No. Night vision goggles will be available after "Breaking the Bank at Caligula's". Thermal Goggles are available after the mission "Black Project".

Aren't the goggles [i forgot which type] available before that in Madd Doggs Mansion when you get the book for OG Loc? Or maybe I'm remembering incorrectly. I can check tomorrow.

 

Both types of goggles are useless in my opinion. I never used them. There is a weapon set cheat that the night vision goggles come with. Just don't save if you expirement with the cheat.

No, I dont think there is a cheat for any type of goggles.

If you don't mind a wanted level and are skillful enough

 

You can find the Thermal Goggles by the "BIG EAR"

 

And

 

the night Goggles in the "Foster Valley" complex.

That's probably because you're still too early in the storyline...

 

And just to add to what everyone else has already said:

Here are all of the ways and locations to obtain special goggles:

 

1) Thermal Goggles are obtained during the mission ‘Black Project’, and you can keep them after the mission is passed.

However, you will lose them if you do a mission afterwards that requires you to use a Parachute or Night-Vision Goggles.

You will also lose them by simply exchanging them for a Parachute or Night-Vision Goggles when you're not on a mission.

 

2) Night-Vision Goggles are obtained during the mission 'Breaking the Bank at Caligula’s, but are lost due to the fact that you must exchange them for the Parachute in order to pass the mission.

Important: You must exchange the goggles for the Parachute, I have tried to complete the mission without exchanging them, and it is impossible to do so, the mission simply will not progress any further until the exchange is made.

 

3) Night-Vision Goggles are obtained again during the mission ‘End of the Line’, and you can keep them after the mission is passed.

 

After completing various missions, special goggles can be obtained at the following locations:

 

1) Night-Vision Goggles inside Madd Dogg’s Crib in the open hallway-area just outside of the kitchen.

 

2) Thermal Goggles also inside Madd Dogg’s Crib, between the bar and the entertainment system.

 

3) Night-Vision Goggles on top of the Northwest Tower inside of Area 69.

 

4) Thermal Goggles at the base of the Big Ear, right in front of the Sandking spawn.

 

5) Thermal Goggles inside Zero’s RC Shop.

 

6) Night-Vision Goggles in Foster Valley, which is in the southern part of San Fierro. They are located at street-level in the middle of the long row-like building directly east of the 5-circular shaped office towers.

 

7) Night-Vision Goggles can be found inside Sherman Dam near the southern most generator.

Entrance to the dam is done on the upper level near the road through a door at the east end of the dam.

 

P.D. Escobar and Glen T. Winstein are the ones to thank for finding them; I didn’t know they existed inside the dam.

 

8) Thermal Goggles can be obtained inside Area 69 inside of the Control Tower.

 

Thermal Goggles at the previous locations can only be obtained once, and never again.

 

Night-Vision Goggles at the previous locations will re-spawn every 6 minutes.

______________________________________________________________________________

 

And here's a video that I made showing all of the locations to get them (non-mission):

I am wondering if the items/weapons listed on these maps are Version sensitive? (I have Version 2.)

 

After "High Noon" mission (as a time reference) I searched for a couple of the goggles.

Spent quite a bit of time looking In and Around the Dam. Could not find the Goggles.

 

Spent more time looking around the 'Foster Valley' location too. Also could not find the Goggles there. (Did find the AK47 as listed.)

 

Ok... Thanks, _KoE_Mzungu your help located the Grenade.

The Nigh Vision Goggles will spawn throughout San Andreas after completing the mission Breaking the Bank at Caligulas, see it as a reward. The locations you mentioned are all of the N.V.G.. Check these screens for the location of the grenades in Las Colinas.

 

 

3) Night-Vision Goggles are obtained again during the mission ‘End of the Line’, and you can keep them after the mission is passed.

Those are Thermal Goggles not Night Vision Goggles.

Check again... they are Night Vision Goggles in End of the Line... sorry, but you're incorrect.

Sorry my mistake indeed NVG are obtained, but there is also a Thermal Goggles available, only during End of The Line. It's somewhere in Big Smoke's Penthouse (top floor). Here is the SCM-code for that Thermal Goggle, including the coordinates:

032B: [email protected] = create_weapon_pickup #IRGOGGLES group 3 ammo 1 at 2575.03 -1281.598 1061.02

 

Edit:

Thermal Goggles can be found at the end of the first part of the mission End of the Line, it might help to find Big Smoke easier in the dark. If I'm correct it can be found close to the Sprunk dispenser.

Night Vision Goggles will be given to CJ at the start of the second part of the mission, after Big Smoke is killed. So it will automatically replace the Thermal Goggles.

 

Edit 2:

Yep, the location is indeed next to the Sprunk dispenser, check these screens.

very, very cool… I didn’t know that the Thermal Goggles were there… I went and checked it out… they disappear after Big Smoke is killed no matter what, even if they weren’t picked up by Carl during the actual gun-battle with Big Smoke… so there’s absolutely no way to keep them.

If you are using one of the Chain Game saves, like I am, they are always available in the armories at all times-from the beginning of the game until the end of the game. but otherwise, I don't think you can obtain them early, unless you can find one available as a pick-up somewhere in SA. Hope this helps.

After you pick up a thermal goggle pick-up, I believe that they don't spawn ever again in that location. However, the night vision goggles do respawn. I really like the night vision goggles, but the thermal goggles kind of suck as you can't see where you're going sometimes since lots of stuff is the same color.

This was already mentioned by zmoonchild. wink.gif

Probably a fault by R*, like the knife and rifle in San Fierro, which spawns in the Blue Hell.

 

Thermal Goggles at the previous locations can only be obtained once, and never again.

 

Night-Vision Goggles at the previous locations will re-spawn every 6 minutes.
