In GTA: Vice City you can drive helicopters instead of just looking at them. You can get close to the ground and chop people with the blades!!!!
Kent Paul is located at the Malibu club. His first mission for you is "Death Row". When approaching the entrance to the junk yard, there are an abundance of gang members. Once you have killed all of them, collect their money and let Lance die. Once the mission is over, start it again.
If you go by the downtown area's ammunation there is a house for sale. It costs $14000 which really isn't that much. If you buy it you get 3 garages that can store 2 cars each. You also get a helicopter, it is on the roof of the place.
As far as I have seen, there hasn't been anything for unlimited ammo. The trick is simply to reach 10,000 spare ammo. After this, the numbers indicating the ammo should disappear.
You can buy the boatyard for $10,000. Get into one of the boats to start "Checkpoint Charlie". You have to get to the end before time runs out. Once you complete it, it will generate up to $2,000 a day.
Get a score of 45 or higher in the shooting range located inside the ammunation downtown and you will be rewarded with rapid fire. This will allow you to go through all your weapons ammo without having to reload.
If you find Vice City a little hazy, press Start and select Display. Set Trails to OFF. This will sharpen the graphics.
First, go to starfish island and head to the east island. As soon as your on the highway head south and about only 50 yards south of the bridge there will be the ice cream parlor.
From the ice cream place head south on the highway take the second right turn. It's hard to see when driving but shows up quick on the map as a really short road, on that road take the very first right then continue on the road. The car dealership is the first building on the right and can be bought for 70, 000 dollars.
When your phone rings equip the M16 rifle and go into aim mode then answer the phone. Go out of aim mode and you can now use your weapons while talking. To make the M16 a sniper rifle you simply have to equip the sniper rifle while you are talking on the phone and go into aim mode and once you are off the phone you will automatically switch back to the M16 still in aim mode and it will be a sniper rifle. Note: the M16 will only be a sniper rifle until you go out of aim mode
Locate the Pay 'n' Spray in Ocean Baech. Walk a block (but don't cross the street) and find a pink/tan apartment (number 3C), Tean take a look at the Scarface inspired bathroom. (and you get a free chainsaw too.)
When you are running away from a cop press x two times. And on the second time hold it down. Warning running power may ware out.
Enable the "Rhino" code and put two tanks in front of the other motorcycles. You will have enough room to get in front. Keep up your speed and you will win the race easily because the other motorcycles will crash into the tank and either fall off or have to go around them, using up time.
When you start this last mission for the movie studio, it calls for you to do the stunts via the red PCJ 600 motorcycle or any bike. However, this is not necessary. After doing the first two pink circle check points (one before the elevator and the other in the second building's big hole you jump to), ride the bike over to the Hyman Condo and use your helicopter for all the rest. It is fast and easier.
Buy the Print Works located northeast of Escobar International Airport for $70,000. Complete the two missions that are now unlocked and the business will begin making money for you. The maximum amount you can make per day is $8,000.
This is really cool if you want to take a ride in your mansion (after you kill Diaz) this is what you do. First get a motorcycle (cars don't work). Then ride up the stairs fast with the motorcycle and before you enter the doors get off it and go inside, there you will find a motorcycle to drive in the mansion.
While flying the helicopter, if you press forward the nose of the helicopter will go down. If you let it go down far enough so you don't get to low or crash then you will fly forward and up at the same time at a pretty fast rate. Now if you gently push forward while flying the nose of the choper will go down a little bit and you will go faster while decreasing very very slowly in altitude.
Press the L3 button to raise and lower the vehicle and use the right analog stick to rock the car the direction you steer it.
After buying the Car Showroom there are garages below it. There is a list of vehicles, if you deliver all of list you get a reward car. I am listing the list and rewards of delivering these cars:
List 1 landstalker Idaho Esperanto Stallion Rancher Blista Compact Reward Car:Deluxo
List 3 Cheetah Infernus Banshee Phoenix Comet Stinger Reward Car:Sandking
Go To The Links Viet Heights Apartments. (you can Buy This as A "House") Go across the street to an arch. go through it and then make a right between some bushes. There should be a sparrow there!!!
To earn a little extra cash go to a cashier and have any gun with you and press r1. You should lock on to them if so then they will raise up there hands and drop cash. Pick up all the cash but while your doin this keeep your lock on them or if not sometimes they will press the alarm and you will automatically have two stars.
As in GTA3, equip the sniper rifle at night, and shoot at the moon to change it's size.
In GTA: Vice City you can steal different types of motorcycles. You can get a Harley Davidson Bike, a Moped, ect. the fastest one is the regular motorcycle. The Harley is the slowest of the three.
While in a car hit R2 or L2 and hit the shooting botton and you will drive by and shooting people on the street. NOTE:YOU CAN GET THE COPS ON YOU BY DOING THAT.
Right next to the entrance there is a car ramp. After you have bought the dealership you will be able to go down it. There are four garages and each fits to cars, there is also a personal Pay 'n spray but it still cost 100 dollars a spray. To the right of the car ramp (still under ground) there is abig garage that tells you a list of cars, if you complete the first list which is: Landstalker, Idaho, Esperanto, stallion, Rancher and blist compact, it will give you ten thousand dollars (or something like that) and up stairs there will be a really fast and cool car called a deluxo. The last prize is theres a icon that fills up to 1, 500 dollars cash. I hope these hints will help you, I spent two days driving around for the car dealership because there were no hints to finding it!
As you complete the game things will be added to your original safe house, for example after completing the Phill Cassidy missions, several barrels of moon shine appear at the hotel safehouse or after robbing the bank a duffel bag of money is laying on the bed.
If you are heading toward the Strip Club in Washington Beach,keep going. If you go to the 2nd store in the strip mall right across from it, you will see the words, "Rockstar Video Games" in the window. But pay no attention to that. Look below the word "Rockstar" and you will see characters from GTA3.
The phone numbers mentioned in Vice City radio commercials work in real life. "Try 1-866-PILLAGE for Thor's help-self line."
Stand on the VC TV helipad. Leap off the corner to the closest building(in the window) and you will fall in a small room with a real easter egg inside!
Enter the Malibu club. Take to the stage and you will encounter "The Village People." Chainsaw!
Get into a firetruck and go on a "Firefighter Mission" by pressing R3 (right analog stick on control and press down.) Complete 12 levels on the Firefighter and you'll see a message on the upperleft hand corner. It will say something like "Congratulations! You completed 12 Firefighter levels. You are now completely fireproof. So you cant die by fire anymore. Note: You can still die by exploding in a car.
To have an easier time controlling the Squallo, enable the "Slow motion" code. The speed will be decreased, but the handling of the Squallo remains the same. Since the speed is less, the handling would seem better, allowing you to complete the mission without problems. Also, after complete it for the first time, every consecutive time after that, fog will appear that gets worse with each attempt. Enable the "Normal weather" code to make it disappear.
Instead of chasing boats and a car, you can run over all the Cubans with the RC plane. Then just drop the bombs and blow up the boats.
Once accepting the mission, take Lance with you to the police station helipad in Downtown. There are stairs which lead to the helipad from ground level. Take the VCPD helicopter (Lance will get in with you), and fly it to the garage where you are supposed to trap the police officers to obtain your uniforms. Land as carefully as possible in the grassy open area just east of the garage. You will see the police car intended for you parked behind the wall in the same area. Trap two police officers to obtain their uniforms. Once you are donned in police gear, you can take any police vehicle to the mall, including the VCPD helicopter. Fly with Lance to the mall and land in the open area between the two south entrances. Once you detonate the bomb and exit the mall with Lance, enter the helicopter as soon as possible and fly over all the pursuit vehicles to the mansion. Land and run down with Lance in tow to the pink area to complete the mission. Note: Police will appear inside the mansion and on the roof; kill them off quickly to get to the checkpoint.
Drive fast towards the chef. Jump out of the car before you get too close. The car will then hit the chef and kill him. Pick up the cell phone. When the three chefs appear, they will protect you instead of trying to kill you. Another advantage is that Lance will follow you. When the car pulls up to the hotel at the end of the mission, Lance will get out with you, and the car will drive away by itself.
In this mission, you must fly a toy helicopter into a building and drop four bombs into specific points within the building and avoid getting beat or shot down in only seven minutes. There are construction workers and security guards with guns who will attack the toy helicopter throughout the building. The countdown however, does not start until you pick up the first bomb. The best way to begin the mission to find and kill the construction workers and security guards by flying into them with the propeller before you pick up any bombs. This will get them out of the way and you will get a feel for flying the helicopter and spotting where the targets are in the process. After you have killed them all, go back to get the bombs and start dropping them in the targets. Also avoid flying into anything -- with enough damage the helicopter will be totaled.
Go to the Malibu Club in a really fast car, such as an Inferno. Get the mission brief. Drive as fast as you can towards the junkyard. When around the corner from enable the "Rhino" code to spawn a tank. Drive towards the guards, blasting them with the tank's cannon. Once inside the junkyard, kill as many men as you can by running them over with the tank. Grab Lance and make your way back toward the tank. Then, take him to the hospital to complete the mission.
When you arrive at the driving range, go to the line of parked Caddys. Drive your Caddy straight to the edge of the river bank, behind them next to the telephone pole. Put the front wheels hanging over the edge. Next, one at a time, use the parked Caddys to ram them off the bank and into the river. The last one you use (the pink one) should be parked with the front wheels off the bank far enough where you cannot back it off. Be careful, or you will drive off the bank and die. Your last act should be to steal the last Caddy that has the guard in it. After you hijack the Caddy, the target will send his guards after you and attempt to run. He will get into the last available Caddy (the one parked at the edge of the bank). He will eventually fall off the bank, into the river, and drown. Your mission will be complete. Do not engage the guards -- as soon as the target gets into the Caddy, drive around. You can also ram his Caddy from behind to speed things up.
Use a car to run over the men with. This is much faster, and lowers your risk of dying.
Get some armor, a shotgun, and at least 50 rounds of ammunition for it. When the enemies appear, jump down from the roof with your shotgun. When you get down, start aiming and shooting. When the car blocks you, jump on the hood, aim, and shoot. When you get done with the first two cars, watch the lower left corner of the map. As the yellow dots approach, get ready to aim and take fire. When you get to the dirtbike part, have a gun since you can shoot ahead and not have to use the drive-by view. Get about five to ten feet away and start shooting. When he falls off his bike, you should also get off. After this, it should be easy to finish him off and to get the money back to Diaz. Note: This may not always work. To make things easier, jump off the roof just before the enemies get there.
After you complete the mission, the spotlight will have a picture of breasts with the word "Suxxx" under it to promote the new movie for Candy Suxxx.
No matter what condition your bike is in, ditch it as soon as the second set of stairs come down. You will find a new bike in seconds. Then, restart the run up the second steps.
Instead of using the motor bike to complete the entire mission, only use it for the checkpoints that are in the office building. Then, use a helicopter (either from the police station or the Hyman condo) and proceed to stop at the checkpoints on the roofs of the other buildings.
The key to this mission is to keep moving and to keep renewing hearts and armor. Before you start the mission, fill your condo garage with as many Zebra cabs and FBI cars as possible, all parked outwards for a quick getaway. One you start, run over the crates. Do not pick the weapons up at this time. Run down some people and get all four crates open before you start to pick them up. As soon as you hear the Faggios, get in the car and run. The first two crates are roughly at the Pay 'N' Spray north of Cherry Pickers. You need to go into the Pay 'N' Spray every time you have a wheel shot out, coming back out of it at speed. Keep picking off Faggio riders and the other drivers as often as possible. Do not pick up the spilled crates until as late as possible. If you are chasing or being chased near the condo, drive in as soon as you are damaged. Pick up a new car, and keep swapping. Do not forget the hearts at the hospital and to buy armor at Ammu-Nation. You can even use a helicopter to get hearts from your mansion at Starfish Island.
When you get your gun and Lance shows up, get a motorcycle and he will also get on. Get to the ramp that goes over bridge near the Malibu Club. Get as far as possible from the ramp then speed towards it as fast as possible. Either lean forward or lean back when you hit the ramp. You should either do a backflip or frontflip. Lance should go flying almost halfway down the street then slide almost the rest of the way. It may be more effective to enable the "Faster game play" code.
While doing the Gun Runner mission, other people will be shooting you (usually riding Faggios). If you kill them, you will get a $100 bonus.
Be on guard for cops heading up towards the safe. Make sure you keep your armor and your health filled. There should be armor in the room to the right of the manager. You should have plenty of time to enter codes if desired. When you leave Cam for the second time to check on the people with Phil, somebody trips the alarm. Do not panic. Enable the "Lower wanted level" code. While you are upstairs, go on the opposite side of the railing. Take out the sniper rifle, take aim, and shoot everyone in the room, starting with the three guards. When you get ready to leave, the Feds will drop teargas and drop in from the ceiling. Kill them all. Before you step on the pink circle to leave, enable the "Lower wanted level" code again. There are still cops out front, but ignore them. Once you are outside behind the tree, exit and walk away down the alley. Steal a car with four doors and only a driver. Then, take your gang to the hideout.
Get a helicopter and fly on top of the Ammu- Nation in Downtown. Use your sniper rifle to pick off the gang members one by one down below. Next, grab the Angel and go right to the alleyway that is blocked off. The south side is blocked by a gate, and the north side has a ramp of stairs. Gun it and fly off the ramp, out of the alley, and on to the main street. From here it is easy. Just avoid the chasing gangsters and return the bike.
It is a very good idea to have an ample supply of either Python or Spaz Shotgun ammunition for this mission. You will start out in your office. Run out of your office and stand at the top of the staircase. Use auto-aim to target and kill the seemingly endless amounts of gangsters that enter the building. After dispatching quite a few of these Mafia members, Lance will appear near the entrance to the roof. Run after him. He will appear in the hallway as you turn -- shoot him. When you reach the roof, run up to the helipad area. Shoot down the numerous gangsters. If you lose health, locate the health behind the helicopter. There is also an adrenaline pill on the roof. The best strategy to kill Lance and his friends is to use a gun such as the Python or MP5 (something you can sprint with while holding), fire, then run away. After killing Lance, run back downstairs and prepare for Sonny. He will have a few stronger gangsters with him. Get off a few shots, then run to the side of the upstairs with the windows. Since they cannot shoot through the floor (they should be directly underneath you) shoot who you can, and when you feel ready, run back around to the front of your office and fire off more rounds. Repeat this strategy, using the health in the den when needed.
Bring a helicopter before you start the mission at the phone. Start the mission and use the helicopter to go to the top of Cherry Poppers, instead of getting up there on foot. You will avoid most of the men that would have shot you. Once at the top, land the helicopter, shoot the few men there, get the briefcase, then fly the helicopter to the airport. Do not worry if they shoot your helicopter on fire, since there is another one on top of Cherry Poppers. Once you take the briefcase to the airport, the mission is over.
When you are exiting after detonating the bombs, do not bother approaching the gate. Nothing can stop this gate from closing, and nothing will open it. Turn to your right when exiting. In the right hand corner, you will find a set of stairs. Use them to run up and onto a building. Kill all the enemies before detonating any bombs. You can also enable the "Slow motion", "Weapons", and "Armor" codes. Set the bomb on the top floor first, then the two on the bottom floor. Run quickly to the exit. Even shoot the Cubans if they get in your way. Once near the exit, turn right, then right again up the stairs and over the roof.
Buy the Sunshine Auto Car Showroom located just east of Escobar International Airport for $50,000. Go down to the lower garages and locate the dry erase board with a list of cars on the wall. Steal all the cars on the list and bring them to this garage. When this is done, the business will begin making money for you. Each time a list is completed, the business will make more money and a new car for the showroom will be unlocked. The maximum amount you can make per day is $9,000 total ($1,500 per car list). Note: You will also get a free Pay 'N' Spray.
Buy Kaufman Cab at the north end of Little Haiti for $40,000. Three missions will become unlocked. Get in a Kaufman Cab and complete all three missions. After this, the business will begin making money for you. The maximum amount you can make per day is $5,000.
Buy the Malibu Club located east of Leaf Links for $120,000. Complete the four missions that are now unlocked and the business will begin making money for you. The maximum amount you can make per day is $10,000.
In the final Kaufman Cab Company mission where you are tricked into entering a demolition derby with a group of other cabs at Viceport, it is a good idea to get the rocket launcher from the nearby swimming pool before you park your cab in the lot. When you fight the Zebra cab, your taxi will probably get very smashed up. Kill the Zebra cab with rockets. He is usually not fast enough to run you down if you are on foot.
It is easier to board the charter boat if you first buy a sniper rifle and take out the guards standing on deck. To be more thorough, you can snipe from land on one side of the boat and from water on the other side.
Use a motorcycle for this mission. Move up the left side of the convoy, pull in front of the thing you want to steal then stop and get off the bike. Before anyone can react, hop into the door on the left side and pull away.
At the shooting range when you need Phil, enable the "Slow motion" code to make it easier. Note: The crosshairs moves at normal speed.
When you aim at Phil Cassidy's shooting range targets, they are characters from Grand Theft Auto 3 such as Maria and Salvatore.
Shoot the first and second targets until there is only one piece left in each target. Not only will you be free to shoot up the last target (which gives you the most points), you do not have to worry about the other targets getting in your way. This allows you to score a lot of points in the first round, which means you do not have to be that accurate in the following two rounds.
Buy the Boatyard in Vice Port for $10,000. Get in one of the boats and start the Checkpoint Charlie mission. Take the boat through all the checkpoints within the allotted time. After this, the Boatyard will begin making money for you. Repeat the mission to increase the amount of money that it brings in. The maximum amount you can make per day is $2,000 to begin with. This number increases each time the Checkpoint Charlie is completed. You can also get free boats.
Go to Hyman Memorial Stadium in Downtown for three missions. One is a race car mission, the second is a dirt bike checkpoint mission, and the third is a demolition derby mission. You have to read the billboard to see which event is being held for which night. Enter through the center doors at the top of the stairs. The doors will only open at 20:00.
Start the mission by pressing R3 in the Hunter. Do the levels as usual, and when you get a three or four star wanted level, go to the Pay 'N' Spray in Little Haiti. Get in a civilian car and get it re-sprayed. Then, go back in the Hunter and you will have no wanted level.
Instead of trying to ram the target and thus destroying your car as well, just drive alongside them and unload clips from your Uzi. When the car begins to flame, pull away. The driver might get out, and if the explosion does not kill them, your bumper can.
After completing the Vercetti missions at the Vecetti Estate, a money symbol will appear on your front porch. Walk into it and collect however much money is labeled at the top of the spinning symbol. This is how you collect your pay for owned businesses.
While you are in a car, go to the bridge next to the other big bridge. It is next to the bushes. Get out of your car and walk up the hill to one end of the bridge. Try to jump on the bridge. It will require a few attempts, but you will get while having all your the current weapons (go to the pink marker). Then, blast the guards and continue the mission.
In the mission when you are racing Hilary, just stay an his tail and he may spin out.
When doing the Cherry Popper drug deals, it is easier to just go to the beaches and sell. Once one star is achieved, simply drive around until it disappears. The bonus to doing it this way is that you will always have plenty of customers, and no cop cars. The only downside is that the ice-cream truck moves very slow. However, you can easily outrun any on foot cops. Try this to make 100 sales easily.
Buy the Pole Position Strip Club located just west of the Ocean View Hotel for $30,000. Enter the hallway in the back of the building and go in the first door on the left for a private dance. You will begin spending money on her. Get to $600 and the business will begin making money for you. Also, at this point you can go all the way to the back of the hall and go through the last door on the right to see a private pole dance. The maximum amount you can make per day is $4,000.
Get a motorcycle, preferably a PCJ 600. Make sure you have a sub-machine gun to do drive-bys with, and a Ruger or M4 is recommended. With the bike, enter the mall. Do drive-bys on all the stores that are marked on the bottom. It should not take that long as you have the bike to get around the mall quickly. For the top, get off your bike, run up there, and use your Ruger or M4 to take out those stores. You do not need to have an assault rifle, but it does make it slightly easier. If the cops are giving you trouble, just shoot them. You will not retain your wanted level after the mission is completed.
After completing the Rub Out mission, Diaz's estate will become yours. Complete all of the missions for the estate. When that is done, enter the house and go up the stairs. Enter the room and follow it to another set of stairs. Keep going up and you will eventually reach the top. Go up the "ramp" to get the helicopter.
After finishing the Rub Out mission, Diaz's estate will be yours and be called Vercetti's Estate.
Go to Ammu-Nation and get a lot of rounds for an Uzi-type gun, only one round for a shotgun-type gun, and body armor. Go to Diaz's Mansion and shoot all the gang members using the Uzi or another type of machine gun. It is much easier then using the Ruger. When shooting the gang members press R1 to lock on the target. If you do not kill him on the first shot, Lance will probably get him. When you get to Diaz, use the shotgun, lock on the target with R1, and keep shooting him. It will probably require four or five shots; do not stop shooting.
Enable the "Dodo car" or "Better driving skills" code, as well as the "Car floats on water" code before mission starts. After you begin driving the car, go straight until just before you get to the water. Jump or fly over the rail onto the water then drive until the bomb gets defused without worrying about obstacles or other drivers.
Catching the killer with the Love Fist Limo is almost impossible. To make this simple, pick up the mission from the studio, then drive a fast car to the signing area. Run back to the studio and get the limo. Drive the limo to the signing area. When the killer reveals himself, hop out of the limo and chase him down using the fast car.
Go to Ammu-Nation in Downtown before you start the mission and buy three shotgun rounds. Start the mission. Do not go on a bike. Just shoot people with your shotgun. When the police arrive, shoot them and their cars. Shoot everything in sight to fill the meter before time runs out.
You can actually take more than just three photos during the mission. You can take up to twelve, but it is just the three you get of Alex Shrub that matter.
Buy the Cherry Popper Ice Cream Factory located between Little Havana and Little Haiti (almost directly across from the bridge to Starfish Island) for $20,000. Drive Mr. Whoopee and get 50 buyers in a single run. You cannot leave the truck or get arrested or killed. After this, the business will begin making money for you. The maximum amount you can make per day is $3,000.
Buy the InterGlobal Films Studio on Prawn Island for $60,000. Complete the four missions related to the studio that are now unlocked in front of Hanger "D" and the business will begin making money for you. The maximum amount you can make per day is $7,000.
Hidden packages are not at all times reachable by foot. Sometimes hidden packages are only reachable by helicopters and boats. So don't think you can earn all hidden packages travelling on foot.
Make sure you have the police clothes. Go to the army base only at night and like magic it will be there.
After purchasing the IceCream distribution you must make as much deals as possible to collect income. The best place to make as many deal w/little or no cops bothering you will be the boat yard. There you will find a lot of people walking around and if you do have any incident w/the cops you have a pay and spray near by.
After you have defeated all the regular missions, and completed the assets for properties you can make money off, go to the police station on the first city and go inside, once inside turn left and go into the lockeroom. There may be a policeman in there, if so kill him (the alarm will be going off), in the back left corner there is a police uniform, walk through it to put it on. Once the uniform is on you can walk around inside the military base and the army men wont kill you (don't kill them either.) If you go in the front entrance, first smash trough the gate with a car, get out and on the far left there is a stair case that goes up on top of the first building, go up them, run straight until you run into the building, then turn right, there is a narrow walkway right on the edge of the building, walk down it, it leads to some stairs(but don't fall off.) Go down the stairs and walk straight until you hit the fence, turn left and run down that way, somewhere along there is a door way in the fence, go through it, you should now be standing in front of an obstacle coarse. Turn left and run straight to the fence, and then run down the fence line, behind some buildings, there is a stairway that leads over the wall and right before that is another opening in the fence, go through that one as well. Once through run all the way down the fence line and toward the end is the "Ultimate Secrete Weapon" looks like a Comanche to me. When you get in a wanted star may come on, if so don't worry, the guards only attack when there's 6 wanted stars(when Tommy has the police uniform on.) "R1" =chain gun, "O" = rockets. Alternatively you could just fly there, in a helicopter and land next to it, it may not be there the first time, if not do a loop around the airport and come back and it should be there, either way make sure Tommy is wearing the police uniform.
After you get your mansion on Starfish Island you get a garage with the house. You only can put two vehicles on it, but if you put two in there get another, take it the garage, drive right up to as close as you can get. Get out walk up to it until it opens. Jump back in you vehicle and drive in. You have to do it fast but I have 3 vehicles in mine. Don't give up, in makes in a lot easy to get as motorcycle if you won't instead of looking for one. Good Luck!!!
Ok, first you must go get the Hunter,(If you don't have 100 hidden packages, too bad)then fly around look for that DoDo that has a banner on the back of it. Then shoot rockets at it. If you hit, it will make either 2 or 3 explosions and the last one is like the explosion from GTA:3 when you blow up the Triad Factory with the Trashmaster. Once you blow it up, the banner should just sit up there. Sometimes it will be curved downward in different directions.
You can shoot straight in front of you while riding motorcycles! Just push "O". Don't push anything else!! You can steer just fine. It works great with the biker missions! When you first start the race, they take off before you. But now you can blow their tires and there is no way they can win!
To unlock the arena games you have to go to the memprial stadium between 20:00-23:59 and youll play one of the 3 games.
I have heard that people are having problems with the hookers. The Hookers will only get in your car in the early mourning while it is still dark. Watch out if a cop sees you he will come after you and you may not pick her up. After you pick her up there's only one place i know it will work. Go to Phil Cassady ( the big P ) and park in front of the shed with the Hummer in it. Don't do this if you have 150 health from the pizza missions your health will lower to 125. After your done get out and shoot her to get yout money back.
When you do the Malibu Mission The Driver when racing Hilary try your best to keep up with him but dont pass him. When passing the last checkpiont in the mission make sure you are behind and that you can see him on the screen and when the mission is over the Sabre Turbo should still be there after the mission and Hilary should not be in the car. Steal the car and take it to one of your garages and store it in the garage and save the game and you will now have a BP/EP/FP Sabre Turbo.
You will need a sports bike or a dirt bike for this one. When riding either of the bikes, gain some speed press and hold the hand brake (R1) the brake (square) and the up arrow at the same time to preform a stoppie. The bike will lean forward on it's front wheel while you are stopping. The faster you are going the farther you wil travel and the more $$$$ you will receive.
To kill people really easily while they're driving...... Here's what you have to do. Get one of the sniper rifles and stand in the road or on the sidewalk and wait for a car or motorcycle to drive by, take aim at the driver or maybe a passenger and fire! If they were in a car their head will blow off and they will fall out of the car. this is especially useful when your enemy is driving by you.
Okay, if you want to have some fun on your new, shiny, stolen motorcycle then go down to Leaf Links golf course with your bike. Go up the driveway and position yourself on the bike faceing the entrance to leaf links. Accelerate and go into the golfcourse on your bike. (you will have to leave your weapons and the two gaurds will chase you on foot, but have agood time) Now you can play through the 18 hole much faster:) Anyway just cruise around running over innocent old golfers and i gaurantee you'll want to come back for more!
After you complete all of the Kaufman Cab missions there will be a new cab parked in Kaufman Cabs. It is a Zebra Cab and it has a zebra paint jod and it is as fast as a police car. Press R3 to start the Taxi Driver missions.
Go to Phil Cassiddy's trailer, and in the garage you will find a bad ass hummer!
The Cuban Hermes has a flame paint job and when you accelerate there is flames coming from the wheels.
After you complete list 4 at the Showroom you get a reward car. The reward car is a Hotring Racer.
List 2 Sabre Virgo Sentinel Stretch Washington Admiral Reward Car:Sabre Turbo
List 4 Voodoo Cuban Hermes Caddy Baggage Handler Mr.Whoopee Pizza Boy
Steal a bus and find a bus stop. The bus stops are marked with a thin blue sign on the sidewalk. They can be hard to see when going too fast so you may want to take it slow. You earn $5 per person that gets on the bus. I don't think the bus ever fills up and no one ever gets off.
Whenever you are riding a motorcycle press up lightly (pressure sensitive) to lower your head and make your motorcycle accelerate faster and have a higher top end speed. This works on all two-wheeled vehicles.
Complete level twelve of the Vigilante mission and you will have a max body armor of 150. Using the "hunter" helicopter makes this goal much easier to obtain.
Alright, so you probably have a Colt Python and/ or a shotgun in your arsenal. I bet you're just dying to find a sweeter way to kill baddies (or normal citizens) faster with these weapons. Well, here's a tip. Arm the Python, Shotgun or Spaz Shotgun (not stubby, it wont work as well as it should), and aim it at someone. As soon as you fire, hit the L2 or R2 to change the aim to another person. Tommy will shoot the next person and wont bother to pump it or something. Rinse and Repeat, but keep in mind if there's no one else nearby, he's not gonna fire. With a python, you can take out 6 people in a little less than a second! Given of course he has a full clip and the people are nearby.
As long as you have a garage. You can store up to five different motorcycles in it. You pull up to the door get off motorcycle and the door opens. Jump back on motorcycle and pull it in.
The last mission that is ever avalible at Versatti's mansion (after you take it from Diaz) called "Protect the Valt" or something like that anyway appears to be impossible. It's not, when you first start out and have to kill Lance don't just run to him and start shooting, you WILL die. Instead run back behind you into the room and start picking them off as they come. Now, the guys will never stop coming though, so you have to have a good sense of how many guys you can take on at once and how fast your reaction time is. The guys will reappear at the door every 10-15 seconds so be quick but thorough. Then start running after Lance, but be on that watch there atleast 20 guys on the way to the roof. Now on the roof there are guys and you are behind barrels. It is impossible to kill Lance with bullets, so bust out a rocket launcher and kill him (you can find one in the pool of the orangish hotel building near the airport and around the corner from the auto car garage/races place. When you are finished then go back to the main room of your estate and kill the htree guys that the little movie show you walkin in. once again kill them with the rocket launcher. And after that problem solved and you get $30,000.
Steal a Bus and stop at every bus stop to earn a Bonus of $5.
Purchase the Pole Position Club in Washington Beach for 30,000. Then go inside it. Explore the rooms. Then go to the back of the club. There wil be an exotic dancer in there waiting for you! You do pay like 5 dollars for 10 seconds or so. You can't really see anything besides a thong when you see the back view.
Well first of all you have to buy the car showroom in Little Havana or wherever it is (for 50 grand, sounds steep but its really not.) Then go down the curvy road at the side of the showcase, and pick any race you wish, but do the last endurance one if you would like 40 grand. (entrance 10 grand) It will say get a car and go to the starting line, Don't. Instead go to the Hooker Hotel up the road shortly and pick up the rocket launcher behind it.Go to the starting line and shoot right by the cars. They will blow up... You might have to shoot 2 times though. Then all cars will be destroyed and you can go for a joyride if you want through the checkpoints as slow as you want even on a faggio, You can keep entering the race over and over doing the same thing, getting a mess load of cash to buy other missions and safehouses. It is very easy if you do this, instead of trying to compete in a hard race (or any of the races) for the cash.
First when you are able to purchase the Pole Position club, do so. Then go inside, be sure to explore every inch of the place, every room, and opening. Second, go to Howlin Pete's Emporium, and shoot out the windows. Sometimes there will be a PCJ-600 in one of them.
Look aroun the area with a helicopter by links view heights apartment. You should find somewhere a sparrow helicopter. Use the sparrow to fly around the malibu Club, you will find a couple of rooftop penthouses, when you're done with that go inside the Malibu club, after you are able to purchase it, and use a regular sniper to zoom in on the bartender, you must be very close to notice this.
To get the angel go to the place where you had to race the bikers, and there should be a harley in front of the bar, get on, and press either L2, or R2. you should see stars and stripes decals.
Steal a cab and press R3 to start the taxi missions. Carry 100 passengers to get hydraulics on all taxi-class vehicles.
Steal an ambulance and press R3 to start the paramedic missions. Get to level 12 to have unlimited sprint/stamina.
Go behind the pizza restaurant near the beach and steal the pizza delivery moped and press R3 to start the pizza missions. Successfully deliver 55 consecutive pizzas to increase your maximum health from 100 to 150.
Steal a fire truck and press R3 to start the firefighter missions. Press Circle to use the firehose to put out burning cars. Get to level 12 to become fireproof while on foot.
Like in GTA 3, if you pull up to a hooker in a car, they will get in your car and give you health. As soon as you get the maxiumum health kill the hooker and get your money back.
Are you having trouble getting some unique jumps? Maybe your car doesnt have enough room to accelerate in. So you should use a pjc 600, they have the best acceleration. This leads to getting up to speeds quicker than any other cars. Also going off small jumps with narrow takeoffs (like a stair case) are hard to get up because a car sometimes doesnt fit. This is when the pjc 600 comes in handy too. It's easy to fit on smaller jumps.
This is for the people who want more than 1 car in a garage. First if you have a car (or other) in the garage then bring a car or a moter cycle ect. Then put your car in front of the garage door then get out and let the door open and then dive in the garage (you have to be fast for it to work) and now you have more than 1 car in the garage! :)the cars will stay in there unless you put to many in there.
I managed to amass the 100 packages today. The ultimate vehicle is called the Hunter and it is the Apache attack helicopter that goes after you during the last mission for the Colonel. It fires two rockets at once with infinite ammo. As far as I can tell it is not bulletproof but it is armored. And it sounds awesome! Enjoy!
Go to Vice Point, locate the Standing Vice Point building (near the beach). Drive along the sides of the building, located across the street from the makeshift ramp. You will find the PCJ 600 Motorocycle here and be able to try the missions. If you drive around for awhile and return to the same spot where you found the bike, sometimes different color PCJ 600's will appear.
Near the North Point Mall (across the street and to the North) you can purchase a home for only $2500 which can act as a convenient Save Point.
Near the North Point Mall, you will find a cop who is chasing a gang member. If you run after them, and punch out the gang member you will earn $50 per punch. Just use fists (no weapons or the cop will pursue you) and don't hit the cop.
Using the Dodo code, find a fast sports car and look for the blocked bridge to Downtown. Get up enough acceleration and fly over the obstruction to access the other area.
If you have to exit your vehicle quickly press the Y button while driving. Tommy will be thrown from the vehicle.
While riding a motorcycle, press the Down direction twice to do a wheelie. To stand while on a motorcycle, press the Up direction twice.
Complete level 10 in pizza delivery to unlock max health of 150hp. Each time you pick up a health icon it will fill up your health to a max of 150hp.
You can shootout tires using te sniper rifles to make the car more unstable for the drivers.
If you walk up to a motorcycle that's driving by you can drop-kick the rider off.
There might be buildings that you can't go into from the front door, but I saw a screen shot with a flying helicopter, and on one of the buildings there were stairs, and a helicopter on the roof. So want I'm trying to say is, shearch on top of buildings for hidden places, not just on the ground.
