Fun tricks you may not have heard of...

Recommended Posts

ur friends will never hate you

 

whenever your friends call you for an activity, say "yes"... after you hang up, call them back and choose "cancel plans"... this will get you out of the activity and it wont lower your friendship at all.

Thanks for this tip; I was getting so sick of them calling me when I am trying to go someplace far away.

 

One thing to note. Not hanging out with them for too long will cause a negative friendship rating. they will send you a text message with something like, "Niko, are you dead?"

Dunno how many people know this but here goes:

 

On the back of the forkilft, there's a gas tank. If you shoot this, you can make the gas leak and set people on fire.

 

This can also be done on some of the big gas towers.

 

Although, the forklift will blow up after so many shots.

Tollbooth Trick - get a motorcycle or Blista Compact, a motorcycle works best IMO. you will see that there are gaps between and on either far side of the tollbooth terminals. all you have to do is drive through these gaps with the motorcycle. the blista can only drive between them and not on the far sides. the pros are it is free, you wont get wanted and its quiker than waiting.

 

Cellphone Conversation Speed-up - you may have overlooked this (like i did the 1st time i played through), but you can skip through any cell phone conversation by pressing down on the d-pad. this way you can speed through and still absorb the storyline.

yeah. in the mission "liquidize the assets" you can huddle all the vans against the conveniently placed forklift and blow them all up without wasting grenades or RPGs... and it makes a pretty cool explosion too...

When in cinematic view you can push the right stick, the analog stick, in any direction to cycle through the cinematic views!

While playing TBOGT, place c4's on the bumper of car while doing Drug Wars and if its a stickup or a stash. Then you can take speed, jump out from the car and if you're lucky then the car hits dealer's car and the c4 detonate. You can also manually blow them up right when your car is middle of them tounge2.gif

I've noticed that when you pull out a weapon like the pistol, shotgun, machine pistols, or the assault rifles the surrounding peds sometimes, occasionally, make a remark about it.

Well, stand by a crowd or just walk down the street with the RPG equipped and they'll react a LOT more than with the other weapons.

And the peds got lots of funny remarks and reactions.

There's a location right behind Brucie's place (with the heli-pad), a plaza with a weird statue, where you can get your wanted level up and not worry about the police. For some strange reason, no police can find it even though it's out in the open. You will still get police choppers, but no actual officers will come near the area. monocle.gif

Forgive me if I just end up re-posting these.

 

 

You can make cops less aggressive during taxi rides if you look at the destination choosing screen. Once you do, some (sometimes all) cops ignore your existence.

 

I haven't tried this in Roman's cab, only in a regular cab when you put in the wanted cheat during a ride (one of my favorite pastimes, by the way.) But I'm sure it would work (and be potentially useful) in Roman's cabs. And I assume this MIGHT be a decent way of getting the "Last _ minutes with 6 stars" or whatever achievement.

 

 

 

Another similar thing to do: When you have cops after you, you can last a long time if you keep spamming to buy from a snack/soda machine. Every time you start the animation of buying it, the cops will start walking off/wandering around instead of shooting at you. Then, of course, the snack/soda will heal you. I've had standoffs with the NOOSE that ended in me dying in a big pile of soda cans. xDD

 

Of course, that doesn't allow you to shoot back. But sometimes the cops will wander far enough to allow you to aim at them, shoot, then go back to spamming the machine.

idk maybe everyone knows this but if you go in the internet cafe or any other computer and go to the website "littlelacysurprisepageant.com" you immediately get 5 stars. kill a few people and get a 6 star wanted level to get that acheivement for it.

Want to lose the cops in Algonquin, like on Elizabeta's coke mission or Packie's bank robbery?

Head for the pedestrian walkway that goes between the two lanes of the Algonquin bridge (the one with blue lights). Cops will not follow you and so long as you maintain your speed you should be able to outrun any 3-star wanted level easily.

 

Another small tip some people may not know: Niko can run much faster if he does NOT have any weapon selected.

When in a police chase at night, go to Grotti Cars. To get in, you will have to go in through the windows. Go upstairs and you'll find that the police don't go in the building. I done this once and shot the police as they came, then I jumped off the balcony and got into the police enforcer then had another car chase.

 

Also, when in a police chase, if you fly out of your vehicle or if you need a new one. Instead of going through the normal break the window routine which allows just enough time for you to be killed, run and shoot the window. This will allow you to quickly enter the car and drive away.

I always do this. It's a really good tip that saves a lot of time. Hopefully someone sees that and uses it.

I've found a new bug in Playboy's Penthouse.

 

When you approach the minimum distance of the pool table on the windows side, you can shoot and it will make HUGE holes! wow.gif

If you hit LI(Left Bumper button) and then Left, Right, Up, or Down on the D-pad you'll quick select weapons. I don't remember what each one does. But I know one is for shotgun, one is for grenades, one is for Pistol, and one is for the SMG and Assault rifle.

you don't need to call 911 to fix the stalled car. you can just call any one digit number and it will start.

Termination

The place where you can play darts right before Masinette 9 (I might have spelled it wrong), you can pick up glasses and through them at the people inside but they won't take damage. Also you can knock down someone's coffee and throw it at them and it takes 1 bar of health. At the bowling place near golfing, the food court has french fries that you can pick-up. (These are in TBOGT and TLAD, I don't have GTA IV so I'm not 100% sure if it works there for the above).

Using LT or L2 instead of RT (R1) or A (X) as the breaks is a lot more effective and is less likely too make you skid no matter if you press it in completely or slowly apply pressure and it breaks quite fast aswell

 

EDIT: Not that effective for cornering may have too start turning a bit earlier using that brake system.

To add on to the post above. This is a good method but it is better to slowly apply the breaks. When you press the button in completely, the brakes will lock and it's harder to turn corners.

Ryan, i know thats true but for braking in a straight line like when your looking for a road and you are coming up too it going really fast the LT (L2) way doesnt make you skid or turn but i agree with gently easing them for when going around corners

i use both brakes when braking. when commin to a turn i will use the regular brakes to slow down then the hand brake to put the vehicle into a drift/slide. if you know how to use the braking system and gas, you can take turns at a good speed.

Probably already known, but you can press the fire button during a fall and shoot your gun rapidly. It's pretty funny with the explosive shotgun in BoGT.

I got one. Get a vehicle, anything except motorbikes, helicopters and boats. Head over to a place with big high differences, I usually go for highways. Now, find a "gap" on the side, like, a "hole" in the wall. Get 1 wanted level and park your car so that driver's door is at the edge. Watch as the feds are trying to arrest you but only succeeds by falling into their death.

 

Pretty fun trick, should make you laugh, atleast it did it for me lol.gif. A couple of places you can try: Plumber's Skyway in Alderney has a few gaps. The highway in the island between Dukes and Algonquin have one gap at the south area.

Way To Go, Leopard_!!!! That was Hilarious!!!! I love "Messin with the Man" Works Great! Many Thanks!

 

Heres something...you all ARE aware of the silo big drum looking towers scattered around (especially in Aldernay around Tudor) that you can shoot/ram/blow up the wooden looking bases and they tumble down...old news...

if you hit them or when they are falling they sound hollow...so you wouldnt think to shoot them! Well shoot them anyway (upclose with bullets) and see what happens!

And shoot the water radiator/heaters in some of the savehouses.

 

Edit: Shoot the TV's too!

The Infernus has no trunk. This was clear to me when I had a few frontal crashes. The hood never opens up.

 

Police are always dedicated. Sometimes to dedicated. Drive to an area with a road. Maybe an alleyway. Use the wanted level cheat [267-555-0150] and the cops should start coming toward you. Then use the wanted level down cheat [267-555-0100] and the wanted level should go down. The police still will come to your area and look around. They don't get out of their car but they will will drive to your area. This is because the game sets the pathway to for their car. But even though your wanted level is gone, the police still come to your area. It is recommended that you enter the cheats first then use them. This will mean you can get N.O.O.S.E. Enforcers to come. If they hit you, you get a 1 star wanted level. [email protected] icon14.gif

Wheelie master -

 

most people accelerate and start their wheelie in the process. However, this isn't a good technique. You should have a nice steady fast speed going. Then lean forward all the way, and quickly pull back until you slowly reach the apex of the wheelie. You will find its both easier to execute and easier to maintain the wheelie at high speeds. Alot easier in TLaD with the Double-T.

 

Grenades while Driving -

 

If a cop, or a few, is right on your tail. Simply hold onto the grenade a little longer until its right about to blow (the HUD icon of the grenade will blink faster). this will take out the 5-O tailgating you. if you dont hold onto the grenade it'll be thrown and it'll detonate far after the cops pass over it.

 

Drunk Driving technique -

 

Instead of correcting your innebriated driving by compensating for the turns. Rapidly go from left to right with the left thumbstick and you should keep a straighter line.

 

Death Camera -

 

If someone shoots you dead, the screen will turn to black and white and you'll only have control over the zoom and rotation of the camera. but if you dont rotate and just zoom in it will be centered on the person who killed you. perfect if you keep dying and dont know where the bullets are coming from. (not sure if this is in IV, but it is in TLaD & TBoGT) rampage_ani.gif
