Note: The "Drive on water" and "Pimping missions completed" codes are not available in the PC version of the game.
Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "handling.cfg" file in the "\rockstar games\gta san andreas\data" directory. You will find a list of all the vehicles and a description of each multiplier factor. You can modify the acceleration, top speed, mass, monetary value, transmission, gravity center, and much more.
Successfully complete the Burning Desire mission where you rescue Denise. A red two player free roam icon will now appear on Denise's porch near the door. The icon will appear there when she is home and will go on a date. Note: If both enter a car, the passenger will have free aim with a machine gun. Do not try to kill Denise, because you will never be able to date her again or play in two player mode at her house. Additionally, once you get your girlfriend, take her on a date. After you drop her off, there will be a rotating icon of two people directly in front of the door. Walk into it. It will tell you to push any button on the controller two. Do so to start two player mode, involving CJ and his girlfriend in a free roam.
For more fun in two player mode, start the two player mission. Then, enable the "Spawn Jetpack" code and remove the Jetpack. Then, have player two get the Jetpack. Enable the Jetpack code again, then have player one get it. Both players can now fly around and do the two player missions this way.
Note: You must have a second controller inserted in port two. In the Ganton area, start from Grove Street where the Johnson house is located. Drive under the first bridge and continue to go straight. Next, youshould drive over some railroad tracks. After this, you should drive under a second bridge. Take the first right turn you see. It should be a dead end. Drive until your car hits the grass, then look to your left. You should see an open doorway. Walk through it and you should see a small "2 Player" icon. Press any button on controller two to begin. Additionally, when you are on the missions from Big Smoke go north of his house. You should see some wrecked buildings. Go through them to find a two player free roam icon.
Not far from the garage you own and beyond the construction area is a large building with a parking lot on either side, on the right side (north according to the map) is a two player icon. Multiple people types can be selected by the second player (three women and three men). Unlike those from the dating missions, this two player location will never go away.
Starting at the abandoned airstrip, go west and north onto the road. There is a blackish-brown building on the south side of the road with a large balcony going all the way around it. Follow the balcony half way around and you will find a two player mode icon.
Start at your safe house in El Quebrados. Get on the street and follow it a short distance south until it turns left around the corner of a building. On the south side of this building will be a two player free roam icon.
Go to the General Store in Dilmore. There is a two player icon there. The second player will be able to change their character.
Successfully complete level 2 of the Freight Train missions to get $50,000 and free train rides.
Steal a fire truck and start the fire truck missions. Successfully complete level 12 of the fire truck missions to make CJ fireproof.
Bring a fire truck from another location into Angel Pine, then start the mission. This should be easier than doing it in Los Santos, San Fierro, the desert, or Las Venturas. When you do it at this location, and you are stuck on a cliff that you cannot get up (for example, if the burning car is on the freeway), take your time by taking the long way. You should only use this method if you have at least three minutes or more time remaining. Note: All fires will not always appear in Angel Pine, as they may also happen in Whetstone or other nearby places. Although this sounds difficult, there are not that many roads near the Angel Pine area which actually makes it easier to complete. If the fire truck gets severely damaged, enable the "Health" code.
Successfully complete all missions assigned by Mike Toreno to get a flamethrower, minigun, rocket launcher, and homing rocket launcher to appear at his cabin in Tierra Robada.
Steal an ambulance and start the paramedic missions. Successfully complete level 12 of the paramedic missions to get a health limit of 150.
Go to Angel Pine, which is located in southeast area of the main map. In the northeast part of Angel Pine is a medical building with an Ambulance next to it. Get in it and start the missions. All the victims will appear in the city, which is very small. The farthest person will only be about ten seconds away from the drop off point. You can complete the missions in less then ten minutes by doing this. Also, the cops do not appear very often, allowing your wanted level to remain low. Additionally, do the Paramedic mission in the Angel Pine area. Start the missions. All injured people that must be taken to the hospital will be in the crowded town. Unlike the fire truck missions if done in this town, this mission has all the people in one place. Once you complete this mission, you will your health increased to 150. This is a also very good reward because you can jump from the highest place in the game without dying from the fall. Note: If you have the parachute in your inventory, you will die.
Steal the pimp convertible in the car wash parking lot near the Pay N' Spray and start the pimping missions. Successfully complete level 10 of the pimping missions to get money from prostitutes instead of paying them.
Successfully complete level 7 of the Quarry missions to get the Hunter Quarry asset and Quarry Mission time-trials.
Steal a taxi and start the taxi missions. After a total of 50 successful fares, you will unlock hydraulics and nitrous on all taxi-class vehicles. After using nitrous, you must wait awhile between shots. However, that time decreases as your driving skill increases.
Steal a truck and start the truck missions. Successfully complete level 8 of the trucking missions to unlock RS Haul as a property.
Successfully complete level 5 of the Valet Parking missions in downtown San Fierro to get the San Fierro Valet Parking as an asset property.
Steal any policy vehicle and start the vigilante missions. Successfully complete level 12 of the vigilante missions to get an armor limit of 150.
Use the Rhino to complete the vigilante missions easier. Additionally, start the mission, put the vehicle in your garage, and exit so that the door closes. Enable the "Destroy all cars" code. The criminals will be killed. Run back to the garage, hop in the car, and repeat. This is also a good way to quickly gain more money and status points.
Get an FBI Rancher and drive onto the Julius Thruway in Las Venturas. Start Vigilante mode and begin driving around the highway. Just stay on the highway, and you will notice that the criminals start dying for no apparent reason. Just drive for about twenty minutes to get the 150 armor award easily.
Enable the "Spawn Rhino tank" code and use it for the vigilante missions. When you reach level 12, your armor will increase to 150. Each time you kill a group of criminals, you will get money (on level 20 and over you will be winning $50,000 or more). If you get a wanted level, do not cheat to lower it. As police ram you, they will explode and your respect will increase. All the driving that you will do increases your driving skill somewhat.
Collect all fifty horseshoes in Las Venturas to get a M4, MP5, combat shotgun, and satchel charges to appear at the Four Dragons Casino.
Collect all fifty oysters to increase your sex appeal and lung capacity. Note: To find the oysters faster, get a Sea Sparrow (which can land on water). You can find one by the Sherman Dam.
Get first place in all races at the four racing locations across San Andreas (marked with a checkered flag on the map/radar) to win $1,000,000.
Take all fifty snapshots in San Fierro to get a sniper rifle, Micro SMG, shotgun, and grenades to appear at your San Fierro garage.
Spray all one hundred hidden tags in Los Santos to get an AK-47, Tec-9, Sawn-off shotgun, and Molotov cocktails to appear inside your house on Grove Street.
Successfully complete the game with a 100% game completion. CJ will get a stats boost, extra money, and a Rhino and Hydra will be delivered to CJ's house on Grove Street.
At about 22:00, go to a gym and work out, maxing yourself. After you have worked out enough for the day, wait another minute until the time is 0:00. Max yourself out for that day then go home. Save two or three times and you can repeat this process.
To get your character maxed out in the muscle and stamina attributes, do the following. Go the gym near the Johnson house. Work out until you are told that it is enough for one day. Go home (right down the block), save the game to advance to the next day. Return to the gym and you can work out again. You can now max out your muscle and stamina in less then a half hour.
Achieve a high wanted level and go into a restaurant. Shoot everyone with the weapon that you want to raise in rank. If you walk around and wait, police will spawn, but will not shoot you. Police can raise your weapon skill faster than pedestrians. This works best in Burger Shot because of the wide area that you can walk around in. Continue until you reach Hitman status.
Use the following trick in front of any safe house. Use the gun you want to get up to Hitman status to repeatedly shoot a car until it explodes. Then, go to the next car. Repeat this until you reach Hitman status for that weapon. Watch out for the police. You can shoot them, then keep shooting the cars. When you are almost dead, enter your safe house and save the game. Your health will be restored and wanted level removed.
Get lots of bullets for the guns that you want Hitman or Gangster status for. Go to Tierra Robada. Look around at the north of the island to find a little house. Stay in there and enable the "Increase wanted level" code three times. Stay in the cabin and wait for the police to approach. When they enter the house, kill them.
To attain Hitman level quicker, select your desired weapon and go to a Pay 'N' Spray. Park your vehicle directly next to the Pay 'N' Spray. Exit the vehicle and repeatedly shoot people, cars, and cops. When your wanted level is raised to two stars or above, run to your vehicle and drive into the Pay 'N' Spray to cancel it. If your vehicle is not damaged, the respray is free. Wait for the wanted stars to stop flashing, then start shooting people again.
Go into a police station and find a room with one entry point, and something that you can hide behind (like a desk). Take out your weapon. You should now have a two star wanted level. Shoot any cop who comes through the door. Every cop you shoot makes your gun skill go up by about five. Do this until you either die, run out of bullets, or enable the "Lower wanted level" code.
Go to San Fierro and pass the tests at the driving school. Additionally, find a tractor or a slow moving car. Drive the roads without going as fast as you can (move slowly). This will take awhile, but will increase your driving skills.
Repeatedly swim underwater to increase your lung capacity and your underwater skill.
Dive underwater, and once your breath is out, you will start losing health. If you want to stay underwater, keep enabling the "Armor, health, money, and street creds" code when your health is low. You will be able to remain underwater, and max your Lung Capacity attribute easily.
Go to any pier over any body of water. Swim under the pier and stay in one position. This will immensely raise your muscle, stamina, and lung capacity in just under a minute. Stay under longer for better results.
If you get stuck in the water, enable the "Spawn Hotring Racer" then "Spawn Jetpack" codes. It will not appear until you are on a non watery surface. Quickly jump on the car. It may be a far ride, but it is better than swimming.
Enable the "Wanted level never increases" code. Go to the shaded areas of the game and they will become unlocked. If you go to a safe house and save the game, all areas will be unlocked from now on. However, in order not to be wanted when you go back into these areas, you must enable the "Wanted level never increases" code again, but you will be free to roam about.
Get a plane and fly all the way to either the southeast, southwest, northeast, or northwest of the map where the ocean is found. Keep flying for thirty minutes in that direction, then jump out of the plane. Do not open the parachute and intentionally drown. When you arrive at the hospital, check your map. You will see that there are enormous amounts of new territories in San Fierro, Las Venturas, and some in Las Santos. You can take over these territories, and they only have one wave.
To get all of the map showing in the starting area of the game, get on the freeway and continue going until you cannot go further. Then, pause the game and the entire bottom right half of the map should be marked as explored.
To gain respect, stay in your neighborhood and get a wanted star, then kill all the police that arrives. Once you reach a four star wanted level (and if you killed enough police), you will gain some respect. Additionally, completing missions is not the only way to earn respect. By spraying other gang's tags, you will also earn a bit, and by taking over another gang's area you will earn a lot. Note: You must have completed some missions before you can take over areas. You can see on the radar witch areas you have taken over, and which areas the enemy gangs own. Your own territory is marked with green, and your enemies are yellow or purple.
Your respect is made up of the following factors:
- Running Respect (see below): 40%
- Mission Progress: 36%
- Territory Under Control: 6%
- Money: 6%
- Fitness: 4%
- Clothes: 4%
- Girlfriend Progress: 4%
- Mission Progress: 36%
Your Running Respect is changed by the following factors:
- Territory gained: +30%
- Killing a gang member: +.5%
- Killing a dealer: +.005%
- Killing a member of your gang: -.005%
- A member of your gang is killed: -2%
- Territory lost: -3%
- Killing a gang member: +.5%
Your respect affects the number of gang members that you can recruit:
- Above 1%: 2
- Above 10%: 3
- Above 20%: 4
- Above 40%: 5
- Above 60%: 6
- Above 80%: 7
- Above 10%: 3
Walk into a bar and beat up all the customers with a bat, nightstick, or pool cue. More customers spawn and your wanted level will not rise. No one pulls out a gun, and your maximum health will increase after a number of fights. Beating up the person next to the pool tables gets you a pool cue, and every once in awhile a customer will spill a few hundred dollars.
Find a save point that is close to a betting shop. The one in the Montgomery are is ideal because it is near to the save point where you have to do the four missions for Catalina. Save your game, then go to the betting shop and bet all your money on a horse. It takes awhile to enter the numbers, but is worth it because you can make a huge amount of cash (especially if you bet on horses with odds of 10/1, 11/1, 12/1, etc.). It takes roughly three to four minutes to bet the maximum amount of money, which is $9,999,995. You will not win every time. When you lose, reload your last saved game. It is possible to get $250,000,000 by betting your winnings of $30,000 to $700.000 to $2,000,000 to the maximum bet.
Enable the "Deadly vehicle" and "Flying cars" codes. When you are up in the air, fly down to the ground and hit it to get money for a unique trick. The higher you go and hit the ground, the more money you can make. You can also deactivate the code while in the air and hit the ground to make a lot of money.
Enable the "Flying cars" code. Fly around for a few seconds, then touch the ground. You will get money for insane stunts.
Shoot at the black part of a wheel. If you shoot at the rim it will not work. Keep on shooting until the skill bar is all the way up for the desired weapon.
It is recommended that you spray all 100 tags, as it is easier for ammunition and early on missions. Get a cop car (preferably a car, OT truck, rancher, etc.). Save it in the Johnson family garage; save the game if desired. Get a large amount of sawn-off shotgun ammunition. If all 100 tags were sprayed, it is available in Johnson kitchen. Go to the garage. Get as far away from the car as possible without letting the garage door close. Then crouch, aim for the grill of the police car, and shoot. Every few shots (or every time the car catches fire), you should have more weapon skill. It will eventually upgrade about every minute. When it catches on fire, let the garage repair the car and come back. This does not work as well at getting Hitman on the other weapons.
From the Johnson house in the Ganton area, go straight until you are in the front yard of the house opposite of yours. Turn right, and go behind it by going between that house and the one next to it. Go in the backyard until you are in the corner. You should see a pistol. Take it, then get back to Grove Street. If you see man, usually in black, that is standing there with his arms crossed, shoot him. He usually carries about $2,000 or more and a pistol, because he is a drug dealer. Repeat this to get easy money. Kill him quickly before he shoots you. It is possible to get $50,000 in one day by doing this.
Upon exiting the Johnson house in Grove Street, walk straight toward the house opposite of yours, which is the one that sometimes has the BMX bike in the front yard, until you are in the grass. Go to your right between that house and the one next to it. Walk toward the corner and get the pistol. Go back to Grove Street and find a drug dealer. He is dressed in black with his hands crossed down at his hips. You will know he is a drug dealer because if you face him, he will try to do business. You will get a pop-up display in the top-right part of your screen on how to respond to him, even though you cannot actually buy anything. If you shoot and kill him, he drops $2,000 dollars or more, and a gun just like that one you picked up. Note: He will shoot back -- try to get a headshot. There is another drug dealer that is wearing a white hooded sweatshirt that does the same thing. He can usually be found up in the northeast part of Los Santos. You can find these dealers all over Los Santos in the areas littered with gangs.
Go to the building with the parachute. When you get to the top, spawn a Caddy. Get in and drive slowly towards the edge of the building, then just fall off. You will begin to flip slowly. However, if you nudge the edge of the building, the Caddy will spin and flip like crazy. When you hit the ground, you will get a very large insane stunt bonus.
Find the Inside Track Betting building in the Downtown area. Bet the maximum amount on the horse with the worst odds. If you lose, reload the game and try again. When you win, it will be a substantial amount.
Go to the Pig Pen Strip Club. You can jump on the big stage with the srtipper. Stand directly in front of her, and people will throw $100 to her each time, which you can collect. Be very careful not to touch her, or the guards will start shooting at you. Note: This cheat takes awhile -- eat before you go.
Get a weapon, then stand outside the your house in the Ganton area. Shoot your homies (wearing green). Some of them will drop a lot of money. Pick it up, and if you have a wanted level go inside and save the game. Repeat this to get a large amount of money.
This trick requires maximum bike skill for both motorcycles and a regular bike. Go to the highest building in Los Santos, the circular one, and jump off using either the motorcycle or bike. While you are in mid-air, you can spin for a little bit or try to do a back flip. Stay on the bikes until you land and you will receive an insane stunt bonus for over $200.
Enable the "Kinky theme" code and enter the Ganton area with a nice car. Drive up the alley were the burglar truck is located. Park there and within seconds prostitutes will approach. Press Left to accept their offer, then get out of your car and kill them when they are done. You will get more money than paid.
Go to the Ganton Gym in Los Santos. Go to the bicycle and start at level 1. Work your way up to level 10. After awhile it will say that you have worked to your limit and to return. Keep pedaling and your stamina will start to increase.
Use the following trick to get a lot of weapons, increase your muscle, increase your stamina, and get a "Hitman" rating with any weapon. After the initial mission, go to the Verona beach area (on the south part of the map near the ocean). There is a free open gym here. Use it to increase your muscle and stamina. when you need to eat, there is a free hot dog stand down the path east of the gym, or just save the game at your house. To get "Hitman" status with any gun, find the weapon of your choice and shoot people or cars. Try going to any parking lot and shooting cars. It is easier and they respawn if you ride a short distance away and return. You can get as much money as desired doing the fire truck missions, then going to the off track betting after getting at least $10,000. Bet 10% of your money on the last horse until you win. If you lose too much money, reload your game and return. Repeat this process until you have a good amount of money.
Drive around and hit Ballas. When they are dead, pick up their guns then get back in your car and find more. This will get you a lot of weapons very fast.
This trick requires a controller in port two. To get an easy Hitman rating for either the 9 mm pistol or shotgun, go to the Los Santos Police Department. Note the two player icon across the street. Quickly enter the Police Department. Run and ignore any cops shooting at you and get the armor in the locker room. It is the first room on your right. There is an available pistol in the room on the right, at the far end of the hall. Proceed to dispose of the police using your pistol. If you need ammunition, the cops will drop a gun after you kill them. Your weapon skill will quickly raise as you kill the swarms of police that come after you. Continue shooting until your armor level becomes low or is gone. Then, run to the far end of the police station hall, down the stairs, and into the holding cells. In the middle cell is more armor. Use it and continue your massacre until your armor is once again depleted. Next, quickly run out of the door and across the street to the two player icon. Start two player mode. Simply kill the second player and your wanted level will be gone and your health will be refilled. Repeat this to gain Hitman status or simply gain ammunition. Note: Hitman status with the pistols will allow duel wielding, faster firing, improved accuracy, lock-on range increased and faster strafing. There is also a shotgun hidden in the police station in the room on your left as you enter, then to the room at the right at the end of that one. The shotgun may not respawn as soon as you enter, but in at least 60 seconds one should appear. You can use this available shotgun to reach Hitman status with. Note: Hitman status with the shotgun only gives you improved accuracy, move while firing, faster firing rate and lock-on range increased -- not duel wielding. Duel wielding can only be achieved with the sawed-off shotgun.
To raise your weapon skills quickly, enter a dance club, such as the "Alhambra" in the Idlewood area. Begin shooting people with the weapon of your choice. Doing so during the afternoon or night hours (12:00 to 04:00) greatly increases the amount of people that respawn in the club. Since so many people spawn, you have a virtually limitless amount of people to "train" with. Doing so however, raises your wanted level greatly. Enable the "Lower wanted level" code or know where the police bribes are, as you will need them.
Go to the actual beach part of the Verona Beach area. Start shooting with the desired gun. The cops will arrive after awhile, but you can make them go away or just kill them for more. Keep doing this until the desired gun is at Hitman level. It is possible to get four weapons up to Hitman level in about an hour.
Walk out from CJ's house and make sure there a car in his garage. Use any weapon to shoot the car in the garage until it catches on fire. Walk away and let the garage close Then, open it and repeat the steps. You can do this with any weapon to get an easy Hitman level.
Go into the bar near CJ's house in the Ganton area. Kill everyone there and try to get a two or three star wanted level. Start killing the police that come through the door. When no one remains, turn around and look. They should be there.
Go to your house in Grove Street. Start randomly killing people until you have two star wanted level. Kill all the cops with any desired weapon. Make sure you have armor on. When you have low health, save the game, then repeat.
Before you enter a race, enable the "Cars fly away" code. During the countdown, start entering the "Pedestrians riot" code, but do not press the final button until they take off. Run over all the racers and ram their cars.
Go to the airport in San Fierro and enable the "Spawn Jetpack" code. Enter the Shamel jet and enable the "Speed up time" code. Fly it until a message appears in the corner. Fly it for about five or ten more minutes and you will have a pilot license without going to pilot school. Note: Make sure you save the game.
Buy lots of ammunition for the Tec-9 which costs about $300. When you have enough, buy one SMG. The game will transfer all your Tec-9 ammunition into your SMG, saving you thousands of dollars. Note: This does not work for the pistols, rifles, or thrown weapons.
Get a car that can be used for the pimping missions. Go to a Pay N' Spray. When the door is closing, start the pimping missions. Then, deactivate the missions after the door has closed and is re-opening. The door will open again, giving you a free spray. You can repeat this as many times as desired.
Get a fast car or a motorcycle. Either shoot the vehicle or bang it up real good. When it is on fire, jump out. This technique is also good for taking over hoods quickly and easily.
When stuck at the top of a cliff or mountain and you need to go to the bottom, do not bother going the long way around to get down safely. Instead, edge yourself to the end of the cliff/mountain and slowly but surely you will slide down the side and land safely at the bottom.
If you want to lose weight quickly, enable the "Speed up time" code.
Take any motorcycle or bike to the entrance of the tallest building in Los Santos. You will be taken to the roof. Note: This only works with this building and two-wheeled vehicles.
Go to one of the basketball courts that have full courts and a chain link fence round them. One of the hoops will have a basketball. Walk up to the basketball and start playing. While playing basketball, start the Basketball Challenge mini-game. A red marker will appear on the court. Run to the red marker and shoot the ball. If you make the shot, the red marker will move to a new spot on the court. The goal of the mini-game is to sink as many shots as you can before time runs out. Each shot you make adds a few seconds on to the clock. When time runs out, CJ will automatically resume playing basketball. Your highest score will be recorded and shown the next time you play the Basketball Challenge mini-game.
After completing the Taggin Up Turf mission, you can go beside Sweet's house. There will be a basketball court with a basketball in the middle. Walk up to it and start playing basketball. Note: You can only play by yourself.
Go out of CJ's neighborhood in Ganton. At night, you will see a bar with beer bottles flashing on top of it. It is next to the bridge. Go inside the bar, and there will be a man next to the pool table. Walk up to him and play a game of pool. You can also bet money on the game. There are also arcade games you can play in the bar.
Near the Downtown and Mulholland Intersection areas (under the highway, next to the big parking lot), is a building called Inside Track Betting (with red/pink/blue posters). The entrance is just in front of it, and you can play a horse race game. You first bet on one of the horse to win, then the amount of money. Afterwards you can see the race.
When you find a vending machine that serves chips, zoom in on it with a pistol or rifle. It is blurry, but you can tell that the chips inside the machine are real-life brands. Some chips that can be easily identified are Doritos, Lay's Potato Chips, and Munchos, to name a few.
Walk up to a fence and either punch it or cut it with a chainsaw.
To climb a tree, find a ledge that will allow you to jump to the branches at the top of a tree. If you hit them correctly, CJ should grab onto the branches and allow you to pull him up. There is an easily accessible one just outside of Glen Park Hospital to practice with.
To quickly blow up cars, shoot the gas tank. This is useful when killing a lot of people at once.
Use a sniper rifle to shoot the moon to make it expand, then shrink in size.
If you eat too much in a restaurant you will vomit on the floor and the cashier will laugh at you. After this happens, you cannot eat again for a while.
When you are fat, CJ will say different phrases. For example, when you are fighting he will say "I got weight on my side," or "I may be big, but I ain't slow". The downside to being fat is that when your body fat meter gets full, you run the risk of having a heart attack. This only happens in very rare circumstances. You will return to the nearest hospital. Also, if you have no muscle stat, or very little, you may not be able to climb high walls or "super sprint". When fat, CJ will waddle around like a penguin, and if you look closely (this happens with no shirt) the fat on his body will wobble.
Have the camera active as your current weapon, then target a member of your own gang. Give them the camera and they will snap a picture of CJ.
Listen to Radio Los Santos and K-DST. On Radio Los Santos, at times between songs, Julio G. (station DJ) will make fun of the Playback FM DJ, saying "Playback FM has some cool records, but the DJ is wack," and Tommy "Nightmare" Smith, (K-DST DJ) will make fun of the Radio X DJ, usually just before the song "Running Down a Dream". He will say, "You know, I can't bear that chick on Radio X, or is it Rock X, Rock...listen sweetheart, get over it."
After you obtain Denise as you girlfriend after the Burning Desire mission, listen to Radio Los Santos. At times between songs, Julio G. (the DJ) will have a shout-out from Denise to you, and at the end he criticizes the shout out by saying "I got a shout out from Denise in Ganton who says she misses her boy desperately. And I quote, desperately. Hey, you know, this isn't Lonely Hearts, this is Radio Los Santos."
Allow the game to idle for a few minutes. The HUD will disappear and the game will zoom in on other nearby people instead of CJ.
Depending on your wanted level, different law enforcement vehicles, officers, and weapons will be used against you:
One star: Police officers on foot, in cars, and HPV1000s (police bikes) will go after you. They have 9mms and nightsticks. If you do not have a gun out, they will try to beat you with their nightsticks. If you have a gun out, they will shoot.
Two stars: Police officers in cars and HPV1000s will come after you. They will have 9mms and nightsticks, although they will not use their nightsticks. They will shoot at you no matter what. If you are in a car, cops will drive faster after you.
Three stars: Police officers in cars will go after you. They will have the same weapons. Police choppers are now involved and shoot you from their guns. Police cars will go fast enough to be able to keep up with you and roadblocks will be in place at times, with officers shooting 9mms at your car.
Four stars: Cops in cars and SWAT officers will come after you in Enforcers (SWAT vans). SWAT officers will now rappel from the police choppers. SWAT officers are now in roadblocks and SWAT officers will have Micro SMGs. If you are in an aircraft, a Hydra will go after you to shoot you down.
Five stars: FBI agents will go after you with FBI Ranchers. Most authorities going after you will be the FBI; there will be less cop and SWAT cars. The police chopper still goes after you, and the FBI will replace the SWAT men in roadblocks. FBI agents carry SMGs.
Six stars: Military soldiers will go after you in Rhinos (tanks) and Barracks trucks. They will replace the FBI in roadblocks. The army will carry M4s.
To save a gang member or bodyguard when you turn off the game, go to your safe house. Go to your garage, run in the garage with your bodyguards. Run out without your bodyguards, and then save the game.
An easy way to take over territories is to find a high place like a roof top. First, kill a few gang members to start the war, then get onto a roof. When you are up there, they will still shoot at you, but will not have accurate aim and will miss frequently.
Note: It is recommended that the "Air Strip" missions be completed first. To easily take over territories, go to the airstrip and take the Jetpack. Go to any enemy territory and start a gang war by killing some enemy gang members. Fly and land on any building roof you can easily see incoming enemy gang members. Kill all gang members from up there. By doing this, you can easily hold all enemy territories. Be patient when killing gang members, and try to stay inside the war zone. The distance between the airstrip and enemy territories is long, but this is the easiest way to quickly and safely hold enemy gang territories. All territories can be held by using the Jetpack, but only one by one.
If your gang turf is under attack, go to a save point and save the game. When it is done saving, your turf will no longer be under attack and it will still be yours. Additionally, when your hood is under attack, find a police car or motorcycle, fire truck, ambulance, or taxi. Get in and start the vehicle's missions. Then, exit the missions and your hood will be safe.
You can do this trick in any race mission with the checkered flag on your map. Bring a gang member with you. You can even bring three if the race is with a four door car. Walk into the red mission circle. Select a race and when it starts and counts down, you will see your gang member spawn to the street and walk towards your car. The races will start, and you must wait a moment before he gets in your car.
Enable the "Manual weapon drive bys in cars" code and run out of bullets in your Uzi, Tec-9, or Micro SMG. Get out of your vehicle, then select the weapon of your choice (except grenades and rocket launchers). Get back into the vehicle and enable any "Weapons" code. The crosshairs are back on and you can shoot that weapon.
Note: This cannot be done with more than two weapons. Get a melee weapon (baseball bat, dildo, or a police nightstick) and an ordinary shotgun. If you have more than those two weapons this trick cannot be done. Switch to your melee weapon. Walk up to a pedestrian and hit them, then immediately switch to your shotgun. If done correctly, CJ should hit the pedestrian with the shotgun as if he were using it as a melee weapon.
Go to the 24-7 store located near the Conference Center area. Outside the front parking lot will be a bike. Get on the bike and you will automatically begin the courier missions, which require you to deliver packages thought Los Santos by throwing them through rings at the destination. After completing three levels you will acquire the 24-7 store. Use the bike that was in front of to collect up to $2,000.
Enter the Ganton Gym and spawn the Jetpack. Go over the arrow, out but do not go out. Fly up through a blank tile. An all-black area will appear. Use the thermal goggles to see all the people you have killed. You can also see an illegal tattoo parlor, a tornado, a hidden city in your garage in San Fierro, a tornadom and other things. Do not lose height or you will have to kill yourself when you land.
The spray paint is not only meant for spraying tags. It also can be used as a weapon. Aim the spray paint in the direction of a pedestrian and they will lean forward, coughing.
There is a spray can located in the upstairs bedroom of CJ's house in the Ganton area.
Go in back of CJ's house. Climb onto the wall and walk over to the his house. Jump onto it then climb to the raised part of his house. Walk towards the back of it, and you will see that there is a building connected to it. Walk onto that building and you will see a can of paint.
Enter the police station in the Pershing Square area of Los Santos. Walk around inside the police station to find the shower/bathroom. In there you will find a large purple dildo that can be used to hit people. There is also a PR-24 (nightstick) in the police station as well. You can pick up the dildo and the PR-24 without anything happening, but when you take the shotgun you will get two stars on your wanted meter.
Go to the small town of Dillimore near Red County. Find the police station with the garage opened up outside. Unequip your weapon and enter the police station by walking over the entrance marker. Once inside, proceed into the hallway ahead of you and take the first right into a locker room. In this locker room will be body armor and a night stick. Keep walking behind the locker room, and there will be an opening in the wall with a large walk-in shower. Proceed into the shower and take an immediate right. You will see a pink dildo spinning. You can pick this up as your melee weapon and begin dildo-bashing people.
Go behind to the Vinewood sign. Search behind the "V" to find a cane that can be used as a melee weapon.
Follow the train tracks south towards the Ocean Docks area. Along the way you should see some tire piles. Look around the stacks and you will find a chainsaw.
When you first start the game, go to the underpass two doors from your house in the Ganton area. There are brass knuckles in the grass.
Go into Ryder's back yard (to the right of your house) in the Ganton area. There is a shovel next to the back of the house.
Find the 8-Ball shop near where you did the mission where you met Ceaser. Directly behind the 8-Ball shop is a fence. Climb over it and you will find the katana.
Go behind Big Smoke's house. In the corner will be a gun.
Walk to the street from CJ's house. Walk between the house across from CJ's and go to the right. You will see a hand gun.
When you rob the pizzeria with Ryder in the beginning of the game, instead of running to the car as soon as you get out of there, punch out the clerk for the shotgun. Note: This works better if you get the brass knuckles found underneath the over pass near your hood.
Jump on top of Big Smoke's house, then jump on roofs towards CJ's house. On top of one will be a machine gun.
Go in back of CJ's house. Climb onto the wall and walk over to the his house. Jump onto it then climb to the raised part of his house. When you are on his roof, jump onto the house next to his then jump onto Sweet's house to obtain a machine gun.
There is an Uzi under the bridge in the waterway to the right of your house in the Ganton area when you exit it.
Go to the Ocean Docks area in Los Santos. Look for railroad tracks and follow them south until they lead to a building with boxcars. The complex can only be entered by jumping the wall, going through the boxcar warehouse, or by an opening to the right of the warehouse. The boxcar warehouse has a sawed-off shotgun (you will need a car to get it) in one of the cars, a plank bridge that leads to body armor, and gas grenades located at the back exit. A short distance away from the back exit, you will see an entrance to another warehouse. This one is full of crates. Go through the crates to find stairs. Behind the stairs is an AK-47. Go up the stairs to find more body armor.
Reach the "Hitman" rank in a weapon skill to be able to wield two of that weapon at once. To increase your weapon skill, practice at the shooting range or use that weapon frequently. You can dual wield pistols, the sawed off shotgun, Uzi, and Tek.
In two player mode, enable any weapon code one time. Waste all the ammunition in your SMG gun. Then, hold the weapon you want to have automatic fire (Desert Eagle recommended). Get in the passenger side of a car while the other player drives. While holding the Desert Eagle in the car, enable the same weapon code again. You can now shoot the gun automatically.
If you fire a gun out of a car in two player mode with no ammunition, it will still fire but no bullets will actually be shot out.
Enable the "Weapons (tier 3)" code, then select the bombs which are blown up by a detonator. Throw one of them at someone, and it should stick to them. You can now blow them up like a suicide bomber.
Go inside the gym and defeat its owner to learn boxing style attacks.
Go inside the gym and defeat its owner to learn kick boxing style attacks.
Walk behind the Mullholland safe house to the pool. Face the side that has five windows. Walk into the one closest to the corner. Go to the area of that window that is away from the corner. Slowly go in there and lean to the right. Unless you go too slow and lead an officer in there, you will be safe. The police can see you, but cannot hurt you, even when you have the maximum amount of stars on your wanted meter.
Start two player mode and get on a skyscraper. Have one player on the edge of the building and the other player directly behind him. Have the player on the edge jump off, and immediately afterwards have the other in the same spot jump off. As soon as one player lands, the second one will follow and land on him. You will now notice that the second player will have almost full health, using the first player as a cushion.
Go into a Burger Shot restaurant and kill everyone. Then, leave and immediately go back in. Kill everyone until you have four stars on your wanted meter. Cops will enter the shop. If you start shooting, all the cops will act like the people in the shop, and curl up scared. The cops will not shoot you. If you kill them, more will just keep appearing in the same locations.
Get a three star level level while in a club. Three or four cops will appear and start shooting.
In order to hack inside and win free money, meet ''C'' (Kendl's girlfriend) and complete one mission. As they have the casinos ready for you, kill all guards and be done.
Get a BMX and ride it to the most northern safe house in the Mulholland area near the Vinewood sign. Note: If you are interested in buying it, the cost is $120,000. Notice that the building is in a "L" shape. Go to the inner corner of the "L", next to the pool. Ride into the walls and you will fall through one of them. You will go into a glitched area. Perform lots of rotations before you land back near the safe house to get an extreme stunt bonus.
Using the sniper rifle, shoot the moon at night. It will begin to shrink. After it gets to a certain size, it will begin to grow again.
Max out your health bar and get full armor. Go to a high building, such as the one in the Downtown area of Los Santos. Get on the roof and jump off without a parachute in your inventory. When you hit the ground, you will lose most of your life, but still have a small amount remaining. Note: If you have a parachute in your inventory, you will die when you hit the ground.
If you accidentally fall off a very high building, enable the "Spawn parachute" code. Open the parachute and you will drift safely down to the ground.
Go to the top of Mt. Chiliad with a parachute. If you cannot find one, there is one on top of the mountain near a Camper and a Journey. Equip your parachute and jump on the mountain bike. You should trigger the downhill race. Then, jump off the edge with the bike, but before you jump off and deploy your parachute. You should spawn back on top with the bike, but with your parachute still deployed.
Occasionally at the helipad that is guarded with a police garage not far from it, if you go into the garage when the helicopter is present, you will find another helicopter at the bottom floor of the garage.
Shoot some people and/or police to get a least a three start wanted level. Then, enable the "Spawn Jetpack" code and fly up. Wait for a helicopter to arrive. When it does, try to land on top of it. When you do, the blades will not chop you up.
Get a Monster truck and drive down by the docks in Los Santos until you see a Packer. Line up the Monster with the back end of the Packer and drive up the ramp. This should send the Packer up in the air and do backflips.
Go to Los Santos International Airport, and use the "Spawn Jetpack" code to reach the top of the communications tower. Once on the top, there is a small circular platform with a thin platform around it, with just enough room to stand on. Stand on it, and make sure it is the border around the very top platform. Enable the "Spawn Rhino tank" code. If done correctly, the tank will spawn and immediately ricochet off the top and do multiple spins and somersaults in the air before finally hitting the ground below. This can be very funny if done correctly.
Make a gang, with however many members as desired. Then, go inside your house and press Up to call for your gang to follow. They cannot go inside the house. Save the game. When you are done, they will be standing in the kitchen. You can shoot them, punch them, or walk through them with nothing happening to them. They will talk to you, but they do not move and nothing hurts them.
Find a cab driving around with a passenger. Note: This may also work with other cars and your gang members. Take the car and drive it into water (best done at the Glen Park area in Los Santos). Get out of the car as it is driving into the water and go ashore, so you can see the passenger trying to swim. After a short while he or she will be dead, still are trying to swim. Aim at the person and the target will appear black, indicating that the person is dead. Fire at the car's gas tank to make it explode and send the person flying ashore. They will now run around for awhile, then act like a normal person. However, they will be invincible and will still be targeted black.
Wield a knife (tier 2 weapon), and walk up behind one of your fellow gang members. Target him and press Up to recruit him into your posse. Before he can turn around, cut his throat. Note that after you do so, he will fall to the ground quite differently than the other members of the population. As soon as he hits the ground, he will rise back up "from the dead".
Notice that when you use your flamethrower and are aimed at the floor, you create a small flame or a few that expire in awhile. When they begin to arise, the fire truck arrives and extinguishes the fire. To do this glitch, eat something beforehand to prevent hunger. This may take some time. Do a fire line with your flamethrower of at least four flames horizontally with no cops nearby (or they begin to chase you). Keep watching the fire, centering by using the camera view, trying not to move CJ only if necessary. If the fire truck arrives to extinguish the fire, repeat this until you get a whirlwind of fire of a decent size. When you get it, it cannot be extinguished. If you keep it centered with the camera view and watch, after awhile the fire truck leaves the fire alone. The fire physics are strange, but if you move Right slowly and walk just a little bit, you can aim the fire. Keep doing this and you can move it in a certain direction. Do not worry if the flames are close to you, they do not cause damage until you move CJ to the flames. If there are pedestrians walking to the flames ,they will not suffer any damage, even though they do not runaway .However, vehicles can take damage. To make them explode they must be stopped for a certain period of time. Try it on traffic lights or when another vehicle is blocking the path. This is particularly useful on highways where cars travel at high speed. There are multiple wrecks and you can wait to watch them all explode . You will not get a wanted level for doing this.
Activate the night vision goggles and play any type of arcade game (They Came From Uranus, etc.). When you exit the arcade game, CJ will still be wearing the goggles, but their effect is not there.
Buy some remote explosives at Ammu-Nation, then steal a car. Get out of the car and throw one at the drivers door, then open the door. The explosive will stay in the same place, and the door will go through it.
Go into Ammu-Nation. There will be a red circle to go into shooting practice. Get close to that circle, then throw over twenty remote explosives at that door. Without pressing the remote, step in the red circle. You will go to the target practice. Complete round 1, then quit. When your out of target practice, notice there are no explosives by the door, but you still have the remote. Press the remote. and there will be no explosion.
Go to Flint County. There should be a road to follow. Drive on it, and you will see a wall that leads off the to the side. If you drive up and down that wall, you should fall through the ground. You may have to do it a few times. You must hug the wall for this glitch to occur. Additionally, go to your safe house in Prickle Pine. Enable the "CJ jumps higher" code. Enter the safe house. Turn towards the entrance and jump up. You should go over the wall and fall into blackness until you land in a field of grey. In front of you should be an incomplete version of the are where you saved Denise. Buildings will be missing, but you can physically touch them. You should also see white letters that read "Ganton", "North Rock", and "Downtown". Stand in front of it and mark the Four Dragons Casino. Then, enable the "Spawn Jetpack" code and fly it toward the casino. You should eventually see an armor pickup, a uzi pickup, a pistol pickup, and a money pickup that contains $15,000 at most. You should also see four white doors, but they have the wall physics around them.
Go to the bottom of the water at the end of the island in Flint county. Enable the "Maximum lung capacity" code, then swim down to where you see two rocks and a large starfish. Swim behind the biggest rock. Sooner or later, you will be able to walk on the bottom of the ocean. You can spawn vehicles and fire weapons. Note: Do not get out of the water or try to fly a plane or you will have to do this all over. Also, if you go too close to shore or out too far, you will respawn on the nearest island. This glitch may take a lot of time to do and requires patience.
When in CJ's home, get the spray paint can from his bedroom. Go to his lobby and spray in front off his mirror at a certain distance. You will not see the spray in the mirror when spraying.
Have a gun capable of doing drive-bys and go on a date with Denise riding in a motorcycle. If she asks if you want some "coffee", say "Yes". When you are done and get back on your bike, you will not have the gun out. This will fix itself when you get off the bike.
There is a property to buy directly above Madd Dogg's mansion in the Mullholland area. You do not have to have buy it; just go there. In the back is a waterless pool and a wall on the east side. Walk up against it and you will fall through an invisible wall and continue falling until you reappear back on the ground. You can use the Jetpack to fly around in blue hell.
Go to the building where the mission "End Of The Line" took place, where you killed Big Smoke. Note: This will not work after you complete the mission -- you should be playing a new file to do this. Get a car and ram the wall in the front. You should either break the wall and go through or break the wall and get pushed back from the impact. Then, drive in and you will fall through the ground and end up back on the street. Sometimes your car will disappear when you get put back on the street. If you walk in, you will fall but when you are put back on the street you will not lose any health.
Go to the Ganton gym and park a car in the doorway, with the hood touching the door. Get out, jump on the hood, and walk inside. Once inside, walk back out again. You will appear in a hallway. Walk towards the wall, and you will fall through the world.
Walk behind the Mullholland safe house to the pool. Face the side that has five windows. Walk into the one closest to the corner. If you do not automatically fall, walk to where the iron support beams end. You will start falling. In a few seconds you will land around the billboard that is in front of the Vinewood sign.
Go to the Ganton gym and park a car in the doorway, with the hood touching the door. Get out, jump on the hood, and walk inside. Once inside, you will appear in a hallway. Enable the "Spawn Jetpack" code and wear it. Walk towards the wall, and you will fall a short distance, then be able to fly under the city.
