- In GTA III, hijacking particular cars, hitting particular cars, and destroying vehicles and aircraft will grant the player varying sums of money. However, from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City onwards, this feature is absent, possibly to increase realism

-Dead Skunk in the Trunk (killing the Forelli mobsters that chase you during mission will give you $10000 bonus each)

- Weather in GTA III is predetermined. The order of the weather is this: sunny → cloudy → rainy → cloudy → sunny → cloudy → foggy → cloudy → sunny → cloudy → sunny → cloudy → rainy → cloudy → rainy → cloudy → sunny → foggy → sunny → rainy → cloudy. After that it goes back to the beginning of the list and starts the cycle again.(thanks to spaceeinstein)

- If you do taxi missions in Shoreside Vale, you get paid double the money for crossing the same distance comparing to Portland/Staunton.

Spoiler

It's actually in the game code:

Credits to spaceeinstein.

 

- When you pass the second mission by Marty Chonks (The Thieves) the message says 'Mission Complete! 3000$' (but you get 2000$) and when you pass the third mission (The Wife) the message says 'Mission Complete! 2000$' (but you get 3000$). It's the messages that are wrong because Marty Chonks payments increase with 1000$ per mission (1000$, 2000$, 3000$ and 4000$ after 'Her Lover') (thanks to stef_92)

- If the player gets a "Vigilante Bonus" of 10 (10 kills in a row) on the Vigilante mission, Claude will get out of jail for free the next time he's arrested. (thanks to thehambone)

 

- You can crash the game by turning dodo-plane too hard 

Spoiler

 

 

- Also if you aim at a criminal, who has robbed somebody, so that he sees you, he will drop money on the ground: (thanks to Nick007J)

Spoiler

 

 

- In Plaster Blaster, if you blow up the ambulance before ramming it, you will get a message saying that it was a decoy. (thanks to Skayz)

- Like the crusher crane, the EV crane also generates sound when lifting vehicles. This may be impossible to experience without external assistance. It is so high up that you normally can't hear it. (thanks to spaceeinstein)

No worries about it, amigo. Hell, it was quite a nice feature. Shame they didn't really implement it into any other III era games and by the time they sorta did that with IV and V, you barely noticed it.

The Indian taxi driver doesn't always drive the taxi. I've seen the ped with the blue Hawaiian shirt driving a taxi on rare occasions. Just a little gem that gives the game a bit more variety.

actually it is possible to unlock this feature on ps2 with a cheat (this screen is from an actual ps2 gameplay, just look at the grey-ish weapon HUD...on PC it's yellow)

The blue Hawaiian shirt guy doesn't have the headphones, the black dude with the green jacket and ball cap does.

I always though that sound was someone with a heavy wallet. Never noticed it was always the same ped.

 

And those sex shops closing during day are a nice detail too. Even if they say "Open 24 hours" when open.

Some interesting things I found out in past few months/years:

 

-You can get into the car crusher with your car, then you will get wasted with 100 health and your body disappears along with the car.

-Something I noticed years ago on Vice City (it applies on GTA 3 too) is that entering a coach will make you "invisible", meaning instead of being somewhere inside car, you disappear completely when you are driving a coach. Which explains why coach can carry unlimited people. This can be observed with "wheels only" cheat.

-When I first played GTA 3, I noticed the carjacker guy sometimes punches other pedestrians and he runs away or fights back.

-A few months ago when I registered on forum, someone (I think it was Jeansowaty?) told me that it IS possible to increase the health above 100 in GTA 3, up to 125. Although many of you already knew about that, I didn't (although I did know about that trick in later games). I never used the trick myself and I consider it pretty useless. I mean, isn't enough having 100 health and 100 armor? :p

 

That's all. If I find more later, I will edit post.

Yes it was me, tovarăș :)Also about that healthboost trick, using an open top car (Stinger, Stallion) will make the additional 25 add up in one second, without the car bumping and all.

Can't believe it took me so long to discover, found this today. When you keep pressing F1 (replay button) when driving Taxi, Taxi sign on roof will time to time change (there are two variants as you all sure know). Btw. I play on PC, don't know if this works on consoles too.

 

It doesn't. Seems like quite a nice find, though. I remember reading that hitting the replay button and watching said replay, it'll make your car look different compared to how it was in the original capture, like a convertible stallion may have a roof and vice versa.

I think the thugs are pickpocketing, because once they walk away you can see a little animation that looks like they're flipping through notes

Holy sh*t, that's news to me. I knew of the carjackers, but not pickpockets.
