The middle purple book of a stack of three is titled "Madness & Blasphemy: The Do's and Dont's". This is an reference to the movie 300 where in the "This is Sparta!" scene, the lines "This is blasphemy! This is madness!" are spoken. Perform the required task to unlock the achievement.
If you happen to come across a rare car (Infernus, Coquette, Super GT) and want more to have, drive up to the safehouse in Bohan. There should be at least ten of them lined up around the safehouse, free for your acquisition. During the intermission sequence for the "I'll Get Her" mission, look closely behind Gerry Mcreary. There is a whiteboard for shift changes for the prison guards. Some of their names are Phil McCrevis (feel my crevice) and Richard Head (dick head). Dial ZIT-555-0100 on your cellphone to get a text message listing the title and artist of the music currently playing. Use the following trick to make any vehicle immune to rockets, grenades, and other weapons. Take out a girlfriend on a date. Get in your car and shoot through your window to do a drive-by to scare her. A short intermission sequence will show your date leaving. Your vehicle is now immune to damage. You can date people from the in-game Internet. When looking at their profile click "Date". You then have to wait a few in-game days for a negative or positive reply via email. If your date accepts, reply to their email and meet them. Go to the bridge that takes you to the second island and has train tracks under it. Walk along the train tracks towards the second island before you are allowed to cross the bridge. When you are about half way, you should have a six start wanted level. Then, just stand on the train tracks for five minutes to get the achievement. You do not have to worry about the police because they will be on the bridge above you so they cannot shoot, and the helicopters are above you so you have cover from them.
Go to the hospital at the north-west corner of Algonquin. You can also get there by dying in that general area. Get a motorbike. Set a Waypoint at the hospital or just remember the way you came. Drive to the nearby bridge that takes you to the third island. You must not have access to the third island for this trick to work. Slowly reverse backwards over the barricade on the bridge until you get a six start wanted level. Then, drive straight back to the hospital. To the right of the hospital as you are coming back is a little red fence that you can bust through and get onto the elevated train tracks. Wait there for approximately five minutes to get the achievement. No cars can get to you on the train tracks and the helicopters cannot shoot accurately enough to hit you at motorcycle speed.
Attempt to enter one of the locked boroughs early in the game to get an immediate six star wanted level by taking a car on the subway (or elevated train) tracks. This can be done easily near the corner of Grand Boulevard and Leavenworth Ave. in North Bohan near the police station. From Leavenworth, take a left onto Grand, and go up the little hill. When you reach the crest of the hill, look to your left to find a very short wall above a subway tunnel. Drive a car over that short wall, then drive underground toward North Algonquin. When you have a six star wanted level, stop your car and remain there for five minutes to get the achievement.
After the middle island is unlocked, steal a helicopter from the helitour site in the southeast corner. Fly over any other area you have not yet unlocked to automatically get a six star wanted level. Fly off the map in any direction, and stay in the air. The police helicopters will only chase you so far. After five minutes, you will get the achievement. Go to the airport runway in a fast car (Infernus, Super GT, police cruiser, etc.). There are small yellow ramps scattered in the grass by the runway. Locate one, drive back a good distance, then at full speed hit the ramp so that only half your car actually hits the ramp. You should get enough spins to get the achievement.
Go on the Algonquin Bridge that connects Dukes to Algonquin. Find the part where the lanes split at the bridge when going westbound. At the split is a small ramp. Hit that ramp at high speed to make your car roll over several times. Try to land in the lower area for more room to roll over. Get a four star wanted level, then start a mission to get the achievement.
Get on the airport runway with a car, then get out. This will instantly give you a four star wanted level. Then, run or drive to the end of the runway to get the achievement.
Start picking off cops one by one. Your wanted level will rise as more of them are killed. After you get a four star wanted level, get in a vehicle, and drive into the subway tunnel. Once you leave the flashing wanted circle and your wanted level disappears, you will get the achievement. Get a motorbike, and go to Francis International Airport. Go to one end of the runway, start to accelerate, and do a wheelie by pressing Left Analog-stick Down for 500 feet to get the achievement. The runway works best because you have a very long distance where you can drive perfectly straight without worrying about vehicles pulling out in front of you. It is sometimes difficult to get headshots, which do count in this game. With some practice, the following is an easy way to always get them. Press [Auto-Aim] then use the Right Analog-stick to move the auto-aim target around your victim's body. Barely move the Right Analog-stick as you are shooting. This puts bullets in the chest and head, and results in an easy instant kill. Go to an ATM, then cause a traffic jam to the area. Wait for someone to take money from the ATM, then kill him or her. Make sure to block any nearby roads so the ambulance cannot get to the murdered victim. Take the money they dropped on the ground. Then, run a short distance away, and go back. The money should have respawned on the ground. You can repeat this as many times as desired. You can also kill more people taking their money from the ATM to increase the amount of money that respawns. Complete all the text message cars missions. Then you should be able to park cars in the garage and get money. Do the turismo or supergt cheat and park that car in the garage and you get $11000. That sure is easy money. - Sent by [bigballer23] Go to an ATM, then cause a traffic jam to the area. Wait for someone to take money from the ATM, then kill him or her.

You can also kill more people and take their money from the ATM to increase the amount of money that respawns. First thing first, there is a clothing store called Modo in Liberty A.K.A. the big island in the middle of the map with the Empire State Building in it. Go to Modo and you will see a guy wearing a yellow shirt behind a podium with a cash register on it. An icon in the top corner will give you the option to open the cash register. Once you do this an alarm will sound off and moments later you will have a wanted level. Lose your wanted level and check your bank account across the street. You will have more money and you can do this as many times as you want. Note: You might not be able to buy anything there at Modo anymore, but you can still get money from the register. - Sent by [Jackie] Press the fire button while driving around in a firetruck. This will allow you to shoot the super-powerful water cannon at everybody around you. Watch the different and oftentimes funny civilian's reactions. Well first you need the cheat for an hellicopter witch you will find on this website and you also need a car cheat ok. So your got cops on the ground and your flying in a hellicopter all you do is spawn a car while inside the hellicopter and it will float now to destroy the cops on the ground shoot the car with they guns on the hellicopter or you could just ram into it and it will fall and boom the cops fly away. Just to be sure you CANNOT make the car fly with you in it there is no such cheat. - Sent by [chickenlegs456] For a free cab ride get in a cab and choose destination whatever you do dont skip the ride just press hurry (x)and wait until you are not far from your detination and shoot out of the window (RB) the cab driver should then run away. - Sent by [cooper] By gaining friendship with the following people can benefit you in many ways.
Brucie - Brucie likes to bowl, drink, eat, go to strip clubs, shows, helirides and boating. If you get his friendship level up to 70%, you can call Brucie and he'll dispatch a helicopter to your location, allowing you to utilize it as you'd like.
Dwayne - Dwayne likes to go to strip clubs, eat, drink, go to shows and bowl. If you get his friendship level up to 60%, you can call Dwayne and he'll send you a car full of gang members that will follow you and help you out as you need them.
Little Jacob - Little Jacob likes to play darts, go to shows, play billiards, drink, eat, and go to strip clubs. If you get his friendship level up to 60%, you can call Little Jacob and he'll drive a car to your location full of guns that you can purchase from him.
Packie - Packie likes to go to strip clubs and shows, play darts, drink, bowl and play billiards. If you get his friendship level up to 75%, you can call Packie and he'll make you a potent car bomb that you can use as you need it.
Roman - Roman likes to go bowling, play darts, go drinking, eat, play billiards, go to shows and to strip clubs. If you get his friendship level up to 60%, you can call Roman and he'll send you a free cab to use anywhere in the city. Steal a luxury car with a GPS with a female voice. She sometimes makes the "bing bong" notification sound herself while giving directions. For example, "At 100 yards, turn left." At the junction, she would say "bing bong" instead of an actual beep. Go to the statue of liberty and walk up to the second level. Walk through the door (it doesn't swing open, just go through it) and the game will load for a second and you will walk out with a new t-shirt with the statue of liberty on it. When running away from the cops, you will have a circular area in which they look for you. However, if you get out and another cop sees you, it changes. To use this to your advantage, get barely out of that circle which you will see on your radar. Just sit there for about five seconds instead of flooring past it. In the first mission, when you give Roman a ride to a betting shop, on the other side of the road that is a shop called "Mr. Wong's", which is reference to Mr. Wong in Grand Theft Auto 3. Also, there are Furgons in the city. After you kill the drug dealers in the "Shadow" mission for Little Jacob, leave the room and go back the way you came. On the wall just before you go down the stairs you will see graffiti which has the name of every previous Grand Theft Auto protagonist on the wall; Claude from Grand Theft Auto 3, Tommy from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Carl from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Tony Cipriani from Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, and Victor Vance from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. The text says things like "Victor - never forget you / always remember you bro", "RIP Claude", "RIP Toni", "remember Tommy - u r still my hero", "Carl I love you RIP everyone miss you", "RIP Vic". Some of the ringtones you can choose for the more "modern" phones are actually songs from Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. On the in game internet there is a website called area 59 which was the name of a show on WCTR radio station.
On the tv the poker championship there are screenshots of Las Venturas, Prickle Pine (houses) and part of the desert by the old airport. You must first be able to travel to Happiness Island. Find the Helicopter Tours directly east of Happiness Island. Steal a helicopter and fly to Happiness Island. Hover over the Statue Of Happiness and jump out of the helicopter at the statue's feet. Try to land on the topmost tier of the statue, which is a square platform with a door in the center of each side. Run around the platform until you see a door with a plaque that reads "No Hidden Content Here". Walk through that door to enter an empty room with a high ladder. Climb it and look up at the top to find the statue's gigantic beating heart, held in place by chains. You can find a secret car in Party, Free For All, Story Line, Bomb da Base II, Cops 'n Crooks, Car Jack City, Mafiya Work, and Deathmatch modes. As you are going up the stairs to chase Clarence, you will see a green health kit. Do not take it. Continue after Clarence and follow the advice of McCleary about not using your weapon until you are on the second floor; otherwise, Clarence will just get into a vehicle and leave. If you wait until you are on the second floor, he will climb to the roof. After you have chosen the Clarence's fate, you automatically have a three star wanted level regardless of what you selected. You must battle your way out. Because you are going down, you have a distinct disadvantage in cover and will take lots of damage. To give yourself an edge, at the start of the mission park a fast car on the street near the opening in the gate. Do not pull up to the gate. Use the stairs to your right to give chase. Once you have gotten to the roof and chosen his fate, descend to the level with the first aid kit (green box). Because you left it there on your way up, you will know what level you are on and can power up. Go to the side of the building where your car is parked and jump over the railing. Upon landing, you will not lose much health. Sprint to your car and get away from the cops. If done correctly, you should not take a single bullet from police. The health pack is a requirement to survive the fall. After completing all of the missions in Broker (first island) and move on into Bohan, go to the Helicopter tours which is in the southern part of the island on a platform facing Broker. Hijack one of the choppers and take it to your apartment, try to land it on the parking area and if you do, save the game inside your apartment and you will now have a Helicopter for you to mess around with. Useful to get away from cops or to pick up friends or girlfriends quicker, only problem is landing. Get a chopper and fly to the Rottingdam Tower. Go near the top and fly the chopper into the tower but don't do it fast because you just come out the other side. If you go slow you should be in, after that go down and you will go under the map. You can kill anyone you want (don't jump out or you will just pop back up). At the bottom area of Broker is a beach. Continue to the edge nearest to Algonquin to see a pedestrian practicing karate. Normally, Niko cannot kill his dates, but only "scare" them. When on a date with a girlfriend or boyfriend, have them follow you to any coastline. Swim out into the middle of the ocean. A few yards in the water, Niko's date will instantly die. Note: This glitches the game. If Kate gets killed, her telephone will always be busy when called. Niko will also receive date invitations from dead people labeled as "Unknown Caller". When walking or running up stairs, jump at the first step to skip or sometimes launch yourself up the stairs. Certain vehicles have funny notes on their license plates cover or broder. For instance the "Ruiner" 1980's Camaro clone has the saying "Ruining Imports Since '67". Enter "www.whattheydonotwantyoutoknow.com" password into the in-game computers. You will get Weapon, When inside a Mr. Tasty Ice Cream truck, one of the the songs the truck plays is called the GTA Theme, in a cycle order it is usually played after Flight of the Bumblebee. While playing the song, call ZiT, and a text message will confirm telling you the name of the song. As soon as the message is answered, a Cheat Activated confirmation will appear, and the cheat will appear in the Cheat section in your phone.
Effects: Cheat gives you full health and Body Armor. Play Packie's mission "Three Leaf Clover". While Michael is watching the hostages, one of the men on the floor turns to a man next to him and lets him know that he is a member of a gun club and when the time is right they will fight back. When Michael is distracted, the man stands up, shoots Michael, then in turn is killed by Packie and his brother. This is a reference to the bank heist in the movie Point Break. Take note of phone numbers on graffiti or ads on buildings on in the subway. Call those numbers on Niko's cellphone to make a prank phone call. Complete 10 Package Delivery missions. Walk in the darkest parts of the subway and you might find someone called "Ratman". When you get close to him he will say said he is Ratman but will then run very fast down the subway. You will not be able to catch up with him. Watch the Weazel and CNT channels on the television at your hideout. You will see a commercial that uses scenes from Red Dead Revolver, which is another Rockstar game. If you want to remove blood stains on your clothes or your face, just buy a food at a vendor or restaurant. After you eat the food, all blood stains on your clothes and face will disappear. If the vehicle you are driving breaks down and the engine will not start, call 911, and your engine should start again. There is a secret Happiness Island shirt laying at the highest point on the statue's base that can be reached by foot. It looks like a glowing red rectangle. Once it is picked up Niko will automatically put it on. It is a navy blue sweatshirt. The front shows the statue and reads "Happiness is..." and is continued on the back with the word "...land". When in online multi-player mode, find a shopping cart. Make sure you have someone with you. In multi-player mode, everyone has their own shopping cart, meaning that the shopping cart on your screen is invisible to everybody else. Run into the shopping cart and make sure it moves. While it is moving, try to jump on it. If done correctly, your character will appear as if he is drunk or stumbling everywhere, but on your friend's screen, it will appear as if you are sliding on the ground. Sometimes you will slide/stumble longer than others. You can do this in Story mode, but you will only stumble. Call 255-555-0100. Call 359-555-0100 on Niko's cell. Go to the strip club and reserve a lap dance. After the performance is done she will ask if you want another, accept twice and she will bring in another girl into the room for a duet. Go to the north part of the map, just northwest of Butterfly Street in Bohan. Once there, get down to the outskirts of the land and walk towards the corner between the brick wall and the cliff. You can walk through the invisible wall. Lookup towards the city to see the city from below. You can also continue onwards and swim under the city. Near Faustin's house is a reference to a legendary musical note. If you are in the area, proceed to the dead end about a block away towards the water. Hop over the fence on your left while facing the water and a man should be sitting on a bench reading a book titled "The Brown Note". Musician's joke that this is a note that when played causes bowel movements by the person playing it. First, you'll have to have access to Happiness Island. Once you're able to go there legally, find the Helicopter Tours (which is directly east of Happiness Island) and steal a helicopter. Fly to Happiness Island and over the Statue of Liberty, then jump out of the helicopter at the statue's feet. You should land on the topmost tier of the statue, which is basically a square platform with a door in the center of each side. Run around the platform until you see a door with a plaque on either side of it that reads, "No Hidden Content Here." It may seem like you cannot go through the door, but you can-- it doesn't open, you simply walk THROUGH the door. Inside, you'll find an empty room with a tall ladder. Climb it, and when you reach the top, look up; there is a gigantic beating heart, held in place by chains. Complete the following achievements to unlock Xbox Live Gamerscore points.
