Newest GTA Online Anti-Cheat Methods Detailed

GTA Online patch 1.29, containing the Freemode Events DLC, has introduced a new anti-cheat system. Better yet, it introduced it in a way that does not shaft PC players.

In fact not only are PC players unshackled from their previous restraints, the new system works marvellously, nicking cheaters and hackers in GTA Online consistently. However, do not mistake the new method (which no longer breaks the game) any less strict. In fact, some of the new punishments are so severe that this can be considered yet another large scale crackdown.


As opposed to the previous infringement ladder (being 10 days to one month to two months, with only extreme cases earning a permaban) it seems Rockstar is no longer intent on keeping cheaters in the game and merely punishing them temporarily. Now, the 10 day ban comes with a longer or even permanent chat and mic ban, the one month ban sets your cash balance to GTA$20,000 (even if you purchased a Shark cash card), and the two month ban has been changed to a permanent ban from GTA Online.

But wait.

There’s more.

If you are hit with all three on the same account, you will reportedly be banned from playing story mode. Yes, you read that right. Story mode. If this happens, you will only be able to run the game in offline mode. This particular addition has already began to make the public restless, which could be expected, as why on earth would multiplayer hacking get you banned from the single player portion?

Other punishments include matchmaking limitations, which mean that you’d only be able to join lobbies with very few players, lobbies populated only by cheaters, or empty lobbies. This is still regulated based upon the bad sport points, or smaller cheating infringements.

GTA V’s New Anti-Cheat System Is Finally PC Friendly

Well, that took some time, didn’t it? By now, anyone who has been following GTA V news in any way knows that Rockstar is practically waging total war against the hackers and cheaters running rampant on GTA Online servers.

It all started nice and calm, with reserved measures such as default anti-cheat software integration, a community report system and a handful of hidden stats. Then Rockstar flexed their humor muscle (like they always do!) and pulled a fast one by making the Duke O’Death, which should not be in GTA Online at all, a booby-trapped cheater bait.


However, things got ugly when even after these well mannered measures, the number of hackers continued to an all time high, and was rising. Rockstar then took the gloves off and the war began. First, 1.27 disabled mods entirely in both single player and GTA Online, however the legitimate single player modders got around the block swiftly, when then allowed the Online modders back in.

This is where Rockstar dropped the figurative atomic bomb. 1.28 contained a complex anti-modding system which had the unforeseen circumstance of breaking the game entirely. Un-modded instances of GTA V ran with single digit frame rates on beastly PCs.

While Rockstar did mend that particular issue, and GTA V now runs optimally and mods work again, the issue of hackers is still very relevant, especially with Freemode Events making GTA Online much more open.

So Rockstar has implemented a new system with patch 1.29. Basically, the system is the old hidden stat tracking method on steroids. Now Rockstar has a massive arsenal of stats on each player which track a number of aspects of a single variable. Whereas in the old system they just looked at how much money you have at any given time, they now track when you get it, where you get it, why you get it and how you get it. With this multi-lateral approach, hackers are no longer covered by their targeted hacks, and the PC players and modders are free to carry on with their thing.

GTA V Ill-Gotten Gains Busting Vehicle Replicators


Grand Theft Auto Online’s newest update, 1.27, which included the first part of the Ill-Gotten Gains DLC, featured a plethora of tweaks, bug-fixes and security updates (which also killed mods on PC), as well as quite a bit of content, such as luxury jets, new vehicles and weapon engravings.

Turns out, some of the changes implemented by Rockstar in the patch are only seeing the light of day with a slight delay. One of these tweaks is the addition of a new stat which tracks the sale of vehicles. Patch 1.09/1.23 introduced a glitch which, in the right conditions, allowed players to duplicate vehicles, taking them back to their garage, and selling them as many times as they repeat the process. The method was unreliable at best, and required extreme patience for it to actually pay off, but some people out there were making a killing off duplicated vehicles.

With the new update, the rule regarding the 48 minute time limit, allowing players to sell a total of six cars per day before getting the warning about exceeding the limit is overridden. With the tracking enabled by the new stat in place, Rockstar can monitor people who make use of vehicle duplication and sales glitches, and ban them accordingly.


Rockstar has been very diligent in cracking down on any and all glitches or exploits that influence the game’s economy. GTA Online has a flourishing stock market, and while these glitches are in place, people turning a profit from them will have an unfair edge over those gamers who prefer to play in an honest manner.

The game’s stock market is also the reason why there is no money cheat implemented in single player. The stock market we access from the SP mode is the same one operating in GTA Online, therefore a single player money cheat would still wreak havoc on the stock prices in Online, with disastrous consequences.

For those of you who need a money-boost, Rockstar is offering Shark Cash Cards as DLC. PC gamers beware, though, as purchasing these voids your right to a steam refund.

Six New GTA V Cell Phone Cheats Found


Today we’re pleased to bring you six new cell phone numbers that will activate cheats in Grand Theft Auto V. While the cheats themselves are not new (eg “spawn BMX”), the discovery of the cell phone numbers to activate them is.

Cheats in the Xbox One, PS4 and PC versions of GTA V can be activated either by entering a button combination, or by entering a specific number on a cell phone. The only thing is that all of the cell phone versions of the cheats have not yet been found, however today you can cross six off of that list!

Make sure you check out the full list of cell phone cheats for GTA 5 here (the ones discovered so far) and check below for a summary of the new ones that have just been found.

  • Max Health & Armor: 1-999-887-853 (TURTLE)
  • Raise Wanted Level: 1-999-3844-8483 (FUGITIVE)
  • Explosive Melee Attacks: 1-999-4684-2637 (HOTHANDS)
  • Slippery Cars (also known as drifting): 1-999-766-9329 (SNOWDAY)
  • Spawn BMX: 1-999-226-348 (BANDIT)
  • Spawn Stunt Plane (fixed-wing stunt plane): 1-999-2276-78676 (BARN-STORM)

Cheat Limitations in GTA V

Grand Theft Auto V, a game that’s only increased in popularity since its initial release in 2013, has all of the elements that have made GTA games popular in the past. But for all of the praise it has received as the best GTA game yet, there are some players who miss certain aspects of previous titles in the series.

Cheat codes have been one of the most popular gameplay elements for fans of Grand Theft Auto V, primarily because of cheat codes’ ability to manipulate the gameplay and enable the player to have more fun – like using cheats to activate things such as moon gravity, invincibility, and weather changes.


However many fans of GTA V have been disappointed with some of the cheats in it, mainly because of certain limitations placed upon their use. For example, if you use the cheat code for invincibility, you can expect your invincibility to run out after five minutes, which can be very frustrating if you’re in the middle of a situation where invincibility is necessary to do what you want (imagine a shoot-out versus 20 cops!). Other fans are frustrated by the super jump cheat disabling once your character moves into an internal structure.

Part of the design of GTA V obviously included these limitations, but it’s curious as to why Rockstar decided to take this route with the cheat codes, especially since there were no limitations on the cheat codes in previous games in the Grand Theft Auto series. One of the aspects players often enjoyed most in previous titles in the series was the ability to turn the world into absolute chaos and yet walk away unscathed because of cheat codes. Some fans have speculated that Rockstar included cheat code limitations in order to make GTA 5 a little more realistic and present more of a challenge to players who often rely on cheat codes to get them out of sticky situations.


Whatever the reason for the inclusion of cheat code limitations in Grand Theft Auto V, fans of the game are definitely frustrated, especially fans who have been playing GTA games for years. While not every GTA game has the same cheat codes built in, there are definitely some that fans have gotten used to, and that importantly that worked without limitations. Five-minute invincibility is a new concept and is hard to see as a step up from the unlimited invincibility of the past. Perhaps Rockstar will remove these limitations in the next instalment of the series to give players the level of control they once enjoyed.

How will Cheats for GTA V on PC be Activated?


PC gamers who are fans of the Grand Theft Auto series of games have something exciting to look forward to this year when Grand Theft Auto V (finally) releases for PC on March 24. The game, which was originally released for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2013, has been completely remastered, giving fans who have already played the original version of the game plenty of new content and an improved gaming experience.

The game became instantly popular upon its initial launch, which was only a couple months before the Playstation 4 and Xbox One were also released. This prompted many fans who had upgraded their systems to want a version of the game for their new consoles. Then last year Rockstar Games announced that the game would be coming to the new platforms as well as PC. The remastered game was re-released for PS4 and Xbox One on November 18 2014 with the PC version being set back for a 2015 release.

One aspect of the game that fans are particularly excited about is the cheat codes that can be used to significantly alter some elements of game play (and yes, what this website is essentially all about!). Cheat codes have always been popular with GTA fans and some of the most popular cheats for GTA V give players the ability to change the weather, or give the game world moon gravity. Of course, the ever-popular cheats that give you maximum health or allow you to spawn new vehicles are also there. It’s easy to see why cheat codes would make the game even more fun than it already is because it gives you a high level of control over many of the elements that make it so popular.


An interesting question though, is how fans will be able to enter cheat codes on the PC version of the game. With the Xbox One and PS4 console versions, you have two main ways you can enter codes: control button combinations and by entering phone numbers into the in-game phone of your character. Using cell phone numbers has added an element of fun by giving the phone a purpose that significantly affects gameplay, it is also how cheats codes have been traditionally entered in previous GTA games like Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. That said though, being able to use controller button combinations is actually easier most of the time. Note that the first two platform releases of GTA V, on the Xbox 360 and PS3, only allow cheats to be entered via controller button combinations.

Turning to the PC version though, while it’s likely that phone number cheats will be made available (as they have been with the other remastered versions – on Xbox One and PS4), the question is whether there will be additional means of cheat entry, like via the keyboard. We note that GTA: SA had cheat entry via the keyboard too (with usually a couple of different codes being available to activate a specific cheat), and as we said earlier, using the cell phone to enter cheats can be time consuming and difficult in the middle of a car chase or gun fight.

Using the in-game phone for entering cheat codes is definitely a fun addition to the game, but reducing cheat code entry to just phone numbers will likely just frustrate players who may find they enjoy the console versions better for this reason. It’s easy to envision why phone numbers may be the only option because if you’re just using your PC keyboard, you’re not working with a controller and button combinations. However, you’d hope Rockstar also wants players to have the best gaming experience possible, and that would make it unlikely that the PC version would lack something the remastered console versions have – the ability to type in keyboard entries for cheat codes.

Three New GTA V Cell Phone Cheats

They can now be found listed with the rest of our cheats for GTA V remastered. Additionally, the new versions of GTA V have brought another benefit for players who enjoy cheat codes. While in the original versions, you had to re-enter each code every time you used it, these cell phone cheats make it a little easier thanks to a redial button. Pressing the phone’s * key will dial the last number, or re-activate the last cheat code, you entered.

First Cell Phone Cheat Discovered


The next-gen versions of Grand Theft Auto V on the PS4 and Xbox One are delivering more for cheat code and money seekers with the latest development being the discovery of the first cell phone cheat for GTA 5.

One of the biggest complaints that gamers have with GTA V is that cheats cannot be saved into the cell phone, like in previous Grand Theft Auto titles. Instead, you need to enter a specific button combination each time you’d like to activate a cheat.

In this regard we have some good news and some bad news. Yes, phone cheats appear to be back with the release of of GTA 5 on Xbox One and PS4, but you still cannot save them (i.e. you need to dial the relevant number each time you want to use the cheat).

The first phone cheat discovered is the SKYFALL cheat. To use it, simply dial the following into your cell phone:

1-999-759-3255 (1-999-SKY-FALL)

The SKYFALL cheat is one of the game’s more entertaining, and instantly transports you into the air, free-falling. Try it out for yourself and don’t forget to send us any more cheat codes you happen to discover!
