  • Bandit Never Been Apprehended mission

    When the street crime mission is to bust the criminal "Bandit Never Been Apprehended" be ready to fire. Every time he pretends to surrender, he will fire. Note: If you do not want the Good Cop rating to go down, take out your guns and wait for him to pretend to give up and fire at you once, so that you have a reason to kill him.

  • Escaping car enemies on missions

    When you are supposed to flee from other cars shooting at you, look for big open spaces like the Staples Center parking lot and drive through them. The people chasing you will stay on the road and go all the way around, giving you a good chance to escape.

  • Stop carjackings

    When your enemy is escaping by stealing a getaway car, kick them when they are pulling out the victim to stop them.

  • Spotting illegal drugs

    To avoid wasting time frisking innocents, look for people that walk differently.

  • Restore health

    Learn where the impound garages are located. When you get low on health, just visit the garage. You will not only get a fresh car, your health will be full again.

  • More damage

    When an opponent is dazed, you can hit them hard into the wall with a finisher to do even more damage.

  • Deadly knife throw

    In some situations when a enemy drops a knife, you can pick it and throw it. If thrown correctly, it will impale their forehead, killing them.

  • Increasing Cop rank

    Go around checking everyone for drugs and weapons to get +1 Good Cop. Also, go to the Hancock Park area in the middle of the map. On a street corner at 2nd and Citrus Ave, you can frisk just about anyone close to or moving to the intersection and almost always finds drugs or weapons on them. Additionally, to increase your Good or Bad Cop rating easily, replay a stealth mission and choose your attack accordingly.

  • S.W.A.T. team

    To get the S.W.A.T. team on you, kill a number of civilians (about thirty). The S.W.A.T. team will come after you in black vans.

  • Get past fence

    When in a blocked off place with a fence on the other side, go up to it and face it. Do not press any buttons. The game will put you back on the other side within five seconds. It is easier to do this than hit the fence and not get through.

  • Push pedestrian through wall or fence

    When nick frisks a person next to a wall and they are clean, he will give them a push. They will pass through the wall and turn into a shadow. This also can be done with fences.

  • Movie reference

    In the game, there is a sign that reads "True Crime: Streets Of L.A.: The Movie, Fall 2005".

  • Defeating Wu's dragon

    When the dragon is about to use his fire attack, use you manual aim to shoot it in the mouth, thus avoiding its fire and tail attacks. Note: Do not bother trying to shoot him while he is swimming in the lava.

  • Defeating zombie during Wu's mission

    After beating up the chefs, a zombie will appear. Go near a stove and kick it. Hopefully, you have not destroyed it while fighting the chefs. The stove will explode and both of you will catch fire. The zombie will get greater damage than you. Repeat this with the second stove. If the zombie is still alive, knock him into the fire. Note: It is not possible to kill the zombie with physical attacks.
