Unlimited Flamethrowers

Put out twenty fires on each of the three islands (about sixty total) to get unlimited Flamethrowers at your hideout. Note This does not have to be done all at once.

Unlimited Health icons

Save fifty people on paramedic missions to get unlimited health icons at your hideout. Note This does not have to be done at once.

Easy health

Hijack an ambulance to get 20 health.

Unlimited Adrenaline Pills

Save fifty people on paramedic missions to get unlimited Adrenaline Pills at your hideout. Note This does not have to be done at once.

Police bribes

Complete about twenty vigilante missions in each district to obtain a total of six cop bribes at your hideout.

Get seven kills in a row in vigilante mode to unlock a police bribe that is available at your hideout.
, , and

In the Vigilante missions, eliminate eight criminal threats to get one police bribe. The police bribe is the small star that you use to get rid of the police. If you eliminate eighteen criminal threats, you will get one more police bribe.

Get into any police vehicle and enter vigilante mode. After killing enough criminals (about ten to fifteen), your beeper will tell you that you have a police bribe in your hideout. Note: This works best if you use the police truck behind the police station on Staunton Island.

Easy guns

Get a bat and kill gang members. If there is a few of them around, use a sniper rifle instead. If the gang shoots at you for no reason, keep away from them. If you need good firepower, get a five star wanted level but make sure the FBI cannot shoot you. Enable the "No wanted level" code and go to the FBI. They will not get in their cars because you cannot walk and aim with some wepons. Punch one to get one star and get into a fist fight with the FBI. Use a bat to kill them. When you have done this, you will get a few handguns and M16 rounds.

Easy ammunition

Note: This trick only works for guns found in your hideout. Take all the guns, then walk into the very back of your garage. Hit the wall, then leave the garage again. All your guns, and anything else that appears there, will be there again. Repeat this until you have enough ammunition for your guns.

Automatic handgun

With the handgun equipped, hold Circle to fire a fury of bullets at a constant rate until your clip runs out.

Faster shooting shotgun

 PlayStation2  Hold Circle to fire the shotgun (or any other lock-on weapon) and press R1 repeatedly to fire it rapidly at your target. This method usually targets many targets around you, resulting in killing everything that is in range. When using the shotgun, try pressing R1 each time your character is about to pump the shotgun to prevent him from jittering, thus making it fire as fast as the handgun.

Repeatedly press [Target] while shooting to shoot the shotgun faster.

Free shotgun

Steal a police car. When you get out you will have a shotgun with five rounds. Note: You cannot use the same car twice.

Go to any Ammunation store and shoot the clerk. Most of the time, you will get his shotgun. Do the same to get ammunition for a shotgun that you already have. If you leave for a little while then return, you can shoot the clerk again. However, if you do not kill him the first time you he will shoot you.

Shotgun rounds

Every police car you get into results in five rounds for a shotgun.

100 armor

In some police stations are Enforcers (police trucks). If you go in them, you will get 100 armor.

Hijack the Line Runner (semi-truck), then exit. You will have 100 armor.

Try to get the S.W.A.T. team after you, then steal the S.W.A.T. van. Once in the van, you will automatically get armor.

Immunity to flamethrower and molotov cocktails

Use the following trick to become immune from the fires caused by the flamethrower and molotov cocktails. Take an adrenaline pill to make the environment go into slow motion. Equip the flamethrower or molotov and use it to set a civilian on fire. Get close enough to the civilian and you will eventually set fire to yourself. Before the flames on you die out, press the replay button. You can either cancel the replay or let it finish. When the game goes back to real time, you will find yourself practically immune from fires from both of these weapons. Note: You must press the replay button before the fire on you dies out. Also, you will not be immune from explosions -- stay away from burning vehicles. You can now set fire on anything that moves and you will not get hurt in the process.

Getting guns

Go by Toni's place to find an alleyway where an Uzi is located. Go near the mob car on the ledge in the other nearby alley -- you can go between two buildings and find an AK47-like rifle and some armor.

Go to Chinatown and look for a Triad member (men with blue uniforms). Run them down with a car until a gun appears (sometimes it is a bat). Alternately, you can get out of your car and hit them with a bat, but you might be spotted by another Triad member and get shot.

Hidden packages

When you see the Rockstar billboard, there are usually some items nearby. On the three islands, hidden packages are usually found near the billboards. For every ten hidden packages you find, you gain access to a new weapon located at your hideout, free of charge.

There is a hidden package on the split bridge. You have to get on the middle to get it, and be on the bridge as it goes up. Note: You must get the package quickly before the bridge goes back down.

If see an alley, a cut-through, a big vacant area, or anyplace where you would never normally go, drive around. There may be a package located there, or at least a gun or health.

Easy hidden packages

 PC  Drive into the water and keep enabling the gesundheit code to stay alive. Keep repeating this until your beeper stops displaying information. You will now have 100 hidden packages.

Free XXX magazine delivery

When you complete all the missions in Portland for El-Burro of the Diablos, you will get a pile of his books by your hideout door.
