GTA Vice City Xbox Cheats

A great way to get extra hours of fun out of Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto Vice City (including the GTA: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition) is by using cheats. This is very easy to pull off on your Xbox (either the Xbox Series S|X, Xbox One, Xbox 360, or the original console console) and our guide will teach you how. When using the cheats below, just remember to select the code that corresponds to the version of GTA Vice City that you have - either the original version, or the "definitive edition" included as part of GTA: The Trilogy.

Vice City Cheats for Xbox
Don't bring a knife to a tank and helicopter fight!
  1. Make A New Save

    You need to make a fresh save of your game, with the emphasis on "fresh". This is because all Achievements are disabled when you use cheat codes, and some cheats are also irreversible, so you need a clean save point to return to.

  2. Select your Cheats

    There are many cheats to choose from, all with various different effects. To find the codes, take a look at our list.

  3. Press the Buttons

    To activate a cheat, enter the required button combination on your controller without pausing the game. Tommy might jump around on your screen, but that's OK! The cheat button combinations differ between the original and GTA Trilogy versions of GTA: Vice City, so select the correct code accordingly.

  4. Successful Activation

    If you see a small pop-up it means you've successfully activated the cheat. Congratulations!
