railroad tracks and follow them south until they lead to a building
with boxcars. The complex can only be entered by jumping the wall,
going through the boxcar warehouse, or by an opening to the right
of the warehouse. The boxcar warehouse has a sawed-off shotgun
(you will need a car to get it) in one of the cars, a plank bridge

the corresponding buttons (X, Circle, Triangle,
and Square) as shown on the screen).You can also play some
video games at the arcade machine or buy some food or drinks at
the vending machines.
Bet on horses
Near the Downtown and Mulholland Intersection areas
(under the highway, next to the big parking lot), is a building
called Inside Track Betting (with red/pink/blue posters). The
entrance is just in front of it, and you can play a horse race
game. You first bet on one of the horse to win, then the amount
of money. Afterwards you can see the race.
Two player mode
Insert a second controller in port two. In the Ganton
area, start from Grove Street where the Johnson house is located.
Drive under the first bridge and continue to go straight. Next,
youshould drive over some railroad tracks. After this, you should
drive under a second bridge. Take the first right turn you see.
It should be a dead end. Drive until your car hits the grass,
then look to your left. You should see an open doorway. Walk through
it and you should see a small "2 Player" icon. Press
any button on controller two to begin.
When you are on the missions from Big Smoke go north of his house.
You should see some wrecked buildings. Go through them to find
a two player free roam icon.
Go to the bar near Ganton but do not go in. Instead, look around the bar and close to the bridge will be a drink machine. Go up to it and press Triangle to pay $1 for a drink.
From the Johnson house in the Ganton area, go straight
until you are in the front yard of the house opposite of yours.
Turn right, and go behind it by going between that house and the
one next to it. Go in the backyard until you are in the corner.
You should see a pistol. Take it, then get back to Grove Street.
If you see man, usually in black, that is standing there with
his arms crossed, shoot him. He usually carries about $2,000 or
more and a pistol, because he is a drug dealer. Repeat this to
get easy money. Kill him quickly before he shoots you. It is possible
to get $50,000 in one day by doing this.
Upon exiting the Johnson house in Grove Street, walk straight
toward the house opposite of yours, which is the one that sometimes
has the BMX bike in the front yard, until you are in the grass.
Go to your right between that house and the one next to it. Walk
toward the corner and get the pistol. Go back to Grove Street
and find a drug dealer. He is dressed in black with his hands
crossed down at his hips. You will know he is a drug dealer because
if you face him, he will try to do business. You will get a pop-up
display in the top-right part of your screen on how to respond
to him, even though you cannot actually buy anything. If you shoot
and kill him, he drops $2,000 dollars or more, and a gun just
like that one you picked up. Note: He will shoot back -- try to
get a headshot. There is another drug dealer that is wearing a
white hooded sweatshirt that does the same thing. He can usually
be found up in the northeast part of Los Santos. You can find
these dealers all over Los Santos in the areas littered with gangs.
Go to the building with the parachute. When you get to the top,
spawn a Caddy. Get in and drive slowly towards the edge of the
building, then just fall off. You will begin to flip slowly. However,
if you nudge the edge of the building, the Caddy will spin and
flip like crazy. When you hit the ground, you will get a very
large insane stunt bonus.

and John Gilbey.
Drive around and hit Ballas. When they are dead, pick
up their guns then get back in your car and find more. This will
get you a lot of weapons very fast.
Easy Hitman rating
PlayStation2 This trick requires a controller in port two. To get an easy Hitman rating for either the 9 mm pistol or shotgun, go to the Los Santos Police Department. Note the two player icon across the street. Quickly enter the Police Department. Run and ignore any cops shooting at you and get the armor in the locker room. It is the first room on your right. There is an available pistol in the room on the right, at the far end of the hall. Proceed to dispose of the police using your pistol. If you need ammunition, the cops will drop a gun after you kill them. Your weapon skill will quickly raise as you kill the swarms of police that come after you. Continue shooting until your armor level becomes low or is gone. Then, run to the far end of the police station hall, down the stairs, and into the holding cells. In the middle cell is more armor. Use it and continue your massacre until your armor is once again depleted. Next, quickly run out of the door and across the street to the two player icon. Press R3 on controller two to enter two player mode. Simply kill the second player and your wanted level will be gone and your health will be refilled. Repeat this to gain Hitman status or simply gain ammunition. Note: Hitman status with the pistols will allow duel wielding, faster firing, improved accuracy, lock-on range increased and faster strafing. There is also a shotgun hidden in the police station in the room on your left as you enter, then to the room at the right at the end of that one. The shotgun may not respawn as soon as you enter, but in at least 60 seconds one should appear. You can use this available shotgun to reach Hitman status with. Note: Hitman status with the shotgun only gives you improved accuracy, move while firing, faster firing rate and lock-on range increased -- not duel wielding. Duel wielding can only be achieved with the sawed-off shotgun.
Go to the actual beach part of the Verona Beach area. Start shooting with the desired gun. The cops will arrive after awhile, but you can make them go away or just kill them for more. Keep doing this until the desired gun is at Hitman level. It is possible to get four weapons up to Hitman level in about an hour.
Walk out from CJ's house and make sure there a car in his garage. Use any weapon to shoot the car in the garage until it catches on fire. Walk away and let the garage close Then, open it and repeat the steps. You can do this with any weapon to get an easy Hitman level.
Go into the bar near CJ's house in the Ganton area. Kill everyone there and try to get a two or three star wanted level. Start killing the police that come through the door. When no one remains, turn around and look. They should be there.
To raise your weapon skills quickly, enter a dance club, such as the "Alhambra" in the Idlewood area. Begin shooting people with the weapon of your choice. Doing so during the afternoon or night hours (12:00to 04:00) greatly increases the amount of people that respawn in the club. Since so many people spawn, you have a virtually limitless amount of people to "train" with. Doing so however, raises your wanted level greatly. Enable the "Lower wanted level" code or know where the police bribes are, as you will need them.
PlayStation2 Drive to the Burger restaurant where OG Loc is working. Mark the location of the Pay 'N' Spray near the beach closest to this spot on your map. Go into the restaurant with a two or three star wanted level. Order food if needed, then hold the place up. Everyone will crouch down into a fetal position. You may kill them if desired, as they have some money. The police will morph into the building but they will be in the same position as the customers. They will not shoot you, never stop coming in (usually seven at a time). You have all the time needed to reach Hitman status on any gun. Make sure you have at least 400 bullets or more. You may also go back out and immediately return if you get hungry, but you must hurry to the counter. Sometimes the police will be eating there and they will shoot at you immediately. However, as soon as you aim your gun, they will stop, but the food will not be available if this is done. When you are finished, make sure all seven officers are alive in the building (this seems to cause less police shooting at you on the outside), then hold X + Left Analog-stick Right to run around to the back of the building. There are always two vehicles parked here. Take one and make two rights then a left to the Pay 'N' Spray. Wait inside until the flashing stars disappear. Do this for two weapons and you will have over half your reputation easily.
Go to your house in Grove Street. Start randomly killing people until you have two star wanted level. Kill all the cops with any desired weapon. Make sure you have armor on. When you have low health, save the game, then repeat.
Go into the Zip shop in downtown Los Santos (near Ammu-Nation). Shoot everyone with the desired weapon until you get a wanted star, then keep shooting until the police enter the store. Shoot them first, and because you are in the shop, it has a lot of cover areas (for example, behind clothes racks and the counter). You should always be able to get a clear shot, but they may not. You will have the advantage. After you get five stars, enable the "Lower wanted level" code and go outside. Your skill should have increased by a large amount.
Go to the Los Santos police station with your weapons out. You should get a two or three star wanted level. Quickly run to the second cell in the basement. Hide in the shadows until they rush into the cramped hallway. This will allow you to pick them off one at a time. Do this with every upgradeable weapon.
To raise your weaopn skill quickly, first get a good amount of ammo for the weapon you wish to use. Then, attain a three star wanted level or higher and go to the round skyscraper building in downtown Los Santos. Note: This is the building you can use the yellow marker to get to the top. You can drive a bike into the building if desired, and you will spawn on top with the bike. It is recommended that you bring a fast bike up there to make your escape easier. There is a NRG-500 on the second floor and another on the top floor of the parking lot, just to the right from the end of the tunnel that Big Smoke drives into at the end of the mission "Just Business". If you have trouble finding it, start at CJ's house in Ganton and go to the dried river just to the right of the house. Them, go to the three water outflows at the end of the river. There will be a small tunnel on the right. Follow it and you will end on an alleyway. Drive down it, and when you are back on the street, the parking lot will be just to the right of you. An easy method is to get on the bike, go to the Police HQ in Pershing Square, then drive into the underground parking lot. You will get a three star wanted level. Then, quickly drive to the building that is just a few blocks north of the HQ. Once atop the building, the police choppers will appear, flying around you. Because you are at the building, only the choppers will be able to reach you, and you will not have to worry with anything else no matter how high your wanted level is. Take out the weapon you wish to increase skill for and start shooting the choppers until they explode. Shooting them will be easy, as they will be flying at about the same height as you. You will notice your weapon skill increase very quickly (for each bullet that hits the chopper). Depending on the weapon you are using, you can get the Hitman skill by destroying about three or four choppers with the weapon. Keep a reasonable distance from them, though. If you get too close from the building's edges, they will be able to shoot you. If you stay near the middle you will still have enough range to hit them without being harmed. Once you are done, grab your bike and either drive it down the stairs and go through the exit; or launch from the top of the building. Jumping from the top with the bike will not harm you, if you pitch the bike correctly in the air in order to land on the two wheels -- you will not fall nor lose any health. Going through the exit can be hazardous, because as soon as you spawn on the floor there will be a lot of officers surrounding you. You can avoid them if you quickly run away from the door, then rush to the Pay'n'Spray located not too far away, beside a mod garage. Note: It is much easier to do this during daylight, as at night the choppers will turn on their searchlights, which will make it very difficult to aim at them.
Easy Stamina upgrade
Go to the Ganton Gym in Los Santos. Go to the bicycle
and start at level 1. Work your way up to level 10. After awhile
it will say that you have worked to your limit and to return.
Keep pedaling and your stamina will start to increase.
Use the following trick to get a lot of weapons, increase your
muscle, increase your stamina, and get a "Hitman" rating
with any weapon. After the initial mission, go to the Verona beach
area (on the south part of the map near the ocean). There is a
free open gym here. Use it to increase your muscle and stamina.
when you need to eat, there is a free hot dog stand down the path
east of the gym, or just save the game at your house. To get "Hitman"
status with any gun, find the weapon of your choice and shoot
people or cars. Try going to any parking lot and shooting cars.
It is easier and they respawn if you ride a short distance away
and return. You can get as much money as desired doing the fire
truck missions, then going to the off track betting after getting
at least $10,000. Bet 10% of your money on the last horse until
you win. If you lose too much money, reload your game and return.
Repeat this process until you have a good amount of money.
Reach other cities early
Use the following trick to get to the other cities
before their freeway entrances are actually open. Go to any bridge
that connects the start of city of Los Santos to any of the closed
cities. Jump into the water that is under that bridge and swim
across. When you get far enough, you will have a four star wanted
rating. Once you get on land, get a vehicle as soon as possible.
Note: You cannot use bribe icons or the Pay N' Spray to decrease
this wanted rating.
Fly plane without pilot license
Go to the airport then get to the place that you would
enter if you had a pilot license. If you try to get in the gate,
it will say you cannot unless you have the license. Next to the
gate is a small building. You will need a small car or any type
of bike (BMX, bike, motorcycles, etc.). Stand on top of it and
jump on top of the building. Jump off and you should see a fence.
Climb the fence and you will see a Dodo plane. Also, if you follow
the runway east, you will see a small jet that is unlocked.
To get into the Los Santos airport without a pilots license go
all the way south until you reach a tunnel. On the south side
of the tunnel, look along the fence line of the airport. Notice
how the sidewalk has an incline. Walk up the incline and climb
up the ledge where the bottom of the fence starts. Turn towards
the ramp sign and jump across. You should grab onto the sign.
Then, climb up on top of it, turn towards the fence, and jump.
You should jump across and grab the fence. CJ will pull himself
up and over, and you will be in the airport.
To access Los Santos International airport early, get a large
van and hop over the fence where the guard tells you that you
need a pilots license. You can also get any car and hop over the
fence around the corner from the guard. Once inside, you will
have to hop another fence, then you will find a Dodo. If you go
a little further inside near the runway, you will find a jet.
Go to either the airport and get to the place that you would enter
if you had a pilot license. If you try to get in the gate, it
will say you cannot unless you have the license. Next to the gate
is a small building. You will need a small car or any type of
bike (BMX, bike, motorcycles, etc.). Stand on top of it and jump
on top of the building. After you jump off of the building, just
walk around and look for a plane.
Get a car like a taxi. Drive it up to the gate on the left side
of the booth. Get out and jump on the car. Jump towards the gate.
You should be able to get in the airport.
Walk behind the Mullholland safe house to the pool.
Face the side that has five windows. Walk into the one closest
to the corner. Go to the area of that window that is away from
the corner. Slowly go in there and lean to the right. Unless you
go too slow and lead an officer in there, you will be safe. The
police can see you, but cannot hurt you, even when you have the
maximum amount of stars on your wanted meter.
Quick map fill
To get all of the map showing in the starting area
if the game, get on the freeway and continue going until you cannot
go further. Then, pause game play. The entire bottom right half
of the map should be marked as explored.
Unlock more gang territories
Get in a Rustler from the abandoned airport and fly
southeast. Once you pass Los Santos International Airport, fly
to the top of the second altitude bar and release X to
allow the plane fly in autopilot. About every three minutes, look
at your stats and examine the Gang section to find that the Vagos
or the Ballas have gained a territory. Sometimes the Grove Street
also takes more territories. To get the entire map filled with
gang territories, let the plane autopilot for over two hours.
Check you plane periodically so that it does not crash in the
ocean. Once you die, the territories will be visible on the map.
Buffy The Vampire Slayer reference
Visit the graveyard where CJ's mom is buried. Enter the large white crypt by the wall you must climb over during one of the missions. Inside is a television, a chair, and two pizza boxes. This is a reference to Spike from Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
Enter the bar near CJ's house. Along with various
other paintings on the inside walls, there will be the red-eyed
elite guardsmen that worked for the Director in Manhunt.
True Crime: Streets Of L.A. reference
There is a billboard in the Los Flores area that
is advertising "True Grime".
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City reference
Near the Vinewood area and the Market district,
there is a giant studio company that you can enter. If you look
at it, these buildings are the same ones that are at Interglobal
Studios in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Keep looking around
the building and you will see the front offices. In big letters,
the name of the company is posted. It is Interglobal Television.
In the "Sunset Strip" area ,you can see a
train car parked off the street (near the hill that you drive
up to get to Mad Dog's mansion). This is supposed to be Carney's,
the burger joint that is actually on the real Sunset Strip in
Earlier in the game, across the street where you meat Tenpenny
(at a donut shop) for a mission, look at the wall across the street.
You can see an advertisement for "Blob Music", which
is a reference to Amoeba Music which can be found in Hollywood,
Berkeley, and San Francisco. The design looks almost identical
to that of the real business.
In the opening sequence before you start the game (with the game
credits), watch the pictures that are shown. In one picture is
a building in Vinewood. This is a reference to the Capitol Records
building in Hollywood. The building in the game is located next
to the All Saints Hospital in Vinewood..
