Head to Vice Point. The people there have been ripping me off for years. Remove them and set up shop. We need a place to distribute our product over there.
Armando Mendez

Hostile Takeover is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories given to protagonist Victor Vance by drug kingpins Diego and Armando Mendez from their mansion in Prawn Island, Vice City.


Victor Vance pays the Mendez brothers a visit, and Armando bewares him of some Bikers at Vice Point who have not paid their debts back to the Mendez Cartel and that he wants to get rid of them. Vic goes to the empire site and kills all the attacking Bikers. After a while, some other Bikers escape on their Angels. Vic chases and kills all the Bikers, thus completing the mission.

Mission Objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Go to the business site.
  • Kill those bikers.
  • Kill those remaining bikers.

Post-Mission Pager Message

Lance: Get your ass over here, Bro'!


Upon completing the mission, the player is rewarded $1,000 and the empire site in Vice Point, which was owned by the Bikers is automatically transferred to the Vance Crime Family.


Video Walkthrough


  • Vic tells Armando that he doesn't want to open a drug business, despite the fact that it's already possible to open a drug business after reaching Vice City Beach and taking over any other drug related empire site.
  • The empire site cannot be taken over before the player completes this mission, as there will be no Biker Angel parked in front of the building.
  • The empire site that is taken over will have the weaker bodyguards from the three lower tier businesses wielding Pistols and Baseball Bats, despite being a Medium Venture Drug Running site, which normally has the bodyguards wielding Mac 10s and AK-47s like smuggling or robbery businesses.
