GTA V: Codes, Cheats and Free Money for the Extremely Lazy

Fancy a ton of free money? Here's how to get it. And once you're done, sit back and have some fun with this veritable smogasbord of old-school cheat codes.

First up, here's a lazy way of generating mondo cash. It still requires a little effort to set things up, but once you've got both your characters in the right place, you can earn yourself as much money as you have patience. Once you've finished making use of this golden, once-in-a-GTA V-lifetime opportunity, just continue to play the game normally.

The submerged hidden item here is worth $12,000 each time you pick it up.

Who doesn't want free money?

Choose the two characters who you'd like to make rich. Drive one to each of the beaches closest to the locations marked on the maps above and below, swim out to sea and dive when you reach the marked location and look for the underwater wreck there.

Once you've found both, locate the glowing briefcases: the first is close to the airplane on the sea floor, and the second is on the wreckage, near the open hatch. The moment you swim up to an item and are credited with recovering money, immediately switch to the other character and find the item at that location.

In similar style to the first character, swim up to the item, and the moment you're credited with the money, switch back to the other character, who can grab the money that has now respawned in the prior location. Now you can switch back and forth triggering this same effect repeatedly until you generate however much money you want.

Here's the second location, where the item is worth a cool $25,000 per grab.

Codes

Now you're rich, save your game and enjoy your ill-gotten gains. However, if you're feeling lazy and just want to have some fun, here are a bunch of codes that let you do everything from spawn vehicles to immediately lower your wanted level. These classic cheats have been in GTA games forever, and GTA V is no exception. As always, remember that the moment you use one of the codes listed below, achievements are disabled, and you're credited with using a cheat until you reload the game.
