Tommy Vercetti.

Shakedown is the first mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City given by Lance Vance to the protagonist Tommy Vercetti  in Vercetti Estate in Starfish Island, Vice City.


After taking over Diaz's mansion, Tommy discusses with Lance Vance, Ken Rosenberg, and Avery Carrington on what to do next. Lance tells Tommy that some stores are refusing to pay protection after knowing Diaz's death. Tommy heads to the North Point Mall to do a hit and run on the shop fronts to scare them into paying protection. As he destroys the windows of the shops, Tommy gets increasing attention from the police. Tommy manages to smash all the windows of five shops within five minutes.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Get to the North Point Mall in Vice Point
  • Smash the panes of glass in each shop front and the owners will be begging for new protection


The rewards for completing this mission is $2,000, the .308 Sniper is available to buy at Ammu-Nation, and assets can now be purchased by the player. The mission Bar Brawl is unlocked.


  • An error can be seen in the cutscene, the player needs to destroy all the windows from the mall in 5 minutes, which represents 5 hours in GTA-Time, Tommy says that he returns in 5 minutes, which logically means 5 seconds in GTA-Time.
