There are mailmen that spawn around the city, placing/collecting mail into/from those blue mailboxes. Pretty rare sight but you can (easily?) find one hanging between Little Italy and Star Junction.

I've seen them most often in Bohan (Northern Gardens and near the train station just above Chase Point), and I saw one in Beechwood City near the pool cafe. I also once saw one in Schottler near the hospital wearing a Russian hat!!! Still not sure how that happened. Definitely very rare though. I love them because when they fight you they speak in all mailman related comments lol (like "I'm going to stamp you" "here comes a special delivery" etc)

I know I seen these guys before cause I remember seeing one run away after I blew up an FIB vehicle. A rare predestrain indeed. Have only seen these mailmen NPC's at least a couple times. Might go for a hunt now, lol.

Only just noticed that there's a Burger Shot counter in the bowling alley where you can buy food. And also that you can mess with ped's bowling games by standing in front of the ball knocking it into the gutter or across to another lane, or shooting the bowling pins. Shows how much I go bowling lol.

 

Also recently noticed that when your car hits something/gets hit and it makes Niko jolt forwards, sometimes he grabs his nose afterwards like he hit it on the dashboard. 

 

Best thing I noticed: you can knock ped's (including cops) guns out of their hands with a baseball bat or by standing close and hitting them with a gun. If you do this to a cop without hurting them badly enough that they're on the ground/stumbling away, they'll start fist fighting you. Obviously results in death a lot since it means going right up to someone as they're shooting at you but fun to try.

not sure if i mentioned before but i had police on me. about 8 cops. I run in an alleyway which had a straight line and a side part in the middle with a skip.

 

The cops saw me enter the alleyway but they didn't see me jump into the skip. When the cops entered the alleyway, they all ran straight ahead. Don't know if it was a glitch because i no longer have the game to test again but it wowed me

That's awesome, I knew they sometimes can't find you when you're hiding (particularly good when you can hear them making comments about it from your hiding place haha) but didn't know a skip was a good enough hiding place for it.

 

Reminded me that if you're in a skip and they DO know you're in there they can and will climb into the skip and start shooting you (if you don't shoot them first). I was in one on one of those water platforms in Bohan thinking it was a pretty good place for a police shoot out since they have trouble hitting you when you're in there, then they started climbing in lol

Used to do this a lot years ago. For all three games. Would make Packie, Roman or Dwyane's body guards stand in the middle of the NPC's game while they kept losing as the bowling ball kept flying somewhere else or always landing on the wrong lanes lol. Same with Armando and Henrique. Also having shootouts in the bowling alleys are about as much fun as it can get. Block the door so no sorts of cops get in and just take every pedestrian hostage and watch them run around in panic mode, lmao.

Great :lol:. I've mostly ignored the bowling alleys until now for some reason, pretty much always just popped in for a game and left. Sounds like a good place to have some fun.

There's a large portrait of Derrick McReary on the wall inside the Irish pubs

 

I love the knocking guns out of people's hands with a bat/other gun thing lol. As I'm sure has already been mentioned you can also shoot them out (but it's harder to do that without killing them). Noticed something else when I knocked a shotgun out of a cop's hand with a bat the other day - he pulled out a pistol and started shooting me with that instead! I think other peds with shotguns can have backup pistols too, and also peds can have both a knife/bat and a gun. Can peds can be armed with more than one weapon in any other GTAs? Aside from cops having a nightstick and gun in certain ones (eg Vice City) I can't remember it.

I suggest riding a bike into the bowling alley and really mess with them.😉

- No matter what, in the first mission of the game, Roman's cab lights never turn off. Also, car's way slower in this mission

 

- You can enter closed buildings with interiors by putting Niko between the door and a bike (works better with the NRG), vault over it (Square bottom) and erase the action (Triangle button). He will noclip inside

HOW'S ANNIE?

Police officers won't shoot at/act hostile towards paramedics and firefighters. Played around a bit last night with a group of 10+ firefighters chasing me and baited one into hitting an officer. The cop strolled on his mery way, whereas any other citizen would have had an entire clip unloaded into them.

I don't know if this was a glitch, but just a few days ago, a speeding driver bumped into me while I was walking on a sidewalk. He stopped his car for a while, but without getting out of it like NPCs in the game normally do. He drove off in a few seconds.

Nah, it's completely normal, I had it happen too. At times they also ramble that the road is theirs and to get off.

what is this sh*t my car?!

 

-Brucie called for bowling and i accepted then packie called for a drink, niko got hit by a car and the game accepted his drink wish lol. i had to call him back to decline because brucie was the first who called and i was just about to pick him up...i didn’t know two may call at the same time

-best glitch ever: i crashed into this random npc’s car and him and his car started burning, the guy pulled himself out of the car and kept burning for like five seconds, he didn’t die instead got up and said something about niko’s bloody ass. after like 20 more seconds the car exploded, i’ll remember this moment :)

-i don’t know if this was a glitch or not. i was just playing the mission where derrick wants niko to kill bucky and his goons. after the chase i used explosives in front of the house to kill the guys, as soon as i used them i got wanted level and failed the mission becuase i couldn’t deal with the cops and the goons at the same time. when replaying it this time without explosives no cops showed up until i killed the last guy in the house

-in the mission where francis orders you to kill a dealer with a sniper rifle, i waited a little long and tried to figure out his phone number with the scope of the rifle. francis called and asked niko if the job is done while niko was still on the roof. niko said the guy’s probably sitting or something and not coming to the window, then francis said niko to find something to make the guy show up before hanging the phone

-sabre turbo makes that same sound as in gta 5 if you add a car turbo modification in los santos customs

Wow, I didn't know this is even possible!

 

I also heard that it's possible to set up activities with more than a friend by yourself, but I haven't tried that yet.

You can, girlfriends too. Once you meet up with one of them the map marker for the other one (or more) disappears, but if you do the hang out really quick it's possible it'll still be there afterwards and you can make it to it late.

Just played the game and decided to set up drinking dates with all my friends and call all my girlfriends and then just ignore them all and wait for angry texts lol, pointless but there's something amusing about calling them all in a row 

 

Don't remember if I posted this here before but when you're listening to the radio in a car in the game and your phone is about to ring you hear static/interference on the radio right before like in real life (or at least like back in the time the game came out when that used to happen more).

 

As well as the thing where friends/girlfriends/other characters you drive with will comment if their favourite radio station comes on, it's also possible for some girlfriends (don't know about friends or others) to make negative comments. I don't know if this is the only example or not but I'd heard Alex didn't like Integrity 2.0 and would complain about it, never managed to get her to do it though so I didn't believe it, assumed it was cut from the game or incorrect info. But today I was randomly sitting in a car with her listening to it for a bit and she complained about it being sh*t lol

I can't believe I'm still running across alternate cutscenes! I was messing around playing She's a Keeper last night, I'd seen how it fails if the car gets wrecked/flipped or Gracie died from it exploding or going in the river or being shot or if you let the enemies steal the car with her inside etc. Just a fail with a follow up phone call from Packie if she dies or no call if it fails another way.

 

I thought the only thing left to do was complete the mission. Nope! I'd noticed the car had got pretty bashed up as I drove up to the marker to meet Packie but thought nothing of it, expected the cutscene with the trunk being opened and furious Gracie inside like usual. Instead we opened the trunk only for Packie to announce that she's dead from a broken neck and berate me for my bad driving :lol:. Looks like you can't drive too recklessly.

 

I love how they did that, having you drive to the marker thinking you've completed the mission successfully and surprising you in the cutscene instead of just having "Gracie died" popping up whenever you knocked the car too hard. Amazed again by the level of thought and detail that went into this game.

In the mission Weekend at Florian's for some reason if you get your phone out while Talbot is giving you directions a message pops up saying "Put your phone away and listen to Talbot". There's not actually any penalty for not putting it away but I found this amusing. 

 

Also in that mission you can drive pretty far ignoring his directions and he'll keep trying to get you to go the right way. Didn't test it that thoroughly but I believe the limit is Algonquin, since when I tried to drive to Bohan it said he's lost and the mission failed. Edit: Played again and he got lost/mission failed when I drove to Chinatown. So not sure what the limits are.

 

And again in that mission, once you drive to Bernie's house and the marker is there you can kill Talbot before you go in the marker if you want and it doesn't fail the mission. Niko explains this to Roman by saying he needed some practice before he deals with Florian lol. There's a different phone call to Ray afterwards as well, Niko explaining that Talbot won't be able to pay Ray the money he owes him now.

I remember back in the day I had issues with differentiating left and right (don't go into details please) and add on to the fact that my English knowledge was mediocre, I ended up once by the Burger Shot in the Meat Quarter, and the other time I ended up in Alderney by the helipad lol. I completed it later thanks to a friend who was over at my place and he helped me out in picking the right direction.

What's funny is that the Triad goons in TLAD (and TBOGT too iirc) that are set to only appear in missions, have the same statistics as AOD Deadbeats and not regular Triads. Later on in CTW it's also revealed that the AOD and Triads have a working relationship.

in one of the assasination missions today i did(it may be the first or third one) there was also a female target. i thougt niko never got to kill a female. strange thing, is the red blip on radar didn’t disappear for her even though she was lying dead dropped her assault rifle. i shot her body a few times more with an smg so the red blip was gone and mission was completed.

I never knew until someone brought it up here before that you can buy food from a food stand exterior on the boardwalk in Firefly Island. Walked up to the guy and purchased a burger. Since 2008 I’ve never know about that. lol
