3. Also, if you change your appearance, you cannot pick up any "shirt icons" (at Rafael's, Laundromat, Collars and Cuffs, etc.) or the game will freeze. You cannot change into a pedestrian costume while in a vehicle or in a special outfit (you must get "street" clothes).
4. The women will drop guns when they are killed.
5. Aim your gun at someone and they will attack your target.
6. To increase the effect of this code, enable it, go to the pause menu, select "Load Game", choose any game, then enable the code again and repeat as desired.
7. Press [Shift] when this code is enabled to jump.

Change vehicle physics:
Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "handling.cfg" file in the "grandtheftautovicecity\data\" folder. You can change the volocity of the bikes, cars, boats, helicopters, and airplanes in the game.

Hint: Quick reload:
When you run out of your clip, roll the mouse wheel up, then roll it back down quickly. The weapon you were using will already be reloaded.

Hint: Stoppie bonuses:
It is possible to get up to 150 second stoppie bonuses with this trick. First, get a moped and drive to where there is a long, straight stretch of road. Press [Keypad 9] to lean forward, then use the brake. While you are doing a basic stoppie, release the brake and press the gas (while still holding [Keypad 9]). You should be able to "drive" on your one wheel for a long time. Note: You cannot turn or do anything else.

Hint: Wheelie bonuses:
It is possible to get up to 500 second wheelie bonuses with this trick. You will need either need a moped or a dirt bike. With a dirt bike, drive then do a wheelie. When you do the wheelie, you would normally hold the gas and [Keypad 6]. Instead of holding those until you flip over, get a pretty big wheelie then release the gas while still holding [Keypad 6]. If you are traveling at the correct speed, the dirt bike will keep doing a wheelie without the need for your to press the gas. To keep your momentum, tap the brake or the gas. With a moped, you need to listen to the sound. Start to do a wheelie and when you hear scraping sounds on the road, release the gas then quickly press it again before you go down to the ground. Try to keep letting the gas off and pressing the gas until the scrapping sound stops and you should be doing a steady wheelie.

Hint: Full rotation trick spot:
Start at the Hyman Condo. It helps if you have saved the game there with a PCJ 600 in the garage. Drive south very fast, past the V-Rock building. You should see a ramp on the left leading up to the "1412" building (across the street from the Love Fist tour banner). Aim your speeding motorcycle onto the ramp and hit the outer stone edge of it, somewhere between the first and second palm (where there are bushes). Try to aim your motorcycle so that you land in the street. If done correctly, this will launch the motorcycle into the air rotating, and with some practice you will be able to pull off complete rotations to where you can land and continue driving.

Glitch: Unlimited pistol ammunition:
Go to the Ammu-Nation in Downtown. Enter the back room and keep doing the target challenge. You will notice that every time you complete it, your pistol ammunition will go up. Eventually, there will be no ammo or amount left in the clip shown under the pistol. Note: This trick can only be done with the regular pistol, and not the revolver.

Glitch: Fixed hood, trunk, and doors:
Find any vehicle and have brass knuckles, a bat, or empty hand. Hit either the hood, trunk, or doors two hits for each piece, them get in the car. Press [F1] for a replay then press [F1] to exit the replay. The doors, hood, and trunk will be perfect but open while driving. If you hit anything three times, it will fall off and when driving fast the front hood will fly off.

Glitch: Driver's door stuck open:
Enable the thugstools code, then get in front of anyone's vehicle. Use the Ruger to shoot their head off then get in passenger side. You cannot shut the driver's door unless you punch it off or get out of vehicle.

Glitch: Tire tracks in mid-air:
Steal a Packer and back cars up its ramp. Sometimes you will see tire tracks in mid-air. To find a Packer, go onto the tarmac behind the Escobar International Airport Terminal.

Glitch: Fall through game:
Take a bike, preferably the PCJ 600, to Washington Beach. Go to one of the outpost huts and place the bike facing the steps. Move backwards until you have enough distance to get some real speed. Once you have done this, drive towards the steps and try to fly over them. If done correctly, when you hit them you will get the "Greetings From Vice City" screen, then see yourself falling through the ground seemingly to nowhere. However, eventually you will return to the ground in a far away area.

Glitch: Stand underwater:
Take any sports car with tires that do not become big (for example, the Banshee). Enable the loadsoflittlethings code then drive straight into the water. If you land on a rock, you can get out of the car and stand underwater without getting wasted. If you do not land on a rock ,you will feel as if you are going endlessly down nowhere, but will land far away.

Glitch: Easy Insane Stunt bonus:
When you get the car that resembles an older Corvette, enable the seaways code. Drive into the ocean, and the car will not float. It will go down under and remain there for awhile. After a few seconds, the car will respwan on the road. The game will give you lots of money, thinking that you did an Insane Stunt.

Glitch: Extended wheelies:
Use the following trick to get wheelies that last as long as desired. It may work with any motorcycle, but was performed with a PCJ 600. Drive down to the Viceport Docks area. :ook for the trucks that look like huge mobile ramps (they are also at the airport). There is one parked in the parking lot two blocks south of the Pay 'N' Spray there if you cannot find any driving around. Drive up the ramp of the truck carefully and slowly until the front wheel goes over the edge and you are balancing with your back wheel still on the ramp. Do not drive forward too far. Then, sit back for as long as desired. When you are ready, start driving forward or backward again. Note: Some rocking back and forth may be needed to get out of that position. If done correctly, the game should give you a very low money bonus (because the distance is usually only about four to seven feet), but your "Longest Wheelie Time" stat should make up for that. Note: This will only work when the bridges are opened, of course.


Note: Button presses are described in PlayStation2 version format. Use the equivalent key on the PC keyboard when playing that version.

Downtown: Secret rooftop hideout:
Go to the Greasy Choppers Bike Club. Go north about a half block. On the left hand side is a building with stairs (going over a gun that you can obtain). Go up the stairs to the roof to find a shack that can be used to store any motorcycle-class vehicle, etc. It only costs $1,000.

Downtown: Molotov cocktails:
Go to where the Hyman Condo is located and go past the save point. Follow the alley until it reaches the street. Across the street you will see a restaurant named Tacocalypse. Enter the outdoor eating area and turn left to find the Molotov cocktail.

Downtown: Drowned man:
Go off the coast to the east of the Greasy Chopper to see man in swimming trunks that drowned due to a brick tied to him.

Downtown: Dead turtle:
Go off the coast to the east of the Greasy Chopper to see a dead turtle.

Downtown: Extra trick money:
Get a Sanchez motorcycle go near the Hyman condos. While on the Sanchez, face the door that leads to the roof of the Hyman condos at an angle. Try to wall ride on the side of the door by holding the wheelie (Down) and pressing the gas fully. If you do wall ride and warp to the top of the condo, you will get a trick worth $195 compared to a normal ten second wheelie getting nowhere near that much.

Buy the Hyman Condo and go to the rooftop with a Sanchez or a PCJ 600. Go very fast and make a left turn where the long part of the roof is located. Do a wheelie immediately before you hit the rail. You should go up in the air and spin like crazy. It is possible to get over 1500 degrees of rotation and over $250.

Downtown: Easter Egg:
Go on top on the VCN building, onto the helipad. The fourth window in from the right will be an invisible wall. Get to the corner of the helipad and jump inside to find an Easter Egg. If you did not fall through, you are at the wrong window.

Downtown: Huge explosion:
Go to the dirt bike track. Get on the parked dirt bike, start the mission, but do not move. Wait for the three Cubans to appear and kill them. Take their bikes and put them where the original dirt bike was located. Repeat until you are satisfied with the amount of bikes there. Note: Fail the mission first, then get back on the bike -- no more Cubans will appear if you do not do this. Get far enough away not to die then either throw a Molotov cocktail or a grenade at them, or shoot one until it catches on fire. This will cause a chain reaction that will cause a enormous explosion (and give you wanted stars).

Downtown: Death at the tracks:
At Hyman Memorial Stadium, enter in the Hotring Racer event. Instead of racing, park your car at a safe location (such as on top of higher ground next to the pit stop). You can exit the car and shoot drivers coming around. The race will not end until you have completed twelve laps or have exited the event. Note: Explosives and flames will not damage any other race car.

Downtown: Ronald Reagan poster:
In the PlayStation2 version, go to the Ammu-Nation. Go straight, never turning, through the door until you hit the wall. Then, look to your left to see the counter that has mannequin heads with helmets on them. Jump on the mannequin heads (not just the counter because you need all the height you can get), then face and touch the wall. Barely tilt the Analog-stick Down so that Tommy's back is now facing the wall and still, if not barely touching the wall. Equip the rocket launcher hold R1 to enter aiming mode. Turn around so that you are facing the wall again, and look slightly up. You should see a Ronald Reagan poster where he is holding a Colt .45 besides a person with bullet holes.

Downtown: Project Gotham Racing reference:
Enter Hyman Memorial Stadium. In the Hotring Racing inside the dome, there are various billboards. One of them says "Earn Money Not Kudos," referring to the points you earn in Project Gotham Racing.

Escobar International Airport: Easy money:
To get a large amount of money in a short time, get the Rhino Tank from Fort Baxter Air Base. Drive it to Escobar International Airport. Once there, activate the Vigilante missions. Almost all of the chases will take place on the airstrip. They appear one behind the other and can just be rammed with the tank or fired on. It is possible to get to level 66 in vigilante mode with 760 kills and $5,000,000 in about a half hour. If you get stars, drive to Sunshine Autos, and jump into a car, then drive into the Pay 'N' Spray. You should have a large amount of mission time to drive there and back to the airport with no problems.

Escobar International Airport: Rampage and hidden package:

The rampage requires you to blow up ten vehicles, You can do this easily by enabling the "Destroy cars" code.

Escobar International Airport: Enter airport with weapons:
When facing the airport building, go through the gate to the left that leads into the runway area. Follow the airport building itself around as far as you can and still have a window to your right. The last airport window is fashioned into the cement of the building, but there is just enough space for you to walk up to the outside portion of it.

Because you are wearing the uniform, you will be allowed to enter with all of your weapons. However, as you pass in and out of the metal detector, your range of firepower will be waiting outside. Keep doing this for awhile and you will have all the ammunition needed.

Escobar International Airport: Rocket launcher:
On the long drive to the airport, there is a short left turn into the Hooker Inn hotel. There is a rocket launcher in the pool there.

Press Up + Square + Hand Brake. When you have gotten your back wheel off of the ground, release Square and push the gas. If you drift to one way, very slightly turn the same way and ride it out as far as you can go. If done correctly, you can get well over 2000 feet and lots of money. It is very tricky, but you can do a wheelie about the same distance at the same place with the Faggio.

Starfish Island: Erotic poster and pictures:
After you have completed the InterGlobal Films missions, go back to your mansion on Starfish Island. There will be erotic pictures of Candy Suxxx on the desk in your office, along with a poster on the wall of her from behind.

Starfish Island: New rooms in mansion:
After you complete the Rub-Out mission and obtain Diaz's mansion, there are two secret rooms that you can now access with weapons and health/armor. The first is the minibar next to the main entrance of your new mansion. The second is on the lowest floor where the staircases are located (pool level). This room is next to the exit to the pools. It is easy to miss, but look for it. It is in a corner before you turn to the stairs going up.

Starfish Island: Trophies:
When you complete the three events at the Hyman Memorial Stadium, go to your mansion. In the first room to the right (above the television), you will now have three trophies; one with a dirt bike, one with a star on top, and one that reads "Vice City Champion 1986".

Starfish Island: Love Fist gas cans:
Go to your mansion and enter the main office after completing the Love Fist missions. Look on one of the tables to find two Love Fist gas cans, marked "Hot N Sticky".

Starfish Island: RC helicopter box:
In the new room of your mansion (next to the main entrance with the minibar and a television), is a box for an RC helicopter, as if it were a child's toy.

Starfish Island: Hunter box:
After you have acquiring all 100 hidden packages and completing the final mission (Keep Your Friends Close), go into the Vercetti mansion. Go into the bar and turn to your left. You will then see a pistol weapon. Under the pistol, you will see more trash. Look closely at the cover of the box to see the Hunter helicopter you can get from Fort Baxter Air Base.

Starfish Island: Defaced Diaz painting:
After you complete the Rub-Out mission, go upstairs and look to the right on the wall outside of Tommy's office. The painting of Diaz has been drawn on with a marker. Someone drew a pair of glasses and a few other things on it.

Starfish Island: Scarface reference:
In the "preparing for war" scene in Scarface, the camera pans away from his surveillance system and the middle television shows the main room in which all the bloodshed takes place. This is the same picture used on every screen in Tommy's room at his mansion. It is also on every screen at El Banko Corrupto, in their security room.

Starfish Island: Enter early:
To get to Starfish Island without completing the missions, get a fast motorcycle (not a moped). Go to the Starfish bridge and floor it through the tiny hole used by bridge pedestrians. Wreck at the gate and the game should put you on Starfish Island.

Spawn a Sabre Turbo and drive very fast on the bridge to Starfish Island. Keep going when you see the gate. You should get your car stuck half in the gate. Keep pushing on the gas, and when you stop moving hit reverse. You should finally get through the gate.

Starfish Island: Good stunts:
Get a Sanchez or a fast car and go to the Vercetti Mansion. Drive up the big set of stairs leading to the door. Go off the side of the stairway while doing a wheelie (with the Sanchez). You can sometimes get 1200 degrees and six flips.

Vice Point: Grand Theft Auto screens:
In the North Point Mall, go into the Tarbrush Cafe. Go behind the counter and take a look at the registers. You will find screens from the original Grand Theft Auto.

Enter the pizza restaurant to find more Grand Theft Auto screens. Apparently throughout the game, some store registers have the screens.

Vice Point: Katana:
In the North Point Mall, go into the Tarbrush Cafe. Go into the back room to find the katana.

Vice Point: North Point Mall shootout:
Get to the North Point Mall, then enable any desired "Weapons" code. Walk around the mall. You will soon hear shooting and notice DPB security guards in a standoff somewhere with the gang clad in jeans and vests, (your opponents in Phnom Pehn '86). Assist the gang members, as they will not shoot you after the battle is over, like DBP. You can then either look for more fights, or shoot one of the officers coming near you. Get to a four star or higher wanted level. In the center of the mall's bottom floor is a row of bushes. Take out a shotgun or assault rifle. Begin to fire. Cops will jump through the shrubs and get slaughtered as they cross. This is effective for about a minute, or until ten to twelve cops have been shot. The police with then attempt to surround you. Use police bribes, get killed, caught, or use a code to remove your wanted level.

Vice Point: Meat cleaver:
Go to the pizza shop walk around the back. Look to the northwest corner to find a meat cleaver.

Vice Point: Easy money:
To get an easy $200 to $300, go to North Point Mall and follow a police officer until he begins chasing someone. Attack that person with your fists (no brass knuckles -- you gain more money without them) to get $50 for every punch you throw. Be sure not to hit the police officer.

Go to the North Point mall at the far end of town (from the hideout). Find The Gap and the CD store. Rob the CD store by aiming at the clerk with auto aim. Wait until you get only one star. When he sets the alarm off you will get another star. Then, run to The Gap and get a change of clothes. The stars will go away. You can rob the CD store clerk again. If he is not there, go downstairs at The Gap and rob that clerk, going back and forth. This saves you a trip to the CD store just to find out that the clerk is on break.

Go to the North Point Mall. Lock on to almost any shop owner with a gun. Hold it until you get three stars. He will give you about $1,000.

Vice Point: Cheap hideout:
Go across the street and to the north of North Point Mall to find a house that can be bought for $2,500.

Vice Point: RC Baron Race:
Get in the Toy Fun Van on the top of the parking garage next to the mall to start the RC Baron Race, in which you will fly RC planes across the island.

Vice Point: RC Bandit Race:
Get in the Toy Fun Van near the dirt bike track.

Vice Point: Village People:
The Village People perform inside the Malibu Club. Dicing them up with a chainsaw is very cathartic.

Vice Point: Malibu Club massacre:
Get some Molotov cocktails and a shotgun or another strong weapon that can wipe out the police in one shot. Enter the Malibu Club and stand at the entrance. Toss a Molotov cocktail into the center of the dance floor. The whole place will go up in flames. Exit the Malibu Club. Come back in and the people should be dancing again. The security guards will be after you. Take out your shotgun and kill them. Take out a sniper rifle, go to the bar, and snipe the bartenders. Kill the security guard that is blocking the stairway and go up. There may be a few more bouncers that may need to be taken out. Once up there, take out your sniper rifle. Zoom in on the people dancing on the stage and kill them. Then, either use a grenade or rocket launcher to blow up everyone in the club.

Go to the Washington Beach police station, get the tear gas, then go to the Malibu Club. Get to the center of the dance floor, throw them all, then run up to a table or the bar just far enough to get out of their range. Turn around and might be able to see a few of them die. They will create one large thump because it kills them all at the same time, while only giving you a one star wanted level. Note: Throwing them in the club nearly causes the game to freeze and makes it lag terribly until the gas clears.

Vice Point: Dancing policemen:
Go to the Malibu Club. Go upstairs and shoot down on people. Get a two or more stars on your wanted level then use the "Lower wanted level" code. Go back down and you will now see the policemen dancing with people.

Vice Point: Big explosion:
Go to the gas station in Washington Beach. There will be gas tanks here. Throw a detonate grenade at one and run. Detonate it and it will cause a big explosion.

Vice Point: Scarface reference:
The Malibu Club is based on the Babylon club in Scarface.

Vice Point: New bartender:
If you own the Malibu Club, look at the female bartender behind the counter in the back. If you look closely, she is topless except for a plus sign as used for censoring.

Later in the game when buy the Malibu Club, go inside and you will see a pink mission circle. Do not go in it. Instead, go out and do a few other missions by purchasing other properties. Go back to the Malibu Club and the bartender will be replaced by an almost naked woman who follows you just in the club. She gives flying kisses to you and hands out bottles of beer.

Vice Point: Sniper location:
Go to the location of "The Chase" mission (apartment in Vice Point). Go to the rooftop where you chased the man. When you reach the first crack, drop into the gap. You are now in a good location for killing, where you cannot get busted.

From the Malibu Club, go north on the main road until you see an apartment complex on your left. It is directly north of the road after you pass the Malibu Club's parking lot. Once there, go up the stairs and face the road. Keep shooting people from here. The weapons of choice are the machine gun with the manual aim or the Colt Python.

Vice Point: Tear gas:
Look behind the police station where the cop uniform is located to find tear gas.

Vice Port: Flame thrower:
There is a flame thrower near 8-Ball's place. Before you turn into it, go south near the wall to find it.

Vice Port: Dead dolphin:
Get a boat and take it somewhere between Escobar International Airport and the docks. Do not go past the two big ships docked there -- stay west of them. Just west of the two big ships around the shoreline is a dead dolphin, just floating there. It does not move, and just floats around. Do not try to jump on it, as you will fall through.

Vice Port: 8-Ball's bomb shop:
Go to the Pay 'N' Spray in Vice Port down by the boat docks. To the left of it is an alley with a truck parked in front. Drive past the truck and when you reach a large opening, turn left near the end of the section (where the water starts). There will be some garages to your right. The second or third one has an 8-Ball sign above it, and a bomb will be put on your car.

Vice Port: Sunken ship:
To see sunken ship split in half, get any helicopter and fly to the Little Havana bridge. Get directly in the middle of it and fly straight south. When you see a big rock and three floating platforms, go slightly to the right and a big tanker will appear under the water. The writing on the side reads "Quartered Libertine Lines".

Take a sea Sparrow and fly it to where the three wooden houses are in the water. Go to the right of the one with no roof. There will be an underwater rock there. Next to it is a huge ship like the ones that are docked along the shipyard that you can climb on. If you keep following it, you will notice that it is broken in half.

Washington Beach: Cleaver:
You can find a cleaver behind the Well Stacked Pizza shop in Washington Beach.

Washington Beach: Shotgun:
Get a vehicle and drive along the trail at Washington Beach.

Washington Beach: Tear gas:
Tear gas can be found in the parking lot directly behind the Police Station in Washington Beach.

Washington Beach: Scarface reference and chainsaw:
Go to the gas station in Washington Beach, near the Mall. Do the stunt that goes up the white stairs onto a roof, then do the stunt that immediately follows afterwards. After that, you should be on the side of a street. There should be an apartment with two flight of stairs leading up, on the other side of the road. Go to the door on the right and enter the apartment. It is marked as apartment 3C. Go into the bathroom, which is almost identical to the classic chainsaw scene in the movie Scarface, with blood stains on the wall. There will also be a chainsaw in there.

Washington Beach: Phallic symbol:
Go to the Malibu Club and look around for a water tower. Once you have located it, look to the left of it. You will see a tall building next to it. Look closely at the top of the building. It will say "LANGER". Go to the parking lot directly across from the building and make sure you have a clear view of the front of the building. Once the game clock turns 23:00, lights will turn on, showing the form of a penis and two balls. At the top of the building, liquid will squirt out for a short time. When the game clock turns 24:00, the lights will change and this will no longer be visible.

Washington Beach: Aquatic life:
Go to the lighthouse near Ocean Beach to view some aquatic life. Once at the lighthouse, go out on the adjacent piers and use your first person view to scan the waters. Occasionally you can spot schools of fish, dolphin, sea turtles, and a large hungry shark. For more fun, wait on the pier and soon the people around you will start going crazy and jump into the water. None of them can swim, so the entire area becomes filled with floating corpses and shark food.

Washington Beach: Drowned man:
There is a man floating in the water with cement shoes, west of the hardware store. Go to the road that leads to star fish island and stop at the Machete. Go to the left of the arch and fall down to the walkway, then walk south on the sidewalk. Go as far south as possible. Just before the last jog south, look down into the water with the sniper rifle to find him.

Washington Beach: Ship silhouette:
Stand on the lighthouse and use a sniper rifle to look out towards the sea for boats. About 7 a.m. you can see a silhouette of a ship that resembles the icon for the classic game "Battleship". It will move across the screen a little bit then fade like a mirage.

Washington Beach: Rockstar logo:
Go to the lighthouse at night and look up. You should see some stars that seem to be in the pattern of the Rockstar logo. The star at the bottom of the "R" is brighter then the rest, symbolizing the star at the bottom of the logo.

Washington Beach: Sniping location:
Find the parking deck with the neon lining at the top. This is the parking deck with a Banshee and a PCJ 600. Walk up the stairs at the north side of the parking deck. At the top of the stairs, there should be a set of body armor. Turn to the right when you get to the top of the stairs. Jump onto the side of the building, go around the corner, then around the next one. Enable a weapons code to accumulate bazooka ammunition. Take out the bazooka and shoot the cops. You can fill out all six wanted stars here, and the only thing that can hurt you is the police chopper.

Submarine and cargo ship:
You can find a sunken ship and a submarine up north off the coast. The submarine is directly north of Ammu-Nation and The Tool Store at Vice Point Mall. The cargo ship is east of the submarine.

Note: The submarine is Soviet, as indicated by the red star on it.

Colonel Cortez's sunken yacht:
After you finish the Colonel's missions, continue the game until you are able to get a helicopter. Find the harbor on the third island and fly to the south of it. Look around and you should see an oddly colored object under the water. Switch to first person view while in the helicopter and press L2 + R2 at the same time to look beneath you. You should be able to see the Colonel's sunken ship.

Drowned man:
On the first island somewhere along the thin channel is a docked Dingy. Take it and go south until it opens up into the ocean. Make sure you can see the bottom along the left wall. As soon as it opens up. follow it and you will se a man at the bottom with his feet in a cement block.

Get to second island early:
Use the following trick to get to the second island without cheating, or having the "saving cheat and bad reputation" message. This trick requires a Coach, one other car, and $1,000. Take the Coach bus to the Marina (where Colonel Cortez's yacht is located). Drive very fast past his dock and go to the second one. The second dock has many boats. Ram into the tree that is next to the gate. The tree should shatter and disappear. Next, take the bus and line it up along side of the dock, facing out toward the water. Get the front wheels up on the ledge. Use your other car to push the Coach into the water. Once the bus is in the water, jump on top of it and walk towards the other end of the roof of the bus. The Coach will be long enough to allow you to bypass the locked gate and hop back onto the pier. Then, take a boat and drive it to the second island. To save your game, go the Skumole Shack just north of the Greasy Chopper bar. Use your $1,000 to buy it and save the game. Now that you are here, you can get the helicopter from the police station and go back and forth as needed.

Complete 100 taxi missions. Your taxi will now be equipped with hydraulics. Get into a taxi and go to the Marina. Go up to the far gate and line up with it. Reverse your taxi so you can get a run up. Accelerate towards the gate. Press L3 just before hitting it and your taxi will jump into the air and mysteriously fly through the gate. Once you are on the other side, get out of your taxi and get into one of the boats. You can now ride to the second island. Note: This may require a few attempts.

Go to the hospital at Ocean Beach. The bridge next to it is blocked off at the start of the game. On the right side there is a gap between two cement road barriers. Start at the last intersection before the bridge with a PCJ 600 and floor it. Aim directly at the gap between the two cement barriers on the right. You will pass right through them. This may require few attempts. You may also return through the same gap, but make sure you have enough speed.

Go to the northwest part of the island and look for a large white building with docks behind it. There should be a Cheetah next to the dock. Line it up diagonally to the dock with the front of the car pointing towards the opposite way of the road. Walk along the edge of the parking lot until you find a PEG 800 motorcycle. Get on the motorcycle and start driving straight towards the Cheetah. Before you hit it, do a wheelie, then bail immediately when you hit it. You will fly off and land on the dock. Then, jump in a boat and drive to the other island. This is very difficult and will probably require a few attempts.

Get a PCJ-600 or a Freeway bike. Drive up the ramp on the east street of Prawn Island and jump the ramps on the roof to get into Interglobal Films. You will find a Packer in the northeast corner of the lot. If you park the Packer at the correct angle and distance from the north wall, you will be able to jump your bike past the barricade and on the bridge. This will take a few attempts. The only way to return is by flying the police helicopter found north of the Greasy Chopper.

Jump on the railing of the Prawn Island Bridge. Wait for a boat to pass under it. Aim and jump. Repeat this until you actually manage to land in the boat. Note: The owner will jump into the water in a panic. Drive the boat to the other island.

Get to any locked area early:
In the PlayStation2 version, enable the "Dodo car" code and use any car. Go as fast as you can and press Analog-stick Back jump over the highest obstruction blocking the next section of the game. Keep repeating this until you get there.

Get a sniper rifle and find a place where boats are appearing. Wait until one is coming roughly straight at you, then take out the man piloting it with the rifle. If the boat was moving fast enough, it will coast up to you. You should be able to jump onto it. From there, you can get to almost anywhere. It may take awhile to find out good spots to try this. One recommended location is behind Diaz's mansion in the lawn behind the hedge maze.

Enable the "Cars float on water" code. Then, simply drive on the water to get to any island.

In the PlayStation2 version, while traveling at high speeds in an Infernus hit the gate the connects the both islands. If done correctly, you can go through the gate on the right side. Half of your vehicle will be on one side of the gate, and the other half will be on the other side. You can press Triangle to step outside your vehicle on the other side of the closed gate.
