“Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas” ("GTA: San Andreas") is a role-playing action adventure game for the PlayStation 2 that was released in 2004. The game was developed by Rockstar North and is the eighth overall title in the “Grand Theft Auto” franchise. Players control Carl Johnson (CJ) as he attempts to save his neighborhood from an influx of drugs and crime. “San Andreas” features a variety of hidden weapons and vehicles including the Minigun and the Jetpack which is required to find the Minigun.

Turn on your PlayStation 2 and insert “GTA: San Andreas” disc.

Load your game and travel to your airstrip in Verdant Meadows, Las Venturas (the northern-most part of the map) to use your Jetpack. A prerequisite to having the Jetpack is that you must have completed the mission “Green Goo.”

Use your Jetpack to fly to San Fierro, the left-most island. Look for Kincaid Bridge which is a red rail bridge spanning Easter Bay (consult your Map in the Pause Menu to find its location). Fly along the bridge until you see a concrete archway on the San Fierro side of the bridge. Atop this archway is the Minigun.

Land on the archway and walk into the Minigun to equip it.
