Rockstar Games has been known to include a lot of cheat codes in their Grand Theft Auto franchise and GTA V is not spared, of course. Some of them can be used to get rare vehicles; some even alter the physics of the game. San Andreas, the fictional setting of the game, is ridiculously big and players might not know or just overlook tiny details that might influence the success of their heists. As such, we?ve taken the lead and rounded up the most useful GTA V tips and tricks as well as cheats to guide players on their way to criminal stardom.
GTA V gameplay tips and tricks:
- Take advantage of your in-game smartphone to access useful services
Your in-game smartphone serves as a shortcut for emergency services including the police, fire department, and ambulance. One of the most practical services to use is the Downtown Cab Co. This is a taxi service that can be used to transport you from point A to point B within Los Santos in less than a minute.
- Proper store robbing procedures
If you?re short on cash, stores are always there for you to steal from. For instance, you can rob cash from liquor stores. But before doing that, be sure to check out the robberies map and guide (yes, such thing exists in the game). Upon entering the store, walk further inside so that the door closes behind you.? Continue to walk out but stop midway so the door is kept open by your character; doing this will give you time to get your weapon and point it toward the store clerk.
- How to recover your health
Medkits can be found inside your safe houses whenever you need to recover your health. Health recovery can also be achieved by simply eating some food; you can buy them from the store or from vending machines around the city. Use the map to locate these food sources. Apparently, you can also recover by finding a prostitute and picking her up. Switching characters may recover your health too.
