GTA 3 cheats can bring a lot of chaos to Rockstar's classic sandbox. And now that the GTA Remastered Trilogy is here, there's a good reason to dust off those old codes. With that in mind, the GTA: Vice City and San Andreas cheats should come in handy, too.

Whether you want to increase your Wanted level, load up on some extra cash, or just change the weather, these cheats will help you live your dream in the big city. So without further ado, here are the GTA 3 cheats so you can spice up your return to Liberty City.

How to use GTA 3 cheats 

Before you get started, make sure you save the game before entering the cheat code. Some codes will mess with certain missions, even if you deactivate them. This means you might not be able to finish the story, so it will save you a headache in the long run if you can just reload a previous save.

With that in mind, type in the code for the cheat you want to activate while in-game—not when the game is paused or in any menus—and a pop-up will appear to let you know the cheat is active.

GTA 3 – The Definitive Edition cheats 

The release of GTA: The Trilogy means you can jump back in and enjoy Liberty City—and Vice City and San Andreas—all over again. Even if you're playing for the first time, it's a chance to see the games in all their remastered glory. And that includes cheats, right?

For the most part, yes. Cheats arguably played a big part in the original games, and the majority remain intact for GTA 3. You can see which cheats work with GTA 3 – The Definitive Edition in the lists below.

Sarah's earliest gaming memories involve playing Jet Set Willy on the ZX Spectrum at a friend's house. These days, and when not writing guides, most of her spare time goes into MMOs—though she's quite partial to JRPGs too. She has spent much of the last decade playing the likes of Star Wars: The Old Republic, TERA, Final Fantasy 14, and World of Warcraft. Sarah has been writing about games for several years and, before joining PC Gamer, freelanced for the likes of TechRadar, GamingBible, and Rock Paper Shotgun. One of her fondest hopes is to one day play through the ending of Final Fantasy X without breaking down into a sobbing heap. She probably has more wolves in Valheim than you.
