Some people might think that using cheats in a video game is not what the developers intended for you to do, but in a Grand Theft Auto game, it is usually the opposite situation. GTA 5 PC cheats not only let you do things that you normally couldn’t but they also make certain gameplay segments easier and can even get the police off of your tail.

Best of all is that you know that Rockstar intended for you to use these cheats. Why? Well, they’re accessible for one thing but, beyond that, there’s no money cheat - they want to make you work for that cash, even if they’re giving you a slight helping hand through cheat codes. Here are some of the best GTA 5 PC Cheats and what they do in the single-player game.

For each cheat, we’ll tell you the console command for it, the cell phone number, and the controller input on an Xbox-format controller. That gives you multiple options for how you access the cheat and is useful for players that might need multiple ways to activate it. Keep in mind that, unlike a map editor GTA 5 mod, these GTA 5 PC cheats do not change the core gameplay but merely give you access to some quick options that modify immediate gameplay conditions. If you want some more serious modding power, you will need to use mods as cheats won’t really work like that.
