The GTA San Andreas cheats are a huge set of codes compatible with the Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, and PC editions of the game, letting you make significant changes both to CJ and the world around him. You can stock up on cash, health, and armor in an instant, gain maximum respect to assemble a whole gang around you on your travels, and master every weapon in the 'hood without having to pull a single trigger. There are also options to keep the cops off your scent, spawn in a whole motorcade of assorted vehicles, or turn a majority of pedestrians into the King of Rock and Roll if you fancy it.

There are a total of around 90 Grand Theft Auto San Andreas cheats available, which are accessed by pressing a string of buttons on your controller or typing a phrase on your keyboard, and most players won't be able to remember more than a couple of those at a time. That's why we're here to help, by providing a complete list of GTA San Andreas cheats split into relevant sections, so you can quickly locate the codes you need to start building your OG reputation.

Note that due to technical limitations and creative decisions, not all of the GTA San Andreas cheats have made it into the latest GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition releases, and where this is the case we've marked the codes accordingly. Also due to the way the Definitive Edition was ported, the triggers used for the Xbox cheat codes are swapped around from their original configurations.

How to use GTA San Andreas cheats

Before you start using any GTA San Andreas cheats, you should make a save and ensure you keep it safe to return to later. This is because some of the effects they produce can become permanent, which may make further progress through the story difficult or even impossible without starting again from scratch. If you're on a recent version of the game then using Grand Theft Auto San Andreas cheats will also disable trophies or achievements, which obviously isn't desirable if you want to complete your collection of awards.

Entering GTA San Andreas cheats on consoles involves following the series of button presses listed, during regular gameplay and not while in a cutscene or paused. Bear in mind that these buttons will still perform their assigned actions while entering Grand Theft Auto San Andreas cheats, so you might want to enter them at a distance from pedestrians and vehicles just in case. To cheat on PC you just have to type in either the phrase or short code using your keyboard, again when not paused or during a cutscene, though you may find the phrases easier to memorize. Thing are a bit more flexible with the Definitive Edition, so you should be able to enter most controller codes on the PC version, and type in the phrases on a console if you have a suitable keyboard attached.
