When you crash and fly out of the windshield, you're somehow dead before you even hit the ground.

Of course you are. You go flying through a windshield at 100mph and we will see how alive you are.

Yeah when an impact is so hard that you fly through the windshield you will be pretty lucky to be alive.

Has anyone ever had their Car stolen? I just got out to attend a random event and when I went back to my car a woman was getting into it. It was my car not a stolen car.

I take heaps of Snapmatic photos for a different thread.  To get a better angle for the shot, I always stand on the roof of my car.

You wouldn't believe the amount of times some douche bag ped tries to steal my car WHILE I'M STANDING ON IT.

It happens more often if I'm using a sports or super car.  Nobody has tried to steal my Bifta yet.  Maybe because it's classed as a motorcycle & not a car.  IDK.

When you crash and fly out of the windshield, you're somehow dead before you even hit the ground.

 

It's a gruesome fact that sometimes, in high speed car crashes, fatalities occur as the driver/passenger is thrown from the car. They die of shock.

 

The fact that they died before hitting the ground is determined by lack of blood despite their injuries. The heart has already stopped so there is no bleeding...

When driving behind another car honking at it, the driver will not only speed up (as it was mentioned before) but sometimes he's brake checking, making you to rear-end him. After that, he will either speed off or get out to beat you up. Their reaction might depend on whether you give them the finger while honking or not, I'm not sure about that.

 

Some drivers instantly hits the brake when traffic lights turn from green to yellow while others simply speeds up to get through the intersection before it turns to red.

Not sure if this has been mentioned before or not, but Michael, Franklin & Trevor have an animation for crawling.

I was flying the blimp as Franklin & decided to park it on a grassy hill near the vineyard.

The hill only had a gentle slope but it was just a little too steep for the blimp.

When I got out, the blimp started to slowly slide backwards & knocked Franklin down.

I just assumed he would get stuck under it & lose all his health like when you get stuck under most other vehicles.

The blimp stopped sliding & Franklin wasn't getting squashed anymore, but he was still laying face down.

So he got up on his elbows & did a commando crawl for about 5 metres until he could stand up again.

 

I'm pretty sure I've never seen any characters do that before in any GTA game.

I tried replicating it again with M & T but it's very hit or miss because the blimp is not completely solid & the slope has to be just the right angle.

I managed to do it with M but couldn't get it to work with T, but I'm sure it does.

Anyone else noticed this before?

Try do this close to some sewer exit near the heliport that we buy, i'm cellphone now, so i cant post a pic...

Exit the heliport, take the street that goes to lsc and take the left on the grass, under the bridge/freeway... You will See a sewer exit with a small pedestrian bridge, that we cannot pass down. Crash your bike on the bridge and luckly you'll be under the bridge, so you'll See the animation that you said.

Of course you are. You go flying through a windshield at 100mph and we will see how alive you are.

 

This involved one of the coolest moments I've ever had with this game. I was cruising as Michael on the Raton Canyon Bridge (just north of the army base on the ocean highway) and made a poor swerve into oncoming traffic and nailed a car head-on, busted through the windshield, but I wasn't dead. I flew over the side of the bridge flailing, but he corrected himself and I was able to parachute to safety. It was nuts.

When you shoot missiles with P-996 LAZER aircraft, and hold the circle / B button
The display will focus on the missile

Tried this in both SP and Online. Neither worked.The camera won't focus on the missiles. It just enters normal cinematic mode. Am I missing something?

If you shoot the missile without a target, it will not work

So it works when you're locked on to a target? Interesting...

Right after completing the mission "Complications" one can go back into the car dealership through the broken window. I hung out for awhile and a Tailgater spawned in there, so it's a good way to get one for Franklin without Michael's custom plate.

 

After Simeon fires Franklin he makes himself Employee of the Month. What an assbag. 

 

You can steal the Maverick from the parachute jumps by killing the pilot and then holding triangle. You have to hold it like you're jacking a taxi cab.

Rats can stop traffic, ie. drivers will see them and slow down / stop

 

Chop can't swim

 

Cops won't chase you off the marked roads as long as you're in your car/vehicle. Get out and they start chasing on foot.

 

You don't have to kill the parachute chopper pilot, just go around the passenger side and hold down the "get in" button and the pilot will be pushed out to safety. Take off immediately otherwise he'll get back in, push you out and follow you indefinitely.

Also works with the Buzzard, of course.

 

Thanks for this tip, it adds a whole new type of cinematic.

Regarding the cinematic, for cinematic display in very slow motion
click the circle or B button, and then press the right stick(R3)
you can change the speed, by moving the right stick up(faster) and down(slower)

When you are in police chase ,If there is a police car or a police helicopter close to you
press the circle button or B, and you will see the view from the helicopter or the police car
You can select by moving the right stick right-left, up-down

Actually, I'm not sure if this has already been said but you can go back into the dealership as Franklin after it is fully repaired and Simeon will be waiting for you. He'll be there with some guy (probably his nephew Sasha, you know, with the twitch) and they'll both try to beat you up. After when you leave or kill Simeon the game saves and you will never be able to enter the dealership again.

This is my main source of choppers. Whilst you can just push him out, where's the fun in that :p the detail in this game is amazing, I've flew through windows and both survived and died.

The cinematic is interesting too! Will definitely try it.

That's what I do for a quick helicopter in Online, I call Merryweather for a helicopter pickup and just kill the pilot, and you've got an instant helicopter .

But then you have to wait for some time before you can call them back, I almost find it worth it to just get one from Trevor's Helipad or the Helipad located near Vespucci Beach.

If you put the airstrike flare in the back of a moving vehicle, the airstrike rockets actually move, as if following the vehicle. Best seen in the back of a pick-up truck.

I'm not sure if anyone remembers but you used to be able to do it back to back. Or at least I could.

You can throw tear gas into car windows and while the car drives off it will leave a trail of teargas in it's path.
