" Get a good vantage point then I'll head in when you fire the first shot."

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 Island, 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 Remington 700, 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.


  • Take the adrenaline pill just around the corner of the warehouse complex. That will make aiming a lot smoother. Also, its effect won't go until you exit the scoped zoom.
  • A good vantage point would be the roof just up the staircase. Don't waste time, run to it as soon as you pick the adrenaline pill, before its effect wears off.
  • You have to pinpoint the priority enemies so as to quickly clear the way for 8-Ball, because he will run towards the ship as soon as you fire the first shot. First kill the 2 guarding the entrance of the ship, then the 2 up the plank. Then, kill those that are individually in the corridor. Then, shoot at the explosive barrels, and finish killing the single enemy on top of the boxes.


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, Unless Claude drives one in Portland (Excluding Firefighter and Vigilante Missions.)
