1.   Version Updates

1.01; January 15th, 2008: Updated link information for images.

1.00; April 27th, 2006: Going through emails to add different things.  
Upgraded to completed version 1.0.  I'm happy with the contents to consider 
it complete, although I'll still add things or make changes if they come up.

0.98; April 25th, 2006: Minor changes.

0.97; March 24th, 2006: Finished up some updates I had planned on doing, 
mostly blue hell jumps.  Updated cheats section.

0.95; October 16th, 2005: Little restructuring of the FAQ to place things of 
higher importance higher, and slim down sections so it's easier to browse.

0.9; October 9th, 2005: Many new things added, including blue hell jumps, 
liberty city techniques, and hidden details.  Working through the massive 
backlog of emails, so expect some more quality updates.

0.8; August 24, 2005: With the XBox and PC versions out, Rockstar has made 
some changes that don't let some of the tricks or glitches work.  I'll be 
going through and trying to confirm which work with what version of the game. 
However, I don't have the XBox version so if you find any that aren't 
working, please email me and let me know.  The same goes for the PC version.  
Some of you have already started to email me about differences, which is 

0.7; January 23, 2005: Cheats added.

0.6; January 13, 2005: Fixed some random errors, still working through all 
submissions.  The main part of this update was the completion of the vanity 
plates section.  

0.5; December 20, 2004: Sections Added: Many.  Removed the Weldings and 
Weddings, which everyone knew worked except me.  Will be trying to work 
through submissions in the next update, as quite a few have been sitting for 
a few weeks.  This update was delayed because I was enjoying the hidden 
interiors universe glitch.  Lots of exploring done.
Sections Updated: Vanity Plates (tons of submissions), Manhunt Shock Trooper, 
Get Airplanes without Pilot License, many others.
This updates recommendation: Walk Underwater II, in the 7.A3 section.  It 
lets you collect oysters, underwater, with the jetpack.  No cheats at all!

0.4; November 30, 2004: Too many updates to list.  Reorganized, and lots of 
new finds.  Thanks to all the submissions, although I'm still working through 
most of them.  To come: Problematic Glitches section, Triple Insane Stunt 
Locations section.

0.3; November 18, 2004: Added many new glitches and secrets.  Added the 
entire Rare Vehicles section, and added the Unlockables section that explains 
each, and how to unlock the items in greater detail than before.  First 
version of the FAQ to be posted on websites.

0.2; November 6, 2004: FAQ updated with quite a few new secrets, almost 
doubled previous count.  Total count up to: 28 

0.1; November 2, 2004: FAQ first created.  Total secrets found: 15.

2.   Intro

This FAQ is simply a collection of all the hidden details, secrets, glitches, 
tricks, and any related matter from GTA: San Andreas.  I've been playing GTA 
for a while now, and have also run a site dedicated to the GTA series for a 
few years.  I enjoy just playing around in GTA, looking for glitches and 
secrets, more than I play missions.  

Please remember this FAQ is for things that have been found, only.  You won't 
find any rumours here.

I've tried to keep this FAQ clean and simple, so it's easier to look through.
I've also tried to keep it as spoiler free as possible, so you can look 
through this at any point in the game without giving anything away.  The 
biggest spoiler you'll find are simply character names.  If a spoiler is 
absolutely necessary, it'll be mentioned.

Luckily, I have a TV tuner card, so all the items listed in the FAQ that 
would benefit from a picture have a link to it.  Just copy/paste the URL into 
your address bar and go there. 

What this FAQ doesn't, and won't, have (so don't email me about them!): 
Rumours/Myths: Unless it is proven, they're all fake.  This includes all  
stuff like Bigfoot, Leatherface, etc.
Made-up missions: For obvious reasons.
Mission help: Things needed to do are summarized here, other FAQs can help 
you out if need be.

3.   Submit and Contact

If you know of a secret that is not listed here, please send an email to me 
at  Also, please try and be as specific as possible.  
You get full credit for your find.

Please use proper spelling and grammar when writing an email.  If I can't 
read it, I can't respond to it.

Be sure to include a username, so I can credit you appropriately.  If you 
don't leave a username, I'll just use the one in your email.

Keep in mind that your submissions may be reworded to properly fit the 
context it's being put in.

             -----------[4.A Rockstar and Other Games]---------- 

--- [Rockstar Gets Back at Driv3r] ---

Description: In the mission at Madd Dogg's mansion, you'll hear from a man 
that's playing a videogame, sitting by the television, say to himself: 'Yeah, 
look how this Tanner guy runs! He moves like his bowels have let go... This 
sucks. I mean, how could Refractions mess up so bad? Tanner, you suck ass!'  
Reflections is the real name of the company, but you can see how Refractions 
is similar.  Tanner is the name of the main character from Driv3r, in case 
you didn't know.  Driv3r had little Tommy Vercetti's with water wings because 
Tommy couldn't swim from GTA:VC, so Rockstar had to get them back somehow.  
Although this is a little more direct than Driv3r's approach ;)

--- [Rockstar Gets Back at True Crime] ---

Description: True Crime: Streets of L.A., was without a doubt based off the 
GTA series with it's free roam gameplay.  In an effort to make fun of the 
competition yet again, there's a billboard in San Andreas that says 'Get rid 
of old rubbish, fast!  True Grime: Street Cleaners'.  To get to the 
billboard, follow the train tracks from your house until you get to Unity 
Station.  It'll be at the beginning of the tunnel, directly above you.

The reason they've done this is because in True Crime, there were billboards 
that had a GTA style cartoon of a guy wearing a pink jockstrap.  Next to it 
read "JOCKSTRAP" in the same style as the Rockstar logo, as well as a J* 
beside to mock Rockstar's Logo, R*.

Here's another interesting detail that may be Rockstar's way of also 
insulting True Crime.  On the mission "Home Invasion" that you get from 
Ryder, during the cutscene right before you enter the house you are to rob, 
Ryder says "Yah, yah, we gotta do it ninja style!".  As you may or may not 
know, in "True Crime: Streets of LA" the main character Nick Kang says that 
same thing right as you start any of the sneaking missions.

--- [Vice City and Manhunt Action Figures] ---

Description: Head into Zero's store.  On the rack by the counter, and on the 
wall behind the counter, you'll find Tommy and Lance from Vice City, as well 
as two characters from Manhunt being sold as action figures.
Requirements: You'll have to own Zero's RCs Shop so you can enter the store.

--- [Vice City Maps] ---

Description: Go to Angel Pine, and find the Clucking Bell.  Right across the 
street, you'll see 3 trash cans.  Two of them have open tops.  Knock them 

over, and look inside.  You'll see a bunch of maps of Vice City.

--- [Vice City Boxart] ---

Description: Head to southern San Fierro, just north of Mount Chiliad, where 
you can see the 5 round towers.  The buildings to the west of them have a 
low-res version of the Vice City Boxart plastered all around the building's 
Found by: Josh M

Also, if you go to Denise's bedroom using the Hidden Interiors FAQ, then you 
can see her having a poster of Vice City's boxart above her bed.

--- [Max Pane] ---

Description: Head to Dillimore in the countryside, north of Los Santos.  Then 
at the gas station, look at the window.  It says "Max Pane Bulletproof 
Glass", a direct reference to Rockstar's shooter Max Payne, well-known for 
it's bullettime slow motion.  Note: you won't be able to read it that well on 
the PS2, it seems to be too low quality to make out.
Found by: jaymaster007 for the picture, many others

                 -----------[4.B Easter Eggs]---------- 

--- [Easter Eggs Here Sign] ---

Description: Fly to the northwest corner of the map, where there is the large 
red bridge (the Golden Gate Bridge) that connects San Fierro to Las Venturas.
Either get to the top of the bridge with a Jetpack or helicopter, and hover 
near the highest horizontal bar.  Look on the inside, east side to see a sign 
that says, 'There are no Easter Eggs up here.  Go away.'  This is an obvious 
play from Vice City, where there was an actual Easter egg hidden in an 
invisible wall.  Also, there was a similar sign in GTA3 that read, 'You 
weren't supposed to be able to get here'.
Requirements: You'll need to have San Fierro unlocked before being able to 
make it to the bridge.  
Found by: BHZD11

--- [Bodybags] ---

Description: To get to the place, you'll need to start out at the airplane 
graveyard in Las Venturas.  Head south from the savepoint, until you get to a 
road.  Follow this road west, until you see a snake farm on your side.  Go a 
little past this, then make a left off the road, and drive through the field 
between two large rocks.  If you look on your left once you go through 
between the two rocks, you should see a Bobcat beside a small hole in the 
ground.  Go up to the hole, and you'll see several body bags in the ground.  
The Bobcat parked there must have been used to place them in there!

--- [Shoot the Moon] ---

Description: Just like in the other GTA's, shooting the moon with a sniper 
rifle will make it get larger and larger, until it starts over at a smaller 
size again.  
Found by: Ultimate Goku

--- [Northstar Rock] ---

Description: Found on the east side of Los Santos, there is a large rock 
called Northstar Rock.  Switch around the syllables to get Rockstar North, 
the creators of the game.  There are rocks on the actual rock, but they don't 
appear to form anything special.

--- [Rockstar Constellation] ---

Description: Look in the night sky to see the Rockstar constellation.  This 
is also from Vice City.

--- [Vanity Plates] ---

Description: If you pay close attention, you'll see some cars have their own 
vanity plates.  Here's a list:

Note: As DMA Design started in Scotland, many references on the plates refer 
back to there.  Here's some explanations of plates written up by Alan R, as 
he says refer to the Glasgow Rangers football team:
'R4N G3RS' - Name of the team.
'GL4S G0W' - Where the team are from.
'AM0 RUS0' - Lorenzo Amaruso, outspoken defender, played 97-03.
' AMAT0 '  - Gabriele Amato, striker (forward) for Rangers 98-00.
' GA ZZA ' - Nickname of Paul Gascoigne, English International midfielder.    
'MC C01ST' - Ally McCoist, probably the best player Rangers have ever had.  
'ZID ANE ' - Zinedine Zidane, French international and captain of Real 
             Madrid, the Spanish "team of teams".  Argubaly the best 
             footballer ever.  But never actually played for Rangers, nor 
             does he have any connection to Scotland whatsoever, so I don't 
             know why he appears here.
Other plates relating to Scotland:
' ARRAN '  - Small island off the west coast of Scotland.
'BAW BAG ' - Literally 'ball bag', as in scrotum.  A common insult in 
'MR J0BBY' - 'jobby' is a common Scottish expression for a turd, as in "I 
             need a jobby."  It is seen as a more polite term though, think 
             of it as the Scottish version of 'poo'.  Parents will teach 
             their children to use 'jobby' rather than any other word.
'SM53 NUV' - could be a regular British license plate.  This would mean the 
             car was licensed in the east coast of Scotland in the latter 
             half of 2003.  NUV is just random letters, unique to every 
             license.  Whether this is the actual license plate of someone at 
             Rockstar, I don't know. 
On a side note, of Scotland related references, you know the two bridges 
between San Fierro and Las Venturas?  They are in fact direct copies of the 
Forth Road Bridge and Forth Rail bridge, which connect the city of Edinburgh 
to the north of Scotland.  Dundee, the city DMA/Rockstar were originally 
from, is also about 20 mins drive away from the north side of these bridges.

--- [Bridge Facts] ---

Description: Go to the northwest bridge between San Fierro and Las Venturas, 
the big red one that's modeled after the Golden Gate Bridge.  There's a small 
sign by the bridge that says:  
'Bridge Facts
length - 150.7 m
height - 60.3m above sea level 
16000 polygons inc. LODs 
600m draw distance 
11 textures 
Takes up a staggering 1.27mb of disc space'
To get there, drive from the northern end of the bridge towards the south.  
Take the first left, down a thin path and a few stairs.  Before you get to 
the ground level with the diner, the sign will be on your right.

--- [Police Brutality] ---

Description: Go the police station in Los Santos.  Now, head into the parking 
garage there, preferably with a police car (that way you don't get felony).  
Once inside, you'll see a pedestrian being beaten by a cop, with another cop 
watching in the corner. 

--- [Ghost Graveyard] ---

Description: Head to the graveyard in Los Santos.  If you look at the walls 
between 20:00 and 6:00, you'll see some graffiti.  However, during the 
daytime the graffiti mysteriously disappears!  One graffiti tag says 
"Families 4 Life".

                       -----[5.A1 Blue Hell Entrances]-----

Just a quick note on Blue Hell.  Originally coined from GTA3, where you could 
fall through the ground in some places, although it was mostly random.  
There, everything would be blue and fuzzy, and you'd be warped back on to 
land shortly.  There was actually a place where you could fly underground 
though, which was difficult to control.  Vice City had a few that you could 
fly into, which led people to search for more.  Now, in San Andreas, it is 
pretty much white under the world, but it's still called Blue Hell.  
Basically, it's when you fly under the world, and can see everything from 

About the Ghost World glitches: These are when the game loads an interior, 
and takes the world out of the games memory because you're inside a building.
However, if you can manage to get out of a building without the game knowing, 
the rest of the world remains invisible.  Buildings and cars are invisible 
(although you can still drive cars/bikes, it's just that you become invisible 
yourself).  This can be good for finding horseshoes though, because items are 
still visible.  Each Ghost World glitch is ranked based on their difficulty 
to get into or perform; some can be near impossible, some are incredibly 

About Interior Blue Hell glitches: These are just ways to see into blue hell, 
but not actually get into it.

--- [Ghost World I] ---

Difficulty: Incredibly Easy
Requires: Zero's missions complete
Cheats Required: None
Description: Go into Zero's RC Store and start the mission in the back, Beefy 
Baron.  Fly the plane straight to the west, and fly it into the ocean there.  
You'll see a mission failed screen, and you'll then start dropping from max 
height into the Ghost World.  Either open a parachute, or make sure you have 
full health to survive the drop.  By far the best way to get into the Ghost 
World, because you also end up dropping right beside your San Fierro garage, 
where you can try driving one of your cars while being invisible.

--- [Ghost World II] ---

Difficulty: Medium
Cheats Required: Jetpack
Description: Go to the Lil Probe Inn in Las Venturas, which is just southwest 
of the Restricted Area.  Once inside, jump towards the railing from the main 
floor, where the entrance is and the railing begins from the wall.  It may 
take a few tries, but continue pressing jump until CJ jumps while still on 
the railing.  This will make him pop up onto the ceiling of the Inn.  If you 
jump off the side with the floating pictures, you'll drop into blue hell and 
respawn again on the roof. However, jumping off the opposite side will put 
you back inside the Inn. While on the roof, you're going to want to use the 
Jetpack code (Left, Right, L1, L2, R1, R2, Up, Down, Left, Right). Fly a fair 
distance from the Probe Inn, and you'll find yourself hitting the bottom of 
the world if you try and fly up. Now, drop down, straight down, and you'll 
respawn on the ground above the underworld. You can go anywhere you'd like 

--- [Ghost World III] ---

Difficulty: Near Impossible
Cheats Required: None
Description: Head into any Burger Shot, and go behind the counter.  Jump onto 
the counter between the two workers, and eventually you should land on the 
counter.  You'll then fall through, and down into the Ghost World.  It'll 
take a LOT of tries to eventually get the jump to work though.  Several 
people have confirmed it, but I haven't been able to do it myself.

--- [Ghost World IV] ---

Difficulty: Easy
Cheats Required: None
Description: Go to the Pig Pen Strip Club in Los Santos, it's fairly straight 
north of Denise's home.  Go inside, and go the bar.  There, you'll see 
something that looks like a fridge.  First, jump on the counter, and then 
jump onto the top of the fridge.  It may take a few tries.  Once it works, 
you'll pop up onto the roof (like doing the Ghost World trick in the Lil 
Probe Inn), and you can then walk around up there.  You can jump off, and 
drop down to the ground.  Use a parachute or be at full health.  You can even 
get into the back room where the private strip takes place, which you can't 
normally access.

--- [Ghost World V] ---

Difficulty: Medium
Cheats Required: None
Description: Go the Atrium in Los Santos.  It's just southwest of the 
Mulholland Intersection, and 2 blocks to the east of the police impound lot.  
Find the entrance near the double escalators.  Make sure you have some sort 
of bike (either a motorcycle or bicycle).  Now, park the bike right against 
the door so that it's touching.  With CJ, hop off the bike, and go into the 
yellow marker.  Rapidly press triangle while he's entering the building.  If 
the bike was close enough against the door, it'll actually have the door 
still open.  By continuing to press triangle, CJ will then run out the door 
and hop on the bike.  You can also try getting him to run out himself, if you 
see the door's open.  The trick to getting this working is when the bike is 
parked outside, and when you hit triangle, you want CJ to enter the marker 
and also push the bike slightly forwards, to nudge it in the door.  It may 
take a few tries.

Description: Enter Caligula's Casino, in Las Venturas.  Now enter the main 
area, and head to the right side of the floor.  There's a circular room area, 
with two entrances.  Take the one on the left that leads down.  When you come 
to a spot with three choices to take, go to the one on the left.  You'll now 
be in a storage room.  Go up to the grating on the back wall, and keep 
jumping into it.  Once CJ looks like he's almost through, try crouching while 
holding forwards, then jumping again.  It may take a few tries, but once CJ 
is through you'll land on top of a room.  Take a look at Caligula's casino 
from the outside, then jump down to the ghost world!

Description: To do this, head to the northern safe house in Los Santos, 
located in Vinewood.  It's right above Madd Dogg's house.  Don't worry if you 
haven't purchased it yet, this glitch will still work.  Head around to the 
back, and go to the swimming pool.  Walk along the wall beside the pool, 
until you reach the corner.  Simply walk straight into the corner and you'll 
fall through into blue hell!  It'll take about 5 seconds of falling before 
you are warped onto the ground in front of the Vinewood sign, but you can get 
a good look at Los Santos from below while falling down.

Now, there is a part of this building that is solid.  Instead of walking 
straight into the corner, walk into the invisible wall a little to the right 
from the corner.  You'll be able to stand there without falling down.  Walk 
south inside the building, and the area inside has solid ground.  If you go 
in the northern direction, inside the building, don't go past the corner you 
entered or you'll fall through the ground again.
If you're really adventurous, try and fit in a car in the building.  I've 
driven a Taxi off and into Blue Hell, and when it warped me back up to land I 
got a Double Insane Stunt Bonus.  Bikes don't work, they always disappear 
when you land.  

Doing this with the Jetpack is absolutely crazy.  You can fly through the 
entire San Andreas map, and see everything from below.  If you'd like to get 
back up to the surface, just let yourself drop low and you'll warp back up 
onto land.  The only downside is when you come back up, you'll lose your 
Jetpack.  Have fun exploring!  You can watch a video of me flying with the 
jetpack in the underworld at  If

Description: This one is located in Las Venturas.  Locate the Sobell Rail 
Yard, which is on the east coast of Los Santos.  Head down into the water, on 
the other side of the cliff.  You should see a boat in the water near you, 
called the Jetmax.  Where the Jetmax is, jump back onto the cliff so you are 
walking along it, not swimming.  Continue walking north until you see that 
the part you are walking on is starting to end.  Now, push yourself left and 
into the ledge while you walk, until you start to go inside.  That part is 
solid, but if you want to jump down and swim in the water, continue to walk 
north until you fall down.  You can actually swim to the edge of the water, 
and then drop into blue hell before respawning on the road on top.  This can 
also be done with a Jetpack, if you'd like to fly around underneath.  The 
following picture shows me inside, and how far away it is from the parked 
Jetmax.  There's also a Jetmax that I drove to get to the spot.

anything you could normally do on land.

Description: Start up two player and find a motorcycle, the faster the

jetpack.  Let the player with the jetpack float up as high as possible, then 
hover in the same position.  Just stay up there really high, and don't move.  
For the person on the ground on the bike, accelerate as hard as possible in 
any direction.  Soon you'll notice there's a radius around the person in the 
jetpack, that will make your bike start floating up and off the ground.  This 
makes it really easy to get double insane stunts, and you can get really 
creative with this ability.  Try the huge jump in Arco del Oeste in the 
desert, it's pretty funny when you go off the cliff and then float back onto 
it!  Make sure you set the view to just the person on the bike for the best 
results.  Tip: to get a really good start speed, you'll have to back up until 
it warns you that the game will end.  Then you've hit the max distance and 
can go off any jump at almost full speed!

Description: To do this, head to the area marked on the first picture, which 
is a map.  Just north of the location, in the water, if you swim down you'll 
see some rocks and weeds.  Swim down to the large rock, and soon CJ will drop 
down and stand on the rock, with it looking like daylight around.  You can 
then run around underwater with no breath meter!

If you'd like, you can use a cheat to spawn a car, and drive around the ocean 
floor.  Don't drive off the map though, because once you get to the open 
ocean area, the floor disappears and you fall into blue hell, only to respawn 
on land.

Lastly, you can use a jetpack underwater with no cheats!  Just set the 
jetpack on the land near the water.  Equip a gun, and walk around in target 
mode (R1).  Walk into the jetpack, and then continue walking into the water 
while still targeting.  Now, swim down to the spot, and you'll drop with the

Works On:       PlayStation2 [Yes]      XBox [Sort Of]      PC [Sort Of]
Note: Many people on PC and XBox have reported problems of this not working 
to well, so you may need to fly further or get a mod.

Description: This is definitely one of the weirdest/coolest glitches in a GTA 
game.  You can see the results of this glitch at any time during the game 
by checking your stats page, but I'd recommend waiting until you can see 
gang areas on the map.  Now, hop in a Shamal (because it can autopilot), and 
fly into a corner of the map.  Tape down the X button for acceleration, and 
let the plane or boat go for at least 20 minutes.  After 20 minutes, check 
your stats page, and add up the total number of gang areas.  There should be 
more than what you started with.  If you want more areas, continue flying 
and just check your stats page to see how many you have.  Don't count on 
the map to show you where the new ones are, just the stats page.  After 
much testing, people have confirmed 3 hours of straight flying (this is 
in our time, 3 hours) to be the best amount of time.  Once you're 
satisfied, bail and drown yourself.  Seriously.  You can always fly back, but 
that's just a waste of time.

You'll end up back at a hospital.  Now, check your map.  You should see gang 
colours in areas you'd never expect.  Some appear in San Fierro, some all 
over Las Venturas, it seems to be purely random.  People that have had 100% 
territories controlled now had less than 50% after doing this glitch.  The 
maximum amount of new territories you can get is 178, so this will probably 
take the most time to fly.  After 1 hour of flying myself, I went up to 115 
territories.  If you'd like to have a further read, check out:

should be able to slowly descend until you hit an invisible surface.  This 
surface lasts a short distance away from the bridge, but you can run towards 
Las Venturas without falling off for about half the bridge.  If you're unsure 
where you can walk, just take out a gun and shoot the ground.  If you see a

Now, get off the bike by hitting triangle, and open your parachute.  After 
your drop a little bit, you'll be respawned on the top of the mountain.  The 
only difference is this time your parachute is still open!  You can now ride 
over the mountain and do insane stunts, because you won't fall off.  Also, if 
you'd like to ride wherever you want, finish the race and you can ride around 
being morphed to your bike.  The following picture shows me, after doing a

--- [Free Vigilante Levels] ---

Description: You can use this glitch all the way past level 12, to get the 
150% armour boost.  Firstly, get a police car and drive to a fast food place 
like Burger Shot or Clucking Bell.  Activate the R3 mission, and park your 
car so that when you leave the car you'll land exactly on the yellow entrance 
marker.  Exit the vehicle, and you'll be put inside.  Wait until you see the 
countdown to re-enter a police vehicle, and continue to wait until you see 
"Threat Eliminated".  
When there are more than one criminal, which you get in higher levels, 
you'll have to continue to enter and leave the building to get each of them.  
It should take 30 seconds to kill each criminal when you're inside, but if 
your countdown is nearing 0 you should go back out, and come back in again.  
Continue to do this until you pass level 12 and get your armour boost! 
Found by: Clapter

Note: The reason this works is because all interiors are in the sky.  The 
best guess is that the criminals are spawned at your height level in the 
restaurant, and it takes them roughly 30 seconds to drop down to the ground, 
flip, and die.

--- [Falling Peds] ---

Description: Head to the gym in the northern area of Las Venturas.  Go into 
the nearby alley, and stand right behind the back of the bomb shop.  Stand 
behind the wall in the alley, and look at the building in the north-east 
direction.  The peds spawn on the top of the building, and you can see them 
walk off and fall to the street.  You can run up to the building once you've 
seen a ped spawn, but you can't stand under the building and wait for them to 
fall on top of you.  Peds only spawn when they're a certain distance away 
from you, so stay in the alley and watch the falling peds from there.  The 
ped can be seen in the picture, on the front side of the building directly in 
front of where CJ is looking.  

Note: Some people have been emailing me saying this is actually some sort of

shorter two wheel bonus, inside the warehouse building.  You can use any 
vehicle for this, I just found the Forklift easier.

--- [Unlimited Time for Checkpoint Races] ---

Description: This same trick also worked in GTA3.  Start up a checkpoint 
race, such as the BMX one in Los Santos' skate park.  Let the timer run down 
until it's near 0.  As soon as it hits zero, drive through a checkpoint.  
You'll get the bonus time, but now the mission timer is gone and you can take 
as much time as you need.  It may take a few tries to get it to work, because 
if you go to slow through the checkpoint after the timer runs out, the 
mission ends.

--- [Unlimited Stoppie] ---

Description: Hop on a BMX bike, and make sure your cycling stats are maxed 
for this to work best.  Perform a wheelie, and just continue pushing forwards 
with the analog stick and holding the brake.  You can stay forwards for as 
long as you'd like.  Let go of forwards to drop back and end the stoppie

--- [Unlimited Flips and Rotation] ---

Description: Go to the I/E Crane in San Fierro, and bring a car with you.  
Get into the crane, and hook it up to the car.  Now, raise the car about CJ's 
height off the ground.  You want it to be as high as possible, but low enough 
so that CJ can still get in.  Once it's at a good height and your inside the 
car, you can move the car around in the air with the left analog stick.  
Perform as many rotations or flips as you'd like.  Once you want to stop, 
just hold the car forwards, or backwards, so one end touches the ground.  I 
got $1500, and a Double Insane Stunt bonus, for doing the following stunt:

--- [Light Speed Tractors] ---

Description: Hop on a Tractor, which can conveniently be found in the forest 
area of Los Santos.  Now, if you haven't noticed already, the Tractor has the 
same ability as the Tow Truck.  Use the right analog stick to control the 
back, and start looking for a large truck.  Anything large will do, such as a 
Linerunner, Journey, or Hot Dog Van (Note: Hot Dog Van works best).  Hook up 
the Tractor to the large vehicle, and don't worry if the other has a driver 
in it or not.  Start driving straight with it hooked on behind, and then make 
a sharp turn to one side.  The screen will blur, in a similar effect to NOS, 
and the Tractor will go flying along with whatever you were towing.  Most 
often, the vehicle you were towing will fall off and go rolling in the 
distance, so you may have to find another car to hook up again.  Just 
continue to turn sharply to either side to get the insane boost in the 
Tractor once you have another vehicle hooked up.

Someone really needs to try this, if you get the chance.  Take up a tractor 
to the top of Mount Chiliad, and you can use the Journey parked up there to 
tow.  If you can time your sharp turn right, you should be able to fly off 
the mountain at the speed of NOS, and go flying over San Andreas... please 
email me with your story if this works!

--- [Shamal Warp] ---

Description: First, find any sort of motorcycle and drive to any airport.  
Find a Shamal parked in the airport, and drive up to the side that you enter 
the plane (the plane's left).  Shoot out both your tires with any sort of 
gun, and drive straight towards the area where the wing meets the plane, at 
the front.  Position yourself at a 45 degree angle and start burning out 
(brake and gas).  Hit triangle, and CJ will jump off the bike on the right 
side and into the wing.  He'll then be warped onto the nearest highway.

Make sure that you're not too close to the wing, or CJ will simply jump off 
the bike on the left side, which does nothing.

--- [Inside Restricted Area] ---

Description: After you've completed the mission "Black Project", you 
technically can't get back inside the restricted area.  However, here's a 
method to do so.  Get to the restricted area with a jetpack in blue hell, 
using any of the blue hell jumps found in this guide.  Fly down and you'll 
see the long column where you first got the Jetpack.  Go under this, and then 
go straight down.  You'll end up respawning inside there with a new jetpack 
beside you.  You'll have 5 stars, but only county police show up so you 
shouldn't have a problem.  Have fun exploring, because there are quite a few 
guns in there, including the minigun and some armour.  You can't get out 
without dying, though.

Description: This one seems to happen a lot at the police parking lot in San 
Fierro.  It's located just before the area where the large grey bridge 
(beside the train track bridge) goes to Las Venturas.  You can also spot it 
because it has a helipad with a Maverick.  Head into the parking garage, and 
continue going through the parking lot to the back.  There are quite a few 
parked cars down there (mostly Police cars) except at the back, where there 
are a few random ones.  You'll see a Maverick spawn down there, but it always 
goes inside of another car.  You can push it yourself out of the other car, 
or just enter the vehicle and the Maverick will pop out.  Here are a few

--- [Borrow Money from Casino] ---

Description: If you borrow money from the casino and end up in debt, some odd 
things can end up happening.  When you're taken to a hospital, you get $100 
rather than having to pay $100.  If you have to go to a Pay N Spray during a 
mission (or on your own), you can't because you don't have money.  Also, you 
can never buy food so you eventually always die of hunger.  When you do a 
Unique Stunt, it'll still say it gives you $500, but it actually resets your 
debt to 0.

--- [Get Inside Toll Booth] ---

Description: You know those toll booths that open entrances for your at 
airports?  You can't even jump inside them, but I've managed this...

To do this, head to the San Fierro airport.  Once inside, head to the 
northwest corner where there is another toll booth.  It's slightly not solid; 
you can drive half a car into it.  However, the Kart is nice and small, so if 
you drive into the south wall, or west wall, you may go through or may see 
inside and not make it through.  It could take a few tries.  You can also get 
out, once inside.

--- [Melting CJ] ---

Description: Grab a Mountain Bike (there's one at the skate park in LS, and 
one at the base of Mount Chiliad).  Press and hold square to reverse, and 
then rapidly press X while still holding square.  CJ will start to oddly 
twist and stretch off the bike into the side of the screen.  If you let go of 
both at the same time, you can then continue rapidly hitting X to see how 
long you can keep CJ like this.  After a while, he'll shrink back down to the 
right size on the bike.

--- [Cheap Crane] ---

Description: Head to the Clown's Pocket in Las Venturas.  There, you'll find 
a crane which can be entered by pressing triangle.  The crane doesn't work 
very well though; if you try and pick up a car, it'll just go through it.  
However, you can grab the boxes stacked near the crane, tow them up in the 
air, and leave them floating.  It makes for some weird pictures.

--- [Frozen Gang Fight] ---

Description: If you've provoked a gang war and are in the middle of a fight, 
try going out on a date.  All gang members will stand still, no matter how 
close you get to them.  They'll only attack you if provoked, but then your 
girl may even come to help out!  Denise started kicking a Ballas member, then 
the Ballas guy ran away... funny stuff. 

--- [Interiors Unlocked Right Away] ---

Description: If you don't mind popping in a cheat, enter the jetpack cheat 
during the first cutscene with Pulaski and Tenpenny.  As soon as the game 
starts, stores that are regularly locked such as clothing shops, will be 
open.  Apparently you can also buy properties in any city.  However, be sure 
to buy whatever you want, because as soon as you do the next mission 
everything locks again, only to be unlocked when they would regularly be if 
you hadn't cheated.

--- [CJ's House Warp] ---

Description: Grab a bicycle and go to CJ's house in Los Santos.  At the front 
of the house, you're going to do a bunny hop and try and land on the fence in 
front (not the breakable one, you want the one that's on the porch).  Once 
you land on it, lean forwards.  Sometimes you'll pop out either above the 
house and drop down, or sometimes in other areas like Ryder's driveway.  It 
takes several tries to do and is hard to reproduce, but it seems pretty 
random where you end up when you warp.

Needless to say, this section may contain spoilers.

--- [Saint Mark's Bistro] ---

There are three ways to explore Liberty City.  They are:
a) Jumping over the wall during the mission "Saint Mark's Bistro".
b) Flying to Liberty City using the jetpack, a cheating device, and the 
hidden interiors glitch.
c) Flying up to Liberty City using the jetpack and the hidden interiors 
glitch (no cheat device needed).  

I will be explaining listing a) here.  If you like to find out more about b), 
read up on my Hidden Interiors FAQ which can be found at GameFAQs.  For more 
information about c), read up on it here:  I have to admit, 
although the method works, it's an extreme pain to do so!

Anyways, on to explanation a).  During the mission "Saint Mark's Bistro", 
continue on killing everyone until you get to the courtyard.  Kill everyone 
there except the guy with the arrow above his head.  Now, run down and push 
the car to the part where the ground rises.  This will give you some 
protection from the guy shooting you.  With a grenade equipped, toss it to 
the wall, and jump after waiting a second or to.  If you were in the air 
while the grenade went off, you'll be shot up and over the wall.  If not, you 
may need to try again while putting in the health cheat.  However, once 
you're over you can walk down to the road.  Just be careful, many areas 
aren't solid and you'll drop down to the ground as you would in the ghost 
world glitches.  Try shooting the ground with a gun to see where you 
shouldn't walk.  If you want to fly around with a jetpack to explore, you'll 
need a cheating device because it won't work this high up.

Description: During the mission "Beat Down on B-Dup", right at the start 
after the cutscene, get into a car.  Now slowly drive over Sweet, so that you 
run him over without killing him.  He should be stuck under the car, but 
still alive.  As soon as he's pinned underneath, run to the Johnson house and 
go inside.  You'll get a message saying "Mission Failed!" "Sweet Died!", and 
you'll start to drop.  It'll take a while, but eventually you'll drop all the 
way back down to the roof of the Johnson house.  You may want to bring a

--- [Gym Glitch] ---

Many people have found that when going to visit a gym and trying to use 
equipment they constantly receive this message:
"You have worked out enough for today, please come back tomorrow!"

Cause: Unknown/first variant of the glitch thought to be caused by repeatedly 
attacking people in the gyms
Solution: See below for two suggested solutions

Now this isn't a case of people needing to come back the next day, because it 
STILL happens no matter what.

Some people have different experiences for example some can workout at the 
following gyms still:
Madd Dogg's mansion gym
Beach Gym (located on the East side of the Santa Maria beach)

But cannot workout at these gyms:
Los Santos - Boxing gym
San Fierro - Marital Arts gym
Las Venturas - Below The Belt gym

Most people find that they STILL cannot use Madd Dogg's equipment or the 
Beach gym's equipment.

People with the ability to still workout at the Madd Dogg and beach gyms 
should try BOTH gym glitch solutions.
I will call this variant of the glitch G1.

People who cannot use ANY gym equipment in the game should only try the 
second gym glitch solution as these people tend to have not attacked people 
in the gyms, which the appearance change tends to solve.
I will call this variant of the glitch G2.

Some suggested solutions that DON'T work are:
Getting Busted
Getting Wasted
Being Sick (suggested by Take2 support)
Getting beaten up frequently (not killed but loosing a lot of health, again 
suggested by Take2)
Increasing fat/Decreasing fat
Decreasing muscle
Completing the Triathlon - Beat The Cock
Dying in 2 player

Please note that having 100% stamina is NOT THE CAUSE, as I have found a save 
of mine where I have around 80% and I still have the glitch.

Also completing the storyline missions is also NOT THE CAUSE, as I and a mate 
have saves just after End Of The Line (the final mission storyline mission) 
where we can still work out.

Some people's problem (mainly the people with G1) may be due to constantly 
killing people in the gyms, this is not the DEFFINATE cause as quite a lot of 
people (like myself, who TEND to have G2) NEVER attacked people in the gyms.

This glitch tends to happen late game.

First Gym Glitch Solution: Changing Appearance Entirely (only for G1 people)

Firstly REMOVE ALL tattoos at a tattoo parlour.
Then change your hairstyle at a barber's.
Then Buy a WHOLE set of clothing in a shop, according to someone on these 
forums you HAVE to BUY the following (not change in your wardrobe):
A new torso clothing
A new leg clothing - you NEED to get a new set of BOXERS from BINCO as well
A new pair of shoes
A new hat
A new set of shades
A new chain
A new watch

If that doesn't work the following memory card method has been SUGGESTED

Second Gym Glitch Solution: Memory Card Methods (for both G1 and G2 people)

Please note that for these methods, you will need a second memory card.

Method 1
Firstly load the save that has the gym bug.
Now remove your OLD memory card from the slot
Put a NEW memory card into the slot
Save on the NEW memory card
Load this save from the NEW memory card
Go to the gym
Save on the NEW memory card
Now remove the NEW memory card and put in the OLD memory card
Save over the glitched save

This should work apparently, if it doesn't, try Method 2

Method 2
Put the OLD memory card in slot 1 and the NEW memory card in slot 2.

In the Browser (available at the PS2's startup) go to the OLD memory card, 
select the GTA: San Andreas data, press :circle: to enable the Copy To 
function and copy this data on to the NEW memory card.
You should no longer have the glitch any more (I cannot confirm this myself, 
but this is the current suggested solution).

Method 3
Put the OLD memory card in slot 1 and the NEW memory card in slot 2

In the Browser (available at the PS2's startup) go to the OLD memory card, 
select the GTA: San Andreas data, press :circle: to enable the Copy To 
function and copy this data on to the NEW memory card.
Now exit this and start the game, thus loading the game from the NEW memory 
Now remove the NEW memory card and insert the OLD memory card.
Save the game over the OLD memory card.

You should now be able to use the gyms (as you can see, this method is a 
combination of 1 and 2).

Third Gym Glitch Solution: My Starvation/Beaten Up Method

Got this method working for 4 different saves as well as 2 of a mate's saves. 
We tried this 3 times for each save to make sure it was this solution that 
was causing the gym to work.

Step 1:
Get around 40% fat if you have 100% muscle (or 100% fat if you have low 
Go to the Johnson's Home safe house
Leave the game over night with CJ just standing in the safe house (standing 
in the street DOESN'T WORK
The high fat level is to ensure you DON'T die from starvation.

Step 2:
You should now still be in the safe house (DON'T let CJ die from starvation) 
probably with very little health
Go outside and pick a fight with someone who will only use fists to attack 
Let them hit you until you are almost dead.
Go back in the safe house and save.
Go outside and pick a fight again, let them hit you until you are almost 
Now save and go out and get beaten up (NOT till you die) another 2 times.
Now save

Step 3:
Repeat step 1

Step 4:
You should now be able to use the gym
Use the gym once
Go back to the safe house and save

It is advisable to delete all other save games and just keep one save game 
(as suggested in the gym glitch prevention method listed below this 

It seems the combination of starving until you have no fat or muscle AT ALL 
and almost die, then save, then get beaten up repeatedly when you don't have 
fat or muscle enables you to use the gym again. You need to repeat all steps 
again if it doesn't work as eventually CJ will be able to work out at the 
gym. DO NOT let CJ die from starvation, as that didn't work all the time when 
he died.

Gym Glitch Prevention

Note: This PREVENTION (not SOLUTION) will only work if you have a save that 
doesn't have the glitch. If you only have saves with the glitch then you 
cannot use this prevention. If this is the case please try the above 
solutions and those suggested in this topic. For those who do have a recent 
save without the glitch, please try the prevention below, and post your 

Recently Chang posted a method to PREVENT the gym glitch.

He feels that by saving with two saves slots that are within a SHORT TIME 
PERIOD of each other, you will incur the gym glitch.

For example you save at 10:42:23 in SLOT 1 and then again at 10:42:56 in a 
DIFFERENT slot (for example SLOT 2), your saves will look like this in the 
save menu:

(SAVE FILE 1)END OF THE LINE 17 NOV 2004 10:42:23
(SAVE FILE 2)END OF THE LINE 17 NOV 2004 10:42:56

He feels that saving like this causes the glitch and therefore SAVE FILE 2 is 
now glitched. Please note that even by saving in Slot 1 then Slot 6 for 
example, the problem will STILL occur

By deleting SAVE FILE 2 you will remove the glitched save. You must now 
restart the PS2 and therefore automatically load the non-glitched SAVE FILE 

Therefore to prevent this problem after deleting the glitched save and 
restarting to load from the non-glitched save:
DO NOT save in a short time period, if you do, save on the SAME slot, 
otherwise the glitch will occur.

Can I say this, these are currently the most successful SUGGESTED solutions, 
they are not 100% working solutions (we haven't found 100% working ones yet).

This is posted courtesy of "The End 007" Of
CAUSE 1: Killing the gym trainer
Killing the guy whom you challenege will causes an error but the workout 
glitch comes from having done the max workout for the day then killing the 
gym trainer. This error usually only prevents you from using the actual gyms 
and not the beach and madd dog's mansion gyms. Since the error here is with 
just the gyms. I tested this six times and each time I got the gym bug.

CAUSE 2: Dying in the gym
Dying in the gym again having had your full days workout causes the general 
error where you cannot use any gym equipment, this cause can actually be 
split into three categories because it varies.

Category one:
Dying during the challenege, I tested each cause 6 times and this one caused 
the gym glitch every time. Dying whilst in a challenge fight caused the gym 
bug for me I suspect and as far as I can tell is a definate will cause the 
gym bug thing.

Category two:
Dying in the gym but respawning the next day, again six tests but this time I 
only got the gym bug five times. But as a general rule if you die in the gym 
then respawn at the hospital and it's the next day you stand a good chance of 
falling victim to the gym bug.

Category three:
Dying in the gym, rarest occurance, dying in the gym and respawning the same 
day only caused the gym bug twice out of the six tests done but it is still 
it would seem a possible cause.

--- [No More Pool] ---

This glitch is when people can no longer play pool, due to people inside bars 
acting as if you are attacking the bar (the bartender for some reason will be 
loaded holding her hands in the air as if you are pointing a gun at her and 
the people in the bar will be in the foetal position). The guy you play pool 
with, will NOT respond to you pressing the triangle button.

Cause: attacking people in the bars many times
Solution: to change appearance ENTIRELY

Pool Glitch Solution: Changing Appearance Entirely

Firstly REMOVE ALL tattoos at a tattoo parlour.
Then change your hairstyle at a barber's.
Then Buy a WHOLE set of clothing in a shop, according to someone on these 
forums you HAVE to BUY the following (not change in your wardrobe, if you 
have bought all clothes, you can still buy them again):
A new torso clothing
A new leg clothing - you NEED to get a new set of BOXERS from BINCO as well
A new pair of shoes
A new hat
A new set of shades
A new chain

--- [Basketball Glitch] ---

This glitch is when you can't find any basketball's to play with at the 
basketball courts.  The cause is most likely you saving at Madd Dogg's 
mansion, and the glitch is irreversible.  There's no way to fix it without 
starting a new game, just make sure you don't save there again!

--- [Garages Won't Open] ---

This glitch is most likely caused because there are too many modded cars in 
your garage.  In the best circumstances, to get a garage to open with modded 
cars, stand in front and wait, and repeatedly pause and unpause.  Just give 
it time to open.  If you have felony, there's a good chance it won't open at 
all by the time you die.  I've waited several minutes and still nothing, so 
your best bet is to make sure you don't have felony if you want to get your 
garage open.

--- [Cars Lose Paint Job] ---

This happens to modded cars that are in your garage.  It seems to be 
completely random, with your car coming out just white.  There's no fix to 
this problem.

--- [Madd Dogg Jumps] ---

This problem occurs during the mission "The Meat Business".  Madd Dogg is 
supposed to waver at the top of the roof, and you move to catch him.  The 
problem many have experienced is that he'll jump right away before you having 
a chance to catch him.  The cause seems to be that you've entered the Ped 
Riot cheat earlier and saved with it on.  Never save with cheats!  The game 
is officially messed, and there is no fix for this.  You'll have to either 
start a new game, or not progress in the missions.

--- [Gang Tags Stuck] ---

If you find yourself not able to spray over tags, you probably have this 
glitch.  It is caused by you spraying over a tag, and running out of paint 
before it finishes.  You'll be unable to finish spraying it once you refill 
your canister.  There is no known fix, but to prevent it in the future, make 
sure you have enough paint when spraying.

--- [Vortex Paint Job] ---

Anytime you try and get a paintjob on a vortex, when you come out the game 
will freeze up.  It's easy to prevent; don't get a paintjob!

--- [Get Airplanes without Pilot License] ---

Description: This can be done in both all parts of San Andreas, at each 
airpot.  The shortest wall around the Los Santos airport can be found on the 
north side.  The shortest wall around the San Fierro airport is found by 
taking the main road straight into the airport, and continue straight until 
you reach the main gate.  For both airports, park a car beside the wall, jump 
on the car, and jump over and into the airport.  In all the airports, the 
easiest way to get in is to simply drive up to the main entrance where you're 
told you need a pilot's license.  Park a car beside the booth, hop on the 
car, and hop over the fence.  Without a pilot's license, you can fly: in Los 
Santos' airport, a flyable Dodo and Shamal; in San Fierro, a Maverick, and in 
Las Venturas' airport, a Dodo, Shamal, and AT-400.  The AT-400 is stored on 
in the hanger on the left when you enter, you'll have to approach it so the 
gate lowers.
Found by: Dan Montgomery

Another way of getting inside early, with a vehicle, sent by John C: "The key 
thing seems to be to run up to the gates and then run alongside them so that 
your arm actually passes through the gate. The program then spots that you 
are (partially) inside the gate and opens them as though you had approached 
them from inside the airport.  Sometimes you even get the gate security guard 
telling you that this entrance is only for licensed pilots even as the gates 
are sliding open."

--- [CJ Pukes] ---

Description: Go to any food shop, and continually buy food items (not salad 
though).  After you've eaten 10 or 11 meals, eat another.  The camera will 
cut back, and CJ will spew over the floor.  Don't eat any more after!

--- [Fast Nitro Recharge] ---

Description: After fitting a car with nitro, you can use it by pressing L1.  
It lasts for about 15 seconds, but then takes a minute to recharge so you can 
use it again.  If you'd like to use it right after, simply hop out of the 
car, and get back in.  You can then use the nitrous right away.

--- [Two Vehicles In Two Player] ---

Description: First off, two player mode is only activated by finding 2 player 
icons scattered across the maps.  The easiest way to find them is by using 
the map I've made here:  Use the 
free roam icons for this trick.

Normally, when you try and enter two separate vehicles in 2 player mode, the 
second player won't be able to.  However, one fun thing to try is both 
players using a Jetpack.  Player 1 can get it from the abandoned airstrip, 
then run a small distance away with player 2.  When you come back, another 
one should be waiting for you there.  I've found it appears when you stay 
near and just turn your back to the spawn point; driving far away and coming 
back doesn't work as well.  If you're a cheater, you can always use the spawn 
Jetpack code (L1, L2, R1, R2, Up, Down, Left, Right, L1, L2, R1, R2, Up, 
Down, Left, Right) to get another one.  Try killing each other in the air... 
it's pretty tough.  

Another submission, by Derrick: The other vehicle that 2 players can use are 
boats.  Try both hopping in a boat, then one drives until you see another 
boat.  The second player can then hop in the other boat and drive along with 

--- [I/E Crane Swing] ---

Description: Get to the Import/Export crane in San Fierro, located beside the 
airport.  Enter the crane by pressing triangle, and hook up the end to the 
car you drove inside.  Leave at least enough slack on the line so that the 
car is on the ground.  Now, leave the crane and enter the car.  The magnet 
will still be attached, and when you try and drive forwards you'll be lifted 
in the air!  It also works well with NOS, or if you try and drive over the 
water, because you'll swing back onto land.  

Another suggestion, by Jamie Magic Pants: Leave some slack on the crane line 
so the magnet is on the ground.  Drive from far away, with NOS, towards the 
magnet.  It will automatically connect to your car and you'll end up getting 
some big air time once the line runs out of slack!

--- [Get Rid of Gang War or Felony] ---

Description: If you don't feel like fighting a gang war, simply go and save 
your game at a safe house.  Once you go outside again, there is no gang war 
anymore.  The same goes for felony.  Just save your game and the felony will 
be gone.

--- [High Bike Jumps] ---

Description: To do a fairly large jump, continue to rapidly press X while on 
any bike (not motorcycle).  Eventually, with the right timing, CJ will pull 
of a larger jump than is normally possible.

sure you have a gun that can shoot from your bike first.  Now, do a bunny hop 
by pressing L1, and hit circle to shoot right after.  If you can get the 
timing right, you'll jump incredibly high.  It may take a few tries.

Description: Get one of your fellow OGF members on the street to join your 
current gang by targeting them with R1 and hitting up on the d-pad.  Now make 
sure you have a camera in your equipment, go up to the gang member, and a 
message will come up giving you the option to hit L1 to take a picture of 
yourself.  If you hit L1, they'll take a picture of you and you'll have the 
option of saving it for your gallery.

Another way to get a picture of yourself, from the back: Quickly tap R1 and 
then hit L1 right after.  When you're taken to the picture saving screen, 
instead of normally seeing the scene you took a picture of, it'll also add 
you to the picture.

shooting range with a weapon that is sold at AmmuNation and exit it. When you 
exit, you will get more ammo.  Continue to do this as many times as you'd

Description: If you're dating either Barbara or Kate in a game so that you

--- [Make Money Fast Without Cheats] ---

Description: Go to the Inside Betting Track, where you bet on horse races.  
Bet all your money on the teal horse, which has the highest odds of either 
1/11 or 1/12.  Keep pressing buttons to add more than the increment it shows.
If you win, congratulations, then save the game.  If you lose, simply reload.
Don't get frustrated if you keep losing, just stick with the teal horse and 
you'll win within the 1/12 odds.  Doing it a few times will quickly bring you 
to over $10 million dollars!  Keep in mind this is a pretty cheap way to get 
cash, and is on the border of being cheating.  However, if you really want 
some cash, no one is going to stop you.

--- [Guy from GTA3] ---

Description: If you've played GTA3 before, you'll remember the main character 
as being nameless, and he didn't talk.  Note: Contains spoilers.

He's seen as Catalina's new boyfriend that you meet in the race in the 
countryside.  You also find out his name was Claude.  Here's the script of 
the part that talks about them going to Liberty City: 
'My lover needs his car so we can go to Liberty City'
'Liberty City? Yeah, whatever, have a good time'

As most know, in GTA3, the first thing that happens is you get backstabbed by 
Catalina while robbing a bank.  Here are some of the things Catalina says 
about Claude:

'Oh Claude, it's bigger than the gear stick!''Oh Claude, I don't know if I'm 
woman enough!'  
'Claude is so manful, so FORCEFUL!'

And it goes on...

--- [CJ's House Items] ---

Description: There are a few hidden things to find in CJ's original house in 
Los Santos.  Firstly, you can see a surfboard with the Vice City beach on it, 
in the room where you change your clothes.  There's also a magazine on the 
bed, which has a few screenshots of Las Venturas in it.  One of the screens 
in there is actually a screenshot that was used by magazines previewing the 
game, before it came out. 

--- [Geyser] ---

Description: Pretty cool thing, it's an actual working geyser you can find in 
Las Venturas.  It's directly west of the middle of the Restricted Area.  
Watch as it turns on and off, with people crowding around to watch.  The 
second picture is it on the map.

--- [USS Numnutz] ---

Description: Head to the northern part of San Fierro, with the long docks 
pointing out.  If you're facing north, head to the furthest one on the left 
up there.  Walk along the dock on the right side, and you'll see a submarine 
docked there.  On it's side, it says "USS Numnutz".  It could be a possible 
play on the real-life Nimitz Class Aircraft Carrier.

--- [Wanker] ---

Description: A play on words of the plane you buy rides on.  If you look on 
the side of it, you'll see it's called the "Juank Air".  Say the two words 
together to get "wanker".  Not as commonly used in North America than 
Britain, but nonetheless is a term that is used to describe someone that 
plays with themself.  Also, Wang Cars in San Fierro sounds like wankers, and 
RS Haul Depot sounds like arsehole depot.  Lastly, Vank Off Hotel sounds like 
wank off.

statue of a guy that's broken.  However, it looks like he's having a little 
fun with himself!

Description: A small, yet interesting detail.  If you listen to any radio 
station, you'll hear an ad from the "Ban Immigration Greencards Outright

--- [BP/FP/EP/DP Sabre] ---

Special Qualities: Bulletproof, Fireproof, Explosion Proof, Damage Proof
During Mission: Tanker Commander (Catalina)
Instructions: When you first meet Catalina in Dillimore ("First Date") she 
will give you four locations to rob. The first one is right down the road at 
the gas station. Drive into the red marker to trigger the mission. Now a 
(locked) Sabre has spawned in the parking lot of the gas station. It's 
quite easy to push it on the road by foot and then use the tanker to push it 
straight down the street to your garage.  Remember, before pushing the Sabre

--- [BP/FP/EP Patriot] ---

Special Qualities: Bulletproof, Fireproof, Explosion Proof
During Mission: Cesar's Courier Missions
Instructions: Right after finishing "Are You Going to San Fierro?" you will 
get a call from Cesar about the first crack delivery to SF. It will be the 
coveted Patriot (the first courier always is). 
Now, take any vehicle and head to the junkyard north of Angel Pine and take 
the Tow Truck. Then head back directly to northeast San Fierro, ignore the 
courier's route. Park on the right side of the walkway at Esplanade North.  
The Patriot will eventually arrive there, mo matter what route he takes. 
After circling some rounds it should eventually come to a stop. Now the 
tricky part begins. 
If you have bad luck, the patriot will get hit by a trolley and flip (that 
happened several times to me). You can try to push the wreck to your next 
garage, but I would rather not choose to. If it stays upright, try to attach 
it to the tow truck. 
Important: If you ever lose contact with the Patriot it might seem to vanish 
(like in GTA3/VC where special cars disappeared when you lost sight of them 

while pushing). However, most often it is still there: it just "teleported" 
in a radius of about 30 yards. I know that sounds strange, but it happened 
to me several times. I know it was the exact same car, as the OG homie was 
still sitting inside. 

However, rest should be obvious: Tow the car to your next garage, push it in 
and viola, there you have your Patriot. If you are unfortunate, a trolley 
might hit it just before your garage. But you can push the wreck into the 
garage, it will convert into the desired vehicle.

Instructions: During the mission, when you reach the finish line, wait in 
front of it, and do not finish the race until the other racers are close to 
the finish line.  Pull into the finish line to win, if Cesar didn't crash, 
his car will be among those that show-up.  Do not fire any weapons as they 
will spook the drivers.  Cesar remains in the car, and you cannot obtain it. 
However, if you hit his car with another vehicle, Cesar will climb out and 
attempt to attack you.  Kill him, than push his Savanna back to a garage.

near the curvy turns in The Panopticon.  Once his car falls into the water,

sometimes it won't.  If the vehicle doesn't move, than exit your vehicle, let 
the count-down run out so that you fail the mission.  Then, reenter your car, 
and strike Woozie's Elegy with your vehicle so that he will exit.  Kill him 
than push his Elegy to a garage.

Special Qualities: Fireproof
During Mission: High Stakes, Low-Rides
Instructions: During the mission, the opponent vehicle is fireproof.  There 
are probably a few ways to obtain it, but here is an easy way to get this 
vehicle and the others.  You'll need to simply fail with a tow-truck.  First,
find a Towtruck, then bring it to a house away from the mission marker.  
Steal one of the low-riders near the mission starter and drive into the 
marker to trigger the mission.  Once the mission starts, let Cesar go ahead, 
exit the low-rider, and head back to your Towtruck.  Use the Towtruck to tow 
your low-rider to the starting point. Park the Towtruck a car length or two 
behind where you would start in this race.  Exit the Towtruck, reenter the 
low-rider and drive into the starting marker.  After the count-down ends, 
quickly exit your vehicle and enter the Towtruck.  Hurry and drive as quickly 
as you can to catch up with the other racers as you only have about 20 
seconds before you fail the mission from exiting the low-rider.  Once you 
catch-up with them, you fail, but continue chasing after them, they'll 
eventually stop at an intersection at Santa Maria Beach.  Simply hit the 
vehicle you want with the Towtruck to make the driver leave the car, kill the 
driver, than tow his vehicle back to your garage.

Description: If you see a locked car you'd like to get into, putting it into 
any of your garages will unlock it.  You can push it there yourself, or, the 
more easier way would be to tow it there with either a Tractor or Tow Truck.  
Back up and unhook it in the garage, then let the door close.  Go inside and 
it will then be unlocked.  

--- [Get Hydra Early] ---

Description: To get it before 100% and before you receive it in a mission, 
you'll have to be in Las Venturas first.  Once you've unlocked street races, 
go the Las Venturas airport and start the race called "Military Service".  
The race starts off with you, in a Hydra, at the airplane graveyard.  Just go 
beside the hangar there and wait for it to open.  Then, park it inside, and 
run away so the garage closes.  Once the timer runs out, quit the race 
selection screen, and go back to the abandoned airport.  The Hydra will be 
waiting for you in the hangar!

--- [Get a Kart] ---

Description: Similar to the Hydra trick, start up the street races from the 
south location in San Fierro.  Choose the go-karting race, and then drive the 
Go-Kart all the way to your garage by the construction site.  Park it inside, 
let the garage close, and then run away until time runs out.  Exit from the 
race selection screen, and drive to your garage.  You'll see the Kart 
parked in there to be used any time.

Another suggestion, by gator455: Another spot the Kart is located is near 
CJ's house.  Head from CJ's house to the empty water canal, and on the other 
side under the bridge you'll find the Kart.  However, you won't find it there 
at the start of the game.  It's believed to be found there after completing 
all the story missions.  If you've found otherwise, please email me.  

Another location, by tiger61378: The Kart can be found at the lower entrance 
to Madd Dogg's Crib (the one that leads to the narrow downhill road) after 
completing the mission "Cut Throat Business".

modded there.  The only exception to this rule is that the Savanna can't be 
modded there.

--- [Get All 6 Gang Members to Travel With You] ---

Description: A lot of people have been asking me what's the point of having a 
6 man gang when they can't travel with you.  Well, Derrick has sent me 
solutions in each mode of travel:
Land: A Coach or Bus can carry all the members of your gang.
Sea: All your gang members will follow you on any boat, once you start to 
drive.  It's better to have more standing room in the boat, so using a Jetmax 
isn't your best choice.
Air: Use the AT-400 in Las Venturas to bring all 6 members with you.

--- [Leaning Forwards on Bikes] ---

Description: I shouldn't have to add this, but I guess some people still 
don't know.  To go faster on a bike than normally accelerating, hold the left 
analog stick slightly forwards.  If CJ is standing up on the bike, you're 
pushing up too hard.  You want his head to dip down below the bike.  You'll 
get the blur effect in seconds like this.  This trick goes back to Vice City, 
although it was harder to tell it worked in that game.

--- [Map Marker] ---

Description: Pause the game, and press X to enter the map menu.  There, use 
circle to pinpoint a location.  It'll show up on your radar all the time 
until you take it off.  It's especially great if you're looking for specific 
things from this FAQ.

--- [Beat the Cock] ---

Description: There are two triathalons that Rockstar's put in the game.  If 
you visit a gym, you'll see posters asking "Are you a cock?", and inviting 
you to go to Santa Maria Beach or Palamino Creek Beach on the weekends.  Go 
there if it's Saturday or Sunday, and be prepared to race.  They're tough, 
you'll go through biking, swimming, and sprinting, but by the end if you win 
you'll get $10000.  As the poster says, "Cock a do it"!

--- [Parachutes] ---

Parachutes are always found in high places around San Andreas.  Here's a 
1) On top of tallest building in Los Santos at the Mulholland intersection in 
Los Santos.  You can enter the building from the bottom by stepping into the 
yellow marker.  You can also take a bike up and use it to jump off.
2) On top of Mount Chiliad.  It's by the parked cars, slightly off the road 
and on the rocks.  You can take a helicopter up to the top, or take the hard 
way and drive up.
3) On top of Big Pointy Building in San Fierro.  You can warp up by entering 
the doors at the bottom of the building.  There is no yellow marker however.
4) On the top of the northern end of the big red bridge, in the northwest 
side of the map.
5) On the top of a broadcasting tower in Bone County, Las Venturas, just a 
short distance southwest of the restricted area.  Walk to the base of the 
tower and it'll place you at the top.  You can't get back down, 
unfortunately, without using the parachute.
6) Entering a plane after obtaining your pilot's license will automatically 
give you a parachute.  
7) Inside a shack in the desert, there's also a Sanchez sitting near it.  
It's just west of the abandoned airstrip. 

You can use a parachute and then it disappears from your inventory.  You can 
also base jump off a roof, bail out of a plane, or bail out of a vehicle from 
a high point to use the parachute. 

--- [Goggles] ---

There are two types of goggles to be found around San Andreas.  One type is 
night vision goggles, and the other is infrared goggles.  There are 4 
locations to get infrared goggles, and 3 locations to get the night vision 
ones.  To equip one, hit circle when it's selected in your items inventory.  
It will then stay on while you switch to other weapons.  The easiest place to 
find a pair of infrared goggles is under "The Big Ear", which is the large 
satellite in Las Venturas.  There's also a pair in the back of Zero's RC 
shop.  If you'd like to find night vision goggles, just go to Madd Dogg's 
Crib and you'll find it inside the building.  If you can't go inside, you can 
find another pair in the restricted area of Las Venturas.  It's on the west 
side, on top of one of the outlook towers.

--- [Jetpack] ---

This contains some spoilers.  You'll receive the Jetpack after completing the 
abandoned airstrip missions and acquire it.  You actually get the Jetpack, 
and have a chance to use it, during the "Black Project" mission at the 
airstrip, where you have to recover it for The Truth.  But, it won't start 
spawning at the airstrip until you beat the mission after that, called Green 
Goo.  It spawns right beside the entrance to the safehouse, and it is used as 
an item in your inventory.  You'll still be able to select from several 
specific weapons to use to shoot with it while flying.

Or, you can get the Jetpack anytime you want.  Use the following cheat: Left, 
Right, L1, L2, R1, R2, Up, Down, Left, Right.

                     -----------[9.C Gifts]----------

--- [Dildo] ---

Yes, the double sided dildos are real weapons in the game.  They're pretty 
strong too; it takes 3 hits to kill someone.  To find one, go into any police 
station and enter the showers at the back to find it.  You'll get some felony 
when you go back there, but you can easily get rid of the felony afterwards 
by going to a Pay N Spray.  The dildos can also be used as gifts.  Just go up 
your girlfriend and give it to her by pressing L1.

--- [Flowers] ---

There are a total of 39 locations to find flowers all around San Andreas.  
They can be used as weapons, and do a fair bit of damage.  You can also give 
them to your girlfriend by pressing L1.  Some are harder to find than most 
items, so you'll have to look in the bushes most of the time.  An easy 
location to find one is in Glen Park, on the southeast side.

--- [Vibrator] ---

This one is certainly hard to find.  It was originally thought by many people 
that it was taken out of the game, because you could still find the icon on 
the game disc.  Here is Sean H's description on where to find it: "You can 
find the Vibrator at the southern part of Bayside. It's location is fairly 
easy to find and here is how you find it: As you go down the long road that 
curves to the right which takes you into Bayside, take the second left and 
follow that road until you come to a portion where the left part of the road 
is blocked off by road cautions and an orange dumpster behind it. Drive (or 
walk) through the road blockers and look behind the dumpster, the vibrator 
will be there. It is somewhat hard to see since it is fairly small and 
silverish-white in color which blends very well with the dumpster."  

The vibrators can also be used as gifts.  Just go up your girlfriend and give 
it to her by pressing L1.

[ ] 1 Busted/Wasted = -3 points

-10000 is the minimum, and 1000000 is the maximum.

--- [Pilot Rankings] ---

Here's the pilot rankings you can attain.  

Some side notes: 
I'm aware that Biggs and Wedge were names from Final Fantasy, but those 2 
names along with Maverick, Goose, etc, were also from Top Gun.  And, even 
before that, they were from Star Wars, which seems to be the original time 
the names were used (thanks to Billy C and others).  

If you're wondering what "Noops" is, it's named after a user of the IGN 
boards that flew the Dodo in GTA3 for 52 hours (of course, he took breaks)!

The ranking Chappy is from the flying-related movie Iron Eagle, where there 
was a character Col. Charles 'Chappy' Sinclair (thanks to mat).

                    | 8:00 - 9:00   | Maverick          |

                    | 10:00 - 20:00 | Air Chief Marshal |
                    | 20:00 - 30:00 | Ace               |

                      -----------[10.B Finding]----------

--- [Tags] ---

Tags are gang logos you'll see on walls all over Los Santos.  There are 100 
in total.  Collecting all 100 is required for 100%.  To complete each one, 
you'll have to have a spray paint can in your inventory.  Go up to a tag and 
use R1 to target it, then spray it over by using the item.  Find and cover 
all 100 to get your reward of a Tec-9, AK-47, Molotovs, and Sawed-Off Shotgun 
at CJ's House.  To help you out, I've made a map of all of them, with 
pictures of each:

--- [Snapshots] ---

Snapshots are little, floating icons of a camera you can see only in San 
Fierro.  To find one, you must be looking through a camera lens.  To take a 
picture of one so that it registers in your stats, you'll need to zoom up to 
it, and hit the L1 button.  There are 50 in total, and you can normally find 
them in high, picturesque places like the top of a skyscraper or tower.  Get 
all 50 and you'll receive the Sniper Rifle, Micro SMG, Shotgun, and Grenades, 
at your San Fierro garage.  Collecting all 50 is required for 100%, as well.  
To help you out, I've made a map of all of them, with pictures of each that 
you can find here:

--- [Horseshoes] ---

Horseshoes are found only in Las Venturas.  There are 50 in total, and they 
are actual horseshoes that float vertically in the air.  They don't float in 
the air like snapshots however, these you have to touch to pickup and are 
always able to be reached by foot.  Collecting all 50 is required for 100%, 
as well.  If you collect all 50, you get increased luck, the M4, MP5, 
Shotgun, and Satchels, at the Four Dragons Casino.

--- [Oysters] ---

Oysters can be a pain to find.  There are 50 in total, and they are found 
underwater all around the entire state of San Andreas.  To pick them up, just 
touch them while you're diving underwater.  The reward for all 50 is well 
worth it though; you get increased lung capacity and sex appeal.  Collecting 
all 50 are required for 100%, as well.

                   -----------[10.C Other]----------

--- [100% Completion] ---

To get 100%, you must complete the following things:

  [ ] All storyline and non-storyline missions
  [ ] All side missions
  [ ] All R3 missions done
  [ ] All safe houses purchased
  [ ] All gang tags, oysters, snapshots, and horseshoes

--- [Gun Levels] ---

You'll have to continue to use guns to get them up to the hitman level.  
Hitman level is the ultimate one, where you can even wield two guns at the 
same time, in the case of the Tec-9, Pistol, MP5 and Sawed-Off Shotgun.  To 
raise the level, just put the weapons to good use.  Shooting people or 
vehicles will slowly raise the level, and a message will pop up onscreen once 
you've gained another level.

--- [R3 Missions] ---

There are quite a few R3 Missions you'll have to pass to get 100%.  Here's a 
list of them: 

Ambulance: Pass level 12 to finish this ambulance missions.  If you manage to 
complete them, it's a nice reward of an upgrade in health; up to 150%.

Taxi: Complete 50 taxi missions, not necessarily in a row, to complete it.  
Your reward is now all taxis have NOS already on them.

Vigilante: Complete level 12 to finish the vigilante missions.  Your reward 
is 150% armour.  If you'd like to finish them the easy way, check out the 
Vigilante glitch in the glitches section.

Pimp: Finish level 10 in the pimping missions to complete them.  Now, 
whenever you'd like to gain some health from prostitutes, they'll pay you 
money instead of you paying them.  

Fire truck: Finish level 12 to complete them.  Your reward is very useful; CJ 
becomes fireproof.  He can run through flamethrower fires, but will still 
take damage from blasts such as from grenades.

House Robbing: Continue to do this at night to get as much money as you'd 
like to get.  Note: these missions are NOT required for 100%.  There is only 
1 truck in each of the cities that allows you to hit R3 and perform 
robberies.  They can be found in:
Los Santos: Across from the gym by your safehouse
San Fierro: Next to the lockup, where you drop of the stolen goods
Las Venturas: Next to the lockup, where you drop of the stolen goods

--- [Girlfriends] ---

You'll meet various girls throughout your playing in San Andreas.  As you go 
out on more dates with a girl, your progress with her will go up.  Getting 
them to 100% will get you rewarded with a new outfit, which you can see 
listed on the chart above of unlockables.  The different girls are Denise, 
Michelle, Helena, Katie, Barbara, and Millie.  

--- [I/E Dock] ---

Similar to Vice City, you have to pick up cars that are listed at the 
Import/Export Dock so that they can be delivered.  However, you can also buy 
cars here if you'd like, on certain days of the week.  Here are the car 
lists, in order, as there are 3 separate ones.  The next list only becomes 
available after you've completed the previous one.  Here's all of the cars 
you'll need to deliver.

     | [ ] Stretch     |  [ ] Tanker           |  [ ] ZR-350          |

--- [Schools] ---

There are four different schools to complete: Driving, Flying, Boating, and 
Biking.  Each one has different tests which you can fail, or pass with a 
bronze, silver or gold.  To get a bronze, get 70%-79%.  To get a silver, pass 
with a percentage of 80%-99%.  To get a gold, you'll need to get 100%.  
Here's a list of the things you must complete in each of the schools, to 
pass, which is also printer-friendly:

To get the rewards, you must have a minimum of all of the award.  For 
example, to get the reward for silver at the driving school, you must have 
passed all tests with at least a silver medal.

--- [Races] ---

Along with street races, there are the stadium races called the 8 Track, 
Bloodring and Dirtring.  You must win each to get the rewards listed in the 
chart at the start of this section.  For the street races, you're placed in a 
car so you do not get to choose what you drive.  There's a wide variety as 
well, from fast cars, to planes, to go-karts.
