All Buildings and Terrain Disappear- Find Packages with ease!
Take a bike (PCJ works well) and ride it as fast as you can into the Pole Position Strip Club entrance way, but before you get there hop off the bike and let it slide all the way to the end. Then enter the Pole Position and you should be standing on or next to your bike. If it is far enough down the hall you can get on it without having to exit the building. Once on the bike and having exited the building you can go anywhere in the game without the distracting buildings and terrain showing up; they are all invisible.

Buy Assets for Free (PC-only)
For this glitch, you'll need to have the money needed to buy an asset. Go to the asset and to the purchase icon in front of it. Begin a replay and, when it ends, hit Tab and the replay button at the exact same time. Once the replay ends, you should have bought the asset, but without spending any money on it.
Get Hookers in the Australian Version
Australian Hookers will simply not get in your car, however if you drive next to a hooker and use the ''pedestrians get in car'' cheat 'HOPINGIRL' the hooker /will/ get into the car, and when you go to a secluded place the car starts rocking and increases your health to up to 25 HP more.

Get to Second Island Early (PC-only)
When you first can, grab the PCJ-600 motorbike. Find the barricades blocking you from the next island. With these located, go a fair bit away down the street so that you have ample room to reach maximum speed. Accelerate towards the barricade and, assuming you've hit the maximum speed, you'll just go straight through the barricades instead of crashing into them.
Get to Starfish Island Early (PC-only)
When attempting to get to Starfish Island too early, there are barricades blocking you, and the footpaths are blocked by a black grate. You can take a motorbike and attempt to slowly ride up the grates. At some point, you'll be launched at a high velocity through the gate, to the other side, albeit slightly hurt and without your motorbike.
Ghost World Glitch
For this, you'll need a motorbike and a building you can enter, such as the Pole Position club. Drive the motorbike towards the club entrance (in this case) and dismount before actually entering, letting the bike drive and crash inside. Enter the building and then get on the bike. You can then drive outside. You'll be in what is known as the "Ghost World", where most of the game's architectural graphics - like buildings, roads, etc. - are not seen, although you can still run into them and otherwise be blocked by them. Using this glitch, you can use the minimap to navigate. The main purpose is to be able to see otherwise obscured pick-ups and weapons and other icons of interest you'd otherwise not see.
Prevent Traffic from Spawning
When you play the game and get on a vehicle, if you look backwards when driving, no traffic will spawn in front of you. If you know the game's geography well, you can easily speed along to your destination without threat of being knocked off your vehicle.
Put two Vehicles in Your Garage
One of the Two vehicles MUST be a Motorcycle. Get a Motorcycle and park it half way into the entrance (preferably of to the side). Get another Motorcycle or a car nearby and drive it into the garage. Hop on the Motorcycle thats parked halfway and drive that in too.
Now you have 2 Vehicles in your garage!

When you are using a weapon and finish off a clip, quickly scroll the mouse wheel up, then quickly back down to the weapon you were using. The weapon should already be reloaded. This makes it easier when in a gang battle.

Replay Glitches (PC-only)
When you play the game, enter a mission and go to a point where a Rampage icon is meant to spawn (but isn't there, because you're in a mission). Make a quick replay at that spot and finish the mission as normal. At later times, you can use this replay to trigger the Rampage from a distance. In doing so, the game is tricked into thinking you're not on a mission, even if you are. This will allow you to take the same mission at multiple simultaneous times or multiple different missions all together. If you take the same mission several times, the spawns for cars and stuff used in that mission will essentially respawn instantly on each other; for example, in "Jury Fury", the cars of your victims stack on each other and quick explode from massive damage. Another example is the final Print Works mission; by completing it several times at the same time, you can trick the game into thinking you've obtained that many assets, triggering the game to allow the final bits of the game early. You can also take multiple missions to help speed the game along, and, mostly notably, dupe completion percentage for obtaining 100%. (For example: you could use this glitch to trigger the same mission an obscene number of times, complete it once - thus completing them all - and see a huge jump in your completion percentage.)

A real virtual Easter Egg
Aim for the Helipad on top of the Vice City-News Station (on the second Island). Sometimes there is the VCN Mavrick on the Helipad. The building on the right has a hallow wall so you can go through it. The hallow part is a unrealistic looking window on the left of it. Run from one side of the heliport to the other and then jump into the hallow window. There you will see the Easter Egg with a sign on it that says Happy Easter.

Easily Earn Massive Amounts of Money
For this, you'll need to access the Cone Crazy mission, preferably having never done it before. It can be accessed at the top of the car park near the Ocean View Hotel, by entering the Stallion. Normally, this mission pays out $200, but you can immediately retry the mission (just park the Stallion where you found it, exit, and re-enter it). It's a timed mission, and if you complete it faster than before, you get double that amount of money ($400). This can repeat further, gaining you sums of $800, $1600, $3200, and so on.
This mission is actually quite easy, and gives you a lot of extra time, making all these factors easy to exploit. When you play the mission, go through the last checkpoint as late as possible, noting how long it took you. Retry the mission again, timing yourself to complete it as late as possible again, but just barely better than your previous time (thus letting you win).
Keep replaying it as desired, each time deliberately beating your previous time by just a bit (a second or two for instance). While the rewards start small, owing to the doubling of the prize they accumulate fast (for instance, the 10th win gets you over $100,000, and the 14th over $1,600,000). You can do this a total of 23 times (a prize of over $800,000,000 and total earns over $1,600,000,000) before the rewards become glitchy and actually take money from you, but that's not a concern since this will definitely max out your money count.
You can also gently use your car's wheels to move the cones just after triggering the mission to make completing it faster. Just park against the cone and gently nudge it: don't break it. This will likely be needed after the 16th completion (which gets you $6,553,600), but only if you really want to do the trick further. It'd only be necessary on the PC version, owing to how the checkpoints give you less time on that than the console versions.
