Are you looking for cheat codes to use in GTA 4? We can provide them and explain how using cheat codes in Grand Theft Auto 4 helps Niko Bellic’s escapades become even more thrilling. We also covered the differences compared to cheat codes for the previous iteration, GTA 3, but most cheat effects are making a comeback. You can still go on a rampage with a full weapon arsenal and refill your health points and armor. These cheats also let you spawn vehicles, from bicycles and sports cars to helicopters and buoyant vehicles if you prefer air or water travel. Let’s help you learn which GTA 4 cheats exist and how to activate them.
How to use cheats in GTA 4
Follow these steps to use cheats in Grand Theft Auto 4 (GTA 4):
- Join the game to the point where you see Niko and can move or drive.
- Open your cell phone’s display. This requires you to press the Up arrow on PC, or push the D-pad to Up on your controller for PlayStation and Xbox.
- Press Up on the keyboard or D-pad to bring up the dial pad for the mobile phone.
- Enter the phone number for the cheat you want to activate based on the platform: PC, Xbox, or PlayStation.
- Call the number and wait for the cheat code effect. GTA 4 cheats have a single immediate effect and don’t need to be deactivated, but can be reactivated.
- Once you enter a cheat, the game will save it on the cellular phone. You can go to Cheats in the phone menu below Options to quickly access previously activated cheats.
Note. Don’t be alarmed if the code you entered changes after the call. For instance, dialing 267-555-0150 to remove the wanted level will translate to COP-555-0100 on the phone screen.
Does entering GTA 4 cheat codes disable achievements?
Yes, entering some cheat codes in GTA 4 will disable certain achievements and trophies for the current game session. Here are examples of types of GTA 4 cheats and which achievements and trophies will be turned off:
- Activating “health and armor” modifying cheats will block achievements such as:
- One Man Army
- Walk Free
- Cleaned the Mean Streets
- Finish Him
- Using “weapon” cheats will disable:
- Walk Free
- One Man Army
- Spawning helicopters such as Buzzard and Annihilator will turn off these achievements:
- One Man Army
- Walk Free
Can I use the rest of Grand Theft Auto 4 cheat codes without blocking achievements?
Yes, you can use the remainder of GTA 4 cheats without preventing Niko Bellic from earning other achievements. It’s important to note that the block only applies to the current session, meaning you can exit GTA 4 and start it again to enable earning those achievements, but cheat effects may go away.
Every time you enter a cheat that deactivates an achievement, the game will notify you of the consequences and ask you to confirm your decision. Also, we suggest saving a game before you activate a cheat to have a cheat-free game save in case reloading alone doesn’t work.
