Get 45 kills in vigilante mode to unlock a police bribe that is available at your hideout.
Get 100 fares in cab mode to unlock faster taxis available at Borgnine in Harwood in Portland.
Complete the Mafia missions in story mode to unlock the Buggy. Return to Portland and go to the Diablo parking lot (where the mission phone is located) between 19:00to 24:00 to find the same Buggy glimpsed in Joey's garage from the Mafia mission. It will appear in the same location and change color each time.
The following items are always available at your safe house, and regenerate. The numbers indicated the number of hidden packages needed for that item.
60: Molotov cocktail
80: Sniper Rifle
90: M16 or Flamethrower
100: Rocket Launcher.
Easy "infinite" run:
To continue to run at a fast pace without fatigue, just tap X instead of holding it down. This helps when trying to give your character "exercise" so that he can run for longer periods of time as well.
Look out for ramps and high slopes. If you drive up them fast enough, you can jump certain obstacles such as buildings and truck trailers. If successful, you can get a "Insane Bonus" message, resulting in a lot of money.
When riding around in Island 2, look for a women dressed as a sprinter/jogger. Get out, then attack and kill her. After doing so, collect the thousands of dollars she leaves on the floor. Note: Becareful, you might alert the cops.
Staunton Island: Secret race-type mission:
Go to the Super Saver Grocery Store in Newport. Enter the car in the parking lot to get a secret race-type mission, where you must go through check points.
Staunton Island: Yardie Lobo car:
Drive around your garage (around the block or elsewhere), and find a red car with a white top and panther colored seats. This is a gang car, called the Yardie Lobo. Once you find it, press R3 and move the Analog-stick Up, Down, Left, Right, or diagonally to move it. Press L3 to make the car push up and remain that way.
Press the L3 continuously to jump with your hydraulics.
Staunton Island: Hidden package:
There is a hidden package on the hospital roof on Stauton Island. The package is on the corner of the building directly across from the stairs. To get the package, park an ambulance parallel, right next to the building where the package is located. Then, park any "van" perpendicular to the ambulance. Then, park any "car" next to the van. Finally, just jump onto each vehicle to get to the roof. The hospital parking lot contains plenty of vehicles to choose from.
Portland: Fastest car:
In Portland, go to the Capital Autos shop. Take a big car and ram it into the glass on the store to break it. Inside is the fastest car in the game, which resembles a Shelby.
Portland: Easy money:
In Portland, near Toni's place, is an alley with a parked van marked "Toyz". Get in the van to play a rampage mini-game involving an RC car with a bomb attached to it. You get $1000 for each Mafia car you destroy. This game can be played as many times as needed.
Get a decent car, such as the cab or something that is not too heavy. Drive from your hideout in Portland to the end of the road to your left. Turn around, and drive on the grass under the monorail tracks. On the left section of grass will be a jump made out of concrete. Jump off it, and try to land on the monorail tracks, or at least on the stairway so you are facing the same way that you were driving. Drive in-between the tracks, as you do not want to take a chance at getting knocked off by the monorail. You will soon see a glowing circle on your right, which is the flamethrower. Drive over to it, and park next to the ledge-type object below it. Jump onto the hood of the car and take the flamethrower. Save the game at this point, as it may be difficult to get it again.
Portland: Molotov cocktails:
Go to 8-Ball's auto yard, and take the path leading to the garage. Before you enter the garage is a path leading left. Take this path, then go straight until you find train tracks. Turn right following, the train tracks. This leads into a tunnel. Keep going until you find a group of bums. Run over and kill them. They will leave Molotov cocktails and a hidden package.
Portland: Drive on elevated train tracks:
In the highest area of Portland is elevated train station. The path leading up to the tracks is large enough to fit a car.
Two Faced Tanner mission: Killing Tanner
Take the Yakuza Stinger from Asuka, and find 8-Ball's auto shop on your map. Take the Stinger to 8-Ball's and rig it. Next, drive to Kenji's casino and pull in front of Tanner's car (the stationary Esperato). Press Circle, quickly get out of the Stinger and speed run to the blue circle. If timed correctly, Tanner will run out, pull open his door, and attempt to enter.
Bomb Da Base mission: Kill guards easily:
Use the following trick to kill the guards on the ship easily, and allow 8-Ball to blow it up. Run toward the ship, then turn right after the building. Keep running all the way until the trails. You can find some drugs there. Take them, and run back along the building -- it is better to run with the fist and the X tapped. Climb the stairs on the left (at the end of the building). Position yourself on the roof facing the ship. Now you have a lot of time to aim at and kill the guards, until the effect of the drugs fades away.
The Exchange mission: Defeating the Colombian Cartel:
To have an easier fight against the Colombian Cartel in the last mission, you must collect every hidden package. Once you leave the mansion in Shoreside Vale you can return to your hideout in Wichita Gardens and have all the ammunition you need. Then, just use rockets on the Cartel Cruiser barricades and the Barracks OL trucks. Use a strong car for cover and use the sniper rifle to pick off any Cartel guards. Then, move to the roof. After all the guards on the ground are gone, move up the stairs -- but not all the way. Snipe the two guards covering Maria and the one behind the smoke stack.
If you manage to get a tank (by getting the Army after you and having the soldiers leave the tank), it is possible to save it in your garage. Unfortunately, a tank will only fit in your Stauton Island hideout due to the size of the door. Tanks are not indestructible but they can take about 20 to 30 minutes worth of punishment. Tanks can also flip over, but this is not easy to do. The tank shoots grenade rounds, of which you have an unlimited amount. You can also move the tank's turret with the Right Analog-stick. Note: The tank can also be used in the Vigilante missions.
To get a tank, raise your wanted level to 6. Next, find a way to get it back to level 0, no matter what. Then, go to Phil's Weapon Shop at the very tip of Staunton Island. You should be able to enter the tank there.
To get the tank to go extremely fast, turn your turret to face directly back, then fire repeatedly. Watch your shots -- if you hit any cars the cops will chase you. This is especially useful for the Vigilante missions.
Get the Uzi and enter any car. Press R2 + Circle or L2 + Circle and your character will shoot the Uzi out either side of the car.
Stealing police cars:
To easily steal police cars, press Triangle at the drivers side door. Then, as the policeman gets out, go to the passenger side and hop in.
Use exploding cars:
If your car is on fire, get out. It is about to explode, but this is also a good thing. if you need a big bomb and you do not have the money for Eightball, smash your car into things and use it as a bomb on wheels when it starts to burn.
In some police stations are Enforcers (police trucks). If you go in them, you will get 100 armor.
Park your car(s) in the garage at the save point. Exit, then go in to save. You can either save your game or cancel. Either way, your car(s) will be repaired.
While in Portland and Staunton Island, if your car is on the brink of fire, or you want it to be as new as the day you stole it, drive to your hideout. Pull your car into the garage and get out. Leave the garage so that the door can close, then run back in and take out your newly repaired car. You do not have to save the game for the car to repair. This trick will not work in Shoreside Vale -- you will have to save the game for an easy repair.
Free paint jobs:
Go to pay and spray once. Pay the $1,000 for the new engine and paint job. Then, immediately drive back in an get a new paint job, free of charge. This can be done as many times as needed until you get the desired paint job.
Go by Toni's place to find an alleyway where an Uzi is located. Go near the mob car on the ledge in the other nearby alley -- you can go between two buildings and find an AK47-like rifle and some armor.
Go to Chinatown and look for a Triad member (men with blue uniforms). Run them down with a car until a gun appears (sometimes it is a bat). Alternately, you can get out of your car and hit them with a bat, but you might be spotted by another Triad member and get shot.
When you see the Rockstar billboard, there are usually some items nearby. On the three islands, hidden packages are usually found near the billboards. For every ten hidden packages you find, you gain access to a new weapon located at your hideout, free of charge.
When you are "on drugs" (when the small pill icon appears), get into a fist fight or have a shoot out with someone. The fight will have a Matrix-type effect.
Car jack any vehicle and drive up to a prostitute walking the streets. Stop and let her approach the car, after a few seconds of talking, she will get in. Drive to a remote area where there are not any cops around (a good place is in your hideout). Stop the car, but do not get out. After about two seconds, the car will start rocking back and forth. You will recover approximately 40 to 50 points of health. When it is over, she will exit the car and walk away, but not before she charges you a fee. At this point you can beat her up and take back the money you just paid her. Note: The prostitute will fight back when you try to take your money back. If for any reason you both have to exit the car before it starts rocking, you will still be charged a fee (beat her up to take it back). You cannot do this with the same prostitute twice in one night -- you can however, pick up another prostitute and recover more health. Even though the maximum amount of health points is 100 when you start the game, it increases to 125 after the encounter and remains that way.
When you pick up a prostitute and as soon as the car stops shaking, before the girl gets out, step on the gas slightly. She will not get out because the car is moving. If you stop right after, the car will start rocking again. This is a good way to save time when you are trying to get health back.
Go to the red light area in the Portland Industrial District and drive very slowly next to a prostitute. They will walk up to your car, bend over, and eventually go in.
The easiest pick up a prostitute is to drive a fine car. While taxis and cop cars do not attract them easily, cars such as Diablos and others will attract them more often.
Steal ether a police, ambulance, or fire truck (easier to steal). Turn on the sirens and all cars on the road will pull over and get out of your way. This will not bring your wanted level up. Try staying in the center of the road -- if you go to the side of the intersection, cars will either hit you or cause a road block. Note: If it does not work the first time, keep on pressing the button.
avoid police chases:
After stealing police cars, you are relentlessly pursued by the police until you are captured or injured. In order to get around this, steal the police car (try smashing them until they get out to arrest you, and then jump in their car). Take the stolen police car to your garage (the condition does not matter), and save the game. When you return with the stolen police car later (from your garage), it will be viewed as a normal car by the police, but will still be able to do the Vigilante mission.
First, find badges. The best places to look are in the alleys and parking lots. If being chased in a car, and you are not about to explode, just keep running, and try to not kill anyone. Sometimes, if you drive around enough in harsh conditions, the cops will just stop chasing you. This only happens if you have one or two stars though. If you have around four or more stars, quickly find some badges. The cops are reckless around then, and will do anything to get you busted, or most likely killed, even if it means accidentally killing a few witnesses.
Get back to your hideout, save then game, then reload. The cops will be gone. This works no matter how high your wanted level has become.
More cars in garage:
When you are at your hideout, you are able to park any vehicle for later use. In the second island you are allowed two cars in the garage, but the following trick will let you park as many as many as you can fit. After you drive up to the garage door and the game states that you cannot park any more cars, get out and walk up to the door. The garage will open. As soon as it does, immediately get back into your car and drive it in as it closes again. You have to do this quickly, but once it is in the game will save the car. Also, try stacking cars on top of one another which will increase garage space.
