The best way to get easy money in free ride mode is in the countryside on the main road (where the few stores are located). Speed down that road (with the governor off) to collect basically $100 per second.

Hint: Shoot off tires:
Aiming at tires and shooting where the bolts are, in the middle. This works best with the Tommy gun.

Hint: Quick reloading:
With heavy weapons like the Thompson, press L1 and you will instantly reload. With handguns, simply roll to the left or right to instantly reload. The sound of the gun reloading will continue even after you reload.

Hint: Vehicle kill zones:
When taking out a vehicle, the following are the easiest and quickest ways to do so. Direct hits to the radiator in most cars will blow them up with two or three shots with the sawed-off shotgun, which is the weapon of choice. Some other good spots to hit are the front right, front left, and rear (central rear panel where gas tank would be located).
Brandon Cross.

Hint: Quick gun:
While driving through the city, you will encounter many police officers. You can run one of them down and pick up his standard issued gun. Your wanted level will go up, but immediately diminish. This works best if there is only one police officer, on foot, with no police officer witnesses.
Kevin Dean.

In free ride mode, taxi drivers and sometimes regular motorists will carry the small brown revolver and the small silver revolver. Pull them out of their cars and kill them to get the weapon.

Hint: Killing people in black suits:
Walk behind them and shoot them. This works best with the sawed off shotgun.

Use a car for killing them and run them over. When they drop their weapons, they are dead.

When they are on the street, use the machine gun to spray them in the back. If done correctly, they will not even have a chance to turn around.
Brandon Cross.

Hint: Lose cops quickly:
Get to a rail station, elevated rail station, or trolley. Get in and wait until your wanted level goes down.

The most efficient way to evade the police is make a lot of turns. The best turns are in front of or behind another car or the trolley. The police will try to make your exact turn, but will run into the car or trolley. You can also make turns between light posts close to the curb if your car is small or short enough. This also works well during the first mission.
Kevin Dean.

If you have a gun and the cops are after you, you can get rid of them by shooting them. This takes some practice, but it can be done. You have to be on foot. Shoot both cops until their weapons fall. Head shots work best. If you manage to kill both advancing officers, you will no longer be wanted. This works best if there is only one car after you (the offense does not matter). The more the cars, the more difficult it is.
Kevin Dean.

Whenever being chased by cops there are cars that in the distance generate to keep the traffic normal. Press R2 + L2 and the cars in the distance will disappear. This is useful when you get a new car and want to drive it as fast as possible.

Hint: An Offer You Can't Refuse: Lose the gangsters:
When you first start driving, go all the way down the road and take a right. Follow this road. This will lead you to where there is only a right turn. Take the turn. Looking left, there seems to be a small barrier blocking the ocean. At the beginning of the turn there is actually a hidden bottom where you can drive. If you slow down to about 50 or 60 miles per hour, drive over the barrier. By going slow enough, you can land at the bottom drive part. The enemy gangsters will not slow down. They will follow you over the barrier. If they have the correct angle or speed, they will fly into the ocean or land upside down. If you have not gone over the ocean or flipped over, there is a ramp where you can escape the gangsters and finish the level. Note: This may require a few attempts.

Hint: Better Get Used To It: Bucket weapon:
Vincenzo gives you a bat and a gun. Turn around and pick up the bucket that is in the room. You can use it as a weapon, and it is easier to control than the bat.

Hint: Créme de la Créme: Killing Morello:
When you get to the countryside, keep a distance from Morello's car. He will then pass the airport. Keep following him out to the bridge near the Lay-By. You will see that it is under construction. An intermission sequence where Tommy pushes Morello's car out over the bridge will begin, and the mission will be completed. It is of course funnier to play the airport mission, but this is much faster.
Oliver Hvarre.

Hint: Créme de la Créme: Easy completion:
To easily complete the mission, just ride alongside Morello's limo. Sam and Paulie will shoot through the glass with their Tommy guns and kill Morello without having to enter the airport.
Pavel Zonov.

Hint: Election Campaign: No chase:
On the level that you assassinate the politician, at the end before you leave the prison, make sure you have killed everyone then waste all of your ammunition. By doing this, when you walk out into the street the man that searches you will say "You're clean. Sorry to waste your time", and you can get to the bar without being chased.

Hint: Election Campaign: No police:
Kill the man guarding the manhole that is used to gain access to the prison. Stand next to his body, press Action, and select "Hide Body". There will be no police waiting for you when you come out of the prison.

Hint: Just For Relaxation: Getting the cigar crates:
When the boss tells you he is going to the bathroom, follow him. He will walk up to a tree. Take out the crowbar you got from the truck driver then hit the boss. He will usually go down with one swing. Then, walk back to the cigar crates. The man with the Thompson does not know that the crate should not be touched. Then, just drive the truck back to Paulie and Sam.

Hint: The Omeria: Save ammunition and time:
When you go to find Frank's family, they are in a building. They are standing next to a phone. There is a man in the phone booth. He is calling the police because he heard gunshots. If you shoot him before the end of the phone call, the police will not be in the parking lot, and you can just drive away.
Joe Zampatori.

Hint: Ordinary Routine: Easier mission:
You can save some effort by shooting the tires on the getaway car before you try to enter the hotel. It is much easier than trying to shoot them while driving at the same time.

First, aim at the center bolt of a wheel on the yellow car and shoot a tire off. Then, go in the room labeled "WC". No one is in there. Get the Tommy gun from the bed. On the wall is health for Sam. Do not take it. Instead, wait outside the toilet and you will hear a flush. Kill the man who comes out of the toilet, then turn round and wait for men to reach the top of the stairs. Kill them all. Go down the stairs and press L3 to kneel down. Then, kill everyone in the snooker room. Next, go back up and get the health. Get the Tommy gun from behind the counter, then go in the room with no door to find Sam. An intermission sequence will begin. Kill the fat man, Another intermission sequence will start, with a man trying to get away with your money. However, he will not get in the car because of the missing tire missing. Shoot him with your Tommy to complete the mission
Paul Fulton.

Hint: Ordinary Routine: Extra health:
If you are having problems completing the motel part of the mission, use the following trick to get extra health. If you go into the second door on the right in the hall, after you have already broken into the hotel from the back, walk straight forward. Then, turn to your right. You will see another door. Go into this door and you will see a medicine cabinet. Press Action at the medicine cabinet to receive 30 more health points. Try saving them until you absolutely need it. Later in the mission you must put up with some fists of fury after already enduring punches and bullets.
Chris Roberts.

Hint: Ordinary Routine: Tommy gun:
When you climb your way to the top door, go in and walk to the end of the hall. Open the door labeled "WC" and kill the man in there. Then go to the closed door parallel to where you came in. It is unlocked. Open it and enter. There is a box with health inise, and a Tommy gun on the bed.
Curt Shry.

Hint: The Whore: Easy completion:
Your objectives in this mission are to kill the manager; tell the whore to leave town; and place a bomb and documents on the desk of the director's office. First, tell the whore to leave town. However, to do so, you walk in a lobby of a hotel without having any weapons out. There will be two security guards with weapons. When you walk in you will see stairs and the sign on the desk. To your right will be a doorway. Go through it and take a left without going into any doors, then take a left. Enter the first door on the left. There will be steel stairs for every floor. Go to the third floor. Take a right down a hallway. It will have a plant in the corner. Enter the first door on the left to find the whore. Then, go back down to the lobby. You cannot have any weapons out the entire time. When you are in the lobby, go under the stairwell in the corner where no one can see you. Press Up to take out your weapon. Then use the Right Analog-stick to aim at the person behind the sign at the desk. Kill him and the two men that will come up to you. After killing them, go behind the desk and enter the back room. There will be a green arrow pointing at a key. Press X to retrieve it, then go back to the steel staircase. Go to the top floor and take a right. Go down the hall half way until you reach another lobby. Kill the man on your left, then go to the other side. You will be facing a door with one on your left with the sign directory. Go in and kill the man in the black suit first. Then, kill the man in the white suit. After doing so, go in front of the desk and press X. After that, leave the room.

Hint: You Lucky Bastard: Take out snipers:
When you enter the dock, get a truck and drive to the other entrance to the harbor. Nearby, there is a house with a man. Kill him. He has a US rifle, which you should use to shoot the round fuel containers near the crane towers. The snipers will not shoot you, and you will get to see a really great fireworks display.

Hint: You Lucky Bastard: Thomson gun:
When you have to take Pauly to kill Segerio Morello and must escape instead of running, get out of the car and kill all of your enemies. Search all their bodies. From one of them, you will get a Thomson 1928 which is useful at the harbor.

Hint: Huge drop:
Go to free ride mode and go to the countryside. You will start in some dirt and. To the right, there will be a hill. Go up the hill and follow the road. Keep going straight until you reach a bridge. Go straight for awhile until you see a small brown shack on your left. Notice that next to the shack is an opening in the fence. Drive right off. It is big cliff. If you land wrong you can die on impact.

Hint: Baseball bat:
To get a baseball bat in free ride mode, someone will always have one in a taxi.

Glitch: Hydrant in the air:
Start Free Ride mode. When you pull out on the end of the right-hand street, there is a hydrant. Shoot it with the sawed off shotgun continuously and it will go into the air.
