Rediscover GTA 5
For an over three year old game, GTA 5 is doing pretty well for itself. If you’re a gamer and reading this right now, chances are you’ve bought the game at least once, and might very well still be hooked on the Online mode. However, if you’re a player who finished the story and burned out on multiplayer and has moved on since, or are still going strong in Online, it might be worth taking another look at the game’s single player mode – augmented with cheats – because these cheats are more than just ways of gaining the upper hand when in a tough spot.
We mention that there’s a good chance that you’ve played the game since news recently broke that GTA 5 has shipped 75 million physical copies to retailers around the globe. Now, this doesn’t exactly mean that 75 million copies of the game have been bought by customers, but keep in mind the burgeoning digital market for video games, the sales of which are not accounted for by that figure. Not only this, but just in 2017 GTA 5 has enjoyed the number one spot on the game sales charts three times. In spite of its age, the game is selling the most now since launch.
So yeah, there are plenty of new players flooding the game, but the thing is, most come to play because of Online. That said, if you prefer solo play but have seen everything there is to see and maxed out all of the content in the game, there’s still reason to come back for more. GTA 5 cheats amount to more than just ways of getting an unfair boost. Instead, many of the cheat codes serve as a way of adding to your gameplay experience in ways that wouldn’t be strictly speaking lore-friendly otherwise, hence being cheats and not regular game mechanics.
You can mix and match the cheats to your liking, allowing you to create your own fun. If you want to turn GTA 5 into a superhero game, you can activate super-jump, fast run, fast swim and invincibility, and top it off with explosive melee attacks if you’re more looking for a super villain experience. Prefer deadly mercenary? Explosive or incendiary ammo, as well as the give all weapons cheat will be right up your alley. Looking to unwind with a bit of wanton destruction? The previous set-up coupled with invincibility and raise wanted level will allow you to let off some steam.
If you’re more of a creator rather than a destroyer, you can set up perfect shots for photos or scenes for fan videos using director mode, the various vehicle spawning cheats as well as the change weather cheat, which allows you to cycle through 8 presets at a whim, including the snowy preset which never occurs naturally. You can toss a fun twist into the game’s driving mechanics with the slippery cars cheat that removes pretty much all traction from all vehicles, and couple it with the moon gravity cheat which will make you a lot less attached to the ground.
The possibilities are thousandfold, considering there is a pretty large library of cheats available for the game (check out this list of Xbox One cheats as an example), and you can activate as many concurrently as you wish. These cheat codes add much to the game’s replayability and longevity, allowing players to mold their gaming experience to their will in ways that the regular mechanics don’t allow. Whether you want some wacky video fodder or just a bit of over-the-top entertainment, using cheats in GTA 5 will give you just that.
