Rockstar Game's latest release, Red Dead Redemption 2 on PS4 and Xbox One, is a game where you will spend a lot of time uncovering all its secrets and details. You can spend 50 plus hours just completing the main story and reducing accumulating wealth and glory. But if you're the one looking for a shortcut – who wants to find a quick way to success while living a crime in the last days of the wild West – have we covered you. Like the original game and GTA V, Red Dead 2 has a variety of cheat codes that unlock more resources, with some injection of various gimmicks and quirks in your game.
To find the Cheats menu, press the pause button and select Settings option. In this menu, tap Triangle or Y (on PS4 and Xbox One respectively) to pull up the Cheats menu. From here you will find a long list of locked cheats. Basically, you do not know what any of these do, or how to unlock them. Many of these tags can be activated by inserting the correct expression, but others will require some extra time and effort.
In addition to finding passwords while exploring the world, where someone is written into the ground, through the game I will find newspapers for sale in cities, and some of them offer clues on how to unlock these extra fun options. Several newspapers will become available after completing key assignments, which you will see in detail in news articles. While many of these cheats present some mostly benign bits of fun ̵
1; for example, keeping your character, Arthur Morgan, sustained full-activation of these codes at any time will have some impact on your save game. When you enable these tags, all trophies and achievements will be disabled on this particular file. As a result, before trying any of these tags, make sure to create your own file for the main saving.
With over 30 unlock codes, some of which have specific requirements, we've collected a list of cheats we have discovered so far. We also have a separate feature that discusses some of the most entertaining and best cheats in Red Dead Redemption 2. Be sure to check back with GameSpot as we update this page with new codes and how to find them.
