'Red Dead Redemption 2' Cheats: Infinite Ammo, Health Refills and More

Red Dead Redemption 2 has cheats? Of course it does! Like any good Rockstar game, there are a big list of cheats players can use to have a little fun while riding across the Wild West. However, these cheats are a bit unique compared to other games. Here's how you access all the different cheats in Red Dead Redemption 2.

A few things to note before we get to the cheat codes, you'll need to enter long phrases of text to unlock each cheat, and capitalization and punctuation matter. Be sure to save your game immediately after so you don't have to re-enter the code again. Also, you should save before turning on any cheat code, because once a cheat is activated, players can no longer earn Achievements/Trophies.

To get to the cheats menu in Red Dead Redemption 2, pause the game and scroll down to the Settings option. Once in the Settings menu, press Triangle/Y to enter the cheats menu. Also, many cheats are locked away until the player does something in-game. This is usually buying a specific newspaper. Each cheat requirement is noted below.
