Grand Theft Auto
Avoid Hitting Pedestrians:
Hate running over people and having the cops jump your back? Press the
"special" button to honk the horn while in a car. This will slighly
decrease the chance of running over a pedestrian.
When you start out on a level steal a car, but don't pick a big one or else
the trick will be harder. Then keep searching for a garage door kinda thing
that has an X coming out from it. Enter that place and your car will be
rigged or in other words bombed. Then stop the car somewhere and press the
FIRE button your car will be armed so get out of it within about five seconds
or you will BLOW up! This trick is useful for jobs, killing and collecting
Note: You MUST have at least $5,000 dollars or you will not be able to get
your car rigged.

Go up to a group of Gurangas, or the groups of people making noise and running
around following each other. Now, don't shoot them, but instead beat up the
person in the front. If you beat him up enough, they will start following you
almost anywhere. It's a good way to get a guranga with a machine gun, flame
thrower, or other high powered weapon of death.
On the first city, access the second scene (Heist All Mighty.) When you start,
run somebody over and wait for the ambulance to arrive. When it does, nick it
and drive to the army base, drive in and you can nick the tank.
Note: This only works with an ambulance or a police car.
Free Car Bombs:
In San Andreas, the bomb shop on the southeast end of the Golden Gate bridge
will rig your car for free. Enter it before you do anything, and the guy will
tell you that you don't have enough money. But then the car is rigged anyway!
It might work on other shops but I haven't tried it. My personal use for this
is to rig the car they start you off with, since it won't disappear when you
leave it, and then get it when you want to use the car bomb.
Go Through Fences:
When you find a fence you want to go through go find a truck or van
(something you crawl under instead of over when you press R1). Align the
truck so it is parallel with the fence. Get out and crawl under the truck
towards the fence, you should come up on the other side.
Play Any Music CD While Playing:
After the game has finished loading, replace your GTA CD with your own music
CD. Although you cannot really choose which track to listen to, by switching
between Radio and Constant while paused, then unpausing it, the track
