What would a Rockstar Game be without cheat codes? We got your back thanks to Reddit and a few other places so here are Red Dead Redemption 2 cheats & how to use them.
Grand Theft Auto V had you enter mobile numbers to activate cheats but it’s different in Red Dead because well, Cell Phones don’t exist. In Red Dead Redemption 2, you’ll be entering phrases and unlocking, yes unlocking cheats as you progress in the game. Some cheats can be unlocked at any time while some have some pre-requirements to unlock. To open the Cheats menu, press the pause button and select the Settings option. Then press Triangle or Y depending on your console to open the Cheats Menu.
You’ll see a lot of locked cheats but they can be activated by using the correct phrase. Some can be done from the get-go while others require a bit of work. Hints to the phrases can be found in the game world. They can be written on the ground or you can find clues to them in Newspapers that you can buy. Activating cheats will disable Trophies and Achievements so make sure to have a separate save file for this.
