​Make Life A Little Easier With Red Dead Redemption 2's Cheat Codes

​Make Life A Little Easier With Red Dead Redemption 2's Cheat Codes

Finally, the spectacular story of Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang, as told by Rockstar Games through Red Dead Redemption 2, is ours to explore forever.

This means my efforts to 100% Assassin's Creed Odyssey, find the best players in FIFA 19 Ultimate Team, and play the Fallout 76 BETA will all have to go on hold. How long for? Who knows.


I probably should've given my final few hours to these titles last night - bar 76, it's not a 24/7 thing - but rather than getting stuck into my overwhelming backlog, I spent my time researching Red Dead 2. More specifically, learning how I can break it. You know, if I ever need to.

As listed by IGN, a selection of cheat codes have been revealed just in time for you to start the campaign, but I highly recommend you ignore them. For now.

In total, there's around 30 codes in Red Dead 2 but not all of them have been found. Here's every game-breaking code listed so far, and how to activate it:

Cheat - Code (Prerequisites)


Infinite Ammo - Abundance is the dullest desire
(Newspaper Required: New Hanover Gazette No. 27, purchased in Valentine during Chapter 1)

Heavy Weapons - Greed is American Virtue
(Newspaper Required: Get newspaper after completing the Chapter 03 mission Advertising, the New American Art)

Reveal entire map - You Long for Sight but See Nothing
(Newspaper Required: Purchase newspaper after completing the Chapter 03 mission Blood Feuds, Ancient and Modern)

Set Dead Eye Level 3 - I shall be better

Set Dead Eye Level 5 - I seek and I find

Set Health, Stamina, and Dead Eye Bars to Full - You flourish before you die

Fortify Health, Stamina and Dead Eye Bars - You Seek More Than The World Offers
(Newspaper requirement unknown)

Increase Horse Whistle Range - Better than my dog

Instant Drunk - A fool on command

Spawn race horse - Run! Run! Run!

Spawns War Horse - You are a beast built for war
(Newspaper requirement unknown)

Spawns wagon with one horse - Keep your dreams simple

Spawn Circus Wagon - Would you be happier as a clown?
(Newspaper requirement unknown)

Raise Honor rating - Virtue Unearned is not virtue
(Newspaper requirement unknown)

As said, not every code has been listed so far, so we'll keep you up to date as the community discovers them. Hopefully you won't need to break the game early on, but they will provide unique opportunities later down the line - an instant invincible, pissed up, War Horse riding Arthur? I'd pay to see that any day.

Ah, I almost forgot. Here's how you input them:

  • Pause the game, hit settings and press Y (Xbox One)/TRIANGLE (PS4) to enter codes from the list above
  • If you entered the code correctly, you'll be greeted with a confirmation message. If you save your game, you don't have to enter it again - you can then toggle the code ON/OFF in the cheat menu
  • It's worth noting that spelling codes correctly is crucial for them to work, but capitalisation doesn't matter

Let us know on Twitter if you'll use any of these codes, or if you prefer playing games without them.
