Tips on how to escape the cops?

Recommended Posts

I can almost NEVER escape the cops in this game. Especially on a Three Star Wanted Level. Any tips on how to escape them?

Its so easy to escape them you for real? :/ It used to be way harder since you couldn't lose wanted stars from hiding.

If they are chasing behind you do a 180 and drive towards them. It takes them a little time to turn around and you can usually get far enough for the red and blue to stop flashing on your mini map then hide somewhere out of sight. This works for me 90% if the time. I've outrun a three star wanted level with a Mac truck.

Pull into parking garages...stay out of their cone of visibility. Zoom mini-map out to see where they're coming from. Get something above your head to protect from chopper.

the most annoying thing is if i get in a new car, they shouldn't be able to spot me so easilly, that is what the gray player arrow indicates, no such luck. changing vehicles is useless then

Changing vehicles works only if you don't get close to them. I've had cops drive past me as I hid inside a vehicle twice now. It's really twitchy about it though.

Fun fact, that also worked in GTA IV, although it was even harder to pull off.

Use the alley ways. Drive a distance and then move somewhere in. If possible a alley way with side roads. Then hide against the wall and most of the time the police will drive past.

Yea, get a good distance between you and the cops, the wanted stars should start blinking by then. Soon after that, get cover. Drive under the freeway or in a tunnel.

Like others are saying, it's really not that difficult. I thought it was at first until I quickly realised that just veering off into an alley where they're not can often be enough to shake them off.

 

I like this new revamp though. Staying hidden and out of sight should always be more important than just getting out of the wanted zone. Better than previous GTA games for me where cops just seemed to telepathically know where you were.

If it's hindering your enjoyment of the game, use the cheat.

 

I don't understand why people...who, get annoyed they can't evade cops but don't use cheats I mean, the game is supposed to be fun, if you have more fun using the cheat then use the cheat.

 

I use the cop cheat all the time because I'd rather be spending my time exploring the environment and having fun than spending ages losing heat.

Heres a few great tips:

 

While your escaping from them, drive or look around for 4 types of areas:

 

Alleyways

Construction sites

Parking lots

House backyards

 

If you are able to get out of the line of sight for even a second so that they are searching for you and you see their search cones pointing in whichever direction then look for any of the 4 spots i mentioned above.

 

If cops are following you very closely behind you, turn corners and cut corners as much as possible. In some cases, the cops could be travelling at greater speeds to ram into you, so you could do a 180 and speed the other way.

 

If your in the countryside, if you have a few seconds to hide, drive over hills and mountains so that they cant see you.

 

 

Some other tips: In some cases its good to escape on foot as well, so that you could run in between houses or that they only find your car in an alley and not you, etc.

 

Edit: @Richy, cheats hinder you from getting 100% in any GTA game. He may not have completed SP yet...

Use the map to your benefit. Look for alleyways and avoid the highways.

This game is too easy to get away from the cops, Just get as far away from them as you can, hide down a alley get out of the car that's what their searching for , run a little bit away from the car hide n wait a few minutes your wanted level will disappear simple

Wow, you must be having a terrible time. Anything under 3 stars is piss easy to escape. The fact that it's now based on line of sight & sound, makes it a lot fairer & more tactical. Once they've got you in their sights though, they are pretty dangerous. love the new wanted system.

Make lots of turns, go into alleys, go into parking garages, etc. Just stay off the main streets as much as possible, and stay out of their sight.

 

You don't have to keep moving either. Sometimes slipping into an alley and staying still does the trick.

What cop cheat, all i know is the wanted level up/down cheat, not a no police cheat :(

 

Thats good if u want to mess around with the prison or military base or just walk the airport :p

Pretty sure that's what he meant. Would be cool if there was a no wanted level cheat though. Would have a blast.

The cops can sometimes be hard to get away from, if they close the distance and start shooting, you're in trouble.

 

Once you break line of sight (The radar stops flashing red and blue, and vision cones appear) hide in an allyway. Press R1 (ps3) to lean up against a wall behind cover and they shouldn't find you. Eventually the wanted level will disappear.

Many don't know this but the little arrow in your mini map that represents the player changes color to help evade cops. I think black means your ok and they are not looking and white means they are looking and know what type of car you are driving. This also helps before committing a crime. If the arrow is black you will most likely be safe to get away with a crime. Again white would mean cops are watching.

If you're in the open country and you have a chopper on your, just drive and attempt to get to a place where you go under something.

 

Helis in the country is pretty hard to escape unless you just use pure speed to get away

No one cares if you figured it out after your first chase. No one cares if its easy to you. Not everything that's easy to you is easy to someone else. Give the guy a break, help him out, not criticize the guy.
