For the multiplayer mission in Grand Theft Auto IV, see Bomb Da Base II.

Okay, let's do this thing! I can set this baby to detonate, but I still can't use a piece with these hands. Here, this rifle should help you pop some heads!

Bomb Da Base: Act II is a mission in Grand Theft Auto III given to protagonist Claude by explosives expert 8-Ball from his shop in Harwood, Portland, Liberty City.


8-Ball, knowing about the meeting after a phone call from Salvatore Leone, tells Claude that he needs $100,000 for the explosives and tells Claude to return when he has the money. After obtaining the necessary money, Claude returns to 8-Ball's and the two head to Portland Harbor, with 8-Ball giving Claude a sniper rifle, since his hands are still in a condition bad enough to handle a weapon. After arriving at Portland Harbor, Claude gets a good vantage point (likely the staircase on the warehouse) and begins to kill the Colombian Cartel gang members guarding the Les Cargo container ship, with 8-Ball planting the explosives. He detonates the explosives, getting off the ship's bridge just before it sinks.


The reward for completing this mission is $150,000 and the mission Last Requests is unlocked.


Video Walkthroughs



  • The container ship used by the Colombian Cartel shares the same textures as a ship in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, docked in Viceport.
  • If the player is on the ship when it explodes then the player will not die, instead, they will reappear back on land, but the Cartel Cruisers are gone.
  • The player will still get the cutscene that shows 8-Ball telling Claude that he needs $100,000 even if they already have the money.
  • A ship very similar to the one destroyed in this mission can be seen in GTA IV, as a deteriorated wreck located off the west coast of Acter Industrial Park.
  • This is the only time the Cartel Cruiser appears in Portland (excluding Firefighter and Vigilante missions.)
