Fast And Free Vehicle Repairs
When your vehicle is damaged and messed up, did you know you don't have to pay to repair it? Just park your vehicle and get out of it. Do a quick save with your phone and reload that quick save. Your vehicle will be exactly where you left it, but will be in perfect condition. Useful if you have an expensive and/or customized vehicle, because it can be expensive to repair.
Taxi Money (Exploit)
Hijack a taxi and start driving it around. When you are assigned a job by the dispatch operator, accept the job and follow the GPS path to reach the waiting customer. Once you pick up the customer, take a roundabout route to the requested destination. Your passenger will have to pay for the ride according to the distance driven, even if the fare winds up in excess of $1000 because you went joyriding. This is an efficient way to obtain money near the start of the game.
Free Weapon Upgrades (Exploit)
During a mission, visit an Ammu-Nation and purchase a weapon and all upgrades. Kill yourself after and the mission will fail. This will give you all your money back, however if you visit the Ammu-Nation again, the upgrades on the weapon will still be marked as purchased.
Very Easy Money (Exploit)
In the ocean near the north side of the map, you can check underwater to find a crashed airplane. When the airplane crashed, a briefcase full of money (around $12,000) also found its way to the sea bed. You can swim to find the wreckage and the briefcase. After you collect that briefcase, you can then immediately switch to another character and then switch back to the one who was located near the briefcase. When you do, the briefcase will have reappeared. The character who is underwater will collect the case again and his supply of air will return. You can repeatedly use this trick to quickly amass a small fortune.
Spawn Go Kart
Take out the phone a dial the numbers "538-555-0195" and in front of you will be a go kart.
To get more character customizations, go onto the Lifeinvader social network. If you log in and begin "Stalking" people, you will begin unlocking new character customizations. To get new hair styles for instance, stalk Herr Kurtz Barber.
Fallout: New Vegas Reference
Near the north side of the map, you'll find a diner called Up-n-Atom that has a statue of a rocket positioned next to it. The color scheme resembles the one used for the Rocket Souvenir item in Fall Out: New Vegas. If you get near the rocket, you'll hear the sound of radiation, like you'd get from a reader in the Fallout series.
Familiar Character References
If you're paying attention, you can find references in the game to characters that should be familiar if you played past GTA titles.
- Brucie Kibbutz returns on Bleeper, GTA’s equivalent to Twitter.
- Niko Bellic’s old friend Packie McReary returns. Franklin can help him during a heist, and he’ll be part of your crew for the rest of the game.
- Niko Bellic is mentioned during the first heist, described as an “Eastern-European” that was making a name for himself back in Liberty City and got out of the business.

Tips and Tricks
To break out the window just hold the triangle but to smash car window. Then to hotwire it, tap L2 and R2 quickly.
If players complete all Gun Range challenges, they will receive a 25% discount at all Ammu-Nation stores.
Armored Vehicles Mean Easy Money
In the beginning hours of the game, one of the easiest ways to make money is to rob an armored vehicle. They appear as blips on the minimap while you are driving around. Take out the drivers, then shoot the back doors in the center by the handles to have it open. Collect the money, which is often worth over $5000, then escape the cops.
