There's some Mexican gun-runner been doing me for business of late. He does his weekly run about now. Ram his hardware off the back of his trucks before he goes to ground. And you'd be doing me a favor while you're at it. Then finish him off.
Phil Cassidy

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 Phil's 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/Colt Python, 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.

  • Go and knock the arms off the back of the dealers' trucks.

Tommy: Listen Phil, you said you could fix me up with some firepower...
Phil: Sure thing. There's some Mexican gun-runner been doing me for business of late. He does his weekly run about now. (belches) Ram his hardware off the back of his trucks before he goes to ground. And you'd be doing me a favor while you're at it. Then finish him off.

Trivia

  • The Waltons used by the gun runners in this mission have a unique white paint job; it can be obtained by destroying the last one while it's in a garage. This will reset the doors, and 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, they will be run over recklessly and quickly risk being Wasted.
  • The player will receive a bonus $100 for each Faggio biker killed.
  • 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.
