Fort Baxter Air Force Base: Entering without a wanted level
Use this trick to enter the military base without getting
the law on you. Complete the Cop Land mission at the Vercetti
Estate. After you complete it, you will get the police uniform.
It is located at the VCPD HQ at Washington Beach. Go into the
locker room and put it on. Then, get a police car from the parking
lot in the back and drive to the Fort Baxter Air Force Base. You
can now enter the base and be able to get the Hunter attack helicopter.
Note: This is best done between 20:00 and 24:00.
Submarine and cargo ship
You can find a sunken ship and a submarine up north
off the coast. The submarine is directly north of Ammu-Nation
and The Tool Store at Vice Point Mall. The cargo ship is east
of the submarine.
Note: The submarine is Soviet, as indicated by the red star on
Colonel Cortez's sunken yacht
PlayStation2 After you finish the Colonel's missions, continue the
game until you are able to get a helicopter. Find the harbor on
the third island and fly to the south of it. Look around and you
should see an oddly colored object under the water. Switch to
first person view while in the helicopter and press L2
+ R2 at the same time to look beneath you. You should be
able to see the Colonel's sunken ship.
On the first island somewhere along the thin channel
is a docked Dingy. Take it and go south until it opens up into
the ocean. Make sure you can see the bottom along the left wall.
As soon as it opens up. follow it and you will se a man at the
bottom with his feet in a cement block.
Get to second island early
Use the following trick to get to the second island
without cheating, or having the "saving cheat and bad reputation"
message. This trick requires a Coach, one other car, and $1,000.
Take the Coach bus to the Marina (where Colonel Cortez's yacht
is located). Drive very fast past his dock and go to the second
one. The second dock has many boats. Ram into the tree that is
next to the gate. The tree should shatter and disappear. Next,
take the bus and line it up along side of the dock, facing out
toward the water. Get the front wheels up on the ledge. Use your
other car to push the Coach into the water. Once the bus is in
the water, jump on top of it and walk towards the other end of
the roof of the bus. The Coach will be long enough to allow you
to bypass the locked gate and hop back onto the pier. Then, take
a boat and drive it to the second island. To save your game, go
the Skumole Shack just north of the Greasy Chopper bar. Use your
$1,000 to buy it and save the game. Now that you are here, you
can get the helicopter from the police station and go back and
forth as needed.
PlayStation2 Complete 100 taxi missions. Your taxi will now be equipped with
hydraulics. Get into a taxi and go to the Marina. Go up to the
far gate and line up with it. Reverse your taxi so you can get
a run up. Accelerate towards the gate. Press L3 just before
hitting it and your taxi will jump into the air and mysteriously
fly through the gate. Once you are on the other side, get out
of your taxi and get into one of the boats. You can now ride to
the second island. Note: This may require a few attempts.
Go to the hospital at Ocean Beach. The bridge next to it is blocked
off at the start of the game. On the right side there is a gap
between two cement road barriers. Start at the last intersection
before the bridge with a PCJ 600 and floor it. Aim directly at
the gap between the two cement barriers on the right. You will
pass right through them. This may require few attempts. You may
also return through the same gap, but make sure you have enough
Go to the northwest part of the island and look for a large white
building with docks behind it. There should be a Cheetah next
to the dock. Line it up diagonally to the dock with the front
of the car pointing towards the opposite way of the road. Walk
along the edge of the parking lot until you find a PEG 800 motorcycle.
Get on the motorcycle and start driving straight towards the Cheetah.
Before you hit it, do a wheelie, then bail immediately when you
hit it. You will fly off and land on the dock. Then, jump in a
boat and drive to the other island. This is very difficult and
will probably require a few attempts.
Get a PCJ-600 or a Freeway bike. Drive up the ramp on the east
street of Prawn Island and jump the ramps on the roof to get into
Interglobal Films. You will find a Packer in the northeast corner
of the lot. If you park the Packer at the correct angle and distance
from the north wall, you will be able to jump your bike past the
barricade and on the bridge. This will take a few attempts. The
only way to return is by flying the police helicopter found north
of the Greasy Chopper.
Jump on the railing of the Prawn Island Bridge. Wait for a boat
to pass under it. Aim and jump. Repeat this until you actually
manage to land in the boat. Note: The owner will jump into the
water in a panic. Drive the boat to the other island.
Get to any locked area early
PlayStation2 Enable the "Dodo
car" code and use any car. Go as fast as you can and press
Analog-stick Back jump over the highest obstruction blocking
the next section of the game. Keep repeating this until you get
Get a sniper rifle and find a place where boats are appearing.
Wait until one is coming roughly straight at you, then take out
the man piloting it with the rifle. If the boat was moving fast
enough, it will coast up to you. You should be able to jump onto
it. From there, you can get to almost anywhere. It may take awhile
to find out good spots to try this. One recommended location is
behind Diaz's mansion in the lawn behind the hedge maze.
Enable the "Cars float on water" code. Then, simply
drive on the water to get to any island.
PlayStation2 While traveling at high speeds in
an Infernus hit the gate the connects the both islands. If done
correctly, you can go through the gate on the right side. Half
of your vehicle will be on one side of the gate, and the other
half will be on the other side. You can press Triangle
to step outside your vehicle on the other side of the closed gate.
Each rampage you complete gives you an extra $50 on
the next one you do.
