Tommy talking to a small audience at a bar in GTA Vice City.

Looking for the best GTA Vice City cheat codes? First released in 2002, this open-world game brings the series’ special brand of mayhem to the 80s inspired Vice City. Of course, the streets are already fairly chaotic, but you can always enter some cheat codes if you want to add even more destruction.

These GTA trilogy cheat codes are unchanged from the game’s original release 20 years ago. So far, we haven’t yet been able to confirm they all still work, as in an interview with USA Today, producer Rich Rosado disclosed that a few cheat codes haven’t made it in due to technical limitations. A lot has changed in the world since GTA Vice City was released. Some of the cheat codes are a bit distasteful, more so with Vice City than any of the other games in the collection.

With that in mind, here are the best GTA Vice City cheats – including codes that give you new weapon sets, spawn vehicles from nowhere, change your character’s skin, and much more. There are plenty of cheats available in every GTA game – here are the best GTA 3 cheat codes and GTA San Andreas cheat codes.
