Grand Theft Auto IV

Grand Theft Auto IV Achievements

Rolled Over

Do 5 car rolls in a row from one crash.  

Head to the airport runway in a fast car (Infernus, Super GT, police.... etc). Scattered in the grass by the runway you will see small yellow ramps. Locate one, retreat back aways, approach at top speed, aim for only half your car to actually hit the ramp, and sit back and count the spins.

There is another location that just may work better, but has been unconfirmed, and is just an idea of mine. Looking at the stunt jumps map, go to jump #8. You jump the ramp, and it is a very far ways down. I just hit the corner of it in a Super GT accidentally, and I counted eight barrel rolls before I hit the ground. I can't verify if it works, as I already have the achievement. Any input would be great

There is also a method of stringing together rolls to get the achievement, see video:

**Can be done after completing story mode**

I wouldnt go to the airport. I used the swing set glich, you get atleast 10 rolls if you get it to work properly.

I somehow got this after only 3 rolls, from what it looked like :S

It took me a while but when I finally got it I barely clipped the bump at the runway nd only flipped once.I'm not complaining tho cuz I rolled 6 times before nd didn't get it.

Definitely something odd about this achievement. Rolled a bunch of times without getting it, but then did a half-roll off a jump and got it. Makes zero sense.

When I use the swing glitch I just go through the windscreen but not with a armoured vehicle.

Tuesday, April 12, 2011 @ 11:59:26 PM

Forget these methods. Easiest way to get this is by using swingset. Only instead of backing into middle bar just drive in to swing sideways stopping right infront of swing so it throws vehicle sideways doing barrelrolls which is whats needed for chiev where going in backwords just flips you. Got this in 2 minutes

I couldn't do it at the airport, so I tried to find another way. I found a video on youtube that showed me another way, and it was WAYYYY easier. It requires cheats though, so dont safe after you enter the cheats. Get the annilator helicopter and fly it to the skyscrapers. There is a triangular shaped building that's perfectly flat on top with no edges. Get on top of the building and spawn a wide car, I used the turismo. Drive it to the hypotenuse of the triangle and drive at a 2 degree angle to it and fall off. Make sure to hit the ledges on the way down, because this is what flips the car even faster. It took me about 15 tries until I got it, but I tried the airport over 50 times. Good luck.

Try it at the airport runway, just drive flip and if you fail just try it at the other end of the runway. Btw, the achievement pop is delayed so wait a second after you are sure you did it

This achievmnet is soo hard to do becasue it HAS to be from a crash which means you must go like 400 mph and crash against another car bullshit

Comment #35 by Adar Kane
Sunday, November 20, 2011 @ 06:45:38 PM

The game is stupid and loaded with bugs. I mean, i guess i can say the closest strategy i followed was the stringing method (holding down RT and going for a bunch of smaller flips or rolls), but i concur with the other guy, i think mine popped at 3 too.

Do it at the airport but once hit the yellow rank don't release the right trigger. You can keep going over the yellow ramps and the game will keep counting the rolls towards the achievement.

#22 has it right. His video link is legit. ( )
First try in a cop car. Felt pretty dumb after spending countless months attempting this, only to watch a video and get it the first try.
Stringing is the way to go.

I noticed with these kind of achievments if your looking and trying to do it you most likely not get it only by getting it when you aren't trying it......than again who fuckin knows right?

What am I fuckin Yoda?

Comment #48 by MrGoldenBall
Wednesday, July 18, 2012 @ 05:44:20 AM

Just unlocked this achievement ... at last -_-

For the easiest way to get this achievement read the remainder of this post:

1. Go to the far bottom right hand corner of the map and get a Turismo from the one of the houses.

2. Drive to the airport and go onto the runway. Be quick about it because you will soon find you have a 4 star wanted level.

3. (FOR THE REMAINDER OF THIS GUIDE KEEP YOUR FINGER ON THE RIGHT TRIGGER AT ALL TIMES FOR THIS WORK)Line up your car with the yellow ramps, two wheels on the ramp and you will do a barrell roll. Remember to keep you finger on the right trigger even when you are in mid-air and after you have landed.

4. Normally, one jump will not be enough, this is why you need to keep your finger on the accelerator (right trigger). Carry out jump af

Comment #49 by MrGoldenBall
Wednesday, July 18, 2012 @ 05:45:58 AM

... after jump still holding the right trigger until the achievement unlocks.

5. Holding onto the trigger basically fools the game into thinking you havent finished the crash yet.

Hope this helps, worked first time for me. :)30G should be yours if you follow this guide :D

Just go to the airport runway with a Turismo or a banshee and jump using the ramps with only two wells in. And that's it. it's really fun to see how all the police is chasing you and you're just fooling around with a super speed car

Comment #54 by danallias
Sunday, August 12, 2012 @ 01:04:43 PM this is definitely the best method of earning the achievement. Worked for me on my third attempt!! Plus the guy sounds like McLovin from Superbad!!

Thursday, September 27, 2012 @ 11:40:21 AM

The stringing method does work, but it might take a few tries. I just got it on my fourth attempt with my vehicle in flames after what seemed more like 10 rolls. Much better than going for 5 in one jump.

Comment #57 by abj57
Sunday, January 06, 2013 @ 04:11:11 AM

Most fucking retarded achievement earlier. I tried just holding down the trigger and it didn't work. Tried for like 30 mins or so.... i think there was an update that patched it....

Comment #59 by abj57
Sunday, January 06, 2013 @ 11:45:35 PM

Just tried swingset and skyscraper method and i held the trigger down while flipping and rolling and it still does not work. -_- did without cheats for swingset and airport. Tried with cheats on skycraper. This is freaking lame, they must have patched it or the game is being a douche to me

Comment #60 by Bgrngod
Saturday, January 19, 2013 @ 06:30:51 PM

No dice on skyscraper method. First try using string method. Go to airport and use the yellow things to flip the car and NEVER let go of the gas trigger. Hit the jumps a few times and easy peasy.

It wasn't the airport where I got this... I was I was coming off the highway on Alderney, (One of the off ramps,) at full speed. At the end, there was a ramp where I went off of and flipped 5 times. I was just fooling around when I got it.

the video for the tutorial/guide needs to be switched....the one that is posted doesn't play anymore due to the person closing their account. i'd vote for the one in post #22, it worked like a charm.

Man, I've been trying like a MILLION times to do the stringing method and I'm not getting it. I tried the swingset glitch, but mine isn't glitching. This cheevo is really frustrating me! BTW, don't use the Feltzer... sucks when you hit the grassy areas at the airport!!!

Comment #66 by lawdog1037
Tuesday, June 11, 2013 @ 02:42:47 AM

Got it today, finally! Stringing method finally worked. I finally tried with a Comet. STRINGING METHOD! I tried the cheating on the rooftop several times. Didn't work. But the stringing still works for anyone that is still trying to get this. Kudos to whoever told us about this.

The airport was a pain. Tried a bunch of times. Finally did Swing Set Glitch. Did it after five tries and it was fun.

Comment #68 by PHOPOW
Tuesday, July 02, 2013 @ 03:05:42 PM

Mopping up on old cheevo's. Just got this one this afternoon. EASIEST WAY to do it is go to the airport. Spawn yourself a fast car of your choice using your cell phone cheat. Go up and down the tarmac hitting the little yellow ramp looking things. You may not get ALL 5 rolls in one jump, BUT THAT IS FINE. Some jumps you'll do a couple of rolls. Other jumps more. Other jumps less. You just need to do 5 or more rolls going up and down the tarmac COLLECTIVELY until your car is no longer operational.

I got this at the airport. Went over one of the yellow ramps in the grass and rolled three times. My car then set on fire due to damage. I then (while on fire) hit another ramp, rolled twice and boom achievement popped. Maybe it was a glitch or something but something to try if your not having much luck getting 5 rolls of one ramp.
