Cool Things You Didn't Know About GTA IV

Recommended Posts

PhillBellic

 

- Niko's last name, Belli ( c ) means "war" in latin.

The "Belli" thing is pointless, it's just the Anglicised version of Belić which in Serbian means something like "Whiteson", "White" or something like that, it doesn't directly mean white, but it's like making a surname out of the word "white".

 

E:

I forgot to mention, I have 4 GTA IVs

ESlrMci.jpg

Do I win anything?

 

I have that same game copy set up. Do you still have the cardboard sleeve thay came with 'vanilla' GTA IV?

 

Cheers.

In the online modes, it is possible to spot a random pedestrian holding a pistol. The pedestrian, however, will be oblivious to the fact that they are holding a pistol and will not use it against you if attacked.

 

I've seen them a few times while doing the swing glitch with my friend and in various other places.

I remember me and my friend were playing a private free roam match and goofing around in Star Junction. My friend was in Burger Shot and two Russian mobsters came in with assault rifles and started shooting at him. If I hadn't seen their bodies, I wouldn't have believed him.

This is not a surprise, but Niko can sometimes act negative or positive when buying clothes for him.

Yep, I keep it somewhere else in case it gets torn, though.

 

-The Mr Tasty icecream van jingle plays faster the faster you drive.

It also plays in reverse when you drive reverse. :p

- Streetlights and even some trees move in the wind during a thunderstorm.

 

- Niko has dialogue for each street in Liberty City when directing a cab driver, unlike in GTA V where the protagonists only name in which district they want to go.

 

- Michelle doesn't drink on dates, and judging by Niko's comments spikes his drinks to get information out of him.

 

- In First Date, Niko mentions how some of Michelle's furniture still has tags on it. This is foreshadowing her betrayal, and showing that it's just a temporary government apartment.

 

- The United Liberty Paper Company is a front for the IAA, as revealed in GTA V.

 

- Alex's blog indicates that Niko has a large...appendage.

 

- Certain peds can survive incredible damage. Once, I shot a Jamaican twice in the chest with a shotgun, point blank, and he was still alive on the ground.

 

- In Bleed Out, Niko has different responses depending on how you deal with Dardan. If you knock him out, Niko will say "That's what we owe you, Dardan. Nothing else". If you kill him by Sparta kicking him out the window, Niko will throw his arms up and say "I promised myself I wouldn't kill people here!". If you disarm him and stab him with his own knife, Niko will laugh and say "You shouldn't play with sharp objects, Dardan." If you get lucky and manage to perform a drive-by on Dardan before he runs up the stairs, Roman will say "Wow! Thank you cousin. Where did you get a gun?".

 

- The injury system was awesome.

 

Seriously, it was. I just encountered this today; I was playing Bleed Out again, and was at the point where I had to confront Dardan. I ran up unarmed against his knife, but got lucky and punched him square in the face. He went down immediately despite having full health, and I grabbed his knife and walked away with Niko satisfied with not killing him. As I stepped onto the outdoor catwalk of the factory with a view of the Humboldt River, I stopped for a second to look at the sunset and Dardan came limping from nowhere, walking by me. As he did, he said "You broke my arm already, man!" and faltered away. There was a small gap in the metal fence that looked to the Humboldt, and of all places he went right into that gap. He fell, screaming. I ran up to the gap in time to see him slam onto the edge of the concrete, then spiral into the river, dead.

 

T'was epic.

Nice story! The first time I killed Dardan was with molotovs I found near the factory - epic as it was the very first time I played.

 

I do not know if it have already been mentioned here but you can hear pedestrians talk in German or having a German and French accent. During the opening cut-scene, when Niko gets out of the Platipus, a man bumps into Niko and says "entschuldigung" afterwards, meaning sorry of course. Once I was runing on the pavement when a lady shouted "Oh my God" in a very French accent.

There are people from many other countries too... look around Hove Beach to hear some polish women say "Przepraszam!" ;)

If you activate and reactivate the Mr Tasty jingle, Different songs will play, including Gta Iv Theme.

If you call Zit when the Theme plays, Health cheat activates and certain trophies/achievements are disabled.

-After a grenade explodes there'll be a ringing sound.

-Sometimes during death sequences guns may discharge from hitting a solid surface.

-For some reason when playing darts with Michelle her name isn't listed on the dart board. It just says "opponent". Unsure if this is the case with all girlfriends.

And if you drive the Mr. Tasty in reverse while playing a jingle, it will play in reverse. Also, the more damaged the Mr. Tasty is, the more distorted the jingle will sound.

The same bums will also reference the Reptillian conspiracy.

In Broker near the swingset glitch (I don't remember the exact street), you can find a pair of shoes dangling from a telephone wire.

The game was released about 6 years ago and is still a great deal of fun.

 

But seriously hadn't seen this posted though, Im sure you probably all know..

 

You can squeeze the right trigger half way to increase the accuracy of your initial burst. It will cause the reticule to become momentarily smaller, particularly useful in free aim.

If you do this in multiplayer while playing as a female character, pressing the "action/talk" button will make your character utter some unique phrases. Some that I can remember off of the top of my head are "Look at the birdie!" and "I've got you in my sights!"

- Well I just found out today if you honk your bike's horn (somehow) while pack-riding in TLaD, all the other bikers in formation will honk their horns crazily and let out "LOST MC! LOST MC!" battle cries.

 

- Claude's outfit, only available at Playboy's apartment, is actually just the dead Armenian's motorcycle jacket retextured black, you can faintly see the outline of the eagle-thingie on it.

 

- Tom Goldberg's original name was intended to be "Tom Jackson" to parody the over-zealous lawyer, "Jack Thomson", who had been attempting to sue past Rockstar titles. Though the name was changed for the game's release, you can still find "tomjackson" in the game files.

 

- If you jump off the Statue of Happiness a hundred times, a jetpack will spawn in each safehouse. I hope some morons actually try this.

- Police officers have the name ''John Grimes'' written on their nametags

 

- FIB agents were ment to have more accessories such as hats and glasses.

 

 

I actually believe it reads John James. It's hard to make out though so it could really be anything.

 

Anyway, the FiB agents do have those accessories, Rockstar just never set them to actually use them. Same with the cops, both fit and fat. Although the cops use hats, they never use their glasses or the fat LEO's their watches. Custo released a fix for it.

 

Also, not really a cool thing I found, but a discovery anyway. Turns out the game doesn't have a timer between fit and fat cops. The fat cops tend to appear more because it takes less memory for the game to load them up than the fit cops which have far more variaton. I noticed this when I replaced the string for fat cops with another and the fit cops were more prone to begin spawning. The police cruiser and patrol are still on a timer, however.

If you play as the cops in cops and crooks, and proceed to do this trick, the police players will also use their "target" speeches. "I've got him!" "I got you in my sights!"

 

 

 

 

- When an officer happens to step just right into your wanted zone without seeing you he will take out his radio and be informed of the situation, briefly after that he will unholster his sidearm.

 

I wish, but I'm fairly certain that was a coincidence, for they do their walkie talkie animations by random unless on alert and engaging in a chase/manhunt. They won't touch it then.

The cops will not shoot or arrest you whilst you're purchasing a hotdog. They also won't shoot or arrest you whilst you're selecting a destination in a taxi.

-Look closely into some of the shop windows. You can see real-life products, such as Cheez-Its in the window displays.

 

-The Governor Greg Johnson Projects have signs calling it Harmony Heights Secure Community Housing. This could be a beta name, or just an oversight.

 

-Some intersections have both stoplights and stopsigns at the same intersection.

 

-One shop has a missing window frame, leaving a gap where you can see into blue hell. I can't remember if this was in Dukes or Algonquin.

 

-The spinning radar at the airport can be stood on. There is an invisible floor above it, so you can't spin around (unfortunately).

 

-Driving a Tug onto land causes a lag fest. This is fun to do in multiplayer and piss everyone off with.

 

-In my previous post about the disappearing bus stop, this works with other guns as well. Here's a video for proof: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TSXlLKUkPp8

 

This might imply that bus stops once had damaged models?

 

-Armando Torres' name translates to "Building Towers"

If Niko has a prostitute with him when he goes on a date with Carmen, Carmen will toss her out onto the street and not say anything to Niko about it.

 

If Niko pulls out his phone at The Triangle Club, the guards will confront him.

 

The dancers at The Triangle Club will start screaming and will run out the club if Niko walks too close to the main stage.

You don't have to pay a toll if you are passing the kiosk in a police car. If you drive through it with high speed in a police car with sirens turned on, you don't get wanted level.

 

If some song is playingin a shop or a Burger Shot or wherever it playing in a whole game, for example if you hear a song on the radio in a shop and then you get in a car, the exact song is playing in a car ;)

Nice thread! After all those years, I still love GTA IV. It's nice to see that other people still do too.

 

- In the mission Smackdown, you have to kill someone named Bucky Sligo for Derrick. After you chase him down to his hideout, you can get inside. There's a Love Fist poster in one of the rooms (it's the same artwork from GTA VC).

- Before the game was released, the russian clothing shop was actually Binco. Must have been changed very late in development; there's a leftover texture inside the game files, and once I logged into Social Club to see my GTA IV stats and it said that my favorite clothing shop was Binco. Don't know if it is still there, though.

- I guess stuff like this is common knowledge for those who were excited for the game a few years ago, but whatever: early previews of the game mentioned the ability to climb light poles. The soundtrack also went through several changes, and songs mentioned in previews were never head in the final game.

- You can get inside the building you take Roman to in the mission It's Your Call (here's a picture from the wiki so you don't have to take the dust off the game just to check this out)

- In the mission Bleed Out, Roman is attacked by some thugs, and the last one runs away to an old building near the docks. This is hard to do, but if you manage to somehow push him through the window, a short cutscene plays out showing the thug falling into the water and Niko saying that "[he] had promised not to kill anyone [t]here".

 

I'll try to remember more

If you shoot or get shot in a tire of a car it will loose air in it and if you will drive slow enough, the tire will not drop off a wheel ;)

When you stole a car for Brucie and Niko goes out of his garage, pay attention to the street because the same model of car/bike you have just delivered would randomly appear 1/2 time with a pedestrian driving it.

No matter how far away you are from the last car that you've driven, it still remains there until you get behind the wheel of another car.

 

I found this out over a year ago but I tried it out two days ago, on accident, and it was successful. I was still chasing the same bus that I had been chasing all of the way from Francis International Airport to President City, Algonquin in my beloved, light green Inventero Coquette. I was sifting through my phone for the health cheat but hit "SIXASIS" on accident. My car was too good to lose so I exited SIXASIS and walked all of the way from the airport to my car. And it was still sitting there, in the middle of the road near the Rheinlander Hotel, with a banged up headlight.

 

Impressive. Its a shame that it doesn't work like this in V and even if it did, that threaded impound system would cause the abandoned car to despawn.

I always thought that was pretty cool. I noticed that back in GTA III; the game keeps 2 of your cars in memory while you're playing: the one you're driving and the last one you were driving. I never noticed this in IV though, perhaps I just steal too many cars :p Edited by thehambone
