Despite releasing in 2013, GTA V is as popular as it ever has been. The game has overseen multiple generations of consoles and that means that millions of people need cheats. Here’s every big GTA V cheat and how to enter them into your game.
They may seem like an outdated and arbitrary concept in this generation, but cheats are actually as popular as ever – more so with a bonkers sandbox game like Rockstar‘s Grand Theft Auto V.
It’s not quite like the old days where you had to buy a cheat book or get some free ones from that month’s gaming magazine. Now if you want to spawn a rare vehicle, you whack out the phone, drill your question into Google and within seconds you’re making mincemeat of innocent cars.
How to enter them
GTA definitely feels modern in its approach to cheat inputs at least. We take advantage of sophisticated smartphones here to get access to the game’s most fun modifiers.
- Open up your smartphone
- Go to your Contacts
- Go to the keypad

It’s that simple. Now let’s get you those cheats.

How to find Cayo Perico Treasure Chests in GTA Online
Rockstar Games have added Treasure Chests to GTA Online as part of The Cayo Perico Heist expansion, and you can find them daily.
There are daily Treasure Chests hidden in The Cayo Perico Heist update that are worth $15,000 each, and you can find these when logging into GTA Online. Here’s how you can get your hands on them.
The Cayo Perico Heist brought brand new opportunities for earning money when it went live on December 14. The actual payout of the heist is impressive, and there are also other commodities that can earn you some extra cash such as gold bars.
Aside from doing missions and objectives, you can also find Treasure Chests when exploring the island of Cayo Perico before the heist. These are easy to find, and each one you come across contains $15,000.
Cayo Perico Treasure Chests locations
You can find two Treasure Chests daily when logging into GTA Online. One will be lying on the island, while the other can be found just off-shore in the water.
The game will notify you when you’re near one of these with the sound of bells ringing as you get closer to them. Just follow the sound until you see a prompt on-screen that lets you know that it’s time to open up the Treasure Chest.
Here’s how you can find them:
- Head to Cayo Perico to scope out the island
- Take a walk around that spot until you hear bells
- Keep walking in that area until you get an on-screen message
- Open the chest and claim the $15,000!
There are 10 possible locations where the chests can spawn on land, and these change every day. Luckily, YouTuber GTAMen has already compiled all of them on the GTA Online map.
Finding the ones that are underwater works the same way. The only major difficulty that arises is having to come up for air every few seconds after you dive into the ocean. For that reason, you should keep some rebreathers on you.
Just keep swimming towards the sounds of chiming bells until you get the prompt that tells you to open the Treasure Chest. GTAMen also went over all the underwater locations for these in another video.
So far, the Treasure Chests only rotate between these select locations. This might be subject to change later one, but right now you can find them by exploring these areas on the map daily when playing GTA Online.
Be sure to explore Cayo Perico as there are a ton of other fun activities and money-making opportunities at your disposal. GTA V’s first-ever map expansion has a lot of exciting content to offer, and it’s up to you to try it out.

GTA 6 rumors grow after players find strange files in RDR2
Some strange files in Red Dead Redemption 2 are pointing towards GTA 6 and it’s only fueling rumors even more.
Evidence has been found in Red Dead Redemption 2 that would suggest that GTA 6 is in development. Or that we have more information on the upcoming GTA 5 re-release that’s heading to next-gen.
It’s fair to say that information about GTA 6 is about as barebones as can be. Fans are still currently in limbo as to whether or not the game even exists. It’s currently Rockstar’s own Schrodinger’s Cat.
With no concrete information to sink their teeth into, rabid fans are always scouring GTA 5, GTA Online, and Red Dead Redemption 2 for even the tiniest hints of new information. Well, some have been discovered. A file that does not fit RDR2 has been tracked down and it’s very interesting.
GTA 6 hinted at with RDR2 hidden file
A slew of rumors is all GTA fans have had to shout about in the last few years as GTA 5 continues to dominate the entertainment landscape as the most profitable piece of media ever created.
The errant file was found and reported to the official GTA Forum by user rollschuh2282. Tucked away in the RDR2′ files are items pertaining to parachutes. Now, it doesn’t take a genius to work out that this isn’t something designed for RDR2. These items have probably accidentally found their way into the files.
The only question that remains, is this a component of GTA 6? Or something to do with the PS5 and Xbox Series X port of GTA 5?
The interesting part is that these files don’t exist in GTA 5 in any way shape or form. So either this is being added specifically to the next-gen version, or something else entirely.
As with all of these things GTA-related, we can only speculate for the time being. If anything does become a bit more clear, we’ll let you know.

Thanks to our usual GTA Online leaker TezFunz2, we have information on new vehicles and discounts in this week’s update & patch notes.
GTA Online January 14 patch notes
Manchez Scout added to GTA Online
Originally announced during the Cayo Perico expansion, the Manchez Scout has now been added to the game.
Described as a military off-road motorcycle, the Manchez Scout is a stylish and nimble beast. If you want to take a ride on it, it’ll set you back $225,000.
GTA Online Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel Reward
You’re going to want to make sure you don’t miss out on the Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel as this week’s prize is simply fabulous. Rockstar has generously put the Toreador up for grabs.
The Toreador is worth a staggering $3,660,000 and here’s the official description of the vehicle:
“No land? No problem. With Pegassi’s submersible, booster-fitted sports car, taking your life and all its problems out to sea has never been faster. Nothing is as therapeutic for the soul as the endless blue of the Pacific Ocean and firing off a few torpedoes at passersby.“

There is an opportunity for 2x GTA$ & RP on Survivals this week. As usual, we have information on the new races and time trials too.
- Premium Race: Art to Art
- Time Trial: Route 68
- RC Time Trial: Cemetery
There are the usual login rewards to claim as players can scoop the following:
- Shark Camo livery for Toreador
- Pegassi Aged Tee
Major GTA Online Discounts
One of the biggest additions to GTA Online recently has been the Kosatka submarine that came as part of the Cayo Perico update. The costly submarine is fun but requires a lot of cash to upgrade.
Here are some new discounts for it to ease that burden:
- Sonar Station ($900,000)
- Guided Missiles ($1,425,000)
- Moon Pool Vehicles (S>$1,361,250 – A>$1,158,750)

- Coquette D10 ($1,057,000)
25% Off Vehicles
- Alkonost ($3,262,500)
- Stealth Annihilator ($2,902,500)
That should just about cover everything in this bumper update to begin the new year. We are surely counting down the weeks until we get GTA 6 details so keep enjoying GTA Online in the meantime.
