Events of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories

He is just a new employer for Victor and Lance Vance when he provides missions for them, and aids Victor on his rise in power in Vice City.

Lance soon finds out that he is an undercover cop, and he and Victor capture him and take him to an abandoned building where they tie him up and get some info from him. He is killed by Victor when he tries to escape after duping Lance and Victor into entering a gay white supremacist bar, Lance did not have any intention of killing him because he did not yet reveal where a big cocaine shipment was, however Lance learns that Jerry Martinez will be receiving the shipment.

Later on, in the mission The Mugshot Longshot, Lance uses Forbes's ID card to prove to Armando Mendez that Jerry Martinez tried to steal Mendez's cocaine. He sticks Martinez's photo onto Forbes's ID card to fabricate that Martinez is a DEA agent.

The official GTA Vice City Stories website features a news report referring to Forbes as "Agent BF" from the FBI with pictures of him with his face blurred.

Mission Appearances

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories



  • In the beta version of GTA Vice City Stories, Forbes didn't have a bag over his head after being captured by Lance & Vic.
  • There might have been a different story line with Forbes, as in one of the screenshots of GTA Vice City Stories prior to release date shows Vic Vance driving Forbes while being shot at by the Mendez Brothers. This resembles the mission So Long Schlong albeit instead of Reni, Forbes appears.
  • Forbes' outfit is similar to one of the iconic looks worn by Sonny Crockett (also a police officer) in the television series Miami Vice, which heavily inspired the two Vice City games.
