Avoid Being Caught by Cops
When you're being chased by the cops, make sure that they've got high Damage (if you have high damage too, you can still do this), then make sure that they're not too far behind you. Now, reverse into a wall/lamp post/tree/(anything!). They should hit your front and your damage will go up to the top and the cops will then say "we've lost him" and then you can get out of your car.
submitted by Mehmet (

Escaping police
Requirements: A quantity of skill. When being chased drive on the wrong side of the road weaving between the on-coming traffic. The closer you get to said traffic the more likely it is that the police cars will hit it. Also when approaching a police car from behind hit it as soon as it makes a move to the left or the right, this willl cause it to spin and more often than not leave it facing the wrong direction.

You will get stuck again and here funny noises of invisible cars go by. Then restart the game. (I don't mean reset the PS1!) Then go exactly back to Chicago with the same car and there will be NOBODY will be in the city...anywhere!

2 Bugs

The secret car is on the far left of Havana, in a walled off area on that turny road. The whole thing outside of that walled off place is grass, hills, and trees. Get out of your car and walk towards the corner wall where the highway wall meets the ocean wall. You will be able to see inside of the tunnel! There won't be a corner exactly, you'll get close enough to see the tunnel through the water.

In the neighborhood that you start out in Havana, north of the starting point, there is a block that has a road going through it, the cutting it into two smaller blocks. The north one is green, and the south one is regular colored. Go on the road bordering the north end of the green (which is a park.) There will be an alley on the left. Enter this alley. There is a sandhill here. Floor it and go over the middle of the sandhill. Get out of your car while you're in the air, and your car will go all the way to the buildings you would've run into, since the alley isn't exactly straight. Before your car hits the building, some parts of the ground near it will turn black, and your car will fall. It will never come back, either.

I tried doing this a second time in one Take A Ride, but it never worked. It has a capacity of one car before this invisible hole closes up.

Can't get the cops off your tail? Simple! Find a place to come to a complete stop and get out of your vehicle. They absolutely cannot harm you if you're on foot. Run away somewhere until the sirens stop. Steal another car and you're off!

Glitch on larger vehicles

When you see a larger vehicle (i.e.Fire truck,van,shool bus,tour bus) coming down a large slope or coming up, while on foot run right in to the front of it and hit the triangle it will put you in the car. You can combine this with the pressing triangle in mid air while the car flys if a larger vehicle was right next to you when you jumped out you can quicly press triangle again and jump in it kinda interesting.

Gold Coast Bug: The Exit

I read about a bug in Yergin's FAQ that happened in Gold Coast in Chicago. Look at his FAQ for the details of this bug, where one part of the wall isn't solid.

I don't think anyone knows how to exit this out of bounds area. You can't go back through the same part of the wall, so you're stuck. I've found a part that you can get back onto the road. While you're out of bounds, go north along the wall that let you go out of bounds. Keep going, past that green highway sign where the onramp starts. Go against the onramp wall as you're still going forward. Soon, when the hole under the onramp is about as big as you, you'll go on top of the onramp automatically, which is back in game bounds! You have to be almost facing the wall so you're against it enough to be taken up to the onramp.

I don't know if anyone else knows about this. It seems like very few people know about it.

Pop A wheelie in Havanna

To do this, you must first unlock the Mini Cooper or "Mini". After you do that, go to "Take a ride" in the menu. The Mini should be a selection. Choose it. Drive around and find a wall. Drive head on into it at full speed. When you hit the wall keep the acellerator pushed down. If done correctly,(after hitting the wall) the nose of the car should shoot up in the air and your car should go into awheelie and drive down the road. The harder you hit, the longer you will wheelie. The max I have got so far is 5 seconds.

Sit on a chair!

First, Take a Ride and go in chicago. Then, turn back at the start then find somewhere that has seats. When you find a seat, get out of your car. If they are people sitting in the chairs, scare them off. Then, go to the SIDE of a seat and press triangle, now you are sitting in a chair!

Tip: If you want to get a better view, use the camra rotater buttons (L1 and R1).

Tip 2: Do not press triangle at the back of the seat, otherwise, your character might go far and sit on nothing.

Solid Water

Many people know about the ferry in Havana, right off the coast. That little road that ends at a boat, and it is part of the mission after Find the Clue. Well, I'll stop with the blah blah.

There is an easy way to go in the water. Right on that ramp going onto the ferry, go perpendicular to the road, and aim for the water. You'll float and the water will act like land. If you stay very close to that barrier, all of that strip of "water" will be solid as long as that barrier wall is next to it. Be careful, because that's the only solid water by the ferry. You can't go along that barrier wall that is along the highway.

This is a pretty cool glitch, but remember, don't fall into the un-solid water!
