1. Version Updates


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 new vehicles 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 anything is proven, they're all fake.

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 [email protected] 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.

If you haven't received a response from me in a couple of days, it's for one

of the following reasons:

a) Your email contains a spoiler that I haven't been to yet, so I won't

read it until I'm there

B) I haven't had a chance to try the trick/glitch yet, and I'll respond

once I've tried it

Keep in mind that your submissions may be reworded to properly fit the

context it's being put in.

4. Secrets [sR01]


-----------[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*.

Picture: http://gtadomain.gtagaming.com/images/sa/s...s/truegrime.jpg

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.

Found by: Heavenly Spawn

--- [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.

Picture: http://gtadomain.gtagaming.com/images/sa/s...ts/manhunt2.jpg

--- [Manhunt References] ---

Description: To see a Shock Trooper from Manhunt, head into the bar called

the "Ten Green Bottles" by your house in the OGF neighbourhood. Once

inside, look to the wall on your left and you'll see a drawing of one of the

director's Shock Troopers from the Manhunt game. It can also be seen in some

other bars as well.

Picture: http://gtadomain.gtagaming.com/images/sa/s...hocktrooper.jpg

Found by: Mike N

If you're in the City Planning Department (can be entered only during the

mission Architectural Espionage, or by using the Hidden Interiors Universe

glitch), you can see the plans for the Starkweather mansion from the Manhunt


Found by: Gareth

-----------[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.

--- [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.

Picture: http://gtadomain.gtagaming.com/images/sa/s...rthstarrock.jpg

--- [Rockstar Constellation] ---

Description: Look in the night sky to see the Rockstar constellation. This

is also from Vice City.

--- [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.

Picture: http://gtadomain.gtagaming.com/images/sa/s...s/brutality.jpg

--- [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.

"Families 4 Life".

5. Tricks [TR01]


-----------[5.A Gameplay]----------

--- [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

Picture: http://gtadomain.gtagaming.com/images/sa/s...s/lsairport.jpg

Picture: http://gtadomain.gtagaming.com/images/sa/s...s/sfairport.jpg

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!

Picture: http://gtadomain.gtagaming.com/images/sa/secrets/pukes.jpg

--- [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: http://gtadomain.gtagaming.com/2pmap.html. 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.

--- [super 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.

Found by: Alan B

Another, Higher Way: You can be riding or not moving for this to work. Make

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: Start running forwards, with the camera equipped. Lightly tap

R1, and now CJ will be standing still in the running position. You can spin

him in circles as long as you'd like. To unfreeze him, let go of the analog


--- [Take Picture of Yourself] ---

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.

Found by: The mad gamer

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.

Description: Go to an AmmuNation that has a shooting range. Next, enter the

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

like. If you do this for long enough, you'll eventually max out that

weapon's ammo.

--- [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.

--- [Raise Your Gun Levels Fast] ---

Works On: PlayStation2 [Yes] XBox [???] PC [No]

Description: To raise the levels of the various guns, including the pistol,

uzi, etc., simply continue shooting the tire of a car. Your stats for the

gun will still increase, but the car won't blow up.

building directly west of the Cluckin' Bell in Downtown San Fierro. There is

-----------[6.B Characters]----------

--- [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...

in GTA: Vice City, when you purchased the boat yard. They were the two guys

in the cutscene. Just like in Vice City, in San Andreas they like working on

their machines.

breast pocket would be, although it's almost unnoticeable.

--- [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.

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.

the side of it, you'll see it's called the "Juank Air". Say the two words

nonetheless is a term that is used to describe someone that plays with

7. Glitches [GL01]


-----------[7.A Fun Glitches]----------

Fun glitches that you'll want to do...

-----[7.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.

--- [Liberty City] ---

Description: Contains spoilers.

There are three ways to explore Liberty City (outside of the mission). They


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:

http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?showtopic=184944. 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.

--- [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.

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.

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!

Able to Use: On Foot, Jetpack, Bikes, Cars

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 http://www.edgefiles.com/files/17495.html. If

Able to Use: On Foot, Jetpack

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.

along the Jetpack, so that you can get up to the higher ledge. If you have

trouble locating it, use the map here:

then drop down to continue to fly in the underworld.

of San Fierro. Now, swim in the water and go beside the front of the ship,

on the side away from the dock. Swim straight down, and you should see a

sort of crack in the ground that is grey. Swim right through there, down a

little more, and then look up. You can see below San Fierro from here.

However, it's hard to do it for long because you'll start to drown

eventually. Use the health cheat if you have to.

Description: In this glitch, you can still see the blue hell below you, but

you will not be able to jump into it. Go to the Come-A-Lot district in Las

Venturas. The building is two blocks down from the main drag through the

city, on the north end. It's the red building in the block of buildings.

Take up the stairs in the back to get to the second level of the building.

You can see a horseshoe up here, if you haven't gotten it already. There are

several railings hanging out from the building. Try and get onto one of

balconies with railings by jumping from the roof. Once on, you can just walk

through the wall into the building and take a look around. It's a great spot

if you want to get a lot of felony from the balcony, then run back under the

cover of the roof when the helicopter comes. The picture shows you the

street directly in front of the Binco that heads in the west direction. On

your left are houses. Just before the next intersection, there'll be a

taller house than the rest you've seen along the left side. If you try and

walk through the taller part of that house, you can go right through. The

building has holes to get through on three sides, and are even big enough to

fit a helicopter in there. Although you can move up and down, you can't get

low enough to fly around blue hell fully. Just for looks.

inside, come back out, and you'll find yourself stuck in an invisible Burger

Shot! Also, "It's fun to try this with a high wanted level because nobody

can hurt you. The only way to kill people is with the chainsaw or an

explosive of some kind. Explosives can blow up vehicles too. You can't shoot

through to the outside with a regular weapon because it will hit the wall,

but you can throw projectiles through the wall that faces the street. There

is a section of the southern wall that you can walk through for a bit to see

the outside of the Burger Shot but you can not go outside completely. The

only way to get out is to kill yourself."

--- [Headless CJ] ---

Description: Start up two player mode, and make sure you have a Katana. Now,

get player 2 to use the Katana on CJ. It may take a few tries, but one of

the swipes with the blade should chop his head straight off. Because CJ is

now dead, the 2 player mode will end. It'll now show CJ standing there with

no head, and blood gushing everywhere! It's definitely a funny glitch to

see. Even dying in single player, and being brought back to the hospital,

won't bring your head back. Driving around in your car makes blood leak

everywhere as well!

swims around, and pulls out CJ. CJ will fall out and go to the bottom of the

water, and will be able to walk around on the bottom, use weapons, etc,

anything you could normally do on land.

Alternate method: First, activate 2 player mode and find a boat. Both

players should hop onto the back of the boat. Now, kiss by hitting L1 and

--- [Collect Oysters With Jetpack] ---

Works On: PlayStation2 [Yes] XBox [Yes] PC [Yes]

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

--- [Get More Gang Areas] ---

Description: This is definitely one of the weirdest/coolest glitches in a GTA

game. To do this, you'll need to have gang territories available to be taken

over. Hop in a plane or boat, 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 (real time) in that distance. Now, hop out, and drown yourself.


You'll end up back at a hospital. Now, check your map. Most people find at

least 12 new territories around San Andreas. 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 75% after doing this glitch. It seems to

be random on how many new ones you get, so if anyone has done some testing on

what territories you get flying in what direction, please email me. Also, it

changes how long you fly in the distance... so the longer the fly the more

territories you might get. If you'd like to read about a lot of people's

findings, the original topic (with some low quality pics) is here:


It seems the optimum time people have figured out is 3 hours (real life

time). You can also check how many new ones you've gotten without killing

yourself by just pausing the game and checking the stats menu.

--- [Walk on Air] ---

Description: Take a helicopter to the red bridge in the northwest corner of

the map. Fly over the road block and towards the first set of pillars. Get

to the second highest vertical bar, and go towards the two pillars. You

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

bullet mark, there is still solid ground there.

Note: You can only do this before you've unlocked Las Venturas. After, it

seems the invisible plane to walk on disappears.

--- [Mountain Bike Morph] ---

Description: Go to the top of Mount Chiliad and hop on the Mountain Bike. If

you don't have a parachute in your inventory, grab one behind the Journey

before getting on the bike. Once you're on, the Chiliad Challenge race will

start. Ride to your left instead of on the track, and go over the cliff.

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

stunt off the cliff, and then being morphed back up to where you start.

--- [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

Lemmings Easter Egg. However, to me it seems such an arbitrary place, and

performs more like a glitch than an easter egg. Think what you'd like

you'll see a pedestrian fly up the pole, then fall down the pole. Sometimes

they die, sometimes they live.

Description: Go to the Import/Export Crane and grab the Forklift in the small

garage, just south of the crane. Drive the Forklift out and then operate the

crane, and hook the magnet up to the Forklift. Make sure you let out all the

slack in the line before re-entering the Forklift. Now, drive the Forklift

away from the crane until you start to lift in the air. Turn to the side now

so that only one side of the car is on the ground, and the other is in the

air. When you'd like to stop getting the two wheel bonus, just drive

forwards so both wheels come down again. I went for 187 seconds myself, but

you can go for as long as you'd like. This picture shows me after I did a

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.

Description: Hop on a BMX bike, and make sure your cycling stats are maxed

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

--- [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!

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.

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

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,

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

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.

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

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.

--- [sky High Drop] ---

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

parachute when you try this!

-----------[8.A Unique Vehicles]----------

--- [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

into your garage, kill Catalina to fail the mission. Otherwise, the car might

--- [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.

--- [bP/FP/EP Savanna] ---

Special Qualities: Bulletproof, Fireproof, Explosion Proof

During Mission: High Stakes, Low-Rides (Cesar)

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.

Special Qualities: Bulletproof, Fireproof, Explosion Proof

During Mission: Farewell My Love...

Instructions: To obtain this vehicle that Woozie drives, start the mission,

and force Woozie off the cliff into the water near the start of this race,

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

turn around, his car will reappear on the road. Sometimes it'll drive off,

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.

then you can save it in the garage.

--- [bP Tanker] ---

Special Qualities: Bulletproof

During Mission: Tanker Commando

Instructions: When instructed to jump in the tanker, do so, then jump out and

blast Catalina to fail mission, jump back into tanker, and drive to a garage.

Note: There are only 2 garages big enough to store the Tanker this early in

the game, the one near Cesars in Verdant Bluffs and the garage in Santa Maria

--- [FP Blade] ---

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.

bridges heading to Las Venturas. Now, go underground to the parking garage.

One of the first cars you'll see is a Police car with its hood up. You can

drive this around, even at full speed, and the hood won't fall off. Weird.

-----------[8.B Other]----------

--- [Locked Cars] ---

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!

Found by: Neil Turner

--- [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".


10. Tips [TS01]


-----------[10.A General Tips]----------

--- [What to Mod at Wheels Arch Angels] ---

Description: Because the Wheels Arch Angels shop is designed for sports cars

only, it is sometimes a pain to go there only to find out your car can't be

modded there. However, just remember, that any car that spawns inside of

Wang's Automotives can be taken to the Wheels Arch Angels mod shop and be

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.


11. Special Items [sI01]


-----------[11.A Items]----------

--- [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.

-----------[11.B 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.

-----------[12.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: http://gtadomain.gtagaming.com/tagmap.html

--- [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: http://gtadomain.gtagaming.com/photos.html

--- [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.

-----------[12.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. 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.

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.

--- [Criminal Rankings] ---

Here's a list of all the criminal rankings, and when you attain each. You'll

see, listed at the bottom, about how the whole system works. Huge thanks

goes out to blaze8888888, who tested all of them and sent it to me. Thanks

to Diego S as well, who sent in the negatives and max/mins.

How they work:

[ ] $5,000 = 1 point

[ ] 1 Mission Complete = 5 points

[ ] 1 Cheat = -10 points

[ ] 1 person killed = 1 point

[ ] 1 Plane/Helicopter, etc. blown up = 30 points

[ ] 1 Busted/Wasted = -3 points

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

--- [Pilot Rankings] ---

I'm trying to find an ACCURATE list of numbers to accompany the list here,

that says how long you must fly. Also, 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). Also, 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)!

Well there are many other threads speaking of the same thing. I'm not going to read all of that anyway, even if I hadn't played San Andreas before, too long :P
