of the dead bodies).

In addition to Empire Sites you will also see many small business with a blue
arrow in front. These are businesses you can enter.

At this point you can't do much of anything with them other than rob them for
some quick cash. But they are interconnected with Empire Building which you
will do later.

Below is a list of enterable businesses that are scattered throughout Vice
City:

  >>Mal Viento Deli
  >>Hardcore Pawn
  >>Fidl Groceries
  >>Electric Boulevard
  >>Hermit Clothing
  >>Verdi Supermarket
  >>Curve Electronics

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

Weapons are the tools of the trade for any professional criminal. There are 
thirty three different weapons and items, 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 or Binoculars). To
switch out one weapon for another within the same slot, go over to the weapon
you want and press the L1 Button to switch out.

With the exception of the Mini-Gun, you can run moderately fast to very fast
when wielding weapons.

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):

                   locations.
  --Cost: How much the weapon costs and where to purchase it. It should be 
          noted that after successful completion of Phil's Shooting Range 
          then the prices for you pay for weapons at all Ammu-Nations (and 
          Stonewall J's) will be reduced.

             ++$2,000 - North Point Mall Ammu-Nation.
             ++$1,500 - North Point Mall Ammu-Nation (after completion of 
                        Phil's Shooting Range).
        Notes: The best handgun around and one of the best weapons to use 
               period. This 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.

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

  All of the Shotguns use the same ammo so you can actually increase your 
  Shotgun ammo when switching from one type of Shotgun to another. 

    >>Equalizer
      *********
        Appears after: "Soldier" (Sgt. Jerry Martinez).
        Cost:
             ++$1,000 - Downtown Ammu-Nation.
             ++$750 - Downtown Ammu-Nation (after completion of Phil's 
                      Shooting Range).
        Notes: Just a standard pump action single barreled shotgun. Slow on 
               the fire rate but still effective.

    >>Stubby Shotgun
      **************
        Appears after: "O, Brothel, Where Art Thou?" (Marty J. Williams).
        Cost:
             ++$1,200 - Stonewall J's.
             ++$900 - Stonewall J's (after completion of Phil's Shooting 
                      Range).
        Notes: This Shotgun has had the barrel sawn off to make it easier to 
               conceal. However, this greatly reduces its range. But it's 
               still a real beast up close.

    >>Spaz 12
      *******
        Appears after: "From Zero to Hero" (Lance Vance).
        Cost:
             ++$4,000 - Ocean Beach Ammu-Nation.
             ++$3,000 - Ocean Beach Ammu-Nation (after completion of Phil's 
                        Shooting Range).
        Notes: A much cooler looking rapid-fire shotgun. This is the best 
               Shotgun in the game.

| 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, boat, or Jetski.
  You can also gain additional ammo when switching between sub-machine guns.

    >>Mac-10
      ******
        This gun has a fast rate of fire but a short effective range. And 
        it's also pretty weak resulting in lots of rounds to kill someone. 
        But you can run and aim at the same time like you can with a Pistol.

    >>Scorpion
      ********
        Appears after: "O, Brothel, Where Art Thou?" (Marty J. Williams).
        Cost:
             ++$350 - Stonewall J's.
             ++$270 - Stonewall J's (after completion of Phil's Shooting 
                      Range).
        Notes: This has the largest magazine of this group and is more 
               accurate and powerful than the Mac-10 but has a slower rate of 
               fire. Like the Pistol and the Mac-10, you can also aim and run 
               at the same time using the Scorpion.

    >>Micro-SMG
      *********
        Appears after: "Soldier" (Sgt. Jerry Martinez).
        Cost:
             ++$600 - Downtown Ammu-Nation.
             ++$450 - Downtown Ammu-Nation (after completion of Phil's 
                      Shooting Range).
        Notes: One of the better sub-machine guns, it has a good rate of fire 
               and accuracy. It also has a slightly faster reload than the 
               other sub-machine guns.

               Because you have to use two hands when firing, you can't aim 
               and run at the same time while using the Micro-SMG.

    >>SMG

                        Shooting Range).
        Notes: The best sub-machine gun in the group. Has a high rate of 
               accuracy and fire making it preferred choice for drive-bys. 

               Because you have to use two hands when firing, you can't aim 
               and run at the same time.

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

  Both of the assault rifles listed here use the same ammo so you can 
  increase the amount of ammo you get by switching rifles.

    >>AK-47

        Appears after: "From Zero to Hero" (Lance Vance).
        Cost:

             ++$3,150 - Ocean Beach Ammu-Nation (after completion of Phil's

        Notes: This powerful Russian made assault rifle has a good rate of 
               fire and decent range.

    >>Assault Rifle
      *************
        Appears after: "From Zero to Hero" (Lance Vance).

             ++$4,050 - North Point Mall Ammu-Nation (after completion of 
                        Phil's Shooting Range).
        Notes: This has a very fast rate of fire and better range but a small 
               clip which requires frequent reloading.

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

  These are some of the most powerful weapons in the game. They can be used 
  to easily deal with the toughest of situations.

    >>M249
      ****
        A large powerful Army-style machine gun. It uses a 7.62 mm NATO round 
        and has a moderate rate of fire. Even so, this weapon will make quick 
        work of even the toughest opponent.

    >>Flamethrower
      *************
        Better than the Molotovs for roasting nearby enemies because you can 
        aim where the flames go. Great for clearing large crowds quickly. And 
        it's pretty effective against the Rhino too.

        While you can run with this weapon, you do run slower than you can 
        with other weapons.

    >>Mini-Gun
      ********
        Appears after: "Farewell to Arms" (Gonzalez).
        Cost:
             ++$15,000 - North Point Mall Ammu-Nation.
             ++$11,250 - North Point Mall Ammu-Nation (after completion of 
                         Phil's Shooting Range).
        Notes: This gun, by far, is the most powerful non-explosive weapon in 
               the game. This is also the only weapon you cannot run with.

    >>Rocket Launcher
      ***************
        Appears after: "Turn On, Tune In, Bug Out" (Lance Vance).
        Cost:
             ++$9,000 - Ocean Beach Ammu-Nation.
             ++$6,750 - Ocean Beach Ammu-Nation (after completion of 
                        Phil's Shooting Range).
        Notes: The ultimate in maximum destruction. With this weapon in hand 
               all will fear you.

               While you can run with this weapon, you do run slower than you 
               can with other weapons. This weapon is also known as an RPG-7.

             ++$4,500 - Ocean Beach Ammu-Nation (after completion of 
                        Phil's Shooting Range).
        Notes: This fires one shot at a time and reloads slowly but it is 
               very effective. Can also be used like binoculars to scope 
               things out.

               This weapon is also known as a civilian model of both the M24 
               and the M40.

    >>Laser Sniper
      ************
        Appears after: "From Zero to Hero" (Lance Vance).

                        Phil's Shooting Range).
        Notes: The best sniper rifle around. It has a laser scope, rapid fire 
               and multi-round capability.

| II.9. Red Balloons Explained                                       [RDEX] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

In past GTA games you had to collect Hidden Packages which were usually close
to the ground. But, for Vice City Stories, things are a little different.

This time you have to find and pop Red Balloons to gain Weapon Icons for your
Safehouses plus you gain $250 per balloon.

These Red Balloons are usually high up and often found under roof overhangs.
Most of these can be popped by the use of a Pistol or Assault Rifle but some
of them can only be acquired by a Sniper Rifle.

However, I have been told by reader Robert Sassoon that he prefers to wait
until after the game and get a Hunter to go after the Balloons. He just fires
at the vicinity of the Balloon to pop it.

Because you have to pop these collectibles with a weapon, one must take care
not to accidentally target people (especially Cops) when trying to acquire
them.

To go into free-aim mode hold down the L3 Button then hold down the R1
Button. Once you are in free-aim mode then let go of the L3 Button so you can
aim the reticle.

One more thing, instead of 100 Red Balloons, there are only 99 that need to
be found. This decision was inspired by a popular German song ("99
Luftballoons") that came out in the early '80s.

Also refer to the Main Map to see which Red Balloons you have popped. Hold
down the X Button while at the Main Map to bring up Show Discovered Extras
then use D-Pad to switch to Red Balloons.

A recap of what Weapon Icons you get for your Safehouses by popping Red
Balloons:

  >>10 Red Balloons - Pistol
  >>20 Red Balloons - Scorpion
  >>30 Red Balloons - Stubby Shotgun
  >>40 Red Balloons - Molotovs
  >>50 Red Balloons - AK-47
  >>60 Red Balloons - Body Armor
  >>70 Red Balloons - Flamethrower
  >>80 Red Balloons - Equalizer
  >>90 Red Balloons - Sniper Rifle
  >>99 Red Balloons - M249

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

Listed below are the forty seven Red Balloons that can be found on Vice City
Mainland and Starfish Island. In addition, I've included a breakdown of
Balloons in each neighborhood.

The information on each Red Balloon is broken down as follows:

  --Location: Specific location of the Balloon.
  --Map: Map co-ordinates on the printed map that comes included with the 
         "GTA: Vice City Stories" game disc.
  --Directions: How to get there and find the Balloon (if applicable). 
                Landmarks are based off of easily notable land or city 
                features.

            Directions: Go to the parking lot at the north side of Hyman 
                        Memorial Stadium and stop at the east-most parking 
                        spot. From here, look up and southeast to find the 
                        Red Balloon.

[DTN-BN2] - Location: Really high up at the east side of The Mendez Building.
            Map: (A-2).
            Directions: This Red Balloon can only be acquired with a Sniper 
                        Rifle.

[DTN-BN3] - Location: Underneath a palm tree.
            Map: (A-2).
            Directions: From the four-way intersection near the northeast 
                        corner of The Mendez Building, go north along the 
                        main road. When you get to the curve that turns east 
                        then veer northwest to enter an enclosed area.

                        There is a set of stairs in a corner of this area, 
                        with a Rampage underneath, that you can use to climb 
                        to the roof of this building. Get near the large 
                        building to the east and look north to find the Red 
                        Balloon.

            Map: (A-3).
            Directions: From Red Balloon [DTN-BN3], head back down the stairs 
                        and go to the sidewalk at the edge of the road curve. 
                        Look up and southeast to find a large satellite dish 
                        on top of the building across the street from you.

                        You should also see the Red Balloon under this dish.

[DTN-BN5] - Location: Under a palm tree behind a large building.
            Map: (A-3).
            Directions: From Red Balloon [DTN-BN4], head east to the next 
                        road curve going south and stop. At the outside part 
                        of this curve is a large white building with light 
                        blue horizontal stripes.

                        Right next to this building, to the north, is a small 
                        gray building (this is also an Empire Site - 
                        explained later). Instead of taking the road curve, 
                        head east and go between the two buildings then stop 
                        when you get onto the grassy area behind these 
                        buildings.

                        From here, look up and south to find the Red Balloon.

[DTN-BN6] - Location: Under a palm tree at the southeast side of Schuman 
                      Health Care Center.
            Map: (B-3).
            Directions: Go through the Helipad access door in the courtyard 
                        of the Hospital to gain access to the roof. Then go 
                        around to the southeast side of the Hospital roof to 
                        get to the tree.

[DTN-BN7] - Location: Under the overhang of a large building.
            Map: (B-3).
            Directions: Head to the Downtown Ammu-Nation. From here, head 
                        east.

                        As you continue forward then look on the right side 
                        of the road to find a pair of long teal awnings. When 
                        you find them and get to the end of them, stop.

                        Look north across the street to find a large building 
                        with black windows. Then look up a little bit to find 
                        the Red Balloon under the overhang of this building.

            Map: (B-4).
            Directions: From Red Balloon [DTN-BN8], head back to the road and 
                        turn right. Go through the road curve going south and 
                        stop just before you finish it.

                        Then look up to find the Kronos Twatch billboard and 
                        the Red Balloon underneath.

[DTN-BN10] - Location: Under the corner overhang for a large white building.
             Map: (B-4).
             Directions: Head to the Downtown Ammu-Nation and head east from

             Directions: Use a car that sits low and drive to the metal 
                         detector. Then get on the car and jump over the 
                         railing so you can bring your weapons inside.

                         Another option, thanks to readers Adam Gilligan and 
                         Nathan Spenneberg, is to go inside and beat up a 
                         security guard for a gun (because you are stripped 
                         of your weapons when you enter the terminal) so you 
                         can acquire the balloon.

                         A third option, courtesy of Robert Sassoon, is, if 
                         you have a Laser Sniper or Sniper Rifle, then stand 
                         outside the east entrance and snipe the Balloon from 
                         the sidewalk (oddly enough this won't work with your 
                         other weapons).

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

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. Most of these are
done on land but there are a few that are done on water.

The Vehicle listing for each Jump will tell you which vehicle to use. Either
it is going to be the PCJ-600 or Sanchez motorbike while on land or a Jetski
while in the water.

Some of these Jumps require that you get a high rate of speed. When on land,
the best way to get it is to lean down on the PCJ-600. This is achieved by
gently pushing the Left Analog Stick forward so that you go down just a
little on the vehicle.

If you push up too much then you will stand up so it takes a little practice
to get it right. But it will make a big difference in speed and will reduce
frustrations in trying to get certain Jumps.

There are a total of thirty six Unique Stunt Jumps in the game and twenty two
of them can be done on Vice City Mainland and Starfish Island. However, six
of these Jumps are exclusive to the PS2 version of Vice City Stories and are
noted.

Your reward for finishing Unique Stunt Jumps is $250 for each one completed
and you will get a $10,000 bonus for successfully completing all thirty six
Jumps.

Also refer to the Main Map to see which Unique Stunt Jumps you have done.

             Heading: West to East and land on The Dirtbike Track.
             Map: (A-3).
             Vehicle: PCJ-600.
             Notes: This one is a little tough due to the fact you have to go 
                    around traffic and angle yourself with the Jump plus get 
                    a good rate of speed to do it.

[DTN-J2] - A set of stairs
           ***************
             Location: Just south of the road loop in front of Hyman Memorial 
                       Stadium.
             Heading: North to South and clear the water and the fence.
             Map: (B-2).
             Vehicle: PCJ-600.
             Notes: You need to tap D-Pad up to get enough speed to make the 
                    Jump. You also need to get around the traffic too.

[DTN-J3] - A metal ramp
           ************
             Location: In an enclosed area south of Hyman Memorial Stadium.
             Directions: At the south end of the road loop in front of Hyman 
                         Memorial Stadium is an asphalt path leading south. 
                         Go south along this path and it will lead you into 
                         an enclosed area where you will find a steep ramp.
             Heading: North to South.
             Map: (B-2).
             Vehicle: PCJ-600.
             Notes: This one is quite hard and you need to get at least 65 to 
                    70 Meters to get credit for the Jump.

[DTN-J4] - A metal ramp
           ************
             Location: On the roof of the King Knuts (Downtown).
             Directions: You need to use the ramp for Jump [DTN-J3] to land 
                         on the building south of the Jump to get access to 
                         Jump [DTN-J4].
             Heading: West to East.
             Map: (B-2).
             Vehicle: PCJ-600.
             Notes: Not too hard. You can smack into the building and still 
                    get credit for the Jump.

[DTN-J5] - A large dirt mound
           ******************
             Location: At the southwest side of Downtown north of The 
                       Compound Safehouse.
             Directions: From Jump [DTN-J3], head south along the grass and 
                         you will find the large dirt mound.
             Heading: North to South.
             Map: (C-2).
             Vehicle: PCJ-600.
             Notes: You need to get a lot of speed to make this Jump. You 
                    need to lean down extensively to do this. You need to 
                    fully clear the wall and land on your wheels to get 
                    credit for the Jump.

[DTN-J6] - A set of stairs
           ***************
             Location: At the northeast corner of the large gray building 
                       next door south of North Bridge (West).
             Heading: South to North and jump completely over the bridge.
             Map: (B-4).
             Vehicle: PCJ-600.
             Notes: You should lean down as you approach to get the speed
                    necessary to make the Jump.

[DTN-J7] - A wooden ramp
           *************
             Location: On top of the three large pipes at the north side of 
                       the Moist Palms Hotel Construction Site.
             Heading: Southwest to Northeast and clear the construction 
                      building and the fence then land on the grass.
             Map: (C-3).
             Vehicle: PCJ-600.
             Notes: You need to start at the south end of the site to get 
                    enough speed for the Jump. When you align yourself to the
                    ramp then start leaning down.

[DTN-J8] - A wooden ramp
           *************
             Location: Inside the Moist Palms Hotel itself.
             Directions: You need to climb the scaffolding at the west side

             Map: (C-3).
             Vehicle: PCJ-600.
             Notes: Pretty easy to do since there is a very short distance 
                    between the wall and the ramp and nothing to get in the
                    way.

             Map: (D-2).
             Vehicle: PCJ-600.
             Notes: This one is tough to do. You don't have a lot of approach 
                    space and you must lean down the entire way.

              Map: (F-2).
              Vehicle: PCJ-600.
              **NOTE: This is a [*PS2 Exclusive*] Unique Stunt Jump.

                      Although you have to go through alleys, you can still 
                      get enough approach speed to make the Jump.

[LTV-J13] - A set of stairs
            ***************
              Location: At the south end of Benny's Restaurant.
              Directions: Benny's Restaurant is the long boat moored north of 
                          the South Bridge.
              Heading: West to East and land in the water without touching 
                       the boat.
              Map: (F-3).
              Vehicle: Sanchez.
              Notes: You need to start in the parking lot across the main 
                     road (Bayshore Avenue) west of the stairs.

                     You may want to consider doing the Beach Patrol 
                     side-mission and gain the Infinite Swimming Stamina 
                     Feature before doing this Jump.

              Vehicle: PCJ-600.
              Notes: Not too hard. You need to land on the building across 
                     the street to get credit for the Jump, although if you 
                     get too much speed, then you can land in the Civil Asset

                     and lean down the whole way when doing your approach.

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

 /=========================================================================\
0===========================================================================0
| II.13. Ambulance Mission                                           [AMBM] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

When you go near either Schuman Health Care Center (Downtown), West Haven
Community Healthcare Center (Little Havana), Shady Palms Hospital (Vice
Point), or Ocean View Hospital (Ocean Beach) then you should find an
Ambulance.

Climb into the Ambulance and press Activate Vehicle Mission to begin the
mission. When you start, you have to drive around the city to pick up
patients and take them to a nearby hospital.

There are fifteen 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.

Try to go for the furthest patient first and work back to the hospital. 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, 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. Use your Siren as this causes the cars to either stop or
turn away from you thus making it easier to evade them.

Succeeding in this mission will give you the Infinite Run Feature. However,
this does *NOT* translate into Infinite Stamina for swimming. That has to be
done later (by doing the "Beach Patrol" side-mission).

Like most of the other vehicle based missions in VCS, you will be given
checkpoints at Level 5 and Level 10.

Another nice feature in the VCS version of the Ambulance Mission is that you
can leave your Ambulance to find another one in case you trashed up yours too
much. However, this is only if you have no patients otherwise you will be
told to return to the Ambulance you are currently using.

 /=========================================================================\
0===========================================================================0
| II.14. Firetruck Mission                                           [FGMS] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

At the Downtown Fire Station there is a Firetruck parked at the front. If you
enter the Firetruck and press the R3 Button then you will activate the
Firetruck Mission.

You then have to go from place to place, with a time limit, extinguishing
vehicle fires with the water cannon by using the Circle Button.

On Level 1 you have to put out a single car fire. On Level 2 you have to put
out the car fire but, when you do that, then a person will exit and he will
be on fire and you will have to put him out. The person will then try to run
away so you have to go and chase him (but thankfully he won't run too far).

As you progress through the levels then more cars, with more people, will be
added for a maximum of three cars.

When holding down the Attack button then use the Right Analog Stick to aim
the Water Cannon to help put out the fires so you can advance quickly.

The faster you put out fires, the more time you can accumulate which makes it
easier to get to your next destination on the next level. In addition, you
get five seconds for putting out a car fire and ten seconds for putting out a
person.

But, if you don't save a person in time, then they will die and you will lose
fifteen seconds. If you manage to complete a level without losing anybody
then you will gain a Perfect Bonus of twenty seconds.

You need to complete 15 Levels in order to succeed in this mission.
Succeeding in this mission will give you the Fireproof Feature.

This will make you fireproof making it easier to use Molotovs since you don't
have to worry about making mistakes, like throwing them too close to
yourself, when using them.

Like most of the other vehicle based missions in VCS, you will be given
checkpoints at Level 5 and Level 10.

 /=========================================================================\
0===========================================================================0
| II.15. Vigilante Mission                                           [VGLM] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

When you enter a Police Vehicle and press the R3 Button then you will
activate the Vigilante Mission.

You start out at five minutes and will be prompted to chase and destroy a
selected target. You have to kill all the criminals in the level before
moving onto the next one.

You will restart at five minutes when you go to the next level. The further
you progress through the mission, the more criminals you have to eliminate.

Care must be taken to keep your Wanted Ratings to a minimum since 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.

At this point in the game the best vehicle to use is the VCPD Wintergreen
which will allow you to shoot forward while riding (get about 3,000 rounds of
Micro-SMG ammo before doing the Vigilante Mission). This will allow you to
blow up the criminal cars easier (for the most part).

When you start the mission, there are three scenarios that you will encounter
while doing it (from easiest to hardest):

  >>The criminals will be on foot. Go to where they are at but stay at a 
    distance.

    If you are far enough away then they will stand still instead of 
    approaching you. Use a Sniper Rifle and pick them off one by one.

    Take your time when killing them as it will keep your Wanted Rating from
    getting too high.

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

  >>The criminals will be on motorcycles. The criminals tend to wield 
    powerful machine guns and can do some damage to your Police Vehicle.

    However, if you use a VCPD Wintergreen, then you can go up behind them 
    and easily shoot them out to move to the next level.

  >>The criminals will be in cars. Not surprisingly, being the hardest, this 
    is also the scenario that will appear the most often.

    The criminals have an extremely annoying habit of shooting out your tires 
    constantly from long range and can really mess up your vehicle at close 
    range. You'll spend most of your time searching for new Police Vehicles 
    since you can't use them in a Pay 'N' Spray.

    This, of course, means little time to pursue and destroy the criminals 
    which leads to failure. Again and again.....

If you are constantly having trouble passing this mission then it's okay to
hold off until the mission "Money for Nothing" (Bryan Forbes). It is during
this mission that you can acquire a Rhino before you open up Vice City Beach
(the East Side) and use it in the Vigilante Mission. This will make the
mission much easier.

You need to complete 15 Levels in order to succeed in this side-mission.
Succeeding in this mission will increase your maximum Armor which is
represented with a "+" by your Armor Bar.

Like most of the other vehicle based missions in VCS, you will be given
checkpoints at Level 5 and Level 10. And you'll need them too as the
criminals can get really nasty in the later levels.

If you've managed to get through the mission at this point in the game, and
increase your maximum Body Armor (as well as acquire the Fireproof Feature),
then it might be a good idea to start doing.....

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 two minutes and with a given weapon with unlimited ammo (that
you can't switch out of during the duration of the Rampage).

There are a total of thirty five Rampages in the game and eighteen of them
can be done on Vice City Mainland and Starfish Island. However, five of these
Rampages are exclusive to the PS2 version of Vice City Stories and are noted.

Your reward for finishing Rampages will start at $50 and increase by $50 for
each one completed. You will get $3,500 for completing the last Rampage.

One interesting difference between the Rampages in Vice City Stories and in
previous GTAs is the fact that when you successfully complete a Rampage in
VCS it doesn't disappear. It remains but changes into a darker color.

In VCS you can actually do the Rampages as many times as you like for
additional cash and amusement.

Also refer to the Main Map to see which Rampages you have done. Hold down the
X Button while at the Main Map to bring up Show Discovered Extras then use
D-Pad to switch to Rampages.

[DTN-R1] - Drive-By and Eliminate 20 Bikers [Micro-SMG]
           ********************************************
             Location: Under a set of stairs.
             Directions: From the four-way intersection near the northeast 
                         corner of The Mendez Building, go north along the 
                         main road. When you get to the curve that turns 
                         east then veer northwest to enter an enclosed area.

                         There is a set of stairs in a corner of this area 
                         where you will find Rampage underneath.
             Map: (A-2).
             Notes: Bring a motorcycle to this Rampage. Shoot groups of 
                    Bikers in front of you while on the motorcycle to 
                    complete the Rampage.

[DTN-R2] - Take Out 20 Bikers [Mac-10]
           ***************************
             Location: In a corner at the southwest part of The Dirtbike 
                       Track.
             Map: (A-3).
             Notes: This one's a bit tricky. The Mac-10 is a slow firing weak 
                    weapon.

                    Another problem is that lots of Bikers can spawn behind 
                    you while you are killing the ones in front of you. Even 
                    though they use Baseball Bats and Pistols the Bikers can 
                    still be a problem.

                    The best thing to do is to go into the street, kill a 
                    small group to get things started and head west. When you 
                    get to the grass again then head northwest and into the 
                    corner.

                    That way they can't come up behind you. Then target the 
                    ones with Pistols first then the ones with Bats.

                    You should have enough victims to complete the Rampage. 

                    **NOTE: This Rampage is in a different location in the 
                            PSP version (in the parking lot east of the 
                            Downtown Ammu-Nation).

[DTN-R3] - Decimate 25 Bikers [Grenades]
           *****************************
             Location: By the sign for Hyman Memorial Stadium.
             Map: (A-2).
             Notes: Drop Grenades at the feet of groups. When they start 
                    firing then run away and throw from a distance.

[DTN-R4] - Drive-By and Execute 25 Bikers [Micro-SMG]
           ******************************************
             Location: At the top of the stairs near the Downtown 
                       Ammu-Nation.
             Directions: Head to the Downtown Ammu-Nation. The Ammu-Nation is 
                         at the north side of a three-way intersection. The 
                         set of stairs can be found at the southeast corner 
                         of this intersection.

                         This set of stairs will become a Unique Stunt jump 
                         in "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City".
             Map: (B-3).
             Notes: Bring a motorcycle to this Rampage. Shoot groups of 
                    Bikers in front of you while on the motorcycle to 
                    complete the Rampage.

[DTN-R5] - Take Out 25 Bikers [Sniper Rifle]
           *********************************
             Location: On a ledge at the north part of the building next door  
                       north of the VCN Building.
             Directions: Go to the roof of the VCN Building through the front 
                         entrance and head to the east end of the roof then 
                         do a running jump north to land on the building or 
                         use a helicopter.
             Map: (B-4).
             Notes: Reader MasterAnthony05 suggested using a motorcycle to go 
                    to the rooftop of the VCN building (you can take it with 
                    you when you go to the roof) then jump down to activate 
                    the Rampage and jump down again to the overhang above the 
                    entrance to pick off the Bikers.

                    But I found something better. After activating the 
                    Rampage and getting back on the bike then I went back 
                    down to ground level and quickly zipped to the bridge 
                    support pillar under North Bridge (West).

                    From here, I start picking off the Bikers. Although I was 
                    on ground level and near the pillar, I was far enough 
                    away from the sidewalk to stay out of their immediate 
                    range.

                    Any Bikers that started shooting at me I simply adjusted 
                    my aim and picked those off before they can get close 
                    enough to seriously hurt me.

                    Even better was the fact that, when the Ambulance came to 
                    heal those I shot, then they not only revived them (so I 
                    could shoot them again) but they were also un-armed thus 
                    making them even easier pickings.

                    I still lost some armor but this method made it easier to 
                    quickly, and successfully, complete this Rampage.

[DTN-R6] - Kill 25 Bikers [Shotgun]
           ************************
             Location: On top of the Downtown King Knuts.
             Directions: Use either a helicopter to land on the roof or do 
                         Jump [DTN-J3] to access.
             Map: (B-2).
             Notes: Get to the edge of the roof. Target a Biker and hold down 
                    the fire button.

                    When he is dead then use the L2 and R2 Buttons to switch 
                    targets. Continue until the Rampage is completed. Since 
                    you are on the roof, you will be difficult to hit.

[DTN-R7] - Trash 10 Vehicles [Molotovs]
           ****************************
             Location: At the very northwest corner of the roof of the 
                       Downtown Police Station.
             Map: (C-3).
             Notes: It is highly recommended that you do the Firetruck 
                    Mission to get the Fireproof Feature before you do 
                    this Rampage.

                    To start, head down the stairs and toss Molotovs at the 
                    Enforcer and at the vehicle you came here with. Don't get 
                    close to the cars.

                    They will explode quickly and can seriously hurt you. Go 
                    around the Police Station area and destroy the other 
                    parked Police vehicles then destroy any other cars nearby 
                    to complete the Rampage.

[DTN-R8] - Exterminate 25 Bikers [AK-47]
           *****************************
             Location: Under the ramp leading up to the helipad on top of the 
                       Downtown Police Station.
             Map: (C-3).
             Notes: Head down to street level to find Bikers. Use the L2 and 
                    R2 Buttons to quickly switch targets. The power and speed
                    of the AK-47 will allow you to get through this Rampage
                    quickly.

[DTN-R9] - Terminate 25 Bikers [AK-47]
           ***************************
             Location: Inside a small shack on top of a roof.
             Directions: Head to The Greasy Chopper. Just east of the place 
                         is the road curve going north.

                         Just inside of this road curve is a set of stairs 
                         that leads to the roof of the nearby building. After 
                         reaching the top of the stairs then you should see 
                         the small shack where you will find the Rampage.

                         This small shack is also The Skumhole Shack, an 
                         asset property in "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City".
             Map: (C-3).
             Notes: Head down to street level to find Bikers. Use the L2 and 
                    R2 Buttons to quickly switch targets. The power and speed
                    of the AK-47 will allow you to get through this Rampage
                    quickly.

[DTN-R10] - Crush 15 Bikers [Any Vehicle]
            *****************************
              Location: In a pipe at the north part of the Moist Palms Hotel 
                        Construction Site.
              Map: (C-3).
              Notes: Get a good solid vehicle. Then go onto the main road 
                     (Bayshore Avenue) to claim your victims.

[LHI-R11] - Incinerate 10 Vehicles [Molotovs]
            *********************************
              Location: In an alley between two storefronts with teal 
                        awnings.
              Directions: From the three-way intersection next to Kaufman 
                          Cabs, head east and stop at the next three-way 
                          intersection. Just northeast from this 
                          intersection, and on the outside of the gentle road 
                          curve going east, is a storefront with red and 
                          teal awnings.

                          In the center of the teal awning section of the 
                          storefront is a narrow alley where you will find 
                          the Rampage.
              Map: (D-3).
              Notes: It is highly recommended that you do the Firetruck 
                     Mission to get the Fireproof Feature before you do 
                     this Rampage.

                     To start, blow up the car parked across the street south 
                     of you. Plenty of cars will generate which will give you 
                     ample targets to complete this Rampage. Especially if 
                     you can create a chain reaction which will make this 
                     even quicker.

[LHI-R12] - Erase 25 Cholos [Micro-SMG]
            ***************************
              Location: At the east end of a rooftop just east of The 
                        Junkyard entrance.
              Directions: Go west along the road that leads to the City 
                          Scrap. Just before you get to the entrance then you 
                          should see a roadway off to your left.

                          Turn left onto this roadway and you should see a 
                          short railroad bridge. But, to your left, you 
                          should see a ramp that leads up to a rooftop.

                          Go up onto this rooftop and to the east side to 
                          find the Rampage.
              Map: (D-2).
              Notes: Get to the edge of the roof. Target a Cholo and hold 
                     down the fire button.

                     When he is dead then use the L2 and R2 Buttons to switch 
                     targets. Continue until the Rampage is completed. Since 
                     you are on the roof, you will be difficult to hit.

[LTV-R13] - Gun Down 25 Cholos [Scorpion]
            *****************************
              Location: On the stairs for a house.
              Directions: From the three-way intersection at the southeast 
                          corner of The Big Package Storage Co., head south 
                          and turn right at the next three-way intersection 
                          then take the road curve going south. Just before 
                          you get near the next road curve going east then 
                          you should see a house to your right.

                          The Rampage is on top of the stairs of this house.
              Map: (E-2).
              Notes: Go into the alley to the south of this house and pick 
                     them off from there.

[LTV-R14] - Kill 25 Cholos [Sniper Rifle]
            *****************************
              Location: On the rooftop of a building next door east of 
                        Robina's Cafe.
              Directions: Head to the three-way intersection next to Final 
                          Build Construction. At the south side of this 
                          intersection is an alley.

                          Go south into this alley then angle west to find an 
                          enclosed area with a set of stairs which will lead 
                          you to the rooftop. When you get to the top of the 
                          stairs then you should see to the north a lower 
                          rooftop area with another set of stairs.

                          Go down to the lower rooftop and climb the next set 
                          of stairs to get to the next rooftop where you will 
                          find the Rampage.
              Map: (E-2).
              Notes: Get to the edge of the lower rooftop. Then pick off the 
                     Cholos from there.

[LTV-R15] - Kill 40 Cholos [Stubby Shotgun]
            *******************************
              Location: On top of Guano's Cafe.
              Directions: Head to the Miatma Theater and head south along the 
                          road. Go through the next three-way intersection 
                          and you should see and open area with a bunch of 
                          palm trees to your right.

                          Go southwest through this open area and to the 
                          southwest corner where you will find a ramp. Go to 
                          the top of this ramp and turn left to find the 
                          Rampage.
              Map: (E-2).
              **NOTE: This is a [*PS2 Exclusive*] Rampage.

                      This weapon has a very short range so you have no 
                      choice but to drop down and wade into groups of Cholos. 
                      However, it is very powerful up close so you can take 
                      down an entire group with one shot.

                      This will still take awhile because of the slow reload. 
                      However, this is still not a hard Rampage to do.

                     The best thing to do is to target one from behind and 
                     kill him. While still targeting the dead Cholo, you can 
                     still swing and hit nearby Cholos.

Whenever you enter a Taxi, regardless of whether you jack one or take a
parked one, then you have the option of doing the Taxi Mission by pressing
the R3 Button. The mission comprises of picking up fares and driving them to
their destination a la Sega's "Crazy Taxi".

The interesting thing about the Taxi Mission in Vice City Stories, as
compared to the Taxi Missions in previous GTAs, is that there is more than
just picking up and dropping off passengers this time.

In addition to the usual pick up and drop off scenario there are two
additional ones:

  >>Pick up then drop off the fare at a store so they can shop then drop them 
    off at another destination.

  >>Pick up then drop off the fare at a store so they can rob it then take 
    them to another destination with a 2-Star Wanted Rating.

This definitely makes things more interesting and less boring than the Taxi
Mission on the other GTAs

But changing up the scenarios isn't the only thing that that's different.
Rockstar also changed the requirements for completing the mission.

You can successfully complete the mission by either completing fifty fares
total or making $5,000 from the fares you picked up. This means that the more
fares you pick up in one run (which also means that you make more money), the
sooner you can complete the mission.

For this guide I completed the Taxi Mission after my 27th straight fare.

After you successfully complete the Taxi Mission, regardless of how, then you
will earn the Boost Jump for all Taxis.

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

At the north part of Downtown there is a place called The Dirtbike Track.
Here you can perform time trials with three different vehicles parked in
three of the corners of the track area.

Each vehicle has its own set of courses and you must beat the time for one
course before you can progress to the next one. If you fail to beat a target
time then you can do the course over until you do. It may take a few tries on
some of the courses but they are still not too hard to complete.

You get $100 for each course completed and $2,500 for completing all courses
for all three vehicles.

A general rule of thumb when performing these courses, regardless of vehicle,
is to try to cut across the grass to save time when possible. It is also
recommended that you complete the Ambulance Mission to gain the Infinite Run
Feature before doing the BMX Time Trials.

Listed below are the three Time Trials, their courses and target times for
each one:

0====================0
| Sanchez Time Trials \
0=====================================================>

The Sanchez Time Trials are activated when you get onto the Sanchez at the
southwest corner of the Track.

  >>Course 1 - 1:55.
  >>Course 2 - 1:35.
  >>Course 3 - 2:00.
  >>Course 4 - 1:20.
  >>Course 5 - 1:40.
  >>Course 6 - 2:25.
  >>Course 7 - 2:10.
  >>Course 8 - 2:05.
  >>Course 9 - 2:10.
  >>Course 10 - 2:55.
  >>Course 11 - 3:00.
  >>Course 12 - 2:55.

0======================0
| Quad Bike Time Trials \
0=====================================================>

The Quad Bike Time Trials are activated when you get onto the Quad at the
southeast corner of the Track.

  >>Course 1 - 1:25.
  >>Course 2 - 1:35.
  >>Course 3 - 1:20.
  >>Course 4 - 1:25.

0================0
| BMX Time Trials \
0=====================================================>

The BMX Time Trials are activated when you get onto the BMX at the northeast
corner of the Track.

  >>Course 1 - 1:25.
  >>Course 2 - 1:30.
  >>Course 3 - 1:20.
  >>Course 4 - 1:35.
  >>Course 5 - 1:45.

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

Behind the Downtown Police Station, near the Enforcer, you will find a parked
PCJ-600. Climbing onto it will trigger the "Playground on the Town"
Checkpoint Race. This is one of four "Playground" Checkpoint Races found
within Vice City Stories.

You have 1:35 to collect all of the Checkpoints and the timer starts when you
pick up the first one. Climb up to the helipad area and then to the roof.

When you get on the roof then go left to get the Checkpoint and turn north
and follow the Checkpoints then jump to the next building. Once on the next
building then grab the four Checkpoints there, jump to the next building,
grab the one there, jump to the next building, get the one there, and go to
ground level.

Weave between the buildings and grab all the Checkpoints while making your
way to the Rockstar Building. Climb up the stairs, follow the Checkpoints
and, when you turn the left corner, then gun it to make the ramp and jump
across the street to claim the last checkpoint near the small shack (The
Skumhole Shack).

Successful completion of this race will earn you $500. You can do this race
again but you will get no money and you must beat your best time to win.

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

Leaning against the wall just south of the 101 Bayshore Avenue Safehouse in
Viceport you will find a parked PCJ-600. Climbing onto it will trigger the
"Playground on the Dock" Checkpoint Race.

You have 1:15 to collect all of the Checkpoints and the timer starts when you
pick up the first one. Start with the Checkpoints in the alley.

Then get the ones on the rooftop of the garages. From there, go south and get
the ones leading to the grass by the main road (Bayshore Avenue).

You need to get good speed to make the ramp over the street and get the two
Checkpoints there. Get on the walkway onto Bennie's Restaurant. Go right and
around the ship to get all the Checkpoints on the lower level.

Then go to the upper level to claim the remaining Checkpoints.

Successful completion of this race will earn you $500. You can do this race
again but you will get no money and you must beat your best time to win.

| II.22. "Rush!" [*PS2 Exclusive*]                                   [RUSH] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

On the south side of Viceport, and across the street from the southwest side
of the Vice City Port Authority Main Building, is a Linerunner. Getting
inside the vehicle triggers the "Rush!" side-mission.

In this side-mission, you need to cause $1,700 of damage in three minutes.
This is done by ramming the cars on the road. You need to spin them out,
knock them around, destroy them, etc. in order to get the points needed to
succeed.

This is a partial list of what you get for doing certain things to cars:

  >>$10 for each spin of a car.
  >>$50 for bike dismount.
  >>$50 for knocking cars high into air.
  >>$150 for flipping car.
  >>$250 for car sunk (knocking it into the water).
  >>$300 for destroying car.

You can also hit several cars at once for a multiplier (but I haven't done
that too often).

The Linerunner has a nasty habit of going onto two wheels when trying to hit
cars or coming to a stop when hitting a car.

But there is a cheap way to get more than enough points to succeed.

Get a car, not a motorcycle, and head toward the Vice City Port Authority
Main Building. At the southwest corner is a Packer. Park close but not too
close to the Packer.

Next, go to the street (and where you can see the Linerunner) and look for
cars. Then, using a Micro-SMG, shoot at a car going east or west to get it to
stop then shoot a car going in the opposite lane to get it to stop.

This will cause the traffic to back up. Shoot at some of the backed up cars
to get the drivers to flee.

Now carefully shoot at each backed up car until it is really smoking (and
very close to destruction). Then do the same to the car you drove up in and
to the parked Packer.

After that then head to the Linerunner and start the mini-game. Now all you
have to do is smack into the damaged cars and destroy them getting $300 for
each vehicle destroyed.

Depending on how many cars you stack up you may get more than $2,000 worth of
destruction without leaving the Vice City Port Authority Main Building area.
And with plenty of time to do more chaos.

Upon successful completion you will get $1,000. You can do the side-mission
again you will get $250 for each successful completion.

At this point I have done all I can do on Vice City Mainland before starting
the Main Story Missions. But there is something else that can be done.....

| II.23. The Yankee Method                                           [YNKM] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

As noted earlier, the programmers of Vice City Stories employed forcefields
and Wave Generators to keep you confined to Vice City Mainland until after
successful completion of the mission "From Zero to Hero" (Lance Vance).

However, as with every other GTA game since "Grand Theft Auto III", there is
always a way to get around these obstacles to get to the other side early and
do certain things before you are supposed to.

And Vice City Stories is no different.

Getting to Vice City Beach (the East Side) early is actually pretty easy.
Somebody else came up with this method so I can't take full credit for this
(at this time I don't know who).

What you need to do is go to Viceport. On the east side of Viceport is the
large moored ship. Southwest of that ship is a parked Yankee truck. Get into
the Yankee and head for Starfish Island.

When you get to Starfish Island then head to The Mansion. Turn onto the
property and head east toward Island Bridge (East).

As you get near the bridge then stop and turn the truck around. Then back up
toward the water's edge while scraping the right side of the truck with the
wall.

What you want to do is have the back wheels close, but not too close, to the
water's edge. When you have the back wheels where they should be then get out
of the truck.

Because the back wheels are on an incline then the truck will lean to the
left when you exit. If the back wheels are too close to the edge then the
leaning motion will cause the truck to fall into the water.

When the truck leans down then you need to climb it by jumping onto the hood
then onto the top of the Yankee. After you get on top of the Yankee then head
to the back end of the truck.

Rotate the camera to get a good look at the black metal railing on top of the
wall. You will notice that the railing also goes partway onto the bridge.

You will also see that it looks like you can just jump over the railing and
onto the bridge. But there is a forcefield that sits atop the black railing
that prevents you from doing just that.

However, if you rotate the camera just right, then you can see the railing
isn't totally straight. Right where the bridge meets the land the railing
juts toward the south a tiny bit then continues east along the bridge.

When you find this jut then jump to the right of it and you will land on the
bridge. Then you can continue to Vice City Beach and do whatever you want.

What happened is that the programmers didn't extend the forcefield far enough
and it ends where the jut is. The back end of the Yankee truck extends just
far enough from the back wheels so you can go beyond the end of the
forcefield and is high enough so you can jump over the railing and onto the
bridge.

When you are on Vice City Beach early then you can do the following:

  >>Pop fifty two Red Balloons.
  >>Fourteen Unique Stunt Jumps.
  >>Seventeen Rampages.
  >>Do the "Caddy Daddy" [*PS2 Exclusive*] checkpoint side-mission.
  >>Do the "Playground at the Point" checkpoint side-mission.
  >>Do the "Playground on the Park" [*PS2 Exclusive*] checkpoint 
    side-mission.

You can also do the four Vice City Beach "Turismo" races early when you
activate "Turismo" later in the game.

With this exploit you can get up to 49% Completion, do all Jumps, do all
Rampages, get all 99 Red Balloons, and have some of the side-missions done
prior to doing the Main Story Missions.

And, of course, unlock all Weapon Icons for your Safehouses (although I
should note that you don't get all the Weapon Icons for the Barracks at Fort
Baxter - the last four don't show up).

  You need to go to Viceport and meet Phil Cassidy. You'll meet him inside
  Phil's Depot at the southeast part of Viceport. After being introduced to
  Phil then you need to get into his truck so you can get his money.

  It is at Old Phil's Place (101 Bayshore Avenue) at the northeast side of
  Viceport. However, Phil informs you that the Cholos, Mexican gang-bangers,
  have taken over the place. The money is under the floorboards and you need
  to clear the place of Cholos before you can access it.

  Use a sub-machine gun to get rid of the outside gang-bangers. Then head 
  inside and get rid of the two remaining Cholos to get at the money.

  From there, get one of the two Cholo vehicles and speed off to Fort Baxter
  to successfully complete the mission.

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

When you get back to Phil's Place then you will see a open door at one of the
buildings there. This is Phil's Shooting Range. Go inside and step into the
pink circle to begin this mini-game.

There are five levels to go through. You need to earn points by shooting
enemy targets in order to progress to the next level.

If you shoot a friendly target then you will incur a 200 point penalty. Each
round has a different weapon and limited ammo. If you do not succeed in any
of the levels then you will fail the mini-game and you must start from
scratch when you try again.

Complete all five rounds to get discount prices (25% off) at all Ammu-Nations
plus Stonewall J's (opened later in the game).

For your first time completion you will get $2,500. You will get $1,000 for
each additional time you beat this mini-game.

You will also get $500 for establishing or beating the high score, $500 for
beating or establishing the record accuracy, $500 for beating or establishing
the best round and $500 for beating or establishing the best time.

Below is the breakdown of the five rounds:

0=================0
| Round 1 - Pistol \
0=====================================>

  Points Needed: 1,000.
  Rounds: 100.
  Notes: Not too hard. Only a few friendlies to worry about. Just focus on 
         destroying as many targets as you can.

0====================0
| Round 2 - Micro-SMG \
0=====================================>

  Points Needed: 1,500.
  Rounds: 150.
  Notes: Use one to two shots per target to conserve ammo. A few more 
         friendlies this time. Take your time and carefully pick through the
         friendlies to get your targets.

0==================0
| Round 3 - Shotgun \
0=====================================>

  Points Needed: 2,000.
  Rounds: 100.
  Notes: The wide spread of this weapon makes it easy to destroy your 
         targets. Unfortunately, it also makes it easy to hit friendlies
         which there are plenty of in this round.

         Again, take your time and aim carefully before firing. It's easy to 
         destroy many friendlies in one shot which can quickly lead to 
         failure.

0========================0
| Round 4 - Assault Rifle \
0=====================================>

  Points Needed: 2,000.
  Rounds: 120.
  Notes: The targets are constantly moving in this round. So you may want to 
         fire a short burst at each target as it presents itself individually
         and use single shots when having to pick through friendlies to
         acquire targets.

0=======================0
| Round 5 - Sniper Rifle \
0=====================================>

  Points Needed: 2,500.
  Rounds: 80.
  Notes: Only zoom in a little bit so you can still see the entire range. 
         Your bullets can go through multiple targets so, when a target is in
         front of a friendly, then aim at the base of the target before 
         shooting otherwise you may destroy both of them and lose 100 points.

         Later on in the level you will have to shoot moving targets through
         friendlies. Try to aim between friendlies and when the two targets
         cross you can get them both with one shot.

With that done, let's head back to the Main Story.....

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  First, go to Phil's Old Place. Phil then gives Vic a car to use.

  Next, you have to look for Mary around Viceport. Pull up to the first girl
  you see. She remarks that Mary is on Starfish Island at a party. You can
  then give this girl a lift to the party and find Mary.

  When you get to the party then you hook up with Mary. However, the party 
  guests don't want her to leave so they attack you and Mary.

  Just use the Pistol on the attackers. When you are done with the two party 
  guests then take Mary back to Fort Baxter.

  When you get back to Fort Baxter then you find that you were set up by 
  Martinez and you will be thrown out of the Army (and change into the 
  Casuals Outfit). Any attempt to re-enter Fort Baxter will result in the 
  soldiers there shooting you (until you earn the Soldier Outfit late in the 
  game). You will also have your weapons stripped from you.

  After exiting Fort Baxter then Phil pages you to go back to Old Phil's 
  Place. When you get there then you will successfully complete the mission.

| Reward \
0=======================>

  No money but you now have the 101 Bayshore Avenue Safehouse.

  There will also be a Purchase Icon in front of the Safehouse:

    >>Bulletproof Sanchez - $4,000.

  You also have the use of a garage for storing vehicles and your Weapon
  Icons will appear in the alley behind the Safehouse.

  Inside you will find a Health Icon, an Outfit Icon (to change clothes), and
  your Game Save Icon.

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Head to the Little Havana Police Station to look for Cholo which is who
  Phil wants to do some drive-bys on.

  When you get to the Police Station then you find that there are no Cholos 
  but Phil decides to try another place. Head to the nearby Hospital.

  There you will find a Cholo. He will then take off in a car.

  You need to drive close to the Cholo car so Phil can perform a drive-by.
  After that car is taken down then head on over to a Pay 'N' Spray to fix up 
  the truck.

  Then take Phil back to his place to successfully complete the mission.

  $200.

  You'll also get a page from Phil concerning Marty J. Williams who is 
  looking for good guys like Vic. This will open up Marty's line of missions
  but I finish up with Phil first.....

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Get in the truck and take Phil to The Big Package Storage Co. in southwest
  Little Haiti. Then park the truck around the back.

  When Phil opens the warehouse door then the place explodes in flames. The
  Cholos have booby-trapped the place and, when Phil opened up the door, then 
  he activated it. Now you need to get as much of the Boomshine out as 
  possible before it explodes.

  Get in the Forklift and start putting the Boomshine in the truck before the
  Heat Meter maxes out. There are four pallets, all located in the southeast
  corner. In addition, the Forklift is pretty slow.

  When you get to a pallet then use the D-Pad to lift and lower the pallet.

  As you deposit a pallet in the truck then debris starts to pile up which 
  block off parts of the path leading to the Boomshine. This makes the path 
  longer and longer as you must avoid the increasing amount of debris.

  You also must take care not to place the Boomshine above the flaming debris 
  or it will explode.

  As you grab a pallet then use the D-Pad to raise the pallet and back away 
  at the same time. This will speed things up.

  Always keep moving and use the D-Pad to back up and lower the pallet at the 
  same time to keep things going when you drop a pallet into the truck.

  When you get the last pallet in the truck then the mission is successfully 
  completed.

  This also ends Phil's line of missions for the time being. Now let's start

  Then take down the two Cholos inside the store.

  After that, head to the Cholo's Store. Once inside then you need to destroy 
  stuff to scare the owner. Go into free-aim mode with the Shotgun and start 
  destroying stuff.

  When you shoot the cash registers then Cholo start entering the store. Stay 
  in free-aim mode and kill the Cholos.

  After you kill the last Cholo then the owner will agree to pay protection

  Take Marty to his lock-up just south of The Trailer Park. Now you have to 
  go and steal cars.

  Get the first one in Viceport just south of the 101 Bayshore Avenue
  Safehouse. When you grab the car then take it back to the lock-up.

  Next, go and get the second car in Little Havana. It is being driven around
  so get in front of it and then jack it. Then take it back to the lock-up.

  Finally, you need to intercept the Delivery Van which is in Little Haiti.
  When you get there then hit the two drivers with your car to prevent them 
  from interfering.

  When you grab the Van then you will be hit with a 2-Star Wanted Rating. 
  Even so, you can still make it back to the lock-up with little problem. 
  When you get there then the mission is successfully completed.

  you don't need them.

  When you get to the Van in Little Haiti then run over the two Cholos 
  guarding the Van and back up then destroy the Van using the Micro-SMG in 
  drive-by mode. Do the same to the other two Vans in Little Havana.

  After destroying the second Van then you will be chased by the Cholos but 
  you can still destroy the last Van easily. When you destroy the last Van

  Head over to Stonewall J's in Little Havana. Get the Stubby Shotgun that

  Destroy the Gang Car to start an attack on this business. This will also
  increase the gang's hate toward you.

  When you destroy the (Cholos) Gang Car then several gang members will come 
  outside to confront you. They carry a mixture of Baseball Bats and Pistols.

  Get some distance from them and then kill them with the Stubby Shotgun.
  When you kill the gang members then you need to enter the premises. After
  you enter the premises then you need to kill all the remaining gang members 
  and destroy their assets.

  When you do that then the property comes up for sale. Marty will buy this
  property so he can turn it into a Brothel.

  After Marty buys the property then the mission is successfully completed.

  Go over to the Brothel in Little Haiti. When you get there then you will be
  attacked by the Cholos. Now you need to rescue the three girls out on the
  street.

  Get into the nearby Oceanic and get the Girls. You need to get them before
  the Girls Meter gets down to zero. There are three of them: one in the
  north part of Little Haiti, one near the King Knuts (Little Haiti) and one
  just southeast of the Brothel.

  The best order to get them is: north Little Haiti, King Knuts (Little 
  Haiti), southeast of Brothel. When you rescue the first Girl then you find 
  that they are well armed so they can help protect the vehicle as you rescue 
  the other Girls.

  The Cholos will attack you as you rescue the Girls. The intensity of their
  attacks will increase when you pick up the last Girl.

  So, by saving the Girl southeast of the Brothel for last, then you can make 
  a quick run to the Brothel to successfully complete the mission and keep 
  the Cholos from doing any more damage to the car.

  This will also end Marty's line of missions. I will now go back to Phil's

  Next, get in front of the Truck to stop it so Phil can drive it back to his
  place. Now you have to protect the truck (which now has a Damage Meter).

  When the goons start coming up from behind then you need to cut them off 
  and let the gunners destroy the vehicles. You can't let Phil get too far 
  ahead though but you can keep up with Phil and destroy the goons without 
  any problems.

  When you reach Viceport then you won't be attacked anymore. After you get

  Got a nice suggestion from Zhu Hai.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Go to the lock-up in Little Haiti. You'll also notice a Phil's Truck meter
  so you know something's up. You'll also be notified along the way that the
  last of Phil's Boomshine is in the back of the truck.

  When you get there then you'll be ambushed by Martinez's goons. Get out of 
  the truck and kill them then get back in the truck. Squeeze through the 
  alley leading north back out into the street.

  Then head east, turn right onto the main road (Bayshore Avenue) and head 
  back to Phil's Place. You'll be attacked by more of Martinez's goons, in 
  fast cars and shooting at you with sub-machine guns, along the way.

  Phil will throw Molotovs at the pursuing attackers using the remaining 
  Boomshine. But, as long as you are going fast, then they should pose no 
  problems.

  If that strategy doesn't work well for you then there's this idea from Zhu 
  Hai.

  When Martinez's goons attack the first time, *DON'T* fight back. Instead, 
  back up and out into the street. Then head to Phil's Place.

  Now you cannot progress any further until those goons are dead. But, as 
  you head to Phil's Place, then you won't be attacked either.

  When you get to Phil's Place then get out of the truck and enter the nearby 
  Perennial then head back to kill the goons. After you kill the goons then 
  drive back to Phil's Place.

  Remember, you won't be attacked on the way unless you were driving the 
  truck. But the truck is now at Phil's Place safely out of the way and at 
  its intended destination.

  When you get back to Phil's Place then get back into the truck and drive 
  into the nearby destination marker.

  When you get into the destination marker, regardless of method, then the 
  mission will be successfully completed.

  Head to The Trailer Park. Here, you will participate in a two lap race
  using Quad-Bikes. This is a pretty easy race. Just keep a reasonably fast
  speed but too fast so you don't lose control.

  Finishing first in the race will successfully complete the mission.

On the east side of Sunshine Autos you will find a small building with a map
of Vice City. After completion of the mission "When Funday Comes" (Louise
Cassidy-Williams) then you open up the Turismo street races which is
activated at the map.

In the PS2 version of Vice City Stories there are nine Turismo races (as
opposed to twelve for the PSP version). There are five here at Sunshine Autos
and four at The Fairgrounds on Vice City Beach.

As noted earlier, you can use The Yankee Method to get to the other side and
do the remaining races before you can open Vice City Beach.

After you select a race then you need to get an appropriate vehicle and take
it to the starting line. Unlike in "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City", you can't
cheat by blowing up the cars at the starting line. Any racer you destroy will
automatically cancel the race.

Each race has a entry fee and a sizable reward. Also listed is the vehicle
needed and how many laps the race is.

  Go to The Trailer Park and meet Louise. When you get there then you are 
  almost run over by Marty who is taking Louise to the Brothel.

  But you are also attacked by Marty's guys. Ignore them, get into the car 
  you came with, and give chase.

  You'll also be chased by Marty's guys as well. Try to blow them up when
  they get up beside you. Stay close to Louise and Marty.

  When you get to the Brothel then you need to kill Marty. Run to a safe 
  distance and use the Micro-SMG to kill all three guys including Marty.

  After you get into the truck then Louise directs Vic to The Compound 
  Safehouse in northwest Little Haiti. When you get there then the mission is 
  successfully completed.

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Louise suggests that they get some guys together to take over the
  businesses. Go to Sunshine Autos in Little Havana to find the henchmen.

  Target them, use the R3 Button to recruit them then head over to Marty's
  Loan Shark Office near the Beachcomber Hotel. When you are dropped off then 
  you and your recruits need to get rid of Marty's goons. Use a sub-machine 
  gun or the Equalizer to get rid of them.

  After taking down the Loan Shark business then get into the nearby car and 
  take the three of you to the next site which is the Protection Racket. Run 
  over the guards while letting your recruits shoot the others.

  When you get rid of them you then need to go inside the business. Get rid
  of the two guards (easiest way is to just drop a Molotov in front of you)
  and you will complete the takeover.

  You will also be given instructions to build your business empire. This
  will successfully complete the mission.

  In addition, you will get a message to pick up someone from the Airport
  (Lance Vance). But, before we do that, let's get into the details of.....

| III.7. Empire Building (Part One)                                  [EMB1] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

After the completion of the mission "To Victor, the Spoils" (Louise
Cassidy-Williams) then you can start doing Empire Building.

Earlier in the guide I had talked about Empire Sites. Now, at this stage of
the game, they will finally appear on the in-game map.

There are a total of thirty of these Sites scattered throughout Vice City and
you need to take over all of them for 100% Completion.

At this point you own three Empire Sites. One is a Protection Racket
business, one is a Loan Shark Business and one is a Prostitution Business.

There is a lot of information so I will break things down:

 /XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\
0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0
| III.7.A. Basics                                                          \
0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

When you go inside your business then you can develop your Site by going to
the Notice Board and press the R3 Button. From here, you can change the
Business Type and size.

You can also do repairs to a damaged site. A damaged business makes less
money than a pristine business. The bigger the business and the more damage
it has sustained, the more money it will take to repair it. The minimum
required to repair a business is $500 and I have seen it as high as $1,500.

Each business also serves as a Save Point but you won't have the luxury of
having your Weapon Icons nearby.

When outside your business then you can recruit any gang members to join you
by targeting them (with melee weapon or fist) then pressing the R3 Button.

All money you make from your owned businesses will automatically be paid to
you at 16:00 (4 PM) every day.

| III.7.B. Business Types, Size, and Vehicles                              \
0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

At this point in the game there are three Business Types you can create:

  >>Prostitution.
  >>Loan Shark
  >>Protection Racket.

There are three other Business Types (Drugs, Robbery, Smuggling) but you
cannot do those until after completion of the mission "From Zero to Hero"
(Lance Vance).

In order to get the Drugs, Robbery, and Smuggling Business Types you have to
take over a business of that type from one of the rival gangs. For example,
you need to take over a Robbery business from another gang so you can make
Robbery businesses for yourself.

You could go over to Vice City Beach using The Yankee Method and take over
the Drugs, Robbery, and Smuggling Businesses but they will *NOT* count and
therefore will not show on your Business Type selection.

Therefore, it is *VERY* important to *NOT* to take over the Drugs, Robbery
and, Smuggling Businesses on Vice City Beach until *AFTER* completion of the
mission "From Zero to Hero" (Lance Vance). If you do then you will
permanently lose at least one Business Type and you cannot get 100%
Completion.

Some of these Business Types make more money than others. At this point in
the game the Prostitution business makes more money than the other two
available business types.

In addition to creating a Business Type you also need to determine the size
of the business. There are three sizes: Small-Time, Medium Venture, and
High-Roller. The bigger the business, the more money you can make.

However, the bigger the business, the more that business will be attacked by
a gang that hates you. Until you manage to take over all thirty Empire Sites
it is best to keep the businesses Small-Time to reduce the number of attacks
against you when dealing with gangs.

In addition, if you make a High-Roller Business of any Business Type, then
you will earn a new Outfit for your Safehouses:

  >>Leisure (Prostitution).
  >>Repo-Man (Loan Shark).
  >>Hired Muscle (Protection Racket).

Also, each Business Type has a different vehicle you can use parked right
outside:

  >>Polaris V8 (Prostitution).
  >>Admiral (Loan Shark).
  >>Idaho (Protection Racket).

0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

When you look at your In-Game Map then you will see all thirty Sites in Vice
City and in five different colors. Each color will correspond to a particular
faction:

0=====0
| Blue \
0=======================>

  These are your businesses.

0======0
| Green \
0=======================>

  These buildings are owned by no-one and therefore Unoccupied. It is best to 
  get these Sites as soon as they appear on the in-game map.

  Go up to the real estate sign posted outside these Sites and press the R3 
  Button to purchase.

0=======0
| Yellow \
0=======================>

  These are the Sites owned by the Cholos gang.

0====0
| Red \
0=======================>

  These are the Sites owned by the Sharks gang.

0=======0
| Purple \
0=======================>

  These are the Sites owned by the Bikers gang.

Some of these Sites may also be damaged. The red line next to the Site Icon
determines how much a Site has been damaged by gang warfare. When the red
line is empty then the Site becomes Unoccupied.

Some Sites will have a Wrench on top of the Icon. This indicates repair or
remodeling.

You can find out what business each gang has by moving the cross-hairs over a
Site. You want to make sure that there is at least one Robbery, one
Smuggling and one Drug Business on the map so you can add those to your
Business Types later.

These gangs are constantly attacking each other so check your map from time
to time to see the status of the Empire Sites.

 /XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX\
0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0
| III.7.D. Gang Information                                                \
0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

There are three different gangs you have to deal with when doing Empire
Building. Sometimes, as you pass by an Empire Site, then you may see gang
warfare between two rival gangs.

As long as you do not attack a business held by a particular gang then they
will not bother you. But, once you start attacking gang owned Sites, then the
gang will attack you on sight and your owned businesses.

Some of these gangs are more dangerous than others. When attacking gang owned
Sites, explained in the next section, then it is best to focus on one gang,
and remove them, before dealing with another.

Listed below are the three rival gangs:

0================0
| Cholos (Yellow) \
0=====================================>

  This Mexican based gang has few holdings and shouldn't be too hard to deal 
  with. Their gang car is a Sabre Turbo.

0================0
| Bikers (Purple) \
0=====================================>

  This group has more holdings and a bit more dangerous than the Cholos.Their 
  gang vehicle is a Biker Angel.

  It should be noted that one of their Sites, on Vice City Beach (across the 
  street south of Shady Palms Hospital in Vice Point), does not have a 
  vehicle outside. This Site, which is a Drug Business, is taken over during 
  the mission "Hostile Takeover" (The Mendez Brothers) and cannot be attacked 
  beforehand by either you or another gang.

  Therefore, it is best to leave the Bikers alone until after that mission is 
  completed.

0=============0
| Sharks (Red) \
0=====================================>

  This group has the same number of holdings than the Bikers but are far more 
  dangerous. Their gang vehicle is a Ranger.

  These guys carry AK-47s for the most part and, when they fire together as a 
  group, they can hurt or kill you quickly.

  I've seen message board reports of people passing by a group of Sharks in a 
  pristine vehicle only to have it be blown up in less than two seconds when 
  they fire on it. Not cool.

  Therefore it may be best to maximize your health and armor before taking 
  over their businesses.

  There is one interesting thing about the Sharks. They can actually
  disappear from Vice City on their own.

  During one run through I checked my in-game map and saw that all of the 
  Sharks businesses went from red to green (unoccupied). Of course, I used 
  The Yankee Method and grabbed all those green Sites before the Bikers could 
  take them.

  Certainly this makes things a lot easier but I don't know how this happened 
  or how to recreate it. You may want to check your in-game map from time to 
  time as you progress through the game to see if the Sharks make a mass 
  exodus. Take advantage of the situation if it does.

  I had one of my readers, The PHAT G, come up with this observation 
  concerning the Shark exodus:

     "I was reading through your guide and I noticed the part that you 
      mentioned about the mysterious mass exodus of the Sharks on the East 
      Side at a random part of the game. I managed to catch this "exodus" as 
      it happened. I noticed that shortly after I finished mission "To 
      Victor, the Spoils," a property on the East Side went up for sale. 
      Using the Yankee Method, I got the property, but noticed that some of 
      the Sharks' properties were getting damaged. Then ALL of their 
      properties were damaged, and more were going up for sale. It seemed 
      like a mass extermination. I managed to witness a war on one of the 
      properties between the sharks and Bikers, so my theory is the mass 
      exodus is actually the Bikers wiping out the Sharks."

| III.7.E. Attacking Sites                                                 \
0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

To take over a gang owned business, you start by destroying their vehicle
parked outside the business. This will get them to come out. After killing
all those outside the business then you then have to go inside.

Once inside then you have to kill all the gang members inside the business
and destroy their holdings. When you do that then you have successfully taken
over the Empire Site for yourself.

For outside attacking I use either the AK-47 or M249. For inside attacking I
use the Molotovs. It will destroy what I need to destroy quickly. Of course,
it is also best to have the Fireproof Feature (from doing the Firetruck
Mission) before using that weapon. Otherwise use the Shotgun.

The bigger the business, the more gang members and holdings you have to deal
with. You also get money for successfully taking over an Empire Site. The
bigger the business, the more you earn:

  >>Small-Time: $1,000.
  >>Medium Venture: $1,500.
  >>High-Roller: $2,000.

When you forcibly take over a Site then you make it into an Unoccupied Site
and you need to purchase it before anybody else does. Go up to the real
estate sign and press the R3 Button. Then select your Business Type and size.

Of course, when you start attacking a gang owned Site, then that gang will be
hostile to you and they will start attacking your Sites and yourself. This
can be annoying when you are trying to do other things.

However, after you take over all of the Empire Sites from a particular gang,
then there is a trick that you can do to essentially remove them from the
game. Go to any Save Point then save your game. After saving your game then
reload it. This will remove the gang you took all the Empire Sites from.

For example, if you took all of the Biker sites, then saving and reloading
will remove them from the game so they won't attack you any more.

I will also refer to the trick as "Save/Reload".

  >>Grab all Unoccupied Sites. Use The Yankee Method if need be to get those 
    on Vice City Beach.

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

  >>Go after the Cholos. Make sure they have no businesses on Vice City Beach 
    first.

    If they do then wait for those businesses to be taken over before going 
    after them. Do some Reputation Missions (explained later) in the 
    meantime. When you take over all the Cholos Sites then Save/Reload to get 
    rid of the gang.

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

  >>After doing all Reputation Missions for the three currently available 
    Business Types then convert all of your owned businesses to Small-Time
    Prostitution Businesses to improve profitability, while decreasing gang
    attacks, as you're progressing through the Main Story and to opening Vice 
    City Beach.

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

  >>If, by some chance, the Sharks disappear on their own before you can open 
    up Vice City Beach then use The Yankee Method to get to the other side, 
    purchase all of the now Unoccupied Sites and convert them into Small-Time
    Prostitution Businesses before the Bikers can swoop in and take them.

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

  >>Reader Jean-Francois F had this to add about Empire Building that can be 
    useful:

       "I found that taking over all the empire sites on the west island and 
        building them to high roller level was quite helpful income wise. 
        After all of them are taken over, there were few (if no) attacks.

        Then on the east side, I found that attacks were frequent. To 
        counteract this, I found that if I started a smuggling reputation 
        improvement mission, then went over to a site that needed conquering, 
        ended the reputation mission and right away attacked the site, I 
        could minimize attacking gangs. Then once the attack was successful, 
        I'd save at my nearest location and repeat the process. Even then, 
        there is warfare but by the time I was done conquering every site 
        (except the one in Hostile Takeover), only a few of my sites were 
        damaged. When one of my sites was attacked, I went to a save menu and 
        the attacked is "cancelled" even if the empire site takes a little 
        damage. After taking over all 29 sites and building them all in high 
        roller, I did your save load trick to eliminate the gangs from the 
        equation and I enjoyed relative peace until I had all 30 sites."

0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

In order to help get to 100% Completion you must do the following within
Empire Building:

  >>Own all thirty Empire Sites. When you do this then all of the vehicles 
    parked outside your businesses will be bulletproof.
  >>Have all six Business Types:
      --Prostitution.
      --Loan Shark.
      --Protection Racket.
      --Drugs.
      --Robbery.
      --Smuggling.
  >>Create at least one High-Roller Business of each Business Type to earn 
    the following Outfits for your Safehouses:
      --Leisure (Prostitution).
      --Repo-Man (Loan Shark).
      --Hired Muscle (Protection Racket).
      --Tracksuit (Drugs).
      --Hood (Robbery).
      --Smuggler (Smuggler).
  >>Successfully complete all Reputation Missions for all six Business Types 
    to earn the Smart Suit.

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

Each business type has Reputation Missions which you can access by entering
one of your businesses, going up to a gang member and pressing the R3 Button.
These are missions that need to be done to increase the profitability of a
given business type by improving your reputation for said business.

When you complete all the necessary objectives for Reputation Missions then
you will max out your Reputation for that business type and further maximize
your profits.

You only need to do the Reputation Missions for one Site in order to affect
the other businesses of the same type you own. For example, if you have six
Prostitution businesses, then you only need to do the Reputations Missions
for one Site in order to maximize the profits for all six Prostitution
Businesses.

You need to do all Reputation Missions for all six business types in order to
get the Smart Suit Outfit for your Safehouses and for 100% Completion.

However, only the Prostitution, Loan Shark, and Protection Racket business
types are available at this point of the game. So let's go ahead and do the
Reputation Missions for those types now and get them out of the way.

These three Reputation Missions (listed below) have fifteen Jobs that need to
be done in order to maximize your reputation for that business. You do not
have to do all fifteen Jobs consecutively. You can go beyond fifteen Jobs but
you do not need to. You can quit the Reputation Mission by pressing the R3
Button twice.

After completing your first Job then you will be given a ranking. This will
make your business more profitable.

After completing your fifteenth job then you will be given another ranking
and you will also maximize your reputation and the profit for that business
type. The rankings are listed at the bottom of each Reputation Mission
strategy.

Here are the Reputation Mission strategies for the three currently available
business types:

0XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0

This business type involves all of the small businesses I mentioned earlier
in the guide. Your goal is to intimidate the store owners into paying
protection money to you.

The best weapon to use for the Extortion Missions is the Shotgun. It can
easily destroy store merchandise and rival gang members. In addition, there
are three main scenarios you will encounter:

  >>Convince the store owner to pay protection. Head to the store and go 
    inside.

    Go into free-aim mode and shoot up store stock with the Shotgun until the 
    owner gives in. You may or may not get a Wanted Rating when you exit the 
    store.

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

  >>Take over a rival gang store. Go to the store and run over or shoot the 
    guards.

    Then go inside and shoot up the store stock. After destroying some of the 
    store stock then you'll be accosted by the rival gang members.

    Kill the gang members to get the store owner on your side. You may also 
    be attacked by additional gang members when you leave the store.

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

  >>A rival gang attacks your store. You will see a Damage To Store Meter. 

    You need to get to the store in time or the shopkeeper will die and you 
    will fail the mission. When you get to the store then kill the guards in 
    front. Then go inside and kill the gang members to end the attack.

After completing your first Job then you will be a Hoodlum. After you
complete your fifteenth Job then you will maximize your Protection Racket
Reputation and be known as an Ultimate Badass.

The Pimping Mission is exactly like the one in "Grand Theft Auto: San
Andreas" but with a couple of additions.

When you start the mission then you need to enter the Polaris V8 parked
outside your business. Your first priority is to take one of your girls and
get her to a client within the time limit. After that then you need to pick
up another girl from your brothel and do the same thing.

From here, there are five scenarios that can happen:

  >>Pick up the girl. Just go and pick up the girl and take her to the next
    client.

    Before getting her, take the opportunity to repair your vehicle in a Pay 
    'N' Spray if you have badly damaged it in your travels.

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

  >>Running away without paying. When you get to your girl then run over the 
    client and pick up your girl.

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

  >>Client will beat up the girl. Get to your girl quickly. Then get out of

The Loan Shark Missions comprise of repossessing vehicles and taking them
back to the business.

However, it is always the same two vehicles (which alternate):

  >>A van full of merchandise. You need to avoid destroying cargo when taking 
    it back to the business.
  >>A motorbike (PCJ-600).

Usually you need to chase the vehicles but, as I found out, if you do the
Loan Shark Missions near The Beachcomber Hotel, then you hardly need to go
after the vehicles at all. They will come to you instead.

Just stay in front of the Site and see which road the vehicles will take
toward you. After you acquire the vehicle then it is just a few seconds to
get it to the business.

The best weapon to use for this mission is the Pistol. You only need to shoot
at the van, or near it, once to get the drivers to flee or shoot the rider
off of the bike.

If you have to chase the vehicles then you just need to spin out the van or
knock off the rider from the bike.

For each vehicle you get to the business it is $150 plus a $250 bonus for
three in a row. You will also get time extensions.

After completing your first Job then you will be a Lifter. After you complete
your fifteenth Job then you will maximize your Loan Shark Reputation and be
known as a Crim-Reaper.

Now, that we've done that, let's get back to the Main Story.....

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Lance does the driving and Vic does the shooting. Focus on the Cholos cars
  as they approach. Try to kill those outside of their cars. Lance will also 
  meander the car through Little Havana and Little Haiti.

  When you reach the north side of Little Haiti then you bail out of the car 
  and now must deal with the Cholos on foot. Kill the Cholos to protect 
  Vance. Use the AK-47.

  After killing the attacking Cholos then you need to get Vance to his hotel 
  in Downtown. When you get to the hotel then the mission is successfully 
  completed.

  Go to the Firetruck parked nearby. Note the Girls Meter. The meter will go
  down the longer you take. When it disappears then the mission is failed.

  Once you get to the Firetruck then get in and quickly speed to the Brothel. 
  The Brothel is on fire as well as two cars parked outside. If the cars 
  explode then it will makes matters worse.

  When you get to the Brothel then smash into the two flaming cars with 
  enough force to knock them far enough away from the Brothel so their 
  explosions won't cause any problems.

  After that then park close to the Brothel and use the Right Analog Stick to
  direct water to put out the flames. After you have put out the fires then 
  go and chase the arsonist who started it.

  He will lead you to a rooftop. Use any firearm to kill him and successfully 
  complete the mission.

  can take your allies with you. They cannot die either.

  There are five groups of Cholos to deal with. Some are on foot and some are
  in cars.

  Get close to the cars and drive-by them to get the Cholos to come out and 
  let your allies kill them. When on foot then drive-by and/or run over the

  Go into Umberto's car and drive to Hyman Memorial Stadium to pick up
  Alberto. When you pick him up then you need to drive him to his cafe in 
  Little Havana. You have about six minutes to do this.

  However, you can't drive too fast because of the Stress Meter and you need
  to keep it down otherwise you may give Alberto a heart attack. In addition,
  you will need to avoid Cholos who are patrolling the Little Haiti and
  Little Havana areas.

  The best path to take is to start going south from the stadium and onto the
  grass near the beach. When you get back to pavement then hang a right and 
  go around The Compound Safehouse.

  Then go around the City Scrap and head east to the small railroad bridge 
  near the City Scrap entrance. Cross the bridge, go around the Empire Site 
  ahead and continue south along the outskirts of Little Haiti and Little 
  Havana.

  Just after you get past the large dirt mound for Jump [LTV-J11] then head 
  east and through the gap in the fence that enters into the alley north of 
  the Cafe. Then turn right and head to the Cafe to successfully complete the 
  mission.

  When you start the mission, you will notice a Micro-SMG Weapon Icon by the 
  car but you won't need it.

  Head to the Warehouse and kill the five guards while your allies get a gift
  for the Cholos. Approach the Warehouse from the west side and use the 
  chain-link fence to keep the Cholos from getting any closer to you. Use the 
  AK-47 to kill them.

  When your allies arrive then you need to protect them while they load up 
  the vans with the Cholos guns. The Cholos will appear on the radar as red
  blips.

  Kill them when they appear before they attack your allies. The AK-47 makes 
  doing this part easier. Some of them may come up in cars.

  Blow them up with the AK-47 when they approach. There is also a Health and 
  Body Armor Icon to replenish yourself during this part.

  When you destroy the last of the Cholos then you need to take the last van 
  back to Umberto's. Drive off and go into the large concrete ditch southeast 
  of the Warehouse.

  This will make it a little easier to avoid some of the Cholos who will 
  chase you back to Umberto's. You can't let them shoot up the van too much 
  or they will destroy it and you will fail the mission.

  When you get to Umberto's then you will successfully complete the mission.

  The big player's name is Forbes and they will be contacted at the Burger

  After being contacted by Forbes, who will tell Lance of a car being held,
  then the Burger Bar gets robbed. Kill the robbers with the Micro-SMG and go
  outside. But the Police think you robbed the place so get to the car north
  of your position and get away from there.

  You need to get to the Port Authority area but head to the Little Haiti Pay
  'N' Spray to get rid of the Wanted Ratings. When you get to the Port
  Authority then you have to get on the provided Sanchez, climb the stairs 
  and jump to the opposite roof.

  After you get to the opposite roof then use the nearby stairs and go into 
  the impound lot. You find that the car is guarded so kill all the guys you
  encounter. Get in the car and use the highlighted ramp to get out. Ignore
  the other gunmen.

  After you jump out of the impound lot then the mission is successfully

  After being introduced to Forbes then both Vic and Lance need to do some

  M249 (optional).

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

  If you want the Rhino then you may want to keep a vehicle in your 101 
  Bayshore Avenue Safehouse garage plus have lots of ammo for your M249.

0======0
| Notes \
0=======================>

  Got some cool info on how to acquire a Rhino during this mission from Serge 
  Maglalang.

  It turns out that, even though you are stuck on Vice City Mainland with a 
  maximum Wanted Rating of 4-Stars, you can actually jack your Wanted Rating 
  to 6-Stars during this mission and acquire a Rhino for possible use in the 
  Vigilante Mission.

  This plus I have a new driving route from Eblis.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Get to the Decoy Van in south Downtown. Once inside the Van then you need 
  to head to the Warehouse, near the Vice City Printing Works, in Little 
  Haiti.

  After the cutscene ends then get back into the new Decoy Van. Drive east 
  and away from the area.

  As you drive away then you will get a 3-Star Wanted Rating you have to keep 
  until Lance and Forbes are safe. You will also have a Progress Meter that 
  you have to fill up in order to succeed.

  The longer you have the Wanted Rating, the more it fills up. When it is 
  completely full then the first part of the mission is done.

  As you go east then head toward the grass along the seawall and turn south. 
  You will get some Cops hitting your van a bit but not too much. Stay along 
  the grass and follow the seawall.

  Your main objective is Viceport. When you get into Viceport then you need 
  to cut across the parking area west of the large ship and head to a very 
  large crane across the street south of Vice City Port Authority Main 
  Building.

  When you get to this very large crane then stop your van at the south part 
  of the crane. The Cops will just be smashing each other up on the street 
  and the large crane will keep the Police chopper off of your back.

  When the Progress Meter finally fills up then you need to get rid of your 
  Wanted Rating. Head up to the Viceport Pay 'N' Spray to get rid of the 
  Wanted Rating.

  However, if you want the Rhino, then *DON'T* head to the Pay 'N' Spray. Not 
  yet anyway.

  Head up to the large ship at the east side of Viceport. Get up on the 
  seawall by the ship. Then switch to your M249 and shoot up everything to 
  increase your Wanted Rating to 6-Stars.

  When the Rhinos come your way then wait for one of the soldiers to leave 
  the tank, kill him, then jack the vehicle. Head to your 101 Bayshore Avenue 
  Safehouse garage and park the tank next to it. Exit the tank and go into 
  your garage to retrieve the vehicle (any vehicle) you should have stored 
  beforehand and park it next to your Weapon Icons.

  Next, get back into the Rhino and park it in the garage. Go back to the 
  other vehicle and head to the Viceport Pay 'N' Spray (around the backside 
  to avoid the street and other tanks). Go between the pillars and the wall 
  when going into the Pay 'N' Spray to keep the other tanks from getting a 
  clear shot at your car.

  Regardless of what you wish to do, once you enter the Viceport Pay 'N' 
  Spray, then the mission will be successfully completed

  In addition, you will get a message from Lance telling him to meet him at

If you managed to acquire the Rhino during the mission "Money for Nothing"

don't even need to use the Tank Gun that much and the targets didn't move
fast enough to warrant the use of the Tank Gun Boost trick (turn the gun
around and keep firing behind you which will allow you to move very fast).

So basically, you just go around and run into the targets with the tank. This
makes the Vigilante Mission very easy and worth the hassle of acquiring the
Rhino.

Now back to the Main Story.....

  Lance exposes Forbes as a Cop and, after a tense standoff, then Forbes 
  escapes and now Lance and Vic must pursue him.....

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  You need to ram Forbes' car and capture him alive. Take the nearby Cheetah. 

  When you ram him the first time then you find that your money is in his car 
  and you must get Forbes out of his car before all of your money flies away. 
  You can delay this some by following him but not ramming him.

  He will head south going out of Downtown. Zip ahead of him and head to the 
  Fire Station then switch to the Firetruck.

  While you're switching to the Firetruck then his trunk will fly open on its 
  own and the money will fly out. However, the large bulk and speed of the 
  Firetruck will make it easier to spin him out.

  In addition, people will be running in front of you to grab the money so
  you'll probably run over a few of them as you chase Forbes (and possibly
  get a Wanted Rating).

  Just focus on Forbes' car and gently spin him out with the Firetruck. Once
  you get to the point where you can get Forbes then enter the car to get him 
  out and this will end the mission successfully.

  $750.

  In addition, you'll get another Lance mission and a Forbes mission. I'll go
  ahead and do Forbes' first.....

| Overview \
0=======================>

  A tied-up Forbes informs Vic and Lance about a dealer's boat coming up to
  Downtown. The dealer is carrying money and coke and doesn't believe in
  bodyguards. Lance will meet this guy and needs Vic to watch over him.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  AK-47.

0==========0
| Prep Work \
0=======================>

  You should go to the top of the Downtown Police Station to get the AK-47
  Weapon Icon a few times to get enough ammo for this mission.

0======0
| Notes \
0=======================>

  None.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Head to the Vantage Point which is the roof of The Greasy Chopper. You'll
  also get Binoculars. When you get there then watch over Lance. But he will 
  be attacked instead. Go and help Lance.

  However, when you get to the pier, then he will be dragged into a boat 
  which will speed off. Get into the nearby Comet and chase the boat. The 
  dealer will lead you to the large ship at the east side of Viceport.

  Go inside the ship to rescue Lance. Use the AK-47 on those you meet.

  When you go downstairs then kill the first guy then continue forward. You 
  will reach a railing and you will see Lance and three goons surrounding 
  him. The AK-47's range will allow you to kill these goons from here and 
  simplify the rescue.

  Go back to where you killed the first guy then hang a right. Follow the
  way, killing all those ahead of you, until you reach Lance.

  After that then you need to get the Contraband. As you get near the first
  package then you will hear gunshots on deck.

  After getting the package then you need to collect the rest which is on the 
  top deck. Kill the two guys near the door then exit.

  Go and collect all the remaining packages on deck. Use the AK-47 and kill
  the guys protecting the stuff. After getting the last package then get off 
  the ship and meet Lance on shore. This will end the mission successfully.

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

  Head to the White Stallionz Bar just west of your position. Enter the bar
  when you get there. You find out that this is a gay biker club and you have
  been screwed again (figuratively, anyway).

  After the cutscene ends then use your Shotgun and kill the Stallionz then 
  leave. Kill the Bikers waiting outside then go back to the Derelict 
  Building where Forbes is.

  When you get there then Forbes will escape and run off on a moped. Now you 
  need to kill Forbes. If you are in a car then knock him off and run him 
  over. If you are on a bike then forward drive-by him.

  When Forbes is dead then head back to Lance's Hotel to complete the
  mission.

  Lance and Vic get into a fight but is broken up by the sudden appearance of
  their mother and her new boyfriend. Their mother is swearing off drugs for
  good but neither Lance and Vic believe it.

  Lance tells Vic they need to meet someone at the Airport thus giving them a 
  good excuse to leave their coke-headed mother behind. Lance also informs 
  Vic of a dealer getting out of the business and will give him the file on 
  the big shipment.....

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  You need to get Lance to the Airport in four minutes. You have a fast
  Cheetah but you need to be careful not to hit too many vehicles since it is
  not that tough a car.

  When you get to the Airport then you find that the contact has already sold 
  the info to somebody else with a private jet and a private army.

  When you get back outside then pick up your weapons (because of the 
  security screener), re-enter your car and head to Terminal C and deal with 
  the goons.

  Approach the goons on foot and use the AK-47 on them.

  When you do that then the Bikers will appear. Lance will go inside the 
  plane while you handle the Bikers. Kill the Bikers with the AK-47 and the 
  mission will be successfully completed.

  Vic is telling Lance that he wants out of the drug business but, when he 
  finds out that this big shipment of coke is meant for Jerry Martinez, then 
  he changes his mind and decides to get back at Jerry for getting expelled 
  from the Army.....

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Head down to the Docks in Little Haiti. When you get there then Lance will
  attack the dealers.

  You also need to join in and to make sure that Lance doesn't die. Use the 
  AK-47 as it is the best weapon to do this part of the mission.

  When you clear this area then Martinez arrives in a Hunter and you need to 
  take one of the two trucks and follow Lance. Lance will meander through 
  Little Haiti and Little Havana before getting onto the main road (Bayshore 
  Avenue). You'll also be chased by some gunmen but they will pose little 
  problem.

  When you get to the South Bridge then you have to deal with Martinez. He
  will fire some rockets that will detonate ahead of you and head back toward
  you.

  Go to one side of the bridge and, when he fires, then go to the other side. 
  Stay on that side of the bridge and when he fires again go back again to 
  the opposite side. This will make it easy to avoid his attacks.

  When you get to the opposite end of the South Bridge then you will run into 
  the Cops who chase off Martinez but now you have a 4-Star Wanted Rating for
  your trouble. Continue to follow Lance.

  Even with the Cops chasing you they don't do much damage to the truck. 
  Eventually, Lance will lead you to a house in south Ocean Beach. When you 
  get there then the mission is successfully completed.

| Reward \
0=======================>

  $3,000.

  In addition, you'll get two new Purchase Icons at The Compound Safehouse:

    >>Splitz-6 ATV - $4,500.
    >>Squallo - $4,000 (at the pier just outside (west) of the Safehouse).

  And you finally open up.....

With the threat of the hurricane gone you can now go over to Vice City Beach
which is otherwise known as the East Side (based on the road signs above the
bridges that connect the two major areas of Vice City with one another).

You can also now start using aircraft to fly over the metropolis. In
addition, you also unlock the Rocket Launcher and Sniper Rifle Weapon Icons
on Starfish Island.

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.

Now let's have a quick look at your new digs.....

In the southwest part of Vice Point, across the street from The Fairgrounds,
is a condo. It is also where your last Safehouse is located (The Clymenus
Suite).

Like all of your other Safehouses, you also have the use of a garage for
storing vehicles and your Weapon Icons will appear on the dock just behind
the condo.

Also on the dock you will find a Purchase Icon:

    >>Skimmer - $4,500.

Inside your condo you will find a Health Icon (in the kitchen), an Outfit
Icon (to change clothes), and your Game Save Icon. On the upper level, where
your Outfit Icon is, you will find a door to the roof.

On the roof you will find another Purchase Icon:

    >>Little Willie - $5,000.

After getting acquainted with your new digs then let's go on.....

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

  >>The Clymenus Suite
    ******************
      Location: (Southwest) Vice Point, indicated as a Floppy Disc on your 
                map.
      Map: (D-5).
      Notes: This is part of the Midland Condos building and is your major 
             Safehouse on Vice City Beach.

In front of the entrance to The Clymenus Suite is a three-way intersection.
At the southeast corner of this intersection is:

    ***************
      Location: (South) Vice Point.
      Map: (E-5).
      Notes: A large amusement area where one can have some fun and ride the 
             ferris wheel.

From this intersection, head north and turn right at the next three-way
intersection then cross the bridge and stop at the next three-way
intersection. At the northeast corner of this intersection is:

  >>The Well Stacked Pizza Co.
    **************************
      Location: (Central) Vice Point.

you to:

  >>Leaf Links Golf Club
    ********************
      Location: Leaf Links.
      Map: (C-[4, 5], D-[4, 5]).
      Notes: This is the major golf course for this region. The entry to the 
             golf course has a metal detector that will strip you of all of 
             your weapons.

However, from this intersection, turn right and stop at the next three-way
intersection. At the northeast corner of this intersection is the:

  >>Vice Point Apartments
    *********************
      Location: (North) Vice Point.
      Map: ([C, D]-5).
      Notes: This complex stretches from the yellow and white building at 
             this intersection all the way to the pink building northeast of 
             Links View Heights (which is north of here).

From here, continue forward and stop at the next three-way intersection. At
the northwest corner of this intersection is the:

  >>Links View Heights
    ******************
      Location: (North) Vice Point.
      Map: (C-5).
      Notes: This large white building with beige trim will become an asset 
             property in "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City".

Next, head to the next three-way intersection and stop. At the northwest
corner of this intersection is the:

  >>Vice Point Pay 'N' Spray
    ************************
      Location: (North) Vice Point.
      Map: (C-5).
      Notes: This is where you can have your vehicle repaired or re-sprayed 
             to get rid of Wanted Ratings.

From here, continue forward and go through the next two three-way
intersections then stop at the next three-way intersection where this road
ends. This intersection is part of a triple intersection comprised of three
three-way intersections.

The intersection you are at is the center of this area. At the northwest
corner of this triple intersection is a large hotel and that is the:

  >>Ducum Inn
    *********
      Location: (North) Vice Point.
      Map: (C-5).
      Notes: This is one of the largest hotels in Vice City and has a large 
             swimming pool in the back.

At the southeast corner of the intersection you are at is the:

  >>El Swanko Casa
    ***************
      Location: (North) Vice Point.
      Map: (C-5).
      Notes: This luxurious house will become an asset property in "Grand 
             Theft Auto: Vice City".

And at the northeast corner of this triple intersection is the:

  >>Shady Palms Hospital
    ********************
      Location: (North) Vice Point.
      Map: (C-5).
      Notes: This is where you will be if you end up getting Wasted while on 
             Vice City Beach near the Vice Point area.

From your current position, head northeast to the Hospital and proceed north
from there. The road will eventually curve west and you will go over:

  >>North Bridge (East)
    *******************
      Location: (North) Vice City.
      Map: (B-5).
      Notes: This bridge connects Vice Point to Prawn Island.

Once on Prawn Island then stop at the four-way intersection near the center
of the island. To the north you will find:

  >>The Mendez Brothers House
    *************************
      Location: (North) Prawn Island.
      Notes: This large blue house at the north end of the island is the 
             residence of the notorious Mendez Brothers who are major players
             in Vice City's crime scene. This place usually has a couple of 
             cars parked out in front.

And at the southwest corner of this intersection is:

  >>Interglobal Films
    *****************
      Location: (Southwest) Prawn Island.
      Notes: A moderately sized film studio where B-movies and commercials 
             are usually filmed.

From here, turn around and head back to the triple intersection near the
Hospital.

When you get back to the triple intersection then turn right and go along the
hairpin curve that goes around the south end of the Ducum Inn then go
through the next three-way intersection. As you continue north then you will
go under North Bridge (East).

Just after the bridge then you should see to your right the:

  >>North Point Mall
    ****************
      Location: (North) Vice Point.
      Map: (B-5).
      Notes: The major mall for Vice City. This place houses many stores 
             including an Ammu-Nation.

             **NOTE: On the map that comes with the game it says North Point 
                     Mall but in the game itself, when you enter the place, 
                     it will say Vice Point Mall. I am sticking with the 
                     North Point Mall name since that is what this place is 
                     also called in "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City."

Continue along the road and it will eventually curve east to go along the
north side of the mall. Follow the road until you get to the road curve going
south then stop.

On the outside part of this curve you will see a large green building with a
"Hotel" sign on top. The address for this building is:

  >>3321 Vice Point Rd.
    *******************
      Location: (Northeast) Vice Point.
      Map: ([A, B]-5).

    *************************
      Location: (North) Vice Point.
      Map: (C-5).
      Notes: This is where you will be if you end up getting Busted while on 
             Vice City Beach near the Vice Point area.

From here, continue forward through the next three-way intersections then
stop at the next three-way intersection. At the southwest corner of this
intersection is the:

  >>Washington Street Apartments

      Map: (D-5).
      Notes: This small cluster of apartment buildings has a courtyard with 
             several basketball courts.

Now continue forward and stop at the road curve going west. Inside the road
curve is:

      Location: (South) Vice Point.
      Map: (D-5).
      Notes: The big time nightclub for Vice City and will become an asset

  >>Standing Vice Point Hotel
    *************************
      Location: (South) Vice Point, just southeast of The Malibu Club.
      Map: (E-5).
      Notes: This is also another of the major hotels for Vice City Beach.

After that then stop at the next intersection. You will see that this is part
of a double intersection that resembles a starfish. Head to the south part of
this intersection and go southwest.

And to your left you should see the:

  >>Washington Beach Police Station
    *******************************
      Location: (North) Washington Beach.
      Map: (E-5).
      Notes: This is where you will be if you end up getting Busted while on 
             Vice City Beach near the Washington Beach area.

Continue to the next three-way intersection then proceed southwest across the
bridge. After the bridge then go through the next four-way intersection and
stop at the next four-way intersection.

At the southwest corner of this intersection is the:

  >>Starfish Apartment Complex
    **************************
      Location: (Southwest) Vice Point, at the east end of Island Bridge

    **********************
      Location: (Southwest) Washington Beach.
      Map: (F-4).
      Notes: This colorful red and lavender building will become an asset

      Map: (F-[4, 5]).
      Notes: This nondescript building also serves as an office building 
             which houses a lawyer's office.

Continue forward and stop at the next three-way intersection. At the
southwest corner of this intersection is the:

Listed below are the remaining seventeen Rampages that can be found on Vice
City Beach and the strategies for each one:

| Prawn Island (PRI) \
0=====================================================>

[PRI-R19] - Destroy 15 Vehicles [Rocket Launcher]
            *************************************
              Location: By the main fountain in the center of Prawn Island.
              Map: (B-4).
              **NOTE: This is a [*PS2 Exclusive*] Rampage.

                      Destroy nearby cars, including your own, then head back 
                      to Vice City Beach (on foot) destroying cars as you go.

                      An alternate strategy is to bring a PCJ-600 with you. 
                      Then, after you start the Rampage, use the bike to 
                      quickly go over to the parking garage at Vice Point 
                      Mall where you can destroy all the cars you need 
                      without being disturbed.

| North Point Mall (NPM) \
0=====================================================>

[NPM-R20] - Kill 70 Sharks in two minutes [M249]
            ************************************
              Location: In the security booth near the elevators.
              Map: (B-5).
              **NOTE: This is a [*PS2 Exclusive*] Rampage.

                      One of the popular strategies is to head toward the 
                      southeast corner of the mall and hang underneath the
                      walkway.

                      When you start killing Sharks then they will fire back. 
                      Some of them will generate on the second floor but, if 
                      you stand underneath the walkway, then they shouldn't 
                      pose any problems since they will fire into the floor 
                      above you.

                      When you kill Sharks then you have to use the L2 and R2
                      Buttons to quickly switch between victims as you fire 
                      into a group. After you kill a group then run for a 
                      little bit to get more to generate on the ground floor 
                      but still staying under the walkway.

                      This Rampage is still tough but you should be able to 
                      get enough victims to complete the Rampage.

| Vice Point (VCP) \
0=====================================================>

[VCP-R21] - Obliterate 25 Bikers in two minutes [Equalizer]
            ***********************************************
              Location : At the north end of a wall.
              Directions: From the north entrance of North Point Mall, head 
                          west and you will see a large beige and white 
                          building to your right as you near the road curve 
                          going south. On the west side of this building is a 
                          wall. Climb the wall then head north and you will 
                          see the Rampage at the other end.
              Map: (A-5).
              Notes: This one isn't too hard despite the Bikers using machine 
                     guns. If you are good with targeting then you can take 
                     down small groups quickly with little damage.

                     Don't run up the nearby hill. You may not get a good 
                     angle to shoot down on some of the Bikers. Keep your 
                     distance from larger groups as this should limit their 
                     damage.

[VCP-R22] - Annihilate 25 Bikers [Spaz 12]
            ******************************
              Location: At the northeast corner of a blue and white building 
                        directly across the street north of North Point Mall.
              Map: (A-5).
              Notes: After acquiring the Rampage then get back down to street 
                     level. Take down the first group you see.

                     Then turn around and take down those that spawned behind 
                     you. Then turn around again and repeat. Continue with 
                     this pattern until the Rampage is successfully 
                     completed.

[VCP-R23] - Explode 15 Vehicles [Grenades]
            ******************************
              Location: Tucked in the corner of a wall at the southwest 
                        corner of the large gray and white building across 
                        the street east of Shady Palms Hospital.
              Map: (C-5).
              Notes: Get a fast vehicle, preferably a PCJ-600 or a 
                     Streetfighter and bring it with you.

                     After acquiring the Rampage then head over to the 
                     parking garage for North Point Mall. Toss Grenades near 
                     each car you see as you start on the ground floor and 
                     make your way to the top.

                     You should have successfully completed the Rampage by 
                     the time you reach the top level.

[VCP-R24] - Terminate 25 Sharks [M-16]
            **************************
              Location: On top of the Bumper Cars at The Fairgrounds.
              Directions: Drive an Ambulance to the Bumper Cars so you can 
                          climb it to access the Rampage.
              Map: (E-5).
              Notes: Use the various buildings as cover as you kill the 
                     Sharks as they tend to spawn in large groups and can do 
                     some serious damage. The ramp at the south entrance is 
                     also a good way to get the upper hand since you can 
                     shoot down on them but they can't get a good angle on 
                     you.

[VCP-R25] - Destroy 10 Vehicles [Mini-Gun]
            ******************************
              Location: In the shower stalls at the northwest side of the 
                        Starfish Apartment Complex.
              Map: (E-4).
              Notes: Head east back to the street. When you get to the 
                     street then point north to the intersection and destroy 
                     all the cars you see. From this point, enough cars 
                     should generate for you to successfully complete the 
                     Rampage.

| Leaf Links Golf Club (LGC) \
0=====================================================>

[LGC-R26] - Slay 20 Sharks [Remote Grenades]
            ********************************
              Location: In the middle of the Tennis Courts north of the 
                        Clubhouse.
              Map: (C-5).
              Notes: The thing here is that you have Remote Grenades instead 
                     of regular Grenades so you can't just throw and forget. 
                     You have to throw and then detonate.

                     The good thing about the Sharks in this Rampage is that 
                     they have just Baseball Bats and Pistols which makes 
                     things a bit easier. You need to keep some distance 
                     between you and the Sharks otherwise you may hurt 
                     yourself in the blast when you detonate the Remote 
                     Grenades.

                     They also tend to spawn in large groups so you can 
                     destroy a lot of them at once.

[LGC-R27] - Kill 10 Sharks [Golf Club]
            **************************
              Location: Under the bridge that connects Leaf Links Golf Club 
                        with Vice Point.
              Map: (D-5).
              Notes: The Sharks are un-armed but can still be dangerous. They 
                     can beat you up as you try to swing at them.

                     The best thing I found is to lock onto one Shark and 
                     beat him down to the ground. Once he is down on the 
                     ground then keep locked on him even when he is dead.

                     When he is down and locked on then you do a power swing 
                     which can also knock down and kill other Sharks that 
                     happen to be close to your assigned victim. This also 
                     keeps the other Sharks from hitting you.

                     Doing things this way should allow you to do this 
                     Rampage with little damage.

| Washington Beach (WSB) \
0=====================================================>

[WSB-R28] - Eradicate 30 Sharks [SMG]
            *************************
              Location: On the roof of a beige and teal building.
              Directions: From the three-way intersection at the southeast 
                          corner of the Washington Beach Police Station, head 
                          south then stop at the next three-way intersection. 
                          At the northeast corner of this intersection is a 
                          beige and teal building.

                          At the east side of this building is a set of 
                          stairs that will allow you to reach the roof so you 
                          can access the Rampage.
              Map: (E-5).
              Notes: The Sharks use Mac-10s so this becomes a moderately 
                     difficult Rampage. Jump onto the ledge and target the
                     Sharks. Use the L2 and R2 Buttons to quickly switch
                     targets.

                     From this vantage point they can do little damage. 
                     However, if they are close to the wall, then you won't 
                     be able to shoot at them.

                     When you get about 20 to 21 victims then go to street 
                     level and quickly claim the rest to complete the 
                     Rampage. Then run like hell away from the area because 
                     of the leftover Sharks who want to kill you.

[WSB-R29] - Terminate 30 Sharks [Mini-Gun]
            ******************************
              Location: Hidden in the bushes directly west of the entrance 
                        for the Washington Beach Apartments and close to the 
                        Fidl Store.
              Map: (F-5).
              Notes: Go out into the street, hold down the fire button and 
                     start looking for Sharks to kill. Even though the Sharks
                     use Mac-10s this really isn't a hard Rampage to do. The 
                     range and power of the Mini-Gun can shred these guys in 
                     seconds.

[OCB-R30] - Eliminate 30 Sharks [Rocket Launcher]
            *************************************
              Location: On top of a small building at the Washington Mall 
                        Construction Site.
              Map: (F-4).
              Notes: Head into the nearby street. Keep a considerable 
                     distance from the Sharks so you don't get caught up in 
                     the blasts (and they don't hurt you as much with their 
                     machine guns). Run away from them if they get too close. 
                     Not too difficult.

[OCB-R31] - Kill 25 Sharks [Equalizer]
            **************************
              Location: Directly behind the golden "HOTEL" sign above the 
                        entrance for the hotel at the northwest corner of the 
                        three-way intersection next to the Ocean Beach Pay 
                        'N' Spray.
              Directions: You will need to use a helicopter to access.
              Map: (G-4).
              Notes: Stay on the upper level. This will limit the damage the 
                     Sharks can do.

                     Move around the upper level to get more Sharks to spawn. 
                     When you successfully complete the Rampage then jump 
                     down and run as fast as you can from the area so you 
                     don't get shot up by the Sharks that remain.

[OCB-R32] - Extirpate 25 Sharks [Laser Sniper]
            **********************************
              Location: In the ruins next door north of the Ocean Beach Pay 
                        'N' Spray.
              Map: (G-4).
              Notes: Go up the large ramp and stand at the end. Rotate to the 
                     north to pick off some Sharks then rotate south to get 
                     the Sharks that spawned behind you.

                     Rotate north to get the Sharks that spawned behind you 
                     when you looked south and repeat the pattern. When they 
                     start to gather near the fence below you and stop 
                     spawning then jump to the platform to the north, get 
                     close to the edge and pick off the Sharks near the fence 
                     to successfully complete the Rampage.

[OCB-R33] - Level 12 Vehicles [M249]
            ************************
              Location: On the west end of a ledge that goes around a white 
                        and beige building (that becomes The Pole Position 
                        club in "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City").
              Directions: You will need to use a helicopter to land on this 
                          building. This building is at the northwest corner 
                          of the three-way intersection east of the front of 
                          Ocean Heights Apartments. Once you land on this 
                          building then drop down to the ledge to access the 
                          Rampage.
              Map: (G-4).
              Notes: Get back to street level and head to the Ocean Beach 
                   Parking Garage. Destroy any cars you encounter on the way
                   there. When you get to the Garage then destroy the 
                   remaining cars you need to complete the Rampage.

[OCB-R34] - Decimate 25 Sharks [Assault Rifle]
            **********************************
              Location: Behind the shrub wall at the southeast corner of the 
                        apartment building directly next door east of Ocean 
                        Heights Apartments.
              Map: (G-4).
              Notes: Head to the shrub wall north of where you get the 
                     Rampage and turn around. You should now see some Sharks.

                     As you kill the Sharks then you will also notice that 
                     the shrub wall, which should be to your left, will 
                     shield you from the Sharks that spawn behind you. When 
                     you get rid of the first group of Sharks then run south 
                     to the south shrub wall, turn around and kill the Sharks 
                     you see.

                     Repeat the pattern until you successfully complete the 
                     Rampage.

[OCB-R35] - Kill 25 Sharks [Laser Sniper]
            *****************************
              Location: On the roof of a white and blue building.
              Directions: From the entrance to Ocean Heights Apartments, head 
                          east and stop at the next three-way intersection. 
                          At the southeast corner of this intersection is a 
                          white building with blue trim.

                          There is a set of stairs at the east side of this 
                          building you need to use to get access to the 
                          rooftop where you will find the Rampage.
              Map: (G-5).
              **NOTE: This is a [*PS2 Exclusive*] Rampage.

                      Even though you are high up on the roof it won't 
                      provide much advantage since the Sharks will cluster at 
                      the base of the wall and you won't be able to shoot at 
                      them because of the bad angle.

                      The best thing to do is, without firing at the Sharks 
                      (to keep them from firing at you), jump off of the roof 
                      and head near Rampage [OCB-R34] then start shooting at 
                      the Sharks and perform the same strategy that you did 
                      for that 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.....

              Location: By the railing south of the salmon and white building

                        parking garage.

              Vehicle: PCJ-600.
              Notes: This one is kind of tricky. You have to start near 
                     Rampage [VCP-R21] and follow the curve to the ramp.

[VCP-J24] - A concrete ramp
            ***************
              Location: At the southwest corner of the roof of the blue and 
                        white building across the street north of North Point 
                        Mall.
              Heading: East to West and land on the roof of the building next 
                       door west of the Jump.
              Map: (A-5).
              Vehicle: PCJ-600.
              Notes: You need to use the stairs at the back of the building 
                     to access the roof.

[VCP-J25] - A concrete ramp
            ***************
              Location: At the southeast corner of North Point Mall.
              Heading: West to East.
              Map: (B-5).
              Vehicle: PCJ-600.
              Notes: This is a tough one. The ramp isn't lined up with the 
                     path and you need to jump the Brodie's Hotel sign and 
                     land beyond the glass railing beyond it to get credit 
                     for the Jump. You pretty much need to lean down the 
                     whole way to get enough speed to make the Jump.

[VCP-J26] - A wooden ramp
            *************
              Location: Against the railing just southwest of the Ducum Inn.
              Heading: North to South.

              Vehicle: PCJ-600.
              **NOTE: This is a [*PS2 Exclusive*] Unique Stunt Jump.

                      This one is a little tricky to line up because of the 
                      hairpin curve. Start at the large shrubbery east of the 
                      three-way intersection at the northwest corner of the 
                      Inn and head straight to the ramp.

                      When you hit the ramp then you should be good. This is 
                      an easy one to get when you approach it right.

[VCP-J28] - A concrete ramp
            ***************
              Location: At the south side of The Malibu Club.
              Heading: South to North.
              Map: (D-5).
              Vehicle: PCJ-600.
              Notes: You need to get a lot of good speed, including leaning 
                     down on the bike, to get the distance you need to get
                     credit for the Jump (start at the concrete ramp near the
                     five-way intersection to the south). If you lean all the 
                     way then you should jump completely over the Club.

                     I believe that the distance needed is about 70 Meters 
                     regardless of whether you clear the Club or not (on my 
                     second try for this guide I got about 95 Meters).

                     On my first try (when I was taking my initial notes for 
                     this guide), I tried to make the Jump and instead I 
                     clipped the left side of the ramp. I barely got higher 
                     than six feet, flew backwards and smacked into the 
                     backdoor of the Club.

                     And yet I got credit for the Jump. Odd.

              **NOTE: This is a [*PS2 Exclusive*] Unique Stunt Jump.

                      You can hit the north end of the ferris wheel and still 
                      get credit for the Jump.

                      You don't need a lot of speed to get this one but it is 
                      best to start at the Going Gas Station across the 
                      street south of the Construction Site.

              Location: On the roof of a building.
              Directions: From the entrance to Ocean Heights Apartments, head

                          At the southeast corner of this intersection is a 
                          white building with blue trim.

                          There is a set of stairs at the east side of this 
                          building you need to use to get access to the

              Notes: After climbing to the top of the blue and white building 
                     and look north then you will see that the ramp is a 
                     couple of buildings ahead of you. Back the wheels to the 
                     south edge of this roof before making your run.

                     When you begin your approach then lean down to get 
                     enough speed. You must clear the large building to get 
                     credit for the Jump.

After completing the Jumps listed here then you should now have completed all
of the Unique Stunt Jumps in the game.

At this point you should have completed all Discovered Extras in the game so
you won't have to deal with them anymore. Now it's time to do some
side-missions starting with.....

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

This side-mission can be found behind Ocean View Hospital (Ocean Beach) and
on top of Schuman Healthcare Center (Downtown).

Get into the Air Ambulance and press the R3 Button to begin. You have to pick
up patients with a winch you cannot raise or lower.

You start with one patient and the number will increase by one per odd
numbered level until a maximum of four is reached.

You get time bonuses for picking up patients and dropping them off at the
nearest hospital that has a Helipad. The time you start off with when you
advance a level is based on closest patient.

To pick up a patient, hover over one and gently drop down until the patient
grabs the winch. You can pick up a maximum of four patients with the winch.
To drop off a patient, lower the patient into the pink circle at the Helipad
at either Ocean View Hospital or Schuman Healthcare Center.

Patience is needed when picking up patients between buildings and other tight
spots. Your helicopter won't spin when your blades hit a building so you need
to keep a close eye on them when you get close to a building.

If you don't keep an eye on the copter blades then you won't know if you've
hit a building until your copter goes up in flames.

You also need to be careful if storms pop up. The high gust of wind can
easily blow you into a building or slow you down when trying to pick up
patients.

You need to complete 15 Levels in order to succeed in this mission.
Succeeding in this mission will increase your maximum Health which is
represented with a "+" by your Health Bar.

Like most of the other vehicle based side-missions in VCS, you will be given
checkpoints at Level 5 and Level 10.

Now that I have upgraded my health and armor I am going to take over all the
Shark owned businesses (assuming that they haven't disappeared on their own
earlier). Since the Sharks are very dangerous then I wanted to wait until I
increased my maximum health and armor before going after them.

In the process of taking over the Shark businesses you will finally be able
to do some, if not all, of the three remaining Business Types:

  >>Robbery
  >>Drug
  >>Smuggling

If the Sharks don't have all three remaining Business Types then you will
have to wait until you can take over the Biker businesses later on to get the
ones the Sharks didn't have.

There have been reports of a bug that may occur if you wait until the mission
"Hostile Takeover" (The Mendez Brothers) to acquire your first Drug Business.
If the Sharks didn't have any Drug Businesses to take over then I have a way
around this possible problem which I will explain later.

Robbery Businesses make the most money out of all six business types so it is
best to convert all of your owned businesses into Robbery Businesses as soon
as you're finished doing all of Reputation Missions for the Drug, Robbery
and, Smuggling business types.

In addition, if you make a High-Roller Business of any of these new Business
Types, then you will earn a new Outfit for your Safehouses:

  >>Hood (Robbery).
  >>Tracksuit (Drug).
  >>Smuggler (Smuggling).

Also, each new Business Type has a different vehicle you can use parked right
outside:

  >>Landstalker (Robbery).
  >>Stallion (Drug).
  >>Sabre Turbo (Smuggling).

    When you take over a Shark controlled Robbery Business then convert it 
    into a Robbery Business. When you take over a Shark controlled 
    Prostitution, Loan Shark, or Protection Racket Business then convert it 
    into a Robbery Business.

    businesses later on.

  >>After doing all Reputation Missions for the three new Business Types then 
    convert all of your owned businesses to Small-Time Robbery Businesses to
    improve profitability, while decreasing gang attacks, as you're 
    progressing through the Main Story.

Each of these three new Business Types, just like the other three, have
Reputation Missions you need to do for maximum profitability and 100%
Completion. However, these Reputation Missions are broken up into regular
style missions.

Each Drug, Smuggling, and Robbery business has six Reputation Missions to be
completed. After completing your first Mission then you will be given a
ranking. This will make your business more profitable.

After completing your last Reputation Mission for the chosen Business Type
then you will be given another ranking and you will also maximize your
reputation and the profit for that Business Type. The rankings are listed at
the bottom of each Reputation Mission strategy.

If you completed all Reputation Missions for Prostitution, Loan Shark, and
Protection Racket businesses and complete all Reputation Missions for Drug,
Smuggling, and Robbery businesses then you earn the Smart Suit Outfit for
your Safehouses.

Even after you have completed the last Reputation Mission then you can do
them again for fun and the missions will be chosen at random.

Listed below are the missions for the Drug, Robbery, and Smuggling
businesses:

| Mission 1 - "The Briefcase Courier" \
0=====================================================>
| Reward: $1,600 |
0================0

  Ambush the courier's vehicle and stop it from reaching its destination. Do

  close enough. In addition, the drivers will call for additional backup.

  Get ahead of the money truck, get out of your vehicle and kill the driver

  the business to successfully complete the mission.

0==============================0
| Mission 4 - "The Money Truck" \

0=====================================================>
| Reward: $4,100 |
0================0

  This is the same as Mission 3. But you will get 2-Star Wanted Rating when 
  you get close to the boat.

  When you take the boat then get close to land because your boat will most 
  likely be destroyed before reaching your destination. Once on land then go 
  to a nearby Pay 'N' Spray before going to your business to successfully 
  complete the mission.

0====================================0
| Mission 6 - "The Briefcase Courier" \
0=====================================================>

The smuggling missions are done a bit differently than the other Reputation
Missions. The money you make is based on how many packages you bring back to
the warehouse (number of crates x $200).

The first part of each mission is the collection of the packages. The second
part is to bring the packages back to the warehouse.

The truck you use for taking the packages will always have the back open and
you can lose packages if you run into things. When you put the truck through
a Pay 'N' Spray then it will make it look like the back of the truck is
closed but it is still open and you can still lose packages.

If you lose all of the packages, or get the truck destroyed, then the mission
is failed.

The location for a Smuggling Business is a bit more important than for any
other business. You want to be close to a dock and/or a Pay 'N' Spray to
minimize problems when taking the crates to the warehouse.

The strategies below are based on doing them from the Empire Site at the west
side of the Washington Mall Construction Site:

0=======================0
| Mission 1 - "The Drop" \
0=====================================================>

  Get to the designated boat at the Vice City Marina and drive to the 
  helicopter. When you get to the helicopter then it will drop one package.

  When you pick that up then the helicopter will drop three more packages. 
  You need to pick up the three packages before the helicopter will drop any 
  more.

  You also have a time limit that begins at one minute. You can get a three
  second time increase when you pick up a package.

  You will also see a Damage Meter but you really shouldn't run into anything 
  other than the packages you are supposed to pick up. When you get fifteen 
  packages then you will need to get back to the jetty closest to where you 
  picked up the packages.

  After you get back to the jetty then you have a limited amount of time to 
  drive the truck back to the warehouse to successfully complete the mission 
  and become a Mule.

0================================0
| Mission 2 - "Supply and Demand" \
0=====================================================>

  Get to the designated boat at the Vice City Marina and drive to the 
  helicopters. There are two helicopters this time.

  But you will also have to contend with two other boats who will go after 
  the packages the helicopters drop. You still need to get fifteen packages 
  but you will also get a five second time bonus instead of three.

  Focus on collecting the packages but, if the opportunity arises, then go 
  ahead and drive-by the nearest boat in hopes of hitting the pilot and 
  stopping it dead. This will make your collecting easier.

  After collecting the fifteen packages then head to the jetty closest to 
  where you picked up the packages. From there then drive back to the 
  warehouse to successfully complete the mission.

0=======================0
| Mission 3 - "The Drop" \
0=====================================================>

  This is exactly the same as Mission 1 except that you get a 4-Star Wanted 
  Rating upon return to shore. Kill the nearby Cops then head to the nearest 
  Pay 'N' Spray to get rid of the Wanted Rating.

  The overaggressiveness of the Police will make this part very difficult. 
  They also have a nasty habit of putting up roadblocks on the roads leading 
  to the Pay 'N' Spray.

  If you manage to get rid of the Wanted Ratings then head back to the base 
  to successfully complete the mission.

  If you use the Empire Site near the Washington Mall Construction Site and 
  are fortunate enough to dock at the Vice City Marina then you can use the 
  L-shaped path through the park behind the parked truck then, once you get 
  back on the road, then make a run for the warehouse instead of trying to go 
  to the Ocean Beach Pay 'N' Spray (because you won't have enough time).

0================================0
| Mission 4 - "Supply and Demand" \
0=====================================================>

  This is exactly the same as Mission 2 except that you get a 4-Star Wanted 
  Rating upon return to shore. Heed the same advice as mentioned in Mission 3 
  in dealing with Police pursuit.

0=======================0
| Mission 5 - "The Drop" \
0=====================================================>

  This is exactly as Mission 1 except you need to avoid rival gang boats 
  after package collection. Focus on getting back to the jetty and not 
  shooting boats.

  The boats are fairly slow so you should have no problems although they may 
  take a few chunks out of your vessel. You won't have to deal with the gang 
  or Police when you get back on land so it is a cakewalk back to the 
  warehouse.

0===========================0
| Mission 6 - "Wave Goodbye" \
0=====================================================>

  This is exactly the same as Mission 4 except that you need to collect 
  twenty packages with a six second bonus and rival boats shoot back. The 
  same strategy for Mission 4 also applies here.

After completing the last Smuggling Reputation Mission then you will maximize
your reputation and become a Pirate Captain.

Now let's go back and finish up some of the side-missions.....

| IV.11. "Mashin' Up the Mall"                                       [MSUM] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Inside the northwest part of North Point Mall is a kiosk where there is a BMX
bike. Getting on the bike will trigger a Checkpoint Race. You must collect
fifty Coronas and beat the best time of 4:30.

However, the fifty Coronas are split between three colors: red, green, and
blue. Each color requires a specific action in order to pick them up:

0=========================0
| Red Coronas (20 Coronas) \
0==========================================>

  Just touch them to collect them.

0===========================0
| Green Coronas (15 Coronas) \
0==========================================>

  You must perform a Wheelie to collect them. I usually get up to one then 
  jump and lean back to collect the Corona.

0==========================0
| Blue Coronas (15 Coronas) \
0===========================================>

  You must perform a Stoppie. Get up to one then brake while leaning forward.

It should be noted that you barely have to perform the action to make the
collection count. This makes things a little easier.

When I do this race then I start on the upper floor, make my way around and
then head downstairs to collect the rest.

Successful completion of this race will net you $500. You can do the race
again but you must beat your best time in order to win.

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

| IV.12. Beach Patrol                                                [BCTR] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

On the beach directly east of the Standing Vice Point Hotel is a beach shack
with BF Injection parked by it. Getting inside the BF Injection will trigger
the Beach Patrol side-mission.

What's interesting about this side-mission is that there are three different
scenarios you may encounter (randomly selected). This determines how easy or
hard this side-mission is going to be. Like before, you need to complete
fifteen levels (with checkpoints at Level 5 and 10) in order to succeed.

But you only need to successfully complete one scenario in order to get
credit for doing this side-mission. You don't need to do the other two
scenarios unless you're curious or looking for something different.

The three scenarios, from hardest to easiest, are:

0===========0
| Life Saver \
0=====================================>

  You have to go to a boat and drive around saving troubled swimmers. You 
  save the swimmers by throwing Life Savers at them (in drive-by mode) within 
  the assigned time. You can't get too close to the swimmers or you will 
  overthrow the Life Saver.

  In addition, the lifeguard, who actually does the throwing when you press 
  the Circle Button, has about a one to one and a half second delay before 
  throwing. Also, you can't smack into the other boats too hard or this will 
  be interpreted as an attack on the lifeguard and you will fail.

  You will eventually max out at three swimmers per level and they can get 
  pretty spread out. This scenario is easily the hardest of the three in 
  Beach Patrol.

0=============0
| Biker Killer \
0=====================================>

  Bikers are tearing through the beach and you must put an end to them. All 
  you really do here is go over and smack the riders off their bikes within 
  the assigned time.

  The maximum number of bikers you will have to deal with is four and that 
  starts on Level 4.

0=================0
| Paramedic Driver \
0=====================================>

  The Ambulance is stuck on the sand and you need to drive the Paramedic from 
  patient to patient so the Paramedic can do his job (within the assigned 
  time).

  Get as close as you can to the patient to save time when the Paramedic goes 
  and revives the person. The maximum number of patients you will deal with 
  per level is three starting with Level 3.

When successfully completed then you will gain Infinite Swimming Stamina,
$1,500, and a new Purchase Icon at Sunshine Autos:

    >>Bulletproof BF Injection - $4,000.

| IV.13. "Land, Sea, and Air Ace"                                    [LSAC] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

Near The Lighthouse in south Ocean Beach is a parked Sanchez. Getting on the
Sanchez will trigger a multi-vehicle Checkpoint Race. You must beat the best
time of 4:30.

When you are on the Sanchez then you will travel around the Lighthouse and
beach area. When you get near The Lighthouse again then you will see a ramp.

On the other side of the ramp is the next vehicle you must use which is a
Jetski. Hit the ramp at a high rate of speed. While in the air then jump off
of the Sanchez as close as possible to the Jetski. This will save valuable
time.

When you are on the Jetski then you will travel from The Lighthouse area, go
through the narrow channels that cut through Washington Beach and head
through Leaf Links Golf Club.

In one of the lakes for the Golf Club is a Sea Sparrow which is the final
vehicle you must use for this course. Hit the land at a high rate of speed
and jump off the Jetski as close as possible to the Sea Sparrow.

When you are in the Sea Sparrow then you must travel through the Coronas in
the Washington Beach and Ocean Beach areas. Be mindful of the height of the
Coronas.

The last thing you want to do at this stage of the race, and the time is
pretty tight by the way, is to miss a Checkpoint because you didn't either go
high or low enough to get them. The last Checkpoint is just past where you
pick up Lance's missions in Ocean Beach.

Successfully completing this race will get you $500. If you do this race
again then you must beat your best time in order to win.

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

To the east of The Lighthouse is a Skimmer parked at the pier. Getting inside
the Skimmer will trigger this Checkpoint Race. You have to beat the time of
2:30 in order to succeed.

This should be done with calm seas as to make takeoff easier and faster. When
going low down the streets through Ocean Beach clip the top of Checkpoints.

The biggest problem will be the Checkpoint inside the Starfish Island
entrance. Go at a low angle to get at this one and bounce off the bridge to
get back up in the air.

Eventually you will end where you began. Successfully completing this race
will get you $500. If you do this race again then you must beat your best
time in order to win.

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

Behind the Fire Station in Downtown is a helicopter. Entering the helicopter
will trigger the Fire Copter side-mission.

You need to take the chopper and put out the fires in the allotted time.
There are five levels in total.

Press the Circle Button to release water from the water bucket which has a
limited supply. When you run out of water then you need to fly out over the
sea to replenish the bucket.

However, very little water is needed to put out fires. When over a fire then
just tap the X Button to release a little bit of water. This should allow you
to put out the fires without ever needing to refill.

When you put out the last fire then you need to fly back to the Fire Station
for appraisal. You will get an automatic bucket refill when you start the
next level.

Your reward for successful completion of this side-mission is $500.

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

Just southeast of the City Scrap entrance and near the small railroad bridge
is a Bover '64 (Hovercraft). Entering it will trigger the "Haiti Hover Race".

This is another Checkpoint Race and you need to beat the best time of 1:45 to
win. The hovercraft can be a bit tricky to control and it is also a bit
fragile.

Make small movements with the Left Analog Stick and use the Handbrake to slow
it down a little bit to make cornering easier.

The course will wind through Little Haiti, go near where you started and end
in Little Havana. Successful completion of this race will net you $500. If
you do this race again then you need to beat your best time to win.

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

Behind the Clubhouse (near the Tennis Courts) for Leaf Links Golf Club is a
parked Caddy. Entering the Caddy will trigger the "Caddy Daddy" Checkpoint
Race.

You have to do three laps through the Golf Club (in a figure-8 configuration)
and you have to beat the target time of six minutes. I found this to be a
pretty easy race.

Successful completion of this race will get you $2,500.

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

| IV.18. "Playground at the Point"                                   [PLNT] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

At the southwest part of North Point Mall you will find a PCJ-600 parked
against the wall. Getting on it will trigger the "Playground at the Point"
Checkpoint Race.

You have 1:30 to collect all of the Checkpoints and the timer starts when you
pick up the first one. Start with the ones near the wall to your left then
turn back and get the ones near the planters.

Care must be taken when you go through the hole in the wall to get to the
street. If you hit it too fast then you will wreck.

The trickiest part is jumping onto the roof of a nearby building. If you go
up the ramp too slow then you will hit the wall and fly off into the street.

Hit it too fast and you will over-jump the roof and land in the street. A
suggestion, before doing this race, is to take another PCJ-600 and practice
jumping onto this roof so you can get a feel on how to to it properly.

When on the rooftop then hang a right and follow along the roof picking up
Checkpoints. Get off the roof at the southwest corner and head to the front
entrance of the Ducum Inn. Pick up the Checkpoint there and go behind the Inn
to pick up the rest and complete the race.

Successful completion of this race will earn you $500. You can do this race
again but you will get no money and you must beat your best time to win.

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

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

At the Ocean Beach Parking Garage (first level southeast side) you will find
a parked PCJ-600. Climbing onto it will trigger the "Playground on the Park"
Checkpoint Race. This is the last of the four "Playground" races found in
Vice City Stories.

You have 1:10 to collect all of the Checkpoints and the timer starts when you
pick up the first one. Follow the first ones, zigzagging around the poles.
Then go around the edge and up the ramp. Hang a right and go around the ramp
getting all the Checkpoints before going up to the next level.

From there, head left but slow down going around the ramped corner. When you
get down then get some speed and head for the ramp that will get you to the
overhang. Get down from there after collecting the Checkpoint and align
yourself with the next ramp.

Back up a little bit then gun the engine and go. You should get onto the
building across the street. Continue forward at a fast speed and you should
be able to get the remaining rooftop Checkpoints.

Once back on the ground then it is smooth sailing from here since the
remaining three Checkpoints are pretty easy to get.

Successful completion of this race will earn you $500. You can do this race
again but you will get no money and you must beat your best time to win.

| IV.20. "Vice Sights"                                               [VCSG] |
0===========================================================================0
 \=========================================================================/

East of the Main Terminal at the Airport is a Maverick helicopter. Entering
it will trigger the "Vice Sights" side-mission.

In this side-mission you have to fly to designated markers so your passengers
can take pictures. You also have a limited amount of time to get to the
markers.

Underneath the time is a Fun Meter. You can't let the meter go down too much
or you will fail. The best way to keep the meter full is to fly fast and low.

When you get to a marker then you need to slow down and press the L3 Buutton
when you get to it. You need to hover for a few seconds to let your
passengers take pictures.

When they are done then you need to fly to the next marker and do the same
thing. When you finish the last marker then you need to go back to the
Airport to collect your payment. This ends a level.

There are five levels to complete and when they are done successfully you
will earn $500.

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

Just southeast of the Main Terminal of the Airport at the the end of the
northeast to southwest runway is a Biplane. Entering it will trigger the
"Crims On Wings" Checkpoint Race.

You have four minutes to complete the checkpoint course that winds through
Viceport, Downtown, Little Haiti, Little Havana, and ends near where you
began.

Although this biplane has better handling than the Stuntplane you used in
San Andreas, it still requires a delicate touch. Make gentle movements with
the stick and you should be fine.

You can also use the L2 and R2 Buttons to adjust the rudder to make turning
easier. For low markers just clip the tops of them.

Successful completion of this race will earn you $500. If you do this race
again then you will need to beat your best time to win.

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

Inside an open hangar at the southwest part of the Airport tarmac is a
Biplane. Entering it will trigger the "Hyman Memorial O.D.T" multi-vehicle
Checkpoint Race. You have to beat the best time of 4:50 to win.

Use the L2 Button to align the Biplane with the runway as you gain speed for
takeoff. This part of the course goes through Little Havana, Little Haiti,
Downtown, and heads back towards Little Haiti.

When you get near The Compound Safehouse then you need to switch to the
Squallo below. Fly above the boat and then jump from the plane. You should
land close to the boat which will save you valuable time.

When you are in the boat then you will weave through several checkpoints and
head toward Hyman Memorial Stadium. At the south part of the parking lot you
will hit a ramp which will send the boat flying. Jump from the boat while in
the air then head to the parked PCJ-600 to complete the rest of the course.

When you are on the bike then you will go around the stadium, through the
northern part of Downtown, back to the stadium and end in front of the ticket
window. The hard part here is trying to avoid traffic which seems to be heavy
in the northern part of Downtown.

Successful completion of this race will earn you $500. If you do this race
again then you will need to beat your best time to win.

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

At The Waterhouses south of the Vice City Marina you will find a Bover '64
(Hovercraft). Entering the hovercraft will trigger the "Harbor Hover Race"
Checkpoint Race. You have to beat the best time of 3:45 in order to win.

The first part of this course is the hardest. This is because you have to
jump through the Vice City Marina area.

The hard to control nature of this craft plus the jumps (and seemingly picky
Checkpoints) makes this challenging. You have to line yourself with the ramps
and hit them at fast speed to make the first jump onto the pier.

The second ramp is a bit easier to hit than the first because you are going
in a straight line from the other pier. Once you get out of the Vice City
Marina then it becomes easier.

The course from this point goes through Leaf Links Golf Club then you have to
drive onto and through Starfish Island. Try to avoid traffic to keep from
losing time and damaging the hovercraft.

Once back on water then you will head toward the Vice City Marina for another
jump then out into open water and toward The Waterhouses to complete the
course.

Despite the harder nature of the course (as compared to the "Haiti Hover
Race") you have plenty of time to complete the race. I missed a couple of
Checkpoints forcing me to backtrack and I still beat the race.

Successful completion of this race will earn you $500. If you do this race
again then you will need to beat your best time to win.

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

After completion of the mission "The Audition" (Lance Vance) then you opened
up the Civil Asset Forfeiture Impound car collection side-quest. I decided to
wait until I opened up Vice City Beach before going into this.

This place, located just west of the Viceport Pay 'N' Spray, confiscates all
kinds of vehicles associated with drug crimes and without burden of proof.
They will post the list of vehicles they want by the front gate, all in the
name of law and order, and you'll be rewarded for getting the vehicles they
want.

There are four lists total. Three are for land vehicles and one is for boats.

The land vehicles are deposited by the front gates and the boats are
deposited in the boat hangar at the southern part of the facility. You can
actually collect boats and land vehicles simultaneously but you need to
finish one list of land vehicles before doing another.

Each list has eight vehicles for a total of thirty two. Each list presented
here will list the vehicles top to bottom as are presented on the wall near
the front gate or boat hangar steps. Next to each vehicle name is the reward
amount as well as locations of the listed vehicle.

Whenever you enter a vehicle that is on the current vehicle list you will be
given a notification in the upper left corner of the Main Screen.

Each time you complete a list you will be given $500 which will be attached
to the reward of the last vehicle on the list. When you complete all four
lists then you will earn free re-sprays at all Pay 'N' Sprays and another
step toward 100% Completion.

It is recommended that you do the boats list first because most of the boats
listed are VERY slow, especially the Reefer. Most of these boats are some of
the slowest vehicles in the GTA universe. Once you complete the boat list
then everything should speed up.

Now for the vehicle lists (complete with rewards):

| Overview \
0=======================>

  Vic brags to Martinez about ripping off the coke from him but Jerry reveals
  to Vic that he was just the middleman and that the coke actually belonged
  to The Mendez Brothers. Martinez plans to turn states evidence and ruin
  everybody.

  However, Lance plans to sell the coke, buy the Feds and deal with The 
  Mendez Brothers. He has also lined up a buyer.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  Shotgun (provided), Katana (provided).

0==========0
| Prep Work \
0=======================>

  None.

0======0
| Notes \
0=======================>

  None.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  You need to get to North Point Mall in six minutes. Along the way Lance
  informs Vic that the buyer is a director of low-grade movies and is
  shooting one at the mall.

  When you get there then you find that the director needs a stuntman for the 
  next scene. Lance recommends Vic for the part. The part requires Vic to 
  shoot at zombies being used in a B-grade horror film.

  You need to fill the Gore Meter by shooting the zombies. Don't let the Gore
  Meter run out before the timer, which starts at one minute (the length of
  the scene), runs out.

  The meter will slowly empty over time but will empty faster if the zombies 
  get too close. You are in a booth with a female actor and you are both 
  wielding Shotguns.

  This part is pretty easy. Just keep aiming and shooting. One shot will put 
  down a zombie.

  After that scene is completed then you need to shoot another scene. You are 
  in front of the record store and you need to fend off the zombies with a
  Katana for a minute and a half.

  You need to keep them from entering the store. Again, not too hard.

  Go up to the closest zombie, target him and swing. The zombies are pretty 
  weak so one good slash should do him in. Go up to the closest zombies and 
  kill them. Then go to the next group and do the same. Repeat until the 
  scene is finished.

  When the scene is finished then you need to take Lance back to his 
  apartment. But, when they get back, then they find that their mother has 
  run off with their coke and that they are both screwed.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=======================>

  $850 plus the Pastel Suit Outfit is available at all Safehouses.

  In addition, you get a message from Spitz suggesting they see Reni 
  Wassulmaier at the Film Studios and another message from Lance. For now, 
  let's continue with Lance's missions.....

| Overview \
0=======================>

  In retaliation for stealing their coke, The Mendez Brothers begin attacking
  your businesses.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  M249.

0==========0
| Prep Work \
0=======================>

  You need to have five businesses before doing this mission. However, in
  doing things in the order presented in this guide, then you should have 
  most of the businesses taken over so this should be no problem.

0======0
| Notes \
0=======================>

  None.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  The goons will attack the nearest business to you. Lance will go there to
  help defend the empire. You also need to keep Lance alive or the mission
  will be failed.

  The M249 is the best weapon to use here. You can kill the attackers quickly
  and easily with it. You can also quickly blow up their cars as they
  approach.

  After you kill off the attackers then the mission is successfully 
  completed.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=======================>

  $500.

  At this point, you will get a message from The Mendez Brothers. They feel 
  that they have mutual interests with Vic and this opens up their 
  missions.....

These two highly intelligent brothers are publicly known as generous
philanthropists and have their own building near Hyman Memorial Stadium.

Privately though, they are also one of the biggest coke dealers in Vice City.
Their intelligence allows them to quietly do their business with few
problems.

Armando is talkative and presents himself well. Diego is very quiet and
limits himself to a few words when communicating with others.

Their missions can be found at their home on Prawn Island.....

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

  After Vic and Lance are made partners, against their will, with The Mendez

  "Martinez" and the Mendez's want this to be proven now.....

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Lance figures that Vic can take pictures of Martinez with the Feds and even
  make it look like that he is an undercover cop similar to Forbes.

  Go to the Washington Beach Police Station. You are also given a Camera for
  this mission.

  When you see the spot then drive past it and to the next intersection then 
  turn the car around so you are pointing north. Then exit the car and walk 
  into the marker.

  You are told to take a good photo of Martinez and the Agent before they
  leave. Go to the vantage point and zoom in real close to the car and take
  the picture. When you have done that then you need to follow the car.

  Go back to your car which is in perfect position for you to follow him.
  Don't get too close or you will fail the mission. When they get to Vice 
  City Marina then you need to take another photo of Martinez. Get to the 
  Vantage Point and zoom in as close as possible to take another photo.

  After that then you will get a cutscene. Next, you need to get to Lance's
  Apartment to get Forbes' DEA ID but you now have a 4-Star Wanted Rating.

  First thing to do is to get rid of the Wanted Rating. But don't take the 
  Cheetah. It's a Police Cheetah and the Pay 'N' Spray won't touch that.

  Take the car you came here with and quickly get to the Ocean Beach Pay 'N' 
  Spray to get rid of the Rating then go to Lance's Apartment.

  From there, head to the Print Works. When you get there then the mission is 
  successfully completed.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=======================>

  No money but you get to keep the Camera.

If the Sharks did NOT have a Drug Business for you to take over earlier, so
you could add the Business Type to your list of businesses, then take over
one Biker Drug Business to prevent a potential bug (which may be related to
completion percentage).

After acquiring that one Biker Business then convert it to a Drug Business
for now.

If you already have a Drug Business, taken from the Sharks, then you can just
ignore this advice and proceed to the next mission.

  After being promoted then Vic has to deal with some people who have been
  ripping off The Mendez Brothers.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Head to the Empire Site across the street south of Shady Palms Hospital. 
  This is the Empire Site that did not have a vehicle spawn (so you couldn't 
  take it over earlier). This mission will finally have you taking over this 
  site.

  When you get to the Empire Site then you have to kill the Bikers. Stop at 
  the signal light at the southwest part of Shady Palms Hospital.

  Get on the sidewalk and use the Sniper Rifle to pick off the Bikers you can 
  get at from this point. The reason for staying by the light is because, at 
  this distance, the Bikers will just stand there thus making them easy 
  targets.

  When you get all but those who have clustered at the front of the building
  then head east along the sidewalk (stay against the wall of the Hospital) 
  and stop at the next light. Look south and kill the Bikers who are just
  standing there.

  You will get another biker to generate on the roof so head back to the 
  other signal light and pick him off to end the first half of this mission.

  In the second half, the Bikers will flee north toward North Point Mall. 
  Just get on one of the parked bikes, get behind them and use the SMG to 
  quickly kill all of the Bikers, by forward drive-bying, to successfully 
  complete the mission.

  It should be noted that even though you have taken over a Biker owned
  business they will not attack you. They only attack when you take over a
  business outside of a mission.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=======================>

  $1,000.

  In addition, you get another message from Lance but I will finish up with 
  The Mendez Brothers first. However, there's one piece of business that 
  needs to be done first....

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

Now that you have finally taken over the Empire Site near Shady Palms
Hospital it is time to take over the remaining Biker owned businesses.
Whatever business type that you didn't get from the Sharks (Robbery,
Smuggling) you need to get from the Bikers.

Convert the Biker businesses to Small-Time (regardless of type) to reduce
their attacks. When you have taken over the last Biker business then
Save/Reload to remove the Bikers from the game.

Repair your businesses then do any Reputation Missions (Drugs, Robbery,
Smuggling) you haven't done. Convert at least one Drug, one Smuggling and one
Robbery business to High Roller to earn the Outfits (if you haven't done so
already).

When you have all thirty Empire Sites under your control then you will gain
Bulletproof vehicles at your businesses and take another step toward 100%
Completion. Another step toward 100% Completion will be gained by obtaining
all seven Outfits related to Empire Building.

If you want then you can convert all thirty businesses to Robbery (High
Roller) businesses and earn the maximum pay of $126,000 per day.

And this completes Empire Building for Vice City Stories.

Now back to the Main Story.....

| Overview \
0=======================>

  Armando wants Vic to kill some crooks who are copying their methods of
  business. They can be found near Ocean Beach.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  M249, Sniper Rifle, Molotovs, AK-47, Rocket Launcher.

0==========0
| Prep Work \
0=======================>

  If you wish to use Molotovs then you should do the Firetruck Mission to 
  get the Fireproof Feature.

0======0
| Notes \
0=======================>

  Got some useful advice from James Ollinger.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  The first one is relaxing at his place in central Vice Point south of El
  Casa Swanko. Go to El Casa Swanko and go up the stairs on the west terrace.
  Go near the end of the terrace and you should see the drug runner and his
  bodyguards. Pick them off with the Sniper Rifle.

  After that then go to the next drug runner at Standing Vice Point Hotel. 
  When you get there then you are ambushed by his female bodyguards.

  There are a lot of them to kill and you are confined to the pool area. Kill 
  the one ahead of you then head to the diving board area killing those near 
  it.

  Climb about halfway and use the AK-47 to get those within range. Use the 
  Molotovs on the one above you and on those near the diving board.

  Being up here will give you a fighting chance against your attackers as 
  well as set you up for the next step in this mission. Try to use the 
  Molotovs on those below you so you can stay on the diving boards.

  When you kill the last attacker then you will see the drug runner setting
  himself up for a getaway. You only have about twenty seconds or so before 
  he runs off so you need to act quickly.

  Go up to the highest board, switch to the Rocket Launcher, aim at the drug 
  runner and fire a couple of rockets to blow him up and end the mission 
  successfully.

  If he runs off before you can fire on him then you will fail the mission 
  because you won't be able to get down and chase him in time.

  Then there is this info from James Ollinger:

     "At the pool, immediately run back to the stairs that lead down to the 
      beach, because the girls won't follow. Then you can lob molotovs or 
      grenades inside to knock out some, and step back inside quickly to mow 
      targets down with your machine guns. You can also stand on the stairway 
      and take out the girls on the diving board with a sniper rifle.

      No matter what happened, I found that my armor was always gone by the 
      time the pool was cleared. Even if I picked up the health icon, I'd 
      still get killed during the dune buggy chase, so I found this:

      When you're down to one girl left alive at the pool, go down the stairs 
      and leave the area. You can pick up one of the body armors that's 
      laying around Vice City. You get a warning to "go back and finish them 
      off" but the game mission won't be forfeited by leaving the area. Get 
      the armor and you'll be back up to full strength. Then finish off the 
      last girl, and you'll be able to take more damage during the dune buggy 
      chase."

  As for the chase itself, the dealer will be on a Quad-Bike and you need to 
  chase him on one too, provided nearby. One of his bodyguards will be 
  shooting at you from the back of the Quad. But you can forward drive-by to 
  kill her.

  Then the dealer will start throwing Grenades. Still, you can kill him 
  before he can do too much damage.

  However, if he manages to evade your attacks, then you will also have to 
  deal with a helicopter with a couple of attackers chasing you. But you are 
  a moving target which makes it harder for them to hit you so I would just 
  focus on the drug runner.

  When you kill him, using the forward drive-by, then the mission is 
  successfully completed.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=======================>

  $1,300.

  In addition, you'll get a Purchase Icon near where you picked up the Quad:

    >>Quad - $3,000.

  The Police has confiscated some of their merchandise and Armando needs Vic
  to steal it back.....

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Get to the Helicopter in Breaker's Yard (Junk Yard). Next you need to fly
  over the containers to retrieve the coke which is mixed in with other
  cargo. The helicopter has a magnet attached to the bottom.

  When you get to the CAFI then you need to put the magnet on the container 
  to acquire it. Then fly it to the cargo bay. When you get it there then 
  drop it into the halo.

  After that then you find that the Cops are moving the last container by 
  truck. You need to snag it off the vehicle before it gets to the Little 
  Havana Police Station.

  This is a little tricky but not too hard. Get to the truck as quickly as 
  possible then lower yourself gently while keeping up with the truck and 
  place the magnet on top of the container. Then take it back to the cargo 
  bay.

  When you do that then you find that you ally is being attacked by the 
  Bikers. Now you need to grab his car before he is killed. And he is all the 
  way in Washington Beach.

  This is the hard part. He is being chased by Bikers and he is driving fast. 
  And the magnet is picky on placement. And he has a Damage Meter.

  But he always goes the same route no matter how many times you try this
  mission. Use this to your advantage. He will start in Ocean Beach and head
  north through Washington Beach.

  The best thing to do is head toward the Empire Site north of 1102 
  Washington Street. When you get there then you need to hover in the 
  northbound lane of the street next to the Empire Site. Rotate until you are 
  looking south and gently lower your copter until the magnet is about 
  car-roof level.

  When your ally approaches then he will run underneath your magnet and you 
  can snag him. Once you get him then take him to top of the Ocean Beach 
  Parking Garage to successfully complete the mission.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=======================>

  $1,500.

  This will end The Mendez Brothers missions for now. Let's go back to

| Overview \
0=======================>

  After Lance not-so-quietly informs Vic that their places are being bugged
  then he suggests that he knock out the Police antennae to render them
  useless.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  Molotovs, Rocket Launcher.

0==========0
| Prep Work \

  None.

0======0
| Notes \

  Made a few minor tweaks.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  You have an Evidence Meter that fills up as the DEA collects evidence
  against you so you need to act quickly.

  Head to the Ocean Beach Ammu-Nation. You cannot skip the Ammu-Nation.
  Collect a free Rocket Launcher from the storekeeper which will cause you to
  lose your M249 (unless you already have a Rocket Launcher). You HAVE to get
  the Rocket Launcher in order to progress.

  Next, go to the Washington Beach Police Station and destroy the two
  antennae on the roof using the Molotovs. This will slow down the Evidence
  Meter as it will take them longer to collect evidence.

  However, you will also get a 2-Star Wanted Rating. Kill the two Cops near 
  the helipad then enter the Police chopper.

  Next, fly to the Little Havana Police Station. Land in the area between the
  two antennae. Switch to your Rocket Launcher and take down the approaching
  Police helicopter sent to attack you.

  Switch back to the Molotovs and destroy the two antennae. Now your Wanted 
  Level goes up to 4-Stars.

  Next, fly to the Downtown Police Station. Land north of one of the
  antennae. Use the Molotovs (and your other weapons) to take down ALL of the 
  SWAT team first (and rocket any airborne Police choppers) then take down 
  the antennae. By getting rid of all of the Police on the roof first then 
  you will make the next part a bit easier.

  The good news is that you have now stopped the DEA from collecting
  evidence. The bad news is that you have a 5-Star Wanted Rating and you need
  to get rid of it before you can complete the mission.

  The best way I found is to use the nearby Police Maverick helicopter and
  fly out to Links View Heights and land near the small garage. There is a 
  PCJ-600 parked against the main building nearby.

  Get on the bike and make a quick dash to the Vice Point Pay 'N' Spray next 
  door to successfully complete the mission.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=======================>

  $300.

  In addition, you'll get a message from Reni telling you he has a lucrative 
  contract for you. He is the only mission strand left so we must go do his 
  missions now.

  Also, the Rocket Launcher is now available at the Ocean Beach Ammu-Nation.

Reni is a very weird, strangely behaving, gender-bender director. His primary
work is in commercials but they tend to be badly done due to his habits which
includes his love for cocaine. This also means that he has quite a few
contacts that Vic can use to unload his stuff.

Interglobal Studios is where you can find his missions starting with.....

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Get in the stunt vehicle then drive to the start line. Hit stunt cars to
  keep the action high or you will fail the mission.

  You also need to follow the route and keep the timer from running out. Each
  checkpoint you hit will give ten seconds of time. The stunt cars are 
  similar to your car and easy to hit. Don't go out of your way to hit them. 
  Both the checkpoints and cars will show up on your radar.

  You will also do some jumps but they are easy to do. The last stunt will
  put you into an office building and will successfully complete the mission.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=======================>

  $850.

  And this will activate the following side-mission.....

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

At the southwest area of Interglobal Films near one of the studios is a
Coach. Entering it will trigger the "Crash!" side-mission.

This is exactly like the "Rush!" side-mission that is found in Vice Point.
The rules and scoring are the same.

In this side-mission need to cause $2,000 worth of damage in three minutes.
However, the Coach is more fragile than the Linerunner you used in "Rush!".
It is also prone to being flipped on end when hitting vehicles so care must
be taken when trying to knock out cars.

But there is a way to earn at least $900 before leaving the Interglobal Films
lot. When you get there, in a car, then shoot up both the parked Deluxo and
Caddy until they are really smoking and sparking. Do the same to the car you
drove up on.

When you start the side-mission then simply smash up these three cars until
you get the Car Destroyed and the $300 you get per vehicle for doing that.
This makes the rest of the side-mission much easier because you only have to
worry about getting $1,100 now.

After getting out of the Interglobal Films lot then head into Downtown across
North Bridge (West) and turn left at the next three-way intersection to find
and destroy cars.

When you get past $2,000 then stop hitting cars so you won't risk destroying
the Coach before finishing.

  Go to the meeting point in Downtown. Gonzalez will inform you that he needs
  to get his boss's (Colonel Juan Garcia Cortez) stuff safely to Viceport.

  Next, get in the Sea Sparrow. You must protect Gonzalez from the air and he
  has a Damage Meter you cannot let fill up. But you also have the help of
  two of his men who will sit on the Sea Sparrow's pontoons.

  Just stay a little bit behind Gonzalez and let the two men shoot
  everything. They are accurate, effective, and will keep Gonzalez from 
  taking too much damage. They will even shoot the helicopter that will 
  appear when nearing Viceport.

  When you get near the boat garage then the mission is successfully 
  completed. At this point, Vic offers himself to help Gonzalez but he can't 
  trust him until he finds out who leaked information to those who attacked 
  him.

  Go and get the Bulletproof Limo in east Vice Point. After acquiring the
  Limo then go to the meeting point in a park at Washington Beach not far 
  from The Clymenus Suite Safehouse.

  When the helicopter drops off Barry's client then you are ambushed by some
  goons. Use the M249 to quickly clear them out before they kill Barry's
  client.

  It turns out that Barry's client is none other than famed singer Phil 
  Collins himself and you need to take him back to his hotel in Ocean Beach.

  The goons will give chase but can't shoot up the limo because it's 
  bulletproof. But they can still damage it by ramming into it and spinning 
  it out.

  In addition, they can shoot you through your open window and take chunks 
  off of your armor. They have also left some roadblocks along the way but 
  you can easily avoid them on the way to the hotel. Don't try to shoot at 
  them, just focus on the driving.

  When you get to the hotel then the mission is successfully completed.

  In addition, you'll get a Purchase Icon at at Sunshine Autos:

  Head to the Jetski parked at the northwest part of the studio. You are to
  take part in a fast-paced water chase sequence.

  Follow the course. The cameras will start rolling when you reach the first 
  marker. You have about fifteen seconds to reach the next marker. The faster 
  you go the more time you can accumulate when you collect markers.

  You'll need to make a few jumps through Leaf Links Golf Club but it is not 
  too hard. However, if you go too slow and land on the grass, then you will 
  be put back so you can try it again.

  When you reach Ocean Beach then you will need to switch to a motorcycle. 
  Try to get close with the Jetski then jump off and get on the motorcycle.

  The toughest part of this section of the course is going through the bushes 
  near Ocean Beach Hospital. When you get back on the road then the rest is 
  fairly easy.

  When you reach the green marker then the mission is completed successfully.

On the small dock at the northwest part of Interglobal Films is a Jetski.
Getting on it after completion of the mission "Say Cheese" (Reni Wassulmaier)
will trigger the "Watersports" Checkpoint Races.

There are a total of eight races and they are all three laps in length. You
need to beat the target time in order to unlock the next race.

A good way to improve your time is to go around ramps to get the checkpoints
whenever possible. It takes longer to use the ramps because you slow down
when you hit the water. There are some ramps you cannot avoid (because the
checkpoint is on the ramp or the channel is too narrow).

Listed below are the eight races with times and course description:

  >>Course 1 - 2:45 - Around Prawn Island.
  >>Course 2 - 3:30 - Around Starfish Island.
  >>Course 3 - 3:20 - Around and through Leaf Links Golf Club.
  >>Course 4 - 2:45 - Around the north part of Leaf Links Golf Club. 
  >>Course 5 - 3:45 - Through the south part of Leaf Links Golf Club, 
                      Washington Beach and Vice Point.
  >>Course 6 - 6:30 - Through Leaf Links Golf Club, Washington Beach and 
                      Vice Point.
  >>Course 7 - 5:00 - Through the middle of Leaf Links Golf Club, 
                      Washington Beach and Vice Point.
  >>Course 8 - 6:30 - Around Leaf Links Golf Club, Vice Point and 
                      Washington Beach.

Successful completion of all eight races will get you $2,500 and the Wet Suit
Outfit at all Safehouses.

  When you start the mission then press the X Button to set your shot's

  press the X Button again to set the accuracy. The closer to the green 
  section, the better.

  After you make your shot then Gonzalez will make his. Then it will be your
  turn again.

  You have five attempts to hit the buoy. If you don't hit the buoy after
  your fifth attempt then Gonzalez will hit the buoy which will explode
  killing the associate and resulting in a mission failure.

  If you hit the buoy before Gonzalez does then you will successfully
  complete the mission.

  And this opens up the Swinger's Club side-mission. You will also gain a

  Slot.

  Lance will also give you a buzz concerning that Sgt. Jerry Martinez has
  split from witness protection. This will also open up Lance's missions

This driving range side-mission is found at the Driving Range at Leaf Links

Each meter is one point and 50 additional points are given for hitting the
buoy. If you get over 500 points then the mission is successfully completed.

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

  Head to Gonzalez's lock-up which is in Ocean Beach across the street from
  Washington Beach Apartments. Get in the van and take it to the deal.

  When you get there then the van is ambushed by a Linerunner which knocks 
  Vic out of the van. Some of the coke is also knocked out of the van and 
  covers Vic who inhales some of it while unconscious.

  When Vic awakens then you find that he has become high off of the coke he
  inhaled. You'll get a message from Gonzalez telling you to call him.

  You need to get to the nearby phone. You'll also notice that the screen is
  messed up from Vic being high. Vic is woozy and the screen bobs, weaves
  and slows down.

  When you talk to Gonzalez then he'll tell you to kill the goons that did 
  this, recover the drugs and take them back to the lock-up. Take the nearby 
  bike and head to Starfish Island. You have four and a half minutes to 
  recover the remainder of the drugs.

  When you get to the party then you need to kill the gang. But, in the 
  process, you will get a 2-Star Wanted Rating.

  When you kill the gang then get back in the van. Now you need to get it 
  back to the lock-up but you have to contend with the Cops and the swerving 
  and wooziness because of your condition.

  The best route is turn right at the Starfish Apartment Complex and go south
  then turn left at the three-way intersection just past the bridge. Then 
  turn right at the next intersection and head south toward the lock-up.

  When you get there then the mission will be successfully completed.

  The stage area is a tough place to navigate so get off the bike at the base
  of the ramp and use the M249 to clear the area before moving on to the
  other locations.

  When you kill the last hitman then he will drop a keycard for the basement.

  there will be another group by the Moist Palms Hotel Construction Site.

  miss too many of them then the mission is failed.

  After going across the bridge then you will drop off a hill and into the

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Go to King Knuts (Little Haiti). When you get there then you are ambushed 
  and Louise is kidnapped.

  Kill the goons ahead of you with the M249 and find which car Louise is in
  before she dies. They cars are parked in Downtown.

  You need to kill some of the goons near the cars so you can get close 
  enough to determine if Louise is in it (and you will end up with a 2-Star 
  Wanted Rating while doing so). Of course, Louise will always be in the last 
  car you get to. So, save the car near the Hyman Condo for last.

  When you approach the car near the Hyman Condo area then kill the first 
  goon and move the pickup truck out of the way before continuing to her car.
  This will make it easier to get out of the area considering that you need
  to avoid the Cops (thanks to the Wanted Rating).

  You need to enter the car before she dies. When you finally enter the car
  then you need to take her to Schuman Healthcare Center before she expires. 
  This is the reason why you leave the car near the Hyman Condo last - so you 
  will be at the closest point to the Hospital.

  Get back onto the road next to the Hyman Condo and quickly head south to
  the pink circle, while avoiding the Cops, to successfully complete the
  mission.

  You'll get another threatening message from Martinez who wants to hurt

Ricardo Diaz is one of the major crime lords in the Vice City area. He is
also a major competitor to The Mendez Brothers. Naturally, Ricardo wants to
own all of the action in the city.

He has five missions and they can be found at The Mansion at the south side
of Starfish Island.

  Stakeout the Strip Club (which will become The Pole Position Club in "Grand 
  Theft Auto: Vice City") in south Ocean Beach. When you get there then you 
  see one of Gonzalez's men leave the Club. Follow him but don't get too 
  close.

  After awhile then he'll exit the car near The Fairgrounds. Get on the 
  JetSki and follow him. He'll take you to The Waterhouses south of The 
  Docks.

  You need to get on the boat that has the stash. Look out for the sentries.
  Get up onto the walkways and eliminate everybody with the M249.

  If you try to go up to the boat and quickly switch from the JetSki to it, 
  it won't work. The sentries will destroy it before you have a chance to 
  clear the area. So it is best to kill the sentries before trying to get the 
  boat.

  When the sentries are gone then get in the boat and take it back to The 
  Mansion. You'll be chased but the goons will be far behind so they will be
  no trouble to you. When you reach The Mansion then the mission will be 
  successfully completed.

  Reader Justin Loke came up with this alternate method that may be useful:

     "I did up to the point where sniping all of Gonzalez's Snipers and the 
      cutscene. When the truck appears, get into the truck. Gonzalez's 
      attacking cars will shoot at the truck, but I completely ignore the 
      attacking cars and head straight for the Pay N' Spray in Little Havana. 
      (it's near one of the Empire Sites.) Parked the truck inside, got out 
      and switched to M249. Use the M249 to eliminate Gonzalez's goons and 
      attacking cars.

      By doing this, I must have gained 2-3 stars. I get back into the truck, 
      which automatically resprays my car, clearing wanted levels and fixing 
      any damage that the goons have done. Even though there's another goon 
      blocking the bridge to Starfish Island, i ran over him, making the 
      mission easier. Then headed to Diaz's Mansion to complete."

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Get in the Van. Go to the meeting point in Downtown.

  As usual, you are ambushed (seriously, when are you *NOT* ambushed in this
  game?) by Gonzalez's men. You need to use a Sniper Rifle and kill the
  snipers surrounding the area.

  Although there is a Sniper Rifle provided for you, you won't need it if you 
  brought one before going into this mission. You have a limited amount of 
  time to kill the snipers and protect Diaz's men from getting killed.

  Jump on the car to get a better vantage point to kill the snipers. I
  usually start at the southwest part then go in a counterclockwise direction
  picking off the snipers as I go (the red arrows in the scope will help you
  find them quickly).

  After killing the snipers (and completing the small cutscene) then you need 
  to get into the truck and take it back to Diaz's. Wait for the 1-Star 
  Wanted Rating to go away before entering the truck (and switch to the M249 
  while standing there).

  But Gonzalez's men won't give up that easily. You'll be ambushed (again)
  upon leaving the parking lot. For a big truck it is fragile and the
  attackers can shred it quickly.

  The moment your passenger mentions "here they come" then stop and back up 
  into the parking lot. Get out, head to the street and use the M249 on the
  attacking cars.

  If you didn't wait for the 1-Star Wanted Rating to disappear before 
  entering the truck then you may get a 2-Star Wanted Rating if you destroy 
  both cars too quickly and the Cops are just as bad at screwing up this 
  mission as the attackers. Also you need to avoid shooting anything else 
  besides the cars to help keep the Wanted Ratings down.

  Then go back to the truck, go back into the street, head north toward Hyman
  Memorial Stadium and go south along the grassy beach area and toward The
  Compound Safehouse. Go around The Compound Safehouse and around the City 
  Scrap area. Instead of heading south onto the small railroad bridge go onto 
  the road that leads to the City Scrap and head into Little Haiti.

  Head down the streets, heading southeast and back onto the main road 
  (Bayshore Avenue). Then head south toward Starfish Island. The only 
  attacker left to worry about is the one waiting for you at the entrance and 
  you can just ignore him.

  When you get to The Mansion then you need to park the truck in the garage 
  and walk out to successfully complete the mission.

  This will end Diaz's missions for now but you'll get a message from

  You are in a helicopter and you use the provided M249 to protect him. This
  is also the same fragile truck you had to drive in the previous mission.

  The attackers will start to appear as he is leaving Starfish Island. Work
  quickly to destroy the attackers (the Sharks) before they can do much
  damage.

  Then, around the South Bridge, he will stall and you must protect him. This
  is where the attackers can do the most damage.

  Blow them up as quickly as possible as they appear. After that then destroy 
  the road block ahead and any other attackers that follow.

  When he gets to the Airport then you must help the guards repel the
  attackers as the plane is being loaded up. After destroying several cars
  then you must protect the other entrance and do the same thing. Then you go
  back to the other entrance and protect it again.

  But the Sharks get in the Airport anyway and you must protect the plane as
  it takes off. However, they can do little damage as they chase it.

  Destroy them anyway just to make sure. When the plane takes off then the 
  mission is successfully completed.

  Got some information from Tom Hayter.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  There is a Pressure Meter that fills up over time. You need to shoot three
  valves (shown as green dots on the radar) to turn off the fuel before the
  place explodes.

  However, when you start, then you will have no weapons. But, as Tom Hayter 
  pointed out, if you turn around, then you will find your weapons up against 
  the wall and around the corner. Quickly go back and get your weapons and 
  then to the pink circle. Switch to your M249 and kill any gunman you 
  encounter.

  You also have to deal with a helicopter that has two gunmen that will shoot
  at you as you try to do turn off the fuel so keep moving. However, you can
  shoot the gunmen but I wouldn't spend too much time dealing with them, just
  focus on the other gunmen and the valves.

  There are a couple of gunmen that are using Sniper Rifles so you may want 
  to use yours and take them down before they can do too much damage.

  When you shoot the last valve then jump on the PCJ-600, get Lance and leave
  before the Pressure Meter completely fills up.

  When you do that then the mission is completed successfully.....and you 
  will be at war with The Mendez Brothers.

0=======0
| Reward \

  No money.

  In addition, there will be no more missions from The Mendez Brothers but

  You need to have seven businesses before doing this mission. However, in

  None.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  The Mendez's will hit three of your closest businesses. You have eight
  minutes to defend the three businesses. Go to the closest business.

  When you arrive then use the M249 or Mini-Gun as those weapons makes very 
  quick work of the goons. Most of them will be on foot but some of them will 
  come in cars. You also need to protect Lance just like you had to do in the
  first "Blitzkrieg" mission.

  When you successfully defend the first business then go to the second
  business and do the same thing. When you successfully defend the second
  business then go to the third business and protect it like the other two.

  When you successfully defend the third business then the mission will be
  successfully completed.

  Head to the Schuman Healthcare Center. When you get there then you will

  suggests using the helicopter on the roof.

  Go to the hospital roof and enter the helicopter. Then fly out to Lance who
  is in Vice Point.

  He is on the roof of a hotel and you have about thirty seconds to land and 
  rescue him. You then find out that Lance was set up by Martinez and lured 
  Vic away with Louise so Vic couldn't help Lance. They also took everything 
  but now Lance wants to get it back.

  Head out to sea and deal with Martinez's goons. Lance will fire from the
  helicopter so watch the balance (similar to the mission "Taking the Fall"
  (Lance Vance)). Keep the goons to the right so Lance can shoot them and
  stay at the same speed as their boats.

  When they are all gone then you need to get close to the big Tropic boat so
  Lance can retrieve the money. After that then take Louise home. When you 
  land the chopper then the mission will be successfully completed.

  You need to keep Mendez's goons from searching the Interglobal Films lot
  and discover Reni gone. You should use the M249 and go from entrance to
  entrance shooting goons.

  But Reni will be discovered anyway and he is holed up at the apartment
  complexes north of the Malibu Club. You have a limited amount of time
  before Reni is killed.

  When you get there then you need to kill the goons surrounding him. Once 
  you do that then you need to drive him over to Ocean View Hospital.

  But Mendez's goons won't give up that easily and will give chase. They have 
  an annoying habit of running into your car and shooting out your tires as 
  you try to get around them.

  This is why you should have a bulletproof vehicle in your Clymenus Suite
  garage. When you rescue Reni then head there and switch to your bulletproof
  vehicle.

  Even better, if you managed to acquire one, then use the Rhino. They can do 
  absolutely no harm to you or Reni while you drive him to Ocean View 
  Hospital.

  When you get to the Hospital then the mission is successfully completed. If 
  you used the Rhino then you should take it back to your garage for future 
  use.

  The mission title is a play on lyrics from the Styx song "Mr. Roboto" which
  was popular in the early '80s. You may also want to read some of the stuff
  on the upper left of the Domestobot's viewer for some humorous messages.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Go to The Mendez Brothers house and enter the Boxville. After the cutscene
  ends then you now control a Domestobot. You move it around like a car. It 
  has several arms that you can use. Switch between them by using the L2 and 
  R2 Buttons.

  There is a duster arm which is used to clean floors. The grabber arm is
  used to get objects so you can take them to Armando.

  The comms arm is used to find the safe and open it. The lighter arm is used 
  to light Armando's cigars.

  The pleasure arm is used....well...to get some interestingresponses from 
  the female guests.

  On occasion, Armando will request the robot do certain chores. Use the
  appropriate arm to do the chore. You have two minutes to do it or Armando
  will destroy the Domestobot and you will fail the mission.

  When not doing chores then you need to find the safe which is found in the
  basement. To get there, from where you start, you need to get to the first
  floor, turn right then turn left into the room near the bathroom. You need
  to go into the door on the right to enter the basement.

  When you get downstairs then go over to the safe. You now need to crack the 
  combination to open it. Switch to the comms arm to begin cracking.

  You have twenty attempts before security lockdown is initiated (and Armando
  destroys the Domestobot). You will also see four circles.

  A red circle indicates an incorrect digit. A blue circle will indicate a 
  correct digit but in wrong place. A green circle will indicate a correct 
  digit and in the right place.

  Or you can just avoid all of this by entering the correct combination of 
  8423. After you open the safe then you need switch to the lighter arm and 
  go into the pink circle to successfully complete the mission and start a 
  humorous cutscene between Armando Mendez and the Domestobot.

  A reader by the name of Josh came up with a shortcut to take Reni to the 
  Airport.

  Interesting though, the very first time I tried his suggestion the piece of 
  music that came up on the radio when I activated the chopper was "In The 
  Air Tonight" (by Phil Collins).

  And, when I jacked a car to go to the stadium, the song that came on the 
  radio was "Turn It On Again" (by Genesis). That was neat.

0=========0
| The Plan \
0=======================>

  When you start the mission then you need to get Reni to the Airport. As 
  Josh suggested, go to the Air Ambulance parked in the back of Ocean View 
  Hospital and fly to the pink circle at the Airport. If you take a car then 
  you will be attacked on the way by assassins.

  After you get to the Airport then land nearby and walk to the circle. Reni 
  will then board a plane for Europe and leave the Vice City area (and the 
  game).

  Now you need to go to Hyman Memorial Stadium. After the cutscene with Reni 
  ends then the Air Ambulance will disappear so you need to jack another car.

  However, thanks to Matt Hollis, you can run to the Maverick helicopter 
  normally used for the "Vice Sights" side-mission and fly your way to the 
  stadium.

  When you get to the stadium then you have to leave your weapons at the 
  door. You also find that Giorgio's men may try something.

  Sure enough, they are on the light rig and cutting cables which will cause
  the large light rig to fall and kill Phil Collins. You need to stop them in
  hand combat.

  Luckily they are weak and can be knocked out with a couple of punches. Stay 
  near the middle of the rig and get to the goon as quickly as possible when 
  they appear to keep them from cutting the cables.

  You'll also note a Stress Meter (which notes how much stress the rig has)
  and you'll also get a Cable Damage Meter when somebody tries to cut one.
  Focus on the goon damaging the cable first then any others attacking you.
  This should help prevent them from doing much damage.

  You'll cut to some concert footage while the mission progresses. After a
  couple of minutes then you need to stop more goons from cutting cables.

  When you get to the second scene of concert footage then the mission is 
  successfully completed.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=======================>

  $2,000.

  In addition, a Purchase Icon will now appear at Hyman Memorial Stadium:

    >>Phil Collins Concert - $6,000.

  This will end Reni's missions for good. Plus you'll get your weapons back.

  Shortly afterwards, you'll get a message from Louise and this will restart
  Lance's missions.....

  PCJ-600 parked near the tree to the east of the house and give chase.

  Use the MP5 to destroy the first car. Be careful not to hit Lance. Once you
  destroy that car then go ahead of Lance and destroy the cars as they 
  appear. This will help reduce damage on Lance.

  When Lance gets to The Mendez Brothers house then you will activate a 
  cutscene. After that then you will need to enter the house. You can go to 
  the nearby North Point Mall Ammu-Nation to get more Body Armor if you need 
  it.

  Use the Mini-Gun and head to the back of the house killing goons as you go. 
  They will continue to spawn so there is no point to completely clear out 
  the area so just head for the back entrance.

  When you enter the back entrance then you will confront Armando who has a
  Flamethrower. But, with the Fireproof Feature, he can't hurt you and the 
  Mini-Gun will cut him down in less than two seconds.

  If you don't have the Fireproof Feature then using the Mini-Gun will kill 
  him very quickly even if he flames you first. This will reduce the damage 
  he does to you.

  After killing Armando then you activate a cutscene with an injured Lance 
  and Louise. But Louise is in much worse shape and, after making a request 
  to Vic concerning her baby, she dies.

  Lance will then remark that Louise wasn't good for Vic. Man, if Lance 
  wasn't Vic's brother Vic would've, and should've, blown off Lance's head. 
  After the cutscene ends then you successfully complete the mission.

| Reward \
0=======================>

  $2,500.

  This will end Lance's missions for the game. You'll also get a message from 
  Ricardo Diaz and this will re-open his missions.....

| Overview \
0=======================>

  Ricardo wants Vic to steal an attack chopper from the air base to help get
  at Diego Mendez who is holed up in a large building in Downtown. Vic is
  also going to ask Phil Cassidy for help.....

| Weapons \
0=======================>

  M249 (1,500 rounds).

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Go to Phil's. Along the way you'll be ambushed by a car full of Mendez's
  goons and you need to destroy it before you can go any further.

  When you destroy the car and get to Phil's then he will agree to become a 
  decoy for you despite what has just happened with Louise.

  Get into Phil's Truck and head to For Baxter Air Base. When he explodes the
  truck onto the gates then you need to enter the base. Follow the prompts so 
  you can enter the place.

  Once you jump into the base then head north and go behind the barracks. 
  Kill any guard that challenges you then go to the Admin Building. Avoid the
  searchlights to keep from getting shot and having to deal with more guards.

  When you get inside then you need to get to the Control Room and open the 
  Helicopter Pad Gate.

  When you do that then you have three minutes to get the Hunter before the
  guards can take it to safety. You need to go the long way around to get at
  the chopper but the guards aren't too hard to deal with when using the 
  M249. You must still avoid the searchlights as you make your way to the 
  chopper.

  When you get to the Hunter then remove the pilot to enter the vehicle and
  quickly fly it out. From there, go to The Mansion to successfully complete 
  the mission.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=======================>

  $3,000.

  In addition, you will earn the Army Fatigues Outfit which will help you get
  back into Fort Baxter Air Base without getting shot at.

  And this will set up the last Main Story Mission.....

  With the Hunter in hand is it now it's time for the final showdown between
  Vic and Diego Mendez.....

0========0
| Weapons \
0=======================>

  Rockets (Hunter), Mini-Gun (2,000 rounds).

| The Plan \
0=======================>

  Fly to the Mendez Building in Downtown. There will be some guards on the
  upper half of the building when you approach.

  You'll also see a Damage Meter. Use the Rockets to shoot at them from a 
  safe distance to keep them from filling up the Damage Meter. First person 
  view is recommended for this part.

  Circle around the building and fire at it to get rid of the guards. Once 
  you get rid of the guards then you'll be forced to land on the roof.

  After the cutscene ends then you'll see some weapon and Body Armor icons 
  near the stairwell you need to enter. Clear out the floor below with the 
  Mini-Gun, grab the Body Armor near the copier and go to the next floor.

  Once you clear out the next floor then you'll get another cutscene and 
  you'll need to follow Diego Mendez to the higher floor.

  In this area you'll find two guards that you need to get rid of.

  After you do that then you'll get a warning to take cover from the 
  attacking helicopter. Instead of taking cover turn toward the window, enter 
  free-aim mode and blast the helicopter into oblivion with the Mini-Gun.

  After you destroy the helicopter then grab the Body Armor dropped by one of  
  the dead guards and go up to the roof.

  Once you are on the roof then you will confront both Sgt. Jerry Martinez 
  and Diego Mendez. Use one of the stairwells as cover and then pick each one 
  off as they approach you using the Mini-Gun which will kill them quickly.

  After you kill them both then you will successfully complete the mission 
  and finish the Main Story.

0=======0
| Reward \
0=======================>

  No money but the Winner's Outfit will now be available at all Safehouses.
  You will also unlock the Rhino at Fort Baxter Air Base so you can use it
  for Vigilante Missions or general mischief.

  In past GTA games you could do everything and save the last Main Story
  Mission for last before achieving 100% Completion. However, in Vice City
  Stories, completing the last Main Story Mission will activate another
  side-mission which can be found at Escobar International Airport.....

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

At the road curve near the northeast end of the South Runway at Escobar
International Airport you will find a Hunter. Getting inside it will activate
the Checkpoint Race called "Skywolf". You must beat the best time of 4:00.

Near Fort Baxter Air Base is a Checkpoint. When you go through that you then
go through another. When you go through that then you will need to destroy a
couple of drone targets. You need to destroy these targets quickly.

After you destroy these targets then you will have another Checkpoint to go
through. Then more drone targets, about four of them.

After destroying these targets then you have another Checkpoint to fly
through. Then six more drone targets including a helicopter.

From there, fly through the last Checkpoint over Fort Baxter Air Base to
complete the mission and $500.

If you want to use the Hunter for Vigilante Missions without activating the
"Skywolf" side-mission then you will need to move it away from its spot with
a large vehicle.

After you complete the "Skywolf" side-mission, and hopefully everything else
beforehand, then you should now have the elusive.....

And what do you earn for 100% Completion in Vice City Stories?.....

  >>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.

  >>You can now view most of the intros and outros of the Main Story Missions 
    using the Movie Viewer inside The Clymenus Suite Safehouse.

And that, my friends, completes the guide. I sincerely hope that this
document has helped you as much as I had fun playing the game. Now it is time
to close the guide but there is one more thing to do first.....
