Loose Ends
Game GTA Vice City
For Mr. Black
Target Take a briefcase with drugs to the Helipad in Escobar International Airport
Location Cherry Popper Ice Cream Factory, Little Havana, Vice City
Reward $16,000
Unlocked by No Escape?

Loose Ends is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City given to protagonist Tommy Vercetti by Mr. Black in Little Havana, Vice City, near the Cherry Popper Ice Cream Factory.


Tommy answers the ringing payphone in Little Havana. Mr. Black knows of an exchange taking place on the roof of the Cherry Poppers Ice Cream Company. He wants Tommy to collect their merchandise. Tommy enters the compound behind the factory and opens fire on several armed gunmen around the area. He manages to reach the roof of the factory and obtains a breifcase with the merchandise. Using the Maverick nearby, Tommy brings the breifcase to the helipad at Escobar International Airport.


Mr. Black: There is a valuable exchange taking place on the roof of the Cherry Popper Ice Cream Company. Kill everyone involved, steal the merchandise and take it to the helipad at the airport. There is a gate to your left that leads to the back of the factory.


The reward for completing the mission is $16,000 and the completion of the assassinations mission.


Doing this mission the "right way" can be very costly to your bullets. The factory backyard is infested with a flock of enemies and clearing the whole place will most likely be both ammo- and time-consuming.

There is a fast way out of this, which saves your ammo and especially your patience. Arrive at the payphone with a helicopter (The Maverick on top the Vercetti Estate would be the nearest one) and start the mission. Use your helicopter to land on the nearby building on the left side of the factory (assuming that you are flying from the payphone's direction). Snipe every single enemy on the roof where the briefcase is. This allows you to sprint-jump on the factory's roof with no lethal force ahead, picking up the briefcase and escaping to the airport with the helicopter provided nearby.


  • The Loose Ends level in Modern Warfare 2 possibly could be named after this. As in both of them required to get something then escape via helicopter.
