The world of GTA V is teeming with things to see and do, not all of them legal. If you’re looking to feel the full force of the police and other authorities, you’ll likely be wondering exactly how to get 5 stars fast in GTA V. In this guide, we’ll talk you through how to do that both with and without a cheat code.
How to Get 5 Stars in GTA V Fast & Easy
The easiest way to get yourself 5 stars in GTA V is to simply use the cheat code to raise your wanted level. Each time you enter it, your wanted level will increase by one star. Simply enter it five times and you’ll have a five-star wanted level.

Increasing Your Wanted Level Without Cheats
If you’re looking to get 5 stars fast but without using cheats, then you’ll want to make sure that your character is fully armed and equipped to go on a bit of a killing spree.
You can shoot or otherwise kill civilians and police officers repeatedly. We found hiding inside a building was your best bet, as the police will continue to come inside using the same entries and methods.
Keep your reticle aimed at their entry point and gun them down. Keep an RPG or sniper at the ready for taking down any incoming police helicopters and you’ll reach 5 star wanted level in no time.
Alternatively, performing any of the following actions will also get you a 5-star wanted level:
- Keep killing civilians after the 3rd and 4th stars are given.
- Continuing to kill police and other law enforcement officers.
- Destroying a large number of cars, boats, bikes, helicopters, or other vehicles.
- Firing a missile in a Buzzard or P-996 Lazer within Los Santos International Airport.
