How to use GTA 5 cheat codes

While most GTA games simply allow you to type in a cheat code while your character is walking around, GTA 5 has a few different ideas to mix up that formula. Depending on which platform you're playing on, these are your options for inputting cheat codes:

More like this
  • On Xbox, PC or PlayStation, you can simply input the code on your controller at any time while you're wandering around the game world.
  • On PC, you also have the option of pressing one keyboard button (¬ in the UK or ~ in the USA) and then typing in the cheat code on your keyboard.
  • On Xbox, PC or PlayStation, you can also enter cheat codes on the in-game phone! Press up on your D-pad to bring up the phone, then enter the special code!
    • Activate the Black Cellphone cheat by dialling 1-999-367-3767, for example. This will cause a random explosion to occur somewhere overhead, change your phone's colour, and make it a touch bigger than normal.

Is there a GTA 5 money cheat?

Nope! There's no money cheat in GTA 5.

This applies to both single player and multiplayer, there's no GTA money cheat for either. You'll just have to make dosh the old fashioned way.
