Is there an easy way (even a cheat) to get money in this game?
So far, all I've seen out there is knocking over people at ATMs...

I just play it every now and then, usually just to start a full on police car chase, hehe...but just wondering if there's a quick way to generate cash, as I rarely have the time or patience for actual missions with this game...(the fight mechanics seem clunky to me)...

Thanks.

I don't think there is a cheat for money. Atleast not for the Playstation version.

What you could do is drive around and look for the armored cars. Steal them and blow them up and there's tons of cash in them.

You could always sit outside steveies garage and pump him full of cars.
And the armored van gives you about a grand each time you blow one up, best to smash it up till it explodesbecausse you won't get any police attention.

Thanks. I'm on the 360.
I haven't really done a lot of missions yet (so can't sell cars), and I've got no cash...

Thing is, I don't play the game long, so just want to have some fun...I've no interest in really playing to the "end" or anything....

I guess I could do the cheats that give me some hardware, then go knock over an armored car... Could care less about police...I can usually escape that. For some reason I'm a hell of a driver in that game... (wonder if the helicopter cheat would make that getaway easier...)

I would be the same really its far more to steal a car and get into a high speed chase rather than do all the missions and get 100% completion and so on heres some cheats from the link above that would possibly suit you more:



Weapons tier 1
Dial "4865550100" on the cell phone. This will unlock the baseball bat, handgun, shotgun, MP5, M4, sniper rifle, RPG, and grenades. Note: This phone number translates to "GUN-555-0150". This code prevents the "Cleaned The Mean Streets" achievement from being earned.

Weapons tier 2
Dial "4865550150" on the cell phone. This will unlock the knife, Molotov cocktails, handgun, shotgun, Uzi, AK47, sniper rifle, and RPG. Note: This phone number translates to "GUN-555-0100". This code prevents the "Cleaned The Mean Streets" achievement from being earned.

Remove Niko's wanted level
Dial "2675550100" on the cell phone. Note: This phone number translates to "COP-555-0100". This code prevents the "One Man Army" and "Walk Free" achievements from being earned.

Add one star to Niko's wanted level

Spawn Annihilator police helicopter
Dial "3595550100" on the cell phone. The Annihilator is armed with rockets. Note: This phone number translates to "FLY-555-0100". This code prevents the "One Man Army" and "Walk Free" achievements from being earned.

Spawn Cognoscenti
Dial "2275550142" on the cell phone. Note: This phone number translates to "CAR-555-0142".

Spawn Turismo
Dial "2275550147" on the cell phone. Note: This phone number translates to "CAR-555-0147".



Easy health
Dial "911" on your cell phone. You will reach a voice menu. Dial "2" for an ambulance. When the ambulance arrives, the paramedic will restore your health for approximately $1,000. After he refills your health, kill him to get your money back. -From: Mike

Easy money
Go to an ATM, then cause a traffic jam to the area. Wait for someone to take money from the ATM, then kill him or her. Make sure to block any nearby roads so the ambulance cannot get to the murdered victim. Take the money they dropped on the ground. Then, run a short distance away, and go back. The money should have respawned on the ground. You can repeat this as many times as desired. You can also kill more people taking their money from the ATM to increase the amount of money that respawns. -From: Khairol161

Find an area with a lot of people. Then, position yourself a decent distance away, and enable the "Spawn Jetmax" code. The boat should spawn above the people, fall on them, and kill them without raising your wanted level. You can then pick up the money dropped by the people killed. Repeat this process as many times as desired. -From: Vernon Reis

After completing all of Stevie's 30 vehicle thefts, go to the garage in south Bohan. Then, enter one of the "Spawn" vehicle codes, and take the vehicle to the garage to get the indicated amount of money as long as the vehicle is in perfect condition. Repeat this as many times as desired. -From: Elan Gedalia

Cognoscenti: $9,000
Comet: $6,000
NRG-900: $2,500
Sanchez: $1,200
SuperGT: $11,000
Turismo: $11,000

After completing all of Stevie's 30 vehicle thefts, take a taxi to the Perseus on Pyrite Street and Bismarck Avenue. Walk to the Grotti car dealership with a baseball bat. Use your baseball bat to break open the window on the east side of the building near the tree that has a Turismo parked behind it. Try not to damage this car. Take the Turismo, and drive it to Stevie's car shop. Taking the Charge Island bridge to Bohan is the best route. Stevie will give you approximately $10,000 for the car, depending on its condition. You can then take a taxi back to the dealership and do it again.

Steal an armored truck, and blow it up to get approximately $1,100 from the piles of money surrounding the wreckage.

There is a glitch in Aldeney at the intersection of Tudor and Port Tudor, close to the prison where you visit Gerald. You can find a total of nine armored trucks arriving back-to-back. Highjack one, then block the road. Another one will appear. Blow them up one-by-one. There is a total of approximately $1,100 on each truck, which is especially useful when just starting out or if you need money.

Steal a Securicar, and blow it up to get approximately $1,000 from the piles surrounding the wreckage. To do this without getting a wanted level, you must drive it and get it damaged until it catches fire and explodes. Do not attack it with a weapon or you will get a two star wanted level. If the smoking Securicar stops running and still is not on fire, use your cell phone to call anyone, then hang up while it is dialing. The Securicar will start again, allowing you to do the last amount of damage to get it to catch on fire and explode.

Go to a strip club, and kill the strippers. Each one drops about five or six wads of cash, but all the guards will attack you.

Easily lower wanted level
If you want to get rid of your wanted level, simply start a mission. Your wanted level will instantly go away. If there were any police cars chasing you, the police will be gone but the cars will still be there. -From: D2

To lose your wanted level, simply enter a safehouse, and save your progress. When you wake up, your wanted level will be gone.

Repairing engine
If your vehicle breaks down and will not start, call any number saved in your cell phone or "911", and your engine should start again.

Thanks. Yeah, I found the codes, just surprised there's no "money" code. Next time I play, I guess I'll try the weapons thing, and knock over some ATMs or armored cars...at least until I can do the mission to sell the cars.

Then, the spawn car, sell car bit seems to be a quick easy way....
