Blood Brothers Get a Raise(Spoilers)
A hard choice, Derrick or Francis. Well, if money is you're game, get a raise for snipng Derrick by calling Francis. You get 20,000 if you call Fracis before killing Derrick. You also get Francis' Clear Wanted Ability.
Cant get a car?
Well if you're going after a car and you want it but it wont stop there is a way too stop it. Press circle and he will hit the car, the driver will come out of the car they will either run of or want too fight.
Car Tip - Avoid Breaking The Rear End
When driving a muscle car (especially the Dukes), the last thing you would want to do is accelerating while turning the vehicle. Doing so will break the rear end, or in other words, make the car spin around. To avoid this, never accelerate when the car is turning. And if you need to accelerate, press the R2 button slowly to avoid sudden acceleration.
Chain Reaction Trophy
Go to Star Junction and steal a bus. Then drive over to a the nearest bridge and position the bus so that it blocks the way. Shoot a gun in the air so the drivers either abandon their car or panic and drive into the bus. For the former, steal their car and drive it yourself into the bus. When there are 10+ cars available, get on top one of them and throw as many grenades around you as possible before you die.
Destroying a Car
When trying to destroy a car, always aim for the rear wheels. This causes the car to burst into flames with a few shots.
Easier last mission
During the last mission, either revenge or deal, when you eliminate all the enemies outside the casino, don't go to the entrance directly. Instead, go around the casino to the back. There will be a ladder which leads to the roof. Climb it, and look for a section of the roof with holes. Go there, drop a few grenades in the holes, and all the enemies should be eliminated, without you being in any danger. After that, just climb down, and enter the casino.
Easy 180 turn when moving
This tip will show you how to do a quick 180 turn when driving forward. It will work on any speed.

Simply hold the handbrake (X/R1) and push the left analogue left or right. When your car is facing the opposite way DO NOT ACCELERATE! Instead REVERSE for a little while then accelerate. Doing this will prevent your vehicle from turning back the right way due to the friction and momentum.
Easy money with multiplayer!!
Go and do multiplayer. And select the gmae where you have to protect petrivic from the cops when he comes america. Its really easy and once your done... 4500 dollars or more!!!!
Extra Armour
Upon entering an Enforcer, you will get a little extra armour.
Faster Reload
When reloading, press up against a wall, car or anything with cover and your gun is reloaded without Niko following through with the actions of reloading it.
Final destination (Easy victory)
For the Faustin mission final destination you can kill the target from a nearby rooftop before anyone knows you are there.

Step 1 - Have micro SMG obtained from earlier mission.
Step 2 - Drive to indicated area on the map in Bohan.
Step 3 - Do not go up stairs to subway station. Instead, go to opposite corner of the location where the stairs are and go into a door. Climb to the rooftop and hold L2 to aim at the red target on the subway terminal below your rooftop vantage point, changing the target by holding right on the stick if auto selecting the guard instead of the target. Fire a few shots from your SMG by pressing R2.
Find the Infernus
There are many ways to get the infernus. All not easy. And never believe theres a certain location for the infernus as you will never find and eventually give up. I know 2 ways of getting the infernus, one way is to participate on brucies races, if brucie gave you a supercar race, then you should find a infernus (80% likely to find one) then steal it (Pressing triangle wont work, so get a gun and shoot the driver then steal it). But this will decrease Brucies like. Or you can go through the story of the game and then Bernie would give you a infernus for a way of saying Thanks! I hope this helped you. And look out for another tip called 'raining infernuses' that you should look at once you done this tip!
Finding the RS Sultan
Go to the third islands mansion at the most northenly point and look behind the garages. The car is in some bushes.It is very fast and very cool!!
Finish Him Trophy
If you are having a problem with this trophy, check if you have any cheats activated. Some cheats (eg. GTA-555-0100) block this trophy, even if the pop up doesn't tell you. Now, go to helitours and fight only the male tourists as they always fight back and are not good fighters.
Fist fighting
When in a fist fight, move away from the opponent while targeting him. After a while, he will come running at you. When he's in range give him a few punches until he's thrown out of range again. Keep on repeating this process to knock him out without getting hit once.
Free girls
When you are in a car you can call some annoying sluts to come in your. To do that you horn at them (there usually found near honekers and triangle club.) and they invite themselves in, just press L1 when they ask. Then when you find a quite area (mostly alleys) it will say something like "press L1 to scroll through her services" you will hae to pay either 20,50 or 70 dollars. Once they are done with Niko, let them out then get off the car and kill them. Theyre you go. Free girls.

Note: After killing the Hoe some guy will say something like "please leeeaaavveee" or "get out of here" or "your dead". Thats when you get your weapon ready and shoot some guy who comes to kill you (he is easy dont worry).
Friends and their special abilities
If your friends like you enough, they will give you their special ability.

Roman: Free taxi service (unlocked at 60% like)

Little Jacob: Discounted weapons (unlocked at 75% like)

Brucie: Free helicopter service (unlocked at 75% like)

Packie: Free car bombs (unlocked at 75% like)

Dwayne: Free back up (unlocked at 60% like)
Get healed AND get your money back!
Basically, when you're low on health and not in immediate danger if you stop to get your cell phone out, call 911 and dial 2 for the paramedics. They'll come to you in an ambulance, heal you, give you half a bar of armour as well - BUT they charge ridiculous amounts, up to $900 and up, depending on how wounded and battered you are.

Simply let the paramedic heal you, and then beat up/kill the poor guy. Pick up your cash and run from the police if they see you doing this. Easy.
Getting Rid Of Your Wanted Level
After escaping the 'catchment' zone (the circle that appears around your last known position - i.e. where the Police saw you last) DO NOT drive on, instead stop right outside of the zone, and wait for the police to stop searching.

If you simply drive on, there is a high chance that you will run into some policemen which will refocus the catchment zone around you. If you wait just outside of this zone, the chance for the police to come there is lower, and after a few seconds (I believe 5 - 10 seconds of waiting) the police will call off their search.
Head Start on Single Player Races
Okay so are you having trouble with the single player street races?
well here's a way to give you a head start.
Drive to the starting line.
But don't drive over the arrow or you can't get the head start.
Instead of letting your car touch down on the arrow, hit the side of one of the other racers cars.
This will trigger the race to start.
Make sure to have some speed before doing so, or you won't be doing anything for yourself.
Happy Gaming
Helpful Tips on "Lure" mission.

Again spoilers,
so do not read further then this if you did not meet a crocked cop with a hat yet!

You do this for Francis McReary.
He wants you to kill a guy with a sniper rifle who might talk to a judge or something.
There are 3 different ways to do this:
Get to the car with the rifle/ammo if you do already have a sniper with you.
Drive it to the location and go up the apartment and get into position.

Method 1: Silent Caller.

If you paid attention to the cutscene,you would have noticed the phone # on top of the telephone.
If you didn't pay attention,I believe the number is 545-555-0122.
He thinks the dude who's calling is his girlfriend/ex...LOL.
Blast him at the back of the head.
Just leave the rooftop(DON'T JUMP OFF!I did and died,so don't) and wait for Francis to call you, Mission Passed, and you get a good 5 grand;)

Method 2: Technical Difficulties.

Like I said above, get to position.
Here you don't really have to pay attention to the cutscene.
The guy is chilling, watching a Burger Shot commercial.
Ironic isn't it?
"The Bleeder" is one of the burgers xD...Ok,moving on.
Blast the TV, and he'll get up and go to the window to see what happened.
Blast him at the top of his scalp/face/forehead, get off, wait for the call, and mission passed;)!

Method 3: Unpaid Cable Bills.

Again, get into position.
You REALLY don't have to pay attention to the cutscene.
Aim a little to the left and you'll see a satellite dish.
Blast it, and the TV will do the static thing.
He'll smash the TV, wondering what happened.
Blast him at the back of the head and get off and wait for the call.
Mission Passed;)!

Hope this helps you make a stylish kill!
Bye guys!
How to get guns and gangs easily
Ok, to get guns easily, take little Jacob out alot and he will tell you that he likes you and will get you guns, and for gangs, do the same
with dwayne. Its better then just goin to buy the guns at a store!
How to get money for a cab ride!
Simply pay a normal taxi where you want to go then, before the taxi drives a way, kill the cab drive, pull him out of the car and recieve your reward <img src="http://i.neoseeker.com/d/icons/smile.gif" border=0 vspace=2 alt="" />
Killing with the Annihilator
When trying to kill someone (in a vehicle or on foot) while flying an Annihilator, rather than shooting the chain guns by pressing square, try to hit them/their vehicle with the blades. It does much more damage plus it's easier to hit the target. The only downside of this is that it will do damage to your chopper as well, but it's still worth doing.
Lazlow is back!!
(This tip is mainly for people who has just started.)

You people who remember Lazlow from chatterbox fm and lcfr. He is back! Just go in a car and find integrity 2.0. Its a new chatterbox with Lazlow!
Motorcycle Tip - Acceleration and Top Speed
To get the best acceleration and top speed with a motorcycle, push the left analogue stick slightly down as your motorcycle accelerates. This applies more pressure to the rear wheel, thus increasing the grip on it. As the acceleration rate drops, start transferring the left analogue stick from down to up. This lowers Niko's head, thus increasing aerodynamics.

Due to the awesome physics engine, this actually works.

NOTE: If you lower Niko's head as the motorcycle accelerates, there will be less grip on the rear wheel, so the rear tyre will start spinning excessively and creates a skid mark as it accelerates.

Conversely, if you lower the left analogue stick when your motorcycle approaches top speed, there will be less aerodynamics, thus more drag will be stopping you from reaching the top speed.
Motorcycle Tip - Braking and Turning
When riding a motorcycle, never brake and turn at the same time. For some reason, motorcycles don't like to turn when trying to stop at the same time. Always, brake first, then turn later.
Multiplayer Tip 1
Always crouch (L3 )when shooting to increase accuracy.
Multiplayer Tip 2
If you get a high wanted level in multiplayer, let another player kill you because if the cops do so, it will cost you $100.
Multiplayer Tip 3
When locking on to a player in multiplayer, adjust the aim to the head. This can kill players much quicker. Only do this if you're at a medium distance though.
Multiplayer Tip 4
When shooting weapons (especially automatics), do not keep the button pressed but rather tap it so that you shoot bursts of 3-5 bullets. This makes the weapon much more accurate thus it kills much quicker.
Need a Lift?
If you do enough things that make Roman happy (the thumbs up icon after completing a task) he will call you and offer you Car Service. You go into your phone, go to Roman's name in the phone book and Car Service is listed. Dial that and Roman will send a car for you.
One Man Army Trophy
Go to Helitours and steal a Helitours Maverick. After you do so, enter COP-555-0150 six times in order to get a six star wanted level. Simply fly around Liberty City for five minutes to get this trophy.
Park two cars outside your safe house on the first island
Usually the game only allows you to park one car here. But there's actually a very simple method of storing two.

If you park a car at one end of the yellow parking zone outside your house, you'll easily have room to fit another behind it. But this is not enough! If you leave or save the game now, the first car you park will disappear. But if you park the first car, then park the second, then get out of the second car, and get in the first. Get out of the first car and leave or save your game, and both cars should still be there.
Perfect Bowling Strikes
To get a perfect bowling strike, take two steps to the left and push the left analogue stick down then up at moderate speed. This will guarantee a strike nearly every time.
Playing Pool
When it's your turn to shoot the ball, do not change the aim. Instead simply proceed to shooting. For some reason the game gives the best aim for you automatically. Although this may make the game too easy and not much fun.
Queb3d Video Game
If you go into the alleyway behind the Pereztroika Night Club and go through the double red doors, you can get into the backstage area. Follow the stairs down past the stage and go into the office. In the corner is the mini game Queb3d video game.
Quick 180 turns
1- From a standstill, press hard in reverse, turning left or right
2- As you start to fly backwards, press hard forward and then turn the opposite way.

(If done correctly you should skid backwards and then keep going without stopping.)

When going forward quickly, hold the e-brake and hard left or right to slide to a skidding stop on the opposite side of the street. Parallel parking the GTA IV way. <img src="http://i.neoseeker.com/d/icons/smile.gif" border=0 vspace=2 alt="" />
Raining Infernuses!
Once you have found the infernus (look for my other tip that will help you) theres a really awesome place to find 16 all parked. Its a glitch and in all GTA's there is a wierd glitch that when you drive a car or motorbike, you will see more of them around. But in IV, the glitch is much more strong. And to create around 16 infernuses just simply take it around your bohan safehouse. And around the northwest of it theres will be ALOT of infernuses. Enjoy!!!!!!
Rare fat bikers!
You can find them near the burgershot in algonquin!
Replenish Health
If your low on health then you should either have something to eat or Sleep on your bed. Note that you don't actually have to save to replenish your health, just pressing when on the bed is enough.
Restart Broken Down Cars
Is your car broken down, and wont start? Well, just dial 911 on your mobile phone, and it will suddenly start up again.

Here is a way to jump from a building and survive!

Get a building (not two high and not two low) and go on top of it. Now Get a rocket launcher or a pertrol bomb and start making a fire near a edge. Now go on top of the fire and burn. While burning quicky jump out the building. You will burn down and when you stop you will stand up while falling down. Here is where you jump on some kinda platform or just stay (for that you must be quite near the surface) and there you have survived. Its really hard and you must be precise and quick!!)
Snow Storm
When the cops storm the building kill them but when you reach the front door that u used to get into the building (its on the cutscene) run striaght out and towards the water and jump off into the water because a jetmax is waiting there. Then getting rid of the three star wanted level is much, much, much easier to lose. Then go to little jacob to finish the mission and find out the dark truth behind one of the characters.
Snow Storm Tip
When doing the mission "The Snow Storm", after picking up the coke, climb onto the table, and jump up and grab the top of the wall, then, climb up onto the wall, and navigate around, the enemy can see you, but its easier to get around them and kill them this way.
song ID number
call 498-555-0100, and lazlow will ID the song you're listening to. (requires being inside a vehicle, or anywhere that plays Background music)
Stop car Instantly
If you bring up your cell phone while driving in a car and select the camera, the car will instantly stop. The is no stopping time. It just stops right there.
Sultan RS location
The sultan RS is a awesome car. It is only found in ONE place. Luckily for you I made the location much easier with a picture! Here it is,

<img src="http://i111.piczo.com/view/2/v/e/n/p/b/b/8/0/e/1/l/img/i251891922_37754_7.jpg" alt="" />

Once you get there. Seacrh the bushes behind two door garage you'll see a car. Its be locked and once Niko finally gets to drive it the alarm will go on so dont go near the cops. This is the only place to find it.

Note: That garage is known to be salvatores. From GTA 3 and GTA liberty city stories.
The highest building stunt
To do this stunt you will need the helicopter to fly.when your in the copter fly to what you think is the highest building and then spawn a NRG-900 (The motor cycle) on top of the building and drive of the building at top speed and watch what happens will you live or will you die? you'll be surprised when you do this so

Good Luck!
The Prison Riot
Okay, you are going to have to be prepared for this so make sure you have armour weapons and skill.Use your helicopter to fly around until you find the prison you will know its the prison because their will be guards at the door most likely police.You can't just walk in so fly in and exit the copter and you'll see guys in orange jump suits some are just sitting and some might be sweeping.They will not do anything to you unless you hit them but the minute you do the guards in the towers will shoot at you kill them and go up the stairs leading to the top of the tower and look through your sniper and you will see most of the inmates escaping.This is the time for you to get out of there to because the police will just keep coming and coming so just spawn another helicopter and get the hell out of there beacause you won't last forever.
The Snow storm Mission

This mission, from Elizabeta is one of the harder missions in the game, and also one of the memorable ones. Lots of guys are having trouble with this, so heres a simple strategy that will make your day:

When you get to the building, after the short cut scene, DO NOT kill any thugs, as they will be alerted to your presence otherwise. Instead, got to the right, past the opening in the wall in front of you, and then climb the low wall. Now, there are two openings in the fence. One to the left, which you would have gone through if you had decided to go in from the front, and another, to the right, where no ganster can see you. Go through it, and move around the perimeter of the building, till you come to a ladder. Climb it, and go through the window.

If you did this right, none of the gangsters will have noticed you, and there will be a single gangster, who faces away from you. There will be another gangster in the distance, also facing away, and the rest will be on the ground floor. Scope out the ground floor, and note the locations of the red barrels. Take out the one in front of you, and then use your semi to make the barrels explode, killing the ones in your vicinity. Drop down through the hole in front of you, and take out the 2 or so enmies there. Grab the health, rush to the room with the coke, and activate the next part of the mission.

The cops will have a firefight with the remaining gangsters, so I hope you didn't take the time to kill all the gangsters. Select a corridor devoid of gunfire, select a shotgun and run through it, taking out any police only if they obstruct you. Whn you get to the large room, there will probably be only 1 or so cop remaining, thanks to the gangsters, so kill him/them. Go to the main entrance, and sprint to the bobcat. Now, I heard that if you go to the docks on the right, there will be a motorboat for you to escape, but it didn't work out for me. Anyways, just take the bobcat out to the main road, try to lose sight of the cops, and take cover under a bridge. Once the wanted level is gone, go to LJ, and watch the fantastic twist of the plot.
Transport tip - Get where you need to go quickly, and free of charge.
If you are at one end of Liberty City, and you need to get to the other end within one 'game' hour, whistle for a taxi by pressing L1. After telling the driver where your destination is, press X to skip the journey, thus wasting a very small amount of time whereas if you decide to drive yourself to your destination, chances are you won't make it in time.

Depending on how far away your destination is, the taxi charge can actually be quite a large amount. Simply let the driver stop at your destination, get out, and then press /\ (triangle) as if you want to steal the taxi. As you're pulling the driver out of the cab, tilt the left analog stick away from the taxi, meaning you don't get in. Now kill/ Beat up the driver until your money appears on the floor.

Take your money, and leave before the cops inevitably show up <img src="http://i.neoseeker.com/d/icons/bigsmile.gif" border=0 vspace=2 alt="" />
Turning off the engine in a car
If you want to hop out the car but don't want to leave the lights and engine on, Hold Triangle down instead of just tapping it. Niko will get out and the car won't be running.
Turning on the spot
If you are stuck in a confined space with your vehicle and you need to turn in another direction, hold L2+R2 until your car starts doing a burnout. Then, turn the left analogue stick to the desired direction.
Undress for success (fast version)
I used the Turismo and a SMG for this.

Park on the side opposite of the entrance to the club. There is a back exit for deliveries, only working in this mission. Walk around the front and listen in on the three conversations that identify the three targets. Kill the guard and the target in the back room. (the other two targets should try and flee out the front door.)

Now run out the back exit and into your waiting Turismo. Drive around to the front of the club and push the side of the escaping car so that the driver runs into a wall or post. You can hold the gas to keep pressure on the car, pinning your victim. Backing up to place pressure on the other end of the car can be used to maneuver your victim into a locked position. (Good trick to use anytime you are chasing anyone in a fast and yet physically weak car. It does very little damage to the vehicle and stops them almost all of the time. The cops use this trick when they get very mad or by accident when there are many of them.)

Once you have your prey, hold the L1 button and aim at the car windows. IF they get out you can run them over and or get out and hose them down with bullets.

Alternatively you could get a large vehicle like a truck and block the exit. But I haven't tested that.
Use cover and the cops can't see you!
Ever been running and there are cops in front of you, but they haven't spotted you yet? Well use cover, and unless the cops come to the side you're on, they can't see you, so you're more hidden then just standing behind cover!
What freinds do for Niko.
When you take your mates out, they will give you something in return.

Roman- free taxi rides (the cab guy is really pissed about that)
Dwayne- Call him to get you some back up!
Lil jacob- Cheap guns!
Packie- car bomb
Brucie- Helicopter pickup and drop

Also when you have girls they can give you stuff.

Lawchick (Kiki) - Clear wanted
Sobohoe (carmen) - Over the phone health boost (This only works the day after you take carmen, this is also known to not work in missions)
Liberated women - Cheap clothes!

Heart of Liberty City

First, you'll have to have access to Happiness Island. Once you're able to go there legally, find the Helicopter Tours (which is directly east of Happiness Island) and steal a helicopter. Fly to Happiness Island and over the Statue of Liberty, then jump out of the helicopter at the statue's feet. You should land on the topmost tier of the statue, which is basically a square platform with a door in the center of each side. Run around the platform until you see a door with a plaque on either side of it that reads, "No Hidden Content Here." It may seem like you cannot go through the door, but you can-- it doesn't open, you simply walk THROUGH the door. Inside, you'll find an empty room with a tall ladder. Climb it, and when you reach the top, look up; there is a gigantic beating heart, held in place by chains.
Jimmy returns (Apparently)
When in the Elizibeta mission cutscene where they are dancing, look to the left and back and you should see an old Jimmy Hopkins, the hero from Rockstar's Bully (Canis Canem Edit) It is said you can also find Grandpa Jimmy around town. Keep your eyes peeled!
Red Dead Revolver
When you are watching TV and are watching Ricky Gervais, right after that there will be a commercial for a show called Spittoon. It is actually scenes from the game Red Dead Revolver, an old Rockstar game for the PS2.
See the inside of Niko's head.
Sometimes If your in a house, or a small space, where Niko's head is nearly touching the roof, you can position the camera so it will show the inside of Niko's head.
