All GTA 3 cheats for health, weapons, cars, and more

Breaking the law

GTA 3 cheats might not be as plentiful as those for its younger counterparts, but you can still make Liberty City your own in more than a dozen ways.

The range of cheats lets you control the weather, NPCs, and, of course, your own character. Some of them even let you cheese the game to get more difficult-to-acquire achievements.

All GTA 3 cheats

As with the Vice City and San Andreas cheats, you’ll want to be a bit careful in how you handle these, assuming Rockstar hasn’t changed the games’ foundations.

Entering a cheat in the original GTA 3 and its ports carried a risk of corrupting your save data, and there’s usually no way to undo the cheat. That may be fixed in the remasters, but it’s worth keeping a separate save file you can reload just in case things go wrong.

These are all the inputs you can use to manipulate the game.

You'll need more than a set of GTA 3 cheats or the fastest car to get across the Callahan Bridge early, though it's worth the effort. Some of the game's best weapons are found on Staunton Island.
