  • Change characters, car color, and plates without losing stats, skills, upgrades, missions completed, etc.

    Before you enter any Impound Garage remove your memory card and the game will prompt you to insert the memory card if you want to save your game, re-insert the memory card then save your game. At this point you can either override an existing file or create a new file, now is when you can create your new license plate with either a new character, new car color, or new name on the plate with out losing anything you have unlocked in the game, finally all you have to do now is save you game and enjoy.

    Note: This can probably be done anywhere the game saves but it's best doing it at the garages because you can see the new car color if you have changed it and you know it has worked, also if you change characters you will need to exit the garage before you see the new character you have chosen.

  • Make pedestrians go through any wall

  • Unlimited Ammunition

    First get the gun you want to have for unlimited ammo for(ie: AK-47). Get that gun into Kang's right hand by picking up another gun. When you get close to running out of ammo with the gun that is in your right hand, holster your guns, then fire the gun into the air by pressing R2+R1, you only have to fire it once, and you should notice that the clip automatically reloads as Kang puts the guns back into his holsters. Then unholster your weapons and the gun you have in you right hand should be fully reloaded.

    note: This only works with the gun you have in your left hand. And also only works when you are in those open ended missions(the ones where you can solve street crimes), not the ones where you shoot your way through the mission because in those missions you can't holster your guns. Not all guns hold the same amount of ammo, for example an uzi and a shotgun

  • CPU Driving

    After an in-game movie where Nick is driving, don't touch the controller, and don't skip the movie. When the game starts back up, the Computer will drive to where your supposed to go on it's own. Nick obeys all traffic signals, and sometimes is hit by people who don't. Be Careful, for those of you who like to keep your good cop rating up, Nick sometimes hits pedestrians and sometimes just drives aimlessly and never takes you to your destination.

  • Hidden FMV

    First you need to play as the blindfolded donkey (JASS, see "how to change Nick" in unlockables.)
    Then you must complete all three endings. Now the bonus FMV will change, and you will see a pimp and one of Wu's ladies.
