Lance probably had enough of Tommy, called Sonny and told him what really was going down, and tipped him off about Tommy printing fake money, and don't be surprised he screws you over.

 

I'm in agreement though. If Sonny & Lance kill Tommy, Sonny would probably screw Lance over too.

i was playing vc again and still dont understand why lance betrayed tommy for what

 

I always felt as if this was never fully explained and I too always wanted an answer. Some of the speculation here makes sense but I would have thought that R* would have explored it in VCS, but I guess not. confused.gif

Why would that be explored in VCS, when VCS's setting is 1984 and VC's is 1986-VC is 2 years later...? Tommy didn't come to VC until 1986-before that, he was in prison in LC(if you remember the opening movie of VC?) Just a heads up. tounge2.gif

Ha, yeah that wouldn't make sense. I was talking about the lead up to Vice City Stories, before I knew the time setting. I played GTA VC when it first came out, hoping for answers some how.

I don't really care how Lance joined the other side, I am just interested in how Sonny just trusted Lance, I mean, he is from Tommy's side, why would Sonny just trust Lance?

I always pictured Sonny as killing Lance if they managed to takeover the Vercetti Estate. Can't trust a traitor, y'know?

 

Also, @markusizr: ...Panama is a country. In Central America. whatsthat.gif

I think Sonny would of had Lance killed anyway, he was just using him for information and to screw Tommy over, if Sonny would of succeded in killing Tommy he wouldn't need Lance he already had hundreds of other goons.

 

Lance could of betrayed Tommy for a number or reasons. He could of felt like he wasn't treating him like a man, demanded more power or respect, envious of Tommy, or maybe he just snorted to much Cocaine and it went to his head.

Actually, I think of all the protagonists, Tommy was the most loyal to his own inner group. He had all cut a share of the profit throught the last mission.

 

Sure, he sent Ken away later, but that was because Ken got addicted and sooner or later would be liable to do something stupide® than usual. Can`t afford that kind of risk in your bussiness, but note how and where he sent him away.

The Vice City rendition of Vic was so weird. He was really different looking and sounded Spanish.

He is spanish.Dominican so was his brother Lance.

 

He looked different because Vice City was made 4 years before VCS obviously

Here's three reasons why Lance could've betrayed Tommy

 

1. He got that bad experience in VCS when he and Vic were in it with Martinez and the Mendez brothers, and after working with Diaz, he was both shocked and angry at the same time when Diaz ambushed the drug deal that killed his brother. His paranoia got to him, and being the impulsive dumbass he is, he thought that Tommy would be the next to turn on him as soon as he outlives his usefulness since Lance was already useless as f*ck to begin with.

 

2. He was probably jealous that Tommy was the ruler of the city and Lance was just another second man who wanted to be the dominant one since he was always seen as the lapdog whenever he was paired up with someone else, primarily his big brother Vic.

 

3. He was simply high off of that cocaine and didn't think straight.

 

So yeah. Those are the possible reasons I can come up with.

I'm just speculating here (Lance said in VCS, "You've got to speculate to accumulate!"), but what if Lance was hired by Sonny to shadow Tommy throughout? I suppose the events of 'Cap the collector' would conclude that theory doesn't hold up, but I just found it funny that in the beginning of the game Lance always seemed to be around where Tommy was

I disagree, I think they all had reasons to do what they did. Claude was just hired muscle, he wasn't on a side, JD was killed because he used to work for the Sindacco family and couldn't be trusted. CJ used Salvatore as a way to get info on the casino. Woozie was CJ's friend, Sal wasn't. Lance betrayed Tommy for money plain and simple.

Yeah, you have a good point, but to be frank:

Say you've already got 100% completion and for some reason Lance did not betray you in the last mission, and suddenly you got a call for an optional mission to ice Lance that got you say, a new car spawned at Vercettti Estate, or a new outfit like a tuxedo, you'd do it would you?

f*ck no

Lance felt that he was being underappreciated by Tommy and wanted more money than what he was getting.

It wouldn't surprise me tbh, especially Sonny set up the deal, he'd probably know about the Vance brothers and is good for a favor.

He felt like Tommy was f*cking him over and not giving him his proper slice of the gangs profits but like Tommy told him he had to earn those profits he even told Lance if I f*ck up then you can lay into me. He forgets he failed to kill Diaz and had to be rescued by Tommy and sat around drinking instead of collection the protection money. My guess is he decided he'd call Sonny or maybe Sonny called him and worked out a plan to kill Tommy and install Lance as the new leader of the gang and he'd pay tribute to the forelli family.
