"Well, the best shooter in this town is a guy named Cassidy. A military guy, or at least he thinks he is..."
Cam Jones

The Shootist is a Malibu Club asset mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City which the protagonist Tommy Vercetti does independently, located Vice Point, Vice City.

Overview

Tommy wants a stickup man for the job. Cam Jones recommends Phil Cassidy as he considers him to be one of the best shooter in town. Tommy heads to Downtown to a shooting range to meet Phil. Phil will only join Tommy if Tommy can prove himself that he can handle a gun.

Walkthrough

The objective of this mission is to get a total score of 60 points or more in three rounds of a shooting range.

In the first round, there will be three targets hanging from the ceiling and moving from left to right. The closest target is worth one point, the middle is two points, and the farthest is worth three points. It convinient for the player to aim for the middle and farthest target more than the closest one, as they can get more points.

You have a two minute time limit in the first round, but there is no need to rush. If the player aims for the two and three point target precisely, there is no reason why they should not get 40 or more points, rushing will only lead to innaccurate aiming and less points. In order to make it easier to hit the two and three point targets, shoot all parts of the one point dummy except for the head. This will make it easier to hit the farther targets since the body of the first dummy is not blocking it.

In the second and third rounds, the targets of people holding guns will appear in windows, doorways and in front of you. All targets are worth one point each. The player has a one minute time limit, but again, they still need to remain calm and patient to make sure not to waste ammo, as one minute is enough time to easily gain over 60 points. Make sure that you do not waste your ammo, and take your time because one minute is enough time for you to win. following these steps, could could earn the player over 60 points by the end of the second round giving the player no worries with the second round.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Go to Ammu-Nation in Downtown and talk to Phil Cassidy
  • Hit as many targets as you can in the time limit
  • Get to round two's starting point
  • Hit as many targets as you can in the time limit
  • Move on to the next area
  • Hit as many targets as you can in time limit
