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:
R1, R2, L1, X, LEFT, DOWN, RIGHT, UP, LEFT, DOWN, RIGHT, UP

And the health cheat:
R1,R2,L1,O,LEFT,DOWN,RIGHT,UP,LEFT,DOWN,RIGHT,UP

And the weapon cheat:
R1, R2, L1, R2, LEFT, DOWN, RIGHT, UP, LEFT, DOWN, DOWN, LEFT

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!

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.

branmann, Nov 23, 2006

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

Diaz

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.

Jinxgirl001, Nov 23, 2006

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

icedrakonpc, Nov 23, 2006

Hunter (apache helicopter)

Lots of ppl think u can enter the base without all 100 packages but thats not true, u must have all 100 packages before going into Baxter air base to get the apache,there are 2 ways of going into the base without getting shot.

#1 U get the police uniform at the police station that u can enter(near construction site) and get a helicopter, from there u go to the end of the military base and take the apache.

#2 (if u dont want to get a helicopter),get the uniform,then drive all th way to the base into the gate(breaking it) then turn left to some stairs that lead to the roof of a building, then u go to the other side of the building to a small walkway on the side of the main building,go through the walkway and down some more stairs, in the area that u r in there are fences and a tower,go up the tower then jump of the side of the tower to go in the "training area", go to the end of the training area and u should find an opening in the fence, go through it and u should be in the end of the base, from there u walk left a little and u should find the apache(hunter)
*****BUT REMEMBER,u have to have all 100 packages and the police uniform,if u cant find the police uniform u can unlock by finishing the mission Cop Land

redkiller652, Nov 23, 2006

Backflip on a wall

Ride a bike, (preferably a PCJ 600) straight at a wall, half way there start to pull the wheelie, (pull the left analog back / press down on the d-pad) and when you hit the wall you should drive half way up it and backflip turn and land! (it might give you a insane stunt bonus!)

NeedForSpeed, Nov 23, 2006

Easy money

Get a rocket launcher, (R1, R2,L1, R2, left, down, right, up, left, down, down, left) get 3 wanted level stars. When the helicopter comes allong shoot it down with your rocket launcher it should blow up and you should get loads of money! (when shooting down the heli make sure you can shoot it but the police on the ground can't shoot you. e.g. on top of a foof)

Have Sexual Intercourse

Get into a car with a roof and dont smash it! Drive around looking for a woman with a red top and black shorts or a woman in a black bikini. Drive right at the side of then neatly and beep. They should stand looking at you for a bit. When they've done that. Drive a bit forward. If she walks up to you again she likes you. Wait and she'll get in. Drive off quickly without smahing your car else she'll get out. Drive somwhere private (An alley, in some trees or the beach - it works best) and the car will start shaking. If you look at your health its slowly rising to 125. When it reaches 125 shell get out. Then kill her and you'll get your money back. Note: If you do it again your health will stay 125 it wont double or go up to 150. Enjoy it!

BlackSteel, Nov 23, 2006

To make a rhino tank to fly simply enter the flying car cheat(right, r2, circle, r1, l2, down,l1, r1)turn its rocket firer around by twiddling the r3 (right analog stick) button then fire your rocket firer for ages and accelerate while doing and while doing hold up button you should take off really high whilst flying keep pressing circle and you should stay in air for about 30 seconds.

bbop93, Nov 23, 2006

The Driver

On The Driver mission where you race Phil's buddy try to get in front of him and when you pass the Police Dpartment use the cheat (R1, R1, Circle, R2, Up, Down, Up, Down, Up, Down) then when a cop comes it should hit Phil's buddy.This may take a couple of times. If you do this right Phil's buddy should hit the cop car in front. When you pass the Pizza store go where that cop badge is and hit that checkpiont. It makes you go fast ahead.

gageshislen, Nov 23, 2006

Insane cars

When typing in the "Big Wheels" cheat(R1, X, Triangle, Right, R2, square, up, down, square)it doesnt accept it so load a saved game or start a new game and type the code again. Do this 5 or 6 times and the wheels shold be the size of monster trucks but only on the: cheetah, phoenix and infernus. but that doesnt mean that the code does not affect the other cars.after completing the proccess find a comet or a banshee and you should notice it is hard to control but if any car(apart from comet banshee and tank)hits your comet or banshee will go flying even a bus. Its great fun to get police away from you and the comet or banshee will become virtually indestructable but tanks blow them up.

cbrend, Nov 23, 2006

Easy way of getting to mainland without

Enter Cars can drive on water(right, R2, Circle, R1, L2, Square, R1, R2). Then get any car, bus, tank etc. except bikes or scooters drive into water and head for the docks, drive up ramp which is at the southernest part of the docks and turn right of the top of the ramp and go through gap in fence.

note:if you get busted or wasted youare returned to ocean beach or vice point.

Get Camera after Martha Mug Shot

After you complete Martha's Mug Shot, get to 100% completion. I reccomend using ultimate cheat disc. Look for a male tourist w/ camersa inside a vehicle. Shhot him in the head. The camera icon will not appear above him, but press l1 when over him. U should save automatically. If u don't want to go through this again, use ult. cheat disc and select never lose weapons & unlimited ammo.

VietNam2Vinh, Nov 23, 2006

Hunter

Get the cop outfit from the police station by the malibu. Go to the military base north of the airport. The base looks like a fort. drive thru the front door, get out of the car, and go left. To the left past the watchtower, run up the stairs onto the roof. Run to the side of the roof where the bigger part of the building is, and find the little walking space that goes to the front of the bigger part of the building. Run down and into the training area, and to the east. Then go north and try and find a hole in the fence. If you can make it into the fenced in area at the back of the base the Hunter will be parked there, and you can take it without even getting any packages, nevermind all 100. It's a lot easier if you get the cop outfit and fly a helicopter in to the back. Oh, yeah, if you are not wearing a cop outfit, fire a gun, or bump into one of the soldiers you will be shot to death! :-)

raxsumins, Nov 23, 2006

More Vehicles In Any Of Your Garages!

If you want more cars (or bikes) Then read this!! Drive up to the garage and get out of your car leaving the door wide open and let your garage door open,then quickly get into your car and speed right in then your garage door should keep slamming off the top of the wall unless you leave the car!
If you crash into any of your other cars just walk out of your garage and let your door close fully and then walk back in and all the cars that were in that garage should fully recovered this is better than going to the pay and spray and wasting your money!!!!

shimmer, Nov 23, 2006

Cocorde

Hold l1 and press cross cross cross circle triangle r1 r1 r1 circle cross then let go of l1 and kill a prostitute with a flamethrower then get a red banshee and puncture the tires with a sniper and you must walk all the way to vercetti mansion but you must WALK then instead of a helicopter if you have one that is there will be a concorde that is faster than any other type of transportation.

Roguesquad6, Nov 23, 2006

Get back to yourself

You know when you use a cheat to change into someone else, and you just can't turn back to you. I have a simple soulution. Get busted. You'll turn back to yourself.

007dm, Aug 28, 2007

Get a mac or oozie

Go into the north point mall. Go to the ammunation shop. Make sure you have some kind of weapon. Jump over the counter and kill the clerk. You will be able to pick up his weapon (the mac or oozie) and possibly even some cash.

ridgwayd41302, Jan 2, 2008

Patriot

If you like big vehicles head over to Phils place and go left. There'll be a hanger like area. Go in and take whatever is in there. The cool thing is you won't get caught.

ridgwayd41302, Feb 5, 2008

Garages: and lots of 'em

If you find the condos downtown, head to the back so you can buy them. As soon as you do you can hide a lot of vehicles. It's a good place to hide all of the bikes and Patriots (found in Phil's place) and other vehicles you like.

ridgwayd41302, Feb 5, 2008

Easy weapons

Free weapons are hidden all over the city. The flamethrower and rocket launcher, are two especially powerful weapons. They can be found near the boat yard and car showroom. These all respawn within a few game hours. Collect all the desired weapons, then save at a nearby hideout. The game will advance six hours and all your hidden weapons will have respawned. Do this three to five times, and all your company assets will be close to full, and you can make the rounds to get paid.

mich0902, Mar 9, 2008

Cheaper weapons

Use the following trick to get expensive weapons for cheap prices. Go to the first Ammu-Nation in Ocean Beach (with the cheapest prices for weapons) and buy all the machine gun and shotgun ammunition desired. Afterwards, go to the Ammu-Nation in Downtown and buy the weapons in the same category (the machine gun and shotgun). Only purchase the guns one time each. When you do that, all the ammunition you have with your cheap shotgun and machine gun should be converted to the newer and most expensive guns. This is very helpful in the beginning when your income is not too high. However, this trick does not work with all the weapons.

PaughDayday, Mar 9, 2008

Extra ammunition

If you do a rampage, the type of weapon for it will be taken from you. However, the weapon that you had prior to starting the rampage will double in ammunition. For example, if you do a shotgun rampage and have an Uzi equipped, you will lose all your shotgun ammunition, but have double the Uzi ammo. Note: You do not have to pass the rampage to get the ammunition.

keyla, Mar 9, 2008

Unlimited ammunition

Go to any Ammu-Nation store and choose a gun. Keep buying it until you get close to 9999 rounds. The next time you buy it, the ammunition count for that gun will disappear and you will have an unlimited amount.

Rukia, Mar 9, 2008

Taking out police boats

In the PlayStation2 version, if you are in a boat in the ocean and the police are chasing you, press Triangle and you will not be driving it anymore. The police will stop chasing you and it seems that they do not even notice you are still on the boat. Take out the rocket launcher and blow up the police boats. Start driving again and repeat as needed. You can also hop onto the police boat if it is close to you. However, you must quickly shoot the cop, because he will attack you.

Wacekkk, Mar 9, 2008

Escape from police

If you are being chased by the police and are near streets with alleys, drive near the alleys. Jump out the car at the correct moment and fall into the alley. The police will drive past, giving you some time to run. You can also get out of a heavy car and leave it to block an alley. This is useful if you have a high wanted level.

tcfc-hics, Mar 9, 2008

Ride on hoods

An easy way to snipe the police and people on the sidewalk is to jump on the hood of a car when it is stopped at a red light. When the car starts driving, you will stay on the hood. When the police chase you, they will hit the car that you are on, making the driver mad and forcing him to drive faster. If they do not drive faster, it will still be difficult for the police to knock you off. Do not stand at the very top of the car, as you tend to slide off the back. Get on the very front, in front of the windshield.

Xx_Lone_Wolf_xX, Mar 9, 2008

Steal a police boat

Take a boat and ramp it so that when it lands it will be upside down. Quickly get out so you will be standing on the hull. Take out a rocket launcher and shoot any boats that are in range. After awhile, police boats will come after you. Take a manually targeting gun and shoot the officer though the glass. If done correctly, you should be able to get the police boat and have the police after you. Note: This is difficult to accomplish.

Ufarsderttx, Mar 9, 2008

Easy money

Occasionally as you wander around the city, you will encounter a cop fighting with a gang member (especially in Northpoint Mall). If you step in and hit the gang member, you will receive a $50 Good Citizen's Bonus when the gang member dies. Once the guy is on the ground, you can continue to kick him and receive the bonus two or three more times (until the body disappears). This is an easy way to get some quick cash, and do some fighting in the process.

amy_lee_rocks!, Mar 9, 2008

Easy rampage

If you are doing a rampage that requires a certain number of vehicles to be destroyed and you are near somewhere with a large garage, go over to it. Open the garage and blow the cars up while they are still inside. Walk away so that the garage closes, then return and the cars will be in perfect shape again. Blow them up again, and repeat the process. This is very useful for the two RPG rampages near Sunshine Autos (on the airport roof and on the big ship); and the chaingun rampage (near Fort Baxter). Since Sunshine Autos has so many large garages, it is easy to fly over in a helicopter, get the rampage, then fly back to Sunshine Autos to do the trick.

JMAN12, Mar 9, 2008

Better underwater view

To see things more clearly underwater, steal a Caddy, such as the one in the bushes around the lighthouse. Enable the "Car floats on water" code. While driving on the water, look through the windshield and underwater objects will now be in clear view. This is useful when looking at the underwater life and objects such as the Russian submarine.

Packaging0, Mar 9, 2008

Dodge cars

In the PlayStation2 version, when a car is driving directly at you, press Square when it gets close and Tommy will jump sideways, saving himself from being run over. For example, when the police are chasing you, they will try to hit to kill you. Press Square at the correct moment to save yourself from a collision.

JDogg, Mar 9, 2008

Avoid drowning in vehicle

If your car flips over while in water, enable the "Health" code. Then, enable the "Rainy weather" code and the "Car floats on water" code (if not already enabled). Keep repeating the "Health" code in between and after these codes. Your car should eventually flip back over and float on the water. This technique requires speed and practice. Note if you are in a Rhino, your chances of flipping back of are small; and if you make it, the Rhino will fly and bounce in the air.

lgoodacre, Mar 9, 2008

Increase wanted level quickly

Steal the Apache helicopter and fly towards one of the advertising airplanes that tow a banner. When you are close enough, shoot a missile at it. If you hit it, the plane will explode, giving you at least three stars. Do this about four times and you will have all six stars.

ibupronec, Mar 9, 2008

Start game faster

After you see the PlayStation2 logo, wait till the next screen appears. Then, immediately press L2 + R2 to get to the startup screen.

taironcruz12345, Mar 9, 2008

Enter Military Base Without Being Fired On

After completing the mission Cop Land, (it's about the 20-30th mission) head to the police station in Washington Beach, immediately turn left into the locker rooms and walk into the Cop Outfit blip, Tommy will now be wearing a cop outfit. When you go over to the military base, they will open the gates for you and they won't open fire on you.

Spawning a secret vehicle: a tow crane

If you want to spawn a towing crane, then you have to go to another island. Now you have to go to the southernmost point of the island. Go near the sea port, near the carrying trucks. Now in the parking place you can find tied cranes. Now to to east, in the airport direction, you can find working cranes. Spawn them.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Never ending session with prostitute

Steal any two door car. Pick up a prostitute and drive to any grassy area with a wall nearby. Drive up to the wall and park your car with your passenger's side against it. The prostitute will "do her thing" as usual, but after your car rocks the final time, the prostitute will not get out of the car, and will squeal and scream endlessly. You can let this go on forever, as your money will stop counting down after the final rock. The best place for this is near the Pole Position Club. All variety of prostitutes frequent the area, and there is a little grassy alley behind some bushes immediately across the street from Ocean Heights Apartment.

Slower cars with faster speed

Get a slow car (Washington, Glendale, etc.) and shoot the tires out on it. Then, shoot the windshield out and get in the car. Hold the hand brake and the gas at the same time for about five to ten seconds then release the hand brake. At first you will slide all over the street and sparks will be flying everywhere. Hold the car going through turns and try to keep it straight to get faster speed than before.

Haunted motorcycle

Have someone as a passenger on your motorcycle. Drive up north to Hyman Memorial Stadium. As you are facing the stadium from the adjacent street, turn left on the first street that loops around and drive through the grass. Go through the two palm trees all the way to the last telephone pole. Turn to the right and you will see the ocean. As you look to the ground, you can see a ledge of land underneath the layer of water. Ride the bike over to the ledge, trying not to fall into the ocean. You will notice that your life will begin to drain. Be careful not to go in too deep. As soon as you hear your passenger moan, get out. You will notice a pile of blood underneath. If you are lucky, you might get a trail of blood every time you accelerate. If you get off, the passenger will still be on the bike. After a while he/she will disappear. You will notice that if you accelerate and try to jump off the bike, it will just brake. Also, notice the person shows up with some camera angles. If you walk to the back of your bike, a trail of bloody footprints will be left behind as you go forward. Note: This was done with an Angel and a bodyguard (Tommy's henchman in a blue shirt) that you can get completing the game 100%.

Morph into car

The effect of this glitch is similar to the "Never fall off motorcycle" glitch, except with a hoodless car. Find a hoodless car and park it near the clothes. Get it near your door. When you get out, you will automatically change clothes. Get back and wait for a response, then go on the driver's side (make sure you closed the door) by the back of the car and press Triangle. Tommy will jump into the car and change clothes at the same time. You will be morphed into the car. The only cars that this will work on are the Comet, Stallion (hoodless), and Stinger. Your feet will appear under the car. Also, it is easier to park the car so that the clothes are actually touching you when you in the car. Then, get out, auto change, and when it reappears, go back in. When you press Forward + Up or some buttons, you will teleport and return to where you were. If you morphed into the car and get out, aim with the rocket launcher. You will zoom in and out and move around.
