GTA San Andreas: 5 best cheats for the PC version as of August 2021
Cheat Code: HESOYAM / INEEDSOMEHELP

This cheat also increases the player's Criminal Rating to 40 and repairs the vehicle that they're driving. This can be one of the most crucial cheats for avoiding failure during missions.
Cheat Code: ROCKETMAN / YECGAA

The jetpack cheat is one of the most vital cheats in the game. It helps in many precarious situations and often beats walking over long distances.
Cheat Code: FULLCLIP / WANRLTW
Effect: Grants unlimited ammunition (also affects pedestrians).
Players should note that this cheat code may occasionally glitch the game audio.
Cheat Code: JUMPJET
Effect: Spawns a Hydra near the player.
The Hydra is a vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) multirole jet fighter based on the British Aerospace Harrier II. It is one of the most fun-to-ride vehicles in the game, owing to its target-locking missiles and hovering capabilities.
Cheat Code: STATEOFEMERGENCY / IOJUFZN
Effect: Pedestrians riot.
This cheat code retrieves data from the Los Santos Riots, but on a statewide level. As a result, every single pedestrian in the game map will start rioting. Unlike previous GTA games, this code can be turned on and off at will. Keeping it on, however, may cause issues during some of the missions.
