GTA 3 Cheats Without Cheat Codes

There are some other ways to get some of the benefits of cheating but without the codes.

For example, when you collect over 9999 rounds of ammo for a weapon, you automatically get unlimited ammo. Just reload when you need to and never worry about running out.

If you overload a garage, you can park more than the stated two vehicles.

In fact, you can fit six small cars into the garage if when you've got two in there already, you jam one of them under the garage door so it won't close. Then, drive the others in there to get all six to stay in the garage.

Something else you can do to up your health rating by 125 is to grab a fancy car and drive to the Red Light District to pick up a prostitute. If you take her to an alley somewhere and wait, you'll eventually get some more health rating points.
