This isn't a real easter egg but it's not like anyone is reading this anyway so wth.

I'm somewhat disappointed that they didn't call that Kenny mission where you steal those cars so Chan can use them in his streetraces "For Chan". Get it?

Throughout CTW's Liberty City, you can find billboards advertising toys for little girls labelled 'Little Bitches'- it's most likely a reference to 'Bratz', a line of controversial fashion dolls for girls.

I'm not sure if the 'Little Bitches' ad appears in GTA IV since I don't have a PS3 or 360.

At the mission Raw Deal, one of the biggest problem for me was actually falling through the map, as soon as you enter the car that was in the middle and drive forward you'll be pushed under the map and you won't be able to get back out, had to do that mission like four times because of that (and because I failed sometimes aswell).

Also, I am dissapoint. Though I think it's sad that 4chan has actual influence on games.

The russian dealers say I am dissapoint when you don't bring them what they were looking for.

A hint not a glitch but anyway:
How to jack a vehicle with 100% sure that police won't chase you?
Punch it a fewteen times, and the driver will get out and hit you/run. Do the same with parked cars, just wait till the alarm will drop. Remember to don't do it on police cars, or you'll get a wanted level. But if you'll punch civilian cars with police looking at it, you won't get a wanted level as said previously.

It could just be their bad English, perhaps.

I'm not sure if anyone else posted this or not (didn't care to check), but in one of the missions with Kenny, he makes a reference about 'An Avenging Angel'. This is from Liberty City Stories PSP as one of the side missions and an outfit.

I just found out one like, a minute ago.

Nothing big, it's really insignificant. It's just there tounge.gif

Go to Boulevard (somewhere north-east on the map, right where El Mezzerino the dealer is) and if you walk on the wooden alley (sorry, i'm french, and I really don't know how this should be called).

Now look on the GPS. It says you are standing right in the water, like 1-2 meters beside it.

As I said, nothing big, but still, it's a glitch.

EDIT : Also, you may not remember it 'cuz it is only shown at the beggining of the game.

But when you go to the first safehouse of the game (the one Uncle Kenny gives you in Cerveza Heights) if you look on the side of the wall over your door, there is a huge journal print of Hsin that made the front page. I forgat that by the end of the game, so when I saw it again, I was surprised XD

There is a place near Francis Intl. Airport where you can see it better.

EDIT no. 2 : Some of you guys may know this one, you only need to be a little smarter.

When a dealer tells you he wants, example, heroin, then, go see him, and if he already has heroin on him, buy it, no matter what the price is. Then, go to your house, store the heroin, save, then, pick up all the heroin you have, yours and the one you bought from the dealer, and go meet him again. He will re-buy his own drug + yours for the same price as if it was all yours.

EDIT 3 : I was trying to get the Taxi-On-Hapiness-Isalnd glitch, so I took the taxi and put a flag on Happiness Island. It drove me to Castle Gardens. So I retried, and put a flog on Ossama the dealer, and (skipped the ride) it got me to East Island City. Discoverd a Glitch by trying another one out, pretty proud ! XD

EDIT 4 : There is a sing on the road that invies you to "have a puff and a pint" like soking and drinking. Here is the SnapMap to it.

Good stuff! Would you say that it is a normal part of the game or just a glitch? It seems like it could be something R* deliberately done.

I don't know, but it worked well for me the first and only time i tried.

I did it a the Francis Intl. Airport. I was sur not to hit anything, or shoot a cop and get a wanted level.

Welcome to the GTA: Chinatown Wars Easter Eggs and Glitches Topic!

After recent discovery of one or two secrets in this brilliant DS game, it seems like there is more to CTW's Liberty City than we think. So if you spot anything out of the ordinary, or anything that's intended to be strange, post it here so we can add it to the list!


Easter Eggs


Sunken Ships: Throughout the waters of Liberty City, lies the corpses of huge boats. Some are based off the "Tug" from GTA IV while others take inspiration from Vice City's very own sunken ship. There has also been a pirate ship spotted.

Here are some of the known locations:

Tug Boats

Vice City Sunken Boat Rendition/s

Pirate Ship


Toxic Waste: Liberty City truly is a filthy place; just look at what people have dumped into the sea.

Toxic Waste Location


Funny Random Voices:: By closing the DS's screen and opening it again during play, you will be surprised to hear some funny comments and voices.


Here Be Dragons: Drive a boat all the way to any corner of the map, and prepare to giggle.

Here Be Dragons Location Example

Screenshot


Wilhelm Scream: On random character Wilhelm's 3rd encounter, he jumps off a bridge, in which you hear the famous Wilhelm scream used in all sorts of media (T.V, films, etc).


CockRock: Go to the Firefly island beach and look around east of near where GTA IV's bowling alley was. You should see a bunch of rocks, arranged in a way that reminds you of Rockstar's humor. (Credit goes to Agerbon)

CockRock location


'Hot Coffee' Reference: After the second mission, Huang asks the triad chick if she would like to come in his apartment for some 'coffee'. Har har. An obvious joke referring to the controversial Hot Coffee mini game from San Andreas.


Zhou's Mission Retry Icon : Look at the mission 'repeat' board inside a safehouse and check out Zhou's section. He is represented by a logo which was used as a tattoo back in San Andreas.


GTA III Triad Logo Tattoo: One of the tattoos the player can draw out is exactly the same as the logo for the Triad back in GTA III.

Triad Logo


Alonso = Don Quixote?: Alonso, the random encounter character, could be a take on Don Quixote. He has a Spanish name, he talks weird and he beats up a Bus claiming it's a dragon, a Reference to Quixote beating up windmills claiming them to be giants.


Alley Way Face Returns!: The face used by Rockstar Leeds to fill up the space of the "secret sign" within the "secret alleyway" can be found underwater at the most northern part of the game map.

Screenshot

Swim north of here to find it.



Glitches


Spanish Lord's Warehouse Van Case: Quite minor, but if you damage the van to the point of high damage/fire, go the to the checkpoint and you can open the case anyway, despite not being in the van. Must be done as quickly as possible so the van does not explode before.


Falling Through Map: Not much info on this, but apparently, it is possible to sink through the ground. If this happens, just travel to the edge of the island and out into the open water.

If you have any more detail about that, let me know.


Pay'n'spray Eating Bikes: If you drive a bike too fast into the P'n'S garage, you should crash into the wall on the inside and fall off. However, the garage door shuts on you anyway and acts as if it's re-spraying your vehicle (time advances by 3 hours). But when the doors open up again, Huang walks out on his own, without the bike.


Dumpster Checking At A Distance: Ever feel like rummaging through a dumpster that's a couple of feet in front of you? Me neither, but if you fancy it, just stand right next to it, fire a rocket and press select as fast as possible. If done right, you should be able to browse the trash despite Haung being blown back.


Mission Replay - Lose Items: When replaying a mission, do your best to refrain from going into a safehouse, as you may lose your weapons and drug stash.


Drug Van Passenger: If you're unlucky, you might find that by attempting to jack a random drug van off the streets results in kidnap! Jack the van from the passenger side and the van might keep driving even though you are in it and have no control.

Video Footage


Driver-Less Taxi Ride: If you jack then exit a taxi at the same time as you are hailing it, you will sometime get the driver to jump out but still get a the chevrons to appear. You can then enter the taxi and choose a location, but the taxi won't actually drive anywhere. The driver is just standing outside the taxi staring at it. You can skip the ride, but when you get there, the taxi again will not move to the final location because there's no driver.


Under-water Taxi: Get a taxi to take you to the drug dealer in the southern most part of Francis International Airport and skip journey, when you get out, the taxi will curve round and fall into the water, hail the taxi while it's in midair and fall into it quickly make a destination. the taxi will be on the seafloor sitting there but can't move, if you skip the journey it will be on the brink of explosion with black smoke and sparks going everwhere. NOTE: (If you hail the cab while it's on land or in water this will not work, it has to be in before it's in the water but after it's off land).

Underwater Taxi Picture


Gang Burrito = Angel Bike?!: A random occurrence. If you attempt to steal a drug-filled van, but accidently run inside the lotto store, the van will be mistaken for an Angel. When you get in, the name "Angel" appears as the van's name, which is incorrect.




Getting Onto High Buildings: Involves a gas station and a bike. Refer to this topic for info on how it's possible:

http://www.gtaforums...howtopic=410379


Boats In Walls : A random occurring glitch. All you need is a wanted level and a bit of luck. Coastguard boats sometimes spawn in solid walls on the perimeter of an island, which, when entered, allow you to go under the map.


Short-Sighted Helicopter pilots: The helicopters that randomly fly over the bridges sometimes knock over streetlamps. And police 'copters sometimes get themselves stuck in stuck in small spaces, e.g. between a fence and a wall. You'd think they'd be able to fly up.



Misc.


Explosions/Terrorist Attacks: There have been recent sightings of random explosions or crazy pedestrians causing chaos. There doesn't seem to be a specific place or time these occurrences happen, but people have seen a helicopter get blown out of the sky by a rocket launcher, exploding petrol stations and flamethrower mad men. If you have any further detail, please enlighten us!


Huang's Voice: By now, you should think that Huang can only speak in the form of text. But if for some reason you refuse to break open the glass of the car whilst falling into the depths of the ocean, you should hear him yell: 'Sh*t!'.


El Burro: He was in GTA and GTA III, and for some reason, he's quite well known. He has returned however, in CTW as one of the drug dealers! You get an e-mail from him too not long after you are introduced to drug dealing.


Mission Name references:Like in most other GTAs, Some missions owe their names to pop culture, amongst other crap. So here they are:

"Rat Race" - Either a reference to the film or the song by Bob Marley.

"Jackin' Chan" - Ever heard of Jackie Chan? You better have.

"Dragon Haul Z" - Dragon Ball Z? You're not expected to know what that is, don't worry. Its an anime cartoon about some really tough guys that can fly and beat sh*t up.

"Whack the Racers" - Based off the classic cartoon titled: Wacky Races.

"The Fandom Menace" an obvious reference to Star Wars episode I, the Phantom Menace. This accompanies

"Store Wars", which is Star Wars. And my personal fave,

"The Tow Job", which sounds like the rather humerous act of fellatio.

"Tricks of the triad", while perhaps not an explicit reference to pop culture, is a nod to the saying tricks of the trade.

"Natural burn killers" is a spoof of the movie Natural Born Killers.

"Carpe 'Dime" Which is a parody of Carpe Diem, which is that latin saying for "sieze the day"

"Fut Tze and Dau Jonz" - FTSE 100 and Dow Jones Industrial Average, stock exchange indexes.

"Wan Kee" - Wanker, that oh-so-popular British swear.


Sum Yung Gai: The name of uncle Kenny's shop. Self explanatory play on words, but it is pronounced either 'Some Young Guy' or 'Some Young Gay'. This joke was used on Wayne's World so is a highly possible nod to the film.


Osama the Dealer: May not be intended, but next to the statue of happiness is a drug dealer ironically or coincidently named Osama. Sound familiar? It's also interesting to note that if you skip a taxi ride to his location, it is possible to get the taxi on the island and drive it around.


"Little Bitches" = "Bratz"?: You can find billboards advertising toys for little girls labelled 'Little Bitches'- it's most likely a reference to 'Bratz', a line of controversial fashion dolls for girls.



If I've missed anything, made a mistake or want some credit for finding something, just let me know and I'll keep this updated. Keep searching! smile.gif

Theres also a mission called "Hits from the Tong", and references too Cypress Hill's track "Hits From The Bong" wink.gif

I don't know if we should consider it Easter Egg or not, but anyway...

In Hatton Gardens, there is an Incerdible Stunt in an empty parking lot. Do it, and on the other side of the sign you have to break, you'll land in a kind of memorial park or something... Walk around and you'll find a statue of a man with his arms up in the air, and a cone on his head.

I tried to blow the cone away with a molotov cocktail, but the cone didn't move.

I found a cool glitch with the police helicopter. Ok first go near a hospital. Get a 3 star wanted level and wait for the helicopter to appear. Then kill yourself near the hospital. When you come out the police helicopter will just be hovering in midair doing nothing. Then if you get even 1 star, the helicopter will shoot at you. Its pretty cool.

Ambulance Cheat
Get an ambulance and put it in your safehouse garage. As you put it in, tap the "Start Saving Lives" button. When you walk out of the garage, you will have the equipment from the ambulance. Any vehicle (including bikes and go-carts) that you get into will become an ambulance. This will only work if you stay in one vehicle. Also, i dont know if this works on the DS or PSP because i have it for the iPod touch.

That's pretty awesome! Nice find.

Hey, I found this a while back, but at random stores throughout the city, sometimes a random ped will go in, then you'll hear an alarm and they'll run out, I witnessed it once, then it never happened again... yet.

Here's the store location: Location

What's strange is if you witness the robbery, no cops come; and if you drive away and come back, the alarm would still be on. I wish that the cops would come when there is a robbery, it would make it more realistic. And have them park on the side of the road with their lights on and their caution lights...

I guess this could go under "Misc." Just a random event...

I don't know if the fact that the "golden" dealer (Sean) is an easter egg, as he is "camera" shy, and his name is Sean.
Anyways, ironically, my first deal with him was a bust, and he dragged a gun and started shooting at me. I tried getting "deal-busted" with him again, but I couldn't.
