Alternate pause screen
Notice the car in the pause menu background. Keep pausing
the game and eventually a computer will be in the background.
Easy "infinite" run
PlayStation2 To continue to run at a fast pace without fatigue,
just tap X instead of holding it down. This helps when
trying to give your character "exercise" so that he
can run for longer periods of time as well.
To get so your character never stops running at full speed, complete
all twelve paramedic missions. These missions must be done consecutively
with the same vehicle for that effect.
To easily complete the twelve paramedic missions, go to Staunton
Island (as its a less complicated area than Shoreside Vale, and
has less gangs that shoot cars than in Portland). At the hospital,
enable the "Tank" code about a dozen times and park
them around the car park so that they are out of the way. The
PlayStation2's memory is used up by the tanks, and there are will
be no cars to collide with on the streets. Getting the twelve
missions with the same ambulance should not be a problem. After
this has been completed, enable the "Destroy all cars"
code to return the game to normal.
Easy insane stunts
PlayStation2 Find a blue glitch (one that sends you twirling before
you reappear in a random location in that city). Enable the "Better
driving skills" code. Drive a very fast car and jump into
it by pressing R3. Try do as many flips and twists as possible.
You will usually get a good stunt, such as a double perfect insane
stunt and a little note after that, stating "and what a great
landing". This seems to work well with the stretch limo.
PlayStation2 To turn better, press [Aim] instead of Square.
PlayStation2 Press Triangle for easier turns when going fast. This also
works well when getting away from the cops.
PlayStation2 Drive very fast in an open space with no cars. Keep
going until you get to maximum speed then quickly hold Triangle
and turn your car 360 degrees. Release Triangle and if
done correctly, you should have done a peelout. Note: You can
use this method to get away from cops.
PlayStation2 Enable the "Better driving skills" code and go to any ramp. Immediately before you go off, tap L3 to perform a diagonal backflip. This works about 25% of the time.
Jump during chase
Go to any ramp while chased by the police. The best
ramp for this trick is the one at the end of Cedar Grove which
lets you jump over the river. Jump while the police are close
to you. While you are flying through the air, you will see the
police right behind you.
Hitch a ride
If you are close to a cop and do not want to steal
a car, but you also do not want to walk, jump on top of a car
and let them take you away.
To make your driver go faster, shoot the car that you are on top
of. Note: If you shoot the car you will most likely fall off the
car during a sharp turn.
To get a "speed boost" get a flamethrower and light
the car on fire before you jump on.
Ride on top of cars
When a car stops for a traffic light, jump on top of
it to get a little ride.
Rear end cars out of your way
When the Shoreside Vale bridge is lifted, rear end
the car in the very front of the line and they will take a dive.
Cause an accident
Equip the sniper rifle and go to the nearest traffic
signal. Aim and fire at the traffic light. If done correctly,
this should cause an accident of two cars or more.
PlayStation2 Get the Uzi and enter any car. Press R2 + Circle or L2 + Circle and your character will shoot the Uzi out either side of the car.
PlayStation2 Get in any car and keep pressing Select until you cannot see anything but the road and nothing of your car. Then, enable the "All weapons" code or get a Uzi. Next, hold L2 or R2 to see your man putting his gun out the window from inside the car. This makes drive by shootings more fun, but you cannot see anything ahead of you while driving.
Stop a vehicle but do not jack it. Hop on top or back of it and get your favorite weapon out. Shoot the vehicle with the M-16 once and wait for it to speed up. Then, just start shooting away at the people.
and While riding on a vehicle, you have to move around on the turns or you will fall off. If you want to get on some taller vehicles (such as a bus, Cartel Cruiser, or a flatbed), park a shorter car in front and jump on. Also enable the "Flying car" code to get very high.
Jump onto any midsize car (not a big truck). You can stand on the hood of the car. From here, you can choose any gun and start shooting people while the car is still moving. This allows quick kills without walking, and the cops cannot get you.
Switch the control settings to "Standard" and set the target button to whatever is preferred (such as Right Mouse Button). Take out your shotgun and go to a location with mad people. Keep clicking target and shoot, making sure that you hit target first. Repeat this as fast as possible and you will not have to pump the shotgun, making it semi-automatic. You can kill about three people per second. Note: This only works under the standard control settings.
Race another vehicle
Get an Uzi and a car that you want to race in. Go up
to a vehicle that is stopped at a stop light. Aim your Uzi in
the direction that the vehicle is on and quickly shoot it. The
driver will get scared and will drive at top speed. Take off and
race him or her. This works best on a two lane street.
When you have a shotgun with a ot of ammunition (over
ten) and are surround by at least three or more people, you can
turn the shotgun into a sort of automatic weapon. Face the group
of people you want to kill. Hold the trigger, then keep pressing
[Aim]. If timed and executed correctly, this will cause Tommy to continue
to shoot without pumping the gun. This is also a good way to finish
any rampage in which the shotgun is equipped.
Wanted level limits
- Four stars on Portland.
- Five stars on Staunton Island.
- Six stars on Shoreside Vale.
Wanted level to six stars
Get an AK 47, grenades, molotov cocktails, sniper rifle
and grenade launcher. Stand on a rooftop where police will find
it difficult to reach you, such as the Staunton Island parking
structure or the Portland dock warehouse. Start shooting people
to get at least one to two stars. At two stars, the police will
really start going after you. Use your grenade launcher or grenades
and begin firing or throwing them at police cars. Continue doing
this to get to at least five stars. The easiest way to get six
stars is to shoot the helicopters or the FBI cars with your grenade
launcher or grenades. You will soon see Rhino tanks and Barracks
OL trucks headed in your direction.
Get about two or three stars to the point where the police are
chasing you. Grab a car and drive directly in front of Ammu-Nation
in Staunton Island. Make sure the Uzis are in stock and get lots
of ammunition for them. Enable the "More money" or "All
guns" code if needed. Once you have a lot of Uzi ammunition,
go outsiden but make sure you health and armor is full. Hold [Aim]
and even if you cannot see who you are shooting at, fire way.
If done correctly, there will be a barricade of police cars there.
After shooting all your ammunition or when at low health, go back
in Ammu-Nation and fill up again. If you see that any of the cars
have caught on fire, go back inside -- once one explodes it cause
a chain reaction. Repeat this to get lots of money and kills.
Remove wanted level
When you have a wanted level and police are after you,
go to your hideout in either Portland, Staunton Island, or Shoreside
Vale. Save the game. As soon as your done saving, load the game
and your wanted level will be gone.
Saving at unlocked locations
If you cheat and go to Staunton Island or Shoreside Vale earlier than you are supposed to, you can save the game without having any missions there. Follow your radar. The icon that looks
like a house is your hideout in that area, which allows you to save. Although you can save your game there, if you die you will return to Portland. If you wish to return to where you were, just load the game again.
Easy Vigilante missions
When you get close enough to the criminal's car, pause
game play. When the game is resumed, the criminal will stop his
car and get out. Then, just run him over or do a drive by shooting.
PlayStation2 Go to any island to do the vigilante mission. Instead of stealing
a cop car, fed car, etc., enable the "Tank" code, press
R3, then get out of the tank. Then, enable the "Destroy
all cars" code, enable the "Tank" code again, then
get out and enable the "Destroy all cars" code again.
Repeat this twenty times on each island to get a total of six
police bribes. Note: When enabling the "Destroy all cars"
code, run away from the Rhino or surrounding cars -- upon entering
the code you may get back in the vehicle.
Start the vigilante mission and put the cop car in your garage.
Enable the "Destroy all cars" cheat. That will destroy
the criminal and your car. However, since your car is in the garage
it will regenerate, allowing you to repeat the trick.
PlayStation2 When in the police vehicle you are using to do the mission, drive
until the target is quite close to you. Press Start to
enter the menu, then resume the game. The target should get out
the car and run away. Run him over to annihilate the target.
Easy fire truck missions
PC }Get inside the fire truck, press [Caps Lock] then press [F1]. Press [F1] again, and it will complete the mission. Do this repeatedly to pass the missions. Press [F1] when a new location appears.
Easy paramedic missions
To have the easiest paramedic missions, do them all on Portland Island, before you do any missions in the game. By doing this, there will be no enemy gangs out to get you and destroy
When you are going to do the Paramedic missions, first take out the ambulance's doors so that patients can enter faster.
Easy police missions
A quick way to get all the police bribes for your hideout is to first steal a police car (or any other law enforcement car). Take it to your hideout, then enter "Vigilante". Put
the car in your garage and get out. Wait until the door closes, then enable the "Destroy all cars" code. This will kill the criminal. Enter back into the police car, which will be fine since it was in the garage. Repeat this as many times as needed. Since you get money for each criminal you kill, you may also want to do this when low on cash. This method can also be used with any other mission that requires you to destroy a car.
Taxi missions in other cars
PC Get into a taxi and hold [Caps Lock]. Get out while still holding the key and walk to another car. Release [Caps Lock] when in the car. You can now do taxi missions in that new car.
You can also do this trick in the Paramedic, Fire, and Vigilante missions. You could also be a limo driver if you get in the Stretch during a taxi mission.
Fast taxi customer
PC After car jacking any taxi, press [Caps Lock] to become a cab driver. At this point the person driving the cab that was just jacked will become a pedestrian looking to catch
a cab. This will make your first passenger the old taxi driver.
Easy boat missions
When taking a boat mission that requires you to destroy
another boat, do not try and destroy it yourself. Just enable
the "Destroy all cars" code and the mission completed
message will appear.
There are two boat missions in which you must destroy an enemy
boat. There is an M-16 that you can find in the second island,
close to Donald Love's building in an area with three parked cars.
On the outside are some stairs. Go up the stairs, turn left, and
jump up to the higher ground. Next, jump over the gap over the
low wall, where you can find a M-16 and body armor. On the first
boat mission where you must go after a speed boat, do not get
in the police boat (it is slow). Instead, get in the speed boat
and go after the other boat. When you get close, release the steering
so the boat is still moving and you can move around on foot. Use
your M-16 and blow up the other boat very fast. If you run out
of ammunition, use other weapons. However, do not use the shotgun
as you may also blow up your own boat. On the other boat mission,
do the same thing. However, this is easier because the enemy boat
is bigger and slower.
Easy rampage missions
Have one star in your wanted level, then have a policeman
follow you when you pick up the icon. When the rampage starts,
the policeman will still follow you, but because he is there the
gangs will not shoot at you, leaving you to freely pop them off
without any trouble. However, you will get punched in the back
of the head by a policeman at random.
Find a rampage, then find a tank. When the rampage, begins get
into the tank and use it instead of the selected weapon.
Many of the missions require you to blow up or destroy
cars, items, etc. Use the Tank to make these types of missions
easier. During some of the missions, cops chasing you can be the
difference between completing the mission and failing. To eliminate
this difficulty, enabled the "No wanted level" code
while they are chasing you and they will stop.
Skip Kenji missions
To skip the majority of the missions for Kenji, do
the first mission for him then work for Ray. After enough missions
for him, you will be able to work for Donald Love. One of Donald's
missions involves killing Kenji. Do it and you will have skipped
three very hard missions.
Stealing police cars
PlayStation2 To easily steal police cars, press Triangle
at the drivers side door. Then, as the policeman gets out, go
to the passenger side and hop in.
Go to the passenger door and try to open it. The cop will get
out and try to arrest you. Once he is out and closes his door,
get in the passenger side and drive off. Note: You will have one
star on you.
Steal bus with someone inside
PlayStation2 Find a bus driving around, steal it, hold X.
You should start driving with the driver still in it. Switch to
first person view mode and press R2 to see the driver.
Make sure you have the Uzi and some ammunition (drive-by
purposes). Then, get a police car by whatever means. You can do
this with a normal car, but a police car is recommended. Once
you have a car, pull up next to another car, preferably a large
one such as, a bus, diesel, etc. Make sure that this is a vehicle
that you can keep up with, and that it handles badly at high speeds.
Shoot the vehicle to get it running from you. Chase after it and
use the siren to watch chaos ensue. Even though the CPU-driven
car is going as fast as it can, it will still try to pull over.
Use the siren for about a second, then turn it off for about three
seconds and repeat. If done correctly, it will plow into people,
cars, walls, and even you if you get in its way. Also, if it catches
fire and explodes, watch out. Some of the other vehicles will
try to run you down and give chase if the car explodes near them.
Not all the cars act in this way, but you can trigger these actions
if you are persistent.
Beat up at least six people in the same area so they
die in a pile. This will attract an ambulance and paramedics.
When the paramedics exit the ambulance, jack it and run over them
and any other pedestrians around the area. Note: You will get
a wanted level of 1 or possibly 2 if a cop sees you.
Killing Ammunation store clerks
Walk into any of the Ammunation stores. Make sure you
have weapons. Draw a grenade, throw it towards the clerk, then
run to the farthest corner of the store. You will hear the grenade
explode. Walk over to the service desk and look at the clerk.
He will be dead. This can also be done with other weapons, such
as the sniper rifle.
Enter Army Surplus store early
Go to the Army Surplus store. Go to the building on
the right side. There is a little passage with a red crate blocking
your way in. Get a car, and park it by the little concrete wall.
Jump on top of the car, then jump on top of the little wall. Then,
walk on top of it until you get inside. There is a Barracks OL
Get on top of subway
PlayStation2 Go to the subway in any town. Go to the edge of the
platform where it slopes down. Take a step forward and fall right
between the actual subway rail and the edge of the platform (the
yellow part). Wait for the train and when it arrives, press Triangle
to get in. Before the subway leaves, press Triangle again
to get back out. If done correctly, you should now be on top of
the subway. Note: The graphics will glitch. If you fall back off
the edge, you will land back on the platform unless you go further
down the tracks.
Give drivers the finger
While on foot, walk out in front of a car and you will
eventually give that person the middle finger.
l, o, ymp hri, ret wmt rclomndaf
Press [Target] when on foot to show your middle finger.
Shoot out lights
You can shoot out streetlights and traffic lights using
the rocket launcher.
When you are on an adrenaline pill (when the small
pill icon appears), get into a fist fight or have a shoot out
with someone. The fight will have a Matrix-type effect.
Bust up cars
After taking the adrenaline pill, running into any
car will cause it to break apart, and eventually flip over if
you push hard enough.
Make sure no one is in the car and take an adrenaline
pill. When you are using the pills, run towards the car. The car
will lift from the ground.
Funny sound effects
Enable the "Slow game play" code several
times, then enable the "All weapons" code. Use the flame
thrower or molotov cocktails to burn someone to hear them scream
Dive out of the way
When a police car or other law enforcement vehicle
is speeding toward you, press Left or Right + Square.
Your character will sometimes dive out of the way.
Maria and Asuka double-teaming Fido
When taking Maria and Asuka to the second island on
the boat, get off the wheel and attack one of them to have them
attack you. You will probably die as Maria has a Uzi and Asuka
acts like she is a kickboxing champ.
Regain health with prostitute
Car jack any vehicle and drive up to a prostitute walking
the streets. Stop and let her approach the car, after a few seconds
of talking, she will get in. Drive to a remote area where there
are not any cops around (a good place is in your hideout). Stop
the car, but do not get out. After about two seconds, the car
will start rocking back and forth. You will recover approximately
40 to 50 points of health. When it is over, she will exit the
car and walk away, but not before she charges you a fee. At this
point you can beat her up and take back the money you just paid
her. Note: The prostitute will fight back when you try to take
your money back. If for any reason you both have to exit the car
before it starts rocking, you will still be charged a fee (beat
her up to take it back). You cannot do this with the same prostitute
twice in one night -- you can however, pick up another prostitute
and recover more health. Even though the maximum amount of health
points is 100 when you start the game, it increases to 125 after
the encounter and remains that way.
, , , and others.
When you pick up a prostitute and as soon as the car stops shaking,
before the girl gets out, step on the gas slightly. She will not
get out because the car is moving. If you stop right after, the
car will start rocking again. This is a good way to save time
when you are trying to get health back.
While around prostitutes, walk or drive in the road and stop to
stop traffic. Make sure it is around a prostitute. While they
are honking, a prostitute will walk up to an AI car, talk, and
It is possible to pick up to three prostitutes at once: First,
pick up one prostitute and ride around until you see another one.
Get out, then get back in. Both hookers might get in. You can
do this with up to three hookers if you have a big enough car.
Trap prostitute in garage
Pick up a prostitute using a nice car (such the Banshee). And drive her back to your home and park the car in the garage. Get out of the car. She will get out your door as well. Walk out
of the garage. If done correctly, the garage door will close and she will be trapped inside. Save the game and she will still be there. You can also do this with the taxi to trap passengers.
Extinguish yourself when on fire
If you are on fire and you are about to die, get into a car and the flame will go out. It is better to get into a parked car because it is faster. If your car is on fire and you are near a garage (the save point or the Pay 'N' Spray), drive into the garage and close the door. When the door is opened, the flames will be out.
Around the airport runway is a ramp that goes to the
water. Once there, you will find a police boat or a speeder on
the other side of the water. You can also drive the boat up to
the dam and the other side of Staunton Island.
Get into the big airplanes
Get a small car that has the top down. Go to one of
the planes and drive under it. Get out of the car and you will
have a view of the inside of the plane. Note: Once you get out
of your car you cannot get back in.
Shoot down airplanes
Enable the "Gore" code, then arm yourself
with a rocket launcher. Drive (or walk) to a location in the path
of the small airplane flying around the city. Portland is best
location for a clear shot. When the plane is in range (basically
directly on top of you), shoot a rocket at it. If you hit it,
the plane will explode, the screen will flash and shake, and your
wanted level will rise to four stars.
R/C Car big air
Go to one of the Toyz vans to drive the R/C Car. Enable the "Pedestrians have weapons" and "Pedestrians riot" codes. Drive the car over one of the dead bodies and
about 75% of the time you will be shot spinning, straight up in the air. You can get extremely high above some buildings.
PC Find lots of vehicles together during game play. Get far away from them then enter bang repeatedly as a code (more than the regular three times). When game play is resumed,
anything with a motor will fly.
Walk on water
Climb into any boat, then enable the "Invisible
cars" code. It will appear as if you are walking on water.
Enable the "Change outfit" code and become
a law officer. Punch someone or steal a car to get a star.
Cops shot in one star
Jump on a car when a cop is chasing you on foot. The
cop will shoot you.
Smash cars with bare hands
PlayStation2 When hopped up on pills, your character can smash up
cars with his bare hands. Approach the side of a car and run towards
it while holding X. The car's windows will break and the
body will dent. If the vehicle has a high center of gravity (such
as a truck or an ambulance), you can tip it over.
Hit people with your gun
Run up to a pedestrian, pull out a shotgun, and fire.
If you were close enough, you will hit them into the air and shoot
Hold up people
Walk in front of someone and hold [Aim] with a
gun in your hand. They will surrender, put their hands up, then
run. This usually works best with a normal handgun. Note: This
does not work with everyone in Liberty City.
Pile of people
Enable the "Faster game play" code twice,
then enable the "All weapons" code and get a bat. Go
to any sidewalk and start batting a person to death. More people
will walk up to you. Just bat them as well. You will soon have
a pile of people on the sidewalk.
Stop enemy gangs from shooting you
Enable the "Change costume" code until you
get a man who wears a rain hat (wide brim flat top), green full
length trenchcoat, and has grayish black hair. Cartel members
and other games will not shoot you or your car. Enemies will still
shoot you if you jack their car. You can still get in to trouble
with the law. This effect may end after you die.
The following missions will make the corresponding
gang try to kill you.
- Triads: The Pick Up
- Diablos: Uzi Rider
- Mafia: Sayonara Salvatore
- Cartel: They already want you dead.
Ram and shoot the red Landstalkers on the second island. A group of them will start to attack you, as if they are another type of gang. This seems to work best around the construction
Free Pay 'N Spray
The first time you go into the Pay 'N Spray shops it
will cost $1000. Keep spraying the car until you notice that it
Just before entering the Pay N' Spray, enable the "Health"
code. After the code is confirmed, drive into the Pay 'N Spray
for a free repair.
You can get a free paint job if you enter a Pay N' Spray with
a Mr. Whoopie ice cream truck.
The main character's running distance depends on how
much you exercise him. The more he runs, the farther he will be
able to go without stopping.
PlayStation2 Steal ether a police, ambulance, or fire truck (easier
to steal). Turn on the sirens and all cars on the road will pull
over and get out of your way. This will not bring your wanted
level up. Try staying in the center of the road -- if you go to
the side of the intersection, cars will either hit you or cause
a road block. Note: If it does not work the first time, keep pressing
If enter a car and the alarm goes on, just get out
of the car and wait for it to stop. After the car alarm stops,
simply get back in the vehicle and you can drive away free of
noise and suspicion from the cops.
To avoid getting caught by the police while sniping, enable the "All weapons" code as many times as desired. Then, get on top of the police HQ and snipe from there. If a badge appears, enable the "Lower wanted level" code.
Avoid police chases
After stealing police cars, you are relentlessly pursued
by the police until you are captured or injured. In order to get
around this, steal the police car (try smashing them until they
get out to arrest you, and then jump in their car). Take the stolen
police car to your garage (the condition does not matter), and
save the game. When you return with the stolen police car later
(from your garage), it will be viewed as a normal car by the police,
but will still be able to do the Vigilante mission.
First, find badges. The best places to look are in the alleys
and parking lots. If being chased in a car, and you are not about
to explode, just keep running, and try to not kill anyone. Sometimes,
if you drive around enough in harsh conditions, the cops will
just stop chasing you. This only happens if you have one or two
stars though. If you have around four or more stars, quickly find
some badges. The cops are reckless around then, and will do anything
to get you busted, or most likely killed, even if it means accidentally
killing a few witnesses.
Get back to your hideout, save then game, then reload. The cops
will be gone. This works no matter how high your wanted level
Go into the Ammunation store while the cops are after you. The
cops will not enter the store, and will eventually give up and
When you need to escape from the cops, enter the subway. The cops
will never enter it and you will be safe, even with six stars
in your wanted level.
Use the "Costume change" code and use any police uniform
(FBI, SWAT, etc.), and no cop will attack if you kill a person.
An easier way to get rid of the cops is to hop on a train. This
works for any amount on your wanted meter.
Be a passenger
PlayStation2 When you are near a police car, press Triangle and try to get in. As the cop gets out to arrest you, get in through the other door and then enable the "No wanted level" code. If done quickly enough, the cop will stop chasing you and get in the drivers seat while you are still in the passenger seat.
Drive into car crusher
PC Get a car, and enable the cornerslikemad code. Drive towards the crusher from the sidewalk to the east, and use the horn to jump just at the edge. You can land in the crusher,
which will crush you.
Increase accuracy rating
Kill someone with the machine gun, then stand over
him/her and keep shooting them.
Increase criminal rating
Enable the "Weapon", "Health",
and "Armor" codes. Go to the police station entrance
in Staunton Island. Enable the "Increase wanted level"
code until you have five stars. Blow up every car that approaches
(rocket launcher recommended). Then, enable the "Decrease
wanted level" code and go back to your hideout. Each time
this is done, your criminal rating will increase by 50 points.
- Wanted level 1 (One star): One cop or one cop car will chase you at a time. One cop gets out of the car. The cops will not shoot
you unless you are on top of a vehicle, but will use their fists.
- Wanted level 2 (Two stars): More cops will chase you at a time. Two cops get out of one car. The cops will shoot at you with a
pistol. They will chase you more often.
- Wanted level 3 (Three stars): Even more cops and one helicopter will chase you at a time. Two cops will get out of one car. The
cops will shoot at you with a pistol. The cops will set up roadblocks with normal cop cars. They will chase you even more often and ram you more often if you are driving.
- Wanted level 4 (Four stars): A lot of cops and one helicopter will chase you at a time. Two cops will get out of one car. The
cops will shoot at you with a pistol. Sometimes the S.W.A.T. team will chase you in Enforcers. Four S.W.A.T. team men will get out of an Enforcer. They will shoot you with a Uzi. The cops (not the S.W.A.T team) will setup roadblocks with Enforcers. They will chase you often and will try to ram you or sometimes try to run you over (if you are on foot).
- Wanted level 5 (Five stars): The FBI and two helicopters will chase you at a time. The FBI will chase you in FBI cars. Four
FBI agents will get out of one FBI car. They will shoot at you with AK-47s. The FBI will setup roadblocks with dark gray FBI cars. They will chase you often, do a lot of ramming, and will try to run you over. The helicopters will shoot at you more often. You have to complete the last Portland mission and be able to go to Staunton Island by normal means (without cheating) to get a wanted level to this level.
- Wanted level 6 (Six stars): This is the most dangerous wanted level. The Military and two helicopters will chase you at a time.
The Military will chase you in Military vehicles. They are not as fast as FBI cars, but a lot more powerful. There is also an occasional tank. Two soldiers will get out of a Military vehicle at a time. They will shoot at you M-16s. The Military will setup roadblocks with Military vehicles. Unlike Grand Theft Auto 2, they will not setup tank roadblocks. They will chase you often, do a lot of ramming, and will try to run you over. The helicopters will shoot at you more often. You have to be able to get to Shoreside Vale by normal means (without cheating) to get a wanted level to this level.
PlayStation2 Enable the "Different costume" code until you change to the old Asian lady with gray hair wearing a light pink sweater and holding grocery bags. She is the one usually calling you a "douche bag", etc. Stand perfectly still and press Circle to execute a roundhouse kick. Beware, as this old lady is weak -- one hit and she falls down. It is very easy to get busted by the cops.
Wear prison costume
PlayStation2 Remove your memory card, then turn on the PlayStation2. You will start a new game. When you begin, insert your memory card and load the game that you have been playing. When you start, you should have the prison suit. It will lasts until you die, get arrested, or turn off the game.
Start a new game, skip the opening sequence and when "Give Me Liberty" appears, pause game play and load a different saved game file. When done loading, you will be at your garage
with the convict uniform from the start of the game.
Radio station rewind
PlayStation2 When you want to hear a radio station from the very start of the track, get in a car and select the station of your choice. Wait for the game to switch to that station. Then, pause game play and go to the audio options screen. Before the game switches from the pause menu to the game play screen, press X. When the game resumes the radio station you selected will jump to the start of the track, and you can hear it from the beginning.
