This page contains a list of Red Dead 2 Cheat Codes for the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Red Dead Redemption 2. Unlike GTA 5, RDR2 cheats are words and phrases found in the world, not button cheats. There are more than 30 cheat codes in Red Dead Redemption 2, and they activate things like Infinite Ammo, refill your health and stamina, and spawn horses.
To enter cheat codes in Red Dead Redemption 2, pause the game, select SETTINGS and press TRIANGLE (on PlayStation 4) or Y (on Xbox One) to enter the Cheats menu. Enter a code from the list below.
Once you enter a code, you’ll see a message confirming that you’ve unlocked the cheat — and if you save your game, you won’t have to enter it again. Then you can toggle the cheat OFF or ON in the Cheats menu.
When you enter Red Dead Redemption 2 cheat codes you must spell them correctly and use the exact punctuation listed below.
Some cheats have “prerequisites” or requirements that you need to meet before you can activate them. The most common prerequisite is purchasing Newspapers: After certain chapters or missions, Newspapers are unlocked with these cheat codes hidden in them. They must be in your inventory when you enter the code, or you will not be able to unlock or activate it. We list prerequisites in the table below and we’ve highlighted cheats you can use at any time with no prerequisites in green. TLDR: Buy every newspaper!
