It took five years and the work of over 1000 people to complete it, so fans of GTA can enjoy the new game in the fictional state of San Andreas (the GTA version of Southern California) and the three main characters, instead of one.

Adjust the camera

You can adjust how high or low the camera hovers behind your vehicle while driving in the display options.

Take a selfie
To take a selfie, all you have to do is slick the right stick while using the Snapmatic app, your photos will be on the Rockstar Social Club.

Interact with pedestrians
If you want to interact with them, press right on the D-pad near pedestrians and they’ll respond. The first couple of times your character will say something positive, but be careful, because then your character will insult them, and if you insult the wrong person, they’ll start a fight with you.

Country cops
The countryside police response time is longer.

Adjust your headlights
Press right on the D-pad to cycle your headlights between off, main beam, and full beam.

Fill your ammo
You can fill a gun’s ammo capacity completely while shopping in Ammunation. Select the ammo type for the weapon in question, then press X on Xbox, or circle on PS3 to switch to ‘full ammo’.

Reply to emails

If you receive an email on your phone from another character, you can reply by pressing A on Xbox or X on PS3.

Toughen your getaway car

When a getaway vehicle is required, always take your chosen car to Los Santos Customs first and fit it with bulletproof tires, an armour, and anything else that might be useful.

Clean kills
The cleanest kill that will earn you the most points from Cletus, is to shoot your targets through the heart.

Play your favorite song
While in a vehicle, hold left on the D-pad to slow down time and bring up the radio station radial menu. This gives you time to flick through stations to find a song you like without worrying about crashing.

Bunny hop on a bike
This only works with certain types of bike. Hold the right bumper on Xbox or R1 on PS3 to do a bunny hop on a bicycle.

Find collectibles using Chop
If you have the iFruit app, you can send Chop to look for collectibles. Select ‘make Chop hunt for pick-ups’ and he’ll run towards any in the vicinity, barking more as he gets closer.

Adjust your car in mid-air

To adjust the orientation of your car while in mid-air, use the left stick. This makes landing stunt jumps much easier and increases a character’s driving skill.

Fire truck fun
While driving a fire truck, press the right bumper on Xbox or R1 on PS3 to activate the water hose. You can always try spraying some pedestrians.

Watch your depth
Be careful if you dive deeper than 486 meters in a submarine, the controller will vibrate as a warning, don’t ignore it or you’ll be crushed.


You can join the Epsilon Program cult/religion, but you must complete the missions ‘Father/Son’ and ‘Pulling Favors’, then take part in the Epsilon Program Identity Evaluation on their website.

Fly a jumbo jet
You can fly some of the big passenger jets at the airport. Press Y on Xbox or triangle on PS3 anywhere near it to get in. Your character will suddenly appear in the cockpit. To explore the airport freely without getting any wanted stars, buy a hangar there.

Kill your friends
If you run into one of the three characters on the street, you’ll sometimes get the option to hang out. If you kill them, you’ll get an angry text from them later and have to pay their medical bills.

Wealthy bike owner

If you encounter with a bike thief, make sure you return it to the owner, who may be a wealthy CEO, and will reward you with $100,000 of stock in his company later in the game.

Security trucks

Passing security vans will be marked blue on your radar. If you have sticky bombs, attach one to the back doors and blow them off to get the money inside. This will, naturally, alert the cops.

Customised parachutes
You can customize your parachute’s color and pattern in Ammunation.
