Lance Vance tells his brother Victor about their situation with the Mendez Brothers

Blitzkrieg is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories given to protagonist Victor Vance by his brother Lance Vance from his apartment in Ocean Beach, Vice City.

The player needs to own a minimum of five Empire Building sites to unlock this mission.


Victor visits Lance at his apartment. When he arrives, Lance is worried and informs Vic that the Mendez Brothers have discovered that the Vances stole their cocaine shipment. After a brief argument, Lance picks up his phone and is informed that the Mendez Cartel are going to attack the business sites owned by Vance Crime Family. Victor and Lance both head to the sites under attack and successfully defend the sites from the Mendez attacks.

  • The Mendezes' goons are attacking all your businesses. Go help Lance defend the business.
  • Your gang are defending all your other businesses for you.

NOTE: The following cutscene will play only if the player has an insufficient amount of Empire Building sites.
Lance: Hey, Vic. What are you doing here? You should be out there building our empire.
Victor: What empire? I own a few businesses - now it's an empire? And what do you mean our empire?
Lance: Call it what you want, but when the Mendez brothers finally work out that we ripped them off, you're gonna need all the cash you can get.
Victor: What? And you're just gonna sit here?
Lance: Hey, man, it's your empire.
Victor Vance is at his brother's apartment, where he finds Lance panicking.
Lance: Find a way outta this, man...
Victor: Lance, what the fuck is wrong now?
Lance: Nothing, nothing at all...we're fine.
Victor: Really? 'Cause I tell you something: we don't look fine.
Lance: Well let me tell you something: we are.
Victor: Well, "we" look like a moron who just realized "we" just screwed up his entire family!
Lance: Well speak for your damn self! It's just business, baby. I think I sorted out everything. I am cool, man, I am relaxed as hell! Yeah.
Victor: What are you talking about?
Lance: The Mendez Brothers...they don't want us dead anymore.
Victor: No?
Lance: No. They might wanna hurt us a bit, but kill us? Nah...
Victor: OK, so, a pair of homicidal lunatics merely wanna hurt me a bit and I'm actually pleased about it! WHAT HAVE YOU GOTTEN US INTO, YOU DUMB SHIT?!
Lance: Bro, we're cool, no problem.
Lance's cellphone rings.
Victor: Oh, Lance...
Lance: (picks up the phone) Yeah, it's the Don. What? You're shitting me, right? (hangs up) Damn...
Victor: What?!
Lance: Th-there might be a...little problem.
Lance and Vic go outside.
Lance: Stop yelling at me, it's not my fault!
Victor: Yes, it is! If you hadn't stolen the Mendezes' coke, they wouldn't be attacking all of my businesses.
Lance: I'm sick and tired of you blaming me for everything. Now, I'm gonna save your empire! You do what you want.
Lance drives away. Vic decides to follow him to the business that's being attacked. Upon arrival, Vic sees Lance defending himself against the Mendez Cartel, armed with an AK-47.
  • You're on my turf now!
  • You're all mine!
  • You're dead!
  • My name is Lance, you haven't a chance!
  • I'll break you in two!
  • I know kung-fu!
  • Chicken!
Eventually, the Vance brothers and their gang reign victorious.
Victor: We did it, we won!
Lance: Yeah? Well, I wouldn't go that far, bro.
Victor: What do you mean?
Lance: We might've won the day here, but we probably got our asses whipped elsewhere. Sorry, man.

Video Walkthrough


  • The location of the business attacked will vary depending on what businesses Victor owns (although there are several that are obtained as part of missions, so it will at minimum be one of them).
  • Although Lance indicates the family "got our asses whipped elsewhere", just a few of the other properties may become lightly damaged.
  • Blitzkrieg is a German word which translates into English as flash war or lightning war. It was also the name for the Nazi's "dominate-and/or-destroy" war tactic. Throughout the Second World War, the Luftwaffe used the Blitzkrieg tactic to destroy other European air bases and attempt to gain air superority over that nation.
