Overview and History
Apartment 3C is an accessible apartment in Ocean Beach, Vice City. Inside the bathroom of the apartment, the bathtub is splattered with blood. There is also a chainsaw pickup next to it. The player can also find bags of cocaine scattered around the two rooms. This is a clear homage to the film Scarface, specifically the scene where Tony Montana's friend Angel Fernandez is killed with a chainsaw in a bathtub.
Apartment 3C is an easter egg added by Rockstar Games, as a reference to the 1983 film Scarface, as the film takes place in Florida, and has many Mafia inspirations. The apartment plays no role in the storyline whatsoever, but it is rumored that the apartment was going to be featured in a beta mission. Players also said that in the beta you could see a cutscene similar to the one in Scarface of the people in the apartment getting murdered with a chainsaw, resulting in the blood getting splattered on the wall. Some even say you can still see the cutscene in the final version, but there's no actual evidence of this happening.
One of the blood stains inside the bathtub is the imprint of bloody hands. This is actually a reference to an easter egg in GTA III, in which the same blood texture can be seen inside a Bloody Cell.
