There are many Red Dead Redemption 2 cheats available and they will make you feel invincible once you’ve enabled them.

RDR2 is off to a glorious start.

The game is full of exciting adventures, a rich storyline, unique game play, cool characters, and amazing graphics.

If you love gaming as much as we do, then this game in particular will keep your eyeballs glued to your TV set for long hours on end without you even realizing it.

As you would expect, Red Dead Redemption 2 is packed with crazy cheats just like its predecessor.

But if you activate any of the available cheats throughout the game, you won’t be able to collect trophies, achievements, or earn money.

In other words, anything you do after enabling cheats won’t count.

As you probably already know, RDR2 is an action-adventure game developed by Rockstar Games, which is the same company that publishes Grand Theft Auto (GTA) games.

GTA games had cheat codes, the previous Red Dead Redemption game also had them, so it’s no surprise that RDR2 has them too.

However, in RDR2 cheats are enabled by entering words or complete phrases instead of using complicated button combinations like in GTA.

Words and phrases make things easier to remember. So you won’t have to be constantly looking up your favorite hacks online.

Red Dead Redemption 2 cheat codes will give you access to infinite ammo, heavy weapons, unlimited money, and more.

How to Enter Cheat Codes in Red Dead Redemption 2

To enter cheat codes in RDR2, you have to pause the game, then navigate to Settings, and press the triangle if you’re on a PlayStation 4, or press Y if you’re using the Xbox One.

This will open the cheat codes menu where you’ll see a long list of locked Red Dead Redemption 2 cheats. You can unlock most of them by entering the codes below.

Keep in mind that once you enter a cheat code, you will get a warning message. From that point on you won’t be able to save your single player game progress or collect trophies, among other things.

Newspaper Cheats

Below you will find every cheat code we know about. But first lets talk about newspaper cheats, which are easy to find and use.

Simply go to the nearest newspaper seller and get yourself a newspaper.

Once you’ve purchased a newspaper, flip it over and look for the secret word or phrase at the bottom of the page.

When you find it, go to the settings menu and press triangle (or Y on Xbox) to enter the code.

Also, some cheat codes have requirements you need to meet before activating them. Purchasing newspapers is sometimes one of those requirements.

Another way to find cheat codes is by examining items dotted around the map.

However, if you don’t want to waste time looking for cheats on your own, you can take advantage of other players’ hard work.

How do I do that, you ask? By simply using any of the available codes below.
