Gangstar Vegas Tips & Cheats: 5 Killer Hints You Need to Know

Gangstar Vegas is one of Gameloft’s open-world sandbox games set in a similar vein to Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto series for PCs and consoles. Of course, this is a mobile game for Android and iOS devices, and in this game, you play the role of an MMA fighter who will eventually build up a squad of gangsters and (hopefully) win Mafia wars. There are 80 missions to go through in here, as well as a huge city that Gameloft claims is “nine times the size of the previous Gangstar game.” You can take part in challenges that include car, boat, and plane races, as well as MMA fights – that’s your character’s original job, after all! Then there are the weapons and vehicles, and the game’s star-studded soundtrack to consider as well.

Climbing up the top of the crime ladder in Vegas can be tough, but if you’ve just started this climb, our compilation of Gangstar Vegas tips, tricks and cheats could hopefully make it easier.

1. How To Complete All Missions Successfully

This may sound like a pretty lofty cheat, but it is possible in Gangstar Vegas. And it’s even easier than it was in Gangstar Rio; back then, you could access the shop in all missions, thus allowing you to buy health as needed. In here, you can go to the shop via the Map screen, and buy all the med-kits, weapons, ammo, and armor you need. That’s more items than before, and since med-kits in particular are hard to find throughout the course of the actual game, Gameloft has made it easier for players to complete all their missions with little effort.

2. Access Missions On The Map Screen

Likewise, Gameloft is also allowing players in Gangstar Vegas to instantly head to mission locations instead of driving to them. All you need to do here is to go to the Map screen, tap on the mission icon, then hit Begin to get things started. This saves you the effort of driving around Las Vegas to go wherever you have to be in order to start a mission.

3. Run And Shoot

It’s that old run and shoot mechanic again, though with that being said, there may be times when you’ll need to take cover. In most cases, you can ace missions by doing the run and shoot – fire at an enemy, then run before their bullets hit you. As you can easily buy med-kits, armor, and other stuff like we told you above, getting back up to speed should be a breeze. Don’t bother using the cover system, which is, quite honestly, a bit hard to use and not worth the effort to use regularly.

4. Buy Higher-End Weapons

Don’t settle for a puny little pistol for the long run; if you can afford an assault rifle, then buy it and make that your main weapon. Sure, handguns may be fine in a pinch, but you wouldn’t, and shouldn’t use them for an extended period of time. If you’ve got something better, then go nuts with it and use it first and foremost.

5. Upgrade The Skills That You Need

Vehicle skills, meaning the ones that allow your ride to go faster, are essentially useless in this game. The skills you want to upgrade are health, since you’ll need a lot of it, as well as your damage and rate of fire for the weapons.

In one mission I always die just because I don't have a vest and as soon as I have the tracking device a tank comes and shoots me away instantly. I can't get any further and I don't see how to spend money because it's a stupid game because apparently you only have money comes further. Just shit!!! Besides, if I dodge the tank, I can't find a way out. Which just makes this the stupidest mission.
