With the announcement that GTA 4 and its episodes are now backwards compatible on Xbox One (opens in new tab), it felt as good a time as any to revisit one of our classic guides. If you want the bragging rights that go with achieving 100% Grand Theft Auto 4 completion you'll need to find and kill 200 pigeons hidden around Liberty City, and it's a tough job. We know it's a tough job because we've found every single one of the little feathered buggers while putting together this absolutely kick ass and utterly essential pigeon guide.
Thanks to us, finding all the flying rats couldn't be easier, as we show you the locations of all the hidden birds in the game. We've marked the locations of the pigeons on the map below - simply click on it to make it nice and big and use it alongside the following screenshots and descriptions. And, finally, we've also got videos showing each pigeon getting obliterated. Enjoy the vermin extermination!
