Gun Runner is the first mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City given to protagonist Tommy Vercetti from arms dealer Phil Cassidy from his depot in Little Haiti, Vice City.


After the successful bank heist, Phil phones Tommy saying he can receive some extra weaponry. He goes over to his depot to find Phil making bombs out of boomshine, one of which detonates, destroying a Walton. Phil tells Tommy about a Mexican arms dealer named Pedro Garcia who is doing his weekly run. Phil then asks Tommy to steal the weapons shipment. Tommy rams the gun runners' trucks until the weapon crates fall out, smashes the crates, collects the weapons (a .357, SPAS 12, M-60, and a MAC-10) and finally kill all the gun runners in the trucks while being pursued by many Faggio-riding backup, completing the mission.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Go and knock the arms off the back of the dealers' trucks
  • The arms dealer dropped his load. Smash the crate and pick up the weapon
  • The arms dealer dropped his load. Smash the crate and pick up the weapon
  • The arms dealer dropped his load. Smash the crate and pick up the weapon
  • The arms dealer dropped his load. Smash the crate and pick up the weapon
  • Now go and finish off the remaining arms dealers

Post mission phone call

Phil Cassidy: Tommy, it's Phil, now cut out all the reminising crap and listen to me, you hear? Good. I got me some extra strength boomshine nearing fermentation time and I was wondering if you'd fancy having a shot. Seriously, Tommy, if you like a drink, or if you need to strip paint, this stuff'll make a man out of you. Sure did out of me, even though I can't see out of one eye. I'll be waiting for you, y'hear.

Tips and Tricks

  • Although Phil asks Tommy to kill the dealers, this is not necessary to complete the mission; the player only needs to pick up the guns and destroy the Waltons to successfully complete the mission.
  • Unless your car has caught fire, it is best not to exit your vehicle, as the gun runners are quite aggressive with their Waltons - if one hits you, it will quickly drain your health.


  • The Waltons used by the gun runners in this mission have a unique white paintjob.
  • The Walton in the cutscene features an unobtainable light blue paintjob and different rims.
  • The player will get a $100 bonus for every Faggio rider that is killed.
