Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories (PSP)
Complete the "Taking the Fall" mission to have this bike appear at Lance's safehouse.
Complete the "Kill Phill" mission.
Little Willie is a small helicopter that fits only one person. You can get it at your new apartment building after doing the "From Zero To Hero" mission. It is on the roof and costs $5,000.
Complete the "When Funday Comes" mission.
As soon as you get out of Little Haiti and enter Downtown, notice the small line coming out of the island and going into the water on your map. When you go there, it will look like a little dock. On it will be the Skimmer aquatic plane.
Complete Lance's mission "From Zero To Hero". The Splitz-6 ATV that can travel on land and water will appear at the compound safe house.
- After the first mission you will end up in the barracks. Grab the handgun and kill soldiers. Take their guns. Note: If you kill too many of them they will fire back.
- At the start of the game when Vic is stationed at the barracks, the soldiers walking around the fort all carry M16 assault rifles. You can get as many as desired by jumping into one of the parked Patriots and running the soldiers over. You can pick up their rifles and go on a rampage, or use them to complete the bonus missions around the city easier. After you pass the third or fourth mission for your first Boss however, you will be kicked out of the base and have no way of getting the M16s with that method.
Domo Arigato Domestoboto mission: Safe combination
The code to crack the safe is "8423".
Jive Drive mission: Lead Lance from harm
The first part can be easy, but the second part can
be frustratingly hard. To make it easier, stand and fight when
it is safe, and run when it is not. First, equip yourself properly.
You will need a shotgun with at least 10 shells and an AK47 with
at least 70 rounds. You will also need some basic knowledge of
how Lance behaves during this mission. Knowledge of Lance's behavior
is crucial to his survival, as well as your own. Lance will follow
you as long he can see you. If you sprint and he sees you, he
will also sprint. Do not make any sharp turns around corners.
If he loses sight of you, he will run to the closest wall along
the path to get to you, then just do a continuous bump-into-the-wall
movement. Before entering the pink marker, equip the shotgun.
This mission starts easy enough. Go to pickup your brother at
the airport. He makes you wait, then he surprises you. You settle
your differences, then point yourself toward home. The Cholos
will decide this is a prime opportunity to exact revenge on you.
Once you regain control of Vic, try to hit as many Cholos as you
can. The trick to keeping your car free of damage is to kill all
the Cholos shooting your vehicle. Aim for the heads of individuals,
and the tires of moving cars. If you just shoot moving cars until
they explode, the explosion will damage your vehicle if they explode
nearby. Shoot the tires so that they skid away from you. As far
as stationary cars, just fire away. The explosion should kill
nearby Cholos. If you make it all the way to the end, Lance will
make "one more Lance Vance Chance". After Vic and Lance
argue some more, it is time to flee. When the second part starts,
equip the shotgun and run towards the Cholo if front of you. Kill
as many Cholos in front of you as possible, then run down the
street towards the water. Make sure that Lance can see you at
all times. Lance will only follow if he can see you. Keep your
eye on traffic and stay to the right. Do not let Lance get run
over by a car. Once you have Lance in tow, keep running down the
street and cross Bayshore Avenue. Stay in the grassy area and
hang out with Lance. You will be mostly safe from harm. You still
have to kill all the Cholos that are represented by red blips
on your radar, but you will now have the upper hand not only on
the Cholos, but on Lance as well. Equip the AK47 and start making
your way back towards the Cholos. They will be making their way
towards you, but the AK's longer range means you can dispatch
the Cholos without them being able to target you with their shorter
range SMGs. Lance will not be able to engage them either, which
will keep him safe as well. Once all the Cholos are dead, take
Walk up behind someone, then press Triangle. Their arms should be in the air. Press Triangle again to break their neck.
Walk up to someone. Hold R1 + Triangle
PlayStation2 or R + Triangle
PSP to grasp them, then press X to hit harder.
Destroying durable vehicles
To easily destroy durable vehicles (for example, tanks
and Army trucks), throw Molotov Cocktails at them. Tanks usually
take about three to five Molotovs. Army trucks and others like
it take about two Molotovs. Almost every other vehicle only requires
one Molotov to destroy them. Note: A Flamethrower is also a good
alternative. However, if confronted by a massive group of tanks
and trucks, you must have lots of health, armor, and ammunition
if you are out of Molotov Cocktails.
Go faster on bikes
PSP You can reach maximum speed on scooters and motorcycles
by pressing Up slightly on the Analog-pad to duck
your head. Do not press it all the way or you will stand up, which
makes you go slower. You cannot steer while doing this.
Getting the best cars
To find some of the best cars, drive to Starfish Island.
Take the first left turn and then a right turn. You will find
a Cheetah, Infernus, etc.
To do a back flip, enable the "Perfect handling"
code and go up a ramp. Just before you go off the ramp, jump.
You should do a back flip. Note: This may require a few attempts.
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City reference
The actual "Easter egg" from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is back in Vice City Stories in the exact same location. This time it is literally under construction. Go to the bridge that leads to Prawn Island from the east side of Vice City. If you are coming directly from the Ammu-Nation, it should be on your left. It is the VCN building. You can walk into the arrow and you will be on top of the VCN building. Walk up the ramps to get to the helipad. Once there, you should see that a part of the helipad touches the neighboring building. Run and jump into the window. You cannot see through the window; it is a wall that you can walk through that has a window design on it. If you hit it in the correct location, you go through the wall and see the Easter Egg from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, only it is still being built. It is a red metal frame (like a building that is under construction) and has a construction arm that is building it. Also the stand that it is on has a sign thathas a smiley face and scribbles.
Fall through ground
- Get a motorbike(the police bike recommended) and go to Diaz's mansion on Starfish Island. Wheelie onto the rail of his steps, then look right (as if you are doing a drive-by). Wait until it sinks slightly into the rail. Get off the bike. You will fall underneath the steps and land just outside. The bike will explode.
- Go to the lighthouse near Ocean Beach. Get a Sanchez and ride up the stairs that lead to the door. Get off of the Sanchez and it will appear as if you fell through the stairs. Note: This may not work the first time you try it. Keep trying and it will eventually happen.
Steal a Banshee. Then by ramming objects only, break the hood off the Banshee. Then crash the car at high speed head on into a telephone pole. For the trick to work, you must hit the pole in the dead center of the engine. The car will now be skewered by the pole and cannot be taken out.
Stuck in Rhino tank
Start a new game or have a saved game with Victor still working for the army. Get into a car in the base and drive out the right door. Go forward until half the car has passed the yellow line. Walk out and take a few steps to your left. Enable the "Spawn Rhino tank" code. The tank will spawn where you are standing. You will be stuck in there until you reload the game or kill yourself.
