    One of GTAs illustrious items are the hidden packages. In GTA: Vice City Stories, the hidden packages are red balloons, which you have to manually shoot down (R1 + DOWN). A total of 99 of these balloons are broadcast in places around the city. Some are easy to find, whereas others are not. Every one you pop is worth some cash, and for every 10 you get a powerup - often a weapon - will appear outside each of your safehouses. The powerups become better as you get nearer to the 99 mark. Some Red Balloons are too far away for your average gun to burst, so you will have to use a sniper rifle. You'll know instantly once you've burst a balloon, by the confirmation message "x/99 Red Balloons Burst!". "So, why 'Red Balloons'?", I hear you ask. Well it's a reference to the '80s song "99 Red Luftballons/ "99 Red Balloons", by German band Nena, which played on Wave 103, in GTA: Vice City.

    It is has never been fully clear what these hidden packages actually are, but certain indications lead us to believe they are drug packages. It may be advisable for new GTA players to burst these balloons before taking on missions, as the power-ups you are rewarded with can be very handy. If you wish to complete the game 100%, then all 99 balloons must be burst. Just don't forget to save your game burstin' a few!

        Use this map to find 'em all:

Tips:

 

  • A new feature for not losing track on what extras you have picked up and passed and which ones you haven't, has been introduced to the game. By holding down X in the pause menu map, you can choose to display exact locations on the map of the red balloons, rampages or unique stunt jumps you have found and burst/passed with are represented by icons.

 

  • The balloons will are stuck/hidden in places where you would expect a balloon to get stuck, i.e. under a building ledge. Another common place is in the leaves of palm trees.

 

  • If you can't burst a certain balloon, try again with a longer range weapon. Lots of red balloons need to be popped with sniper rifles.

 

  • Bare in mind that some balloons will be above you, some on your level and some underneath you, such as beneath a bridge.
