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 a valuable merchandise that a courier will be delivering for him. Tommy offers Cortez help to retrieve the merchandise. Once the cutscene is finished, stop by the nearby Ammu-Nation first and pick up an Ingram Mac-10. When you get to the mall, head up to the escalator to meet up your contact. Sadly, the deal is interupped by a bunch of GIGN officers. He heads right for a bike around the corner, so if you so desire you can destroy it before meeting him. If you decide to chase him down, ignore the other bike placed temptingly in your path and carjack something a bit sturdier - at this stage, bikes are difficult to control, and you want just stomp him. Knock him off then reverse over him or pull up alongside and blast him with the Ingram, once he's dead, pick up the guidance chips and head back to the Marina.


(Cortez's yacht, Tommy Vercetti and Colonel Cortez)

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...
