Sure, you could hail a taxi, or steal a random car on the side of the road, but there is an easier way to get around. There are times where it would be far less complicated to simply spawn a helicopter right at your feet, and these GTA 5 cheats will help you do exactly that, plus much more. We've assembled a list of GTA 5 cheats to help make your time in Los Santos even more enjoyable. Whether you want to become fully invincible, or you want to have every gun available on a whim, these cheats will transform you into an unstoppable force. Be warned that using any of these cheats will disable achievements/trophies from unlocking during your current session. It may be worth loading up a separate save when you want to mess around with cheats to avoid any issues.

The method of inputting the cheat codes varies between PC and console, so we'll focus on how to use these codes first. Read the rest of the story...

GTA Online players are mulling around to see what's new in this week's update ahead of Rockstar Game's usual newswire post. While Rockstar doesn't post its rundown until later on in the day, the weekly reset happens earlier than that so people can find out what's new reasonably quickly. This week you're getting double the rewards on sea races, air races, the Stockpile adversary mode, A Superyacht Life missions, air freight, hidden caches, and treasure chests - phew! As you can probably tell, this is all themed around GTA Online's yachts and planes. You've got a few decent options here for racking up some extra money in races or doing more open-world activities like cargo running. Even if you don't fancy races, you can still rack up some money doing other activities. Rockstar is also introducing a heap of discounts to help you get set up with what you need to tackle the missions. Several planes, such as the Jobuilt P-996 Lazer, are 40% off, and you'll find that all hangers have been discounted by 60%, too. The Orion, Pisces, and Aquarius versions of the Galaxy Super Yacht are discounted by 50%. Read the rest of the story...

He roleplays as a character called Kevin Whipaloo, who owns a restaurant among other businesses on the server and is the Diamond Resort and Casino floor manager. It turns out, though, that the responsibilities that come with all of that are exhausting when you have to factor in your roleplaying employees' needs. So Morris is taking a break from GTA RP, at least for now. The content creator told his stream that the responsibilities of having that many jobs in-game have begun to feel like a real-life job. "I'm taking a break, and I'm coming back when I feel like it," he explains. "It's too much. I don't want to say those things while I'm doing GTA RP because the last thing I want is someone to look at Kevin in-game and say, 'oh, I don't want to interact with him because I know he's got too many interactions going on already'." One of the challenges of roleplay is that everything has more consequences as you have to consider how it'll affect other people. Whipaloo's character has the amusing hook of someone trying to live an honest life in a dishonest city. Try as he might, Whipaloo can't avoid the life of crime, no matter how many startups he gets involved with. Read the rest of the story...

While Grand Theft Auto 5 has been out for around seven years now, it's more or less the same deal. GTA Online also operates on the same dime and can take a hot minute to boot up even after you've loaded into GTA 5 itself. I've rarely questioned it as Grand Theft Auto 5 is a lot of game, after all. Now, though, someone has decided to mull around in the crime game's files for themselves to see if they can speed GTA Online's loading times up, and it looks like they've achieved some promising results. The GTA 5 fan posted their findings online after managing to speed up loading times by up to 70%. I'd encourage you to read their post in full, but the short version is that they found a single-thread CPU bottleneck while starting up GTA Online and that GTA struggles to parse a 10MB JSON file as the JSON parser is reportedly "poorly built".

Rockstar provides the official rundown of what the GTA Online weekly update entails later on in the day, though the content goes live when reset hits. As such, players mull around and post what's new to Reddit and Twitter. This week you'll be able to buy a weaponised dinghy - yes, really - for $1,850,000 in GTA bucks from Warstock Cache & Carry. To find it, head to your humble abode, go to the garage, interact with your PC, and you should see the new vehicle. You're looking for the Nagasaki Weaponised Dinghy, which is pretty hard to miss. It doesn't, uh, appear to offer the most protection, but there's little else like it. If you need to raise some funds, the good news is that it's looking like an excellent week to grind some dosh. Special cargo sales are offering twice their usual reward, and special cargo warehouses are 50% off. So they're cheaper to set up, and pay out more, too. If you haven't heard of them before, they're a type of CEO mission that Rockstar added to the game with the Further Adventures in Finance and Felony update. Simply put, they're open-world missions that task you with going out, fetching cargo, and stashing them in your warehouse. Read the rest of the story...

Illinois state representative Marcus C. Evans Jr. is seeking to amend a 2012 Illinois law that bans underage children from accessing violent video games. If passed, HB3531 would prohibit "the sale of all violent video games" in the state, with a penalty of up to $1000 (£709) for those selling violent games. It would also modify the definition of a violent video game to one that "allows a user or player to control a character within the video game that is encouraged to perpetuate human-on-human violence in which the player kills or otherwise causes serious physical or psychological harm to another human or an animal". Read more Illinois politician wants to ban Grand Theft Auto after a rise in Chicago carjackingsFeb 23, 2021 - PCGamesNFebruary 23, 2021 The ESA has issued a statement on the proposed Illinois legislation. A rash of carjackings in Chicago over the past year has, of course, led some to point fingers at violent videogames. Now, an Illinois lawmaker wants to amend a state restriction on selling violent games to minors so that it would ban the sale of violent games to anyone - and would define depictions of motor vehicle theft as violence. Following the original publication of this article, a representative of the Entertainment Software Association, the US game industry's largest trade association, reached out with the following statement: "While our industry understands and shares the concerns about what has been happening in Chicago, there simply is no evidence of a link between interactive entertainment and real-world violence. We believe the solution to this complex problem resides in examining thoroughly the actual factors that drive such behaviors rather than erroneously ascribing blame to videogames based solely upon speculation." Illinois's criminal code of 2012 restricts the sale of violent games to minors, with a fine of $1,000 USD as punishment. Democratic State Representative Marcus Evans Jr. has introduced HB3531, which would ban sales of violent games outright. The bill would also modify the definition of 'violent' to "include psychological harm and child abuse, sexual abuse, animal abuse, domestic violence, violence against women, or motor vehicle theft with a driver or passenger present inside the vehicle when the theft begins."

He's no stranger to controversy and is a frequent rule-bender, which has landed him with plenty of suspensions in the past throughout both his professional esports career and since turning to streaming full time. xQc's latest comes from the land of roleplaying. Over the last few weeks, there's been a spike in popularity for GTA V roleplay content on Twitch, and 2020's most watched streamer wanted in on the action. xQc has been recently streaming in the popular and well-renowned NoPixel server, tearing around the open world and bumping into other roleplayers in the process, all in front of his usual massive audience. However, on trying to access the server during his February 22 stream, the former Overwatch pro was met with a message informing him he had been permanently banned. This was due to breaking one of the NoPixel servers golden rules: No ramming other players with vehicles without reason to do so. Read the rest of the story...

As such, GTA Online players are mulling around to see what's new ahead of Rockstar's more official roundup on its newswire. While the GTA Online weekly update's main thrust is usually which mode is paying out the most, sometimes other things grab players' attention. Namely, peyote plants. There are typically 76 of them scattered around Los Santos, and eating one will turn you into an animal for a brief stint (it's a hell of a trip). They're back this week, so if you need a break from making some dosh, you can go and be one with nature, maaaaan. We've also got another new vehicle this week. This time it's the Dinka Verus, a quad bike you may recognise from the Cayo Perico update. If you fancy adding it to your collection, head to Warstock Cache and Carry and pick it up for GTA$192,000. If you're looking to raise some funds this week, open-wheel races and contract missions are paying out double, whereas bodyguard and associate missions are dishing out triple their usual rewards.

Not only do they make new - and often silly - things possible in some of the best PC games around, but they often make some cross-game mash-ups we might never have thought of come to life, too. Take a new Grand Theft Auto 5 mod, for example, that brings one of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' planes to Los Santos. Modder Jamessays has posted a new add-on version of their recent PUBG C-130t plane mod for GTA 5 on the open-world game's 5 Mods site. In case you need a refresher, the C-130 plane is the vehicle used to drop the battle royale game's 100 parachuting players into PUBG's island map - and, as such, it's non-useable. Well, until now. Jamessays' mod uses modder Hi2142's 'Philippine Air Force C-130T 1.0.2' GTA 5 mod and re-skins it to add a skin accurate to PUBG's version, as well as "20x more health than regular titan". As you can see when you compare the mod's images to those of the PUBG craft on its Gamepedia page, it looks like a really faithful rendition, from the colour down to the symbol on its rudder.

We're also mere days away from the romance extravaganza that is Valentine's Day, so I suppose it's not too surprising that most of the goodies people are digging up are themed around the event. If you're looking to make some cash this week, it looks like PvP modes are the way to go. The Shotgun Wedding deathmatch and Till Death Do Us Part adversary mode are offering triple the rewards that they usually do on RP and GTA bucks. The former is merely a game of deathmatch on a map that has a chapel. The latter, though, puts players into teams of two in a last man standing mode in which each group shares one life. Better pick 'em well, gang. This week doesn't appear to be as financially lucrative as the previously weekly update with its bonuses on the heist, but it's a good time to get into the nightlife trade if that's your thing. All nightclubs are 40% off, and renovations are 30% off on top of that. You can also get double rewards on DJ requests. Read the rest of the story...

Rockstar's decision to forgo single-player GTA 5 DLC in favour of non-stop updates for GTA Online has always been controversial, but story-driven content like the Cayo Perico heist has managed to pretty effectively split the difference. A lot of players are doing Cayo Perico solo, and it seems parent company Take-Two is happy about the single-player possibilities. "More than 50% of those playing the Cayo Perico heist are engaging with this as a new single-player experience," Take-Two revealed in its latest financial earnings call. CEO Straus Zelnick says the success of Cayo Perico as single-player content "wasn't coincidental", either. "The folks at Rockstar Games intended to create a powerful single-player experience - a story-driven experience," Zelnick says. He adds that it's "a reminder" that Rockstar can do both multiplayer and single-player content at "the highest possible level of execution in our business." Read the rest of the story...

Grand Theft Auto V fans are bound to be wondering that as Rockstar's open-world game continues to skyrocket in viewership figures on Twitch thanks to its RPG community. The reason for the resurgence is a host of prominent streamers who have been engaging with the game's role playing servers, such as Lirik, Summit1G, and TimTheTatMan. All this will be familiar to anyone who has used Skyrim's Alternate Start mods - GTA RP allows you to join the game as a regular NPC as opposed to any of the main characters thanks to the installation of a mod. The trend of role-playing has been around for years as it proves to be quite idyllic - instead of being thrust into the spotlight, you can live out a normal life and inhabit whatever character you'd like to be. If you're new to all this, however, it can prove to be quite daunting. You need to download the required mods to make it work, find and apply to join servers, and then figure out how to properly play the thing itself. On top of all that, you'll also come across a bunch of slang terms you may be unfamiliar with.

GTA RP's latest star is Cyberpunk 2077's Johnny SilverhandFeb 9, 2021 - PCGamesNOne of my favourite things about Grand Theft Auto V's roleplaying community is the characters you stumble across. Last year we spoke to the GTA roleplayers who task themselves with enforcing Los Santos, and the kinds of strain that streaming those sessions of roleplay bring. Since the NoPixel 3.0 GTA RP server's launch, though, variety streamers have started returning to Los Santos to see what's new. As more attention has returned to the scene, a particular GTA RP streamer has begun to appear more consistently on Reddit. Content creator Burn roleplays as Cyberpunk 2077's Johnny Silverhand but doesn't settle for merely looking or sounding like the Samurai frontman. He'll strike a T-pose in the middle of a conversation, and generally glitches out anything he touches. The most viral clip of Burn so far involves an encounter with Félix 'xQc' Lengyel. It has plenty of glitches you'll likely recognise from Cyberpunk 2077, from T-poses to character models going awry. The whole thing starts with xQc falling off his bike, and trying to talk to Burn while he bugs out and hovers in mid-air as he tries to get back into his car. The Silverhand impression is funny enough, but watching other roleplayers try to adlib and react to it is genuinely amusing. Read the rest of the story...

The latest staggering total for the game was revealed by publisher Take-Two during an investor call last night (via SeekingAlpha). Perhaps more surprisingly, 2020 was the game's best year of sales since the year of GTA5's original launch back in 2013 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Take-Two has announced that GTA 5 sales have now exceeded 140 million units shipped, up from the 135 million number announced in August 2020. You might be losing sight of just how massive this number is based, but those sales figures exceed nearly every console platform ever released - all but the PS2 and DS. That's absurd, friends. The 140 million figure is current as of December 2020. This total of units 'shipped' includes retail discs sent to stores but not yet sold through to players, but in the modern age where the majority of game sales are now digital, that distinction means a lot less than it used to. This makes 2020 GTA 5's biggest sales year since its launch in 2013. So if you're wondering why that GTA 6 release date still seems so far away, there really isn't much incentive for Rockstar or Take-Two to pump out a sequel when the existing game is continuing to sell better than the vast majority of new release videogames.

Last month a group of Reddit users invested heavily in GameStop shares to flip the script on a few hedge funds. The group did cause some disruption for a bit, but ultimately, many people lost a lot of money. A lot of it has been brought about meme culture on Reddit, so it perhaps fits that the whole thing has got its own retelling through a Grand Theft Auto V machinima. Does watching the video make this entire ordeal less confusing? No, not really, but It's an amusing video to get your Monday off to a bright, cheery, and silly start - all things we like at PCGamesN. The video involves someone riding high after getting in on the GameStonk buzz. He's quite chuffed about the situation, and shouts "to the moon!" a lot - a phrase I am now filling our Slack with. Eventually, he comes across someone who reckons this all sounds quite neat and gets in on it himself. That doesn't go well, and shenanigans ensue. Read the rest of the story...

For a hot minute, the open-world game was being watched on stream by over 400,000 people. The end of January, a new trailer heralded the release of the NoPixel 3.0 GTA RP server, a GTA Online server designed for role-playing in a makeshift San Andreas. Players can be criminals, cops, regular people just making ends meet, whatever, all existing in this MMORPG game-like ecosystem. The server is made using the FiveM modding framework, and upheld by a dedicated team of volunteers. The server is open, but you have to apply via the NoPixel website to be cleared for entry, with a waiting time of two to four weeks. This somewhat limited availability has worked out, however, because on Friday, 413,000 viewers were tuning into creators on Twitch playing Grand Theft Auto 5. Part of NoPixel's charm is that it's communal, you watch content creators, then go enter the world yourself, everyone sharing in the experience. The peak it created indicates quite a stir among the playerbase, given that's four times the current amount playing the crime game. Read the rest of the story...
