GTA 4 Cheats

GTA 4 Cheats


Grand Theft Auto IV features 17 cheats for all 3 platforms on which it was released back in 2008 (PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows).

How activate a cheat in GTA IV?

  1. ​Choose a cheat from the list below;
  2. ​Bring up Niko's cellphone by double-pressing the "UP" button;
  3. Dial the cheat number using your keyboard (Windows) or D-Pad (PS3 & Xbox 360).

Once you activate a cheat, it will automatically save itself in your cellphone under a new menu called "Cheats". When you want to reactivate a cheat you used in the past, you can easily do that from that menu without even needing to remember the number. What can be better than this? 🙂

Cheats & Achievements

Even though using cheats in GTA 4 doesn't affect the game story and definitely won't  prevent you from completing any mission, some of them will actually block a few achievements/ trophies. Here is the full list of the achievements that can be affected by cheats: 

  • ​Finish Him - Complete 10 melee counters in 4 minutes
  • Walk Free - Lose a 4-star wanted rating by outrunning the cops
  • One Man Army - Survive 5 minutes on 6-star wanted level
  • Cleaned The Mean Streets - Capture 20 criminals through the police computer

Now, these achievements aren't actually very important. Most people don't even know they exist. However, if you are one of those people who want's to have everything perfect, than what I would recommend you to do is to try and complete those 4 achievements first and then you will be free to use any cheats without worrying about this.
