The collectibles from the various Grand Theft Auto games, are represented in the form of red balloons in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. This is a reference to the 1984 hit song by Nena called "99 Luftballons", which was featured in the radio station, Wave 103 in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. There are 99 red balloons across Vice City, which the player has to search and burst with a gun. The player has to use manual aim for most of the balloons and some can be placed so high up that the player is forced to use a Sniper Rifle to get a perfect aim and shoot at them. Each tenth burst gives out a reward and a weapon delivered to the safehouses. A new feature in Vice City Stories allows the player to control which red balloons have been burst or which rampages/unique stunt jumps are already completed which makes it easier to keep track.
