"The Driver" Tip

If you are having trouble doing this mission, I suggest trying this:

Around the first corner of the race, before it starts, park an Infernus and another tall vehicle side by side, blocking the road. When you start the race and go to that turn, with luck he will strike the tall vehicle trying to get around it and spin out, giving you time to hop into the Infernus. He may catch up to you, but you can just try to spin him out a few times.

Army Jeep

Any easy way to get a Army Jeep is to do this:

You must have Vercetti Estate. Go to the Heli-Pad in the Mansion and do the cheat for Cop Stars up until you have all. Then get in the Helicopter. Fly above the mansion, and wait until you see one of the Army Jeeps. Quickly lower down and hop in, then Lower you Wanted Stars to zero as fast as you can, and then you have it!

Beat Last Mission Idea

This is how I completed "Keep you friends close"
Before you begin, buy a an uzi(or any of that type) a spaz shotgun(that fires rounds off fast) and a fair amount of sniper ammo.

Start off in room with safe and run out onto the top stair. From here you can cap all the mafia guys that run in from the main door and the right bottom and top doors before they get a chance to shoot. when lance comes out run down the stairs and into the bar room (bottom left) and pick up armor and health (these will respawn later) and run out, straight across the room to the hallway opposite the bar room (bottom right) killing any mafia guy that appears. go up the stairs taking care to shoot anyone that poses a threat to you. When you get to the rooftop with Lance, run straight past everyone, up onto the helipad and walk slowly to the edge just so you can see the heads of the mafia guys poking out (their bullets will hit the edge of the helipad instead of you). cap them all and do the same for Lance, 2 headshots. If you need more armor or health (recommended) head down to the bar room and then up the stairs to watch the clip with Sonny.

(deep breath)

ok, now it gets difficult! head back up to the roof and once there grad the adrenelin pill and run towards the edge of the rooftop facing the street (not the one facing the river), with the pill you will do a long jump right to the wall. from here you can get out of the bush without worry about things happening too fast. kill the mafia guys that jump out of the limos and then whip out your spaz shotgun and use it to blow up the limos. now go to the top of the stairs, get out your sniper and zoom in through the doorway - LOOK theres SONNY! shoot him 4-5 times in the head and you've won.

I hope this guide was helpful. Vote if you want to. It may take a couple of times to do it but once you know what your doing it is easy.

Bullet Proof

Hint: Bullet Proof Cars
Admiral. Also fire-proof, explosion-proof, and collision-proof. Activate the Guardian Angels mission (from Colonel Cortez), and kill the Haitian gang members. The Admiral is the white car Diaz drives in the cut-scene. Deliberately fail the mission by killing Diaz, Lance, or letting the Haitian biker escape with Diaz's money.

Once the mission fails, the Admiral's doors will be unlocked and you can drive it back to the garage of your choice. Naturally, you will need to purchase property that has a garage first.

Sabre Turbo. Pick up a sniper rifle or assault rifle that allows Tommy to shoot through a first person view. During the mission "The Driver" (this mission is available only after certain conditions are met, primarily buying the Malibu Club) remain at the Malibu Club and wait for the Sabre Turbo come for the race. When it does, shoot the driver in the head and sieze it quickly before the cops come. The Sabre Turbo is faster than the Admiral, but is not collision proof.

Car Chase

Ok this has a 50-50 chance of working but i find doing it by red traffic lights work best.

Okay first get a few grenades and go to a red traffic light where a few vechiles are starting to arrive and throw in a grenade.

If the vechile is just out of reach and the bomb doesn't affect it then you have done it right.

Now here's the 50-50 chance bit.

If the vechile suddenly goes around the other cars like a jacked car then it's time for you to get your car and speed off because the vechile will give chase to you and keep ramming you at top speed.

If you want to lose the vechile you can either blow it up by a drive by or go at your fastest speed and lose it(It wont come after you again)

Cop Helicopter

One of the best helicopters in the game. You can only get this if you kill Diaz and get his mansion. When you enter the mansion go the left with all the go through all the turns until you get to the top. (there will be rooms halfway there but dont get through that hallway). Once you get to the top you will see a helicopter. (If you dont come later. do a mission and then come back). Fly the helicopter to the downtown area (next to little havana) and look for the police headquaters on the top will be the helicopter. NOTE: Best to do this after you beat the game. It is easier to find it for some reason.

Da Perfect Car! OMG!!!!1111

To get the perfect car that is EVERYTHING PROOF, that's right, EVERYTHING PROOF. Ok, for the dumb ones, let me explain. Crash it into a wall 3 times, run head on into another car, run into a tree, knock down all the lights and street lights, drive through a fire, and your car will be in mint condition.

Anyway, to get it, get to the Guardian Angels mission. If you past it, just start a new game, it doesn't take that long to get to that mission. It took me about a half an hour.

When you get to the part where you need to meet with Diaz, get up on the vantage point. When the Haitians come, kill Diaz by shooting him, try doing this early so you don't need to fight off as much Haitans. Once Diaz is dead, kill his men if you have to and kill all the surrounding Haitians, which isn't hard if you don't have many there. Now, walk over to the Admiral there that Diaz was standing by. Walk in and crash into the wall a few times. If it is as good as new, get it into your garage and fast. This car will be VERY useful during missions where the police is after you, so take good care of it and do not lose it in the water or get busted in it. Happy driving

Easier Cash through Ped Riots

You can gain a lot of cash when ever there is a pedestrian riot. First, you must enable the Pedestrian Riot code(D, L, U, L, X, R2, R1, L2, L1). After you have that enabled, the pedestrians would start attacking each other. Whenever you see a group of them, throw a grenade at them. That way, you will earn more cash.

So,before you do one of the missions,get a hammer,chainsaw,katana,etc. or you can simply just use your fist,then,knock off the doors on the car,so it wont take time away cause they take too long to open the doors. when the doors are off,of course there's no doors to open,they just hop right in. i hope you guys find the usefull.

1. Go to the VCN building's helipad. The VCN Maverick helicopter is parked there.
The VCN building on the west island, downtown area. It is on the north side of North Bridge (the bridge that leads to Prawn Island). At ground level, the building has a large logo reading "EIGHT TEN VCN" and an open door slightly to the east. This door leads to the roof, where you can climb up the ramp to the helipad. You can also reach the helipad by taking any other helicopter and landing there.
2. On the helipad, go to the north west corner of the pad and face west. You can see an apartment block with lots of windows. Ttake a running jump at the nearest set of windows. You will unnaturally go through the windows.
3. Keep walking forward. Eventually, the camera will come into the room with you and you will see you are in a plain room with barren walls, a blue floor and a white plinth in the centre. On the plinth is a large chocolate egg with the words "Happy Easter" written on in icing.

Fly to the Underworld

If you'd like to fly into the underworld, there are a few ways to do it.

1. Get a helicoptor (from on top of the police station or radio station) then fly to the building across from the Malibu Club with the green awning. Slowly manuver yourself under it and fly up. You'll go through the awning and into the underworld. If you fly too high or too low, you'll re-appear in the street.

2. Get a helicoptor and fly to Diaz's old mansion which is probably now the Vercetti Estate. Go back to the pool and slowly work your way inside. Fly up into the ceiling and you'll be in the underworld. This way is harder.

3. Get a helicoptor (you might want to do the cars float on water cheat for this one as it is excedingly hard) and fly to a bridge. You can go under it and fly up through it. It's really easy to crash this way though so be careful.


I've tried and succeeded in all three ways. Good luck!

Get Into The Golf Course Without Losing Your Weapons

This especially helps on Avery Carrington's first mission "Four Iron" When near the entrance to the Golf Course, there should be a Comet parked right outside near an unbreakable fence. Drive towards the unbreakable fence, (To the right of the Comet) and then jump onto the car. You should see a corner of the fence, blocked out by a shed or something. Move to the part of the car closest to that corner, and jump over the fence. You should be in the Golf Course! (By the way, if you get stuck inside the fence, go towards the entrance, and you'll see a small path that will lead you back outside)

Another way to do this is to go towards the closed bridge near the golf course. Look up, and you should see a long, skinny wooden bridge. Go up the steep slope where the beginning of the bridge is, and there should be a short part of it that can be easily jumped over. Jump over it, go acrost it, and enter the golf course! (Jumping over the small part of the bridge can be difficult, so it may take a few tries)

Verified by: bradriley, matthewr11 Submitted by: braden on June 30, 2008

Get to the second mainland early, without cheating!

This is a sort of a programmers error on Rockstar's part.



Go to the Cortez docks, you can do this at any time. Go to the northern most dock entrance. You should see a tree. Drive a car into the tree to break it apart. Now head north a bit and hunt for people in the grassy maze-like walkway. Beat them up with FISTS, not any other weapon- otherwise you'll attract cops much faster than normal.


After 'owning' a certain amount of people, an ambulance will come. Beat down the ambulance EMT's, and take the truck. Park it so the two back wheels are on the border of the dock area, where you smashed the tree. Get out. Make sure the left side of the truck is pretty close to the dock entrance pillar/column (door frame basically). Now from the front of the ambulance, run into it to push it into the water. If you get enough running speed and accuracy (staying in the middle of the engine area), you will end up tossing the ambulance further than normal, over the edge. You should be able to jump onto the ambulance from various angles - but be careful not to hit the water. Remember, Tommy will roll when he lands, and you may overshoot the jump!


Now, if you threw the ambulance far enough, you should be able to jump on the dock strip, steal a boat, and sail to the second mainland. If you are having trouble with this, you may want to use two ambulances, or try to find a Bus to throw in.

Two places you can reach the land, to roam around the second island, are the eastern seashore, around the middle of the island. There should be a dock, where a coast guard speeder loads. You should be able to jump to the dock, and climb up to the island.

The other place is on the north end of the island, near the stadium. There is a small grassy hill near the helipad area. Ram the boat up the hill, and jump onto land to roam around.


I also recommend robbing the pharmacy that's near the pay and spray in the middle of the island, then using the pay and spray right next door to kill the wanted level. Get at least 1000 dollars, then go north on the long road. You will turn right when the road curves. While on that road, look left for a flight of brown stairs. Climb them, and enter the shack that's there. This is known as the Skumole Shack. Buy it with that 1000 bucks, and you can now save on the second island.

Also, go back down the stairs, and head left on the road (so you are heading north).

One of the buildings youll see on the left, has a flight of steps leading to a platform. Climb this to get closer to the police station, or the VCN headquarters. Both of these places have choppers you can fly. Use them if you wish, to get all the packages early in the game. (Consult one of the many packages maps on the internet or strategy guides)

Getting the Hunter

This is pretty easy. The hunter is an awesome vehicle, it's a hunter with guns on it . You'll have fun with this. Anyway....

Make sure you have done the 'Cop Land' mission. Go to the police station in Vice Point. Just walk in and spring into the locker room. If there is a cop in there shooting, just ignore him, he won't hurt you too bad. Get the cop outfit right near the showers. Once you get the cop outfit, the cops will stop shooting. Walk out and get the police car parked in the back. Drive over to Fort Baxter Air Base which is near Escobar. When you get there, go into the base. Now this is the tricky part. The base is kind of a maze. Don't mind the army guys, they won't shoot. First off, climb up the first tower and jump off the side to get to the other side of the fence. It shouldn't hurt you too bad. Then go over to the building, there is a stairway near there. You'll be on it. Walk across it and then get off near where the fencing stops. Now run over to the other side of the base. The fencing has stopped. Simply walk over it. Now run to the other side again. A nice cool-looking helicopter will be standing right there. Go in it! The soldiers won't mind . Once you get in it, you'll be hooked. And don't forget to shoot at those army guys for being so gullible

The car will either stop and the driver will flee, or the driver will panic and speed. You want it to speed. Now if he does, crouch down and look to the back. Take out your molitiv cocktails and toss them around. It will cause lot's of destruction and even lure the firetruck which is a very powerful and useful vehicle.

Motorcycle Type Speed Boost

When in a dirt bike, scooter, or motorcycle, gently press forward to make Tommy lean slightly forward on the bike(s). This causes the bike to accelerate much faster, and when at top speed, provides a speed boost of about 8-10 mph. Great way to accelerate, especially when fleeing cops, or on timed missions.

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.

pedestrian passenger

Edited by mod: Find a PCJ, Freeway, Faggio, or Sanchez that has two people riding on it. Run over the enemy bike so that both riding characters fly off. Get on the bike before either gets on, and then drive the bike up to the character that was riding in the back, before the character riding in the front of the bike reaches you and throws you off. The second character will calmly walk to the bike and get on while you are on it. Drive away and the first character will dissappear. (so nobody will try to take the bike from you)

As long as you don't get off again, the second character will stay on the bike with you.

You can place extra vehicles in your garages. This mostly works if you are placing a car that is small and can fit with another car that is already in the garage. First, bring your motorcycle/vehicle to the garage that is already full and place it in front of the garage. Get out of the vehicle so that the garage opens. Then quickly get back inside the vehicle and place it inside.

The Cherry Popper Ice Cream Mission

Description:
Use your Mr.Whoopee to distribute treats to the locals around town. You must deliver 50 in a row to complete the mission.

Important Buttons:
[L3] -> plays Ice Cream truck music.

Since the ice cream is filled with drugs, the cops will come after you in a short while. If they catch you, or you die, you will fail the mission and have to start over. A good idea is to sell some ice cream in one area, and then go to another for a new batch of people. If you go to a Pay n Spray while doing the mission, you will lose your Wanted Stars for a short while. This is key to beating the mission. The best place to sell the ice cream is around Pay n Sprays, such as the Docks area where a lot of people are. It is a good idea to keep your wanted level below 2.

Here is a list of the money you will make depending on the area of Vice City you are in:

Airport............$12 per sale
Starfish Island....$18 per sale
Prawn Island.......$14 per sale
Little Havana......$8 per sale
Little Haiti.......$8 per sale
All Others.........$10 per sale

THE EASIEST WAY TO COMPLETE THE LAST MISSION- NEVER FOUND ON INTERNET BEFORE

I had some serious trouble killing Sonny, and could not find a hint that worked for me ANYWHERE on the net. I could have done it with cheats, ofcourse, but for the non cheaters, here it is:

When you get to fight Sonny, run straight towards the helipad where you killed Lance, but go DOWN the stairs. There MAY be mafia down there but it is unlikely I found. There is a health AND an armour respawn, along with a few weapons. They will spawn constantly! Now, 100 armour and 100 health. Go back to the lobby, just go slightly forward away from the alley you just came out of and lean over the balcony, firing shotgun hits at Sonny until your ARMOUR is gone. As soon as it is, RUN, or you could easily die. The health and armour will be respawned already! Two or three goes and Sonny is DEAD =)

Also, easy way to kill Lance. Get some grenades. I used detonatables, just incase I didn't throw them far enough. As soon as you get to the helipad, run straight to the helicopter. Edge forward towards Lance chucking grenades. Eventually you will get a dead on hit Although, I think it requires two hits, to trigger the TWO scripts the game has programmed.

Have fun


P.S. If anyone could spread my Sonny guide over the net, it would be a great help, as I failed to find a guide that got me through the mission in my 10+ attempts. Good job I decided to go exploring down that staircase when I got scared of Sonny

Thankyoup

Tip for Autodice Mission

Here's a handy tip for the autocide mission.

When you have to take out people who are in a car or van, go to a high up area, or a place far away and shoot out their tires, they'll probably start to drive off, but will be driving badly because of the shot out tire, so it will be much easier for you now to run them off the road or blow up their car.

Tip for the Mission "Cap the Collectors"

People think this mission is so hard, I think it's one of the easiest.

Make sure you have an automatic aim gun, preferrably a one shot kill gun.

Drive over to the Cherry Popper Ice Cream Factory. Park your car or truck in the dollar icon where you collect your money. Get the Mr. Whoopee Ice Cream Truck and put it there for extra protection aswell. Knee down in front of them and wait for the collectors to come, don't worry about your other businesses. When they come, as soon as you can, shoot the guy in the back off. After that, knock the guy in the front off and shoot him when hes on the floor. More should come after that, but just use the same tactic and eventually you will pass the mission. It's really easy and DO NOT panic if they just sit there doing nothing, just kill them as fast as you can. They have powerful weapons, so make sure they are dead. Aim twice to see if it still aims at them, if they get up, you may get shot up like swiss cheese.

Tip for Vigilante Missions

An easy way of doing these is the tank. Get the tank from Fort Baxter (if you unlocked it there) or steal one when you get 6 wanted stars. Make sure you store it in a garage and get sprayed. Get the tank back from your garage and drive over to Escobar.

Drive really deep in the terminal area. NOW start the vigilante. Most of the criminals will be driving around there. Just kill 12 and you got yourself more percentage done and 150 armor.

The advantage of going to the terminal is that there is no traffic and its's easier to evade cops there if they come. Oh, and make sure you store your tank somewhere safe, that baby is going to help you a lot in this game .

Tip: Easy win on Sunshine Autos

No cheats are required for this.

Get on the top floor of Sunshine Autos and shoot out the windows. Make sure you have plenty of ammo and weapons. Start killing people and cops and get a six star wanted level. Wait for the tanks to come. Make sure your on a building or something, the top floor of Sunshine Autos is a good place. Snipe the drivers of the tank. Jump through the window and QUICKLY grab the tank, you might get more holes in you then swiss cheese if your are too slow, especially with the army guys with rugers. Drive the tank as fast as you can into a garage, it will safe in there if you die or get busted after the door to the garage is shut.

Next, steal a police car or a secret police cheetah or banshee. Drive it a little ways down the road into Little Haiti and get sprayed. Be a good boy for a few seconds and the stars will be gone. Now drive back to Sunshine Autos. Pick any race, I would start with the ones closest to Sunshine Autos so you don't have to travel in that slow tank. I would go with V.C. Endurance or Terminal Velocity. DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT shoot or run into the racers before the countdown, the race will be cancelled and you will lose a ton of money, especially on V.C. Endurace. Get into the starting grid, but go very slow and make sure you don't bump into anyone or the race will be cancelled. When the countdown starts, get ready, cause your going to have to do this fast. When it says go, accelrate and press O. The side car should run right into you, so that one is almost automatically eliminated. The two cars in the front, if you press O a lot, they will blow up. Now, get out of the tank, get into a car, and do the race. When your done, the tank should still be there. Grab the tank, head to Sunshine Autos, do another race or keep it in your garage.

I won all my races with this tactic, and there is no cheating involved. If you do cheat, you can do this easily and just type in the tank cheat, and your on your way.

Tip: Frenzies

Usually if there are frenzies left and you killed Diaz, your going to have your hands full.

Diaz's men, the Columbians, will be your target after Diaz is dead in frenzies, and that my friend, is NOT a good thing. These guys are very agressive and I think you should know that from the "Death Row" mission. If you don't have good aim or a car, you might as well crown yourself a piece of swiss cheese, cause your going to get holes in you.

Try doing frenzies BEFORE killing Diaz, all you have to do is kill Cubans, who are pretty easy cause they only have weak pistols.

Flying The Tank

Text:
================TAKEOFF================

Get the tank on a nice, straight piece of road or runway, I suggest the latter until you are more experienced, then enter the Dodo cars cheat (Right, R2, Circle, R1, L2, Down, L1, R1). Begin to accelerate down the runway or road while firing the tank's turret by pressing the circle button to gain speed. When you feel you have enough speed, tap the down button on the controller to lift the nose of the tank if it hasn't lifted by itself already. At this point, you must 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 and you also must make sure that you keep firing the turret.

================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 tank over, which will result in you falling out of the sky. If you find that you have turned the tank too much, then you will have to correct the oversteer and turn the tank 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 and take time when turning. When flying, tanks cannot turn very easily, so you will have to have patience. As you are more experienced though, I am sure you will find ways of improving turning.

============GAINING ALTITUDE============

To gain height is relatively easy using the tank. To do so, tap the down button when in the sky a little while firing the turret. This will change your direction from forwards to upwards. Again, tap the down button and not hold it and never let the nose of the tank get too high when attempting to gain altitude or the tank will simply fall out of the sky. Take it slow, and you should be alright.

===============LANDING=================

When landing, make sure that you are level with what you want to land on and stop firing the turret behind you, then start tapping the up button to make the tank's nose rise slowly. If you are doing this right, the tank should be gradually loosing altitude and you should be coming in level with the runway/road that you are landing on. When the tank touches down, apply the normal brakes and the handbrake and, if you have done this correctly, the tank should come to a complete halt.

Images:

================TAKEOFF================


The runway - a good place to start off.


Gain speed by firing the turret and accelerating.


Take off by slightly raising nose when up to speed.


Level out the tank while in the air to prevent stalling.


Keep firing the turret to maintain altitude.


================TURNING================


Tap left or right to turn. Don't turn too quickly!


Ensure you turn consistently, and don't bank the tank too much.


Achive a good bank by only tapping the turning button, never holding.


============GAINING ALTITUDE============


Raise the nose by tapping down and fire the turret rapidly to begin to gain height.


Be sure not to raise the nose too high, or you will fall out of the sky!


Lower the nose slightly if you find the tank is going to slow and almost stalling.


Soon, you will be flying as high as the tallest buildings in Vice!


===============LANDING=================


Try to get level with the road/runway you are landing on and raise the nose to slow down and loose height.


Make sure you are level, and always press up to make sure the tank doesn't gain too much speed.


The perfect landing.

Also, see how long you can drive a bike on the roads without crashing into an invisible building!

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. Also, knock over the parking meters on the sides of the streets to get money. Additionally, purchasing the strip club or the docks will earn you extra money.

Easy money in Little Haiti
Go to the location of the Ryton Aid and the adjacent Pay And Spray. Steal any car and park it directly in front of the Pay And Spray. Enter the Ryton Aid and rob it by pointing a gun at the clerk until you have three stars on your wanted meter. Drop the gun, take the money, and run outside to your car. Drive it into the Pay And 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.

Easy money in North Point
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. Also, 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.

RC Baron Race in North Point
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 the island.

Grand Theft Auto screens in North Point
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.

Secret rooftop hideout in downtown
Go to the Greasy Choppers Bike Club. Go north about a half block. On the left hand side is a building with stairs. Go up the stairs to the roof to find a shack that can be used to store any motorcycle-class vehicle, etc.

Angel motorcycle
Go to the Greasy Choppers Bike Club in Downtown to find the patriotic Angel motorcycle.

Infernus at Northpoint Mall
Destroy most of the cars in the multistory car garage at Northpoint Mall. When you return, most of the cars will be replaced with Infernuses.

Patriot
To get the Patriot from Grand Theft Auto 3, go to the movie set located on the top middle island of your map You can either buy the set or you can just get in a motorcycle and do a jump over the wall. Also, go to Phil Cassidy's trailer in Little Haiti. Enter and you will see a trailer. Look left to see a building-like garage. A Patriot is parked inside.

PCJ 600 motorcycle
Go to Vice Point and find the Standing Vice Point building near the beach. Drive along the sides of the building across the street from the makeshift ramp to find a PCJ 600.

Motorcycle tricks
Press Down(2) while riding a motorcycle-class vehicle to pop a wheelie. Press Up(2) while riding to stand. Get a PCJ 600. From a stop, press Down and press X. When the motorcycle is in a wheelie, tap the X rapidly to keep the bike up. This will allow you stay in the wheelie for as long as desired. This is also a great way to make money. Choose a dirt bike or sport bike and build up a little speed. If you hit the regular and emergency brakes at the same time and stand up (Left Analog-stick Up), you can do a stoppie and earn some money. You can also get extra points for flipping around 180 degrees on the front wheel.

Bailing
When in a motorcycle-class vehicle, you can bail while jumping off a ramp by pressing Triangle. This is helpful if you are driving a damaged motorcycle and somehow it sets on fire in the air. This can also used to bail from any out of control vehicle before it lands in water or crashes. This is useful if you know you cannot stop in time. Note: You may take damage from the bail.

Baseball bat
Look in the alleyway directly behind your hideout to find a baseball bat.

Brass knuckles
Look slightly north (less than 100 feet) from the baseball bat behind your hideout to find a set of brass knuckles.

Chainsaw
Enter the apartment building in Ocean Beach next to the Pay & Spray. Find the open door to apartment 30. To your right is a bathroom with blood all over. The chainsaw can be found there.

Cleaver
You can find a cleaver behind the Well Stacked Pizza shop in Washington Beach.

Knife
Go to the alleyway in the south-east corner of the east island (where you start) to find the knife.

Shotgun
You can find a shotgun at any time by going to the top of the Washington Mall via the car park (the circle ramp). When at the top of the building, do down the left side ramp, and then immediately turn around. The gun is to the left of the ramp at the back.

Decrease wanted level to zero
You can clear your wanted level by entering a RC Racer Competition. You do not have to complete the competition to clear your wanted level.

Run longer
Tap X instead of holding it to make Tommy's stamina last longer.

Change size of the moon
Use the sniper rifle at night, zoom in on the moon, then shoot it. It will get bigger or smaller.

Leave car door open
Exit a car while holding Handbrake. You will not close the door, which can be useful if you know that you are going to need to get back in quickly.

Media coverage
Get your wanted level to six stars to get your pursuit covered in the media. A helicopter and chase meter will appear. Keep running from the helicopter to increase it. Every 100 seconds of game time will result in an increased level of media coverage. Pause the game and look at your statistics to see messages that indicate your media level. You will start with a story in UFA Today and progress to television news and continue until it is a crisis.

Get to any locked area early
Enable the "Dodo car" code and use any car. Go as fast as you can and press Analog-stick Back and jump over the highest obstruction blocking the next section of the game. Keep repeating this until you get there. Also, 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. Also, enable the "Cars float on water" code. Then, simply drive on the water to get to any island.

Boatyard business
Buy the Boatyard in Vice Port for $10,000. Get in one of the boats and start the Checkpoint Charlie mission. Take the boat through all the checkpoints within the allotted time. After this, the Boatyard will begin making money for you. Repeat the mission to increase the amount of money that it brings in. The maximum amount you can make per day is $2,000 to begin with. This number increases each time the Checkpoint Charlie is completed.

Cherry Popper Ice Cream Factory business

Indistructable tank? I think not!

If ever you get the fabled 6 stars and have tanks on your tail FEAR NOT! as the tank is not indistructable. You have to use either the flame thrower or molotove cocktails and set the thing alight it will explode extremly quickly. This is far easier than sniping the drivers but be carful that you don't get run over by the flaming peice of military hardware!

Kill people without getting wanted stars! Get money too, and guns from cops, etc.

Here's what you do. Get in a car, not motorcycle or any fancy vehicles. You need something that runs over people.

Drive real slow (the accelerate button IS pressure sensitive). Drive up slow to a person, right behind them. If they dont run away, and are just walking like nothin, accelerate a little and run them over. They should not die if you do it as slow as possible. Leave the car on top of them, and get out. Wait there, and eventually the people will die, dropping some items/guns, and also, you will not get wanted stars. Works on cops too!

When they die, get back in the car, move it off, and grab any dropped items. Usually a crowd will form over the body. Try again? Up to you. Not the best way to make money- use it mostly for the handgun. At most, you get 100 dollars. You never know when you'll need it though!

The machete can be found on the first island. Head all the way north. On the map, there are 3 bridges connecting the main island with the island you unlock later on. On the northern bridge, right as you enter, heading west, you'll notice a walkway on the left. Cross the bridge, to enter the walkway from the opposite side.

Tired of being chased by cops for a couple of innocent murders? Well now you can laugh at them as they do nothing while you slaughter your enemies!!!

Simply get in a helicopter and dip your helicopter to the front, have the rotor baldes touch a pedestrian and you will kill the. You can do this over and over and not receive one single wanted star.

messed up...but fun

Fixed by Raijin1999:

Requirements: Own Sunshine Autos property

Take your sea sparrow, or any other heli' of similar size, and carefully fly it into the Sunshine Auto's spray garage. When the door closes and reopens, your heli' will have wheels. While you cannot control the front wheels or accelerate like a car, you can glide down to the ground while moving forward to ride out in a straight line until momentum wears down.

You can also use the floating cars cheat to make the tires buoyant, and thus, helis' can then float on water.

PCJ-600 Spawning Position

Drive to the Cortez Docks, and head along the dock gate, NORTH. Before you reach the last closed Dock Entrance, you should have seen a PCJ parked near the gate. If it's not there, move a few hundred feet away, and come back and it should spawn back there. There are also a few cars that spawn in the parking garage near there, as well as a few others that spawn on the other far side end of the Docking Gates (south).

super bikers garage trick

okay. i fogot the name of this save area, but its north west, has a helipad, and 3 garages.


i found a secret with the garages. well, more of a glitch. i dont know if its been mentioned already, but here's the deal.

theres 3 garages. the left most one is super big, and the last two are medium size.

Im a big blue motorcycle collector, and bike enthusiast.

I was able to fit 4 bikes in the first garage, and 3 in the other two, for a total of 10 bikes that always stay there. Parking any more in there does make them dissappear the second the door closes.

what you have to do is when the message appears, saying you cant store any more vehicles inside, get off the bike near the door. It will open, now get back on the bike and enter with ease. Get off it after you park them in nice order, save and that's that. The limit is 4 bikes, 3 bikes, 3 bikes. I tried more bikes, but they did dissappear. Anyhow, i don't know about cars/golf caddies, but you wont be able to fit more than two cars in each, maybe 3 in the fat one.
Anyhow, good biking!

Normal garages can also store at least 2 bikes!

Under Vice City

There are 2 ways to get under Vice City for a stroll:

1) Get the Sea Sparrow and go into the mansion through the back indoor pool. Just go through the ceiling and don't hit anything. Find your way out and you be in an upside down Vice City.

2) Go to the building across the street from the Martha's Mug Shot building. Take a heli and go through the little roof over the main entrance. You will be in the building. Now just move over from where you came in and go through the floor. You will then be under Vice City.

uzi respawn point

on the map, there are 3 bridges connecting the two main islands. on the northern most bridge, there is a small island between the two main islands. Close to the center of the small island are 3 run down houses in a ghetto area. The 3 houses are part of a 'WAY'. The house in the middle should have a green color, and have a gang van parked right in front of it. That house has a machine gun on its front steps. grab it, and return after driving off a good distance, come back, and it will have respawned. Beats paying 400 bucks for it!
