"Somebody help me!"
— Mrs. Dawson.

Waste The Wife is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City given to protagonist Tommy Vercetti by Mr. Black from a public phone booth in Vice Point, Vice City.

MissionEdit

Mr. Black gets in contact once again with Tommy, thanking him for his earlier job well done. He then goes on to explain his next task, his employer wants his wife, Mrs. Dawson, dead. Tommy drives to the Jewelry shop in Vice Point, where he sees Dawson leaving and getting into her yellow Comet. Tommy destroys her car by ramming his car to it, to make it look like an accident, despite her attempts to escape after she realizes Tommy's intentions, completing the mission.

Mission objectivesEdit

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Mrs. Dawson will be leaving the Jewelry shop in Vice Point soon. Kill her. It must look like a car accident
  • You must make Mrs. Dawson's death look like an accident. Do not use any weapons
  • When her car bursts into flames make yourself scarce
  • She's gonna blow! Get out of there

Tips and TricksEdit

  • A good vehicle for destroying Mrs. Dawson's Comet is a VCPD Enforcer. It is large, can keep up with the Comet fairly easily, and one can be obtained at the police station a couple of blocks away from the phone booth that is used to start the mission.
  • Another vehicle would be the Rancher. It is as fast as Mrs. Dawson's Comet and, as long as the player does not damage it too much, will be sturdy enough to ram the Comet.
  • The PIT maneuver is recommended as it can spin the Comet out of control, either forcing Mrs Dawson to drive into walls in an attempt to get back on the road or flipping the car onto its roof, destroying it.
