Grand Theft Auto IV

Grand Theft Auto IV Achievements

Walk Free

Lose a 4 star wanted rating by outrunning the cops.  

Get yourself a two star wanted level. Then summon a cab by calling your cousin Roman, provided you have unlocked "Driving Mr. Bellic," and choose a destination a far distance from you. While riding, hold and you'll aim your gun out the window. Then cause as much mayhem as possible until you get up a four star wanted level. Then let go of and press and you'll be transported to your destination with no police around, so your level will disappear. This only works in one of your cousin's cabs, as in a standard taxi, the driver will run away if you earn a wanted level. 

**Can be done after completing story mode**

u dont have to out run the cops on foot, some people think that they have to.
enter the police station in Algonquin then run straight out, dont turn or anything, stay on one lane. after u loose the cops in 10 seconds the achievement will
unlock, i got this achvmnt accidentally.

Easiest way to shake off stars is in the subway tunnels in Algonquin. Enter at any of the subway stations scattered about, or were the El goes underground near the Internet cafe. The cops won't follow you (and if they do, they're easy to take out, and won't search the tunnels, so it's just a matter of going deep enough to get out of their search radius. Get by the stations though as fast as possible if need be, so as not to be seen by security there.

I assume you can't get this if you try going into the Pay n Spray right?

Drive through the airport and out again... If you're a good driver this is easy.

The part about the normal taxi drivers running away made me laugh because it remnded me of something. I decided I didn't want to drive to Alderney so on the bridge that connects Bohan to Broker I got out of my car and hopped in a taxi, chose my destination and hit X instead of A to skip to my destination. The cab driver slammed into the toll booth and got his own wanted level and the cops shot him dead since he hit a cop. One of the funniest gaming moments of my life.

Same thing as #1. Was looking for the bird in the main tower, hopped in a car and sped off down the tarmac. Achievement popped. Must be glitched.

Easy if you unlocked Roman Ability. Heres what I did. I took a normal taxi to airport then went near the zone you get the 4 stars wanted level and put a waypoint in a safe zone on the map(on an island youve already unlocked as far as possible from the airport).Then,call Roman using his "Car Service" ability. Check on the map where he is(cause if youre unlucky like I was the first time your taxi will spawn in the water). Once you're sure the taxi isnt in the water, run in the 4 stars wanted level zone and come back to the place you called the taxi. He should be arrived. Get in the taxi as passenger and travel to your waypoint. Skip using A. Once you arrived get out of the cab and the achievement is yours.

I also got this achievement accidentally. I went on a rampage (as you do) then decided to try and outrun the cops and I did and the achievement popped up. :)

I just went to the airport and I didn't know this achievement existed and I was driving super fast and escaped them! Very easy!
