Vice City is a dangerous place; protagonist Tommy Vercetti must face everything from street thugs to heavily-armed drug cartels to machine-gun-wielding soldiers. If you want to survive this urban warzone, you'll need as much health and armor as you can get. Two of the game's many side missions allow you to increase these important statistics.
Getting 150 Health
To boost your maximum health, you'll need to complete several levels of the Pizza Boy side mission. Find any Well Stacked Pizza location and climb into a parked delivery vehicle. You'll be asked to deliver pizzas to a series of customers, with the number of customers increasing with each level. The 10th level requires you to deliver pizzas to six customers, return to the shop, get four more pizzas and deliver them. Once you've done this, you'll receive a $5,000 reward and your maximum health will increase to 150.
Getting 150 Armor
To get 150 armor, you must complete 12 levels of the Vigilante side mission. You can start this mission any time you are in a law enforcement vehicle; it requires you to hunt down and kill a series of criminals. Even though you're fighting crime, the police frown on you taking the law into your own hands, so completing 12 levels is going to require some evasive driving and heavy firepower. Once you're done, you'll be rewarded with an increase of your maximum armor to 150.
