Cruising for GTA 5 cheats to take over the streets of Grand Theft Auto? You’ve arrived at your destination.

It’s going on a decade since Grand Theft Auto 5 launched, and while Rockstar Games' has kept regular updates rolling out, a helping hand is always welcome. GTA 5 has loads of cheats available to mix things up and refresh your experience. Whether you want to turn Los Santos into your personal bouncy castle with low gravity or make your fists explosive to move your enemies into a new zip code at mach 3: cheats are the old reliable of ramping up the fun.

And even better, getting GTA 5 cheats inputted is pretty easy. Entering GTA 5 cheats on PS4 and Xbox One is as simple as following patterned button inputs (though few are as memorable as the “left, down, right, up, left, down, right, up” pattern from San Andreas). PC cheats are dead simple, and you’ll just press a key on your keyboard and type a word. Access to the bottomless well of fun is that easy.

As an added bonus, these cheats work with GTA on PS5 and Xbox Series X, letting you rampage around with God mode in a visually and technically enhanced Los Santos.

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.
