GTA Vice City Cheats explained: what you need to know about cheat codes in Vice City

While entering cheats is all pretty simple, there are a few things to bear in mind when you're thinking of using them. Here's a quick rundown of what you should know.

gta_vice_city_cheats_1
  • Save before you enter them - this is an obvious one, but make sure you always save before entering cheats, just in case something goes wrong and you cause a little too much havoc.
  • A lot of cheats can't be deactivated - whilst re-entering most "mode"-style cheats (ones that toggle something on or off, like slow motion for instance) will bring up a "Cheat Deactivated" notification, we often found when testing them out that this didn't do anything and the cheat remained active until we quit the game or reloaded a save. This is another reason to save your game first!
  • Some of the below cheats are untested - we've tested every single one in the PC section to confirm that they work, but haven't been able to run through all of their console equivalents. We've cross-referenced them from a few sources to triple-check, but do just take those with a slight pinch of salt.
  • We've excluded some cheats that don't work - the "Fat Skin", "Skinny Skin", "Invincibility" and "Smoke a Cigarette" cheats work on PC but don't work on consoles, so we've excluded them from the consoles lists. Likewise the cheats for spawning a Helicopter, Aeroplane, Motorbikes and Buying All Properties don't work on PC or consoles, so we've excluded them altogether.

GTA Vice City mobile cheats: can you enter cheat codes in Vice City on iOS and Android?

The last thing you might still be wondering is about the mobile version of Vice City, where there's no controller or keyboard that you can use to input the cheats listed above.

gta_vice_city_cheats_6

Thankfully, you can actually use a workaround to enter cheats if you're really keen on doing so and don't mind a little hassle. In brief, you'll need to download a third-party keyboard app or program that allows a keyboard to be used as a kind of overlay to any mobile games you're playing. With that, you can then type in the letter-based cheats as listed in our PC Cheats section, and they'll work as usual.

As always, we do recommend you exercise caution in downloading third-party software of course, so if you're dead set on using cheats in the mobile version of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, do your research first and be aware that you're doing so at your own risk! Again, make sure you save your game first just in case, too.
