Grand Theft Auto: Vice City reference:
During the introduction sequence for the Biker Heat mission, the poster above Maria's bed depicts members of the imaginary rock band Love Fist, which was the band Tommy Vercetti befriended and completed missions for in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.
Hitman called off:
When you get to Staunton Island after the first few missions there, go to your safehouse and there should be a mission called \"Making Toni\", after doing this you get a phone call from Ma Cipriani saying how proud she is of you and the hitman are called off.
Good citizen bonus:
Occasionally you will see a cop chasing someone down the sidewalk. If you run up to the person being chased and punch him, you will get a $50 Good Citizen Bonus. Make sure to only punch him once; if you continue and kill the person, the cop will want to fight you.
Make it snow:
To change the weather to snow, find the auto shop in Portland. Start the car dealership missions where you must sell cars to people by doing what they want. If you manage to reach level 9, it will start snowing to make it more difficult to drive in. REMEMBER: This weather does not last all the time.
Unlimited shotgun ammunition:
Stand outside the Ammu-Nation store and target the man behind the counter. Kill him, then take his shotgun and drive away a few blocks. Return to the store, and he will have respawned with another shotgun, which you can once again take from him.
Chrome plated bat:
Enable the "Chrome traffic" code, then pick up a bat at your Portland safe house.
In the beginning of the game you can buy anything desired. During one of the first missions you must go to Ammu-Nation. Select the a pistol and you will not be charged. You can also go to the Pay N Spray for free the first few times.
Easier mission completion:
When you get to the point where you can do missions for Ma Cipriani ("C" on the map), do not continue them until they are your only option. After Ma's "No Son Of Mine" mission, she will send hit men after you. They will continue to appear until they are all killed, making future missions more difficult to complete.
Love on the Rocks Mission
Before you start the mission get the AK or the M4. Then, start the mission and watch the cutscene where Donald tells you to meet his guy. Go meet him under the bridge and then watch the cutscene and then enable the "spawn rhino" cheat and crash through the cars. When you get to the van, kill eveyone and then get out of there (if the van is damaged, respray it before going to Love's place). When you get there, Love is pissed off. The mission is passed with no money.
