GTA 5 cheats: every cheat code and vehicle spawn code

(Image credit: Rockstar)

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. GTA 5 cheat codes for PC can net you invincibility, any gun or car you like, clear your wanted level, and more.

Further down the page we also have the console versions of each code in case you prefer playing GTA 5 with a controller. The codes are a bit harder to remember than the PC commands, but they do work on PC as well—you'll simply need a controller to input them.

Naturally, none of these cheats work in GTA 5 Online, but if you're wondering how to make wads of cash in the 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.

There's almost no way we're getting GTA 6 in 2020 so for this year, you'll want to keep making the most of GTA 5 with all of these handy cheat codes.

How to use GTA 5 cheat codes

Fortunately using cheat codes in GTA 5 is super easy. You'll just need to remember the code word. Try writing your favorites on your hand. Or just bookmark this page and come back when you forget one.

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!

Director mode

JRTALENT - Launches the director mode in the Rockstar Editor.

In director mode you can choose an NPC to play as and combine with any other cheats as needed. Good to use for making joke trailers, memes, or machinima shows. Get creative!

GTA 5 controller and phone codes

Believe it or not, the console version of GTA 5 cheats can actually be used on PC. So can the cell phone numbers. 

If you happen to be playing GTA 5 with a controller on your PC, this is an alternate way to enter them. They're a bit harder to remember than the console commands above but maybe your muscle memory is so good that you prefer the Konami Code style of cheat entry. 

For the Xbox and PlayStation controller versions of each code, just enter the sequence of buttons in relatively quick succession and you'll get an on-screen notification that you've succeeded. To use the phone numbers, just pull out your character's cell and dial the code provided.

GTA 5 money cheat?

(Image credit: Rockstar)

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."
