Cheat Codes

Cheat mode

Enter one of the following codes during game play to activate the corresponding cheat function. The message "Cheat Activated" will appear to confirm correct code entry.

The codes can also be activated at the menu screen (press [Esc] during game play) to avoid having your character moving around while they are being entered.

Note: Codes can be entered multiple times. For example, keep typing gunsgunsguns etc. to have more ammunition as well as all guns. The giveusatank code can only be activated four times.

Unlimited ammunition

Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "weapons.cfg" or "weapons.dat" file in the game directory. Find where it defines the ammunition. Most of the time it will be in the "F" section. When you change it, make sure the ones to the right are the same as they were.

Full damage

Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "weapons.cfg" or "weapons.dat" file in the game directory. Find where it defines the damage by reading it. Most of the time it will be in the "G" section. When you change it, make sure the ones to the right are the same as they were.

Unlimited ammunition

Hold the pistol and enable the gunsgunsguns repeatedly. You will eventually have unlimited ammunition for any gun that you have to reload. If you are wasted or busted, the code must be repeated.

Ammunition limit

Activating the gunsgunsguns code repeatedly does not give you unlimited ammunition. To demonstrate this, take out a gun and keep enabling the gunsgunsguns code until you have as close to 9,999 rounds as possible. Then, enable the code one more time and you will not be able to see it anymore. Keep shooting your gun. After awhile, you will see your ammunition count again.

Change car attributes

Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "handling.cfg" file in the "\rockstar games\gta3\data" folder. You can change the various attributes (speed, weight, etc.) of any car. Read the text in the "handling.cfg" file for an explanation of what can be changed.

Change weapon attributes

Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "weapon.cfg" file in the "data" sub-folder in the game directory. You can change the various attributes (reload time, ammunition, damage, etc.) of any weapon . Read the text in the "weapon.cfg" file for an explanation of what can be changed.

Increase car acceleration

Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "handling.cfg" file in the "data" sub-folder in the game directory. When you open that file, you will see a table which has vehicle names in rows (Such as LANDSTAL, IDAHO, STINGER, etc.) and alphabetic characters in columns. For example, to increase the maximum speed and acceleration of the Rhino tank, choose column N, Row "RHINO" and change its value to "200.0". This will set the Rhino tank's maximum speed to 200K mph . Select column O in the same row and change its value to "33.0" ,which will make its acceleration higher. This method can be tricky, but if done correctly, your tank can fly. Note: Enable the cornerslikemad code to increase the handling of the tank.

Listen to radio stations at any time

If you have sufficient hard drive space, you can listen to the radio stations at any desired time. Insert the "Play" disc then click on "My Computer" and click on your CD drive. Enter the "Audio" folder to access a group of .WAV and .MP3 files. You can listen to any mission, radio station, or event. Copy them to your hard drive for smoother playback. You can hear everything (pedestrians, crashes, horns, etc) with a file on your hard drive in the "audio" folder in the game directory. There is a file called "sfx.raw" that can be opened in a .WAV file editor. Change the sampling rate to a lower setting and there will be a very long audio clip of everything there is to be heard in the game.

Custom music

Copy some of your favorite MP3 files into the "mp3" folder in the game folder. Start the game and you will have a new radio station titled "mp3 player". Choose it to hear your own selections.

Instead of copying your MP3 files to the "mp3" folder, just create shortcuts using Windows Explorer to the files inside your existing folder with MP3 files. The game will play all MP3 files the shortcuts are pointing to. This is very useful if you have large libraries of MP3s on CD and do not have the hard drive space for them.

Custom skin

Open the "skin" folder in the main game folder. Copy the skin "playa2.bmp" into any desired folder, then rename it "playa3.bmp". Open the "playa3.bmp", into MS Paint, Adobe Photo Shop, or another graphics program. Re-color and customize it as desired, then copy it back into the "skin" folder in the main game folder. Start the game, go into "Player Options", and choose your new skin.

Better game performance

If you have an updated PC and exceed the highest graphics and performance requirements of the game, using an OS like as Windows Vista, Windows 7 or later, and are experiencing issues such as lag, slow movement, or mouse movement not working, do the following. Enter the location where the game was installed (for example, "C:\Program Files") and look for the executable file for the game. Right click on it. Click "Properties", and under the "Compatibility" tab check the "Run this software on compatibility mode:" box and select "Windows 98/Windows ME". Then, click "Apply" and close. Run the game and configure its graphic parameters to the highest values possible, including effects and screen resolution, and disable VSync if available. Then save the changes. Exit and restart the game. Your game should now be running with smooth and clear graphics, no lagging, and mouse movement working correctly at all times.

Glitches

More cars in garage

You can fit more cars in your hideout's garage than you are supposed to. In district two, the garage should only hold two cars but you can fit four in (or five if they are small). Park the first two besides each other next to the wall. Then, park each car after that next to the door. Get out and the door will open. Quickly drive the car in before the door shuts. Now all three or four cars are saved. In order for this to work you need to park them very close together.

Change size of moon

Use a sniper rifle and aim at the moon. Shoot the moon and it will get bigger. When you shoot it again, it will get smaller.

Survive when under a car

When someone runs over you with a car and you are stuck in the bottom, you will usually die. If you want to survive, press [Esc] to pause game play. Enable the turtoise and gesundheit codes, then enable the bangbangbang code. Press [Esc] to resume game play, then quickly press G to destroy the car. Then, enable the turtoise or gesundheit codes to get full health.

Get to any of the other islands early

Go back to the bridge and walk past the road block without a car. When you get far enough up the road, enable the giveusatank code and turn the gun so it is pointing behind the tank. Enable the chittychittybb code, then shoot the cannon and drive until you fly off the bridge. If done correctly, you will hover over the broken part onto the other side.

Start a new game and do the Give Me Liberty, and Luigi's Girls missions. Then, get a fast car and enable the chittychittybb and cornerslikemad codes. Once you are able to jump the Callahan Bridge (the one that is broken apart) and get to Staunton Island, save the game. Then, drive to the stadium on Staunton Island. Once you are near it, look for a tunnel with signs above it that read "Shoreside Vale", and "Portland". Follow that tunnel and turn left when you get the chance. Take that road and follow it until you get to the end. You are now in Shoreside Vale.

Intentionally die and end up at the hospital. Walk up the steps on to the road and get a car (or taxi if possible). Opposite the hospital is the University. Drive down the hill and take the left in to the University before the T-junction. Do a 180 degree turn so that the back of your car is at the top of the steps. Enable the cornerslikemad code, then drive forward and jump over the fence. If done correctly, you should end up on a platform. To your left should be a wall that is tiled. Move forward into the glass slowly. Your car will enter the glass wall and you will drop in the tunnels used in later missions.

Enable the chittychittybb code near a bridge, build up speed, and fly over. Note: You can continue to bring cars in and out of the islands, but every new car needs a code. For better chances, the enable cornerslikemad and press [Shift] to jump off the edge.

Enable the giveusatank and chittychittybb codes. Get in the Rhino tank and rotate the cannon barrel so that it is facing the rear of the tank. Drive to any long, straight strech of road. Accelerate while firing the cannon continually without stopping. Eventually, you will lift of the ground. Continue accelerating and shooting while in the air. With practice you can fly to and from the three islands with ease.

Staunton Island: Make all cars disappear from the multi-story parking lot

Go to the multi-story parking lot and get in one of the cars. It does not matter what car you get in, as long as it is from the parking lot. Get in the car and drive to the top. Drive it onto the ramp. Do not go over the edge. Get out of the car and get on top of it. As soon as you get on the roof of the car, it should disappear and so should all the cars from the parking lot.
