A wanted level is a visual representation of the police attention towards the player. The more crimes the player commit in a row, the more police and other forms of law enforcement chase him.

Chaos Level

The severity of each possible crime is measured in 'chaos points', which is added to the player's current chaos level, when the player commit a crime. Commiting crimes and gaining chaos points may result in one or more wanted level stars. Here's the table of correlation between the chaos level and wanted levels.

Chaos points
Game \ Wanted Level 1 2 3 4 5 6
GTA III 40 200 400 800 1600 3200
Vice City 50 180 550 1200 2400 4800
San Andreas 50 180 550 1200 2400 4600

The value of the player's chaos level is decreased by one per second if the wanted level is 0 or 1, and there is no police near the player in radius of 18 units. In San Andreas if the player is within the Bone County weather region, the chaos is decreased by two points per second.

Chaos Points

When the player commits a crime, his chaos level is increased by the number of points as described below. This number is multiplied by the wanted multiplier, which is equal to 1.0 by default. Setting it to another value will result in faster or slower attaining of the wanted stars. Committing a crime within 14 units of a cop doubles the base chaos points received.
