Tony Hawk's Underground Tips
Back to top
If your confused about 129/129 goals, don't worry. You can complete 129/129 goals on Too Easy mode. It worked for me. 129/129 goals includes not only all the mission goals, but the special ones that have a coin over a pro skater's head.

In career mode go to Manhatten. Here get in the nut vender's car. Walking around seventy-eight waters there is a lady. Drive over her with your car and when she slaps you get off you board. You will be standing there boardless and there will be no traffic.
note: if you do a trick your board will come back but there will still be no traffic.

all you have to do is drive at a boundary and right after you hit it and respond, press reverse and you should be outside.
To complete the Highscore/Highscore Combo missions, simply go for a lip trick (Tap Triangle on half pipe, ledge or other objects) or grind (Tap Triangle above rails or certain objects) and hammer the Triangle, Square and Circle buttons (while keeping yourself balanced) and your combo will rack up huge scores.
Doing this will get you through Story Mode a lot quicker.
If you are in a contest at Tampa An or for some reason you want to find out a way to get more points easily, then read this. Go into a fat manuel, if you are street or vert and keep pressing either Square, X or Circle in any order. You should start to get lots of points, if you really want even more then you can ollie and just as you land do a Casper Handstand or a Yeah Right manuel. Using this tip should mean instant sucess with scores over a million in contests.

when freestyling press the R2 button repetedly to spin your freestyle trick. this results in a highpoint value and a cool show.
Once you get the no gravity cheat: ("getitup" in the cheat thing...) the go to tampa and go to the bridge that never goes down... get off your board and jump - but before you hit the ground then jumo again and again and again- keep doing this until you've reached the top of the bridge- its really cool! but be careful not to jump over the top of the bridge- all you'll do it hit the water!

Go to create a goal and create one. Then when you place the ped you can place them on buildings that you could normally not get on top of. Then play the level and select view goals click on your goal and you'll be on a building. This doesn't work on all buildings.
first of all go to a place where if you land on the ground you die, like water. jump onto the area and right before you hit the water press start go to options and click set reset. if you did it at the right time you shouldn't have time to press start again after clicking set reset. if done correctly you will die, but imediately after(while the red lettering is still on the screen) click start go to options a click goto custum reset. You will be on that area.
If you are having trouble doing a combo to get one stat up, then keep the combo going to get more and more, stop. The easiest way to get your stats up is to do one stat challenge for it, then land. Your stats will increase, making the next stat challenge easier. Keep doing this with all your stats, and most likely, you will have them full by the end of the game.

Go to vancover and go to the hotel. once you are in the lobby where there are the fountains look toward the side where the phones are. go to the lion head fountain on the left. jump ontop of it and very slowly start walking toward the left of the center of the window on the left. you should look like you jump right before you hit the window and you should then fall through the ground ( if you don't fall through just back up and try again).once you fall through walk to the right to fall a little bitt further then you can investigate.you can now go behind the front desk, in the displays at the front of the hotel, or even into the evalator if you get on you board.
you know on school 2, there is a gap with the gym rails right? and next to it are closed gym doors. Well if you get off your board and stand next to those doors, rotate the camera, you should see a blue pool or some ramps. Now to get inside is easy, but requires some patience. Pause the game facing the opposite direction of the gym doors for 10-60 minutes. then unpause it and you should be able to gain access to the pool, and the ramps by going inside those once closed doors. There are more gaps for you to find, like: "High Pool Dive" or something like that. I know this because one time i was on that level and went to dinner and in about 30 minutes i saw that the gym doors were open. I hope this works for you, because if you want to attain all gaps, you will need to know how to get inside the gym.

you know that if you have moon you can scale buildings, but if you get to high you stay floating if you hold forward or fall if you don't do anything. there is a way of overcomeing this. while you are stopped rapidly press X. While pressing x let go of forward( keep pressing x after you let go of forward). you will jump up. at the climax of your jump hold forward and do this over and over again.
note: eventually you will reach the very top of the level where there is an invisible ceiling and you can't go any higher.

To get inside the mall in Tampa, ride up one of the quarter pipe next to the entrance and press R2 to spine through the glass to another quarter pipe inside the mall.
When you go to san diego and you talk to Rodney Mullen he shows you how to do a 540 flip off a roof top and then acid drop into the quarterpipe where the horse is, but instead of the 540 flip being in yellow th acid drop is highligted, i don't know if it is a glitch or not but it is weird

put the moon gravity cheat on and climb the stadiam in vancover on right and keep jumping up and right then you fall behid the gate but you can go thourgh it so stay away from it walk to the building wall or away from the white sritps and start to skate forever but if you fall and you don't hit the white then you are stuck (and the 2 player could win easily then)
To do this just beat the game on any two difficulties. When you beat it the second time it should have the Alternate ending where your character punches him instead of having to complete his line.

First, you must have unlocked the cool specials cheat. Go on Too Easy or Beginner (doesn't work on Sick, may work on Normal). Make one of your special moves a flip (preferably) or a grab. Then, move close to a rail. Perform the move so that you do the special in slow motion, and before the move finishes (and so while the slow-mo is still going on) grind the rail. If you do it right you'll be skating slow-mo constantly. To turn it off, just do another special and let it run its course (or just quit the level).

In each level in story mode you will find a pro skater with a different icon above their heads. Some move, so you'll have to catch them. When you find one, they will teach you a new special trick, and you will get a new special trick slot.

Have on moon gravity. Go to the building with the face on it. get into the bowl on top then jump on to the highway. start jumping on the wall opposite the building till you get stuck. then keep going up by tapping X and pressing forward at the hight of the jump then letting it go and do it again.after doing that for a few seconds head over toward the tunnel on the highway and just keep jumping up these walls. You will finally get to the tallest building in Manhatten.If you go to the other end of the building you can jump off and be outside the street barriers without that darn red print sending you back.
In Tampa, When you do Tampa AM, always try and do as many transfers as possible. these give u alot of points!!!

to do this you need to get to an area where you are stuck when standing. Get on your board and hold forward. When you are upside down get off you board. you will be slightly lower than before. just keep doing this and you will be underneath the level.

Go to the Manhattan level, once you start, turn around. You will see two buldings. One is white, and the other one is a brownish color.(this cheat will only work if you have moon gravity on) On the white building, jump on the dome over the doors. Then press and hold X. Soon, you will reach the top. You will fall down(make sure you are still over the doors and when you are going up, you are holding the analog stick towards the buildings)into the lobby. It's a little boring, and when you get out through the doors they don't shatter or open. You cando the same thing with the other building, but it doesn't have a dome over the doors.
