Mall Shootout is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City given to protagonist Tommy Vercetti by Juan Cortez from his yacht in Ocean Beach, Vice City.


Cortez has some valuable merchandise that a courier will be delivering for him. Tommy offers himself to pick it up for Cortez as a favor. Tommy drives himself to the meeting point at the Washington Mall and starts talking to the courier. However, the deal is quickly interrupted by GIGN officers. The courier runs off with the merchandise thinking that they followed Tommy to their meeting point. Tommy quickly runs after him and catches up as the courier gets on his bike. Tommy gets on a nearby bike and chases after him. Tommy catches up with the dealer and kills him, then picks up the guidance chips he dropped. While avoiding the gained police attention, Tommy makes it back to the marina and gives the guidance chips to the Colonel.

Juan Cortez: Tommy! Come, join me. This looks delicious, huh? Tapir snout?

Tommy Vercetti: Uhhh... no, no. No, thanks.

Juan Cortez: Tommy, you are like a pampas breeze that has freed me from the stench of corruption, although, I must appear to mourn his passing and carry on with business as usual.

Tommy Vercetti: This isn't getting me any closer to my money...

Juan Cortez: Tommy, my friend, you are not in Liberty now. Here we do things differently. I will continue with my enquiries but in the meantime I have a valuable deal to close.

Tommy Vercetti: A favor for a friend, Cortez?

Juan Cortez: You're a good friend, Tommy. I knew you would not let me down. I need you to meet a courier who has obtained some valuable technology for me...
