Get a motorbike (the police bike is recommended) and head to Diaz's mansion on Starfish Island. Wheelie onto the rail of his steps, then look right (as if you are doing a drive-by). Wait until it sinks slightly into the rail before getting off the bike. You will fall underneath the steps and land just outside while the bike explodes
To make things easier, stand and fight when it is safe and run when it is not. First, equip yourself properly with a shotgun with at least 10 shells and an AK47 with at least 70 rounds. You should also know how Lance behaves during this mission. Lance will follow you as long he can see you. If you sprint while he sees you, he will also sprint. Do not make any sharp turns around corners because, if he loses sight of you, he will run to the closest wall along the path to get to you and just run against the wall. Before entering the pink marker, equip the shotgun. At the start, go to pickup your brother at the airport. He makes you wait, then he surprises you. Go home. The Cholos will then try to exact revenge on you. Once you regain control of Vic, hit as many Cholos as you can. The trick to keeping your car free of damage is to kill every Cholo shooting at your vehicle. Aim for the heads of individuals and the tires of moving cars. Don't make vehicles explode since it could damage your car as well. If firing at a stationary cars, just fire away so the explosions kill nearby Cholos. If you reach the end, Lance will make "one more Lance Vance Chance". After Vic and Lance argue, it is time to flee. When the second part starts, equip the shotgun and run towards the Cholo infront of you. Kill as many Cholos in front of you as possible, then run down the street towards the water. It is critical that Lance can see you at all times. Keep your eye on traffic and stay to the right. Make sure Lance doesn't get run over by a car. Once you have Lance in tow, keep running down the street and cross Bayshore Avenue. Stay in the grassy area and hang out with Lance since you will be mostly safe from harm. You must kill all the Cholos that are represented by red blips on your radar, but you will now have the upper hand. Equip the AK47 and return towards the Cholos. They will be making their way towards you, but the AK's long range means you can kill the Cholos without them being able to target you with their SMGs. Lance will not be able to engage them either, which will keep him safe as well. Once you kill all the Cholos, take Lance home.
Start a new game or have a saved game where Victor still works for the army. Get into a car in the base and drive out the right door, then go forward until half the car has passed the yellow line. Walk out and take a few steps to your left, then enable the "Spawn Rhino tank" code. The tank will spawn where you are standing but you will be stuck in there until you reload the game or kill yourself.
To easily destroy durable vehicles (such as tanks and Army trucks), throw Molotov Cocktails at them. Tanks usually take about three to five Molotovs, while Army trucks and others like it take about two Molotovs. Almost every other vehicle only requires one Molotov to be destroyed. Note: A Flamethrower is also effective. However, if confronted by a massive group of tanks and trucks, you better have lots of health, armor, and ammunition.
Steal a Banshee and, only by ramming objects, break the hood off the Banshee. Then, crash the car at high speeds front-first into a telephone pole. For the trick to work, you must hit the pole directly in the center of the engine. The car will now be skewered by the pole and cannot be removed.
Unlock the following Weapons Tiers by pressing the corresponding sequences of buttons during gameplay. To get infinite ammunition, repeatedly enable the code until no ammunition number appears beneath the gun pictures:
The actual "Easter egg" from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is back in Vice City Stories in the exact same location, literally under construction. Go to the bridge that leads to Prawn Island from the east side of Vice City. If you are coming directly from the Ammu-Nation, it will be on your left. It is the VCN building. Walk into the arrow to be on top of the VCN building. Walk up the ramps to get to the helipad and see that a part of the helipad touches the neighboring building. Run and jump into the window. If you hit it in the correct location, you go through the wall and see the Easter Egg from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, only it is still being made. It is a red metal frame (like a building that is under construction) and has a construction arm working on it. Also, the stand it rests on has a sign that has a smiley face and scribbles.
