New Cheat Codes Discovered For GTA San Andreas

The Grand Theft Auto series is known for having a sizable amount of secrets, but is it possible we're still discovering brand new cheats in GTA San Andreas, a game that's now fifteen years old?

Sort of.

A YouTuber named Vadim M posted a video back on Aug. 25 showing off some never-before-seen cheat codes in GTA San Andreas for mobile. This version of the game was ported to iOS and Android in 2013, and it appears the studio behind the ports, War Drum, added some additional codes to make testing San Andreas on mobile a little easier.

In order to enter them, you'll need a keyboard attached to your iOS or Android device, perhaps via Bluetooth or USB. You can then press a series of keyboard buttons while playing San Andreas to unlock some perks or bypass certain areas.

To start, there is an invincibility cheat in the mobile port of San Andreas that enables you to shrug off damage from any source imaginable. Is there a tank trying to run you over? No sweat. Do you have a dozen armed police officers shooting at you? Not a problem. Did you just fall from the tallest building in San Andreas? You'll slam into the ground with a thud and then walk away without a scratch. And what makes this cheat even more amazing is the fact that jumping into a vehicle also makes that invincible, too. Permanently. You essentially become the King Midas of invincibility with this code active, so if you've ever wanted to wreak havoc in GTA San Andreas without worrying about dying, all you have to do is type out "GONPXWR" in the game.

What if you're playing San Andreas again on mobile and you'd rather just skip the first few missions in the game? Believe it or not, that's possible thanks to these new cheat codes, too. There's a cheat called "script bypass" that's accessible by typing "BYIXZIY" while playing. And it essentially auto-completes the mission you're currently on, regardless of where you are and what you're doing. If there's a mission you find boring, or if something is a little too challenging for you to tackle on your smartphone or tablet, this cheat is your ticket forward without actually having to complete the mission legitimately.

Here's another cool cheat that gives you a taste of Majora's Mask inside GTA San Andreas. Have you ever wanted to progress the day forward without actually having to wait for time to pass? There is a "time travel" code that can be switched on by typing "YACKMWS." All you have to do is enter that command to instantly skip four hours ahead in your San Andreas day, which is honestly a godsend if you're waiting for a certain thing to happen at a certain time.

But let's be honest: if you're going to use any cheat code in a Grand Theft Auto game, it's going to be the one that gives you cool weapons. By typing in "BIEUHQY," you can arm yourself with a mini-gun, thermal-vision goggles, and what Vadim M refers to as an "odd wobbly stick." We imagine most who use this cheat will be interested in the mini-gun and maybe the thermal goggles. The stick is... well, someone at War Drum clearly has a strange sense of humor. We'll just leave it at that.

As you can imagine, the Grand Theft Auto community is diving in now to see how useful these codes can be in the mobile versions of San Andreas. Not only that, we're sure others are searching like crazy to try and uncover some additional cheats War Drum might have added to the iOS and Android San Andreas ports. It's not uncommon at all to see cheat codes in a Grand Theft Auto title; as we said, the games are known for them at this point. But these cheats are far more interesting in that they might've never been intended for player use.

So what do you think: will you be trying some of these cheats yourself in GTA San Andreas? And if you don't own the game on mobile, do the cheats have you interested enough to download a copy? If the answer is yes to either, you can find GTA San Andreas in both the Google Play Store and the iOS App Store.
