It wouldn’t be a Grand Theft Auto game without some crazy cheat codes. As of this writing, Rockstar hasn’t released an official list of those codes yet, but the Internet has already been hard at work trying to figure them out. Reddit user highpixels discovered that cheat codes (in the form of button combinations) from older GTA games still work in GTA V. I can’t vouch for the Xbox 360 codes since I don’t have that version, but all the PlayStation 3 codes worked for me.
Turning these on deactivate Trophies and Achievements, so I recommend creating a separate save file before using them in case something goes wrong. For all 23 codes, check out highpixels’ Reddit post and MrVuule’s comment below it. User Bestakes also created a chart that’s easier on the eyes for the PS3 cheats.
Here are some of my favorites.
