'''Unique Stunt Jumps''' (named ''Unique Jumps'' in the [[GTA III Era]]; later renamed ''Stunt Jumps'' in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]]) are a feature in every [[Grand Theft Auto]] game since [[Grand Theft Auto III]] (with the exception of [[Grand Theft Auto Advance]]). A Stunt Jump usually involves using a vehicle or motorcycle to jump of a ramp of some sort (sometimes a actual ramp, or something similiar to a ramp like a slanted roof or staircase), then to catch a few seconds of airtime, then land on the ground without dying. The game tracks these for your stats, and completing all is usually required for 100% completion. Each unique jump has pre-defined takeoff and landing areas; miss either, and the jump is incomplete. If your vehicle hits the takeoff area in more-or-less the right direction, the game switches to a slow-motion cutscene panoramic view as your vehicle launches from the takeoff area (which is the main way one can tell a unique stunt jump from a nondescript ramp jump, of which there are many). Upon landing, indication of success is given, while an unsuccessful jump will receive no message. Some jumps require high speed, thus are only feasible on a fast motorbike such as a [[PCJ-600]] or [[NRG-500]], and sometimes also require the character to lean forward on the bike for increased speed. In other jumps, too much speed may lead you to overshoot the landing area. In the GTA III Era, there are also [[Stunting|Insane Stunt Jumps]], which aren't required for [[100%]], don't have to done at a set location and pay different amounts depending on the ''difficulty'' of the stunt. In GTA San Andreas it's not uncommon to be rewarded both a Unique Stunt Jump ''and'' an Insane Stunt Jump bonus on the same jump, or to at least receive the Insane Stunt Jump bonus as a booby prize if the main jump fails, though unlike insane stunt jumps, unique stunt jump awards in GTA San Andreas are presented only on first successful completion of the jump.
