Easter Eggs[edit]

  • Change The Moon Size: Whenever you see the moon you can use either of the two sniper rifles to shoot at it to change it's size. There are 7 different sizes.
  • Easter Egg, Easter Egg: Go to the West island and the helipad on the news station. It has a VCN Mavrick on it. Look east and see a greyish building. Look at the non-realistic window on the left of it. All you have to do is start on the opposite side of the Heliport and run to the other and jump through the window. You will be in a small room with a podium and an easter egg on it, complete with Happy Easter sign.
  • See 8-ball, Keji Maria, and el Burro from GTA 3: Across the street from the Pole Position club there is a video game shop where you can see pictures of El burro ,Kenji,Maria and 8-ball all from GTA 3.


  • Bike Morphing: There is a glitch in the game that makes it possible to morph with a bike. When this glitch has been done, it is impossible to get hit off your bike by another vehicle, or anyhting else. You can also pull off flips due to this glitch, as well as gaining other big insane bonuses.

To activate this glitch, all you really need to do is jump on a bike at the same time as picking up a clothes pickup. First off:

  1. Get to a Clothes Pickup
  2. Place your bike in the middle of the clothes pickup, then position your bike so that the clothes pickup is sticking further out than the other side.
  3. Get on the side that has the clothes pickup not sticking out as much, and jump on the bike. If done right, you should morph. You should still be standing while the bike is in between you. When you accelerate the bike, you will run while the bike goes forward.

There are also other ways to do this, like drop kicking on the bike. It might be easier if you devise your own strategy. This glitch is hard to get done, so it will take a lot of practice. Also, PCJ 600s are the easiest for this.

One good place to morph is at the Clothes Pickup on top of the Hyman Condo. You may also want to use the North Point Mall, since there is two pickups there, and you can go back and forth if you fail to make this glitch work.

Now you will be able to do flips and crash into other objects with out falling of your bike. This glitch will stay activated until the bike catches on fire and eventually blows up. To deactivate this glitch, just simply get off, shoot a weapon, or make a heavy turn or brake.

  • Double a Weapon's Ammunition: First, get the gun that you want to double the ammo of. Then, find any rampage. Take out the gun you want to double the ammo in. Then, start the rampage. Don't do anything, and let the timer run out. When you fail, your gun will have twice as much ammunition than when you started.
  • Drive any Vehicle during Dirt Ring: On the day of the dirt ring event drive the vehicle of your choice to the stadium. Drive your way up to in front of the stadium doors where the driver's door is facing the entrance. Drive your vehicle close enough to the door where it will barely exit from the driver's side. Exit the vehicle, activate the race and push the enter car button simultaneously. If done correctly when the mission starts you should be in your vehicle where you are usually standing. You will have unlimited time to play around. Works great with other bikes and the Caddy.
  • Drive Blown Up Car: Make sure you know how to do the blow up all cars for this one, and be able to do it EXTREMELY fast. Walk up to a car with a person in it and steal it. During the animation in which tommy pulls the person out and gets in, enter the blow up all cars cheat. The car will explode and you will be unhurt, and the car will be flaming. Enter the health cheat to stop the car from burning, and you are now driving around in a 3 wheeled burnt car. This also works in GTA 3.
  • Easy Hotring Race Win: You will need a Mini Gun with lots of ammo to exploit this glitch. When the race begins drive your Hotring into the black garage that the cars spawn from. Drive the car to the back of the garage on the right side right against the wall. This will stop any cars spawning throughout the race. Now back onto the track and take out your Mini Gun. Face the oncoming traffic and use its auto aim feature to blow up every car that comes your way. When the cars stop coming. Go back into the garage, hop back into you car and finish the race, opponent free.
  • Get to Mainland at Start of Game: Grab a PCJ, take the unique jump to get into the film studio. In the back, where the Skimmer would be, there is a Packer. Position the packer facing the wall just to the right of the water tower. Then drive your PCJ at full speed up the packer's ramp. You will jump over the wall and land on the bridge on main island side. Find $1000 for the skumhole shack and you can play all you want without ever starting a mission. (It will take a few tries to get the Packer's positioning correct.)

Note: Once on the second island, you can use the VCN Helicopter to get anywhere you want to go. Just walk through the front door of the VCN building.

  • Jumping over Fences: When driving a vehicle during game play pull up along side a fence or short wall with driverside against the fence and press triangle to exit and you will be on the other side of the fence.This is great for getting away from the police or gangs.
  • Lighthouse Glitch: If you are wanted by the cops, go into the lighthouse. There is a glitch that makes the cops unable to come up there.
  • Lock on with an Assault Rifle: There is away to lock on with the assault rifles in this game. (Rugers and M4s.) First cause a fire, possibly by throwing molotov cocktails nearby. Next, run into the fire so you are in flames. Now, press the lock on button and your Ruger will lock on to your enemies.
  • More Cars In Garages: To get more cars or bikes in your garages simply park a vehicle so it jams the door (being half in the garage, half out) and drive more vehicles in.

Warning: You may or may not lose some of your cars

  • Street Vantage Point: While in the air turn the car on it's side so that the drivers side points upand then get out. If you did it right the car will float in the air with you standing on it allowing you to shoot people from it. Note: If the tire is shot out or if the car explodes the car will fall from the sky. Also some times you can't get back in the car.
  • get over 10 000 ammo to get unlimted ammo.
  • to hijack a boat: take a boat(preferably a sail boat) from either the boat docks or the boatyard asset,or a sea plane, then go find a desired boat, stop your boat in front of it. get out of your boat then jump

into the other boat. the driver should panic and jump into the water( if you want to steal a predator(police boat) make sure you have a gun to shoot the police officer).


  • Bulletproof Sabre Tubro: Go to the mission where you must race Hillary. From the start back up or turn around and drive for 10 seconds on the clock and make a good road block. Then wait for him to appear and use the sniper rifle to shoot him in the head. If your lucky the door will be open. If it is locked you can push it to one of your garages then let the garage close. If the car is already unlocked drive it to a garage first, get out and let the garage close to permanently unlock the doors.
  • Car Breakers: Use the Change Clothes code (Right, Right, Left, Up, L1, L2, Left, Up, Down, Right) until you get to some big guys. It doesn't matter who, but they must be big (fat guy-motorcycle guy-etc.) and walk/run up to any vehicle and now you can break the car with your bare fists! This secret is best used with locked cars, you can break off the door.
  • Drive Inside Buildings: Once you get Diaz's mansion, get in a car and drive it towards the door. At the last moment, bail out. Your car will go inside while you stay outside. Now go in the mansion and you will be able to drive around inside.
  • Easy Money: Find a coach and park it next to a bus stop but don't get out of the vehicle. Every now and then pedestrians will get into the coach and you'll receive $5 when they enter the vehicle. You don't have to take them anywhere and there's no limit as to how many passengers the coach can hold, so you can go do something else while Tommy earns more money. This is very useful particularly in the earlier stages of the game.
  • Super Stoppie Trick: With this code you can pull a limitless stoppie. To do so, steal a Faggio. Then get on a straight road, and then gain a good amount of speed. Stick yourself in the stoppie position (Push left analog stick up and hold down Square and R1), and when you have a good stoppie, immediately release Square and R1 and hold down X. You should be able to pull a limitless stoppie, provided you can keep the Faggio straight.
  • Indestructible Car Collection: On the first island, buy all three properties that have garages BEFORE performing the Guardian Angels mission. Then, when beginning that mission, gun down Diaz when the Haitians show up at the drop. Run back down the stairs and bag Diaz' white car (the "Admiral"). This car is collision-proof and bulletproof but *can* flip over and explode. Drive the car to one of your garages and save the game so you have it available whenever you want (i.e. "Waste the Wife"). Do this two more times so you have three Admirals parked in your various garages, and then go back and complete the Guardian Angels mission. It's handy to have indestructible cars now and then, although I recommend moving one over to Hyman Condo so it's on the other island in case you need it.
