First Cheat Code for GTA 5 Discovered!

Update: More cheats found! Check them out for PS4 | Xbox One | PC | Xbox 360 | PS3

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.

Stay tuned for more GTA V cheat codes from GTA BOOM! You can see all the Xbox 360 cheats we have here, and all the PS3 cheats here.

Update: we’ve also got all the Xbox One cheats here, cheats for PS4 here, and the PC cheats right here.

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:

  1. (awesome cheat) spawn a car like the james bond Aston Martin DB5 shoot missiles out of the headlights and a minigun pops out of the hood of the car can be switched to drive or fly mode.

      1. You have to press two or three times as many buttons in the PS2 era GTA’s. I understand if you didn’t care for that style, but your point makes no sense.

    1. I like both. On one side, nostalgia wants the old school manual input but on the other, quick usage through the phone. I’m going to go with the phone as well.
