Here Are All Of Red Dead Redemption II's Cheat Codes (So Far)

by Javy Gwaltney on Nov 16, 2018 at 11:00 AM

Red Dead Redemption II has a lot going for it: beautiful story, brutal and gripping combat, fascinating realistic mechanics. Oh, and a bunch of cheat codes. You remember those right? It was before the days of being charged money for "EXP boosts" in games. Anyway, Red Dead Redemption II has a lot of them! Some of them still haven't been unlocked, but here's all of them for now and how you input them.

How To Input Codes

To input cheats, do the following:

Go to settings. Look in the bottom right corner. You'll see the button you need to press to access the cheats menu (Triangle or Y depending on your platform). Press it. You'll come to a screen filled with locked codes. You need to input certain phrases to unlock them. Keep in mind, after you use a cheat, saving becomes disabled as do achievements/trophies.
