Vice City Hidden Packages Guide

Recommended Posts



user posted image




You may be asking what the point of this is, Vice City is ancient now. However due to the recent hype over Vice City Stories and the inevitable waiting period, a lot of people have been playing Vice City not only to familiarise themselves with the island but also to play through the story, find hints towards VCS, or just to reacquaint themselves with characters and the overall feel of Vice.


This guide will help people find all 100 hidden packages, which is a requirement needed to get 100% on the game overall. In some cases it’s better to start the search for these packages once the entire island is unlocked, for example package #1 can’t be got without cheats until the other areas are unlocked. Some packages are also easier found during missions, which have been listed next to the appropriate package.




10 - Body Armour

20 - Chainsaw

30 - Python

40 - Flamethrower

50 - Laser Scope Sniper Rifle

60 - Minigun

70 - Rocket Launcher

80 - Sea Sparrow

90 - Rhino

100 - Hunter & $100,000


Rewards themselves can be found in a number of places, below is a list of locations.


10-70 of the packages found normally spawn the rewards ay two places, the Ocean View Hotel and the Starfish Island Mansion. However if you purchase the Hyman Condo save-house these rewards will also spawn there, but only after you have found the packages, if you buy it before you find them the rewards will not spawn there.


80 of the packages found will spawn the reward at the Starfish Island Mansion, near the backyard pool.


90 of the packages found will spawn the reward at the Fort Baxter Air Base (do not enter unless wearing the cop uniform).


100 of the packages found will spawn at the Fort Baxter Air Base, if however you complete the game and get all packages this reward will also spawn at the Helipad at Ocean Beach.

The map has markers with numbers on them, each indicating the position of each package. Note that circular ones mean ground level, triangular mean above Tommy so you may need to use stairs or helicopters to get them.

Well I'm not sure if too many people will need this, after Vice City as released 4 years ago tounge.gif.


Good job with the guide though man icon14.gif.

Nice. smile.gificon14.gif


It's about time GTAF got a decent hidden packages guide. I'll let this run for the time being, but once it's had its time I might just merge it with the pinned guides thread. It'll complement the image-based guides (weapons, car locations) nicely.


Good job, Dave.


[EDIT] Led-by magic. wink.gif Be sure to edit that (<) post as well when/if you make any updates!

There are alot of Vice City fans. Plus, with the hype on 'Stories, many people are playing it again.


Great effort Dave! biggrin.gif

Yeah, because nobody plays VC anymore, right? sarcasm.gif People used to tell me that a couple years ago when I was making a GTA3 walkthrough. I STILL have people thanking me.


Wanted to point out a few inaccuracies with the map. It should be noted that these inaccuracies do NOT reflect upon saintdave in any way, but rather the picture itself.


HP15 is in the police station though the map makes it look like it's at the tip of that triangle


HP21 is actually on a small jetty whereas the map makes it look more off the coast.


HP30 is along the western edge of the block. Map suggests east.


HP42 is more centered in that block then the map would suggest.


HP49 is on a small island amongst some water. That map doesn't show the water, so it's harder to see exactly where it is.


HP53 and 54 both are a little more SW than they appear.


HP68 is indicated by an up triangle, but it's really just at the top of a small set of stairs.


HP89 is nowhere near as far away from HP88 as the map suggests.


HP91 and 92 are quite a bit more east than the map would indicate.


HP93 is inside the side hangars, not to the east of them like the map indicates.


HP95 is actually inside the terminal whereas the map makes it look like it's outside.


HP100 is actually roadside despite the map making it look deep inside the base.


Great post, saintdave. Not at all cutting on you for the map. It's the same one I use if I ever forget a spot.

Good Job Dave---


whether the game was put out 4 years ago or not, no member here has put out a guide-- helps to make our forum more complete rather then have to link to another site----


The multi guide has been a work in progress--- and our aim is to make it as complete as possible within the confines of a message board.


Another note regarding the first post though...


it is possible to get every package without cheats and without doing any missions-- the police heli is available from game start-- you just have to get across to the west island

Thanks for all the kind words everyone, it was a hell of an effort, took me 3 days to complete but well worth the effort.


Dem thanks for the fixes on some of the packages I'll edit them into the merged topic soon.


Spuds I was aware you'd be able to get the helicopter, I assume you mean the one on top of the police department? But wouldn’t that count as cheating too? The islands are either closed via gates or roadblocks at the start of the game, use of an ambulance or truck to be able to jump it would surely constitute as cheating?

That would be a trick, not a cheat. It should also be noted that the VCN heli is also available from the start. As is the purchase of Hyman Condo, which will also provide a heli. These two have a radio in them too to make the trips not so boring wink.gif

Who pinned this to steal my thunder from my led-by magic!?


Spuds beat me to recommending you for a fourth star, too. Damned thunder thieves. cryani.gif

No, I know. I assumed you didn't from the manner of your previous post (i.e. strongly mentioning/praising the multi-guide). Perhaps it was Dalp, after awarding Dave his star... No matter, I'm happy to leave it pinned for the time being.

I recently went looking for a game and saw the high ratings on the GTA games. Had never heard of them before. (not a big gamer usually) So I got Vice City and San Andreas at the same time. I didn't even know which was older. Most enjoyable and engrossing PC games I've ever played. So its not just people revisiting the game playing it, I'm sure alot of newbies are too.


I appreciate you guys making these maps. Even using them and carefully marking off the ones I got, I end up with packages missing, right now I'm stuck at 89, I think some are from when I died at the airport and loaded a save file. I guess I'll have to go through the entire list again. I can imagine what It would be like without a map rolleyes.gif

Not sure who pinned and then unpinned it??


As Fuzzy stated before this will eventually be added to the multi guide and will likely be unpinned then (to keep everything nice and tidy)




Oops unlocked and pinned (my mouse must have got away from me)

It's been two months without any addition to the topic, so I've unpinned it as planned.


Remember that the good stuff is permanently available in the Guides/Walkthroughs topic - specifically, here.


Thanks guys.

This is great! I just started a new VC game with the intention of getting 100% and not cheating. San Andreas and Liberty City Stories only made me want to play Vice City more, the game practically never gets old to me. Personally, I don't think that Rockstar's going to be able to top it. I'm looking forward to VC Stories, but I'm not looking forward to having to buy a PSP to play it. Very disappointing. But, since I'm stupid, I probably will.
