Phil: "Sure thing. There's some Mexican gun-runner been doing me for business of late."
Tommy Vercetti meets Phil Cassidy in his depot

Gun Runner is the first mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City given to protagonist Tommy Vercetti from arms dealer Phil Cassidy from his depot in Little Haiti, Vice City.

Mission

After the successful bank heist, Phil phones Tommy saying he can receive some extra weaponry. He goes over to his depot to find Phil, who, having just accidentally exposed one of his boomshine stills to an open flame, comes running around the corner and screams at Tommy to run. They barely flee to a safe distance when the detonation of the still destroys a Walton. Phil tells Tommy about a Mexican arms dealer named Pedro Garcia who is doing his weekly run. Phil then asks Tommy to steal the weapons shipment. Tommy rams the gun runners' trucks until the weapon crates fall out, smashes the crates, collects the weapons (a .357, SPAS 12, M60, and MAC-10) and finally kill all the gun runners in the trucks while being pursued by many Faggio-riding backup, completing the mission.

Trivia

  • The Waltons used by the gun runners in this mission have a unique white paint job, to obtain it, destroy the last one in a garage will reset the doors, which repairs it after mission completion.
    • Similarly, the Walton in the cutscene features different rims and a unique light-blue paint job, though the cut-scene version is unobtainable. This is the same Walton that Phil owned in 1984, only with a different paintjob. The cutscene Walton's wheels have the classic rims texture from Grand Theft Auto III.
  • The player needs to be careful upon exiting the vehicle; if they haven't gunned down the Walton driven by a gun runner, the player will be run over recklessly and will quickly become Wasted.
  • The player will receive a bonus $100 for each Faggio biker he kills.
  • For some reason, if the Walton explodes with the crate, it still falls off and breaks normally.
  • It's possible for Tommy to snipe through the glass and not hit the driver but instead the crate, which breaks it and drops the weapon.
