Rub Out is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City which the protagonist Tommy Vercetti does independently in Starfish Island, Vice City.



After Lance Vance attempted to kill Ricardo Diaz, Tommy and Lance need to kill him before he can attack them. They meet on the bridge to Starfish Island, with Lance providing Tommy with an M4 Carbine. They enter Diaz's Mansion and manage to shoot their way through the mansions gardens. They enter the mansion through the back door, next to an indoor pool, and shoot their way through the hallways. They eventually reach the main hall where Diaz is waiting, having spotted them entering his property through CCTV.

Diaz has eight guards as protection but they, along with Diaz himself, are killed. Diaz manages to crawl to the top of the stairs and claims to have trusted Tommy, before Tommy and Lance kill him.

Tommy Vercetti: DIAZ?! I've come to take over your business!

Ricardo Diaz: TOMMY! You betrayed me, you idiot! I'm gonna kill you real soon!

Lance Vance: Eat this, you murdering bastards!

(Tommy and Lance shoot past Diaz's guards and shoot Diaz in his office)

Ricardo Diaz: You stupid beautiful house...look what you've done to it!

Lance Vance: This is for my brother!

(Lance kicks Diaz onto his chest and then aims his gun at him, so does Tommy.)

Ricardo Diaz: I trusted you, Tommy. I woulda had you made...

(Tommy looks at Lance doubtfully but then aims his gun at Diaz yet again.)

Lance Vance: Say goodnight, Mr. Diaz!

(Tommy and Lance shoot Diaz in the face.)
