Satisfying though it is to gently tease a murderous rampage out of the GTA sandbox, sometimes you just want to cut out the middle man (so to speak), and get stuck into the worst of it right now. Use these codes to instantly arm yourself to the teeth, then drop all the cavalry the game has to offer on your head. Oh, and then run away extra quickly once you've finished off any stragglers.
Player cheats: invincibility, health, armour, weapons and more
Drunkenness: Unlike the real world, where drinking turns you into a god, being pissed in GTA 5 is only going to make things that little bit harder. One for the masochists.
|PS3||Triangle, Right, RIght, Left, Right, Square, O, Left|
|Xbox 360||Y, Right, Right, Left, Right, X, B, Left|
Fast Swimming: If you've found yourself in the drink and you need to get back to shore quickly, tap out this code to pick up your character's pace in the water.
|PS3||Left, Left, L1, Right, Right, R2, Left, L2, Right|
|Xbox 360||Left, Left, LB, Right, Right, RT, Left, LT, Right|
Fast Running: Once you're back on dry land, and need to put a little bit of oomph into your step, use this code to have your character sprint from target to target with joy in his heart, and a knife in his hand.
|PS3||Triangle, Left, Right, Right, L2, L1, Square|
|Xbox 360||Y, Left, Right, Right, LT, LB, X|
Give Parachute: Let's be honest, if you find yourself in dire need of cheating with this code, it's probably too late to tap it in. It's much more sensible to get it in the bank before setting off on a killing spree, so it's there to stop you suffering a rather embarrassing end to your endeavours.
|PS3||Left ,Right, L1, L2, R1, R2, R2, Left, Left, Right, L1|
|Xbox 360||Left, Right, LB, LT, RB, RT, RT, Left, Left, Right, LB|
Give Weapons & Ammo: If you're the kind of person who would rather drive for two minutes to pick up a newspaper than get up off your backside and walk for five, you'll want to take advantage of the weapon unlock code. Also useful when you find yourself short of a clip or two mid-rampage.
|PS3||Triangle, R2, Left, L1, X ,Right, Triangle, Down, Square, L1, L1, L1|
|Xbox 360||Y, RT, Left, LB, A, Right, Y, Down, X, LB, LB, LB|
Invincibility: Introducing GTA's God Mode, where you're free to torch the police, stand in the middle of a pretty pile of grenades, and do so safe in the knowledge that you can't suffer even a scratch. Well, for five minutes at least, after which point you'll probably want to apply the code again rather sharpish.
|PS3||Right, X, Right, Left, Right, R1, Right, Left, X, Triangle|
|Xbox 360||Right, A, Right, Left, Right, RB, Right, Left, A, Y|
Max Health & Armour: If you're struggling to complete a mission and need a health and armour boost, consider putting this code into action. As with all of the cheat codes in this guide, just keep in mind that switching this on will prevent you from earning any Achievements or Trophies.
|PS3||O, LT, Triangle, R2, X ,Square, O, Right, Square, L1, L1, L1|
|Xbox 360||B, LB, Y, RT, A, X, B, Right, X, L|B, LB, LB|
Super Jump: If you want to get a slightly loftier view of the anarchy you're initiating, or are just struggling to get into a hard-to-reach place, you can enable the Super Jump cheat code to hit the parts that other psychopaths just can't reach.
|PS3||L2, L2, Square, O, O, L2, Square, Square, Left, Right, X|
|Xbox 360||Left, Left, Y, Y, Right, Right, Left, Right, X, RB, RT|
Recharge Special Ability: Each character in the game has their own special ability, but it can only be used for a certain amount of time before the meter runs out. That's unless you have this code to hand, in which case you'll be able to top up the ability as often as you wish.
|PS3||X, X, Square, R1, L1, X, Right, Left, X|
|Xbox 360||A, A, X, RB, LB, A, Right, Left, A|
Skyfall: This cheat punts you high up in the air, and is best used in conjunction with a parachute, not to mention a fast-firing automatic weapon if you're planning to get many shots in before pulling the cord.
|PS3||L1, L2, R1, R2, Left, Right, Left, Right, L1, L2, R1, R2, Left, Right, Left, Right|
|Xbox 360||LB, LT, RB, RT, Left, Right, Left, Right, LB, LT, RB, RT, Left, Right, Left, Right|
Slow-Motion Aiming: The benefit here's pretty obvious, and entering this code ensures you have a little more time to line up your shots before pulling the trigger. Handy when the heat's all around you, and the only way to bust your way out is to kill every last living thing in sight.
|PS3||Square, L2, R1, Triangle, Left, Square, L2, Right, X|
|Xbox 360||X, LT, RB, Y, Left, X, LT, Right, A|
Wanted Level - Raise: City life just a little too peaceful for you? This code will increase your wanted level by one star each time it's applied, ensuring instant carnage is never too far away. It's certainly one way of spawning the game's more powerful vehicles.
|PS3||R1, R1, O, R2, Left, Right, Left, Right, Left, Right|
|Xbox 360||RB, RB, B, RT, Left, Right, Left, Right, Left, Right|
Wanted Level - Lower: If you're struggling to lose the heat and have found things just a little too overwhelming for your tastes, tap out this code to bring your wanted level down bit by bit. Use in tandem with the code above to grant yourself a heavily-armoured, heavily-armed vehicle, then shoo the previous owners away. Shoo.
|PS3||R1, R1, O, R2, Right, Left, Right, Left, Right, Left|
|Xbox 360||RB, RB, B, RT, Right, Left, Right, Left, Right, Left|
