GTA 5 Cheats, Secrets, Exploits and Glitches

Secret Weapons and Cars

Exotic Cars
In GTA 5; you will come across a parking lot with all kinds of exotic and rare cars parked in it. These cars are not easily available in the other parts of the world; so make sure you check them out.

I’m not sure whether these cars would also be there in GTA Online or not. You can check this video to know the location of these exotic vehicles.

Baseball Bat
You can find a Baseball Bat to use as a weapon in GTA 5. This Baseball Bat is pretty lethal and really fun to use. It can be regarded as a secret weapon as it can’t be purchased from any of the stores in the game.

Check out this LegitGamingVetern’s video to know the exact location of this brutally fun to use weapon.

GTA Online Exploits

Unlimited Money
This is a pretty decent way of earning some good amount of cash in GTA Online without putting in much effort! What you need to do is to start GTA 5 story mode and then go to Online Play from the Main Menu. However; make sure that you’re playing the game as ‘Invite Only’.

Once you have done this; go to a Liquor Store and rob the store by pointing your gun at the cashier. You can also kill him to get this much quicker.

Note: Sometimes, the cashier will take out a gun to kill you! If this happens; shoot him and take the money from register.

Anyway, after you loot the store; evade the cops and enter Main Menu and then enter Xbox Store. Wait for a while for the store to load and once it loads; press ‘B’ to exit to your game. Now; if you walk into the same store again, you will find the cashier alive with all the money.

Check out KoolTubeHD’s video for more details on it.

GTA 5 Glitches

Under the Stairs
This is a pretty amazing glitch found in GTA 5 which literally puts the players under some stairs with a view of outside world.

Your character would be able to throw grenades and shoot at the outside world with cops going crazy to find you. Check out IAmHero144′s video to know the exact location where this glitch can be activated.

Cannon Door
First of all; in order to get this glitch to work; you must have a sports car.

After you have equipped yourself with a sports car; get to the designated location in the video provided and go through the sliding door of a house.

The sliding gate will literally throw off your car flying to a some distant place. Check out LegitGamingVeteran’s video to know how to do it!

Get a Clone of your Car
This is glitch found in GTA 5 which lets you get a clone (Duplicate) for free.

The first thing you want to do is to select a vehicle which you would like to duplicate and then park it into a garage. Now the timing is very strict here! You need to switch to any character by holding ‘D’ on your D-Pad the moment your character comes out of the car and shuts its door.

After you have switched to another character; switch back to your initial character and go to garage to find two identical vehicles parked in it. They might be staking upon each other depending upon the space available.

LegitGamingVeteran’s video will help you further.

Note: This works for every vehicle in the game including Aircraft.

Buy Properties for Free
This is a amazing way of buying any property for free while playing GTA 5. The only you should have for this is the money to buy the particular property initially and you will get it back later on!

To start; go to any property that you want to buy and purchase it! As soon as you purchase it; enter the Main Menu and replay any mission of your choice (The one you find the easiest).

Note: You must complete the mission in order to get back your money.

Once you complete the mission, you will be asked to save the game. Save it and then save it again manually! Do this successfully and you’ll see that you have the same amount money before purchasing the property along with the property you bought!

Check out this video to exactly know how to do it!

Repair your Car for Free
This is an amazing way of repairing your car for free and instantly without having to go to Los Santos Repairing Shop and spending in some bucks.

All you are required to do is to stay in the car you want to repair and hold ‘D’ on the D-Pad and switch to any other character. Once the switch is complete; revert back to your original character at once and you will see your car in brand new condition!

Under the Map
HerpOG’s youtube channel found a way to get under the whole world of GTA 5 where you would be able to spawn all kinds of vehicles and see the entire world from another perspective.

All you need to do is to go to a train track as shown in the video and jump off your car while in speed to get under the map! Refer to the video for more details!

Wall-breach in Cars
Using this glitch, you would be able to wall-breach into any car you want! The only catch here is the strict timing that you need to have in order for it to work.

Just get inside any car and hold ‘D’ on D-Pad and get off the car. Now; as soon as your character comes out of the car, switch to another character and then revert back to your original character to find him stuck in the car.
