GTA 3 Cheats On PC & Rockstar Launcher

Grand Theft Auto 3 for PC (including the Rockstar Launcher version) contains a range of cheats which players can use to spice up their gameplay or if they need help getting past a particularly tough mission. Using cheat codes in the game is easy and this guide will show you exactly how to do it.

Using GTA 3 cheats on a PC
Big head + rocket launcher = FUN
  1. Save The Game

    Due to it being impossible to deactivate some cheats, and their use also stopping you from earning any Achievements, it's important to have a clean save point to return to later.

  2. Select the Cheats

    With the massive amount of cheats that Rockstar Games decided to include in GTA 3 it's understandable if you have a hard time choosing. Pick the cheats you want to use from our list.

  3. Enter Your Codes

    To activate the cheat all you need to do is type in the relevant phrase. Do this during gameplay and without pausing the game.

  4. Cheat Activated

    If you followed the steps that we've outlined so far, you'll see a small pop up on your screen stating that cheats activation has been successful.

Frequently Asked Questions

I want to earn some Trophies, can cheat codes help me?

GTA 3 was first released for PC on May 21, 2002. It was then included in Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition, released on November 11, 2021.

Can I still get Achievements together with using cheats?

No, Achievements are disabled the moment you use cheats, that's why we recommend creating a new save game before activating them.
