Unlike GTA 5's cheat codes, which are pretty limited in scope, GTA: San Andreas cheats can mess with your game in all sorts of ways. You can give yourself a jet pack, set gangs loose in the streets, or make every driver in town aggressive. More than they already were, anyway.
Want to wander around in permanent sunset? You can do that. Want to immediately roll around in the Rhino tank? No problem. Want to be dressed in a gimp suit? Sure, no problem.
Below you'll find almost 90 cheat codes to enhance your San Andreas experience, whether that's player enhancements like near-invulnerability or weapons, or just arming every civilian in the game and having them riot through the streets. Whatever fun you fancy.
If you're looking to get more out of the GTA series, we've got plenty of guides to help you get the most out of GTA 5. If you're wondering how to make wads of cash for that game's multiplayer component, we have an extremely detailed moneymaking guide for GTA Online, and a GTA casino guide that explains how to win big in the Diamond Casino and Resort. You can also find the fastest cars in GTA Online here.
Alas, it's clear that GTA 6 won't be with us anytime soon, so for now you can make the most of GTA: San Andreas with this massive list of cheat codes.
How to use GTA: San Andreas cheats
Using cheat codes in GTA: San Andreas is simple—you don't even need to open a console command box to do it. Just type in your desired cheat while playing (not in the pause menu), and it will instantly activate in front of your very eyes. Most cheat codes come in two flavours. There's the gibberish code that's short but difficult to memorise, or a phrase that takes slightly longer to type but actually makes sense. Ultimately both do the same thing, but you'd be forgiven for not remembering that it's "LXGIWYL" that blesses you with a bunch of handy weapons.
You can turn on as many cheats as you like, although some will overwrite others. Just know that it's recommended you don't save with cheats enabled. Doing so, particularly with pedestrian cheats, can cause problems later in the game—potentially blocking your progress entirely.
