Cheat Codes

In GTA IV cheats are activated via using the mobile phone. Try entering any of the following codes after Roman has given you his old mobile phone. This happens pretty early in the game so you don't have to wait long before you can enter the cheat codes. Once you have the phone you can enter them as often as you like.

Okay, first get out your mobile phone and press 'Up' to raise the phone higher and reveal the complete keypad. Then use your controller to select the set of numbers according to which cheat you want to use, after you have entered the code the cursor moves to the dial button, just press 'Up' again and if successful you will see a message 'Cheat Activated' on the screen. When a code has been entered correctly, a new 'Cheats' menu option becomes available on your pho..

Unlock Ski Mask

If you plan on doing a robbery and don't want to be recognised then why not unlock the ski mask first by completing the 'Three Leaf Clover' mission. When the mission has been completed the ski mask will be available anytime as a hat in your wardrobe.

Carbine Rifle

If you want some extra fire power then take a trip to Happiness Island where this weapon is located. To get there you'll need a helicopter or boat but if those options aren't available you can always swim. At the island go inside the first door of the 'Statue of Happiness' and kill the security guard on watch there who has the carbine rifle.

Easy Money (Not ATM Glitch)

This is so simple, and yet there are no posts about this. OK, you guys are all probably fed up of the posts and reposts about killing people at the ATM, here is my solution to making a lot more money than that a million times faster. To do this you need to have unlocked Stevie's garage and have delivered him all 30 cars (to get the locations go to the unnoficial guide on this site). Once you deliver him all 30, he will send you a text saying that you can take him a car and he will pay cash for it. You get about a third of the original price, so a Turismo gets you $11,000. There is a cheat to spawn a Turismo, and he accepts spawned cars. I made $1,000,000 in fifteen minutes with this method. Enjoy.

Free Shotgun Shells

If you're out of shotgun shells you can automatically get 5 more by entering a police cruiser. Unofficial Guide to GTA 4

... Grand Theft Auto 4 Guide

ATM Cash Glitch

Find an ATM then block off traffic in the road leading to it so cars cannot pass. Then wait for someone to use the ATM, kill them then take the money they drop. It's essential at this point that you have done a good job at blocking the roads so the ambulance can not take away the corpse.

With that said... Run a bit away from your victim and go back again and the same money should be available to pick up again... If anyone is using the ATM when you go back you can kill them too and each time you return their cash will have respawned too.

Faustin's Missions

After you meet Faustin, complete ALL 100% of his missions, before attempting Dimitri's missions, as Dimitri has you kill off his best buddy Faustin. Therefore making him unable to give you his final lot of missions and you'll be unable to get 100% completion of the game overall.

Cheers to Superblobby on the SuperCheats forums for that one.

Lots of money

around liberty city you can find armoured trucks that deliver money, the only way to get the money from inside is to steal the vehicle and park it somewhere then chuck a grenade underneath it and watch the money sprinkle out. they can be found mostly on the industrial island and once i had loads by going on the northern island killing myself by (somehow because im sick ) having fun, i kept waking up outside the hospital and after a few deaths every time i woke there were trucks there , but this would be a waste of time because you pauy for being revived and then get the money back so dont try....


You can view a load of Liberty City maps as part of the game. All you have to do is us a PC with an internet connection... Like in an internet cafe then use it to go to this website:

Here you get access to maps with hidden items, weapons, friend locations, pigeons and jumps.

Get a Statue of Liberty T-Shirt

On the 2nd level of the Statue of Liberty there will be a door which you have to walk through because it doesn't swing open. When you have gone through it the game will load for a moment and you will come out wearing a new t-shirt which will have the image of the Statue of Liberty on it.

Lots of money

This is not a cheat, go to the internet cafe and oppersit

The conter is an other one go behind it and it says, Press L1 to brake the cash redister this only works in an internet cafe or Modo the clothing bot make sure you have a car outside as this attracts cops hope you get a GOOD amount of money!


To get a free shotgun you have to go to the triangle club and near the exit there is a door that says private staff only if you go into that room/door you will see a shotgun leaning on the wall

Easy money!!!!!!!!!!

If your driving around any part of any three islands and you see an armored truck if you have a rocket launcher shoot the armored truck and watch the money spread!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just dial the nuber on your cellphone

Invisible Man

How you turn invisible is be at the hospital close to the police department. Get a sniper rifle out and go to the stairs of the police department. You should se a burger guy on the street. Get the scope out and look to the right and you should see a propane tank shoot it and when you get out of the scope, you will be invisible

Stevie Knows

When you're done with all 30 car thefts, Spawn a Turismo every time. After every Turismo, You get $11,000! WARNING! He does not accept Police cars, Fire trucks [they are too big and are 911 services], Hospital cars, And taxis [exept Romans taxi]. All of those cars are service cars.

Secret car.

There is a secret sports car on the 3rd island on gta4 it is at the old mansion, behind the 2 garages(enjoy!).

Great Cars

For anyone who knows anything about the GTA4 game, you should know that there are a ton of great cars in this game. One of the best would be the Infernus. As you may know, you can only get one through the game, as others are so rare that they're near impossible to find. A trick to get more beautiful cars such as the Infernus is to actually drive it near any ones of your safe houses. This GREATLY increases the chances of randomly running into other Infernus'. The best places to look, aside from the streets, are in parking lots. If the parking lots are big enough, the same car you're driving is almost assured.

Hidden Heart

When you have unlocked happiness island steal a helicopter from Helitours and fly to the top untill you get to the first square platform. Jump out of the Helicopter and then run around the platform untill you see a door that has a plaque on saying do not enter. Walk through the door and there is a ladder, go up it to the top and you will see a heart in chains.

So simple why hasnt it been done before....

Multiplayer, Hangmans Noose...on games were someone jumps into a vehicle and goes to get the helicopter and brings to the jet, why hasnt anyone set up an armored truck at the end of the jet?

Place the truck near the end of the grey ground where the jet is sitting on. That provides cover along with the baggage carts just beyond it. On games with four people, since you can only fit four into a vehicle, need to transport five total, the same person who sets up the truck can grab the motorcycle just around the east corner and high tail it back to the other helis.

Out of all the hours of game play I had yet to see this until I started doing it. Just so simple it's easy. And besides, you get full armor stepping out of the truck too.

Snipe Spot

For this you need a VAN OR DIESEL! First go to the triangle club, next, on the far side of the parking lot there is a building, line the van/truck parrallel and touching the side of the building, now you must climb on top of the vehicle and climb through any of the windows.



During a good few missions in this game, you'll be forced to follow someone in a car without them knowing you're there. It can become difficult to tell exactly how far away you should be. Well, here's a small tip to keep you in just the right spot. Stay 2 car lanes away at the least, and for the most, you'll need to pay attention to your radar. Keep the car you're following right near the edge of your radar.

Dwayne or X

After playing through a good bit of the game, you'll be faced with a moral choice. Kill Playboy X, or Dwayne. If you're trying to do the game without cheats, it's HIGHLY suggested that you kill Playboy X. If you kill Dwayne, you only receive 25,000 dollars, which isn't much at all in the long run. If you kill Playboy X, you get his place, a friend in Dwayne, and backup later on from Dwayne through one simple phone call if you need it. This is a MASSIVE help in tight situations.

All cheats on gta4 (ps3)

Cheat mode

While playing the game, press Up to display Niko's cell phone. Press Up again to access the keypad. Then, enter one of the following codes to activate the corresponding cheat function. Once a code has been entered correctly, a new "Cheats" menu option will be available on your phone, below "Options", where you can access the cheats without having to enter the phone number again. Note: Do not save the game after enabling a code to avoid unforeseen problems. You can usually only spawn one vehicle at a time. Any previously spawned vehicles will disappear. However, if you spawn a vehicle, save the game, and load again, you can spawn another one and your original will not disappear. You must have it in your parking space in front of a safehouse or it will be gone before you h..

Money Truck

Survival fun 2

2) first get the advance weapons get the machine gun then go to the area next to the highway that has 3 stories (sorry it's not specific) then go to any floor (my fav. 3rd) if on 3rd floor there are 2 ladders the cops mainly climb up 1 shoot then with pistol (once you shoot them they let go of the ladder and fall to there death) also you need go use a machine gun or bazooka on the helicopters if you use the machine gun on the helicopter look at the side of the helicopter and the machine gun target will lock on to one guy and when you have killed him he will fall out of the helicopter do the same with the other side

Grand Theft Auto 4 Guide - Pigeon Locations 41-60

"Pigeon (45/200): On top of the building on the northwestern side of the pond. There isn't a way up, so walk along the pond until you are in position to get a good shot at the pigeon with your sniper rifle."


I am correcting this one because there is a way to get on the building by going on from the awning that is facing away from the water. Just jump as you normally would when climbing a wall. Then you are able to pull yourself up and get to the pigeon.

Free Taxi Ride & Free money in the process

First hail a normal taxi, get in it like a normal passenger and select your destination, when you get 2 your destination, pay the fare and then get out and run to the front of the taxi to stop it moving forward, get your pistol or shotgun or uzi or AK-47 out (pistol works best and the ammo is cheaper than the other guns) aim at the taxi drivers head and shoot him (WARNING: the now dead taxi driver might accelarate hard and run you over but wont kill you if you have full health) (if this happens just get up and follow the runaway taxi till it stops, it doesnt go far any way) pull the taxi driver out of the taxi and collect the cash around his body, this cash always covers the fare you just paid and also gives you a bit more, neat hey?

Five shotgun bullets and free police cruiser.

When you find a taxi and a police car nearby each other punch the taxi. If he/she gets out to fight run in front of the police car. Let him/her punch you and the cop(s) will attempt to arrest him/her. Both police should get out. Get in the police car if both cops pursue the driver. You will get five bullets for shotgun and a shotgun if you don't already have one. The worst thing that could happen is having to escape the police.
