Victor and Lance Vance discover Forbes' betrayal

The Bum Deal is the final mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories given to protagonist Victor Vance by undercover cop Bryan Forbes from the abandoned apartment complex in Little Haiti, Vice City.


Lance and Victor go to the house they've tied Bryan Forbes, looking for more information on a big shipment coming to Vice City. Forbes tells them that the contact who knows about the shipment is at the White Stallionz Bar. Victor and Lance drive over to the bar but while entering they're surrounded by White Stallionz gay white supremacist bikers who attack them. After all the Bikers are dead, the Vance brothers leave the bar to go and get Forbes. But upon arriving at the house, Forbes has freed himself and attempts to escape on a moped. They chase him and Victor kills Forbes as well as dropping Lance at his hotel.

Post-Mission Pager Message

Aunt Enid: Lance tells me he's running things down there. He's such a good kid...


There is no monetary reward for completing this mission, but the mission From Zero to Hero is unlocked, if the mission Snitch Hitch has also been completed.


Victor Vance goes to meet Lance Vance at the abandoned apartment in Little Haiti, where he's interrogating Bryan Forbes for information.
Lance: I know there's a major shipment coming in real soon. I've been to your apartment and I've read your files.
Forbes: Yeah, yeah, yeah, I was gonna tell you about that. The contact is at the White Stallionz bar. They'll give you exactly what you need.
Lance: You better not be screwing us!
Forbes: Me? Gimme a break, I'm your best buddy!
Vic and Lance head to the White Stallionz Bar, a place full of white supremacist homosexual bikers.
Victor: Something's not right about this place...
Lance: Yeah! I didn't know bikers were into disco.
Victor: I think Forbes has fucked us again.
Stallionz Member #1: Your kind ain't welcome here.
Stallionz Member #2: I wanna bareback the little one.
Lance: Aw, shit, it's two for one at the boys' club...shit!
Vic and Lance fight off the White Stallionz bikers in the bar.
Lance: Man, Forbes screwed us again! Let's get back and screw him - metaphorically speaking.
Vic and Lance head back to the apartment, only to find that Forbes freed himself and attempts to escape on a Ventoso.
Lance: What the hell? That's Forbes! Get him!
Vic and Lance chase down Forbes, and Vic kills him.
Lance: Aw, man, I didn't mean for us to kill him.
Victor: It's a little late now, Lance.
Vic and Lance head back to 1412 Hoarmont Avenue.
Lance: I know there was something to this big shipment he was talking about, and I'm gonna find out. Later, man.


Video Walkthrough


  • This mission's plot may be a parody of a recurring joke in the Police Academy film whereby a character would be lured to a gay bar under false pretenses. In this case, Victor and Lance are lured to the bar under the pretense that a contact who knows about their heroin shipment is there.
  • The mission's name is a double entendre; it refers both to the fact that Forbes set Vic and Lance up, and it most likely is also a reference to anal sex, which is associated with homosexual men, since it is set in a gay bar.
  • The two Freeways and the WinterGreen outside of The Stallionz Bar as well as Forbes' Ventoso in this mission all have higher horsepower compared to their regular counterparts.
  • After Forbes is killed, he drops an MP5, which can normally be bought at Ammu-Nation only after the mission "From Zero to Hero".
  • The song looping inside the gay bar is "Don't Go" by Yazoo. This song is also featured on the radio station Wave 103.
