10 Tips For Sleeping Dogs: A Pup's Mini-Guide
Eliminate Traffic (Glitch)
Late in the game, a story mission depicts some memorable events at a wedding. Once that mission has been completed, you can re-visit the church. Enter it again by scaling the construction objects. Inside, descend the stairs and proceed to the double doors. As you pass the last flight of stairs, you'll hear the sound of dishes breaking. Head quickly back outside and you'll find that the streets are bare, except for police cruisers that patrol randomly or appear once you commit a crime.
This glitch has been tested on the PlayStation 3 version of the game and may not work on other versions. A future title update may also prevent the glitch from functioning as described.
Start by getting arrested by the police. You'll appear in the jail yard. From there, you should steal a vehicle and start driving away. Look for a larger vehicle and get near to it, so that you can leap out of the current vehicle and grab onto the larger vehicle (positioning is important, so that you don't just fall onto the street). The new vehicle needs to be large enough that you can hang from its side or rear (such as a police van or truck). Continue to hang from that vehicle and prompts will appear. Rather than pressing buttons to remain on the vehicle, let it drive around until finally you drop from it and fall to the street. When your character stands up after taking the fall, he will be invincible. Bullets pass right through you without doing any damage.
To make money quickly, bet on the cock fighting in Kennedy Town. Since the betting limit is 100K, you can win as much as 200K each time. Just save your game before you start risking money, then reload your save file if you lose. In this manner, you can quickly amass a fortune.
