New info. Strange.
Hey guys, what happened to the gas caps on the cars. I do not see them anymre, giving that info, what about this?

Ok get this, I was driving in my car the other day, just pulled out of the car wash with my Futo GT spec, and I was turning right to get on the road, this dumb bitch in a four door beater hits me and keeps going, so i give chase, after shooting her four times in the rear end of the car, the car exploded. I am not bullshitting because I would not lie about what happened in a video game. Wtf happened. I have never made a car explode from gunfire, she was in front of me, so i couldnt of accidentally dropped a nade.:confused:

Can't say it's ever happened to me. I've shot many, MANY cars from the rear. The most I get out of it is the flames shooting up from the rear wheels. But I've seen some crazy shit happen in GTA: IV. Who knows.

I've never experienced this either, but I will experiment. + Rep for the Futo GT spec!:cool:

thanks for rep man, and yeah i love the FUTO GT its a sick car, something different for a change rather then the average 100 thousand dollar sports car, i like my lil rice rocket, so much fun to drive around, and i love the exaust. but on topic, dont know how it happened, but all the sudden one of my bullets blew up the car, and she couldnt of been on fire, cuz it was bout my 5th final bullet from a handgun.

danhex. There's a weak spot on all vehicles. There's a little area behind the rear wheels. I think it simulates shooting the gas tank. Shooting here will cause cars to become engulfed in flames after just a few shots. That's why when a car is about to blow, most of the time there are flames shooting out of that area of the car.

Happy car jacking!

Usally, when Im sppeding through Manhatten, I T-Bone a car towards the rear, and it right away becomes engulfed in flames.

its happened to me before to, your not alone. lol
like dokujitsu said theres probably a weak spot.
if you ram a car hard enough in the rear, in the right spot it will blow too

JRussell89 08-05-2008 04:54 AM

It is a weak spot. I messed around and the car caught on fire then exploded.

This happened in the True Crime games whenever you shot at a gas tank. It hasn't happened to me in this game, however there is a place near the airport where you can go flying off a cliff (it's near the Burger Shot; make sure your car barely hits the part of the fence that's twsted) and your car will explode if it lands on the roof.

In true crime, you shoot just under the license plate and BAM!

But i noticed if im going really fast and ram a car head on, the driver will first catch fire, get out start stumbling, then die, and then the car's rear wheels will catch fire and the engine also, then the car will explode.

wwecruz 08-05-2008 02:34 PM

I've always wondered how that happened. ^^^
