Store Robberies are an Activity in GTA Vice City.

Hold up stores in Vice City for a bit of extra cash.

This is an optional endeavor, but it is required for 100% completion of the game. It's not time-sensitive, meaning it can be played at any point, even after the main storyline is completed.

This side activity is also present in GTA San Andreas.

Store Robberies - Activity Details:

Robberies are an activity present in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, allowing the player to steal money from some businesses in Vice City.

There are fifteen stores across Vice City that Tommy is free to enter and hold up. To start a robbery, the player must enter a store aiming any firearm on the cashier. If the player stops aiming at the clerk, they will sound the alarm and duck under the counter, so the player must keep threatening the cashier until money begins appearing on the counter.

Persistently holding the aiming reticule on the cashier will increase the cash received but will also increase the wanted level attained by the player. Therefore:

  • The first cash drop earns $50 and a delayed two-star wanted level.
  • The following cash drop earns an additional $100 and a two-star wanted level.
  • The third cash drop earns $250 (for a total of $400) and a three-star wanted level.
  • The last cash drop earns an extra $600 (up to $1000) with the wanted level remaining at three stars.

Robbing all of the 15 stores in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is required for 100% Completion of the game and awards the "Put 'Em Up" Achievement.
