GTA3: Weapons and Objects
HINTS, CHEATS AND PLAYING TIPS

CASH: EASY WAYS TO GET MONEY
1.
Look out for ramps and high slopes. If you drive up them fast enough, you can jump certain obstacles such as buildings and truck trailers. If successful, you can get a "Insane Bonus" message, resulting in a lot of money.
2. When riding around in Staunton Island, look for a women dressed as a sprinter/jogger. Get out, then attack and kill her. After doing so, collect the thousands of dollars she leaves on the floor. Note: Be careful, you might alert the cops.
3. After you complete the check list of cars for the Portland Docks garage, you can take the Surcuricar and drive it into the garage around the corner. After the second garage opens, drive in, exit the car, and you will receive a varying amount of money. The garage is the same one as in the Van Heist mission.
4. Find the old gangster walking around with a red rag --he slumps over. Kill him to get thousands of dollars.
5. Enable the "Pedestrians Riot" code then kill yourself (falling into water works best). When you appear at the hospital, two or three old men will run over to you in order. Kill them in the order that they appeared. After the last one is killed, $10,000 will appear around the second one.
6. Go to the harbor in Portland, near where you can board the ship. A lot of people will come by, which you can kill for money. No felony comes back there, so you will never get captured.
7. Enable the "Change costume" code until you look like a gang member. You can now beat them up and take their money without resistance. This does not work if you try it with cops.
8. Finish your work for Lugi, then work for Joey until you complete the "Farewell Chunky Lee Chong" mission. Then, go back to the alley where you enter Luigi's. Turn around and take the street on the right. Go up the street until you see an alley with a Perennial parked in it (on the right side of street). Go into the alley and wait for two people to start a fight. When one of them starts to run, kill him. He will have $20,000.
9. Enable the "Tank" code. Each time you blow up or run over a car, you will receive a certain amount of money.
10. Enable the "Tank" code in one place until they are stacked on top of each other. You will get a large amount off money because they are hitting each other. Next, park a car near the tanks and blow it up. When the pedestrians run to it, use the "Destroy all cars" code and even the blown up car will explode. Repeat to get more money.
11. Enable the "Tank" code twice. Get in one Tank and ram the other.
12. After getting six stars on your wanted level, the military chases you. Neutralize the tank drivers, then hop in and bash up against another tank. Look at your money while your bashing your tank against theirs to see it rise.
13. Get two tanks. Get in one and push the other one and the money will just keep rolling in.
14. Every time you steal a taxi, you will get $25 and a new car.
15. Once you find an Securicar, take it to the import and export garage to get $5,000.
16. Get any car and stalk another one on the road. When you are ready, floor it and hit the other car in the rear. You will get money and when your car catches fire, bail. When it explodes you will receive a substantial amount of money.
17. Enable the "Destroy all cars" code near a person and he will die. Then, go to his or her body and get the money.
18. Go on ramps and get a unique stunt bonus. For the next unique stunt bonus you complete, you will get more money in the thousands of dollars range. For example, go on the Callahan bridge with a fast car. Drive down the middle. When on the Portland side, keep driving down the middle at the end where there is a yellow thing with black stripes. Hit it at a fast speed to use it as a ramp. Do this repeatedly and correctly to get a unique stunt bonus.
19. Put cars in a garage and then blow them up. Walk away from the garage, then walk back. The cars will be restored. Repeat this to get money each time.
20. Enable the "Low gravity" code and find ramps. You can get easy money by jumping over places, trailers, etc.
21. For an easy $50,000, get a Securicar. You can usually find them in Portland around the Callahan Bridge or at Callahan Point. There is a separate garage besides the Import/Export building in Portland. When you enter the docks, there will be three cars, including a Kuruma. Directly to the rear of the Kuruma will be a few blue garages that are numbered. The middle garage, however, is not numbered. If you drive your Securicar into this garage, you will receive $50,000. For every delivery you make thereafter, you will receive $5,000 less.
22. Get a police car and take it to your garage at the safehouse. Pull into the garage and activate the vigilante missions. Get out of the car and the message about getting back in to the car will appear. Wait until the garage closes and enable the "Destroy all cars" code. The reward message will appear, since you destroyed all cars but the police car in your garage will be unharmed. Repeat this to get a large amount of money.
23. Get in a car and run into any of the gang cars (Diablo Stallion, Cartel Cruizer, Hoods Rumpo XL, etc.) or city government cars (Police car, Ambulance, Fire Truck). You will receive cash. The longer you do it, the more money you will get.

MORE ITEMS
Unlimited Health icons:
Save fifty people on paramedic missions to get unlimited health icons at your hideout. Note This does not have to be done at once.
Easy health: Hijack an ambulance to get 20 health.
Unlimited Adrenaline Pills: Save fifty people on paramedic missions to get unlimited Adrenaline Pills at your hideout. Note This does not have to be done at once.
Police bribes: Complete about twenty vigilante missions in each district to obtain a total of six cop bribes at your hideout.
Police bribes 2: Get seven kills in a row in vigilante mode to unlock a police bribe that is available at your hideout.
Police bribes 3: In the vigilante missions, eliminate eight criminal threats to get one police bribe. The police bribe is the small star that you use to get rid of the police. If you eliminate eighteen criminal threats, you will get one more police bribe.
100 armor: In some police stations are Enforcers (police trucks). If you go in them, you will get 100 armor.
100 armor 2: Hijack the Line Runner (semi-truck), then exit. You will have 100 armor.
Hidden packages: When you see the Rockstar billboard, there are usually some items nearby. On the three islands, hidden packages are usually found near the billboards. For every ten hidden packages you find, you gain access to a new weapon located at your hideout, free of charge.
Hidden packages 2: There is a hidden package on the split bridge. You have to get on the middle to get it, and be on the bridge as it goes up. Note: You must get the package quickly before the bridge goes back down.
Hidden packages 3:If see an alley, a cut-through, a big vacant area, or anyplace where you would never normally go, drive around. There may be a package located there, or at least a gun or health.

OBJECTS: WEAPONS HINTS, CHEATS AND PLAYING TIPS
Unlimited Flamethrowers:
Put out twenty fires on each of the three islands (about sixty total) to get unlimited Flamethrowers at your hideout. Note This does not have to be done all at once
Easy guns: Get a bat and kill gang members. If there is a few of them around, use a sniper rifle instead. If the gang shoots at you for no reason, keep away from them. If you need good firepower, get a five star wanted level but make sure the FBI cannot shoot you. Enable the "No wanted level" code and go to the FBI. They will not get in their cars because you cannot walk and aim with some wepons. Punch one to get one star and get into a fist fight with the FBI. Use a bat to kill them. When you have done this, you will get a few handguns and M16 rounds.
Easy ammunition: Note: This trick only works for guns found in your hideout. Take all the guns, then walk into the very back of your garage. Hit the wall, then leave the garage again. All your guns, and anything else that appears there, will be there again. Repeat this until you have enough ammunition for your guns.
Automatic handgun: With the handgun equipped, hold Circle to fire a fury of bullets at a constant rate until your clip runs out.
Faster shooting shotgun: Hold Circle to fire the shotgun (or any other lock-on weapon) and press R1 repeatedly to fire it rapidly at your target. This method usually targets many targets around you, resulting in killing everything that is in range. When using the shotgun, try pressing R1 each time your character is about to pump the shotgun to prevent him from jittering, thus making it fire as fast as the handgun.
Free shotgun: Steal a police car. When you get out you will have a shotgun with five rounds. Note: You cannot use the same car twice.
Free shotgun 2: Go to any Ammunation store and shoot the clerk. Most of the time, you will get his shotgun. Do the same to get ammunition for a shotgun that you already have. If you leave for a little while then return, you can shoot the clerk again. However, if you do not kill him the first time you he will shoot you.
Shotgun rounds: Every police car you get into results in five rounds for a shotgun.
Immunity to flamethrower and molotov cocktails: Use the following trick to become immune from the fires caused by the flamethrower and molotov cocktails. Take an adrenaline pill to make the environment go into slow motion. Equip the flamethrower or molotov and use it to set a civilian on fire. Get close enough to the civilian and you will eventually set fire to yourself. Before the flames on you die out, press the replay button. You can either cancel the replay or let it finish. When the game goes back to real time, you will find yourself practically immune from fires from both of these weapons. Note: You must press the replay button before the fire on you dies out. Also, you will not be immune from explosions -- stay away from burning vehicles. You can now set fire on anything that moves and you will not get hurt in the process.
Getting guns: Go by Toni's place to find an alleyway where an Uzi is located. Go near the mob car on the ledge in the other nearby alley -- you can go between two buildings and find an AK47-like rifle and some armor.
Getting guns 2: Go to Chinatown and look for a Triad member (men with blue uniforms). Run them down with a car until a gun appears (sometimes it is a bat). Alternately, you can get out of your car and hit them with a bat, but you might be spotted by another Triad member and get shot.
