Grand Theft Auto 5 is a fun video game on its own, but we all know cheat codes can add some excitement to the already enjoyable open-world game. Whether it be making your character run at super sonic speed or shoot flaming bullets, Rockstar has included an arsenal of awesome GTA 5 cheats for the PlayStation 3. You can check out an expansive list of GTA 5 Cheats PS3 below!

How to use cheat codes in GTA V for the PS3

It’s simple to activate a cheat code in Grand Theft Auto V for the PlayStation 3. All you have to do is enter the combination while playing the game or during a pause screen to activate it. If a code was entered correctly, a confirmation will appear above the map.

Keep in mind that cheat codes won’t work during a mission. So, if you do start a mission, all entered cheat codes will be disabled. It’s also worth noting that entering a cheat code will disable the ability to earn PlayStation 3 trophies on the current save. That said, if you want to try out a few cheat codes, it’s best to create a new save or create a quick save such that you can revert.

Either way, cheats still add a lot of fun to the game when you want to spend a little while missing around. Here are some of our favorite GTA 5 cheats:

Unfortunately, Grand Theft Auto V doesn’t have any explicit money cheats. While Rockstar hasn’t officially commented on it, this is largely because a money cheat in the game would negatively affect other players with respects to the game’s stock market.  That said, check out our Xbox 360 GTA 5 cheats, which details a way to make unlimited money.
