Look at the sign next to the door. It says No Hidden Content Here. Enter the door and climb the ladder inside the statue. You will find a big, red, beating heart held in place by chains.
Head inside the old, abandoned Casino where the last mission takes place, at the north end of Alderney. Look at one of the trash piles on the ground to find a purple *** sticking out.

OG Loc CD
In your Bohan safehouse you can find a CD by OG Loc from San Andreas on the floor.
Golf Course Landmarks
At the mini-golf course at Firefly Island you can find a small version of the giant chicken from San Andreas, the lighthouse from the GTA III version of Liberty City, the Watts Towers from Los Santos and the Ocean View Hotel from GTA: Vice City.
Easy One Man Army achievement
To get the One Man Army achivement steal or spawn a helicopter and fly over an island that you don’t have access to yet. It will raise your wanted level to 5 stars. Fly as high as you can and you’ll be flying higher than the police helicopters, then just fly for 5 minutes.
Car Repair Glitch
When your car breaks down and it wont start, get your phone up and type 911. As soon as your call gets through your car will start up again. (This also works for any other number including pre-set ones i.e. Roman’s). It works for every vehicle.
Easy Gobble Gobble Achievement
Go to the bowling alley that you took Michelle on a date to. Choose the left most lane. Move Niko to the left 2 full steps. Throw the ball slowly, you want the speed somewhere around 20 but it doesn’t need to be exact. Do this three times.
Easy Walk Free Achievement
Go to the northern most road in Bohan, the small island where you get a safehouse after your first one gets burned down. There is a point where the elevated train tracks come down and go into a tunnel. Stand beside that place and shoot people and cops until you get 4 stars. Then jump or drive over the edge and land on the train tracks below and head into the tunnel. Just keep going until you are out of the search radius and you lose you wanted level. But to do this you will need to have unlocked the island of Algonquin (the middle one) or else you’ll get 6 stars for crossing under the river.
Easy One Man Army Achievement
At the start of the game drive north to Bohan, the island where you get a safehouse after your first one is burned down. At the very northern most road there is a point where the subway train tracks go from an elevated line to underground. Drive a car from the road onto the tracks and head into the tunnel. Eventually you’ll cross the river and end up on the locked island of Algonquin and receive 6 stars. Stay in the tunnel for 5 minutes and you’ll get the achievement.
When you are running out of bullets, switch the weapon and then switch it back.
P.S. If you’re in a car, if you stop shooting, it reloads by itself.
Get a Statue of Happiness Sweater
Go to the statue of Happiness and walk up to the second level. Walk through the door (it doesn’t swing open, just go through it) and you will walk out with a sweater that has the statue of Happiness on it.
Item Locations on the Map
Go to an in-game computers and enter www.whattheydonotwantyoutoknow.com to unlock map locations for weapons, health, armor, vehicles, pigeons, ramps/stunts, and entertainment.
The Heart of Liberty City
You need to have access to Happiness Island or use a cheat code to spawn a helicopter. Alternately you can find the Helicopter Tours (directly east of Happiness Island) and steal a helicopter. Fly to Happiness Island and once you get over the Statue of Liberty, jump out of the helicopter at the statue’s feet. You should land on the topmost part of the statue, which is basically a square platform with a door in the center of each side.
Run around the platform until you see a door with a plaque on either side of it that reads, “No Hidden Content Here.” The door doesn’t open. You have to walk THROUGH the door. Inside, you’ll find an empty room with a tall ladder. Climb it, and when you reach the top, look up; there is a surprise waiting for you.
Go to an ATM and cause a traffic jam in the area. Wait for someone to take money out of the ATM, then kill them. Make sure you have blocked any nearby roads so an ambulance can’t get to the victim. Take the money they dropped, then run a short distance away and go back. The money should respawn on the ground. You can repeat this as many times as you want. You can also kill more people and take their money from the ATM to increase the amount that respawns.
Get Your Engine Running
If your vehicle breaks down and the engine will not start, simply call 911, and your engine should be up and running.
Honk Your Horn
Get any car and go to a traffic jam. Honk the horn to the beat of “Shave and a haircut” and stop, one of the other cars should respond with “two bits”. Listen carefully, it might be done by a pedestrian instead.
Mr. Tasty and the GTA Theme
When inside a Mr. Tasty truck, one of the the songs the truck plays is the GTA Theme. While playing the song, call ZiT, and a text message will confirm telling you the name of the song.
