Hint: Health recovery:
If you have been getting damaged badly by enemies and are close
to dying, walk up next to a wall. Your character will lean up
against it in order to recover. With each breath your character
takes, part of his bullet holes disappear until he is fully recovered.
This may take a minute -- make sure that no enemies are attacking
If you are very badly, find a car and get into it. Drive around
a little bit. Get out and your character should be feeling slightly
better. If he is still hurting, drive around some more.
Hint: Small boost:
On certain cars you can get a small boost of acceleration. When
you are stopped, hold the handbrake (R1) and hold X.
Keep holding it until the car starts to move forward, even though
you are still pressing the brake. Once it starts to move forward,
release R1. The car should rocket forward. On some cars,
the wheels will just keep spinning and your car will slowly accelerate.
This works well with the station wagon and the Saab.
Hint: Lose pursuing vehicles:
When driving in a police or a gang chase, when you see the police
car rubbing your car on the side, immediately break. The car will
go forward and slide. Then, continue on your mission. Although
it will not help that much, you will still lose the car sometimes.
You can also ram the police car when it swerves into a stop.
Hint: Hidden vehicles:
You can find some hidden vehicles in the parks of London, such
as a sooty van (Little Suzuki van with grass in the back) and
a very fun golf cart parked behind huts and bushes around the
Select Free Roam mode once it is unlocked and make your way onto
Oxford Street from the start point. Head west past the marble
arch and onto Bayswater Road (use the map supplied with the game
for road names). Follow Bayswater Road westward as far as the
game will allow you to go, then turn left at the blockade onto
the Hyde Park Inner Road. The Hyde Park Inner Road U-bends back
around to travel through the center of Hyde Park at this point.
At the back of this U-bend is an open gate. Go through it, and
parked outside a mansion is a Nissan Skyline GTR and a TVR. In
the garage opposite the mansion is a Lotus and a go-cart.
To get the Saab 9X concept car and a Triad Gang Car (souped-up
Honda) in Free Roam mode, in the mission where Carter infiltrates
Jolson's warehouse, go to Chinatown (located in Soho). Go down
into the underground garage (the same car park where the Triads
and Yardies have a gang war). The position of the cars varies
on each floor.
To find a Tank in Free Roam mode, travel east along Birdcage Walk
(near Buckingham Palace). There are some open gates on your right
about half way along (just after the big white building on the
same side). There is a small one-man tank on a plinth just inside
the gates. You can shoot from the turret by pressing L3
(horn). It catches cars and people on fire.
To find a Lotus Esprit in Free Roam mode, drive west along Marylebone
Road (above where it says Marylebone in red letters on the map).
About half way along you will see a green dome on your right.
Just after this is a small road on your right, which runs parallel
to this road (it has Burger King and Vodafone shops on it). At
the end of this small road is a subway entrance. Behind and to
the right of this there is an alley next to the HSBC bank. The
car is in this alley.
Another Nissan Skyline can be found in an alley behind some boxes
in Bermondsey Street, near the Tower Bridge.
To find a Mk II (the car that you start in when you enter Free
Roaming mode), can be found in the left hand side of a car park
in St. Thomas Street, near the Tower Bridge.
In the "Speakers Corner" of Hyde Park (the corner closest
to the Marble Arch) a Golf Cart can be found behind some bushes
in an open grassy area. In car park of the building nearby is
a Royal Parks gardeners pickup van, with grass and plant cuttings
in the back.
To get a modified Peugeot 306, drive west along Horseferry Road
(near the Lambeth Bridge). You will see a blue colored alley blocked
off with some boxes on your right. Follow the alley and go down
into the abandoned multi-story car park. At the bottom is a boy
racer Peugeot 306 behind a large container. It has a bodykit,
neon lights and a huge sound system in the back.
To get a Ford Transit, find one of the jumps around the city (for
example, St. James's Street, near Green Park). There are Ford
Transit vans parked in front of them.
Use the following trick to find the Go-Kart, Lotus, M250, Skyline,
and TVR. The cars can only be found in free roam mode. Start by
making a complete U-turn. Drive straight until you get to the
T-intersection, then make a right turn. Go forward until you reach
a four way intersection. Once again, go to the left. Drive perfectly
straight until you see a large opening with a strange building
with bars on it. Turn left, then take the first right turn. Next,
drive perfectly forward. Go until the road splits (straight or
right). Go straight. Soon, there will be a island with grass.
Go over it and into an opening in the wall. Note: The Go-Kart
and the Lotus is in the garage.
A Maserati Coupe can be found, only in the North American version
of the game. In the same garage that you found the Modified Pugoet
206 is another sports car with stripes on next to it. This car
looks closest to a Maserati, but its front resembles a Ford Mustang.
Its performance characteristics are close to the other sports
cars in the game such as the TVR.
To find a TVR Cerbera, go in the gas station near the warehouse
(the one near the top of the map). It is behind the pay station.
This is the car you get from Jolson's garage.
In free roam mode, you can find a Mercedes Brabus between Eros
and Trafalgar Square. You will find a couple of triads driving
in it. Kill them both, pick up the AK and rag it to the ground.
To find a Go-Cart in free roam mode, go to the garage that has
the Lotus Esprite. You will find a racing Go-Cart behind there.
If it is not there, go somewhere else and return.
In free roam mode, go to the underground car park in the China
Town area. Proceed down to the bottom level to find a new Mini
To get the TVR, Skyline, GoKart, and Lotus, start in free roam
mode. After starting, take the first left, then the next left
and follow the road for a long time. At the end of the road are
red and white concrete barriers. Follow the barriers to the end
then take a right. In the blue wall will be a opening with a narrow
dirt road. Follow the road to find the Skyline, TVR, GoKart (in
the garage) and the Lotus (also in the garage).
Hint: Catch cars on fire:
When attempting to catch a car on fire, aim the front
with the pistol. Aim as low as you can while still hitting the
car. It will smoke after about ten shots. After another few, the
car will catch fire. Note: When using AK47, the car will sometimes
jump a few feet in the air while erupting in flame.
Hint: Car repair:
Damage to your car will be repaired after an intermission
sequence is triggered.
Hint: Big air:
Obtain an MKII (the car you start with in free ride
mode) and go very fast along the Hyde Park inner road. While speeding,
hit one of the cement dividers in the middle of the road and your
car should fly up in the air. This also works if you hit one of
the poles in the dividers at high speed on some of the other roads.
Go to the old appearing reddish-brown building at St. Pancreas
Station (along Maryborle Road). You will see a type of loop or
drop off circle in front of it. At the point where it turns back
around is a staircase. Drive over the staircase. Drive up the
sidewalk a few blocks, turn around, and drive back up the staircase
at full speed. Your car will go flying through the air, and perhaps
hit the other buildings if done fast enough.
Hint: Bounce car in air:
Steal the old 60's looking sedan or coupe and drive
to the stairway at the reddish-brown building at St. Pancreas
Station. Drive off the top of the staircase at full speed. When
you hit the ground, your car will bounce back up into the air
about 20 feet.
This should work in any part of the game that has the little medians
with the small green, yellow, and white barrels on them. Get a
car and accelerate using the Right Analog-stick instead
of X. This allows you to accelerate faster. Hit those medians
dead center and watch the car lift about 20 feet in the air, then
hit the ground and bounce back up again. Also, on some streets
you will see a tow truck parked on the side of the road with a
ramp-like flatbed on the back. Try going up it very fast in certain
cars. It may make it up the ramp. Other cars will just crash into
the back of the flatbed Note: You have to hit it more to the right
side of the ramp.
Hint: Flip car over:
If you have a fast car, look for a sort of statue in
the Chinatown Soho area. It is small and in the middle of a sidewalk
next to a one way road and has some steps around it. Gain some
speed and hit the steps at an angle without hitting the statue
itself. Your car should flip through the air.
In most rear wheel drive cars, for example the Lotus
Esprit, you can get the car to donut in circles by applying full
lock on the steering and accelerate with the Right Analog-stick
as hard as possible. Then, hold R3. Use this to make clouds
Hint: Aboard The Sol Vita mission:
A way of getting past all the gang members on deck
is to go to the steps. Do not go up them. To the left, you will
see a tall crane. Attached to the crane is a platform of tanks
(oil drums). Go around the back of them and you will see a gap
you can get into. Once you are in it, an intermission sequence
will start. You will be lifted past all of the gang members. By
the time you are put down, they will mostly be dead. The crane
will drop you where you need to be. Go up the little steps to
get into the ship.
Hint: Do The World A Favour mission: Kill
After you stop talking to the man laying in the bed,
when out of the room kill the men in he hallway. Then, walk next
door to the room you walked out of. There will be a man laying
in bed. You can shoot him. Aim at his chest and shoot, then you
will hear a long beep.
Hint: Land Of Hope And Glory mission:
When you are escaping the Sol Vita and come down the
stairs at the start, on the left hand side there is an explosion
which brings down a staircase blocking your way through. However,
first kill the men in front of you, then the man on the walkway
above the wreckage. Then, instead of having to go through the
package room, where you fight Harry for Hammond, go up to the
wreckage. There will be a part where the floorway meets the hand
rails. If you roll in the correct location, Carter will roll straight
through the wreckage, avoiding the package room area and saving
time and health.
Hint: The Prodigal Son mission: Steal TVR:
Get to Charlie's manor. After you go up the first set
of stairs and are outside, shoot the two gang members and turn
right as soon as you get up the stairs. Then in the hall, turn
left to find a TVR in a garage. Complete the mission, then return
into the manor (which will now be empty of all gang members).
Get in the TVR with Yasmin. The garage will open, and you can
drive away with it. Note: There is one woman in the manor just
when you walk in who is unarmed and says "Hammond, I've been
wanting to talk to you".
Hint: Free roam mode: Get to Mansion:
Make a full 180 degree turn, then go straight. Take
the first left at the fork. Go straight and make a right turn
at the four way intersection. Drive straight, but keep to the
left. You will eventually see a large empty space with a strange
gate with bars on it. Take a left turn at the gate, then right,
then stay to the left. There will there will be a hole in the
wall. Enter the hole to find the mansion.
Hint: Free roam mode: Gravel driveway:
Go forward, take the first left, and go to the end
of that street. Then, take another left and drive until you see
the forest part of town. Take the first left then your first right.
Drive forward and there will be a turn. However, on the wall there
is a gate. Go inside and follow the road. You will find a Nissan
Skilyne (white), TVR Cerebra (bluish purple), Lotus Elise (white),
and Go-Cart (blue). Note: When you go to driveway take a right
turn when you see the Nissan. There will be a wall with an opening.
The Lotus and Go-Cart are inside.
Hint: Turn signals:
In free roam mode, for added realism you can use your
indicators (turn signals). Press L1 to indicate right and
L2 to indicate left.
Note: The turn signals will turn off automatically after you make
your turn. If you try the turn signals and they are not signaling
for an intentional turn, you can always turn them off by pressing
R1 again for your right signal or R2 again for the
Shoot tires out on any car. If you drive hard enough
on the tires, they will fall off and you will be riding on rims
with flying sparks.
Hint: Drive with no tires:
When walking around in free roam mode, stop a car and
shoot the hood. After a few seconds it will catch fire and the
person in it will run out screaming in flames. When the fire dies
out, you can get in the burnt car and drive. Since the fire destroys
the tires, sparks will appear when you move.
Hint: Overturn vehicle:
This works best with the Daihatsu Van, the Ford Transit
or the Hiace people carrier. It also works with police cars, but
is rare. In free roam mode, go to St. Pancras station (Kings Cross)
and go to the area where the stairs are located. Go all the way
to the gas station, and drive towards the steps at full throttle.
When you get to the top of the steps, swerve left then turn right
when you get to the elevated stair-looking area. When you get
to the top of them, turn left again so that the car spins the
opposite way. It should either flip over or hit the station wall.
If you manage to get it over, shoot the radiator on the car until
it catches on fire; you will get better effects of the flames.
Hint: Gas tank kills:
Shoot a gas tank when an enemy is nearby to easily
kill them by burning.
Hint: Pistol whip:
If you have a gun, are close enough to somebody, and
press Square to shoot at them, your character may whip
them with the gun instead. Other people such as gang members or
cops also do this to you.
Hint: Better weapon accuracy:
Use this trick with inaccurate weapons at a longer
such, as the AK. Instead of auto-aiming for an enemy. use manual
aim. Manual is perfectly accurate. Use this technique when shooting
an enemy at medium range, or when an enemy is hiding behind an
Hint: Steal spike strip:
Get to a police roadblock and press R1 + Square
to pick up the spike strip. You can use it against the police
or gang cars. This can be put in as many times as needed to get
multiple spike strips.
Hint: Watch Layla dance:
In the level where you have to find Layla, do not shoot
at or near her. Do not walk too close or she will be shot in the
Hint: Undercover police:
Undercover police drive around in white Lexus cars.
The are difficult to find because the car is unmarked and they
wear ordinary clothes. if they see you getting up to anything
you should not be doing, they will get out of their car and start
shooting you. One of them has a pistol and the other an AK47.
Hint: Police roadblock:
Commit a crime until the police chase you. Then, badly
damage their car or shoot them. They will soon set up a roadblock
with two police vans, a few cars, cones, and a spike strip.
Hint: Police van:
Get the police to chase after you until they set up
a roadblock. At the road block will be two police vans. Quickly
get out of your car and get in the van. Note: The police will
shoot at you and your car. To activate the siren, press L3.
Hint: Escape from police quickly:
Drive fast along the road, then do a 180. The police
will also do a 180. As soon as they drive over to your car, do
another 180 and speed off down the road.
Hint: Driving through police road blocks:
When the police have set up a roadblock to stop you,
it will appear as follows. police van (left side), police cars
(middle left), spike strip (middle right), police van (right side).
When approaching the road block, slam the brakes then quickly
get in one of the vehicles blocking the road. Turn it around and
speed off. The police car chasing you will crash into the roadblock.
Note: When in a police vehicle blocking the road, be careful not
to drive over the spike strips. Also, when you stop your vehicle
or get out at the roadblock, the police will start shooting you.
Hint: Avoid getting arrested or shot by
When being chased by police on foot, get in any vehicle.
The police will not be able to shoot or arrest. Note: The police
will only shoot at your vehicle if you have committed a lot of
crime. Beware of undercover police, as one of them has an AK47
which will put your car up in smoke.
When you attract a lot of police attention and cannot find a quick
way of escape, grab a civilian. The police will stop shooting
and look as if they try to plead with you. They will not fire
at all, even if you start killing people. Note: This only works
if you are facing the police or are within 35 to 50 feet away
from them. This trick does not work against gangs.
To get police to stop shooting at you, take a hostage and face
the cops. They will immediately surrender.
Hint: Shooting around corners:
Put your back against a wall. When you are at an edge
of a doorway press Square to shoot around the corner without
Hint: DC Carter moves:
Knock out hostage: With a gun, press X to get a hostage
then press Square.
Kick hostage: While unarmed, X to get a hostage then press
Kick, arrest, and leave them on the floor: Press X or Square.
Hint: Mark Hammond moves:
Shoot hostage: With a gun, press X to get a hostage, then
Break hostage's neck: While unarmed, press X to get a hostage,
then press Square.
Hint: Pedestrian commentary:
Walk down the sidewalk and listen carefully. You can
sometimes hear people saying "Its that guy, Mark Hammond!"
or "Its the guy who killed his wife!". If you are in
a shootout with the police, you can sometimes hear them say "Stop
this now Hammond!"
Hit the railings alongside the road and someone will say "I've
just polished that"
Glitch: Game crash:
There are two versions of the game. The new version
is edited for content and is missing the Snowhill level from the
original release. If you try to use a memory card with saved information
from the original version and try to load it with the new version,
the game will crash repeatedly.
Glitch: Stuck in cargo hole:
When you are playing as Mark Hammond and are on the
Boat Sol Vita, kill all the gang members on the deck and go around
the back way. You will find a forklift on that side. Along the
deck is a railing with a large cargo hole on the other side. Repeatedly
jump and dive against the railing. It will catapult you onto the
cargo hole. You will not be able to get off or over unless you
restart the level.
Glitch: Walk around the world:
Hit the barrier at the end of Wesminister Street and
Buckingham Palace Road at the correct angle and you can get through
and walk for miles. It is full of clouds, and you will suddenly
reappear at another end of the game. It may take a lot of attempts
to get through, as getting the correct angle can be quite difficult.
During the intermission sequence in The Land of Hope and Glory
mission where Charlie goes nuts, hold X and press Left
Analog-stick Forward. After the level loads, Frank will be
walking on clouds. Note: Do not try to roll while there or the
game may freeze. Also, this may require several attempts.
Glitch: Floating and invisible people:
Drive down any street in free roam mode. Look up at
the sky a little closer, and you will see people walking in mid-air
while you are in your vehicle. While driving on the sidewalk,
in some places you might see a person just appear when you hit
them, who was not there before.
Look up when you out and in a vehicle. You will see floating people
moving very quickly.
Glitch: Instant death:
Walk down any street that has cars. Do not go in front
of the car, but go to the side of it. When the car is almost by
you, press Circle. Your character will automatically fall
over and die.
Glitch: Fireproof drivers:
In free-aim mode, shoot the hood of a car to catch
it on fire from a long distance. When it catches fire, wait until
it dies out. Wait until the black smoke floats out then go next
to the car. The car will be totally burned, but the driver is
not. The driver will continue driving on invisible tires. However
if you get in the car, you will be riding on rims with sparks.
Glitch: Sink through ground:
When at the tank location, make a right. Keep driving
straight until you reach some water. Turn left down the first
alley with a black post. Then make a right turn, then a left turn.
Keep driving until you see an overpass. Get on the left sidewalk
and drive towards the wanted sign. You should sink into the sidewalk.
