Forum:Getting the Minigun
Hi Everybody I'm new here (if you can't tell). I was wondering if any of you could help me with a glitch (or what i think is a glitch) in my copy of Grand Theft Auto San Andreas. When I am in San Ferrio the bridge called the kinkard bridge the minigun is on the San Ferrio side and when i use my cheat code to get a hunter and fly above it i use a parachute and when i am falling the game stops me in mid-air like i hit land or something. is it a glitch or is the game programed that way. Any help is welcomed.

- Hi, and welcome to Grand Theft Wiki! Your problem sounds like it has something to do with the cheat. Here's a trick I learned for getting up there without cheating: hijack a train at Cranberry Station, and drive it until the engine is just under the concrete archway where the minigun spawn is. Then, get out the train, run down the grass hill next to where you stopped (down to the street underneath where you just stopped the train), and jack a car with enough power to get back up the hill (tricky, but you can wedge the car back onto the tracks right at the mouth of the tunnel...and make sure not to stray too far or the train will disappear!). Get the car alongside the train you just jacked, and use the car as a step onto the train's engine, then use the engine as a step to get onto the archway...kinda elaborate and time-consuming, but until you get a pilot's license and are able to get into aircraft, it's the best way I've found without using cheats, which tend to screw up gameplay/saving. Hope that helps! EganioTalk 05:28, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

This sounds like that you have not unlocked Las Venturas/The Desert, as there is an invisible barrier around that minigun spawn that doesnt get removed until after "Yay Ka Boom Boom" (where MT rings you to come to his ranch, therefore unlocking the desert). So yes, it is programmed into the game, but it gets removed.
Unless you have already unlocked the desert, in which case I have no idea. --Scunnysmith 16:36, November 14, 2009 (UTC)

Look, that's how i did it. After finishing vertical bird mission, saved the game in verdant meadows, then took the parked jetpack and went to san fierro, waited till 6am cause at night it had a lot of fog in sf, then flew with the jetpack to the bridge, landed where the minigun was and took it (it was the railway bridge i think), then i went to the airport of sf, but i didn't find a good plane (rustler) and took the jetpack again, flew through the badlands to madd doggs crib, there saved the game with the minigun, went out and did home coming mission (very easy if you do it with the minigun). Yesterday i did end of the line this way (killing smoke with minigun, it took me 3 seconds, lol) and passed the game for my 2nd time.
By the way, before the mission yay ka boom boom you can't take the minigun from the top of that bridge. This minigun is unlocked when the desert and LV is unlocked.Dumbnigga94 14:04, February 24, 2010 (UTC)
