"I'll see Love Fist burn, Love Fist ruined my life!"
―The Psycho.

Psycho Killer is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City given to the protagonist Tommy Vercetti by the rock band Love Fist from their recording studio in Downtown, Vice City.


Kent Paul and a paranoid Love Fist band informs Tommy that a psycho killer wants Love Fist dead. Tommy drives in the Love Fist limo to Rock City where Love Fist plans to have a signing in order to draw the psycho out. When Tommy arrives, the cross-dressing psycho kills a security guard and blames Love Fist for ruining his life. The psycho escapes in his Sentinel as Tommy pursues him. Tommy eventually chases him down and seemingly kills him, completing the mission.

Mission Objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Drive the limo to the signing event and try to draw the psycho out.
  • Get the Psycho! Don't let him escape!


  • The player must make sure that they keep the psycho in their sights, because although an arrow appears above his vehicle he does not show up on the radar, so the player will lose him if he gets too far away from Tommy's vehicle.
  • If the player is quick, he an actually park a PCJ-600 well away from the record store (parking it close by will cause it to disappear once the mission starts), then the player can enter the mission marker to begin the mission, once the cut scene ends, he can drive the limo to the PCJ, get out and hop on the bike instead to begin the chase. The PCJ has plenty of speed to catch up with the Psycho and also can shoot forward instead of just side to side, making it cinch to complete this mission.


The reward for completing this mission is $4,000 and the mission Publicity Tour is unlocked provided the mission Hog Tied for Mitch Baker has been completed.




  • The name of this mission is a reference to the 1977 Talking Heads song of the same name.
  • The psycho can actually be easily spotted in the waiting line since he walks like a man, instead of swaying his hip like a woman.
