Admiral: Damage-proof

Play the Guardian Angels mission. Fail the mission and take the Admiral that your associates arrived in. It is dent and bullet proof.

After you pass or fail the Guardian Angels mission, go to the white car to the right of the stairs that you will go back down. This car is bulletproof, fireproof, and damage proof. However, if it flips upside down it will explode and will still cause you to drown if driven into water.

It is possible to obtain this car after passing the Guardian Angels mission. After you pass the mission, Diaz turns left and he disappears, leaving the Admiral in the middle of the intersection.

When you are about to complete the Guardian Angels mission by entering the pink circle, shoot Diaz's car. When Tommy asks "Where's Lance?", turn left and Diaz's car will be there without him inside.

Make sure you have a garage to save this vehicle. Play the mission where you have to chase a man down an alley on a dirt bike and retrieve your Boss' briefcase. Your Boss' white Admiral is bulletproof and wreck proof. Instead of going back to talk to him. carefully park cars in front of his car. You may want to use tanks. Make sure he cannot drive off. Talk to him, he will bid you farewell then try to drive off. After awhile he will disappear from the driver's seat. Get in, park the car in your garage, and save the game. You can keep this indestructible car throughout the game. Note: The tires can be popped, and if a tank hits it you it will explode.

When the ambulance reaches a red light and a car is in front of it, the ambulance will hit the car and you will start to get thrown off. To prevent this, move towards the center of the ambulance. The same thing will happen when the ambulance is going around a corner.

NOS and


Go to Escobar International Airport and go straight around the terminal to find a Caddy.

Get outside the golf course on the road for the main entrance. Walk on that road in front of the main entrance, constantly looking at the street next to it. When you see a Caddy coming in the distance, run in the direction its going to cut him off. If you run out of energy, shoot at the Caddy with a pistol. The driver should get out and run away.

Jack a Caddy while in the Leaf Links golf course. There is a ramp to the right of the entrance of the golf course off a paved road/walkway. It will take you to the entrance outside of Leaf Links. You can get any of your weapons back that you had to drop to enter Leaf Links by doing this.

Go to the lighthouse in the Ocean Beach area. Before you cross the bridge, you should see a Rampage icon to your left next to a big huge bush near the street. After you cross the bridge, walk up to the first or second bush to your right. If you look very close, you may be able to see something there. Stand next to the bush and press Triangle (PlayStation2) or Y (Xbox). Tommy should immediately run inside the bush and hop in the hidden Caddy. Note: There is also a Hidden Package on the steps to the lighthouse.

Enable the "Car floats on water" code then get in a Caddy at Leaf Links. Drive it into the ocean and just head towards the beach at Vice Point or Washington Beach.

Caddy: Drive out of the golfing area

 PlayStation2  enable the "Dodo car" code. Steal a golf cart (Caddy) and drive towards the exit area (where the view is from a security camera). Instead of going in that area, go up the grass hill to the left of the stairs. Fly over the house by pressing Analog-stick Down. Try to avoid the windows which pop out and stop you from flying. If you make it on the roof, go right or left immediately to avoid the big pillar then continue down to the street. This may be difficult at first, but can be done with some practice.

Steal a Caddy, then take it to the building where you first entered. Drive it off to the right, where there is a ramp you can take to get onto the street outside of Leaf Links.

Caddy: Front flips and barrel rolls

Enable the "Better driving skills" code and steal a Caddy from somewhere. When going fast enough, press R3 to jump. As soon as you land, press R3 again to do a front flip. Some practice may be required to get the correct timing. To do a barrel roll repeatedly, jump it three times and when it starts rolling over, turn the wheels in the opposite direction that you are rolling. Keep the wheels turned, then it will keep rolling over.

Caddy: Fast version

Enable the "Change wheel size" code four or more times. Then, spawn a Caddie. You now have a "Super Caddie" which has faster speed. Ranchers,Dune Buggys , and Baggage Handlers have the same effect. This also makes Banshees and Comets act like tanks. You can also enable the "Perfect handling" code to do wheelies.


Go to the docks behind the warehouse (where the party boat is located) and look around for a Cheetah. This car respawns often. If you steal it too much, it may not spawn for a long time.

Cheetah: Variations

Look at the mirrors on the Cheetahs. Some of them only have a mirror on the driver's side door and are higher. The others have two mirrors, mounted lower.

Cheetah, FBI

The FBI Cheetah can be found on the left side of the map at the police station near the bottom at about 21:00 until 1:00.

Coach: Easy money

Hijack a Coach bus. You can ride around town and look for the bus stop signs. You will make $5 for each person you pick up. Sometimes you can even wait at the bus stop and people will start entering the bus.

Coach: Ride with cops

Go to a bus stop and wait for a bus. Get in and kill the driver. Attract the police, get them near the door, then go in. The police will enter with you but you will not get caught.

Coach: Easier getaway from cops

If you are running from the cops, hijack a Coach. Even though they are very slow, they are very big and can withstand a lot of damage. The police cars cannot stop it or make it spin out. Unfortunately, when the bus catches on fire, it takes a long time to get out of it, and there is a good chance that you will get wasted.

Coach: Drive with many women

Enable the "Tommy groupies" code and get a Coach. Let women get in with you. If you exit the bus, all the women that were riding with you will get off and follow you.

Coast Guard boat

Go to the bridge leading from Starfish Island to Little Haiti. Go down the road until you see the first big boat. Look for a small strip dock. Go to the end and look in the water. You should see a different looking boat; just fall off onto it.

Once you unlock the second island, go to Vice Port and go to the place where you meet Rico (from the Cuban mission Naval Engagement). Go onto the docks heading north. You will see a wire from the water. Go near it and enter the boat. You should now be in the Coast Guard boat.

Cuban Hearse: Fire on wheels

 PlayStation2  Jack a Cuban Hearse. Hold R1 + X and look at the back tires. There will be fire coming out of the wheels.

Cuban Jetmax

Buy the shipyard in Vice Port for $10,000. The boat will respawn there and will be yours for the taking.


To get the Deluxo, you must first purchase Sunshine Autos. Go down to where all of the garages are and look for one with a dry-erase board next to it. This board indicates what cars you need to bring to that garage. Once you bring in all of the cars, you will receive the Deluxo and Sunshine Autos will also begin making money for you.

FBI Rancher

Get your wanted level to five stars. When the FBI arrives, they will do so in a FBI Rancher.

FBI Washington

Go downtown to the Well Stacked Pizza. Go to the nearby alley (the south alley shaped like a near perfect square on the map). Look around to find a black Washington. If it is not there, then drive away a distance (like to Hyman Memorial Stadium) then return. If not, do it again.

Fire truck

As soon as you have completed the "Demolition Man" mission for Avery, go under the building you blew up. You should find a fire truck there. If not, there might be one on the road extinguishing the fire.
Sambo 12.

Gang Burrito

The Gang Burrito is located on Prawn Island on the front porch of a graffitied house. It is a red van with a red


Hotring Racer

Complete the fourth and final list of cars at Sunshine Auto.

You can unlock the Hotring Demolition Derby cars by successfully completing all three events in the stadium. The two cars will be parked over by the left side of the stadium.

Hotring Racer: Third type

Go to Sunshine Autos after the asset is fully completed. Take the racer from the showroom, then use the codes to spawn Hotring Racers 1 and 2. Line them up and compare them to see that there are in fact three different Hotring Racers.


Once you have completed the Keep Your Friends Close mission, a Hunter will be available at the back of Fort Baxter Air Base near the airport. To get it, either use the police uniform which is unlocked after a certain mission is completed (located at the Washington Beach police department, inside the locker room to the left of the entrance), or simply fly a helicopter high overhead to the back of the base, then quickly land and get in the Hunter.

Get a helicopter and get your wanted level to two stars. Go to Fort Baxter Air Base. You should see the Hunter in the back, where its fenced in. Bail out when you are directly over the Hunter. Get in and repeatedly enable the "Health" code to recover from the soldiers that are shooting at you. Get airborne and fly out of there.

After collecting all 100 hidden packages, the Hunter will be available at the helipad in the Ocean Beach area at the southern tip of the first island.
Christopher Jensen.

Go to the police station in Washington Beach (located about three blocks south of the Malibu Club). Walk inside, turn left to the locker room and get the uniform there. Note: It only appears there after the Copland mission has been completed. Go into Fort Baxter Air Base. The military will then not consider you an enemy, and thus not fire. Break the barricade at the base and immediately go north (left). You will see stairs there. Get out, climb up those stairs, and run towards the catwalk for the building that you are in. Go through the catwalk and down the stairs on the other side of the fence (that contains the Rhino). You need to be able to reach the high guard tower (or that area). Once you are close to the guard tower, run to the obstacle course, then all the way across it. When you are at the other side, make a left turn and go through the gate.

Once you complete the story missions, look in the Ocean Beach area at the house near the docks of the Cortez missions. It has a helipad, which should now spawn a Hunter. You no longer need to run around in Fort Baxter Air Base to get it.

To get the Hunter easier, complete the game, get the usual police uniform, and enable the "Pedestrians riot" code. When you fly overhead, the soldiers guarding Fort Baxter Air Base will be too busy killing each other to cause too much trouble.

 PlayStation2  Once in the Hunter, press R3 to begin Brown Thunder vigilante mission.

Play the All Hands on Deck mission and get to the part where the bridge is blocked off. Note: Do not unblock the bridge as it will give you as much time as you want to get the Hunter. Wait until two Maverick helicopters appear and destroy them. A Hunter will appear and shoot at you. As it makes passes over the ship to attack you, shoot the pilot through the cockpit windows. The pilot will fall out of the helicopter. If done correctly, the Hunter should land on the ship perfectly. If it spun out on the ship, quickly get in the Hunter and enable the "Health" code to fix it. Fly it to the docks, land, fail the mission by using a manual aimed gun (sniper rifle preferred) to shoot Cortez. The game should restart at the docks and the Hunter should be where you landed. Note: If you use the Hunter to pass the mission, you end up in a Speeder boat upon completion.

Use the following time-sensitive trick to get a Hunter without any codes. Wait just outside the Fort Baxter Air Base in a helicopter over water at 6:50. Begin a run, then just land and take the Hunter. The Army appear to be sleeping at this time.

Hunter: Weapons

 PlayStation2  While in the Hunter, press R1 to fire the minigun mounted on the front or Circle to fire two rockets from the wings.
Christopher Jensen.

Hunter: Saving at hideout

Acquire a property with a large garage, such as the Hyman condo. Get the Hunter and take it to the Hyman Condo. Fly down from above to the western-most garage. Make sure this garage is empty. There should be enough space for you to fly down. Place it on the ground, positioning it so that its winglets are exactly parallel to the garage doors and can easily pass through it. If you find it difficult to place the Hunter in this position because of the limited space, get out of it and push it to this position. Push it up to the garage door, then place yourself behind a winglet and push it into the garage. Push it all the way to the end until it cannot go any further. Exit the garage and the Hunter will be inside. To get it out, simply push it in the opposite direction and out of the garage. Try experimenting with different garages to see how it works. If the garage is big enough, it should fit nicely.

Infernus: Mall appearance

Destroy most of the cars in the multistory car garage at Northpoint Mall. When you return, most of the cars will be replaced with Infernuses.

Love Fist Limo

Start the Love Fist mission Psycho Killer in Downtown. Then, drive it into one of your garages. The Sunshine Autos car showroom or Hyman Condo are your best choices. <A NAME="UQHTML219">Information in this section was contributed by ].


Steal a vehicle and drive it through the front doors of the Vercetti Estate and a Maverick helicopter will appear on the helipad on the roof.

Moonbeam: Two wheel bonueses

A good vehicle to get two-wheel bonuses in is the Moonbeam. Get up to speed and start turning left, right, left, right, and so forth and you will go up on two wheels. Then, you just need to balance, which just requires some practice.

Oceanic: Drive on two wheels

Get in an Oceanic and reach top speed. Then, on a turn, hold Square + Left or Right. The Oceanic will get on two wheels. To get back on all four wheels, just press in the opposite direction.

It is easy to kill a police helicopter with a sniper rifle. Aim at the cockpit windows and fire at six or more times.

When the Police Maverick comes after you, get a short distance away from it. Take out a sniper rifle and zoom in fully. Aim and fire at the rod between the top blades and the helicopter. In one hit, it will explode.

Pony: Black

Do the Loose Ends phone mission. Kill everyone, but do not finish the mission. Go get two Packers and drive them both as if you are playing leapfrog or else they will disappear. Park one of them in front of the gate that you came in. Drive the other Packer up its ramp so that it goes over the gate.

Note: Enable "Car floats on water" code" in case you land in the water. Find a long main road, then accelerate and press Circle at the same time. This will make the tank get faster until you finally take off. Hold Left Analog-stick Down to make the vehicle get higher. You can occasionally get on top of some skyscrapers, depending on the height of the buildings.

 PlayStation2  To make a Rhino fly longer than usual, enable the "Car floats on water" and "Dodo car" code. Go into the water, turn the turret so it is facing backwards, then make the tank fly by holding Down or Left Analog-stick Down. You can do this on land, but it is easier on water as there is more space, After it is flying, keep pressing Circle. This will make the Rhino fly high by giving it boosts of speed. You should be able to get so high that you can land anywhere. You can also go higher than a helicopter can. When you get high enough, you can stop pressing Circle and it will fly without shooting. You can do a flip by shooting while holding Down or Left Analog-stick Down.

Rhino: Shoot out of water

Drive a Rhino into the water, and before you drown, enable the "Car floats on water" code. Your tank will immediately shoot out of the water very high and land back on the water, good as new. Use this when a boat is passing and to land on and destroy it.

Rhino: Destroying them

If you have Rhino Tanks trying to get you, throw Molotov Cocktails at them. About five to ten cocktails will destroy the tank. Or, if you rather risk dying, use the flamethrower instead. You can also kill both driver and passenger in the tank.

Rhino: Kill tank drivers with gun

If you have a sniper rifle, take aim at the Rhino. Aim it just directly below the turret, in front of the tank. You will see the head of two soldiers inside. Snipe the one of the right, as that is the driver. The one on the left will either exit (then shoot you) or take driver seat and drive.

Look down and you should see two Romero Hearses. The one next to the pizza place will almost always have a coffin in the back. Jump down and take one to your garage. You can also come back for another Romero Hearse and the black Voodoo. The car will not always be fixed when you put it in your garage for the first time. Return after the mission and take it out. When the garage door shuts, drive it back in. It should now be fixed.

Rumpo: Jumping

The vehicle that can jump best with the "Better driving skills" code enabled is the Rumpo. Enabling the "Faster game play" code will not make it jump any higher.

Sabre Turbo

Complete the second list of cars at Sunshine Auto.

Sabre Turbo: Damage proof

This Sabre Turbo is bullet proof, explosion proof, and flame proof. It can receive damage and blown off tires but cannot explode, even if flipped over. In order to get it, you must first purchase the Malibu Club and do the mission called The Driver. In this particular mission, you will be racing Hilary the getaway driver. He will be the one driving the BP Turbo Sabre. Do the mission and try to stick with Hilary throughout the race. He does the race nearly perfect. When you get to the end make, sure you have Hilary in your sights as you let him pass the finish line first. Once you have done this, the "Mission Failed" message will appear and Hilary will disappear in the Turbo. Enable the "Lower wanted level" code. The Sabre will be locked. You will have to push it with another car to the nearest Hideout. The El Swanko Casa or the Links Leaf View apartment are recommended. Push the Sabre Turbo into your garage and wait for it to close. After that, you have a new BP Sabre Turbo.

It is possible to acquire this vehicle in The Driver mission, although Hilary keeps his door locked during the race making it unjackable. The race ends back at the Malibu Club. Behind the Malibu Club is a little bridge. When the race begins, do not race Hilary. Instead, head in the opposite direction to the bridge south of the Malibu Club. Spawn three Rhino tanks across the bridge and wait for Hilary to appear. He will try his best to push the tanks out of the way. Quickly spawn a fourth Rhino and crush his vehicle. With patience, use the Rhino to push the Sabre Turbo into the closest garage (Vercetti Estates). When your garage door reopens, you will have a brand new bullet and flame proof Turbo Sabre.

Note: After you acquire the bulletproof Sabre Turbo, do not get it resprayed or it will lose its bulletproof abilities.

Also, if the bulletproof Sabre flips over, it will not explode but will no longer be be invincible any more. There is another way to get it. When the race first starts, get out of the car, take out the sniper rifle, and shoot him in the head when he approaching the finish line.

Sanchez: Black

Go to the dirtbike track in the upper-right hand corner of the Downtown area. Get on the dirtbike and wait for it to start the mission, but do not go anywhere. After the mission starts, get off the bike. A timer should appear at the bottom of the screen with the number of seconds you have to get back on the dirtbike. Wait at the bike until the timer gets to "1", then look around for a group of men who are riding all black Sanchezs. Shoot one of them and take the bike. Note: After you get off the dirtbike mission, do not run away. Stay in that area until time runs out.


Complete the third list of cars at Sunshine Auto.

Go to the apartment building near there that has one of the windows open. Go up to the roof. There are two other flights of stairs in plain sight when you look at the apartment -- this makes it easy to find the correct location. Go to the north of the roof and jump off onto another roof. Finally, jump off the roof into a yard. The Sea Sparrow helicopter is located next to the trees. If it does not appear here, leave and return later. Note: This helicopter can float.

To get the Sea Sparrow without having to get the eighty packages, after completing the InterGlobal Studio missions, go to the first building you went to on your motorcycle from the G-spotlight mission. The Sea Sparrow will be on the roof of that building.

Pick them up and get in Sentinel. Finish the mission and you will now have a pitch black Sentinel.

Sentinel XS

Near Escobar International Airport, you will see a sign that reads "Long Term Parking". There is a sporty-looking Sentinel in the parking lot there that is much faster and better looking than a normal one.


To get the seaplane, buy the InterGlobal Films studio on Prawn Island for $60,000. After the purchase, complete Steve Scott's second mission "Dildo Dodo". After you have completed the mission, the Skimmer seaplane will be available to you at the dock on the west side of the studio (the same dock where you got the plane for his mission).

To get the Spand Express, play the game until the Riot mission. Enable the "Car drives on water" code. Make sure you have at least $14,000. Before doing this mission, drive a car to the Docks and go north. Buy the Hyman Condo. Set any car on fire, then go in it to commit suicide. You should end up back on the other side. During the Riot mission, you will have to destroy three Spand Express Cars. Destroy only two, and drive the third across the ocean to the condo. Put it in the garage. Close the garage and open it again. Use a gun to destroy the Spand Express to pass the mission. Close the garage door again and the Spand Express will be back. Commit suicide again to return to Vice City. If desired, you can keep all of the Spand Expresses by driving each one to the condo, then stealing a car and driving back to the other side to get the others. Then, blow them all up at once in the large garage.

Spand Express: Gold

To get the gold Spand Express, play until the Jury Fury mission. Enable the "Car drives on water" code. Make sure you have at least $14,000. Before doing this mission, drive a car to the Docks and go north. Buy the Hyman Condo. Set any car on fire, then go in it to commit suicide. You should end up back on the other side. At some point during the Jury Furymission, a gold Spand Express should ram one of the jurors, dropping two hammers. Get the juror out of the car and take the Spand Express. Drive it to the Hyman Condo and put it in the garage. Commit suicide to return to Vice City.


Go to the Pay 'N' Spray near the mall in Vice Point. Turn so that you are facing south, away from the mall. Start driving up the road at a slow speed while using your side view to look at the left side of the street. Not too far down, you will see an archway. Drive into it and take the right into the fence to find the Sparrow and the Checkpoint Challenge.

Sparrow: Damage and waterproof

Get the Sparrow helicopter during the G-Spotlight mission next to the building, above the stairs. Take it to a Pay 'N' Spray fly into it without crashing. The easiest one is at the Sunshine Autos paint shop, due to its enormous width. Note: The Sparrow is the only helicopter that can fit into a Pay 'N' Spray. After you paint it, the Sparrow will have wheels. When you enable the "Floating Cars" code, it can now float on the water like a Sea Sparrow. Additionally, without the downside of those landing rods, it is safer to land on ground.


Buy the shipyard in Vice Port for $10,000. The boat will respawn there and will be yours for the taking.

Stretch: Gold

During the Martha's Mug Shot mission, there will be a golden Stretch awaiting Candy. All the doors are locked. Shoot the driver with a sniper rifle in the head. When he is decapitated, he will fall out the door. Do not get in. Turn around and shoot Candy before she gets in. After the mission failed message appears, get into the Stretch and drive towards one of your empty garages. Park it inside and wait for the door to shut. When it opens, the Stretches door will not automatically close and lock any more. Note: If you get out of The stretch before you get it into your garage, you will not be able to enter it again, unless you push it into your garage.

In the Martha's Mug Shot, shoot the driver of the golden Stretch. He will fall out, leaving the door open. Do not hurt Candy. Instead, let her get in with you. When it drives away after it drops off Candy, the golden Stretch will stop, and you will not be able to drive it. Get out, but do not allow the door to shut. Get back in, and you can now drive it to a garage and continue with the mission.

Taxi: Free rides

Complete the Kaufman Cabs missions to have Taxis drive you to mission locations or objectives.

VCN Maverick

Go to the VCN building in the Downtown area. Go upstairs to find a VCN Maverick.

Voodoo: Hydraulics

 PlayStation2  To work the hydraulics in the Voodoo, press R3.

 PlayStation2  When in the Voodoo, tap L3 to turn all four hydraulics on or off. You can also move the Right Analog-stick from side to side to make only your left or right hydraulics work.

Voodoo: Black

Do the Two Bit Hit mission for Avery Carrington. Get the Havana costume and a helicopter. Land on the building opposite the pizza place in Little Haiti. Look down, and you should see the pitch black Voodoo. Jump down and take it to your garage. The car will not always be fixed when you put it in your garage for the first time. Return after the mission and take it out. When the garage door shuts, drive it back in. It should now be fixed.

In the Two Bit Hit mission, your objective is to grab a Haitian costume and eliminate the person driving the hearse. Note that some of the Voodoos that are chasing you are black. When they first spot you, grab a black Voodoo and high-tail it out of there. Do no respray it. It will return to brown if this is done. When the Cubans spot you, you can also take a sniper rifle or a bazooka and shoot the designated target. Then, steal the black Voodoo and dash out of there as fast as possible. Note: If you complete the mission and somehow flip the car over, sink it, or destroy it, you can never regain the car. If your garage door is open with the Voodoo in it when you save, all the cars in that garage will be lost.


After completing kaufman cabs missions, the Zebra taxi will appear in Kaufman Cab building, where the original cab was located.

Buy the Kaufman Cab business and complete the first two missions. Make sure you have a garage to store a car. On the third mission where you have to pick up Mercedes, go and survive against the enemy taxis until the Boss appears. The Boss has a black and yellow striped taxi. Catch it on fire so the driver jumps out. Then, get out of your Kaufman Cab, jump in to the enemy taxi, and enable the "Heath" code. Make sure you are away from the enemy taxi driver so he does not pull you out of the car. If done in time, you will have an extra Zebra taxi that seems to be faster and takes a lot more damage than usual. Be careful to not blow it up, as it will not appear again.

Zebra: Duplicate

After completing the Kaufman Cab missions, get the Zebra taxi and put it in a garage that you own. Return to Kaufman Cabs and another one will be there.

Boats: Get early

 PlayStation2  Enable the "Cars float on water" code. Drive into the water and the car will start floating. Find a boat and drive on top of it. Press Triangle and you should land on top of the boat. The person driving the boat will jump in the water and you can steal the boat.

Cars: Bailing out while driving

 PlayStation2  To jump out of a car while it is moving, press Triangle + Square. Tommy will duck and roll and will sustain much less damage than the car.

Cars: Flipping back over

 PlayStation2  When the vehicle is rolling, sometimes it gets onto its side then flips back onto its roof. To get your car flipped back over when it is on its side, simply floor the gas and turn the wheel in the direction the roof is facing. For example, if your car is on its right side, press Left Analog-stick Right then press X.

 PlayStation2  If your car is on its side and seconds away from tipping over, press the Left Analog-stick towards the direction the car is falling, and drive in reverse. This should flip your car back onto four wheels. This is extremely helpful with the Ambulance missions, as it is more top heavy than normal vehicles.

Cars: Front flip

 PlayStation2  Enable the "Better driving skills" code. Drive fast then hold the handbrake and press L3 or R3. This only works on certain cars (Cheetah recommended). Try jumping over the parked semis in the boat dock area with the Esperanto. Also, the Esperonto is the highest jumping.

Cars: 360s

 PlayStation2  Enable the "Better driving skills" code. Drive fast and making a sharp turn while pressing L3 or R3.

Cars: Leave door open

 PlayStation2  Exit a car while holding R1. You will not close the door, which can be useful if you know that you are going to need to get back in quickly.
Colonel Schvats.

Cars: Drive inside buildings

Find a building that has enough space in the door to drive a car into. Slowly drive the car so its front end is partially in the building. Get out of the car and stand behind its bumper. Hold X to run and push the car into the building. The car will only go so far in. Once you cannot move the car in any further, go inside the building. Once inside turn around, and you will see the car. Press Triangle to get in the car and drive it around.

Cars: Drive with different handling

 PlayStation2  Get in a vehicle (faster one recommended). Press X + Square and the wheels should begin spinning. Keep spinning the wheels and use the Left Analog-stick to begin doing a doughnut. When the vehicle has done a 180 (when showing the front, not the back) hold R2 + L2 to flip to view to the normal, rear view of the car. You can now release X + Square, but continue holding R2 + L2. You can drive the vehicle in this position. Notice that it handles differently. This may be useful during certain missions.

Cars: Faster destruction

Shoot a car in the back near the gas tank and it will light on fire faster.

Cars: Wheelie

Enable the "Change wheel size" code about five times. Find a car like the Bobcat, Baggage Carrier, Rancher, or any other car that goes faster than normal. Then, enable the "Better driving skills" code. When you hit the gas, you will pop a wheelie.

Enable the "Change wheel size" code more than three times. Then, enable the "Perfect handling" code and go to the runway at Escobar International Airport. Find a Baggage Handler to pop wheelies. You can also do this trick with a Rancher, Mesa, Landstalker, Caddy, or Patriot.

Cars: Full flip

This trick works best in a police or sports car. Enable the "Better driving skills" code. Gain a lot of speed, then hold the emergency brake and immediately press L3. Note: Precise timing is required.

Helicopters: Easy find

Go to Hyman Condos and buy it. You will get a helicopter every time you go upstairs.

Go to the Downtown district (on the second island). Go to the Downtown police station and you will find a cop car parked by the street. There will be an alley behind it. Go down the alley and make a right turn. There will be a stairway there. Go up the stairs to the helipad. There usually is a police helicopter sitting there.

From Starfish Island, go towards the Downtown area of Vice City (not to the police station). As you enter Downtown, go past the man that stands by the motorcycles by The Greasy Chopper and continue onwards. Go past the first light then look towards the left. There will be a white staircase going up. Climb up to the top and walk to the other side of the roof. Once at the end, there should be a green helicopter there. Jump down, then go up the rusted stairs to the helipad. If the helicopter is not there, leave and return later.

Go towards where Colonel Cortez' yacht is located in Ocean Beach. On the turn off the street to go to Colonel, turn instead into the grassy area. There will be steps leading up to a helicopter.

Helicopters: Hovering

 PlayStation2  Hold L3 while flying a helicopter-class vehicle to hover. This can be used to immediately slow down while flying fast.

Helicopters: Drive by shootings

 PlayStation2  If you have an Uzi, Ingram, or Tec-9, change your camera to the cinematic view while in a helicopter. You will see Tommy stick his weapon out through the chopper's side window when you hold L2 or R2 to rotate. Press Circle as usual to fire. Note: You are still going to rotate while doing this and the cinematic view is not the best in combat situations. It will take an extreme amount of luck to hit anything when doing this, let alone kill someone. Do not rely on this in a real fight.

It is possible to stay in one spot and shoot out the window of a helicopter, without spinning around... Press L3 in cinematic view, and hold either L2 or R2 and press Circle. Pressing L3 stops you from moving and causes the helicopter to hover when you shoot. You will not spin around, making your shots precise.

Motorcycles: Wheelies

 PlayStation2  Press Down(2) while riding a motorcycle-class vehicle to pop a wheelie. Press Up(2) while riding to stand.

 PlayStation2  Get a PCJ 600. From a stop, press Down and press X. When the motorcycle is in a wheelie, tap the X rapidly to keep the bike up. This will allow you stay in the wheelie for as long as desired. This is also a great way to make money.

 PlayStation2  Get a moped. Hold R1 + Square + Up until the moped is doing a stoppie. Hold all those buttons, then hold X. The moped should remain doing a stoppie until you release X. Note: the moped will slide on its wheel and it will turn. Try controlling it for big cash.

Get a Sanchez or PCJ 600 and go a little faster than traffic. Get behind a slanted back car, such as a Sabre, and pop a wheelie. Half of the time you can wheelie over the car and get insane stunt bonuses.

 PlayStation2  Hold Down/Left or Down/Right, and accelerate on a PCJ 600 or similar bike to do 180 wheelies quickly.

 PlayStation2  Hold Down + X and get to a wheelie level. When you are comfortable with the height, hold X lightly to remain level and go as far as desired. Note: Wheelies cannot be done if the "Flying car (Dodo)" code is enabled.

 PlayStation2  Get on a Sanchez and start a wheelie. When you are slightly more than half-way up, release X. Tap X every once in awhile to keep your speed up.

 PlayStation2  Gain some speed then press Square + R1 while pressing Forward on the Analog-stick or D-pad. This will make you slide on your front tire (stoppie). This trick will gain you between $20 and on average.

 PlayStation2  Get a Sanchez. Go to a long straight away, like on the third island. Get to about half the speed that the Sanchez can do. When you are at half the speed, press Left Analog-stick Down while still accelerating. When you are half way (or just slightly over) in the air (45 degree angle), hold Square while still holding the Left Analog-stick and accelerating. This may take a few attempts to get the correct height off the ground. You will end up with a perfect wheelie and not have to keep your balance by tapping back or letting off the gas.

Get a perfect condition Sanchez and get up to about twice the legal speed limit. Pull a wheelie and ride it until you almost fall off the bike. Let off the gas completely and do not stop holding Down. Within about ten minutes of practice you will be able to ride a manual on average of 13 to 30 seconds each . This works best at the Escobar International Airport runway.

Normally it is not that easy to pop a wheelie on a Angel or Freeway. Start riding and when you are at a straight enough road, hit the brakes and the hand brakes at the same time while holding Forward. Then just before you come to a complete stop, release everything and pull Back. Note: Some practice may be required.

Motorcycles: Stoppies

Choose a dirt bike or sport bike and build up a little speed. If you hit the regular and emergency brakes at the same time and stand up (Left Analog-stick Up), you can do a stoppie and earn some money. You can also get extra points for flipping around 180 degrees on the front wheel.
greywind and

 PlayStation2  Gor an easy stoppie, press R1 + Square + Up on any motorcycle-class vehicle. Note: You can do wheelie and stoppie drive by shootings.

 PlayStation2  To do a nose wheelie, get a bullet bike, go very fast, stand up, and hit both brake buttons (Square + R1).

 PlayStation2  Go as fast as you can, then hold R1 + Square + Up. Release R1 when you are quite high. and you can slide for more money. Note: Stoppies cannot be done if the "Flying car (Dodo)" code is enabled.

 PlayStation2  Get a Faggio (or the pizza boy scooter) and find a alley where there is little activity. Accelerate to almost top speed then release the gas and press Left Analog-stick Up + Square + R1. If desired, press R2 or L2 to view how far you are from the ground. You will flip over if you go too high. Do not hold the brakes, but release R1 + Square and press X to accelerate. It may be difficult at first. You will drive forward but with some practice you can do a stoppie for 31 seconds or longer.

 PlayStation2  To do a long stoppie, press R2 then Analog-stick Up. This will cause you to do a stoppie. To do a very long one, press R2 then Analog-stick Up and press X. You can do this for a long time.

 PlayStation2  To do a stoppie for a long time, hold Up, then hold R1 + Square. Release Square and hold X. Then, just keep your balance.

Stand up on a PCG 600 or Sanchez. As you ride, use your brakes and your motorcycle should be on the front wheel.

 PlayStation2  While riding a Faggio at a fairly fast speed, press Square + R1 + Up. You should go into a stoppie, and be able to ride it as long as you keep yourself from hitting things.

 PlayStation2  Get on a motorcycle (but not the Freeway or Angel). Once on, get some speed and hold Up to stand up. Keep gaining speed, and hold R1 + Square. It might take a few tries, but you will do a stoppie. If you have too much speed, you might flip over and wreck.

 PlayStation2  Gain some speed then press Square + R1 while pressing Forward on the Analog-stick or D-pad. This will make you slide on your front tire (stoppie). This trick will gain you between $20 and on average.

Get on a bike (preferably a PCJ 600 or Sanchez) and get up to speed (for example, down a hill). Hit the brakes while pressing forward (Analog-stick Up) to initiate a stoppie. This will earn $30 to $100 depending on the time and distance of the stoppie.

When driving around on a PCJ-600 you can pull off stoppies longer then five seconds. To do this, reach a high speed on the bike then do a stoppie. As you go down to land on two wheels, pull up on the Analog-stick to do a wheelie. Reach a high speed while doing or trying to do a wheelie and hit another stoppie. If you land it, the "Stoppie bonus" message will appear, with a time from 4 seconds to over 1 minute). You can do this for as long as desired.

Motorcycles: Backflips

 PlayStation2  Drive a Sanchez, or better yet, a PCJ 600 to the car showroom. Go down the street to the south. Turn around and drive fast down the sidewalk on your right. When you see the grass hill on the left, turn sharply into it. Do not use the brake, emergency brake, or let off the gas. When you hit it, you should be holding Down/Left. You will do insane stunts such as 540 Backflips. Make sure not to land backwards or you will fall off. Balance yourself with Up and Down for a soft landing.

Get a motorcycle and slowly drive up to a wall that is on a blacktop surface. Drive up so your front wheel is touching the wall and gun it. You will do a back flip and not fall off the bike. Sometimes you will even get money for the trick.

Motorcycles: Quick turns

 PlayStation2  To do a quick 180 turn on a motorcycle, while driving down the street press R1 + Square + Down. This will face you in the direction that you were coming from. Note: Do not do this at fast speeds or you will crash your bike.

 PlayStation2  While going at a fairly fast speed on a PCJ 600, Freeway, or Angel, hold R1 + Left analog-stick to make a quick 180 degree turn. Be careful -- if you are going too fast, you will fall off.

Motorcycles: Go faster

 PlayStation2  You can make any bike go faster. A very long straight section of road is required, as it is very difficult to steer while going this fast. While driving, press the Left Analog-stick slightly Up. Tommy will lean forward and you should hear the engine rev faster, along with traffic and scenery passing by in a blur.

Motorcycles: Abilities

You can do wheelies and stoppies easier on different motorcycles. For instance, the PCJ600 can pull wheelies better than any other bike. The Faggio is good for Stoppies.

Motorcycles: Easy passengers

You can get a passenger on the back of your motorcycle-class vehicles easily. Find one with two people on it. Knock both people off, and make sure the passenger gets to the motorcycle before the driver does. Try punching the driver a few times. Do not shoot or the passenger will run away. Once the passenger gets on, just hop on and ride away.

 PlayStation2  Knock the driver off of the motorcycle, but do not kill him. As he begins to get back on the bike, press Triangle to hop on. You will both be on the bike and you can now ride around with a passenger.

To get a passenger with you on any type of motorcycle, look for one with two people on it. Carefully shoot the driver of the motorcycle. Quickly get on the motorcycle and drive away. If you completely stop at any time, the passenger will get off the motorcycle.

Motorcycles: Steal with leap kick

Approaching the front of the bike when stealing it. Tommy will leap kick the person off and land right on the bike. He will also do the same kind of leap onto it, without the kick when doing this to an unattended bike.

Motorcycles: Easy stealing

 PlayStation2  This trick requires a gun that can be aimed. When you get close enough to a motorcycle or dirtbike, stop it with a car or another vehicle then press Triangle to get on. Or, you can aim one of your guns at the bike and kill the driver.

Motorcycles: Bailing

 PlayStation2  When in a motorcycle-class vehicle, you can bail while jumping off a ramp by pressing Triangle. This is helpful if you are driving a damaged motorcycle and somehow it sets on fire in the air. This can also used to bail from any out of control vehicle before it lands in water or crashes. This is useful if you know you cannot stop in time. Note: You may take damage from the bail.

If you are on a motorcycle-class vehicle with a passenger, you will not be able to bail while moving.

Motorcycles: Ride inside buildings

 PlayStation2  Find a building that has enough space in the door for a motorcycle to fit into. Almost all buildings will qualify. Gather a lot of speed, aiming at the door, and press Triangle to jump off the motorcycle when you are almost directly in front of it. If done correctly, the motorcycle will go into the building. Go inside the building to get to the motorcycle.

Motorcycles: Radio station changes after crash

If you are changing the radio station when you fall off, then get back on the motorcycle, the game will change the channel back to what you were listening to earlier.


 PlayStation2  Stop completely, then press Square + X at the same time and turn left or right to do a donut in car or motorcycle.

Use the following trick to do easy donuts with any bike (Freeway or Angel recommended). Find a bike and knock off the rider. Then, use a sniper rifle and shoot out the back tire. If you have a Freeway or an Angel, you can only shoot the back tire. After you have flattened the tire, ride it then make a sharp turn to your left or right. You will do a big donut and might bail.

Burn outs

 PlayStation2  Hold Square + X in any vehicle, then release Square.

 PlayStation2  Get a rear wheel drive car or a motorcycle. This will not work with front wheel drive cars such as the Blista Compact. Hold R1 then hold Square + X, while still holding R1. You will hear the engine rev. Release R1 and the tires will start smoking.

Go for a tour

 PlayStation2  Get any civilian vehicle (no cop cars or taxis). Knock the passenger side door off the car using a club-class weapon or by scraping it along a wall. Drive around until you find a carjacker (usually white men in brown leather jackets). Make sure the carjacker approaches the car from the passenger side. When he starts to get in, drive away. The carjacker will have control of the car, but you will still be riding along. Sit back and enjoy your free tour of vice City. You will not be able to shoot or control the car in any way. You can look around by using L2 and R2. To end your tour, hold Triangle. If the carjacker does something to upset the police, they will bust you as if you were driving. Also, if the car blows up, you will not die (unless you have low health to begin with) and you will be trapped inside the car. You will need to enable the "Suicide" code or reload a saved game to continue.

Find any car that has a cargo bed (for example, trucks) and stop it in front of you. Jump on the hood of the car then run to the back of the car. Pull out a weapon and crouch down in it. Shoot the back of the driver's compartment without hitting the civilian and the car should speed off. The car should not stop speeding until you get out of the back. Note: Not all cars will speed off when you shoot them.

Rig a car with a bomb

Go to the south of Little Havana. In this area are a series of garages, in the place where you fought the Zebra cab in the Kaufman Cabs asset mission. Go by the water and look at the garages. One of them will be open and have a picture of a bomb painted like an 8-Ball. Drive your car inside and let the garage close. Wait a few seconds and it will open. A message will appear, stating that you can just use the detonator to blow up the car. Get out of the car and the detonator will be selected as your weapon.

This can also be used to get revenge on car thieves. Get a nice car that a thief on the street would try to steal. Then, put a bomb in it and press Circle to arm the bomb. Find a thief on the street, and make sure he walks towards the car to steal it. Get out of the car, shut the car door, then quickly run to a safe place and watch the car explode with the thief inside.

Load a car on top of another

You need to have a moving Rancher in front of you to do this trick. You also need an Infernus. Drive behind a Rancher at the same speed. Using the front of the Infernus like a wedge, it is easy to lift the Rancher onto the hood. Once its back wheels are on the hood, hammer on the accelerator to full throttle. This will lift the Rancher straight up onto your roof. If you go fast enough, the car will go over you. This is useful if you are on a mission and the cops are on your tail, or you are running out of time where there is a lot of traffic.

Blow out tires

You can shoot the tires of any vehicle to blow them out.

Fix flat tires

When you have a flat, enable the "Health" code to fill up the tire again. Note: This will not work when on a motorcycle.

Better braking and turns

 PlayStation2  Hold R1 for better turns and braking.

Easier street races

  • There are two things that are extremely helpful when street racing. First, you do not have to park in the pink area. Hitting a competitor will start the race automatically. To get an advantage, get some speed in the direction of the first checkpoint, then just barely nick the lead car as you fly by. They will all be left in your dust, and probably will not catch up. Secondly, especially for the final race, you may want to block them off with a giant vehicle, like a Coach or Packer. When coupled with the first trick, you just may win.
  • The easiest way to win a street race is to enable the "Destroy all cars" code while in the race. Make sure to get of your car before performing the code, then get another car and drive through all the checkpoints. Another way is to shoot the cars at the very start of the race.
  • When you do the street races for Sunshine Autos, get the rocket launcher in the pool behind the Hooker Inn Hotel and get to the starting grid. Do not enter the pink circle that starts the race. Instead, go in front of the cars and shoot between the front two cars with the rocket launcher. They will explode. The back car will get away. Shoot it before it passes you, then get in your car and race by yourself. You will win every time.
  • When doing the street races for Sunshine Autos, go behind the big orange building at the yellow striped intersection on the way to the airport and get the rocket launcher. Go to the starting point and line your car up just behind the pink circle. Take out the car in the upper-right (number two) position. Hopefully the blast will take out the other two cars. Either way, you will make the odds a lot better. Alternately, if you do not feel like shedding blood, you can just clip the upper right car going at top speed to get the race started.
  • Start the race, run away from any cars, and enable the "Destroy all cars" code. Then, complete the race at your leisure. Note: This only works in races where the other people do not have to stay alive.
    Mike Van Zandbergen.
  • When doing the Sunshine Auto races, go to the start of each race. Instead of stopping in the circle, ram the back of the car in front of your start circle. This will allow you to be moving at the start. For a more interesting way of winning the races, get close to the start grid. Get out of your car, get off the road, and enable the "Rhino tank" code. Get in the tank, and pull it into the start circle. When the race begins, shoot the rival cars with the tank cannon. Shoot about three times and they will all explode. The pink arrows will still be above them. Then get out, get back in your car, and drive through the checkpoints at your leisure. You must allow the race to be counted down to the start for this to work.
  • When doing the races for Sunshine Autos, instead of going directly to the marker, turn your car around and back up into the first and second place cars. Doing this triggers the race and allows you to have an earlier start in the lead.
  • Enable the "Dodo car (flying)" code before you begin the race. When the race starts, your opponents will begin flying and lose control. Note: You should drive only slightly faster than the pedestrian cars.
  • Go to Sunshine Autos and enter the races by the garage. Get the street bike then enable the "Dodo car (flying)" code. Motorcycles will not be effected by the code. Your opponents will lift off the ground when they are driving fast, and you will not.
  • Park well away from the other three cars and throw a grenade in the middle of them. As soon as you have thrown the grenade, get in your car because the race will begin when it explodes. If done correctly, it will be possible to blow up two, or even all three cars. Note: It is best to start from behind the other cars when doing this. The cars will not explode immediately, but will speed away while on fire. If you are in front of them, they might explode and cause you damage.
  • Steal a fast car (Cheetah recommended; it is fast and handles well) and enter any of the street races. Stop your car a short distance behind the other three competitors (do not go into the pink marker). Throw a grenade into the middle of the three cars and immediately climb into your car. When the grenade detonates, the race will start but. If done correctly, one or more of the cars will explode. Note: It is always best to stop behind the waiting cars. If you park in front the cars will be set on fire, speed towards you, and may destroy your car when they explode. This trick can also be done with the rocket launcher.
  • After geting all the cars for the Sunshine Autos showroom and you start racing, first choose race 6. Then, get a Sabre Turbo and go out to the starting line. When you start, throughout the race do not go too fast or slow; just drive normally. Try not to cut the first corner off, or you will flip and your car will usually explode. Let the other cars go ahead of you; they are going so fast that they will crash many times and you can eventually just pass them. On the long straight areas are where you can pick up speed to full power. You should now be in first place after you get through downtown. Finish the race and you will get $40,000. Note: Do not use the Deluxo. It may be the fastest car but it has no handling. The Sabre Turbo is best for all races because it is fast and has handling.
  • Buy Sunshine Autos and complete all four lists. Once you do this, start a race from downstairs and take the Hotring Racer. You will be able to pass the Infernus, Cheetah, and Banshee by just driving where they cannot ram the side of your car.

Keep black or pink cars

Enable the "Black traffic" or "Pink traffic" code. Park any car that you want to remain in that color and save the game. When you reload, you will have that color car. This does not seem to work on certain mission cars, such as the taxis. If you already have a car in your garage and wish to make it black, enable the code, drive into a Pay 'N' Spray and do the same as the above.

Various car appearance determination

Cars that appear are in the same car class as the car that you are driving. For example, if you drive a sports car, expect to see sports cars everywhere.

Better off-road capabilities

Enable the Change wheel size code a few times and get a car (Phoenix, Banshee, etc.). The wheels will appear to be bigger and you will have better off-road capabilities and you can run over cars better then usual. Your car will raise off the ground and Tommy will have to do a small jump to get in.

Meat cargo

Go to Vice Port. There will be a red van driving around, with R, S, and L Bols on the side. Take it and reverse into something so the back door falls off. Look inside to see dead meat (cows) hanging from the roof.

Pay N' Spray emergency vehicle

As long as the lights and siren is off you can take an unmarked emergency vehicle (non-military) to the Pay N' Spray for a full repair. They will charge the same amount as a regular car but does not change the color. Note: This was done with the F.B.I. SUV.
