This page contains a complete list of GTA 5 Cheat Codes for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC versions of Grand Theft Auto 5. The upper section of this page includes button codes and cheats, while the lower section includes a number of guides and exploits, including how to get infinite money and health.
How to Enter Cheat Codes
Cheat codes come in two types. Cell Phone Cheats were introduced in next-generation incarnations of GTA 5 and allow players to enter cheats by dialing certain numbers on their cell phone. See a Complete List of cell phone cheats..
Button cheats are available on all platforms. You must enter the GTA 5 cheat codes on the gamepad, much like classic GTA games. Use the D-pad to enter the directional commands (LEFT, RIGHT etc.). These codes must be executed fairly quickly. A small confirmation will appear above the map. Entering cheat codes disables Achievements and Trophies, but only for the current play session. Reset your game and your Achievement/Trophy ability will return.
For convenience, the GTA 5 cheat code lists have been translated for both console type controllers:

Landing Safely With the Skyfall Cheat
When using the Skyfall cheat, if you do a direct vertical faceplant, you will land safely. This is especially useful for making quick travel around the map.
Earn Infinite Money Even More Quickly
If you want an endless supply of cash, wait until you have two characters at your disposal.
Video: Infinite Money Hack
Send one character to the ocean floor hovering over the flashing Hidden Package near the sunken airplane. As soon as you grab the cash, switch characters, then immediately switch back. Each switch will refill the underwater character’s oxygen bar and cause the package of cash to respawn. Repeating this sequence allows for unlimited money farming.
For quicker gains, place the second character near the underwater plane crash site on the northwest section of the map inn the Paleto Bay neighborhood. Then switch between two characters, each placed over a Hidden Packages. You cannot bring both to the same spot it will drown one of them. This will also slowly max out your lung capacity.
Fire Through One-Way Glass
If you have wanted level stars, drive to a nearby haircut store in Los Santos and block the door with the car you drove in. Then, perch yourself near the window. You can easily shoot through the glass when the LSPD cannot. They will most likely stand right up to the window and sit there, but they can move around. Use this bug to raise your stars to any wished amount and you can escape or just kill cops for ammo.
Easy Early Game Money
In the beginning hours of the game, one of the easiest ways to make money is to rob an armored vehicle. They appear as blips on the minimap while you are driving around. Take out the drivers, then shoot the back doors in the center by the handles to have it open. Collect the money, which is often worth over $5000, then escape the cops.
Instant Vehicle Repair
You can fix any car at any time during open world play, as long as you have access to at least two characters. When your Vehicle is ailing, switch away to another character, then immediately switch back. Your Vehicle will be completely restored.
Instant Health Refill
Similar to the Instant Vehicle repair exploit, Instant Health Refill works outside of Missions and requires two characters to perform. Simply switch characters when badly wounded and immediately switch back. Your life meter will be restored.
Free Weapon Upgrades
During a mission, visit an Ammu-Nation and purchase a weapon and all upgrades. Kill yourself after and the mission will fail. This will give you all your money back, however if you visit the Ammu-Nation again, the upgrades on the weapon will still be marked as purchased.
Flip People Off
While in a car select “Unarmed” from your weapon wheel. Then Press L1 (LB on the Xbox 360) to flip people off “The One Finger Salute.” Note you can see this feature better in a Convertable car or on a motor bike.
Perform a Flip
After jumping using X (Xbox) or SQUARE (PS3) you can start doing a flip by pressing B (Xbox) or CIRCLE (PS3). The higher you are the better. You can also use this to tackle people.
To get more character customizations, go onto the Lifeinvader social network. If you log in and begin “Stalking” people, you will begin unlocking new character customizations. To get new hair styles for instance, stalk Herr Kurtz Barber.
Slow Down Time When Driving With All Characters
If you want to use Franklins special ability with any character you can simply hold open the radio wheel while drivng. Note that time will be slower than when using Franklins ability but all driving controls will still be functional.
If players complete all Gun Range challenges, they will receive a discount at all Ammu-Nation stores.
- All Bronze or Better – 10% Discount
- All Silver or Better – 15% Discount
- All Gold – 25% Discount
Losing Wanted Level Faster
There are a couple quick ways to have your wanted level drop. One is to go through a Mod Shop. So long as no officer sees you pull in, you will come out with no wanted level. A second way is to switch vehicles. When you first become wanted, the vehicle you are in is reported, so switching cars will help you to elude the police easier. You can also lose cop cars quickly by driving on train tracks, they will not follow you.
Foolproof Way to Steal the P-996 Lazer Jet Fighter
Go to the military base as Franklin in a decently fast car with your special bar filled. Drive at the front gate at full speed and activate his driving ability just before you break through the gate arm. Make your first right and then a quick left and drive up the runway to the jet with his special on as long as possible. Most times you will reach the P-996 Lazer jet before the alarm even goes off. This works 9/10 times once you memorize the location and if you’re not unlucky enough for a tank to happen to be right next to the jet. Fly away like a boss.
Hint: If you land the plane in the hangar by Trevor‘s house, (not the one you buy) pull all the way in to basically near the back of the hangar and quick save. Now load the game again and you should be inside your jet plane AND a second perfectly undamaged one will be waiting for you at the entrance of the hangar as well.
