GTA 5 Cheats PC List & Guide: All GTA V Cheat Codes for PC

On this page you find the full list of GTA 5 Cheats for PC, and the ultimate GTA 5 Cheats PC guide, with details on how to activate them, FAQs, and all Cheat Codes for the GTA V Expanded & Enhanced edition.

Cheats have a long history in the Grand Theft Auto series, and GTA 5 continues the tradition, with 34 cheat codes for PC at the player's disposal. You can use GTA 5 cheats on PC to create chaos with Michael, Franklin and Trevor, progress through the story faster, or simply have fun in Los Santos.

The available GTA 5 PC cheats include effects such as Invincibility, maximum Health & Armor, the ability to remove your wanted level, get all weapons and armor, spawn various vehicles, and many many more. However, Rockstar Games has not added some classic GTA cheat codes, as there is no GTA 5 money cheat, and there is no cheat to spawn a Tank.

How To Enter GTA 5 Cheats on PC

Differently from the PlayStation and Xbox versions, there are three possible ways to enter GTA V cheats for PC. The fastest method is using the keyboard phrases via the PC "Cheat Code box", but you can also use the GTA 5 Phone Cheats and controller buttons.

You can enter the GTA 5 PC cheats at any time during general gameplay using the method you prefer:

  • PC Commands Cheats: bring up the GTA 5 "Cheat Code" box by hitting the key to the left of "1" on your keyboard (the tilde "~" or "\" key). Then, simply type on your keyboard the command for the desired GTA V PC cheats, and press enter.
  • Cell Phone Cheats: bring up your in-game phone by pressing UP access the Contact List and press SPACEBAR to bring up the dial pad. Then, dial the phone number for your desired GTA V cheat.
  • Controller Cheats: if you're playing with a gamepad, you can reference the GTA 5 Xbox Cheats and GTA 5 PlayStation cheats for the required button combinations.

To confirm the activation of the effect, a "Cheat Activated" message will appear on the bottom left of the screen.

Unlike cheats in GTA IV, the GTA 5 phone cheats are not stored on the cellphone and must be re-entered each time. However, you can press * on the dial pad to quickly re-enter the last cheat you used.

You can de-activate some GTA V cheats on PC by simply re-entering them, although certain cheats require you to restart the game or reload a previous save file in order to remove them. The GTA 5 cheats also get disabled when your character dies.

Note: many cheats cannot be activated during missions or activities, and only work in Freeroam. In those cases, the game will show a "Cheat Denied" message.

Do GTA 5 Cheats Disable Achievements?

Using cheat codes in GTA 5 for PC will temporarily disable Achievements, but only for the current play session.

This means that after you restart the game and reload the save file, cheats will be de-activated and you will be able to earn achievements / accomplishments again. While there is a lot of misinformation about this topic, this is the definitive answer. So unlike classic GTA games, the GTA 5 cheats for PC don't permanently block Achievements, even if you saved while cheats were active.

Activating GTA V cheat codes on PC also prevents you from getting a higher rating than Bronze medals in missions, but again, just for the current game session until you restart the game. It's also important to note that using GTA 5 cheat codes doesn't prevent you from obtaining 100% completion of the game, they're safe to use.

In any case, it's always recommended to save the game before using cheats in Grand Theft Auto V, so that you always have a "clean" save slot where you have not used cheats.

GTA 5 Cheats PC: Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a GTA 5 Money Cheat for PC?

No, there is no unlimited money cheat code in GTA 5 for PC - not in single-player, and of course, neither in GTA Online.

There are many videos on the internet about the GTA 5 PC Money Cheat, as well as other fake cheats - but they're not present in the actual game, they're only a result of modding on PC.

Unlike GTA San Andreas and GTA III, which have dedicated cheat codes that give you $250,000, the money cheat has not been included by Rockstar Games in GTA 5.

However, there are some great ways to make money in GTA 5: The best method is to save Lester's Assassination missions until the end of the story missions, after completing all heists. This will ensure you have the maximum money to invest in the stock market thanks to the Assassinations, allowing you to earn millions across all three characters.

Can cheats be used in GTA Online?

No, the GTA V cheats for PC cannot be used in GTA Online. The same applies to PlayStation and Xbox platforms

All the GTA cheat codes for PC are exclusive to the single-player mode of the game, there are no GTA Online cheats.

Also, if you install any GTA 5 mods, you will not be able to access GTA Online with an altered version of the game, as mods are only allowed in single-player.

Can you save the game after using cheats in GTA 5?

Yes, you can safely save the game when using GTA 5 cheat codes, as their effect is not saved and does not carry over when reloading a save.

If you used cheats, you won't be able to earn Achievements just for the current session. This effect will no longer be a problem after you restart the game.

After restarting the game, the cheats will be de-activated, and you will now be able to earn achievements / accomplishments again. You can also still obtain 100% in a save file where you used cheats.

How to disable cheats in GTA 5 for PC?

Some GTA V cheats on PC can be disabled by simply re-entering them a second time, or are automatically disabled when your character dies.

However, certain cheat codes cannot be disabled during the current playthrough, and the only way to de-activate them is to restart the game or reload a previous save file.

Can you use GTA 5 cheats during missions? What is the "Cheat Denied" message?

During missions or specific areas of gameplay, certain GTA cheat codes cannot be activated. These include the GTA 5 Invincibility Cheaty, Drunk Mode, Slow Motion Aim, Explosive Attacks/Ammo, Moon Gravity, the Skyfall cheat, and more.

If you enter a cheat code when it is unavailable, the game will show the following message: "Cheat Denied: Cannot activate that cheat right now."

Either way, using any of the other cheats during a mission will prevent you from obtaining a higher rating than a Bronze Medal.

The same "Cheat Denied" message may also appear when trying to spawn vehicles in small or restricted areas. In this case, try the GTA 5 cheats to spawn vehicles in a larger area where there is more open space, especially for the GTA 5 helicopter cheat.

GTA 5 Cheats: Play as Any Character & Animals (via Director Mode)

In addition to the main single-player mode and the GTA Online multiplayer, Grand Theft Auto V for PC, PS4, and Xbox One also comes with a special "Director Mode".

The GTA 5 Director Mode gives you the freedom to play as any character model in the game, from Story Mode characters, hundreds of NPC & Pedestrians and even Animals - and free-roam around San Andreas. You can also select your GTA Online character.

In Director Mode you can also fully control your free-roam experience by adjusting various Settings, such as Location, Time of Day, Weather, Wanted Status, Pedestrian Density, and Vehicle Density.

Via the Settings menu, you can also permanently activate certain cheats like Invincibility, Flaming Bullets, Explosive Bullets, Explosive Melee, Super Jump, Slidey Cars, and Low Gravity. All the other cheats can also be activated by entering the respective button combinations.

With the Director Mode in GTA V, you can stage creative scenes, record them, and later edit them in the Rockstar Editor and share them with the community.

How To Access Director Mode in GTA 5

The GTA 5 Director Mode can be accessed in various ways when playing Story Mode:

  • From the Pause Menu, by accessing the "Rockstar Editor" tab and then selecting "Director Mode".
  • From the Player Interaction Menu
  • From the In-Game Phone by selecting the contact "Acting Up"
  • By dialing the Phone number directly (similarly to a Cheat Code): 1-999-57-825368

Thanks to Director Mode, Grand Theft Auto V is the first game since GTA Vice City that allows you to play as different character models, similarly to the Character Skin Cheats in GTA Vice City.
