The Grand Theft Auto series is famous (or infamous) to the general public as the number one video game to be blamed for the several highly violent crimes. Whether these allegations hold true or not, it is an undeniable fact that this video game series appeals to many people around the world. In fact, with at least 33.8 million people playing the multiplayer mode of the latest entry in the series, Grand Theft Auto V, the Grand Theft Auto series seems to be even more popular than ever.
Among various reasons for the series’ popularity, the hidden cheat codes in the games are a time honored tradition of the Grand Theft Auto series. These cheat codes have various effects on the game, ranging from simply useful, like the cheat codes that unlock all the weapons, to amusingly useless, like the code that turns your character hilariously drunk. With that said, here are some of the top cheat codes for the PC version of the game to spice up your GTA V experience:
Are you in a tight spot? Are the police surrounding you everywhere? Maybe you went too fast in your getaway vehicle and crashed? If so, then the health and armor cheat code is exactly what you need. Typing “TURTLE” in the console command will raise your character’s health and armor back up to maximum. This is very handy for those near-death situations that are prevalent in the Grand Theft Auto series.
But maybe it is just simply impossible to get out alive, not even with multiple entries of the health and armor cheat code. The cheat code “PAINKILLER” is your best bet then. Feel like a god among men with your newly found invincibility, perfect for those gaming sessions when you simply need to vent out your frustrations on the countless NPC’s in the game. Combine the above with the code “TOOLUP”, which will give you all the weapons and ammo, for maximum catharsis.
And for those players who want to challenge themselves, the cheat code “FUGITIVE” will allow them to do so. See how far your skills, weapons, and a little bit of luck can take you by raising your “wanted level” up to the maximum. And if you get tired of that, you can always lower your “wanted level” back with the cheat code “LAWYERUP”.
Of course, the Grand Theft Auto series is not complete without the various vehicles that the player can “acquire” throughout the game. But sometimes, searching for one particular type of vehicle can take forever, especially the rarer ones. For those people who are impatient or lazy, the cheat codes “BANDIT”, “BUZZOFF”, “COMET”, “BARNSTORM”, and many others are very much appreciated. These codes will spawn various vehicles ranging from a BMX bicycle to a stunt plane.
For those gamers out there who prefer something else other than mindless carnage, then perhaps the Director’s Mode that is accessible with the cheat code “JRTALENT” is for you. In this mode, you can live your dreams of being a movie director by making short video clips using the game’s engine. It also allows you to choose to play as any NPC within the game. This will allow you to create fun and outlandish scenarios.
There are also cheat codes for those gamers who simply want to have a few cheap laughs. For an example, the cheat code “LIQUOR” will turn your character drunk, complete with a hilarious drunken running animation, turning your badass hardened criminal into a slightly less badass hardened criminal.
Another cheat code, “FLOATER,” will lower the normal gravity of the game. This will make it as if the game was set on the Moon. Stunts that were normally impossible in the normal gravity of the game will be completely possible. This makes it the perfect cheat code for those who love parkour and vehicular stunts. As a bonus, it is always amusing to see the hilariously cartoonish rag-doll physics that this cheat code causes.
Other amusing cheat codes include the cheat codes: “INCENDIARY” which will set all your bullets on fire, perfect for those who want their bullets with a little more “fire” power; “HOTHANDS” which will make all your punches extra explosive; and “SNOWDAY” which will make the tires of all vehicles extra slippery, perfect for those hilarious chain car crashes.
With a little bit of creativity, these cheat codes can be used in hilarious and exciting ways to add to the fun and charm of the Grand Theft Auto series.
