The GTA 3 Definitive Edition is finally out now, after months of anticipation. Fans of the series are reveling in the nostalgia, heading back to Liberty City to experience Claude’s story once more. Many the nuances of the PS2-era original are back, too, including some pretty wacky glitches. If you wish Claude would move just a bit faster, then join us in looking at this GTA 3 Definitive Edition Speed Glitch.
How to Use the Speed Glitch in GTA 3 Definitive Edition
If you’re looking to use the GTA 3 Definitive Edition speed glitch, the good news is that it’s nice and simple. All you have to do is continuously switch weapons while running.
Yes, it’s that easy! Spam the 1 and 2 keys on PC, or R1/RT on PlayStation and Xbox while moving. Keep running while you repeat this process, and Claude will bound around at twice the regular speed. This interesting glitch comes thanks to GTA speed runner English Ben on Twitter, who found out this hilarious little tip.

Of course, this method might not revolutionize your GTA 3 travel plans. Nonetheless, it’s a fun little method that’ll let you explore Liberty City from ground level a little bit faster. In a game as littered with Easter eggs and hidden secrets as GTA 3, this speed glitch will certainly please completionists.
Once you’ve had enough of sprinting at twice the speed, it’s equally easy to stop the speed glitch. All you have to do is go stationery by letting go of the analog stick, or the direction key. From then, you’ll be able to run as normal – which is much more convenient if you’re in the middle of a firefight. It’s just short of super powers, but this GTA 3 speed glitch is a hoot!
