Fun tricks you may not have heard of...

Recommended Posts

nb2010

When on Happiness Island, call Brucie and ask him to pick you up in the chopper. Stand near the chopper but dont get in. Shoot all the people you can see, collecting money and no cops come for about 5 minutes. Even then you just get a police chopper showing up which you just blow out of the sky. Several more come (one at a time) so just blow them up. After 20 minutes a cop on foot turned up on his own but by then i was bored and just got in Brucies chopper. Mind you, the wanted level was still there after Brucie took me to my destination.

Well, not really a "trick" by itself, but a good spot to defend against cops:

Go to Yusuf's Buzzard(in TBoGT) and use it to fly on the roof of the building nearby. From up there you can see cops coming through those 2 small passages, over time their cars block the road and they cant come in from there. Other than choppers, nothing can hurt you MOST OF TIME. obviously sometimes that single cop will get through, but thats what you have your carbine rifle/ak-47 for. Sometimes funny situations ensue if Noose trucks start swarming in, they will fall into the water pool nearby.

 

This is also a great spot to defend in multiplayer, as it has enough space for everyone to get cover from helicopters and shoot at cops.

 

This works just as good in GTA 4 or TLaD, just minus the powerful Buzzard spawn.

Actually any helicopter will do, just that with Buzzard its easy to attract attention before hiding on the roof.

 

 

Remember though, if you run out of ammo you can always escape with Buzzard. Or throw grenades and use everything else instead.

 

I haven't had chance to try this spot with FIB coming instead of Noose, but i reckon it would just take a bit longer for a roadblock to form itself, and they'd have slightly bigger chance of hurting you with their weapons.

 

This place is basically failsafe as long as you are careful. Eliminate everyone that comes too close because they can't shoot you unless they get close to the building.

 

And make sure you have a parachute, just in case those guys in Annihilators shot your Buzzard enough time for it to burn.

 

Once your wanted level is high, DONT jump into water behind the building. Or else you get swarmed by police boats and being in water - you have no escape or defense measures.

 

In TBoGT, call Henrique for an APC and then parachute down there if you need to get out.

Its possible to drift w/out mods.....

 

get a high horsepower car (not fast, powerful) like the FIB Buffalo. Do burnouts until both your back tires pop and you're riding on your rims. then go try to drift. its not the best drifting, but its pretty fun. lol.gif

I don't know if this was scripted or not but I had parked my Stallion on the side of the curb next to that wooden ramp near Middle Park and when I got out a motor bike crashed into the door and flew off.

 

That was cool as hell.

There are several stores you can rob:

 

-Laundry near Hove Beach (the one where you do a mission for Vlad).

-Laundry in Dukes at East Burough Bridge.

-All 3 [email protected] internet cafes.

-Modo

-Laundry in Alderny City at north end of Mahesh Ave.

 

 

Some other ways to make money:

 

If you run over and kill Brian with a car, he will drop up to $1500. The amount goes up depending on which encounter location.

 

Running over Eddie Low and Jeff at thier final encounter locations will yield some nice money as well.

 

You can park a Gruppe 6 Securicar over a burning trash barrel and it will eventually set the engine on fire. When it blows up, you get $1100 to $1500 without gaining a wanted level.

 

You can push another car into a gas pump with an undamaged Securicar. The car you pushed will explode right in front of you. Park the Securicar up against the flaming wreck and run!

 

Killing pedestrians at ATMs. Run a block away and come back, sometimes money respawns.

how do you rob those places? I've always wondered how after seeing a youtube video on it.

In TBOGT, if you activate a Drug War with Armando and Henrique, you can go on a killing spree and barely any cops will come. Even if they do, your wanted level will never break 2 stars. You can sit in Star Junction and have a long shootout with police; you will most likely never be in a position where they overwhelm you and you die.

 

I made a thread about this already, but if you hold down the trigger with a pump shotgun and crouch up and down rapidly, it will fire off rounds very fast without having to pump in between. If you master this trick you can shoot it faster than the combat shotgun and tear through cars and crowds of people.

I've found that if you get a Train to north park sometimes the game Glitches and you can see everything outside the subway but not in the Subway. Someone tell me if they experience that too.

this is more of a glitch, but if you go to the Sprunk factory tunnel, and there are hobos around the trashcan etc, go through the hole in the wall and they disappear (use "see behind" key) walk back and they re-appear. not sure why the game is coded like that.

This is more of a "Fun Thing to Do" than a glitch or trick...

If your toodling around in a vehicle and you come across an Ambulance, sirens wailing, thats going somewhere...

shoot out his tires and most of the time he'll take off running...and even with 4 tires GONE he'll give you a run for your money! Great pursuit practice with a lot of hilarity thrown in!

Once on the elevated freeway in Aldernay on an NRG going allout, on a straightaway, one was STAYING WAY AHEAD of me with 4 blown tires!

When you have completed all of Stevie's car deliveries, you can then give him ANY VEHICLE you want and you will get paid for it. I like giving him trucks. cool.gif

 

If you beat somone up and then go away from them (like down the road or turn away from them for a while) and go back to them they tend to generate money when you'r not there (works best on busy subway stations). colgate.gif

I went to try popat lal's "Fun with peds" thing (on pg 5) where you rile the peds and then get on the ladder and hold position and the peds toss themselves off the ledge...

Well, I accidently got a one star wanted level and went and got on the ladder and the fun began!!!

Bout 8 cops took a flying leap off! About 4 survived and they would climb the ladder but stop when they got to Nico (and not do anything).

So move Nico down and the cops would fall off the ladder! Move Nico back up, cops get back on...over and over. Pretty funny, till they get pissed and start shooting!

 

Edit: Did it again...MUCH fun!!! This time several of the cops would try to climb down the ladder with Nico positioned at the top. A soon as they "morph" with Nico (2 objects occupying same space) the cop gets "kicked out" of ladder cage and falls.

^ You're absolutely right simon.

 

I fixed it.

 

Gangsta, obviously it will only work with an analog controller like the 360 or PS3, I don't know if they make touch sensitive analog type keyboards for PC.

I'm not sure about the consoles but slamming on the brake just causes you to slow on the PC but if you hit the space bar you apply the handbrake which locks the wheels up. Maybe slamming on the brake for the consoles applies the handbrake, or is there a separate button for the handbrake on the consoles?

Ever wanted to be alone with your victims? To really experiment with them without those nosey police or with your victims running away?

 

Go to one of the enterable hospitals, use the spawn Cogsnescti cheat and spawn it in the hospital. Go in the car and position it so it blocks the door.

 

The people inside the hospital respawn too!

Thanks everybody for the contributions, i've just spent about 20 minutes going through them all and writing down the good one's.

 

Here's my input:

 

When on a busy road and cars are all around you (preferably at traffic lights) run past all the cars and push them or hit them with a baseball bat/knife. The people inside the cars will get out and try to fight you... You then jump ontop of a car and let all the people surround you. There should be about 6-8 people if you do it to 3-5 cars, they will all start throwing punches trying to hit you ontop of the car and in the process, start fights with themselves. This can be hilarious, especially when the police get involved. smile.gif

in the main mission, you will eventually be asked to take the subway. this subway station (south on the first island) can be driven up. this means that you can get on to the subway tracks and get away from 5/6 stars with ANY car.

Heres a fun thing to do.

Go to the hospital in dukes and go to the back hall to your right.

From there use the auto shotgun to blow the cart away.

Next, get a wanted level.

Take cover behind the wall and get ready for some fun. rampage_ani.giframpage_ani.giframpage_ani.gif

I know this thread is more about fun glitches (i had a blast with a few of these) but i found a new outfit while wandering around in SP.

 

There is a tourist sweater at the South side of the Statue of Happyness. It's kind of a cheezy sweater but i've been rockin it with the ski mask since i found it. But i think it only shows up once the main story is completed.
