"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. The time limit is set to two minutes, but there is no need to rush, as this will use up Tommy's ammo. It is convenient for Tommy to aim for the middle and farthest target rather than the closest one, as they will be able to get more points.  In order to make it easier to hit the farthest targets, shoot all parts of the closest dummy except for the head. This will make it easier to hit the farther targets since the closest dummy is not blocking the two. By following these steps, Tommy can gain around 40 points if done correctly.

In the second and third rounds, the targets of people will appear from windows, doorways and in front of Tommy. All targets are worth one point each. Tommy has a one minute time limit, but again, there is no need to rush this round, as this will also take up ammo. Make sure that Tommy does not waste his ammo, and make sure to take time because one minute is enough time for Tommy to win. By following these steps, Tommy could obtain well over 60 points by the end of the second round, allowing for an easy win.

  • Go to Ammu-Nation in Downtown and talk to Phil Cassidy
