Need some GTA 5 cheats? While there aren't as many available as previous games in the series, Rockstar has still armed players with a plethora of potential options when it comes to enhancing your abilities in GTA 5 on PC. Explosive bullets? Sure. Instantly spawning cars? There's a whole bunch of them. Full invincibility? Why not. You can even teleport up in to the sky, fall to the ground and die. Why? Don't ask. The point is you've got options, and we've got the codes that will let you use them.

Below we've rounded up every GTA 5 cheat that exists, along with the many ways you can apply them. That means PC codes, of course—definitely the easiest way to activate a GTA 5 cheat—but also the input codes for both Xbox and PlayStation pads, as well as the phone numbers you can dial through the in-game cell phone.

If you're searching for a GTA 5 money cheat, then unfortunately you're out of luck. Furthermore, none of these codes will work in GTA Online, where cheating is frowned upon for obvious reasons. Nevertheless, if you do want to make cash for GTA's multiplayer, we've got an extremely detailed GTA Online moneymaking guide that should help you bulk up your bank account the honest way—through crimes. And if you need something to spend that money on, here's our rundown of the fastest cars in GTA Online.

Given that we're unlikely to be seeing GTA 6 for a long, long time, it's still worth maxing out your fun in GTA 5 with the help of these cheats. But if you'd prefer to venture even further back to the past, you can also check out our round-ups of GTA Vice City cheats and GTA San Andreas cheats.

How to use GTA 5 cheats on PC

It's super easy to use GTA 5 cheats. You'll just need to remember the code word. If you don't fancy keeping a notepad to hand, just bookmark this page and return whenever you need to remember how to swim faster.

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 if you like! We won't judge. The game will, however, will: and as such will disable achievements for your current session.
