-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The List
If you wish to post a Secret Or Easter Egg please try to send a picture or a exact location so someone else can get a picture of it. you don't have to but this so people don't send in fake Easter Eggs.


I have organized the secrets & easter eggs by category. These categories are:
•Rockstar References
•Sex References
•Previous Grand Theft Auto References
•Musical References
•Movie References
•Television References
•Manhunt References
•Real-Life References
•Other Game References
•Miscellaneous References/Secrets
•Possible References/Secrets
•Unconfirmed References


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rockstar References - The people at Rockstar love to put their logo everywhere they can. Here's a list of what's been found so far:


Sex References - The pervs at rockstar really love hiding sexual content in their games. Here's a list of what's been found:


Grand Theft Auto References - Rockstar has included quite a few references to previous Grand Theft Auto Games. Here's a list:

1. Niko
Niko the main character from GTA: IV. The end credits of The Lost & Damned show various missions in Niko Bellics story, including Romans sorrow, bleed out,uncle vlad, museum piece & three leaf clover. (thanks Pr0xy_fl00d3r) but there are lots of references to Niko and the storyline of GTA:IV, what do you expect it is the add-on for GTA IV

Musical References - There's a few references to music in Liberty City also. Here's what's been found so far:


Movie References - There also are a few items that are meant to refer to movies.

1. Wayne's World
There's a car called a Rhapsody that can be found in-game. It is very similar to the one that Wayne and Garth drive in the movie Wayne's World. If you open the door and zoom in to the dashboard, there is a photo of Wayne and Garth taped onto it. Also, the car's name - Rhapsody - is a nod to the famous 'Bohemiam Rhapsody' scene from the movie. (thank to Marquischacha for the words and Enjoii for the discovery)

2. Silence of The Lambs
In Stubbs' second mission 'Off Route', during the cut scene before you steal the prison bus, a prisoner is being led out with a face mask similar to Hannibal Lecter's in the movie 'Silence of The Lambs'. The cop also says 'I saw what you did to that orderly!'. In the movie, Lecter tears out an orderly's tongue with his teeth. (thanks Marquischacha)

3. Come Out To Play!
In the mission 'Bad Standing', when you're running through the hideout looking for Brian, Johnny calls out, 'Brian, come out to play', in a style similar to that of Luther from the 1979 movie 'The Warriors'. Also, Rockstar adapted 'The Warriors' into a game in 2005.(thanks Marquischacha)


Television References - Ahh, yes. The world of TV. It isn't a surprise that there would be a few references to television in Liberty City.


Manhunt References- Manhunt, one of Rockstar's other great games, makes appearences in Liberty City. There are so many Manhunt references that it is deserving of it's own section in my list. Here they are:


Real-Life References - There is also quite a few easter eggs that refer to things in real life. Whether it be a landmark, a store, a music icon, or just a person, it's here. Here's the list:

1. Frankie Boyle
Frankie Boyle the Scottish comedian, seen on shows such as 'Mock The Week', can be seen in a Ricky Gervais style appearance in the comedy club 'split sides'.

Other Game References - Rockstar also placed a few references to other video games, mainly talking sh*t about them.


Miscellaneous References/Secrets - Just a list of secrets and easter eggs that don't fit into any other category.


Possible References/Secrets - These items appear to have been placed in the games for a reason. Maybe they are easter eggs that we haven't found the link to. But so far it is unsure what the reference is or if there even is a reference. Some may have a reference, but may only be a glitch.


Unconfirmed References. - These are what I like to call" Unconfirmed References". They have been listed in this topic, but I need confirmation like a picture or something.

I don't want to sound like I'm trying to take credit away from anyone but the Rhapsody easter egg was posted several times before Marquischacha posted it.
And the credits are an easter egg of sorts, they show clips from several happenings throughout GTA IV.

I don't really consider things like scenes from Niko's story as easter eggs.

Though I like the addon overall, the lack of easter eggs is fairly depressing confused.gif

Mentioned this in some other thread:

Niko Spotted

In the beginning of the introduction, Niko Bellic was shown roaming the streets of Alderney. He pushed into some civilian, in which the civilian flamed Niko. Niko then responded in Serbian "f*ck you too" and walked away.

Yeah, I wasn't the first to point out the Rhapsody egg - I just had an attempt at writing a Secrets/Easter Eggs thread - this one looks much better though smile.gif

And to someone88 - yeah, I'd expected a few more. I probably haven't noticed much since I've not completed the story yet.

Thing is, with Rockstar, a lot of the Easter Eggs are put into the city in the form of advertisements, car names, TV shows etc. And I guess the interplay between Johnny and Niko's storys kind of serve as secrets sometimes. I dunno. I'm sure more eggs will pop up at some point biggrin.gif

Augh, sorry for double post, but forgot to mention this one. Spoiler alert, be careful.

In the mission 'Bad Standing', when you're running through the hideout looking for Brian, Johnny calls out, 'Brian, come out to play', in a style similar to that of Luther from the 1979 movie 'The Warriors'. Also, Rockstar adapted 'The Warriors' into a game in 2005.

Yeah I think what the oysterbarron meant was that when the Lost are cruising through Alderney, at that point in Niko's storyline, he wasn't able to access Alderney?

Actually, come to think of it, didn't the Lost go over to Algonquin and that's where Niko appeared? Augh, I don't remember.

yeah you got it, even if they did dont think niko has access still till at least after elizabetha missions, started replaying GTAIV before i got lost and damned, just got upto the liz torres mission and the police are still blocking the bridge.

Well they are, not all easter eggs are like the "heart of the city" one you know. It is merely a reference to the protagonist on another game. The showing of Nikos story in the credits was awesome, that was a pretty huge easter egg as it shows Luis fernando Lopez escaping across the roof on the Museum piece part of the credits.

Also, the Warriors one was pretty cool, I loved that film...& the game.

Not sure if this is any good, I'll fill it in anyway.

In the museum mission, you can see Niko running around. If you're quick, you can kill him. If you do, the mission fails, and you ring Ray and he says something like "Oh no, not Nicky...I mean, I never liked the guy but they don't usually come that f*cking cheap"
I think (and I might be wrong) that I also got a glimpse of Johnny when I played that mission as Niko, I dunno what happens if you kill him then (if he IS there)

I don't think that was supposed to be taken seriously like it was just put in so people would say "Hey there's Niko" and have a little giggle.

The bridges being closed was just put into GTA 4 as a plot device to encourage people to stay in Broker untill Bohan was unlocked etc. and to give a sense of progression aswell. Johnny's story begins before Niko gets to Bohan and there's no mention of bridges being closed. This is because chances are if your playing that game you have already completed GTA 4 so they don't want to punish you in a sense by putting you back to square one.

This type of thing happens all the time in video games like how many times have we all begun a level of a game where you turn around to go through the door you just came through only for the game to prevent you from doing so. Like there's nothing in real life that would prevent you from going back through a door you just entered. You have a f*cking Rocket launcher use that! But you can't... It's the same reason why you can fit that same rocket launcher on your person and have it remain invisible untill selected even though you're carrying twelve other weapons as big as your leg.

It's a game!! Don't got so caught up about technicallities... Just enjoy it.

im not sure correct me if im wrong but when niko first comes to liberty there is a terrorist threat going on of witch if i remember correctly johnny triggers in a later mission of his meaning niko wouldnt have been in LC at that point of the game.
