In 2004, Rockstar released Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for several consoles, including the Xbox 360. If you’re playing the open-world game on your Xbox 360, you might be wondering if there are any cheat codes you can use in the game. Many games have cheat codes, a series of buttons the player can press to trigger a specific effect, whether it is advantageous or just for fun, and San Andreas is no exception. In fact, it has many cheat codes, with a variety of different effects.
For all of these cheats, you can enter the string of commands directly from gameplay, and you should use the directional pad when the code contains a directional command, to make sure you input it accurately. In fact, it’s recommended that you slide your fingers from one D-pad command to the next, to keep them together in a smooth flow. You must enter the code quickly, as well, to make sure the game recognizes it as a code and not a coincidental set of button presses. If you are having trouble getting a code to work, just check it and make sure you are entering it correctly. It will work. Keep in mind that cheats do not carry across gameplay sessions, so if you quit your game and start playing again, you will need to re-enter the codes to keep them active.
You can achieve all sorts of effects through cheat codes in San Andreas. For example, one code will instantly grant you $250,000, full health, and full armor. That’s the sort of thing that could come quite in handy if you’re in danger of dying or if you just need some quick cash to buy something in the game. In a similar light, there are codes that will give you infinite ammunition, infinite health, and infinite air so you can swim without fear of drowning. You can use codes to maximize your stats, maximize the stats of your vehicles, unlock new vehicles, increase or decrease your wanted level, and much more.
You can spawn all sorts of things: hunters, hydras, jetpacks, motorbikes, and more!
If you’re more interested in cheats that are there just for fun, don’t worry-there are plenty of those, too. You can input a code to make traffic aggressive, and another one to turn all vehicles invisible. If invisible cars aren’t cool enough for you, you can enter a different code to give cars the ability to fly. You can set the city so that it’s always midnight or speed up the in-game clock. Maybe the weather is ruining the atmosphere for you. Fill the sky with clouds, trigger a storm, or cover the city in a blanket of eerie fog, all by entering the correct codes.
For added excitement, you can send the game into Chaos mode or Adrenaline mode. If those don’t bring quite the sort of excitement you had in mind, you can always try the codes for Yakuza mode or Killer Clown mode. Then again, if you would like something to add a little more flavor to the people around you without it involving murderous clowns chasing you down, check out the cheat code that turns pedestrians into Elvis.
You can even combine cheats. Want to drive your car underwater? Enter the cheats for infinite health, infinite air, and the flying car, and head into the water.
Of course, there are also cheats that don’t involve codes. Inventive players have discovered ways to get their characters inside of Area 51, quickly earn lots of in-game money, get into Liberty City, and trigger a ghost car, along with other interesting glitches here and there. There are even a couple of fun Easter eggs that have been found. Whatever you decide to do with your knowledge of cheats, whether you want to give yourself an advantage, find new places to explore, or just have fun with a variety of wild effects, there are enough codes for GTA San Andreas to keep you occupied for a long time.
