How to Unlock Cheat Codes in Red Dead Redemption 2

by Josh Hawkins

Like most Rockstar games over the past several years, Red Dead Redemption 2 cheat codes allows for players to unlock and make use of a variety of fun things. While Red Dead Redemption 2 cheats won’t work like they did in Grand Theft Auto V, players can still unlock an assortment of codes—including infinite ammo—to make use of in Arthur Morgan’s adventure.

How to Unlock Cheat Codes

Before we dive into how to unlock all of the cheat codes in Red Dead Redemption 2, let’s cover a few important things first. One thing to keep in mind—perhaps one of the most important—is that any achievements and trophies will be disable for your save file if you activate any of the cheat codes that we’ll outline below. Of course, if you don’t care about achievements or trophies then this isn’t an issue, however it is definitely something to keep in mind before using the codes below.

Unlike Grand Theft Auto V—which used button combinations—players will need to activate cheats from a menu in Read Dead Redemption 2. You can view this menu by opening up the Settings menu and then pressing Y or Triangle depending on your console of choice. From here you can see the list of cheats you have unlocked as well as enter in new phrases to unlock more cheats.
