The first cheat for Grand Theft Auto 5 has been found! Rockstar has decided to return to the days of GTA: San Andreas and use button combinations in order to activate them. This is as opposed to the cheat system used in Grand Theft Auto IV (cell phone) and some of the other methods we guessed might be possible in this article (most notably “the cheats wheel”). Hopefully it means we’ll also get a wider range of cheats like those found in GTA: SA.
So what cheat has been found? It’s a vehicle spawn cheat for the Buzzard helicopter (pic above) and the button combinations for the PS3 and Xbox 360 are as follows:
- PS3: Circle, Circle, L1, Circle, Circle, Circle, L1, L2, R1, Triangle, Circle, Triangle
- Xbox 360: B, B, LB, B, B, B, LB, LT, RB, Y, B, Y
As you’d expect, it is not possible to earn Achievements or Trophies once cheats are activated. The following message pops up once you enter one:
Cheats have been activated. Achievements will not be awarded for the duration of this session.
We should also mention that there does not appear to be a way to save the cheats once you’ve first entered the correct combination (like into a cell phone or some sort of pause menu). This means that the cheats must be manually entered each and every time.
Oh, and a quick tip – if you need to translate a cheat code from the Xbox 360 to PS3, or vice-versa, just swap the buttons as follows:
|Xbox 360 Button||PS3 Button|
