Introduction -------------- Get on Martinez's Streetfighter bike, and head toward the V.I.P terminal at the Escobar International Airport. Follow the pink dot on the radar. Exit Fort Baxtar through the iron gate, which will swing open for you when you go near it. Note that you can attention a wanted level already, unlike in LCS, where you had a grace period during the first mission. If you like, you can go ahead and explore a bit first, before continuing the mission. Once you arrive at the V.I.P terminal at the airport, drive or walk into the pink marker. Watch the cutscene, where you'll get the drugs, then have your boat blown out of the water. After the cutscene, you'll be in the water. Head for the shore, while tapping the X button as fast as you can. This will let you swim faster. Note that Vic has stamina bar above his health bar on the heads up display. This will disappear once you've reached the shore. On shore, you'll notice that Vic has his pistol equipped. Shoot back at the men on the boat if you like, but you dont have to kill them to pass the mission. You'll get a message on your pager from Martinez telling you to return to Fort Baxter and hide the drugs. Walk into the gate in front of the base to get back in. Sprint to the pink marker in front of your barracks. Enter the barracks by walking into the blue marker in front of the door. After the cutscene, the mission will be complete.

As soon as you arrive, enter the pink marker. Watch the cutscene, then get into the truck with Phil. Drive down the street to the pink marker. Watch the cutscene, then get your pistol out. Shoot the two Cholos with the pink arrows above their heads, and collect their pistol ammo. Go inside the building by stepping into the blue arrow. Put your pistol away, and start attacking the two Cholos with your fists. Use circle to light punch, X to use a heavy punch, and square to block. Kill both of the Cholos in here. After the cutscene, walk outside and take one of the Cholo cars. Drive back to Fort Baxter, and devlier the cash to Martinez's billet. Reward: $100 ----------------- You can just get out of the car and do the next Martinez mission. 3.

Drive to the blip on Starfish island, and stop in the pink marker. You will arive at a party. Once the cutscene is over, shoot the two men with your pistol, or if you want to save your ammo, you can beat them up with your fists. Get back into the Stinger afterwards,and drive back to Fort Baxter. It appears that the drugs have been discovered under your bed. You have been kicked out of the army. You'll get a message on your pager from Phil, telling you he has work for you, and a place to stay. To Vic's right is a motorbike leaning against a wall. Take it, and drive to Phil's old place.

This means that there is only the Equalizer as a second choice to replace the Pistol. Money For Nothing ------------------ A term often heard in the game,"Money For Nothing" was one of the most popular songs in the 1984/1985 year. Miami Vice References ---------------------- Like the original Vice City, VCS draws much from the 1980's television show Miami Vice. The voice actor for Lance Vance played Ricardo Tubbs on the show. The cars the main characters drove around in Miami Vice are also in VCS, the Stinger and the VCPD Cheetah. Miami Vice's most noteable scene included Phil Collin's "In the Air Tonight", which is prominant in VCS. 9.FAQS ======== Q.I was having trouble saving cars in the apartment at 101 Bayshore Avenue was wondering if anyone else has had the same problem? I have a PAL version here in New Zealand. A. It appears that the garages do not work properly in Vice City Stories. Occasionally, the game will store them if you save and turn off your game right afterwards, but most of the time the cars will disappear from your garages. Update: One solution seems to be to ram the car against the wall. This is not a 100% solution. One thing that has always worked for me is to save my game at the same place my cars are saved. They have always reappeared when I checked the garage after loading. So far I have only tried this with the apartment on the second island and Phil's old house with the flamingo on the first island. If you try this and have results, please email me and let me know. Q. Also where do I find the oceanic for the civil asset forfeiture? A. The Oceanic is a 50s style car that can be found driving around Little Havana and Ocean Beach. Q. What is the code for the safe for the Domestabot mission? A. 8423 Q. Can you take over all of the gang buildings right when you get to the second island? Currently I have 29 of 30 gang buildings in my possession but at one of them, located just across the street of Shady Palms Hospital in Vice Point in possession of the bikers, doesn't have a vehicle spawn in front of it, thus not allowing me to engage in an attack to take it over. Is this suppose to happen or is it a glitch? A. That building must be taken over as part of a story mission later on. Q. how do you use multiplayer content on gta vice city stories? A. Press start to enter the menu. Scroll over to the multiplayer section, and make sure your WLAN switch is on. Q. Why do my cars always disappear when I drive them to a pink blip, after the cutscene is over and I start my mission, the car is gone. A. Parking too close to the blip will make your car disappear. Also, leaving the door open on your car will increase the chance that your car will remain in place. 10.Credits ========== Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories Walkthrough/FAQ Probester/Sam C.
