50 ways to die in Grand Theft Auto IV

During the making of our huge catalogue of GTA IV video guides, to add to the frustration of having to produce perfect insane jumps against a deadline and shoot every damn pigeon on the map in half a day, we also had to contend with the inconvenience of Niko's mortality.

The general rule is: the harder you try to do a task under pressure, the more likely Niko will find himeslf at the end of a spectacularly unlucky and painful demise. So we've dredged up our favourite snuff clips from the hours of raw footage and edited them together for sicko comedy value in the video below - subtitle: The Orgy Of DEATHZ!!!

    Most impressive thing I've seen in any GTA game was when me and a friend drove a motorbike all the way up the stairs of one of those X shaped towers that you can enter. Well, we got to the top and we drove the bike off the edge (him driving and me on the back) and what happened next blew my mind for at least five weeks. I got off half way down and instead of falling, my character sort of slingshotted off into the sky. My body landed on Happiness island. If only I recorded it for more proof. T'was utterly amazing.

    I see nothing wrong with Niko's morality, which is something you guys indeed lack. Plus, that's what sets him apart from any other GTA protagonist. Funny video, nonetheless.

    stroypa you whiny bitch, you were still entertained, weren't you? Besides, if you fall of a helicopter and land on a TRAIN, it definitely sounds different than falling on pavement. Thus, another kind of death. The editing tho... holy shit you guys. That must've taken some time to do that. xD 3 Thumbs up for that!

    the name is a little missleading. i was expecting 50 different types of death but most were repeated but just in a different situation

    omg, is niko a zombie or something! I mean, 100 of those and he still ends up at a hospital and never dies! Freaky..... Or maybe he is dead! Like that Remember Me book, he doesn't realize he's dead..... O_o sorry, just had to mention that. I like seeing him get murdered

    I jumped out of a helicopter, skimmed along some buildings, landed on some grass and lived :)

    In Saints Row 2, if you base jump in a Snipes 57 with the wings tilted up, you hit yourself and fall to your death.

PURE AWESOMENESS. Rathial dude that's freaky. Bloori . I've been thinking the same thing. I think I'm going to go play GTA right now.

    I must have suffered the most Epic death of all when, whilst casually strolling through a park, Mr. Bellic decided to simply emit an almighty 'Deathshriek'(tm) and proceed to drop dead, for apparently no reason whatsoever. No Blood, nothing. Just an untimely, unexpected and wholly undeserved demise. Legendary, and massively amusing to boot.

    i liked the LOTR 3 reference.... you know where they throw him out from the building while he's on fire. awesome

    does anyone know about the swingset of death? its a glitch that if performed properly will send your lifeless husk of a body halfway across the entire map. Seriously!
