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.
