You will begin tagging Los Santos during the mission “Tagging Up Turf”. It will show you some various examples of where tags may be and what they look like. Spraying all the tags will also contribute to getting 100% completion on San Andreas.

If you run out a can of spray paint or are busted/killed a new can always be found in the Johnson house save point in the bedroom upstairs. There is also another can located behind the Johnson house. During the “Tagging Up Turf” mission, your spray paint is unlimited, so it can save a lot of time and hassle to do some of the tags now and leave Sweet in the car.

There are 100 tags in total located through Los Santos, some easier to find then others. Once you have sprayed all the tags you are rewarded with the following –

Reward
• Respect
• Tec-9
• Molotov Cocktails
• Sawn-Off Shotgun
• AK-47

The reward weapons will all be available in the kitchen of the Johnson house in Grove St.

Upon completion your gang members then carry Desert Eagles and SMGs instead of Pistols and Machine guns.

Click the number next to each tag below to see a screenshot of the tag and the general area surrounding it, this will help you to use the directions and the map below to locate all the tags.
Included in the guide is a map with blue circles pointing out where each tag is.

Nice guide Dave, but I'm wonder to what it's extent of helpfulness is. There are numerous guides all over the net to telling where the spray tags are, let alone trainers that can help you. Not to mention SA has been out for almost two years now.

But you did work hard, so good job.

Yeah fair point Bryce, I did wonder if this would be used due to SA’s age now, but I saw a new user asking about tags the other day and felt there were still enough playing SA who may use this.

Yeah, I'm not saying it's a bad guide at all, and it's obvious you worked hard on it. Who knows, maybe it will help new people out.

Yeah I was offered by one of my gang members some shots of the actual tags. But he was unsure of how long it would have taken to get them.

However I did say if enough people asked for pics I’d be more than happy to incorporate them into the guide.

O' now thats a kick in the balls. I've been working on this for the past few days as well. Was planning on finishing it the day after tomoz. Took pictures of about 70 tags for nothing cryani.gif

Well fair play dave, must say you have gone into good detail for the tags (I was planning on just the pics and a map tounge.gif ).

Personally I've not seen one of these guids for San Andreas yet.

Anyway, great job dave. cookie.gif

I have to echo the sentiments of others. While this is solidly put together, it seems somewhat like wasted effort as there are already maps all over the place -- including others with screenshots like 708145's and written FAQs describing the locations such as the one at GameFAQs. Anyhow, here are my initial thoughts on the content:

What strange numbering scheme are you using that causes the 6 tags in the Tagging up Turf Mission to have numbers 1-5 and 20? Is that from the Brady guide or something? Given that anyone who actually needs this guide is probably going to do the six mission tags first, they ought to be numbered 1-6 in the order they are generally done on the mission.

Speaking of numbering, why does the map just have blue dots? Having the map locations numbered to match the text seems a far more useful idea to me.

In the rewards section, you also should note that spraying all 100 tags gives your gangmembers the potential to carry Desert Eagles and SMGs instead of Pistols and Machine Pistols. Additionally, having "respect" in the bulleted list along with the 4 weapon pickups is kinda confusing, especially when it's followed by the phrase "Which will all be available in the kitchen of the Johnson house save point."

Finally, you should note the other spray can locations behind the Johnson house and in Las Colinas (the one in LV can probably be ignored) and that during Tagging up Turf your spraycan is essentially infinite so if you want to risk doing a whole lot without saving, you can leave Sweet in the car and go do a bunch then without any concern for "ammo."

It also might be useful to note that using the exterior spray can pickups, you can actually spray all 100 tags (and get the rewards) at the very start of the game. When you get around to the Tagging Up Turf mission, you simply have to respray the six for that mission.

Well there is no harm in having more than one guide for something.

I'm sure everyone knows how frustrating it is trying to find something, where as if there are a few guides out there then your chances of finding one are greatly increased.

Also personally I have never seen another guide that has the pics along with it (reason I was working on one), so no doubt there are pleanty of others who have not spotted these other guides. So here is dave no doubt giving someone help to complete there tag missions.

So basically its not at all a wasted effort. Nothing wrong with having more than one guide for something and there is no doubt that some people will find this guide first and will be helped by it and therefore making this guide a worth while.

I realize this. That's why the entire rest of my post (which you did not address) was constructive criticism on how to make this particular guide better. I still think it has limited usefullness, but I wouldn't have bothered pointing out omissions if I didn't think someone might find it helpful. Try not to get too defensive. wink.gif

I'll leave it to Dave to answer your questions because I only did the pictures (some of which are not very helpful but most of them are alright I think). I suggested putting in a note about how to find the spray cans that are available at the start of the game but he didn't add it in yet.

I think the numbering makes up some kind of partial circuit of the city, it isn't the order that I have always done the tags either. viddy_pirate.gif

An EXCELLENT job ! congrats to both Authors cool.gif



There are quite a few Guides/Maps on the Net but if I'm not mistaken this is the first for Tags on GTAForums except the Java Map of course.

As pdescobar said "... There are ommission's and 'Blue Dots' instead of number's..."
It's a bit confusing (for me) that could be easily fixed, but the numbers will be hard to read at a small res.

And ozzysm12 said "... Well there is no harm in having more than one guide for something..."
Very true wink.gif


saintdave, gillies
In every other guide /map/screenshot I looked at when first playing the game I alway's encountered incorrect locations, double check yours so this becomes the Defacto & Faultless guide wink.gif

Thanks Plaka (good to see you back btw). I'm sure that Dave will take the things PD brought up on board and make some updates. I also think adding the numbers to the map would be good if it can be done without making it too difficult to see the locations in any high density areas.

Is a good job, but as pdescobar said, in the map, tags are not numbered.
This map not only has numbered tags but in the pics, there's also the map where the tag is, thus making the whole 'information' on tags quite useless.

Somehow, the website I pointed out isn't too popular, and is very helpful, I used for all other item locations (hit the back button for an index of the other maps with horseshoes, phot opps, etc.)

I appreciate all the constructive criticism, and I will try and alter or implement some of the suggestions posted.

I did think of numbering the map but as Plaka says, the picture quality isn’t that great now. I have an idea round this so I'll give it a go today.

The Brady guide did help influence the creation of the guide, but it's not just a straight copy from the guide.

As for the rewards for getting all the tags, I was unaware that your own gang members get better weapons, nor the availability of other spray cans. The wording used to describe the rewards, and with respect as you pointed out was wrong on my part too.

As I say all these ideas, suggestions and other advice will be put into use today, I think I may have been a bit eager to get the guide out but I'll make good use of the edit button.

Edit - The changes have been put in, better description of rewards, other locations and just other bits and pieces suggested. The guide has been spaced out too. I decided not to number the tags, I began editing a map with numbers but they were too unclear when uploaded on the net.

I only quoated that part of your post because that is the only part I was refering to tounge.gif . Everything else you wrote was your own opinions and thaughts which I had no problem with. Was just wanting to point out about its not a wasted effort just because there are others.

Tags are effective if sprayed on early in the game since spraying all tags gives you weapons at the Johnson house. Since you're already past that point, you can do them later too. They are required for 100% though.
