"Grand Theft Auto IV" Cheat Codes for the PC

Phone in these cheat codes to improve GTA 4 gameplay.

Grand Theft Auto IV
Rockstar Games / Take-Two Interactive

"Grand Theft Auto IV" is an open-world action game released for the PC in 2008. It is the ninth title in the GTA series, and it is set in fictional Liberty City, which is loosely based on New York City.

This action-adventure game is played from a third-person perspective as you complete missions with set objectives to advance in the game. Players navigate Liberty City either by foot or by vehicle, which offers a first-person perspective. Up to 32 players can roam the city and participate in gameplay while the game is in multiplayer mode. During the single-player mode, players play as Niko Bellic, an immigrant and war veteran.

PC Advantage Over Game Console Versions of 'GTA 4'

The PC version of the game has a replay feature that the Xbox and PlayStation consoles lack. When you execute a particularly tricky series of moves successfully, you can save about 30 seconds of the action to your hard drive by hitting F2 on your PC keyboard. Then, the series is available for use with the integrated replay editor.

For example, if you want the same series of moves each time you encounter a certain situation, press F2 while you make them. Later, you can recall the moves and use them to advance in the game.

Cheat Codes for 'Grand Theft Auto IV'

Another way to advance in the game is to use cheat codes. Cheat Codes for "Grand Theft Auto IV" are entered during gameplay by dialing a number on Niko Bellic's cell phone to activate the desired cheat. Once dialed, the number stays on Bellic's cellphone for future use. Bellic also uses his smartphone to start activities, contact friends, and launch the online multiplay mode.

Warning: Use these GTA cheats at your own risk! Some of the cheats listed in the table below might prevent achievements, so you should think twice about saving your game after using them. Be sure to read the small print below the table for some specific information about that.

Bonus Hints for 'GTA IV'

Cheat codes will only get you so far. Below are some helpful tips for GTA IV that can put you ahead.

  • To start a car that won't start, get in the car and take out your phone. Type a number in the phone and press talk. Then, push the gas and the car will start.
  • To get fire trucks in GTA IV, go to the parking lot at the hookers strip club. Exit the parking lot and turn left. Take the last right near the end of the road. Go to the fire station you see and get the fire trucks there.
  • Find money by stealing a bank truck when you see one. Blow it up to make money fly everywhere, but don't get too close or you will be burned. Also, make sure to move quickly to gather the money because it disappears when the fire goes out.
