There’s no GTA 5 money cheat code, but there are other ways to earn cash fast.
Let’s get this out of the way now: There is no GTA 5 money cheat. In single player there are GTA 5 cheats for pretty much everything, from making yourself invincible to maxing out your health and armour, but there isn’t one that’ll give you an infinite bank balance. Fallout 4 cheats: Nuclear codes
Minecraft commands: Unblocked
RDR2 cheats: Most wanted
GTA 5 cheats: Phone it in
The Sims 4 cheats: Life hacks
Ark cheats: Expedited evolution
That’s down to the game’s stock market, which is one way of ensuring that you can still lord your many millions over the rest of Los Santos from your glistening ivory tower regardless. The single player stock market persists in all instances of the game, and it’d be ruined if any player can cheat their way to their fortunes in an instant. More on that below.
However, if you’re here looking for a GTA Online money cheat, they exist, but they’re not worth the risk. These third-party initiatives, that tend to ask for your Social Club information and have you take a survey, are scams that must be avoided. Rockstar already offer you the chance to pay real money to add cash to your Online account, so an official money cheat will just never happen. They also contravene Rockstar’s terms and conditions, so pursuing that route risks getting your account banned.
So, in lieu of a GTA 5 money cheat for Online or single player, here’s how to make serious cash in Los Santos fast, without any lawyers needing to get involved.
The thing is, you don’t even need a cheat to get rich in GTA 5’s story. Follow these sneaky stock market tips to make over GTA$2 billion. Yes, that’s with a ‘b’. Access the stock market by navigating to the ‘Internet’ tab on your phone, click on Money and Services’, and then hit ‘LCN’ or ‘BAWSAQ’:
Before you worry about making money, some good news: Just logging into GTA Online in May will earn you a free GTA$500,000 from Rockstar. But when it comes to earning your own millions in GTA Online, our guide on how to make money in GTA Online is the place to start.
That guide covers everything you need to know about big money opportunities, like double money events, heists, hauling cargo, and more. Some of these can be more time-consuming than others. For instance, the GTA casino heist payout is GTA$2.1 million, but thorough prep can take a few hours, and then another 20 minutes for the actual job itself. On the plus side, it’s a big, fun project to take on.
But big heists like that aren’t much good when you’re just starting out in GTA Online, because you’ll need some resources to take them on. The same goes for some of the other systems, which can require an initial investment of GTA$1.2 million before you can really get going. To start getting money quickly, complete your daily objectives and do some premium races to get some starter cash.
Then you’ll want to focus on passive sources of income that will keep earning you money in the background: Nightclubs, motorcycle clubs, and gunrunning will all pull in cash for you even when you aren’t actively doing anything.GTA 5 cheats: Every cheat code and vehicle spawn

However, GTA 4 didn’t have a money cheat, and GTA 5 carried that forward. Either way, with our tips for Online and single player, you’ll never want for a single penny ever again. You’re most welcome.
