For the multiplayer mission in Grand Theft Auto IV, see Bomb Da Base II.
" Get a good vantage point then I'll head in when you fire the first shot."

Bomb Da Base: Act II is a mission in Grand Theft Auto III given to protagonist Claude by explosives expert 8-Ball from his shop in Harwood, Portland Island, Liberty City.


8-Ball, knowing about the meeting after a phone call from Salvatore Leone, tells Claude that he needs $100,000 for the explosives and tells Claude to return when he has the money. After obtaining the necessary money, Claude returns to 8-Ball's and the two head to Portland Harbor, with 8-Ball giving Claude a Remington 700, since his hands are still in a condition bad enough to handle a weapon. After arriving at Portland Harbor, Claude gets a good vantage point (likely the staircase on the warehouse) and begins to kill the Colombian Cartel gang members guarding the Les Cargo container ship, with 8-Ball planting the explosives. He detonates the explosives, getting off the ship's bridge just before it sinks.


The reward for completing this mission is $150,000 and the mission Last Requests is unlocked.


Video Walkthroughs


  • The container ship used by the Colombian Cartel shares the same textures as a ship in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, docked in Viceport.
  • If the player is on the ship when it explodes then the player will not die, instead, they will reappear back on land, but the Cartel Cruisers are gone.
  • The player will still get the cutscene that shows 8-Ball telling Claude that he needs $100,000 even if they already have the money.
  • Despite the fact that Claude is given a sniper rifle, the player is at liberty to use any weapons at their disposal and can even get on board the ship to fight. A video of this can be seen here.
  • If the player drives a car up the ramp before 8-Ball sinks the ship, the car can be seen hovering in the air after the ship is destroyed. This can be seen here.
  • A ship very similar to the one destroyed in this mission can be seen in GTA IV, as a deteriorated wreck located off the west coast of Acter Industrial Park.
  • Despite not being able to use a weapon, 8-Ball has no problem setting up an explosive with his injured hands, showing he is either very experienced in bomb making/planting, it may have been an overlooked detail by the developers, or simply it was already made.
  • If the player fails the mission, they will still lose money if they replay it, except for playing on PS2.
  • This is the only time the Cartel Cruiser appears in Portland. (Excluding Firefighter and Vigilante Missions.)
  • This mission is similar to Nervous Ron in Grand Theft Auto V. Both involved getting a sniper rifle, stand on top of a tower, and kill the guards while the other person going in and plant a bomb.
