GTA Myths Wiki

The Docks Worker, or BMODK, as he is known in the game files, is a pedestrian in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.


The Docks Worker is an employee who works at the docks, likely working for construction or loading purposes.

The Docks Worker became known in the myth hunting community due to his presence at the docks and more specifically, Phil's Depot. Players believed that the Docks Worker was the key to Vic Vance's Ghost and thus keeping a track of his activity can lead to the truth. The uproar began when players found out a quote associated with the worker:

Careful, docks is a dangerous place!

–Docks Worker

This further led players to believe that the worker might be hinting towards the ghost and possibly warning the player of potential paranormal danger, but skeptics dropped a bombshell on the myth when they found the succeeding quote:

Yo, you wanna drown, man?

–Docks Worker

This unveiled the fact that the Docks Worker was actually warning the players from drowning. Several demonstrations support this theory. If the player causes chaos at the docks, preferably Phil's Depot, pedestrians will run and fall into the sea, ultimately drowning themselves. This is caused by a glitch, as NPC's tend to run in a certain direction when scared, regardless of obstacles ahead.

Bizarre theories discuss that the Docks Worker was hired by the Vice City Port Authority during the time when the Little Haiti branch was operative. A group of theorists suggests that if this may be the case, then the Docks Worker could be of Haitian origin, when internal file searches took place, it was disclosed that the Haitian worker appears more in the night time and this has further led to an even bizarre theory, suggesting that the worker may have links within the Counterfeiting Syndicate or the Vice City Triads. However, these theories are formulated on the basis of speculation and technically have no authentic base in the game.
