Crackdown Easter Eggs

  • Rubber Duck

    Entry location: Ferris Wheel on Los Muertos island
    On the large ferris wheel on the Los Muertos controlled island, a rubber duck can be found in the very top carriage. It requires some nifty jumping and climbing to get up there though. Once on the top carriage, leap on to the star with the agility orb on it. A quick rotation of the camera will reveal this pointless, yet intriguing easter egg.

  • Safe Building Glitch

    Entry location: Farthest side of the beach
    On the Farthest side of the beach in Los Meurados, there is a larger than average hut. This hut should have neon signs on it. First grab a dune buggy from the agency garage and bring it here. Behind the building should be a steep ledge. Reverse you buggy into the ledge so that you front wheels are on the ground and back wheels are up the ledge. Once vertical, drive your buggy full speed under the hut. You should now be stuck under the building. Once stuck you press Y to get out and you will then find yourself in an impenetrable safe house. Nothing gets in, Nothing gets out.

  • Fast Strength

    The easiest way to get your strength up is to always kill by kicking. Just run up to the gang members and kick them. Especially against bosses they give you tons so just run up to them and kick them until they die.

  • Easy Driving High Achievement

    Entry location: Garcia Point
    Travel to the Garcia Point supply point in La Mugre, where Los Muertos are. Look to your left upon spawning and you'll see a slope. Go up and you should see a jeep. Get in it and drive to the edge of the cliff upwards. If you have not defeated Los Muertos yet, going up a small bit and between the feet of the statue will also nab the achievement.

  • How To Get Car Juggler Achivement

    First make sure you have cluster grenades ( you can find them in Shai-Gen) and a explosives skill of at least 3. Then go to the Volk and find an open space, and find one of the Volk gang cars, that are small and green, sometimes red. Blow the car up and make sure it has no wheels, so the main body is on the ground. Then standing about 10 feet away, and being about perfectly center with the BACK of the car, throw two cluster grenades, aiming the redical down at the ground in front of the back of the car, as fast as you can. If the grenades go under the car and the car goes spinning up in the air very far up, you've done it. It took me a few tries to do this, so you will probably mess up.

  • "Drive High" and Hangtime or Car Juggle

    Entry location: Shai-Gen
    Take the SUV to the tower in Shai-Gen that has the elevator, where you defeated the army general. You can drive your SUV right through the doors and into the lift. Activate the lift and get in the SUV. Close to the top, you will earn the "Drive High" achievement. Then, take the SUV up to the roof (you will have to throw it up there once you reach the balcony. Now, depending on the Achievement you want, you can either:

    A. Throw the SUV off the building and shoot it once with a rocket. That's all you need to do. Trust me, it counts.


    B. Drive the car under the little dome and position it so that you are aimed at the ledge. Drive off the building (if you are level 4 driving, use the jump to get extra height) and you should be in the air long enough to get the achievement. NOTE: I haven't tried yet, but you might be able to do enough flips to get the timed stunt driver achievement.

  • Baggage Cart

    Entry location: Volk oil rig
    So the new content came out and gave us more abilities. One new feature is now you can impound vehicles from 4 groups: Los Muertos, The Volk, Shi Gen, And civilian. One of the hardest rides to get is the baggage cart in the civilian-class vehicle section. First head to the oil rig in the volk gang section. Its easy to get to the rig if you have the storage facility supply point. Head over the third part of the rig. Get to the helipad and you should find two bag cart. Well done, but its not over yet. Now you have to get your new ride off the rig and on the mainland. First, jump from the the 2nd part of the rig. You will lose the cart when you hit the ground. Pick up the cart and jump to the next one. Again you will lose the vehicle on impact. Now here is where patience comes in. Jump onto the pipe and walk gingerly until you get to metal part at the other end of the pipe. Look to your left and jump while throwing your ride. This will damage your vehicle but who cares, ya did it. Now get your ride upright and on the road and drive it back to base. Congratulations, you now got yourself a nice drive-by vehicle.
