How to enter cheat codes in Red Dead Redemption 2

Entering cheats in Red Dead Redemption 2 is a little hidden. But once you know it, it’s pretty easy and straight forward.

To enter cheats, go to the pause menu of the game and access the settings. In the bottom right of the screen should be a cheat prompt to go to the cheats sections. On PS4 / PS5, you can press Triangle and Y on Xbox.

When you enter the screen, you should see a long list of locked cheats. To unlock all cheats, enter the cheat codes from below. Once you unlock a cheat, you don’t have to enter it again and can quickly access it on this screen.

Warning notice when using cheats in Red Dead Redemption 2

When you enable cheats, you won’t be able to progress further in the game and won’t be able to unlock Achievements or Trophies for that playthrough duration. But don’t worry, the game won’t let you save your progress. So cheats in RDR2 are just for fun to mess around.
