Tips

a free garage

as you know on portland the triad fish building,well the road that turns and curves not the one that goes by the cafe but the one that does kind of a long circle around but any way the first garage on your right is screwed up so all you have to do is pull in the garage and there you go.


note:you can not save in the garage and another thing you can still get shot to!...

Become too good for COPS-CHOPPER-SWAT-FBI-ARMY

For the what you may call less experienced players of GTA3 I am putting together a way to stay cool under the pressure of Rhino tanks up you ass.

Now, as you should know, the Law enforcers in order are:

*= One cops per car with no guns, except if you jump onto a car.

**= Cop with guns and two per car.

***= The same as ** plus a police chopper with unlimited ammo

****= S.W.A.T vans which are mainly used as a roadblock

*****= Now they mean business! F.B.I cars appear from nowhere and try to pound on your ass!

******= They bring the Army out- Approach with caution!

Dealing with one star
This is relatively easy. The cars will not try to totally trash you car, but will try to get you to stop. Remember that the police cars are very fast when they want to be. If you want to lose the police they aren't very difficult to lose, just go around a few corners leaving them in you dust, or go to the nearest pay and spay shop and you are free! However if you want more of them on you kill more and a second star will appear.

Dealing with Two stars
Now that you have two stars, it gets harder, police in cars now start bumping you harder and now you need some driving skills on your side. For car damage purposes try to keep on the road, (yes your side!). If by now you are on foot, the police will try and run you down. This takes a chunk out of you health. Police will now try to shoot you, so try to dodge the bullets when possible. Unlike one star you WILL NOT just lose the cops by turning a few corners. The only way to lose them is by pay'n spray, unless you are on a mission and you cannot lose them, and when the mission is complete the miraculously forget where you are! From now on, the turn a few corners will not have you escape the police

Dealing with Three Stars
If your looking to be crushed by a tank congratulations! You are half way there! Now from absolutely nowhere
a police Chopper appears, and had some chassis denting bullets. You have to use both parts of your brain. You have to keep out of the chopper's way while dodging the now very wild police cars. This is now really the time to use open areas and go off the road. You need skills to make sure your car is kept intact, and every so often drop by your hideout to repair you car, Staunton Island would be the best for that. The chopper will remain there until the end, either of the chase, or your life!

Dealing with Four stars
There isn't much the SWAT threat you with, they are deadly slow, which can be to your advantage However they do block the road, which can cause allot of damage to the car if it is caught in the SWAT's web if road blocks, but if you break free they are practically useless. But now however the cop cars are SUICIDAL!

Dealing with five stars
If you have got this far you are doing well, but you have yet to push the Law enforcers to their max.
FBI cars are to a car collector very attractive with their rare colour. They will do their utmost to make you disappear to put it nicely, and there are a lot of em, so get going! The best way to keep them at bay is to keep one step ahead. Plan your route and where you think they will slip up.

Dealing with the mutha!- SIX STARS!
This is where being on foot doesn't pay off. every army guy has an M16. That means that if they see you, and can get a clear shot they will pump your body full of lead. This whole pumping thing will be over in 2.5 seconds, so he won't feel any pain! The tanks will try their best to crush you, so I hope that your car is of some speed. Like the SWATs, Barracks OLs will block your way, so use the same technique to get through them.

Phew!

These cars are good cars to put through the above techniques:

Bus
Kuruma
Esperantos
Rumpos
Sentinals
Cartel Crusier

These aren't very good cars to use and could be more easier destroyed:

Stinger
Banshee
Stallion/Diablo Stallion

Don't bother trying With these, unless you want to die:

Landstalker
Manana
Pereninal
Mr Whoopie


Now after you have done this, give a minute to remember all of those you killed in this experiment...............
NAHHHHHH don't bother!

If you want a Banshee, then go to Easy Credit Autos near 8 Balls place. Break the glass and there it is! (Sometimes it might not be there).

Complete 100 taxi missions (not in a row) to unlock The Borgini Taxi in the taxi depot in that place that looks like two square roads next to each other.

If you want to do a taxi mission in any car, get in a taxi and hold down R3, get out, enter any other car and let go of the R3 button. You'll have the taxi mission activated!

A tip for you guys, it's about moving about in Liberty City. Unlike San Andreas or Vice City, it isn't as big, so it'll be easier. Get familiar with the routes in the beginning so you won't have trouble later on in Story Mode. Just a little advice from a veteran.

Easiest way to beat the "Marked Man" mission.

I found this mission hard the first time but the easiest way to beat this mission is to get a 6-star wanted level then steal the tank (may take a while if you are a beginner but it's worth it) then just take the tank pick up that guy (whatever his name is) then go through the route where it leads to the airport and don't worry about the CIA guys doing damage to you. After you pass by them go to the airport, drop the guy, and then go back to his lockup and get $20000 cash with 4 different kinds of weapons and a bulletproof patriot!

Easiest way to kill Mr. Leone

The easiest way to kill him is before you start the mission first go and plant a bomb in the car at 8-ball's and then go and start the mission, instead of waiting for him outside Luigi's or anywhere else go to the entrence where Leone's mansion is then just wait for a few moments and then when he is about to enter through the entrance quickly get out of the car and arm the bomb and he should be toast. If that's too complicated or anything then just use the destroy cars cheat.

Fly out of cities!

Simply get into a tank (Ox6, R1, L2, L1, triangle, O, Triangle) and then use the flying car mode (R1, L1, R2, L1, Left, R1, R1, Triangle).

Then turn the tank missile thing 180 degrees (facing backwards) and keep firing while driving. The tank will soon pick up speed and then fly.

To fly this make sure you keep your finger on X and to keep level using the up and down arrows.

(it is advised not to turn when doing this, it will result in lots of barrel rolls and you wont be able to control the tank)

Give The Cops The Slip

Trying to get into some serious trouble? Use these tips to avoid being wasted and/or busted.

One Star- So, so easy. The cops have no guns and will not shoot you. They won't try to damage your car, but will try to stop you. You can lose One Star easily by speeding away from the cops and turning a few corners.

Two Stars- Still easy, but this time, you can't lose the cops unless you use the cheat or turn into a Pay'n'Spray ($1000). Now they WILL have guns and they WILL shoot you and ram your car. This still shouldn't be that much trouble.

Three Stars- OK, this is where things get trickier. Now in addition to the crazed cops, you'll have a helicopter on your tail. Oh, and if you destroy it, another one will soon arrive anyway. If you are in a car, try to have a fast one and on that can take a fair amount of damage. I find that a Kuruma works nicely. Infernuses and other fast cars like that are blown up too easily. Out of a car, try to stay under a roof or somewhere where it is harder for the helicopter to kill you. Shoot any cops that come near you.

Four Stars- Now the SWAT team has been deployed. Their vans are very slow, but they make GREAT roadblocks. You don't need anything fast in particular now, but something strong. Make sure it can still accelarate so you aren't busted, however. Staying out of the car is deadly. The SWAT team will kill you in (I timed it) exactly 2.8 seconds with their guns if you are outside your car. Run over the policeman and SWAT team with your car or shoot out of the window.

Five Stars- Suddenly FBI cars start coming out of nowhere. Don't even dare try to steal them. Don't evern dare to get out of your car. They are deadly fast and, might I add, suicidal. They WILL bring you down, unless you know what you're doing. If you are foolish enough to start blowing these things up, get on a roof and blast them with the rocket launcher before they have a chance to get out out of their car. The FBI have deadly accuracy and will kill you faster than the SWAT team. I reccomend to you only two cars. Either use the super fast Cheetah, or get into a Rhino Tank and run over these suicidal maniacs. If you do wish to steal an FBI car, drive up in front of it and get out. When the FBI people get out, quickly get back in your own car. Then run them down, and voila, their car is yours for the taking.

Six Stars- Congrats, you have managed to survive long enough to have the privilige of doing battle with the Army. Now masses of deadly Rhino tanks are deployed. STAY IN YOU CAR. Do not be tempted to steal one of these, unless the driver gets out and there are no other Rhino tanks in the immediate area. Otherwise, drive really fast and beg to not crash into one of these. One bump, and your car, will set on fire, which means your screwed, because once you grt out, you will be crushed by the Rhino tank and deadly FBI bullets. If you are extremely lucky and do steal a Rhino tank, you are pretty safe, and your only danger is getting busted. To go faster in it, turn the barrel around and shoot backwards, which will propel the tank forward. Run over mercilessly the other cars. Try to destroy other Rhinos with your cannon, otherwise, ram them faster than they ram you.

You can't keep this up forever. Eventually, one way or another, you will get busted or wasted. After you've lasted about 5 minutes in the 6-Star wanted level, use the Wanted Level Cheat (found anywhere on the Net) and declare proudly to your friends your accomplishment. Hope this helps!

Passenger Mission Hint

For missions involving picking up passengers such as the taxi or paramedic missions, save seconds off of each run by getting passengers into your vehicle faster. Do this by using a melee weapon such as a baseball bat or golf club, and hit the doors until they fall off. Don't hit the door too many times to prevent damage to the vehicle itself. Also, don't knock off the driver side door, because that provides you with protection from police wanting to bust you.

Prostitute Trick

Get a normal car and cruise the streets until you find a prostitute drive up next to her (make sure she is standing next to the drivers door) and she will talk to you for a couple of minutes then she will walk around to the other side of the car and get in. Drive to a dark place (an alley, your hideout etc.) and park the car but do not get out. The car will start shaking and your health will go up. Then you have two choices:
1)Stay still and let her get out then beat her up to get your money back, or
2) tap the gas right before she gets out then park the car and watch the car start shaking again which saves time since it costs a dollar a second when she is in the car.

Saving Ambulance Mission for last

If you happen to finish all the story missions you will have aggravated nearly all the gangs in each part of Portland and Staunton Island, making the ambulance mission VERY difficult. However, only the Columbians in Cedar Grove hate you in Shoreside Vale, so you can complete the Ambulance mission there easiest by using the "Good car-handling" cheat along with the "Slow game clock" cheat to complete the mission. Granted, it's cheating, but at least you've got a shot to get 100% completion.

4x4 missions without time limit

Here's a little cheat for those of you stuck on any of the 4x4 missions.

"A Ride in the Park"
"Multi Storey Mayhem"
"Patriot Playground"
"Gripped"

On beginning ANY of the missions, whether you are given 5, 10, 20 or 25 seconds to collect the 2nd checkpoint, wait until the timer is at "0" and just before the timer disappears pick up the next checkpoint. I did this first time by accident and it let me complete the rest of the mission without the timer. I did it first on the "Patriot Playground" mission and it worked a treat.
A little bonus too with it, is that is states on the game stats that you have completed the mission in the time it took you to collect the 2nd checkpoint, nice ha!!
If it doesn't work first or even 5th time DON'T give up it will work but you must be really precise with your timing. I've since tried it on all the other 3 missions and got them all down to 20 seconds. You can also use the great handling cheat to stop the car from rolling on its roof should you muck things up !!
Happy Drivin'!!

Best Way to Get BP Cheetah

There are a lot of ways to get the BP Cheetah. This is the one I used and it is by far the best.
Turismo
This is the mission you get the BP Cheetah in. It is El Burro's first mission. The starting point is by the entry to Callahan Bridge. Go start this mission by talking to El Burro on the phone.
Getting the Tank
Second, you need to get a tank. There are many ways to do this w/o cheats. You can get one by getting six stars. Or you can spawn one if you completed the "Emergancy Vehicle" list. You could also get one at Phil's place of you have beaten the game.
Start the Race
Now go to the point where you start the race. Make sure you don't hit any of the racers because you will fail. When the race starts, drive the tank back to the entrance to your hideout. Park the tank perpendicular to the road or in other words, right in front of your hideout entrance. Use the side view to see the racers come down this road. They will be coming up the road, not down. When they come, make sure one runs into the tank. The racer's cheetah will blow up. Now get out of the tank and push the blown up scrap(racer's blown up BP cheetah) into your garage. Stay by the scrap at all times. It has a tendency to disappear when your not looking.
Notes
-The BP Cheetah is everything proof except for bump damage and tanks.
-You can change the color w/o affecting its BP feature.
-This car is very useful for Portland when you are driving in St. Marks.

Bomb Da Base Playtip

Alright, to start off you must make sure you have the money needed. Then get 8-Ball and carry him to Portland Docks. Next, Go into the blue circle. A cinematic shows 8-Ball talking and then running behind a storage container. No practice shots. 8-Ball will run in and get killed. OK, go around the corner of the building and go up the stairs. Make sure you've got a clear view. Now, look at the guards and zoom in with the sguare button. Now, shoot the guy on the left side of the ramp. Then, shoot the one on the right side. He may take cover behind the Cartel Cruiser but, will still have parts unprotected. A shot any where kills. Now, Shoot the guy all the way to the left on the boat. Now, work your way to the right never adjusting your sights. All the men should be on the same level. Some of the men could be near red oil drums. Shoot them they explode like grenades. That should make you pass the mission on the first try. Now, get yourself a Cartel Cruiser and relax.

Dangerous weapons to use during missions

You might want to know what weapons not to use when you're struggling through a challenging mission, and don't want to die, and have to start the mission over:

The bazooka, and grenades are dangerous if you are in a tight place, or are unsure of how to throw the grenade right. Firing the Bazooka at an object that's relativly close, is very dangerous also.

Firing machine guns or the bazooka at nearby vehicles may lead to your own demise as well.

Also look out for:

Driving too close to a ledge, or near the water, and also driving through a dangerous neighborhood (like St. Marks after you're through with the mafia).
Hope this helps.

Dead Skunk In The Trunk

There is a really easy way to beat this mission that I am going to tell yo about. After you get the mission drive on over to where the blue dot is. You will see the car there, don't get in it though. Make sure that you still have some gernades left over from one of your earlier missions. Then just go over to the car where the Forelies will be sitting in. Take a gernade and throw it at the car. When this happens they will try to start chasing you. So then go up on the hill and make sure to hit the car one or two more times with the gernades and it will blow up. When this happens just go get in the car and start the mission. You wont be bothered by the other car at all, so you can just drive the the blue dot and finish the mission.

To do a Taxi delivery in ANY car is relatively easy and was discovered by CodeJunkie but I'll put this here for him.

To do this cheat/glitch is by getting into a Taxi and pressing and holding the R3 button and then getting out while still holding the button. Then get into any car you'd like and wait until you are fully into the car until you let go of R3. After that it should let you do the Taxi Mission in the car of your choice. Have Fun!

Dodo Flying

================TAKEOFF================
Get the Dodo on a nice, straight piece of road or runway, I suggest the latter until you are more experienced, then hold the down button on the controller. Accelerate down the runway while holding the button until you hear a scraping noise, then let go of the down button and the Dodo will start to lift off the floor. You must then quickly correct the Dodo and make sure that it's nose does not point too high in the air, or it will stall and you will fall out of the sky. While taking off, it is also a good idea to switch to the side view, as it will help you define when the nose of the plane is too high.

================TURNING================
Turning should be a gentle, calm motion and should not be attempted too quickly. You mustn't hold either of the turning buttons, as it will turn too quickly and you will run the risk of turning the whole Dodo over, which will result in you falling out of the sky. If you find that you have turned the Dodo too much, then you will have to correct the oversteer and turn the Dodo in the opposite direction. Turning is not that difficult once you get used to it, just remember to tap the keys and never hold them.

============GAINING ALTITUDE============
An easy way to gain altitude (height) would be to fly around the coasts of the islands, as the Dodo will be gaining altitude on it's own, as the nose of the Dodo will start to rise. Let it gain altitude for a couple of seconds, then tap down to level the plane out once more. Eventually, the Dodo will start flying at it's maximum height and it will stop loosing height every time you turn.

===============LANDING=================
When landing, make sure that you are level with what you want to land on and let go of the accelerator, then start tapping the up button to make the Dodo's nose rise slowly. Do not press the up to make the Dodo's nose rise, or it will rise too high and land like a helicopter. If you are doing this right, the Dodo should be gradually loosing altitude and you should be coming in level with the runway/road that you are landing on. When the Dodo touches down, apply the normal brakes and the handbrake and, if you have done this correctly, the Dodo should come to a complete halt.

chase the bobcat until you are near your hideout and ram it till it loses its package (use a big car, truck etc) don't pick up the package yet and try and get the person driving it to come out of his car as near to your hidout as possible.
if you do that succesfully you will have the car to yourself, but the doors are locked so youll have to push it to your hideout.
push it into your garage and let the door close.
when it opens it will be as good as new with the doors open and the bp ability etc.

Flying Tank

Yes, it is possible.

For first timers you should go to Francis International Airport and Activate the "Tank Cheat": Circle, Circle, Circle, Circle, Circle, Circle, R1, L2, L1, Triangle, Circle, Triangle

Also, contrary to popular belief, you can activate any code inside of any vehicles

Get inside the tank

Activate the "Flying Car Mode":
Right, R2, Circle, R1, L2, Down, L1, R1

Do not have the "Better Handling Car" cheat activated, i find the tank difficult to control.

Turn the gun on top of the tank around so it is pointing directly behind you. You can do this by using the R3 or R4 sticks (i don't remember which stick it is). Make sure the gun is pointed directly behind you otherwise the tank will spin out of control once airborn. Now position yourself on the runway, preferably towards staunton island. Start hitting circle to fire the canon. It does not matter if you use the accelerator or not, the tank goes very, very fast. I repeat, very very fast. It won't be long and you'll be in the air. Be sure to continue to hit the circle button. Always hit the circle button, however, you can coast to gain speed, but slowly tap the up button to gain altitude. Now, you should be in the air in no time. To steer, just tap the d-pad buttons, DO NOT HOLD THEM DOWN, OTHER WISE YOU WILL FIND YOURSELF IN A CRAZY SPIN. Up and down on the D pad should be self explanatory. They are opposite on the R3 or R4 button, yet again, i don't remeber which one. You can land on the tall buildings, an excellent place to use the sniper rifle, oh yes. By the way, it takes alot of practice. I find the easiest way to land on a tall building is to be above it obviously, than right as you get to it, hold the up button so the tank is pointing straight up in the air, and it will drop down on top. And with a little practice, it is easier than the dodo plane to fly, and alot faster.

Forelli Bros-dead skunk in the trunk

Get the Forellis attention. Right behind them there is a hill. If you are looking at the hill there is a lightpole on the left side next to the wall of the parking lot. Try to run of the hill diagonally to the upper left of the hill so your position ends up behind the lightpost. If done correctly, the forellis will follow you, won't make it up the hill and will slide down and get stuck behind the pole. I did this 5 times in a row so its pretty easy. Then you can either let him stay there or shoot him with a shotgun. For the second car, run up the rill diagonally so your position is toward the upper right. Let the car come up the hill and then run down parallel to the wall at the entrance. There is a sign that you can run behind. This is a little harder than the first car, but you should pull it off. If done correctly, you will be behind the sign and the 2nd car will try to follow you. Since there isn't enough room behind the sign for a car you can easily blast it with the shotgun.

Get to Shoreside Vale early without cheating

Get to Shoreside Vale early without cheating

Background Information:

I can remember one of the first things I did after I reached Staunton Island was hijacking a boat in the attempt to drive over to Shoreside Vale. Unfortuantly like many of the people who also did this, I found that Shorside Vale is surrounded by an "invisible barrier" that prevents you from driving your boat over to it. Additionally if you choose to hug the coast of Staunton Island you will find a nice metal blockade to greet you. So the point I am trying to make is that it is impossible to directly motor boat over to Shoreside Vale. In a nutshell my way of getting to Shoreside Vale involves strategically driving a motor boat up onto land and then "pushing" it over on to the other side of the barrier where you can then easily drive to Shoreside Vale.

Actually Doing It:

Let me first warn you that this trick I invented is farily diffuclt at first, but I can almost guarantee that after you try it a few times you'll get it. After a bit of practice you should be able to do it in less than 10 minutes. Once you are on Staunton Island (the 2nd Island), no matter how many missions you have done you can still do this trick. Start off by heading down to the docks and grab the police boat.(the police boat is the best boat for this because it is extreamley durable and reasonably fast) Head to your left in the direction of the metal blockade, when you are about 3 quarters of the way there survey the shores of Staunton Island and visually pick the closest area to metal blockade were you can EASILY put your boat up on land. After pinpointing the area where you will attempt to get up on, drive your boat far away from that location to pick up speed and then charge at you chosen point. Ideally you should land on or very close to the road, but most likely you land just out of the water on the grassy shore. TIP: It is much more important to land close to the road and have a good position away from the water rather than being closer to the metal blockade. Once that you have succefully gotten your boat on the shore now comes the fun part. Grab a car, preferably one that seems like it has a lot of horse power.
Here are the best cars for pushing the boat:

Garbage Car
Ambilenece
Any truck similar to the Triad Fishing trucks

Here are the ok cars for pushing the boat:

Seciurcar (for some reason tons of these appear when doing this trick at least for me)
Pickup Truck
Police car
Busses
Flat beds
Stingers

Here are some cars NOT to use unless you have to

Taxi Cabs
Vans
Any 4 passanger car that looks very generic

Be careful that you do not stray to far away from your boat or it might misterisouly disappear. If you have landed on the grass, before you even begin pushing angle your boat towards the road with the front leading and push with your car from behind if possible. TIP: Your guy works great for positioning and changing the angle of the boat on land, if you half to you can even use your guy to push the boat at an agonizingly slow place. Once you begin pushing your boat to the right on the road twords the army surplus store it is extreamly important to constantly check you car, the boat, and surrounding for smoke, because if your boat blows up its back to the docks. For the most part your boat is very durable and you only need to be really careful pushing it if is giving off smoke. The only thing that will severely damage it is cars blowing up and helicopter gun fire LOL (don't ask me how I figured that out) Even though your boat will not take much damage your car will so it is vital that you constantly "swap" cars. While you are pushing your car it is important to be cautious of not getting a police rating. A cool aspect of pushing the boat though is you can ram cop car and people with your boat and not piss of the police. Ok now back to pushing your boat. It is important to try to keep your boat on the road as much as possible to avoid hitting trees and going up hills. Although I shouldn't half to say it but try not to ram your boat into other cars, street lights, trees, builidings, ect… (this is priarmily for the people who could not understand why every time they tried complete the last mission for Salvatore Leone their car blew up) LOL
Once you have passed the army surplus store where the metal baricarde is located begin turning you boat to the right on the grass. It is important to notice the grass shore is a constant downward sloap twords the water and your boat will move faster than usual. When you reach the cement side walk stop pushing the boat with your car and park your car far away so that there is no chance of you accidently getting in your car when you press triangle. Get out of your and start pushing the boat with your guy so the bow (front) of the boat is facing the water. This part is difficult so take your time and make sure your boat does not go off the edge unless your in it. Constantly enter your boat and gun the engine to see if it'll go over the edge. If it does'nt get out and push the boat with your guy again until it starts sliding down, then run around to the either side of the boat and press triangle. Finally head twords Shorside Vale, the shore is so low there it is easy to just drive your boat up onto the land rather then exiting from the water.

Implications???

I have done this trick many times and it has not affected the story plot of the game so far. But then again I have not yet beaten the game. The only bad thing about this is that when you die or get busted on Shorside Vale it brings you back to the Staunton Island jail or hospital. So you just have to do my trick all over again to get to Shorside Vale.

Getting onto the next island

To skip onto next island do the following :
(Note : You won't be able to do any missions, but still you can explore the new level)

At the begining drop off 8 ball, then activate the "fly" & "goog handling" cheat. Now look for a very fast car (The banshee next to 8 ball's warehouse is good, you can get it by breaking the windows) anyway any fast car will do. Once you got the car go to the bridge, you can jump over the construction block (whatever you call them) without damaging the car by pressing L3 OR R3 (Sorry I can't remember which one it is,anyway try both). Now take a good run up and drive the car to the max (you don't have to jump here as the car will take off automatically), if you lucky you will clear the gap and fly onto the next island. You can also use this method to get to the last stage. Well it takes practice but it isn't impossible.

Getting out of spin (flying tank)

Usually the flying tank will get into a spin because it's unstable. When this happens, your game will freeze or the tank will spin uncontrollably. To get out of the spin, press triangle until the tank stops spinning. Now slightly aim the tank downward so it goes into a controlled nosedive. Now you can start up the turret again.

BE A TAXI DRIVER ON ANY CAR(EXCEPT FOR EMERGENCY VEHICLES)
Press and hold L3! Keep holding it and press triangle! Go to any other car and bress triange to enter! Then let go of L3! You are now a Taxi cab driver in that car!

COPS, GANGSTERS, AND ANGRY PEDS CANNOT OPEN YOUR CAR DOOR!(carjackers can though)
You need a loaded Uzi to do this trick! When a gang member, angry ped, or cop runs to your car, press and hold L2 or R2! Either one and they can't even open your car's doors on both sides!

FROZEN COPS
You need all 6 bribes in your hideout to do this trick! This doesn't always work properly but here it goes! Hide inside your Shoreside Vale Garage and start shooting people until you get 4 stars! After you do that, make a crazy streak by getting out of your garage so cops will start chasing you then go back into your garage! Wait a few seconds then run out and get all your bribes on the side of your garage! If you did it right, and you have no more wanted level then look around your hideout! You should see cops frozen, some with their empty hands still raised as if they are still pointing a gun!


MORE THAN 2 CARS IN YOUR STAUNTON ISLAND GARAGE
If you want to put a 3rd car inside your Staunton Island Garage park your car perpendicular to the garage door! Exit your vehicle and leave the door wide open! Go close enough to the garage so it opens then press triangle to reenter your car! Once you enter immediately press X and stuff the car into the garage!

Don't go into the van, instead push the van from behind so it ends up right behind the first magazine. Then get in the van and the mission will start.

Then set up a roadblock like the one that the triads did to you earlier. then run on the side of his house and when he comes take 2 blasts with the shotgun and his car and the roadblock will blow up. Since shotgun shells are plentiful, might as well conserve on sniper rifle shots.

GTA3-taking out the laundry

For this mission, I believe I used the flamethrower and drove usually a block ahead of the vans. Most of the time they drive in a pattern that you can easily tell where they are going to turn. To get the flamethrower, grab a fast car and jump off the ramp next to the subway and to get on the train track. Next, drive or walk down the track until you pass a station. There is a bend in the track to the left and the building on the left there is a flamethrower. Jump from the track onto the platform to where it is.

Don't get to comfortable because King Courtney wants you dead. As soon as the cinematic stops vans full of a unlimited supply of suicide bombers that come out one by one block the exits. Now, when that cinematic stops, get out of the car and switch to a uzi. If you don't have one pick one up before the mission at Ammu-nation or use the hand gun(Colt 45). Keep in motion and try to keep a good distance away from them. Shoot them when they are near the vans so, that it takes the vans out two. The key to passing the mission is to destroy the vans.

Exit the car and run to the right and go up the stairs so you are looking down at the entire lot. Activate the weapons cheat and arm the Bazooka, blow up all the vans from above, if there are still some madmen running you can walk to the edge and pick them off, then run back to the car. If there are any more madmen left you can pick him(them) off in the street, use the sniper rifle and dont let him get to close, once you see mission passed its over. hope this helps, Im new to this forum, but everyone gave me some great help on an earlier mission.

My Dodo Guide

Everyone has there own way of doing things,here is my way,it works for me{i use both the stick and the pad}! there are 3 stages in getting the dodo to fly/glide.

1. Take off using the stick guide the dodo to either runway facing staunt.isl. keep the plane in the middle of the runway,accelerate{now look from the side view and keep it there for now} and push the stick up slightly{not to the point where you see sparks,only about half that far}you should use aprx 1/2 to 3/4 of the runway before lifting off,as you acceletate you will see the nose of the plane go down farther and farther,now ease off the stick a bit still keeping it forward just a little,as you pick up speed the plane will lift off,KEEP the stick forward just enough to keep the plane level and you will climb{if you pull back or ease off to soon the plane will climb and stall then fall back to the ground or water}.

2. Getting it level once in the air,you must get the plane level,to do this {you can change back to the rear view now} you need to get the plane level where it no longer swoops or dives{it does this because it isnt going fast enough so it dives to pick up speed,then climbs again when its going fast enough to create lift,if it climbs to fast it stalls and dives again},after alot of practice its easy to level off,but until then,let it dive on its own and when it starts to climb again use the same technique as the take off to level out{pushing the stick forward slightly so it doesnt climb to fast}{you should almost NEVER pull back on the stick}after doing this a few times you should level out and be flying/gliding at the same speed and altitude{now your there,as its the key to long flight times}

3. Once level now once your level you can take your thumb off the accelerator{just like letting it idle} and now using the left/right on the pad{not the stick} turn by tapping the left or right,to turn sharper just tap the left/right faster and a little harder{not to hard as these buttons are preasure sensative},you will have to practice the turning to learn just how sharp you can turn without changing the ballence of the nose,just remember the plane willnot turn on a dime like a car,it must make wide turns. if you loose the level of the plane you can get it back simply by accelerating again and letting it dive then slightly pushing the stick up a little like before and working it until it levels out again!
like i said before,this is how i do it,it may not work for everyone,but it does work for me and so far my record is 11290 seconds!

No Traffic

No Traffic
DO NOT SAVE!!!! This trick is permanent!


In Staunton Island let’s say you get ‘Wasted’, and you start at the Hospital. Go up the stairs and head toward the stadium. Take a right at the end of the street, then a left at the end of that street. You will pass a group ‘Rockstar’ billboards; keep going you will pass a second group of ‘Rockstar’ billboards. Stop at the beginning of the third group of billboards. (What you want to do is block the street with tanks.) Use the tank cheat (Circle x6, R1, L2, L1, Circle, Triangle, Circle) and start building the blockade at the stadium wall (you will need about 10 or 11 tanks). Make a solid wall of tanks from the stadium wall to the other side of the street (duh). Double up on tanks in the street. After this you should notice there is no traffic around, this goes for all three boroughs (Portland, Staunton Island, Shoreside Vale).

-There will still be a few cars that appear the street.
-The Helicopter will still chase you.
-The cops chase you on foot.
-Occasionally you might run into a cop car.
-The authorities might set up a blockade of cars here or there.
-Cars do not work people will just rush through them.

-This is permanent even if you get rid of the tanks!!! (Right over the hill, across from the stadium you can dump the tanks in the river.)


Super Hydraulics

Hitch a Ride

Most cars you can ride on top of but the Bobcat and Cartel Cruiser you can ride on the bed (the back). You can stand in the back of these a cruise with the driver or shoot at people to cause mayhem. These trucks are the best because you usually don’t fall off (unless something dramatic happens). You can find the Bobcat around the Hospital/ Campus/ Stadium area and the Cartel Cruiser around the construction site(stauton Island).

PAPARAZZI PURGE MISSION

I found this mission to be extremely difficult being that the police boat you're suppose to use isn't very fast. One of the other walkthroughs mentioned that the reporter will ditch his boat after a while so you can follow him and get him on land. If you go down to the docks before actually accepting the mission there is a Speeder boat at the docks (Same boat that the reporter uses) You can move this boat close to the staircase you come down and park it there for pickup afterwords. This is useful for tailing the reporter at the same speed he's going until he ditches his boat at another dock. It would be a good idea to have a weapon ready because he tries to escape fast and has a car waiting.
I dont know if this will help anyone but I found it to be much easier than trying to shoot him from the police boat.

Repair that car for free!

When you are living next door to the garage in the red light zone, park a car in your garage. Retrieve the carlater on and it'll be repaired. Mind, this does nothing for your arrest rating.

Riding on cars

If you're just goofing around in the game, and feel like whacking a few gangsters in a neighborhood, I have a suggestion. Load up your guns (with codes) and then step in front of a car, preferably a taxi (the smaller newer kind). Jump onto the hood of it, and from there, carefully walk to the top of the car.
From here, as the car drives along, you can snipe out, or waste who ever you want, and you don't have to concentrate on running away, since the car is being driven by a taxi driver.

Run for longer

This isn't really a cheat but is good for escaping danger.
Instead of holding the X button to sprint,tap it repeatedly while moving to run for much longer!
I don't know how long you can run for so try and see.

S.A.M.

This mission can be a hard mission if you don't know what to do. What I did was I got to the boat as quick as possible with a fast car like the Banshee. Then I drove the boat to the airport and stopped it next to where the guy is next to the boat. I stopped at a distance and hit him with the sniper rifle. Then I got out of the boat and onto the land. Next take out the three guys next to the Cartel Crusier. Get up on the runway and shoot down the plane when it arrives. After you shoot down the plane gather up the packages and get in the Cartel Crusier. Drive off this runway and get to the one next to it. Then when you are going down the runway toward the ocean you'll see a hangar with a plane and a ramp inside it. Jump off the ramp and over the wall. (This way helps from getting your car damaged up by all the cops.) Then drive outside of this area and make your way to the subway on the right. Go in the subway and ride the train untill you get to the next stop. At this point you should be at the subway entrance near the construction site. (If not ride it untill you are.) Now just get back to the construction site and watch what happens.

Save as many Vehicles in Garages as you can stuff!!

You can store more than just 2 Vehicles in Staunton Island Hideout. Normally the door won't open after you've put 2 Vehicles in there but follow this cheat and you can put up to 6!!!

All you gotta do is drive the car up close to the door it doesn't open... Get out, walk up to the door now it opens, get back in the car drive inside. The door slams up and down until you get out. You can save up to 6 normal size cars although its hard to get the doors open. Other Garages proabably work for this cheat but their too small.

This CHEAT really WORKS!

An easier way to solve this mission is drive to Salvatore's house before he gets there, wait for him and then blow both cars away with the bazooka. If you don't have a bazooka, just simply use the weapon cheat code.

Doing the mission this way makes it simple. Before you take the job from Asuka enter the weapons cheat (R2,R2,L1,R2,left,down,right,up,left,down,right,up.)Now take the mission and park out front of the club. Three mafia Sentinels will pull up to the alley way. Put the roket launcher as your weapon. Put your sights on the car in the middle. Thats the one he enters. Right before he opens the door to the car blast him with the rocket launcher. If the other cars aren't taken out then shoot the remaining Mafia members.

Go around the area where the entrance to the first island around the area where you begin the game and look for a garage around the restaurant and first get a semi and drive strait into the garage door and the semi will disapear into the door and walla you will be inside it is also a good way to get away from the cops.

p.s- this will only work if you have a semi.

Secret Garage!

Looking to lose the cops while on Portland Island?
Near 'Turtle Head Fishing Co.' there are 3 garages (facing the road) all of which have sliding doors. Although none of these actually open you can go straight through one of them. Even though the pigs can go through as well it takes them an age to find you.

secret message.

In Staunton island go to the liberty tree offices car park were the mission with the suicide-bombers try to blow you up, (please forgive me for not remembering the title of the mission). Then hed North out to the street and make your way to the under-ground car park but ignore it and keep on travilling down the alley with steps at the end of it. Drive a car to the top of the stairs and get out, jump ontop of the car and onto the brown roof-top,walk west on the roof until you get to the end were the ground below is i think grey,jump down onto it. walk about sealed-off area until you see that the creators of the game has left you a message! i though it was rather funny.

Slow Cars On El Burro's Turismo Mission

To make the cars you are competing against drive very slow during the race, arrive at the starting grid as normal but before you start the race, attempt to 'jack the right-hand door of the three cars waiting on the grid. You will find that all of them are locked. After doing this, get into a car and start the race by driving into the blue circle. You should now win the race very easily, as they will be driving at snail speed.

Sniper Tower

This isn't really a cheat but for those of you who didn't know there is a great sniper spot on top of the AMco Building in staunton island across from the police station. When you approach it you will see a sign with AM written on it. Go up the small set of stairs at the front of the building then move around it until you see a larger flight of stairs. There are many stories ,and a hidden package at the top, I found the best spot to snipe from is on top of the first large flight of stairs. Also if there is any need for escape go back down the stairs and look for an under ground carpark. Have fun!

The Best "Flying the Dodo" FAQ

If you haven't found the other dodo flying FAQs helpful, then try this one.
Getting the Dodo
First, go to the airport in Shoreside Vale because you just beginning and need airspace to fly. Get in one of the dodos and go to the back end of the runway that leads to the end of Staunton Island. Line up the dodo with the middle of the runway. *Use the analog stick when flying the dodo.
Taking Off
You are now aligned with the runway. Mash (X) down because you will need good take off speed to stay in the air or gain altitude. Slightly hold the left joystick down. As you speed up hold it further down. As soon as you see a scraping of the prop on the runway, release the joystick until you the dodo tips 45 deg.(n/4 rad.). Now even the dodo out so that it is flying straight.
Flying the Dodo
When flying the dodo, don't pull up too much because you will lose speed very fast and fall into a stall. Also, if you do fall into a nosedive, don't pull up too much. Let the dodo even its self out. Don't turn too rapidly because the dodo will flip and could fall into a stall. You will constantly have to even the dodo out, but it is the trick to flying it. The dodo will naturally gain altitude by tipping up. When this happens, keep evening it out. Make small turns to avoid large altitude loss. Whatever you do, don't hit anything because the dodo probably won't be able to recover.
Landing the Dodo
Landing the dodo is much easier than landing the tank because the dodo flip and spin and also flies at lower speeds. Come to a long strip of land(airport runway) and align with it. Now lower your altitude slowly until you are bearly above the strip of land. Now mash the brake and let it set down. If you don't care about the dodo, just randomly crash it anywhere.

Uses of the Dodo
-You can visit hidden areas and hard to reach places
-Some places worth visiting are Panlantic Construction cutscene area for Asuka, Kenji's cutscene area on the roof of the Casino, and Donald Love's cutscene area on top of his building. The dodo may be hard to get up to Donald Love's cutscene, but it's worth a try. The best place to visit is Ghost City located behind the mountains of Shoreside Vale. You won't miss it. Ghost City is the beginning bank robbery cutscene area. PM me if you ever land there thanks to my Dodo maual.
Misc
-This is probably the 100th dodo FAQ.

The Best Place for Dodo Takeoff

For beginners or people that need a quick dodo takeoff in Shoreside Vale, 1st go to the dam entrance. Follow the road next to the dam entrance all the way up to the blocked tunnel. Drive the dodo down the hill. Avoid any cars. You will gain speed very fast and takeoff very easily. This is a good spot for getting to places in Staunton Island and Portland.

The Exchange

The Exchange can be a hard mission if you don't know what you're doing. That's what I am here for.
With Cheats
Using cheats for this mission is rather easy. Go to the Cartel Mansion. When the cutscene ends, run behind the garage and put in the weapon codes. Now go kill 2-3 columbians and run out of the mansion. Get a fast car, shouldn't be hard. Head for the Dam. When you get to the entrance, use the rocket launcher to blow up the columbians and their vehicles that stand in the way. Now run in and sniper all of the Columbians in order. *When you see the Baracks Ol truck come after you, quickly take it out with the M16 or rocket launcher. There are snipers in watch tower areas, so watch out. When you see Catilina in the chopper, take it out with 2-3 rockets. Now run up to the helipad area where Maria is and take out the columbians. MISSION PASSED!
W/O Codes
Do the same as "with codes" except...
-use the handgun from cutscene to take out the columbians.
-collect all hidden packages
-instead of going to the dam, drive to your hideout and pick up all the weapons and health you need
-rush back to the dam
-use the same steps as "with codes" except use more precision and speed. Try to take out Catalina's Chopper early too.
MISSION PASSED!

Turismo problem

Hey, just a fair warning for anyone starting the game; the moment the Turismo mission for the Diablos becomes available, comlete that, and all the other diablo missions, before finishing the missions for the Italian Mafia. Once the Mafia is your enemy, the Turismo mission, and any other mission in the Mafia territory becomes impossible because of the firepower of the patroling mafia. So finish up the Diablo missions before you get yourself in a fix.

Turn on the flying cars cheat, get in the rhino tank, turn the turret around and use the gas and the gun to get the tank airborne, once in the air you only have to use the gun to keep speed, if you don't try to climb too fast you can easily fly as long and as high as you please.

Walk on sky

This is not a code it is a kind of glitch. Anyways go to marcos bistro on portland island, with an ambulance, and go to the very top of all the stairs with the ambulance and reverse the ambulance up and onto the small pile of dirt that is on the edge at the top. Then, climb the front of the ambulance onto its roof and jump to the roof directly next to you on the left. Then just keep walking and you will be on the sky but occasionally you will fall. Its not a joke it really works and its really easy to do.
