Fun things to do in GTA 4


So you've finished the game

For those of you who have been playing the GTA series every since the original GTA (birds eye view mode :) ) I'm sure you've all played Grand Theft Auto 4 and played it compulsively until your reached the end.

The only thing is now you're done and you finished most of the side missions your running around trying to find fun things to do so here is a list of things you can do to make the most of the GTA 4 environment. I've been playing gta iv xbox and pc its great on both:)


let the fun begin :)

Crazy Taxi Driver - hire a taxi and select a location on the other side of town, once the taxi starts moving tell the driver to "hurry up" and he will start driving recklessly crashing into things and ignoring stop signs and red lights. Then increase your wanted level to maximum, and enjoy the ride. Its hilarious to watch the cops slamming into you and shooting at the driver from the safety of the back seat

Mad Playground - Theres a swing set in a playground in south slopes that has a glitch in it, drive a car up to it, hit it, then park up touching it and it will send you flying, dam insane, from ryan

Stunt - complete all the bike stunts around the city there is around 50 from what I remember.

Fire Hydrant- Blow the top off a fire hydrant then jump on your bike and ride that wave sky high:)

911 - Call the cops and then rush around punching as many people as you can when the cops arrive they will see people attacking you and promptly arrested those mean mean people. You can also call the fire brigade and ambulance.

Fire Department - jump in a firetruck and give those dirty homeless a good spraying.

Car Domino's - Line up a whole bunch of cars then fire off a rocket or grenade to see a domino explosion effect, you may have to make sure you've damaged the cars enough.

Army Chopper - Visit the airport and grab the army helicopter with the minigun and terrorize the island.

Airport Madness - Get a full wanted rating and then head to the airport with a bike and run circles around the cops its especially fun to place yourself in the middle of the back wheels of a moving airplane and watch the cops try to get to you cause nothing stops a giant boeing 747 , those cops get squished and thrown around all over the place.

Friendly Fire - play a lan game with friendly fire off and hit each other with those rockets and watch yourself fly like a birdie.

Stripathon 3some - go the strip club and get as many lap dancers into the private room as possible ( this can get quite tricky to get the dancers to ask you for a private dance but ppl have been known to get 2 or even up to 3 dancers into one room)

Cinematic Challenge - grab a fast car or a strong vehicle switch on cinematic camera mode and see how long you can last while the cops are after you it can be quite entertaining in this camera mode.

Pool throw - start a pool game then get out and just pelt those balls at your opponents head , no one messes with nico bellic

Scream Wheel - grab a car that's full of passengers and take them for the ride of there life , you wont even need the radio on cause they provide enough noise through screaming and oh my god'ss.

Really Rough S*XX - Go find your local hooker and get her into your car, then use your mad driving skills to get the car to flip over and then do the dirty business upside down.

Burnouts - hold the forward and backwards keys at the same time and see that smoke go ( not much smoke really) but you can do donuts by using the directional keys which is quite fun.

Scroll to Continue

Bike simulator - grab a bike, then switch into first person view and try to drive at high speeds without crashing ( can be quite tricky).

Fastest Car - Near the old mansion on alderny island , you will find one of the fastest cars in the game the Sultan RS

Falling Boat - use the boat cheat code to drop a speed boat on unsuspecting people. I may add a gta 4 cheats page if there isn't already one

No hands - grab your sniper rifle or any other gun if your accurate and shoot the driver of a car straight in the head, sometimes he will come to a stop other times he will keep driving all over the place fun to watch.

Fast lane - grab a bike and find the longest road you can find then fly down it without crashing.

Drunken Bowling - go get drunk at he bar then hit the bowling centre its tricky stuff that 10 pwin boolin.

Down with the Burgers - head towards a burger place or cluckin bell grab a car and barricade the door jump over the car into the restaurant and cause havoc and see how long you can withstand the cops, as long as the car blocking the door stays in tack it could last forever but it usually gets blown up eventually.

Look Ma no tires - blow up all the tires on your car jump in , get a wanted level and see how long you last.

Choppy - use the chopper blades to rip people to bits.

Watch me die - of course another great fun part of GTA 4 is the video editor which you can use to create some pretty funny dying sequences and add music , effects and all that other swish stuff.

Hit that boat - find a ramp near the water and drive your bike off it and try and hit a boat that's driving by. extremely tricky to do:P

Rollercoaster Fun - Head over to the fun park on Firefly island grab a nice smallish fast car and wizz around the roller coaster track.

Pig Ride - Grab a helicopter and get a decent wanted level , land your helicopter and try and take off as the cops try and drag you out , now fly off with the cops clinging onto your chopper, and belt them around the skyscrapers.

Hooker Free or Not - Go pick up an old fashioned hooker off the streets in your car, find somewhere quiet to park your car and send the kids out of the room, then you can choose whether or not to let her keep the money you just paid her.

Carpark Frenzy - Get a high wanted level and then head to a crowded car park and wait for the explosion. I hear there's a crowded car park in alderney island

Fly a Friend - Great fun on multiplayer is to jump in a helicopter with a friend then try and drop him off on unreachable buildings, or even drop him on the top of the statue of liberty.

Move Aside - I'm sure you probably have tried it but get a cop car or fire truck and put the sirens on and everyone will clear a path for you on the road.

Probably the most fun you can have it playing the multiplayer with a bunch of friends so lots of stuff to try out there also the GTA 4 engine and physics are quite well done so testing all the physics out can be great fun.

I also hope none of these idea's offended anyone it is GTA after all and only a game have fun:) and anyone with fun things that aren't on the list don't be afraid to comment and let me know as i'm still addicted to that game and looking for things to do. and also remember GTA 1 is freeware so you can download and play for free if you miss the classic:).

Ha, I remember this page, I made a show of my self when I was nine, it makes me ducking cringe

Zach on December 09, 2013:

U know wats fun getting a 3 star wanted level taking a buzzard and getting the explosive sniper cheat and sniping cop veicles and choppers out of the sky

harri on September 04, 2012:

you can take a helicopter up to the top of a building with your friends in it and when you get to the top just try and push them off winner stays on

Jack on July 25, 2012:

Call Romans taxi and tell him to drive to a waypoint very far away. While he is driving start shooting and no matter how many cops chase you, he will keep driving

Rick on June 08, 2012:

In Playboy X's penthouse, if you go out to the balcony, then go past the jacuzzi, if you jump over the railing in just the right spot you can hop onto the roof over there. get a wanted level, then crouch down behind the wall looking at the door across the way that playboy escapes through on the kill Playboy mission. Cops will come through it and try to get to you by jumping over the ledge, they don't realize there is a small gap between the buildings, and they all fall to their deaths. Hang out there for a half an hour like I did and the huge pile of dead cops who all jumped to their deaths on the ground down below is hilarious.

dBoy sWag gAng on May 04, 2012:

Gta 4 is da best. i especialy like sky divin off a heli wth the rpg n sumtimes wn u hit da floor the rocket in the rpg explodes sendin u flyin. oh n its very tricky to do diz bt wn u got six stars n wn the cops heli arrive try to jump on top n see how long u cn last.better if u do it in the empire state bulding.

levias ferreira on February 27, 2012:

What is do is going to skate park by the burgershot close by the pier use a heat for cross-bike shanzez is the name not sure, but take the bike and get to the skate park and do some stuns like slato's and stuff :D

stephen on January 01, 2012:

you know the highway in alderney ? well at the south of the highway near the nuclear plant ,theres a piece of guard rail missing. get 2 star wanted level ( not 3 as helicopter wont make the plan run easy) and hover just out over the missing guard rail and the police will come and run right off the edge of the highway and explode while hitting the ground below , its soo fun XD

TooMuchSoda on December 29, 2011:

Fly a heli and crash into buildings til it wrecks, watch yourself going down with the flamin heli.

stevonz on December 17, 2011:

I think you might have the ability to become a hooker. When i was walking down the street this lady came up in her car and said 'wohoo' and it sayd hold 'f' to enter car. unfortunately might wanted level was one and i got arrested.

Has this happened to anyone and what happens if you go with her?

Ty on December 04, 2011:

Forget having friendly fire on, grab a buddy on free mode and team up on everyone in a helicopter!

Eventually people will get mad and grab some RPG's! Then the pilot needs to dodge rpgs while the passenger is trying to gun them down with a ak-47.

Plus you can chase down cars and gun them down.

Now THAT's a war zone lol!

Doug on November 29, 2011:

One of my favorite games is grenade chase. Get a wanted level of 3 or more stars then drive down the freeways and drop grenades out the windows for the cops behind you.

It's tricky to get the hang of but if you typically hold the grenade for 3 - 4 seconds and then drop it, you can decimate the cops that are following even closely behind you. Sometimes if you drop the grenade too late, it blows you own car forward at like 150 mph with your rear on fire like a bat out of hell. Always fun and funny.

I also like stealing hummers, taking them to the freeway and then literally driving over and through oncoming traffic. A lot of times if you hit another car head on or just hard enough, the driver will die and keep driving.

It's such a huge sandbox environment that there are always things to do. It was designed to maximize jumps and all other kinds of things.

Cookiemonster on November 20, 2011:

I just like to go to the top of very high buildings, and then either driving off them or just freefalling. XD

random ped on November 19, 2011:

get a heavy car and go fast and hit the car, if u hit it hard enough the person will die inside or fly out the windshield.

MACCA on November 12, 2011:

how do u get video editor???? i got a ps3

Scott on November 06, 2011:

Thanks I will definently try some of this stuff

vasily on October 28, 2011:

Yeh nice thanks i bibnt complete the game cos its stops working at first mannys mission so im just trying to get past police to the other islands.

Voraxith on October 28, 2011:

I love this damn game so damn much! I swear, I should attend GTA Anonymous or something -- even though I've beaten it so many times, I just can't stop playing it. Plus, with all the mods and cheats available, the replayablity is endless! I'm to the point now that I actually want to try making my own mods, but I have no idea how to, and all my Google/YouTube searches come up with nothing.

dylan on October 27, 2011:

cool and i got a web to i is called gta iv cheats and the botom one

tye on October 25, 2011:

thanks man i realy got board

Peperez on October 22, 2011:

hello im from brazil and i like gta 4 very much and i aprecciate your hints thank you

liam pile on October 08, 2011:

playing multiplayer and got so bored.So i got in a chopper and shot my teamate he got angy and chopped of my head here is another thing to do get a ak-47 and shoot little jacob in the head and he will say some crazy stuff. he is so weird he talks crazy and if someone has gta4 on computer can they be friends with you on ps3

DK!! on September 22, 2011:

I like GTA IV much more than Red Dead Redemption because there are much more to do when finished the game. In R-D-R you just help ppl who got their horse stolen or you can go hunting and shoot ppl. in GTA it's stunts, shooting and even dating and if that isn't enough you can start a BPF (Big Ppl Fight)

christian on September 21, 2011:

fido is the name of the character in gta liberty city

jj on September 12, 2011:

this game is a beast I love everythig about it

mike on September 12, 2011:

Need better cars

harnoor on September 12, 2011:

I alos love this game

DK!! on September 08, 2011:

I use to get a helicopter and fly real high and jump out and try to hit water ponds like that in the park (i think it's called middle park) it can be tricky but i think it's fun :) and try to jump of tall buildings next to a road and hit the roof of the cars ;D

jack on September 07, 2011:

what are mods

Bibek on August 29, 2011:

I usually get the chopper and land of tall building and use sniper gun to kill people; increase my wanted level. And then when cop choppers arrive, shot the chopper pilot with sniper and it goes down. Fun to watch haha!

DoPeMaN82 on August 26, 2011:

1.- use slomo mode by pressing horn in free cam mode and try out the sidewalks to get a bloody brainsmashing bodylaunching small action movie and see peeps fly.

2.-Fly as high possible and then swing with heli back and forth to make the propellor hit ur body and make Niko shoot away in mid air n watch m smash into buildings pavement enz ;P on August 25, 2011:


Piers on August 21, 2011:

When does GTA London come out? That'll be fantastic. I really did love GTA IV and it's packages though i have to admit. You can almost *EVERYTHING* on it, unlike boring games such as Fight Night,Cod etc. It's an amazing game, and always has been! I do miss San Andreas though!

Dylan Jones on August 20, 2011:

hey try and get a nrg-900 and go as fast as u can and

then hit a car, you'll go flying ROFL

GTAmong3r! on August 14, 2011:

Ps3 doen't have a video editor does it.

warren on August 13, 2011:

InvisibleMuffin on August 03, 2011:

Motorcycle parkour. Nuff said.

woutie on August 03, 2011:

hi, what a great list!

thanks for sharing.

currently working on a "Fun Times in Liberty City" video for the web (youtube/gametrailers/gamespot).

I will definetly use these great suggestions, laughed my ass off reading them!

Greatings from Holland.

Erik on July 28, 2011:

Try pushing pedestrians off of high places and watching them fall. Now these aren't the best directions, but if you're on the first island, if you go to the the first weapons store that opens up, then a little bit towards the left (almost near the water, but not quite,) theres the little area where there isn't a guard rail, and you can just walk into pedestrians until they tumble over the side, and you walk away whistling. Its entertaining. Sorry for the terrible directions, haha, its the best i could do. The area is rotterdam hill

Static on July 28, 2011:

Get a fast bike, and drive high speeds into an oncoming car or low wall, see how far you fly, remember, helmets can save your life!

albert on July 23, 2011:


ideas are grate

jasorocks on June 30, 2011:

do you need to have xbox live to make a video on gta iv the ballad of gay tony

Eric on June 19, 2011:

I like to crash my car into the guys working on the trunk of there car and seeing if they get caught in the trunk. I also like to get in a helicopter with roman but rite before he gits in lift off and he dangles and sometimes still talk to you even though he is a few thousand feet in the air

g-man on June 14, 2011:

wheres a cheat for no more f-n cops

Bob The Builder on June 08, 2011:

nico belic on June 04, 2011:

WRONG gta 3 was some guy called tony

D33R on May 14, 2011:

GTAPlayer on May 11, 2011:

Anyone Tell Me How to hang On A Car In Pc

poop loop on May 11, 2011:

Go to the cabaret club and shoot one of the security guards. once you do that, a bunch of mob members will come after you. then use the "wanted down" cheat when the cops get there and watch them fight the mob members.

Renegade on April 24, 2011:

Is there a San Andreas style cheat whereby you are never wanted?? That would be epic

anul fair on April 21, 2011:

GTA IV is frigen amazing i like bumming ladies

lol on April 21, 2011:

take a super gt and drive fast and try to go under a semi trailor and u can turn

uuuuu!!! on April 04, 2011:

ragdolls are fun!

Mnah on April 01, 2011:

Take an annihilator, fly as high as you can, and jump into the water. You'll never die!! I like to get some forward momentum going first and see if I can jump over an entire island, land in a pond, etc.

Also, getting on any of the half-sunken ships laying in the water near the edge (couple along the coast of third island just south and west of Happiness Island) makes a great place for a last stand. Not only can you destroy the cops that gather along the shore, but sometimes, if you snipe the pilot out of a helicopter while it's over water, it'll crash like usual but won't blow up. When it works, the "underwater" helicopter stays on your radar, but can't hurt you, and they won't send a replacement to mess with you.

Happiness Island is great if you want to spawn a vehicle and run over tons of pedestrians, plus there aren't many cops, and you can hide from the helicopters they send since no one already has a visual on you (aka your stars are grey instead of white). If you shoot any gun when there's a helicopter anywhere on the island, it'll come toward you, but if you're fast enough, you can still find cover, and it'll just keep flying around trying to find you, which they're really not very good at, realistically.

Darian on March 27, 2011:

The thing i found the funnist for me is to take a big truck like a semi, trash truck, flatbed, ETC then take an old beater but car and place it at the bottom of a hill and drive your truck down the hill ounce or twice then try to drive the car the whole left/right side is ussaly dented in and the car is still on but has a extreamly hard time moveing with 2 or 3 tires bent in.. Peace
