GTA 5 cheats and vehicle spawns

GTA 5 cheats
And they say cheaters never prosper.

Winners never cheat and cheaters never win. Unless you're in Los Santos in which case the winners absolutely cheated and will continue to win again and again. If you need to cheat a little in GTA 5 we have all the crib notes you need. Cheat codes for GTA 5 on PC can net you invincibility, any gun or car you like, clear your wanted level, and more.

To bring up GTA 5's console, hit the tilde key (~), or whatever key is directly to the left of the 1 at the top of your keyboard. Type in any of the cheat codes below in all caps just as written. Hit enter and you've now become an official GTA 5 cheater. Spawn yourself a motorcycle and flaming ammo rounds—now you're a winner!

Is there a GTA 5 money cheat?

It's a shame, but GTA 5 sadly has no money cheat for instant cash, and never has. You'll have to earn cash from doing in-game activities instead, like playing the stock market, or from businesses or side missions on the map. You can't glitch the game to receive extra money, either. 

If you're wondering about GTA Online money cheats or hacks, Rockstar firmly doesn't allow them. "Our primary focus is on protecting GTA Online against modifications that could give players an unfair advantage, disrupt gameplay, or cause griefing. It also bears mentioning that because game mods are by definition unauthorized, they may be broken by technical updates, cause instability, or affect your game in other unforeseen ways."
