10 A Fool On Demand
Ever fancied wondering the wildlands of America during the height of the western era? Of course, you have. However, have you ever fancied doing it drunk? Definitely. So why waste your time and money drinking to get drunk when you can get instantly drunk?
To use this cheat, enter the code ‘A fool on demand’ in the cheat menu. Drink up, cowboy!
You may find it hard to understand certain things but worry not as it doesn’t affect gameplay in any meaningful way. You can read more about this in an article on TheGamer here.
9 Run! Run! Run!
Traversing the large plains of Red Dead Redemption 2 can be a beautiful and relaxing experience. Now, whilst you could endlessly roam and take in the scenery, sometimes you are going to want to get from A to B in a speedy manner. Lucky for you, the cheat menu gives you a speedier option to your much-loved horse.
Use the cheat code ‘Run! Run! Run!’ to spawn a racehorse which will let you travel through the massively open world at the speed of lightning. Well, not really, but a whole lot faster than usual!
8 You Want Freedom
Sometimes you just want to cause chaos without dealing with the consequences. There’s nothing more fun than running around in a Rockstar game wreaking havoc. However, raised wanted levels can get trickier and trickier to deal with.
Bye bye, sheriff!
By using the cheat code ‘You want freedom’ you can reduce your current wanted level and continue to wreak havoc by trolling NPCs and having a good old shootout. So, if you’re the kind of player who loves all the action without the consequences, this is the cheat for you.
7 You Want Punishment
Now, contrary to the last entry, some players love a good challenge. However, it can sometimes be a grind trying to get your wanted level to max out, and those who fancy a quick challenge won’t want to tediously grind to get to it.
Bring it on!
Using the cheat code ‘You want punishment’ you can increase your current wanted level and get straight into a challenging shootout against the law. So, if you fancy taking on the sheriff’s forces right of the bat, this is the cheat code for you.
6 Eat Of Knowledge
A popular mechanic in games derived from the all too common crafting, recipes, and meal crafting is an important feature in Red Dead Redemption 2. Red Dead is all about realism, so of course, you’re going to have to cook meals with the correct ingredients back at camp.
Using the cheat code ‘Eat of knowledge’ you will instantly learn all the crafting recipes in the game. That means your palate will become much more complex and you can enjoy all the recipes the game has to offer. However, you will still need to obtain the ingredients and use the camp to cook these new meals!
5 Greed Is American Virtue
We’re all pretty greedy--it's inherently human to be greedy. Everybody loves free stuff, but sadly in life, there are no cheat codes (wouldn’t that be nice?). Lucky for you, Red Dead Redemption 2 has plenty of cheat codes, and there is one which gives you a lot of free stuff!
Use the cheat code ‘Greed is American Virtue’ to get a free loadout of heavy weapons including a pump-action shotgun and much more. For this cheat code to work you do require a newspaper, which you obtain after completing the Chapter 3 mission, Advertising.
4 Abundance Is The Dullest Desire
Being a huge, highly realistic open-world RPG, ammo is scarce and every bullet counts. This is fantastic for those of us who love strategy and planning since we have to conserve ammo whenever necessary.
However, for those gamers who like to fire blindly at enemies, or just generally have bad aim, this scarcity of ammo can be detrimental to gameplay. Worry not! If you enter the cheat code ‘Abundance is the dullest desire’ you will be granted with infinite ammo. So, you can do all the blind firing you wish.
You do require the newspaper ‘New Hanover Gazette No.27’, purchased in Valentine during Chapter 1.
3 You Long For Sight And See Nothing
As with most massively open world games, the gigantic maps are obscured until later in the game. As you progress, you unlock new areas of the map and to unlock the entire map you must visit every corner.
This sense of exploration is fun for most players and adds a new level of gameplay to a deeply intricate game. However, sometimes you just want to see the map in all its unlocked glory. Using the cheat code ‘You long for sight and see Nothing’ you will reveal the entire map. You will need to purchase a newspaper after completing the mission Blood Feuds, Ancient and Modern in Chapter 3.
2 Vanity. All Is Vanity
Fashion is everything in video games. Who doesn’t desire the rarest, most flashy skins in Overwatch and legendary armor in Assassins Creed Odyssey? In Red Dead Redemption 2 there are an array of outfits to unlock, allowing you to customize Arthurs’s fashion sense.
Using the cheat code ‘Vanity. All is vanity’ you will unlock all the outfits in Arthur’s wardrobe. This means no matter what the occasion, you’ll have an outfit to fit every mood.
1 The Lucky Be Strong Evermore
Stamina gauges are the bane of a gamer’s life. Watching a stamina gauge slowly deplete as you flee from overpowered enemies leaves you regretting that last save being over ten minutes ago. Traveling long distances at a snail’s pace due to low stamina can drive anybody insane, especially with the never-ending panting from the character.
Now, if you use the cheat code ‘The lucky be strong evermore’ you will unlock unlimited stamina for Arthur. You can run to your heart's content as Arthur becomes the world’s best long-distance runner.
You will need to purchase a newspaper after completing Chapter 5 for this cheat code to work.
