Cool Things You Didn't Know About GTA IV

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.

Can confirm it also works with thrown dildos from the sex shop in Hove Beach, LOL!! I was way to close to the damn gas pump so I instantly died and flew in mid air, lmaoo.

 

Nice :lol:, this is now on my to do list

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.

I recently noticed that if you hit an electric pole with a car, sparks will come out of it for a few seconds.

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.😉
