III. THE RAMPAGE LOCATIONS

Below I listed all 35 Rampage Locations and strategies on how to 
complete them. 
 
BEFORE YOU START READING THIS, if you have any trouble finding these 
rampages, go to www.geocities.com/vicecityvisual/ for pictures of the 
rampages. It might help you a lot.
--------------------------------------------------------
1. Kill 30 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with Molotov Cocktails

Location - From the Ocean View Hotel, head south. Keep an eye out on the 
left side for a driveway leading towards the lighthouse. Go down that 
driveway, and the rampage should be near some bushes.

Molotov Cocktail rampages are tricky, because you can easily set 
yourself on fire. The best thing to do for this rampage is to keep your 
distance. Throw the molotovs at packs of gangs, and throw it further by 
holding circle down longer. If the gang members come after you, run away 
so you have enough distance to throw a molotov at them. If it looks like 
you threw it too close, quickly hit square and jump away before it 
explodes. For this rampage, if you get it in location one, try going up 
the steps on the lighthouse and throwing it from there. It makes it 
safer for you.

---------------------------------------------
2. Runover and Kill 30 Gang Members in 2 Minutes

Location - Head down to Ocean Beach. Right before that bay of water 
between the main beach and the lighthouse area is the Rampage icon, down 
by the shore.

Get a car before you pick this one up. You don't want to waste any time 
walking back to the sidewalk area. Drive down, pick up the icon, and 
quickly drive to the sidewalks by the beginning of the beach. Get some 
good speed, and run over all of the gang members that appear on the 
sidewalks. If you are having trouble finding them, try looking backwards 
and then forwards again. A BF Injection works great for this rampage, 
because you can also run over the gang members on the beach. You need a 
lot of speed for it to count as a kill. Just because you run over the 
guy doesn't mean he is dead, so run over them quickly. Go for the large 
groups, and don't slow down so they can pull you out of your car. Good 
luck! 

---------------------------------------------------------
3. Destroy 10 Vehicles in 2 Minutes with the Rocket Launcher

Location - On a hut in the water. You'll need either a helicopter or a 
boat to get to this one. Try a boat first, and if you think it is too 
hard using a boat, you can use a helicopter to make it easier. These 
directions are for the boat. First, go down to the docks, where you did 
the Cortez missions. Go to the second gate, since the first one was 
locked. Grab any boat, and drive out of the dock area. As soon as you 
exit the dock area, head south. You should soon see some huts ahead. The 
rampage is on the only one of the three that isn't completed. It looks 
like crap, it doesn't have the roofs like the others, and the icon 
should be pretty obvious.  If you have trouble finding it, there is a 
picture of it at www.geocities.com/vicecityvisual/

Once you get the Rocket Launcher, you have to destroy 10 vehicles. Since 
you are all the way out here, the only vehicles you can destroy are 
boats. They move rather quickly, so always aim a bit in front of the 
boat before you fire. If no boats are appearing, then try walking around 
and looking back. If you can't seem to destroy ten boats in the given 
time, then try the helicopter approach. Fly the helicopter to the hut 
thing, land it, and quickly pick up the rampage icon and get back in the 
helicopter. Fly to the mainland, so you can blow up cars. Cars are more 
frequent then boats, so it makes it much easier. There is a way to 
cheat, but most of you think cheating is wrong. IF it comes to this, 
enter the blow up all cars code (R2, L2, R1, L1, L2, R2, Square, 
Triangle, Circle, Triangle, L2, L1). Remember, cheating is wrong!

Alternate Strategy - The easiest approach to this rampage is simply not 
to move after picking up the rampage icon, i.e. do not leave the stairs 
and turn east so you're facing the easternmost of the three huts. You 
will find that there are two "routes" of vehicles that you can 
easily aim at from this position without any danger of hitting parts of 
the hut you're standing on (and thus blowing yourself up and losing 
precious seconds). One of the routes is left at 10 o'clock (NE), the 
boats that spawn there will go from left to right, i.e. towards the 
rocks and the eastern hut. The other route is at 2 o'clock (SE), 
vehicles spawning there will come towards your hut and pass it to your 
right. Just keep turning towards one of those two routes, wait two or 
tree seconds for one or more vehicles to appear, take them out and point 
yourself towards the other route. If no vehicle appears for three 
seconds, look at the previous route again. (Credits to the anonymous 
coward) 
 


---------------------------------------------------
4. Kill 25 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with the Shotgun

Location - On top of the Washington Mall. If you don't know where this 
is, just kill yourself, and when you start at the hospital, it will be 
right in front of you. Walk around the outside of the mall until you see 
the spiral parking lot with neon lining. Walk up the parking lot, all 
the way to the roof. The rampage is on the other end of the roof, by 
that blocked off staircase. 

The tricky thing about the shotgun is that most of the time; it doesn't 
kill in one shot. So when you target a gang member, once he hits the 
ground, shoot him a few times until you see your kill count go up. You 
can shoot the gang members in the mall from the roof, but if that isn't 
working for you, just jump down into the mall and fight them. If you 
want one-shot kills, try walking really close to the gang members. 
Close-range shots usually do kill in one shot, but the longer distance 
shots take a few hits to kill. This one shouldn't be much of a problem.

------------------------------------------------
5. Kill 10 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with a Katana

Location - From the hospital in Washington, head south down the road in 
front of it. After the first left turn, there should be a bunch of 
houses, with small sidewalks behind bush-fences. The rampage is in the 
second set of houses in that area, between two houses and behind a tree. 
If you look on your radar, there will be a gray L shaped road, apart 
from the main black ones. It is inside that L area. If you have trouble 
finding it, there is a picture of it at 
www.geocities.com/vicecityvisual/

The Katana is pretty simple to use. Just walk up to a pack of gang 
members, and rapidly tap circle. He will make random slashes and kicks 
at them. It takes a few slashes to kill a gang member. The key is to 
wait for them to fall down, then kick them and stab them while they are 
on the ground. You should only have to do this to a few groups to get 
ten kills.

-------------------------------------------------
6. Kill 20 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with a Chainsaw

Location - This is in the same block as the last rampage. Go around the 
other side of this area, and you should see a wall with an open gate. It 
has a sign on it that says "TO LET". Just walk inside the area, and the 
rampage should be directly on your left. 

Note - another way to get here is to go to Rafael's. It is across the 
street from the clothes shop.

The chainsaw is easy to kill people with. Just one slash in the right 
area and they are dead. What I did for this one was just find a pack of 
gang members, and run into them while holding circle. I get multiple 
kills doing this. You don't have to continue to hold circle while he 
lifts up the chainsaw and jabs it into their mangled corpse, which is 
just for entertainment. 20 kills should be no problem for this one.

----------------------------------------------
7. Kill 25 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with a PSG-1

Location - From the Ocean View Hotel, head south and take the first 
right. At the end of this road, you should see a parking garage with 
green vines growing all over it. Go inside the garage and drive up to 
the roof. There should be a double-ramp in one of the corners. Walk up 
to the ramp and walk off, landing on a roof below. The rampage icon is 
at the corner of the roof you are now on. If you have trouble finding 
it, there is a picture of it at www.geocities.com/vicecityvisual/

The PSG-1 is semi-automatic. This means that every time you press 
circle, a shot will be fired, unlike that other cheap rifle. So fire as 
fast as you want! I just aim at a bunch of gang members in a circle, and 
then I fire rapidly. If you see a red dot ANYWHERE on the gang member, 
he is dead once you press circle. Any shots, even foot shots kill. If 
you can't find any gangsters walking around, just zoom out and zoom in 
again and you should see some. By the way, don't make the mistake of 
walking off the roof.

---------------------------------------------
8. Kill 25 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with the M4

Location - From the hospital, head south and take the first right. As 
you head down that road, you should see two buildings with steps leading 
up to them on the right side. Head up the stairs of the second building, 
and the rampage icon is on a wall to your right. To get up on the wall, 
either park a car there and jump on the car, then to the wall, or get a 
running start and jump real quick. If you are really bad at getting it, 
just use a helicopter.

Alternate way - Instead of getting a helicopter, just get back to the 
hospital, don't leave the hospital premises but walk around it to the 
left (south). You will find yourself between the hospital on your right 
and the first of the two buildings on your left. Walk a couple of steps 
to the east and the second building and the rampage icon will be 
visible. No need to jump or fly. (Thanks to the anonymous coward) 
 


The M4 is an assault rifle, so you have to use manual aim to kill 
people. I just aim at packs of gang members and let it fire until they 
are all dead. You may find that the recoil with the M4 is a problem. 
That is when your aim gets moved every time you fire. To solve this, 
simply crouch down and it lessens the movement of your crosshairs. The 
best spot for this rampage is on the corner of the ledge where you just 
found the icon, crouching down and picking off gang members on the 
street.

---------------------------------------------
9. Kill 25 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with an MP5

Location - Start at Starfish Island, and take the bridge that leads to 
the large east island. As soon as you get off the bridge, go up the 
stairs that are on your right. You should be in an area with a pool and 
some hotels. Drive around to the rectangular building with a moat-like 
pool surrounding it. On the front steps of the east side is the rampage 
icon. If you have trouble finding it, there is a picture of it at 
www.geocities.com/vicecityvisual/

Just because the MP5 is a submachine gun doesn't mean that you can kill 
people in a vehicle with it. You have to shoot the gang members on foot 
for the kill to count. Just walk around the hotel area and groups of 
gang members should appear. Target one, shoot, target another, shoot, 
and so on. Once the group is dead, go find another group of gangs. The 
MP5 has a long range of accuracy, so you can keep your distance while 
shooting. 

--------------------------------------------------
10. Kill 30 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with the SPAS-12

Location - From the Ocean View Hotel, head north along that main road 
until it comes to an end (when it sharply turns west). When it stops 
heading north, go around back of the big hotel in front of you. There 
are two rampages back here. The one I am talking about right now is 
between some bushes and the hotel wall. This is on the side of the hotel 
that is facing the beach. If you have trouble finding it, there is a 
picture of it at www.geocities.com/vicecityvisual/

It can kill in one shot, yet you are able to fire 8 shots into the body 
before you have to reload. This racks up the kill count really fast. 
Just target a group of gang members, fire a few shots, and the whole 
group should be dead. Remember, this an automatic shotgun. I find the 
most gang members just hanging out on the beach, in the sand, and some 
are on the sidewalk right near the beach. You have plenty of time to 
complete this one. 

WARNING - It has been brought to my attention that if you fail this 
rampage, it will not appear again. So make sure you complete it the 
first time!

User tip - If you do rampage 11, rampage 10 should appear there right 
after you complete rampage 11, same spot as rampage 11. Thanks to 
docrogers for bringing this up.

-------------------------------------------------
11. Kill 10 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with the PSG-1

Location - This one is located behind the same hotel. Walk further back, 
and you should see a small fence. Jump over it or walk around it, and 
you will be in an area with a drained pool, some picnic tables, people 
walking around, and a glass dome structure. The rampage icon is on top 
of the diving board by the pool. Just walk up all of the steps to get to 
the top. Once you have the icon, don't jump off! This is a great vantage 
point.

This is one of the easiest rampages in the game. 10 kills, with a semi-
automatic rifle, from a great vantage point. Just aim below, and you 
should see a few groups of gang members. Rapidly fire at them, and just 
kill off a few groups. You should be able to get 10 kills during the 
first minute. As I said before, if you don't see any more gang members, 
zoom out, look around, and then zoom back in.

-----------------------------------------------------------
12. Drive-by and Waste 35 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with an Uzi

Location - From the bridge on Starfish Island, head east until you get 
off the bridge. Once you get off the bridge, take the first left you 
see, heading north. Follow that road all the way to the end; don't get 
off at any turns. You should end up at a cul-de-sac. The rampage will be 
pretty obvious once you get there, it is right near the water.

I find it easiest to use a motorcycle for this one. Keep at a decent 
rate of speed while shooting, so the gang members can't pull you off the 
bike. The good thing about the bike is that you can shoot forward while 
driving. Just drive around the cul-de-sac in circles, while shooting. 
Remember, it has to be a drive-by for the kill to count.

-----------------------------------------------------
13. Kill 20 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with a Chainsaw

Location - Get to the bridge that leads from the east island to Leaf 
Links. Before you get on the bridge, you should see an opening in the 
wall on your right, and there will be some docks by the water. Head down 
there, and the rampage should be by the docks, somewhat close to the 
bridge. If you have trouble finding it, there is a picture of it at 
www.geocities.com/vicecityvisual/

This is what I said for the other chainsaw rampage - The chainsaw is 
easy to kill people with. Just one slash in the right area and they are 
dead. What I did for this one was just find a pack of gang members, and 
run into them while holding circle. I get multiple kills doing this. You 
don't have to continue to hold circle while he lifts up the chainsaw and 
jabs it into their mangled corpse, which is just for entertainment. 20 
kills should be no problem for this one.

--------------------------------------------------------
14. Kill 30 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with a Rocket Launcher

Location - This one is in the North Point Mall. If you don't know where 
the North Point Mall is, look on the map that came with the game. It is 
pretty obvious. Once inside the mall, get to the second floor. Near 
Countdown Vinyl, the store with the windows you can break right above 
the food court, there is a planter area with some trees. The rampage is 
in there.

Always make sure you keep a good distance when firing the rocket 
launcher. If you fire it too close, you may end up inflicting harm on 
yourself. My best advice is to climb up on a ledge, and fire rockets 
down below at gang members. They are in packs, as always, so it should 
only take a few well-placed rockets to get 30 kills. Watch out for the 
police, though, they can get in your way right as you go to fire a 
rocket.

---------------------------------------------
15. Kill 35 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with an M4

Location - Get to the east entrance of the North Point Mall. Right 
outside of the doors, behind a small wall, is the rampage icon. There 
may be more than one east entrance, so check both.

The M4 is for manual aim, as I said before. To control your aim, crouch 
down so it won't go out of control when you fire. I find it easiest to 
walk up to packs of gangs and just open fire at point blank. If the gang 
members don't show up after you kill a bunch, try walking in the mall to 
find more. Just walk around a lot and more groups of gangs will appear. 
I once turned around, and then turned around again and there were 15 
gang members just standing there.

-----------------------------------------------
16. Kill 25 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with a Python

Location - Between the North Point Mall and the beach, there is a row of 
buildings. Look for a short white and orange building with a lot of 
stairs in the front. Go around back of the building (by the beach) to 
find the rampage icon.

This is my favorite pistol - it can kill in one shot, and it is damn 
accurate. It fires six shots before you can reload. Walk around the 
streets near the North Point Mall. When you see a group of gang members, 
hit R1 to target, then circle to shoot. Keep doing this rapidly, and you 
can take down six gang members in less than 2 seconds. You have to be 
quick, and you can fire off a lot of rounds. The python has the longest 
range of the pistols, so take advantage of that.


-----------------------------------------------------------
17. Drive-by and Waste 30 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with an Uzi
 
Location - On the very north of the first island, even past the north 
point mall, the rampage is here. It is behind the building that is 
across from the north side of the parking lot near the North Point Mall. 
There is a ramp on the right side of the building. Just walk up the 
ramp, and the rampage is right behind the building.

Motorcycles work best for drive-by rampages, because you can shoot 
forward while driving. The easiest thing to do is drive down sidewalks 
while shooting forward, killing gang members. Be sure to watch out for 
anyone getting close, so they don't pull you off the bike. If you are 
bad at driving motorcycles, just use a fast sports car. But watch out 
for gang members coming up on the driver-side door to pull you out. They 
can shoot back, and often pop the tires, making it hard to drive. 30 
kills should be easy though. Congratulations, this was the last rampage 
on the first island!

----------------------------------------------
18. Runover and Kill 35 Gang Members in 2 Minutes

Location - This is the only rampage on Starfish Island. If you are 
heading west on the main road in Starfish Island, the rampage is in the 
yard of the house on the last right turn before the bridge. It is on the 
left side of the road you turn onto. You need to jump over the fence to 
get it, so park a car, jump on the car, and jump over the fence. The 
rampage is right by the driveway near the house. If you have trouble 
finding it, there is a picture of it at 
www.geocities.com/vicecityvisual/

If there is a car near the rampage, good, get in it, and drive over a 
ramp lined up against the wall to get out of the closed area. If there 
isn't a car, jump over the ramp, then steal a car. Drive down the 
sidewalks at a high speed and run over every pack of gang members you 
see. Doing this on the main street works well. Remember, you can't shoot 
them, you must run over them. You have to hit them at a high rate of 
speed so they die.

---------------------------------------------
19. Destroy 15 Vehicles in 2 Minutes with an RPG

Location - It is on a ship near the docks. To get there, start at the 
bridge leading west from Starfish Island. Once you get off the bridge, 
turn south and follow the road. Before some buildings split the road up, 
the boat should be there. It is blue with cargo boxes and has ramps 
leading up to it. Walk up one of the ramps to get on the boat. It is in 
that maze of cargo boxes. You shouldn't have much of a problem finding 
it.

The best spot to do this is standing on the ship, looking down at the 
road. Destroy the passing cars, and try to get a wanted level so some 
police cars show up that you can destroy. If you can't find enough 
vehicles in time, try parking a bunch of cars near the boat before you 
start the rampage. Or, for the cheaters, you could always do the blow up 
all cars cheat.

--------------------------------------------------
20. Kill 35 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with Grenades

Location - I am going to use the south bridge that connects the two main 
islands to tell you how to get to this rampage. This bridge is the one 
with two booths on each side of the road; it is nonstop from one island 
to the other. Take that bridge west, and when you get off, turn south. 
Take the first right turn you see, so you are heading west. On your left 
up ahead should be a pinkish-orange hotel building. Walk under that hole 
in the building, and go past the pool. Near the grass beyond the pool is 
the rampage icon. It is actually to the left of the pool, on the grass 
if you are just entering the hotel area.

If you walk a little further after picking up the rampage, there is a 
ledge. Don't walk off it, just stay above it and drop grenades below. 
You should take out plenty of gang members by doing this. Be warned - 
they can climb over the ledge and start attacking you. Just keep 
throwing the grenades near groups of gangs you see, and keep your 
distance.

--------------------------------------------------
21. Destroy 12 Vehicles in 2 Minutes with the RPG

Location - On top of the Escobar International Airport, the accessible 
one. You will need a helicopter to get to this one. Once you have it, 
land on the roof of the airport, and walk around. You should see the 
rampage on one of the hills towards the edge of the roof. If you have 
trouble finding it, there is a picture of it at 
www.geocities.com/vicecityvisual/

Alternate way - It has been brought to my attention that there is a 
Unique Jump that will allow you to get to the roof. As you are entering 
the airport, you should see a blue billboard with a surfer on it. It is 
three-dimensional. There is a ramp leading up the billboard, so get a 
car with a decent rate of speed, get some distance, and drive up the 
ramp. You should land on the roof. (Thanks to auntieuphoria for bringing 
this up.)

Stay on the roof; it is easier to hit cars from up here. There should be 
a lot of cars driving through the area below you, so fire away. If you 
have trouble finding cars, get a wanted level to attract police, or park 
a bunch of vehicles before you start the rampage, so you will have a lot 
to destroy. If you flew the helicopter here, blow that up! You don't 
need it for anything else.

Another strategy - Jump on the roof so more cars will appear. More cars 
will show up if you are on the ground then the roof, but you may expose 
yourself to attack from the police and gang members. (Thanks to tomkc07 
for mentioning this.)
------------------------------------------------------
22. Kill 25 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with the SPAS-12

Location - inside Escobar International Airport, behind a wall towards 
the back. It is on the first floor, between a wall and some windows. If 
you don't know where Escobar International Airport is, look on the map 
that came with your game.

The only thing difficult about this is that you cannot run with the 
shotgun in your hands. This is automatic, so just target and let off a 
few shots, and you should take down anyone in the area of your shots. 
The easiest thing to do is target, shoot, and then target again quickly. 
If you can't find any gang members to kill, try walking up the 
escalators and back down again to make some new gang members appear.

-----------------------------------------------------
23. Destroy 15 Vehicles in 2 Minutes with the Minigun

Location - This is outside of Baxter Air Force Base, behind Escobar 
International Airport. Just follow those roads that are somewhat 
underground, and you should end up near the air force base. Before you 
get near the walls surrounding the base, the rampage is on the grass 
next to it, near some trees and bushes. If you have trouble finding it, 
there is a picture of it at www.geocities.com/vicecityvisual/

The Minigun is very powerful due to its high rate of fire. You can 
destroy a car in less than a second if you are firing directly at it. 
Just shoot at passing traffic, get a wanted level to attract police 
cars, just destroy any vehicle you see. If it comes to this, use the 
blow up all cars cheat to gain some kills, if you are the cheating type 
of person.

Alternate way - There is a tank inside the military base if you have 
unlocked it. You can use that to destroy the vehicles, also. (submitted 
by an anonymous user)

--------------------------------------------------
24. Kill 20 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with a Ruger

Location - Take the bridge heading west from Starfish Island. Once off 
the bridge, turn south down the road. Take the first right turn you see, 
and follow that road west until it ends. When it ends, there should be a 
building with a red awning on it, and stairs that lead up to the top. Go 
up the stairs, and the rampage icon is on the roof of the building.

The Ruger is just like the M4, it is an assault rifle, and you can make 
your aim better by crouching. Just crouch on the roof where you found 
the rampage, and pick people off on the streets below. They can't reach 
you from the roof, so try not to fall. If you feel that you aren't 
getting enough kills, just jump down and start shooting all the gang 
members below you. They seem to spawn more often when you are walking on 
the street. 

-------------------------------------------------------------
25. Gun Down 20 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with a Sniper Rifle

Location - You need a helicopter to get this one. Once you get it, fly 
to the bridge connecting Starfish Island to the large West Island. 
Directly across the street from the bridge is the building with the 
rampage on the roof. Look at the roofs; it should be easy to spot the 
purple icon. Land the helicopter on the roof and get it. If you have 
trouble finding it, there is a picture of it at 
www.geocities.com/vicecityvisual/

This is the crappy sniper rifle. You have to reload after every shot, 
unlike the PSG-1. Stay on the roof, and aim at the gang members below 
you. There are a lot of groups on the sidewalk, but once you kill a few, 
the rest of the group starts running in fear. If you run out of gang 
members to kill, zoom out then zoom in again and you should see some 
more.

---------------------------------------------------
26. Kill 10 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with a Katana

Location - Just a few buildings away from the last rampage is the next 
one. If you know where the El Corrupto Banko Grande is, it is right 
behind that bank, just go down an alley and you should see it near a 
loading bay. It is in a large open area, so if you still have your 
helicopter, just fly a bit north and you should see a large open area 
behind the next few buildings. It is in that area.

The Katana is pretty simple to use. Just walk up to a pack of gang 
members, and rapidly tap circle. He will make random slashes and kicks 
at them. It takes a few slashes to kill a gang member. The key is to 
wait for them to fall down, then kick them and stab them while they are 
on the ground. You should only have to do this to a few groups to get 
ten kills.

------------------------------------------------------
27. Kill 25 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with the Shotgun

Location - Right in the center of Little Havana is a large area of pink 
houses. They are in a rectangle, and in the inside of the rectangle of 
houses are 3 basketball courts. If you have trouble finding it, just 
look from a helicopter over Little Havana. It is easy to spot. In the 
basketball courts is the rampage.

Most of the time, the shotgun doesn't kill in one shot. You will need to 
shoot your target a few times to make sure he is dead. You will know 
when you see your kill counter change. To get one shot kills with the 
shotgun, just walk up really close to your target and shoot. That should 
kill him instantly.

------------------------------------------------------
28. Kill 30 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with the Tec-9

Location - In Little Haiti, right around the area of the Print Shop, is 
a long wooden fence. There is also a billboard that says "Life is a 
Bitch". Behind that fence is a long yard behind those little houses. At 
the north end of the yard, behind a house, is the rampage icon.

The Tec-9 is a really crappy submachine gun. It is inaccurate, and the 
rate of fire is terrible. Your best bet is getting really close to your 
target, and then opening fire. It takes a lot of shots to bring someone 
down with this gun.

-------------------------------------------------------
29. Kill 35 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with a SPAS-12

Location - Also in Little Haiti, take the road that is west of the Print 
Works, and take it north. Right as it curves, you should see a billboard 
that says, "Welcome to hell". Before that billboard, there is an alley 
that leads out to the ocean, and some docks. Follow that, and behind 
some buildings at the end of the alley is the rampage icon. If you have 
trouble finding it, there is a picture of it at 
www.geocities.com/vicecityvisual/

The SPAS-12 makes any rampage easy. Simply find a pack of gang members, 
aim, fire. It should take down the whole pack in one or two shots. 
Repeat for every pack of gang members you see.

------------------------------------------------------
30. Kill 30 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with the M60

Location - Take the west bridge heading from Starfish Island. Once you 
get off, head north up that road with all the palm trees. Stay on it for 
a while, until you see a building with a large pool in front, with a 
sign that says Moist Palms Hotel. Turn in the road by the hotel and head 
towards the parking lot. Once you get in the parking lot, turn right 
real quick, and right again, to find the rampage right next to the 
hotel. 

The M60 is a very powerful weapon, it kills in one shot, it is 
automatic, and fairly accurate. How much better can heavy weaponry get? 
Just crouch down, and aim at a pack of gang members. Pick them off one 
by one. You can mow down whole pack of members in less than 3 seconds 
with this thing.

---------------------------------------------------------------
31. Drive-by and Waste 35 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with an Uzi

Location - Get to the Well Stacked Pizza shop in Downtown. It can be 
found on your map that came with the game. To the left of the Well 
Stacked Pizza place is an alley. Follow it, and take a left at the end 
of the alley. The rampage is right there, out in the open behind some 
buildings.

Motorcycles work best for drive-by rampages, because you can shoot 
forward while driving. The easiest thing to do is drive down sidewalks 
while shooting forward, killing gang members. Be sure to watch out for 
anyone getting close, so they don't pull you off the bike. If you are 
bad at driving motorcycles, just use a fast sports car. But watch out 
for gang members coming up on the driver-side door to pull you out. They 
can shoot back, and often pop the tires, making it hard to drive. 30 
kills should be easy though.

-----------------------------------------------------
32. Kill 25 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with a Python

Location - Across from the Ammunation in Downtown is a large set of 
steps leading up the side of a building. This is also a unique jump. On 
the top of the steps is the rampage icon. I recommend staying up there 
for a good vantage point when shooting the gang members. If you have 
trouble finding it, there is a picture of it at 
www.geocities.com/vicecityvisual/

This pistol is fast, powerful, and it is accurate. Find a lot of gang 
members, and then quickly hold R1 and circle, release R1 and quickly hit 
it again and fire, and keep doing this. You will take down 25 members in 
no time if you fire this fast.


--------------------------------------------------------
33. Kill 40 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with Molotov Cocktails

Location - Take the bridge heading west from Prawn Island. As soon as 
you get off the bridge, start looking to your right. When you see a 
building with stairs leading up to a door, that is the right place. Walk 
up the stairs, and the rampage icon is right there. If you have trouble 
finding it, there is a picture of it at 
www.geocities.com/vicecityvisual/

Molotov Cocktail rampages are tricky, because you can easily set 
yourself on fire. The best thing to do for this rampage is to keep your 
distance. Throw the molotovs at packs of gangs, and throw it further by 
holding circle down longer. If the gang members come after you, run away 
so you have enough distance to throw a molotov at them. If it looks like 
you threw it too close, quickly hit square and jump away before it 
explodes.

----------------------------------------------------
34. Kill 30 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with a Minigun

Location - Just a bit further down from that open area where you found 
the last rampage, the next one is there. It is in front of a doorway 
where that weird looking sculpture is. Get a vehicle near this one so 
you don't waste any time walking to where there are people. If you have 
trouble finding it, there is a picture of it at 
www.geocities.com/vicecityvisual/

Drive to where there are people, get out of your car, and spray them 
down with minigun bullets. As long as you don't let any gang member get 
close enough to throw a punch at you, you'll do fine. Just spin around 
and shoot, that is what I did.

--------------------------------------------------
35. Kill 30 Gang Members in 2 Minutes with a Flamethrower

Right next to the Hyman Memorial Stadium are two helipads (to the north 
of the stadium). Before you get on the helipads, the rampage is located 
next to the steps leading to the walkway.

Keep your distance when shooting flames at the gang members. Go for the 
large packs of members, and run away if they come running at you while 
they are on fire. This flamethrower has much better distance then the 
one in GTA III. Take advantage of that.

Congratulations, you've completed all the rampages!

=====================================================================
IV. Tips for Completing Rampages

- Gangs usually appear in groups. Always go for the groups of gang 
members, to rack up more kills. 

- If you have trouble finding gang members, try walking around a bit and 
then looking back. Chances are that new ones have appeared.

- For Rampages involving Destroying Vehicles, if you have trouble with 
these, steal a bunch of cars and park them near the rampage right before 
you start, so you can get a lot more kills

- Going into a rampage with low health is a bad idea. Always make sure 
you have 100 health and armor, or 150 health and armor if you have 
unlocked it.

- If you cannot get past the "destroy vehicle" rampages, use the blow up 
all cars cheat a few times: R2, L2, R1, L1, L2, R2, Square, Triangle, 
Circle, Triangle, L2, L1. 

USER TIPS (Tips submitted by readers)

- For rampages that involve destroying vehicles, you don't need to use 
the given weapon to destroy the cars. You can use the tank, also.

- If you get to Firefighter Mission Level 12, you will become fireproof, 
making it easier to complete rampages involving Molotov cocktails and 
flamethrowers. (submitted by The Kosmic Fool)

- As you may recall, in GTA3, you could use a Rhino tank to complete any 
rampage, except for the ones requiring headshots. Firing the cannon 
counted towards the rampage, for no apparent reason. Well, the good 
news is this still exists: The Rhino can be used to complete any 
rampage, as Vice City has no "headshot" rampages. Just fire the cannon 
to rack up heavy kills. With VC's new engine, this is even easier as 
gangs will hang out in small clusters. One cannon shot can easily kill 
4-7 youths at a time. I did try this on several different rampages, and 
it worked every time. The only kind I didn't try was "run over gang 
members," but I suspect it will work there as well. What's better than 
that? The Hunter (a.k.a. the army helicopter) can also be used on 
rampages! Fire the minigun or shoot missles; anything you kill/blow up 
counts! (Huge thanks to Feitclub for submitting this)

- For any of the weapons that you have to target with, instead of tapping 
the R1 button you can hold down the R1 button and simultaneously tap the 
L2 or R2 buttons to switch targets to either direction.  This will also 
help you target just the gang members and complete rampages more 
quickly. (Thanks to lochbob for sending this tip)

V. RAMPAGE GLITCHES

----------------------------------------------------
Infinite Ammo

There is a way to get infinite ammo by doing rampages. First, have a 
weapon selected that you want the unlimited ammo for, I.E. the python. 
Keep it selected right before you pick up a rampage icon. After a few 
rampages, ammo will be added to the python when you complete the 
rampage. Once you get over 9,999 shots, the counter will disappear, and 
you will have unlimited ammo. You lose the infinite ammo for the gun if 
you die or are arrested. 
 
NOTE - It as been confirmed that you do not get infinite ammo, but the 
ammo counter disappears. 

----------------------------------------------------
Disappearing Rampage

For rampage #10 on this FAQ, if you do not complete it the first time, 
it will disappear, and you will not be able to do it again. I am 
currently looking into this to see if this rampage has a second 
location, or it never re-appears. (Credits to chrisc719)

----------------------------------------------------
Disappearing Weapons

When you start a rampage, for example, a rampage involving an M4, if you 
don't have the M4 selected in your inventory before you start the 
rampage, you will lose the M4 when the rampage ends. This doesn't 
matter, obviously, if you don't already have the M4. But if you don't 
want to lose your weapon, make sure you have it selected before you do 
the rampage. This goes for all weapons, not just the M4. (Credits to
