Rockstar Game Tips: Speedy Cabs, Fast Cash and More for Grand Theft Auto III: 10 Year Anniversary Edition

Posted on March 27 2012, 4:02pm | Author: R* Z | Filed Under: Games

Whether you're a newcomer to Liberty City following the release of Grand Theft Auto III: 10 Year Anniversary Edition for mobile devices last fall, or if you've been a citizen for over a decade strong, there's much to discover in 'America's Worst City'.

While some of you hardest-of-the-hardcore GTA fans may be well familiar with these, here's a few helpful hints and hidden treasures that many may not be aware of - special tips to nab yourself rare vehicles, fast cash and explosive weaponry...  


You can give those front bumper spikes a proper test against hostile gang peds.

Hop into any kind of yellow taxi and then press the wheel icon on the left side of the screen to start taxi missions. Once you've driven 100 people to their destinations (something you can track in the in-game stats), a red Borgnine will be parked at Borgnine Taxis in Harwood. It's faster and stronger than a regular cab, and it has some seriously killer spikes on the front. We recommend giving it a whirl on El Burro's 'Turismo' race.



Yes, the garage at the docks will gladly accept your busted up bus that you jacked from some guy on the street.

At the Portland docks next to Supa Save, you'll find a shady import/export garage where you can sell vehicles for cash. A list of them are posted next to these garages in Portland and in Shoreside Vale. For each unique vehicle type you deliver, you'll receive $15,000. Complete the full set and you'll get a cool $200,000.



Don't forget the hidden package, floating in the center of the group.

If you head to the tunnel between 8-Ball's hideout and the Supa Save, you'll find some interesting characters inside hoarding molotov cocktails. Dispose of all four of them and pick up some fiery cocktails, excellent for dealing with groups of enemies. Oh, and there's a hidden package too.



Hopping in an Enforcer is a quick way to get armor, something you'll need when you have four stars or more...

Lastly, while it's fairly commonly known that driving an ambulance gives you extra health, a cop car provides a handy shotgun and the fire truck will ironically leave a flamethrower at your safe house after extinguishing 20 fires on each island - many don't know that you can get also armor from an Enforcer. This heavy truck appears a lot less frequently on the road than other emergency vehicles, but if you're lucky enough to find one, just step inside to grab some Kevlar. For a trick to lure one, you could always start a riot and draw the Enforcer out via a four-star wanted level or simply check the lot of the police station on Staunton Island.

        "Whether you're a newcomer to Liberty City ... or if you've been a citizen for over a decade strong..."
        I'm proud to say that I fall into that latter category. In fact, on some application/sign-up forms that I'm not as willing to divulge accurate information with, I'll state 'Liberty City' as my birth place... might try 'El Burro' as my name next time & see if I get away with it.

        Thanks for the tips, Rockstar!

                    what about the crane in the docas (near the import/export garage) ??? I export some emergency vehicles but it's seem to be something like a easter egg (there's not signals about that)..
