All Red Dead Redemption 2 cheat codes list

We've listed all of Red Dead Redemption 2's cheat codes so you can max out your Dead Eye, line your pockets with money, decrease your Wanted level, and more.

There's a whole posse of Red Dead Redemption 2 cheats out there ready to round up, letting players go on a rampage with infinite ammo, heavy weapons and more.

RDR2's cheat codes are pretty easy to access, but you'll often have to go about finding them first, or go about keeping up to date with the newspapers in-game. On top of that, there are some rules you'll want to be aware of before using cheats in Red Dead Redemption 2.

When it comes to finding cheats, that "flip" button for turning photographs, maps and other documents over is essential. But to give you a helping hand, here's all Red Dead Redemption 2 cheat codes for you to use during your game.


Red Dead Redemption 2 cheat codes list - Newspapers

We've listed Red Dead Redemption 2's newspaper cheat codes separately to others as these codes will often require you to purchase a specific newspaper before you are able to input the code successfully. These newspapers are acquired from Saint Denis, and will unlock naturally as you make progress with Red Dead Redemption 2's main story.

If you have been neglecting purchasing newspapers or fear you may have missed any, do not fret. All available newspapers that you unlock will remain available for purchase in Saint Denis throughout your playthrough.

How to use cheat codes in Red Dead Redemption 2

To use cheat codes in Red Dead Redemption 2, you will first want to open up the main menu. Here, open your 'Settings'. Next, look for 'Cheats' in the lower right-hand corner and press the corresponding button; this should be Triangle on PlayStation and Y on Xbox.

Press the button a second time, and you'll then be able to manually input a cheat code of your choice.

It is worth noting, however, that while cheats are active you will not be able to save your game, or unlock any Achievements and Trophies. So, using cheats is really just there to allow players to let their hair down for a while, rather than for aiding with progression.
