  1. Save In A New Slot

    Cheats in GTA 3 can deactivate Trophies when playing on newer consoles, and some of the cheats are actually permanent and cannot be deactivated. For this reason you should create a new save.

  3. Enter the Cheat

    To actually activate your chosen cheat, you'll need to press the relevant buttons in the correct sequence during gameplay, without pausing the game.
