Nintendo Switch Cheats

Please note that saving after using cheats can cause permanent side-effects to your game, in some cases preventing 100% completion!

While there is nothing specifically wrong with using any of the cheats below, saving with some of them can result in strange side effects while playing the game. These range from unexpected pedestrian behaviour to important mission characters killing themselves without warning (such as Madd Dogg), which can prevent 100% game completion.

To be safe, we recommend only saving your game when using cheats which don't affect pedestrians.
