It is worth checking it out as you will reveal a lot of secrets in the game!


GTA IV Specials

Prank Calls

Here's something good to try. During the adventure through Liberty City, you may find phone numbers written in inconspicuous places, such as on the side of a building or in the subway. If you dial these numbers correctly, you will usually get someone on the other end of the line that you can subsequently prank.

Fire Truck
GTA IV(54894)

If you boost a fire truck, press the fire button while driving around. This will allow you to shoot the super-powerful water cannon at anyone around you. Watching people react to getting shot with high-speed water is just utterly hilarious.

Statue of Happiness

Head to the Statue of Happiness on Happiness Island with a helicopter. Have the helicopter drop you off on the very top of the statue. You'll find a sign up there that states "No Hidden Content Beyond This Point", but it is actually a lie. If you head inside of the statue from this area, you'll find an actual beating heart inside the statue. How ridiculously creepy is that!



Fire Truck

Fire trucks are awesome vehicles to use to cause complete and utter destruction in Liberty City. But, even these vehicles are susceptible to damage. Oddly, if the fire truck catches on fire and is about to explode, you can actually utilize the fire truck's very own water sourc

GTA IV(54886)
e to put its own fire out which is just amazing and also makes the fun last longer in the fire truck.

How To Restart A Broken Car

If your car gets horribly damaged and stalls or refuses to start, call the emergency number 911 on your from your phone in the game. When they pick up, hang up your phone straight away, and your car should start once more!

Losing the annoying Cops

No matter the extent of your wanted level, if you can make it back safely to one of your safe houses and go to your bed and go to save, the cops will be automatically be gone and you will be free. The best thing about this is that you don’t even have to actually save the game – you can just access the save menu and then cancel the save. As long as you reach this menu, you definitely won’t have to worry about the annoying cops chasing you once you go back outside your safe house.

Friendship Perks

To unlock the perks of friendship with any stated person below, reach the friendship as level listed below.

Brucie - Brucie likes to drink, eat, play bowling, go to strip clubs, go shows, helirides and cruise in a boat. If you get his friendship level up to 70%, you can call Brucie and he will friendly dispatch a helicopter to your location, allowing you to utilize it as you like.

Packie - Packie likes to go to shows and strip clubs, play darts, play bowling,

GTA IV(54887)
drink and play billiards. If you get his friendship level up to 75%, you can call Packie and he'll make you a potent car bomb that you can use when ever you need it.

Roman - Roman likes to play bowling, play darts, go drinking, eat, play billiards, go to shows and to strip clubs. If you get his friendship level up to 60%, you can call Roman and he will send you a free cab to use anywhere in the city. This will mean you can save your money for other awesome things in the game.

Dwayne - Dwayne likes to go strip clubs, drink, eat, go to shows and play bowling. If you get his friendship level up to 60%, you can call Dwayne and he will send you a car full of gang members that will follow you and help you out as you need them. This is very helpful through out the game as in many missions you will need to kill a group of people with the cops on your tail.

Little Jacob - Little Jacob likes to play darts, go to shows, play billiards, eat, drink, and go to strip clubs. If you get his friendship level up to 70%, you can call Little Jacob and he will drive a car to your location full of guns that you can purchase from him. This may not sound too impressive but believe me gun ammunition runs out pretty fast.

How To Gain Money Easily

Head to an ATM anywhere in the city, and cause traffic jam in the area. Wait for someone to approach the ATM and take money out of it, and then eliminate that person. The traffic jam should ensure that no ambulance can reach the injured person, so if you run a short distance away and return, you can grab the money that dead person dropped over and over again.


How To Get Free Taxi Rides

Here's a great way to get a free taxi fare. Hail a taxi and get inside, and head to your destination. Right before you get to your destination, bust out the back window and point your gun out of the window (using the corresponding controls). Doing so will freak the taxi driver out. He'll stop the car and run away, leaving you near your destination without forcing you to pay for the ride.

100% Completion

How To Access Used Cheats Easily?

Almost always, when you enter a cheat into your cell phone, you can access it automatically from the phone's main menu ("Cheats"), so you do not have to enter the long complicated phone number again!


Fantastic Unlockables

The Statue of Happiness Shirt

Head over to the Statue of Happiness in the game and climb up as far as you can go but has to be a good reasonable distance. Head around the left side of the statue from where you entered. When you do this, the game will pause briefly and load a new shirt that your character will be wearing. This is a great souvenir for visiting the statue! Isn’t that just cool? Also it is very simply to do.

GTA3 Outfit
GTA IV(54893)

At one point in the game, you will be given an option to kill Playboy X or Dwayne, and you must choose one or the other. If you kill Playboy X, you can use his loft and change clothes there at any time. Amongst your change of clothes will also get an outfit from GTA3 - tight black jacket and green cargo pants.
