If you're looking for some sweet GTA 5 cheats to turn you into the all-powerful king (or queen) of Los Santos, we've got your back.

Though it's been nearly a decade since GTA 5's 2013 launch, Rockstar's iconic action shoot-'em-up remains extremely popular – especially with GTA 5 excelling on next-gen consoles. While Rockstar Games has kept regular updates rolling out, did you know that you can use cheats to make the game entirely your own?

Inputting GTA 5 cheats and codes is pretty easy, even for those new to the game's cheat system. Entering GTA 5 cheats on PS4 and Xbox One is as simple as pressing a series of buttons in a specific order. PC cheats are dead simple: you just press a key on your keyboard and type a word.

If you’ve upgraded to a next-gen console, you’re in luck; these cheats also work with both PS5 and Xbox Series X|S copies of the game. So, if you need to drop your Wanted level or spawn in some high–end GTA 5 supercars, read on as we run through all the cheat codes in the game and give you tips for implementing them on your platform of choice.

GTA 5 cheats: opening the cheat box

GTA 5 cheats: all the codes from free cash to wanted stars (3)

The way you input cheats in GTA 5 is different on each platform and will depend on which kind of gamepad or input method you’re using. Keep it in mind that activating cheats will make you incapable of popping achievements or trophies on your given platform. Here’s a handy list so you don’t get lost.

We advise not to save after using cheats in GTA 5 as some are unable to be reversed, while others can be if you enter the cheat code again.

How to input cheats on consoles

If you’re playing with a PlayStation controller (including the DualShock 4 and DualSense) then you don't need to specifically open a cheats box. Instead, when in-game, you’ll just have to follow the inputs listed below to the best of your ability. Once you finish the sequence the cheat should activate.

The same goes if you're playing GTA 5 with an Xbox wireless controller on Xbox Series X|S, One, or 360.

How to input cheats on PC

On PC you’ll need to hit the tilde key on your keyboard when in-game to open the cheats console. The key looks like this '~' and should be hiding underneath the 'ESC' button on your keyboard. If you're in a region outside the US, hit whichever button is below the ESC key. Hitting this key will open up the developer console where you can input cheats.

How to use your phone to input cheats on all platforms

Across all platforms, you can use your in-game phone to activate GTA 5 cheats if you prefer. This involves opening your phone, navigating to the contacts screen, and then hitting the prompt to activate the keypad where you can key in the phrase, fronted by 1-999-.

GTA 5 cheats: FAQs

GTA 5 cheats: all the codes from free cash to wanted stars (8)

Is there a GTA 5 money cheat?

Unfortunately, GTA 5 doesn't have any money cheats, you'll have to earn your cash the old-fashioned way. But some of the cheats in this article could make earning money easier, even if they won't immediately bloat your bank balance.

What's the best GTA 5 cheat?

It depends on your personal preference but our favorite GTA 5 cheat is the God mode cheat, which allows you to be invincible for five minutes at a time. We find the lower your wanted level cheat to be the most useful and practical. If you're feeling impractical, however, we strongly recommend explosive punches (though, you may well find your incandescent fists lead to a rapid increase in your wanted level).
