  • How To Get To Stauton Island Before getting all the mafia missions

    ok, in order to get to stauton island before completing the mafia missions, you must turn on the dodo cheat. Once you have the dodo cheat on, get a pretty fast car, like the police car or the car by the 8-ball shop. then, go to the bridge and get past the orange cone by slowly going through the right side. Once youre in, get in the middle of the bridge, and get ready to take off! Slam the accelerator and press up on the analog so the nose goes down, once you get to the very edge, where the brigde breaks, press down slightly so the nose goes up, you should make it all the way to the next side. Stauton Island is Awesome!!

  • Dodo Car

    Press Right, Black, B, R, White, Down, L, R during gameplay. A message will confirm the code entry.

    Hint on Flying the Dodo car:
    Take the Dodo Car to the very end of the runway (or empty highway, If possible). Turn it around so its facing away from the edge of the road/runway. Hold A to build up momentum, while holding Up. Once you get enough speed, quickly hold Down. Once airborne, use normal controls to level out the car. Note: The dodo car is very difficult to fly (because there are no wings). This code may work with any car.

  • Indestructible/ Invincible Car

    This takes a while, but is definitely worth it. On Portland, after you talk to El Burro of The Diablos, go the the line to start racing, but first you must line up tanks along the whole road. (For tanks push circle 6 times, then R, White, L, Y, B, Y. Then, when one of the carshits it and flips over, you must flip it back over and bring it to your garage. That car will then be invincible.

  • Flying Tank

    Many people have wanted to fly but you think that you can't because you are on Portland or Staunton Island. Here's a way to Fly. Put in the code for the tank.(Tip:Don't use any fast car they're to fast they keep spinning out)after the tank appears put in the Dodo car code. Now the tank is not fast enough so you will have to turn the cannon around with the right joy-stick. When the cannon is facing behind you, get on a long straight road. Start driving and firing the cannon behind you while you drive. The shots fired will give you the speed you need. You won't need to pull up, the tank will pull up on its own.
    When you are in the air you need to keep firing to keep up enough speed. Now your fling you can fly as far as you want just get the hang of turning first.

  • How To Get a Secret Package

    Well this is one out of one hundred packages but its worth it. This is how you get the package. First go to Luigi's club. Instead of getting work go past the blue circle. Then walk up some stairs (not the stairs that go into Luigi's club). Once your up there look around (you shouldn't have to look around a lot). When you have the package go back to the game.

    If you don't feel for it to drive trough that blue square or round with a car, you always could find it when you completed the missions at Luigi's club.
    And then the second:
    You have to find the Banshee in Eightball's car montage, the shop with the glass walls. Just next to the Banshee sport-car you could find the Hidden Package.
    And the third and forth, even the fifth:
    In the beginning you will begin at a bridge, when you drive of the bridge, you could find a package next to the bridge in a secret area under the bridge.
    The next package, ill give you a hint, drive trough another glass wall building.
    The last that I will then is located in the Tunnel for the trains.
    Alright you want to now one more Package?
    At the big white container place when you drive straight in the beginning on the bridge, the place with the fence, look around for a sixth package.

    Dodo Car
    Press Right, R2, Circle, R1, L2, Down, L1, R1 during gameplay. A message will confirm the code entry.
    Hint on Flying the Dodo car:

    Get free shot gun
    Go to ammo-nation store and after you buy a gun walk up to the clerk and try to point the gun at him the best you can because you can target him, kill him, he shoots back so do it fast and after you kill him walk up to the counter and you will get his shotgun.
    Extra Cash
    Not a cheat , more of a hint. When in an emergency car ( cop car , ambulance car , fire truck ) or a taxi. Press the right analogue stick ( R3 ) and you can do a sub mission for extra cash
    Up to 5 Cars in your Garage
    In your garage is Staution Island you can only hold 2 cars...right? Well...there is a way to keep up to 5 cars in there at once!
    Heres how you do it:
    1.If you have 2 cars already in your garage, go get another one, and bring it to your garage.
    2.Park it right in front of the garage with its nose practically on the garage door.(Don't worry this cheat will fix that dent)
    3.Then get out of your car and walk to the garage door and when it opens, quickly jump back into your car and gas it!
    4. The garage door will try to close on it, but it wont. Park it deep, so the garage door can still be closed.
    5.Get out of the garage and presto, 3 cars in there now!
    6.If you re-arrange your cars (sideways works well) you can fit 5 cars in your garage and it still closes, letting you have 5 nice cars ready to take out.
    Yardie Lobo Shocks
    In Staunton Island you can jack the Yardie Lobo, when you speed up and slow down the shocks drop and lower naturally, but if you use the right-analog stick the suspension rises and falls in whatever direction you push it. You can actually roll the car from a stopped position, try it it's fun. Oh yeah, you don't have to save it for your garage to repair your car, just back off so the door closes then get near it to open and your car will be repaired.
    Get the tank
    All you need is about 15 rockets and 15 grenades and some armor. Get a big truck after you get the stuff mentioned above and go the third level with the airport. Get two stars so the police will follow you to the back of the airport. Go to the Helipad with the police helicopter and get on top of it. Throw the grenades to destroy the police that will come below. Use the rockets on the pesky helicopters after you get full stars start watching the ground for tanks when they come throw a grenade to kill the guys and hurry and jump in. This is the easiest way I could figure out how to do it.
    Fast Car
    On portland city go to 8 balls BOMB SHOP then go right into the car sales and you will see a banchee car in a glass room smash the window with a car and hey presto you have a nice car
    Hidden Packages
    When you see the ROCKSTER billboard, there are usually some items nearby. On the 3 islands, hidden packages are usually found near the billboards. For every 10 hidden packages you find, you gain access to a new weapon located at your hideout, free of charge.

  • How To Fly (and turn) The Dodo Plane

    Ok, I know that ALOT of people are having a hard time flying the Dodo. So... I decided to write a FAQ to help you all.
    NOTE: I just learned how to fly, and trust me,THIS WILL TAKE PRACTICE!
    Ok, First off, go to the airport in ShoreSide Vale so you can get the Dodo. When you are there, drive all the way to the beginning of the runway, or just go down by the place where there is another Dodo, and a bunch of helicopters.(NOTE: I get my Dodo usually down in the hanger by the water, but you can get the one near the helipcopters to save time, it doesnt matter.)
    Now get on the runway, and make sure you are pointed straight, so when you drive you wont go off the runway,or the black part. Now hold the left analog stick very slightly up. This will cause your place to tilt forwards when you drive, and help pick up speed. The reason why you should barely move it up is because then the plane will take longer to lean all the way down, thus you pick up more speed.
    Now while holding up on the left analog stick, start to drive.
    Keep going until you see your plane sort of bouncing up and down, and you see sparks.
    When you see your plane sort of bouncing and you see sparks, let go of the analog stick gently. This will send your plane shooting into the air, almost vertically, so when you get up, start pressing up, so your will make the plane level. Sort of point it a little downwards so the plane will kind of dive, thus you pick up speed, then you just level the plane by barely moving the analog stick downwards.
    Keep pressing up on the analog stick every so often to pick up speed, the plane usually does the rest and makes you gain altitude, so really when you go down and get more speed, the air will sort of pick you up, and make you go higher, but you still need to push the analog stick down a little to help it climb higher, and so that you can fly longer.
    NOW YOUR FLYING!
    Now turning...
    Turning is very hard, and should only really be done when you know where you are flying. To turn, just barely tap the analog stick in the direction you want to turn, but kind of do it diagonally, like right-up, or left-up, NEVER push it left-down or right-down, this will cause your plane to sort of stall. and can be very hard to get it flying again, and you will most likely crash. Never make hard sharp turns, unless you want to crash...
    Landing is pretty simple, just make sure your straight, find a long flat place, and press up on the analog stick, this will move you down, and just press Square and R1 when close to the ground, so that you will stop.
    Flying Tank
    Many people have wanted to fly but you think that you can't because you are on Portland or Staunton Island. Here's a way to Fly. Put in the code for the tank.(Tip:Don't use any fast car they're to fast they keep spinning out)after the tank appears put in the Dodo car code. Now the tank is not fast enough so you will have to turn the cannon around with the right joy-stick. When the cannon is facing behind you, get on a long straight road. Start driving and firing the cannon behind you while you drive. The shots fired will give you the speed you need. You won't need to pull up, the tank will pull up on its own.
    When you are in the air you need to keep firing to keep up enough speed. Now your fling you can fly as far as you want just get the hang of turning first.

  • Up to 5 Cars in your Garage

    In your garage is Staution Island you can only hold 2 cars...right? Well...there is a way to keep up to 5 cars in there at once!
    Heres how you do it:
    1.If you have 2 cars already in your garage, go get another one, and bring it to your garage.
    2.Park it right in front of the garage with its nose practically on the garage door.(Don't worry this cheat will fix that dent)
    3.Then get out of your car and walk to the garage door and when it opens, quickly jump back into your car and gas it!
    4. The garage door will try to close on it, but it wont. Park it deep, so the garage door can still be closed.
    5.Get out of the garage and presto, 3 cars in there now!
    6.If you re-arrange your cars (sideways works well) you can fit 5 cars in your garage and it still closes, letting you have 5 nice cars ready to take out.

  • Yardie Lobo Shocks

    In Staunton Island you can jack the Yardie Lobo, when you speed up and slow down the shocks drop and lower naturally, but if you use the right-analog stick the suspension rises and falls in whatever direction you push it. You can actually roll the car from a stopped position, try it it's fun. Oh yeah, you don't have to save it for your garage to repair your car, just back off so the door closes then get near it to open and your car will be repaired.

  • Get the tank

    All you need is about 15 rockets and 15 grenades and some armor. Get a big truck after you get the stuff mentioned above and go the third level with the airport. Get two stars so the police will follow you to the back of the airport. Go to the Helipad with the police helicopter and get on top of it. Throw the grenades to destroy the police that will come below. Use the rockets on the pesky helicopters after you get full stars start watching the ground for tanks when they come throw a grenade to kill the guys and hurry and jump in. This is the easiest way I could figure out how to do it.
