Adrenaline Pills are items scattered around Liberty City in Grand Theft Auto III and Liberty City Stories as well as Vice City in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City that when collected by the player give a temporary boost of speed while seeming to slow down time. While the game's speed is slowed down, the player's aiming speed is the same as it would normally be, which is handy when engaged in gun battles such as police, gangs or during rampages. The player can also jump further than normal. Strangely, entering a vehicle resets the speed to normal again. Many players consider the adrenaline pills to be a drug the player takes, which may also explain their absence in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, since the main characters in these games have a dislike towards drugs. However, in GTA San Andreas, an "adrenaline effect" cheat code exists which makes the same impact when entered.
