Post news RSS GTA III's Best Easter Eggs

en years later, we look at some of Liberty City's best kept secrets

Posted by on

Grand Theft Auto III is 10 years old, and while the mere mention of the game brings back all sorts of warm and fuzzy memories, it also brings up a lot laughs. Believe it or not, Rockstar hid a bunch of goodies in its open world game, and finding them meant you were in on the joke. Here are some of our favorite GTA III Easter Eggs.

The Pen 15 Club

If you bum around Liberty City's university, you'll eventually see a pedestrian carrying a pad of paper. Kill him, and you'll get a look at just what he was studying in school that day.

Shoot for the Moon

When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, you need to shoot it with a sniper rifle. Do that in GTA III, and you get quite the surprise.

Sign of the Times

Exploring Liberty City is what GTA III was all about, but there were some places you were never supposed to want to go. If you did get off the beaten path, Rockstar let you know.

Vice City Here We Come

Perhaps the most blatant Easter Egg was a sign in Liberty City advertising Miami. The next game in the series would be GTA: Vice City, a carbon copy of Florida's Big M.


If you blew out the pane glass at Tw@ Cafe, you could find a rare indoor environment to use for a killing spree in GTA III. However, if you looked at two specific computer monitors, you also got a reference to the top-down GTAs that came before.

Undead Nightmare

The dead walk (and sing) in GTA III... at least according to the tabloids.
