GTA Vice City Definitive Edition - City Sleuth Trophy Guide (All 100 Hidden Packages Location)

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City – The Definitive Edition

With the release of Grand Theft Auto (GTA) Vice City – The Definitive Edition, we’ve also got trophies on PlayStation 4 and Xbox for this classic GTA game. I think I speak for many when I say this game has been a significant part of many people’s childhood.

With that in mind, wanting to attain 100% completion in this game is pretty understandable. I remember being a teenager back in the 2000s and playing GTA – Vice City all day long during the summer breaks, it still holds a place in my heart and I am so glad we can finally play this masterpiece once more on newer consoles.

The “City Sleuth” trophy is a gold ultra rare achievement you can obtain in the game by finding all 100 hidden packages. You probably already have some of these already collected by randomly stumbling into them.




Each package rewards you with $100 when you find it. They look like a green Māori Tiki statue and you can walk into it to pick them up.

GTA Vice City Pro Tip

We recommend you start finding these packages as soon as you are able to unlock Starfish Island and the Little Havana / Little Haiti / Downtown parts of the map by completing some of the early story missions because the weapons and choppers you unlock can prove very beneficial during the harder missions later on.

Aside from this, we also recommend completing the Rampage missions as early on as you can for the same reason.




Remember that unlike modern games on PlayStation and Xbox, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City – The Definitive Edition requires a lot of manual saving to avoid losing your data, so be sure to visit your safe houses often.
