'Grand Theft Auto IV' Hints, Tips, and Easter Eggs

You can use other tips and tricks throughout "Grand Theft Auto IV" as well, plus find some Easter eggs along the way:

  • Easy Money: Find an ATM, cause a traffic jam, and block the roads so that an ambulance can't get through. Let a person or two get money from the ATM and then kill them. Pick up the money, walk away, go back, and the money will be there. You can repeat this action.
