INSTRUCTIONAL GUIDE v3.0 check out WWW.GRANDTHEFTAUTOSANANDREAS.COM 1. Hints 'n' Tips 2. 2-Player 3. Weapons 4. Vehicles 5. Schools WELCOME, READER TO THE NEW GAME THAT YOU WILL NOT WANT TO QUIT No, seriously, you WON'T want to stop playing this game that gets 10 out of 10! No! Make it 20 out of 10!! Am I right? This guide will pull you through the basics and get you on a good level in the game so you can get all over the state. Sheesh, we're all in school and you're ticked you have to wait b-fore you can touch the controller again. X-BOX OWNERZ!!! Don't sigh! Rockstar has been thinkin' about upgrading the game so YOU can play it just like the previous two games! Anyway, let's get started. ___________________________________________________________________________ 1. Hints 'n' Tips Carl Johnson (a.k.a. CJ)has just gotten OUT of San Andreas into Liberty City (not been there yet? Play GTA 3), but was thrown back when his mother kicked the bucket. Sweet Johnson, CJ's brother, blames him for the incident and Sweet and his sister Kendl are at each other's throats! Get back to da hood with the getaway vehicle - which turns out to be the newest vehicle on GTA! A BMX bicycle. Hold X to move...oh, but you already knew that...tap X to speed up. Don't worry - you have all the time in the world to get to the cul-de-sac. You'll come across a few members of your gang. Sweet, CJ's bro, Ryder, a long-time friend since high school, and Big Smoke, a tough fighter whos attitude is as big as his stomach. They'll lead you to the hood (what CJ and the others call the cul-de- sac where they live). Upon arriving, you'll be able to enter your own house and save the game. Exit the house and walk into the RED marker (whoa - first in GTA 3 it was blue, Vice City was pink, and now it's red...)to start your missions with Sweet. Yeah, that's it. Whoa! Even that simple bike ride made you experience the fun in this game. Cool, huh? During your missions with Sweet you'll be introduced to the Barber's Shop, how your stamina bar works and how to keep it up, finding all 200 graffiti spots and coverin' em, and some other stuff. Can't wait to rob a house? When you see the R on your radar, that means Ryder wants your help. Go to him! His first or second mission involves robbin' someones apartment. Dead fun! I guess you've spotted the train tracks too. Remember in GTA 3 where you could ride the train? This time you can as well. You need to find a station...or a subway station called Market Station. Try getting into the front carriage! Wha..? You can't get to San Fierro...? Or Las Venturras...? What a load of b...ah, there's got to be a way..I suppose just like in the previous games you have to do all missions in Los Santos before the big roadtrip. HEY! Guess what. Take a dip. No, seriously! You're not gonna die! Yes I know your character always drowned in the last games, but this time Carl can swim! Yeah! Go on! Hold the X button to swim fast. TAP the X button to swin faster (this trick also works on land, it's known as the Super Sprint). Push the O button to dive and when underwater, hold X to move. Just don't forget to come up for air. (Don't bother swimmin' to other islands, there's no place to get up on and the cops are tipped off on your illegal entry) Press and hold the L1 button (on foot). You'll see all kinds of cool stats and it even tells you what day it is! Been putting on some weight there. Eating out a lot, huh. Head over to the local gym and work out. You'll even build muscles while you're at it. Don't overwork CJ or he'll faint. A lot of cars around. Hey look at that one! A lowrider. That may come in handy in a later mission. Look at that car! Over there! See it? A Convoy. You'll only see these in the countryside, so go ahead and head over. If you haven't breaken those barriers yet, then head over to Red County and find one. Uh oh, now you've done it! The police are comin'! Watch out for the fuzz! Here comes Detective Doughnut! Snort! Snort! The cops are a lot more forceful here in San Andreas. You can still get away with stuff, but one scratch on a copper's car and the pigs in blue are after you. They go to great lengths to get you busted. They'll even hitch a ride on your bumper! Ah, finally! There's a highway here! And the cars actually go fast! Much better than the last couple games where everyone was moving ssssslllllooooowwwwwlllllyyyyy. Rockstar put in a buttload of cheats for this game - much more than any GTA game. Check out the cheats section of this website to see 'em all! _____________________________________________________________________________ 2. 2-Player Didja see the playerz thing on yer case? 1-2 Players. That's right. A 2-player GTA game. Head on over to Idlewood in Los Santos to find a figure of two red stickmen to start, or two skulls for the co-op missions.
