    Started the RC Super-Jump FAQ and kept on hoping that when ever a “Found A 
    New Glitch” topic came along that it wouldn’t be about the RC Super-Jump.
    Thankfully it wasn’t.  Phew!

    This is my first FAQ and I’m hoping to write many more FAQs for GTA3 and 
    GTA: Vice City.  This is really meant to be only one of those Mini-FAQs but 
    it somehow morphed into a huge one with eleven pages! Dunno how that 
    happened...
    Any way, lets get on with this.

    1. A BRIEF INTRODUCTION
    Now I bet all of you out there are wondering, “What the heck is the RC 
    Super-Jump?!” or “What are you on about?!” and so on.
    The RC Super-Jump where your RC car is launched in to the air, spinning 
    madly.  If you do it correctly you can jump higher than small buildings (you 
    cant really jump as high as the skyscrapers like in Staunton Island, but 
    much higher than the buildings in Portland).
    Basically you need to run over a dead person (certain cheats must be on, 
    I’ll mention them later) your RC car will launch very high into the air.  So 
    far I have landed on top of buildings in Portland and in Staunton Island I 
    have landed on op of Kenji’s Casino, see how far YOU can get!!
    
    ***************************************************
    ***************************************************
    2. WHAT IS AN RC CAR?
    I know it’s pretty obvious what it is but I’ll just explain to fill some 
    room.  The RC car is a Remote Control car that has a detonator built inside. 
      When you press the CIRCLE button (Or what ever your shoot button is) the 
    Remote Control car will explode.  When you are driving one of these you will 
    have two minutes to carry out a certain mission.  All of these missions you 
    will have to blow up as many gang cars (it will tell you the type of gang) 
    as you can whilst keeping inside the time limit.  For every gang car you 
    blow up, it will add up at the end of the mission and give you $1000 for 
    each gang car blown up.  For example; lets say I was doing the RC mission 
    ‘Diablo Destruction’ and I blew up 3 Diablo gang cars (Diablo Stallions) I 
    would get $3000 at the end of the mission…
    There are four of these missions dotted around Liberty City.  They are:
    
    PORTLAND:
    Diablo Destruction
    Mafia Massacre
    
    Staunton Island:
    Casino Calamity
    
    Shoreside Vale:
    Rumpo Rampage
    
    These Remote Control Car missions are only found in a certain type of van, 
    which is called TOYZ.  The Van is blue, kinda looks like a PONY van but 
    smaller.  On the side of the van it says: “Toyz n’ The Hood”.
    
    
    ***************************************************
    ***************************************************
    3. WHAT YOU MIGHT NEED
    For this super jump you will need certain things.  For some reason it will 
    only work with the Extra Handling cheat activated.  The Crazy Pedestrians 
    cheat is just for more dead people to run over so that it is more likely 
    that you will perform the Super-Jump.   Here is the complete list of what 
    you will need:
    WARNING!!
    DO NOT SAVE THIS CHEATS!!!!! (Courtesy of MajinVegeta7482)
    
    -> An RC car (I will say the locations in the next section)
    -> Improved driving skills
    While playing a game, press R1, L1, R2, L1, Left, R1(2), Triangle.
    
    -> Pedestrians riot
    While playing a game, press Down, Up, Left, Up, X, R1, R2, L2, L1.
    
    -> Pedestrians’ crazy
    While playing a game, press R2, R1, Triangle, X, L2, L1, Up, Down.
    
    -> Increased gore
    While playing a game, press Square, L1, Circle, Down, L1, R1, Triangle, 
    Right, L1, X. NOTE: There will be no code confirmation for this cheat.  
    You’ll just have to use an M16 or Sniper Rifle on someone head or something 
    to see if it comes off.
    I don’t think that you need the Gore cheat, but you might as well, for a 
    laugh…
    
    NOTE: The Pedestrian Riot cheat and the Pedestrian Crazy cheat will make 
    everyone try to kill each other using a lovely variety of weapons! 
    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!

    4. LOCATIONS
    Since you need the RC car for this jump, you’ll need to be able to find one. 
      This is where this section comes in handy.
    There are four RC missions dotted around Liberty City.  There are two in 
    Portland (Diablo Destruction and Mafia Massacre), One in Staunton Island 
    (Casino Calamity) and one in Shoreside Vale (Rumpo Rampage).  I will say the 
    location of it (i.e. St.Marks) and how to get there, starting from the 
    nearest landmark closest to it (i.e. Casino Calamity, go to Kenji’s Casino 
    and then face north…)
    So, the locations for all of these missions are:
    
                                   ---===PORTLAND===---
    
    District: Portland
    Mission: Diablo Destruction
    Location: Hepburn Heights
    Directions: First, head over to the Hepburn Railway Station (if you don’t 
    know where that is, try taking the train that travels round Portland.)  You 
    will see some steps in front of you (if you’re facing NORTH that is…).  Walk 
    up to those steps but don’t walk up them.  Instead walk past them and carry 
    on walking until you come up to a barrier blocking you’re way.  If you turn 
    LEFT you should see the blue van (The TOYZ Van).  If you don’t see it then 
    simply drive round the block and go back there.  To activate the mission 
    simply go into the TOYZ Van.  Once inside you can drive you’re very own 
    Remote Control car  =D.
    
    
    District: Portland
    Mission: Mafia Massacre
    Location: St.Marks
    Directions:  Drive over to Toni’s restaurant (for those of you who don’t 
    know Toni, use your map to drive over to “Mama’s Restaurant”).  Once there 
    face EAST, so that you are looking at the car park or restaurant itself.  
    Then, if you look behind you, you should see the TOYZ van, head over to it.  
    To activate the mission get into the TOYZ Van (Press Triangle, or whatever 
    you Enter Car button is).  If it is not there go round the block and come 
    back to that spot.
    
    
                                   ---===Staunton Island===---
    
    
    District: Staunton Island
    Mission: Casino Calamity
    Location: Torrington
    Directions: Head over to Kenji’s Casino.  Once there face and go NORTH.  
    Turn at the first LEFT and STOP.  To your LEFT you will see a small sort of 
    ally-way.  Follow the sort of ally-way and when it turns RIGHT you should 
    see the TOYZ Van.  If it is not there go round the block and come back to 
    that spot.
    
    
    
                                   ---===Shoreside Vale===---
    
    District: Shoreside Vale
    Mission: Rumpo Rampage
    Location: Wichita Gardens
    Directions: Head over to your Shoreside Hideout.  Go behind the long garage 
    where your weapons should be (if you’ve been collecting those Hidden 
    Packages that is; see Hidden Package FAQ).  Once behind the long garage 
    follow the barrier, which is blocking you from the road.  You should then 
    see the TOYZ Van (there is a Hidden Package behind it).  If it is not there 
    (grab the hidden package) go round the block and come back to that spot.

    ***************************************************
    5.  THE METHOD
    OK, you know what an RC car is, you about to get in the TOYZ Van and you’ve 
    got your cheats handy, now you need the METHOD.  You won’t get anywhere if 
    you have no idea how to perform the RC Super-Jump, once you read this, YOU 
    WILL!!
    OK, I will give you a step-by-step guide on how to perform the RC 
    Super-Jump:
    
    -> Improved driving skills
    While playing a game, press R1, L1, R2, L1, Left, R1(2), Triangle.
    
    -> Pedestrians riot
    While playing a game, press Down, Up, Left, Up, X, R1, R2, L2, L1.
    
    -> Pedestrians’ crazy
    While playing a game, press R2, R1, Triangle, X, L2, L1, Up, Down.
    
    -> Increased gore
    While playing a game, press Square, L1, Circle, Down, L1, R1, Triangle, 
    Right, L1, X. NOTE: There will be no code confirmation for this cheat.  
    You’ll just have to use an M16 or Sniper Rifle on someone head or something 
    to see if it comes off.
    NOTE:  YOU MUST HAVE THE DRIVING SKILLS AND PEDESTRIAN CHEATS ON!!!!!
    
    -> Go into any TOYZ Van to activate the mission.
    
    -> With the Crazy Pedestrians cheat and Pedestrians Riot cheat activated 
    there will be lots and lots of dead people to run over (Without those two 
    codes it will not work, even if you find a dead person)
    
    -> Once you see a dead person drive the RC car over them.  You should be 
    launched pretty high into the air. On the odd dead pedestrians sometimes 
    will not work but with everyone else it will work.
    
    See, it’s not THAT hard now is it?  =D

    6. TIPS AND HINTS
                         ---===FOR THE RC SUPER JUMP===---
    Here are a few things to look out for when doing the RC Super-Jump and how 
    to improve it.
    Look out for people with these Weapons:
    Shotguns
    Rocket Launchers
    Petrol Bombs
    Flame Throwers
    Grenades
    This is because they can kill a group of people very quickly.
    
    People with Pistols and Uzi’s tend not to actually kill people.  Also, if 
    you see the same type of person killing trying to kill each other (i.e. 
    Yakuza trying killing another Yakuza, or an Old Women trying to kill another 
    Old Women) forget about them.  They will not kill each other...at all.
    
    I have found, though I’m not entirely sure, that if you go slower than the 
    Top Speed of the RC Car when running over a dead body, that it should go 
    higher than usual.  That’s how I got onto Kenji’s Casino anyway...
    However, if you go too slowly when running a dead body over, the RC Car will 
    not jump at all.
    
    If you are doing the RC Super-Jump in Staunton Island (Casino Calamity) make 
    sure you get out of the small area that you start off in STRAGIHT AWAY!!  
    Other wise the crazy pedestrians will blow up your TOYZ Van will blow up and 
    you will lose the mission.
    
    If you let go of X (or whatever you’re Sprint/Acceleration button is) just 
    before you are about to run over a dead person I have found that you 
    sometimes go higher.
    
                          ---===FOR GENERAL RC MISSIONS===---
    Stay in the gang’s territory.  Although the gang cars should spawn anywhere 
    you are there should be more if you stay in that gang’s territory.
    
    If the RC Car hits any vehicle the RC Car will blow up.  This will give you 
    less time as it might hit the wrong vehicle’s wheels.  Its OK if the RC Car 
    hits the wheels.
    
    Go for multiple blow-ups.  If you see two or more gang cars together, blow 
    them up at the same time!
    
    If you only set the car on fire (about to blow up) and it doesn’t blow up 
    when the camera can see it wont count.
    
    Make it look good!  Other wise it’s just boring!  See if you can flip the 
    cars onto the pavement, onto other cars and if you get a chance, blow up 
    some cop cars!  BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!!

    7. NEED ANY HELP
    Want that bit of extra help?  Will the RC Super-Jump not work?  Then welcome 
    to the Help section of this FAQ!  Also, if you want to ask me any questions 
    about the RC Super-Jump please E-Mail me or add me on MSN at 
    crash_overide5@hotmail.com and I will try to answer your questions.
    
    Q: Whenever I run over a dead person nothing happens.
    A: Are you sure the pedestrian is actually dead?  Sometimes they can just be 
    shook by a shockwave from a grenade or Rocket Launcher.  Make there is blood 
    coming from them and their heads or limbs have come off (only with grenades 
    or Rocket Launcher).
    
    Q: Nope, they are defiantly dead.  What’s happened?!
    A: Ah, then you’ve hit that odd chance that it won’t work for that certain 
    pedestrian.  Just find some other dead body and run that over.
    If it is still not working then you haven’t entered in the Better Handling 
    cheat properly.  Make sure that it says CHEAT ACTIVATED in the top left hand 
    corner once you’ve entered it.
    
    Q: My RC Car isn’t going that high.  How can I make the car go much higher?
    A: Well I’m not sure on this, but if you make your car go slower than Top 
    Speed (but not too slow) the RC Car can sometimes go pretty high.  However 
    if you go TOO slowly the RC car will not jump up at all.
    
    Q. The TOYZ Van isn’t there.  Where on earth is it?!?!
    A: Drive round the block.  If that doesn’t work, then drive round two 
    blocks.  For some reason sometimes it will not be there but if you give it 
    time to load, then the TOYZ Van will be there.
    
    Q:  Grrrr! Two Minutes is just not enough!  Is there a cheat to get more 
    time?
    A: Well, yes actually! There is a GameShark code to get infinite time.
    
    (Courtesy of Slipknot2)
    1CBE0B18 15F6E79D
    1CBE0B1C 1456E7A5
    
    Or if you don’t have a GameShark (like me :P) the closest cheat I can find 
    for Infinite Time is the Slo-Mo code.  Here it is:
    
    Slo-Mo Code
    Triangle, up, right, down, square, L1, L2
    
    
    Q: Why do you keep on calling to the RC Super-Jump?
    A: I suppose many of you have heard of the Super Jump where you can jump 
    from Portland to Staunton Island.  I don’t want the Super Jump creators 
    getting angry at me because I think what they found was really cool and I 
    don’t want you guys reading this getting mixed up with this super jump and 
    their super jump.
    I don’t think I’m at liberty to tell you about their super jump, so you’ll 
    just have to ask them...
    
    
    ***************************************************
    ***************************************************
    8. KEY POINTS!!
    For a successful RC Super-Jump you will need to check on the following.
    -> Make sure you are using an RC Car :P
    -> Make sure that the person you are trying to run over is actually dead.
    -> Run over the dead person with the RC car to perform the RC Super-Jump.
    -> ALL CHEATS MUST BE ON!!  No cheats...No Jump
    -> RC means Remote Control car. (Not really a key point but I just thought 
    I’d say.)
    -> The TOYZ Van is Blue, looks like a Pony Van but is smaller and it has 
    “Toyz n’ The Hood” on the side of it
    -> You have only two minutes (120 seconds) to complete the mission or do as 
    many RC Super-Jumps as you can.
    -> Have fun!
