Even more cheat codes have been discovered for Red Dead Redemption 2. Just as with other Rockstar Games titles, Red Dead Redemption 2 includes cheat codes, but it can be a chore to use them. Players began uncovering cheats shortly after the release of Red Dead Redemption 2. Since then, players believe that there are a total of 37 cheats available.
Unlike other Rockstar games, though, cheats in Red Dead Redemption 2 don't require pressing a combination of certain buttons. Instead, each cheat requires a specific phrase of words. The majority of these phrases are printed on newspapers that players can purchase throughout the game. As players progress through Red Dead Redemption 2's six-chapter story, buying these newspapers will unlock a new cheat code. Newspapers are available at in Annesburg, Blackwater, Rhodes, Strawberry, and Valentine.
The first step in using a cheat code in Red Dead Redemption 2 is to pause the game and go to "Settings." This will take players to the cheat menu. This is where the player can select previously used cheats or enter new cheat codes by pressing triangle on the PS4 or Y on the Xbox One. Enter the cheat code phrase by using the onscreen keyboard. Choose "done" once it's entered and a notification will pop up saying that the cheat has been activated. Players can also use this menu to turn cheats on and off. Please note that when a cheat is activated, players lose the ability to earn trophies or achievements. Also, make a note to save a game before activating a cheat: after it activates, saving is no longer available. Some cheats also come with prerequisites and won't activate if the player has not met those.
