Before using any of the Grand Theft Auto San Andreas cheat codes, players are recommended to make a backup of their saved files. Using cheats may occasionally end up corrupting the files, or affect the game with an unfixable glitch. Using cheats may also crash the game while playing, so being cautious while using them is advisable.

Another thing that players should note is that activating any cheat disables achievements. Achievement hunters who wish to claim all the achievement trophies should use cheats after unlocking their targeted achievements.

How different are the cheats on the Switch?

Ad

The Switch ports of the games are a bit of a downgrade in terms of visuals compared to their console and PC counterparts. Even the Netflix's mobile port of Grand Theft Auto Trilogy Definitive Edition looks way better than the Switch's version. This downgrade seems to be applicable for cheats as well, as several cheat codes that worked in the original trilogy are no longer supported in the remasters. This was allegedly done due to hardware limitations.

However, there is one new cheat code (the Konami code) that initiates 'big head mode'. This cheat code is applicable on all three games, across all platforms but PC.

All character models, including the player and NPCs, get a comically large head, like that of a bobblehead. The rest of the cheats are the same, and have the same effects as well.



Is the Switch port worth playing?

Ad

By now, most Rockstar Games fans are well-aware of the disastrous launch that the Definitive Edition Trilogy had. This was especially true for PC and Switch, as the games were nearly unplayable on these platforms. Being the most complex game in the trilogy, Grand Theft Auto San Andreas was a bit more buggy than the rest.

However, with several title updates released since then, Rockstar has patched out most of the issues that these games have had. The games are quite stable on all platforms right now. While PC is still the best platform to enjoy these games, thanks to mods, the Switch versions aren't bad either.

These are much more enjoyable than the mobile remasters, which are graphically inferior, and a lot more buggy. Rockstar is also expected to launch these Definitive Edition remasters on mobile devices, but it's been almost a year now and they're nowhere to be seen.
