GTA 3 hidden packages mark the first appearance of these somewhat infamous recurring collectibles, which require players to fully explore Liberty City and occasionally undertake parkour-esque traversals in order to reach their tricky locations. It's worth making the effort to seek them out though, as in addition to counting towards that 100% completion stat they also unlock some seriously beneficial perks that will help you through the rest of the story. If you're ready to start rounding them up, then we've got details on where to find all 100 GTA 3 hidden packages, and the rewards you'll receive for collecting them.

For each of the GTA 3 hidden packages you pick up you'll receive a $1,000 bonus, which is much more generous than in subsequent games. You'll also unlock the following weapon/item spawns at your safehouses for every 10 packages found:

  • 10 GTA 3 Hidden Packages: Pistol
  • 20 GTA 3 Hidden Packages: Uzi
  • 30 GTA 3 Hidden Packages: Grenades
  • 40 GTA 3 Hidden Packages: Shotgun
  • 50 GTA 3 Hidden Packages: Body Armor
  • 60 GTA 3 Hidden Packages: Molotov Cocktails
  • 70 GTA 3 Hidden Packages: AK-47
  • 80 GTA 3 Hidden Packages: Sniper Rifle
  • 90 GTA 3 Hidden Packages: M16
  • 100 GTA 3 Hidden Packages: Rocket Launcher plus $1,000,000

Finding 20 GTA 3 hidden packages should be your initial goal, as this means you'll have a steady supply of Uzi ammo for drive-bys while in a vehicle. You should also aim to gather 50 packages as quickly as possible once you've unlocked the second island, as this means you'll always have a supply of Body Armor to keep protected as the combat difficulty increases during the story.
