Grand Theft Auto 5 Cheats / Tips
- Free Weapon Upgrades (Exploit) – During a mission, visit an Ammu-Nation and purchase a weapon and all upgrades. Kill yourself after and the mission will fail. This will give you all your money back, however if you visit the Ammu-Nation again, the upgrades on the weapon will still be marked as purchased.
- Very Easy Money (Exploit)
In the ocean near the north side of the map, you can check underwater to find a crashed airplane. When the airplane crashed, a briefcase full of money (around $12,000) also found its way to the sea bed. You can swim to find the wreckage and the briefcase. After you collect that briefcase, you can then immediately switch to another character and then switch back to the one who was located near the briefcase. When you do, the briefcase will have reappeared. The character who is underwater will collect the case again and his supply of air will return. You can repeatedly use this trick to quickly amass a small fortune.To make this trick even more useful, you can set things up so that you’re switching repeatedly between two characters who are both near a briefcase found in a separate area (they can’t both be near the briefcase that is underwater because one of the two characters will soon drown from a lack of oxygen). That way, you’re rapidly building a fortune for both characters, instead of for one of them at a time.
- GTA 5 Cheat Codes
You must enter the GTA 5 cheat codes on the gamepad, much like classic GTA games. Use the D-pad to enter the directional commands (LEFT, RIGHT etc.). These codes must be input fairly quickly. A small confirmation will appear above the map and trophies will be disabled.RIGHT, X, RIGHT, LEFT, RIGHT, R1, RIGHT, LEFT, X, TRIANGLE – Invincibility

- Extra Customization
To get more character customizations, go onto the Lifeinvader social network. If you log in and begin “Stalking” people, you will begin unlocking new character customizations. To get new hair styles for instance, stalk Herr Kurtz Barber.
- Jump Locations
On your in-game browser, go to junkenergydrink.com/page5 to see the locations of all of the Stunt Jumps.
- Ammu-Nation Discount
If players complete all Gun Range challenges, they will receive a 25% discount at all Ammu-Nation stores.
- Armored Vehicles Mean Easy Money
In the beginning hours of the game, one of the easiest ways to make money is to rob an armored vehicle. They appear as blips on the minimap while you are driving around. Take out the drivers, then shoot the back doors in the center by the handles to have it open. Collect the money, which is often worth over $5000, then escape the cops.
- Fallout: New Vegas Reference
Near the north side of the map, you’ll find a diner called Up-n-Atom that has a statue of a rocket positioned next to it. The color scheme resembles the one used for the Rocket Souvenir item in Fall Out: New Vegas. If you get near the rocket, you’ll hear the sound of radiation, like you’d get from a reader in the Fallout series.
- Familiar Character References
If you’re paying attention, you can find references in the game to characters that should be familiar if you played past GTA titles.Brucie Kibbutz returns on Bleeper, GTA’s equivalent to Twitter.
Niko Bellic’s old friend Packie McReary returns. Franklin can help him during a heist, and he’ll be part of your crew for the rest of the game.
Niko Bellic is mentioned during the first heist, described as an “Eastern-European” that was making a name for himself back in Liberty City and got out of the business. He also shows up on Jimmy’s LifeInvader page, along with Roman.
Johnny, the biker who has a memorable dispute when Trevor is introduced as a playable character in GTA 5, is a returning character from The Lost & Damned.
