GTA Vice City: Game Glitches
Helicopter and garage glitch: If you own Sunshine Autos, then this trick will work. First, fill at least one of your garages up to the maximum amount of cars at Sunshine Autos. Then, get a helicopter. It doesn't matter which one. Attempt to fly it directly over your garages at Sunshine Autos (as high as you want). You will see the message, "You cannot store any more cars in this garage." It's the same one you see when you pull a car up to a full garage.
Sink under the city: Take a motorcycle and go to your first save point. Go down the stairs were there is a police star and continue straight until you cross the street. You will technically be going through bushes and stuff. Anyhow.. a little futher there will be in the grass a ligther green patch of grass. If you go in it with your motorcycle, you will start sinking into it and finally fall under the city and see under it!!!
Disappearing Car: Blow up a car next to one of your garages. Then, try to push the destroyed vehicle into the garage. As you are almost in, the car will just disappear. Of course, if you blow up a car already in your garage, it will just be as good as new when you close the garage and then open it.
Selfish Cops: Find a cop somewhere in the city and then point a gun at a pedestrian in front of the cop. It must be an automatic aim weapon. The cop will not do anything even though he sees you pointing a gun at a person. Then, try pointing at him. You will get 2 quick stars on you. Interesting behavior.
Speedy Roof Ride: Make sure you have a chainsaw. Now, jump on top of any car and use the chainsaw. It will come down on the top of this person's car. They will sometimes get scared, get out and run away. But, sometimes they will get scared and drive rally fast and wild. Stay on the top of the speeding car and go for the ride of your life.
Car Riding Glitch: If you try to get on top of a car, it will usually carry you wherever it goes, but sometimes you will slide off as the car accelerates. It happens rarely and will happen every time you try it during that time until you reload the game. Then, usually it will go back to normal.
Change size of the moon: Use the sniper rifle at night, zoom in on the moon, then shoot it. It will get bigger or smaller.
Change size of garbage bags: Get a sniper rifle and zoom in on a group of two garbage bags. Start shooting at them to make one very big and the other very small.
Become a pedestrian: Go to the Leaf Links Golf Club. When you see a caddy, steal it. Stay near the person you stole it from. Usually, they will try to steal it back from you. Make sure they are closer to the passenger side of the caddy when you do this. As they are walking towards you to try to steal it back, be ready to hit the gas. As they are getting back in the caddy, floor it. Instead of kicking you out of the caddy, they will take your place, and your body will disappear. The camera will stay on the caddy, but you will be gone and the pedestrian takes your place. Then let go of the acceleration button and the camera will follow the pedestrian around. The only thing you can do at this point is change the radio stations and look around with L2 and R2 buttons. This is a cool trick but is very hard to do. It takes some practice but eventually it will work.
Stand on car in mid-air: When you go over a ramp or jump, open your car door in mid-air. You will get out and will be standing on the car while it is floating in mid-air. This can also be done by driving off a bridge and bailing out in mid-air.
Sink through a car: Get a Packer, and drive a motorcycle on top of it. Exit the motorcycle and you will sink through the packer as if it was not there. You will then pop up next to it.
Vehicles disappearing from garage: Vehicles stored in the garages at the Hyman Condo complex can disappear from them if you take the helicopter on the roof and return later.
Store more than two cars or motorcycles in garage: When you have two cars or motorcycles in your garage at your safe house, you usually will not be able to store any vehicles inside. To get around this, get off the car or motorcycle in front of the full garage. The garage will open. Get on your motorcycle or into your car quickly and drive it into the garage before the door closes.
Get more than two motorcycles into a single garage: Get a motorcycle and drive it to a garage with two other motorcycles. Drive your motorcycle to the garage and get off to open the garage door. Then, get back on and drive it in before the garage door has a chance to shut. When you save the game, the third motorcycle will remain in the garage.
Climb a tree: Go to where a beach or a body of water is located. There should be some palm trees nearby. Find one that is bent (or curved) and try to climb it. Note: Do not run up the tree or you will fall in -- walk slowly. When you get close to the top, slow down. If you continue walking, you will fall.
Aim with cell phone: When the phone is ringing, equip yourself with any kind of auto-aiming weapon (such as a pistol). Press R1 to aim it at a random pedestrian. While still holding R1, press L1 to answer the phone. Tommy will continue to aim in the same spot, though now he is using the cell phone instead of the gun. You may release R1 and he will continue to aim at the same spot, even if the pedestrian moves. Note: Depending on how you move, he may switch between holding the phone to his ear, and pointing it at the blank spot that the pedestrian used to occupy.
Shoot yourself: Get a semi-automatic weapon (Uzi recommended) on an Angel or a Freeway. Look left and press Square to reverse and Circle to shoot. You will appear to be shooting yourself.
Fly under Vice City: Get a helicopter (Hunter recommended), and go to the front of the WK Chariot Hotel in the Downtown area. This is the same hotel that was across from Candi Suxxx's and Shrub's love nest. It is marked "Vice Point Langer" on the front. Take your helicopter and fly it under the front awning. Basically, fly it directly up to the front door. Then, hold X and fly straight up. You will fly through a fake (non-solid) roof, and be inside the hotel. You can see the spiral stairwell that you have to run up to take the photos in the Martha's Mugshot mission from the outside. From there, fly downward and you are now under the game map and can go anywhere. Note: Do not fly too low or too high or you may appear above ground or end up dying in the water.
Fly under Vice City (2): Go to your Mansion. If you have a Sea Sparrow get into it. If not, try the helicopter on the roof. From where the Sea Sparrow is located, turn around and go into the pool area in the mansion. When in the pool area, fly up through the roof. When you are completely above the ceiling of the pool area, fly north towards the black box/room. When you are over the brown underworld, press Square and go under the game world. You can then fly anywhere under the water.
Fall from water to sky: Enable the "Dodo (flying" and "Float on water" codes. Go into the water and drive around. Gain speed and fly into the air. Try to flip your vehicle upside down in the water. If done correctly, the car will sink and a clicking sound will start. You and the vehicle will drop out of the sky and land somewhere random in Vice City. Note: You may need to try this a few times with different cars. If it does not work immediately, you will die.
Re-appearing cars: If you have any vehicles in a garage, you can blow it up into scrap metal. If the metal is in the garage, make the garage door close. Once you have it open again, the car that was destroyed will appear again, while the scrap metal of the car that was destroyed is still there.
Never fall off motorcycle: Take a PCG 600 to a clothes shop. The easiest one is "Collar And Cuffs" with the "Mr. Vercetti" outfit. Get off the motorcycle, and get the outfit. Once it is gone, place the motorcycle parallel to the edge of the small steps, so that the clothes still respawn. Once you do this, get on the motorcycle at the exact moment when you buy the clothes. You will be stuck the motorcycle as though the game merged you into it. This now allows you to drive around safely without worry of falling off. Also, it lets you use an assault riffle as a drive-by weapon. However, once you fire the gun, the bike will return to normal, allowing you to fall off again and disabling the gun. However, as long as you hold Circle, you will still shoot assault rifle. This glitch can also be done with other motorcycles.
Never fall off motorcycle (2): In order to do this glitch, you need to be in a point in the game where your cell phone is ringing. Also, you will need any motorcycle. Go to Rafael's and get off your bike. If your cell phone is ringing, hold L1. While holding L1, walk over and get the clothes icon, then get back on the bike. You must hold L1 the entire time. Drive off and release L1. The screen should turn black, and you will then should be standing up, as if you were not on the bike. You can pull wheelies all the way back and not fall off. You can also do a lot insane stunt bonuses that you otherwise would be incapable of doing. While on the motorcycle, switch to grenades or molotov cocktails to throw them off. Note: The cocktails will heavily damage your bike. This trick also works in cars, and you can see Tommy's legs appearing from the bottom.
No-Hands Motorcycle: With this glitch you can "ride" a motorcycle without ever being thrown off (until it blows up...) First off you have to have someone calling you in the game (make sure you don't answer it). Then find a place with a change of clothes, and while the phone is ringing, grab the spare clothes and jump on a bike. Now suddenly good ol' Tom is a master motorcyclist, he no longer needs to use his hands when riding and he cant be thrown off. The bike still handles the same, except you can't go into Pay 'N Spray because it doesn't think you are on the bike. However you can do some great insane stunts without any worry of flying off the bike. I've done this several times and it seems to work fine. I have currently only tried this at my Hyman Condo, so I don't actually know for sure if it
works anywhere else, but I don't see why it shouldn't.
Free money in taxi without a passenger: When you start the taxi mission, try to pick up a person next a police officer and get one star. Stop next the police officer and make sure he approaches your car from the passenger side (where the person you picked up should be sitting). As soon the cop opens the door, speed away. The cop will pull out your passenger, but the game will think that he is still in the taxi. Upon arrival at the location which the passenger specified, you will be awarded money, as if he was still in the car.
Zeba taxi damage immunity: For some reason, the entire Zebra taxi can appear damaged except for the passenger side. The two doors on the passenger side cannot get scratched or removed, other than when the entire vehicle explodes.
Headless driver: Find a Ruger or a Sniper. Look for any car, get in front of it, and make it stop. Make sure only one person is inside the car. Shoot the person in the head and run quickly to the driver's side door. Use the rear view (L1 + R1) and move the car slightly. Watch as the headless driver walks to you.
Phil Cassedy's missing arm: During the first intermission sequence in the Boomshine Saigon mission, Phil gets one of his arms blown off by the bomb he placed on the boomshine barrels. Continue the mission and get Phil to the doctor. Watch as he gets out of the car. The arm that he blew off is now switched with his other arm.
Regenerating people: To see people appear out of the middle of nowhere, aim the sniper rifle in the distance at a sidewalk or a road. People will just appear and walk around.
Unlimited Colt .45 ammunition: If you have a Colt .45 in your weapon slot and complete The Shootist mission with a score of 70 or more, it will have unlimited ammunition.
Floating road blocks: Go into an alley that has orange road blocks. Start shooting them and moving them around. Walk a few blocks away and when you return they should be floating in the air.
Taxi driver pickup: Steal any taxi cab and immediately press R3 to start a taxi mission. The person you are supposed to pick up is often the taxi cab driver you just pulled out.
No star for police collision: Normally, if you hit a cop car while driving your wanted level will increase. However, if you are driving and hit the cop head-on, there are no repercussions (no wanted level increase, no cops chasing you around, etc.) This may be helpful in missions that are time-sensitive if you can make sure to hit the cops head-on.
Mid-air skid marks: Get a motorcycle (PCJ 600 recommended) and find a Packer driving down the road. Stay directly behind its ramp, just keeping up with it. Suddenly, hit the gas but do not launch off the top of the Packer -- just roll back down the ramp in reverse to see your skid mark floating in the air.
Mid-air skid marks (2): Get a Packer and park a car on top of it. Drive the Packer in reverse so that the car falls off the top of it. The car will leave a big skid mark hanging in the middle of the air.
Lose extra health from prostitute: If you use a prostitute to get your health above 100 and go to a save point, your health will drop back to 100 when you exit the save point.
Lose extra health with a prostitute: After you complete the Pizza Boy mission and get 150 health, if you pick up a prostitute, your health will drop to 125 immediately. Thus, after the Pizza Boy missions, there is no longer a point of getting a prostitute for health gain.
Weapon stuck on detonator: After you get a 100% completion, the game awards you with unlimited ammunition, among other things. This causes a glitch if you get the bombs from Phil's Place or the car bomb from 8 Ball's. The weapon selector gets stuck on the detonator. Do not use these weapons after you get a 100% rating.
Fall off the world: Get on a bike and ride it fast towards a clothes store. Jump off, and it will stop just inside the doorway. Run inside and jump on the bike, then onto the door. Jump in any direction and you will fall or float depending on which direction you go. You will then land back outside the store.
Love Juice mission: No motorcycles: During the first of the Love Fist mission (Love Juice) when you pick up Mercedes to take her back to the band, do not use a motorcycle of any kind. She will not be able to get on the back if it during the intermission sequence, although anyone can during other missions.
Keep Your Friends Close mission: Wrong subtitle text: When Tommy tells Rosenberg to get 20 million of counterfeit money, the subtitles state 3.
Ice Cream Factory saves: The game may glitch at times when it is saved at the Ice Cream Factory. When that save is reloaded, the game will turn black and freeze.
Vice Point: Pedestrians sitting on air: Go into the North Point Mall and look around on the benches. Sometimes the pedestrians will sit down on them, however they sit strangely and are actually sitting on air.
Vice Point: Motorcycle in club: Get a Freeway motorcycle and drive it into the Malibu Club for an interesting glitch.
Vice Point: Non-reflecting mirror In Malibu Club: Upstairs in the Malibu Club is a mirror on one of the walls with a model that resembles Colonel Cortez's ship. Walk over to it. Looking into the mirror in first person view, you can see that it reflects the things in the office like a painting on the wall, the chairs, a few lights, the model ship, and the doorway. However, it does not reflect you.
Vice Point: Motorcycle in mall: You can take any kind of motorcycle into the North Point Mall. You can then drive around in the mall freely. However, it is easier to drive up the "down" escalator to go up and ramp down when you want to go down.
Escobar International Airport: Get weapons inside: Go through the metal detector at the airport and your weapons will be removed. Keep running at the glass where your weapons are located and you can actually get some of them back while inside the airport.
Leaf Links: Jack Caddy through gate: When you go to Leaf Links Golf Course's front gates, wait until a Caddy comes up to the gate. They try to go through the gate all thetime. When they turn their golf carts around so you are looking at one side of the Caddy, walk up to the gate and press Triangle. You will step through the gate and jack the Caddy.
Little Havana: Helicopter with wheels: After acquiring Sunshine Autos, get a Sparrow. Fly it to Sunshine Autos and set it down just outside the Pay 'N' Spray in back, If you are confident in your flying abilities, attempt to fly it into the spray area. If not, turn it around so that the cockpit is facing the four garages and push it inside. Once it is in there, get inside. After it is sprayed, fly it out of the garage and you will have a helicopter with wheels.
Little Havana: Shoot through glass wall: Get a gun that will visibly go through the glass wall when you fire, such as the mini-gun or flamethrower. In other words, you have to see a part of it going through the glass. Fire the gun through the glass wall as Sunshine Autos. You will not see any fire or blood, but nonetheless, you can still kill anything through the glass wall. This works best on the first floor of Sunshine Autos. Use this trick to fend of the cops at a five or star wanted level.
Little Havana: List mistake: On the fourth and final list for Sunshine Autos, the list says to get a "Baggage" instead of the vehicle's true name, the "Baggage Handler".
Little Havana: Untouchable clothes: Go to the Little Havana Streetwear store. The front door will be open. Enter it, then turn to your left. You will see the clothes icon with the word "Havana".
Little Havana: Untouchable clothes (2): It is possible to get this outfit. To do so, ghost ride a motorcycle into the door, then jump over it so you are on the counter in the store. Place your back towards the clothing icon and use a rifle that can aim to blow up the motorcycle. The resulting explosion will push you backwards towards the clothes. You should see Tommy float under the screen as if he is falling, then he will appear outside in the Havana outfit.
Ocean Beach: Matrix-type move: Go into the lighthouse on the beach. Climb to the very top staircase. Then, attempt to jump down to the last stairs through the middle. Tommy will jump, do a small Trinity-style move from The Matrix, then go back to the stairs.
Ocean Beach: Unbreakable hotel window: Go to your hotel room at the Ocean View hotel. Shoot out of the window with a gun that shoots bullets. They will pass straight through without making a hole. If you use a rocket launcher, it will hit the window explode in the room without damaging the window. This is useful when assassinating someone on the street.
Starfish Island: Appear to be shrunk: Go to Starfish Island and find any mansion that has trees in its backyard. Stand next to the "tree" and you will appear as if you have shrunk very small. The "trees" behind the Starfish Island houses are actually big patches of grass.
Starfish Island: Garage door: At Vercetti Estate, as you go up the left side stairs in the front and go towards the front door, you will hear the garage door open and it will come up from beneath you.
Vercetti Estage: Big faced bills: In the Versetti Estate, go into the office at the top of the main stairs where you save the game. Select a sniper rifle. Then, directly right in front of the safe and crouch down. Zoom in and look at the bills. The one closest to Tommy (and some others) have the new style big heads paper currency. If this game takes place in the 1980s, they should be the old small head style bills.
Invisible: From the Pole Strip Club, Get a PCG 600 and go to the Pole Strip Club go has fast has you can go at the main entrance of the pole strip club and jump of you PCG 600 so the bike will go in the Pole Strip Club and then you go into the Club and get on the PCG 600 and then go back out and everything should be invisible.
