In Grand Theft Auto IV, The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony, cheats are activated by bringing up the phone number pad and typing a cheat phone number into Niko Bellic's, Johnny Klebitz's, or Luis Fernando Lopez's mobile phone. After this has been done once, the cheat will be stored in the phone, and accessible from the "Cheats" menu there. Note that the PlayStation 3 version of GTA IV needs to be updated in order for trophies to work.

Entering some of these cheats in the game will disable certain achievements/trophies only on the active save file; it does not prevent the player from achieving 100% completion. If achievements are blocked, they can be unblocked by loading a save file without blocked achievements. Cheats may have undesired effects on gameplay and can introduce glitches.

The cheats from GTA IV work in the episodic content, but the cheats from the latter do not work in the former.

Stevie's Car Theft Trick

If the player has completed all 30 of Stevie's Car theft missions, Stevie will pay cash for almost any car delivered to his garage. Using vehicle-spawning cheats, the player can exploit this arrangement for as much money as they want. Below are the prices of the (eligible) spawnable vehicles; keep in mind that this table is presuming that the car is just spawned and has not taken any damage. The FIB Buffalo and the Jetmax are unsellable spawn vehicles and the Annihilator cannot fit in Stevie's garage.

Vehicle Price
Cognoscenti $9,000
Comet $6,000
Super GT $11,000
NRG 900 $2,500
Sanchez $1,200
Turismo $10,500

Most cars have a low sale value, however driving gently into a wall (enough to scrape the paint) will dramatically improve the value of certain cars. For example, when the Cognoscenti is spawned and sold in perfect condition, Niko will get $9,000; scraping the car against the wall of the garage while entering will change the payout to the full retail value, $10,500 (some have reported the value further increasing to $10,800). Presumably this is a game bug, possibly the game lowering the base value of the cars for reselling, but uses the full price to decide the value when broken in the garage.


  • Another cheat to get full health, armor, ammo and repair one's vehicle can be used if the player is driving the Mr. Tasty ice-cream truck; cycle through the ice cream jingles (using the horn button) until the GTA IV theme plays, then call the ZiT Service (948-555-0100). Although not documented as such, this will block the achievement/trophy 'Finish Him.'
  • Activating the Wanted Level Down code is a useful way to obtain the rarer law enforcement vehicles such as the Enforcer, NOOSE Cruiser or NOOSE Patriot. This should be done by first leaving any restricted area the player may be in while ensuring that the desired vehicle is nearby. Activate the cheat. Once you have no wanted level, do something non-violent that will get law enforcement to exit their vehicles, such as firing a weapon at the ground, an act that will raise the level to one star. As they attempt to apprehend you on foot, walk towards the chosen vehicle, get in, and drive away.
  • Note that outrunning cops who try to stop the player skipping islands when Niko is in a spawned Jetmax will NOT give the Walk Free achievement but can be obtained later on in the same save file after being wasted.
  • When riding around in a cab, entering and using cheats do not block achievements for the Xbox 360.
  • Inputting the cheats for GTA IV on to GTA V's mobile phone will cause the cheat to fail to load and make odd noises; the FIB Buffalo cheat will cause alien-like beeps, while others may make the dial-up modem noise.
  • Inputting a vehicle cheat near an NPC or a vehicle may cause them to despawn. Bikes seem to only be able to only be able to make NPCs and other bikes disappear, but any other cheat vehicle should cause all vehicles to despawn.
    • If a vehicle is being driven by law enforcement while the player has a wanted level then a cheat vehicle cannot make it vanish, but strangely this does not apply to the actual police when outside a vehicle.
