Checkpoint Charlie is an asset mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. It is available after the purchase of the Boatyard in Viceport, Vice City.


After the cutscene, the mission can be activated by the player, by either entering the Squalo or Cuban Jetmax located by the jetties. The objective of the mission is to collect 26 packages located across the waterways of Vice City within two and a half minutes. The countdown timer begins once the player enters either boat. Collecting all 26 packages and returning to the Boatyard within the time limit will complete the mission.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Collect the packages before the time runs out


  • It is recommended to use the Squalo instead of the Cuban Jetmax because the Squalo is faster, making it easier to complete the mission.


The reward for completing this is $5000. The Boatyard will also become an asset and generate a revenue of up to $2000 a day.
