How to Pick Up Girls in "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas"

by Stephen Lilley ; Updated September 22, 2017

Just as you could with previous entries in the "Grand Theft Auto" video game saga, "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas" allows you to "pick up girls" at various points during the game. These girls are typically prostitutes and are used to regain health that you have lost during the course of the game. Picking up girls in "San Andreas" requires a very specific action on the part of the game player.

Get into a car. You can pick up girls in "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas" only if you are driving in a car. To do this, go near a car and press the triangle button on your PS2 controller.

Drive around and find a "lady of the night" you can pick up. Use the "X" button to accelerate and the left directional stick to control your vehicle. Prostitutes are dressed much more skimpily than other pedestrians and can be typically found standing in one place on street corners, particularly at night.

Honk your car's horn by pressing in on the left directional stick. This will cause the prostitute to walk over to your car and get in.
