IMG_0406TouchArcade forum member Ozzytheking has been on a roll lately discovering cheats inside of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars [App Store]. Each of these cheats are entered by moving the magnetic letters around on the mission replay board to spell out the various cheats. These mission replay boards can be found inside of any safe house.

Entering any of these codes will change your weapon load out:

LOADOA - Grenade, nightstick, pistol, minigun, assault rifle, micro SMG, and stubby shotgun.
LOADOB - Molotov, tazer, dual pistols, flamethrower, carbine, SMG, and dual-barrel shotgun.
LOADOC - Mine, chainsaw, revolver, flamethrower, carbine, SMG, and dual-barrel shotgun.
LOADOD - Flashbang, bat, pistol, RPG, carbine, micro SMB and stubby shotgun.

Entering these codes have other effects:

CASHIN - Grants $10,000 extra cash.
LIFEUP - Refills your life to full.
SHELLY - Refills your armor to full.
TRIPPY - Unknown
COPIN - Raises your wanted level by 1 star.
COPOUT - Lowers your wanted level by 1 star.

A cheat is successfully entered when the letters return to their original position and a message is displayed at the bottom of the screen. Other cheats are actively being searched for in this thread on our forums and for more information on Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, check out our review.

    "Tazer" is actually spelled "Teaser" within the game, I think it's supposed to be a fictional brand name or something.

    Here's how you do a burnout:
    "accelerate, slide finger to brake (until complete stop) slide finger back to accelerate button (hold for a while) then tap accelerate once."

    I found that the best method is from a stop, you can just slide you finger real quick from gas to brake to gas, hold a sec, then release and tap the gas, and off you go.

  • darwiniandude

    TA: I'm all for the sharing of cheat codes, but could you please make them roll over text or on a click through link or something? Just skimming the front page I now know a few codes I'd rather not.
    Please hide them, a little, in future :)

    • Mark

      just don't use them ;)

    • chris

      there is a thread in the main forum.. for cheat codes if that is what you mean.

      chris.

      • omg

        I agree they should hide the cheats from the main page. I do not want to read them or know they exist, it is a fairly big spoiler for people who don't want to know them and hate cheats.

    • chris

      when you are in your safe house. look to the right of your computer. there will be a board on the wall that is normally for saving your missiosn so if you want to replay them you can. then just spell the words anywhere you want on the board. they do not have to be real close just in the same line so you could go with

      c a s h i n would work fine. if you try to do them real close you bust your head against your iphone.

    You know you don't have to use them, no one is forcing you so stop complaining if you don't want to see them
    then don't read this page. It's simple, some people like the gta cheats an that's fine that's why they make them. If you haven't noticed they have ALWAYS made cheats for gta so get use to it, it's nothing new my god stop complaining so damn much it's annoying, you guys act like little girls. The beauty of freedom is you can do what you want so use them
    or don't it's your choice. Just stop crying about it.

  • suzuki04bike

    the easiest way to make the cheats easy to use is u just go to that white board and put all the letters in your fav cheat codes together but u just not put in the last letter but keep that last letter of the cheat close to the code ( example. copou (keep the "t" close to the code.)) then u exit the white board and then go back on the white board and the word (for example. "copou") will be together with the "t" close to it i always choose above the place where the "t" is suposed to be. when the cheat works it will always go back to the same place where u origionally placed it.

    to make an easy way to get alot of money is to take the cheat "cashi" and put the letters where the spot where u you first go to when u enter the white board and put the word right on the top left corner going across the top of the white board. DONT FORGET to put the "n" in cash in right unnder the area where its supossed to go. then exit the white board and then go back onto it and the word "cashi" (with the "N" right under the spot where its supposed to go) . then just keep on bringing the "N" up to the word to create "cashin" and when the cheat works it will always go back to the same place where u origionally placed it......i was able to get 45,000,000 dollars when i did this.

    you can find a go kart somewhere at beach hove..i think it's at the lower left part of the map,near a beach.. whilst the tank is at the airport, somewhere near the entrance..but i think youd be under a mission when u get in the tank.. so why not buy a tank at boabo instead..

    to drive a tank on the road get the car next to it and get the car behind the tank and drive when touching the road hop in the tank and you free ride in the tank
