Escaping car pursuits
When you are supposed to flee from other cars shooting at you, look for big
open spaces like
the Staples Center parking lot and drive through them. The people chasing
you will stay on
the road and go all the way around, giving you a good chance to
To escape easily while in pursuit, drive to the nearest highway. Try to get
a good lead from
the enemies before you do this. Drive up the branch of the highway, and
keep straight. Do not
leave the highway. Enemies are not able to get on the highway when you do
this. They stick to
the main road. Keep straight and eventually you will gain your points and
end the mission.
When trying to escape from an enemy in a Rush mission, take out the cars
that are chasing
you and they will not follow. This takes about thirty seconds.
To escape a chase, find a parking lot or a park and go into the middle of
it. Once there,
enable the “bullet time” mode and shoot out the tires of your
opponents car. For a quick
escape, wait until they turn around and shoot their licensee plate to blow
When you start, drive normally until the car chasing you is almost bumper
to bumper but next
to you. Then, stop as soon as it seems it is past your back wheels. Go into
view in the car. Aim for the tires and blow them out. When your ”bullet
time” runs out,
start aiming at the back of the car or shoot the engine. When the car seems
fire, make your getaway.
On a mission where you have to get away from a certain person, turn your
car around and
start shooting at the person who is chasing you. If you blow them up, they
Note: Use precision aim to shoot out their tires. Note: This will not work
for all getaway
Blow up cars easily:
Drive up behind a car and go into “bullet time”. Then, aim at the
license plate and fire.
Most of the time it will take a single shot. For cargo trucks, aim under
the passenger side
and slightly to the back and fire. This makes stopping street racers and
other people easy.
To explode a car in one hit, go into aim mode and wait until your aiming
Then, shoot when it turns red. If it does not turn red, then just shoot
around the license
plate until the car explodes.
Stop street racers While following a speeding car or truck, aim directly
beneath the back
bumper so that your bullet hits the bottom of the car. Do this repeatedly
and the car will
Note: Do not do this if you are trying to get a Good Cop rating.
When your enemy is escaping by stealing a getaway car, kick them when they
are pulling out
the victim to stop them.
Getting enemies to surrender:
When you are doing a crime patrol involving people with guns, fire a
warning shot and slowly
walk up to them. If they are still holding their gun, either walk up to
them and wait until
they shoot you, or do a neutralized shot.
Drive around impound lot:
In the impound lot where you can choose from the four cars you unlock, honk
the horn a few
times, then go in reverse before you hit the gas and you can around the
When you are on a mission where you need to drive on the world map, do not
press any buttons.
Nick will start driving like the other cars until you take over.
Bashing through walls:
There is a way to bash through the walls that crumble when you attack them.
Simply drive at
them at a very high speed so that your car drives straight through before
the crumbling of
the wall is over. This is useful when being chased by gangsters, cops,
etc., as they cannot
Flip a car by a bridge and it will fly into the air and give you a score
for highest air, etc.
Slide across hoods:
To do this, you must be running at a medium speed (if running at full
speed, nick will jump
over the car). Run until your are right next to the car then press [Jump].
Nick will slide
across the hood. This works on any vehicle.
Spotting illegal drugs:
To avoid wasting time frisking innocents, look for people that walk
differently. Also, when
Nick says “hmm”, check that person for weapons or drugs.
When an opponent is dazed, you can hit them hard into the wall with a
finisher to do even more
Deadly knife throw:
In some situations when a enemy drops a knife, you can pick it and throw
it. If thrown correctly,
it will impale their forehead, killing them.
Learn where the impound garages are located. When you get low on health,
just visit the
garage. You will not only get a fresh car, your health will be full
Easy knock out:
When chasing an opponent, shoot them with a weak gun a few times until they
are almost dead.
Put away your guns and fight when you catch up to them. This makes it
easier to defeat an
Increasing Cop rank:
Go around checking everyone for drugs and weapons to get +1 Good Cop.

Defeating General Kim
To defeat General Kim on the building rooftop, start the fight by running
up to him.
Either clothesline or slide kick him. He may block it, but there may a
chance to hit
him. After this, start kicking or punching him. He will block most of your

Defeating ancient Wu’s concubine:
The easiest way to defeat ancient Wu’s concubine is to run to the ropes and
running attack. The rope will break. Go back and fight the concubine. Force
fight where you broke the ropes and you can hit them off.
Defeating Wu’s dragon:
When the dragon is about to use his fire attack, use you manual aim to
shoot it in the

Vigilante 8 reference:
During one of the street crimes, the woman in the radio says that a stunt
