The Ultimate Grand Theft Auto V Tips and Tricks List

Looking for a way to own Los Santos? Look no further.

Grand Theft Auto V
Rockstar Games

The city of Los Santos can be a daunting one. Grand Theft Auto V itself can be a frustrating game too, if you don't quite know what you're doing. Well, to be fair it's frustrating if you do know what you're doing, too. Let's just get real: Grand Theft Auto V can be ridiculously hard sometimes. 

Luckily, you've come to the right place. We can get you outfitted with some of the funniest, useful, and all-around weird cheat codes out there. Keep in mind, however, that these codes are strictly for PlayStation 4 users and will not work on other consoles. 

The name of the cheat is bolded to the left, and it describes what the cheat will do. The cheat follows and is written in reference to a typical PlayStation 4 controller. You need to enter the cheats while in the main game and not an online game, as many of them will not carry over to the online game. They're powerful, but not that powerful! 

  • Melee attacks become explosive: Right, Left, X, Triangle, R1, Circle, Circle, Circle, L2

If you're entering these codes it's important to remember that you won't be getting trophies out of the game afterward. If you want to bolster that trophy level, you're going to have to conquer Los Santos all by your lonesome. But we've got your back there, too. No reason to be afraid! 

Be on the lookout for some special Grand Theft Auto V content as the game adds several new events, changes and modifications to the base game, and more. It's still being supported by Rockstar, so there's a bevy of new information coming soon.
