Warnings/Cautions

Cheats allow the player to access a variety of features and resources in the game immediately. However, in Red Dead Redemption 2, this instant gratification comes at a steep price:

  • Using cheats will block Achievements/Trophies, being awarded to players on the PlayStation 4, or Xbox One.
  • Using cheats will block game saves.

How to Enter and Use Cheats

Cheat codes are hidden within the world and must be discovered as the game will not register or accept a code regardless of its acquisition unless it has been located in the game itself. To add new cheats, pause the game and go to "Settings". Then press "Triangle" (PS4) or "Y" (Xbox) to enter the Cheat menu. Type in the cheat phrase below to unlock it; save the game to have it added permanently to the cheat menu. Once added, it can be toggled on and off.

Cheats that are linked to a newspaper require the player to have that particular edition in their inventory in order to successfully input the code.


Note: Cheats ARE NOT case sensitive and they do require the correct commas and punctuation.
