Distribution is a side-mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City that the player can do on their own time. The mission can be activated by entering the parked Mr. Whoopee van at the Cherry Popper Ice Cream Factory.


Upon entering the van, the player is required to drive around Vice City and sell drugs, disguised as ice cream, to customers that they encounter. To complete the mission, the player must do a total of 50 deals. Once the mission is complete, the ice cream factory will start generating up to $3,000 that the player can collect.

The player can exit the mission by simply exiting the van. However, doing so will fail the mission and the player will have to do their deals all over again.


The reward for completing Distribution is earned as the player does drug deals. Completing the side-mission is required for 100% Completion in GTA Vice City.


  • Its best to sell in non-gang related areas as gangs, except the Vercetti Gang, will attack you if they see you doing drug deals in their territory.
  • The player will gain a one-star wanted level for every 4 deals that the player makes.
  • This is the only mission in the game that the player can deal drugs.
