Idle ScreensaverDo not move CJ for 2-3 minutes. The display will be removed and the camera will start to follow and zoom into any activity going on (ie. Pursuits, fights, people talking).
Change the size of the moonShoot the moon with the sniper rifle and it will grow until it reaches a certain size when he will shrink when you shoot it again.
Civilian LemmingsGo to the gym in Las Venturas, and through the bomb garage next to it. Stand in that alley and look at the building across the street to your right -- and you'll see people jumping and walking off the roof. It will only happen if you stand in that alley and watch it from there. It's pretty much a Lemmings Easter Egg since Rockstar North made Lemmings (the company was known as DMA then)
Funny License PlatesIf you import a car at the docks, most but not all cars have plates that differ from normal ones. One says "our fergie", or "disco stu", and a really special one says "ea sucks". Try it out.
Jesus SavesIn Los Santos there is a wall painting with a heart, Mary and an angel on it and it says: Jesus Saves. In GTA 1 and 2 on the buildings where you saved it said the same thing.
Gant bridge easter eggGet a jetpack and fly to the top of the gant bridge. At the top is a sign saying: "There are no easter eggs up here. Go away."
CJ SingsIf you leave the game on and don't do anything CJ will sing songs heard on the radio. The songs you will most likely hear CJ sing is the songs on your favorite radio station.
Sex Toy WeaponIn Los Santos, go inside any police station and go into the shower room. Inside you will find a purple sex toy you can use as a very powerful weapon.
Infinite PhotosFirst, save your game (with a camera). Now, press L1 to take pictures of any photos you want (save it in your gallery), until you're done photographing. When you are, reset the console. The photos you have taken will still be in your gallery, only you won't have lost any film!
Fast and Easy way to upgrade weapon skillsTake the gun you want to be upgraded and aim it at a tire of any vechicle. Then just keep firing and your skill builds up quick.
Use the Vortex as a SubmarineUse the Vortex between El Quebrados and the abandoned airfield to take the small unique jump ramp that's on the back of the small shack it's parked next to. When you land in the water, the unique jump slow-motion cinema should keep going, with the camera fixed in one spot. Drive way out into the reservoir, and towards the dam, to the left of the camera's view. You'll disappear from view, but keep going. Eventually you'll run into the side of the dam and the cinema will end, leaving you under water and able to steer the Vortex like a submarine, without draining lung capacity or anything, as if you weren't underwater at all.
Chilliad Challenge easy win alternative wayAnother way to easily complete every race in the Chilliad Challengeis quite simple, throw a grenade at your opponent(s) and they will be eliminated from the race. Normally, using a weapon will get you disqualified, but using a grenade is fine by the games standards, and this method is a lot less cheap than the other one for this challenge, and works just as effectively.
Get No Stars While Blowing Up VehiclesIn a helicopter you won't get any stars if you use the chaingun for blowing up cars instead of the rockets. Even if they're right behind the guy you're shooting. As long as you don't kill any pedestrians or hit a cop car with a stray bullet.
No Timer on Quarry MissionOn the mission where you have to steal dynamite for a Wuzie mission you normally have a timer but if you go to the center of the construction site there is a grey stage with a person on it and the dynamite plunger right in front of him. If you kill him the timer will stop and you will have all of the time you need to complete this mission.
Easy High Score in the Arcade Game "They Crawled From Uranus"Once the game starts simply hold the joystick in one direction and the aliens' fire will never hit you. If you fire while doing this you can easily rack up points without ever dying.
Get out of debt trickTo get out of debt, no matter how far you are in, find a Unique Stunt Jump that you haven\'t been rewarded on yet. Hit the jump and you will be rewarded. However, this causes your money counter to reset to all zeroes.
Free ammo without pay purchaseEnter an ammunation shooting range and then press triangle to leave it. Gives full ammo to whatever gun you had equipped.
Get Twice the Amount of Progress With GirlfriendsYou have to have two controllers for this trick. When you go to your girlfriend's house you have a choice of either going on a two player free roam or going on a one player date. However, at the end of the one player date the two player icon (usually located by the door) will linger for a few seconds. You have to quickly go into the icon and activate it before it disappears. After that you can either end the free roam quickly or play around it doesn't matter. If your one player date was good and you gained progress you will gain even more progress from the free roam. However, if you had a bad date you lose more progress by activating it.
Infinite Spray PaintIn the earlier Sweet Mission "Tagging up Turf" you receive an infinite spray paint can. Since there is no timer on this mission, you can go around Los Santos with the FAQ tag map and spray all the tags without refilling the paint. Sweet!
Basketball CheatIf you have a wanted level and start to play basketball, you cannot be injured in any way.
Have your picture taken.To have a homie take your picture you need a gun and a camera. First Recruit a homie by targeting them with a gun and pressing up on the d-pad.
Then swith from a gun to the camera then walk near your recruited hommie. A message will appear on the screen. It will say to have your picture taken press l1.If you press l1 you will get to take a picture of yourself.
Early Bulletproof SavannaAfter you finish the 'High Stakes, Low-Rider' Mission, Cesar and his car stay at the finish line, doors locked. You can push the car to the nearest garage and the doors will become unlocked.
Headless CJFind a katana, then go into two player mode (by finding a icon that shows two red figures). Have player two chop your character's head off, and then when you go back into one-player mode CJ will have no head, and a nasty little blood effect.
Stop Rival Gangs from taking your TerritoriesTo stop a rival gang from taking your Territories, go to a safe house and save when ever the message "your area is under attack" appears on the screen. This will stop the attack and you get to keep you area. Warning: This may cause permanant negative effects to your game.
Cell Phone GunsWhen talking on the cellphone, press Triangle to end the conversation then quickly switch to the tec9, in your hands you will have a cellphone that shoots!
(deactivates when you enter a vehicle)
Super Bike JumpThis requires that you are have a gun that can be used while riding a bicycle. Immediately after you release the jump button (L1), tap circle. You should tap and release fast enough so the gun does not actually fire. You can jump over 2 stories high this way if you time it right.
Mountain Bike MorphingThis glitch is similar to the bike morph glitch in vice city, but it has a limited area that you can use it. In this area you can not fall off the bike, so you can do flips and all other kind of insane stunts. To do this glitch you need:1: Go to the top of Mount Chiliad
2: Get a Parachute (there’s one by the Journey on top of the Mountain)
3: Get on the mountain bike parked at the top of the mountain to start the mission “The Chiliad Challenge”
4: Use the ramp to the left of the beginning of the mission to fly of the mountain. Jump off in midair and open the parachute.If done correctly you should now be morphed with the bike (parachute still open) Now you can do insane stunts without falling of your bike.
Wide Screen ModeTo do this go to any airport, and book a flight to anywhere. When you see the plane appear on the runway put in the "destroy all vehicles" cheat. You will die, and be sent to the nearest hospital, but the screen will stay wide screen. Ya know black bars at the top, and bottom of the screen. Note:The only way to get out of the wide screen mode is to book another flight, and either jump out of the plane, continue to the other airport, or do a mission. Also you will not be able to see the map, health, or armor bars, weapon, money, wanted lvl. and you cannot pause, or save the game.
Underworld GatewaysYou'll need a jetpack to explore the Underworld.
Gate#1: Go to the sea's cliffs east of Los Venturas near Sobell Rail Yard. Now fly along the ledge near water level. There is a glitchy rock wall that you can pass through in one point. The wall twitches and shakes. When you get in, you may have to fly north a little before it lets you get under fully.Gate#2: It's in a corner wall of your safehouse in Vinewood, right by the pool. Just walk into the wall at different spots until you find it.
Free paint jobs at Loco Low co. and Wheel Arch AngelsTired of having the garages take away your beloved paint jobs on your cars? Don't want to spend $500 on a pretty flame paint job? Take your vehicle of choice to the Mod Shops across the state. When you are in the shop, highlight your painting of choice. Now press X and then Triangle VERY Quickly. Your car should have the paint job and you don't have to pay the money. However, this doesn't work with anything else. (colors, spoilers etc.) Also note that this will not fix up your car, and it will still be beat up.
No TrafficStart a new game and get to the OG Loc missions. At the beach mission, talk to the DJ and respond positively. When she says lets dance, instead of talking to her again just run away and there will be no cars on the road. Save game, so you can do this whenever you wantSome fun things to do with this glitch are to turn on "all people hate you" cheat for zombie style survival horror game, or turn up the wanted level for fastest police chases ever.
Refill NitroWhenever your nitro runs out, leave your vechicle and get back in. Your nitro will be replenished and you won't have to wait two minutes for it to refill.
Skip Songs on RadioYou can skip songs on the radio. Change to another station, then change back to the station playing the song you hate. As soon as the text at the top of the screen saying the name of the station turns yellow, before the station starts to play, change the station again. Change back to the original station, and it will have skipped whatever song it was playing.
Reload InstantlyWhen you need to reload quickly press L2 then R2 or vice versa just before CJ runs out of ammo and you will instantly reload.
Melting Mountain BikeGet a mountian bike, start to reverse by hold square, while holding it, start to tap X fast.
CJ's 3D frame will bend and stretch in crazy ways.
He'll even look like he's melting into the ground.Enjoy.
Infinite PhotosFirst you have to be in San Fierro and on the mission "Photo Opportunity". Fail the mission but don't reload. You will then have infinite "ammo" for your camera from then on.
Pay and Spray 2 carsGo to the pay and spray, then bring one car half way to keep the door from closing and then push it inside with another car. The two cars will be fixed for the price of one.
pay and spray glitchWhen you have a wanted level of any number of stars drive your car inside the pay and spray but before the door closes get out of the car. Aim your gun to look ahead and the cops, fbi, even the army will walk right by you even if u attck them while inside the pay and spray they wont see you. To get more cops to enter the area just exit the pay and spray and enter again. When u have grown tired of fighting just enter your car and the pay and spray door will close and then drive away with a clean slate!!!
Give homie your rideWhen a homie is with you and you have a 2 seated car or more. Get into the car and hold up just as your homie gets in. CJ will dismiss him but the homie will stay in the car a few seconds, then start driving away with it. Perfect for riding around in quads thorugh the countryside.
Easy cycling skillThis glitch allows you to upgrade you cycling skill faster. To exploit this glitch you first need to find a bike (no brainer), then you need to find a freight train and wait for it to stop. Do a bunny hop onto the back of the freight train so that you can ride it and stay on the bike. When the train starts to move again the bike will start to slide. At this point press the X button to pedal the bike. The bike should now be floating slightly above the train but will remain in place. You will notice that the wheels of the bike are moving at the some speed as the train even if you let go of the X button. This allows you to get cycling skills faster than with normal bike riding.
Note: CJ and the bike may become invisible while on the train. This is normal and will become visable again once you get off the train.
Transfender glitchFor this you need to have unlocked the transfender modding service. First find a car that you are willing to give up and can be modded by transfender. Take it to transfender go to the modding screen the press triangle to escape. Then before you do anything get out of the car and leave it there. There will be no traffic but if you get into a car traffic will come back, so to make it so you can get into a car you will need to kill yourself. Then you can get in and out of cars and there will be no traffic.To turn traffic back on simply take your car to transfender goto the modding screen escape the drive your car out.
Continue wearing gogglesIf you equip night vision goggles and then play an arcade game, when you quit the arcade game CJ will still be wearing them but the effect will be gone.
Tractor Tow SlingshotWhen using a tractor you can pickup other vehicles by lowering the lift using the R stick, you can use this to super slingshot yourself and a semi truck. First obtain a tractor then lower the lift and back up directly into a semi to tow it. Now start driving and swerve a bit from left to right this for some odd reason will launch your tractor and the semi at ludicrous speeds.
Girlfriend bonus glitchIf you have dated any one of the girlfrined who give you a bonus Such as Katie or Barbara and you restart the game you will still have the bonuses they give you even if your not dating them!!
Reveal complete San Andreas mapSimply get in a plane or helicopter, at any stage during the game, and fly outside the games boundaries. Once you reach water, fly towards the end of the map and simply keep going for a few minutues, and eventually the whole map of San Andreas is revealed! This is a very helpful glitch to exploit, as it doesn't affect anything negatively and the map will always be revealed; even after the game is saved!
Create A FountainGrab a boat and head out to some deep waters. Grab a satchel and throw it in the water. For some reason the 'splash' of the impact keeps on going so the water keeps spraying up.
Un-hitch trailer from big rigs using camera.If you have a trailer attached to the Tanker, Line Runner or Road Train, and you no longer want it, get a camera.
Go into the camera's 1st person view by holding R1, then press O. You will hear the trailer un-hitch. You need to be near the truck, and in an area open enough for the trailer to move away from the truck without hitting, or getting caught in a wall or other object.
It's a lot easier than losing the truck trying to jack knife the trailer off.
Ghost CountryThie glitch removes all peds (and cops if it's done right) and cars from the game. It's great to use to explore the territory. On the mission 'Small town bank' for Catalina, after you grab the bikes, you'll end up at the unique jump spot. Jump it, but miss and fall into the river below (It works if you don't get the slow animation for the jump too, but if you do get it, the cops shouldn't be on the map as well as the peds). After you land in the water, you'll see a floating trooper dead. I don't know why that's there. Swim to Fisher's lagoon and head back to Palomino Creek, were the bank is. Nothing will be there. No cars driving or spawned, and maybe no cops. The alarm at the bank will still be going off, and the only places you will find anyone will be in a store like The Well Stacked Pizza or Ammu-Nation. Entering then exiting those places will not bring back the peds or cars, and the only way to do that is to go and rescue Catalina from the police ambush and take her back to her hideout. However, you can do anything in between the glitch and rescuing her, as she will not be killed by the cops. Just spawn a jetpack or car with a cheat and explore. You can go cover tags and find the oysters and stuff like that without worry that cops or gangs will attack you. Occasionally a parked car will spawn, but they are kinda rare. When you go to rescue Catalina, shoot the surrounding cops with a rifle from far away, and you can pick them off easy, and no other ones will come. I don't know what happens if you die or kill Catalina, so you can try it if you like and tell me about it and I'll correct this.
Keep mask after the burglary missions are done.Start the burglary missions and park infront of a barber shop. Enter said shop and walk into the red circle to take a seat. Press X to view a haircut and wait until the time expires. Once the mission has ended press triangle and the barber will "put" the mask back on you. Now you may leave the barber shop with the mask on your face. Note: You may not change your clothes or die/ get busted the mask will disappear.
Chillad Challenge Infinite Money GlitchAs soon as the race starts ignore all over cyclists just head straight for the wooden ramp at the end of the mountain top when you get there try and pull the insaniest stunt possible. Just as your about to hit the floor you will respawn where you origanally started and still claim the stunt bonus award.
Weapons other than SMGs w/ two players in a vehicleFirst, find a two-player icon either around town or a a girlfriend's house. Now if you have a SMG, then waste the ammo for it. Pick a different weapon, like a shotgun or rifle. When the second person gets in the vehicle, input the weapon code that would give you the weapon you have selected. If done correctly, then the second player should be able to shoot whatever weapon was selected.
Taking Gang Territory: Fish In A BarrelWhile trying to take over gang territory, take one of the datable girls with you. Between waves of enemy gang members, if you give your girlfriend a gift or kiss them, the enemy gang members will freeze in place. They won't notice you around them, but if you throw a grenade at them or otherwise threaten them, they'll un-freeze. Grab a rocket launcher or molotov and you can take over territory really easy. Also, this would give you a chance to get the health and armor pickups in the area without being shot at.
Stop enemies from attacking your territoriesAt any time (until time runs out and they actually take over) get in either a cop car, firetruck, or ambulance and press R3 to start the secondary mission and then press it again to end the mission. This will make it so the attack has stopped, you keep your territory, and it will have no negative effect on your game (unlike the safe house glitch).
Barbara GlitchIf you go pick up Barbara for a date, she might say that you aren't fat enough to take her out. Instead of having to gain weight to be able to take her out, you can grab a car and a fellow gang member. To do this you have to have a Sadler and a Grove St. gang member in the car with you. When you do this, you go pick up Barbara for a date and she assumes you're heavy since the Sadler itself is heavy along with the gang member. You HAVE TO have the gang member with you, or else it will not work.
