Oversights[]

Quick Reload Bug[]

On both the PS2 and PC versions (and possibly the Xbox), a bug exists where the player can quickly fire slow weapons, such as the shotgun, without waiting to reload. On the PC, you must change the controls to Classic mode.

  • Target a person with the R1 or equivalent button, shoot and quickly release R1. Continue this and you can fire the powerful shotgun just as fast as the pistol. If any cars are in the way of your target they will blow up very quickly, so be careful. This is very useful for taking out gang members and law enforcement officers.
