[Glitch]Fall Through Building

I just discovered a glitch while just playing around with a six star wanted level. I was on top of the safe house you get from playboy, just trying to see if I can spawn vehicles on top of the roof. I found out that if you go to the edge of the roof and spawn something it will stay in the air, it won't fall unless you shoot it or something. The second glitch I found was I spawned an FBI buffalo on top of the roof with no problems except when I tried to get in I instantly feel through the building and I thought I was gonna die, but I just ended up on the street behind the safe house with no health damage.

Don't pay on the Pay Toll on a motorcycle/moped

Ok, if you are on a motorcycle or moped and coming to the pay toll, you can get through without paying. Well you go to the toll but stop when you see it. There is two openings on both sides you can slip through without paying. This is perfect for escaping cops when you are getting chased, but if you go to fast you might fall off so don't go full speed through there.

Gangs

There are various gangs located around Liberty City. The easiest way to spot a gang member is that they wont back down if you walk into them and will often start saying things like "Whats your problem !". They will eventually start a fight and may have other members join in.

If you aim a weapon at a gang member they will often draw a weapon themselves and other members will likely help their fellow gang mate out.

Get the 'One Man Army' Ahievement without breaking a sweat

Go to the L shaped peninsula on Algoquin Island, the one that is called helitours. Now you need to get a six star wanted level, I reccomend any of the following stratgies to get six stars: 1. fly over Alderney Island (the Island on the far left on your map) if you haven't yet unlocked Alderney Island. 2.Call 911, Kill the cops that come and kill whatever else you need to to get 6 stars. 3. Fly over to the airport and land on the runway, jump out of the chopper to get a four star wanted level, kill whatever you need to to get 2 more stars, then fly away. If you took the 2nd option, after going on your spree, grab a helocopter. Nomatter what way you chose to do it, you should now have six stars and a helocopter, now all you need to do is fly around in broad circles around the group of islands for 5 minutes and there's your achievement!

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.

If someone calls you up and wants to go somewhere e.g darts, strip club. If you say no there like of you decreases but say yes and then look in your phonebook for their name, click on their name and press cancel plans this means you can do what you want without losing likeness. Helps with Liberty (5) achievement.

Need a Quick Gun?

Are you early in the game, and you need a piece to deal with a particularly tough mission? No problem! At the fair, you can find a pistol tucked away at the Go-Cart track. It's on the outer rim, tucked away near the left building. Hopefully this will get you past that tough mission.

Go to Rotterdam Tower (The tallest building in the city) go to the front door, step into the blue arrow and then press RB to go to the top. Then whip out your cellphone and dial 2675550150 once, then go back into your phone and open the menu and scroll to the bottom where it should say "cheats", open that up then press "COP-WANTED UP" five times and you are at six stars. now just relax up there and do whatever for five minutes (the police choppers can't reach you and as far as I know, all 34 times I've hidden out up there, they don't use the elevator)(a fun thing to do is kill the terified civillians running around up there while you wait to get the achievement)

Glitches

Back to top

Disappearing Helicopter and Character!!!

For this glitch you will need to have one of the health cheats. this glitch also works for the stem-off games, The Ballad of Gay Tony, and The Lost and Damned.
Some of you may have got with playing the main storyline to the GTA IV games, and will probably have decided to explore beyond the bounds of Liberty City. As you get further out, you may begin to see whales/dolphins, according to other reports. But if you go out far enough (I recommend using a helicopter for this, if you use a boat if will take literally forever) then for no apparent reason your health will begin to go down. Strange right? Well it gets weirder. If you use the health cheat at this point to get your health back up to full, then you will pass beyond the edge of the GTA IV game world, and both you and your helicopter will disappear. if at this point you jump out, you will fall and land as you usually but you can't see the character! if you swim this tripped out effect is heightened, as you can see the wave moving around like it would while you were swimming in L.C, but invisible.
I hope this glitch helps to ease your boredom when playing Grand Theft Auto : IV

Spinning Ambulance

If you get an Ambulance and roll it on its side you can push up or down on the Analogue Stick it will start spinning ! This can be done in either single player or multiplayer.

Walk On Water

Go to the navy yard and climb up then ladder you see, until you can get off then walk to the side nearest the ship and jump off. You should reach the ship, if not try again. When you get on the ship, walk between the spaces in the middle of the containers and you might fall down into the sea near the big block to the front of the ship. When you do this you should be standing on the water.
