I Need Your Clothes, Your Boots, And Your Motorcycle mission: Car of death
Created by TurboReiji.
Kill your target before he can make the first turn with his car. It will turn into a whirling flaming wreck that spins around through the ground and damages anything that gets near.
Created by retroprosa.
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.
Swim through objects
When swimming into certain objects at certain places you can go through them.
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.
After you die and are standing outside the hospital, use a sniper rifle to kill someone with a headshot. Release L2 and you will be invisible.
Fall through ground
- Take a large vehicle, such as an SUV, to Francis International Airport. Drive sideways under a moving plane so that the wheels are pushing into you. There is a good chance you and the car will drop below the world. After a few seconds you will respawn back on land with the car gone.
- Get to the part where you go into the subway about halfway through the mission "Your Shirt, Your Boots, Your Motorcycle". Stay to the left. When the subway car comes towards you, keep left and try to get in-between the wall and the subway car. Doing this will drop you into "blue hell" for a few of seconds before popping you back up.
- Go to "Fishmarket South" (where you do one mission for Bernie). Find the Anchor statue near the sea. Go towards the water and over the little dock into the water. Swim to the right (south) until you see a wooden "pier" against the wall. It should have square gaps that you can hop in through. Jump through the one to the far right (the first one you swim past) and move towards the wall. You will fall down into "blue hell".
Surviving high falls
Get on the top of a large building via helicopter. Light yourself on fire with a Molotov cocktail on the edge of a building and proceed to fall off. When you hit the ground, you will not lose any life (except getting burned). This happens because the animation when Niko gets burned intercepts the falling animation.
Swim under city
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.
Instant stopping in car
While driving a car bring up your cellphone. Enter the menu and highlight "Camera". Press X at any time to go into camera mode and immediately stop, no matter what speed you were traveling. Press Circle to exit camera mode and begin driving again.
Enable the "Spawn Annihilator police helicopter" code and fly to Middle Park. Land on top of the Capital Building. It is the only building inside Middle Park, and is next to the street. Go to the edge of the building. Take out a rocket launcher and fire it diagonally down towards the middle of the street. If done correctly, the rocket should curve before it hits the ground, then fly straight into the distance. This does not happen with every rocket fired, but always works if you are aiming at the correct location on the street. It appears there is a "sweet spot" on the ground, meaning that there is a precise position you can shoot at that will trigger this glitch easier than some positions. You can actually walk around the building and do this on all of the sides. For some reason instead of continuing down the negative slope and crashing to the ground, the rocket curves before it hits the ground.
Rapid fire shotgun
Note: This was done with the Pimp shotgun. Buy or get various type of weapons including the Pimp shotgun. Then, select the nearest weapon such as the pistol or SMG. After that, quickly select the shoutgun and keep firing by holding R2 and tapping the Left Analog-stick. If your timing is correct, Niko will shoot All his shotgun shells like a machine gun until the next reload.
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.
Get into a helicopter and fly straight in any direction. Keep flying off the map. After a long time your radar will begin to blink as if you are being chased by the police. Then your health will begin to go down. You will need to enable the "Full health" code to proceed. Soon afterwards, you and your helicopter will turn invisible. Note: This requires at least thirty minutes to happen.
Kill your date
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".
Note: This does not happen every time. Put on some armor and go to the beach. Start swimming, and after awhile, you will start to lose life. To save yourself, keep close to the shore but swim around for a long time. This may require ten minutes of real time.
