Start Off In GTA San Andreas (Xbox)

Start Off In GTA San Andreas (Xbox)

Some may find it difficult to start off the game in San Andreas, after Officer Tenpenny drops you off in Ballas territory. The beginning can feel cold and weird, if you never played this before. You can start off well in GTA San Andreas in Xbox. Follow the simple steps below

Start in an alleyway, and you will see a bike with a Blue Diamond over it. This indicates that you need to get on the bike to go any further. Proceed by walking up to it and press Y.

Watch for a message. After you hopped on the bike you will see a message that says "Hold down R to pedal". This is how to pedal on your bike. As soon as you pedal your radar on the bottom left side of the screen will flash. And you will notice the letters "CJ" on the radar edge. When It is on the edge, that means it is beyond radar range to physically see it. So you should pedal towards it.

Wait for another message to pop up once you get closer to the "CJ" icon. It will say "Press L to brake, or reverse once the bike is stopped. Test the brake to make sure it works (even though it will). Just advance closer to the "CJ" icon to continue.

Look for a sign saying "Press up or down to shift your weight on the bike". This is the fun part because you can do wheelies and stoppies. You can make your trip a little more crafty as you near the destination.

Check to see if you are now standing in front of your house, the one with the red marker, you can complete the beginning by simply walking in the red marker, or you can bike around a little more for the sake of fun.


  • Put the bike in the garage by simply riding up to it, in a second the door should open. Then ride your bike into it, and dismount it. Walk out and let the door close, now it will be there if you need it, and it wont get stolen!
  • You will see a group of 3-4 people in purple and white standing on the bridge as you ride along to get to the "CJ" icon. Avoid them! They can get violent toward you since they are a part of a different gang. Just ride along and don't go near them.
  • Don't mess with the purple and white guys until you have weapons after this mission!
  • Try not to run into buildings going fast on a bike, this can hurt you and damage your health bar.
  • Don't play this without a parents A.O.K If you are under 18 years of age.
  • Don't try to steal this game if you are under the age of buying it. Many parents don't bail or visit people in jail.
