Easter Eggs

  • A real virtual Easter Egg

    Aim for the Helipad on top of the Vice City-News Station (on the second Island). Sometimes there is the VCN Mavrick on the Helipad. The building on the right has a hallow wall so you can go through it. The hallow part is a unrealistic looking window on the left of it. Run from one side of the heliport to the other and then jump into the hallow window. There you will see the Easter Egg with a sign on it that says Happy Easter.

Glitches

  • Blood in modified PAL (German) version

    Just set your console and the game language to English, this allows you to play the game without censorship.
    Now you can also hit opponents while they are on the ground, a feature that was removed from the German version.

    Contributed By: Winglungman.

  • Drive a Blown-Up Car

    Get into a car. Drive in front of the desired car (to keep it front driving away) that you would like to drive after it's been blown up. THE CAR MUST HAVE SOMEONE IN IT. Walk up to the driver's side door. Enter the ''Blow up all cars'' code. While entering the code, Mr. GTA (or whatever his name is) will pull the driver out of the car and then get into it as it's blowing up and somehow he will not die. But as soon as you are in the car, enter the Health Code to extinguish the flame. It might not work the first time, so keep trying and eventually it will work.

    Contributed By: entermatrix303.

  • Easy Kill in Vigilante Missions

    Start a Vigilante mission. Once you get near the suspect's car. Hit pause, and then un-pause it. The suspect will jump out of the car for no reason. Now you can run them over.

    Contributed By: N3k74r.

  • Get into the subway when it's blocked.

    Near the Traid Gang area, there is a subway entrance that is blocked off. It has stairs leading down to it. There is a ramp that causes you to fly over the small gap. But if you drive up very slowly then you will fall of the ramp and land on the stairs. If you done this correctly then you should go through the cage. You will now be in the subway. You will now be able to either take a train to another island or drive your car to another island through the subway. This glitch works well with a Police car or a Taxi.

    Contributed By: Stegatron.

  • Get To Third Island

    At the first island drive your car towards the tunnel that blocks off the third and second island. Park the car right next to the blue wall and blow it up. You should be blown through into the third or second island.

    Contributed By: kennansoft.

  • Getting Into Unlocked Parts of the City

    By using the ''Jumping Cars'' trick, you can access other parts of the city you can't in the beginning of the game, from the broken down bridges. Just go to the bridge you want to cross, and use the ''Jumping Cars'' trick when your just about to hit the edge of the bridge. You will then cross the bridge safely (might take a try or two), and be able to try out some new city life!

    Contributed By: SPG CloudEx.

  • Ghost Ship

    When you're doing the mission on Staunton Island for Ray Machowski called ''Gone Fishing'', you're supposed to kill the guy on the boat. If you stand on the shore with your sniper rifle and shoot him as he goes by, he may turn the wrong direction and beach himself.

    If you shoot him as he's standing on the shore, the boat remains. Press the Triangle button as you would to get into any other boat, and press the Square button like you're reversing. The boat won't go too far, but if you keep holding the Square button down, eventually you can get back into the water, assuming the boat doesn't flip.

    The boat handles REALLY well, goes pretty fast, and goes by the title of ''GHOST Missing''. If you dock it and shoot it to make it explode, it does explode, but it still remains as though it's new. You can't really see yourself inside the boat, as it was never meant for you to drive anyways.

    Little thing, but it's fun.

  • Heal vehicle

    Enter the full health cheat (R2, R2, L1, R1, Left, Down, Right, Up, Left, Down, Right, Up) while in a vehicle and that vehicle's damage will be repaired. The visual damage will remain but the vehicle's condition will be as if it were new.

    Contributed By: CrotchRocket.

  • Hospital to Shoreside Vale

    If you want to get to the third Island and haven't earned it, you can ''fall'' into the underground passage. You'll need the Car Handling Cheat entered (R1 L1 R2 L1 left R1 R1 Triangle) and an esperanto. You must have an Esperanto - it's the only car that will jump high enough. First, get to the hospital in Staunton Island. then, go to the parking lot and go as fast as you can towards the Hospital. Make sure that you are on the left side of it... It's hard to do it without doing that. Jump onto the platform above the Hospital ''Entrance'' and go slowly straight to the square-looking wall. Go into it turning right, and go forward. You should fall out of the world and land in the underground passage. Turn right and go quicly to the beauty of Shoreside Vale. If you hit a blue wall, turn around and go.

  • Infinite Time for Fires in Fire Truck Missions!!!

    To exploit this glitch it's just a matter of putting the fire out as the clock is going to hit 0. If done correctly, the timer will disappear allowing infinite time to cruise to the next fire.

    Contributed By: TheDreamingLover.

  • More cars in the garage

    Go to any garage that can fit two or more cars in. When It is full, get another car right up next to the door, and get out. Press triangle as the door is going up, and hit X fast to get the car in. You might have to move the cars in the garage around, but it's possible to get up to 6 cars in any given garage.

  • Reset Radio Station Track

    Press the START button, go to the Audio menu, select the station you want to reset, then press the START button and press left or right to change the menu while the pause menu dissapears. For some reason, the radio station you selected will reset. You will notice the station track reset if you are in a car.

  • Run in the Sky

    Take an ambulance to the top of Marco's Bistro in the St. Mark's area. It takes a bit of work, but you should be able to get it up the stairs eventually. Now, slowly back it up so that it almost rolls over the edge of the little wall, but not all the way. Now (quickly) find a car on the street and bring it in front of the ambulance so that you can jump on the ambulance's hood and then roof. While on the roof, jump towards the brick wall of the building. You should end up on an invisible ledge or roof and you can run around quite a large area before the invisible ground ends. Tip: Use a gun that you can aim manually to shoot the "ground" in front of you a bit. If there are sparks, then it's safe to walk, and if there aren't any than you will fall if you try to walk there.

    Contributed By: Phantomplanet.

  • Use any car for taxi missions

    Get into a taxi, hold down the R3 button. Exit the taxi and step into another car, release the R3 button and you should be able to do taxi mission in the car you are currently in.

Easter Eggs

  • Hidden message

    On the second island (Staunton Island), go to the left of the main entrance of the car park that was used in the Kingdom Come mission. Go up the stairway you find up the alleyway with a car and park the car by the wall to the right. The wall is too high to jump on so you will need the car. Jump on the car, then on the wall and you will be on a flat roof. Jump off the wall to the area where you see all the metal fire escape stairways and look around. You will then see a message on one of the walls that reads: “You werent supposed to be able get here you know”.

  • Hooker Trick

    Get a normal car and cruise the streets until you find a hooker drive up next to her (make sure she is standing next to the drivers door) and she will talk to you for a couple of minutes then she will walk around to the other side of the car and get in. Drive to a dark place (an alley, your hideout etc.) and park the car but do not get out. The car will start shaking and your health will go up. Then you have two choices:
    1)Stay still and let her get out then beat her up to get your money back, or
    2) tap the gas right before she gets out then park the car and watch the car start shaking again which saves time since it costs a dollar a second when she is in the car.

  • Repair damaged vehicles

    Damaged vehicles can be repaired free at any hideout by parking the vehicle in your garage and get out of the car, leave to let the door close then return and any cars in your garage will be repaired.

  • Vigilante Bonus: Police Bribes

    While not doing a normal mission, get into a law enforcement vehicle (Police Car, Enforcer, FBI Car, or Tank) and press R3. In this mode you must chase down criminals and kill them.
    Kill 20 criminals on each island and you will be rewarded with a total of 6 Police Bribes at your save point (1 for each set of 10 killed. You must kill criminals on every island to receive all 6 Police Bribes, however. This means killing 20 criminals on each island. Killing two sets of 10 criminals (20 total) in Portland will give you all the Police Bribes (2 total) you can get from that island, and so on.

    NOTE: The criminal kills do not have to be done consecutively. Just be sure to kill 20 on each island while in Vigilante mode.

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.

  • 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.
