Los Santos' own Evil Knievel - A guide to Grand Theft Auto 5's stunt jumps
It's been a week since Grand Theft Auto V arrived, and by now, most of you have discovered just how massive the game is. Maybe you've kept yourself busy with the game's campaign, or maybe you've gone off on a tangent to explore some of what Los Santos has to offer.
If so, then by now you've no doubt discovered the wide array of hidden things to find just like the last few GTA games, be they easter eggs, space ship parts, stunt jumps, or a number of other things not pointed out on the map, like the scraps you'll need to solve the mystery of the murder of Leonora Johnson. Whatever the case, there's a variety of things to keep yourself busy with GTA V, some harder to find than others in the widest GTA world yet.
As such, below, you'll find a guide for one of the game's harder to find things - all of the stunt jumps.
There's a total of 50 in all. Unfortunately, there's no cash for finding and completing all the jumps, save for a trophy / achievement, but it's one step you'll need on the road to getting 100% for you hardcore completionists.
The first thing you'll want to do is make sure you're playing as Franklin. His special ability to slow down time while driving and execute hairpin turns will come in extremely handy. Next, get yourself a fast vehicle. You're going to need all the speed you can to make some of these jumps, so something like a garbage truck just won't cut it. The best vehicle for this is the Pegassi Bati 801. Instead of scouring the streets for one, the best way to get yourself this speedy superbike is from Southernsanandreassuperautos.com for $10,000. If you're short on cash, try your hand at the stock market with our swindler's guide to GTA V economics here, and remember the first rule of Economics 101: Buy low, sell high.
Some jumps can be a bit more fickle than others, as you have to hit a certain landing point on each in order to be the jump to be considered completed, so you may have to adjust your speed for each one. In order to save yourself a few minutes backtracking if you fail a jump, the best thing to do is utilize the quick save method on your phone before trying each jump. If you miss, just re-load, and you'll find yourself right back on your bike, ready to try again.
Now, instead of trying to describe exactly where you can find these jumps, we're going to go modern with things. YouTuber PowerPyx has put together a video guide on all the jumps, complete with map locations, the best starting spots, and instructions for each jump.
