Mega Man 2 Passcodes and Tips – NES Classic Edition

by Prima Games Staff

Marked as the best selling title of the beloved Mega Man series, it was no surprise when Mega Man 2 made its way into the lineup of games on the NES Classic Edition. Originally released in 1988, the game went on to sell over 1.5 million copies, making it the best-selling title of the Mega Man series. Today we’re going to take a look at this classic action-platformer and teach you some of its hidden secrets and passwords.

How to Avoid Taking Damage

If you want to stay alive longer, you can employ this easy “hack” to make shots pass right through Mega Man, causing no harm to the player character. While playing through the game, pay careful attention to enemy attacks. When the enemy shot is about to hit Mega Man press the Start button and pause the game. Then, when you unpause the game, the shot will pass through Mega Man completely without causing any harm to him. It’s a bit tedious, but it is a good way to dodge some harmful shots if you’re running low on health.

How to Get Infinite Boomerang, Metal Blade, and Bubble Lead

 When playing Mega Man 2, you can actually manage to get unlimited ammunition for your Boomerang, Metal Blade, and Bubble Lead. To do this you’ll just need to follow some simple rules.

When using your Boomerang, make sure you only shoot 7 of them off at a time. Then, press Start and select the Boomerang again to reload your ammunition, giving you a virtually unlimited supply of Boomerangs. You can also do this trick with the Metal Blade and the Bubble Lead. However, you can only shoot 3 of the Metal Blade at a time, and only 1 of the Bubble Lead at a time, otherwise they won’t automatically refill themselves.
