GTA: San Andreas cheats – every vehicle, weapon and stat boost code

The GTA: San Andreas cheats for the original game are a lot of fun—they let you play around with Rockstar's sandbox and unlock an arsenal of vehicles and weapons to use. San Andreas' lifestyle and fitness mechanics also added a lot of cheat potential, giving you the ability to never go hungry, gain infinite lung capacity, or strip yourself of fat and muscle.

Compared to its older, wackier brother, GTA 5 is actually quite restrictive. You can do almost anything you want with San Andreas, from donning a jetpack, starting an all gang war in the streets, to making every driver instantly aggressive. More so that regular GTA drivers already are, anyway.

Below you'll find nearly 90 San Andreas cheats to enhance your experience, from basic player enhancements like invulnerability or weapon and vehicle spawns, to the more exotic stuff: new outfits and altered civilian behaviours. Yes, you can arm every civilian and have them riot through the streets. And you should, too. 

With GTA 6 still a long ways off, now's a great time to revisit the classics. That said, here's a massive list of GTA: San Andreas cheats for you to enjoy.

How to use GTA: San Andreas cheats

  • To activate a GTA: San Andreas cheat, you can use either the code or phrase listed next to your desired effect below. Both work the same, although the phrase is easier to remember.
  • Once you've got your cheat, just type it while playing the game—not paused.
  • A small pop up will appear in the top corner alerting you to your success. You can then enter another cheat if you desire.
  • Remember not to save while cheats are active. Some—such as the pedestrian cheats—can actually soft lock your progress through the game.

GTA: San Andreas – The Definitive Edition cheats

The awkwardly named GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition launched on November 11, giving us new, remastered versions of GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas.

The majority of GTA: San Andreas' current cheat codes will work with the new Definitive Edition release—they're an iconic part of the original games, after all, and it makes sense for Rockstar to retain them. The tables below detail what works and what doesn't in the newly remastered version.
