Cheats in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
|Be warned that using cheats may cause unintended side effects, disable achievements, and/or hinder game progress.|
Use cheats at your own risk.
Cheats in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas are similar to those of its predecessors, requiring input of a series of controller button commands or a keyboard. When a cheat code is successfully entered, a "Cheat Activated" message will appear on the upper left corner of the screen to confirm the cheat has been entered. The following cheat codes must be entered during gameplay. Entering cheat codes on the pause menu will not activate the cheat unlike its predecessors.
Note that the PlayStation 2 and Xbox require the use of the D-Pad (up, down, left, right), (NOTE: this is not the analog stick) for directional input. For the PlayStation 3 port of the game, the triggers that need to be pressed must be pressed in the opposite way. For example, where one would normally press / in a cheat, they must press /. (e.g. would be the correct input for the PS3 port of the game of the "Unlimited Ammo" cheat.)
The pedestrian hate and riot cheats are permanent and cannot be reversed if the game is saved while the cheat is active. These pedestrian-related cheats can hinder progress during missions.
On PC, due to the nature of the cheats requiring a hash code rather than just simply the input itself, it may result in hash collisions, thereby making the cheats enterable using a number of combinations, even by simply pressing the movement keys (WASD). The * denotes the intended cheat code found on the Android port of the game – other alternative cheat code combinations (such as HESOYAM and AEZAKMI) – were simply found by using a dictionary and were later widely accepted as the prime cheat code (as cheat codes were not explicitly given by Rockstar Games themselves in any guide nor the game executable contained them).
|A, A, X, Rt, Lt, A, Down, Left, A|
|Armor, health and $, in money (also repairs vehicles occupied by the player and increases the Criminal Rating to 40) |
Note: Enabling the "Health and Armor" cheat during the bike chase of Just Business and during shooting from the car in End of the Line will fail the mission, destroying the bike/Feltzer (End of the Line), and CJ will eventually be Wasted.
