Random Pickable Objects are special objects featured in Grand Theft Auto IV, The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony.


Grand Theft Auto IV

The Random Pickable Objects are different objects that can be picked up by the player and thrown. They are first introduced in the mission Bull in a China Shop and are generally the same size as the character's hand.

The following is a list of objects that can be picked up and used as thrown items:


Grand Theft Auto IV

Although objects can be vastly different from others, their performance is about the same when thrown at an NPC. The object deals little damage and can sometimes knock pedestrians, but can be picked up again as long as the object is still able to be picked up.

Sometimes, throwing an object into gang members or police officers will likely react to the situation (fighting back or causing a wanted level, respectively).
