Get to Staunton Island early
Use the following trick to get to Staunton Island before the bridge is fixed and before the subway is open. Go to the bridge to Staunton Island. Go past where the blockage cones are located, to basically be on the bridge. Enable the "Flying car" code, then the "Tank" code. Make sure you are all the way back to get enough room to take off using the tank (as a plane). Start firing the cannon backwards and accelerate. Keep firing the cannon backwards, and just as you get to the edge where the bridge has been broken, you will take off. Try and get back on the ground. If done correctly you will now be on Staunton Island. Note: When you cross the bridge, the "Welcome To Staunton Island" screen will appear to confirm success. Note: You can use nearly any car, but the tank has a better ability to fly higher.
, , and
PlayStation2 Steal an Ambulance from Sweeney Hospital. Go to the bridge and enable the "Better driving skills" code. Drive your ambulance on the road towards the bridge and press L3 just before the road starts to dip down. If done correctly, you should make it across, but your ambulance will probably tip over and explode. Make sure you are out of the way, then run into Staunton Island.
Note: When on Staunton Island you can not do any missions. When you die, you will be transported back to the hospital in Portland.
You can fly over to Staunton Island by enabling the "Tank" and "Flying car" codes after dropping off 8 Ball. However, only activate the "Tank" code when you have walked onto the broken bridge. You cannot save the game over in Staunton Island, and if you die or get arrested you will be transported back to Portland.
PlayStation2 Enable the "Better driving skills" and the "Flying car" code after you drop 8-Ball off at the hideout. After you drop off Misty at the Luigis Sex Club 7, go to the fire station and get the fire truck. Do not disable the codes. Instead, go to the bridge and jump the gates. Drive off the bridge slowly until there is a big shadow mark, then hit the gas. Once you start going in the air press the Up for about one second, then release. Keep doing this continuously. Once in Staunton Island you can easily go to the lift bridge to go to Shoreside Vale, however the lift bridge is more difficult than the Callahan Bridge.
Steal a Mafia Sentinel and go the Callahan Bridge. Aim the Sentinel towards the break in the bridge and floor it. The car will leap over the gap in the bridge.
Get a Banshee (one location is in the glass-windowed building next to 8-Ball's Bomb Shop) and go to the bridge that leads over to Staunton Island. Get on the edge of where the bridge starts, and drive up past the obstacles. Enable the "Flying car" code. Drive fast to get across the opening; start near the bottom of where the bridge starts. When you approach the opening, press Up to fly. Note: This must be timed correctly,
In the "Last Request" mission, it is possible to "maroon" the Japanese girl. To do this, look for the closest "island" when you pick her and Maria up. Get to the island and back the boat up a slope. You will hear crunching sounds. Experiment, and sooner or later she will drop off the boat and onto the island. From there, get to Staunton Island. You can cruise around and do everything else except take up any missions or side jobs. Kill Maria or the Japanese girl and the mission will end.
PC Find a very fast car, such as the Banshee in the shop at 8-Balls. Drive to the bridge and stop at the beginning. Enable the chittychittybb code. Accelerate, and if you are lucky, you will fly over the gap and land on the other side. It will take some practice before you succeed. Test it with different distances before the edge.
PC Go to the bridge at the beginning at the game with a fast car such as the Esparanto (from the parking lot near the bridge). Enable the chittychittybb code and fly away to Staunton Island.
Complete 100 taxi missions, (drop off 100 people), and a Red Faster
Cabbie will be unlocked at the taxi building in Portland (near
the tunnel entrance). Note: Drop off 100 people total, not at
one time.<A NAME="OLE_LINK1">
Start in your hideout, get the bat, and steal a car. Go on the
walkway and drive up to the steps near China Town. You can kill
as many people as desired and get easy money. Watch out for the
cops and triads. Do not use a gun to kill a triad member, or your
wanted level will go up. If this happens and it is only one star,
and go on the tracks until your wanted level goes back down.
Load up on as many guns as possible or enable the "All weapons"
code. Go to the Diablos phone box where you receive your missions.
Run around the corner until you are beside the stairs to the monorail.
Stand with your back to the wall. From here you can take out as
many people as desired without worrying about the cops killing
you. The cop cars drive recklessly back and forth trying to get
closer but they cannot reach you. Only the helicopters can shoot
you, but are easily dealt with.
Drive to the docks turn after all the caravan trailers. Keep going
straight ahead then turn left. There should be a large boat (the
same one that you destroy in the "Bomb Da Base" mission).
Run up the ramp onto the boat. Shoot every pedestrian you see
and your wanted level will rocket up. Stay on the boat and wait
for the police to arrive. Any cars that approach will run straight
into the water. The officers will also run into the water. Your
only worry will be the helicopters, and with the "All weapons"
code enabled, they can easily be disposed of.
Get away from felony
If you have six stars or less and you want to get away from the
cops go near Luigi's in the red light district. Opposite the subway
is a building which has glass windows. Go into this building and
the Army or cops will not follow. You will be safe, but if you
go out again you will get shot.
Wait until the monorail arrives, then quickly run up the stairs
and get on. You will now see the train traveling around the island
with FBI and helicopters chasing it. The train is indestructible
and the helicopters cannot hit you if you are inside. After awhile
on the train, your wanted level will go down.
Take the pill that is in the Portland docks, hidden
between two mobile homes. Then, run towards the ships until you
find the building with the stairs. Run up the stairs to get on
top of the roof. Across from you on the roof is a package. Run
as fast as you can and jump just before you fall off the end.
You should make it if the pill has not worn off yet.
Go to 8-Ball's. Once there, find a tunnel and drive through it.
In the middle of the tunnel, you will find four old ladies. Run
them over if desired. The hidden package is in the middle of them.
There is a place on your map the do not show where
you can accept a mission. Go to where The J (Joey's) was located.
Go directly north from there until reaching the next building
(which is very close) . There should be a phone there. Answer
it if it is ringing to get the mission for someone named Morty.
, , and
Go to the Bitchin' Dog Food building during the day. The phoneoutside will ring and you can receive missions from Morty.
and Go to Momma's Resturante Tony's contacting site. Go to the steps that do not lead to the parking lot. Across from those steps, you will see an alley with a van parked there. "TOYZ 'N' THE HOOD" will be marked on the side of the van. Get in it to activate a mission that allows you to blow up Mafia Sentinels, and will result in $1000 for each Mafia car you destroy.
Go to the Hepburn Heights Monorail Station. Keep walking past the staircase, and around the corner and you will find a "Toyz N The Hood" Truck. It will ask you to destroy Diablo Stallions for $1000 each. Do not get out of the truck or the mission will end.
- In Diablo turf, very close to Luigi's club.
- On top of the train tracks.
- In the same location where the flame thrower was in the Trail By Fire mission.
- In Mafia turf around Toni's, by those two parked Mafia cars above the ground.
- In between two small buildings across the street from Supa Save store.
- By the Callaham bridge in Triad turf, across the old school hal.
In Portland, near Toni's place, is an alley with a
parked van marked "Toyz". Get in the van to play a rampage
mini-game involving an RC car with a bomb attached to it. You
get $1000 for each Mafia car you destroy. This game can be played
as many times as needed.
Wait until it is 21:00 or later at night. Go to where
Luigi hang outs (the Red Light District).
Get a decent car, such as the cab or something that
is not too heavy. Drive from your hideout in Portland to the end
of the road to your left. Turn around, and drive on the grass
under the monorail tracks. On the left section of grass will be
a jump made out of concrete. Jump off it, and try to land on the
monorail tracks, or at least on the stairway so you are facing
the same way that you were driving. Drive in-between the tracks,
as you do not want to take a chance at getting knocked off by
the monorail. You will soon see a glowing circle on your right,
which is the flamethrower. Drive over to it, and park next to
the ledge-type object below it. Jump onto the hood of the car
and take the flamethrower. Save the game at this point, as it
may be difficult to get it again.
Go on the raised railroad (do not get on a train) and walk to
the Head Radio building. Jump on the building to find a flamethrower.
Go to where you had to blow up Mike Forelli (St. Mark's Bistro)
and go to the stairs that lead to the train tracks. Ride on the
tracks you should see a flamethrower on a building.
Go to 8-Ball's auto yard, and take the path leading
to the garage. Before you enter the garage is a path leading left.
Take this path, then go straight until you find train tracks.
Turn right following, the train tracks. This leads into a tunnel.
Keep going until you find a group of bums. Run over and kill them.
They will leave Molotov cocktails and a hidden package.
, , and
Paper body targets
Go by Luigi's club, but turn in the alley to your right.
There will be three paper body targets located there.
Drive on elevated train tracks
In the highest area of Portland is elevated train station.
The path leading up to the tracks is large enough to fit a car.
Get on Chinatown rooftops
Go to the jump that has a parking lot before it. Enable
the "Better driving skills" code. Go off the jump against
the wall and try to make it on the train tracks. Go a little father
and you will see a building close to the tracks. Go as fast as
possible to jump from the tracks to the building.
Police station fort
This fort will take some time, so be ready. You will
also need several cars (preferably Coaches). Go to the Coach station
in Portland near Joey's place. There should be a few Coaches at
this location. Take these Coaches to the police station. Line
them up in front of the police parking lot wall, end-to-end, but
leave the entrance to the police station open because Army tanks
will eventually block that for you. Next, take the ambulance that
is usually parked next door at the hospital. If it is not there,
just walk some distance away and one should appear. This will
be the "bomb". You can use anything for that, but the
ambulance is the easiest to get. Park this near the stop lights.
Next, go up the ramp located on the side of the police station
that is closest to the hospital. When you are up there, start
shooting pedestrians as they appear and your wanted level will
soon skyrocket. Once the police show up, kill them for some money.
Now it is time for the "bomb". When police officers
speed down the road where you parked the "bomb", they
will usually get caught up just around the stop lights, either
by traffic or other officers. Take out a strong gun and blast
the "bomb". That should take out a large number of cops
and give you some real money. Beware of the Army though -- they
pack M-16s which can kill you almost instantly if you have no
armor. If things get a little too hasty, enable the "Lower
wanted level" code. Note: This can also be done at other
Kill a lot of police
PlayStation2 In Trenton (near Joey's Place) is a location where
the police almost never can get you. When you look at the map
of the area where Joey is, notice the road leading out of the
two box-like things on the map. Follow this road until you are
near Atlantic Quays. On the right will be an area with a gate
that will open. Enable the "Better driving skills" code,
then jump the gate or wall to get in there. The police cannot
get in there except with a lucky flip or jump. You can press Select
many times out of the vehicle until the camera angle above you
appears. Enable the "All weapons" code and get out the
flamethrower to kill many pedestrians and cops when facing the
walls. Be careful, if you have five stars and walk slowly around
the gate, you will be shot a lot by the FBI. There is a way out
-- walk on the hay structure next to the building. Walk a little
on the roofs and jump off. You also can find a hidden item and
armor on the far end.
Free law enforcement cars without risk of felony
At the dock in Portland, where there is an area that
has yellow stripes, if you can manage to take the police car,
the Enforcer, the FBI car, the Barracks OL, the Rhino, an ambulance,
and a fire truck, there will be Grand Theft Auto 3 icons
that have the name of each car above them. Walk into one. The
crane will bring that vehicle off the ship and put it into the
area with yellow stripes.
When you are getting off the bridge going to Portland,
take the first right. Follow the curve then turn right. Next take
the first right again into a parking lot. When you are in the
parking lot, turn left and go between the buildings. When between
the buildings, turn left. When you get out of the building, turn
right to find the a garage that you use to collect cars. When
you get all the cars, you will get a big cash bonus and unlimited
amount of cars that you delivered.
On the high bluff just past Salvatore's Gentleman's Club, you can see the lighthouse. Enable the "Flying car" code, get a Banshee or other fast car, and it will be possible to jump/fly to the lighthouse. Note: It is impossible to escape from the rock. You will slide into the water if you stop moving.
At night (when the weather is clear), go to Salvatore
Leone's Gentlemen's Club in St. Marks. As you reach the end of
the driveway, go up his steps to his house. Walk straight (you
may need to use R3 to navigate), then look closely to see
the Big Dipper.
Garbage can death
Get a car, enable the "Better Driving Skills"
code, and go to the construction yard (next to the gas station,
fire station, or 8-Ball's bomb shop). Get back as far as you can
(away from the car crusher). Speed up towards the crusher and
press L3 to jump in it. This may take a few attempts. To
make it better, enable the "Slow motion" code two times.
Walk into your garage and let the camera pan out. Your
power-ups will have regenerated after you leave the garage.
Destroy full winged Dodo
Enable the "Fly car" code and get a tank.
Turn the turret around and find a long straight path to take off.
Go to the crusher in Portland and fly around until you see a full
winged Dodo. Ram into it or turn the turret and shoot it. The
Dodo will explode and you will be at wanted level 4. You can also
shoot the Dodo if you stand on the cement platform behind the
crusher. When one flies over, use the bazooka to shoot it down.
Go to Portland via the tunnel. Just after you exit the tunnel,
go up to the cement overpass where you can look down at the car
crusher across from 8 Ball's. Turn around and look to the right
of a radio tower with your rocket launcher. In awhile, a full
winged Dodo will fly over. For about one second it will be low
enough to blast out of the sky. It makes for some great special
effects, especially at night.
Enable the "All weapons" code multiple times. Switch your weapons to the sniper rifle. Take a car and go to the nearest train station in Portland. Go onto the middle of the
tracks where the trains do not pass. Keep walking and look for a building that is almost touching the tracks. There is a flamethrower there, highlighted in purple. Make sure a train is not coming, then jump onto the building. From here you can snipe, throw grenades, use a bazooka, or just shoot people without being attacked by the police. The police will gather below you and you can shoot at them. The only thing that can hit you are the helicopters, which can be killed in one to four bazooka shots, depending on where hit.
Go to Portland next to where Joey's missions were with any wanted level. Open the gates and go in. Once you are in, the police cannot get in unless you open the gates for them. You are only vulnerable to helicopters.
The railroad that runs about Portland is a good choice as it allows you to move across almost the entire city and has three ways of getting off. Do not stand near a station or the cops will run up the stairs and either bust or waste you.
Go to the Bitch 'N' Dog Food factory. Gain access via the railroad. However, only use this if you really have to, as not many people or cars pass that area.
Sounds from Momma's Restaurant
In Portland, at Momma's Restaurant (Tony's contacting site), you can go up the door which is up the steps and listen into the door. You can hear wedding music, and sometimes Tony will say "But Ma, I am really a man.
