The GTA franchise is known for its cheats as much as its violence and cars. In the early console versions of the game they appeared in-game as button combinations, to be entered during regular gameplay in order to activate their effects. Then when the current-gen and PC version of GTA V launched, they brought with them a new way of using the iconic cheats.
If you pull up your character’s phone, and punch in the right number, initiating the call will trigger the associated cheat. Most phone cheats are the same as regular cheats, however some unique easter eggs have also been added by Rockstar that are phone exclusive.
Recently a new phone cheat named “Black Cellphones” was discovered. If you called the associated number, the numbers of which spelled out EMP-DROP, a small explosion would occur right in front of you, and the phone will turn black. Speculation as to the reason this exists lead to the rise of new rumors.
Black Cellphones isn’t the only new cheat to be discovered this week, however. Until now, a few of the regular cheats still didn’t have phone numbers or PC keyboard combinations assigned to them.
- Weapons: 1-999-8665-87 (TOOLUP)
- Fast Swim: 1-999-468-44557 (GOTGILLS)
- Super Jump: 1-999-467-86-48 (HOPTOIT)
- Spawn Caddy: 1-999-4653-46-1 (HOLEIN1)
- Spawn Duster: 1-999-359-77729 (FLYSPRAY)
With these discovered, the complete list of regular cheats has (finally) been completed. The recent discovery of Black Cellphones however, suggests that there are still some secret phone-only cheats out there which haven’t yet been found.
Players who have been involved with the Mount Chiliad mystery immediately latched on to this, seeing an opportunity for the next big break. While some months ago headway was being steadily made, things ground to a halt since. These curious players are hoping that undiscovered cell phone cheats are the next step in the puzzle, if not the solution itself.
Do you prefer using the cell phone cheating method in GTA V over regular button combinations, or are you more of a traditionalist?
