GTA 3 Cheats: Infinite Ammo, Money, Guns, And More For Grand Theft Auto III: Definitive Edition

Not every old cheat code works, but the vast majority do--here's how to use them.

Comments

GTA 3 cheats--the main reason many of us were on the internet as children. With the release of the new version of Grand Theft Auto III, which comes as part of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition, you might now be on the internet for that very same reason: You want infinite ammo, or to reduce your wanted level, or quick access to a tank, or you want pedestrians to start beating each other up. Understandable.

With all of that in mind, we've culled through our many-years-old list of GTA 3 cheats here on GameSpot and verified that they still work in The Definitive Edition. While these new releases may have improved the visuals and controls and made some other tweaks (like cutting some music, unfortunately), the original cheat codes are still intact. That means if you still have those seared into your memory, you can equip yourself with all of the game's guns by inputting R2, R2, L1, R2, Left, Down, Right, Up, Left, Down, Right, Up on PS4/PS5.

Check out the full list of verified cheat codes below. You can input these at any time during normal gameplay; make sure to use the d-pad for any directional inputs. If entered correctly, you'll see a notification in the top-left corner, although it seems some (like flying cars) are recognized but don't seem to function--we're looking into this now. Additionally, the old invisible vehicles code isn't working at all, possibly due to technical reasons. For a code like faster time, simply enter it again to disable the effect, while repeatedly entering something like speed up/slow down gameplay will enhance the effect.
