Max injured Vinnie and then pursued him along the rooftops and railways of New York. Max ultimately got the information he needed from Vinnie, the location of Jack Lupino and left him bleeding out in an alley.

    Max Payne 2

    Vinnie returns in Max Payne 2, now an underboss in the Punchinello crime family and leading a gang war with Vladimir Lem's Russian mafia. Max initially suspects Vinnie of being behind the Cleaner murders. Max encounters Vinnie attacking Vodka Vladimir Lem's club and the renovated Ragnarock. Vinnie was attempting to finish off the Russian mob boss Vladimir Lem but Max stopped him. Later after Lem is revealed as the true mastermind behind the Cleaner murders Vinnie is caught in a trap by Lem. He is trapped in a Captain Baseball bat boy costume rigged to explode.
