Gun Runner is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City given to protagonist Tommy Vercetti from arms dealer Phil Cassidy from his depot in Little Haiti, Vice City.


After the successful bank heist, Phil phones Tommy saying he can receive some extra weaponry. Tommy drops by his depot, where Phil has been tampering with his boomshine. Tommy arrives to find Phil running away from the boomshine and shouts to Tommy to run. They dive to the ground when the boomshine detonates, which destroys a nearby Walton. Afterwards he tells Tommy about a Mexican arms dealer who does his weekly run at that time. He then tells him he needs to ram the weapons of the back of the trucks to attain them. Then after destroying the trucks, he then locates the four trucks and collects the weapons (a Python, SPAS 12, M-60, and a MAC-10) and then destroys the trucks while being pursued by Pedro Garcia's backup people riding Faggios.


(Phil's Place, Tommy Vercetti and Phil Cassidy)

Tommy Vercetti: Phil?

Phil Cassidy: RUN! RUUUUUUN!


Phil Cassidy: Hoooooweeeeee! Never get a naked flame too close to one of Phil Cassidy's Boomshine stills!

Tommy Vercetti: Shit Phil, you drink that stuff?

Phil Cassidy: Hell, you don't have to drink it - just a good whiff will set you off. Hoowwee!

Tommy Vercetti: Listen Phil, you said you could fix me up with some firepower...

Phil Cassidy: Sure thing. There's some Mexican gun-runner been doing me for business of late. He does his weekly run about now. Ram his hardware off the back of his trucks before he goes to ground. And you'd be doing me a favor while you're at it. Then finish him off.


The reward for completing the mission is $2,000, plus $100 for every Faggio driver killed, and the mission Boomshine Saigon is unlocked.
