MissionEdit

Lance and Victor Vance go to the Mendez mansion and are told by Armando and Diego that they are free, as long as they leave Vice City and give their assets to them. Lance and Victor refuse and are attacked by Mendez goons. They are taken to a fuel depot in Viceport, stripped of their weapons, and are placed beside three oil and gas tankers. They are then attacked by a Mendez goon who accidentally shoots one of the tankers, causing it to explode, accidentally killing some of the Mendez goons. Victor escapes the area, shooting the other tankers to blow up the place and killing the remaining goons, as he escapes on a PCJ-600, whilst Lance manages to escape in the ensuing chaos. The two meet up shortly after and decide to split up, realizing that they are now the enemies of the Mendez Cartel. After this Victor realizes Mendez's betrayal and cuts his ties with them.

Mission objectivesEdit

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Find your way back inside the fuel depot
  • Rescue Lance before the pressure causes the tanks to explode
  • Shoot the valves to turn off the oil
  • All the fires are out - find Lance
  • Get to the exit before this place blows

Post mission pager messageEdit

Lance Vance: The shit's about to hit the fan Bro'. But. I got us covered...

RewardEdit

There is no reward for this mission, although the mission Blitzkrieg Strikes Again is unlocked.

NoteEdit

  • Victor is stripped of all his weapons after the player regains control at Viceport, but there is a way to regain them. Immediately after the mission concludes, Victor will be standing at the airport. Immediately turn around and walk down the side of the building and some of Victor's weapons will be sitting there, but only weapons up till the SMG slot will remain ( AK-47, Minigun, etc. will be lost)
