Secrets List

Easy health
Dial "911" on your cell phone. You will reach a voice menu. Dial "2" for an ambulance. When the ambulance arrives, the paramedic will restore your health for approximately $1,000. After he refills your health, kill him to get your money back.

Easily lower wanted level
If you want to get rid of your wanted level, simply start a mission. Your wanted level will instantly go away. If there were any police cars chasing you, the police will be gone but the cars will still be there.

Quick repair
While in a vehicle, if you drive over a health pack, your health will be restored and any damage to your car will fully repaired. This is very useful while playing online in a vehicle that has caught fire.

Fast travel
To avoid wasting time driving all the way across the city, call a taxi. They will take you to your destination for your mission, stores, safe houses, or even a waypoint marker. You can skip through the taxi ride, allowing you to travel across the entire city in about ten seconds. This can also be done during missions.

Easy Assassin's missions
Most of the Assassin's missions can be completed easier by using a helicopter. Land on a high position overlooking your target, and use the sniper rifle to kill them.

Easy headshots
It is sometimes difficult to get headshots, which do count. With some practice, doing the following is an easy way to get headshots. Press [Auto-Aim], then use the Right Analog-stick to move the auto-aim target around your victim's body. Barely move the Right Analog-stick as you are shooting. This puts bullets in the chest and head, and results in an easy instant kill.

Easy drive-by shootings
When you can, call Roman, and have him send a taxi to you. Let the taxi drive you around. You will be able to shoot at people without the driver stopping. He will also run past the cops and blockades as much as possible. When you get stuck, choose to end your ride at a destination without a wanted level.

Easy emergency vehicles
Dial "911" on your cell phone. You will reach a voice menu that allows you to call the police by dialing "1", an ambulance by dialing "2", or a fire truck by dialing "3". Select the vehicle of your choice, and wait for them to arrive. They will stop and look around for the emergency, allowing you to easily steal their vehicle.

Getting away from police
When running away from the cops, you will have a circular area in which they look for you. However, if you get out and another cop sees you, it changes. To use this to your advantage, barely get out of that circle, which you will see on your radar. Then, just sit there for about five seconds instead of flooring past it.

No wanted level when arrested
When you are being arrested by a cop, instead of pressing X immediately, press L3 to crouch. You will still be able to walk away, but you will not get a two star wanted level.

Calling for backup
Steal a police car, and any time you are in trouble, press L1 while your car is stationary. Select "Call For Backup", and within minutes you will have two cruisers full of police who will fight on your side unless you shoot someone. Note: They will turn on you when they realize you are not a cop.

Killing pedestrians without fighting
You can kill most pedestrians by repeatedly running into them against walls. This is a good way to get easy money without alerting the police.

Free internet access
Some of your safehouses have a computer in them that will not charge the $1 fee. The Algonquin safehouse has a laptop in it, and is somewhat far away from some of the internet cafes.

Free health boost
Enter an ambulance to get a small health increase.

Free shotgun shells
Enter a police cruiser to get five shotgun shells.

Carbine rifle
Use a helicopter, boat, or simply swim to reach Happiness Island. Go inside the first door of the Statue Of Happiness. There will be a security guard with a carbine rifle. Kill him to get the Carbine rifle.

Getting Desert Eagle early
To get the Desert Eagle before you can buy it, kill the gun salesman in Broker that has it equipped, and then take it from him. Note: Doing this will prevent you from making any future purchases at this location. This will also cause bodyguards with shotguns to chase after you.

M-4 assault rifle
Go to the Easton area in Algonquin. At the Grand Easton Terminal, go up the stairs in front. Keep going around that floor until you see a small pond. Move past it until you see a turn going left. Go to the left to get in between a tall building and a smaller one. At the end of the passageway is a dead end. Turn and you will see a glowing orange garbage can. Behind it is an M-4 assault rifle.

Getting pistol and shotgun early
The following is an easy way to start the game with full pistol and shotgun ammo. Unlock the ability to save by sleeping on the bed in Roman's home. Getting the knife is also helpful. Go outside Roman's home, and kill a few people. The police will appear. Kill a police officer. He will drop his gun. Take it, then immediately run into Roman's home, and sleep on the bed. You can choose to save the game if desired. When you wake up, your wanted level will be down, and you will still have the pistol. Go back outside, and kill more pedestrians. When the cops appear, run up the stairs. Turn around at the top of the stairs, and face the door going outside of Roman's home. The cops will come through that door, and you can simply pick them off with your new pistol. Watch your health, and do not worry about picking up the guns. If your health gets low, you can sleep on the bed. Wake up, and when you go outside there will be lots of weapons. The shotgun will take longer because not every cop uses it. However, if you enter the police cars that have been abandoned outside the apartments, you can easily get five shells for the shotgun for each car you enter.

Getting Remington shotgun early
You can get the good shotgun early in the game by simply going to the strip club. On the way out, there is a manager's office that you can enter. There is a large Remington shotgun on the floor you can take.

Store cars in burnt down garage.
After Roman's house in Broker burns, you can still use the "garage" in it. Also even if you
choose to Kill Dwayne

you can still store cars in Playboy X's house garage.

Ghost biker
mission you do for phill where you can go underneath the basement or go directly into an abandon factory. You can have access to both afterwords. A couple of weeks ago, a poster on this board stated if you went in that factory later, you would see the subtitles "Pleeaaase Leeaave" but you cannot hear anything.
Lots of people have been calling this a "ghost" but it is in fact a random biker trapped inside the factory!
Go in, wandered around and no subtitles appears. So go back out, shoot the door open and heard "YOU ARE OUTTA HERE" in the background. That also appeared on the Subtitles. wait a few moments and the door will bang open, go around and check and you should see there a random Biker shooting at you with a pistol!
Don't know why he was randomly in there and decided to attack but more to the point, why was his dialouge on the subtitles too? What is so important about him?

-Black_Hayate

There's an RPG in an island north of Algonquin, reachable by helicopter with enough ground to land and take off again.

Well, you know the mission with Phil where you can go underneath the basement or go directly into an abandon factory? You can have access to both afterwords. A couple of weeks ago, a poster on this board stated if you went in that factory later, you would see the subtitles "Pleeaaase Leeaave" but you cannot hear anything.

I went in, wandered around and no subtitles appeared. So I went back out, shot the door open and heard "YOU ARE OUTTA HERE" in the background. That also appeared on the Subtitles. 2 minutes later, I heard the door bang open, so I went round to check and there was a random Biker shooting at me with a pistol!

I don't know why he was randomly in there and decided to attack me but more to the point, why was his dialouge on the subtitles too? What is so important about him?

Another place with free internet access is Playboy X's House lobby.

I don't know if this should go here but here it goes:
After Roman's house in Broker burns, you can still use the "garage" in it. Also even if you

you can still store cars in Playboy X's house garage.

Well i don't know if you want to add this or not.
But a quicker way of getting up big sets of stairs is to Jump while walking up them.
I think its abit of a glitch.

He isn't trapped inside the factory, he isn't randomly shooting you, he isn't important. He's the bouncer from Honkers. He shot at you because you fired your gun that close to the club. If you fire your gun anywhere that close to the club, he'll come after you. If you don't believe me, go fire off a couple rounds in the middle of the street in front of the factory. You should see him run towards you from the club and open fire on you.

More proof of this is that he'll usually be wearing a jacket that says "Crew" on the back of it, like the other bouncers at Honkers.
