Bomb Da Base Act II is a mission in Grand Theft Auto III given to protagonist Claude by explosives expert 8-Ball from his shop in Saint Mark's, Portland Island, Liberty City.


8-Ball, knowing about the meeting after a phone call from Salvatore Leone, tells Claude that he needs $100,000 for the explosives and tells Claude to return when he has the money. After obtaining the necessary money, Claude returns to 8-Ball's and the two head to Portland Harbor, with 8-Ball giving Claude a Sniper Rifle. After arriving at Portland Harbor, Claude gets a good vantage point and begins to kill the Colombian Cartel gang members guarding the Les Cargo container ship, with 8-Ball planting the explosives. He detonates the explosives, just getting off the ship's bridge before it sinks.


8-Ball: Yo my man! Salvatore phoned ahead, but a job like this is gonna need a lot of fireworks. I'll need $100,000 to cover expenses, but you know with me you get a lot of bang for your buck. Come back brother when you have the money.

(Claude collects the $100,000 necessary)

8-Ball: Okay, let's do this thing! I can set this baby to detonate, but I still can't use a piece with these hands. Here, this rifle should help you pop some heads!

(Claude and 8-Ball travel to Portland Harbor)

8-Ball: Get a good vantage point then I'll head in when you fire the first shot.


The reward for completing the mission is $150,000. Completing the mission unlocks the Last Requests mission.


  • The container ship used by the Colombian Cartel also appears in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, docked in Viceport.
  • If the player is on the ship when it explodes then the player will not die, but will reappear back on land, but the Cartel Cruisers are gone.
  • The name of the mission is reused for the "Bomb Da Base II" multiplayer mode in Grand Theft Auto IV, where players are similarly tasked to collect explosives and place them within a ship (Platypus) to destroy it.
  • The player will still get the cutscene that shows 8-Ball telling Claude that he needs $150,000 even if they already have the money.
