El Banco Corrupto Grande is a bank located in Little Havana, Vice City in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. The name is Spanish for "The Big Corrupt Bank ", suggesting the bank is illegitimate. The interior is only accessible after completing the mission "The Job." The offices are restricted and will give the player a four star wanted level should the player enter the area. Money pickups can be found in the manager's office and near the elevator.

The Job

The bank makes only one prominent appearance in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City: during the mission "The Job." In the mission, Tommy Vercetti, Phil Cassidy, Cam Jones and Hilary King robbed the bank of $100,000. The money was the SWAT's "retirement funds," bribes that were taken over the years and kept at the bank in their Flange 9000 safe. When the bank's alarm sounded, the SWAT immediately surrounded the bank and attempted to stop the robbery. Vercetti and Cassidy managed to escape, with the option of Jones being a casualty. King, however, was shot and killed by the SWAT.

Flange 9000 Safe

In the El Banco Corrupto Grande bank, there is a large Flange 9000 safe located underneath the ground floor of the bank, inside the banking vault. In 1986, it contained the SWAT's "retirement funds", which were bribes that were taken over the years and kept inside the bank's Flange 9000 safe for the SWAT to collect once they retired. According to Cam Jones, "it could take hours to crack, or five minutes if you could find the manager". Only the manager knows the key code to the Flange 9000 safe.
