Tommy Vercetti / Kent Paul - Vice Point
Ricardo Diaz has captured Lance and is holding him in the junkyard, where he
tortures him. You'll have to save him before he's dead (when his health-bar
runs out), and take him to a hospital. I've heard many people saying this is
a very difficult mission. However, if you follow the next steps, it will become
First: get yourself a really fast car, or if you're not good at driving, a
car that can take a lot of damage. You'll have to be prepared for a fast getaway
once you've saved Lance, because four of Diaz' men will come after you in Infernusses
and ram you. Good cars are the Infernus (which can be found at Diaz' mansion
if you can't find one) or the Cheetah. If you're not good at driving you might
want to take the Patriot, which can be found at Phil's Place (next to the junkyard).
The Patriot can take a lot of damage, and is also fast enough for this mission.
I would not recommend a motorbike. They might be fast, but if you crash and
fall, it's very unlikely you will be able to complete the mission, since Diaz'
men will run over Lance. However, if you're in for a lot of adrenaline and can
handle bikes pretty well, you might take one.
Now, be sure to have some good weapons. You're gonna need a sniper-rifle, so
if you haven't got one already, take the one in the maze in the garden of Diaz'
mansion. Next to that you'll want to have either a Kruger or a Colt with enough
Got a fast car? Got enough weapons? Great. Now drive to the Malibu Club at
Vice Point to meet Kent Paul. Do not park your car in front of the Malibu club!
If you do this, it will be disappeared after the cutscene. Instead, park your
car on the middle of the road. Now walk into the Malibu club and watch the cutscene.
Run back to your car and drive to the junkyard. Be very careful: do not damage
your car! You don't want it to blow up during your getaway. So don't drive too
fast to the junkyard, you should have enough time. The best way to get there
is through Starfish Island.
Once you are there, park the car on a distance from the entrance. Select your
sniper-rifle, and take out the three men guarding the place (two are standing
still, one is walking). If you've done that, get back in your car and drive
to the entrance. Now park your car with the back to the entrance on the sidewalk,
like in the screenshot below.
Park your car with the back to the entrance after killing the
Now run into the junkyard, and place yourself behind a low wall
to the right (see the screenshot below; if you can't fire, step a little bit
back). From there you can easily take the men out without being hit youself.
Take your Kruger or Colt, and fire at all the men running around. Once you've
taken them all out, walk ahead.
If you stand behind this wall, you will probably not be hit
Now go to the left, and walk behind the large machine. Select
your pistol, uzi or fists while doing this, so you can sprint. Now take your
sniper-rifle again. You will see three men guarding Lance in a hangar, and another
one guarding on top of the yellow machine next to the hangar. First take out
the man on the yellow machine, since he is the only one who fires at you. Then
take out the three others guarding Lance. There also might be men on the green
machine, check that out. Now run to Lance (again, select your pistol, uzi or
fists to sprint). Once you've freed Lance, run with him out of the junkyard.
In the next part of the mission, you should be very carefull.
One mistake will probably end in failing the mission. Sprint to your car and
get in, then wait till Lance gets in. You will now see four cars driving at
full speed towards you. Hit the gas, and drive as fast as you can over
the sidewalk to your left. All four cars will miss you now, giving
you enough time to get out of there and bring Lance to a hospital, before the
cars have turned and catched you in. Even without a superfast car like the Patriot
you will have enough time to drive to the hospital before the cars catch you
in. However, drive cautious and not too fast, causing a crash can give the other
drivers enough time to catch you.
This worked for me few times. However, it also happened once that
my car was disappeared when I returned (probably because it was parked to close
to the entrance). In that case a rocketlauncher will be very handy. Run back
into the junkyard as soon as you got the message that Diaz' men are after you.
Now run up the wall where Vercetti is covering behind in the picture above.
The cars now drive into the wall where you first parked your car, or they will
drive into the junkyard. Take your rocketlauncher, and fire at the wall the
cars are behind. Probably three of them will blow up. Lead the fourth one into
the junkyard, and shoot it, again with your rocketlauncher.
After bringing Lance to the hospital, the mission is completed.
However, you've done this mission for yourself, and therefore you won't get
any rewards. [up]
-> You can now play the last mission for Colonel Cortez
$50000 + Diaz' mansion (which will be called 'Vercetti Estate' after this mission)
Now it's time to infiltrate Diaz' mansion together with Lance, so you can kill
that bastard Diaz. You don't need to take care of weapons, Lance gives you a
Colt Python together with some ammo. If you are a bad shooter I suggest you
start this mission with 100 health and 100 armor, since you'll have to shoot
quite some men.
After watching the cutscene, watch the little stairs on your left. Three men
are waiting there and they will attack you if you come close. Shoot them from
a distance. There are also men on the large steps in front of the mansion, but
there's no need to shoot them since it will cost a lot of bullets and they won't
spot you anyway.
Go up the small stairs, and you will see a swimming pool. You can shoot about
two guards from a distance, you might use a sniper-rifle if you have one. If
you don't see any enemies continue and walk across the swimming pool. Take care:
there is at least one men waiting on your left, and there's also someone on
the grassfield behind the swimming pool. Lance will tell you to follow him,
and starts running. Unfortunately he's not a good shooter, so you better run
in front of him, and kill everyone who stands in your way or who shoots at you
or Lance. Select a submachine gun (like the Mac) so you can sprint. You have
to walk to the back of the house, and then walk into the part where a half-indoor
swimming pool is (see screenshot).
Walk into the back of Diaz' mansion. Also: see what happens to Lance when you
let him run in font of you, he loses a lot of health
Go to the hallway on your right, and you will enter the mansion. Don't worry
if Lance is not near you or got stuck somewhere: as soon as you enter the mansion
he will be right behind you. Now be carefull: approach the stairs step by step,
and shoot the enemies on it before they see you (just peek and shoot on whatever
limbs you see). You will encounter three men on the stairs. Run upstairs, and
take the second hallway that leads to your left. Walk through it carefully,
and peek around the corners. You will see several enemies inside the mansion:
six are on the same level as you are, and one is below you. Shoot the ones you
can see, then walk into the main hall of the mansion and kill whatever is left
of them (don't forget the one who is below you!). Now walk into the direction
of Diaz' room and you will see a brief cutscene. The only thing you have to
do now is to shoot at Diaz. If he runs into his room, just follow him and shoot
him there. You will now see a short cutscene again, and you've completed the
-> You can now play missions for Love Fist / Kent
You're working for yourself now, together with your partners Ken Rosenberg,
Lance Vance and Avery Carrington. Not all the shops in Vice City see you as
the new boss yet, so you'll need to terrify them so they will pay you protection
money. You'll have to this by smashing their shop-windows within five minutes.
This mission can be done in two ways:
A. On foot, the harder way
Drive to the North Point Mall in the Infernus which is parked in front of Vercetti
Estate. Once you are there (you'll probably come in through the east-entrance)
go to the south. First destroy the windows of the Tarbrush Café in the
corner. You can do this with a gun or a hammer. You will hear a bleep whenever
you destroy a window. Tip: if you use the hammer to destroy all the windows,
be sure to go inside the shop and smash the windows from the inside. This way
you'll encounter less police officers who start shooting at you.
After destroying the Tarbrush Café go to the Gash store. First smash
it's windows on the ground floor, after that go to the first floor and destroy
the windows there. There's an escalator inside the store which can take you
upstairs. You will get at least two wanted-stars, which you can lose by changing
clothes (a casual outfit can be found in front of the Gash store on the first
floor). Now go downstairs again and approach to the north. Walk up the stairs
in the middle of the mall and destroy the windows of Vinyl Countdown music store
on the first floor. It is located on your left (west). Again go down the stairs
and go to the north. There are two stores left: a bookstore in the west, and
a jewelry in the east. Destroy the windows of both shops, and the mission is
There's an escalator in the Gash store which you can use to get to the first
Overall tip: do not pay attention to the police and guards who are following
you and are shooting at you. When you reach the last shop you will have a four-star
wanted level. If you keep zigzagging, sprinting and jumping and smashing the
windows from inside the shops they will not hit you much.
B. On a motorbike, the easier way.
Be sure to have a fast motorbike (the PCJ is the best choice for this mission)
parked in front of Vercetti Estate before you start the mission. Also be sure
to have enough ammo for your submachine gun (Mac or Uzi). Now drive as fast
as you can to the North Point Mall, but be carefull not to crash. Go inside
the Mall with your bike, and destroy the windows using the drive-by shooting
method. Do it on the same order as described at the 'on foot' part. However,
don't go down after destroying the windows of the shop called Gash, but stay
on the first floor, and drive all around to the music store. Again, do not pay
attention to the police.
Trashing all the windows within the time limit will result in a successfull
end of the mission. [up]
-> You can now buy property in certain areas of the
$4000 + $1000 bonus if you destroy the police van.
Almost the same story as the previous mission: a bar refuses to pay protection
money, and hired another company/gang to protect it. You have to kill their
protection and know what other protection they hired, and then kill them. You'll
get two sidekicks to do this mission.
Get into a car where both sidekicks fit in. There's a sentinel waiting in front
of the mansion, which will do. A better choice is the Sentinel XS, so if you
encounter one on your way to the bar, steal it (be careful not to get cops attention).
It's fairly easy yet. Be sure to approach the bar coming from the south, and
drive slowly past it. Now look to your left, and you will see two guards with
pink arrows above their heads. Just do a drive-by shooting to kill them. After
that run to the bar, and talk to the owner (don't worry about your one-star
wanted level, it will very likely be gone after the cutscene).
Just do an easy drive-by shooting
The owner of the bar tells you the DBP Security arranged his protection. You
have 5 minutes to pay the DBP security a visit before they leave. Drive to the
location marked on your radar, but be careful: they will start shooting at you
as soon as they spot you. Before you get out of your car to kill them, park
your car on the road not to close to the guards. Something
will explode later on, so if you park your car on the sidewalk it will also
explode. Also be sure your car is facing east. Now get out and kill all the
guards who are waiting there, but be carefull: you will attract police attention.
An easier way to kill them is by using the drive-by method again. It works for
most of them, but you will probably need to get out to kill the last one. As
soon as they are all dead you will see a short cutscene with an explosion where
two guards get away on PCJ motors. You will also receive a one or two-star wanted
level (depending on the method you used to kill them; using the drive-by method
will get you only one star, by getting out and killing them with your guns you'll
get two stars). Get in your car and follow them. As soon as you reach the Ocean
Drive you will see a blue police van driving towards you. Try not to hit it
(duh..). Now you can do two things:
A. Destroy it and you will receive $1000 bonus. To do this, go to somewhere
where you are safe, where neither the police, nor the van can hit you. There
are plenty of hotels and bars where you can hide just in front. Don't worry
about the timer (you should have plenty of time) or the motorguys (they will
wait near the beach). Get out, walk up the steps and take cover (do not park
your car in front of it though, the van will ram it and will destroy it when
it explodes). The police van will now try to hit you. Just shoot at it with
a Kruger, Colt, Shotgun or Rocketlauncher untill it explodes. If you're done,
continue after B. Note: it can happen that the van crashes into a wall and won't
come to you. If that happens you can shoot it with a Colt or Rocketlauncher,
or just leave it alone and continue with the mission.
B. Avoid it and focus on the two motorguys.
Get back to your car, and drive in the direction of the two guards. Be sure
to drive on the grass to your left! If you have a two-star wanted level, two
police cars will come from your right when you pass a sideway, and they will
ram you if you just drive on the road. If you didn't destroy the police van
you will probably catch up with the motordrivers. Now do not ram them off their
bikes, but do a drive-by shooting again. You should be able to kill them both,
and the mission is complete. If you did destroy the van the guards will be waiting
near the beach and lighthouse. First take the one that's the most to the south.
He won't see you, and you can either get out to shoot him, as well as doing
a drive-by shooting or run him over. Be careful not to drive into the water.
The other one is close to the lighthouse. He probably sees you and shoots at
you when you approach. Just drive over him, and your mission will be complete.
It seems that you'll want to blow up the Tarbrush Café in North Point
Mall, but the guy who was supposed to do it failed. Now the place is full of
cops, but the place still needs to be exploded. The solution: Lance and Tommy
will dress like cops, get in, plant the bomb and get out. There's no real need
to have 100 armor or a lot of bullets when you start this mission, you only
want to have either a fast car or a chopper. When you have the one of your choice,
park it in front of Vercetti Estate and watch the cutscene.
Go to the garage marked on your radar. You will now need to get two cops into
the garage. Simply start killing people untill you have a two-star wanted level.
Just wait till a police car comes, and try to get the agents into the garage.
Don't let them catch you, keep running and jumping to get them into the garage.
As soon as two cops are in it (doesn't matter if they're dead or alive), and
Lance and you are also, the garage door will close. When it opens again Lance
and Tommy will wear the police uniforms, and your wanted stars have disappeared.
You now need to get into the Mall. The game sais you need a police car, but
any car will do. Actually, the worst thing you can do is taking a cop car to
get in, since Pay 'n Spray's won't spray cop cars, and therefore your getaway
will be very difficult if you use the cop car. So take whatever car (I do not
recommend a bike, the FBI will hit you and you'll be thrown off) you want, as
long as it's quite fast and strong, and as long as it's not a police car, police
van, FBI car, fire truck or ambulance. Another option is to take a helicopter.
Now park/land your vehicle near the entrance that is the closest to the Tarbrush
Café. This is the south-entrance (see also the screenshot below). Now
go inside and walk into the pink marker in the Tarbrush Café. Tommy will
place the bomb, but have only five seconds to get away before it explodes! So
run away towards the entrance you just came in. It actually explodes even earlier
when you reach the exit of the Mall within the five seconds (however I'm not
100% sure about that one). You will get a five-star wanted level as soon as
the café has exploded, so the place is full of cops, and FBI drivers
will chase you in Cheetah's. As soon as you're outside don't pay attention to
the cops, but run straight to your vehicle. Get in, wait till Lance got in,
and get the hell out of there! If you have a helicopter, just fly back to Vercetti
Estate. Don't land your chopper on the roof, since you'll have to walk to the
pink marker in front of the mansion. Instead, just land it in front of the mansion,
get out and run to the marker. Again, do not pay attention to the cops, just
keep running and jumping untill you reach the marker (don't jump over it though
Park your vehicle in front of the entrance which is the closest to the Café
so you can make a quick getaway
If you had a car, just drive away as fast as you can. There's a very big chance
one of the cops shoots (one of) your tires leak, so it's not going to be an
easy drive. However, the Pay 'n Spray is close, and you should make it to there
if you drive carefully. When your wanted level is cleared, just head back to
Vercetti Estate, and you have finished another mission. [up]
-> You have completed the Protection Ring Asset; Vercetti
Estate will now generate revenue up to a maximum of $5000
-> You can now get a cop uniform at the police station in Washington Beach,
which makes it possible to enter Fort Baxter Air Base
-> You cannot continue with the last two storyline missions untill you've
completed most of the asset missions, and most of the assets generate money.
It is unknown which assets need to be completed to continue with the storyline.
It's certain however, that the Malibu Club and the Film Studio are not
necessary (you should probably have finished one of them), and the Print Works
and Boatyard are both required. I think Rockstar uses a system
where every asset has it's own ranking points, and that you can continue whenever
you have a certain amount of points (by buying assets and completing their missions).
Anyway, you will get a call as soon as you own enough property to continue with
the storyline. For more information about properties, view the asset
Cap the Collector
The Maffia has come to Vice City and starts taxing your businesses. They already
robbed the Print Works, and they're heading to all your other properties. It's
your job to stop them.
This mission is fairly easy. There are three groups of two men on Sanchez motorbikes,
who visit all your properties and tax them. The order in which they do this
is the following: Print Works - The Boatyard - Sunshine Auto's - Ice Cream Factory
- Kaufman Cabs - Innerfilm Studio's. I don't know about the Malibu Club and
the Pole Position, but I guess they will tax them after the Film Studio.
Before you start this mission you should have a fast car parked in front of
the Print Works, and a Kruger or Colt with some ammo. An excellent choice is
the Police Cheetah, which is parked at the police station not far away. Once
the mission is started, get in your car and get to the Boatyard as fast as possible.
It is impossible to arrive at the Boatyard before the Maffia does, but that's
not such a big deal. Now get out of your car and kill the collectors. If you're
quick, you can kill them before they tax the boatyard, if not, just kill them
when they come back. You can just shoot them with your Kruger or Colt while
they are running (use the first person function for a good aim). Just be careful:
once they've spotted you they will start shooting at you.
As soon as they're dead a new pair of collectors on a Sanchez comes in. If
the onces you've killed taxed the Boatyard the second group will go to Sunshine
Auto's. If they didn't, then the second group will go to the Boatyard again.
They come from the north, so what you can do is to drive to the north. You will
encounter them after a while. Now aim well and crash into the Sanchez. Both
the collectors will be thrown off, and you can either run over them with your
car or get out and shoot them.
The third and last group now comes in, again from the north. You can do the
same trick here: just drive towards them and ram them of their bike. If you
miss them, just turn around and follow them. They go very fast, but they drive
like they're drunk. So even if you can't catch up with them, you will probably
encounter them somewhere on the ground when they crashed. If you have a really
slow vehicle, here's what you can do: don't follow them to Sunshine Auto's,
but wait for them at the Ice Cream Factory. Once they arrive, simply shoot them.
Mission complete, $30000 dollards easily earned, and you can continue with the
last storyline mission in the game. [up]
Keep Your Friends Close
Okay, so this is where it all ends. If you haven't played this mission yet,
do not read further, because this mission description will spoil the end for
It seems that Lance has betrayed you, and the Maffia (including Sonny Forelli)
is visiting Vercetti Estate to end the whole situation by killing you. You need
to kill Lance, as well as Sonny and loads of Maffia guyes. The difficulty-rating
above may seem a little weird. However, the difficulty of this mission depends
a lot on the weapons you are carrying. For instance, when you start this mission
only with a pistol, it's very difficult, and if you start this mission with
the minigun with lots of ammo, the mission is very easy. So before you start
this mission you want to be equiped well. Which weapons you want to use is completely
up to you. If you want this mission to be easy, take the minigun. You get this
weapon if you've collected 60 hidden packages, and it can carry a lot of ammo.
If you don't want to collect 60 packages or don't want this mission to be too
easy, go for the Colt and Uzi/Mac together with at least 400 bullets. It is
a very good idea to get the fast reload ability. For more information check
page on the forum. Note: this mission description is based on the Colt,
so it can be a little different if you play it with other weapons. Next to a
lot of weapons be sure to have 100 health and armor, or even
more. Prostitutes and Pizza missions can both give you more health. Last of
all: be sure to have some cash, since Maffia men will start stealing it, and
the more money you have, the more time you have to complete the mission. About
$40000 should be more then enough.
Once you are ready to start this mission head to Vercetti Estate. After watching
the cutscene you will be in your room. Probably nothing will happen when you
keep standing there, so walk a little bit forward so you can oversee the main
hall of the mansion. If still nothing happens try to fire at the cars (stretches)
you can see outside of the mansion (best way to do this is by using the rocketlauncher;
watch out that you don't hit yourself with it!). The Maffia enemies will now
start running up the stairs to kill you. Just get back to your room and mow
them down with the gun of your choice. Few tips: use the first-person view to
have a better sight, and aim exact in the middle of the door-opening. Most of
the enemies will walk to the middle before they enter your room, so keep aiming
in the middle of the door-opening and shoot small bursts of bullets. Usually
two bullets will be enough to kill someone. Be sure to time your reload well.
There's always a short pause between every two or three men that come to you.
When you only have 4 bullets left in your magazin and nobody's running towards
you, shoot those bullets so you can reload when it's save.
After a short while you will get the message that you have to kill Lance. Don't
stay in your room: Maffia enemies will keep respawning so you will only waste
bullets. Just walk outside of your room to view a short cutscene in which Lance
will appear together with some guards. As soon as the cutscene is over hurry
back into your room. Now look in front of you, and you will see two guards (watch
the screenshot below, the guards have a purple circle around them). Kill them,
they won't shoot at you. Once they are dead wait untill it's save and run outside
of your room. Lance and another guard are firing at you now. First shoot at
Lance - who will run away as soon as you've hit him (unless you used the minigun,
he will be dead then) -, then the guard. Don't pay attention to other enemies
running up the stairs, but follow Lance into the hall.You will encounter him
there two more times, together with a new guard. Again, first shoot at Lance
so he runs away (be careful: he has a Kruger and will also fire at you!), then
the guard. You will now get a message that Maffia men are stealing money from
your vault, and the amount of money you have will keep going down.Once you've
reached the stairs you will encounter Lance a third time. Again, shoot at him
and approach, untill you reach the roof of Vercetti Estate.
Kill these two guards before you get out to hurt Lance
About 10 enemies are waiting there to kill you, including Lance. Don't pay
attention to the enemies, but run to the helipad, and keep jumping on your way.
When you are on the helipad you have great cover, and you can easily take the
enemies out. Lance is very close to the helipad and you can kill him easily
from above. If you need you can pick up health.
Now go back to your room again. If you are low on health and armor, it's a
very good idea to go all the way downstairs, and pick up the armor, health and
ammo. Just watch out that when you go upstairs again, you will encounter few
guards. Once you're back at your room (just run to it, don't pay attention to
the enemies who are running around) you will see another short cutscene in which
Sonny together with two guards appear. This is the thoughest part: you will
have to shoot Sonny in order to complete the mission. The nasty thing is that
he and his guards carry heavy weapons which will rip you to pieces in no-time,
and that Sonny has way more health then you have. There is however an easy way
to kill him. As soon as the cutscene is over run back into your room as fast
as you can. They will not come to you (or at least they didn't do that when
I tried). Now walk to the door-opening of the room, and you should see Sonny's
head sticking out in the middle. Just fire at it with your Colt untill he is
dead. Also shoot other enemies that might run up the stairs when you're shooting
at Sonny's head.
Once he is dead you've completed this mission, as well as the storyline part
of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Congratulations! [up]
