Maxing Out CJ’s Stats in GTA: San Andreas Definitive Edition
In the world of Grand Theft Auto, San Andreas made waves upon its release – and now with the definitive edition re-release, it’s time to catch up with Carl “CJ” Johnson and the rest of the Grove Street crew. If you’re new to the game or just need a refresher, this guide will help you max out CJ’s stats, particularly his strength and stamina, as well as improve his hand-to-hand combat moves by unlocking the gym early in the definitive edition of GTA San Andreas.
Unlocking the Gym
Accessing the gym and its benefits in GTA San Andreas Definitive Edition is pretty straightforward. Begin by following the game’s initial linear storyline until you start hanging around with Sweet. From there, keep completing Sweet missions until you finish the “Drive-Thru” mission – the one where you have to complete a burger shot order. Once you complete this mission, CJ will have unlocked the ability to head to the gym.
Maxing Out CJ’s Strength and Stamina
Once you have access to the gym, head there and jump on the weights to start strength training. Make sure to set the difficulty to the hardest level possible and continue to max out the workout for the day. After you tire out, head back to the Johnson residence and save a few times so that 24 hours passes. Then, repeat the process by jumping on the stationary bike until you max out for the day. Pro tip: having an aftermarket controller with a turbo setting or an auto clicker will help you out!
Maxing out your strength and stamina will significantly improve your ability to sprint and increase your available health. After a few rounds of training, CJ will be as fit as he can possibly get in GTA San Andreas Definitive Edition.
Unlocking Hand-to-Hand Combat Techniques
In addition to the physical benefits of working out at the gym, hitting certain fitness milestones will eventually unlock new hand-to-hand combat techniques. You’ll be offered the opportunity to train with the gym instructor, allowing you to access advanced moves to add to your repertoire. Bear in mind that becoming too fit can limit some romance options available to CJ throughout the game, so choose your fitness goals wisely!
In conclusion, unlocking and maxing out the gym in GTA San Andreas Definitive Edition is a relatively easy process that can give you some significant benefits in the game, including increased strength, stamina, and hand-to-hand combat skills. With over 45 hours of gameplay, there’s no shortage of things to do in San Andreas so start pumping iron and watch CJ become a beast!
