Welcome to Vice City. Welcome to the 1980s.

Having just made it back onto the streets of Liberty City after a long stretch in maximum security, Tommy Vercetti is sent to Vice City by his old boss, Sonny Forelli. They were understandably nervous about his re-appearance in Liberty City, so a trip down south seemed like a good idea. But all does not go smoothly upon his arrival in the glamorous, hedonistic metropolis of Vice City. He's set up and is left with no money and no merchandise. Sonny wants his money back, but the biker gangs, Cuban gangsters, and corrupt politicians stand in his way. Most of Vice City seems to want Tommy dead. His only answer is to fight back and take over the city himself.

[edit] Weapons

In GTA Vice City, there are a total of 33 weapons which can be acquired. If you have none, you'll be stuck with your fists, which of course aren't very effective for killing large amounts of armed gang members. Below are details of each of the available weapons.

Weapon Description
Fist HUD Icon Fist - Sure, not the best weapon in Vice City, but if you want to be a man and just whoop some ass with your bare hands, we understand. Nothing better to do that with other than you good ol' fists.
Brass Knuckle HUD Icon Brass Knuckle - The brass knuckle is an upgrade from your bare, bloody fists. They do more damage. Instead of many swings of the arm, you only need one or two swings with these metal fists of fury.
Screw Driver HUD Icon Screw Driver - The screwdriver looks to be just some joke, but this little thing can damage vehicles and kill people. Pretty impressive. The screwdriver is really fun to play around with mainly because of that fact. You can find screwdrivers being sold at tool shops all over Vice City.
Hammer HUD Icon Hammer - The hammer is another melee weapon that can kill people and destroy vehicles. Though not as impressive as the screwdriver, (mainly because of the common sense involved), the hammer can do a lot more damage faster. The hammer you can also buy at a local tool store.
Golf Club HUD Icon Golf Club - Nothing like whacking poor pedestrians with the thick metal of the good ol' golf club. A good weapon to defend yourself with while being chased by the law in the golf course. (provided that you ran out of weapons and not a cheater.)
Night Stick HUD Icon Night Stick - If you're crazy enough, you just might want to take the dead police man's night stick instead of his Colt .45. If you do, you can have the guilty pleasure of beating pedestrians over the head. Very, very fun.
Baseball Bat HUD Icon Baseball Bat - Your everyday sports item turned classic kneecap "adjustment" tool. Not much to it really- 'tis long, heavy, and made of wood. Just grab the narrow bit and bludgeon people with the rather blunt end. Batter up! It's available from your hideout right at the start.
Knife HUD Icon Knife - Unfortunately, you can't slit pedestrian's throats (like in San Andreas), however, you CAN hack them up. This is funnier than the nightstick.
Meat Cleaver HUD Icon Meat Cleaver - The meat clever is like the infest's father. Instead of hacking cow and pig meat, these "Vice City Meat Cleavers" hack up human flesh. No one better to demonstrate this action other than Tommy Vercetti, a crazed man indeed.
Machete HUD Icon Machete - The machete is just like the knife and meat clever, but with this bad boy, you can really do some damage. Try it out yourself.
Katana HUD Icon Katana - A Samurai sword. You can literally hack pedestrian's heads off with this toy. When it's in Tommy Vercetti's hands, it's referred to as "a Samurai sword on crack".
Chainsaw HUD Icon Chainsaw - The chainsaw is the baddest of them all. If you give as much as a simple rev of its low-horsepowered engine, people are screaming. Very scary indeed. Good thing YOU are the man with it, though. So you can enjoy it.
Grenade HUD Icon Grenade - A regular frag grenade that can be thrown up to approximately 30 feet maximum. This grenade is used for many U.S. forces tasks. It blows up in a total of three seconds. Just enough to run away from the blast. It's a good weapon to use in crowded areas. Of course, that's mainly why grenades exist.
Tear Gas HUD Icon Tear Gas - The tear gas is a gas that's ejected from its shell when you throw it. Again, good for crowded areas, but the assurance of killing with this grenade are low. This tear gas can only be found behind the Police H.Q. in Washington Beach.
Molotov Coctail HUD Icon Molotov Coctail - When this hits the ground from a powerful throw, flames burst out. Similar to a phosphorus grenade, but it happens in an instant. Make sure you don't throw it close to yourself or you, too, will go up in flames.
Bomb & Detonator HUD Icon Bomb & Detonator - The bomb can be planted into your car at 8 Ball's bomb service in the dock area of Vice City. Simply arm the bomb by pressing the "attack" button. Then, anytime from that point on, you can blow the car to smithereens. If the grenade just isn't working, plan ahead and use the car.
Colt .45 HUD Icon Colt .45 - This is the gun all the cops use, not very good. You can get it at your hideout by collecting 10 hidden packages.
Colt Python HUD Icon Colt Python - The .45 Colt Python is just a regular revolver. It only carries 8 rounds at a time, but it can kill just about anybody with one bullet. It's also very, very powerful. Psychotic killer Tommy Vercetti can barely handle the kick.
Chromed Shotgun HUD Icon Chromed Shotgun - The least favourite shotgun. Why? Because it's another police-carried weapon. They can be found in parked police cars when you enter them. (Providing that they're not locked on you.) The gun isn't all that terrible, though. This pump shotgun can still kill just about anybody with one blow.
Stubby Shotgun HUD Icon Stubby Shotgun - Though not as fast as the SPAZ-12's firing, this shotgun can still put a well sized hole in somebody with one blow. A good weapon for taking self defence against the law.
SPAZ-12 Shotgun HUD Icon SPAZ-12 Shotgun - This gun is probably one of the most destructive barrel gun in the game.
Tec-9 HUD Icon Tec-9 - The Tec-9 is not a very fast-firing machine pistol, but it's clip capacity is the greatest of all of the machine pistols. A great choice in huge fights that include low-powered weapons.
Ingram Mac 10 HUD Icon Ingram Mac 10 - If you want a fast-firing gun, this thing would be your best choice. With this baby, you can run and shoot at the same time. One of the most impressive guns in the game. Did I mention it was cheap too?
Uzi 9mm HUD Icon Uzi 9mm - For you cheaters out there, this gun is only available from a store or your own "Mario" gang. This popular sub-machine gun really kicks some ass in Vice City. Not as exciting or rapid-firing as the Ingram Mac 10, but it has enough power to finish off eight people in 2 seconds. If you find or purchase an Uzi, make it last.
MP5 Long Version HUD Icon MP5 Long Version - The MP5 is used in many U.S. forces operations, (Just like the grenade and M4 assault rifle.) but usually only the Navy or Marines actually use it. Another fun gun to mow people with.
Kruger HUD Icon Kruger - The kruger is not that great of a gun. Plain and simple. If you use it to arm yourself in low-supply situations, it's understandable, but if not, don't even bother with it. The first person aiming is not that great, but it's even worse when the gun's firing power is slow.
Colt M4 HUD Icon Colt M4 - The Colt M4 is yet another military-use assault rifle. The first person aiming is just like the ruger, but the M4 has a faster firing speed and better firing power than the ruger. It's a good gun to use if you have acquired three felony stars and below, but any higher, you might want to break out the heavy metal listed below.
Rocket Launcher HUD Icon Rocket Launcher - This is the gun you want to use in a four or above felony star situation. Just aim and fire. BOOM! Whatever you shot at is instantly gone. I hope that explains everything.
Colt M60 HUD Icon Colt M60 - Another gun you can't acquire by using cheats. This M60 is also a military gun, but isn't used by anybody but Tommy Vercetti in the game. All it takes is one shot from this machine gun and you've got yourself a kill. (For those tough situations with the cops, it just takes approximately three to five shots with this gun and the car explodes. Very useful indeed.)
Flame Thrower HUD Icon Flame Thrower - If you want to fry your pedestrians instead of just flat-out killing them, this is the king "torture" weapon. The ammo for the flamethrower goes fast so be efficient. Just fry if you absolutely need to.
Minigun HUD Icon Minigun - The "king" weapon of Vice City. As much as a streak of bullets from this mini-gun, will simply annihilate anything in your way. The cops might want to change their mind about the chase when they see you whip this thing out of your pocket.
Sniper Rifle HUD Icon Sniper Rifle - For those people who you just can't reach, but want to kill for some reason. The firing range on this gun will strike a pedestrian without him or her even knowing what hit them. A very fun weapon.
PSG-1 Laser Sniper Rifle HUD Icon PSG-1 Laser Sniper Rifle - This sniper rifle is just better than the other one. Not only does it have a better aim, it as lo has a better range. If you have to decide between sniper rifles, this should be your choice. (Please note that there is really no difference between the two snipers other than the two things I just mentioned.)
