GTA 4 Cheats
Unlike other versions of the game, the GTA 4 cheats are the same for all platforms so this page is good for GTA 4 cheats, on Xbox, PlayStation and PC.
At the time of writing (March 2019) GTA 4 is not available on mobile devices. However this may change as we have seen Vice City and San Andreas both re-released on mobile devices.
Entering in the GTA 4 cheats is pretty easy, and they are all done via Niko’s phone! Just tap in and dial the corresponding code during gameplay for the effect that you want and you should get it. A ‘Cheat Activated’ message normally appears if the code has been accepted.
If you are spawning a vehicle, just make sure that you are standing in an area with enough space for it to spawn into. The vehicle should spawn directly in front of Niko.
Another thing to note is that activating some of the GTA 4 cheats will prevent you from completing certain trophies and achievements, these are detailed in the table below. So make sure you save your game before you enter any cheats, then don’t overwrite your non-cheat game save after you have entered the cheats.

Block the streets near an ATM, causing a traffic jam. Then, near the ATM, let someone withdraw money. Once they do, kill that person. The ambulance won’t be able to get through the traffic jam you created. Take the money, head a short distance away from the victim, then return. More money should spawn on the ground near the body. Grab it and then retreat once more. You should be able to repeat this process as often as you like, and you can even kill multiple citizens to make it more effective.
Friendship and Relationship Bonuses
If you are able to improve your friendship or relationship levels with certain characters in the game, then you will get some handy perks in the game. Check the table below to see what friendships and relationships you need to work on to get the corresponding perk. The best way to improve a friendship level with another character in GTA 4 is to hang out with them. Some storyline missions will also help you to improve some friendships too.
You can improve relationships with the girls in the game by going on dates with them and impressing them with your wheels, clothes and type of date.

ATM Cash Machine Glitch
Find an ATM and then block the streets near to it to cause a traffic jam. Hang around the ATM and wait for someone to use it, once they have withdrawn some cash, kill them and take the money. Then move away a bit, and return, and if the glitch has worked some more money will have appeared near the body, you can repeat this process as long as the traffic is jammed and the ambulance cannot arrive to take away the corpse – or until the cops catch up with you.
This also works if you kill multiple people near the ATM, each body should spawn some money as you walk away from the area and return.
Easy Money from the Bank Truck
Another way to get some easy money in GTA 4 is to look out for bank trucks. If you’ve got a rocket launcher (use the weapons cheat from the table above) you can shoot the bank truck and the money should fly everywhere. Thats good for about $1000 every time. The only downside is that it will raise your wanted level by two stars each time you do this, so the cops will be all over you very soon!
