Game Guides

46 codes that still work in GTA Vice City: The Definitive Edition

All trophies from the original remain.

Rockstar Games

Cheat codes may be a thing of the past, but they’re an integral part of the Grand Theft Auto series. With the launch of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City - The Definitive Edition, we now have access to an enhanced version of the iconic classic on modern consoles. Much like GTA III - The Definitive Edition, this new version of Vice City retains all 46 cheat codes from the original, sending you on a nostalgia trip as you wreak havoc on the fictionalized rendition of Miami. These are all the cheat codes across all platforms, along with details on how these cheats impact trophies and achievements.

All confirmed GTA: Vice City Definitive Edition cheats

The full list of GTA: Vice City - The Definitive Edition cheats can be found below. Based on our testing, every cheat code from the original works in the new version. It’s possible more cheats have been added that have been undiscovered, and if so, we’ll add those as they’re uncovered.

Cheats can be applied by entering the button/key inputs in the middle of the game (not from the pause menu). There’s no need to press the buttons in rapid succession.

Do the GTA: Vice City Definitive Edition cheats disable trophies or achievements?

Driving around Vice City looks better than ever.Rockstar Games

Unfortunately, entering cheat codes while playing GTA: Vice City - The Definitive Edition will disable trophies on PlayStation and achievements on Xbox. You can have multiple save files, though, so if you want to earn the platinum trophy or 1,000 gamerscore, make sure you use a separate file for cheating.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City - The Definitive Edition is available now.
