Racing tips

1.When doing races from the car show place drive to the start line but dont drive your car into the pink marker.

Get out of your car put in the armor cheat:

And the health cheat:

And the weapon cheat:

Then stand in the middle of the three cars get out your rocket launcher aim at the floor and fire. this will take off most of your armor but it should blow up if not set on fire all three cars and then you can drive as slow or fast as you want around the track. However dont use this tip whilst racing hilary as if you kill him then the mission ends.

2. To beat hilary simply enter the cars can fly cheat:
(RIGHT, R2, O, R1, L2, Down, L1, R1)

And watch hilary float away as he doesnt know the cheat is active he will drive as fast as usual but you must drive slowly or else you'll miss the checkpoints dont pull the left analog stick back because this will make you fly. if you do hold the left analog stick forward to return to earth. Happy driving!

Game Hints

Gas Bombs

On Vice Point, the police station right across from Starfish Island connecting bridge, is the police station. In the back of the police station are some gas bombs. This is very helpful when you are surronded by gangs. When you fire the gas bombs, instantly everyone around you runs away. The only downside of this weapon, is that it effects your health very quickly. You get 4 at a time.

Chainsaw massacre

1. When you get the chainsaw jump on top of a car (or even better an ambulance) and when the drivers are in the car and you are holding the chainsaw press tap Circle and see what happens.

2. While running (just pressing forward) while holding the chainsaw hold Circle and you should be running with the chainsaw strait forward and it is constantly on (unless you let go of Circle). You can strip cars of their bonets and doors ect. It is also a good way of killing gangs.

memory gage, Nov 23, 2006


1. When you have Diaz's mansion after you kill him, outside of the room where you save the game (inside the mansion) their are some pictures of Diaz on the wall and you have done graffiti on them. There is also another one with a knife slash through it and devil horns drawn on it.

2. When you claim Diaz's mansion for your own there is loads of gangsters around (there Diaz's old one's which are now your's) they say things like 'Hey its MR V' and other things to do with Tommy. But this is the funny thing, Diaz must have been preety weak because when you hit his men they play dead So I think they did this to Diaz aslwell to make the messed up midget think he was hard.

sarah11234, Nov 23, 2006

Sexy Candy Suxxx

1. When you have completed the Dildo Dodo mission for the film studio (the one where you have to fly a plane and drop magazines out of it), look at the floor of the street. The magazines are there, look at them through the sniper for a better view.

2. When you have completed the film studio missions, in your mansion (Diaz's old one) there is a picture/poster of her where you save the game in the mansion and on the desk there are the pictures you took in 'Marthes mugshot'

3. After you have comleted the 'G-spotlight' mission, at night the spotlight shows you some things with Suxxx under it.

Things to do with bikes

1. Go to a change close sign and pull up to it on a bike so it is on the righthand side. Then get off the bike, then back on. When you get back on, the screen will fade and it will reappear and you are not on the bike, you are stuck to the bike you cannot fall off it. So you can do some ultimate jumps. Tommy will run with the bike as well. To get out of this simply press Triangle.

2. To take the bike in places like the Malibu club and you mansion speed up to the doors and press Triangle to bail at the last second, then go inside the club/mansion. Your bike should be inside

Game Easter Eggs

Grand Theft Auto 3

There is an airplane with a banner on the back that flies around Vice City. When you fly a helicopter or a plane around it, or zoom in on it with a sniper rifle, you can see that it is an exact duplicate of the full-winged Dodo from Grand Theft Auto 3.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

On the K-Chat radio station, when BJ Smith is the special guest, listen to the people that call the station to talk to him. There is one man that calls asking BJ how he played against the "SA's". The SA's refer to the football team in San Andreas.

asim786, Mar 9, 2008

The Getaway

On the assassination mission Autocide, the two people in the truck are named Marcus Hammond and Franco Carter. The main characters of The Getaway are Frank Carter and Mark Hammond.

acey_2, Mar 9, 2008

The Terminator

Look closely at the "Exploder" billboard above the 24/7 store in Little Havana to see a scene from The Terminator, in which the Terminator robot descends from an explosion.

Cameron, Mar 9, 2008

San Andreas

Listen to the VCHAT radio station and you will hear a football player call in and say "Hey, I'm a first time calla". They will start talking about different football conversations. Listen for about one minute and you will hear the caller say something similar to "Well, we were beaten by San Andreas". In the original Grand Theft Auto, the cities were Liberty City, Vice City, and San Andreas. This is a hint towards the location or title of the fifth game in the series.

Game Glitches

Wierd pay and spray

First you get a car and drive it into the pay and spray. But heres the catch go and stop BEFORE YOU HAVE ENTERED THE PAY AND SPRAY. some cars you see the rear end of the car being crushed. others you see the back lights sticking out. P.S. also works with garages.

007dm, Aug 28, 2007

Fall from water to sky

Enable the "Dodo flying" and "Float on water" codes. Go into the water and drive around. Gain speed and fly into the air. Try to flip your vehicle upside down in the water. If done correctly, the car will sink and a clicking sound will start. You and the vehicle will drop out of the sky and land somewhere random in Vice City. Note: You may need to try this a few times with different cars. If it does not work immediately, you will die.

Miro, Mar 9, 2008

Travel underwater

In the PlayStation2 version, get a Sabre Turbo, and enable the "Floating car" and "Dodo car (flying)" codes. Get into the ocean and gain some speed. Fly straight up, then immediately straight down so the nose of your car hits the water in a vertical position. You must hold X the entire time until you are underwater. You can hold Square underwater to tread water. You will travel straight down underwater for approximately thirteen seconds. You will then emerge with one wanted level or more and your vehicle damaged, on a nearby location on land.

pcw, Mar 9, 2008

Walk inside a bridge

Go to the film studio on Prawn Island and take the Skimmer (seaplane). Go beneath the bridge to the right and stop under the lowest part of it. Get out of the plane and you will be inside the bridge. Sometimes you can even walk around, but will fall through the ground and end up back on the streets.

jcb0y, Mar 9, 2008

Invisible hostage

Get a hostage in your car. If you get out, run around to the passenger's side and throw him or her out. He will just sit there. When you get in the car, you will hear screams as though you have a hostage. As you pull away the screams will fade. The person will not move from where they are unless you lose the car.
