Bug: When attacking people in a restaurant, some of them that are sitting will slump over and 'die' with their heads on the table. Yet they are still alive in the game. But you can't lock on to them. You can't kill or hurt them ether. Blood splats, but nothing else. Punching, using melee weapons, shooting, using the chain saw, and even throwing grenades of other uses of explosives doesn't do a thing to them but splatter a little blood. Yet this supposedly 'dead' person will still talk to you if you bump them. Sometimes they'll still do the random compliment or insult and you can still have CJ respond to them.

Quantom X

Bug: On some bridges, the shadows and head lights of the cars on it will be cast on the ground below it.

Quantom X

Bug: One of the cheats for this game is called invisibility or infinite health, depending on where you read it, but it's the same code. However, after using this code, you are still hurt by explosions or fire (if not fire proof), and from falling. Also, if you happen to get hit by two bullets at the same time, it wounds you also, over loading the invincibility cheat.

Quantom X

Bug: When CJ opens the door of the massive AT-400 jet airliner, the door goes right through him.

Quantom X

Bug: Using the continual spawning glitch of civilians in restaurants, if you get to 3 stars, cops start spawning there too. Only they appear with their hands up or crouched in a surrendering position and they never fight you. When they appear, they speak threatening remarks to CJ, but never act.

Quantom X

Factual error: When changing clothes, CJ always does an animation where he inspects the clothing put on him, a different animation depending on where the clothes is. If you change his watch, he holds up his arm and rotates his wrist. But the watch does not rotate with it, despite a wrist rotation also rotating any person's full forearm.

Bug: If CJ stands right behind a chair in Pizza Stack, where he is touching the back of the chair as a person tries to sit in it, the person is partly blocked and can't sit down fully. They still get in the seated position, but are half hanging off the chair and levitating above it. If you move towards the person, it pushes them off the chair and then they stop, just levitating in a seated position beside it.

Quantom X

Other mistake: All the registers in each fast food restaurant say Burger Shot on the screen, even The Clucken Bells and the Pizza Stack.

Quantom X

Bug: Get in a jet and fly towards a corner of the map and keep going. Make sure the jet has autopilot leveling, and leave the control alone. Works better if the cheat for no hunger is activated. Fly off the map and keep going for hours (in game time), approx 12 or so. Then jump out and kill yourself to respawn back on land. This causes the whole map to be covered with Gang Territories.

Quantom X

Other mistake: If you enter the police station in Dillimore (in Red County), the loading screen states you're entering "LSPD HQ", which isn't correct. LSPD HQ is in Los Santos, in Pershing Square. However, the two stations are identical in appearance, and the only major difference is Dillimore's police station has the "Country-style" cops while LSPD HQ has the "City-style" cops.

Bug: If you order food at a fast food restaurant, and then change weapons while CJ is going to the eating animation, it is quite comical. He uses his right hand to eat, which he holds his weapon with. So as he's eating, he also holds his weapon and food together, waving the weapon around and wiping his face. The funniest one is doing that with a chainsaw.

Quantom X

Bug: If you go to the light house area of the beach in Los Santos and start a gang war, sometimes the enemy gang members will spawn under water and be standing on the ocean floor shooting up at you. This is comical to see, and makes it difficult to kill them.

Quantom X

Bug: Go into any pizza restaurant in the game and look at the people sitting down eating. Most of them that raise pizza to their face miss their mouth. Some even are stabbing themselves in the eye with pizza.

Quantom X

Bug: Some cheat codes are incompatible with each other and cause the game to go screwy if used at the same time. If too many cheats are used at once, the game has a tendency to go nuts and even freeze.

Quantom X

Other mistake: In any cut scene where a pistol is used it appears black. but when the mission starts and you use it, it is silver.

Other mistake: In the mission where you go to meet some leaders of the rival gang on the first island (at the motel) and the cops bust it up, a helicopter with 'LAPD' written on the side flies over, which should be LSPD.

Other mistake: Enter Prolaps on Rodeo and the windows of the shop are flat inline with the door, but if you go outside the shop is on a corner.

Bug: To start a Taxi mission, you must have an empty taxi, i.e. nobody else in with you. If you have one or more gang members in it, it tells you that. But you can trick the game. If you get in the taxi and press R3 (or whatever the XBox equivalent is) before the gang members get in, the taxi mission starts. And then the gang members get in and you can have them with you, shooting out at cops and enemy gangs as you do taxi missions. Watch out though, the passenger you pick up as Taxi fare will always get in a back seat. So have no more than 2 gang members with you, and be sure one is in the front passenger seat to leave one back seat open. Park with that open seat closest to the passenger you are picking up, other wise they'll force a gang member out and the other will get out also, and you've lost them for the taxi mission.

Quantom X

Bug: Sometimes, after the glitch happens where no chute comes out of your parachute, when CJ hits the ground, he dies, obviously. But then when the screen fades to black and comes back, CJ is dead yet again outside of the hospital with the Wasted screen happening and fading again to respawn. Meaning sometimes the glitch causes this glitch, that kills you twice. This is an especial pain in the ass if you don't have the girlfriend benefit to prevent weapons and money taken after a hospital visit, and if you have low money, getting charged twice.

Quantom X

Bug: A very annoying glitch that happens quite often is after bailing out of a plane with your parachute, you deploy it... Only the chute never comes out. CJ still goes through the motions as if it came out, and straightens out, raising his arms to hold the ropes. Only there are no ropes, and no chute. So you just fall to your death.

Quantom X

Other mistake: CJ can order his gang members to attack a cop, and the cop won't do anything, except sometimes run away. They can shoot at, hit, and knife the cops, with any retaliation being rare. But all CJ has to do during the attack is point a gun in the cop's direction and suddenly the cop is all about trying to bust or waste CJ.

Bug: If in 2 player mode, you throw a grenade then the two players kiss, the grenade's explosion never happens.

Quantom X

Bug: When using a 2 player icon, often when both players get in the vehicle, one of them does not automatically switch to a fireable weapon in the vehicle. Sometimes both players. The game's programing switches your weapon to the submachine guns for drivebys, but sometimes won't. And you can't change weapons once in the vehicle, so you can be stuck holding a useless gun or melee weapon and have to get out, then back in to use the right one, making it very inconvenient during a police chase. Sometimes player two can still use the incorrect weapon, like shooting out with the M4. This can also happen in 1 player, but is very very rare.

Quantom X

Bug: Every now and then, if you crash your bike into a car, they will murge together and stick. Sparks fly and after a few seconds of vibrating, both explode.

Quantom X

Bug: There is a slanted bridge in Los Flores. The guard rail like barriors are not solid and a bike can be driven right through them.

Quantom X

Bug: This glitch can happen in other areas, but it is most common at the game's airports. Due to the area proximity vehicle spawning, where vehicles off an area are programmed to spawn if you are in or near that area, vehicles that don't belong can spawn in wrong spots. Like if you drive or walk past an air port, forklifts and luggage cars can spawn on the highway near by, as well as regular vehicles randomly driving around in the airport. It is funny when the speed glitch combines with this and you see a fork lift blasting down the Las Venturas highway at 90 MPH.

Quantom X

Bug: On certain roads and highways, traffic can get a super speed glitch. Most notably on the highway that circles Las Venturas. Cars will start jumping around a little in their movements and be doing apparently 100+ MPH. Some will still go slow and often get rear ended causing them to stick together or even explode instantly. Very hazardous for players with slow cars.

Quantom X

Other mistake: If you pick up a hooker in a convertible and park, CJ and the hooker do their typical thing and the camera angle forces a low angle so you can't see in the windows as the car begins rocking and the two make sexual moans. But if you do this in a convertible, you can still see CJ and the hooker just sitting still in the front seats facing forward, not moving at all except for their mouths moving when they talk. The same can be seen if you manage the difficult task of getting a hooker in a car with the doors broken off.

Quantom X

Bug: Sometimes when exiting a building, a random plane will fall from the sky and explode near by. It seems to happen more often in cities. It seems to happen most when leaving a Burger Shot in San Fierro. This is a rare glitch. I have even had the plane kill me a couple times.

Quantom X

Other mistake: On a motorbike you can fire a weapon with your right hand and still accelerate, even though the throttle is on the right hand of the bars.

Bug: Go into 2 player mode, and let player 2 pull out the Katana. If player 2 turns on CJ and kills him with that sword in such a way that his head is cut off, he will respawn in 1 player mode with no head. Just a neck stub with blood constantly spurting out. You can walk around and continue on as headless CJ until the game is reset. All of CJ's spoken lines are cut off after just a couple sounds as well once this happens.

Quantom X

Bug: After bailing out of a plane, it will just stop dead in the air and fall straight down, defying every law of momentum.

Quantom X

Bug: (PS2 version only) In Los Santos, there are 2 houses on the north side of town built on hills. Go investigating and one of the houses (I'm not sure which one) in the backyard area has a pool with the back area walls made entirely of windows. Go to where the windows meet at the corner and you will glitch (go through) the windows and fall through nothingness for about 5-10 seconds before safely landing on a street corner 5 blocks away. This can also be done with a bicycle or motorcycle provided you get it to the window. This glitch has been fixed on the Xbox (GTA: Trilogy) version and cannot be done on that copy.

Other mistake: If you go in a Cluckin' Bell fast food restaurant, look at the glass dispenser - the glasses say Burger Shot, the other fast food chain in the game.

Add time

Bug: Don't know what causes this glitch. But on very rare occasions if you go into a Trans Fender body shop with gang members in your car, sometimes one will be standing outside your car in the body shop and just talk while you customize the vehicle. Once you leave Trans Fender, he just vanishes, not in your car either. He's just gone.

Quantom X

Other mistake: Girlfriend Helena: At 50% progress, as with all the girlfriends, you the game tells you you get the keys to Helena's vehicle to use. However, Helena's Bandit is unlocked from date one.

Bug: PS3 Remastered edition: On the mission "Wrong Side Of The Tracks", if you fail and select to retry the mission and skip the first cutscene, CJ will ask Smoke where to go. However Smoke won't reply until at the destination, and some of the buildings will be blurred when driving by.
