Twisted Metal 2 Cheat Codes – All Passwords

The GOAT of PS1 games if you ask me.

My excitement is through the roof since I saw the trailer for the Twisted Metal TV series that’s coming up as Twisted Metal 2 was my favorite PS1 game. Twisted Metal 2 is available in the PlayStation Store, and all of the nostalgia from the 90s is kicking in for every player that has laid their hands on this masterpiece. As a matter of fact, I still remember Twisted Metal 2 Cheat Codes by heart, and I am now proudly delivering them to you, our beloved reader, straight from my memory lane. Who knew that this knowledge would be useful a quarter of a century later? Here are all passwords (cheat codes) for Twisted Metal 2.

All Twisted Metal 2 Level Passwords

Back in the old days, pre-made passwords were made for gaining access to later levels, instead of having a save file. After you win a level, you would get a password that you can later type in to resume where you left off. In the Password menu, you can type the following passwords in order to gain access to different levels. I have sorted the codes alphabetically when it comes to characters, and in level order when it comes to levels.
