Here you find the full list of GTA 4 Cheats for PC, PS3 & Xbox 360, including all GTA 4 cheat codes, as well as cheats for The Lost and Damned & The Ballad of Gay Tony.

The number of cheats in GTA 4 has been greatly reduced compared to previous games such as GTA San Andreas and Vice City: there are 16 cheat codes in GTA 4, with the ability to restore your Health & Armor, get all weapons, remove your wanted level, change the weather and spawn a variety of vehicles. The Episodes from Liberty City (TLAD & TBOGT) introduced 15 additional exclusive cheats.

Cheats in Grand Theft Auto IV allow you to make the game easier when progressing through the story, and to simply have some fun without worrying about dying or getting arrested. While cheats in GTA IV do not prevent from obtaining 100% completion, certain cheats will block some Achievements/Trophies - so it's recommended to save before using cheats in GTA IV.

How To Enter GTA 4 Cheats for Xbox 360, PS3 & PC

Differently from the button-input method of previous games cheat codes, the GTA 4 cheats are entered by dialing phone numbers on Niko's phone:

  • Bring up your in-game phone by pressing UP on the d-pad or keyboard
  • Press UP again to bring up the dial pad
  • Enter GTA 4 cheat codes by "calling" the corresponding phone number from the GTA IV cheats list below

The same method applies to all platforms (PC, PS3, Xbox 360 & Xbox One), and it works the same way also for Luis and Johnny's phone when entering cheats in The Ballad of Gay Tony and The Lost and Damned.

When a GTA IV cheat is successfully activated, a confirmation message will appear on the screen with the text "Cheat activated".

After you enter a cheat for the first time, it will be even easier to enter it again for the subsequent times: you will find all the GTA 4 cheats that you previously entered on your Phone Menu, under "Cheats". From here, you can simply re-select a GTA 4 cheat to activate it again.

It's important to note that all GTA IV cheats are one-time effect cheats, without permanent consequences on the gameplay, so you don't need to worry about having to de-activate cheats in GTA 4.

Do GTA 4 Cheats Disable Achievements?

In Grand Theft Auto IV, using certain cheats will temporarily disable specific Achievements & Trophies for the current game session. Only some cheats have this effect, and they don't block all achievements but just a few select ones that we indicated below:

  • The GTA 4 Health and Armor cheat blocks these Achievements/Trophies: "Cleaned the Mean Streets", "Finish Him", "One Man Army" and "Walk Free"
  • The GTA 4 Weapons Cheats block the achievement / trophy "Cleaned the Mean Streets"
  • The Remove Wanted Level cheat blocks these Achievement/Trophies: "One Man Army" and "Walk Free"
  • The Annihilator & Buzzard Helicopter cheats block these Achievement/Trophies: "One Man Army" and "Walk Free"

The rest of the GTA 4 cheat codes are safe to use without preventing you from unlocking achievements.

When a certain GTA IV cheat blocks an achievement / trophy, you will also get an on-screen prompt along with the confirmation message after entering the cheat.

However, the GTA 4 cheats do not permanently block achievements, but only for the current session. This means that after you turn off the game and reload it, all cheats will be disabled and you will be able to earn achievements again.

In any case, it's recommended that you always save the game before using cheats in GTA IV, so that you always have a "clean" save file you can return to in case something becomes locked or goes wrong.

GTA 4 Money Cheat: How To Make Easy Money

No, there is no Money Cheat Code in GTA 4.

Unlike GTA San Andreas and GTA III, which have dedicated cheat codes that give you $250,000, the money cheat is not present in GTA IV.

However, there is an easy way to make money in GTA 4 using cheats: after completing all of Stevie's Requests, you can spawn a Turismo multiple times and keep delivering it to Stevie's garage for a reward of $11,000 each time.

This trick allows you to make millions in GTA IV in just a few minutes/hours, and will not prevent you from obtaining any achievement!
