Hit the Courier is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City given to protagonist Tommy Vercetti by Earnest Kelly from the Print Works in Little Haiti, Vice City.

Mission

After finding out about the counterfeit plates, Tommy sets out to intercept them from a courier landing in Viceport. After a brief conversation with Lance and Earnest, he leaves for Viceport. Upon arriving at the docks, he is attacked by several armed women whom he kills. He then waits for the courier who arrives in a Maverick with another bodyguard. He kills both of them, and grabs the chips. Afterwards, he returns to the Print Works. After the mission has been completed, the Printwork will drop daily $8000.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • The counterfeit plates courier is arriving at the docks in a helicopter any second now
  • The courier with the plates has arrived at the docks
  • The courier has died and dropped the plates, get to them before anyone else
  • You have the counterfeit plates. Take them to the print works

Tips

  • There is a very easy way to finish the mission: observing the way that the courier passes, you can kill it using a sniper rifle. She will fall dead on the floor and you can use it use the black Sentinel to reach the Print Works avoiding the other women who pursue you into two other cars Sentinel.

Trivia

  • The target in this mission drives a unique black Sentinel. This is very difficult to take from her due to the large amount of people guarding her, and because the doors are locked which means you have to snipe her out of the car in order to be able to get in.
  • If you shoot the helicopter, the mission will fail. Strangely, the game will say "Mission failed! The plates were destroyed by the explosion", even if it didn't explode.
  • If you follow the courier in her path, she will lead you to the location where the syndicate can print the money.
  • The courier and guards are all referred to as if they were male, for example; The Courier reached his destination, implying either a grammar error or that they were male at one point in development.
