Cheats, Codes & FAQs
If you go pick up Barbara for a date, she might say that you aren't fat enough to take her out. Instead of having to gain weight to be able to take her out, you can grab a car and a fellow gang member. To do this you have to have a Sadler and a Grove St. gang member in the car with you. When you do this, you go pick up Barbara for a date and she assumes you're heavy since the Sadler itself is heavy along with the gang member. You HAVE TO have the gang member with you, or else it will not work.

Chillad Challenge Infinite Money Glitch

Just as your about to hit the floor you will respawn where you origanally started and still claim the stunt bonus award.
Continue wearing goggles
If you equip night vision goggles and then play an arcade game, when you quit the arcade game CJ will still be wearing them but the effect will be gone.
Create A Fountain
Grab a boat and head out to some deep waters. Grab a satchel and throw it in the water. For some reason the 'splash' of the impact keeps on going so the water keeps spraying up.
Early Bulletproof Savanna
After you finish the 'High Stakes, Low-Rider' Mission, Cesar and his car stay at the finish line, doors locked. You can push the car to the nearest garage and the doors will become unlocked.
Easy cycling skill
This glitch allows you to upgrade you cycling skill faster. To exploit this glitch you first need to find a bike (no brainer), then you need to find a freight train and wait for it to stop. Do a bunny hop onto the back of the freight train so that you can ride it and stay on the bike. When the train starts to move again the bike will start to slide. At this point press the X button to pedal the bike. The bike should now be floating slightly above the train but will remain in place. You will notice that the wheels of the bike are moving at the some speed as the train even if you let go of the X button. This allows you to get cycling skills faster than with normal bike riding.
Note: CJ and the bike may become invisible while on the train. This is normal and will become visable again once you get off the train.
Free paint jobs at Loco Low co. and Wheel Arch Ang
Tired of having the garages take away your beloved paint jobs on your cars? Don't want to spend $500 on a pretty flame paint job? Take your vehicle of choice to the Mod Shops across the state. When you are in the shop, highlight your painting of choice. Now press X and then Triangle VERY Quickly. Your car should have the paint job and you don't have to pay the money. However, this doesn't work with anything else. (colors, spoilers etc.) Also note that this will not fix up your car, and it will still be beat up.
Thie glitch removes all peds (and cops if it's done right) and cars from the game. It's great to use to explore the territory. On the mission 'Small town bank' for Catalina, after you grab the bikes, you'll end up at the unique jump spot. Jump it, but miss and fall into the river below (It works if you don't get the slow animation for the jump too, but if you do get it, the cops shouldn't be on the map as well as the peds). After you land in the water, you'll see a floating trooper dead. I don't know why that's there. Swim to Fisher's lagoon and head back to Palomino Creek, were the bank is. Nothing will be there. No cars driving or spawned, and maybe no cops. The alarm at the bank will still be going off, and the only places you will find anyone will be in a store like The Well Stacked Pizza or Ammu-Nation. Entering then exiting those places will not bring back the peds or cars, and the only way to do that is to go and rescue Catalina from the police ambush and take her back to her hideout. However, you can do anything in between the glitch and rescuing her, as she will not be killed by the cops. Just spawn a jetpack or car with a cheat and explore. You can go cover tags and find the oysters and stuff like that without worry that cops or gangs will attack you. Occasionally a parked car will spawn, but they are kinda rare. When you go to rescue Catalina, shoot the surrounding cops with a rifle from far away, and you can pick them off easy, and no other ones will come. I don't know what happens if you die or kill Catalina, so you can try it if you like and tell me about it and I'll correct this.
Girlfriend bonus glitch
If you have dated any one of the girlfrined who give you a bonus Such as Katie or Barbara and you restart the game you will still have the bonuses they give you even if your not dating them!!

Mountain Bike Morphing
This glitch is similar to the bike morph glitch in vice city, but it has a limited area that you can use it. In this area you can not fall off the bike, so you can do flips and all other kind of insane stunts. To do this glitch you need:1: Go to the top of Mount Chiliad
2: Get a Parachute (theres one by the Journey on top of the Mountain)
3: Get on the mountain bike parked at the top of the mountain to start the mission The Chiliad Challenge
4: Use the ramp to the left of the beginning of the mission to fly of the mountain. Jump off in midair and open the parachute.If done correctly you should now be morphed with the bike (parachute still open) Now you can do insane stunts without falling of your bike.

Simply get in a plane or helicopter, at any stage during the game, and fly outside the games boundaries. Once you reach water, fly towards the end of the map and simply keep going for a few minutues, and eventually the whole map of San Andreas is revealed! This is a very helpful glitch to exploit, as it doesn't affect anything negatively and the map will always be revealed; even after the game is saved!
Skip Songs on Radio
You can skip songs on the radio. Change to another station, then change back to the station playing the song you hate.

Change back to the original station, and it will have skipped whatever song it was playing.
Stop enemies from attacking your territories
At any time (until time runs out and they actually take over) get in either a cop car, firetruck, or ambulance and press R3 to start the secondary mission and then press it again to end the mission. This will make it so the attack has stopped, you keep your territory, and it will have no negative effect on your game (unlike the safe house glitch).

Super Bike Jump
This requires that you are have a gun that can be used while riding a bicycle. Immediately after you release the jump button (L1), tap circle. You should tap and release fast enough so the gun does not actually fire. You can jump over 2 stories high this way if you time it right.
Taking Gang Territory: Fish In A Barrel
While trying to take over gang territory, take one of the datable girls with you. Between waves of enemy gang members, if you give your girlfriend a gift or kiss them, the enemy gang members will freeze in place. They won't notice you around them, but if you throw a grenade at them or otherwise threaten them, they'll un-freeze. Grab a rocket launcher or molotov and you can take over territory really easy. Also, this would give you a chance to get the health and armor pickups in the area without being shot at.

When using a tractor you can pickup other vehicles by lowering the lift using the R stick, you can use this to super slingshot yourself and a semi truck.

Weapons other than SMGs w/ two players in a vehicl
