Weapon pickup with a red halo in GTA III

A pickup is a spinning object (with a glowing halo in GTA III and Vice City) that can disappear when the player goes through it or interacts with it. If the model is a usable weapon, the player can "pick" it up and use it. Some pickups are created as collectibles. They are usually difficult to find but collecting them is required for a 100% completion of the game. Mines are classified as a type of pickup though their usage is limited to GTA III. Nearly all pickups are saved in block 7 of the save file in GTA III, block 8 in Vice City, and block 6 in San Andreas. Other than script-based creations listed below, the only other time a pickup is created in the game is when a character dies and drops money or weapons.

Pac-Man pickups

Platinum pickups in GTA III

Pac-Man pickups are a collection of pickups unique to GTA III. The entire collection is interestingly named "Pac Man" and the pickups "Power Pills," references to the Pac-Man arcade game. They can only be collected while the player is in a vehicle and have a spinning halo that is unique from all other pickups in the game. There are two types of pickups: "race" used for donkey magazines during "Big'N'Veiny", and "scramble" used for platinums during "Bullion Run". These pickups cannot be saved into the save file.
