GTA V Cheats

As we all know by now that GTA V is here to stay. Rockstar Games has announced the next iteration of the same game which has frankly made the prospect bitter and disappointing for many gamers out there. 

With the free giveaway of GTA V on Epic games, there is an increasing number of players but little to none changes in the story mode which is bound to make the game boring after completing main missions. But luckily there is a way to make things spicy.

Cheats are commands in the gameplay which offer an altered version of the features in the game making the entire gameplay a bit more interesting and can offer new challenges giving a newfound excitement in-game.

Cheat usage method

For PC, cheats are to be entered in the game console which can be brought up by the tilde button. Upon activation, a pop-up message will be displayed. It is advisable to save the game before applying cheat. 

Another method to enter cheats on PC is to pull up cell phone in-game and dial 1-999-(corresponding PC cheat code converted to numbers) for example 1-999-2288-463 [1-999-CATCHME]

For consoles, cheats are to be entered without pausing the game. Again, it is advisable to save the game before continuing with cheats.

Hopefully, this list of cheats will make your gaming experience much more pleasant and bearable until Rockstar finally releases the next true iteration of GTA. Happy gaming!
