Red Dead Redemption 2 is a highly detailed open world game that really leans into the idea of realism. From lifelike character animations to weather to certain horse parts, RDR2 wants you to feel like you’re in America’s heartland circa 1899. The realism extends to the story’s methodical pacing and belief that you should spend a ton of time working your way through the world.

Still, RDR2 is a video game, and it’s a virtual playground filled with fun and hilarious possibilities. That’s where cheat codes come in to spice things up. Like RDR, there are a variety of cheat codes you can enter in to turn the realism notch down a tad and see what kind of trouble you can get into. From infinite ammo to unlimited drunkenness to virtual invulnerability, cheat codes can be fun to mess around with in RDR2.

Press Triangle on PS4, Y on Xbox One to open Cheats menu in the settings. Then press Triangle/Y again to type in a cheat. All of the codes are phrases, some of which require you to have specific newspapers in your inventory in order to activate them. Newspapers can sometimes be purchased after missions, so keep an eye out for opportunities. The cheat codes are often hidden as headlines in the newspapers.

We’ve compiled a list of known RDR2 cheat codes. Before you start typing in these codes you should first create a manual save. After activating a cheat code, you cannot save your game, nor can you unlock Trophies or Achievements. So if you were planning on running through the story with unlimited ammo, we’re sorry, that’s not possible. We’ll update this list as we discover more cheat codes.
