Bomb Da Base: Act I is a mission in Grand Theft Auto III given to protagonist Claude by Leone Family Don Salvatore Leone from his mansion in Saint Mark's, Portland Island, Liberty City.


Salvatore Leone informs Claude that the Colombian Cartel have an almost infinite amount of funds from selling SPANK throughout the city, and that he wants Claude to destroy the freighter docked in Portland Harbor being used by the Cartel to manufacture SPANK, Salvatore tells Claude to see explosives expert 8-Ball at his shop to get the explosives necessary. Claude then drives to meet 8-Ball.


There is no monetary reward for completing the mission. Completing the mission unlocks 8-Ball's mission Bomb Da Base: Act II triggered at his bomb shop in Harwood.


  • This mission is only a mere cutscene, yet after you watch through it, it will be deemed as a complete mission in the statistics.
  • You can save after this mission before triggering the second part of this mission at 8-Ball's autoyard.
  • Salvatore promises to make Claude a "made man" upon completion of this mission, even though Claude is not Italian (as pointed out in Cipriani's Chauffeur, when Joey introduces Claude to Toni Cirpiani, saying "He ain't Italian but he can get things done"). Under the code of the Cosa Nostra, non-Italians cannot be "made". Also, real members of the Mafia are only eligible to be made after about 10 to 20 years of experience with the Mafia. As of this mission, it is only the third time that Claude meets Salvatore. However, revelations in the mission Last Requests could imply Salvatore was simply lying to Claude in order to earn his trust and manipulate his loyalty.
