Maybe you're visiting Liberty City for the first time, or revisiting thanks for the hype for the latest instalment. Either way, to make your playthrough even more ridiculousness, from spawning a helicopter to max ammo, we've got all the cheats you need.

To make things easier, we've broken these cheats into three parts, cheats for GTA 4, cheats for Lost and Damned and cheats for The Ballad of Gay Tony. Remember though, that entering cheats will disable the ability to unlock Achievements or Trophies for the duration of that playthrough - so make sure that, if you care about them, you have an old save handy!

How to enter cheats in GTA 4

To enter cheats into Grand Theft Auto 4, you'll need to bring up Nico's phone and dial the corresponding phone number - or really, cheat code - from the table below.

It's dead simple and doesn't run you the risk of accidentally charging into traffic or punching someone on the street like the directional codes of GTAs gone past. Note that when the code is successfully activated you'll receive a "cheat code activated" message to confirm.
