After acquiring the phone from Playboy X, go to the nearest Internet cafe. Buy all of the ringtones and themes from the ringtones site. Log out of the computer and you will notice that you only paid $100 for all ringtones and themes.

Reach the part of the game where Niko and Roman have a safehouse in South Bohan. In the house on the left of the table near the television is a pile of books. 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.

The final mission "A Revenger's Tragedy" is a reference to the play and movie based on the play titled The Revenger's Tragedy.

Kill all 200 pigeons. The Annihilator is armed with rockets.

Use any emergency vehicle, turn on the sirens, and drive (speed does not matter). The booth attendant will open the gate and you will have saved $5.

When in a car or a motorcycle, drive up to toll booth. Stay on the far side of the booth. Niko will stick his arm out, but not put money in the basket. The gate will still open.

Ride a motorcycle to the side of the pay toll wall. You will not pay a toll if you can drive through the small gap on the sides.

During the bowling date with Michelle, when you enter the bowling alley notice the neon bowling alley sign. Look closely to see that it resembles male genitalia.

Select the first lane (all the way to the left). Take two full steps to the left. Hold Right Analog-stick Down for about a half second, then press Right Analog-stick Up. Do not add any aftertouch to the throw.

Get any car. When you get to the race, wait until the race starts. Immediately after it starts, shoot out at least one tire on each car, but make it quick.

Hold [Accelerate] + [Brake] to do a burnout. If you keep doing this, the smoke will change color and eventually your tires will burst.

If you do a burn out long enough you will blow out your back tire(s). In a car, go left until you see lots of smoke then go to the right.

In order to call a taxi, position Niko near traffic, preferably somewhere on the sidewalk. Spot a cab and press L1. Niko will automatically call out for a taxi. It is also possible to order a taxi with the cell phone if you have problems spotting one. Additionally, Niko can eventually earn the ability to call a limo as you progress in the game.

You can also approach a taxi that already has a fare from the passenger side, then pull out the passenger and get in.

Dial "911" on your cellphone. You will reach a voice menu that will allow you to call the police by dialing "1", an ambulance by dialing "2", or a fire truck by dialing "3". Select the vehicle of your choice and wait for them to arrive. The will stop and look around for the emergency, allowing you to easily steal their vehicle.

Steal a police car and any time you are in trouble press L1 while your car is stationary. Select "Call For Backup" and within minutes you will have to cruisers full of police who will fight on your side unless you shoot someone.

Use a helicopter or boat, or simply swim to reach Happiness Island. Go inside the first door of the Statue Of Happiness. There will be a security guard with a carbine rifle. Kill him with your pistol and take the rifle.

At any time during the game, pull out Niko's phone and dial these numbers for the desired effect.


Get in a police car and turn on your sirens. Hold [Horn] and it will cycle through alternate siren sounds until released.

If you happen to be riding a bike before you come up to the toll booth, aim towards the gap in the middle. It leads right behind the 2 guys in the booths, so you won't be seen and you've saved yourself $5! Hooray for the cheapskates!

Kill Playboy X and get his penthouse. Save the game and restart the system. When you reload your saved game, flip through your outfits and you should have Claude's outfit (the main character in Grand Theft Auto 3). Everything from the leather jacket, the green cargos, and the black shoes with the white stripe on the bottom should be there.

All of the following tasks must be completed to achieve a 100% completion rating.

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.

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.

Gain some speed in a car and hold [Handbrake] until you have completed a full 180. Just before you complete the 180, release [Handbrake] and hold [Brake], which will spin you the next 180 degrees. Obviously you will end up facing the direction you were before the attempt. However, some vehicles cannot do this. Also with some vehicles holding [Brake] will spin you back the way you came while using the handbrake, resulting in back-to-back 180s.

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 and cause a traffic jam to that area. Wait for someone to withdraw money from the ATM, then kill that person. Block any nearby roads so that the ambulance reach your victim. Take the money they dropped on the ground then run a short distance away. Return to the scene and the money should have respawned on the ground. You can repeat this as many times as desired. You can also kill more people and take their money from the ATM to increase the amount of money that respawns.

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.

If your vehicle catches on fire, run over a fire hydrant. Position your vehicle over the spouting water to extinguish the flames before it explodes.

To avoid wasting time driving all the way across the city, call a taxi. They will take you to your destination for your mission, stores, safehouses, or even a waypoint marker. You can skip through the taxi ride, allowing you to travel across the entire city in about ten seconds. This can also be done during missions.

Note: A PCJ 600 or NRG 900 is recommended for this trick. To drive it faster, accelerate. Just as your bike is about to shift into third gear, tap the Left Analog-stick repeatedly about every second. Do not tap it too fast or you will lose rear tire grip. If done correctly, the engine will gradually get near to the end of its last gear. When it gets to the end of its last gear, the revs will jump to indicate that you are traveling at the bike's top speed.

If you boost a fire truck, press the fire button while driving around. This will allow you to shoot the super-powerful water cannon at anyone around you. Watching people react to getting shot with high-speed water is hilarious.

Get a boat and head out to the ocean, when you get there spawn a car by using the car cheats. The boat should disappear and a car should float above you. | Submitted by Alex

Use the following trick to get your vehicle painted to the color of your choice. Go to any Pay 'n' Spray and have them fix your car. It costs $100, but if you drive back out then back in without hitting anything, they will give you a free paint job. Repeat this until you get your favorite color.

Get in a taxi. Do not skip the ride after choosing your destination. Just before reaching your destination, hold [Fire] to start a drive-by shooting. The driver will abandon the taxi, and your ride will be free. You can also kill the fleeing driver to actually get money for the ride.

If a friend gets run over by an NPC on the way to see you, you will only be able to get his voice mail. A few in-game days later he will call, asking to be picked up from the hospital.

By gaining friendship with the following people can benefit you in many ways.

BonusHow to unlock

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.

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 70%, 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.

If your PlayStation3 freezes when trying to play the game, try the following to fix the problem. Sign out of PlayStation Network either by canceling the sign in process before it can be completed under the Network option on the Cross Media Bar, or going to "Settings", then "Network Settings", then "Internet Connection" and disabling your current connection.

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.

The following is an easy way to start the game with full pistol and shotgun ammo. Unlock the ability to save by sleeping on the bed in Roman's home. Getting the knife is also helpful. Go outside Roman's home and kill a few people. The police will appear. Kill a police officer. He will drop his gun. Take it then immediately run into Roman's home and sleep on the bed. You can choose to save the game if desired. When you wake up, your wanted level will be down, and you will still have the pistol. Go back outside and kill more pedestrians. When the cops appear, run up the stairs. Turn around at the top of the stairs and face the door going outside of Roman's home. The cops will come through that door and you can just pick them off with your new pistol. Watch your health and do not worry about picking up the guns. If your health gets low you can sleep on the bed. Wake up, and when you go outside there will be lots of weapons. The shotgun will take longer because not every cop uses it. However if you enter the police cars that have been abandoned outside the apartments you can easily get five shells for the shotgun for each different car you enter.

Steal a helicopter, and fly over the top of the prison. Land on the basketball courts to avoid getting a wanted level. After entering the prison you can see prisoners talking with each other, eating on the benches, a crazy prisoner, and correctional officers on patrol.

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.

Later in the game, you'll be given an option to kill Dwayne or Playboy X. If you kill Playboy X, you can use his loft and change clothes there. Amongst your change of clothes will be the outfit from GTA3 -- a tight black jacket and green cargo pants.

To turn on the brights in a car, hold Square for a moment. The bright lights turn on, even in daytime.

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.

Drive up to an intersection and start honking your horn. Other cars will join in the fun and honk as well. Get close to a police car and honk your horn. They will run their siren to honk with you.

When stopped in a car in a large traffic jam, tap out the rhythm of the musical phrase "Shave and a haircut" on your horn. Another car in the traffic jam will answer it with the standard two beep "two bits" response.

Michelle loves to go to restaurants, cafés, bars and darts but her favourite is bowling. Make sure to play a few games of bowling with her every so often. Once you start dating her a few times, she will invite you into her house for coffee. When you go to visit her, make sure you change your clothes from time to time, as she gets tired if you wear the same clothes after a few dates. Also, make sure you have a nice car, or she may comment and say that,' your last car was better'. When you're driving, be sure not to drive too fast, crash or drive over people as she may become upset and leave. If she becomes upset and leaves during a date, she may not date you for a few weeks because of what happened on the previous date. | Submitted by Jenny

At the bottom area of Broker is a beach. Continue to the edge nearest to Algonquin to see a pedestrian practicing karate.

At the start of the game it would appear that you can only save two cars parked in the "Residents Parking Only" parking spaces in front of your safe house. However if you can find other "Residents Parking Only" places around the city, you can also save cars there even if you do not have a safe house at those locations yet.

Outside your first safehouse is a small parking area marked with "Residents Parking Only" signs to park your vehicles and save them. Do not park your vehicles fully within the lines. You can park vehicles partially within those lines to have more vehicles parked and saved there.

If you attempt to use the trick to keep more than two cars in any one parking space, it will only work up until you leave the current game session. If you shut off your system, play a multiplayer game, or load your most recent save, all but two of your cars will have disappeared. It seems to either save the two cars closest to the center of the parking space, or save two at random.

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".

No matter the extent of your wanted level, if you can make it back to one of your safe houses and go to your bed to save, the cops will be automatically called off. You don’t even have to actually save, you can just access the save menu and then cancel out. As long as you reach this menu, then you won’t have to worry about the cops chasing you once you go back outside.

Go to the "SuperStar Cafe" on the corner of Iron St. and Denver-Exeter Ave. on the west side of the building and look up at the "SuperStar Cafe" sign above and it will say "SuperStar Cafe Starring.. The Mighty.. Love Fist.". Note: Love Fist is a 80's Rock band from GTA: Vice City. | Submitted by ADAM

Enter "" password into the in-game computers. You will get Weapon, health, armor, vehicle, pigeon, ramp/stunt, and entertainment locations.

When in a helicopter, preferably the police one, enable a code to spawn a car. The car will either float in the air motionless, fall at high speeds, or hit your rotor and spin off.

To wear a bra, go to the clothes store called Modo and walk up to the cashier. If it is the female cashier this trick will work. Knife the cashier and stand over her body for one game hour. Travel back to Roman's apartment and go over to the wardrobe. You should now have an option to wear a bra. Wearing the bra will change NPC dialogue, and they will start saying things to you like "What the hell are you wearing man?!".

Use the following trick to ride a motorcycle without Niko wearing a helmet. Tap the Triangle at any point during the animation where he puts the helmet on, but before the helmet actually appears. Doing this cancels the animation and Niko will not wear his helmet. If you wait too long and press that button after the helmet has appeared in Niko's hand it will still cancel the animation, but the helmet will immediately appear on Niko's head.

Hold R2 when you are getting on a motorcycle. You will drive once Niko has started the motorcycle, and "forget" to wear a helmet.

You are only supposed to park two cars in the "residents parking only" however i was able to park four cars there by parking the cars on the edge of the yellow line this is helpful if you like a lot of cars by your safe house. have fun. | Submitted by slipknot99099

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.

Drive to the park with a swingset at the Firefly Projects in Broker. Using a light vehicle such as a Blista, Futo, or Comet is recommended. Run into the swings at a moderate speed to get the chain moving. Then, back up and drive into the center pole at a good speed. If you have a rear wheel drive or four wheel drive car, drive forward until the front end is on the middle pole until it is in the air and get the vehicle as close to vertical as possible without it flipping. If using a front wheel drive car, drive it in reverse into the pole. Eventually the car will get tossed far into the air. Note: Sometimes Nikko will be tossed through the windshield instead when driving forward into the pole.

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.

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.
