Cheating in GTAV kind of completes the whole thing, lying, stealing, killing, stunting real bad ass and yes cheating.

why does weather cheat disable trophies, sometimes i like to play in rain for few hours, i dont see how it affects the trophy situation, weird

Now I don't want to sound like a perv, because of course I am not    <_<    >_>

But is there a cheatcode that unlocks the bedroom scene when I am banging Saphire? Hearing them do it while watching the night turn to day strains my imagination :P

Cheats use to be such a good part of my GTA experience.

They're cheat codes... You would think Rockstar would get more creative... or at least bring back the good ones; flying cars, spawning a Rino, and the most obvious - invincibility. Have they all really been taken away? I had so much fun with these.

It's sad to see codes going extinct in all genres. They were such an integral part of gaming.

If this was an EA game, you'd have to provide credit card details in order to enter these. Only 99c per cheat!

the ideas of gta v on console and cheats on controllers looks funny to me , WE SHOULD WRITE CHEATS ON KEYBOARD ! COME on ROCKSTAR ! PC ALREADY !

I only use the lower wanted level cheat in the game. Cops can be annoying whenever they chasing you for every little bit of punches you do. But i dont cheat when i have stars on main missions.Have fun playing guys i haven't got far in the game yet, I wish i can bring this game at work.=(

where the hell is invincibility, never wanted, infinite special ability, max stats, or add money cheats? these cheats are as lame as GTA IV and most of them don't even help you cause mayhem except for bang bang, slow motion, explosive punch, and fast run.

Cheats? Already?Anywhoo thanks for the video. These type of videos calm my impatience untill the game comes out on PC. And back to the subject of cheats... I like to finish without them once or twice then bring in the helping codes

It has lot more cheats, go to IGN to see.

Where is the "detonate upon impact" cheat?  What if we wanted to make ourselves a bomb?  What could we do?  Isn't there anyone to help us do that?

I presume using any of these will disable trophies and achievements. Those who are interested in such things, might want to back up their save before trying any of the codes.

@WolfgarTheQuiet please email them. For real, sometimes developers need the feedback in order to chain certain things. This is something they can take into account if you tell them :)

@kyleweeeeeeeeee its because of dumb ass trophy's, dont get why would weather cheat disable trophyies, it doesnt affect the game, its stupid

@4-Legged-Shark I know I posted all cheats below and then someone else did, how hard was that, but GS couldn't be bothered I guess

@xSlugox No trophies or achievements, apparently. Make a separate save :)

@vduong942 Seriously. It's not as though they couldn't add flying cars and invincibility. There's no good reason those aren't here.

How long did it take you to copy and paste this info? 30 seconds? A minute? GameSpot apparently just couldn't be bothered to do it.

@rol3xx I almost thought cheat codes were a thing of the past. Most games only show Achievements when you click on their Hints and Cheats section on Gamespot. I've even heard of cheat codes as DLC or microtransactions. That's bad, because cheat codes can make a game much more fun. It's like with mods, they give you new ways to approach the game, keeps off the feeling of been-there-done-that.

@amdreallyfast explosive melee attacks is pretty close in this regard. at least when punching vehicles

penpusher

@Lhomity if it's the same as gta iv then it will only disable them for as long as the cheats are on.

mkeezay22
mkeezay22

@Lhomity Yes it disables trophies/acheivements while activated but you can just disable them and I'm not sure if you can use them during missions I haven't tried.

@WolfgarTheQuiet @kyleweeeeeeeeee doesnt affect the game? are you retarded or did you really forget how a storm could affect driving or flying? both of which play a major part of the game?

@Hurvl I know cheats make the game fun I still use them just not on the first run about. I either use cheats or trainers. And regarding mods ...I have had trouble with trojan mods on San Andreas so I decided not to try them.
And I do not care much for achievments either

felipe_k3

@Hurvl of course. They give us the lamest cheat codes and even block the trophies. I tried to cause some mayhem after the first mission but without money or codes it's kinda hard to.

@HesamB @juno21 I call bullsh*t lol. Then explain your previous post, thats the writing of a 12 year old.

@felipe_k3 @Hurvl Trophies, achievements mean nothing to me. It's all about having the most fun playing the game and that's usually using cheats. I like playing RPG's without cheats, because making a certain build and figuring what to focus on is part of the fun. In singleplayer FPS games, though, they're way too fun to ignore.
