This move is unlocked in career mode and is only available for SUVs, trucks, and luxury sedans. The Agro meter is charged by hitting traffic and sidewalk clutter. When fully charged, Agro can be activated (or used at a later time) by clicking Left Analog-stick. Agro allows you to plow through the competition, swatting aside any car that gets in your way.Roar special move
This move is unlocked in career mode, and is available to muscle cars and choppers. The Roar meter is charged through successful drifting. When the special move meter is fully charged, Roar can be activated immediately or saved for later use. When activated by clicking Left Analog-stick, Roar sends out an engine rev so loud that traffic will do anything it can to get out of the way.Zone special move
This move is unlocked in career mode and available to import and exotic cars, as well as sportbikes. The Zone meter is charged by driving cleanly and avoiding collisions. Collisions will prevent the meter from charging. It is activated by clicking Left Analog-stick. Zone simulates the adrenaline rush of racing at insane speeds by slowing down the world around you to a crawl, allowing you to squeeze around tight turns and get through narrow spaces with ease.Easy cheats
To use cheats easier, enter the code text, but do not accept it. Select the "Hotkey" button and go to "Set". Then, select one of those phrases. Your code should now be accessible through hotkeys. This is especially useful with the code to add $1 to your career total.Easy money
In a tournament race, do not finish the last race in first place, but in second or third place. Note: Second place is worth more money. Do this as many times as desired for quick money.
In the middle of career mode, buy any car (for example, a '64 Impala). Fix it up nicely with level 2 performance parts, etc., which is worth $43,500. Make a duplicate of the car in the "Manage Vehicle" menu. Make at least five duplicates, but make sure to change some of the letters or numbers of each duplicate. When all of the duplicates are made, choose the duplicates and select "Sell The Vehicle". After selling these versions, you will have easy money in career mode.Easy boost
Get on an opponent's tail until the meter fills up on the right side of the screen then press Nitrous. Additionally, when someone peels out in front of you on a straight road, use your nitrous when he is done and get behind him. Your turbo boost will rise. Then, tap Nitrous again and you will get an ultra boost. This works best with cars that have "Roar".Burnout boost
Hold the Hand Brake and Gas when getting ready for a race. After the screen focuses on your car, release Hand Brake. If done correctly, when it is time to go the meter on the right will fill up and you will get a slight boost.Faster street bike acceleration
With any street motorcycle, use weight control and hold back to wheelie. You will accelerate much faster, but will only be maxed at about 175 mph. Once you go down you will go slower, and then reach 200+ mph.Slipstream turbo
When drafting someone (sharing the air from the car in front), you will see a meter on the right-hand side of the screen fill up. When it is red and starts beeping, press Nitrous and you will get a sudden boost, allowing you to leave your competition in the dust.Exotic cars
After you unlock Class A cars, you may notice that the really fast cars are $250,000 each. In order to get that money, sell all of your other cars. The Cadillac Escalade EXT is worth over $50,000.Go under cars
This trick only works with exotic cars that are set low to the ground. When in the air coming off a jump, press B + Analog-stick Up to angle the car downwards. If you hit a car, you will go under it without losing any speed. This is very useful in races.Weave through traffic
When racing, turn left or right and press B. Your car will go on its side and can weave through traffic.Drive on two wheels
Press L and the D-pad Left or Right. Your car will pop up on the left or right side, and you can drive on two wheels.Frontflip
Get a tuner car with the Zone special move, then find a big jump (for example, the roller coaster jumps in San Diego). Get to at least 150 mph and just before reaching the end of the jump, activate the Zone. Once in the air, hold L + Analog-stick Up. If done correctly, you will perform a frontflip.Weight transfer and air tricks
When flying through the air press, hold B and tilt the Analog-stick in whatever direction that applies to the situation. For example, if you are going to land on the rear, tilt the Analog-stick Forward to level out. Some cars have the ability to do spins, flips, and spinning flips. Note: Bikes and trucks cannot do the aerial stunts. Tuners are recommended for these stunts, though weight transfer works for all vehicles.Wheelies, endos, drive on two wheels, etc.
When on a bike, hold B and press the Analog-stick Down to make the bike do a wheelie, while pressing the Analog-stick Forward will make it do an endo (stoppie). Tilting the Analog-stick Left or Right will decrease its turning radius. In cars or trucks you will drive on two wheels. Note: Wheelies and endos will not work on choppers as well as on the sport bikes.Tuning your car, truck, or bike
While in cruise mode, press Start to pause the game. Then, go to "Options", then to "Tune Your Vehicle". There are three settings, "Drift Factor", "Traction", and "Friction Bias". For all the drifters out there, set the "Drift" bar all the way to the right, "Traction" to the left, and leave "Friction Bias" alone and it will slide like it is on ice. Also, turning and nailing the gas from a complete stop will make it do drifting donuts requiring no turning after about three times around.Using hydraulics
Press Down to get into the hydraulics setup. You can then press Left, Right, White, and Black to use your switches:
Bouncing: Keep tapping D-pad Down.
Driving on three wheel or other motions: Get your car onto the wheels you want and use the Right Analog-stick to drive backward and forward. Be careful; if your are in three wheel motion decide to lift up the front right wheel from the ground while driving, your car will veer to the right (realistically).
- 3 Wheel: Press White + R, or Black + L. To drive, press A and X for brake/reverse.
- Side to Side: To raise the left side press L + White. To raising the right side press R + Black.
- Pancake (hop in place): Press White + Black and L + R to hop.
- East Coast (rear up): Press White + Black.
- West Coast (front up): Press L + R.
To preview your car, enter the pause menu and move the Right Analog-stick around to circle your car. Use R and L to zoom. This also works in the garage; you do not need to enter the pause menu in the garage.Pedestrians look at your car
Drive up to a pedestrian (be careful not to run them over) and wait a little while. They will start to admire your car. Some will even go down on their knees to look at your rims. Others will walk around the whole car to look at the entire thing.Big explosion
Find a gas station and drive into one of the pumps. There should be a huge explosion and you car will be reset in perfect condition.Baseball stadium in San Diego
To get to the baseball stadium, get your map fixed then go all the way down to the bottom of it. While looking at your map, press Up and look to the right on the map. Follow the road that the strange shape is on to reach the stadium.Mid-air tire marks
Go to the boardwalk in San Diego while riding on two wheels in a car. Make sure that the fence towards the water/beach is facing the same direction that the tires that are up. Drive straight into the fence with your car. As soon as you hit the fence, turn left if the right side of your car is up or vice versa. You should see your tire marks in mid-air directly above the fence. Note: You must watch for the tire marks carefully because they disappear fast.Face in the window
Get an Eclipse and wreck it up to the point where all the windows are busted out. Pause the game and rotate the camera to the driver's side window. You will notice that there is a very visible face in the broken part of the window.Drive through garage
Start an Xbox Live game. Choose San Diego and get out a sport bike. When you spawn at the beginning, go to the garage. Try to go in through the corners. If done correctly, you should be inside the garage. It is not big, and if you go too far inside you will fall and respawn at the beginning.Rockstar Games logos
There are twelve Rockstar Games logos hidden throughout each level in the game. Some locations of the logos are as follows:
Atlanta: When you get out of the garage immediately turn to the right. You will see a glass. Crash through to find the logo.
Atlanta: While looking at the shipping station, turn left and keep going until you find a park-like area. There will be a ramp at a corner of it. Hit the ramp at full speed, and after you land on the building, continue forward and jump over to the next building. You should see an open area to the left. The logo should be located there.
Atlanta: Drive to the bottom of the map. Look for a building with a huge globe. There is a logo that reads "Nitro Cola". A logo is located directly under that.
Atlanta: Drive to the graveyard in the south of the map (near the highway). There is a logo at the east part of the building there.
Atlanta: Follow the building where you garage is located. Drive through the skeleton's mouth and you will find a logo.
Atlanta: Follow the highway until you reach a place with some construction work. Drive off the highway (to your right side if driving north), and look for a tank station. Follow the building around and you will se a ramp/road going up. Get some speed, fly over, and you will land on the roof of building. The logo should be in front of you.
Atlanta: Follow the highway until you se a building with a yellow sign on top that reads "DJ Smalls". Across the road is a small parking area where you can see a sign on another building that reads "Spike". Left of that building is a basketball court and a logo.
Atlanta: On the freeway at the top right-hand side of the map, there is an overpass. There is a logo under the overpass on the right-hand side, if you are traveling north.
Detroit: Look for Comerica Park. Near there is a building with some glass that you can drive through. Inside you will find a Rockstar logo.
Detroit: Look for a building with the Detriot Atrium. Drive through the glass to find another Rockstar logo.
Detroit: Look for the big pentagon-shaped place on the map (at the center). Look to the south of that. There will be a small open area. Look to the left of that to find the big building labled "Expo". Go inside the glass to find a Rockstar logo.
Detroit: There is a Rockstar logo near the near the lower left part of the map. Look for a building with some graffiti with a pink bear and the name Kool Kid Snirk. There is a building to the right of it. The logo is inside. Enter the building and turn to see it.
Detroit: Near the lower part of the map, look for some subway tracks that are overhead. Then, look for a ramp that leads up to the subway platform. Drive on the track and you should see a Rockstar logo near a building with a red Maxim billboard sign on it.
San Diego: Find the aircraft carrier and locate the ramp to jump onto the flight deck. One logo can be found here, on the ramp.
San Diego: Drive to the beach at the top left of the map. Follow the beach until you see a small tunnel. There is a logo in there.
San Diego: There is a logo behind the baseball stadium. Follow the highway to the back of the stadium.. You will then se a small ramp. Drive up to find the logo.
San Diego: There is also a logo at the top deck of the aircraft carrier.
San Diego: At the lower left of the map (near the aircraft carrier), follow the coastline. There is no road near by. Follow the large building, and you will find a little road that leads up to a roof. Turn left and you will see the logo.
San Diego: Almost at the lower right corner at the map, there is a huge parking garage. When you are on the streets, drive to the bottom left corner of the building. Drive up the ramp, turn left, and drive through the windows to find another logo.
San Diego: To the far left of the map at the rollercoaster, drive up the ramp that is located at the north of the rollercoaster. Ride to find the logo.
