1. If this code is enabled when
there is damage on your car, the meter will be reset to zero without
changing the visible effects of the damage.
2. You will not be able to fly a helicopter correctly when this code is
3. Also, if you change your appearance, you cannot pick up any "shirt
icons" (at Rafael's, Laundromat, Collars and Cuffs, etc.) or the game
will freeze. You cannot change into a pedestrian costume while in a vehicle
or in a special outfit (you must get "street" clothes).
4. The women will drop guns when they are killed.
5. Aim your gun at someone and they will attack your target.
6. To increase the effect of this code, enable it, go to the pause menu,
select "Load Game", choose any game, then enable the code again
and repeat as desired.
7. Press [Shift] when this code is enabled to jump.
vehicle physics: Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a
backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the
"handling.cfg" file in the
"grandtheftautovicecity\data\" folder. You can change the volocity
of the bikes, cars, boats, helicopters, and airplanes in the game.
Quick reload: When you run out of your clip, roll the mouse wheel up, then roll
it back down quickly. The weapon you were using will already be reloaded.
Stoppie bonuses: It is possible to get up to 150 second stoppie bonuses with this
trick. First, get a moped and drive to where there is a long, straight
stretch of road. Press [Keypad 9] to lean forward, then use the
brake. While you are doing a basic stoppie, release the brake and press the
gas (while still holding [Keypad 9]). You should be able to
"drive" on your one wheel for a long time. Note: You cannot turn
or do anything else.
Wheelie bonuses: It is possible to get up to 500 second wheelie bonuses with this
trick. You will need either need a moped or a dirt bike. With a dirt bike,
drive then do a wheelie. When you do the wheelie, you would normally hold
the gas and [Keypad 6]. Instead of holding those until you flip over,
get a pretty big wheelie then release the gas while still holding [Keypad
6]. If you are traveling at the correct speed, the dirt bike will keep
doing a wheelie without the need for your to press the gas. To keep your
momentum, tap the brake or the gas. With a moped, you need to listen to the
sound. Start to do a wheelie and when you hear scraping sounds on the road,
release the gas then quickly press it again before you go down to the
ground. Try to keep letting the gas off and pressing the gas until the
scrapping sound stops and you should be doing a steady wheelie.
Full rotation trick spot: Start at the Hyman Condo. It helps if you have saved the game
there with a PCJ 600 in the garage. Drive south very fast, past the V-Rock
building. You should see a ramp on the left leading up to the
"1412" building (across the street from the Love Fist tour
banner). Aim your speeding motorcycle onto the ramp and hit the outer stone
edge of it, somewhere between the first and second palm (where there are
bushes). Try to aim your motorcycle so that you land in the street. If done
correctly, this will launch the motorcycle into the air rotating, and with
some practice you will be able to pull off complete rotations to where you
can land and continue driving.
Unlimited pistol ammunition: Go to the Ammu-Nation in Downtown. Enter the back room and keep
doing the target challenge. You will notice that every time you complete it,
your pistol ammunition will go up. Eventually, there will be no ammo or
amount left in the clip shown under the pistol. Note: This trick can only be
done with the regular pistol, and not the revolver.
Fixed hood, trunk, and doors: Find any vehicle and have brass knuckles, a bat, or empty hand.
Hit either the hood, trunk, or doors two hits for each piece, them get in
the car. Press [F1] for a replay then press [F1] to exit the
replay. The doors, hood, and trunk will be perfect but open while driving.
If you hit anything three times, it will fall off and when driving fast the
front hood will fly off.
Driver's door stuck open: Enable the thugstools code, then get in front of anyone's
vehicle. Use the Ruger to shoot their head off then get in passenger side.
You cannot shut the driver's door unless you punch it off or get out of
Tire tracks in mid-air: Steal a Packer and back cars up its ramp. Sometimes you will see
tire tracks in mid-air. To find a Packer, go onto the tarmac behind the
Escobar International Airport Terminal.
Fall through game: Take a bike, preferably the PCJ 600, to Washington Beach. Go to
one of the outpost huts and place the bike facing the steps. Move backwards
until you have enough distance to get some real speed. Once you have done
this, drive towards the steps and try to fly over them. If done correctly,
when you hit them you will get the "Greetings From Vice City"
screen, then see yourself falling through the ground seemingly to nowhere.
However, eventually you will return to the ground in a far away area.
Stand underwater: Take any sports car with tires that do not become big (for
example, the Banshee). Enable the loadsoflittlethings code then drive
straight into the water. If you land on a rock, you can get out of the car
and stand underwater without getting wasted. If you do not land on a rock
,you will feel as if you are going endlessly down nowhere, but will land far
Easy Insane Stunt bonus: When you get the car that resembles an older Corvette, enable the
seaways code. Drive into the ocean, and the car will not float. It
will go down under and remain there for awhile. After a few seconds, the car
will respwan on the road. The game will give you lots of money, thinking
that you did an Insane Stunt.
Extended wheelies: Use the following trick to get wheelies that last as long as
desired. It may work with any motorcycle, but was performed with a PCJ 600.
Drive down to the Viceport Docks area. :ook for the trucks that look like
huge mobile ramps (they are also at the airport). There is one parked in the
parking lot two blocks south of the Pay 'N' Spray there if you cannot find
any driving around. Drive up the ramp of the truck carefully and slowly
until the front wheel goes over the edge and you are balancing with your
back wheel still on the ramp. Do not drive forward too far. Then, sit back
for as long as desired. When you are ready, start driving forward or
backward again. Note: Some rocking back and forth may be needed to get out
of that position. If done correctly, the game should give you a very low
money bonus (because the distance is usually only about four to seven feet),
but your "Longest Wheelie Time" stat should make up for that.
Note: This will only work when the bridges are opened, of course.
Note: Button presses are
described in PlayStation2 version format. Use the equivalent key on the PC
keyboard when playing that version.
Secret rooftop hideout:
Go to the Greasy Choppers Bike Club. Go north about a half block. On the
left hand side is a building with stairs (going over a gun that you can
obtain). Go up the stairs to the roof to find a shack that can be used to
store any motorcycle-class vehicle, etc. It only costs $1,000.
Go to where the Hyman Condo is located and go past the save point. Follow
the alley until it reaches the street. Across the street you will see a
restaurant named Tacocalypse. Enter the outdoor eating area and turn left to
find the Molotov cocktail.
Go off the coast to the east of the Greasy Chopper to see man in swimming
trunks that drowned due to a brick tied to him.
Go off the coast to the east of the Greasy Chopper to see a dead turtle.
Extra trick money:
Get a Sanchez motorcycle go near the Hyman condos. While on the Sanchez,
face the door that leads to the roof of the Hyman condos at an angle. Try to
wall ride on the side of the door by holding the wheelie (Down) and
pressing the gas fully. If you do wall ride and warp to the top of the
condo, you will get a trick worth $195 compared to a normal ten second
wheelie getting nowhere near that much.
Buy the Hyman Condo and go to
the rooftop with a Sanchez or a PCJ 600. Go very fast and make a left turn
where the long part of the roof is located. Do a wheelie immediately before
you hit the rail. You should go up in the air and spin like crazy. It is
possible to get over 1500 degrees of rotation and over $250.
Go on top on the VCN building, onto the helipad. The fourth window in from
the right will be an invisible wall. Get to the corner of the helipad and
jump inside to find an Easter Egg. If you did not fall through, you are at
the wrong window.
Go to the dirt bike track. Get on the parked dirt bike, start the mission,
but do not move. Wait for the three Cubans to appear and kill them. Take
their bikes and put them where the original dirt bike was located. Repeat
until you are satisfied with the amount of bikes there. Note: Fail the
mission first, then get back on the bike -- no more Cubans will appear if
you do not do this. Get far enough away not to die then either throw a
Molotov cocktail or a grenade at them, or shoot one until it catches on
fire. This will cause a chain reaction that will cause a enormous explosion
(and give you wanted stars).
Death at the tracks:
At Hyman Memorial Stadium, enter in the Hotring Racer event. Instead of
racing, park your car at a safe location (such as on top of higher ground
next to the pit stop). You can exit the car and shoot drivers coming around.
The race will not end until you have completed twelve laps or have exited
the event. Note: Explosives and flames will not damage any other race car.
Ronald Reagan poster:
In the PlayStation2 version, go to the Ammu-Nation. Go straight, never
turning, through the door until you hit the wall. Then, look to your left to
see the counter that has mannequin heads with helmets on them. Jump on the
mannequin heads (not just the counter because you need all the height you
can get), then face and touch the wall. Barely tilt the Analog-stick Down
so that Tommy's back is now facing the wall and still, if not barely
touching the wall. Equip the rocket launcher hold R1 to enter aiming
mode. Turn around so that you are facing the wall again, and look slightly
up. You should see a Ronald Reagan poster where he is holding a Colt .45
besides a person with bullet holes.
Project Gotham Racing reference:
Enter Hyman Memorial Stadium. In the Hotring Racing inside the dome, there
are various billboards. One of them says "Earn Money Not Kudos,"
referring to the points you earn in Project Gotham Racing.
International Airport: Easy money:
To get a large amount of money in a short time, get the Rhino Tank from Fort
Baxter Air Base. Drive it to Escobar International Airport. Once there,
activate the Vigilante missions. Almost all of the chases will take place on
the airstrip. They appear one behind the other and can just be rammed with
the tank or fired on. It is possible to get to level 66 in vigilante mode
with 760 kills and $5,000,000 in about a half hour. If you get stars, drive
to Sunshine Autos, and jump into a car, then drive into the Pay 'N' Spray.
You should have a large amount of mission time to drive there and back to
the airport with no problems.
International Airport: Rampage and hidden package: Go to the airport and find the billboard with a surfer. Directly
across from it is a plane. Enable the "Sabre Turbo" code and go
all the way to the wall. Make a 180 degree turn to face the billboard. At
full speed, align yourself so that you will hit he ramp and fly with a
cinematic view of your car landing on the roof. You can now find a hidden
package and rampage. The rampage requires you to blow up ten vehicles, You
can do this easily by enabling the "Destroy cars" code.
International Airport: Enter airport with weapons: When facing the airport building, go through the gate to the left
that leads into the runway area. Follow the airport building itself around
as far as you can and still have a window to your right. The last airport
window is fashioned into the cement of the building, but there is just
enough space for you to walk up to the outside portion of it. If you walk up
this outside portion and veer slightly to the left you, will instantly
appear on the other side of the glass. This may require several attempts.
Park a car by the entrance to
the airport. Jump on the car, then jump over the rail.
Get a Baggage Handler. Then,
enabling the "Better driving skills" code. Next, drive at full
speed at the security check and once you are halfway in, press L3. If
done correctly, you should be inside the airport while still on the Baggage
Handler with your weapons.
Drive into the airport and park
next to the metal detector. Jump over the fence. You cannot use the gun in
the airport, but it will be in Tommy's hand.
International Airport: Free ammunition: Drive to Escobar International Airport. Walk through the metal
detector. All your weapons will appear outside the airport, even those that
were completely out of ammunition. Leave and pick them up. Each weapon, even
the ones that were out of ammunition, will have earned a load of ammo.
Go into the police station and
change into the cop uniform. Then, buy one of each weapon you like and go to
the airport. Because you are wearing the uniform, you will be allowed to
enter with all of your weapons. However, as you pass in and out of the metal
detector, your range of firepower will be waiting outside. Keep doing this
for awhile and you will have all the ammunition needed.
International Airport: Rocket launcher: On the long drive to the airport, there is a short left turn into
the Hooker Inn hotel. There is a rocket launcher in the pool there.
International Airport: Spaz 12 shotgun: Look behind the wave-shaped billboard (unique jump) in front of
the airport terminal to get a Spaz 12 shotgun.
International Airport: Easy trick money: In the PlayStation2 version, get a Faggio and go to the runway
where the plane lands and takes off near the hangers. Go to one of the ends
and get up to speed, which is not very fast. Press Up + Square
+ Hand Brake. When you have gotten your back wheel off of the ground,
release Square and push the gas. If you drift to one way, very
slightly turn the same way and ride it out as far as you can go. If done
correctly, you can get well over 2000 feet and lots of money. It is very
tricky, but you can do a wheelie about the same distance at the same place
with the Faggio.
International Airport: Quick energy gain: When inside the airport, ride an escalator to regain your energy
International Airport: Runway support: Take a boat to the runway at the airport. Look underneath to see
that the part of the runway that extends over the water is not supported at
all, with the ground visible on the seawall behind it.
Baxter Air Force Base: Entering without a wanted level: Use this trick to enter the military base without getting the law
on you. Complete the Cop Land mission at the Vercetti Estate. After you
complete it, you will get the police uniform. It is located at the VCPD HQ
at Washington Beach. Go into the locker room and put it on. Then, get a
police car from the parking lot in the back and drive to the Fort Baxter Air
Force Base. You can now enter the base and be able to get the Hunter attack
helicopter. Note: This is best done between 20:00 and 24:00.
Links: Phallic symbol: When you are at Leaf Links Golf course at the country club
entrance, turn so your back is facing the entrance and you are looking out
to the city. Turn left less than a quarter turn to see three large
buildings. If it is dark, but before 00:00, hours you will see lights in the
windows of these buildings. The largest building will have a symbol of a
penis with two balls. Every 15 seconds, a squirt will appear from the top of
Links: Easy money: Go to the golf range and kill some old people there, They should
have a lot of money.
Links: Reload weapon: If you have a Uzi or another gun that you can keep when it is out

back out. When you pick up your weapon, it should be as if you just picked
it up or bought it. Note: This may not always work.
Links: Many guns: At the golf course, kill the guards at the gate. Walk through the
metal detector with a gun, and a lot of guns will appear.
Links: Golf club weapon: Sometimes there is a group of people outside the golf course.
Kill them and take the golf clubs.
Links: Bring weapons on golf course: Park any car to the left of the entrance to Leaf Links. Jump on
your car then onto the ramp made of golf clubs on the other side. You are
now on the course with all of your weapons. This is quite helpful on the
Four Iron mission.
Take a helicopter from a
hideout or wherever else over the golf course, and land inside. You can also
do this with a boat, but this can be hazardous as you may drown getting out.
Another way is to use the bridge that extends over the road outside the
course, on the same island. If you walk/run up to the bridge and then jump
over the railing, you will be inside the course with your weapons.
Links: Annoy guards: Get a PCJ 600 motorcycle and position yourself directly outside
the golf club (where the guards usually take your weapons). Move back far
enough so that you can to nearly top speed. Ride straight past where your
weapons are usually confiscated and go into the golf course. The guards will
try to chase you, but you will easily outrun them. If you were quick enough
through the gates, you will still have all your weapons.
Links: Shark: Go to Leaf Links golf course and move far down the back (where
there is a narrow brown bridge connecting the small island with the big
one). When on the bridge, you should be able to see a shark in the water.

outside to your car. Drive it into the Pay 'N' Spray. If you got hit by the
police, return to the store after your car is repainted and get the health
power-up. Run down the block and a new clerk will be back in Ryton Aid.
Repeat this process to get easy money.

and turn right. You will find a building without a door. Go into that
building and take a left. Directly ahead of you will be a hidden package.
There is a Patriot also located there, on the other side of Phils'. If you
go into the hillbilly trailer, directly ahead will be a gun rack full of
guns you cannot get. Take an 90 degree turn to find another one.
Havana: Easy money: Go to West Haven Community Healthcare Center, near the bridge to
Starfish Island. Stay there, and most of the time, two opposing gangs will
start a fight and eventually kill each other. They pack Colt 45s and some
money. Do not stand in the middle of the battle or you will get shot.

three rolls of money there. Take them and escape. Note: You can immediately
go back in the bank after exiting and the money will be there again.
After purchasing the Sunshine
Autos, steal a car and start running over the men directly outside of the
dealership. They carry lots of money and Uzi ammunition.
Havana: Sniper rifle: Go to Sunshine Autos, then head north until it ends. Turn right
and then find the alleyway that connects the two roads. Go in it, turn
right, and find the set of stairs. Go up the first, then there is another.

driving along the road. Drive on the left hand side of the road, opposite to
traffic. You will see a wide gravel path. Follow the path, being careful not
to run over anyone, until you get to a small, narrow bridge. Start ramming
your car into the side of the bridge. As soon as the car starts on fire, run
away. Wait until the car explodes, and then return to the bridge. A lot of
people should be dead, since many of them were walking on the bridge. If you
are lucky, you might even kill a police officer or two.

mansion. The second is on the lowest floor where the staircases are located
(pool level). This room is next to the exit to the pools. It is easy to
miss, but look for it. It is in a corner before you turn to the stairs going
Island: Trophies: When you complete the three events at the Hyman Memorial Stadium,
go to your mansion. In the first room to the right (above the television),
you will now have three trophies; one with a dirt bike, one with a star on
top, and one that reads "Vice City Champion 1986".
Island: Love Fist gas cans: Go to your mansion and enter the main office after completing the
Love Fist missions. Look on one of the tables to find two Love Fist gas
cans, marked "Hot N Sticky".
Island: RC helicopter box: In the new room of your mansion (next to the main entrance with
the minibar and a television), is a box for an RC helicopter, as if it were
a child's toy.
Island: Hunter box: After you have acquiring all 100 hidden packages and completing
the final mission (Keep Your Friends Close), go into the Vercetti mansion.
Go into the bar and turn to your left. You will then see a pistol weapon.
Under the pistol, you will see more trash. Look closely at the cover of the
box to see the Hunter helicopter you can get from Fort Baxter Air Base.
Island: Defaced Diaz painting: After you complete the Rub-Out mission, go upstairs and look to
the right on the wall outside of Tommy's office. The painting of Diaz has
been drawn on with a marker. Someone drew a pair of glasses and a few other
things on it.
Island: Scarface reference: In the "preparing for war" scene in Scarface,
the camera pans away from his surveillance system and the middle television
shows the main room in which all the bloodshed takes place. This is the same
picture used on every screen in Tommy's room at his mansion. It is also on
every screen at El Banko Corrupto, in their security room.
Island: Enter early: To get to Starfish Island without completing the missions, get a
fast motorcycle (not a moped). Go to the Starfish bridge and floor it
through the tiny hole used by bridge pedestrians. Wreck at the gate and the
game should put you on Starfish Island.
Spawn a Sabre Turbo and drive
very fast on the bridge to Starfish Island. Keep going when you see the
gate. You should get your car stuck half in the gate. Keep pushing on the
gas, and when you stop moving hit reverse. You should finally get through
Island: Good stunts: Get a Sanchez or a fast car and go to the Vercetti Mansion. Drive
up the big set of stairs leading to the door. Go off the side of the
stairway while doing a wheelie (with the Sanchez). You can sometimes get
1200 degrees and six flips.
Point: Grand Theft Auto screens: In the North Point Mall, go into the Tarbrush Cafe. Go behind the
counter and take a look at the registers. You will find screens from the
original Grand Theft Auto.
Enter the pizza restaurant to
find more Grand Theft Auto screens. Apparently throughout the game,
some store registers have the screens.
Point: Katana: In the North Point Mall, go into the Tarbrush Cafe. Go into the
back room to find the katana.
Point: North Point Mall shootout: Get to the North Point Mall, then enable any desired
"Weapons" code. Walk around the mall. You will soon hear shooting
and notice DPB security guards in a standoff somewhere with the gang clad in
jeans and vests, (your opponents in Phnom Pehn '86). Assist the gang
members, as they will not shoot you after the battle is over, like DBP. You
can then either look for more fights, or shoot one of the officers coming
near you. Get to a four star or higher wanted level. In the center of the
mall's bottom floor is a row of bushes. Take out a shotgun or assault rifle.
Begin to fire. Cops will jump through the shrubs and get slaughtered as they
cross. This is effective for about a minute, or until ten to twelve cops
have been shot. The police with then attempt to surround you. Use police
bribes, get killed, caught, or use a code to remove your wanted level.
Point: Meat cleaver: Go to the pizza shop walk around the back. Look to the northwest
corner to find a meat cleaver.
Point: Easy money: To get an easy $200 to $300, go to North Point Mall and follow a
police officer until he begins chasing someone. Attack that person with your
fists (no brass knuckles -- you gain more money without them) to get $50 for
every punch you throw. Be sure not to hit the police officer.
Go to the North Point mall at
the far end of town (from the hideout). Find The Gap and the CD store. Rob
the CD store by aiming at the clerk with auto aim. Wait until you get only
one star. When he sets the alarm off you will get another star. Then, run to
The Gap and get a change of clothes. The stars will go away. You can rob the
CD store clerk again. If he is not there, go downstairs at The Gap and rob
that clerk, going back and forth. This saves you a trip to the CD store just
to find out that the clerk is on break.
Go to the North Point Mall.
Lock on to almost any shop owner with a gun. Hold it until you get three
stars. He will give you about $1,000.
Point: Cheap hideout: Go across the street and to the north of North Point Mall to find
a house that can be bought for $2,500.
Point: RC Baron Race: Get in the Toy Fun Van on the top of the parking garage next to
the mall to start the RC Baron Race, in which you will fly RC planes across
Point: RC Bandit Race: Get in the Toy Fun Van near the dirt bike track.
Point: Village People: The Village People perform inside the Malibu Club. Dicing them up
with a chainsaw is very cathartic.
Point: Malibu Club massacre: Get some Molotov cocktails and a shotgun or another strong weapon
that can wipe out the police in one shot. Enter the Malibu Club and stand at
the entrance. Toss a Molotov cocktail into the center of the dance floor.
The whole place will go up in flames. Exit the Malibu Club. Come back in and
the people should be dancing again. The security guards will be after you.
Take out your shotgun and kill them. Take out a sniper rifle, go to the bar,
and snipe the bartenders. Kill the security guard that is blocking the
stairway and go up. There may be a few more bouncers that may need to be
taken out. Once up there, take out your sniper rifle. Zoom in on the people
dancing on the stage and kill them. Then, either use a grenade or rocket
launcher to blow up everyone in the club.
Go to the Washington Beach
police station, get the tear gas, then go to the Malibu Club. Get to the
center of the dance floor, throw them all, then run up to a table or the bar
just far enough to get out of their range. Turn around and might be able to
see a few of them die. They will create one large thump because it kills
them all at the same time, while only giving you a one star wanted level.
Note: Throwing them in the club nearly causes the game to freeze and makes
it lag terribly until the gas clears.
Point: Dancing policemen: Go to the Malibu Club. Go upstairs and shoot down on people. Get
a two or more stars on your wanted level then use the "Lower wanted
level" code. Go back down and you will now see the policemen dancing
Point: Big explosion: Go to the gas station in Washington Beach. There will be gas
tanks here. Throw a detonate grenade at one and run. Detonate it and it will
cause a big explosion.
Point: Scarface reference: The Malibu Club is based on the Babylon club in Scarface.
Point: New bartender: If you own the Malibu Club, look at the female bartender behind
the counter in the back. If you look closely, she is topless except for a
plus sign as used for censoring.
Later in the game when buy the
Malibu Club, go inside and you will see a pink mission circle. Do not go in
it. Instead, go out and do a few other missions by purchasing other
properties. Go back to the Malibu Club and the bartender will be replaced by
an almost naked woman who follows you just in the club. She gives flying
kisses to you and hands out bottles of beer.
Point: Sniper location: Go to the location of "The Chase" mission (apartment in
Vice Point). Go to the rooftop where you chased the man. When you reach the
first crack, drop into the gap. You are now in a good location for killing,
where you cannot get busted.
From the Malibu Club, go north
on the main road until you see an apartment complex on your left. It is
directly north of the road after you pass the Malibu Club's parking lot.
Once there, go up the stairs and face the road. Keep shooting people from
here. The weapons of choice are the machine gun with the manual aim or the
Point: Tear gas: Look behind the police station where the cop uniform is located
to find tear gas.
Port: Flame thrower: There is a flame thrower near 8-Ball's place. Before you turn
into it, go south near the wall to find it.
Port: Dead dolphin: Get a boat and take it somewhere between Escobar International
Airport and the docks. Do not go past the two big ships docked there -- stay
west of them. Just west of the two big ships around the shoreline is a dead
dolphin, just floating there. It does not move, and just floats around. Do
not try to jump on it, as you will fall through.
Port: 8-Ball's bomb shop: Go to the Pay 'N' Spray in Vice Port down by the boat docks. To
the left of it is an alley with a truck parked in front. Drive past the
truck and when you reach a large opening, turn left near the end of the
section (where the water starts). There will be some garages to your right.
The second or third one has an 8-Ball sign above it, and a bomb will be put
on your car.
Port: Sunken ship: To see sunken ship split in half, get any helicopter and fly to
the Little Havana bridge. Get directly in the middle of it and fly straight
south. When you see a big rock and three floating platforms, go slightly to
the right and a big tanker will appear under the water. The writing on the
side reads "Quartered Libertine Lines".
Take a sea Sparrow and fly it
to where the three wooden houses are in the water. Go to the right of the
one with no roof. There will be an underwater rock there. Next to it is a
huge ship like the ones that are docked along the shipyard that you can
climb on. If you keep following it, you will notice that it is broken in
Beach: Cleaver: You can find a cleaver behind the Well Stacked Pizza shop in
Beach: Shotgun: Get a vehicle and drive along the trail at Washington Beach.
Beach: Tear gas: Tear gas can be found in the parking lot directly behind the
Police Station in Washington Beach.
Beach: Scarface reference and chainsaw: Go to the gas station in Washington Beach, near the Mall. Do the
stunt that goes up the white stairs onto a roof, then do the stunt that
immediately follows afterwards. After that, you should be on the side of a
street. There should be an apartment with two flight of stairs leading up,
on the other side of the road. Go to the door on the right and enter the
apartment. It is marked as apartment 3C. Go into the bathroom, which is
almost identical to the classic chainsaw scene in the movie Scarface,
with blood stains on the wall. There will also be a chainsaw in there.
Beach: Phallic symbol: Go to the Malibu Club and look around for a water tower. Once you
have located it, look to the left of it. You will see a tall building next
to it. Look closely at the top of the building. It will say
"LANGER". Go to the parking lot directly across from the building
and make sure you have a clear view of the front of the building. Once the
game clock turns 23:00, lights will turn on, showing the form of a penis and
two balls. At the top of the building, liquid will squirt out for a short
time. When the game clock turns 24:00, the lights will change and this will
no longer be visible.
Beach: Aquatic life: Go to the lighthouse near Ocean Beach to view some aquatic life.
Once at the lighthouse, go out on the adjacent piers and use your first
person view to scan the waters. Occasionally you can spot schools of fish,
dolphin, sea turtles, and a large hungry shark. For more fun, wait on the
pier and soon the people around you will start going crazy and jump into the
water. None of them can swim, so the entire area becomes filled with
floating corpses and shark food.
Beach: Drowned man: There is a man floating in the water with cement shoes, west of
the hardware store. Go to the road that leads to star fish island and stop
at the Machete. Go to the left of the arch and fall down to the walkway,
then walk south on the sidewalk. Go as far south as possible. Just before
the last jog south, look down into the water with the sniper rifle to find
Beach: Ship silhouette: Stand on the lighthouse and use a sniper rifle to look out
towards the sea for boats. About 7 a.m. you can see a silhouette of a ship
that resembles the icon for the classic game "Battleship". It will
move across the screen a little bit then fade like a mirage.
Beach: Rockstar logo: Go to the lighthouse at night and look up. You should see some
stars that seem to be in the pattern of the Rockstar logo. The star at the
bottom of the "R" is brighter then the rest, symbolizing the star
at the bottom of the logo.
Beach: Sniping location: Find the parking deck with the neon lining at the top. This is
the parking deck with a Banshee and a PCJ 600. Walk up the stairs at the
north side of the parking deck. At the top of the stairs, there should be a
set of body armor. Turn to the right when you get to the top of the stairs.
Jump onto the side of the building, go around the corner, then around the
next one. Enable a weapons code to accumulate bazooka ammunition. Take out
the bazooka and shoot the cops. You can fill out all six wanted stars here,
and the only thing that can hurt you is the police chopper.
and cargo ship: You can find a sunken ship and a submarine up north off the
coast. The submarine is directly north of Ammu-Nation and The Tool Store at
Vice Point Mall. The cargo ship is east of the submarine.
Note: The submarine is Soviet,
as indicated by the red star on it.
Cortez's sunken yacht: After you finish the Colonel's missions, continue the game until
you are able to get a helicopter. Find the harbor on the third island and
fly to the south of it. Look around and you should see an oddly colored
object under the water. Switch to first person view while in the helicopter
and press L2 + R2 at the same time to look beneath you. You
should be able to see the Colonel's sunken ship.
man: On the first island somewhere along the thin channel is a docked
Dingy. Take it and go south until it opens up into the ocean. Make sure you
can see the bottom along the left wall. As soon as it opens up. follow it
and you will se a man at the bottom with his feet in a cement block.
second island early: Use the following trick to get to the second island without
cheating, or having the "saving cheat and bad reputation" message.
This trick requires a Coach, one other car, and $1,000. Take the Coach bus
to the Marina (where Colonel Cortez's yacht is located). Drive very fast
past his dock and go to the second one. The second dock has many boats. Ram
into the tree that is next to the gate. The tree should shatter and
disappear. Next, take the bus and line it up along side of the dock, facing
out toward the water. Get the front wheels up on the ledge. Use your other
car to push the Coach into the water. Once the bus is in the water, jump on
top of it and walk towards the other end of the roof of the bus. The Coach
will be long enough to allow you to bypass the locked gate and hop back onto
the pier. Then, take a boat and drive it to the second island. To save your
game, go the Skumole Shack just north of the Greasy Chopper bar. Use your
$1,000 to buy it and save the game. Now that you are here, you can get the
helicopter from the police station and go back and forth as needed.
Complete 100 taxi missions.
Your taxi will now be equipped with hydraulics. Get into a taxi and go to
the Marina. Go up to the far gate and line up with it. Reverse your taxi so
you can get a run up. Accelerate towards the gate. Press L3 just
before hitting it and your taxi will jump into the air and mysteriously fly
through the gate. Once you are on the other side, get out of your taxi and
get into one of the boats. You can now ride to the second island. Note: This
may require a few attempts.
Go to the hospital at Ocean
Beach. The bridge next to it is blocked off at the start of the game. On the
right side there is a gap between two cement road barriers. Start at the
last intersection before the bridge with a PCJ 600 and floor it. Aim
directly at the gap between the two cement barriers on the right. You will
pass right through them. This may require few attempts. You may also return
through the same gap, but make sure you have enough speed.
Go to the northwest part of the
island and look for a large white building with docks behind it. There
should be a Cheetah next to the dock. Line it up diagonally to the dock with
the front of the car pointing towards the opposite way of the road. Walk
along the edge of the parking lot until you find a PEG 800 motorcycle. Get
on the motorcycle and start driving straight towards the Cheetah. Before you
hit it, do a wheelie, then bail immediately when you hit it. You will fly
off and land on the dock. Then, jump in a boat and drive to the other
island. This is very difficult and will probably require a few attempts.
Get a PCJ-600 or a Freeway
bike. Drive up the ramp on the east street of Prawn Island and jump the
ramps on the roof to get into Interglobal Films. You will find a Packer in
the northeast corner of the lot. If you park the Packer at the correct angle
and distance from the north wall, you will be able to jump your bike past
the barricade and on the bridge. This will take a few attempts. The only way
to return is by flying the police helicopter found north of the Greasy
Jump on the railing of the
Prawn Island Bridge. Wait for a boat to pass under it. Aim and jump. Repeat
this until you actually manage to land in the boat. Note: The owner will
jump into the water in a panic. Drive the boat to the other island.
any locked area early: In the PlayStation2 version, enable the "Dodo car" code
and use any car. Go as fast as you can and press Analog-stick Back
jump over the highest obstruction blocking the next section of the game.
Keep repeating this until you get there.
Get a sniper rifle and find a
place where boats are appearing. Wait until one is coming roughly straight
at you, then take out the man piloting it with the rifle. If the boat was
moving fast enough, it will coast up to you. You should be able to jump onto
it. From there, you can get to almost anywhere. It may take awhile to find
out good spots to try this. One recommended location is behind Diaz's
mansion in the lawn behind the hedge maze.
Enable the "Cars float on
water" code. Then, simply drive on the water to get to any island.
In the PlayStation2 version,
while traveling at high speeds in an Infernus hit the gate the connects the
both islands. If done correctly, you can go through the gate on the right
side. Half of your vehicle will be on one side of the gate, and the other
half will be on the other side. You can press Triangle to step
outside your vehicle on the other side of the closed gate.
