Glitches

  • Bike Morphing

    There is a glitch in the game that makes it possible to ''morph'' with a bike. When this glitch has been done, it is impossible to get hit off your bike by another vehicle, or anyhting else. You can also pull off flips due to this glitch, as well as gaining other big insane bonuses.

    To activate this glitch, all you really need to do is jump on a bike at the same time as picking up a clothes pickup. First off:

    1. Get to a Clothes Pickup
    2. Place your bike in the middle of the clothes pickup, then position your bike so that the clothes pickup is sticking further out than the other side.
    3. Get on the side that has the clothes pickup not sticking out as much, and jump on the bike. If done right, you should ''morph''. You should still be standing while the bike is in between you. When you accelerate the bike, you will run while the bike goes forward.

    There are also other ways to do this, like drop kicking on the bike. It might be easier if you devise your own strategy. This glitch is hard to get done, so it will take a lot of practice. Also, PCJ 600s are the easiest for this.

    One good place to morph is at the Clothes Pickup on top of the Hyman Condo. You may also want to use the North Point Mall, since there is two pickups there, and you can go back and forth if you fail to make this glitch work.

    Now you will be able to do flips and crash into other objects with out falling of your bike. This glitch will stay activated until the bike catches on fire and eventually blows up. To deactivate this glitch, just simply get off, shoot a weapon, or make a heavy turn or brake.

  • Double a weapon's ammunition

    First, get the gun that you want to double the ammo of. Then, find any rampage. Take out the gun you want to double the ammo in. Then, start the rampage. Don't do anything, and let the timer run out. When you fail, your gun will have twice as much ammunition than when you started.

  • Drive any vehicle during Dirt Ring

    On the day of the dirt ring event drive the vehicle of your choice to the stadium. Drive your way up to in front of the stadium doors where the driver's door is facing the entrance. Drive your vehicle close enough to the door where it will barely exit from the driver's side. Exit the vehicle, activate the race and push the enter car button simutaneously. If done correctly when the mission starts you should be in your vehicle where you are usually standing. You will have unlimited time to play around. Works great with other bikes and the Caddy.

  • Drive blown up car

    Make sure you know how to do the blow up all cars for this one, and be able to do it EXTREMELY fast. Walk up to a car with a person in it and steal it. During the animation in which tommy pulls the person out and gets in, enter the blow up all cars cheat. The car will explode and you will be unhurt, and the car will be flaming
    enter the health cheat to stop the car from burning, (I enter it twice to assure it works) and you are now driving around in a 3 wheeled burnt car. This also works in GTA 3

  • Easy Hotring Race Win

    You will need a Mini Gun with lots of ammo to exploit this glitch. When the race begins drive your Hotring into the black garage that the cars spawn from. Drive the car to the back of the garage on the right side right against the wall. This will stop any cars spawning throughout the race. Now back onto the track and take out your Mini Gun. Face the oncoming traffic and use its auto aim feature to blow up every car that comes your way. When the cars stop coming. Go back into the garage, hop back into you car and finish the race, opponent free.

  • Get to mainland at start of game (requires previous save on mainland)

    If you plan to start the game again then this is a helpful glitch. Start a mission on the mainland and kill yourself. When you wake up in hospital don't do anything, just start a new game. As soon as you gain control of tommy kill him. (Whatever you do, do not start any missions). When you get up at the hospital get straight in the taxi. It will take you to your mission location on the second island.

    Note: Once on the second island, you can not do any missions, nor can you get back onto the start area.

  • Jumping over fences

    When driving a vehicle during game play pull up along side a fence or short wall with driverside against the fence and press triangle to exit and you will be on the other side of the fence.This is great for getting away from the police or gangs.

  • Lighthouse Glitch

    If you are wanted by the cops, go into the lighthouse. There is a glitch that makes the cops unable to come up there.

  • Lock on with an assault rifle

    There is away to lock on with the assault rifles in this game. (Rugers and M4s.) First cause a fire, possibly by throwing molotov cocktails nearby. Next, run into the the fire so you are in flames. Now, press the lock on button and your Ruger will lock on to your enemies.

  • More Cars In Garages

    To get more cars or bikes in your garages simply park a vehicle so it jams the door (being half in the garage, half out) and drive more vehicles in.

    Contributed By: Firestorm ZERO.

  • Rhino in the Underworld

    This is a way to get the Rhino tank into the area below the game map. Just get a Rhino, put in the ''Dodo Physics'' cheat, turn the turret 180 degrees and keep on hitting circle and hold back on the D-pad. Once you get airborne, fly down through the top the El Corrupto Bank. Since its top isn't solid, you'll fly down through the bank and into the ''underworld''. Control its flight downward or you'll go down too far and end up back on the street. If you did this correctly, you can fly through underworld.

  • Street Vantage Point

    While in the air turn the car on it's side so that the drivers side points upand then get out. If you did it right the car will float in the air with you standing on it allowing you to shoot people from it. Note: If the tire is shot out or if the car explodes the car will fall from the sky. Also some times you can't get back in the car.
