Now that Red Dead Redemption 2 is wowing gamers all over the world, you might be looking for ways to make the game a little easier or interesting. If cheats are your kinda bag, there’s plenty of them going around to keep you occupied.

While some can be used straight off the bat, others will require you to be at a certain level of completion or have certain items in your possession to work. Take a look below for each.

How do I enter cheats for Red Dead Redemption 2?

To enter a cheat code, all you need to do is pause the game, go to SETTINGS, then press triangle if you’re on PlayStation 4, or Y if you’re on Xbox One. This will take you to the cheats menu where you can enter a code.

Once the code is entered, you’ll receive a message letting you know that the cheat has been unlocked. If you save your game, you won’t have to enter it again. To toggle the cheat on or off, just head back to the cheats menu and you’ll be able to do it by selecting it from the list.

When entering the cheats, you’ll need to type them in exactly as they’re displayed below, including punctuation.
