GTA V: Carmageddon With The Help of Cheats

By  | 

Chain reactions: they’re absolutely everywhere, from mediocre mid-90s action flicks, to upbeat Diana Ross pop hits, these cascading dominoes of destruction even make their way into the occasional video game-or-three. The latest title to take advantage of this gunpowder-trail plaything is none other than resident fire-starter Grand Theft Auto V.

Released just over three weeks ago, the amazingly successful sandbox title may have already taken to the net, by way of stuttering multiplayer contingent GTA Online, but some eager anarchists appear keen to prove that there’s plenty left to enjoy (and eviscerate) on the singleplayer side of things.

Going by the YouTube handle ‘Fysho,’ one inventive gamer has taken advantage of GTA V‘s seemingly unlimited spawn code cap (predecessor GTA IV only permitted one vehicle cheat at a time) to create a series of explosive chained blasts. Utilizing the game’s single-player-only cheat codes – available in full below – Fysho was able to pile over one hundred vehicles atop famous landmarks like Mt. Chiliad, as well as various crowded intersections, before sparking a continuous rolling explosion.

Why not invent your own amazing chain reactions with GTA V’s complete list of cheats:

GTA 5 Car Explosion

While the time-intensive task does result in some pretty spectacular vehicular carnage, Fysho’s exploits are merely the tip of the iceberg where cheats-empowered destruction is concerned. Imagine the same video with moon-bounce gravity, or as part of a crude Rube Goldberg machine (where one element serves only to operate the next). How about a flaming Ken Masters-style punch to kick off the fiery cycle?
